Who Is Mystery Babylon? - Part III

"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: 5 And upon her forehead
was a name written, MYSTERY, BABYLON THE GREAT, THE MOTHER OF HARLOTS AND ABOMINATIONS OF THE EARTH. 6 And I saw the woman drunken with the blood of
the saints, and with the blood of the martyrs of Jesus: and when I saw
her, I wondered with great admiration." Revelation 17:4-6

This article shows us who the Bible calls Mystery Babylon.

3. Mystery Babylon Drunken With The Blood Of The Saints

In Revelation 17:5-6 it says "5 And upon her forehead was a name written,
MYSTERY, BABYLON THE GREAT, THE MOTHER OF HARLOTS AND ABOMINATIONS OF THE EARTH. 6 And I saw the woman drunken with the blood of the saints, and
with the blood of the martyrs of Jesus: and when I saw her, I wondered
with great admiration." In verse 5 the Bible calls Mystery Babylon the
mother of harlots (refer to our post titled "The One World Religion Is
Here" for more details). In verse 6 we see Mystery Babylon "Drunken with
the blood of the saints." During the Inquisition "From 1200 to 1808,
unspeakable tortures and death stalked the Catholic world, with 68 million
victims.(note 5)" During this time period many Bible-believing Christians
were killed by the Catholics.

In closing, as we look at the location, the unique colors and a history of
killing Bible-believing Christians, we can see that The Roman Catholic
Church is Mystery Babylon.

This article shows us who the Bible calls Mystery Babylon.

2. The Colors Of Mystery Babylon

Revelation 17: 4 describes the colors of Mystery Babylon. In Revelation
17:4 it says "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:" Notice
the colors purple, scarlet (or red), gold, precious stones and pearls,
having a golden cup in her hand. In the year 2000, newspapers starting
showing color pictures of the pope as he traveled to Egypt and Israel." An
article titled "Pope Celebrates Mass in Egypt - Pontiff Deplores Bias
Against Christians" (note 2) describes some of the pope's colors, "The
pope was greeted with cheers, emotional waving and song as he slowly made
his way to the altar, dressed in white and gold robes." This picture also
shows the pope giving a wafer to an Egyptian Catholic with the pope and
cardinal holding a cup with gold in the inside standing in front of a gold
and white chair. The cardinal also had clothing that was white and
scarlet. In the March 12th issue of the Oregonian, an article titled "The
Pope's Crusade"(note 3) shows a picture of the pope dressed in a purple
and white robe with a scarf standing between two cardinals dressed in
white and scarlet. Another article from the Columbian Newspaper, titled
"Frail pontiff forgoes Christ's symbolic walk" (note 4) shows a picture of
the pope dressed in white and scarlet. We see from Revelation 17:4 that
these unique colors show the Roman Catholic Church is Mystery Babylon.

1. The Location of Mystery Babylon

In Revelation 17:3 it says "So he carried me away in the spirit into the
wilderness: and I saw a woman sit upon a scarlet coloured beast, full of
names of blasphemy, having seven heads and ten horns." Revelation 17:9
shows the location of the woman which is mystery Babylon. In Revelation
17:9 it says "And here is the mind which hath wisdom. The seven heads are
seven mountains, on which the woman sitteth." This is Rome in Italy. The
Encyclopedia Britannica describes the" Seven Hills Of Rome" as a "group of
hills on or about which the ancient city of Rome was built." (note 1) The
location of mystery Babylon is in Rome, Italy. Today many call Vatican
City the headquarters of the Roman Catholic church.

When Was Jesus Christ Really Born? - Part II

This article is about the birth of Jesus Christ. Many of the traditions
associated with Christmas are pagan and have nothing to do with Christ's
birth.

2. The Pagan Counterfeit of Jesus Christ's Birth
The word "Christmas" comes from the Old English phrase "Cristes maesse",
or "Christ's mass"(2). "The Catholic Church "celebrated the birth of Jesus
Christ in 336 AD, according to a Roman almanac...During the 4th century
the celebration of Christ's birth on December 25 was gradually adopted by
most Eastern churches....The reason why Christmas came to be celebrated on
December 25 remains uncertain," but most likely the reason was so that
early Catholics could "coincide with the pagan Roman festival marking the
birthday of the unconquered sun (winter solstice)"(2). "The giving of
presents was a Roman custom; while the yule tree and the yule log are
remnants of old Teutonic nature worship."(1)

First I would like to say that a Catholic is not a Christian. Many of the
teachings of the Catholic Church are rooted in pagan religions. (To find
more information on the history of the teaching of Catholic Church, visit
the Chick Publications web site at www.chick.com and click on the Alberto
series or write to Chick Publications P.O. Box 3500, Ontario, CA
91761-1100 and ask about information on the Alberto series). For current
information about the Catholic Church read our post titled "The One World
Religion Is Here."

The prophet Jeremiah warned the house of Israel against learning the way
of the heathen. Sadly many Christians are doing this very thing today. In
Jeremiah 10:1-4 it says "1 Hear ye the word which the Lord speaketh unto
you, O house of Israel: 2 Thus saith the Lord, Learn not the way of the
heathen, and be not dismayed at the signs of heaven; for the heathen are
dismayed at them. 3 For the customs of the people are vain: for one
cutteth a tree out of the forest, the work of the hands of the workman,
with the axe. 4 They deck it with silver and with gold; they fasten it
with nails and with hammers, that it move not." Notice how this scripture
sounds like many Christians who have Christmas trees in their home and
exchange gifts. These customs have nothing to do with the birth of Jesus
Christ but have their roots in pagan religions. Many Christians today need
to remove all these pagan practices out of their lives and glorify Jesus
Christ.

When Was Jesus Christ Really Born? - Part I

This article is about the birth of Jesus Christ. Many of the traditions
associated with Christmas are pagan and have nothing to do with Christ's
birth.

1. When Was Jesus Christ Really Born?
Let's look at the birth of Jesus Christ. The scriptures show when Jesus
was really born. Matthew 2:1-4, 7-8 state "Now when Jesus was born in
Bethlehem of Judaea in the days of Herod the king, behold, there came wise
men from the east to Jerusalem, saying, Where is he that is born King of
the Jews? for we have seen his star in the east, and are come to worship
him. When Herod the king had heard these things, he was troubled, and all
Jerusalem with him. And when he had gathered all the chief priests and the
scribes of the people together, he demanded of them where Christ should be
born. . . . Then Herod, when he had privily called the wise men, inquired
of them diligently what time the star appeared. And he sent them to
Bethlehem, and said, Go and search diligently for the young child; and
when ye have found him, bring me word again, that I may come and worship
him also." But we know from the scriptures that king Herod did not want to
worship Jesus but destroy him. Matthew 2:16, 19-20 state "Then Herod, when
he saw that he was mocked of the wise men, was exceeding wroth, and sent
forth, and slew all the children that were in Bethlehem, and in all the
coasts thereof, from two years old and under, according to the time which
he had diligently inquired of the wise men. . . . But when Herod was dead,
behold, an angel of the Lord appeared in a dream to Joseph in Egypt,
Saying, Arise, and take the young child and his mother, and go into the
land of Israel:for they are dead which sought the young child's life."
History tells us that king Herod died March 13th, 4 B.C. (1). We can find
out the time of Jesus Christ's birth if we look at the date of the death
of Herod and look at Matthew 2:16 which tells us about his decree to kill
all children 2 years old and under. This would take us back to March 13th,
6 B.C. We know that Jesus Christ was on the earth for 33-1/2 years and
died on the week of Passover or Feast of unleavened bread which was during
the month Abib or Nisan (which is during March or April). From this we see
that Jesus Christ would be born in the October or November month in the
year 5 B.C.
