The New World Order is not new. In fact it has existed for thousands of years. Mystery Babylon Rising traces the history of the New World Order from the Tower of Babel to the Present day in a unique fashion that integrates the Biblical narrative with historical data. A quite insighful read for understanding the world we live in today.

Mystery Babylon is introduced to us in Rev 17-18. Her name is Mystery, so she is hidden from public view. The text says that she is the city that rules over the kings of the earth. Mystery Babylon is, then, a secret community that rules over the governments of the earth.
Mystery Babylon is presented as a woman.
Religious and cultural systems are often presented in Scripture in the image of women. Revelation pictures the church as the bride of Christ. (This connection is explicitly defined in Eph 5:22-32.) Hosea defines Israel in terms of the bride of the Lord.
False religious systems are depicted as wicked women. In Ezekiel 16 compares Jerusalem with Samaria and Sodom as wicked women who were unfaithful to God. The parable of the woman in the basket in Zechariah 5 describes a woman called wickedness who rules from Shinar (Babylon). Revelation describes Mystery Babylon as the mother of every abomination.
Mystery Babylon is presented as the mother of all harlots and abominations of the earth.
What does this mean that she is mothers of all harlots and abominations. There are two distinct ideas here: she is mother of both harlots and also mother of abominations.
If harlotry is used as a symbol of false religious systems, then mother of all harlots means that mystery Babylon is the mother or source of all false religions and false philosophies ever created. If Mystery Babylon is the mother of all false religions, then she has existed from very ancient times to the present day.
Mystery Babylon, then, is a secret community based on false religion that rules over the governments and nations of the world. This book will, by weaving together both Biblical narrative and historical investigation together, trace the development and philosophies of Mystery Babylon from its origins to the present time. This book will also demonstrate how all of the major philosophies of the present age find their origins in Mystery Babylon.
Babel was the location of the original Mystery cult. When God confused the languages, the people scattered in different groups according to their language. In the evolution of the religions of the world, there emerged two forces. The first was the primeval knowledge of the true God handed down from Adam through Noah. The second was that of Mystery Babylon. The makeup of the newly formed religions would be a product of which impulse was stronger.
As with any organized movement, it may be safely assumed that there are group and individuals with higher levels of commitment who are inclined to lead the movement while the rest are simply following the trends. After the confusion of languages at Babel, language-groups averaging a higher level of commitment to the Mystery Babylon cult would develop religious traditions with more similarity to the original cult. It would also follow that groups settling in close geographical proximity to Babel would have more similarity to the original cult.
All seven heads of the beast-system of organized rebellion against God are influenced by Babylonian or Greek world-views, so I will give a little more attention to these two cosmologies. The extreme degree of similarity between Greek creation myths and Babylonian creation myths indicate that the Greeks borrowed from the Babylonians. Except for name changes and minor differences they are the same story. The Greek culture was influenced by the Phrygians who had links to the Assyrians, cousins to the Babylonians. This is the likely explanation for the similarities in the creation myths of the Greeks and the Babylonians.
The Babylonian creation myth begins with chaos1.The original god-pair, Apsu and Tiamat, evolved out of chaos and begat other gods and goddesses by mixing their waters. Below is a table of their descendents according to The Enuma Elish. It appears that the evolutionary processes of Babylonian religion are often accompanied by male-female pairings. Early on a sky-father/earth-mother pairings were credited as responsible for creative activities.
|Apsu (sweet primeval waters)||+ Tiamat (salt primeval waters)
|Lahmu (“slime,””mud”)||+ Lahamu (perhaps both mean “silt”?)
|Anshar (“whole sky”)||+ Kishar (“whole earth”–“horizon”?)
|Anu (“sky”)||+ Ki|
|Nudimmud (“image fashioner”–another name for Ea or Enki)
|Marduk – Nanna||Ningal – “great queen”|
|Inanna – “Queen of Heaven”|
The godhead in Babylonian religion does not begin with an eternally, self-existent God as in Hebrew cosmology. There are two major wars among the Babylonian gods that result in establishing the godhead in Babylonian religion. The fourth generation of gods and goddesses revolt against their father and kill him. Anu and his children, Ea and Enlil, overthrow Apsu and Tiamat. Enlil was later displaced with Marduk as the chief god of the Babylonian pantheon.
Greek creation myth follows a similar path2. The Greek creation story also involves two wars. Out of chaos were birthed Gaia (earth) and Uranus (sky). They brought forth Cronus who swallows up his children as they were being born. The youngest child, Zeus, escapes this fate. Later his wife induces Cronus to vomit up the other children who join Zeus in deposing their father. Zeus, like Marduk, becomes king of the gods and brings order out of chaos.
The evolution of the godhead out of chaos is also a feature of Egyptian creation myths3
An almost universal feature of not only Babylonian and Greek religion, but also of all ancient religions4, is the mother goddess cult5. There would be worship of a mother goddess who was symbolic of the earth. A common thread in these stories is that she has an affair with a consort (usually a vegetation god) that ends tragically. She would then try to get him back from the dead which would result in his coming back to life for six months out of the year. This cycle of death and life of the vegetation god/consort resulted in the cycle of the seasons.
This story would be emulated in a ritual called the Heiros Gamos6. A temple priestess, representing the mother goddess, would have sex with the king, who would act as king-priest. It was believed that through this ritual the king was actually having sex with the mother goddess and that this would result in fruitfulness among crops and in wombs, both animal and human.
When Revelation asserts that Mystery Babylon is having sex with the kings of the earth, it is referring to the practice of Heiros Gamos that was a common feature in mother goddess worship. From the viewpoint of the Lord, however, this great mother is “The mother of all harlots and abominations of the earth.”
In the initial stage of the development of the Mystery Babylon religion, the emphasis was on the stories and the rituals. As human civilization became more complex and advanced, two factors would intervene to shift the emphasis from rituals towards an emphasis on the core philosophy: the rise of multi-nation empires and the advent of philosophy.
As empires became bigger and more technologically advanced, the result was that peoples of multiple nations became joined politically and economically. As a result, people of different nations began to compare the stories of their religions. People began to notice that there were many similarities in their stories. In fact, as early as Herodotus, the Greeks realized that they and the Babylonians worshipped the same gods and goddesses, only by different names.
The advent of philosophy, particularly western philosophy via the Greeks, saw a new approach to religious thinking. People began to use logic and critical thinking to distill a world-view or cosmology from the stories. The following elements can be distilled from the creation myths spawned by Mystery Babylon:
The primal gods emerged through evolutionary processes out of chaos.
The primal gods were overthrown by their descendants by revolutionaries who then create the physical universe.
One of these gods is a great mother goddess who has sex with a consort whose dies and is raised repeatedly to power the seasons.
Economic productivity is the result of sexual intercourse between the government and nature as emulation of the sex act between the mother goddess and her consort.
With the advent of philosophy, attempts began to be made to justify religious propositions through reason. In the last chapter, I wrote about the original Babylonian mystery religion. Both the Babylonian and Greek religions have similar creation stories, and therefore similar cosmology.
Babylonian cosmology directly predominated the first four heads of the beast system: Old Babylon, Assyria, New Babylon, and Persia. When the Persian Empire fell to the Greek empire of Alexander the Great, Greek cosmology, inherited from Babylon through the Phrygians, then pre-dominated the beast system. The predominance of Greek culture in nations that influenced the development of both western civilization and the rising influence of the Middle East opened the door for Greek philosophy to influence religions in many parts of the world. Because the cosmology of ancient Greek mystery religions is identical to the Babylonian mystery, it was easy for Babylonian Mystery cult to import into Greek dominions.
Three major philosophies developed during the latter part of the ancient times and the middle ages that have distilled the worldview of the ancient Babylonian mysteries: Gnosticism, Hermeticism, and Neo-Platonism. The common thread in all three is the view that the creator emanated from the source of all reality.
Neo-Platonism consists of various interpretations of the teachings of Plato. Plato taught that particular instances possessing an attribute possesses the attribute because the attribute exist as a universal or class. Particular trees exist because there must is a universal tree which lends the attribute to the instance. Plato believed these universal forms had real existence independently of the particular instances.
Neo-Platonism teaches that individual minds and souls are but instances of a universal mind and universal soul. These instances are sometimes referred as reflections or actualizations.
“While Plotinus suggests that the One subsists by thinking itself as itself, the Intellect subsists through thinking itself as other, and therefore becomes divided within itself: this act of division within the Intellect is the production of Being, which is the very principle of expression or discursivity (Ennead V.1.7). For this reason, the Intellect stands as Plotinus’ sole First Principle. At this point, the thinking or contemplation of the Intellect is divided up and ordered into thoughts, each of them subsisting in and for themselves, as autonomous reflections of the dunamis of the One. These are the Forms (eidê), and out of their inert unity there arises the Soul, whose task it is to think these Forms discursively and creatively, and to thereby produce or create a concrete, living expression of the divine Intellect. This activity of the Soul results in the production of numerous individual souls: living actualizations of the possibilities inherent in the Forms.”7
Gnosticism teaches that the universe was created by a rogue emanation from the source of reality. According to The Gnosis Archive “One of the aeonial beings who bears the name Sophia (“Wisdom”) is of great importance to the Gnostic world view. In the course of her journeyings, Sophia came to emanate from her own being a flawed consciousness, a being who became the creator of the material and psychic cosmos, all of which he created in the image of his own flaw. This being, unaware of his origins, imagined himself to be the ultimate and absolute God”8
This rogue emanation created the physical universe which is devoid of the perfection of this source of all. Gnosticism teaches that enlightenment or gnosis of this source is the essence of salvation. This gnosis is possible in only certain individuals who have the divine spark and only by denying the physical nature
Hermeticism is very similar to Gnosticism. Hermeticism also teaches that an emanation separated itself from the source of being. This emanation evolved mind and created the physical universe. (See ch 5 for a more detailed description of Hermeticism)
Emanation is the common thread of each of these views. Emanationism teaches that from a singularity evolves a personal-rational godhead that then brings forth the universe, usually in a gradual, evolutionary process. In the beginning, there were no categories, but only a monistic oneness. According to emanationism, these categories evolved and from them emanated the universe in its current form
In contrast to the familiar Judaeo-Christian monotheistic view, according to which the whole universe just appears ready- made through Divine Fiat (or command), and the materialistic view which simply ignores first principles, Emanationism explains creation as a gradual process of emanation and descent from a transcendental Absolute to mundane reality. Thus there is no Creator God standing apart from, even if intimately connected with, the universe as in monotheism; but rather a series of stages of down-grading of Consciousness Being, by means of which the Absolute principle actually becomes the multiplicity of entities and objects
It has been suggested (by Professor Huston Smith, in his book Forgotten Truth)
that the basic cosmology, arrived at independently by many different philosophies and spiritual traditions, shows Reality to be divided into a very minimum of four levels or planes of reality: the Infinite or Absolute (the topic of Monism), the Celestial or Divine, the Intermediate or Psychic (with which occultism deals), and the Terrestrial or Physical (the level considered by Materialism). Each of these can in turn be sub-divided
Thus, applying this in an emanationist perspective, the process of creation, in the emanationist cosmogony and cosmology, proceeds through a number of distinct stages. First the Absolute produces the Spiritual reality (or “God”). The Spiritual reality in turn produces the Psychic reality. And finally, the Psychic reality produces the Physical reality; the material world. Each reality constitutes a specific stage of manifestation9
Emanationism, then, is an evolutionary explanation and an evolutionary cosmology. According to emanationism, god is the product of evolutionary forces, and the divine principle emanates throughout the universe through evolution. Evolution is god in emanationism.
There are two conclusions that follow if evolution is god. First nature, or part of nature, is god as evolutionary processes are natural. The second is that the focal point of natural evolution is social evolution, and the focal point of social evolution is the rise of the state. These philosophical conclusions are closely connected to the ancient Heiros Gamos ritual of the mother goddess cult where the state has sex with nature. The logical conclusion of emanationism is to make the state god on earth.
There is nothing new about the New World Order. It is in fact an ancient conspiracy. The roots of today’s New World Order go back to the Tower of Babel. The Bible refers to this conspiracy by the names Mystery Babylon and the Mystery of Iniquity.
The Greek word translated mystery (musterion) often was used in reference to secret societies. The Bible also speaks of the mystery of iniquity in reference to the rise of the coming world dictator, commonly called the Antichrist. There is a secret society of evil that gives rise to the Antichrist. The only way inside these secret societies is to be initiated into the mysteries.
When Noah left the ark in the mountains of Ararat, the human race began by repopulating Turkey. As the populations grew, the human race moved westward (“From the east”) along the Tigris-Euphrates River valley until they reached the northern part of the Mesopotamian valley. From there they migrated towards Sumer (Shinar). There they built the Tower of Babel to promote the religious-political system of Mystery Babylon. Most scholars believe that the Tower of Babel was a Ziggurat- a religious temple10. The Genesis account of this tower was that it was done to glorify man.
“And the whole earth was of one language, and of one speech. And it came to pass, as they journeyed from the east, that they found a plain in the land of Shinar; and they dwelt there. And they said one to another, Go to, let us make brick, and burn them thoroughly. And they had brick for stone, and slime had they for mortar. And they said, Go to, let us build us a city and a tower, whose top may reach unto heaven; and let us make us a name, lest we be scattered abroad upon the face of the whole earth. And the LORD came down to see the city and the tower, which the children of men builded.
“And the LORD said, Behold, the people is one, and they have all one language; and this they begin to do: and now nothing will be restrained from them, which they have imagined to do. Go to, let us go down, and there confound their language, that they may not understand one another’s speech.” Genesis 11:1-7 KJV
The purpose of setting up the tower was to prevent people from being scattered across the face of the earth. This was not intended to keep people in the valley but to insure that, as the human race expanded and filled the earth, that they would not split into different groups but would be united under the religious and political power of the Babel system. This religious-political power was man’s attempt to set themselves up as god on earth. What does a tower have to do with this? They thought they could access the divine power by building a physical tower that could reach unto heaven.
They were also setting a global identity for all people. They wanted people to define themselves in terms of that tower and the religious-political system it represents. Even today people define themselves and their allegiance in terms of names. National names like “American” and “German” define national allegiances. Name is often synonymous with authority. We can see this in Esther 8:8-10. Even today, the name carries authority in seals and signatures on legal documents. Setting up the Tower of Babel as a global religious-political identity was in effect a scheme to put everyone in the world under the authority of this system.
They were attempting to set up man as God through this religious- political system and put every man, woman, and child on earth in subject to this government that claimed to be God. The goal of this is that each individual would identify himself or herself as belonging to Mystery Babylon rather than the true Creator.
At the heart of ancient Babylonian mystery religion is a ritual that the ancient Greeks referred to as heiros gamos11. This ritual was believed to help increase fertility among people, crops, and animals. A temple priestess, who represented the great mother goddess, would have sex with the king. The king represented either the father sky-god or some agricultural god. The head of state, then, has intercourse with the head of nature. Socialism and Fascism are nothing new, but have their roots in ancient Babylonian religion. Ancient Babylonians believed that the answer of all problems lie in state action. According to the heiros gamos ritual, the key to economic productivity was the state having sexual intercourse with nature.
God saw this as rebellion against Him and specifically as an attempt by man to set up this system, and specifically the state, as God. There was a conversation within the Trinity about this. God said “Behold, the people are one, and they have all one language; and this they begin to do: and now nothing will be restrained from them, which they have imagined to do.” He responded by confusing their language, forcing a division to prevent the creation of this global idolatry and global dictatorship.
The confusion of languages, however, did not kill the cult. This secret cult spread wherever the different nations of people went and evolved to fit the differing cultures.
These secret societies exerted influence in the empires they were in. Operatives of Mystery Babylon had key positions in government, culture and business in these empires. As one empire was conquered by another in the succession of the seven heads of the beast many operatives of Mystery Babylon simply rolled over their operations into the new empire and gained key positions there. Thus the cult of Mystery Babylon is the continuity or the spirit behind all seven of the empire-heads of the Beast. The Bible also refers to this common spirit as the mystery of iniquity. God spoke to Paul during the time of the Roman Empire about the Mystery of Iniquity. We can read this in 2 Thessalonians 2:1-8.
“Now we beseech you, brethren, by the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ, and by our gathering together unto him, That ye be not soon shaken in mind, or be troubled, neither by spirit, nor by word, nor by letter as from us, as that the day of Christ is at hand. Let no man deceive you by any means: for that day shall not come, except there come a falling away first, and that man of sin be revealed, the son of perdition; Who opposeth and exalteth himself above all that is called God, or that is worshipped; so that he as God sitteth in the temple of God, shewing himself that he is God.
“Remember ye not, that, when I was yet with you, I told you these things? And now ye know what withholdeth that he might be revealed in his time. For the mystery of iniquity doth already work: only he who now letteth will let, until he be taken out of the way. And then shall that Wicked be revealed, whom the Lord shall consume with the spirit of his mouth, and shall destroy with the brightness of his coming.” 2 Thessalonians 2:1-8 KJV
What this passage is saying is that the forces that bring forth the Antichrist are already at work as a musterion or secret cult. They were at work from Babel to the current New World Order.
There are two images in Scripture that refer to the succession of world empires that leads to the final beast system. The first is in Daniel 2 where an image of a statue is portrayed and the second is in Rev 17 where a beast with seven heads is pictured. These two pictures have several similarities. Both pictures indicate
- that these empires are only manifestations of a system of world power that Revelation calls the beast
- Each empire is the head of the system at a given period of time
- Each empire is conquered by the empire that will succeed them as head of the beast system, in chronological order, continuing the beast-system
- The final empire is a ten-nation empire
- This ten-nation empire is destroyed by Jesus Christ the Messiah personally and when that happens the entire beast-system dies.
The table below illustrates the various forms of the system in history. The image portrayed in Daniel begins with Nebuchadnezzar’s time forward while the image in Rev begins at Babel forward.
|Rev 17 seven heads||Daniel 2 statue|
|Old Babylon (Babel)|
|New Babylon||New Babylon|
The first six empires are straight-forward. In Rev 17 John is told that five are fallen and one is in power in his time. In John’s time the Old Babylonian Empire, the Assyrian Empire, the New Babylonian Empire, the Persian Empire, and the Grecian Empire had already fallen and the Roman Empire was in power. The failure of some students of prophecy to realize that there were two Babylonian empires that were interrupted by Assyria have resulted in some including Egypt in this list. But Egypt does not fit in the succession. Egypt did not fall to Assyria as it would if it were in the succession.
The Identity of the Seventh Empire If the empires fall in succession to their successors then the identity of the seventh empire can be determined. According to Rev 17 Rome was in power at the time of the writing of Revelation. Rome is therefore the key to identifying the seventh empire. In AD 395 Rome split into two empires. The fall of the western half in AD 476 does not necessarily mean the fall of the Roman Empire. There was no clear successor to the western half (without violating consistency of language i. e. a religious empire-Catholicism- replacing a literal political one as the first six were). The eastern half, however, was clearly succeeded by a literal empire. The Ottoman Empire replaced the Roman Empire as the head of the Beast system in 1453 AD and was in power until 1918. The Ottoman Empire is the seventh beast.
The Eighth Empire is the beast. We are given two clues that identify the eighth beast:
And the beast that was, and is not, even he is the eighth, and is of the seven, and goeth into perdition. Rev 17:11
The phrase was, and is not means that the eighth beast was an empire that was in power prior to the Roman Empire but had fallen at the time that Rome became the head of the beast. This eliminates the possibility of a revived Roman Empire being the head of the beast. Which empire is it? The answer is so simple that many of the most brilliant Bible scholars keep missing it. It is Babylon. Rev 17 is about a woman named Babylon riding a beast. The beast is also named Babylon. Babylon is the original head of the statue in Dan 2 and therefore the ultimate head and name of the entire system in addition to being the first and third heads.
Jeremiah 50-51,which predicts the final destruction of Babylon, clearly portrays the battle as an end-times battle and Babylon as the dominant power on earth. Babylon is called “the hammer of the whole earth“(50:23 Also read 51:7,25,41,49). Babylon is often interpreted symbolically in this passage, however Babylon is clearly equated with the land of Chaldea. This clearly identifies literal Babylon as the final beast.
The phrase is of the seven indicates that the beast is a composite of the previous seven. Babylon is not limited to Iraq. Babylon 3 is a composite of all previous empire and includes a revived Roman Empire-European Union.
After the fall of the Ottoman Empire the process of succession is more detailed. After the fall of the Ottoman Empire there is a woman who rides the beast. The woman, Mystery Babylon, is the immediate successor to the Ottoman Empire. At first she controls the beast. Then there are ten kings who hate the woman and shift the balance of power towards the antichrist.
Babylonian Religion Universal throughout Near East
The native religion of Babel was indigenous to the first three empires: The Old Babylonian, Assyrian, and Neo-Babylonian. The condition of being adjacent neighborhoods resulted in these areas having the same the same world-view, the same religious stories, and the same gods. The chief difference is name changes due to language differences.
There also appears to be contact with the Hittite Empire from the beginning. The Cappadocian Tablets12, for example, dates from about 3000 BC and contains Assyrian, Babylonian and Hittite names. This early affinity can be explained by the fact that the human race re-started after the Great Flood in Eastern Turkey in the mountains of Ararat. The Genesis account tells us that the human race moved east towards Shinar (Sumer). In Turkey, in the areas that became the Hittite empire, the first settlements were created. One of the oldest known settlements in the world, called Catal Hayuk13 has a temple dedicated to mother goddess worship14. As the human race grew, the overflow migrated east towards Babylon where the tower of Babel was constructed.
There are several results of this connection between the Hittites and the Babylonians, One that they both had the religion of Mystery Babylon from the beginning. While the Hittites had only a brief appearance in history, they were instrumental in spreading the religious cosmology of Mystery Babylon to Greece.
“One of their enduring impacts on history is their influence on the Greeks of Ionia through Phrygians and Lydians [ex. Hittite goddess Kubaba became great Phrygian goddess Cybele (“Great Mother”) the worship of whom spread to Rome]. “The Hittites borrowed several features of Mesopotamian civilization, including cuneiform, legal principles, and literary and art forms (Perry 5th, 23). They would form a cultural bridge between Mesopotamia and the Greeks: ‘They also played an important role in transmitting the ancient cultures of Mesopotamia and Egypt to the Greeks, who lived on their frontiers’ (Kagan, 22). “Although the Hittite empire did not survive the transition from the Bronze to the Iron Age, it served as a vital cultural transmitter to the west. The Hittites passed on compelling legends and seem to have had a marked impact on both Greek myth and Roman views of the universe. Whether through encounters in western Anatolia or indirectly via the Phoenicians, the Greeks acquired key elements of their mythology from Hittite sources.”15
The Infiltration of Egypt by Mystery Babylon
At the dawn of civilization in Egypt, the Nile river valley was a melting pot of various peoples who were attracted to the abundance of the Nile valley. There were several waves of immigration from Babylonian sources that shaped Egyptian civilization. Historian Donald McKenzie describes this
“The land was a veritable hive of industry. Food was plentiful, for the harvests yielded corn, and huntsmen found wild animals more numerous as beasts of prey were driven from their lairs and lessened in number. Great galleys were built to trade in the Mediterranean, and each was propelled by sixty oarsmen. The ships of other peoples also visited the ports of Egypt, probably from Crete and the Syrian coast, and caravans crossed the frontier going eastward and north, while alien traders entered the land and abode in it. Battle conflicts with men of various races were also depicted on the pottery, for there was much warfare from time to time.
“Growing communities with Babylonian beliefs effected settlements in the north. These were the sun worshippers whose religion ultimately gained ascendancy all over Egypt. From primitive Pithom (house of Tum) they may have passed to On (Heliopolis), which became sacred to Ra-Tum and was the capital of a province and probably, for a period, of the kingdom of Lower Egypt.
“A masterful people also appeared in Upper Egypt. They came from or through Arabia, and had absorbed a culture from a remote civilization, which cannot be located, in common with the early Babylonians. Crossing the lower end of the Red Sea, they entered the verdurous valley of the Nile over a direct desert route, or through the highlands of Abyssinia. They were armed with weapons of copper, and effected their earliest settlement, it would appear, at Edfu. Then by gradual conquest they welded together the various tribes, extending their sway over an ever-increasing area. New and improved methods of agriculture were introduced. Canals were constructed for purposes of irrigation. The people increased in number and prosperity, and law and order was firmly established in the land.
“These invaders were sun worshippers of the Horus-hawk cult, but they also embraced the religious beliefs of the people with whom they mingled, including the worship of the corn god Osiris.”16
From Assyria/Babylon to Persia and Greece
When the Persia Empire conquered Babylon, there was still cultural continuity. The Babylonian community, and its religious system, flourished during Persian occupation.
Hellenization – gateway from Babylon to Greece
Alexander the Great led Greece to conquer much territory, including the area formerly occupied by the Babylonian Empire. Alexander the great fell in love with Babylon and planned to move the capital of his empire there. Alexander wanted to propagate Mystery Babylon with a Greek flavor, seeking to integrate Greeks and non-Greeks together in a unified empire. To do this, he would accommodate existing Persian institutions. For example, he instituted a satrapy system of administrative oversight similar to the system the Persians used. On many occasions, he would recruit Persians to administer the satrapies; in the case of Artabazus17, a Persian satrap was reappointed by Alexander to high office in his empire.
Whereas the Persians were tolerant to Babylonian culture and religion, the Greeks pursued Babylonian religion with vigor. This included plans that involved relocating his residence, and therefore the capital of his empire, and rebuilding the Tower of Babel to resurrect the original Mystery Babylon system. Alexander “…intended to make the city his residence, and he ordered several building projects, like a large river port, a theater, and a reconstruction of the Etemenanki.”18, 19Notonly did Alexander frequent Babylon, but many kings from successor empires, including every king from the Seleucid Empire, spent time in Babylon. Alexander sought to rebuild Mystery Babylon as a global system, putting on it a Greek spin. His strategy was to synchronize Greek religion first with Mystery Babylon and also with every nation he conquered, distilling out of this process a global, pagan religion. The Alexander’s conquest of Babylon was a big game-changer in the history of religion
“But after the conquests of Alexander a great change took place. The ancient ideal of the Greek republic gave way to the conception of universal monarchy. Thenceforth municipal cults disappeared before an international religion.” 20
This initiative by Alexander was continued by his successors. When Alexander died in Babylon in 332 BC, his empire was split amongst his generals. Four major empires emerged from Alexander’s old empire. Two of these empires figure to be important in the spread of Mystery Babylon. One of these was the Seleucid Empire and the other the Ptolemaic Empire. The Seleucid Empire that controlled the area most closely corresponding to the Babylonian empire and the Ptolemaic Empire corresponding roughly to Egypt.
Conventional histories record what was called Hellenization, which was the spread of Greek language and culture to areas conquered by Greece. What is often ignored in these histories, however, is that cultural exchange is often two-way street. The Greeks continued Alexander’s program to commence syncretism between Greek religions and native religions of the lands they occupied.
The advent of the Seleucid Empire allowed Babylon to influence Greek Culture. The Seleucid Empire was a hotbed of religious syncretism and religious philosophy. In this environment, the religious and cultural continuity of Mystery Babylon as manifested through the Assyrian, Babylonian and Persian empires continues through the Seleucid Empire. The Seleucid Empire is “like the empire of Alexander, the continuation of the empires before: the Assyrian, Babylonian, and the Achaemenid Empire. This continuity is not in doubt, but scholars disagree about the question whether the Seleucids deliberately presented themselves as successors of the Achaemenids and intended to use the old structures.”21
The Ptolemaic Empire was also a hot bed of religious syncretism that began with the cult of Serapis which was founded by Ptolemy 1 which allowed Babylonian cosmology via Egyptian religion to infiltrate Greek culture22.
Not only did these two empires merge Greek religion with Babylonian religion and cosmology but influenced each other through the extensive cultural intercourse, including the marriage of Berenice 4 (a Ptolemy) with a Seleucid23. These streams of syncretism influenced several streams of religious thought which are influential in today’s New World Order: Kabala, Neo-Platonism, Gnosticism, and Hermeticism. Of these Hermeticism is of particular importance because of its involvement in the modern New World Order.
The Rise of Hermeticism
Hermeticism developed in the environment of religious syncretism that began with the cult of Serapis founded by Ptolemy 1. One particular form of this syncretism was the merger of the Greek god Hermes with the Egyptian god Thoth. Out of this particular cult Hermeticism arose. Hermeticism was allegedly founded by Hermes Trismegistus,”The alleged teacher the magical system known as Hermetism of which high magic and alchemy are thought to be twin branches. The name Trismegistus means thrice greatest Hermes, and is the title given by the Greeks to the Egyptian god Thoth or Tehuti, a lord of wisdom and learning.”24
At the core of Hermeticism are three core beliefs. The first is that that the physical universe evolved from chaos. The second is that god created man as co-divine an at-one with nature. The third is that the intercourse of man with nature results in the merger of nature with the divine.
Hermeticism, like the Greek, Egyptian, and Babylonian mysteries, teaches that nature evolved out of chaos. Out of light, darkness appears. This darkness turns into moisture and continues its intelligently guided evolution
“E’en with these words His aspect changed, 2 and straightway, in the twinkling of an eye, all things were opened to me, and I see a Vision limitless, all things turned into Light,—sweet, joyous [Light]. And I became transported as I gazed. But in a little while Darkness came settling down on part [of it], awesome and gloomy, coiling in sinuous folds, 3so that methought it like unto a snake. And then the Darkness changed into some sort of a Moist Nature, tossed about beyond all power of words, belching out smoke….
“[Thereon] out of the Light . . . a Holy Word (Logos) 2 descended on that Nature. And upwards to the height from the Moist Nature leaped forth pure Fire; light was it, swift and active too. The Air, too, being light, followed after the Fire; from out the Earth-and-Water rising up to Fire so that it seemed to hang there from. But Earth-and-Water stayed so mingled each with other, that Earth from Water no one could discern. Yet were they moved to hear by reason of the Spirit-Word (Logos) pervading them…
“Straightway from out the downward elements God’s Reason (Logos) 6 leaped up to Nature’s pure formation, and was at-oned with the Formative Mind; for it was co-essential with it. And Nature’s downward elements were thus left reason-less, so as to be pure matter.
“Then the Formative Mind ([at-oned] with Reason), he who surrounds the spheres and spins them with his whirl, set turning his formations, and let them turn from a beginning boundless unto an endless end. For that the circulation of these [spheres] begins where it doth end, as Mind doth will.
“And from the downward elements Nature brought forth lives reason-less; for He did not extend the Reason (Logos) [to them]. The Air brought forth things winged; the Water things that swim, and Earth-and-Water one from another parted, as Mind willed. And from her bosom Earth produced what lives she had, four-footed things and reptiles, beasts wild and tame.”25
In Hermeticism, Man is the focus of the divine principle at work in the evolution of the universe. The following passage illustrates that Hermeticism teaches that God created man so-divine.
“But All-Father Mind, being Life and Light, did bring forth Man co-equal to Himself, with whom He fell in love, as being His own child; for he was beautiful beyond compare, the Image of his Sire. In very truth, God fell in love with His own Form and on him did bestow all of His own formations. And when he gazed upon what the Enformer had created in the Father, [Man] too wished to enform; and [so] assent was given him by the Father. Changing his state to the formative sphere, in that he was to have his whole authority, he, gazed upon his Brother’s creatures. They fell in love with him, and gave him each a share of his own ordering.
“… So he who hath the whole authority o’er [all] the mortals in the cosmos and o’er its lives irrational, bent his face downwards through the Harmony, breaking right through its strength, and showed to downward Nature God’s fair Form.
“And when she saw that Form of beauty which can never satiate, and him who [now] possessed within himself each single energy of [all seven] Rulers as well as God’s [own] Form, she smiled with love; for ’twas as though she’d seen the image of Man’s fairest form upon her Water, his shadow on her Earth.
“He in his turn beholding the form like to himself, existing in her, in her Water, loved it and willed to live in it; and with the will came act, and [so] he vivified the form devoid of reason.
“And Nature took the object of her love and wound herself completely round him, and they were intermingled, for they were lovers.”26
According to this passage, god bestowed upon man all of his categories (In platonic discourse, they are called forms), including deity. Man is picture as bringing the categories of god into nature and becoming lovers with nature.27
When Hermeticists say that man is the focus of the divine principle, they do not mean the entire human race, but certain enlightened individuals. These individuals become enlightened and wield power over the future evolution of the universe. Hermeticism teaches that the divine humankind works to guide the evolution of nature into godhood
“The Hermetic Teachings regarding the process of Evolution are that, THE ALL, having meditated upon the beginning of the Creation–having thus established the material foundations of the Universe–having thought it into existence–then gradually awakens or rouses from its Meditation and in so doing starts into manifestation the process of Evolution, on the material, mental and spiritual planes, successively and in order. Thus the upward movement begins–and all begins to move Spiritward. Matter becomes less gross; the Units spring into being; the combinations begin to form; Life appears and manifests in higher and higher forms; and Mind becomes more and more in evidence–the vibrations constantly becoming higher.
“In short, the entire process of Evolution, in all of its phases, begins, and proceeds according to the established Laws of the “Indrawing” process. All of this occupies æons upon æons of Man’s time, each æon containing countless millions of years, but yet the Illumined inform us that the entire creation, including Involution and Evolution, of an Universe, is but “as the twinkle of the eye” to THE ALL. At the end of countless cycles of æons of time, THE ALL withdraws its Attention–its Contemplation and Meditation–of the Universe, for the Great Work is finished–and All is withdrawn into THE ALL from which it emerged. But Mystery of Mysteries–the Spirit of each soul is not annihilated, but is infinitely expanded–the Created and the Creator are merged.”28
Hermeticism promises gnosis, oneness with god, but not to all. The deification of mankind is only for certain people.
“Reason (Logos) indeed, O Tat, among all men hath He distributed, but Mind not yet; not that He grudgeth any, for grudging cometh not from Him, 3 but hath its place below, within the souls of men who have no Mind.
“Tat. Why then did God, O father, not on all bestow a share of Mind?
“Her. He willed, my son, to have it set up in the midst for souls, just as it were a prize.”29
Hermeticism teaches that there is an “enlightened elite” destined to rule the world and lead the world back to the godhead. Later Hegel and other thinkers would use this ideology to promote worship of the state and set up the New World Order. They would fulfill the admonitionto “in a band, go to the Father home; of their own selves they make surrender of themselves to Powers, and [thus] becoming Powers they are in God. This the good end for those who have gained Gnosis—to be made one with God. Why shouldst thou then delay? Must it not be, since thou hast all received, that thou shouldst to the worthy point the way, in order that through thee the race of mortal kind may by [thy] God be saved?”30 From a Biblical perspective, however, this is the mother of all harlots and abominations of the earth.
The scheme of Alexander the Great to establish a Greek flavored Mystery Babylon as the global religious system might have succeeded very early, but for one big setback. The rise of Christianity, with its Judeo-Christian meta-narrative, both rivaled and weakened the system. The big trend whose conclusion is the demarcation between ancient times and the middle Ages is the triumph of Christianity over Paganism as the primary religious narrative of the Roman Empire.
As Paganism became increasingly under siege, Hermeticism was increasingly seen among the various pagan communities as the standard bearer of a united Pagan spirituality. Iamblichus of Chalcis sought to create a united Pagan front using Hermeticism as point guard.31
After the fall of Ancient Paganism, Hermeticism survived throughout the Middle Ages by blending in with the pre-dominant religions. Hermeticism initially made some inroads among certain church fathers, albeit at the cost of those father attempting to redefine Hermeticism on Christian rather than Pagan terms.
“…a number of church fathers did their best to co-opt Hermetic writings in support of Christianity, going to the extent of forging ‘oracles of Hermes’ that predicted the coming of Jesus…Hermetic documents that might otherwise have been consigned to the flames were preserved and copied throughout the Middle Ages. A good deal of Hermeticism thus survived in Christian garb, giving rise to Christian occult traditions”32
While some Hermeticism survived in Christian guise, the most fertile ground for Hermeticism in the Middle Ages was found in Islamist countries. The New Encyclopedia of the Occult provides some background here
“The Arab invasion of the eighth century replaced one dogmatic religion with another in Egypt and through much of the Mediterranean world. The Muslim conquerors absorbed many of the cultural traditions of the peoples they overran, however, and a large body of Hermetic practice was taken over both by mystically minded Muslims and by Arab magicians. The Quran, the holy book of Islam, also provided a loophole for Hermeticists by including ‘Sabians’ among the Peoples of the Book. What the term Sabian meant… was widely interpreted to mean Hermeticism” 33
Medieval Islam as carrier of Hermeticism
When Islam conquered Arab, Greek, Persian and Hindu lands many of the native occult practices survived. Some of these became integrated into one of several Sufi traditions. Sufi Islam emphasizes intimate experience with God and often involved mysticism or pantheistic or gnostic concepts of God.
One cult that seems to spread throughout Islam is the cult of Hermes Trismegistus. In Islamic thought it was believed that all religion contained kernals of truth but would evolve into Islam. The following illustration is used
“The first chapter of the Fusus al-hikam (The Bezels of Wisdom) is entitled ‘The Wisdom of Divinity in the Word of Adam’. It begins with the assertion that the Real created the cosmos as an all-inclusive object in which he could contemplate the entities of his names, but that until he created Adam and breathed his spirit into him, the cosmos remained like an unpolished mirror. Here Ibn al-‘Arabi‘s idea seems to be that the cosmos as a whole – the totality of existent entities – manifests all the divine names but does so in a diffuse way, whereas man, as a microcosm endowed with consciousness, brings them into sharp focus as a unity. Potentially every man is a microcosm, but in practice men differ in their polishing of the cosmic mirror, with only a select few realizing their primordial nature. These are the prophets and saints, all of whom belong to the category of ‘the perfect man’ (al-insan al-kamil). They alone assume the character traits of God, which are latent in all human beings, and manifest them in perfect equilibrium.
“Muhammad is the ‘perfect man’ par excellence. Basing his argument on the hadith (sayings of the Prophet), ‘I was a prophet when Adam was between water and clay’,Ibn al-‘Arabi propounds the view that as ‘the Muhammadan reality’ (al-haqiqa al-Muhammadiyya), Muhammad is identical with ‘the first intellect’ (al-‘aql al-awwal), the eternal principle unifying the immutable entities.All the other prophets, beginning with Adam, only became prophets during their historical mission; each was the bearer of a fragment of this Muhammadan reality in a particular place and time, a bezel in which a jewel of the divine wisdom was displayed. None the less, after their mission the prophets continued to exert an influence through the saints who were their spiritual heirs.” 34
What this commentary about Islamic scholar Ibn al-‘Arabi is saying is that each man is a microcosm of the god-universe and his consciousness is capable and unifying the divine attributes and thus unifying god in the world. The view is that man’s ability to ‘polish the cosmic mirror’ is the key to realizing the divine nature and that people differ in their ability to polish that mirror. This is a scheme of spiritual evolution that is seen here as ending with Islam.
This spiritual evolution is standard Hermeticism: From god emanates his nature into the universe.Man is needed to unify, evolve and focus the divine nature. As man evolved into the divine nature by polishing the cosmic mirror, the full reality of god is fulfilled.
According to Seyyed Hossein Nasr, “Mystical philosophy has an intimate connection with the mainstream of Islamic philosophy. It consists of several main strands, ranging from Isma’ili thought to the metaphysics of al-Ghazali and Ibn al-‘Arabi, and with a continuing powerful presence in the contemporary Islamic world” 35 Nasr has this to say about the role of Hermeticism in Islam.
“Two of the notable philosophical elements associated with Shi’ism in general and Isma’ilism in particular during the early centuries of Islamic history are Hermetism and Pythagoreanism, the presence of which is already evident in that vast corpus of writings associated with Jabir ibn Hayyan, who was at once alchemist and philosopher. The philosophical dimension of the Jabirian corpus is certainly of a mystical nature, having incorporated much of Hermeticism into itself, as are later works of Islamic alchemy which in fact acted as channels for the transmission of Hermetic philosophy to the medieval West. When one thinks of the central role of Hermeticism in Western mystical philosophy, one must not forget the immediate Islamic origin of such fundamental texts as the Emerald Tablet and the Turba Philosophorum, and therefore the significance of such works as texts of Islamic mystical philosophy. Obviously, therefore, one could not speak of Islamic mystical philosophy without mentioning at least the Hermetical texts integrated into Islamic thought by alchemists as well as philosophers and Sufis, and also Hermetic texts written by Muslim authors themselves.” 36
Hermetic Roots of Jihadism.
As much as Islamists claim to want to return to pure Islam without pagan contamination there are Hermetic roots to the modern Islamist movement. Sayyid Qutb is considered a leading figure in the modern Islamist movement. He was a former member of the Muslim Brotherhood who wrote extensively. His brother Muhammad Qutb, mentored Dr Ayman Zahawiri who mentored Osama bin Laden. His writings influence modern jihadists and contain Hermetic ideas. The following quote from Qutb should make this clear
“So all creation issuing as it does from one absolute, universal, and active Will, forms an all-embracing unity in which each individual part is in harmonious order with the remainder…Thus, then, all creation is a unity comprising different parts; it has a common origin, a common providence and purpose, because it was produced by a single, absolute, and comprehensive Will…So the universe cannot be hostile to life, or to man; nor can ‘Nature’ in our modern phrase be held to be antagonistic to man, opposed to him, or striving against him. Rather she is a friend whose purposes are one with those of life and of mankind. And the task of living beings is not to contend with Nature, for they have grown up in her bosom, and she and they together form a part of the single universe which proceeds from the single will.”37
The phrase ‘issuing from’ implies that creation is co-eternal. It also contains the idea of god bringing forth a creation containing divine essence. Also Qutb seems to personify nature. Mother nature gave birth and nursed man in this figure. This sounds like the mother-goddess myths of pagan lore. Qutb here also seems to be promoting an absolute unity of man and nature with nature and the human race flowing in the same purpose. Nature personified could be interpreted to mean evolution and, that the evolution of government flows from natural evolution. Qutb’s framework here can easily be used to justify a global government issuing straight from god as if it were god himself-with mother nature channeling the action. In Qutb’s view this would be a global Islamic State that assumes “the vice-regency of God on earth”.38
Since man, in this Islamo-Hermetic thought, is needed to focus or channel the divine consciousness it follow that a unified, focused humanity is in order. A human race that thinks as one person: given the inequality of men in polishing the divine mirror – a particular world-historical personage emerges. A very short step brings the Hermeticist to exalt a global state and a global dictator as god.
When the Islamist Ottoman Empire, which was the seventh head of the beast, conquered the Byzantine Roman Empire, the stage was set for events to start the Renaissance.
In the early 15th century, the Ottoman Empire was about to conquer the Roman Empire. The impending doom of the Byzantine Roman Empire created in climate that allowed the Great Whore occult networks an opportunity to infiltrate Western Europe.
When the Roman Empire in the East fell many scholars from the Roman Empire fled to Western Europe. Some of these had views that were compatible with Christian orthodoxy; others had views more compatible with Occult practices and philosophies like Neo-Platonism, Occult Mysticism, Gnosticism, and Hermeticism. The occult oriented scholars brought to Western Europe both the occult practices and occult networks of the Great Whore to Western Europe.
Of the many scholars who promoted the occult in Western Europe, George Gemistos Plethon was the most influential. He got his opportunity when the Eastern Orthodox churches sought to pursue union with the Roman Catholic Church in order to secure the co-operation of Western Europe in combating the Islamic Ottoman Empire. The Roman and Eastern Orthodox Clergy agreed to meet in Florence Italy. Florence was then an independent city-state on Roman turf.
Because Roman Emperor John 8 Palaeologus ”...knew they were going to face some of the finest minds in the Roman Church on their own soil; he therefore wanted the best minds available in support of the Byzantine cause to accompany him. Consequently, the Emperor appointed George Gemistos as part of the delegation….”39
Gemistos Plethon was born sometime after 1355.40 As a young man he went to school at Hadrianopolis (now Edirne, Turkey). Hadrianopolis was, in Plethon’s youth, the capital of the Ottoman Empire. While he was there he was schooled in Neo-platonism, which at that time was the philosophical framework for various occult mysteries. Gemistos went to the capital city of the Great Whore to learn her secrets.
When Gemistos went to Florence he was invited by “some Florentine humanists to give a series of lectures on the differences between Plato and Aristotle”41 A temporary school was set up and Gemistos lectured on Neo-platonism and related occult mysteries.
Gemistos not only taught Neo-platonism generally but also distributed to the west a specific body of occult texts called the Corpus Hermeticum. Whereas Neo-platonism is the philosophy of Hermeticism the Corpus Hermeticum is the “Bible” of Hermeticism.
Gemistos lectures made a huge impact on the intellectual community of Florence. The timing was perfect, as Florence was undergoing a Renaissance that would influence subsequent European history. With 50 years the many leading scientists, intellectuals and many political figures were practicing Hermetic occultism and other occult practices.
The result of the infiltration of occultist into the emerging middle and academic classes during the Renaissance was that there would be a resurgence of ancient occult religion – the religion and politics of Mystery Babylon. This process was slowed greatly by the counter-acting force of the Protestant Reformation but sped up as the Reformation lost steam.
From Plethon to Hegel
When Plethon was lecturing I Florence, Italy, he re-established the Platonic Academy. While the Academy lasted very briefly, ending in 1492, it trained some very renowned intellectuals in the ways of Mystery Babylon. One of them was considered the leading intellectual of the Italian Renaissance, Marcilio Ficino. Ficino considered himself a true “a Platonist, but a Platonist in a very specific mold: as part of a long tradition of which Plato was a key part but which needed interpreters to keep it going. This “ancient theology” included figures who, divinely inspired, advanced true philosophy. One of the key figures in this sequence was the ancient sage Hermes ‘Trismegistus’”42Ficino adhered to Neo-Platonism and Hermeticism, two philosophies that emerged when Greece encountered Mystery Babylon during her occupation of lands once controlled by Babylon. Ficino had numerous students, the most important of which was Giovanni Pico della Mirandola.43 These two trained and influenced future generations of occultists trained in the ways of Mystery Babylon. The occult mysteries of Mystery Babylon, specifically Hermeticism, proliferated throughout European cultural and intellectual life..
Ficino and Mirandola trained two students in particular who would author two occult lineages: Heinrich Cornelius Agrippa von Nettesheim, and Johannes Manardus. Manardus would start a chain of influence that would influence G.W.F. Hegel 300 years later and Agrippa would start a chain of influence that would influence Erasmus Darwin 250 years later. Hegel and Darwin represent two interrelated streams of Mystery Babylon cosmology. Darwin represents the idea of an evolutionary god with natural evolution being god and Hegel represent the idea that evolution leads to the emergence of a state that is god on earth.
From Manardus to Hegel
Johannes Manardus was friend and physician of Mirandola44.Manardus was also a friend of Paracelsus45,Paracelsus relationship with Manardus exposed him to the teachings of Mirandola and others. 46 Paracelsus was a key influence on Jakob Bohme a century later. 47
Bohme influenced Georg W.F. Hegel so much that Hegel the first German philosopher. 48 There is a threefold significance to Hegel’s contribution to the history of Mystery Babylon. The first is that he is indeed a student of the Hermetic occult tradition. The second is that he had links to the emerging mainstream rationalistic, evolutionist culture. The third is that, following Hegel were several conspiracies with links to the current New World Order.i
Hegel was a student of Hermeticism. Occult beliefs, and particularly Hermeticism, were rife in Swabia, a region in southern Germany. Glenn Magee writes that not only was Hermetic and occult literature was plentiful in Swabia, but Hegel was exposed to a number of Hermetic and occultic thinkers49. Hegel’s writing reflects Hermetic thought. Hegel was the sixth generation in an unbroken link of hermetic, occult influence.
Hegel taught a concept of god that was evolving. He often referred to it as the world-spirit. In Hegel’s view, this world-spirit separated from the infinite god and became instantiated in history. This world-spirit is also referred to as the march of god on earth. This world spirit manifests or instantiates itself in the history of the state. Hegel saw history as the evolution of the world-spirit into a perfect form, the “rational state”, where the state is god on earth.
- This world-spirit begins as unconscious reason in the evolution of nature and evolves consciousness in human history. 50
- Hegel saw the state as a conscious rationality that had divine nature as god on earth. 51
- This evolved world-spirit, the divine state, would re-unite with the infinite, completing god’s evolution. 52
- God evolved in his march through history through means of world-historical nations and world-historical individuals (Neitchean supermen were based on this) which are the focus of divine activity. 53
- The individual person has real existence only in relation to the state and by virtue of the will of the state. 54
From Agrippa to Darwin
Agrippa was considered one of the leading occultist in the sixteenth century.His book De occulta philosophia libri tres / Three Books of Occult Philosophy is considered “the most comprehensive and most widely known book on magic and all occult arts” 55 Having been interested in the occult for years, he went to Italy where he could learn from the masters of the occult. From 1511 to 1518, he immersed himself in the culture of the Italian renaissance in general,and in particular, Ficino and Pico Mirandola56 “Ficino and Pico were Agrippa’s source for philosophical texts that formed the theoretical basis for his conception of magic, the works of Plato, the Alexandrian Neoplatonists (especially Plotinus), and the Hermetic texts, all of which Ficino had translated into Latin. From the Florentines, he took the concept of a prisca theologia, the body of books by ancient sages who were believed to antedate even the Greek philosophers and to record divine revelations that paralleled God’s revelation to the Hebrews in the Bible. These sages included Zoroaster and the Oracula Chaldaica (Chaldean Oracles), supposedly representing the primordial wisdom of the Persians and Babylonians;”57
Agrippa was a major influence on John Dee58, who heavily influenced the Rosicrucian movement59. The Rosicrucians influenced the views of Erasmus Darwin.”When the famous physician and botanist Erasmus Darwin(Charles Darwin’s grandfather) was writing his poetic and scientific commentary The Botanic Garden(1792), he wrote in his introduction of how he had divided up his material in a manner he called ‘Rosicrucian’…”60 Erasmus was one of the first proponents of modern evolutionary theory. In 1794, Erasmus Darwin published Zoonomia, or, The Laws of Organic Life. 61 Erasmus, along with Charles Darwin’s father and brother, is listed by the British Columbia Grand Lodge as Freemasons62.
From Hegel and Darwin to the New World Order
Hegel and Darwin form two branches of the New World Order. Darwin represents naturalistic religion that posits nature and evolution as the ultimate reality. Hegel represents the faction that posits that evolutionary or dialectic processes results in the emergence of a state that is god on earth. From these two headstreams comes every major component on the modern New World Order.
Hegel’s dialectic view of historical evolution also strongly influenced Karl Marx, who decided to reinterpret it along materialistic lines rather than the spiritual lines that Hegel did. This reinterpretation is called dialectical materialism63 Marx believed that Capitalism (Bourgeoisie) would be opposed by a workers revolution (the Proletariat) that would produce a classless society (Communism) as the synthesis.
Marx’s philosophy, called Marxism would begat numerous interpretations. There are four major interpretations that have resulted in globally significant cultural and political movements: These are Bolshevism, Democratic Socialism, Neo-conservatism, and Freudo-Marxism.
Bolshevism is more commonly called Communism.64 The Bolsheviks were the dominant factions in the Russian Revolution that occurred in October 1917. They followed Marx literally, engaging in violent revolution to overthrow Capitalist governments and setting up state controlled economic systems. Bolsheviks preach that the dialectic of history always occurs via violent revolution.
Democratic Socialism emerged because of problems that quickly manifested themselves as revolutionaries attempted to implement Bolshevism. The first problem was that advanced Capitalist societies failed to produce the workers revolution that Marx predicted. This was because, as Capitalism matured, it created opportunities for a skilled labor class who had reasons to continue to invest in the Capitalist system. These laborers had much to lose from revolution. The second problem is that workers revolutions require a bureaucratic class to administer the new government. This inevitably results in the creation of a new bourgeoisie/ upper class. The result is state capitalism rather than communism.
In the early 20’s some Marxists began to think that the Marxist dialectic is more effectively administered by manipulating democratic institutions than by violently disrupting society. In what is called the Second and a Half International, these Marxists broke away from their more violent brothers.65 According to Radek, out of this development emerged the Democratic Socialist parties of Western Europe. In addition to controlling European politics, Democratic Socialism is increasingly becoming the dominant political narrative in the Democratic Party in the United States.
It is important to note that Marxists are only interested in using Democracy as a tool; the end-goal is the establishment of statist Socialism as the next stage of the dialectic process. Once Democratic Socialists succeed in establishing socialism, they sabotage democratic procedures to render a reversal impossible. They call the term democratic centralism66. The concept of democratic centralism was coined by Lenin. It describes a process, by which democratic procedure is used until the desired policy is established, then power is centralized and all dissent from the party line is crushed. Whereas Communists did this in a one party system, Democratic Socialists will do this in a multi-party system and use various techniques of repressive tolerance to marginalize undesirable political positions. 67
There are several major streams that emerge from Erasmus Darwin. His grandson, Charles Darwin, produced a materialistic interpretation of evolution, and Erasmus Rosicrucian-influenced purpose-driven evolution continued to linger.
His grandson Charles Darwin is often credited with evolution, but contributed little new information as far as science is concerned. Whereas Erasmus saw evolution as a purposeful process, Charles saw it as a random process. Charles Darwin’s version of evolution has been the single greatest attack upon the Christian faith in the past 150 years, which was the purpose of formulating the materialistic version of evolution.
There remained, however, various interpretations of intelligently guided evolution by Darwin’s Rosicrucian influence. The Erasmus-Rosicrucian interpretation of evolution influenced Henri Bergson, through his contact with his brother-in-law Samuel Mathers, who was a member of the Societas Rosicrucianas and founder of the Golden Dawn. 68, 69, 70
Bergson developed an evolutionary theory of consciousness71 that was influential in the development of psychology. He was a member of the British Psychical Association (Now just Psychical Association) and its President in 191372. The Psychical Association studies paranormal psychology, which is the integration of the occult in psychology
“ Psychical research and parapsychology are concerned with the scientific investigation of the ways that organisms communicate and interact with each other and with the environment, that appear to be inexplicable within current scientific models. Stories of the paranormal (apparitions, prophetic dreams and visions, inexplicable awareness of events faraway, divination, miraculous cures etc) have been with us since antiquity, but it was only in the 19th century that the subject began to be studied in a systematic and scientific way.”73
Carl Jung was an occultist74 who believed there was a “collective unconscious” that lived through history and instantiated itself through individual consciousness. The collective unconscious is afforded divine nature, as there are similarities between Jung’s theory of the collective unconscious and the “march of god through history” concept of Hegel.
”Jung stated that the religious experience must be linked with the experience of the archetypes of the collective unconscious. Thus, God himself is lived like a psychic experience of the path that leads one to the realization of his/her psychic wholeness.” 75
This idea of evolving and emerging consciousness would figure prominently later in the New Age Movement which would mixWestern esoteric idea from Mystery Babylon with eastern religion.76
Bergson also influenced Jesuit and scientist Teilhard de Chardin, who championed a version of intelligently guided evolution77 and influenced the development of “Liberation Theology.” 78
Sigmund Freud, another occultist79, is best known for his sexual ideology which defines three basic terms: id, super-ego, and ego. The id was called the pleasure principle and represented unbridled instincts such as hunger and the sex drive. The id, in Freud’s thought, was wild instincts that functioned on an animal level. The super-ego represented the conscience, morality of man and knowledge of social norms. Between the super-ego and the id was the rational ego or the reality principle.80
Freud’s ideas would later be mixed with Marxism to form the basis of the unholy trinity of Freudo-Marxism or Radical Leftism: abortion rights, radical feminism, and homosexual fascism. The basic premise of Freudo-Marxism, promoted by Herbert Marcuse in his book, Eros and Civilization(1955)81 is that Freud’s analysis of id, super-ego, and ego are actually a dialectic process where sexuality was the primary driving force. Raw sexual desire that existed in the state of nature was opposed by the rise of civilization which repressed sexual desires. According to Marcuse, the repression of sexual instinct by civilization led to a destructive dialectic as “the very progress of civilization leads to the release of increasingly destructive forces” 82 Marcuse believed that the result of this dialectic struggle was that a new stage would be reached where you could have both civilization and unbridled sexual impulses, a society in which the traditional family was weakened.
“But, within the system of unified and intensified controls, decisive changes are taking place. They affect the structure of the superego and the content and manifestation of guilt feeling. Moreover, they tend toward a state in which the completely alienated world, expending its full power, seems to prepare the stuff and material for a new reality principle. The superego is loosened from its origin, and the traumatic experience of the father is superseded by more exogenous images. As the family becomes less decisive in directing the adjustment of the individual to society, the father-son conflict no longer remains the model -conflict.”83
The idea that sexual anarchy and civilization merge together in synthesis leads to cultural transformation84. There are three major cultural implications. It leads to a radical feminism, homosexual activism, and pro-abortion politics.
Radical Feminists apply Marcuse analysis to argue that sexual repression has resulted in society’s repression of women and that the answer is to eliminate differences between men and women and abolish traditional roles for men and women.
Homosexualists apply Marcuse analysis to argue that, if sexuality is the primary driving force behind dialectical historical processes, then sexual orientation is the master status or the primary definition of human significance. They would also argue that society has repressed them and that Marcuse’s dialectic means that any opposition to homosexuality is a personal attack on homosexuals; the homosexualist perspective is that homosexuality is not merely an attribute but THE core defining attribute of homosexuals. Attacks on homosexuality are, by definition, attacks on homosexuals.
Pro-abortionists apply Marcuse analysis to argue for the necessity of legal abortion. They argue that reproductive freedom is at the heart of both women’s liberation and the sexual revolution. They then argue that reproductive freedom is impossible without unlimited access to legal abortions. While pro-abortionist initially argue for abortion rights as a negative right85, then proceed to promote it as a positive right.86
The Re-emergence of Mother Goddess Worship
Freudo-Marxism is in the process of merging with Hermetic and New Age Occultism. There is a resurgence of worship of the mother goddess, particularly within feminist circles. Two of the leading players within the feminist movement have been influenced by the mother goddess worship of Mystery Babylon. Mary Daly, one of the pioneers of the feminist movement, was a Jesuit theologian who “Rejecting traditional conceptions of a transcendent (and often male) God, Daly promoted a sense of the Absolute as a “Be-ing” that was not only immanent but actualized through women’s creativity.” 87 This is similar to the views of the Hermetic occultists who promote the evolving god who must instantiate himself through history. Daly’s take on Hermeticism is that she presented female creativity as the dialectic, evolutionary force in history.
Gloria Steinem is also influenced by naturalistic religion. In an interview with Mona Eltahawy on October 13, 2011, Steinem revealed that she embraced Paganism. The following quote begins 16:14 into the program and lasts exactly two minutes.
“However, I have to say, as a Pagan. Pagan just means nature. It just means to me that there’s something sacred about every living thing: plants, animals, and so on. I owe that to your country, because I took the trip down the Nile from the more Nubian older parts to Cairo. And since it’s such a profoundly old center of civilization you can see it in the carvings of the temples that at the very, very oldest Nubian parts, god is present in everything, in papyrus and butterflies and men and women, and, ya know, everything. And then you go a little further, it’s a thousand years later and god has been withdrawn from a lot of nature, and the goddess has a son and no daughter, and then it’s another thousand years and a few more miles and the son has become a consort, and finally, ya know, the goddess has the throne on which the pharoah sits, and then you get to mos where there is rarely allowed an image of nature or of women.
“So, as a famous Egyptologist, Henry Breasted, have you read him. He said Monotheism Mono-theism is just imperialism in religion and the withdrawal of god from nature and from females was what allowed it, made it okay to conquer nature and females, and I must say that ever since I took that trip on the Nile, all monotheism has made me cranky. And, you know, when God looks like the ruling class, it’s kind of suspicious.”88
Steinem found common cause between Feminism and witchcraft because she saw witchcraft as empowering women, She says the following in a speech given at Salem College in March 1993
“And if we look at history whole we can learn a lot. We can think of Pat Robertson. It may find that we were killing witches because they were healers, because they taught women contraception, because they could perform abortions, because they gave women control of their own bodies. In other words, they were doing a very radical thing in fact, which is seizing control or maintaining control of the means of reproduction. Even sounds radical when you say it that way, right? It may seem a long time ago that they were accused of eating babies and conversing with the devil and all this kind of stuff, but Pat Robertson can tell us today that all feminists really want is to leave their husbands, kill babies and become lesbians…
“…If we dare to live in the present, to live to the fullest, then we may be punished in somewhat the same way. But we can learn from scholars who look at the world whole. We can learn from understanding that witches were indeed healers and freedom fighters and not people to be denigrated on Halloween or any other time. Perhaps we should devote our next Halloween to having a celebration of witches as wise women. This means a very deep change, because it means changing the whole paradigm of masculine and feminine with which children grow up and which is the root of the idea of subject/object, winner/loser, and the whole model on which race and class and all other hierarchies are built.”89
Gerald Gardner, who was a member of a Rosicrucian society, founded Wicca in 1955. The narrative of Wicca is that they descendant of ancient religion that worshipped the mother goddess and respected femininity. This narrative is best summed up by Starhawk Simos.
“This nature-attuned, woman-respecting, peaceful, and egalitarian culture prevailed in what is now Western Europe for thousands of years, Starhawk wrote, until Indo-European invaders swept across the region, introducing warrior gods, weapons designed for killing human beings, and patriarchal civilization. Then came Christianity, which eventually insinuated itself among Europe’s ruling elite. Still, the “Old Religion” lived, often in the guise of Christian practices.”90
Carol Christ says the same thing.
“The symbol of Goddess has much to offer women who are struggling to be rid of the “powerful, pervasive, and long-lasting moods and motivations” of devaluation of female power, denigration of the female body, distrust of female will, and denial of the women’s bonds and heritage that have been engendered by patriarchal religion. As women struggle to create a new culture in which women’s power, bodies, will, and bonds are celebrated, it is natural that the Goddess would reemerge as symbol of the newfound beauty, strength, and power of women.” 91
From the feminist perspective, the symbol of the goddess provides freedom from the evils of patriarchy. The feminist interpretation of historical claims of these feminist Pagans is revisionist history. The worship of powerful females in ancient times did not translate into peace-loving matriarchal societies. Mortal women were mistreated as mere property.92
The material used in modern mother goddess worship was borrowed from Rosicrucians who got their material from the Hermetic occultists during the Italian renaissance. Through Gardner, one stream of Mystery Babylon, Rosicrucianism, is linked with another, Freudo-Marxism. Feminism is the link between these two.
Mother Goddess worship and Environmentalism
Mother goddess worship is connected with naturalistic religion. Nature worship emphasized a harmonious connection and reverence for nature in general and the earth in particular. The mother goddess worship of the feminists exists within a much larger context of Paganism. Paganism, like Hermeticism, believes that the divine instantiates itself in natural events.
“The recognition of the divine in nature is at the heart of Pagan belief. Pagans are deeply aware of the natural world and see the power of the divine in the ongoing cycle of life and death. Most Pagans are eco-friendly, seeking to live in a way that minimises harm to the natural environment.
“Pagans worship the divine in many different forms, through feminine as well as masculine imagery and also as without gender. The most important and widely recognised of these are the God and Goddess (or pantheons of God and Goddesses) whose annual cycle of procreation, giving birth and dying defines the Pagan year. Paganism strongly emphasises equality of the sexes. Women play a prominent role in the modern Pagan movement, and Goddess worship features in most Pagan ceremonies.” 93
Such an emphasis on nature is certainly fueling the current environmentalist movement. Humanity Healing is just one example of earth spirituality being applied to environmentalism.94
The Earth Charter, a key document of the New World Order, echoes this in the following statement which hints that the earth is alive and the source of all we have:
“Humanity is part of a vast evolving universe. Earth, our home, is alive with a unique community of life. The forces of nature make existence a demanding and uncertain adventure, but Earth has provided the conditions essential to life’s evolution. The resilience of the community of life and the well-being of humanity dependupon preserving a healthy biosphere with all its ecological systems, a rich variety of plants and animals, fertilesoils, pure waters, and clean air. The global environment with its finite resources is a common concern of allpeoples. The protection of Earth’s vitality, diversity, and beauty is a sacred trust.”95
After the fall of the Ottoman Empire the process of succession is more detailed. After the fall of the Ottoman Empire there is a woman who rides the beast. The woman is the immediate successor to the Ottoman Empire. At first she controls the beast. Then there are ten kings who hate the woman and shift the balance of power towards the antichrist.
When the Ottoman Empire fell it was not conquered by another empire as its predecessors were. Through Plethon, her mysteries were transmitted to the extant political movements that make up the current New World Order that it was a loosely organized alliance of institutions, corporate and political players. Scripture indicates that just before the final beast appears that just such an alliance would rule. Scripture indicates that such an alliance would have these attributes:
- She is the Mystery of Iniquity- occult societies with a history from Babel to modern times
- She is a secret community
- Her basis of power is economic, she is therefore a non-state actor and as such not represented as a head of a beast but as a woman
- She is the genesis of all immoral philosophies and practices
She is the Mystery of Iniquity
Mystery Babylon is a network of occult societies that have existed from Babel to modern times. In chapter 5, I have traced the historical march of Mystery Babylon from Babel through the ancient period. In Medieval Period to the Renaissance. In chapter 6, I traced Mystery Babylon to the modern antecedents of the New World Order. I showed how the major political narratives in the contemporary global scene have descended from Mystery Babylon. In this chapter, I will show how they are interrelated in the New World Order.
She is a secret community. There are two passages that give us this clue. Babylon is called a city-which can mean either a literal city or city as a figure for a community. Mystery is part of her name, clearly implying that she is a secret community. Today we have a secret community of political, academic, media and economic elites. They rule through universities, think tanks, corporation non-government organization and political action committees. An international secret community gained prominence following WW2 with most of these organizations being in Europe and America.
And the woman which thou sawest is that great city, which reigneth over the kings of the earth.
Her basis of power is economic, she is therefore a non-state actor and as such not represented as a head of a beast but as a woman.
Her merchants are the great men of the earth. The money men are the ones with power, and they use their money to fund the causes they support. Osama bin Laden and George Soros are two examples of wealthy men who are funding political causes. The money trail reveals strange bedfellows, such as the fact that the primary business partners of the Bush family is the bin Laden family. It was in Europe that the both banking and financial instruments and industrial and technological capacities to produce this wealth were created.
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.
The history of modern banking begins with the Medicis. 96
The same Cosimo Medici who started the New Platonic Academy to promote Plethon’s Hermeticism and other Mysteries of Mystery Babylon also presided over a banking empire. Hermetic occultists had plenty of cash available to them to both start businesses and receive education in the merging university systems. The Medici Banking dynasty was eventually displaced by the Fuggers, who were heavily involved in alchemy and crystal ball gazing. 97 According to Roper, it was extremely common for businesses in the sixteenth century to seek out the occult. The combination of uncertain business conditions and the extreme consequences of failure, debtor’s imprisonment, led many to use the occult to gain information in an effort to minimize uncertainty.
She is the Mother of all immoral philosophies and practices.
Where do today’s immoral and anti-moral philosophies and practices come from. These have their genesis in European universities and centers of culture. This decadence was later exported to America and America is now a major promoter of immorality alongside Europe. As operatives of Mystery Babylon exert their influence in the various culture centers in Europe in America the stage was set for the global dominance of Mystery Babylon as the culture of the nations of the west became the dominant culture on earth.
And upon her forehead was a name written, MYSTERY, BABYLON THE GREAT, THE MOTHER OF HARLOTS AND ABOMINATIONS OF THE EARTH.
All of the various political movements that make up the New World Order can be grouped into three broad layers. There is the metaphysical or cosmological layer, there is the cultural layer, and then there is the political layer.
The metaphysical layer is represented by various interpretations of evolution that are falsely represented as science. Evolutionary ideas form the cosmology of Mystery Babylon.
The cultural layer is Freudo-Marxism, with its support for feminism, homosexuality and abortion; This cultural layer also includes the resurging Paganism and types of spirituality that caters to these movements. This spiritual revolution will also seek to hijack religious traditions that have been historically opposed to the new morality being promoted by Freudo-Marxist philosophy.
The political layer is comprised of the ideological children of Hegel: Living Document Theory, Fascism, Communitarianism, Marxism and its children. These ideologies are themselves organized into three sublayers: the implementation of democratic socialism in the major nations of the world, the implementation of “cartel parties” to insulate political parties from any grassroots influence, and the concentration of power in corporations and “non-government organizations.” These layers promote every abomination on earth today.
The 20th century has seen an incredible concentration in the balance of power in America and the world. This concentration of power is what makes a global conspiracy possible. Any kind of organized movement, including conspiracies, becomes more difficult to manage as more players become involved. In a decentralized society more players must be involved in order to micromanage that society. Individual freedom is more a function of how decentralized a society becomes rather than form of government. For example, Christians living France (Gaul) during the occupation of ancient Rome had more freedom than Christians living today in modern France.
While many areas of the modern world have forms of government that provide greater legal protection from arbitrary government power there is a greater concentration of overall social power today than ever. Power that used to be wielded by individuals, families, and local communities is now gravitating towards national and international elites. This development is what makes global conspiracy possible.
Two of the three classes of societies in the world, totalitarian regimes and banana republics, are both characterized by a centralization of power. In totalitarian regimes power is centralized in the regime and in a banana republic, power is concentrated in the few who own everything: All that is necessary for a globalist conspiracy to control these societies is to use the appropriate combination of carrots and sticks to control or co-opt the elites.
The remaining class of society, the so-called free societies, would appear to be more decentralized. There are, however, centralized controls of critical apparatus that allows for national or international elites to maintain centralized control while developing an illusion of freedom.
In so called free societies elites can take control while cultivating an illusion of liberty by expanding liberties that fulfill psychological needs that humans share with animals, while at the same time suppressing liberties that uniquely fulfill psychological needs associated with man’s existence as humans created in God’s image. In secular terms elites will expand opportunities to fulfill needs in the lower stages of Maslow’s hierarchy of needs while suppressing or controlling the fulfillment of higher order needs.
In order to accomplish this elites need only strategic control of critical apparatus. Controlling things like the legal system, mass media, public education, popular culture and science will allow a very small number of people to control and define an entire culture. While this chapter will focus on the development of elitism in America, similar results hold in the rest of the so-called free world.
While the table below is not exhaustive, it gives a concise picture of just how much power has been concentrated. For example, fewer than 24,000 people get to define the legal system. About 200,000 people define the pop culture and 50,000 people define the education of the nation’s children. About 2 million people run the religious and social services. Businesses employing 100 or more make up only 2% of all business, but operate 15% of the establishments, employ about half of all workers, and finance about 57% of the total payroll in the United States. The grand total is about 4 million people, or 1.3 percent of the population. This is the real one percent.
The implications for conspiracies in general, and the conspiracy of Mystery Babylon in particular, is that controlling a so-called free society where power is highly concentrated can be accomplished by co-opting only those individuals and sectors that create the cultural architecture that defines interactions on society. Mystery Babylon only needs the cooperation of the one percent, and the rest are stuck with the consequences.

The United Nation Agenda 21 is the United Nations initiative to control all commerce. Under the guise of promoting sustainable development and combating environmental dangers, Mystery Babylon will force Communism on the world. The brand of Communism that will be enforced is of a slight variant to Stalinism. It is called syndicalism. Syndicalism economies are, like Stalinism, planned economies. The policy-making architecture, however, is different. In Stalinism, both policy-making and implementation were done in a centralized fashion. While syndicalist economies still do the planning centrally, they allow for local adaptation in implementing the plan, allowing for the planned economy to respond quickly to changes in the market.
This chapter will analyze Agenda 21 based on the United Nations document112. I will focus on selected passages to show that Agenda 21 involves central planning of all commerce by elites, with all elites connected to the United Nations elite. While this chapter is about economic, the United Nations is not interested only in economics. The term “inter-sectoral plan” appears often in the Agenda 21 document. The United Nations has plans to meddle in your economic, social, and spiritual life – and it is the agenda of Mystery Babylon.
Re-organizing the control of land
Chapter 10.2 is saying that the objective of Agenda 21 is to re-organize the “reorganization and, where necessary, some strengthening of the decision-making structure,”113 in managing land resources. The current decision-making structure is that, while land use is subject to some degree of regulation, it is fundamentally managed by private parties. Land tenure is the term use to describe the rules that control how land is possessed. Agenda 21 identifies land tenure as a cause of land degradation and wants to change the rules.114
Changing the rules governing how land is possessed necessarily involves redistribution of land, which will have winners and losers. Agenda 21 acknowledges this, calling them trade-offs. Trade-off imply that the gaining of benefits, in this case so-called “sustainable development” requires a cost. As we shall soon see, that cost is property rights. Agenda 21 seeks to re-allocate land and its uses
“Land resources are used for a variety of purposes which interact and may compete with one another; therefore, it is desirable to plan and manage all uses in an integrated manner. Integration should take place at two levels, considering, on the one hand, all environmental, social and economic factors (including, for example, impacts of the various economic and social sectors on the environment and natural resources) and, on the other, all environmental and resource components together (i.e., air, water, biota, land, geological and natural resources). Integrated consideration facilitates appropriate choices and trade-offs, thus maximizing sustainable productivity and use. Opportunities to allocate land to different uses arise in the course of major settlement or development projects or in a sequential fashion as lands become available on the market. This in turn provides opportunities to support traditional patterns of sustainable land management or to assign protected status for conservation of biological diversity or critical ecological services.”115
Agenda 21 seek to “facilitate allocation of land.”116. According to chapter 10.5, there are two purposes for this re-allocation. The first is to “provide the greatest sustainable benefits” and the second is to “promote the transitionto a sustainable and integrated management of land resources.”117 Agenda 21 seeks not only an optimal benefit from land use but to change fundamentally how land is managed.
Seeking the optimal use of land is only possible if a centralized authority or network of authorities exists that is empowered to deny other uses. This necessitates a shift in organizational management of lands from individuals and other private parties to a regime where governments and professional elites are the key players. This is a profound leap away from fourth amendment understanding of private property rights as inalienable rights that limit the reach of government, placing on it the burden of justifying seizure of land. 10.5 says that “private property rights, the rights of indigenous people and their communities and other local communities and the economic role of women in agriculture and rural development, among other issues, should be taken into account” 118 by governments in formulating policy. Property rights under Agenda 21 are mere guidelines – privileges rather than secure legal restriction on the arbitrary exercise of state power.
Government Key Player in Agenda 21.
Government plays the central role in Agenda 21. Sections 10.6,10.7 and other places read “Governments at the appropriate level, with the support of regional and international organizations, should…”119,120 Agenda 21 is about state management of land and private property. Agenda 21 calls on governments to compile “Compile detailed land capability inventories to guide sustainable land resources allocation, management and use at the national and local levels.”121
Agenda 21 enforced through propaganda of all leaders
Agenda 21 calls on a layered, syndicalist method of control, where governments “Establish a general framework for land-use and physical planning within which specialized and more detailed sectoral plans (e.g., for protected areas, agriculture, forests, human settlements, rural development) can be developed; establish intersectoral consultative bodies to streamline project planning and implementation;”122 Government are to establish general parameters of the plan, while delegating details to specialized groups.
The key to this approach is to syndicate the mission of Agenda 21 to other organizations. Doing this requires that people be trained and indoctrinated into the Agenda 21 mindset. Agenda 21 instructs governments to “launch awareness-raising campaigns to alert and educate people on the importance of integrated land and land resources management and the role that individuals and social groups can play in it.”123 Agenda 21 provides for governments to “promote the development of the human resources that are required to plan and manage land and land resources sustainably.” 124 Through embedding Agenda 21 into the curricula of universities and by training “all relevant sectorsconcerned to deal with land resources in an integrated and sustainable manner.” 125 In other words, People at all levels and arena of influence are indoctrinated in Agenda 21.
Agenda 21 is a shift towards elitist, and specifically government controls over all economic life. My analysis was primarily focused on chapter 10, which is control of land,. Because the management of land and its resources is basic to all other economic activity, a shift in how land is managed reverberates throughout the entire economy. The adoption of Agenda 21 means an end of free enterprise. It also means that there is an increased focus on government as the key economic provider. This dovetails with the religious cosmology of Mystery Babylon. Agenda 21 is not the only agenda that the United Nations is promoting in its effort to establish the reign of Mystery Babylon. The next chapter will discuss the religious agenda of the United Nations.
In the last chapter, I wrote of how the United Nations seeks to inject itself in every economic decision. The United Nations wants to transform the economies of the world into economies where the state is the key player, in keeping with the cosmology of Mystery Babylon where the state and its leaders are worshipped as god on earth. In this chapter, the religious agenda of the United Nations is unveiled.
Roots of the United Nations
After World War 1 and after the fall of the Ottoman Empire, world leaders wanted to set up an international organization to pursue world peace. This was the first attempt by Mystery Babylon to set up a global throne. It failed because the United States of America would not join. After World War 2, the United Nations was established as a second attempt to have a global order.
The United Nations as a spiritual stronghold of evil
The United Nations (UN) was created with a basis in spiritual principles. This chapter will analyze just a few of these links to show that the United Nations is a vehicle for spreading the Hermeticist cosmology of Mystery Babylon. According to the The NGO Committee on Spirituality Values and Global Concerns,The UN was built
“on spiritual principles and universal values such as peace, human rights, human dignity, human worth, justice, respect, good neighbourliness and freedom. Many of the key founders of the UN and those in leadership positions there today also use spirituality and values as a guiding force.
The Dumbarton Oaks Conference, which took place in San Francisco in December 1944, began to address the formation of a United Nations Charter. The key countries that were addressing the UN Charter listed 12 major functions of the UN. One of these functions was to be the seeker of freedom. And, in defining this term, it said that for humans to attain ultimate freedom the UN not only had to promote material growth but also spiritual growth. This spiritual consciousness was behind the formation of the UN and on October 24, 1945 the UN Charter was officially recognized and the United Nations came into being.”126
The United Nations takes a two layered approach to promoting its spirituality. The first layer is ecumenical, claiming respect for all religious values. The key player in this is the United Religions Initiative127. The second layer is a host of organizations that have links to the UN, many of which participated in the Spirit of the United Nations program128.A few of these organizations include The NGO Committee on Spirituality Values and Global Concerns, The Aquarian Community, and the Values Coalition.
United Religions Initiative
The United Religion Initiative was founded to unite various religious traditions “for the benefit of our Earth community.”129 The URI claims to “respect the uniqueness of each tradition, and differences of practice or belief.”130This ecumenicalism, however, is merely a public face for religious evolution and the promotion of the evolving god of Hermeticism, the religion of Mystery Babylon.
At the heart of URI are their co-operation circles. One such circle, Circle of Healers, posts as their dream “to call forth the God in all being for the highest and best good for all on earth.” 131
The NGO Committee on Spirituality Values and Global Concerns
The NGO Committee on Spirituality Values and Global Concerns is a United Nations committee. Their mission is to incorporate spirituality into themission of the United Nations.
“In order to fulfill the promise of the United Nations to create a more peaceful, just and sustainable world, we support the recognition and acceptance that spirituality and adherence to universal values are key factors in providing solutions to global concerns.”132
One of their key beliefs is the premise that mankind is god. “This committee recognizes the importance of connecting with our divine essence, inner wisdom and the oneness of life. We believe that an increased awareness and application of the importance of a value, spirit and soul conscious dimension at all levels of society particularly at the United Nations will allow for the finest and the highest levels of human potential to flourish for the benefit of all.(as of December 2007) “133
The Aquarian Community
The Aquarian Community is one of the key organizations that has been peddling Hermetic spirituality at the United Nations. The aquarian Community promotes standard Hermeticism, putting forth the belief that part of the godhead separated from the god of heaven, evolved to consciousness, and eventually re-uniting with the divine in heaven.
“Perhaps we have reached a time of cosmic evolution. Little by little, a planetary prayer book is being composed by an increasingly united humanity seeking its oneness, its happiness, its consciousness and its full participation in the continuous process of creation’…Once again, but this time on a universal scale, mankind is seeking no less than its reunion with the ‘divine’, its transcendence into even higher forms of life.”134
The Aquarian Community makes reference to a group called ‘The Hierarchy. These claim to be ascended masters who are supposedly able to channel divine forces. These people are the real rulers of the earth, using the UN to manipulate governments and corporations. The Heirarchy is supposedly channeling divine energies into the United Nations
“In further reference to the U.N., Alice A. Bailey in The Reappearance of the Christ said, ‘The Hierarchy is at this time attempting to channel the forces of reconstruction into the Assembly of the United Nations.” 135
The United Nations is being set up to be god on earth, as the nexus between the human and the divine.
“Also in The Reappearance of the Christ it is stated that the one who works to produce at-one-ment, unification and fusion is generating a slowly growing will-to-unity within the Assembly of the United Nations. This being can only channel His energies through the mass consciousness or through a group conscious entity, such as the U.N.”136
The Bible teaches that there is a counterfeit to the church of Jesus Christ. There has existed as false religious system – an occult network that was created in Babel and has infiltrated all of the various religious groups. This chapter will document the components of this infiltration. While this chapter is primarily an analysis of how the harlot has infiltrated Evangelical Christian churches, these components are in place in organizations of any type that play harlot for Mystery Babylon.
There are three major components of a harlot church: adherence to the doctrine of Balaam, adherence to the doctrine of the Nicolaitans, and a Jezebel spirit. Descriptions of these three can be found in Revelation 2-3, Numbers 22-24, and 1 Kings. These three components are distinct but interrelated parts working together.
Adherence to the doctrine of Balaam.
Balaam was a prophet/soothsayer who lived during the time of Israel’s wanderings in the wilderness. For a time he received genuine words from God. Numbers 22-25 describe the story of Balaam. Balak wanted Balaam to curse Israel and offered them a lot of money. Balaam loved that money. At first God refused to let Balaam go to Balak, then let him go within the admonition that Balaam could not go beyond what God told him to. The Lord prohibited him from cursing Israel, so Balaam blessed Israel instead of cursing. Balaam almost lost out. Balak said this in response:
“Then Balak’s anger was aroused against Balaam, and he struck his hands together; and Balak said to Balaam, “I called you to curse my enemies, and look, you have bountifully blessed them these three times! Now therefore, flee to your place. I said I would greatly honor you, but in fact, the LORD has kept you back from honor.” So Balaam said to Balak, “Did I not also speak to your messengers whom you sent to me, saying,‘If Balak were to give me his house full of silver and gold, I could not go beyond the word of the LORD, to do good or bad of my own will. What the LORD says, that I must speak’? And now, indeed, I am going to my people. Come, I will advise you what this people will do to your people in the latter days.”Numbers 24:10-14
According to the story, Balaam left after prophesying what would happen to the Moabites in the last days. After that, Num 25 abruptly begins with the Moabites seducing the Israelites into sexual immorality and idolatry. Why the abrupt change in the story? Jesus Christ gives us the answer in Rev 2:14. The Lord Jesus says that Balaam taught Balak to put a stumbling block on Israel by seducing them into sexual immorality and idolatry. Balaam thought he had found a loophole. He was explicitly prohibited from cursing Israel but was not explicitly prohibited from teaching Balak how to tricking Israel into cursing themselves by violating God law and bringing judgment upon themselves. Although it was not recorded in the account in Numbers, sometime after Balaam prophesied and before he left he cut a deal with Balak: he would teach him how to trick the Israelites to curse themselves by violating God’s Law.
Balak heeded this advice. In chapter 25 the Moabite women seduce Israelite men. The story of Balaam reveals much about the doctrine of Balaam. The doctrine of Balaam has three parts.
Preachers of Balaam are in the ministry for what they can get. Preachers of Balaam may be in the ministry for money, sex, power, or celebrity status. They are self-centered preachers at heart even if they feint selflessness.
Preachers of Balaam will do their ministry under the color of obedience to the particulars God’s Law, when in reality their hearts and purposes are diametrically opposed to the will of God.
Preachers of Balaam will resort to various strategies of maliciously misinterpreting Scripture in order to twist the scripture into their mold. Just as Balaam wickedly parsed God’s word and twisted them away from the intended meaning to fit into his wicked agenda, modern day preachers of Balaam will twist words out of context and try to force the scripture into their pre-conceived mold. They will cherry pick scripture that can be twisted and evade passages that cannot be conformed to their agenda.
A Jezebel spirit
When Jesus condemned the Church in Thyatira for tolerating “That Jezebel,” He was referring to a local woman who operated with the same type of spirit and tactics as Jezebel, the wife of Ahab. The story of Jezebel and Ahab can be found in 1 Kings.
Jezebel was a Pheonician princess who was head of the mother goddess cult in Tyre. The King of Tyre gave her to King Ahab in marriage. As the wife of the King of Israel, she had no tolerance for the Lord God of Israel, but rather sought to convert Israel to idolatry and sexual immorality. She persecuted the prophets of God, ruthless hunting them down. Things got so bad that Obadiah hid 40 prophets in a cave and fed them in an effort to save their lives.
Jezebel was not only a domineering priestess, she was a schemer. She would resort to sinister schemes to get what she wanted. When Ahab wanted to buy Naboth’s vineyard and Naboth refused to sell, she set up Naboth to be falsely accused of blasphemy. Once he was stoned as punishment, then Ahab simply took the vineyard as his own.
People possessed by the Jezebel spirit have no tolerance for anyone who opposes them. They will seek any opportunity to entrap and otherwise take vengeance on those who get in their way. Those who are possessed by a Jezebel spirit strike fear in their enemies. The Bible depicts Elijah as being very bold when confronting kings and soldiers. The only time Elijah ever fled was from a vengeful Jezebel. They are enemies of God, but will, like Satan use God’s as a convenient weapon in making false and slanderous accusation. A modern day example of Jezebel in the political arena is Hillary Clinton.
Adherence to the doctrine of the Nicolaitans
Both Balaam and Jezebel have clear precedents in the Old Testament, making cross references easy. The Nicolaitans, however, don’t at first seem to have a cross reference. There are several common views as to who the Nicolaitans are. One view is that they were a gnostic sect known for their prolific sexual immorality and debauchery. Another view is that Nicolaitans were followers of Nicholas-the seventh deacon in the Jerusalem church who supposedly turned away from God. The third view is that Nicolaitan is a transliteration of Nike ( conquerer) + laites (people)Nike and Laites, compounded together, means conqueror of the people. While the solution of the mystery of the Nicolaitans is not as obvious as Balaam and Jezebel, the Bible leaves two clues.
First, we should dismiss the idea that the Nicolaitans were followers of Nicolas. Those who followed Balaam and Jezebel are clearly identified by the leaders they followed and not by the name given to the followers. If they were followers of Nicholas, then the Scriptures would plainly spell this out.
The second clue is that the doctrines and deeds of the Nicolaitans are singled out for hatred. Twice the doctrines and deeds of the Nicolaitans are described using the definite article “which thing I hate”. According to the Bible, God hates ALL sin because He is perfectly holy. Why would a God who hates all sin single out the doctrines and deeds of the Nicolaitans. The conclusion is that, while God hates all sin, He hates the doctrines and deeds of the Nicolaitans more than other sins. The key to solving the mystery of the Nicolaitans is to cross reference with passages which show the types of sins Jesus hates most.
During Jesus earthly ministry it becomes apparent which sins Jesus hates the most. The use of religion by tyrants as a tool to oppress people is the most heinous sin. When one studies the gospels, it becomes apparent that Jesus’ harshest rebukes are towards the religious leaders. Matthew 23 is a summary of His attitude about the doctrines and deeds of the religious leaders.
According to Matthew 23, Jesus rebukes the religious leaders of His day for oppressing the people
“For they bind heavy burdens, hard to bear, and lay them on men’s shoulders; but they themselves will not move them with one of their fingers.” Matt 23:4 NKJV
They loved the celebrity status. They loved being called “Rabbi”, “Father”, and “Teacher.” Jesus responded with these words:
“But you do not be called ‘Rabbi’; for ONE is your Teacher, the Christ, and you are all BRETHREN. Do not call anyone on earth your father; for ONE is your Father, He who is in heaven. And do not be called teachers; for ONE is your Teacher, the Christ. But he who is greatest among you shall be your servant. And whoever exalts himself will be humbled, and he who humbles himself will be exalted.” Matt23:8-12NKJV
Jesus Christ condemned the religious leaders setting themselves up as masters over the people. It was His intent to set people free. Free from sin and free from the slavery and tyranny of human despots. There was to be only one Master and One King. Jesus Christ is the King; we are to be equals as brothers, kings and priests. Leaders were to use their leadership in the service of the family of God, not the mastery of the family God.
In Mark 7:6-13, Jesus condemns the theological sophistry the religious leaders did to dethrone the rule of God’s Word to replace it with the opinions of men
“He answered and said to them, ‘Well did Isaiah prophesy of you hypocrites, as it is written:
“ ’This people honors Me with their lips, But their heart is far from Me. And in vain they worship Me, Teaching as doctrines the commandments of men. 8 For laying aside the commandment of God, you hold the tradition of men—the washing of pitchers and cups, and many other such things you do.’ He said to them, ‘All too well you reject the commandment of God, that you may keep your tradition. For Moses said, “Honor your father and your mother”; and, “He who curses father or mother, let him be put to death.” But you say, “If a man says to his father or mother, ‘Whatever profit you might have received from me Corban’—“ (that is, a gift to God), then you no longer let him do anything for his father or his mother, making the word of God of no effect through your tradition which you have handed down. And many such things you do.” Mark 7:6-13NKJV
The religious leaders of Jesus day had a peculiar device for subverting the Word, one that has since been adapted by both the roman Catholic and eastern Orthodox Churches. They contended that the written Law was not the only law God gave (in spite of the repeated admonition to write, and commit to memory the whole law). They contended that God revealed an oral law exclusively to the priests, and that this oral law or oral Torah as they call it was necessary in order to interpret the written law. This concept is found nowhere in the Old Testament and did not enter into Jewish theologyuntil the Jews had been exposed to Greek culture under Antiochus, who got his ideas ultimately from Mystery Babylon.
Antiochus persecution of the Jews resulted in two parties among the Jews: The Hellenistic Jews and the Orthodox Jews who were called Pharisees in the gospels. The Hellenistic Jews favored co-mingling of Greek culture into Judaism. The Pharisees sought to keep Judaism pure from Greek influences. While the Pharisees avoided the sexual immorality and the pantheistic metaphysics of the Greeks, they acquired their ecclesiology from the Greeks and mixed that in with Judaism. The Mystery Religions that the Greeks observed held to the notion that the divine principle was a principle of nature that manifested itself in natural evolution. These divine principles determined the way that nature evolves, and therefore the way human societies evolve.
Adherents of the mystery religion believe that the divine spark was present only in certain individuals and only those initiated into those mysteries have access to the divine spark. According to the mystery religions, the aristocrats and the priesthood have a monopoly on divine things.
This mixture of any Greek version of the mystery religion and Judaism produces a number of strains of gnosticism. The Church Fathers were consistently insisting that the Nicolaitans were an early Gnostic sect that laid heavy emphasis on lascivious living. The early church rightly rejected the hedonistic lifestyle of the Nicolaitans, but Jesus condemnation was centered at a different focus. Jesus hated the Gnostic doctrine that only certain people had access to God word and that everyone else had to give absolute allegiance to these leaders. These leaders were taking honor that belongs only to God. The Nicolaitans brought this doctrine into the church, and while their hedonistic lifestyle did not stay, their ecclesiology became the dominant ecclesiology in the church. The Nicolaitans were truly “Conquerors of the People.”
How these three work together
These three systems overlap. A harlot church flourishes in an environment where ministers who are in the ministry to advance their own selfish interests or their own name are rewarded and those who are zealous for the Lord are punished. Ministers who do not care about earthly rewards or punishments cannot be controlled by any combination of carrots and sticks, whereas those who do care can be controlled. The doctrine of the Nicolaitans is used to take power away from the people and give it to the few. It is easier to control a few and use them as leverage to control many than to try to directly control many. A Jezebel spirit schemes and stirs up persecution against those who cannot be bought nor deceived.
How does the Harlot religious system rule? According to Revelation, there are three weapons in her arsenal: Seducing those in leadership, intoxicating the masses, and persecuting the resistance.
Seducing those in leadership
The Harlot religious system seduces those in leadership with things like wealth, power, and favor. She offers these things quid pro quo in the same way that a prostitute offers the pleasures of sex for a fee. The purpose of this seduction is to lure leaders into compromise of their character and principles.
Leaders are vulnerable to this seduction. The more elite the leader, the more vulnerable that leader would be. Consider the opposing party leaders in Congress. Republican leaders and Democratic leaders represent opposing constituencies, yet they are co-participants in the community of congress. Leaders, then, have two allegiances: the group they lead, and the community of leaders. The harlot system seeks to use seduction to strengthen the allegiance of leaders to the community of leaders. The vast scale of modern wealth and power makes leaders easy prey to seduction as it results in opposing leaders having more in common with each other than other members of the groups they lead.
As leaders’ ties to the community of leaders grow stronger, the emphasis is increasingly on the community of leaders. This may involve cutting deals that involve compromise to gain favor from the community of leaders. The further this process continues the more it reinforces itself. As leaders strengthen the community of leaders at the expense of the groups they lead, the more power becomes centralized in the community of leaders. The more power is centralized, the pressure there is for leaders to make steeper compromises to either gain favor or keep favor of the community of leaders. Eventually leaders cease to have any real identification with the groups they supposedly represent.
Intoxicating the masses
It is written in Revelation they the harlot makes the inhabitants of the earth drunk with “the wine of her fornication.” In order to understand what this means, we must first understand what the text means by fornication. What fornication is it referring to? It is referring to the fornication with leaders. What, then, is the wine of her fornication? The wine is the fruit of her fornication with the leaders. Intoxicating the masses means putting them into a stupor so that they do not know what is happening to them. The leaders know what they are doing. This wine is the product of the copulation of these leaders and the harlot system. The leaders co-operate with the harlot in deceiving the people
Leaders co-operate with the harlot by “putting a spin on her agenda. There is a three prong agenda by which Mystery Babylon deceives people: promoting moral relativism, establishing an epistemological cartel, and manipulating people’s minds and emotions.
Moral Relativism serves the agenda of Mystery Babylon by disconnecting people from a strongly anchored reference point. Absolute morality does not depend on changing situations, but moral relativism hinges morality on situation. According to Barna, 64% of Americans believe morals were always dependent on situations.137 By believing that morals are relative to situations, people make themselves vulnerable to manipulation by elites because elites can manipulate situations to lead people to embrace the morality that the elites want to impose.
Once people are made to believe truth is relative, the elites then establish an epistemological cartel or monopoly on knowledge. Science is often portrayed as having a monopoly on knowledge. The predominant view of science today is what is called scientism, which is the belief that science is the authoritative source of all knowledge. Scientism turns science into a religion. Science has replaced traditional religion as the orthodoxy. According to Ryder, scientism can be used to subvert democracy into a technocratic elite.
“The abuse of scientism is most pronounced when it finds its way into public policy. A scientistic culture privileges scientific knowledge over all other ways of knowing. It uses jargon, technical language, and technical evidence in public debate as a means to exclude the laity from participation in policy formation. Despite such obvious transgressions of democracy, common citizens yield to the dictates of scientism without a fight. The norms of science abound in popular culture and the naturalized authority of scientific reasoning can lead unchecked to a malignancy of cultural norms. The most notorious example of this was seen in Nazi Germany where a noxious combination of scientism and utopianism led to the eugenics excesses of the Third Reich (Arendt, 1951)”.138
President Eisenhower warned of the dual danger of the government dominating science and using it to dominate people and also the danger of a scientistic elite taking over the government. His warning turned out to be very prophetic as both elitist takeover of government by scientistic elites and domination of science by government has occurred. All that is necessary to shut down a conversation is to say “We’re the experts.”
“Today, the solitary inventor, tinkering in his shop, has been overshadowed by task forces of scientists in laboratories and testing fields. In the same fashion, the free university, historically the fountainhead of free ideas and scientific discovery, has experienced a revolution in the conduct of research. Partly because of the huge costs involved, a government contract becomes virtually a substitute for intellectual curiosity. For every old blackboard there are now hundreds of new electronic computers. The prospect of domination of the nation’s scholars by Federal employment, project allocations, and the power of money is ever present — and is gravely to be regarded.
Yet, in holding scientific research and discovery in respect, as we should, we must also be alert to the equal and opposite danger that public policy could itself become the captive of a scientific-technological elite.
It is the task of statesmanship to mold, to balance, and to integrate these and other forces, new and old, within the principles of our democratic system — ever aiming toward the supreme goals of our free society. ”139
The folly of scientism is that it cannot justify science as the exclusive source of knowledge through appeal to science as that would be circular reasoning. Scientism also blurs the distinction between the scientific method and the mere opinions of scientists. The scientific method is based on formulating the hypothesis and testing that hypothesis through experiments and observation. Testing was traditionally understood as verification and falsification, but in 1959 Karl Popper published The Logic of Scientific Discovery. He asserted that nothing was ever verifiable through empirical observation by physical senses.140
This is because, in the absence of infinite knowledge, it is impossible that an observation of a pattern in x number of instances will apply universally to all possible instances of a given type of phenomena. Popper also destroyed the argument of induction as probability knowledge by arguing that induction provides no demarcation between rational leaps and mystical leaps of faith.141 Popper then proceeds to unveil his falsifiability criterion, which states that scientific hypothesis must be capable of being refuted by experience.142 Scientific truths, far from positively certain, are merely those that escape being falsified.
The dogmatic assertion of the current scientistic community about allegedly scientific topics amounts to a leap in mysticism. What is paraded as sciences is often no more than blind faith in the opinions of “scientists.”
“This attitude has been articulated in the other main group of theories of science, which rivals the essentialist understandings — namely, the “institutional” theories, which identify science with the social institution of science and its practitioners. The institutional approach may be useful to historians of science, as it allows them to accept the various definitions of fields used by the scientists they study. But some philosophers go so far as to use “institutional factors” as the criteria of good science. Ladyman, Ross, and Spurrett, for instance, say that they “demarcate good science — around lines which are inevitably fuzzy near the boundary — by reference to institutional factors, not to directly epistemological ones.” By this criterion, we would differentiate good science from bad science simply by asking which proposals agencies like the National Science Foundation deem worthy of funding, or which papers peer-review committees deem worthy of publication.
The problems with this definition of science are myriad. First, it is essentially circular: science simply is what scientists do. Second, the high confidence in funding and peer-review panels should seem misplaced to anyone who has served on these panels and witnessed the extent to which preconceived notions, personal vendettas, and the like can torpedo even the best proposals. Moreover, simplistically defining science by its institutions is complicated by the ample history of scientific institutions that have been notoriously unreliable.”143
Defining science by its institutions is a recipe for government control and establishment of state religion under the guise of science. If Popper is right that materialistic science cannot positively prove anything with any certainty, only partially falsify error144, then it follows that all positive assertions are a mystical leap of faith in material forces that prop up scientific laws. According to Hughes, “a defining characteristic of superstition is the stubborn insistence that something — a fetish, an amulet, a pack of Tarot cards — has powers which no evidence supports. From this perspective, scientism appears to have as much in common with superstition as it does with properly conducted scientific research. Scientism claims that science has already resolved questions that are inherently beyond its ability to answer.”145 Secular philosophies are, then, merely a mask for the occult. At about the same Hegel was promoting his dialectic method, materialism began to emerge. Hegel’s dialectic methodology began with a thesis, followed by its antithesis, from which emerges a synthesis that consume both thesis and antithesis. The synthesis of true opposites on a singular property is logically impossible. Complex systems can fake synthesis by mixing up different parts from two opposing systems to make up a third system.
History does not need to follow dialectic, as conflict can turn in any of a number of directions. Dialectic, however, is very useful for conspiracy. What began to happen, starting with Hegel, is that Materialism was fronted as an antithesis to Judeo-Christian ethos for the purpose of manipulating conflict so that an occult religion of Mystery Babylon would emerge as a synthesis. Specifically, random-chance evolution is fronted in antithesis against supernatural, intelligent creation. Occultists manipulate this conflict by promote pieces of their narrative on both sides of the conflict and then promoting their narrative of Intelligent Evolution (Intelligent Design) as the “synthesis” of both sides.
Manipulation often occurs in emotional forms. Governments of the world will use fear to manipulate people to support policies they are unlikely to support otherwise. According to a University of Michigan study, fear works best in cases when politicians have a large benefit from inducing fear or there little probability that the citizen will learn the truth or overcome their fear. The following table illustrates how fear is used. 146
|For the case where a fear message

relative to exogenous reputation costs.
Fear must be used strategically as it only works as long as people are ignorant of the truth or unable to overcome their fear in spite of knowing the truth. Once people know that the threat was bogus and have courage to act upon it, the deception ceases to have any power.
Fear is most often utilized in situations where a mass threat appears to exist and is used towards the end of huge power grabs by the government. Once a new power is grabbed, it is unlikely that the government will lose its new powers even if people find out they were victims of a colossal deception. The bombing of the Reichstag was an event used by the Nazis to scare people into giving them absolute power and allowing Hitler to become dictator. The Reichstag incident is the template for all such uses of fear by governments. Other episodes where great fear was either created or exploited by governments include the first Great Depression, the current depression, 9/11, and Sandy Hook shooting. In each of these cases governments initiated huge power grabs. People willingly gave up large chunks of liberties out of fear.
Fear is not enough. The wider range of emotions must be manipulated. People are being manipulated based on lusts and appetites. There are three basic techniques used to manipulate people’s appetites: Stir up their vain passions through worthless entertainment, and normalize-legalize destructive passions that create a need for government intervention, and then promote big government as the answer to the chaos created from out of control passions.
The intentional stirring up of passions is simply the application of Fruedo-Marxism as a method of conspiracy The Father of Freudo-Marxism, Herbert Marcuse, asserts that the repression of sexual instinct by civilization led to a destructive dialectic as “the very progress of civilization leads to the release of increasingly destructive forces”147, then its application in conspiracy is intentionally stir up sexual and other passions to fuel this destructive dialectic until it destroys “traditional values.” Once society is subjected to chaos, the door is opened for the elites to push their statist paradigm as the answer to the problem. The entertainment industry, particularly promotes every vile passion, and the media and many in the political arena push the vilest perversions as not only morally permissible, but a civil right. The current condition of popular culture leaves people both hyper-sexualized and hyper-violent. According to a study by the University of Buffalo, there is an increase in the incidence of sexualized images of men and an extreme increase in the incidence of hyper-sexualized images of women.148 The researchers concluded that this trend results in both an increase in domestic violence against women and a decrease in sexual satisfaction. I would add that these trends will also result in an increase in divorce, marital infidelity and single-parent homes.
In addition to hyper-sexualization, there is the cultivation of hyper-violent aggression through the popular culture. According to a longitudinal study by the University of Michigan, “men who were high TV violence viewers in childhood were convicted of crimes at over three times the rate of other men…. women who were high TV-violence viewers as children reported having punched, beaten, or choked another adult at over four times the rate of other women…childhood exposure to media violence is related to adult aggression.”149
The result of the hyper-sexualization and the hyper-violence in the popular culture is chaos that undermines both social norms, specifically Judeo-Christian morality, and traditional structures that impart these norms that are essential for civilized society. The resulting chaos a situation where the elite promote big government as the answer and people increasingly welcome the power grabs by the state. As the Judeo-Christian basis for morality and law is destroyed, the result is chaos followed by authoritarianism.150
This authoritarianism manifests itself as the police state that fights the “War on Terror,” which has brought us militarized police, legalized voyeurism and sexual assault at every airfield terminal, the prospect of indefinite detention of American citizens, assassination of American citizens by unmanned drones.
This authoritarianism also manifest itself in seemingly ordinary ways. The chaos created through hyper-sexualizing the population and eroding its grasp of social norms has resulted in dysfunctional people and dysfunctional families. This opens the door for government intervention in the most private areas of personal lives. These generally involve the use of social services and psychiatry. This opens the door to the political abuse of psychiatry in particular and science in general. As many big government answer involve the use of science to power the answer, there is an increasing temptation for government manipulation of science
We are now living in an age of increasing authoritarianism. Big government is promoted as the answer to every problem. Big government is brought under the guise of protecting people from themselves. This philosophy, called Paternalism151, is used to justify government meddling in every aspect of individual lives, ranging from requirement to wear seatbelt to regulating how many ounces of soft drinks one can consume in a day.
Persecuting the Resistance
The Harlot religious system persecutes the resistance. Because there are, in reality, only two religions instead of many; it is easy for her to marginalize the resistance. She has three techniques to accomplish this: Repressive Tolerance, the relativity of church-state separation, and the Alliance of Civilizations.
It should be apparent, from reading this book and studying comparative religions, that there are only two basic religious views. There is the evolutionary, naturalistic religions, which compass everything from Paganism and atheism, and teaches that god is a product of evolutionary processes and himself evolves.* Then there is transcendent, supernatural religion which begins with a self-existent godhead who has no need to evolve but creates the universe ex nihilo, using his own wisdom as the template for the dissemination of logical categories.
The perceived plurality of religions is because all of the various religious are but differences in interpretations of one of two great cosmologies. The political and cultural significance of the fact that all religions have one of two possible cores is that, when compared in terms of broad cosmology rather than particular distinctive, it then becomes apparent that we are not truly in a pluralistic society but in one where Judeo-Christian cosmology is an absolute minority. The result is that as the various religions of the world attain greater unity on the basis of the evolutionary, naturalistic cosmology, then Judeo-Christian thinking will be increasingly perceived as fringe. As Judeo-Christian thought becomes increasingly viewed as being on the fringe, the social pressure to marginalize believers in Judeo-Christian thought will increase.
Repressive Tolerance was an article written by Herbert Marcuse. The basic argument in the article is that tolerance, in practice, must be selective applied. Tolerance is applied only to “Progressive” ideologies and must include intolerance to intolerant,‘regressive” ideology. Marcuse’s idea was to use tolerance as a weapon of intolerance to marginalize unacceptable ideas. In his introductory paragraph he wrote
“THIS essay examines the idea of tolerance in our advanced industrial society. The conclusion reached is that the realization of the objective of tolerance would call for intolerance toward prevailing policies, attitudes, opinions, and the extension of tolerance to policies, attitudes, and opinions which are outlawed or suppressed. In other words, today tolerance appears again as what it was in its origins, at the beginning of the modern period–a partisan goal, a subversive liberating notion and practice. Conversely, what is proclaimed and practiced as tolerance today, is in many of its most effective manifestations serving the cause of oppression.”152
Marcuse saw the concept of tolerance as a weapon to marginalize established ethos and replace it with his own. His work, Eros and Civilization, made him a leading figure in Freudo-Marxism. Freudo-Marxism is the ideological base behind legalized abortion, feminism, and militant homosexuality. These movements would frequently use words like “intolerance”, “bigotry”, and “hate speech” to shut down the expression of opposing ideas. This false tolerance is enforced through corporate policies, academia, and, in a growing number of countries, restrictions of freedom of expression.
Many corporations have policies governing the manner and content of speech
“Many colleges and universities have speech codes. The current campus environment is very toxic to free speech. According to the American Association of Colleges and Universities, only 30% of students and 18% of faculty believe that the campus environment is a safe place to hold to unpopular opinions.”153
Furthermore, the report found that many college professionals feared that certain viewpoints may be marginalized on campus154
A growing number of countries have enacted legislation that that criminally outlaws anything that the government labeled as hate speech. This is the predominant legal scheme in Europe.155
According to Dr Agnès Callamard, Internnational law requires that hate speech be criminalized. ”Article 20(2) of the International Covenant on Civil and Political Rights (ICCPR) states: any advocacy of national, racial or religious hatred that constitutes incitement to discrimination, hostility or violence shall be prohibited by law.” 156
It is interesting to note that Dr Callamard, in this same article, notes that hate speech laws have done little to stop hateful attitudes while posing grave threats to freedom of expression.
“The relative effectiveness of these various approaches is difficult to assess. Yet, as the events in November 2005 in France demonstrate, the existence of fairly stringent hate speech legislations has not prevented young people in disenfranchised communities from rioting and by so doing demonstrating the failures of the French system to uphold the right to equality. Similarly, the (relative) absence of hate speech legislation does not mean that discrimination has been eradicated, or that freedom of expression is fully and completely protected, as the situation in the US underlines.
“Evidence gathered by Article 19 over the years does raise serious concerns, however, about the negative impact of hate speech court rulings on freedom of expression.” 157
This is no surprise, as the enforcement of “tolerance,” as envisioned by Marcuse and copied by so much of the Left, has nothing to do with tolerance as the end goal but its use in marginalizing ideas deemed as regressive by the Freudo Marxist conspiracy. The enforcement of tolerance is quite selective and arbitrary.158
The United Nations itself approves of the use of legislation to criminalize certain types of speech
“While it is generally true that security and human rights are two sides of the same coin, as one is not possible without the other, it would be difficult to deny that governments sometimes face difficult tradeoffs between the need to defend freedom of speech and the need to counter the spread of violent extremism. 34 Indeed, legislation prohibiting the dissemination of extremist content can be an effective instrument in confronting those who spread hate speech, and incite racism, xenophobia, and violence, as the response from the Belgian government advises.” 159
The Relativity of church-state separation
One thing that may puzzle some readers is how a religious conspiracy can rule secular societies. There are two holes in secularism that open the door for Mystery Babylon. The first is that the myth of a secular society actually opens the door for religious domination. The second is that church-state separation is relative.
The concept of a secular society is a myth. This is because a society is organized and governed by norms that define ethical conduct. Throughout most of the history of the human race and in most cultures, religion is the source of many of these norms. In a so-called secular society, the state and non-governmental organizations authorized by the state fulfill the norm-mediating function that religion performs in non-secular societies. The state, by default, is set up as god in a secular society. This is consistent with the meta-narrative of Mystery Babylon, and Hegel’s doctrine, that set up the state as god on earth.
Separation of church and state is relative and not absolute. What this means is that the state can establish a religious act “if it serves a secular purpose.” Secular purposes include the advancement of science, preservation of historic traditions, respect for cultural norms, and strengthening of security. These secular purposes are loopholes for advancing religion.
I would like to pay particular attention to the loophole provided by the advancement of science. In Everson vs Aguilard(1968), the United States Supreme Court ruled that any attempt to ban the teaching of evolution in public schools violates the Establish Clause of the First Amendment. The Supreme Court’s declaration that the Constitution mandates teaching of evolution results in a self-contradictory interpretation of the First Amendment. Religion is being mandated in the name of separation of church and state. This is because evolution, by its very nature, is a religious proposition. It asserts a doctrine of origins and a cosmology or meta-narrative concerning the very questions that are the focus of religion. Not only does the assertion of evolution enter into religious discussion, but it is also the basic principle of most religious perspectives.
Evolution is the great loophole through which a dominant religious hegemony can sail right past the Establishment Clause. The consciousness of evolution is seen as the advancement of science. The institution of a global “One-World” church will be heralded as the next stage of human social evolution. The coming mandate that all people worship the state and the coming “world-teacher” as god on earth will be seen as good for global security. The Secular Purpose Doctrine allows religion to be advanced, even mandated, as long as it can be justified on other grounds.
The Alliance of Civilizations and the war against Absolute Truth
The Alliance of Civilizations is a UN agency whose purpose is to combat “extremism.” The narrative that drives Alliance of Civilizations is that, instead of a clash of civilizations, the clash is between moderates and extremists. The obvious problem with this narrative is that the world isn’t really separated into one group called “moderates” and another group called “extremists.” The world simply isn’t structured this way. There are moderates and extremists in every worldview and meta-narrative that has ever existed. The divide is between these meta-narratives.
If the narrative was only inaccurate it would not matter much, but it is also a threat to liberty. The threat is in its definition of extremism. John Esposito, for example, defines extremism as exclusivism.
“the danger of religious extremism can be, even though it’s not necessarily violent, when it becomes exclusivist in which is basically says, ‘Not only is my faith right, but your faith is absolutely wrong, and not only is my faith right, but my faith position within my faith is right, and so another Muslim who disagrees with me is wrong,’ then you’re moving into a very dangerous position here because you’re bordering on what I would call theology of hate. That kind of mentality can easily be used by some, and it has been used by people like Osama Bin Laden, to legitimate military action at a certain point.” 160
What Esposito is saying is that if your belief system makes an absolute truth claim, then you are an extremist. Desmond Tutu implies that extremism is merely being dogmatic. Karen Armstrong goes even farther and identifies fundamentalists and believers in end-times prophecies as extremists.
Armstrong wants the UN to become heavily involved in religious matters. She wants to set up a movement to “…give guidelines as to how to interpret Scriptures, these texts that are being abused…”161 To this end, she set up the Charter for Compassion. The charter of Compassion is intended to be a focal point to unify all religions.
The Charter for Compassion is a masterful display of half-truth. It is the perversion of the Two Great Commands that Jesus taught. Jesus taught that the First Great Command is to “love the Lord your god with all your heart and all your soul and all your mind and all your strength.” The Second Great Command is “to love your neighbor as yourself” Armstrong seeks to apply the golden rule, which is based on the Second Great Command.
How do you love your neighbor as yourself. If a gunman starts shooting up the place where you are standing and you are armed, do you love your neighbor by shooting him to protect others or do you refuse to shoot him in your quest to love him as yourself. The Second Great command needs the First Great Command as a reference frame to define what it means to love your neighbor as yourself. In Judeo-Christian narrative, the Lord is that reference frame; in Armstrong’s narrative, she replaces the Lord with the United Nations.
Armstrong calls the United Nations the “bureaucracy”162 of the Charter of compassion. Armstrong wants the United Nations, with the “Heirarchy” and the coming “world-teacher”163 to govern the interpretation of the Bible. What she markets as Compassion is really a United Nations takeover of religion and a scheme to marginalize any resistance to Mystery Babylon’s claims that the United Nations, and its coming “world-teacher” are god on earth.
The Collapse of America as the economic superpower of the world will result in the shifting of this power to the Middle East. There are two Bible prophecies that foresaw this move. They are in Zech 5. The first one is in vs 1-4 which predicts the global economic depression and the second one is in Zech: 5-11 which tells that the Great Whore is moving to Iraq.
The Parable of the Flying Scroll – global depression
The prophecy of the global economic collapse in vs 1-4 is also an indictment on the systematic chicanery and the systematic thievery that mark the political and corporate world. God is judging the lies, spin and greed that dominate entire nations from the top down.
“Then I turned and raised my eyes, and saw there a flying scroll. And he said to me, “What do you see?” So I answered, “I see a flying scroll. Its length is twenty cubits and its width ten cubits.
“Then he said to me, “This is the curse that goes out over the face of the whole earth: ‘Every thief shall be expelled,’ according to this side of the scroll; and, ‘Every perjurer shall be expelled,’ according to that side of it.” “ I will send out the curse,” says the LORD of hosts; “ It shall enter the house of the thief And the house of the one who swears falsely by My name. It shall remain in the midst of his house And consume it, with its timber and stones.” Zech 5:1-4
The curse is an economic curse in that it liquidates or consumes property. Because the nations have gained their wealth by evil schemes, lies and often-legalized thievery they have forfeited their wealth. Where does this wealth go. According to the Proverb, it will eventually go to the just. However, it must make a pit stop. It will first be gobbled up by the Great Whore economic system. It is because she owns almost everything in the world that she will trade with all of the nations of the world.
The Woman in the Basket is the Great Whore
The prophecy of the Great Whore moving to Iraq is written in verses 5-11. The woman in this parable is none other than Mystery Babylon, the Great Whore. The text says that she is wickedness
Then the angel who talked with me came out and said to me, “Lift your eyes now, and see what this is that goes forth.” So I asked, “What is it?” And he said, “It is a basket that is going forth.” He also said, “This is their resemblance throughout the earth: Here is a lead disc lifted up, and this is a woman sitting inside the basket”; then he said, “This is Wickedness!” And he thrust her down into the basket, and threw the lead cover over its mouth.
Then I raised my eyes and looked, and there were two women, coming with the wind in their wings; for they had wings like the wings of a stork, and they lifted up the basket between earth and heaven. So I said to the angel who talked with me, “Where are they carrying the basket?” And he said to me, “To build a house for it in the land of Shinar; when it is ready, the basket will be set there on its base.”Zech 5:5-11
The text states she is carried by two women. The description fits that of angels. Out of all of the references to angels in the Scriptures, this is the only one that describes them in feminine terms. Whether these are literally females or whether this is merely a word picture is secondary: The picture being drawn here clearly suggests that the woman called wickedness, who is the personification of evil, is so seductive that the “male” angels cannot be trusted with her transport. God appoints two women to do this very special job.
The Great Whore is transported to Shinar (Sumer). Shinar is an ancient name for Babylon. The secret community that rules over the nations will be moved to her base in literal Babylon before the return of the Lord.
Rev 17 presents a picture of Mystery Babylon as a woman riding a beast. The beast is pictured as rising out of the sea
“Then one of the seven angels who had the seven bowls came and talked with me, saying to me, “Come, I will show you the judgment of the great harlot who sits on many waters, with whom the kings of the earth committed fornication, and the inhabitants of the earth were made drunk with the wine of her fornication.”
So he carried me away in the Spirit into the wilderness. And I saw a woman sitting on a scarlet beastwhich was full of names of blasphemy, having seven heads and ten horns. 4 The woman was arrayed in purple and scarlet, and adorned with gold and precious stones and pearls, having in her hand a golden cup full of abominations and the filthiness of her fornication”
“Then I stood on the sand of the sea. And I saw a beast rising up out of the sea, having seven heads and ten horns,[b] and on his horns ten crowns, and on his heads a blasphemous name. 2 Now the beast which I saw was like a leopard, his feet were like the feet of a bear, and his mouth like the mouth of a lion. The dragon gave him his power, his throne, and great authority. 3 And I saw one of his heads as if it had been mortally wounded, and his deadly wound was healed. And all the world marveled and followed the beast.” Revelation 13:1-3
The juxtaposition of these two passages paints the picture of Mystery Babylon as a woman riding the beast as it rises out of the sea. Mystery Babylon initially brings the beast system into power and controls it in the same way a rider controls the horse. Mystery Babylon needs the power of the beast to enforce her rule, but dominates the beast through manipulation.
The beast Mystery Babylon manipulates is a strange creature indeed. It has seven heads which stands for seven kingdoms. In ch I wrote that these stand for seven empires that Mystery Babylon controlled. This passage speaks of an eighth kingdom. This is the final form of the beast system. This kingdom is described as “was, and is not,” meaning that it was a form that existed prior to John’s time. In other words, it was a kingdom that pre-dates the Roman Empire.
“Here is the mind which has wisdom: The seven heads are seven mountains on which the woman sits. There are also seven kings. Five have fallen, one is, and the other has not yet come. And when he comes, he must continue a short time. The beast that was, and is not, is himself also the eighth, and is of the seven, and is going to perdition.” Rev 17:9-11
Who is this beast? There are three clues. It is a composite beast, being “of the seven.” It is distinct, being uniquely described as “going to perdition.” The third clue is found comparing Gen 11 to Rev 13. It is the original Babylon because Babylon was the only head that truly ruled the entire human race.
A comparison of Rev 13 to Dan 7 presents to us a picture of the modern world. Many commentators interpret Dan 7 as a repeat of Dan 2 prophecy. Dan 2 was a prophecy of dominant ancient powers: Babylon, Persia, Greece, and Rome. Verse 17 rules out the possibility that the prophecy applies to these nations. It says, “These great beasts, which are four, are four kings, which shall arise out of the earth.”(KJV) All four nations, represented by beasts Daniel saw, are kingdoms future to Daniel’s perspective at the time he received the vision. Babylon, Persia, Greece, and Rome were all in existence at the time the vision was revealed to Daniel, so these are not the nations in the vision. This vision is of four modern nations.
“In the first year of Belshazzar king of Babylon, Daniel had a dream and visions of his head while on his bed. Then he wrote down the dream, telling the main facts.Daniel spoke, saying, “I saw in my vision by night, and behold, the four winds of heaven were stirring up the Great Sea. And four great beasts came up from the sea, each different from the other. The first was like a lion, and had eagle’s wings. I watched till its wings were plucked off; and it was lifted up from the earth and made to stand on two feet like a man, and a man’s heart was given to it. Dan 7:1-4
The Lion has long been a symbol of England-Great Britain164. The eagle’s wings represent the United States. Their plucking represents the American Revolutionary War. The Lion represents Britain, and by extension, the English-speaking world. During the nineteenth, Great Britain, known as the empire in which the sun never sets, became the dominant power of earth. During the 20th century, Britain became eclipsed by the United States, who took her mother’s place as the dominant power on earth.
And suddenly another beast, a second, like a bear. It was raised up on one side, and had three ribs in its mouth between its teeth. And they said thus to it: ‘Arise, devour much flesh!’ Dan 7:5
The Bear has been long recognized as a symbol of Russia-Soviet Union165. The command to the bear to devour much flesh means to conquer much territory. The Russian Empire was one of the largest empires ever. Even today, Russia is the largest nation in the world in terms of land area. Russia also brought upon the world the evil legacy of Communism. Russia, and by extension the Communist world is represented by the bear.
After this I looked, and there was another, like a leopard, which had on its back four wings of a bird. The beast also had four heads, and dominion was given to it. Dan 7:6
The identification of the leopard is the least certain among the four beasts. Some have identified the Leopard with Germany. This author believes that the basis for the identification is in the primary military weapon used. The primary assault vehicle used in land invasion modern warfare is the tank. The most popular tank in the world is called the Leopard Tank. These were first produced in Germany, but have been adopted all over Europe. The Leopard 2 is the primary tank used in NATO operations166. The leopard represents Europe.
The four wings of the leopard represent the four primary cultural groups in continental Europe. They are the Germans, French, Spanish, and Italian.
The English-speaking world, Europe, and the Communist world are the first three beasts. These powers have shaped the modern world into the condition it is today. They redrew the map of much of the world. They came together after World War 2 to create a monster that was both different from any of them individually and a composite of all of them. A comparison of Revelation 13 and Dan 7 further identifies the beast. Dan 7 shows prophetic images of future kingdoms. Both are prophecies of a ten horned beast that would be the final beast to reign before the Lord sets up His physical kingdom on earth.
After this I saw in the night visions, and behold, a fourth beast, dreadful and terrible, exceedingly strong. It had huge iron teeth; it was devouring, breaking in pieces, and trampling the residue with its feet. It was different from all the beasts that were before it, and it had ten horns. Dan 7:7-8
“Then I stood on the sand of the sea. And I saw a beast rising up out of the sea, having seven heads and ten horns, and on his horns ten crowns, and on his heads a blasphemous name. 2 Now the beast which I saw was like a Leopard, his feet were like the feet of a bear, and his mouth like the mouth of a lion. The dragon gave him his power, his throne, and great authority.” Rev 13:1-2
The United Nations is the only organization that fits these criteria. It was formed in 1945 and supported with the help of Europe, the English-speaking world, and the Communist world. The United Nations is a composite of the major powers and also different from these powers. The United Nations is a Satanic organization.
The United Nations is currently organized as an organization whose charter is porous enough to allow it do anything it wants. However, the UN lacks the military and economic teeth necessary for it to act as a strong central government. This is by design. The UN was intended to be no more than to provide a cloak of legitimacy to rubber-stamp the actions of the “Hierarchy” and her corporate and political cronies, to their benefit and at our expense.
The occult networks of Mystery Babylon currently seduce key players in business and politics.The Bible predicts a two phase destruction of this system. The first phase involves a shift in the balance of power. The second phase involves the sudden liquidation of the world’s wealth as Christ becomes visible in the clouds.
There is a fault line in the coalition of networks that comprise Mystery Babylon. The fault line is between the networks that descended from Plethon and those that did not. Plethon was taught the Babylonian Mysteries by Islamist Hermeticists. During the period of European dominance during the colonial period, European culture and political ideas were readily replicated all over the world, allowing Mystery Babylon to infiltrate globally.
The Dawn of the 21st Century is witnessing the relative decline of European power. There are two emerging blocs of power that are emerging. They would be East Asia and the Middle East. In East Asia, the traditional political narratives are gone, but in the Middle East they are strong. There are only two extant political narratives today that are outside of the Plethon Mystery Babylon matrix. They are the Judeo-Christian Libertarianism brought to us by John Knox, Samuel Rutherford, and others. The other is Islamism.
Judeo-Christian Libertarianism has been largely marginalized over the past 15 years or so as a result of the “Culture War” with Freudo-Marxism. The followers Freudo-Marxism Left have entered a marriage of convenience with Islamists, forcing Judeo-Christian Libertarians to fight a war on two fronts. This coupled with co-belligerence with Neo-Conservatives, resulted in Judeo-Christian Libertarians being weakened and marginalized.
Islamism is the predominant political narrative throughout most of the Middle East. Beneath the thin veneer of Islamic fundamentalism is a militaristic Hermeticism. Rev 17:16-17 describes how Islamists destroy Mystery Babylon
“And the ten horns which you saw on the beast, these will hate the harlot, make her desolate and naked, eat her flesh and burn her with fire. For God has put it into their hearts to fulfill His purpose, to be of one mind, and to give their kingdom to the beast, until the words of God are fulfilled” Rev 17:16-17
The ten horns are ten nations who give their power to the United Nations beast, and specifically, the antichrist. Scriptural Proof that an emerging Islamist Empire is the ten horns involves first proving that Gog is the Antichrist, and then proving that his allies are Islamist, or soon to be Islamist, countries.
Gog is the Antichrist
Ezekiel 38-39 reveals the end times invasion of Israel by an international coalition of nations led by a leader named here as Gog. The key to identifying Gog as the Antichrist is to show that the Ezekiel war ends with the battle of Armageddon on the Great Day of God’s wrath. This can be done by comparing Ezekiel with other passages known to refer to Armageddon. The comparison between Rev 16 and Ezekiel 38-39 will prove that Gog is the Antichrist.
These Judgments are on the Day of the Lord. They are against ALL nations, indicating that the second phase of the war has begun. Compare the following two passages for similarities. Both the Final battle against Gog and the Armageddon involves many common events including the following:
- An earthquake so severe that a leveling of all of the world’s mountains and cities occurs.
- Great hailstones falling out of the sky
- The gathering of armies from all over the earth
- Raining down blood upon the earth, contaminating all waters
- Inflicting pestilence – persistent sores
- Scorching people with fire
- Birds of carrion invited to feed on the dead bodies of men and animals.
|An earthquake so severe that it levels all of the world’s mountains and cities occurs.|
|and there was a great earthquake, such as was not since men were upon the earth, so mighty an earthquake, and so great. 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. AND EVERY ISLAND FLED AWAY, AND THE MOUNTAINS WERE NOT FOUND.||Surely in that day there shall be a great shaking in the land of Israel; So that the fishes of the sea, and the fowls of the heaven, and the beasts of the field, and all creeping things that creep upon the earth, and all the men that are upon the face of the earth, shall shake at my presence, and the MOUNTAINS SHALL BE THROWN DOWN, AND THE STEEP PLACES SHALL FALL, AND EVERY WALL SHALL FALL TO THE GROUND|
|Revelation 16:18-20||Ezekiel 38:19-20
|Great hailstones falling out of the sky|
|AND THERE FELL UPON MEN A GREAT HAIL OUT OF HEAVEN, EVERY STONE ABOUT THE WEIGHT OF A TALENT: and men blasphemed God because of the plague of the hail; for the plague thereof was exceeding great||And I will plead against Him with PESTILENCE AND WITH BLOOD; And I will rain upon, and upon his bands, and upon the many people that are with him, an overflowing rain, and GREAT HAILSTONES, fire, and brimstone|
|Revelation 16:21||Ezekiel 38|
|The gathering of armies from all over the earth|
|And I saw three unclean spirits like frogs come out of the mouth of the dragon, and out of the mouth of the beast, and out of the mouth of the false prophet. FOR THEY ARE THE SPIRITS OF DEVILS, WORKING MIRACLES, WHICH GO FORTH UNTO THE KINGS OF THE EARTH AND OF THE WHOLE WORLD, TO GATHER THEM TO THE BATTLE OF THAT GREAT DAY OF GOD ALMIGHTY||AND I WILL CALL FOR A SWORD AGAINST HIM THROUGHOUT ALL MY MOUNTAINS, SAITH THE LORD GOD: EVERY MAN’S SWORD SHALL BE AGAINST HIS BROTHER.|
|Revelation 16:13-14||Ezekiel 38:21(God owns all mountains)|
|Raining down blood upon the earth, contaminating all waters|
|AND THE SECOND ANGEL POURED OUT HIS VIAL UPON THE SEA; AND IT BECAME AS THE BLOOD OF A DEAD MAN: AND EVERY LIVING SOUL DIED IN THE SEA. And the third angel poured out his vial upon the rivers and fountains of waters; and they became BLOOD. And I heard the angel of the waters say, Thou art righteous, O Lord, which art, and wast, and shalt be, because thou hast judged thus. For they have shed the blood of saints and prophets, and thou hast given them blood to drink; for they are worthy.||And I will plead against Him with PESTILENCE AND WITH BLOOD; And I will rain upon, and upon his bands, and upon the many people that are with him, an overflowing rain, and GREAT HAILSTONES, fire, and brimstone|
|Revelation 16:3-6||Ezekiel 38:22|
|Inflicting pestilence – persistent sores|
|And the first went, and poured out his vial upon the earth; and there fell a noisome and grievous sore upon the men which had the mark of the beast, and upon them which worshipped his image. AND THE SECOND ANGEL POURED OUT HIS VIAL UPON THE SEA; AND IT BECAME AS THE BLOOD OF A DEAD MAN: AND EVERY LIVING SOUL DIED IN THE SEA.||And I will plead against Him with PESTILENCE AND WITH BLOOD; And I will rain upon, and upon his bands, and upon the many people that are with him, an overflowing rain, and GREAT HAILSTONES, fire, and brimstone|
|Revelation 16:2-3||Ezekiel 38:22|
|Scorching people with fire|
|And the fourth angel poured out his vial upon the sun; and power was given unto him to scorch men with fire…|
|Revelation 16:8||Ezekiel 38:22|
|Birds of carrion are invited to feed on dead bodies of men and animals|
|And I saw an angel standing in the sun; and he cried with a loud voice, saying to all the fowls that fly in the midst of heaven, COME AND GATHER YOURSELVES TOGETHER UNTO THE SUPPER OF THE GREAT GOD; THAT YE MAY EAT THE FLESH OF KINGS, AND THE FLESH OF CAPTAINS, AND THE FLESH OF MIGHTY MEN, and the flesh of horses, and of them that sit on them, and the flesh of all men, both free and bond, both small and great.||And, thou son of man, thus saith the Lord GOD; SPEAK UNTO EVERY FEATHERED FOWL, AND TO EVERY BEAST OF THE FIELD, ASSEMBLE YOURSELVES, AND COME; GATHER YOURSELVES ON EVERY SIDE TO MY SACRIFICE THAT I DO SACRIFICE FOR YOU, EVEN A GREAT SACRIFICE UPON THE MOUNTAINS OF ISRAEL, THAT YE MAY EAT FLESH, AND DRINK BLOOD. YE SHALL EAT THE FLESH OF THE MIGHTY, AND DRINK THE BLOOD OF THE PRINCES OF THE EARTH, of rams, of lambs, and of goats, of bullocks, all of them fatlings of Bashan. And ye shall eat fat till ye be full, and drink blood till ye be drunken, of my sacrifice which I have sacrificed for you.|
|Revelation 19:17-18||Ezekiel 39:17-19|
Rev 16-19 describes the Great Day of God’s wrath that ends at Armageddon when Jesus Christ destroys the antichrist, who leads the world’s armies into battle. There are numerous events that match with great detail Ezekiel’s description of God’s wrath against Gog: There is an earthquake in Israel that starts a chain reaction that all mountains and all urban structures (cities, walls) to collapse. There will also at this time fall from the sky blood, fire, and hail. This battle will result in many dead soldiers. In both Ezekiel and Revelation God invites birds of carrion to feast on the dead bodies.
The detailed match between the events of Rev 16-19 and Ezekiel 38-39 proves at least that the final battle in the Ezekiel invasion where God destroys Gog is the same battle as the Battle of Armageddon in the Great Day of God’s wrath against Gog. This identifies Gog as the Antichrist and the regional coalition that he uses to start the war as the ten horns.
The Ten Horns Identified as Islamist Nations
The ten horns are the ten plus nation coalition that puts the Antichrist into power. They join forces to empower the Antichrist to overthrow the Great Whore to accomplish a major shift in the balance of power in the world-system.
“And the TEN HORNS which you saw on the beast, these will hate the harlot, make her desolate and naked, eat her flesh and burn her with fire. For God has put it into their hearts to fulfill His purpose, TO BE OF ONE MIND, AND TO GIVE THEIR KINGDOM TO THE BEAST, until the words of God are fulfilled”Revelation 17:16-17 NKJV
In the last chapter, I wrote that the Gog-led invasion in Ezekiel is the same as the Anti-Christ led invasion at Armageddon. If Gog is the Antichrist, then the alliance of nations that united with Gog is the ten horns. This is the key to identifying the nations instrumental in setting up the beast system.
I shall not lay an emphasis on putting a perfect correspondence of exactly ten nations to ten horns. There are several reasons for it. One remote possibility is that ten should be taken as a figure and that there may be many more nations involved. It is also very likely that ten nations will lead the coalition but that it will be perceived as much larger coalition-ten nations and an unknown number of satellite nations. This is where the warning against leaning to hard on tying interpretation to current events would apply. The third is that the region involved is not very stable. The map of this region could dramatically change in just a few years.
This article will identify these nations by identifying the ethnic groups and lands mentioned in Ezekiel and drawing conclusions from that. Here is the passage in Ezekiel that list the actors in this war:
“And the word of the LORD came unto me, saying, Son of man, set thy face against GOG, THE LAND OF MAGOG, THE CHIEF PRINCE OF MESHECH AND TUBAL, and prophesy against him, And say, Thus saith the Lord GOD; Behold, I am against thee, O Gog, the chief prince of Meshech and Tubal: And I will turn thee back, and put hooks into thy jaws, and I will bring thee forth, and all thine army, horses and horsemen, all of them clothed with all sorts of armour, even a great company with bucklers and shields, all of them handling swords: PERSIA, ETHIOPIA, and LIBYA with them; all of them with shield and helmet: GOMER, AND ALL HIS BANDS; the house of TOGARMAH OF THE NORTH QUARTERS, AND ALL HIS BANDS: and many people with thee.” Ezekiel 38:1-6 KJV
The land of Magog There is a great deal of evidence that Magog was the ancestor of the Scythians. The Scythians are the ancestors of the Russians. However, Magog is the one and only power that is named by land. It is the occupants of the land of Magog, not necessarily the people of Magog that invade Israel.
At the time of Ezekiel’s writing the Scythians-the descendants of Magog occupied a wide area in central Asia167. They occupied land from the Ukraine in the west to Caspian sea in the east. Gog is indentified as coming from this land. This area is now occupied by Ukraine, The Caucasus (Southern Russia, Georgia, Armenia, Azerbaijan ), Kazakstan, Uzbekistan, Turkmenistan and possibly western China and western Mongolia.
While Magog is identified as the land that Gog rules, Meshech and Tubal are identified as the people groups he leads. Meshesh and Tubal were sons of Japheth. Their descendants eventfully migrated into the land of Magog.168
Persia is modern day Iran169. This one is certain. What is not certain is the extent of Iran’s influence. Iran at the time of the invasion may include Iraq, Afghanistan, and Syria. When American and troops leave Iraq and Afghanistan prematurely Iran will fill the void and Iran already controls Syria through its involvement in Hezbollah. They may be satellites or part of Iran.
Biblical Ethiopia was Cush170 which was south of Egypt and corresponds to northern Sudan. Sudan is an Islamist stronghold now committing genocide of Christians and would be eager to become involved in invading Israel. Biblical Ethiopia might also include other nations around the horn of Africa who descended from Cush, including Somalia and modern Ethiopia.
Libya (Phut) is… Libya171. Libya has had an Anti-American government for years. While Ghadafy is currently seeking peace with America that could swiftly change the moment the government changes hands or if the balance of power changes. Libya could easily revert back to hostility if the government senses American weakness or that she may find protection in by powerful enemies of America. The establishment of Gog’s coalition may very well be just the situation that draws Libya into the conflict.
The descendants of Gomer are likely Eastern Europeans, which are increasingly becoming a hotbed for Islamist terrorism172.
Togarmah is the ancestor of the Turkic peoples of the world173. The phrase ‘of the north quarters’ means the northern settlements. This refers to the Turkic areas of central Asia: Kazakstan, Kyrgyzstan, Tajikistan, Turkmenistan, and Uzbekistan. It is uncertain whether the phrase ‘all his bands’ includes Turkey, the world’s most populous Turkish nation, or just the Turkish nations farther north.
All of these areas are either controlled by Islamists or soon will be if trends continue. An Islamist ten nation alliance will back a head of state somewhere in the Caucasus in what is first a regional alliance against Israel. This alliance becomes the basis of campaign to install this leader as Secretary-General of the United Nations. This leader transforms the United Nations into the dreaded dragonous Beast and he becomes the coming the global dictator commonly known as the Antichrist.. This will be the final form of the Babylon Beast System which Christ Jesus will destroy at his coming.
The Islamic Madhi is the Anti-christ. Historic trends, clues given in Bible prophecy and a comparison of Biblical and Islamic eschatology will reveal that the Antichrist will first appear as the Mahdi, the Islamic Messiah. This so-called Mahdi will appear to be a good Muslim but He is really an occultist He will eventually be revealed as Satan in the flesh. He will be followed by most of the world for a season but the righteous will resist him and embrace God’s true Messiah.
Islam is gaining ground in Europe and Russia as well as numerically throughout the world. There are 1.4 billion Muslims throughout the world. In Africa, Asia, the Middle East and Europe there are demands upon the legal system to accommodate Islamic law or sharia law by setting up religious courts. Islam is the best represented religion at the United Nations.
In order to set up the Mahdi as the antichrist there must a widely distributed foundation of support. While it is not necessary for the Mahdi to be a true Muslim it is necessary for him to be perceived as such. The growth of both Islamic populations and the existence of a unified Islamic empire will provide the power base that will enable the Mahdi to become the Antichrist.
Another trend is that a growing number of Muslims are being radicalized. Currently only about 10% of the world’s Muslims are of the radical type or otherwise politically motivated to overthrow the earth. Europe currently has a policy that weakens peaceful Muslims while viewing radicals as a protected class. They are fiercely rushing to ban women from wearing viels174 (i.e. theNetherlands175) while prosecuting thosewho warn about the Islamist threat176 for committing hate speech against Islamist radicals.
Gog is Mahdi and the Antichrist. The nations that set up the beast system are now predominately Islamic. From these nations there will emerge an Islamist Empire. This empire is a regional caliphate ruling from Western Europe to Pakistan. This Islamic empire is the ten horns that install Gog as the Antichrist. This regional Islamic Empire will use their votes and influence at the United Nations to install the Mahdi as Secretary-General of the United Nations. As the Antichrist, The Mahdi will turn the United Nations into the Final Beast, This will be a worldwide Islamist empire.
The Antichrist does not rise through overwhelming military power as some believe. He uses a minimal of military power. He uses propaganda to trick people into believing he is all powerful.
“And I saw one of his heads as it were wounded to death; and his deadly wound was healed: and all the world wondered after the beast. AND THEY WORSHIPPED THE DRAGON WHICH GAVE POWER UNTO THE BEAST: AND THEY WORSHIPPED THE BEAST, SAYING, WHO IS LIKE UNTO THE BEAST? WHO IS ABLE TO MAKE WAR WITH HIM? And there was given unto him a mouth speaking great things and blasphemies; and power was given unto him to continue forty and two months. And he opened his mouth in blasphemy against God, to blaspheme his name, and his tabernacle, and them that dwell in heaven. 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. And all that dwell upon the earth shall worship him, whose names are not written in the book of life of the Lamb slain from the foundation of the world.” Revelation 13:3-8 KJV
The text doesn’t say that no one could “… make war …” against the beast, but that people would say that no one would be able to make war against the beast. The beast is given power to make war against the saints only after he fools people into believing he is all powerful, not before. The Antichrist gains overwhelming military power by tricking the nations of the world into giving it to him. Daniel 8:8-25 describes how Satan is working in the world through the Antichrist system or the little horn. Satan seek to put install a world leader through sinister schemes.
“Therefore the he goat waxed very great: and when he was strong, the great horn was broken; and for it came up four notable ones toward the four winds of heaven. And out of one of them came forth a little horn, which waxed exceeding great, toward the south, and toward the east, and toward the pleasant land. And it waxed great, even to the host of heaven; and it cast down some of the host and of the stars to the ground, and stamped upon them… …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. AND HIS POWER SHALL BE MIGHTY, BUT NOT BY HIS OWN POWER: and he shall destroy wonderfully, and shall prosper, and practise, and shall destroy the mighty and the holy people. 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 8:8-10,23–25 KJV
New King James Version translates “dark sentences” as “sinister schemes” The man of sin is not installed by his own power but by scheming to manipulate the power of others He will launch craft schemes. He will use “peace” as a weapon of war. (i.e. The Antiwar movement) He will use tolerance as a means to punish those He refuses to tolerate (i.e. speech codes ) This is confirmed in the New Testament.
“Let no man deceive you by any means: for that day shall not come, except there come a falling away first, and that man of sin be revealed, the son of perdition; Who opposeth and exalteth himself above all that is called God, or that is worshipped; so that he as God sitteth in the temple of God, shewing himself that he is God. Remember ye not, that, when I was yet with you, I told you these things? And now ye know what withholdeth that he might be revealed in his time.
“For the mystery of iniquity doth already work: only he who now letteth will let, until he be taken out of the way. And then shall that Wicked be revealed, whom the Lord shall consume with the spirit of his mouth, and shall destroy with the brightness of his coming: EVEN HIM, WHOSE COMING IS AFTER THE WORKING OF SATAN WITH ALL POWER AND SIGNS AND LYING WONDERS, AND WITH ALL DECEIVABLENESS OF UNRIGHTEOUSNESS IN THEM THAT PERISH; BECAUSE THEY RECEIVED NOT THE LOVE OF THE TRUTH, THAT THEY MIGHT BE SAVED. AND FOR THIS CAUSE GOD SHALL SEND THEM STRONG DELUSION, THAT THEY SHOULD BELIEVE A LIE: That they all might be damned who believed not the truth, but had pleasure in unrighteousness.”
2 Thessalonians 2:3-12 KJV
The Antichrist’s schemes will be effective because most people do not love the truth. In their thinking truth is relative and subordinate to the situations, perspectives, and prejudices. Without an anchor for their thoughts, their minds can be manipulated by schemes, because they do not have a foundation for rational thought they cannot spot counterfeit facts, counterfeit (or satanic) miracles, nor can the discern the logical fallacies inherent in schemes. When people see the Satanic miracles and hear Satan’s propaganda they will be given over to be deceived. When they see the Mahdi-Antichrist or the counterfeit Jesus command fire to come down from heaven among other things, the will say of him”…Who is like unto the beast? Who is able to make war with him? …”
The Mahdi will rise to power through propaganda and schemes as the Antichrist does. Modern day Islamists learned both their propaganda techniques and much of its content from the Nazis. They are currently infiltrating forums of various Leftist groups177 posing as good liberals and putting out anti-war, antigovernment propaganda. It is the Islamists who framed 911178 as a government conspiracy in spite of the fact that Osama bin Laden has the technical skills and connections179 to perform everything the government conspiracy theories allege.
The slickest piece of propaganda that the Mahdi and his counterfeit Jesus will use is Islamic eschatology180. Islamic eschatology is an anti-parallel to Bible prophecy. As Bible end-time prophecies are literally fulfilled concerning the Antichrist and the False Prophet are literally fulfilled the so-called Mahdi will pass these off as fulfillments of Islamic prophecy concerning the Mahdi and the Islamic Jesus8. Islamic eschatology will be used to trick the world to supporting and ultimately worship the Antichrist.
Comparative Eschatology Reveals that the Mahdi is the antichrist. A comparison of Christian and Islamic eschatology shows that the Mahdi is the. The good guys of Islamic eschatology are the bad guys in Christian eschatology. Islamic eschatology covers an end-times story similar to that of Judeo-Christian prophecy but from the opposing perspective. The Antichrist and false prophet, portrayed in the Bible as the human archenemy of God, is portrayed as a hero and man of God in Islam.
This is best understood by taking the three main characters in Islamic end-times prophecy in context. The Mahdi is Islam’s messiah figure. He is assisted by the Muslim Jesus. The Muslims will claim that He is Jesus Christ but this false Jesus will repudiate Christianity and wage war against Jews and Christians. This Muslim Jesus will look “… like a lamb, and he spake as a dragon… (Rev 13:11-17).’ The Islamic Jesus is the false prophet. As the false prophet does miracles, points to the Antichrist, glorifies the Antichrist and causes the world to worship and pledge allegiance to the Antichrist by taking the mark of the beast- so the Islamic Jesus will do satanic miracles, glorify the Mahdi and cause the world to worship and pledge allegiance to the Mahdi by taking a mark of prostration.
The villain of Islamic eschatology is called the Dajjal. Islamic prophecy gives a very fanciful and not realistic description of the Dajjal. Muslims believe that he will be blind in one eye, with a fingernail protruding out of the blind eye. There are however two characteristics of the Dajjal that are significant here. He will claim to be Allah (God) and that he is the Jewish Messiah. This identifies the Dajjal with the real Jesus Christ that Jews and Christians know.
The Antichrist will come to power by claiming to be al Mahdi. He will use Islamic eschatology to deceive the world into pledging their allegiance to him. He will eventually claim God and demand worship.(Christian and Islamic objections notwithstanding) He will then, in the name of Islam, launch the most evil reign of terror the world has ever seen. The wickedness and atrocities is so bad the Jesus Christ the Jewish-Christian Messiah and deliverer of Israel will return to stop the madness. He will destroy the Caliphate and send the Mahdi-Antichrist and the false Islamic Jesus alive into the Lake of Fire.
How are we to respond to this information? In this author’s view, there are three responses that the reader should make after reading this book. The first is that God’s people can confidently the sufficiency and superiority of the Biblical narrative in explaining the world we live. The second is that God’s people should disengage from Mystery Babylon in order to escape God’s wrath that will be poured out on Mystery Babylon. The third is that God’s people should disengage from Mystery Babylon so that the relationships in the family of God may flourish.
Proclaiming the gospel with confidence
The historical evidence that confirms the narrative of Mystery Babylon shows that the Biblical meta-narrative provides a superior explanation of reality. This is because the Bible is divinely inspired. The Lord both sees and declares the end from the beginning. The explanatory of the Mystery Babylon narrative is found in the divine origin of the prophecy.
Escaping God’s Wrath
Rev warns us to disengage from Mystery Babylon so that we might not suffer her plagues. The nations have become drunk in the wine of her fornication, meaning that they have believed her lies.
“…Babylon the great is fallen, is fallen, and has become a dwelling place of demons, a prison for every foul spirit, and a cage for every unclean and hated bird! For all the nations have drunk of the wine of the wrath of her fornication, the kings of the earth have committed fornication with her, and the merchants of the earth have become rich through the abundance of her luxury.
“And I heard another voice from heaven saying, “Come out of her, my people, lest you share in her sins, and lest you receive of her plagues. For her sins have reached to heaven, and God has remembered her iniquities. Render to her just as she rendered to you] and repay her double according to her works; in the cup which she has mixed, mix double for her. In the measure that she glorified herself and lived luxuriously, in the same measure give her torment and sorrow; for she says in her heart, ‘I sit as queen, and am no widow, and will not see sorrow.’ 8 Therefore her plagues will come in one day—death and mourning and famine. And she will be utterly burned with fire, for strong is the Lord God who judgesher” Revelation 18:2-8
Disengagement begins with rejecting her lies and refusing to be manipulated. We need to understand the real reasons behind movements in our culture rather than accept the slick spin put to things. For example, when people speak of church-state separation and a “secular society,” what they really mean is the promotion of a religion where the state is exalted as god on earth.* Many of the philosophies of Mystery Babylon are marketed as defenses of individual rights, but in reality are really statist schemes to displace one narrative with another.
Freudo-Marxists, for example, say they want government out of the bedroom and out of reproductive decisions. However, the intense of government-sponsored same-sex marriage and public funding of abortions indicates that they want the state excessively involved in abortion and sexual issues. We must see through the spin and speak truth to power.
God’s people must reject any confidence in groups perceived to be useful co-belligerents against Mystery Babylon. Many Evangelical Christians, for example, have affiliated with the Republican Party hoping to stop the Freudo-Marxist attack on Judeo-Christian Morality. The upper leadership of all groups that have a national or global profile has been infiltrated by Mystery Babylon. Instead of playing co-belligerent with other groups, we need to form our own network of communities Coming out from among her is but the first stage in the social re-orientation of God’s people.
Growing relationships in the Family of God
We are called to disengage from mystery Babylon with a promise. We are not called to be anti-social loners, but from one community into another.
“Do not be unequally yoked together with unbelievers. For what fellowship has righteousness with lawlessness? And what communion has light with darkness? And what accord has Christ with Belial? Or what part has a believer with an unbeliever? And what agreement has the temple of God with idols? For you are the temple of the living God. As God has said: ‘I will dwell in themand walk among them.I will be their God,And they shall be My people.’ Therefore ‘Come out from among themAnd be separate, says the Lord.Do not touch what is unclean,And I will receive you.I will be a Father to you,And you shall be My sons and daughters,Says the Lord Almighty.’ ” 2 Cor 6:14-18
The reader should note that this passage was not written to unbelievers, but to Christians – to people who already have a relationship with God. Yet the text speaks in future tense when it says “And I will receive you.I will be a Father to you,And you shall be My sons and daughters,Says the Lord Almighty.” Believer already have the position of Father-child relationship, but mingling with the idolatry of Mystery Babylon blocks the fellowship that flows from that relationship. We have forfeited many of the benefits of the relationship we have with God because we co-mingle with the abominations and philosophies of Mystery Babylon. In fact, the root sin of Mystery Babylon is forming deep connections with unbelievers, which the Bible calls “being unequally yoked”
There are three benefits to forsaking Mystery Babylon: The Revelation of God as our Father, our own revelation as children of God, and brotherly love connections with the sons and daughters of God.
The Revelation of God as our Father
Mystery Babylon advocates the worship of a different God than the God revealed in Scripture; therefore affection or submission to Mystery Babylon is idolatry. Idolatry is spiritual adultery according to Ezekiel 16 and Ezekiel 23. Lev 17:7 refers to it as playing the harlot before devils. The reason Christians sees little supernatural power is that their life is a cocktail of spiritual adultery. Spiritual adultery interferes with our relationship with God in the same way that physical adultery hinders the expression of love in an earthly marriage to a spouse. God is looking for a faithful individuals and a faithful people so that He can show Himself strong.
“ And at that time Hanani the seer came to Asa king of Judah, and said to him: ‘Because you have relied on the king of Syria, and have not relied on the Lord your God, therefore the army of the king of Syria has escaped from your hand. ‘ Were the Ethiopians and the Lubim not a huge army with very many chariots and horsemen? Yet, because you relied on the Lord, He delivered them into your hand.9 For the eyes of the Lord run to and fro throughout the whole earth, to show Himself strong on behalf of those whose heart is loyal to Him. In this you have done foolishly; therefore from now on you shall have wars.” 2 Chronicles 16:7-9
Asa’s sin was trusting in his affiliation with those who seem to have power rather than the Lord.The prophet reminded Asa of God’s past faithfulness; God delivered Asa from an enemy stronger than the enemy Asa conquered through his alliance with Syria. Asa was judged as faithless. The judgement against Asa was that he would always have wars. What this meant was that God was not going to help him anymore.
In the midst of the prophecy of judgement, there is a promise revealed. The “eyes of the Lord” search the world looking for people with hearts that are faithful toward Him to show Himself strong on their behalf. Let us have a faith that is singularly focused on God.
Our own revelation as children of God
As God reveals Himself as our Father, His grace empowers us to behave as children of God. As the spirit of God works in our lives, then we begin to identify ourselves in relation to God rather than worldly things.
“Therefore, since we have such hope, we use great boldness of speech— unlike Moses, who put a veil over his face so that the children of Israel could not look steadily at the end of what was passing away. But their minds were blinded. For until this day the same veil remains unlifted in the reading of the Old Testament, because the veil is taken away in Christ. But even to this day, when Moses is read, a veil lies on their heart. Nevertheless when one turns to the Lord, the veil is taken away. Now the Lord is the Spirit; and where the Spirit of the Lord is, there is liberty. But we all, with unveiled face, beholding as in a mirror the glory of the Lord, are being transformed into the same image from glory to glory, just as by the Spirit of the Lord. ” 2 Corinthians 3:12-18
As we focus on beholding God’s glory, we are transformed into the same glory – an exact, but created, image of the glory of God. The Israelites could not or would not behold the glory of the Lord, so their hearts were veiled. Idolatry with Mystery Babylon is also putting the veil over our hearts in refusing to behold the glory of God. We must arm our minds to see god as glorified –as the sovereign King of kings, Lord of Lords, and as the supernatural fountainhead of all wisdom, righteousness, and resources. We need to seek a supernatural relationship with God with all expectancy. There are many resources to assist in this. This author has some available at
Brotherly love connections with the sons and daughters of God
As we become increasingly enabled to act as children of God, there become both a growing awareness of the bond with other children of God and a desire to develop growing relationships with brothers and sisters in Christ. The New Testament commands believers to express brotherly love towards brothers and sisters in Christ.
The Internet provides many tools to facilitate community interaction. Many Christians are accustomed to using mainstream Websites as Facebook and Twitter. Because these and similar sites co-mingle with elements of Mystery Babylon, they are of limited use in social networking designed to help Christians flee Mystery Babylon to form Christian communities. It is incumbent on Christians to form their own social networks. There are just a few networks of which this author is aware.
ChristianNetGuide.com was established in 2012 by Dallas Carter, author of Mystery Babylon Rising. It is designed to facilitate Christian social networking per local area networking. Each user account is equipped with the ability to create pages that are indexed in a local directory and equipped with an interactive blog.
New Providence Entertainment creates movies from a Christian perspective. Their latest film, Jackson’s Run, is “a family friendly, faith-based, “Rites-of-Passage” story that explores life, death, suffering, and God’s purpose in it”181 More information can be found at http://jacksonsrunfilm.com/
The Good News and Final Word
Much of this book is performing a necessary service. Warning and educating people about Mystery Babylon, an evil, Satanic conspiracy. Much of this information is bad news. We are to rejoice. The last word on this is not bad news. We have the victory over Satan and all of his minions (Rev 12:7-11) If the historical analysis confirm the Biblical narrative, as the evidence presented in this book shows, then the Bible is correct when it predicts the rise of the New World Order. If the Bible is correct about the rise of the New World Order, it is also correct about the end of the story, which is the fall of the New World Order and the blessed return of Jesus Christ to rule and reign on earth from Jerusalem, dispensing unfathomable blessing on the objects of His great love and annihilating all evil once and for all. More on this blessed program in my next book.

85 Negative Rights are rights that restrain what others than do; they negate
the scope of the freedom of others to make room for a particular individual. A well constructed system of negative rights allows for a system of ordered every individual to have both substantial freedom and the blessing of living socially in a civilized society.
86 Positive Rights involve the right to require others to assist the rights-holder
in the exercise of said right. In the case of abortion, Obama’s HHS mandate seek to impose so-called abortion rights (the right to murder) as a positive right by trying to force people to finance it against their conscience. Positive rights can be greatly abused as a scheme to destroy genuine liberty.
