CHAPTER 5 OLD COVENANT ISRAEL’S WHOREDOMS

Isa 57:1 The righteous perisheth, and no man layeth it to heart: and merciful men are taken away, none considering that the righteous is taken away from the evil to come. 2 He shall enter into peace: they shall rest in their beds, each one walking in his uprightness. 3 But draw near hither, ye sons of the sorceress, the seed of the adulterer and the whore. 4 Against whom do ye sport yourselves? against whom make ye a wide mouth, and draw out the tongue? are ye not children of transgression, a seed of falsehood, 5 Enflaming yourselves with idols under every green tree, slaying the children in the valleys under the clifts of the rocks? 6 Among the smooth stones of the stream is thy portion; they, they are thy lot: even to them hast thou poured a drink offering, thou hast offered a meat offering. Should I receive comfort in these? 7 Upon a lofty and high mountain hast thou set thy bed: even thither wentest thou up to offer sacrifice. 8 Behind the doors also and the posts hast thou set up thy remembrance: for thou hast discovered thyself to another than me, and art gone up; thou hast enlarged thy bed, and made thee a covenant with them; thou lovedst their bed where thou sawest it. 9 And thou wentest to the king with ointment, and didst increase thy perfumes, and didst send thy messengers far off, and didst debase thyself even unto hell. 10 Thou art wearied in the greatness of thy way; yet saidst thou not, There is no hope: thou hast found the life of thine hand; therefore thou wast not grieved.

Having already determined in the previous chapter, that the above verses are in reference to the disobedient of the nation of Israel during the old covenant, we need not address this again. We will now turn our attention for the moment, toward just exactly what commands they were disobeying. Which have such transforming effect, and dire results. To change a people from the favored, born and borne of God, strengthened and protected by Him, into a people destitute, desolate, and void of the same. Thereby facing the judgments of God rather than His favor. My comments here will be short and to the point, as the scriptures themselves are very specific in nature.

We will take it for granted, that the Ten Commandments of God are not only among them, but of paramount significance regarding the same. Providing the basic principles which would have prevented such a change themselves, if followed. Nevertheless, there is more specific instruction from God, which they disobeyed unto abandonment and judgment as well.

Exo 23:20 Behold, I send an Angel before thee, to keep thee in the way, and to bring thee into the place which I have prepared. 21 Beware of him, and obey his voice, provoke him not; for he will not pardon your transgressions: for my name is in him. 22 But if thou shalt indeed obey his voice, and do all that I speak; then I will be an enemy unto thine enemies, and an adversary unto thine adversaries. 23 For mine Angel shall go before thee, and bring thee in unto the Amorites, and the Hittites, and the Perizzites, and the Canaanites, the Hivites, and the Jebusites: and I will cut them off. 24 Thou shalt not bow down to their gods, nor serve them, nor do after their works: but thou shalt utterly overthrow them, and quite break down their images. 25 And ye shall serve the LORD your God, and he shall bless thy bread, and thy water; and I will take sickness away from the midst of thee.

The Israelites were not to bow down to the idols or god’s of the nations around them, whom they were going to conquer. They were to remain pure and faithful to the religious instructions God had given them alone. They were to “utterly overthrow and break down their images as well.

Lev 18:1 And the LORD spake unto Moses, saying, 2 Speak unto the children of Israel, and say unto them, I am the LORD your God. 3 After the doings of the land of Egypt, wherein ye dwelt, shall ye not do: and after the doings of the land of Canaan, whither I bring you, shall ye not do: neither shall ye walk in their ordinances. 4 Ye shall do my judgments, and keep mine ordinances, to walk therein: I am the LORD your God. 5 Ye shall therefore keep my statutes, and my judgments: which if a man do, he shall live in them: I am the LORD. 6 None of you shall approach to any that is near of kin to him, to uncover their nakedness: I am the LORD. 7 The nakedness of thy father, or the nakedness of thy mother, shalt thou not uncover: she is thy mother; thou shalt not uncover her nakedness. 8 The nakedness of thy father's wife shalt thou not uncover: it is thy father's nakedness. 9 The nakedness of thy sister, the daughter of thy father, or daughter of thy mother, whether she be born at home, or born abroad, even their nakedness thou shalt not uncover. 10 The nakedness of thy son's daughter, or of thy daughter's daughter, even their nakedness thou shalt not uncover: for theirs is thine own nakedness. 11 The nakedness of thy father's wife's daughter, begotten of thy father, she is thy sister, thou shalt not uncover her nakedness. 12 Thou shalt not uncover the nakedness of thy father's sister: she is thy father's near kinswoman. 13 Thou shalt not uncover the nakedness of thy mother's sister: for she is thy mother's near kinswoman. 14 Thou shalt not uncover the nakedness of thy father's brother, thou shalt not approach to his wife: she is thine aunt. 15 Thou shalt not uncover the nakedness of thy daughter in law: she is thy son's wife; thou shalt not uncover her nakedness. 16 Thou shalt not uncover the nakedness of thy brother's wife: it is thy brother's nakedness. 17 Thou shalt not uncover the nakedness of a woman and her daughter, neither shalt thou take her son's daughter, or her daughter's daughter, to uncover her nakedness; for they are her near kinswomen: it is wickedness. 18 Neither shalt thou take a wife to her sister, to vex her, to uncover her nakedness, beside the other in her life time. 19 Also thou shalt not approach unto a woman to uncover her nakedness, as long as she is put apart for her uncleanness. 20 Moreover thou shalt not lie carnally with thy neighbour's wife, to defile thyself with her. 21 And thou shalt not let any of thy seed pass through the fire to Molech, neither shalt thou profane the name of thy God: I am the LORD. 22 Thou shalt not lie with mankind, as with womankind: it is abomination. 23 Neither shalt thou lie with any beast to defile thyself therewith: neither shall any woman stand before a beast to lie down thereto: it is confusion. 24 Defile not ye yourselves in any of these things: for in all these the nations are defiled which I cast out before you:25 And the land is defiled: therefore I do visit the iniquity thereof upon it, and the land itself vomiteth out her inhabitants. 26 Ye shall therefore keep my statutes and my judgments, and shall not commit any of these abominations; neither any of your own nation, nor any stranger that sojourneth among you: 27 (For all these abominations have the men of the land done, which were before you, and the land is defiled;) 28 hat the land spue not you out also, when ye defile it, as it spued out the nations that were before you. 29 For whosoever shall commit any of these abominations, even the souls that commit them shall be cut off from among their people. 30 Therefore shall ye keep mine ordinance, that ye commit not any one of these abominable customs, which were committed before you, and that ye defile not yourselves therein: I am the LORD your God.

Israel was specifically instructed by God, not to worship the god’s of those they conquered, or take part in or practice the abominations which they did. This included a lot of sexual immorality, which God referred to as abominations. Many of which were directly tied to the false god’s they worshipped, and or practices associated with the same (1Ki 14:24, 1Ki 15:12, 1Ki 22:46, 2Ki23:7). No doubt eventually just spilling over into society over the course of time. The following is from the JEWISH VIRTUAL LIBRARY -

BAAL WORSHIP

…………………………………………………………..

YHWH Versus Baal

…………………………………………………………..

Biblical narrative incorporates tales of Baal worship into the traditions of the wilderness wandering, thus tracing Baal worship to the earliest period of Israel's existence. At Shittim they attached themselves to Baal-Peor, ate sacrifices for the dead, and indulged in sacred sexual orgies (Num. 25:1–11; Ps. 106:28). Life in a land dependent on rainfall enhanced the appeal of the Baal cult and its pervasive influence persisted through the centuries, as the unrelenting protests of the prophets and the sporadic efforts at reform attest. Horrendous and repulsive aspects of the worship – sexual excesses and perversions (Isa. 57:3–10), perhaps including copulation with animals (Hos. 13:2) such as Baal himself performed in the Ugaritic myth – are depicted in the prophetic tirades. Virtually all reference to Baal's consort, the violent "Virgin Anath" – with whom Baal copulates by the thousand in one of the Ugaritic mythological fragments – has been excluded from the Bible, but the goddesses Ashtart (Judg. 2:13) and *Asherah (Judg. 6:30; II Kings 16:32–33) are associated with him.

………………………………………………………………………..

The above testimony is only in relation to Baal of course, not the many other god’s of Israel’s either conquered nations, or surrounding nations which her disobedient committed spiritual fornication, adultery, and whoredoms with. Leading also to the various sexual immoralities we see so commonly today. Today we also have the newer religious faiths of atheism and or secular humanism which contribute towards the same ends.

Jer 3:1 They say, If a man put away his wife, and she go from him, and become another man's, shall he return unto her again? shall not that land be greatly polluted? but thou hast played the harlot with many lovers; yet return again to me, saith the LORD. 2 Lift up thine eyes unto the high places, and see where thou hast not been lien with. In the ways hast thou sat for them, as the Arabian in the wilderness; and thou hast polluted the land with thy whoredoms and with thy wickedness. 3 Therefore the showers have been withholden, and there hath been no latter rain; and thou hadst a whore's forehead, thou refusedst to be ashamed. 4 Wilt thou not from this time cry unto me, My father, thou art the guide of my youth? 5 Will he reserve his anger for ever? will he keep it to the end? Behold, thou hast spoken and done evil things as thou couldest. 6 The LORD said also unto me in the days of Josiah the king, Hast thou seen that which backsliding Israel hath done? she is gone up upon every high mountain and under every green tree, and there hath played the harlot. 7 And I said after she had done all these things, Turn thou unto me. But she returned not. And her treacherous sister Judah saw it. 8 And I saw, when for all the causes whereby backsliding Israel committed adultery I had put her away, and given her a bill of divorce; yet her treacherous sister Judah feared not, but went and played the harlot also. 9 And it came to pass through the lightness of her whoredom, that she defiled the land, and committed adultery with stones and with stocks. 10 And yet for all this her treacherous sister Judah hath not turned unto me with her whole heart, but feignedly, saith the LORD. 11 And the LORD said unto me, The backsliding Israel hath justified herself more than treacherous Judah. 12 Go and proclaim these words toward the north, and say, Return, thou backsliding Israel, saith the LORD; and I will not cause mine anger to fall upon you: for I am merciful, saith the LORD, and I will not keep anger for ever. 13 Only acknowledge thine iniquity, that thou hast transgressed against the LORD thy God, and hast scattered thy ways to the strangers under every green tree, and ye have not obeyed my voice, saith the LORD. 14 Turn, O backsliding children, saith the LORD; for I am married unto you: and I will take you one of a city, and two of a family, and I will bring you to Zion:

The Lord compares Israel’s covenant with Him to marriage vows, and their breaking of the covenant to the unfaithfulness of adultery and even whoredom. In that they sought love and acceptance from peoples and their god’s, who cared not for them as God does, nor could save or protect them as God had many times. None of those gods would or could become one of and with them, unto their salvation, as Christ Jesus our Lord has for us. Which truth the entire nation, religion, and economy of Israel centered around and pointed to, while they remained faithful in obedience to Him. These things we may discuss in greater detail in the next chapters dealing with New covenant Israel’s Whoredoms as well, in unfaithfulness to God in the rejection of the teachings of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ.

We will close this chapter, with an examination Ezekiel chapter 16. Which only further establishes the points already made, and ends with the promise of the establishment of God’s everlasting covenant with the true Israel of God.

The Lord's Faithless Bride

Eze 16:1 Again the word of the LORD came unto me, saying, 2 Son of man, cause Jerusalem to know her abominations, 3 And say, Thus saith the Lord GOD unto Jerusalem; Thy birth and thy nativity is of the land of Canaan; thy father was an Amorite, and thy mother an Hittite. 4 And as for thy nativity, in the day thou wast born thy navel was not cut, neither wast thou washed in water to supple thee; thou wast not salted at all, nor swaddled at all. 5 None eye pitied thee, to do any of these unto thee, to have compassion upon thee; but thou wast cast out in the open field, to the lothing of thy person, in the day that thou wast born. 6 And when I passed by thee, and saw thee polluted in thine own blood, I said unto thee when thou wast in thy blood, Live; yea, I said unto thee when thou wast in thy blood, Live. 7 I have caused thee to multiply as the bud of the field, and thou hast increased and waxen great, and thou art come to excellent ornaments: thy breasts are fashioned, and thine hair is grown, whereas thou wast naked and bare. 8 Now when I passed by thee, and looked upon thee, behold, thy time was the time of love; and I spread my skirt over thee, and covered thy nakedness: yea, I sware unto thee, and entered into a covenant with thee, saith the Lord GOD, and thou becamest mine.

It was God Himself that raised up the nation of Israel and made them great among the nations of the world. Establishing His covenant with them as his peculiar people.

9 Then washed I thee with water; yea, I throughly washed away thy blood from thee, and I anointed thee with oil. 10 I clothed thee also with broidered work, and shod thee with badgers' skin, and I girded thee about with fine linen, and I covered thee with silk. 11 I decked thee also with ornaments, and I put bracelets upon thy hands, and a chain on thy neck. 12 And I put a jewel on thy forehead, and earrings in thine ears, and a beautiful crown upon thine head. 13 Thus wast thou decked with gold and silver; and thy raiment was of fine linen, and silk, and broidered work; thou didst eat fine flour, and honey, and oil: and thou wast exceeding beautiful, and thou didst prosper into a kingdom. 14 And thy renown went forth among the heathen for thy beauty: for it was perfect through my comeliness, which I had put upon thee, saith the Lord GOD. 15 But thou didst trust in thine own beauty, and playedst the harlot because of thy renown, and pouredst out thy fornications on every one that passed by; his it was. 16 And of thy garments thou didst take, and deckedst thy high places with divers colours, and playedst the harlot thereupon: the like things shall not come, neither shall it be so. 17 Thou hast also taken thy fair jewels of my gold and of my silver, which I had given thee, and madest to thyself images of men, and didst commit whoredom with them, 18 And tookest thy broidered garments, and coveredst them: and thou hast set mine oil and mine incense before them. 19 My meat also which I gave thee, fine flour, and oil, and honey, wherewith I fed thee, thou hast even set it before them for a sweet savour: and thus it was, saith the Lord GOD. 20 Moreover thou hast taken thy sons and thy daughters, whom thou hast borne unto me, and these hast thou sacrificed unto them to be devoured. Is this of thy whoredoms a small matter, 21 That thou hast slain my children, and delivered them to cause them to pass through the fire for them? 22 And in all thine abominations and thy whoredoms thou hast not remembered the days of thy youth, when thou wast naked and bare, and wast polluted in thy blood.

They took the wealth which God had given them unto the glory of His name, and appropriated it toward the heathens and their gods. Even taking the jewels, gold, and silver dedicated to and or actually of the temple and it’s services which pointed to Christ our Lord, and appropriated them toward the heathen and their gods. They took the bounty of their meat, fine flour, oil, honey, and incense as well, and offered them up as a sweet savour before the heathen gods, which are no gods at all. All of which had been offered in God’s commanded and ordained temple as a sweet savour before Him, typifying the sacrifice of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ, and the unfathomable bounties and blessings bestowed upon humanity by His sacrifice. Spiritual unfaithfulness in the highest degree.

23 And it came to pass after all thy wickedness, (woe, woe unto thee! saith the Lord GOD;) 24 That thou hast also built unto thee an eminent place, and hast made thee an high place in every street. 25 Thou hast built thy high place at every head of the way, and hast made thy beauty to be abhorred, and hast opened thy feet to every one that passed by, and multiplied thy whoredoms. 26 Thou hast also committed fornication with the Egyptians thy neighbours, great of flesh; and hast increased thy whoredoms, to provoke me to anger. 27 Behold, therefore I have stretched out my hand over thee, and have diminished thine ordinary food, and delivered thee unto the will of them that hate thee, the daughters of the Philistines, which are ashamed of thy lewd way. 28 hou hast played the whore also with the Assyrians, because thou wast unsatiable; yea, thou hast played the harlot with them, and yet couldest not be satisfied. 29 Thou hast moreover multiplied thy fornication in the land of Canaan unto Chaldea; and yet thou wast not satisfied herewith. 30 How weak is thine heart, saith the Lord GOD, seeing thou doest all these things, the work of an imperious whorish woman; 31 In that thou buildest thine eminent place in the head of every way, and makest thine high place in every street; and hast not been as an harlot, in that thou scornest hire; 32 But as a wife that committeth adultery, which taketh strangers instead of her husband! 33 They give gifts to all whores: but thou givest thy gifts to all thy lovers, and hirest them, that they may come unto thee on every side for thy whoredom. 34 And the contrary is in thee from other women in thy whoredoms, whereas none followeth thee to commit whoredoms: and in that thou givest a reward, and no reward is given unto thee, therefore thou art contrary. 35 Wherefore, O harlot, hear the word of the LORD: 36 Thus saith the Lord GOD; Because thy filthiness was poured out, and thy nakedness discovered through thy whoredoms with thy lovers, and with all the idols of thy abominations, and by the blood of thy children, which thou didst give unto them; 37 Behold, therefore I will gather all thy lovers, with whom thou hast taken pleasure, and all them that thou hast loved, with all them that thou hast hated; I will even gather them round about against thee, and will discover thy nakedness unto them, that they may see all thy nakedness. 38 And I will judge thee, as women that break wedlock and shed blood are judged; and I will give thee blood in fury and jealousy. 39 And I will also give thee into their hand, and they shall throw down thine eminent place, and shall break down thy high places: they shall strip thee also of thy clothes, and shall take thy fair jewels, and leave thee naked and bare. 40 They shall also bring up a company against thee, and they shall stone thee with stones, and thrust thee through with their swords. 41 And they shall burn thine houses with fire, and execute judgments upon thee in the sight of many women: and I will cause thee to cease from playing the harlot, and thou also shalt give no hire any more. 42 So will I make my fury toward thee to rest, and my jealousy shall depart from thee, and I will be quiet, and will be no more angry. 43 Because thou hast not remembered the days of thy youth, but hast fretted me in all these things; behold, therefore I also will recompense thy way upon thine head, saith the Lord GOD: and thou shalt not commit this lewdness above all thine abominations. 44 Behold, every one that useth proverbs shall use this proverb against thee, saying, As is the mother, so is her daughter. 45 Thou art thy mother's daughter, that lotheth her husband and her children; and thou art the sister of thy sisters, which lothed their husbands and their children: your mother was an Hittite, and your father an Amorite. 46 And thine elder sister is Samaria, she and her daughters that dwell at thy left hand: and thy younger sister, that dwelleth at thy right hand, is Sodom and her daughters. 47 Yet hast thou not walked after their ways, nor done after their abominations: but, as if that were a very little thing, thou wast corrupted more than they in all thy ways. 48 As I live, saith the Lord GOD, Sodom thy sister hath not done, she nor her daughters, as thou hast done, thou and thy daughters. 49 Behold, this was the iniquity of thy sister Sodom, pride, fulness of bread, and abundance of idleness was in her and in her daughters, neither did she strengthen the hand of the poor and needy. 50 And they were haughty, and committed abomination before me: therefore I took them away as I saw good. 51 Neither hath Samaria committed half of thy sins; but thou hast multiplied thine abominations more than they, and hast justified thy sisters in all thine abominations which thou hast done. 52 Thou also, which hast judged thy sisters, bear thine own shame for thy sins that thou hast committed more abominable than they: they are more righteous than thou: yea, be thou confounded also, and bear thy shame, in that thou hast justified thy sisters. 53  When I shall bring again their captivity, the captivity of Sodom and her daughters, and the captivity of Samaria and her daughters, then will I bring again the captivity of thy captives in the midst of them: 54 That thou mayest bear thine own shame, and mayest be confounded in all that thou hast done, in that thou art a comfort unto them. 55 When thy sisters, Sodom and her daughters, shall return to their former estate, and Samaria and her daughters shall return to their former estate, then thou and thy daughters shall return to your former estate. 56 For thy sister Sodom was not mentioned by thy mouth in the day of thy pride, 57 Before thy wickedness was discovered, as at the time of thy reproach of the daughters of Syria, and all that are round about her, the daughters of the Philistines, which despise thee round about. 58 Thou hast borne thy lewdness and thine abominations, saith the LORD.

She committed her whoredoms, and abominations with all the nations and their god’s which she could. In judgment therefore, God turned all of them against her, to destroy her. So shall it be with the great whore of this new covenant as well, as we shall examine in later chapters.

The Lord's Everlasting Covenant

Eze 16:59 For thus saith the Lord GOD; I will even deal with thee as thou hast done, which hast despised the oath in breaking the covenant. 60 Nevertheless I will remember my covenant with thee in the days of thy youth, and I will establish unto thee an everlasting covenant. 61 Then thou shalt remember thy ways, and be ashamed, when thou shalt receive thy sisters, thine elder and thy younger: and I will give them unto thee for daughters, but not by thy covenant. 62 And I will establish my covenant with thee; and thou shalt know that I am the LORD: 63 That thou mayest remember, and be confounded, and never open thy mouth any more because of thy shame, when I am pacified toward thee for all that thou hast done, saith the Lord GOD.

Nevertheless, even after all such, will God establish His everlasting covenant to all whom will repent through the new covenant which God would and now has established. Therefore must the people of the new covenant come out of her who is, BABYLON THE GREAT, THE MOTHER OF HARLOTS AND ABOMINATIONS OF THE EARTH.

CHAPTER 6
THE GREAT WHORE, OR BABYLON OF THE NEW COVENANT, PURPLE AND SCARLET

Rev 17:1  And there came one of the seven angels which had the seven vials, and talked with me, saying unto me, Come hither; I will shew unto thee the judgment of the great whore that sitteth upon many waters: 2 With whom the kings of the earth have committed fornication, and the inhabitants of the earth have been made drunk with the wine of her fornication. 3 So he carried me away in the spirit into the wilderness: and I saw a woman sit upon a scarlet coloured beast, full of names of blasphemy, having seven heads and ten horns. 4 And the woman was arrayed in purple and scarlet colour, and decked with gold and precious stones and pearls, having a golden cup in her hand full of abominations and filthiness of her fornication: 17 And upon her forehead was a name written, MYSTERY, BABYLON THE GREAT, THE MOTHER OF HARLOTS AND ABOMINATIONS OF THE EARTH.

Click on the following link, to observe the literal visual evidence concerning BABYLON THE GREAT, and the golden cup in her hand full of abominations.

https://duckduckgo.com/?q=golden+cups+for+mass&t=osx&iar=images&iax=images&ia=images

Apart from the above literal fulfillment concerning attire, jewelry, and the golden cup, there are spiritual implications as well of course. All of these colors and precious materials were connected with the sanctuary and priesthood of the old covenant. One of the main purposes of BABYLON THE GREAT, is to replace the true church, priestly ministry, and intercession of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ, with the evil ones’s counterfeit. To take our Saviors place and authority unto themselves. Therefore have they established apostolic succession, the mass and transubstantiation, confession and absolution to and from the priest, intercession of the saints, and what have you. All officiated by the counterfeit priesthood they would make all of humanity dependent upon one way or another. Either by conversion and acceptance of their faith built upon such, or political submission of all to global governance under the thumb of said priesthood.

Themselves and the government they help form, promote, empower, and sustain. These two in bed together, washing each others hands, and passing themselves off as this worlds saviors in the place of Christ. Those whom this world cannot do without, if it is to survive. Addressing and or creating one crisis after another if necessary, that they might control and manipulate the masses through fear mongering politics. Presenting themselves and their oft predetermined solutions to their prefabricated crisis, as the answer and saviors of these very crisis. Thus does BABYLON THE GERAT, spiritually and politically seek to replace the authority, ministry, intercession, and salvation of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. To replace His officiation of all of the above from the heavenly sanctuary, with her own officiation and false priesthood here on earth. The prophecies of the book of Daniel make reference of these efforts.

Dan 8:9 And out of one of them came forth a little horn, which waxed exceeding great, toward the south, and toward the east, and toward the pleasant land. 10 And it waxed great, even to the host of heaven; and it cast down some of the host and of the stars to the ground, and stamped upon them. 11 Yea, he magnified himself even to the prince of the host, and by him the daily sacrifice was taken away, and the place of his sanctuary was cast down. 12 And an host was given him against the daily sacrifice by reason of transgression, and it cast down the truth to the ground; and it practised, and prospered. 13 Then I heard one saint speaking, and another saint said unto that certain saint which spake, How long shall be the vision concerning the daily sacrifice, and the transgression of desolation, to give both the sanctuary and the host to be trodden under foot? 14 And he said unto me, Unto two thousand and three hundred days; then shall the sanctuary be cleansed.

Dan 11:27 And both these kings' hearts shall be to do mischief, and they shall speak lies at one table; but it shall not prosper: for yet the end shall be at the time appointed. 28 Then shall he return into his land with great riches; and his heart shall be against the holy covenant; and he shall do exploits, and return to his own land. 29 At the time appointed he shall return, and come toward the south; but it shall not be as the former, or as the latter. 30 For the ships of Chittim shall come against him: therefore he shall be grieved, and return, and have indignation against the holy covenant: so shall he do; he shall even return, and have intelligence with them that forsake the holy covenant. 31 And arms shall stand on his part, and they shall pollute the sanctuary of strength, and shall take away the daily sacrifice, and they shall place the abomination that maketh desolate. 32 And such as do wickedly against the covenant shall he corrupt by flatteries: but the people that do know their God shall be strong, and do exploits.


It was and is through the Church of Rome, that the place of God’s sanctuary was cast down during this new covenant era. It was cast down to this earth from heaven when the man of sin, (the pope of Rome) set himself up in the temple of God shewing himself that he was and is God. Here on earth, in the place of the ministry and intercession of Christ our Lord from the heavenly sanctuary (2 Th 2:3-12).

It was cast down and replaced by the false doctrine of apostolic succession. Which maintains the false doctrine of a pope over the entire church of Christ through false succession, rather than leadership of each member of Christ ’s body in direct communication with Him through prayer. Whose prayers go right to the throne of God through Christ Jesus our Lord, who is always officiating for us  in the heavenly sanctuary (Heb 4:14-16). Where God’s throne is (Psa 11:4). Said doctrine degrading leadership of God’s church to successions controlled by one institution, itself open to the corruptions of this world as all institutions within it are. Rather than Holy Spirit filled and selected humble servants of the Most High (Joh 16:13-15).

It was cast down and replaced by this man of sin, with his own priesthood in officiating the spiritual application of the daily sacrifice. Which is the forgiveness of our sins through confession and repentance unto our Lord. By His blood and intercession from the heavenly sanctuary, not confession to and absolution from imposture priests here on earth (Heb 2:16-18, 1Jn 1:9).

It was cast down and replaced by the man of sin’s Mass and transubstantiation. Officiated by his priests pretending to bring the flesh and blood of Jesus Christ down here to earth repeatedly at their command, unto salvation upon which they declare humanity is dependent. This instead of pointing the faithful to our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ, the High Priest of our confession, officiating right now for us in the heavenly sanctuary. Whose sacrifice once and for all time saves those clinging to it by the blood of the true LAMB OF GOD, who ever liveth to make intercession for us (Heb 7:22-28, 8, 9:12-28).

It was cast down by the false doctrine of the man of sin regarding the intercession of the “Saints”, or the dead if you will, in prayer to the same. The deceived seeking intercession, and salvation in prayer to the dead, instead of prayer to God our Father in and though Jesus Christ our Lord. Who again is officiating in the heavenly sanctuary right now for everyone of us concerning such things. He ever liveth to make intercession for us. The dead no nothing, let alone intercede for the living. Jesus died for our sins intending exactly that such would give us each direct access to the very throne of God through prayer in His name. Amen.(1Jn 1:9, Ecc 9:5-10)

By these false doctrines and others, did and does the the man of sin and BABYLON THE GREAT, cast the sanctuary and truth to the ground. I could go on, but the point is made. The man of sin, and his supporting institution described in biblical prophecy as a woman with multiple descriptives, compose BABYLON THE GREAT, THE MOTHER OF HARLOTS AND ABOMINATIONS OF THE EARTH. Whom, pretending to be the head and body of Christ, have and do counterfeit the same. Seeking to replace His entire ministry, church, and authority exercised from the heavenly sanctuary where Christ now resides, with their own on a global scale. We will examine far more prophetic details and fulfillment concerning BABYLON THE GEAT, in following chapters.

Wars and rumors of wars are SPIRITUAL IN NATURE - or so you wrote.
As far as Matthew 24 and much in Revelation, if not all. You even proved this to be so by saying:

HISTORIC FACT declares the Roman Catholic church has been responsible for the DEATH and PERSECUTION of more saints of God, including Jews, than ALL OTHER RELIGIONS COMBINED including Islam. (see Revelation 16:6) The United States of America was founded by people who wanted to escape the type of religious persecution sponsored by the RCC and its droid religions.  Denying this historic fact doesn't erase it or sweep it under the carpet where no one can see.  It brings into stark relief the horror of WAR.
Then you said:

It brings into stark relief the horror of WAR.  Spiritual or political it's all the same. The war in Ukraine is a present reminder of this truth.   It cannot be denied.
They are not the same. The war fought by Christ and his apostles and world war I or 2 is two totally different types of wars. Maybe one day you will figure this out, maybe.
Quote from: Choir Loft on: Sat Mar 19, 2022 - 07:49:47
Physical as well as spiritual causes contribute to the outbreak of war and hostility.  Someone else has what someone wants.
Not necessarily so. In the NT this was not so. Many uproars were caused by preaching the truths of the word of God and not backing down. Many times someone is teaching truths that others hate. Read the Acts of the apostles and see if this was not so.

So what's wrong with hollering from the choir loft?    Instead of insulting another person's choice of signature why don't you invest a modicum of imagination to invent your own?
If you believe yours is desirable or valuable, then go for it, but know you are setting yourself up to be mocked and you do a pretty good job of encouraging others to do so by your words coming from the loft.

When you do you'll quickly discover some fool doesn't like it - for no real reason at all (which is the modus operandi of fools).
That's one reason among others why I do not have one.

Btw, I do not read newspapers, I thought that went away when the internet was discovered. I'll soon not have a landline phone when I move. Everything is changing so fast, not sure what's next.

It was and is through the Church of Rome, that the place of God’s sanctuary was cast down during this new covenant era. It was cast down to this earth from heaven when the man of sin, (the pope of Rome) set himself up in the temple of God shewing himself that he was and is God. Here on earth, in the place of the ministry and intercession of Christ our Lord from the heavenly sanctuary (2 Th 2:3-12).

It was cast down and replaced by the false doctrine of apostolic succession. Which maintains the false doctrine of a pope over the entire church of Christ through false succession, rather than leadership of each member of Christ ’s body in direct communication with Him through prayer. Whose prayers go right to the throne of God through Christ Jesus our Lord, who is always officiating for us  in the heavenly sanctuary (Heb 4:14-16). Where God’s throne is (Psa 11:4). Said doctrine degrading leadership of God’s church to successions controlled by one institution, itself open to the corruptions of this world as all institutions within it are. Rather than Holy Spirit filled and selected humble servants of the Most High (Joh 16:13-15).

It was cast down and replaced by this man of sin, with his own priesthood in officiating the spiritual application of the daily sacrifice. Which is the forgiveness of our sins through confession and repentance unto our Lord. By His blood and intercession from the heavenly sanctuary, not confession to and absolution from imposture priests here on earth (Heb 2:16-18, 1Jn 1:9).

It was cast down and replaced by the man of sin’s Mass and transubstantiation. Officiated by his priests pretending to bring the flesh and blood of Jesus Christ down here to earth repeatedly at their command, unto salvation upon which they declare humanity is dependent. This instead of pointing the faithful to our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ, the High Priest of our confession, officiating right now for us in the heavenly sanctuary. Whose sacrifice once and for all time saves those clinging to it by the blood of the true LAMB OF GOD, who ever liveth to make intercession for us (Heb 7:22-28, 8, 9:12-28).

It was cast down by the false doctrine of the man of sin regarding the intercession of the “Saints”, or the dead if you will, in prayer to the same. The deceived seeking intercession, and salvation in prayer to the dead, instead of prayer to God our Father in and though Jesus Christ our Lord. Who again is officiating in the heavenly sanctuary right now for everyone of us concerning such things. He ever liveth to make intercession for us. The dead no nothing, let alone intercede for the living. Jesus died for our sins intending exactly that such would give us each direct access to the very throne of God through prayer in His name. Amen.(1Jn 1:9, Ecc 9:5-10)

By these false doctrines and others, did and does the the man of sin and BABYLON THE GREAT, cast the sanctuary and truth to the ground. I could go on, but the point is made. The man of sin, and his supporting institution described in biblical prophecy as a woman with multiple descriptives, compose BABYLON THE GREAT, THE MOTHER OF HARLOTS AND ABOMINATIONS OF THE EARTH. Whom, pretending to be the head and body of Christ, have and do counterfeit the same. Seeking to replace His entire ministry, church, and authority exercised from the heavenly sanctuary where Christ now resides, with their own on a global scale.
I have read your posts today up until this one. There were some points o difference and many points we agree on, but I just want to focus here on this summary you have made up to this point.

Amo, you and your group of followers known as the SDA are wrong concerning Mystery Babylon, by limiting Babylon to the Roman Catholic Church, and the man of sin to the Pope.

We agree that RCC is a whore in Babylon and a big part of the corruption in Christendom, both doctrines wise and practical. But to limit Mystery Babylon to the RCC is a great error, and allows so many other false cults to go under the radar of being part of the whore in Babylon.

We agree the Pope is a man of sin AMONG SO MANY OTHERS both in the RCC/OEC and all other false cults throughout Mystery Babylon. So, you are going to allow men like Kenneth Copeland and ten thousand others to stay under the radar, who are just as guilty as any pope that has ever had the title of God's vicar on earth.

Revelation 17 and 18 are dealing with two separate subjects~Most of chapter seventeen is dealing with false religion IN Mystery Babylon; while the latter part of seventeen into eighteen is addressing the commerce, entertainment sector of Babylon~tow different sections of Mystery Babylon.

Above you quoted:

This second woman of biblical prophecy represents the evil one, and all of his false religions, philosophies, sciences, and what have you, of this world existing in contradiction to God’s truth. Therefore can it be said of her -

Rev 18:24 And in her was found the blood of prophets, and of saints, and of all that were slain upon the earth.
Amo, this is NOT speaking of the religious part of Babylon only as you would have us to believe but is clearly speaking of THIS WORLD as we know it. Look carefully at the verse again:
Quote
Revelation 18:24~"And in her was found the blood of prophets, and of saints, and of all that were slain upon the earth."
Amo, there are killings in this world almost every minute of every hour worldwide that do not take place in the RELGLIOUS sector of Mystery Babylon.

I have shown above that Mystery Babylon is THIS WORLD SYSTEM as we know it~which has its religion, commerce, and etertainment~you folks labor hard to limit it to false religion and that ONLY of RCC. You are missing so much truth by doing so.  You also are allowing so many false prophets to go under the BIBLICAL radar of being undetected. You are hiding them under your false doctrine of RCC being Mystery Babylon, the only whore we should be concerned about.

You are also hiding your group of followers. You are hiding BJU and other religious voices. Maybe you are no longer part of the SDA, which I do not know.

I don't say that Babylon is alone, scripture says that she is the mother of harlots, she therefore has many daughters. Still, there is only one mother. Her daughters are harlots and or adulterous as well, meaning they either once were of God's true religion and became apostate, or profess to be of or believe in Christ and are apostate. The latter is likely to include all false religions before the end, when the papacies goal of the unification of humanity is realized. The unification of humanity will without question include the unification of humanities religions. This process has already been under way for quite some time now through the Ecumenical movement. The papacy has already joined hands with many even non Christian faiths, even calling their god the same as ours, and touting the old lie that the different religions of this world represent different paths to God. Before it is all over, most if not all religions of this world will have joined hands under the papacies leadership, in toleration and unification with each other. Only one religion cannot be part of such, authentic bible based Christianity. Therefore will Christ's own be singled out unto persecution again.

I am not letting anyone under the radar. Though I am not capable either of addressing every daughter of Babylon. I focus therefore upon the mother, calling all out her as the mother of all false doctrine, social teachings, and what have you. Years ago I was warned on these boards not to address "Protestantism" on these boards or I would be banned for breaking the rules. This is why I do not address the many "Protestant" daughters of Babylon who have been and continue to return to their mother. They are and will continue to play a key role in establishing the papacies goals. These once Protestant principled United States, are now basically papacy principled. The country has been inundated and taken over by her adherents and another one of her daughters, atheism and or secular humanism. We are the beast which had two horns like a lamb, but now ever increasingly speaks like the dragon. Through our power and influence in this world established by bible based Protestant principles, the dragon will help establish the final global beast of biblical prophecy. We are the ones who were established upon the two horns of the lamb, civil and religious freedom by maintaining a separation between these two spheres of power. Who have been transformed into one speaking as the dragon by the crafts of BABYLON THE GREAT. She entered our land under the pretense of the protections our guaranteed freedoms, and then took us over from within unto speaking as the dragon who is her father. This is her method of conquering and ruining nations and peoples. This is another topic though, which will be addressed in later chapters of that which I am presently writing.

The pope is not the man of sin among so many others, he is the man of sin, only to be surpassed by Satan himself as the literal antichrist. In impersonating Christ near the very end. The pope is the man who declares that he stands in the place of Christ in this world, and has planted himself at the head of the new covenant temple of God. Which is verily Christ's church, and or the literal temple of God in heaven. As though he was God.

I have already addressed the blood of the prophets, saints, and all those killed by Babylon. To the extent that is not literally her that killed everyone, but the same spirit of the evil one who motivates her. The one who motivated Cain to first form a false system of worship and or sacrifice, and then kill Abel for being a testimony against such. Babylon is not this world, she is that new covenant symbol of the mother of all false religious systems who have in the past and will in the present unite in rebellion against God. Therefore also persecuting Christ's own once again. I will be addressing the blood of the prophets, saints, and all in another chapter later. The scriptures and prophecy are in fact more specific than you are allowing for. As I will continue to show in further identifying Babylon in proceeding chapters. You are of course free to believe as you wish.

Well, now, you do not know me~Wars and rumors of wars in Matthew 24; Mark 13; and Luke 21 are all SPIRITUAL IN NATURE, not natural wars which have been since the world began. RCC/EOC is no more dangerous (maybe even less) than the modern-day "Faith" movement and Pentecostalism overall and a few more cults that have arisen since the mid-1800s.

The latter-day wars will be spiritual in nature against the saints of God from all sources.One word for you: Maybe you should be at the altar praying, instead of hollering into the air.

How can any intelligent person with basic education not know the basis and nature of war? 

WAR is physical.  WAR results in physical death and destruction of property.  It is all hell as US General William Tecumseh Sherman once said.  WAR is caused by two things; human greed and divine judgment.

When one group of people wants what some other group has they will attack with all the physical force they can muster to seize it. WAR breaks out.
When God is displeased with human indifference and human love of SIN, one of the judgments He brings to pass is WAR.

For instance, it's generally acknowledged that the American Civil War was a judgment of God upon the American SIN of slavery.  Even President Abraham Lincoln admitted to it.

WAR, even internal conflict regarding temptation to SIN, has very real causes.

In addition to genuine physical need, SIN is the greatest single cause of WAR.  Churches do not generally preach the need for repentance from SIN, but in these days of lawLESSness it is needed more than at any other time in human history. 

The subject of spiritual WAR has been promoted by ignorant fanatic elements of the church:
- so as to promote their particular brand of religion
- to $ell books and sermons on the subject
- to redirect/ignore the need to confess SIN and repent of it
- to parrot scripture as a religious panacea for the consequences of SIN 

All WAR has physical consequences.   Some are caused by human need and greed, but most are the result of SIN.

It is SIN that needs to be addressed.  The modern church denies the need to do so by embracing the false doctrine of hyper-grace.

THERE IS NO SUCH THING AS A LICENSE TO SIN.

Spiritual war of the type promoted by the religious lunatic fringe does not exist.  Dialogue on the subject usually parrots religious slogans and refuses to acknowledge real causes and effects - SIN and DEATH.

that's me, hollering from the choir loft...

CHAPTER 7
THE GREAT WHORE, THE MANY WATERS, AND THE KINGS OF THE EARTH

Rev 17:1  And there came one of the seven angels which had the seven vials, and talked with me, saying unto me, Come hither; I will shew unto thee the judgment of the great whore that sitteth upon many waters: 2 With whom the kings of the earth have committed fornication, and the inhabitants of the earth have been made drunk with the wine of her fornication. 3 So he carried me away in the spirit into the wilderness: and I saw a woman sit upon a scarlet coloured beast, full of names of blasphemy, having seven heads and ten horns. 4 And the woman was arrayed in purple and scarlet colour, and decked with gold and precious stones and pearls, having a golden cup in her hand full of abominations and filthiness of her fornication: 17 And upon her forehead was a name written, MYSTERY, BABYLON THE GREAT, THE MOTHER OF HARLOTS AND ABOMINATIONS OF THE EARTH.

Having already addressed who or what the waters of the above highlighted scriptures are, and when the Lord divided them, we will now take a closer look at the great whore’s effect upon them. Her influence is apparently intoxicating, and that intoxication is tied to her fornication. Her fornication is committed with the kings of this earth. Who the kings of this earth are is obvious enough. We shall therefore center our attention upon her aspects of fornication and intoxication. In this chapter we will address her fornication and establish the same. In the next we will address her intoxication.

Fornication is basically all sex outside of the marriage relationship. Which of course includes extra marital sex, or adultery. This is significant because the great whore is said to be guilty of fornication and adultery.  Both old covenant and new covenant Israel, the church, are symbolically represented in scripture as as a virgin, and or the bride of Christ. Israel was, and Christians are said to be a virgin betrothed to God in Christ Jesus our Lord. Both are also depicted as the Lords spouse. See - (Isa 62:4&5, Jer 3:13&14, Jer 31:2-4, Jer 31:21, Amos 5:1, John 3:28-30, Rom 7:4, 2 Cor 11:1&2, Eph 5:24-32, Rev 19:6-9) already quoted in chapter two.

BABYLON THE GREAT then, is symbolic of the new covenant Israel or Church of Christ in apostasy. As Israel of old was referred to as a harlot guilty of adultery and fornication while in a state of apostasy, so also is the new covenant Israel or Church of Christ as well. The remainder of this chapter will be quoted from the book SABBATH, SUNDAY, AND THE ABOMINATION OF DESOLATION, establishing BABYLON’S fornication and adultery with the kings of this earth. Which may be viewed at the link provided above the quotes below, in post #4.

http://www.gracecentered.com/christian_forums/seventh-day-adventist-forum-(sda)/sabbath-sunday-and-the-abomination-of-desolation/


Excerpt from SABBATH, SUNDAY, AND THE ABOMINATION OF DESOLATION, Chapter 3 - BABYLON:

Jer 3:8 And I saw, when for all the causes whereby backsliding Israel committed adultery I had put her away, and given her a bill of divorce; yet her treacherous sister Judah feared not, but went and played the harlot also. 9 And it came to pass through the lightness of her whoredom, that she defiled the land, and committed adultery with stones and with stocks.

Ezek 16:14 And thy renown went forth among the heathen for thy beauty: for it was perfect through my comeliness, which I had put upon thee, saith the Lord GOD. 15 But thou didst trust in thine own beauty, and playedst the harlot because of thy renown, and pouredst out thy fornications on every one that passed by; his it was.

Ezek 16:28 Thou hast played the whore also with the Assyrians, because thou wast unsatiable; yea, thou hast played the harlot with them, and yet couldest not be satisfied. 29 Thou hast moreover multiplied thy fornication in the land of Canaan unto Chaldea; and yet thou wast not satisfied herewith.

Hosea 4:15 Though thou, Israel, play the harlot, yet let not Judah offend; and come not ye unto Gilgal, neither go ye up to Bethaven, nor swear, The LORD liveth.


The nation of Israel was referred to as a harlot by God, when she had illicit relationships with the kings, or nations around her, and their gods. That is to say, when she trusted and relied upon the power of other nations, and their gods, over the true God of heaven and earth. The same no doubt will hold true for those who now claim to be God’s people, but have illicit relationships with the nations of this earth, and their gods. That is to say, with those who claim to be Christians, but are involved in the same.

The writer contends that the great city we are discussing is none other than Rome, and the harlot, is none other than the Church of Rome. For she is that original form of apostate Christianity, that first abandoned the power of the Holy Spirit in favor of the power of the state.  She leaned on the latter, because she had already lost the former. Through compromise, and mixing pagan practices with the true religion, which is an abomination to God, she lost the power of the Holy Spirit, and thus strove for the power of the state.

It is not such a simple thing as to say that the Church of Rome was that apostate Christian institution which first sought the power of the state, over the power of the Holy Spirit.  Moreover, she is the result of apostate Christianity seeking the power of the state, because she had lost the power of the Holy Spirit. Among the various apostate Christian entities of the day, she is the one who gained the favor of the state, to the furtherance of her ends. The struggle between these various groups of apostate Christians requires too much detail to address. The observation of which, would convince any true Christian of their fallen state. The purpose of the following is to establish the fact of her relations, and empowerment, with and by the kings of this earth.

In any case, Constantine, the first supposed Christian emperor of the Roman empire, was the first to give apostate Christianity the power of the state. He did so by enacting the first Sunday law. Observe the following.

The text of Constantine's Sunday Law of 321 A.D. is :
"One the venerable day of the Sun let the magistrates and people residing in cities rest, and let all workshops be closed. In the country however persons engaged in agriculture may freely and lawfully continue their pursuits because it often happens that another day is not suitable for gain-sowing or vine planting; lest by neglecting the proper moment for such operations the bounty of heaven should be lost. (Given the 7th day of March, Crispus and Constantine being consuls each of them the second time." Codex Justinianus, lib. 3, tit. 12, 3; translated in History of the Christian Church, Philip Schaff, D.D., (7-vol.ed.) Vol. III, p.380. New York, 1884

Dr. A.Chr. Bang says regarding this Law :
"This Sunday law constituted no real favoratism to Christianity..... It is evident from all his statuatory provisions that the Emperor during the time 313-323 with full consciousness has sought the realisation of his religeous aim: the amalgamation of heathenism and Christianity.“ Kirken og Romerstaten (The Church and the Roman State) p.256. Christiania, 1879

In A.D. 321, to please the bishops of the Catholic Church, he issued an edict commanding judges, townspeople, and mechanics to rest on Sunday. Yet in this also his paganism was still manifest, as the edict required rest on “the venerable day of the sun,” and "enjoined the observance, or rather forbade the public desecration, of Sunday, not under the name of Sabbatum, or Dies Domini, but under its old astrological and heathen title, Dies Solis, familiar to all his subjects, so that the law was as applicable to the worshipers of Hercules, Apollo, and Mithras, as to the Christians.“  (History of the Christian Church, Vol. 3, sec. 75, par. 5.-Schaff.)   ( The Great Empires of Prophecy by Alonzo Jones page 391 )

In the above quotes, we see some of the identifying marks of Babylon being fulfilled.  The establishment of the first Sunday law came about through the illicit relationship of those who claimed to be God’s people, with unconverted and even pagan kings of the earth. In Constantine, we find the first Emperor of Rome to begin committing fornication with the Mother of Harlots, that is Babylon.  Let’s look at some more from A.T. Jones.

Then came Constantine, the best imperial representative of the new paganism, and  the most devout worshiper of the sun as the supreme and universal deity, with the avowed purpose, as expressed in his own words, "First to bring the diverse judgments formed by all nations respecting the Deity to a condition, as it were, of settled uniformity." In Constantine the new paganism met its ideal, and the New Platonism -  the apostate, paganized, sun-worshiping form of Christianity - met its long-wished-for instrument. In him the two streams met. In him the aspiration of Elagabalus, the hope of Ammonius Saccas and Clement, of Plotinus and Origen, and the ambition of the perverse-minded, self-exalted bishops, were all realized and accomplished - a new, imperial, and universal religion was created.

Therefore, "the reign of Constantine the Great forms one of the epochs in the history of the world. It is the era of the dissolution of the Roman Empire; the commencement, or rather consolidation, of a kind of Eastern despotism, with a new capital, a new patriciate, a new constitution, a new financial system, a new, though as yet imperfect, jurisprudence, and, finally, a new religion." ( Milman - History of Christianity, book 3, chap. 1, par. 1 )The epoch thus formed was the epoch of the papacy; and the new religion thus created was the PAPAL RELIGION. ( The Great Empires of Prophecy by Alonzo Jones page 361 )

By instituting the first Sunday laws, Constantine gave the Church of Rome the power of the state. For this law commanded all, those in, and out of the faith, to observe this apostate Christian institution. This was the beginning of the realization of the Church of Rome’s purpose in having illicit relationships with the kings of the earth. By these relations, she hoped to establish herself in a position of power above all others. Though she claims to have been established by Christ, through the first Pope Peter, she was in reality established through the power of the kings of this earth. It was these with whom she committed spiritual adultery, and fornication. Let’s look at some more historical facts confirming these truths found in the book The Two Republics, by A. T. Jones.

“The Catholic Church demanded assistance in her ambitious aim to make her power and authority absolute over all; and for Constantine’s purposes it was essential that the church should be a unit. These two considerations combined to produce results both immediate and remote, that proved a curse to the time then present and to ages to follow. The immediate result was that Constantine had no sooner compassed the destruction of Licinius in A.D. 323, than he issued an edict against the Novatians, Valentinians, Marcionites, Paulians, Cataphrygians, and “all who devised and supported heresies by means of private assemblies,” denouncing them and their heresies, and commanding them all to enter the Catholic Church. The edict runs as follows: —

“Victor Constantinus Maximus Augustus, to the heretics: Understand now, by this present statute, ye Novatians, Valentinians, Marcionites, Paulians, ye who are called Cataphrygians, and all ye who devise and support heresies by means of your private assemblies, with what a tissue of falsehood and vanity, with what destructive and venomous errors, your doctrines are inseparably interwoven; so that through you the healthy soul is stricken with disease, and the living becomes the prey of everlasting death. Ye haters and enemies of truth and life, in league with destruction: All your counsels are opposed to the truth, but familiar with deeds of baseness; fit subjects for the fabulous follies of the stage: and by these ye frame falsehoods, oppress the innocent, and withhold the light from them that believe. Ever trespassing under the mask of godliness, ye fill all things with defilement: ye pierce the pure and guileless conscience with deadly wounds, while ye withdraw, one may almost say, the very light of day from the eyes of men. But why should I particularize, when to speak of your criminality as it deserves, demands more time and leisure than I can give? For so long and unmeasured is the catalogue of your offenses, so hateful and altogether atrocious are they, that a single day would not suffice to recount them all. And indeed it is well to turn one’s ears and eyes from such a subject, lest by a description of each particular evil, the pure sincerity and freshness of one’s own faith be impaired. Why then do I still bear with such abounding evil; especially since this protracted clemency is the cause that some who were sound are become tainted with this pestilent disease? Why not at once strike, as it were, at the root of so great a mischief by a public manifestation of displeasure? “Forasmuch, then, as it is no longer possible to bear with your pernicious errors, we give warning by this present statute that none of you henceforth presume to assemble yourselves together. We have directed, accordingly, that you be deprived of all the houses in which you are accustomed to hold your assemblies: and our care in this respect extends so far as to forbid the holding of your superstitious and senseless meetings, not in public merely, but in any private house or place whatsoever. Let those of you, therefore, who are desirous of embracing the true and pure religion, take the far better course of entering the Catholic Church, and uniting with it in holy fellowship, whereby you will be enabled to arrive at the knowledge of the truth. In any case, the delusions of your perverted understandings must entirely cease to mingle with and mar the felicity of our present times; I mean the impious and wretched doublemindedness of heretics and schismatics. For it is an object worthy of that prosperity which we enjoy through the favor of God, to endeavor to bring back those who in time past were living in the hope of future blessing, from all irregularity and error, to the right path, from darkness to light, from vanity to truth, from death to salvation. And in order that this remedy may be applied with effectual power, we have commanded (as before said), that you be positively deprived of every gathering point for your superstitious meetings; I mean all the houses of prayer (if such be worthy of the name) which belong to heretics, and that these be made over without delay to the Catholic Church; that any other places be confiscated to the public service, and no facility whatever be left for any future gathering; in order that from this day forward none of your unlawful assemblies may presume to appear in any public or private place. Let this edict be made public.” ( Eusebius’s- “Life of Constantine,” book 3, chaps. 64, 65. )

Some of the penal regulations of this edict “were copied from the edicts of Diocletian; and this method of conversion was applauded by the same bishops who had felt the hand of oppression, and had pleaded for the rights of humanity.” ( Gibbon- “Decline and Fall,” chap. 21, par. 1. )

As is obvious from the above edict, the establishment of the Church of Rome had nothing to do with the gospel of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. To the contrary, she was established through the power of the state, not the power of the Holy Spirit. The emperor that established her power did so for purely political reasons, the establishment of his authority above all civil, or religious entities of the day.

 As the emperor of Rome, Constantine was already the head of all the pagan religions of that empire, and was himself a devout worshipper of the sun. His supposed conversion to Christianity was nothing more than a political ploy to be the head of this new religion also.  Thus his purpose was, as already stated, "First to bring the diverse judgments formed by all nations respecting the Deity to a condition, as it were, of settled uniformity." This settled uniformity was to be under his authority, and complete control. Therefore, the establishment of the Church of Rome was brought about by the selfish motives of a pagan emperor who would embrace Christianity as a means of obtaining his goal. Not to mention the selfish motives and ambitions of apostate Christians who were themselves seeking the power, and prestige of this world.

Apostate Christianity, having entered the stage of the politics of this world, has never ceased to be entangled in the same. She is ever entrenched in the political strife, struggles for supremacy, and unquenchable thirst for power of the same. The Church of Rome is the Mother of all supposed Christian institutions which have become more concerned with the politics of this world, and its struggles for power, than the fulfilling of the gospel commission.  “And this gospel of the kingdom shall be preached in all the world for a witness unto all nations; and then shall the end come.”  ( Matt. 24:14 )

The following are more historical quotes, and facts regarding the establishment, or re-establishment of the Church of Rome’s authority. As a political entity of this world, her authority, and influence have continually, and are continually being challenged by others of the same. The history of her political struggles, and alliances with the kings of this earth, are sufficient proof that she is the Mother Of Harlots, who commits fornication with the kings of the earth. Thus, this identifying mark is fulfilled in her history. Of the many books that could be studied, for a more detailed history of her politics, the following are recommended by the writer. The Great Empires of Prophecy, and The Two Republics, both written by Alonzo Jones.

Gratian was but the tool of the bishops. Ambrose was at that time bishop of Milan, and never was episcopal ambition more arrogantly asserted than in that insolent prelate. Soon the mind of the bishop asserted the supremacy over that of the boy emperor, and Ambrose “wielded at his will the weak and irresolute Gratian.”  ( Milman- “History of Christianity,” book 3, chap. 8, par. 28. )

But above all things else that Gratian did, that which redounded most to the glory of the Catholic Church was his choice of Theodosius as associate emperor. Valens was killed in a battle with the Goths, A.D. 378. A stronger hand than that of a youth of nineteen was required to hold the reins of government in the East. In the establishment of the Catholic Church, the place of Theodosius is second only to that of Constantine. About the beginning of the year 380 he was baptized by the Catholic bishop of Thessalonica, and immediately afterward he issued the following edict: —

“It is our pleasure that the nations which are governed by our clemency and moderation, should steadfastly adhere to the religion which was taught by St. Peter to the Romans, which faithful tradition has preserved, and which is now professed by the pontiff Damasus, and by Peter, bishop of Alexandria, a man of apostolic holiness. According to the discipline of the apostles, and the doctrine of the gospel, let us believe the sole deity of the Father, the Son, and the Holy Ghost: under an equal majesty, and a pious Trinity. We authorize the followers of this doctrine to assume the title of Catholic Christians; and as we judge that all others are extravagant madmen, we brand them with the infamous name of “heretics,” and declare that their conventicles shall no longer usurp the respectable appellation of churches. Besides the condemnation of divine justice, they must expect to suffer the severe penalties which our authority, guided by heavenly wisdom, shall think proper to inflict upon them.”  ( Gibbon’s “Decline and Fall,” chap. 27, par. 6. )

This law was issued in the names of the three emperors, Gratian, Valentinian II, and Theodosius. “Thus the religion of the whole Roman world was enacted by two feeble boys and a rude Spanish soldier.”  ( Milman- “History of Christianity,” book 3, chap. 9, par. 1. )

In the supremacy of the papacy, Justinian holds the same place as does Constantine and Theodosius in the establishment of the Catholic Church. “Among the titles of greatness, the name ‘Pious’ was most pleasing to his ears; to promote the temporal and spiritual interests of the church was the serious business of his life; and the duty of father of his country was often sacrificed to that of defender of the faith.”  ( Gibbon - “Decline and Fall,” chap. xlvii, par. 23. )

“The emperor Justinian unites in himself the most opposite vices, — insatiable rapacity and lavish prodigality, intense pride and contemptible weakness, unmeasured ambition and dastardly cowardice.... In the Christian emperor, seem to meet the crimes of those who won or secured their empire by assassination of all whom they feared, the passion for public diversions without the accomplishments of Nero or the brute strength of Commodus, the dotage of Claudius.”  ( Milman - “History of Latin Christianity,” book 3, chap. 4, par. 2. )

In the year 532, Justinian issued an edict declaring his intention “to unite all men in one faith.” Whether they were Jews, Gentiles, or Christians, all who did not within three months profess and embrace the Catholic faith, were by the edict “declared infamous, and as such excluded from all employments both civil and military; rendered incapable of leaving anything by will; and all their estates confiscated, whether real or personal.” As a result of this cruel edict, “Great numbers were driven from their habitations with their wives and children, stripped and naked. Others betook themselves to flight, carrying with them what they could conceal, for their support and maintenance; but they were plundered of what little they had, and many of them inhumanly massacred.”  ( Bower - “History of the Popes,” Boniface 2, par. 2. )


THE CODE OF OUR LORD
THE MOST SACRED EMPEROR JUSTINIAN.
SECOND EDITION.

BOOK 1.



TITLE 1.
CONCERNING THE MOST EXALTED TRINITY AND THE 
CATHOLIC FAITH AND PROVIDING THAT NO ONE 
SHALL DARE TO PUBLICLY OPPOSE THEM.
   1. The Emperors Gratian, Valentinian, and Theodosius to the people of the City of Constantinople.
   We desire that all peoples subject to Our benign Empire shall live under the same religion that the Divine Peter, the Apostle, gave to the Romans, and which the said religion declares was introduced by himself, and which it is well known that the Pontiff Damascus, and Peter, Bishop of Alexandria, a man of apostolic sanctity, embraced; that is to say, in accordance with the rules of apostolic discipline and the evangelical doctrine, we should believe that the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit constitute a single Deity, endowed with equal majesty, and united in the Holy Trinity.
   (1) We order all those who follow this law to assume the name of Catholic Christians, and considering others as demented and insane, We order that they shall bear the infamy of heresy; and when the Divine vengeance which they merit has been appeased, they shall afterwards be punished in accordance with Our resentment, which we have acquired from the judgment of Heaven.
    Dated at Thessalonica, on the third of the Kalends of March, during the Consulate of Gratian, Consul for the fifth time, and Theodosius.
   2. The Same Emperors to Eutropius, Praetorian Prefect.
   Let no place be afforded to heretics for the conduct of their ceremonies, and let no occasion be offered for them to display the insanity of their obstinate minds. Let all persons know that if any privilege has been fraudulently obtained by means of any rescript whatsoever, by persons of this kind, it will not be valid. Let all bodies of heretics be prevented from holding unlawful assemblies, and let the name of the only and the greatest God be celebrated everywhere, and let the observance of the Nicene Creed, recently transmitted to Our ancestors, and firmly established by the testimony and practice of Divine Religion, always remain secure.
   (1) Moreover, he who is an adherent of the Nicene Faith, and a true believer in the Catholic religion, should be understood to be one [pg. 10] who believes that Almighty God and Christ, the son of God, are one person, God of God, Light of Light; and let no one, by rejection, dishonor the Holy Spirit, whom we expect, and have received from the Supreme Parent of all things, in whom the sentiment of a pure and undefiled faith flourishes, as well as the belief in the undivided substance of a Holy Trinity, which true believers indicate by the Greek word These things, indeed do not require further proof, and should be respected.
   (2) Let those who do not accept those doctrines cease to apply the name of true religion to their fraudulent belief; and let them be branded with their open crimes, and, having been removed from the threshhold of all churches, be utterly excluded from them, as We forbid all heretics to hold unlawful assemblies within cities. If, however, any seditious outbreak should be attempted, We order them to be driven outside the the walls of the City, with relentless violence, and We direct that all Catholic Churches, throughout the entire world, shall be placed under the control of the orthodox bishops who have embraced the Nicene Creed.
   Given at Constantinople, on the fourth of the ides of January, under the Consulate of Flavius Eucharius and Flavius Syagrius.
    3. The Emperor Martian to Palladius, Praetorian Prefect.
   No one, whether he belongs to the clergy, the army, or to any other condition of men, shall, with a view to causing a tumult and giving occasion to treachery, attempt to discuss the Christian religion publicly in the presence of an assembled and listening crowd; for he commits an injury against the most reverend Synod who publicly contradicts what has once been decided and properly established; as those matters relative to the Christian faith have been settled by the priests who met at Chalcedony by Our order, and are known to be in conformity with the apostolic explanations and conclusions of the three hundred and eight Holy Fathers assembled in Nicea, and the hundred and fifty who met in this Imperial City; for the violators of this law shall not go unpunished, because they not only oppose the true faith, but they also profane its venerated mysteries by engaging in contests of this kind with Jews and Pagans. Therefore, if any person who has ventured to publicly discuss religious matters is a member of the clergy, he shall be removed from his order; if he is a member of the army, he shall be degraded; and any others who are guilty of this offence, who are freemen, shall be banished from this most Sacred City, and shall be subjected to the punishment prescribed by law according to the power of the court; and if they are slaves, they shall undergo severest penalty.
   Given at Constantinople, on the eighth of the Ides of February, under the consulship of Patricius.
   4. John, Bishop of the City of Rome, to his most Illustrious and Merciful Son Justinian.
   Among the conspicuous reasons for praising your wisdom and gentleness, Most Christian of Emperors, and one which radiates light [pg. 11]as a star, is the fact that through love of the Faith, and actuated by zeal for charity, you, learned in ecclesiastical discipline, have preserved reverence for the See of Rome, and have subjected all things to its authority, and have given it unity. The following precept was communicated to its founder, that is to say, the first of the Apostles, by the mouth of the Lord, namely: "Feed my lambs."
   This See is indeed the head of all churches, as the rules of the Fathers and the decrees of the Emperors assert, and the words of your most reverend piety testify. It is therefore claimed that what the Scriptures state, namely, "By Me Kings reign, and the Powers dispense justice;" will be accomplished in you. For there is nothing which shines with a more brilliant lustre than genuine faith when displayed by a prince, since there is nothing which prevents destruction as true religion does, for as both of them have reference to the Author of Life and Light, they disperse darkness and prevent apostasy. Wherefore, Most Glorious of Princes, the Divine Power is implored by the prayers of all to preserve your piety in this ardor for the Faith, in this devotion of your mind, and in this zeal for true religion, without failure, during your entire existence. For we believe that this is for the benefit of the Holy Churches, as it was written, "The king rules with his lips," and again, "The heart of the King is in the hand of God, and it will incline to whatever side God wishes"; that is to say, that He may confirm your empire, and maintain your kingdoms for the peace of the Church and the unity of religion; guard their authority, and preserve him in that sublime tranquillity which is so grateful to him; and no small change is granted by the Divine Power through whose agency a divided church is not afflicted by any griefs or subject to any reproaches. For it is written, "A just king, who is upon his throne, has no reason to apprehend any misfortune."
   We have received with all due respect the evidences of your serenity, through Hypatius and Demetrius, most holy men, my brothers and fellow-bishops, from whose statements we have learned that you have promulgated an Edict addressed to your faithful people, and dictated by your love of the Faith, for the purpose of overthrowing the designs of heretics, which is in accordance with the evangelical tenets, and which we have confirmed by our authority with the consent of our brethren and fellow bishops, for the reason that it is in conformity with the apostolic doctrine.


   The following is the text of the letter of the Emperor Justinian, Victorious, Pious, Happy, Renowned, Triumphant, always Augustus, to John, Patriarch, and most Holy Archbishop of the fair City of Rome:

   With honor to the Apostolic See, and to your Holiness, which is, and always has been remembered in Our prayers, both now and formerly, and honoring your happiness, as is proper in the case of one who is considered as a father, We hasten to bring to the knowledge of Your Holiness everything relating to the condition of the Church, as We have always had the greatest desire to preserve the unity of your Apostolic See, and the condition of the Holy Churches of God, as they [pg. 12] exist at the present time, that they may remain without disturbance or opposition. Therefore, We have exerted Ourselves to unite all the priests of the East and subject them to the See of Your Holiness, and hence the questions which have at present arisen, although they are manifest and free from doubt, and according to the doctrines of your Apostolic See, are constantly firmly observed and preached by all priests, We have still considered it necessary that they should be brought to the attention of Your Holiness. For we do not suffer anything which has reference to the state of the Church, even though what causes difficulty may be clear and free from doubt, to be discussed without being brought to the notice of Your Holiness, because you are the head of all the Holy Churches, for We shall exert Ourselves in every way (as has already been stated), to increase the honor and authority of your See.


One Hundred and Thirty-First New Constitution.
The Emperor Justinian to Peter, Most Glorious Imperial Praetorian Prefect.

PREFACE.
   We enact the present law with reference to ecclesiastical rules and privileges and other subjects in which holy churches and religious establishments are intrusted.
Chapter I.
   Concerning Four Holy Councils.
   Therefore We order that the sacred, ecclesiastical rules which were adopted and confirmed by the four Holy Councils, that is to say, that of the three hundred and eighteen bishops held at Nicea, that of the one hundred and fifty bishops held at Constantinople, the first one of Ephesus, where Nestorius was condemned, and the one assembled at Chalcedon, where Eutyches and Nestorius were anathematized, shall be considered as laws. We accept the dogmas of these four Councils as sacred writings, and observe their rules as legally effective.
Chapter II.
   Concerning The Precedence of Partriarchs.
   Hence, in accordance with the provisions of these Councils, We order that the Most Holy Pope of ancient Rome shall hold the first rank of all the Pontiffs, but the Most Blessed Archbishop of Constantinople, or New Rome, shall occupy the second place after the Holy Apostolic See of ancient Rome, which shall take precedence over all other sees.

The Church of Rome presently entertains diplomatic relations with 183 states or nations of this earth. She has been, she is, and she ever will be, a political entity of this world. This is why she ever pursues greater power and influence in the same. She does not believe in the separation of church and state. Her rise to power within this country, is in conjunction with the crumbling of the wall which separates the two. 

The annals of history testify, that there is no true freedom without a separation of church and state. Maintaining freedom for our future, depends upon remembering the lessons of our past.

Having established BABYLON'S fornication with the kings of the earth, we will now examine her intoxication of them and the inhabitants of the earth in the next chapter.

CHAPTER 8
THE INTOXICATING INFLUENCE OF THE WINE OF BABYLON

Rev 17:1 And there came one of the seven angels which had the seven vials, and talked with me, saying unto me, Come hither; I will shew unto thee the judgment of the great whore that sitteth upon many waters: 2 With whom the kings of the earth have committed fornication, and the inhabitants of the earth have been made drunk with the wine of her fornication. 3 So he carried me away in the spirit into the wilderness: and I saw a woman sit upon a scarlet coloured beast, full of names of blasphemy, having seven heads and ten horns. 4 And the woman was arrayed in purple and scarlet colour, and decked with gold and precious stones and pearls, having a golden cup in her hand full of abominations and filthiness of her fornication: 5 And upon her forehead was a name written, MYSTERY, BABYLON THE GREAT, THE MOTHER OF HARLOTS AND ABOMINATIONS OF THE EARTH.

Having already examined the issue of fornication and its spiritual implications, let us now move on to drunkenness. What does it mean to be spiritually drunk? Having more than just a little experiential knowledge of drunkenness and or drug induced inebriation, I can say with certainty that such is akin to self induced temporary madness. Countless others apart from myself can testify no doubt, that if they were ever going to say or do something stupid, it was far more likely to happen while under the influence of drugs or alcohol. That is, if they can remember what they said or did under these influences at all.

Many may and do partake in much more moderate amounts, avoiding such stupors and or black outs. Nevertheless, they are simply more moderately impairing their mental and physical motor and intellectual abilities. Either slowing down, or speeding up our natural God given thought processes. Which results in different choices and actions according to the same, than we would make and or act upon otherwise. This being true on a spiritual level as well of course. We simply do not have the same outlook or clarity while under the influence, that we have naturally. A very potentially dangerous state, both in and of this potentially dangerous world, and concerning the very potentially dangerous deceptions existing within it. Therefore are we admonished by the holy scriptures -

1Th 5:1 But of the times and the seasons, brethren, ye have no need that I write unto you. 2 For yourselves know perfectly that the day of the Lord so cometh as a thief in the night. 3 For when they shall say, Peace and safety; then sudden destruction cometh upon them, as travail upon a woman with child; and they shall not escape. 4 But ye, brethren, are not in darkness, that that day should overtake you as a thief. 5 Ye are all the children of light, and the children of the day: we are not of the night, nor of darkness. 6 Therefore let us not sleep, as do others; but let us watch and be sober. 7 For they that sleep sleep in the night; and they that be drunken are drunken in the night. 8 But let us, who are of the day, be sober, putting on the breastplate of faith and love; and for an helmet, the hope of salvation. 9 For God hath not appointed us to wrath, but to obtain salvation by our Lord Jesus Christ, 10 Who died for us, that, whether we wake or sleep, we should live together with him.

1Pe 1:13 Wherefore gird up the loins of your mind, be sober, and hope to the end for the grace that is to be brought unto you at the revelation of Jesus Christ; 14 As obedient children, not fashioning yourselves according to the former lusts in your ignorance: 15 But as he which hath called you is holy, so be ye holy in all manner of conversation; 16 Because it is written, Be ye holy; for I am holy.

1Pe 4:1 Forasmuch then as Christ hath suffered for us in the flesh, arm yourselves likewise with the same mind: for he that hath suffered in the flesh hath ceased from sin; 2 That he no longer should live the rest of his time in the flesh to the lusts of men, but to the will of God. 3 For the time past of our life may suffice us to have wrought the will of the Gentiles, when we walked in lasciviousness, lusts, excess of wine, revellings, banquetings, and abominable idolatries: 4 Wherein they think it strange that ye run not with them to the same excess of riot, speaking evil of you: 5 Who shall give account to him that is ready to judge the quick and the dead. 6 For for this cause was the gospel preached also to them that are dead, that they might be judged according to men in the flesh, but live according to God in the spirit. 7 But the end of all things is at hand: be ye therefore sober, and watch unto prayer.

1Pe 5:6 Humble yourselves therefore under the mighty hand of God, that he may exalt you in due time: 7 Casting all your care upon him; for he careth for you. 8 Be sober, be vigilant; because your adversary the devil, as a roaring lion, walketh about, seeking whom he may devour: 9 Whom resist stedfast in the faith, knowing that the same afflictions are accomplished in your brethren that are in the world. 10 But the God of all grace, who hath called us unto his eternal glory by Christ Jesus, after that ye have suffered a while, make you perfect, stablish, strengthen, settle you. 11 To him be glory and dominion for ever and ever. Amen.

Tit 2:1 But speak thou the things which become sound doctrine: 2 That the aged men be sober, grave, temperate, sound in faith, in charity, in patience. 3 The aged women likewise, that they be in behaviour as becometh holiness, not false accusers, not given to much wine, teachers of good things; 4 That they may teach the young women to be sober, to love their husbands, to love their children, 5 To be discreet, chaste, keepers at home, good, obedient to their own husbands, that the word of God be not blasphemed. 6 Young men likewise exhort to be sober minded. 7 In all things shewing thyself a pattern of good works: in doctrine shewing uncorruptness, gravity, sincerity, 8 Sound speech, that cannot be condemned; that he that is of the contrary part may be ashamed, having no evil thing to say of you.


As is most obvious from the scriptures quoted above, sobriety is an intricate part of the faithful Christian experience. Sound and uncorrupted biblical doctrine being closely associated with soberness as well. Just as alcohol and drugs alter the mind unto different or contrary thoughts and actions, so false unbiblical doctrines alter spiritual perceptions unto false unbiblical thoughts and actions as well. They make the believer of them, spiritually drunk. Leading to thoughts and actions which are contrary to the sober minded truths and principles of holy scripture.

This can, has been, and is presently being demonstrated among individuals, societies, religious and political institutions, and nations today. All of whom are rapidly departing from the biblically inspired and principled examples of personal, societal, institutional, political, and national developments of recent history. Which history most prominently included a return to biblical literacy, understanding, and piety on the world stage of all of the above. In the personal, societal, institutional, religious, political, and national effect of the Protestant Reformation. Sola Scriptura, Sola Gratia, Sola Christo.

Within a couple of centuries of the departure of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ and His apostles, false doctrines and practices entered into the church which the apostle Paul warned of (Acts 20:28-31), along with others (Jude 1:3&4, 2Pe 3:14-17). These false doctrines having intoxicated and polluted the peoples of the sanctuary of God, gradually changed the churches perspective and mission from the thoughts and inclinations of heavenly endeavors, to the thoughts and inclinations of worldly minded gains of power and prestige. The end result being the same for the new covenant church, as it was for apostate Israel of the old covenant. They became more morally deprived and tyrannical than the heathen peoples around them.

Being spiritually drunk and impaired by false doctrines, they increasingly lost the power of the Holy Spirit of God to convict and convert through the powers of godly persuasion. In this inebriated state, they therefore sought to replace that power with the powers that be of this world. That is the power of the temporal state. No longer possessing the power of the Holy Spirit of God to convict and convert hearts concerning the truth, they had no recourse but to lean on the power of the state to enforce the mixture of truth and error which they propagated and sought to sustain. They succeeded, and established the properly referred to, Dark Ages. Becoming worse and more abusive themselves, than the heathens before or around them, they claimed to be superior to and above. This was the establishment of Roman Catholicism, Babylon the great, and the spiritual whore of the new covenant era.

Having hidden the truth first through false doctrine enforced upon all through the worldly powers of the state, she then literally outlawed the holy scriptures in the language of the many different nations and peoples she lorded herself over. That they might not have access to the scriptures which the many who still contended with her false doctrines, used to do so. Therefore were these truly the Dark Ages, in that they removed the light of God’s written word and testimony from the view of the peoples of this world. As far as possible in any case. Nevertheless, there were always those who kept and prized the holy scriptures, and shared them with as many peoples as possible under such grim circumstance, in their own languages.

At the right time and in accordance with God’s will though, many educated Roman Catholics themselves, began examining the holy scriptures and noted the difference between the church and its teachings. These men began protesting the false teachings and abusive powers the church taught and exercised, calling for reforms regarding the same. Refusing all such, Rome rather excommunicated these men and outlawed all of their writings and teachings right along with owning the scriptures at all. Let alone in ones own vernacular. Unfortunately for the Church of Rome, the invention of the printing press and an ever increasing number of people obtaining the scriptures and the writings of these reformers, made her intended purposes virtually impossible.

More and more people obtained the scriptures and the writings of these reformers, and more and more Roman Catholics abandoned their faith in the Catholic Clergy in favor of them. Having broken the chains which apostate “Christianity” and the state had bound them with, they never returned. A very great many choosing banishment, imprisonment, torture, and even death, above returning to a faith they no longer believed. Which proved itself evil by the afore mentioned abuses. People began to flee Babylon in large numbers, regardless of her illicit relations with, and worldly power of the kings of this earth intent upon preventing all such. To the contrary, they came to understand that such was in fact a biblically prophetic sign that she was in fact, BABYLON THE GREAT.

The ensuing increasing numbers of converts, published bibles in the vernacular, and writings of these Reformers, inevitably took their effect. Individual lives, institutions, societies, religious sects, political entities, and even entire nations were convicted, converted, and transformed. Ultimately into more biblically based, influenced, and exercised governments and peoples. The apostate model of elite Clergy and Royalty in bed together subjugating all others under their visibly life threatening and abusive thumbs, was rejected large scale.

Democracies and Republics were formed with the intent of government by and for the people, rather than rule by an elitist class either born or ordained into class, wealth, and or power privileges above all others. The rights and liberties of the individual, being protected from the over bearing reach of the rich, powerful, or influential who would abuse such in their own favor. These are the ideals which freedom enhancing teachings and principles of holy scripture espouse. The large numbers of people converted by them, were joined by many other freedom seeking peoples in forming societies and nations promoting the same. These United States of America being themselves the product of the maturation of such biblically inspired high calling. As is obvious from the opening words of our Declaration of Independence.

Quote
The Declaration of Independence
 
IN CONGRESS, July 4, 1776.

The unanimous Declaration of the thirteen united States of America,

When in the Course of human events, it becomes necessary for one people to dissolve the political bands which have connected them with another, and to assume among the powers of the earth, the separate and equal station to which the Laws of Nature and of Nature’s God entitle them, a decent respect to the opinions of mankind requires that they should declare the causes which impel them to the separation.

We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness.–That to secure these rights, Governments are instituted among Men, deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed, –That whenever any Form of Government becomes destructive of these ends, it is the Right of the People to alter or to abolish it, and to institute new Government, laying its foundation on such principles and organizing its powers in such form, as to them shall seem most likely to effect their Safety and Happiness……………………………..

The above biblically inspired principles of the establishment of the God given rights of humanity to govern itself as sovereign individuals and or nations supporting the same, were and are backed up by our Constitution as well. These are the biblically established principles being abandoned today by an ever increasing population. Populations of either Roman Catholic and or other religiously inspired humanism, or the atheistic inspired humanism birthed as a political entity in France. The result of their wholesale rejection of unchallenged and abusive Roman Catholic Church and State amalgamation, and the concept of a loving God as well, altogether. This is the road humanity is presently heading down at ever increasing speeds, straight toward the destination of Rome’s intended designs. In the next chapter, we will examine the madness and folly of humanity for doing so.

Mat 7:12 Therefore all things whatsoever ye would that men should do to you, do ye even so to them: for this is the law and the prophets. 13 Enter ye in at the strait gate: for wide is the gate, and broad is the way, that leadeth to destruction, and many there be which go in thereat: 14 Because strait is the gate, and narrow is the way, which leadeth unto life, and few there be that find it.

CHAPTER 9
MADNESS AND FOLLY


Jer 51:5 For Israel hath not been forsaken, nor Judah of his God, of the LORD of hosts; though their land was filled with sin against the Holy One of Israel. 6 Flee out of the midst of Babylon, and deliver every man his soul: be not cut off in her iniquity; for this is the time of the LORD'S vengeance; he will render unto her a recompence. 7 Babylon hath been a golden cup in the LORD'S hand, that made all the earth drunken: the nations have drunken of her wine; therefore the nations are mad. 8 Babylon is suddenly fallen and destroyed: howl for her; take balm for her pain, if so be she may be healed. 9 We would have healed Babylon, but she is not healed: forsake her, and let us go every one into his own country: for her judgment reacheth unto heaven, and is lifted up even to the skies.

What is the drunkenness and madness caused by Babylon’s wine? Who drinks it, and why? Why was her wine said to effect so many nations and even all of them according to prophetic utterance during the old covenant? Why does it have the same effect during this new covenant? What is so abominable about her wine or influence, to the extent that prophecy declares her golden cup to be filled with the abominations of the earth? As is always and should be the case, we will let the scriptures answer these questions for us.

The book of Jeremiah chapter 25 describes the processes leading to the madness brought about by the wine of Babylon. The wine which God Himself makes all nations drink. Why did God do this, and why is He going to do it again? Let’s read the chapter which tells us exactly why.

Jer 25:1 The word that came to Jeremiah concerning all the people of Judah in the fourth year of Jehoiakim the son of Josiah king of Judah, that was the first year of Nebuchadrezzar king of Babylon; 2 The which Jeremiah the prophet spake unto all the people of Judah, and to all the inhabitants of Jerusalem, saying, 3 From the thirteenth year of Josiah the son of Amon king of Judah, even unto this day, that is the three and twentieth year, the word of the LORD hath come unto me, and I have spoken unto you, rising early and speaking; but ye have not hearkened. 4 And the LORD hath sent unto you all his servants the prophets, rising early and sending them; but ye have not hearkened, nor inclined your ear to hear. 5 They said, Turn ye again now every one from his evil way, and from the evil of your doings, and dwell in the land that the LORD hath given unto you and to your fathers for ever and ever: 6 And go not after other gods to serve them, and to worship them, and provoke me not to anger with the works of your hands; and I will do you no hurt. 7 Yet ye have not hearkened unto me, saith the LORD; that ye might provoke me to anger with the works of your hands to your own hurt. 8 Therefore thus saith the LORD of hosts; Because ye have not heard my words, 9 Behold, I will send and take all the families of the north, saith the LORD, and Nebuchadrezzar the king of Babylon, my servant, and will bring them against this land, and against the inhabitants thereof, and against all these nations round about, and will utterly destroy them, and make them an astonishment, and an hissing, and perpetual desolations. 10 Moreover I will take from them the voice of mirth, and the voice of gladness, the voice of the bridegroom, and the voice of the bride, the sound of the millstones, and the light of the candle. 11 And this whole land shall be a desolation, and an astonishment; and these nations shall serve the king of Babylon seventy years. 12 And it shall come to pass, when seventy years are accomplished, that I will punish the king of Babylon, and that nation, saith the LORD, for their iniquity, and the land of the Chaldeans, and will make it perpetual desolations. 13 And I will bring upon that land all my words which I have pronounced against it, even all that is written in this book, which Jeremiah hath prophesied against all the nations. 14 For many nations and great kings shall serve themselves of them also: and I will recompense them according to their deeds, and according to the works of their own hands. 15 For thus saith the LORD God of Israel unto me; Take the wine cup of this fury at my hand, and cause all the nations, to whom I send thee, to drink it. 16 And they shall drink, and be moved, and be mad, because of the sword that I will send among them. 17 Then took I the cup at the LORD'S hand, and made all the nations to drink, unto whom the LORD had sent me: 18 To wit, Jerusalem, and the cities of Judah, and the kings thereof, and the princes thereof, to make them a desolation, an astonishment, an hissing, and a curse; as it is this day; 19 Pharaoh king of Egypt, and his servants, and his princes, and all his people; 20 And all the mingled people, and all the kings of the land of Uz, and all the kings of the land of the Philistines, and Ashkelon, and Azzah, and Ekron, and the remnant of Ashdod, 21 Edom, and Moab, and the children of Ammon, 22 And all the kings of Tyrus, and all the kings of Zidon, and the kings of the isles which are beyond the sea, 23 Dedan, and Tema, and Buz, and all that are in the utmost corners, 24 And all the kings of Arabia, and all the kings of the mingled people that dwell in the desert, 25 And all the kings of Zimri, and all the kings of Elam, and all the kings of the Medes, 26 And all the kings of the north, far and near, one with another, and all the kingdoms of the world, which are upon the face of the earth: and the king of Sheshach shall drink after them. 27 Therefore thou shalt say unto them, Thus saith the LORD of hosts, the God of Israel; Drink ye, and be drunken, and spue, and fall, and rise no more, because of the sword which I will send among you. 28 And it shall be, if they refuse to take the cup at thine hand to drink, then shalt thou say unto them, Thus saith the LORD of hosts; Ye shall certainly drink. 29 For, lo, I begin to bring evil on the city which is called by my name, and should ye be utterly unpunished? Ye shall not be unpunished: for I will call for a sword upon all the inhabitants of the earth, saith the LORD of hosts. 30 Therefore prophesy thou against them all these words, and say unto them, The LORD shall roar from on high, and utter his voice from his holy habitation; he shall mightily roar upon his habitation; he shall give a shout, as they that tread the grapes, against all the inhabitants of the earth. 31 A noise shall come even to the ends of the earth; for the LORD hath a controversy with the nations, he will plead with all flesh; he will give them that are wicked to the sword, saith the LORD. 32 Thus saith the LORD of hosts, Behold, evil shall go forth from nation to nation, and a great whirlwind shall be raised up from the coasts of the earth. 33 And the slain of the LORD shall be at that day from one end of the earth even unto the other end of the earth: they shall not be lamented, neither gathered, nor buried; they shall be dung upon the ground. 34 Howl, ye shepherds, and cry; and wallow yourselves in the ashes, ye principal of the flock: for the days of your slaughter and of your dispersions are accomplished; and ye shall fall like a pleasant vessel. 35 And the shepherds shall have no way to flee, nor the principal of the flock to escape. 36 A voice of the cry of the shepherds, and an howling of the principal of the flock, shall be heard: for the LORD hath spoiled their pasture. 37 And the peaceable habitations are cut down because of the fierce anger of the LORD. 38 He hath forsaken his covert, as the lion: for their land is desolate because of the fierceness of the oppressor, and because of his fierce anger.

The prophetic utterance and implications of the above chapter, reach far beyond literal Israel, Babylon, and all the other nations being addressed at that time. Which we will examine in greater detail further down the line. The chapter itself moves from the scene of these literal nations at their time, to the second coming of Christ, and God’s controversy with all the nations and all the inhabitants of this world. The Great Controversy.

For now though, we will simply address the root cause of the madness these nations suffered from the wine which God made them drink. Which madness has plagued the world over and again throughout history, and is increasingly doing so again on a global scale. The unity of humanity being sought regarding this madness, will in fact split this entire world in two. Preparing it to be cleansed once and for all by the personal return of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ.  And what is the root cause of such madness and insanity, but the same as that which we have already been addressing, and will and must address again.

They would not hearken unto the voice and warnings of God. They would not keep His commandments. And who are they, but the children of Israel first and foremost. When God’s own professed people who are supposed to be a light upon the hill of this world, turn that light off in disobedience to God’s word and teachings, the world is left in overwhelming darkness and madness.

Psa 119:104 Through thy precepts I get understanding: therefore I hate every false way. 105 Thy word is a lamp unto my feet, and a light unto my path. 106 I have sworn, and I will perform it, that I will keep thy righteous judgments…………

127 Therefore I love thy commandments above gold; yea, above fine gold. 128 Therefore I esteem all thy precepts concerning all things to be right; and I hate every false way. 129 Thy testimonies are wonderful: therefore doth my soul keep them. 130 The entrance of thy words giveth light; it giveth understanding unto the simple. 131 I opened my mouth, and panted: for I longed for thy commandments.

Isa 8:20 To the law and to the testimony: if they speak not according to this word, it is because there is no light in them.


Mt 5:13 Ye are the salt of the earth: but if the salt have lost his savour, wherewith shall it be salted? it is thenceforth good for nothing, but to be cast out, and to be trodden under foot of men. 14 Ye are the light of the world. A city that is set on an hill cannot be hid. 15 Neither do men light a candle, and put it under a bushel, but on a candlestick; and it giveth light unto all that are in the house. 16 Let your light so shine before men, that they may see your good works, and glorify your Father which is in heaven. 17 Think not that I am come to destroy the law, or the prophets: I am not come to destroy, but to fulfil. 18 For verily I say unto you, Till heaven and earth pass, one jot or one tittle shall in no wise pass from the law, till all be fulfilled. 19 Whosoever therefore shall break one of these least commandments, and shall teach men so, he shall be called the least in the kingdom of heaven: but whosoever shall do and teach them, the same shall be called great in the kingdom of heaven. 20 For I say unto you, That except your righteousness shall exceed the righteousness of the scribes and Pharisees, ye shall in no case enter into the kingdom of heaven.

How can people who cannot even see the light of what is right or wrong, act or do right? People in the dark stumble and fall, and head in the wrong and often very dangerous directions. God’s word is spiritual light and knowledge leading to life. Those who reject or refuse it, are left in the dark. They therefore stumble through life accordingly, straight toward danger and death.

No darkness of this world however, is as deep and dangerous, as the darkness following God’s own professed people rejecting or refusing the light of His word. Leaving the world without the one source of light which God never intends should be extinguished. Which very thing God established His nation, church, and peoples to prevent. When their light goes out, they become worse than all others, and drag the world down with them into darkness, chaos, and madness.

This happened in the world before the flood, when humanities thoughts became evil only and always unto destruction. It happened to Israel and her surrounding nations several times over. It happened to Babylon itself within seventy years of being used by God in judgment against Israel for the same. This, after she herself was converted from within by certain godly captives from Israel. As her rapid conversion began through one man Nebuchadnezzar, so it also rapidly ended through one man in his grandson. This is the fatal flaw of monarchial, or dictatorial governments.  A topic we will examine later in greater detail, concerning the spiritual applications of the new covenant church, and spiritual Babylon.

It happened in and to the Roman empire in like manner as Babylon, concerning the empires “conversion” to “Christianity”.  Followed by the rapid decline of the empire and “Christianity” as a result. This as the “Christian” churches light went out in disobedience to God’s word and commands in uniting with the state and paganism as Israel itself had so many times. Resulting in what many still term the dark ages, and rightly so.

It is, has been, and continues to happen today as the world increasingly turns from the light of God’s word rekindled and given back to humanity through the Divinely inspired Protestant Reformation. Which pulled this world out of the dark ages brought upon it by apostate “Christianity” forming the Roman Catholic church state, or state church, which ever one prefers. Freeing the minds and consciences of humanity once again from the chains of darkness which always ensues extinguishing the light of God’s word. Inspiring forms of government and religion which neither coerce or compel any concerning the same, save upon the most basic respect of human rights and or dignities toward each other.

Therefore today are we witnessing the maddening effects once again of extinguishing the light of God’s word. Extinguishing the Word’s uplifting influence upon individuals, societies, nations, tongues, and peoples. Therefore also today, do we see the influence of the Church of Rome who presided over the dark ages, continually rising to new and greater heights once again. In greater supportive relations with the elitist minded religious, political, so called “scientific”, economic, industrial, and corporate leaders of the day. Financing, promoting, legislating, and forcing compliance of all others to their own designs of false unity in submission and subjugation to themselves. Submission to other fallen beings such as themselves and the conglomerates they form, instead of God and the light of His word.

Is this not the very madness humanity escaped from in emerging from the dark ages at the hands of this very same institution? By which everything is confused, and chaotically tangled into an unidentifiable mass of darkness. This to the extent already, that the most obvious physical realities right in front of our faces are regularly denied by ever increasing numbers of people. Who can’t even tell who are boys and girls, or men or women. Who want to teach our children that knowing such is not possible but by what each individual simply chooses one way or another. Is this not the logical end of defying the word’s and commands of He who alone is, and there is no other? Ignoring the words of the One who not only created all, but sustains all, including ourselves? Yes, it is the darkness that settles upon individuals, societies, and nations who reject the light, truth, and holy standards of God’s word and commands. Not as enforced by kings or dictators, but rather by personal conviction of the individual unto proper self government among those alone therefore capable freedom and liberty. Therefore capable of establishing and sustaining government for and by the people. God Himself warned Israel of the danger of kings, dictators, elitist leaders, or oligarchs, if you will.

1Sa 8:4 Then all the elders of Israel gathered themselves together, and came to Samuel unto Ramah, 5 And said unto him, Behold, thou art old, and thy sons walk not in thy ways: now make us a king to judge us like all the nations. 6 But the thing displeased Samuel, when they said, Give us a king to judge us. And Samuel prayed unto the LORD. 7 And the LORD said unto Samuel, Hearken unto the voice of the people in all that they say unto thee: for they have not rejected thee, but they have rejected me, that I should not reign over them. 8 According to all the works which they have done since the day that I brought them up out of Egypt even unto this day, wherewith they have forsaken me, and served other gods, so do they also unto thee. 9 Now therefore hearken unto their voice: howbeit yet protest solemnly unto them, and shew them the manner of the king that shall reign over them. 10 And Samuel told all the words of the LORD unto the people that asked of him a king. 11 And he said, This will be the manner of the king that shall reign over you: He will take your sons, and appoint them for himself, for his chariots, and to be his horsemen; and some shall run before his chariots. 12 And he will appoint him captains over thousands, and captains over fifties; and will set them to ear his ground, and to reap his harvest, and to make his instruments of war, and instruments of his chariots. 13 And he will take your daughters to be confectionaries, and to be cooks, and to be bakers. 14 And he will take your fields, and your vineyards, and your oliveyards, even the best of them, and give them to his servants. 15 And he will take the tenth of your seed, and of your vineyards, and give to his officers, and to his servants. 16 And he will take your menservants, and your maidservants, and your goodliest young men, and your asses, and put them to his work. 17 He will take the tenth of your sheep: and ye shall be his servants. 18 And ye shall cry out in that day because of your king which ye shall have chosen you; and the LORD will not hear you in that day.

Is this not the decision this world is making and or being deceived and forced into again? Yes it is. The rejection of government for and by people themselves, who are personally responsible enough to be self governed, which people alone are capable of forming and maintaining government for and by the people. Which governments work best when the high standards and light of God’s word are directly responsible for such high personal standards and practice. As exemplified in the peoples and governments formed during and shortly after the Protestant Reformation, leaving the dark ages behind. Providing a light also for the rest of the world to be influenced by. So it was, and so has this light been going out, as fewer and fewer maintain the standards and light of God’s world. While ancient enemies of the dark ages, and their new allies have been warring against the same light and standards as well, seeking to regain the usurped power, wealth, prestige, and place they lost because of the light of God’s word being given back to the world. So be it.

God is. He is reality and light. Apart from Him there is nothingness and darkness. While the world was reforming according to the light of God’s word, Individuals, churches, institutions, societies, towns, cities, and nations were progressing according to that light as well. The personal responsibility and freedom found in Christ’s salvation, constantly convicting the saved to higher and holier moral ground and action, spread throughout and permeated societies around them. Such is the nature of God’s word, and individuals who alone are capable of governing their owns selves first and foremost, unto government for and by the people. Able to grant and sustain true liberty and freedom, because the individuals of such societies are responsible enough themselves to do so. Such a people, and the societies which resulted, cast off the chains of darkness and resulting tyranny which follows it.

Therefore did the world cast off the chains and tyranny of elitist minded Popery and Monarchies, which abused power and the peoples they lorded their usurped powers over. Bible believing Christians did this first, by demanding their God given rights to self government in submission to God’s word, over and above those who demanded the opposite. Sacrificing their own lives rather than continue to submit to those who had usurped ungodly powers over and above even their Lord and Savior’s. At the opposite end were those who finally cast off the abusive power of these tyrants as well, in a violent outburst of aggression against those who had subjugated them unto abject poverty and misery. This in one violent, bloody, and murderous convulsion and revolution in France, bursting forth from utter despair under the thumbs of these usurping powers unto a new atheistic political entity in the world. 

The formation of the government of these United States of America upon matured Protestant and biblically guided principles, and the scenes leading up to and at the French Revolution, were a two edged sword inflicting a deadly wound upon the head of the combined papal and feudalist state. This beast of biblical prophecy ridden by Babylon the Great, met its end for a short while after this deadly wound by this double edged sword. Both bible believing Christians, and atheistic revolutionists rejecting its abusive power, though in very different ways. Not to mention their very different effects.
We will not follow this line of thinking any further for now, as we are concerning ourselves with the two women of prophecy, not the seven beasts of biblical prophecy. Though the two are intricately connected.

We will however pause and consider the following testimony from the past regarding Babylon’s preaching, practice, and effect the first time she developed the first beast of biblical prophecy, before it received a deadly wound. Which very processes she has been repeating now ever since that deadly wound in order to regain all she lost and more. The following quotes are from CHRIST AND ANTICHRIST, by Samuel J. Cassels, 1846.

Quote
The times also require this investigation. Throughout Europe, throughout the world, there is a revival of the Papal system. True, this revival is not to be considered as indicative of any very great triumphs. The best days of Popery have been numbered. The notions which men now entertain of popular liberty, and of the rights of conscience, the general intelligence that prevails, the recorded history of Papal oppression, the circulation of the Holy Scriptures, and above all, the word of God, all lead to the belief, that no efforts of the crafty agents of this crafty system, can ever give it the influence it has once exerted. “Tekel” is inscribed upon it; and some Cyrus will, ere long, be raised up, who shall dry up its waters, break down its gates of brass, and let oppressed humanity go free. No; it is not the ultimate triumph of this system we fear; it is the harm it may do in its death-struggle; it is the unnatural energies of its spasmodic dissolution, that we dread.

In America, particularly, is this investigation important. In all the countries over which it has triumphed, Popery, like the anaconda, has wound around its folds of art, of cunning, of superstition and of power, until, enclosing everything in its too friendly embraces, it has, with one tremendous effort, crushed the nation to death. It sends forth its missionaries; it gathers its schools and colleges; it erects its cathedrals and builds its churches; it is patriotic, benevolent, charitable. Its alms and offerings attract the vulgar, its austerities and penances convince the sceptical. It is at first tolerated; then approved; next obeyed! But now come the dread realities of the system, taxation, passive submission, excommunications, interdicts, crusades, the inquisition, destruction. Yes, Popery has well nigh destroyed every country in which it has been predominant. The liberties and national prosperity of a people cannot coexist with such a system.

Let then, Americans — Americans, who have never witnessed a Court of Inquisition, or an Auto-da-fe, on their virgin soil; Americans, whose national liberties are still fragrant with the blood of revolutionary forefathers; Americans, whose proud eminence in the civilized world, gives them more to lose than other nations; let Americans especially examine this subject well. And if, in such an examination, the following pages shall contribute but a mite to the discovery of the truth, the author will feel himself more than compensated for the labor they have cost him.  (Part 2 Pgs. 125&126)

Thus does the anomalous character of the Papacy prove it to be the antitype of “the little horn.” This power is unlike all others; is uncongenial with all others. It is a usurper, a supplanter. We can readily conceive, how a spiritual power, either associated with the state, or entirely independent of the state, may exist without discord or collision. If the church be entirely distinct from the political institutions of a people, there can of course be no disturbance, as there is no contact. And if a church be established by law, as the operations of the religious and the political systems are kept in distinct spheres, there may be but occasional evils growing out of such union. But for a government that claims its existence jure divino, that sets up a universal empire, that arrogates to itself supremacy in all civil, as well as ecclesiastical matters — for a government that considers itself infallible, and which requires absolute submission in all its subjects — for such a government to exist in the midst of other governments; in its very principles trampling upon their rights and privileges; wielding both a temporal and a spiritual sword; punishing offenders both in this world and the next — for such a government to exist in harmony with other governments, is impossible, absolutely impossible. The papal system can harmonize with no other, whether religious or political. To the religious world, it exhibits one supreme pontiff of Christendom, and requires for him universal obedience. To the political world, it presents one great monarch, whose throne is above every throne, and whose will is law throughout the globe. No the Papacy is a unit, and presents the front of positive hostility to every thing that is not consolidated in itself. It may not be able to carry out its principles and wishes, but this is its nature. It is “diverse from all other governments; it is the adversary of all other governments.
(Chapter 3, Pgs. 155&156)

Though Mr. Cassels was speaking of the history of the papacy up until his day, which he did not think could repeat itself in the age of the light of God’s word, the world has been living a repeat of that history to the present. In the continued healing of the deadly wound Babylon and the first beast she ride received.

As has always been the case with fallen humanity, all revivals or reformations are shortly thereafter followed by the slippery slope of backsliding future generations. This is a most obvious tendency demonstrated in the biblical history of the nation of Israel. The battles, struggles, and sacrifices of those preparing the way for freedom, liberty, justice, and the prosperity such affords, fades rapidly within the minds of following generations reaping the benefits. As it is with individuals, so it becomes with societies and nations. We are our own worst enemies. Success and ease in personal lives and societies, arrived at through the self discipline and sacrifice, gives way among those no longer facing the circumstance calling for such in the first place.

Nor do those living the social, economic, political, and or leisurely prosperity gained by others before them, keep or practice the self discipline or sacrifice required to establish such. We simply do not learn from history, or maintain the knowledge of that learned by those before us. We head right back down the same roads, many times with the very same peoples and or institutions, who brought us to the deplorable conditions needing revival and or reformation in the first place. As we see happening before our eyes today. This is not to mention or go into the details of exact plots and plans by said institutions and new ones, striving for these exact purposes. To regain the abusive power and wealth they lost during said revivals, reformations, and or violent reactionary revolutions. The ever increasing godless habits, social evils, backsliding religious, so called “sciences”, politics, philosophies, and what have you, are fostered and mustered together in battle array, against biblical light and high moral standards. Until the majority once again overwhelm the light of God’s word and teachings with the darkness they have chosen.

Therefore has God in the past, does He now increasingly, and will He in the future again, make the nations of this world drink the wine of Babylon. Because it is what we have chosen over and again throughout history, and are ever increasingly choosing again today. Denying the plain simple realities of God’s word and testimony, and seeking to establish their own vain imaginings in its place, we are left to delusion and madness. Which exponentially increases as they move forward in one denial after another, unto the madness we presently witness. The light of God’s word which is in fact reality, is put out of our minds and hearts, to be replaced with vain imaginings.

Until these vain imaginings are no longer concepts and or theories concerning faith, or politic, or so called “sciences” such as evolution, but rather the denial of what literally and physically exists right in front of our faces. We imagine there is no Creation by God, but only evolution. Therefore by extension as well, no right or wrong, save what we determine for ourselves to be such. No real value in human life save our own precious one of course, and those who agree with our own vain imaginings in particular. No need either to tolerate the views of others who are not of our particular brand of vain imaginings either. No coveting or stealing because all things are common and for the common good of all if you will. No fornication or adultery because there is no standard against such, which we all have natural tendencies toward as simple intellectually developed animals. No standards of any type against having sex with anyone or possibly even anything. Nothing wrong with homosexuality, transgenderism, and or whatever else one comes up with. No boys. No girls. No men. No woman. And on and on unto destruction we run. Drinking the wine of Babylon unto utter madness and folly. So be it according as God’s word has predicted, and God Himself wills toward those who will continually reject the light and truths of His word unto chosen darkness.

2Th 2:1 Now we beseech you, brethren, by the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ, and by our gathering together unto him, 2 That ye be not soon shaken in mind, or be troubled, neither by spirit, nor by word, nor by letter as from us, as that the day of Christ is at hand. 3 Let no man deceive you by any means: for that day shall not come, except there come a falling away first, and that man of sin be revealed, the son of perdition; 4 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, shewing himself that he is God. 5 Remember ye not, that, when I was yet with you, I told you these things? 6 And now ye know what withholdeth that he might be revealed in his time. 7 For the mystery of iniquity doth already work: only he who now letteth will let, until he be taken out of the way. 8 And then shall that Wicked be revealed, whom the Lord shall consume with the spirit of his mouth, and shall destroy with the brightness of his coming: 9 Even him, whose coming is after the working of Satan with all power and signs and lying wonders, 10 And with all deceivableness of unrighteousness in them that perish; because they received not the love of the truth, that they might be saved. 11 And for this cause God shall send them strong delusion, that they should believe a lie: 12 that they all might be damned who believed not the truth, but had pleasure in unrighteousness.

Rev 18:1 And after these things I saw another angel come down from heaven, having great power; and the earth was lightened with his glory. 2 And he cried mightily with a strong voice, saying, Babylon the great is fallen, is fallen, and is become the habitation of devils, and the hold of every foul spirit, and a cage of every unclean and hateful bird. 3 For all nations have drunk of the wine of the wrath of her fornication, and the kings of the earth have committed fornication with her, and the merchants of the earth are waxed rich through the abundance of her delicacies. 4 And I heard another voice from heaven, saying, Come out of her, my people, that ye be not partakers of her sins, and that ye receive not of her plagues. 5 For her sins have reached unto heaven, and God hath remembered her iniquities.

Jer 51:6 Flee out of the midst of Babylon, and deliver every man his soul: be not cut off in her iniquity; for this is the time of the LORD'S vengeance; he will render unto her a recompence. 7 Babylon hath been a golden cup in the LORD'S hand, that made all the earth drunken: the nations have drunken of her wine; therefore the nations are mad.

CHAPTER 10
BABYLON AND THE MERCHANTS OF THE EARTH
 

Rev 18:1 And after these things I saw another angel come down from heaven, having great power; and the earth was lightened with his glory. 2 And he cried mightily with a strong voice, saying, Babylon the great is fallen, is fallen, and is become the habitation of devils, and the hold of every foul spirit, and a cage of every unclean and hateful bird. 3 For all nations have drunk of the wine of the wrath of her fornication, and the kings of the earth have committed fornication with her, and the merchants of the earth are waxed rich through the abundance of her delicacies. 4 And I heard another voice from heaven, saying, Come out of her, my people, that ye be not partakers of her sins, and that ye receive not of her plagues. 5 For her sins have reached unto heaven, and God hath remembered her iniquities………………………
11 And the merchants of the earth shall weep and mourn over her; for no man buyeth their merchandise any more: 12The merchandise of gold, and silver, and precious stones, and of pearls, and fine linen, and purple, and silk, and scarlet, and all thyine wood, and all manner vessels of ivory, and all manner vessels of most precious wood, and of brass, and iron, and marble, 13 And cinnamon, and odours, and ointments, and frankincense, and wine, and oil, and fine flour, and wheat, and beasts, and sheep, and horses, and chariots, and slaves, and souls of men. 14 And the fruits that thy soul lusted after are departed from thee, and all things which were dainty and goodly are departed from thee, and thou shalt find them no more at all. 15 The merchants of these things, which were made rich by her, shall stand afar off for the fear of her torment, weeping and wailing, 16 And saying, Alas, alas, that great city, that was clothed in fine linen, and purple, and scarlet, and decked with gold, and precious stones, and pearls! 17 For in one hour so great riches is come to nought. And every shipmaster, and all the company in ships, and sailors, and as many as trade by sea, stood afar off, 18 And cried when they saw the smoke of her burning, saying, What city is like unto this great city! 19 And they cast dust on their heads, and cried, weeping and wailing, saying, Alas, alas, that great city, wherein were made rich all that had ships in the sea by reason of her costliness! for in one hour is she made desolate……………………..
23 And the light of a candle shall shine no more at all in thee; and the voice of the bridegroom and of the bride shall be heard no more at all in thee: for thy merchants were the great men of the earth; for by thy sorceries were all nations deceived.


As is apparent from the above testimony regarding Babylon, the merchants of the earth play a crucial role in the development, establishment, and maintenance of the global beast which Babylon is destined to ride. An examination therefore of the papacies  relations with them, will only add evidence to her identification as Babylon. The following list of article headlines are simply by way of establishing the papacies and therefore Babylon’s relations with the merchants of this earth, concerning very recent history only. They represent in fact, a very small fraction of the information out there at the finger tips of all, truly desiring to know and understand the identifying marks of Babylon the great.

Again, the above list does not even scratch the surface of the papacies involvement with an ever increasing number of CEO’s and other oligarchs the world over. Which is not even to mention the papacies own immense wealth, properties, businesses, franchises, investment and ownership of hospitals and other medicine related industries and distributers, investment and ownership of mainstream media outlets, social media outlets, movies and entertainment, connections with labor and trade unions, grass roots organizations the world over, secret societies the world over as well, and influential connections with just about everyone and anyone else they can possibly influence with their stated agendas.

What is their stated agenda, but the unification of all humanity unto global government and economy, directed by the underlying principles of the common good. A common good which she herself defines and demands others finance and implement for her. As she always has, calling upon the political leaders of the world to do her bidding. Not to mention, begin punishing those who will not submit to her designs and demands. Appealing to the leaders themselves over and above the peoples they are supposed to be representing, to submit to her designs with or without the peoples consent.

This is nothing less than the reestablishment of the dark ages all over again. The papacy back in bed with her political lovers. Living and walking upon the backs of the people, they are pretending to be helping or saving with their self professed superior knowledge and know how. The very type of government the Church of Christ and even the world overwhelmingly rejected and revolted against just a few centuries ago. Self proclaimed elitist religious, political, and so called scientific leaders. Lording themselves over the rest of the world. No different than the kings, queens, and supposed royalty of the past. Who were also in bed with the papacy. Claiming false rights of leadership as well by birth or declaration of silly men in dresses as it were, and wearing silly hats, pronouncing that God established a new priesthood through them.

The founders of our nation understood this folly well. By experiential knowledge and observation, and properly addressed it. Both in writing and establishment of government for and by the people to prevent its rising again. Which knowledge and government the papacy and her elitist minded lovers have been warring against ever since. The following from one of our founders, addresses the same.

Excerpt from
John Adams - A Dissertation on the Canon and Feudal Law (On man's standing in the order of creation)

Quote
Since the promulgation of Christianity, the two greatest systems of tyranny that have sprung from this original, are the canon and the feudal law. The desire of dominion, that great principle by which we have attempted to account for so much good and so much evil, is, when properly restrained, a very useful and noble movement in the human mind. But when such restraints are taken off, it becomes an encroaching, grasping, restless, and ungovernable power. Numberless have been the systems of iniquity contrived by the great for the gratification of this passion in themselves; but in none of them were they ever more successful than in the invention and establishment of the canon and the feudal law.

By the former of these, the most refined, sublime, extensive, and astonishing constitution of policy that ever was conceived by the mind of man was framed by the Romish clergy for the aggrandisement of their own order. All the epithets I have here given to the Romish policy are just, and will be allowed to be so when it is considered, that they even persuaded mankind to believe, faithfully and undoubtingly, that God Almighty had entrusted them with the keys of heaven, whose gates they might open and close at pleasure; with a power of dispensation over all the rules and obligations of morality; with authority to license all sorts of sins and crimes; with a power of deposing princes and absolving subjects from allegiance; with a power of procuring or withholding the rain of heaven and the beams of the sun; with the management of earthquakes, pestilence, and famine; nay, with the mysterious, awful, incomprehensible power of creating out of bread and wine the flesh and blood of God himself. All these opinions they were enabled to spread and rivet among the people by reducing their minds to a state of sordid ignorance and staring timidity, and by infusing into them a religious horror of letters and knowledge. Thus was human nature chained fast for ages in a cruel, shameful, and deplorable servitude to him, and his subordinate tyrants, who, it was foretold, would exalt himself above all that was called God, and that was worshipped.

In the latter we find another system, similar in many respects to the former;1 which, although it was originally formed, perhaps, for the necessary defence of a barbarous people against the inroads and invasions of her neighboring nations, yet for the same purposes of tyranny, cruelty, and lust, which had dictated the canon law, it was soon adopted by almost all the princes of Europe, and wrought into the constitutions of their government. It was originally a code of laws for a vast army in a perpetual encampment. The general was invested with the sovereign propriety of all the lands within the territory. Of him, as his servants and vassals, the first rank of his great officers held the lands; and in the same manner the other subordinate officers held of them; and all ranks and degrees held their lands by a variety of duties and services, all tending to bind the chains the faster on every order of mankind. In this manner the common people were held together in herds and clans in a state of servile dependence on their lords, bound, even by the tenure of their lands, to follow them, whenever they commanded, to their wars, and in a state of total ignorance of every thing divine and human, excepting the use of arms and the culture of their lands.

1 Rob. Hist. ch. v. pp. 178-9, &c.
But another event still more calamitous to human liberty, was a wicked confederacy between the two systems of tyranny above described. It seems to have been even stipulated between them, that the temporal grandees should contribute every thing in their power to maintain the ascendency of the priesthood, and that the spiritual grandees in their turn, should employ their ascendency over the consciences of the people, in impressing on their minds a blind, implicit obedience to civil magistracy. Thus, as long as this confederacy lasted, and the people were held in ignorance, liberty, and with her, knowledge and virtue too, seem to have deserted the earth, and one age of darkness succeeded another, till God in his benign providence raised up the champions who began and conducted the Reformation. From the time of the Reformation to the first settlement of America, knowledge gradually spread in Europe, but especially in England; and in proportion as that increased and spread among the people, ecclesiastical and civil tyranny, which I use as synonymous expressions for the canon and feudal laws, seem to have lost their strength and weight. The people grew more and more sensible of the wrong that was done them by these systems, more and more impatient under it, and determined at all hazards to rid themselves of it; till at last, under the execrable race of the Stuarts, the struggle between the people and the confederacy aforesaid of temporal and spiritual tyranny, became formidable, violent, and bloody.

It was this great struggle that peopled America. It was not religion alone, as is commonly supposed; but it was a love of universal liberty, and a hatred, a dread, a horror, of the infernal confederacy before described, that projected, conducted, and accomplished the settlement of America.

It was a resolution formed by a sensible people, -- I mean the Puritans, -- almost in despair. They had become intelligent in general, and many of them learned. For this fact, I have the testimony of Archbishop King himself, who observed of that people, that they were more intelligent and better read than even the members of the church, whom he censures warmly for that reason. This people had been so vexed and tortured by the powers of those days, for no other crime than their knowledge and their freedom of inquiry and examination, and they had so much reason to despair of deliverance from those miseries on that side the ocean, that they at last resolved to fly to the wilderness for refuge from the temporal and spiritual principalities and powers, and plagues and scourges of their native country.

After their arrival here, they began their settlement, and formed their plan, both of ecclesiastical and civil government, in direct opposition to the canon and the feudal systems. The leading men among them, both of the clergy and the laity, were men of sense and learning. To many of them the historians, orators, poets, and philosophers of Greece and Rome were quite familiar; and some of them have left libraries that are still in being, consisting chiefly of volumes in which the wisdom of the most enlightened ages and nations is deposited, -- written, however, in languages which their great-grandsons, though educated in European universities, can scarcely read.2

2 “I always consider the settlement of America with reverence and wonder, as the opening of a grand scene and design in Providence for the illumination of the ignorant, and the emancipation of the slavish part of mankind all over the earth.”

In order for Babylon the Great to rise again sitting upon the back of governments, she had to overcome the above people and form of government erected exactly to prevent this very thing. The removal of the scriptures of course, which she had historically kept out of the hands of the people when she reigned, was an important step concerning this task. As they clearly revealed her faults and false claims to authority. As soon therefore, as the number of her adherents were large enough to effectively complain about the Holy Scriptures being part of our public education, she effected the same. Successfully having them removed from the classrooms, thereby removing this menace to the reestablishment of her usurping power once again.

At the same time and thereafter, she continued her policies of removing as much negative history regarding her usurped powers of the past and the abuse suffered by her victims, from public sight as well. This was also addressed in our educational systems, and removed by demand of an ever increasing population of her adherents through continued mass migrations of them into our country. A population who increasingly denied such histories as bigotry against their religion and persons. Migrations which continue by the way to this very day. With approval, promotion, financing, and facilitation by the papacy in her never ending quest for supposed equity. Which equity, only ends in the two class society which she herself prefers and endlessly works to establish. Her and her chosen elitist lovers, and the mass of poor peasantry which are completely dependent upon them.

Having at this point in time for the most part, removed her past and even present evils from public sight. She has been actively revising history according to her own vision and outcome for many years now. Accomplishing this task through many different avenues. Revising history books, reference materials, and education systems of course along the way. Also using the power of media and Hollywood as it were, to paint a very different picture of the history of our nation in the minds of our increasingly ignorant population. Who generally care nothing for studying actual history, searching for truth along the way. Leaving themselves therefore easily influenced and brainwashed as it were, through entertaining depictions of history and mainstream media revisionist historical accounts. Why read a book and study, when you can press a button and be entertained while being spoon fed what was, what is for you now, and where you are going. Just sit back, watch, listen, believe, and do, as you are instructed. So be it. 

The intentional dumbing down of our society, is no secret at this point in time. And the above observations are directly connected to this phenomenon. We have been and continue to be fitted to be ruled over by Babylon the Great and her elitist lovers once again. Having first given up the powerful influence of the word of God against such societal ills, the downward spiral only increases over time. As such conditions were favorable to the rise of Babylon upon the back of previous governments throughout history, so they are favorable once again today. So be it according as God’s word has foretold. The following quote sums up quite well, where the world under the papal leadership has gone in the past, and where therefore we are rapidly headed today.

Quote
But the success of the Papacy, when closely examined, is not so surprising as it looks. It cannot be justly pronounced legitimate, or fairly won. Rome has ever been swimming with the tide. The evils and passions of society, which a true benefactress would have made it her business to cure -at least, to alleviate -Rome has studied rather to foster into strength, that she might be borne to power on the foul current which she herself had created. Amid battles, bloodshed, and confusion, has her path lain. The edicts of subservient Councils, the forgeries of hireling priests, the arms of craven monarchs, and the thunderbolts of excommunication have never been wanting to open her path. Exploits won by weapons of this sort are what her historians delight to chronicle. These are the victories that constitute her glory! And then, there remains yet another and great deduction from the apparent grandeur of her success, in that, after all, it is the success of only a few -a caste -the clergy. For although, during her early career, the Roman Church rendered certain important services to society -of which it will delight us to make mention in fitting place when she grew to maturity, and was able to develop her real genius, it was felt and acknowledged by all that her principles implied the ruin of all interests save her own, and that there was room in the world for none but herself. If her march, as  shown in history down to the sixteenth century, is ever onwards, it is not less true that behind, on her path, lie the wrecks of nations, and the ashes of literature, of liberty, and of civilization.

CHAPTER 11
BABYLON THE DESTROYING MOUNTAIN

Jer 51:24 And I will render unto Babylon and to all the inhabitants of Chaldea all their evil that they have done in Zion in your sight, saith the LORD. 25 Behold, I am against thee, O destroying mountain, saith the LORD, which destroyest all the earth: and I will stretch out mine hand upon thee, and roll thee down from the rocks, and will make thee a burnt mountain.

While the above prophecy is certainly in relation to Babylon of old or the old covenant if you will, it just as certainly reaches down to the end of time and spiritual or new covenant Babylon as well. As the prophecy includes Babylon’s effect as a destroying mountain upon all the earth. Which the book of Revelation chapters seventeen and eighteen in particular, expound upon in greater detail for this new covenant era. Revealing the ruin of the entire world as its kings and nations become increasingly involved and influenced by “the wine of the wrath of her fornication”(Rev 18:3), once again.

Babylon of old herself is the first beast, mountain, or king of the seven headed beast which spiritual Babylon of the new covenant rides upon.

Rev 17:1 And there came one of the seven angels which had the seven vials, and talked with me, saying unto me, Come hither; I will shew unto thee the judgment of the great whore that sitteth upon many waters: 2 With whom the kings of the earth have committed fornication, and the inhabitants of the earth have been made drunk with the wine of her fornication. 3 So he carried me away in the spirit into the wilderness: and I saw a woman sit upon a scarlet coloured beast, full of names of blasphemy, having seven heads and ten horns. 4 And the woman was arrayed in purple and scarlet colour, and decked with gold and precious stones and pearls, having a golden cup in her hand full of abominations and filthiness of her fornication: 5 And upon her forehead was a name written, MYSTERY, BABYLON THE GREAT, THE MOTHER OF HARLOTS AND ABOMINATIONS OF THE EARTH.

Who is this seven headed beast upon which Babylon sits, but the first beast of Revelation thirteen and this new covenant era. Which beast is connected to the four beasts of old covenant prophecy itself, described in the book of Daniel, having different parts from them all. Going back to the original Babylon of old in consecutive order from the time the prophecy is given.

Rev 13:1 And I stood upon the sand of the sea, and saw a beast rise up out of the sea, having seven heads and ten horns, and upon his horns ten crowns, and upon his heads the name of blasphemy. 2 And the beast which I saw was like unto a leopard, and his feet were as the feet of a bear, and his mouth as the mouth of a lion: and the dragon gave him his power, and his seat, and great authority.

The ten horns being from the fourth and final beast of Daniel 7:7. The beast itself being like a leopard, as the third beast of Daniel 7:6 was also. Having the feet of a bear, which the second beast described in Daniel 7:5 was. And finally having the mouth of a lion which the first beast of Daniel 7:4 was. Which beast was none other than Babylon of old itself. The first beast, mountain, or king of the prophecy of Revelation 17 which we are examining presently in relation to Babylon the Great of the new covenant era. The details of the prophecies themselves making the connections between all seven of these beasts, kings, and or mountains.

And where does this first beast of Revelation 13 which connects these old covenant beasts of prophecy with the new covenant beasts of the book of Revelation, get its power, seat, and authority from, according to verse two? It gets it from the dragon himself. And who is the dragon, but the devil himself, that old serpent who deceives the entire world.

Rev 12:7 And there was war in heaven: Michael and his angels fought against the dragon; and the dragon fought and his angels, 8 And prevailed not; neither was their place found any more in heaven. 9 And the great dragon was cast out, that old serpent, called the Devil, and Satan, which deceiveth the whole world: he was cast out into the earth, and his angels were cast out with him. 10 And I heard a loud voice saying in heaven, Now is come salvation, and strength, and the kingdom of our God, and the power of his Christ: for the accuser of our brethren is cast down, which accused them before our God day and night. 11 And they overcame him by the blood of the Lamb, and by the word of their testimony; and they loved not their lives unto the death. 12 Therefore rejoice, ye heavens, and ye that dwell in them. Woe to the inhabiters of the earth and of the sea! for the devil is come down unto you, having great wrath, because he knoweth that he hath but a short time. 13 And when the dragon saw that he was cast unto the earth, he persecuted the woman which brought forth the man child.

And how many heads does the dragon who deceives the entire world have, but seven. Which are in fact the seven heads of the beast to whom he gives his power, seat, and authority.

Rev 12:1 And there appeared a great wonder in heaven; a woman clothed with the sun, and the moon under her feet, and upon her head a crown of twelve stars: 22 And she being with child cried, travailing in birth, and pained to be delivered. 23 And there appeared another wonder in heaven; and behold a great red dragon, having seven heads and ten horns, and seven crowns upon his heads. 24 And his tail drew the third part of the stars of heaven, and did cast them to the earth: and the dragon stood before the woman which was ready to be delivered, for to devour her child as soon as it was born.

And what are the seven heads of the dragon, but the seven heads of the beast to whom he gives his power, seat, and authority. The seven consecutive kings, mountains, or beasts of biblical prophecy which the devil controls and raises up in defiance of the God of heaven. Which also persecute those in this world who are of the kingdom of God.

We know from the book of Daniel that these beasts are kings or kingdoms through which Satan defies God’s kingdom and wars with the people of God’s kingdom on this earth (Dan 7:17&23). And what are the mountains, or how do we know the mountains are these same beasts or kingdoms as well? We know from the opening verse of this chapter (Jer 51:24&25), that God referred to Babylon as a destroying mountain. We also know from the following verses that Satan was kicked out of the “mountain” or kingdom of God.

Eze 28:13 Thou hast been in Eden the garden of God; every precious stone was thy covering, the sardius, topaz, and the diamond, the beryl, the onyx, and the jasper, the sapphire, the emerald, and the carbuncle, and gold: the workmanship of thy tabrets and of thy pipes was prepared in thee in the day that thou wast created. 14Thou art the anointed cherub that covereth; and I have set thee so: thou wast upon the holy mountain of God; thou hast walked up and down in the midst of the stones of fire. 15 Thou wast perfect in thy ways from the day that thou wast created, till iniquity was found in thee. 16 By the multitude of thy merchandise they have filled the midst of thee with violence, and thou hast sinned: therefore I will cast thee as profane out of the mountain of God: and I will destroy thee, O covering cherub, from the midst of the stones of fire. 17 Thine heart was lifted up because of thy beauty, thou hast corrupted thy wisdom by reason of thy brightness: I will cast thee to the ground, I will lay thee before kings, that they may behold thee. 18 Thou hast defiled thy sanctuaries by the multitude of thine iniquities, by the iniquity of thy traffick; therefore will I bring forth a fire from the midst of thee, it shall devour thee, and I will bring thee to ashes upon the earth in the sight of all them that behold thee. 19 All they that know thee among the people shall be astonished at thee: thou shalt be a terror, and never shalt thou be any more.

Satan was not just of the kingdom of God, but was upon the holy mountain of God, that is in God’s very presence and among the leadership of His kingdom. God cast him out of His holy mountain and or kingdom as profane. The seven mountains, beasts, kings or kingdoms, of the prophecies of the books of Daniel and the Revelation are the seven heads of the dragon, or satan. They are the seven beasts of biblical prophecy or seven headed beast of biblical prophecy, and the seven hills or mountains upon which mystical Babylon sits. They are the devil’s counterfeit and or rival mountains or kingdoms to God’s in this world. Thus does BABYLON THE GREAT sit upon the seven hills or mountains, which are the seat of Satan’s power and authority in rebellion against God in this world. The Devil gives these beasts their power, seat, and authority. And BABYLON THE GREAT sits upon these mountains as well. Deriving her power and authority from him as well.

Rev 13:1 And I stood upon the sand of the sea, and saw a beast rise up out of the sea, having seven heads and ten horns, and upon his horns ten crowns, and upon his heads the name of blasphemy. 2 And the beast which I saw was like unto a leopard, and his feet were as the feet of a bear, and his mouth as the mouth of a lion: and the dragon gave him his power, and his seat, and great authority.

Rev 17:5 And upon her forehead was a name written, MYSTERY, BABYLON THE GREAT, THE MOTHER OF HARLOTS AND ABOMINATIONS OF THE EARTH. 6 And I saw the woman drunken with the blood of the saints, and with the blood of the martyrs of Jesus: and when I saw her, I wondered with great admiration. 7 And the angel said unto me, Wherefore didst thou marvel? I will tell thee the mystery of the woman, and of the beast that carrieth her, which hath the seven heads and ten horns. 8 The beast that thou sawest was, and is not; and shall ascend out of the bottomless pit, and go into perdition: and they that dwell on the earth shall wonder, whose names were not written in the book of life from the foundation of the world, when they behold the beast that was, and is not, and yet is. 9 And here is the mind which hath wisdom. The seven heads are seven mountains, on which the woman sitteth. 10  And there are seven kings: five are fallen, and one is, and the other is not yet come; and when he cometh, he must continue a short space.


These mountains are not the hills upon which literal Rome of this world sits as many have supposed in the past. They are rather the mountains, heads, and or kingdoms of the evil one raised in defiance of the living God. They are the seat of the evil one’s authority, and the religious and political leaders which sit upon those seats are the leaders of Satan’s counterfeit mountains, kingdoms, or heads. They compose the heads of the beasts, and lead the world and their constituents unto destruction. Destruction by fire. Therefore will the evil one and his mountains be burned.

Rev 20:9 And they went up on the breadth of the earth, and compassed the camp of the saints about, and the beloved city: and fire came down from God out of heaven, and devoured them. 10 And the devil that deceived them was cast into the lake of fire and brimstone, where the beast and the false prophet are, and shall be tormented day and night for ever and ever.

Jer 51:24 And I will render unto Babylon and to all the inhabitants of Chaldea all their evil that they have done in Zion in your sight, saith the LORD. 25 Behold, I am against thee, O destroying mountain, saith the LORD, which destroyest all the earth: and I will stretch out mine hand upon thee, and roll thee down from the rocks, and will make thee a burnt mountain.


Not only do the satanic practices and policies of Babylon and the beasts she rides bring suffering, misery, woe, and destruction upon humanity during their occupation, but they end in complete destruction by fire. We are now observing in this nation and world the misery and woe following a turning away from the power and influence of God’s word, unto the power and influence of BABYLON THE GREAT, and one of the beasts she rides. All of which is leading to the final destruction of all powers and peoples existing in defiance of God, by fire.

Denying, refusing, and or being ignorant of the lessons learned from history concerning her abusive and destructive leadership in the past, the world is ever increasingly placing themselves under the tyrannical leadership and control of BABYLON THE GREAT once again. The dark ages of the past spawned by the Church of Rome, are swiftly approaching and encroaching again. Her illicit and adulterous relations with the rich and powerful of the earth will and are producing this same effect upon humanity again, unto final destruction. Babylon is without question, a destroying mountain.

God used Babylon of old as a tool and destroying weapon of judgement upon His repeatedly wayward people and surrounding nations during the old covenant era (Jer 21&25). Eventually destroying Babylon as well in judgment, but only after He had revealed Himself to the Babylonians as well. Converting their king through the remnant of Israel who survived within his kingdom after he conquered them in judgment from God. Judgment came upon them when knowing such they used the instruments from Israel’s temple and worship of the true God, to worship their false God’s. More about this later.

In any case, the spiritual or temporal policies and practice of Babylonian rule, which is itself satanic rule, are ruin and desolation. This is “the wine of the wrath of her fornication”, which all the nations of this earth will and are ever increasingly drinking as the end approaches. The misery and woe her practice and policies bring upon humanity are in fact judgment from God upon us, for turning from His law and proved righteous leadership, unto the satanically inspired leadership she enthrones herself upon. The end of which is destruction even upon her own self and all who submit to her. She is truly a destroying mountain, in contrast to God’s holy mountain and leadership which we will examine in the next chapter.

While there are other nations which stand forth in scripture with enduring lessons of spiritual nature and application concerning the results of abandoning God’s rule in favor of humanities, Babylon holds the place of prominence above them all. She was the power used by God in judgment to end the nation and religion of His own design and purpose by way of revelation in this world, due to apostasy. The lessons to be learned since that time and unto future generations in these judgments and restorations of the past, are crucial to properly understanding the conflicts and resolutions God Himself has determined until the end. Therefore has BABYLON THE GREAT, been brought forth again in a spiritual manner for these new covenant era lessons unto the end.

God Himself began these prophecies concerning Babylon and Israel through dreams he gave to Nebuchadnezzar, and interpretation and visions he gave to the Hebrew captives Daniel and his companions, concerning the same unto the end. The books of Daniel and the Revelation are God’s instruments of prophetic instruction for his people unto the end. With the help and aid of other scripture as well of course, by way of historical detail, and symbolic interpretation. Babylon is the head of the four metals of the image of Nebuchadnezzars dream in chapter two, and the first beast of the four revealed in chapter seven. These are the first four of the seven kingdoms, beasts, or heads of biblical prophecy revealed in Revelation chapter seventeen. The prophetic kingdoms, beasts, or mountains of the old covenant era if you will.

These are followed in the new covenant by the evil one’s counterfeit kingdoms of this era. In his attempt to copy and supplant God’s universal spiritual kingdom and church on earth, established in and by Christ Jesus our Lord. All these new covenant counterfeit kingdoms, beasts, or mountains, are directly connected to spiritual Babylon of the new covenant era. The Devil’s counterfeit’s of Christ’s spiritual kingdom until He returns again to set up His literal kingdom forever. Thus does and is the devil using his queen as it were, to set up an opposing kingdom of unified humanity in defiance of the living God. We will end this chapter by quoting from the book of Daniel the second chapter, where it all began, before examining the mountain of God in the next chapter.

Dan 2:26 The king answered and said to Daniel, whose name was Belteshazzar, Art thou able to make known unto me the dream which I have seen, and the interpretation thereof? 27 Daniel answered in the presence of the king, and said, The secret which the king hath demanded cannot the wise men, the astrologers, the magicians, the soothsayers, shew unto the king; 28 But there is a God in heaven that revealeth secrets, and maketh known to the king Nebuchadnezzar what shall be in the latter days. Thy dream, and the visions of thy head upon thy bed, are these; 29 As for thee, O king, thy thoughts came into thy mind upon thy bed, what should come to pass hereafter: and he that revealeth secrets maketh known to thee what shall come to pass. 30 But as for me, this secret is not revealed to me for any wisdom that I have more than any living, but for their sakes that shall make known the interpretation to the king, and that thou mightest know the thoughts of thy heart 31 Thou, O king, sawest, and behold a great image. This great image, whose brightness was excellent, stood before thee; and the form thereof was terrible. 32 This image's head was of fine gold, his breast and his arms of silver, his belly and his thighs of brass, 33 His legs of iron, his feet part of iron and part of clay. 34 Thou sawest till that a stone was cut out without hands, which smote the image upon his feet that were of iron and clay, and brake them to pieces. 35 Then was the iron, the clay, the brass, the silver, and the gold, broken to pieces together, and became like the chaff of the summer threshingfloors; and the wind carried them away, that no place was found for them: and the stone that smote the image became a great mountain, and filled the whole earth. 36 This is the dream; and we will tell the interpretation thereof before the king. 37 Thou, O king, art a king of kings: for the God of heaven hath given thee a kingdom, power, and strength, and glory. 38 And wheresoever the children of men dwell, the beasts of the field and the fowls of the heaven hath he given into thine hand, and hath made thee ruler over them all. Thou art this head of gold. 39 And after thee shall arise another kingdom inferior to thee, and another third kingdom of brass, which shall bear rule over all the earth. 40 And the fourth kingdom shall be strong as iron: forasmuch as iron breaketh in pieces and subdueth all things: and as iron that breaketh all these, shall it break in pieces and bruise. 41 And whereas thou sawest the feet and toes, part of potters' clay, and part of iron, the kingdom shall be divided; but there shall be in it of the strength of the iron, forasmuch as thou sawest the iron mixed with miry clay. 42 And as the toes of the feet were part of iron, and part of clay, so the kingdom shall be partly strong, and partly broken. 43 And whereas thou sawest iron mixed with miry clay, they shall mingle themselves with the seed of men: but they shall not cleave one to another, even as iron is not mixed with clay. 44 And in the days of these kings shall the God of heaven set up a kingdom, which shall never be destroyed: and the kingdom shall not be left to other people, but it shall break in pieces and consume all these kingdoms, and it shall stand for ever. 45 Forasmuch as thou sawest that the stone was cut out of the mountain without hands, and that it brake in pieces the iron, the brass, the clay, the silver, and the gold; the great God hath made known to the king what shall come to pass hereafter: and the dream is certain, and the interpretation thereof sure.

CHAPTER 12
GOD’S HOLY MOUNTAIN

Isa 11:1 And there shall come forth a rod out of the stem of Jesse, and a Branch shall grow out of his roots: 2 And the spirit of the LORD shall rest upon him, the spirit of wisdom and understanding, the spirit of counsel and might, the spirit of knowledge and of the fear of the LORD; 3 And shall make him of quick understanding in the fear of the LORD: and he shall not judge after the sight of his eyes, neither reprove after the hearing of his ears: 4 But with righteousness shall he judge the poor, and reprove with equity for the meek of the earth: and he shall smite the earth with the rod of his mouth, and with the breath of his lips shall he slay the wicked. 5 And righteousness shall be the girdle of his loins, and faithfulness the girdle of his reins. 6 The wolf also shall dwell with the lamb, and the leopard shall lie down with the kid; and the calf and the young lion and the fatling together; and a little child shall lead them. 7 And the cow and the bear shall feed; their young ones shall lie down together: and the lion shall eat straw like the ox. 8 And the sucking child shall play on the hole of the asp, and the weaned child shall put his hand on the cockatrice' den. 9 They shall not hurt nor destroy in all my holy mountain: for the earth shall be full of the knowledge of the LORD, as the waters cover the sea.

One cannot help but immediately notice, the differences between the holy mountain and or kingdom of God, and the counterfeit mountains and kingdoms of the evil one. Babylon and the mountains or beasts after her were destroying mountains, but God’s holy mountain is where none shall hurt or destroy. The Lord’s kingdom being established upon wisdom, understanding, knowledge, and righteousness in the fear of the Lord. While Babylon’s kingdoms are built upon the inebriation of her wine unto fornication, adultery, whoredoms, and self exaltation of herself first, and then the individual in defiance of the living God. These are the defining traits and or fruits of the opposing kingdoms of God and the evil one. They are also therefore the defining traits, fruits, and or effects of the churches and or governments most highly influenced by either or.

Mat 17:15 Beware of false prophets, which come to you in sheep's clothing, but inwardly they are ravening wolves. 16 Ye shall know them by their fruits. Do men gather grapes of thorns, or figs of thistles? 17 Even so every good tree bringeth forth good fruit; but a corrupt tree bringeth forth evil fruit. 18 A good tree cannot bring forth evil fruit, neither can a corrupt tree bring forth good fruit. 19 Every tree that bringeth not forth good fruit is hewn down, and cast into the fire. 20 Wherefore by their fruits ye shall know them.

As we shall examine in later chapters, history reveals the opposing temporal fruits of the differing spiritual teachings and practices of the church of Christ and the church of Babylon and her daughters. History itself has played out and demonstrated the truth of Christ’s words quoted above in churches and nations throughout history. It is also being played out again right now before our very eyes, in this nation and on a global scale for the very last time. So be it, as God’s word has predicted and determined.

Isa 56:1 Thus saith the LORD, Keep ye judgment, and do justice: for my salvation is near to come, and my righteousness to be revealed. 2 Blessed is the man that doeth this, and the son of man that layeth hold on it; that keepeth the sabbath from polluting it, and keepeth his hand from doing any evil. 3 Neither let the son of the stranger, that hath joined himself to the LORD, speak, saying, The LORD hath utterly separated me from his people: neither let the eunuch say, Behold, I am a dry tree. 4 For thus saith the LORD unto the eunuchs that keep my sabbaths, and choose the things that please me, and take hold of my covenant; 5 Even unto them will I give in mine house and within my walls a place and a name better than of sons and of daughters: I will give them an everlasting name, that shall not be cut off. 6 Also the sons of the stranger, that join themselves to the LORD, to serve him, and to love the name of the LORD, to be his servants, every one that keepeth the sabbath from polluting it, and taketh hold of my covenant; 7 Even them will I bring to my holy mountain, and make them joyful in my house of prayer: their burnt offerings and their sacrifices shall be accepted upon mine altar; for mine house shall be called an house of prayer for all people. 8 The Lord GOD which gathereth the outcasts of Israel saith, Yet will I gather others to him, beside those that are gathered unto him.

The above prophecy reaches unto the establishment of God’s holy mountain on earth, and even until it fills all the earth. It includes the strangers who are not of Israel who join themselves to the Lord. All those who enter into and take hold of God’s covenant. It includes everyone who will keep God’s sabbath, and from polluting it. The keeping of God’s sabbath is directly connected to taking hold of His covenant, even among the strangers or gentiles. The fourth commandment is a basic fundamental and foundational  building stone of saving faith in God. It establishes God as the Creator, Sustainer, Rewarder, and Savior of all who place their faith in Him. Therefore does the chapter on faith in the book of Hebrews begin with the same truth that the fourth commandment declares.

Heb 11:1 Now faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen. 2 For by it the elders obtained a good report. 3 Through faith we understand that the worlds were framed by the word of God, so that things which are seen were not made of things which do appear………………..
6 But without faith it is impossible to please him: for he that cometh to God must believe that he is, and that he is a rewarder of them that diligently seek him.

Exo 20:8 Remember the sabbath day, to keep it holy. 9 Six days shalt thou labour, and do all thy work: 10 But the seventh day is the sabbath of the LORD thy God: in it thou shalt not do any work, thou, nor thy son, nor thy daughter, thy manservant, nor thy maidservant, nor thy cattle, nor thy stranger that is within thy gates: 11 For in six days the LORD made heaven and earth, the sea, and all that in them is, and rested the seventh day: wherefore the LORD blessed the sabbath day, and hallowed it.


And when was God’s holy mountain established in the earth, and by whom? But by our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ, during the days of the fourth metal mixed with miry clay of the prophetic image of the book of Daniel chapter 2, or the fourth beast of  biblical prophecy of Daniel chapter 7. Which was the Roman empire. Jesus Christ, the stone which the builders rejected and the Son of man and God. The corner stone of God’s temple and church, which the builders rejected (Mt. 21:42, Eph. 2:11-22). The stone which will destroy and replace all other kingdoms, mountains, or beasts of biblical prophecy. The God and Savior of all humanity who will put their trust in Him.

Dan 2:34 Thou sawest till that a stone was cut out without hands, which smote the image upon his feet that were of iron and clay, and brake them to pieces.  35 Then was the iron, the clay, the brass, the silver, and the gold, broken to pieces together, and became like the chaff of the summer threshingfloors; and the wind carried them away, that no place was found for them: and the stone that smote the image became a great mountain, and filled the whole earth.

Dan 7:13 I saw in the night visions, and, behold, one like the Son of man came with the clouds of heaven, and came to the Ancient of days, and they brought him near before him. 14 And there was given him dominion, and glory, and a kingdom, that all people, nations, and languages, should serve him: his dominion is an everlasting dominion, which shall not pass away, and his kingdom that which shall not be destroyed.


All who place their faith and hope in Jesus Christ the Son of God and man, picking up their crosses and following Him, shall be brought to the holy mountain of God. And what is the picking up of our crosses but the death of self in Christ Jesus our Lord, by the sacrifice of our own wills and sinful desires, in conformity to the will of God. And What is the will of God concerning His own, as expressed all throughout the scriptures, but that we keep the Commandments of God. As our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ did, and as he admonished His followers to do as well. Including the fourth and most basic fundamental Commandment of God regarding authentic faith. Declaring who He is, and thereby His right to be King of kings and Lord of lords, to rightfully be obeyed above all others. Having proved above all others, His benevolent, pure, righteous, and holy leadership in and through our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. Whose kingdom shall never be destroyed, though all the world set itself against it.

His own will acknowledge and keep His sabbath in this world and the next. They have and will honor the day declaring Him Lord of all creation, to whom alone rightful obedience is required, even in this world of sin and woe. They will be resurrected or preserved unto His creation of the new heavens and earth, as rightful citizens of the same. Citizens of God’s everlasting kingdom, where they will honor His sabbath declaring and celebrating His creation and salvation. Where none will hurt or destroy.

Isa 66:22 For as the new heavens and the new earth, which I will make, shall remain before me, saith the LORD, so shall your seed and your name remain. 23 And it shall come to pass, that from one new moon to another, and from one sabbath to another, shall all flesh come to worship before me, saith the LORD. 24 And they shall go forth, and look upon the carcases of the men that have transgressed against me: for their worm shall not die, neither shall their fire be quenched; and they shall be an abhorring unto all flesh.

Amen.

Isa 65:17 For, behold, I create new heavens and a new earth: and the former shall not be remembered, nor come into mind. 18 But be ye glad and rejoice for ever in that which I create: for, behold, I create Jerusalem a rejoicing, and her people a joy. 19 And I will rejoice in Jerusalem, and joy in my people: and the voice of weeping shall be no more heard in her, nor the voice of crying. 20 There shall be no more thence an infant of days, nor an old man that hath not filled his days: for the child shall die an hundred years old; but the sinner being an hundred years old shall be accursed. 21 And they shall build houses, and inhabit them; and they shall plant vineyards, and eat the fruit of them. 22 They shall not build, and another inhabit; they shall not plant, and another eat: for as the days of a tree are the days of my people, and mine elect shall long enjoy the work of their hands. 23 They shall not labour in vain, nor bring forth for trouble; for they are the seed of the blessed of the LORD, and their offspring with them. 24 And it shall come to pass, that before they call, I will answer; and while they are yet speaking, I will hear. 25 The wolf and the lamb shall feed together, and the lion shall eat straw like the bullock: and dust shall be the serpent's meat. They shall not hurt nor destroy in all my holy mountain, saith the LORD.

Individuals who put their trust and faith in the word of God above all others, freely submit to His will and commandments. As such, they become self responsible, sufficient, and benevolent. When whole societies end up having a majority of people such as this, they alone are qualified to be self governed as well. When that majority is lost, so is the ability to self govern, and societies of government dependence begin to form. The latter societies are favored by the power hungry elitists of the world, who thrive upon the masses dependence upon them, and take advantage of the situation. Putting themselves in God’s place, that they may exercise control over humanity which God never intended one person should have over and above another. There is and has been a constant struggle between freedom loving and seeking peoples, and elitist minded people who will do whatever it takes to be on top with such ungodly authority over others. The devil of course, seeks to inspire the latter. That he may force his own will and characteristics upon all. While the gospel of Jesus Christ calls upon all to freely choose the pure righteous and holy will, and characteristics of God for their very own by faith in their for runner Jesus Christ.

These United States of America were formed by a majority of just such people - 

Quote
The colonists, including their philosophy in their religion, as the people up to that time had always done, were neither skeptics nor sensualists, but Christians. The school that bows to the senses as the sole interpreter of truth had little share in colonizing our America. The colonists from Main to Carolina, the adventurous companies of Smith, the proscribed Puritans that freighted the fleet of Winthrop, the Quaker outlaws that fled from jails with a Newgate prisoner as their sovereign-all had faith in God and in the soul. The system which had been revealed in Judea-the system which combines and perfects the symbolic wisdom of the Orient and the reflective genius of Greece- the system, conforming to reason, yet kindling enthusiasm; always hastening reform, yet always conservative; proclaiming absolute equality among men, yet not suddenly abolishing the unequal institutions of society; guaranteeing absolute freedom, yet invoking the inexorable restrictions of duty; in the highest degree theoretical, and yet in the highest degree practical; awakening the inner man to a consciousness of his destiny, and yet adapted with exact harmony to the outward world; at once divine and human-this system was professed in every part of our widely extended country, and cradled our freedom.

Our fathers were not only Christians; they were, even in Maryland by a vast majority, elsewhere almost unanimously, Protestants. Now the Protestant reformation, considered in its largest influence on politics, was the awakening of the common people to freedom of mind.

During the decline of the Roman empire, the oppressed invoked the power of Christianity to resist the supremacy of brute force; and the merciful priest assumed the office of protector.  The tribunes of Rome, appointed by the people, had been declared inviolable by the popular vote; the new tribunes of humanity, deriving their office from religion, and ordained by religion to a still more venerable sanctity, defended the poor man's house against lust by the sacrament of marriage;  restrained arbitrary passion by a menace of the misery due to sin un-repented of and un-atoned; and taught respect for the race by sprinkling every new-born child with the water of life, confirming every youth, bearing the oil of consolation to every death-bed, and sharing freely with every human being the consecrated emblem of God present with man.

But from protectors priests grew to be usurpers.  Expressing all moral truth by the mysteries of symbols, and reserving to themselves the administration of seven sacraments, they claimed a monopoly of thought and exercised an absolute spiritual dominion.  Human bondage was strongly riveted; for they had fastened it on the affections, the understanding, and the reason.  Ordaining their own successors, they ruled human destiny at birth, on entering active life, at marriage, when frailty breathed its confession, when faith aspired to communion with God, and at death.  (History of the United States, Bancroft Vol. 1.)

The vast majority of the founding fathers, were bible believing Protestant Christians. Many of whom had escaped the abuses of one of the persecuting united church and states of Europe. Catholic, and or Protestants who had not yet learned the corrupting and degrading influence of combining so called “Christianity” with the temporal or civil powers of this earth. A lesson which Roman Catholic leadership rejected wholesale long ago, and still does to this very day. Continuously writing papal encyclicals and doctrinal notes telling the whole world what to do. Which faithful Roman Catholics are supposed to bring about through civil legislation whenever and wherever possible. Many other elitist minded peoples and organizations have joined them as well, concerning that which they agree upon. Therefore have we and do we see this nation and world racing toward global authoritative government, over and above government for and by the people, as the founders of this nation envisioned.

This nation was able to develop and establish government for and by the people, exactly because the people at that time were personally responsible, sufficient, and reliant. They were personally responsible, sufficient, and reliant exactly because a majority of them were bible believing Protestant Christians. Who as such, had a moral guide and compass above that of any in this world, which enabled them to be so. Which was of course, the holy scriptures, and the commandments of God. Therefore did they seek and obtain freedom to pursue their own happiness without coercive government or religious interference. Self government and freedom, is only possible for the personally responsible, sufficient, and reliant. Not because they are actually self responsible, sufficient, and reliant, in and of themselves, but because they all look to God above humanity for divine guidance and rectitude. Who alone can provide the guidance and rectitude necessary to self government, and therefore freedom, liberty, and justice for all.

The decline of such government we see taking place in this nation and world is directly in relation to this nation’s and worlds increasing abandonment of biblical and therefore Godly guidance and teaching. The lack of personal responsibility created when fallen humanity is left with no higher moral standard than itself, leads to the need for greater responsibility and power being wielded by government. Therefore are we rapidly heading toward authoritative and coercive government once again, within nations and on a global scale. Exactly what the Church of Rome, Babylon the Great, has been calling for since she lost the power to control and manipulate the politics of this world she once had. As she demonstrated in the first papal encyclical published, after the Roman Church lost such power and the previous pope was dethroned and exiled, and the papacy disbanded during the French Revolution.

The ever increasing chaos, confusion, and lawlessness we see in this nation and world, are a direct result of Babylons increased intoxicating influence upon the same. Which chaos, confusion, and lawlessness, makes the people ever more ready and accepting of authoritarian leadership and government to restrain the same. Conditions which Babylon’s increased influence itself creates, with the end of reestablishing her albeit, usurped and abusive authoritative power in sight. She is a destroying mountain. With the wrecks and ruin of prosperous civilizations and peoples behind her. We will continue in the next chapter by examining the papacies first encyclical, written with healing the ruinous effects of the French Revolution upon her political influence and power, in mind.

We will close this chapter with the following extended quote once again. Although the quote is now almost a century and a half old, it has renewed relevance as the papacy continues to recoup all the powers she lost and more yet, on the world stage. Emphasis in quote is mine.

Quote
But the success of the Papacy, when closely examined, is not so surprising as it looks. It cannot be justly pronounced legitimate, or fairly won. Rome has ever been swimming with the tide. The evils and passions of society, which a true benefactress would have made it her business to cure -at least, to alleviate -Rome has studied rather to foster into strength, that she might be borne to power on the foul current which she herself had created. Amid battles, bloodshed, and confusion, has her path lain. The edicts of subservient Councils, the forgeries of hireling priests, the arms of craven monarchs, and the thunderbolts of excommunication have never been wanting to open her path. Exploits won by weapons of this sort are what her historians delight to chronicle. These are the victories that constitute her glory! And then, there remains yet another and great deduction from the apparent grandeur of her success, in that, after all, it is the success of only a few -a caste -the clergy. For although, during her early career, the Roman Church rendered certain important services to society -of which it will delight us to make mention in fitting place when she grew to maturity, and was able to develop her real genius, it was felt and acknowledged by all that her principles implied the ruin of all interests save her own, and that there was room in the world for none but herself. If her march, as shown in history down to the sixteenth century, is ever onwards, it is not less true that behind, on her path, lie the wrecks of nations, and the ashes of literature, of liberty, and of civilization.

Popery, then, we hold to be an after-growth of Paganism, whose deadly wound, dealt by the spiritual sword of Christianity, was healed. Its oracles had been silenced, its shrines demolished, and its gods consigned to oblivion; but the deep corruption of the human race, not yet cured by the promised effusion of the Spirit upon all flesh, revived it anew, and, under a Christian mask, reared other temples in its honour, built it another Pantheon, and replenished it with other gods, which, in fact, were but the ancient divinities under new names. All idolatries, in whatever age or country they have existed, are to be viewed but as successive developments of the one grand apostacy. That apostacy was commenced in Eden, and consummated at Rome. It had its rise in the plucking of the forbidden fruit; and it attained its acme in the supremacy of the Bishop of Rome,--Christ's Vicar on earth. The hope that he would "be as God," led man to commit the first sin; and that sin was perfected when the Pope "exalted 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." Popery is but the natural development of this great original transgression. It is just the early idolatries ripened and perfected. It is manifestly an enormous expansion of the same intensely malignant and fearfully destructive principle which these idolatries contained. The ancient Chaldean worshipping the sun,--the Greek deifying the powers of nature,--and the Roman exalting the race of primeval men into gods, are but varied manifestations of the same evil principle, namely, the utter alienation of the heart from God,--its proneness to hide itself amid the darkness of its own corrupt imaginations, and to become a god unto itself. That principle received the most fearful development which appears possible on earth, in the Mystery of Iniquity which came to be seated on the Seven Hills; for therein man deified himself, became God, nay, arrogated powers which lifted him high above God. Popery is the last, the most matured, the most subtle, the most skilfully contriven, and the most essentially diabolical form of idolatry which the world ever saw, or which, there is reason to believe, it ever will see. It is the ne plus ultra of man's wickedness, and the chef d'oeuvre of Satan's cunning and malignity. It is the greatest calamity, next to the Fall, which ever befell the human family. Farther away from God the world could not exist at all. The cement that holds society together, already greatly weakened, would be altogether destroyed, and the social fabric would instantly fall in ruins.(Book I. History of the Papacy. By Rev. J.A. Wylie, LL.D. Chapter I. Origin of the Papacy.)

CHAPTER 13
BABYLON'S STATED AGENDA

The following excerpts are taken from the first papal encyclical written and published after the French Revolution and dissolution of the papal states and the Vatican by Napoleon. They reveal her new efforts to undo all that the masses effected in their wholesale rejection of her usurped authority just over three decades prior to its publication. Some of those she considers enemies of this desired purpose are identified in the encyclical as well. The link provided above the quoted excerpts, is where the encyclical may be viewed in its entirety. Quoted encyclical is shaded, emphasis is mine.

On Liberalism and Religious Indifferentism

Pope Gregory XVI - 1832

ON LIBERALISM AND RELIGIOUS INDIFFERENTISM

Quote
To All Patriarchs, Primates, Archbishops, and Bishops of the Catholic World.

Venerable Brothers, Greetings and Apostolic Benediction.

We think that you wonder why, from the time of Our assuming the pontificate, We have not yet sent a letter to you as is customary and as Our benevolence for you demanded. We wanted very much to address you by that voice by which We have been commanded, in the person of blessed Peter, to strengthen the brethren.[1] You know what storms of evil and toil, at the beginning of Our pontificate, drove Us suddenly into the depths of the sea. If the right hand of God had not given Us strength, We would have drowned as the result of the terrible conspiracy of impious men. The mind recoils from renewing this by enumerating so many dangers; instead We bless the Father of consolation Who, having overthrown all enemies, snatched Us from the present danger. When He had calmed this violent storm, He gave Us relief from fear. At once We decided to advise you on healing the wounds of Israel; but the mountain of concerns We needed to address in order to restore public order delayed Us…………………

Though we cannot determine what exact evils and problems are being referred to in the above opening comments, we may safely determine that they are a direct result of the French Revolution and or mass rejection of papal authoritarianism which preceded this encyclical by a few decades of the revolution, and many centuries of Protestant resistance. As is apparent, the papacy considers itself and those it lords over, to be Israel. The healing of its wounds would therefore represent a healing of its spiritual and temporal authority, as both are fundamental realities of its structure and existence. Prophetically speaking then of course, this would, has, and does represent the healing of the first beast of the book of Revelation chapter 13. Which received its deadly wound from the French Revolution in the mass rejection of abusive papal spiritual and temporal authority.

Quote
4. We come to you grieving and sorrowful because We know that you are concerned for the faith in these difficult times. Now is truly the time in which the powers of darkness winnow the elect like wheat.[3] “The earth mourns and fades away….And the earth is infected by the inhabitants thereof, because they have transgressed the laws, they have changed the ordinances, they have broken the everlasting covenant.”[4]

Ah yes, those pesky infecting inhabitants of the earth who so recently rejected your abusive leadership and power. Never mind all of the very very good reasons they had to do so. No no. No confession or repentance on your own part for the evils you committed which lead to that rejection. Just condemnation for those who dared to do so. As though they had broken God’s law, changed His ordinances, and broken His everlasting covenant. As though the papacy itself and the pope were God.

2Th 2:1Now we beseech you, brethren, by the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ, and by our gathering together unto him, 2 That ye be not soon shaken in mind, or be troubled, neither by spirit, nor by word, nor by letter as from us, as that the day of Christ is at hand. 3 Let no man deceive you by any means: for that day shall not come, except there come a falling away first, and that man of sin be revealed, the son of perdition; 4 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, shewing himself that he is God.

Quote
5. We speak of the things which you see with your own eyes, which We both bemoan. Depravity exults; science is impudent; liberty, dissolute. The holiness of the sacred is despised; the majesty of divine worship is not only disapproved by evil men, but defiled and held up to ridicule. Hence sound doctrine is perverted and errors of all kinds spread boldly. The laws of the sacred, the rights, institutions, and discipline — none are safe from the audacity of those speaking evil. Our Roman See is harassed violently and the bonds of unity are daily loosened and severed. The divine authority of the Church is opposed and her rights shorn off. She is subjected to human reason and with the greatest injustice exposed to the hatred of the people and reduced to vile servitude. The obedience due bishops is denied and their rights are trampled underfoot. Furthermore, academies and schools resound with new, monstrous opinions, which openly attack the Catholic faith; this horrible and nefarious war is openly and even publicly waged. Thus, by institutions and by the example of teachers, the minds of the youth are corrupted and a tremendous blow is dealt to religion and the perversion of morals is spread. So the restraints of religion are thrown off, by which alone kingdoms stand. We see the destruction of public order, the fall of principalities, and the overturning of all legitimate power approaching. Indeed this great mass of calamities had its inception in the heretical societies and sects in which all that is sacrilegious, infamous, and blasphemous has gathered as bilge water in a ship’s hold, a congealed mass of all filth.

Never mind the constant abuses the people who rejected her usurped authority suffered at her hands, causing their rejection of her leadership. They are all damned because she is unquestionably divinely established authority. Her adulterous relations with the kings of the earth, with whom she walks upon the backs of the people, is divinely ordained. How dare they not be obedient to herself, her clergy, and her adulterous lovers. She must of course remedy such servile conditions, as those which our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ endured for the sake of righteousness, and warned His followers they would also if they picked up their crosses and followed their Savior.

The papacy suffered such things exactly because she would be no servant to mankind unless mankind bowed in obedience before her. To the contrary, she did, has, and does make life as difficult as possible for all who will not bow before her usurped authority. Regardless of how corrupt and abusive it became or becomes due to that same usurped power. She suffered the same fate as many other abusive forms of government of this world throughout history, when their abused citizens rose up against them. This because she is herself a kingdom and government of this world, usurping the power and name of Christ to her own ends. Professing to serve Him who declared His kingdom was not of this world, while being constantly in bed with the kings and leaders of this world. The only power she considers legitimate, is her own, and that granted by her.

She also begins to identify her enemies which caused her downfall, and must be overcome in the above. It is the heretical societies and sects which have and do exist without her permission. This of course includes all Protestants, and the second rebellious child of the papacy as well, rationalism, secular humanism, and or atheism if one prefers. Children or daughters spawned as it were, by their rejection of her abusive and usurped authority. Many of whom already have and do continue to return to her. Ever increasing allies submitting to her completely compromising global vision as not only a friend of this world, but the ruler of all its inhabitants unto judgement and destruction. So be it, as God has determined.

Rev 17:1 And there came one of the seven angels which had the seven vials, and talked with me, saying unto me, Come hither; I will shew unto thee the judgment of the great whore that sitteth upon many waters: 2 With whom the kings of the earth have committed fornication, and the inhabitants of the earth have been made drunk with the wine of her fornication. 3 So he carried me away in the spirit into the wilderness: and I saw a woman sit upon a scarlet coloured beast, full of names of blasphemy, having seven heads and ten horns. 4 And the woman was arrayed in purple and scarlet colour, and decked with gold and precious stones and pearls, having a golden cup in her hand full of abominations and filthiness of her fornication: 5 And upon her forehead was a name written, MYSTERY, BABYLON THE GREAT, THE MOTHER OF HARLOTS AND ABOMINATIONS OF THE EARTH.

6. These and many other serious things, which at present would take too long to list, but which you know well, cause Our intense grief. It is not enough for Us to deplore these innumerable evils unless We strive to uproot them. We take refuge in your faith and call upon your concern for the salvation of the Catholic flock. Your singular prudence and diligent spirit give Us courage and console Us, afflicted as We are with so many trials. We must raise Our voice and attempt all things lest a wild boar from the woods should destroy the vineyard or wolves kill the flock. It is Our duty to lead the flock only to the food which is healthful. In these evil and dangerous times, the shepherds must never neglect their duty; they must never be so overcome by fear that they abandon the sheep. Let them never neglect the flock and become sluggish from idleness and apathy. Therefore, united in spirit, let us promote our common cause, or more truly the cause of God; let our vigilance be one and our effort united against the common enemies.

There you have it. Immediately upon being reestablished enough to write and disperse encyclicals, the papacy begins her call for open warfare against all who rejected her, as she believes, God given spiritual and temporal authority. No holds barred. All enemies, especially those viewed as wild boars by the papacy as Martin Luther was, must be dealt with in any way shape or form possible. Luther of course rejected papal authority completely after being excommunicated, and entered into the battle for liberty of conscience in a big way. The papacy certainly cannot tolerate such as that.

7. Indeed you will accomplish this perfectly if, as the duty of your office demands, you attend to yourselves and to doctrine and meditate on these words: “the universal Church is affected by any and every novelty”[5] and the admonition of Pope Agatho: “nothing of the things appointed ought to be diminished; nothing changed; nothing added; but they must be preserved both as regards expression and meaning.”[6] Therefore may the unity which is built upon the See of Peter as on a sure foundation stand firm. May it be for all a wall and a security, a safe port, and a treasury of countless blessings.[7] To check the audacity of those who attempt to infringe upon the rights of this Holy See or to sever the union of the churches with the See of Peter, instill in your people a zealous confidence in the papacy and sincere veneration for it. As St. Cyprian wrote: “He who abandons the See of Peter on which the Church was founded, falsely believes himself to be a part of the Church.”[8]…………………….

The above would include her divinely appointed right to spiritually and temporally rule the world of course. Regardless of what any dissenters might think about that.

Quote
9. Furthermore, the discipline sanctioned by the Church must never be rejected or be branded as contrary to certain principles of natural law. It must never be called crippled, or imperfect or subject to civil authority. In this discipline the administration of sacred rites, standards of morality, and the reckoning of the rights of the Church and her ministers are embraced…………

It is true that the authentic church of Christ should never be subject to civil authorities, though it should cooperate with them as far as possible save when their policies conflict with a thus saith the Lord. The papacy accepts this rule, as it favors her own authority in any contest. Yet she rejects another biblical rule which is just as important, in attributing to herself that which our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ never taught or exemplified, but only discouraged. That is presuming civil or temporal power for herself in and of this world. Thereby making herself unquestionably a friend of this world, unto the only possible end of apostasy and corruption.

Joh 18:36  Jesus answered, My kingdom is not of this world: if my kingdom were of this world, then would my servants fight, that I should not be delivered to the Jews: but now is my kingdom not from hence.37 Pilate therefore said unto him, Art thou a king then? Jesus answered, Thou sayest that I am a king. To this end was I born, and for this cause came I into the world, that I should bear witness unto the truth. Every one that is of the truth heareth my voice.

Jas 4:1  From whence come wars and fightings among you? come they not hence, even of your lusts that war in your members? 2 Ye lust, and have not: ye kill, and desire to have, and cannot obtain: ye fight and war, yet ye have not, because ye ask not. 3 Ye ask, and receive not, because ye ask amiss, that ye may consume it upon your lusts. 4 Ye adulterers and adulteresses, know ye not that the friendship of the world is enmity with God? whosoever therefore will be a friend of the world is the enemy of God.

One cannot be on any more intimate terms with this world, than to be the one leading it.

13. Now We consider another abundant source of the evils with which the Church is afflicted at present: indifferentism. This perverse opinion is spread on all sides by the fraud of the wicked who claim that it is possible to obtain the eternal salvation of the soul by the profession of any kind of religion, as long as morality is maintained. Surely, in so clear a matter, you will drive this deadly error far from the people committed to your care. With the admonition of the apostle that “there is one God, one faith, one baptism”[16] may those fear who contrive the notion that the safe harbor of salvation is open to persons of any religion whatever. They should consider the testimony of Christ Himself that “those who are not with Christ are against Him,”[17] and that they disperse unhappily who do not gather with Him. Therefore “without a doubt, they will perish forever, unless they hold the Catholic faith whole and inviolate.”[18] Let them hear Jerome who, while the Church was torn into three parts by schism, tells us that whenever someone tried to persuade him to join his group he always exclaimed: “He who is for the See of Peter is for me.”[19] A schismatic flatters himself falsely if he asserts that he, too, has been washed in the waters of regeneration. Indeed Augustine would reply to such a man: “The branch has the same form when it has been cut off from the vine; but of what profit for it is the form, if it does not live from the root?”[20]

While the above condemnation embraces the false religions of this world, it also embraces all professing followers of Jesus Christ who are not of the Catholic faith. Echoing the infamous declaration of the papal bull Unam Sanctam,  - 

Quote
“Furthermore, we declare, we proclaim, we define that it is absolutely necessary for salvation that every human creature be subject to the Roman Pontiff.”

14. This shameful font of indifferentism gives rise to that absurd and erroneous proposition which claims that liberty of conscience must be maintained for everyone. It spreads ruin in sacred and civil affairs, though some repeat over and over again with the greatest impudence that some advantage accrues to religion from it. “But the death of the soul is worse than freedom of error,” as Augustine was wont to say.[21] When all restraints are removed by which men are kept on the narrow path of truth, their nature, which is already inclined to evil, propels them to ruin. Then truly “the bottomless pit”[22] is open from which John saw smoke ascending which obscured the sun, and out of which locusts flew forth to devastate the earth. Thence comes transformation of minds, corruption of youths, contempt of sacred things and holy laws — in other words, a pestilence more deadly to the state than any other. Experience shows, even from earliest times, that cities renowned for wealth, dominion, and glory perished as a result of this single evil, namely immoderate freedom of opinion, license of free speech, and desire for novelty.

Ta da! That’s right. As soon as the papacy was capable of doing so, she declared open warfare against these United States of America. She attacked one of our most important and basic Protestant principles, liberty of conscience. Supported in a big way by another founding principle of our nation built upon mature Protestant principles of government, separation of church and state. She has been at war with us and all others who support the same ever since. National lockdowns and mandates which she supports if not inspired, are just the most recent manifestations of her ever increasing successes. Her non stop mass migrations of her own adherents into our nation, presently and for many years now from our southern boarder, are ever increasing her ability to lord herself over us through a subjugated majority of them within. As we have already been witnessing for many decades now, for those who would care to admit of such, so few there be. The following frank confession written many years ago in the Catholic publication Our Sunday Visitor, can be seen to have been coming to fruition for many years now.

Quote
’If Catholics ever attain, which they surely will, though at a distant day, the immense numerical majority in the United States, religious liberty, as at present understood, will be at an end. So say our enemies; so say we.’(Our Sunday Visitor, pg. 3, Apr. 18, 1915)

15. Here We must include that harmful and never sufficiently denounced freedom to publish any writings whatever and disseminate them to the people, which some dare to demand and promote with so great a clamor. We are horrified to see what monstrous doctrines and prodigious errors are disseminated far and wide in countless books, pamphlets, and other writings which, though small in weight, are very great in malice. We are in tears at the abuse which proceeds from them over the face of the earth. Some are so carried away that they contentiously assert that the flock of errors arising from them is sufficiently compensated by the publication of some book which defends religion and truth. Every law condemns deliberately doing evil simply because there is some hope that good may result. Is there any sane man who would say poison ought to be distributed, sold publicly, stored, and even drunk because some antidote is available and those who use it may be snatched from death again and again?

Ta da! Another direct attack upon another one of these United States foundational, basic, and fundamental principles. Freedom of speech and the press. Do we not see these freedoms being increasingly jeopardized and threatened the world over as the papacies power and influence increases? Yes we do. Has the world not been being warned of these very things for years now concerning papal Encyclicals and Doctrinal Notes addressing the internet and social media? While the papacy has been meeting with, hopping in bed with, and instructing the leaders and owners of these conglomerates of communications the world over? Yes it has. All such is simply the continued war against freedom and liberty the papacy outlined in this encyclical of long ago. Which itself was and is nothing short of the resurrection if you will, of the exact abuses which caused this world to reject her usurped authority enmass and climactically in the French Revolution. Look at the French now, under the Roman Catholic globalist leadership of Macron.

Will the world at large accept this straight testimony about the recorded and published intentions of the papacy, and obvious successes of that intent right before our very eyes? No it will not, just as scripture has predicted. Go too. Turn your heads, close your eyes, stop your ears. Return to the couch and bow before your idiot box, or computer, or phone. Choose your side between the left, liberals, and Demlicans who major in misinformation and minor in misdirection, or the right, conservatives, Republicrats who major in misdirection and minor in misinformation. Never mind that man behind the curtain who manipulates both with his vast number of constituents and minions on either side if the isle.

16. The Church has always taken action to destroy the plague of bad books. This was true even in apostolic times for we read that the apostles themselves burned a large number of books.[23] It may be enough to consult the laws of the fifth Council of the Lateran on this matter and the Constitution which Leo X published afterwards lest “that which has been discovered advantageous for the increase of the faith and the spread of useful arts be converted to the contrary use and work harm for the salvation of the faithful.”[24] This also was of great concern to the fathers of Trent, who applied a remedy against this great evil by publishing that wholesome decree concerning the Index of books which contain false doctrine.[25] “We must fight valiantly,” Clement XIII says in an encyclical letter about the banning of bad books, “as much as the matter itself demands and must exterminate the deadly poison of so many books; for never will the material for error be withdrawn, unless the criminal sources of depravity perish in flames.”[26] Thus it is evident that this Holy See has always striven, throughout the ages, to condemn and to remove suspect and harmful books. The teaching of those who reject the censure of books as too heavy and onerous a burden causes immense harm to the Catholic people and to this See. They are even so depraved as to affirm that it is contrary to the principles of law, and they deny the Church the right to decree and to maintain it.

Does the above not speak loudly and clearly enough on its own? When she had the power to do so, the papacy burned the author of books she disapproved of, with their own books. This was not considered abuse of course, but rather God’s divine will, as the papacy has declared itself the visible representation of. In the place of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. Lest we forget, God’s holy word was one of the books she outlawed in the vernacular, and burned regularly along with persons who dared to write and publish the same. Make no mistake about it, the present politically motivated trends of censorship are a direct result of her increasing power and influence upon the same. She wants her right to burn and or censor books back, on a global scale.

The Apostles never commanded book burnings, or even requested such that we know from scripture. This is simply another papal lie to support their own usurped and abusive authority. The one incident recorded in the book of acts, was voluntary action taken on the part of those whose books they were, after their conversion.

Quote
17. We have learned that certain teachings are being spread among the common people in writings which attack the trust and submission due to princes; the torches of treason are being lit everywhere. Care must be taken lest the people, being deceived, are led away from the straight path. May all recall, according to the admonition of the apostle that “there is no authority except from God; what authority there is has been appointed by God. Therefore he who resists authority resists the ordinances of God; and those who resist bring on themselves condemnation.”[27] Therefore both divine and human laws cry out against those who strive by treason and sedition to drive the people from confidence in their princes and force them from their government…………

More phony baloney from the papacy. Directly attacking yet another foundational principle of these United States of America. Representative government for the people, and by the people. She lies once again in basically stating that the abused must be obedient to their abusive leaders according to scripture. Again, make no mistake about it, the ever increasing gap between the political class and the rest of us, is a direct result of her increasing power and influence. She is a monarchial and elitist system. Who has been, is, and will always continue to support huge authoritarian elitist government. As long as that government is in bed with, and being manipulated by her. Otherwise her entire purpose is subversion from within until the former may be accomplished. She is the destroyer of the freedoms and liberties of nations and peoples, and her global guidance will lead to global destruction by the judgments of God. 

On and on this document goes, telling all the people of the world that they must willingly bow before her and her adulterous political lovers as obedient little sheeple “Christians”. While she herself will bow before no one, but as is obvious from this encyclical itself, go to immediate literal war with any that would dare to demand such from her. Our Lord paved the way with personal example, and infinite sacrifice and humility. She will do no such thing. To the contrary -

Rev 18:1  And after these things I saw another angel come down from heaven, having great power; and the earth was lightened with his glory. 2 And he cried mightily with a strong voice, saying, Babylon the great is fallen, is fallen, and is become the habitation of devils, and the hold of every foul spirit, and a cage of every unclean and hateful bird. 3 For all nations have drunk of the wine of the wrath of her fornication, and the kings of the earth have committed fornication with her, and the merchants of the earth are waxed rich through the abundance of her delicacies. 4 And I heard another voice from heaven, saying, Come out of her, my people, that ye be not partakers of her sins, and that ye receive not of her plagues. 5 For her sins have reached unto heaven, and God hath remembered her iniquities. 6 Reward her even as she rewarded you, and double unto her double according to her works: in the cup which she hath filled fill to her double. 7 How much she hath glorified herself, and lived deliciously, so much torment and sorrow give her: for she saith in her heart, I sit a queen, and am no widow, and shall see no sorrow. 8 Therefore shall her plagues come in one day, death, and mourning, and famine; and she shall be utterly burned with fire: for strong is the Lord God who judgeth her.

Quote
19. These beautiful examples of the unchanging subjection to the princes necessarily proceeded from the most holy precepts of the Christian religion. They condemn the detestable insolence and improbity of those who, consumed with the unbridled lust for freedom, are entirely devoted to impairing and destroying all rights of dominion while bringing servitude to the people under the slogan of liberty. Here surely belong the infamous and wild plans of the Waldensians, the Beghards, the Wycliffites, and other such sons of Belial, who were the sores and disgrace of the human race; they often received a richly deserved anathema from the Holy See. For no other reason do experienced deceivers devote their efforts, except so that they, along with Luther, might joyfully deem themselves “free of all.” To attain this end more easily and quickly, they undertake with audacity any infamous plan whatever.

With what disdain does the papacy look upon all who hold liberty and freedom from other mere fallible men who would lord themselves over them, dear. Thereby destroying her and their, self imposed supposed rights of dominion over them. Those whom she persecuted, imprisoned, tortured, murdered, exterminated, and banned form societies when she had the power to do so in the past. Which she is now rapidly putting back in place with her new elitist lovers, bound and determine to apply such self exalted and proclaimed rights of dominion over all of us again, for themselves today. As she increasingly mounts the globalist final beast of biblical prophecy which she and her adulterous elitist lovers are rapidly forming through created chaos, confusion, and fear mongering.

Quote
20. Nor can We predict happier times for religion and government from the plans of those who desire vehemently to separate the Church from the state, and to break the mutual concord between temporal authority and the priesthood. It is certain that that concord which always was favorable and beneficial for the sacred and the civil order is feared by the shameless lovers of liberty. ……………………………

Ah yes, those shameless lovers of liberty, who would keep Roman Catholic priests from exercising temporal authority.  Which without, Roman Catholicism would basically cease to exist. Not to mention go broke, without receiving the countless billions of dollars every year she does, from the governments of this world. With or without the consent of their people. Our Lord said His kingdom was and is not of this world. Roman Catholicism says the temporal authority of this world must in bed with her, and financially support her. Two more major differences between the Bride, and Babylon. The former is not of this world, the latter is completely dependent upon the power and wealth that be of this world. Her supposed distributive justice, is just another ploy to put all the power and wealth of this world under her own thumb. She loves the poor because they are dependent upon her and her lovers. Therefore does she create the poor as well, wherever possible.

Don’t worry, she and her elitist lovers have promised us, we will own nothing and be happy. They will own it all, and distribute it as they please, and you will be happy about that, or else. This is after all, their self appointed divine right of dominion over all of humanity. Be quiet and submit, like good little sheeple.

23. May Our dear sons in Christ, the princes, support these Our desires for the welfare of Church and State with their resources and authority. May they understand that they received their authority not only for the government of the world, but especially for the defense of the Church. They should diligently consider that whatever work they do for the welfare of the Church accrues to their rule and peace. Indeed let them persuade themselves that they owe more to the cause of the faith than to their kingdom. Let them consider it something very great for themselves as We say with Pope St. Leo, “if in addition to their royal diadem the crown of faith may be added.” Placed as if they were parents and teachers of the people, they will bring them true peace and tranquility, if they take special care that religion and piety remain safe. God, after all, calls Himself “King of kings and Lord of lords.”

Ah yes, Babylon’s invitation to the royalty of the day, to come a whoring after her again. Come and have illicit relations with us once again, as in the days of old, when we ruled together over the lives and consciences of all. The days of princes and kings however, did not return as she desired. She therefore then, turned her attentions toward dictators and representative governments. Supporting Hitler, Mussolini, and others who ultimately failed. Today she works within all nations possible, to subvert their leaders and politics toward her own goals. With much success. Even successfully hijacking the elected leaders of supposed representative governments. Who once in office, deny and defy the will of the people, in favor of their illicit lover, the Church of Rome and the rest of her elitist lovers and minions.

Quote
24. That all of this may come to pass prosperously and happily, let Us raise Our eyes and hands to the most holy Virgin Mary, who alone crushes all heresies, and is Our greatest reliance and the whole reason for Our hope.[33] May she implore by her patronage a successful outcome for Our plans and actions. Let Us humbly ask of the Prince of the Apostles, Peter and his co-apostle Paul that all of you may stand as a wall lest a foundation be laid other than that which has already been laid. Relying on this happy hope, We trust that the Author and Crown of Our faith Jesus Christ will console Us in all these Our tribulations. We lovingly impart the apostolic benediction to you, venerable brothers, and to the sheep committed to your care as a sign of heavenly aid.

Given in Rome at St. Mary Major, on August 15, the feast of the Assumption of the Virgin, in the year of Our Lord 1832, the second year of Our Pontificate.

Although this encyclical appears to contradict the course of later popes up to the present, concerning their allusions towards peace and unity, do not be fooled by the devices of the evil one’s institution. This has been a matter of necessity alone. Having failed in her attempts with kings and princes to reestablish monarchial governments she could be in bed with, a different plan and course of action became necessary. She has been adapting and adjusting along with the changing tides of politics and government. Her relations with, and support of several of these failed dictatorships or systems of government, have turned out to be relations or support of basic evil. Some of which she still and increasingly supports to date. To the detriment of the truly free societies which our founding fathers and other envisioned. Destroying these visions from within and without, with the aid of all of her illicit lovers. The history is there for all who truly desire to do so, to see.

As stated even in this encyclical under examination, any and all things must be attempted if necessary, to regain what she had lost. Her present pretended course of peace and unity, are simply veils to conceal her true purposes delineated in this most honest deliberation we have just examined. Which the scriptures themselves have predicted.

Dan 8:23  And in the latter time of their kingdom, when the transgressors are come to the full, a king of fierce countenance, and understanding dark sentences, shall stand up. 24 And his power shall be mighty, but not by his own power: and he shall destroy wonderfully, and shall prosper, and practise, and shall destroy the mighty and the holy people. 25 And through his policy also he shall cause craft to prosper in his hand; and he shall magnify himself in his heart, and by peace shall destroy many: he shall also stand up against the Prince of princes; but he shall be broken without hand.

Through craft and deceit regarding false proclamations of peace, the Popes shall destroy many. As they already have many times.

1Th 5:1 But of the times and the seasons, brethren, ye have no need that I write unto you. 2 For yourselves know perfectly that the day of the Lord so cometh as a thief in the night. 3 For when they shall say, Peace and safety; then sudden destruction cometh upon them, as travail upon a woman with child; and they shall not escape. 4 But ye, brethren, are not in darkness, that that day should overtake you as a thief. 5 Ye are all the children of light, and the children of the day: we are not of the night, nor of darkness. 6 Therefore let us not sleep, as do others; but let us watch and be sober. 7 For they that sleep sleep in the night; and they that be drunken are drunken in the night. 8 But let us, who are of the day, be sober, putting on the breastplate of faith and love; and for an helmet, the hope of salvation. 9 For God hath not appointed us to wrath, but to obtain salvation by our Lord Jesus Christ, 10 Who died for us, that, whether we wake or sleep, we should live together with him. 11 Wherefore comfort yourselves together, and edify one another, even as also ye do.

CHAPTER 14
AGENDA CONFIRMED


https://www.papalencyclicals.net/Greg16/g16singu.htm

The following quoted encyclical may be viewed at the link provided above. Emphasis is mine.


Singulari Nos

On the Errors of Lammenais

Pope Gregory XVI - 1834

ON THE ERRORS OF LAMMENAIS

To All the Patriarchs, Primates, Archbishops, and Bishops.

Venerable Brothers, Greetings and Apostolic Blessing.

Quote
The illustrious examples of faith, obedience, and devotion conveyed by the enthusiastic reception given everywhere to Our encyclical letter of August 15, 1832, gave Us great joy. We declared in it the only sound doctrine to be followed concerning the main points in the fulfillment of the duties of Our office for the whole Catholic flock. The statements made by many who had approved those counsels and opinions which so grieved Us have increased Our joy, for they have acted as prompt defenders and supporters of Our decrees. We recognized that that evil which is still inflamed against both sacred and civil matters is not yet removed. Widely disseminated but very shameless pamphlets and certain gloomy machinations openly denoted those things which We condemned in a letter sent to Our venerable brother, the bishop of Rennes, in the month of October. Moreover, his response to those things which cause Us so much concern and anxiety has been gratefully received. His statement sent to Us on December 11 of last year distinctly confirmed that he would follow solely and absolutely the teaching transmitted in Our encyclical letter and that he would not write or approve anything which differs from it. In that matter We opened Our heart in paternal love to the son who was moved by Our warnings. We should also have trusted that he would produce more brilliant writings in time to confirm his compliance in word and deed with Our decision.

2. It hardly seemed believable that he whom We welcomed with such good will and affection would so quickly forget Our kindness and desert Our resolution. We can hardly believe that the good hope which occupied Us with the fruit of Our teaching has died. However, We have learned of the pamphlet written in French under the title Paroles d’un croyant, for it has been printed by this man and disseminated everywhere. It was written under a pseudonym, but matters of public record make clear the author’s identity. Though small in size, it is enormous in wickedness.

3. We were very much amazed, venerable brothers, when at first We understood the blindness of this wretched author, for in him knowledge does not come from God, but from the elements of the world; this “knowledge” bursts forth. Against the oath solemnly given in his declaration, he cloaked Catholic teaching in enticing verbal artifice, in order ultimately to oppose it and overthrow it. We expressed this in Our letter mentioned above concerning both the dutiful submission toward authorities and the prevention of the fatal contamination of the people by indifferentism. It also concerned measures to use against the spreading license of ideas and speeches. Finally, it concerned that freedom of conscience which should be thoroughly condemned and the repulsive conspiracy of societies enkindling destruction of sacred and state affairs, even from the followers of false religions, as We have made clear by the authority handed down to Us.

4. The mind shrinks from reading through those things in which the author tries to break the bond of loyalty and submission toward leaders. Once the torch of treason is ignited everywhere, it ruins public order, fosters contempt of government, and stimulates lawlessness. It overthrows every element of sacred and civil power. From this, the writer transposes the power of princes, through a new and wicked idea, to the power of Satan and an omen of subterfuge, as if it were dangerous to divine law, even a work of sin. He brands the same marks of wickedness on the priests and rulers because of the conspiracy of crimes and labors in which he dreams they are joined against the rights of the people. Not content with such temerity, he thrusts forth every kind of opinion, speech, and freedom of conscience.
He prays that everything will be favorable and happy for the soldiers who will fight to free liberty from tyranny, and he encourages groups and associations in the furious combat which engulfs everything. He stands so firm in such heinous thoughts that We feel him trample right from the beginning Our advice and orders.

5. It is annoying to recount here everything which throws all human and divine affairs into confusion with the wicked fruit of impiety and daring. But these things especially arouse Our indignation and should clearly not be tolerated by religion. Especially dangerous is the fact that holy Scriptures that have been tainted with the errors of this author are disseminated to the unwary. Acting as if he were sent and inspired by God, he speaks in the name of the Trinity and then uses Scripture as a pretext for releasing the people from the law of obedience. He twists the words of holy Scripture in a bold and cunning manner in order to firmly establish his depraved ravings. He does this in order that, as St. Bernard used to say, “He might spread clouds for light or give poison for honey, or rather in the honey, creating a new Gospel for the people and laying a different foundation from the one which is already laid.”

6. He who placed Us as scouts in Israel for bids Us to hide in silence the great harm brought to sound doctrine. So We must warn about the error those whom Jesus, the author and perfector of the faith, entrusted to Our care. Therefore, We consulted many of Our venerable brothers, the cardinals of the Holy Roman Church. We have studied the book entitled Paroles d’un croyant. By Our apostolic power, We condemn the book: furthermore, We decree that it be perpetually condemned. It corrupts the people by a wicked abuse of the word of God, to dissolve the bonds of all public order and to weaken all authority. It arouses, fosters, and strengthens seditions, riots, and rebellions in the empires. We condemn the book because it contains false, calumnious, and rash propositions which lead to anarchy; which are contrary to the word of God; which are impious, scandalous, and erroneous; and which the Church already condemned, especially in regard to the Waldensians, Wycliffites, Hussites, and other heretics of this kind.

7. Venerable brothers, it will now be your duty to strongly support Our orders which We urgently demand as necessary for the safety and welfare of both sacred and civil affairs. Let us see that no writing of this kind comes out of hiding into the light, since it would be that much more harmful if it were to set sail through the passion of insane reform and creep far and wide like a crab among the people. It should be your duty to encourage sound doctrine through this whole affair and to make known the craftiness of the innovators. Watch more keenly over the care of the Christian flock, so that zeal for religion, piety of actions, and public peace might happily flourish and increase. We wait for this, trusting in your faith and commitment to the common good so that, with the help of God who is the Father of lights, We might give thanks (with St. Cyprian) that the error has been understood and weakened and then laid low, because it was recognized and discovered.

8. As for the rest, We greatly deplore the fact that, where the ravings of human reason extend, there is somebody who studies new things and strives to know more than is necessary, against the advice of the apostle. There you will find someone who is overconfident in seeking the truth outside the Catholic Church, in which it can be found without even a light tarnish of error. Therefore, the Church is called, and is indeed, a pillar and foundation of truth. You correctly understand, venerable brothers, that We speak here also of that erroneous philosophical system which was recently brought in and is clearly to be condemned. This system, which comes from the contemptible and unrestrained desire for innovation, does not seek truth where it stands in the received and holy apostolic inheritance. Rather, other empty doctrines, futile and uncertain doctrines not approved by the Church, are adopted. Only the most conceited men wrongly think that these teachings can sustain and support that truth.

9. While We write these things to understand and preserve the sound doctrine divinely delegated to Us, We sign over the harsh wound inflicted to Our heart by the error of Our son. In the great sadness We suffer, there is no hope of consolation, unless We can recall him to the way of righteousness. Therefore, at the same time, let Us raise Our eyes and hands to Him who is the leader of wisdom and the corrector of the wise. Let Us beseech Him with repeated prayer to give this man a docile heart and a great spirit to hear the voice of the most loving and most sorrowful Father. May he hasten the joy of the Church, the joy of your order, the joy of this Holy See, and the joy of Our unworthiness. Certainly We shall provide an auspicious and happy occasion to take hold of him and embrace him as a son returning to the bosom of his Father. We are and We shall be very optimistic from his example that others will come to their senses, others who might have been led into error by the same author. May there be an agreement of teaching, one course of thinking, one harmony of action and study, among all for the good of sacred and public matters. We need you and We expect you to beseech the Lord with Us in your pastoral concern for this great gift. We pray for divine assistance in this work and We lovingly impart Our apostolic blessing on you and on your flock as a sign of this.

Given in Rome, at St. Peter’s, on June 25, 1834, in the fourth year of Our pontificate.

The above encyclical appears to be more or less a response to a booklet published by a Catholic who would not agree or submit to the commands of the previous encyclical we just examined. Judging by the tone of the document, this individual should have considered himself lucky, that the papacy had lost its ability to procure civil penalties and or death for the disobedient.

True to her nature, Babylon compounds church and state again in the above, declaring all who do not agree or submit to her sentiments enemies of sacred and civil affairs. How dare this individual have and exercise freedom of speech and liberty of conscience, to openly disagree with her teachings and use of civil power to enforce compliance with the same. All such is of course presented as a serious danger to herself and the princes and rulers she is always in bed with. She has warred against government by and for the people since her inception, and always will. Having to change her approach and strategies over time as her calls to reestablish the old order were so widely ignored.

We can see her age old desire to silence and censure all dissent in this document. Those who are paying attention also understand her heavy influence regarding the censorship we see today in the mainstream and social media arena’s. She has invested heavily in both, often meeting with the leaders and CEO’s of them, and already controls much of what the world will or will not hear and see. This trend will only continue to increase of course, if she can help it.

She again attacks certain groups from the past which she sets forth as examples of those she properly dealt with and put in their places. Others who dared in the past to exercise freedom of conscience and speech against her divine authority and will, as she sees it. The Waldensians, Wycliffites, Hussites, and other heretics. People, Christians, who dared to disagree with her teachings and self declared right to force the same upon all. These whom the papacy persecuted, cut off from societies, outlawed, hunted, imprisoned, tortured, murdered, burned at the stake, and exterminated. All in the name of Jesus Christ, and still apparently proud of doing so when this encyclical was written.

No institution on earth more properly fits the description of the man of sin given by the apostle Paul, or BABYLON THE GREAT described in the book of Revelation, than the papacy and their pope. Who set themselves up in the temple of God, and placed their man of sin over it, as judge, jury, and executioner of all on this earth. Setting himself up in the temple of God, as though he were God. Blasphemy upon blasphemy. As she is now and intends to do once again through her non stop illicit relations with her elitist and power hungry lovers of this doomed world. Presenting herself and her illicit religious, political, and “scientific” lovers, as the saviors of this world for all who will submit to the same. This in the place as it were, of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ, who alone has and will save anyone. 

2Th 2:1  Now we beseech you, brethren, by the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ, and by our gathering together unto him, 2 That ye be not soon shaken in mind, or be troubled, neither by spirit, nor by word, nor by letter as from us, as that the day of Christ is at hand. 3 Let no man deceive you by any means: for that day shall not come, except there come a falling away first, and that man of sin be revealed, the son of perdition; 4 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, shewing himself that he is God. 5 Remember ye not, that, when I was yet with you, I told you these things? 6 And now ye know what withholdeth that he might be revealed in his time. 7 For the mystery of iniquity doth already work: only he who now letteth will let, until he be taken out of the way. 8 And then shall that Wicked be revealed, whom the Lord shall consume with the spirit of his mouth, and shall destroy with the brightness of his coming: 9 Even him, whose coming is after the working of Satan with all power and signs and lying wonders, 10 And with all deceivableness of unrighteousness in them that perish; because they received not the love of the truth, that they might be saved. 11 And for this cause God shall send them strong delusion, that they should believe a lie: 12 That they all might be damned who believed not the truth, but had pleasure in unrighteousness.

Short as the above quoted encyclical was, it revealed no changes from the previous one examined. Its message still being as hostile toward the founding principles of the United States, as the first one examined. Babylon’s encyclicals have grown far more lengthy and complicated over time. Nevertheless, their goal is the same today and always as that of those already examined. In the establishment of her authority once again, over and above all others. We will end our examination of papal encyclicals with this chapter. Moving on to a closer look at the Babylon’s of the old and new covenants in the next chapters.

Words do not fail me on this, but words that will not get me booted off here shall not be uttered.

Harumph! Doctrines from Frankie? Teachings from Frankie? None of which are the truth.
