THE LADY IN RED (32 of 39)
THE KING IS COMING
Dr. James Merritt
REVELATION 17

INTRODUCTION

1. HAVE YOU EVER HEARD OF THE "WICKED WITCH OF THE
WEST?" WE ARE GOING TO BE TAKING A LOOK AT THE "WICKED
WITCH OF THE WORLD." THERE IS SOMETHING INDEED
FASCINATING ABOUT WOMEN, ESPECIALLY MYSTERIOUS WOMEN.
JOHN WAS FASCINATED BY THIS WOMAN FOR HE SAYS IN V.6
"WHEN I SAW HER, I MARVELED WITH GREAT AMAZEMENT."

2. REVELATION IS A BOOK WHERE WOMEN ARE INDEED

BOOK OF THE REVELATION.IN REVELATION 12:1 THE NATION

MOTHER REPRESENTS THE COMING UNIVERSAL CHURCH. THE
MONSTER REPRESENTS THE COMING UNIVERSAL STATE. THIS
CHURCH AND THIS STATE ARE GOING TO BECOME ONE. THERE
IS GOING TO BE A MARRIAGE OF CHURCH AND STATE UNLIKE
