The Persecutor Becomes the Persecuted And We Rejoice
Babylon represents the total of the ten kingdoms of the New World Order, which become the dominion of the anti-Christ. click here to see a map of the ten kingdoms of the New World Order The king of Babylon represents the anti-Christ who rules globally over the ten kingdoms, which is having dominion over the world through the New World Order. In today’s scripture text it says, “That you will take up this proverb against the king of Babylon, and say, How has the oppressor ceased! the golden city ceased!” The oppression of the anti-Christ will be defeated, it will cease according to the Power of God through His Son Christ Jesus. Daniel 2:45 talks about a stone that is cut out of the mountain without hands, and that stone is Christ Jesus! That stone will be thrown to the feet, the toes are the ten kingdoms of the New World Order, and the entire system of the anti-Christ will break apart. What Christ has done for us at the Cross is to defeat Satan, the anti-Christ, and all evil spirits and demons. Through the Great Tribulation, the territory of the ten kingdoms will be utterly destroyed, and at Christ’s return He will reign as King of kings and Lord of lords. We who accept what Christ Jesus has done for us on the Cross will be victorious with Him, free of oppression and free in the Spirit of Christ!
The anti-Christ is a ruthless and wicked person who is given power over the New World Order because people refuse the Message of the Cross of Christ and choose to live according to the 666. The modern god of knowledge in this technological age is the essence of the 666 because it wars against the spirit and the soul. With such massive knowledge flowing through people, there is no knowledge about the One True God, the Cross of His Son Jesus Christ, nor about the Holy Spirit. Before the anti-Christ appears, there will be a great falling away from the Spirit of Christ, truth will thrown to the ground, love will become cold, and the world is full of the desire for the lust of the flesh, the lust of the eyes, the pride of life. The system of the anti-Christ hunts down dissenters like a lone sheep left to the wolves, or like a deer left to the vicious prey. They cry out, “There’s one!” HOWBEIT, it is written, “The Lord has broken the staff of the wicked, and the sceptre of the rulers. He who smote the people in wrath with a continual stroke, he that ruled the nations in anger, is persecuted, and none hinders.” How righteously glorious is our Lord Jesus Christ because he who continuously persecuted the people in wrath and anger will be the one who is persecuted….AND there will be none to prevent it!
When the anti-Christ is defeated by the rock that smites the ten kingdoms of the New World Order, there will be rest. We who are born again at the Cross of our Lord Jesus Christ know something about that rest. We are not burdened down with the cares, worries, concerns, and entanglements that exist in the kingdoms of this world. We are set apart from the ways of this world. That’s because the sinful nature is made dormant, rendered inactive, and does nothing through us. We rest in the Grace, Mercy, and Lovingkindness of the Holy Spirit who lives in us to bring comfort, peace, joy, and puts a song into our heart. At the return of Jesus Christ, which is coming close, we will know even more fully the joy and singing! As it is written, “The whole earth is at rest, and is quiet: they break forth into singing. Yea, the fir trees rejoice at thee, and the cedars of Lebanon, saying, Since thou art laid down, no feller is come up against us.”
No one is perfect, which is to say that we are all flawed by sin. God honors that humble attitude. We all know someone whose life has been changed because of what Christ Jesus did on the Cross to remit sin. I am one. God honors that belief. Confessing that we are flawed with sin, and believing in the work of Jesus Christ on the Cross will reconcile us to God. That simple! Believe in the heart and confess with your mouth that Jesus is Lord.
“That thou shalt take up this proverb against the king of Babylon, and say, How hath the oppressor ceased! the golden city ceased! The Lord hath broken the staff of the wicked, and the sceptre of the rulers. He who smote the people in wrath with a continual stroke, he that ruled the nations in anger, is persecuted, and none hinders. The whole earth is at rest, and is quiet: they break forth into singing. Yea, the fir trees rejoice at thee, and the cedars of Lebanon, saying, Since thou art laid down, no feller is come up against us.”
