ROMAN CATHOLIC CHURCH AS THE MOTHER OF ALL APOSTATE CHURCHES
This means the bible prophecy about the mother apostate church and her daughters is no mistake at all, if one properly considers the following quotations above, where Catholic leaders readily admit the responsibility for the change of the Sabbath and its transfer as legacy to their daughter churches.
The book of Revelation puts it better in the following passages:
"(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 the 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 fornications: (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: 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 the beast that carrieth her, which hath the seven heads and ten horns." REV. 17:3-7
Wow! What a revelation from God Almighty Who shines at dark places to unfold great mysteries. Talking about a woman in prophecy is nothing but a CHURCH and a CITY.
"And the woman which thou sawest is that great city, which reigneth over the kings of the earth." REV.17:18
From where should the church receive it instructions? "Wives, submit yourselves to your own husbands, as unto the Lord. For the husband is the head of the wife, even as Christ is head of the church: and he is the saviour of the body. Therefore as the church is subject unto Christ, so let the wives be unto their own husbands in every thing." EPH. 5:22-24
You see that after numerous searches taking us around the scriptures, history, current affairs and many others, we have come back to arrive at the same truth that a certain church should come out of the fourth kingdom linked with the ten-horned beast with seven heads. Thus is stated above in verses 3 and 7 that there is a certain woman (church) sitting (established) upon the beast (Roman Empire). You will bear with me that if a Church in Rome, that is the Roman Catholic Church, is what is being pictured here, there is no doubt that her daughter churches are those churches who still keep most or some of her precepts of the day of worship and festivals mentioned above. So in a nut shell it is obvious that all those churches of today who do not strictly adhere to the commandments of God, but rather the doctrines of Satan through the traditions of Catholicism are all APOSTATE CHURCHES who have fallen away from the real truth. 1 TIM.4:1, 2.
So ultimately, the text from REV.17:3-7 shows that the woman sitting on the scarlet beast is that Great City, which reigned during John's time, is ROME. Since it is a Church of Rome , that later became the Roman Catholic Church, it is no wonder that this text also describes the Church being discussed in this matter. So Rome is the Imperial City in which was established the Catholic Church. Therefore the Catholic Church, which originally was Apostate from the real truth of God, later gave birth to her Apostate daughter churches. These daughter churches, most established by protesting their mother church, can now only accept their position as PROTESTANTS TO THEIR MOTHER.
