According to the Scriptures"Moreover, brethren, I declare unto you the gospel... By which also ye are saved... unless ye have believed in vain. For I delivered unto you first of all that which I also received, how that Christ died for our sins according to the scriptures; And that he was buried, and that he rose again the third day according to the scriptures" (1 Corinthians 15:1-4)

Babylon the Great

Did you know that the Bible predicts a one world government in the last days? Concerning the global world ruler it says that “power was given him over ALL kindreds, and tongues, and nations.” (Revelation 13:7) Kinda sounds global eh? And what do they do to enforce their global control? “And he causeth ALL, both small and great, rich and poor, free and bond, to receive a mark in their right hand, or in their foreheads: And that NO MAN might buy or sell, save he that had the mark” (Revelation 13:16-17) Kinda sounds global eh? Can't buy or sell without a mark. Does that sound familiar?

Today we can see the system being put in place to control the whole world and they are using a global “pandemic” narrative to bring it to pass. Every nation around the world have brought in or are trying to bring in a universal digital passport that will control the masses on where they can go and what they can buy or sell. It will contain your ID, your health records, and without it, you will not be able to function in society. This will be a total medical dictatorship. As former World Health Organization worker and current B.C. health officer, Bonnie Henry said, without the injection you will not be able to, “participate in the social and economic life of our community”. And so, “Individuals will be required to show proof of vaccination alongside valid government ID.” (https://www.castanet.net/news/BC/343630/Proof-of-vaccination-will-be-required-to-access-many-settings-by-September-13)

And don't kid yourself, the plans are already in place to do away with cash and tie this “vaccine passport” to a global digital currency.(https://ca.movies.yahoo.com/bank-of-america-brian-moynihan-cashless-society-210717673.html)

Did you know the Bible predicts that the global center for the New World Order will be in the rebuilt city of ancient Babylon? Ancient Babylon was located in what has been famously been called “The Cradle of Civilization”. This was in the Mesopotamian Valley between the Tigris and Euphrates Rivers, also called the “Land of Shinar”, which is today situated in modern day Iraq. The city was originally built in rebellion against the Lord and was to be the commercial, religious center of the world's population at that time. This was headed up by another antichrist called Nimrod. He taught the citizens of his kingdom to revolt against the authority of God. He was called “a mighty one in the earth” (Genesis 10:8), and we are told, “the beginning of his kingdom was Babel” (Genesis 10:10).

At that time we are told, “the whole earth was of one language, and of one speech.” (Genesis 11:1). God said to Noah and his sons, be “fruitful, and multiply; bring forth abundantly in the earth, and multiply therein.” (Genesis 9:1, 7) But what did that early population of the world do? They said, “let us build us a city and a tower, whose top may reach unto heaven; and let us make us a name, lest we be scattered abroad upon the face of the whole earth.” (Genesis 11:4) Rather than giving glory to the Name of the Lord, they said, “let us make us a name”, and they would make their own connection to heaven with their newly formed religion, and pyramid shaped temple dedicated to the “heavens”. In a word, they began to worship the host of heaven and the creation, more than the Creator (Romans 1:21-23, 25).

The Lords will was for them to multiply and fill the earth, but they rebelled against the Lord and chose to stay in one place. The glue that would unite and keep them together was to build a city and a tower dedicated unto the heavens. This was the beginnings of a new political, religious system united against God, but it was short lived, as God came down, confused their language and scattered them abroad over the face of all the earth (Genesis 11:5-8, 9).

This is how the nations were formed. These rebels were “divided in their lands; every one after his tongue, after their families, in their nations.” (Genesis 10:5) But let us not forget, that these rebels brought with them their newly formed political, religious philosophy around the world, so that, even a 1000 years later we read, “every nation made gods of their own, and put them in the houses [temples] of the high places… every nation in their cities wherein they dwelt.” (2 Kings 17:29) This is why you see ancient civilizations around the world, that reflect this same religion with their pyramids or ziggurats at the heart of their great cities.

Now there have been attempts to rebuild Babylon to its former glory. Nebuchadnezzar, revived Babylon around 600 BC to become the center of the great Babylonian Empire in “the land of Shinar” (Daniel 1:1-2), with a pyramid, along with its hanging gardens, that was known as one of the Seven Wonders of ancient civilization, but that too soon vanished away.

In more recent times, in the 1990's, Saddam Hussein, who saw himself as the reincarnation of Nebuchadnezzar, began to rebuild Babylon. However, that was brought to a screeching halt with the Gulf War. But did you know, that there are now global efforts to once again bring the ancient land of Babylon back to a prominent role in the Middle East?

In just this past weekend (August 28, 2021) there has been a gathering of “international” and  “key regional officials and leaders” to a summit in Bagdad where they have announced “great hopes for the return of Iraq's historical role in the region”. (https://www.jpost.com/middle-east/baghdad-conference-seen-as-regional-turning-point-677951)

One might ask, why is this significant? The Bible tells us, the old Babylonish commercial/religious system, which is called by God “wickedness”, would be revived in the last days. “To build it an house in the land of Shinar: and it shall be established, and set there upon her own base.” (Zechariah 5:6-9, 10-11). It would appear, that this has been Satan's ancient demonically inspired scheme to set up his rule over all the earth, and he will do it through a demonically possessed man called the Antichrist and the Beast.

The Bible tells us that the city of Babylon will be the commercial capital of the world's commerce and trade. In the Book of the Revelation, it says, “the merchants of the earth are waxed rich through the abundance of her delicacies” (Revelation 18:3). It says, “every shipmaster, and all the company in ships, and sailors, and as many as trade by sea”, and “that great city, wherein were made rich all that had ships in the sea by reason of her costliness!” (Revelation 18:17-19)

If we are indeed living in the last days, should we not see some movement in that direction? Did you know that they are now building that deep water port in the ancient geographical location of the Babylonian Empire to accommodate “the merchants of the earth” and all who “trade by sea” and “all that had ships” and “every shipmaster”? (https://www.maritime-executive.com/article/construction-contract-signed-for-iraq-s-new-deep-water-port)

Did you know that this is the largest port construction project in the world, able to support 25 million shipping containers, which will support Antichrist's lavish global city center. Just for perspective, did you know there are only around 17 million shipping containers globally in circulation? Did you know that the port in Shanghi China can only support 2.2 million 20 foot containers? Did you know that the new port at the mouth of the Euphrates river has already broken records for the longest breakwater, nine miles long? (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Lj4wn_4YWb8)

Although it is in the Arabic language, please watch this brief documentary on this Mega Project and the plans for this Grand Port that is quite fitting for the center of Antichrist's global kingdom.(https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-fR3rcb3Xa4)

They have big plans for the future: (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_gbtlpHuZWM)
(https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QWO6pD1M3cQ)

Did you know that in the last days, the Antichrist will have a sidekick called the “False Prophet”, who will be the leader of the New World Religion. Did you know that there is a religious leaders who is a globalist who is now expressing great interest in the area?(https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uQhe4e3UMEE)

And let's not forget, that there has been a move for some time now by the globalists to make ancient Babylon the center of world interest, as it was recently designated as a World Heritage Site by the United Nations UNESCO:(https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Ul4faGcAY4Q)

Now you might be thinking, why should this be of interest to me? Well if you are a Bible believer or not, it is very significant because the Bible tells us that there would be certain events that must come to pass as we approach the Second Coming of Jesus Christ, just as the Bible foretold of certain events that would take place at His First Coming (https://www.accordingtothescriptures.org/prophecy/353prophecies.html) .

Listen to what Jesus said to the people in His day. “Did ye never read in the scriptures, The stone which the builders rejected, the same is become the head of the corner: this is the Lord's doing, and it is marvelous in our eyes?” (Matthew 21:42) Something marvelous was happening before their very eyes, but sadly, many of the Jews remained spiritually blind and ignorant.

The exact day was foretold by the prophets (Daniel 9:24-27, Zechariah 9:9), that their Messiah and King would come to them. That was on Palm Sunday AD 32. However, He wept over Jerusalem because they knew “not the time of thy visitation” (Luke 19:44). He said, “If thou hadst known, even thou, at least in THIS THY DAY, the things which belong unto thy peace! but now they are hid from thine eyes.” (Luke 19:42)

Jesus said, “And in them is fulfilled the prophecy of Esaias, which saith, By hearing ye shall hear, and shall not understand; and seeing ye shall see, and shall not perceive:  For this people's heart is waxed gross, and their ears are dull of hearing, and their eyes they have closed; lest at any time they should see with their eyes, and hear with their ears, and should understand with their heart, and should be converted, and I should heal them.  But blessed are your eyes, for they see: and your ears, for they hear.  For verily I say unto you, That many prophets and righteous men have desired to see those things which ye see, and have not seen them; and to hear those things which ye hear, and have not heard them. (Matthew 13:14-17)

That day could have been the glorious day for Israel that they were looking for since the Fall of Man in the Garden of Eden. That Day could have been the beginning of the Kingdom of God for Israel, but instead, it became one of their saddest days. God had given unto them the Law and the Prophets, His very Word, the Scriptures (Romans 3:1-2). Of all nations, they should have said, this is The Day that the Lord has made, let us rejoice and be glad in it, for this is Our God.

19  Open to me the gates of righteousness: I will go into them, and I will praise the LORD:
20  This gate of the LORD, into which the righteous shall enter.
21  I will praise thee: for thou hast heard me, and art become my salvation.
22  The stone which the builders refused is become the head stone of the corner.
23  This is the LORD'S doing; it is marvellous in our eyes.
24  This is the day which the LORD hath made; we will rejoice and be glad in it.
25  Save now, I beseech thee, O LORD: O LORD, I beseech thee, send now prosperity.
26  Blessed be he that cometh in the name of the LORD: we have blessed you out of the house of the LORD.
27  God is the LORD, which hath shewed us light: bind the sacrifice with cords, even unto the horns of the altar.
28  Thou art my God, and I will praise thee: thou art my God, I will exalt thee.
29  O give thanks unto the LORD; for he is good: for his mercy endureth for ever. (Psalm 118:19-29).

Jesus alone is the “gate of the LORD”. Jesus said, “I am the door: by me if any man enter in, he shall be saved, and shall go in and out, and find pasture. (John 10:29) He is “The stone” the “Rock of our salvation” (1 Corinthians 10:4). He is the “stone” who would come to smite the kingdoms of this world and set up His glorious everlasting Kingdom (Daniel 2:34-35, 44-45), but they rejected Him.

He came in fulfillment of Zechariah's prophecy, “Rejoice greatly, O daughter of Zion; shout, O daughter of Jerusalem: behold, thy King cometh unto thee: he is just, and having salvation; lowly, and riding upon an ass, and upon a colt the foal of an ass.” (Zechariah 9:9) But because they rejected their King and Savior, the Kingdom of God and His will on earth was postponed. And we all know the story, that was foretold by the prophets and Jesus. Jesus said, “Behold, your house is left unto you desolate: and verily I say unto you, Ye shall not see me, until the time come when ye shall say, Blessed is he that cometh in the name of the Lord.” (Luke 13:35)

What followed was the destruction of Jerusalem and their Temple as predicted by the prophet Daniel and Jesus (Daniel 9:26, Matthew 24:1-2), and the great Diaspora as Jesus predicted. “And they shall fall by the edge of the sword, and shall be led away captive into all nations: and Jerusalem shall be trodden down of the Gentiles, until the times of the Gentiles be fulfilled.” (Luke 21:24)

Jesus said, “The Son of man indeed goeth, as it is written of him” (Mark 14:21). He told His disciples before it came to pass, “all things that are written by the prophets concerning the Son of man shall be accomplished.” (Luke 18:31). Even after His death and resurrection, they still did not believe. He said to two of them, “O fools, and slow of heart to believe all that the prophets have spoken: Ought not Christ to have suffered these things, and to enter into his glory? And beginning at Moses and all the prophets, he expounded unto them in all the scriptures the things concerning himself.” (Luke 24:25-27)

He then appeared to the eleven apostles and said, “These are the words which I spake unto you, while I was yet with you, that all things must be fulfilled, which were written in the law of Moses, and in the prophets, and in the psalms, concerning me.  Then opened he their understanding, that they might understand the scriptures,  And said unto them, Thus it is written, and thus it behoved Christ to suffer, and to rise from the dead the third day: And that repentance and remission of sins should be preached in his name among all nations, beginning at Jerusalem.” (Luke 24:44-47)

Peter eventually came around and said concerning the first coming of Christ, “Of which salvation the prophets have enquired and searched diligently, who prophesied of the grace that should come unto you:  Searching what, or what manner of time the Spirit of Christ which was in them did signify, when it testified beforehand the sufferings of Christ, and the glory that should follow. Unto whom it was revealed, that not unto themselves, but unto us they did minister the things, which are now reported unto you by them that have preached the gospel unto you with the Holy Ghost sent down from heaven; which things the angels desire to look into.” (1 Peter 1:10-12)

And again, Peter said, “For we have not followed cunningly devised fables, when we made known unto you the power and coming of our Lord Jesus Christ, but were eyewitnesses of his majesty… We have also a more sure word of prophecy; whereunto ye do well that ye take heed, as unto a light that shineth in a dark place, until the day dawn, and the day star arise in your hearts:  Knowing this first, that no prophecy of the scripture is of any private interpretation.  For the prophecy came not in old time by the will of man: but holy men of God spake as they were moved by the Holy Ghost. (2 Peter 1:16, 19-21)

Now I have said all this, to say this. That Just as God spoke very specifically and in intricate detail about the First Coming of Christ, so too, He has spoken very clearly about the “last days” through His apostles and prophets. This “last days” rebellion is no different than that which took place in the beginning of Nimrod's Baylonish world empire. Psalm 2 says,  “Why do the heathen rage, and the people imagine a vain thing? The kings of the earth set themselves, and the rulers take counsel together, against the LORD, and against his anointed, saying, Let us break their bands asunder, and cast away their cords from us.” (Psalm 2:1-3)

It is a vain attempt to oust the Lord from the world He created. This global New World Order wants to break anything that ties or binds us to our Judeo Christian heritage. It will be like the days of Noah, when they corrupted “His way upon the earth” (Genesis 6:12, Matthew 24:37). This revived Babylonish world system seeks to do just that, to build a global kingdom here on earth that is void of God, and they are NOW preparing for that global center in the ancient land of Babylon. The evil men and deceivers who are behind this satanic movement do not like the Judeo Christian foundations that the West was founded on and are working hard to destroy that and bring in a global communistic, social credit score system whose center will be the ancient city of Babylon rebuilt.

Let us conclude by saying this. Do you know that the Bible tells us that we can know that the Second Coming of Christ “is near, even at the doors” (Matthew 24:33)? Do you know the Bible tells us we can “see the day approaching” (Hebrews 10:25). Do you know that Jesus said, “when these things begin to come to pass, then look up, and lift up your heads; for your redemption draweth nigh… So likewise ye, when ye see these things come to pass, know ye that the kingdom of God is nigh at hand.  Verily I say unto you, This generation shall not pass away, till all be fulfilled.” (Luke 21:28, 29-32)

Just like the Bible foretold of all that would come to pass at the First Coming of Christ, so too, the Bible is quite clear concerning His Second Coming. Jesus asked the people of His day, “can ye not discern the signs of the times?” (Matthew 16:3) We can certainly ask the same today. Might the Lord give us the eyes to see all those things that the prophets have foretold.

These are exciting times to be watching the stage being set for our Lord's SOON Coming to redeem His people and restore His Kingdom which shall NEVER fade away. “Repent ye therefore, and be converted, that your sins may be blotted out, when the times of refreshing shall come from the presence of the Lord;  And he shall send Jesus Christ, which before was preached unto you:  Whom the heaven must receive until the times of restitution of all things, which God hath spoken by the mouth of all his holy prophets since the world began.” (Acts 3:19-21)

“And they said one to another, Did not our heart burn within us, while he talked with us by the way, and while he opened to us the scriptures?...  Then opened he their understanding, that they might understand the scriptures” (Luke 24:32, 45).

“But blessed are your eyes, for they see: and your ears, for they hear. For verily I say unto you, That many prophets and righteous men have desired to see those things which ye see, and have not seen them; and to hear those things which ye hear, and have not heard them.” (Matthew 13:16-17).

Hallelujah
