Before us now is the special document What Is Babylon the
Great?? Here, in considering the subject as a presentation augmenting
the publication BABYLON IS FALLEN, we will consider the history,
and how it relates as far as timing and structure of events, hinged directly to
Daniel’s 70th Week. It is portrayed in different metaphors, signs,
and symbols with concentration in Revelation 17 – 18 upon the system of
spiritual bondage, violence, and deceit within the world arena of religion and
politics extending into commerce and finance, indeed the entire mechanism
called “Babylon the Great.”
With regard to Israel and her deliverance from same, it is composed of the nations of the world today understood as represented governmentally in the United Nations international legislative body with its chief constituent being the United States of America, even as the literal city of Rome in the Old Roman Empire set the agenda for the rest of the world in that ancient dynasty, with the Zionist entity riding upon it in manipulation thereof. Democratic republic is the official government that is promoted worldwide, composed even as ancient Greece, and then Rome in particular, with its two-party representation of the people and an emperor or now elected president at its helm. We have termed this empire as Revived Rome / UN / USA which controls the ten kings – the ten toes or feet of the image in Daniel 2 and the ten horns on the head of the beast of Daniel 7:24-27, the latter showing the Zionist entity as the “little horn” that plucks up three: Syria, Jordan, and Egypt in the Six-Day-War of June 1967. We will delve deeply into this scripture from Revelation 17 and 18 which defines the makeup of Babylon the Great revealing a clear line of demarcation as to the working elements. There are two components in this system between “control” in the harlot and “servitude” in the beast she rides or manipulates, which is a symbiotic relationship that keeps both sides, and therefore the whole system, alive until its coming demise now upon us in the end time.
We first give a link to the full reading of Revelation 17-18 preceded by Old Testament scriptures – the Law and the Prophets from which Revelation 17-18 is constructed in the fulfillment of the final scenario of prophecy after Messiah has fulfilled and confirmed the Covenant 70th Week of Daniel 9:24. It is a repeat rendition of the scripture before it, Revelation 16:14-21, the 7th Plague. This is negative within the Plague aspect in its presentation as a judgment against that which is illicit and perverted and therefore ready to be entirely removed for the blessing that will follow. In other words, all the details left out in the 7th Plague presented in Revelation 16:17-21 are meticulously depicted in Revelation 17-18, with the remedy portrayed as the slaying of all enemies to truth in Revelation 19. Once more we find the same progression as we observed so vividly in Daniel 11; repeat presentations give the same scenario with more details, other aspects, and added views of the players on God’s great stage of time and space.
We will first consider the Law and the Prophets and what they reveal which figure into, or are integral parts of, Revelation 17-18, within those Old Testament passages. Please read these listed scriptures which are given in order at the following link or read same in this order from one’s own King James text.
In the Genesis accounts, we find that the original Babel, in the land or plains of Shinar quite literally, was spiritually a kingdom of Nimrod that hunted before the Lord, suggesting establishing a kingdom of violence and compulsion of servitude to a strong military, political force that was organized around a religion, whereby they sought to build a tower to access heaven. If one does research in archeology, he will find this type of building was not as one may at first consider, such as an attempt to literally reach heaven or the physical expanse above, by an ancient skyscraper or a building of hundreds of levels upward. This is rather pyramid in shape, constructed, as stated in Genesis 11, out of bricks and mortar and are called “ziggurats.” The remains of one of the most famous is in the area of ancient Babylon and is called Etemenanki or "House of the Platform between Heaven and Earth."
Our emphasis here is to show the makeup of Babel which extends to the same system called Great Babylon of philosophy of life – mindset – way of thinking, and then politics, and religion over the laity or the people bringing them in servitude to that system.
Philosophy – Mindset – Way of Thinking
Evidenced in the Political and Religious System
Extending from Adam and Eve, seen in Noah’s son Ham predominantly, whose descendants were the Canaanites from which came Nimrod and Babel and later Babylon, we have nothing new as to motivation. It is the Dragon, that Old Serpent the Devil, which we have termed as exactly what it is: The Mindset of self-determination, freewill, and choice. “A mighty hunter before the Lord,” Nimrod shows his mental state to forcefully establish his kingdom, where his political system is controlled and ridden upon by the religion which claims a link between heaven and earth through its priesthood and the temple or tower to heaven they construct. It leads to division of the people and confusion of concepts which extends as well to such physical things as different languages. As people divided and settled in other areas, the confines of those new boundaries over the years and centuries brought even the separation of speech patterns that today are totally different and of no resemblance, one to the other, such as English versus Chinese.
Religion and the Orientation of Politics
This confusion is the result of approaching God while in the
mindset of self-destiny believing God is far from us and we are trying to find
Him, best illustrated by God’s words to Adam once he took this path, “where art
thou?” Religion is established with its claims that it has that answer as to
where, what, and who God is. That concept of faith or understanding then
permeates every facet of life purporting to please this ‘god’ as represented by
the self-appointed, unauthorized priesthood that dictates to the people the
regimen to so please that entity.
The politics follow closely, and over time have proven to divide into basically two factions around their devotion to the religion. One is conservative, rigidly holding to its essential elements, while forming policy and life around that narrow view. The other is liberal with a loose view of the essential elements that in turn forms policy and life for those of this view. The political arena is seen to shift in all empires and dynasties recorded in history as a leader of conservative persuasion would take the government under his or her control and shift back the other direction away from a liberal persuasion, and then vice-versa. This is no more vividly seen than from the Bible history of the kings of Israel or Judah; one king did that which was right and the next one did that which was evil. Of course, this is classified around the conservative view of the Law of Moses and words of the Prophets as being “righteous” and deviation from those standards in the liberals as being “evil.”
Conservative versus Liberal in a Democratic Republic
In any government structure, but exceedingly more so in democratic,
republic governments since Rome, the religiously observant sector of society is
considered “right,” not as a term denoting correctness necessarily. It is more
the thought of a direction toward conservative, already established, norms in
society. The liberal that is constantly challenging those standards for change
to a broader view, away from established norms, is called “left.”
Moving back in ancient history, we find once Israel entered the picture with a definite link to God, this scenario was indeed true, as they departed from their original walk with Him, which they had in Abraham, Moses, and the Prophets and were captured and dispersed in the nations around them in punishment for leaving that relationship. It is in the diaspora, the condition of being dispersed in the nations, that they, as political Zionists, developed a means of pitting one side of this “conservative versus liberal” equation against the other to control the populace of those nations, while trying to manipulate toward their goal of restoring their link with God in the homeland surrounding principally Jerusalem between the Rivers Nile and Euphrates.
Again, in democratic, republic governments, this method of control extends to bringing people to power or leadership by controlling elections, pitting these two factions – conservative / right and liberal / left – against one another, using “wedge-issues” of controversy to affect the outcome and thereby, place the leadership they desire to be in office.
Today this process has become extremely and secretly refined using early educational tests, following one’s history through high school and primarily college, extending to job, marriage partner, driving record, even fraternal and other associational experiences. This process is so thorough that by the time one announces their candidacy for any office, those desiring control in the above manner, have thoroughly vetted the candidate. From there, they are sure they can control them and know basically, their propensities and direction long before they start to assist in directing them into office. Behind the scenes, they start to bring them into the public eye to address evolving issues in the arena to which their prospective candidates will enter in order to have them win the election.
Over time, liberal persuasion erodes the conservative bases and
gains numbers that sway elections in their favor. Thus, what is considered
conservative today, by the standards or norms of 100 years ago, would be seen
by that earlier population as very liberal or even perverted. This is more
easily seen in the views of the elderly concerning the younger generations. By
technology increasing rapid transfer of information and consequently swaying of
the multitudes, what would take decades in the past, before these modern
inventions, can be seen to take root and dominate in a matter of months or even
The problem, of course, as society becomes more generally liberal, the issues to manipulate are greatly reduced to an ineffective status. For example, women voting, prohibition of alcohol, prayer in schools, and certainly racial integration, once potent and volatile subjects polarizing people, so they could be counted on as to how they will vote, lose their strength over time to a point of previous predictability. Thus, we see in more recent times, it is abortion, gun control, environment, etc. that have risen to the volatile position, particularly in Revived Rome / UN / USA.
However, overall, as we have first stated, it is the devoted religious
faction that keeps people in line rigidly, while it is those of lesser
religious orientation that tend to want the deviation, which brings in what the
old norms would see as excesses and a degradation of morals and society. It is around
this religious structure that the politics change and are enforced . . . or
not. Zionists clearly have insight into this structure and have well learned
how to manipulate it up to a point . . . that point being the control of
Jerusalem and the Holy Temple Mount necessary for Jewish claims of
accomplishing the Kingdom of God in the current Zionist State. However, they
will soon find they will be powerless in a democratic republic to effectuate
their conservative / right control over Jerusalem as the unified capitol
according to Jewish understanding in the face of the liberal / left of Revived
Rome / UN / USA and the general sentiments of the world, regarding the Holy
Mount and East Jerusalem.
The simple reason for this final impotency is the result of the former manipulations to a general liberal level; hence, it is now to where those desiring Jerusalem in any manner could not so attain same due to the liberal confusion, eliminating any cohesion to hold Jerusalem by military advantage in the view of the world that has granted Israel a portion of ancient Canaan as a homeland.
As we test the water of the sentiment of general society, once Zionists have taken the control militarily since 1967, which was violation of the original agreement with Revived Rome / UN / USA deemed in 1947/48, via UNGA Resolution 181, they now find their effort to ease rigid persuasions of conservative agendas in the world around them, has taken over the general public. Thus, Zionist liberalism that was needed to arrive at a Jewish homeland via the UN initially has been absorbed. This has now brought the swing of the door in the other direction to currently address Palestinian rights to live in a democracy with their full citizenship as well. The very conservative view of Jerusalem under the ancient religion of Judaism and its strict standards exercised through orthodoxy will not compute in such control with the remainder of the world and its, now, inherent lax view in the majority toward religion.
The very core of religion has been eroded, itself, into a more liberal stand in general. What goes around comes around to where that very method used, liberalism, to attain the Zionist goals at the beginning, here, at the final goal line, defeats their own purpose, as the world addresses equality of rights extended to Palestinians under Zionist oppression and occupation. It is now set alongside the original agreement meted out and measured by Revived Rome / UN / USA, UNGA Resolution 181, and various UN Security Resolutions such UNSC 242, aways calling for Israel, once the 1967 Six Day War ended, to return to the pre-67 borders border called “the Green Line” of 1949 armistice. This was established right after Israel acted on UNGA Resolution 181 in 1948 violently, to form the current Zionist State of Israel against Palestinian Arab resistance that rejected the plan. The move caused violent expulsion of many Palestinian Arabs from their property commemorated each year from the Palestinian side in mourning called “The Nakba / Palestinian Catastrophe.”
Finally, the world sentiment in recognition of the apparent apartheid of Israel against Palestinians was officially recognized by the Nakba/Catastrophe commemoration in the UN, May 15, 2023. Prior to this May 15, 2023, commemoration, the original UNGA Res 181 had a deadline of Oct 1, 1948, missed by the Palestinians. However, as we delineated in Babylon Is Fallen main publication, Chapter 12, on Nov 29, 2012, UNGA Res 67 / 19, passed by 2/3’s majority, gave the Palestinians, a recognized nation status in the UN, as an observer NATION. It is awaiting to this day, a UNSC Resolution to mandate that State of Palestine to Pre-1967 borders, including the Holy Mount within that new state as part of East Jerusalem as their capitol. This is where this stands as of Fall 2022 forward.
Having briefly looked at how many societies and nations over time have narrowly been formed and controlled by the sway of right against left, conservative against liberal, and then have also deteriorated to an internal level of corruption controlled by the few for their gains, we will return to the description of Babylon the Great in Revelation 17-18. We will now consider its history to the present.
From the Beginning to the End in View of Prophecy
We find that called out of this governmental mindset of Nimrod and ancient Babylon or Ur of the Chaldees in 1925 BCE, Abraham was returned to the Sovereignty of God in rule over him. He, as God verified same via appearing directly to his descendants at various places, persons, and occasions, passed that on to his descendants, Isaac, Jacob, Joseph, Moses, Joshua, Caleb, David, as well as the Prophets that arose such as Samuel, Isaiah, etc. They all verified that Sovereign link with God personally with the physical nation of Israel. When Divinely appointed leadership in Solomon began to leave that link following many strange wives and honoring their false gods, the Prophets rebuked Israel and pointed to prophecies of a future judgment and eventual blessing that would terminate in their full and intelligent subjection to God never to depart again. This is accented principally, as we have stressed, in Ezekiel 14:1-11. This example, of Israel and their ordeal and experience with God directly, would also bring that blessing to all nations as stated in Genesis 12:1-3 and Isaiah 2:1-4 among many scriptures we have given in this publication so far.
As we approach the fulfillment of those prophecies, we find that it cannot be only a righteous king that will bring about the glorious end. In the populace ruled by government, there must also be a righteous heart, so that the leadership and the people may be one for the perpetual prosperity promised in the Kingdom of God eternally. Therefore, the element that has been missing all along, in addition to the missing factor of Messiah – the righteous king, is a change of heart in the constituents that will serve that government and contribute accordingly. The Messiah and proper rule under the Sovereignty of God will have the ability, unlike government currently, to bring that change via placing Messiah’s understanding within the people. He, as firstborn from God directly having God’s mindset called the Holy Spirit, will be able to reproduce himself with brethren in his spirit or understanding as well. From recognition of his rule and government, the people will be infused with God’s mindset, the same as in Messiah, so that no man shall say “Know the Lord!” for all shall Know Him for the least to the greatest, Jeremiah 31:34, Zephaniah 3:9, and Zechariah 14:9.
It is by this method the confusion, violence, deceit, division of the people against one another will be reversed from the Nimrod / Babylon Kingdom of Satan (self-determination, freewill, and choice) to the Kingdom of God (Sovereignty, doing God’s will intelligently with understanding, knowing our will is His will operating in us).
Final Babylon and Its Demise
Read completely Isaiah 47 – 48
The full pinnacle of the term “Babylon,” and specifically “Babylon the Great,” involves the confusion of fornication between Israel and the nations that God has used to judge her. This is done due to her disobedience to the Covenant of God under the Law of Moses, all the while trying to fulfill that Covenant and acquire the blessing by alternate or Machiavellian means, believing the end in view justifies whatever path and action that is taken to so arrive at that end. Entering the visions and prophecies of the Prophet Isaiah, in Isaiah 47-48, we must unlock this mystery with the proper key in order to understand the final demise of this system.
The Key: Two Mindsets
Israel is the main character of professed knowledge that manipulates the system, yet it is depicted by God in prophecy as also being separated from it in the final analysis and condition of fulfilling his Promise and Covenant to them. This is understood by the two mindsets:
· One is the mindset of the remnant minority of Israel of honoring God’s Sovereignty with understanding as to why the nation is in judgment and far from God in their hearts and means of operation as seen in Daniel the Prophet in his agony of Daniel 9 in search for an answer to the dilemma.
· The other is the mindset of the majority which is self-destiny as seen in the Zionists and their machinations to accomplish their desires as we arrive to the end now upon us.
Some depictions of Babylon the Great, the whole spiritual system, portray Israel and the Beast of the nations upon which she rides together, as in Revelation 17-18, leaving the reader to do the division as stated in Rev 18:4 where “my people” is Israel in truth to honor Messiah. We find that Isaiah 47-48 speaks to Babylon as separate and distinct from Israel and thus lording over her in oppression. It consummates in Isaiah 48:20-21, with a call to flee Babylon in the Redemption. It is in the conversion of the majority of Israel from the mindset of self-destiny to the minority, remnant mindset of God’s Sovereignty that is accomplished by Messiah, the Redeemer, which will separate them from Babylon, destroying it, thus establishing the Kingdom of God in practical manifestation so that the nations can also be blessed.
Read completely Ezekiel 23 – 24
Unlike Isaiah 47-48 which blames the entity Babylon for oppressing the “darling” Israel, in Ezekiel, the emphasis is upon Israel in the ten tribes called in various scriptures “Ephraim,” and then addressing Judah as Jerusalem. They are singled out as the culprits directly and are depicted as harlots in fornication of the worst sort, even paying to have lovers rather than the usual concept of receiving payment to give oneself in harlotry. This is shown initiating in Egypt, which is clear when we examine it from the spiritual defilement Israel brought with her as she came out of Egypt, but Egypt did not come out of her. This ended her destined redemption, short of the mark in the Incident of the Golden Calf, from which they have never recovered, with the exception, again, of the remnant faithful as the very few of Israel retaining the virgin character of the original espousal to God in that Exodus. Ezekiel 23 goes on to show the same thing concerning Assyria and then physical Babylon, as to how she spiritually fornicated, giving herself to that kingdom and principles. She is seen as finally listening and benefitting from Ezekiel’s prophecies when she “escapes” Babylon in Ezekiel 24:24-27. Here as in Isaiah 47-48 we find this “coming out” or “escape” is by the way of a conversion and change of heart or mindset whereby she can hear and understand, thus coming out of Babylon in that manner and conversion, once she is desolated in the judgment which conditions her for that change.
Babylon and Its Final Demise
Read completely Jeremiah 50-51
In Jeremiah 50-51, it is strictly a political view depicted as the
system of Babylon in oppression over Israel, those in the privileged position
as God’s people. There is no mention of error in Israel, and Babylon is the
oppressor. This returns therefore to the general view of Isaiah 47-48 showing,
in verses 44-64 of Jeremiah 51, the call to come out of Babylon. Relating that
politically as well, this will be certainly upon the change of heart brought by
Messiah received by Israel. However, in that change there will be a consequent
and contingent change of political structure of government. This, we have made
clear in very practical terms as the acceptance of Messiah’s rule and therefore
God’s Sovereignty recognized in a government that is apart from world designs
and not based upon a Gentile charter of the United Nations as the Zionist State
– Israel in harlotry, so has.
This change is given in Jeremiah’s rendition as being brought about due to the nations coming against Babylon as the arrows of the Medes which literally captured Babylon, the ancient city. However, in the spiritual reality based upon literal events as we will find portrayed in Revelation 17 in particular, it is these nations that once formed a major part of the ancient Medo-Persian Empire and are called the “ten kings” that will bring the pressure that will cause the Zionist State to “remove the diadem, and take off the crown” as stated in Ezekiel 21:24-27 and yield to “he whose right it is” to rule according to Genesis 49:10.
Babylon and Its Final Demise
The terms “Babylon” or “Babylon the Great” are not mentioned in this scripture; yet it is one of the simplest descriptions of the entire matter on this subject. First, we have the standard, indelible, unshakeable which will prove all lies just that – falsehoods illegally representing truth, cutting them off. Additionally, and equally volatile, it will destroy any system of doctrine and consequent structure based upon that system that differs in any way from the proper standard.
This presentation of the standard of truth and righteousness is followed by that which it will destroy: Babylon the Great. Although not stated in terms verbatim, Babylon is represented here as that which is established on its own base, indicative of self-destiny without honoring God’s Sovereignty, additionally showing its roots in Nimrod and Babel in the land of Shinar as well, Gen 10:10. It is set up by two women that are like the unclean stork, an abomination, according to the Law of Moses in Leviticus 11:13-20. One woman is seen, that then becomes two which set up the standard called “wickedness,” which is clearly Israel in harlotry as depicted in Ezekiel 23 and 24. From these scriptures briefly considered above, we move to the Book of Revelation to put together the puzzle pieces and see what they reveal.
Babylon and Its Final Demise
We here add, at this time, to that understanding another key factor. That factor is the critical division of the “great city” into two parts, Jerusalem into East and West as stated in Zechariah 14:1-2. This will be accomplished upon the preparatory move, already carried out by UNGA Resolution 67/19 in one hour on November 29, 2012, as we have presented in the initiation of the 6th Trumpet / Plague according to Revelation 9:12-21 and 16:12-16. When that sounding finalizes, which is yet to occur as of the writing of this publication, God THEN identifies with Israel in Zechariah 14:3 to fight in unity with her against the nations.
Where Is the 180 Degree Turn?
Now the question certainly is:
Just what brings God to act in a positive aspect with support alongside Israel at this time?
When Israel recognizes Messiah as David’s heir in ownership of the Holy Mount as a separate entity belonging solely to him.
Part of that recognition that follows suit is that Messiah, as
that heir, is the proper government of Israel. When they come to this
conversion, the “great city” is divided into THREE parts. It is THEN the cities or strongholds of
religion, politics, and all understanding from them, fall or fail and BABYLON
IS BROUGHT INTO JUDGMENT. We must keep in mind according to Ezekiel 23-24,
Jerusalem is in abject harlotry and therefore the very center of the system of fornication
with the kings of the earth forming the Great Harlot – Babylon the Great,
pictured as in control of the Seven Headed Beast later considered in Revelation
However, it is AFTER Jerusalem is divided into three parts that THEN Great Babylon comes into judgment. Why? IT IS BECAUSE ISRAEL AND THEREFORE JERUSALEM IS, FROM THAT POINT OF CONVERSION, THE PEOPLE OF GOD AND THE CENTER OF THE KING, THE SON OF DAVID, separated unto God, having politically and spiritually come out of Great Babylon in honor of the headship under Messiah and proper biblical government, and are no longer seen by God as part of Great Babylon.
Now perhaps the reader can fathom why, it is upon this event, that the world will experience great tribulation such as never was since there was a nation. Having brought the presentation from Genesis through to this passage in Revelation 17-19, let us now enter our familiar method of quoting a few verses and then comment accordingly.
1 And there came one of the seven angels which had the seven vials, and talked with me, saying unto me, Come hither; I will shew unto thee the judgment of the great whore that sitteth upon many waters:
As we stated above, this is an expansion of the ending of the 7th Plague, Rev 16:14-21, enlarging upon the statement there: “. . . and great Babylon came in remembrance before God, to give unto her the cup of the wine of the fierceness of his wrath.” So, it follows that it is a messenger delivering the plagues that reveals and enlarges upon the subject to John.
2 With whom the kings of the earth have committed fornication, and the inhabitants of the earth have been made drunk with the wine of her fornication.
Calling it exactly what it is . . . would be a form of bestiality, in that the harlot has sexual relations with the beast as if it is her husband for the purpose of producing children. Israel in disobedience, yet trying to fulfill the Covenant she has broken, still strives to receive the land portion of that Covenant and contingent inheritance. She states she will not be a widow and barren but will have children as stated in her reprobate state as part of Babylon according to Isaiah 47:8 and repeated similarly concerning no widowhood nor sorrow in Revelation 18:7 with regard to Babylon the Great. That bastard child is the Zionist State conceived with Revived Rome / UN / USA in the conjugal act of UNGA Resolution 181. All that look to the earth between the Nile and Euphrates, to have fulfilled there the Promise of Genesis 12 to all nations, are deceived or drunk with this deception portrayed as the wine or celebration of this fornication, believing it is the positive fulfillment of prophecy. It is thus she gains the land as she desires and also produces many children among the Jews deceived to follow this deception and return to the land giving further impetus to the façade of the whole act of fornication being a true marriage. She receives many children among the Gentiles and predominantly Christianity either as Dispensationalists that give their allegiance to fulfill their concept of Daniel 9 as a negative, satanic covenant, or Preterists that support it in a humanitarian and secular way through tax dollars believing the Jews deserve their own homeland. One way or the other, they all drink of the wine of her fornication.
3 So he carried me away in the spirit into the wilderness: and I saw a woman sit upon a scarlet colored beast, full of names of blasphemy, having seven heads and ten horns.
We have fully covered the 7-headed beast with ten horns in our discussion of Revelation 13 and earlier Daniel 2 and 7. However, we say at this time in addition, concerning the “names of blasphemy,” that this aspect only becomes apparent once that beast has overstepped the divine sanctioned limits of Leviticus 26:18-39. Once the Seven Times more judgment ended in 1984 and they remained via Revived Rome / UN / USA, the 7th head in control of Jerusalem in league with the Zionists, they have crossed the line of timing. Moreover, prior to that time and to the end of this whole scenario, as we pointed out in our exposition of the 6th Trumpet / Plague where their cover is exposed, they have put forth the idea that they are the husband and deliverer of Israel producing the Zionist State with her. Therefore, they commit the ultimate blasphemy against which Paul warned the believers in II Thessalonians 2; they, Israel in unbelief with her false husband Revived Rome / UN / USA, sits in the “temple of God,” John 2:18-22,” showing or personifying to the world that they are Messiah, God . . . or . . . are sanctioned vicariously to be His representative professing falsely that they are doing His perfect, prophesied will in the time, method, and place ordained. Again, we say this is the epitome to which Paul pointed where it is destroyed in the enlightenment brought by Messiah. Later, it develops to a particular Man attempting to be Israel’s deliverer, his “deal of the century,” which is addressed in the Epilogue of BABYLON IS FALLEN.
4 And the woman was arrayed in purple and scarlet color, and decked with gold and precious stones and pearls, having a golden cup in her hand full of abominations and filthiness of her fornication:
The expression: “all that glitters is not gold” comes to mind in verse 4 above. The façade, so complete visually, that it brings admiration or wonder from John in verse 6 further below, is rather clearly, once revealed, exactly verse 5 in the greater spiritual reality.
The Mother and Her Daughters
Next to Revelation 13, this presentation of John in Revelation 17 is the second, most mangled scripture by Christendom. It is taught emphatically by many Protestant factions that this is speaking of Roman Catholicism. This was Luther’s affirmation when he basically initiated the departure from Rome in the Reformation. From that time in later years, more fundamental smaller groups accuse the larger denominations of Protestant origins, including the formal Lutheran organization as well, of being the daughters of Mother Rome. Once more we emphasize, this type of false teaching thrives due to the fact that Christians do not seriously follow Apostle Paul’s example when interpreting the New Testament, especially his letters and certainly the Apostle John’s record in the Book of Revelation:
20 To the law (the “Torah” or the first five books of the Old Testament called also the “Pentateuch” and the “Law of Moses”) and to the testimony (the testimony is the witness to the Law within the writings of the Prophets or the remainder of the Old Testament from Joshua to Malachi inclusive): if they speak not according to this word, it is because there is no light in them (they have no true enlightenment or no proper understanding).
22 Having therefore obtained help of God, I (Paul speaking before King Agrippa) continue unto this day, witnessing both to small and great, saying none other things than those which the prophets and Moses did say should come:
4 For whatsoever things were written aforetime (the only things written available, to which Paul is referring, is limited to Genesis through Malachi) were written for our learning, that we through patience and comfort of the scriptures might have hope.
26 But now is made manifest, and by the scriptures of the prophets, according to the commandment of the everlasting God, made known to all nations for the obedience of faith (What Paul brought to the nations was from the Scriptures of the Old Testament Prophets as to their access to the Promise of the Holy Spirit solely allocated for Israel until they rejected Messiah, upon which that access to the nations, the Gentiles, was opened according to Isaiah 8:15 through 9:2, as confirmed by Paul’s own letters in Romans 9-11 and Ephesians 2):
The words of Jesus, to the Pharisees and lawyers, sheds light on verse 5 of Revelation 17, with respect to verse 6 eliminating the false teaching we have delineated above.
5 And upon her forehead was a name written, Mystery, Babylon the Great, the Mother of Harlots and Abominations of the Earth.
6 And I saw the woman drunken with the blood of the saints, and with the blood of the martyrs of Jesus: and when I saw her, I wondered with great admiration.
Luke 11:39 – 54 (selected)
39 And the Lord said unto him, Now do ye Pharisees make clean the outside of the cup and the platter; but your inward part is full of ravening and wickedness. (This compares to what is in the cup of abominations in Revelation 17:5)
. . .
49 Therefore also said the wisdom of God, I will send them prophets and apostles, and some of them they shall slay and persecute:
50 That the blood of all the prophets, which was shed from the foundation of the world, may be required of this generation;
51 From the blood of Abel unto the blood of Zacharias which perished between the altar and the temple: verily I say unto you, It shall be required of this generation.
In Revelation 17:6, with respect to the identity of the party in 17:5, the blood of saints clearly includes others in addition to the martyrs of Jesus. The martyrs of Jesus are a factor only after his ministry bringing the persecution so vivid in the death of Stephen in Acts 7.
24 And in her was found the blood of prophets, and of saints, and of all that were slain upon the earth.
For all the prophets and the law prophesied until John.
It is Israel in whoredom with the kings of the earth, or in bestial fornication with the 7 Headed Beast of Out of the Sea, which empowers her as the Beast Out of the Earth, that is the full complement, male and female, comprising Babylon the Great. It was in effect as a relationship before Messiah’s Ministry in 26-30 CE to the point that this “affair” was publicly acknowledged on April 3, 30 CE, Nisan 14, Preparation Day of Pesach or Passover, when they affirmed their allegiance to Caesar and their illicit league with Old Rome as given in John 11:45-53 and 19:15, publicly defiling Israel’s sanctuary of strength, rejecting Messiah. This deceptive relationship was removed publicly in 70 CE and the destruction of Jerusalem and the Temple extinguishing for approximately 1900 years the deception and that league between Zionists and Old Rome. It returned again in public manifestation as a result of earlier workings in the British Empire, World War I and II, where soon after, there was the creation of the United Nations / Revived Rome of current years to bring into formal existence the Zionist State of Israel in 1947/48 with control over Jerusalem and the Holy Mount in 1967. It was only in this last instance since 1948 that it stood as its own separate nation, a political power or 8th “head” in the power of the greater 7th “head.” The attempt to attain that status centered out of Jerusalem and the Holy Temple Mount under Old Rome, the 6th “head,” is what brought the destruction of 70 CE.
Once more, it is clear from the Law and the Prophets that the whore, riding the beast of 7 heads down through history until its demise now approaching, is Israel in unbelief in its age-old league with the Gentile Empires that came into the Holy Land. The term “Mother of Harlots” suggesting children or daughters has been imposed by many unauthorized commentators of chiefly Protestant origins in the smaller groups of a more fundamental, teaching level. Again, this stresses Roman Catholicism as the “Mother” and the larger, ceremonial Protestant denominations as the “Daughters,” although that term is not in Revelation 17. However, if one must have a representation of that which is a product from the “Mother of Harlots” being part and parcel with Babylon the Great, it is certainly ALL of Christendom. This is because the Gentile access to God in truth and the Promise of the Holy Spirit opened via Christ’s rejection by Israel under Apostle Paul’s ministry, is now in harlotry and defiled as well, due to forsaking the truth given by Paul for another gospel and message which is death and not life. They too have succumbed to the deception as stated in
Revelation 18:23 (last phrase)
. . . for by thy sorceries were all nations deceived.
All Previous Beliefs Replaced by
The Everlasting Gospel
It is hence the Prophet Jeremiah states:
And they shall not take of thee (Babylon as portrayed in Jeremiah) a stone for a corner, nor a stone for foundations; but thou shalt be desolate forever, saith the Lord.
It will be totally removed in THE EVERLASTING GOSPEL which is based upon the proper understanding of the Messiah Ministry, both First and Last Half of Daniel’s 70th Week, the foundation and capping stone of God’s building, whereby the stones of Babylon’s explanations of the Christ Ministry is rejected for the full truth given by Michael the Great Prince. Additionally, no stone of Babylon, explaining the corner turned in the Age of Grace by its Babylonish doctrine, will be tolerated as well.
Revelation 17:7 -11
7 And the angel said unto me, Wherefore didst thou marvel? I will tell thee (reveal to John the complete make up and composite metaphor before him depicting Babylon the Great) the mystery of the woman, and of the beast that carries her, which hath the seven heads and ten horns.
8 The beast that thou sawest was (It WAS prior to Messiah’s Ministry and during it until 70 CE as the deceptive league with the whore, Israel in disobedience – Zionists trying to fulfill the Covenant in alternate means of the collective messiah role of the Sanhedrin in administration over the people, whereby it also honored Rome to the point of rejecting Messiah), and is not (This “IS NOT” was when Israel as a nation or entity in league with the Gentiles Empire was removed and not there in control of Jerusalem from 70 CE until 1948/1967); and shall ascend out of the bottomless pit (This occurred in 1947/48 UNGA Resolution 181 combined with 1967 war taking West Bank, Gaza, and specifically the Holy Mount and Jerusalem in same attitude and relationship of whoredom with Revived Rome / UN / USA), and go into perdition (It will be totally rejected, slain, and removed to never exist again according to Ezekiel 14:1-11 in the third overturning of Ezekiel 21:24-27 establishing Messiah, truth, and blessing in the proper government of God’s Sovereignty, thus cleansing the sanctuary of their strength): and they that dwell on the earth shall wonder, whose names were not written in the book of life from the foundation of the world (Those deceived due to having the mark in the forehead of self-destiny, and therefore contribute willing by their works they perceive as THEIR works, the mark in the hand, to this deception), when they behold the beast that was (prior to 70 CE), and is not (after 70 CE), and yet is (from 1948/1967 until its demise and removal now pending as of the writing of these pages).
9 And here is the mind which hath wisdom (Here is the understanding given by Messiah contingent upon the confirmation of the 70th Week of Daniel 9). The seven heads are seven mountains, on which the woman sits.
10 And there are seven kings: five are fallen (Egypt, Assyria, literal Kingdom of Babylon, Medo-Persia, and Greece as of the time this was revealed to the Apostle John), and one is (Old Roman Empire at the time of John), and the other is not yet come (Revived Rome/ UN at the end time); and when he comes, he must continue a short space (This is since 1948 / 67, and therefore present for the 3 and ½ years, called also 42 months, and “time, times and a half,” that the Gentile Empires intrude into the Time-Period of the true Temple, Messiah in his Final Ministry of 1984-1987. This short time from 1948 / 67 of the existence of Revived Rome / UN / USA in league with the harlot of the Zionist State is then in trespass when in 1984-87 it over stayed its authority to be there past the dictated judgment mandate of Leviticus 26:18-39 which ended on March 18, 1984, Purim of that year, 7 Times or 7 x 360 or 2520 years from March 18, 537 BCE, Passover for that ancient year).
11 And the beast that was (prior to 70 CE), and is not (after 70 CE), even he is the eighth (1948 / 1967 CE), and is of the seven, and goes into perdition, (sometime after fall 2022, as of the conversion of Israel under Messiah and proper government, we currently await).
Back Then and Now
Now this whoredom, according to Ezekiel 23-24 as we considered earlier, started in Egypt and went further in Assyria, and on to Babylon. There has been no break or interval or recess in this whoredom since Egypt as a state of mind or heart. Therefore, we see it rides upon the Beast, all seven heads. It becomes the 8th as a separate nation but dependent political power, never standing, self-sufficient on its own, strictly in the final appearance. It goes into perdition after the Messiah Ministry and the 6th Trumpet / Plague is completely poured out. We will now bring to bear all the scriptures concisely that consummate in, and therefore clarify, the expression in verse 7 “even he is the eighth, and is of the seven, and goes into perdition.” It is a political entity established by the whoredom of Israel in unbelief and disobedience with the 7th and last Gentile entity – Revived Rome / UN / USA in control of the ten kings or Arab countries of the Holy Land. It exists at this time as the 8th political dominance over the Holy Temple Mount and Jerusalem.
Daniel 7:7-8 and 24-27
7 After this I saw in the night visions, and behold a fourth beast (One must keep in mind here the 4th is excluding Egypt and Assyria because Daniel’s vision started with Babylon and arrives at this verse 7 via Babylon, Persia, Greece, then making Old Rome the 4th), dreadful and terrible, and strong exceedingly; and it had great iron teeth: it devoured and brake in pieces, and stamped the residue with the feet of it: and it was diverse from all the beasts that were before it; and it had ten horns (Again, remember the ten horns come in as part of Rome only when Rome, the iron, has been joined by the clay as given in the image of Daniel 2 in the feet which has ten toes matching this mention of ten horns on the head of this beast).
8 I considered the horns, and, behold, there came up among them another little horn, before whom there were three of the first horns plucked up by the roots: and, behold, in this horn were eyes like the eyes of man, and a mouth speaking great things.
. . .
24 And the ten horns out of this kingdom are ten kings that shall arise: and another shall rise after them; and he shall be diverse from the first, and he shall subdue three kings.
25 And he shall speak great words against the Most High and shall wear out the saints of the Most High and think to change times and laws: and they shall be given into his hand until a time and times and the dividing of time.
26 But the judgment shall sit, and they shall take away his dominion, to consume and to destroy it unto the end.
27 And the kingdom and dominion, and the greatness of the kingdom under the whole heaven, shall be given to the people of the saints of the Most High, whose kingdom is an everlasting kingdom, and all dominions shall serve and obey him.
23 And in the latter time of their kingdom, when the transgressors are come to the full, a king of fierce countenance, and understanding dark sentences, shall stand up.
24 And his power shall be mighty, but not by his own power: and he shall destroy wonderfully, and shall prosper, and practice, and shall destroy the mighty and the holy people.
25 And through his policy also he shall cause craft to prosper in his hand; and he shall magnify himself in his heart, and by peace shall destroy many: he shall also stand up against the Prince of princes; but he shall be broken without hand.
Revelation 13 (Selected)
1 And I stood upon the sand of the sea, and saw a beast rise up out of the sea, having seven heads and ten horns, and upon his horns ten crowns, and upon his heads the name of blasphemy.
. . .
5 And there was given unto him a mouth speaking great things and blasphemies; and power was given unto him to continue forty and two months.
. . .
11 And I beheld another beast coming up out of the earth; and he had two horns like a lamb, and he spake as a dragon.
12 And he exercises all the power of the first beast before him, and causes the earth and them which dwell therein to worship the first beast, whose deadly wound was healed.
So, we find that the political power of Revived Rome / UN / USA controlled by the mindset of, or in the power of the Dragon, is the power behind the Zionist State which by proxy is in the mindset of the Dragon as well. As a political power in Revelation 17:11, as a “king,” it is a “head” or 8th “head” created by or “of the seven” and particularly the 7th. When it is in this position, it finally goes into perdition. Therefore, it will be a political and spiritual action that destroys this 8th head. This is the emphasis of Ezekiel 21:24-27 in the THIRD OVERTURN when the 6th Trumpet / Plague finishes with the slaying of the third of men – Zionists – Israel in disobedience and whoredom and dependence upon Revived Rome / UN / USA, is completed in cutting her off from the supreme pinnacle of her claim to be the Israel of God: Jerusalem and specifically the Holy Temple Mount. This will divide the city into two parts as we have covered in other discussions from Zechariah 14:1-2. The Zionists see it as a division into two parts: 1) what they retain and 2) what is taken from their current control. This now brings us to that slaying in our next verse from Revelation 17.
12 And the ten horns which thou sawest are ten kings, which have received no kingdom as yet; but receive power as kings one hour with the beast.
KINGS! and only kings
The kingdom that the Arabs, within whom the ten tribes of Israel were lost and intermarried since the Assyrian Kingdom of 721 BCE as recorded in II Kings 17, the same Arabs that are delineated as the perceived 10 enemies of Israel in Psalms 83, collectively and colloquially called, even in their own ranks today, “Sons of Ishmael,” the same identified by Michael the Great Prince as separate and standing nations since 1967 in particular: Libya (once part of Egypt), Egypt, Arabia, Iran, Kuwait, Iraq, Turkey, Syria, Lebanon, and Jordan, touching and associated with the Nile and Euphrates, have religious interest vested in Jerusalem as the third most holiest site in the Islamic understanding. Ishmael, being Abraham’s firstborn, will only receive their true kingdom according to Genesis 12:1-3 and Genesis 16-17, in honoring Messiah in possession and rule of the Holy Mount and then from river to river of the Nile and Euphrates. This is the kingdom that they have not received as of yet, or by the time of John’s writings, and also by the time these pages of this publication were first penned. This is what will make them indeed KINGS! However, they receive authority to reign or administer decree or fix international law and action in a king-like role, or “as kings with the beast,” at a certain hour. This has occurred in preparation, as of November 29, 2012, UNGA Resolution 67/19, from 4-5 pm EST and 11-12 pm Jerusalem time. At that time, the UN recognized a Palestinian State internationally. Now this is despised, or counted of little esteem, by the Zionist State and discounted in premise by the USA, but it is indeed the hour that they have made that move stated by Revelation 17 and Revelation 16 as well as Revelation 9 as we covered the 6th Trumpet / Plague in the main publication Babylon Is Fallen previously. By this action and legislation, Palestine gained recognized statehood whereby further action can be taken as to fixing borders, and bringing the final conflict depicted from Zechariah 12 through 14.
What Slays the Third of Men?
Now within that preparatory action of the “kings of the east” in league with Revived Rome / UN / USA, we have the center of attention biblically, as to any claim within Zionism and its State to be the Israel of God returned to the land, solely entrenched in the control of Jerusalem and specifically the Holy Temple Mount. Without this, the currently touted “united capitol of Israel,” the Zionist State, with its claims, is a moot point, negated by not arriving at the goal of being recognized as BIBLE APPROVED ISRAEL, even by their own standards. These guidelines are dictated to them from Psalms 137, Isaiah 2:1-4, and other scriptures. If they do not retain this control and have their claimed “undivided city of Jerusalem” as their capitol, the entirety of what they have done and accomplished fails and falls, AND THEY WELL KNOW IT.
13 These (Arab kings or countries around Jerusalem) have one mind, and shall give their power and strength unto the beast.
14 These shall make war with the Lamb, and the Lamb shall overcome them: for he is Lord of lords, and King of kings: and they that are with him are called, and chosen, and faithful.
15 And he saith unto me, The waters which thou saw, where the whore sits, are peoples, and multitudes, and nations, and tongues.
16 And the ten horns which thou saw, upon the beast, these shall hate the whore, and shall make her desolate and naked, and shall eat her flesh, and burn her with fire.
17 For God hath put in their hearts to fulfil his will, and to agree, and give their kingdom unto the beast, until the words of God shall be fulfilled.
18 And the woman which thou saw is that great city, which reigns over the kings of the earth.
The Negative Is Ultimately a Positive
The Arabs, as Sons of Ishmael with their link to Abraham, have been greatly united under the Quran and the movement of Islam which claims to remind them of the same things in the earlier writing of ALL the Prophets. Therefore, we can understand that they look for the same outcome eventually of the Holy Land being under the Powerful King of God’s ordination according to
Quran 5:64-66 (selected)
. . . the Jews . . . strive to make mischief in the land . . . if the followers of the Book (Law and the Prophets) had believed and guarded (against evil) We would certainly have covered their evil deeds and We would certainly have made them enter gardens of bliss . . . if they had kept up the Torah . . .
Quran 10:37 (selected)
And this Quran . . . is a verification of that which was before it and a clear explanation of the book (Law and the Prophets), there is no doubt in it, from the Lord of the worlds.
We have not revealed the Quran to you that you may be unsuccessful. No, It is a reminder to him who fears: a revelation from Him Who created the earth and the high heavens.
Surely those who guard (against evil) shall be in gardens and rivers, in the seat of honor with a most Powerful King.
Therefore, by this instruction within their faith or understanding in Islam, the Arabs are unified to stand vehemently opposed to the Zionist claims and move since 1947/48 under UN Charter and designs of democracy / a democratic republic styled government. Being powerless to stop the Zionist movement until the final hour before us, they will continue in league with Revived Rome / UN / USA as the ten toes on the image of Daniel 2 and the ten horns on the head of the beast of Daniel 7, until the stone cut without hands in Daniel 2 – the Kingdom of Messiah in Daniel 7 turns their allegiance. However, until that hour, although it appears they perform a negative role as being in league with the beast themselves, they have a positive role to play while in this position which is stated in Daniel 7:24-27 as
But the judgment shall sit, and they (ten nations, ten horns, ten kings, 10 Arab state entities since 1967, acting in league and unison with Revived Rome / UN / USA) shall take away his dominion, to consume and to destroy it unto the end.
This reflects exactly what we have here in Revelation 17, with the “they” of Daniel 7:26 being the ten kings that accomplish God’s will as stated in Revelation 17:17. The mechanics of this scenario will be seen within Palestine, now being an international state with the critical part of Jerusalem in their new state via UNGA Resolution 67/19, removed from the Zionists, thus slaying the third of men. The ten nations accomplishing this will “make desolate” the aspiration and goal of Zionists, “eat the flesh” removing Jerusalem, and specifically the Holy Temple Mount, territorially from the whore along with her reputation and deceptive façade, and “burn her with fire” – the Word of God, via their written Arab inheritance as Sons of Ishmael in Genesis 16-17, giving them the right to dwell before their brethren Isaac and Jacob demanding that the Zionist entity relinquish Jerusalem from its grip and deceit to international demands of the UN.
In This Case, Two Wrongs Make a Right
Regarding the Holy Temple Mount
Both Jews and Arabs are Wrong, but Will be Justified
By the Result of God’s Finished Plan
First of all, the UN Charter Zionist State has no legal right to the goal they seek due to not having the proper government identified within the Law and Prophets Covenant that gave them their inheritance in the Holy Land as stated in Genesis 49:10, Deuteronomy 17:14-20, Hoses 3:4-5, Isaiah 9:6-7, and Jeremiah 23:2-8. Secondly, the Arabs, by their move fulfilling God’s will in one aspect of the actions in Revelation 17:17 also stand opposed to the Lamb or Messiah who owns and has final status determination and say over Jerusalem and the Holy Temple Mount with proper authority. The Holy Mount belongs to the Son of David as recorded in II Samuel 24:20-24, I Chronicles 21:21-25, and II Chronicles 3:1-2, legally bought and paid for as a matter of the best record, which stands as an indelible, title deed to his property. The Arab occupation of Messiah’s property, building structures such as the Mosque of Omar called “the Dome of the Rock” and the Al Aqsa Mosque in the same general proximity, is equally in violation of the words of the Prophets and the Quran, the latter of which specifies this area as the “qiblah” or direction of worship for the believers that are NOT identified as Muslims or part of the movement of Islam, equally designating in the Quran that Mecca in Saudi Arabia is the “qiblah” for Islam. Messiah, in bringing this fact out to the Arabs and being recognized by the converted Israel of God as the proper owner of this area, and therefore true government of the kingdom that the Arabs served in peace with Israel under Solomon in ancient times, the Arabs will be overcome by the Lamb and join in support with him recognizing him as King of Kings and Lord of Lords. Now let us bring this in line with Daniel 11.
The Willful King of Daniel 11:36-45 Comes to His End
Based upon the initiating factor of the 5th Trumpet / Plague of Revelation 9 and 16, mentioned also in Daniel 11:41 as the “escape” of the Palestinians called there “Edom, Moab, and the chief of the children of Ammon,” it is the 6th Trumpet / Plague giving them their definite, internationally recognized Palestinian State, November 29, 2012 in UNGA Resolution 67/19, which will be the factor whereby the borders of that state will be finalized. A UNSC resolution will finish the 6th Trumpet / Plague in cutting off the Zionists and all hope of retaining the State of Israel in its current format and government, slaying spiritually the third of men by severing the Holy Temple Mount from Zionist control. It will be solidified later with firm borders including East Jerusalem, the Old City, and the Holy Temple Mount within that Palestinian State as slated by the withdrawal to pre-1967 borders as stated in UNGA Resolution 67/19 slaying the Zionists, cut off from what they need as their physical link to God, even as they were slain and cut off in 70 CE, however by a legislative and diplomatic method rather than the brutal military conquest of Titus of Rome. This is stated to be “at the time appointed” in Daniel 11:29 when the king of the north returns in a manner not as the “former” which occurred in 586 BCE with Nebuchadnezzar or as the “latter” which occurred in 70 CE.
As we brought out concerning the 5th Seal, this is the answer to “how” the Jews of modern times are slain and therefore join those under the altar. It will be fully realized in the final negative act against Israel in unbelief, disobedience, and harlotry before deliverance in proper government of Messiah can be established removing the Gentile dominance once and for all. It is the THIRD Overturn of Ezekiel 21:24-27 which ends in the rule and kingdom given to “he whose right it is.” It is thus that Daniel 11 ends in verse 45 with the ‘willful king’ coming to this end with emphasis on the Holy Mount stated as “the glorious holy mountain,” and Michael standing up for the promised deliverance to the children of Daniel’s people in Daniel 12.
The Call to Come Out of Babylon the Great
In our exposition of Revelation 17 above, we have brought the history and the structure of Babylon forward and seen its demise. The call is one, threefold cord and specifically to the nation of Israel to come out of Great Babylon:
1) the First Ministry of Messiah and First Half of Daniel’s 70th Week from 26-30 CE
2) the Second Ministry of Messiah and Second Half of Daniel’s 70th Week from 1984-1987 CE
3) “the judgment did sit,” Daniel 7:24-27, that commences fall of 1987, running on for three decades plus to “the Last End of the Indignation,” Daniel 8:23-25, unto and including the slaying of the third of men by the ten nations, the Islamic 200 million, in league with, or on the head of, the beast, Rev 9:13-21.
For God speaks once, yea twice, yet man perceives it not.
It is in the third and final cord of this call that Israel will respond according to the Law and the Prophets in Hosea 1-2 which is reproduced ‘entirely’ below.
The word of the Lord that came unto Hosea, the son of Beeri, in the days of Uzziah, Jotham, Ahaz, and Hezekiah, kings of Judah, and in the days of Jeroboam the son of Joash, king of Israel.
2 The beginning of the word of the Lord by Hosea. And the Lord said to Hosea, Go, take unto thee a wife of whoredoms and children of whoredoms: for the land hath committed great whoredom, departing from the Lord.
3 So he went and took Gomer the daughter of Diblaim; which conceived, and bare him a son.
4 And the Lord said unto him, Call his name Jezreel; for yet a little while, and I will avenge the blood of Jezreel upon the house of Jehu, and will cause to cease the kingdom of the house of Israel.
5 And it shall come to pass at that day, that I will break the bow of Israel, in the valley of Jezreel.
6 And she conceived again, and bare a daughter. And God said unto him, Call her name Loruhamah: for I will no more have mercy upon the house of Israel; but I will utterly take them away.
7 But I will have mercy upon the house of Judah, and will save them by the Lord their God, and will not save them by bow, nor by sword, nor by battle, by horses, nor by horsemen.
8 Now when she had weaned Loruhamah, she conceived, and bare a son.
9 Then said God, Call his name Loammi: for ye are not my people, and I will not be your God.
10 Yet the number of the children of Israel shall be as the sand of the sea, which cannot be measured nor numbered; and it shall come to pass, that in the place where it was said unto them, Ye are not my people, there it shall be said unto them, Ye are the sons of the living God.
11 Then shall the children of Judah and the children of Israel be gathered together, and appoint themselves one head, and they shall come up out of the land: for great shall be the day of Jezreel.
1 Say ye unto your brethren, Ammi; and to your sisters, Ruhamah.
2 Plead with your mother, plead: for she is not my wife, neither am I her husband: let her therefore put away her whoredoms out of her sight, and her adulteries from between her breasts;
3 Lest I strip her naked, and set her as in the day that she was born, and make her as a wilderness, and set her like a dry land, and slay her with thirst.
4 And I will not have mercy upon her children; for they be the children of whoredoms.
5 For their mother hath played the harlot: she that conceived them hath done shamefully: for she said, I will go after my lovers, that give me my bread and my water, my wool and my flax, mine oil and my drink.
6 Therefore, behold, I will hedge up thy way with thorns, and make a wall, that she shall not find her paths.
7 And she shall follow after her lovers, but she shall not overtake them; and she shall seek them, but shall not find them: then shall she say, I will go and return to my first husband; for then was it better with me than now.
8 For she did not know that I gave her corn, and wine, and oil, and multiplied her silver and gold, which they prepared for Baal.
9 Therefore will I return, and take away my corn in the time thereof, and my wine in the season thereof, and will recover my wool and my flax given to cover her nakedness.
10 And now will I discover her lewdness in the sight of her lovers, and none shall deliver her out of mine hand.
11 I will also cause all her mirth to cease, her feast days, her new moons, and her sabbaths, and all her solemn feasts.
12 And I will destroy her vines and her fig trees, whereof she hath said, These are my rewards that my lovers have given me: and I will make them a forest, and the beasts of the field shall eat them.
13 And I will visit upon her the days of Baalim, wherein she burned incense to them, and she decked herself with her earrings and her jewels, and she went after her lovers, and forgat me, saith the Lord.
14 Therefore, behold, I will allure her, and bring her into the wilderness, and speak comfortably unto her.
15 And I will give her her vineyards from thence, and the valley of Achor for a door of hope: and she shall sing there, as in the days of her youth, and as in the day when she came up out of the land of Egypt.
16 And it shall be at that day, saith the Lord, that thou shalt call me Ishi; and shalt call me no more Baali.
17 For I will take away the names of Baalim out of her mouth, and they shall no more be remembered by their name.
18 And in that day will I make a covenant for them with the beasts of the field and with the fowls of heaven, and with the creeping things of the ground: and I will break the bow and the sword and the battle out of the earth, and will make them to lie down safely.
19 And I will betroth thee unto me forever; yea, I will betroth thee unto me in righteousness, and in judgment, and in lovingkindness, and in mercies.
20 I will even betroth thee unto me in faithfulness: and thou shalt know the Lord.
21 And it shall come to pass in that day, I will hear, saith the Lord, I will hear the heavens, and they shall hear the earth;
22 And the earth shall hear the corn, and the wine, and the oil; and they shall hear Jezreel.
23 And I will sow her unto me in the earth; and I will have mercy upon her that had not obtained mercy; and I will say to them which were not my people, Thou art my people; and they shall say, Thou art my God.
1 And after these things I saw another angel come down from heaven, having great power; and the earth was lightened with his glory.
2 And he cried mightily with a strong voice, saying, Babylon the great is fallen, is fallen, and is become the habitation of devils, and the hold of every foul spirit, and a cage of every unclean and hateful bird.
3 For all nations have drunk of the wine of the wrath of her fornication, and the kings of the earth have committed fornication with her, and the merchants of the earth are waxed rich through the abundance of her delicacies.
4 And I heard another voice from heaven, saying, Come out of her, my people, that ye be not partakers of her sins, and that ye receive not of her plagues.
5 For her sins have reached unto heaven, and God hath remembered her iniquities.
6 Reward her even as she rewarded you, and double unto her double according to her works: in the cup which she hath filled fill to her double.
7 How much she hath glorified herself, and lived deliciously, so much torment and sorrow give her: for she saith in her heart, I sit a queen, and am no widow, and shall see no sorrow.
8 Therefore shall her plagues come in one day, death, and mourning, and famine; and she shall be utterly burned with fire: for strong is the Lord God who judges her.
9 And the kings of the earth, who have committed fornication and lived deliciously with her, shall bewail her, and lament for her, when they shall see the smoke of her burning,
10 Standing afar off for the fear of her torment, saying, Alas, alas that great city Babylon, that mighty city! for in one hour is thy judgment come.
11 And the merchants of the earth shall weep and mourn over her; for no man buys their merchandise any more:
12 The merchandise of gold, and silver, and precious stones, and of pearls, and fine linen, and purple, and silk, and scarlet, and all thyine wood, and all manner vessels of ivory, and all manner vessels of most precious wood, and of brass, and iron, and marble,
13 And cinnamon, and odors, and ointments, and frankincense, and wine, and oil, and fine flour, and wheat, and beasts, and sheep, and horses, and chariots, and slaves, and souls of men.
14 And the fruits that thy soul lusted after are departed from thee, and all things which were dainty and goodly are departed from thee, and thou shalt find them no more at all.
15 The merchants of these things, which were made rich by her, shall stand afar off for the fear of her torment, weeping and wailing,
16 And saying, Alas, alas that great city, that was clothed in fine linen, and purple, and scarlet, and decked with gold, and precious stones, and pearls!
17 For in one hour so great riches is come to nought. And every shipmaster, and all the company in ships, and sailors, and as many as trade by sea, stood afar off,
18 And cried when they saw the smoke of her burning, saying, What city is like unto this great city!
19 And they cast dust on their heads, and cried, weeping and wailing, saying, Alas, alas that great city, wherein were made rich all that had ships in the sea by reason of her costliness! for in one hour is she made desolate.
20 Rejoice over her, thou heaven, and ye holy apostles and prophets; for God hath avenged you on her.
21 And a mighty angel took up a stone like a great millstone, and cast it into the sea, saying, Thus with violence shall that great city Babylon be thrown down, and shall be found no more at all.
22 And the voice of harpers, and musicians, and of pipers, and trumpeters, shall be heard no more at all in thee; and no craftsman, of whatsoever craft he be, shall be found any more in thee; and the sound of a millstone shall be heard no more at all in thee;
23 And the light of a candle shall shine no more at all in thee; and the voice of the bridegroom and of the bride shall be heard no more at all in thee: for thy merchants were the great men of the earth; for by thy sorceries were all nations deceived.
24 And in her was found the blood of prophets, and of saints, and of all that were slain upon the earth.
What Is the Difference Between
Slaying of the Third of Men in One Hour
Destruction of Babylon the Great in One Hour?
The one-hour vote on November 29, 2012 at
the inception of the 6th Trumpet / Plague, UNGA Res 67 / 19 prepares
the third of men for the slaying which will consummate in Jerusalem and the
Holy Temple Mount being taken from Israel within its position in Babylon the
Great as the whore riding upon the Beast, one supporting the other in the age-
old relationship that has served both parties. Exactly as occurred in 70 CE,
with the exception of the method used as we have made clear throughout this
publication in that it is diplomatic and not militarily by force, Revived Rome
/ UN / USA will turn upon Israel and their successful relationship to dash
Israel’s hopes for the third time. This completed final cycle will be the “THIRD
OVERTURN.” When we include the destruction of Jerusalem in 586 BCE under
Nebuchadnezzar and the destruction under Titus of Rome of 70 CE, this makes a
count of THREE.
In the second overturn of 70 CE, it was predicated upon the full aspirations of the Zionist coming finally in conflict with Rome to have its own independent nation politically, centered out of Jerusalem, separate from Rome. Prior to that move, Rome had no problem and even enjoyed the relationship which was commercially and politically beneficial to the Roman Empire at large as we pointed out in our presentation from predominantly Daniel 11 earlier in the publication Babylon Is Fallen. However, when the governmental element within Jerusalem of the Jews in league and rule with Rome decided it was time to establish the kingdom of God at that time within their collective messiah concept and secede from Rome, it was crushed. We also showed how much of the impetus to secede was also fomented by the movement that started in Acts 15 and anathematized by Paul in Hebrews and II Thessalonians 2 particularly that falsely said the resurrection to enlightenment was completed and past, thus claiming the Day of Christ was there. This basically Christian side of the equation, selling out to be linked back to the Temple and Judaism in general, was judged and obliterated in the conflagration of 66-72 CE.
Overturn Are NOT the Same
As the First and Second,
Due to One Major Difference.
Here at the end time, once Israel’s hopes are dashed for the third
time losing their link with God as they perceive same in the legislated loss of
Jerusalem, they will have only one recourse – Messiah and his proper government
honoring God’s Sovereignty, from which to defend their unified capitol. First
of all, at this era, Revived Rome / UN / USA controls by violence and deceit
and not openly confiscating land and nations by military occupation; it is
hence the Zionist State is indeed given by Revived Rome / UN / USA a separate
nation unlike at the time of the ancient Roman Empire. However, as with 70 CE,
Zionists have made a move that is not sanctioned by Revived Rome / UN / USA and
stands in direct opposition to the charter that brought the Zionist State about
November 29, 1947, in UNGA Resolution 181 which was acted upon by the Zionists
in the declaration of their state on May 14, 1948. Here Revived Rome / UN / USA
recognized that move and agreed so there was no problem between Revived Rome /
UN / USA and the Zionists at that point.
As time progressed, we came to the point of the 1967 Six-Day-War where the Zionist entity moved into other areas not granted to them by that UN charter, specifically the West Bank Territories, Gaza Strip, and the real crux of the matter as it was in 70 CE as well – East Jerusalem, the Old City, and Holy Temple Mount. This move has never been sanctioned by the world in any manner, only tolerated with a view to eventually having these areas form a Palestinian State. Short of that, every UN declaration since that Six-Day-War in 1967 has called upon the Zionists to go back to pre-1967 border status.
The contest again between Rome, now the Revived Rome / UN /USA,
and Israel under its Zionist granted government operating by charter from the
UN to be a nation, is the same as before. In 1967, Zionists made their step
over the line against the designation of the Beast, Revived Rome / UN / USA in
that Six Day War, and have refused to return to Pre-67 borders and have repopulated
and resettled the West Bank, and continue to do to this day. However, they will
be crushed by political Rome once again. This will occur when the ten nations
finish their job in league with the Beast Revived Rome / UN / USA, based upon
that one-hour vote in the General Assembly of the UN on November 29, 2012, UNGA
Resolution 67/19, that gave the Palestinian State recognized status
internationally as a state and “observer nation.”
What has not been decided and weighs in the balance is the final disposition of borders in a UNSC Resolution mandate based upon UNGA Res 67 / 19 cutting off the third of men – slaying spiritually Israel in the status as the whore riding upon the beast – the Zionist State politically. This will remove them from their lifeline as they understand it: Jerusalem, the Old City, and the Holy Temple Mount. This is all accomplished based upon the hour when UNGA Resolution 181, which brought about a clear recognition of the Zionist State, was carried to the next level in UNGA Resolution 67/19 to recognize a Palestinian State, the necessary factor to proceed unto the slaying of the third of men.
The Hour Babylon Is Destroyed
As depicted in Revelation 18, although it is not clearly stated there, one must understand it will be destroyed in the hour when God’s people, Israel, the “children of Daniel’s people,” as stated in Daniel 12:1, go through the process described in Hosea 1-2, Zec 13:8-9, and COME OUT OF BABYLON honoring proper government in anointing Messiah, receiving the Most Holy - God, to be in rule over them. This is the end in view finishing the list of things that are contingent upon the confirmation of Daniel’s 70th Week of
Seventy weeks are determined upon thy people and upon thy holy city, to finish the transgression, and to make an end of sins, and to make reconciliation for iniquity, and to bring in everlasting righteousness, and to seal up the vision and prophecy, and to anoint the most Holy.
Secularly the Achilles Heel for Revived Rome / UN / USA is the fact that the people of any democracy have the right to change their form of government upon a referendum to do so within its citizens. This will be done once Israel in disobedience is slain by the system upon which it has depended, with Jerusalem lost and removed from Zionist designs, the false shepherd unable to deliver. It is then the Last End of the Indignation finishing the threefold call for Israel to come out of spiritual Babylon will have been answered with the anointing of the Most Holy – God via receiving he whom God has sent – Messiah. This will bring down the entire world system of Babylon the Great, its False Prophet aspect in religion, its Beast aspect in the political arena, and finally the Dragon aspect in the change of mindset in the individuals of mankind that compose the system, thus consuming it utterly.
The two hours therefore differ in that in the first one the necessary conditioning and separation in the death of Israel in their mindset of self-destiny is accomplished by its finish, weaning her from dependence on Babylon and the relationship any further. Yet, the question is certainly: What remains as their alternative and deliverance as the result of that hour finishing its cycle in her death? The answer: Messiah, his ownership of the Holy Temple Mount, his consequent rule as their King David promised by all the Prophets, the cleansing of the sanctuary of their strength publicly by accepting him that was rejected, and the blessings declared by all the Prophets and certainly the Law as stated in Leviticus 26:42-44, reiterated by Solomon in II Chronicles 7:14.
Babylon Exposed and Then the Call to Come Out
Beauty, or the Lack Thereof, Is in the Eyes of the Beholder
Revelation 18:1-3 and then 4 – 24
If the reader will recall we showed in the 6th Plague
in particular how the façade to be Israel’s deliverer, the deception, is cast
out of the mouth of the triumvirate of deceit, the Dragon, the Beast, and the
False Prophet, it is then the instruction comes to watch one’s garments lest
they walk naked or they too are exposed as without truth. It is then the 7th
Plague comes with the city divided into three parts. In the 6th
Trumpet aspect, we see the slaying of the third of men as the end of the
process of that sounding and then it says the third woe, the 7th
Trumpet “comes quickly” rendering full reward and punishment, a positive to the
righteous but a plague of great hail in the 7th Plague aspect to the
Well, so it is here in Revelation 18 also, as we observe the division above stated between verse 3 and 4. The exposure comes in verses 1-3 revealing Babylon, as fallen and evil, and no longer able to deceive that it is Israel’s husband to attain the goal and Promise of God. This is via the action of the ten nations in league with Babylon just prior to Israel’s conversion devastating her hopes by taking Jerusalem in concert with Revived Rome / UN / USA as the finish of the 6th Trumpet / Plague. It is THEN that Babylon’s beauty in the eyes of ISRAEL is removed and fallen to those seeking to accomplish their goal in league with Revived Rome / UN / USA which looked so good before. Having Jerusalem divided into two parts or in a manner that removes it from Zionist control, as portrayed in Zechariah 14:1-2 by the ten nations and Revived Rome / UN / USA designs, will rally them in repentance to Messiah and his ownership of the Holy Temple Mount with all that comes with it. This is the Call to Come Out HEARD and RECEIVED at this time.
What follows is the aftermath of Israel leaving Babylon severing the relationship due to not being able to reach Israel’s desired goal. Once this relationship is severed from Israel’s side in particular, the whole system, religious, political, financial, and commercial collapses as the result of that allegiance then given by Israel to Messiah and the proper government installed over Jerusalem and consequently the Holy Land.
Great Tribulation, upon all but Israel then transpires at this point, with Israel having already experienced her tribulation driving her to Messiah for deliverance. How this will develop and be experienced in many practical ways and facets is hard to determine. So, we will not speculate, but remind the reader that the Zionists have already, as of October 19, 1987, wrapped up the world’s gold, silver, and all precious things of finance and commerce, with the Arab oil being confiscated by that Black Monday Stock Market Crash. They, realizing their goal through Messiah properly will THEN join him in spiritual marriage as we will now address, which God views as a betrothal as if she is a pure virgin, covering all her harlotry.
The Everlasting Good News Covers All in Perfection
NOW REMEMBER, the truth behind all that has transpired up to this point is only God operating in many masks and roles by His preordained script of which prophecy is the revealed glimpses, within time and space, of that prewritten program. So once again, no one did anything. It is, was, and will always be God. It is at this conversion that Israel is brought into the bridal chamber and communes with God through Messiah to learn this fact where this revelation, accepting it and feeding upon all He has done to bring this glorious end, is pictured in Revelation 19 as the marriage supper filling those that soar in the heaven or have proper understanding and are able to benefit, digest, and rejoice in all that has gone before. It is another metaphor for what is called elsewhere “The Redemption,” “the New Birth,” and “The Resurrection.”
The Remedy Destroying Babylon and Delivering Israel
From Where the Nations Are Also Ruled in Righteousness
What About the Rest of Mankind that Are Not Israel
1 And after these things I heard a great voice of much people in heaven, saying, Alleluia; Salvation, and glory, and honour, and power, unto the Lord our God:
2 For true and righteous are his judgments: for he hath judged the great whore, which did corrupt the earth with her fornication, and hath avenged the blood of his servants at her hand.
3 And again they said, Alleluia And her smoke rose up for ever and ever.
4 And the four and twenty elders and the four beasts fell down and worshipped God that sat on the throne, saying, Amen; Alleluia.
5 And a voice came out of the throne, saying, Praise our God, all ye his servants, and ye that fear him, both small and great.
6 And I heard as it were the voice of a great multitude, and as the voice of many waters, and as the voice of mighty thunderings, saying, Alleluia: for the Lord God omnipotent reigns.
7 Let us be glad and rejoice, and give honor to him: for the marriage of the Lamb is come, and his wife hath made herself ready.
8 And to her was granted that she should be arrayed in fine linen, clean and white: for the fine linen is the righteousness of saints.
9 And he saith unto me, Write, Blessed are they which are called unto the marriage supper of the Lamb. And he saith unto me, These are the true sayings of God.
10 And I fell at his feet to worship him. And he said unto me, See thou do it not: I am thy fellow servant, and of thy brethren that have the testimony of Jesus: worship God: for the testimony of Jesus is the spirit of prophecy.
11 And I saw heaven opened, and behold a white horse; and he that sat upon him was called Faithful and True, and in righteousness he doth judge and make war.
12 His eyes were as a flame of fire, and on his head were many crowns; and he had a name written, that no man knew, but he himself.
13 And he was clothed with a vesture dipped in blood: and his name is called The Word of God.
14 And the armies which were in heaven followed him upon white horses, clothed in fine linen, white and clean.
15 And out of his mouth goes a sharp sword, that with it he should smite the nations: and he shall rule them with a rod of iron: and he treads the winepress of the fierceness and wrath of Almighty God.
16 And he hath on his vesture and on his thigh a name written, King of Kings, And Lord of Lords.
17 And I saw an angel standing in the sun; and he cried with a loud voice, saying to all the fowls that fly in the midst of heaven, Come and gather yourselves together unto the supper of the great God;
18 That ye may eat the flesh of kings, and the flesh of captains, and the flesh of mighty men, and the flesh of horses, and of them that sit on them, and the flesh of all men, both free and bond, both small and great.
19 And I saw the beast, and the kings of the earth, and their armies, gathered together to make war against him that sat on the horse, and against his army.
20 And the beast was taken, and with him the false prophet that wrought miracles before him, with which he deceived them that had received the mark of the beast, and them that worshipped his image. These both were cast alive into a lake of fire burning with brimstone.
21 And the remnant were slain with the sword of him that sat upon the horse, which sword proceeded out of his mouth: and all the fowls were filled with their flesh.
As Israel has been the proverbial Guinea Pig, or experimental white mouse, in this experiment that first goes through the nurturing for the test, the judgment of the test, and then comes forth proving the remedy is sound and safe, they will be the first to benefit even as they have had to be the test group in God’s great test tube or proving ground. It is hence the nations will benefit once Babylon is destroyed as they come up out of great tribulation to Jerusalem according to Isaiah 2:1-4, washed white from false doctrine that was previously received by listening to the False Prophet, and his henchmen called “clergy,” the so-called scholars which then must step down to join the laity and unlearn and then, properly learn. The political arena will change from a bestial, every man for himself, spirit generated in the beast that understands nothing as he should of Psalms 49:20. It will become an atmosphere generated by Sons of God and their respect to treat others as we would want also to be treated. Social government will be the agenda, however with the third element finally being in place that the False Prophet and the Beast knew nothing of, which is replacement of the Dragon mindset of self-destiny in exchange for the Sovereignty of God’s meticulous control perceived in oneself and others. This is the formula once again for Jew first and then also the Greek or Gentile, whereby the world peace, we all have awaited, will ensue.
The Slaying in Fulfillment
Then the Blessing in Fulfillment
Again, the symbology of Revelation 19 shows the negative of being
slain by the Word in fulfillment, the clear understanding within the proper
interpretation of the Word heard from Messiah’s mouth, the real Sword of the
Word of God, proving one short or void of truth. It is then one can rise in
life leaving those dead understandings behind. This metaphor in Revelation 19
is answered in Revelation 14 where the Messiah, with those that received his
First Ministry, comes forth with the message of THE EVERLASTING GOSPEL accompanied with BABYLON IS FALLEN. It is the negative that shows one in error,
where all error is based upon the prime, false teaching of Babylon that we are
our own entity of self-determination, freewill, and choice. It is thus we are erroneously
thought to be free moral agents that decide our own destiny within the greater
parameters of God who operates only those parameters leaving us to our own
devices within them.
This false and shortsighted understanding initiated with Adam becomes centered in a test group from Abraham and principally Jacob from then forward. Within that test group there is a deviation from that mindset in the remnant that honors God’s Sovereignty and receives the Prophets and adheres to the Law within its mandates and sacrificial ordinances. They respect Messiah when he comes, but the majority does not, so much so that there is no remnant of Israel that so respects Messiah with enough intelligence to respond in his second coming to solely Israel. Therefore, the final judgment ensues, the Last End of the Indignation, where via failure to accomplish its goal, Israel can plainly see, finally, that Babylon, and its system of Zionist attempts within it, will not deliver them, and it is evil and fallen. They turn to God through Messiah and honor THE EVERLASTING GOSPEL that God is Sovereign and has orchestrated all that has been done. It is at that point they will receive that which is the only deliverance that will justify them, cleanse their harlotry, and bring the blessing they seek. Finally, their destiny to be the beacon of light and hope to the nations is realized as the nations come to Jerusalem to receive all Israel has first received that, in turn, blesses them as well.
Revelation 19: Judgment of the Nations
Emphasis of the judgment of the nations is what is seen in Revelation 19, and is paralleled in the Prophets by Ezekiel 38-39 which ends also in the metaphor of fowls eating flesh. Again, this is a metaphor for those that come from the seat of understanding in heaven (fowls of heaven) feeding upon the final fulfillment of all that they understood was to occur from the Law and the Prophets, partially fulfilled in Christ and the Apostles but at last completed in the end time. One will find in ALL of the Prophets and their visions, even as the Book of Revelation repeats this scenario, that this progression with Israel, from nurturing and espousal to God then moving to judgment and finally to deliverance with consequent judgment and deliverance to the nations, is also repeated over and over again as well. It is thus we say that within the final message, THE EVERLASTING GOSPEL, penned by the hand directly of Michael the Great Prince, accompanied by his understanding of the Law, the Prophets, and the New Testament, then ministered to, and written by the author of these pages and entitled BABYLON IS FALLEN, is the ‘message,’ both positive and negative, accompanying the events of the 7th Trumpet / Plague to bring all men, Jew first, to the new heaven and new earth wherein dwells righteousness. It is within this revelation of full truth no one has perished, and no one will ever perish, because they have all been, no matter how warm and appealing or dastardly and repugnant, God manifested in the flesh fulfilling His prewritten and finished script.
