Bad News and Good News

 The bad news is that evidence is mounting we are surrounded by demonic politicians on all sides, and unfortunately America is meeting the description of end time Babylon to the letter.  You really need to read Jeremiah 50 and 51 for yourself.  They say if the shoe fits, wear it and it appears the end time Babylon shoe fits America down to the micrometer.

Some like to dismiss the Babylonian shoe on Americas feet by saying "its talking about ancient Babylon."  What they fail to understand, overlook or just ignore the fact that the Lord God can and does employ multilayered imagery that can point to both old and new at the same time.  There is also normalcy bias and just willful denial because people dont want to believe what they dont want to believe.

Lets start with some recent events compared to the Word of God:

Jer 51:

The LORD has stirred up the spirit of the kings of the Medes, because his purpose concerning Babylon is to destroy it, for that is the vengeance of the LORD, the vengeance for his temple.

12“Set up a standard against the walls of Babylon;
make the watch strong;
set up watchmen;
prepare the ambushes;
for the LORD has both planned and done
what he spoke concerning the inhabitants of Babylon.
13O you who dwell by many waters,
rich in treasures,
your end has come;
the thread of your life is cut.
14The LORD of hosts has sworn by himself:
Surely I will fill you with men, as many as locusts,
and they shall raise the shout of victory over you.

How about that invasion that has been taking place for the past 3 years, America being invaded by millions of military aged men.

Thats a direct hit, and the bad news is the globalists are doing it but at whose direction?  It was written thousands of years ago in the book of Jeremiah that the Lord would do it...and now we are seeing it with our own eyes.

How about this one:

Jer 51

25“Behold, I am against you, O destroying mountain,
declares the LORD,
which destroys the whole earth;
I will stretch out my hand against you,
and roll you down from the crags,
and make you a burnt mountain.
26No stone shall be taken from you for a corner
and no stone for a foundation,
but you shall be a perpetual waste,
declares the LORD.

27“Set up a standard on the earth;
blow the trumpet among the nations;
prepare the nations for war against her;
summon against her the kingdoms,
Ararat, Minni, and Ashkenaz;
appoint a marshal against her;
bring up horses like bristling locusts.
28Prepare the nations for war against her,
the kings of the Medes, with their governors and deputies,
and every land under their dominion.
29The land trembles and writhes in pain,
for the LORD’s purposes against Babylon stand,
to make the land of Babylon a desolation,
without inhabitant.

30The warriors of Babylon have ceased fighting;
they remain in their strongholds;
their strength has failed;
they have become women;

Two things here ^^.  One, this is proof He is not talking about ancient Babylon because ancient Babylon is inhabited to this very day and functions like all of the other countries around it.  And two, another direct hit in verse 30.  The new "woke" military that has been created in Babylon:

This is what our new top gun fighter pilots will look like:


And more here:

Jer 51
41“How Babylone is taken,
the praise of the whole earth seized!
How Babylon has become
a horror among the nations!
42The sea has come up on Babylon;
she is covered with its tumultuous waves.
43Her cities have become a horror,
a land of drought and a desert,
a land in which no one dwells,
and through which no son of man passes.

Or if you like you could pick Washington DC, or Detroit, or Chicago, or Baltimore, or LA, or Portland, or Seattle-so many to choose from!!!

Go read it for yourself.  The nobody who writes to you today didnt want to write this one but its part of the big picture and the Boss said "write it."  The big picture is possible king of Babylon rising in orange man bad (OMB) while at the same time Babylon's judgement is well under way.

Isa 14

3When the LORD has given you rest from your pain and turmoil and the hard service with which you were made to serve, 4you will take up this taunt against the king of Babylon:

“How the oppressor has ceased,
the insolent furyb ceased!
5The LORD has broken the staff of the wicked,
the scepter of rulers,
6that struck the peoples in wrath
with unceasing blows,
that ruled the nations in anger
with unrelenting persecution.
7The whole earth is at rest and quiet;
they break forth into singing.
8The cypresses rejoice at you,
the cedars of Lebanon, saying,
‘Since you were laid low,
no woodcutter comes up against us.’
9Sheol beneath is stirred up
to meet you when you come;
it rouses the shades to greet you,
all who were leaders of the earth;
it raises from their thrones
all who were kings of the nations.
10All of them will answer
and say to you:
‘You too have become as weak as we!
You have become like us!’
11Your pomp is brought down to Sheol,
the sound of your harps;
maggots are laid as a bed beneath you,
and worms are your covers.

12“How you are fallen from heaven,
O Day Star, son of Dawn!
How you are cut down to the ground,
you who laid the nations low!
13You said in your heart,
‘I will ascend to heaven;
above the stars of God
I will set my throne on high;
I will sit on the mount of assembly
in the far reaches of the north;c
14I will ascend above the heights of the clouds;
I will make myself like the Most High.’
15But you are brought down to Sheol,
to the far reaches of the pit.
16Those who see you will stare at you
and ponder over you:
‘Is this the man who made the earth tremble,
who shook kingdoms,
17who made the world like a desert
and overthrew its cities,
who did not let his prisoners go home?’
18All the kings of the nations lie in glory,
each in his own tomb;d
19but you are cast out, away from your grave,
like a loathed branch,
clothed with the slain, those pierced by the sword,
who go down to the stones of the pit,
like a dead body trampled underfoot.
20You will not be joined with them in burial,
because you have destroyed your land,
you have slain your people.

“May the offspring of evildoers
nevermore be named!
21Prepare slaughter for his sons
because of the guilt of their fathers,
lest they rise and possess the earth,
and fill the face of the world with cities.”

22“I will rise up against them,” declares the LORD of hosts, “and will cut off from Babylon name and remnant, descendants and posterity,” declares the LORD. 23“And I will make it a possession of the hedgehog,e and pools of water, and I will sweep it with the broom of destruction,” declares the LORD of hosts.

The servant who writes to you today has been asking the Lord for insight to the days ahead and what you can see for posts recently has been the answer.

But brother D, the title of the post said there was some good news?  The good news is the Lord has given His counsel for us who are in the middle of this mess.  What are we supposed to do?

We are to seek His face to find the exact center of His will for our life.  This has tie in with Matt 25, the parable of the talents but its bigger than that.  If America is Babylon and orange man will be the anti-Christ things are going to go from bad to worse.  The good news is, if we are centered in His will there is provision, protection, and peace.  We need to prepare ourselves to become comfortable being uncomfortable.  Our situation is not unlike Daniel in the lions den or even more appropriately the situation of:

Dan 3:12

But there are some Jews whom you have set over the affairs of the province of Babylon—Shadrach, Meshach and Abednego—who pay no attention to you, Your Majesty. They neither serve your gods nor worship the image of gold you have set up.”

These 3 brothers survived in a fiery furnace.

Nobody said it would be easy but the Lord God will provide for us as long as we walk the face of this earth and are centered in His will.

And last but certainly not least there is the unexpected return of the Lord Jesus Christ to call up His Church:

1 Cor 15

50I tell you this, brothers: flesh and blood cannot inherit the kingdom of God, nor does the perishable inherit the imperishable. 51Behold! I tell you a mystery. We shall not all sleep, but we shall all be changed, 52in a moment, in the twinkling of an eye, at the last trumpet. For the trumpet will sound, and the dead will be raised imperishable, and we shall be changed. 53For this perishable body must put on the imperishable, and this mortal body must put on immortality. 54When the perishable puts on the imperishable, and the mortal puts on immortality, then shall come to pass the saying that is written:

This ^^^ event has not happened yet but it is 100% guaranteed to happen at some point in the future.

We do not have to argue with each other with beet red faced anger and blue bulging veins popping in the neck from rage while debating the timing of the harpazo/rapture.  The solution to the debate is watching and readiness each and every day.  Thats it, we do what Jesus told us to do and we can throw the endless arguments into the trash can.

Luke 21:

34“But watch yourselves lest your hearts be weighed down with dissipation and drunkenness and cares of this life, and that day come upon you suddenly like a trap. 35For it will come upon all who dwell on the face of the whole earth. 36But stay awake at all times, praying that you may have strength to escape all these things that are going to take place, and to stand before the Son of Man.”

Rev 3:10

Because you have kept my word about patient endurance, I will keep you from the hour of trial that is coming on the whole world, to try those who dwell on the earth.

The Church wasnt around for the first 69 weeks of Daniel, why would it be around for week 70?  Not one single person who has died in Christ up to this very day "needed" to go through the tribulation to make it into heaven, why should we?  But who is going to preach the gospel if we are all gone? There will be plenty of believers around during the tribulation if for no other reason than they believe, teach and argue themselves into it:

Matt 8:13

Then Jesus said to the centurion, “Go! Let it be done just as you believed it would.” And his servant was healed at that moment.

So, yea kind of a bummer if America is end times Babylon and orange man will be the anti-Christ.  It explains many things but the Lord has made provision for us.  We need to be down on our knees every day seeking the Lord's guidance for our lives.  None of this changes anything for us.  We are still directed to pray about everything and employ our talents for His Kingdom.  The faster events move, the more frequently we need direction from the Spirit of the Lord so we need to be praying all the time (just like He said).

Thats it for today.  Glory to God

grace and peace
