Jer 51:61 And Jeremiah said to Seraiah, When thou comest to Babylon, and shalt see, and shalt read all these words;
Jer 51:62 Then shalt thou say, O LORD, thou hast spoken against this place, to cut it off, that none shall remain in it, neither man nor beast, but that it shall be desolate for ever.
Jer 51:63 And it shall be, when thou hast made an end of reading this book, that thou shalt bind a stone to it, and cast it into the midst of Euphrates:
Jer 51:64 And thou shalt say, Thus shall Babylon sink, and shall not rise from the evil that I will bring upon her: and they shall be weary. Thus far are the words of Jeremiah.
And it shall be, when thou hast made an end of reading this book,.... To the captive Jews; and having also said the above words by way of prayer and approbation:
that thou shalt bind a stone to it, and cast it into the midst of Euphrates; a river by which Babylon was situated. The book, being read, was to be rolled up again, and then a stone tied to it, and cast into the middle of the river, where the waters were deepest, and from whence it could not be taken up; and this was a sign confirming the above prophecy; compare with this what was done by a mighty angel concerning mystical Babylon, in which there is an allusion to this, Rev_18:21.
Rev 18:17 For in one hour so great riches is come to nought. And every shipmaster, and all the company in ships, and sailors, and as many as trade by sea, stood afar off,
Rev 18:18 And cried when they saw the smoke of her burning, saying, What city is like unto this great city!
Rev 18:19 And they cast dust on their heads, and cried, weeping and wailing, saying, Alas, alas, that great city, wherein were made rich all that had ships in the sea by reason of her costliness! for in one hour is she made desolate.
Rev 18:20 Rejoice over her, thou heaven, and ye holy apostles and prophets; for God hath avenged you on her.
Rev 18:21 And a mighty angel took up a stone like a great millstone, and cast it into the sea, saying, Thus with violence shall that great city Babylon be thrown down, and shall be found no more at all.
Rev 18:22 And the voice of harpers, and musicians, and of pipers, and trumpeters, shall be heard no more at all in thee; and no craftsman, of whatsoever craft he be, shall be found any more in thee; and the sound of a millstone shall be heard no more at all in thee;
Rev 18:24 And in her was found the blood of prophets, and of saints, and of all that were slain upon the earth.
I used much of this portion , REV Ch 18 whole chapter, in my message that proves 100% America, or NY.NY is not N.T. Babylon, it is Rome, but America is a type of N.T. Babylon, no doubt it is a perfect match, but we are not in the tribulation, we are in the birth pains, Americas fall, is not the Tribulation, but A tribulation, as said in my first free E-Book. The message is the same, but in this message I want to speak on the great coming victory and vindication of the blood of the saints, past, present, and future, also the over coming and coming out of Captivity, after America and parts of the world are judged and many are restored to the lord.
Note: also concerning this same river, it is where the super strong demons are chained, until an Angel falls down with a key to a pit under this river, odd we are still in Iraq, and this is the location these demons will be released in the tribulation to do Satan’s bidding, they are chained now, but one day they will be loosed. The prophecy Jer. gave of Babylons doom, was lit. Tied to a stone, and cast into this river, it is also the river that dries up and the 200 million man army, the Kings of the East, China and Company, enter the valley of Armageddon, the valley of judgment, the final war, Christ returns and stops man kind from wiping out Israel, and delivers his saints.
All this is future, in it we see a powerful message of deliverance, after a time of captivity, a remnant that comes out of Babylon, and a people world wide that return to Christ full hearted and many souls won, yes powerful ministry will still be happening during the tribulation.
Now days the birth pains are getting so bad, it looks like we are headed for the tribulation, but this we do not know, as said, most scholars put us at the year 6004 since the creation of the world, in orthodox teaching we find this in historic writings, and bible helps. The Jews believe in a 6,000 year time frame and than the end, this will start the 1000 year reign of Messiah on earth, we are past the 6,000 years, so the scholars are wrong, or they reject the true Holy Jewish calendar that has us at the year 5773- 2013, also , as said in my first book, if this is correct, if this is the date, and the 6,000 year time frame true, we have over 200 years until the great tribulation, going with that thought, we will see increased birth pains, war, nations fall, America Judged, but what happens after this?
I see a renewal of some sorts, it will be a short time of a do over, and in comes the last church in Rev Ch 3 the Laodiceans Church. It takes approx. 100 years for a denomination to go apostate, and thus a true remnant bride, God fearing people will be the new church, broken, humbled and saved to the bone. History shows in the great awakening this happened, and other times in Church history, we find many main line denominations that started out good, 100 plus years later, apostate, this fits no matter how this all plays out, but this may be far off, what is not far off is the current birth pains, the wars and RUMORS of war, RUMORS, fear, and more RUMORS, many sit white knuckled waiting, I say minister, live life, be faithful and at peace with no fear, Jesus said these wars and rumors of war were going to happen, but his people were not to fear, for the end is not yet, so why fear? America will not be a super power, it is a bible fact (America is not mentioned in end time bible prophecy, a fact), a historic fact, and a current prophetic fact established by many that have heard this word from the throne.
During the fall of America, the invasion, the coming famine, financial collapse of the West, it is all so near you can taste it, but we as the remnant ones should be tasting victory, not fear, many words have been given, once proclaimed, why not toss them in a river, by this I mean, put it on the back burner for a while, until you can handle the word, or get comfort and truth, than and only than, go and fetch it and use it, much is an unknown, secret, as the secret things belong to the lord Deu 29:29, forget it and move on, minister on until we can not, sitting in fear does no good, it does not advanced the message of Christ, it hinders outreach, and many are so afraid they are already in hiding, afraid of where they live, people, places, I am serious, I have read such words , why dear saint are you still stuck in fear, worried about the hard days ahead, get busy living or get busy dying.
Think on this
