After this I saw another angel coming down from heaven, having great authority, and the earth was made bright with his glory. 2 And he called out with a mighty voice, “Fallen, fallen is Babylon the great! She has become a dwelling place for demons, a haunt for every unclean spirit, a haunt for every unclean bird, a haunt for every unclean and detestable beast. For all nations have drunk the wine of the passion of her sexual immorality, and the kings of the earth have committed immorality with her, and the merchants of the earth have grown rich from the power of her luxurious living.” Then I heard another voice from heaven saying, “Come out of her, my people, lest you take part in her sins, lest you share in her plagues; for her sins are heaped high as heaven, and God has remembered her iniquities. Pay her back as she herself has paid back others, and repay her double for her deeds; mix a double portion for her in the cup she mixed. As she glorified herself and lived in luxury, so give her a like measure of torment and mourning, since in her heart she says, ‘I sit as a queen, I am no widow, and mourning I shall never see.’ For this reason her plagues will come in a single day, death and mourning and famine, and she will be burned up with fire; for mighty is the Lord God who has judged her.” And the kings of the earth, who committed sexual immorality and lived in luxury with her, will weep and wail over her when they see the smoke of her burning. 10 They will stand far off, in fear of her torment, and say, “Alas! Alas! You great city, you mighty city, Babylon! For in a single hour your judgment has come.”
In my book, The Coming Economic Flood, I recounted that God gave me some visions and the very first vision, the 911 terrorist attack on World Trade Center, was the judgment on the symbol of the Babylonian system. That financial system is unmistakably the present capitalism in which all the global economies are engaged in globalized trade led by the United States with her reserve currency. Just as heaven is sometimes depicted as a city – the New Jerusalem – or sometimes as the new heaven descending on the new earth, likewise Babylon can be depicted as the leading financial city or the whole globalised system of governments, global businesses and major seaports cum financial centers.
It is no coincidence then that New York City was selected among several cities to site the Statue of Liberty eventually. (Watch the videos for the amazing history of this statue.) All the excesses of sins of pleasure-seeking (sex, pornography, sexual perversion and other indulgences) and money-making originate from this city and proliferate throughout the whole world. Presently the city has the highest coronavirus infection of all cities in the US and also faces one of the worst riots in history. It is no coincidence again that the newspapers described the city as burning. The United Nations and World Bank are also headquartered in this city. New York City perfectly fits the description of the city mentioned in Rev 18:1-10. (Watch the following videos for the amazing “coincidences”.)
Due to the Fed Reserve still being able to get away with printing much money to prop up the financial system at this moment, we will continue to watch whether she will eventually go up in smoke and make every government and merchant weep.
Considering all the above evidence and current events, is New York City the Babylon of the end times ?
