The Roman Pope Travels from Mystical to Literal Babylon
In March 2021 the Roman pontiff, Francis I, visited Iraq, meeting political and religious leaders, etc. And while there he also visited the site of ancient Babylon. Continue reading
“And he causeth all, both small and great, rich and poor, free and bond, to receive a mark in their right hand, or in their foreheads: and that no man might buy or sell, save he that had the mark, or the name of the beast, or the number of his name. Here is wisdom. Let him that hath understanding count the number of the beast: for it is the number of a man; and his number is Six hundred threescore and six” (Rev. 13:16-18)
It didn’t take long. As soon as the talk started about working on producing a vaccine for the coronavirus, and Bill Gates et al started to call for mandatory vaccinations not only to supposedly immunise people against the virus but also to possibly implant microchips at the same time, the Futurist prophecy pundits went into overdrive, hysterically asserting for the umpteenth time, “The mark of the Beast is here!”
We shouldn’t be surprised. Every time there is any hint of anything of this sort, we hear the same warnings issued. These Chicken Littles have told us “the sky is falling” so many times we’ve lost count, and each and every time they’ve been wrong. This vaccine/microchip/mark-of-the-Beast tale is just the latest in a long, long line of versions of the same tale, all delivered in their day with just as much certainty as this one. Every single time it comes to nothing in the end. But this does not stop the Futurist newsboys from calling out the same sensationalist headline again and again: “The mark of the Beast is here! Read all about it!” It’s a headline that sells their “end times” books, after all. Continue reading

In my article, The “Islamic Antichrist” Deception, exposing the Futurist theory that the Antichrist will be a man from the Muslim world, I stated that a prominent author promoting this error, who many consider to be a Bible teacher and “prophecy expert”, is Joel Richardson. Well, in 2017 he brought out his latest book, Mystery Babylon, in which he went even further into error, not only continuing to push his “Islamic Antichrist” deception, but sharply criticising the truth regarding the Roman Catholic institution’s connections to ancient Babylon, and arrogantly mocking and belittling Alexander Hislop, the nineteenth-century author of The Two Babylons (in which he proves that the Papal system is the true “Mystery Babylon” of the New Testament period); a man whose research so far exceeds that of Richardson as to make the latter appear to be a pygmy standing in the shadow of a giant.
“Therefore shall her plagues come in one day, death, and mourning, and famine;
and she shall be utterly burned with fire:
for strong is the Lord God who judgeth her.”
ISIS Threatens Rome with Conquest and Slaughter
In February 2015 an extraordinary threat was made by the bloodthirsty Islamic terrorist outfit known as ISIS (the Islamic State of Iraq and Syria, now going simply by the name of Islamic State). In a very short space of time, this evil, murderous organisation has spread across a vast swathe of territory, massacring people along the way in extremely brutal and sadistic ways. It is intent on establishing an Islamic state across the entire region. And having expanded into Libya in North Africa, and having taken control of Benghazi, Libya’s second city, it is now just south of Italy, which with 2.2 million Muslims has the fourth-largest Muslim population in Europe. The Italian island of Lampedusa is a mere 109 miles away from Libya, and Sicily is just 300 miles away.
The threat, made in an online video, was this: “Today we are south of Rome. We will conquer Rome, by Allah’s permission”. Continue reading
