~THE MODERN BABYLON IN THREE PARTS CHART ~

We can tell the future by looking at the past. God's people have historically always had three enemies grouped into a confederacy; made up of a singular entity, another singular entity, and a combined or plural entity.
End-time Modern Babylon is made up of three parts too.
Singular Singular Plural
Midian Moab Balaam Num. 22:4-5
Edom Moab Ammon 2 Chron. 20:10
Sanballat Tobiah Geshem Neh. 2:19
Edom Moab Ammon Dan. 11:41
Hebrew Latin Greek Lk. 23:38
(sons of the Ionians)
Hebrew, Latin and Greek above Jesus' cross symbolized the whole world (in 3 parts) being against Christ. Yet, He gets His sheep out of that same whole world.....separates His friends out from His enemies .......wheat from the tares ....wise virgins from foolish virgins, etc...
Historical Scenarios: two past, one future.
1). Ahab Jezebel Priests of Baal 1 Ki. 17-19
2). Herod Herodias Salome Mt. 14:6-11
3). United Nations Catholicism United States Rev. 17
Growth of the Beast:
Revelation 13:2 "And the beast which I saw was like unto a leopard, and his feet were as [the feet] of a bear, and his mouth as the mouth of a lion: and the dragon gave him his power, and his seat, and great authority."
Constantine in 330 AD, Clovis from 496 to 508 AD, and Justinian in 533 were all tools of the dragon, therefore WERE the dragon, each one doing a part to help the Papal-Beast to rise to power in 538 AD. Rome has not forgotten this either. In 1996 Pope John Paul II went to France to celebrate the 1500th anniversary of Clovis' "conversion" in 496AD.
Clovis ALSO parallels the USA/False Prophet because he forced the rest of the semi-pagan world to put the Papal/Beast power on the throne of "Christendom" back then, like the USA will soon force the U.N. to place the Beast on the throne of the entire world in the future.
Authority Seat Power (Rev. 13:2)
Justinian Constantine Clovis
533 AD 330 AD 496-508 AD
Names Pope as Exits Rome, Dedicates military power against Church's enemies.
head of Church. leaves power vacuum. The Church steps in.
The (healed) Papal Rome, the (apostate) United States, and the (deceived) United Nations will finally combine into a 3-fold union that will constitute the Modern Babylon that will war against God's people at the end of the world.
In the order of Rev. 16:13:
Dragon Beast False Prophet
United Nations Papacy United States
Rev. 17 Dan. 11:40-45 Rev. 13
Rev. 17, is primarily about the end-time 10 kings-U.N.-Dragon power.
Dan. 11:40-45, is primarily about the end-time Papal-Beast power.
Rev. 13, is primarily about the end-time USA-False Prophet power.
Historical Scenario 1.
1Ki. 17-19: King Ahab (the State-Dragon), was wrongly involved with an impure pagan woman, Jezebel (corrupt church-Beast), who had controlling influence over him. Elijah (future loyal church) blew the whistle on them. Her helpers (priests of Baal-False prophets), did an entertaining "dance of deception" that deceived the population into believing her religion was safe. At Mt. Carmel Ahab was "converted" back to the worship of God, but Jezebel, [Surprise!] instead of confessing the power of Elijah's God, just wanted to kill Elijah! (Death Decree)
Historical Repeat; Scenario 2.
Mt. 14:6-11: King Herod (the State-Dragon), was wrongly involved with an impure woman, Herodias (corrupt church-Beast), who had controlling influence over him. John the Baptist--(Elijah II --future loyal church) blew the whistle on them. Her helper (Salome), did an entertaining "dance of deception" that deceived Herod into believing he was safe in making a rash boast. Herod was "converted" back to the worship of God (sort of) by the preaching of John, but Herodias, [Surprise!] instead of confessing the power of John's God, just wanted to kill John! (Death Decree)
Future Historical Repeat; Scenario 3.
Rev. 17: The United Nations [the "ten kings who have no kingdom as yet"] (the State-Dragon), will become wrongly involved with an impure woman, Catholicism (corrupt church-Beast), who will have controlling influence over them. Elijah III (future loyal people of God) will blow the whistle on them. Her helper (USA-False Prophet), is now doing an entertaining "dance of deception" (using its economic and military powers) that will deceive the U.N. into making the Pope its leader. The U.N. will be deceived into believing the Pope will fix the Muslim Terrorist problem and make the world safe, but the Pope, [Surprise!] instead of fixing the Muslim Terrorist problem, will just want to kill Sabbath-keepers! (Death Decree)
Modern Rome = Babylon in 3 parts
"Kings and rulers and governors [the United Nations] have placed upon themselves the brand of antichrist, and are represented as the dragon who goes to make war with the saints--with those who keep the commandments of God and who have the faith of Jesus."
