Archeologists Discover A 4000 Year Old Archeological Find Linking Allah To Lucifer And The “Harlot Religion”

By Walid Shoebat and Theodore Shoebat

4000 years old is as close as we can get to connecting how old is “Allah” as deity, his relation to the great rebellion, sex, war … everything.

Amid excavations at four different ancient sites in the Central Anatolian province of Yozgat in the Uşaklı Mound at the Büyük Taşlık village in Turkey there laid a cuneiform tablet unearthed after laying there for 4000 years (2,000 B.C.) The cuneiform tablet in the Sorgun district of Yozgat shows symbols of Ishtar, known as the Hittite goddess of love, war, fertility and sexuality. Ishtar or “the queen of harlots” goddess was found mentioned more clearly in this cuneiform than those on any other unearthed tablets.

Linking Ishtar to other archaeologic relics, also written in the same cuneiform is the Epic of Atrahasis cuneiform dating just as far back in ancient history (1700-1800 B.C.), which reveal that this ancient deity known as Ishtar and the snake beast god known as Ishtaran another name for “Allah” who is literally mentioned in the epic by name and was a transvestite (dual male and female nature).

Ishtar Cuneiform

The The Epic of Atrahasis is the Mesopotamian account of the Great Flood, which was a corruption of the biblical account in Genesis where Satan rebelled against Yahweh. The amazing epic translated by archeologists who did not coverup the name “Allah” at the beginning of the epic where all of the gods are laboring in slavery for the head deity, Enlil, and then one rebellious deity named “Allah” then revolts against Enlil where Enlil crushes the rebellion and then defeats Allah who was also called Tammuz in Sumerian mythology. Yet this defeat of the rebellion caused by this god of war “Allah” is not considered evil, but his loss is lamented over:

Alas the lad, the warrior Ninazu! Alas the lad, my lad, my Damu! Alas the lad, the child Ningishzida! Alas the lad, Allah, owner of the net!…The shepherd, lord Dumuzi, bridegroom of Inanna … [The bitter cry for him! the bitter] cry [for him!] [The bitter] cry for the captive D[umuzi!] The bitter cry [for] the captive Ama-ushumgal-anna! Woe the lad, the child Ningishzida! Woe the lad, Ishtaran of shining visage! Woe the lad, Allah, owner of the net![2]

Epic of Atrahasis

Allah, Allat, Tammuz … these were different names to the same deity, Allah, who in the Epic is referred to as  Ishtaran who according to archeology is “the beast and symbol of Ištaran, as frequently represented on kudurrus, is a snake“. Biblically, from Genesis “the snake” to Revelation “the beast” these are associated to Lucifer and the devil who caused such rebellion by transforming himself into a snake with four legs then lured Eve. On a side note, while some think that a four legged snake is myth, archeologists earthing fossil records prove that a snake with four legs is a fact, the snake must have then devolved, not evolved.

Another link to Lucifer in the Bible is Venus and the pagan deity Sin which historically both link to Allah, the ancient deity, which is not only the “moon-god” Sin (Nanna to the Sumerians) but also to the star and crescent (often identified as Venus) with Ishtar (Inanna to the Sumerians). Even the Bible links Venus to Isaiah 14:12 to Helel (Crescent) ben Shahar (morning star) identifying the Lucifer possessing the Antichrist becoming the King of Babylon.

venus-morning-star

The Babylonian name of Venus, at certain times of the year were viewed star of Venus and crescent

Ishtar/Allah was originally a male deity of Venus for the Akkadian Arabs, and after settling into Mesopotamia from Yemen, became Athtar with the Sumerian goddess of Venus Inanna, and would become the Babylonian Ishtar. [3] Ishtar was the Arabian Allat, [4] the female consort of Allah who was so revered by the Mesopotamians that they had called her Um-Uruk, or “the mother of the town of Erech,” [5] an infamous city of ancient Iraq.

Since Allat (Ishtar) was the feminine root of Allah, and was worshipped in Mesopotamia, and equal to the Sumerian Inanna, since they were both Venus goddesses, we should be able to find Allah associated with this goddess, based on inscriptions.

In fact, we do, a Sumerian verse which directly identifies “Allah” with the bridegroom of Inanna, Dumuzi or Tammuz who was an ancient deified king who once ruled the city-state of Erech, or Uruk, as the fourth king of its First Dynasty, [6] at around—according to Kramer—the third millennium B.C.,[7] and whose death was ritually lamented by the Sumerians.[8]

In essence, this “Mother of Harlots” which ruled the kings of the earth from ancient times until now is  this transvestite deity Allah whose worship covers the entire region, then, and until now. So when Muslims roam roundabout the black stone it is a throwback to the worship of Ishtar, whom they called Athtar and Allat. St. John of Damascus said that the image of the Black Stone in the Kaaba in Mecca, is really an idol of Aphrodite porne, which is really just a Greek rendition of saying Allat or Ishtar, the harlot goddess.

The cuneiform of Ishtar, the goddess harlot discovered in Turkey and the worship of this Allah relates to the Kaaba in ancient times. In other words, from a biblical perspective, the facade of this harlot religion never changed and simply adopted monotheism. Christians were instructed to beware of a religion that “look like a lamb,” which in other words, seems like the real deal, but is a prostitute religion which “speaks like a dragon”. In other words it utters blasphemies. Even the imagery given in Revelation speaks of this harlot decked in gold, silver, jewels and adorned as a queen. Allah’s residence in Arabia lays an effeminate structure covered with pure silk black dress and is considered by Muslims to be a woman’s dress. The Kaaba’s attire is called “Kiswa/Kuswa” which even the prominent historian Edward Gibbons elaborated on this:

“…the kuswa of the magnificent Kaaba, is what is used for clothing of a [virtuous] covering, on top of it, it is written, the Kaaba’s dressing, meaning ‘we have dressed her her dress.” [9]

Whoever dreamt that the “seven towers” of ancient extinct Babel exists today and is literally called “Babel”? Any doubting Thomas needs to visit Mecca and see (be advised if you’r not Muslim and enter Mecca you could get beheaded). Al-Sharq Al-Awasat, the prominent Middle East Newspaper names Mecca’s great project and the choice where it was built is atop the mountain that is literally called “Mount Babel” as it is called today and in history:

“The project Towers Of The House is the first project in Mecca … which carry seven towers … “Towers Of The House” is on the area of Mount Babel in Ajyad. The site overlooks directly on the Haram al-Sharif (Holy House [Ka’ba]).”

“is also the largest tower in the world in terms of area. Contractor Bin Laden Group, Saudi Arabia … Classified as the largest building urban in terms of the total area on the face of the globe, where excess space land for the project 1.4 million square meters and consists of 7 towers”.

And just as archeologists ignored the literal reference to Allah in the Epic of Atrahasis no one in the prophecy arena has even raised a single red flag about the significance on how this harlot is described and is biblically linked to Ishtar and Babylon or how it is destroyed in the end. Isaiah links Iran vs. Saudi Arabia to what we see today in the Iran Nuclear Deal. According to Isaiah, Iran (biblical Elam) must destroy Arabia and John levels similar destruction to what seems to be the harlot’s abode in a distant desert. The house of Allah, while Isaiah 14 talks of Lucifer’s rebellion, in Isaiah 21:9, God finally ends it leveling a prophetic oracle against this harlot, the root cause of this rebellion. “Elam, attack!” says Isaiah (v2) leveling this prophetic oracle specifically against Arabia (v13) even referring to Arabia as  “Babylon is fallen is fallen” (v9) using the same announcement in Revelation 18:1-2 and Revelation 14:8 against the harlot city: “Babylon is fallen, is fallen”:

“‘Babylon has fallen, has fallen!” (Isaiah 21:9)

“The burden against Dumah” (Isaiah 21:11)

“The burden against Arabia” (Isaiah 21:13)

“All the glory of Kedar will fail” (Isaiah 21:16)

And to see the nuclear effect, again, a few chapters before, the destruction of Babylon is described as being absolute and complete “I will sweep it with the broom of destruction” (Isaiah 12:15).

“The broom of destruction” seems like footage of a nuclear explosion all with the fury and the power of the ominous cloud that sweeps up everything in its path. This woman (the Kaaba), as the Muslim myth has it, is Bab-Illah (Bab-El / Babel) the Gate Door to Allah decked with gold and silver with declarations which the Bible considers utterly blasphemous since it denies The Father and The Son.

Ancient history as it seems still continues, and it is still guised as “true religion”.

    Incredible how Zeus’ origin parrallels allah’s beginning as well. Always a rebellion against the higher power. Hmm.

    • ChiRho

      I believe the Yzidis is the same. It was one of those magic pagan whatevers that saw him as the good guy who rebeled against the Creator because He wasnt nice or something, but shiney beautiful peacock/ fire god/ satan was the unjustly treated rebel. Funny the paralells in reverse, like Mahdi also. Their good guy fits the Bible’s bad guy and the Bible’s good guy fits their bad guy description.

      • Trevor

        There is another story called the Epic of Gigamelesh (sp?) who was known for his “heroic” deed in beheadings a chief god. I don’t know if it is any credible.

          You probably mean Gilgamesh.

          • Trevor

            That’s the one. Thank, that’s a hard name for me to spell.

            +1 for you, sir.

          • Daniel Mrg

            No problem, sir.

        • Gilgamesh is in fact where you people get your Noah story.
          Wow. You all need to stop buying this crap and do some work.

          • How do you know that? Just because it was written down before the Torah? There are hundreds of Flood stories in cultures around the world. Why? Because there was a real global flood in ancient times. So of course the Sumerians would have written about it–everybody remembered it. That doesn’t negate the validity of the Torah.

          • william allan

            FLOOD, outside of NOAH and the SUMERIAN, the chinese emporer YAO has the best recorded flood about 2340 bc, about half the known population died

          • Carl Mayo

            there are hundreds of flood legends around the world, told by civilizations that were completely separate from each other. shouldn’t that tell you something?

        • ChiRho

          Gilgamesh has basically the Sumerian watered down (no pun intended) version of Noah’ Ark I believe. I wouldn’t be surprised if it has other OT stories mixed up with paganism from around the M.E. in it too.

          • Trevor

            I see several things. A twisted version of the Flood, basis for the Greek mythology, and a connection to nimrod.

          • ChiRho

            Yeah I havent read it, just heard some, watched a show on it. But with a lot of false old religions you can see where they had some of the original knowledge, then let pagan fantasy mix in and it became somthing different.

          • Trevor

            The Greek did conquer the Middle East which makes me wonder if that is how they created their myth.

            Studying those was a source of fascination for me but do I believe it? No.

            In the epic of Gilgamesh, Ishtar was the goddess of love, the Greek equalivalent of Aphrodite or Roman’s Venus. You can see a lot of parallels.

          • ChiRho

            Epic of Gilgamesh was written long before Greece conquered the ME though.
            I hope you dont think I was ac using you of believing that. I was just saying it’s interesting how you can see where pagan make believe gets mixed in with the original stories and you get stuff like this.

          • Trevor

            No, I don’t think you were accusing. Yes, it’s interesting to see how mythology are influenced by other sources.

          • jayb1

            The Gilgamesh Story is much, much older than the Bible which wasn’t put into one Scroll until about 300 BC when the Greeks arrived. Before that most of what is in the Bible was word of mouth of Stories from Egypt, Babylon & the local Indigenous religions of the people of the Levant.

          • ChiRho

            A written down copy of Gilgamesh was preserved dating back to earlier than the when the entire Septuagint was written sure, but much of the Bible didn’t even take place until after the time of The Flood. That doesn’t mean the actual story of Gilgamesh is older than the story of Noah and the Ark.
            One cannot ‘prove’ which story was first. It’s a matter of faith. Faith in the True God of all creation, or faith in the opinion of some modern day researchers (or even pagans).
            And actually what is in the Bible is not “word of mouth of stories from Egypt, Babylon & the local Indigenous religions of the people of the Levant.” Those mixed-religion stories were kept out of the Bible. Sure different peoples in those areas mixed beliefs throughout time, but the Bible is the collection of books that were deemed accurate and true, versus fiction and and/or having been influenced by the religions/legends/ beliefs of those outside the True Faith in surrounding localities.
            That is why you will find similarities in some instances like Gilgamesh, but the details are very different. The extra-Hebrew influences were deliberately kept out to preserve accuracy and Truth. Some of the Hebrews were indeed periodically influenced by surrounding cultures, but they didn’t change their Holy Scrolls, they abandoned them. And of course what follows is another matter of faith, but there are ways of inferring accuracy and a lack of change over time due to seriousness in complete preservation of the original. Look at the dead sea scrolls, for example. A part of the book of Isaiah dating centuries (I want to say about 1100 or 1300 years) prior to the oldest copy of it previously held was discovered early last century. When examined, the ‘new’ older version was around 96-98% the same as the copy from 11 or 13 centuries later. What’s more is the differences that were found were things like punctuation, not the details of what was said.
            There’s a lot of modern attempts to discredit the validity of the Bible by bitter atheist professors, but in reality their attempts are shallow and based more on personal agenda than factual evidence.

        • Flicker

          The tomb of a giant, Gilgamesh was found in April of 2003. A German team had been working it for decades. A few days later the US declared war on Iraq (named after Uruk, the capital city of Gilgamesh), and took the body of Gilgamesh and no one’s seen it since.

          BBC News, Last Updated: Tuesday, 29 April, 2003, 07:57 GMT 08:57 UK :

          “Archaeologists in Iraq believe they may have found the lost tomb of the King Gilgamesh – the subject of the oldest “book” in history.

          “Gilgamesh was believed to be two-thirds god, one-third human

          “The Epic Of Gilgamesh – written by a Middle Eastern scholar 2,500 years before the birth of Christ – commemorated the life of the ruler of the city of Uruk, from which Iraq gets its name.

          “Now, a German-led expedition has discovered what is thought to be the entire city of Uruk – including, where the Euphrates once flowed, the last resting place of its famous King.”

        • The really slim shady

          The epic of Gilgamesh is interesting.
          Supposesly he talked with Noah, who was apparently still alive.

      • You are kidding right?
        Either that or you don’t know crap about Pagans…
        We even believe in your ‘bad guy’… not even a little.
        First of all, Lucifer is from YOUR world, not ours.
        And he is nothing more than the Light Bearer… as in the one who sheds light on a subject. Just as Satan is a job and not a being at all.
        Your church has been lying to you for 1600 years, beginning with the idea that it started 2015 years ago and then of course the idea that the god of Abraham has anything to do with the man-god Jesus…

        • ChiRho

          I know enough to know that pagans will believe anything so long as it isn’t the traditional Biblical viewpoint. They think they’re all so wise, yet it is they who are being fooled. The evil one and his followers can take many forms. I have known pagans and have studied other religions. I just don’t buy what they’re selling. It’s all too predictable. “We have the secret knowledge.” “We have been around so much longer.” It’s empty lies Seeker. You should consider seeking the actual Truth. There are only two sources of power, good and evil. Anyone that tells you otherwise is probably affiliated with the side that will lose in the end.

      • sukTHEfac

        So many people taking literally and seriously fictional stories.

      • Robert Wayne Vernon Jr.

        I believe the Yazidis are Zoroastrian, that the magi are said to be also. Aryan (Iran) or Persia is where Zoroastrianism began. . These teach dualism. So two deities one good and the other evil, but not like the Biblical concept of good and evil.

        • ChiRho

          The Yzidis worship a Peacock god who is also a god of fire. This god was said to rebel against the “creator,” by their own accounts. Zoroastrianism is different. They believe their good actions in life must outweigh their bad if they are to be rewarded in the afterlife. On the surface it sounds mildly similar to Biblical thought, but is very different in the details. To me, Zoroaster was probably influenced by the Hebrews and/or similar Mid-Eastern creation good vs bad, with possibly even some farther Eastern religious ideas. Either way, like most false prophets he took some stuff that sounded good/peaceful etc and made it into what he wanted. The Yzidi religion seems much more different. Theirs reminds me more of some of the more sinister withcraft and pagan religions where their “good central character” sounds way too much like the protagonist of the Bible, and their viewpoint sounds like the complete reverse of the Biblical view, which is fairly alarming to a Christian.

          • Trevor

            Aha! Thererin lies the rub.

            You are a pagan priest, which makes a whole lot sense, and how many people have you seduced to follow you? Be forewarned, Jesus said that anybody who does not enter by the Door, which is by and through Jesus Christ alone, IS A THIEF. That would make you a thief, like your father, the devil, who is a liar, a thief, and a murderer.

            Be gone.

          • sukTHEfac

            Wow, you’re no less of bigot than any of the priests you criticize.

            “If you don’t take literally the stories in this ancient book written by strangers we will never understand or know, then you’re AN EVIL THIEF LIAR AND YOURE GOING TO HELL”

            Only an evil person would say that to a fellow human being. THIS is exactly why people like you are increasingly declining. Evolve with us, my man!

          • Trevor

            Evolve?! Into what? A cesspool of man that is slowly destroying itself? To what end? Sensual pleasure, for it is said, “Eat and drink, be merry, for tomorrow we die.”

            No, sir. I choose to follow Christ who is of the same substance of God, who being divine allowed Himself to be stripped of those power, humbled Himself by being born of a woman, received the Holy Spirit at baptism so He could demonstrate to us how we as believers in Christ could walk with power, and was willing to die for mankind. As John the Baptist cried out, “Behold, the Lamb of God,” Jesus is my Lamb, and He gave His life for me, a wretched sinner!

            It is Jesus who I long to see. It is Jesus who I eagerly await for His return and fulfill His promise that He will return.

            And you know what? God so loved YOU that He was willing to die for you, in your place, so you could have a chance of being reconciled with Him through Christ’s death at the Cross.

          • sukTHEfac

            SO because I’m not an avid follower, that automatically means that I support gluttony and waste? Once again, your bigotry is showing in the form of concrete assumptions about a man you don’t even know. Keep dividing yourself from the rest and see what happens.

          • Trevor

            I am not alone in following a “man I do not know.” So I’m in good company.

          • sukTHEfac

            Thanks for glazing over my main points. The fact that you didn’t address my first sentence tells me you see some truth in it but are too ashamed to admit it. Because if you disagreed, you would have crapped all over it like you have every other statement.

            You’re a person who latches onto hate and disagreement…not very holy and Im pretty sure God and Jesus wouldnt approve so good luck.

          • Trevor

            You have not presented any truth at all.

            You basically accused God of being a fraud. How do you explain this verse from Isaiah, 5“I am the LORD, and there is no other;
            Besides Me there is no God.
            I will gird you, though you have not known Me;” or “To whom would you liken Me
            And make Me equal and compare Me,
            That we would be alike?”

            Jesus Himself said, “Truly, truly, I say to you, I am the door of the sheep. 8“All who came before Me are thieves and robbers, but the sheep did not hear them. 9“I am the door; if anyone enters through Me, he will be saved, and will go in and out and find pasture. 10“The thief comes only to steal and kill and destroy; I came that they may have life, and have it abundantly.”

            So your problems lies not with me but with God. The way to heaven is through Christ alone.

    • sukTHEfac

      I’m sorry – are you criticizing this practice? Do you also condemn rebelling against a radical king to form the USA? I’m confused.

      • Trevor

        Sigh.

        According to Greek myth, Zeus was an offspring of the race of giants called the Titans, and with the help of his brothers and sisters, Zeus rose up against the Titans and defeated them.

        In the article the Shoebat demonstrated how ancient mythology had a chief god who rebelled against the beginning god. In many parrallel, it is the same as Lucifier who rebelled against God and was cast out of His presence.

        This has nothing to do with the American Revolutionary War. That is completely out of the outfield.

        • sukTHEfac

          Why infer that God is lying and not those writing the books?

          How do you know that God didnt once rebellion against a former power before him and rewrite the history books? If history repeats itself then that is quite the possibility.

          How are we so sure the Titans were all righteous? What if there was a good reason for rebellion? My comparison is not at all out of left field. Myths like that derive from lessons from real life events.

          • Trevor

            Then you are making God a liar.

            I will have no part in this conversation any further.

          • sukTHEfac

            Then you’re a bigot.

            I like Judiasm because that religion teaches people to ask questions and wonder. Then when the edited (“new”) testament came along, everyone’s shunned for being a human and asking rational questions.

            Those who stomp down on that are, indeed, bigots. I thought God hated bigotry?

    Luv him or hate him, he will bring back jobs from overseas and make our military the greatest in the world again…
    He is smart enough to put mean horrible killers in charge of making deals, and the Bible clearly states that kick hiney forces will come against the anti-christ…
    Vote Trump so we can be on the side of God once again…

    He actually said that as much as he loves his own book “The Art of the Deal”, there is one that is BY FAR so much greater than his that he loves even more…

          SOrry bro, but how does anything of what you say have to do with my initial comment? Funny how instead of referring to Trump, you try to discredit me by assuming that I support Obama’s politcking, which I ABSOLUTELY DO NOT.

          Why do people like you assume that “If he doesn’t like A, then he must, by default, LOVE B”

          What a foolish assumption to make. Because everything’s black and white like that right? The new testament might have taught you that fraudulent lesson.

            LOL you make a huge assumption about me wanting indentured servitude, then get all huffy when I point out the sla very Obama re-instated in the U.S.A…. Then get all mad and try to say I am assuming that you like Obama when what I said was I bet you were not against ObamaCare…
            All I did was bet that you are all for it…
            I still bet you are… And of course I may be wrong…
            But personally, I think you should go back to your video games…

    Great article guys, very interesting find.

  • ChiRho

    Thanks for the archaeology update Shoebat Duo. It’s so interesting how Western Asia through the Mediterranean has done so much trading of culture over the mellenia. You can trace architecture, religion, goods, food, clothing styles, military advancements all over and back and forth throughout the area.

  • Rexlion

    I have a question. Revelation 18 describes this Babylon in detail. It is a city that kings have ‘committed fornication with’. The merchants of the earth became rich by trading in her delicacies. Verses 11 through 16 go on at length about the variety of goods traded there. Verse 18 relates how the ship captains say the city was without equal (probably as a trading port) and they mourn. Is this an accurate description of Mecca?

    I don’t know much about Mecca, and you may know the place well. Can you fill in details of how Mecca fits in with this detailed description?

    I know that some people lately are pointing at New York City as a candidate for Mystery Babylon, but I just don’t know for sure what to think.

    • Julie LaBrecque

      Saudi grows rich from selling her wine (oil) to the kings of the earth. If the kings of the earth want her wine so their economies can flourish, they must provide her defense, do her dirty work, and keep quiet about all her wretched acts. The sale of her wine provides her with stupendous wealth with which she has the means to live like a Queen, to purchase/import all the goods listed in 11-16.

      • Smilin’ Jack

        That looks like a good interpretation to me. Right now, (actually since April 2014), Saudi Arabia as head of OPEC has caused the price of crude oil to drop, probably to drive American oil producers out of business. It costs roughly $40 per barrel to extract our oil, and West Texas Intermediate was trading at $40.30 on yesterday’s NYNEX. But other OPEC nations like Mexico, Venezuela and Nigeria don’t have the cash reserves that Saudi Arabia does and they are pushing to get the price back up. In any case, if domestic oil producers go belly-up, the law of supply and demand would push oil prices back up anyway and we would be continuing to support terrorists.

        • Julie LaBrecque

          $40 @ barrel for very long will be the death knell of drilling horizontal wells – it is already somewhat stifled here (OK) because of $70 @ barrel, best friend’s husband is horizontal-drilling engineer, company has already laid-off supers and hands. Saudi well knows what it is doing – they have the Ace in the hole – at least for a while.

          • Rexlion

            You live in OK too? Small world, go figure!

          • Julie LaBrecque

            Yep.

    • Alas Alas that great city, its destroyed and the ship master weep because THAT CITY does not buy their merchandise. Its an import city by the Red Sea (Read Jeremiah 49-50) and Mecca can be viewed from the Red Sea when the smoke of her burning happens. Just google Arabia and Shoebat, there are tons of articles that explain your question. God Bless.

      • Trevor

        There is a parrallel passage from Ezekiel which is a lamentation against the king of Tyre.

        Interestingly enough, Tyre was located beside Lebanon in ancient time and it was overthrown by Alexander the Great. Yet, the lamentation is practically a mirror of the lamentation from Revelation.

      • Rexlion

        Ok, I’ve been reading up and I can see that Saudi Arabia imports all the things (including slaves and foreign laborers) that Rev. 18 mentions.

        http://biblehub.com/commentaries/jeremiah/51-7.htm
        Good info from you and Joel Richardson!

        One verse still bothers me, though:
        Jer 51:7 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.
        “A golden cup in the LORD’s hand” seems to imply that God was using them for His purposes, directing and empowering them. But that doesn’t sound like Mecca. If it only said “a golden cup” I would think it to mean simply their riches. But when the cup is “in the LORD’s hand” it seems to imply direction and control. Thoughts? Explanations?

        This does appear to refer to latter-day mystery Babylon, because its destruction is sudden (v.8) and in the “day of trouble” (v. 2).

    • Trevor

      You would be surprised to find a parrallel passage from the O.T. that practically mirrors the same lamentation Mystery Babylon.

      Read Ezekiel 27 – https://www.biblegateway.com/passage/?search=Ezekiel%2027&version=NASB – and be very astonished. Then go on and read the first half of Ezekiel 28. You will see that Saudi Arabia fits this to a T.

      The names of tribes mentioned in Ezekiel 27 is also the same mentioned in Gog (aka the Antichrist) alliance who will invade Israel in the end.

      By the way, Saudi Arabia is being abandoned by many of her lovers, including America (thank God), and she is forming an alliance with Israel.

      Another point to consider – just as Christianity was born in Israel, Islam was born in Saudi Arabia. That is why many of us who read this site hold to Saudi Arabia as the WOB.

    • Guns N Rosaries

      Mecca can never be called great…only Jerusalem and Rome fit that description. The word “great” cannot be used to describe Mecca, as it is the center of an unholy, perverted & heretical and/or pagan sect.

      Since Jerusalem lost its title of “great” when the Temple & the city were destroyed, only Rome, now, can perfectly fit the description of Babylon in the Apocalypse.

      • Trevor

        Clearly, you do not understand why Mecca is seen as great. Perhaps you should research why Mecca is a holy site to Islam (yes, to us Christians, it is unholy).

        That is where Muhammad was born. It was where Muhammad destroyed 360 idols that once were housed there and put in place the black stone that continues to be venerated by Muslims worldwide.

  • Albert Griggs

    Islam is the closest religion to Judaism. If you take Mohammad out of Islam, what is left is Judaism, almost all their religious laws are the same. Sharia law copies Halacha law. Jews and Moslems got along beautifully until Israel replaced the original inhabitants of Palestine who were treated exactly the same way the American Indians were treated and much worse.
    Islam, like Christianity, accepts the Jewish Bible and is based largely upon Jewish ideas and traditions. The philosophical underpinnings of Islam, however, are more closely aligned with those of Judaism. Whereas Christianity incorporates the idea of the “trinity,” Islam believes in one all-powerful, infinite God.
    Mohammed, the founder of Islam, based many of his beliefs on the practices of local Jewish population in his native Mecca. For example, the Moslem practices of not eating pig, circumcision, daily prayer and fasting during the first month of the year were all culled directly from Judaism.

        which came from the battle.

        31:15 And Moses said unto them, Have ye saved all the women alive?

        31:16 Behold, these caused
        the children of Israel, through the counsel of Balaam, to commit
        trespass against the LORD in the matter of Peor, and there was a plague
        among the congregation of the LORD.

      That’s ok. God doesn’t want you to be religious anyhow. He just wants you to trust Jesus’ redemptive sacrifice for the remission of your wrongful deeds (nobody’s perfect, right? But God is perfect). Eternal life is a gift, but you have to receive and accept it by faith in the death and resurrection of Jesus Christ.

      God loves you!

    • Phil aka Felipe

      Tahiti 5000, you said, “All religions are ridiculous nonsense.” I tend to agree with you.

      Here’s why:

      At first, I thought of religion as a crutch for old people like my grandfather, who was a Christian. I made fun of people like
      that when I was young.

      Later, I was almost killed and was confronted by a Doctor in a hospital with a proposition that I had to seriously consider. He
      didn’t put it in these terms, but it all boils down to this; I have a choice to make of what I believe and there are only two options, true or false, and the consequences of choosing what I believe is that the destiny, hell or heaven, for my eternal future is at stake. (I did not know it at the time, but my happiness and joy while here on this earth was at stake as well.)

      After narrowly escaping death, I thought “If what this Doctor is saying is true, I better consider it and make my choice, now.
      I may not get another chance.”

      So, I agreed with the Doctor’s proposition and made my choice. It is not necessary to go into all the details of what happened with me and exactly what we said to each other and what happened after that. He did, however, tell me I should get a Bible and read it. So, I did what he suggested.

      I am a bottom line guy. So, here is the summary of it all:

      The whole crux of the matter is, tahiti 5000 – What are you going to believe about Jesus of Nazareth?

      One time Jesus asked his close followers, “Whom do men say that I am?” They responded with some say this and some
      say that.

      But Jesus presses the issue farther and asked, “But whom do YOU say that I am?”

      tahiti 5000, this is the question, right now, that Jesus is asking you too!

      Jesus made an audacious claim: He said. “I am the way, the truth, and the life; no man comes to the Father, but by me.”

      He is claiming Deity. He says he is THE (singularly, solely, only) WAY, THE TRUTH, and THE LIFE.

      He is claiming to be the ultimate, the only, the authentic TRUTH. If that is so, then he is the truth about the way and the truth about the life and therefore NO ONE comes to God, except by him.

      Alternatively, if that is not so, then he is a either a liar, deceiver, deceived or a fraud.

      But, if he IS THE TRUTH, THEN EVERY THING AND EVERYONE ELSE CLAIMING DEITY IS FALSE.

      I used the word authentic. Because bank tellers handle
      so many dollar bills, they can usually tell the difference between the authentic and the counterfeit. But the counterfeiters are becoming more sophisticated and more subtle and a lot of
      worthless stuff gets taken for the good stuff. It takes never ending efforts to detect the counterfeit and worthless.

      Counterfeit and worthless is a good description of religion. That is why I agree with you. “All religions are ridiculous nonsense.” Even worse, they are evil.

      The more time one spends examining and looking upon Jesus
      of Nazareth, the easier it is know and to spot the worthless counterfeits.

      But I say that only because I examined the claims of Jesus of Nazareth and BELIEVE he is whom he says he is.

      And, as one of his disciples in the Bible proclaimed, I also say, “Be it known unto you all, and to all the people of Israel, that by the name of Jesus Christ of Nazareth, whom ye crucified, whom God raised from the dead, even by him doth this man stand here before you whole. This is the stone which was set at nought of you builders, which is become the head of the corner. NEITHER IS THERE SALVATION IN ANY OTHER: FOR THERE IS NONE OTHER NAME UNDER HEAVEN GIVEN AMONG MEN, WHEREBY WE MUST BE SAVED.”

      tahiti 5000, (and everyone else)
      Whom do you say that Jesus of Nazareth is?

    • I don’t insult the mother of Christ. I insult that WORSHIP OF and PRAYER TO Mary. Mary was a woman of great virtue. But she was a mere, sin-filled woman like the rest of us. She is not a queen or mother goddess and has no special privileges in Heaven. We have no High Priest, no intermediary in Heaven, but Jesus. Search the Scriptures for yourself. The only woman setting herself up as a Queen in the heavenlies is the Whore of Babylon who is, in fact, the Queen of Heaven, wife of the ruler of demons, Baal.

      • Julie LaBrecque

    Enlil feared Enkiites would run Earth’s space facilities, dictate gold flow from Earth to Nibiru, and with this leverage, force Marduk’s rule on Nibiru as well as Earth. Enlil wouldn’t be able to talk with Nibiru or flee Earth when they quit mining if Marduk won the space sites. To counter this, Enlil sent Ninurta to covertly construct a communications center for a rocket-landing field in South America, where Enlilites could gather placer gold and pure tin. The new center, next to Lake Titicaca, could control the long level plain of Nazca above the Andes. “From there,” Ninurta reported, “gold shipments to Nibiru can continue, from there in need we too can ascend” [12th Planet: 248, 249].

    Martin Luther assure that Mary remained a virgin, for he said:

    “Christ, ..was the only Son of Mary, and the Virgin
    Mary bore no children besides Him… “brothers” really means “cousins”
    here, for Holy Writ and the Jews always call cousins brothers. (Sermons
    on John, chapters 1-4.1537-39).”

    “God did not derive his divinity from Mary; but it
    does not follow that it is therefore wrong to say that God was born of
    Mary, that God is Mary’s Son, and that Mary is God’s mother…She is the
    true mother of God and bearer of God…Mary suckled God, rocked God to
    sleep, prepared broth and soup for God, etc. For God and man are one
    person, one Christ, one Son, one Jesus. not two Christs. . .just as your
    son is not two sons…even though he has two natures, body and soul,
    the body from you, the soul from God alone. (On the Councils and the
    Church, 1539).”

    So, Martin Luther the champion of Protestant Reformation was in perfect agreement with Catholics’ belief that Mary remained a virgin, even after the birth of Christ. This is also supported by John Calvin as well.

    John Calvin said:

    “”Nay, rather, blessed are they that hear the word of God. We see that Christ treats almost as a matter of indifference that point on which the woman had set a high value. And undoubtedly what she supposed to be Mary’s highest honor was far inferior to the other favors which she had received; for
    it was of vastly greater importance to be regenerated by the Spirit of
    God than to conceive Christ, according to the flesh, in her womb; to
    have Christ living spiritually within her than to suckle him with her
    breasts. In a word, the highest happiness and glory of the holy
    Virgin consisted in her being a member of his Son, so that the heavenly
    Father reckoned her in the number of new creatures.

    In my opinion, however, it was for another
    reason, and with a view to another object, that Christ now corrected
    the saying of the woman. It was because men are commonly chargeable with
    neglecting even those gifts of God, on which they gaze with
    astonishment, and bestow the highest praise. This woman, in applauding
    Christ, had left out what was of the very highest consequence, that in
    him salvation is exhibited to all; and, therefore, it was a feeble
    commendation, that made no mention of his grace and power, which is
    extended to all. Christ justly claims for himself another kind of
    praise, not that his mother alone is reckoned blessed, but that he brings to us all perfect and eternal happiness.
    We never form a just estimate of the excellence of Christ, till we
    consider for what purpose he was given to us by the Father, and perceive
    the benefits which he has brought to us, so that we who are wretched in
    ourselves may become happy in him. But why does he say nothing about
    himself, and mention only the word of God? It is because in this way he
    opens to us all his treasures; for without the word he has no
    intercourse with us, nor we with him. Communicating himself to us by the
    word, he rightly and properly calls us to hear and keep it, that by
    faith he may become ours.”

    Even an author who once cited Alexander Hisslop had to double check his source, and discovered that he fabricated many myth of Mary and the Roman Catholic Church’s doctrine on Mary’s virginity.

    Here is one source:

    “he book
    was certainly fascinating but I recall being disturbed that
    almost none of Hislop’s claims could really be substantiated by
    any reputable source, although it was certainly ‘meat and drink’
    to the gullible. I did not entirely reject Hislop’s thesis but
    put in on the back burner for a few years with the feeling that
    Hislop’s points were not backed up with conclusive evidence
    (something which Hislop himself was apparently blind to).
    Basically, I came to the conclusion that outrageous
    accusation is not the same thing as carefully compiled and
    decisive evidence.”

      Yeshua inherited his Jewishness from Mariam. So basically he was born into the line and seed of David.

      So if Mary was married to Joseph and remained a virgin then she lived in sin for it is sin to withhold intercourse from your spouse except for a short time by mutual agreement.

    How ironic it is that this article mentions the plight of the Christians in the Mideast! Do you people NOT know that centuries before the invention of Islam the Arabic speaking Christians were already referring to the One True God as Allah? Allah is NOT the name of some pagan or satanic figure. IT IS THE ARABIC WORD FOR GOD!! Would you people please stop the is phony archeology? You are discrediting true scholarship and insulting out Christian brother in the Mideast. Our Arabic speaking Christians brothers and sisters call God Allah, just as Spanish speakers see Dios and Frenchmen say Dieu and Koreans say Hananim.

    • Perry
      • Thomas C. Coleman, Jr.

        Yes, that it exactly correct. Muslims claim that Jews and Christians have a distorted idea of Who the One True God is. For instance, they regard the Christian belief that Jesus is the Son of God as blasphemy, and they regard belief in the Trinity is polytheism. So some Muslim governments ban Christians from using the word Allah, even though Christians were using that word beforer the invention of Islam. Allah is the Arabic word for God; it is not the name of some pagan deity.

  • From a study of my Biblestudy teacher:

    It has often tried to whom the number 666 could apply, such as Nero or the pope or Hitler. The numerical values ​​of those names did not produce on 666. The value of Maitreya is 666. I’ve checked with people who understand the Hebrew spelling and grammar. They did not know what it was about, but they gave a spelling exactly right. So I do not homemade throbbing. The Hebrew spelling of Maitreya is mem (40) Jod (10) taw (400) reish (200) Jod (10) alef (1) hey (5). In Hebrew, the name with an h written at the end. The same applies for example to the name of Leah. Lamed (30) alef (1) hey (5). In Dutch we write those names without h at the end. In Hebrew, the alef without h at the end of the word not be spoken. This is complicated, but that is something for Hebrew lessons. For those who are only familiar with the biblical Hebrew, the taw is located in the word too strange, but in the modern Hebrew is no problem. Maitreya is by no modern word. Maitreya is the name given many centuries ago was the last or fifth Buddha who would appear in Buddhism. The first Buddha Gautama. The much better Buddha, which was announced by the first, would come under the name Maitreya. In other words, Maitreya is the Buddhist equivalent of what we call Christ. Maitreya is an old word with a fixed spelling.

    The antichrist does not only for the Maitreya of the Buddhists, as well as the Christ of the Christians, the Krishna of the Hindus, the Imam Mahdi of the Muslims, and the great world teacher in the New Age movement. The world teacher is directly derived from Buddhism. The Bible teaches on this figure, that he will lead humanity into submission to a certain king. This figure is the one who will establish a world empire of which he is the head in practice without his hands dirty with politics. He is above politics. So it’s always been. Thus it will also be in the future. As you read these chapters with attention, you will see that this world teacher is more important than the king, announced explicitly Daniel. The second beast, the World Teacher, the false prophet is also much more dangerous than the first beast, the king. That is because his influence is not based on economic systems but on miracles. He appeals to the religiosity of man.

  • Seven years of tribulations. Nope!

    7 en 33

    In Daniël 9 : 25 wordt vermeld wanneer de zeventig weken zouden beginnen. Vanaf het moment, dat het woord uitging om “te doen terugkeren en Jeruzalem te bouwen”, zouden 7 en 62 weken verlopen. Ze worden samen genoemd. Het gaat om totaal 69 aaneengesloten weken.

    Op het moment dat dat woord is uitgegaan mochten een aantal Joden naar het land terugkeren. Toen begon een periode van zeventig weken (490 jaar). Ná die zeventig weken zou alle ongerechtigheid van Israël verzoend zijn en zou er een eeuwige gerechtigheid zijn aangebracht.

    Gedurende de 69 weken zou men wederkeren en de stad Jeruzalem (her)bouwen. Na die 69 weken zou de Messias uitgeroeid worden. Het is zeer opmerkelijk dat er niet staat “in de zeventigste week”.

    Tot het einde toe zou er krijg (= oorlog) zijn. Dit wordt nog steeds ná de 69 weken genoemd. De zeventigste week is in deze profetie van Daniël 9 nog steeds niet genoemd. Die laatste week wordt pas in vers 27 genoemd. Dit betekent dat er een bepaalde tijd verloopt tussen het einde van de 69 weken en het begin van de zeventigste week.

    Tot op “Messias de Vorst” vinden we een aaneengesloten periode van 69 weken (= 483 jaar). Deze 69 weken waren – volgens Sir Robert Anderson in “The coming Prince” – exact (tot op de dag nauwkeurig!) voorbij op de dag dat de Heer Jeruzalem naderde. Dit staat bekend als de zogenaamde intocht in Jeruzalem.

    Lukas 19 : 37-44

    En als Hij nu genaakte aan den afgang des Olijfbergs, begon al de menigte der discipelen zich te verblijden, en God te loven met grote stemme, vanwege al de krachtige daden, die zij gezien hadden;

    Zeggende: Gezegend is de Koning, Die daar komt in den Naam des Heeren! Vrede zij in den hemel, en heerlijkheid in de hoogste plaatsen!

    En sommigen der Farizeën uit de schare zeiden tot Hem: Meester, bestraf Uw discipelen.

    En Hij, antwoordende, zeide tot hen: Ik zeg ulieden, dat, zo deze zwijgen, de stenen haast roepen zullen.

    En als Hij nabij kwam, en de stad zag, weende Hij over haar,

    Zeggende: Och, of gij ook bekendet, ook nog in dezen uw dag, hetgeen tot uw vrede dient! Maar nu is het verborgen voor uw ogen.

    Want er zullen dagen over u komen, dat uw vijanden een begraving rondom u zullen opwerpen, en zullen u omsingelen, en u van alle zijden benauwen;

    De Heer naderde de stad Jeruzalem en weende over haar, omdat de stad niet wist dat het de tiende dag van de eerste maand (= 10 nisan) was en dus de dag waarop het paaslam in huis genomen moest worden. Volgens Sir Robert Anderson was dit tevens de laatste dag van de 69-ste week. Vandaar de woorden van de Heer “Och, of gij ook bekendet, ook nog in dezen uw dag, hetgeen tot uw vrede dient.” De tijdgenoten van de Heer waren zich echter niet bewust dat het de laatste dag van de 69-ste week was. Vermoedelijk kende of begreep (en geloofde!) niemand van Zijn tijdgenoten de profetie van Daniël 9. Daarom weende de Heer over de stad, want Hij wist welk oordeel over haar zou komen. Vergelijk in dit verband:

    Matthéüs 23 : 37

    Jeruzalem, Jeruzalem! gij, die de profeten doodt, en stenigt, die tot u gezonden zijn! hoe menigmaal heb Ik uw kinderen willen bijeenvergaderen, gelijkerwijs een hen haar kiekens bijeenvergadert onder de vleugels; en gijlieden hebt niet gewild.

    De Heer had het verlangen Zich over Jeruzalem te ontfermen, maar de inwoners van Jeruzalem wilden niet. Daarom zou hun huis woest gelaten worden (Matthéüs 23 : 38).

    Na de 69 weken zou de Messias uitgeroeid worden en zouden de stad en het heiligdom verdorven worden. De zogenaamde “intocht in Jeruzalem” vond vijf dagen vóór de kruisiging van de Messias plaats. De Messias werd dus vijf dagen ná het beëindigen van de 69-ste week uitgeroeid. In het jaar ‘70 van onze jaartelling werd de stad Jeruzalem verwoest.

    De zeventig weken worden verdeeld in 69 weken (7 + 62) en één week. Daniël 9 geeft een scheiding tussen

    de 69 weken en de zeventigste week aan. Nadat de Messias uitgeroeid zou zijn en de stad en het heiligdom vernietigd zouden zijn, zou er een bepaalde tijd verlopen vóórdat de laatste week (de laatste zeven jaar) zou beginnen. Deze onderbreking wordt in Daniël 9 : 26 aangegeven.

    Uit Daniël 9 : 27 blijkt dat de zeventigste week in twee gelijke delen wordt verdeeld.

    Dit betekent dat deze week uit twee delen van 3 1/2 jaar bestaat. Het gaat om twee perioden van 1260 dagen. Deze tijdsaanduiding staat in: Openbaring 12 : 6

    En de vrouw vluchtte in de woestijn, alwaar zij een plaats had, haar van God bereid, opdat zij haar aldaar zouden voeden duizend tweehonderd zestig dagen.

    De laatste (de zeventigste) week duurt uiteraard ook zeven jaar. Er rest een periode van zeven jaar om de ongerechtigheid te verzoenen, een eeuwige gerechtigheid aan te brengen en om de heiligheid der heiligheden te zalven.

    Uit Daniël 9 blijkt dat er een bepaalde tijd verloopt tussen het einde van de 69 weken en het begin van de zeventigste week. Er is een “onderbreking” gedurende de zeventig weken. Hoewel deze onderbreking vaak ook volledig wordt overgeslagen, is hij op veel plaatsen in de Bijbel terug te vinden. Een voorbeeld is de profetie die door de Heer Zelf werd aangehaald.

    Lukas 4 : 16-20

    En Hij kwam te Nazareth, daar Hij opgevoed was, en ging, naar Zijn gewoonte, op den dag des sabbats in de synagoge; en stond op om te lezen.

    En Hem werd gegeven het boek van den profeet Jesaja; en als Hij het boek opengedaan had, vond Hij de plaats, daar geschreven was:

    De Geest des Heeren is op Mij, daarom heeft Hij Mij gezalfd; Hij heeft Mij gezonden, om den armen het Evangelie te verkondigen, om te genezen, die gebroken zijn van hart;

    Om den gevangenen te prediken loslating, en den blinden het gezicht, om de verslagenen heen te zenden in vrijheid; om te prediken het aangename jaar des Heeren

    En als Hij het boek toegedaan en den dienaar wedergegeven had, zat Hij neder; en de ogen van allen in de synagoge waren op Hem geslagen.

    De Heer citeert hier:

    Jesaja 61 : 1, 2

    De Geest des Heeren HEEREN is op Mij, omdat de Heere Mij gezalfd heeft, om een blijde boodschap te brengen den zachtmoedigen; Hij heeft Mij gezonden om te verbinden de gebrokenen van harte, om den gevangenen vrijheid uit te roepen, en den gebondenen opening der gevangenis;

    Om uit te roepen het jaar van het welbehagen des HEEREN, en den dag der wraak onzes Gods; om alle treurigen te troosten;

    De Here Jezus plaatste achter “het aangename jaar des Heeren” een punt. In Jesaja 61 : 2 staat er echter nog iets achteraan: “en den dag der wraak onzes Gods; om alle treurigen te troosten”. Dit deel van het vers liet de Here Jezus achterwege, omdat dát deel van de profetie bij Zijn eerste komst niet in vervulling ging. In Jesaja 61 staan beide delen in één vers genoemd. Het eerste deel van het vers is circa 2000 jaar geleden vervuld, terwijl het tweede deel van het vers nog steeds profetisch is. Er blijkt een lange periode tussen te zitten, maar die wordt hier gewoon overgeslagen.

    Tijdens deze onderbreking heeft de Heer Zich voor Israël verborgen.

  • The name “Allah” has Satanic origins? What ignorance is this?

    Uneducated and ignorant people are spreading this anti-Muslim propaganda. Yes, Muslims follow a man-made religion, that is a fact, but no more than Hindus, Buddhists and other religions. Yes, Muslims are deceived just as other religious people. But this particular lie is being circulating by uneducated and gullible people.
    These ignorant people are believing this lie because they want to and usually because they have unbiblical Zionist leanings.
    Please let common sense prevail and allow me to educate you if you are foolish enough to fall for this silly nonsense.

    God has many names in the Hebrew Bible, one of which is Elah (sometimes Elahah) which is to be found in the writings of Ezra and Daniel. The name Elah is the Chaldean form of El and of Eloah as it is written in Hebrew. These are names for God used in the Hebrew Bible, and simply refer to “God” in the singular form.
    In Arabic the ‘same’ name for God is written as “Allah”, because Allah is from the same root as “Elah”, and in fact their pronouncation is practically the same. Not only so but many Palestinian and Israeli Jews use the name “Allah” when referring to God because they know full well that “Elah” and “Allah” is basically the same. Actually they are exactly the same, it is just that they are written differently in Hebrew and in Arabic.

    Christians whose language is Arabic and whose Bibles are written in their mother tongue understand this simple truth, knowing that when they used the Arabic name “Allah” that it simply means the God of Abraham, Issac and Jacob, and the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ.

    Arabic existed long before English and the Arabic Bible before the English Bible. When a Muslim uses the name “Allah” he is simply using the Arabic name translated Elah in the Hebrew Bible. And whilst the Muslim may not know the God of the Bible, neither do the Jews who rejected the God of the Bible, or Hindus, Buddhists, or other religious people. When these religious people speak of God, by whatever name, they are ignorant of the God they speak of; much in the same way as those who are ignorant of the true meaning of the name “Allah”.

    So away with this uneducated and foolish nonsense all you who believe that “Allah” has Satanic roots, for in your ignorance you are suggesting that the name of God Himself (Elah) is Satanic.

  • qtcshv

  • Julie LaBrecque

    You can allege all the false religions all you want, they likewise worshipped ‘god’ – so is our God false because pagans worshipped a ‘god’? Your logic is not sustainable. The Mothers of the Sons of David that became Kings were QUEEN MOTHERS OF THE KINGDOM – they were crowned and SAT ON THRONES.

    • There is no Queen Mother in Heaven. Can’t find that ANYWHERE in Scripture. It’s heresy. Mary will more than likely have a crown (as many of the saints/Christians will), but she has no throne or special privileges in Heaven that we know of. She bows at the feet of Christ and sings “holy, holy, holy” to God like the rest of the Christians.

      • Julie LaBrecque

        Really? You can’t read? ‘She has no throne or special privileges…’. This is proof that you have never been taught, nor have you studied, the Davidic Kingdom, the fallen hut of David (Amos 9:11) that Jesus restored by ‘building’ The Church. Follow closely – Bathsheba was the First Queen Mother, King David’s wife and mother of King Solomon. “Bathsheba therefore went unto King Solomon, to speak unto him for Adonijah. And the King rose up to meet her, and bowed himself unto her, and sat down on his throne, and caused a seat to be set for the King’s mother; and she sat on his RIGHT HAND.” 1 Kings 2:19. “Say unto the King and to the QUEEN MOTHER; come down from your THRONE; From your heads your splendid crowns will fall.” Jeremiah 13:18. “He shall be great, and shall be called the Son of the Most High; and the Lord God shall give unto him the THRONE of DAVID his father.” Luke 1:32. Mary IS the Queen Mother, Jesus is the King. “Kings’ daughters were among thy honorable women: upon thy RIGHT HAND did stand the QUEEN in gold of Ophir…I will make THY NAME to be remembered in ALL generations: therefore shall the people PRAISE YOU for ever and ever.” Psalm 45:9-17.
        “On the third day there was a wedding in Cana in Galilee, and the MOTHER of Jesus was there…when the wine ran short, the MOTHER of Jesus said to Him “They have no wine.” Jesus said the her, “WOMAN, what is this to me and to thee?..His MOTHER said to the servers, “Do whatsoever He tells you.” John 2:1-5. Why did Mary intercede for the wedding party? Why did Jesus fulfill her request? Why did the servers obey her? Why does Jesus again call his mother “WOMAN”, while He hung dying on the Cross? (John 19:26). Why does John use “WOMAN” in Rev 12? Mary is the WOMAN of Gen 3:15 , and Jesus is HER SEED.

        • I’ve read the Bible cover to cover multiple times. You’re comparing an earthly kingdom to a heavenly one. In regards to Queen mothers, there isn’t one in heaven. Mary is seated in heavenly places IN Christ, like the rest of the Christians. Your doctrine lacks sound contextual support.

    You must not be, right? You must not know much about the Davidic Kingdom or the OT either- which is typical for most protestants.

    • Jeff Benton

      I can vouch for that… The Protestant Churches I have been too do only superficially touch on the OT and mostly only as it relates to some NT idea that the sermon is about… Not always, but mostly…
      Even Sunday School in the Protestant Churches I have attended only hit on surface teachings of the OT….
      And in 50 years of going to Protestant Churches I have never learned doodley squat about any Davidic Kingdom Court Practices or how that relates to OT or NT passages…

      How ever I have heard sermons from years gone by from Protestant Pastors that do indeed go deeply into OT teachings…
      Dr Martin Lloyd Jones is but one example, and although I will no doubt be harangued for even mentioning his name, if all the pundits shouting this or that about him would but shut up and listen to his sermons, they may actually begin to look past any perceived errors and hear something that m,akes a little sense…
      There are many others from times past too, but the point is these days in-depth study or Sermons on the OT or Davidic Kingdom Practices is the rarity in Protestant Churches rather than the norm…

      Thats my 2 cents even though no-one asked for it… 🙂 🙂 🙂

      • Julie LaBrecque

        They aren’t going to teach about the Davidic Kingdom because it will refute their anti-clerical, anti-hierarchial stance – the King of the Davidic Kingdom gave to the Royal Steward the KEYS of the Kingdom – the Royal Steward, the Father (Pope) over the House, had ALL the authority of the King – with the power to bind and to loose (Isaiah 22:15-25, Matt 16:18-19)- AND, the Mother of the Davidic Kings were crowned and sat on a throne to the right of the King (1 Kings 2:19, Jeremiah 13:18, Psalm 45:9, Rev 12:1). Now you can get a peek as to why Protestant churches will NOT teach about the Davidic Kingdom – it proves the Catholic Church is right on many issues that the protestant churches absolutely reject. ‘The Church’ is the promised restoration of the Davidic Kingdom (2 Samuel 7:12-16, Amos 9:11, Acts 15:13-18)

        • Jeff Benton

          Might be a little rubbing of ego’s going on on both sides too, since the passage in Matthew 18 clearly gives all of the disciples the power to bind and to loose too… Not just Peter…
          Just a thought… I dont know much about whatever fight the prot’s and rc’s might have going on…

          Mat 18:18 Verily I say unto you, Whatsoever ye shall bind on earth shall be bound in heaven: and whatsoever ye shall loose on earth shall be loosed in heaven.
          Mat 18:1 At the same time came the disciples unto Jesus, saying, Who is the greatest in the kingdom of heaven?

          • Julie LaBrecque

            Peter received individually the power to bind and loose, later they other Apostles did as well. Look at how scripture relates the Council of Jerusalem – they all met and discussed, then rendered a binding declaration to all believers. If you will go back to Matt 23:2-13, you will see that the Scribes and Pharisees sat on Moses’ seat, the seat of authority to govern, proclaim dogma, etc, ‘therefore, do and observe all that they tell you.’ It is also speaks that they ‘bind’ heavy burdens, and key-shut (in the Greek, literally using a key to shut) the Kingdom to those who would enter.

            Hmmm seems like I remember doing some research on the moses’ seat passage from Jesus years ago… there may have been some controversy over it if I remember correctly… Give me a few and I will see if I can dig up my old notes…
            No telling where they are though LOL…
            May take a bit…

          • Julie LaBrecque

            Moses’ ‘seat’ (cathedra – which is the word that Cathedral is derived from – the Cathedral Church of each Diocese is the ‘seat’ of each Diocesan Bishop) is nowhere in scripture – but it is in Jewish Tradition. There is one verse in the OT (Exodus 18:13) that states the Moses took his seat, but nothing after that that even alludes to anyone else sitting on his seat. Jesus knew and honored Jewish Tradition.

          • Most of the problems come from ignorance. You have people like Jeff, who are smart, inquisitive, and unafraid to challenge his own orthodoxies. That’s noble. But then you have people who can’t be bothered to inquire on what them there Latin words mean. It sounds like they’re speaking Mexican. Or something.

            This is why I’m always going to be for bilingual education, ESPECIALLY when it comes to Church matters. In fact, the Pentateuch of languages should be taught (Greek, Latin, Hebrew, Syriac and Coptic/Arabic).

          • Julie LaBrecque

            That would serve the Christian communities with a great service! I so tire of protestants of thinking that they can read an English version of Scripture and think they can deduce the true meaning that is contained in the ancient languages.

          • Maria

            @Julie: We’re suppose to listen to what is read from Moses’ seat, but not do what they do because they do not practice what they preach; instead they tie up cumbersome loads (traditions and traditional interpretations) on the people. Matthew 23:1-4 and Matthew 15 should be read in tandem.

            • Matthew 23:1-4 (NIV)

            23 Then Jesus said to the crowds and to his disciples: 2 “The teachers of the law and the Pharisees sit in Moses’ seat. 3 So you must be careful to do everything they tell you. But do not do what they do, for they do not practice what they preach. 4 They tie up heavy, cumbersome loads and put them on other people’s shoulders, but they themselves are not willing to lift a finger to move them.

            • Matthew 15:1-9 (NIV)

            15 Then some Pharisees and teachers of the law came to Jesus from Jerusalem and asked, 2 “Why do your disciples break the tradition of the elders? They don’t wash their hands before they eat!”

            3 Jesus replied, “And why do you break the command of God for the sake of your tradition? 4 For God said, ‘Honor your father and mother’[a] and ‘Anyone who curses their father or mother is to be put to death.’[b] 5 But you say that if anyone declares that what might have been used to help their father or mother is ‘devoted to God,’ 6 they are not to ‘honor their father or mother’ with it. Thus you nullify the word of God for the sake of your tradition. 7 You hypocrites! Isaiah was right when he prophesied about you:

            8 “‘These people honor me with their lips,
            but their hearts are far from me.
            9 They worship me in vain;
            their teachings are merely human rules.’[c]”

            Footnotes:

            a. Matthew 15:4 Exodus 20:12; Deut. 5:16
            b. Matthew 15:4 Exodus 21:17; Lev. 20:9
            c. Matthew 15:9 Isaiah 29:13

            If a tradition starts nullifying the way a command reads, then Jesus told us not to listen to them or adhere to their tradition nor traditional interpretation of the command.

            What is read from Moses’ seat is not a mystery, but explicitly stated in the Exodus passage you cited:

            • Exodus 18:13-16 (NIV)

            13 The next day Moses took his seat to serve as judge for the people, and they stood around him from morning till evening. 14 When his father-in-law saw all that Moses was doing for the people, he said, “What is this you are doing for the people? Why do you alone sit as judge, while all these people stand around you from morning till evening?”

            15 Moses answered him, “Because the people come to me to seek God’s will. 16 Whenever they have a dispute, it is brought to me, and I decide between the parties and inform them of God’s decrees and instructions.”

            A dispute is settled based on God’s Laws—his decrees and instructions; they are read from Moses seat. Not just any ol’ tradition or interpretation of a command because Jesus did not approve of the traditional ways they interpretted things, which means that just because an early church father (or many) hold to an opinion, or a common interpretation, that doesn’t make the interpretation true, especially if it denies a simple reading of what the text says.

            • Matthew 1:25 (NIV)

            25 But he did not consummate their marriage until she gave birth to a son. And he gave him the name Jesus.

            • Matthew 12:46-50 (NIV)

            46 While Jesus was still talking to the crowd, his mother and brothers stood outside, wanting to speak to him. 47 Someone told him, “Your mother and brothers are standing outside, wanting to speak to you.”

            48 He replied to him, “Who is my mother, and who are my brothers?” 49 Pointing to his disciples, he said, “Here are my mother and my brothers. 50 For whoever does the will of my Father in heaven is my brother and sister and mother.

            An example of the leaven of the Pharisees—teachings that deviate from what the text itself simply says: the notion of “brother” actually meaning “cousins” and the notion that Mary’s marriage wasn’t consummated ever. She did have sex with her husband after Jesus was born. Ergo, she did not remain a virgin. The leaven of the Pharisees want to change what the word “until” means and what the word “brother” means.

            The New Testament does use the word “cousin” elsewhere and it is not the same word for “brother”.

            • Colossians 4:10 (NIV)

            10 My fellow prisoner Aristarchus sends you his greetings, as does Mark, the cousin of Barnabas.(You have received instructions about him; if he comes to you, welcome him.)

            The Greek word here, in Colossians 4:10, for cousin is “ἀνεψιὸς” (anepsios).
            http://biblehub.com/text/colossians/4-10.htm

            The Greek word for “brothers” used in Matthew 12:46 is “ἀδελφοὶ” (adelphoi).
            http://biblehub.com/text/matthew/12-46.htm

            They’re not the same thing. So the mention of Jesus’ biological mother and brothers in contrast to whoever does the will of his Father in heaven being his spiritual brothers, sisters and mothers, indicates that it’s a literal reference to brothers. And it’s not cousins. Cousins (anepsios) appears no where in relation to these verses only adelphoi in all five verses:

            http://biblehub.com/text/matthew/12-46.htm
            http://biblehub.com/text/matthew/12-47.htm
            http://biblehub.com/text/matthew/12-48.htm
            http://biblehub.com/text/matthew/12-49.htm
            http://biblehub.com/text/matthew/12-50.htm

            You have to discard the simple reading of what it actually says to arrive at the conclusion that it’s speaking about cousins instead of actual brothers (the way the Pharisees were doing to the fifth commandment, as pious-sounding as their explanation was, it was wrong and ignored the literal reading. Jesus rebuked them for doing this).

            Do you know who else was told she’d be most blessed of women? Jael. Just like Mary was.

            • Judges 5:24 (NIV)

            24 “Most blessed of women be Jael,
            the wife of Heber the Kenite,
            most blessed of tent-dwelling women.

            • Luke 1:42 (NIV)

            42 In a loud voice she exclaimed: “Blessed are you among women, and blessed is the child you will bear!

            Considering Mary is not the only one Jesus considers his mother (maybe not biologically, but spiritually for doing the will of his Father in heaven, as he said in Matthew 12:50), it is unstable to suggest Mary, Joseph’s wife, is the Queen of Heaven. If that is the case, then all spiritual mothers of Jesus are the Queens of Heaven, in which case there isn’t just one. All Christians who are resurrected in the first resurrection will reign alongside with Christ, it’s not just Mary. And she’s not reigning there now. She has to be raised from the dead first.

            • Revelation 20:4-6 (NIV)

            4 I saw thrones on which were seated those who had been given authority to judge. And I saw the souls of those who had been beheaded because of their testimony about Jesus and because of the word of God. They[a] had not worshiped the beast or its image and had not received its mark on their foreheads or their hands. They came to life and reigned with Christ a thousand years. 5 (The rest of the dead did not come to life until the thousand years were ended.) This is the first resurrection.6 Blessed and holy are those who share in the first resurrection. The second death has no power over them, but they will be priests of God and of Christ and will reign with him for a thousand years.

            Footnotes:

            a. Revelation 20:4 Or God; I also saw those who

            Please discard the leaven of the Pharisees that has you denying Jesus had literal brothers (adelphoi) and has you thinking that Mary did not consummate her marriage to Joseph. Because she did, and Jesus did have literal, biological brothers sired by Joseph (the consequence of consummating his marriage to Mary).

        • That has always amused me. The Bible indicts these charlatans, and they’re not bright enough to see it, despite claims of being ‘Bible believing’ ‘Christians’.

          • Julie LaBrecque

            All that can be said is this – they believe their interpretation of the Bible – and that interpretation, totally divorced from the Fathers and the Church that Canonized the Bible.

          • This is why Evangelicalism is utter Gnostic chaos, and proud of being ignorant.

    • Yankie

      Julie, all I ask you is if you were a Catholic! Why do you already accuse me of not knowing the old testament? You don’t know me and you don’t know my beliefs! You should continue study the scripture, look for who the accuser of the brethren is!

      • Julie LaBrecque

        Your post to me was from my response to Desiree, and I used scripture to show that Mary is the Queen. You used no scripture to refute what I posted, Why?

  • Prayers to Mary is the same as worship. Believing there is a Queen or Mother (Goddess) in Heaven, connected to the Trinity, is heresy.

    • Julie LaBrecque

      Prayer is same as worship? Where did you dig that from? I am sorry that you don’t like what scripture has to say about Mary – sorry that you don’t understand that a WOMAN wearing a CROWN is a QUEEN.

      • If you could present Scripture that plainly states Mary is crowned the Queen of Heaven, receives prayers, and or worship, then I’d be happy to consider them. But they’re not found anywhere in Scripture.

        • BillyBobG

          Desiree, stick with what you know my dear!!!!

        • Funny, if you asked a Christian for the first 400 years to dig something up from Scripture, he would have looked at you as if you were an idiot, as no Scripture in any form we have it today existed. You can thank the Church, whom Jesus commanded to teach the Nations, for it.

      • BillyBobG

        Where in the world did she get a Crown?? She was a lonely young Teenager which God chose to bring Truth & Salvation to the world. She absolutely was not a “perpetual Virgin”, that is proven time and time again in Scripture. Nice lady, but not a Queen……she is Blessed is true, but so are those who accept the Messiah Jesus Christ as personal Lord & Savior. According to “God’s Word” we are SAINTS, but not to be worshiped by Man, that includes the Catholic Church and all the “Saints’ they have in their Legendary Tradition. But God loves them anyway!!!!BillyBobG

        • Julie LaBrecque

          You don’t know OT scriptures – nor NT scriptures. ‘Where in the world did she get a Crown??” Are you THAT ignorant? The WOMAN who gave BIRTH to the man-child that was to rule with an iron rod HAS CROWN ON HER HEAD – just as did ALL Mothers of the Kings, the ‘Sons’ of David. Mary, the QUEEN also SITS on the right hand of her Son, Psalm 45:9. Mary had NO biological children other than Jesus Christ; however, she has SPIRITUAL CHILDREN, per John 19:26-27, Rev 12:17

          • 62cutoff.com

            I love it. Half the story is literal and half figurative. One birth is actual and the others are figurative. Smh

        • That’s not quite true, Billy Bob. We are called to be Saints. We have to work to it. The English Bible is so badly done that the theology gets lost. The Eastern Orthodox, Oriental Orthodox and Roman Catholic Churches are clear on their teaching. Everyone else does guesswork. It worked well for 1,500 years, and it’s not gone away.

        • Julie LaBrecque

          ‘Wives’ of the Kings also wore crowns – but only ONE, the Queen Mother, the Mother of the King, held an OFFICE. And the subjects of the King were called the ‘flock’ of the King and the Queen Mother (Jeremiah 13:18-20). Are you going to tell me that you gave birth to Christ?

    • Kamau41

      Actually Desiree, the truth and reality is that the Holy Scriptures and early Church Fathers disagrees with you entirely. Now, if you can read, hear and understand review some history in the entire article below of what the Orthodox Christians have to say, along with the Holy Scriptures, about the importance of the veneration of the Blessed Virgin Mary.

          No, No BillyBob. Given the fact you and Desiree both are unable to refute with any reliable sources, because neither of you have any, you both have totally lost the battle. So continue to follow the traditions of men and you both will see where you will end up.

          • 62cutoff.com

            How can you say that Mary can’t be refuted as Queen of Heaven so it must be true? No where in scripture does it say so. Just because it doesn’t specifically say she wasn’t doesn’t mean she was. You have nothing to show this but one allegory about the birth of Christ that has the same woman having more offspring which you say Mary didn’t. Early church fathers writings are not scripture.

        • You mean the on Christ and Paul both implore their followers to find? And you joke about this?

    So, “Allah” (satan) is a Trans-Testicle.

    That actually explains quite a bit, such as how this idea of “Trans”- this and “Trans”-that and a complete abandonment of God’s design in favor of evil blasphemy and heresy.

    No wonder the fags hate the Judaeo-Christian God and His followers, and seek to force them to bend to satan’s will.

    “Allah” (satan) is a fag, and he/she/it is hell bent (pun intended) on pushing the fag agenda and damning as many poor souls along the way as possible.

    I pity the poor souls who will perish because of their being led astray by this abomination.

    I would stop before saying Allah is a hermaphrodite, as if that is a shock. Even the Old Testament speaks of YHWH acting like a mother at times. Jesus even mentions it “I would have gathered you as a hen gathers her chicks.” So yeah… God is referred to as Father more than not, but it’s also detailed that this is an anthropomorphism.

    Islam seems to be an Arab tribal (official) religion that was created in 600 C.E. to me. However there were Ismaelites that are mentioned in Genesis, they had twelve princes probably similar to Israel’s twelve tribes. So there were real Ismaelites, and Islam claims to come from them. However the Ismaelites predates Islam. So God’s word’s to Hagar basically.

Stealing an infidels property is not a crime and death to any person not a muslim is justified.

    They use the word incorrectly and blaspheme. They were forcibly taught Arabic and erroneously taught that Allah directly translates as “God”.

    The Christians in the Middle East have suffered an almost complete take-over of their original culture and language. The only ones to speak Arabic were those in Arabia! Arabic was *not* and is *not* the native language of Christians outside of Arabia. So they use “Allah”, forced on them by the sword, in error.

    • Correct. The word for God in Arabic is Al-Rab, the Lord and Al-Ilah as in Hebrew Eloh and not Allah.

  • Your claims, if I examine each and everyone (which you have not provided) are simply done by building on similarities while ignoring the differences. This trick is what generates volumes of worthless reading material claiming that Christianity borrowed from the “Norse Trinity” that the Vikings themselves were Trinitarians or that Jesus is a copy of Horus, Mithras, Krishna, Dionysis and other pagan gods or that Mary is Mother worship of Ishtar as “Queen of Heaven” warned about in Jeremiah 7:18 …

    Now, can I convert you from being a grasshopper? I doubt it.

    In every essay we wrote on Shoebat.com the response method of the grasshopper would rarely if ever address evidence presented, but to either change the subject by applying a rain of problems with Christianity in the form of red-herrings. Then this grasshopper becomes an instant historian. Mind you, all the grasshopper like you knows about history are tidbits like ‘Constantine changed Christianity and transformed it into paganism’ where ‘Catholics are idol worshippers who inherited everything (Eucharist and Icons) from Nimrod and Samiramis’.

    Even the poor Christmas tree was simply the grasshopper’s training field, where he eats the evergreen conifer including the beautifully set iconic displays of Jesus, Joseph and Mary placed under it by a loving mother or the local township.

    Here, I will debunk your assertion by a simple question: show a time-line between Nimrod and Samriamis.

    You will not even admit (because you are a grasshopper) that THE TWO WERE NOT EVEN IN THE SAME PERIOD OF HISTORY.

    And while much worthless material is written, it takes double good work to refute them. Yet understanding this key locks the door preventing the grasshopper an entry.

    So answer my question, confess grasshopper or be gone. Which will it be grasshopper?
