Solving the Mystery of Babylon The Great
Babylon within the Bible
Before we unravel the "Mystery of Babylon," as described in Revelation 17:5:
“And upon her forehead was a name written, MYSTERY, BABYLON THE GREAT, THE MOTHER OF HARLOTS AND ABOMINATIONS OF THE EARTH.”
We must start at the very beginning.
We all know the story of the great flood that took place during the time of Noah. All of the inhabitants of the earth were destroyed, save the eight human souls who were in the Ark, along with the creatures of every kind. After the waters receded, God blessed Noah and his sons:
Genesis 9:1 And God blessed Noah and his sons, and said unto them, Be fruitful, and multiply, and replenish the earth.
And replenish the earth they did.
They grew into a great multitude of people, and they all spoke the same language. The name of the land was Babylon. The people of Babylon decided to build a tower that would reach up into the heavens.
And they said one to another, Go to, let us make brick, and burn them thoroughly. And they had brick for stone, and slime had they for morter. Genesis 11:3
According to Strong's Concordance, the word "slime," from the above verse means:
- 1) slime, pitch, asphalt, bitumen
- bitumen (as rising to the surface):--slime(-pit).
It's interesting to note that the mortar that they used to hold the bricks together was slime that came rises to the surface of a tar pit.
Tar is a dark brown or black viscous liquid of hydrocarbons and free carbon, obtained from a wide variety of organic materials through destructive distillation. Mineral products resembling tar can be produced from fossil hydrocarbons, such as petroleum. Coal tar is produced from coal as a byproduct of coke production.
Oil is one of the most valuable resources on earth. Entire nations have gained great wealth through vast amounts of oil found in different parts of the world. Wars have been fought with massive amounts of lives lost throughout the centuries in order to overtake lands that are rich with oil.
The bible says that the "love of money is the root of all evil." Money itself isn't evil, but the absolute love and trust in money turns hearts away from the truth. Scriptures warn about many different materialistic things that we should not trust or depend on. Money is one of those things.
When God saw the work that the people of Babylon were doing as they built the tower, he said:
And the LORD said, Behold, the people is 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. Genesis 11:6
To understand the above verse, the word, "imagined," was used even before the great flood. The people of Babylon were one, and were in agreement with everything they "imagined," to do.
To put this into context, we must look back at exactly what God said before the great flood.
And God saw that the wickedness of man was great in the earth, and that every imagination of the thoughts of his heart was only evil continually. Genesis 6:5
This is precisely what led to the great flood. The same chapter, (Genesis 6) that describes "the imagination of the thoughts of their hearts," begins with speaking about how the people began to multiply on the face of the earth.
This led to the total destruction of the earth through the great flood. At the tower of Babel, God separated all of the people. If the whole world were to once again form a world of "one people and one language," it would be done by Satan, who is a liar and a murderer.
After the flood during Noah's time, when the earth was replenished, the people came together to build their tower as one people and with one language. God spoke of the "imagination," of their hearts, just as He did before the flood. That very day God divided the people into their own nations and gave them their own languages.
Therefore is the name of it called Babel; because the LORD did there confound the language of all the earth: and from thence did the LORD scatter them abroad upon the face of all the earth. Genesis 11:9
The Tower of Babel
Building Towers in Parables
Jesus spoke about "building," a tower:
And whosoever doth not bear his cross, and come after me, cannot be my disciple.
For which of you, intending to build a tower, sitteth not down first, and counteth the cost, whether he have sufficient to finish it? Luke 14:27-28
He spoke this parable in context involving who are His true disciples. The tower He spoke of was about building the church by the truth and revelation given through the Holy Spirit to those who build on the sure foundation. God is the master builder. Even when the wilderness temple was built during the time of Moses, God gave gifts of knowledge and understanding to the builders.
Even Ezekiel saw this "spiritual tower,"
And there was an enlarging, and a winding about still upward to the side chambers: for the winding about of the house went still upward round about the house: therefore the breadth of the house was still upward, and so increased from the lowest chamber to the highest by the midst. Ezekiel 41:7
The measurements were so precise, and the descriptions so clear that God didn't leave one part of the temple unmeasured or unchecked.
God's word is preserved, and it is precise. In Christ through the understanding given to us by the Holy Spirit, there is a proper way to build a church that increases "upward," like the increase that led up through the levels of the temple that Ezekiel saw in his vision.
There are also towers and buildings mentioned within the scriptures that come crashing down.
Here are just a few examples:
And there shall be upon every high mountain, and upon every high hill, rivers and streams of waters in the day of the great slaughter, when the towers fall. Isaiah 30:25
There were present at that season some that told him of the Galilaeans, whose blood Pilate had mingled with their sacrifices. And Jesus answering said unto them, Suppose ye that these Galilaeans were sinners above all the Galilaeans, because they suffered such things? I tell you, Nay: but, except ye repent, ye shall all likewise perish. Or those eighteen, upon whom the tower in Siloam fell, and slew them, think ye that they were sinners above all men that dwelt in Jerusalem? Luke 13:1-4
This has everything to do with leaning on the understanding that comes only from God, and not our own understanding, and not the understanding of man.
Jesus gave this parable to those who would hear:
Therefore whosoever heareth these sayings of mine, and doeth them, I will liken him unto a wise man, which built his house upon a rock: And the rain descended, and the floods came, and the winds blew, and beat upon that house; and it fell not: for it was founded upon a rock. And every one that heareth these sayings of mine, and doeth them not, shall be likened unto a foolish man, which built his house upon the sand: And the rain descended, and the floods came, and the winds blew, and beat upon that house; and it fell: and great was the fall of it. Matthew 7:24-27
The New World Order
The Globalist Babylonian System At Work
It's apparent to most that something in our world today is just not right.
Politicians are pushing for laws that allow for infants to be destroyed even after being born alive. Virginia Gov Ralph Northam promoted Infanticide, and days later a photo from his high school yearbook exposed a young Mr Northam dressed in blackface standing next to another young man dressed in a complete Klan garb.
In New York, Governor Cuomo signed a bill into law allowing women to abort babies up to the very last minute before the child would be born.
During the same week, Nancy Pelosi and other democrats had the most important words removed from the oath that every politician swears to before taking positions as representatives for the people who elected them. The words removed were, "So help me God."
In doing so, these politician openly turned their backs on God.
Within days of doing this during a press conference, Nancy Pelosi spoke of her "favorite bible passage," and the words that she spoke are not in the Bible at all!
There is a huge amount of deception happening right now. Jesus said that we shall know them by their fruits.
In 2018, John Kerry, The former Secretary of State during the Obama administration, was speaking with world leaders telling them to "wait Trump out." As though Obama were still in some position of power, and slowing their New World Order plans.
Ex-President Obama and John Kerry have been taking trips around the world, talking with world leaders.
Just last week, John Carry made a public statement during a news interview, when asked what his response would be to President Trump's policies
"What would your message be?" CNBC's Tania Bryer, the panel's moderator, asked.
"Resign," Kerry replied. His response drew some laughter and applause from the audience
The fact that the audience laughed and applauded shows the insane level of blindness many seem to be infected with today.
The democrats are pushing for open borders, even against the will of the majority of the American people.
While illegal immigrants are flowing into our nation, the democrats are working hard to remove the Constitutional Electoral Collage in favor of a "popular vote." At the same time, many are pushing for non-Americans who are in our nation illegally, to have the "right," to vote in our Presidential elections.
Though President Trump is working hard for the American people. Obama's New World order plan is pushing forward as he leads the shadow government and millions of mindless people into the Satanic plan for the Babylonian New World Order.
If you don't believe that Obama is still organizing protests and action to fight against the current administration and the will of the American people. I encourage you to do some research. Look into a group called, "Organizing for Action." Former President Obama's face is on their home page. It's also the exact same photo he uses as the header on his twitter channel.
If that isn't enough to convince any naysayer. Stop and look around at what is happening around the world.
The mainstream media has failed to report on the 12 weeks of "yellow vest" protesters in France who are currently fighting for their rights. The police being used to halt these protesters are violent and cruel. There have been several deaths among the protesters. Some have lost eyes and limbs. There is video evidence of French police beating elderly, disabled and young people.
If we, as a nation do not begin paying attention to all of these things happening here at home, and around the world. We will no longer be a nation.
France is on the verge of a Civil war. I'm certain that the deep state within our own nation is driving us in the same direction.
They are using the mainstream media to divide Americans. They are pushing for racial division and unrest in our own nation.
They are organizing and encouraging people to flow to our Southern border in mass numbers to cause disruption, and enticing them with the promise of "free stuff."
Nothing is free, not even in the USA. What these political hacks are actually doing is using our tax dollars to draw people by the millions into our nation. The democrats have lost the American people, so they are importing voters while they work to change American voting laws.
The "Border Crisis," is 100% on the hands of the Democrat and RINO politicians.
When anyone who arrives at our border with children who are not theirs, the MSM reports that "children are being ripped away from their parents, by President Trump!" When a child is ill or worse, the MSM turns it into an anti President Trump news story that lasts for weeks.
Those who are still not convinced. I encourage you to do a "Fact Check," to see that ex-President Obama literally released "border children," to known child traffickers.
(Link to Snopes Fact Check Added Below.)
It's becoming very clear that everything that the mainstream media is reporting about how horrible President Trump is, it is actually the democrats deflecting their own cruelty and crime onto the current POTUS. They want him out of office so they can push forward with their Satanic New World Order.

Tactics of the New World Order Operatives
Some of the Tactics being used to Bring in the New World Order
- Education: Today the educational system in the USA has removed, not only the bible and all mention of God, but also historical facts about how the United States of America was formed. If children are not taught about the actual history of our nation, and their rights as American citizens, it makes things much easier for the deep state globalists to take their freedoms away from them.
- Entertainment: Today there is a clear and open hatred towards Christians. Why? Because the Globalists know that Christians who abide in Christ Jesus are their greatest threat. Unfortunately, many of our young people are falling for the anti-Christ system that is being fed to every single individual in our nation through entertainment, television, and Hollywood.
- Normalization of Wickedness: One cannot turn on a television sitcom and not see that every bit or entertainment involves everything that God calls and abomination. The same programs mock God continuously. Abortion is being pushed to levels that were unthinkable just ten years ago. There is even talk of eugenics, where people over the age of 80 would have the option of being euthanized. This is exactly the way Nazi Germany operated.
- Making American Symbolism "offensive," such as the American flag. Children in public schools are not allowed to wear patriotic clothing, and the mainstream media has convinced millions of Americans, that the red MAGA hats, or akin to Klan attire. Any sign of patriotism, no matter what color the person's skin, is now being called "racist."
"One Nation, under God, indivisible with liberty and justice for all," Is becoming, "One broken Nation, without God, divisible by race, with no liberty or justice, for anyone" other than those whom the deep state corrupt politicians deem it to be for!
There absolutely can be no unity when the government and educational system constantly pushes division. The American flag has always represented our freedoms and the millions of Americans of all races, who have fought and died in battles since the Revolutionary war.
A house divided will fall! Jesus said so, and we are seeing it. The deep state, with the help of the mainstream media, is driving a wedge between the American people that is causing so much damage that it's reaching the point of becoming irreparable.
The New World Order is a system that is built on lies. Leaders are promising a Socialistic paradise where the poor are promised free money that will be taken from the wealthy. When it comes to our government, "wealthy," is a relative term. In a socialistic run government, the first to leave will be the most wealthy, and it will trickle down the line until middle class America is considered to be the "wealthy," people who will support those who are unwilling to work. That plan never has worked out well in any nation. Those who work will very quickly see that they may as well stop working and get free stuff along with all those who really pushed hard for socialism. When the money runs out things get very ugly. In Venezuela, the financial situation became so bad, that nobody could afford food. The people were forced to dig through trash to find anything to eat. Some even ate their family pets and animals that were stolen from zoos and eaten. Hunger and starvation leads to unimaginable suffering and desperate measures.
New York is already making such promises, and have raised taxes so high that the most wealthy are literally leaving the state. The same thing would happen around the country if Socialism were to take hold. Those who work hard will not stay and work only to hand over their hard earned money to those who refuse to work.
Socialism is not the actual end of what the Deep State or (Shadow Government) has planned for the United States of America. It's just the beginning. Once the entire world is under the control of the Satanic Globalists, then all hell will break lose on earth like nothing that has ever been seen before, nor shall ever be seen again.
It's time to wake up.
If you do not believe in God almighty, I encourage you to reconsider. Just take a look around at what is currently happening in the world and if you are honest, you'll see that it is pure evil.
If you are a believer and follower of Christ. Pray without ceasing, the times we are in filled with an evil that wishes to bring total destruction of YOU and me.

Hi Betty A F,
Everything you've said I totally agree with and as you say so many are just not seeing what is written in scripture.
I too, am in no way looking forward to what is coming but if we just continue to cling to Him no matter what - that's all that matters.
And may God bless you too Betty.
Again my best regards,
Betty A F (author) from Florida on April 02, 2019:
Thank you for your considerate reply.
I do agree with you
It's shocking, and unreal that so many seem to not be seeing what's taking place.
I also believe that it will get worse. The very people who are fighting for the enemy will be the first affected by their own blindness.
I do not look forward to what's just ahead, but I look forward to what follows.
Thankfully, we know the end of the story.
God bless you.
Jack Jenn from Nelson Bay NSW Australia. on March 19, 2019:
Hi Betty A F,
Again, good to see you have a good grip on the the things that are soon to befall us.......
And yes it is important that we keep watching from a spiritual perspective - of which so many are blind to. Satan has them comfortably asleep and unless they wake up, sadly they will all be caught unaware.
Unfortunately, there is very little you or I can do about it except to keep clinging to Jesus and live it before them, that is our hope in this perishing world.
I agree with everything you've said in this and the other article I commented on and please, try not to get too hung up on the things that are presently happening, which will only get worse as the day draws closer.
I appreciate the fact that you are trying to warn others but they have eyes and a brain - if they are blind to it and still refuse to turn, nothing we can do will change that. The 4 points you mention are shocking indeed but it's just the start of much worse to come.
I like where you said, "If you do not believe in God almighty, I encourage you to reconsider." That is all we can do and hope that some will change their ways and repent and turn again while Jesus' hand is still outstretched in love.
We know enough from scripture to understand the things that are coming all too soon and Matthew 6: 25 - 34 tells us that God will provide in a way known only to Him and I think it is deliberately veiled but I particularly like verses 33 and 34.
Sincerely Betty, I hope you will continue to read ichthys.com and if it's meaningful to you, please, encourage others to visit it.
Will make this do for now and again, my best regards,
