Bible Study was originally written by Roger Christopherson
This Bible Study was originally written by Roger Christopherson & published at http://www.theseason.org/
This study is about a city that has never existed like this before. God has warned us in Revelation 18:4 to
"come out of her"; but come out of what? Where is this city, and when are we to come out of her?
John the apostle was in heaven where Jesus had taken him "in the spirit", and Jesus told him what to write so that you and I can be warned in this end time of those things that shall take place right before our eyes, so that we could identify this city as it develops all around us.
17:1 "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
that sitteth upon many waters:"
This city that we are going to study is called "Mystery Babylon", and she is referred to as "the great whore". The subject of this verse and chapter is "the judgment of the great whore".
This city of
Today it is all around us, it’s world wide,
and we’re living in it, in these times.
Do you get the feeling we are not talking about a,
brick and mortar city,
like Pittsburgh or London or even Jeresalem here?

you'll see the city is well under construction!
Revelation 17:2 "With whom the kings of the
earth have committed fornication, and the inhibiters of the earth have
been made drunk with the wine of her fornication."
"The kings of the earth" are the kings and rulers of the governments of all the nations on earth today.

Oh! we're talking about "A WORLD POLITICAL SYSTEM"

They turn their eyes away as millions are dying in one part of the world
because it doesn't fit their agenda, and lie to gain favor from this
kingdom when they can prove that it is in line with the whores power
structure else where.
Revelation 17:3 "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."
Jesus is revealing this to John, saying that there will be a time when these seven heads or supernatural powers will be brought to earth with Satan when he is kicked out of heaven onto the earth.
Remember, John is in heaven, where Jesus took him spiritually, and he is viewing this city from the perspective of "The day of the Lord"
[The day of the Lord's return] which is all still in the future for us reading this.
This time that John saw is now very close, and these names of blasphemy are becoming common in our land, people are listening to them over and over, to the point that most Christians believe them.
Laws are being changed almost daily, they now allow the killing of the
unborn; the acceptance of Sodomites which perverts joining in a
common marriage. Even
the major denominations are accepting all of these things that go
against God's Holy Word. This "scarlet color" represents royalty, and the very highest political powers, and that is
exactly where the World Council of
within this whore, called
the United Nation.
When you take Jesus Christ, as the Son of God, out of
Christianity, then it becomes nothing but a man made religion like all the rest of the religions of the world.
This new system is taking the gift and mercy of God,
by faith through repentance, out of Christianity.
Now Christianity is becoming a form of religion that man must follow, to conform to the conditions of man's new religious order.
This scarlet beast is out to please everyone,for it is designed not to offend anyone. This Beast is setting up the way for the arrival of Satan when he is cast out onto the earth, and when Satan comes, he will bring his ten supernatural kings with him.True Christianity is a reality, not a religion,
it is people who live in Jesus Christ.
Live Link to- Church is not Christianity. God's Word is Christianity.
17:4 "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:"
This "one world political system" was set up by the Kenites to serve their vast merchandising network.
They are the ships of Tarshish and they control the wealth of the world through their industrial strength,
their trade laws and merchandising systems.
The kings of the earth find joy in doing business with the world system of this city of

Revelation 17:5 "And upon her forehead was
a name written, MYSTERY,
and abominations of the earth."
and we are living in it
and part of it as we go about our daily lives.
God is calling His people to come out of her,
don't do business as she does business,
and don't take part
in the many fornications of that system.
Revelation 17:6 "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."
"Admiration", Hardly, for this city's system has feasted on the blood of the martyrs of Jesus, and as John the apostle looked on that devilish system, he looked with "great astonishment".
It is a cruel and wicked system as it takes
Jesus Christ and God's commandments out of our land.
This system enslaves millions all over the world for the purpose of filling its ships and feeding its merchandising trafficking.
Ezekiel 27 is a parable of
how these ships of Tarshish were made strong through their trade. This parable of the building of a
ship, is given for us to see how this great whore will be build, and
feed off that system.
Ezekiel 27:24,25 "These were thy merchants in all sorts of things, in blue clothes, and broidered work, and in chests of rich apparel, bound with cords, and made of cedar, among thy merchandise."  "The ships of Tarshish did sin of thee in thy market: and thou wast replenished, and made very glorious in the midst of the seas." 
As you go into a stores look to see where these items
were made, most of them
are from some heathen
county in the
Ezekiel 27:26, 27 "Thy rowers have brought
thee into great waters: the east wind hath broken thee in the midst of
the seas."  "Thy riches, and thy fairs,
thy merchandise, thy mariners, and thy pilots, thy calkers, and the
occupiers of thy merchandise, and all thy men of war, that
are in thee, and in all thy company which is in the midst of
thee, shall fall into the midst of the seas in the day of thy ruin." 
These Kenites have taken their ships and industries to the east, and their ships have followed the east wind as they bring all the overpriced merchandise back to Christian nations, to be bought at super inflated prices.
Can this system go on as it is set up today?
No, for it is doomed to failure, we will see it continue to fall. As we look at the stock markets, and see the internal corruption continue to build, destruction is just ahead.
When there is a problem in the world where their suppliers are hindered, this system sends in their men of war to take control of the area, and set up a government that will take part in that world system of merchandising.
"And the woman which thou sawest is that great city, which reigneth over the
kings of the earth."
So the whore,
the woman that is feasting on the blood
of the saints, is not a person, but a city.
That great city of
We are in the latter days,
and we can see that city all around us.
So let’s take a look at the structure
of that great city of
Cain was born, the son of Satan, through the womb of Eve, and if this throws you, then you will never fully understand what is happening in these end times, nor most of the teaching of our Lord Jesus Christ.
Cain had killed his half brother Abel, the son of Adam, who was also
born through the womb of Eve. Because
of that murder, God drove him from the Garden of Eden, and this is
where we will begin with the structure of
identified these Kenites beginnings in
John "Ye [Kenite scribes and Pharisee’s] are of your father the devil [Satan], and the lusts of your father [Satan] you will do. He [Cain] was a murderer from the beginning [Cain murdered Abel: Genesis 4:8-12], and abode not in the truth, because there is no truth in him. When he [Cain] speaketh a lie, he [Cain] speaketh of his own [Satan], for he [Satan] is a liar, and the father of lies."
let’s take a closer look at the structure of that great city
STRUCTURE OF THAT
"And Cain went out
from the presence of the Lord, and dwelt in the
When Cain went out from the presence of the Lord, he was in trouble from the start.
When you and I leave the presence of the Lord, and try to live and exist without the help and guidance of our Heavenly Father, we also are in trouble.
went to the
"And Cain knew his wife;
and she conceived, and bare Enoch: and he builded a city, and called
the name of the city, after the name of his son, Enoch."
first thing to be aware of is that the children of Cain, are called the

children were not destroyed by the flood of Noah's day, but that
lineage was carried well beyond the flood, as we read in I Chronicles
2:55. The first
son of Cain was Enoch, and Cain built his first city and named it after
his son Enoch. In these end
times, it will also be the offspring of Cain, the Kenites that will
build this great city called "
We write about this later.
Genesis "And unto Enoch was born
Irad: and Irad begat Mehujael: and Mehujael begat Methusael: and
Methusael begat Lemach."
continue on, we see that Cain and his children liked to name their
children after the names of Adam's children. These Kenites are deceivers,
and they like to be hidden in all that they do. When you
don't know who they are, or what they are, then you begin to trust what
they say, and act on their advise. Let’s look at after the flood, when
another great city was built, and the world came together in Genesis
Genesis 10:8 "And
"Nimrod" in the
"Marad", and it
means "Rebel". And when Marad is given in the first person plural, it
reads "Jussive", meaning, "to rebel". It is through this person Nimrod of the Adamic lineage
that Satan made his first attempt to rise up a universal ruler of flesh
men on the earth. Since then, we have seen many other attempts to do
just as Nimrod tried to do, such as Nebuchadnezzar, Alexander the
Great, Napoleon, Hitler, Stalin and each of these failed, but the ruler
of the end times, Satan, will
sit on his throne and declare himself to be God. Many
proclaiming Christians of this earth age, living in these latter times
will believe him to be God, after seeing his supernatural acts.
Thessalonians 2:3 "Let no man deceive you by
any means: for that day shall not come, except there come a falling
away first, and that man of sin be revealed, the son of perdition,"
Satan is the son of perdition, and the falling away is the apostasy that is covering the earth today.
II Thessalonians 2:4 "Who opposeth and exalteth himself above all that is called God, or that is worshipped; so that he as God sitteth in the Temple of God, shewing himself that he is God."
Michael will boot him and his fallen angels out of heaven and they will fall upon this earth very soon.
This man of sin that opposes every teaching of God, and tries to put himself over God,
will be here on earth,
presenting himself to the people of this earth
in their flesh bodies.
With his supernatural powers,
he will convince
many pro-claiming Christians
that he is God.
Go to Genesis 10:9 and we will see this first man that tried to promote himself to be head of the first world order following the flood of Noah's day.
Genesis 10:9 "He was a mighty hunter before the Lord: wherefore it is said,
"Even as Nimrod the might hunter before the Lord."
There is a point that you have to understand, to get the full meaning of this verse, and that is in the phrase, "before the Lord". In the original text it reads, "in defiance of the Lord", and this is far different than stated in this version of the manuscripts.
Everything that Nimrod did was to defy YHVH the creator directly.
Just as Cain was the
builder of cities, so also was Nimrod, and the name of the first city
he build was
the beginning of his kingdom was
The location of this empire that
Nimrod established was in the
Genesis 11:1 "And the whole earth was of
one language, and of one speech."
For the people of the entire earth to function under the one world government there has to be a common language so that all the people can be controlled from a single source.
Today we have that language in and through the computer.
Genesis 11:2 "And it came to pass, as
they journeyed from the east, that they found a plain in the
Noah and his three sons and their wives
were the eight Adamic survivors from the flood, and Nimrod
was the grandson of Noah's son Ham. These people were the survivors of
the flood who came from the east to this
This same land is the center of the activity that is going on today.
As soon as order could be established; the governmental structure had to be rebuild; as well as the internal structure of the people. Schools had to be rebuilt, hospitals established, shops opened, police and fire protection established and so on. To do this, our forces turned the control of this job over to the United Nation, the one world governmental body, and the work began.
Notice just as in Nimrod's
day, this demanded extensive planning, the making of the bricks and
mortar to put up the structures so that the other things of life can go
on. There is nothing new under the sun, and each time these systems are
coming into power, it demands the same sort of planning.
Genesis 11:3 "And they said one to another, "Go to, let us make brick, and burn them throughly." And they had brick for stone, and slime had they for morter."
The planning stage begins when the heads of the families or nations come together. They plan for the cities and homes, and way of life that will go on within that community and government, to see that the way of life conforms to those plans.
Genesis 11:4 And they said, "Go to, let
us build us a city and a tower, whose top may reach unto heaven; and
let us make us a name, lest we be scattered abroad upon the face of the
whole earth." "
Just like today,
these men want to work out their own salvation,
make their big plans and
leave God out of their lives.
It is no great surprise to us that the world government and our leaders are doing what they are by removing God from all parts of our lives. They took God out of the schools, and removed the commandments from the sight of the people. They took away most of the things that shape the morals of our people and our nation, and left it up to you to plan your own life. They try to do what is right in the sight of their own eyes.
The problem here is that their reasoning and choices are based on what they are taught, and when there is no standard set for their life except the secular humanism that they have been taught in their schools, and that is what all their choices will be based upon.
the Kenite way of life.
"Let us make us a name, lest we be scattered", if we call ourselves honest and good, maybe that will be enough to make us good. We make the name, do the work, and then we get all the credit: That’s the idea even for today.
Why give God any credit, when we can take it all for ourselves, this was the thinking of the people in Nimrod's day.
Remember that it was under this world order that all of the heathen religious thought, that is common today around the world, got it's start.
You don't work out your own
salvation by trying to out think God. This is how the idea
of cloning got started. Mankind is trying to design or
clone a being that would not have the human defects, being subject to
disease, sickness and growing old like these old human bodies are
Genesis 11:5 "And the Lord came down to
see the city and the tower, which the children of men builded."
God stated in the Bible what man has to do to be saved and have eternal life.
However, even today man is still trying to build his towers to reach his own false peace and salvation.
They are trying to bypass the sacrifice of our Lord Jesus Christ, and His shed blood on the cross.
They rejected God's plan for man, and
substituted their designed form called
in place of God's way.
Notice that the word for the term "come down" in the Hebrew text is "Anthropopatheia". This is the ascribing to God what belongs to human and rational beings, irrational creatures, or inanimate things. In other words, man does the act on his own accord, and then calls it from God.
Genesis 11:6 "And the Lord said,
"Behold, the people is one, and they have all one language; and this
they begin to do: and now nothing will be restrained from them, which they have imagined to
they have imagined to do" is
Everything that is done in this
world system of Nimrod is nothing but confusion, and leading to their
destruction. It is
the same practice that our current One World Political System is using.
Our world conferences are nothing but
now teach these people in Nimrod's world a little humility.
Genesis 11:7 "Go to, let Us go down, and
there confound their language, that they may not understand one
When "Go to, let Us go down" is used in other passages of Scripture, it always means that judgment is coming very shortly, such as in Exodus 3:8. Those people went too far, and in their own minds they are trying to depart from God's ways. We see in this case that God will bring confusion into their language, to where no one will understand what his neighbor has to say. Think of the confusion that this would bring on the construction site, where no one understands what the boss is trying to say. They will not be able to read the instructions, and the job would stop right there at the drawing board.
In Ancient Babylon, the confusion of tongues brought
about the scattering of men across the earth.
At the return of our Lord Jesus Christ, at the seventh
and last trump,
that confusion will be undone by the Holy
Spirit. There is no
God and His Spirit.
There will be no need of translators when the Holy Spirit speaks through a person. When God's "elect" are brought up to give an answer, and the Holy Spirit speaks through that person. All the people will understand what he or she will say without the need for translators.
When Satan is here on earth, claiming that he is God, and God's "elect" are brought up to give an answer, the Holy Spirit will speak through them.
All the people of the world will understand what he or she will say without the need for translators because when the Holy Spirit is speaking through His elect everyone on earth will hear what they say in their own language; even dialect, just like back in Acts 2: 4-6. (they'll be "Speaking in Tongues")
2: 4 – 6
"And they were all filled with
the Holy Spirit,
and began to speak with other tongues, as the Spirit gave them
"And there were dwelling at
This is what speaking in tongues is all about.
When the Holy Spirit spoke
through these people every person there in
Acts 2:7, 8 And they were all amazed and marveled, saying one to another, "Behold, are not all these which speak Galileans?  "And how hear we every man in our own tongue, wherein we were born?" 
This is the tongue of the Holy Spirit, for when it is spoken, it is clear and just as easy to understand as when your own family is speaking to you. The Holy Spirit can cause this confusion to come over people, or remove the confusion in language when He deems it necessary.
Genesis 11:8 "So the Lord scattered them
abroad from then upon the face of all the earth: and they left off to
build the city."
The Lord caused this scattering, but even in these end times, the world government will try to bring the nations together with a common understanding.
However that bonding through language will not last long. For our kenite world is controlled through its merchandising, it has to have a common money exchange, [central banking] and the means to get a common flow of its goods to markets so that people can afford to buy their overpriced merchandise.
As the empire of Nimrod sat in its confusion of tongues, the people left their jobs and cities, and scattered in family groups throughout the face of the earth.
Genesis 11:9 "Therefore is the name of
(It's called religion)
There is nothing new under the sun; for just as their intension of that first government was outlined in setting up their plans, God's plan was to put that government out of business.
National governments, even the Unites States of America, are allowing the "New World Order", [through The United Nations] to take care of the vital things that all nations should be doing on their own, which is the security for the nation, the protecting of the borders, and the establishing it’s own money system.
Also they give over all the other things that go to make up a home, a community, a nation, and the governing of that nation to the control of this One World System.
Stop and take a look at what our national leaders are doing today. You will see that the early Babylon of Nimrod is reflected in everything that our leaders are doing.

and built on land,
