Today, we bring this discussion to a close. Hopefully, I will have laid out the pieces of the puzzle in such a way that you can decide for yourself who the Beast Rider is – and, by process of elimination, who The Beast is.
Yesterday, we talked about her relationship with The Beast and the richness of her apparel, and the fact that she holds in her hand a golden cup, full of abomination.
Today, we talk about the names on her forehead, the fact that she is a city, and that all who are a part of her are commanded by God to leave her.

Beast Rider – Part Five
We are trying to figure out which of the three main theories fit this Great Whore that rides The Beast:
- The Roman Catholic Church
- The United States of America
- Mecca – in Saudi Arabia
The Meccan theory isn’t looking good at this point. Yesterday, the Roman Catholic Church pulled ahead of the US, so we’ll see who passes the finish line as winner of the dubious prize of Great Whore.
Of course, those that are not a part of the Great Whore are obviously a part of The Beast – which would actually be worse.
Here are the final scriptures that deal with the Great Whore:
And upon her forehead was a name written, Mystery, Babylon The Great, The Mother Of Harlots And Abominations Of The Earth. 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. – Revelation 17:5-6
And here is the mind which hath wisdom. The seven heads are seven mountains, on which the woman sitteth. – Revelation 17:9
And he saith unto me, The waters which thou sawest, where the whore sitteth, are peoples, and multitudes, and nations, and tongues. 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. – Revelation 17:15-16
And the woman which thou sawest is that great city, which reigneth over the kings of the earth. – Revelation 17:18
Chapter 18 deals specifically with the Great Whore. But, I won’t include all of that here. All of it is important to read, but here are the most important verses:
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. – Revelation 18:4
And the merchants of the earth shall weep and mourn over her; for no man buyeth their merchandise any more: – Revelation 18:11
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! 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, And cried when they saw the smoke of her burning, saying, What city is like unto this great city! – Revelation 18: 16-18
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. – Revelation 18:21
And in her was found the blood of prophets, and of saints, and of all that were slain upon the earth. – Revelation 18:24
Then there is this verse in Chapter 19:
For true and righteous are his judgments: for he hath judged the great whore, which did corrupt the earth with her fornication, and hath avenged the blood of his servants at her hand. – Revelation 19:2
There is a fantastic celebration over the destruction of this city in Chapter 19.
So the question is this:
Which of the three theories fits best with what we see here?
Here are the attributes:
- Mystery and Babylon the Great
- Mother of Harlots
- She sits on peoples, multitudes, nations and tongues
- The Ten Horns hate her
- She is a Great City
- She reigns over the kings of the Earth
- God’s people are in her
- The merchants of the Earth mourn over her destruction
- She has murdered God’s people, and she is drunk with their blood
- Her death is so wonderful, that heaven rejoices at it.
Okay, so let’s try to put all this together.
Like the previous days, we’ll start with the traditional nominee, the Roman Catholic Church.
The Roman Catholic Church
The Roman Catholic Church fits all of these attributes, and she fits them extremely well. She embodies the mysteries of the Babylonian occult and has incorporated them into her ceremonies. She has also preserved them in her archives and used them to their fullest extent.
She has harlot daughters. Take a good, hard look at the Protestant churches, and you’ll find that they are very much like their mother. And, we see the Harlot Daughters being drawn back to their mother church.
By the way, Baptists are NOT Protestants!
She is hated by the Kings of the Earth, even though they deal with her.
She is also a Great City. This city has been around for a very, VERY long time. And, there are few cities that are more impressive than Rome.
And, when God calls His people out of her, I don’t believe that this is command to leave a geographical location, although I admit that this COULD be what God is doing.
The merchants of the Earth certainly would mourn over her destruction.
And, if there is one thing that you can say about the Roman Catholic Church is that she has murdered God’s people. No one – and I mean NO ONE – has murdered more of God’s people than the Roman Catholic Church. The Roman Catholic Church is the greatest murderer of God’s people that the world has EVER known.
Furthermore, she is also one of the great corrupters of God’s church, sending her secret emissaries in to change seminaries and destroy pastors and churches. Her Jesuits have crept into many, many places and defiled many teachings.
My own studies in this area have uncovered a mountain of crime and villainy that is breathtaking. As I have said before, and will continue to say, the Roman Catholic Church is the most vile organization on Earth. It is hard to think of anything more hypocritical and more evil than she is.
So, the question that you need to ask yourself:
Is she the Great Whore? Or, is she The Beast?
But, let’s move on to our next contestant.
The United States of America
Most of you don’t realize that Babylonian Mysticism is woven throughout America’s beginnings. It’s on the Great Seal of the United States. It’s in the layout of Washington D.C., and her founders were all acolytes of the deepest mysteries of Babylonianism.
Steve Quayle has even brought out the origins of the name America as mystical and of an occult nature.
But, can we say that she is the Mother of Harlots?
That is one of many attributes to the Great Whore that trouble me, when I try to apply this to the US of A.
I can understand how her culture has gained power with the people of the world, and that she sits astride Seven Mountains – i.e., seven continents.
I can see how she reigns over the kings of the Earth. In fact, for a world system to be created, everyone has acknowledged that America must be destroyed. America CANNOT exist as a great power, if a world system is to rise to take over the world.
I can also see that God’s people are in America and that no one has corrupted the world more than America has.
I can see how the merchants of the world would mourn at her destruction.
But… and I’m having trouble here …how has she murdered the people of God?
Yes, I’m sure that a close look at America will reveal the unjustified killing of many of God’s people, but when you compare the US to the Vatican… well …there’s no comparison.
Add to this the question of who the Harlot daughters of America are… and, well …you have something of a conundrum.
Also, we have something of a problem with the idea of America being a city. Of course, we could claim this to be New York City. And, much blame could be laid at the feet of New York City. But, if you focus everything on New York City, it reduces even further the blame that you can attribute to her.
For instance, it is Los Angeles that is the center of the World’s pornography and movie business.
And, let me add that America and New York are very, VERY young. And, their power and corruption are younger still.
With such a short time period to corrupt the world, would heaven be involved in such rejoicing as is described in chapter 19?
I mean, the Great Whore is singled out for special attention.
The world power of the United States dates back maybe a hundred years – if that. And, throughout all this time, America has been involved in spreading the Gospel.
Is America corrupting the Gospel as well?
Yes. But, not like the Roman Catholic Church.
To my own mind, I would have to consider America to be in second place, behind the Roman Catholic Church, to be The Great Whore.
But, there is one way that America could be The Great Whore:
If the Roman Catholic Church was a part of The Beast.
THAT would certainly be how America could be the Great Whore.
Mecca – in Saudi Arabia
Now, Mecca does shine a bit in the area of murdering God’s people. They have certainly done a lot of it over the past one thousand, four hundred years. But, the Muslims haven’t murdered as many Christians as the Catholics have.
Furthermore, I’m not sure that we can call her the Mother of Harlots or that the merchants of the world would mourn so much over her destruction.
Yes, I understand how some would see how she fits with these descriptions. But, in my spirit, I just cannot see how they fit that well.
To make Mecca and Islam fit in with the Great Whore, you would need to get out your hammer and bang on the pieces – to wedge them in.
Although, I will say that Mecca and Islam have been around for far longer than America, and one could claim that they have a far greater claim to being the Great Whore.
But, I still see Mecca as being in third place. Things will need to change drastically for her to reach a place where I would change my opinion about this.
Of course, drastic change IS coming, so anything is possible.
In my opinion… and yes, it is only my opinion …The Roman Catholic Church still holds the pride of place in this race. She still seems to fit the role of Great Whore better than any other.
But, there is one caveat, here:
She is the Great Whore, only if she is not the Beast – or a part of the Beast.
Our ancient brethren, for more than a thousand years, have called her The Beast, and I value THEIR opinion greatly.
So, if you claim that the Roman Catholic Church is a part of The Beast… then:
America is The Great Whore.
That’s an interesting thought, but… I’m not sure that this works. But, if you accept this as true… then, well …you have a problem.
Because God has COMMANDED His people to leave Her. It is NOT a suggestion. So, you had better get out.
And, for Mecca and Islam, I can only say that those voting for them to be The Great Whore… well …nice try. But, it just doesn’t work. Mecca and Islam do not have holy beginnings, and are just like the many religious cults that were successful.
I hope that this was helpful to you. I pray that the Holy Spirit directs your thoughts on this. This issue is one of the more difficult to address.
However, I believe that the coming days, weeks, months and years will make it clear to us who the Great Whore is, and who is The Beast.
I truly hope that you’ll be ready for this
