Revelation of The Revelation
From this verse on, future prophecies are given.
They all will be fulfilled, but how and when only the
knows. That is why they will mostly be explained in general,
and some whose meanings are necessary will be explained in more
"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 whore
that sitteth upon many
<1>The "great whore" refers to power and wealth
which are gained in order to acquire a name or fulfill desires.
Water is the symbol of
the consciousness. <2>Therefore, this great whore, which is to gain
wealth and power in order to make a name, resides in the
consciousness of many.
"With whom the kings of the earth have committed
fornication, and the inhabitants of the earth have been made drunk
with the wine of her fornication." (Rev. 17:2)
<3>"With whom the kings of the earth" means those
leaders in lower consciousness who have gained high positions in
society will try to be a friend of this whore. They will try to gain
fame and name for selfish purposes. They gained power and fame by
hoarding wealth and imposing suffering on their people in order to
gather more wealth, power, and fame.
<4>Also people on earth (in their lower natures)
"have been made drunk" by following this whore, "her fornication."
"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." (Rev. 17:3)
<5>It is the same beast as the one who was
wounded and then healed (Revelation 13:1,2...). It is the power of
desires toward the attraction of the external world (Maya).
It is because of these desires (which are in the
that people strive to gain wealth and power, in order to fulfill
their longings. <6>However, the human has a thirst for
limitlessness, and when he directs this desire toward the external
world which is limited and finite, he can never quench his thirst.
The finite universe cannot satisfy infinite longings. Only spiritual
knowledge which is infinite can satisfy that immeasurable thirst.
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:" (Rev. 17:4)
<7>Wealth is symbolized by colorful dresses,
gold, precious stones, pearls and other things that people become
attached to as the wealth of the earth. If they become your master,
you are lost.
"And upon her forehead was a name written,
MYSTERY, BABYLON THE GREAT, THE MOTHER OF HARLOTS AND ABOMINATIONS
OF THE EARTH." (Rev. 17:5)
<8>Therefore, "Babylon the Great," that city
which is always referred to as a
female (woman), is
this great whore. It is a great attraction of
Maya and symbolizes the power and wealth when they are gained in
order to inflict suffering on others, or in short, the
"And I saw the
drunken with the blood of the saints, and with the blood of the
and when I saw her, I wondered with great admiration." (Rev. 17:6)
<9>It is the fear of losing power and wealth that
causes people to kill the
Prophets and close their ears to the truth.
angel said unto me,
Wherefore didst thou marvel? I will tell thee the mystery of the
woman, and of the beast
that carrieth her, which hath the seven heads and ten horns." (Rev.
<10>As we remember, this beast is the same as the
first one in chapter 13 that came out of the sea. He had seven heads
and ten horns, symbolizing the power of the desires toward
Maya. This beast is the false desires that make a man pursue the
Mayaistic and egoistic
things and become more and more attached to the external world. And
the desire of becoming famous, having power, making a name and fame
for oneself, and fulfilling these desires, is related to the lower
chakras, or the lower
self of the human. <11>The
woman here is the same as
the lower nature of the human which is carried away by these
desires, and these desires are that beast with the seven heads and
"The beast that thou sawest was, and is not; and
shall ascend out of the bottomless pit, and go into perdition: and
they that dwell on the earth shall wonder, whose names were not
written in the book of life from the foundation of the world, when
they behold the beast that was, and is not, and yet is." (Rev. 17:8)
<12>"The beast was, and is not" means that it is
true that the power of the
tama guna is over the
but really the power of this guna is not, because it causes just an
illusion of separation of man from
God that, by His
Grace, can be overcome.
When it is overcome, there is no beast, and it "is not."
is just something to overcome (through The
Grace). That power is really the illusion of the attraction of
the external world. People follow this illusion of the external
world because of their
false egos, which is
the whore, or the excess, unnecessary, and unspiritual desires which
are, but if overcome, they are not. <14>These desires are created by
the power of the
and the power of the
tama guna causes the lower nature to pursue the wanting of the
external world. But when man reaches the higher nature or higher
chakras, this same beast
(or the power of the
tama guna, the lower
nature) will become a tool for humanity in pursuing the path to
<15>"The beast...shall ascend out of the
bottomless pit." The bottomless pit is the depth of
ignorance. "And go
into perdition: and they that dwell on the earth shall wonder, whose
names were not written in the book of life from the foundation of
the world." This refers to those who do not pursue the right
path and in the many
and again fail in realizing the human potential of be(com)ing
Divine. Instead they go
more and more to
ignorance, and become more bound by the power of the
<16>"Behold the beast that was, and is not, and yet is." So
for them the beast is. For those who overcome (by His
Grace), it is not, and
yet it is. But even those who overcome it, if they are not
God, they might go under
its influence, and it becomes "is" again.
"And here is the mind which hath wisdom. The
seven heads are seven mountains, on which the
sitteth." (Rev. 17:9)
<17>As it was described, these seven heads are
the seven attractions of
which cause the lower nature to pursue them. This
woman, or the
lower nature of
man (that which is attracted to gaining name and fame from power
and wealth) sits on these seven heads of the beast who came out of
the sea (consciousness of man) (Rev. 13:1). <18>Also most of the
governmental systems ()
of the earth (mountain) are based on these attractions (seven
"And there are seven kings: five are fallen, and
one is, and the other is not yet come; and when he cometh, he must
continue a short space." (Rev. 17:10)
<19>Seven times this beast, or this attraction of
Maya, has defiled
humanity. Before the
Prophets or the
Angels of the church
came, he was defiling humanity. After the first
Angel, some people did not believe him, so he defiled them.
After the second time, his head was healed and he came back. He
defiled the people again and caused them to go to their lower
natures. The third
came, and so on. This is symbolized by, "one of his heads as it was
wounded to death; and his deadly wound was healed:..." (Rev. 13:3).
<20>So it will be seven times. And after the seventh
Angel comes, he will be finished after a short period of time.
"And the beast that was, and is not, even he is
the eighth, and is of the seven, and goeth into perdition." (Rev.
<21>As it is described in chapter 20, "the
dragon" will be
taken and locked up for a thousand years (a long period of time)
after the Kingdom of
God comes to the earth.
However, after this time, "he must be loosed a little season" (Rev.
20:3), or the
come back, but this period would be very short.
<22>This last coming after one thousand years (a
long time after the Kingdom comes) would be the eighth time of "the
beast that was, and is not, even he is the eighth." He is the same
as the one who was destroyed as the seventh king, "and is of the
seven." But it will eventually be destroyed, "and when the thousand
years are expired, Satan shall be loosed..." (Rev. 20:7) but after a
short time it will be destroyed, "...was cast into the lake of
fire...and shall be tormented day and night for ever and ever."
<23>So the phrase, "he is the eighth," refers to
this last time of the fall of man and the last lesson humans will
receive in order to understand the nature of the
devil and the beasts, and to become rid of their
(greed), and go to
Pure Consciousness, where the
"And the ten horns which thou sawest are ten
kings, which have received no kingdom as yet; but receive power as
kings one hour with the beast." (Rev. 17:12)
<24>It is these ten horns that are the
by-products of the desires toward the attraction of
Maya that have never gained any kingdom. It is always the beast
itself, or the desire toward the attraction of
Maya, which is the king. They are the by-products of that king.
It is true that the desire and attraction of
Maya are what people try
to overcome, but there will be a very short period of time when
people will still be under the influence of these by-products. They
will rule humanity with anger, vanity, and fear even after they
overcome the false desires. Still these psychological problems will
remain in humanity, but they will not last long. They will be lost
very soon after the Kingdom Of
"These have one mind, and shall give their power
and strength unto the beast." (Rev. 17:13)
<25>These by-products of the beast will try to
bring the beast back and to raise the desires of humanity.
"These shall make war with the Lamb, and the Lamb
shall overcome them: for he is Lord of lords, and King of kings: and
they that are with him are called, and chosen, and faithful." (Rev.
<26>The Lamb will fight with these
devils and overcome them
by his spiritual powers, and by the faithful Elects.
"And he saith unto me, The
waters which thou sawest,
where the whore sitteth, are peoples, and multitudes, and nations,
and tongues." (Rev. 17:15)
<27>As was mentioned earlier,
water is related to the
consciousness of the human. So it is through the consciousness of
man that this whore or this lower nature,
woman, will persuade
humanity to do whatever she wants. It is in all the people, in all
the multitudes, in all the nations, and all of the time. All of
humanity is defiled by these desires, attachments, fears and all the
things that are related to the lower nature in their consciousnesses
the whore sitteth").
"And the ten horns which thou sawest upon the beast, these shall
hate the whore, and shall make her desolate and naked, and shall eat
her flesh, and burn her with fire."
hath put in their hearts to fulfil his will, and to agree, and give
their kingdom unto the beast, until the words of
shall be fulfilled." (Rev. 17:16-17)
<28>Anger, fear, vanity, unhappiness, cowardice,
and all these things that are the by-products of pursuing
Maya, will come to the
people. They will become completely lost and their desires will be
unfulfilled more and more. These things will awaken the people to
the realization that, "We are following all these things because we
are attached and attracted to the external world. Whatever we are
following is just like chasing the
is never going to be captured. We are never going to be able to
obtain satisfaction through this
Maya." <29>And these horns, which will bring frustration to
humanity, will destroy the
woman or the lower
nature, not by the desires of the people being fulfilled, but by
desires not being fulfilled or a new desire arising after any
previous desire is fulfilled. Eventually humanity will reach the
point of understanding that life is not just for following the
<30>They will find out that it is not possible to
fulfill all the desires. And when the desires are not fulfilled,
anger, vanity, fear and attachment will come to them, and they will
feel miserable and depressed. The by-products of the desires will
cause them to realize that gaining name and fame is not the goal of
The Goal Of The Life Is To Be(come)
So these ten horns will eat the flesh of the
and burn her with fire, and they will completely destroy this part
of the consciousness of the human. That is what
God planned for and put in their hearts, to fulfill His Will.
<31>That is why the
come to the people. The
tribulation will be
good for them, because after they go through it, they will reach the
point of understanding that, "This is not the goal of life.
I am following my own egoistical ways.
I am trying to do everything for my little 'I,' and
I am always thinking about myself. But
I am not happy." And they will come to realize that this
is not the way.
<32>The way is to be
God-conscious instead of
<33>These by-products of
Maya will destroy
Maya itself, by itself.
That is why again we see that there is no
devil. <34>Even the
tribulation and becoming lost is a process for reaching a point
of understanding that there is more to life than just pursuing the
external world and its attractions.
woman which thou sawest
is that great city, which reigneth over the kings of the earth."
<35>This lower nature, or the attraction of
Maya, or the pursuance for
fame and name, is what rules the world and all of humanity. All the
humans will have these things, even the greatest Masters. They will
have to overcome this attraction and the desires of the lower nature
to reach their higher nature. <36>And that is why the
woman "reigneth over the
kings of the earth." This lower nature has caused the kings to be so
wrathful and egoistical. They think it is their might or power that
has caused them to become kings, instead of realizing that it was
the might and power of
that allowed them to become kings.
