First, I want to STRONGLY stress that I am NOT guaranteeing or predicting that this will in fact happen, I am merely stating that it could happen. I have studied Revelation 17 and 18 for a long time and I believe that it is possible that the events of those parts of the Bible may happen soon.

Hi there RedCloak,
I'm thinking more along the lines of a Spring setting. Here's why......
You have the Jewish Calendar that starts in Spring.
SPRING SUMMER FALL WINTER
1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 11 12
The month of Nisan, being the first month, is what Jehovah switched the Calendar to during Moses' days. The Kings of Israel counted their Regnal years from Spring to Spring. The Egyptians from Summer to Summer. The Babylonians also had a Spring to Spring method.
If you read Song of Solomon 2:8-17, you will see what time Jesus calls for his bride to be with him. Its during the dry season after the first few months of the rainy Spring season.,
Jeremiah the Prophet helps pinpoint this time period to Pentecost when they received the Law Covenant.The nation said "WE DO" in a rich symboilc way. The mountain also can take rich symbolic meaning as being a marriage altar, or chuppa, and moses bringing the marriage covenant back with him. Jeremiah 2:1-3, 8:7
Note the time when the birds come migrating in......spring-time 8:7
The burning of the prostitute happens BEFORE the marriage of the true bride.Only the Father knows when this time will come. It will be quick,swift and all encompassing.
Luke 21:29-31 late spring,early summer
Genesis 3:7 summer, for full leaf figs
Daniel 2:35 summer threshing floor
Jeremiah 52:12 mid-summer 5th Jewish Month
All these scriptures have a summer theme to them. This would seem when the finale is pushed to a completion.In Summer-time.
I study History alot.Here are some other clues to the puzzle.
Spring-time of 1521, Martin Luther is at the Diet of Worms.He appears before the Papacy and Rulers of the time to give a witness to truth.
Summer-time of 1521,Fall of Tenochtitlan (Hernan Cortez)
Around this time,Christendom was divided. Also the Conquest by the Conquistadors was being felt by the Aztecs. The Church went in and set up Catholicism.
There Could be a 490 year period here somehow from 1517-1521 to 2007-2011. Only after all is said and done, will we be able to look back and make the connections. 70x7, the same number used in the coming of Christ in the 1st Century.

Didnt it say that the great whore is drunken from the shed blood of the saints? I havent seen world wide persecution and execution of Christians yet. I mean there is verbal abuse and some executions in some country's.
The way I interpret it is that it's world wide persecution unto death. Now I can only speak from my American view point, but we havent even SEEN persecution on that scale as of yet.
