The Babylonian Roots of Catholicism
“And upon her forehead was a name written MYSTERY BABYLON THE GREAT, THE MOTHER OF HARLOTS AND ABOMINATIONS OF THE EARTH.” These words, written by John in Revelation 17:5, are given to describe the woman who is symbolic of the one world church system set up by the Antichrist. The fact that she is of the Antichrist is obvious. First, she is said to be the great whore in verse 1 of chapter 17. The true churches of God are known as the Bride of Christ. “Babylon is designated a harlot because of her unfaithfulness to Christ the bridegroom through her friendship and unholy alliance with the kings and inhabitants of the earth.”(1) Thus, because of the designation of “whore”, it is obvious that the woman is a false religious system. Secondly, it is obvious that the system is of Antichrist because of the description of the woman in verse six. She is said to be “drunk with the blood of the saints, and with the blood of the martyrs.” Thus, it is seen that the false religious system of Antichrist has been one that has persecuted the Christians down through the centuries. It is this type of religious system that is called Babylon The Great.
What is meant by the name, Babylon The Great? Some would say that this refers to the city in which this wicked ecclesiastical system shall be erected. However, it should be obvious from verse six that this is not the correct interpretation. The city of Babylon by the Euphrates river has never been drunk with the blood of the saints. In fact, quite contrary, Babylon is nothing more than stones and rubble piled up. It has been completely destroyed, and has not through history lived up to the definition of verse six. Also, it is interesting to note that the inscription on the forehead of the woman referred to MYSTERY, BABYLON THE GREAT. This indicates that the name Babylon should not be taken literally, but rather that it is a secret name which stands for something else.(2) It is commonly believed that the name of Babylon thus refers to the ecclesiastical system of Babylonian-ism founded in Genesis chapter ten, which has existed in one form or another up until this present age and will continue until the return of Christ.
The religious system known as Babylonian-ism received its name from the city in which it was founded: Babylon on the plain of Shinar. The founder of this city was Nimrod. Nimrod appears for only a brief time in the Bible. His name is mentioned only in Genesis chapter ten, verses 8-10. Verse eight teaches that Nimrod was begotten “by Cush, and that he was a mighty one in the earth.” Verse nine expands to tell that he was a mighty hunter before the Lord. On first glance this description appears innocent enough, but a closer examination will show the true nature of this individual. First of all, the name Nimrod comes from the Hebrew verb “nimrode” which is translated, “let us revolt.” This in itself indicates the type of individual that Nimrod was. He is referred to as a “mighty one.” This phrase comes from the Hebrew word, “gilor” which means “tyrant.” So it becomes evident that Nimrod was not just a powerful man on the earth at that time. Rather he was a tyrannical leader of men. The phrase “a mighty hunter before the Lord” has interesting connotations as well. First of all, it is interesting to question why the hunting exploits of one individual would make the Lord take special notice of him. The Hebrew phrase “liphne YAHWEH”, which can be rendered “in the estimation of JEHOVAH”, carries with it the idea of a superlative, but “a superlative that bears the meaning that even YAHWEH was impressed by this hunter’s prowess and achievements.”(4) There must have been more to Nimrod’s hunting than would be evidenced in the life of any other hunter. Secondly, the word translated “before” in Genesis 10:9 carries with it a hostile meaning, and could probably be translated “against”. Putting this all together, it becomes plain that it was not wild beasts that Nimrod was hunting, but men. Having hunted them he would enslave them and have a tyrannical hold over them. And all this was done in direct opposition to the Lord. The Jewish Encyclopaedia sums up the life of Nimrod by referring to him as “he who made all the people rebellious against God.”(5)

THE POPES AND 666
Published on March 11, 2014
I’ve had this information on the website for many years. In fact, even before building the site I was sharing this on the street in tracts that I shared with others. I feel that the timing is right for such a video as this because of what we see in the music industry and their open allegiance to Satan. Now that most people know that hand sign does in fact mean 666, they will now be able to better understand the truth about the Pope and his prophesied allegiance.
THE POPE AND 666
JOHN PAUL II
Revelation 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:  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.  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.  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:
The UNADULTRATED word of God is very clear on worshiping graven images:
Thou shalt have no other gods before me. Thou shalt not make unto thee any graven image, or any likeness of any thing that is in heaven above, or that is in the earth beneath, or that is in the water under the earth: Thou shalt not bow down thyself to them, nor serve them: for I the LORD thy God am a jealous God, visiting the iniquity of the fathers upon the children unto the third and fourth generation of them that hate me; [Exodus 20:3-5]
Continuing Revelation 17:5 And upon her forehead was a name written, MYSTERY, BABYLON THE GREAT, THE MOTHER OF HARLOTS AND ABOMINATIONS OF THE EARTH.
As we are nearing the close of the age, it is prudent upon us to expose the work of Satan in his quest to have as many followers as he can for he knows his time is short. We learned that the pope is now actively recruiting congregations with unbiblical theology, as the following article posted a few days ago disclosed: LUTHER’S PROTEST IS OVER? CATHOLICS AND CHARISMATICS LOOK TO NEW ECUMENICAL UNITY
Grace be unto you, and peace, from God our Father, and from the Lord Jesus Christ. I thank my God always on your behalf, for the grace of God which is given you by Jesus Christ; That in every thing ye are enriched by him, in all utterance, and in all knowledge; Even as the testimony of Christ was confirmed in you: So that ye come behind in no gift; waiting for the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ: Who shall also confirm you unto the end, that ye may be blameless in the day of our Lord Jesus Christ. [1Co 1:3-8]
