Revelation 18, The Whore of Babylon depicted in 1498 by Albrecht Durer

This is the 6th and final installment in a Revelation Bible study mini-series focusing on identifying the real Whore of Babylon (AKA Babylon the Great), using Old and New Testament scripture as evidence.

Open your Bible to Revelation 17

[Revelation 17:1] Then one of the seven angels who had the seven bowls came and spoke with me, saying, “Come here, I will show you the judgment of the great harlot who sits on many waters,”

[Revelation 17:2] with whom the kings of the earth committed acts of immorality, and those who dwell on the earth were made drunk with the wine of her immorality.”

[Revelation 17:16] “And the ten horns which you saw, and the beast, these will hate the harlot and will make her desolate and naked, and will eat her flesh and will burn her up with fire.”

[Revelation 17:17] “For God has put it in their hearts to execute His purpose by having a common purpose, and by giving their kingdom to the beast, until the words of God will be fulfilled.”

[Revelation 17:18] “The woman whom you saw is the great city, which reigns over the kings of the earth.”

Turn in your Bible to Revelation 18

[Revelation 18:1] After these things I saw another angel coming down from heaven, having great authority, and the earth was illumined with his glory.

[Revelation 18:2] And he cried out with a mighty voice, saying, “Fallen, fallen is Babylon the Great! She has become a dwelling place of demons and a prison of every unclean spirit, and a prison of every unclean and hateful bird.”

[Revelation 18:3] “For all the nations have drunk of the wine of the passion of her immorality, and the kings of the earth have committed acts of immorality with her, and the merchants of the earth have become rich by the wealth of her sensuality.”

[Revelation 18:4] I heard another voice from heaven, saying, “Come out of her, My people, so that you will not participate in her sins and receive of her plagues;”

[Revelation 18:5] “For her sins have piled up as high as heaven, and God has remembered her iniquities.”

[Revelation 18:6] “Pay her back even as she has paid, and give back to her double according to her deeds; in the cup which she has mixed, mix twice as much for her.”

[Revelation 18:7] “To the degree that she glorified herself and lived sensuously, to the same degree give her torment and mourning; for she says in her heart, ‘I sit as a queen and I am not a widow, and will never see mourning.'”

Turn in your Bible to Isaiah 47

[Isaiah 47:1] “Come down and sit in the dust, O virgin daughter of Babylon; sit on the ground without a throne, O daughter of the Chaldeans! For you shall no longer be called tender and delicate.”

[Isaiah 47:2] “Take the millstones and grind meal. Remove your veil, strip off the skirt, uncover the leg, cross the rivers.”

[Isaiah 47:3] “Your nakedness will be uncovered, Your shame also will be exposed; I will take vengeance and will not spare a man.”

[Isaiah 47:7] “Yet you said, ‘I will be a queen forever.’ These things you did not consider nor remember the outcome of them.”

[Isaiah 47:8] “Now, then, hear this, you sensual one, who dwells securely, who says in your heart, ‘I am and there is no one besides me. I will not sit as a widow, nor know loss of children.'”

[Isaiah 47:12] “Stand fast now in your spells and in your many sorceries with which you have labored from your youth; perhaps you will be able to profit, perhaps you may cause trembling.”

[Jeremiah 7:32-34] “Therefore, behold, days are coming,” declares the LORD, “when it will no longer be called Topheth, or the valley of the son of Hinnom, but the valley of the Slaughter; for they will bury in Topheth because there is no other place. “The dead bodies of this people will be food for the birds of the sky and for the beasts of the earth; and no one will flrighten them away. Then I will make to cease from the cities of Judah and from the streets of Jerusalem the voice of joy and the voice of gladness, the voice of the bridegroom and the voice of the bride; for the land will become a ruin.”

Jeremiah 25

[Jeremiah 25:1-2] The word came to Jeremiah concerning all the people of Judah, in the fourth year of Jehoiakim the son of Josiah, king of Judah (that was the first year of Nebuchadnezzar king of Babylon), which Jeremiah the prophet spoke to all the people of Judah and to all the inhabitants of Jerusalem, saying,

[Jeremiah 25:9-10] ‘behold, I will send and take all the families of the north,’ declares the LORD, ‘and I will send to Nebuchadnezzar king of Babylon, My servant, and will bring them against this land and against its inhabitants and against all these nations round about; and I will utterly destroy them and make desolation. ‘Moreover, I will take from them the voice of joy and the voice of gladness, the voice of the bridegroom and the voice of the bride, the sound of the millstones and the light of the lamp.’
