WE TURN TO THE SUBJECT ‘WITH VIOLENCE SHALL BABYLON BE CAST DOWN. ‘REVELATION, CHAPTER 17 AND 18, contains so much in the content of God’s word concerning Great Babylon. We understand that great Babylon was at one time a great city. And we understand that Mystery Babylon the Great, was the enemy of Israel, this Kingdom of God. Babylon had a powerful and highly organized system of administration. It was a city that worshipped Baal, for the priesthood was involved in all the politics of Babylon, and had ruled over all the ancient world at one time in its history. And in the areas of its trade it gained control over the nations of the world. It established its vital power of usury and extended its authority into the ends of the earth. In fact, in all history, God looked upon Babylon as the most evil of all the most vital powers. So God declared its destruction, and Daniel, when a captive in that land, described how Medo-Persia would be the power to break down Great Babylon.
You can turn to the book of Jeremiah, and read: ‘the portion of Jacob is not like unto these brutish nations in their vanity and their work of error. HE is before all things, and Israel is the rod of HIS inheritance, the LORD of Hosts is HIS name.’
