Alas, Alas Babylon-USA
“Standing afar off for the fear of her torment, saying, Alas, alas, that great city Babylon, that mighty city! For in one hour is thy judgment come. And saying, Alas, alas, that great city... For in one hour so great riches is come to nought. And every shipmaster, and all the company in ships, and sailors, and as many as trade by sea, stood afar off, And cried when they saw the smoke of her burning, saying, what city is like unto this great city! And they cast dust on their heads, and cried, weeping and wailing, saying, Alas, alas, that great city... For in one hour is she made desolate” - (Rev.18:10, 16-18).
On Aug.30., 1945, just three weeks after they A- bombed Hiroshima and Nagasaki, the Association of Los Alamos Scientists (ALAS) formed at a meeting in Los Alamos, New Mexico. They had no idea of the Bible truth of the word ‘Alas.’ It is only six times in the N.T., all in (Rev.18), prophesying of Babylon-USA who has now conquered Babylon-Iraq. ‘Alas’ is a word used to express great sorrow and grief.
Soon the nuclear bombs that we created in Los Alamos will fall upon U.S. and many will come over Alas-ka and strike U.S. from the north and make us desolate. The “A-bomb-a-nation of desolation” will fall upon U.S. for all our wicked abominations, especially fornication which causes abortion and sodomy. “Then shall they know that I am the Lord, when I have laid the land most desolate because of all their abominations which they have committed” - (Ek.33:29). For all our sorrow and grief that we poured upon Babylon-Iraq with our bombs, murdering many thousands in our unjust, unprovoked war of aggression, now the sorrow and grief will fall upon U.S. - Alas, alas, Babylon-USA.
‘Alas, Babylon’ is a 1959 novel by American writer Pat Frank. It was one of the first post apocalyptic novels of the nuclear age. The novel deals with the effects of a nuclear bomb attack on the U.S. by Russia. The novel’s title is taken from (Rev.18:10).
Notice that ‘alas’ is doubled three times as God shows us the extreme sorrow and grief that God righteously brings upon wicked Babylon as He doubles her punishment - “Reward her even as she rewarded you, and double unto her double according to her works: in the cup which she has filled fill to her double” - (Rev.18:6). “...bring upon them the day of evil, and destroy them with double destruction” - (Jer.16:18). God’s breastplate of judgment is doubled - (Ex.28:15,16) - for good and evil.
The cry of lamentation by the world over the burning of Babylon is very bitter as they realize the calamity upon them, as the sailors look upon their destruction from their ships. They cast dust on their heads, weeping and wailing and saying, “Alas, alas, that great city.” All the merchants who were made rich by her weep and mourn, not for all the millions of people burnt up, but because “no man buyeth their merchandise any more” - (18:11). But no sooner has the fornicating harlot gone down amid her judgment fires, that a voice springs up spontaneously over the whole universe by the saints of God - “rejoice over her, thou heaven, and ye holy apostles and prophets; for God hath avenged you on her. And after these things I heard a great voice of much people is heaven, saying , Alleluia; Salvation, and glory, and honour, and power, unto the Lord our God: For true and righteous are his judgments: for he hath judged the great whore, which did corrupt the earth with her fornication, and hath avenged the blood of his servants at her hand. And again they said, Alleluia. And her smoke rose up for ever and ever” - (Rev.18:20 and 19:1-3).
The tribulation saints that were persecuted and murdered by the Beast, and endured all the sorrow, weeping and grief, will now have their sorrow turned to joy over God’s righteous judgment upon the wicked people. “Verily, verily, I say unto you, That ye shall weep and lament, but the world shall rejoice: and ye shall be sorrowful, but your sorrow shall be turned into joy” - (Jn.16:20).
There is only one city called Babylon in the whole world and that’s Babylon, N.Y. on Long Island. Nobody in the world wanted that wicked name for their city but U.S. and it stands for the whole wicked USA. Through our great riches and power we have corrupted the earth with our physical fornication and soon our President-Antichrist will cause the world to worship him and commit spiritual fornication.
Are you saved and born again and ready for the rapture? If not, repent of your sins and believe in Christ in your heart by faith and you will receive forgiveness of sins and be saved from hell and become a new born again creature in Christ having eternal life. Born again describes what happens to you when you’re truly saved. Jesus said - “That which is born of the flesh is flesh; and that which is born of the Spirit is spirit. Marvel not that I said unto thee, Ye must be born again” - (Jn.3:6,7). O do not spurn the love and grace of God in His beloved Son on the cross or the wrath of God abides upon you. “For the wages of sin is death; but the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord” - (Rom.6:23).
