Beast Rider – Part Two

The Beast that the woman rides is first mentioned in Revelation 11:7, but only briefly. The Beast is then discussed in detail in Chapter 13 – but, not the Beast Rider. It is only in Chapter 17 that we see the Great Whore, who sits on many waters.

As I asked yesterday, the question is about her identity.

Who IS the Beast Rider?

It is interesting to see that there are three different theories as to the identity of this woman:

  • The Roman Catholic Church
  • The United States of America
  • Mecca – in Saudi Arabia

That last one was as much a surprise to me as it probably is to you. But, for those who have come out of Islam and embraced Jesus Christ as their Lord and Savior, it makes some sense.

Beast Rider – Part Two

It is interesting that there is no mention of a Beast Rider until Chapter 17. But, when an angel speaks to John about her, he speaks in a way that indicates that John has already seen her – yet, WE haven’t been introduced to her.


Anyway, here’s the beginning of Revelation 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:Revelation 17:1

The part in bold is what I’m talking about. Of course, the angel may have just assumed that John already knew about the great whore.

Now, verse two adds:

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.Revelation 17:2

Later on in Revelation 17, we learn what the ‘many waters’ are:

And he saith unto me, The waters which thou sawest, where the whore sitteth, are peoples, and multitudes, and nations, and tongues.Revelation 17:15

So, the ‘many waters’ are peoples, crowds of people, national groups and languages.

It’s interesting to see that subdivision. Notice that there’s no mention of kings and kingdoms as a part of these ‘many waters’. Also, the word for nations is ethne – or, ethnics and not political boundaries.

Why Is The Beast Rider A Whore?

Now, why does God describe this woman as The Great Whore?

That name provides us with quite a bit of information. It indicates her gender. It tells us what she does, and why. And, it gives us something of a clue as to her origins.

Remember that God could have chosen a different symbol for John. But, He didn’t. He chose a woman.

A woman is NOT a symbol of physical power – otherwise, God would have chosen a man to represent the Beast Rider. Notice also what she is NOT doing.

Do you see any reins in the hands of this woman to exert direct control of The Beast?

No. You do not.

So, this woman has a passive role as the Beast Rider. Basically, The Beast can toss her off at any moment, and there is nothing that she can do about it. Nor can she make the Beast change direction or stop by tugging on any reins.

This means that the Beast Rider is in a precarious position and must cooperate with The Beast, or get thrown off and eaten.

The other part that I want us to take away is her identity as a whore, a prostitute. When you see that symbolism in the Bible, it is always in context with an origin. A whore never starts out as a prostitute. She always begins life in purity, before defiling herself.

By way of example, Israel started out in purity, before she prostituted herself and caused God to cast her out. Although, in Ezekiel 36 and Ezekiel 37, we see God forgiving her and bringing her back.

So, I believe that we can say that the Great Whore had pure beginnings. There is a strong element of betrayal in her – a betrayal of God, as well as a betrayal of her responsibilities. She is doing something OTHER than what she was made for.

The Beast, on the other hand, is doing EXACTLY what was intended for it. It came out of the Bottomless Pit and is behaving as designed. But,…

…the Beast Rider doesn’t come out of the Bottomless Pit.

She had holy beginnings – otherwise, God would not have called her a whore.

And, I find that thought to be interesting.

Lord willing, we’ll do Part Three, tomorrow.

I truly hope that you’ll be ready for this

  1. The entire world system that is headed by satan is Babylon. The US is probably the most advanced embodiment of this whore. satan has used this Jezebel type entity because of the seductive powers that she has. As a matter of fact what was revealed to John at Patmos in this regard to Christ message to the seven churches specifically Thyatira.
    Revelation 2:18 And unto the angel of the church in Thyatira write; These things saith the Son of God, who hath his eyes like unto a flame of fire, and his feet are like fine brass;

    19 I know thy works, and charity, and service, and faith, and thy patience, and thy works; and the last to be more than the first.

    20 Notwithstanding I have a few things against thee, because thou sufferest that woman Jezebel, which calleth herself a prophetess, to teach and to seduce my servants to commit fornication, and to eat things sacrificed unto idols.

    The Jezebel/Astoreth/Asherah type has been around working in the midst of the Mystery Babylon religions since world rulers began making themselevs out to be gods.

    I believe the call, (coming out of Babylon) goes out to any who belong to Christ to come out of any system or organization that blends itself with these religions or the worlds systems. It may mean that he will bring some out of a particular geographic location but, where on the earth can you go that a satanic system does not exist?

    • Hi Jeff,

      Good question.

      Where can you go?

      Where the Lord leads you, but the first step might be to get out of harm’s way. You will find many good brothers and sisters in Christ in Costa Rica and here in East Asia.

      Thank you, Jeff. Good comment.

      Yours in Christ,

  2. Not sure I really understand the reason for leaving America. If its going to get bad and the end times kingdom of the beast develops it really will not matter where you are. Tribulation will come to you. You will not be able to escape it. Why not stay where you are and be a light on the lamp stand for all to see. What better place to be than in a place where the people are turning away from God. You can be useful to God if he desires. If you are not there then nothing will happen. Remember Niniva.

    I almost feel its counterproductive to tell people to flee. There is no fleeing from God. If he deems it will happen then it will. Better to be in his will where you are. If God wants you to leave you will know. Do not fear him who can destroy the body but him who can destroy both the body and soul.

    • Hi Russ,

      Having lived abroad for 19 years, I can tell you that the rest of the world is better able to weather the coming storm better than the United States. The US is completely unprepared.

      But, if you believe that God wants you where you are, well that’s where you should be. Just make sure that you really are making that decision out of a true love for God, and not materialism and apathy. Too many Christians are like that.

      Thank you, Russ.

      Yours in Christ,

      John Little

    • GOD SAY’S:

      Jer 50:8-10

      “Flee out of Babylon;
          leave the land of the Babylonians,
          and be like the goats that lead the flock.
      9 For I will stir up and bring against Babylon
          an alliance of great nations from the land of the north.
      They will take up their positions against her,
          and from the north she will be captured.
      Their arrows will be like skilled warriors
          who do not return empty-handed.
      10 So Babylonia will be plundered;
          all who plunder her will have their fill,”
      declares the Lord.”

      You Say:

      “I almost feel its counterproductive to tell people to flee.”

      See where I’m going with this?!

      The scriptures are clear to those that seek G-ds Opinion (Above)!!!

      FLEE OR BURN!!!
      But that choice is yours!!

      • P.S.

        Zedikiah didn’t listen to G-ds Word through Jeremiah either – so in the end – he was taken before Nebuchadnezzar — his family was SLAUGHTERED before him and then his eye’s gouged out so that the DESTRUCTION of his family would be the LAST THING HE EVER SAW!!!! (Jer 37, 38 and 39).

        All because he defied G-ds WORD!!!
        If G-D has shown you that America is BABYLON!!! There was only one order/choice given —- “FLEE!!!!”


  3. As to the introduction of the rider: Hi there, dear brother! Yes, but John has been introduced, and possibly the best way to see this, is through your illumination on the words “many waters.” IF you go back to Revelation 13, you will find these words introducing that Chapter:

    “And I stood upon the SAND OF THE SEA, and saw a beast RISE UP OUT OF THE SEA, having seven heads and ten horns, and upon his horns ten crowns, and upon his heads the name of blasphemy” (Revelation 13: 1, KJV, emphasis mine). Ahh, here is your introduction to the Rider of the MAIN Beast, who I believe you will find as you continue, to be none other than Satan himself.

    Studying the words of Revelation 13, you will find, the “sea Beast,” as you have noted in #1/ in your top 3 IDs of the Woman/Church (2Corinthians 11: 2) as the ID of such, is indeed Papal Rome, as Revelation 13 will clear up for you; that OTHER Beast of verse 11, is the United Sates, as this beast comes not of the sea (heavily populated areas), but, this beast comes up out of the Earth, the diametric opposite of Sea, and verse 10 is the lead in, to this Earth Beast, because it gives us clarification on the date of its appearance. The deadly wound of the Sea Beast, occurred in 1798, when Napoleon Bonaparte’s General, BERTHIER, took Pope Pius VI Captive from Rome, and he died in Valence, France in 1799 – again, the deadly wound was healed, and all the world wondered after the Papal (Sea) Beast, in verse 3. And so the introduction (verse 10), brings us to 1798, ONLY a few decades later than 1776, and the beginnings of the United States coming forth from the Earth (sparsely populated land). Thus in the end of our world, the U S rides atop Papal Rome, but as in Revelation 17, Papal Rome rides atop Satan himself, the chief Beast of the whole Earth; the reason for our general afflictions.

  4. A fourth possibility is the global banking cabal. I believe they meet the full description of the whore, as well as have the power to grant or remove the power to buy or sell outside of their global system when it is fully established.

  5. Beast out of the land and Beast out of the see/ 1st Beast represents the persecuting power of Satan in and through the nations of the world and their governments . The 2nd Beast of the land symbolizes false religions and philosophies of the world. Babylon is worldly e-moral seduction.

  6. Good Primer John. And given your closing remarks describing this harlot I would like to propose a 4th possibility. Jerusalem.
    Revelation also says the two witnesses are killed in ‘the great city spritually called Sodom and Egypt’. Babylon is split into 3 parts. Zechariah refers to the Mount of Olives splitting in two parts. Jerusalem represents a woman who was unfaithful to her marriage, becoming a harlot. I could go on. Jerusalem would become a cup of trembling to all nations.
    I look forward to your own conclusion.

  7. I believe that the woman riding the best is ISLAM.Since they believe Christ was a prophet and not the son of god then it would tie in when the devil reveals himself to the world and performs miracles as in the bible.

  8. She is false Christianity – Organised christian religion – she is not of “the new & living way” but rather she is likened to the Pharisee who shuts up heaven to the true seeker whilst she maintains the gates of hell assuming she stands at the entrance to heaven, getting rich & fat off the blood of the lost sheep. She is Catholic & Protestant & every branch thereof. The 7 churches of revelation reveal her beginning…,.” I will remove your lamp stand from its place” & her end..,…” Behold I stand at the door & knock”. Many are the faithful who have & will defy her rhetoric & “follow the Lamb wherever He goes” but much much more have swallowed her lies & will have her same reward ….destruction.

  9. Message from God to all alternative media : You’ve been wrongly naming the MSM. 99.99 % of illuminati that “control,” Fox, CNN, MSNBC, etc., etc., are BANKERS OR INDIRECTLY RELATED TO BANKERS!!!! So … it’s BANKER MEDIA. “YOU,” are INDEPENDENT MEDIA.


    Now notice the initials :))))
    Does God have a sense of humor or what ????!!!!

  10. Hey John, I believe the whore represents the strong delusion sent by God. Money/fiat, modern medicine/chemicals, brainwashed education, lgbt gayness freedom, bs churches full of devil worship/demonic symbols, poison processed food, gov worship etc..where natural is bad, and synthetic is good.

    You’re about to say it, aren’t you?!
    But that’s not the “UNBELIEVABLE” part!!!
    The “UNBELIEVABLE” part is that I habitually visit your site on occasion – not daily, but every week or two to get caught up OR sometimes – I read something that makes me think about you (Like just now) and drop over to post a link!!!

    Reading this article!!! Wow!!! Now it scare’s me to post the link!!!
    I’m confident you’ll know why – after just reading the intro. at the link!!!

    Bare in mind, you said:
    1. – A whore never starts out as a prostitute. She always begins life in purity, before defiling herself.

    2. – So, I believe that we can say that the Great Whore had pure beginnings.


    3. She had holy beginnings – otherwise, God would not have called her a whore.

    Here’s the link!!! Read and weep!!!

    Welcome to Babylon! G-d help us all!!!

  12. And here’s the P.S.!!!

    Ez 23 (Along with the words in the Chapters on Franklin and Washington in the previous link) sould shed more light on the “Wh-ore”!

    Oh, yea?!
    And this link (Following) was posted by Steve Quayle! Note the date, 15th! Curious you’de be searching for the “Wh-ore” this week?!
    A Woman (Country) whom like Israel was founded on G-dly principles but then Sacrificied it’s own Children!


  13. I’m going with
    Whore: The United Nations (initially set up to promote peace but now, infiltrated by communists it seeks to aggregate power from the nation states, all of whom cannot criticise it because of its ostensible, original purpose)
    Satan: the banking system, headed by the Rothschilds, who are systematically stripping nations (actually their people) of their wealth, impoverishing them through national debt.

  14. I may be wrong, but I worked this out some years back. In Revelation 18 God asks ‘his people’, to get out of Babylon the Great. The Jehovah’s Witnesses of course say that God is asking you to get out of all religion and join them! But I have a different thought nowadays.

    I asked them: ‘well if that was the case, you can’t become a JW until you’ve studied for years, then become baptised. Yet Rev 18 suggests that the people referred to are ALREADY God’s people when they’re told ‘get out of her’.

    I cross ref with 2nd Thessalonians CH 1 & 2. The apostle Paul indicates that an apostasy was CURRENTLY at work back then, limited to a certain extent by the holy spirit, which would leave the earth. After that, the apostasy, Satanic influence, would be fully active.

    We can see this quite clearly since not a few hundred years after the apostles died out, Constantine made Christianity the state religion. To ‘encourage’ people into this religion pagan ceremonies were incorporated. Later, when catholic missionaries began converting other nationalities, in every country they incorporated the native pagan festivals into worship. Obviously then, this cannot possibly be condoned by God, yet there are of course many many people in all sorts of religions who are good.

    If apostasy was active back at the beginning , it means by now that ALL religion is corrupted. Therefore what God is saying in Rev 18 is if you are one of the good hearted people, you need to separate yourself from ALL religion. Your mediator is NOT religion, it is Jesus Christ. Our personal relationship with Him and the Father should mean more to us than any religion.

    May the Spirit bless you.

    • Hi Sasson Hann,

      All religion?

      The dictionary defines religion as:

      the belief in a god or in a group of gods

      Therefore, what you are asking us to do is follow Satan. Satan WANTS us to cast aside ‘religion’ and follow our own way.

      Your statement worries me, because it leads me to believe that you are not a true follower of Christ – that this Spirit that you invoke is Lucifer.

      Sasson, you MUST repent and turn from your sins. You MUST accept Jesus Christ as your ONLY Lord and Savior – and, as God. You MUST then follow the Bible as the only true source of knowledge and inspiration.

      Otherwise, you face an eternity of suffering.

      Yours in Christ,

      John Little
