UNDERSTANDING MYSTERY BABYLON

Dr. Nelson Walters is a leading prophecy teacher through his popular YouTube channel. He is also a regular speaker at conferences, and the author of such books as, Are We Ready For Jesus, Revelation Deciphered, Rapture: Case Closed? and the revolutionary 70 Times 7.

Jake McCandless of Prophecy Simplified (Connecting end-times prophecy with everyday life) interviews Nelson on the events unfolding with the World Economic Forum and the United Nations and how this could lead to the One World Government prophesied in Scripture. They also discuss its relevance to Mystery Babylon and the appearance of the Antichrist. This is new Revelation for Nelson and certainly for most of us that hold to the Antichrist coming out of a Muslim nation.

REMINDER OF JESUS SOON COMING RETURN

In an emotional address before the United Nations (U.N.) Security Council this week, Ukraine’s President Volodymyr Zelensky said the U.N. world body was worth less than “a hill of beans” for its inability to act decisively in deterring Russian atrocities in his nation. The U.N. charter commits itself to maintain international peace and security but again has shown utter incapability to preserve world order. Russia sits as a permanent member of the U.N. Security Council and has since the organization was founded in 1945.

Outside the United Nations Building in New York City stands a famous statue of a man with a hammer beating a sword into a plowshare. The name of the statue is “Let Us Beat Swords Into Plowshares.” It’s a symbol of peace. The concept is taken from the book of Isaiah which speaks of a time to come when Jesus Christ returns to earth to establish the Kingdom of God. Nations shall go to Jerusalem to learn the ways of God. It says,

He shall judge between the nations, and rebuke many people; They shall beat their swords into plowshares, and their spears into pruning hooks; Nation shall not lift up sword against nation, neither shall they learn war anymoreIsaiah 2:4

This should be a reminder to all world leaders that Jesus Christ is coming back to earth to establish His Millennial Kingdom. Jesus will rule and reign on this earth with resurrected Saints for one thousand years. Satan is bound in the Abyss for that time but at the end of the thousand years, he is released and sadly is still able to deceive a multitude of people.

And when the thousand years are ended, Satan will be released from his prison and will come out to deceive the nations that are at the four corners of the earth, Gog and Magog, to gather them for battle; their number is like the sand of the sea.” Revelation 20:7

The Bible is replete with fulfilled Biblical prophecies both about Jesus first coming to earth and many more about His soon coming return to earth. To my mind, these Biblical prophecies should be enough to convince any reasoning skeptic.

CELESTIAL SIGNS WILL SIGNIFY JESUS RETURN

In Acts 2, the apostle Peter explains that a new period in redemption (i.e. the beginning of the church age) occurs at Pentecost with the Spirit’s supernatural outpouring. But a lot of interpreters miss that Peter’s citation of Joel 2, and its celestial disturbances event linked to the great and magnificent Day of the Lord, gives us a clue to the completion of the church age.

Jesus confirms the same celestial signs in the Olivet discourse (Matt. 24, Mark 13, Luke 21) signaling His return to raise believers from the dead and to rapture the remaining Saints prior to pouring out His wrath on the unrepentant with the Trumpet (Rev. 8,11) and Bowl judgments (Rev.16).

Peter’s citation:

Joel 2:31

“‘And in the last days it shall be, God declares, that I will pour out my Spirit on all flesh, and your sons and your daughters shall prophesy, and your young men shall see visions, and your old men shall dream dreams; even on my male servants and female servants in those days I will pour out my Spirit, and they shall prophesy.

And I will show wonders in the heavens above and signs on the earth below, blood, and fire, and vapor of smoke; the sun shall be turned to darkness and the moon to blood, before the day of the Lord comes, the great and magnificent day. And it shall come to pass that everyone who calls upon the name of the Lord shall be saved.’Acts 2:17-21

Jesus Olivet Discourse:

Immediately after the tribulation of those days the sun will be darkened, and the moon will not give its light, and the stars will fall from heaven, and the powers of the heavens will be shaken. Then will appear in heaven the sign of the Son of Man, and then all the tribes of the earth will mourn, and they will see the Son of Man coming on the clouds of heaven with power and great glory. And he will send out his angels with a loud trumpet call, and they will gather his elect from the four winds, from one end of heaven to the other. Matthew 24:29-31

Isaiah

Look, the LORD’s day of judgment is coming; it is a day of cruelty and savage, raging anger, destroying the earth and annihilating its sinners.  Indeed the stars in the sky and their constellations no longer give out their light; the sun is darkened as soon as it rises, and the moon does not shine. I will punish the world for its evil, and wicked people for their sin. I will put an end to the pride of the insolent, I will bring down the arrogance of tyrants. I will make human beings more scarce than pure gold, and people more scarce than gold from Ophir. So I will shake the heavens, and the earth will shake loose from its foundation, because of the fury of the LORD of Heaven’s Armies, in the day he vents his raging anger.” Isaiah 13:6–13

In Revelation 6 we see the same celestial signs linked to the sixth seal and the announcement that the great day of their (unrepentant) wrath has come.

When he opened the sixth seal, I looked, and behold, there was a great earthquake, and the sun became black as sackcloth, the full moon became like blood, and the stars of the sky fell to the earthFall on us and hide us from the face of him who is seated on the throne, and from the wrath of the Lamb, for the great day of their wrath has come, and who can stand?”” Revelation 6:12,16

It is at the trumpet blast of the seventh seal that the rapture occurs and John sees the Saints before the throne in their new bodies praising God the Father and Jesus.

After this I looked, and behold, a great multitude that no one could number, from every nation, from all tribes and peoples and languages, standing before the throne and before the Lamb, clothed in white robes, with palm branches in their hands, and crying out with a loud voice, “Salvation belongs to our God who sits on the throne, and to the Lamb! Revelation 7:9-10

GOD GIVES US AMPLE WARNING PRIOR TO JUDGEMENT

Like the people in Noah’s time who laughed and mocked as he built the ark, the end of this age will come when the overwhelming majority are unprepared.

But know this, that in the last days perilous times will come. For men will be lovers of themselves, lovers of money, boasters, proud, blasphemers, disobedient to parents, unthankful, unholy, unloving, unforgiving, slanderers, without self-control, brutal, despisers of good, traitors, headstrong, haughty, lovers of pleasures more than lovers of God, having a form of godliness, but denying its power.” 2 Timothy 3:1-5

But as the days of Noah were, so also will the coming of the Son of Man be. For as in the days before the flood, they were eating and drinking, marrying and giving in marriage, until the day that Noah entered the ark, and did not know until the flood came and took them all away, so also will the coming of the Son of Man be.” Matthew 24:37-39

Full sized replica of Noah’s Ark built by Answers in Genesis, Williamstown Kentucky. Johan Huiber also built one in Holland.

Knowing this first of all, scoffers will come in the last days with scoffing, following their own sinful desires. They will say, “Where is the promise of His coming? For ever since the fathers fell asleep, all things are continuing as they were from the beginning of creation.” For they deliberately overlook this fact, that the heavens existed long ago, and the earth was formed out of water and through water by the word of God, and that by means of these the world that then existed was deluged with water and perished.” 2 Peter 3:3-6

But watch yourselves lest your hearts be weighed down with dissipation and drunkenness and cares of this life, and that day come upon you suddenly like a trap. For it will come upon all who dwell on the face of the whole earth. But stay awake at all times, praying that you may have strength to escape all these things that are going to take place, and to stand before the Son of Man.Luke 21:34-36

MYSTERY BABYLON’S ROLE IN THE END TIMES

As the previous post revealed the events unfolding in our time identify Mystery Babylon and its role in the end times? Initially, Mystery Babylon is seated on the Beast and is in control of it. Mystery Babylon is a great city and is first mentioned in Genesis 10:8, back then when it was part of Nimrod’s Kingdom it was a combination of cities. Mystery Babylon is an empire but it must have a capital. Will its capital be in New York which is the headquarters of the United Nations or perhaps the globalists might decide a new location is more appropriate like the new smart city in construction now, NEOM might be its capital.

500 billion dollar megacity in Saudi Arabia

Even prior to the Antichrist we learn that Mystery Babylon persecutes and kills Christians

And on her forehead was written a name of mystery: “Babylon the great, mother of prostitutes and of earth’s abominations.” And I saw the woman, drunk with the blood of the saints, the blood of the martyrs of Jesus.Revelation 17:5-6

The harlot, Mystery Babylon rides the Beast but the Beast (Antichrist) turns against Mystery Babylon.

“Alas! Alas! You great city, you mighty city, Babylon! For in a single hour your judgment has come.” Revelation 18:10

MYSTERY BABYLON OF REVELATION BEING REVEALED

The United Nations is about to become the One World Government ruled by global billionaires. A new stakeholder paradigm of international governance is necessary says the World Economic Forum and the United Nations. Will this be Mystery Babylon of Rev 17-18? Nelson believes it will and that we can now see that Mystery Babylon is not the Beast but initially controls the Beast. The Beast system follows the One World Government.

The World Economic Forum is driving this process right now with help from Bill Gates and the Rockefeller Foundation. Most western governments know it and don’t oppose it. Once it assumes power, how does the United Nations match the biblical prophecies of Mystery Babylon? What will be its capital city? Watch this Nelson Walters video to discover our future.

JESUS SECOND COMING – PART 2

If you have not watched Jesus Second Coming Part 1 which was posted several days ago can I suggest you go and take a look at this video before you watch the one below. Nelson presents four proofs that Jesus second coming to earth is a series of events beginning with the rapture of the Saints to heaven and ending with Him coming to earth with the Saints to defeat the Antichrist at the Battle of Armageddon and establish His Millennial Kingdom.

However, a number of Scriptures show Jesus on earth during the year God’s wrath is poured out on an unrepentant world. The fact that Jesus’ white robe is already stained with blood when He leads the Saints to earth should give us cause to see if other Scriptures provide an answer to this puzzling fact. Isaiah 63:1-4 does in fact provide the answer

He is clothed in a robe dipped in blood, and the name by which he is called is The Word of God. And the armies of heaven, arrayed in fine linen, white and pure, were following him on white horses. From his mouth comes a sharp sword with which to strike down the nations, and he will rule them with a rod of iron.Revelation 19:13-15

Who is this who comes from Edom, in crimsoned garments from Bozrah, he who is splendid in his apparel, marching in the greatness of his strength? “It is I, speaking in righteousness, mighty to save.”
Why is your apparel red, and your garments like his who treads in the winepress? “I have trodden the winepress alone, and from the peoples, no one was with me; I trod them in my anger and trampled them in my wrath; their lifeblood spattered on my garments, and stained all my apparel. For the day of vengeance was in my heart, and my year of redemption had come.
Isaiah 63:1-4

There is so much more to Jesus’ Return than just his glorious appearance in the sky. What surprising events happen in the year AFTER Jesus returns? Will a number of these events occur on the 7 Feasts of the Lord? Are these events linked to the Second Exodus from Egypt? And His defeat of the Antichrist? Watch this Nelson Walters video to find the biblical clues to the year after Jesus’ Return and the beginning of his reign.

BIBLE PROPHECY BEING FULFILLED IN OUR TIME

Bible prophecy is being fulfilled in our time. The ram of Daniel 8 is Iran “I saw the ram charging westward and northward and southward.” Since its inception in 1979, the Islamic Republic of Iran has aggressively sought to “export” its Islamic Revolution and remake the Middle East under its dominion. Iran’s primary method to empower itself has been to anchor loyal proxies in the region, which it has done most successfully with Hezbollah in Lebanon, and more recently in Iraq, Syria, Yemen, and Gaza.

IRAN HISTORICAL MAPS

Where its proxies have not been able to take root, Iran has engaged in subversive activities to undermine its rivals and enhance its influence, as it has done in Saudi Arabia, Bahrain, Kuwait, and Afghanistan.

I was in Susa the citadel, which is in the province of Elam. And I saw in the vision, and I was at the Ulai canal. I (Daniel) raised my eyes and saw, and behold, a ram standing on the bank of the canal. It had two horns, and both horns were high, but one was higher than the other, and the higher one came up last. I saw the ram charging westward and northward and southward. No beast could stand before him, and there was no one who could rescue him from his power. He did as he pleased and became great.Daniel 8:2-4

According to Dr. Shimon Shapira, a senior researcher at the Jerusalem Center for Public Affairs (JCPA), Iran has long sought to establish an Islamic empire among the Shi’ite populations in the Middle East region and encourages them to “challenge the nation-states in which they operate and to shape them by building a fighting Islamic society with military capabilities that is exclusively loyal to the leader of Iran, and that affords Iran active involvement in the jihad against Israel.”

A child in tiny military fatigues waves the Hezbollah flag as supporters of the group’s leader Sayyed Hassan Nasrallah wait for his televised speech in a southern suburb of Beirut

“Lebanon was the Islamic empire’s first target,” he said. “Over the past decade, it has fallen like a ripe fruit into Iran’s hands. Through Hezbollah, Iran has taken control of the institutions of the Lebanese state and turned it into a failed state whose stability has collapsed amid severe economic and political corruption that threatens its demise.”

“Meanwhile,” Shapira added, “Iraq and Syria have fallen, and Iran is using Yemen’s territory to wage the struggle against Saudi Arabia, whose legitimate control of the Islamic holy places Iran has put in question.”

Hezbollah works day and night to improve its military capabilities in the likely and inevitable event it goes to war with Israel.

Shapira noted that Hezbollah leader Hassan Nasrallah recently announced that the terror organization “had managed to convert thousands of missiles in its possession into precision-guided missiles, despite Israel’s attempts to thwart the process during its ‘campaign between the wars.’ ”

At the moment, according to Shapira, “Hezbollah is believed to have 130,000 missiles and rockets with ranges of 10 to 500 kilometers dispersed in Southern Lebanon and the Bekaa Valley in bunkers next to schools, clinics, hospitals, soccer fields, as well as the Iranian embassy in Beirut and the Lebanese Defense Ministry.”

According to Shapira, Iran’s strategy in Lebanon is based on three main factors:

One, turning Lebanon into an Iranian forward position against Israel, including an array of short- and long-range missiles intended to deter Israel from attacking the Iranian nuclear program.

Two, building an Islamic society in Lebanon in the image of Iran whose fealty is to Supreme Leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei.

However, we know from Biblical prophecy that Iran will not achieve its goal of establishing a Shia Islamic Empire because the Goat of Daniel 8, Sunni Turkey will crush and subdue it. However, the revived Ottoman Empire will not exist for long as the following Scriptures reveal. It will be broken up into four nations and out of one of these four, the Antichrist will arise.

As I (Daniel) was considering, behold, a male goat came from the west across the face of the whole earth, without touching the ground. And the goat had a conspicuous horn between his eyes. He came to the ram with the two horns, which I had seen standing on the bank of the canal, and he ran at him in his powerful wrath. I saw him come close to the ram, and he was enraged against him and struck the ram and broke his two horns. And the ram had no power to stand before him, but he cast him down to the ground and trampled on him. And there was no one who could rescue the ram from his power. Then the goat became exceedingly great, but when he was strong, the great horn was broken, and instead of it there came up four conspicuous horns toward the four winds of heaven.Daniel 8:5-8

Out of one of them came a little horn (Antichrist), which grew exceedingly great toward the south, toward the east, and toward the glorious land. It grew great, even to the host of heaven.Daniel 8:9-10

With Scripture, we can watch world events and see Biblical prophecy unfolding exactly as prophesied by the O.T and N.T writers. How good is our God, He has warned us in advance demonstrating His control over human history.

WARNING ABOUT THE BOOK OF REVELATION

Jesus provides us with an amazing warning about the book of REVELATION.

 I warn everyone who hears the words of the prophecy of this book: if anyone adds to them, God will add to him the plagues described in this book, and if anyone takes away from the words of the book of this prophecy, God will take away his share in the tree of life and in the holy city, which are described in this book.” Revelation 22:18-19

There is no warning like this concerning any other book in the Bible. This should make us realise how important this book is particularly to those living in the days when the prophesied events in the Book of Revelation are being fulfilled.

And just as it is appointed for man to die once, and after that comes judgment, so Christ, having been offered once to bear the sins of many, will appear a second time, not to deal with sin but to save those who are eagerly waiting for him.Hebrews 9:27-28

1. DECEPTION BY FALSE MESSIAHS.

2. BLOODSHED, WARS & CHAOS.

3. FAMINE AND ECONOMIC COLLAPSE.

4. ABOMINATION AND DEATH

5. MARTYRDOM AND APOSTASY.

6. CELESTIAL SIGNS

7. RAPTURE OF THE CHURCH

Bible commentators have long recognised the amazing parallel between these six signs given in Matthew, Mark, and Luke and the Six Seals of Revelation 6. If the first six signs are the same then it can be assumed the seventh His return is as well. Four books of the Bible give these six signs.

The FOUR HORSEMEN OF THE APOCALYPSE

Each of the four horsemen lines up with the first four seals of Revelation 6. The key to understanding: Satan is the one sending them out to get the world to worship the Antichrist. God grants him authority for a specified time.

Rider of the white horse posing as Jesus, even with a crown – Jesus first warning is of false Christs and false prophets. Revelation 6:1-2

Rider of the red horse with sword. It says this rider takes peace from the earth – bloodshed, wars and chaos. Revelation 6:3-4

Rider of the black horse with a pair of scales. He states the cost of wheat and barley as exorbitant – famine and pestilence. Revelation 6:5-6

Rider of the sickly green horse is named death and hades and he was given power to kill a fourth of the earth including animals with sword, famine, and plague –  abomination and death. Revelation 6:7-8

Bookended with the same phrases  (things you have seen take place, things about to take place & things that must take place after this), could these letters to the churches explain the 70th week of Daniel and the pattern of seven events? (how Jesus would deliver His people)
Jezebel is going to seduce believers to eat food sacrificed to idols by taking the Mark of the Beast. The Islamic system of Hallal, slaughtering and preparing meat for food, is all a sacrifice to Allah. Jezebel seduces believers to commit adultery by embracing Islam. Jezebel instituted the worship of Baal and Asherah on a national scale. In addition, she violently purged the prophets of Yaweh from Israel.
Church at Philadelphia is the church that will be raptured at the 6th Seal “I will keep you from the hour of trial”
The church at Laodicea will face the Wrath of God but still have a chance to repent as they have not taken the mark of the Beast.

END TIMES WARS AND RUMOURS OF WARS

It cannot be a good sign that Russia, China, and North Korea at the same time are threatening to launch the world’s most destructive weaponry.

On May 1, on Russian TV, the media executive often called “Putin’s mouthpiece” urged the Russian president to launch a Poseidon underwater drone with a “warhead of up to 100 megatons.”

The detonation, said Dmitry Kiselyov, would create a 1,640-foot tidal wave that would “plunge Britain to the depths of the ocean.” The wave would reach halfway up England’s tallest peak, Scafell Pike.

“This tidal wave is also a carrier of extremely high doses of radiation,” Kiselyov pointed out. “Surging over Britain, it will turn whatever is left of them into a radioactive desert, unusable for anything. How do you like this prospect?”

“A single launch, Boris, and there is no England anymore,” said Kiselyov, addressing the British prime minister.

Putin warns West fearsome Satan-2 nuclear missile is close to deployment

The threat followed one on April 28 made by Aleksey Zhuravlyov, chairman of Russia’s pro-Kremlin Rodina Party. On the “60 Minutes” program carried on Channel One, Russian TV, he urged Putin to nuke Britain with a Sarmat, the world’s largest and heaviest missile. The NATO designation of the Sarmat is “Satan II.”

The program noted that a missile launched from Russia’s Kaliningrad enclave would take 106 seconds to hit Berlin, 200 seconds to reach Paris, and 202 seconds to obliterate London.

Putin himself has gotten in on the fun. Just before sending his forces across Ukraine’s border, he warned of “consequences you have never encountered in your history.” On February 27, he put his nuclear forces on high alert.

On March 1, the Russian leader actually sortied his ballistic missile submarines and land-based mobile missile launchers in what was called a drill.

On May 4, the Russian Defense Ministry announced “electronic launches” in Kaliningrad of its nuclear-capable Iskander mobile ballistic missile.

Russia has a nuclear doctrine known as “escalate to deescalate” or, more accurately, “escalate to win,” which contemplates threatening or using nuclear weapons early in a conventional conflict.

China, which on February 4 issued a joint statement with Russia about their no-limits partnership, has this century been periodically making unprovoked threats to destroy the cities of states that have somehow offended it. In July of last year, for instance, the Chinese regime threatened to nuke Japan over its support for Taiwan.

In September, China issued a similar threat against Australia because it had joined with the U.S. and UK in the AUKUS pact, an arrangement to maintain stability in the region.

This March, China’s Ministry of Defense promised the “worst consequences” for countries helping Taiwan defend itself. The threat appeared especially directed against Australia.

This month, North Korea said that, in addition to using nuclear weapons to retaliate against an attack, it might launch nukes to attack others.

It cannot be a good sign that Russia, China, and North Korea at the same time are threatening to launch the world’s most destructive weaponry.

Putin and Chinese ruler Xi Jinping could make such threats because they do not respect nations perceived as enemies. “The bungled withdrawal from Afghanistan and the unwillingness to effectively support Ukraine since America’s 1994 guarantee and especially over the past year have led nuclear-armed enemies to ratchet up threats to the U.S. and its allies,” Huessy, also president of GeoStrategic Analysis, said to Gatestone at the beginning of this month. “They sense a growing American weakness.”

These threats may also reveal that the leaders of these regimes share a last-days-in-the-bunker mentality. Both Russia and China, albeit in different ways, are ruled by regimes in distress, which means their leaders undoubtedly have low thresholds of risk.

Whatever the reason for the threats, Putin and Xi have told everyone what they intend to do. Unfortunately, Western leaders are determined not to believe them.

In response to Russian threats, President Joe Biden on February 28 said the American people should not worry about nuclear war. On the contrary, there is every reason to worry.

In line with Western thinking, presidents and prime ministers have almost always ignored nuclear threats, hoping not to dignify them. Unfortunately, this posture has only emboldened the threat-makers to make more threats. The later the international community confronts belligerent Russians, Chinese, and North Koreans, the more dangerous the confrontations will be.

The world, therefore, looks like it is fast approaching the worst moment in history.
