The first mention of leopard in the bible is the meaning in the name of Nimrod.... ( nimre, namer (leopard) nimrah, nimriyan) it also means a place of waters...of masculine and feminine. So we see Nimrod "the mighty hunter before the lord" "a leopard" upon the sea/waters which represent peoples and nations.
Nimrod was born the son of Cush the son of Ham who uncovered his fathers (Noah) nakedness and Noah changed his birthright from second to last and cursed his son Canaan. Nevertheless The rebellious nature of Ham arose in Nimrod and he became the King of babel, Babylon.
Reading Genesis 9-11 you will find that while all the families of Noah were divided into nations but as they journeyed from the east they found a plain in the land of Sinar and they dwelt there.
Nimrod according to the Historian Josephus saw himself as not only a King, but a god and was angry with God for destroying the earth and purposed to build a Kingdom beginning with the tower of Babel where he instituted idolatry and the mystery religions of Babylon. His wife, Semiramis would then after his death, declare that Nimrod as god re-incarnated in her son Tammuz, whom she married and became Queen of Heaven and Mother of god! A foreshadow of the coming Antichrist counterfeit of Christ 's Second Coming.
All false religions originate from this point of biblical reference! Marduk, Baal, Dagon, and all the feminine goddesses. It could be argued that if not in reincarnation but possession and or personification, Satan and or his spirit of anti-christ can be traced throughout the bible and human history.
The mystery religions of Babylon all have the same thing in common with each other as it is said at each different level of the tower a new god and goddess are created for each branch or tribes..and that is the participants after secret knowledge is gained they could become gods!
This religious system has kept it's secret societies throughout history plotting and planning to rule the entire world with their witchcraft's and sorcery's.
Rebellion is as the sin of witchcraft and it's sisters are ambition, jealousy envy strife and it's weapons are deception, lies, false accusations, fear and hatred.
2 Thessalonians 2:7 "for the mystery of iniquity doth already work"
When a rebellious man manifests this spirit like Cain he will hate and murder his brethren, when a woman manifests it, she will be like Jezebel and kill, steal, and destroy in the name of her weak King who wants what he has not sown nor has heritage to.
The story of Ahab and Jezebel shows that Naboth's garden came from his fathers, it was his heritage and he was not going to let it go. But King Ahab who was married to Jezebel, the daughter of Eth Baal priests and priestesses of Baal, Marduk, pick your false god, it's all Satan! Satan wants our inheritance and he will find Ahab's and Jezabels, Herods and Herodius, Annanias and Sapphira, that's right, it is not always manifested at the top, any opposition to Gods garden of salvation and revival is threatened, God will weed his precious garden!
If folks don't want to help revival, that's fine but start hindering it and Satan will use you to oppose it! And God will use you like Annanias and saphira to get the rest of the Church's attention like in acts 5:5-11
Ahab is an Israelite who went after other gods...seduced by Jezebel who hated the God of Israel, we can see Ahab as a type of the Church who has let in false doctrines in both spirit and truth. In truth as to the the person of Jesus Christ, salvation, and holiness separated in the world but not of the world.
Ahab as a type of leadership is manipulated willingly by Jezebel who hates all true God ordained anointing and authority. She will plot, backbite slander and accuse to get her way...
There are more churches that have these spirits that hinder spiritual growth and revival but the word of the Lord is clear what shall be their end in these last days.
Nimrod and Babylon was Assyrian....our text in Revelation connects the beast to this original Assyrian Nimrod, the great hunter of souls, God had ordained that the families of Noah "go into all the world...as Adam and Eve were to do, but Nimrod told God no! And God destroyed his city and confused their language and they were scattered.
|16||And he causeth all, both small and great, rich and poor, free and bond, to receive a mark in their right hand, or in their foreheads:|
|17||and that no man might buy or sell, save he that had the mark, or the name of the beast, or the number of his name.|
|18||Here is wisdom. Let him that hath understanding count the number of the beast: for it is the number of a man; and his number is Six hundred threescore and six.|
