|Revelation 12:6,14,17:1,15 |
6 Then the woman fled into the wilderness, where she has a place prepared by God, that they should feed her there one thousand-two-hundred and sixty days.2 [In 388 AD the true church of Christ was destroyed, its remnants driven into the wilderness, to reappear briefly 1260 years later as the early Quakers. The Quakers later became completely apostatized, resulting in the true church once again returning to the wilderness, where the Lord is leading individuals around the world, who one day will coalesce to bring the true church public once again.]
14 And to the woman were given two wings of a great eagle, so that she might fly into the wilderness, into her place, where she is nourished for a time, and times, and half a time, from the face of the serpent.
1 Then one of the seven angels who had the seven bowls came and talked with me, saying to me, "Come here; I will show to you the judgment of the great whore who sits upon many waters;1
15 And he said to me, "The waters that you saw, where the whore sits, are peoples, and multitudes, and nations, and languages. [In this verse the Greek word for tongues or languages, (glwssai <1100>) is the same word used throughout 1 Cor 14 that speaks about the gift of tongues or languages. Clearly the whore sits on the world of languages, not supposed heavenly tongues; clearly the gift of tongues or languages also speaks of the different languages of the world.
