Does anyone know of new information on this mystery from the book of Revelation? Some book authors write that it is a political entity, or the world’s commerce. And some religious groups; (like WTB&TS) believe that Babylon the Great represents all false churches, but their own! We think it’s religious groups, and organized churches that go beyond God‘s laws. Please share your thoughts as well; is Babylon the Great only Christendom, or does she represent all major religions?
The Bible calls Babylon the Great, “mother of the harlots.” -Rev. 17
It shows her riding the ten kingdoms, AKA “the Wild Beast” -Rev. 13
She’s whore to kings, and the military is fearful she fell. -Rev. 18
Commerce becomes depressed; their partner is gone. -Rev. 18
If we don’t want to share in her fate, how serious should we become at leaving her? God says: “Get out!” In the Bible times, Babylon was a kingdom of a thousand temples. Before that a place called Bebel that built a tower to the heavens, later spread false religion around the globe. Also; YHWH God charged ancient Israel with destroying the false worship of Baal. In our common era, Jesus accused the religious leaders of false worship and instructed his disciples to not imitate these hypocrites.
True worship is therefore; not dictated by religious leaders that speak for their organization. Jesus said to: “Worship God with spirit and truth”, this does not include being subservient to money-making theological schools or corporations. Nor, does this mean that we blindly follow a beloved pastor, as “all have sinned and fallen short of the glory of God.” As individuals, families and study groups; it’s imperative that we take responsibility for our personal relationship with our Heavenly Father! The Babylon of all false religion will continue to lead the masses to the same place, destruction!
