The Tale of Two Cities

29 January 2013, 10:11

Did you know that the activities of every living human being on this planet are being orchestrated to conform to the governing power of two opposing cities? In fact, one of these two cities has a death grip over the world's population and is in a battle with the other city to hold on to its reign over the world's sea of humanity.

Both these cities are huge. They are so big that they are regarded as Kingdoms. However, regardless of their size, they cannot be seen, for they both exist within the spiritual realm. Nevertheless, their influence in the physical realm is so intense and extensive that they might as well be physically present.

Now here lies the mystery. The spiritual city with the death grip on the world is evil. Its reign over the inhabitants of the Earth has transformed the world into the literal version of itself. In other words, the Earth has become the literal expression of spiritual Babylon. Yes, so steeped has the world become in the evil sown by its unseen master that Earth is regarded as an extension of that city.

Mystery, Babylon the Great, the Mother of Harlots and Abominations of the Earth, is the full title of spiritual Babylon, also known as the Kingdom of Darkness. And the world is in total captivity to this power of darkness. The grand master of this kingdom is Satan. He has succeeded in turning Earth into a den of iniquity, bringing disease, depravity, destruction and death to all the creatures made in the image of God. He has established false religions, infiltrated Christian churches, controls world commerce and is in charge of the media and entertainment industries. The amazing irony of it all is that he has used the minds of men to accomplish this.

Up to this point in time spiritual Babylon has been the launching pad for attacks against all of humanity. Pretty soon it will be plucked from its spiritual location and cast down to the Earth to merge with its counterpart, Earth – or literal Babylon. That's when we will hear the cry, "Babylon the great is fallen, is fallen, and is become the habitation of devils, and the hold of every foul spirit..." (Rev 18:2)

The fact that the whole Earth is representative of Babylon, the great whore, is clearly depicted in Rev. 18:3.  “For all nations have drunk of the wine of the wrath of her fornication, and the kings of the earth have committed fornication with her, and the merchants of the earth are waxed rich through the abundance of her delicacies.”

Spiritual Babylon and the literal city of Babylon (the whole Earth) are one. Side by side are men and evil spirits plundering the earth and the lives of the least of men.

In the days of Noah judgment from God came in the form of water. Now judgment will come by fire. No ship laden with goods will be able to enter any port of literal Babylon (Earth), for it will be ablaze. "And every shipmaster, and all the company in ships, and sailors, and as many as trade by sea, stood afar off. And cried when they saw the smoke of her burning, saying, what city is like unto this great city?" (Rev 18:17,18)

The whole Earth is under Judgment. The religious whoredom of the Earth, together with its Babylonian system of commerce and entertainment, will be obliterated. Rev. 18:9-24 paints the full picture.

“And the kings of the earth, who have committed fornication and lived deliciously with her, shall bewail her, and lament for her, when they shall see the smoke of her burning,

Standing afar off for the fear of her torment, saying, Alas, alas that great city Babylon, that mighty city! for in one hour is thy judgment come.

And the merchants of the earth shall weep and mourn over her; for no man buyeth their merchandise any more:

The merchandise of gold, and silver, and precious stones, and of pearls, and fine linen, and purple, and silk, and scarlet, and all thyine wood, and all manner vessels of ivory, and all manner vessels of most precious wood, and of brass, and iron, and marble,

And cinnamon, and odours, and ointments, and frankincense, and wine, and oil, and fine flour, and wheat, and beasts, and sheep, and horses, and chariots, and slaves, and souls of men.

And the fruits that thy soul lusted after are departed from thee, and all things which were dainty and goodly are departed from thee, and thou shalt find them no more at all.

The merchants of these things, which were made rich by her, shall stand afar off for the fear of her torment, weeping and wailing,

And saying, Alas, alas, that great city, that was clothed in fine linen, and purple, and scarlet, and decked with gold, and precious stones, and pearls!

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,

And cried when they saw the smoke of her burning, saying, What city is like unto this great city!”

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.

Rejoice over her, thou heaven, and ye holy apostles and prophets; for God hath avenged you on her.

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.

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;

And the light of a candle shall shine no more at all in thee; and the voice of the bridegroom and of the bride shall be heard no more at all in thee: for thy merchants were the great men of the earth; for by thy sorceries were all nations deceived.

And in her was found the blood of prophets, and of saints, and of all that were slain upon the earth.”

Can there be anything clearer than that?

During the reign of the city of Babylon (the Kingdom of Darkness) over the Earth, the other city, the city of God, the New Jerusalem, also known as the Kingdom of Light, has been rescuing a great many sons of men, translating them from the power of darkness into the Kingdom of God. They remained on the Earth, in this world, but not of this world. They reigned, together with Christ, as kings and priests on the Earth in God's spiritual Kingdom, which was within them.

All true citizens of the Kingdom of God will soon be snatched out of harm’s way – removed to meet their King in the air to escape the wrath of God upon literal Babylon – planet Earth. Those who refused to reject the reign of Satan over their lives and exchange it for the reign of God (to become subjects of the Kingdom of God) were now facing a new choice - that of whether to die as martyrs for Christ  or to take their chances with Satan.

This then, is the tale of two cities.
