As believers, we look at things happening in the world today as bad, while the world sees them as good. But when we put it in Biblical perspective, we can see that everything that is happening has all been accounted for in advance in perfect detail, so for us, it should be awesome! We see the things coming in the future as of Satan, as of man, and as of the world, which the world will see as fantastic!
We are seeing these very things preparing the way for that to happen like chip implants. People think this type of technology is amazing and they are embracing it! They think it's wonderful and offers great conveniences, while we shake our heads in amazement. Don't people see this as being wrong? There are branches in the special forces that are using this type of implants in covert campaigns and other groups are using this to open doors and keep their identities from being falsified. It has great benefits when it comes to drying up the money supply for terrorist activities, to stopping human trafficking, but this is simply a bad idea with the wrong motive attached to it, but you can see how the world will fall for the lies.
God's judgment comes in stages. The destruction of Babylon in Iraq as the Bible predicts has not happened yet. It will become commercially larger than Hong Kong, Europe and even New York city all put together in the very near future.
Dr. Henry Morris wrote more than 25 years ago, "That which is today modern Iraq, will be some method or mode be brought to a place of dramatic change. The world community, headed up by the west and the powers of the antichrist, will make this now barren place, the International Headquarters for Global Commerce."
Even today, the US is pouring money into Iraq to make it a viable power in the world's economy. The Bloomberg Reports says, "There's talk that Iraq will be converting to either the US dollar or the European Euro as a currency to introduce it into the global world."
Here are some questions to consider:
1. Is Iraq/Babylon in the Bible?
2. Is Babylon/Iraq to be a topic in the world we are living in today?
3. Is Babylon/Iraq in the news today?
4. Is Babylon/Iraq to be rebuilt?
5. Is there a rebuilding process happening now?
The answer to all of these questions is Yes! Did you know that there are streets and sidewalks being paved; that hospitals are coming back online; some schools are being restored with electrical power; water plants are being installed; woman are going back to school and all of these improvements and more since the freedoms have been restored to that region?
When will Babylon be rebuilt? That is an easy question to answer! It must be rebuilt prior to being destroyed and we know that it will be destroyed at the end of the Great Tribulation Period. The timing then is very important to us as believers, and before Jesus returns in the Second Coming.
Revelation 18:1-8 ~ "After this I saw another angel coming down from heaven, having great authority, and the earth was made bright with his glory. And he called out with a mighty voice, "Fallen, fallen is Babylon the great! She has become a dwelling place for demons, a haunt for every unclean spirit, a haunt for every unclean bird, a haunt for every unclean and detestable beast. For all nations have drunk the wine of the passion of her sexual immorality, and the kings of the earth have committed immorality with her, and the merchants of the earth have grown rich from the power of her luxurious living." Then I heard another voice from heaven saying, "Come out of her, my people, lest you take part in her sins, lest you share in her plagues; for her sins are heaped as high as heaven, and God has remembered her iniquities. Pay her back as she herself has paid back others, and repay her double for her deeds; mix a double portion for her in the cup she has mixed. As she glorified herself and lived in luxury, so give her a like measure of torment and mourning, since in her heart she says, 'I sit as a queen, I am no widow, and mourning I shall never see.'"
What Babylon will come to know is that the end is near, because Babylon lives in darkness.
Revelation 18:1 ~ " After this I saw another angel coming down from heaven, having great authority, and the earth was made bright with his glory."
Notice a couple of things. "After this," this simply means after Revelation 17 has happened. There is an another angel, this is not one of the seven who was pouring out the bowl judgments. We know it is not the LORD because this angel is having given great authority, God has always had authority. We know one of the bowl judgments was plunging the world into darkness. This is not a spiritual darkness but a physical darkness. Then all of a sudden an angel appears in the heavens coming down illuminated and they can see this. In fact it is the only thing they can see and the people will know that something very, very bizarre is going on.
Be very careful when you begin researching some of this stuff on your own from the roots of ancient Babylon, Tammuz, Nimrod and Semiramis, on your computer, because you will find yourself at websites dealing with black and white witchcraft, demonism, and things that can be very dangerous is you are not rooted in the truth of God's word. You will find yourself in Nineveh and Babylon!
What will be of Babylon? We know for sure that it is certainly a system of spiritual doctrine and influence according to Revelation 17. If you want to compare things look at the European Union's Constitution versus the United States Constitution. The US Constitution contains 13 pages if you count the signature page, but the EU Constitution is 551 pages long. Ours begins with the words, "We the people," which means a government ran by the will of the people. When you read the EU Constitution, it is unbelievable. It asks for all the EU participants to pledge their allegiance to the government, that the government presides over and will take care of you. It is the government that demands the agreement of the people. It is a demonic agenda. God is mentioned in the US Constitution while God is NEVER mentioned in the EU Constitution. This EU Constitution will be the basis of a system that will be the perfect platform to allow man to be his own god. How do we know this? Because it is the antichrist that in that time will declare himself to be God and all the people will believe it.
This is a humanistic doctrine. We are talking about a global system, a Babylonia political power = Rome, a Babylonian religious headquarters = Jerusalem and a physical Babylonian city = New Babylon, Iraq. In totality, it is the Babylonian system! An all encompassing global attempt by man to create a utopia on earth. A world without God. The trees are god. The fish are god. The earth is god and man is god.
This is humanism defined and the world is currently en route to Babylon and it will be mankind's final stand. Babylon will come to know the end is near because Babylon lives in sinful practices.
Revelation 18:2 ~ "And he called out with a mighty voice, "Fallen, fallen is Babylon the
great! She has become a dwelling place for demons, a haunt for every
unclean spirit, a haunt for every unclean bird, a haunt for every
unclean and detestable beast."
Note that there is now a new messenger that is bringing a most important message and his rank is tremendous.
Revelation 14:8 ~ "Another angel, a second, followed, saying, "Fallen, fallen is Babylon the great, she who made all nations drink the wine of passion of her sexual immorality."
This event was announced previously in Revelation. This is the same event. So why does the angel say that Babylon has fallen twice?
Remember the woman riding on the back of the beast, which we know is the false religious system, and in the end, the beast will turn and consume her with fire. He will use her as long as he needs her. This takes place during the first 3 1/2 years of the Tribulation Period. Midpoint he will turn and consume her why? Because when he consumes her, he will turn to the world and declare himself to be God. In what city in Israel does this happen? In the newly built temple in Jerusalem. This commences the last 3 1/2 years of the Tribulation Period.
It is announced twice because (1) that false religious system is fallen and now (2) that commercial Babylon is fallen as well. Babylon is not only a geographical location, it is not only a false belief system, but it is also these entities of worship and of this economy. In essence to restate what the angel is declaring is "Chapter 17 has fallen and now Chapter 18 has fallen. Babylon is over! This is the announcement!
Isaiah 21:9 ~ "And behold, here come riders, horsemen in pairs! And he answered, "Fallen, fallen is Babylon; and all the carved images of her gods he has shattered the the ground."
This was written nearly 3000 years ago and 1000 years before the New Testament. The two Babylons are like a single coin with two faces. When we look at the Greek Euro we can see the woman riding the beast. To the right is the symbol for the European Union, 12 stars. Symbolism is important. On the US flag we have 50 stars with 13 stripes which represent the 13 original colonies with the 50 states that make up the USA. This coin is an active currency in the world today, and we know that it takes approximately 1.31 US dollars to buy 1 Euro. This is changing very rapidly and the dollar is slowly coming in second in the world.
The woman riding the beast on the coin represents the past. The European Union is mentioned as reunification of Europe why? Because Europe was unified once before. When was the last time Europe was unified? Under the Roman Empire. This currency has symbols that goes back thousands and thousands of years ago. Depending on the culture, the woman and the beast, represent Europa an Zeus or Europa and Jupiter. This are the ancient religions of Babylon.
You have thus a coin with a religious system being represented by Revelation 17. You have an economic system represented by Revelation 18 and currently we have a system of ancient Babylonianism working right now as a current usable currency in the world. How can you doubt any of this as either a believer or non believer living in the world? This is all being played out before our very eyes. But like I have also said, research it for yourself.
Father, I come to You, confessing my sin and asking for Your forgiveness. I thank you, Lord, for You have promised that if I will confess my sins, You will be faithful to forgive me and cleanse me from all unrighteousness. I want to turn from my sins and live in Your will. I ask that You give me the power through Your Holy Spirit to live the right way.
I thank You that Jesus Christ died on the cross, paying the price for my sins, and then rose from the dead. I accept Him now as my Savior, my Lord, and my Friend. Thank You for giving me new life in Christ. I surrender myself to You; make me what You want me to be. In Jesus' name. Amen!
