Abomination of Desolation

Is Zeus in the Bible?

Excerpted from The “Immortals” Movie: War of the Gods – Preparation for Antichrist October 30, 2011 By

In the film, Immortals, Zeus is the good God who selects Theseus to lead the defense of humanity against Hyperion. Interestingly, there appears to be a subtle reference to Zeus in the book of Revelation … In this book, John records … seven letters to Christian churches (in Asia Minor: modern-day Turkey) one to the church in Pergamos:

12And to the angel of the church in Pergamos write; … 13 I know thy works, and where thou dwellest, even where Satan’s seat is: and thou holdest fast my name, and hast not denied my faith, even in those days wherein Antipas was my faithful martyr, who was slain among you, where Satan dwelleth.

“Satan’s seat” has been interpreted by many scholars to be a direct reference to the Pergamom Altar, a massive structure built in Pergamos, Greece in the 2nd Century BC (on the west coast of Asia Minor) as a tribute to the god Zeus. In the passage above,  Jesus is identifying Zeus as Satan and the altar in Pergamos was his chief base of operation. …

The Altar, which was made to resemble a throne, was built by Eumenes II, a ruler in the Seleucid empire. It is interesting to note that Eumenes II appointed Antiochus Epiphanes to rule over the Jews in Judea at that same time. (Antiochus put down the Maccabean revolt, which occurred there during his rule.) Antiochus Epiphanes is infamous for the original “abomination of desolation” in which he entered the Holy Temple of Jerusalem and offered a pig as a sacrifice in honor of Zeus. … Jesus prophesied that a similar act of blasphemy against God will be performed by the Antichrist in the temple during the end times Great Tribulation. Not only will the antichrist enter the temple of God, he will declare that he is god and demand worship from the world. The Bible says he: “Who opposeth and exalteth himself above all that is called God, or that is worshipped; so that he as God sitteth in the temple of God, shewing himself that he is God. ” (2 Thessalonians 2:4)

In 1881, German archeologists excavated the altar and purchased it from the then-ruling Ottoman Empire. To this day, it has been reconstructed and kept in the Berlin Museum. Adolph Hitler (who unbeknownst to many, was a  black magic occultist) once in power decades later, was obsessed with the altar. He even had a reconstruction of the Altar built to use as the basis of the design for the Zeppelintribüne, the giant stage from which he delivered many of his speeches and led rallies.

Another interesting feature of the altar is a the Gigantomachy frieze, a 371-foot long sculptural frieze, that runs along the base of the altar, depicting the war of Zeus, with an army of half-human giants, fighting against his father and the older gods. … The frieze even depicts the giants as being part-serpent …

The True Final Battle of The Gods

There is indeed going to be one more battle among the angelic realm and God – the battle of Armageddon. The Bible prophesies that the Antichrist will gather armies from among the nations of the world to wage war against Jesus Christ Himself.  It will be the last ditch effort of “the gods” to hold onto the power that they were temporarily granted …

===============================================

(The excellent book, God’s War on Terror, by Shoebat and Richardson, 2010 – for info, contact walid@shoebat.com – does not touch on nephelim or giants. But it does expand what we have just seen on the abomination of desolation.)

The Romans also worshipped Zeus under the name “Jupiter”. There is significant evidence to view the Allah of the Muslims as the Arab counterpart to Baal, Sin, Zeus, or Jupiter. In pre-Islamic times, Allah-worship, as well as the worship of Baal, were both astral religions in the sense that they involved the worship of the sun, the moon, and the stars. …

Not only does Jesus equate Zeus (or Jupiter) with Satan, but he also states that Satan’s “throne”, or spiritual base, was geographically located in Turkey. As unusual as this may sound, Satan may actually establish a geographical stronghold or a spiritual capital of sorts.  This is not surprising. As late as the 19th century, this throne remained in Turkey, also the location of the capital of the Ottoman Empire. Beyond this, Pergamum was relatively close to Ionia (roughly one hundred miles north). All factors considered, this passage, by naming Turkey as the location of Satan’s throne, also confirms Turkey’s significant role in the Last-Days Antichrist Empire. (pgs 426,427)
