1.Satan’s [false] church began officially at the Tower of Babel in Genesis 11:1-9, nearly twenty-four centuries B.C.
2.The first full-time [Prime] minister of Satan was Nimrod, Noah’s wicked and apostate gradnson (Gen. 10:8-10).
3.Secular history and tradition2 tell us that Nimrod married a woman who was as evil and demonic as himself. Her name was Semerimus.
Knowing God’s promise of a future Savior (Gen. 3:3:15), Semerimus brazenly claimed that Tammuz, her first son, fulfilled this prophecy.
4. Semerimus thereupon instituted a religious system which made her and her son the objects of divine worship. She herself became the first high priestess. Thus began the mother-child cult which spread all over the world.
The city of Babylon was the seat of Satan worship until it fell, in 539 B.C. to the Persians.
a. From Babylon it spread to Phoenicia under the name of Ashteroth and Tammuz.
b. From Phoenicia it traveled to Pergamos in Asia Minor. This is the reason for John's admonition to the church at Pergamos in the book of Revelation: "I know thy works, and where thou dwellest, even where Satan's seat is" (Rev. 2:13).
c. In Egypt the mother-child cult was known as Isia and Horus [the eye of Horus is the All-seeing eye of Freemasonry and Zionism worldwide].
d. In Greece it became Aphrodite and Eros.
e. In Rome this pair was worshipped as Venus and Cupid.
f. In China it became known as Mother Shing Moo and her child.
Dr. J. Dwight Pentecost writes:
"Several years ago I visited an archeological museum in Mexico City. A recent find had just been put on display which Mexican archeologists had authenticated as belonging to the period about 200 years before Christ. The object was the center of religious worship among some of the early Indians in Mexico. To my amazement, it was an image of a mother with child in her arms. This Babylonian religion spread abroad to become the religion of the world." (Prophecy for Today, p. 133).
5. What was the [false] teaching of Semerimus satanic church?
a. That Semerimus herself was the way to God. She actually adopted the title "Queen of Heaven" [Roman Catholicism bestows this same title on Mary, the mother of Jesus, most likely to distract Christians from simple devotion to Christ].
b. That she alone could administer salvation to the sinner through various sacraments such as the sprinkling of holy water.
c. That her son Tammuz was tragically slain by a wild boar during a hunting trip.
d. That he was, however, resurrected from the dead forty days later. Thus, each year afterward the temple virgins [nuns] of this cult would enter a forty-day fast [Lent] as memorial to Tammuz' death and resurrection.
e. After the forty-day fast, a joyful feast called Ishtar took place. At this feast colored eggs were exchanged and eaten as a symbol of the resurrection...
...[religious and secular modern celebration of Easter, but do you recall the apostles doing such things after Christ's crucifixion?].
An evergreen tree was displayed and a Yule log was burned. Finally, hot cakes marked with the letter T (to remind everybody of Tammuz) were baked and eaten [some of the secular and pagan traditional practices of Christmas].
6. About 2000 B.C. God called Abraham away from all this (see Josh. 24:2, 3) and led him into the Promised Land. But by the ninth century B.C. Israel had returned to this devil worship under the influence of wicked Jezebel (1 Ki. 16:3-33). At the time the cult was worshipped under the name Baal.
7. Both Ezekiel and Jeremiah warned against this hellish thing.
"Then he brought me to the door of the gate of the Lord's house which was toward the north; and behold, there sat women weeping for Tammuz" (Ezek. 8:14).
"The children gather wood, and the fathers kindle the fire, and the women knead their dough, to make cakes to the queen of heaven...to burn incense to the queen of heaven, and to pour out drink offering unto her" (Jer. 7:18; 44:25).
8. By the time of Christ, this cult had so influenced Roman life that the Caesars were not only crowned as emperors of Rome, but also bore the title Pontifex Maximus, meaning "high priests." They were high priests of the Babylonian satanic church.
"The Roman priests of Tammuz soon discovered that they could easily make the transition into Christianity (with certain changes)...
...and thereupon carried their traditions forward without interruption by promoting the Modanna-Child worship concept, the holy water sacrament, etc."
“Thus for nearly 300 years the devil had desperately attempted to destroy the church from outside by his terrible persecutions. But with the advent of Constantine [the Great] he changed his tactics, walking the aisle to work from within. The corrupted church was already flourishing in Christ’s day, and the Savior delivered a scathing attack against some of its very deacons and elders (Mt. 23).”3
Regardless, any religion that professes to represent Jesus Christ, and teaches people to give devotion to Jesus' mother in unison with God or seperate—but related to the Lord, contradicts the Holy Bible (and the teachings of Jesus Christ Himself—See Luke 11:27-28; and Matthew 12:50).
The Council of Nicea Fresco in the Sistine Salon Vatican
By the time of Constantine, the ancient Jewish sects of Pharisees, Sadducees, Scribes and Sanhedrin could no longer contain Christianity, so many of these religious leaders professed Christianity in order to try and keep control of the people and the religion of the empire. At the Council of Nicea, these same religious leaders argued about the divinity of Christ.
The first popes of the first century and made themselves the representatives of Christ—denying the very teachings of 1 Peter 2:9 and Hebrews 7. In the Roman Catholic Church (RCC) the pope is supposed to be the successor of the apostle Peter.
The Magisterium of the RCC believe they are the succesors of the apostles, but then why do they teach a doctrine that is contrary to what Jesus and the apostles actually taught?
In addition to being a graven image, notice that the mother wears a crown.
Commandments Number 1 and 2
3 “You shall have no other gods before Me.
4 “You shall not make for yourself a carved image—any likeness of anything that is in heaven above, or that is in the earth beneath, or that is in the water under the earth;
The RCC teachings on Mariology make Jesus' mother the "Mother of the Church." However by these men putting the "mother-child cult" concept into a box, or adoration chapel and rosary, they have done what Jesus Christ foretold:
25 Jesus knew their thoughts and said to them, “Every kingdom divided against itself will be ruined, and every city or household divided against itself will not stand. 26 If Satan drives out Satan, he is divided against himself. How then can his kingdom stand?
Revelation 17 and 18 reveals the worldly kingdom of the false religion and Satan's embodiment in the Antichrist divided against itself.
God has inspired me to present the truth of the Holy Bible in a practical way by comparing it to the major world-wide religion that professes to represent Christ.
The Counter-Reformation of the Roman Catholic Church, and the Second Vatican Council was successful in allowing people to think that they have religious freedom. However, we are moving towards a time in history whereby religious freedom is being perpetuated as a faith in men, instead of obedience to God and His Word.
The Satanic French philosopher Voltaire planed for the destruction of the Holy Bible in the future and world-wide chaos to be carried out by religious, financial, political and esoteric organizations.

2. NOTE: Regardless of secular history and tradition about the Legend of Semiramis (Semerimus), why would Christians give devotion and adoration to the mother of Jesus as the "Queen of Heaven," when Christ only taught about devotion to His Father and His Word?
“As he was speaking, a woman in the crowd called out, ʻGod bless your mother-the womb from which
you came, and the breasts that nursed you!ʼ Jesus replied, “But even more blessed are all who hear the word of God and put it into practice” (Luke 11:27-28). “Anyone who does the will of my Father in heaven is my brother and sister and mother!” (Matthew 12:50).
Mariology : Is the branch of study within Catholicism that deals with focusing on Mary, the mother of Jesus.
The Catechism of the Roman Catholic Church teaches that Mary continues to bring us the eternal
gift(s) of salvation (Section 969). Christ did NOT teach people to be devoted to his mother with adoration, graven images of Mary and the saints, and Marian prayers such as the rosary.
Nevertheless, here is the Legend of Semiramis, excerpts by James Donahue
Historian George Foryan, in a lengthy essay titled "The Legend of Semiramis," wrote that the only complete significant documentation he found intact about Semiramis is by Greek historian Diodorus Siculus, who lived at about the same time as Julius Caesar. Some scholars argue that the text, however, is plagiarized "and based on historical legends colored with elaborations of thought and disguised fantasies."
King Tukulti-Ninurta, or Nimrod if you prefer the Biblical version, was said to have ruled the land of Shinar and founded several great cities, including Babylon, at about 2,182 B.C. The link between the two names is this: the Genesis account claims that Nimrod founded the City of Nineveh. Justin's Histori Romani Scriptorium, however, gives credit of founding Nineveh to the Assyrian king Tukulti-Ninurta I who existed from 1246 to 1206 B.C.
Semiramis was the wife of Tukulti-Ninurta, or Nimrod. She was said to have not only been very beautiful, but also politically powerful. As the story goes, both Nimrod and Semiramis established themselves as the gods Marduk and Astarte. The construction of the towers, or ziggurats throughout Mesopotamia was, in some way, connected to this religious system.
There are several versions of how Semiramis got to be the declared mother of god. One of them said that after the death of Nimrod, Semiramis bore a son, Tammuz. Since she could not have conceived the child from the dead Nimrod, she proclaimed it to have been a miracle conception and that Tammuz was Marduk reborn.
Semiramis was first included in the pagan trinity as the holy spirit or seed of the divine son in the mother's womb. Later, however, the father's position as a god figure was diminished and the center of worship became the image of the mother with the god-incarnate son in her arms.
The worship of mother and child quickly spread throughout the known world. Ancient Germans worshipped the virgin Hertha with child in arms. Scandinavians called her Disa. The Egyptian mother was Isis with the infant Horus. In India the mother Devaki bore the child Krishna.
The image of the mother with child in her arms became so firmly entrenched in the pagan mind that it was quickly adopted by the Roman Catholic Church after Christianity arrived.

THE CATHOLIC AND GLOBAL ELITISTS' (ILLUMINATI) CONNECTION
French philosopher Voltaire (1694-1778), a Satanic revolutionary and Illuminati, wrote in a letter
to King Frederick II, ("the Great"), prince-elector of the Holy Roman Empire:
"Lastly, when the whole body of the Church should be sufficiently weakened and infidelity strong enough, the final blow (is) to be dealt by the sword of open, relentless persecution. A reign of terror (is) to be spread over the whole earth, and...continue while any Christian should be found
obstinate enough to adhere to Christianity."
IN TODAY'S TECHNOLOGICALLY ADVANCED WORLD...
...TERRORISM IS SIMPLY MISDIRECTION AT THE EXPENSE OF HUMAN LIFE...
... DEPLETION OF RESOURCES IS CORPORATE GREED AND CONTROL...
AND CHAOS AND COMPLACENCY BREED LACK OF FAITH IN GOD'S WORD...
PLEASE GET RIGHT WITH THE LORD, AND DO NOT TAKE THE MARK OF THE BEAST!
Ephesians 6:14 (New King James Version)
14 Stand therefore, having girded your waist with truth, having put on the breastplate of righteousness,
Matthew 5:44 (New King James Version)
44 But I say to you, love your enemies, bless those who curse you, do good to those who hate you, and pray for those who spitefully use you and persecute you,
Mark 4:18-19 (New King James Version)
18 Now these are the ones sown among thorns; they are the ones who hear the word, 19 and the cares of this world, the deceitfulness of riches, and the desires for other things entering in choke the word, and it becomes unfruitful.
