Title:  OUR ORIGINAL AMERICAN MASONIC FOREFATHERS CONTINUALLY DEDICATED AMERICA TO SATAN FROM 1791 TO THE LATE 1890'S!

Subtitle: In a book released in 1999, written by a noted Astrologer and heartily endorsed by the 33 Degree Supreme Commander of The Supreme Council, Southern Jurisdiction, we read that the entire nation and its key government buildings were dedicated to the Dog Star Sirius, which in occult lore is Satan.

Noted Astrologer David Ovason published a book in 1999 entitled The Secret Architecture of our Nation's Capitol:  The Masons and the Building of Washington, D.C., in which he uncovered the historic fact that the Masonic Fraternity dedicated the young United States of America to the stars generally, and to the Dog Star Sirius .  Listen to the stated goal of this book:

"Today, there are more than twenty complete zodiacs in Washington, D.C., each one pointing to an extraordinary mystery.  David Ovason, who has studied these astrological devices for ten years, now reveals why they have been placed in such abundance in the center of our nation's capitol and explains their interconnections.  His richly illustrated text tells the story of how Washington, from its foundation in 1791, was linked with the Zodiac, with the meaning of certain stars, and with a hidden cosmological symbolism that he uncovers here for the first time."  [Jacket flyleaf]

Immediately, we are told that the capitol city of the United States of America was founded according to the Biblically forbidden practice of Astrology from the beginning of its serious construction.  Further, as we get into this material, you will discover that Washington, D.C. and its key government buildings, were specifically oriented and dedicated to the Dog Star Sirius, which we will later study, is the occult designation of Satan .

This book absolutely proves the Satanic nature of Freemasonry in its Invisible Fraternity, the vehement protestations to the contrary from Masons today.  Surely, you say, this book was written by an Anti-Mason.  Wrong!  The author, David Ovason, is a noted Astrologer, and his work is highly acclaimed by none other than C. Fred Kleinknecht, 33 Degree, Sovereign Grand Commander, The Supreme Council, 33 Degree (Mother Council of the World), Southern Jurisdiction, U.S.A., Washington, D.C. [Page viii].

Listen to Kleinknecht glowingly praise this book's findings in the Foreword.  "In this fascinating and well-researched book, David Ovason presents the remarkable thesis that Washington, D.C., is a city of the stars.  He demonstrates that there are over 30 zodiacs in the city, and that the majority of them are oriented in a meaningful way.  Even more astonishing is it to learn that these zodiacs were designed to point to the actual heavens -- thus marrying the Capital City with the stars ... the assignment, position, and meaning of Washington, D.C.'s zodiacs bespeak a relationship between heaven and earth."

"What does this mean to us?  The star Spica happens to be the one that David Ovason has shown to be symbolically linked with both Washington, D.C., and the United States as a whole ... this star may be the origin of the five-pointed star that adorns the American flag.  He also suggest that Spica may have been the origin of the Blazing (or Flaming) Star of Freemasonry." [Pages vii-viii]

Later, on pages 4-5, Ovason tells us that this star, Spica, is really Sirius, "represented in hieroglyphics that resembled an obelisk and a five-pointed star"; further, Ovason says that the stars for our American flag seems to have been taken from this Sirius hieroglyph.  If America and its capitol, were dedicated to the Dog Star Sirius, this is a very weighty matter, indeed, for as we showed in NEWS1430, and later here, this Sirius is Satan .

SPECIFIC EVENTS IN AMERICAN HISTORY DECIDED BY ASTROLOGY

"Had you stood on this water-edge of Foggy Bottom on April 3, 1791 ... you would have witnessed remarkable event -- one which seems to have been involved in the magic of the building of Washington, D.C.  On the morning of that day ... there would be an eclipse, when the Sun ... would be blacked out by the body of the Moon .. The eclipse of 1791 was in Aries -- a certain portent that the destiny of Washington, D.C., would be filled with pioneering endeavor and excessive (not to say belligerent) enthusiasms ... the augury of that morning ... was remarkable. The Sun and Moon were not the only pair in Aries at that time:  no fewer than five of the known planets were in that zodiacal Ram -- the sign which favors brave undertakings.  Such cosmic curiosities are a sign that the city had begun in a kind of dream -- as in a vision." [Page 6-7]

Indeed, America seems to have been started by occult Freemasons who were following the dream of Sir Francis Bacon, espoused from 1590-1626, that North America should be established as a New Atlantis.  Listen to New World Order author, Elizabeth van Buren, writing in her book, The Secret of the Illuminati :

"Sir Francis Bacon had formed with the aid of his secret society ... the plans for the colonization of the Western Hemisphere ... There is a secret and immutable destiny planned for mankind, one not recognized by or dreamt of by the mass of humanity.  The northern continent of America had been decreed to be the land of a democratic commonwealth of states thousands of years before Columbus ever sailed to its shores.  There can be no doubt that the Enlightened Ones had a hand in the formation of the new nation. Thomas Paine, George Washington, Benjamin Franklin, Thomas Jefferson, John Adams, and countless others who were involved in signing the Declaration of Independence were all Freemasons or members of some other sect.  The designs for both the Great Seal of the United States and earlier, the flag of the colony, indicate that they were inspired by those with esoteric knowledge." [Pages 142-144]

Now we know that Satan had plans for the United States to be founded according to his occult lore, as the New Atlantis.  Atlantis was the mythical city in which all of its inhabitants were expert practitioners of the occult doctrines, so adept that their Third Eye actually became physically apparent.  The United States was planned to be the New Atlantis that would lead the rest of the world into the occult heaven known as the New World Order, in which their Christ would rule triumphantly for 1,000 years! 

Sir Francis Bacon, beginning in the early 1590's, began the detailed plans by which North America would be colonized.  He was the supreme adept in the Rosicrucian Society, and established the super secret Knights of the Helmet [Ibid., p. 123-129], a society established along the lines of Rosicrucianism.  And, finally, Bacon was responsible for the modern birth of Freemasonry, as detailed by Masonic author, George V. Tudhope, in his book, Bacon Masonry , ISBN 1-56459-108-5, reprinted by Kessinger's Publishing.

Thus, we can see that the occult activities of our original occult Forefathers mentioned above was merely the outworking of an occult plan originally conceived "thousands of years before Columbus ever sailed"!  Our Masonic forefathers were merely following the details of the occult plan as envisioned specifically by Sir Francis Bacon in the 1590's, operating according to the vision provided him by his Guiding Spirit.

Christian author -- and former Black Magick Freemason -- William Schnoebelen, states that "... others saw America as the 'New Atlantis', a place where occultism could prosper uninhibited by Christianity.  Long before 1776, a colony of Rosicrucians was established in Ephrata, PA!  Colonial America was full of occult groups, and both Witchcraft and Freemasonry came over on the boats quite early!" [William Schnoebelen, Masonry:  Beyond The Light , Page 258]

In the New Atlantis, each citizen was so advanced in the occult that a Third Eye physically opened up between their forehead.  Shockingly, this Third Eye features prominently in this book by Ovason.  Listen:

"Other historians will tell you that the beginnings of this second Rome [Washington, D.C.] may be traced back to a much earlier dream, in the imaginative 'second-sight' faculty of a man who lived on this land ... in 1663, Francis Pope." [Page 8]  "Second-sight" is an occult term for a person who can clairvoyantly see through a Third Eye, not physically apparent yet, but operating nevertheless.  [William Schnoebelen, Masonry:  Beyond The Light , p. 178]  Thus, Ovason is saying that our original American Forefather Masons were so advanced they were seeing clairvoyantly! 

This understanding speaks volumes as to the original Satanic designs Masonry had for this country.  Let us now examine how Freemasons built key buildings in Washington, D.C. according to the doctrines of Satanism.  You are beginning to get an understanding of America you never had before, and you can now see why the street layouts were so designed that they were shaped in the form of Satanic symbols [Read NEWS1040, "Masonic Symbols of Power In Their Seat of Power, Washington, D.C., and NEWS1399, "Former Satanist Informs Us That Government Mall In Washington, D.C. Was Originally Conceived As A Sephirotic Tree of Life".]

Before we actually begin our study, let us allow Ovason the final word on the significance of Astrology and other occult symbols in the building of Washington, D.C.:  "... the mythology of the stellar lights plays an essential part in the foundation and history of the federal city ... Is there some secret behind the efforts of the builders of this city to ensure that so many stars should fall to Earth? Why should astronomers and astrologers make so much effort to weave their magic art in this city?  Furthermore, what is it about Washington, D.C., that, in 200 years of colorful history, has made it the focus of zodiac builders ... Is the city ... secretly being prepared for some future time when the stars will be seen as the living mysteries they really are?" [Pages 10-11]

The time when the "stars will be seen as the living mysteries they really are" will be when Antichrist rules and the Satanic Mysteries are brought back "into public expression" [Master D.K., The Externalisation of the Hierarchy , p. 570, speaking through Alice Bailey].  In other words, when Antichrist rules, he will reestablish the Satanic Mysteries as public worship.  Then, the real significance of the Astrology built into Washington, D.C., will be known to all.

Now, let us examine the extent to which Washington, D.C., was originally built according to Luciferian Astrology.

THE DECLARATION OF INDEPENDENCE

Historians recognize that the beginning of the new independent Republic occurred on July 4, 1776, when the Declaration of Independence was publicly issued.  We already know that the timing of this declaration was carefully calculated according to Satanic doctrine.  July 4 is exactly the 66th day following the beginning of the Satanic High Holy period called Beltane, which begins on April 30.  In this calculation, April 30 is counted as 'Day 1'.

The number '66' is the occult number for the Perfect Government of the Perfect Man, who is represented by the number '666'.  Therefore, by waiting for the 66th day following Beltane to establish the United States of America, our Masonic forefathers were telling fellow Adepts throughout the world and through time, that America was going to be the New Atlantis, the forerunner of the perfect global government of Antichrist.

Further, July 4 is exactly 13 days after Summer Solstice on June 21.  In this calculation, June 22 is counted as 'Day 1'.  The number 13 is the number of Satan's rebellion, and figures prominently in Luciferian lore.

But, now, David Ovason tells us something new about the Declaration of Independence.  "These [Astrological] computations clearly show that on the day the Declaration of Independence was agreed in Philadelphia, the Sun was on Sirius ." [Page 138]

Thus, our occult Masonic Founding Fathers calculated even the day when they should agree on the wording of the Declaration of Independence.  This day was one in which the Sun was on Sirius .  This careful attention to the timing of the events which succeeded in founding this nation were predetermined according to Astrological phenomenon! 

Ovason then clearly states, "The Mason who first signed the Declaration of Independence would have been aware of the particular significance of July 4 as a cosmic event." [Page 139]

As William Schnoebelen so boldly stated, "Colonial America was full of occult groups, and both Witchcraft and Freemasonry came over on the boats quite early!" From the very beginning of this Republic, the battle in the supernatural sphere was raging for the soul of this nation, just as God revealed is occurring for every major nation in every era in Daniel 10:20.

WHAT -- WHO -- IS SIRIUS THE DOG STAR BY WHICH AMERICA WAS ORIENTED?

Since we have already learned that Washington, D.C., specifically, and America generally, were originally laid out according to the Dog Star Sirius, we need to examine the Egyptian Satanic Mythology about Sirius.  Once we have examined Egyptian belief of this star, you will gain a far better understanding of the deep spiritual trouble America is in with God.  There has always been an America you never knew existed, but God knows, and that is the key to this discussion, at this End of the Age.

In Satanic legend, Sirius is one of the most important stars in the galaxy; but, more to the point, Sirius is Satan!  Let us listen to what Freemason leader and author, Albert Pike, has to say about Sirius, who came out of the Egyptian Mysteries.

"Isis was aided in her search [for the slain body of Osiris] by Anubis, in the shape of a dog.  He was Sirius, or the Dog-Star, the friend and counselor of Osiris, and the inventor of language, grammar, astronomy, surveying, arithmetic, music, and medical science; the first maker of laws; and who taught the worship of the Gods, and the building of Temples."  [Albert Pike, Morals and Dogma, p. 376, Teachings of the 24th Degree, Prince of the Tabernacle]

Thus, we can see the critically key role that Sirius plays in the world of the Egyptian Mysteries.  He was a counselor of the Messiah figure, Osiris, who died for the good of mankind, and whose body was "nailed up in the ark" [Ibid., p. 377].  Sirius taught the beneficial sciences, made the original laws, taught the worship of the pantheon of pagan gods, and taught how to build the pagan Temples.

Later, Pike tell us that Sirius was the "largest and brightest Star in the Heavens ..."  [Ibid., p. 454, Teachings of the 25th Degree, Knight of the Brazen Serpent].  Since Sirius is the most important star during the days of June and July, he is the star at the precise time the Summer is the hottest; therefore, we get our saying "Dog Days of Summer" from Sirius. 

However, when we dig into Luciferian lore just a little deeper, we realize that Sirius is just another name for Hell and for Satan !  Listen to occult writer M. Temple Richmond, writing in his book, Sirius, p. 29:

"The Euphrateans, Persians, Phoenicians, and the peoples of Vedic India called Sirius, The Leader, while the Romans knew Sirius as Janitor Lethacus, or Keeper of Hell, both of which titles are perhaps reminiscent of Anubis, the Egyptian god who led the deceased through the underworld.  The Egyptians themselves reverenced Sirius under several other names as well, including Sothis, Sothi, Sept, Sepet, Sopdet, Sot, and Sed."

Thus, this occult writer, Richmond, boldly states that Sirius is the Keeper of Hell!  In the Bible, we call this person, Satan .  Richmond further ties together Sirius with Anubis the dog. 

The Egyptians also called him Set, or Seth.  New Age author and founder of the Luciferian secret society called House of Theosophy, Helena Petrovna Blavatsky, writes of the god, Set.  "... Hermes, the god of wisdom, called also Thoth, Tat, Seth, Set, and Sat-an, and that he was, furthermore, when viewed under his bad aspect, Typhon, the Egyptian Satan, who was also Set." [Isis Unveiled, Vol. I, Science, New York, Trow's Printing and Bookbinding Company, 1877, p. 554, xxxiii.; Emphasis was in original]

Christian author, Bill Schnoebelen , former practicing Satanist, says that the Egyptian worship of Set was truly abominable.  He says, "in ancient Egypt, Set was worshipped with obscene, homosexual rituals". These rituals performed for Set/Sirius were so horrible and debased that "later rulers of Egypt defaced their temples and obelisks and tried to drive them from the land." [Schnoebelen, Twice The Child of Hell , p. 9]

Further, we discover that Sirius married his sister, Nephthys, according to the New Larousse Encyclopedia of Mythology, Prometheus Press, 1972, p. 21.  Thus, Sirius committed the sin of Incest.

Christian author, Texe Marrs, says "Throughout the centuries Sirius has been recognized by most occultists and esoteric teachers as the location were Lucifer and his hierarchy dwell.  In Christian terminology, Sirius is simply a secretive codeword for 'hell'. {Marrs, Book of New Age Cults and Religions, 1990, p. 299]

Occult author, Veronica Ions, boldly states that Anubis [Sirius as the Dog] was a god of divination and magic [Egyptian Mythology , England: The Hamlyn Publishing Group, Ltd., 1965, p. 83]; and Albert Pike notes that the "Egyptian Anubis is the god guarding the gates of death". [Pike, Morals and Dogma, p. 430]

Set/Sirius is portrayed by Black Magick Satanists as the "Devil of Darkness" and the Lord of the Underworld", according to New Age author, M. Esther Harding, in her book, Woman's Mysteries: Ancient and Modern , New York, G.P. Putnam's Sons for the C.G. Jung Foundation For Analytical Psychology, 1971 Edition, p. 48, and 168 respectively].

Further, Harding reveals that this "Underworld' over which Set/Sirius is charge is not Hades, but Tartarus, for "Tartarus is the hell of the damned and it was of this world that Set was the Lord".  Schnoebelen then adds the caveat that Set's symbol is the Inverted Pentagram!  Thus, the filthy Satanic Pentagram represents Sirius/Set , by whatever name the occultist uses.

Finally, Masonic author, Albert Pike, reveals in his book, Morals and Dogma, that the Pentagram Masons call the Blazing Star of their Lodges represents Sirius, the Dog Star!   Pike even blasphemously refers to Sirius as the "Guardian and Guide of our Souls ... which to the Ancients was the Sun." [Page 15-16]  This is Sun Worship at its very worst!

Now, you can see why Masonic architects planned the original street layout in Government Center to include the Goatshead of Mendes pentagram, the inverted pentagram mentioned above.  As we report in NEWS1040, this pentagram engulfs the White House!

KEY BUILDINGS BUILT AND DEDICATED ACCORDING TO SATANIC DOCTRINE

1.  House of the Temple, or the Supreme Council -- "... architect John Russell Pope ... built the most esoteric structure in Washington, D.C., once known to Masons as the House of the Temple, or the Supreme Council, Southern Jurisdiction."  [Page 9]  This building is the one located precisely 13 blocks north of the White House, and is directly lined up with that infamous obelisk, also known as the Washington Monument.  It is here that C. Fred Kleinknecht, 33 Degree Supreme Commander, The Supreme Council 33 Degree (Mother Council of the World), Southern Jurisdiction, makes his office.  This Masonic Temple is viewed by occultists as the true spiritual heart of Washington, D.C.

2.  Washington, D.C. street layout is laid out according to the plans of Babylon !  "... the positions of the Capitol and the White House became the focal points for the city ... the avenue joining the first two important sites (later called Pennsylvania Avenue) determined the approximate angle of the radiants from the Capitol. These radiants were imposed upon a grid of streets oriented on a north-south line, in a fashion which some historians trace back to ancient Roman foundations, and others to plans of Babylon." [Ovason, Page 41]

America is truly the Neo-Babylon of the world.  In Revelation 2:13, Jesus revealed that Satan has a city in which he makes his seat!  "I know thy works and where thou dwellest, even where Satan's seat is."  At the time Jesus revealed the events of Revelation to John, Satan's seat was in the city of Pergamos.  Since 1776, when Luciferian Masons established America as the New Atlantis, Satan's seat has been Washington, D.C.!  You will better understand the information which is to follow if you keep this thought in mind. 

America truly can be the Economic Babylon of Revelation 18! [Read CE1038 for full details]

Washington DC map

3.  Even the location of Government Center was made according to occult thinking!  George Washington issued a proclamation dated March 30, 1791, which set aside the specific location -- seen in this map -- on which Government Center was to be built.  This location was chosen because the layout of the land and the river created what esotericists call the "Pythagorean Y ".  As David Ovason explains, "The Pythagorean Y is a vestigial drawing [a faint tracing] of a path through life, in which one is perpetually presented with a choice of symbolic directions ... Should one do good or bad?  Should one be selfish, or generous?  The Pythagorean Y represented all the dualities which the growing soul must bear with each passing moment of time." [Ovason, Page 47]

Thus, this very location for this occult capitol city dedicated to the Egyptian Star Sirius was determined by occult thinking.  This geographical location was selected because the Potomac River and its Eastern Branch, naturally formed a "Pythagorean Y"!

The next event is also very revealing.  The ceremony to dedicate this particular area occurred on April 15, 1791, at precisely 3:30p.m.  "... Ellicott -- now revealed in the ritual as a Masonnic brother of George Washington -- symbolically confirmed the precise location ... This done, Elisha Cullen Dick, the Master of Alexandria Lodge No. 22 ... placed the marker.  Once the location was completed, a deposit of corn, wine, and oil was made upon it, according to Masonic practice."

The mere fact that Freemasonry carries out a Corn, Wine And Oil ceremony shouts for all to hear that this organization is as pagan and Satanic as any which has ever existed from the Egyptian and Babylonian Satanic Mysteries.  You see, this ceremony is a part of Sun Worship, a practice absolutely forbidden by Scripture!

Masonic author George H. Steinmetz, in his book Freemasonry:  Its Hidden Meaning , states:  "The ancients who worshipped the Sun as a god, or as a symbol of God, considered all things yellow, golden color, of the sun, as pertaining to it; hence, gold, brass, and corn or grain, because of their color, were deemed sacred ..."

Likewise, the ancient pagans associate wine with God, who was considered "at once the Wine of life and the Wine bearer". [Francis Grant, Oriental Philosophy , p. 133-134].

Finally, we learn the Astrological reason for beginning the ceremony at precisely 3:30p.m.  "At exactly 3:30p.m., Jupiter, the most beneficial planet in the skies, began to rise over the horizon.  It was in 23 degrees of Virgo ... he seized on the moment when the zodiacal Virgo was exerting an especially strong and beneficial influence.  By this means, the zodiacal power of Virgo, which was called in later Masonic circles 'the beautiful Virgin' was able to stamp her benign influence on the building of the federal city.  Was this one of the contributing reasons why many astrologers have insisted that Washington, D.C. is ruled by zodiacal Virgo ...  It is quite clear that the ceremonial placing of the stone related to more than merely the founding of the federal district:  it was somehow linked to the future destiny of America itself." [Ovason, Page 49]

4.  The occult role of Pennsylvania Avenue -- "In L'Enfant's faded map, and its later amendments, Pennsylvania Avenue was accorded the most important role, as mediator between Capitol and presidential home." [Ovason, P. 60] Pennsylvania Avenue represents one leg of the Masonic Compass running from the White House to the Capitol [Read NEWS1040 for full details and a map].

5.  The White House (President's House) -- "... the President's House was the first public building to be erected in Washington, D.C.  A letter submitted 'by a gentleman' to a Charleston newspaper offers the only surviving eyewitness version of the Masonic cornerstone laying, which was held on Saturday, October 13, 1792, when the Georgetown Lodge No. 9 of Maryland gathered for the ceremony."  [Ovason, P. 62]

Not only was the White House dedicated by Masons to the pagan gods, but the architect was a Mason, a person named James Hoban, whom Ovason calls a "speculative Mason". [Ovason, P. 63]

The cornerstone was laid carefully according to Astrology.  "In the arch of skies on the day the foundation stone for the White House was laid, there was a most interesting conjunction. Shortly before noon, the Moon had entered the same degree as the Dragon's Head (a node of the Moon).  Both planet and node were in 23 degrees of Virgo." [Ovason, Page 64-65]

With the White House having been dedicated to the pagan gods, you can see why the Goatshead of Mendes Pentagram -- the most evil of all symbols -- engulfs the Executive Mansion. [Read NEWS1040 for full details and a map].  Is it any wonder that so many of our Presidents have been Masonic or members of other occult groups?

6.  Streets laid out according to occult plan .  "Time and time again, as we study the Masonic involvement in the building of this city, through almost two centuries, we shall see emphasis placed on this sign Virgo.  Time and time again, we shall see that a knowledge of the stars played an important part in every stage of the creative phases in the construction of the city.  Indeed, as the story of Washington, D.C., unfolds, we will be forced to the conclusion that the 13 approximately straight lines of avenues which L'Enfant planned for the city were symbolic of the stripes of the national flag, laid out to receive the impress of the stars." [Ovason, P. 66]

Amazing! Now you know THE reason why the streets of Government Center in Washington, D.C., are laid out in obvious Luciferian symbols, like the Goatshead of Mendes [Inverted] Pentagram, the Masonic Compass, Square, Rule, and generally in such straight lines, 13 such streets to be exact.  These streets were "laid out to receive the impress of the stars" to satisfy Astrology, forbidden in Scripture. 

Further, we have already learned that the city street plan originated in Rome and Ancient Babylon!

With this concept in mind, let us review an occult poem created to commemorate the building of Washington, D.C.  Keep in mind that Washington, D.C., was originally called Rome, that "second-sight" refers to a Satanist who has achieved the mystic Third Eye clairvoyant capabilities, and that the obelisk is nothing more than the penis of Baal whom Satanists worship.  Consider this occult poet waxing great on the wonderful significance of building this second Rome, Washington, D.C.:

"In fancy now, beneath the twilight gloom,                                                                                      Come, let me lead thee o'er this second Rome!                                                                               Where tribunes rule, where dusky Davi bow,                                                                                     And what was Goose-Creek once is Tiber now!                                                                                 This embryo capital, where Fancy see                                                                                              Squares in morasses, obelisks in trees;                                                                                            Which second-sighted seers ev'n now, adorn,                                                                                    With shrines unbuilt and heroes yet unborn."

["Thomas Moore, "To Thomas Hume, from the City of Washington" (1804), printed in the 1853 edition of The Poetical Works of Thomas Moore, Vol. II, p. 296, reprinted by Ovason, p. 395, Footnote 22]

Can you feel God's judgment coming upon this pagan land?  Since America is clearly Babylon, I can hear the Savior's voice, saying, "And after these things I saw another angel come down from heaven, having great power; and the earth was lightened with his glory. And he cried mightily with a strong voice, saying, 'Babylon the great is fallen, is fallen , and is become the habitation of devils, and the hold of every foul spirit, and a cage of every unclean and hateful bird. 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 18:1-3]

Since this nation was established as a New Atlantis, a New Babylon, and since Washington, D.C. was originally established according to many of the same precepts as the original physical Babylon, this Scripture seems to apply very strongly to this country.  We have become the key nation in the world at this time, and all the nations have committed spiritual and commercial fornication with America, and the merchants of the earth have grown rich through trading with us.  As we clearly demonstrate in Seminar One, this Economic Babylon is the United States.  God's judgment draws ever nearer.
