THE DEMISE OF BABYLON
An ancient city was seen in a condition of total desolation.
Where buildings had been, there were piles of bricks and broken down walls.
The people of the city stood around in a dazed state
not understanding what had happened
or how such a catastrophe could strike their well established and secure city.
But all hope was not lost.
Upon a hill-top another City was seen,
and this city was flooded with light.
The source of the light was a brilliant narrow streak of light,
like a laser beam,
coming down out of the sky.
Entering the City at a central point,
the light was dispersed throughout,
making everything within the City glow.
As the inhabitants of the destroyed city cast their gaze upon the City of Light,
they realised that their only hope lay before them,
if only they could reach the light.
The Lord said concerning this scene,
The destroyed city is Babylon,
which represents all in this world which is of human engineering.
Mankind has devised many concepts of living,
differing concepts and attitudes to life being accepted
in different parts of the globe.
Yet all these lack any true basis from above.
All is of human devising,
and as such cannot have a stable foundation,
even though apparent stability may appear for a time.
But the time has now come for these concepts to be shattered.
Mankind must now realise that man cannot live by bread alone,
nor by economics, philosophy or religion,
but only by my word.
All these empty things which stem from a Babylonish root
will be seen for what they really are,
and vanity will be seen as vanity.
When people see that they have built their lives
on that which cannot endure or even sustain them any more,
they will feel a total desolation of spirit,
where before their spirits were dead.
They will wander about in a spiritual daze.
Their leaders will have nothing to offer,
neither the princes,
nor the generals,
nor the debaters and manipulators,
nor the philosophers,
nor the princes of religion.
All will be bankrupt.
In this desolation, my light shall be seen in Zion,
and hope shall return to the hearts of mankind.
My word shall go forth in mighty power and it shall be effectual.
Those who welcome the light will at last find comfort and solace.
They shall learn of my ways.
And even those who thought they knew my ways ,
shall, in their shame and spiritual nakedness,
acknowledge that they were in darkness.
My remnant shall minister my word.
My remnant will be very small in number,
and only through their lips shall my word be spoken.
And pride shall not be heard of amongst them,
for they will minister in a state of tears and grief
that the world took so long to acknowledge the Light of the World.
