10 And the fifth angel poured out his vial upon the seat of the beast. And his kingdom became dark: and they gnawed their tongues for pain.
11 And they blasphemed the God of heaven, because of their pains and wounds: and did not penance for their works.
This is Isis (above left) who in the ancient world was the head goddess of the most evil of the developed forms of the triple goddess. The triple goddess was the absolute center and power of sorcery and black magic in the ancient world. That looped object in her hand is the intaglio. The Romans subsumed Isis along with many other goddesses into Tyche.
The virgin goddess of black magic : The ancient image of the beast was in fact the Harlot's representation in Rome, i. e. the images of Tyche (Fortuna) the goddess of fortune meaning fate or destiny. It was from Alexandria, Egypt (later on in the early third century, home of the neo-gnostic/christian school the Didascalia) in the early 2nd century A.D. that Valentinus brought the pseudo-christian gnostic gospel of Mary to Rome which St. Irenaeus (180 A.D.) so ably refuted in his “Against Heresies”. This so-called gospel of Mary (found in the Egyptian Nag Hammadi gnostic library in the 1940s) was nothing more than Isis and Horus the Egyptian false goddess/god child usurping the place of the true Jesus Christ Who by the Holy Spirit of the Father was truly born of (Incarnate and given birth to by) the virgin Mary.
