For every nation that commits iniquity, God raises an archetype of Babylon for them and Australia can clearly see this Babylon rising in power and strength proportional to the abominations allowed to commit in this land. In this post, we will explore more about how God will use Babylon on a nation that commits iniquity.
Babylon is Authoritarian
The king answered and said to the Chaldeans, “My decision is firm: if you do not make known the dream to me, and its interpretation, you shall be cut in pieces, and your houses shall be made an ash heap.Dan 2:5
The ruler of Babylon is an authoritarian. Whatever the ruler of Babylon says, it will be implemented in Babylon.
Cush begot Nimrod; he began to be a mighty one on the earth. He was a mighty hunter before the LORD; therefore it is said, “Like Nimrod the mighty hunter before the LORD.” And the beginning of his kingdom was Babel, Erech, Accad, and Calneh, in the land of Shinar.Gen 10:8-10
Even the first ruler of Babylon was called a mighty hunter before (or more accurately “against”) God. This is in complete contrast with Australia which had seven prime ministers in just a decade and the powers of the leaders are extremely limited when compared with any authoritarian rule.
Babylon is Highly Organized
Then they said to one another, “Come, let us make bricks and bake [them] thoroughly.” They had brick for stone, and they had asphalt for mortar. And they said, “Come, let us build ourselves a city, and a tower whose top [is] in the heavens; let us make a name for ourselves, lest we be scattered abroad over the face of the whole earth.”Gen 11:3-4
Authoritarian rule lead to disciplined hierarchy and Babylon is no different. They were able to create a labor force and build a tower to create a name for themselves, all working under the leadership of Nimrod. When God describes about them in verse 6, nothing that they propose to do will be withheld from them.
They run like mighty men, They climb the wall like men of war; Every one marches in formation, And they do not break ranks. They do not push one another; Every one marches in his own column. Though they lunge between the weapons, They are not cut down.Joel 2:7-8
When the book of Joel describes God’s judgment of Israel and Judah, it shows how organized Babylon is.
Babylon is God’s instrument for Judgment
and say to them, ‘Thus says the LORD of hosts, the God of Israel: “Behold, I will send and bring Nebuchadnezzar the king of Babylon, My servant, and will set his throne above these stones that I have hidden. And he will spread his royal pavilion over them.Jer 43:10
We often read about the judgment on Babylon but completely ignore the fact that the ruler of Babylon is God’s servant. God uses the ruler of Babylon to judge nations.
Thus says the LORD: “Behold, a people comes from the north country, And a great nation will be raised from the farthest parts of the earth.Jer 6:22
Babylon did not raise on it’s own but God raised it.
For thus says the LORD God of Israel to me: “Take this wine cup of fury from My hand, and cause all the nations, to whom I send you, to drink it. And they will drink and stagger and go mad because of the sword that I will send among them.”Jer 25:15-16
Babylon is a golden cup in the Lord’s hands filled with wrath of God which God will make all nations which He wants to judge to drink from it to judge them.
Babylon takes treasures of other nations
And Hezekiah was attentive to them, and showed them all the house of his treasures–the silver and gold, the spices and precious ointment, and all his armory–all that was found among his treasures. There was nothing in his house or in all his dominion that Hezekiah did not show them. … Then Isaiah said to Hezekiah, “Hear the word of the LORD: ‘Behold, the days are coming when all that [is] in your house, and what your fathers have accumulated until this day, shall be carried to Babylon; nothing shall be left,’ says the LORD.2 Kgs 20:13,16-17
When Babylon knows about treasures of other nations, it takes it. We have seen this trend in recent years regarding our natural resources, industries taken over and housing market not accessible for an average Australian.
Can Australia be saved from Babylonians?
When Isaiah told about the Babylonian invasion to Hezekiah, it was nearly a hundred years before the actual siege. Just like Hezekiah, Australia (and America) have leaders who currently delay anti-Christ agendas even though they aren’t perfect, and we can clearly see the raising Babylon on the horizon.
Nevertheless the LORD did not turn from the fierceness of His great wrath, with which His anger was aroused against Judah, because of all the provocations with which Manasseh had provoked Him.2 Kgs 23:26
We are in a “grace period” just as the days of Hezekiah or Isaiah, where we can repent and turn back to Him before evil rulers who are against God like Manasseh (Hezekiah’s son) begin to rule, who will seal the fate of Australia. Even if there was a future revival in Australia just like in the days of Josiah (Manasseh’s grandson) God may not hear us if Manasseh like rulers implement laws against God and provoke His anger.
Were they ashamed when they had committed abomination? No! They were not at all ashamed; Nor did they know how to blush. Therefore they shall fall among those who fall; At the time I punish them, They shall be cast down,” says the LORD.Jer 6:15
There are many Christian hypocrites in Australia who are not ashamed of their abominations. They don’t know how to blush. All these people will fall in the hands of the Babylonians.
The rate at which laws that are against God are passed in Australia, in the same rate God is rising Babylon in our own backyard. God had already given several resources, industries and housing market in their hands. He is also giving power to the Babylonians to influence the leaders of Australia. Let us therefore repent and turn back to God.
