The Expansion of the Satanic Babylonian Religion  

 This is Semiramis holding Tammuz

From the start the Babylonian religion was Satanic and it took on the name Baal, from the name Baalzebub (a name for Satan). Though Baal is primarily the worship of Satan and his angels, it also by proxy has progressed to the worship of gods and goddesses (idols)—but primarily goddesses.

I suspect that this emphasis on goddesses was invented by Semiramis because of her female partiality; for she, as I mentioned earlier, was the keeper of prostitutes. Indeed, Semiramis herself was called the virgin mother, the queen of heaven, and was looked on as a goddess.

Hence, this Babylonian religion began with Semiramis as the queen of heaven and was idolized in many statues as the virgin mother holding her baby Tammuz. Later, when the people were scattered into other lands and took on many different languages (as a result of God’s judgment on them), this same queen of heaven, together with her baby, took on other names. For instance, in Egypt their names became Isis and Horus; in Greece, Aphrodite and Eros; and in Italy it was Venus and Cupid.14

 

The Babylonian religion in Old and New Testament times. This evil Babylonian religion persisted in the world for many years virtually unabated, until finally, God called Abraham to leave his country (in Ur of the Chaldeans, Gen. 11:28) and his family and to go to the land of Canaan (Gen. 12:5). There Abraham came to believe in the true God. Thus from Abraham came the true religion of God, which was propagated by the Jewish race, through the Jewish patriots (Abraham, Isaac and Jacob).

But they endured constant conflict with the pervasive and all-encompassing Babylonian religion, and eventually the Jewish nation was overcome by these pagans and was the cause of their captivity in 586 B. C.

In God’s providence, however, their captivity became their salvation, and from Abraham to Christ (about 2000 years), though the vast majority were Babylonian idolaters, a remnant believed in God.

When Christ came into the world, Babylonian idol worship was everywhere, and though the apostles and early Christians persisted in spreading the gospel to the ends of the earth, they were constantly confronted by it. Indeed the evil Babylonian religion did not die.

A Disruption of the New World Order

 

In the last two years, since Donald Trump became the U.S. President, we have seen in America, and also throughout the World, a disruption in the New World Order. Why? Because President Trump has declared that he is not the President of the world, but the President of America. Hence, all of his policies are for American interests only. His theme says it all—Make America Great Again (MAGA).

But the most exciting development happening in the world—for those who are interested in Bible Prophecy and  are excited for the return of Jesus Christ—is that Donald Trump and his nationalistic agenda is definitely accelerating Bible prophecy. We see this mainly because of the recent alignment of Russia, Turkey and Iran. I think we will also be seeing this alignment accelerated more as Trump seems to be more and more interested in pulling our troops out of Syria and Afghanistan. We will see.

On the negative side, though President Trump seems to be doing so much good for America, and also for the cause of good and fairness around the world, demonic disruption is on the rise—particularly in America. It seems that the hatred for Trump and for his America-first policies is increasing every day. Socialists and Trump haters are popping out everywhere. Their obsession to take down Trump is their priority. And they are persistent at it (at endless investigations and ranting and vulgar language), and it seems that they will continue it even if it destroys the country. It seems that Donald Trump is somewhat the instigator in all this hatred—though we really can’t blame him for it. I think God is using him to stir the American pot, to reveal the evil in America.

It is unbelievable what some are saying. I think we have come to the point where what Isaiah said is now true—that people “are calling evil good and good evil” (Is. 5:20).

We in America are now in the middle of a humanitarian and security crisis on our southern border. President Trump wants to secure our boarder with a wall (and tighter security) to keep our people safe from drugs and crime. But most Democrats are against it. They say that a wall is immoral. They seem to want open borders—to let people in. Hard to believe what is happening! And many want to abolish ICE—our border patrol police!

What will happen to America??  It almost seems that we are being overrun. And so many don’t care!

I pray every day for the President and that we will get our southern boarder secure—with a strong wall. Will you pray with me?

However, let the will of God be done. I thank God that we as believers are secure in Him, that our salvation and eternal life with Jesus is assured. “Nothing will separate us from the Love of God, which is in Christ Jesus our Lord” (Romans 8:39).

The Origin of Babylonian Religion

I have been studying and writing about the future false religious system, which will take over the world sometime after the rapture of the church. It is described in the bible, in Revelation 17 and 18, as the great harlot, the woman, and Mystery Babylon the Great. It is that religious system that will at first team up with the Antichrist and will have as its goal to deceive all the world and to martyr any and all Christians.

In order to understand this false system it is necessary to take a good look at ancient Babylon, for the future false religion will have its roots in this ancient Babylonian religion. As you may know, Babylon began with Nimrod at the tower of Babel.

Nimrod and the beginnings of Babylon. Nimrod was a grandson of Ham. You remember Ham. He was one of the sons of Noah, the one that exposed Noah’s shame and then rebelled against God. Well Nimrod was a rebel just like his grandfather, or maybe worse. Instead of obeying God’s command to spread out and multiply, he gathered like-minded people around him, and they proceeded to build a city and a huge tower. This tower, we suppose, was a temple or a rally center for his followers.  They called the city and tower Bab-El, which means, “the gate of God.” However, after God came down to them and in his judgment confused their language (apparently, He divided the common language of the people into many different languages), the people were forced to stop building the city and the tower and were scattered over the face of the earth. Thus from then on the city and the tower was called Babel, or Babylon, meaning confusion.

Semiramis and Tammuz, the beginning of the Babylonian religion. According to legends, the evil Babylonian mystery religion began through Nimrod’s wife Semiramis, probably during the initial stages of the building of the city and the tower. In fact, this new religion may be one of the things that helped to unify the people, and thus, to keep the building project going.

As the stories go, while Nimrod was at war and was gathering his followers, he came into a house of prostitution one day, and there he met Semiramis who was the keeper of the house. During the early stages of their relationship Nimrod’s power was the most dominant, but as his new wife began to conjure up her new religion, and as the people were drawn to it, she was clearly more influential and powerful.

The new religion she invented was a corruption of the true creation story. With the devil’s help, she rewrote the story making Satan the Lord of the universe and the serpent the creator of men and the promiser that a child would be born of a divine virgin mother (herself).

Well, what do you know; Semiramis bore a son Tammuz, and she lied and said that she bore him as a virgin, which would make her the promised virgin mother and Tammuz the promised child and divine Savior. She also said that Tammuz was conceived by the sun god.

Furthermore, since Satan was to be the Lord of the universe, Semiramis declared that he and all the fallen angels were to be worshiped by proxy through emperors, priests, idols, and goddesses. Thus began the practice of idol worship. .

Now if you want to know how the story of Semiramis ends (according to the legends), here is the short version. Since it seemed that the queen Semiramis bore Nimrod an illegitimate son—for she apparently was still a prostitute—he threatened to dethrone her. However, the queen would not allow it, and she devised a plot to kill him. She not only brutally had him killed, she also installed her son Tammuz as the new king, but she shrewdly appointed herself as the regent ruler for the next 42 years. When Tammuz got tired of waiting and demanded to be installed as king, his mother conspired to kill him in the same brutal way she killed Nimrod. Fortunately for Tammuz, he got wind of the plot and slayed his mother with his own sword.

How Syria Pullout May Be Prophetical

With the Syria pullout, are we seeing biblical prophecy unfold before our very eyes?

Recently President Trump announced that he is returning all of our troops from Syria home. I’m not sure how I feel about this move. I do think that in this day of evil, war is always necessary and that we need to be always fighting against evil on all sides in order to preserve peace.

However, according Washington, Jefferson and Eisenhower, we need to stay away from entangling alliances.

It is our true policy to steer clear of permanent alliances with any portion of the foreign world.” Washington’s farewell address

Peace, commerce, and honest friendship with all nations, entangling alliances with none. Thomas Jefferson, https://video.foxnews.com/v/5982750061001/

We must guard against the acquisition of unwarranted influence, whether sought or unsought, by the military industrial complex. Eisenhower, https://video.foxnews.com/v/5982750061001/

These words from our wise founders seem to be quite contrary to what General Mattis said in his resignation letter about the need for alliances.

…One core belief I have always held is that our strength as a nation is inextricably linked to the strength of our unique and comprehensive system of alliances and partnerships. While the US remains the indispensable nation in the free world, we cannot protect our interests or serve that role effectively without maintaining strong alliances and showing respect to those allies…

Well, whatever happens, I continue to pray for the president that he will be led of the Lord for the good of good people and for the Lord’s will. Also, as is the title of this blog, the pullout may be in the Lord’ providence to bring about his ultimate will, according to biblical prophecy.

 

 How Syria Pullout May Be Prophetical

In the bible, in the prophetical writings, the United States is not mentioned. But much is said about the Middle East countries. Whether it is good policy or not, with the United States out of the way, this will catapult the world ever closer to the next major war, called the war of Gog and Magog (Ezekiel 38-39). When you see these countries come against Israel, hang on to your hats and look toward heaven!

How People Are Being Drawn Into Demonic Evils

 

As I stated in earlier posts, people are being drawn away from the truth by deceitful spirits and teachings of demons (1 Tim. 4:1-3). And though demons are involved, we must place the blame fully on the people themselves; for more and more they will not endure (tolerate) sound doctrine and will refuse to listen to true, biblical preaching. They would rather listen to teachers that will tell them just what they want to hear—things that appeal to their flesh (2 Tim. 4:3-4). Thus they are choosing to reject the truth, and then in the process are giving themselves over to deceitful spirits and demons, which will aid them in their own corruption.

Indeed, in these last days many are being corrupted by evil (2 Tim. 3:1-6). This, I think, will be especially evident in the days, months, and years after the rapture when Christian influence will be mysteriously missing—though the Holy Spirit will still be active, convicting any who are open to Him.

This evil corruption of mankind is, and will be, the devil’s preparation for his new false world religion. The world’s leaders, it seems, will be the first to be corrupted, and led by the devil, into the harlot system (Rev. 12:12). Then, with their insistence and example, they will cause the world to follow them.

Hence, all the world will be swept into the false and perverse teachings and rituals of the harlot, by which they will become addicted to whatever practices she offers—as if they were drugged. Indeed, it may be that the religious rituals will involve actual drugs as well as immoral activities—things Satan will use to keep people under his spell, to follow him and the beast to their ultimate destruction.

Revelation 17:4 speaks of the harlot’s glamour and attractiveness. Hence, just as a prostitute will adorn herself to attract her victims and lure them into her bed, so this new religion with its worship will be very alluring, especially to young people.

I think, sadly, we may be seeing some of this same allurement in the worship services of some of our churches today—with the beat, the repetition and the new age style of music. Though we insist that it is Christian music, I wonder if Satan might even now be beginning to use it for his own purpose. It is just possible that the coming harlot system of worship will be similar in style and may even appear to be Christian worship, except that there will probably be evil things added to it that will cause the worshiper’s mind and spirit to be turned to evil. Also, we must remember that after the rapture, at least at first, there won’t be any Christians left. Thus worship will not be according to the Spirit, rather it will be according to their own perverse and misguided ideas of what worship is.

Now I am proposing these ideas because of what we see in Revelation 17:4. The harlot is not only adorned attractively, but she has in her hand “a gold cup full of abomination and of the unclean things of her immorality.” Thus this new religion and this new age worship will involve immoral and evil rituals—all designed to allure and trap its victims.

The Guilty Will Not Go Unpunished

Prayer A to Z

Recently I listened to a speech by Dan Bongino. He was talking about his book Spygate. Near the end of his speech he mentioned that he didn’t think the key players of this scandal (that has been going on now for the last two years) will get anything (will get any punishment). He said that there is no will to prosecute Democrats, because the media is full of them. He said that some of them will be in trouble, but not the key political players, like Hilary Clinton, James Clapper, John Brennan, Susan Rice, and Samantha Powers. The good news, he said, is that we will see cosmic justice. That eventually the truth will come out in the history books.

Well, that gave me some comfort, because it has been grieving me to see these people getting off scott-free.

But really, when you think about it in the…

Six Factors That Will Contribute To the Official Start of the New Global Religion – Part 2

 

I wrote last time, “I’m sure you are already aware of the fact that false teachers and teaching are already here. But these days are just a prelude to the harlot system written about in Revelation… these days, and even many days after the rapture, will be used as a preparation for what is to come, that is, to set up the new harlot system.  And so that possess the question: just when will that new false harlot religion begin?”

In my last blog I gave the following two points on when I think the new global religion will begin:

  1. I think it will begin just after the Ezekiel 39 and 39 war.
  2. I think the new religion will begin as soon as the harlot and the beast discover that they can work together.

Here are the last four factors:

 3. I think the new religion will begin as soon as its system, with all its rituals, are in place. The new religious system, called the harlot, I think will be orchestrated mainly by the leaders of the EU. When their evil Babylonian system, with all its evil rituals, are in place—ready to influence and deceive the world—then and only then will it start.

 4. I think it will begin as soon as all nations and all religions are united and committed to the new world religion. Revelation 17:1 tells us that the great harlot “sits on many waters.” Here “many water” means many nations. So it means that the harlot will be in domination over all the nations of the earth, with all its different religions. Thus since we know that this domination will occur, we must conclude that the new system cannot start until all nations and all religions are ready and willing to come together and give into the harlot. We don’t know exactly how this willingness will occur, but we may conclude that it will be either by force or by allurement—or by a combination of the two.

Then there is the question of how this unity will be possible. I mean, how will it be possible for all religions of the world to unite together as one? The only answer I suggest is that the power of Satan will make it happen.

 5. I think it will start as soon as all world leaders and all people are absorbed into it. Revelation 17:2 says “With whom the kings of the earth committed acts of immorality, and those who dwell on the earth were made drunk with the wine of her immorality.” As wine and sexual immorality implies here, all the world’s leaders and people will be drugged and addicted by the influence of the harlot. Thus they will be attracted by and absorbed into this new religion.

When this drawing of all people begins to happen, the leaders of the harlot system will see it and will know that its official start is imminent.

6. I think the new world religion will officially start with the commencement of three other major event: (1) the reunification of the Roman Empire with its ten nation confederacy; (2) the signing of a seven-year peace covenant with Israel; and (3) with a new Jewish temple.

For years, leading up to this point, there will be a huge buildup of evil; and here, at this exact point of time, with these other important events, and with a grand announcement, the new religion will officially start. I think this moment will be seen by the world as a great and wonderful time in history, a time of new beginnings. But, as we know, the seven year Tribulation will be right around the corner.
