Babylon The Great Is Falling
Introduction: Editor's Note:
The book "Babylon The Great is Falling" is a book online for you to read free and it has some relevant information with which you will find agreement as we did. It is easy to come to the conclusion that Jack D. Hook did, but the jury is still out. If you remember Kim Miller, "Monte" of Concerned Christians, who disappeared with approximately 80 people, not found yet to our knowledge, preached this message along with a prophecy that Monte was to be one of prophets in Jerusalem who was to be killed by Antichrist in the year 2000.
To be the Antichrist, one would have to be the most powerful and trusted leader in the world and the United States does not have that privilege. Even though the U.S. has bailed European countries out frequently, it is not truly trusted. We are told that almost daily from Congress but watching the parade, we have come to different conclusions. While citizens were busy watching the persecution of a president for almost a decade, nobody minded the store and the life style, citizens are used to, is about to come to an end. In many, love of the country and patriotism has been replaced with apathy toward government or anger. Arguments and criticism of citizen's behavior seem to be the entertainment day after day on too many airways oppressing and depressing their once wholesome lives.
A SHIFT IN POWER?
We believe there may be a shift in power to Europe since prime minister Toni Blair was re-elected. He now has a green light to change the English pound to the Euro. The European Union has plans to add many more countries to it, bringing the people count to somewhere around a billion people. Although there were some reports that the EU is on shacky ground, the Bible states that the Roman Empire will reemerge as a power in the endtime.
President Bush in his speech in Poland finally revealed what his intentions are. He stated that we should not think of East and West as being a divided country but that the U.S. is behind the E.U. for greater unity. He wants Europe to be a free, diverse, united, democratic and to be an open continent. President Bush wants to assist the European Union in gaining power and strength in their quest for freedom and internal reform. He wants to erase the false lines that divided Europe and create free markets. He wants the E.U. to include the Baltics to the Black Sea and allow any country to become a member and share the responsibility. NATO was also to be open for new members.
No more Muenichs.. What you build, you keep, he stated. No-one should take away your country. The U.S. will help you to advance NATO. Poland eastward, northward and onward. We welcome a greater role for the European Union. The U.S. wants to partner with the European Union which includes the Ukraine, Russia. NATO is no enemy of Russia. Even though President Bush was advised to join with Russia, he rejected that notion by insisting that the E.U. should take Russia under their wing since the country is European and in their backyard. There should be freedom to publish and worship and there should be a unity of values.
Transatlantic ties cannot be broken. He quoted the Pope and stated that living faith is the product of the same history reaching from Jerusalem north and west. Together we need to bring peace to Africa and fight the spread of Aids and bring economic and legal reform. The president spoke of a house with many mansions where there is room for all. Pointing to the figure of Christ, lift up your hearts.
An Alliance of liberty is a house of freedom. One would think President Bush had scaled the throne of the United Nations. The message for Mexico was the same. He plans to lift Mexico up to keep people from leaving.
Not only did the United Nations officially try their first international court case and convicted two Catholic nuns to prison, one 15 years, the other a few years less, but the United States has been kicked out of the Human Rights Commission. Jeane Kirkpatrick, former member of the United Nations, made some interesting remarks during a conference at a Conservative Seminar recently. Jeane stated that the U.S. was a founding member in 1947 of the Human Rights Commission and it was difficult for her to understand that the U.S. was dropped since it has been a leader to Human Rights per media reports. Jeanne said that she came to the conclusion that the U.N. made an important move to block the discussion of oppression and depression which results in dictatorship.
The U.N. seeks to silence those whom they repress or oppress and withdraw accreditation from those who have voiced this repression. When accreditation is withdrawn from Western countries they cannot participate. Kirkpatrick named all the third world countries like China, Algeria, Burma, Russia, Cuba, Vietnam and a number of others and said that they are dictatorships and they have a two third majority in the U.N. She said three angios versus two angios, the U.S. and France (E.U.). Dropping the U.S. changes the mix considerably.
The third world countries want to protect their national sovereignty. Silencing criticism in the 53 member Human Rights Commission, will protect dictatorships. [The Cuban president voiced recently that they have won the war over the U.S. without going to war.] Jeane said that two thirds of the world's nations are poor and under developed. They don't enjoy basic rights. The Human Rights Commission is echoing the Economic and Social Council in their latest action.
The U.S. combined with the European Union to gain more staying power and the group within it nominates people for permanent members in the various Commissions. [Editor's note: President Bush refused to consider the Kyoto Treaty when Chancelor Schroeder visited in Washington. 'Not nominating the U.S.' is most likely their answer to this rejection. The French prime minister said recently on C-Span that he regretted this choice. The E.U. is also not in favor of re-visiting president Reagan's star wars. June 8. 2001- Tampa Tribune: "U.S. Secretary of Defense Donald Rumsfeld said the Antiballistic Missile Treaty the United States signed in 1972 (with Russia) may have to be scraped, despite worries of sparking a new arms race. "The course they are choosing will precipitate an international political crisis regarding the ABM treaty sooner than is necessary, given the very immature status of the technology," said Daryl Kimball, executive director of the Coalition to Reduce Nuclear Dangers, a nonprofit group. Tonight on the News (6.8.2001) the pyramid was unveiled in England which has been an American secret according to English people who live around it, and is to be used to create the shield from missiles. The people over there do not want to become a target and are up in arms about it.
The Carnegie Endowment for Peace is having a conference today (6.8.2001) about the upcoming summit meeting between Presidents Bush and Putin. There is talk about Russia joining the European Union, but what people don't realize is that the countries who join have to agree to 80,000 statutes and integrate into NATO. There will be a significant enlargement of NATO in the near future. The representative from Russia believes that Russia should be included in U.S. decision making and get a new treaty. He said that there is great pressure from Russia to join up with China. The U.S. is having strained relations with China and is about to do the same with Russia. He said if the U.S. mishandles this situation, there will be consequences and the U.S. basically becomes responsible for throwing Russia back into Communism."]
Kirkpatrick said that the five permanent members of the United Nations Security Council had a right to serve on any Committee and is comprised of the U.S., Russia, China, E.U. and Africa. Each country gets one vote. She went back to 1994 when the U.S. was barred from the committee on the state of women. In 1986 the U.N. tried to get the U.S. barred from the financial committee. In statistical analysis the first time 1986 : finances, 1994: women and 2001: human rights. The U.S. had three seats. Usually 300 are nominated and the U.S. did not get as many votes as other countries. 52 out of 53 voted. Jeanne is asking: "Why not?" Her final conclusion was that the United States forgot basic principles of politics: "one hand washes the other". Until the leadership of the U.S. gains mutual respect it has lost it's effectiveness to initiatives in human rights. -
From our perspective, watching the African Secretary Kofi Annan, leader of the United Nations, he is anti U.S. because the Congress still has not paid their dues as promised. In a conversation recently about moving Capitalism throughout the rest of the world and that Capitalism requires a Christian attitude of "integrity", Aman answered to the effect that Christianity does not back up what they preach when they allow the poverty and disease to remain in Third World countries. He showed disdain.
Even though there has been emphasis on re-enforcement along the Mexican border, we believe there will be a major change there shortly. CNN on June 4, 2001 reported that the balance of power has shifted. Businesses have moved to Asia [Reports from England are similar. Only half the population voted, a drop from the high 80s to the mid 50s]. The report continued: Mexico has educated a young workforce, ready to take jobs across the border. Open borders is part of the NAFTA agreement. Fox News, O'Reilly, on the same day said that the border is a disaster. California has spent $4 billion on social services to illegal immigrants and Texas $1 billion. The biggest problem are $10 billion in narcotics that come across the border and are sold in the U.S.
Stephen Moore from the Cato Institute stated that the U.S. should let Mexicans come in legally. First O'Reilly was opposed to the poorest people coming in, bankrupting our people and that we can't support the whole country of Mexico and then O'Reilly said: "I'm not disagreeing on that," probably addressing another area but the effect was that O'Reilly first identified with the thinking of many U.S. citizens and then moved them into agreement with the representative of the Cato Institute. U.S. citizens are being conditioned to accept the inevitable where Mexico is concerned.
To open our hearts to the immigrants, The Tampa Tribune, June 8, 2001, stated: "Rawa sat on a cot in her underwear, covered modestly by a thin blanket, and explained why she and her family fled Iraq for the United States and ended up in an immigration detention center in Mexico." Rawa sold everything to pay $30,000 to an Iraqi smuggler who told them Mexico was the best way to reach the U.S., then abandoned them in the Mexico City airport. Mexico has become the world's waiting room for illegal immigrants hoping to sneak into America. Mexico deported 152,000 last year who wanted to come to the U.S. Another 28,000 crossed into the U.S. Apparently the United Nations gets involved in this problem and grants refugee status which allows them to stay in the country they flee to and they can seek naturalization after five years. The U.S. picks up the costs for deportation to their homeland. Mexico can't afford it. Mexico, U.S. want to end fatal migrant border trips. 600 undocumented immigrants have died since 1998, was another headline today.
U.S. citizens are being told that they are the wealthiest economy but that is questionable. The Tampa Tribune announced a $6 trillion dollar debt that American society has incurred which is the reason for the slowdown and job cuts. We stated in the last issue, Germany has most of the market share in agricultural products, over 80% and China has most of the rest (revealed during Congressional hearings). U.S. exports are dismal. President Bush would like to either retreat from the world arena or cut a new path and become pre-eminent. It looks like he is doing both. By starting his own agenda which is out of agreement with the rest of the world, he could achieve either of those. His attitude is, "you created the problem, you fix it." He is obviously catering to the Catholic Church unpopular in Europe, most Germans are Protestants. These sudden confusing changes could point to the correctness of the book "Babylon the Great is Falling" but the Bible points in another direction.
"After eight years during which foreign policy success was largely measured by the number of treaties the president could sign and the number of summits he could attend, we now have an administration willing to assert American national interests.. The new unilateralism seeks to enhance American power and unashamedly deploy it on behalf of self-defined global ends. .. nations.. now pronounce themselves distressed at the arrogance of the U.S. for refusing, at the height of it's power, to play the docile international citizen." (The Tampa Tribune, 6.8.01)
Getting nuked is always a possibility since these weapons are being built in many countries and by judging president Bush's new strategy, it is expected to happen one of these days. The U.S. is going on the defensive rather than offensive. The large budget / tax cut are a sign of restraint in military spending that will or should slow down military involvement in other countries. President Bush wants NATO to take the lead in solving their problems.
There is a move for independence under way in spite of wishful thinking of globalists, which raises a red flag to the book "Babylon The Great Is Falling." Another red flag will come from researching what the Bible has to say. Revelation is written in symbolic manner to keep the truth hidden from those who would undermine it. Much has been written about it and one book contradicts the next. Satan uses whatever he can to confuse us.
Antichrist is a concept just like Babylon. When Scripture states there are many Antichrists that means the meaning is general as well as specific. Babylon can be interpreted three ways also. It is a movement, a country, and the "Woman on the Beast". Because the meanings are veiled, Satan can use these areas to the hilt. We mean this in a general sense within society.
Bible students know that the personage of Antichrist, who will sit in the Temple in Jerusalem, is described to be an Assyrian.
"Open thy doors, O Lebanon, that the fire may devour thy cedars. Howl, fir tree; for the cedar is fallen; because the mighty are spoiled: howl, O ye oaks of Bashan; for the forest of the vintage is come down. There is a voice of the howling of the shepherds; for their glory is spoiled; a voice of the roaring of young lions; for pride of Jordan is spoiled. Thus saith the Lord my God; Feed the flock of the slaughter; Whose possessors slay them, and hold themselves not guilty: and they that sell them say, Blessed be the Lord; for I am rich: and their own shepherds pity them not.
"For I will no more pity the inhabitants of the land, saith the Lord: but , lo, I will deliver the men every one into his neighbor's hand, and into the hand of his king: and they shall smite the land, and out of their hand I will not deliver them. And I will feed the flock of slaughter, even you, O poor of the flock. And I took unto me two staves; the one I called Beauty, and the other I called Bands; and I fed the flock. Three shepherds also I cut off in one month; and my soul loathed them, and their soul also abhorred me. Then said I, I will not feed you: that that dieth, let it die; and that that is to be cut off, let it be cut off; and let the rest eat every one the flesh of another.
"And I took my staff, even Beauty, and cut it asunder, that I might break my covenant which I had made with all the people. And it was broken in that day: and so the poor of the flock that waited upon me know that it was the word of the Lord. And I said unto them, If ye think good, give me my price; and if not, forbear. So they weighed for my price thirty pieces of silver. And the Lord said unto me, Cast it unto the potter: a goodly price that I was prised at of them. And I took the thirty pieces of silver, and cast them to the potter in the house of the Lord.
"Then I cut asunder mine other staff, even Bands, that I might break the brotherhood between Judah and Israel. And the Lord said unto me, Take unto thee yet the instruments of a foolish shepherd. For, lo, I will raise up a shepherd in the land, which shall not visit those that be cut off, neither shall seek the young one, nor heal that that is broken, nor feed that that standeth still: but he shall eat the flesh of the fat, and tear their claws in pieces. Woe to the idol shepherd that leaveth the flock! the sword shall be upon his arm, and upon his right eye: his arm shall be clean dried up, and his right eye shall be utterly darkened. (Zechariah 11) "... Behold, I will make Jerusalem a cup of trembling unto all the people round about, when they shall be in siege both against Judah and against Jerusalem.. (Zechariah 12:2)
Zechariah looks at the coming King of Zion, the Messiah. It begins with Christ and moves into the 70th weeks of Daniel 9:24-27. Israel will no longer rely on military power ("cut off the chariot," s. 10, 15,16) but on the "Prince of Peace" (Isa 9:6), who will exercise worldwide dominion ("from sea even to sea.." v. 10)
Anti-christ is described in this Scripture as the shepherd who leaves his flock, an idol shepherd and he shall be wounded upon his arm and his right eye. An "idol" shepherd is described in John 10:12,13 by Jesus himself as a hireling, and not the shepherd, whose own the sheep are not, seeth the wolf coming, and leaveth the sheep, and fleeth: and the wolf catcheth them, and scattereth the sheep.. because a hireling careth not for the sheep.
"Now gather thyself in troops, O daughter of troops: he hath laid siege against us: they shall smite the judge of Israel with a rod upon the cheek. But thou, Bethlehem Ephratah though thou be little among the thousands of Judah, yet out of thee shall come forth unto me that is to be ruler in Israel; whose going forth have been from of old, from everlasting.
"Therefore will he give them up, unto the time that she which travaileth hath brought forth: then the remnant of his brethren shall return unto the children of Israel. And he shall stand and feed in the strength of the Lord, in the majesty of the name of the Lord his God; and they shall abide: for now shall he be great unto the ends of the earth. And this man shall be the peace, when the Assyrian shall come into our land: when he shall tread in our palaces, then shall we raise against him seven shepherds, and eight principal men. And they shall waste the land of Assyria with the sword, and the land of Nimrod in the entrances thereof: thus shall he deliver us from the Assyrian, when he cometh into our land, and when he treadeth within our borders.
"And the remnant of Jacob shall be in the midst of many people as a dew from the Lord, as the showers upon the grass, that tarrieth not for man, nor waiteth for the sons of men." (Micah 5:1-7) Micah 5:4,5 describes the Anti-christ as the Assyrian who represents Israel's enemy during the Tribulation, much as the "king of the north" and the "king of the south" take on eschatological meanings, corresponding to the fact that they are actual historical figures. Daniel 11:1-20 describes these kings as succeeding rulers of the Ptolemaic and Seleucid dynasties, founded by two of Alexander the Great's sons.
In Revelation God is angry with all the idol worship. Alexander the Great was a king mentioned in the Bible when they were worshiping other gods. "A French archaeologist, diving on the ruins of Herakleion, illuminates a statue of Hapi, god of the Nile flood. Divers pull treasures from sunken Egyptian city of Herakleion... on the same barge were three gigantic statues - one of Hapi, god of the Nile flood, and the others of a pharaoh and his queen.. The team has been working since then at a site about four miles out to sea. Temples, foundations and 10 sunken boats are among discoveries.. The Great Library at Alexandria, founded about 295 B.C. and destroyed under mysterious circumstances sometime in the first century B.C. Alexandria was founded by Alexander the Great in 331 B.C., who put to use its three large bays. The temple had been dedicated to Hercules. (The Tampa Tribune, 6.8.2001)
The reason we don't agree with the scenereo that the U.S. is the Babylon mentioned in Revelation is the fact that it has allowed itself to be become dependent on Opec. The U.S. went through a crisis in the early 1970s which was a warning not well heeded. Oil from the Mid East was curtailed which left the U.S. population rushing to buy vehicles with lower fuel consumption. Hopefully Congress will do more this time around. The price of oil is not the critical issue but control over the U.S. economy and defense is.
We have pondered over the Scriptures "Babylon has fallen". "And after these things I saw another angel come down from heaven, having great power; and the earth was lightened with his glory. And he cried mightily with a strong voice, saying, Babylon the great is fallen, is fallen, and is become the habitation of devils, and the hold of every foul spirit, and a cage of every unclean and hateful bird. For all nations have drunk of the wine of the wrath of her fornication, and the kings of the earth have committed fornication with her, and the merchants of the earth are waxed rich through the abundance of her delicacies." References are: Isa 13:19; 21:9; Jere. 51:8; Rev. 14:8. "And Babylon, the glory of kingdoms, the beauty of the Chaldees' excellency, shall be as when God overthrew Sodom and Gomorrah." (13:19) "And, behold, here cometh a chariot of men, with a couple of horsemen.
And he answered and said, Babylon is fallen is fallen, is fallen; and all the graven images of her gods he hath broken unto the ground. (21:9)
In "Judgment against Babylon", "Thus saith the Lord; Behold, I will raise up against Babylon, and against them that dwell in the midst of them that rise up against me, a destroying wind; And will send unto Babylon fanners. that shall fan her, and shall empty her land: for in the day of trouble they shall be against her round about... (Jere 51:1-2) "Thus the slain shall fall in the land of the Chaldeans, and they that are thrust through in her streets. For Israel hath not been forsaken, nor Judah of his God, of the Lord of hosts; though their land was filled with sin against Holy One of Israel. Flee out of the midst of Babylon, and deliver every man his soul: be not cut off in her iniquity: for this is the time of the Lord's vengeance; he will render unto her a recompense. (Jere. 51:4-6)
In Jeremiah we get a clear picture of where Babylon is. It is not the United States but in the land of Chaldeans. "Chaldea is properly the southern most portion of the valley of the Tigris and Euphrates. Sometimes it is extended to include Babylonia and thus comprises all S Mesopotamia, as in the Bible (e.g., Gen. 11:28; Jer. 50:10) The name is derived from the people who invaded the region in the 11th century B.C. and the restored kingdom of Babylonia is sometimes called Chaldean Empire. The study of astrology was much developed in this period, as in Dan. 1:4 and among the Romans. The term is also understood in the Bible to mean Aramaean. (Columbia Encyclopedia, 1959, p. 353)
It all started with Nimrod, the mighty hunter before the Lord. And the beginning of his kingdom was Babel (Gen 10:10).. and the whole earth was of one language and of one speech. (Gen 11:1) And they said, Go to, let us build a city and a tower, whose top may reach unto heaven.. And the Lord came down to see.. Behold, the people is one, and they have one language; and this day they begin to do: and now nothing will be restrained from them, which they have imagined to do.." (Gen, 11:5,6) The Tower of Babel is likened to a ziggurat, an ancient Mesopotamian temple tower consisting of a lofty pyramidal structure built in successive stages with outside staircases and a shrine on top. It is still the most popular symbol in the world for success.
The compass and square were used to develop astrology. The emblems represent the Masonic Order which is world wide. The "golden cup in her hand full of abominations and filthiness of her fornication.." "with whom the kings of the earth have committed fornication, and the inhabitants of the earth have been made drunk with the wine of her fornication.." Many kings, leaders, presidents, prime ministers had their own astrologers and follow their advice and today astrology is a generally accepted practice. The power of positive thinking is an offspring of astrology. Basically that is what astrology is. The magi foretells the future and the listener believes it and focuses on it and it comes to pass in many instances because he or she puts all their energy there and gets help from the negative side of the spirit world. Looking at Hitler who used astrology, the end results are not necessarily what the listener expected. After all, Satan is a liar.
Just as in Noah's and Sodom Gomorrha's days we read much later in Jeremiah 51:8 "Babylon is suddenly fallen and destroyed: howl for her; take balm for her pain, if so be she may be healed." Rev. 14:8 "And there followed another angel (during the Tribulation), saying Babylon is fallen, is fallen, that great city, because she made all nations drink of the wine of the wrath of her fornication."
From Patriot To Priest Jack D. Hook
The five years I spent in the United States Army, back during the Vietnam era, are still a large part of my life today. The memories of friends and experiences, especially the year spent in Vietnam, seem like they occurred yesterday. I was born and raised to be a patriot. Webster defines a patriot as: "A person who loves, supports, and defends his country and its interests." Can someone who is born again into the Kingdom of God still remain a patriot? Obviously, our Lord commands us to love all people as He does. I don't think loving people is what Webster is referring to. Can a born again person still fight and kill to defend the country and its interests? Jesus said, "My kingdom is not of this world. If my kingdom were of this world, then would my servants fight....pick up your cross and follow me." John wrote in Revelation 5:10, "and hast made us unto our God Kings and priests, and we shall reign on the earth." The answer to my questions seems pretty simple and obvious, doesn't it ? Jesus Christ is coming soon and we are all to be ready, without spot or wrinkle!

Excerpt from the book "Babylon The Great Is Falling":
Presidency and Papacy
Few Bible teachers hold to the teaching that the two beasts of Revelation 13 are the political and religious leaders of the modern day Roman Empire, which consists of 11 nations. These two men lead what is called the "woman and the beast." Revelation 17:7, 9, 10, 18 reveal the home of both men as the Roman Empire. Remember that Babylon and Rome are synonymous. The Spirit of God asks you, "what are the most powerful political and religious offices in the West today?"
By letting the Spirit show us the description of the harlot in Revelation 17, it is revealed that the worldly "Christian" church of Western Europe and America will be where this religious leader originates from. The beast, the American government and its leader, is dressed in scarlet as is the woman, meaning they look alike, speak alike, use each other, but the real power remains in the beast. In other words, the government and the church of 11 western nations will be preaching and promoting the same message - worldly peace, prosperity, and unity.
This harlot will consist of the majority of people found in the 7 churches of Revelation 2 and 3, who refuse to repent and walk in the Spirit, but chose the ways of the world. These 7 churches and their leaders are held in the Lord's right hand, (Revelation 1:20). These are not cults, but mainline churchgoers who are being deceived by the spirit of antichrist. All of them have confessions and statements of faith posted on the walls and in their books of discipline. But they have tragically not embraced and confessed these statements of truth in their hearts. If they do not repent they will ultimately deny Jesus Christ Himself.
These people are following impure teachings, while the truth hangs on the wall. The doctrines of Balaam and Nicolaitans (Rev. 2, 3) which these people hold to are designed to make Christians earthly and worldly in mind and heart. The sad thing about this is that they believe and do these things in the name of Jesus. What blasphemy! To these people the return of Jesus Christ is a vague reality, to some even a threat to their ministry. That is why the Lord's return is not a major doctrine and foundation of their ministry. They are not looking and longing for Jesus to come that He might rule the nations and set up His Kingdom. If we are not looking we are lost! Jesus will rapture those who look for Him, not those who look to the world's system.
These darkened Christians are walking in the flesh which Paul said would bring death, (Romans 8:13). Please study II Timothy 2:19-21 and I Peter 4:17-18 together. The rapture is the judgment of the visible house of God. They who willfully choose the ways of the world and walk in them, will find themselves on the earth after the rapture. They denied or refused to acknowledge the power of the Holy Spirit to free them from the lust and desire for this world. We are all born with this love for the world and self in our hearts and need to be delivered from this to be saved.
The religious and political beasts or men will come as "angels of light" just as Paul said. They will come on the scene and even now are on the scene, as ministers of Christ, apostles of Christ, (II Corinthians 11:13-15). Satan must disguise himself by putting on a mask. For if people saw his real face they would not follow him.
What we are observing today with so many saying they're "born again," is very deceiving. I wish it were true, but Jesus said few would enter in prior to the 70th Week. Jesus said that the proof of one's being born of the Holy Spirit is the ability to see and understand the Kingdom of God. Most people who claim to be born again are not interested in the literal coming of Jesus Christ. For many, His return would upset their plans. That's not seeing and understanding the Kingdom of God. Read John 1:51 and John 3:53 together.
Jesus said it is possible to say with our lips that we love Him, to say He's the Christ, but actually deny Him and His word, (Matthew 15:7-9, 24:4-5, I John 1:6, 2:9). By our fruit we are known. We must be able to hear the voice and discern the Lamb from the dragon. Are the "Presidency" and "Papacy" being groomed by the spirit of antichrist to rule the world and to fight the Lord Jesus at His coming to the earth, (Revelation 19:19)? Will whoever sits in those positions after the rapture be revealed as the two beasts of Revelation 13?
Blow the Siren
Every nation and government will come under the wrath of God, for all nations will agree to be governed by the antichrist, (Isaiah 34:1-2, Revelation 13:7). They will joyfully submit themselves to him. Contrary to public opinion America cannot escape the wrath of God. As we studied in Chapter 5, the land of America will be left desolate and barren as a reminder of God's hate of Babylonianism. For her sins have reached Heaven, just as those of Sodom and Gomorrah's.
We must warn people in and out of the church to repent, to trust in the shed blood of Jesus, and to receive the Holy Spirit to save us from sin. As in Ezekiel 33, we must also sound the trumpet, blow the siren. People who misunderstand and are blinded by antichrist, who for blind patriotic reasons or for fear of persecution are going to perish in their blindness. They are believing a lie. Only the Lord's physical return to this earth can bring peace to this war-torn planet.
Revelation 18:4 commands Jews and Gentiles alike, who have trusted Jesus to "come out." We can "come out" spiritually now before the rapture or "physically" after the rapture when the President stands in the temple, in Jerusalem, and says he is the Christ. God commands us to declare and publish, to conceal not, His word concerning Babylon, according to Jeremiah 50:2. That is what this book is designed to do.
Remember, the Little Horn, the Beast of the Sea, and Babylon the Great are all the same nation which will produce the political antichrist!
We have three tapes which address the Assyrian Connection:
- Jerusalem, The Cup of Trembling
- Assyrian Antichrist To Come
- Jerusalem & Assyrian
