Spoke 17

The Brazen Whore

Revelation 17 chain Isaiah 17 chain Esther

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.

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 17.3f

Brazen blasphemy characterizes the Great Harlot. Her forehead declares her reprobate mind, as it is written (Jeremiah 3.3):

... thou hadst a whore's forehead, thou refusedst to be ashamed.

The modern Hebrew words pic (Prutzah, Prostitute) and pic (Pritzuth, Prostitution/Licentiousness) perfectly express the quality of open and unashamed impudence ascribed to the Great Whore. Both are from the fundamental Peh KeyWord pic (Paratz) meaning breach, break open, burst, part, or break in pieces, hence debauchery and moral dissolution. This all comes from the essence of the Peh - Resh root characteristic of Spoke 17. Rabbinical Tradition describes Vashti as having the character of Pritzuth in their commentaries on Esther (cf. Purim) which begins with the drunken revelry of King Achashverosh and his ostentatious display of the "the riches of his glorious kingdom and the honour of his excellent majesty":

In the third year of his reign, he made a feast unto all his princes and his servants; the power of Persia and Media, the nobles and princes of the provinces, being before him: When he shewed the riches of his glorious kingdom and the honour of his excellent majesty many days, even an hundred and fourscore days. And when these days were expired, the king made a feast unto all the people that were present in Shushan the palace, both unto great and small, seven days, in the court of the garden of the king's palace; Where were white, green, and blue, hangings, fastened with cords of fine linen and purple to silver rings and pillars of marble: the beds were of gold and silver, upon a pavement of red, and blue, and white, and black, marble. And they gave them drink in vessels of gold, (the vessels being diverse one from another,) and royal wine in abundance, according to the state of the king. And the drinking was according to the law; none did compel: for so the king had appointed to all the officers of his house, that they should do according to every man's pleasure.

The descriptions of Achashverosh's feast and that of the Great Whore are essentially identical. Both describe the sumptuous colours - purple, red/scarlet - and wine drunk in golden cups/vessels. Likewise, both involve extreme excesses of sinful godless revelry. Both reveal the essence of Pritzuth.

The story of Esther then tells of Haman's attempt to rally all the people in every province against the Jews, to destroy them. This sea of people is a common theme linking Spoke 17 of the Inner Wheels of Revelation and Isaiah with the bwheel. It begins with the opening verse of Revelation 17:

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:

These waters are identified in verse 15:

And he saith unto me, The waters which thou sawest, where the whore sitteth, are peoples, and multitudes, and nations, and tongues.

Searching the KJV for all verses containing the words (multitude*, people*, water*) yields exactly two verses, Revelation 17.15 above and this from Isaiah 17.12:

Woe to the multitude of many people, which make a noise like the noise of the seas; and to the rushing of nations, that make a rushing like the rushing of mighty waters! The nations shall rush like the rushing of many waters: but God shall rebuke them, and they shall flee far off, and shall be chased as the chaff of the mountains before the wind, and like a rolling thing before the whirlwind.

We have this very significant KeyLink connecting the two great Inner Wheels:

KeyLink Set: (Peoples, Multitudes, Waters)
Isaiah 17chainRevelation

It is also significant that both Isaiah 17 and Revelation 17 contain the phrase "many waters." This all strongly reiterates many of the themes connecting Isaiah 17 with Book 17 (cf. God's Lot for His Enemies). The word translated as multitude in Isaiah 17 is Hamon, which differs by one letter from the name of the wicked Haman, the enemy of all Jews in Esther. The essence of the story of Esther - the action of the hidden hand of God through apparent "circumstances" - also manifests here in Revelation 17.16f:

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. For God hath put in their hearts to fulfil his will, and to agree, and give their kingdom unto the beast, until the words of God shall be fulfilled. And the woman which thou sawest is that great city, which reigneth over the kings of the earth.
