The Wine of Her Fornication

“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.” (Rev 17:2 KJV)

To be drunk with the wine of her fornication is to be partaker’s of her political and religious system. The kings of the earth will enter into a partnership with the political, social, and economic system of Babylon that the antichrist will control. This gives the antichrist control over the world leaders.

As a Thief

“Behold, I come as a thief. Blessed is he that watcheth, and keepeth his garments, lest he walk naked, and they see his shame.” (Rev 16:15 KJV)

This is the third blessing statement of the apocalypse. Jesus gives us one more warning that He is coming quickly and we do not know the time. To watch is to be ready spiritually. To keep garments, also ‘keep your robes white’, is metaphoric of living in holiness. Jesus is coming back for those that are watching for His coming and have kept their robes white. This echoes Jesus’ statement in Matthew.

(Rev 16:13-14 KJV)
