From “Romulus” to the European Union…The Mystery of Rome Revealed

From “Romulus” to the European Union…The Mystery of Rome Revealed
Everything “Roman”
Rome. The word struck terror in the hearts of its enemies for centuries. And “Rome” did last for centuries… a marvel in and of itself. But, the Rome that comes down to us as “Republic”, “Empire”, “Eastern and Western Roman Empire” are not all the same “Rome”. In fact, the real Rome is an even more diversified entity.

Rome, from a biblical standpoint, is really first introduced to us in the book of Daniel. There it is a beast… and a very special beast, unlike any other:

And the fourth kingdom shall be strong as iron: forasmuch as iron breaketh in pieces and subdueth all things: and as iron that breaketh all these, shall it break in pieces and bruise. – Daniel 2: 40

This beast “…subdueth all things and is strong as iron”. Rome advanced into three continents, conquering whole populations. Interestingly enough, Rome’s mission was thoroughly messianic. The Roman people believed they were given a mission. They advanced into other civilizations with a mission to bring their civilization to the rest of the world. Of course, that excuse to plunder, rape, pillage and burn other civilizations was nothing new to the nations. All tyrants plead their own version of “justice” and “truth”.

Rome, however, is a study in PEOPLE-CONTROL. The Romans realized that constant fighting drains the Treasury. Plunder, though necessary to the socialist state’s survival, need not always come directly through the sword.

The Roman government experimented with the concept of “law as plunder” – again, nothing new to civilization to that point in history (Those who laud Hammurabi’s oppressive economy don’t understand “legal plunder”. But, the Romans DID invent a unique and deceptive system and the corporate fascism designed to ensnare and control their subject peoples. The reason for this excursion down history’s memory lane is due to three very important issues:

1. The beast upon which the harlot rides has “seven heads”. We are told here that the seven heads are Seven Mountains. That is a clear identification of the historic Roman Power since Rome was always the city of the seven hills. Here those mountains are used as the Bible consistently utilizes the term: “kingdom”. Rome, the power that sent its legions into empire-creating wars, actually evolved through seven kingdom developments throughout the course of its approximate 1229 year reign (753 B.C. – 476 A.D.)

2. The most important lesson we can learn about this Roman power helps us today fight for Christ’s Righteousness and an upright civilization.

3. Understanding the Beast, the harlot and Roman authority through the ages helps us to make Revelation’s prophetic-historic metaphors understandable.
