Christ is Bringing “Babylon the Great” Down to Ruins which
Means That “The Day of the Lord” is Coming Quickly Now
October 20, 2020
After Christ had REVEALED to John in his 3rd vision that only those who were part of THE ONE TRUE BODY OF CHRIST could be measured as truly being part of His Holy Temple and His Holy Nation recorded in Revelation Chapter 11 – John was shown that there would be 3 LAST WOES that would be poured out on the unsaved 2/3 Remnant in Satan’s Kingdom of “Babylon the Great” BEFORE “The Day of the Lord.” And as I’ve mentioned in several previous Commentaries -- Christ has clearly shown us today that the 1st 2 of those LAST 3 WOES are SPIRITUAL BLINDNESS which have ALREADY been poured out if one has THE MIND OF CHRIST to understand it. For it’s pretty obvious that Christ has LOOSED Satan to fight this Final Spiritual Battle – and that SATAN has now BLINDED those in his Spiritual Kingdom to be AT WAR with Christ and His Word about these End-Times and those of us in the Spiritual Kingdom of Christ.
And the most important TRUTH to understand is that when John saw that the 1st2 WOES had past that NO ONE had been Raptured yet because we in Christ’s Christian Army are fighting against those in Satan’s Army that he has DECEIVED to be AT WAR with Christ. CLEARLY – this Final Spiritual Battle is a War that Satan and the False Prophets in League with him will NEVER WIN. But Satan and those who exist in the SPIRITUAL CITY of “Babylon the Great” are HELL BENT in preserving “the swamp” that they exist in so they are more than willing to join forces with Satan to preserve their SPIRITUAL CITY of “Babylon the Great” where they exist in their unsaved soul existence here on this Earth.
FORTUNATELY -- Christ REVEALED to John that He has a DIFFERENT PLAN – that Satan’s Kingdom of “Babylon” would NOT go on forever. For His DIVINE PLAN from the beginning of time has been TO DEFEAT SATAN and to bring his Kingdom down to ruins. And that this Final Spiritual Battle which has the infamous name of “Armageddon” and is also called by the name of the “Gog and Magog Battle” – will END the Final Battle of MAN AT WAR AGAINST CHRIST AND HIS WORD. And clearly – it is this Final Battle that we are in now that will prompt Christ to pour out the LAST 3rd WOE when John wrote from the Lord that at the END of this Final Spiritual Battle that the world will END after the LAST 3rd WOE is poured out when then Christ had John prophesy:
“The second woe is past. Behold, the third woe is coming quickly.” (Revelation 11:14)
And while Man’s False Eschatology says that “Armageddon” and the “Gog and Magog Battle” are 2 separate Military Battles fought over the Nation of Israel AFTER the Rapture of The Church – CLEARLY “The Rapture Truth” REVEALED in Christ’s Eschatology makes no such claims AT ALL!!! For Christ was REVEALING to John that the pouring out of the LAST 3rdWOE which would come at the END of this Final Spiritual Battle would END with the whole World and Universe being destroyed by FIRE!!! In other words -- when the 2nd WOE was past – John THEN saw that “The Day of the Lord” was coming “quickly.” And this was CRYPTIC SPIRITUAL LANGUAGE to illustrate the nature of Christ’s 2nd Coming – for make no mistake John saw that THE END OF THE WORLD would “come quickly” on everyone living on Earth!!! And that when “The Day of the Lord” arrived and that it would NOT be a silent event – HARDLY!!! For it will be announced by the LOUD BLAST of the 7thTrumpet and everyone on Earth would not only witness it but would also see it at the same time. THINK ABOUT IT!!!
And as John clearly saw in his 7 visions -- this LAST DAY of Human History would be a time of DELIVERANCE for the 1/3 Remnant that Christ had chosen to save and a time of JUDGMENT for the 2/3 Remnant that He REVEALED to Zechariah who would NOT BE SAVED as we read in Zechariah 13:8-9. For the 2/3 Remnant will be “cut off” and “die” -- or as Christ described in His Apocalyptic Discourse: “one will be taken and the other left (behind for Judgment!!!) (Matthew 24:41).
So “coming quickly” does not necessarily delineate a short period of time – but it CLEARLY illustrates “the SUDDENESS” of Judgment when Christ also had both Paul and Peter prophesy that “The Day of the Lord” would come as “a thief in the night” recorded in 1stThessalonians 5:2 and 2nd Peter 3:10-18. And because Christ Himself prophesied that “The Day of the Lord” is the LAST DAY of this Human Race – it is WHY He also prophesied that we in THE ONE TRUE BODY OF CHRIST should be watching THE SIGNS of His Return because He is “coming quickly and like a thief in the night” to the unsaved when we read:
“Behold, I am coming quickly! Hold fast (to) what you have, that no one may take your crown. He who overcomes, I will make him a pillar in the Temple of My God, and he shall go out no more. I will write on him the name of My God and the name of the City of My God, the New Jerusalem, which comes down out of Heaven from My God. And I will write on him My new name.”
These verses are almost identical to the verses that Christ answered His Disciples with when they asked Him when THE END OF THE WORLD would come and the Timing of His 2nd Coming when He replied that those of us who endured to the END would be RAPTURED and DELIVERED on the LAST DAY. And OBVIOUSLY He was speaking that the Final DELIVERANCE would be at the END of the Great Tribulation -- for His reply is recorded in His Apocalyptic Discourse when He prophesied that we “Elect” which are those of us in THE ONE TRUE BODY OF CHRIST would be in THE GREAT TRIBULATION -- NOT Raptured out of it when we read:
“But he who endures to THE END shall be saved. And (before THE END OF THE WORLD HAPPENS!!!) this Gospel of the Kingdom will be preached in all the world as a witness to all the Nations, and then the end will come. (meaning that “The Day of the Lord” is at THE END OF THE WORLD when also THE RAPTURE will take place and when Christ will give us in THE ONE TRUE BODY OF CHRIST our resurrected bodies like His!!!)
It has been over 2,000 years now since John received his 7 visions of these End-Times and penned The Book of Revelation for Christ – and CLEARLY Christ has not returned yet and neither has THE RAPTURE taken place. And that’s WHY it’s important to understand from the Lord that the word “quickly” in those verses signify that His 2nd Coming would NOT happen “soon” when John penned those Words for Christ – HARDLY!!! – for John penned those words over 2000 years ago. But what Christ was trying to convey was the “sureness” and the “suddenness” of His 2nd Coming. And it’s also WHY we in THE ONE TRUE BODY OF CHRIST are told to watch so that we would NOT be “taken by surprise” when Christ finally does part the very Heavens and steps back into our dimension on “The Day of the Lord” which is the LAST DAY of this Age of Human History and also when Christ prophesied that He would RAPTURE us “Elect” at His 2nd Coming!!!
In other words -- to us True Prophets of Christ who make up the 1/3 Remnant out of this World that Christ REVEALED to Zechariah would be saved -- that LAST DAY will mean the Final Day of DELIVERANCE at the Rapture. But to the 2/3 Remnant of this World’s Population who Christ NEVER CHOSE TO SAVE – it will be a Day of Judgement that will come quickly or suddenly upon them just as “a thief in the night " because they are unprepared and unaware of what is coming NOT knowing Christ’s True Gospel. And it is WOE unto the False Prophets who have been DECEIVED by Satan when the Lord returns on the clouds of Glory – for He will come quickly and when they least expect it because they have believed in the False Eschatology of Man over “The Rapture Truth” REVEALED in Christ’s True Eschatology – THINK ABOUT IT!!!
This is exactly what the infamous Rapture verse recorded in 1stThessalonians 4:15-17 teaches along with 1st Corinthians 15:52 when Paul prophesied that “in a moment and the twinkling of an eye at the LAST Trumpet” we in THE ONE TRUE BODY OF CHRIST will be changed from Mortal to Immortal in a heartbeat and given new resurrected bodies like Christ’s Resurrected Body so that we can step into His dimension at THE RAPTURE on
“The Day of the Lord.”
And the overview of John’s 3rd vision concerning the LAST 3 WOES -- is that the 1st and 2nd WOES of SPIRITUAL BLINDNESS will be poured out on all those who REFUSE to believe “The Rapture Truth” REVEALED in Christ’s True Eschatology – which is WHY so much of Christendom today can’t see that Satan has been LOOSED to lead this Final Spiritual Battle of GOOD AND EVIL and TRUTH AND LIES which is causing today’s GREAT TRIBULATION!!!. CLEARLY -- all of the events leading up to “The Day of the Lord” were past when John saw in this 3rdvision that Christ was about to pour out the LAST 3 WOES – for John’s visions were certainly NOT in chronological order contrary to what Man’s False Eschatology teaches. And that meant that the sounding of the Last 7th Trumpet signaled that Christ would then pour out the LAST 3rd WOE and 7thPLAGUE that would result in
the END OF THE WORLD.
In other words -- the 3rd vision of the 3rd WOE is where Christ REVEALED to John that “The Day of the Lord” would then be coming “quickly” – and certainly that is WHERE we are today on Christ’s Prophetic Timeline – waiting for the 3rd WOE to be poured out. While Man’s False Eschatology claims that there is a distinction between “The Day of the Lord” and “The Day of Jesus Christ” – not to mention that Dispensationalism which is the bases for Man’s popular Eschatology of today – claims that there is a distinction between the Trumpet in Matthew 24 and the LAST TRUMPET. And that’s almost laughable if it wasn’t that so much of Christendom believes these LIES. It’s much like Bill Clinton saying “It depends on what the meaning of “is” IS!!!
When Bible Prophecy 101 would say that there are no more Trumpets after THE LAST TRUMPET -- and there are no more days after THE LAST DAY which is “The Day of the Lord” that takes place when Christ ENDS the Final Spiritual Battle by stepping back into Man’s dimension again – THINK ABOUT IT!!! Christ HIMSELF prophesied that He would come as “a thief in the night” on “The Day of the Lord” which is the LAST DAY of this Human Race. And that is exactly what Christ had John prophesy in Revelation 16 – that the Battle of “Armageddon” takes place 1st -- and then we read of the Lord’s Return with these Words:
“For they are spirits of demons, performing signs, which go out to the Kings of the Earth and of the whole world, to gather them to the Battle of that Great Day of God Almighty. “Behold, I am coming as a thief. Blessed is he who watches, and keeps his garments, lest he walk naked and they see his shame.” And they gathered them together to the place called in Hebrew, Armageddon.” (and THEN John prophesied that the 7th Trumpet is sounded after this Final Spiritual Battle which he saw everyone on Earth was in – NOT RAPTURED out of!!!)
Christ explicitly illustrated to John that the 3rdWOE takes place on “The Day of the Lord” which is also the time of His 2nd Coming. For“ coming quickly” is CRYPTIC SPIRITUAL LANGUAGE of the “sure” and unannounced 2nd Coming of Christ. In other words – the 1st 2 WOES signal that the LAST 3rd WOE is about to be poured out when the Justice of God is finally going to be administered by Christ Himself. And clearly -- John saw that after the 3rd WOE destroys the Earth and Universe by FIRE -- that THEN the Books are opened at the White Throne Judgment and all will be Judged according to whether Christ wrote our Names in His Book of Life or NOT – for Salvation was from before the foundation of the World His choice – NOT MAN’S!!!
Certainly Man’s False Eschatology Has Misinterpreted
the True Meaning of “The Day of the Lord”
I pray that anyone who reads this Commentary will understand that Christ explained what we are seeing today in His Apocalyptic Discourse recorded in Luke 21 and Matthew 24 – that He is in the process of DEFEATING SATAN and Bringing his SPIRTUAL CITY of “Babylon the Great” down to ruins just as He brought Pharaoh’s Evil Egyptian Empire down to ruins in the days of Moses. And even though I’d like to SHOUT IT FROM THE HIGHEST MOUNTAIN TOP – that “The Day of the Lord” is near and coming quickly now -- the World is so Biblically ILLITERATE TODAY and has so COMPLETELY “fallen away” from the TRUE GOSPEL of Christ that even most of Christendom doesn’t understand now what “The Day of the Lord” REALLY MEANS. That it is the LAST DAY of this Present Age of Humanity and THE END OF THE WORLD!!!
For Christ Himself prophesied that The TIMING OF THE RAPTURE will be AFTER this Great Tribulation and this Final Spiritual Battle on the LAST DAY recorded in John 6:39 – John 6:40 – John 6:44 – John 6:54 and John 11:24. And He further had Peter prophesy this very TRUTHFUL EXPLANATION about “The Day of the Lord” which AGAIN Christ REVEALED is the LAST DAY of this Present Age of Humanity when we read:
“But The Day of the Lord will come as a thief in the night, in which the Heavens will pass away with a great noise, and the elements will melt with fervent heat; both the Earth and the works that are in it will be burned up. Therefore, since all these things will be dissolved, what manner of persons ought you to be in holy conduct and godliness, looking for and hastening the coming of the day of God, because of which the Heavens will be dissolved, being on fire, and the elements will melt with fervent heat? Nevertheless we, according to His promise, look for New Heavens and a New Earth in which righteousness dwells.” (2nd Peter 3:10-13)
Sadly – the reason WHY the Lord will come “as a thief in the night” to even many Professed Christians today is because they have trusted in a FALSE GOSPEL – while others have trusted in NO GOSPEL AT ALL when we read about the LAST DAY which is “The Day of the Lord” in Luke’s Gospel. And Luke quotes Christ prophesying just what we see happening today – that “men’s hearts are failing them from FEAR” of what is coming
on the Earth when we read:
“And there will be SIGNS in the sun, in the moon, and in the stars; and on the Earth distress of Nations, with perplexity, the sea and the waves roaring; (this also has a CRYPTIC MEANING – for the “sea” refers to the sea of Humanity!!!) men’s hearts failing them from fear and the expectation of those things which are coming on the Earth, for the powers of the Heavens will be shaken. (this will happen on “The Day of the Lord” soon when Christ parts not just the RED SEA but the very HEAVENS and steps back into our Dimension to RAPTURE US!!!) Then they will see the Son of Man coming in a cloud with power and Great Glory. Now when these things BEGIN to happen, look up and lift up your heads, because your redemption draws near.”
CLEARLY – we are today living in THE TIMES OF THE SIGNS of Christ’s 2nd Coming and THE RAPTURE which will END with what Christ had Peter and all of His Disciples call “The Day of the Lord.” But sadly because of the FALSE ESCHATOLOGY of Man – so much of Christendom today thinks that the World will go on for 1007 more years AFTER the Rapture which they have been taught will include 7 years of Tribulation followed by a temporary 1000 year reign of Christ from a 3rdrebuilt Temple in Jerusalem. But that False Eschatology of Man -- be it ever so POPULAR -- is just NOT what Christ had Peter and His Disciples and Prophets of Old prophesy AT ALL!!!
HONESTLY -- Christ couldn’t say it any PLAINER than what Peter prophesied – that “The Day of the Lord” is the LAST DAY of this Human Race that is coming to a Theatre near all of us SOON!!!And one can move to what they think might be a safer place to live – or they can buy guns and stockpile food all they want – but that’s NOT going to change Christ’s DIVINE PLAN which is to DEFEAT SATAN in this Final Spiritual Battle and THEN to RAPTURE us in THE ONE TRUE BODY OF CHRIST on the LAST DAY of this Human Race –
for that is what His TRUE GOSPEL teaches!!!
Peter’s prophecy from the Lord is for sure pretty BLEAK for those who will be “taken by surprise” when Christ could any day now part the very Heavens and step back into our dimension again – for they have sadly been DECEIVED by Satan to accept Man’s False Eschatology over “The Rapture Truths” REVEALED in Christ’s True Eschatology.
But for those of us who have remained Faithful to Christ’s True Gospel of these End-Times – even though the Present Heavens and Earth are going to be destroyed by FIRE soon on the LAST DAY of Humanity -- we have the NEW HEAVENS AND THE NEW EARTH to look forward to!!!
And CLEARLY – Christ dose NOT want us in THE ONE TRUE BODY OF CHRIST going through this time now of GREAT TRIBULATION and the Final Spiritual Battle to lose hope but to keep looking up – for Christ is on His Way SOON!!! ALL OF THE SIGNS point to it!!! And that’s WHY I’m extremely sad that I was NOT able to post any of my old Commentaries on this New Revised Website – for they were all too long and I would have to redo all of them. And HONESTLY -- THE RAPTURE could happen before I would be able to get ALL OF THAT DONE -- REALLY!!!
But if you have read any of my older Commentaries -- I PRAY that you came away with this GOSPEL TRUTH – that Christ told us BEFOREHAND that there would be a time of GREAT TRIBULATION before His 2nd Coming to RAPTURE us in THE ONE TRUE BODY OF CHRIST on “The Day of the Lord” -- which is the LAST DAY of this Present Day of Human History. For clearly -- Christ Himself explained what we are going through right now which is THE GREAT TRIBULATION that is caused by His LOOSING SATAN to take a seat in the External Global Harlot Church where Satan is now leading the Final Rebellion against Christ and His True Gospel and those of us True Prophets standing up for His True Gospel.
And that event is known as “The Abomination of Desolation” when Satan is LOOSED to DECEIVE THE NATIONS and in particular those who are NOT grounded in the True Gospel of Christ. These are the Words from Christ’s Apocalyptic Discourse which explains that truth:
“Therefore when you see the ‘Abomination of Desolation,’ spoken of by Daniel the prophet, standing in the Holy Place” (whoever reads, let him understand) . . . . For then there will be Great Tribulation, such as has not been since the beginning of the world until this time, no, nor ever shall be. And unless those days were shortened, no flesh would be saved; but for the Elect’s sake those days will be shortened. . . . . For false christs and False Prophets will rise and show great signs and wonders (which includes the False Eschatology of Man!!!) to deceive, if possible, even the Elect.
See, I have told you BEFOREHAND.” (Matthew 24:15-25)
The “Abomination of Desolation” Has Occurred and we are Seeing it!!!
HONESTLY -- because “World Renowned Bible Prophecy Experts” have today become rich and famous off of selling Prophecy Books written on Man’s False Eschatology based on Dispensational Pre-Millennialism which prophesies that we living today in this 21stCentury will NOT be going through THE GREAT TRIBULATION – but that The Church will be RAPTURED even before the Great Tribulation begins – we are seeing what Christ said would be THE SIGN that His 2nd Coming was “near and coming quickly”!!! And that SIGN is “The Abomination of Desolation” when Satan is LOOSED by Christ to DECEIVE THE NATIONS and in particular those NOT grounded in the True Gospel of Christ. And CLEARLY -- these “so called” World Renowned Bible Prophecy Experts are having a harder time explaining WHY the Rapture hasn’t happened yet when even those who have hardly any Bible knowledge of these End-Times AT ALL are wondering “what in the world is going on”???!!! Especially now when every day this World seems to be spinning out of Control. THINK ABOUT IT!!!
And sadly the Deceived “so called” Renowned Bible Prophecy Experts of today’s 21st Century won’t admit it – but they fall into the same category as the Pharisees and the Sadducees did in the 1stCentury when they DENY – CONTRADICT – DISTORT – and CHALLENGE what Christ had Daniel prophesy about His 2nd Coming in Daniel’s 70th Week Prophecy. And that makes them every bit as much AT WAR with Christ and His Word about His 2nd Coming as the Pharisees and the Sadducees were AT WAR about His 1st Coming when they REFUSED to accept the Truth that He was “the Messiah the Prince” in Daniel’s 70th Week Prophecy who HAD COME.
And if Christ were here on Earth in person TODAY – we TRUE PROPHETS of Christ would expect Him to be saying the same thing to those REFUSING to believe that He is the very SAME “Messiah the Prince” in Daniel 9:27 who CAME the 1st time to the 1st Century Pharisees and Sadducees. For TODAY there are many who still refuse to believe that Christ’s 1st Coming FULFILLED the 1st Part of Daniel’s 70th Week Prophecy. In other words -- many Christian Leaders are REFUSING to believe that Christ is now IN SPIRIT still fighting against them as False Prophets in this FINAL SPIRITUAL BATTLE. And lest we forget – Christ CONDEMNED the Pharisees and the Sadducees for their LOVING MONEY more than loving THE TRUTH of His Words and True Gospel when He prophesied:
“No one can serve two masters. Either you will hate the one and love the other, or you will be devoted to the one and despise the other. You cannot serve both God and money.” The Pharisees, who LOVED MONEY, heard all this and were sneering at Jesus. He said to them, “You are the ones who justify yourselves in the eyes of others, but God knows your hearts. What people value highly is detestable in God’s sight.” (Luke 16:13-15)
That’s WHY MORE THAN ANYTHING – Christ wanted us to understand that this time of Great Apostasy and the “falling away from the Faith” is clearly part of the GREAT TRIBULATION. And that this time of Great Tribulation is FORESHADOWED by the time that Christ’s Disciples all went through at His 1st Coming – which was “the bitter with the sweet”!!! And by that I mean that they had to go through Christ’s Crucifixion to get to the 1st Resurrection which was the resurrection of the souls of all of us in THE ONE TRUE BODY OF CHRIST – AND SO IT GOES TODAY!!! For the Passion of the Christ was a time of GREAT TRIBULATION for Christ’s Disciples to say the least – and we 21stCentury Disciples of Christ have to go through this time of GREAT TRIBULATION to get to “The Day of the Lord” when Christ will give us who have resurrected souls new resurrected bodies like His so that we can step into His dimension wherever that is?????!!!
But just KNOW and TRUST that it will be “Paradise” compared to this sin-cursed World that only gets more Spiritually Darker by the minute. And when “The Day of the Lord” does come all those who LOVED MONEY more than Christ’s True Gospel will have an Eternity to regret it.
“Babylon is Falling” And Jesus Has Left The Building!!!
The Prophet Daniel was not only given a glimpse of Christ’s 1st and 2ndComing in his 3rd vision in the 2nd 6 Chapters of Daniel’s Book of Prophecy about these End-Times – but Daniel’s 70th Week Prophecy recorded in Daniel Chapter 9 also gives us a glimpse into Satan’s rise to power as “THE ANTICHRIST” in the unfaithful Congregation of God living at the time of the 2nd Coming of Christ. And clearly – Christ gave Ezekiel and John also the same visions how it would be SATAN that would rise to power to rule in the End-Time External Global Harlot Church at the End of time – NOT One Particular Man. For the Apocalyptic Literature of the Bible REVEALS that Christ gave these awesome Prophets their visions of the LOOSING OF SATAN during the final years of Satan’s 4th Kingdom that Christ had John call by the CRYPTIC NAME of “Babylon the Great” in the Book of Revelation so that we would understand that Christ’s DIVINE PLAN was to DEFEAT SATAN and to bring his Kingdom down to ruins during one last Final Spiritual Battle of GOOD AND EVIL and TRUTH AND LIES.
And we living in this 21st Century can now understand more than any other Generation that has ever lived – that not only are we in that Final Spiritual Battle TODAY – but that the reason WHY Christ has now LOOSED SATAN and his Demonic Army of 200 Million Demons is because this FINAL SPIRITUAL BATTLE of Satan and his VAST ARMY of Antichrists must occur as a prelude to THE RAPTURE and the 2nd Coming of Christ. For it is one of THE RAPTURE TRUTHS that Christ REVEALED to all of His True Prophets of Old!!!
In other words – the LOOSING of Satan is a JUDGMENT on the unfaithful External Global Harlot Church that John gives a HIGHLY CRYPTIC SPIRITUAL PICUTURE of in The Book of Revelation when he saw the Harlot End-Time Church “riding THE BEAST SYSTEM” of Satan’s Final Kingdom of “Babylon the Great.” And not only did John see that the Harlot Church was in bed with Satan and his oppressive Nations of the World which we now recognize as the United Nations – but Christ gave John his 3rd vision recorded in Revelation Chapter 11 to REVEAL that the 2 Witnesses are silenced and killed. And CLEARLY -- the 2 Witnesses represent THE ONE TRUE BODY OF CHRIST today that is being persecuted now by the False Prophets ruling in the Harlot Church along with Satan which John called “THE MOTHER OF HARLOTS” because of its unfaithfulness to Christ’s True Gospel.
Today’s External Global Apostate Church is FORESHADOWED by the unfaithful Priests in the 1st Century. For just as Christ and His Disciples were reviled and persecuted by the Pharisees and the Sadducees at His 1st Coming – we True Prophets of Christ are today being reviled and persecuted NOW at Christ’s 2nd Coming by the False Prophets in League with Satan in the External Global Harlot Church. In other words – Christ being crucified in the idolatrous Congregation in the 1st Century FORESHADOWS the True Gospel of Christ and His True Eschatology being SILENCED AND KILLED by the False Prophets today promoting the False Eschatology of Man in the idolatrous Congregation at His 2nd Coming.
And that is WHY Christ gave John his 3rd vision – for He wanted us True Prophets of His living at the time of His 2nd Coming to understand that we would also be going through a time of GREAT TRIBULATION when His TRUE ETERNAL UNIVERSAL CHURCH which the 2 Witnesses represent would be going through a time of severe persecution and that we would be reviled and HATED by ALL Nations for our standing up for Christ and His True Gospel. In other words -- Christ wanted to REVEAL that the SPIRITUAL SIGNIFICANCE of Babylon’s Fall was His Judging those who are persecuting and oppressing His True Prophets. And make no mistake -- many of those doing the reviling and persecuting TODAY are the False Prophets in the External Global Harlot Church who just as the Pharisees and the Sadducees did -- actually drove Christ and His Disciples out of the Temple. AND SO IT GOES TODAY!!!
For Christ’s GOSPEL TRUTHS have all but been cut off and silenced by Man’s False Eschatology which is the reason WHY Christ has now “LEFT THE BUILDING” of the Apostate Churches around the World and has poured out the 1st 2 of the LAST 3 WOES. For with these 1st 2 WOES which are the 5th and 6th Bowl Judgments – Christ has allowed Satan to BLIND the 2/3 Remnant of the World’s population that exist on this Earth in their unsaved soul conditions in the SPIRITUAL CITY of “Babylon the Great.” And part of that BLINDNESS is their REFUSAL to believe that we are even in THE GREAT TRIBULATION and that Christ is executing JUDGMENT against them for their unfaithfulness to Him and His True Eschatology!!!
In other words -- what we learn from Christ’s True Eschatology is that the 1st Century’s APOSTASY foreshadows the GREAT APOSTASY that Christ had Paul and His other Prophets prophesy would take place BEFORE His 2nd Coming. And that’s WHY today is almost an instant repeat of the 1st Century when Christ was crucified in Jerusalem. For the City of Jerusalem had become so CORRUPT and EMBELLISHED with the False Gospel which later became known as Judaism and what is still to this day a CHRIST-REJECTING RELIGION – that the Pharisees and the Sadducees didn’t even recognize that Christ was “the Messiah the Prince” that Christ had Daniel prophesy in his 70th Week Prophecy who would come to save them from their sins. AND SO IT GOES TODAY!!!
For the most popular Eschatology of Man today still DENIES that it was Christ’s 1st Coming in Daniel’s 70th Week Prophecy that prophesied HIM as “the Messiah the Prince” who CAME. And so much of Christendom has sadly NOW accepted THE LIE that Daniel 9:27 is a prophecy about a Future “ANTICHRIST” who has NOT YET COME but will come AFTER the Rapture of the Church and BEFORE the Great Tribulation. But this False Eschatology of Man which is based on Dispensational Pre-Millennialism -- is no less than Judaism in New Testament Apparel -- THINK ABOUT IT!!!
The reference to Sodom in John’s 3rd vision recorded in Revelation 11:8 -- is a reference to the degrading and base Spiritual condition that the City of Jerusalem at the 1st Coming of Christ had fallen into which only FORESHADOWS the SPIRITUAL DECLENSION of the Harlot Apostate Congregation of Christ TODAY which has also “fallen away” from the TRUTH of Christ’s True Gospel. And the reference to Egypt was a reference of a City engrafted into IDOLATRY AND PAGAN WORSHIP which not only described The Temple in Christ’s Day -- but also FORESHADOWS the Harlot Church of The Book of Revelation. For John saw in his vision how the External Global Apostate Church at the time of Christ’s 2nd Coming would also “fall away” and be just as Worldly as the Pagan Nations surrounding Jerusalem at His 1st Coming.
John gives us a HIGHLY CRYPTIC SPIRITUAL PICTURE of how the unfaithful Congregation today is in a sense crucifying Christ all over again by crucifying His 2 Witnesses which represents those of us in THE ONE TRUE BODY OF CHRIST. For clearly -- John’s 3rd vision prophesies how the testimony of THE ONE TRUE BODY of Christ has now TODAY been “killed and silenced” as we read in Revelation 11:7-10.CLEARLY -- what Christ was trying to convey through John’s 3rd vision above – was that the Great City of Jerusalem had become just as corrupt as the WORLD OF PAGAN UNSAVED PEOPLE at the time of Christ’s 1st Coming. AND SO IT GOES TODAY at Christ’s 2nd Coming with the Apostate Harlot External Global Church becoming just like the godless unsaved World by letting Worldliness creep into the End-Time Congregation and overcome it.
But make no mistake --this External Global Harlot Church that John saw in his 7 visions that would fall into APOSTASY is NOT to be confused with the True Eternal Universal Church that Christ has established and is the SPIRITUAL CITY of “Heavenly Jerusalem” where those of us in THE ONE TRUE BODY OF CHRIST dwell on this Earth in our saved soul existence. For we in Christ True Church are part of the “two witnesses” that John saw in his 3rd vision who have remained FAITHFUL to Christ and His True Eschatology about these End-Times!!! And we believe THE RAPTURE TRUTHS REVEALED in Christ’s Word about these End-Times that BABYLON MUST FALL!!!
The Babylonian Captivity in Daniel and Ezekiel’s Day
Foreshadows The Babylonian Captivity of Satan Bringing Worldliness
into the Harlot Church Today!!!
CLEARLY – The Babylon Captivity of Daniel and Ezekiel’s Day FORESHADOWS the End-Time Captivity of the External Global Harlot Church when it is pretty OBVIOUS that Christ has LOOSED Satan as JUDGMENT. And Satan has wasted no time in neutralizing the True Gospel of Christ by bringing Worldliness into the Harlot Church. In other words – in these End-Times it is SPIRITUALLY SIGNIFICANT that Daniel’s prophetic office coincided with the exile of Christ’s unfaithful Congregation to BABYLON. For the Babylonian Captivity is presented in the Bible as a FORESHADOW and a WARNING to the End-Time Congregation of Christ.
But sadly – most of Christendom is NOT heeding this WARNING!!! For so much of Christendom today has now become part of the Harlot Church that Christ REVEALED to John in his 7 visions in The Book of Revelation. And just like the unfaithful Congregation in Daniel and Ezekiel and Jeremiah’s Day which was still unfaithful when Christ began His Ministry in the 1st Century – the External Global Harlot Church of today is the MOST UNFAITHFUL of all Congregations of Christ by far.
For we now have the COMPLETED AND CLOSED Word of Christ and Professed Christians still REFUSE to believe Christ’s Word -- but would rather add to and subtract from it what they think in their own imaginations the Events will be that will take place before the 2nd Coming of Christ. When CLEARLY -- the times of unfaithfulness in the Old Testament Days foreshadow the Harlot Church’s CAPTIVITY today to WORLDLINESS and Satan’s LIES and DECEPTIONS!!!
And that’s WHY it just can’t be reiterated enough that all 4 of Daniel’s visons in the last 6 Chapters of The Book of Daniel prophesy the GREAT TRIBULATION that Christ Himself prophesied that we True Prophets would be going through before His 2nd Coming. When Christ REVEALED to Daniel that He would take His restraint off of Satan and LOOSE him for his “LITTLE SEASON” to rule as “THE ANTICHRIST” as JUDGMENT on the Unfaithful Harlot Apostate Church of TODAY. For the vision of Daniel Chapter 8 when Christ REVEALED that “the little horn” was SATAN is SPIRITUALLY SIGNIFICANT for those of us TODAY going through this time of GREAT TRIBULATION. And that’s because Daniel’s last 4 visions give additional details on the Kingdoms that would prevail on the Earth from The Kingdom of Babylon in King Nebuchadnezzar’s day until the LAST DAY which is TODAY’S 4th and Final Kingdom of Satan that we are living in NOW which describes “the little horn” and the End-Time “ANTICHRIST” who is SATAN!!!
And what we need to know in watching “BABYLON FALL” – is that this vision of “THE ANTICHRIST” given to Daniel in Chapter 8 concentrates especially on Satan’s power to rule on Earth Mightily during this Final “little season” near the End of the World just as Christ allowed King Nebuchadnezzar to rule mightily over his unfaithful Congregation in Daniel and Ezekiel and Jeremiah’s Day – THINK ABOUT IT!!!
And clearly --when Christ wanted to punish Israel and Judah for their APOSTASY – He ALLOWED the wicked Assyrians and the Babylonians to corrupt them and then to finally DESTROY the unsaved Remnant that were never chosen as Christ’s “Elect.” For every Generation has had only a 1/3 Remnant at anytime in History that Christ has chosen to save as He REVEALED to Zechariah recorded in Zechariah 13:8-9. And the JUDGMENT in Daniel and Ezekiel and Jeremiah’s Day FORESHADOWS this Final Judgment today – which is another case of Christ REMOVING His hand of restraint on Satan and those in League with him just like he did in the Old Testament Days for JUDGMENT.
In other words -- Christ was then and now TODAY -- using SATAN and his godless Army as His instrument of JUDGMENT. And rather than applying His hand of restraint on Israel’s enemies in the Old Testament Days – He LOOSED their enemies upon them as JUDGEMENT for their unfaithfulness to Him. THINK ABOUT IT -- that aspect of Christ’s control even over SATAN and those in League with him is ESSENTIAL to our understanding of these End-Times. For all of Christ’s True Prophets saw that before Christ’s 2nd Coming that He would allow SINFULNESS in the World to increase by releasing His Restraint on Satan. And that the LOOSING of Satan would be a JUDGMENT on those who were unfaithful to Christ and His Word – for Satan would DECEIVE THEM and BLIND them right into Hell with him!!!
And this RAPTURE TRUTH REVEALED to Christ’s True Prophets – was that we True Prophets of Christ living before His 2nd Coming today would have to go through the Final time of BABYLONIAN JUDGMENT just like Daniel and Ezekiel and Jeremiah had to go through when Babylon and King Nebuchadnezzar ruled over them!!! And what we need to understand going through this time of Judgment on “Babylon the Great” -- is that Christ’s JUDGMENT is NOT released on those who are faithful to Him –
but on those who ARE NOT!!!
And just as Christ had Jeremiah tell the FAITHFUL during that time of JUDGMENT -- that even though they were going through 70 years of Babylon’s rule over them in captivity – that Christ’s DIVINE PLAN was to give them hope and a future. The CRYPTIC MESSAGE of the Babylonian Captivity was that the REAL TRUE Eternal Promised Land of the Faithful in Daniel and Ezekiel and Jeremiah’s Day would not be just their return to the LITERAL City of Jerusalem – but would be their DEVLIVERANCE at the End of time to the NEW HEAVENS AND THE NEW EARTH as we read in Jeremiah 29:11 -- which is just what Christ is still telling us faithful TODAY!!!
For even though Satan has been LOOSED today and SIN AND IMMORALITY AND WICKEDNESS along with LAWLESSNESS are spreading around the Globe like wildfire with Satan now LOOSED as “THE ANTICHRIST” to rule mightily just as King Nebuchadnezzar had in Daniel and Ezekiel and Jeremiah’s Day -- it marks Satan’s Final Epoch rule of this World. And this 4th Kingdom of Satan TODAY is identified in Christ’s True Eschatology as the Kingdom that Daniel saw in his vision that would finally be brought down to ruins. In other words -- Christ REVEALED to Daniel that sin and WORLDLINESS would infiltrate His Congregation again. And that as a PUNISHMENT Christ would use SATAN and his Army of godless men just as He had used the Babylonians of King Nebuchadnezzar’s Day to rule as His instrument of Judgment for the Harlot Church’s unfaithfulness to Him!!!
And what is so important for us to understand TODAY who are faithful to Christ – is that Pharaoh and King Nebuchadnezzar were BOTH “types” of SATAN. And that the unsaved of all the Nations of this World will be serving the False God who is SATAN right up until the 2nd Coming of Christ – NOT One Particular Man of the Future who hasn’t even stepped up on the stage of Humanity yet. And clearly -- Christ wanted us living at the time of His 2nd Coming to understand that there would be FALSE PROPHETS who would say just like Hananiah did in Jeremiah’s Day that Christ somehow GOT IT ALL WRONG. And just like Hananiah did – they would make God’s people trust in LIES about how long the Babylonian Judgment would last when we read Christ’s condemnation on Hananiah:
“Go and tell Hananiah, saying, ‘Thus says the Lord: “You have broken the yokes of wood, but you have made in their place yokes of iron.” For thus says the Lord of hosts, the God of Israel: “I have put a yoke of iron on the neck of ALL these Nations, that they may serve Nebuchadnezzar King of Babylon; and they shall serve him. I have given him the beasts of the field also.” (Jeremiah 28:13-14)
CLEARLY -- the CRYPTIC MESSAGE and SPIRITUAL TRUTH that Christ was trying to convey to us TODAY living in this time now when the New Testament Congregation of Christ is being Judged for their unfaithfulness to Christ and His Word -- is that this wicked King of Babylon was a “type” of Satan which the whole unsaved world is still serving TODAY and WILL SERVE until Christ’s 2nd Coming!!!
For Christ REVEALED to Daniel and Ezekiel and John in their visions of these End-Times that there is NO EARTHLY King that could have that much power -- EXCEPT of course “the god of this Present Age of Humanity” who did gain SPIRITUAL DOMINION over all the Earth when he was successful in getting Adam and Eve to disobey Christ in the Garden of Eden. And that False god was of course SATAN who is the god of the 2/3 Remnant of this World that Christ REVEALED to Zechariah that would NOT BE SAVED but would serve SATAN right up until the 2nd Coming of Christ when they would be “cut off” and perish as we read recorded in Zechariah 13:8-9!!!
And it just can’t be reiterated enough that Christ Himself prophesied that the #1 SIGN of His 2nd Coming would be that of SPIRITUAL DECLENSION and a time of GREAT APOSTASY when MANY False Prophets would come deceiving even the very “Elect” if that were possible as we read in Matthew Chapter 24. And clearly – APOSTASY is the willful rejection of Christ and His teachings by Professed Christian Believers who in their “strong delusion” erroneously think that Christ somehow got it ALL WRONG in His Eschatology but that Man in his False Eschatology has gotten it ALL RIGHT. I DON’T THINK SO!!!And that is exactly what we see happening today when Paul prophesied from the Lord that those who believe A LIE – meaning Man’s False Eschatology and NOT Christ’s True Eschatology – will come under STRONG DELUSION because they REFUSE to believe that we are even in the Final Spiritual Battle and the time of Great Tribulation when Christ is OBVIOUSLY now BRINGING “BABYLON THE GREAT” DOWN in ruins by using this WORLDWIDE Plague of the Coronavirus which is causing the whole Global Economy to collapse!!!
We True Prophets of Christ have NOW come to the Final Spiritual Battle whether Man’s False Eschatology prophesies it or NOT. And there is NO going back now to a Golden Age of Worldwide Bliss and harmony where the World returns to “normal” again after Christ has clearly allowed this Coronavirus to BRING SATAN’S Kingdom of BABYLON DOWN – HARDLY!!! For this is a World that has now come under the FINAL JUDGMENT OF GOD!!! And there is only faith found in the 1/3 Remnant that Christ chose to save before the foundation of the World who are standing firm on His Promise to help us overcome even in this time now of GREAT TRIBULATION!!!
Christ Will Bring us “Elect” Through This Time Now of Great Tribulation
CLEARLY -- Satan and those in League with him will continue to use their evil Communist and godless Regimes to oppress those of us in Christ’s SPIRITUAL CITY of “Heavenly Jerusalem” here on Earth. But Christ REVEALED to Daniel in his LAST VISION recorded in Daniel Chapter 12 that He will stand up and fight for us and will DEFEAT SATAN by bringing his last Evil Empire down to ruins. And even though the Elites who want to rule this World do NOT realize that they are really serving SATAN – in their creating this evil Coronavirus Christ has turned their EVIL DEEDS back on them as JUDGMENT upon their own heads!!! For He is using this Coronavirus to bring their own EVIL EMPIRE DOWN to ruins!!! THINK ABOUT IT – their evil deeds have boomeranged on them. And while Christ is using the Coronavirus against Satan and those in League with him to bring Babylon down to ruins today – He is making a distinction between those of us in His SPIRITUAL CITY of “Heavenly Jerusalem” who will soon be DELIVERED – and those in Satan’s SPIRITUAL CITY of “Babylon the Great” who will be “LEFT BEHIND” on the LAST DAY for JUDGMENT!!!
Christ REVEALED THE RAPTURE TRUTH to John in his 7th vision that Satan’s Kingdom and SPIRITUAL CITY of “Babylon the Great” represents the unsaved 2/3 Remnant of this World who do NOT have the “seal” of God invisibly written upon them by Christ but “THE MARK OF THE BEAST.” And because they are all ANTICHRIST and in opposition to Christ – it is Christ’s DIVINE PLAN that “Babylon WILL FALL” BEFORE the Final Deliverance on the LAST DAY. But until then we “Elect” must MOVE FORWARD IN FAITH trusting Christ to DELIVER US SOON!!!
For the DELIVERANCE from Pharaoh in Moses’ Day also FORESHADOWED what Christ REVEALED to Daniel in His 70th Week Prophecy – that He would come Himself the 1st time as “the Messiah the Prince” to deliver His people – but the 2nd time to CONSUMMATE His restored Kingdom of Heaven and to set His People FREE once and for all Eternity from SATAN!!! And what Moses said to the Israelites at the Red Sea still applies to us today which prophesies:
“The Lord will fight for you; you need only to be still.” (Exodus 14:14)
Just know that Christ is fighting for us today against Satan and those in League with Him and HE WILL DELIVER US out of this time of GREAT TRIBULATION soon. That we only need to “be still” and trust in His DIVINE PLAN of DEFEATING SATAN and bringing Satan’s 4th and Final Kingdom of this World down where Satan will no longer be “the ruler of this World” or “the god of this Age”!!!
Until Christ sounds His Final 7th Trumpet -- just know that I will be Forever in His Service . . . . . Mary Sullivan
