And upon her forehead was a name written, MYSTERY,
BABYLON THE GREAT, THE MOTHER OF HARLOTS
AND ABOMINATIONS OF THE EARTH.
- A mystery in Scripture is a previously hidden truth, now
divinely revealed... (Scofield)
- Babylon: The most corrupt seat of idolatry and the enemy
of Christianity. (Thayer's Lexicon)
- Harlot: One who yields herself to defilement... whether for
gain or lust; a fornicator... (Thayer's Lexicon)
Combine the three... then, what is Mystery Babylon?
