Babylon. What does that word mean to you? Perhaps very little. However, after reading this article, its importance may be increased in your eyes, if only something to consider as we face the state of our world.

Babylon was the nation that conquered Judah and took them captive.

The word is also associated with the ancient Tower of Babel. The Lord confused the language of mankind there because they were trying to reach heaven by means of their own strength.

“Therefore its name was called Babel, because there the LORD confused the language of all the earth” (Genesis 11:9).1

This is the origin of the English word “babble,” which means confusion and meaningless talking.

Therefore, this article is going to focus on captivity, confusion, the arrogance of mankind, and sin.

Last of all, Babylon appears in the final book of the New Testament. This is how she is described. It is not a happy portrayal, neither for the world or the Church.

“The woman was arrayed in purple and scarlet, and adorned with gold and jewels and pearls, holding in her hand a golden cup full of abominations and the impurities of her sexual immorality. And on her forehead was written a name of mystery: ‘Babylon the great, mother of prostitutes and of earth’s abominations.’ And I saw the woman, drunk with the blood of the saints, the blood of the martyrs of Jesus” (Revelation 17:4–6).

This is what is coming. In fact, is already here.

Christians who oppose sexual abominations are called hate-filled bigots who are somehow opposed to people just “loving one another.”

However, this will be Babylon’s end:

“Then a mighty angel took up a stone like a great millstone and threw it into the sea, saying, ‘So will Babylon the great city be thrown down with violence, and will be found no more; and the sound of harpists and musicians, of flute players and trumpeters, will be heard in you no more, and a craftsman of any craft will be found in you no more, and the sound of the mill will be heard in you no more, and the light of a lamp will shine in you no more, and the voice of bridegroom and bride will be heard in you no more, for your merchants were the great ones of the earth, and all nations were deceived by your sorcery. And in her was found the blood of prophets and of saints, and of all who have been slain on earth’” (Revelation 18:21–24).

At the end of the Book of Revelation and the end of the Bible, Jesus said, “Surely I am coming soon” (Revelation 22:20a).

John responded, and I join my voice with his:

 “Amen. Come, Lord Jesus!” (Revelation 22:20b).
