The Wall of Babylon – U.S.A.
her foundations are fallen, her walls are thrown down: for it is the
vengeance of the Lord: take vengeance upon her; as she hath done, do unto her.
Yea, the wall of Babylon shall fall.
Thus saith the Lord of hosts; The broad walls of Babylon shall be
utterly broken, and her high gates shall be burned with fire…” – (Jer.50:15
and 51:44, 58).
God has called me as the Bible watchman and
to stand in my watchtower on the wall and watch and preach what the Lord shows
me. And I’m called especially to warn wicked America to repent of her sins or the wrath of God will fall
upon her. “When I say unto the wicked,
thou shalt surely die; and thou givest him not warning, nor speakest to warn
the wicked from his wicked way, to
save his life; the same wicked man shall die in his iniquity; but his blood will I require at thine hand” – (Ezk.3:18).
These are very sober and awesome words and a great responsibility to this Bible
watchman. May Christ give me courage like Jeremiah – “For, behold, I have made thee this day a defenced
city, and an iron pillar, and brazen walls against the whole land
. . . . “ (Jer.1:18).
If our nation doesn’t repent of its
wickedness, our wall of defense will fall. When I preached my ‘tower tract’
just after 9/11 when our twin towers fell and our Pentagon wall fell, the symbol of our vaunted military, I said ‘we
don’t have walls and towers for defense today because modern-day warfare has
made them obsolete.’ But our nation is building such a wall today. We have started
building a 700 mile wall on our southern border with Mexico. This is only one section of the 2000 mile wall that
will be built from California through Texas. It’s called ‘The Secure Border Initiative’ and is
under the control of the Homeland Security.
It’s been called ‘The Security Fence’ and
it’s very controversial. It’s called by others ‘The Segregation Barrier’ and ‘The
Segregated Wall’ and ‘The Apartheid Wall.’ But there is no doubt that the U.S. is building their first wall of security on our
This Bible watchman is standing on Babylon – U.S.A.’s wall and blowing the trumpet of warning. If our
nation doesn’t repent of its sins, our wall of defense will fall,
our nation will be destroyed and burnt like Babylon of old. Gods righteous vengeance will fall upon U.S.
God will judge us for our violence, for our military bombing and killing many
thousands in whole nations, not for defense but as a devouring empire in
offense. For our backsliding from a Godly heritage, for our murdering of millions
of babies by abortion, for our flaunting of sodomy and fornication, for our
corruption, for our drunkenness and drug abuse, for our rampant divorce, for our
lewd pornography, for our child molestations, for our cheating and lying and
stealing, for our filthy books and movies and TV, for our sorcery, for our
murders, for our covetousness, for our rebellious children, etc. The September
11th judgment of God upon U.S. was a loud wake-up call, like an alarm clock and our
time is running out. The wall of New Babylon – U.S.A. will fall and all our weapons will not prevent it.
Repentance is our only cure. “The horse
is prepared against the day of
battle: but safety is of the Lord” – (Prov.21:31).
It is written in (Prov.18:10,11) “The name of the
Lord is a strong tower: the righteous runneth into it, and is safe. The rich
man’s wealth is his strong city, and as a high wall in his own deceit.” In (vs.10) God’s Word shows us first
the true security. When a person calls upon the name of the Lord Jesus to save
him in true belief and repentance of sin, he is saved and has eternal security.
You have run into the strong tower and been made righteous and safe. In (vs.11)
it shows us the false and deceitful security of the rich. The U.S., with our great riches, has built H-bombs and a
military stronger than any nation in history. We have gotten proud and
conceited and believe this has given U.S. security, but it will prove to be false security because
we have become wicked and turned our back on the Lord. Our Wall St. securities and bonds and riches and laying up treasure
and things of this world will not protect U.S. at the end.
Israel is also building a wall today and it’s a great
fulfillment of prophecy that the saints have waited for nearly 200 years. “Know therefore and understand, that from the
going forth of the commandment to restore and to build Jerusalem unto the
Messiah the prince shall be seven weeks, and three score and two weeks: the
street shall be built again, and the wall, even in troublous times” –
(Dan.9:25). When Israel’s wall is finished it will be 425 miles long. It’s a concrete wall, 25
feet high, crowned with watchtowers and snipers in the towers. It has fences,
electric ground sensors, thermal imaging, video cameras, unmanned aerial vehicles,
and razor wire. The wall goes through Israel’s length and also through Jerusalem, dividing Jews from Arabs. Yes, Israel’s wall is being built today in these very troublous times
and Daniels’ prophecy is being fulfilled.
Now hear this – the same Israeli firm that is building the wall in Israel today has
been awarded the contract, along with Boeing, to build the U.S. wall on the
Mexican border. Elbit
Systems of Israel, who has the talent and expertise and has been employed for
years in protecting Israel’s borders, will now be put to use on U.S. borders to keep them secure. JerUSAlem – surely USA in the center of Jerusalem means something special. In the center of the Middle East peace talks is the president of the U.S. He constantly meddles in Israel’s business and only so far has muddied the waters but
one day our president will succeed. The only one on the world scene that can
broker a peace covenant between Jews and Moslems is the president of the U.S. The president will confirm the covenant after he has
brokered it and then you will know he is the Beast. There will be a temporary
false peace and the president will be hailed as a great peacemaker, but this
peace breaks out in the worst war in Earth’s history – Armageddon – (Dan.9:27).
Israel’s wall shall fall also because God has said that the
Lord Jesus is her safety - not her weapons – “And so all Israel shall be
saved: as it is written, There shall come out of Zion the
Deliverer, and shall turn away ungodliness form Jacob” – (Rom.11:26). Yes, safety is of the Lord Jesus
Christ. So even though Israel’s wall shall fall, they shall not be destroyed. The
Lord Jesus will come back at Armageddon and save the Jewish remnant.
Old Babylon’s wall of defense fell just after the king read God’s
handwriting on the King’s ‘wall’ in
his palace. That night the enemy attacked and Babylon’s wall of defense fell. The U.S. has now conquered Old Babylon-Iraq. The U.S. is the last empire prophesied in (Dan.2), the feet of
iron and clay and we are the New Babylon prophesied of in Revelation.
It is written in (Eph.2:14,15)
“For he is our Peace, who hath made both
one, and hath broken down the middle wall
of partition between us. Having abolished in his flesh the enmity, even the law
of commandments contained in ordinances; for to make in himself of twain one new man, so making peace.”
No wonder Israel’s Wall and the U.S. Wall are being called a ‘Segregated
Wall’ and an ‘Apartheid Wall.’ It is both a wall of security and a wall of
separation because they have no peace with God. Peace must be first in the
heart, inward, before it can be outward. And God’s peace offering in His
beloved Son on the Cross – “Therefore being
justified by faith, we have peace with God through our Lord Jesus Christ” – (Rom.5:1). Israel and the U.S. and the world desperately need the wall of separation
taken down in their hearts. They need to make peace with God through the
perfect Jew, Jesus Christ. We don’t need our nation “fenced with high walls” – (Du.3:5). We need Jesus Christ as our
savior – our wall of de-fence – amen. Be saved and the walls in your heart come
American needs to repent of their sins on an
individual basis. If you’re not saved and born again in Christ, repent of your
sins by faith in your heart by believing on Christ for forgiveness of sins.
Born again describes what happens to you when you’re truly saved, you become a
new Holy Spirit person in Christ. “Which
were born, not of blood, nor of the will
of the flesh, nor of the will of man, but of God” – (Jn.1:3). “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” –
This and only this, is the solution to the
problem of sin, bigotry and hatred among the peoples of earth, regardless of what
governments try to do to wipe out race hatred, religious hatred and bigotry.
Only by being saved by Jesus Christ can the barrier be taken down in people’s
hearts. When this happens, regardless of color, race or whatsoever, brothers
and sisters in Christ will love one another. Churches can’t do it because so
few people are truly born again. God has
appointed salvation for walls – “We
have a strong city; Salvation will
God appoint for walls and bulwarks” – (Is.26:1).
Soon the Prince of Peace, the Lord Jesus,
will return as King of Kings and Lord of Lords and this whole world will know
peace. “And he shall judge among the
nations, and shall rebuke many people: and they shall beat their swords into
plowshares, and their spears into pruning hooks: nation shall not lift up sword
against nation, neither shall they learn
war any more” – (Is.2:4).
And at the end of the 1000 year millennium, New Jerusalem will come down from God
out of heaven shining as a precious stone and we which are saved shall walk in
the light of it – (Rev.21:24) for eternity. And the wall will be 6000 miles long and 216 feet high and made of jasper stone,
very precious. It’s not a wall of separation and security and defense but a giant wall of salvation – “Violence shall no more be heard in the
land, wasting nor destruction within thy borders; but thou shalt call thy walls Salvation, and thy gates praise”
– (Is.60:18) – it is God’s precious and beautiful wall of salvation for all
those saved by the Savior Jesus Christ.
God gives us two examples of walls of salvation.
First, when the spies in Jericho
were saved by being let down the city wall with a scarlet cord by Rahab. And Rahab and her Gentile
family were saved by the wall of salvation, and also by her faith when her
house alone was spared. Second, when Paul was saved from death in Damascus by being let down the wall in a basket – (Acts 9:25
and 2 Cor.11:33). Physical walls of salvation – amen.
When you receive God’s salvation in Christ
by faith, the wall of sin comes tumbling down like the
walls of Jericho and you have eternal security. The wall surrounding New Jerusalem shows eternal security through our
salvation by Gods’ beloved Son. It shows us that our security and safely comes
from the Lord Jesus. Only those that are truly saved will ever walk through the
gates of the wall into God’s golden eternal city. The wall is made of precious stone
because God’s Son shed His precious blood on the cross for our salvation – “But with the precious blood of Christ, as of
a lamb without blemish and without
spot” – (I Pet.1:19).
Be eternally secure – be saved today.
