Fallen fallen is Babylon the great
This event is about to come upon us. So I thought I would dig up some scriptures and see what we can glean to give us a better idea of how this is going to unfold. I wonder which if any of the videos on You Tube are accurate. This event is mentioned twice in Revelations 18-2 and 14-8. Fallen fallen is Babylon and close to it is mentioned in Isaiah 21. That's the same passage get the name of my web site verse 21-11The oracle concerning Dumah. One is calling to me from Seir,
“Watchman, what time of the night? A look at Babylonian history is very interesting.
However, before we look at these scriptures let us look at who Babylon is and what it is.
What is Babylon the great?
The and Rev 18 is a good place to start
“Fallen, fallen is Babylon the great!
She has become a dwelling place for demons,
a haunt for every unclean spirit,
a haunt for every unclean bird,
a haunt for every unclean and detestable beast.
For all nations have drunk
the wine of the passion of her sexual immorality,
and the kings of the earth have committed immorality with her,
and the merchants of the earth have grown rich from the power of her luxurious living.”
These verses provides relevant information. First and for most is sexual immorality which is backed up with descriptions of it being the great whore, the harlot and mother of prostitutes. Secondly it is a city of merchants and great wealth (bankers)created by the immoral lifestyle. One of it's names in Rev 17 is the great city. It does not say it will be a military based wickedness.
In Revelations 17 describes there being seven heads with Rome being the sixth. The usual list of names of the seven includes Assyria, Nineva and Egypt, Phebes etc. which were before Babylon. These are included as they were the most dominant nations of their time. It does not make sense to me and it is because they miss the point of what Babylon is. Nineveh was the largest city up until that time and its population was 120,000 but was not a city of merchants but a military empire. Babylon's population was about 250,000 and was a new kind of city that the world had not seen before. One of its early names was The City of Merchants. This merchant trade gave rise to banking both normal and Merchant Banking. The measure of value was the shekel which was weighed. The Babylonians were the first to put marking on shekels to inform the user of a standard weigh. We see the result of this system in our modern fiat currencies. Also in Zechariah 5 there is a picture of a woman in a sealed basket. The says "This is wickedness" This basket was taken to the land of Shinar. Shinar is another name for Babylonia of which the capital is Babylon. The woman in the basket was wickedness. This is why the name Babylon is the description of this entity. Military dominance often goes with financial dominance but is not an essential part of being Babylon. So to be a head of Babylon you must be the most immoral nation and be financial dominant. These nations that become dominant are described as heads with Rome being the sixth head. Rome morphed into the Holy Roman Empire which ended with the Third Reich. Reich being a German word for the Holy Roman Empire. A change happen with the second world war. The Breton Woods meeting started the change but the actual change from Europe being Babylon to the USA was signed into being on a single day when on the 27th of December 1945 the IMF was signed into being but at the same time the US dollar was made the reserve world currency. The moral collapse had happened with the roaring twenties through to the prospect of war. People did things that they would not have done normally but once the line was crossed there was no turning back. That makes the USA the same age as King Saul when he died. The USA is Babylon or more correctly the seventh head of the Beast that Mystery Babylon(the woman in the basket,wickedness) rides on. Zechariah 5 gives us another look at the characteristics on Babylon. The flying scroll is a curse that goes out against the thief and against a false witness. That is dishonest gain and no justice. With the way banks and multinationals operate these days this is rampant.
Revelations 14 has to do with the 144000 and the change of what is being preached. Up until the fall they preach “Fear God and give him glory, because the hour of his judgement has come, and worship him” We have seen that start in the 1970'S and get more pronounced to being a common ministry today. In Rev 18.2 the cause of the fall is described next. “Fallen, fallen is Babylon the great, she who made all nations drink the wine of the passions of her sexual immorality.” This reinforces the fact that the fall is to do with immorality and not military strength.
Most of Revelations are events over short timeliness. Following that precedent lets us look at Rev 18 as a time line. Firstly, a powerful Angel lightened the whole earth with its glory. We have have seen that over the last couple of years in the USA with the rise of Donald Trump. All kinds of revelations have come out about corruption in the government of the USA. Some know what has been going on but all will know soon. There is going to be an attack on sexual wickedness, the double standard of justice which is mind boggling in the USA (Hillary and Bill Clinton's endless scandals) and thief. What the banks have been doing.
ack Obama hanging from a rope. The theft of vast sums of money being exposed. There will be major scandals in the FBI, DOJ and the CIA. The corruption is so wide spread and profound there are far to many to list. The main ones to look for are sexual wickedness, theft and justice.
Fallen Fallen is Babylon the Great.
We will see the exposure of high profile people involved in Paedophilia. There are going to be some high profile preachers going to jail for a long time. We are going to see ex Presidents going to jail and there may even be hangings. Do not be surprised to see Barrack Obama hanging from a rope. The theft of vast sums of money being exposed. There will be major scandals in the FBI, DOJ and the CIA. The corruption is so wide spread and profound there are far to many to list. The main ones to look for are sexual wickedness, theft and injustice. The USA is stating to see a challenge to injustice.
There are many stories about Fallen Babylon being destroyed in one hour by fire. This is in Rev 18 and it is true that this will happen. However if you are reading Rev 18 as a time line then there are two things that happen in between. Firstly the call for Gods people to come out of the cities. As mentioned before that is every city with over 250,000 people in it. Secondly, the President saying that she has suffered no harm and the USA is as great as ever. On that statement pretty much instantly KaPow. A lot has to happen in Europe before that takes place so it would be a minimum of seven years but more likely fourteen years .
Lets get technical.
The statement that Babylon is the USA is not correct. The image we are given is made up of three parts. The woman riding the beast, the beast itself and the heads of the beast and the ten horns.
The woman which we have covered who can not be killed so when we say Fallen Fallen we just mean she will move from the seventh head to an eighth. Which in this case is back to Europe. The beast is a spiritual being and is said to arise out of the bottomless pit. The spiritual being that rises out of the bottomless pit is Abaddon. You can read more about Abaddon in the blogg "Abaddon the only being more wicked than Satan" Lastly are the nations and their cities and they are described as heads. There are ten horns and horns are people. You can easily see this in Daniel 8 when he talks about the goat and the ram as Greece and the Medes and Perians. I say that Revelations is a time line, first is fallen fallen then people have to leave the cities and then the physical attack. The ten horns hate the head and that is the ten horns of Europe and will oversee the destruction of the USA and the fully blown eighth head. If you read Europe in Revelations you can start to see a real time line.
