Something to Think About –
God’s last Message to the people -
We saw that Revelation gave us 9 identifying characteristics that describes the woman (church), end-time, modern Babylon, Babylon, this unfaithful church, as dressing in the same colors as the priests of the Old Testament. There is just one color missing: blue. What is that color, and why should it matter?
Exodus 28:5; "They shall take the gold, blue, purple, and scarlet thread, and the fine linen,”
Exodus 28:15; "You shall make the breastplate of judgment. Artistically woven according to the workmanship of the ephod you shall make it: of gold, blue, purple, and scarlet thread, and fine woven linen, you shall make it.”
We notice in Revelation 17:4 the colors of the Priest’s garment.
Revelation 17:4; “The woman was arrayed in purple and scarlet, and adorned with gold and precious stones and pearls, having in her hand a golden cup full of abominations and the filthiness of her fornication.”
According to Numbers 15:37, the blue in the priestly garment in the Old Testament was a symbol of the remembrance of and adherence to the 10 Commandments of God. The woman of Revelation 17 claims to be God’s priest, God’s representative, but in the absence of the color blue, John, the author of Revelation, is communicating that this unfaithful church has forgotten the 10 Commandments of God. Clearly, she cannot be Christ’s true bride, for Christ’s true bride at the end of time keeps the Commandments of God. See Revelation 12:17; 14:12; 22:14. gold mother of the bride dresses
If you research history and the Scriptures, you will find that the above identifying characteristics make it clear that the identity of End Time Babylon is none other than the Roman Church. Her daughters are those Churches which are spawned out of her, coming after Martin Luther and the Lutheran Church, and adhere to the Roman, Babylonian doctrines, doctrines, and teachings.
Daughters look similar to their respective mothers, yet are not exact; the daughters do not believe in the union of Church and State. Yet End-Time Babylon is a fallen, unfaithful group of Churches which adhere to the teachings, doctrines, and commandments of men and ignore the plain teachings of the Word of God. They thus create a confusion-laden environment. End-Time Babylon is fallen; she is the mother of harlots of Revelation 17.
What is Jesus doing at this time that His people should be paying close attention too? We will see next time as we continue: -
