The Destruction of Babylon

Can you discern the hand of the Lord in current events?  America is Babylon.  The Lord told us that Babylon will be destroyed so utterly that it will be desolate forever.

Jer 51:14The Lord Almighty has sworn by himself:
I will surely fill you with troops, as with a swarm of locusts,
and they will shout in triumph over you.

25“I am against you, you destroying mountain,
you who destroy the whole earth,”declares the Lord.
“I will stretch out my hand against you,
roll you off the cliffs,
and make you a burned-out mountain.
26No rock will be taken from you for a cornerstone,
nor any stone for a foundation,
for you will be desolate forever,”

Look at what is happening, Babylon is provoking the entire world.  Russia and China in particular are not happy with the decisions the King of Babylon makes for Syria.  Even the parliament of Britain voted down a strike against Syria.  If Obama goes ahead with this strike, what will be the outcome?  We do not have to guess, what did the Lord say would happen?  Read Jeremiah 51 and you see what He said.  

Babylon is being isolated in the world.  Every day her enemies grow stronger while she grows weaker.  Look at the economy, look at the divided society, look at the military cuts, look at the immorality of the nation, the acceptance and even promotion of abomination (homosexuality).  Obama met with the LGBT leaders in Russia when he went to the G20, that is America's/Babylon's king promoting Babylon's demise.  Don't point fingers at brother D here for reporting this, what did the Lord do to Sodom and Gomorrah?  Does this nation really believe it can get away with gross blatant willful thumbing of the nose at the Lord?  Does this nation really believe it will be the exception to the consequences of sin?

No, the Lord has spoken and Babylon will be judged HARSHLY.  Read Jeremiah 50-51 for more details.  We are watching with our own eyes the setup for the downfall.  When the Russians of the Chinese flip the switch on some major operation against the U.S. (major cyber attack?  Nuke?) then maybe the people will begin to understand the consequences of their indifference.

What is happening in Syria is American isolation.  The entire world is turning against her.  The King of Babylon digs America's grave and people could care less as they watch it happen.  What is happening before our eyes has nothing whatsoever to do with chemical weapons and everything to do with America's grievous sins.  Where are the 'pastors' and preachers who lead the people to their knees and intercede with the Lord on behalf of the people?  Where is the sackcloth and ashes, the tears and emotional distress before the Lord over the heinous sins of the people?  Where are these religious people who claim to be leaders but keep wool over the eyes of the people.

Let me tell you what current events dictate to the religious leaders.  Repent or perish.  Period.  What is coming is a storm so mindshattering, so severe, so brutal, so unforgiving that it will take your breath away.  The Lord is not amused, He is not 'tolerant', and He is not playing along with the rebellion and wickedness (esp in America).  He has long been silent to men do not fear Him.

Isaiah 42:13The Lord will march out like a champion,
like a warrior he will stir up his zeal;
with a shout he will raise the battle cry
and will triumph over his enemies.
14“For a long time I have kept silent,
I have been quiet and held myself back.
But now, like a woman in childbirth,
I cry out, I gasp and pant.
15I will lay waste the mountains and hills
and dry up all their vegetation;
I will turn rivers into islands
and dry up the pools.

... Is it not because I have long been silent that you do not fear me? 

Who am I to say such things?  A child of God and a member of the royal household, as are all believers who are "in Christ."  Take my word for nothing, what does the Lord say?  What has already been written?  The sins on the earth are so flagrant and so brazen because people do not believe the Lord will do what He said He would do.  They no longer fear the Lord.  They say "The Lord has not given me a spirit of fear" but they forget the fear of the Lord that a child must have and is written of again and again in the Word.  Our Father is loving and kind but also a righteous judge.  He is the King of Eternity and He will do what He said He would do.  Can't you see it?

Regardless of what does or does not happen in Syria, America/Babylon is being setup for destruction.  The hooks are already in her mouth being led to the slaughter and the people are clueless.

This brother says these things in grief and trembling and fear of the Lord.  The Lord has made it clear to me for decades that He is not playing and destruction is right around the corner.  He does not reckon time the way we do, but we are now seeing the fruit of the promises ripen on the tree.  He who has ears let him hear.
