I don't see any determination from the language itself that it is either willful
or non-willful. It is simply a fact. I would suppose it to be understood as
willing from the context of the narrative that it is willing, but I don't
suppose that it is a factor of the language itself. Note the use of the verb
βαστάζω in Re 2 in the sense of "to endure."
… search for truth, hear truth,
learn truth, love truth, speak the truth, hold the truth,
defend the truth till death.

...καὶ τοῦ θηρίου τοῦ βαστάζοντος αὐτήν.
...KAI TOU QHRIOU TOU BASTAZONTOS AUTHN
... and the beast who is bearing her.
Question: The use of the Greek participle in Rev 17:7, is it emphasizing
that the beast is willfully carrying the harlot?
