Will a global religious system the Roman Catholic Church become the Mystery Babylon spoken of in the bible?

In Revelation 17:1-6 The angel said to John come hither; I will shew unto thee the judgment of the great whore that sitteth upon many waters: With whom the kings of the earth have committed fornication, and the inhabitants of the earth have been made drunk with the wine of her fornication. 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. 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: And upon her forehead was a name written, MYSTERY, BABYLON THE GREAT, THE MOTHER OF HARLOTS AND ABOMINATIONS OF THE EARTH.    (Video and text links at bottom of page)

Mystery Babylon

Mystery Babylon and the EU

By Allan Rasmussen

Our world is witnessing the spirit of Babylon rising once again, where man is seeking to glorify himself at the expense of God. The modern word which describes this phenomenon is ‘humanism’. Yet the idea is anything but modern.

The manifestations of humanism, and its prideful path can be traced all the way back to ancient Babylon. There, on the banks of the Euphrates River, Nimrod, the King of Babylon, and his seductive Queen, Semiramis, oversaw the building of a huge and unholy architectural monstrosity, the Tower of Babel. This story, out of Genesis 11:1-9, has delivered into the English language the word ‘babble’ which reflects the confusion of speech that God imposed on the world at that time.

The Scripture tells us that "the whole earth had one language and one speech." The reason God intervened to confuse speech and scatter them over the face of the earth was to prevent mankind fulfilling its immediate aim – to establish a One World Order and unite all nations and peoples in the worship of Lucifer, the deity recognized by the ancients under such names as Baal, Marduk, and Nebo.

Today, our planet is experiencing a great revival of the style of government and worship that was the norm in Nimrod’s Babylon. This was prophesied to occur in Revelation 17 & 18 where we find that this End Times phenomenon is described as the rising of Mystery Babylon. That time is come, and once again, we find that man is building yet another towering edifice of evil, which is the fruit of man’s fallen character. However, this time the Tower is more a spiritual idea than it is bricks and mortar, although the finished work will be a system of absolute control, both spiritual, political and economic, with worldwide influence, pursuing the exact same goals in the exact same way as its ancient predecessor. At this point we must turn to Scripture and see what the Bible declares regarding this End Times manifestation of spiritual Babylon. The first Scripture appears in Revelation 17:1b-5 – "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 BEAST which was full of names of blasphemy, having seven heads and ten horns. 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. And on her forehead a name was written: MYSTERY, BABYLON THE GREAT, THE MOTHER OF HARLOTS AND OF THE ABOMINATIONS OF THE EARTH. I saw the woman, drunk with the blood of the saints and with the blood of the martyrs of Jesus. And when I saw her, I marveled with great amazement." NKJV

Revelation 17:7-10 has John the Revelator explaining the "mystery" surrounding the identity of Mystery Babylon. He records – "But the angel said to me, ‘Why did you marvel? I will tell you the mystery of the woman and of the beast that carries her, which has the seven heads and the ten horns. The beast that you saw was, and is not, and will ascend out of the bottomless pit and go to perdition. And those who dwell on the earth will marvel, whose names are not written in the Book of Life from the foundation of the world, when they see the beast that was, and is not, and yet is. 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.’" NKJV

This description flows hand-in-glove with the Book of Daniel, and confirms the prophetic words of Bible prophecy that 7 world kingdoms of man must rise and fall before the unshakeable and eternal kingdom of the living God will finally bring in everlasting righteousness. We await the final world kingdom, which is presented in the "metal kingdom" image of Daniel 2, as being feet of iron and clay, strength combined with weakness. The short time this Kingdom will have power is prophesied to be 3½ years and we know this time to be the period that is commonly called the Great Tribulation.

The woman sitting on the Beast is typified in 2 ways –

The apostate harlot church, or religious Babylon and

Commercial/Political Babylon which is the world system of politics and economics judged by God in Revelation 18.

We can see then, that one part of this demonic strategy is a religious system and the other a political/economic system. Both combine as Babylon the Great, and is symbolized by the Woman sitting on the Beast. This duopoly requires two leaders and so we have the embodiment of the demonic Trinity. SATAN empowers the new rising of Babylon with the emergence of the FALSE PROPHET to rule over the One World religious system, and the revealing of the ANTICHRIST to rule over the economic system. They will eventually wield total power.

The rise of Babylon will lead the nations of the earth into spiritual adultery - In the Old Testament Israel was described as an adulterous nation because she often cheated on the Lord and turned to other gods. The same should be understood of the new Babylonic system. She is a power that has rejected God and turned to other forms of worship, the first being idolatry and the second materialism. Revelation clearly teaches this. The seeds of this last great Empire are already sown and are growing before our very eyes.

The final World Kingdom of Nebuchadnezzar’s dream will be that ruled by Antichrist. This will be an economic and religious system which will be the fulfillment of the dream of a New World Order, which will be European in rule, and see the consummation of Mystery Babylon. Sinful man’s innate desire to rule himself being seen once again, in a new, revived, spiritual and economic Tower of Babel. It is no coincidence that the things that marked the old also mark the new, because it is the same spirit.

Is it possible to see real signs that this is happening before our very eyes? Absolutely! In the 1500’s, Pieter Brueghel painted his version of the Tower of Babel. A reproduction of this painting appears above.

Nearly 500 years later, the concept and architecture of that which Brueghel imagined has been reproduced in real life by none other than the European Union.

The EU building in Strasbourg is modeled on the original Tower of Babel as painted by Brueghel. The logic behind this symbolism is the EU says it is seeking to "build up 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 to represent scaffolding. Here is the scary part. A reporter questioning "Why the Tower of Babel" as a design concept, was answered in an astounding way by an EU official. He said, "What they failed to complete 3000 years ago – we in Europe will finish now!" Here we see the staggering proof of this New World Order in its formative, yet rapidly advancing stages.

But that is only the start! Remember we mentioned the woman sitting on a scarlet beast called Mystery Babylon? This image comes from Greek mythology and is known as The RAPE OF EUROPA. The legend recounts the story of Europa, who was abducted by the Greek god Zeus who came in the form of a beast, carried her away to a far place, then revealed his real identity and sexually abused her. One of the more famous paintings of the Rape of Europa is reproduced here.

Unbelievably, this story of Europa, which parallels the women riding the beast in Revelation, is being used as the logo of the EU. It seems impossible to believe. It stretches our credibility to the limit to think that the Officials of a group of nations would collectively agree in sober and rational discussion to produce such an image as representative of their union. Nevertheless it is true.

There is another power operating however, which is manipulating the situation. The decision makers of the EU are simply pawns in a cosmic game of chess where the Grandmaster of sin is making his moves with his demonic character stamped all over it. He will not enjoy the end game however, which is an eternal trip to the lake of fire.

The Rape of Europa is now immortalized again, not by paintings, but in a number of ways, which brings Mystery Babylon sharply into focus in the very days we are living in. Here are some of them - The woman riding the beast appears as a major sculpture, standing outside the entrance to the EU headquarters in Strasbourg. We have the evidence for you by way of a colour photo of the sculpture.

A Postage Stamp was recently released in Britain. Under the banner of the EU, this stamp shows a graphic rendition of the Rape of Europa. In Germany, credit cards have this same image imprinted on them. In the previous issue of Omega Times we carried a picture of a coin in the Letters page. We reproduce it here. The relatively new Euro coinage has the Woman on the Beast appearing on the 2 Euro coin. Many of our European readers will have handled this coin many times without realizing just what it symbolized.

These things are more than coincidence. Yet we are thankful to God that He has revealed the hidden things to His Church in these last days, so that we have understanding of what is happening.

The myriad number of groups, governments, societies and interest groups who are working toward a New World Order are gradually placing all the necessary things in order to facilitate the revived dream of Babel. The Nimrod’s of this world, along with their supporters, will have their day in the sun, but it will be woefully brief, considering the length of the fate of those who will be the players in this scenario.

Simply stated, it will be 3½ years of absolute power, then Mystery Babylon, and all its evil system, will be confronted by the one who John reveals in Revelation 11 – the one who appears suddenly from heaven, seated on a white horse. He is called Faithful and True, and He judges and makes war. He is clothed in a robe dipped in blood and His name is called the Word of God.
