This blog is a short excerpt from my online booklet length blog, "One Cloudy Day In Desert Storm."  I hope you find this blog useful.   I encourage you to read and share the blogs on this site.  Much of my teaching is not abundantly available in the mainstream churches, at least not yet.  I especially recommend the blog from which this blog is taken, and the blog titled, "Is II Thessalonians 2:7 Really The Rapture?You might be surprised at what you find!
Revelation 17:1, 5 & 15
 1  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:
 5 And upon her forehead was a name written, MYSTERY, BABYLON THE GREAT, THE
15  And he saith unto me, The waters which thou sawest, where the whore sitteth,
     are peoples, and multitudes, and nations, and tongues.
Looking to Rev 17:1, 5 & 15, what might we discern about the word "mystery?"
Verse 1 calls the whore "the great whore that sitteth upon many waters."  Verse 5 says that she has the names "MYSTERY" and "MOTHER OF HARLOTS" etc. on her forehead, and verse 15 says, "The waters which thou sawest, where the whore sitteth, are peoples, and multitudes, and nations, and tongues."  The whore is the mother of harlots.  She is on many waters, and those waters are the peoples and multitudes etc. from all over the world.  She is mothering the masses of harlots.  If she is mothering all of those masses, isn't she pretty much going to have to stay a little pregnant, giving birth to new masses of abominations everywhere? 
Romans 12:8
8   But if ye be without chastisement, whereof all are partakers, then are ye
     bastards, and not sons.
The phrase many waters is interesting.  Back in the days of the apostles, a woman with child really went into hard labor.  They didn't have the medicines and procedures available to them that are available now via modern medicine.  They sat on many waters.  They poured out sweat; their water broke, and they shed many tears.  So, what is the "MYSTERY" of "the "great whore who sitteth on many waters?"  What question (or MYSTERY) normally follows any whore who is with child?  How about, "Who's the father?"  
Every new congregation of unbelievers which is led astray is another harlot child of that whore on the waters.  She is sitting there pushing that bastard of the antiChrist false prophet!  She is laboring for his name, continually rebirthing, baptizing 
(figuratively) her harlot children in the masses of the deceived.  They are being born again unto the false prophet.  The whole world of unbelievers is becoming a mock church, but they are wearing the mark of death.
