Revelation 17:1-18 Then one of the seven angels who had the seven bowls came and said to me, "Come, I will show you the judgment of the great prostitute who is seated on many waters...
think about it.
How is the "woman" in this chapter described (17:1-6)? What happens to the "woman" (17:16)? John identifies the "woman" as what (17:18)? What does this chapter tell you about Satan's tactics both now and in the future?
If you felt a little overwhelmed with all the symbolism, imagery and details as you read Revelation 17 today, let me assure you, you are not alone. There is just a lot going on and many things packed into this chapter. So rather than try to work through what's taking place and all the goings on and meanings, I suggest listening to Dr. Kroll's in-depth teaching on Back to the Bible today. I'm confident there will be much to take away from the program.
One thing we see again here in Revelation 17 is Satan's determination to rebel against and overthrow God. And, once again, we see that that is never going to happen. Did you notice verse 14? "They will make war on the Lamb, and the Lamb will conquer them, for he is the Lord of lords, and King of kings, and those with him are called, chosen and faithful."
So what does knowing that Jesus is the Lord of lords and King of kings mean for you today? Tami W.
P.S. I really meant it when I said you should listen to Dr. Kroll today. The program is called Ecclesiastical Babylon. Check it out here.
