Rev. 17

Rev. 17:6

And I saw the woman drunk with the blood of the saints, and with the blood of the witnesses of Jesus. And when I saw her, I wondered greatly. [NASB]

My Translation
[my translatio]
καὶ εἶδον τὴν γυναῖκα μεθύουσαν ἐκ τοῦ αἵματος τῶν ἁγίων καὶ ἐκ τοῦ αἵματος τῶν μαρτύρων Ἰησοῦ καὶ ἐθαύμασα ἰδὼν αὐτὴν θαῦμα μέγα


Drunk with the blood of the saints --

On the outside, she is a beautifully adorned woman. But she is deceptive. Don't let her looks deceive you.

The blood on her hands is evidence of the woman's true nature, her true goal. Her reasons may vary, but her objective is always the same, to destroy Jesus and all those who call on His name. She uses every tool in her arsenal to accomplish her goal: deception, temptation, character assassination, and brute force. She is consumed with her anger and intense hatred, but she keeps it hidden from the public.
