The Roman Catholic Church started their 40 days of Lent, so let’s look at where that tradition started in Babylon, as one more proof that they are Mystery Babylon.
In Babylon, Nimrod was worshiped as the Sun God and his wife (some say she was his mother too) Semiramus was the Moon Goddess.
Semiramus shared power with Nimrod and declared herself the “Queen of Heaven.”
After Nimrod was killed, Semiramus claimed to have an immaculate conception of Nimrod’s son, whom she named Tammuz, the reincarnation of Nimrod.
Note: Here is the Babylonian Queen of Heaven claiming to have an immaculate conception. The Roman Catholic Church also calls Mary the Queen of Heaven. That is not a coincidence.
Tammuz, son of the mighty hunter Nimrod, died at the age of 40 while hunting. He was gored by a wild bore.
To honor him, Semiramus started a tradition of fasting for 40 days – a day for each year of his life.
The Bible records that the Israelites practiced weeping for Tammuz.
After God had Ezekiel look into the temple and see “every sort of creeping thing, abominable beasts, and all the idols of the house of Israel, portrayed all around on the walls,”
God showed Ezekiel more abominations, “You will see them doing things that are even more detestable.” So He brought me to the door of the north gate of the Lord’s house; and to my dismay, women were sitting there weeping for Tammuz.” Ezekiel 8:13-14
Then God showed Ezekiel that the men were worshiping the Sun (Nimrod). “Then He said to me, “Have you seen this, O son of man? Turn again, you will see greater abominations than these.” So He brought me into the inner court of the Lord’s house; and there, at the door of the temple of the Lord, between the porch and the altar, were about twenty-five men with their backs toward the temple of the Lord and their faces toward the east, and they were worshiping the sun toward the east.” Ezekiel 8:15-16
So God clearly detests the worship of Tammuz of Babylon and He hates Sun worship.
And the observance of Lent is clearly a representation of worshiping Tammuz of Babylon.
Here’s a final thought. The Papal Church uses symbols to convey the true meaning of things, even though Catholics may think that they represent something else.
On Ash Wednesday, which marks the beginning of the 40 days of Lent, Catholics receive a t on their forehead.
They think it represents the cross.
But the top leaders of the Papal Church know that it symbolizes tammuz.
