Context Readings

The Judgment Of The Great Prostitute Babylon

7 And the angel said unto me, Why didst thou marvel? I will tell thee the mystery of the woman and of the beast that carries her, which has the seven heads and ten horns. 8 The beast that you saw was, and is not, and is about to come up out of the abyss and go to destruction. And those who dwell on the earth, whose name has not been written in the book of life from the foundation of the world, will wonder when they see the beast, that he was and is not and will come. 9 And here is the meaning which has wisdom. The seven heads are seven mountains, on which the woman sits.
