From the Foundation of the World

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.” (Rev 17:7-8 KJV)

Golden Cup

“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:” (Rev 17:4 KJV)

The woman is arrayed as if she were royalty- from her clothes to the cup she holds. Even though she and the golden cup that she holds is beautiful to behold, the cup shows what is in her heart- abominable sin. This shows the spiritual condition of the world and the false religion that it follows.

Scarlet Coloured Beast

“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.” (Rev 17:3 KJV)

The best is the political system of Babylon. The world religious system is supported by the political system. The seven heads are the seven kings seen in verse 10. They represent seven kingdoms. The ten horns are seen in verse 12. They are the ten kings that do not as yet have a kingdom. They will rule with the best for a short while.

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.
