SYSTEM WILL FALL IN JUDGMENT
Fallen is Babylon the Great!’ She has
become a dwelling for demons and a haunt for every impure spirit, a haunt for
every unclean bird, a haunt for every unclean and detestable animal. For all the nations have drunk the maddening
wine of her adulteries. The kings of the
earth committed adultery with her, and the merchants of the earth grew rich from
her excessive luxuries.” —Revelation 18:2-3
drawn to the center of the world’s power system because of the love of money,
the love of power and the love of pleasure.
This system is headed up by the “god of this age” (II Corinthians 4:4)
and is a demonic haven. All the nations
of the world are affected and infected with this ungodly life-style.
people are called out of this system before the central power is judged by
God. God has knows the sinful crimes
that have been committed and now He is moving to judge. This judgment will come in the form of death,
mourning, famine and be consumed by fire (4-8).
leaders of the earth that had illicit activity with this worldly power center
will mourn over the judgment and be terrified at it. The judgment will happen quickly. The merchants of the earth mourn because this
power centers vast array of worldly goods that are no longer available. These merchants had gained their wealth
through this worldly power center which was now in ruin (9-17).
captain, and all who travel by ship, the sailors, and all who earn their living
from the sea, will stand far off. When they see the smoke of her burning, they
will exclaim, ‘Was there ever a city like this great city?’ They will throw dust
on their heads, and with weeping and mourning cry out: ‘Woe! Woe to you, great
city, where all who had ships on the sea became rich through her wealth! In one hour she has been brought to ruin!’”
“Rejoice over her, you heavens!
Rejoice, you people of God!
Rejoice, apostles and prophets!
For God has judged her with the judgment she imposed on you” (20). Those who love God are going to rejoice
because of this judgment because He is giving this system what it deserves. It had led people astray, was responsible for
killing the prophets, and was responsible for killing all God’s people and for
all who have been slaughtered on the earth.
“It is mine to avenge; I will repay,” says the Lord. In Revelation 6:9-11 we read “And when the
Lamb opened the fifth seal, I saw under the altar the souls of those who had
been slain for the word of God and for the testimony they had upheld. And they
cried out in a loud voice, “How long, O Lord, holy and true, until You judge
those who live on the earth and avenge our blood?” Then each of them was given a white robe and
told to rest a little while longer, until the full number of their fellow
servants, their brothers, were killed, just as they had been killed.” Well now the time has come. The time will come. It is coming. He will set all things right.
Dear Father I am grateful to know that all things well be
set right according to Your purposes and nobody is getting away with anything
even though they may think they are. May
I be about Your business and be and do what You desire as I run this race you
have laid out for me. May I run in the
power of Your Holy Spirit and in the authority of Jesus. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NU6vl1fW6WU&list=UUf1NPIFOBwzTLVQiEDnq4Cw&index=10
