Romulus and Remus

Being nursed by a she wolf



ROMULUS, [rom´yOOlus]

In Roman legend, founder of Rome. When Amulius usurped the throne of his brother Numitor, king of Alba Longa, he forced Numitor's daughter, Rhea Silvia, to become a Vestal Virgin so that she would bear no children. However, she became the mother of twin sons, Romulus and Remus, by the god Mars. Amulius then imprisoned Rhea Silvia and set the infants adrift in a basket on the Tiber (sounds just like Moses). They floated safely ashore, where a she-wolf suckled and tended them until the royal shepherd Faustulus and his wife found and reared them. When they were grown, the brothers learned their true identity, killed Amulius, and restored Numitor to the throne. They then decided to establish a city of their own where they had been first rescued from the Tiber. When Romulus was chosen by an omen as the true founder of the new city, strife arose between the brothers, and Romulus killed Remus. Roman historians traditionally set the date of Rome's founding at 753 B.C.

Revelations 17:1-9

One of the seven angels who had the seven bowls came and spoke with me, saying, "Come here. I will show you the judgment of the great prostitute who sits on many waters (across many oceans),

2 with whom the kings of the earth committed (spiritual) sexual immorality (with pagan gods) , and those who dwell in the earth were made drunken with the wine of her sexual immorality."

3 He carried me away in the Spirit into a wilderness. I saw a woman sitting on a scarlet-colored animal, full of blasphemous names, having seven heads and ten horns.

4 The woman was dressed in purple and scarlet, and decked with gold and precious stones and pearls, having in her hand a golden cup full of abominations, even the unclean things of her (spiritual) sexual immorality (worship of false gods and goddesses),

5 and on her forehead a name written, "MYSTERY, BABYLON THE GREAT (catholic church), THE MOTHER OF THE PROSTITUTES (protestant churches) AND OF THE ABOMINATIONS (Evils) OF THE EARTH."

6 I saw the woman drunken with the blood of the (True) saints, and with the blood of the martyrs of Jesus. When I saw her, I wondered with great amazement.

7 The angel said to me, "Why do you wonder? I will tell you the mystery of the woman, and of the beast that carries her, which has the seven heads and the ten horns.

8 The beast that you saw was, and is not; and is about to come up out of the abyss, and to go into destruction. Those who dwell on the earth will wonder, whose name has not been written in the book of life from the foundation of the world, when they see the beast, how that he was, and is not, and will come.

9 Here is the mind that has wisdom. The seven heads are * Seven Mountains, on which the woman sits.

 

* Those Seven Mountains are situated in ROME ITALY and are known as the . . . .

 

"The Seven Hills of Rome"

 

Tradition says that Rome, Italy was founded in 753 BC by twin boys, Romulus and Remus. Romulus and Remus were abandoned by their parents and were then taken into the care of a she-wolf (see Pagan Influences; coins.html). From looking at archaeology, researchers discovered that the city of Rome began in 753 BC as a series of farmsteads on a group of hills overlooking the Tiber River. There were seven hills and some believe that Romulus and Remus were not only very proud of finding this land with seven hills, but, for the fact that there were seven planets they worshiped: the Sun, the Moon, Mercury, Venus, Mars, Jupiter and Saturn. They named the hills, Palatine, Aventine, Capitoline, Quarinal, Viminal, Esquiline and Caelian. In between these hills were marshy valleys where the Romans buried their dead. In the later 7th century BC the Tarquins took control of Rome. The Tarquins were Etruscan brothers. They were very bad rulers who killed many people and destroyed many things during their rule. Although, while they were winning, Rome began to change from a village to a city. With this change came the draining of the Forum Valley which was being converted into a public square, or commons. A wooden bridge was built across the Tiber River and a temple was constructed and dedicated to Jupiter Capitolinus. A barrier wall was built around the city for protection dating from the 4th century BC.
