The above article title is taken from verses of Holy Scripture written in the Book of The Apocalypse or Book of The Revelation of John as given to him by Yashua Messiah:
Revelation 11:8-9 (KJV) And their dead bodies shall lie in the street of The Great City, which spiritually is called Sodom and Egypt, where also our Lord was crucified. 9 And they of the people and kindreds and tongues and nations shall see their dead bodies three days and an half, and shall not suffer their dead bodies to be put in graves.
Now these Holy Scriptures are an integral part of the short narrative about the preaching, teaching activities and bravery of The Two Witnesses in The Last Days of The Last Days. Here we can see that after the completion of their work for Yashua Messiah they are both dead with their bodies lying in the street, of The Great City having been killed by The Devil himself. This is due to the fact that no one else was powerful enough to silence them. This tells us that such is going to be their Holy Spiritual Power. I say “going to be” because this event is still future, so don’t believe anyone who says otherwise.
However, I am not getting into the who’s, whys and wherefores of The Two Witnesses and their identities, as I do not know who they are, but what I do know is the identity of The Great City which is SPIRITUALLY called SODOM and EGYPT where Yashua Messiah (the Lord Jesus Christ) was crucified.
Now obviously many will, and do, claim that The Great City is Jerusalem, but is this correct? Let’s see if it stacks up. The first question we must ask is where, exactly, was Yashua Messiah crucified? Was it actually in Jerusalem? No, not at all, it was outside the gates of the city at a location called “The Place of a Skull.” We must understand that once outside the city walls of ancient cities you were no longer in that city.
Moreover, there was a law at that time of both The Canaanite Jews and The Romans that no executions could take place within the city walls of their cities. Executions always had to take place without the city walls and so it was that within close proximity to Jerusalem there was this place called The Place of A Skull where executions took place. This place called The Place of A Skull was otherwise referred to as Calvary by the Cainite-Judeo-Christian Religion, and that word comes from the Latin words ‘Calvaria’ or ‘Calvi capitis’. These words carry with them a certain significance which I will return to later.
Here are the three verses of Holy Scripture that refer to this place outside Jerusalem’s city walls called: “The Place of A Skull,” also known as Golgotha which, according to Adam Clarke’s commentary, is from the Hebrew word ‘Golgoleth’.
Matthew 27:33 (KJV) And when they were come unto a place called Golgotha, that is to say, A Place of a Skull.
Mark 15:22 (KJV) And they bring Him unto the place Golgotha, which is, being interpreted, The Place of a Skull.
John 19:17 (KJV) And He bearing His cross went forth into a place called The Place of a Skull, which is called in the Hebrew Golgotha.
Luke’s account is slightly different and only makes mention of the Latin based word Calvary:
Luke 23:33 (KJV) And when they were come to the place, which is called Calvary, (‘Calvaria’ or ‘Calvi capitis’). there they crucified Him, and the malefactors, one on the right hand, and the other on the left. (Brackets mine)
OK, so if The Great City is not Jerusalem, which city is John referring to, because we can be 100% sure it’s not literally Golgotha because Golgotha was just a bare hilly knoll outside Jerusalem with no city on it at all, so what’s going on? SPIRITUALITY is going on and the word ‘SPIRITUALLY’ is the most crucial word in this verse of Revelation 11.
Let’s be clear, we are not talking about a literal Sodom, nor a literal Egypt, but a SPIRITUAL Sodom and a SPIRITUAL Egypt and it’s all in the future, for today and the near future. Let me repeat that in other words and let it also be clear in our minds that John is definitely not speaking about the first century but, rather, the 21st century where we will find an active spiritual Sodom and an active spiritual Egypt all combined within a Great City where The Two Witnesses are slain and lying dead in the street of that city.
We now move on to the slightly more illusive SPIRITUAL location of where our Lord, Yashua Messiah was crucified and we really need to grasp this point, because Jerusalem is out of the equation for two reasons: 1) as shown, Yashua Messiah was not crucified there and 2) Jerusalem is not a great city and it never was. It will be in the future when the New Jerusalem comes down out of heaven, but not until then.
So what is The Great City? Easy, The Book of Revelation tells us and it tells us eight times. Here are just three examples:
Rev 14:8 (KJV) And there followed another angel, saying, Babylon is fallen, is fallen, that Great City, because she made all nations drink of the wine of the wrath of her fornication.
Rev 17:18 (KJV) And the woman which thou sawest is that Great City, which reigneth over the kings of the earth.
Rev 18:10 (KJV) Standing afar off for the fear of her torment, saying, Alas, alas, that Great City Babylon, that mighty city! for in one hour is thy judgment come.
So here we have the Scriptural and SPIRITUAL Great City and there is only one scriptural and spiritual Great City, folks, not two or three scriptural and spiritual Great Cities, nor is it Jerusalem, it’s BABYLON!! The thing is, how can it be Babylon? Wasn’t Babylon totally destroyed by The Persians circa 515 BC? Yes it was, but it did not die because SPIRITUALLY The Persians kept it alive until they were conquered and then The Greeks kept it alive until they were conquered and finally by The Romans who kept it alive, followed by the unholy religious Romans – The Roman Cult, who continues to keep it alive to this day – BABYLON IS STILL HERE TODAY AND IS VERY MUCH ALIVE AND KICKING, FOLKS!!!
Needless-to-say, Revelation 11:8 refers to spiritual Sodom and spiritual Egypt, NOT spiritual Babylon. So how does Babylon become Sodom and Egypt as well? Easy, because we’re dealing with spiritual wickedness, Babylon, Sodom and Egypt were/are the total summation of satanic spiritual wickedness – Babylon with its mysticism, sorceries, divinations and psychopathic merciless brutality. Sodom with it’s sexual sadistic perversions and its cruelty to visiting strangers and Egypt with its heathen polytheism – the trinity deity, sun worship (solstices), obelisks, fertility rites and its all enveloping idolatry. These three places in history were/are the most satanic, debauched, diabolical, heathen, evil and savage places on the face of this earth and because they were/are the summation of all the earth’s evil they qualify for being the place where Yashua Messiah symbolically was crucified.
We must remember, too, that Golgotha, just outside Jerusalem’s city walls, was really just another outpost of Roman/Babylonian Empire and it was not controlled by the Canaanite Jews and their Pharisee and Sadducee masters. Pontius Pilate, as the Procurator Fiscal, was a direct administrative and military representative of Caesar and he was like a king’s ambassador in the Roman/Babylonian province of Judea.
As a relevant aside the title Procurator Fiscal is still an official office in the so called British ‘Crown Office’ in Scotland today. Just to let us know that Rome/Babylon is still very much alive and operational in 21st century Britain.
So what am I saying? I am saying that although Yashua Messiah was crucified in place called Judea in the Middle East, it was really in Rome/Babylon at a place called Golgotha – A Place of A Skull. Moreover, if we return to where I mentioned Calvary as the other name for The Place of A Skull we will begin to see where the symbolism really starts to kick in. In order to reveal this symbolism I will copy the Greek MSS transliteral version of two of the above verses so that we can see:
John 19:17 (Greek Transliteral) And bearing the pale (cross) of-Him He-out-came into the being-said of-skull (kraniou) place which is-being-said to-Hebrew Golgotha.
Luke 23:33 first part (Greek Transliteral) And when they-from-came on the place the being-called skull (kranion) there they impale Him etc. etc.
I have used the Greek MSS transliteral in order to reveal that the word Calvary as used in Luke’s Gospel is the more accurate translation than Skull because it refers to the word ‘kranion’ or ‘kraniou’ as in John’s Gospel. From these Greek words we get our English word cranium which is at the TOP of our skulls. This, too, is what was being alluded to in all four Gospels not a whole skull inclusive of jaw bones and teeth, just the cranium.
Furthermore, from the “Golgotha Rediscovered” web page we learn that Golgotha was more than just The Place of a Skull. More accurately it was The Place of a Skull Cap or cranium (kranion), and the photographs on the “Golgotha Rediscovered” web page will bear me out on this. This crucial revelation is telling us that it was the minds of those that reside beneath skull caps that brought about the crucifixion of Yashua Messiah.
So who were these people? The Babylonish Canaanite Romans and The Babylonian Talmudic Canaanite Jews and even today the cardinals and rabbis of both these satanic religious cults wear skull caps. They both have their own names, too, for this particular type of head wear, but they are both the same to look at and both cover their craniums (kranions). The Canaanite Jew rabbis call theirs the ‘Yarmulke’ and Roman Cult call theirs the ‘Zucchetto’.
Now that’s all fine and dandy I hear you say, but what about this Great City of Babylon/Rome ‘cos you won’t find many rabbis there will you? Well that’s true to a point, but nothing is quite as simple as it seems. Today The Roman Cult is not what it was since Vatican II and it has been heavily infiltrated by Canaanite Jews, especially the so called Society of Jesus (The Jesuits). This mingling of the two sects is explained in Daniel chapter 2 with the imagery of King Nebuchadnezzar’s Image.
This great image had legs of Iron which represented Rome in all its guises, both ancient and unholy modern, but when we get to the feet and toes of this image we find the Iron is weakened by the mingling of Miry Clay i.e. The Canaanite Jews being the Miry Clay with the Roman Iron. This means we have a mingling of the two sects both with their skull caps. We must understand that these two satanic religions are far more closely intertwined than many realise – proving that The Devil is not divided.
Now many will say, come off it, you’re joking, these two religions hate each other’s guts, which is true to a degree, but they do have one thing very much in common – THEY BOTH HATE YASHUA MESSIAH and True Followers of Yashua Messiah and with a venomous hatred. Now this mutual hatred for True Followers of Yashua Messiah is like a strong bonding adhesive, you know the kind, don’t you? You stick two pieces of material together with this gloop, and it then becomes impossible to pull them apart again, so strong is the bond, and that’s how it is now with these two satanic groups of religious people. They both have a common enemy in Yashua Messiah – The Way and His followers and that has made them forget most of their differences for the time being.
However, are we any nearer to identifying The Great City that is spiritually Babylon, Sodom and Egypt? Yes, of course, it has to be Rome or better The Vatican City State in Rome which is Spiritual Babylon. It is the capital city of the Skull Cap where Yashua Messiah was Spiritually crucified i.e. by those whose descendants now wear Skull Caps – both Jewish and Papist – The Place of a Skull (Kranion) – SPIRITUAL GOLGOTHA.
Don’t forget, too, that Rome/Babylon is The Great City that claimed the lives of thousands of saints, including Peter and Paul and it will take the lives of The Two Witnesses, but only for three and a half days when they will be miraculously resurrected from the dead and raised in power to be with Yashua Messiah and the rest of The Saints for all eternity.
