Blessed be the name of YAHUWAH ELSHADDAI, and may HE grant us all peace of mind and spirit through Christ Yahushua, Amen. My dear brethren,i pray thee all not to be of this mindset, let's take a brief look at this, why did Revelation speak specifically of Babylon and not some former world power like Egypt or Assyria or even a prerent world as Rome was at the time of its writing. I am really tired of arguments,i pray the holy spirit would convince us of the truth when the time comes. Shalom

I believe that the reason it is called Babylon and not Egypt or Assyria or Rome, goes back to the story of the tower of Babel. The story of the "Tower of Babel" (in Genesis 11) tells how the earth was all one language, and how the people built a tower:

Genesis 11:4 And they said, "Go to, let us build us a city and a tower, whose top may reach unto heaven; and let us make us a name, lest we be scattered abroad upon the face of the whole earth."

Genesis 11:5 And YHWH came down to see the city and the tower, which the children of men built. 6 And YHWH said, "Behold, the people are one, and they have all one language; and this they begin to do: and now nothing will be restrained from them, which they have imagined to do. 7 Go to, let us go down, and there confound their language, that they may not understand one another's speech." 8 So YHWH scattered them abroad from thence upon the face of all the earth: and they left off to build the city. 9 Therefore is the name of it called Babel; because YHWH did there confound the language of all the earth: and from thence did YHWH scatter them abroad upon the face of all the earth.

The United States is made up of descendents from all these nations. They have come together and again have one language.

That is one of the reasons I believe that it is called Babylon.

Revelation chap.17 is declaring Two "Babylon's". Here is what Scripture and History say about the First Babylon: The "Mother of Harlots". These Two Babylon's appear at two different times during earth's history. Both Babylon's are depicted "riding on the Dragon" (satan's System). In the following verses, in chapter 17, we are reading about "History". Please read:

In verse 3 we read that the dragon on which she is sitting has "seven heads and ten horns". Verses 5 - 11 is revealing the "First Babylon". She is called "the Mother of Harlots", she is guilty of drinking the blood of the saints during the Early Christian Church period. Verse 9 tells us the "seven heads" are "seven mountains" (hills) where she is sitting. These were speaking of the Seven Hills of Rome.

Verse 10 says "there are "Seven Kings". These Kings were the great Caesars of Rome. The angel tells John that "Five" have already fallen. These were 1.Caesar Augustus, 2.Caesar Tiberius, 3.Caesar Caligula, 4.Caesar Claudius I, 5. Caesar Nero.

Verse 10 the angel says "one is" (this is the 6th), this is Caesar Vespasian that was reigning while John is receiving this prophetic message on the isle of Patmos.

Verse 10 the angel says "the other (the 7th Caesar) is not yet come, and when he comes he will continue a short space (time). Caesar Titus reigned in Rome only from 79 A.D. - 81 A.D. Less than 2 years!

Verse 11 the angel says "the Beast that was, and is not, even he is the eighth". The 8th Caesar in Rome was Caesar Domitian. He is known for his extreme reign of Terror and Tyranny, especially against the Christians. He demanded worship as a god, and anyone who did not was put to death. His reign was not only a Tyranny for Christians, but also for Rome itself. It was so bad, that after his death (his own wife had him strangled during his sleep), Rome itself, formally damned his reign as Casaer.

Revelation 17: 12 begins speaking about the "Second Babylon" and the "Second Beast" : the angel tells John "the Ten Horns which you saw are Ten kings, which have received no kingdom as yet. These are the 10 king coalition that make up the "last kingdom on earth"; these are the "10 toes" of the statue of Daniel 2: 42-44. When Messiah comes again, these are the "10" that are smashed by the "rock" of our salvation!

Verse 12 They receive power for only "one hour" with the Last Day Beast.

Verse 13 These "10 kings" "give their power and strength to the Beast". They are of "one mind" in their efforts.

Verse 14 these 10 kings , along with the Beast "make war with the Lamb; and the Lamb Overcomes them!" The Remnant are "Called, Chosen (vessels), Faithful" to YHWH !

Verse 15 the angel says, "the waters which you saw...... are peoples, multitudes, nations and tongues (languages). It is denoting a multi-nation "Global System". The angel says this is where the "Whore sits". This is important, because today we have a "Global System" and it is called the "United Nations".

Verse 16 tells us that the "10 Kings" hate the whore (Babylon) and "burn her with fire".

Verse 17 It is YHWH that has put this into their hearts - a "Divine Punishment" for her great "Global Influence" of idolatry on earth.

Verse 18 tells us "where" the Whore sits the globe. "The Woman (Babylon) which you saw IS that "Great City" which reigns over the kings of the earth." The Greek words used in this text for "great" and "city" is what we use today "Megalopolis" - denotes a heavily populated area on the globe that includes many cities within it's boundaries.

Where is the "Largest" Megalopolis on the globe today? On the north eastern seaboard of the United States! Where the "United Nations" Headquarters is sitting!

There are more languages spoken in that area of the U.S., than anywhere else in the world. The United Nations is there, with Embassy's representing more than 200 nations.

If you live in the north eastern megalopolis area - you must heed the Command of YHWH ! "Come Out of Her MY People" (Rev. 18:4). That area is now under "Divine Judgement" and will be destroyed by the 10 Kings in the not so distant future.

When it comes to prophecy, things are not always as they appear. Where it says "great city" in Revelation 17:18, it could actually be talking about an entire nation.

May the peace of our master Christ Yahushua be multiplied unto you. Thanks for your comment,actually, i agree with you that the united states happen to have quite her share of trangression, but try to reason little along with me for according the scriptures, 'when you see the increase in lawlessness, do not be dismayed because that means their destruction speedily cometh'. However, I would rather compare America to Sodom & Gommorah,and we all know what her end was. Peace to you all.

Shalom all who thirst for tsedeq (righteousness).In regards to chukwudozie uche, YirmeYahu 50:40-42 links Sodom and Gomorrah to the end time Babylon "the daughter of Babylon".

Conclusion,when he said 'come out of her my people lest you partake of her cup of wrath' it could only mean that you should come out of the world and keep yourselves set-apart in the fear of YAHUWAH, keeping yourselves from physical and spiritual uncleanness and maybe He will graciously pardon and welcome us. Blessed be the name of YAHUWAH NOW AND FOREVERMORE, Amen

Shalom chukwudozie uche,

I agree that the most important thing for YHWH's people is to accept Yahushua as their master and redeemer, and to follow the commandments of YAHUWAH (see Jer 7:23; Mat 5:17-20).

That being said, there does seem to be a physical Babylon (Babylon the Great) spoken of in the Word of YHWH, that goes hand in hand with Revelation chapter 18...

Isaiah 13:19 - And Babylon, the splendor of kingdoms, the beauty of the Chaldeans' pride, shall be as when Elohim overthrew Sodom and Gomorrah.

Sodom and Gomorrah was destroyed because of immorality...

Genesis 13:13 But the men of Sodom were wicked and sinners before YHWH exceedingly.

Most will probably agree that Babylon represents the false religions of the world. YHWH wants his people to come out of all false religions.

In the United States, there is a monument called the "Statue of liberty." The statue of liberty is actually an image of the idol "Ishtar," also know as "The Queen of Heaven" (see Jer 44:17-19).

Ishtar is an ancient Babylonian deity, and represents all the false religions of the world (see Who is the whore of Revelation 17?).

Besides Revelaion 18:4, here are some more scriptures speaking of coming out of Babylon before her destruction...

Isaiah 48:20 - Go ye forth of Babylon, flee ye from the Chaldeans, with a voice of singing declare ye, tell this, utter it even to the end of the earth; say ye, "YHWH hath redeemed his servant Jacob."

Jeremiah 50:8 - Remove out of the midst of Babylon, and go forth out of the land of the Chaldeans, and be as the he goats before the flocks.

Jeremiah 51:6 - Flee out of the midst of Babylon, and deliver every man his soul: be not cut off in her iniquity; for this is the time of YHWH's vengeance; he will render unto her a recompense.

Jeremiah 51:45 - My people, go ye out of the midst of her, and deliver ye every man his soul from the fierce anger of YHWH.

Jeremiah 51:50 - Ye that have escaped the sword, go away, stand not still: remember YHWH afar off, and let Jerusalem come into your mind.

Revelation 18:5... For her sins have reached unto heaven, and YHWH hath remembered her iniquities.

Jeremiah 51:9 - We would have healed Babylon, but she is not healed: forsake her, and let us go every one into his own country: for her judgment reacheth unto heaven, and is lifted up even to the skies.

Blessed be the name of YAHUWAH ELSHADAI, who because of his awesome love provided for us a wonderful ransom,his very firstborn,YAHUSHUA whom he anointed, even putting his very HOLY NAME in him,cos there is no other name by which we might be saved. Peace to you all. Concerning the interesting subject:BABYLON THE GREAT, i would like that it may come to your attention that its appearance in Revelation as a prophecy shouldn't be puzzling. Let me explain, Babylon happenned to be the exile state of the captured southern israel nation. Let's pause there for a moment. So for Babylon to appear in the Revelation of John isn't a coincedence in the sense that it states a certain/specific state of things, the people asked to flee must be in a state of captivity. Now let's take it up a notch, christ said 'he who sins is a captive of sin' now what is sin(answer?).NOW lets take it up a little, Satan the Devil, pause,DEVIL literally means DECEIVER, christ called him the father of all liars:paul made a comment once about satan deceiving the whole world and also the whole world being in the grip of the wicked one,meaning only one thing, 'causing the whole world to trangress/offend/sin against YAHUWAH'.NOW PAUSE A LITTLE,meaning that the whole world is in captivity. NOW PLEASE PAUSE, GO BACK TO YOUR CLOSET AND FAST AND PRAY THAT YOU MAY BE SPARED OF THE WRATH OF YAH CAUSE WE ARE ONLY SAVED BY GRACE AND I REPEAT, BY GRACE ALONE. SHALOM

I first became conscious of the Name Jesus in 1982 when my father used it at the end of the morning prayer.I realised the name was important because all the adults in our home used it at the end of their prayers.I am shocked to learn that i have spent the past 31 years of my life calling upon a Greek deity while fooling myself that i was calling upon the Lamb of God who was slain for the redemption of mankind.I have more than 10 bibles of different translations and christian books using the name Jesus (Gee Zeus).How could such a major error have been allowed to continue?I believe the church will need to withdraw all bibles containg this pagan name if there is genuine repentance and if restoration is to take place.I find that when i try to use the Name Yahushua the Jesus keeps creeping back.CAN ONE FIND THE HARD COPY OF THE RESTORED KING JAMES VERSION IN THE MARKET TO BUY?

Shalom all,

I do believe that the United States is Babylon the Great, and that it is YAHUWAH's desire for his people to flee and to come out of her (Jeremiah 51:6-9; Revelation 18:4).

However, I also believe that to flee Babylon without having Yahushua the Messiah is futile! The most important thing for everyone is to follow Yahushua the Messiah, the son of YAHUWAH...

John 3:17-21
17 For YHWH sent not his Son into the world to condemn the world; but that the world through him might be saved.
18 He that believes on him is not condemned: but he that believes not is condemned already, because he has not believed in the name of the only begotten Son of YHWH.
19 And this is the condemnation, that light is come into the world, and men loved darkness rather than light, because their deeds were evil.
20 For every one that does evil hates the light, neither comes to the light, for fear that his works should be exposed.
21 But he that does truth comes to the light, that his deeds may be made manifest, that they are done in Elohim (YHWH).

Grace to you all in the name of YAHUWAH'S ANOINTED, our Lord YAHUSHUA. In the event of my reading through the discourses concerning the flee babylon documentary; i wasn't glad in my spirit reading the reaction of some of the contributors. My brethrens, if not for anything, should we start repeating what some among the congregation of israel did by doubting YAHUWAH to the extent of insulting him with mere food in the wilderness. Some of you are doubting whether YAHUWAH would really save,haven't you read the story about LOT. Far be it from the ALMIGHTY to act unrighteously even YAH to destroy the righteous with the wicked. YOU SHOULD RATHER BE EXAMINING YOURSELVES TO KNOW WHETHER YOU ARE STILL IN THE FAITH. Nevertheless, you should be on the watch,always willing to listen to the holy spirit, knowing fully well that YAHUWAH ELSHADDAI is the great law giver and every of his word is refined.So dear brethrens, do not be of a fearful heart. But keep on growing in the wisdom and knowledge of YAH, always submitting yourselves wholesouled to doing his will always. SHALOM

Here is a video concerning a new documentary entitled, "Jihad in America, the Grand Deception"

21st April 2013 8:54am
Ginny Lindsay (Paris, US)
Before our president was given his now second term, he said something very disturbing: "elect me again and I will finish the job". Has anyone thought about what he was saying? Who was he talking to? Most Americans haven't a clue about what he meant.

American leaders (along with other western leaders) have been in the process, since the 1960's, of setting up the "One World Order" - the U.N. The "World Federalist Movement" is the predominate driving force behind the Humanist agenda within the U.N.- Abortion, Evolution, homosexual rights...and much more to come. Recently the U.N. gave permission to "denounce religion" (all religions) on the globe. The spirit of antiChrist is the U.N. Agenda. Rev.18 tells us that the kings of the earth are committing fornication (spiritual idolatry) with her. By serving the god of wealth, they are selling out their own nations and peoples to the U.N. agenda. The "lawless one" is coming! America(Babylon) believes she will continue to sit reigning on top of this One World System - but instead, Rev.17 (last part) & prophecies of Daniel tell us that 10 kings (having formed an alliance secretly against her) will "burn her with fire". A new world headquarters is to be established for the One World Order having the "feet (foundation) of a bear" - Russia (Rev.13). Fulfilling the saying "one of his heads is wounded to death, but the deadly wound was healed and all the world wondered after the Beast". The present new immigration laws, which will open the U.S. border with Mexico is the beginning of the North American Union - and the soon to be collapsed, American dollar. To all who are looking with "open eyes" - all this is a fulfillment of prophecy written 2000 yrs ago by John! Many will hear this and refuse it - just as Israel (in O.T. times) refused to hear the prophecies that were foretold against them - and so few were actually saved. So it will be concerning the foretelling of the destruction of Babylon which sits on our own eastern seaboard where the U.N. headquarters is now sitting. The 2nd Angel of Rev.14:8 is now sounding - but who is hearing it?

Here is an interesting video (in the news) concerning Islam and current events. Could this have anything to do with the destruction of Babylon (america)?

Does scripture warn about 12th Imam?

For more information about the 12th Imam and how it might be connected to the book of Revelation, watch the following video. This is an excerpt from a Glenn Beck Program that aired (on Fox News channel) on Feb. 17th, 2011.

It starts out talking about how Iran is in the middle of the unrest in the middle east. Glenn Beck then (at 21 minutes) interviews two men (Joel Richardson, author of "The Islamic Antichrist" and Zudi Jaser, a practicing muslim). The interview has to do with Islam and how it relates to the Beast of Revelation (we strongly advise watching it).

Truly YHWH has been faithful, i live in Nigeria, and i wonder if you have any organised fellowship where one can worship and truly practice what YHWH's Laws require us to do in our worship, such as the statue that states that "Three times a year must you appear before me" and stuffs like that because i can't really continue like this without any association with anyone with the same mindset as i am, thanks to your precious documentaries which i readily consume anytime i have an internet connection. I truly rejoice in my spirit anytime i find such opportunity cos i truly can now understand how Lot must have felt in that wicked city(Sodom & Gommorah) contending with his spirit every day with such evil every here and there. so if you really can send back a newsletter if possible to my email account i would truly appreciate.Thank you, and may YAHUWAH continue to sustain and uphold us all as we thrive to do his will, Amen. All glory to our Lord and saviour Christ Yahushua through the grace of Yah our father. Grace and love to you all. Shalom

Oh, how i love the gathering of the brethren.Truly, your messages have proven to be a light in the gloom and darkness of our days on this wicked world. I truly appreciate for your sharing of such profound truth, even so boldly. May Yah bless and sustain you.I would love to know if there is any place where people of such mindset as you do gather for worship because i really feel so choked up without any fellowship for so long, as i have made a personal vow not to listen to all the lies and worthless utterances of the so called churches all around me. Please, reply if possible, as soon as you wish
