Love not the world, neither the things that are in the world.  If any man love the world, the love of the Father is not in him.        - 1 John 2:15
The question before us today - what is the object of our love?  Where is our hope placed?  Is it in our jobs?  Is our hope in our possessions?  Is our hope in our retirement? Is our hope in our comfortable life?  Is our hope in our businesses?  Is our hope in our houses?  Is our hope in our cars?  Is our hope in our church?  Is our hope in our democratic government?  Is our hope in our economy?  Is our hope in a peaceful and prosperous world?  Is our hope in the freedoms we enjoy?  Is our hope in our past times, entertainment, and pleasure?

Do we believe that all the world's problems will be fixed by MEN and that the world will continue to progress toward a utopian state of prosperity and freedom for all?
 The question here is - do we believe in God (and God's view of men ) or do we believe in men and the works of men?

Remember, obey the Bible, obey the law, give honor to whom honor is due, esteem others above self, pray, if possible live peaceably with all men, be content with what you have, be thankful, do not expect the world to be reformed-improved-blessed or made "christian" and let the Lord guide you into the patient waiting for His soon return.  Always remember that except the Lord build the house, they labor in vain that build it. Remember that all of us are sinners and we are all in need of a savior.  Man, apart from faith in the work of Jesus Christ on the cross, is - by nature - the enemy of God.  It is trusting in man, and not the Lord, that has brought man to this point in history.  All of us will bow the knee to confess that Jesus Christ is Lord.  Will we do this freely now or will we do it when it is too late? 

This study is dedicated to the LORD JESUS CHRIST, the coming King.  It is written with the hope that believers will be edified by the evidence herein of His soon return and the amazing truth, accuracy, and complete reliability of the King James Bible, the Word of God. If the Lord is willing, perhaps He will bring some who read this to be saved.  For all it is my hope that some will return to the Bible and be awakened to the sobering reality of God's IMMINENT unfolding of the AWESOME events in the Book of REVELATION.  Even so, come Lord Jesus.

Before you proceed, you may need to read about antichrist-type thinking , a thing which all of us should be careful to avoid.

             What the Bible Says About the Vatican & "Merchants" Being Enemies?

The "merchants" are [theoretically] treated as one ideological enemy by the Vatican [according to Malachi Martin].  Among these men are SOME who would destroy the Vatican as a political institution - because they are furious over what they consider Vatican "meddling" in politics.  [ If the truth were known, the left's preoccupation with opposing institutionalized "Christianity" is, in reality, opposition to the influence of the Vatican. ]  Many think tanks and interest groups, such as the Bilderbergers, the Council on Foreign Relations (CFR), and Trilateral Commission are generally associated by "conspiracy theorists" with the "merchants."  These groups represent the bogeyman to the "conspiracy theorists."  Taking Martin's view [the Vatican is against the "merchants" and vice versa], we would conclude that the Bilderbergers, CFR, and Trilateral Commission are the enemies of the Vatican.  Is this view complete?

Since the Bible is true, let's look at what it says.

Interestingly enough, the "merchants" of the Bible (along with the "kings"), who have been "made rich" by their relationship with the "great city" [which, by the way, is referred to as a woman. ] are the ones who mourn over the loss of the "great city. "

Why do the merchants mourn over her?

Revelation 18:11   And the merchants of the earth shall weep and mourn over her; for no man buyeth THEIR merchandise any more:

Revelation 18:3   For all nations have drunk of the wine of the wrath of her fornication, and the kings of the earth have committed fornication with her, and the merchants of the earth are waxed rich through the abundance of her delicacies.

Revelation 18:15-19   The merchants of these things, which were made rich by her, shall stand afar off for the fear of her torment, weeping and wailing,   And saying, Alas, alas, that great city , that was clothed in fine linen, and purple, and scarlet, and decked with gold, and precious stones, and pearls!   For in one hour so great riches is come to nought. And every shipmaster, and all the company in ships, and sailors, and as many as trade by sea, stood afar off,   And cried when they saw the smoke of her burning, saying, What city is like unto this great city!    And they cast dust on their heads, and cried, weeping and wailing, saying, Alas, alas, that great city , wherein were made rich all that had ships in the sea by reason of her costliness! for in one hour is she made desolate.

Therefore, one can ask the question - do the "merchants" profit from their relationship with the "great city?"  Because of the destruction of the "great city" the merchants are no longer able to sell "THEIR merchandise."   Since the "merchants " mourn the loss of the "great city", are the "merchants" and the "great city " partners or enemies?

Who is the "great city?"

Revelation 17:18   And the woman which thou sawest is that great city, which reigneth over the kings of the earth .  

This was written in approximately 90 A.D. and is in the present tense.  What city was reigning over the kings of the earth in 90 A.D.?   Many say that the great city, [also called Babylon the Great and is referred to as a woman in the verses above] is New York or Baghdad (revived Babylon).  They must be wrong because New York or Baghdad has never been drunk with the martyrs of Jesus.  See Revelation 17:6.  The symbolism here is a that of a woman, a religious institution, similar to the seductress Jezebel in the old testament.  No one else meets all the requirements.

If you take Malachi Martins' description of the Vatican's role in controlling, establishing, and maintaining the first one-world government (and nothing else), you'd be hard pressed to refute the belief that the Vatican is Babylon the Great.

So, according to the Bible the "merchants" are working WITH Babylon the Great for the purpose of monetary profit.

The testimony of the Bible is that Babylon the Great is the MOTHER , that is, the initiator of much of what happens.

Revelation 17:5   And upon her forehead was a name written, MYSTERY, BABYLON THE GREAT, THE MOTHER OF HARLOTS AND ABOMINATIONS OF THE EARTH.  (capitalization emphasis is in the original).

The testimony of the Bible is that the citizenry are made drunk (deluded) by that which results from Bablyon the Great's illicit relationship ("fornication") with the political "kings."

Revelation 17:2   With whom the kings of the earth have committed fornication, and the inhabitants of the earth have been made drunk with the wine of her fornication.

The testimony of the Bible is that the extent of Babylon the Great's influence is over ALL NATIONS and that what was the "wine of her fornication " in Revelation 17:2 will become the "wine of the WRATH of her fornication " in Revelation 18:3.

Revelation 18:3   For all nations have drunk of the wine of the wrath of her fornication, and the kings of the earth have committed fornication with her, and the merchants of the earth are waxed rich through the abundance of her delicacies.

Jesus said "if my kingdom were of this world, then would my servants fight " [John 18:36].  We are not of this world; therefore, live peaceably and do not fight.
