Today we read one chapter of Revelation and the first chapter of Malachi.
Revelation 17. So begins the telling of the fall of Babylon. It is not Rome, nor is it Roman Catholicism. In my opinion it is the coalition of communism, socialism, Islam and social justice Christianity in the form of Globalism, implementing Global Governance. This is represented by the scarlet woman and the scarlet basket. The meaning of the woman and the basket is then explained in prophecy. (You are welcome to interpret the prophesies otherwise).
Malachi 1. God loves Israel, but Israel responded with insincere and polluted offerings.
