Who could the whore of Babylon be?
The papacy client state view:
Above is a pagan Canaanite cultic pillar or "matstsebah", also found in excavations of the city of Hatzor, showing hands raised in praise to the
sun disk, portrayed within the crescent moon.
a photo of a stele from Ur of the Chaldees, with the symbol of the Babylonian sun god Shamash within the crescent of the moon goddess Nanna.
a statuette of the Egyptian goddess Isis. Her headdress shows the sun disk within the horns of an Apis bull, symbology which is virtually identical to
that of the sunburst monstrance. Also of note, in Isis lap is her infant son, Horus. In this one image you have the symbology of the Catholic
monstrance and Mother / child worship which is so prominent in Catholicism.
The Apis bull, as depicted in this Egyptian statuette, is likely to be the pattern used for the golden calf the Israelites made at Mount Sinai (Exo.
32), since they were undoubtedly quite familiar with it as a result of their long captivity in Egypt. Note that in front of the sun disk and horns,
which looks virtually identical to some Catholic monstrances, there is the serpent poised to strike. In Scripture the serpent is symbolic of Satan.
(Gen 3, Rev. 12:9)
What does that remind one of? .....
Trident on idol:
Poseidon (often identified as either Mot or Baal in the Canaanite pantheon):
The trident is a questionable symbol.
Crest of the Dragon. Represents the pagan god Marduk from Babylon; Roman Emperor Heliogabalus introduced it to the Roman Empire in the 3-rd Century.
This is the Vatican crest. Satan is identified as THE Dragon in scripture (as the annointed Cherub that was his holiest form, though he is now a
different being in character and definitely not holy). Some may argue this just represents the Powers of angelic hierarchy- I digress. This is a pagan
symbol with Satanic overtones.
Cybele with episcopal 'daggon-hat'...
Coincidence? Note the inverted cross on that throne. Also the bent crucifix.
100 Lire coins issued by the Vatican for nearly 10 years.Incredibly enough, the woman representing faith (the Catholic Church) on the reverse side of
the coins holds up a cup in her right hand, in which you see pagan sunburst wafer god, which recalls these verses in Revelation:
Rev 17:4 And the woman was arrayed in purple and scarlet colour, and decked with gold and precious stones and pearls, having a golden cup in her
hand full of abominations and filthiness of her fornication:
Rev 18:3 For all nations have drunk of the wine of the wrath of her fornication, and the kings of the earth have committed fornication with her,
and the merchants of the earth are waxed rich through the abundance of her delicacies.
The cup of wine of the apostate woman (church) represents spiritual and doctrinal fornication, a mixing of truth and error, Christianity and paganism,
which she has taught to the world (made the nations drink).
Rev 17:5 And upon her forehead was a name written, MYSTERY, BABYLON THE GREAT, THE MOTHER OF HARLOTS AND ABOMINATIONS OF THE EARTH.
There is only one self-proclaimed "Mother" church, The Universal (Catholic) Church.
Rev 18:4 And I heard another voice from heaven, saying, Come out of her, my people, that ye be not partakers of her sins, and that ye receive not
of her plagues.
Rev 18:5 For her sins have reached unto heaven, and God hath remembered her iniquities.
Note the inverted cross again,(found on the CBS website):
More inverted crosses :
CNN papal visit coverage.
The CBS caption says,
"The pope sits on the altar at Korazim. The backdrop depicts Christ with an open book that reads, 'Love your enemies, I will come soon.' "
What happened to Korazim in the bible again by the way? Wasn't it declared by Christ as an unholy and evil place destined to be judged in a far worse
light than Sodom and Gommorha (which would have witnessed a revival if given what it was given)? This look's like mockery to me. Surely somebody as
smart as JP would know this....
**More startling is the Grammar of that sentence (who have been the enemies of the papacy throughout history? Two groups primarily- Jews and
Protestants, the exact groups who will face persecution in the end of times)**
Excellent slideshow on pagan symbolisms in the papacy:
The EU / "revived Roman empire" view (succint):
The Islamic Caliphate view:
Check this out:
Tower of Babel - Peter Brueghel - 1563
EU "Parliament" Building - Strasbourg
The two images blend almost seamlessly
Note the stars on this portrait of Mary.
The EU's "Parliament" Building in Strasbourg has been deliberately designed to represent the Tower of Babel, as per the famous painting by Peter
Brueghel, painted in 1563. The logic behind this symbolism is the the EU is seeking to "build the house of Europe" - a task yet to be completed. The
building is complete and in use, but is designed to look unfinished, and even has ringed platforms around it to represent scaffolding. When asked by a
secular journalist ‘Why the Tower of Babel?’ an EU official replied, ‘What they failed to complete 3000 years ago – we in Europe will finish
The Tower of Babel was one man's first atempts to form a system to exalt himself, a complete foreshadow of a one world system on the horizon with a
leader similar to Nimrod. Now who's this leader is up for grabs. I'm sure we will know soon.

Here's our good friend Nimrod in disguise:
Papal crest anyone? Theological ancestor of the Pharoahs no doubt.
