Mystery Babylon Today

The large cities of our time appear to be an allegory of the overshadowing of the Church by Commercial Babylon. In times past, in every city, town and village, the dominant structure was the church. The Church was the most important part of communities.

Even in large cities, until the Twentieth Century, church spires and steeples stood out above all other buildings. In Boston, it was a church steeple that Paul Revere looked to for a signal. In New York, Trinity Church and St. Patrick’s Cathedral stood above the other buildings. Today, however, towers of commerce obscure these church spires and steeples. These towers are filled with people communicating by phone, fax and email. Are these Towers of “Babble”?

The power of some parts of Mystery Babylon is evident today. However, other parts are more obscure. There are several organizations that have political, commercial and spiritual ties which are striving and maneuvering to control the people of the world and ultimately to enslave them. Some focus on the Bilderbergers, or the Council on Foreign Relations, or the Masons, or the United Nations, or the Vatican, or the Federal Reserve, or large super-rich foundations.

Before you dismiss this as conspiracy theory, consider your local government. If you need to get a road paved, or some other governmental action, there are people of influence who can get it done. The same is true on the state and national levels. It is illogical to think that the same principle does not operate on an international level. An example: The land upon which the United Nations Building was built was donated by the Rockefeller family. What benefit of influence did they receive for this action of international co-operation?

Obviously, these groups do not all search for the same authority. It is not important if one or all of these organizations is seeking to control mankind. I think that if you researched the goals of the organizations, or statements of their leaders, you would find that they all are looking for that “New World Order”, or they seek to be a part of it.

What is important to note is that the goal, a New World Order, clearly falls under the definition of Mystery Babylon. Mystery Babylon is the umbrella under which all these elitist, internationalist organizations are found. Mystery Babylon is all about Political, Commercial and Spiritual control. It has been throughout history. Whatever name it wears, the object is control of man and the usurping of the position of the Lord God.

Here are the words of Satan;
I will ascend into heaven, I will exalt my throne above the stars of God: I will sit also upon the mount of the congregation, in the sides of the north: I will ascend above the heights of the clouds; I will be like the most High.” – Isaiah 14:13-14

This is the goal of Satan. The men whose goal is a New World Order are merely tools in the hands of Satan. But the defeat of Satan is prophesied and is certain. How I look forward to the Day when the Lord Jesus reigns and Satan is locked in the pit. Praise the Name of the Lord!
