In our first and second articles, CIS proved that God considers Babylon the Great A SINGULAR NATION. She is not a GROUP OF NATIONS BROUGHT TOGETHER, as the EC, but is instead A SINGULAR NATION FROM HER BIRTH ONWARDS. God utterly denies the modern concept that Babylon is simply a SYSTEM that spans the world. It is much more than that.
The identity of Babylon the Great as A NATION is of vital importance to us as prophetic students, for it is Babylon that goes forth in the time of the end and conquers the entire world. According to Isaiah 14, it is the KING OF BABYLON that is the ANTICHRIST, whose name is LUCIFER. The implication of Scripture is that this man, LUCIFER, is the king of Babylon the NATION, AND THE CITY. That means, for example, that if America is BABYLON, then she will, through the United Nations, become involved in areas all over the world, as she tries to force her NEW WORLD ORDER ON THE ENTIRE PLANET.
We looked at several of the key parameters laid down by the Lord for us to identify this last END TIME GREAT NATION. Jesus said that history would repeat itself, and that as it was in the days of Noah, so would it be again at the close of the age. This is an important parameter for us, for Noah lived 950 years, and lived 350 of those years on THIS SIDE OF THE FLOOD. Noah saw NIMROD'S NATION CALLED BABYLONIA. He also say THE GREAT CITY BABYLON, that was the QUEEN CITY OF BABYLONIA. Near this great city Babylon Nimrod built a TOWER, called the TOWER OF BABEL, which means both "GATE OF GOD", and also "CONFUSION". These parameters are VERY STRICT INDEED, for as we approach the time of the end, A COUNTERPART MODERN NATION WITH THE SAME CHARACTERISTICS OF ANCIENT BABYLON MUST ARISE and form an IDENTICAL PATTERN.
In other words, THERE WILL EMERGE IN THE LATTER DAYS, A GREAT MODERN NATION, which will be for it's time, the EQUIVALENT of ancient Babylon under NIMROD, in POWER, RELIGIOUS OUTLOOK, POLITICAL STRUCTURE, ETC. Because ancient Babylonia under Nimrod was a SINGULAR NATION, and within its national borders was a GREAT CITY that reflected the power and prestige of the nation itself, we must then look for ITS COUNTERPART, an OFFSPRING, A DESCENDENT, A "DAUGHTER" OF ANCIENT BABYLON. "Like mother, like daughter" would be the sum of it all.
When we apply these parameters, we then must look for a SINGULAR NATION, and within that NATION we must FIND A GREAT CITY, and near that GREAT CITY, we must find A TOWER OF BABEL that represents what ancient Babylon represented: ONE WORLD GOVERNMENT, ONE WORLD RELIGION, AND ONE WORLD ECONOMIC SYSTEM, all of which were true under NIMROD, who DEFIED GOD, and went into UTTER REBELLION against the commands of the LORD.
"And God blessed Noah and his sons, and said unto them, BE FRUITFUL, AND MULTIPLY, AND
The command of God to Noah and to his sons was for them to go forth and replenish the entire earth. It was stated again in Genesis 9:7. In other words, GOD WANTED THEM TO SPREAD OUT, and to GO FORTH and spread over the entire earth. One of the sons of Noah was Ham. Ham had a son called CUSH. Cush begat NIMROD. This is only twice removed from Noah, a span of time not far from the flood itself. Nimrod became a MIGHTY MAN, A MIGHTY HUNTER BEFORE THE LORD. The beginning of HIS KINGDOM WAS BABEL (Genesis 10:8-10). The command of God was to SPREAD OUT AND REPLENISH THE EARTH. Nimrod and his ruling elite elected to FORGE A SINGULAR CITY, and to build A TOWER THAT REACHED UNTO HEAVEN:
"And the whole earth was of ONE LANGUAGE,
And it came to pass, as they journeyed from the east, that they found a plain in the land of SHINAR; AND THEY DWELT THERE.
And they said one to another, Go to, let us
and BURN THEM THOROUGHLY.
And they had BRICK FOR STONE, and slime had they for mortar.
And they said, Go to,
BUILD US A CITY
WHOSE TOP MAY REACH UNTO HEAVEN;
AND LET US MAKE US
ABROAD UPON THE FACE OF THE WHOLE EARTH
Now the command of the Lord was TO SCATTER AND REPLENISH. Nimrod, however, said LET US STAY AND MAKE US A NAME, LET US BUILD A GREAT CITY AND TOWER, and BY COLLECTIVE POWER we will NOT BE SCATTERED. There are several important things to note here:
1. Their city was of brick and put together with slime (pitch). The modern day equivalent is CEMENT BLOCK, STONE AND OUR PITCH IS CEMENT MORTAR. They were BUILDERS OF CITIES. Modern Babylon will build CEMENT CITIES.
2. They elected to DEFY GOD and to COLLECTIVELY STATE TO GOD, "WE WILL NOT BE SCATTERED. We shall stay, and WE SHALL BUILD US A TOWER RIGHT INTO HEAVEN ITSELF. WE SHALL ASCEND INTO THE HEAVENS. WE SHALL DO AS WE PLEASE." It was a COLLECTIVE EFFORT ON THE PART OF MANKIND TO DEFY GOD AND HIS COMMANDS. Instead of keeping NATIONS, KINDREDS, TONGUES, latter day man will attempt to MELT THEM TOGETHER, under force of law and being "politcally correct". Under the laws of "tolerance" and "brotherhood", and "peace" and "love", mankind will forge a latter day UTOPIA under the watchful eyes of an elite "priesthood", known as the "wise men", or the "guardians". No matter what the name, the INTENT is the same.
Isaiah Chapter 14 shows us this very same attitude on the part of the KING OF BABYLON, who gathers the WHOLE WORLD UNTO HIMSELF, and he RULES FROM A GREAT CITY, and from a TOWER IN THAT CITY.
3. The symbol of THIS COLLECTIVE EFFORT OF UNIFIED MANKIND WAS THE GREAT TOWER. The great tower was THE SYMBOL OF REBELLION, and the central part of that rebellion was TO UNIFY, TO FORGE A ONE WORLD SYSTEM, A COLLECTIVE SYSTEM under one despot, Nimrod!
So from its beginning, Babylon means:
That tower, therefore, represents ONE WORLD GOVERNMENT UNDER ONE RULER, A UNIFIED MANKIND WITH A UNIFIED CODE OF LAW, A UNIFIED SYSTEM OF ECONOMICS, AND A UNIFIED RELIGION THAT IS IN DIRECT CONTRADICTION TO GOD.
The BABYLON OF THE END TIMES must gather together all the NATIONS and PEOPLES, and TONGUES that GOD SCATTERED at the original BABYLON. Babylon defies God, who wants NATIONS, KINGDOMS, TRIBES, TONGUES AND PEOPLES. It is HIS DECREE that man SHOULD BE SCATTERED, and that there is NOTHING WRONG AT ALL WITH VARIOUS TRIBES AND NATIONALITIES. God sees it AS GOOD. Can we prove that God does not want a unified mankind, a COLLECTIVE EFFORT?
"And the Lord came down to see the
which the CHILDREN OF MEN BUILDED.
And the Lord said,
AND THEY HAVE ALL
THEY BEGIN TO DO:
will be restrained from them, which they have imagined to do.
Go to, let us go down, and there
CONFOUND THEIR LANGUAGE,
that they may
NOT UNDERSTAND ONE ANOTHER'S SPEECH.
SO THE LORD SCATTERED THEM ABROAD FROM THENCE UPON THE FACE OF ALL THE EARTH: and THEY LEFT OFF
TO BUILD THE CITY.
Therefore is the name of it BABEL; BECAUSE THE LORD DID THERE CONFOUND THE LANGUAGE OF ALL THE EARTH: and from THENCE DID THE LORD
UPON THE FACE OF ALL THE EARTH
By confusing the speech of this UNIFIED GROUP, so that they could not understand each other, they had no choice but to do as God has commanded they do in the first place: SCATTER AND REPLENISH THE EARTH!! This is the BIRTH OF ALL TRIBES, NATIONS AND TONGUES OF TODAY. No sooner had God scattered the TRIBES OF MANKIND, when a major cataclysmic event occurred:
"And unto Eber were born two sons: the name of one WAS PELEG;
FOR IN HIS DAYS
WAS THE EARTH
To keep mankind from coming together again, GOD DIVIDED THE EARTH, and that occurred about a hundred years or so after the SCATTERING. The division of the earth was literal, because before the flood the earth, the land mass was ONE UNIT, and the SEAS WERE ONE UNIT. The flood itself sets the stage for BABEL, and the massive EARTHQUAKES THAT DIVIDE THE WORLD INTO THE LAND MASSES WE KNOW TODAY. When God scattered man at Babel, He waited for them to migrate far enough away from each other so that WHEN THE EARTH WAS SPLIT INTO THE CONTINENTS OF TODAY, they would totally lose track of each other!!
He had to do this because of the TIME SCHEDULE HE WAS USING, because of CHRIST, because of ISRAEL, because of the GENTILES, and because of THE LATTER DAYS, WHEN MANKIND WOULD AGAIN UNITE AGAINST GOD, AND AGAINST HIS ANOINTED. It would take them THOUSANDS OF YEARS TO ARRIVE AT THE FINAL REBELLION POINT. It is all planned by the MIND OF GOD, to fit EXACTLY WITHIN THE 6000 YEARS OF PROBATION GOD HAS ALLOTTED MAN.
This is why we find the BABYLONIAN RELIGIOUS SYSTEM IN EVERY KNOWN RACE OF MAN TODAY. It does not matter where you go upon earth, THERE IS A COMMON DENOMINATOR: BABEL AND NIMROD'S RELIGION. You do not need land "bridges" and all of the hokus pocus of unregenerate minds, you need only believe the Bible. IT HAPPENED JUST LIKE IT SAID IT HAPPENED. Does God still want the nations divided, or has He changed His mind? The entire story of Bible prophecy for the last days is THE ATTEMPT OF MANKIND TO ONCE AGAIN UNIFY INTO A COLLECTIVE, UNIFIED GROUP, WHICH THINKS ALIKE, BELIEVES ALIKE, ACTS ALIKE AND IS IN UTTER REBELLION AGAINST GOD!!
The conspiracy of Psalm 2:1-3 is a conspiracy to UNIFY ALL MANKIND INTO ONE UNIT WITH ONE LEADER: LUCIFER!! It is this move to unify man at the time of the end that is THE ANTICHRIST SPIRIT, THE SPIRIT OF NIMROD!! THE NATION BABYLON IS THE CENTER OF THAT MOVEMENT. Because God SCATTERED THE PEOPLE, and caused the formation of NATIONS, KINGDOMS, TRIBES AND TONGUES, then BABYLON THE GREAT, THE NATION OF THE END TIMES, OF THE LATTER DAYS, would be A NATION THAT WOULD REVERSE THAT TREND, THAT WOULD GATHER TOGETHER PEOPLE OF ALL NATIONS, TRIBES AND TONGUES AND FORGE ONE SINGULAR, UNIFIED NATION. The very motto of America is OUT OF MANY, ONE!!!! This nation, formed by members of all the tribes of the earth, would be the BEGINNING OF A NEW BABYLON, A "NEW" CITY, A "NEW" EMPIRE, AND A TOWER.
Because Jesus said that as it was, so shall it be, we need only then look FOR A SINGULAR NATION that has WITHIN ITS BORDERS A GREAT CITY, and by that great city, A TOWER which represents the VERY SAME SPIRIT OF NIMROD: A UNIFIED MANKIND. It is that simple!! Don't complicate prophecy, which we all tend to do.
This NATION must be, just as Babylonia was for its time, the MOST POWERFUL NATION/KINGDOM UPON EARTH! This nation will, BY ITSELF, REPRESENT THE UNIFICATION OF MANKIND INTO ONE GROUP, OR "OUT OF MANY, ONE". In other words, PEOPLE FROM EVERY TRIBE, TONGUE, NATION AND PLACE WILL COME TO THIS LATTER DAY LOCATION AND FORGE FOR THEMSELVES ONE NATION. They will UNIFY THEMSELVES TOGETHER and out of this UNIFICATION OF MAN will come the GREATEST NATION TO EVER BE ON PLANET EARTH!!
Is not the motto of the United States GREAT SEAL "E PLURIBUS UNUM?" Does not that mean 'OUT OF MANY, ONE?" Is not the United States comprised of every race, tribe, tongue, nation and place? Have they not come to America in search of FREEDOM? There is no other nation upon earth like the United States. No other nation can boast of the MIXED HERITAGE OF AMERICA. Most nations are comprised of ONE PRIMARY ETHNIC GROUP. America is indeed THE MELTING POT OF THE WORLD. She has indeed FORGED THE MOST POWERFUL NATIONAL ENTITY EVER TO GRACE THIS PLANET!
The Bible does not contradict itself, and Jesus said that AS IT WAS, SO SHALL IT BE. Babylon, the END TIME NATION, must REPRESENT THE SAME CONCEPT OF REBELLION AS ANCIENT BABYLONIA. There is no other nation upon earth that represents THIS STRICT PARAMETER MORE THAN AMERICA. Jeremiah the prophet agrees:
"A sword is upon her horses, and upon their chariots, AND UPON ALL THE
THAT ARE IN
and they shall BECOME
a SWORD IS UPON HER TREASURIES; and THEY SHALL BE ROBBED
There are many parameters within this verse, which will be covered later, but the one we want to look at is ALL THE MINGLED PEOPLE THAT ARE IN THE MIDST OF BABYLON THE NATION. The key word here is "mingled" which is "ereb", (#6154 in Strong's), which means A MIXTURE OR MONGREL NATION, A MINGLED PEOPLE, A MIXED MULTITUDE.
Babylon is, therefore, just as Jesus claimed it would be, A NATION OF A MULTITUDE OF TRIBES, TONGUES, PEOPLES, AND RACES. Because Babylon is called A NATION by God Himself, it is obvious that ALL OF THESE MIXED MULTITUDES come to the SHORES OF AMERICA to FORGE THEIR MIGHTY SINGULAR NATION. You see, God never lies, only mankind lies. The nation, Babylon the Great then, IS A NATION MADE UP OF MIXED MULTITUDES, ALL OF WHOM UNIFY into a COLLECTIVE EFFORT to forge the GREATEST NATION ON EARTH. One of the parameters of Babylon is that SHE IS THE SEAT OF THE KINGDOMS, THE THRONE OF THE WHOLE EARTH:
"Come down, and sit in the dust, O virgin DAUGHTER OF BABYLON,
sit on the ground:
THERE IS NO THRONE,
O daughter of the Chaldeans: for thou shalt no longer be called
TENDER AND DELICATE
"Sit thou silent, and get thee into darkness, O DAUGHTER OF THE CHALDEANS: FOR THOU SHALT NO MORE BE CALLED,
Babylon THE NATION is portrayed always as the THRONE OF THE EARTH, and that SHE HERSELF, AS A NATION, SITS UPON THAT THRONE, THE LADY, THE QUEEN OF ALL KINGDOMS. That has some implications we must look at. First of all, IF BABYLON THE NATION IS THE THRONE OF THE NATIONS, then where is the QUEEN'S COURT? Where do all of the other nations COME TO SOLVE THEIR PROBLEMS? If Babylon is THE SEAT OF ALL THE KINGDOMS UPON EARTH, then it should be obvious that WITHIN THE BORDERS OF BABYLON WILL SIT A "THRONE" FROM WHICH SHE WILL RULE THE ENTIRE PLANET:
which thou sawest
THAT GREAT CITY,
WHICH REIGNETH OVER THE KINGS OF THE EARTH (Revelation 17:18)."
Now many expositors will tell you that the WOMAN is a RELIGIOUS SYSTEM, that she represents A SYSTEM. That is only a HALF TRUTH, and a half truth in the things of God is very dangerous. John tells you EXACTLY who the woman is: THE GREAT CITY. Why cannot we accept EXACTLY what John tells us? Why do we have to read into it ALL SORTS OF FANCIFUL FICTION? If John, who is speaking through the SPIRIT OF CHRIST, tells us that THE WOMAN IS A GREAT CITY, it means what it says. What right do we have TO ADD TO IT, OR TO TAKE SOMETHING AWAY FROM IT? Do you suppose that Jesus knows what He is speaking of? If Jesus REALLY MEANT TO SAY THE WOMAN WAS A RELIGIOUS SYSTEM, do you suppose HE MIGHT HAVE SAID THAT? Why do we INSIST UPON TWISTING AND PERVERTING SCRIPTURE TO MAKE IT SAY WHAT IT DOES NOT SAY?
The word "city" MEANS A REAL, LITERAL CITY. THE WOMAN IS THEREFORE, ACCORDING TO JESUS CHRIST, WHO OUGHT TO KNOW, A REAL LITERAL CITY. If He meant RELIGIOUS SYSTEM, HE WOULD HAVE SAID SO.
Because we can prove that BABYLON IS THE SEAT OF ALL THE KINGDOMS OF EARTH, AND CONTAINS THE THRONE OF THE KINGDOMS, then where is THE COURT? Why, says Jesus, that is simple: THE COURT, THE THRONE OF BABYLON THE NATION, IS WITHIN THE GREAT CITY BABYLON!! If this THRONE "reigneth over the kings of the earth", then OBVIOUSLY IT HAS WORLDWIDE POWER, AND IT MUST REPRESENT A FORM OF INTERNATIONAL GOVERNMENT. You cannot rule over the kings of the earth unless you have A STRUCTURE OF SOME TYPE TO RULE FROM. Because KINGS rule over KINGDOMS, then THIS THRONE MUST BE, HAS TO BE, A FORUM OF INTERNATIONAL AFFAIRS!! We then need only to look FOR A LITERAL CITY, WITHIN THE BORDERS OF A SINGULAR, LITERAL NATION, that HOUSES A TOWER THAT REPRESENTS AN INTERNATIONAL FORUM, AN ENTITY THAT HAS A STRUCTURE FROM WHICH IT ISSUES EDICTS, DECREES, RESOLUTIONS, LAWS, ETC.
Because we also know that God always WARNS HIS PEOPLE, we might even find an actual STATUE OF A LADY NEAR THIS GREAT CITY, A LADY THAT REPRESENTS FULL SCALE REBELLION AGAINST GOD. Surprise, surprise!!! Coincidence of all coincidences. Within AMERICA THE NATION, that is a very real and very literal nation among the nations of the world, SITS A VERY REAL AND VERY LITERAL CITY, CALLED "NEW" YORK CITY, and surprise again, WITHIN THE CITY OF "NEW YORK" there RISES ON THE LANDSCAPE A TOWER, A MIGHTY TOWER, BUILT BY THE CHILDREN OF MEN, MADE OF BRICK AND CLAY, MADE OUT OF CEMENT AND SILICA, A HOUSE ON THE EAST RIVER, CALLED THE UNITED NATIONS, A FORUM FOR INTERNATIONAL AFFAIRS, that regularly issues EDICTS, DECREES, RESOLUTIONS, AND LAWS.
And what does this TOWER OF BABEL REPRESENT today? It represents THE UNIFICATION OF MANKIND, OF THE COLLECTIVE EFFORT OF MAN TO JOIN TOGETHER THAT WHICH GOD HAS SPLIT ASUNDER. It represents the HEIGHT OF ARROGANCE AGAINST GOD, AGAINST CHRIST, AGAINST EVERYTHING GOD COMMANDED. Now then, if this is not enough evidence for you, we have another coincidence: IN THE HARBOR OF NEW YORK CITY IS A GIANT STATUE OF A WOMAN, given to America by A LEADING MASON, and this woman WITH HER GOLDEN TORCH (CUP) STANDS UPON A "STAR" AND SHE HAS BROKEN THE CHAINS THAT BIND HER FEET IN COMPLETE FULFILLMENT OF PSALM 2, "Let us BREAK THEIR CHORDS FROM US".
You see, THE EVIDENCE IS THERE. If it is not seen, it is because of SPIRITUAL BLINDESS, and because THE HEART DOES NOT WANT IT TO BE SO. The woman, therefore, IS NEW YORK CITY, For Jesus Christ claims the woman IS A LITERAL CITY THAT REIGNS OVER THE KINGS OF THE EARTH. That is why the United Nations is being brought up, BEFORE YOUR VERY EYES, to FULL POWER. The woman is nothing more than A CITY. We have to find out what THE CITY REPRESENTS. Jesus told us in His Olivet Discourse what it represents:
AS IT WAS IN THE DAYS OF NOAH!!!
Don't make prophecy complicated, because it isn't. It's very simple if you just allow God to speak, and if we would only LISTEN. The trouble with the American Christian is ARROGANCE. PRIDE AND A HAUGHTY HEART. Combine those together and you have GROSS SPIRITUAL DARKNESS. They ARE DEAF, and CANNOT LISTEN, they CANNOT HEAR. They are TELLING GOD WHAT HIS WORD MEANS, and not the OTHER WAY ROUND. You don't do that to God. You do not approach THE KING OF THE UNIVERSE IN THAT FASHION. If you do, you end up IN ETERNAL RUIN. YOU END UP IN ETERNAL LOSS. YOU END UP IN THE FIRES OF HELL AND DAMNATION, because you WOULD NOT BE HUMBLED. The American Christian prophetic scholar by and large HAS SUCH A BUILT IN BIAS, A BUILT IN THEOLOGY AND A BUILT IN OPINION that he/she cannot, and will not, ALLOW GOD TO SPEAK TO THEM.
Approach the Word of God AS A CHILD WHO KNOWS NOTHING WHATEVER. Approach THE WORD OF GOD with WIDEEYED INNOCENCE AND EXCITEMENT. Approach GOD WITH A HUMBLE HEART, A HEART IN SEARCH OF TRUTH, and not a HEART FULFILLED WITH A DESIRE TO "PROVE" ONE RIGHT. Approach God as THE SOVEREIGN THAT HE IS, YOUR CREATOR, YOUR SUSTAINER. He knows whereof HE SPEAKS, and the FALSE SHEPHERDS OF BABYLON ARE LIARS, DECEIVERS, FRAUDS, HYPOCRITES. Their eternal destiny, if they do not repent, IS ETERNAL RUIN. You don't have to follow them. YOU DON'T WANT TO FOLLOW THEM. DEPART FROM THEM, for their salvation message is FRAUDULENT, and their prophetic message is UTTERLY IN ERROR.
Jesus means exactly what He says, and in the case of THE GREAT CITY BABYLON, it lays WITHIN THE NATION BABYLON. THE NATION AND THE CITY have a common characteristic, and that is a REFLECTION OF ANCIENT BABYLON under Nimrod. As America represents a UNIFICATION OF A MIXED MULTITUDE FORMING ONE GREAT NATION, then so too does the TOWER WITHIN THE CITY OF BABYLON REPRESENT UNITY, THE UNIFICATION OF MAN INTO ONE RACE, INTO A MONGRELIZED RACE, with NO TRIBES, NATIONS OR TONGUES. Now you know why the UN and U.S. Department of Education is so bent on teaching American children that they ARE ONE WITH THE WORLD. "We are the world", goes the song of Lucifer, "We are the Children." WHAT WAS, MUST BE AGAIN.
Now if what Jesus tells us is the truth, we should then find that all of the prophets of God would agree, and there would be no contradictions in their words to describe THE NATION BABYLON, which is THE SEAT OF THE GREAT CITY, which is THE SEAT OF THE TOWER OF BABEL!! We shall now look at a variety of parameters laid down by the prophets that PROVE AMERICA IS INDEED AND IN FACT THE NATION BABYLON THE GREAT!! Because there are so many of them, and we have space limitations in this issue, we will list only a few, but have included A LARGER LIST from our "BEACON", and ask you to study it out for YOURSELF.
One of the parameters against Babylon is the RISE OF FALSE CHRISTIAN LEADERS, for we can easily prove that Babylon the Great lives DURING THE LATTER PART OF THE CHRISTIAN ERA. She is also alive and thriving at the time MODERN ISRAEL IS REBORN AND RISES UP IN THE MIDDLE EAST, and in fact AIDS ISRAEL'S RISE TO POWER, AND THEN BETRAYS HER IN THE MIDDLE OF THE TRIBULATION.
"My people hath been
have CAUSED THEM TO
they have turned them away ON THE MOUNTAINS:
they have GONE FROM MOUNTAIN TO HILL, they have FORGOTTEN THEIR RESTING PLACE
Out of Babylon the Great will come A WHOLE HOST OF FALSE CHRISTIAN LEADERS, that is TEACHERS, PREACHERS AND EVANGELISTS. They are false because THEY LEAD GOD'S PEOPLE TOTALLY ASTRAY. Their RESTING PLACE is in fact IN JESUS CHRIST, or we could say IN REGENERATION, IN UNION WITH CHRIST, IN UNION VIA THE REBIRTH, A NEW HEART. The Christians of Babylon will HAVE FORGOTTEN THEIR TRUE RESTING PLACE. They will have GONE UTTERLY ASTRAY, lead by FALSE CHRISTIAN LEADERS WHO PREACH A GOSPEL OF SALVATION THAT IS FALSE. We cover these people in the article called OFFENSE THIS WAY COMES. The other group of God's people that are lead astray are the JEWS, who are lead astray by their leaders into forging the modern state of Israel WITHOUT THE MESSIAH. It ends in total and complete disaster.
There are other very important parameters we must look at. One of the key ones is that Babylon is a NATION WITH A GREAT SPACE PROGRAM:
"Though Babylon SHOULD
and though she should FORTIFY
THE HEIGHT OF HER STRENGTH,
yet from me shall spoilers come unto her, saith the Lord (Jeremiah 51:53)."
This verse means literally exactly what it says. Babylon the Great, as A NATION, will, in its rise to maximum power, build a huge aviation and space industry. It will have the largest and most complex aviation system in the entire world. It will have hundreds of airports, and have the largest civilian and military air fleet the world has ever seen! From their preoccupation with aviation, will come A LITERAL SPACE PROGRAM, and it will develop into A HUGE SPACE PROGRAM, AND WILL MOUNT UP INTO THE HEAVENS. This has ramifications we must think about.
This means that BABYLON will be a HIGH TECH NATION. She will be the MOST ADVANCED NATION UPON EARTH when it comes to technological know how. She will develop a HUGE AVIATION DEFENSE SYSTEM, and will have a HUGE COMMERCIAL AIR TRAFFIC SYSTEM. That means AIRPORTS, RADAR, AIR TRAFFIC CONTROL, and her land will "WHISPER" WITH THE SOUND OF WINGS AS THEY SLICE THROUGH THE COLD AIR ALOFT.
She not only ascends into the heavens, SHE FORTIFIES THEM. She develops the most advanced FORTIFICATIONS SYSTEM THE WORLD HAS EVER SEEN. Air defense radar, missile systems, star wars types of technology, laser weapons controlled by mirrors in outer space, etc., will be used to FORTIFY THE HEIGHT OF HER STRENGTH. That also means FIGHTERS AND BOMBERS, RECONNAISSANCE AIRCRAFT, and all that goes with it. That also means A HUGE MILITARY BUDGET WITH A HUGE MILITARY MACHINE WILL BE FINANCED BY THE PEOPLE OF BABYLON. Her air force will be the number one air force in the entire world. NO OTHER NATION WILL BE ABLE TO MATCH HER MILITARY AIR POWER.
All of this is true only of America. Rome is often mentioned for Babylon, as the "city on the seven hills". Does Rome have a huge Air Force? Does the Vatican have a huge space program? Has the Vatican gone to the moon and beyond? What about Iraq? Does Iraq fulfill this most important parameter? Does Iraq have the largest and most powerful air force in the world? Has her space program taken her to the stars? Yet the FALSE PROPHETS OF BABYLON WOULD ATTEMPT TO TELL YOU THAT BABYLON IS ROME OR IRAQ. Listen to God, and do not heed the voice of false prophets.
The nation Babylon will have a LEADER, a PRESIDENT, or HEAD OF STATE, that is the FOUNDER OF THE SPACE PROGRAM. The outward manifestation of a SPACE PROGRAM is because of secret HIDDEN QUEST to BECOME AS GOD, to ascend ABOVE THE STARS OF GOD, TO BE LIKE THE MOST HIGH:
"For thou hast said in thine heart,
I WILL ASCEND
I WILL EXALT MY THRONE ABOVE
THE STARS OF GOD:
I WILL SIT ALSO UPON
IN THE SIDES OF THE NORTH
Lucifer's innermost desire IS TO BE LIKE THE MOST HIGH. Because Satan cannot CREATE ANYTHING, but can only DUPLICATE VIA TECHNOLOGY THE POWERS OF GOD, and also has a limited SUPERNATURAL POWER, he will use TECHNOLOGY as one of his primary methods to usurp the THRONE OF GOD, AND TAKE IT FROM CHRIST. The Babylonians WORSHIP THEIR TECHNOLOGY, and in fact, it REPLACES GOD, AND BECOMES A "GOD" IN ITS OWN WAY. It is true that we had a President launch America into space. His name was John F. Kennedy. It is interesting to note that KENNEDY WAS THE PRIME MOVER OF AMERICA GOING TO THE STARS AND BEYOND. That does not make Kennedy Lucifer, but it is a literal fact that OUT OF AMERICA CAME A LEADER WHO SAID HE WOULD ASCEND INTO THE HEAVENS. CIS has a speech that Kennedy made in which he said that very thing.
When you consider these parameters carefully, a portrait of a mighty and huge INDUSTRIAL POWER BEGINS TO EMERGE, a nation that forges THE LARGEST TRADING SYSTEM IN THE ENTIRE WORLD. It is her technology, her aviation and her space program, and all of the spin-offs that come from it, that made AMERICA BABYLON THE LEADER OF THE WORLD.
"Thou are wearied
in the multitude
from these things that shall come upon thee
Babylon's system of government is via COUNSEL. In other words, she is run BY ADVISORS, by A COUNSEL. In its most literal sense, this would mean that Babylon is a REPUBLIC OR A DEMOCRACY, because a DICTATORSHIP is not run by counsels, in the most strict sense of the word. In a dictatorship, the counsels MAY BE HEARD, but the RULER MAKES THE DECISION. The implication of this prophecy is that the governmental process begins to break down due to the infighting between all of the groups that actually GOVERN the nation, which is the OPPOSITE OF A DICTATORSHIP. She enters into GRIDLOCK, and those areas that need vital attention do not get it. The nation begins a slow and gradual decline to her total demise. Our counsels in America would of course be the Senate and House of Representatives, then we have the special interest groups that lobby for their causes, and the entire system collapses upon itself. America would fulfill this aspect of the prophecy to the letter.
It is also interesting to note that God mocks the leaders of Babylon and tells them to call up their astrologers, the STARGAZERS, who are the MONTHLY PROGNOSTICATORS. It is a truth that Washington is filled with astrologers that are employed by our nations leaders. President Reagan never made a move without prior approval from an astrologer. The Military is deeply involved in all sorts of occult activity. The American people would be shocked at the extent of this activity in Washington.
"O thou that dwellest upon
ABUNDANT IN TREASURES, thine end is come,
and the measure of thy covetousness
Babylon is a nation that sits upon many waters, as has been previously reviewed, which means it is A SEACOAST NATION, with many seaports. She is a huge EXPORTER AND IMPORTER OF GOODS ,and trades with every nation that has ships in the seas.
She is abundant in TREASURES, according to Jeremiah. The word "treasures" is "owtsar" which means literally DEPOSITORY or STOREHOUSE. We will find vast STOREHOUSES IN BABYLON. She is filled with WAREHOUSES FOR HER GOODS AND PRODUCTS. Her vast wealth requires huge buildings to hold her vast hordes of manufactured products. She therefore must have a huge infrastructure of roads to accomplish this vast trading system. Being a warm water seacoast nation, she will have a multitude of seaports on her coasts to conduct and build up this VAST INTERNATIONAL TRADING NETWORK. America fulfills this parameter to the exact letter, for there is no other nation upon the face of the earth that has the number of SEAPORTS, INTERSTATE HIGHWAYS, HUGE WAREHOUSES, MANUFACTURING PLANTS, SERVICE FACILITIES AND THE HUGE INFRASTRUCTURE TO SUPPORT ALL OF THAT. There is no nation upon earth like AMERICA BABYLON, and no other nation upon earth fulfills these parameters. There are no other people on the face of the earth that have done more than the people of America.
Because she has such a huge infrastructure to support, we would think we would find a reference to her METHOD OF TRANSPORTATION: SHE IS A NATION OF CHARIOTS:
"A sword is upon their HORSES,
and upon their
In this day and age, we call CHARIOTS AUTOMOBILES AND TRUCKS. The United States of America is the largest producer of motor vehicles in the world, if you add trucks and cars together. We are also a MAJOR IMPORTER and EXPORTER of "chariots", and ship them to the four corners of the earth. Indeed, the Apocrypha refers to THE LAND OF THE CHARIOTS IN THE WEST, and calls HER BABYLON. America has been for decades now the leading producer of CHARIOTS.
She is also noted for HER HORSES, as is noted in that verse of Scripture. Many Americans are not aware of it, but this nation is SEARCHED HIGH AND LOW BY BUYERS FROM ALL OVER THE WORLD because we are noted for our HORSES. When God mentions an item, it is an important item, a major item of trade in the MERCHANDISING OF BABYLON. Many of these verses of Scripture contain a number of parameters, with each phrase a different item we must investigate.
Because of space limitations in this issue, we are going to close this article, but in the next one, we shall go much deeper into these parameters. It will become crystal clear to you that America is indeed BABYLON THE GREAT, if it has not been proved to you already, and is destined to undergo a RADICAL TRANSFORMATION AS SHE FALLS TO THE OCCULT FORCES. PLEASE READ AND STUDY THE PAGE FILLED WITH PARAMETERS FOR BABYLON, FOUND IN PART FOUR. YOU WILL FIND THAT AMERICA IS INDEED BABYLON THE GREAT!!
