Notice that this Great Babylon will be famous for its music too. Which nation is the greatest exporter of modern music? It is a music, like everything else she exports, that carries a "magic spell" - sorcery.
D5. Jezebel: The End Time
Queen of Heaven Demoness
Of all the major leaders at the Third Reich put on trial in Nuremberg at the end of the last world war, only one - Albert Speer, Hitler's Chief Architect and Minister of Armaments - pleaded guilty to war crimes. The others had swallowed so many lies and in the process progressively dulled their consciences, that they ceased being sensitive to the difference between good and evil. The blood of millions of men, women and children were on them, and with it, strong satanic legal grounds for demonisation. When a person goes deep into satanism - and nazism was just another variation on the occult - it is hard to come out of it again. With every chain that the Adversary wraps around you because you have conceeded power over you to him, the harder it becomes to get out. Most of the chief nazis were defiant until the end, offering paltry excuses for their evil deeds. They loved Satan more than God. And so they perished.
We are talking for the second week running about the demoness Jezebel. We have seen the two historical characters and how the demoness of the same name lures men and women into her snare. We saw that she empitomised the spirit of harlotry and idolatry. However, she is much more that that. In the Book of Revelation principally, she has a much wider rôle than leading dupes like Solomon into paganism. Her influence, as I hinted last time, is global and works as much on nations as a whole as on individuals. Here is how she is described by the apostle John:
No doubt you have read, or have heard much, about "Babylon the Great". She is a favourite theme of many end-time writers and commentators. Like the original Jezebel who was a queen and a false prophetess, so the original Babylon was a city, also known as Babel, famous for its abortive tower and the division of the universal language of man into many. The original city fell years before John penned this revelation. This one, however, is a "city" that exists at the end-time just before Yah'shua (Jesus) returns. She is described here as demonised with every type of evil spirit there is. Moreover, she has such wealth and influence over all nations that she clearly has a position of prominence in the world. Not only is she the source of the world's wealth but of every other nation's wealth by virtue of their trading with her. She is a "city" that lives in luxury.
"Fallen! Fallen is Babylon the Great!
She has become a home for demons
and a haunt for every evil spirit,
a haunt for every unclean and detestable bird.
For all the nations have drunk
the maddening wine of her adulteries.
The kings of the earth committed adultery with her,
and the merchants of the earth grew rich from her excessive luxuries."
To help you identify who the end-time Babylon is, let me point out that in the Bible a "city" can either be a small village or a whole state. Anciently cities were states in themselves which grew in power and influence to dominate and control other city-states to form empires. Babylon itself began in this way. Therefore cities - be they small villages or large empires - had their own "kings" - kings who were either local sheiks or mighty rulers of large dominions such as the Babylonian empire. Thus our end-time city is both a city and a state, that state being defined by its capital-city. When we speak of Berlin or London we are also speaking of Germany and the United Kingdom since these are the capital cities of these nations. Likewise Jerusalem, as capital city, also represents the whole of Judah or of unified Israel.
Concerning latter-day Babylon, Yah'shua (Jesus) goes on to warn through the apostle John:
We are reminded in reading this of the warning given to Lot and his family to leave the city of Sodom. Though Abraham pleaded that the city be spared, he had to prove to Yahweh that there were enough righteous people living within her walls. Only four people left that city, and one perished on the way. In that city, we are told, "the men of Sodom were wicked and were sinning greatly against Yahweh" (Gen.13:13, NIV).
"Come out of her, my people,
so that you will not share in her sins,
so that you will not receive any of her plagues;
for her sins are piled up to heaven,
and Elohim (God) has remembered her crimes.
Give back to her as she has given;
pay her back double for what she has done.
Mix her a double portion from her own cup.
Give her as much torture and grief
as the glory and luxury she gave herself.
In her heart she boasts,
'I sit as queen; I am not a widow,
and I will never mourn.'
Therefore in one day her plagues will overtake her:
death, mourning and famine.
She will be consumed by fire,
for mighty is Yahweh-Elohim (the Lord God) who judges her"
This city is later used as a model by Yahweh to describe what it will be like for Israel if she ever departs from her covenants:
When the notthern Kingdom of Israel was expelled from Canaan by the Assyrians, she never returned. Only Judah remained until suffering the same fate, first at the hands of the Babylonians, and then finally at the hands of the Romans. The Israelite tribes for the most migrated north over the Caucasus Mountains and then West into Europe and finally into the Americas, Australasia, and Southern Africa. Others went elsewhere. All the Bible prophecies following the division of the Kingdom of Solomon into Israel and Judah refer to two distinct tribal groups and nations which are not to be joined together until the very end time as a single national called "Israel". The little country in the Middle East which styles itself as the "Republic of Israel" is not biblical Israel but a Khazar entity set up by the satanist Roschschild family. It is something else which is beyond the scope of this essay (see Is Israel Israel? and other links). To cut a long story short, the Israelite tribes have not yet been joined together in the Holy Land but remain in their places of diaspora in the world.
"When such a person hears the words of this oath, he invokes a blessing on himself and therefore thinks, "I will be safe, even though I persist in going my own way." This will bring disaster on the watered land as well as the dry. Yahweh will never be willing to forgive him; his wrath and zeal will burn against that man. All the curses written in this book will fall upon him, and Yahweh will blot out his name from under heaven. Yahweh will single him out from all the tribes of Israel for disaster, according to all the curses of the covenant written in this Book of the Law (Torah). Your children who follow you in later generations and foreigners who come from distant lands will see the calamities that have fallen on the land and the diseases with which Yahweh has afflicted it. The whole land will be a burning waste of salt and sulfur -- nothing planted, nothing sprouting, no vegetation growing on it. It will be like the destruction of Sodom and Gomorrah, Admah and Zeboiim, which Yahweh overthrew in fierce anger. All the nations will ask: "Why has Yahweh done this to this land? Why this fierce, burning anger?" And the answer will be: "It is because this people abandoned the covenant of Yahweh, the God of their fathers, the covenant he made with them when he brought them out of Egypt. They went off and worshiped other gods and bowed down to them, gods they did not know, gods he had not given them. Therefore Yahweh's anger burned against this land, so that he brought on it all the curses written in this book. In furious anger and in great wrath Yahweh uprooted them from their land and thrust them into another land, as it is now" (Deut.29:19-28, NIV).
Those of you familiar with the history of the northern and southern Kingdoms of Israel and Judah, respectively, will remember that these were people who tended to descend into idolatry, harlotry and depravity. We saw last time what Queen Jezebel did to the northern Kingdom under Ahab. This northern Kingdom and Sodom are types of the end-time "Babylon the Great" and all three are ruled by the spirit of Jezebel. There are still ten Israelite tribes in dispersion but only one has the power and the wealth to influence and thus control every nation in the world today. Speaking of Jerusalem and by extension Judah, which fell for the same demonic spirit, Isaiah speaks descriptive words of any nation under Jezebel's influence, no less "Babylon the Great" today:
You all know what the principal sin of Sodom and Gemorah was so I do not need to go into that here. Suffice to say, as any deliverance minister will tell you, the demons associated with it are amongst the toughest to get rid of.
"The look on their faces testifies against them;
they parade their sin like Sodom;
they do not hide it.
Woe to them!
They have brought disaster upon themselves"
The destruction of Babylon the Great is as swift as the destruction of the original Sodom:
The end of this great city and nation spells disaster for international commerce. It represents the end of the economic system as we know it today. Without going into all the why's and wherefore's, we may say that the end of this great end-time apostate Israelite nation is one of the signs that the return of Yah'shua (Jesus) is just round the corner. And though we, like Abraham, may wish to spare her destruction because of the righteous within her, the fact of the matter is that Yahweh will gather out the righteous from her as he did Lot and his family. When they have been gathered out, the city and nation will perish.
"When the kings of the earth who committed adultery with her and shared her luxury see the smoke of her burning, they will weep and mourn over her. Terrified at her torment, they will stand far off and cry:
"The merchants of the earth will weep and mourn over her because no one buys their cargoes any more - cargoes of gold, silver, precious stones and pearls; fine linen, purple, silk and scarlet cloth; every sort of citron wood, and articles of every kind made of ivory, costly wood, bronze, iron and marble; cargoes of cinnamon and spice, of incense, myrrh and frankincense, of wine and olive oil, of fine flour and wheat; cattle and sheep; horses and carriages; and bodies and souls of men" (Rev.18:9-13, NIV).
"'Woe! Woe, O great city,
O Babylon, city of power!
In one hour your doom has come!'
Now this is not just "any old nation" - this is an Israelite nation, and the fact that it may have forgotten its identity and the covenants it entered into with Yahweh centuries before is entirely besides the point - for the children of Israel are not only held to stricter account than non-Israelite nations but also enjoy blessings that alone belong to Abraham, Isaac and Jacob and to no other nation. And if Yahweh did not spare ancient Israel and Judah when they entered into the self-same sins and forgot their covenant with the Almighty, then, being that He is a God of consistency whose Word never returns to Him void, Yahweh will pass sentence on modern Israel today. And remember, we are not talking about the little Talmudic Jewish state in Palestine! "How could Yahweh ever associate Israel with Babylon?" you may ask. The same way that he called Jerusalem "Sodom" (Jer.23:14).
This great nation - this "Babylon the Great" - is not the only Israelite nation but is the most powerful of them all, and therefore its leader in the end-times. She is allied with other Israelite nations too all of whom share not only the same noble ancestry but also the same tendency to feud amongst each other, the same tendency to descend into paganism, idolatry and harlotry, yet sharing strong commercial links. Thus she and her allies are possessed of the same spirit, and that spirit happens to be the demoness JEZEBEL.
I am hoping that by now you have linked what I said last time with what I am telling you today. You will not find many people preaching these things. They are critically important and if you miss them you will remain ignorant of end-time events that will spell either salvation or doom for you.
Perhaps some of you caught these words in the last citation I gave you - if you missed them, pay close attention now:
Some translations render this last part as "slaves" and that is indeed one sense of the original. However, we will under stand this amazing portion of scripture if we simply translate it literally:
"The merchants of the earth will weep and mourn over her because no one buys their ... bodies and souls of men" (ibid.).
Babylon the Great is the world's leading merchant of flesh and of psychic energy. The selling of flesh - whilst it includes slavery - also includes harlotry, pornography, body parts for surgery, and so forth ... anything to do with the flesh of humans. This will also be the country that offers the most human sacrifices to Satan both in terms of aborted babies and Satanic ritual murders.
"The merchants of the earth will weep and mourn over her because no one buys their ... bodies/flesh and psyches of men"
Finally, there is psuche or psyche. Christianity is the religion of the Ruach haQodesh (Holy Spirit) whereas all other religion is of the PSYCHE - that is, latent human powers released illegally by witchcraft, demonic music, idolatry, false religion, the occult, etc., and controlled by demons.
Satanism is in the business of, amongst other things, setting up satanic blood-lines and exporting them abroad as part of their plan for world domination. The leaders of the world are, for the most part, related just as the kings and queens of old were, and are. Babylon the Great is not only in the business of trading sex but also soul power or psychic enegy. The illegal (in Yahweh's eyes) release of psychic energy through commandment-breaking and devilish practices empowers Satan, the demons, and his end-time human slaves for the purpose of deceiving as many as possible and dragging them down to hell before Yah'shua (Jesus) returns.
The destruction of this great Jezebel nation causes worldwide consternation. We read further:
Whatever our national, allegiances may be, the true children of God will rejoice when this happens. Do not be deceived by false appeals to patriotism! Every despot has appealed to patriotism. Napoleon did, Hitler did - but it was not true patriotism - but an allegiance to a demonised despot and his demonised cronies who became the substitutes for the actual people. An appeal to nationalism and patriotism is always made by tyrants who commit murder with one hand and praise the people with the other. Our allegiance is to our country under Yahweh.
"They [the merchants] will say, 'The fruit you longed for is gone from you. All your riches and splendor have vanished, never to be recovered.' The merchants who sold these things and gained their wealth from her will stand far off, terrified at her torment. They will weep and mourn 16 and cry out:
"'Woe! Woe, O great city, dressed in fine linen, purple and scarlet, and glittering with gold, precious stones and pearls! In one hour such great wealth has been brought to ruin!'
"Every sea captain, and all who travel by ship, the sailors, and all who earn their living from the sea, will stand far off. When they see the smoke of her burning, they will exclaim, 'Was there ever a city like this great city?' They will throw dust on their heads, and with weeping and mourning cry out:
"'Woe! Woe, O great city, where all who had ships on the sea became rich through her wealth! In one hour she has been brought to ruin!
Rejoice over her, O heaven! Rejoice, saints and apostles and prophets! Elohim (God) has judged her for the way she treated you'" (Rev.18:14-20, NIV).
The end of this nation - this Babylon the Great - is final - she will never be rebuilt again, just like the original Babylon. John's account ends in this way:
"Then a mighty angel picked up a boulder the size of a large millstone and threw it into the sea, and said:
With such violence the great city of Babylon will be thrown down, never to be found again. The music of harpists and musicians, flute players and trumpeters, will never be heard in you again. No workman of any trade will ever be found in you again. The sound of a millstone will never be heard in you again. The light of a lamp will never shine in you again. The voice of bridegroom and bride will never be heard in you again. Your merchants were the world's great men. By your magic spell all the nations were led astray. In her was found the blood of prophets and of the saints, and of all who have been killed on the earth"
There are many who say that Babylon the Great is the Roman Catholic Church. Well, she is one part of it, and has played a major rôle in the corruption of Christianity by being a syncretism of the religion of Christ with occultism. Babylon is also, by extension, all nations that come under her influence, and thus "the blood of the prophets and of the saints, and of all who have been killed on the earth" is the fruit of the spirit of Babylon - which is Jezebel - working on all nations. Just as one city is the head of this nation, so this nation is the head of all the other nations in the world - first through her direct alliances and second those whom she influences with her power and wealth.
The following chapter in the Book of Revelation describes the rejoicing of the children of Yahweh. The end of this nation is good news not only for the world, however, but her people also - those who have been saved out of her. Her devastation will mean the devastation - like a dominoes effect - of her chief Israelite allies, and of all the other nations in the world too. The only ones who will not be affected will be those who have been gathered out of the world to the Cities of Refuge.
I think everyone hearing what I had said today knows who that Great City is, but in case there is anyone with lingering doubts, I will say it clearly: Babylon the Great is Washington D.C. and the United States of America and her Israelite allies are the principal nations of Europe like Canada, Australia, Great Britain, Germany, Scandinavia, France, Italy, and the other nations that will form the European Union (EU), but principally the United Kingdom who has the closest ties with the USA. These are the Jezebel nations.
Next time we shall see how the spirit of Jezebel is competing for world domination and examine her chief rival, the spirit of Allah which controls the Muslim world. For now be aware that the whole cultural and spiritual milieu of the West, led by the United States, is the spirit of Jezebel - all of it. We here in Europe are as much a part of it as our brethren in north America. Also next time I will attempt to map out what is probably going to happen in the days leading up to this apocalyptic end of America and the West. This message is not popular and will be rejected by the vast majority of Christians, just as the Israelites and Judahaites rejected similar messages delivered to their nations from Yahweh centuries ago. History repeats itself - painfully and predictably.
Our part is to get on our knees and repent both for our own seduction by, and involvement in, the Jezebel system, and to petition Yahweh to deliver his people to the places of refuge which He has designated. We at the very least are required to "get out" of Babylon and, like those living in Judah at that time, head for the mountains (Mt.24:16; Mk.13:14; Lk.21:21). Amen.
