"All Slain on the 'EARTH' "

Augmented and clarified again, on 8/16/15

QUESTION:


Can you explained about the Harlot and how she is responsible and blood guilty for all slain on the earth ? Rev.18:24 (In light of your interpretation that the "Harlot" are those who break their covenant with God.)

REPLY:

Sure.

First I will just refer to Eze.44:7,
where it shows how that Covenant was broken.
(The covenant was for a priesthood, whose sacrifices would be clean and acceptable -Deut.10:8; 21:5; 1Chron.15:2; Rev.5:9-10; 1Pet.2:9). 
(Rom.2:29; 1Pet.2:5,9,10; Eph.5:27; 1Cor.3:16; 6:19; Rev.5:10) These broke that service agreement (Jer.33:21; Mal.2:5-9; 3:1-3), by the placing of counterfeit uncircumcised priests to care for the Temple and it's service to YHWH (Eze.44:8; Mark13:14; Dan.12:11).

In doing this, how is the Harlot guilty of shedding blood?
Through the Beast she rides (consisting of these counterfeit "Gentile" uncircumcised priests/princes;
she persecutes, dominates, and kills through them (John16:2; Rev.11:7; 13:15; 9:1,3,10; 2Thess.2:4; Dan.11:31; 2Chron.13:9).
("The Greatest Tribulation - What, and Why?")

Now to get to your question, of "ALL" blood being shed by this Harlot....
Just for a quick illustration...
If you have a bowl of fruit...let's say,,,apples, oranges, and bananas.
If you say "all the juice" of the apples, then you do not mean the juice of the oranges or bananas.
"But" you may say..., "Rev.18:24 does not limit whose blood we are talking about.".
True, but the Bible does.
If we really desire accurate understanding, we will not take this verse out of context,
but instead, we will seek the scriptures to know what was meant here.
Jesus tells us.
Please see the rest of the picture, at Matt.23:34,35,36,37.
Note especially Matt.23:35.
"All the blood" is mentioned here. But is it "all the blood" of everyone???
No.
All the righteous blood. Having "righteous" blood, is actually a rare possession (Rev.19:8).
If you compare Rev.18:24 to Rev.6:9; the word for "slaughtered" is the same. The Greek for "slain" infers shedding blood in martyrdom.
When Rev.18:24 lists 
"And in her was found the blood of prophets and saints, and of all who were slain on the earth.”; 
it is not saying that the "prophets and saints" are in addition to "all those slain"...
it is kindly giving us the meaning of "all those slain", AS the "prophets and saints". 
(see also Acts7:51,52,53)
Rev.18:24 does not say "all those slain in the world",
but rather, "in the earth" (Greek: "inhabited home" John 14:23). This symbol refers to those
in covenant with God, those within "Jerusalem" (Matt.23:37; Luke13:33; Matt.5:34,35; Acts.7:48,49,50) (Isa.60:1,13-14). [Note that the place where prophets are killed (Rev.18:24), must be within "Jerusalem" (Luke13:33)].
[Jehovah's "footstool" ("earth" which He "made" -Eph.2:10; Heb.3:6; 11:10; Isa.43:7; Acts17:24; Mark14:58; 1Cor.3:16; Acts7:49; Isa.60:13) The resting place of God's feet (the "earth"/"sanctuary", which He hath made -Eph.2:10; 2Cor.5:1; Heb.11:10; Ps.132:7-9), is not Satan's filthy world.]
In speaking of Zion, God said,
“All the descendants of those who oppressed you
will come bending low before you,
and all those who despised you
will bow down at your feet.
They’ll call you ‘The City of the Lord,’
‘Zion of the Holy One of Israel.’”
“He has given you the glory of Lebanon,
and it will come to you,
the cypress, and the plane tree, and the pine,
to adorn the place of MY SANCTUARY;
and I will make THE PLACE OF MY FEET, glorious." (Isa.60:14,13; Dan.8:11) (Matt.5:35)
Yes, God's resting place for His feet, is the "earth" (Acts 7:49),... His "sanctuary" of His Temple. 
We know that Temple cannot be made by human hands 
(Mark 14:58; Matt.16:18; Eph.2:20-22; Zech.4:9; 1Chron.22:10; Ps.2:6-8; Heb.1:5; 1Pet.2:5).

(Eph.2:10; Isa.29:23; 43:7,10,21; 1Pet.2:9)
In the Book of Revelation, Jesus told us that there would be a false prophet/two horned beast, from the "earth"/footstool/Temple sanctuary (Isa.66:1; Ps.132:7; Isa.60:13) (Rev.13:11,14-15; 19:20), who orders the deaths of the faithful (Rev.13:11,14-15; 11:7). Hopefully you can see from this, that when the WT interprets "all the blood shed on earth"
as meaning all those of Satan's world slaughtered in carnal warfare;
they are grossly mistaken. 
     Satan's world society is not the "earth" (Greek:"inhabited homeland"), 
     but is the "sea" (Isa.57:20; Jude 1:13; Rev.13:1).
     The symbols "earth" and "sea", are each a separate identity within scripture. 
     "Earth" does not have the same meaning as "sea".
     Satan's "sea" is his world, to which members of the "earth" 
     should not belong (John15:19). To the religious leaders of God's people, 
     Jesus said;
     "You are from below; I am from above. You are of this world (the "sea"/age/system); I am not of this world."
     ...and of his followers;
"I have given them your word and the world has hated them, for they are not of the world any more than I am of the world. They are not of the world, even as I am not of it." (John17:14,16).

These worldly pawns of Satan (the tumultuous "sea") who engage in carnal warfare and it's murder, do not hold within themselves, "righteous blood" (Exo.20:13), as the "earth" does.
There is no "righteous blood" in Satan's world, so Satan's world cannot be the same as the "earth", which does contain the "righteous blood" which is shed/martyred (Matt.23:35), and is the place where God rests His holy feet.
In God's eyes, the "sea" (and the physical world at carnal war) are already spiritually dead (Eph.2:1,2; Col.2:13 a). They cannot be "slain" (as righteous martyrs) within God's "footstool"/"earth"/Greek-"homeland".
"All" the blood "Jerusalem" sheds "on earth" (***Matt.23:35; Luke13:33; Rev.18:24), is the righteous blood of God's servants where His footstool resides (Isa.66:1; Lam.2:1; Matt.5:35; Ps.132:7-9).
It is they who apostatize from within God's "earth"/Greek-"homeland" ("Jerusalem"), who kill the faithful (see Matt.23:37,34-36,38) in the name of God. (Isa.66:5; Luke6:22; John16:2)
This is also the situation, in the time of the end (Rev.18:24; 13:11,15; 11:7; 6:9-11).
"Everyone" who kills God's prophets (Rev.18:24; 11:7), "imagines they are rendering a service to God" (John16:2). Is that true of the carnal warfare in Satan's world? Are God's prophets dying in worldly warfare? (Rev.18:24; Isa.1:21; Jer.4:31; Lam.2:1)
Do the political Nations in Satan's world, believe they are performing a service to God by killing anointed ones who practice neutrality? (John16:2)

You may wonder then, 
Who is the "Gentile" Beast (from the "sea"/"abyss" -Rev.13:1; 11:7) that the unfaithful anointed Harlots/false prophets use, to kill the faithful (Rev.13:11,15) (Rev.11:7) (Rev.17:6; 18:24)?
You may discern that, from a consideration of the scriptures contained in these three links...
(Symbolic death by "World")
("What is 'Jew' / 'Gentile'?")

("Abomination Causing Desolation")
in that order.
"Leviathan", is Lord of the "Sea"/abyss (Rev.9:11).
