priest control deck
One thing is for certain that Rome is the kingdom of the end times as we read in Daniel of the Iron thighs - legs down to toes mixed with clay. Clay is the symbol for Israel.
Rome in Caesar's time assimilated all the mystery religions - to include Babylon & made them subservient to Caesar as the supreme deity in the flesh.
Rome is the Beast
but the Harlot "Mystery Babylon" rides the Beast
The harlot holds the reigns...
Babylon is the Head of the time of Gentile nations.
The harlot rides in the saddle as her mind - the Jezebel mind is in priest control deck of the beast's ravaging un-conscientious brutal strength.
There is a mind - meld of harlot & beast
Babylon & Rome.
Check out this quote:
When Attalus, the Pontiff and King of Pergamos, died in 133 BC, he bequested the Headship of the "Babylonian Priesthood" to Rome. When the Etruscans came to Italy from Lydia (the region of Pergamos), they brought with them the Babylonian religion and rites. They set up a Pontiff who was head of the Priesthood. Later the Romans accepted this Pontiff as their civil ruler.
Julius Caesar was made Pontiff of the Etruscan Order in 74 BC. In 63 BC he was made "Supreme Pontiff" of the "Babylonian Order," thus becoming heir to the rights and titles of Attalus, Pontiff of Pergamos, who had made Rome his heir by will. Thus the first Roman Emperor became the Head of the "Babylonian Priesthood", and Rome the successor of Babylon.
The Emperors of Rome continued to exercise the office of "Supreme Pontiff" until 366 AD, through the influence of the monks of Mt. Carmel, a college of Babylonian religion originally founded by the priests of Jezebel. So in 378 AD the Head of the "Babylonian Order" became the Ruler of the "Roman Church." Thus Satan united Rome and Babylon in one religious system.
Soon after Damascus was made "Supreme Pontiff" the "rites" of Babylon began to come to the front.
Jerusalem is the earthly physical geographical center of Yahuah's plan.
If Satan seeks to storm Yahuah's throne to sit upon it - after he is cast to the earth, satan will set himself up for worship where only HaMashiach should be seated.
The Greek Antiochus Ephiphanes sacrificed a pig on Yahuah's altar.
The Roman Titus sacrificed a pig in the courtyard.
Anti-Christ will set himself up in Jerusalem to usurp Yahuah HaMashiach's throne.
The seat of satan will move.
I think Maria is on to something.
P.S. Remember the Etruscan cemetery in the Omen?
The Etruscans who founded Rome were deep into the occult & the Vatican is buit on the pagans oracles site.
