These views are not “Western Views” but are strictly biblical.
Woman Church has always been a reference to God’s people, even in O.T. Times (& thus “Eastern Views” & straight from Jesus’ mouth).
AND an “apostate worship” system has always sprung up from among God’s people. “The Elect” people can only be ALMOST “deceived” (“if it were possible”) with a counterfeit “Woman” (Matt.24:24) – otherwise, they would NOT BE “deceived” in the LEAST with a pagan system.
A) Zion was in Southern Kingdom of Judah:
1. “I have likened the daughter of Zion to a comely and delicate woman” (Jer.6:2; 4:31)
2. “Zion spreadeth forth her hands, and there is none to comfort her…Jerusalem is as a menstruous woman among them” (Lamentations 1:17)
3. “This is the word that the LORD hath spoken… The virgin the daughter of Zion hath despised thee, and laughed thee to scorn; the daughter of Jerusalem hath shaken her head at thee” (2 Kings 19:21).
When the church would turn to pagan rituals, as in Elijah’s day (1 Kings 18:18); it became a wicked impure woman, characterized by “Jezebel,” who is a prototype (a prophetic “type”) of Last Day “Babylonian entrenched” impure woman church, arisen AMONG God’s 12 tribes.
Revelation 2:20-23 speaks of this “Jezebel”/Rome, the “antitype” of Last Days, who is taken as “fire” in the bosom of the Organized Protestant Churches (that break the 10 commandments & commit spiritual “adultery” following their “MOTHER” – comp. Rev.14:12 with 17:5).
THINK ON THIS:
You can ONLY commit “adultery” IF you had been officially married in a Judeo-Christian society – all other societies/religions believe in multiple wives, etc. So, Jezebel, of necessity, must need be of the Judeo-Christian religion (not Islamic or Muslim) in order that “spiritual adultery” is committed against the God of our religion (comp.1 Kings 21:25-29).
God never sanctioned multiple wives in O.T. days, but He “winked” at it (permitted, due to ignorance – Acts 17:30)
Revelation 17:5,15-16 makes reference to a Christian Church, which is as a fallen “MOTHER”/Woman that has “HARLOTS”/daughters. The Protestant Churches follow in Rome’s footsteps, keeping her commandments.
God’s godly Woman Church keeps all 10 “commandments of God,” as revealed in Rev.14:12 and found in Exodus 20:1-20
A) The Impure Woman Church would rise up from AMONG God’s true people (as did “Jezebel” & her “Baal” prophets in Elijah’s day, among the 12 tribes – 1 K.16:30-33), and as did
B) “Judas,” in Jesus’ day, AMONG the 12 apostles (John 13:18-19)
1. & as prophesied by Paul in 2 Thess.2:3-4, because
2. Paul took his prophecy from Jesus’ words in John 17:12, “son of perdition”
C) when Israel/Judah worshipped other gods, she was called an “HARLOT”: “And I saw, when for all the causes whereby backsliding Israel committed adultery I had put her away, and given her a bill of divorce; yet her treacherous sister Judah feared not, but went and played the HARLOT also” (Jeremiah 3:8)
D) John tells us in 1 John 2:18-19, that antichrist “went out from us” — that is, went out FROM among the true church:
“Little children, it is the last time: and as you have heard that Antichrist shall come, even now are there MANY Antichrists; whereby we know that it is the last time. They went out from US, but they were not of US; for if they had been of US, they would no doubt have continued with US: but they went out, that they might be made manifest that they were not all of US.” ——–
CHRIST, as LAST Adam,
is looking His Woman Church to be ready, a PURE VIRGIN Bride(comp.Rev.12:1)to sit & rule with Him, as QUEEN (godly help-meet). SATAN is looking for his Woman Church/”MOTHER of HARLOTS.” SHE “keeps” his “10 commands” — which WERE God’s 10 commands, BUT “changed” by the TRAITOR, Rome —(2nd removed, 4th changed, 10th split). Ex. 20:1-20;& Dan.7:25- (See “Footnotes”)
Satan is therefore itching to counterfeit Jesus’ 2nd Coming
(he has confused what the “rapture” truly means). Satan “transformed into an angel of light“- (2 Corin.11:14) will therefore be looking for an help-meet as well – a queen, an impure Woman Church, who sits & rides upon all the kings of the Earth – to ensure, that they (the whole world) will worship him (Lucifer – Rev.13:3). If it were possible, even the elect would be deceived (Matthew 24:24)
We are WARNED that we cannot interpret prophecy using our own opinions.
—• There are strict rules of interpretation,
—• Peter tells us in 2 Pet.1:19-21 “prophecy is not of any private interpretation.” 1⃣
PAUL says “SON of PERDITION” rises up from AMONG us.
—• Jesus called Judas Iscariot, “son of perdition.” The “ANTI” in antichrist is NOT interpreted “against-Christ” but “another-Christ,” or “in place of-Christ.” The Pope declares himself openly, as standing in Christ’s place. He wears the three tiered crown (king of Heaven, Earth & Hell) stating himself as, “Vicar of the Son of God”
—• “Vicarius Filii Dei”
ROME is COUNTERFEIT Woman CHURCH, who is trying to USURP the role of God’s TRUE Woman Church. The STATUE in Daniel is in ONE piece – that means there was no skip between, when one ruling King/kingdom rose up — one after the other.
ISLAM did not arise until much later –
and they did not have the torch passed onto them, as did Justinian (a Roman pagan ruler) pass it onto the Roman Bishop (Roman Catholic ruler), who then became pope — AND all popes after him, to this present day.
THUS PROPHESY in CONTINUAL LINE: IT WAS prophesied that they would rule during the Dark Ages for 1260 years in Daniel, until Napoleon dealt him a “deadly wound” (Rev.13:3) – but which had begun to heal in 1929, when Concordant signed between “the man of sin” & Mussolini, the newspapers stated, “wound healed”2⃣
Then we see where the Roman Catholic Pope/”the little horn” rooted up the 3 horns of the “ten” ruling nations (Ostrogoths, Vandals, & Heruli) of Europe to form the 10 toes on the great image, as we see today from the Alemanni, Anglo-Saxons, Franks, Burgundians, Visigoths, Suevi, Ostrogoths, Heruli, Vandals, and Lombards (are known today as France, Spain, Italy, Great Britain, Germany, etc) And as prophesied in Daniel 7:8, 20-26 3⃣
If you want this link: http://www.sundaylaw.net/books/other/standish/twobeasts/tb06.htm) It is ROME who created Islam. ONE of Muhammed’s wives was a nun.
—• this is why Muslims adore Mary and
—• think of Jesus as a Prophet. THE 12 TRIBES of Israel and their names reveal history in a continuous line.
—• beginning with Reuben, as depicting Adam on down to the End/Last Days,
—• whereby Benjamin reveals God’s Last Day Church (I’ve drawn up chart). The “spiritually lost” tribe in Revelation 7 is DAN, and is a symbolic “name” PROPHECY that clearly reveals who the “spiritually lost” Church is: 1 Kings 12:28-31
“Whereupon the king took counsel, and made two calves of GOLD [adopted pagan practices], and said unto them, It is too much for you to go up to Jerusalem [the true temple]: behold thy gods, O Israel, which brought thee up out of the land of Egypt. And he set the one in Bethel, and the other put he in DAN. And this thing became a sin: for the people went to worship before the one, even unto DAN. And he made an house of high places, and made [false] PRIESTS of the lowest of the people, which were NOT of the sons of LEVI” – even as it is today with “priests” who call themselves “Father.” ____________________________________________________________________
1⃣ “Private interpretation” means, your own opinion, or view or ideas, outside the Bible words, and their meanings contained within the Bible itself – defining all prophecy *** • That means we must compare scripture with scripture. — The Bible “teaches” us how to apply interpretation. • It has to be proven, using the Bible as its own dictionary (Eph.4:14-16) — For now, KJV is only Bible guaranteed to be its own dictionary – the only Bible purposely designed so – compilers were compelled to make it agree with itself in definition, under the inspiration of the Holy Spirit: 2 Pet.1:19-21, “holy men of God spake as they were moved by the Holy Ghost” *** God tells us to compare “law & testimony” “here a little, there a little, line upon line, precept upon precept” – all this must be meticulously done. Serious subjects require serious research (Isaiah 28:8-13)

3⃣ “The Catholic Church alone, then, Christ calls His Spouse. The Church, therefore, is one; this cannot be said amongst any of those who are heretics or schismatics. The churches of every one of the heretics is prostituted; they are churches which Christ repudiates as unnecessary, since He is the Spouse of One Church” — St. Optatus of Milevis, “Schism of the Donatists,” Book I, no’s. 6, 10; LAF, vol. II; PL 11; CSL, vol. XXVI, Vienna: 1893; FOC, p.158, (quoted in The Apostolic Digest, by Michael Malone, Book 4: “The Book of Christians”, Chapter 2: “Those Who Reject Christ’s Church Are Anti-Christian”) —- See how the “MOTHER” Church has “changed times and laws” (Dan.7:25).

I’ve cut in half what I had written. I could write a book on what I know. Sorry this is so long. ONE last warning: God’s organized church has typically been “betrayers and murderers. Who have received THE law by the disposition of angels, and have NOT kept it” – said Stephen (as next of last words to the Jewish leaders, before being stoned to death – Acts 7:52-53) It’s happened in past (2,000 yrs. ago) and, it will be repeated. History always repeats itself… ____________________________________________________________________
