ALTAR OF ZEUS/SATAN'S THRONE
JESUS IDENTIFIES THE THRONE OF SATAN WITH THE
ALTAR OF ZEUS IN THE ANCIENT CITY OF PERGAMON
With the following words to the apostle John, Jesus Christ gives us the the key that opens the door to understanding what Satan’s religious system is, how it operated in the ancient Greek world, how it continues to operate today, and most importantly, Athena’s key role in it:
The altar of Zeus remained intact on the heights of Pergamon until the tenth century. Then, the Byzantines used the frieze plates to construct a defensive wall on the fortress-hill in their war against Islam, and the ancient treasures gradually disappeared into the dirt. In the early 1870s, a German engineer named Carl Humann who had been hired to build a highway in Asia Minor, was drawn to Pergamum where he discovered and unearthed some of the frieze plates. In 1878, a planned excavation of the fortress-hill terrain began under Humann’s direction. Over the years, the Germans conducted negotiations with the Turkish government, making possible the acquisition of the Pergamum discoveries for the Berlin Museum. There, in 1880, some sculptures were shown for the first time.
It was not until 1930 that the western side of the altar of Zeus, the throne of Satan, was erected in a room in the newly built Pergamon Museum. Shortly after that, Adolph Hitler seized power. He was a man determined to eradicate God’s chosen people, the Jews. These were a people who directed their worship exclusively to the God of Noah/Nereus. The rest of that story you should know.

The main feature of the acropolis of Pergamon on the west coast of ancient Anatolia (modern-day Turkey) was the altar of Zeus completed in 178 BC. Thus, in the above passage, by referring to the altar as the throne of Satan, Christ reveals to us that Zeus is a guise of “the ancient serpent called Adversary and Satan” (Revelation 12:9). The logical corollary is that the mankind-exalting Greek religious system is Satan’s religious system. A 120-meter-long frieze surrounding the altar of Zeus/throne of Satan vividly boasted of the gods (glorified ancestors in the way of Cain) defeating the Giants, or Seth-men, the God-believing sons of Noah.
And to the messenger of the ecclesia in Pergamon write: “Now this He is saying Who has the sharp two-edged blade: ‘I am aware where you are dwelling—where the throne of Satan is . . . '" (Revelation 2:12-13).
