Babylon Rising - Part Six - London as Zion

Joseph Herrin (07-06-2012)

This post picks up where Part Five of Babylon Rising left off. In that post I had shared that Satan is positioning London to be his capital city. The capital of Satan’s kingdom is Babylon, but Satan in his great deceit is calling it Zion. This is evident from the logo created to mark the 2012 Olympics hosted by the city of London.

The logo chosen by the London Olympics organizing committee has been criticized for being ugly, but it was designed in this fashion for a purpose. A rearrangement of the figures spells out the name Zion.

Note especially the name “London” superimposed over the “Z” in Zion. The connection of London being set forth as Zion is clear. Even as Satan figures himself as the god of this world, he has borrowed the name of the city of Yahweh to use for his own corrupt and wicked world government.

A couple weeks ago I was sent a link to a video that I found quite interesting. What I want to draw your attention to is the end of the video that includes an excerpt from the royal wedding recently held in London for Prince William and Kate Middleton. What is remarkable is the song sung by the royal family and the elite guests gathered to celebrate the occasion. The hymn is titled “Jerusalem” and has been suggested as a national anthem for England. The lyrics of the song were written by William Blake, who was a Freemason and Illuminist. Before you watch the video, let me share the lyrics of this song with you.

The poem begins by questioning whether the false legend of Christ visiting England as a youth is actually true. It then proceeds to describe the building of the New Jerusalem in England.

(Words by William Blake - circa 1808)

And did those feet in ancient time.
Walk upon England's mountains green:
And was the holy Lamb of God,
On England’s pleasant pastures seen!

And did the Countenance Divine,
Shine forth upon our clouded hills?
And was Jerusalem builded here,
Among these dark Satanic Mills?

Bring me my Bow of burning gold;
Bring me my Arrows of desire:
Bring me my Spear: O clouds unfold!
Bring me my Chariot of fire!

I will not cease from Mental Fight,
Nor shall my Sword sleep in my hand:
Till we have built Jerusalem,
In England’s green and pleasant Land
[End of Lyrics]

Even as Jerusalem is called “the city of God,” Zion is the highest hill in Jerusalem. It is the location where Christ appears among the overcomers. It is the seat of all rule and authority. What is being suggested by this song is that the seat of all rule and authority upon the earth will be established in England. Jerusalem will be built there. Elect men will rule the world from this terrestrial Zion.

As you watch the video also note the trees inside the cathedral where the song is sung. Groves of trees have from ancient times been associated with Baal worship. This should give the viewer some indication of the god who is being worshiped by the royal family and the elite gathered in London.

If you want to read more about the history of this anthem, you can find an article on Wikipedia at the following URL.

Some may sincerely ask, “What value is there in knowing such things?” I am reminded of the following words of Christ.

Matthew 24:15-22
“Therefore when you see the ABOMINATION OF DESOLATION which was spoken of through Daniel the prophet, standing in the holy place (let the reader understand), then those who are in Judea must flee to the mountains. Whoever is on the housetop must not go down to get the things out that are in his house. Whoever is in the field must not turn back to get his cloak. But woe to those who are pregnant and to those who are nursing babies in those days! But pray that your flight will not be in the winter, or on a Sabbath. For then there will be a great tribulation, such as has not occurred since the beginning of the world until now, nor ever will. Unless those days had been cut short, no life would have been saved; but for the sake of the elect those days will be cut short.”

Why did Yahshua speak the words recorded here? Did He not wish for His disciples to be discerning of the days they lived in, and to act wisely when they observed that great evil was at hand? Even so, in this hour we are observing many signs of the impending elevation of Satan’s false kingdom over this earth. Babylon is rising. The saints of God need to walk wisely in this hour, for the days are evil.

Satan is an usurper. He seeks to elevate his throne above that of Yahweh. He would have all men to worship him, and the Scriptures reveal that he will nearly realize this desire in the end of the age.

Revelation 13:3-4
And the whole earth was amazed and followed after the beast; they worshiped the dragon because he gave his authority to the beast; and they worshiped the beast, saying, "Who is like the beast, and who is able to wage war with him?"

In the previous post in this series I included numerous images that reveal that the inner city of London is guarded at every entrance by images of dragons. These “Boundary Dragons” indicate who rules in this place.

If you did not read the previous post, or would like to review it again, you can find it here:

I will repeat one more image from the former post as it ties directly into what I will share next. The following picture shows the Coat of Arms for the City of London Corporation.

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.

I would share now a remarkable testimony that occurred yesterday that further relates to dragons and the ascension of Satan’s visible world kingdom. You may have seen the news regarding a new tower in London that was “inaugurated” yesterday. It is the tallest building in all of Europe and you can be certain that it is filled with occult symbolism and meaning. The building is called “The Shard.”

The Shard

This pyramid shaped building has just been opened to the public. One of the requirements for its construction is that the building had to be completed BEFORE the 2012 Olympics began. The reason for this will be made known in a moment.

To understand what The Shard represents, one can look to one of the chief instruments Satan has used in this past generation to introduce mankind to the worship of Satan. It is the boardgame called Dungeons and Dragons. An entire industry has arisen alongside this gaming industry which includes numerous books that describe the worlds found in Dungeons and Dragons. R.A. Salvatore has sold over 15 million books, many of which are related to this fantasy role playing game. Among these books are the novels The Crystal Shard, Passage to Dawn, The Silent Blade, and Servant of the Shard. All of these novels take as a central element a relic called Crenshinibon, also known as “The Shard.” A wikipedia entry on this item includes the following information.

Crenshinibon is an evil, sentient artifact in the Forgotten Realms setting based on the Dungeons & Dragons fantasy role-playing game....

Crenshinibon is a vile relic of immense power, a crystal shard that draws its magical energy from the light of the sun. Crenshinibon is a sentient artifact, and it possesses a never-ending hunger for power and glory at whatever cost; therefore, Crenshinibon is not a reasoning being. It always desires a powerful wielder, usually a corruptible magic-user of some sort, and greatly enhances that wielder’s powers. The Crystal Shard also insidiously manipulates its wielder and would readily abandon him or her for someone more capable of furthering its goals of ultimate conquest. The relic can lure in thousands of evil-intentioned beings with its magical call, creating a grand army for its wielder and so-called master.

Perhaps Crenshinibon's most magnificent ability is its power to create an enormous crystalline tower, known as Cryshal-Tirith (Elvish, literally meaning crystal tower). In order to create the tower, Crenshinibon first creates an exact duplicate of itself, a square-sided crystal that sometimes glows a green light.

The wielder then places the copy of the shard on the ground and recites the words ibssum dal abdur. The duplicate crystal expands, growing into the crystalline tower, still an exact image of Crenshinibon, only now of mammoth proportions...

The nature of the artifact is to attain power to its greatest level. This desire transcends the normally established boundaries of what is right and what is wrong.

The Shard's primary attack is on the ego, collecting slaves with promises of greatness and riches.

This remarkable description of The Shard reveals the spirit not only of Satan, but of those men and women who have yoked themselves to his service in order that they might obtain greatness and riches in this world. Such men and women are truly blind, for they do not perceive the treachery of serving a being that comes only “to kill, steal and destroy.” Satan has no love for mankind, nor does he have regard for those who serve him. If a man or woman is no longer useful, he “would readily abandon him or her for someone more capable of furthering [his] goals of ultimate conquest.”

The image of The Shard illuminated with green lights above is not part of the Wikipedia article. It was taken from yesterday’s inauguration ceremony for The Shard in London. Symbolically, and quite unusually, The Shard’s inauguration took place at night, when all was dark in London.

John 11:9-10
Yahshua answered, "Are there not twelve hours in the day? If anyone walks in the day, he does not stumble, because he sees the light of this world. But if anyone walks in the night, he stumbles, because the light is not in him."

Luke 22:52-53
Then Yahshua said to the chief priests and officers of the temple and elders who had come against Him, "Have you come out with swords and clubs as you would against a robber? While I was with you daily in the temple, you did not lay hands on Me; but this hour and the power of darkness are yours."

A malevolent force is arising in the world that is at enmity with the true Light of the world. Days of great persecution for the disciples of Christ are near at hand. The powers of darkness are arising.

In the Wikipedia article cited above it is noted that The Shard would at times emit a green light. The planners of the inauguration for this great tower in London chose to employ the use of green laser lights to mark the occasion. This correlation is not by chance. The building that now sits in London shares the same malevolent spirit as the Crystal Shard that could transform itself into a tower from the Dungeons and Dragons books and games. Following is a video of the inauguration of this building.

Video Link:

You may note the music played by the London Philharmonic Orchestra during this inauguration as the green laser lights shone across London. The songs were similarly chosen to convey a message. The songs played were Aaron Copland’s Fanfare for the Common Man and Igor Stravinsky’s Firebird.

In these two songs we have linked together the common man and the worship of the Firebird, which is a figure of the mythical Phoenix. Satan is this Firebird. He was cast to the earth where he was consumed by fire, but has arisen from the ashes reborn to ascend to the heavens again.

Ezekiel 28:18
“By the multitude of your iniquities, in the unrighteousness of your trade you profaned your sanctuaries. Therefore I have brought fire from the midst of you; It has consumed you, and I have turned you to ashes on the earth in the eyes of all who see you.”

Igor Stravinsky was a Russian composer familiar with the folklore of his people. Wikipedia has the following to say about the Firebird.

In Slavic folklore, the Firebird is a magical glowing bird from a faraway land, which is both a blessing and a bringer of doom to its captor.

The Firebird is described as a large bird with majestic plumage that glows brightly emitting red, orange, and yellow light, like a bonfire that is just past the turbulent flame. The feathers do not cease glowing if removed, and one feather can light a large room if not concealed. In later iconography, the form of the Firebird is usually that of a smallish fire-colored peacock, complete with a crest on its head and tail feathers with glowing "eyes."

Note once more the relationship to what was previously described about Crenshinibon. Here is a coveted being sought after for the blessings it can bring, But like the Shard, it is treacherous. It brings doom to those who seek to wield it. In the video of the inauguration of The Shard the colors displayed on the outside of the building changed hues even as the Firebird emitted multi-colored lights.

One item that struck me as odd, and symbolic, is that the opening of this building was not described as a “Dedication” ceremony as is typical of buildings. Rather, it was described as an “Inauguration.” The word “Inauguration” is more closely associated with people than with objects. Yet, as we have read, The Shard was regarded not as an inanimate object, but as “a sentient artifact.” Sentient means “having the power of perception; conscious.” Here in London is a building that is being inaugurated as if it is a conscious entity.

Let us return to the function of this “sentient artifact.” We read previously the following words.

The relic can lure in thousands of evil-intentioned beings with its magical call, creating a grand army for its wielder and so-called master.

Here then is the emblematic purpose of this tower in London, and the reason that it needed to be completed prior to the opening of the 2012 London Olympics. It is endowed with a spiritual power to summon thousands of evil-intentioned beings. Whether these be fallen angels and demons, or wicked men and women, they are being called to the rising of Satan’s kingdom in this earth.

As was mentioned in Part Five of this series, the opening ceremonies for the XXX Olympiad in London will take place on Tisha B’Av (July 27th). This has been a date of great tragedy for the people of God throughout the ages. This coming Olympics will surely usher in a time of great evil for the people of God.

Ephesians 5:15-16
Therefore be careful how you walk, not as unwise men but as wise, making the most of your time, because the days are evil.

Hi Josepth. My name is Mark Stewart even though my screen name is anon11. I am stating my name because of your reponse in the liberty bell blog.

I live not too far from the shard and can see it from where I live even though it outer shell is complete it still looks like an uncapped elongated pyramid.

I recently had an office relocation close to the city of london and would see the silver dragons daily and its no joke, the place is packed with occult symbols and statues of greco-roman gods usually fully naked.

The uk has been experiencing freak weathet for the last 2 months mainly consisting of a months rain in a sinle day leading to frequent flash floods and an extremly unusual tornado which hardly ever occur on these shores.

Aswell as hosting yhe pagan olympic games the church of england is currently deciding to allow women bishops, also the question of gay marraige is being debated by the government.

Hello Mark,

Thank you for introducing yourself. Thank you also for sharing the comments about the things you are observing in London. Those actions you mentioned being under consideration by the Anglican Church are bound to be approved. This will set the seal to the fact that this is not Christ Yahshua's church. He is not the head of it. It is guided by Satanic principles.

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

Brother Joseph,

Your posts are timely and informative,as always. It's good that the people of God be aware of the flow of events in God's plan. But let us never forget: Satan is an instrument in Father's hands; Satan acts only within the boundries set by Father; Satan cannot go beyond what he's allowed to do; all that Satan is doing serves the ultimate purpose that Father is working out in accordance with the counsel of His will.
We are not promised health,wealth,success and material possessions in this age. Our blessings are spiritual. To know God and understand His ultimate intention along with the realization that He is bringing it about(right on schedule)is awesome.
On these things we should meditate.

Grace be with you. ARisingSon

thank you. very interesting symbolism. i find it interesting that according to Daniel 7, "[4] The first was like a lion and had eagles' wings. Then as I looked its wings were plucked off, and it was lifted up from the ground and made to stand upon two feet like a man; and the mind of a man was given to it." Some believe the lion here prophetically represents the UK and eagles wings being plucked off represents the birth of the USA. the lion was given the mind of man now--what ever the lion attempts to do is going to be fraught with the rebellion of man. Just a thought...
also the green lasers sound like a reference to green ecology which they are very into (which is occult at its roots) and green is a symbol of Islam which they given themselves over to as a nation and are being overtaken by the spirit of mohammed. Arnie

Joseph Herrin said...

Hello Arnie,
Thank you for the comments. I have also considered the verse you cited from Daniel about the lion and the eagle's wings. One possible understanding of this is that the eagle's wings being plucked speaks of America falling and then England ascending as the lion is stated to stand up afterwards. I wrote of this in a post after the U.S. Airways jet crashed in the Hudson River. They had to remove the wings of the plane and transport it across the ground as it could no longer be flown.

Unknown said...

The body of the beast is said to be a lion and not an eagle. it seems that the lion is its primary designation...? (it seems the wings are discarded and are no longer important to this parable and if so and we are the eagle, then we are discarded and not part of the end time empires. regardless of the wings, the lion has a mind of the man and is given by God the ability to do what is not natural to the lion—to be able to walk on only two legs. the mind of man speaks of reason which could also imply rebellion. not really sure where that goes. the lion, the bear, the leopard and the mysterious 4th beast are all alive at the same time and continues for a while after the 4th beast is destroyed. are these empires all right now? if so, does this mean that the lion, leopard, bear are different and not part of the 4th beast? yeah, not sure where this goes but its interesting.

Good morning Joseph,

This was something unexpected about the shard.

The Shard is joint-owned by the state of Qatar, and the country's prime minister Hamad Bin Jassim Bin Jabr Al-Thani.

What do you think about this foreign ownership, Joseph?

Yours in Yahshua, Susan

Joseph Herrin said...

Dear Sister Shoshannah,

Someone else had written to comment on Muslim ownership of the Shard and what that meant. I shared with them the following:

I believe the investment by Qatar has far more to do with the British and American monopoly over the oil industry than it has to do with religion. I think the media attention on the intrusion of Islam into Western society is more myth than reality. It is intended to stir up sectional strife leading to civil chaos. The fears of Western Europe or America becoming predominantly Muslim I believe are overhyped.

Consider that Europe is only nominally Christian. It is reported that less than 5% of Europeans attend church services. The truth is, the god of Western culture is materialism (mammon). I see it as a very remote possibility that tens of millions of women in the U.S. and European countries will turn aside from their liberation, sensual conduct, and materialistic lifestyles and embrace the very paternalistic views of Islam. Islam will be a very hard sell for nations who are steeped in images of Madonna, Miley Cyrus, Lady Gaga, and the like. It is not Christianity that Islam will have to overcome, for Christianity is little more than a cultural relic in Europe. It is a liberal, secular, materialistic mindset that is so deeply ingrained that trying to merge it with the male dominated, strict Sharia teachings of Islam would be like trying to mix oil and water.

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