That Great City Babylon 
By Servant of God

The City, It's important that you know when God said come out of her My people, what it is you're suppose to come out of.
You need to identify it, you need to document it. He said come out of her.
Let's take a look at Babylon, and identify what she is.
Revelation 17

verse 1 And there came one of the seven angels which had the seven vials, and talked with me, saying unto me, “Come hither; I will shew unto thee the judgment of the great whore that sitteth upon many waters:

What is the angel going to show us?  It's not the whore, it's the judgment, and what's going to happen to her.
verse 2 With whom the kings of the earth have committed fornication, and the inhabiters of the earth have been made drunk with the wine of her fornication.”

Who are these kings of the earth, they're not supernatural entities, they are our own leaders, rulers, and they like to play with her.
verse 3  So he carried me away in the Spirit into the wilderness: and I saw a woman sit upon a scarlet coloured beast, full of names of blasphemy, having seven heads and ten horns.
Now those are supernatural, those are Satan and his ten supernatural kings he brings with him.
verse 4 And the woman was arrayed in purple and scarlet colour, and decked with gold and precious stones and pearls, having a golden cup in her hand full of abominations and filthiness of her fornication:

Her doing business with the world, what kind of business, what she peddles, has no value other then it`s delicacies.

She is Mystery Babylon.
verse 6  And I saw the woman drunken with the blood of the saints, and with the blood of the martyrs of Jesus: and when I saw her, I wondered with great admiration.

Now let God impetrate for you what she is, I want you to know who she is, and what she is, skip down to verse 18.
verse 18  And the woman which thou sawest is that great city, which reigneth over the kings of the earth.

It`s a city, Mystery Babylon the great Harlot is a city. What do you need to run a city? You need the Four Hidden Dynasties, Education, Religion, Economy and Politics, people playing church and playing town.   What are you suppose to come out of?  The city. The harlot. The one that misleads, the one that will take advantage of you, and what`s new under the sun, nothing, let's go back to Genesis.

Now we need to look at the structure of that city.  What was one of the first cities.
Genesis  4

verse 16  And Cain went out from the presence of the LORD, and dwelt in the land of Nod, on the east of Eden.
verse 17  And Cain knew his wife ; and she conceived, and bare Enoch: and he builded a city, and called the name of that city, after the name of his son, Enoch.

Who built that city away from God, Cain did. Some of the cities managers you better be on guard for are the Kenites right? For they are builders of cities.

Let's go to Chapter 10

Genesis Chapter 10
verse 8  And Cush begat Nimrod; he began to be a mighty one in the earth.
verse 9  He was a mighty hunter before the LORD : wherefore it is said, “Even as Nimrod the mighty hunter before the LORD”
verse 10  And the beginning of his kingdom was Babel, and Erech, and Accad, and Calneh, in the land of shinar.

These are cities he built,  Erech is the city Iraq of today, in the land of Iraq.
Genesis Chapter 11

verse 1  And the whole earth was of one language, and of one speech.
verse 2  And it came to pass, as they journeyed from the east, that they found a plain in the land of Shinar: and they dwelt there.

You know where the land of Shinar is, it's Babylon. Babylonia. country of two rivers, Tigris and Euphrates.
verse 3 And they said one to another, “Go to, let us make brick, and burn them throughly,” And they had brick for stone, and slime had they for morter.
verse 4 And they said, “Go to, let us build a city and a tower, whose top may reach unto heaven; and let us make us a name, lest we be scattered abroad upon the face of the whole earth.
verse 5 And the LORD came down to see the city and the tower, which the children of men builded.
verse 6  And the LORD said, “Behold , the people is one, and they have one language: and this they began to do; and now nothing will be restrained from them, which they have imagined to do.
verse 7  Go to, let us go down, and there confound their language, that they may not understand one another's speech.

That tongue will come back when God's Elect are delivered up to Antichrist.
verse 8  So the LORD scattered them abroad from thence upon the face of all the earth; and they left off to build the city.
verse 9  Therefore is the name of it called Babel (confusion) because the LORD did there confound the language of all the earth; and from thence did the LORD scatter them abroad upon the face of the all earth.

Come out of that city, I am not talking about a literal town now, mentally come out of that city, that's the Four Hidden Dynasties.
Now where we are going is God's cup of wrath that's going to get poured out, at the end.  So the prophesy we are reading is about the very end.  Jeremiah 25.
Jeremiah 25

verse 15  For thus saith the LORD God of Israel unto me; take the wine cup of this fury at My hand, and cause all the nations, to whom I send thee, to drink it.

Can God count on you?  What does He mean pour it out? Through the Holy Spirit are you going to let the Holy Spirit speak a language that puts everything back in one language, and straightens things out both sons and daughters? That cup of wrath will pour out of the lips of Gods children.
verse 16  And they shall drink, and be moved, and be mad, because of the sword that I will send among them.

This is the sword of the LORD, it is the Holy Spirit that comes from your mouth, that sword will not allow lies to stand and those trials will be held worldwide.
verse 17 Then I took the cup at the LORD'S hand, and made all the nations to drink, unto whom the LORD had sent me;

Listen carefully who did he send it too, this is prophesy.
verse 18  To wit, Jerusalem, and the cities of Judah, and the kings thereof, and the princes thereof, to make them a desolation, an astonishment, an hissing, and a curse’ as it is this day;
verse 19  Pharaoh king of Egypt, and his servants, and his princes, and all his people;
verse 20  And all the mingled people, and all the kings of the land of Uz, and all the kings of the Philistines, and Ashkelon, and Azzah, and Ekron, and the remnant of Ashdod.

Azzah is the Gaza strip.
verse 21  Edom, and Moab, and the children of Ammon,
verse 22  And all the kings of Tyrus, and all the kings of Zidon, and all the kings of isles which are beyond the sea.

Here you have the Kenites, and their commerce the ships of tarish
verse 23  Dedan, and Tema, and Buz, and all that are in the utmost corners,
verse 24  And all the kings of Arabia, and all the kings of the mingled people that dwell in the desert,
verse 25 And all the kings of Zimri, and all the kings of Elam, and all the kings of the Medes,
verse 26 And all the kings of the north, far and near, one with another, and all the kingdoms of the world, which are upon the face the of the earth; and the king of Sheshach shall drink after them.

Sheshach shall drink last, who is this king of Shesach?  This is a hidden message in the manuscripts, it is where you take the last letter of the Hebrew alphabet and make it the first, and you move this first letter to make it the last, all the way through and then you spell Sheshach, and what it really comes out in Hebrew letters is BBL and we find BBL etched in rocks in documentaries all over this nation and others. Babylon that's what it means. Babylon will be last and don't forget it.  That's important, the last one to drink will be Babylon.  That cup is a cup of correction.  When you speak out in that fresh tongue that tongue is not to harm people but to help people.  But Babylon that city will be the last one to drink the cup of God's wrath.  What it means is, come out of confusion.
verse 27  Therefore thou shalt say unto them, thus saith the LORD of host, the God of Israel; Drink ye, and be drunken, and spue, and fall, and rise no more, because of the sword which I will send among you.”
verse 28  And it shall be, if they refuse to take the cup at thine hand to drink, then shalt thou say unto them, thus saith the LORD of hosts, ye shall certainly drink.
verse 29  For, lo, I begin to bring evil on the city which is called by My name, and should ye be utterly unpunished? Ye shall not be unpunished; for I will call for a sword upon all the inhabitants of the earth, saith the LORD of hosts.
Now back to Revelation 18

Revelation 18
verse 4  And I heard another voice from heaven, saying, “Come out of her, My People, that ye may not partakers of her sins, and that ye receive not of her plagues.

The Harlot is a city.
verse 5  For her sins have reached unto heaven, and God hath remembered her iniquities.
verse 6  Reward her even as she rewarded you, and double unto her double according to her works; in the cup which she hath filled fill to her double.
verse 7  How much she hath glorified herself, and lived deliciously, so much torment and sorrow give her; for she saith in her heart, I sit a queen, and am no widow, and shall see no sorrow.’
verse 8  Therefore shall her plagues come in one day, death, and mourning, and famine; and she shall be utterly burned with fire; for strong is the LORD God Who judgeth her.

Now get ready for verse 9. Here we have one of the four hidden dynasties, the Political Dynasty.
verse 9  And the kings of the earth, who have committed fornication and lived deliciously with her, shall bewail her, and lament for her, when they shall see the smoke of her burning.
verse 10  Standing afar off for the fear of her torment, saying, Alas, alas, that great city Babylon, that mighty city! for in one hour is thy judgment come,’
verse 11  And the merchants of the earth shall weep and mourn over her; for no man buyeth their merchandise any more;

Here we have the Dynasty of Finance.
verse 12   The merchandise of gold, and silver, and precious stones, and of pearls, and fine linen, and purple, and silk, and scarlet, and all thyine wood, and all manner vessels of ivory, and all manner vessels of most precious wood, and of brass, and iron, and marble.
verse 13  And cinnamon, and odours, and ointments, and frankincense, and wine, and oil, and fine flour, and wheat, and beasts, and sheep, and horses, and chariots and slaves, and souls of men.

These are the ingredients of Religion, the Dynasty of Religion.
verse 14  And the fruits that thy soul lusted after are departed from thee, and all things which were dainty and goodly are departed from thee, and thou shalt find them no more at all.

fruits (Strong's Concordance)
opora (op-o'-rah); apparently from the base of NT:3796 and NT:5610; properly, even-tide of the (summer) season (dog-days), i.e. (by implication) ripe fruit:
KJV - fruit.

This is the dynasty of Education.  The word fruits in Greek means opora, it means those that lust after the dog days, the dog days are the closing days, the closing hour the last hour, educating themselves to return of Christ, but there was no fruits there, they educated themselves in the wrong direction. So there you have that city made up of the Four Hidden Dynasties.
verse 15 The merchants of these things, which were made rich by her, shall stand afar off for the fear of her torment, weeping and wailing,
verse 16 And saying Alas, alas, that great city, that was clothed in fine linen, and purple, and scarlet, and decked with gold, and precious stones, and pearls!
verse 17  For in one hour so great riches is come to nought.’ And every shipmaster, and all the company in ships, and sailors, and as many as trade by sea, stood afar off,
verse 18  And cried when they saw the smoke of her burning, saying, ‘What city is like unto this great city!
verse 19  And they cast dust on their heads, and cried, weeping and wailing, saying, Alas, alas, that great city, wherein were made rich all that had ships in the sea by reason of her costliness! for in one hour is she made desolate.
verse 20  Rejoice over her, thou heaven, and ye holy apostles and prophets; for God hath avenged you on her,”
verse 21 And a mighty angel took up a stone like a great millstone, and cast it into the sea, saying, “Thus with violence shall that great city Babylon be thrown down, and shall be found no more at all.
verse 22  And the voice of harpers, and musicians, and of pipers, and trumpeters, shall be heard no more at all in thee; and no craftsman, of whatsoever craft he be, shall be found any more in thee; and the sound of a millstone shall be heard no more at all in thee;
verse 23 And the light of a candle shall shine no more at all in thee; and the voice of the bridegroom and of the bride shall be heard no more at all in thee; for thy merchants were the great men of earth; for by thy sorceries were all nations deceived.”
verse 24  And in her was found the blood of prophets, and of saints, and of all that were slain upon the earth.
So it's the great men of the earth, the politicians, the rulers, that's what runs the city.
