King of Babylon
Who is Babylon? Who is the king of Babylon? When did Babylon exist? Lets start with this:
Isa 47: 1 Come down , and sit in the dust, O virgin daughter of Babylon, sit on the ground: there is no throne, O daughter of the Chaldeans: for thou shalt no more be called tender and delicate.
2 Take the millstones, and grind meal: uncover thy locks, make bare the leg, uncover the thigh, pass over the rivers.
3 Thy nakedness shall be uncovered , yea, thy shame shall be seen : I will take vengeance, and I will not meet thee as a man.
4 As for our redeemer , the LORD of hosts is his name, the Holy One of Israel.
5 Sit thou silent, and get thee into darkness, O daughter of the Chaldeans: for thou shalt no more be called , The lady of kingdoms.
6 I was wroth with my people, I have polluted mine inheritance, and given them into thine hand: thou didst shew them no mercy; upon the ancient hast thou very heavily laid thy yoke.
7 And thou saidst , I shall be a lady for ever: so that thou didst not lay these things to thy heart, neither didst remember the latter end of it.
8 Therefore hear now this, thou that art given to pleasures, that dwellest carelessly, that sayest in thine heart, I am, and none else beside me; I shall not sit as a widow, neither shall I know the loss of children:
9 But these two things shall come to thee in a moment in one day, the loss of children, and widowhood: they shall come upon thee in their perfection for the multitude of thy sorceries, and for the great abundance of thine enchantments.
10 For thou hast trusted in thy wickedness: thou hast said , None seeth me. Thy wisdom and thy knowledge, it hath perverted thee; and thou hast said in thine heart, I am, and none else beside me.
11 Therefore shall evil come upon thee; thou shalt not know from whence it riseth: and mischief shall fall upon thee; thou shalt not be able to put it off : and desolation shall come upon thee suddenly, which thou shalt not know .
Thy wisdom and knowledge has perverted you. Who can this be? It goes to Eze 28. Here God speaks to the king of Tyrus .
It will be a lot of Scripture to read, but unless you do, unless you want truth, unless you are willing to spend some time reading and trying to learn God’s truth, you will die in your darkness and end up lost.
Now, Eze 28: 1 The word of the LORD came again unto me, saying , 2 Son of man, say unto the prince of Tyrus, Thus saith the Lord GOD; Because thine heart is lifted up , and thou hast said , I am a God, I sit in the seat of God, in the midst of the seas; yet thou art a man, and not God, though thou set thine heart as the heart of God: 3 Behold, thou art wiser than Daniel; there is no secret that they can hide from thee: 4 With thy wisdom and with thine understanding thou hast gotten thee riches, and hast gotten gold and silver into thy treasures:
Now, we see from the above, that this person was wiser than Daniel and had lifted himself up as God. He said I sit in the ‘seat’ of God, or the same as the ruler, God.
God said to him, you are a MAN. So we find that this is a man, not an angel, or a god. But he is claiming to be God. We see him proud and lifted up in his own vain mind.
Who was this?
12 Son of man, take up a lamentation upon the king of Tyrus, and say unto him, Thus saith the Lord GOD; Thou sealest up the sum, full of wisdom, and perfect in beauty. 13 Thou hast been in Eden the garden of God;
So, we find that he had been in Eden, the garden of God. Know yet, who this is? NO? Well then, more information:
14 Thou art the anointed cherub that covereth ; and I have set thee so: thou wast upon the holy mountain of God; thou hast walked up and down in the midst of the stones of fire. 15 Thou wast perfect in thy ways from the day that thou wast created , till iniquity was found in thee.
Here we find that he was created. Who did God create? What man did God create? It said he was a MAN. Now it says that he was created. He was perfect, when he was created until iniquity was found in him.
So we see that God created some man, put him into Eden, and this man was perfect. God had also anointed this CHERUB to be a covering, or to keep the garden and protect it. But then iniquity was found in this man.
Know yet? Who is this?
How many men did God create? How many were in Eden, the garden of God? Did this one become evil or disobedient? Know yet? No, then lets get some more information. Want to nail this down for sure, BECAUSE THIS IS THE KING OF BABYLON.
16 By the multitude of thy merchandise they have filled the midst of thee with violence, and thou hast sinned : therefore I will cast thee as profane out of the mountain of God: and I will destroy thee, O covering cherub, from the midst of the stones of fire.
Now verse 16 should clinch this to everyone. God cast this profane man OUT OF THE MOUNTAIN OF GOD.
Who was cast out? The same man whom God put into Eden. God cast Adam out of Eden.
This fits perfectly the beginning Scripture in Isa 47. It is the same one. It is the one who was beautiful, proud, and sinned, so that God cast him out of Eden. It is none other than God’s own son, Adam. This is the one God had anointed to be the covering for the people and to lead them and teach them of God.
But no. He became proud, lifted up and set himself up as God.
So now, lets take this a bit further.
Gen 3: 4 And the serpent said unto the woman, Ye shall not surely die : 5 For God doth know that in the day ye eat thereof, then your eyes shall be opened , and ye shall be as gods, knowing good and evil.
This SERPENT tells Eve, God is lying. He just knows that we will become as gods.
I am God. I sit in the seat of God. You are a MAN. I created you. You were prefect then. But you became proud and lifted up in your own wisdom and beauty and became profane. So, God cast him out of Eden, the Garden of God.
Who is that serpent?
Mat 23: 28 Even so ye also outwardly appear righteous unto men, but within ye are full of hypocrisy and iniquity.
29 Woe unto you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites! because ye build the tombs of the prophets, and garnish the sepulchres of the righteous,
30 And say , If we had been in the days of our fathers, we would not have been partakers with them in the blood of the prophets.
31 Wherefore ye be witnesses unto yourselves, that ye are the children of them which killed the prophets.
32 Fill ye up then the measure of your fathers.
33 Ye serpents, ye generation of vipers, how can ye escape the damnation of hell?
34 Wherefore, behold , I send unto you prophets, and wise men, and scribes: and some of them ye shall kill and crucify; and some of them shall ye scourge in your synagogues, and persecute them from city to city: 35 That upon you may come all the righteous blood shed upon the earth from the blood of righteous Abel unto the blood of Zacharias son of Barachias, whom ye slew between the temple and the altar.
36 Verily I say unto you, All these things shall come upon this generation.
37 O Jerusalem, Jerusalem, thou that killest the prophets, and stonest them which are sent unto thee,
Now we are getting somewhere. So Jesus shows here that the children of Abraham, the natural seed, the Pharisees, HYPOCRITES, are the serpents, (vipers). Didn’t John also point them out as being serpents and vipers? Sure he did.
So here is solid proof that the scripture SERPENT is a human man, who is a religious hypocrite. How much more fitting is this with a man who lifts himself up AS GOD?
But now, how do we tie him in as being the king of Babylon? Notice, Jesus told this old Jerusalem, (and don’t forget that Eve is called the Mother of all living and so is New Jerusalem. So it is two cities or nations, or trees, or covenants. Both these cities have a king over them. Both of these kings are sons of God.) Both of these men were anointed by God to be a covering. Notice here that Jesus told this old city, (tree), you are guilty of all the righteous blood shed on earth, beginning with ABEL.
So this positively places the death of Abel, back in this old city, Jerusalem. So how is that?
37 O Jerusalem, Jerusalem, thou that killest the prophets, and stonest them which are sent unto thee, how often would I have gathered thy children together , even as a hen gathereth her chickens under her wings, and ye would not! 38 Behold , your house is left unto you desolate.
So, that old ‘city’ or tree/nation, was left desolate. They had killed and stoned all the prophets and those God sent unto them. It began with Abel. So Cain and Adam are in this old serpent city.
How does this tie in with Babylon?
Rev 18: 2 And he cried mightily with a strong voice, saying , Babylon the great is fallen , is fallen , and is become the habitation of devils, and the hold of every foul spirit, and a cage of every unclean and hateful bird.
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.
Here we find that Babylon was great and fell twice… twice dead plucked up by the roots.
She is a habitation of devils. Notice, kings of the earth committed fornication with her, and the MERCHANTS waxed RICH through her. Rich churches. Rich man. Rich cherub in Eden. Merchandizing the things of God. Selling the things of God = mark of the beast.
5 For her sins have reached unto heaven, and God hath remembered her iniquities
God REMEMBERS her INIQUITIES. He was perfect, until INIQITY was found in him. God remembers this.
Now for proof that she is the same one we started with, in Isa 47: (same words here):
7 How much she hath glorified herself, and lived deliciously , so much torment and sorrow give her: for she saith in her heart, I sit a queen, and am no widow, and shall see no sorrow.
8 Therefore shall her plagues come in one day, death, and mourning, and famine; and she shall be utterly burned with fire: for strong is the Lord God who judgeth her.
What ties her undoubtedly with the old Jerusalem, which Jesus identified as serpents:
24 And in her was found the blood of prophets, and of saints, and of all that were slain upon the earth.
24 And in her was found the blood of prophets, and of saints, and of all that were slain upon the earth.
See, the very same words here…she is guilty of all the blood of prophets and of saints which were slain on this earth.
This is concrete proof that old Jerusalem, old anointed Cherub, Adam, (the one cast out of Eden) is this old serpent, whore against God, city which has murdered all the righteous on this earth, beginning with Abel.
And I can assure you that this wicked, carnal man, who hated God and saints, also killed the righteous Mother of all living, Eve.
How does this fit with king of Babylon?
Rev 17: 4 And the woman was arrayed in purple and scarlet colour, and decked with gold and precious stones and pearls, having a golden cup in her hand full of abominations and filthiness of her fornication: 5 And upon her forehead was a name written , MYSTERY, BABYLON THE GREAT, THE MOTHER OF HARLOTS AND ABOMINATIONS OF THE EARTH.
If you run a study on those colors, and stones, pearls, here, you will find that this is that old law tabernacle, which the Israelites made in the wilderness. It is that old tree of death, LAW. Adam/Satan, is the king over this old city, Babylon.
It is the same description of old Babylon, in Isa 47.
18 And the woman which thou sawest is that great city, which reigneth over the kings of the earth.
So see here, that this woman rules over the kings of the earth. It began in Eden and runs all the way till the end, when Jesus comes and does away with this wicked son of God, Satan.
Now to prove that the old dragon, serpent, Satan and devil are all the same person:
Rev. 20: 1 And I saw an angel come down from heaven, having the key of the bottomless pit and a great chain in his hand. 2 And he laid hold on the dragon, that old serpent, which is the Devil, and Satan, and bound him a thousand years,
This first king over this earth, had to be done away with, before the second son, or anointed King could come and take the throne and rule on this earth. Read on in this chapter and you will see Jesus come, after Satan, or Adam, is shut up.
After this, in chapter 21, we see the new heaven and earth come, as Jesus takes his rightful place as King of this earth. He is not there now, and that is what I am trying to warn you all about. Adam is STILL ruling on this earth. That is WHY HE TAKES PEOPLE BACK INTO THAT OLD LAW COVENANT.
He can only have the DUST or human flesh, to rule over. He cannot rule in the Spirit or over those who walk after the Spirit and not in the flesh. If you go back to law, saying women must be silent, you are under old Adam, or Satan, or tree of knowledge of good and evil = LAW. Any old PROPHET, claiming to be of God, since Jesus came on this earth, is that old serpent, going back to LAW. God said He only speaks in these last days by his Son, Jesus. Not by some old prophet, which is that old covenant, which Adam is king over.
It makes no difference how many so-called miracles they do, they are under Satan, or they would not wish to put some down and others up, and go back under law. Jesus said, his people are ALL ONE. No male or female, in Christ. So those who put women down, are under this old evil Serpent spirit of king of Babylon, Adam.
Now the thing I wish to show you in this message, now that we have proven that old Adam is this old serpent, anointed cherub, and king of Babylon, let me show you something you all need to be very careful about.
This wicked Adam/Satan, serpent, is still ruling this earth today. That is why all the violence is here. He has his words in Scripture, same as Jesus and God do. He is the one who deals in fury, wrath and violence. God hates violence. He is not the guilty one. Adam is. Because God anointed this son with power, before he became wicked, he still has that power and still rules this earth. There are two different messages all through Scripture. It is the tree of death (law), and the tree of life, (grace). You may partake of either one. Most are still eating of that tree of death, which Adam is the King over.
All preachers, who make merchandize or sell or take pay, are servants of this wicked one. It is his evil spirit. All who take you back to law, at any point, is of this wicked one. All who claim to be prophet, since Jesus, is of this wicked one.
All who claim that women must be silent are of this wicked one.
Adam is the one who required animal sacrifices. God tells in Isa one and 66, that he hates these things. He asks, who required this of you? See, it is revealing that the words of Adam, Satan, are in Scripture, posing as the words of the Lord. He is Lord of this earth. He is the god of this world system and that is why we are told to not be conformed to this world.
If you keep holidays, you are conforming to this world, and Adam, or Satan, can have full control over you and bring his wrath on you. There is no protection to those who worship or honour idols. All of the holidays are idols, and so leaves you under the king of Babylon, not of New Jerusalem.
If you try to go to God or serve God through some old prophet, church, or anything OTHER THAN JESUS CHRIST, you are under the king of Babylon and that is Satan or serpent.
He can destroy you if he chooses, for only in Grace, or Jesus Christ, do we have God’s protection.
Notice that God calls this a great city. Babylon is a great city. It is not a tiny, puny thing of no consequence. She says in Isa 47, I am and none else. That is old Adam,…saying I am God.
But God still says to him, you are just a MAN, and a wicked man, at that.
