Many people wonder where Babylon of Revelation 18 is. Some say Rome, New York City, the Vatican or Jerusalem. Some say a future Babylon will be built. One of those theories could be right or they can all be wrong because it is a mystery. Babylon in Revelation 18 is an actual city who is accused of killing God's prophets. There was one city Jesus said this of in the Bible.
In this lesson we discuss what Pastor Rahsaan thinks this city of Babylon is and provides Scripture to show why he thinks that. This message is not an anti-Semitic message. God calls us to love ALL people. The Bible tells us that we are to be peacemakers. We know who our Brethren are because the Scriptures tell us it is those who do the will of our Father. Now we must ask ourselves who is our neighbor. Israel is much more than a land but they are a people. The Bible shows us in the New Testament that God is dwelling inside of His people not in a land. The New Testament also shows us who are the Jews now.
Let us not be deceived by this Zionist movement just because it is Israel. We can still support and pray for the Jews without condoning some of the things that are going on in Israel. The Christian Zionist movement speaks out against the sin in America while overlooking the sin in Israel. The Christian Zionist movement will support Israel's abuse of Palestinian Christians who are our Brothers and Sisters in Christ just because they are Israel. What is right is right and what is wrong is wrong no matter who it is. Christ came to set the captives free and we are to come out from among them. Them being the world system and those who are children of the devil because they do the works of the devil.
Matthew 5:9 "Blessed are the peacemakers, For they shall be called sons of God."
If as Christians you are speaking hate or destruction against anyone are you truly a peacemaker.
