Who is the Great Harlot? (CW20)

   World War 3 is at Hand

Early Christianity
Acts 20:29  For I know this, that after my departure savage wolves will come in among you, not sparing the flock.
    After the death of Paul (62-67 AD) and during the 2nd and 3rd Century AD, the Christian church faced many heresies.
    As soon as Christianity was legalized in the Roman Empire (4th Century AD), the councils of bishops had produced the following:
1. the Apostles Creed
2. the Septuagint, the Greek version of the OT
3. 27 canon books of the New Testament in original Greek.
Thank God that He has given us the Christian creed and His pure word (bible).

Roman Catholic Church
   Rome was the centre of Christianity after the destruction of Jerusalem. The church witnessed the conversion of nearly the entire Europe to Christianity. Sadly, heresies and the worship of Mary defiled the Catholic Church. The Pope then reigned over Christian kings during the period of Inquisition, where many churches were serving Satan (scarlet beast) with idolatry.
    Today, the Pope no longer controls the world. In his stead, the US has replaced Rome with its wealth and power.

The Great Harlot
Rev 17:3  So he carried me away in the Spirit into the wilderness. And I saw a woman sitting on a scarlet beast which was full of names of blasphemy, having seven heads and ten horns.
     This harlot sits (led and guided) on the beast with seven heads and ten horns (Satan or Antichrist). In the last Century and up to the 1980s, US was the champion of Christianity with the greatest budgets and number of missionaries sent out.
    After US President Kennedy took the Bible out from the schools thereby rejecting theocracy for US, demonic laws, lies and worldly wisdom infiltrated into the administration and the churches.
    US became arrogant and wanted to become the richest and most powerful nation in order to dictate UN and the whole world.
    Heresies abound with 'Secret Rapture' of Darby the Dispensationalist, being popularised in the 1970s from books and films of 'the Great Planet Earth', 'Left Behind', etc.  
    Wrong doctrines such as 'Prosperity Gospel' and 'Once saved always saved' also flourished. These heresies from US were exported to the rest of the world, thereby destroying the faith of Christians in Jesus and truth in His words.

Rev 17:4  The woman was arrayed in purple and scarlet, and adorned with gold and precious stones and pearls, having in her hand a golden cup full of abominations and the filthiness of her fornication.
    This harlot is the most powerful nation, the king of the world (purple). She has shed much blood (scarlet). She is extremely rich and prosperous (gold and precious stones). Her handouts or helps are filled with abominations.
    Since the 1980s, US has become the richest and most powerful nation that even UN submit to her. Countries supporting US will obtain financial helps but countries opposing its policies may face the wrath of US with sanctions or bombs.
    Since the 1990s, US had victimised, attacked and ruined Iraq, Libya, Syria, Afghanistan, etc. It had also sponsored civil uprisings to bring down regimes of many nations, meanwhile shedding much innocent blood.
    After President Obama legalised homosexuality and same sex marriages in 2000s, UN Human Rights was used to force these abominations on all nations, causing many to hate US (darkness and no longer the light to the world) and sending many unlearned and weak Christians to damnation.

   Isn't US the great Harlot?
