“And here is the mind which hath [WISDOM]. The seven heads are seven mountains, on which the woman sitteth.
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.
And the beast that was, and is not, even he is the eighth, and is of the seven, and goeth into perdition.
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.
These have one mind, and shall give their power and strength unto the beast” (Revelation 17:9-13).
“And the [WOMAN WHICH THOU SAWEST IS THAT GREAT CITY], which reigneth over the kings of the earth” (Revelation 17:18).
JERUSALEM is that Great City (Revelation 11:1-8).
Many people overlook the fact that in John’s vision of the end of time, the holy city, the great city, Jerusalem “was spiritually called Sodom and Egypt, where also our Lord was crucified” (Revelation 11:8).
Our lord Jesus explained the events that will be taking place at the TIME OF THE END when he said:
“When ye therefore shall [SEE THE ABOMINATION OF DESOLATION], spoken of by Daniel the prophet, [STAND IN THE HOLY PLACE], standing where it ought not (whoso readeth, let him understand)” (Matthew 24:15).
“And when ye shall [SEE JERUSALEM COMPASSED WITH ARMIES], then know that the [DESOLATION THEREOF IS NIGH]” (Luke 21:20).
“[THEN LET THEM WHICH BE IN JUDÆA FLEE INTO THE MOUNTAINS]” (Matthew 24:16).
It’s all about Jerusalem! The coming WORLD CAPITAL of the SEVENTH WORLD KINGDOM, aka NEW WORLD ORDER. The Antichrist or Seventh world king and then the devil himself who is the Eighth king will rule for a short time from Jerusalem (Daniel 8:23–24, 11:36–37) (Revelation 17:10-11).
