Future Quake Southern Hemisphere

Today, March 3, my friends at FQSH uploaded our recent discussion on the end-times system of Babylon the Great. It is show number 53 introduced here: http://www.fqsouthafrica.co.za/blog.html, which can be directly downloaded here: http://www.fqsouthafrica.co.za/fqshShow53.mp3

You can also find links to the show notes in pdf or powerpoint on the front page at www.redmoonrising.com

A popular view on Mystery Babylon that is promoted by many prophecy teachers is that Babylon is in fact a three-part system: Political Babylon, Ecclesiastical Babylon, and Commercial Babylon. In other words, it has a religious aspect (Rome/Jerusalem), a political aspect (re-built Babylon in Iraq), and a commercial aspect (New York City?).

My view is that the commercial aspect of Babylon engulfs all of the other aspects. Commerce IS Babylon’s religion, and her quest for worldly comfort, luxury and prestige is what drives her political agenda as well. When she falls she will be mourned by the kings (politicians) that were in bed with her enjoying her wealth, by the merchants (global corporations) that profited from her pathological consumerism, and by the shipping industry that today delivers 90% of the world’s commodities to every corner of the globe. Commerce is Babylon’s religion, and Global Capitalism is the primary enemy of the Kingdom of Heaven on the earth in these end times today.

Does that sound hard to believe? I’m sure it does to many, and all I can do is remind people that the greatest enemies of our Faith are not obvious (like Islam or atheistic Communism), but are subtle, seductive, and deceptive.

“For when they speak great swelling words of
vanity, they allure through the lusts of the flesh…
While they promise them liberty, they
themselves are the servants of corruption:
for of whom a man is overcome, of the same is he
brought in bondage.” (2 Peter 2:18-19)

“That interdependence of all men, which is now in everybody’s mouth and which tends to make all mankind One World, not only is the effect of the market order but could not have been brought about by any other means.”  – Friedrich Hayek in Law, Legislation and Liberty (1973)

And he causeth all, both small and great, rich and poor, free and
bond, to receive a mark in their right hand, or in their foreheads:
And that no man might buy or sell, save he that had the mark, or
the name of the beast, or the number of his name… six hundred
and sixty-six. (Rev 13:16-17)

  1. I hate America — it’s rich, sick, sexually immoral, shameless and proud — and I have no love for American Capitalism. I’ve no problem at all believing that America is the Great Whore. (When one looks at the selfish, slutting ‘n shopping Sex And The City shamelessness of American women, the Great Whore seems an apt epithet for the U.S.!) Modern America is filled with consumer goods from poor countries, for which America paid with worthless paper money. And sex is used to market everything from chocolate bars to clothing to holidays to cars. Consumerist America is truly a whore, even if she is not the Great Whore.

    However, Leftism is a great evil, too. The fact that Leftists hate Capitalism does not mean that Leftists are good. On the contrary, they are evil. What worries me, Peter, is that you quote with approval John Maynard Keynes and even Karl Marx, both of whom were Satan’s servants. So whilst America has made false gods of markets & Liberty (and Americans cannot handle liberty), Leftism is just another false god. Leftism is also a fundamentally materialistic ideology and is based on coercion and taking rather than on volition and giving. I don’t think you underline this enough in your writing.

    Politics is futile, regardless of the system: democracy offers no more hope in the long term than hereditary monarchy, owing to human sinfulness and rebellion. Even the perfect system which God Himself established in Israel failed — not because it was wrong (indeed, it was God-given and hence perfect), but rather because human beings were responsible for implementing it. Humans cannot govern themselves. This is why we are not to waste time on politics but to concentrate on bearing witness of sin and calling the lost to repentance. Jesus will sort out the business of government when He comes back — and it will involve much slaughter, so wicked will the world be at that time. …And I’m beginning to think we’re almost there.

  2. Hello Peter, why don’t you have a debate with Theodore Beale at his Vox Popoli website. Vox is a Christian [ with what some would call strange views] and Economics is one of his MadSkilzz. Please it would be very interesting for you and he to compare viewpoints.
    I must admit I believe you are oversimplifying the meaning and effects of Capitalism and perhaps finding the lowest common denominator when you discuss it.
    Anyway I know too little about Economics to discuss it. Please, have a discussion at Vox Popoli.

  3. Peter, I’ve learned to respect you over the years by listening and reading your work in obscurity. It’s solid. I respect that. I listened here… A very thought provoking podcast!

    I’ve just recently read others bloggers who perhaps don’t understand that you present yourself as an Apologist while working to enlighten others of the hope and understanding you hold dear. That is a good work my friend…

    I; as an American born in the late 50’s; have seen the relinquishment of morality bow before the establishment of the worlds drift. Each of us search out our securities or treasures.

    As many, perhaps. I’ve wondered about the treasures laid before us… while treasure can be be defined by each alone.. treasure is also defined as value amongst ones own excepted allegiances or fellows.

    While both are unseen… one is based upon a steadfast point of reference. The other perhaps is but like a near-sighted navigator steering the lifeboat toward a wistful lightened aberration; never realizing it’s source is the captains lamp at the bow of the boat…

    Thanks Peter…Thanks for thinking and hearing…

  4. Jct: Christ’s greatest commandment: Thomas 95: Jesus said: “If you have money, do not lend it out at interest.”
    Paul Corr II 8:14 is the second: “Your abundance should now be a supply for their want so that their abundance may later be a supply for your want, and in that way, he who gathers much doesn’t have too much and he who gathers little doesn’t have too little.”
    His Third is: Lend unto others as you have them lend unto you!” (interest-free)
    His prayer: Give us today tomorrow’s bread, and forgive us our debts, as we forgive our debtors! Pretty clear.
