Exactly Who Is Babylon?

Hi B____,

It is good to hear from you, and I am encouraged that you are being edified by the web page.
The title of that link is “Muslim Demographics,” and it does lead you to believe that, from a statistical point of view, the whole world will be Muslim in just a few more years.
The holy spirit has given you a very godly response to such a theory as that. You are exactly right when you say:

But just so you know, “Babylon” is called ‘Babylon’ because it was the seed of Noah with whom God has a covenant:

Gen 9:8 And God spake unto Noah, and to his sons with him, saying,
Gen 9:9 And I, behold, I establish my covenant with you, and with your seed after you.

It was with Noah and all of his sons, “and with your seed after you,” that God had a covenant before He had a covenant with Abraham. Abraham was called “out of Babylon” (Ur of the Chaldeans), but it was Noah’s children, God’s own covenant people, who built the tower of Babel and later the city of Babylon. What this tells us is that all religions are part of Babylon, and not just Christianity. ‘Babylon’ is religion without and in rebellion against God. Babylon is any and all who claim to know God, but who hate God’s doctrines. That includes orthodox Christians, the Muslims, the Hindus, and the Buddhists, even if the Buddhists claim that their ancestors are their Gods. It is all ‘Babylon’ because it is all in rebellion to the revealed word of God.
The “great whore” rides on the beast and “all the world” wonders after the beast… and worships the dragon. Yes, this is first and primarily within, but it is also true of all of Noah’s and Adam’s seed. It is not just the Christian world. “All men” are in covenant with God through Adam and Noah, and “all men” will experience “one event.”

Rev 13:3 And I saw one of his heads as it were wounded to death; and his deadly wound was healed: and all the world wondered after the beast.
Rev 13:4 And they worshipped the dragon which gave power unto the beast: and they worshipped the beast, saying, Who [ is] like unto the beast? who is able to make war with him?
Ecc 9:2 All things come alike to all: there is one event to the righteous, and to the wicked; to the good and to the clean, and to the unclean; to him that sacrificeth, and to him that sacrificeth not: as is the good, so is the sinner; [ and] he that sweareth, as [ he] that feareth an oath.
Ecc 9:3 This is an evil among all things that are done under the sun, that there is one event unto all: yea, also the heart of the sons of men is full of evil, and madness is in their heart while they live, and after that they go to the dead.

That “one event” is “an evil experience of evil” out of which we are all to be delivered in the end.

Ecc 1:13 I applied my heart to inquiring and exploring by wisdom concerning all that is done under the heavens: it is an experience of evil Elohim has given to the sons of humanity to humble them by it.

So all of organized religion with doctrines contrary to the Words of God are in Babylon, and it is not limited just to Christianity.
Muslims actually consider Christ to be one of their most revered prophets, and they even admit that Christ was born of a virgin. But they do not consider Him to be the Son of God, and they certainly do not consider Christ to be superior to Mohammed.
But in the eyes of God, both the Muslim and the Christian religions are worshiping “another Jesus” with “another spirit” and “another gospel.”

2Co 11:4 For if he that cometh preacheth another Jesus, whom we have not preached, or if ye receive another spirit, which ye have not received, or another gospel, which ye have not accepted, ye might well bear with him.

There are other links at the right side of that link which show that the statistics used to reach the fearful conclusions in that video do not include or consider that there are many factors which will change those statistics. One of those factors is the fact that some Muslims do convert to Christianity and are assimilated into western society. Another factor is that our secular western culture is no respecter of religions, and tends to corrupt both Christians and Muslims alike.
The fact that both religions are willing to kill one another is proof that neither has any regard for the doctrines of Jesus Christ. His Words are “foolishness” to both religions.

Luk 6:27 But I say unto you which hear, Love your enemies, do good to them which hate you,
1Co 2:13 Which things also we speak, not in the words which man’s wisdom teacheth, but which the Holy Ghost teacheth; comparing spiritual things with spiritual.
1Co 2:14 But the natural man receiveth not the things of the Spirit of God: for they are foolishness unto him: neither can he know them, because they are spiritually discerned.

I hope this all helps to confirm to you that God is indeed “working all things after the counsel of His own Will.”

Eph 1:11 In whom also we have obtained an inheritance, being predestinated according to the purpose of him who worketh all things after the counsel of his own will:

I realize you are deaf, but if you can understand these spiritual words, your “hearing” is better than any orthodox Christian minister in the world.

Your brother in Christ,
Mike
