The Whore of Babylon. 

  
The whore of Babylon is not some united political alliance of super power. It’s the alliance between pre-AD70 Jerusalem and Rome. 
It’s simple really. It happened here. 

Note what Jesus said here. 
Matthew 22:21
They said, “Caesar’s.” Then he said to them, “Therefore render to Caesar the things that are Caesar’s, and to God the things that are God’s.”

Then look at what happened here. 
Luke 23:2-3
And they began to accuse him, saying, “We found this man misleading our nation and forbidding us to give tribute to Caesar, and saying that he himself is Christ, a king.”

And Pilate asked him, “Are you the King of the Jews?” And he answered him, “You have said so.”

Then finally this what the leaders of Israel did. 
John 19:15
They cried out, “Away with him, away with him, crucify him!” Pilate said to them, “Shall I crucify your King?” The chief priests answered, “We have no king but Caesar.”

In all these 3 passages, Jerusalem was asked to chose between Christ and Caesar (Rome). They chose Caesar and totally denied Christ. 

I have written a few weeks back a note about how pre-AD70 Jerusalem paid God 30 pieces of silver to buy God out of their covenant with God. The price of a wounded slave. 

Jerusalem paid Judas 30 pieces of silver and bought themselves out from God’s relationship with them. It was the ultimate denial of their husband. 

By saying “We have no king except Caesar”, she abandoned their husband and chose adultery with her new lover Rome. 

That is how pre-AD70 Jerusalem lost her status as the bride of God and became a whore. 

That was why God began to prepare a new people. Neither Jew or Gentile. A people who would become the temple. A people who are born out of Christ. A new Jerusalem. 

The pre-AD70 Jerusalem was then judged and then destroyed in AD70. 

Romans 7 tells us how when we die we would be free from our 1st husband and be freed to be married to Christ. Jesus death provided this separation from the Law for the Jews. 

That was how the new Jerusalem came to be. The new glorious bride of Christ. 

It has already happened. 

When we tell people that this whore is some union of European nations, you are robbed of the identity of who you are and what you ALREADY possessed. It’s not far away in the future. 

You already possess the full rights and access to the new Jerusalem. You already possess your full inheritance as the new Bride.

That’s why we tell you the book of Revelation is about events in the past.
