Mystery Babylon Part 2

The Babylonian Imperial System

I am arguing that the story of the fall of man reveals that the "secret knowledge" of good and evil (as given by the Anunaki to the Sons of the Serpent) was how to build (example: Masons are builders, and this is their "craft") a totalitarian system of total human control, in order to rule the lives of the "uninitiated barbarians" and exist as gods on earth. I am also arguing that this explains the doctrine of orignial sin, because the fall of the Serpent Seed has affected all of us, and we have wittingly or unwittingly participated in this fall up to this very day because of the systems they have created, and forced us to live under. I will refer to this systme as the Babylonian Imperial System which has SIX (the number of man) characteristics:

1. A powerful military/police state structure .that is well financed and is given powers to enforce orders, and destroy rebels.

This is the foundational societal institution in Babylon, and is the classic sign that the Babylonian Empire has emerged. This is because this imperial system is fundamentally exploitive and as a result it will cause anger and apathy in the population, and in vassal kingdoms, which must be tightly controlled or the empire will begin to crumble. If necessary, the empire will use its highly trained and well financed military and police to destroy or kill those who dare to want change. This is what happened to Judah when Zedekiah, the puppet King of Nebuchadnezzar, rebelled. His kingdom was destroyed, his people massacred and enslaved, and the Solomonic Temple was burned to the ground. Zedekiah was then forced to watch his sons executed, then his eyes were torn out, and he was beheaded. The Babylonian Imperial System must be feared in order to keep control.

2. Hierarchical, Pyramid Control Structure.

Babylonian Imperial Systems and their supporting institutions are always based upon hierarchy, symbolized by the pyramid, or Ziggurat. This makes sense since this organizing symbol guarantees power is concentrated in the hands of a privileged few, and a large number of powerless people remain at the bottom who can easily be dominated and controlled by being forced to fight with each other for the ascending space on the pyramid. And, by using the religious symbol of a pyramid, it imparts a message of divine authority which can easily be transferred into social relationships as “the divine wants us to rule, and for the majority to be our servants.” As a result, any effective revolt against imperial power can be nullified as each person is too busy fighting his neighbor for a competitive edge, even though they will likely never rise very far above their low station. Hierarchy also links empire symbolically with Egypt; the home of the Great Pyramids, and along with Mesopotamia, the world’s first empires. It also links empire symbolically to the Exodus, God’s magnificent event of liberation for those trapped at the bottom of the pyramid, which foreshadows what may well happen in our lifetime.

3. A well financed, organized, and committed propaganda machine to sell the empire’s vision of the world to the population and other empires, and to get them all to agree freely to live their lives according to the rules dictated by the command structure.

The empire must present themselves as good, peaceful, and decent and the world they have created must be presented as natural and just. Violence works best as a threat; if it is applied in its most brutal forms in all cases, then the population will become mobilized to fight back. Empires must gain the cooperation of most citizens, and convince them to accept the kingdom/empire freely. This can only happen through manipulation, lies, and other tricks which are all called propaganda. Babylon was a considered seat of culture and architecture, Rome was thought to be an empire of justice, Egypt was considered an enlightened center of science, mathematics, and religion. Babylonian Imperial Systems need a good propaganda machine to cover up the evil that supports their existence.

4. Economic and Political Power held mostly in the hands of a small elite, with a large middle class of managers and functionaries to help oversee and organize the accumulation of further wealth for the elites (like the task masters in Egypt during the Exodus), and a much larger group of poor and outcasts who are trapped in ruin, misery, and suffering.

The suffering on the part of the lowest members of society, who comprise the largest number of people, is rationalized as a failure in the individual, their race or religion, or both as a means of scapegoating and domination, but it also serves to help the elites to alleviate their conscience, which may be convicting them based upon their plundering, dominating behavior. Kingdoms/empires seem metaphysically to have to exist in a world in which the weak are deliberately dominated, exploited, murdered and abused, and where everyone believes this is natural and appropriate. It is as if their reason for existence depends on having large numbers of powerless people to dominate, exploit, and control. This seems to argue in favor of my thesis that the powerless are God’s people, and as such are attacked as enemies.

5. Apostate Religious Authority that supports the prevailing system giving it “divine authority” by which it benefits economically/socially as a result of its support.

Apostate Religious Authority, while not as foundational as the Police State structure, is perhaps empire’s most critical institution of support because it provides a divine mandate for the hierarchical system (which Apostate Religion also uses to its advantage) and support for the following lies as expressed by the imperial system:
• That God (or the gods) has blessed and chosen the empire, and the elites who control it, to be great, powerful, and rich thus giving them a divine mandate to dominate, accumulate obscene amounts of wealth, and use violence as a means of control.
• That the middle class must work harder and be more obedient to authority in order to advance in the divine kingdom. If that happens, God (the elites) will reward them through money, status, material goods, and community recognition.
• That the poor and marginalized are being punished by God or the gods, and that, while they may suffer now, God will reward their patient endurance in the next life. In other words, it is God’s will that they suffer now, are exploited, and have no hope, so they should accept it and not complain.
• In some extreme cases, the Apostate Religious Authority is given sanction to abuse and dominate the poor in a manner similar to the empire as a reward for their fidelity to the cause. Examples include the Inquisition, the role of churches in the European conquest and colonization of the New World, the sexual abuse of children by Catholic priests and the cover-up by Ecclesiastical Authorities. In our day and age, the Apostate American Evangelical Church fully supports wars which cause harm and suffering to the poor and powerless around the world and at home. This confirms Apostate Religion as the Harlot of Revelation, drunk on the blood of the saints.

6. Attacks against true religion, and those who practice it.

In the West, agnosticism, devotion to pleasure and distraction, atheism, money and power, are presented by Hollywood and the Media as positive expressions of a clear thinking mind, while committed religious people are vilified as closed minded zealots and fanatics. Apostate Religious Authority confirms this view by presenting itself as opposed to science, debate, discussion, peace, and democracy, and interested only in the sexual and reproductive sins and temptations of the faithful. In America, it supports imperial ambitions, and is silent on its abuses. We pray for American troops, as we should, yet we do not pray for the millions slaughtered in war by America and the West. Churches punish gays but reward soldiers who murder in the name of God and Country. Mainline Apostate Churches such as the Catholic Church, or Episcopal Church, are in decline making membership seem pointless. Even if one joins a local mainline denomination, they are rarely challenged intellectually or spiritually, and simply sit in a pew every Sunday in an apathetic state of suspended animation, ensuring no real change will happen. Other denominations are more emotional, but try to use emotion and enthusiasm as a way of creating a religious ideologue who is more robot than disciple. He/she can then be easily mobilized to achieve certain political objectives which support the empire (Teri Shiaivo). As a result, true religion never emerges to challenge the heresy of Apostate Religion, or the Beast of Empire. If true religion ever does emerge as a movement for change, the leader of the movement is target for personal attacks, and if this fails, he/she is eliminated. This usually stops the movement dead in its tracks, and allows the kingdom/empire/Apostate Religion to claim the leader and movement as its own by creating memorials, or by recognizing them as a saint, which of course pacifies the vast majority of people who are victims of their already powerful propaganda machine. A great example of this is the Reverend Martin Luther King, who when he was alive was called a communist, traitor, anti-christ, was assassinated, and now that he is dead, everyone deeply connected to the American Imperial System invokes his name with reverence to make themselves seem righteous. It is the Beast of Revelation with the Mouth of a Lamb, hypocrites who destroy the righteous and then use their memory to control and dominate.

(you may refer also to this link H:\Dragon Society - Real History, Dragon Philosophy and The Importance of Royal Bloodlines.htm which details the divine right of Kings, which sheds further light on the Babylonian Imperial System)

The Babylonian Imperial System appears to have emerged in a powerful and organized way about 8000 BCE, which would make sense since this is the time period that the Sons of the Serpent first begin to spread out through the known world.

According to

"So how did this state of affairs came to be. Domination systems, dominator cultures, and hierarchical societies arose at the time of the Domestication revolution. approximately 8000 BC. According to this timeline, "The availability for the first time in human history of a dependable food supply ...made it possible to support larger societies. .... food surpluses became common.... freed some workers to do other forms of work, such as crafts leading to the division of labor. Surplus food and crafts were traded with others. (Trade) Durable goods could now be saved and some people accumulated more than others. (Accumulation of valued goods) People now had possessions worth fighting over. (Feuds and wars over possessions). Captives from battles were forced to do less appealing work. (Slavery) Some people accumulated much over time while others accumulated little. (Inequality increased). The wealthy wanted to pass their benefits on to their children. (Wealth became hereditary) Wealth and power became concentrated in the hands of a few. (Power becomes concentrated and chiefs, kings, and feudal society emerged). With the agricultural revolution 5500 BC "The invention of the plow drawn by animals made agricultural production vastly more efficient than before permitting far more land to be farmed by fewer people. This resulted in an even greater food surplus. It also freed far more people for other types of work, creating an even greater division of labor. Jared Diamond details some of the additional specifics of the process.
According to Walter Wink, since the time of Babylon (1250 BC): "The story that the rulers of domination societies told each other and their subordinates is what we today might call the Myth of Redemptive Violence. It enshrines the belief that violence saves, that war brings peace, that might makes right. It is one of the oldest continuously repeated stories in the world."

This historical situation can be confirmed in Genesis 4. Cain, a tiller of the soil murders his brother Abel, a shepherd. The Bible seems to be giving us a clue here: the emerging farming states, which become Babylonian Empires, are based upon domination of the weak. The knowledge of good and evil offered by the serpent is nothing more than the domination and murder of the weak accomplished by total insitiutional control of every aspect of human life. This process will enshrine the Serpent Seed as gods, who know and create the conditions of life and death, right and wrong, truth and falsehood. This is whay they are called the Sons of Cain, because Cain is their spiritual ancestor.

Mystery Babylon

What is Mystery Babylon? In this post, I am attempting to argue that it is a religious cult that has ruled the world for centuries, who call themselves the Sons of the Serpent, the Serpent Seed, the Brotherhood of the Dragon, or other such names. The post is a bit long, and for that I apologize, but I feel strongly that this is the issue of our time, the Mystery that must be revelaed in order to bring them out of the shadows once and for all. I will post it in parts to make it easier to read

Part One: The Sons of the Serpent and the Babylonian Imperial System

The link below explains the Sons of the Serpent from the perspective of the secret societies dedicated to their teachings. It is useful for gathering information; however one should proceed with caution because some links deal with Magik and its application.

An interesting quote from the above link:
IT is probably no great exaggeration to state that the subjects we are covering in our work have inspired the pens of so many hack writers, the result being that tons of rubbish have been printed in the years since Gutenberg revolutionized moveable type. The subjects of this chapter, the Ophites, and, in general, the Serpent Cult, is no exception. The Serpent Cult is no dead artifact: it survives today. It is not some heinous bogey-man, out to lure innocent people away from the truth, whoever they are, and what ever THAT is.
Serpent worship figures prominently in Judaeo-Christianity, even the the so-called Christian of today is discouraged from it and told that the Serpent is the symbol of humankind's eternal damnation. Yet, were that the case, why was the Brazen Serpent a prominent feature in the religion of the Israelites until Hezekiah, the fanatic, destroyed it? And, if Serpent Worship is evil, as today's Christian is told to believe, by those responsible for telling them to believe it, then why did the Lord Jesus say to be wise as serpents? Or, why did he say that even as Moses lifted up the Serpent in the wilderness, so shall the Son of Man be lifted up? If anything, he was alluding to a fact of the Kabbalah, known to the Wise: that the Serpent = NaChaSh = 358 = MaShICh = Messiah. True, Gematria did not come into vogue until much later, but the Sethian Ophites regarded Seth as the Anointed One, the Messiah; and Seth, we have seen, is syncretized with Agathodaimon, by the Harranians.
It is, then, in the sect of Ophites that we find the earliest forms of the "Authentic Christianity" -- or, should we say, The Authentic Tradition in Christianity -- as far as the Initiatic Tradition is concerned. The Ebionites represented the Exoteric, public movement. The Esoteric current is that we have spoken of concerning the traditions that pass from the Ophites to the Dositheans to the Simonians to the Naasseni, to the Carpocratians, to the Phibionites, to the Sethians, to the Sethian Ophites, to the Barbelo-Gnostics, to the Borborites; to the Nusairi, to the Harranians, Druzes, and Yezidis: and from these again, to the Rose+Croix (SION + The Temple); to the Rosicrucians, Freemasons, Illuminati, the Asiatic Brethren; to the Thelemites and to ourselves, a composite of all of the above.

The quote above confirms my hypothesis that the Sons of the Serpent see Judaeo-Christianity as their biggest threat, and that they have tried repeatedly, and are still trying, to discredit the faith of Judaism and Christianity and reshape it as a form of serpent worship. This has been their purpose since Christianity overthrew Pagan Rome over 2000 years ago. They retained political and economic power, but lost the religious power that would return them to the status of gods on earth. Through what I will term later in this paper Apostate Religious Authority, they hope to undermine, discredit, pervert, and destroy the monotheistic religions of Judaism, Christianity, and Islam, and wreak vengeance upon God’s people. I believe this is called symbolically the War of Gog and Magog outlined in Revelation Chapter 20:

7And when the thousand years are expired, Satan shall be loosed out of his prison,
8And shall go out to deceive the nations which are in the four quarters of the earth, Gog, and Magog, to gather them together to battle: the number of whom is as the sand of the sea.
9And they went up on the breadth of the earth, and compassed the camp of the saints about, and the beloved city: and fire came down from God out of heaven, and devoured them.
10And the devil that deceived them was cast into the lake of fire and brimstone, where the beast and the false prophet are, and shall be tormented day and night for ever and ever.

Below is a link to a map from the above source above which shows the area of the world where the beliefs of the Sons of the Serpent were prevalent. As you can see, the Serpent Seed were quite active and influential in the area of the world we call the Cradle of Civilization.

The knowledge gained by the Sons of the Serpent was thought to have been given by a group of powerful spiritual beings known by a variety of names, the most well recognized name for them being what the Sumerians called them; the Annunaki. Even though this knowledge was kept secretly, and held by a very small group of well connected elites, it has affected every human being on the planet because the knowledge has been widely disseminated to powerful elites, and used to manipulate, control, and dominate large groups of people through what I will call the Babylonian Imperial System. Theologically, the effect of this system on all of humanity was called original sin. Original Sin states that humanity inherited a propensity towards evil that has been transmitted to each generation. This doctrine becomes clearer and more supportable when we discover the origins and development of the Serpent Seed and its influence throughout human history through the Babylonian Imperial System.

The complete knowledge that the Sons of the Serpent are said to possess is impossible to completely know. However, it was symbolized in the Book of Genesis by the Tree of the Knowledge of Good and Evil, the Tower of Babylon, and in the Story of the Nephilim, the Fallen Ones. The bible says clearly that this knowledge leads to death; however the serpent character in Genesis 3 claims that the knowledge would give one the ability to be a god, knowing good and evil. Clearly they cannot both be right, and the biblical narrative confirms that God is not the liar, the serpent is. The Bible also indicates that those who received this knowledge fell from a previous state of grace and eternal life, called the Fall, or Original Sin, and became something different, something lower and more depraved. This entire situation is presented as a catastrophe in scripture that gets progressively worse until creation itself rises up in a deluge of water which destroys the world in a fury of divine wrath. However after the deluge, the story shifts from one of fall and death to one of hope and salvation, as a man named Abram from the region of Babylon (Ur of the Chaldees) receives a message to Come out of Babylon and enter a land I will show you. This man by faith obeys this invitation, and thus begins the story of how the Sons of the Serpent, and their father Satan the accuser, will be overcome and their sin corrected, ultimately through a descendant of Abram, Jesus of Nazareth, and his faithful followers. It is a story that may well be concluding in our time period, the 21st century. Of course, this is the scriptural point of view, and that is the point of view that I will take in this paper. The Sons of the Serpent have a very different story to tell. However as Jesus tells us, the Devil (serpent/dragon) is a liar, and was a liar from the beginning. It is time to tell the truth again.

And while it is almost impossible to know all of the secret knowledge imparted to the Serpent Seed, I will argue that it was the most destructive and dominating knowledge, which constitutes the fall or original sin, was how to create a world system apart and separate from God, one that they would control and dominate in such a way that the Sons of the Serpent and their Annunaki Masters would be seen as gods, who know (create) the conditions of good and evil, life and death. This system is what I have termed the Babylonian Imperial System.

MOUNT ZION, The City of God

The word Zion actually means ‘fortification.’ Zion is both the City of David and the City of God. As the Bible progresses, the word Zion is transitioned from being a physical city to a spiritual context. The spiritual Zion and the promises attached to it are a cause for great joy and peace.

The term ‘fortification’ conjures up a sense of strength, protection and safety. As it well should. A safe place in the midst of a raging storm, or defense and protection amidst the enemy.

Zion was originally the name of the ancient Jebusite fortress in the city of Jerusalem. Zion came to stand not only for the fortress itself but also for the city of Jerusalem in which the fortress stood. After King David captured the fortress of Zion it was then called the City of David, and God dwelled there with His people.

When David’s son Solomon built the temple in Jerusalem, the word Zion was expanded in meaning to include also the temple and the area surrounding it. Zion was eventually used as a name for the city of Jerusalem, the land of Judah and the people of Israel as a whole.

The most important use of the word Zion is when it is used figuratively in the spiritual sense for the true Israel, the people of God, for it is God’s spiritual kingdom.

Isaiah 12:1-6
1And in that day thou shalt say, O LORD, I will praise thee: though thou wast angry with me, thine anger is turned away, and thou comfortedst me. 2Behold, God is my salvation; I will trust, and not be afraid: for the LORD JEHOVAH is my strength and my song; he also is become my salvation. 3Therefore with joy shall ye draw water out of the wells of salvation. 4And in that day shall ye say, Praise the LORD, call upon his name, declare his doings among the people, make mention that his name is exalted. 5Sing unto the LORD; for he hath done excellent things: this is known in all the earth. 6Cry out and shout, thou inhabitant of Zion: for great is the Holy One of Israel in the midst of thee

Just as surely as God was with David in conquering Zion as well as with Solomon while building the temple, He is with us. We are told that the Lord loveth the gates of Zion, (Psalms 87:1-2) more than all the dwellings of Jacob. We are also shown that the highest Himself shall establish Zion (Psalms 87:5).

For Zion’s sake will I not hold my peace, and for Jerusalem’s sake I will not rest, until the righteousness thereof go forth as brightness, and the salvation thereof as a lamp that burneth. Isaiah 62:1

Joel 3:16 The LORD also shall roar out of Zion, and utter his voice from Jerusalem; and the heavens and the earth shall shake: but the LORD will be the hope of his people, and the strength of the children of Israel. So shall ye know that I am the LORD your God dwelling in Zion, my holy mountain: then shall Jerusalem be holy, and there shall no strangers pass through her any more.

He tells us in Isaiah 62:12 that His holy people will be redeemed, called and sought out. A city not forsaken.A fortress built and established by God Himself. For His people; fully protected and strengthened by Him. Being sought out by the Lord is a tremendous blessing all by itself.

One day the real Zion will really stand up. It will not be by our own power, but by the very power that breathed life into Adam’s nostrils, the power that will destroy evil; the One who gives and takes away, Jesus Christ our Savior. Our refuge in the most literal sense of the word.
