Revelation 17:3-4, 6, 9-13, “...I saw a woman sit upon a scarlet colored beast, full of names of blasphemy, having seven heads and ten horns. And the woman was arrayed in purple and scarlet color, 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 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...The seven heads are seven mountains, on which the woman sitteth. And there are seven kings: five are fallen, and one is, and the other is not yet come; and when he cometh, he must continue a short space. And the beast that was, and is not, even he is the eighth, and is of the seven, and goeth into perdition. And the ten horns which thou sawest are ten kings, which have received no kingdom as yet: but receive power as kings one hour with the beast. These have one mind, and shall give their power and strength unto the beast.”
Most Bible scholars in the past identified the woman riding the beast as The Roman Catholic Church. This extremely wealthy religion has conspired with & influenced leaders of governments in order to rule the world, persecute & kill Christians & others that will not become Catholic. This religion is the most famous, powerful & influential religion in the world & they like to be called Christian, yet it’s roots come from the mysterious pagan Babylonian religion, thus it is referred to in Revelation 17:5 as “...Mystery Babylon The Great, The Mother of Harlots and Abominations of The Earth.”
Genesis chapters 10-11 describes Nimrod, son of Cush & grandson of Noah, as the King of Babylon. Nimrod is described in Genesis 10:8 as a “mighty one”, translated from the Hebrew, meaning a “tyrant”. So Nimrod’s life, dedicated as a supreme religious ruler against God & Babylon, is synonymous with rebellion & lawlessness. Nimrod led Mystery Babylon at one time, which is deep into the occult, witchcraft, sorcery & paganism with the appearance of representing God.
Acts 8:9-11 talks about Simon the Sorcerer, the religious leader of the Samaritans, who originally came from Babylon. Simon used his sorcery to bewitch the people. Simon’s sorcery was rooted in the pagan practices of the Babylonian mystery religion through evil spirits. The Apostles rejected Simon as he wanted to use money to buy the gifts of the Holy Spirit (Acts 8:20-23). Simon Magus was a fraud. The Apostle Peter was called to the Jews not the Gentiles. There is no evidence the true Apostle Peter did a great work in Rome, but Simon the Sorcerer did & apparently brought his demonic practices into the Catholic Church at it’s foundation, although the Catholic Church denies this. The evidence shows Paul ministered to Gentiles in Rome & he had a problem with people being misled by the Gentile Samaritan Simon Magus, aka Simon the Sorcerer, (Galatians 1:6) because many believers were deceived and followed his heresies.
