In Revelation 17 we find the collapse of the apostate world church. In the process we see Satan's harlot bride, the delusion of religion. From Eden onward Satan has been building his church. Eve was tempted and fell into sin but never joined. Cain was Satan's first member (I John 3:12) and the church has flourished ever since. Today the church of Satan has many congregations. Some meet in those ivory towers of academia where God is banished from education. And if God is out of the equation there is only one other source of authority, right?
Other congregations meet in churches, synagogues, mosques, cathedrals, and temples where organized religion stresses the achievements of humans working their way to God. This is the church of good works, self-righteousness and 'I do it my way‚ÄĚ. This is the following of rules; the joining of church and the hoping the good out weighs the bad in the balance of religions. This is the religion of many ways to God and many gods to seek. This is man's making their god in their own image.
Jesus came to seek and save His Bride. He gave Himself to purchase her from sin and damnation. Jesus ever lives as a Great high Priest to purify and cleanse His Bride from all defilement. The True Bride of Jesus is a pure and chaste virgin, washed in the blood of the lamb, sealed by the Holy Spirit awaiting the day of marriage to Jesus.
