Babylon Rising - Part Five Tisha B’Av and Rise of the Dragon

Joseph Herrin (02-22-2012)

When Av comes in, gladness must be diminished.” [Mishnah, Taanith 4:6]

Roman General Titus after the Sacking of Jerusalem

Note: The following information is presented that Christians might understand the day in which they live and the events that must shortly take place.

There is no more calamitous date for the people of God than Tisha B’Av, the 9th day of the Hebrew month of Av. Jewish history records the following events befalling the people of Yahweh on this date:

1312 B.C.: The spies returned from looking over the land of Canaan. Ten of the spies gave out an evil report to the children of Israel as they spoke of fortified cities and giants in the land. The people’s hearts rebelled against Yahweh and he declared judgment upon them. All those above the age of twenty would die in the wilderness. They would not be permitted to enter the promised land of their inheritance.

421 B.C.: The Temple Solomon built was destroyed by the Babylonians under the rule of Nebuchadnezzar. For many years the prophet Jeremiah had called the nation to repentance, but they would not repent. Because they served other gods and acted wickedly, Yahweh gave them into the hands of their enemies. The 9th of Av sealed this judgment as the Temple was destroyed.

70 A.D.: The Second Temple was destroyed by the Romans under the command of Titus on the 9th of Av. Over two million Jews were slain and one million deported throughout the Roman Empire. More than 100,000 were sold as slaves, fulfilling the words of Yahshua.

Matthew 24:1-2
Then Yahshua went out and departed from the temple, and His disciples came up to show Him the buildings of the temple. And Yahshua said to them, "Do you not see all these things? Assuredly, I say to you, not one stone shall be left here upon another, that shall not be thrown down."

Luke 19:43-44
“For days will come upon you when your enemies will build an embankment around you, surround you and close you in on every side, and level you, and your children within you, to the ground; and they will not leave in you one stone upon another, because you did not know the time of your visitation.”

132 A.D.: A further rebellion of the Jews called the Bar Kochba Revolt is crushed. 100,000 Jews die.

133 A.D.: To put an end to Jewish rebellion Rome levels Jerusalem and plows the ground with salt on the 9th of Av. This fulfills the prophecy of Micah:

Micah 3:9-12
Now hear this, you heads of the house of Jacob and rulers of the house of Israel, who abhor justice and pervert all equity, who build up Zion with bloodshed and Jerusalem with iniquity: Her rulers judge for a bribe, her priests teach for pay, and her prophets divine for money. Yet they lean on Yahweh, and say, "Is not Yahweh among us? No harm can come upon us." Therefore because of you Zion shall be plowed like a field, Jerusalem shall become heaps of ruins, and the mountain of the temple like the bare hills of the forest.

On the former site of Jerusalem the Roman city called Aelia Capitolina is built by the Emperor Hadrian. Hadrian's new plans included temples to the major regional deities, and certain Roman gods, in particular Jupiter Capitolinus. Hadrian also built a large temple to the goddess Venus, which later became the Church of the Holy Sepulchre.

1095 A.D.: Pope Urban II declares the first crusade on the 9th of Av in this year. 10,000 Jews are killed in the first month of the crusade. The crusades totally obliterate many Jewish communities in France and Germany.

1290 A.D.: On the 9th of Av King Edward I expels all Jews from England. Jews do not regain the right of settlement until the year 1657.

1492 A.D.: On this date Spain expels all Jews. Catholic monarchs Ferdinand II and Isabella (Jezebel) I purge Spain of all non-Catholics in what has become known as the Spanish Inquisition.

These are just some of the events that occurred on Tisha B’Av throughout history that have resulted in great suffering and loss for the people of God. A cohesive theme runs through these events. Due to the rebellion of God’s people, their idolatry, violence, the corruption of religious leaders and prophets, the refusal of God’s people to have Yahshua rule over them, they were given over to judgment. Repeatedly, Babylon is seen to be triumphing over Zion. Because God’s people had turned to mixture and confusion, not walking as a holy people before Him, Yahweh gave them into the hands of political Babylon (Nebuchadnezzar, Rome) and religious Babylon (Roman Catholic Church). Babylon has repeatedly been the scourge of Yahweh’s people.

2012 A.D.: On the 9th of Av 2012 (July 27th) the opening ceremony for the XXX Olympiad will be held in London. This date will once more mark the triumph of Babylon over Zion. See the article Babylon Rising - Part Three). Note that both the Hebrew and Gregorian calendar dates are marked by the number 9. July 27th is (9+9+9). The number 9 in the Scriptures signifies judgment. E.W. Bullinger writes in the book Number in Scripture the following:

It is the last of the digits, and thus marks the end; and is significant of the conclusion of a matter.

It is akin to the number six, six being the sum of its factors (3x3=9, and 3+3=6), and is thus significant of the end of man, and the summation of all man's works. Nine is, therefore,


for judgment is committed unto Jesus as "the Son of man" (John 5:27; Acts 17:31). It marks the completeness, the end and issue of all things as to man—the judgment of man and all his works...

The gematria of the word "Dan," which means a judge, is 54 (9x6).

"th orgh mou" (tee orgee mou), my wrath, = 999 (Heb 3:11).

The Scriptures declare that at the end of the age will come a day of wrath.

Isaiah 13:6-9
Wail, for the day of Yahweh is at hand! It will come as destruction from the Almighty. Therefore all hands will be limp, every man's heart will melt, and they will be afraid. Pangs and sorrows will take hold of them; They will be in pain as a woman in childbirth; They will be amazed at one another; Their faces will be like flames. Behold, the day of Yahweh comes, cruel, with both wrath and fierce anger, to lay the land desolate; and He will destroy its sinners from it.

The Bible further testifies that judgment must begin with God’s people.

I Peter 4:17-19
For the time has come for judgment to begin at the house of God; and if it begins with us first, what will be the end of those who do not obey the gospel of God? Now "If the righteous one is scarcely saved, where will the ungodly and the sinner appear?" Therefore let those who suffer according to the will of God commit their souls to Him in doing good, as to a faithful Creator.

History reveals that Yahweh will judge His people. When they turn aside to the idols and evil practices of the world, He will give them into the hands of brutal men skilled in destruction. Whether these men have been kings, emperors, or Popes, Yahweh has often used the rulers of Babylon as a scourge to His people. It will be so again in this late hour as Yahweh moves to purify a remnant in readiness for the marriage supper of the Lamb.

History tells us that the Roman Emperor Hadrian ploughed Jerusalem and had a Roman city ful of idols constructed in its place. The physical location of Zion was given a new name, Aelia Capitolina. As Satan begins to bring forth his kingdom into open view upon the earth, he will once again build a city in the place of Zion. In a strange twist on history, Satan will build his idolatrous city in a new location and call it Zion. The 2012 Olympics appear to mark a key date in this latest and most severe scourge to fall upon the people of God.

Notice the word “london” on the stylized number 2 on the logo for the 2012 Olympics. If I am correct, it is London that is to be proclaimed as Zion. London will become the base for Satan’s rule upon the earth.

London was founded by the Romans, originally being called Londinium. It has been a major metropolitan area for 2,000 years, and by most measures is the largest metropolitan area in England and in the European Union. It is the chief city of international banking, and has long been one of the three pillars of Satan’s Babylonian rule over the earth. The other two pillars being Vatican City in Rome, and Washington D.C. which was built on a plot of land formerly called Rome.

Rome, Maryland, was the original name of a community within Prince George's County, Maryland, which would eventually become Washington, District of Columbia. Specifically, Rome was the original community name of Capitol Hill, upon which the United States Capitol Building sits.

In 1663, the property that would become the Capitol's site was inscribed in the Maryland property records as “Rome,” its owner a man named Francis Pope. The southern boundary of this property was shaped by a river named for the river that runs through Rome, Italy, the Tiber.

The community was part of the ten mile square tract of land which would become the American capital Washington, D.C., and its owner, Daniel Carroll, transferred the community to the federal government after the amendment to the United States Constitution sanctioning the building of the new United States capital city was ratified.

Those who observe parables in the details of the creation will not think it coincidental that the Capital of America was established on a plot of land named Rome, that was owned by a man with the last name of Pope. Satan is a great schemer. Rome, Italy is the home of religious Babylon, and Washington D.C. has become the home of military Babylon. Most people today, including Christians, do not see beyond the hand of men to perceive that there is a malevolent spiritual force that is ruling upon the earth. The apostle Paul stated:

Ephesians 6:12
For we do not wrestle against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this age, against spiritual hosts of wickedness in the heavenly places.

Satan has had millennia to lay the plans for his conquest of the earth, preparing the world for the hour when he would set himself forth to be openly worshiped by mankind. The Scriptures declare that this event will occur at the end of the age, an hour we have now entered into.

Revelation 13:4
So they worshiped the dragon who gave authority to the beast...

It is necessary to provide a view of Satan’s world government that is not taught in the schools today, but which is nevertheless accurate and true. Satan has long ruled through deception. He is the great deceiver who deceives the entire world. Satan has centered his power on the earth in three hubs of power which are three cities. These cities form the unholy trinity of Satan’s rule upon earth. The first is religious Babylon. The second economic Babylon. The third is military Babylon.

These three cities are represented by three stars on the official flag of the District of Columbia.

Each of these cities are unique upon the earth in that they are located within sovereign nations, but the land they occupy is separate and distinct from the nations they are found in. They have their own laws, their own governments, and operate under different principles than the nations in which they are found. These cities are Vatican City in Rome, the City of London (not to be confused with Greater London), and Washington D.C..

Each of these cities bears the stamp of its Luciferian allegiance, having a large obelisk constructed in prominent view within their territories. The word Obelisk means “shaft of Bel (Baal).”

Obelisk - Vatican City - Rome

The Vatican Obelisk originated in Alexandria, Egypt where it stood in a forum. It was transferred to Rome by the Emperor Caligula in 37 A.D.. It was moved to the Vatican in 1586 at the order of Pope Sixtus V.

Cleopatra’s Needle, London

This Obelisk on the bank of the River Thames in London originated in Heliopolis, Egypt. Heliopolis means “city of the Sun.” Baal worship was synonymous with Sun worship.

Washington Monument, Washington D.C.

The Washington Monument is the largest obelisk in the world. It was designed and built under the auspices of American Freemasonry. These monuments mark the three power hubs of Satan’s kingdom upon earth. This year, 2012, America will spend more for her military than all other nations of the earth combined. Satan is truly centralizing his power upon the earth, and it is truly said, “Who is like the beast, and who is able to make war with him?” (Revelation 13:4).

In this post, I would focus specifically upon the City of London, for it is there that the XXX Olympiad will be held. London is the focus of Satan’s kingdom and its rising at this hour. Satan is called the Dragon, and he has set his image everywhere upon this city.

At the center of London is a one square mile territory called the City of London Corporation. This is Satan’s seat. It is the greatest center of international banking in the world. British media is also centered here on Fleet Street. All roads leading into the central territory known as the City of London are guarded by Boundary Dragons. Following is a map marking some of the dragon monuments in the inner City of London.

Boundary Dragons

Temple Bar Dragon

This tall, gothic, freestanding dragon, looms over the Temple Bar Memorial on Fleet Street before the Royal Courts of Justice, and serves as one of the boundary markers to the City of London. The name Temple Bar comes from a nearby Temple that was originally constructed by the Knights Templars, a Satanic organization with a very dark history.

Yet Another Boundary Dragon

The City of London is a Luciferian City. Following is an image of the coat of arms for the City.

City of London Corporation, Coat of Arms

The Latin phrase “domine dirige nos” is translated as “Lord Direct Us.” It should be obvious from the dragons that the lord being referred to is Lucifer, the great dragon of Scripture.

Revelation 12:9
So the great dragon was cast out, that serpent of old, called the Devil and Satan, who deceives the whole world; he was cast to the earth, and his angels were cast out with him.

In the post that related some details of the XXX Olympiad, it was mentioned that there is profound occult influence in the buildings being constructed for the games. From the Olympic Stadium with its pyramid shaped lighting, to the ArcelorMittal Orbit that took as its inspiration the Tower of Babel, Satan is declaring the rising of his kingdom in the earth.

These events are prophesied in Scriptures.

Revelation 13:5-10
And he was given a mouth speaking great things and blasphemies, and he was given authority to continue for forty-two months. Then he opened his mouth in blasphemy against God, to blaspheme His name, His tabernacle, and those who dwell in heaven. It was granted to him to make war with the saints and to overcome them. And authority was given him over every tribe, tongue, and nation. All who dwell on the earth will worship him, whose names have not been written in the Book of Life of the Lamb slain from the foundation of the world. If anyone has an ear, let him hear. He who leads into captivity shall go into captivity; he who kills with the sword must be killed with the sword. Here is the patience and the faith of the saints.

There is an evil kingdom rising. The adversary of the people of God is coming with great wrath. The coming persecution will refine, purge, and purify a remnant of the people of God. Many will fall away, having no depth of root. They will be as the stony ground upon which seed was sown. While there is yet time, press into Yahweh. If you have been lukewarm in your devotion, lazy in your pursuit of Christ, stir yourself up. The hour is very late. Babylon is rising. The dragon is coming to make war with the saints. Deception is being poured forth. It will sweep many away.

Daniel 12:10
Many shall be purified, made white, and refined, but the wicked shall do wickedly; and none of the wicked shall understand, but the wise shall understand.

I do not know what this coming Tisha B’Av will reveal. It is apparent, however, that Satan is declaring the hour of his kingdom’s open appearance. Darkness will cover the earth, and gross darkness the people.

The coming days will require much endurance. Those who endure to the end will be saved.

May you be blessed with peace and understanding in these days.

If you draw a line (on Google Earth) from the London Eye to the Olympic Stadium it passes through The City of London at 60.6 degrees. The distance from the Eye to the City is 1.3 nautical miles (13) or 2.4 kilometres (0.8+0.8+0.8).

Many church steeples are certainly obelisks... The Washington Monument cracked during the earthquake of August 2011 and was closed to the public .

The symbolism to those who have eyes to see and convey about these days are amazing.
Excellent work, are there enough hours in the day?
