The third letter that Jesus wrote to the congregations on earth was Pergamos, also known as Pergamum. In the previous chapter, Revelation 1:16, John saw Jesus holding the seven stars in his right hand with a sharp two-edged sword in his mouth. Jesus introduces himself to this church as “He who has the sharp two-edged sword.”
The two-edged sword is Jesus’ word. He can create or kill by speaking. All he has to do is open his mouth and utter the sentence. The prophet Isaiah foretold that He will strike the earth with the rod of his mouth; with the breath of his lips he will slay the wicked. Isaiah 11:4
The commendation: “I know your works, and where you dwell, where Satan’s throne is. And you hold fast to My name, and did not deny My faith even in the days in which Antipas was My faithful martyr, who was killed among you, where Satan dwells.” Rev 2:13
In John’s day Satan’s throne was at Pergamum in what is now Turkey. At that time, Pergamum was the capital of the Roman province of Asia. It was here that the Olympic Games were started. It’s also where we get the medical symbol of the snake wrapped around Asclepius’ staff – the symbol on the World Health Organisation logo.
Satan moves from empire to empire. He’ll go wherever the power base is. So his throne moved from Babylon to Pergamum. In this empire, Satan was known as Zeus.
Zeus’s altar stood 800 feet up the 1000 foot mountain overlooking the city. All day long this altar smoked with the smoke of endless sacrifices. It dominated the city, like a pillar of cloud by day and a column of fire by night.
Antipas, Jesus’ faithful martyr, was roasted to death on this altar inside a bronze bull in AD 92. The evil thing was designed in such a manner that the victim’s screams made the bull bellow, but Antipas died praying for his church.
In 1898 the throne was dismantled and taken to Germany. It’s now housed in the Pergamon Museum in Berlin. Using the altar as his model, Albert Speer created a colossal grandstand for Hitler at the rally grounds in Nuremberg, putting Hitler’s podium in the middle of the grandstand, in the place where the bronze Altar of Zeus stood in ancient Pergamum.
In 1939 Hitler would commence World War II from this podium. It was also where Hitler announced his ‘Final Solution’ to the world – the burnt sacrifice of millions of Europe’s Jews.
The altar has been closed to all visitors since 2014 while the Pergamon Museum building is being renovated. At the time of writing it’s been eight years. They could have built a whole new building by now. It makes me wonder if the throne is still secretly in use? I’m probably not the only one asking that question!
Has it inspired world leaders? Hitler and Obama both modelled their stages on this throne. Obama has been back to the throne of Satan several times and Angela Merkel lives across the road from it.
The Bible speaks of principalities and powers. Berlin is a power base. Has the power behind the throne influenced affairs in Germany?
Have a look at Berlin’s coat of arms. The beast with the feet like those of a bear is in Berlin. There could be more bears, but this one has come out of hibernation after World War 2 and it’s hungry.
In Revelation chapter 13:2, John saw a beast resembling Daniel’s beast – but he saw the entity as composite, and concurrent instead of sequential. He wrote, “The beast I saw resembled a leopard, but had feet like those of a bear and a mouth like that of a lion.” Revelation 13:2
So the fourth beast is sequentially a fourth empire and it will be dictatorship with foundations from Babylon, Medo-Persia, and Greece. Of the Greek gods, Zeus was the most important and highest ‘god.’
Satan’s plans for the third reich were frustrated but he’s on track for the fourth reich. This fourth beast is the empire about to be set up by the great reset and the fourth industrial revolution, where Klaus Schwab promised “you will own nothing but be happy.”
The WHO Hub
Did you know that in 2021 the World Health Organisation and Germany launched a new global hub for pandemic and epidemic intelligence? The hub is based in Berlin.
We know that the World Heath Organisation is trying to form itself into a World Government. I’m sure you’re putting it all together. They can go on declaring pandemics and force us to get vaccinated.
I’d already smelled “something rotten in the state of Denmark,” but the clincher for me was hearing that Babylon would deceive the nations with pharmakeia.
The Book of Revelation puts Babylon together with sorcery. If you look the word sorcery up in a Greek lexicon you’ll find it means pharmakeia. All nations would be deceived by Babylon’s merchants and Babylon’s sorcery. All the nations.
What Jesus Christ said to the church of Pergamos applies to us all.
The problem: “But I have a few things against you, because you have there those who hold the doctrine of Balaam, who taught Balak to put a stumbling block before the children of Israel, to eat things sacrificed to idols, and to commit sexual immorality. Thus you also have those who hold the doctrine of the Nicolaitans, which thing I hate. Repent, or else I will come to you quickly and will fight against them with the sword of My mouth. Rev 2:14-16
The Nicolaitans have already been covered. Jesus commended the Church at Ephesus for combating them, see Letters From Jesus, to Loveless Ephesus and Persecuted Smyrna.
The Doctrine of Balaam
Balaam was freely given a prophetic gift from God, which he used for profit. Balak the king of Moab hired Balaam to curse Israel. Balaam found he couldn’t curse Israel directly. So Balak came up with a plan for Israel to bring a curse upon themselves by luring them into sexual sin with the Midianite women. The plan was successful.
What do Balaam’s prophets look like nowadays? Technocrats prophesying pulmonary death and Monkey pox? Klaus and his gene-genie billionaire friends worship their technology, their Artificial Intelligence, their immunisations and their gene therapy, which the whole world has been forced to take “for our health.”
Do you think vaccines are an idol? And compromising churches have gone along with it, saying we should keep each other safe and love our neighbour by taking the needle. Some compromise because they’re well intentioned but naive. Some because they run their churches as businesses and they’ll conform to keep them running.
They’ll tell us it’s biblical to submit to the authorities. No, NOT if it’s disobeying Christ! I wonder what Jesus would have said hearing he’d need a vaccine pass to attend church.
Balaam’s servants are described as having left the straight way and wandered off to follow the way of Balaam son of Bezer, who loved the wages of wickedness, 2 Peter chapter 2.
In the Book of Jude they have rushed for profit into Balaam’s error, Jude 1:11.
Jude is the smallest book of the Bible, there’s only one chapter. You’ll find it immediately before the book of Revelation.
Jude spoke of the need to contend earnestly for the faith which was once for all delivered to the saints; For certain men have crept in unnoticed, who long ago were marked out for this condemnation, ungodly men, who turn the grace of our God into lewdness and deny the only Lord God and our Lord Jesus Christ. Jude verse 4
The gay rainbow and all it stands for is another idol that some churches have fallen for. There have been warnings in the past, particularly with the 2013 Jude storm. That year, Britain celebrated the 60th anniversary of Queen Elizabeth’s coronation. At the same time Britain’s Prime Minister, David Cameron introduced the same-sex marriage bill which the Queen signed. In giving it her royal approval, she broke her coronation oath. Queen Elizabeth bears the title ‘Defender of the Faith.’ In her coronation oath of 1953, she swore to maintain the laws of God and the true profession of the Gospel.
The Lord’s response to Britain’s leaders soon came as the Saint Jude storm, nicknamed ‘Christian’ roared in the month of October 2013. The storm was so named because it happened on the feast of Saint Jude the Apostle.
The storm caused at least seventeen deaths. During the storm, a crane collapsed on top of the Cabinet Office in London, the office of the Prime Minister and cabinet of the United Kingdom.
So watch out, Balaam’s servants are apostates who can lead a whole nation into sin. I’m not saying the Queen is apostate, but David Cameron introduced the same-sex marriage bill, which she signed and then he had the temerity to read from the Bible at Westminster Abbey while the bill was going through parliament next door. He described the subsequent storms as ‘biblical.’ I wonder why. If the storm was biblical, did he not realise that God had sent a message from the Book of Jude?
There’s a lot to overcome.
Here’s Jesus’ promise; “To him who overcomes I will give some of the hidden manna to eat. And I will give him a white stone, and on the stone a new name written which no one knows except him who receives it.” Rev 2:17
The reward for Pergamum isn’t mirrored back to us at the end of Revelation and the rewards for those who have overcome are somewhat mysterious. Jesus can be enigmatic.
What is this hidden manna? Manna tastes a bit like a honey wafer and it’s the food of angels. The Hebrew word manna literally means “what is it?” So we’ll have to wait and see.
As for the white stone reward, the Olympic games began at Pergamum. It hearkens back to the ancient Roman custom of awarding a white stone to the victors in athletic games with their name inscribed on it. This served as their ‘ticket’ to a special awards banquet.
