THE DESTRUCTION OF BABYLON THE GREAT AND THE UN RESOLUTION NUMBER 666

THE "CHRISTIAN" WORLDWIDE CRUSADE

“The woman was clothed in purple and scarlet, and she was adorned with gold and precious stones and pearls, and she had in her hand a golden cup that was full of disgusting things and the unclean things of her sexual immorality. 5 On her forehead was written a name, a mystery: “Babylon the Great, the mother of the prostitutes and of the disgusting things of the earth”

(Revelation 17:4,5)

THE NEW WORLD ORDER ACCORDING PRESIDENT BUSH (FATHER)

THE CRUSADE AS THIRD WORLWIDE RELIGIOUS WAR

As we can observe, the current worldwide reality is firm; the Western Christendom Imperialism, mainly represented by the United States of America (Mainly Protestant), Union Europe (Mainly Catholic) and Russian Nation (Mainly Orthodox), is destroying the none “Christian” Nations in Middle East (and in another part of the World), mainly represented by the Muslim religions, since 1991.

In January 17th, 1991 begun the World Religious War against Iraq (Babylon) (Operation Desert Shield), with an army of a coalition of 34 Western Nations, with 940 000 soldiers (mainly “Christian” Western Nations), against 530 000 Iraqi soldiers (Representing the Muslim Religions). This World Religious War has been decided by the UN.

Since 1991 we see a Worldwide Modern Crusade made by the Western Nations, which spear head is United States of America and its Western Europe allies, and Russia, mainly “Christian” Nations. Israel Nation (as Judaic religion) is representing the American imperialism in Middle East.

DAESH, tries to federate a Muslim coalition under a United front with the purpose of the constitution of an United Muslim (Sunni) Caliphate in the Middle East (which was initially, the goal of Saddam Hussein, in 1990). These Arabic Nations and religious Muslim Militias are the  spearhead against “Christian” and Judaic Western Imperialism in Middle East. The World Trade Center attacks, in New-York, United States of America (3000 deaths, 6000 wounded persons), is to be put in the framework of this Religious World Wide War.

The date of September 11th, 2001 is in response to the date of September 11th 1991, when President Bush (Father) made his speech about the “New World Order”, seven days before Tishri 10th, 1991… The attacks of the World Trade Center would be the symbol of this “New World Order”…

It seems obvious that we must revise the biblical study of the prophecy of the Downfall and the period of the Destruction of Babylon the Great, in the light of the biblical context, that is, also by taking into account Jesus Christ’s statements about this matter and regarding the current world events. We’ll have the surprise to see that there is a harmony with this new biblical understanding with what we observe. At the end of this Bible study, we’ll see when occurred the Downfall of Babylon the Great, and the beginning of the period of its Destruction, reasoning from the Bible, and from the current worldwide events.

THE WORLDWIDE "CHRISTIAN" IMPERIALISM

When we read what it is written in Matthew 25:31-46, we can remark something very strange about Jesus Christ’s prophetical description regarding the worldwide situation, just before the Great Tribulation, that is, after the destruction of Babylon the Great… Jesus Christ is describing the worldwide people as if the majority would be “Christian” or would know him…

In another biblical text, in Matthew 7:13-23, particularly in the verses 21-23, Jesus Christ prophetically describes the worldwide people as if they were in the majority, “Christians”… How to understand this Jesus Christ’s prophetic description of the world situation just before the Great Destruction and after the Downfall and the Destruction the Babylon the Great? Jesus Christ seems prophetically to describe the main “Christians” Western Nations Imperialism as victorious worldwide force.

In Matthew chapter 13:24-30, 36-43, Jesus Christ made a prophetic description of the worldwide religious situation, it is also as if the majority of worldwide people would be "Christians". That is, in the moment of the Judgment of Tishri 10th (Just before the Great Tribulation itself): one part of the humanity is “fine seed” (True Christians (The 7000 (144000) and the Great Crowd (Matthew 25:31-40, 46b; Revelation 7)), and the other part of the humanity “weeds” (false Christians (Matthew 25:41-46a)).

Jesus Christ said that this “weeds” would be “oversowed” in the “field” that represents the “world” (Matthew 13:24,25,38). How to understand this prophetic description? In the Prophecy of Daniel chapters 2,7,8 we read that in the last days of this system of things the world would be under a worldwide Roman Late Antiquity Influence. It has been mainly relayed in the History through the western religious imperialism of Catholicism, through Spain, France and Great Britain. After, it has been relayed through the Protestant Western imperialism of United States of America and its Western Catholic Allies in Europe, represented, in the Middle East by Israel, created as State since 1948 and Egypt. Also, this Roman Influence has been relayed through the Orthodox Churches, mainly represented by Russian People.

When we observe the political and military situation of the world, we can say that the great part of it, is under the influence of these two imperialisms of Christendom (Western Power (USA and its allies) and Eastern Power (Russia and its allies)), which represents the main spiritual force all over the world as Worldwide Roman Late Antiquity Influence. So we understand, when Jesus Christ described prophetically the world as if it would be “Christian”, we understand that he was describing prophetically the effect of this worldwide imperialism of the Christendom (weeds) that Satan used to “oversaw weeds” in the “field”, the world, in the past time, in the beginning of the Christianity (fine seed). If we understand (and accept) this important biblical understanding, we’ll understand another very important biblical point.

In Matthew 7:21-23 and 25:31, 41-46, Jesus Christ announced prophetically (indirectly) the presence of the false Christians Imperialism until the End, because when Jesus Christ, in the prophetical illustration, talks to the “goats”, we understand, in the context, that they “know” him, they know Jesus Christ, as the same in Matthew 7:21-23. And we can also say that the apostle Paul gave the same information regarding the destruction of this manifestation of the false Christianity as apostasy:

“Let no one lead you astray in any way, because it will not come unless the apostasy comes first and the man of lawlessness gets revealed, the son of destruction. 4 He stands in opposition and exalts himself above every so-called god or object of worship, so that he sits down in the temple of God, publicly showing himself to be a god. 5 Do you not remember that when I was still with you, I used to tell you these things? 6 And now you know what is acting as a restraint, so that he will be revealed in his own due time. 7 True, the mystery of this lawlessness is already at work, but only until the one who is right now acting as a restraint is out of the way. 8  Then, indeed, the lawless one will be revealed, whom the Lord Jesus will do away with by the spirit of his mouth and bring to nothing by the manifestation of his presence” (2 Thessalonians 2:3-8).

In the first part of this biblical statement the Apostle Paul, under inspiration, wrote that the “apostasy”, and “the man of lawlessness”, the false Christians, the leaders of this “apostasy”, will be “revealed” through the powerful Western and Eastern “Christians” Nations (under Roman influence). After, he described the spiritual imperialism of these "christian" nations: “He stands in opposition and exalts himself above every so-called god or object of worship” and “publicly showing himself to be a god”. And the very important information given by the Apostle Paul, under inspiration: “Then, indeed, the lawless one will be revealed, whom the Lord Jesus will do away with by the spirit of his mouth and bring to nothing by the manifestation of his presence”…

The false christian nations will be directly destroyed by Jesus Christ Himself by “the spirit of his mouth” in the Great Tribulation, after the complete destruction of Babylon the Great, and after its Judgment of Tishri 10th (Revelation 14:18-20; 19:11-21).

Babylon against Jerusalem

There is a harmony in this biblical observation: In Daniel 11:41-43, we note that the prophetical description of the human king invasion of the Land of the Decoration is made in a “religious” description to make us understand the mystic behavior of this human king. This human king would have a kind of “religious” faith based on the Bible narrative to act in the same way, as if in his mind, he would imagine that God is using him to fulfill the promised restoration of the Promised Land, in that case the creation of the State of Israel in 1948…

In Revelation 13, one of the “wild beast” is described with a “religious” behavior, particularly in the verse 13:11, it is described as false “lamb” in opposition of the true “lamb” (5:6). In the verses 13:12,13, this “beast” is preaching and making miracles. In Revelation 16:13, 19:20, 20:10, this same beast is described as “false prophet”. That means the “false prophet” with its religious faith, and mystic behavior, can be part of the political leaders, with military force as Christendom Imperialism, if we link this description with the prophetic description of Daniel 11:41…

We must see the destruction of Babylon the Great, regarding what Jesus Christ, and the Apostle Paul said about the judgment of the Christendom, just before the Great Destruction, in Tishri 10th (Matthew 7:21-23; 25:41-46), and its destruction directly by Jesus Christ Himself, in the Great Tribulation itself (In Tishri 11th – 14th) (2 Thessalonians 2:3-8).

So, to understand very concretely how occur the Downfall and the period of the Destruction of Babylon the Great, we must study and understand the symbolism of Revelation and the symbolism of the Prophecy of Daniel linked with the current worldwide events. In that case we’ll see the synergies fulfillment of these two prophecies of Revelation and Daniel and the harmony with what we are observing now, in the world, particularly in the Middle East (Since 1991).

The symbolism of Revelation is a global prophetic description in that case (the destruction of Babylon the Great with its worldwide impact), the result of the enmity between the two sovereignties represented by two symbolic towns: Jerusalem (as New Jerusalem, the virgin wife of King Jesus Christ), as representative of the Legal Universal Sovereignty of Jehovah (Revelation 21:2). And the other town, Babylon the Great, the prostitute wife of Satan as representation of the illegal sovereignty of the devil on Earth (Revelation 17)…

The prophetic symbolism of the prophecy of Daniel, is an epicenter description of the fulfillment of the prophecy as a literal, historical and geographical description of the world situation (Daniel 11). This geographical and historical epicenter is situated in the Middle East (North (Syria), Land of Decoration (Israel (Epicenter of the worldwide earthquake), Egypt (South). This epicenter description of this prophecy makes us understand how the military and political human decisions have worldwide impact, as “worldwide earthquake”, particularly after the creation of the State of Israel in 1948 until our days, that will lead to the Great Tribulation (Daniel 11:41-12:1)… 

In one hand, before 1991, the "Dream of Saddam Hussein" was to create a new Caliphate of Bagdad that he tried to symbolise by the reconstruction of Babylon (Iraq) and would federate all the Muslim Nations of the Middle East. DAESH, tried and continue, currently, to do so:

“In the Iraqi propaganda, the references to the Babylonian empire, which stretched almost all the way to the Middle East, merge with those, much more numerous, relating to an another empire, that of the Abbasids prevailing in the early days of Islam, on an Arab world expanding. Recreate the power of the Caliphate of Baghdad is part of the dream of Saddam Hussein” (Translated in English from french language) “Le Monde International 17/04/2003” : http://www.lemonde.fr/international/article/2003/04/17/la-fin-du-reve-de-saddam-hussein_317208_3210.html#rzsmzHYM3jKMp5l6.99

On the other hand, the "Christian" imperialism, represented by the United States of America believes in the "Restoration" of Israel and particularly Jerusalem. And we can read how the Bible symbolically described the powerful human prophet in Revelation 13:14-18 and Daniel 11:41-43, he has been imagining to “fulfill” God's purpose in the Restoration of Israel (and Jerusalem), particularly since 1948.

Another information source is given by the French Historian, Professor Henry Laurens in the “Collège de France”, specialist of the Middle East Situation in Contemporary History. In his entitled series of seven conferences: " the question of Palestine: the failure of the peace process ", given on November 29th, 2013, he described the attitude of the President of Israel Benjamin Netanyahu regarding the American political leaders of the Republican, in connection with their Fundamentalist Protestant faith in the restoration of Israel:

"When Netanyahu arrives in Washington on January 20th, 1998, his first contacts are with his Republican friends, President of the Chamber of representatives, and Jerry Falwell, a fundamentalist preacher at the head of a media empire (Television and Magazines). Likud (right Israeli political party (Zionist and safe)), plays at bottom map of protestant fundamentalism, which sees in the support of the Jewish State, a Christian obligation in a millenarian tone. I remember the so-called "Christian Zionism”, which is a long tradition within the history of Protestantism known as the fulfillment of the prophecies, since this millenarian tradition appeared in the England of Cromwell in the middle of the 17th century and the great French protestant Jurieu wrote at the end of the 17th century a book that rightly focuses on the fulfillment of the prophecies.  And in the fulfillment of the prophecies, the Jews must go in the Holy Land as a step towards the advent of the Millennium, which is a desirable thing. This religious and political alliance cements in the refusal of any abandonment of the land of Israel and presents Islam as a common enemy of the Jews and the Christians” End of Quotation (Translated in English from French Language). * The French text at the end of this article.

Now you can compare in the Bible, the prophecy of Daniel 11:41-43, the conquest of the Promised Land, "the Land of Decoration", by the king of South after the Second World War, in 1948, with what Professor Henry Laurens said: "Likud (right Israeli political party (Zionist and safe)), plays at bottom map of (American) protestant fundamentalism, which sees in the support of the Jewish State, a Christian obligation in a millenarian tone"...:

"He will also enter into the land of the Decoration, and many lands will be made to stumble. But these are the ones that will escape out of his hand: Eʹdom and Moʹab and the main part of the Amʹmon·ites. 42 And he will keep thrusting out his hand against the lands; and as regards the land of Egypt, she will not escape. 43 And he will rule over the hidden treasures of gold and silver and over all the desirable things of Egypt. And the Libʹy·ans and the E·thi·oʹpi·ans will be at his steps" (Daniel 11:41-43 (Explanation) (Exodus 1947) (Operation Moses 1984)).

* "Quand Netanyahu arrive à Washington le 20 janvier 1998, ses premiers contacts sont avec ses amis républicains, la présidente de la chambre des représentants (nom ?), et Jeremy Falwell, un prêcheur fondamentaliste à la tête d’un véritable empire dans les médias. Le Likoud (partie politique Israélien de droite (Sioniste et sécuritaire)), joue à fond la carte du fondamentalisme protestant, qui voit dans le soutien à l’Etat Juif, une obligation chrétienne dans une tonalité millénariste. Je rappelle ce qu’on appelle « Christian zionism », qui est une longue tradition à l’intérieur de l’histoire du protestantisme qu’on appelle l’accomplissement des prophéties,  puisque cette tradition millénariste est apparue dans l’Angleterre de Cromwell au milieu du 17ème siècle et que le grand protestant français Jurieu a écrit à la fin du 17ème siècle un livre qui porte justement sur l’accomplissement des prophéties. Et dans cet accomplissement des prophéties, les juifs doivent aller en Terre Sainte comme étape vers l’avènement du millénium, ce qui est une chose souhaitable. Cette alliance Politico-religieuse se cimente dans le refus de tout abandon de la terre d’Israël et fait de l’Islam un ennemi commun des Juifs et des Chrétiens. »  Henry Laurens – Agrégé History Teacher, professor in the Collège de France since 2004.

LET THE READER USE DISCERNMENT: THE UNITED NATIONS SECURITY COUNSIL RESOLUTION 666

 WE ARE IN THE DAYS OF THE DESTRUCTION OF BABYLON THE GREAT

THE UN RESOLUTION NUMBER 666

“Therefore, when you catch sight of the disgusting thing that causes desolation, as spoken about by Daniel the prophet, standing in a holy place (let the reader use discernment), 16 then let those in Ju·deʹa begin fleeing to the mountains”

(Matthew 24:15, 16)

The fulfillment of the Downfall and the Destruction of Babylon the Great (Revelation 17:16,18), must be put in perspective with the prophecy of Daniel chapter 11:41-43, the king of south restoring Israel (in 1948). It must be also put in perspective with the prophetical Jesus Christ's statements according the worldwide situation of "Christians" that would imagine to do the Will of God (in the Restoration of the State of Israel in 1948 (for example)), but they didn't (Matthew 7:21-23). And the prophecy of the Downfall of Babylon, is directly connected with the Worldwide Religious War, begun in 1991.

At the time, this prophetical information of the imminence of the destruction of Jerusalem by the Roman armies was the first siege of the city by the Roman General Cestius Gallus, in 66 C.E. After the historical unexplained withdrawal of the Roman armies, the Christians, took into account the prophetical information given by Christ, to quickly flee from the city of Jerusalem, even the Roman troops would return four years later (Matthew 24:17,18). Led this time by Titus in 70 C.E., the Roman Armies returned and they completely destructed the city of Jerusalem and its temple.

Now if you compare, the inspired expression "let the reader use discernment" (Matthew 24:15; Mark 13:14), with the expression of Revelation 13:18, "Let the one who has insight calculate the number of the wild beast", there is a surprising similarity. That seems to indicate that at the moment we’ll understand what is the “result” of the “number of the wild beast”, we’ll be in the same situation of the first Christians of Jerusalem, when they “discern” the first siege of Jerusalem in 66 C.E. At this stage of this special understanding, we’ll know that we are very near from the Great Tribulation (Matthew 24:21,22).

There are several wild beasts in Revelation 13: the dragon who is Satan the devil. This dragon gives his authority to a first wild beast with 7 heads and 10 horns, which represents the human sovereignty on Earth. There is another wild beast, with a head like a lamb with two horns who exercises all the authority of the first beast. So this second wild beast is a worldwide power that can only be the United States of America. They have been the inspirers of the Creation of the image of the beast, the third beast, with the aim of a worldwide patriotic worship, which is none other than the United Nations. And it is in this context that appears the 666 number-name: “This is where it calls for wisdom: Let the one who has insight calculate the number of the wild beast, for it is a man’s number, and its number is 666” (Revelation 13:18).

Before knowing the important idea of the United Nations Security Council Resolution 666, it is interesting to know that this Resolution 666 has been elaborated within a series of 12 United Nations Security Council Resolutions that would result in the “fall of Babylon the Great” and the beginning of the destruction of it:  “Babylon” that is Iraq (United Nations Security Council Resolutions 660, 661, 662, 664, 665, 666, 667, 669, 670, 674, 677, 678). The general idea of the United Nations Security Council Resolution 666, is exactly the prophetic expression of Revelation 13:18 that shows the image of the wild beast would have the “authority” by mean the prophet to decide who could “buy and sell”...

The United Nations Security Council Resolution 666 (extract): “United Nations Security Council Resolution 666, adopted on September 13, 1990, after recalling resolutions 661 (1990) and 664 (1990) which discussed the humanitarian situation in Iraq and Kuwait and the detention of nationals from foreign countries, the Council decided to ask the Security Council Committee to determine if humanitarian needs have arisen and to keep the situation under review. At the same time, it expected Iraq to comply with its obligations under international law, including the Fourth Geneva Convention, relating to the safety and detainment of third-state nationals in Iraq and occupied Kuwait” (Wikipedia United Nations Security Council Resolution 666).

The United Nations Security Council Resolution 661, remembered and in fact, included in the United Nations Security Council Resolution 666 (extract): “The Council therefore decided that states should prevent:

    (a) the import of all products and commodities originating in Iraq or Kuwait;

   (b) any activities by their nationals or in their territories that would promote the export of products originating in Iraq or Kuwait, as well as the transfer of funds to either country for the purposes of such activities;

    (c) the sale of weapons or other military equipment to Iraq and Kuwait, excluding humanitarian aid;

    (d) the availability of funds or other financial or economic resources to either country, or to any commercial, industrial or public utility operating within them, except for medical or humanitarian purposes” (Wikipedia United Nations Security Council Resolution 661).

Now, we can remember what it is written in Revelation 13:16-18: “And it puts under compulsion all persons, the small and the great, and the rich and the poor, and the free and the slaves, that they should give these a mark in their right hand or upon their forehead, 17 and that nobody might be able to buy or sell except a person having the mark, the name of the wild beast or the number of its name. 18 Here is where wisdom comes in: Let the one that has intelligence calculate the number of the wild beast, for it is a man’s number; and its number is six hundred and sixty-six”.

The interesting point is this: while Satan the devil created the "image of the beast" with the purpose to fight against the integrity of the Holy Ones (Revelation 20:4), Jehovah God used this same "image of the beast", through his number-name 666, to fight against Babylon the Great:

"For God put [it] into their hearts to carry out his thought, even to carry out [their] one thought by giving their kingdom to the wild beast, until the words of God will have been accomplished" (Revelation 17:17).

The United Nations Security Council Resolution 678: The Destruction of Babylon (Iraq) as Fall of Babylon the Great, and the beginning of the period of Destruction of Babylon the Great (Revelation 17:16).

Can we consider that the Destruction of Iraq (Babylon), as the geographical epicenter with worldwide impact, since 1991 until our days, the fulfillment of the prophecy of the “Downfall of Babylon the Great” and the period of “The Destruction of Babylon the Great”? YES, WE CAN.

Regarding the prophecy of Revelation 17:17, God gave cryptically the important information WHEN the Bible Student “on the watch” could discern the beginning of this fulfillment: 666 (Revelation 13:18). God gave also, more information linked yo this number, that is the right to decree who “can buy or sell”, exactly what it is written in the UN Resolution 666 (included the Resolution 601), regarding the embargo (Resolution 601) and to allow to “buy or sell” (Resolution 666).

This fact to “calculate the number of the wild beast, for it is a man’s number, and its number is 666”, is the manner to “discern” with “insight”, when “God put it into their hearts to carry out his thought”. In Our Modern Days, it represents our prophetic sign to discern that we are very near of the Great Tribulation (Compare with Matthew 24:15 “let the reader use discernment” and Revelation 13:18 “Let the one who has insight”).

This Downfall of Babylon (Iraq) begun in January 17th, 1991, and was celebrated by the “prophet” as a victory, in September 11th 1991, as the beginning period of the Destruction of Babylon the Great by coalition of Nations, until our days, and until the beginning of the Great Tribulation (Revelation 19:1-11).
