I have heard a lot people say that America is Babylon. I actually looked up the word Babylon the other day. It means confusion by mixing. I see that as mixing the things of God with the things of the world, as that causes much confusion.
I don’t believe that Babylon is a geographical location. I believe that Babylon dwells in the heart of each and every person on the planet. It’s the will of man, the flesh, the heart of stone, the line of Adam, the antichrist spirit… Whatever you want to call it, it’s the same thing. Only Christ is truth and every4hing apart from Him is confusion and lies (Babylon).
I believe a person is either in Babylon or in Christ.
The reason that Jesus calls his people out of voting is because all government is corrupt, the government in other countries is no different than the American government, because people are people, and without Christ the heart of man is completely corrupt. There may be different levels of corruption but everything apart from Christ is sin. The very core of each and every human being is sin. I think it was David who wrote we are born in sin and shaped in iniquity…
… That’s why Jesus came, and that’s why He died on the cross…
Nothing of the flesh (ourselves) pleases God… nothing… only Christ indwelling a person and changing them (not mixing [Babylon]… but Christ alone) is what God accepts.
I’ve been reading Isaiah lately and I have seen so many parallels to the Book of Rev…
And, behold, here cometh a chariot of men, with a couple of horsemen. And he answered and said, Babylon is fallen, is fallen; and all the graven images of her gods he hath broken unto the ground. Isaiah 21:9
I see Babylon falling as the old man falling away when a person is born again… satan is tossed off the throne… all the confusion and graven images being smashed and conquered by Christ when He indwells a person.
Babylon is fallen is a prophecy of what Christ does in the New Covenant.
Just sharing my thoughts.
