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. Jeremiah 51:7
Here the Prophet Jeremiah prophecies about the “Fall of Babylon” , now many probably misinterpreted this to mean the literal Babylon that was oppressing Israel during this time. But this is partly the case, we also see another Babylon in Revelation, so whats going on here?
The word Babylon means confusion. It all started at the Tower of Babel by Nimrod who wanted to be God and create a Kingdom himself. God obviously stopped this movement, and scattered them across the world in confusion.
The Next Babylon during Jeremiahs days, would take over Jerusalem and destroy the Holy Temple. But Jeremiah was also speaking of a “Spiritual Babylon” that we see in the Book of Revelation.
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.” Revelation 14:8
Notice we see in the prophecies from Jeremiah and Revelation that “Babylon” has made the entire world drunk. This evil empire would get the entire world to follow its agenda. This agenda would be filled with immorality, does this sound familiar? Do you see evil agendas created by the system today?
But take note, God will destroy this evil empire. Spiritual Babylon will come to ruins, and when it does everyone who is drunk on her immorality will mourn. Don’t follow the Beast, follow the King of Kings and Lord of Lords Jesus Christ.
In the end Christ will reign forevermore, while all evil will be thrown into the Lake of Fire Halleluiah to the Lamb of God Amen!
