23a2 POSITIVE I.D. OF THE ROMAN CATHOLIC CHURCH
“ The Mother of Harlots “ :
Interestingly, the Catholic church calls herself, “ The Mother of All Churches. The Pope’s church, the cathedral for the Diocese of Rome, Italy, is St. John Lateran. Because it is the Pope’s church, St. John Lateran is officially the “ Mother Church “.The St . John Lateran church at Piazza San Giovanni in Laterano Rome has a dedication plaque that translates , “ It is given by Papal and Imperial decree that I am the mother and head of all churches “ Here the woman (the church) is identified by where she came from and what she is .
Keep in mind, as previously shown, Babylon was the birth place of sun worshipping. Rev 17:5 , “ And upon her forehead was a name written, MYSTERY, BABYLON THE GREAT , THE MOTHER OF HARLOTS AND ABOMINATIONS OF THE EARTH “ .
There is only one self-proclaimed “ Mother “ church , The Universal (Catholic) Church !
The St . John Lateran church at Piazza San Giovanni in Laterano Rome is home to the world’s tallest Egyptian obelisk , which originally was made during the reign of Pharaoh Thutmoses III, it stood in the Temple of Amon in Thebes , Karnak , Egypt . Egypt was home to all Babylons sun worship customs .
Amon is the Egyptian King of the Gods or God of the sun and wind . It was removed to Rome by emperor Constantius (A.D. 317-361), and placed in the Circus Maximus . In 1587 Pope Sixtus (six=satan’s#)V unearthed the fallen , broken and long forgotten obelisk and had it repaired and placed in the Piazza S. Giovanni in Laterano . Interestingly enough, it is possible that Moses saw this very obelisk when he was in Egypt .
Now this obelisk, meant to honor the sun god, was excavated, transported thousands of miles, repaired, a new base built for it, and erected beside what Catholics call the supreme “Mother of all Churches”, the official cathedra of the bishop of Rome , the Pope !
One must ask , if Catholicism wasn’t a sun worshipping religion , why go thru all that trouble ? ? ? ? ? ? ?

There are several interesting parallels to be observed from all this;
*Egypt is the greatest symbol of sin and idol/sun worship in the Bible . The Catholic church today is the greatest symbol of sin and idol/sun worship as Satan’s great false church of counterfeit Christianity that has deceived Millions. *Like her tallest obelisk/monument of sun worship, she is taller than all the rest in her sun worship by deception , that has made her the mother of many deceived and thereby false churches . *As the father of this church, Satan is the “Father of Lies” (John 8:44), his church is the “mother” using his lies to give birth to many deceived and thereby false churches.
*This Egyptian god was Egyptian king of the Gods just as Satan is king of his demons and as Satan is the king and this church that is his queen , being , self proclaimed , “mother of all churches”. Such an evil family affair this is ! *This Egyptian god was God of the sun & wind , just as Satan is the prince of the power of the air that gives this church its power to spread like the wind , its deceptive abominations .
As recently as Pope Benedict , The Vatican published a note from Cardinal John Ratzinger, prefect (this was Pontius Pilates title !)of the Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith , in which he said in’ Dominus Iesus ‘ “ the Catholic Church could not be put on an equal footing with other denominations .
The Church in Rome is not their sister , but rather , it is the mother of all the particular churches “ …. “ that non-Catholic churches suffer from defects “ .
THIS STATEMENT IS DISTORTED SEVERAL WAYS; 1st , It is a distorted truth to say the Catholic church ‘ could not be put on equal footing with other denominations ‘ . They are far and above any other , but in a bad way . They have distorted , perverted , and replaced many , many things of Almighty God thereby distracting millions from true obedience and worship of Almighty God ! 2nd , It is a classic example of deflection this statement titled , “ Dominus lesus “ , said , “ non-Catholic churches suffer from defects “ , since ‘ lesus ‘ is a name that comes from the name Zeus as proven at the end of the previous chapter 23 .
This is a , ‘ MAJOR DEFECT ‘ of this very statement , not to mention their many other doctrinal defects , since Zeus is the equivalent of Satan ! ! ! ! ! ! ! (This is proven in chapter 119). 3rd , The document also claimed that , “ while followers of other religions may receive divine grace, they are in a gravely deficient situation, whereas Catholics have the fullness of the means of salvation “ .
Here are some more “defects” . 4th , The word religions is , mans interpretation of Almighty God and how to obey and worship Him . Man is complicated , prone to error and perverse , Almighty God is simple , direct and pure . Religion is why terrorists kill people in a so called , “ holy war “. It is also how it is used by Satan to promote error and abomination , exactly what the Catholic church has done .
Almighty God is simple , He is love . He loves us so much He gave up His only Son, YahuShua, and gave us an instruction manual for living , where He documented this sacrifice , called The Bible . So , don’t have religion , have Almighty God! 5th Religions don’t give ‘ divine grace ‘ , Almighty God does thru His Son , YahuShua . 6th The very word ‘ divine ‘ means , coming from Almighty God , not any man made church , certainly not a blatantly blasphemous Satanic false church ! They even contradict themselves ! 7th , It is those who have been deceived by this counterfiet Christianity that , ‘ are in a gravely deficient situation ‘ !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
In this brief 2 sentence statement by Satan’s Sun Synagogue, Satan was able to use all 6 types of his lies; deception, distortion, delusion, denial, distraction and deflection !
Here is what this “Mother of Harlots”, who is responsible for all this “ Abomination “ and “ Blasphemy “ of Almighty God, His Son, and His Word, looks like …………..
Revelation 17:4 ,“ I saw a woman sit upon a scarlet coloured beast,(Roman Empire) full of names of blasphemy, having seven heads and ten horns. And the woman was arrayed in purple and scarlet colour, 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 upon her forehead was a name written, Mystery, Babylon The Great, The Mother Of Harlots And Abominations Of The Earth “.
The Catholic church and its Popes , are always dressed in “purple and scarlet” and “decked with gold, precious stones and pearls” and are always associated with “golden cups “ or a with a “ Whore “, “ with a golden cup in her hand”, even by themselves , lastly as in the Catholic paintings.
Below “ Gold & precious stones
Above is Popes golden cups. It isn’t bad enough she does these things, but , she flaunts it as an arrogant whore, celebrates this “ Abomination “ and deception through Catholic commemorative coins ! ! ! ! ! !
Another Catholic commemorative coin for Pope Pius VI
This “ Purple & scarlet “ “ Whore “, “ with a golden cup in her hand ”, representing her “ Abomination “ flaunts it to the world, is even portrayed this way by themselves, in these Catholic paintings and sculptures.
Below left, Catholic commissioned painting Vasari battle of Lapanto.
English: The Battle of Lepanto. The combined Christian navel forces (Holy League) of Spain, Venice, and the Papacy defeated the Turkish fleet at Lepanto, October 7, 1571. Vasari was commissioned by Pope Pius to commemorate the event in the Sala Regia in the Vatican.

We have seen how this Whore religion looks. Now let us prove where she was born.
Here this Revelation 17:1’s “Great Whore that sits upon many waters “ (powerful worldwide false church) is identified by where she came from and what she is . Keep in mind Babylon was the birth place of sun worshipping , as proven previously .
Rev 17:5 , “ And upon her forehead was a name written, MYSTERY, BABYLON THE GREAT , THE MOTHER OF HARLOTS AND ABOMINATIONS OF THE EARTH “ .
We have already clearly seen where she was born by her Babylonian and Egyptian sun symbols and customs in her architecture, altars, customs and Now Revelation 17 connects this, plain as day, appearance, with the fact her birthplace is “ written on her forehead” ! ! ! ! ! ! !
Revelation 17:1-6 states, “ …. Come, I will show you the judgment of the Great Whore who is seated on many waters….. The woman was clothed in purple and scarlet, and adorned with gold and jewels and pearls, holding in her hand a golden cup full of abominations and the impurities of her fornication; 5and on her forehead was written a name, a mystery: ‘Babylon the great, mother of whores and of earth’s abominations.
Jeremiah 51:7 states, “ Babylon hath been a golden cup in the Lord’s hand, that made all the earth drunken: the nations have drunken of her wine; therefore the nations are mad. “ “ Mad “, spiritually drunk/blind to her deceptions !
1 Peter 5:13 also refers to Rome as Babylon. Peter wrote these words while in Rome, at a time when literal Babylon no longer existed !
“ The church that is at Babylon, elected together with you, saluteth you; and so doth Marcus my son. “
Surprisingly enough, even Roman Catholics acknowledge this association:
“ Babylon,” from which Peter addresses his first Epistle, is understood by learned annotators, Protestant and Catholic, to refer to Rome – the word Babylon being symbolic of the corruption then prevailing in the city of the Caesars. “ Source: Faith of Our Fathers, by James Cardinal Gibbons, 111th printing, Published by TAN …
Here are some other historical facts linking Babylon to Rome :
* Following the conquest of Mesopotamia by the Persians and King Cyrus the Babylonian priesthood fled to Pergamum in Asia Minor here they erected the Acropolis temples of Pergamum in honor of the Greek pantheon but continued to worship the Babylonian Mystery God under the name Saturnus. Many of the Babylonian Mysteries were preserved in the Temple of Zeus at Pergamon .
Revelation 2:12 states, “ And to the angel of the church in Pergamos write, ‘These things says He who has the sharp two-edged sword: “ I know your works, and where you dwell, where Satan’s throne is. And you hold fast to My name, and did not deny My faith even in the days in which Antipas was My faithful martyr, who was killed among you, where Satan dwells. “
Pergamos was called, ‘ The Temple Keeper of Asia “, because it was the center of Satanic/Pagan worship, that was carried over from Babylon, in that part of the Roman Empire. These Traditions were transferred directly to Rome in 133 BC when at Attalus III died without an heir and bequeathed his kingdom to Rome. The origin of the number 666 in 133 BC when the Babylonian solar called was bequeathed to Rome by a Attalus III.
There its symbols and forms were incorporated into the cult of Caesar and later into Roman Catholicism. The numbers in the Babylonian solar tables 6 rows total up to 111 for each row column and even the diagonals for a grand total of 666. The penetration of the religion of Babylon became so pervasive that Rome was called the new Babylon.
Add to this, her “ Babylon “ “ Great Whore “, “ Mother of Harlots “ status is even confirmed by the fact she herself proclaims to be “ Mother of all churches “, “ The Universal Church “ !
Rev 18:3 , “ For all nations have drunk of the wine of the wrath of her fornication, and the kings of the earth have committed fornication with her, and the merchants of the earth are waxed rich through the abundance of her delicacies.
The cup of wine of the apostate woman (church) represents spiritual and doctrinal fornication, a mixing of truth and error , Christianity and pagan sun worship , which she has taught to the world (made the nations drink). Thru Satan’s powers of deception, the world has been made spiritually “ drunk “ , as in a drunken haze, unable to see her obvious lies and these obvious truths, of who she really is.
It isn’t bad enough she does these things, but , she arrogantly, as a manner less whore, celebrates this “ Abomination “ and deception through Catholic commemorative coins ! ! ! ! ! The first 2 Vatican commemorative coins show a cup with sun symbol and sun rays emanating from it , and 3rd has sun-rays around her head, as she has a celebratory toast to sun worship , held up to the nations .
The next images shows the symbol of the sun god Baal/Nimrod behind a image supposed to be Christ. I say supposed to be, because,1 He would not have a 8 point sun symbol of Baal/Satan/Shamash/Nimrod behind Him and He did not have long hair. 1st Corinthians 11:14 states, “ Does not even nature itself teach you, that if a man has long hair, it is a shame to him ? “
That is Satan’s Catholic GOAL, because Christ qualified to DE-THRONE him as god of this world !
AND SOON WILL ! ! ! ! ! ! !
To shame Him by showing Him with long hair, suffering on a symbol of Tammuz.
To “ shame “ Christ by calling the Pope a mediator between Almighty God and man, when Christ is the only mediator(1st Timothy 2:5). By calling Him a Name that says “Hail/hey-Zeus/Satan, Jesus.(Gee-zeus) By associating the Light of the Worlds birth with a sun worshipping day, the darkest day of the year, Dec. 25, the Winter Solstice. (which He never said to celebrate anyway). By changing His day of Resurrection from a Holy Saturday/Sabbath, to a Satanic, Sun-day, day of sun worship. By instituting a sun worship Spring Equinox, fertility celebration(where people had sex orgies and babies were sacraficed to drink their blood, to please fertility gods) to remember His Resurrection when people have a feast of the most disgusting scavenger animal of the farm, the pig, listed as “unclean” to eat in the Bible (Leviticus 11:7), to honor Christ, the One that makes us clean ! ! ! ! ! ! !
The next image you see the reverse side of a coin celebrating the pontificate of John Paul II, on it the world capitol of sun worship , the Vatican Piazza , and a very distinct sunburst emanating from the Piazza , the Courtyard forms a giant 8 point sunwheel / sundial , with the Obelisk from Heliopolis Egypt , City of the Sun , as its pointer, casting a shadow at marked location, on the Solar Equinoxes and Solstices ! The correlation of the symbolism is striking .
The Church across the street from my house:
I have saved the best, most graphically visual example of Catholic sun worship, for last . I didn’t have to do any research at all. Finally the church across from where I live, was recently refurbished , over a 1-1/2 year period and obviously very expensive project , to restore the sun like brilliance on its dome and the golden appearance on its fertility symbol of Mary, that serves as an obelisk, pointing toward the sun, atop the sun dome !
Worship of anything over Almighty God , anything of creation over the Creator, any symbol of creation, any symbol (false statue or wafer)of Christ, any statue of Mary, anything made with hands, comes from Satan and is sun/Satan worship, not SON worship ! ! ! ! ! ! !
