1 Then I turned, and lifted up mine eyes, and
looked, and behold a flying roll.
2 And he said unto me, What seest thou? And I answered, I see a flying roll; the length thereof is twenty cubits, and the breadth thereof ten cubits. (dimensions of The Holy Place of the earthly temple, where was kept the torah scroll?)
3Then said he unto me, This is the curse that goeth forth over the face of the whole earth: for every one that stealeth shall be cut off as on this side, according to it; and every one that sweareth shall be cut off as on that side, according to it,
4 I will bring it forth, saith Yahweh of hosts, and it shall enter into the house of the thief, and into the house of him that insists on falsifying My name: and it shall remain in the midst of his house, and shall consume it with the timber thereof and the stones thereof.
5 Then the angel that talked with me went forth, and said unto me, Lift up now thine eyes, and see what is this that goeth forth.
6 And I said, What is it? and he said, This is an ephah that goeth forth. He said moreover, This is their resemblance through all the earth.
7 And behold, there was lifted up a talent of lead: and there was a woman sitting in the midst of the ephah.
8 And he said, This is wickedness. And thrust her back into the midst of the ephah; and he cast the weight of lead upon the mouth thereof.
9 Then lifted I up mine eyes, and looked, and behold, there came out two women, and the wind was in their wings; for they had wings like the wings of a stork: and they lifted up the ephah bertween the earth and the heaven.
10 Then said I to the angel that talked with me, Whither do these bear the ephah?
11 And he said unto me, To build it an house in the land of Shinar: and it shall be established, and set there upon her own base.
The two women, Catholicism and Apostate Protestantism, are the two daughters of the ancient religion of Nimrod, spiritualism (life after death) and idolatry, wickedness as shown below in the book of Yashur starting after the flood at Shinar, the city Nimrod built. The woman pushed down into the ephah, shows that the early roots history, the connection to ancient idolatry, is suppressed information, and covered with a lead weight. The modern popularity of the "life after death" theory, shows that acceptance of spiritism is gaining wide acceptance, and catholicism, protestantism, will reach over the gulf and clasp hands together with spiritualism.

James Arabito's videos show the connections between the ancient pagan religions and catholicism, created by adjoining some tenants of the believers with the Nimrod-Marduk cult of ancient Babylon, many tenants in apostate protestantism come from this union.
Book of Yasher, Chapter 7
39 And when Nimrod had joyfully returned from battle, after having conquered his enemies, all his brethren, together with those who knew him before, assembled to make him king over them, and they placed the regal crown upon his head.
40 And he set over his subjects and people, princes, judges, and rulers, as is the custom amongst kings.
41 And he placed Terah the son of Nahor the prince of his host, and he dignified him and elevated him above all his princes.
42 And whilst he was reigning according to his heart's desire, after having conquered all his enemies around, he advised with his counselors to build a city for his palace, and they did so.
43 And they found a large valley opposite to the east, and they built him a large and extensive city, and Nimrod called the name of the city that he built Shinar, for YeHovah had vehemently shaken his enemies and destroyed them.
44 And Nimrod dwelt in Shinar, and he reigned securely, and he fought with his enemies and he subdued them, and he prospered in all his battles, and his kingdom became very great.
45 And all nations and tongues heard of his fame, and they gathered themselves to him, and they bowed down to the earth, and they brought him offerings, and he became their lord and king, and they all dwelt with him in the city at Shinar, and Nimrod reigned in the earth over all the sons of Noah, and they were all under his power and counsel.
46 And all the earth was of one tongue and words of union, but Nimrod did not go in the ways of YeHovah, and he was more wicked than all the men that were before him, from the days of the flood until those days.
47 And he made gods of wood and stone, and he bowed down to them, and he rebelled against YeHovah, and taught all his subjects and the people of the earth his wicked ways; and Mardon his son was more wicked than his father.
48 And every one that heard of the acts of Mardon the son of Nimrod would say, concerning him, From the wicked goeth forth wickedness; therefore it became a proverb in the whole earth, saying, From the wicked goeth forth wickedness, and it was current in the words of men from that time to this.
Book of Yasher, Chapter 11
7 And notwithstanding this, Nimrod did not return to YeHovah, and he continued in wickedness and teaching wickedness to the sons of men; and Mardon, his son, was worse than his father, and continued to add to the abominations of his father.
8 And he caused the sons of men to sin, therefore it is said, From the wicked goeth forth wickedness.

The beast with two horns "causeth [commands] all, both
small and great, rich and poor, free and bond, to receive a
mark in their right hand, or in their foreheads; 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." [1 REV. 13:16, 17]
The third angel's warning is, "If any man worship the beast and
his image, and receive his mark in his forehead, or in
his hand, the same shall drink of the wine of the wrath of
God." "The beast" mentioned in this message, whose
worship is enforced by the two-horned beast, is the first,
or leopard-like beast of Revelation 13,--the papacy. The
"image to the beast" represents that form of apostate
Protestantism which will be developed when the Protestant
churches shall seek the aid of the civil power for the
enforcement of their dogmas. The "mark of the beast" still
remains to be defined.
-PT- The Youth's Instructor
-AT- The Life of Daniel--The Sabbath Test
When the Sabbath becomes the special point of controversy throughout
Christendom, the persistent refusal of a small minority to yield to the
popular demand will make them objects of universal execration. It will be
urged that the few who stand in opposition to an institution of the church
and a law of the state, ought not to be tolerated; that it is better for them
to suffer than for whole nations to be thrown into confusion and lawlessness.
This argument will appear conclusive; and against those who hallow the
Sabbath of the fourth commandment will finally be issued a decree, denouncing
them as deserving of the severest punishment, and giving the people liberty,
after a certain time, to put them to death. Romanism in the Old World, and
apostate Protestantism in the New, will pursue a similar course toward those
who honor all the divine precepts.

<SB And I saw three unclean spirits like frogs come out of the
mouth of the dragon, and out of the mouth of the beast, and
out of the mouth of the false prophet. For they are the spirits
of devils, working miracles, which go forth unto the kings of
the earth and of the whole world, to gather them to the battle of
that great day of God Almighty. Rev. 16:13, 14. <EB
By the decree enforcing the institution of the papacy in
violation of the law of God, our nation [the United States] will
disconnect herself fully from righteousness. When Protestantism
shall stretch her hand across the gulf to grasp the hand of
the Roman power, when she shall reach over the abyss to clasp
hands with spiritualism, when, under the influence of this
threefold union, our country shall repudiate every principle of
its Constitution as a Protestant and republican government, and
shall make provision for the propagation of papal falsehoods
and delusions, then we may know that the time has come for the
marvelous working of Satan and that the end is near.
