217 And it came to pass that when the angel had spoken these words, he said unto me, Remember thou the covenants of the Father unto the house of Israel?
218 I said unto him, Yea.
219 And it came to pass that he said unto me, Look and behold that great and abominable church, which is the mother of abominations, whose founder is the devil.
220 And he said unto me, Behold, there are save two churches only:
221 The one is the church of the Lamb of God, and the other is the church of the devil;
222 Wherefore, whoso belongeth not to the church of the Lamb of God belongeth to that great church, which is the mother of abominations;
223 And she is the whore of all the earth.
224 And it came to pass that I looked and beheld the whore of all the earth, and she sat upon many waters;
225 And she had dominion over all the earth, among all nations, kindreds, tongues and people.

233 And as there began to be wars and rumors of wars among all the nations which belonged to the mother of abominations, the angel spake unto me, saying,
234 Behold, the wrath of God is upon the mother of harlots;
235 And behold, thou seest all these things;

"Yea, when ye shall call upon the Father in my name, with a broken heart and a contrite spirit, then shall ye know that the Father hath remembered the covenant which he made unto your fathers, O house of Israel;"
