The Mystery Babylon of Today
The Mystery Babylon described in the Book of Revelation is already here. We don't have to wait until the start of the Tribulation before it suddenly appears. I would like to describe some observations that I have about the Mystery Babylon that I believe exists today:
Revelation 17:1-2. And there came one of the seven angels which had the seven vials, and talked with me, saying unto me, Come hither; I will show unto thee the judgment of the great whore that sitteth upon many waters: 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.
Mystery Babylon (MB) sits upon many waters: the waters are the nations of the world. MB greatly influences them by the many sinful ideas that it expounds upon through it's media, it's parliament or legislature, it's universities and it's agencies. It influences the nations of the world because of it's great military presence in the world. The nations will think twice before they want to engage it in military confrontations.
MB greatly influences the nations of the world because of it's extremely powerful economy. Those that comply with the ideals of MB will receive grants of money and military equipment and training.
MB greatly influences the various presidents of the world to enact their own legislation that corresponds with the legislation of MB. If MB passes a sinful law, many of the nations of the world will enact similar legislation.
MB continues in a downward spiral concerning Christianity. At one time, this was a Christian nation; leaders of this country at one time would publicly state that God should be served. Many of its people were openly Christian. Today, Christianity is continually downgraded by MB. Laws are being passed that contradict Christian principles. It stresses freedom of the individual to do anything they want to do including blaspheming God and His Holy Bible. It puts emphasis on sexual immorality: just about any sexual sin is okay. The name of God is continually used as a sware word including the name of God the Father and Jesus Christ.
Here are some observations regarding the Mystery Babylon of today:
The downward spiral of Mystery Babylon could be stopped and even reversed. The Christian holds the key to returning MB to being a faithful Christian nation. Mystery Babylon could turn around immediately and be blessed by God if Christians would obey the following scripture:
2 Chronicles 7:14 If My people, who are called by My name, shall humble themselves, and pray, and seek My face, and turn from their wicked ways; then will I hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin, and will heal their land.
Are there some Christians that obey the verse in 2 Chronicles? It is my prayer that many will humble themselves before God, stop sinning, pray and follow Him .
