Mystery Babylon and the Tower of Babel
The name, Mystery Babylon carries with it a sense of wonderment and intrigue. What is the “mystery” of Mystery Babylon? Babylon was an ancient city located some miles from Baghdad in modern Iraq. It later became an extensive empire that controlled the Middle East and beyond, but, what is this “Mystery Babylon”?

Thus, it was known as mystery religion. This religion was arranged in a pyramidal design with the “Pontifex Maximus” (Hislop) as the top. The next level included other “pontiffs”. Then, down the pyramid were various clergy--including “priests”-- and finally the common people. The common people were never allowed to understand what the priests knew unless they went through the training to become a priest. This pyramidal system can be found in the structure of the Catholics, Masons, and other “Mystery” organizations.
|Confessionals were around in ancient Babylon.|
Semiramis and her people started them in order to
gain control over the people. We need to repent from
sin and not just confess it to someone.

This belongs to Neptune, the Roman god.
This is only found in pagan circles.
You cannot find anything like this
being promoted in the Bible.

Some similarities to how Christmas is celebrated today include candles, the yule log in the hearth, a Christmas tree, wreaths, red and green colors, and the date (25 of December). The burning yule log symbolized the dying god (Nimrod / Baal) before he was to rise from the dead reincarnated in the form of his son, Tammuz. The standing Christmas tree symbolized this reincarnation and coming back to life (Hislop).

God loves us so much that He sent His Only Begotten Son, Jesus Christ, to die for our sins and shed His precious blood to pay for all of these sins (John 3:16 and 1 Corinthians. 15:3-4). And He rose from the grave on the third day (1 Cor. 15:4).
The Bible says this about Jesus and Salvation:
John 14:6 (bold added)
“Jesus saith unto him, I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me.”
1 Timothy 2:5 (bold added)
“For there is one God, and one mediator between God and men, the man Christ Jesus;”
Acts 4:12 (bold added)
“Neither is there salvation in any other: for there is none other name under heaven given among men, whereby we must be saved.”
HOW TO GET SAVED and KNOW GOD:
- 1. If you repent (turn away) from your sins (Acts 3:19),
- 2. and believe and confess aloud that Christ has paid for your sins with his precious blood and has risen from the dead (Romans 10:9-10),
- 3. and have made Him your Lord and Savior (again Romans 10:9-10) you are saved.
- 4. Now seek God with all your heart. Seek to know Him and you will (Jeremiah 29:13).
John 17:3 says: "And this is life eternal, that they might know thee the only true God, and Jesus Christ, whom thou hast sent."
