The Catholic Church and Protestant Churches Prophesied in Revelation 17

Revelations 17_WMSCOG_1202

Last time we studied about the identity of the Roman Catholic Church through Revelation 13. This is not the end of God’s prophecy. God explicitly depicts the appearance of the Roman Catholic Church and rebukes many protestant churches for having left the commandments of God. Through this topic we should realize how important obeying God’s words is and confirm once again that there is no other place where we can receive salvation except the World Mission Society Church of God (WMSCOG).

Revelation 17:1 One of the seven angels who had the seven bowls came and said to me, “Come, I will show you the punishment of the great prostitute, who sits on many waters.

Here, what does the great prostitute who sits on many waters refer to? First of all, let’s study what the words “sits on many waters” mean.

Revelation 17:15 Then the angel said to me, “The waters you saw, where the prostitute sits, are peoples, multitudes, nations and languages.

The words “sits on many waters” means “ to reign over many people of the world.” In addition, a prostitute means an adulterous woman. Then, what do “woman and adultery” refer to? Let’s check the meaning of the woman first.

1 Peter 5:13 She who is in Babylon, chosen together with you, sends you her greetings, and so does my son Mark.

1 Peter 5:13 The church that is at Babylong, elected together with you, saluteth you; and so doth Mark my son (KJV).

In the King James Version Bible, She is stated as ‘The church’. In other words, a woman refers to a church. Then, what does the words “a church committing adultery” mean?

James 4:4 You adulterous people, don’t you know that friendship with the world is hatred toward God? Anyone who chooses to be a friend of the world becomes an enemy of God.

Adultery means to be friends with the world. In other words, a church that focuses on the power of the world, abandons the words of God. Then, which church is the one committing adultery and reigning over many people of the world? Continuing on with verse 3 let’s find out the identity.

Revelation 17:3 Then the angel carried me away in the Spirit into a desert. There I saw a woman sitting on a scarlet beast that was covered with blasphemous names and had seven heads and ten horns.

As studied in Daniel 7 and Revelation 13, the beast with ten horns indicates the Roman Empire. The words “a woman sitting on the Roman Empire” means an adulterous church that controls the Roman Empire as it pleases. Then which church controls the Roman Empire as it pleases? The answer is the Roman Catholic Church. Like the prophecy, the Roman Catholic Church manipulated the Roman Empire the way it wanted to in the medieval age and also many people followed the Catholic Church. God prophesied about its characterisitics and appearance, to reveal that the prostitute is the Roman Catholic Church.

Revelation 17:2 With her the kings of the earth committed adultery

Does kings of the earth not mean the leaders of countries such as a president or a prime minister? Today, The Roman Catholic Church has many members throughout the world. It also has a close relationship with many leaders of the nations of the world. Today, among all the churches in the world, it is only the Roman Catholic Church that fits this prophecy perfectly.

Revelation 17:4 The woman was dressed in purple and scarlet, and was glittering with gold, precious stones and pearls. She held a golden cup in her hand, filled with abominable things and the filth of her adulteries.

The woman, namely the church, was said to be dressed in purple and scarlet. Purple and scarlet are the colors of the wardrobe of the Pope and the cardinals. And the church is glittering with gold, precious stones and pearls. Let’s have a look at the interior of the cathedral decorated luxuriously. Is there another church glittered with gold, precious stones and pearls other than the Roman Catholic Church in the world? Also, the church holds a golden cup in her hand. The Roman Catholic Church uses the golden cup during its services. It is only the Roman Catholic Church that fulfills this prophecy. God explains it to us in detail to disclose the identity of the Roman Catholic Church. Moreover, the Bible explains about not only the Roman Catholic Church but also the many other false churches following it.


God calls the Roman Catholic Church the great Babylon. Like the history that a long time ago the nation of Babylon destroyed the temple of God, killed the people of God and also took some of them captive, spiritual Babylon also has destroyed the temple of God, killed the people of God and taken some of them captive. God calls it Babylon to make us understand that point.

Moreover, God calls the Roman Catholic Church the mother of prostitutes and of the abominations of the earth. If the Roman Catholic Church is the mother, will there not be her daughters whom she bore, namely the prostitutes and the abominations of the earth? Then, who are the daughters – the prostitutes and the abominations of the earth? They are the Protestant churches following the doctrines of the Catholic Church. Protestant churches, which follow the doctrines such as Sunday service, Christmas and cross reverence made by the Roman Catholic Church, are the daughters of the Roman Catholic Church and the prostitutes. If the Roman Catholic Church is the great Babylon the Protestant churches are small Babylons. Even the Roman Catholic Church calls herself the “Mother Church” of all churches.

The sins of the Roman Catholic Church do not end here. God recorded every single sin the Roman Catholic Church had committed in the medieval age.

Revelation 17:6 I saw that the woman was drunk with the blood of the saints, the blood of those who bore testimony to Jesus. When I saw her, I was greatly astonished.

The church claiming to believe in God is said to be drunken with the blood of the saints. Just like the words of this prophecy, the Roman Catholic Church installed the Inquisition and massacred and tortured innocent Christians cruelly in the medieval age. Historians testified that more than 50 million Christians were sacrificed during this period. The tools the Roman Catholic Church used for torture at that time and the paintings that depict people being executed are truly horrible.

So far, we have studied the identity of the Roman Catholic Church and the Protestant Churches following the doctrines of the Roman Catholic Church. God reveals their identity with the word “prostitute”. As a church, it does not worship God but is friends with the world as well as betrays God and kills the people of God. How can it be considered a church that believes in God? In addition to that the Protestant Churches, even though they know the reality of the Roman Catholic Church they follow the doctrines of the Roman Catholic Church, can never avoid God’s stern judgment.

    According to the prophecy of the Bible, we need to know exactly who the group that opposes God is. We must lead the poor souls who still belong to the Catholic Church or the Protestant Church to the arms of God.

  2. jane says:

    The prophecy of the Bible is so amazing and very surprised. Who can explain the prophecy about the Catholic church?

  3. Eun a says:

    If we keep the commandments of men, we will be destroyed.

  4. Casey says:

    The Bible indicates that the Roman Catholic is the Babylon where we must come out. We must go to Zion where God dwells in and keep the feasts of God.

  5. margo says:

    I feel very  fear to know the truth about Catholic church. Who can know the reality of Catholic church and Protestant church.  They have double face.  We need the mind to see the truth.

  6. It’s really surprising.

    We must see through the reality of the Roman Catholic Church. Even if they act as if they are the workers of God, they destroyed God’s commandments such as the Passover; Instead they introduced pagan customs such as Christmas and Sunday.

  7. elohist4ever says:

    This article reveals the identity of Roman Catholic. Although it seems that Catholic church worships God faithfully, she stands against God. How dreadful it is!

  8. Timothy says:

    By reading this article, I come to realize that there is no other church where we can receive salvation except the World Mission Society Church of God (WMSCOG). The Roman Catholic Church is a felonious criminal group because they have killed more than 50 millions people during the dark age. We must come out of her and come to WMSCOG where we can meet God in the flesh.

  9. Niclee says:

    In REV’s prophecy is God’s will about our salvation, to show the reality of Satan through the world history. So REV is the prophecy we must know and study. But many churches try to hide it and lots of Christians don’t know it. It is so sad!

  10. Brad says:

    Rrev 13 confirms what God showed us in Dan 7, that the Catholic Church is the organization that is given authority and power from the devil. Although the Bible shows this to us clearly, many people in Babylon Churches don’t know and understand this because they keep the rules and commandments of men, like Sunday service, Christmas, Easter and worshiping the cross (whether they do it knowingly or unknowingly). The Catholic Church killed more than 50 million innocent Christians in the most horrible way during the medieval age. They are prophesied to oppress the saints of God. Let us open our eyes to prophecies and know the enemy in this last age.

    • Irenetheron says:

      Amen, the organization to accord with every prophecy in Rev. 17 is on other than the Roman Catholic church, many people of the Catholic are drunken with the ‘commandments of men’ as prophesied in the Bible. So they don’t even know the identity of Satan , and unconsciously share in its sins. Which means they are against God.

      Isaiah 29:13-14 niv.  [The Lord says: “These people come near to me with their mouth and honor me with their lips, but their hearts are far from me. Their worship of me is made up only of rules taught by men.  14  Therefore once more I will astound these people with wonder upon wonder;  “the wisdom of the wise will perish, the intelligence of the intelligent will vanish.”  ]

      On the contrary, only those who keep the  New Covenant established by the precious blood of Jesus have all wisdom and understanding from God .

      Ephesians 1:7-9 niv.[In him we have redemption through his blood, the forgiveness of sins, in accordance with the riches of God’s grace   8  that he lavished on us with ‘all wisdom and understanding.’ 9 And he made known to us the mystery of his will according to his good pleasure, which he purposed in Christ ]

      The World Mission Society Church of God is the only church  to keep the New Covenant according to example of Christ, and now  its members earnestly preach to expose the identity of Satan and  proclaim Elohim God, the last saviors of this age who have come as “the Spirit and the Bride.
