Mystery Babylon is the title given to a certain entity as recorded in the Apostle John’s Revelation of Jesus Christ. The description of John’s vision reveals both a religious system as well as a political power. Since this vision pertains to the end of the age, we may know the legacy of Ancient Babylon has endured throughout the ages, though the ancient city of Nimrod, as well as Neo-Babylon of King Nebuchadnezzar, has long passed away.
In this article we will see how such a legacy of the Babylonian Tradition remains thoroughly rooted in every culture of the world at present. Most of our favorite songs, movies, and holiday traditions, so dear to our hearts, are bursting with Babylonian themes. Furthermore, we will match the fingerprint of John’s description of Mystery Babylon, Mother of Harlots.
Origins We first see the ancient city of King Nimrod with the infamous ‘Tower of Babel’ as cited in Genesis 11. At face value, it may not be obvious what was so wrong with the Tower of Babel Movement, but a closer analysis of the Scriptures, as well as the Babylonian Religion, makes it clear this was most definitely a movement quite contrary to Almighty God.
It was a movement that ignored the preeminence of God and sought its own supremacy & glory. A system which would build its own “Holy Mountain” like the heavenly high place Lucifer was cast down from (Ezekiel 28:14-16); And it was the same prideful motivation and plot which resulted in the fall of Lucifer – aspiring to ascend above the Most High, and create a new order. At its essence, the Tower of Babel Movement was a revolt against God with a Luciferian System.
Below are images of different recreations of the Tower of Babel which represents its blasphemous religious system
The pyramid shaped temples included a prominent ‘stairway to heaven’ which is by no means irrelevant to the classic Led Zeppelin song
God recognized the strength of their plot was in its unity, so He broke them apart with different languages. This scattering put an end to the movement at a grand scale, but the Babylonian Mystery Religion was taken with each group of people who dispersed throughout the world in every direction. The Mysteries inevitably splintered into many variations, yet there still remained common characters & themes which synchronized.
Some of the main common tenants among the various Pagan Mysteries:
- Idolatry – Sun-God & Moon-Goddess ranking supreme above multiple lower ranking gods
- Astrology – gods represented by the stars – power of the universe
- Mother & Son Cult – “Queen of Heaven” with her “Divine Son”
- Humanism – “spiritual evolution” – from human unto deity
See below how these ancient artifacts from completely different continents are essentially identical, every detail having deep significance, most notably the sun symbol with serpents. The Egyptian version includes the sun encased within the crescent moon, which is the way it’s rendered in most other depictions, representing the Sun-God (Nimrod), otherwise known as Marduk, Baal, Ra, Moloch, etc. and the Moon-Goddess (Semeramis), otherwise known as Ishtar, Ashtoreth, Isis, Venus, Aphrodite, etc. — and titles like “Queen of Heaven”
Nimrod & Semeramis’ Solar Cult-Empire
From the very beginning, the legend of King Nimrod must have quickly developed into the Sun-God, who’s god-name became Marduk. Subsequently, his queen Semeramis positioned as the Moon-Goddess, who’s name became Ishtar, and heralded as the “Queen of Heaven”, reinforcing their temporal power with religious power. Thus ‘emperor worship’ became a common hallmark among the Babylonian System, most notably with the Pharaoh’s of Egypt and Caesar’s of Rome (including Papal Caesar’s).
Scattered with different languages, the people yet retained the same grand god & goddess – just with different names. The sun-god was identified by the Canaanites, Syrians, Phoenicians, and Israelites by the name Baal; the Ammonites called him Moloch, Egypt called Ra, and so on. The bible contains many references to Baal and Moloch.
In this classic painting by Sandro Botticelli (1486) depicting The Birth of Venus – Grand Goddess of love, sex, beauty and fertility – the Roman version of the “Queen of Heaven” – known by the Greeks as Aphrodite, or Ashtoreth by Canaanites, Israelites & Syrians, Isis by the Egyptians and so on. It doesn’t take much perception to note the allure of her beauty; Other renditions show her much more sexualized than this, which has served through the ages to lure the masses with sex-magic. The sexuality associated with the so-called “Queen of Heaven” has captivated the minds & hearts of many with spellbinding power, which has fueled deep affection, devotion, and zeal. Just look at the event recorded in Acts 19:21-41, of the religious backlash caused when the Ephesian Queen Goddess Diana was abandoned by many of the Ephesians upon the proclamation of the Gospel: A prime example of just how fanatical her devotees were, which also reveals the element of greed associated with the various lusts of her allure.
A current rendering of the Moon-Goddess – ‘Queen of Heaven’ in the movie ‘The Hobbit’ Sexual promiscuity, being validated with religious devotion, softened the harlotry spirit with the notion of “sexual freedom”. Thus, instead of branding this goddess as the Great Harlot, her essence was depicted as that of supreme beauty & virtue. However, great disdain & indignation towards the “Queen of Heaven” is clearly expressed by the very words of the true and living God as recorded in Jeremiah 44 .
Multiple other gods of lower rankings were also a common thread among the various Mysteries. Represented by the planets, moon & stars, most of us are somewhat acquainted with some of the Greek & Roman gods since the planets and calendar months are named after them. And speaking of calendars, did I mention the universal pagan winter solstice festivals are centered around the high-holy birthday of the sun-god on December 25th? – That’s a whole other article though… – see The Son of God Joined with the Sun God | The Christmas Mixer
A Luciferian System
At its core, the Babylonian Religious System has been a Luciferian System; The basis of the Luciferian Mysteries is an inverted version of Eden, whereby God is made out to be a tyrant, keeping man enslaved in ignorance, while Lucifer projected as the true god and savior, rescues man with enlightenment, to become “as God”.
Such “enlightenment” laid the foundation for a pyramid power structure of ascending levels, which initiates could only advance by progressive attainment of ‘secret knowledge’. Secret knowledge is what occult means, which has been regulated among secret societies of various fraternities throughout the ages.
A diagram illustrating an example of the occult pyramid power structure of various levels. The broad masses remain at the bottom level oblivious to the fact that they are part of a Luciferian system that only those initiates at the upper level know. The 33 degrees of the Scottish Rite was taken from the Talmud which Jewish Rabbis wrote during their exile in Babylon.
Yet, as already stated, the Luciferian System is certainly not limited to various religious cults, but is also a most formidable political system, just like it was from the establishment of Ancient Babylon, and continued through great empires like Egypt, as well as the four successive kingdoms of Neo-Babylon, succeeded by Persia, then unto Greece, and finally unto Rome. Likewise, the Babylon of end times, as addressed in Revelation, Mystery Babylon, is described as both a religious entity as well as a political power which attains world dominance.
And it is that very objective of Lucifer and his rebellion of angels to gain world dominance through both religious and political power. These are the actual spirits behind all the so-called gods/idols, which serve as the means to the end. Notice how the scriptures use demons and idols interchangeably in Psalm 106:37-38:
“They even sacrificed their sons and their daughters to the demons,
And shed innocent blood, the blood of their sons and their
daughters, whom they sacrificed to the idols of Canaan…”
“What do I mean then? That a thing sacrificed to idols is anything, or that an idol is anything? No, but I say that the things which the Gentiles sacrifice, they sacrifice to demons and not to God; and I do not want you to become sharers in demons.”
The main point of Apostle Paul’s words above is – idols are not real gods, but behind such idols are seductive demons deceiving the world.
The same spirits are working behind icons & idols of our day through pop-stars, rock-stars, movie-stars, super-stars, super-heroes, political leaders, and certainly religious leaders. So it is important to realize that idolatry is not just an ancient thing, nor does it merely come from superstitious imaginations of men, but from seductive spirits enticing human lusts, even in some of the most sophisticated ways – to influence & control unto world domination, via Mystery Babylon.
Obviously, a global dominating power would have many counterparts, both religious and political. Many religious, including Freemasonry, Islam, Hinduism, Buddhism, Universalism, National & World Council of Churches, etc. – and many political such as United Nations, European Union, Council on Foreign Relations, Banking Cartels, Multinational Intelligence Agencies, etc. We will get to the very apex of this shortly.
The Mother & Son Cult is a most peculiar theme which has very strong continuity throughout so many different pagan religions. Notice all the depictions below display sun discs, or halos – representing the sun-god.
This also finds its origin in ancient Babylonian drama with King Nimrod and his queen Semeramis. There are many versions of the tragedy, some of which involve intrigue, but the basic common theme involved the death of King Nimrod, following the birth of Tammuz of Queen Semeramis. Tummuz was proclaimed to be the immaculately conceived reincarnation of the Sun God (Nimrod).
While the “Queen of Heaven/Mother of God” and her immaculate conception of the “Divine Son” rings of a theme so prominent in the Catholic Faith, we need not be too confused by simply acknowledging yet another rendition of the same Pagan Mother & Son Cult, only dressed in a Christian cloak. While the Divine Mother & Son Theme is positioned at the very crown of the Catholic Faith, sitting at the right hand of the “Father” (Pope), so every other aspect of Catholicism is bursting with Pagan tradition in such a way that the subject of Babylon cannot be completely reckoned with until seeing how the self-proclaimed Mother Church of Rome so thoroughly corresponds to Babylon.
The Christian Facade This is where the Babylonian Legacy took on a most intriguing twist, as it came under the guise of Christianity, and we only need to look at solid facts to arrive at the most logical conclusion, and the last book of the Bible (Revelation) gives us great insight to this.
First off, we need to define some words to get a better understanding of the language rendered in Revelation, regarding Mystery Babylon. Throughout the scriptures, there has always been the allegorical theme of two kinds of women:
- a bride – which represents the faithful people of God
- a harlot – which represents idolatry and/or apostate church
Now idolatry is such an obvious and undeniable aspect of Catholicism, that the Catholic Catechism has simply done away with the second commandment, which forbids idols (see for yourself by comparing the 10 Commandments of the Bible with that of the Catholic Catechism). Point being, idolatry is a basic tenant of the Roman Church, which would deem it an apostate church, or in prophecy language, a harlot.
Below is just some of countless examples of Roman Catholic Sun-Worship. Catholicism is rife with sun symbols and rituals.
The Vatican is perhaps the most monumental tribute to the Babylonian Mysteries in the world. One example, in the very center of the plaza, is a towering monument that many call an obelisk, but is most definitely known by those initiated of the Mysteries as a phallic symbol of sexual intercourse between the Sun-God Baal and Moon-Goddess Ashtoreth. Bible students may also know this, as there are many biblical references to the same obscene images, which provoked God to anger.
From the center of the Asherah pole (which was taken from Egypt) you can see a sun wheel beaming out to the columns, each column representing other gods in classic Greco-Roman tradition, which are also represented in statues aligning the upper level.
Of course the Church would not call them gods, but Patron Saints. This is how the Roman Church syncretized pagan polytheism with ‘Paganized Christianity’. Such a concept of syncretism ignores the fundamental precept of being holy, or sanctified, which simply means ‘set apart’ – as in – being set apart from the corruption of the world, for God’s own special purpose.
Yet having employed such brazen syncretism, the Roman Kingdom contrived one grand Universal Church with its central government in Vatican City, Rome.
Revelation 17 tells of the impending judgement of ‘the great harlot’ – ‘who sits on many waters’ (global dominance), with whom the kings of the earth committed fornication (relating to idolatry as well as political power), and the inhabitants of the earth were made drunk with the wine of her fornication (maddening effects of idolatry on the masses).
The Apostle John, author of Revelation continues saying, “and I saw a women sitting on a scarlet beast (‘scarlet’ – a spin-off from the scarlet thread of redemption, and ‘beast’ being the prophesy language for ‘kingdom’ -and- remember Rome is that fourth and final successive kingdom which continues until the return of Christ, according to Daniel 7:19-26)
…which was full of the names of blasphemy (the blasphemies of so many popes is far too extensive to begin reciting, but see Speaking Great Words and Blasphemy ), having seven heads and ten horns (the Roman antichrist kingdom of Daniel 7 and Revelation 13).”
“The women was arrayed in purple & scarlet (traditional colors of the Roman Church) and was adorned with precious stones and pearls (detailing the outward beauty & splendor of the Roman Church), and having in her hand a golden cup (the Eucharists) full of abomination and the filthiness of her fornication (see The Eucharist Strikes the Gospel),
“And on her forehead a name written:
MYSTERY BABYLON THE GREAT
THE MOTHER OF HARLOTS
AND OF THE ABOMINATIONS
OF THE EARTH.”
The more one comes familiar with the characteristics of the Babylonian Mystery Religion, the easier it becomes to recognize in Catholicism. The Roman Church claiming to be the Mother Church has abundantly displayed her idolatrous nature, so we may logically deduce her an apostate church, and having the motherhood of that would make her the Mother of Idolatry, or in biblical terms, ’Mother of Harlots’.
“I saw the women drunk with the blood of the saints and with the blood of the martyrs of Jesus (no other entity comes even close to matching the bloodshed of the Roman Church towards any who were not in line with her ecclesiastical order – launching countless wars, crusades, persecutions, inquisitions, massacres, and tortures of unspeakable cruelty; both directly and indirectly, throughout the centuries — especially upon those faithful ones who sought guidance by none other than the actual teachings of Christ and the Apostles). – see sources at the end
And when I saw her, I marveled with great amazement (the recognition of both her outward beauty & splendor, as well as her inward blasphemous & cruel nature, overall greatness, and thoroughly pagan essence, which roots to the very original stock of the Babylonian Mystery Religion; now being the perfection of such a Luciferian System, all while under the guise of the supposed “True Church” – is something to marvel on with great amazement!)
However, this should not be too surprising for those well acquainted with the teachings of Christ and the Apostles, who warned us of deception within the Church of the most insidious nature.
“Beware of false prophets; They come to you in sheeps clothing, but inwardly they are ravenous wolves.” – Mathew 7:15
“…For such men are false apostles, deceitful workers, disguising themselves as apostles of Christ. No wonder, for even Satan disguises himself as an angel of light. Therefore it is not surprising if his servants also disguise themselves as servants of righteousness, whose end will be according to their deeds…” – 2nd Corinthians 11:13-15
This is not an outside enemy, but an inside one – leveraging fifth column tactics, so to conquer from within. Thus the arts of espionage and infiltration is the name of the game, as there is an abundance of warnings in the New Testament about this choice strategy employed against God’s true Church: Matthew 7:15, 7:22-23, 24:5, 24:11, 24:24, ~ Acts 20:29 ~ 2nd Corinthians 2:11, 11:13-15 ~ Galatians 1:6-9, 2:4 ~ 1st Peter 5:8 ~ 2nd Peter 2 ~ Jude
The text in Revelation continues with yet more details which correspond to the Roman Church, but we will not go further in that for this article. Hopefully this writeup with its supporting links with further detail & evidence – will help some see behind the veil of Mystery Babylon.
There is yet so much more detail involved, so many more aspects, literally layers upon layers of evidence that mount up in towering proportions (see related articles for much more), but for the main focus of this article on Mystery Babylon, we will cover just a few more of the many items to witness before closing:
Revelation 12:9 clearly reveals the Dragon is Satan; And displayed in the Vatican is Dragon Worship
Dagon – the Fish-God of the Phillistines
Pine Cone symbolism has deep occult meaning, stemming way back; another of countless pagan traditions carried on by the Roman Church.
As the antichrist figure is described in 2nd Thessalonians 2:7 as the mystery of lawlessness, the implication being that of the Babylonian Mysteries, which keep its essence from being recognized by the common folk; so will proceed unbeknownst – who opposes and exalts himself above all that is called God or that is worshiped, so that he sits as God in the Temple of God, showing himself that he is God. – see The Abomination of Desolation | Standing in the Holy Place
The Tower of Babel Reorganized
It is no wonder the Roman Church has been the driving force behind the Ecumenical/Unity Movement, calling the world to “Come” – just like the ancient Babylonians said, “Come” – let us build together a new thing – let us forget our differences and find our common ground so we may set a new order unto a utopian age – a new age of world peace and spiritual evolution from human unto deity…
Despite all the diversities of different people, languages and religions – the common threads of Babylon are uniting the world under the Papal Head, all of which are just pagan counterparts of the Roman Church, or children of the Great Mother of Harlots, Mystery Babylon.
“And I heard a voice coming from heaven saying, ‘Come out of her my people, lest you share in her sins, and lest you receive her plagues.'” – Revelation 18:4
