It STILL is effecting the world in many of the same ways today. It had and still has far more of an effect than most will ever realize.
For sure. I do not disagree with that. Just like the USA at times is effecting the world in destructive ways and has far more of an effect than most realize.
The problem with all of this is that the Cabalist :
-- are controlling the US government via their monster corporations, Bankings and the Federals Reserve which they own. See the new discussion topic on this site named [LINK REMOVED PER RULES]
-- has infiltrated the Catholic Church via Loyola(Jesuit) and are its true head. : “The Illuminati Order was preceded in the 1500's in Spain by the "Alumbrados," a Christian heresy started by crypto Jews called "Marranos." The founder of the Jesuit Order, Ignatius of Loyola, was a Marrano . (114) Thus when people today argue whether it is the Jesuits or the Illuminati who are responsible for our troubles, they are really talking about the same beast.
-- are the head of the Masons: "According to Still, after this agreement in 1782, the headquarters of “Illuminized” European Freemasonry was moved to the Rothschilds’ home town of Frankfurt -- and was securely within their control.
(*** I have posted some history and resources about this at the other topic http://www.gracecentered.com/christian_forums/end-times-forum/mystery-babylon-and-the-cabalists/
We need to realize the nature of the beast and its power and effect on other entities. So just as some courageous USA citizens are taking on the challenge to free their own country, we shouldn't be criticizing them for all the unholy things their controlled leaders are currently doing in the world. America needs to be freed from the Cabalist controls. It's the same with the Catholic Church. They need to be freed also and were in captivity before America. And most denominations(if not all) today also have levels of infiltration more than we know and imagine.
The real crux of it all is --- why did G-d allow this beast to control America, other countries, our churches, etc...?
We need to recognize G-d's hand in all of this instead of blaming whoever. Nothing by-pass His hand. Not one hair from our head can fall without His permission. So we need to ask G-d why he allowed this beast(2nd beast of Rev 13) to rule the world?
To my understanding, it is because, we, Christian citizens (wherever country we reside) :
(2)did not study the Word of G-d for ourselves but instead we let others tell us what it said,
(3)did not seek to hear the voice of G-d for ourselves(the Isrealite did the same thing in Ex 20:17 when they refused to hear God speak to them directly and wanted Moses to tell them what G-d said instead,
(4)did not seek to Know G-d's righteousness and His ways, and so
(5)we failed to implement or maintain G-d's ways into our countries government.
(6)and so our silence or lack of interest made it easy
(7) for the 2nd beast of Rev 13 to take over.
So really, it is G-d that put us into captivity -- slaves in a socialist type government under the disguise of "capitalist" -- and we have lost our freedom. This happen in G-d's wisdom to awake us so we can come to value G-d’s laws(ways), and to learn from history so that it will never happen again.
So at the end, all things work together for good. We need to praise G-d in all things and that includes sending us servants like Mystery Babylon.
