The literal Babylon of today is the territory of Iraq, and Iraq is part of the Arabian Federated Republics of the New World Order’s groupings of the ten kingdoms! In this light, today’s scripture text refers to the Battle of Armageddon! Nearer to the time of Isaiah writing this, Babylon was defeated by the Medes-Persians, which is modern day Iran! Iran is part of the Union of Soviet Socialists Republics of the New World Order’s grouping of the ten kingdoms! As the scripture says, this will be a global war where “tumultuous noise of the kingdoms of nations gathered together.” This will include the kingdom of the United States of America; which includes Mexico, Central America, Canada, Carribeans, Atlantic Islands, Greenland, Iceland, most Pacific Islands, Taiwan, Hainan, the Philippines. several Indonesian Islands, and Sulawesi. Iraq is an oil rich country and is a supplier to all the world! A very basic spirit in our faith in the Living God, through the Cross of Christ, is to love one another and not to let the covetousness of this world have dominion over our love for God. When the living God is rejected, the Message of the Cross of Christ is suppressed, and the Holy Spirit is opposed, then the world becomes ripe for the appearing of the anti-Christ and the Battle of Armageddon, which points to the return of our Lord Jesus Christ!
In a sense, the Battle of Armageddon is between the West and East, i.e. the United States of America fighting in a war involving the Union of Soviet Socialists Republics, Arabian Federated Republics, Hebrew Land (Israel), the Union of African Republics (includes Egypt), The Unite Republics of China (include Korea) etc. “For as the lightning comes out of the east, and shines even to the west; so shall also the coming of the Son of man be.” Matthew 24:27 We know half of the ten kingdoms of the New World Order has nuclear weapons, coming from all directions of the world! We know that the Bible tells us time and time again that we should shun the attitude of a worldly kingdom to fight for and to focus on the spiritual warfare that is won by the Spirit of Christ! We should keep in mind that Christ Jesus has already defeated Satan, the anti-Christ, and all the spiritual wickedness when He gave His life on the Cross.
In this paragraph, I’m simply going to copy and paste the scripture text for today, paraphrase it and add some comments! I’m doing this because it speaks for itself. This is about the burden of the East, which Isaiah the son of Amoz did see. Lift up a banner on the high mountain to make all nations aware and to raise your voice to the rest of the world and shake your fist at them. This display of deadly intent and challenge will enable to go into the gates of the nobles. “And I saw three unclean spirits like frogs come out of the mouth of the dragon, and out of the mouth of the false prophet. For they are the spirits of devils, working miracles, which go forth unto the kings of the earth and of the whole world, to gather them to the battle of that great day of God Almighty.” Revelation 16: 13-16.
I have commanded my sanctified ones, which would be those who have a dislike for the system of the anti-Christ and the New World Order. I have also called my mighty ones for mine anger , even them that rejoice in my highness. The noise of a multitude in the mountains, like as of a great people; a tumultuous noise of the kingdoms of nations gathered together: the Lord of hosts musters the host of the battle. They come from a far country, from the end of heaven, even the Lord, and the weapons of his indignation, to destroy the whole land.” The coming of our Lord Jesus Christ will happen to put a complete end to the Battle of Armageddon! The battle is won by our Lord Jesus Christ, not by any carnal or physical ability we have in this world! Our battle is not with flesh and blood, but with spiritual entities. We lay up treasures in the Kingdom of God, and are not attached to the kingdom of this world.
Revelation 19:11-21 “Then I saw heaven open. There before me was a white horse. The rider on the horse was called Faithful and True, because he is right in his judging and in making war. His eyes were like burning fire. He had many crowns on his head. A name was written on him, but he was the only one who knew its meaning. He was dressed in a robe dipped in blood, and he was called the Word of God. The armies of heaven were following the rider on the white horse. They were also riding white horses. They were dressed in fine linen, white and clean. A sharp sword came out of the rider’s mouth, a sword that he would use to defeat the nations. And he will rule the nations with a rod of iron. He will crush the grapes in the winepress of the terrible anger of God All-Powerful. On his robe and on his leg was written this name:” Revelation 19:11-16
As those born again at the Cross of Christ, we have a banner to lift up. That banner waves with the oil of the Holy Spirit that comes by the remission of sin, which is only possible when we welcome the Spirit of Christ to abide in our heart. We lift up our voices to make people aware that Christ Jesus is coming again and today is the time of Salvation. We have a Home prepared for us in the Kingdom of Heaven, but those living by the covetousness of the kingdom of this world will be eternally left in the fires of hell. When Christ Jesus returns to put an end to the Battle of Armageddon, we will be with Him as the sanctified ones, mighty in the faith of what Christ Jesus did for us on the Cross. We rejoice in the Righteousness of the Living God. We are gladly set apart from the violent and chaotic ways of this world as we joyfully await our Savior’s victorious return. We will return with Him in such a way that our multitudes upon multitudes of saints will look like clouds in the sky. We come from Heaven with Jesus Christ, we being there by benefit of the Rapture, with weapons of indignation to defeat the whole land!
Believe in your heart and confess with your mouth that Jesus Christ is Lord!
