Question by ‘little’ book,open(Rev10): What would make anyone think ‘Mystery’ Babylon is a church, or Rome, or the RCC?
Babylon of old was a very specific dominion of the ancient world, its rise and fall are covered much in both the N.T. and the O.T..

As history repeats itself[Ecc1:9 & 3:15] so also will this ‘Mystery’ Babylon of the last days.

Babylon and the Empire of Rome are juxtaposed in so many ways it is deliberate.
How could one be confused with the other?

The 7 hills on which the woman sits[Rev17:9] are the [6+1] continents of the world.
America had[at one time] a military base on each.
Jesus is the most reliable resource out there, besides the Lord God, and they speak plainly[Dt27:8, Nu12:8, Hbk2:2, Pro8:9]. They never refer to Babylon as Rome, are They not reliable?
At the no so tremendous – the bible CLEARLY says the end of the world is at the end of Revelation20:11:15 right after the 1000 year reign of Christ. Repeat someone else’s stupidity shows your lack of depth of knowledge on the subject. Have fun being oblivious!

Will you starve to death today for everlasting life?
or
For a morsel of bread sell your soul to the everlasting lake of fire?
Tremendoid – I’d rather you find truth in the subject

Mt24:36 But of that DAY and HOUR knoweth no man… What DAY and what HOUR? Christ is not speaking of the end of the world but of the DAY and the HOUR of His coming[v.27] to reign for 1000 years at the end of the age of sin and tribulation which lasts for 6000 years as stated in the Revelation of Jesus Christ chapter 20 and as there is no deceit from the mouth of Christ so then Christ is speaking only of the DAY and the HOUR of His return that cannot be known by anyone until it happens and this is truth. As for the other ‘times’[hrs, days, weeks, years] of the end are they not clearly explained to us by Christ Himself in The Revelation?

And there is what men think verses what God says. God calls Babylon a ‘nation’ a ‘land’, NEVER a church!
Oh! and I would recall the t’sd I gave too as the additional comments by you lead to a greater understanding on your part

this ‘supposed Christian’ – not at all uncalled for…
ESPECIALLY if you desire to show yourself a complete hypocrite

The Religion of Ancient Rome

A Selection from CHAPTER II:THE ‘ANTECEDENTS’ OF ROMAN RELIGIONIn every early religion there will of course be found, apart from external influence, traces of its own internal development, of stages by which it must have advanced from a mass of vague and primitive belief and custom to the organised worship of a civilised community. The religion of Rome is no exception to this rule; we can detect in its later practice evidences of primitive notions and habits which it had in common with other sem

Question by Stella: Historical Fiction Set in Ancient Rome – Any Recommendations?
I’ve already read Steven Saylor’s entire series so far of Gordianus the Finder, and Lindsey Davis’ entire Marcus Didius Falco mysteries; I loved both these series. I’m looking for another series along these lines.

They don’t have to be mysteries, but I’m not interested in anything that’s heavily battle or military-oriented. I’m more interested in great characters and storylines in the setting of ancient Rome (Pagan eras only please).

Eh, I dunno about the era, but Nobody’s Princess was kinda cute. It’s set in Sparta. Sorry, I suck at history and stuff. It’s about Helen of Sparta as a kid.

Question by RG: If by ‘Mystery Babylon’ is to be understood Ancient Rome…?
Why then does the city of Rome still exist, when the word of prophecy clearly states that when Rome falls there will be No more city standing, all the world will know it and will be amazed at its sudden and utter devastation?
The characteristics ascribed to the Babylon of the book of REVELATIONS fit better the city of Rome than any other city.
The given traits do not fit Baghdad or Iraq.
So the Prophecy isnt Fully complete yet? Is There still something left in Rome that needs to be fullfilled? Maybe the ’2nd Beast’?

The characteristics ascribed to the Babylon OF REVELATION fit better the city of Rome than any other city. (1) Rules over the kings of the earth (17:18). (2) Corrupts the nations (17:2; 18:3; 19:2). (3) Sits upon seven mountains (17:9). Rome sits upon seven hills. (4) Center of the world’s merchandise (18:3,11-13). (5) Persecutes the saints (17:6). These traits do not fit Baghdad or Iraq.

Question by RGrz: Roman Catholics: If by ‘Mystery Babylon’ is to be understood ancient Rome…?
If by ‘Mystery Babylon’ is to be understood ancient Rome, and if the Church of Rome claims to be the True Church left unharmed in Rome, why on earth does infallible Scripture predict that upon Rome’s fall the sounds of Silence echo where once the True Gospel was proclaimed and voices with instruments were raised in praise to the true God?
The characteristics ascribed to the Babylon of the book of REVELATIONS fit better the city of Rome than any other city.
These traits do Not fit Baghdad or Iraq.
The United States does Not “sit on Seven hills”

Question by pikoinko: Could you tell me about the augury in ancient Rome?
I have read a description that the augurs in ancient rome were consulted three times. Does it mean that the augury was done three times for each matter ? As far as I know, one of the famous auguries was that of Romulus and Remus in order to decide which should be the founder, and Remus saw six birds and Romulus saw twelve birds. Thank you for your information.
I wonder if there is any information about the times that the augures were consulted. But, does such a question make no sense?

Best answer:

Answer by gatita_63109
Augury is an ancient form of divination. The practice was performed in ancient Rome by priests called augurs. It entailed the interpretation of auspices, that is the movement of birds and/or the movement of animals.

Also included in this form of divination was the interpretation of the significance of thunder and lightening. Those signs on the augur’s left or east side denoted a favorable outcome, while those on the right pointed to an ill-omen.

The Augur (pl: augures) was a priest and official in the classical world, especially ancient Rome. His main role was to interpret the will of the gods by studying the flight of the birds (flying in groups/alone, what noises they make as they fly, direction of flight and what kind of birds they are), known as “taking the auspices.” The ceremony and function of the augur was central to any major undertaking in Roman society–public or private–including matters of war, commerce, and religion.

Amongst the most remarkable of natural occurrences must be included many of the phenomena connected with the behaviour of birds. Undoubtedly numerous species of birds are susceptible to atmospheric changes (of an electrical and barometric nature) too slight to be observed by man’s unaided senses; thus only is to be explained the phenomenon of migration and also the many other peculiarities in the behaviour of birds whereby approaching changes in the weather may be foretold. Probably, also, this fact has much to do with the extraordinary homing instinct of pigeons.
