BABYLON IS FALLING – A New Season is Upon Us
By Ron McGatlin
The glorious kingdom of God is coming forth as the presence of God is transforming hearts and minds by His passionate presence. Pure-hearted men and women are becoming the army of God, bathed in holy passion and love, desiring His love and presence above even life itself. A new generation of sincere believers in which anything is possible is arising.
The old must make way for the new.
Isaiah 21:1-9… The burden against the Wilderness of the Sea. As whirlwinds in the South pass through, So it comes from the desert, from a terrible land. A distressing vision is declared to me; The treacherous dealer deals treacherously, And the plunderer plunders. Go up, O Elam! Besiege, O Medea! All its sighing I have made to cease.
Therefore my loins are filled with pain; Pangs have taken hold of me, like the pangs of a woman in labor. I was distressed when I heard it; I was dismayed when I saw it. My heart wavered, fearfulness frightened me; The night for which I longed He turned into fear for me.
Prepare the table, Set a watchman in the tower, Eat and drink. Arise, you princes, Anoint the shield! For thus has the Lord said to me: “Go, set a watchman, Let him declare what he sees.
“And he saw a chariot with a pair of horsemen, A chariot of donkeys, and a chariot of camels, And he listened earnestly with great care. Then he cried, “A lion, my Lord! I stand continually on the watchtower in the daytime; I have sat at my post every night. And look, here comes a chariot of men with a pair of horsemen!” Then he answered and said, “Babylon is fallen, is fallen! And all the carved images of her gods He has broken to the ground.”
There is urgency in the spiritual realm, a certain anticipation of cataclysmic events taking place. Something has been released in the spiritual realm coming from the throne. Multitudes of powerful angels are here for a significant purpose. It is time for the watchmen to watch. It is time for the young strong men to arise and be well-fed and strengthened spiritually. It is time to anoint our shield of faith with the oil of the Holy Spirit – to make ready our equipment for what is coming. It is time for the watchmen to declare what he sees and the army to make ready.
As the heavenly chariots come forth, the Lion appears and finally the chariot arrives to announce the anticipated day that the great loftiness of man’s pride and all the gods man has made are broken to the ground. Babylon, the great system of glorious luxury – of all that man can provide by his intellect and strength – the magnificent work of artistry, cunning, and sorcery is fallen. The great harlot system that worshiped gods other than the one true God is judged to be destroyed.
Babylon is more than false or perverted religious systems. The spiritual is more powerful than the secular; it is a guiding source for culture and society. Business and all social or cultural matters including governmental affairs are all affected by what the spiritual authority that is in charge allows to come in. The religious institutions that have been revered by the people have been the portals of the spiritual realm. They were the gates and what they allowed to come in came in, and what they locked out stayed out. Babylon has been allowed to enter in through the religious institutions. Thus every spectrum of life has been permeated with the Babylonian ways that were allowed to enter by the religious systems.
The fall of Babylon affects the entire structure of life both secular and religious. The prophet speaks of having birth pangs and a dreadful fearful wavering of heart as he is distressed and dismayed by the vision regarding the fall of Babylon.
We must – through many tribulations – enter the kingdom (Acts 14:22).
It is a good thing that everything that exalts itself against God is being destroyed making room for the kingdom of God on the earth. But for many it is a terrible loss of comfort and painful loss of life as all that Babylon has provided is lost. The false gods and religious mixtures that people have trusted in will fall and be shattered to pieces before their eyes seemingly leaving nothing to sustain their lives. Anything of Babylon remaining in the hearts of believers will be painfully purged. The time that the prophets have longed for becomes a fearful night, “The night for which I longed He turned into fear for me (Isaiah 21:4).”
Isa 2:12; 17-18… For the day of the LORD of hosts Shall come upon everything proud and lofty, Upon everything lifted up; And it shall be brought low;
The loftiness of man shall be bowed down, And the haughtiness of men shall be brought low; The LORD alone will be exalted in that day, But the idols He shall utterly abolish.
The kingdoms built by man that were derived from the tree of knowledge and empowered by demons, are crumbling under the wrath of God. The rule of political and religious tyranny will not always continue. The mixture of good and evil within religious and political leaders will be done away.
The kingdom of God is established on earth by Christ from the throne and in His Body on earth.
The reality of the New Jerusalem lifestyle is coming down from heaven now.
Eventually the kingdom of God shall reign instead of the kingdoms of men. The pure-hearted prepared sons of God filled with love, power, and wisdom are beginning to come forth ready to rule and reign with Christ on the earth. Multitudes of holy angels are present to work with the people of God to cleanse and renew – to bring forth the kingdom from heaven on earth.
As it was in the first century, Christ is now working with His people as they go about doing mighty works of God. After the ascension of Christ, the disciples went about doing the works of God the Lord working with them. He is present within us to do the same works today.
Mark 16:20… And they went out and preached everywhere, the Lord working with them and confirming the word through the accompanying signs. Amen.
Supernatural miracles are drawing many to God. There are accounts of people being raised from the dead. Not just a few but many healings and creative miracles: blind eyes opened, deaf hearing, food being miraculously multiplied, miraculous provision and more. These are not just being done by big name ministers. These are real happenings of real works with real people.
We have entered into a new season of mighty angelic assisted works of God changing the hearts of many people drawing them from darkness to light. In great crusades hundreds of thousands and literally millions are coming together and in one case over a million converts in one day.
In house churches many are being reached one family at a time. God is saving people. Miracles are a major factor in demonstrating the reality and the love of God in all the different venues of harvest. The kingdom of God is coming forth and the glory of God is being seen by those with eyes to see and ears to hear across the earth.
These things are really happening.
If we live in the Spirit, let us also walk in the Spirit – Rom 5:25.
Live in the Spirit, Walk in the Spirit,
