History of Babel or Babylon and the Great Whore Religion

Babel, or Babylon, was built by Nimrod (Gen 10:8-10):

Gen 10:8-10 (Living)
8
One of the descendants of Cush was Nimrod, who became the first of the kings.  9 He was a mighty hunter, blessed of God, and his name became proverbial. People would speak of someone as being "like Nimrod--a mighty hunter, blessed of God."  10 The heart of his empire included Babel, Erech, Accad, and Calneh in the land of Shinar.

It was the seat of the first great apostasy. Here the "Babylonian cult" was invented. The city of Babylon continued to be the seat of Satan until the fall of the Babylonian and Medo-Persian Empires, when he shifted his capital to Pergamos in Asia Minor, where it was in John’s day (Rev 2:12,13):

Rev 2:12-13 (Living)
12
"Write this letter to the leader of the church in Pergamos: "This message is from him who wields the sharp and double-bladed sword.  13 I am fully aware that you live in the city where Satan's throne is, at the center of satanic worship; and yet you have remained loyal to me and refused to deny me even when Antipas, my faithful witness, was martyred among you by Satan's devotees.

Tammuz… Satan’s Counterfeit

Legend tells us that Nimrod had a wife, and it was she that founded the Babylonian mysteries.  Supposedly, she had a son born miraculously. This son was named Tammuz.  This son was a counterfeit fulfillment of the prophecy of the seed of the woman that was spoken unto the serpent (Satan) in Gen 3:15.  It is these legends and “mysteries” that grew into the Babylonian Religious Cult.  Certain religious practices that were a part of this cult later found their way into the Roman Catholic Church.   Some include recognizing both mother and child as God, and instituting an order of virgins.

Legend tells us that Tammuz was killed by an animal, but then came back to life. This Babylonian Religion is an abomination to God.  It is written,

Ezek 8:14,15.
THEN HE BROUGHT ME TO THE DOOR OF THE GATE OF THE LORD’S HOUSE WHICH WAS TOWARD THE NORTH; AND, BEHOLD,
THERE SAT WOMEN WEEPING FOR TAMMUZ. THEN SAID HE UNTO ME, HAST THOU SEEN THIS, O SON OF MAN? TURN THEE YET AGAIN, AND THOU SHALT SEE GREATER ABOMINATIONS THAN THESE…

Jere 45:17,20,22,23,26,27.
THE CHILDREN GATHER WOOD, AND THE FATHERS KINDLE THE FIRE, AND THE WOMEN KNEAD THEIR DOUGH, TO MAKE CAKES TO THE
QUEEN OF HEAVEN, AND TO POUR OUT DRINK OFFERINGS UNTO OTHER GODS, THAT THEY MAY PROVOKE ME TO ANGER.

Jere 7:18.
BUT WE WILL CERTAINLY DO WHATSOEVER THING GOETH FORTH OUT OF OUR OWN MOUTH, TO
BURN INCENSE UNTO THE QUEEN OF HEAVEN, AND TO POUR OUT DRINK OFFERINGS UNTO HER, AS WE HAVE DONE, WE, AND OUR FATHERS, OUR KINGS, AND OUR PRINCES, IN THE CITIES OF JUDAH, AND IN THE STREETS OF JERUSALEM...THEN JEREMIAH SAID...THE LORD COULD NO LONGER BEAR, BECAUSE OF THE EVIL OF YOUR DOINGS, AND BECAUSE OF THE ABOMINATIONS WHICH YE HAVE COMMITTED; THEREFORE IS YOUR LAND A DESOLATION, AND AN ASTONISHMENT, AND A CURSE, WITHOUT AN INHABITANT, AS AT THIS DAY. BECAUSE YE HAVE BURNED INCENSE, AND BECAUSE YE HAVE SINNED AGAINST THE LORD...BEHOLD, I HAVE SWORN BY MY GREAT NAME, SAITH THE LORD, THAT MY NAME SHALL NO MORE BE NAMED IN THE MOUTH OF ANY MAN OF JUDAH IN ALL THE LAND OF EGYPT…BEHOLD, I WILL WATCH OVER THEM FOR EVIL

How Rome became the “seat” of the Babylonian Religious Cult

When Attalus, the Pontiff and King of Pergamos died, in B.C. 133, he bequeathed the headship of the "Babylonian Priesthood" to Rome. When the Etruscans came to Italy from Lydia, (the region of Pergamos), they brought with them the Babylonian religion and rites. They set up a Pontiff who was head of the priesthood. Later the Romans accepted this Pontiff as their civil ruler. Julius Caesar was made Pontiff of the Etruscan Order in B.C. 74. In B.C. 63, he was made "Supreme Pontiff" of the "Babylonian Order," thus becoming heir to the rights and title of Attalus, Pontiff of Pergamos, who made Rome his heir by will.

Thus the first Roman Emperor became the head of the "Babylonian Priesthood," and Rome the successor of Babylon.

7 Hills

7 has been Rome's legendary number since ancient times:

7 hills, 7 kings, 7 septemviri or territorial magistrates, 7 epulones or priests at the banquets in honor of Jupiter, 7 cohorts of the wardens, 7 collossues of the gods on the hill. And 7 is the number of the legendary and modern Rome: from the SSeven churches of the church of Santa maria dei Sette Dolori, the area of Settebagni of the Via Salaria, the Settecamini on the via Tiburtina, Settevene on the Via Cassia, Settebassi close to Cinecittà and Sette Fratte.
