Because the whore of Rev 17 is wearing jewelry, and purple and scarlet, and is drinking wine, is a very weak reason for us refraining from doing so.The Bible text gives much better reason; for it shows us God's will in writing--there is no guess work in that.It is true, the woman in Rev 12 is clothed with the sun. She represents Christ's church on earth. The church is to be pure and undefiled. The church and its member are not to appear as the people of the world; not as the whore in Rev 17.I say again; there is nothing wrong with colors. Because evil people drive cars, are Christians not allowed to drive cars? Because wine makes people drunk, are Christians not allowed to drink water or fruit juice?Wearing purple or scarlet does not mean we are joining the enemy or approving of what they do.The Bible says nothing against wearing colors.The Bible does speak against wearing jewelry of any kind,

rev17 The Angel is talking in the past tense. What had already happened to Rome. To show what God is capable of. It is describing the Rome of the Caesars. Especially Nero. Rev 12 is Mary. The Dragon after all is the serpent without legs. In Genesis Where God tells the serpent "I will put enmity between your offspring and hers; He will strike at your head while you strike at his heel." The key word there is He not them. Singular, this is the first prophecy of Christ. Also At that time even in with the Jewish culture. It was the Queen Mother, The Kings mother not wife, that sat at his right hand. People knew that if they wanted a special favor to ask the Queen Mother and she could intercede, or ask for the favor. It was still up to the King to say yes or no. Revelations is a complex book, It goes back and forth from the past to the future. Explaining what has happened and what could happen.

I would walk away from this discussion. People who are certain that they understand exactly what is meant by Revelation are NUT JOBS. Now some theories seem to have a bit of truth to them. But the ones who think they have it ALL figured out are the ones who convince others to drink poison koolaid! Just walk away.
