Now, and watch that Babel tower come right on down, Babel, and right on down through there and end up over here in Revelation; a Christian, religious idolatry, pretending to be Christianity. Oh! John seen her in Revelation 17, admired her, how she set, looked like, and wore the Name of Jesus and everything else, and yet persecuted and martyred the saints of the living God. The Angel said, "Come here, and I will show you who she is." Said, "She's a great church that sets over many, on seven hills, and rules over the earth, and so forth. How she drank the blood of the martyrs of Christ!" Oh, mercy!

First Babylon was called the gates of heaven. Then it was called confusion. And there's where idolatry first started.

Back in Genesis we realize that different things happened back there. Look here. For instance Babylon appeared first in Genesis. Now, we have to watch Babylon. It appears over here in the Bible again about the middle of the Old Testament, and then comes all over into Revelations for the last days, Babylon.
It begin first, was the--the Gates of God, it was called. Then it was called Babylon, confusion. It was founded by Nimrod who was the son of Ham. And there's where idolatry started first, and there's where idolatry ends up at, still in Babylon. It comes all the way through. Every tree, you must bring it up through the--the time, up through the Bible.

And notice, I could state something here that would shock, but if--if it is... Listen, now. Watch how Babylon... What taken place at... in--in Babylon, when the force was brought on to the true worshipers. Remember, just a little handful, Shadrach, Meshach, and Abed-nego, and Daniel, of--of the true worshipers that went down into captivity, when God called them to--to really show their colors, what they were. They were forced into worship of an idol. Is that right? Idolatry! They was forced into worship an idol, and they had to bow before an idol. And if they didn't do it, they were persecuted.
