Signs of the Times Part IV
What the Bible says about the End Times
2
Three weeks ago we talked about preparing for the
Last DaysLuk 2235 And He said to them, "When
I sent you out without money belt and bag and
sandals, you did not lack anything, did you?"
They said, "No, nothing." Luk 2236 And He said
to them, "But now, whoever has a money belt is to
take it along, likewise also a bag, and whoever
has no sword is to sell his coat and buy one.
Mat 2819 "Go therefore and make disciples of
all the nations, baptizing them in the name of
the Father and the Son and the Holy Spirit, Mat
2820 teaching them to observe all that I
commanded you and lo, I am with you always, even
to the end of the age."

(Matthew 1022)"You will be hated by all
because of My name, but it is the one who has
endured to the end who will be saved.(Matthew
249)"Then they will deliver you to tribulation,
and will kill you, and you will be hated by all
nations because of My name.(Mark 1313)"You
will be hated by all because of My name, but the
one who endures to the end, he will be
saved.(Luke 2117)and you will be hated by all
because of My name.(John 1518)"If the world
hates you, you know that it has hated Me before
it hated you.
6
Whats the World sayingThere are an estimated
98 million Christian evangelicals in the United
States, but of concern here is its sub-group,
known as Christian Zionists. They believe that
Jews are God's chosen people and have a divine
deed to their contested land, in accordance
with a covenant described in the first book of
the Bible.World News Reporter, March 22, 2003
7
attacks against Muslims, homosexuals, abortion
clinics, and now killing of progressive
politicians are the result of these born again
ultra right wing players. Sarah Palin is just
the tip of the iceberg as these Bible toting
Zionists continue in creating a atmosphere of
hateCNN Blog, 1-17-11
8
"similarity between the way the Roman authorities
charged Christians of that era with odium humani
generis -- 'hatred of the human race' --and the
way the political and media establishment charge
the Christians with creating a 'climate of hate.'
" Scary stuff. -Wesley Pruden (editor in chief
of The Times)
9
The Major players in the End Times World
Israel back in the land and making it bloom
Babylon the nation that influences the world
and imports the most goods. The world leader just
prior to the antichrists rise to power
Gog-Magog alliance of nations that come against
Israel
Rome 10 leaders who give the antichrist his
power
A major country in the east that does not go
along with the one world antichrist government
An alliance of Muslim nations devoted to
destroying Israel
  • Every major headline on world events focuses on
    these 6 players today!

10
1John 218 Children, it is the last hour and
just as you heard that antichrist is coming, even
now many antichrists have appeared from this we
know that it is the last hour.
11
Today we will look at BabylonRevelation 148
And another angel, a second one, followed,
saying, "Fallen, fallen is Babylon the great, she
who has made all the nations drink of the wine of
the passion of her immorality."
12
Revevaltion 189 "And the kings of the earth,
who committed acts of immorality and lived
sensuously with her, will weep and lament over
her when they see the smoke of her burning
13
Tale of Two Cities
  • Jerusalem Babylon
  • City of God City of Man

14
Theories
  • Babylon is the UK or EU
  • Babylon is Rome
  • Babylon is the Catholic Church
  • Babylon is the U.N.
  • Babylon is the United States -
  • Babylon is the _______________
  • Lets see how the prophets describe Babylon!

15
  • Another character trait for Mystery Babylon is
    that of being the "engine of world's economy".
    Now the scriptural texts do not specifically use
    those exact terms but those terms match to the
    description of the activities described about
    Mystery Babylon. Revelation 1815-19 indicates
    that the world's economy can't function without
    "Mystery Babylon". When she is destroyed the
    lament goes up from the merchants of the earth
    that "no man buyeth their merchandise any more."

16
Jerusalem Babylon then
17
Symbolic
Jerusalem in the last days is called. Rev 118
And their dead bodies will lie in the street of
the great city which mystically is called Sodom
and Egypt, where also their Lord was crucified.
In these last days, especially when the False
Messiah is embraced by the Jews, Jerusalem will
be symbolically Sodom and Egypt! the synagogue
of Satan
18
Rev 29 'I know your tribulation and your
poverty (but you are rich), and the blasphemy by
those who say they are Jews and are not, but are
a synagogue of Satan.
19
The Church is Spiritual Jerusalem today
20
Jerusalem is all about the Temple a place to
worship
1Pe 25 you also, as living stones, are being
built up as a spiritual house for a holy
priesthood, to offer up spiritual sacrifices
acceptable to God through Jesus Christ.
1Co 316 Do you not know that you are a temple
of God and that the Spirit of God dwells in you?
21
In these last days.
Geographic Location Spiritual
designation Jerusalem
Sodom, Egypt, synagogue of Satan. Rome
The world
power that births the Antichrist Babylon (Iraq)
Becomes the foremost
world power and rides to power from Rome, and
helps the antichrist come to power, but then is
hated by the antichrist and destroyed.
Rev 177 And the angel said to me, "Why do you
wonder? I will tell you the mystery of the
woman(Babylon) and of the beast (Rome)that
carries her, which has the seven heads and the
ten horns.
22
Thus, it is called Mystery Babylon
Rev 183 "For all the nations have drunk of the
wine of the passion of her immorality, and the
kings of the earth have committed acts of
immorality with her, and the merchants of the
earth have become rich by the wealth of her
sensuality."
23
End time kingdoms
  • Britain used a lot of time, money, and resources
    to establish the colonies. (America riding to
    power on the kingdom of the beast)
  • Now, America and Britain have a special
    relationship
  • Once the false messiah takes power, America wont
    want the one world government he is establishing
    and the EU will hate America.
  • The rhetoric of hating America has already begun!

24
  • The Bibles end-time prophecies do not only focus
    on the kingdom of the Antichrist. The Bible also
    devotes a great deal of attention to the other
    end-times power. This power is introduced in
    Revelation as a mystery, and she is named Babylon

25
  • Babylon will use the beast and his system,
    thinking it is accomplishing its goal of world
    peace through him, thus riding on the beast.
  • However, once the beast comes to power, he will
    hate Babylon and God will give him the strength
    to defeat her.
  • (Revelation 1716-17)
  • "The beast and the ten horns you saw will hate
    the prostitute. They will bring her to ruin and
    leave her naked they will eat her flesh and burn
    her with fire. For God has put it into their
    hearts to accomplish his purpose by agreeing to
    give the beast their power to rule, until God's
    words are fulfilled."

26
  • The Antichrist and Babylon the Great will be
    bitter enemies. Babylon will exercise global
    power before the Antichrist, but after he appears
    the beast and the ten kings will attack Babylon,
    shifting global power into the hands of the
    beast.
  • Babylon will be utterly destroyed
  • But what about the Christians in Babylon?

27
There will be a clear call to flee prior to the
destruction
Jer 515 For neither Israel nor Judah has been
forsaken By his God, the LORD of hosts, Although
their land is full of guilt Before the Holy One
of Israel. Jer 516 Flee from the midst of
Babylon, And each of you save his life! Do not be
destroyed in her punishment, For this is the
LORD'S time of vengeance He is going to render
recompense to her. Jer 517 Babylon has been a
golden cup in the hand of the LORD, Intoxicating
all the earth. The nations have drunk of her
wine Therefore the nations are going mad.
  • Rev 183 "For all the nations have drunk of the
    wine of the passion of her immorality, and the
    kings of the earth have committed acts of
    immorality with her, and the merchants of the
    earth have become rich by the wealth of her
    sensuality."
  • Rev 184 I heard another voice from heaven,
    saying, "Come out of her, my people, so that you
    will not participate in her sins and receive of
    her plagues
  • Rev 185 for her sins have piled up as high as
    heaven, and God has remembered her iniquities.

28
Babel, 2010, B.C.America, 2010, A.D.
29
Babylon 2011 B.C. USA 2011
A.D.
  • After the Arc ran aground on mount Arat, mankind
    multiplied quickly.
  • About 150 years after they stepped off the arc,
    man began to show his pride.
  • They wanted to build a tower that reached heaven.
  • They loved their own accomplishments
  • Both had people arrive by boat
  • About 150 years after they stepped off the boats,
    we began to show our pride. (1776)
  • We built many towers that reached into the sky.
  • We love and brag about our own accomplishments

30
A global language
  • Genesis 111-91. Now the whole world had one
    language and a common speech. 4. Then they
    said, "Come, let us build ourselves a city, with
    a tower that reaches to the heavens, so that we
    may make a name for ourselves
  • The global language of business today is English!
  • We built many towers to reach the sky.
  • We have made a name for ourselves.

31
Gen. 115-8
  • 5. But the Lord came down to see the city and the
    tower that the men were building. 6. The Lord
    said, "If as one people speaking the same
    language they have begun to do this, then nothing
    they plan to do will be impossible for them. 7.
    Come, let us go down and confuse their language
    so they will not understand each other."8. So
    the Lord scattered them from there over all the
    earth, and they stopped building the city. 9.
    That is why it was called Babel--because the Lord
    confused the language of the whole world. From
    there the Lord scattered them over the face of
    the whole earth.

32
Sounds like a fable right?
  • We have extra Biblical proof that this event
    occurred!

33
Enmerkar and the Lord of Aratta 21st Century BC
( we are in the 21st too) George Smith
(1840-1876) Translated the Babylonian flood
tablet also translated this tablet The
building of this temple offended the gods. In a
night they threw down what had been built. They
scattered them abroad and made strange their
speech. The progress they impeded.
34
  • Sumerian tablets record the confusion of language
    as we have in the Biblical account of the Tower
    of Babel (Genesis 111-9). There was a golden age
    when all mankind spoke the same language. Speech
    was then confused by the god Enki, lord of
    wisdom. The Babylonians had a similar account in
    which the gods destroyed a temple tower and
    "scattered them abroad and made strange their
    speech.
  • Kramer, Samuel N.1968 The Babel of Tongues A

    Oriental Society 8810811

Hanging Gardens of Babylon
37
Not one city
  • Jeremiah tells us in chapter 5032b"I will
    kindle a fire in his CITIES and it shall devour
    all round about him."
  • Jeremiah tells us in chapter 5143 of the
    description of Babylon after the judgment "Her
    CITIES are a desolation, a dry land, and a
    wilderness, a land where no man dwelleth
  • This cant be the Catholic Church!!!

38
Babylon is referring to a nation
  • Jer 5012 Your mother will be greatly ashamed,
    She who gave you birth will be humiliated.
    Behold, she will be the least of the nations, A
    wilderness, a parched land and a desert.
  • Jer 5013 "Because of the indignation of the
    LORD she will not be inhabited, But she will be
    completely desolate Everyone who passes by
    Babylon will be horrified And will hiss because
    of all her wounds.

39
Engine of the Global economy
  • Another character trait for Mystery Babylon is
    that of being the "engine of world's economy".
    Now the scriptural texts do not specifically use
    those exact terms but those terms match to the
    description of the activities described about
    Mystery Babylon. Revelation 1815-19 indicates
    that the world's economy can't function without
    "Mystery Babylon". When she is destroyed the
    lament goes up from the merchants of the earth
    that "no man buyeth their merchandise any more."

40
Let us now examine other aspects of Babylon the
Great, the last global power before the rise of
the Antichrist
41
  • Has a great voice influences many (Jeremiah
    5155).
  • Reigns over the kings of the Earth (Revelation
    1718). Note How many Kings and governments have
    been propped up and/or removed by the various
    secret agencies of the USA?
  • Hammer of the whole Earth world policeman
    (Jeremiah 5023). Note Any need of elaboration?
  • Land abundant in treasure (Jeremiah 5037, 5113
    Revelation 1814,17).
  • Merchants made rich by her (Revelation 183
    1817-19). Note China, Taiwan, Japan, Saudi
    Arabia and many other nations have been made rich
    by America's consumerism.

42
  • Land of mighty men (Jeremiah 5036 5130).
  • Land of mixed peoples/immigrants (Jeremiah 5016,
    37).

43
  • Land of farmers/agriculture (Jeremiah 5016).
  • Land of craftsmen/manufacturing (Revelation
    1822).
  • Land of musicians/music (Revelation 1822 Isaiah
    1411). Note America's music industry flows to
    the entire world.
  • Land of vanity and pleasure (Isaiah 478
    Revelation 187). Note America's entertainment
    industry, materialism, consumerism.

44
  • Belief of immunity to invasion dwells carelessly
    (Isaiah 478). Note Because of America's nuclear
    deterrent, the majority of it military is hosted
    by other countries. Other than Pearl Harbor and
    the 9/11 attacks, it has been a very long time
    since America was on the receiving end of an
    invasion... and the people commonly pride
    themselves on this fact.
  • Grown fat (Jeremiah 5011). Note which country's
    population is the most over-weight in the world
    and accumulates the most "stuff"?

45
  •  
  • When she is destroyed
  • Nations will be horrified (Jeremiah 5023).
  • Her cities set on fire (Jeremiah 5032
    Revelation 188).
  • Desolate and uninhabited forever (Isaiah
    1319-22 Jeremiah 5012-13 Jeremiah 5126,29).
  • The Merchants of the world will weep, wondering
    who will buy their goods
  • Rev 189 "And the kings of the earth, who
    committed acts of immorality and lived sensuously
    with her, will weep and lament over her when they
    see the smoke of her burning,
  • Rev 1810 standing at a distance because of the
    fear of her torment, saying, 'Woe, woe, the great
    city, Babylon, the strong city! For in one hour
    your judgment has come.'
  • Rev 1811 "And the merchants of the earth weep
    and mourn over her, because no one buys their
    cargoes any more--

46
  • geographically, Babylon is a land that dwells
    upon many waters (Jeremiah 5113).
  • Jer 5113 O you who dwell by many waters,
    Abundant in treasures, Your end has come, The
    measure of your end.
  • Babylon is a country that has defeated mighty
    kingdoms through war (Jeremiah 5023, 5120-21).
  • Babylon is a mighty military power (Jeremiah
    5153).

47
  • Is Iraq really the Babylon that will be in the
    last days?

48

little one in Basra, and three other river docks.

49
  • Rev 1816 saying, 'Woe, woe, the great city, she
    who was clothed in fine linen and purple and
    scarlet, and adorned with gold and precious
    stones and pearls
  • Rev 1817 for in one hour such great wealth has
    been laid waste!' And every shipmaster and every
    passenger and sailor, and as many as make their
    living by the sea, stood at a distance,
  • Rev 1818 and were crying out as they saw the
    smoke of her burning, saying, 'What city is like
    the great city?'
  • Rev 1819 "And they threw dust on their heads
    and were crying out, weeping and mourning,
    saying, 'Woe, woe, the great city, in which all
    who had ships at sea became rich by her wealth,
    for in one hour she has been laid waste!'

50
Timeline - IRAQ
  • Iraq is a poor country that has no influence on
    the world at all.
  • It is a divided country the Sunnis, the
    Shiites, and the Kirds. (Babylon will have a
    nation of imigrants)
  • They are not a world power, and they import
    almost no goods.
  • We are there to bring Democracy and our influence
    into Iraq.
  • We now control Iraq
  • America is the head of Babylon today!

51
Iraq cant be the Babylon of Revelation in its
current condition!
  • However, lets speculate
  • After we bombed Japan, we helped it become a
    major world power!
  • Could we do the same for Iraq?
  • Its possible

52
  • babylon is the chief of trading nations in the
    world at the time of the end (revelation 18
    11-19). Babylon is an arrogant nation,
    believing it will never experience the wrath of
    God for her evil ways (Isaiah 475-11 Revelation
    187-8).

53
End times Babylon built great towers touching the
sky
  • Jer 517 Babylon has been a golden cup in the
    hand of the LORD, Intoxicating all the earth. The
    nations have drunk of her wine Therefore the
    nations are going mad.
  • Jer 518 Suddenly Babylon has fallen and been
    broken Wail over her! Bring balm for her pain
    Perhaps she may be healed.
  • Jer 519 We applied healing to Babylon, but she
    was not healed Forsake her and let us each go to
    his own country, For her judgment has reached to
    heaven And towers up to the very skies.

54
  • Rev 1823 and the light of a lamp will not shine
    in you any longer and the voice of the
    bridegroom and bride will not be heard in you any
    longer for your merchants were the great men of
    the earth, because all the nations were deceived
    by your sorcery.
  • For by your sorcery all the nations were
    deceived Sorcery is the ancient Greek word
    pharmakia, which means, to prepare drugs. The
    lure of commercial Babylon is like a drug
    addiction, fed by intoxicating advertising. It
    also alludes to amazing things, like electricity,
    lights, vehicles, etc.

55
  • Babylon will have a Space program like no other
    nation
  • (Jer 5153) "Though Babylon should/will ascend
    to the heavens, And though she should fortify her
    lofty stronghold, From Me destroyers will come to
    her," declares the LORD.
  • Strongs and, (forasmuch, inasmuch, where-)
    as, assured -ly, but, certainly, doubtless,
    else, even

56
Spiritual Adultery committed by the nation..,
  • "With her the kings of the earth committed
    adultery and the inhabitants of the earth were
    intoxicated with the wine of her adulteries."  
    Revelation 172
  • "For all the nations have drunk the maddening
    wine of her adulteries. The kings of the earth
    committed adultery with her"   Revelation 183
  • "When the kings of the earth who committed
    adultery with her and shared her luxury see the
    smoke of her burning, they will weep and mourn
    over her."   Revelation 189
  • Note In the old Testament and the new,
    spiritual adultery is worshiping or putting
    anything above God. And, it can only be done by
    a nation or person who knew God, worshiped God,
    and then left that covenant with God!

57
Just like Israel, the USA was born a Christian
nation, be we have broke covenant with God and
become the Great Harlot of Revelation This
cant be Iraq
  • Jer 36 Then the LORD said to me in the days of
    Josiah the king, "Have you seen what faithless
    Israel did? She went up on every high hill and
    under every green tree, and she was a harlot
    there.
  • Jer 37 "I thought, 'After she has done all
    these things she will return to Me' but she did
    not return, and her treacherous sister Judah saw
    it.
  • Jer 38 "And I saw that for all the adulteries
    of faithless Israel, I had sent her away and
    given her a writ of divorce, yet her treacherous
    sister Judah did not fear but she went and was a
    harlot also.
  • Jer 39 "Because of the lightness of her
    harlotry, she polluted the land and committed
    adultery with stones and trees.
  • Rev 192 BECAUSE HIS JUDGMENTS ARE TRUE AND
    RIGHTEOUS for He has judged the great harlot who
    was corrupting the earth with her immorality, and
    HE HAS AVENGED THE BLOOD OF HIS BOND-SERVANTS ON
    HER."

58
  • Babylons worship of materialism is shown through
    her emphasis on riches, luxury and the material
    things of this world -
  • "her sins are piled up to heaven, and God has
    remembered her crimes. Give back to her as she
    has givenGive her as much torture and grief as
    the glory and luxury she gave herself." 185-7
  • "the merchants of the earth grew rich from her
    excessive luxuries." 183
  • Babylon is a great consumer of material goods and
    when she falls the merchants mourn over their
    loss of revenue,
  • "The merchants of the earth will weep and mourn
    over her because no one buys their cargoes any
    more-

59
  • "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."
    183
  • "When the kings of the earth who committed
    adultery with her and shared her luxury see the
    smoke of her burning, they will weep and mourn
    over her." 189
  • "The merchants who sold these things and gained
    their wealth from her will stand far off,
    terrified at her torment." 1815
  • "Woe! Woe, O great city, where all who had ships
    on the sea became rich through her wealth! In one
    hour she has been brought to ruin!" 1819

60
  • "Every sea 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/ nation like this great city?"
    1817-18
  • "The woman you saw is the great nation/ city that
    rules over the kings of the earth." 1718 

61
Babylon of the last days is a nation made up of
people from many nations (only America fits this
description) We are the melting pot.
62
  • Babylon is also described as a power whose
    population is made up of diverse races and
    cultures "the great prostitute, who sits on
    many waters Then the angel said to me, The
    waters you saw, where the prostitute sits, are
    peoples, multitudes, nations and languages."
    171,15

63
Rev 174 The woman was clothed in purple and
scarlet, and adorned with gold and precious
stones and pearls, having in her hand a gold cup
full of abominations and of the unclean things of
her immorality, Rev 175 and on her forehead a
name was written, a mystery, "BABYLON THE GREAT,
THE MOTHER OF HARLOTS AND OF THE ABOMINATIONS OF
THE EARTH."

65
We live more sensuously than any other nation on
earth
  • Rev 187 "To the degree that she glorified
    herself and lived sensuously, to the same degree
    give her torment and mourning for she says in
    her heart, 'I SIT as A QUEEN AND I AM NOT A
    WIDOW, and will never see mourning.'
  • Rev 188 "For this reason in one day her plagues
    will come, pestilence and mourning and famine,
    and she will be burned up with fire for the Lord
    God who judges her is strong.

66
Who is true Babylon Today?
  • Revelation 17-18 Babylon is the world economic

Habakuk 15-7 Look at the nations and watchand
be utterly amazed. For I am going to do something
in your days that you would not believe, even if
you were told. 6 I am raising up the Babylonians,
that ruthless and impetuous people, who sweep
across the whole earth to seize dwelling-places
not their own. 7 They are a feared and dreaded
people they are a law to themselves and promote
their own honor.
America seems to fit the Biblical model for
Spiritual Babylon today

We still control Iraq

America, influences the world. Its economy
drives the world. As goes America, so goes the
world. American currency is the worlds
currency America buys our goods. Lady liberty is
the symbol of America and she gives us pleasures
like no other nation. America has made every
nation rich, and apart from her, we would still
be without hope of world peace. America exports
entertainment, and imports everything else.
72
Some Christians are more American than they are
Christian. Some think that their freedom comes
from the United States of America
73
  • (Galatians 51)
  • It was for freedom that Christ set us free
    therefore keep standing firm and do not be
    subject again to a yoke of slavery.
  •  
  • (Galatians 513)
  • For you were called to freedom, brethren only do
    not turn your freedom into an opportunity for the
    flesh, but through love serve one another.

74
  • It seems many Christians are led by their own
    flesh, rather than the Spirit.
  • Rom 813 for if you are living according to the
    flesh, you must die but if by the Spirit you are
    putting to death the deeds of the body, you will
    live. 14 For all who are being led by the Spirit
    of God, these are sons of God. 15 For you have
    not received a spirit of slavery leading to fear
    again, but you have received a spirit of adoption
    as sons by which we cry out, "Abba! Father!

75
America is driven by appetite
  • Php 318 For many walk, of whom I often told
    you, and now tell you even weeping, that they are
    enemies of the cross of Christ,
  • Php 319 whose end is destruction, whose god is
    their appetite, and whose glory is in their
    shame, who set their minds on earthly things.
  • Php 320 For our citizenship is in heaven, from
    which also we eagerly wait for a Savior, the Lord
    Jesus Christ

76
  • These truly are exciting times
  • Rom 1311 Do this, knowing the time, that it is
    already the hour for you to awaken from sleep
    for now salvation is nearer to us than when we
    believed.
  • Rom 1312 The night is almost gone, and the day
    is near. Therefore let us lay aside the deeds of
    darkness and put on the armor of light.
  • Its time to Stand Strong!

77
  • Next week we will cover the Gog, Magog, and
    Middle East, and what the Bible says it will be
