No, that is not a Latin phrase used in exorcisms…but rather, it means “my friend, the enemy of my enemy” or more commonly quoted as “the enemy of my enemy is my friend”. As I am quoting ancient Latin, I might as well go all in and quote Shakespeare as well — “Misery acquaints a man with strange bedfellows.”, which is more commonly used as “politics makes strange bedfellows”.
I bring this up as this site has been arguing that the destruction of the Whore is one of the next events on the timeline of the prophecies of Revelation (please see previous posts for more in-depth discussion). Revelation does not offer many clues as to how the Whore will be destroyed, however, I would like to briefly speculate on this point.
The Whore of Babylon is an abomination in the sight of God, as all of Heaven will celebrate in her downfall (Revelation 19:1-3). Given this, the Whore is an enemy to all Believers, in so far as we can have enemies. Also, we are told in Revelation 17:16, that the 10 horns of the Beast will also come to see the Whore as their enemy. So perhaps, though only in the briefest of moments, it may come to pass that Believers and the Beast may actually come together as “friends” to bring about the downfall of the Whore. As the saying goes, politics makes strange bedfellows.
An enlightened Beast would understand that Believers will be raptured to heaven soon after the Whore is destroyed (please see previous posts as this interpretation of scripture is not exactly straight forward), so once the Whore is taken care of, Believers will soon also disappear from this world.
We are in the midst of the End of Days, so even the most improbable of events can become reality all too frequently. DTTW.
