Revelation: The Great Harlot and the Scarlet Beast
Join us this Sunday, May 26, at 10:00am for worship. Pastor Barry has been taking us on a journey through the Book of Revelation. This week he focuses on Revelation 17 where John has the vision of the Great Harlot and the Scarlet Beast.
In chapters 17 through 19 we are given an in-depth preview of the rise and fall of Satan’s evil empire on earth during the tribulation. Since Adam and Eve sinned and lost their righteousness and their God given dominion over the earth, Satan has taken it and has had his way on earth with the majority of mankind. After the fall every person would be born a slave into his dark kingdom. When Jesus Christ came and redeemed the earth and mankind from the curse of sin the war was technically won but the battle will continue until Jesus comes back to take by force all that was lost. Until Jesus brings His kingdom to earth the hostile enemy is fighting tooth and nail to corrupt and destroy all that he can. Satan wants to hurt God and inflict as much damage as he can while he can. He knows his time is short. The greatest damage that Satan can do is to steal, kill and destroy what God loves most and that is people. Satan’s methods have always been the same. He tries to separate man from God by getting him to worship anything but God. His greatest desire is to ultimately have people worship himself and for a short time he will succeed on a nearly world-wide scale. In this chapter we see the climax of Satan’s rise to power and worship of the masses just before the end of his freedom on earth.
Revelation 17:1-2 NKJV
1 Then one of the seven angels who had the seven bowls came and talked with me, saying to me, “Come, I will show you the judgment of the great harlot who sits on many waters, 2 with whom the kings of the earth committed fornication, and the inhabitants of the earth were made drunk with the wine of her fornication.”
