Vatican Babylon Interpolations – Habakkuk 2 By Levi

By Levi

(From Habakkuk 2)

“I will stand my watch [on guard]and set myself on the rampart [or tower], and watch to see what He [YHVH] will will answer me, and what I will answer when I am corrected. Then the LORD answered me and said: ‘Write the vision and make it plain [simple to comprehend] on tablets, that he may run who reads it [or, so he may read it while running, escaping the Lord’s punishment/correction of the city]. For the vision is yet for an appointed time [moed, possibly a Torah holy day]; but at the end [of the age] it will speak, and it will not lie [not be false prophecy]. Though it tarries [takes time], wait for it; because it will surely come, it will not tarry [delay beyond the appointed time].’” (intrpl. mine):


“’Behold the proud [Bishop of Rome], his soul is not upright [righteous] in him; but the just [righteous ones] shall live by [according to] his faith [Christianity]. Indeed, because he transgresses by wine [sins by communion], he is a proud man [arrogant and unrepentant], and he does not stay at home [is a globe trotter]. Because he enlarges his desire as hell [desires souls from the dead, from sheol], and he is like death, and cannot be satisfied, he gathers to himself all nations [desires global unity and compliance] and heaps up [collects] for himself all peoples [socialism]. Will not all these [peoples] take up a proverb [teaching parable] against him, and a taunting [mocking] riddle against him, and say, “Woe to him who increases what is not his [redistribution]- how long? And to him who loads himself with many pledges [lit., thick clay for official letters]’? Will not your creditors [bankers] rise up suddenly?” (Hab. 2:1-7) NKJV; intrpl. mine

To help readers clarify these peculiar ancient prophecies about this man’s gathering of souls and financial pledges, as far as how is appears to correlate with the actions of the last pope, it helps to know that Francis terminated his Italian bankers of the Vatican Bank, and corruption is said to be widespread. Also, despite all the tithes and contributions from many of the approximately 1.2 billion Catholics in the world, the papacy currently finds itself indebted with 2.2 billion dollars of unfunded pensions for its clerical hierarchy. If all of Chapter 2 is about the last pope, we can expect the Vatican’s current financial problems to escalate, even as he travels abroad for socialism, pushing the U.N.’s Sustainable Development Agenda (also called Agenda 21/30). Perhaps, as a Hebraic idiom, the NKJV states that the literal reading of these “creditors” is: “Will not those who bite you rise up suddenly?” As we continue applying the prophecy with this line of thought, the financial controversy seems to end badly for the Vatican:

“’Will they not awaken who oppress you? And you will become their booty [prize]? Because you have plundered many nations [taken wealth and spoils], all the remnant [rest] of the people shall plunder you, because of men’s blood [history of bloodshed] and the violence of the land [Italy] and the city [Rome or Vatican City], and of all who dwell in it. Woe to him who covets evil gain for his house [likely via mass immigration housing schemes], that he may set his nest on high [exalted among the nations], that he may be delivered from the power of disaster [lit., the “hand of evil,” (global engineering?)]! You give shameful counsel to your house [Roman Catholic Christianity], cutting off many people [demoting conservatives priests and ignoring all who are not liberals and Marxist socialists], and sin against your soul. For the stone will cry out from the wall [Protective Stone of the “living stones” shall object], and the beam from the timbers [person cut down for building the house] shall answer it. Woe to him who builds a town [Rome] with bloodshed [violence, sacrifices], who establishes a city by iniquity! Behold, is it not of the LORD [YHVH] of hosts [multitudes] that the peoples [nations] labor to feed the fire [what satisfies hellfire], and nations weary themselves in vain [climate change futility]? For the earth shall be filled with the knowledge [science] of the glory of the LORD, as the waters cover the sea.’” (Hab. 2:7-17) NKJV; intrpl. mine

Before we continue, it should be noted that the reoccurring theme of this chapter is global socialism, and a man of a wicked house and city who schemes to draw all nations to himself. It involves questionable finances and international vanity. Yet the Lord goes on to explain that the world will be filled with the knowledge of the glory of God, as if the man being rebuked should be doing teaching this but is more concerned with vain secular knowledge. This is interesting considering the current Bishop of Rome’s postulating for gradual, materialist evolution, rather than God purposely creating species through a sequence of time. The current pope seems to believe in God’s works only at the beginning of microbial life (or in abiogenesis). Yet the pope goes even further, pushing climate change hysteria, which is little more than an international progressive power-grab by elitists micromanaging via regulations and increasing taxation for energy usage. Population control may be another progressive concern of his, if His comment on Catholics breeding “like rabbits” is an underhand rebuke. Clearly the current pope has a limited view of God, even calling personal prayer relationships with God, “dangerous.” The stone that “will cry out from the wall” likely refers to the once-rejected Cornerstone objecting to being but a building material in this house and city founded upon violence and supported by financial corruption. Yet we are left wondering what the beam from the timbers answers. If we look back to the beginning of the chapter, Prophet Habakkuk (Havakuk meaning embrace) speaks of his waiting on God- the Rock of Israel- for a correction (concerning the first chapter- him complaining that evil is prevailing in the world as the righteous perish), and watching to see what he will answer Him. Utilizing the hermeneutic exegetics of dual prophetic fulfillment, this suggests that during end-times (of this present age), a prophet who embraces God- waiting upon the Lord- will receive like corrections and deliver a message to a house and city, paralleling Habakkuk watching on the rampart. As I believe that Rome is being addressed, specifically Vatican City, and that the message will be as it is in Revelation- to escape Babylon, and “Come out of her My people.” The reason for the message seems to be because punishment is coming, with several causes brought about by the papal system. Yet the knowledge of God’s works will be known all over the world, even without such an institution. It all comes down to the message being made plain so that people can run upon hearing it. When we add all the clues together, it appears as if this globe-trotting socialist is the last straw on the camel’s back, and God prepares to issue judgment. Thus, we continue along this train of thought:

“’Woe to him who gives drink to his neighbor, pressing [lit. joining, perhaps communion] him to your [wineskin] bottle, even making him drunk, that you may look on his [lit. their] nakedness [homosexuality]! You are filled with shame instead of glory [substituting glory], you also- drink! And be exposed as uncircumcised [without a covenant of the heart with God, cutting away excessive flesh]! The cup of the LORD’s [YHVH’s] right hand [Christ, Right Hand of God] will be turned against you, and utter shame will be on your glory.’” (Hab. 2:15-17) NKJV; intrpl. mine

Again, we see a man who should be glorious, perhaps as a priest of the Lord, but his glory is turned into shame. The cause? Homosexuality and drunkenness in his house. We know the prophet speaks of homosexuality because the “woe” is to “him” who makes “him drunk.” And we know it is not only making one man or male child drunk, but the prophet explains that he will look upon “their nakedness.” The mention of being “uncircumcised” in the passage suggests more than a lack of fleshly cutting away for a covenant with God, but something more along the lines of the Lord “circumcis[ing] your heart and the heart of your descendants, to love the LORD your God with all your heart and with all your soul, that you may live” (see Deut. 30:6). As for the cup or chalice of YHVH’s Right Hand being turned against the man, we can discern the meaning of this by the writings of Paul: “Therefore whoever eats this bread or drinks this cup of the Lord in an unworthy manner will be guilty of the body and blood of the Lord. But let a man examine himself, and so let him eat of the bread and drink of the cup” (1 Cor. 11:27-28; NKJV). We should also recall that Babylon, which sits on the seven hills of Rome, is also seen as a harlot unfaithful to God, fornicating with national power, with a cup of the blood of the saints in her hand. Of course, there has always been a mixing of good and evil in the Roman Church, and to a greater degree among some of her Protestant daughters, which now have homosexual ministers and teachers, yet we know by the prophets that the cup of the Lord’s indignation eventually spills over unto judgment after much patience, mercy, and grace. Moreover, again we find something that has continued to plague Catholicism, which is a perverse spirit of homosexuality, and indeed the current Bishop of Rome is now subtly calling for more acceptance of those committing to gay marriage. And if his own words are true, 1 in 50 priests likes to play with little boys to fulfill that desire.

But now we must move on to two other problems of Roman Catholicism- their doing little to protect hundreds of thousands of Christians who are being beheaded and displaced in the Middle East, and their worship and prayers before images of idolatry. The meaning behind joining these two mismatched subjects may be that people with influence and power should actually act to save lives rather than merely bowing before statues and idols, praying about such things. The message appears to be that God will not hear the prayers of earthly men who bow down before religious idols.

“’For the violence done to Lebanon [also Syria and Iraq] will cover you [swarms of immigration], and the plunder of beasts [nations] which made them afraid, because of men’s blood and the violence of the land and the city, and of all who dwell in it. What profit is the image, that its maker should carve it, the molded image, a teacher of lies, that the maker of its mold should trust in it, to make mute idols? Woe to him who says to the wood, “Awake!” To the silent stone, “Arise! It shall teach!” Behold, it is overlaid with gold and silver, yet there is no breath at all [no life or Spirit]. But the LORD is in His holy temple. Let the earth [all the earthly men] keep silent before Him.”’ (Hab. 2:17-20) NKJV; intrpl. mine


In conclusion, Bible-believers need not agree with my exegesis or interpolations, or that the second chapter of Habakkuk correlates with today’s papacy, but they should consider that God must have wanted this man at “the time of the end” to be identified for people to run or escape His judgments. We know from the passage that it concerns 1) global wealth, debts, and bankers; 2) a faith or religion for the “just” or righteous; 3) a man’s glory turned to shame; 4) a house and city build upon bloodshed; 5) abuse of wine; 6) homosexuality; 7) globe trotting; 8) cutting off many people; 9) international vanity; 10) God’s promise that the world will still be filled with the knowledge of His glory; 11) socialism or a heaping up of all peoples; and 12) a man of many pledges or sealed documents. Beyond these, readers are left to decide for their selves on the rest of these postulated parallels and correlations. The first thing that may come to mind is the end-of-the-age Antichrist, simply because he is also likened to “death” in Revelation. However, the exalted homosexual portrayed in this chapter, this man who cannot stay home and collects people for his purposes, does not fall at the coming of Messiah, but before then. His own house turns against him, which is represented by the “Stone” among stones in the wall crying out, and by the “beam” of its support. A picture emerges of a man being trampled down by the troubles he exacerbates. My advice is for Catholic Christians to escape the Roman religion, with all its changing positions and vain traditions, and return to a personal relationship with God and Christ, strengthened by growing comprehension of Holy Scriptures. Shalom.
