‘Oligarchic Imperialism Is The New Dominant World Religion’


The 2 Euro coin produced by Greece depicts the nymph. That coin clearly depicts a woman called Europa riding a Beast, that is supposed to represent Zeus.

Here is a version of the story of Europa from the San Diego State University website:

Zeus Lovers…One night Europa had a dream. In this dream two continents, which were in the forms of women were arguing over Europa. Asia maintained that since Europa had been born in Asia she belonged to it. The other continent, which was nameless, said that her birth was not important, that Zeus would give her to it. It was early morning, disturbed by the dream Europa did not go back to sleep. She summoned her companions, who were all daughters of nobility and of her age. It was a beautiful day and they went off gathering flowers by the sea. Zeus noticed this charming group, particularly Europa, who was the prettest [sic] of the maidens…Zeus appeared to the group as a white bull. A white bull more beautiful then any other…The bull laid down in front of Europa. She slid on to its back. Instantly, the bull charged off, plunging into the sea, and began to swim rapidly from the shore. Europa saw that a procession had joined them, Nereids riding dolphins, Triton blowing his horn, even Poseidon. From this she realized that the bull must be a god. She pleaded with him to pity her. Zeus spoke to her and explained his love. He took her to Crete, where he had been raised. He promised that she would bear him many famous sons (Hunt J.M. Zeus Lovers. http://edweb.sdsu.edu/people/bdodge/scaffold/GG/zeusLover.html, 4/9/04).

Notice that the story claims that Europa was actually born in Asia (some accounts say Europa was raped, others suggest she was seduced, by Zeus). Supposedly, according to other stories, once she was made “immortal” the continent was named after her.

Astarte, often called the ‘queen of heaven’, is widely believed to be of Asian origin. Ishtar/Astarte (from where the name Easter is derived) was a Babylonia goddess. This woman was probably originally based upon Semiramis (the mother of Nimrod of Genesis 10:8-9), who was considered the first queen of Babylon. Semiramis had herself deified as the mother of the god Damu and installed as the “queen of heaven” pictured in the constellation Cassiopeia. She is sometimes shown as a virgin with child, while she was widely believed to originally have been a harlot.

The story was also accepted by the ancient Romans. There are many ties between ancient Rome and what we are seeing in Europe and elsewhere these days.

What brought this to mind was the following:

Oligarchic Imperialism Is The New Dominant World Religion

In ages past people would be excluded from positions of influence and power if they did not belong to the dominant religion in that place and time. If you were a Jew living in the Holy Roman Empire, for example, the door would be closed to you from ever holding a position of power or influence over the mainstream population. In the same exact way, those who do not espouse the mainstream orthodoxy of continual military expansionism and status quo politics are cut off from major positions in politics and media using the modern-day equivalent of the “heathen” label. It’s a very old dynamic adapted for a new world. …

Oligarchic imperialism is the new dominant world religion. It is the scripture that everyone reads from. It is what shapes our culture. It is what holy wars are fought over and acts of terrorism committed for. It’s what power is built around. It’s what you’re branded a heretic for rejecting. …

Adherents of the old dominant religion fought in the crusades; adherents of the new dominant religion kill families with drones and Tomahawk missiles overseas. Adherents of the old dominant religion used to burn heretics at the stake; adherents of the new dominant religion imprison journalists and deplatform “Assadists”, “Putin apologists” and “conspiracy theorists” so their ideas don’t infect the rest of the flock.

These labels exist because if mainstream platforms admitted that they refuse access to literally anyone who disagrees with status quo oligarchic imperialism, they would have to admit that they are not the objective arbiters of absolute reality they portray themselves as being, but are in fact propagandists for a very specific belief system. That they are not tasked with the responsibility of reporting the news, but with promoting the doctrine of the new dominant world religion. That they aren’t news reporters, but high priests. …

Religion isn’t disappearing, it has just changed its form. …, so now people tell new fairy tales about a liberal world order which must be preserved by a beneficent superpower and its allies. In reality it is nothing other than propaganda for a murderous, tyrannical theocratic empire, of just the sort once presided over by Rome. https://caitlinjohnstone.com/2020/11/26/oligarchic-imperialism-is-the-new-dominant-world-religion/

The Bible itself warns about a false religious system based out of the city of seven hills–Rome–that rides the European Beast power (Revelation 17).

A new religion based on totalitarianism is not totally in place, but is coming. Notice that its prophesied European leader will combine an old and new religion and be totalitarian:

36 “Then the king shall do according to his own will: he shall exalt and magnify himself above every god, shall speak blasphemies against the God of gods, and shall prosper till the wrath has been accomplished; for what has been determined shall be done. 37 He shall regard neither the God of his fathers nor the desire of women, nor regard any god; for he shall exalt himself above them all. 38 But in their place he shall honor a god of fortresses; and a god which his fathers did not know he shall honor with gold and silver, with precious stones and pleasant things. (Daniel 11:36-38)

Yes, this leader will use religion and essentially enforce a new one, with elements of an old one, in a totalitarian manner.

The Bible clearly ties this coming leader to the ancient Roman empire:

26 … And the people of the prince who is to come Shall destroy the city and the sanctuary. (Daniel 9:26)

It was the Roman empire that destroyed Jerusalem and its temple sanctuary in 70 A.D. Notice the “prince who is to come” is related to the people of that empire–which included Romans and other Europeans. It is that “prince” who is called the King of the North in Daniel 11:40 and the Beast in Revelation 13 and 17.

Notice what the Bible shows this European power will do:

5 And he was given a mouth speaking great things and blasphemies, and he was given authority to continue for forty-two months. 6 Then he opened his mouth in blasphemy against God, to blaspheme His name, His tabernacle, and those who dwell in heaven. 7 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. 8 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.

9 If anyone has an ear, let him hear. 10 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.

11 Then I saw another beast coming up out of the earth, and he had two horns like a lamb and spoke like a dragon. 12 And he exercises all the authority of the first beast in his presence, and causes the earth and those who dwell in it to worship the first beast, whose deadly wound was healed. 13 He performs great signs, so that he even makes fire come down from heaven on the earth in the sight of men. 14 And he deceives those who dwell on the earth by those signs which he was granted to do in the sight of the beast, telling those who dwell on the earth to make an image to the beast who was wounded by the sword and lived. 15 He was granted power to give breath to the image of the beast, that the image of the beast should both speak and cause as many as would not worship the image of the beast to be killed. 16 He causes all, both small and great, rich and poor, free and slave, to receive a mark on their right hand or on their foreheads, 17 and that no one may buy or sell except one who has the mark or the name of the beast, or the number of his name.

18 Here is wisdom. Let him who has understanding calculate the number of the beast, for it is the number of a man: His number is 666. (Revelation 13:4-18)

Regarding a coming revived Roman empire, the old Worldwide Church of God put out the following back in 1973:

Who would have thought it was possible? … Europe will never rise again. Europe will never be united. Look at the blood-soaked record of history for the proof. “But today, be re our eyes, we see history in the making a united Europe emerging from dis-unity and the intrigue of the past, to take its place in world councils. …

But economic unity in Europe is only the first step toward a more solidly united Europe. The next projected step? A politcal union.The potential is tremendous. A united Europe can be an awesome force for world peace and economic stability and prosperity. Or, if misguided,misdirected or unrestrained, 8r enormous power for evil. …

What ls Planned?

What does the future hold for the nations of the Common Market? What do its creators and planners envision?The eventual aim is total economic, political and military integration – so that all the member countries act with one will and one voice in world affairs. When that happens, a “United States of Europe” will stand on an equal footing with both the United States and Russia, or any other power bloc that could arise in the world.Political union, realistic planners know, is necessary to secure economic stability. Political muscle is needed so that Europe will not become an economic pawn of other world power groups in the future. But political union, without military power,would still be ineffective. Military muscle, European leaders declare, will also be needed to make the political strength of a united Europe viable. …

The Bible plainly reveals that the drive for European unity will ultimately lead to the emergence of a final revival of the Roman Empire! A new empire is being fashioned in Europe – a new political power which will be big enough to challenge, and rival, the United States …

Biblical prophecies do indicate this empire will arise in the same general areas of Southern, Central and Western Europe in which the original Roman Empire and all its previous revivals have existed. (Comin–A New Roman Empire. Ambassador College Correspondence Course, Lesson 11. 1973)

Since the above came out, Europe has been uniting politically as well as militarily (e.g., see Europe’s Gaia-X and PESCO wake up call because of proposed US troop reductions in Germany).

And it will be even more totalitarian than what we are seeing currently on the world scene which has been pushed by government officials and the major media.

The Beast is forming and it will be a religion that most who survive will end up being part of.

Yet, the Bible tells people not to be part of it:

4 … Come out of her, my people, lest you share in her sins, and lest you receive of her plagues. 5 For her sins have reached to heaven, and God has remembered her iniquities. (Revelation 18:4-5)

Can you not see that the foundations of this are being laid now?

If so, NOW, not later, is the time to take action (cf. Zephaniah 2″1-3; 2 Thessalonians 2:9-12).
