Nimrod, in Palace of Khorsabad

During this entire study of Nimrod, it is important to understand WHEN he appears, very shortly after the FLOOD.  THUS, he is the ORIGINATOR of SOLAR GOD worship, which equates to SATANISM.  Always keep this in mind as we look at Persian, Babylonian, Greek, Roman and other (g)ods of the past…they ALL came AFTER Nimrod.

The eastern chronicles say that Nimrod invented magic and astrology, and governed the Persians (Modern day Iran) and also taught the Assyrians* (Modern day Iraq) to worship fire.

*Assyria was centred on the Upper Tigris river, in northern Mesopotamia (present day northern Iraq),

Perseus: The history of this man doth so connect itself at every point with the history of Nimrod, with that of the East, with that of the apostacy of mankind from the worship of God, and with the abominable practises of sorcerey and worshippers of
Satan in all times, that any one, whose enquiry embraced all those topics, would naturally repose upon him, as upon a sure footing-place from which to set his argument in motion.

From Wikipaedia: Perseus (Greek: Περσεύς), was the first of the mythic heroes of Greek mythology whose exploits in defeating various archaic monsters provided the founding myths of the Twelve Olympians. Perseus was the Greek hero who killed the Gorgon Medusa, and claimed Andromeda, having rescued her from a sea monster sent by Poseidon in retribution for Queen Cassiopeia declaring herself more beautiful than the Nereids.

Perseus was instructed by his father Jupiter, otherwise called Picus, a person addicted to every practice the most blasphemous in magic or sorcery, the most sanguinary and cruel, and the most shockingly obscene and libidinous. And those mysteries of iniquity, which he had learned from Jupiter Picus, he put in use in order to gain to himself the Assyrian monarchy, which having effected, he dedicated a temple to Fire the Immortal*, and instituted a college of wise men whom he called the Magicians or Magi.

*Note: In the Book of Daniel we read of the AntiChrist who worship’s a God of Force (force=fire): “(Daniel 11:38) – But in his estate shall he honour the God of forces: and a god whom his fathers knew not shall he honour with gold, and silver, and with precious stones, and pleasant things. {11:39} Thus shall he do in the most strong holds with a strange god, whom he shall acknowledge [and] increase with glory:”

In ancient Rome, and throughout all great civilizations, a type of Nimrod was worshipped who was symbolized by the Sun (Fire/force). The Roman’s worshipped Mithras who was regarded as a sun-god, a god of light whose birth was celebrated on the winter solstice, December 25th.  The god of forces,” a KOSMOKRATOR, meaning a ruler of this world, specifically, a world-ruler, in the sense of one who wields control over a vast region; Mithras is the type of Nimrod, who was the FIRST Solar god.

From Daniel, we see that at HIS time, there was a demonic “Sun God” in Persia:

But the (demonic) prince of the kingdom of Persia withstood me 21 days. But Michael, one of the chief celestial princes, (of God) came to help me, and I remained there with the kings of Persia. Then the angel said: Know then, why I come to you. Now I will return to fight with the (demonic) prince of Persia. When I am gone forth, lo, the prince of Grecia will come. (Daniel 10:13-20)

Thus, we see that Perseus, a type of Nimrod, worshipped FIRE and dedicated a temple to FIRE THE IMMORTAL. We shall see that NIMROD also worshipped FIRE, and was the FIRST ANTICHRIST, upon which all false god’s would be a type…
