What is the religion of Babylon? Who is Baal? What does this have to do with ME?

The religion of Babylon began at Babel shortly after the flood. Nimrod, the mighty one, established his kingdom and built many great cities. One of these was Babel, which later became Babylon (Genesis 10:8-9). Nimrod, whose very name means "he rebelled"; begun a false religion; which consisted of the worship of the heavens (sky and space, including the host there of: sun, moon, stars,,etc.). Genesis chapter 11 tells the story of the tower of Babel (the pagans used the high places as places of worship in this satanic religion). We see God ended their one world order, and scattered the people; But by this the false religion spread all over the world.

Through the study of ancient records found in the unearthed remains of the biblical city Ninevah, we learn that their first ruler, whom they called Ninus (Nimrod) was deified after death by his wife, Queen Semiramis. Nimrod, became known as the sun god. Baal, which is found through out the bible, is another name for this sun god. Later we learn that Semiramis was deified as the Queen of Heaven, and her son, Tammuz became the savior in this religion. Baal is called different names, in different languages. The shechemites called him BaalBerith; the Ekronites called him Baalzebub; the Phoenician called him Baalim, the moabitish called him Baalpeor; the Babylonians called him Bel; we also can find where he is called Milcom and Molech(1st Kings 11:5-7). Greeks and Romans called him Jupiter, Saturn, Mithra and Janus.

Other names for Semiramis was Ashtoreth in the Sidonian tongue, and Ashtoroth in the Phoenician's. In Jeremiah 7:18 she is called the queen of Heaven. Romans called her Venus or Cybele. The Ephesians called her Dianna.We can find both Baal and Ashtoreth together in Judges 10:6,,1st Samuel 7:4,and 1st Samuel 12:10 . In Acts 19:27-35 we see them as Jupiter and Dianna.

Tammuz is mentioned in Ezekeil 8:14; And is believed to be called Malcham in Zephaniah 1:4-5, and Chemosh by the Moabites. (see 1st Kings 11:5-7). He is also called Cupid and Hercules.

  Pontifex Maximuz of Mystery Babylon

In the Mysteries of Babylon (the religion of Baal), the high priest or Pontifex Maximuz, was considered the representative of god on earth; and fulfilled both the duties of high priest and king in the same manner Nimrod did. For example in Egypt, which was fully given to the Mysteries, the Pharaoh (king) was considered a god-man; the incarnation of Raah (Baal) on earth. In Babylon, the king also filled the postion of Pontifex Maximuz. Infact king Nebuchadnezzar's grandchild, Belshazzar was the last to hold the title in the kingdom of Babylon (Daniel 5). After Belshazzar's death, scholars say, the Mysteries of Babylon continued in its entirety in Pergamos, a city of Asia minor. Pergamos's very name means 'fortified tower'. Christ made references to the Mysteries, their 'Pontifex Maximuz' and their increasing in influence in the church during the first century. In his letter to the church of Pergamos he states; "I know thy works, where thou dwellest, even where Satan's seat (Throne) is" ,, "wherein Antipas was my faithful martyr, who was slain among you, where Satan dwelleth" Revelation 2:13. Christ makes it very clear here, that what he considers as the 'Throne of Satan' was located in Pergamos. How can we be sure that the 'Throne' is speaking of the 'Pontifex Maximus' of Baal worship? Verse 14 states "But I have a few things against thee, because thou hast there them that hold the doctrine of Ba'laam," we know that Balaam was a prophet of Baal (Numbers 22:41).

From Pergamos, the Mysteries migrated to Rome {namely in the form of the 'Mithra' occult} Where the title of 'Pontifex Maximuz' was common well before the time of Christ. The term Petr-Roma was also given to the 'Pontifex'. Pronounced, Peter Rome, the Pontifex was seen as the grand "interpreter" of the Roman Mysteries. Thus, nothing more natural could be considered than the bestowing of the keys of Janus (Baal) and Cybele (Ashtoreth) to the one man who was able to open the dark secretes of the Mysteries.


In 431 A.D. the Pope broadly declared his pre-eminence, as the holder of the keys of Peter. It was claimed then as it is now that the Apostle Peter, the Apostle of the Jews 'Circumsized' (Galatians 2:7), set upon a throne in Rome, and gave his authority and the keys of heaven to the Roman church. This factless claim, raised the Pope to the Position of 'Pontifex Maximuz' and finished the foundation of the Mysteries which began to be laid by Constantine in 325 A.D.

Anyone who has read the bible, knows the trouble GOD had with his people (the Jews) turning from him and following Baal; But few realize that the christains are doing the same thing today. Right now the "body of Christ", the church is defiled with Baal worship.Protestants and Catholics alike hold to the customs and traditions of the Early Apostate church. The Apostate church of Rome, between 325 and 500 A.D., took the customs and traditions of Babylon and incorporated it into the purity of Christ. Thus forming a false church; the Mother of Harlots. This studyguide is given so that the true people of God can know the truth, and then seperate themselves from these abominations.
