It is The Church!The setting of Rev 17 is right after the First-Trump Rapture takes place.Rev 17:10 says, “And there are seven kings (leaders of Babel, Babylon II, Media-Persia, Greece, Holy Roman Empire, Roman Ecclesiastical Empire and Babylon III): five are fallen (leaders of Babel, Babylon II, Media-Persia, Greece, Holy Roman Empire), and one is ( the Pope, leader of the Roman Ecclesiastical Empire), and the other (False Prophet, leader of Babylon III) is not yet come; and when he cometh, he must continue a short space” (i.e., the shortened Great Tribulation).Rev 17:14 says, “ These shall make war with the Lamb, and the Lamb shall overcome them: for he is Lord of lords, and King of kings: and they that ARE called, and chosen, and faithful. “ The first Rapture has just taken place. The ten kings have no kingdom yet.Rev 17:12 says, “And the ten horns which thou sawest are ten kings, which have received no kingdom as yet; but receive power as kings one hour with the beast. “Mark 13:14 says, “But when ye shall see the abomination of desolation, spoken of by Daniel the prophet, standing where it ought not, (let him that readeth understand,) then let them in Judea flee to the mountains.”That happens Mid-Trib. So these saints will be living during the Great Tribulation that shall be shortened. Their Rapture, the Last-Trump Rapture, will come on the Day of God’s Wrath (Rev. 6:17; 7-9,14).Agape,Marilyn Ageemjagee@verizon.net
