Realization of Prophetic Visions

By Philip Mark Ames

Golden Cup

And what is the golden cup in her hand? It is the means by which she puts people into a drunken stupor. The intoxicating abominations and filth which she makes them drink are served in a golden cup. The cup looks pretty, so they drink its contents; they lose self control, and she takes their money.

The golden cup is the appealing way in which she advertises her wares; the wine is the advertisement itself. How many people would use tobacco if they had never seen it advertised? How much money would they have spent on deodorants, cosmetics, cars, etc., if the commercials did not look and sound so appealing?

How much of your hard-earned money have you foolishly paid to the super-rich for things you didn't need or even want? Were you seduced by the great harlot's wine, taken into her parlor, and robbed by her agents? What satisfaction has she ever given you? But, all that is not the limit of her evil.
