There you can hear part one of this message, along with all of the previous messages from our programs that are archived on our website.

Again, God 1st.Ward so this week were going to listen to part two.

In the conclusion of the Scarlet harlot again from Pastor Al Pittman in a message delivered at Calvary worship Center in Colorado Springs, Colorado. How can those who say that Christians devour each other. He smartly know that you know that happens in the church. Even today, John marveled at how we devour one another in the name of Jesus calling ourselves Christians and gossiping about each other and devoured each other and each other and plotting against each other job was. How can she recall the crazy things will the fact is that you can be a Christian in name only, and denied Jesus by your works, and this is what she is done this great harlot is possible to have Jesus on my lips and all my mind, have the knowledge, the degree I have of mastering divinity or whatever and not have Jesus in your hearts.

Isaiah chapter 29 the Lord God's is therefore the Lord said is much as these people draw near with their mouths and honor me with the lips, but have removed their heart far from me in their fear toward me is taught by the commandments of men. These people have me on the lips for the heart far from me. What is that is what Paul called a form of godliness but denying the power thereof. The relationship with me is according to the commandments of men all III told the line I look like a Christian. I dress the way they want me to dress. I talked the way they want me to talk. I looked away will be look is far from God. This is where the great harlot is this what she's about in verses 7 to 11 John marveled how could she have blood.

The blood of the cold by the name of Christ and have blood on her hands, he marvels verse seven. But the angel said to him, why did you marveled one day to say that because you know John that you know the nature of man, don't you know how people really are. How unfaithful mankind is going to know the nature of man, depraved nature of man. If we as believers do not walk in the spirit Romans chapter 8 tells us that we walk in the flesh will die this when you lose your salvation but your relationship with the Lord become nullified intimacy, no transforming relationship with Jesus Christ. Therefore walk you in the spirit so that you do not gratify the desires of the flesh. He says in Galatians is so true. This is the note that this is his way to make the nature of mankind, is why do you marvel, John, so I will tell you the mystery of the woman and of the beast that carries her, which was the seventh which has rather the seven heads and 10 horns. The beast that you saw was and is not and will ascend out of the bottomless pit, and go to perdition now we talked about this back in Revelation chapter 13 that the beast this is the antichrist here that is speaking about that and I crazily wound it suffer a mortal wound will die and then come back to life in the whole world will blow your buddies even know Jesus Christ is risen from the dead, but we see this happens to be. Surveys will be a while though this is the man. This is the and be really impressed, but it's a counterfeit resurrection is not east is a counterfeit resurrection and he says, and those who dwell on the earth will marvel, whose names are not written in the book of life from the foundation of the world, when they see the beast that was and is not yet is here is the mind which has wisdom. The seven heads are seven mountains on which the woman sits there also seven kings. Five have fallen, one is in the other has not yet come in when he comes, he must continue a short time. The beast that was and is not, is himself also.

The eighth and is of the seven and is going to perdition all right. We all understand that this move will okay list. Let's unpack it all right. The mystery of the harlot wisely says the history of the harlot there in verse seven is talking about the secret of the harlot is now revealed no the hottest men, living in secret. But what I'm to show you who she really is what it is made manifest. She really is. John says in first John that there are those who went out from us, but he went from us because they were never among us never with us there and one with us and went out that it might be manifested in a number of us in the first place is so a lot of people are in the church within out of the church in the day is come for this great harlot. Where did the angel since it was Sherry who she really mystery is now revealed she's not really with us at all. She's not really with the Lord and the beast in verse eight this week that I've already mentioned is the antichrist and antichrist is supporting the great harlot. She's writing on the see what happens with that in just a moment.

But here's one thing I want to pass along to you is never a good thing for the church to be supported by the world is never a good thing for the church to be supported by the world because in order to win the world support you always have to appease the world and when we start receiving support from the world and the world is like hey the church is writing we should get behind the church. Watch out step that encompassed statement that's not a good thing. I don't worry about is around the same. The oldest get America back. It used to be you know that we get back to you know religious roots, judo, Judeo-Christian values know that this greatest wonderful when world starts embracing the church. This problem Jesus come to bring peace again to bring a sword to bring division and there's a clear division between light and darkness is one of the reasons why I have never supported the idea of our church receiving any kind. A grant from the government never will never have got sick. Trust me, I'll provide any has a man noticing that equipment from an apartment celebrating is just a little me a long time ago because a lot of grants out there. We were tempted oldest grant will be in this group office aggrandizement not listed don't you there don't you don't you have some un-tempered mortar mortar that you mixing together here because the reality is that if you embrace are you to accept the grant. The people can come in and tell you what to say and what not to say in working to preach the whole counsel of God's word here today. A man and would always preach his word well past trauma really like your organization to find what you could just be more positive and leave out Jesus thing is you know what. In order for you to receive this know $500,000. You know you need to embrace LGBT Q and you need to embrace all the other religions all that you know you need to be more universal angle happened in or not. According to this word amen light has no fellowship with darkness in your business world. Whatever you want except the grant is up to you. This before the house of God.

Jesus is the head, and God is our Jehovah gyri. He is our provider a man could just feel definitely live by faith is so God is provided for his church give God praise known verse nine. The seven heads are seven mountains where the harlot resides.

Most scholars believe the seven mountains speak of wall are seven hills are seven mountains in Rome. Their names and if you're fluent in Italian. You can come and rebuke me later, but there named Alateen E. Karen criminal skews me minimal escalate and CC Seeley and skews me and Evan team or Aventine.

So these are seven mountains seven hills upon which Rome was built on a believe that this seven hills, seven mountains is where this harlot is city exceeded that she seated in Roman so therefore, some people believe that that possibly the Roman Catholic Church along with the Protestant church will be spearheading this false church during the tribulation. If you are just now joining this, we are listening today to the message the scarlet harlot by Pastor Al Pittman message was given at the Calvary worship Center in Colorado Springs, Colorado. We are going to Paul's for a brief announcement, but please don't go away. On the other side of the break will be back with the conclusion again of this message, the scarlet harlot from Pastor Al Pittman in Colorado Springs, Colorado. Don't go away you attune into a diverse program you are listening to God first.

Now let's return to the conclusion of the program that speculation is yet to be saying we will see what we do know this better headquarters, harlot, scarlet harlot is wrong. In verses 10 and 11.

There we also see seven kings no you were yet to listen closely regards a seven kings according to verse 10 says that five of these kings or kingdoms have passed away and one however was present. That is existed during the time John is writing the book of Revelation and one is yet to come may believe that the five pass kings referred to five pass kingdoms kingdoms are these in your right fashion right is down, but they are in Egypt, Syria, Babylon, Persia and Greece, Egypt, Syria, Syria, Syria, Babylon, Persia and Greece. The present kingdom. The sixth kingdom in John's day was the Roman Empire. The Roman Empire in the future kingdom. The seventh kingdom to come is the kingdom of the beast that is the Antichrist. I want to confuse you but some scholars believe is not five kingdoms is five kings and so will let them let them debate about that and some believe that the five teams are five Roman rulers and is consumer quickness. They think that is probably Julius Caesar, Tiberius, Caligula, Claudius and Nero and the 61 being the Michigan Michigan was actually ruling Roman Empire at the time John is writing the book of Revelation.

Here's the point. The point is that both of these interpretations point to the fact that that seventh kingdom is the kingdom of the beast or the Antichrist. In verse 10, the latter part is says that he will continue for a short time, you will be a short timer. This keying of the arcane or kingdom.

The seventh kingdom would be for short time. It's only seven years.

During the tribulation.

The talks are short on time is seven years.

During the relation time. In verse 11.

The beast is says was the seventh so he of the 70s. The same spirit, same ilk or whatever reason same piece of the seven the beast, the anticrisis of the seven, and that he will be the seventh kingdom, a revived Roman Empire in the last days we talked about that and wrote Rome Revelation chapter 13, but is based on Daniel's prophecy this revived Roman Empire in the last days when Daniel chapter 9 verse 27 but he will also be the eighth so he's of the seventh Antichrist as of the seventh kingdom is kingdom will be the seventh kingdom, but he's also on the April what is a the eighth is the 10 nation confederation to nation confederation that he will rule over toward his final days.

We read about it here in verse 12 and 13 verse 12 it says the 10 horns which you saw are 10 kings 10 rulers who have received no kingdom as yet, but they receive authority for one hour as kings with the beast. These are of one mind, and they will give their power and authority to the beast so for one hour. It would give their authority to the beast in context that one hour literally means the Greek word for one hour literally means a certain short time, or short sees and Daniel's prophecy Daniel's tells us that short season is 3 1/2 years three and half years, he says, is a time, times and half a time which is 3 1/2 years. This 10 nation confederation will be rule by the Antichrist. A short time. According to Daniel chapter 7 verses 24 and 25 they will experience a demonically inspired unity they will come against the Lamb of God, the people of God and yet the Bible says in verse 14. These will make war with the Lamb and the Lamb will overcome them, for he is Lord of lords and King of Kings and those who are with him are called, chosen and faithful hallelujah amen in the midst of all this chaos, a man praise the Lord given praise and glory. Thank you father that the Lamb of God will now united at 10 nation confederation in the coming against the people of God looks like that when he reminds me of Mohammed Ali, one of his tactics and in boxing was called the role but don't write it is like the enemy is winning the charges against the ropes you know and doing the rope would go. But you know Holly would like to become.

And it is hit admitted until he wears him out clock on maven knockabout right called adult and I believe this particular time, and even now that the enemy is coming against the church. The church looks up against the rope. But Jesus did, ready for T JOA met the enemy and is setting them up here in the book of Revelation when we got a call we got one old government. Now we got you going to give it to God now looks like it got him against the ropes and he comes out. Amen in the Lamb overcome this to nation confederation overcomes the world. The same thing applies in our lives. Folks will you may feel like you're up against the roast this morning. I feel like the Devils when it passed from taking the post open got ready for TK. I love what Michael says Micah chapter 7 verse he says do not rejoice over me. My enemy when I fall I will rise. When I sit in darkness. The law will be alike to me talk on the champagne double to so I'm just about finished because I was down but I'm not out.

Amen. Praise his holy name and noticed something here or to the season here also the difference between what the devil says about you. With the Lord's was a double say to you what he says you what he says to me you're hopeless you can never get it right your loser you been forsaken And care anything about you.

Things of the devil is constantly trying to tell the lives because what does Jesus say about those that are in him. Bible says about those who are in Christ latter part of verse 14 you chosen in your faithful who you me. That's right, you chosen in ecology faithful. How can you call you faithful is not because of your faithfulness with the faithfulness of the South. Amen. He knew no sin became sin for us, that we might become the righteousness of God in him. Amen.

He looks at SEC's righteousness of the son he says you chosen in your faithful amen is not good.

There is now no condemnation for those who are in Christ Jesus. Amen. Praise his holy name. God calls you chosen because you faithful because of his son versus 15 to 18. As we continue. Then he said to me, the waters which you saw with the harlot sits, or peoples, multitudes, nations and tongues, and the 10 horns which you saw on the beast, these these rulers will hate the harlot, make her desolate and naked, eat her flesh and burn her with fire is what you don't trust and the support that you get from the world they turn against the great harlot then assesses God is large and in charge, for God has put it in their hearts to fulfill his purpose to be of one mind, and to give their kingdom to the beast, until the words of God are fulfilled.

Can we get that down our soul in the next presidential election that God is not intimidated by who's in the White House, you are you got your underwear in a bunch over who's in the White House got a word Psalm two says the nations rage and God sits on the stone.

Alas, I don't know but I do know this is nobody's an authority, but I got non-Christians have a plumber that you know what her problem is in a live by faith and trust God to give you what God wants of others. We should vote absolutely perform a civic duty, but understand that the outcome is in the hands of God and even when it looks like the wicked are winning. They are falling in line with God's agenda for did you hear me I say Obama is bullish. Is this true love. God is in control, and a man praise his holy name. I say we had a like it said we just know we just trust God is the harlot is destroyed the nation's turn against her her demise. Reminds me of my childhood story you gingerbread man member him and by religion. The written my favorite childhood story that I think every time I read it I was hungry. I don't know though that all the trouble could have any kids.

And so the wife make a gingerbread boy to open the pop studies, a real boy, a soft lining, and he says that her run run as fast as you can. You can catch me on the gingerbread man I am. I and he runs from the Kauai league and the horse and the farmer comes to the river and he can't get across is you want to step in the water he might dissolve so little fox comes along. What would you hop on my back, I'll take you across. He goes about halfway across my head. Each of his head my nose. He's on his note will for me. The fox knows his head back and gingerbread boy Easter gingerbread boy right. Great story Amax was thinking, I think is very similar. What happens to the scarlet harlot riding on the back of the antichrist and antichrist is ours isn't like the nature of sin. Sin supports you only to condemn how many times are we done things the night before to only find condemnation, waiting by the bedside first thing in the morning. What an awesome message from Pastor Al Pittman of Calvary worship Center in Colorado Springs, Colorado want to give a big thank you to him into his wonderful staff for making the sermon available and allowing us to share it with you. Our audience so we just give a big thank you and let this message seep into your heart, seep into your mind, because as you heard Pastor Pittman stating we as the church we are in the world but we are not not to be of the world, meaning we are not supposed to live by the ways of the world. The world should not influence us.

But so many today seem to be concerned about pleasing the world weathers due to fear of weather is due to wanting popularity and maybe wanting money.

Whatever the motivation may be there so many that are more concerned about the world and they are about the word of God in the Bible calls us to come out from among them. Again, we are to witness to the world.

We are to evangelize to the world.

We are to help the world when they are in need.

You're not supposed to live as the world should come out of it with the Bible calls spiritual fornication. We have taken the ways of the world and bring it into God's house when we take the ways of the world and bring it into our Christian lives. The Bible calls that spiritual indication we are not to be of the world you know I am loving the book of Revelation as those of you who have heard me in the past be departing say many times that is my favorite book in all of the Bible and I heard so many times growing up. People would say stay away from that book, he will drive you crazy. It will make you lose your mind but I say, why would a God who loved us so much that he came to this earth in the form of a man to be tormented to be tortured and to die and then to only turn around and give us a book that would drive us crazy doesn't make sense is a God of love. He loves us. That's why he died for us and we can have eternal life. So don't be deceived by the devil who tries to get you to stay away from his book has so many great promises that points to the coming kingdom about the great Lord Jesus Christ will folks were all out of time for this week, but I want to thank you for tuning me and please come back and join us again next week as we continue to encourage you to put God first, while viewing life through the window of the Bible. Until then, remember to pray for the peace of Jerusalem plus God's great nation of Israel to the only wise God be glory through Jesus Christ, forever. Amen. Into the God first program next week as we continue to encourage you to put God first. Until next time great nation
