Here is a lesson on the historical and very real "Babylon", in every culture, in every age. Introductions and explanations ....
SOME PRELIMINARY NOTES 1. The tracing of Babylon turns out to be the study of the human race, with its obvious and not so obvious byways and lanes that, after awhile, tend to overwhelm rather than edify. After months of plodding through these paths, I finally must force myself to stop and turn ...read more

Babylon is dealt a heavy blow as people begin to stream out of her, fight against her, and even discover a new world free from her influence (at least at the beginning). How will she respond to all of these changes?
FORTY-THREE: PROTESTANTISM This book is not meant to be an endorsement of "Protestantism" over Catholicism, though you may be shocked to hear me say it. It is not quite that simple. For example, "Protestant" England comes about in part as a result of the love-life of Henry VIII. Henry refuses ...read more

"Babylon" adapts itself to every age, even creates the age, and moves easily from its ancient beginnings to world empires. We travel all the way to the Book of Daniel, Biblically, in this segment.
3: ENTER THE PATRIARCHS We are not totally aware of what Satan knew and didn't know, and how he planned his counter-attack on the design of God. But if God revealed to Adam that the "seed of a woman" will bruise the "head of the serpent" (Genesis 3:14-15), is there any doubt that Satan has a ...read more

The spirit of conquest is the spirit that has invaded Rome from its onset, whether pagan or Papal. Read from the Vatican documents just how that notion has influenced her thinking. Should America still be concerned?
PART FOUR:RIDING 20th-CENTURY BEASTS, 1885-1948 FIFTY: THE JEWS AND DREYFUS In Part III, I left dangling a thread that needs to be pulled tight now. Let's quickly visit Catholic France in the latter part of the 19th century. Our guide is Weinberg, op.cit., pp. 70-71. "In the late 1800's, ...read more

With this section we cover the rest of the Old Testament period. "Babylon" has served as a backdrop to the Biblical story from early Genesis. It is still the backdrop, in our own day!
7: DANIEL AND BABYLON 600 B.C. In captivity, the Jews continue to manifest a presence. Daniel in particular is a thorn in the side of Babylon, and Satan takes special measures to rid the earth of him, all of which are unsuccessful. (For those who have not done so recently, a quick reading ...read more

Babylon's mysteries did not go away with Babylon, but have been passed on through the world empires. We now come to Rome, the "Babylon" of New Testament days.
9: PAGAN ROME We have danced through nearly 4000 years of history in a startlingly short time. Most moderns agree that the things I have portrayed so far are a true picture of the events that took place, the philosophies that prevailed, the religion that dominated. No need to overwork ...read more

FORTY: THE LEGS OF ROME I have shown how Rome has ruled the earth from the days of the Caesars until about 1600 A.D. She has torn and plundered and deceived her way to power by use of Roman swords, German kings, Spanish Inquisitors, French missionaries. The Mistress riding every known power on ...read more

FIFTY-FIVE: THE RISE OF COMMUNISM Following World War I, the attention of the world is directed to Orthodox/Czarist Russia.

For the first 60 years of the 20th century, Rome seemed to be at business as usual for her. Seniors today were raised with a Romanism that was a far cry from the compromising brand of today. Thus the Protestant's ease in separating from her.
PART FIVE: THE GREAT TRANSFORMATION , 1948- present FIFTY-NINE: THE BIRTH OF ISRAEL Some Christians would say that one of the most exciting events in all modern history is the episode involving God's promises to the nation Israel. In 1948, the Gentile domination of the Promised Land begins ...read more

Now we come to the days of Jesus and the church's formation, to see how Babylon relates in that time period.
PART II: ROME, PAGAN to PAPAL A.D. 100 to A.D. 1300 "We wrestle not against flesh and blood." (Ephesians 6:12) It is not men to whom we look as we seek the origin of the conspiracy against Christ and His church. We worry not whether mere mortals were aware of the part they played in the ...read more

The facts are documentable. There really is a connection between Rome and the events surrounding the Civil War, including Lincoln's untimely death. Step back and look at history through Biblical eyes, and your view changes considerably...
FORTY-EIGHT: THE LINCOLN AFFAIR So we are now in a time when bloodshed, which is newsworthy and can be reported to generations following, begins to give way to influence, which tends to go unnoticed except by the most observant. As we walk through these years, we walk slowly and ...read more

The influence of Babylon turns the simple organization of Jesus into a world power that does untold damage to its surroundings. The true church survives and is persecuted.
SEVENTEEN: THE GREATEST DECEPTION of the AGES (so far) c. 300 A.D. Pagan Rome rises and falls. Its history is clearly heralded by many. And as a true child of Babylon it plays its part well. Its hatred of and persecution of both Jews and Christians is well documented. ...read more

THIRTY-EIGHT: TRENT AND BEYOND In the midst of all this reforming, the Roman church decides on a counter-attack.

Slowly, ever so slowly, the papacy emerges. Attitudes change. The church looks strangely different. When she lashes out at the Jews who were her first members, and her Savior, we know things have evolved the wrong way...
NINETEEN: THE SLOW EMERGENCE OF THE PAPACY So, the location is to be Rome. The man is to be "Peter."

Though this study concluded in the 1990's, the conclusions are the same today. World religion is coming. Romanism and its cronies will make it up. Bible believers will be excluded. Be ready...
SEVENTY: ON SPEAKING OUT The Rock magazine from which I quoted earlier, March of 1990, addresses a question that may have entered your mind by now: Is it right to judge, to expose error, to name names? I give you their solidly Biblically-based answer: "...Those who are faithful in exposing ...read more

Eventually people get it: You must come out of Babylon. Here is the story of those first heroes of the Protestant Reformation, who saw Babylon, protested, and were forced out. Thank God for them.

Rome-Babylon has been with us for many centuries now. From giddy power over empires to its present place of "holding on", Babylon promises to be with us until her program is fulfilled (Revelation 18).
The "Golden Age" of the Papacy. c. 1000 A.D. As the new millennium dawns over Europe and the world, Rome tightens its grip. It seems every Pope is trying to outdo the last in wickedness and power plays. Benedict VIII buys the office of Pope in 1012, as does his successor in 1024. The latter ...read more

Greater and greater grows the power of "Christendom" under the Popes of the darkened ages. Lesser and lesser grows the prospects of the descendants of Abraham. And what is the Islamic connection to Babylon?
