In her was found the blood of prophets
and of the saints,
and of all who have been killed on the earth." (Revelation 18:24);
for it cannot be that
a prophet perish out of Jerusalem.
It has been part of the Protestant propaganda to spread that the ‘Whore of Babylon’
mentioned in the Book of Revelation is the Catholic church. Well, what does the Bible say in fact;
Revelation mentions ‘The woman you saw’ is ‘the
great city’ that rules over the kings of the earth." (Revelation 17:18)
Also said about 'the whore' is that;
In her was found the blood of prophets and of the saints,
and of all who have
been killed on the earth." (Revelation 18:24);
and after the destruction of the ‘whore’ it is said;
Re:18:20: Rejoice over her, thou heaven, and ye holy apostles
prophets; for God hath avenged you on her.
Revelation mentions the ‘great city’ as ‘where
also the Lord was crucified’
Their bodies will lie in the street of the great city,
which is figuratively
Sodom and Egypt, where also their Lord was crucified. (Rev 11:8)
Then ‘the whore’ is 1) the Great city
2) in her was killed the prophets and saints
3) it is where also the Lord was crucified.
Then it is beyond doubt that the ‘whore’ referred to in Revelation is none
other than the ‘disobedient Jerusalem’.
Instances showing the whore to be Jerusalem can be seen in the gospels and the letters
of St. Paul as well.
M't:22:1-14: And Jesus
answered and spake unto them again by parables, and
said, The kingdom
of heaven is like unto a certain king, which made a
marriage for his son, And sent forth
his servants to call them that were
bidden to the wedding: and
they would not come. Again, he sent forth other
servants, saying, Tell them
which are bidden, Behold, I have prepared my
dinner: my oxen
and my fatlings are killed, and all things are ready: come
unto the marriage.
But they made light of it, and went their ways, one to his
farm, another to his merchandise: And the remnant took
his servants, and
entreated them spitefully, and slew them.
But when the king heard thereof, he
was wroth: and he sent forth his armies, and destroyed
those murderers, and
burned up their
Servants sent forth are the prophets. ‘those bidden and would not come, and
who ill treated the servants’ are the Jews. The ill treated servants are the prophets. Thus He let ‘their
city’ be burned up (M't:22:7). “Their city” being Jerusalem.
And in Luke Jesus says;
Nevertheless I must walk to day, and to morrow, and the day following:
for it cannot be that a prophet perish out of Jerusalem. Lu:13:33:
So, no prophet was killed ‘outside Jerusalem’.
Jesus says the same about Jerusalem in Mt 23:34-39
another parable: There was a certain householder,
planted a vineyard, and hedged it round about, and digged a
in it, and built a tower, and let it out to husbandmen, and went
a far country: And when the time of the fruit drew near, he sent his
to the husbandmen, that they might receive the fruits of it. And the
husbandmen took his servants, and beat one,
and killed another, and stoned
another. Again, he sent other servants more than the first: and they did unto
them likewise. But last of
all he sent unto them
his son, saying, They will
my son. But when the husbandmen saw the son, they said among
This is the heir; come, let us kill him, and let us seize on his
And they caught him, and cast him out of the vineyard, and slew
him. When the lord therefore of the vineyard
cometh, what will he do unto
husbandmen? They say unto him, He will miserably destroy those
wicked men, and will let out his vineyard unto other husbandmen, which
render him the fruits in their seasons. Jesus saith unto them, Did ye
read in the scriptures, The stone which the builders rejected, the same
become the head of the corner: this is the Lord's doing, and it is marvellous
our eyes? Therefore say I unto you, The kingdom of God shall
taken from you, and given to a nation bringing forth the fruits thereof.
when the chief priests and Pharisees had heard his parables,
they perceived that he spake of them.
‘M't:23:34: Wherefore, behold, I send unto
you prophets, and wise men, and
scribes: and some of them ye shall kill and crucify;
and some of them
shall ye scourge in your synagogues, and persecute them from city to city: That
upon you may come all the righteous blood shed upon the earth, from the
blood of righteous Abel unto the blood of Zacharias son of Barachias, whom ye
slew between the temple and the altar. Verily I say unto you, All these things
shall come upon this generation. O Jerusalem, Jerusalem, thou that killest
the prophets, and stonest them which are sent unto thee, how often would I
have gathered thy children together,
even as a hen gathereth her chickens under
her wings, and ye would not! Behold, your house is left unto you desolate.
also said the wisdom of God, I will send them prophets and
apostles, and some of them they shall
slay and persecute:
Lu:19:41-44: And when he was come near, he beheld the
city, and wept over it,
Saying, If thou hadst
known, even thou, at least in this thy day, the things which
belong unto thy peace!
but now they are hid from thine eyes.For the days shall
come upon thee, that
thine enemies shall cast a trench about thee, and compass
round, and keep thee in on every side, And shall lay thee even with the
ground, and thy children within
thee; and they shall not leave in thee one stone
because thou knewest not the time of thy visitation.
Lu:23:27-31: And there
followed him a great company of people, and of women,
which also bewailed
and lamented him. But Jesus turning unto them said,
Jerusalem, weep not for me, but weep for yourselves, and for
your children. For, behold, the days
are coming, in the which they shall say,
the barren, and the wombs that never bare, and the paps which
never gave suck. Then shall they begin to say to the mountains, Fall on us; and
to the hills, Cover us. For if they do these things
in a green tree, what shall be
done in the dry?
And St Paul’s words;
1Th:2:14-15: For ye, brethren,
became followers of the churches of God
which in Judaea are
in Christ Jesus: for ye also have suffered like things of
your own countrymen, even as they have of the
Jews: Who both killed
the Lord Jesus, and their own prophets, and have
persecuted us; and
they please not God,
and are contrary to all men:
We have the testimony in the Old Testament prophets;
Isa:1:21: How is the faithful city become an harlot!
Isa:23:16: Take an harp, go about the city,
thou harlot that hast been forgotten;
Jer:2:20: For of old time I have broken thy yoke,
and burst thy bands; and thou
saidst, I will not transgress; when upon every high hill and under
tree thou wanderest, playing the harlot.
Jer:3:1: They say, If a man put away his wife, and
she go from him, and become
another man's, shall he return unto her again? shall not that land be greatly
polluted? but thou
hast played the harlot with many lovers; yet return again
to me, saith the Lord.
Jer:3:3: Therefore the showers have been withholden,
and there hath been no
latter rain; and thou hadst a whore's forehead, thou refusedst
to be ashamed.
Jer:3:9: And it came to pass through the lightness of
her whoredom, that
she defiled the land, and committed adultery with stones and with stocks.
Jer:13:27: I have
seen thine adulteries, and thy neighings, the lewdness
of thy whoredom, and thine abominations on the hills in the fields. Woe
unto thee, O Jerusalem! wilt thou not be madeclean? when shall it once be?
Jer:3:6: The LORD said also unto me in the days
of Josiah the king, Hast thou
seen that which backsliding Israel hath done? she is gone up upon every high
mountain and under every green tree, and there hath
played the harlot.
Eze:16:2: Son of man, cause Jerusalem to
know her abominations,
Eze:16:15: But thou didst trust in thine own beauty, and
playedst the harlot
because of thy renown, and pouredst out thy fornications on every
passed by; his it was.
Eze:16:35: Wherefore, O harlot, hear the word of the LORD:
Eze:16:41: And they shall burn thine houses with fire, and execute judgments
upon thee in the sight of many women: and I will cause thee
to cease from
playing the harlot, and thou also shalt give no hire any more.
Eze:23:2-4: Son of man, there were two women,
the daughters of one mother:
And they committed whoredoms in Egypt; they committed whoredoms
their youth: there were their breasts pressed, and there
they bruised the teats
of their virginity. And the names of them were Aholah the
elder, and Aholibah
her sister: and they were mine, and they bare sons and daughters. Thus were
their names; Samaria is Aholah, and Jerusalem Aholibah.
Ho:2:5: For their mother hath played the harlot: she that conceived them
hath done shamefully: for she said, I will go after my lovers, that
give me my
bread and my water, my wool and my flax, mine oil and my
Ho:3:3: And I said unto her, Thou shalt
abide for me many days; thou shalt
not play the harlot, and thou shalt not be for another
man: so will I also be for thee.
Ho:4:15: Though thou, Israel, play the harlot, yet let not Judah offend;
not ye unto Gilgal, neither go ye up to Beth-aven, nor swear,
The LORD liveth.
Na:3:4: Because of the multitude of the
whoredoms of the wellfavoured
harlot, the mistress of witchcrafts, that selleth nations through
and families through her witchcrafts.
Then the whore refers to apostate Jerusalem, as told in the book of Isaiah, Ezekiel, etc.
The two brides of the Lord
In Revelation, apostate Jerusalem or the harlot is destroyed
and in the next scene we see the New Jerusalem being presented without spot or wrinkle, the
new bride (Rev 17; 18;19;2; 20:9; 21:1,2). The two brides of the Lord. The apostate bride of the
Old Testament (Isa 54:6, Jer 3:1, Jer 3:20) and the new bride of the New Testament (Rev 17; 18;19;2;
true and righteous are his judgments: for he hath judged the
great whore, which did corrupt
the earth with her fornication, and hath avenged
the blood of his servants
at her hand.
Let us be glad and rejoice, and give honour to him: for the marriage
of the Lamb
is come, and his wife hath made herself ready. And
to her was
that she should be arrayed in fine linen, clean and white: for the fine
linen is the righteousness
The Whore (Old Jerusalem) is destroyed and the Bride of the Lamb
whom Revelation calls ‘The New Jerusalem’ is brought forward. And the new Jerusalem again is introduced as ‘the
Re:21:2: And I John saw the
holy city, new Jerusalem, coming down from God
out of heaven, prepared as a bride adorned for
Re:21:9: And there came
unto me one of the seven angels which had the seven
vials full of the seven
last plagues, and talked with me, saying, Come hither,
I will shew thee the
bride, the Lamb's wife. Re:21:10: And he carried me away
in the spirit to a great and high mountain, and shewed
me that great city, the
holy Jerusalem, descending out of
heaven from God,
And what more proof do we need when Revelation tells that (Re:17:3: the whore sat upon
a scarlet coloured beast, full of names of blasphemy), while the Catholic church was the protector and not
a blasphemer who preserved the true scriptures, the Bible from corruption from the time it was written and still spreads the
same true scriptures. The Scriptures in the hands of the non catholics happen to be the one preserved by the Catholic church.
From all this it is plain that, it is mere protestant propaganda to defame the Catholic church. It is hell’s
attempts of trying to prevail against the Lord’s church. Like the Lord reminded His believers, ‘If they have called
the Master of the house Beelzebul, what will they call His disciples.’
