On January 20, 2001, President George W. Bush during his first inaugural address faced the obelisk known as the Washington Monument and twice referred to an angel that “rides in the whirlwind and directs this storm.” His reference was credited to Virginia statesman John Page who wrote to Thomas Jefferson after the Declaration of Independence was signed, saying, “We know the race is not to the swift nor the battle to the strong. Do you not think an angel rides in the whirlwind and directs this storm?”
Five weeks after the inaugural, on Wednesday, February 28, Congressman Major R. Owens of New York stood before the House of Representatives and prayed to the “Angel in the Whirlwind.” He asked the spiritual force to guide the future and fate of the United States. Twenty-eight weeks later (for a total of 33 weeks from the inaugural—a number invaluable to mysticism and occult fraternities), nineteen Islamic terrorists (according to the official story) attacked the United States, hijacking four commercial airliners and crashing two of them into the Twin Towers of the World Trade Center in New York City, a third into the Pentagon, and a fourth, which had been directed toward Washington, DC, crashed near Shanksville, Pennsylvania. What happened that day resulted in nearly 3000 immediate deaths, at least two-dozen missing persons, and the stage being set for changes to the existing world order….
Invitation to angels by elected officials combined with passive civilian conformity is key to opening doorways for supernatural agents to engage social governance. This is a classic tenet of demonology. Spirits go where they are invited, whether to possess an individual or to take dominion over a region. One could contend therefore that starting in 2001, the United States became so disposed in following and not challenging unprecedented changes to longstanding U.S. policies including the Christian rules for just war, that a powerful force known to the Illuminati as the “Moriah Conquering Wind,” a.k.a. “the Angel in the Whirlwind” accepted the administration’s invitation and enthroned itself in the nation’s capital. Immediately after, it cast its eyes on the ancient home of the Bab-Illi, Babylon, where the coveted “Gate of the Illi” had opened once before.[i]
The occult realm seeks always to imitate God’s abilities through magical rituals and esoteric knowledge. Here, the heavenly portal opened only at the will of God Almighty that is called a “whirlwind” in 2 Kings is imitated by fallen angels and corrupt men in a twisted call to action. The Moriah Conquering Wind is the key to opening the Abyss. There is a reason that God prohibits communing with the dead and the fallen—because summoning the whirlwind (that is trying to open the Einstein-Rosen Bridge) from this side will only lead to the opening of Hell itself. It’s like the old story of the lady or the tiger, in which a man is given the choice of two doors. Behind one is a beautiful, voluptuous woman who will fulfill his every desire. Behind the other is a ravenous tiger that will tear him to shreds and devour him.
The Illuminati have foolishly been trying to open the Abyss since the days of Nimrod. Those who do so believe that eternal life and ultimate power and knowledge await them on the other side, but you and I know better. Instead of slaking their thirst for power, the entities on the other side of the portal—when opened—will devour them one by one. The ancient goddess Ishtar sometimes called Inanna or Semiramis was often depicted riding a tiger. Just this past Sunday, during the Super Bowl halftime, Katy Perry—the musical equivalent of a modern-day goddess—entered the arena astride a massive, animated “tiger” with red eyes. This event—like so many others staged in music videos and on award shows—may well have been orchestrated by human/demonic alliances that use such spectacles as secret rituals intended to force the opening of the door.
Katy Perry rode the tiger—seeming to provide both the lady and the beast. The Illuminati believe they can “tame” whatever comes through the portal, but only God controls the whirlwinds and all that pass through them. The tiger will only enter when God permits it.
And then Hell will enter our space/time continuum.
Now, whenever I bring up the topic of biblical gateways and portals, the first incident most colleagues mention is the Babylon gateway that Nimrod attempted to build. Let’s take a look at the passage that describes this foolish attempt to unseal the Abyss. We find it in Genesis 11:
And the whole earth was of one language, and of one speech.
And it came to pass, as they journeyed from the east, that they found a plain in the land of Shinar; and they dwelt there.
And they said one to another, Go to, let us make brick, and burn them throughly. And they had brick for stone, and slime had they for morter.
And they said, Go to, let us build us a city and a tower, whose top may reach unto heaven; and let us make us a name, lest we be scattered abroad upon the face of the whole earth.
And the Lord came down to see the city and the tower, which the children of men builded.
And the Lord said, Behold, the people is one, and they have all one language; and this they begin to do: and now nothing will be restrained from them, which they have imagined to do.
Go to, let us go down, and there confound their language, that they may not understand one another’s speech.
So the Lord scattered them abroad from thence upon the face of all the earth: and they left off to build the city.
Therefore is the name of it called Babel; because the Lord did there confound the language of all the earth: and from thence did the Lord scatter them abroad upon the face of all the earth. (Genesis 11:1–9)
Assuming they even teach this event, most pastors and Bible study leaders today would either allegorize or at least downplay the clash at Babylon between God and humanity, but this is a disservice to their students. I wrote a series of articles about ten years ago about this very event. Titled “Stargates, Ancient Rituals, and Those Invited through the Portal”, where I built upon the fine research by our dearly departed brother and semiotics genius, David Flynn:
In his seminal opus Cydonia: The Secret Chronicles of Mars, Flynn connected Nimrod’s construction of the Tower of Babel to the rebel planet Mars:
Nimrod…. a giant of the race of Nephilim… authored the plan for the tower…. [and was] associated in myth with Nergal, the Babylonian God of Mars… The Tower of Babel was a tower to Mars.
Symbolism used by the mystery schools illuminated the writings of Italian poet Dante, who wrote of the connections between the Tower of Babel, Giants and Mars. Intriguingly, Dante identified Mars with Satan. Paradiso Canto IX:127-142:
Florence, the city founded by Mars, that Satan who first turned his back on his Maker, and from whose envy such great grief has come, coins and spreads that accursed lily flower, that has sent the sheep and lambs astray, since it has made a wolf of the shepherd.
The ancient Cabiri (Gibborim) who built Cyclopean walls and megalithic fortresses took many forms, but they all originated from the same place. They came down from heaven to the earth. According to ancient Sumerian myth, when Nergal the God of Mars was ejected from heaven he descended with…demons….
Thus not only was Nimrod a Nephilim…not only did he design the Tower of Babel (“gate of the Gods”)…not only was he associated with Mars and built the tower of Babel to the rebel prison planet… but he, like other giants, was daimonic (demonic) in origin. The significance of this cannot be overlooked. Babel was a Nephilim gateway and it is prophesied to be the future location from which “gates” open and “giants” return. (emphasis added)
The Lord inspired Moses to write about this epic event, and the description and hidden clues offer just enough information to discern many truths about Babel. This was not merely a tower intended to reach heaven due to its height. This was a Stargate, whose design was inspired by forbidden knowledge. Nimrod had deciphered the secret to unlocking a portal—an Einstein-Rosen Bridge that would lead to the heights once envied by Satan: the Sides of the North—the Heavenly Throne.
It must also be noted that Nimrod is the template for a panoply of “dying gods” worshiped under the names Osiris (a play possibly on Asshur, which may be another name for Nimrod, the Assyrian), Heracles, Horus, Tammuz, Mithras, Cernunnos, Marduk, and perhaps even King Arthur (the once and future king). When the languages were confused at the tower, the bewildered builders and terrified citizens, who no doubt believed Nimrod to be a god who would bring more gods to their city and recreate the “golden age” spoken of by their ancestors, took the story and told it with variations upon the names, seeding the legend of the “dying god” throughout all civilizations of the world. All the legends end with a promise that their god(s) would return in the final days and inaugurate a new age.
Nimrod’s Stargate was probably located directly over Enki’s abode, the Abzu (Abyss), said to be a freshwater lake deep within the earth. The Mighty Hunter Nimrod, along with the combined efforts of the “one mind” of mankind, used fallen angel technology and nearly opened the Abyss—but the Lord intervened personally, an extremely rare event, because the Abyss must and will remain closed until the Lord permits it to be opened. And we who live in these days—days that fit the bill for the “last days” read about the modern technology and foolish experiments (CERN, for instance) that may serve as parts of the final “key” to unlocking this hideous hell-hole. The next chapter will go into the historical basis for how this all could come to pass.

Babylon: Gate of the Gods or Doorway to Destruction?
Located on the bank of Euphrates River, Babylon was the most famous eastern city of antiquity, and also was the consummate representation of wickedness in sacred Scripture. As Israel’s tormentor, abductor, devastator, and eventual home in exile, Babylon was used by God in Scripture to bring devastating judgment on other nations (e.g., Jeremiah 21:2–10 and 25:8–11).[ii] The name “Mystery Babylon” ascribed to the great harlot of the Apocalypse embodies the seductiveness of worldly spirituality enslaved to affluence and pleasure (Revelation 18:11–19). She defiantly “rides the beast” or gains authority from her association with the Antichrist—the Man of Sin (2 Thessalonians 2:3). The saccharine wine sloshing from her golden cup of abominations “made all the earth drunken: The nations have drunken of her wine; Therefore the nations are mad” (Jeremiah 51:7). While Babylon as an apocalyptic symbol transcends a geopolitical location, we suggest that “preternatural Babylon” will still assault Israel from the deserts of Iraq as an initial part of God’s judgment during the Day of the Lord.
But how did the preternatural aspects of this strategic location begin?
Fourteen to twenty centuries before the Persians, Greeks, and Romans rewrote the earliest myths into their own creation accounts, the ancient land of Sumer (known as Shinar and later Babylon) produced original accounts by scribes who detailed how certain “gods” descended from Heaven—sometimes in “flying” machines and sometimes through magical doorways associated with specific mountains. These stories were pressed onto Sumerian cuneiform clay tablets using pictographs and other symbols to produce the first known system of writing and recordkeeping. The fantastic encounters told of how visits by the “gods” led to advanced scientific and arcane knowledge, which later was codified in the Babylonian Mysteries and worship of Ishtar, Tammuz, Ashtaroth, and various Baals. Most scholars today recognize numerous parallels between Sumerian accounts of creation and the arrival of the “gods” with the biblical stories of Creation and the fall of Lucifer and later incursion of the Watchers. For example, the struggle between Lucifer against God is turned topsy-turvy in one famous Sumerian epic in which a struggle unfolds between the “ruler of the heavens” versus the “power of the air.” This occurs in early Sumerian mythology after Enki, the god of wisdom and water, created the human race out of clay. It then appears that Anu, who was at first the most powerful of the Sumerian gods and the “ruler of the heavens,” is superseded in power and popularity by Enlil, the “god of the air.” To the Christian mind, this can easily be perceived as nothing less than Satan, the god of the air, continuing his pretense to the throne of God and his usurpation of Yahweh—“the Lord of the heavens.” It also indicates an effort on the part of Satan and his angels to trick pagan Sumerians into perceiving them as the “supreme” gods (above the God of Heaven) and worthy of adoration.
Another example of this pattern is found in the legend called “Enumaelish,” in which Marduk, the great god of the city of Babylon, is exalted above the benevolent gods and extolled as the creator of the world. The symbol of Marduk is a dragon (as is Satan in Revelation 12:9) called the Muscrussu, whose fable appears to contain several distortions of the important elements of the biblical account of Creation.
Genesis chapter 6, as well as numerous biblical apocrypha, affirms this story of beings that descended from Heaven to represent themselves as gods. Such ancient testaments include Enoch, Jubilees, Baruch, Genesis Apocryphon, Philo, Josephus, and various other olden records. The Hebrews themselves referred to these so-called gods as fallen Benei ha-Elohim (sons of God) who most notoriously mingled with humans, giving birth to part-celestial, part-terrestrial hybrids called Nephilim.
The other thing that stands out in the Sumerian texts as well as in later Greek and Roman mythologies (the Arcadian myths) is the desperate quest by post-Flood civilizations to regain the knowledge of these “gods” after it was lost in the epic of the deluge. According to the earliest writings, this included angelic technology bordering on “magic.” The Book of Enoch (read by all the early church theologians, including Justin Martyr, Clemens of Alexandria, Origin, Irenaeus, Tertullian, Eusebius, Jerome, and Augustine, to name just a few, as well as quoted by the disciples and still included in some versions of the Bible today) tells of one of these flying “gods” (a fallen Watcher named Semjaza) who taught “enchantments.” Another called Baraqijal taught the power of astrology; Azael taught weaponry; Araqiel, Shamsiel, and Sariel instructed on observations of the earth, sun, and the moon; and so on. From these secrets, men learned to advance war while women learned to use “charms and enchantments” to allure the giants themselves into their beds in order to propagate even more genetic atrocities. And this—the role of genetic manipulation—was central to what these “gods” were up to and ultimately why God destroyed all but Noah’s family in the Flood. Indeed, the Bible describes the cause of the Flood as happening in response to “all flesh” having become “corrupted, both man and beast.”
But did the secrets of the Watchers also include something even more fanciful? Something the post-Flood survivors desperately desired to reclaim? Angelic secrets of transdimensional locations and navigation, which existed before most life on earth was destroyed by water? Is that what was being constructed by Nimrod on the plains of Shinar? Could it be that by the time God responded to the tower’s building, it had been concluded to such a phase that post-Flood giants were coming through the gateway (which Isaiah says they wait behind in that same location [more on that later]) to be reintroduced into our world? Is that how giants were on the earth before and after the Flood, and why God descended to disperse the building of the “tower” shortly thereafter?
After the flood waters abated, the sons of Noah would have moved to quickly reestablish society. While the children of Shem populated the Middle and Far East, and Jepheth developed the Eurasian and Greco-Roman geography, the land of Shinar would become the settlement efforts of Ham and his son Canaan (Genesis 11:1–2). This is where Nimrod, described in the oldest literature as a giant, would ultimately rise to become a “mighty” hunter before God and the first ruler of Babylon. This is recorded in the Bible this way:
And Cush begat Nimrod: he began to be a mighty one in the earth.
He was a mighty hunter before the Lord: wherefore it is said, Even as Nimrod the mighty hunter before the Lord.
And the beginning of his kingdom was Babel, and Erech, and Accad, and Calneh, in the land of Shinar. (Genesis 10:8–10)
The name “Babylon” is derived from the Greek form of the name based on the Akkadian plural form Bāb-ilāni “gate of gods.”[iii] In sharp contrast to its inherently divine claim, the ancient Hebrews used it in a polemic fashion: “Therefore is the name of it called Babel; because the Lord did there confound [balal] the language of all the earth” (Genesis 11:9). In a sarcastic way, this verse links the name of the city, Babel, with the Hebrew verb balal, which means “to confuse, to mix, to mingle.”[iv] Missed in English translation, God is inspiring Moses to taunt, “You claim to be the ‘gate of the gods,’ but you are really only the gate to confusion.” The intentional wordplay is a scriptural “face palm” directed toward Babylon.
The ziggurat at Babylon was known formally as Etemenanki, “The House of the Foundation-Platform of Heaven and Earth.”[v] The word “ziggurat” is derived from the Akkadian ziqqurratu, “temple tower,” a noun derived from zaqāru, “to build high.”[vi] The Babylonians and their predecessors, the Sumerians, believed in many heavens and earths. For example, Sumerian incantations of the second millennium BC refer to seven heavens and seven earths possibly created by seven generations of gods.[vii] Given seven heavens is a part of religious cosmology found in Judaism and Islam, the Sumerian tradition is surprisingly obscure. In the Sumerian myth, “Inanna’s descent to the underworld,” the “Queen of Heaven” Inanna passes through a total of seven gates, each one exacting a price in divine powers. The sevenfold structure is displayed when the gatekeeper was instructed to “let the seven gates of the underworld be bolted.”[viii]
Like most people in the ancient world and even today, the Sumerians considered mountains to be the link between the heavens and earth. In Tablet 9 of the standard version of the Epic of Gilgamesh, Mashuis a great cedar-forested mountain. Apparently, this sacred mountain spans from the heavens to the underworld. Tablet 9 of the epic reads, “Then he reached Mount Mashu, which daily guards the rising and setting of the Sun, above which only the dome of the heavens reaches, and whose flank reaches as far as the Netherworld below, there were Scorpion beings watching over its gate.”[ix] Because the word “Mashu” comes from the Akkadian for “twins,” it may translate as “two mountains.”[x] We suggest the approximate location between two mountains suitable for being called a “cedar land” was the forest between Mount Lebanon and Mount Hermon (whose name means “Forbidden Place”)—the portal of the Watchers’ initial descent and netherworld imprisonment, according to the ancient Book of Enoch (also of interest, as most high-level Freemasons know, this location from which the founders of their order descended sits 33degrees east longitude and 33degrees north latitude of the Paris Zero Meridian!).
Like a man-made mountain, the ziggurat was a portal—a gateway between Heaven and earth. For example, the city-gate of Ninurta was called “lofty-city-gate-of-heaven-and earth,”[xi] the ziggurat at Larsa, “The House of the Link between Heaven and Earth,” and Borsippa, “The House of the Seven Guides of Heaven and Earth” and Asshur, The “House of the Mountain of the Universe.”[xii] These were all megalithic structures that shared the ill-conceived desire to build a “stairway to heaven” like the prototype mentioned in Genesis 11:4.
