Revelation 17 (KJV)
17 And there came one of the seven angels which had the seven vials, and talked with me, saying unto me, Come hither; I will shew unto thee the judgment of the great whore that sitteth upon many waters:
2 With whom the kings of the earth have committed fornication, and the inhabitants of the earth have been made drunk with the wine of her fornication.
3 So he carried me away in the spirit into the wilderness: and I saw a woman sit upon a scarlet coloured beast, full of names of blasphemy, having seven heads and ten horns.
4 And the woman was arrayed in purple and scarlet colour, and decked with gold and precious stones and pearls, having a golden cup in her hand full of abominations and filthiness of her fornication:
5 And upon her forehead was a name written, Mystery, Babylon The Great, The Mother Of Harlots And Abominations Of The Earth.
(She is mother of the two whores Ezekiel 23….RP)
6 And I saw the woman drunken with the blood of the saints, and with the blood of the martyrs of Jesus: and when I saw her, I wondered with great admiration.
7 And the angel said unto me, Wherefore didst thou marvel? I will tell thee the mystery of the woman, and of the beast that carrieth her, which hath the seven heads and ten horns.
8 The beast that thou sawest was, and is not; and shall ascend out of the bottomless pit, and go into perdition: and they that dwell on the earth shall wonder, whose names were not written in the book of life from the foundation of the world, when they behold the beast that was, and is not, and yet is.
9 And here is the mind which hath wisdom. The seven heads are seven mountains, on which the woman sitteth.
(jerusalem, spirtual Sodom and Egypt…….RP)
10 And there are seven kings: five are fallen, and one is, and the other is not yet come; and when he cometh, he must continue a short space.
11 And the beast that was, and is not, even he is the eighth, and is of the seven, and goeth into perdition.
(Moshiach ben David, False Christ, Son of Perdition, Man of Sin….RP)
12 And the ten horns which thou sawest are ten kings, which have received no kingdom as yet; but receive power as kings one hour with the beast.
(Ten men of bed of Shlomo (Solomon the apostate)…RP)
13 These have one mind, and shall give their power and strength unto the beast.
14 These shall make war with the Lamb, and the Lamb shall overcome them: for he is Lord of lords, and King of kings: and they that are with him are called, and chosen, and faithful.
(Sealed at Calvary….RP)
15 And he saith unto me, The waters which thou sawest, where the whore sitteth, are peoples, and multitudes, and nations, and tongues.
16 And the ten horns which thou sawest upon the beast, these shall hate the whore, and shall make her desolate and naked, and shall eat her flesh, and burn her with fire.
(The Chabad Lubavitch, Sanhedrin hate the whore city Jerusalem…RP)
17 For God hath put in their hearts to fulfil his will, and to agree, and give their kingdom unto the beast, until the words of God shall be fulfilled.
18 And the woman which thou sawest is that great city, which reigneth over the kings of the earth.
18 And after these things I saw another angel come down from heaven, having great power; and the earth was lightened with his glory.
2 And he cried mightily with a strong voice, saying, Babylon the great is fallen, is fallen, and is become the habitation of devils, and the hold of every foul spirit, and a cage of every unclean and hateful bird.
3 For all nations have drunk of the wine of the wrath of her fornication, and the kings of the earth have committed fornication with her, and the merchants of the earth are waxed rich through the abundance of her delicacies.
4 And I heard another voice from heaven, saying, Come out of her, my people, that ye be not partakers of her sins, and that ye receive not of her plagues.
5 For her sins have reached unto heaven, and God hath remembered her iniquities.
6 Reward her even as she rewarded you, and double unto her double according to her works: in the cup which she hath filled fill to her double.
7 How much she hath glorified herself, and lived deliciously, so much torment and sorrow give her: for she saith in her heart, I sit a queen, and am no widow, and shall see no sorrow.
(For that Harlot City Has no King of KINGS and LORD of Lords….RP)
8 Therefore shall her plagues come in one day, death, and mourning, and famine; and she shall be utterly burned with fire: for strong is the Lord God who judgeth her.
9 And the kings of the earth, who have committed fornication and lived deliciously with her, shall bewail her, and lament for her, when they shall see the smoke of her burning,
10 Standing afar off for the fear of her torment, saying, Alas, alas that great city Babylon, that mighty city! for in one hour is thy judgment come.
11 And the merchants of the earth shall weep and mourn over her; for no man buyeth their merchandise any more:
12 The merchandise of gold, and silver, and precious stones, and of pearls, and fine linen, and purple, and silk, and scarlet, and all thyine wood, and all manner vessels of ivory, and all manner vessels of most precious wood, and of brass, and iron, and marble,
13 And cinnamon, and odours, and ointments, and frankincense, and wine, and oil, and fine flour, and wheat, and beasts, and sheep, and horses, and chariots, and slaves, and souls of men.
14 And the fruits that thy soul lusted after are departed from thee, and all things which were dainty and goodly are departed from thee, and thou shalt find them no more at all.
15 The merchants of these things, which were made rich by her, shall stand afar off for the fear of her torment, weeping and wailing,
16 And saying, Alas, alas that great city, that was clothed in fine linen, and purple, and scarlet, and decked with gold, and precious stones, and pearls!
17 For in one hour so great riches is come to nought. And every shipmaster, and all the company in ships, and sailors, and as many as trade by sea, stood afar off,
18 And cried when they saw the smoke of her burning, saying, What city is like unto this great city!
19 And they cast dust on their heads, and cried, weeping and wailing, saying, Alas, alas that great city, wherein were made rich all that had ships in the sea by reason of her costliness! for in one hour is she made desolate.
20 Rejoice over her, thou heaven, and ye holy apostles and prophets; for God hath avenged you on her.
21 And a mighty angel took up a stone like a great millstone, and cast it into the sea, saying, Thus with violence shall that great city Babylon be thrown down, and shall be found no more at all.
22 And the voice of harpers, and musicians, and of pipers, and trumpeters, shall be heard no more at all in thee; and no craftsman, of whatsoever craft he be, shall be found any more in thee; and the sound of a millstone shall be heard no more at all in thee;
23 And the light of a candle shall shine no more at all in thee; and the voice of the bridegroom and of the bride shall be heard no more at all in thee: for thy merchants were the great men of the earth; for by thy sorceries were all nations deceived.
24 And in her was found the blood of prophets, and of saints, and of all that were slain upon the earth.
Hotovely: Israel’s Trade Has Doubled in Last Seven Years; We Are Courted by World Leaders
“Our relationship with Britain is very good, [the UK is] an ally of Israel,” Hotoveli told the panel. “Cameron’s statement reflects his view regarding the settlements and the status of eastern Jerusalem is controversial. Israel’s elected government’s view is that we will remain in the eastern part of the city, and that a united Jerusalem is the only thing that protects Arabs and Jews alike.”
“As someone who truly believes that Jerusalem is our eternal capital [I say], we must understand one thing — when [Prime Minister Ehud Olmert in 2007] offered one tiny possibility of dividing the city, we got shooting at [the Jewish neighborhood of] Gilo in return, our citizens couldn’t live in peace. We cannot afford terrorist enclaves near the Western Wall.”
(So they jailed Olmert….RP)
While other panelists, such as former Israeli ambassador to the US, MK Michael Oren [Kulanu], MK Omer Bar-Lev (Zionist Camp), and leftwing journalist Gideon Levi pointed out that Israel is turning into an international pariah, being under attack in the West, and now in America as well, Hotoveli insisted things have never been better for Israel abroad.
“In the past seven years, what happened in terms of Israel’s status in the world is that more and more European leaders are acting against the boycotts,” Hotoveli said. Cameron has legislated against the BDS and Angela Merkel is saying this is not the right time for the two-state solution. There’s a European disillusionment. There’s no need to get excited over an ad that was put up in Britain for a minute and a half, and see it as representing the whole. We must view things in terms of economics, and in terms of bolstering our relations with Arab states who see Iran as the real threat.”
I’ve met with more than 40 leaders during my service at the foreign ministry,” Hotoveli, who became Deputy Minister this term, said. “They want to be close to Israel. Our foreign trade was doubled over the past seven years. Not only are we not isolated in the world, we’re being courted by many countries in the West, in East Asia, in Africa. The president of Kenya arrives to sign a regional pact. The CEO of Microsoft wants to build a development center here. There’s the problem of the Palestinian propaganda — they lost in the battlefield and in economic boycotts, so they’re going with propaganda.”
According to Hotoveli, peace with the Palestinians will look nothing like the Camp David agreement between Sadat and Begin. The only realistic path Israel must follow is “to act from below, through social infrastructures, against incitement and propaganda,” she said.
