Two interpretations considered

Posted January 1, 2022. Updated January 4, 2022.
This essay is a transcription of Dr. Walter Veith’s video teaching which explains the identity of Mystery Babylon, the Antichrist, and the False Prophet from a Seventh-Day Adventist perspective — it is a must read (or watch) for all Christians of all religions. Also included in this article is an alternate interpretation of scripture.
Dr. Veith’s teaching can be found on these video platforms (links open in a new tab):
The audio version of this teaching is on Soundcloud here.
There are two “popular” interpretations of who the Antichrist and the False Prophet are. The Seventh-Day Adventists interpret the Antichrist to be the Pope, and the False Prophet to be Protestant America.
The other interpretation will be included in brackets within this article. It interprets the False Prophet as the Roman Catholic Church, now headed by a Jesuit, combined with their “children” which are Protestant America and their masonic secret societies/Ashkenazi Jews/Zionists — churchcraft and statecraft. They cause all to worship the Antichrist which is of Middle-Eastern origin.
The following text are the words of Dr. Veith. The alternate interpretation and any clarifications are in [brackets]:
From the Beginning
The loud cry is beginning to swell so people need to know what this is all about. Let us begin from the beginning and see what the bible says when it talks about Babylon and how it relates to the old testament.
The beauty of the bible is it is never obsolete, never an old story, for even the old stories are typological stories so they are very, very important for the times that we live in. [Typology is the doctrine of types or symbols; a discourse on types, especially those of scripture.]
Babylon has Fallen (539 B.C.)
In Daniel 5:25-28, Belshazzar was sitting at his party and the writing came upon the wall and Daniel was called to interpret it:
“25 And this is the writing that was written, Mene, Mene, Tekel, Upharsin.
26 This is the interpretation of the thing: Mene; God hath numbered thy kingdom, and finished it.
27 Tekel; Thou art weighed in the balances, and art found wanting.
28 Peres; Thy kingdom is divided, and given to the Medes and Persians.” ~Daniel 5:25-28
Now why is MENE repeated? Because it was referring to two kings. There were two rulers – Belshazzar was the one who was in charge of the civil duties, the government as it were; and his father was the one who was interested in the religious aspects… he had basically reclused himself and was the religious head. Of note: Belshazzar’s father was NOT Nebuchadnezzar.
So what we have here are two MENES and both of them have been numbered and found wanting. [In verse 26], God numbered their kingdom and finished it, both in the civil sphere AND in the religious sphere. It is a union of church and state. So it’s very important that there is this repetition that we find here.
This was the fall of literal Babylon, and the bible says it will never be rebuilt. Never. The bible actually says it will never be rebuilt and occupied. We have museum exhibits but there is no city of Babylon in the world today.
So this is a very interesting, basic starting point with the fall of Babylon. Both aspects fell [civil/government and religious].
The Loud Cry
Let’s go to Revelation chapter 18 where it deals with the loud cry.
Verse 1: “And after these things I saw another angel come down from heaven, having great power; and the earth was lightened with his glory.”
Now an angel is a messenger, and God always works through his agents and through humanity. This message with the power of the angel behind it is a message that must go out into the world.
Rev. 18:2 — “And he cried mightily with a strong voice, saying, Babylon the great is fallen, is fallen, and is become the habitation of devils, and the hold of every foul spirit, and a cage of every unclean and hateful bird.”
We have a repetition again there — two things that have fallen: MENE, MENE, and fallen, fallen. Again there are two aspects: church-craft and statecraft. They are linked together in a unit and they are fallen.
Separation of Church and State
In the study I [Dr. Veith] did on Hebrews, it became very clear that the kingly duty and the priestly duty were to be strictly separated. If a king crossed that boundary and felt that he was a priest, then leprosy was the result. Now what is leprosy a symbol of? Sin.
Now do we have an individual on the planet at the moment who holds himself to be a king and also a priest? Yes. And therefore, what clings to him? Leprosy/all the sinfulness. It’s called the man of sin. There is only one that is both a king and a priest [the pope], and he is both a horn/a political power and a woman/a church. So this is what is fallen.
Babylon the Great is fallen, is fallen, it’s become a habitation of devils, and the hold of every foul spirit and the cage of every unclean and hateful bird. Now a bird in the bible can have many different symbolic meanings. The holy spirit is depicted as a clean bird/a dove — it’s a very interesting symbol because a dove is also a gentle creature. So it’s become a house of every unclean and hateful bird, and therefore, we can assume there’s a false holy spirit active in this system and there are demonic activities going on.
And then the unfortunate news is that “all [the] nations have drunk of the wine of the wrath of her fornication” (Rev. 18:3), so the nations have drunk in their philosophy.
“…and the kings of the earth have committed fornication with her” (Rev. 18:3). So the political systems are united with her — that is an illicit union — church and state. Fallen, fallen.
“…and the merchants of the earth are waxed rich through the abundance of her delicacies (Rev. 18:3b). So the economic world is also embodied in this church-state system.
“And I heard another voice from heaven, saying, Come out of her my people, that ye be not partakers of her sins, and that ye receive not of her plagues” (Rev. 18:4). She’s going to be punished. And according to this verse, God’s people are there, in her. They have to come out.
“For her sins have reached unto heaven, and God hath remembered her iniquities” (Rev. 18:5). So if people read this verse, they will have to understand what sin is so they can identify the system that we are talking about here.
[Revelation 17:1-6 tells us that Mystery Babylon is the woman that rides the beast of Revelation 13.]
Sin is Transgression of God’s Law
The bible is very clear that sin is the transgression of the law.
“Whosoever committeth sin transgresseth also the law: for sin is the transgression of the law” (1 John 3:4).
And James 2 verse 9 says “if ye have respect to persons, ye commit sin, and are convinced of the law as transgressors.” Now that’s a very interesting spin on the ball! Basically the bible is telling you what sin is… it’s the transgression of the law… God’s law, obviously… the ten commandments.
So this system is a sinful system. It transgresses God’s law.
The Roman Catholic Church, as we know, has not only transgressed God’s law; they’ve changed it, and therefore makes sure everyone else transgresses it as well. Or, [from the true remnant’s point of view], they think they’ve changed it.
When [scripture] says you “have respect to persons,” does that mean I may not respect certain individuals, or I may not have respect to my parents or to whomever? No. What this means is if you pay attention and listen to someone who takes you away from God’s law, which is sin, then that is sin too, even if it looks like he is from God. So be careful that no one deceives you.
So if you have respect to this person, this man of sin, then you become a sinner if you are compliant to his wishes.
[Life application: Being a respecter of persons is also done when one chooses to trust the interpretations of men of renown or of an organization when the bible clearly states otherwise.]
Babylon is a Transgressor of God’s Law
So Babylon is a transgressor of God’s law. Revelation 18 verse 4 says “And I heard another voice from heaven, saying, “Come out of her my people,” because the world will be destroyed because of sin and God doesn’t want you to be a partaker of her sins. That means he wants you to keep His law and not their law. Why? So that you may be saved and “receive not of her plagues.”
Verse 18:5 says “For her sins have reached unto heaven, and God hath remembered her iniquities.” God’s law of liberty is there to protect you, for your protection.
Who is Babylon
Now we are at the point where we can say who is Babylon. Revelation 16:19 gives us more clues: “And the great city was divided into three parts,…” So she also calls herself a city, a city on seven hills, and she was divided into three parts. So Babylon consists of three components.
“…and the cities of the nations fell:…” Why? Because they were complicit with her.
“…and great Babylon came in remembrance before God, to give unto her the cup of the wine of the fierceness of his wrath” (Rev. 16:19). So it is also the great city that rules over the nations, and it consists of three parts.
If we go to verse 13, we see that it is the one full of unclean spirits like frogs, and they come out of three components so we have the definition… they come out of the mouth of the dragon, out of the mouth of the beast and out of the mouth of the false prophet.
And I saw three unclean spirits like frogs come out of the mouth of the dragon, out of the mouth of the beast, and out of the mouth of the false prophet.Revelation 16:13
Now all three of those are identified in the scripture very clearly, and the reformers made it absolutely clear that they understood that the beast power was none other than the Roman system, the Roman Catholic system.
It had unclean spirits. In other words, the spirits by which they acted was not the spirit of God, it was a false spirit because it is not in harmony of God’s law. To the law and to the testimony, if they speak not in harmony with this word, there is no light in them.
Now, who is the dragon? Who is the beast? And who is the false prophet? Let’s go though them and let the bible answer.
The Dragon = Satan
Now let’s go through who the dragon is. Revelation 12:9 — “And the great dragon was cast out, that old serpent, called the devil, and Satan, which deceiveth the whole world: he was cast into the earth, and his angels were cast out with him.”
This is demonic; it is devilish. That’s a component of Babylon. So there must be dogmas and doctrines and teachings with which the world is deceived that come directly from the mouth of the serpent. It’s a part of Babylon.
John 8:44 says, “Ye are of your father the devil, and the lusts of your father ye will do. He was a murderer from the beginning, and abode not in the truth, because there is no truth in him. When he speaketh a lie, he speaketh his own, for he is a liar; and the father of it.”
So much of what comes from Babylon is basically lies. Lies and deceit. On every single level. You cannot trust anything that comes out of that mouth. But the whole world is running after the beast because it’s so sugar-coated and nice… it was presented in a very nice package.
The dragon also is deceptive, and he works in secrecy. So let’s go to the dragon’s lies.
Genesis 3:4-5 — “And the serpent said unto the woman, Ye shall not surely die: 5 For God doth know that in the day ye eat thereof, then your eyes shall be opened, and ye shall be as gods, knowing good and evil.” So there are the three lies of the serpent:
- There’s no death.
- You will be like gods.
- You, in your own capacity, will be able to decide what is good and what is evil. You don’t need God to tell you.
Those are the three lies. Ok, we’ll come back to them.
The Beast Component
Revelation 13 tells us who the beast is. Verse 1 — “And I stood upon the sand of the sea, and saw a beast rise up out of the sea,” which is the waters amongst the nations. “…having seven heads and ten horns, and upon his horns ten crowns, and upon his heads the name of blasphemy.”
So these are the attributes that we found in Daniel chapter 7 in the little horn. [The little horn was not a Daniel 7 beast, but is growing out of the 4th beast of Rome (verses 7-8). The little horn matures and becomes the Rev. 13 Antichrist beast. The 10 horns on the Daniel 7 Rome beast (3 have since fallen) are different than the 10 horns of the Rev. 13 Antichrist beast — see Rev. 17:12.] A blasphemous power, and he controls the nations. [Rev. 17:3 tells us the beast that rises, not the woman who has had power since the 4th kingdom of Daniel, has the seven heads and ten horns.]
Revelation 13:2 — “And the beast which I saw was like unto a leopard, and his feet were as the feet of a bear, and his mouth as the mouth of a lion: and the dragon gave him his power, and his seat, and great authority.” So the lines between the dragon and this power are rock-solid, and it has all the components of Daniel chapter 7.
So it was like a leopard: it had Greek philosophy in it. It was like a bear: it had Medo-Persian philosophy in it. And it spoke like a lion: Babylonian components in it. And the dragon gave him his power. There’s only one system that qualifies, and all the reformers said this was the Roman Catholic system. We’re not talking about people; we’re talking about the system. Their philosophy is based on Greek philosophy. Natural law philosophy = Greek philosophy.
[The alternate translation: “Leopard” does symbolize Greek philosophy which the Romans adopted — the little horn rises out of Rome. The bear is Medo-Persian and the future Antichrist will come out of this line of people (around modern-day Turkey, Iraq, Armenia-Persia area). Rome/the Roman Catholic Church is the woman that has two horns like a lamb (churchcraft/religion and statecraft/political) but spoke as a dragon in Revelation 13:11.]
Do they believe about the state of the dead, that God says that you will surely die, or do they believe the serpent, that you are immortal? So if we go to Revelation chapter 17, we get more information.
The Great Harlot Mystery Babylon
Verse 17:1 — “And there came one of the seven angels which had the seven vials,…” So this is talking about the end time appearance of this creature because the angel has the vials of plague in his hand, so it’s just before the end. And he’s saying, “Come hither; I will shew unto thee the judgment of the great whore that sitteth upon many waters:” So I’ll show you this apostate church called a whore in the bible, spiritually speaking, is an apostate system. She sits on many waters so she is represented in many nations.
Verse 17:2 — “With whom the kings of the earth have committed fornication, and the inhabitants of the earth have been made drunk with the wine of her fornication.” So the inhabitants of the earth would rather believe her version than God’s version, and the version she’s presenting is that of the dragon, and he’s a liar… so it’s based on a lie.
Verse 17:3 — “So he carried me away in the spirit into the wilderness: and I saw a woman” — that’s the church — “sit upon a scarlet coloured beast, full of names of blasphemy, having seven heads and ten horns.” Now this scarlet beast is the same beast with the seven heads in different forms that we find in many, many places — Revelation chapters 11, 12, 13, 17 — and the one that is scarlet, he comes up out of the bottomless pit. So it’s demonic force. It’s very demonic.
[The seven heads and 10 horns on the beast in Revelation 11, 12, 13 and 17 are DIFFERENT than the seven heads and ten horns on the Roman 4th beast of Daniel 7. The Revelation beast’s mountains/kingdoms are the same (represents all the world’s kingdoms of their time), but the ten horns are different — these horns are kings that will reign one hour with the Antichrist Revelation beast (see Rev. 17:16-18).]
Verse 17:4 — “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:” Now sun worship was the great problem in the time of Israel. The only church in the world that uses the symbol of the woman with the golden cup in her hand is Rome. There’s no other. And the Jesuits, they even depict the woman with the golden cup and the host in the form of a sun disk coming out with the letters IHS on them which are the symbols of the Jesuit order and are Baal worship…. Beelzebub worship.
Verse 17:5 — And upon her forehead was a name written, MYSTERY, BABYLON THE GREAT, THE MOTHER OF HARLOTS AND ABOMINATIONS OF THE EARTH.” She is mystery… secret. Everything is done in darkness… behind the scenes. This system, it has children, and they are also harlots. In other words, they are partaking of the same apostasy as she partakes in because they have swallowed her doctrines.
The Harlot’s Children
So who are these daughters? In the middle ages, she had no daughters. She was the only one, and then, Protestantism split from her. It’s interesting, at the Council of Trent, when the archbishop of Regere walked into the council of the dispute on whether the bible should be the standard or whether tradition should be the standard. And he said to them, “you people, you keep the Sunday. This is the mark of the Roman Catholic Church, a mark of her authority, so you are not following your bible… you are following the teachings of the Roman Catholic Church, therefore, you are just rebels.” And then she said, “I sit as queen. My children shall return to me.” The day of the Ecumenical Council, and they’re all sitting in that council together bundled tight together before the fire. The mother is the head, but interestingly, she has her own organization… she has all the children in the ecumenical one but she pulls the strings and they are returning to the mother.
Verse 17:6 — “And I saw the woman drunken with the blood of the saints, and with the blood of the martyrs of Jesus: and when I saw her, I wondered with great admiration.” She rides a beast. [The alternate interpretation is that the beast she rides is the dragon/Antichrist and the Roman church is the false prophet.] She has political aspirations, but she also is a woman, she has religious aspirations.
[Next, at time stamp 24:58 of the video, Dr. Veith shares artwork done by the reformers with the point being that Martin Luther and the reformers were all convinced that the Roman papacy was the Antichrist.]
Who is the False Prophet?
So now we need to find out who the false prophet was. We know who the dragon was, we know who the beast is; now who’s the false prophet? Now we remember that she had children that had been spawned, the only ones spawned from her were the Protestant children.
So in Revelation 19:20, it says that “the beast was taken, and with him the false prophet.” It goes on to tell us what the false prophet had done: “it wrought miracles before him, with which he deceived them that had received the mark of the beast, and them that worshipped his image.” So here is a religious system where miracles play a large role to convince the people that whatever they are doing is in harmony with God when in actuality it is against God’s will.
So this is very interesting. [Verse 19:20 goes on to say] “they both were cast alive into a lake of fire burning with brimstone.” This false prophet should have known better. They had everything at their disposal, but they’re sitting in an ecumenical council with them preaching their doctrines, keeping papal law rather than Christ’s law. They had the opportunity… they actually did come out but then they went back. [She said] “my children will return, I will not suffer loss of children.” She’s very arrogant.
The Second Beast of Rev. 13
So the second beast of Revelation 13 is associated with this false prophet. [Revelation 13:11-18 IS the false prophet, the beast of the earth. The Antichrist is in Revelation 13:1-10 and is the beast that rises up out of the sea/peoples.]
Revelation 13:11 — “And I beheld another beast coming up out of the earth; and he had two horns like a lamb, and he spake as a dragon.” Now he had two horns. Now we’ve seen there were “MENE, MENE” and we’ve also seen there was a “fallen, fallen.” Here we have two horns. One is state-craft, the other one is church-craft, and they are both speaking like a dragon, but look like a lamb… it looks like a Christian entity.
[Both interpretations agree that the second beast’s two horns are church-craft and statecraft, but this verse is speaking of the false prophet; not the antichrist. Rome/the second beast will give her kingdom over to the Antichrist/the first beast that Satan indwells — see Rev. 17:16-18. The false prophet is very active right now. The Antichrist will not appear until the false prophet is ready to turn their kingdom over to him.]
Now we know who gave power unto the first beast, the dragon. So whatever language that first beast is speaking is dragon language; now the second one is beginning to speak like a dragon too.
[The Antichrist will come on the scene speaking like a dragon. It is the Roman church who is paving the way for the Antichrist that will eventually speak like a dragon.]
This is Protestant America speaking like a dragon. [Remember, Protestant America is with the papacy — Rome never lost any children — you cannot divide them. Both Rome and Protestants are the false prophet and false Christianity. Vatican city is the head nation of the false prophet system and the USA is like its capitol.]
So when they get onto their pulpit — these politicians and these ecclesiastics — they speak the language of the first beast. We’ve shown they are in full harmony, and even signed documents in the Vatican publicly to show that they are in harmony with the thinking of Rome. [They are in harmony because they are both the false prophet system.] And Rome is lying, according to the scriptures.
Verse 13:12 — “And he [the second beast] exerciseth all the power of the first beast before him, and causeth the earth and them which dwell therein to worship the first beast, whose deadly wound was healed.”
[History shows that Rome’s wound was not deadly, but the Medo-Persian’s/Ottoman Empire’s was. See this article detailing the history of the Medo-Persian and Roman empires.]
Now the first beast was a persecuting power and if you didn’t listen to it, there were consequences: The Inquisition, the (inaudible word here), you name it. [Rome was an Antichrist of sorts when the New Covenant was ushered in, but the future Antichrist will not come until after the False Prophet has turned their kingdom over to him — see Rev. 17:16-18.]
So this second beast will do the same thing… it will force people. How? By making legislation forcing people to comply to certain norms and standards of which they make laws, and those are laws which actually belong to the first beast, to Rome. [The laws come from the dragon to the Roman false prophet to prepare the way for the Middle-Eastern Antichrist.]
And how does he convince the people that God is apparently on their side? By these miracles that were written. We know that it is the false prophet that does the miracles, so let’s read it here:
Verse 13:13-14 — “He doeth great wonders, so that he maketh fire come down from heaven on earth in the sight of men, 14 And he deceiveth them that dwell on the earth by the means of those miracles…” So there we have the connection that the false prophet is the one who is performing the miracles. And he’s in cahoots with the first beast. When fire comes down from heaven, that’s an outpouring of the holy spirit; but the birds are unclean so this is a false holy spirit leading people up the garden path to the law and to the testimony. If they speak not according to this word there is no light in them.
So the Protestant churches with their prosperity gospel and their miracle-working gospel are leading people back to Rome. We’ve seen Kenneth Copeland do it. We’ve seen evangelical leaders do it. We’ve seen Rick Warren do it. We’ve seen all of them taking the people back to Rome. [Yes. The false prophet system is leading them into Roman Babylon.] So the false prophet, Roman Protestantism, is in total harmony with this system.
So the three components are the dragon/spiritism/spiritualism; the second is the beast component Roman Catholicism; and the third component is the false prophet [previously called American Protestantism in this teaching]. So in a sense, we have a father, son and a holy spirit. [Satan cannot create; he can only mimic God.] All power is given to the son, everybody bows down to Rome. [Incorrect. The dragon will indwell the Antichrist and will put himself as god… there will be no savior or all-powerful son in the demonic trinity; only the Antichrist god — Rome has people worshiping it now before it even arrives in physical form (their god will be nature/sun worship which people will later find out is the dragon). Our Savior Jesus Christ was given to us by a loving Father God — Satan will provide no such loving gift.] And she [Rome] dictates… all judgment has been given unto her. She will decide what is right and what is wrong. [But she will then be completely destroyed by the Antichrist – Rev. 17:16-18.] This false spirit is running through all of them and that’s what’s also giving them the opportunity to unite. They are not uniting on truth; they are uniting on error.
Institutionalized False Prophetic Movements
When we talk about the false prophet, we are talking about institutionalized false prophetic movements. [The Roman Catholic Church fits this false prophet description.]
The term false prophet may apply to individuals but also to institutions. In the days before Protestantism there was largely only one false prophet as institution, namely Rome. When Protestantism split into factions and manifested the same spirit of persecution towards those that differed from them as Rome had done, many false prophets arose. In fact, Christ warned against these false prophets. We read about it in Matthew and John.
Matthew 24:11 — “And many false prophets shall arise, and shall deceive many.” We just heard that the second beast will deceive. How many Protestant factions are there in that beast? Thousands. Some claim over 3,000.
1 John 4:1 — “Beloved, believe not every spirit, but try the spirits whether they are of God: because many false prophets are gone out into the world.” So we don’t have to look for individuals. We can look for institutions.
All of these thousands of institutions that preach a gospel of prosperity, and a gospel that the law is no more; they adhere to the papal law. Amazing.
Jeremiah 51:9 says “We would have healed Babylon, but she is not healed: forsake her, and let us go every one into his own country: for her judgment reacheth unto heaven, and is lifted up even to the skies.” So that is the warning about typical Babylon; the original Babylon. He would have healed her, but she cannot be healed. So forsake her. Come out of her. Flee from her.
Now when would he have healed her? Well, right from the beginning. They had the opportunity with Nebuchadnezzar… they accepted the truth. But the very next generation went back and they went from bad to worse until MENE MENE, TEKEL, UPHARSIN. It was over. So flee from Babylon — she will be destroyed. The same will happen to anti-typical Babylon.
Revelation 19:20 — “And the beast was taken, and with him the false prophet…” So that’s the religious systems in Christianity: Catholicism and fallen Protestantism. “….that wrought miracles before him, with which he deceived them that had received the mark of the beast, and them that worshipped his image. These both were cast alive into a lake of fire burning with brimstone.”
The devil has to wait another thousand years before he gets destroyed. [This is a false teaching. See my article “Millennial Reign” — The Thousand Years for details.]
Like the Jeremiah Babylon, the one in Revelation could have been healed. There was a Protestant movement. They had the opportunity. They had the Council of Trent. They had the word of God. NO. They rejected it and placed the tradition above the word of God, and then they had the audacity to go and dig up manuscripts out of waste paper baskets and violate the original manuscripts and bring out hundreds of versions which differ from the received text… all in accordance with Babylon/their theories.
[“I form the light, and create darkness: I make peace, and create evil: I the Lord do all these things.” ~Isaiah 45:7.]
A Clash of Wills
So basically what we see in this world is a clash of wills.
Matthew 6:10 says “Thy kingdom come. Thy will be done in earth, as it is in heaven.” The will of God is only being done in heaven at the moment and definitely not in the earth. [FULL-STOP HERE. Absolutely EVERYTHING being done on this earth is God’s will. EVERYTHING. Proverbs 16:4 says “The LORD hath made all things for himself: yea, even the wicked for the day of evil.” Revelation 17:17 says “God hath put in their hearts to fulfill His will” and what He has them do (put Satan in power on this earth) is EVIL to the core. The Lord says, “I form the light, and create darkness: I make peace, and create evil: I the Lord do all these things.” ~Isaiah 45:7. But ALL works to the good of them that love the Lord, to them that are the called according to His purpose (Romans 8:28). The Adventists misinterpret Matthew 6:10 because they believe Jesus’ kingdom is AFTER His Second Coming which is a false teaching — see my article “The Kingdom of God is Here.”]
So something must happen. This earth, and its rebellion, must be destroyed so that the will of God can be done in heaven AND in earth. [I’m in complete and utter disbelief that any Christian would think that God’s will is not happening on this earth.]
Mark 3:35 says “For whosoever shall do the will of God, the same is my brother, and my sister, and mother.” If you do the will of God, you are part of the family of God. If you do not do the will of God, I don’t know you. You practice against the law of God.
Ephesians 6:6 — “Not with eyeservice, as menpleasers; but as the servants of Christ, doing the will of God from the heart;”
Hebrews 10:36 — “For ye have need of patience, that, after ye have done the will of God, ye might receive the promise.” Can you receive the promise without doing the will of God? No. So where do you find the will of God? In the law… and you better make sure you read the right law.
1 Peter 2:15, 1 Peter 3:17, 1 John 2:17, Romans 2:7 and James 2:8 all speak of the will of God.
The will of God is obviously very important. That’s the one side. The other side is the opposite of that. So what is the opposite of doing well? We read it in 2 Kings 17:13 — “Yet the Lord testified against Israel, and against Judah, by all the prophets, and by all the seers, saying, Turn ye from your evil ways, and keep my commandments and my statutes, according to all the law which I commanded your fathers, and which I sent to you by my servants the prophets.”
So what is evil? Going against the law. So Babylon is a system that has done away with God’s law. Idolatry is rampant. Rome took out the second commandment which says thou may not have idols. Rome changed the fourth commandment, the Sabbath which binds us to the Creator and Redeemer, and bound it to herself and changed it to the Sunday.
Babylon is fallen… we’ve read it many times. She has become a house of demons (Revelation 18:1-2).

I very much appreciate the research the Adventists do on end times prophecy. Most denominations will not discuss this topic which is detrimental to their members.
The following is my personal interpretation of scripture regarding Mystery Babylon, the Antichrist and the False Prophet:
Mystery Babylon is Jesuit-controlled false Christianity, the Jews-that-are-not in Revelation 3:9, their branches of freemasonry, Zionism and all secret societies, and their false gods — it is the false prophet system that runs the world making the rich richer and the poor poorer, and increasingly demonstrates its detestation and oppression of the true righteous Christians.
The whore in Revelation 17:1 is the woman in 17:3 which is Mystery Babylon in 17:5. She is also that great city which reigneth over the kings of the earth in 17:18. The Vatican with their Jesuit pope heads this circus through the use of their Zionist masonic societies and their false Christianity mask. They are the false prophet/second beast spoken of in Revelation 13:11-18. The Antichrist/first beast is described in Revelation 13:1-10.
Verse 17:17 says God will move them to give their kingdom over to the beast on which she rides in 17:3. That beast has 10 horns which are 10 kings who are going to be given power for a short time with the beast (verse 17:12). But then there is this: Verse 17:16 says these 10 kings HATE the whore/Mystery Babylon/false prophet system and will “make her naked (expose her), eat her flesh and burn her with fire (nukes?).” The hive minds running this plandemic and injection campaign and the entire world, are going to be destroyed by the beast’s kings to whom they give their kingdom to!
The above explanation is one reason why I believe the beast is of middle-Eastern origin, a group of 10 middle-Eastern kings headed by the leader of the Islamic Caliphate or an individual from the modern-day Turkey/Iraq/Armenia area (see below for resources).
I know some people want the pope to be the antichrist, but the middle-Eastern beast hates that Jesuit whore harlot and is going to take their entire false prophet Babylonian system down. Matthew 24:21 says it will be a time of turmoil like this world has NEVER seen, and we’ve already seen the Roman Catholic Church torture and murder millions of Christians in ancient Rome. This coming turmoil is going to be a non-stop middle-Eastern tornado on a global scale.
I pray the comparisons of these two end times prophecy interpretations have been a helpful addition to your bible studies. May you always have peace and joy in Christ Jesus, our blessed hope. Amen.
RE: A Middle-Eastern Antichrist
Click here for a very detailed article explaining all the heads, horns, beasts and mountains in Revelation and connecting them to our past history. It also explains why the Antichrist is the head of the Islamic Caliphate. If the link goes down, email me and I will send you a Word copy of the article.
This is also another wonderful article on why the Antichrist comes from the middle-East but is not necessarily the head of the Islamic Caliphate: Five Reasons Why the Antichrist Will Come from the Middle-East. If this link should go down, email me and I’ll send you a Word copy of the article.

I cannot find a good video about the Jesuits, but I recommend this free book: The Jesuit Conspiracy: The Secret Plan of the Order by Jacopo Leone. The digital version can be downloaded in many forms here, or you may wish to purchase a paper copy from Amazon here.

RE: The Freemasons
Freemasonry is a Luciferian society, and many of it’s lower-degree masons (most of our law enforcement and many pastors in the U.S.) are unaware of the evil to which they have sworn an oath. They are an arm of the false prophet (with the Ashkenazi Jews being the other). God will not accept a sworn oath-keeper/idolater into His heavenly kingdom. I highly recommend the book The Guide for Ministry to Masons by David & Donna Carrico if you are a mason or know one.
