Babylon is coming,
from the North.
You will be surprised
by what is unearthed.
The United Nations
will stake their claim
by building their house
will influence men,
and greed and gore
will rip open the land.
Watch and see,
what will come to be.
Carnality will succeed.
Humans will profane
My great name,
and false prophecy
will be exclaimed.
I will be taken
out of government,
while the Tower of Babel
is being rebuilt.
This time, I will allow men
to destroy themselves,
and this time
I will be bringing
My judgment down.
You know me as a lamb -
the Son of Man who came
to redeem the world.
But you will see that I am King
the Lion of Judah
who will soon stake My claim!
You will have a time and a half
to do your work, and reconcile
the hearts of men.
My ROAR will be heard
all over the earth,
look and listen for My voice.
I am speaking in reverse.
The scroll is being unrolled,
to bring My Kingdom down
from Heaven to earth.
No one knows the day or the hour -
Only the Father.
The harvest is ripe.
The workers are few.
Now get up and do My work!
I woke up with the word
on my mind, and thought...
“I wonder why people distinguish
"Evangelical Christians" -
as if there is
The definition for evangelical
a human who believes
that the Word of God
is Holy Spirit inspired.
In my mind,
if a person claims to be Christian -
they testify to the Old
and the New Testament.
A Christian believes in Jesus Christ,
as the beloved Son of God.
They believe He is the way, the truth, the life
and that no one comes to the Father
but through the Son.
Christians believe Old Testament prophecy
points to the King of Righteousness.
Christians believe that God is the Father
of all creation;
and that He has established Christ
as His foundation.
Christians believe His Holy Spirit is our guide,
and He is the One who opens our eyes.
Christians believe that we are redeemed
through both God's mercy and His grace.
Christians believe the words of Jesus,
"Everything must be fulfilled
that is written about Me
in the Law of Moses,
the Prophets, and the Psalms” of David.
The whole reason why Jesus came
was not only to redeem just one man,
but to redeem every man from every nation!
"Therefore go and make disciples
of all nations,
baptizing them in the name of the Father
and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit,
and teaching them to obey
everything I have commanded you.
And surely I am with you always,
to the very end of the age.”
Evangelism is the solemn duty
of every Christian.
Everyone who knows Jesus understands
that we are called to pick up His cross
and follow in His footsteps.
We are to work as one body,
each part working together
to prepare the harvest.
And this brings me to Daniel 3
where I was introduced
to a phenomenal King!
whose real name was Eliakim,
until Pharoah Neco exploited him.
But to his father,
As soon as I saw
the first verse of Daniel,
I knew immediately
that I had to go back
to learn why Judah was under attack.
Who is King Jehoiakim,
and what was Judah’s history?
How did this travesty come to be?
Why did God permit Babylon
to enter her gates
605 years before the birth of Christ?
First - Egypt was involved,
as he usually is.
After King Josiah of Judah was slain,
Pharoah Neco, the King of Egypt,
imprisoned Josiah's oldest son,
King Jehoahaz, and held him for ransom.
Then Neco installed Eliakim to be Judah's king.
He was the second son of King Josiah,
and he was King Jehoahaz's brother.
Pharoah Neco changed Eliakim's name
so that he could be his puppet
and tax Judah to death.
And during Jehoiakim's reign,
another invader came in,
but this one was more brutal than Egypt.
He too taxed Judah to death,
and then he came and took
the articles from the temple of God
that were dedicated to the Lord.
His name was Babylon,
and he was sent by the Lord.
He army was comprised
of many bands of tribes;
the Arameans, Moabites and Ammonites -
all joined together as the Babylonians.
Yes! That is what I said.
Babylon was sent by God
to defeat Jerusalem
for the sins they had committed
The sins of King Manasseh,
who was King Josiah's grandfather,
were far too great and had to be punished.
The reign of Manasseh
can be found in
the 21st Chapter of 2 Kings.
He defiled the land with witchcraft,
sorcery, divination and mediums.
He build an altar to Asherah
on the same temple that was built for God.
He even sacrificed his own son -
and spilled so much innocent blood
over the land.
"Manasseh shed so much innocent blood
that he filled Jerusalem from end to end,
in addition to the sin
that he had caused Judah to commit,
doing evil in the sight of the LORD."
2 Kings 21:16
So this explains why Judah fell
into the fists of Babylon.
Yet, in between
Manasseh and Eliakim,
was a great king who did what was right
in the sight of the Lord.
His name was Josiah.
"Neither before nor after Josiah
was there any king like him,
who turned to the LORD
with all his heart and with all his soul
and with all his strength,
according to all the Law of Moses."
2 Kings 23:25
King Josiah was the grandson of Manasseh,
and his father’s name was Amon.
He was only 8 years old
when he became king,
the child who became a man
and had a heart like David.
Since He put all of his efforts
into renovating the temple,
the priest Hilkiah,
found the Book of the Law
and brought it to Josiah.
When Josiah read its contents,
he tore his clothes
and mourned for all of Israel.
He asked his priest to return to the temple
to seek the wisdom of God
because his sole desire
was to please the Lord.
The priest went to the prophet Huldah,
who was a woman!
Scripture says she was the wife of Shaluum,
who was the keeper of the temple wardrobe.
“This is what the Lord, the God of Israel, says:
Tell the man who sent you to me,
‘This is what the Lord says:
I am going to bring disaster
on this place and its people,
according to everything
written in the book
the king of Judah has read.
Because they have forsaken me
and burned incense to other gods
and aroused my anger
by all the idols their hands have made,
my anger will burn against this place
and will not be quenched.’
Tell the king of Judah,
who sent you to inquire of the Lord,
‘This is what the Lord,
the God of Israel, says
concerning the words you heard:
Because your heart was responsive
and you humbled yourself
before the Lord
when you heard what I have spoken
against this place and its people
that they would become a curse
and be laid waste
and because you tore your robes
and wept in my presence,
I also have heard you,
declares the Lord.
Therefore I will gather you
to your ancestors,
and you will be buried in peace.
Your eyes will not see
all the disaster I am going to bring
on this place.’
So they took her answer back
to the king.”
2 Kings 22:15-20 NIV
After Josiah received the message,
he did all that he could
to reform the people.
He brought everyone to the temple,
and renewed the covenant
in the Lord’s presence.
He removed all the articles of Baal,
and he tore down the Asherah poles.
He rejected all the powers of the heavens,
and only bowed down to the One True God.
He burned dead bones of evil men,
and he executed priests of pagan shrines;
and believe it or not,
He renewed the Passover
that had not been celebrated
since the time of the Judges!
So we see King Josiah as an evangelical -
who believed everything
that was written by Moses,
through the Voice of God,
into the Torah,
the Book of the Law.
He took God's Word into his heart,
and realigned his thoughts to match up.
Can you imagine
what would have happened
if Josiah had not evangelized the nation?
I wonder what would have happened
if the people did not repent?
the prophet Jeremiah called their bluff,
when he said,
"But why not call on these gods you have made?
When trouble comes, let them save you if they can!
For you have as many gods
as there are towns in Judah.
Why do you accuse me of doing wrong?
You are the ones who have rebelled,”
And he continues...
“I have punished your children,
but they did not respond to my discipline.
You yourselves have killed your prophets
as a lion kills its prey.
“O my people, listen to the words of the Lord!
Have I been like a desert to Israel?
Have I been to them a land of darkness?
Why then do my people say,
‘At last we are free from God!
We don’t need him anymore!’
Does a young woman forget her jewelry,
or a bride her wedding dress?
Yet for years on end
my people have forgotten me.
“How you plot and scheme to win your lovers.
Even an experienced prostitute
could learn from you!
Your clothing is stained
with the blood of the innocent and the poor,
though you didn’t catch them
breaking into your houses!
And yet you say,
‘I have done nothing wrong.
Surely God isn’t angry with me!’
But now I will punish you severely
because you claim you have not sinned.
First here, then there--
you flit from one ally to another
asking for help.
But your new friends in Egypt will let you down,
just as Assyria did before.
In despair, you will be led into exile
with your hands on your heads,
for the Lord has rejected
the nations you trust.
They will not help you at all."
And then he brings it home -
"If a man divorces a woman
and she goes and marries someone else,
he will not take her back again,
for that would surely corrupt the land.
But you have prostituted yourself
with many lovers,
so why are you trying to come back to me?
Look at the shrines on every hilltop.
Is there any place you have not been defiled
by your adultery with other gods?
You sit like a prostitute beside the road
waiting for a customer.
You sit alone like a nomad in the desert.
You have polluted the land
with your prostitution and your wickedness.
That’s why even the spring rains have failed.
For you are a brazen prostitute
and completely shameless.
Yet you say to me,
‘Father, you have been my guide since my youth.
Surely you won’t be angry forever!
Surely you can forget about it!
So you talk,
but you keep on doing all the evil you can.”
So I ask you, what is true?
Can there be a true Christian
who is not evangelical?
The time to get in line
has already been pre-subscribed.
Everyone has a choice to make.
Everyone has a role to take.
The man you pick
will be written
into what America is to become.
The fact that many
will choose wrong
shows what America
has already become.
Open borders has let Satan in.
has turned the minds of men.
has spilled innocent blood.
Money is made through babies parts.
I can hear children crying
as men and women
rip them, sell them and rape them.
People are dazed and confused.
Aimlessly wandering in the wilderness.
Identity confusion has taken hold.
No one knows who they are anymore.
I am the creator of everything.
Why do humans
try to thwart my plans?
Instead of turning to Me for wisdom,
everyone goes to the internet.
Prescription drugs are overtaken
because humans prefer to feel numb.
Suicide and depression is on the rise -
all because I have been removed
from the land.
Hope is not found in other humans.
Hope is found in Me alone.
Keep on building your therapy rooms.
Keep on building your houses on sand.
America has become like Babylon -
relying on humans
instead of believing who I am!
2020 brought much division.
It had been My choice
to divide and scatter everyone.
There are many nations
who have fallen,
but I chose you
to stand with Israel.
Do you think
I have left My beloved behind?
Not a chance!
I have just started!
In the coming days
you will see PEACE,
but that will only entice My enemies.
They are currently acting
behind the scenes
to create a war like you have never seen.
During this time,
you get to choose WHO
you are serving!
There is a plumb line,
despite how much
you attempt to shake it.
You can twist and pull,
in all directions,
but when you let you go,
it will return to its proper position.
Either you take my yoke
and follow ME,
or you remain hard and stubborn -
and will be removed from the wheat.
There is only ONE King
that has authority
to revive what I have called dead.
His name is not Mohammad,
or Buddha or Baal.
His name is Yeshua,
and He is the Judge of all!
He is the Lion of Judah
and He holds a scepter -
a staff and rod that speaks for Me.
He is the Messiah
who has came to redeem
the souls of men
who choose to follow Him.
The nation that chooses
to be Under God,
through the authority of My son,
is the nation that I will stand with.
Now before the enemy comes back,
open My Book and learn who I am.
The end is near,
and the fertilizer is rich,
and I have prepared
the hearts of My servants.
The harvest is ripe,
and it must be picked.
I am dividing the wheat from the chaff.
You will see many coming in My name,
but be careful -
our enemy is not dumb.
He will manipulate and appear like love,
but do not believe any man
who does not stand on My Word!
They are a false prophet,
and they will be condemned!
Do not let him twist my lines
to make it seem like he is mine.
My story is The Whole Book -
not just random parts of it.
You must be quiet,
and read between the lines.
Holy Spirit will guide your time.
The sun is setting.
Darkness is coming.
It is time
to prepare your oil
and grab your lamps.
Yesterday I learned
a little bit about Babylon,
today I will explore just a little more.
The Babylonians were also
known as the Chaldeans,
and they came from the lower region
of the Fertile Crescent
known as Mesopotamia -
which is the land that curves
between the Persian Gulf
and the Mediterranean Sea.
This is the land where
Father Abraham was born,
from a town called Ur.
His father was Terah,
who was a 9th generation
descendant of Noah
from the line of Shem.
For some reason, God chose Abram,
to leave the land of the Chaldeans,
and all his relatives,
and his father’s family,
to go to a land
that He would show him.
God promised to bless him
into a great nation,
who would then go on
to bless other nations.
to the land of Canaan,
as far as Shechem.
Shechem is a region known as
the Eastern Mediterranean;
and consists of Israel, Gaza,
Jordan and the West Bank,
and the southern parts
of Syria and Lebanon.
It was in Shechem,
under an Oak,
in the hill country of Ephraim
that Abram’s faith was marked.
He built an altar
and dedicated it to the Lord.
Shechem became the first capital
of the Kingdom of Israel -
now I'm wondering "Where is Jerusalem?"
After that, Abraham set up camps,
to the east, west and south.
I wonder, why not the north?
And this makes me think
of Deuteronomy 11,
where Moses is in the Valley of Shechem,
looking up at two mountains,
one to the north and one to the south,
and this is what he says,
"When the Lord your God has brought you
into the land you are entering to possess,
you are to proclaim on Mount Gerizim
and on Mount Ebal the curses.
As you know,
these mountains are across the Jordan,
westward, toward the setting sun,
near the great trees of Moreh,
in the territory of those Canaanites
living in the Arabah (desert)
in the vicinity of Gilgal (eastern border of Jericho).
You are about to cross the Jordan
to enter and take possession
of the land the Lord your God is giving you.
When you have taken it over and are living there,
be sure that you obey all the decrees and laws
I am setting before you today."
is Mount Gerizim also known as
Mount Moriah -
the same mountain
that Abraham was commanded
to sacrifice his son?
Is this the mountain
where Abraham's faith was rewarded?
Is this the same mountain
where the Israelites,
who became Samaritans
went to live?
I can see Father Abraham
denouncing the life he once owned;
I can see his tears
streaming down his eyes.
I can see his faith filling up the space;
I can see a promise extending from his lips.
I can hear his heart beating like the sun;
I can feel his strength shaking from his bones.
I believe it's in the place
that Jacob dug a well,
175 years later
and he would settle there.
And then we see,
Joseph being sold into slavery –
to save Israel from famine,
and preserve the nation.
And once again,
hundreds of years later,
Moses would renounce Egypt
and lead God’s people
back to the land of Canaan.
And when Moses was old,
God would raise up another one -
Joshua would bring the blessing
by leading the people across the river Jordan,
and into the land of Canaan.
Beneath the tree,
at Jacob’s Well
is where Jesus would speak
to a lost, lonely and broken-hearted
He extended His hand,
and showed her love
so that she would know
she too had met the Messiah -
and would be saved under His covenant.
“Do not look to Mount Ebal
for there is no hope to the north.”
This is what I heard the Spirit saying.
Lord, help me to understand
what the north means.
I could not get passed
the first verse of Daniel
“In the third year of the reign
of Jehoiakim, King of Judah,
Nebuchadnezzar, King of Babylon,
came to Jerusalem and besieged it.”
Daniel 1:1 NIV
There is so much research
I need to do on this,
but for today I will focus
Babylon is located between two rivers,
Euphrates and Tigris,
in modern-day Iraq.
It lies 50 miles south of Baghdad,
not far from the Persian Gulf.
And it’s first introduction,
in the scripture,
is in Genesis 11 -
through the story
of the Tower of Babel.
After the flood,
the descendants of Noah,
became known as nations -
“All the nations of the earth.”
As the clans migrated,
to the East,
they found a plain
in the land of Babylonia,
and settled there.
At that time,
they all spoke the same language.
They prospered and worked together.
Their sole desire was to be famous
by building a tower to the sky.
In their hearts and their minds,
they were determined
to never again
be killed by a flood.
Hand in Hand,
they stood strong.
United as One
"United We Stand"
This was the foundation
that covered the land.
"Humanity not God"
was their great plan.
But then, God stepped in,
just in the nick of time.
it was not good,
so He found a way to divide men.
"But the Lord came down
to look at the city
and the tower the people were building.
"Look!" he said.
The people are united,
and they all speak the same language.
After this, nothing they set out to do
will be impossible for them!
Come, let's go down
and confuse the people with different languages.
They they won't be able to understand each other."
In that way, the Lord scattered them
all over the world,
and they stopped building the city.
That is why the city was called Babel,
because that is where the Lord
confused the people
with different languages.
In this way
he scattered them all over the world."
When He saw what people had done,
He realized that
nothing would stop humans
from trying to prevent their death.
Their desire to play God
was super strong,
a union of prideful humans
is exactly what God did not want.
This explains why God scattered
the nations all over the world?
This is why he does not want
the nations working together?
He put an end to Babylon,
so why is He allowing Him to come back?
This is the question I am pondering.
What do you think?
Do you think humans
are trying to recreate Babylon?
Do you think America
should stay connected
to the United Nations?
Do you think we are still a nation
who chooses the Lord?
Do you think we are still
One Nation Under God?
