THE NAMES OF THE SEVEN MOUNTAINS
ON WHICH THE WOMAN SITTETH.
First, a review of portions of Revelation chapter 17--
REVELATION CHAPTER 17
(As found in the Authorized Version of the Bible
conformable to the edition of 1611)
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:
2 With whom the kings of the earth have committed fornication, and the inhabitants of the earth have been made drunk with the wine of her fornication.
3 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.
4 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:
5 And upon her forehead was a name written, MYSTERY, BABYLON THE GREAT, THE MOTHER OF HARLOTS AND ABOMINATIONS OF THE EARTH.
6 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.
7 And the angel said unto me, Wherefore didst thou marvel? I will tell thee the mystery of the woman, and of the beast that carrieth her, which hath the seven heads and ten horns.
9 And here is the mind which hath wisdom. The seven heads are SEVEN MOUNTAINS, ON WHICH THE WOMAN SITTETH.
15 And he saith unto me, The waters which thou sawest, where the whore sitteth, are peoples, and multitudes, and nations, and tongues.
18 And THE WOMAN which thou sawest IS THAT GREAT CITY, which reigneth over the kings of the earth.
There are seven mountains, on which the woman sitteth . . .
MOUNTAIN, n. ...We apply mountain to the largest eminences on the globe; but sometimes the word is used for a large HILL...
Okay, (1) there are seven mountains on which the woman sitteth. . . and (2) the woman is that great city. . .Revelation 17:18 And THE WOMAN which thou sawest IS THAT GREAT CITY, which reigneth over the kings of the earth.
THE WOMAN IS THAT GREAT CITY THAT SITS ON SEVEN MOUNTAINS. . .
The great CITY of Rome (located in Italy) has been long known as the, "City of the Seven Hills" or the "City of Seven hills". An excerpt from A Woman Rides the Beast by Dave Hunt (p. 67, emphases ours)--Only one city has for more than 2000 years been known as the city on seven hills. That city is Rome. The Catholic Encyclopedia states: "It is within the city of Rome, called the city of seven hills, that the entire area of Vatican State proper is now confined."
The following list includes the names of the seven mountains known as the "Seven Hills of Rome"--
- Caelian (Caelius)
An excerpt from the Funk & Wagnalls Standard Reference Encyclopedia (c. 1965) under the entry for "Rome"--As a result of construction activities through the centuries, most of the Seven Hills are hardly distinguishable, in modern times, from the adjacent plain. Rome is still styled the City of the Seven Hills, however.
Excerpts from The Antichrist Slideshow, concerning the seven mountains of Revelation 17:9--
The New American Bible (NAB), is a Catholic Bible which has the Nihil Obstat and Imprimatur (official Catholic declarations that a book or pamphlet is free of doctrinal or moral error). The "School and Church Edition (1994-1995)" of the NAB says this concerning the Great Whore of Revelation 17 (emphases ours)--17, 1-6, Babylon, the symbolic name (5) of Rome, is graphically described as "the great harlot".
17, 9 Here is a clue: literally, "Here a mind that has wisdom." Seven hills: of Rome.
