We spend a lot of time trying to figure out who and what The Beast is, but seemingly very little time looking for the woman who rides The Beast. And, there are some interesting challenges that we have in trying to figure out the identity of The Great Whore.
The Book of Revelation gives us clues to the identity of The Great Whore. But, even though those clues are definitive, they still leave us with more questions than answers. I have tried to answer as many of those questions as possible, this week. And, the reason why I have tried to do that is wrapped up in a command by God found in Revelation 18.

That command is here:
And I heard another voice from heaven, saying, Come out of her, my people, that ye be not partakers of her sins, and that ye receive not of her plagues. – Revelation 18:4
God wasn’t making a suggestion. It’s a command, and refusing to follow a command like that would be a sin. And, I do not think that any of us want to disobey God.
The problem is that we aren’t completely sure WHO or WHAT the Great Whore is.
I’ve chosen what I believe to be the three possibilities that I’ve heard talked about the most and tried to see how they fit, according to the clues that God has left us in Revelation.
It is now left to you to decide whether you live in – or too close to – the Mother of Harlots. If the answer is ‘yes’, you know what to do.
WEEKEND SHOCKCAST: Beast Rider
So, what did we talk about this week?
We introduced the subject and the book by John Price – The End of America. We identified the three main theories about the Great Whore and looked at the first verse in Revelation 17. We showed how the Beast Rider committed fornication with the kings of the Earth and made the people drink of that fornication. We looked at her beauty and the luxury of her apparel. And, we described the remaining clues and tried to reach a conclusion.
So, let’s talk about that.

The Articles That You Will Find in This WEEKEND SHOCKCAST
MONDAY – The Beast Rider – Part One
As we move ever deeper into the Last Days, the identity of the major players mentioned in the prophecies of these Last Days become ever more important. The world is going to suffer at the hands of those players, and we want to be ready when they come on the scene.
Our natural focus is The Beast and the Antichrist. And, I’ve talked about who and what they are. But, there is one entity that I haven’t given that much attention to:
The Beast Rider
This is the Great Whore that rides the Beast. And, we aren’t really sure who she is.
TUESDAY – Beast Rider – Part Two
The Beast that the woman rides is first mentioned in Revelation 11:7, but only briefly. The Beast is then discussed in detail in Chapter 13 – but, not the Beast Rider. It is only in Chapter 17 that we see the Great Whore, who sits on many waters.
As I asked yesterday, the question is about her identity.
Who IS the Beast Rider?
It is interesting to see that there are three different theories as to the identity of this woman:
- The Roman Catholic Church
- The United States of America
- Mecca – in Saudi Arabia
That last one was as much a surprise to me as it probably is to you. But, for those who have come out of Islam and embraced Jesus Christ as their Lord and Savior, it makes some sense.
WEDNESDAY – Beast Rider – Part Three
We can now start identifying how each of the three main theories about the Beast Rider fit within prophecy. And, if anything does NOT fit, well… that theory has been proven wrong.
This Beast Rider has a certain relationship with the world that identifies her. She commits fornication with the kings of the Earth. The people of the Earth drink the wine of her fornication. She sits on the Beast which is full of the names of blasphemy. She is beautiful and wears luxurious clothing and jewelry. And, she carries a golden cup that is full of abominations and filthiness.
So, let’s look at that.
THURSDAY – Beast Rider – Part Four
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.
FRIDAY – Beast Rider – Part Five
Today, we bring this discussion to a close. Hopefully, I will have laid out the pieces of the puzzle in such a way that you can decide for yourself who the Beast Rider is – and, by process of elimination, who The Beast is.
Yesterday, we talked about her relationship with The Beast and the richness of her apparel, and the fact that she holds in her hand a golden cup, full of abomination.
Today, we talk about the names on her forehead, the fact that she is a city, and that all who are a part of her are commanded by God to leave her.
I truly hope that you’ll be ready for this
