If God’s Holy City was originally Jerusalem, then Satan’s Hell City was originally Babylon. In their original glories, each represented two opposing ways of life. And every time the People of the Covenant fell in love with idol worship, breaking their vow with God, they were punished with death and slavery. As one nation of Israel, they were in slavery in Egypt. Later, the Northern Kingdom of Israel, made up of the 10 “lost” tribes, broke her vows and was carted off to Assyria. Then, the Southern Kingdom, made up of the 2-tribed House of Judah, also broke her vows and was carted off to Babylon. If “Babylon” is what they wanted, then they most certainly got it when the Babylonians seized and destroyed their capital city Jerusalem, including the Temple, in 588 BC. And shortly after, this force, which had already overcome Assyria, would also overcome Egypt.
In Babylon, things were hustling and bustling with the riches of its new conquests. Under the Chaldean king Nebuchadnezzar’s rule, the city grew into a mighty metropolis. The Bible describes it as a city of merchants and the land of traffick. According to Greek historian Herodotus, it had stupendous walls surrounding it with a broad and deep moat that included massive gates of brass. The palace therein was also a splendid fortress. Babylon was a world centre of idolatry, with tons of solid gold statues and temples fashioned in gold décor. It is called the golden city in Isaiah 14:4. Gold also represents the Babylonian Empire in Daniel 2:38, when he interprets Nebuchadnezzar’s dream. In fact, the king had set up a 90-foot image of gold; then gathered the judges, counselors, treasurers, captains, sheriffs of the provinces to enforce his new legislation: everyone was to bow down before a golden image when they heard the “bells and whistles” to do so.
In a “see-something, say something” kind-of-mood, certain Chaldeans saw that three prominent men of God weren’t in compliance and reported them. These three were sent to the furnace; but because they demonstrated unwavering faith, not willing to break God’s Law, they were able to dance in the fire with an Angel who protected them. Recognizing God’s power, the king promoted them.
While gold represented the Babylonian Empire, Daniel also saw the kingdoms to come from Nebuchadnezzar’s dream: the Mede-Persian being silver; the Greek being brass; the Roman being iron, which would become divided into the Eastern and Western Roman Empires; and lastly the Kingdom of Heaven, with its Stone destroying the previous empires – just as a diamond stone, which reflects light, is indestructible and can grind metals to powder (Daniel 2:37-45). Daniel also knew Nebuchadnezzar was condemned for self-exalting himself, boasting about all the things he had built, “Is not this great Babylon, that I have built for the house of the kingdom by the might of my power, and for the honour of my majesty? (Daniel 4:30).”
After the Mede-Persian invasion, the new king Cyrus made Daniel one of three presidents. Daniel’s interpretations and his excellent spirit made him very well respected, over magicians, Chaldeans, and soothsayers. When Cyrus wanted to set Daniel over the whole realm, the others were jealous and plotted against him. These snakes convinced the king to legislate a ban on prayer for a month to anyone but Cyrus. Of course, they planned to witness against Daniel, knowing he would not stop praying to God. The king was grieved, but being proud, allowed them to throw Daniel into a den of lions. With unwavering faith, and not willing to submit to man’s silly legislation over God’s Law, Daniel entered the den; and an Angel protected him. Those who concocted the silly rule were thrown into the den of lions and devoured, along with their families. We’d see this scheme play out again with chief priests, lawyers and elders becoming snakes plotting against Jesus; and convincing Pontius Pilate to convict Him of blasphemy. It’s a never-ending tale of lies (a dragon’s tail/tale), because history has shown us that a few serpents will always plot and plan against us, as they CONvince leaders to pass silly legislation and pay policy-officers to enforce it.
Using members of his Synagogue, beast system and whore-house, Satan, the Great Opposer, plots and plans against us. He is the little red devil on their left shoulders who convinces them they are “grand”. All of their tactics are really about destroying the People of the Covenant, the People Israel – the 12 tribes around the world. Satan and his cohorts know where the lost tribes of Israel are, even if they themselves don’t. Why is this destruction their mission? It’s about trying to prevent the fulfillment of God’s prophecies, especially the one about Satan and them going into the pit. All of God’s prophets set out to FULFILL His prophecies. The Heavenly Angels watching us also fulfill them. Satan’s game-plan has been about “taking over” the world, replacing everything good with evil. The Tree of Life is about goodness, being good like the “I AM” is. The Knowledge of Good and Evil gives us wisdom about the forbidden fruit –Evil – being evil. In order to get us to digest evil, as it’s an acquired taste; Satan’s had to do it in courses. The appetizer: snake, slithered in applesauce.
“You’re Invited to a Grand Illusion”
Place: Babylon. Where is this? First, let’s travel back. The ancient city-state of Babylon geographically existed about 53 miles south of Bagdad, Iraq, between the Tigris and Euphrates Rivers. It’s where the U.S military built “Camp Alpha”, following the invasion of Iraq in 2003. But Babylon isn’t Alpha, God is. Just like Nebuchadnezzar, Saddam Hussein exalted himself. He had been in the process of rebuilding the original site, having placed a huge portrait of himself and king Nebuchadnezzar at the entrance to the ruins, and shored up Processional Way, a large boulevard made of ancient stones, and the Lion of Babylon, an ancient black rock sculpture. Also following in the ancient king’s footsteps, Saddam had bricks inscribed with his own name, where one reoccurring inscription read: “This was built by Saddam Hussein, son of Nebuchadnezzar, to glorify Iraq”. Iraq was also known for statues and portraits of Saddam, no doubt as symbols to “worship” him. It probably wasn’t a smart move on his part, because it obviously didn’t work out for Nebuchadnezzar. It didn’t work out for an archeological excavation of the site in the mid-1800s either, as 40 crates of artifacts sank into the Tigris River.
With the kingdoms and conquests that would rule the Mesopotamian area, including Jerusalem and Babylon, a fusion of gods and idol worship would emerge. The Babylonian goddess Ishtar would fuse with Egyptian goddess Isis and Greek goddess Aphrodite. It was worshipping Ishtar as the “queen of heaven” that Jeremiah warned Jerusalem about, because they petitioned her, lit candles, burned incense, baked cakes/wafers to her, and left gifts at her statues’ images. All these things angered God, as they ignored His First and Second Commandments. Many believe the Catholic Church began in Babylon, even as Iraqi former foreign minister and Deputy Prime Minister Tariq Aziz said. He is a Chaldean Catholic, whose Church’s emblem has the inscription “Patriarch: Babylonens: Chaldeorum”. After some history and church politics, Chaldean Catholics are in communion with the Roman Catholic Church and its patriarch resides in Bagdad. Since the 2003 Iraqi Invasion, these Eastern Catholics in the Middle East, and even Slavic countries, have been persecuted because “anti-Christian” emotions have risen. Today, Catholics still worship their “queen of heaven”. Yes, they have officially named their Madonna Virgin Mary the “queen of heaven”, fusing her into a female deity. They also continue many pagan rituals; such as festival days to saints, even declaring one saint is over animals and one is over travel and such. There is One God, not many. Christ said to worship our Heavenly Father ONLY, not a human female or statues of dead people.
Under the Mede-Persian Rule, the Temple in Jerusalem was rebuilt as Jews were allowed to return, but the Jews who returned were met by Idumean-Jews, converts who kept a Talmudic doctrine, which actually originated in Babylon long before. Next, Alexander the Great overcame the area, but didn’t enter and take over their homes. Under his rule, Babylon became a center of learning and commerce. Although after his death, it became divided and many inhabitants were deported or fled. And many would end up in Rome.
The Roman Empire would be the next to invade the area seizing all and destroying the Temple in Jerusalem the second time, in 70 A.D. The Koran gives us a clue that the Romans and Babylonians are the same race. Koran Sura 17:5-7: “When the first of the warnings came to pass, We sent against you (Jerusalem) Our servants given to terrible warfare (the Babylonians – king Nebuchadnezzar)… If ye did well, ye did well for yourselves; if ye did evil, (ye did it) against yourselves. So when the second of the warnings came to pass, (We permitted your enemies) to disfigure your faces, and to enter your Temple as they had entered it BEFORE, and to visit with destruction all that fell into their power.”
Jerusalem was destroyed for the second time because they had crucified Jesus’ human body and didn’t recognize Christ as their true King and High Priest. The enemy, the Roman Empire, was brought in to destroy it. The inhabitants of Jerusalem were killed or enslaved, but some were able to flee to Prussia and elsewhere. After its conquest of Jerusalem, Rome built its Coliseum with funds from the spoils of the Temple. The Coliseum could hold a minimum of 50,000 spectators to watch public executions, gladiators, battle re-enactments and more. With its pantheon of gods, Rome was full of idol worship, sexual perversions, and commerce. It had become the new city of merchants in the land of traffick. Rome was the center of the world in many respects. Hence the expression: “All roads lead to Rome”. Interestingly, the Roman Empire is known as a Republic, and many Republic governments today fashion themselves after it. The Romans are also known for their architecture and many official buildings look Roman – with columns, statues and murals.
The Next Course of Action – Catholicism
While some Chaldeans and others claim the Catholic Church started in Babylon, the Roman Catholic Church claims that Simon Peter is the founder of the movement, being its first unofficial, or honorary pope. The Roman Catholic Church claimed that after Jesus’ ascension, Simon Peter went to Rome to preach the gospel. But there are all kinds of problems with this claim – with the first being that Simon Peter NEVER went to Rome. And they claim he was buried in Rome. However around 1960, his tomb was found, or revealed, to be in Jerusalem. Paul went to Rome, to preach the gospel. He was against the new Christianity being set up there, as he was a Covenanter – one that followed God’s Law or covenants, as commanded by his Savior Christ. The disciples were already having to warn against this fake religion “with another gospel”, fusing Christ’s message with Babylonian paganism, as Paul points out in his letters to the Galatians, in Second Thessalonians, and more. It’s probably why he was a legendary rival of Simon PATER, the sorcerer, who actually did go to Rome to set up house. Smoke and mirrors.
Why the confusion? Interestingly, Babel means “confusion” in Hebrew from which the word Babylon is derived. And catholic means “universal”. A universal church was created in Rome, and it wanted one religion from the start. It’s always been about money and power; and the church has operated as a dynasty throughout the centuries, manipulating the Truth for worldly gain. They became so powerful that they essentially ruled the conquered lands instead of kings, becoming legislators, judges and executioners. As Romans, they first went after the Covenanters or true followers of Christ. Many martyrs were executed in Rome, in the Coliseum, as spectators watched. Now, they claim that the Coliseum wasn’t used for executions of martyrs, which is odd because these executions were considered entertainment. More telling is that in 1749, Pope Benedict XIV consecrated the Coliseum as a sacred site where early Christians had been martyred. “And I saw the woman drunken with the blood of her saints, and with the blood of the martyrs of Jesus: and when I saw her, I wondered with great admiration (Rev. 17:6).” They were executed in Rome.
“MENE, MENE, TEKEL, UPHARSIN” (Daniel 5:25) can be interpreted to mean “The writing is on the wall; Babylon’s days are numbered.” Babylon the Great, the New Babylon of Rome with its golden fortress, Vatican City, will fall again. She is slowly being brought out into the light and her sins aren’t so hidden, or secret, anymore. As more and more is revealed about her deceptions and sins, she will become hated. And it will be interesting to see who actually burns her down as prophecies of the end of this age unfold.
The Roman Catholic Church would eventually legislate against Jews, going after their wealth, as they too had learned banking, trade and commerce. In the Spanish Inquisition, the Jews were essentially robbed of their wealth and made desolate. This didn’t settle well with them and the Sanhedrin devised a plan to take over the Christian world, as outlined in “The Protocols of the Elders of Zion, Proof of an Ancient Conspiracy” by Ivan Fraser. The Sanhedrin told them to convert to Christianity and become its leaders and experts in order to bring them down and regain their power and wealth. There’s one thing the Catholic Church and the converted Jews have in common – Babylon.
The Main Course – the Babylonian Talmud
If Babylon was Satan’s Hell City, then the Babylonian Talmud was his bible. Talmud means “Traditions of the Elders” or “Traditions of the Fathers” – traditions of men, listening to Satan, not God. Christ warned against these traditions, as He understood the plots of men. The snakes who plotted against Him were not from the House of Judah, but Idumean-converts who moved into a vacated Jerusalem when the real House of Judah went into slavery in Babylon. “Howbeit in vain do they worship me, teaching [for] doctrines the commandments of men. For laying aside the COMMANDment of God, ye hold the “Tradition” of men, [as] the washing of pots and cups: and many other such like things ye do. And he said unto them, Full well ye reject the COMMANDment of God, that ye may keep your own “Tradition”. For Moses said, Honour thy father and thy mother; and, Whoso curseth father or mother, let him die the death (Mark 7:7-10).” Jesus meant our Father in Heaven, not a cloaked wizard in a confessional booth or one who sits on a giant golden throne. He meant our mother “Israel”, a nation bound to God and metaphorically His wife. Israel was to keep her vows, the Covenants, not turn into an adulteress whore.
The Roman Catholic Church has its “Apostolic Fathers” and their traditions of men; the Jews have their Talmud and their own traditions of men. Muslims didn’t escape Babylon’s influence either. They are in the mix, as the Hadith is also translated to the “Tradition of the Elders or Fathers”. It’s incredible how often man will continue to follow “tradition” for tradition sake, even if it leads him desolate or to The Fire. He doesn’t mind, though, as long as he is thoroughly entertained along the way. Man is defiant and corrupt – traditionally, he chooses to be evil. He continues to listen to little snakes who make their own rules, instead of listening to and obeying Father.
When Jesus said to talk with Father alone with no one present, He didn’t mean a traditional priest or rabbi in a long robe was to intercede. “But be not ye called priest (etc.): for One is your Teacher, [even] Christ; and all ye are brethren. And call no [man] your father upon the earth: for one is your Father, which is in heaven. (Matt. 23: 8-9).” If Jesus commanded this, it is most unlikely Simon Peter went to Rome and started a priesthood. Why do priests like to be called father? Even John Paul in his book “Crossing The Threshold of Hope” wrote, “Be not afraid to call me Holy Father” and encouraged others to follow the traditions of men. Seriously! Is not the writing on the wall? Who would want to replace our Father in Heaven? Oh, Satan. He likes to exalt himself above God and get men to do it too. But we know his tactics will be revealed. “Let no man deceive you by any means: for [that day (the Day of Christ) shall not come], except there come a falling away first, and that man of sin be revealed, the son of the Destroyer (son of Satan); Who opposeth and exalteth himself above all that is called God, or that is worshipped; so that he as God sitteth in the temple of God, showing himself that he is God [the Holy Father]) (2 Thess. 2:3-4).” According to Revelation, the New Babylon’s days are numbered too. It’s full of golden temples, statues, pagan rituals and man-made doctrine [not to mention accusations by thousands of people for child-abuse and crimes against humanity].
A New Roman Empire did live, although it was wounded (Rev. 13:14). Hitler and his snake-handlers revived the military empire, even using its banner emblems of the eagle and swastika. Germany, Austria, Russia and Italy are all associated with this style of eagle, which can also be symbolically found in Egypt. This new empire would again “acquire” the wealth of Talmudic Jews. Their wealth was confiscated and absorbed into the empire, simply by labeling and eliminating them. It’s not uncommon for thieves to steal from their own. What’s interesting now is that many believe the Catholic Jesuits are actually Talmudic Jews in disguise, like their founder Ignatius Loyola. If Talmudic Jews were diligent in following the Sanhedrin’s advice, this belief isn’t so far fetched, because they’ve had plenty of time to infiltrate and influence the world, being military-styled operatives – even their leaders being called generals, and their supreme general being referred to as the black pope. The Jesuits understand trade and commerce. They were the ones on the black ships in the Far East, “obtaining” valuable resources, while telling everyone else the world was flat, until Columbus let the cat out of the bag. They even legislated that any belief otherwise was punishable by death. People didn’t want to be labeled a heretic any more than they want to be labeled a dissident today – for disobeying the legislation that protects the greedy and their interests. Another note is that Hitler wanted to replace Bibles with his Mein Kampf and crosses with swastikas. It also makes one wonder about World Bank whistleblower Karen Hudes’ comment that IRS payments go to the Vatican. Or that there’s weight to the rumor that Fatima’s third communication actually revealed that Satan would be ruling the world through the Vatican.
Some also believe that Simon PATER-Peter was originally buried on a pagan cemetery knoll called “Vaticanus”; and in Latin “vatic” means a prophet or soothsayer. Legend has it that Simon PATER went to Rome after being reprimanded by John and Simon Peter bar Jonah for trying to buy the ability to impart the Holy Spirit. This Simon PATER was a well-known wizard: “But there was a certain man, called Simon (PATER), which beforetime in the same city used sorcery, and bewitched the people of Samaria, giving out that himself was some great one: To whom they all gave heed, from the least to the greatest, saying, This man is the great power of God. And to him they had regard, because that of long time he had bewitched them with sorceries (Acts 8:9-11).” Because some of PATER’s followers believed the gospel through Philip’s teaching, PATER also learned Christ’s message and was baptized. Some historical writings place Simon PATER in Rome, telling them that he was the Son of the Living God, exalting himself. With his knowledge of witchcraft; his knowledge of pagan gods; his knowledge of Christ’s message, along with his belief that he was some sort of great one, it is more likely than not that Simon PATER is the founder of Catholicism. Who would want to replace Christ? Oh, Satan.
Because “Peter” is actually a title, it is likely PATER’s name was changed to Peter; and a SPIN put on both their lives, obscuring PATER’s. Then, the Catholic apologetics come along with all kinds of writings and interpretations to discredit other forms of beliefs contrary to their own, and the word “heretic” is thrown around as much as “terrorist” is today. The Catholics can pretend popes are God or Christ (vicar means substitute) and document their lies and interpretations in their many encyclopedias, but Satan will never replace God and Simon PATER will never replace Christ. God is the Omega and He will have the last Word, not the Vatican. When looking at Simon PATER as a wizard, a sorcerer, it’s not hard to fathom why popes, bishops, cardinals and even rabbis wear cloaks and carry wands. It’s also not surprising that stories are out about the Satanic cults at play in the world, or their pagan rituals, even stories related to hidden power-groups operating the world in their “power-cells”.
The mystery religion isn’t such a mystery at all. Even Nostradamus predicted Christ would put an end to Rome: “He who will be charged with the destruction of temples and sectes, all diverted by fantasy: He will harm the Peterans rather than the Living, Those ears filled with repetitious ornate speeches” (Quatrain 1,96). “Temples consecrated in the original Roman manner, They will reject the Abyss foundations (warning), Taking their own first and human laws, Chasing, though not entirely, the cult of saints.” (Quatrain 2,8).
Change the Menu
Everyone will get his just desserts. Instead of being intoxicated with the whore’s lies, sober up. Eat the Bread of Life, Christ’s real and true message about God, our Father. All the kings, the ten horns (kingdoms) of the 10 lost tribes have been way too cozy with Satan’s whore, Synagogue and beast for way too long. It’s time to come out of her. “For the bread of God is he which cometh down from heaven, and giveth Life unto the world… And Jesus said unto them, I am the bread of life: he that cometh to me shall never hunger; and he that believeth me shall never thirst (John 6:33-35).” When someone finds the real Truth, he won’t thirst or hunger for it again.
Christ says He will kill all Catholics with death, in Revelation 2:20-23, unless they come out – Revelation 18:4.
