The Great Harlot

To read the Bible in a year, read Revelation 17.
The last time John saw a woman in the Book of Revelation was in chapter 12. He saw the people of God (Israel) bringing into the world the Christ, then she fled into the wilderness (the church). In chapter 17, he saw a woman again. An angel told him, “Come, I will show you the judgment of the great harlot who sits on many waters” (Revelation 17:1). Why was God judging her? She committed fornication with the kings of the earth, and she made the inhabitants of the earth drunk with the wine of her fornication (v. 2).
Be sure to read verse 3 to discover where John saw this woman! Then wonder greatly, as John did, as to who this woman was!
