Review: Who Was the Mother of Harlots: Drunk with the Blood of the Saints


Who Was the Mother of Harlots: Drunk with the Blood of the Saints
Who Was the Mother of Harlots: Drunk with the Blood of the Saints by Steve Temple

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

This is a very nice, concise treatise looking back at the history of God's dealings with his people Israel and Judah, and all of the times of covenant breaking, idolatry, harlotry, etc. that they had performed time and time again, and how God promised over and over again how they would be brought under judgment for it. To me this is great to have, a single shorter work detailing all of the issues of the people over the centuries in one place.

Taking this detailed history, and comparing it to the words spoken to that harlot "Babylon" in Revelation, their is only one viable conclusion you can make; Revelation's mystery Babylon, the mother of harlots, drunk with the blood of the martyr's, is Israel, and specifically those in Jerusalem at the time of the prophecy being spoken.

In the end, this book shows how Revelation is speaking directly about the divine judgment that came upon those old covenant people in AD 70. Good stuff.
