November 1st is designated by the Roman Catholic church to give honor to all their gods. They call it ‘All Saints Day.’ Did I say gods or saints? In Latin, the two words have the same meaning. Such a play on words! Pantheon means, ‘all gods’. It’s polytheistic or having ‘many gods.’ It is said that a man with many gods has no God. ‘All gods’ was changed to ‘All Saints’ just to fool everybody.
“For all the gods of the nations are idols: but the LORD made the Heavens.”Psalms 96:5
The ancient Roman Pantheon was built to honor the King of all the gods, Jupiter. In the Greek Pantheon he was Zeus. In ancient Persia they had Ahura Mazda as their supreme head. Marduk or Bel/Baal reigned supreme in the Babylonian Pantheon. He was personified as a dragon.
Elijah, where are you?
Elijah posed a question to the people of God:
“How long will you halt between two opinions? if the LORD is God, follow Him: but if Baal, then follow him’. And the people answered him not a word.”1 Kings 18:21
In the minds of the people, these sat as the Supreme Head over their own particular Pantheon. There were twelve gods associated with the twelve months or zodiacal periods of the year and/or the ‘host of heaven’, which included the sun, the moon, and constellations of stars. These were all religions with many gods, whose mythological stories go back, one after the other, to the days of Noah.
When the waters of the Great Deluge dried up, they all left the Ark and spread out upon the face of the earth. Babylon was established by Nimrod, the son of Cush, son of Ham, son of Noah. His son was Marduk. Nimrod tried to have Abraham killed more than once. Abraham was from the line of Shem, son of Noah. Noah and Shem taught Abraham all about the LORD and he walked in all His ways.
“Nimrod did not return to the LORD, but he continued in wickedness and teaching wickedness to the sons of men; and Mardon/Marduk his son was worse than his father, and continued to add to the abominations of his father. And he caused the sons of men to sin. Therefore it is said, from the wicked goes forth wickedness…”The Book of Jasher 11:7-8
The dedication of the name change from ‘The Roman Pantheon‘ to ‘Mary and All the Saints’ came originally on May 13th, the ‘Day of the Dead’ for Rome. This date was eventually changed to November 1st to coincide with the ‘Day of the Dead’ and Halloween or All Hallow’s Eve.
Many years after Noah, Jesus Christ, also of the line of Shem and Abraham, Isaac and Jacob/Israel, came with the message or ‘Good News’ of One God, Father of Israel, Creator of the Heavens and the earth; monotheism. It wasn’t a new idea. It was Abrahamic. ‘Christianity’ is classified as an Abrahamic religion. The truth is that Abraham was monotheistic but he was not religious. He was in fact an iconoclast.
‘If you are Abraham’s children, you would do the works of Abraham.'”Jesus Christ – Gospel of John 8:40
An iconoclast is a person who attacks settled beliefs or institutions or one who destroys religious images and opposes their veneration. This is something the ‘heretics‘ who suffered horrible deaths in the Roman Inquisitions all had in common with Abraham, Isaac, Jacob/Israel, Jesus and all the Prophets and Apostles. Most suffered torture and death for their testimony. They all opposed the veneration of idols, icons and religious images.
“Abram answered his father and said to him, ‘And how can you then serve these idols in whom there is no power to do anything? Can those idols in which you trust deliver you? can they hear your prayers when you call on them, can they deliver you from the hands of your enemies, or will they fight your battles for you against your enemies, that you should serve wood and stone which can neither speak nor hear? And now surely it is not good for you nor for the sons of men that are connected with you, to do these things; are you so silly, so foolish or so short of understanding that you will serve wood and stone, and do after this manner? And forget the LORD God who made Heaven and earth, and who created you in the earth, and thereby bring a great evil on your souls in this matter by serving stone and wood? Didn’t our fathers in days of old sin in this manner, and the LORD God of the Universe brought the waters of the Flood on them and destroyed the whole earth? And how can you continue to do this and serve gods of wood and stone, who cannot hear, or speak, or deliver you from oppression, thereby bringing down the anger of the God of the Universe on you?”Abraham – The Book of Jasher 11:43-47
Abraham suffered the sentence of imprisonment, torture and death by Nimrod for what he said and did to his father’s idols. God saved him!

The Strict Commandment to the people of God
“God spoke all these words, saying, I am the LORD your God, which brought you out of the land of Egypt, out of the house of bondage. You shall have no other gods before Me. You shall not make unto you any graven image, or any likeness of any thing that is in Heaven above, or that is in the earth beneath, or that is in the water under the earth: You shall not bow down yourself to them, nor serve/worship them: for I the LORD your God am a jealous God…”Exodus 20:1-5
If you look at the ‘Ten Commandments‘ in The Roman Catholic Catechism, you will see that this particular Commandment has been deleted from their version. Also, you can see, the root of all this polytheistic idolatry is ancient Babylon, which ends up through the ages to have come to Rome through Babylon, Persia and Greece. That’s why this Roman Catholic religion is called ‘The Great Whore of Babylon’ in the New Testament Book of Revelation, chapters 17 and 18.
“And there came one of the seven angels … and talked with me, say to me, ‘Come here, I will show unto you the judgment of the Great Whore that sits upon many waters: With whom the kings of the earth have committed fornication, and the inhabitants of the earth have been made drunk with the wine of her fornication. So he carried me away in the spirit into the wilderness: and I saw a woman sit upon a scarlet colored beast, full of names of blasphemy, having seven heads and ten horns… And upon her forehead was a name written, MYSTERY, BABYLON THE GREAT, THE MOTHER OF HARLOTS AND ABOMINATIONS OF THE EARTH. And I saw the woman drunken with the blood of the saints (hagios, Holy Ones, morally blameless), and with the blood of the martyrs (witnesses) of Jesus…”Book of Revelation 17:1-6
“After these things I saw another angel come down from Heaven, having great power; and the earth was lightened with his glory. And he cried mightily with a strong voice, saying, ‘Babylon the great is fallen, is fallen, and is become the habitation of devils/demons, and the hold of every foul spirit, and a cage of every unclean and hateful bird. For all nations have drunk of the wine of the wrath of her fornication, and the kings of the earth have committed fornication with her, and the merchants of the earth have become rich through the abundance of her delicacies.
And I heard another voice from heaven, saying, Come out of her, my people, that you are not partakers of her sins, and that you don’t receive of her plagues. For her sins have reached unto Heaven, and God has remembered her iniquities… for strong is the LORD God who judges her…”Book of Revelation 18:1-8
“…And he answered, ‘Babylon is fallen, is fallen; and all the graven images of her gods He has broken unto the ground.”Isaiah 21:9
“Rejoice over her, you Heaven, and you Holy Apostles and Prophets; for God has avenged you on her… ‘And the light of a candle shall shine no more at all in you; and the voice of the bridegroom and of the bride shall be heard no more at all in you: for your merchants are the great men of the earth; and by your sorceries/pharma have all nations been deceived.’ And in her is found the blood of prophets, and of saints/Holy Ones, and of all that were slain upon the earth.”Book of Revelation 18:20-24
“They shall be ashamed, and also confounded, all of them: they shall go to confusion together that are makers of idols. But Israel shall be saved in the LORD with an everlasting Salvation: you shall not be ashamed nor confounded world without end.”Isaiah 45:16-17
