Babylon City of Tribulation

The Vatican, False Prophet, Mystery Religion and BABYLON (Neom): A ‘SCARLET’ colored ‘beast’ that ‘sits’ on seven (7) ‘scarlet and purple’ mountains in Saudi Arabia. ‘A End-Times Babylon Mystery REVEALED.’ It is a ‘false religion’ AND a ‘great city.’

Romans 10:14 “But how can they call on him to save them unless they believe in him? And how can they believe in him if they have never heard about him? And how can they hear about him unless someone tells them?”

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 practice, 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.” (Daniel 8:23-25)

Revelation 17:8-11 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. And here is the mind which hath wisdom. The seven heads are seven mountains, on which the woman sitteth. 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. And the beast that was, and is not, even he is the eighth, and is of the seven, and goeth into perdition.

‘Seven heads are seven mountains, on which the woman sitteth.’ = NEOM Babylon sits on the seven (7) tallest mountains in the Midian Mountain range in the Tabuk region of Saudi Arabia. Tallest mountain is Mount Sinai. These mountains are scarlet and purple colored due to volcanic origin and related minerals deposited in rock. NEOM is a $500 (5) billion technological/hedonistic paradise. No mention or acceptance of Christ.

The seven and eight kings are in reference to the genetic lineage (bottomless pit of evil) of the House of Saud. These are ALL the modern kings since the foundation of modern Saudi Arabia.

The Vatican, False Prophet, Mystery Religion and BABYLON (Neom): A ‘SCARLET’ colored ‘beast’ that ‘sits’ on seven (7) ‘scarlet and purple’ mountains in Saudi Arabia.

The False Prophet’s ‘MYSTERY RELIGION’ Began on February 4, 2019 (2019-2026= 7 years)

The “Document on Human Fraternity” blurs the distinction and changes the meaning of fraternity, extending it to the relationships between peoples of different religions, as if Muslims and Christians are “brothers and sisters” praying to the same God. Thd False prophet proclaim(ed)  “ALL religions are willed by God.”

Roman Catholicism legitimizes prayers to other deities or religious ideals, silencing the prophetic message of Scripture that we either serve the biblical God or idols. It fails to bear witness to the claims of Jesus Christ as the God-man who came to save those who believe in him, and instead changes the meaning of fraternity by stretching it indiscriminately to all humanity, rather than believers in Jesus only. In so doing, the tenets of the biblical faith are trampled on.

This is a further move away from biblical Christianity. Not being anchored in Scripture alone, not being committed to Christ alone, Roman Catholicism is anxious to extend its ever-expanding catholicity (i.e. all-encompassing embracement) in all directions, even those clearly contrary to the basics of the Christian faith.

Revelation 17:1-9. Mystery Religion in Babylon (NEOM). False religion. NEOM is the great city of many peoples and false (non-Christian) religions that sits on seven (7) mountains which is the center of spiritual humanism, abominations, fornications, blasphemies and filthiness. Religious coexistence and acceptance of all non-Christian religions, the brotherhood, fraternity of cultural inclusivity, secular peace, tolerance, rejection of extremism, religious dialogue, social goals, ecology and salvation by human efforts and agreements. A demonic mix of compromised, false Christianity (Catholicism) with moderate Islam that accepts other false religions like Hinduism, Buddhism, Humanism, (‘isms’). Everything but the true worship and acknowledgement of Christ and his offer of salvation through the shedding of his blood on the cross, and his forgiveness of our sins through his death and resurrection. Christ is completely ignored and rejected in the religious soup-from-hell or the mystery religion that is served in the great end-times restaurant known as Babylon (NEOM). False prophet proclaims “ALL religions are willed by God.”

Religious system. (Mystery Religion Babylon). (24X).  (Rev. 9:20, 9:21, 13:4, 13:8, 13:11, 13:12, 13:14, 13:15, 14:8, 14:9, 14:11, 16:2, 17:1, 17:2, 17:4, 17:5, 17:15, 17:16, 18:3, 18:4, 18:5, 18:9, 19:2, 19:20).

Religious System (24 references). Ultimately, it is the whore (Mystery Religion Babylon) who causes religious/spiritual fornication among everyone on earth. This is the most evil of all five (5) worldwide systems influenced by Satan. He does everything in his power to shield or hide the truth about the saving gospel of Jesus Christ. He wants to destroy all men, and send them to hell and the lake of fire. He wants to blaspheme God. He wants the world to worship only him. He wants to world think he is equal to God. All of these satanic goals are manifest in Mystery Religion Babylon. The other four world systems (economic, communication, political and military) just serve a means to an end. The end culminating in the direct (false) worship of Satan. The religious system of Babylon receives the most references by the world of God through His Holy Spirit. 2×12=24. Two (2) signifying God’s solid confirmation of a matter and twelve (12) denoting God’s divinely constituted organization either in heaven or on earth. Another way to think of twenty-four (24) is 4×6=24. Four (4) denoting God’s foursquareness of balance and symmetry, and of intelligent design multiplied by six (6) the evil number of man (mankind, beast, false prophet). Once again, God is in control and only lets this evil religious system exist only for a divinely determined time and purpose.

Four-fold Descriptions/Names of Mystery Religion Babylon:

  1. Mystery Babylon. (Rev. 17:5)
  2. woman. (6X). (Rev. 17:3, 17:4, 17:6, 17:7, 17:9, 17:18)
  3. whore. (4X). (Rev. 17:1, 17:15, 17:16, 19:2)
  4. Mother of Harlots. (Rev. 17:5)

Commentary: Two terms are capitalized, meaning a name or title (Mystery Babylon, Mother of Harlots). Two terms are not capitalized, meaning they are descriptive references (woman, whore). The descriptive use of woman is used six (6) times which denotes imperfection (less than godly), something not normal, monstrous, evil. Throughout the book of Revelation, anything being referenced exactly six (6) times is extremely evil, at its essence. God uses the number six (6) expressly for the purpose of representing anything evil. Lastly, all four (4) terms combined are used a total of exactly twelve (12) times throughout the book of Revelation. Twelve (12) constitutes God’s divine organization as applied to either heaven or earth. The use of woman and whore (lowercase, descriptive terms) are used in total ten (10) times. In this instance, ten (10) denotes God’s allness or completeness in a physical way, as to things pertaining on earth. Through God’s wisdom and intent, the use of woman and whore completely describe the earthly abomination that has the name Mystery Babylon and Mother of Harlots. Mystery Religion Babylon A.K.A. Mother of Harlots seduces men into worshipping false idols, devils, false doctrines of false religions … anything and everything other than worshipping the true and rightful one, God and Jesus Christ.

These terms have also been used when thinking about the actual city know as Babylon. However, the context in which these terms are used, specifically refers to the Mystery Religion of Babylon, and not the city directly. You will see elsewhere in this analysis, where names and descriptions are expressly used for the actual city of Babylon. Just as in the preceding analysis regarding the names/descriptions of the evil one, there are numbers within numbers, truth within truth, meaning within meaning, layers upon layers. God’s wisdom, preciseness and mathematical accuracy keeps revealing itself, over and over and over to those who will look and attempt to understand his ways. In a proverbial nutshell, the feminine use of whore, woman, harlot all suggest that the Mystery Religion of Babylon completely and totally lead men away from true worship, and lead men away from being made aware of their potential salvation and forgiveness of sins through Jesus Christ and the shedding of his blood. This has always been another one of Satan’s strategies over millennia, to do everything in his power to prevent mankind from ever learning about the salvation and forgiveness that Jesus Christ offers them.

Four-fold Reference to the Woman (Whore):

  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 judgement of the great whore that sitteth upon many waters: ” (Rev. 17:1). (Emphasis added).
  2. “And he saith unto me, The waters which thou sawest, where the whore sitteth, are peoples, and multitudes, and nations and tongues.” (Rev. 17:15). (Emphasis added).
  3. … “And the ten horns which thou sawests upon the beast, these shall hate the whore, and shall make her desolate and naked, and shall eat her flesh, and burn her with fire.” (Rev. 17:16). (Emphasis added).
  4. “For true and righteous are his judgements: for he hath judged the great whore, which did corrupt the earth with her fornication, and hath avenged the blood of his servents at her hand.” (Rev. 19:2). (Emphasis added).

Commentary: Two (2) references directly indicate that the whore is judged for courrupting the earth with false relgious doctrines (Mystery Religion Babylon), and she is judged for killing the servents of God by beheadings. The whore sits on all the peoples, multitudes, nations and tongues. Again, this is an anology for the false religious doctrines, of the tribulation period,  being widespread and encouraged around the world to all peoples, multitudes, nations and tongues (everyone, everywhere). The whore facilitates the adoption of these blasphemous, evil, man made religious doctrines and subsequent false religious worshipping. Babylon is described as a whore because she is tempting men away from the rightful and true worship of God (through his Son, Jesus Christ). Mankind is being tempted with a cheap, water-downed, hodge-podge, ‘do as thou wilst’, no strings attached kind of evil, religious soup from the smorgasbord of lies. Another terse analogy is that the whore tempts the world with a cornucopia of religious crap, that the world is deceived into thinking that it is right, good and healthy for them. Mankind consumes this evil religious soup and empties their bowl to the last drop. All of these expressions support the fact, that as a spiritual whore, Babylon tempts mankind with bad, evil and blasphemous alternatives to the true worship of Jesus Christ and God. Satan is deceivingly giving mankind what they want think is best for themselves, instead of men considereing what God rightfully offers them. They fall for the lie, instead of stand for the truth.

The third verse, 17:16, taken by itself will appear to be confusing because it sort of sits at odds with the other verses. However, this is not the case when taken into context with other verses, throughout Revelation that discuss Babylon and Mystery Religion Babylon. In a nutshell, the whore, both city of Babylon and the Mystery Religion of Babylon are ultimately destroyed. The physical city of Babylon is destroyed and split into three parts, in one hour by a massive earthquake, on The Great Day of the Lord. Mystery Religion Babylon is destroyed by the ten (10) kings/political leaders who form the axis behind the beast’s/antichrist’s power base. At the midpoint of the tribulation, Satan does away with all of these mystery, man-made religious doctrines and worship practices, to declare that the entire world now has to worship him directly as God. The ten (10) kings/political leaders force the destruction (eat her flesh, burn her with fire, hate her) of all of the wordwide, false religious worship, at the demand of the beast/antichrist.

This paves the way for the world to have only one object of worship, during the last 3 ½ years of the tribulation… Satan, who possesses the body of the antichrist/beast until Christ’s return on The Day of the Lord. The great deceiver, Satan/Devil, plays the world with the greatest spritual/religious ‘bait-n-switch’ of all time. Once he gets them in the door, luring them in with every religious/worshipping lie (Do as thou wilst) they want to hear, he gets them to sign on the dotted line by taking his Mark of identification and allegiance. Now he has them, bait-hook-line-sinker. Once they are hooked, he throws away the old bait (blasphemous religious doctrines and worship), and tells mankind that they now have to worship him, only him, directly. They can’t refuse, turn back, tear up the contract or deem that it is null and void. They ‘marked the deal’ with their signature, when they allowed the false prophet to brand them with the beast’s mark. It is a done deal. Signed in blood. They are now damned for eternity for believing in lies and corrupting themselves physically and spiritually. They no longer have the possibility of redemption or of being the imagers of God, but rather, are the physically and spiritually corrupted, polluted imagers of Satan. The physical and spirtual corruption is now permanent and for eternity. Satan owns them.

Foursome (double of a double); a double reference to whore plus a double reference to great whore.  Foursome (peoples, multitudes, nations, tongues). Foursome (desolate, naked, flesh, fire). Foursome (two references to seeing the whore, two references to where the whore sits). Thus, there are four – foursomes, another doubling of a double, this time of four (4) and not two (2). There is a double of seven’s (7), (seven angels and seven vials). The whore is one of the targets of the seven angels with the seven vials. Judgement is referenced three (3) times (denoting emphasis and intensity), judgement has two (2) descriptions (true and righteous). There are two (2) descriptions of what the whore does, first she corrupts the earth with her fornications (false religious doctrine/worship), and secondly she sheds the blood of Christ’s Saints (Tribulation Martyrs) via beheading, for their witnessing of Jesus Christ.

Seven-fold Description of Mystery Religion Babylon:

  1. … “And ther came one of the seven angels which had the seven vials, and talked with me, sayin unto me, Come hither; I will shew unto thess the judgement of the great whore that sitteth upon many waters:“  (Rev. 17:1). (Emphasis added).
  2. “Wih 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.“ (Rev. 17:2). (Emphasis added).
  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.“ (Rev. 17:3). (Emphasis added).
  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.” (Rev. 17:4). (Emphasis added).
  5. “And upon her forehead was a name written, MYSTERY BABYLON THE GREAT, THE MOTHER OF HARLOTS AND ABOMINATIONS OF THE EARTH.” (Rev. 17:5). (Emphasis added).
  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.“ (Rev. 17:6). (Emphasis added).
  7. “And the angel said unto me, Wherefore didst thou marvel? I will tell thee a mystery of the woman, and of the beast that carrieth her, which hath the seven heads and ten horns.“ (Rev. 17:7). (Emphasis added).

Commentary: This will be a long commentary, so hang-on and be patient while reading this. Before I start my commentary, it would be helpful to provide a few definitions and explanations regarding the terms used in these analogies and metaphors, and elsewhere in my analysis. Definition of a whore (most everyone will know immediately that this is a sexual reference, however, the term has more meaning than that); someone who is disparaging and offensive, a person who sacrifices personal principles or uses someone or something in a base or unworthy manner. To pursue a faithless, unworthy or idolatrous desire. The origins of old European languages suggest additional definitions; prostitute, harlot, one who desires, adulterers, fornicators, physical filth, slime, moral corruption, sin, bitch – of uncertain origin. These are obviously not kind or enduring words to describe someone (male or female). Bringing this back into context with the above verses in Revelation, just replace “faithful, true, just, holy worship of God and Jesus Christ” with the obiminations, lies, deceit, uncleaness, immorality of false and baseless Mystery Religion Worship in Babylon. The Mystery Religion of Babylon is founded on complete and total evil and deceit.

There is not an ounce of holy worship of God or Christ, whatsoever. It is a rancid porridge or jumbalaya of falsehoods, spiritual deception and idolotry all stirred together into something that is unidentifiable and has a horrible, stenchly smell, in other words, a sickening ‘mystery’.  What could it be? A blending of wordwide religions into one stinking, religious cauldron of evil worship; Buddhism, Toasim, Catholicism, Hinduism, False Christianity, Islam, Satanism, Idol (Baal, Sports, Celebrity) Worship, Luxury/Materialism Worship, Worship of Homosexuality, Gaism (earth, environment worship), paganism/witchcraft, ancestry worship, transhumanistic worship, aritificial intelligence worship, cannabis worship, drug worship, where does his end? It’s a ‘mystery.’ An extremely infamous santanist (who I will not name) perhaps summed it up by saying, “Do as thou wilst”.  No rules, no moral compass or limits, no self control or love for someone else (love yourself above all else), establish your own definition of truth and reality, ignore anything that threatens your ego or that can knock you off of your self-centered throne. Worship whatever makes you happy and allows you to coexist with your neighbors who are also worshipping strange things. There is no right or wrong, morality or immorality, holy or unholy worship. Relativism run amok. Hey, whatever makes your boat float (using an old figure of speech). You can see where I am going with this…

Therefore, Mystery Religion Babylon is a systematic, fully beast endorsed, satanically inspired, form of religion that allows mankind to worship anything and everyting, EXCEPT God and Jesus Christ. The false prophet makes sure of this, and this is one of his seven (7) forms of abominations. Not only is Mystery Religion Bablyon an unholy trainwreck mess, the false prophet also requires (forcibly), worship of the image of the beast/antichrist. This is virtually identical to the days when Christ had his ministry on earth. The Ceasars in Rome, demanded to be worshipped as God and had statues of themselves placed in many/most of the major cities throughout the Roman empire. Depending on the locality and local customs of an area, Rome also permitted idol and pagan worship, in one form or another. Thus there was an official, government sanctioned form of worship (Ceasar) and allowed forms of worship. In a number of cases, even the Jewish religion was allowed to coexist along with Ceasar worship, paganism, etc. This will undoubtedly be the case during the first 3 ½ years of the Tribulation. The antichrist does allow traditional Jewish rituals for sin atonement in their rebuilt temple, until the midpoint of the Tribulation.

At the mid-point of the Tribulation, the satanically possessed antichrist will cause the “Abomination of Desolution” to occur in the rebuilt Jewish temple. He forces the end of the jewish practice of animal sacrifices for the atonement of their sins and forcibly demands, that they (and the entire worldwide poplulation) worship him and his image exclusively. It becomes obvious that Satan’s plan allowed for the rebuilding of the Jewish temple, so he could put himself in it and demand to be worshipped as God. It is also at this time, that the antichrist literally destroys the woman, or Mystery Religion of Babylon, because she/it served his plan and purposes for the past 3 ½ years. Now, Satan, wants absolutely nothing competing with the world’s worship of him and his image. Since everyone already has his mark, and his mystery religion is dissolved, your worship now exclusively belongs to him. There is no escaping. He baited and switched you, you took the ‘bait, hook, link and sinker.’  He used the false, mystery religious system for his own purposes and gains,  and now it is time to discard the old religious system and force complete and total worship directly upon himself. (Rev. 17:16); “And the ten horns which thou sawest upon the beast, these shall hate the whore (mystery religion babylon), and shall make her desolate and naked, and shall eat her flesh, and burn her with fire”. (emphasis added).

The “great whore”, Mystery Religion Babylon exists all over the earth, on the “sea” of peoples, tongues, nations, kindreds and tribes.” The “kings of the earth” have fallen in love with this false religious system and fully endorse it (perhaps because they maintain their political power and status from the beast/antichrist for endorsing this system of religious worship in their countries). What king is going to say no to the worship of the antichrist’s image in his kingdom? It will come to the point that kings could care less what their citizens worship, as long as the kings maintain their status quo and power from the antichrist. The inhabitants of the earth are ‘drunk’ because of this system. Everyone in this religious system is enjoying the form of their individal worship to excess. As a result, the poison or ‘intoxication’ from excessive false worship makes them stumble and not able to walk straight or on stable ground or truth, spiritually speaking.

The Antichrist, NEOM BABYLON and Mystery Religion: The ‘Beast’s Seat’ that ‘sits’ on seven (7) ‘SCARLET’ AND ‘PURPLE’ Mountains. The ‘tribulation city’ (of the Beast’s Kingdom) and its idolatrous harlot of a ‘mysterious religion’.

Six-fold Reference to the Woman (as Babylon City and Mystery Religion Babylon):

  1. “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.” (Rev. 17:3). (emphasis added).
  2. …”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.” (Rev. 17:4). (emphasis added).
  3. … “And I saw the woman drunken with blood of the saints, and with the blood of the martyrs of Jesus: and when I saw her, I wondered with great admiration.” (Rev. 17:6). (emphasis added).
  4. … “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.” (Rev. 17:7). (emphasis added).
  5. … “And here is the mind which hath wisdom. The seven heads are seven mountains, on which the woman sitteth.” (Rev. 17:9). (emphasis added).
  6. … “And the woman which thou sawest is that great city, which reigneth over the kings of the earth.” (Rev. 17:18). (emphasis added).

Commentary: Six (6) references. Six represents imperfection, something not normal, monstrous, evil. The descriptive name of woman is used interchangeably as referring to both the physical Babylon City and the Mystery Religion of Babylon. Sometimes, the distinction is clear as to whether the reference is to the actual city or to the mystery religion that comes from the city. In other instances there is interchangeability in how the descriptive elements are used in referring to the city or the evil religion.

The six (6) verses are meant to be read in context with another. The woman is a great city, sitting on seven mountains and reigns over the kings of the earth (or, is the political capital of the beast’s empire). Initially, the evil religion that originates from this city is carried throughout the world (supported by) the ten kings who form the beast’s political and military backbone. The city (like a woman) is adorned with the most luxurious and expensive, precious stones, gold, finest linens, etc. The city and evil religion (like a whore) seduce men and kings from around the world to practice evil, blasphemous religious doctrines and false worship of evil things. The city and evil religion (like a whore) are drunk or intoxicated with the blood of those whom were martryed for believing in the gospel of Jesus Christ. They are intoxicated or drunk in the sense that they are exceedingly giddy in having defeated and killed those who do not subscribe to their evil doctrines. They feel vindicated, that their evil way is the right way. They are joyful and happy that their religious enemies (Christians) are literally being killed before there eyes for not converting to false religious dogma or blashpemous forms of worship. In a nutshell, the evil ones of Babylon City and those who practice Babylon’s Mystery Reliigon are absolutely giddy that blood (scarlet wine) is spilt from those they are successfully beheading (martyrs for Christ). The evil men feel that they are gaining victory over Christianity through the untold slaughter/beheading of many, many men who are converted by the gospel of Jesus Christ during the Tribulation Period.

Six-fold References to the Name Babylon as a City and as a Mystery Religion:

  1. … “And there followed another angel, saying, Babylon is fallen, is fallen, that great city, because she made all nations drink of the wine of the wrath of her fornication.” (Rev. 14:8). (Emphasis added).
  2. … “And the great city was divided into three parts, and the cities of the nations fell: and great Babylon came in remembrance before God, to give unto her the cup of the wine of the fierceness of his wrath.” (Rev. 16:19). (Emphasis added).
  3. … “And upon her forehead was a name written, MYSTERY BABYLON THE GREAT, THE MOTHER OF HARLOTS AND ABOMINATIONS OF THE EARTH.” (Rev. 17:5). (Emphasis added).
  4. “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.” (Rev. 18:2). (Emphasis added).
  5. “Standing afar off for the fear of her torment, saying, Alas, alas that great city Babylon, that mighty city! For in one hour is thy judgement come.” (Rev. 18:10). (Emphasis added).
  6. … “And a mighty angel took up a stone like a great millstone, and cast it into the sea, saying, Thus with violence shall that great city Babylon be thrown down, and shall be found no more at all.” (Rev. 18:21). (Emphasis added).

Commentary: Only six (6) references. Six represents imperfection, something not normal, monstrous, evil. The number of evil man. These six references are to a name or title, and are not descriptive, since Babylon is capitalized in every case. ‘That great city’ is used twice as a desciptive element. ‘the great’ is used three times as a desciptive element.

3X + 2X = 5X (the great + that geat city). Denotes the satanic influence behind and operating within the city.

3X + 2X +1X = 6X (the great + that great city + Babylon). Adding the name Babylon from the first verse or reference with the two desciptive elements indicates that Babylon is an extremely evil city of men. Six (6) references is the evil number representing man.

5X + 1X = 6X (Babylon City + Mystery Babylon). Babylon is referenced 5X as a city and once as Mystery Babylon. Mystery (Religion) Babylon is a spiritual or religious reference to the evil and false religion(s) eminating from the city causing spiritual fornication around the world. Depending on how the word Babylon is used, in context and with descriptive elements, it can mean either the actual, physical city of the Beast’s worldwide capital, or it can mean the false, evil, mystery religious fornication that is spewed forth from the city. Generically speaking, the Babylonian System is not mentioned in the Bible, however, it is used to descibe the entire Babylon footprint on the earth; the beast, the fasle prophet, the mark/name/number, the ten kings (political, military backbone for the beast), the physical city of Babylon, the false, fornication of evil religion and spirituality, the satanic influence behind the beast, the false prophet, Babylon City and Mystery Religion Babylon. The Babylon System also includes the worldwide systems behind the beast’s empire that allow him to govern the earth; electronic commerce, communications, military, political, and religious. Babylon and Mystery Religion Babylon are further described as:

  1. She made all nations drink of the wine of the wrath of her fornication.
  2. God remembers the evil caused by her and pours out the “wine of the fierceness of his wrath” for her to drink. In turn, she is divided into three parts and the cities of the world are leveled by the greatest, most powerful earthquake in the history of mankind “as long as men have walked the earth.”
  3. She is described also as being the ”mother or harlots and abominations of the earth.” Taken into context with MYSTERY, this refers to the spiritual fornication that is generated from the city and propigated around the world.
  4. The physical city becomes the ”habitation of devils, the hold of every kind of foul spirit, and the cage of every unclean and hateful bird.”  These descriptive elements suggest that physical Babylon City will attract anything and everything that is evil, foul, devilish, unclean and hateful. Both of spirits and of men.
  5. Physical Babylon City is literally destroyed in one hour. The smoke and fire of her destruction is seen so far away that men (merchansts, kings) stand back or away, least they be consumed by her destruction. They see Babylon City’s destruction and are afraid to come near it because they fear that the destruction might come upon them. Everyone who stands afar off watching the aftermath of Babylon City’s destruction marvel at her destruction and the immensity of it. They grew rich from selling their merchandise and luxuries to the evil people of Babylon City. The kings of the world maintained their political power under the beast by committing spiritual mystery religion fornication with the evil religious doctrine(s) the city provided the world. Everyone who ‘benefitted’ from their relationship with the evil city and its evil religious dogma is now distraught because their fortunes and benefits have been lost. They never thought that such a ‘great city’ could fall or be destroyed, let alone in under  just one hour. They are scared for themselves and won’t come near the city.
  6. Lastly, an extremely strong angel casts or throws a millstone (heavy object) into the sea indicating that Babylon City will likewise be cast aside with violence and found no more. Babylon City was not unlike a millstone that hung around the necks of men, causing them to sink to the depths of hell. Symbolically, as the millstone sinks to the bottom of the ocean and will never be found again, so it will be with Babylon City. It is violently destroyed and cast aside, never to be found again.

Once again, Six (6) detailed descriptions of Babylon and Mystery Religion Babylon.  Six represents imperfection, something not normal, monstrous, evil. The number of evil man.

Commentary: Descriptive references (not name or title conventions). Four of the evil references are related to a female (queen, no widow, woman, whore). The remaining references are to an evil city. We know these references are evil because there are six (6) of them and they describe the evil, physical city of Babylon City and those who dwell within it.

Seven-fold References to the great city of Babylon:

  1. … “And there followed another angel, saying, Babylon is fallen, is fallen, that great city, because she made all nations drink of the wine of the wrath of her fornication.” (Rev. 14:8). (Emphasis added).
  2. … “And the woman which thou sawest is that great city, which reigneth over the kings of the earth.” (Rev. 17:18). (Emphasis added).

  7. “And a mighty angel took up a stone like a great millstone, and cast it into the sea, saying, Thus with violence shall that great city Babylon be thrown down, and shall be found no more at all.” (Rev. 18:21). (Emphasis added).

Commentary:great city” is a descriptive reference for the physical city of Babylon. This is not a descriptive reference to Mystery Religion Babylon. Babylon City is described as “great” (not in a positive sense, but in a negative sense) because of what the city does throughout the earth during the Tribulation. It serves as a home-base for the Mystery Religion of Babylon. It serves as the capital for the Babylon kingdom. The city is decked out in massive, earthly wealth and material splendor. The glory of Jesus Christ or God is not found anywhere in Babylon City.  Worship of Jesus Christ and God is not found anywhere in the city. The city is home to all sorts of foul, evil/unclean spirits and likewise men. As far as the values of evil men, the great city of Babylon has it all. Everything evil can be found in Babylon City, the “great city.” Nonetheless, Babylon City is crushed within one hour during the Day of the Lord’s return. A massive, worldwide eqrthquake splits this city into three parts. The destruction so great and consuming, that smoke of her burning can be seen many miles away at sea. Businessmen and merchants don’t want to go anywhere near the “great city” because they are afraid that they might receive the same fate due to association. They lament, because their best customer just got hammered and their gravy train has ended. Thus, their profits and gain have so ended. So much for the “great city.” It was quickly thrown away and destroyed just like a giant mill-stone thrown into the sea. Never to be found again.

The 10 ‘HORNS’ (Powers/Strengths) of the BEAST’S EMPIRE:

Six-fold Reference to 10 Evil Horns/Crowns (Kings) of the Beast’s Empire:

  1. … “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.” (Rev. 12:3). (Emphasis added).
  2. … “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.” (Rev. 13:1). (Emphasis added).
  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.” (Rev. 17:3). (Emphasis added).
  4. … “And the angel said unto me, Wherefore didst thou marvel? I will tell thee the mystery of the woman and beast that carrieth her, which hat the seven heads and ten horns.” (Rev. 17:7). (Emphasis added).
  5. … “And the ten horns which thou sawest are ten kings, which have received no kingdom as yet; but receive power of kings one hour with the beast.” (Rev. 17:12). (Emphasis added).
  6. “And the ten horns which thou sawest upon the beast, these shall hate the whore, and shall make her desolate and naked, and shall eat her flesh, and burn her with fire.” (Rev. 17:16). (Emphasis added).

Commentary: These 6 (six) verses describe the political, military and religious backbone of the beast’s evil empire. The 10 (ten) kings are a consortium of political leaders that collectively give up their political and military sovereignty to the beast/antichrist. In exchange, he grants them “power as kings for one hour.” They will come from what is represented as a revived Roman empire (geographically, politically and militarily). The above reference in verse 17:12-14 indicates that these 10 (ten) political leaders act in a collective unison (with one mind), and give up their political and military might (power and strength) to the beast (based upon the will of God). This verse also continues on to indicate that these kings “for one hour” are active military participants against Jesus Christ on the Lord’s Day at the battle of Armageddon. Two verses reference the influence that these 10 (ten) kings have on Mystery Religion Babylon. Verse 17:7 indicates that these kings act in collective unison and purpose in supporting (and enforcing) the worldwide acceptance of the whore, Mystery Religion Babylon. They are the ‘muscle of the means’ or the part of the beast that supports (carries) the domination of the mystery religion worldwide. The last reference, verses 17:16-17, indicate that midway through the Tribulation, these 10 (ten) kings turn on and destroy the whore, the Mystery Religion of Babylon.

Why would these 10 (ten) kings, who have worked for 3 ½ years to build up and support the whore, the worldwide mystery religion system, suddenly turn on her to “make her desolate and naked and shall eat her flesh and burn her with fire?”  The answer lies in the religious or spiritual ‘bait-n-switch’ that Satan pulls off on evil mankind. At the beginning of the Tribulation, to gain easy acceptance and domination over the world’s peoples, Satan allows them to worship anything and everything (but God and Jesus Christ) and to also enforce his worship through the beast/antichrist and false prophet. The worship of anything and everything (but God and Jesus Christ) is known as Mystery Religion Babylon, which also includes Satanic worship. Halfway (3 ½ years) into the Tribulation, Satan physically indwells the beast and commits the Abomination of Desolation in the rebuilt Jewish Temple. The satanically indwelt beast places himself in the holiest part of the rebuilt temple and declares himself to be God and demands to be worshipped directly as such, under the pain of death and beheading of not doing so. As a result, men who have taken the mark of the beast and perhaps have been worshipping idols of gold or silver, have no choice but to give up their mystery religion and are forced to worship Satan/beast exclusively.

Most of those deceived men who have already been worshipping the beast and his image will have no problem in continuing to worship the satanically indwelt beast. Their worship will just be more of the same, except that Satan is now the direct object or recipient of their worship. Conversely, those men who were actively participating in the mystery religion of worshipping whatever they wanted, now have to turn their worship exclusively to Satan. Thus, Satan has effectively pulled-off a successful religious ‘bait-n-switch’ of historical proportions. Evil men thought they could get away with chasing whatever they wanted, and now, Satan/beast has a firm grasp of them ‘bait-hook-line-sinker.’ Evil men have to worship him, they are forced to worship him under threat of death. They have physically and satanically defiled themselves through taking the beast’s mark (or name, number) and thus, they have given themselves over totally, completely and whole heartedly to the beast’s kingdom and system. Now, the whole mystery religion system has been destroyed “burned with fire, flesh consumed,” and replaced with the singular, exclusive worship of Satan. The ten (10) kings helped carry the whore throughout the whole world, and conversely, helped destroy her when the time was right and dictated by Satan. Just as the beast and false prophet are puppets of Satan, the 10 (ten) kings are the ‘puppet thugs’ or ‘heavy muscle goons’ that carry the beast’s system and mystery religion (for 3 ½ years) throughout the world.

Ten (10) is a doubling of Satan’s evil number of 5 (five), (5×2=10). In the context of God’s divine mathematics, these “kings for an hour with the beast” represent a double portion of Satanic evil or worldly strength. 10 (ten) also represents a doubling of the satanically empowered beast’s kingdom, or a doubling of any kind of Satan’s influence.

Twelve-fold Reference to the Beast’s Evil Political and Religious System or Kingdom:

  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.” (Rev. 13:1). (Emphasis added).
  2. … “And the beast which I saw was like unto a leopard, and his feet of a bear, and his mouth of a lion: and the dragon gave him his power, and his seat, and great authority.” (Rev. 13:2). (Emphasis added).
  3. … “And it was given unto him to make war with the saints, and to overcome them: and power was given him over all kindreds, and tongues, and nations.” (Rev. 13:7). (Emphasis added).
  4. … “And the fifth angel poured out his vial upon the seat of the beast; and his kingdom was full of darkness; and they gnawed their tongues for pain,” (Rev. 16:10). (Emphasis added).
  5. … “For they are the spirits of devils working miracles, which go forth unto the kings of the world, to gather them to the battle of that great day of God Almighty.” (Rev. 16:14). (Emphasis added).
  6. “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.” (Rev. 17:3). (Emphasis added).
  7. … “And the angel said unto me, Wherefore didst thou marvel? I will tell thee the mystery of the woman, and the beast that carrieth her, which hath the seven heads and ten horns.” (Rev. 17:7). (Emphasis added).
  8. … “And the ten horns which thou sawest are ten kings, which have received no kingdom as yet; but receive power as kings one hour with the beast.” (Rev. 17:12). (Emphasis added).
  9. … “These have one mind, and shall give their power and strength unto the beast.” (Rev. 17:13). (Emphasis added).
  10. … “And the ten horns which thou sawest upon the beast, these shall hate the whore, and shall make her desolate and naked, and shall eat her flesh, and burn here with fire.” (Rev. 17:16). (Emphasis added).
  11. … “For God hath put in their hearts to fulfill his will, and to agree, and give their kingdom unto the beast, until the words of God shall be fulfilled.” (Rev. 17:17). (Emphasis added).
  12. … “And the woman which thou sawest is that great city, which reigneth over the kings of the earth.” (Rev. 17:18). (Emphasis added).

Commentary: What denotes a political rule or system? References to a kingdom, power, seat, authority, kings, power over nations, etc. Considered and understood in totality, these verses describe the formation of the beast’s Babylonian system and kingdom. They describe where the beast/antichrist/man of sin gets his evil power, seat and authority (Satan gives this to him directly). Satan has the power to do exactly this, in Matthew 4:8-9, Satan tempts Jesus with; “Again, the devil taketh him up into an exceeding high mountain, and sheweth him all the kingdoms of the world, and the glory of them; And saith unto him, All these things I will give thee, if thou wilt fall down and worship me.” (Emphasis added). Power is given to the beast/antichrist/man of sin over all kindreds, tongues and nations. The ten horns are ten political leaders, who in exchange for giving up their geographical political sovereignty, receive the designation as kings from the beast, while he remains in power (four an hour). God puts it into their minds to collectively give control of their national sovereignty over to the beast. As such, the beast gains a formidable political and military support system to carry out his rule. Politically, it appears that Babylon City is the beast’s capital city and supports the man made religious heartbeat of the evil mystery religion (Babylon Mystery Religion – Whore). At the midpoint in the Tribulation, the ten (10) kings destroy Mystery Religion Babylon to make way for the sole worship of Satan through his indwelt possession of the beast/antichrist/man of sin. In Rev. verse 17:14, scripture also indicates that these ten (10) kings will also participate at the battle of Armageddon against Christ.

But how can they call on him (Jesus Christ) to save them unless they believe in him (Jesus Christ)? And how can they believe in him (Jesus Christ) if they have never heard about him (Jesus Christ)? And how can they hear about him (Jesus Christ) unless someone tells them?” —Romans 10:14
