Babylon is Fallen, is Fallen

“…Babylon is fallen, is fallen, that great city, because she made all nations drink of the wine of the wrath of her fornication.” -Revelation 14:8 How close are we to the complete fulfillment of this prophecy?

The second angel’s message of Revelation 14 was first preached in the summer of 1844, and it then had a more direct application to the churches of the United States, where the warning of the judgment had been most widely proclaimed and most generally rejected, and where the declension in the churches had been most rapid. But the message of the second angel did not reach its complete fulfillment in 1844. The churches then experienced a moral fall, in consequence of their refusal of the light of the advent message; but that fall was not complete. As they have continued to reject the special truths for this time they have fallen lower and lower. Not yet, however, can it be said that “Babylon is fallen,… because she made all nations drink of the wine of the wrath of her fornication.” She has not yet made all nations do this. The spirit of world conforming and indifference to the testing truths for our time exists and has been gaining ground in churches of the Protestant faith in all the countries of Christendom; and these churches are included in the solemn and terrible denunciation of the second angel. But the work of apostasy has not yet reached its culmination. – {GC 389.2}

We are now closer to the complete fall of Babylon than many suppose. “…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.” Revelation 18:2-3

It’s a mind boggling thought that Babylon, which constitute a “church” (Roman Catholic) and her “daughters” (apostate Protestantism) can become “the habitation of devils, and the hold of every foul spirit, and a cage of every unclean and hateful bird.” From the Strong concordance, “habitation” meaning to dwell, “hold” meaning to keep watch and “cage” meaning where captives are kept.

The evils in today’s world, the murders, riots, mobs, secret societies, over throw of governments, etc. can be traced back to Babylon. The Bible says of Babylon “…for by thy sorceries were all nations deceived.” Revelation 18:23 “And in her was found the blood of prophets, and of saints, and of all that were slain upon the earth.” -Revelation 18:24. From Strongs concordance , soceries “medication (pharmacy) that is (by extension) magic (literal or figurative): – sorcery witchcraft.”

“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..” Those nations that are not in line with Rome’s agenda are being brought into line. Either cunningly or by force. It is no coincidence that right now the world is going through government changes in the Middle East, particularly by riots. These are by design, those leaders that have not “committed fornication with her” are being systematically changed. Western countries such as the US, Great Britain, Germany, etc., needs no forceful change at this moment. Rome controls the electoral process. The US primary for instance, the media (by the way a candidate is portrayed) eliminates candidates, then at the end, the voters supposedly vote and select the candidate that the media has portrayed in a positive light. Then on to the general election where both candidates (hand picked) square off, but both candidates are just front men for Rome’s agenda. So no matter who the electorate elects, the results remains the same, “Rome never changes”.

The great sin charged against Babylon is that she “made all nations drink of the wine of the wrath of her fornication.” This cup of intoxication which she presents to the world represents the false doctrines that she has accepted as the result of her unlawful connection with the great ones of the earth. Friendship with the world corrupts her faith, and in her turn she exerts a corrupting influence upon the world by teaching doctrines which are opposed to the plainest statements of Holy Writ. – {GC 388.2}

The ultimate goal of Rome in making all nations drink “of the wine of the wrath of her fornication is that “These have one mind, and shall give their power and strength unto the beast.” -Revelation 17:13 When they have one mind, “…the image of the beast should both speak, and cause that as many as would not worship the image of the beast should be killed. 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, or the name of the beast, or the number of his name.” Revelation 13:15-17

The so-called Christian world is to be the theater of great and decisive actions. Men in authority will enact laws controlling the conscience, after the example of the papacy. Babylon will make all nations drink of the wine of the wrath of her fornication. Every nation will be involved. Of this time John the Revelator declares: [Revelation 18:3-7; 17:13, 14, quoted]. “These have one mind.” There will be a universal bond of union, one great harmony, a confederacy of Satan’s forces. “And shall give their power and strength unto the beast.” Thus is manifested the same arbitrary, oppressive power against religious liberty—freedom to worship God according to the dictates of conscience—as was manifested by the papacy, when in the past it persecuted those who dared to refuse to conform with the religious rites and ceremonies of Romanism.—Selected Messages 3:392 (1891). – {LDE 136.4}

“…and the merchants of the earth are waxed rich through the abundance of her delicacies”. Who are the merchants of the earth? Because they have prospered much through Rome (Babylon). The Bible tells us, “…for thy merchants were the great men of the earth; … -Revelation 18:23. The merchants are the great men of the earth, those that controls the finances of the world, with their wealth they wield great power throughout the world. These are the folks that runs the Federal Reserve (which is not the federal government, but private bankers worldwide), and the big corporations of the world, such as Walmart, Microsoft, GM, Apple, etc. These corporations pay they homage to Rome in one aspect or the other, wether it is through the products that they sell, logos (sun logos, free masonry logos, etc.) or even changing the habits of society to move away from the simple things of life, gardening, country living, and trusting in God.

The nations of the world are at the brink with financial perplexities, because of the merchants, “the great men of the earth.” Spain, Italy, (Eurozone in general), Japan, Argentina, US, really the whole world. The central banks (Fedral Reserve world wide equivalents), have loaned money (created with nothing but ink and paper) to the governments of the world with interest (governments could have done the same, interest free). The US Government for instance is receiving $40 billion dollars from the Federal Reserve monthly. The more money we print, then the lower our dollar value goes, which will result in higher prices for everything, the more expensive things get without an increase in pay, the more agitated the populace gets.

And then the great deceiver will persuade men that those who serve God are causing these evils. The class that have provoked the displeasure of Heaven will charge all their troubles upon those whose obedience to God’s commandments is a perpetual reproof to transgressors. It will be declared that men are offending God by the violation of the Sunday Sabbath; that this sin has brought calamities which will not cease until Sunday observance shall be strictly enforced; and that those who present the claims of the fourth commandment, thus destroying reverence for Sunday, are troublers of the people, preventing their restoration to divine favor and temporal prosperity. Thus the accusation urged of old against the servant of God will be repeated and upon grounds equally well established: “And it came to pass, when Ahab saw Elijah, that Ahab said unto him, Art thou he that troubleth Israel? And he answered, I have not troubled Israel; but thou, and thy father’s house, in that ye have forsaken the commandments of the Lord, and thou hast followed Baalim.” 1 Kings 18:17, 18. As the wrath of the people shall be excited by false charges, they will pursue a course toward God’s ambassadors very similar to that which apostate Israel pursued toward Elijah. – {DD 34.1}

The Bible tells us, “For the love of money is the root of all evil: which while some coveted after, they have erred from the faith, and pierced themselves through with many sorrows.” -1 Timothy 6:10 We can more appreciate what this means, “the love of money” is being placed above the love for God and the love for humanity and the nations of the world. “But evil men and seducers shall wax worse and worse, deceiving, and being deceived.” -2 Timothy 3:13 The merchants “great men” are deceiving, but they themselves are being deceived, by the devil and his agent, Rome. Neither “the great men” or Rome seem to realize that a mightier power than they and their god (satan), is in charge, “Thou sawest till that a stone was cut out without hands, which smote the image upon his feet that were of iron and clay, and brake them to pieces.” -Daniel 2:34

Rejoice over her, thou heaven, and ye holy apostles and prophets; for God hath avenged you on her. And a mighty angel took up a stone like a great millstone, and cast it into the sea, saying, Thus with violence shall that great city Babylon be thrown down, and shall be found no more at all.” -Revelation 18:20-21. Babylon is fallen, is fallen, all the signs shows us that the fall is just about completed. “The angel gave counsel as to what must be done to prepare for the days ahead. He admonished, “Get ready, get ready, get ready.” “– {1BIO 188.4}… prepare to meet thy God, O Israel. -Amos 4:12
