Revelation 17:15

‘The waters’ are the waves of ‘water’ at the top of the 7.
‘which thou sawest’ is John made into a 1 ‘looking’ at the water.
‘where the whore sitteth’ is the ‘woman sitting’ on the 7.
‘are peoples’ is the Revelation icon ‘R’ that sounds like ‘are’ and the equal sign for ‘are,’ & the 1 made into a man you can think of as his body and his head making a ‘p’ for ‘peoples.’  
‘and multitudes’ you can think these 2 men, made in a 17, are making the shape of a capital ‘M’ for ‘multitudes.’
‘and nations’ is a map made in a 17 to look like ‘nations’ with water and land. You can think the 1 & 7 almost make an ‘n’ for ‘nations.’
‘and tongues’ are the tongues drawn on the bottom 17 with the 1 made into a ‘Tongue’ & the 7 made into a man with a tongue, which makes a capitol ‘T’ shape at the top of the 7 for ‘tongues.’


For verse 15: a royal blue ‘1’ is made on the first tongue and a royal blue ‘5’ is drawn on the bottom of the next tongue going to the end of it and around the left side of the body of the person with the tongue.

God tells the big picture 1st and then gives more details as the chapters progress. So, the Revelation 13 beast rising up out of the sea, which is ‘water,’ means it rose up out of many people. Then in Revelation 17 more details are given that this beast, is actually a church that is over many people, & multitudes, and nations, and tongues.

Do waters in Bible prophecy represent  multitudes & nations? (nations)

Revelation 17:4

‘And the woman’ is the ‘woman’ on the 7.
‘was arrayed’ you can think of the 7 making ‘a ray’ with the Revelation icon ‘R’ for the ‘r’ in ‘arrayed’ & the big ‘a’ also for the ‘a’ in ‘arrayed.’
‘in purple and scarlet’ you can think of her dress as a mixture of ‘purple & scarlet.’
‘and decked with gold and precious stones and pearls’ you can think of as the ‘gold & precious stones & pearls’ on her dress & arms.
‘having a golden cup in her hand’ is the ‘golden cup in her hand,’ that you can think makes a 4 shape.


For verse 15: a royal blue ‘4’ is drawn on the purple / scarlet garment of the woman, & another royal blue ‘4’ is drawn on the bottom of the gold & precious stones & pearls on her arm, & another ‘4’ is made on the golden cup to remember the order of the items: the garment colours of purple & scarlet, the gold & stones & pearls, & then the golden cup.

So, some of the official people in this church will be dressed in ‘purple & scarle
