Revelation 17:18 and the Great City Rome

Flag-map of Holy Roman Empire (1779)

Revelation 17:18 And the woman which thou sawest is that great city, which reigneth over the kings of the earth.

“The “woman in Revelation 17:18 is the “MOTHER OF HARLOTS” of verse 5 which is also the “great city”: ROME! This is easily proven when you know the prophecy was given in the Apostle John’s day. “reignth” in Rev. 17:18 is present tense! Rome was already reigning over the kings of the earth in John’s time. Rome at the time represented the Roman Empire. What does it represent today? The continuation of the Roman Empire: The Roman Catholic Church! The Popes are a continuation of the ceasars of Rome.”
