Olympic Torch & Prostitute of Babylon

Olympic Torch & Prostitute of Babylon

Links:  | CNN | AP |
March 25 (Day 85, Eye):  The Olympic torch was lit in the ruins of ancient Olympia, Greece in a ceremony that featured the High Priestess of Apollo and prayer to the Sun god.   Thalia Prokopiou, the Greek actress who played the role of the High Priestess, lit the silver torch by placing it inside a burnished-steel concave mirror.  The Sun lit the torch.  She prayed to Apollo, "Apollo god of the Sun and the idea of light, send your rays and light the sacred torch for the hospitable city of Athens."  Other women acting as priestesses danced in a circle around priestesses waving olive branches.  This was Day 85, for an eye.  The Sun represents an eye in the sky.

The ceremony was held at an altar to Hera near the Temple of Hera in ancient Olympia, where the games were first held in 776 BC.  The flame will burn at the Olympic Games in Athens August 13-29.   The Olympic games were held every four years until the Roman Emperor Theodosius, who was a Christian, abolished them in 393 AD because they were pagan.  The games were revived in Athens in 1896.  The torch relay was first introduced in Berlin in 1936, where it heralded the outbreak of World War II.  Satan's throne, the altar of Zeus (Revelation 2:13), was also in Berlin at the time in the Berlin Museum.

Ancient Greece where the Olympic games began was the prostitute capital of the world.  The world's most famous and richest prostitutes lived in Greece.  The Greek temple prostitutes surpassed even the prostitutes of Babylon in wealth.  The High Priestess of Hera was the Prostitute of Babylon in Greece just as the High Priestess of Ishtar, or Inanna, was the Prostitute of Babylon in ancient Babylon.  Hera, who was the wife of Zeus in Greek mythology, was Satan as the goddess of love.  So, the woman who portrayed the High Priestess today was also portraying herself as the Prostitute of Babylon.  The other priestesses represented temple prostitutes.

The temple prostitutes danced in circles to represent the Sun in honor of the Sun god.  The Sun god represents Satan as light and purifying fire, which is a lie because the Lord Jesus Christ is the Light of the world - not Satan who is portrayed as an angel of light.  The olive branches that the women waved were a Satanic counterfeit symbol for Christ, the Branch (Isaiah 4:2; 11:1; Jeremiah 23:5; 33:15; Zechariah 3:8; 6:12).

Temple prostitutes were prohibited by the Mosaic Law.

Deuteronomy 23:17-18
17  “None of the daughters of Israel shall be a temple prostitute, nor shall any of the sons of Israel be a temple prostitute.  18  “You shall not bring the wages of a prostitute or the money of a dog into the house of the LORD your God because of any vow, for even both are an abomination to the LORD your God.
The word for the female "temple prostitute" is the Hebrew hv*d@q+ (qedeshah) and for the male is the Hebrew vd@q+ (qedesh).  The Hebrew root vdq (qdsh) means sacred, set apart, consecrated.  Temple prostitutes were not sacred, but they were set apart, or dedicated, to serve Satan.   Temple prostitutes donated their earnings from prostitution to the temples of the gods, but Israelites were prohibited from donating the "wages of a prostitute or the money of a dog" to the Tabernacle, or Temple, of God.  The word "prostitute" in verse 18 is the Hebrew hn*oz (zonah), which is the normal word for prostitute, or harlot.  "Dog" was slang for a male homosexual prostitute.  They were called dogs because homosexuals copulate from the rear like animals.

Arrow, SPC Storm Report, 3-24-04

Weather

One tornado was reported in the USA.  It was 1 mile east of Johnstown, Colorado, at 40 N., for maximum divine discipline, and 104 W., for weakness.  There were at least 6 hail and 2 wind damage reports.

The image on the SPC Storm graphic portrayed a bow with an arrow fired at New York City.  The arrow went from Colorado through Iowa to New York.

The weather map over the USA today featured weather elephants over the west coast and from the Great Lakes through Texas. An elephant symbolizes a demon Commander, such as Baal.

Conclusion

The tornado was near Johnstown, Colorado, at 40 N., for maximum divine discipline, and 104 W., for weakness. This number, 4, also corresponds to the woman as the weaker vessel and to the year, 2004.  The SPC Storm graphic featured a bow with an arrow fired at New York City.  The arrow went from Colorado through Iowa to New York.  Colorado is the region of the summits and corresponds to the US summits in the Middle East peace process.  The September 11th Commission has been holding high level hearings the last two days.  The arrow went to New York City, where planes used as arrows struck the World Trade Center.  The arrow went through Iowa because that is where Presidential candidate, John Kerry rose to fame.  It is a sign that Kerry will capitalize on Bush's failure on Sept. 11th.

The Olympic torch was lit in Athens with a ceremony of idolatry that portrayed the High Priestess of Hera as the Prostitute of Babylon.  In 2004, for weakness and the woman as the weaker vessel, prostitutes will be weak.  They will be judged (or raped) (Revelation 17:16), especially by the European Union.  So, the Prostitute of Babylon at the Olympics, in businesses, or government agencies can expect to have a rough year.

One of the last world leaders to have enough mental ability or morals to care about Olympic prostitution was the Roman Emperor Theodosius I. (379-395), who canceled the pagan Olympic games in 393 AD.  He was a Christian, who subscribed to the Nicene creed and brought the triumph of orthodoxy.  In 380, he issued an edict that required all his subjects to confess the orthodox faith and threatened the heretics with punishment.  The orthodox faith of the Nicene creed established Jesus Christ as of like
essence with the Father, which was wrong.  Jesus Christ is of the same essence as the Father.  But this was close.  And there does not appear to be any leader today who even sees the issues like Theodosius.

The reason for the prostitutes and prayers to the Sun god at the Olympics was so that demons can empower the athletes.  The torch lighting ceremony was idolatry.  It was evil.  The first torch relay ceremony was for the Berlin Olympics in 1936, which heralded World War II.

Bible Doctrine

This is Bible Doctrine.  The Prostitute of Babylon was symbolized today in the ceremony of lighting the Olympic torch.  The ceremony was idolatry, and it was evil.
