Video #7 Plucked Up by the Roots (Part 2)

 

Reference 1:

Daniel 7:1-4

1 In the first year of Belshazzar king of Babylon Daniel had a dream and visions of his head upon his bed: then he wrote the dream and told the sum of the matters. 2 Daniel spake and said, I saw in my vision by night, and behold, the four winds of the heaven strove upon the great sea.  3 And four great beasts came up from the sea, diverse one from another. 4 The first was like a lion and had eagle’s wings: I beheld till the wings thereof were plucked, and it was lifted up from the earth, and made stand upon the feet as a man, and a man’s heart was given to it.

First Beast

Lion with eagle’s wings plucked off (Daniel 7:4)

The symbol of the Britain is the lion, and the worldwide British empire lost it international power.  The plucking off the eagle’s wing could refer to the American revolution.  It was after the revolution that Britain started to lose its power.

 

Reference 2:

From the verses and text that follows it appears that the end time Babylon is referencing the United States and according to Ezekiel 39:6 it will be destroyed by fire.  Maybe nuclear holocaust.

Ezekiel 39:6, I will send fire on Magog and on those who dwell securely in the coastlands, and they shall know that I am the LORD.

Fire also destroys those that dwell in the cost lands.

The word for coast lands is also translated in other places as “a far off“, “at the ends of the earth” and “beyond the sea”.  (Potentially another superpower that comes to the aide of Israel)

Revelations 18, Nation Babylon/Daughter of Babylon

Summary Description

The Bible describes a powerful end-time city and the nation it represents as “Babylon” and the “Daughter of Babylon”.  Babylon will be the greatest of the great nations, born from a motherland, composed of a multitude, a literal melting pot of all nations.  Babylon is depicted as the wealthiest of the nations, the world center of manufacturing, commercia and agricultural production.

Her location is to the west of Jerusalem, “Beyond the rivers of Ethiopia”.  This end-time society will also be a great consumer of the worlds products with merchant ships filling her many harbors.  The land will be fully developed and mapped with many cities.  Air travel and military security are some of her greatest assets.

Babylon and her people, who were once recognized as the “lady of kingdoms” will become preoccupied with pleasures, luxuries and higher education.  She will also become arrogant in her attitude toward the Lord of heaven.  She will give herself to drugs, occult practices, and great immorality.  Perversion will become her accepted lifestyle.

The sins of her national leaders will be exposed for all the world to see.  The rumors of terrors and coming destruction will cause multitudes to flee her cities and seek shelter in their own homelands.

The once “glory of kingdoms” will come under severe judgement and the chastening hand of the Lord who Himself made her great.
