The culmination of Israel's Harlotry came with the murdering of Christ by the Sabbath Keepers in their self-righteous pretended holiness claiming to keep the law while they murdered the Messiah, Christ himself and the Apostles after them. Well said CHRIST TO THE SABBATH KEEPERS!!!

23 :32 Fill ye up then THE MEASURE OF YOUR FATHERS, 23 :33 Ye serpents, ye generation of vipers, how can ye escape the damnation of hell?

23 :34 Wherefore, behold, I send unto you prophets, and wise men , and scribes: and some of them ye shall kill and crucify; and. some of them shall ye scourge in your synagogues, and persecute them from city to city : (Rev. 17vs 6)

[COMPARE WITH Rev. 18:24 And in her was found the blood of prophets, and of saints , and of all that were slain upon the earth. ]

23 :35 That upon YOU may come ALL THE RIGHTEOUS BLOOD SHED UPON THE EARTH ,from the BLOOD OF RIGHTEOUS ABEL unto the blood of Zacharias son of Barachias, whom ye slew between the temple and the altar. 

[COMPARE WITH Rev. 18:24 And in her was found the blood of prophets, and of saints , and of all that were slain upon the earth. And Rev. 18:20 Rejoice over her, thou heaven, and ye holy apostles and prophets; for God hath avenged you on her. Revelation]

Jesus Christ himself in person and the Apostles themselves, couldn't get these hard hearted Sabbath Keepers to repent !

NOW, IF YOU SABBATH KEEPERS WANT TO RETURN TO YOUR HEBREW ROOTS, YOU ARE WELL ON YOUR WAY ATTACKING CHRISTIANS AND THE CHURCH (the BODY OF) CHRIST HIMSELF.

THAT Israel/ Jerusalem (home of the Sabbath keepers) is the HARLOT OF REVELATION!

17:1 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:
17:2 With whom the kings of the earth have committed fornication (#6, #7 above) , and the inhabitants of the earth have been made drunk with the wine of her fornication (EZEK 16 VS 15) .
17:3 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.
17:4 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 (#6 & #7 above) :
17:5 And upon her forehead was a name written, MYSTERY, BABYLON THE GREAT, THE MOTHER OF HARLOTS AND ABOMINATIONS OF THE EARTH.17:6 And I saw the woman drunken with the blood of the saints, and with the blood of the martyrs of Jesus : and when I saw her, I wondered with great admiration. Revelation.

PAGE AFTER PAGE OF THE NEW TESTAMENT IS FILLED WITH SABBATH KEEPERS GUILTY WITH THE BLOOD AND MARTYING THE SAINTS. Christ said that these Sabbath keepers were guilty of ALL OF THE RIGHTEOUS BLOOD OF EVERY SINGLE PERSON IN THE OLD TESTAMENT!
After murdering Christ, the Sabbath keepers soon went after the Body of Christ his church.

Notice these examples:

1THES4 vs 16 THE SABBATH KEEPERS FORBID THE APOSTLES TO PREACH TO THE GENTILES TO BE SAVED to fill up their sins alway: for the wrath is come upon them to the uttermost

1Thes 4 verse 14For ye, brethren, became followers of the churches of God which in Judaea are in Christ Jesus: for ye also have suffered like things of your own countrymen, even as they have of the Jews (the Sabbath Keepers) 15 *Who both KILLED the Lord Jesus, and KILLED their own prophets, and have PERSECUTED us; and they PLEASE not God, and are CONTRARY to all men:

[COMPARE WITH Rev. 18:24 And in her was found the blood of prophets, and of saints , and of all that were slain upon the earth. And Rev. 18:20 Rejoice over her, thou heaven, and ye holy apostles and prophets; for God hath avenged you on her. Revelation]


LUKE 18: The Sabbath Keepers trusted in themselves that they were righteous, and despised others:

John 5 vs 18 The Sabbath Keepers seek to kill Christ over the Sabbath. BECAUSE CHRIST SAID HE WORKS EVERY SABBATH DAY!

Verse 16: The Sabbath Keepers “ persecute Jesus and sought to slay him OVER THE SABBATH.

John 8 vs 52 THE SABBATH KEEPERS SAY CHIRST HAS A DEVIL!

John 9 vs 22 THE SABBATH KEEPERS AGREE THAT IF ANY MAN CONFESSES CHRIST HE SHOULD BE PUT OUT THE SYNAGOGUE.

Jesus Christ himself in person and the Apostles themselves, couldn't get these hard hearted Sabbath Keepers to repent !

It was those of the Old Covenant that were persecuting the Christ, the apostles , Prophets and Christians, JUST AS It is Today, by the SDA Read the following and see what I mean!

ACTS 7 vs 54 THE SABBATH KEEPER GNASH THEIR TEETH ON ST. STEPHEN AND THEN STONE HIM TO DEATH.

[COMPARE WITH Rev. 18:24 And in her was found the blood of prophets, and of saints , and of all that were slain upon the earth.]

ACTS 12 vs 12 THE SABBATH KEEPERS KILL JAMES THE BROTHER OF JOHN WITH A SWORD AND THEN TRY TO KILL PETER TOO.

[COMPARE WITH Rev. 18:24 And in her was found the blood of prophets, and of saints , and of all that were slain upon the earth. And Rev. 18:20 Rejoice over her, thou heaven, and ye holy apostles and prophets; for God hath avenged you on her. Revelation]

ACTS 13 vs 45 THE SABBATH KEEPERS ARE FILLED WITH ENVY ! THE SABBATH KEEPERS CONTRADICT THE APOSTLE PAUL AND BLASPHEME ”!

ACTS 13 vs 50 THE SABBATH KEEPERS STIRRED up the devout and honourable women, and the chief men of the city, and raised PERSECUTION against Paul and Barnabas, and expelled them out of their coasts.

ACTS 17 vs 5 THE SABBATH KEEPERS moved with envy took unto them certain lewd fellows of the baser sort, and gathered a company, and set all the city on an uproar, and assaulted the house of Jason

ACTS 23 vs 12 Sabbath Keepers banded together, and bound themselves under a curse, saying that they would NEITHER TO EAT OR DRINK UNTIL THE KILLED THE APOSTLE PAUL !!!

ACTS 23 vs 21 SABBATH KEEPERS 40 OF THEM LIE IN WAIT TO MURDER THE APOSTLE PAUL.

ACTS 28 vs 27 THE SABBATH KEEPERS ARE SCOLDED BY THE APOSTLE PAUL “27 For the heart of this people is waxed gross, and their ears are dull of hearing, and their eyes have they closed; lest they should see with their eyes, and hear with their ears, and understand with their heart, and should be converted, and I should heal them

2COR. 11 versesv24-25 PAUL SAYS 5 Times HE WAS BEATEN WITH 39 STRIPES FROM THE SABBATH KEEPERS

AND 3 TIMES THE SABBATH KEEPERS BEAT HIM WITH RODS

AND 3 TIMES HE WAS STONED BY THE SABBATH KEEPERS.

ACTS 15 vs 24 THE SABBATH KEEPERS ARE GUILTY OF SUBVERTING THE SOULS OF THE CHURCH MEMBERS AND PREACHING THE GENTILES MUST KEEP THE LAW !

ACTS 21 vs 20 THE SABBATH KEEPERS “ DREW PAUL OUT OF TEMPLE AND WENT ABOUT TO KILL HIM”.

[COMPARE WITH Rev. 18:24 And in her was found the blood of prophets, and of saints , and of all that were slain upon the earth. And Rev. 18:20 Rejoice over her, thou heaven, and ye holy apostles and prophets; for God hath avenged you on her. Revelation]

The great harlot is the "*great city* ". The " great city " is Jerusalem.

Rev 17vs18 And the woman which thou sawest is that great city, which reigneth over the kings of the earth.
Revelation, earlier, tells us which city is THE GREAT CITY it is Jerusalem.

Rev 11vs8 And* their dead bodies shall lie in the street of the great city* , which spiritually is called Sodom and Egypt, where also our Lord was crucified.
The Lord was crucified in Jerusalem, the great city,* which is the great harlot.

Babylon, as a name for Jerusalem, is not unlike the comparison to other cities, such as as Sodom, Egypt, and Gomorrah; "spiritually is called Sodom and Egypt" Rev 11vs8. (Isaiah 1vs10; Jer. 23vs14, Ezek. 16vs44-56 all compare Jerusalem to Sodom. (also, Jesus in various NT scriptures, compared various Israelite cities to Sodom and Gomorrah by comparing judgment), Luke 10vs12, Mark 6vs11, Matthew 11vs23-24, Matthew 10vs15.)

NOW, IF YOU SABBATH KEEPERS WANT TO RETURN TO YOUR HEBREW ROOTS, YOU ARE WELL ON YOUR WAY ATTACKING CHRISTIANS AND THE CHURCH (the BODY OF) CHRIST HIMSELF.

If you so insist on your cult persecuting Christians, who aren't Jewish enough for you Sabbath keepers and speaking all manner of evil against us Christians, then I repeat the words of Christ to the Sabbath keepers,

Matt 23 :32 Fill ye up then THE MEASURE OF YOUR FATHERS, 23 :33 Ye serpents, ye generation of vipers, how can ye escape the damnation of hell?

BUT, For those who wish to be saved, I repeat the words of the Apostle John from Revelation
18:4 And I heard another voice from heaven, saying, Come out of her* (the old covenant Israel) , my people, that ye be not partakers of her sins, and that ye receive not of her plagues.*
18:5 For her sins have reached unto heaven, and God hath remembered her iniquities.
18:6 Reward her (the HARLOT, THOSE OF THE OLD COVENANT) 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.

JERUSALEM THE HARLOT
THE HOME OF THE SABBATH KEEPERS

I will briefly cover several of the best scriptural proofs, and then spend time discussing implications and conclusions.
Summary of proofs
1. Jerusalem kills the prophets and saints.
2. Jerusalem is the "*great city*" where Jesus was killed.
3. Jerusalem sits on 7 mountains.
4 Jerusalem is described as a whore in the Bible.
5. Jerusalem's priests wore purple, red, precious stones, and gold.
6.. Jerusalem drinks the cup of wrath.
7. Jerusalem's lovers, the kings of the earth, turn on her to destroy her.

PROOF #1
The Sabbath keeping Pharisees of Jerusalem killed Stephen who was the first of "the martyrs of Jesus". Any other interpretation of who the woman is, if it does not include the Sabbath Keeping Jewish religious leaders in the time of Jesus, including the Jewish religious leaders who killed the Old Testament prophets (Rev 18vs24), is therefore incorrect. Read the parable below in Mt. 21vs33-44
Matthew 21vs 33-44 (KJV)
33 Hear another parable There was a certain householder, which planted a vineyard, and hedged it round about, and digged a winepress in it, and built a tower, and let it out to husbandmen, and went into a far country:
34 And when the time of the fruit drew near, he sent his servants to the husbandmen, that they might receive the fruits of it.
35 And the husbandmen took his servants, and beat one, and killed another, and stoned another.
36 Again, he sent other servants more than the first: and they did unto them likewise.
37 But last of all he sent unto them his son, saying, They will reverence my son.
38 But when the husbandmen saw the son, they said among themselves, This is the heir; come, let us kill him, and let us seize on his inheritance .
39 And they caught him, and cast him out of the vineyard, and slew him.
40 When the lord therefore of the vineyard cometh, what will he do unto those husbandmen?
41 They say unto him, He will miserably destroy those wicked men, and will let out his vineyard unto other husbandmen, which shall render him the fruits in their seasons.
42 Jesus saith unto them, Did ye never read in the scriptures, *The stone which the builders rejected, the same is become the head of the corner: *this is the Lord's doing, and it is marvelous in our eyes?
43 THEREFORE SAY I UNTO YOU, THE KINGDOM OF GOD SHALL BE TAKEN FROM YOU, AND GIVEN TO A NATION BRINGING FORTH THE FRUITS THEREOF.
44 And whosoever shall fall on this stone shall be broken but on whomsoever it shall fall, it will grind him to powder.

Rev 17vs 6 And I saw the woman drunken with the blood of the saints, and with the blood of the martyrs of Jesus and when I saw HER, I wondered with great admiration.
Rev 18vs 20 Rejoice over her, thou heaven, and ye holy apostles and prophets; for God hath avenged you on her.
Rev 18vs 24 And in her was found the blood of prophets, and of saints, and of all that were slain upon the earth *COMPARE WITH MATT 23 VS 31-34

Stephen, the first Christian martyr, fingers the council at Jerusalem as the murderers of the prophets, and they were so angry they killed Stephen, too:
Act 7vs 52 Which of the prophets have not your fathers persecuted? and they have slain them which shewed before of the coming of the Just One; of whom ye have been now the betrayers and murderersvs
Jesus speaks harsh words to the leaders of Jerusalem, saying they are worse than harlots, and also says that* " *JERUSALEM KILLS THE PROPHETS"vs
Mat 21vs 31 "...Verily I say unto you, That the publicans and the harlots go into the kingdom of God before you.
Mat 21vs 32 For John came unto you in the way of righteousness, and ye believed him not but the publicans and the harlots believed him and ye, when ye had seen it, repented not afterward, that ye might believe him.
Mat 23vs 29 Woe unto you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites! because ye build the tombs of the prophets, and garnish the sepulchres of the righteous,
Mat 23vs 30 And say, If we had been in the days of our fathers, we would not have been partakers with them in the blood of the prophets.
Mat 23vs 31 Wherefore ye be witnesses unto yourselves, that ye are the children of them which killed the prophets.
Mat 23vs 32 Fill ye up then the measure of your fathers.
Mat 23vs33 Ye serpents, ye generation of vipers, how can ye escape the damnation of hell?
Mat 23vs34 Wherefore, behold, I send unto you prophets, and wise men, and scribes and some of them ye shall kill and crucify; and some of them shall ye scourge in your synagogues, and persecute them from city to city
Mat 23vs35 That upon you may come all the righteous blood shed upon the earth, from the blood of righteous Abel unto the blood of Zacharias son of Barachias, whom ye slew between the temple and the altar
Mat 23vs36 Verily I say unto you, All these things shall come upon this generation.
Mat 23vs37 O Jerusalem, Jerusalem, thou that killest the prophets, and stonest them which are sent unto thee how often would I have gathered thy children together, even as a hen gathereth her chickens under her wings, and ye would not!
Mat 23vs38 Behold, your house is left unto you desolate.
Mat 23vs39 For I say unto you, Ye shall not see me henceforth, till ye shall say, Blessed is he that cometh in the name of the Lord.
Luk 13vs31 The same day there came certain of the Pharisees, saying unto him, Get thee out, and depart hencevs for Herod will kill thee.
Luk 13vs32 And he said unto them, Go ye, and tell that fox, Behold, I cast out devils, and I do cures to day and to morrow, and the third day I shall be perfected.
Luk 13vs33 Nevertheless I must walk to day, and tomorrow, and the day following FOR IT CANNOT BE THAT A PROPHET PERISH OUT OF JERUSALEM”.
Luk 13vs34 O Jerusalem, Jerusalem, which killest the prophets, and stonest them that are sent unto thee; how often would I have gathered thy children together, as a hen doth gather her brood under her wings, and ye would not!
Luk 13vs35 Behold, your house is left unto you desolate and verily I say unto you, Ye shall not see me, until the time come when ye shall say, Blessed is he that cometh in the name of the Lord.

PROOF #2.
The great harlot is the "*great city* ". The " great city " is Jerusalem.
Rev 17vs18 And the woman which thou sawest is that great city, which reigneth over the kings of the earth.
Revelation, earlier, tells us which city is THE GREAT CITY it is Jerusalem.
Rev 11vs8 And* their dead bodies shall lie in the street of the great city* , which spiritually is called Sodom and Egypt, where also our Lord was crucified.
The Lord was crucified in Jerusalem, the great city,* which is the great harlot*.
Babylon, as a name for Jerusalem, is not unlike the comparison to other cities, such as as Sodom, Egypt, and Gomorrah; "spiritually is called Sodom and Egypt" Rev 11vs8. (Isaiah 1vs10; Jer. 23vs14, Ezek. 16vs44-56 all compare Jerusalem to Sodom. (also, Jesus in various NT scriptures, compared various Israelite cities to Sodom and Gomorrah by comparing judgment), Luke 10vs12, Mark 6vs11, Matthew 11vs23-24, Matthew 10vs15.)

PROOF #3
As the woman sits on seven mountains, Jerusalem is built on seven mountains
Rev 17vs9 And here is the mind which hath wisdom. The seven heads are seven mountains, on which the woman sitteth.
From httpvs//www.kensmen.com/catholic/endtimes.html ,
Mt. Goath, Mt. Gareb, Mt. Acra, Mt. Bezetha, Mt. Zion, Mt. Ophel, and Mt. Moriah.
A second source, httpvs//www.angelfire.com/pr/truth/whore.html , lists the samevs Mount Zion, Mount Ophel, Mount Moriah, Mount Bezetha, Mount Acra, Mount Gareb, and Mount Goath.
A third confirming source, httpvs//jesus-messiah.com/prophecy/rev-13.html , lists the same seven, and explains a bit more of why some authors list different mountains, and includes a mapvs "The seven hills identify Jerusalem not Romevs Jerusalem was a large city spreading outside the walls and covering the seven hills there during the time of Jesus and the Apostlesvs 1.) Mount Gared; 2.) Mount Goath; 3.) Mount Acra; 4.) Mount Bezetha; 5.) Mount Moriah; 6.) Mount Ophel; 7.) Mount Zion. For what ever reason, and by what ever hands and manipulation, Mt. Gared, Mt. Goath, Mt Acra, and Mt. Bezetha have been deleted from nearly all maps of Jerusalem."
httpvs//www.unlimitedglory.org/txtrevcha4.htm "look at any old map showing the topography of Jerusalem immediately prior to 70 AD. In so doing I believe that you will find that the 7 hills of Moriah, Ophel, Zion, Bezetha, Golgotha,
Bareb and Offence are all or partially located within the confines of Jerusalem as it existed at that time."
I could not find Mt. Acra or Mt. Bezetha in scripture, but five others I could. Gareb & Goath in Jeremiah 31vs39, Ophel in 2 Chronicles 33vs14, Moriah in 2 Chronicles 3vs1 and Zion yielded 153 occurrences.
Jeremiah 31vs39 And the measuring line shall yet go forth over against it upon the hill Gareb, and shall compass about to Goath.
2 Chron 33vs14 Now after this he built a wall without the city of David, on the west side of Gihon, in the valley, even to the entering in at the fish gate, and compassed about Ophel, and raised it up a very great height, and put captains of war in all the fenced cities of Judah.
2 Chron 3vs1 Then Solomon began to build the house of the LORD at Jerusalem in mount Moriah, where the Lord appeared unto David his father, in the place that David had prepared in the threshingfloor of Ornan the Jebusite.
The two mountains not found in scripture, Mt. Acra and Mt. Bezetha, are both mentioned in the Jewish Encyclopedia under the listing for"Jerusalem"vs httpvs//www.jewishencyclopedia.com/view.jsp?artid=242&letter=J
Here is a Psalm about the mountains around Jerusalem, "As the mountains are round about Jerusalem, so the LORD is round about his people from henceforth even for ever." {Psalms 125vs2)
The word in Rev 17vs9 is clearly mountains, not hills.
3735 oros {or'-os}
probably from an obsolete oro (to rise or "rear", perhaps akin to 142, cf 3733); TDNT - 5vs475,732; n n
AV - mountain 41, mount 21, hill 3; 65
1) a mountain
There is a word for hills in the Greek language, even used in the New Testament, a word that John was aware of, and could have used, if he meant to say hills.
Luke 23vs30 Then shall they begin to say to the mountains, Fall on us; and to the hills, Cover us.
1015 bounos {boo-nos'}
probably of foreign origin;; n m
AV - hill 2; 2
1) a hill, eminence, mound
Therefore, the interpretation that the woman is Rome, a city on seven hills, is not fitting with scripture nearly as much as the interpretation that the woman is Jerusalem, a city on seven mountains.
I suppose it is possible that the seven mountains have another symbolic meaning; in addition to literal mountains or kings. That the seven mountains are the seven continents of the earth North and South America, Europe, Africa, Asia, Australia, and Antarctica, which would mean that the woman sits on and rules the entire earth. After all, the whore is also said to sit on many waters, which are the people, and multitude and nations of the earth.
Rev 17vs1 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 watersvs
Rev 17vs15 And he saith unto me, The waters which thou sawest, where the whore sitteth, are peoples, and multitudes, and nations, and tongues.
______________________________________

PROOF #4
Rev 17vs5 And upon her forehead was a name written, MYSTERY, BABYLON THE GREAT, THE MOTHER OF HARLOTS AND ABOMINATIONS OF THE EARTH.
Israel is described as a harlot in many texts of the Hebrew Scriptures Isa. 1vs21, Ezek 16, 23, Isaiah 57, Jeremiah 2-3 and Hosea 2

Isaiah 47 is a striking parallel passage, with 3 key elements repeatedvs She calls herself a queen, not a widow, and will see her destruction in one day.

Isaiah 47vs7 You said, 'I will continue forever— the eternal queen! ' But you did not consider these things or reflect on what might happen. 8 "Now then, listen, you wanton creature, lounging in your security and saying to yourself, 'I am, and there is none besides me. I will never be a widow or suffer the loss of children.' 9 Both of these will overtake you in a moment, on a single day loss of children and widowhood. They will come upon you in full measure, in spite of your many sorceries and all your potent spells.

Revelation 18vs7 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. 8 Therefore shall her plagues come in one day, death, and mourning, and famine; and she shall be utterly burned with fire for strong is the Lord God who judgeth her.

PROOF #5
The woman is wearing red and purple, with a cup of gold in hand. The Israelite priests wear red and purple, and used cups of gold in the temple worship.
Rev 17vs4 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 fornicationvs
Rev 18vs16 And saying, Alas, alas that great city, that was clothed in fine linen, and purple, and scarlet, and decked with gold, and precious stones, and pearls!
God commanded that the priests' vestments be made with purple and scarlet yarn (Ex. 28vs4-8, 15, 33, 39vs1-8, 24, 29).
Exodus 25vs29 And thou shalt make the dishes thereof, and spoons thereof, and covers thereof, and bowls thereof, to cover withal: of pure gold shalt thou make them.
Dan 5vs2 Belshazzar, whiles he tasted the wine, commanded to bring the golden and silver vessels which his father Nebuchadnezzar had taken out of the temple which was in Jerusalem; that the king, and his princes, his wives, and his concubines, might drink therein.
Dan 5vs3 Then they brought the golden vessels that were taken out of the temple of the house of God which was at Jerusalem; and the king, and his princes, his wives, and his concubines, drank in them.
______________________________________
PROOF #6
The woman also drinks the cup of wrath.
Rev 18vs3 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.
Isai 51vs17 Rouse yourself! Rouse yourself! Arise, O Jerusalem, You who have drunk from the Lord's hand the cup of His anger ; The chalice of reeling you have drained to the dregs .
Rev 14vs8 And there followed another angel, saying, Babylon is fallen, is fallen, that great city, because she made all nations drink of the wine of the wrath of her fornication.
Rev 14vs9 And the third angel followed them, saying with a loud voice, If any man worship the beast and his image, and receive his mark in his forehead, or in his hand,
Rev 14vs10 The same shall drink of the wine of the wrath of God, which is poured out without mixture into the cup of his indignation ; and he shall be tormented with fire and brimstone in the presence of the holy angels, and in the presence of the Lamb
______________________________________

PROOF #7
The kings of the earth (the horns of the beast) (Rev 17vs12), who the woman rules (Rev 17vs18), will turn on the woman and destroy her. Ezekiel, in chapter 16, and Jeremiah chapter 4, say the same thing about Jerusalem and Israel.

Rev 17vs16 And the ten horns which thou sawest upon the beast, these shall hate the whore, and shall make her desolate and naked, and shall eat her flesh, and burn her with fire.
Eze 16vs1 Again the word of the LORD came unto me, saying,
Eze 16vs2 Son of man, cause Jerusalem to know her abominations, ...
Eze 16vs37 Behold, therefore I will gather all thy lovers, with whom thou hast taken pleasure, and all them that thou hast loved, with all them that thou hast hated; I will even gather them round about against thee, and will discover thy nakedness unto them, that they may see all thy nakedness.
Eze 16vs38 And I will judge thee, as women that break wedlock and shed blood are judged; and I will give thee blood in fury and jealousy.
Eze 16vs39 And I will also give thee into their hand, and they shall throw down thine eminent place, and shall break down thy high placesvs they shall strip thee also of thy clothes, and shall take thy fair jewels, and leave thee naked and bare.
Eze 16vs40 They shall also bring up a company against thee, and they shall stone thee with stones, and thrust thee through with their swords.
Eze 16vs41 And they shall burn thine houses with fire, and execute judgments upon thee in the sight of many women: and I will cause thee to cease from playing the harlot, and thou also shalt give no hire any more.
Jer 4vs1 If thou wilt return, O Israel, saith the LORD, return unto mevs and if thou wilt put away thine abominations out of my sight, then shalt thou not remove. ...
Jer 4vs30 And when thou art spoiled, what wilt thou do? Though thou clothest thyself with crimson, though thou deckest thee with ornaments of gold, though thou rentest thy face with painting, in vain shalt thou make thyself fair; thy lovers will despise thee, they will seek thy life.
Jer 4vs31 For I have heard a voice as of a woman in travail, and the anguish as of her that bringeth forth her first child, the voice of the daughter of Zion, that bewaileth herself, that spreadeth her hands, saying, Woe is me now! for my soul is wearied because of murderers.

WHY THE CHURCH OF ROME CANNOT BE THE HARLOT – BECAUSE BOTH GOD AND THE APOSTLES LOVED AND PRAISED THE CHURCH OF ROME.
1 The Church of Rome's faith was "spoken of throughout the whole world". Rom.1vs8
2. GOD IS HIS WITNESS Paul PRAYED WITHOUT CEASING for the CHURCH OF ROME Rom. 1vs9
3. Paul extended 'GRACE & PEACE" FROM GOD to the Church of Rome. (vs 7)
4. Paul thanked God for the Church of Rome (vs. 8)
5. Paul prophesied, THE GOD OF PEACE WILL CRUSH SATAN UNDER THE CHURCH OF ROME’S FEET” Rom.16vs20
THERE IS NO CHANCE THAT THE CHURCH OF ROME CAN FALL AWAY! THE PROMISE FROM CHRIST AND FROM THE APOSTLE PAUL UNDER THE INSPIRATION OF THE HOLY SPIRIT IS THAT GOD IS GOING TO CRUSH THE ENEMIES UNDER THE FOOT OF THE CHURCH OF ROME . ROMANS 16vs20
Polycarp, the Bishop of Symrna, who was taught at the feet of the Apostle John (Rev.2) the most faithful church writes in 117 AD, "The Church of God which sojourns at Smyrna, to the Church of God sojourning in Philomelium,1 and to all the congregations2 of THE HOLY AND CATHOLIC CHURCH IN EVERY PLACEvs Mercy, peace, and love from God the Father, and our Lord Jesus Christ, be multiplied."

2. The Apostle Paul says tovs "HOLD FAST AND STAND FAST in the TRADITIONS either by word or by letter of the church". 2Thes.3vs15.

Secondly, Paul has said that the THE CHURCH is the Pillar and foundation of truth in 1Tim 3vs15,


Why don't the Sabbath Keepers go preach Sabbathkeeping to the Muslims??  I can't wait to see the answer

The Lord gave the church commandments to keep with all seriousness and DIRE warning. All those who deliberately refuse to obey Christ's commandments to hear and obey his church will be cast into hell

Christ's Test commandments are to hear and OBEY his church and to Love the members of Christ’s own body, the church .

Christ commanded with all authority to ALL Nations to hear AND Obey the church That is scripture! And, it comes with the most dire warning.

Matt 18 verse17 And if he shall neglect to hear them, tell it unto the church BUT, IF he shall neglect to hear the church Let him be unto thee as an heathen (A PAGAN ) man and a publican (AN UNSAVED SINNER )

Then Christ explicitly gives the absolute authority to his church
18: 18 Verily I say unto you, Whatsoever ye shall bind on earth shall be bound in heaven: and whatsoever ye shall loose on earth shall be loosed in heaven It is this very authority that the cults abhor
Rebellion is as the sin of witchcraft

Therefore, Christ does not accept your Sabbath keeping


10 UNDENIABLE BIBLICAL REASONS WHY CHRISTIANS DON’T KEEP THE SABBATH

EVEN The Holy Spirit tells the Adventists TO SHUT UP!

ROM 3: 19 Now we know that what things soever the law saith, it saith to them who are under the law: that EVERY MOUTH may be STOPPED, and all the world may become GUILTY before God

The Adventist teaching is that Gentiles have to become Jewish in order to be Christian. I know, it makes my brain hurt too.  So, they teach that Arabs are obligated to be Jewish.  The truth is the Gentile nations were NEVER obligated to keep the Sabbath of the Jews.  God made the Sabbath as sign of DISCTINCTION so the Gentiles would know the JEW FROM THE GENTILE.  So, let’s get to the undeniable proofs, Gentiles aren’t obligated to keep the Sabbath and neither are Christians.

Besides the explicit use of both Sabbath and Holy day (Isaiah 58 VERSE 13) as Shadows of which the Gentile Christians are not to be judged in regards to, there are many more scriptural reasons why the Gentile nations were NEVER obligated to keep the Sabbath.

1) From Adam until Moses not one single human being is commanded to observe the Sabbath. It is rather ridiculous to think that Moses whom wrote the book of Genesis failed to mention a single example of anyone keeping the Sabbath when he points out from chapter 3 on, sacrifices of animals, grain offerings and circumcision and a host of other things. 

The Sabbath was not known before Moses.  Nehemiah 9 vs 13-14 points out that the Sabbath was "MADE KNOWN" at Sinai, not at creation. 

Moses, to whom the Sabbath was FIRST revealed uses a literary prolepsis in Genesis to describe the Sabbath.  In other words, because it was revealed to him for the Jews (Exodus 31 vs 12-19, Ezek 20),  He writes it into the creation story because it was entirely UNKNOWN before then.  And scripture bears this out. 

Moses does this also in Gen.2vs 12, Moses writes of the land of Cush (Ethopia, KJV) while Cush is not born until 1600 years later!  Just as in Gen.2, there is not any land named after Ham's son "Cush" until 1600 years or more later, so in Gen.2, there is the seventh day but not commanded until Exodus 16.

So, Moses may describe the Seventh day in Gen.2 while the COMMAND TO KEEP IT, does not occur until Exodus 16.

Exodus 20 (Ex.20) and “Remember the Sabbath day”

The Adventist and Armstrong disciples claim that the commandment to “Remember the Sabbath day” in Exodus 20 means that Israel had forgotten the Sabbath. “They lost the Sabbath day” is the claim.   As I’ve shown above Joseph was ruler over Egypt and as such no example of Israel nor any others keeping the Sabbath exists.  During the hundreds of years Israel was in slavery, they never “lost” the Sabbath day.  The claim has no substance to support it.  It is to claim that not a single Israelite could count to seven and pass it down to his children. We all know Jews are a lot sharper than they are being given credit.

How then are we to explain “Remember the Sabbath day” from Exodus 20?  Exodus 16 gives the first revelation of the Sabbath.  It is very clear the Israelites have no idea when the Sabbath is, so God gives them twice the manna on the sixth day because they are to rest the seventh.  We find that some of the Israelites went out to labor and to pick up manna on the seventh day forgetting to rest from labor or ignoring the Sabbath commandment given to them.  Weeks later at Mount Sinai, God reminds Israel not to rebel and forget the Sabbath to keep it holy.

Anyone reading the Exodus account can clearly see that the 10 commandments are the covenant with "the children of Israel" and not any other foreign nation.   Exodus 19 records the context of Exodus 20!

Exodus 19 vs 1-25 (KJV) 
1  In the third month, when the children of Israel were gone forth out of the land of Egypt, the same day came they intothe wilderness of Sinai. 
2  ....were come to the desert of Sinai, and had pitched in the wilderness; and there Israel camped before the mount. 
3  And Moses went up unto God, and the LORD called unto him out of the mountain, saying, Thus shalt thou say to the house of Jacob, and tell the children of Israel
6  ....And ye shall be unto me a kingdom of priests, and an holy nation. These are the words which thou shalt speak unto the children of Israel
7  And Moses came and called for the elders of the people, and laid before their faces all these words which the LORD commanded him. 
8  And all the people answered together, and said, All that the LORD hath spoken we will do. And Moses returned the words of the people unto the LORD. 
9  And the LORD said unto Moses, Lo, I come unto thee in a thick cloud, that the people may hear when I speak with thee, and believe thee for ever. And Moses told the words of the people unto the LORD. 
10  And the LORD said unto Moses, Go unto the people, and sanctify them to day and to morrow, and let them wash their clothes, 
11  And be ready against the third day: for the third day the LORD will come down in the sight of all the people upon mount Sinai. 
12  And thou shalt set bounds unto the people round about, saying, Take heed to yourselves, that ye go not up into the mount, or touch the border of it: whosoever toucheth the mount shall be surely put to death: 
13  There shall not an hand touch it, but he shall surely be stoned, or shot through; whether it be beast or man, it shall not live: when the trumpet soundeth long, they shall come up to the mount. 
14  And Moses went down from the mount unto the people, and sanctified the people; and they washed their clothes. 
15  And he said unto the people, Be ready against the third day: come not at your wives. 
16  And it came to pass on the third day in the morning, that there were thunders and lightnings, and a thick cloud upon the mount, and the voice of the trumpet exceeding loud; so that all the people that was in the camp trembled. 
17  And Moses brought forth the people out of the camp to meet with God; and they stood at the nether part of the mount. 
18  And mount Sinai was altogether on a smoke, because the LORD descended upon it in fire: and the smoke thereof ascended as the smoke of a furnace, and the whole mount quaked greatly. 
19  And when the voice of the trumpet sounded long, and waxed louder and louder, Moses spake, and God answered him by a voice. 
20  And the LORD came down upon mount Sinai, on the top of the mount: and the LORD called Moses up to the top of the mount; and Moses went up. 
21  And the LORD said unto Moses, Go down, charge the people, lest they break through unto the LORD to gaze, and many of them perish. 
22  And let the priests also, which come near to the LORD, sanctify themselves, lest the LORD break forth upon them. 
23  And Moses said unto the LORD, The people cannot come up to mount Sinai: for thou chargedst us, saying, Set bounds about the mount, and sanctify it. 
24  And the LORD said unto him, Away, get thee down, and thou shalt come up, thou, and Aaron with thee: but let not the priests and the people break through to come up unto the LORD, lest he break forth upon them. 
25  So Moses went down unto the people, and spake unto them.

DOES ANYONE POSSIBLY HAVE ANY DOUBT THAT THE LORD WAS SPEAKING TO "THE CHILDREN OF ISRAEL" AND NOT JAPAN, CHINA  OR ANY OTHER NATION?  THE JEWS HAVE NEVER BELIEVED THAT GOD GAVE THE SABBATH TO THE JAPANESE OR ANY OTHER NATION.

2) From Adam until Moses NO HUMAN BEING is shown to observe the Sabbath. 

3) The Sabbath is a "sign" between God and the "children of Israel" (Exodus 31 vs 12-18 and All of Ezek.20, that is the RACE of those people who are descendants of Jacob of the 12 TRIBES of Israel. 

4) God NEVER condemns ANY of the other nations for not observing the Sabbath. 

5) God NEVER commands ANY of the other nations to observe the Sabbath. 

6) The Prophets NEVER command any of the nations to observe the Sabbath.


Example: In Dan.2vs 47-49 Daniel is 4"RULER over the providence of Babylon" AND NOT ONCE DOES THE PROPHET DANIEL COMMAND THE BABYLONIANS THE SABBATH DAY.

and "Shadrach, Meshach, and Abednego, over the affairs of the province of Babylon:

“ Daniel sat in the gate of the king" AND NOT ONCE does Daniel, Shadrach, Meshach or Abednego command Babylon to observe the Sabbath.

NONE OF THEM EVER MENTION THE SABBATH TO THE GENTILES. 

The Prophet Daniel converted King Nebuchadnezzar in Dan.3vs 28-30 & NEVER taught the Sabbath.


Daniel converted the Gentile King Darius in Dan.6vs 25-28 & never preached the Sabbath to the Gentiles.  Daniel 2:vs 49 *Then Daniel requested of the king, and he set Shadrach, Meshach, and Abednego, over the affairs of the province of Babylon: but Daniel sat in the gate of the king*.  

Ezekiel was the prophet 1st in Babylon, but NEVER PREACHED SABBATHS TO THE GENTILES.

Jonah tells Nineveh to Repent, yet NEVER tells them to observe the Sabbath. 

Joseph is made RULER OVER ALL OF EGYPT (Gen.41vs 42) yet Joseph neither commands Israel or Egypt to keep the Sabbath. 

7) The Prophets, MOSES INCLUDED NEVER rebuke ANY of the other nations for not observing the Sabbath. 

8) Christ nor the Apostles ever command the Gentiles to observe the Sabbath. Adventist will attempt to show that Christ kept the Sabbath and the Apostle Paul kept the Sabbath. THEY WERE JEWS of "the Children of Israel" (Paul, "of the STOCK OF ISRAEL" and from the tribe of Benjamin Phil.3vs 5) and therefore they were commanded to observe the Sabbath. 

Sabbatarians will then attempt to say because Gentiles (in the book of Acts) went into the synagogue of THE JEW to worship on the Sabbath that, it implies ALL CHRISTIANS should keep the Sabbath. Gentiles BEFORE hearing the Gospel of Christ, went into the Synagogue to worship with the Jews. 

However, they were not bound to observe the Sabbath UNTIL they were physically circumcised and THEN they commanded to keep ALL THE SABBATHS not just the weekly Sabbath and ALL the Laws of Moses not picking and choosing as Sabbatarians do. HOWEVER, not ONCE does Paul tell the Gentiles to keep the Sabbath day. 

The first time any human being keeps a "sabbath" in the Bible it is an "annual Sabbath" . And God requires that any Gentile who wishes to keep the Sabbath with the "Children of Israel" MUST FIRST BE PHYSICALLY CIRCUMCISED, Gen. 12 vs 48-49. 

9) The Sabbath commandment is not repeated in the New Testament. 

10) The Apostle Paul, ONCE A JEW WHO TRUSTED IN THE 10 COMMANDMENTS FOR RIGHTEOUSNESS converts to Christianity warns the Gentile Christians not to let the Judaizers "judge" them regarding to the Sabbath. "Sabbaton" 
the ONLY word used in the Bible for the weekly Sabbath. Col.2 verse 16 .

MOREOVER, The Apostle Paul, WHEN HE WAS SAUL, *himself , LIKE THE ADVENTISTS A SABBATH KEEPING PERSECUTOR OF THE POPE AND THEW CATHOLIC CHURCH before becoming a Christian USES BOTH THE SABBATH AND HOLY DAY IN COL. 2 VERSE 16.. SO THAT THE ADVENTISTS HAVE NO ESCAPE. YOU KNOW HOW THEY LOVE TO QUOTE THE SABBATH AS "MY HOLY DAY " from Isaiah 58 VERSE 13

Sabbatarians will say that to "keep my commandments" means 10 commandments. However, the word, "10" doesn't appear in those scriptures and when Christ says, "MY commandments, he doesn't mean, "10" .  Christ MEANS the commandments of his gospel. Christ NEVER TELL Gentiles to keep the "10 commandments" . 

1John uses the word "commandments" many times but he is speaking of the commandments to believe on Jesus Christ and to love one another 1John 3 vs 23-24. Not once IN ALL of John's Epistles or Gospel does he command anyone to keep the Sabbath day. 

The epistle of Hebrews shows that the weekly Sabbath is not the rest God wishes people to enter because "God swore in his wrath, that Israel, (who was keeping the weekly Sabbath) would NOT ENTER INTO "HIS REST" . The Rest which is "HIS REST" in Creation is what "believers" enter both Jew or Gentile. And the Sabbath rest is ahead which we are to "labor to enter" Heb.9vs 11. Hebrews also shows that the Rest in the creation was a SHADOW. It was a shadow of the rest which we will enter when our Labor is finished. 

The Apostle John speaks of the "Lord's Day" and it is the 1st day of the week as evidenced by numerous 1st century documents speaking of "the Lord's Day" as the first day of the week when Christians came to worship. 

The true gospel does NOT include the Sabbath keeping of the Jews (the Children of Israel) and that is why Christ nor the Apostles EVER command Christians to "keep the Sabbath" ' 

Christians are not commanded to keep the Sabbath. They are commanded to "believe on the Lord Jesus Christ and love one another" . 1John 3 vs 23 And this is his (God's) commandments, That we should believe on the name of his Son Jesus Christ, and love one another, as he gave us commandment. 24And he that keepeth his commandments dwelleth in him, and he in him. And hereby we know that he abideth in us, by the Spirit which he hath given us. 

Unfortunately, some Sabbatarians have rejected Christ because they REFUSE to believe that he will save those who do not "live as do the Jews" and they also REFUSE to love the brethren because they won't keep the Sabbath of the Jews. THEREBY, they DISOBEY the commandments of God for their pride in their Jewishness.

 

Isaiah 8vs20 proves the Adventist are false teachers. Because, in not 1 verse in ALL  of the Old Testament prophet, starting with Moses and through Malachi and from there to all the New Testament IS THERE NOT ONE (1) VERSE THAT COMMANDS GENTILE NATIONS TO BE SABBATH KEEPERS OR CHRISTIANS EITHER!!  THE ADVENTIST DON’T AGREE WITH EITHER THE LAW OR THE TESTIMONY! PERIOD. NOR DO THEY AGREE WITH CHRIST OR THE APOSTLES OR THE REST OF SCRIPTURE.  Like the Pharisees of Christ’s time, they are adding to the law of Moses what is NOT in scripture.

NONE OF THEM EVER MENTION THE SABBATH TO THE GENTILES. 


The Prophet Daniel converted King Nebuchadnezzar in Dan.3vs28-30 & NEVER taught the Sabbath.


Daniel converted the Gentile King Darius in Dan.6vs 25-28 & never preached the Sabbath to the Gentiles.  Daniel 2 VS 49 Then Daniel requested of the king, and he set Shadrach, Meshach, and Abednego, over the affairs of the province of Babylon: but Daniel sat in the gate of the king.  Ezekiel was the prophet 1st in Babylon, but NEVER PREACHED SABBATHS TO THE GENTILES.

MOREOVER, THE APOSTLES PAUL SPEAKS OF BOTH THE SABBATH DAY AND HOLY DAY IN COL 2 Verses 14-16 as SHADOWS!!!!

WE ALL KNOW HOW THE SDA LOVE TO QUOTE THE SABBATH AS "MY HOLY DAY " EITHER WAY, THE SDA LOSES* .

Sabbatarians will say that to "keep my commandments" means 10 commandments. However, the word, "10" doesn't appear in those scriptures and when Christ says, "MY commandments, he doesn't mean, "10" .  Christ MEANS the commandments of his gospel.

Christ, nor the Apostles, nor the Old Testament prophets all of whom the Sabbath keepers murdered, never commanded the Gentile nations or the Christians to be Sabbath keepers.

In Acts 15, the apostles and bishops of the church explicitly released all Gentile Christians from any obligation to keep Sabbath or live as do the Jews.

After the council of the Jerusalem in Acts 15 the Apostle Paul
In Col.2 verse16, warns Gentile Christians, not to let ANYONE judge them in regard to the Sabbath day or Holy Day! There is NO WAY, THAT DOESN'T INCLUDE THE WEEKLY SABBATH.

Moreover, Christ explicitly commands us to hear and obey the church and to love the church as he did . As well, the scripture says, the church is the foundation and pillar of truth .

And, the the Apostle and the Church commands us, not to let you or anyone else judge us but, you all insist on ignoring Christ's commandments, the Apostle Paul's commandment and *the decree of the Apostles and Elders on Acts 15 And 16.

. NOW THE TRUTH ABOUT WHAT CHRIST REALLY SAID IN MARK 2

IN THIS STORY CHRIST DEFENDS HIS JEWISH DISCIPLES FOR BREAKING THE SABBATH DAY CHRIST IS NOT COMMANDING ANYONE TO KEEP THE SABBATH*


2 vs 23 And it came to pass, that he went through the corn fields on the sabbath day; and his disciples began, as they went, to pluck the ears of corn.( this is condemned in Exodus 16, any type of picking up manna or food on the Sabbath day is forbidden. The JEWS WERE TO PREPARE THEIR FOOD ON FRIDAY BEFORE THE SABBATH )

24 And the Pharisees said unto him, Behold, why do they on the sabbath day that which is NOT lawful ?25 And he said unto them, Have ye never read what David did, when he had need, and was an hungred, he, and they that were with him?26 How he went into the house of God in the days of Abiathar the high priest, and did eat the shewbread, which is NOT lawful to eat but for the priests, and gave also to them which were with him?27 And he said unto them, The sabbath was made for man, and not man for the sabbath:
28 Therefore the Son of man is Lord also of the SABBATH DAY

CHRIST IS LORD OF THE SABBATH, THE SABBATH IS NOT LORD OVER CHRIST

CHRIST IS NOT DEFENDING THE SABBATH, HE'S DEFENDING HIS JEWISH DISCIPLES FOR BREAKING THE SABBATH

IN JOHN 5 VERSE 15 CHRIST SAYS BOTH HE AND HIS FATHER WORK ON THE SABBATH DAY, EVERY SABBATH DAY.
