We continue to make our way slowly through Revelation 17, comparing the Beast Rider to what we see in the world today.
Yesterday we saw her relationship with the kings of this world, as well as her direct relationship with the inhabitants of the Earth. Today we will talk about her relationship with The Beast and her appearance.
By the way, of the three theories that we are examining, remember that what is not a part of the Great Whore, is actually a part of The Beast.
What is not the Rider… is the Beast.

Beast Rider – Part Four
We are trying to figure out which of the three main theories fit this Great Whore that rides The Beast:
- The Roman Catholic Church
- The United States of America
- Mecca – in Saudi Arabia
Mecca is looking like a distant third, right now – while the US and the Roman Catholic Church appear to be neck-and-neck.
Will it be a photo finish?
So, let’s dive in where we left off, yesterday, in Revelation 17:
So he carried me away in the spirit into the wilderness: and I saw a woman sit upon a scarlet coloured beast, full of names of blasphemy, having seven heads and ten horns.
And the woman was arrayed in purple and scarlet colour, and decked with gold and precious stones and pearls, having a golden cup in her hand full of abominations and filthiness of her fornication: – Revelation 17:3-4
This is where I think that we have a little more to work with.
I think that we have an idea of what this beast is. It’s a Satanic Babylonian power and mysticism that goes back to the beginning of time. The idea of becoming a god, equal to God is at the center of what The Beast is – although we are skipping over a HOST of detail when we describe The Beast so simply.
The Great Whore is separate from The Beast and cooperates with it. But, she is NOT a part of The Beast. I think that is crucial to remember as we try to identify her.
As we did yesterday, let’s start with the Roman Catholic Church.
The Roman Catholic Church
Those of us who have been uncovering the massive number of crimes perpetrated by the Roman Catholic Church, we are shocked at just how vile and evil she is. The Catholics have been engaged in every vile and filthy evil there is. The Vatican really is one of the most repugnant organizations that has ever been created.
So, it is little wonder that our brethren of ages gone by would label her The Beast, or at least the Antichrist. And, she could very well be all that.
However, we’ve seen the rise of another hand in human affairs that is far more secretive and vile than even the Catholics. We call them the banksters and the Illuminati, and while they are not a part of the Roman Catholic Church in any way, they DO have a relationship with her.
In fact, the Jesuits even had a hand in assisting the Bavarian arm of the Illuminati in their formation. And it is the Jesuits that appear to have been the main facilitators of the connection between the Vatican and the Illuminated Ones.
So, if I had to decide whether the Vatican was a part of The Beast, or whether she was the Whore… I would lean towards her being the Whore.
The Vatican is certainly beautiful. She has a beauty that appeals to people anywhere and everywhere. And, I believe that part of that beauty comes from her holy beginnings – from the churches at Rome that chose to corrupt themselves, rather than stick to the truth of God.
And yes, there is some truth to be found in the Roman Catholic Church. Not a lot. Some.
Of course, it doesn’t take a lot of truth to endow a lie with beauty and power. And, as I have described, she is full of abominations, filthiness and great cruelty. When Mayer Amschel Rothschild wanted to get a secret society started, he went to the perfect person: a Jesuit priest, Adam Weishaupt.
The Catholics kept all the records about Babylonian Mysticism and occult magic. They had everything that you needed to know about being a good Satanist. And, Weishaupt handed it over to the Illuminati.
And, if the Catholics are the Great Whore, then her beauty and the golden cup that she holds is a part of her Christian beginnings. But, that cup holds true abomination.
The United States of America
This is where I believe America begins to lose the race with the Catholics for being the Great Whore. I’m not saying that she’s out of the running here, but in comparison to the Vatican… I’m just not sure that America has the same ‘sex appeal’ that the Vatican has – at least in comparison to the thousand plus years that the Vatican has been around.
Of course, I’m not saying that America isn’t beautiful. Everyone, everywhere, around the world wants some kind of connection with the US. No other country in the world has the same kind of magnetism as America. For most of my 19 years in Asia, people would look at me and wonder why I wasn’t back in the place that THEY wanted to be.
Only now, has America’s appeal started to dim. Fewer and fewer people are wondering why I am in Taiwan or Israel, instead of Indiana.
I also have a mixed view of America’s origins. There are some who make a big deal about the Christian origins of America, but most of what they say just isn’t true.
These great architects of the American political system were NOT Christian:
- George Washington
- Thomas Jefferson
- Benjamin Franklin
None of those men were Christian. They may have referenced God and talked about God, but they did NOT follow God. Of this, I am completely certain.
The rest of the Founding Fathers of America were something of a mixed bag. Many were clearly not Christian. Some may, or may not have been. It’s hard to say.
And, if you want confirmation of America’s unChristian beginnings, you need only look at the architecture and layout of America’s capitol. Babylonian mysticism and Greco-Roman mythology are everywhere. There are few places in America that are less Christian that Washington D.C.
And, it was designed that way, from the beginning.
In fact, I believe that America has had a vital and important role in the rise of The Beast system that we see today. She has become a part of The Beast, not just riding it.
But, I also cannot escape America’s role in bringing the light of the gospel to the farthest reaches of the world. And, she also acted as a refuge to those seeking to escape religious persecution in Europe.
The light of Christ found a home in the United States, which is why I believe that God has withheld His judgment upon her.
But, I believe that the golden cup her corruption is full, and America is ready for the judgment of God.
For the time is come that judgment must begin at the house of God: and if it first begin at us, what shall the end be of them that obey not the gospel of God? – 1 Peter 4:17
Is America the Great Whore?
I’m not sure. We’ll see.
Mecca – Saudi Arabia
I’m afraid that Islam, Mecca and Saudi Arabia are falling farther and farther behind. It is hard for me to see how she can compete with either the Roman Catholic Church or America in terms of beauty and corruption.
Yes there is much that is attractive about Islam. And, many are attracted to that awful religion. But, many many more are repulsed by her.
Remember also that we are looking at the Great Whore through the eyes of John. John was the one who thought of the Great Whore as amazing and beautiful. And, I seriously doubt that John would feel the same way about Islam – even Mecca or Saudi Arabia.
But, it will be the next two verses that will show us who is who.
Lord willing, we will address verses five and six tomorrow, in part five.
I truly hope that you’ll be ready for this
