"[Revelation2217] Mystery Babylon the Great... Uncovered..."


 

I am sure that you have read this verse:

 

Rev 17:5

And upon her forehead [was] a name written, MYSTERY,G3466 BABYLONG897 THE GREAT,G3173 THE MOTHERG3384 OF HARLOTSG4204 ANDG2532 ABOMINATIONSG946 OF THE EARTH.G1093

 

Perhaps we are all familiar with the various interpretations and understandings or misunderstandings of this verse.   Since I have come a much better understanding of what the Abomination of Desolation is, what it will look like in the natural, I have thought to try and see if my suspicions are correct according to the incredible design and structure of the Bible.   If God has placed incredible design throughout the Bible as has been demonstrated over and over, why would this verse be any different?

 

How many of you have read the book, The Two Babylons by Alexander Hislop?   His book details the similarity between the Catholic Church and the pagan rituals of Babylon.   Although he may have made have uncovered similarities, I don’t believe that his findings are conclusive.   Other well-meaning Eschatologists have believed that this “woman” is modern-day New York City, the United States, or even the Saddam Regime in Iraq.  But I have a problem with every single one of their interpretations even though there are similarities in each of them.  Rather than taking time to discuss the issues that I have with the current interpretations, I thought it would be good to examine the structure of this verse and see if there is any clue to the mystery it holds.

 

First off….

 

Greek Strong’s # 1666 = Elisha

 

… appears to be “scarred” with the “Mark of the Beast”, and it has puzzled me ever since I have seen it.   The following verse is the first time these words appear in the Bible.

 

Verse # 1666

Exod 6:10

And the LORD spake unto Moses, saying,  Gematria = 895

 

This verse gematria occurs more than any other verse gematria in the Bible, and it seems to point to:

 

Hebrew Strong’s # 895 = Babylon

Greek Strong’s # 895 = without life

 

Then we see:

 

NT Verse # 1666

Mark 14:56

For many bare false witness against him, but their witness agreed not together.

 

We know that Elijah is a type/shadow of the primary witness mentioned in Revelation 11.   The structure of the Bible demonstrates over and over that Elisha is a type/shadow of the second witness mentioned in Revelation 11, but is a woman like Esther.  (You will have to read previous articles to see for yourself.)

 

From the structure of the Bible, it would appear that this person IS the MARK for the PRIZE of the High Calling…

 

1666 Verses from the End of the Bible

Phil 3:14

I press toward the mark for the prize of the high calling of God in Christ Jesus.

 

There are other pointers as well…

 

Greek Strong’s # 32 = Angel

 

323  (cubed) = 32,768 = (31,102 Verses of the Bible + 1666)

 

 

Annus mirabilis is a Latin phrase meaning "wonderful year" or "year of wonders" (or "year of miracles"). It was used originally to refer to the year 1666

 

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Annus_Mirabilis

 

According to the Oxford English Dictionary, the first known written usage of the Latin phrase "Annus Mirabilis" is as the title of a poem composed by English poet John Dryden about the events of 1666. The phrase "annus mirabilis" translates as "wonderful year" or "year of miracles". In fact, the year was beset by great calamity for England (including the Great Fire of London), but Dryden chose to interpret the absence of greater disaster as miraculous intervention by God, as "666" is the Number of the Beast and the year 1666 was expected by some to be particularly disastrous.

 

In the year 1666, Isaac Newton made revolutionary inventions and discoveries in calculus, motion, optics and gravitation. As such, it has later been called Isaac Newton's "Annus Mirabilis." It is this year when Isaac Newton observed an apple falling from a tree, and hit upon gravitation (Newton's apple). He was afforded the time to work on his theories due to the closure of Cambridge University by an outbreak of plague. Going to his country home, he thought about many things that, in Cambridge, he did not have the opportunity to do with such devotion.

 

1666 - In Roman numerals, the year 1666 contains all the numerals in order: MDCLXVI.

 

So…  we can see a number of “pointers” that if we paid attention to, they would be pointing to something “significant” about 1666.

 

I have been a regular attendee at a satellite of Lifechurch.tv since the last day of the sermon series, “Elijah”, and girl that I have sat next to until she was married recently had a last name of MISER.

 

Webster’s Vol 2 Word # 1666 = Miser

 

So… on a personal level, I can’t help BUT NOTICE the frequency of the pointers.

 

KJV Word # 16660 = Twins

 

… is the first mention of TWINS in the Bible which is a picture of the TWO WITNESSES like GEMINI.

 

Gen 25:24

And when her days to be delivered were fulfilled, behold, [there were] twins in her womb.

 

There is so much indication in the frame of scripture that the Two Witnesses are destined to be joined together in marriage at the level that was originally intended by God when He defined what MARRIAGE should be.   BUT….  there is a problem…. a BIG PROBLEM.

 

The King’s Daughter (Psalms 45:13) is like the “Lost Princess” who has been locked in a TOWER all her life and not aware of who she is.  This story has been told over and over in many forms with a princess trapped in a Dragon’s Lair.   If you ignore all the fairytale stuff, you are in essence looking at the Woman of Revelation 12.

 

The dragon that is described…

 

Rev 12:3

And there appeared another wonder in heaven; and behold a great red dragon, having seven heads and ten horns, and seven crowns upon his heads.

 

Notice it is the same as the BEAST of Rev 13:1.   Then we see a woman again with the same BEAST.

 

Rev 17:7

And the angel said unto me, Wherefore didst thou marvel? I will tell thee the mystery of the woman, and of the beast that carrieth her, which hath the seven heads and ten horns.

 

Because there is such a stark difference in the descriptions of the woman of Revelation 12 and the woman of Revelation 17, we cannot fathom that they are the SAME WOMAN.  You may wonder how I can even DARE to suggest she is the same.   My best answer is…. It’s complicated, but true. 

 

You may want to review what I have written about DESOLATE Woman and the Abomination that makes her desolate.

 

http://www.fivedoves.com/letters/sep2011/wadeb99.htm

 

Now… I have said that on the day that this woman, “Brooke”, gets married that God will strike her with leprosy as if “spitting” on his daughter, and when her newly wed husband that has betrayed her into committing the abomination sees her covered with leprosy, he REFUSES her, and within the hour she is lamenting as a virgin girded in sackcloth for the husband of her youth (Joel 1:8) ….  (she is widowed).

 

Look at the structure of the Bible and compare…

 

BABYLONG897 THE GREAT,G3173 = 897 + 3173 = 4070

 

Verse # 4070

Num 12:10

And the cloudH6051 departedH5493 from off the tabernacle;H168 and, behold, MiriamH4813 [became] leprous,H6879 [white] as snow:H7950 and AaronH175 lookedH6437 upon MiriamH4813, and, behold, [she was] leprous.H6879

 

MYSTERY,G3466 BABYLONG897 THE GREAT,G3173 = 3466 + 897 + 3173 = 7536

 

Hebrew Strong’s # 7536 = Spit

 

Verse # 4074

Num 12:14

And the LORDH3068 saidH559 unto Moses,H4872 If her fatherH1 had butH3417 spitH3417 in her face,H6440 should she not be ashamedH3637 sevenH7651 days?H3117 let her be shutH5462 outH2351 from the campH4264 sevenH7651 days,H3117 and afterH310 that let her be receivedH622 in [again].

 

Greek Strong’s # 4074 = Peter

 

This is the ROCK that Christ spoke of because Verse # 4074 sets everything back in order.

 

Looking at a couple of verses before…

 

Verse # 4072

Num 12:12

Let her not be as one dead, of whom the flesh is half consumed when he cometh out of his mother's womb.

 

… we see this word…

 

Greek Strong’s # 4072 = Fly

 

Rev 12:14

And to the woman were given two wings of a great eagle, that she might flyG4072 into the wilderness, into her place, where she is nourished for a time, and times, and half a time, from the face of the serpent.

 

butH3417 spitH3417  =  3417 x 2 = 6834

 

Hebrew Strong’s # 6833 = bird, sparrow

Hebrew Strong’s # 6834 = Zippor  (meaning bird, sparrow)

 

6833 Verses from Mal 4:6

Ps 144:6

Cast forthH1299 lightning,H1300 and scatterH6327 them: shoot outH7971 thine arrows,H2671 and destroyH2000 them.

 

That is the word that spells BROOKE in Hebrew, but translated “CAST FORTH”.

 

Hebrew Strong’s # 7536 = Spit

 

|<-- 421 Verses -->|<-- 7536 Verses -->|

|<---------- New Testament ----------->|

 

Hebrew Strong’s # 421 = Lament

 

Joel 1:8

LamentH421 like a virginH1330 girdedH2296 with sackclothH8242 for the husbandH1167 of her youth.H5271

 

How can a virgin lament for the husband of her youth unless he dies before the consummation of the marriage?

 

Verse # 420

Gen 17:22

And he left offH3615 talkingH1696 with him, and GodH430 went upH5927 from Abraham.H85    Gematria = 1299   (Brooke)

 

22022 Verses from the End.

1Kgs 9:28

And they cameH935 to Ophir,H211 and fetchedH3947 from thence gold,H2091 fourH702 hundredH3967 and twentyH6242 talents,H3603 and broughtH935 [it] to kingH4428 Solomon.H8010

 

That is the first time the infamous Gold of Ophir is mentioned and the 420 talents points to Verse # 420.

 

THE MOTHERG3384 OF HARLOTSG4204   = 3384 + 4204 = 7588

 

Phone # 7588  = SLUT

 

TULSA is A SLUT spelled backwards.

 

Do you think I am hitting the nail on the top of the head?

8857

 

Do you recognize 8857?

 

That is the reverse of…

 

Phone # 7588  = SLUT

 

Verse # 28857

2Cor 3:15

ButG235 even untoG2193 this day,G4594 whenG2259 MosesG3475 is read,G314 the vailG2571 isG2749 uponG1909 theirG846 heart.G2588

 

Notice the veil…

 

Verse # 1134

Gen 38:14

And she put her widow's garments off from her, and covered her with a vail,H6809 and wrapped herself, and sat in an open place, which [is] by the way to Timnath; for she saw that Shelah was grown, and she was not given unto him to wife.

 

Verse # 1135

Gen 38:15

When Judah saw her, he thought her [to be] an harlot;H2181 because she had covered her face.

 

Greek Strong’s # 1134 = Wife

Greek Strong’s # 1135 = Wife

 

Notice the reference…

 

Greek Strong’s # 3814 = damsel

 

There is a lot more here that I am not going to be able to get to today, but the more I look at the structure of the Bible, the more that the MYSTERY WOMAN appears to be the SAME woman who is caught in the very act of a spiritual adultery.

 

But as the scripture say of the woman of Isaiah 54

 

Isa 54:8

In a little wrath I hid my face from thee for a moment; but with everlasting kindness will I have mercy on thee, saith the LORD thy Redeemer.

Isa 54:9

For this [is as] the waters of Noah unto me: for [as] I have sworn that the waters of Noah should no more go over the earth; so have I sworn that I would not be wroth with thee, nor rebuke thee.

 

Then we see we see the greatest demonstration of the unfathomable mercy of God.   For in THIS GREAT MERCY is a TRUE PICTURE of God seen, and every heart will SEE who God IS.

 

Exod 34:5

And the LORD descended in the cloud, and stood with him there, and proclaimed the name of the LORD.

Exod 34:6

And the LORD passed by before him, and proclaimed, The LORD, The LORD God, merciful and gracious, longsuffering, and abundant in goodness and truth

Exod 34:7

Keeping mercy for thousands, forgiving iniquity and transgression and sin, and that will by no means clear [the guilty]; visiting the iniquity of the fathers upon the children, and upon the children's children, unto the third and to the fourth [generation].

 

It is more than just seeing the flesh of a person, but SEEING the thoughts and intentions and heart of GOD.   THAT is SEEING GOD.
