After the Flood the city state of Babylon became the center of Satan's great attack on human history. After the destruction of the Tower of Babel, Babylon remained in hidden mystery form in Satan's Cosmic System. The world counterattack of Mystery Babylon continued through the ages. The power of the great evil in the world today is defined through the symbolism of the Evil King and the Prostitute of Babylon in Revelation.
Mystery Babylon, which is taught from Genesis to Revelation, is one of the major doctrines in the Bible and one of the major themes of human history. Yet, this strategically important doctrine lies beyond the grasp of most people. So well-hidden is the mystery, right under the nose, that the symptoms are seen but not the cause. The reason lies in the power that Satan has over this world through fundamental values like the love of money and honey (sexuality). Satan controls the pastors as well as the congregations. He controls the parents as well as the children. So, each generation is doomed to repeat the mistakes of the past.
It doesn't have to be this way. The Light is available for those who want it. However, the Light to see Mystery Babylon will only be revealed to those whom the Lord chooses. Only true believers can see the Light, and the Lord decides who those true believers are. Many of the best and brightest students of Bible Doctrine are totally oblivious to the paradigm of Mystery Babylon. They talk a good fight, but they are not genuine. The power of Christianity seems to have eluded too many of the so-called doctrinal believers, who are so busy conforming to Mystery Babylon that the power of God has departed. These people can't make a decision by themselves. The Holy Spirit is a mystery to them, whereas, they accept Satan's Mystery Babylon as the gospel.
Mystery Babylon is a doctrine for Christians who have reached Spiritual Maturity and are advancing to Spiritual Rapport. It is not meant for arrogant theologians who are educated beyond their intelligence. Yet, even though the doctrine may only be mastered in Spiritual Rapport, it should be heard even by school children, who are bombarded with human viewpoint from Satan's factory of lies and deception. Christian schools are blind to Mystery Babylon the same as their secular counterparts. And no Christian teacher should teach without studying this all-important doctrine of our Christian heritage.
The exposure of Mystery Babylon, which is Satan's Cosmic System, is not meant to be an academic exercise. It has far-reaching practical value. It doesn't take a professor to recognize daylight from dark. When Marriages don't click, there must be a reason. There is. The Prostitute of Babylon, who represents Satan, has infiltrated every institution of society, especially the Church. She is out to destroy Marriage; yet, most Christians are oblivious to her. Satan is much more brilliant and much more active than most people think. He has a master plan in place to destroy every divine institution and every Christian life. But genuine Christians who Love the Lord Jesus Christ and obey the Holy Spirit can see through Satan's ploy. They can grasp his master plan of Mystery Babylon because it is written in the Bible. And they can see Spiritually what is happening in the world around them.
There are many practical applications to be gained from mastering the doctrine of Mystery Babylon. Some value could be gained from simply looking at the pictures in this document. The pictures of Light and darkness in the human body can be applied to breast cancer as well as other diseases and maladies. The source of marital problems and lack of harmony can be understood. The true course of history is explained. Social relationships and relationships with animals are cast in a new light. The love of money and honey are exposed. Two of the most wonderful Christians in history, Patrick and Brigid, from Ireland, are introduced. And Bible prophecy is accurately interpreted. The attacks on Client Nation Israel are explained. And the attacks on the Church in light of the seven churches of Revelation has application throughout the Church Age. For those who will master the doctrine, the application will come.
Seeing the faithfulness of God in light of the Satanic counterattack of Mystery Babylon will challenge the Christian to operate inside the Integrity Envelope. The impact of genuine Christian Integrity on human history will be seen. And Satan's counterattack to prevent the Christian from achieving Spiritual Rapport with God and harmonious rapport with the spouse and all mankind will be exposed.

The Evil King and Prostitute in Modern Times
The Spiritual Solution
However, Satan was allowed to cross examine the witnesses in the Appeal Trial on earth. He began to work on the woman through her favorite animal friend. The man and the woman began to take their relationship for granted, and Satan tolled the woman off for a chat away from the ears of her trusting husband. The woman was no match for the brilliance of Satan, who talked to her through the serpent.
Since the woman represented love and the man represented authority, Satan's attack on the woman was an attack on love. Satan always picks the weakest link. He chose the woman and not the man. He worked through love and avoided authority.
Marriage is first an authority relationship, and secondly a love relationship.The first Marriage began with God choosing the mate and performing the wedding ceremony. The man married the woman under authority and then fell in love with her after the wedding. Authority came first, and love was second.
As Satan worked on the woman, the emphasis in the marriage relationship of Adam and the woman became love, and authority was taken for granted. Satan appealed to the woman's love. He didn't try to seduce her. Although that would have been no problem, it would have accomplished nothing since the woman could only sin in one way, by eating of the forbidden fruit. Satan convinced the woman that the forbidden fruit would make her wise like God (Genesis 3:5). It was Satan's original ploy when he said, "I will be like the Most High" (Isaiah 14:14). The woman responder loved her husband. She loved her serpent; and, now she was loving Satan, the master deceiver.
NoteFaith, hope, and Love are all required to maintain Spirituality (reference Marriage Grace). Love must be a part of Marriage. Nothing is being taught here that says it isn't.
As the woman listened to Satan, her personal love relationship with her husband became more and more powerful, and authority became an insignificant issue. The authority that brought the Marriage together and kept it intact was forgotten. As the woman became infatuated with her newfound love for the talking serpent, authority and love in the Marriage were out of balance. Love was empowered with Satan's backing, while authority weakened. The woman wanted a powerful love life, but she didn't understand that it could only be possible within the framework of authority.
She eventually used her freedom to eat the forbidden fruit. And after eating it, she kept right on operating in the will of Satan, rather than the will of God. She picked the forbidden fruit and gave it to her husband Adam (ref. Marriage Grace). Adam still had authority. He knew what he was doing. But his love for the woman was more powerful than his respect for the authority of God. Adam succumbed to the powerful love of the woman and ate the forbidden fruit. He immediately died spiritually just as the woman had. He lost the rulership of the world to Satan. Adam the King suddenly became Adam, the slave of Satan, all because of love.
After the Fall, the Lord established new rules for life outside the Garden in the Adamic Covenant. One of the clauses of the Adamic Covenant was:
To the woman He said,This clause recognizes the desire of the woman throughout history to usurp the authority of her husband, but it establishes the man as the authority over the woman in Marriage. The last line of Genesis 3:16 explains the blessing and cursing of Marriage Culture. When authority is neglected, the motivation of love empowers the female to usurp the authority of the husband. Men who bow to the female to keep peace become wimps.
"I will greatly multiply your pain and your conception.
In pain you shall bring forth children.
Yet, for your husband, your desire; but he shall rule over you." (Genesis 3:16)
Love without authority erodes the boundaries of Marriage.Respect for authority is beneath the dignity of the arrogant female who has tasted the power of Satan. When she enters the Cosmic System, the Marriage succumbs to the slavery of Baal, Satan's demon Commander over Marriage. Within four generations children raised under Satanically empowered females become so evil that the nation has to be destroyed under the principle of the Four Generation Curse.
Satan's attack was through love in women. He tried to conquer the world and prevent the fulfillment of the plan of God through love. It was the greatest love attack in human history. However, Noah obeyed the authority of God in his Marriage. He resisted Satan's lies and seduction. When God destroyed the world through the Flood, Noah and his family were delivered.
The temple in Babel was a tower that reached into heaven. It represented a physical solution of man trying to reach Heaven by his own means. But it was really a temple for the worship of Satan through the hidden mysteries of ritual prostitution and human sacrifice. Prostitution honored the goddess of love, while human sacrifice honored the god of war. The goddess of love and god of war are combined in the dichotomous love/hate nature of Satan (reference Satan's Attack on Marriage).
Babel became the prototype for Satan's attack on Marriage and the human race throughout the rest of human history. The Prostitute of Babel was born. And since the Hebrew Babel was transliterated as Babylon in the Greek, she became known as the Prostitute of Babylon. The Prostitute of Babylon was a woman, who, in the ritual of prostitution, was empowered by a demon goddess of love. The prostitution ritual was performed in the temple as a Satanic religion. What had been practiced openly before the Flood was practiced after it in mystery form through religion. The term, "mystery," refers to hidden knowledge only available to the initiate.
The Prostitute of Babylon was the high priestess in the temple. She was in charge of the temple prostitutes, who also performed the function of Prostitute of Babylon. Ritual prostitution was a religion led by women. The Prostitute of Babylon was a woman who claimed to be the goddess of love during the prostitution ritual. She was empowered, or possessed, by a demon of Satan.
The Prostitute of Babylon was a woman who symbolized Satan as the goddess of love in the prostitution ritual.At Babel, Satan successfully counterattacked human civilization for the third time. The power of the female in Satan's counterfeit religion had enslaved the entire civilization of the earth. The authority of the husband in Marriage Culture had been thwarted.
There is no freedom outside authority; there is only slavery or anarchy.In order to preserve human freedom, which was necessary for the volition test in the Appeal Trial of Satan, God came down and destroyed the Tower of Babel. He confused the languages, and scattered the people abroad. Thus, He instituted the Divine Institution of Nationalism whereby nations can fight to defend their sovereign authority and preserve their freedom.
The name, Babel, means gate of God. However, it became the gate of the god, Satan, who convinced everyone to worship him through mythology, the lie of his counterfeit religion. God gave Babel a new definition when He confused the languages. Babel became known in a pun as as balal, which means confusion (Genesis 11:1-9).
The Chaldean Empire with capital in Babylon became the greatest empire in history. Babylon is simply the Greek transliteration of the Hebrew word, Babel. It represented the power of the female who usurped the authority of the male in Marriage Culture. The symbol of the sacred bull in Babylon represented the power of love, not authority. Ishtar (the Moon goddess), was worshipped in the ziggurat temple as the goddess of love through ritual prostitution. Through the same religion from Babel, Satan was worshipped as the Most High god through the rites of the temple prostitutes who posed as the goddess of love. The goddess Inanna (the Morning Star, Venus) symbolized the Prostitute of Babylon. Ritual prostitution invoked the power of Ishtar or Inanna and love in lieu of authority.
At Babylon, the goddess of love of Satan's Cosmic System had supreme power in the form of the temple prostitutes, who symbolized Inanna and Ishtar. The Prostitute of Babylon was the high priestess in the ziggurat temple who managed the other temple prostitutes. Babylon was under the power of the female. Inanna and Ishtar empowered the female. Love took over and authority fell by the wayside. Babylon set a new standard for the decadence of the power of love outside authority. When the Chaldeans conquered the world, the power of the Prostitute of Babylon spread throughout the world.
Babylon the Great was a city that ruled the world. It was a city-state like Rome. Nebuchadnezzar was the Evil King of Babylon and the commander of the first army that conquered the world. He was empowered by Satan as the god of war, whom he worshipped as Marduk. Even though Nebuchadnezzar had the power of the Evil King when he conquered, Babylon the Great was also under the power of the female Prostitute of Babylon. Even though the king sat on the throne, the female Prostitute of Babylon had much of the power. He protected her city in war so that she could exploit her promiscuity to the maximum and serve her idol, Satan, as the goddess of love. Thus, the Prostitute of Babylon became the pregnant symbol of the city of Babylon the Great. Later, in Revelation, the apostle John would use the Prostitute of Babylon as a symbol of Babylon the Great.
In Proverbs, David taught his teenage son, Solomon about the necessity of obeying authority in the face of the love counterattacks of life from the adulteress, the strange woman, and the foreign prostitute. The foreign prostitute was a woman who practiced ritual prostitution in Satanic worship patterned after the religion of Babylon. The foreign prostitute symbolized the Prostitute of Babylon. He cautioned Solomon to obey Bible Doctrine in lieu of the power of love in many passages.
To deliver you from the strange woman,However, Solomon, like most teenage boys had only one thing on his mind, his phallus. The Song of Solomon is a musical about the conquest of love in lieu of authority. Solomon married the Shulamite woman for love in violation of authority. She was someone else's Right Woman. Although Solomon wooed her with all his might, love could not overpower authority. She ran away and left him to seek happiness with the other thousand women in his harem. Solomon thought he could find love outside authority, but eventually, he wised up and admitted the error of his ways (Ecclesiastes 7:26).
From the smooth-talking foreign prostitute; (Proverbs 2:16)
Daniel faced the lies of mystery Babylon and overcame them with the truth of Bible Doctrine. "And you shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you free" (John 8:32). Daniel was promoted over all the teachers of religion, astrology, and the hidden mysteries of Babylon. Through Daniel, God revealed the rise and fall of empires through the rest of human history.
In a dream Daniel saw an image that represented the empires of the world (Daniel 2:32-33, 37-43). They were:
The warning to the Corinthians was:
Do you not know that he who has sex with a prostitute is one body with her? For He says, "The two will become one flesh." (1 Cor. 6:16)The warning to the Church at Pergamum was:
'But I have a few things against you, because you have there some who hold the teaching of Balaam, who kept teaching Balak to put a baited trap before the sons of Israel, to eat meat sacrificed to idols, and to practice prostitution. (Rev. 2:14)Zeus and Aphrodite were worshipped in Pergamum.
The warning to the Church at Thyatira was:
'But I have this against you, that you tolerate the woman Jezebel, who calls herself a prophetess, and she teaches and leads My bond-servants astray, so that they practice prostitution and eat things sacrificed to idols. (Rev. 2:20)The word for practicing prostitution in Revelation 2:14 and 20 is the Greek porneuvw (porneuo), which means to practice prostitution or engage in other forms of illicit sex, such as fornication. Thus, Satan attacked the early Church through the power of the Prostitute of Babylon.
Revelation 17:4-5The destruction of Satan and his demon armies at the Second Advent brought to an end the reign of the symbolic Prostitute of Babylon over the kings of the earth. Ever since the Garden of Eden, she had usurped authority in Marriage and led the nations astray.
4 And the woman was clothed in purple and scarlet, and adorned with gold and precious stones and pearls, having in her hand a gold cup full of abominations and of the unclean things of her prostitution, 5 and upon her forehead the name had been written, “MYSTERY, BABYLON THE GREAT, MOTHER OF PROSTITUTES AND ABOMINATIONS OF THE EARTH.”
John portrayed the Prostitute of Babylon riding on a wild beast. The wild beast represented Satan as the god of war, while the Prostitute represented Satan as the goddess of love. The beauty and the beast represented the relationship of Satan to the evil kings of the earth, who have succumbed to the power of love without authority through the ages.
The Evil King succumbs to Satan's lie of arrogant ambition and seeks to fulfill his power lust through Satan's power as the god of war. The Prostitute of Babylon succumbs to the love of money and seeks to fulfill her jealous desires through Satan's power as the goddess of love. The Evil King seizes power and wealth through war, while the Prostitute of Babylon usurps his authority and takes his money through love. Both the Evil King and the Prostitute of Babylon want the world. The man wants to rule it, and the woman wants to possess it. Neither will be satisfied until they have it all. Thus, they try to destroy each other (Revelation 17:15-18).
The power of the Prostitute of Babylon explains one of every two marriages ending in divorce in the USA. The problem is due to love, not authority. Marriage is an authority relationship, and divorce is a legal judgment. The decision of who to marry is not an issue of love. The best lover is not necessarily the right one. God designs the Right Woman for the Right Man, and it is God who has the authority over Marriage. Marriage is recognition of God's Sovereign Design, not an expression of undying love. True love only has a chance within the framework of the authority of Marriage. In Marriage, the man has the authority. The woman does not.
These lessons cause women to rise up in protest. They see this as slavery. On the contrary, it is the only source of freedom. The woman can only have freedom when she is protected by the authority of her Right Man. When she does not have her Right Man, the Lord will take up the slack. Obedience to true authority does not make a slave. Disobedience to authority and submission to tyranny makes a slave. Obedience to authority has nothing to do with agreeing to slavery.
Do you not know that your bodies are members of Christ? Shall I, therefore, take away the members of Christ? Shall I make them members of a prostitute? May it not be! (1 Corinthians 6:15)In the Church Age, the Prostitute of Babylon is out to destroy the Church. The Church, which is the Body of Christ and congregation of all Christians, is the Bride of Christ. The Prostitute of Babylon attempts to desecrate the Bride and destroy the love relationship between the Lord Jesus Christ and the Church. Holy matrimony symbolizes the Spiritual Love relationship between Christ and the Church. The Prostitute of Babylon is Satan's alternative to the Bride of Christ. She is Satan's most potent weapon against the Church and Marriage Culture.
Satan's counterattack through love in Marriage is an attack on Spiritual Rapport (ref. Marriage Grace). Spiritual Rapport cannot be achieved in violation of authority or by the power of love. Spiritual Rapport only comes through obedience to Bible Doctrine in the power of the Holy Spirit. Harmonious Rapport of the Right Man and Right Woman is hindered by violations of authority. Harmonious Rapport is like dancing in which the man leads. The man has to lead, however, by executing the Spiritual Life in obedience to God. When the power of love intrudes upon authority, one partner will be zigging when the other is zagging. The result will be a bumpy relationship.
The power of the Prostitute of Babylon is behind the rise of live-ins, who are violating the laws of Marriage. Live-ins get together for love apart from authority. When the woman live-in obeys her partner, it is slavery, not freedom. Live-in arrangements produce wimpy males and arrogant or enslaved females.
The power of the Prostitute of Babylon is behind sending women into combat. There are jobs in the military which women can do, but sending women into combat is a violation of the man's responsibility. The power of the Prostitute of Babylon is also behind women in positions of authority in government, police agencies, judicial systems, and churches. The Prostitute of Babylon has also infiltrated businesses throughout history. Businesses are breeding grounds for adultery and prostitution.
1 Corinthians 6:16-17"One Spirit" refers to the Filling of the Holy Spirit through Rebound. After Rebound, the appropriate Problem Solving Devices must be deployed. "Joins" is the Greek kollavw (kollao), which means to connect intimately. The intimate connection to the Lord is achieved through deployment of two Problem Solving Devices, which are Personal Love for God and Occupation with Christ.
16 Do you not know that he who has sex with a prostitute is one body with her? For He says, "The two will become one flesh." 17 But the one who joins himself to the Lord is one Spirit.
Flee fornication. Every other sin which a person may commit is outside the body, but the person who fornicates sins in one's own body. (1 Corinthians 6:18)The Spiritual solution demands that fornication and any other relationship with the Prostitute of Babylon must be cut off. This may include mental attitude adultery (Matthew 5:27-28).
For you see, you were purchased for a price: Now therefore, glorify God in your body. (1 Corinthians 6:20)Since prostitution involves money, the relationship with the Prostitute of Babylon and the love of money go hand in hand. The believer was purchased from the slave market of sin by the blood of Christ - not by money. The Christian, who was redeemed by Christ, belongs to another. He should, therefore, "glorify God" in his body. This is a command to replace the darkness of sin with the Light of the Lord. It is a command to reflect the glory of God through execution of Bible Doctrine. In other words, the Spiritual solution requires Light in the body (1 John 1:7). Walking in the Light is the sixth Problem Solving Device, which is also called Personal Sense of Destiny.
