Fallen, Fallen is Babylon the Great

From that first moment when man decided to play God the story of humankind has been an ongoing history of human angst to build ever more impressive, more enslaving, more intimidating tower of Babel.

But hear the good news: all ancient attempts have failed. The ancient Babylon, Greece, Roman Empire are no more. The divine aspirations of Napoleon, Mussolini, Hitler, Stalin – to mention the most obvious ones – failed too. So will crumble the emerging, final attempt to dethrone God by some beastly, Orwellian, control freaking entity.

Biblical prophecies are reassuring: Babylon is falling, the beastly reign of greedy powers will abruptly come to their end, the rightful Ruler is well and very much alive, and the Kingdom of God, the only legitimate kingdom will reign for forever.

Many do not welcome this message. They ridicule it because deep down in their hearts they are scared. But the followers of Jesus will stand unshaken and defiant. They know that the only defiance that works against the bullying powers of this world that dream of awakening a mighty Babylon again is to declare, loud and clear, that you have pledge your allegiance to Jesus Christ, the only legitimate King of the only legitimate Kingdom.

The beastly powers of Babylon, however sophisticated and fat they might have grown over the centuries, will not win. They never have. Their fate was sealed two thousand years ago when, on the cross, Jesus declared victoriously: “It is finished!”

Be brave in Christ. The emerging tower of Babel will collapse before it is completed. Rev. 14:8.
