“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).
Jesus says: “When ye shall see the abomination of desolation, spoken of by Daniel the prophet, standing where it ought not, (let him that readeth understand,) then let them that be in Judæa flee to the mountains” (Mark 13:14).
“And when ye shall see Jerusalem compassed with armies, then know that the desolation thereof is nigh” (Luke 21:20).
The Apsotle Paul, said:“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; 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” (2 Thessalonians 2:3–4).
In John’s vison, he wrote saying: “AND there was given me a reed like unto a rod: and the angel stood, saying, Rise, and measure the temple of God, and the altar, and them that worship therein. But the court which is without the temple leave out, and measure it not; for it is given unto the Gentiles: and the holy city shall they tread under foot forty and two months” (Revelation 11:1-2).
“God that made the world and all things therein, seeing that he is Lord of heaven and earth, dwelleth not in temples made with hands; Neither is worshipped with men’s hands, as though he needed anything, seeing he giveth to all life, and breath, and all things; And hath made of one blood all nations of men for to dwell on all the face of the earth, and hath determined the times before appointed, and the bounds of their habitation” (Acts 17:24-26).
“And the times of this ignorance God winked at; but now commandeth all men everywhere to repent.

“For there is one God, and one mediator between God and men, the man Christ Jesus: who gave himself a ransom for all, to be testified in due time” (1 Timothy 2:5–6).
How we spend the time our lifetime will determine where we end up on the Last Day. “For we must all appear before the judgment seat of Christ; that every one may receive the things done in his body, according to that he hath done, whether it be good or bad” (2 Corinthians 5:10).
Jesus explains says: “When the Son of man shall come in his glory, and all the holy angels with him, then shall he sit upon the throne of his glory; and before him shall be gathered all nations: and he shall separate them one from another, as a shepherd divideth his sheep from the goats; and he shall set the sheep on his right hand, but the goats on the left. Then shall the King say unto them on his right hand, ‘Come, ye blessed of my Father, inherit the kingdom prepared for you from the foundation of the world’” (Matthew 25:31–34). “Then shall he say also unto them on the left hand, depart from me, ye cursed, into everlasting fire, prepared for the Devil and his angels. And these shall go away into everlasting punishment” (Matthew 25:41, 46).
Jesus says: “Lay not up for yourselves treasures upon earth, where moth and rust doth corrupt, and where thieves break through and steal. But lay up for yourselves treasures in heaven, where neither moth nor rust doth corrupt, and where thieves do not break through nor steal. For where your treasure is, there will your heart be also” (Matthew 6:19-21).
“Keep thy heart with all diligence; for out of it are the issues of life” (Proverbs 4:23).
How often have we heard the expression the “heart of the matter” or “heart’s desire? Actually, taking everything into consideration on this earth, the heart is the center of everything.
The heart is the crucial organ for the physical body to live. So too, what is in our heart is most crucial for our soul to live.
What we eat or put into our body will affect the health of our heart; so too what is in our heart or proceeds out of our heart is a direct result of the way we live spiritually.
“The heart is deceitful above all things, and desperately wicked: who can know it?” (Jeremiah 17:9).
A healthy heart is the key to a healthy physical life. A pure heart is the key to a pure spiritual life. Keep our heart healthy and pure, and we will obtain the promise of life. God knows all our hearts and has declared through Jeremiah:
“I the LORD search the heart, I try the reins, even to give every man according to his ways, and according to the fruit of his doings” (Jeremiah 17:10). “Keep thy heart with all diligence; for out of it are the issues of life” (Proverbs 4:23).
The heart is the center of life. Every day keep our heart set on the things not seen in the heavens to one day obtain life everlasting.
“Who is he that overcometh the world, but he that believeth that Jesus is the Son of God? This is he that came by water and blood, even Jesus Christ; not by water only, but by water and blood. And it is the Spirit that beareth witness, because the Spirit is truth” (1 John 5:5–6).
