History
Caesar Augustus reigned as emperor of the Roman empire from 27 B.C. to 14 A.D., 41 years in all. (The grandnephew of Julius Caesar ) his real name was Gaius Octavius and he lived from 63 B.C. to 14 A.D. Because Julius Caesar had legally adopted Octavius as his son, Octavius took the name "Caesar" from Julius, which in later years became a name almost equivalent to "emperor." "Augustus" is a Latin term that means "worthy of reverence."

Caesar Augustus's reign was marked by peace and security - the famous Pax Romana - as well as by lavish building projects throughout the empire. Augustus had such an intense interest in religion within his realm that, if not for his other great achievements, he might have gone down in history as a religious reformer. In his day, belief in the traditional Greco-Roman pantheon had decreased dramatically as philosophical skepticism grew and a growing number joined the foreign mystery religions. Augustus was convinced that belief in the old gods had made Rome great so he set out to encourage his subjects to return to the worship of these gods. He restored eighty-two temples in Rome alone! He became the pontifex maximus (highest priest) in the state cult.

 
 
The Census of Augustus Documented by Romans
"He revived the office of the Censor which had long been disused and whose duty it had formerly been to take an account of the number of people." - Seutonius Roman Historian - Augustus 23 - Lives of the Twelve Caesars

"He took a census of the people three times" - Augustus 27
"He took a census of the Roman people street by street "
- Augustus 40
 

"Since the consuls caused a law to be passed soon after this that he should govern the provinces jointly with Augustus and hold the census with him" - Seutonius Roman Historian - Tiberias 21- Lives of the Twelve Caesars

"This contained the number of citizens, subject kingdoms and taxes. All these details Augustus had written with his own hand" - Tacitus Annals - Book 1 Roman Historian

Luke 2:1 And it came to pass in those days, that there went out a decree from Caesar Augustus, that all the world should be registered.

 
 

Res Gestae Divi Augusti - Monumentum Ancyranum
The name Monumentum Ancyranum refers to the Temple of Augustus and Rome in Ankara, Turkey, or to the inscription Res Gestae Divi Augusti, a text recounting the deeds of the first Roman emperor Augustus and the most intact copy of which is preserved on the walls of this temple.

"I made a census of the people I performed the lustrum after an interval of forty-one years." - 2-8 Res Gastae

"A third time, with the consular imperium, and with my son Tiberius Caesar as my colleague, I performed the census in the consulship."- 2-8 Res Gastae

Full translation of the Res Gestae Divi Augusti

 
 

Cyrenius is Governor of Syria During the Census -Taxing
"So Archelaus's country was laid to the province of Syria; and Cyrenius, one that had been consul, was sent by Caesar to take account of people's effects in Syria.Cyrenius came himself into Judea, which was now added to the province of Syria, to take an account of their substance." - Josephus - Antiquities of the Jews - Book 18

Luke 2:1 And this taxing was first made when Cyrenius was governor of Syria.

"That had been consul" - This lends credibility to the fact of Cyrenius possibly ruling as governor of Syria on more than one occasion. See Judas of Galilee and Theudas - Acts 5

 
 

The Ara Pacis and Mausoleum of Augustus
The Ara Pacis Augustae (Latin for "Altar of Augustan Peace", and commonly shortened to Ara Pacis) is an altar to Peace, envisioned as a Roman goddess. It was commissioned by (or for) the Roman emperor Augustus, consecrated on 30 January 9 BC. The Altar was originally located on the Campus Martius. Benito Mussolini built a protective building for the Altar by the Mausoleum of Augustus (moving the Altar in the process) as part of his attempt to create an ancient Roman "theme park" as an example of Fascist Italy. Detailed history on the Mausoluem

Memorial plaque on the outer drum of the Augustus Mausoleum reads:

"Marcellus, son of Gaius Marcellus, nephew of Augustus Caesar."

 
 

The Story of Atia – Mother of Augustus and Apollo
“When Atia had come in the middle of the night to the solemn service of Apollo, she had her litter set down in the temple and fell asleep, while the rest of the matrons also slept. On a sudden a serpent glided up to her and shortly went away. When she awoke, she purified herself, as if after the embraces of her husband, and at once there appeared on her body a mark in colours like a serpent, and she could never get rid of it; so that presently she ceased ever to go to the public baths. In the tenth month after that Augustus was born and was therefore regarded as the Son of Apollo." - Suetonius Augustus 94 – Lives of the Twelve Caesars.

The God of the Romans - Apollo
Satan is called Apollo in the book of Revelation.

According to the Romans Apollo is the:

"God of Light”
"Satan himself is transformed into an angel of light" - 2 Corinthians

"God of Music”
"The workmanship of Satan’s tabrets and of thy pipes was prepared in thee in the day that thou wast created." – King of Tyre Ezekiel 28

"Bringer of Death”
"The devil, as a roaring lion, walks about, seeking whom he may devour." - 1st Peter

Revelation 2:24 As many as have not this doctrine, and which have not known the depths of Satan - Nero and The King of Tyre - Satan
