BABYLON THE GREAT, MOTHER OF PROSTITUTES
was Apostate 1st Century Israel who was divorced from God & executed in 70A.D.
By Tuese Ahkiong
Unbelieving Israel in the 1st century, the generation to whom Jesus and the Apostles spoke was THE MOTHER OF HARLOTS, A PROSTITUTE, and AN ADULTEROUS GENERATION that was judged in 70 A.D. The Olivet Discourse in the synoptic gospels (Matt, Mark, Luke) all point to the judgment that would fall on Jerusalem in that generation. The book of Revelation is John's Olivet Discourse which speaks of God's Divorce of Israel, Judgment on Israel and marriage to The Church which is made up of both Jew and Gentile, The Israel of God/New Jerusalem.
That adulterous generation asked for a criminal, Barrabas, instead of Jesus; they several times tried to kill Jesus; they called Jesus a bastard; they said Jesus was a devil and had demons; they screamed crucify Jesus; they said they had no King but Ceasar; they murdered Jesus; they asked for a generational curse to be upon them by saying His blood be upon them and their children (God said Amen and they ate their kids in the siege upon Jerusalem by the Romans just like Deut 28 said they would for breaking the covenant).
No longer be DUPED by Dispensationalists and Zionists who are trying to convince you that Israel Today is God's Chosen people. If you are a Christian then YOU are God's Chosen ;-) IT IS BECAUSE OF IGNORANCE OF GOD'S HOLY WORD THAT CHRISTIANS ARE SENDING THEIR HARD EARNED MONEY TO PAGAN ISRAEL.
"What evil thing can man do in the future that can compare to MURDERING JESUS that can bring about a Great Tribulation?????" This is why THE GREAT TRIBULATION fell upon that generation. No other generation had the King of Glory in their presence and then murdered Him. Within context, the Jews were the only people in covenant relations with God. By their ultimate breaking of covenant by murdering Jesus, this demanded divorce, execution of adulterer by stoning and burning. This is precisely what took place in 70AD.
JESUS SAYS HIS GENERATION WAS AN ADULTEROUS GENERATION
1) Mark 8:38 For whoever is ashamed of me and of my words in this ADULTEROUS and sinful generation, of him will the Son of Man also be ashamed when he comes in the glory of his Father with the holy angels.”
2) Matthew 12:39 But he answered them, “An evil and ADULTEROUS generation seeks for a sign, but no sign will be given to it except the sign of the prophet Jonah.
3) Matthew 16:4 An evil and ADULTEROUS generation seeks for a sign, but no sign will be given to it except the sign of Jonah.” So he left them and departed.
