The Book of Revelation literally describes a "Great Whore" as: "Mystery, Babylon the Great, The Mother of

Harlots and Abominations of the Earth." (Revelation 17:5)

Revelation 17:1-3
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 waters: 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.

Revelation 17:15
And he saith unto me, The waters which thou sawest, where the whore sitteth, are peoples, and multitudes, and
nations, and tongues.

Revelation 17:18
And the woman which thou sawest is that great city, which reigneth over the kings of the earth.

Therefore, the Great Whore could be summarized as this: (1) a mystery, (2) a fornicator - feminine, (3) her
throne diverse nation, nearby many bodies of waters (4) caused many people to be led astray by her
fornication, (5) leaders fornicated with her, (6) reigns over kings, (7) is a .

Another way to summarize is to state the Great Whore ( of ) sits (is LOCATED) in the
United States (DIVERSE NATION, LOCATED NEAR MANY WATERS Atlantic, Pacific, Gulf of Mexico,
Great Lakes, etc.) and fornicates (SPIRITUALLY/IDOLATRY and FORNICATION/ADULTRY
ENTERTAINMENT INDUSTRY) with the leaders (PRESIDENTS and CONGRESS etc.) and with
the people (THROUGH MEDIA).

Face it! The Whore of Babylon is . But the fact she sits on the United States reveals the
nation of the United States will because of this prophesied ("burn with fire" reference)
about to be unleashed on .

Even as I write this I lament for her. Hollywood will be ?!? I wish I could detoxify myself from the
effects of Hollywood. Is "Mystery Babylon" -- because we all were blind to the fact that a few
rich controlled Hollywood and our elected leaders? How else has television, motion pictures, interactive
games, and recorded music controlled our lives?

This paper is not intended to be an all inclusive study of or the Book of Revelation, but did you
know the original name of Los Angeles is "El Pueblo de la Reina de Los Angeles (The Town of the Queen of
the Angels), see reference a.

Los Angeles is the largest city in the state of California and the second largest in the United States, see
reference b. Los Angeles County is the most populated and one of the most diverse counties in the United
States. Los Angeles is a global city, see reference d. There's three nearby military bases, one includes a
spaceport and another houses missile command, see reference e. The sea ports of Los Angeles and Long
Beach create the busiest and profitable U.S. harbor complex for international shipping, the gateway to Asian
trade, see reference f. Los Angeles is a city founded upon seven hills (reference unavailable).

Also note the relationship between idolatry and adultery (fornication). Both the bride is not loyal to
husband. So the Great Whore uses fornication to lead astray many people from serving the Creator.

CONCLUSION

Revelation 18:2
And he cried mightily with a strong voice, saying, Babylon the great is fallen, is fallen, and is become the
habitation of devils, and the hold of every foul spirit, and a cage of every unclean and hateful bird. For all
nations have drunk of the wine of the wrath of her fornication, and the kings of the earth have committed
fornication with her, and the merchants of the earth are waxed rich through the abundance of her delicacies.
And I heard another voice from heaven, saying, Come out of her, my people, that ye be not partakers of her
sins, and that ye receive not of her plagues.

"Come out of her" means to Los Angeles! Hollywood is lost.

Now, some people reading this article probably disagree that the United States is where the Great Whore sits. I
prefer this interpretation because of John Winthrop's "City Upon A Hill" sermon in 1630 (see reference g)
which the New World spiritually symbolizes the New Jerusalem, of which the name Salem, Massachusetts is
derived. Also, America represented for many Jews escaping the Holocaust a place for family to flourish while
in Diaspora.

The Book of Revelation is about renewal. The impurities are removed like refining silver in a fire. I wonder,
does the Creator operate from the notion "Order Out of Chaos"? This topic also reminds me of the song
entitled "Californication" by the Red Hot Chili Peppers.

Destruction leads to a very rough road


But it also breeds creation

According to the Book of Revelation, it is the Creator's will that these judgments happen as prophesied. With
each passing judgment, we have an opportunity to return to the Source, the One, Ever Patient, Creator.
