In the book of Revelation, the Great Harlot symbo- lizes the unmatched ungodly nature of the End Time generation preceding the return of Christ.
Today just as scriptures predicted: Idolatry, corrup- tion, gross immorality, wickedness, deception & rebellion against the God of the Bible exist in the world at unrestrained levels & in all walks of life, greater than at any other time in human history. This is why she is also named the "Mother" of harlots in these End Times.
She "sits" on "7 mountains" (Rome)
John the Revelator saw the Great Harlot having her final position as "sitting upon" 7 mountains. He specifically clarifies that the 7 heads repre- sent "7 mountains on which the woman sits". This clearly pinpoints Rome since Rome has been known as the "city of 7 hills" for over 2000 years & to this day. The Apostle John himself & the 1st century church recognized the correlation of this symbolism with Rome.
"The 7 heads are 7 mountains on which the woman sits." [Rev.17:9] .
She "is" Rome....
Later, in a subsequent verse, Rome's End Time role is completely crystallized by John when he specifically states (Rev. 17:18) that the Harlot herself whom you saw "IS " the great city. Clearly, Revelation pinpoints Rome as the final End Time city of sin & headquarters of the Great Harlot. No other city qualifies. Just Rome.
"And the woman who you saw is the great city, which reigns over the kings of the earth."
In effect, John saw the woman-Harlot (Rome) sitting upon 7 hills (also Rome).
"The great city" [Rev.17:18]
Without question, the city of Rome (the Great Harlot) stands alone throughout world history as being "the great city". No other city in over 2000 years (from before the 1st century) even comes close to Rome in terms of duration & abominations & atrocities performed upon the human race. [ ie. crusades, Inquisitions ].
The Roman Empire (Rome) of 2000 years ago under Caesar Nero slaughtered up to 5 million persons including children, women, Christians & Jews, by most historic records. Then, Israel's last standing Temple in Jerusalem was also destroyed in 70 AD by the 1st century Roman Empire (Rome) with well over 1 million killed.
Today, 1700 years have passed from the rise of the Roman Papacy (313AD - today) proving Rome's horrific track record of the Inquisitions where tens of millions of persons were tortured & killed (by the Papacy of Rome) for non-sub- mission to Rome . [view Inquisitions below]
This is the exact meaning of what John saw in advance (in his 95AD vision) when he wrote:
"And I saw the woman (Rome) drunk with the blood of the saints, & with the blood of the witnesses of Jesus. And I wondered greatly." [Rev.17:6].
Prophetically today, Rome's religious tentacles have now gripped over 1 billion religious people worldwide in fulfillment of her role as the Great Harlot of the End Times. The rest of the unsus- pecting world naively looks at her with some degree of favor or even reverence as predicted.
Yet, even with unparalleled amounts of blood on her hands historically, the church of Rome still exalts herself while carrying out blasphem- ous & false traditions which oppose God's Word. At the same time, Rome adorns herself with a religious facade as being today's "Holy Roman Church". Again, John's foresight of this is recorded in the book of Revelation:
"And I saw a woman (Rome)...... full of blas- phemous names...." (Rev.17:3). "And the wo- man (Rome) was clothed in purple & scarlet & adorned with gold & precious stones & pearls, having in her hand a gold cup full of abom- nations & of the unclean things of her immor- ality......". [Rev.17:4].
"And I saw a woman sitting on a scarlet beast, full of blasphemous names, having 7 heads & 10 horns." [Rev.17:3] "And upon her forehead a name was written, a mystery, Babylon the Great, the Mother of Harlots & of the abominations of the earth." [Rev.17:5]
