Many of the Prophets, Lance Walnau, Jeremiah Johnson and Patricia King, speaking today are saying that the Spirit of Babylon is behind most of the chaos happening in the world. Let’s have a closer look at how this spirit operates.
Babylon is political in nature.
Babylon is involved in political arrangements and alliances with the kings of the earth. The Bible calls this fornication. Of Babylon we read…
“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” (Rev. 17:2).
The political concepts that pervade the Babylonian mystique are both totalitarian and socialistic in nature. For those nations who have been able to implement these political concepts, the result has been wealth and riches. In due time most of peoples in the world will come under the influence and domination of the Babylonian system. –Bethel Church of God
Babylon is the catalyst behind social change.
Its goal is to do away with nation states and nationalities to unify the world. Remember the purpose behind the Tower of Babel was to fuse the peoples into one (Gen. 11:4).
Cultures are being merged in most countries of the world and vast numbers of people are moving from nation to nation. Those enmeshed in Babylon are living deliciously (Rev. 18:7). The economic system that has looted the third-world nations has done so at the expense of the masses.
The philosophy and religion behind Babylon is what is politically correct today.
What the Bible does point out, is that some of the people of God will be influenced by doctrines of demons (1 Tim. 4:1). They will not really love the Truth of God:
They will gather to themselves teachers who will tell them what they want to hear (2 Tim 4:3-4).
The acceptance of popular ideas and views will prevail.
Change will be touted as the way to go.
False teachers will be highly accepted.
Ecumenism and a one-world religion will become paramount. – Bethel Church of God
The first civilization of man was destroyed by the Flood. This civilization was the result of following the way of Satan. After the Flood, Satan tried to bring about a one-world government at the Tower of Babel. God put a stop to that.Satan has been working in the hearts and minds of men ever since. Satan’s domain is universal. His system, Babylon, is found the world over. Bethel Church of God
Babylon in the Church
Many Christian churches will compromise in order to be accepted. A major form of Babylonianism is occultism. Informed people are alarmed at the increase of this religious orientation. In addition, the peoples of the West are being inundated with oriental concepts that have their origin in ancient Babylon. – Bethel Church of God
Babylon is philosophical and religious in nature.
Historians are aware that all the philosophical systems of the world have their roots in Babylon. Why? Because it was the world’s first civilization. It is well known that some of the philosophers of Greece studied in both Babylon and Egypt.
The similarity of thought in both philosophy and religion can be seen throughout the world today. The Bible tells us the whole world has been deceived (Rev. 12:9).
The world is in a state of mental disorientation. Babylon has made the inhabitants of the earth spiritually drunk (Rev. 17:2).
The educational philosophy of Babylon is common to every nation on earth. These educational systems have been largely responsible for propagating the false concepts so popular today. – Bethel Church of God
The Babylonian belief system holds together the entire fabric of modern society.
It dominates economics, politics, social change, the military, and religion. It is the heart and core of today’s world!
The Good News…
Babylon your time is up and your days are numbered – Is 13:22
God has a strategy to overthrow the Babylonian Spirit. It was prophesied by Isaiah, over 3000 years ago.
- Raise high a flag, a banner, a decree from the high places. Enough is enough…this far and no more!
- Speak, shout out, declare. Do not keep silent.
- Listen to the sound of Angel Armies gathering from the ends of heaven. .
- God is preparing His army, His people from all the Nations for war. Babylon will be destroyed by these armies who are God’s instruments of justice.
- God is very angry with this Spirit of Babylon. With great shakings! shudderings ! shatterings ! and humblings ! He will overthrow Babylon, the jewel of the Kingdoms.
- The spirit of Babylon will be totally defeated, overthrown, lose ALL of its power and be cast down forever.
- The evil and wicked political, religious, educational, social and financial influences from this spirit will be cast down. This spirit will no longer to have power over the Nations and the people.
- Babylon will never rise again. She will be deserted with only owls and goat shaped demons dancing! Is 13:21
- The Boundaries of the Nations will be restored. People will return to their own Nations. -Isaiah 13:1-22,
The life and power of Babylon is conquered by the indwelling life of Christ – Brian Simmons Notes Is 14:4
Remind the devil that he has been cast out of heaven…
Look how you have fallen from your heavenly place, shining one, son of the dawn! You have been cut down to the ground, you who conquered nations. You said in your heart, “I will ascent into heaven and exalt my throne above the stars of God… rise pat the tops of the clouds and rival the Most High God”. -Is 14:12-22 PTP
This is the amazing strategy God has for the entire World.
This is the plan I have determined for the entire world. I will accomplish it by the demonstration of my mighty power throughout the earth. For the Lord Yahweh, the Commander of Angel Armies, has an amazing strategy and who can thwart Him? When He moves in power who can stop Him? Isaiah 14:26-27. – Passion Translation Bible.
Your Kingdom come, Your will be done on earth as it is in heaven.
