JEREMIAH FOR TODAY
Chapters 50 - 52
Prophecy concerning Babylon
Here and in Isaiah we have, outside the book of Revelation,
the longest denouncing and fall of Babylon.
The destruction she faces will come from the NORTH! North of
the modern Europe Babylon is RUSSIA! Truly the Russian empire
with China, will be an important factor in end time events. It is
Russia that will come against the last days resurrected Holy
Roman Empire of Babylon the Whore, as mentioned in the book of
Revelation (verses 1-3).
THE TIME FRAME is clearly given in verses 4-5. It is the
time when the children of Israel will COME, together with the
children of Judah; going and weeping, and seeking the Lord. They
shall ask the way to Zion, saying "Come, and let us join
ourselves to the Lord, in a PERPETUAL COVENANT that shall NOT BE
Never in history, since the days of the DIVIDING of the 13
tribes of Israel into the House of Israel and the House of Judah,
have they COME TOGETHER, seeking Zion, and making a PERPETUAL
COVENANT that has never been forgotten. There is no way this
prophecy has EVER BEEN FULFILLED!
IT IS A PROPHECY FOR THE LAST DAYS - THE END TIME - THE
COMING OF THE MESSIAH IN GLORY TO RULE ALL ISRAEL AND ALL THE
It is the time when Israel and Judah have lost their way,
have been scattered into the lands of their enemies, when they
have been devoured by their adversaries; when their enemies think
they have not sinned by destroying them, for they have destroyed
a people that no longer served their God.
Israel and Judah are told to move out of Babylon (Revelation
18:4) for God will bring a GREAT NATION from the NORTH, and they
shall set themselves in array against her; her warfare is
conducted with a mighty expertise - Babylon shall be spoiled.
Because Babylon was glad in destroying God's heritage people, and
because they had grown fat as a heifer at grass, their
destruction is near. All who see it will hiss and be astonished
at all her plagues, for her destruction will come quickly and
indeed many will shake their head in wonderment that so mighty an
Empire could fall so suddenly (verses 9-16; see Revelation 18:7-
Assyria and Babylon, the TWO mighty enemies of all the 13
tribes of Israel, the two enemies that have come together in the
last days, to destroy both Israel and Judah, it is the last days
indeed. For it is the time when the INIQUITY of Israel shall be
sort for but there shall be NONE! And the sins of Judah shall not
be FOUND! It is the time when Israel and Judah are FORGIVEN their
sins and iniquities (verses 17-20).
THERE HAS NEVER BEEN A TIME WHEN BOTH HOUSES OF ISRAEL HAVE
BOTH BEEN FORGIVEN AT THE SAME TIME AND RESTORED TO ZION WITH AN
EVERLASTING COVENANT THAT SHALL NEVER BE FORGOTTEN!
The Coming Slaughter of Babylon
Babylon will receive her judgement as she has striven
against the Lord. It is God's time to pay her for her sins. Those
who manage to flee Babylon and go to Zion shall say it is the
time of God's vengeance. She shall be recompensed according to
her works. She has drunk the blood of the saints and so blood she
will have. Her young men shall fall in the streets, and her men
of war cut off. Her proud shall stumble and fall, there shall be
fire in her cities.
Read Revelation 18 and see that there is an end time Babylon
that is spoken about not only in Isaiah and Jeremiah, but also in
the end time book of the New Testament.
Israel's and Judah's Redeemer is Strong
It is the time when Israel and Judah are oppressed TOGETHER!
When they who took them captive refused to let them go. But the
Lord God of Israel is stronger than all, and it is now Babylon
that shall be punished (verses 33-34).
War and Desolation to come on Babylon
A sword is coming upon Babylon. Her mighty men shall be
dismayed. The sword is upon her MINGLED people - Babylon - Europe
- is today a mixture of many different races of people. A drought
is upon her waters: for she is a people of graven images, her
religion is full of images of this supposed saint and that saint.
The very city - the capital city of this empire - Babylon Rome -
will be laid bare and no man nor beast will inhabit it (verses
When you think of the evil that has come from Rome
throughout the centuries, what she as a city and religion have
perpetrated on this earth, it is no wonder God will make an
example of this city for generations into the millennium age
A people from the NORTH, with many kings from the coasts of
the earth - China - India - Japan - a CRUEL people who will show
no mercy. They will come in battle against the DAUGHTER
(descendant of) Babylon (verses 41-42).
At the noise of the taking of Babylon the earth is MOVED,
and a cry is heard among the nations (verse 46). Truly this will
be an event that will shake the earth and effect all nations. It
is the time of the TWO WOES of Revelation 9, the 5th and 6th
Judgment of Guilty Babylon
The sword is ready to come. The shout goes out to FLEE from
Babylon, as the Lord's vengeance is about to come on her
(Revelation 18:4). Babylon has been a golden cup in the Lord's
hand (all things are allowed of God); she has made the earth
DRUNKEN; the nations have drunk of her wine; therefore the
nations are MAD! (see Revelation 17:4).
Babylon is SUDDENLY fallen and destroyed: howl for her (see
Revelation 14:8; 18:2,9,11,19).
Babylon is not healed. Go out of her. Her judgment reaches
to heaven, and is lifted up to the skies (see Revelation 18:5).
The Medes to Execute Judgment
It is the time of the Lord's vengeance and He will use the
Medes - the men of the East - the men of the North - the army of
the Medes - the Russia/China Empire. As it has been in the recent
past, Europe thinking it can destroy the Eastern Empire and so
rule the entire world, so it will once more do the same, come
against the East, the 5th Trumpet of the book of Revelation. But
the men of the East will counter-attack and will destroy the
cities of Babylon Europe - that will be the 6th Trumpet of the
book of Revelation.
She will be destroyed in God's time. Yet she will for a
while dwell among many waters (nations - see Revelation 17:15)
and her abundant treasures. Before that event of her destruction
it is true that God will use this Babylon of Europe as His battle
axe, to break in pieces many nations - many people - old and
young, the war rider, the men and women, the young man and the
maiden, the spiritual shepherd and the flock, the working farmer,
the captains and the rulers. She will be rendered the evil that
she has done on Zion. Though she has been a destroying kingdom
(mountain) in the hands of the Lord, she will have the Lord's
hand stretched out on her, and she will become a burning fire of
a kingdom - desolate forever in many ways (verses 20-26).
BLOW THE TRUMPET! Call for the nations of the Medes, the
Lord will make the land of Babylon a desolation, without an
inhabitant. One messenger will meet another messenger as they run
to tell the king of Babylon the doom cast over her. As Europe is
destroyed by the powers of the East, messengers will carry the
news to the beast man and the false prophet dwelling in Jerusalem
and the Holy Land. It will be that the DAUGHTER of Babylon is to
be THRESHED and the time of the harvest come (verses 27-33).
This all fits in with the many prophecies in the book of
Revelation. The fall of the end time Babylon; the threshing of
the harvest of the world.
The modern Babylon of Rome will be destroyed and will be
desolate with no inhabitants; it will be an astonishment; it will
be a hissing. This last daughter Empire of Babylon will be as
lambs to the slaughter. It will be a surprise and an ASTONISHMENT
AMONG THE NATIONS OF THE EARTH! It is as if the sea had come up
and covered her Empire. Her cities are desolated. The wall of her
might shall fall!
Once more God cries out to His people to GET OUT of her,
certainly in the spiritual side of her, that a man may save his
soul from the anger of the Lord (verses 34-45).
The day is coming when God will render judgment on Babylon
and her false images of physical hope and spiritual vanity. It
will be the time when the heaven and the earth will figuratively
SING FOR JOY when the spoiler from the North is sent to destroy
As Babylon caused the slain of Israel to fall, so at Babylon
shall fall the slain of all the earth. Though this modern
daughter of Babylon should mount up to heaven, and though she can
fortify her height of strength, from the Lord will come the ones
who shall spoil her and cause her destruction (verses 46-53).
The Noise of Her Destruction
It is the Lord's will that Babylon is to be destroyed, that
as they made the world drunk on her spiritual fornications
(Revelation 17:1-6), so her mighty men shall be drunk with blood
and destruction. Her beauty, her high walls, her seeming splendor
of the physical and the spiritual shall come crashing down in the
fires of destruction (verses 54-58).
So ends the prophecies of Jeremiah as that which pertains to
today and beyond, as we proceed to the end of this age.
The last verses of chapter 51 are verses that tell us the
SURE WORD of this prophecy that Babylon the Great, the mother of
Harlots and Abominations of the earth, the daughter Babylon of
the end time book of Revelation, will be DESTROYED, and will rise
The Capture of Jerusalem (verses 1-11)
Jerusalem Destroyed (verses 12-30)
Pardon of Jehoiachin (verses 31-34)
SO IT IS WRITTEN AND SO IT WILL COME TO PASS, if the nations of
the earth will not REPENT!
