The Alliance of Great Nations and the Fall of Babylon

The future kingdom of Babylon is one of the very interesting studies on the last days. The nation of Greenland as prophesied in the Bible is so far the most controversial. Well, let us put more details on these two nations as prophesied.

 

As already discussed, the events of the last days are just the repetition of past biblical events. Daniel spoke of the last seven years as the "Confirmation of the Covenant." For example, the kingdom of Babylon reach its zenith during King Nebuchadnezzar's conquest of the kingdom of Judah way back in 586 BC. Egypt, Tyre and Sidon also fell under him during those times. The kingdom shall rise again as prophesied in the Bible. Secular and Bible history do not actually record if Babylon ruled over Egypt after that. King Nebuchadnezzar simply ransacked and looted Egypt and then he left with a lot of booty. The Bible says, this is a reward for the king for conquering Tyre.

Ezek 29:18-20
"Son of man, Nebuchadnezzar king of Babylon drove his army in a hard campaign against Tyre; every head was rubbed bare and every shoulder made raw. Yet he and his army got no reward from the campaign he led against Tyre. Therefore this is what the Sovereign LORD says: I am going to give Egypt to Nebuchadnezzar king of Babylon, and he will carry off its wealth. He will loot and plunder the land as pay for his army. I have given him Egypt as a reward for his efforts because he and his army did it for me, declares the Sovereign LORD.

This prophecy was fulfilled when Nebuchadnezzar finally marched through Egypt as prophesied in Jer 46:13 and Ezek 29:19-20. Judah relied on Egypt for her defences but he Bible says this is useless. It was recorded that Egypt withdrew its support and went back to their own land upon hearing about Nebuchadnezzar's army besieging Jerusalem (Jer 37:5-7).

 

This are all prophecies that were fulfilled in the past but will again be repeated in the future for the confirmation of the covenant. Notice in the later part on Ezekiel's prophecy on the lament over Egypt:

Ezek 32:7-8
When I snuff you out, I will cover the heavens and darken their stars; I will cover the sun with a cloud, and the moon will not give its light. All the shining lights in the heavens I will darken over you; I will bring darkness over your land, declares the Sovereign LORD.

This is no longer talking about the past as this has not yet happened in Egypt. This already speaking about the future of Egypt, still ahead of us. Darkness, clouds and gloom is actually one of the eminent signs of Christ's return (Matt 24:29; Isa 13:10; 34:4; Amos 5:18; Joel 2:1-2, among so many other prophecies). Also, in order to understand the prophecies, we must learn that Egypt in the future and the prophecies is no longer the Egypt in the Middle East. The modern Egypt is the U.S.A., he is Manasseh, the son of Joseph to an Egyptian wife. For more details, read "The Real Roots of America." We need also to understand that the modern Tyre is the city of New York, the modern day ports of Tyre and Sidon are the ports of New York and New Jersey. Read "New York City: The Throne of the Antichrist" for details. It follows also in the prophecies that the fall of modern Egypt, the U.S.A. is the reward for the future symbolic king Nebuchadnezzar for the conquest of New York City, the modern day Tyre. The reward should be a downfall of a rich, great and powerful nation. That is why America is considered the modern day Egypt and the last day Babylon. This can not apply now to the original Egypt in the Middle East, who at present is in turmoil, hardly significant in regards to the prophetic Egypt. In the Book of Daniel, it says about the coming world ruler the Antichrist--

Dan 11:43
He will gain control of the treasures of gold and silver and all the riches of Egypt...

Again, the end times Egypt is rich, fit as a reward for the Antichrist. Look at the history of America, the modern Egypt. One amazing prophecy has been fulfilling on her without our knowledge. In fact, all the prophecies about Egypt in the Bible is all about the U.S.A. For example check the prophecies in Ezek 31: 1-9 comparing Egypt to a big cedar tree. It described how Egypt or America rose to become the envy of nations. It is the world's most powerful nation, "it towered higher than all the trees of the field." It is the world's melting pot where "birds of the air nested in its boughs, all the beasts of the field gave birth under its branches; all the great nations lived in its shade." It is also a beautiful, very fertile land land, "It was majestic in beauty with its spreading boughs, for its roots went down to the abundant waters." There is no other nation today that fits these descriptions. Yet it was God who made it beautiful-- "I made it beautiful with abundant branches, the envy of all the trees of Eden in the garden of God." Even the old Egypt does not fit these descriptions. America is a beautiful country because of the blessings of God to Joseph, to his sons, Ephraim and Manasseh.

Deut 33:13-17
About Joseph he said:

"May the LORD bless his land with the precious dew from heaven above and with the deep waters that lie below; with the best the sun brings forth and the finest the moon can yield; with the choicest gifts of the ancient mountains and the fruitfulness of the everlasting hills; with the best gifts of the earth and its fullness and the favor of him who dwelt in the burning bush.
 

Let all these rest on the head of Joseph, on the brow of the prince among his brothers. In majesty he is like a firstborn bull; his horns are the horns of a wild ox. With them he will gore the nations, even those at the ends of the earth. Such are the ten thousands of Ephraim; such are the thousands of Manasseh."

These are the prophecies of Moses to Joseph and his descendants. These are the times that these prophecies are fulfilled. The glory of America nevertheless is not in our age anymore as we can see that it is now declining economically. That is the same scenario in Europe, who is Ephraim and the other nations of modern Israel (Read What Is Happening to Europe? for details).

 

As the Western world is on the way down because of sins, another world power will rise. Assyria and Babylon will rise again as in the past that will cause their downfall. Eventually the symbolic king of Babylon will conquer the U.S.A., and the modern Pharaoh will set his throne in the great nation "between the seas."

Dan 11:45
He will pitch his royal tents between the seas at the beautiful holy mountain.

The U.S.A. is between two great seas, the Pacific and the Atlantic Oceans. The prophecies have indeed considered the modern geography of the world, far in advance. Check the topic "Who Are the Ten Horns of the Beast? - Part 2" about how the nations will fall.

 

The ancient Babylon was conquered by the Persians under Cyrus the Great to liberate the Jews and rebuild the Holy Temple after 70 years of captivity in Babylon. Cyrus who was commissioned by God for this purpose (2 Chron 36:23) came from the east of Babylon, from the Kingdom of Persia peopled by the Persians, the Elamites and the Medes, the ancient alliance of nations.

 

In the future, Babylon under the Antichrist who doubles as Pharaoh will also fall. Take note that this Babylon is U.S.A. or Egypt. The Bible says that the Antichrist will fall but not by human power.

Dan 8:25
He will cause deceit to prosper, and he will consider himself superior. When they feel secure, he will destroy many and take his stand against the Prince of princes. Yet he will be destroyed, but not by human power.

The Antichrist will be alarmed by the report from the northeast.

Dan 11:44-45
But reports from the east and the north [northeast] will alarm him , and he will set out in a great rage to destroy and annihilate many.

The Antichrist will be alarmed from the land at the northeast because they are the only nation who can defeat him, the only nation who has the power to destroy him. Therefore realizing he has only few time left, he will annihilate many.

The old Babylon was conquered by Cyrus the Great of the Persian Empire from the East.

 

That nation in the northeast of U.S.A. is Greenland. Check Greenland: The Camp of God's Army - Part 1 and also Part 2 for details. For out of Greenland comes the army of God who will destroy the world and the kingdom of the Antichrist. Greenland is the desert in Rev 12:14 and the desert of nations in Ezek 20:33–38. Greenland is wasteland of ice and Isaiah calls it the desert by the sea. Check this prophecy out about this desert:

Isa 21:1-2
An oracle concerning the Desert by the Sea:

Like whirlwinds sweeping through the southland ,
an invader comes from the desert,
from a land of terror.

A dire vision has been shown to me:
The traitor betrays, the looter takes loot.
Elam, attack! Media, lay siege!
I will bring to an end all the groaning she [Babylon] caused.

This is a prophecy for the past as well as the future. It happened the first time when Babylon fell at the hands of Cyrus the Great and later in the last days. Elam and Media becomes symbolic referring to the future alliance of great nations. Read verse 9:

Look, here comes a man in a chariot with a team of horses. And he gives back the answer:
'Babylon has fallen, has fallen!
All the images of its gods lie shattered on the ground!'"

This is the similar verse quoted in the book of Revelation about the fall of Babylon so as to Confirm the Covenant, repeating history:

Rev 14:8
A second angel followed and said, "Fallen! Fallen is Babylon the Great, which made all the nations drink the maddening wine of her adulteries."
 

Rev 18:2
With a mighty voice he shouted:

"Fallen! Fallen is Babylon the Great! She has become a home for demons and a haunt for every evil spirit, a haunt for every unclean and detestable bird.

The prophecies in Revelation about Babylon are yet to occur. One of the differences between the fall of Babylon in the ancient times under the Cyrus the Great and the fall of Babylon in the future is geography. Old Babylon was attacked and invaded from the east, by the Persians. The future Babylon will be attacked from the north "Like whirlwinds sweeping through the southland" by alliance of great nations. Check also this prophecy from Jeremiah:

The new Babylon will be invaded from the north as Jeremiah prophesied.

Jer 50:9
For I will stir up and bring against Babylon an alliance of great nations from the land of the north. They will take up their positions against her, and from the north she will be captured.

Read also Jer 50:41; 48. This nation is clearly what the Antichrist will be alarmed with, the report from the northeast-- the nation of Greenland.

The alliance of great nations is the people taken from the countries all over the world. They are people worthy of God's rescue from the wrath of the Antichrist symbolized as the woman in Rev 12 that were taken to the desert (Greenland) to become God's army (Isa 21:1-2). They are the twelve tribes of Israel who will again repeat their historic conquest of nations under Joshua after spending forty years in the desert. That time, it will be after spending time in the desert of ice by the sea for a period of 1260 days or forty two months or 3-1/2 years.
 

The Bible is indeed an incredible book that already foretold what lies ahead. It is confusing though, that some will think the prophecies have already happened. It is true that they already happened but all will happen again. Then they will know the true God who made all things and made events to happen as prophesied.
