Revelation 17 – Are You a Faithful Follower?


John shares more details about some of the images he’s already described. He describes Babylon as a prostitute who has committed abominations with the kings of the earth. Throughout the Hebrew Scriptures idolatry is referred to as adultery. The city of Babylon was filled with corruption and evil.

Those who are faithful are seen as the unblemished Bride of Christ because of the forgiveness offered through the sacrifice of the Lamb of God.

The 7 hills most likely refers to Rome, a city built on 7 hills. The ten kings could refer to 10 specific emperors who reigned over the Roman Empire or it could refer to the totality of evil kings in history. These beast with 10 horns turns on Babylon and destroys it. Eventually, evil will destroy itself.
