Zephaniah 3:1 KJVS
Woe to her that is filthy and polluted, to the oppressing city!
This city are those who cease being citizens of the Heavenly Jerusalem and become the filthy and polluted city that is Babylon at the Woe of the Sixth Trump ( Lamentations Chapter 1.)
Zephaniah 3:2 KJVS
“She obeyed not the voice; she received not correction; she trusted not in the Lord ; she drew not near to her God.”
At the Woe of the Sixth Trump the Harlot that make up the third who are Christians at that time, will rebel against our Heavenly Father and draw near to the man of sin who is Satan when he Sits in The Temple claiming to be Jesus Christ.
2 Thessalonians 2:1-4 KJVS
“Now we beseech you, brethren, by the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ, and by our gathering together unto him,  That ye be not soon shaken in mind, or be troubled, neither by spirit, nor by word, nor by letter as from us, as that the day of Christ is at hand.  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.”
Zephaniah 3:3 KJVS
“Her princes within her are roaring lions; her judges are evening wolves; they gnaw not the bones till the morrow.
Within her, the Harlot, which is that polluted city, her princes are roaring lions, her judges are evening wolves.
Zephaniah 3:4 KJVS
“Her prophets are light and treacherous persons: her priests have polluted the sanctuary; they have done violence to the law.”
A polluted sanctuary will be within them, void of all of Gods truth, deceived, and filled the blood of a dead man, which is Satan’s rebellious blood. The third who were Christians at that time will believe that Satan is the true Christ when he appears as the false Christ in the middle of the Five Month Long Hour of Temptation, at the Woe of the Sixth Trump. This is the great Apostacy.
The inhabitants of that City, which is Babylon at the Sixth Trump, will pass along Satan’s deception amongst themselves, and this I believe, is the giving and taking in deception, which is being with child and giving suck that Jesus spoke about in Matthew Chapter 24.
Matthew 24:19 KJVS
“And woe unto them that are with child, and to them that give suck in those days!”
Impregnated with Satan’s deception and passing it along within them, is the buying and selling of Satan’s deception when he appears as the Antichrist which is the second beast that rises out of the earth spoken about here in Revelation Chapter 13.
Revelation 13:11-18 KJVS
“And I beheld another beast coming up out of the earth; and he had two horns like a lamb, and he spake as a dragon.  And he exerciseth all the power of the first beast before him, and causeth the earth and them which dwell therein to worship the first beast, whose deadly wound was healed.  And he doeth great wonders, so that he maketh fire come down from heaven on the earth in the sight of men,  And deceiveth them that dwell on the earth by the means of those miracles which he had power to do in the sight of the beast; saying to them that dwell on the earth, that they should make an image to the beast, which had the wound by a sword, and did live.  And he had power to give life unto the image of the beast, that the image of the beast should both speak, and cause that as many as would not worship the image of the beast should be killed.  And he causeth all, both small and great, rich and poor, free and bond, to receive a mark in their right hand, or in their foreheads:  And that no man might buy or sell, save he that had the mark, or the name of the beast, or the number of his name.  Here is wisdom. Let him that hath understanding count the number of the beast: for it is the number of a man; and his number is Six hundred threescore and six.”
Receiving the Mark of deception in their foreheads is buying into Satan’s deception at the Woe of the Sixth Trump, and the Mark of of Satan’s deception in their hands is the selling of that deception amongst each other and giving it to rest of the inhabitants of the World during that time. Giving and taking, with child and giving suck.
Revelation 17:1-5 KJVS
“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.  So he carried me away in the spirit into the wilderness: and I saw a woman sit upon a scarlet coloured beast, full of names of blasphemy, having seven heads and ten horns.  And the woman was arrayed in purple and scarlet colour, and decked with gold and precious stones and pearls, having a golden cup in her hand full of abominations and filthiness of her fornication:  And upon her forehead was a name written, MYSTERY, BABYLON THE GREAT, THE MOTHER OF HARLOTS AND ABOMINATIONS OF THE EARTH.”
Mystery Babylon the great, the mother of harlots, which is the complete opposite of the Mother of us all Heavenly Jerusalem, that is from above ( Galatians Chapter 4:26 ) will be written upon the third who are Christians foreheads at the Woe of the Sixth Trump, they will have the name of a polluted City in which they become.
Upon her forehead which is in their minds, will be Satan’s deception when he appears as the second beast which is his appearance as the man of sin, the Antichrist at the Sixth Trump.
The Harlot who sits upon the beast, which is Satan, will share that abominable act of spiritual fornication, with the kings of the earth which are the two thirds of the world who are non-Christians. The act of giving and taking and buying and selling which is being with child and giving suck, is an abominable act of spiritual fornication that will be on a worldwide basis, when all mankind together lie with the beast (spiritually) which is Satan.
Going to Leviticus Chapter 20, I believe we can see on a deeper level how first this giving and taking in Satan’s deception, within that polluted City will cause the third who are Christians to be put to spiritual death at the Woe of the Sixth Trump.
Leviticus 20:10-15 KJVS
“And the man that committeth adultery with another man’s wife, even he that committeth adultery with his neighbour’s wife, the adulterer and the adulteress shall surely be put to death.  And the man that lieth with his father’s wife hath uncovered his father’s nakedness: both of them shall surely be put to death; their blood shall be upon them.  And if a man lie with his daughter in law, both of them shall surely be put to death: they have wrought confusion; their blood shall be upon them.  If a man also lie with mankind, as he lieth with a woman, both of them have committed an abomination: they shall surely be put to death; their blood shall be upon them.  And if a man take a wife and her mother, it is wickedness: they shall be burnt with fire, both he and they; that there be no wickedness among you.  And if a man lie with a beast, he shall surely be put to death: and ye shall slay the beast.”
They which are the Harlot, that filthy city, in return will share that wine if fornication with the kings of the earth which again are the two thirds of the World’s population who were never Christians.
Revelation 18:3 KJVS
“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.”
Christians are supposed to be the Light of the world, and that Light should be the Light of men which lead many to Jesus Christ (John Chapter 1 verses 1 through 5).
Matthew 5:14-16 KJVS
Ye are the light of the world. A city that is set on an hill cannot be hid.  Neither do men light a candle, and put it under a bushel, but on a candlestick; and it giveth light unto all that are in the house.  Let your light so shine before men, that they may see your good works, and glorify your Father which is in heaven.
However instead, that Light will go out of the third who are Christians in the middle of the Five Month Long Hour of Temptation at the Woe of the Sixth Trump. They will have the blood (wine of her fornication) of a dead man which is to say rebellion like they had in the First World Age and will have their part in leading the two thirds who were never Christians to the false light which is the darkness of Satan who appears as the Antichrist at the Woe of the Sixth Trump.
Revelation 18:4-7 KJVS
“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.  For her sins have reached unto heaven, and God hath remembered her iniquities.  Reward her even as she rewarded you, and double unto her double according to her works: in the cup which she hath filled fill to her double.  How much she hath glorified herself, and lived deliciously, so much torment and sorrow give her: for she saith in her heart, I sit a queen, and am no widow, and shall see no sorrow.”
Be not partakers of her sins, as I believe God was showing us what to avoid spiritually at the Woe of the Sixth Trump in Leviticus Chapter 20 verses 10 through 14.
At that time of great darkness at the Woe of the Sixth Trump, she will glorify herself, for she saith in her heart,” I sit a queen, and am no widow, and shall see no sorrow”, but as we can see in Revelation Chapter 18, she will be brought down.
Next we will look further into this city , and her exaltation, and the polluted blood in which she will share.
To be continued.
