This morning we are going to finish our study of Revelation chapter 17 in this first session, and then we are going to continue studying other elements of the syllabus that we have not covered yet.
I just want to review a little bit on the river dragon concept that we find in Scripture, and specifically in Revelation chapter 17.
Somebody asked me yesterday whether it would be possible to conclude that there is a river dragon concept in Scripture, without going to the civilizations of antiquity to discover their view.
And I think that we have enough evidence that we could determine that even without the background from archaeology.

Anchor is a seminary-level course of study on the fundamentals of Seventh-day Adventist theology, taught by Pastor Stephen Bohr and guest theologians. Registration fee includes required text books and lecture handouts. Each student is responsible for his/her own daily meals, accommodations and transportation. ANCHOR’S MISSION STATEMENT The mission of ANCHOR is to settle students into the Truth both intellectually and spiritually so that they cannot be moved and to provide the theological skills to share with others the reason for the hope that is in them. “This hope we have as an anchor of the soul, both sure and steadfast, and which enters the Presence behind the veil, where the forerunner has entered for us, even Jesus, having become High Priest forever according to the order of Melchizedek.” Hebrews 6:19-20 “Many who embraced the third message had not had an experience in the two former messages. Satan understood this, and his evil eye was upon them to overthrow them; but the third angel was pointing them to the most holy place, and those who had had an experience in the past messages were pointing them the way to the heavenly sanctuary. Many saw the perfect chain of truth in the angels’ messages, and gladly received them in their order, and followed Jesus by faith into the heavenly sanctuary. These messages were represented to me as an anchor to the people of God. Those who understand and receive them will be kept from being swept away by the many delusions of Satan.” Early Writings, p. 256 (emphasis supplied)
If you go to Revelation chapter 12 you have a seven headed dragon; and it must have seven mouths, but only one mouth is spewing out water. So then you go to Revelation chapter 17 and it says that the heads are mountains, therefore what is it that’s spewing out waters?
It’s the mountains, and the harlot is seated on the many waters that are coming from the mountains, or the heads, so if you took revelation 12, 13, and 17 and you put together all the idea of the heads and the mountains and the waters, I believe that you could actually figure it out without necessarily going to archaeology.
