We spend a lot of time trying to figure out who and what The Beast is, but seemingly very little time looking for the woman who rides The Beast. And, there are some interesting challenges that we have in trying to figure out the identity of The Great Whore.

The Book of Revelation gives us clues to the identity of The Great Whore. But, even though those clues are definitive, they still leave us with more questions than answers. I have tried to answer as many of those questions as possible, this week. And, the reason why I have tried to do that is wrapped up in a command by God found in Revelation 18.

That command is here:

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

God wasn’t making a suggestion. It’s a command, and refusing to follow a command like that would be a sin. And, I do not think that any of us want to disobey God.

The problem is that we aren’t completely sure WHO or WHAT the Great Whore is.

I’ve chosen what I believe to be the three possibilities that I’ve heard talked about the most and tried to see how they fit, according to the clues that God has left us in Revelation.

It is now left to you to decide whether you live in – or too close to – the Mother of Harlots. If the answer is ‘yes’, you know what to do.



So, what did we talk about this week?

We introduced the subject and the book by John PriceThe End of America. We identified the three main theories about the Great Whore and looked at the first verse in Revelation 17. We showed how the Beast Rider committed fornication with the kings of the Earth and made the people drink of that fornication. We looked at her beauty and the luxury of her apparel. And, we described the remaining clues and tried to reach a conclusion.

So, let’s talk about that.

The Articles That You Will Find in This WEEKEND SHOCKCAST

MONDAY – The Beast Rider – Part One

The Beast Rider – Part One

As we move ever deeper into the Last Days, the identity of the major players mentioned in the prophecies of these Last Days become ever more important. The world is going to suffer at the hands of those players, and we want to be ready when they come on the scene.

Our natural focus is The Beast and the Antichrist. And, I’ve talked about who and what they are. But, there is one entity that I haven’t given that much attention to:

The Beast Rider

This is the Great Whore that rides the Beast. And, we aren’t really sure who she is.

(Read the rest of the article, here)


TUESDAY – Beast Rider – Part Two

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.

WEDNESDAY – Beast Rider – Part Three

Beast Rider – Part Three

We can now start identifying how each of the three main theories about the Beast Rider fit within prophecy. And, if anything does NOT fit, well… that theory has been proven wrong.

This Beast Rider has a certain relationship with the world that identifies her. She commits fornication with the kings of the Earth. The people of the Earth drink the wine of her fornication. She sits on the Beast which is full of the names of blasphemy. She is beautiful and wears luxurious clothing and jewelry. And, she carries a golden cup that is full of abominations and filthiness.

So, let’s look at that.

(Read the rest of the article, here)


THURSDAY – Beast Rider – Part Four

Beast Rider – Part Four

We continue to make our way slowly through Revelation 17, comparing the Beast Rider to what we see in the world today.

Yesterday we saw her relationship with the kings of this world, as well as her direct relationship with the inhabitants of the Earth. Today we will talk about her relationship with The Beast and her appearance.

By the way, of the three theories that we are examining, remember that what is not a part of the Great Whore, is actually a part of The Beast.

What is not the Rider… is the Beast.

(Read the rest of the article, here)


FRIDAY – Beast Rider – Part Five

Beast Rider – Part Five

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.

20 thoughts on “WEEKEND SHOCKCAST: Beast Rider”

  1. A puzzlement: why would someone as fiercely Christian and intelligent and well-read as Ann Barnhardt be so adamantly Catholic? She is totally aware of the vileness of the Jesuits and many other things, but she makes the huge distinction that she is worshiping God, not the reprobates who falsely proclaim they represent Him. Many on the protestant side (and I thought protestant meant anything outside of Catholic, until I read your comment about Baptists) would do well to remember that God cannot be judged and rejected based on the behavior of flawed human beings.

    She has elaborate explanations for the areas where Catholic doctrine would seem, at first reading, to contradict the Bible. The explanations are so elaborate that I find them difficult to accept. There is a certain logic to them, but …… it is quite a stretch to make some of the connections. Yet she, with her brilliant mind and voracious reading, is 150% convinced of it.

    She is convinced that no one except the most traditional and faithful of Catholics will make it to heaven. You have written that being a part of Catholicism will send you to hell, if I interpret correctly. Even Ann? Whose commitment to Christ and willingness to die for Him is one in ten million? Whose integrity and courage to do right is like nothing else I’ve ever seen? Yet I am well aware of Catholic atrocities, like fighting tooth and nail the printing of Bibles in common language, so people could see for themselves what it said – and realize where the Catholic Church was snowing them. Ann rightly says this type of thing is the fault of men, not God. But when that type of thing becomes institutionalized …….. and worse …….. I look at all this and just can’t understand why someone as bright as Ann would still be so sold on the CC. It makes me wonder what part of the picture I am missing, and if perhaps my view is too simplistic.

    I am also baffled as to why God would permit such an institution to wreak havoc for almost 2,000 years. Why He would allow centuries to go by where no one except the Catholic priests schooled in Latin, Greek and Hebrew knew what the Bible really said but were contrained to preach CC doctrine, and simple people who knew nothing else were made to fear that anything they did to displease the CC would land them in hell. What kind of image of God could they form under those circumstances? I read an account of a native Caribbean indian chief, having been tortured to the point of death by Spanish sailors, being ministered to by a priest. He asked the priest, “if I accept your God, and go to heaven, will these people (the sailors) be there?” the priest said yes. So the chief said, then I do not want this God. There must have been tens of millions of medieval peasants who felt the same way. How could this be allowed to continue so long???

    Not that I expect any magic answers. It just baffles me.

    • Hi DRG,

      Excellent points.

      I have a lot of respect for Ann, and I like the kind of person that she is.

      My hope is that she IS saved. In fact, there is a tacit admission that there are Catholics who are true followers of Christ within the Catholic Church. That admission comes in chapter 18, where God calls His people out of her.

      By the way, popular history likes to claim that there were no Christians that were external to the Catholic Church, or the Greek Orthodox Church. But, this is completely untrue. History records that there were many, many Christians who followed Christ faithfully and were persecuted by Rome.

      This is why I said that Baptists were not Protestants. Their historical origins are from those Christians persecuted by Rome for more than a thousand years.

      Oh, and why Ann might tenaciously cling to Catholicism… well, I’ve found that extremely intelligent people are very good at rationalizing. In fact, it takes a very intelligent person to develop arguments in support of the unsupportable. That’s how Atheism, Communism, Socialism and a lot of other ‘-isms’ have come into being.

      As to why God allows all this… well …God has good reasons. And, He will tell us when we see Him.

      Thank you, DRG. Good thoughts.

      Yours in Christ,

      John Little

    • John 1:1 clearly states that Christ is as much the Word as He is God.
      If a person denies a portion of the Word he/she denies Christ. I am not even close to being able to judge anything but what is said.
      If a catholic ends up in heaven, it will not be because he/she was.
      Secondly, God has allowed it because men have.
      Matthew 16:15 He saith unto them, But whom say ye that I am?

      16 And Simon Peter answered and said, Thou art the Christ, the Son of the living God.

      17 And Jesus answered and said unto him, Blessed art thou, Simon Barjona: for flesh and blood hath not revealed it unto thee, but my Father which is in heaven.

      18 And I say also unto thee, That thou art Peter, and upon this rock I will build my church; and the gates of hell shall not prevail against it.

      19 And I will give unto thee the keys of the kingdom of heaven: and whatsoever thou shalt bind on earth shall be bound in heaven: and whatsoever thou shalt loose on earth shall be loosed in heaven.

      Those who are in Christ have the authority to use the truth and the Spirit of the Living God to blow the “fog” out to sea DRG.

      • Hi Jeff,

        Interesting points, Jeff.

        If I understand you correctly, I would be a little careful about labeling those who deny a part of the Bible as denying Christ. We are all in denial of something in the Bible, in one form or another. And, we cannot see that ‘denial’ until God opens our eyes to it.

        I’ve had some rude awakenings in the past, so I must assume that I will have some in the future.

        But, my mistaken view of the Bible did not mean that I had denied Christ.

        Having said that, I view your passion for the words of God as a wonderful thing. I wish that more Christians had that attitude.

        Thank you, Jeff.

        Yours in Christ,

        John Little




      • Hi AoL,

        I have grave reservations about allowing a link to your website to appear here. You have some good material your website, but you also have what appears to be heresy.

        There really is a Father, a Son, and a Holy Ghost. There really ARE three persons. Deny one, and you deny them all.

        God does NOT command us to observe the Sabbath as Christians.

        And, there may be other material that I missed when perusing your website.

        I caution everyone to be very careful when reading the material on http://www.avenueoflight.com. In fact, I may be in great error by allowing your link to appear here.

        Yours in Christ,

        John Little

  2. Hello, John. I have followed you for sometime, looking for the latest, early each morning. (I’m in Idaho) A question, does “leaving” mean physically, or spiritually/consciously separating one’s self from what we see coming? Your work at connecting the dots scripturally, is much appreciated ! Darren

    • Hi Darren Bolshaw,

      I believe that the call is physical, not just spiritual. But, I also understand that there could be something of a ‘gray area’ if you interpret the US as Babylon.

      To echo what Steve Quayle says so often… You should take all this to the Lord. He WILL direct you.

      Thank you, Darren, for your readership. I appreciate it.

      Yours in Christ,

      John Little

  3. John,

    I have been juggling this mystery around in my mind for about 2 years now. In addition to the 3 prospects above, there is another possibility that has appeared in my thoughts recently. Could it be that the US IS the beast and the whore that truly controls it is the Illuminati? Despite the absence of reins, she could be steering the beast secretly and this entity has fornicated with many global bed fellows through the FED, IMF, WORLD BANK, UN, etc. Clearly, she is responsible for the economic chaos in various nations in addition to the revolutions that are occurring with predictable frequency. There is none like this beast, which is being used to carry out this satanic agenda world wide, while killing it at the same time. This whore/beast entity is mostly viewed as one entity by the world, and as countries begin to suffer as a result of their fornication with her, they will hate her and give power to have her destroyed, and the US with her.

    Your thoughts.


  4. Hello John,

    There is plenty information given in Revelation 13 as to who the rider the woman is riding. Understanding who that woman sitting on our Capitol dome is and who is in that casket Chloe is placing a flower on in the ‘Agricultural’ mural on the forehead inside our Capitol dome and who is standing at the end of the rainbow with the Phrygian cap makes these prophecies come alive!

    The Beast that the woman rides is first mentioned albeit briefly in Revelation 11:7, and he is the beast that will ascend out of the bottomless pit. The country of the Beast is mentioned in Revelation 13:1.

    There is plenty of detail given to the Beast’s rider in Chapter 13 –particularly in Revelation 13:3-8 that parallels the “little horn” texts of Daniel 7:8 and 11, Daniel 7:20-21 and Daniel 7:24-25.

    Revelation 13:2 tells us that the “four beasts” of Daniel 7:3-6 and 8 parallel the riders of Revelation 6:2-9 and in particular the ‘rider on the pale horse’ of 6:8! The “country” of the Beast parallels Daniel 7:7.

    Our “Beast rider” is also the “little horn” of Daniel 8:8-12 and Daniel 8:23-25, with the “country” of the Beast being the “he goat” of Daniel 8-5, 8-8. Called Greece because Athena sits on our Capitol dome.

    We read of our rider called a “vile person” in Daniel 11:21-45 and again our ‘rider” is revealed in 2 Thessalonians 2:6-9.

    On the “day of the LORD” the man of lawlessness riding the ‘pale horse’ will be revealed, it is the LORD who has been restraining him until the rider on the ‘black horse’ is taken out of the way, read Daniel 11:20. His coming is by the activity of Satan with all power and false signs and wonders who the LORD will kill with the breath of his mouth and bring to nothing by the appearance of his coming.

    We can now make sense of this scenario in Revelation 17 because we are told the “mystery of the woman” and the “Beast she rides”!

    That Beast that she rides IS the one named “DEATH”, the rider on the pale horse of Revelation 6:8 who has the head as if wounded to “death”.

    He IS the one that “shall ascend out of the bottomless pit” and is “the other who came up” and the “another who shall arise after” the last 10 Presidents of Daniel 7:20 and 24 and Revelation 17:12.

    Make no doubt about it, Bill Clinton, George W. Bush, and Barack Obama fulfill the White horse/lion, the Red horse/bear, the Black horse/leopard prophecies of Revelation 6 and Daniel 7 and 8.

    While the last 10 elected Presidents of the United States, Truman, Eisenhower, Nixon, Kennedy, Carter, Reagan, Bush Sr., Clinton, Bush Jr., and Obama fulfill the 10 horns/kings prophecies of Revelation 17 and Daniel 7.

    To those with ears to hear and eyes to see that pale/chloros rider and little horn of Revelation 6, 13 and 17 and Daniel 7, 8 and 11 should be self explanatory!

    An Ezekiel 33:6 watching one

    • Hi Gavriel,

      You are making quite a few dangerous assumptions that the Bible does not make. This doesn’t mean that you are wrong, but it does mean that you could be lead astray by them – and lead others astray.

      Interpreting the Bible is a serious business and should be handled carefully, especially in these Last Days. I have seen too many brothers and sisters going off in completely wrong directions based on just a few wrong assumptions.

      Please be very, VERY careful with making assumptions – especially when you share them with others.

      Thank you, Gavriel.

      Yours in Christ,

      John Little

  5. Hi John,

    Just a quick question…..could “Come out of her…” mean the Beast System? People just can’t pick up and move overseas. We can’t even sell our home to move to a better location and have extra money, let alone, picking up and moving to another country. God knew/knows most of His people can’t do that. It takes months/years of planning. Also, all of us collectively aren’t even sure “who” it is.

    Hard not to fear or be upset when one is trying to do what they think God wants and no doors open or He doesn’t provide otherwise. It is definitely a perplexing issue. But to think America might be the answer and then think we are being disobedient to the verse in Revelation has me in a sour mood.

    • Hi DarL.

      If it is any consolation, I personally believe that Rome is probably The Great Whore. I’m not completely certain, but it is the direction that I am leaning towards. And, I don’t believe that God is calling us to come out of the Beast System. That’s pretty much impossible.

      As for your ability to leave America… well …God will provide the way, if it is His will. Just make sure to truly submit yourself to the Lord and be ready to jump at the opportunities that He provides you.

      Sorry for the sour mood.

      Keep up the good work, DL. Where there is faith, there is a way.

      Yours in Christ,

      John Little

  6. How can I reach Alexandra Devereaux? I am planning a trip to Uruguay and wanted to make contact with her via email or if you can provide her my email and ask her to contact me. Thanks

    • Hi Ken,

      Sorry for being so tardy in getting back to you. It has been especially difficult getting to comments over the past two weeks. And, comments like yours are very, very important to me.

      I have just now sent the complete text of both the comments that you submitted, along with your email address. If Alexandra can, I am sure that she will contact you as soon as she is able.

      Again, sorry for not getting to this sooner, Ken. It is good to know that you are treating this situation seriously.

      Yours in Christ,

      John Little

  7. Hi John,

    listened to your Mystery Babylon series.
    Just wanted to point you to a study of Chris White on this subect to be found here:

    The author explains, why he thinks, that Jerusalem might fit also quite fit for this role.
    Before I take any lenght in explaining White’s surprising but nevertheless well based position, who about taking a look yourself?

    Best greetings,


    • Hi Michael Stenger,

      I have a lot of respect for Chris White, but I must disagree with him here. Jerusalem has been referred to as ‘Sodom and Egypt’, but never Babylon.

      For Jerusalem to actually become ‘Mystery Babylon’, we would need to have far more time before the Return of Jesus. And, we just do not have that time. We are 48 years into the Last Days – a period of time that only lasts a generation.

      Thank you, Michael.

      Yours in Christ,

      John Little
