The Harlot was Jerusalem
Clearly, the Harlot is physical Jerusalem. It was destroyed in 70 AD and eventually ploughed under in 135 AD.
Bible verifications for identifying historical Jerusalem as the great harlot:
2 Samuel 1:24
Daughters of Israel, weep for Saul, who clothed you in SCARLET AND LUXURY, who ADORNED YOUR GARMENTS WITH ORNAMENTS OF GOLD.
Now the woman was dressed in purple and SCARLET clothing, and DECKED WITH GOLD, PRECIOUS STONES, and pearls. She held in her hand a GOLDEN CUP filled with detestable things and unclean things from her sexual immorality.
...“Son of man, make known to Jerusalem her abominations... “Therefore, O PROSTITUTE, hear the word of the LORD: Thus says the Lord GOD, Because your lust was poured out and your nakedness uncovered in your whorings with your lovers... I will gather them against you from every side and will uncover your nakedness to them, that they may see all your nakedness... They shall STRIP YOU OF YOUR CLOTHES and TAKE YOUR BEAUTIFUL JEWELS and leave you NAKED AND DESOLATE.
The sound of harpists, musicians, flutists, and trumpeters shall not be heard in you anymore. No craftsman of any craft shall be found in you anymore, and the SOUND OF A MILLSTONE shall not be heard in you anymore. THE LIGHT OF A LAMP shall not shine in you anymore, and the VOICE OF A BRIDE AND BRIDEGROOM shall not be heard in you anymore. For your merchants were the great men of the earth, for by YOUR SORCERIES ALL NATIONS WERE DECEIVED.
Moreover, I will banish from them the SOUNDS OF JOY AND GLADNESS, the VOICES of the BRIDE AND BRIDEGROOM, the SOUND OF A MILLSTONE, and the LIGHT OF A LAMP.
The current Jerusalem is a sign that some with Jewish DNA are being called to be Christians. Luke 21:24 and Romans 11.
But Jerusalem is not holy and historically it disobeyed God and lost the covenant with God, which was conditional based on obedience, not grace. So now, the new heavenly Jerusalem is believers in Christ!
The New Zion is believers! Christians who have Jewish ancestors have no command to live in Israel! Physical Israel is just a sign that God is calling those descended from Jacob no matter how little DNA they have that is Jewish.
The New Law of Christ:
The New Law of Christ is God given faith to the end, not sinless perfection as required by the law of Moses. If we say we have no sin we are liars, but the goal of God given faith is holiness.
But those who believe in free will trust in a man generated faith. They see people who have their kind of faith falling away regularly. But the reason is, it is not the same faith that the Bible speaks about. Real faith is evidence of things unseen. Heb 11:1. Peter said he obtained faith. It is not obtained by everyone!
