Silk

Silk is a natural fiber that is produced by the silkworm while making its cocoon. It has been used by humans since the most ancient times to make a very fine fabric. Some translations of the Bible use silk for the Old Testament Hebrew words pronounced meh-shee and shesh-ee, which actually may have meant very fine Linen. The one certain mention of silk in the Bible is in the New Testament to translate the Greek word which literally means silk, the root of which is also the Greek word for China, where much of the world's silk was and is produced.

"Fallen, fallen is Babylon the great!"

Pope The only certain mention of silk in the Bible relates to the fall of "Babylon," which together means a great false Christian church that has persecuted and martyred true Christians for nearly 2,000 years (e.g Revelation 18:20), as well as the world's political and economic systems that are generally based on breaking God's Law (i.e. The Ten Commandments - see also The Ten Commandments Now?) against wanton greed, dishonesty and coveting (e.g. the verses below).

Fact Finder: At The Return Of Jesus Christ, will the present world's religious, political and economic systems be replaced with direct rule by Jesus Christ and The Elect?
