In God's Holy Word a woman is depicted as sitting upon a scarlet colored beast. (Rev. 17) The characteristics and activities of this woman are as follows.

{1} Commits fornication with the kings of the earth.

{2} Makes the earth's inhabitants drunk.

{3} Is clothed in purple and scarlet.

{4} Is adorned with gold and expensive jewelry.

{5} Has a golden cup in her hand filled with filth.

{6} Is drunken with the blood of saints and martyrs of Jesus.

{7} Sits upon seven mountains representing many peoples.

{8} Is hated and destroyed by 10 rulers under the "man of sin".

{9} Is a city that rules over the kings of the earth.

{10} Is filled with evil spirits and evil men.

{11} Enriches the merchants of the earth.

{12} Thinks she is a queen and will see no sorrow.

{13} Has a name written on her forehead.


This city is judged and destroyed suddenly by the Lord because of her wickedness. IE. Her opposition to the true Gospel, her persecution of the saints and the sorceries she engages in to deceive the nations.

This city can only be the Vatican. Alexander Hislop in his monumental historical investigation "The Two Babylons" proves beyond a shadow of a doubt that Roman Catholicism is based not on God's Word but is founded on the ancient Babylonian Mystery Religion. Most false religions have their foundation in the Babylonian mysteries. The Vatican ( which means - 'place of divination') is Satan's seat. It is from Rome that the various Babylonian religions will be amalgamated to produce a global religion to oppose the true Gospel and persecute the true servants of God.

"Then shall they deliver you up to be afflicted, and shall kill you: and ye shall be hated of all nations for my name's sake"
(Matt. 24:9)

The purpose of this work is to unravel the secrets behind this mystery religion.
Much has been written on the subject of the origins of this powerful delusion. I intend to focus on the source of her powers to deceive. The core secret is man spiritually merging with angels the angels being fallen angels otherwise known as demons. The central doctrine is "ye shall be as gods". This of course is the same lie that Satan used to deceive Eve. In this religion men are seduced by demons into believing they are Gods or being transformed into Gods.

The truth is they are being possessed and controlled by evil spirits. This doctrine is common to witchcraft. The penalties for involvement in the occult are severe. Because these demons exhibit various powers in their hosts that reinforces the delusion that the victim is becoming a God.

The demons seek to use their subjects to rule over people and one expression of this phenomenon is called Nicolaitanism. (see Rev. 2:6) ( Nico means power over & laity of course means the people.) True servants of God do not act as lords over God's people on the contrary they humble themselves and devote themselves as servants to the saints who are the true members of the body of Jesus Christ. Nicolaitanism has its perfect expression in the priesthood of the Catholic Church. It is also ingrained into many churches claiming to be Protestant. The practice of fleecing the flock in order to live in luxury is a common Nicolaitan trait. The grand titles that many ministers ascribe to their names is also derived from this practice. The terms 'bishop', 'deacon', etc. as used in the Bible describe functions within the Church and should not be used as titles appended to names.

" God resisteth the proud, but giveth grace unto the humble."
"Humble yourselves in the sight of the Lord, and He shall lift thee up."
(James 4:6b & 10)

The Catholic Church (that holds so many precious souls in bondage) is marked by many blasphemous claims and contains within it the central lie "ye shall be as gods". The following points reveal this deception.

[1] Their priests claim that they can change bread into God - making themselves gods.

[2] The popes claim infallibility, a divine attribute.

[3] Some popes have claimed to be God Himself.

[4] Some popes have claimed that they take the place of Jesus in the earth.

[5] Catholic tradition and doctrines are exalted above the Word of God.

[6] Claim that only their priests can properly interpret the Bible.

[7] Their priests claim to be able to absolve sins, something that only God can do.

[8] Her so called 'saints' are enshrined as gods to be prayed to.

[9] Sainthood (godhood) is promised to those who show themselves especially zealous in promoting Catholicism.

[10] They also arrogantly claim to be the 'sole depository of salvation'.

Another branch of the Babylonian mystery religion is called 'Freemasonry' and it has much in common with the Catholic church which controls it. The public is given the impression that the Catholic Church is opposed to this movement yet many members of her ruling priesthood are members of this occult organization.

A List of Masons in The Hierarchy of the Catholic Church

Through Freemasonry the wicked doctrine "ye shall be as gods" has been promoted from the pulpits with expectations of ensnaring the true saints of God into this most foul and occultic teaching. This I believe is the lie that will envelop the world paving the way for the appearance of the "man of sin" who will impress the world with his demonic powers.

The following doctrines from Satan are intended to soften up otherwise sound believers in order to ensnare them in the "ye shall be as gods" trap.

(A) Faith is a power in and of itself.

(B) You have inherent power to transform yourself.

(C) Man can create reality with his words. (Name it and claim it.)

(D) You have the Spirit of God, therefore you are a god.

(E) You have hidden spiritual powers within.

(F) God's love is unconditional.

(This last point allows believers to think they can do as they please and still be acceptable to the Lord.)( The Lord says otherwise. I suggest you read the book of Revelation to gain a proper perspective on the Lord's attitude towards the wicked.)

The preceding 6 points are important aspects of the falling away that is now growing at an alarming speed.

Many evangelists and teachers are replacing the true Gospel with the above delusions. Psychological teachings are also being introduced into the churches to spread situation ethics, self love and pagan philosophy.

The Fifth Column

Psychiatry is based on various mental programming techniques and was promoted by the Illuminati to replace mental health standards based on biblical principles. (Notice that these rather complex behavioral standards concerning mental health are based on promoting conformity to manufactured politically correct values while rejecting traditional Christian views concerning man's inherent sinful condition and alienation from God.) As such psychiatry becomes simply a tool of social transformation based on humanistic ideals and aspirations. Manipulating minds to produce pagan conduct is also an important facet of witchcraft. It is not surprising to find its adherents also using hypnosis (charming), and mind-altering drugs (sorcery) to control behavior. Notice also that the Roman Catholic practice of confessionals (confessing your sins to men) is now incorporated into most psychological programs and self help groups.

Modern mass media access to people's homes through TV, radio, newspapers, etc. allows for accelerated sociological changes. The media's promotion of wickedness. IE. pornography, violence, covetousness, witchcraft, drug abuse, and so on is designed to corrupt minds making it easier for demons to manipulate the populations of the world. Your television especially is being used to pollute your mind. There is much concern about air, water, and even food (additive) pollution, but comparatively little concern over mind pollution.

"Having therefore these promises dearly beloved, let us cleanse ourselves from all filthiness of the flesh and spirit, perfecting holiness in the fear of God."
(2 Cor.7:1)

Man with all his technological advancements cannot prevent his decent into a new (but very short) dark age. Do not allow yourself to become entangled with the ways of this present evil world.

"Thus saith the Lord, Stand ye in the ways, and see, and ask for the old paths, where is the good way, and walk therein, and ye shall find rest for your souls."
(Jer. 6:16)

"And be not conformed to this world: but be ye transformed by the renewing of your mind, that ye may prove what is that good, and acceptable, and perfect, will of God."
(Rom. 12:2)

I call upon all the true saints of God to rebuke and withdraw all support from every preacher who continues to teach the doctrines of demons exposed in this article. Pray for them that peradventure God will grant them repentance unto restoration to serve God according to the truth of the everlasting Gospel of Jesus Christ.

The Lord Jesus bless you.
