Babylon Rising.

It isn’t just Europe that is being troubled by the reckless and selfish policies spewing out of Mordor, but other nations just outside of her gaze too.

Afghan president Ashram Ghani - resisting Babylon’s call.

Afghan president Ashram Ghani fights to save his country from multiple threats, not least the decimation of his nation by a Western propaganda machine that seeks to draw not only those who he has invested hundreds of millions of dollars into training, but Afghan’s youth too. Other countries from Eastern Europe have expressed similar concerns as the cream of their nations are drawn away by the bright lights emanating out of Babylon’s tower, from which having penetrated the first heaven it now draws its power.

The first thing Nebuchadnezzar would do after conquering a nation was to fleece it of of its academia...

Daniel 1:3-4
3 - Then the king instructed Ashpenaz, the master of his eunuchs, to bring some of the children of Israel and some of the king’s descendants and some of the nobles,
4 - young men in whom there was no blemish, but good-looking, gifted in all wisdom, possessing knowledge and quick to understand, who had ability to serve in the king’s palace, and whom they might teach the language and literature of the Chaldeans.

...after which he came for the craftsmen.

2 Kings 24:14
Also he carried into captivity all Jerusalem: all the captains and all the mighty men of valour, ten thousand captives, and all the craftsmen and smiths. None remained except the poorest people of the land.

Today that spirit [Eph 2:2] does likewise, not only by military conquest but by craft also...

Daniel 8:25
“Through his cunning he shall cause deceit to prosper under his rule; and he shall exalt himself in his heart. He shall destroy many in their prosperity. He shall even rise against the Prince of princes; but he shall be broken without human means. [2 Thess 2:8]

Therefore we should realise that the lie currently proceeding out of Babylon [The EU] ‘that Mordor isn’t planning to exalt herself above the rest of the empire but prosper all’, is nothing but the dung to which the flies shall gather. Even a stinking heap upon which they having settled shall by their craft exalt to a worldly economic powerhouse to which the rest of the world shall not only look to attain their lusts, but worship.

Revelation 13:4
So they worshiped the dragon who gave authority to the beast; and they worshiped the beast, saying, “Who is like the beast? Who is able to make war with him?”

All the great men of the earth shall be found in Babylon on that day and those who hanker after her wares shall be destroyed with her, but God shall plead with the people as he pleaded with the Son-in-Laws of Lot but they would not listen [Gen 19:14]. But the believing shall escape, yet just as Lot’s wife whom having failed to sanctify her heart from the soaps, movies, gayeties [pun intended] and luxuries of that damnable place... many looking back upon their lusts shall fall even as they escape. [Matt 6:21]

Jeremiah 51:45
“My people, go out of the midst of her!
And let everyone deliver himself from the fierce anger of the Lord.”

Then let us who ‘believe’ work-out our own salvation with fear and trembling [Phil 2:12] by sanctifying [Jn 17:17] our hearts from her Babylonian exports of soaps, pornography, reality tv and the idolatries of an ‘entertainment’ industry so called which promotes the doctrines of demons. For I believe that there will be many whom having thought they had escaped the corruptions of Babylon shall discover too late that they had not been looking upon that city from afar as they had first thought, but rather had been gazing out from within just as God’s wrath falls.

2 Corinthians 13:5
Examine yourselves as to whether you are in the faith. Test yourselves. Do you not know yourselves, that Jesus Christ is in you?—unless indeed you are disqualified.

As the sight of a child mistreating his mother speaks volumes regarding character [Matt 7:16] so too grey-headed men fighting in the street over youthful lusts. Ageing mothers too whom colouring a hoary head are seen tottering from pub to club before youth in the hope of experiencing the rush of an adoration long lost [Pro 27:20] to their shame and their children’s confusion.

1 John 2:16-17
16 - For all that is in the world—the lust of the flesh, the lust of the eyes, and the pride of life—is not of the Father but is of the world.
17 - And the world is passing away, and the lust of it; but he who does the will of God abides forever.

Now if that is the way of a world we once knew [1 Cor 6:11] which is about to pass away, shouldn’t we who believe seek a maturity that brings peace rather than the lusts of a world that tends towards torment? [Rom 6:21]

Hebrews 5:12-14
12 - For though by this time you ought to be teachers, you need someone to teach you again the first principles of the oracles of God; and you have come to need milk and not solid food.
13 - For everyone who partakes only of milk is unskilled in the word of righteousness, for he is a babe.
14 - But solid food belongs to those who are of full age, that is, those who by reason of use have their senses exercised to discern both good and evil.

Again, I speak to myself as much as to the reader for the night beckons and summer is nearly ended my friend, yet many are still not saved [Jer 8:20]. The door of grace is about to close and in the darkness that will certainly follow only those who have gathered extra oil in their lamps during these final days of grace shall have enough to endure until Christ comes, the rest shall suffer wrath. [Matt 25:1-13 ]

Luke 21:36
“Watch therefore, and pray always that you may be counted worthy to escape all these things that will come to pass, and to stand before the Son of Man.”
