One of the things that we can learn from the COVID-19 is that the worst place to be in is a city, and this is a hard lesson. Walid Shoebat recently spoke in a video showing the future destruction of cities:
“Though their waters roar and foam and the mountains quake in the surge.” (Psalms 46:3)
Therefore we will not fear,
though the earth is transformed
and the mountains are toppled
into the depths of the seas,
though their waters roar and foam
and the mountains quake in the surge.
There is a river whose streams delight the city of God,
the holy place where the Most High dwells.
God is within her; she will not be moved.
God will help her when morning dawns.
Nations rage, kingdoms crumble;
the earth melts when He lifts His voice.
The “waters” roaring are the revolutions that we see happening all around the world from the Arab Spring to rioting throughout Europe. God even gives you the explanation “the nations rage” and Christ warns that “nation will rise against nation” and Isaiah 19 warns of civil unrest where he specifically says that “neighbor” will fight “against neighbor”.
We are to witness civil unrest.
The world will become a havoc that John in Revelation 6 says that people will enter into caves and underground bunkers and shelters from the catastrophes to come:
“And the kings of the earth, and the great men, and the rich men, and the chief captains, and the mighty men, and every bondman, and every free man, hid themselves in the dens and in the rocks of the mountains”
And God warns His people:
“Come out of her, my people, so that you will not participate in her sinsand receive of her plagues” (Revelation 18:4)
Come out of what?
God warns of plagues and wrath that will hit all major cities:
“And there were noises and thunder and lightning; and there was a great earthquake, such a mighty and great earthquakeas had not occurred since men were on the earth. Now the great city was divided into three parts, and the cities of the nations fell. And great Babylonwas remembered before God, to give her the cup of the wine of the fierceness of His wrath.” (Revelation 16:18-19)
Most do not notice “and the cities of the nations fell” which is the destruction of every city.
“The great city was split into three parts, and the cities of the nations fell. Babylon the great was remembered before God, to give her the cup of the wine of His fierce wrath.” (Revelation 16:19)
This is Mystery Babylon the Great, the Mother of Harlots.
Revelation 11:8 gives us a clue:
“Their bodies will lie in the street of the great city, which is figuratively called Sodom and Egypt, where also their Lord was crucified.”
Jerusalem just before Christ comes is viewed by God as pagan Egypt and so are her daughters born of her. And it is not only the two witness who descend on this Egypt, but Christ Himself “will come into a world God calls Egypt”:
“The burden against Egypt. Behold, the Lord rides on a swift cloud, and will come into Egypt; The idols of Egypt will totter at His presence, And the heart of Egypt will melt in its midst.” (Isaiah 19:1)
God views the world today as syncretistic and pagan. And so we have so many verses applying to short term (ancient nations) and then long-term (today’s world).
Prophecy repeats and surprise us as they repeat. The historic ones seem to repeat so as to fulfill Solomon the Wise “What has beenwill be again, what has been donewill be done again; there is nothing new under the sun.” (ECC 1:9)
In other words ‘history repeats’.
Babylon ancient Egypt Sodom, they all repeat.
Apocalypse 11:8 being the literal “Jerusalem” and is called “Sodom” is a key to unravel this whole mystery to unlock our main prophetic puzzle that mystified scholars for centuries:
“Mystery, Babylon The Great, The Mother Of Harlots And Abominations Of The Earth”. (Revelation 17:5)
For centuries people ignore that she is “mother of harlots” (plural harlots). Your reductionism focused on who the mother is while ignoring her prostitute daughters. It is the whorehouse collectively rules all the kings of the earth.
So it is not only a revival of Babylon’s spiritual prostitution but spiritual prostitution with Sodom and the paganism of ancient Egypt.Today we see the world supporting Sodom and Ezekiel 16 warns:
“However, I will restore the fortunes of Sodomand her daughters
So here this entity of called Sodom and her daughters just like John calls Harlot Babylon with her daughters.
This is a conglomerate with several nations born of Jerusalem. It encompasses the entire regions of the world were Christianity, after being born of Jerusalem and today is turning to Sodom, Egypt and Babylon and is how God views it.
Ancient cataclysmic events repeat. From Babel and Sodom to Jerusalem surrounded by its enemies, it all repeats from ancient Israel from the seven-headed beasts to the seven eras of Christendom’s history. Unless we comprehend such repeats we can never comprehend these prophecies.
If the “mother of harlots” is a city than the daughters (plural) are several city-states. It is a corporate entity born of this one mother.
So when we read in Psalm 46 “Though their waters roar and foam and the mountains quake in the surge” it is speaking of this harlot:
The waters which you saw, where the harlot sits, are peoples, multitudes, nations, and tongues.(Revelation 17:15)
And how could “nations” here constitute a single city, especially when this harlot is composed of “peoples, multitudes, nations, and tongues” that is destroyed by the Antichrist who “made the world a wilderness and destroyed its cities”.
And Zechariah warns to leave these “lofty mountains which are towards the north” when he states:
“Come! Come! Flee from the land of the north,” declares the LORD, “for I have scattered you to the four winds of heaven,” declares the LORD. “Come, Zion! Escape, you who live in DaughterBabylon!” (Zechariah 2:7)
This “north” is but one daughter out of several daughters that constitutes this “Mystery Babylon the Great”.
And Isaiah 49 tells us where this is: “See, they will come from afar” which is distant lands “some from the north, some from the west, some from the region of Aswan” (Isaiah 49:12).
The northern hemisphere is included so is the West and so is the Middle East were “Aswan” is in today’s Egypt and the Coptic Christians will flee.
So when we read:
“Why are the nations in an uproar And the peoples devising a vain thing?” (Psalm 2:1)
We understand that the nations rage at Christ and His seed, that is the church.
Revelation 16:19 sums up the whole escapade; a parted city that constitutes or represents “the cities of the nations” ruled by Great Babylon. Jerusalem must be included, even likely a central headquarter and is why the city of His Crucifixion is called “Sodom and Egypt” because it is part of this harlot enterprise.
Therefore, Islam and Arabia are also included; the harlot city is split in three which encompases all three monotheistic religions turned into harlotry.
God is bringing His wrath on the peoples of all three monotheistic religions and gleaning only a converted remnant and die-hard non-conformists like Shadrach, Meshach and Abednego.
Revelation 17:5 tell us that “waters” and “rivers” represent peoples:
“And he says unto me, the waters which thou saw, where the whore sits, are peoples, and multitudes, and nations, and tongues.”
We find this revolt against God everywhere “Waters to boil” (nations rage).
And today we see the waters boiling and the mountains rage.
This is but a taste of what requires months of explanation.
How much time do you have.
Better yet: how much time is left?
