Mary apparitions may be the deception that unifies world religions into becoming the Harlot of Revelation

On February 27, 2009 · 13 Comments

The excerpts of the article I quoted are from an article on “The Coming One World Religion, by Jim Simmons. I think in his article he has done an excellent job of communicating the Hallmarks of the false religious system called the Great Harlot in Revelation.

He like Roger Oakland and myself and some others believe that Mary apparitions will be a major unifier of the world religions. We know the apparitions and the messages will not be from Mary because the messages contradict what God says in the Bible. I believe the apparition is the same Queen of Heaven demonic being that God condemned in the Old Testament. The message coming from this being is a works theology and is a message of religious pluralism and Universalism.

Think about it… Catholicism in practice today already makes Mary the intermediary between God and man in place of Jesus. Most Muslims also hold Mary in higher esteem than they do Jesus. Also Eastern religions, New Agers and native religion pagans would not have a problem with a Queen of Heaven spirit leading man into a new spiritual paradigm. Even many liberal Protestants have bought into the mother God concept or Gaia the mother spirit of the earth.

So there is a real likelihood that at a time when the world is in turmoil and in world war and everything looks hopeless. An apparition disguised as Mary appears with signs and wonders and a message claiming that people of all religions must unite on love, peace, universalism, tolerance and good works or else there is no hope for the survival of the human race.

Most Catholics will buy into it immediately especially if it occurs during a major world war between the West and Islam. I think most in Islam will buy into it as well for peace, as will all the other major religions of the world. All religious doctrine would then be rewritten to remove anything that offends others so that all religion worship the same Universal God of love, peace and tolerance. They will condemn many religious teachings and all documents that support these teachings will be destroyed.

This world religion would be headed by the Vatican of course. Other world religions will either be incorporated into this great Harlot out of Rome or be an associate member. The Vatican already has an advisory role in the UN and has embassies in most nations as if it was a religious state. When world leaders feel that a universal religion becomes the only hope left for world peace all these pieces will rapidly come together.

This one world religious system will be the Harlot who rides the Beast/Antichrist into power. This is spoken of in Revelation Chapter 17. But when the Antichrist takes power at the mid tribulation point he will turn against the Harlot and destroy the Harlot and this all-paths religion. He will claim that he alone is God. He will then demand worship from everyone on earth. All those who resist will be killed.

Jan Markell also has similar thoughts about the New Age and Mary in this new article.

The Coming One World Religion, by Jim Simmons ~ Bible Prophecy Today

The Last Generation briefly covered all three pillars of a united world system that will need to be in place by or immediately following the beginning of the seven-year tribulation period. The three pillars are:

* One World Government
* One World Economy
* One World Religion

The pillar of the One World Government was given the most attention in the first article.

The focus of this article is to expand on the pillar of the coming One World Religion.

Today, in this generation, we have seen the foundation being laid for a one-world religion. This world religion is symbolized in Scripture by “… the great harlot who sits on many waters” (Revelation 17:1) and by the “… woman sitting on a scarlet beast, full of blasphemous names …” (Revelation 17:3).

There needs to be a common denominator between Muslims and the one-world religion. This common denominator may very well be Mary, the mother of Jesus. The Koran exalts Mary, not Jesus. The Roman Catholics also exalts Mary. This along with the numerous alleged apparitions of Mary witnessed by both Muslims and Catholics creates a link between the two religions. These two religions together take in a sizeable portion of the human race.

The Marian apparitions, including the ones in Egypt and Africa, have an underlying message. According to Mary, this message is, “All religions are the same. We are the ones causing division.” This message is easily identified under the third hallmark of a false religion, namely, “Provides a Broad Road to Salvation.” Mary’s message is proven invalid because it contradicts Scripture. The only way to God is through Jesus (John 14:6). Since it is clearly demonstrated to be a false message, we can conclude that Mary, the mother of Jesus, was not the one delivering the message. Mary would never contradict her Son.

According to a British-Catholic magazine, “A Marian revival is spreading throughout Africa with alleged apparitions of Mary, finding a following among the Muslims.” Although African Muslims are supposedly seeing apparitions of the Virgin Mary, they “are not required to become Christians to follow her.”

Most of the spectators who witnessed the Marian apparitions in Zeitoun, Egypt, were Muslim. This apparition of Mary appeared for several nights each week for years and was viewed by millions of Muslims.

Mary appears to be the missing link that helps answer the previous question about how the Muslims could ever integrate into a one-world religion.

Here is part II of The coming world religion, by Jim Simmons. This is really astute teaching. It traces Mystery Babylon from Babylon to the Catholic Church and it shows how Mary worship is tied into ancient pagan worship. It also suggests from the non biblical St Malachi prophecy that the next Pope will be the last Pope and that he will reign during the tribulation. That is my understanding of this prophecy as well. Simmons also suggests that the next Pope will be the False Prophet. I think that is a very high probability.

I  learned about these things years ago but Simmons does a wonderful job of putting it all together. I think his book would be well worth reading.

Food for thought – The present Pope is now 81. How much longer will he be around? If it turns out that the next Pope will become the False Prophet at some point also consider that the true Church will be removed in the Rapture at least 3 1/2 years prior to when the False Prophet appears. Time is certainly short.

    I can also see “The Shack” movie fliers stuffed in church bulletins across the country promoting the movie as if it promotes Christianity just like they sell “The Shack” in some Christian bookstores as a Christian book.

    These books and movies are really promoting the coming Antichrist but that is what the Harlot of Revelation does. All new paths other than the true gospel of Christ are leading people to the Antichrist.

  2. JohnNo Gravatar says:

    I agree with this. I also see the Father-goddess creature of The Shack as working toward this. While there is now a lull about this book, just wait until the movie, with all its special effects, comes out.

    People will get their theology from the movie, just as they are from the novel. Goddess worship is here.

    Hi Don! We have been out of state; I can see that you are as busy as ever!! Thanks for the comments about the Pope and the book by Jim Simmons. I am really uneducated on all this stuff, being a Mormon and spending my time tending my family, studying the scriptures and doing genealogy; where does this St Malachi prophecy come from? Never heard of it.
    You said that you think the Rapture will be in 2030, long after we are dead, but now you say that the Rapture will be 3.5 years before the next pope becomes the False Prophet???
    That is kind of hard to guess; it could be anytime, right?
    Mormon theology books go into this stuff too, just not as stridently. The two witnesses are supposed to be Mormons, is what we are told….Shalom, and keep on truckin,’ Brother!

    Hey Don! How about a happy face by my comments?

    I really have no control over your sad face 😛 your face is auto generated by the program for those who do not have their own gavatar. If you want a different face try giving a different email address when you make a comment or go to and make your own.

    The St. Malachi prophecy was discovered in the 16th century and was believed to have been written in the twelfth century. Many people write about it. I first became aware of it in a book called “Catholic Prophecy, by Yves Dupont – copyright 1970 & 1973 by Tan books.

    I never said that the rapture will occur in 2030. I personally think the second coming of Jesus to earth (not the rapture) is somewhere between 2025 and 2040 and the rapture might be at least ten years sooner (I could be wrong). The rapture could happen anytime since no prophecies are required to be fulfilled before the rapture. The idea that many have that the rapture is seven years before the end is based on subjective reasoning, it is not based on any teaching in scripture.

    I also never said the rapture will occur 3.5 year before the next Pope becomes the False prophet. I said that it is possible that it will occur at least 3.5 years before the False Prophet appears. I am not even sure the next Pope will be the False Prophet although I think that it a good possibility. Also, at what point he becomes the False Prophet is impossible to say. The next Pope could be young so there could be a couple of decades before he assumes the role of the False Prophet, if the next Pope is indeed the False Prophet at all.

    The St Malachi prophecy may turn out to be wrong. The only thing going for the prophecy is the previous record. However, the little said about each of the previous Popes is subjective at best.

    Mormon theology where it departs from the Bible is strictly fiction.

    God is so Good brother,

    Your work is vital at this time. With the heavy fog of spiritual confusion blanketing the world we must exercise discernment into the Word of God by the power of the Holy Spirit.

    I have done some research on this issue and have placed my work at the following web link from my investigation called; “A Goddess Called Mary: How the Roman Catholic Church has deceived the world into accepting a Jesus that has denied Himself.”

    My research has pointed to the spirit behind the apparitions of the (RCC) Mary have merely morphed a series of name/titles of ‘goddess’ names that have simply been Luciferian proxy.

    Satan has been the object of worship outright by many of course, but to gain the worship of those who have at least a generic idea of who Christ is, Satan had to have a unifier or a COMMON DENOMINATOR as surmised.

    Here is a portion of the body of work that links the personage/apparition of the (RCC) Mary:

    Semiramis Babylonian B.C. The Queen of Heaven Towers or Obelisks
    Artemis / Diana Ephesus/Asia The Queen of Heaven Moon disc, Crescent bow
    Hera/Juno Roman B.C. Queen, Holy One, Wears a high, cylindrical crown
    Queen of Heaven, Eternal virginity, wore ornate crown
    Ishtar Phonecian Queen of the Universe The dove (Astarte/Asheroth)
    Isis Egyptian B.C. Queen of Heaven, Mother of God Temples, Crown with a lunar orb
    Maya Aztec Moon Virgin, Madonna Dove
    Cybele Greek/Roman C.E. The Great Idaean Mother of the Gods Temple
    Brigid Celtic C.E. Goddess of Earth, Sea and Sky Healing cauldron
    Coyolxauhqui Aztec B.C. Mother Goddess, Moon Virgin, Madonna Dove
    Asheroth Babylonian B.C. Queen of Heaven The Moon
    Astarte Phonecian B.C. Great Mother, The Holy Virgin, Queen Connected with Asheroth/Ishtar
    Aditi Indian The Woman Clothed with the Sun Mother of all the Lights of Heaven

    Titles of Goddess Name Title of RC Mary Common or Shared Symbols
    Virgin goddess of the woods Diana Our Lady of the Woods
    Goddess of the Morning Star Al-Uzza Morning Star Title given to Christ in Revelation 22:16
    A Woman Clothed with the Sun Aditi A Woman Clothed with the Sun
    Queen of the Sea Aphrodite Star of the Sea
    Protectress of Civilized Life Athene Protectress From All Hurt
    Mother of God
    Creatress of the World Hina Queen of Creation
    Queen of Heaven Sharrat Queen of Heaven
    Fatima (Arabian Moon Goddess) Fatima Our Lady of Fatima
    Polynesian Dove Goddess Tangoroa Spotless Dove of Beauty
    Our Lady Ba Alat Our Lady, Gate of Heaven
    Goddess of Wisdom Sophia Mother of Wisdom

    I would love to correspond with you in the future and collaborate on this research. I am the current Director of Defending the Unborn: Pro-Life Ministry as well as The Bodyguard: A Christian Apologetics Ministry.

    This is Divine intervention that I found this site. I have never been near it and I believe so strongly that God is calling His people to spiritual clarity at this time of great delusion.

    God be praised forever and ever and may He bless your work brother.

    Great information Wes.

    I will take a look at your links when I get a bit of time.

    As God will’s brother.

    By the way, if this current pope keeps telling people to convert to follow Christ (i.e. not ‘The Church) it is only going to be a matter of time before the power structure of the Roman Catholic Church offs him in favor of the probable final pope that will bring the full court press for all religious tolerance into one worldly plausible religious system that denies the truth and ushers in a global acceptance of the Antichrist.

    I think God is giving His members a prophetic view into the delusion that is spreading when we look at how an Obama supporter looks at Obama on television or when you listen to an Obama drone talk about him with the complete absence of intellectually honest dialogue about issues that bear importance to the integrity of America.

    Keep up the strong labor of love and know that you are a blessing to many.

  9. ChristianNo Gravatar says:

    I was astonished after reading this Wes. You have done a lot of work on this like brother Don. I am sorry that Don did not respond to you. It appears like you were eager to get his feedback and he never gave it.

  10. DonNo Gravatar says:

    I get thousands of comments. I do not normally respond if I agree with a comment unless someone is asking me for a response. As far as I can tell Wes was providing supporting information on this subject that I agreed with.

    If you are talking about my responding to the information on the links to his website, I have looked at them but discussing the information Wes has on his websites is really beyond the scope of a comment section of a Blog post.

  11. Wes HazlettNo Gravatar says:

    Thank you for the comments. I will check this site a bit more if I have the time.

    Keep up the good work Don. God is good- even if He has removed His hand of protection from America. God has a plan for His members- even if America is in for a horrible future of it’s rebellion to the righteousness of God.

    As a Country founded by the grace of God- we now have a Babylonian footprint upon us. We are reaping what we have sown and we are going to pay dearly as a Country that is ‘unmindful of the Rock that formed it’. We have failed to realize that we were an infant lying in a puddle of blood that God looked upon in mercy saying, ‘LIVE’. We are destined for the judgment of Sodom if we do not humble ourselves, repent, and turn our Country back to the Lord Jesus Christ.

    But we will not unless Christians stop hiding behind ‘Conservatism’ as though it is something that God is glorified in. Western Christianity is repulsive.

    God is good and let us praise Him for how He is destroying fake Christianity in America by His Providence and Sovereignty.

    When you look in the mirror do you see a man or a woman that has been rejected by lukewarm believer’s? or do you see a man or a woman that is ready to face the coming intense persecution from a flood of mockers that God has opened up to America- We have been gutted by the power of the Lord and America’s guts are exposed- the wolves will not spare the flock because we have confused the Gospel of God to those that are without salvation.

    The innards of America are spilling out and God Himself is sending the scent of our blood to unrighteous authority and our enemies because we have rejected His righteous authority and denied place to righteous authority.

    Will we hide behind an ambidextrous Angel of Light’s marionette on the right posing as America’s Savior wrapped in a copy of the U.S Constitution? Will we blame the liberal agenda for murdering babies, defiling Churches, and removing the Ten Commandments from federal buildings? OR WILL WE REPENT AND COME BACK TO THE LORD OF HOSTS?

    God is not only bigger than an antichrist in the white house, He is the one PUT HIM THERE! God sent the delusion to this divided Country because we REFUSE TO ABIDE UNDER HIS RIGHTEOUSNESS. God is the one that SOLD AMERICA because His Members REFUSED to HONOR HIM.

    Osteen’s illusions of Utopian grandeur for the Christian is a lie from the pit of hell. Roman Catholicism, Jehovah’s Witnesses, Mormonism, Scientology, and other multi-billion dollar religious pillars of deception are corrupting the purity of the gospel.

    Everything that is happening in America can be answered by one simple and painful truth. God has turned His face from America- He has removed His hand of protection from this Country because those that claim to know Him have been fearful and full of terror when it comes to sharing the truth in this Country.

    God have mercy upon us poor, naked, and wretched sinners. We have greatly erred.

    A passage from the past about the future of America and let us not forget that God judges Nations DURING the life of that Nation. God creates the life of Nations when they are not yet born, God causes the destruction of Nation’s even in magnanimous opulence. God kills and God makes live. America is in store for a death of epic proportions for how we have went whoring after unrighteousness with a smile on our face in doing it.

    “[13] Yet the LORD testified against Israel, and against Judah, by all the prophets, and by all the seers, saying, Turn ye from your evil ways, and keep my commandments and my statutes, according to all the law which I commanded your fathers, and which I sent to you by my servants the prophets.
    [14] Notwithstanding they would not hear, but hardened their necks, like to the neck of their fathers, that did not believe in the LORD their God.
    [15] And they rejected his statutes, and his covenant that he made with their fathers, and his testimonies which he testified against them; and they followed vanity, and became vain, and went after the heathen that were round about them, concerning whom the LORD had charged them, that they should not do like them.
    [16] And they left all the commandments of the LORD their God, and made them molten images, even two calves, and made a grove, and worshipped all the host of heaven, and served Baal.
    [17] And they caused their sons and their daughters to pass through the fire, and used divination and enchantments, and sold themselves to do evil in the sight of the LORD, to provoke him to anger.
    [18] Therefore the LORD was very angry with Israel, and removed them out of his sight: there was none left but the tribe of Judah only.
    [19] Also Judah kept not the commandments of the LORD their God, but walked in the statutes of Israel which they made.
    [20] And the LORD rejected all the seed of Israel, and afflicted them, and delivered them into the hand of spoilers, until he had cast…
