From previoius information I have shared with you that Satan was known as the "SUN-God" I find it interesting that their is s statue of Apolos known as the SUN GOD in a very "religious" place and I will reveal that place at the end of this series.
So if this information that I have studied and placed before all of you is true, how does it effect our walk with God today? I am going to reveal that to you now. If you look in Revelation chapter 17 we see in verse 2 it says,
"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."
Which makes it clear that the kings of the earth committed fornication. Which would be different than the "inhabitants". We know that purple in the Bible represents royalty, so we see in verse 3 and 4 it says,
"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 title that was upon this "beings" head was as verse 5 says,
"And upon her forehead [was] a name written, MYSTERY, BABYLON THE GREAT, THE MOTHER OF HARLOTS AND ABOMINATIONS OF THE EARTH."
We then read in verse 6 it says,
"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."
Revelation 17:7-9 says,
"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. 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."
Here we see that those whose names were not written in the book of life from the foundations of the world will marvel at this beast because they were fooled into the lies and trickery and blaspheme by this beast led astray from the one and only Lord Jesus Christ. So you ask how and why would this involve you? As you read further into Revelation 17
we see in vs.10-14 it says,
"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. 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. These shall make war with the Lamb, and the Lamb shall overcome them: for he is Lord of lords, and King of kings: and they that are with him [are] called, and chosen, and faithful."
This is where it is going to get a little tricky, because as much prayer and study as I have put into this I want to be able to explain it in a way that is simple to understand.
Ok, the kings of the earth were the fallen angels and those who resided here on earth were made drunk with "their fornication". This "whore" was known as the great mystery of Babylon and abominations of the earth. Now how could this whore, be drunk with the blood of the saints, lest as it does say in 17 verses 7-9 states that those whose names were not written in the lambs books of life will stand in wonder of the beast. As the anti-christ rises during the last days, even before that time of the seven years of tribulation arises their will be a great falling away of the faith according to scripture. However, we must look more closely at how this falling away will occur, or has it already begun? Also, why would the Lord refer to the great mystery of Babylon when speaking about the fall of man in the end times? It is because both times it will be a fall that has been created by manipulation of God's creation through the influence of the use of the spirits that are "wandering stars" from the physical bodies which were destroyed of the generations of Nephilim.
At this time instead of applying bits and pieces that I wanted you to know I am including this website for you to read all the information on it because it is important for each of us to know (http://www.historicist.com/articles2/peterrome.htm)
What we must be aware of is that there are seven churches addressed in the book of Revelation for rebuke and reproving. Revelation 17 speaks of the seven kings and how five have fallen already. See if you remember throughout the Bible the word teaches that many false prophets will arise and many in "sheep clothing". So we are warned that many will rise up in the "faith" teaching lies. How much more rebellious can Satan and the fallen angels get then to find a way to maneuver into the church? Witchcraft in the church; is it possible?
On that note I would like to lead you to another website to read the information here.
Jeremiah 7:15 says,
"And I will cast you out of my sight, as I have cast out all your brethren, [even] the whole seed of Ephraim."
"And of the ten horns that [were] in his head, and [of] the other which came up, and before whom three fell; even [of] that horn that had eyes, and a mouth that spake very great things, whose look [was] more stout than his fellows. I beheld, and the same horn made war with the saints, and prevailed against them;"
Jeremiah 25:12 says,
"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."
Remember what it said in the book of Enoch?
"And when their sons have slain one another, and they have seen the destruction of their beloved ones, bind them fast for seventy generations in the valleys of the earth, till the day of their judgement and of their consummation, till the judgement that is 13 for ever and ever is consummated. In those days they shall be led off to the abyss of fire: and 14 to the torment and the prison in which they shall be confined for ever."
Revelation chapter 18 is an intense chapter to read in an of itself it reveals many things. I hope you have read both of the above web sites that I placed links to.
Revelation 18:2-3 says,
"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. 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."
Now, when you read further down into the latter part of Revelation 18 in vs.23-24 it says,
"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. And in her was found the blood of prophets, and of saints, and of all that were slain upon the earth."
I have used these two verses distinctly before, but I did not know God was going to bring me right back to these scriptures again. You see the church is known as the bride and Jesus speaks through His bride here on earth or at least He tries. Unfortunately a lot of the Christian teachings as well as other spiritual beliefs have become tainted with many "false teachings" and "misconceptions" and "Judgments" and "Money Changing" and "Religion" and "Animosity" and "Jealousy" and "Competition" and every other influence of spiritual attack that Satan has uses for Eons to separate God's chosen people from Him. That is why in Revelation here it says that "thy merchants" were the "great men of the earth". Not only that but by THEIR WITCHCRAFT ALL NATIONS were deceived. In this deception we see is found the blood of prophets, and of saints. So how if we are the prophets and the saints and saved by the blood of Jesus will our blood be found by the "great men of the earth decieving us by becoming wolves in sheep clothing through the manipulation of witchcraft or rebellion?
First and foremost we must recognize that "Christianity" as a whole is one "Faith" yet brothers fight each other constantly on a daily/hourly basis on what beliefs should be taught and what should not. But one thing they never bring up is if we should celebrate Christmas when it is a Pagan holiday that was created to worship the SUN GOD!!! That is how the tree originated. Or do we hear them discussing whether or not we should celebrate Easter which was also a Pagan holiday in honor of Eastre known as the fertility goddess, hence the symbol of the bunny rabbit where they would give away decorated eggs some with gold at their orgy festivals.
Not sure if any of you know who the above picture is supposed to be or where this statue resides so please allow me to tell you. This is a statue of the "Sun-God" known as Apollo. This statue is not in a museum, or on the street. This statue resides in the Vatican Temple. I think one might find it interesting then to learn that Mary in the Catholic faith is called the "queen of Heaven". Yet we see in
Jeremiah 7:18 it says,
"The children gather wood, and the fathers kindle the fire, and the women knead their dough, to make cakes to the queen of heaven, and to pour out drink offerings unto other gods, that they may provoke me to anger."
Most professing catholics and protestants today are innocent of covert intentions of the churches they attend, but they are guilty of being 'Self-Centered', and Spiritually lazy. Therefore they place their faith and trust in satan's Christopagan churches where he is raising up false teachers and false prophets to mislead all that he can out of the presence of God. They go to mass or church meetings and drink in the false concept of easy salvation mixed with naturally pleasing pagan traditions like Xmas. They are either totally unaware of what is taking place around them, or they just as the majority of the land has done, have sold out to "traditional salvation" going with the flow of what everyone else is doing while God calls us out to study to show ourselves approved so that we aren't destroyed for lack of knowledge.
Many people who don't agree with the Catholic faith think all Catholics will go to hell, and vice versa with every other form of faith or denominational belief one to another. You want to know what I think? I think many will be surprised by the "Whore" who has used witchcraft and deception throughout all seven churches that if we don't WAKE up to what is going on wash our eyes out wash our ears out and seek a true heart after the one and only God many will stand before the Lord on judgment day thinking they will pass right through, when they were never truly serving God they were serving doctrine and the teachings of men.
I did not write this to condemn anyone, I wrote this an eyeopener to things you may have not known. I know it has opened my eyes up to many things. God does not look at the outward appearance of things, He looks at our hearts. Let us all seek out His truth in our hearts.
