In Rev 19, The “Whore” Is Jerusalem

Rev 19:2 For true & righteous are His (God’s) judgments: for He has judged the great whore (Jerusalem), who corrupted the earth (the land) with her fornication, & has avenged the blood of His servants on her.

Rev 19:1 And after these things I heard a great voice of much people in the heaven [the sky], saying, Alleluia; Salvation, and glory, and honour, and power, unto the Lord our God:

The Greek word “ourano” for “heaven” in Rev 19:1 is singular, that means that the word “heaven” in Rev 19:1 is not talking about the place where God dwells, instead it is talking about the “sky”, if the Greek word for “heaven” were plural, then that would be talking about the place where God dwells.

Rev 19:2  For true and righteous are His judgments: for He has judged the great whore [Jerusalem], who corrupted the earth [the land] with her fornication, and has avenged the blood of His servants on her.

The Greek word “” (ghay) for the words “the earth” in Rev 19:2 is referring to “land”, it is not referring to the entire planet.

Rev 19:3 And again they said, Alleluia And her smoke rose up forever and ever [her smoke goes up to the ages of the ages].

Rev 19:4 And the four and twenty elders and the four beasts fell down and worshiped God that sat on the throne, saying, Amen; Alleluia.

Rev 19:5 And a voice came out of the throne, saying, Praise our God, all you His servants, and those fearing Him, both small and great.

Rev 19:6 And I heard as it were the voice of a great multitude, and as the voice of many waters, and as the voice of mighty thunderings, saying, Alleluia: for has reigned the Lord the God of us the Almighty [the Ruler of the universe].

Rev 19:7 Let us be glad and rejoice, and give honour to Him [God]: for the marriage of the Lamb [Christ] is come, and his wife [the church] has made herself ready.

Rev 19:7 makes it very clear that Christ is not God.

Rev 19:8 And to her [the church] was granted that she should be arrayed in fine linen, clean and white: for the fine linen is the righteousness of saints.

Rev 19:9 And he [the angel (messenger) from Rev 17:1] saith unto me, Write, Blessed are they which are called unto the marriage supper of the Lamb. And he saith unto me, These are the true sayings of God.

Rev 19:10 And I fell at his feet to worship him [the angel (messenger)]. And he said unto me, do not do that: I am a fellow servant of you, and of your brothers [the church] that have the testimony of Yeshua: worship God: for the testimony of Yeshua is the spirit of prophecy.

Rev 19:11 And I saw the heaven [the sky] opened, and behold a white horse; and he that sat upon him was called Faithful and True, and in righteousness he judges and makes war.

The Greek word “ouranon” for “heaven” in Rev 19:11 is singular, that means that the word “heaven” in Rev 19:11 is not talking about the place where God dwells, instead it is talking about the “sky”, if the Greek word for “heaven” were plural, then that would be talking about the place where God dwells.

Rev 19:12 His eyes were as a flame of fire, and on his head were many crowns; and he had a name written, that no man knew, but he himself.

Rev 19:13 And he was clothed with a vesture [robe] dipped in blood: and his name is called The Word [the] of God.

Rev 19:11-13 is talking about Christ.

Rev 19:14 And the armies which were in the heaven [the sky] followed him [Christ] upon white horses, clothed in fine linen, white and clean.

The Greek word “ourano” for “heaven” in Rev 19:14 is singular, that means that the word “heaven” in Rev 19:14 is not talking about the place where God dwells, instead it is talking about the “sky”, if the Greek word for “heaven” were plural, then that would be talking about the place where God dwells.

Rev 19:15 And out of his [Christ’s] mouth goes forth a sharp sword, that with it he should strike down the nations [heathen world]: and he will rule them with a rod of iron: and he treads the winepress of the fury and of the wrath of God the Almighty [the Ruler of the universe].

Rev 19:15 shows that Christ is not God. God rules the nations (the heathen world) through Christ, God gave Christ that authority.

The “heathen world” that is spoken about in Rev 19:15 are the people that were alive during the time Revelation was written.

In Rev 17 and 18, Jerusalem received her judgment from God by God using the Romans to destroy Jerusalem, now in Rev 19, God uses Christ to “strike down” the heathen world, the heathen world was the Roman world, the Roman world was led by the Roman Empire, Rev 19 speaks about how God uses Christ to “strike down” the Roman Empire.

Rev 19:16 And he [Christ] has on his vesture [robe] and on his thigh a name written, King Of Kings, And Lord Of Lords.

Rev 19:17 And I saw an angel standing in the sun (sun light); and he cried with a loud voice, saying to all the fowls that fly in the midst of heaven (mid-sky), Come and gather yourselves together unto the supper of the great God;

The sun is said to be in mid-heaven, when it has reached the meridian, mid-heaven, the highest point in the heavens, which the sun occupies at noon. where what is done can be seen and heard by all. (Thayers Greek Lexicon)

The Amplified Bible’s translation of Rev 19:17 is the closest to the Greek text.

Rev 19:17 Amp Bible Then I saw a single angel stationed in the sun’s light, and with a mighty voice he shouted to all the birds that fly across the sky, Come, gather yourselves together for the great supper of God,

Rev 19:18 That you might eat [the] flesh of kings, and flesh of commanders, and [the] flesh of captains, and [the] flesh of horses and their riders, and [the] flesh of all men, both free men and slaves, and small and great!

Rev 19:18 is talking about what Rev 13:16 says.

Rev 13:16 And it [the false prophet] causeth all, both small and great, rich and poor, free and slaves, to receive a mark [the mark of the beast (the mark of the Roman Empire) in their right hand, or in their foreheads:

“the flesh of all men, both free men and slaves, small and great!” spoken of in Rev 19:18 are the people that received the mark of the beast (the mark of the Roman Empire) that Rev 13:16 talks about.

In Rev 19, God has Christ kill all who received the mark of the beast [the mark of the Roman Empire].

The number of the beast that is spoken of in Rev 1318 is a number of a man, that man is Nero Caesar. The “beast” that is spoken about in Rev 13:1 is the Roman Empire led by Nero Caesar.

In Rev 13:18 John shows who the beast is by using numbers, the numbers of Nero’s name =  666, by using a number to letter code called gematria, John was telling the seven churches that Revelation was written to, that Nero is the beast of Rev 13:1, without saying Nero’s name. The numerical values of the Hebrews letters of Neron Kesar (Nero Caesar) = 666.

A Hebrew spelling of Nero Caesar’s name was Nrwn Qsr.

N = 50
R =  200
W = 6
N = 50
Q = 100
S = 60
R = 200

The “mark of the beast” that is written about in Rev 13:16, means that the people pledge their allegiance to the beast, those who pledged their allegiance to Caesar, pledged their allegiance to the Roman Empire, those who pledged their allegiance to the Roman Empire, spiritually wore the mark of the Roman Empire, the number of the beast is not a “microchip”. The number of the beast has nothing to do with our time period.

Rev 13:18 Here is wisdom. Let him who has understanding calculate the number of the beast [the Roman Empire], for the number is that of a man [Nero Caesar]; and his number is six hundred and sixty-six.

The mark of the beast means that those who pledge allegiance to the Roman Empire, wear the mark of the Roman Empire, in Rev 13, the Roman Empire is led by Nero, God made Nero commit suicide in AD68, 2 yrs before Jerusalem was destroyed, but all the people who continued to pledge their allegiance to the Roman Empire, wore the mark of the Roman Empire long after God had Nero kill himself.

Rev 19:19 And I saw the beast [the Roman Empire], and the kings of the earth [the land], and their armies, gathered together to make [the] war against him [Christ] that sat on the horse, and against his army.

The Greek word “” (ghay) for the words “the earth” in Rev 19:19 is referring to “land”, it is not referring to the entire planet.

Rev 19:20 And the beast [the Roman Empire] was taken, and with it the false prophet [the 2nd beast of Rev 13] who performed miracles before it, with which it [the false prophet] deceived them that had received the mark of the beast [the mark of the Roman Empire]  and them that worshiped it’s [the Roman Empire’s] image. These both were cast alive into the lake of fire burning with brimstone.

The English translation of Rev 19:20 says that the beast is a “he”, but the Greek word “therion” for the English word “beast” in Rev 19:20 is neuter gender, the Greek word “therion” means “a wild beast, animal”, therefore the “beast” is an “it”, not a “he”.

The “beast” spoken of in Rev 19:20 is the Roman Empire led by Caesar.

The “false prophet” in Rev 19:20 is the second beast that Rev 13:11 speaks of.

The English translation of Rev 13:11 says that the beast is a “he”, but the Greek word “therion” for the English word “beast” in Rev 13:11 is neuter gender, the Greek word “therion” means “a wild beast, animal”, therefore the “beast” is an “it”, not a “he”.

The first beast in Rev 13 is the Roman Empire empowered by the dragon (the dragon is Rome), so in Rev 19:20 both beasts of Rev 13 are cast into the lake of fire. The dragon (Rome) is cast into the lake fire in Rev 20:10.

Rev 19:21 And the rest were killed with the sword of him [Christ] that sat upon the horse, which sword proceeded out of his mouth: and all the fowls were filled with their flesh.

Rev 19:20-21 talk about the day of the Lord, the day of the Lord is when God destroys the ungodly people by fire, 2 Pet 3:7 talks about the day of the Lord, the day of the Lord happened after God used the Romans to destroy Jerusalem in AD70.

Revelation is about things that happened before Jerusalem was destroyed, Revelation is about the destruction of Jerusalem, Revelation is about the day of the Lord, the day of the Lord happened after Jerusalem was destroyed, and Revelation talks about the “new heavens and new earth” that 2 Peter 3:13 talks about.

The “new heavens and new earth” is spiritual, it is not a new planet, “new Jerusalem” that is spoken about in Rev 21, is the church, the church are the people that believe God’s Son, Yeshua is the Messiah (the Christ), that don’t practice sin.

Revelation is not about our time period, everything in Revelation has already happened, everything in the New Testament has already happened.

The “whole world” that is spoken about in Matt 24:14, Rev 12:9 & Rev 16:14 is the Roman world, here is a link to my post that will show that Matt 24:14 & Rev 12:9 & Rev 16:14 are talking about the Roman world, not the planet https://bornfromabove7.wordpress.com/category/revelation-is-about-the-roman-world-not-the-planet/

    • That’s great Jason, thank you for taking the time to read my blog, for 18 years I believed things about the Bible that were not true, it was only after God removed me from false teaching that God by the Holy Spirit, revealed the truth that I now teach online, it took over a year for the Holy Spirit to change my mind about all the false things that I had been taught by people that claim to be Christian
