The last king to reign in Babylon was Belshazzar, who celebrated the pagan Babylonian ritual using the sacred Jewish Temple vessels which his father, King Nebuchadnezzar, confiscated from the Jewish Temple in 587 B.C. Later that night the Persian Emperor, Cyrus the Great conquered Babylon and forced the Babylonian princes to flee to Pergamum.

For centuries, Pergamum had remained the site of Nimrod's seat or throne. With the appearance of Christianity, Babylonian paganism threatened the early Christian church of Pergamum as related in Revelation 3:12,13 "And to the angel of the church in Pergamum write: 'The words of him who has the sharp two-edged sword.' I know where you dwell, where Satan's seat is [Nimrod's]; you hold fast my name and you did not deny my faith even in the days of Antipas my witness, my faithful one, who was killed among you, where Satan dwells." They continued their reign there until 133 B.C. when Attalus III, the last Babylonian King to rule in Pergamum, willed his dominions to the Roman Caesar, and the kingdom of Pergamum merged with the Roman Empire.

The amazing "overnight" conversion of Romans to Roman Christianity.

In 63 B.C., Julius Caesar, who had been elected Pontifex Maximus, became Emperor of Rome and vested the office of Roman Emperor with the priestly powers and functions of the Babylonian Pontiff along with Nimrod's throne.  The title "Pontifex Maximus" was used by the Roman Caesars as illustrated on a Roman coin depicting the image of Augustus Caesar circa 27 B.C.

At the Council of Nicea in 325 A.D. the Universal or Roman Catholic Church was formed. Emperor Constantine then required the Roman armies to carry a shield with a cross. In 376 A.D., Gratian became the first Roman Emperor to refuse the title of Pontifex Maximus.  He presented the Babylonian (Nimrod's ) Seat or Throne to the Bishop Damasus of Rome in 378 A.D..

Roman Catholic popes began to be seated on the throne of Nimrod or Papal seat . They also wear the scarlet robes of Nimrod and the miter representing the mouth of the fish-god Dagon They carry the shepherd's crook or crosier of Nimrod and the keys of Janus and Cybele, representing Nimrod and Semiramis. Historians relate the amazing "overnight" conversion of Romans to Roman Christianity.


In actuality, the Roman pagans did not convert to Christianity; but rather, Bishop Damasus exercised his authority as head (Pontifex Maximus) and converted the Babylonian Temples of Rome and the Jewish Synagogues into Roman Christian churches. Shortly many rituals of Babylon were introduced into the Roman Christian Church such as veneration of statues, penance, relics, Lady Day, as well as some of the items from the Jewish tradition such as candles.


"Named by God 150 Years Before His Birth"

Isaiah the prophet foretold that a king of Persia would be born, Cyrus the Great (Surnamed by God) 150 years before his birth.

"Thus says the Lord to his anointed, to Cyrus whose hand I have holden, to subdue nations before him; and I will loose the loins of kings, to open before him two leaved gates; and the gates shall not shut; .For Jacob my servant's sake, and Israel mine elect, I have even called you by your name: I have surnamed you, though you have not known me. That says of Cyrus, he is my shepherd, and shall perform all my pleasures: even saying to Jerusalem, "you shall be built; and to the Temple, your foundation shall be laid." Isaiah 44:1,4, 28

Cyrus was to be a "shepherd" of God's people, in that he, by decree, permitted them to return to their own land and rebuild their cities and their Temple. ... According to Pliny, the Roman Historian, the wealth in jewels, gold, and silver of Cyrus the Great amounted to $353,427,200.00. The knowledge of God may have been given to Cyrus by Daniel, Ezra, or Nehemiah.

Cyrus acknowledges Jehovah as the True God

"Now in the first year of Cyrus king of Persia, that the word of the Lord by the mouth of Jeremiah might be fulfilled, the Lord stirred up the spirit of Cyrus king of Persia, that he made a proclamation throughout all his kingdom, and put it also in writing, saying,.Thus says Cyrus, king of Persia, the Lord God of Heaven has given me all the kingdoms of the earth; and he has charged me to build him a house at Jerusalem, which is in Judah. Who is there among you of all his people? His God be with him, and let him go up to Jerusalem, which is in Judah, and build the house of the Lord God of Israel, (He is God,) which is in Jerusalem" .. Ezra 1

Cyrus declares the first Charter of Human Rights

The victory over Babylonia expressed all the facets of the policy of conciliation which Cyrus had followed until then. He presented himself not as a conqueror, but a liberator and the legitimate successor to the crown. He also declared the first Charter of Human Rights known to mankind. He took the title of "King of Babylon and King of the Land".

Cyrus had no thought of forcing conquered people into a single mould, and had the wisdom to leave unchanged the institution of each kingdom he attached to the Persian Crown. In 539 BC he allowed 42,000 Jews to leave Babylon and return to Palestine while 960,000 remained in Babylon. This step was in line with his policy to bring peace to Mankind... Those he conquered regarded him as 'Lawgiver' and the Jews regarded him as 'the anointed of the Lord'. Cyrus also defended the farthest frontier of his kingdom against the nomadic tribes of Central Asia. Cyrus was upright, a great leader of men, generous and benevolent.
