Past and Future Babylon

In the past, it was Babylon that the Lord used to punish Israel, in the future it will again be Babylon that is used to punish Israel.  That is the beauty and the wisdom of the Lord our God that He has written His Word to us in a way that it covers both past and present Babylon.  Spell it out a little clearer brother.  Okay, when we read Jeremiah 50 and 51, the Lord has Jeremiah prophesy about both Babylons (mostly future Babylon).

That is why we must rightly divide the Word of truth

2 Tim 2:15 Study to shew thyself approved unto God, a workman that needeth not to be ashamed, rightly dividing the word of truth.

The Lord has written His Word to us with eternal wisdom, it is multi-layered.  Why did He do that?  So that people cannot do a cursory reading and say "yep, nothing else to see here!"  After a lifetime of reading and study we will not have scratched the surface of the depth of riches hidden away in the eternal Word.

The Lord uses dual reference when He speaks of Babylon in Jer 50-51.  Can you give another example of this?  Sure, how about Jesus and the temple:

13When it was almost time for the Jewish Passover, Jesus went up to Jerusalem. 14In the temple courts he found people selling cattle, sheep and doves, and others sitting at tables exchanging money. 15So he made a whip out of cords, and drove all from the temple courts, both sheep and cattle; he scattered the coins of the money changers and overturned their tables. 16To those who sold doves he said, “Get these out of here! Stop turning my Father’s house into a market!” 17His disciples remembered that it is written: “Zeal for your house will consume me.”c
18The Jews then responded to him, “What sign can you show us to prove your authority to do all this?”
19Jesus answered them, “Destroy this temple, and I will raise it again in three days.”
20They replied, “It has taken forty-six years to build this temple, and you are going to raise it in three days?” 21But the temple he had spoken of was his body. 22After he was raised from the dead, his disciples recalled what he had said. Then they believed the scripture and the words that Jesus had spoken.

So this is proof positive that our God does indeed use dual references to sidetrack the casual reader and instruct the true believer at the same time.

Now back to Babylon, specifically end time Babylon.  We are watching the world around us be transformed into Babylon.  Barack Hussein is importing 1,000,000 muslims into America to facilitate its integration into Babylon and Europe has millions more being thrown at it to complete its transformation into Babylon.  Europe and America are being marked for destruction.  This writer believed it was just America that was Babylon but that view was too shortsighted.  Apparently, Europe will share the Babylonian title.  Watch the spread of Islam and you will know what is being marked for destruction.

How do we know Islam and Babylon are marked for destruction?

Jer 50“The people of Israel are oppressed,
and the people of Judah as well.
All their captors hold them fast,
refusing to let them go.
34Yet their Redeemer is strong;
the Lord Almighty is his name.
He will vigorously defend their cause
so that he may bring rest to their land,
but unrest to those who live in Babylon.
35“A sword against the Babylonians!”
declares the Lord
“against those who live in Babylon
and against her officials and wise men!
36A sword against her false prophets!
They will become fools.
A sword against her warriors!
They will be filled with terror.
37A sword against her horses and chariots
and all the foreigners in her ranks!
They will become weaklings.
A sword against her treasures!
They will be plundered.
38A drought ond her waters!
They will dry up.
For it is a land of idols,
idols that will go mad with terror.

The Lord does not leave much to the imagination here ^^.  Why are Islam and Babylon marked for destruction?  Because the Lord always destroys the tool He uses to punish His own people.  Isaiah 14 is an entire chapter dedicated to the destruction of those who destroyed Israel:  Babylon, Assyria and Philistia.

It was written on this blog recently that upcoming elections will determine how much time we have.  If Britain leaves the EU we mave have more time, if Trump is elected president we may have more time.  Those are some pretty big ifs though.  What are the probabilities, what is most likely?  The vote is rigged in both Britain and the United States and what we end up with is more of the same, status quo corruption, fraud, deceit and destruction in both Britain and America.  Hillary is Barack Obama in a woman's body but worse.  She is everything that is wrong with Barak Hussein but she is also 100X the criminal thief liar he is.

Hillary also wants to continue the mass immigration of Muslims into the United States.  So what?  So we will see what the Lord's timeline looks like next week during the Brexit vote and the end of the year when the US presidential election takes place.  Are we going to fast track into the time of Jacob's trouble or will some time be inserted into the timeline?

America is critical.  America plays a critical role in end time events because as long as America is strong, Israel will be strong.  Even with a Muslim as United States president for 8 years we have continued to protect Israel and provide them Billions of dollars worth of free military aid.  As long as America is strong Israel will be strong.  In order for Israel to be setup for the time of Jacob's trouble, America either has to be neutralized or seriously degraded to the point where it cannot come to Israel's aid when it is surrounded by armies.  This is why what is happening in Britain and America this year is so important.  We are about to see Babylon either fast tracked or hindered.  The Lord's will be done.

grace and peace
