Sunday School Question: Explain what “Mystery Babylon” is and why it is called so. Your answer should be not less than 1 page and you must support your answer with Scriptures and quotations of Bro Branham.
The Answer was that Mystery Babylon in our day it’s Rome and it is called Mystery Babylon because it is a hidden thing. When we check in the bible, we see the beginning of Babylon in the book of Genesis 11, in the book of Daniel 1 and also in the book of Revelation 17.
Maybe one can ask, why is it Rome? In the beginning of Babylon in the book of Genesis, Nimrod’s Purpose was to founded a city and caused all of the other cities to pay tribute to this city. In our day, is there a place that makes every nation pay tribute to it? Yes and it is Rome ( References: Spoken Word & Scriptures: 54-0514 The Seal Of God P.g no. 161. 54-0513 – The Mark Of The Beast P.g no. 265. Genesis 10:9-10. Daniel 1:1. Revelation 17:5).
QUOTATIONS BY WILLIAM BRANHAM:
In the Spoken Word ‘Experiences which was preached in 1947-12-07 The Prophet Said in Paragraph 34 “Remember, “Come out of her, My people.” Is that right? Babylon, confusion that… And not the people now, not out of your churches, but come out of that confusion among you. You see?
In the Spoken Word ‘Five Definite Identifications Of The True Church Of The Living God which was Preached in 1960-09-11E The Prophet Said in Paragraph 56 “ And remember, she was called “MYSTERY, BABYLON.” We know that’s the Catholic church. But, notice, she’s “THE MOTHER OF HARLOTS.” What’s a harlot? The same thing that she is, the whore. Now, where did these organizations come from? There’s her mother. That’s what they are, to begin with. Then you say, “That’s the anti-Christ.” That’s true. Then if that’s anti-Christ, then what about our organizations? Just as harlot and whore, is the same thing, “committing adultery, committing fornication,” accepting false things because of the mind and intellectuals of men. As the Bible said, “Teaching for Doctrine the commandments of men.” That’s what’s called church today, which is against God’s Kingdom”.
In the Spoken Word ‘Why Are We Not A Denomination?’ Preached in 1958-0927 The Prophet said in Paragraph 57 “ Now notice the woman, the church, she was “Mystery, Babylon.” We see her appear by Nimrod. What was Nimrod’s purpose? Nimrod founded a city and caused all of the other cities to pay tribute to this city. Could we see such a thing today? Is there such a place today? Is there a church that has domination over every nation in the world? Certainly. Is there a place today that makes every nation pay tribute to it? Is there a place?”.
