Revelation 17:1-18:

And there came one of the seven Angels, which have the seven vials and talked with me, saying unto me, Come hither; I will shew unto thee the judgement of the great whore (this humanity) that sitteth upon many waters:

With whom the kings of the earth have committed Fornication, and the inhabiters of the earth have been made drunk with the wine of her Fornication.

So he carried me away in the spirit into the wilderness: and I saw a woman sit upon a scarlet colour beast (the great beast whose number is 666), full of names of blasphemy, having seven heads and ten horns. (The seven heads of the beast are the seven capital sins. The ten horns signify that this beast ascends and will tumble into the abyss.)

And the woman (the great whore [humanity]) was arrayed in purple and scarlet colour (this is how this humanity is symbolized in the internal worlds), and decked with gold and precious stones and pearls, having a golden cup in her hand full of abominations and filthiness of her Fornication:

And upon her forehead was a name written, Mystery, Babylon the great, the mother of harlots and abominations of the earth.

And I saw the woman drunken with the blood of the saints, and with the blood of the martyrs of Jesus: and when I saw her, I wondered with great admiration.

And the Angel said unto me, Wherefore didst thou marvel? I will tell thee the mystery of the woman, and of the beast that carrieth her, which hath the seven heads and ten horns.

The beast that thou sawest was, and is not; and shall ascend out of the bottomless pit, and go into perdition: and they that dwell on the earth shall wonder, whose names were not written in the book of life from the foundation of the world, when they behold the beast that was, and is not, and yet is.

And here is the mind which hath wisdom. The seven heads are seven mountains, on which the woman sitteth. (The seven capital sins, Anger, Greed, Lust, Envy, Pride, Laziness, Gluttony, are related with the seven sub-planes or tenebrous regions of the abyss. These are the seven mountains on which the great whore is seated.)

And there are seven kings (the seven kings of Edom): five are fallen, and one is, and the other is not yet come; and when he cometh, he must continue a short space.

The five inferior principles are: Soul, Mind, Astral body, Ethereal Body, and Physical Body; these five principles are fallen, that is to say, the human being is fallen.

The sixth principle (Conscience Soul), or Buddhi, never falls. This principle will govern the sixth Root Race.

When the kingdom of the seventh principle comes, it will continue for a short space of time. During that period, a divine race will exist. This will be the seventh Root Race. The seventh principle is the Innermost.

And the beast that was, and is not, even he is the eight, and is of the seven, and goeth into perdition.

This beast that was, and is not, and that even he is the eight, is the shadow of the seven Sephiroth; this is the abyss.

And the ten horns which thou sawest are ten kings, which have received no kingdom as yet; but receive power as kings one hour with the beast.

The ten horns of the tragic wheel will ascend and will descend; they will rotate with the wheel of compensation. These ten horns ascend from the abyss, they impose themselves and command like ten kings, in order to tumble into the abyss when the wheel of nemesis (compensation or Samsara) is accomplishing its fatal rotation.

These (ten horns) have one mind, and shall give their power and strength unto the beast.

These shall make war with the Lamb, and the Lamb shall overcome them: for he is Lord of lords, and King of kings: and they that are with him are called, and chosen, and faithful.

And he saith unto me, The waters which thou sawest, where the whore sitteth, are peoples, and multitudes, and nations, and tongues.

And the ten horns which thou sawest upon the beast, these shall hate the whore, and shall make her desolate and naked, and shall eat her flesh, and burn her with fire.

When the fatal wheel of compensation rotates, this whore (humanity) will be desolate and naked and the ten tragic horns will eat her flesh and burn her with the fire of their Fornication, within the darkness of the abyss.

For God hath put in their hearts to fulfil his will, and to agree, and give their kingdom unto the beast, until the words of God shall be fulfilled.

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

This tragic, great city is Babylon the great, the mother of harlots and abominations of the Earth, that is to say, this perverse, modern civilization.

Woe to those who do not listen to the written words in this book!

Woe to the dwellers of the Earth!

Woe, woe, to those who betray the work of my Father!
