Part I; The prophetic significance of Babylon, New York:


Several years ago, while engaged in intensive research to uncover the identity of end-
times Babylon, also known as Babylon the Great, I became aware of a certain town near
New York City named ―Babylon‖. Later, I discovered that there is also a village of
Babylon, which is one of the three villages of the town Babylon (the others being
Amityville and Lindenhurst). Why is this important? The country United States of
America is referred to as ―Babylon‖ and ―the daughter of Babylon‖ throughout much of
the Old Testament, and as ―Babylon‖ and ―Babylon the Great‖ in Revelation. In
addition, the U.S.A. has as her most important city New York City, also designated as
―Babylon‖ in Revelation. [There is a Biblical and historic precedent for such
nomenclature- the ancient city of Babylon was the main and capital city within the
empire of Babylon] Therefore, I found it fascinating that a town of ―Babylon‖ actually
exists mere miles from Manhattan, the Statue of Liberty, and New York Harbor. To help
illustrate what I’m getting at, specifically, I’ll start with a few quotes; the first from
author R.A. Coombes (bold emphasis within quotes by C.M.N. throughout this article)-


There is a populated city named Babylon on a deepwater port entryway to New York
City. Revelation 17:18; & 18:11-19…… Did you know that when ships coming into the
harbor facilities of New York City make their final approach to the Harbor channel
shipping lanes……they have to come in from the south…… heading due North straight
for a spot on Long Island called …… BABYLON!!! That is right. The city of Babylon,
New York features a tall water tower that ship captains use to navigate
directly into the harbor channel. They come within view of Babylon before
turning west to head into the ports of New York City. It is from this vantage point that
I believe Revelation 18:17-19 takes place. From this vantage point……on the deck of a
ship……one could quite easily read the letters of the name Babylon on the city water
tower!!! Talk about literal?? Now that is indeed literal. Its chief city…… a seaport
named NYC/Babylon.


Apparently, until recently, the Babylon water tower was the first landmark viewable
from the freighters making their way from Europe to the world’s busiest port, New
York! In order to understand why this is so profound, let us read Revelation 18:10, 15-
19-


 Standing afar off for the fear of her torment, saying, Alas, alas that great city
10


Babylon, that mighty city! for in one hour is thy judgment come.


 The merchants of these things, which were made rich by her, shall stand afar off for
15


the fear of her torment, weeping and wailing,


  And saying, Alas, alas that great city, that was clothed in fine linen, and purple, and
 16


scarlet, and decked with gold, and precious stones, and pearls!
 For in one hour so great riches is come to nought. And every shipmaster, and all
17


the company in ships, and sailors, and as many as trade by sea, stood afar
off,


 And cried when they saw the smoke of her burning, saying, What city is like unto this
18


great city!

19And they cast dust on their heads, and cried, weeping and wailing, saying, Alas, alas
that great city, wherein were made rich all that had ships in the sea by reason
of her costliness! for in one hour is she made desolate.


In the above verses we read, in graphic detail, of the reaction of sailors who are standing
on the decks of the various ships which happen to be approaching New York Harbor on
the very day of America’s demise. Certainly, were the great city in flames, the sailors
and merchants on the waters outside of Babylon would see it vividly. This is precisely
what John witnessed while caught up in the Spirit from the Isle of Patmos!


Here is another description of the Babylon water tower; this from author Peter
Goodgame of www.redmoonrising.com


New York City is undoubtedly the most important port city in the world. What may not
be known is that when a ship approaches the New York City harbor from the south, in
order to properly conform with the shipping lanes it must aim due north straight for a
municipality on Long Island named ―Babylon.‖ A tall water tower on the shoreline is
used as a reference point for navigation and when a ship reaches closest to shore
before turning west to enter the harbor, the name ―Babylon,‖ written on the tower in
big bold letters can be easily read.


Now, obviously I was fascinated by this information, and set about trying to find a photo
of this water tower, but to no avail. I did discover, however, that sometime in the 1980’s
the Babylon-area water towers were replaced or refurbished, and that instead of
merely the Babylon water tower, ships began to also use the Fire Island lighthouse for
navigation as well. This does not detract whatsoever from the amazing prophetic clues
about the ships and Babylon, as you will see by reading on! For one thing, a portion of
Fire Island itself is within the limits of the town of Babylon. The stories and prophetic
connections of both the town of Babylon, and of Fire Island itself, have got to be heard
to be believed! Also, although the Babylon water tower may no longer be marked
―Welcome to Babylon‖, it is still one of only two navigational landmarks for the
incoming ship traffic.


For vehicular traffic, here are the directions to Babylon for those coming from New
Jersey, courtesy of-


http://www.eevb.net/Cedar/htm


Verrazano Bridge to Belt Parkway east (Follow to Long Island signs) to Southern State
Pkwy. East to Meadowbrook Pkwy south towards Jones Beach. Meadowbrook Pkwy
changes into the Ocean Parkway and heads east. Go past large water tower in
middle of parkway 8 miles to Cedar Beach on your right.


Here is a picture of the water tower as it appears today-




                             . . . Near Ocean Parkway, Babylon; this is an exceptionally
tall tower, clearly a phallic obelisk or similar shape . . .


Part II; The origin of the name “Babylon” for this New York town:


There are two different stories as to how the town of ―Babylon‖ (and, by extension,
Babylon Village) got its name. Both theories are quite remarkable and potentially
prophetic in their connotation. Anyway, here are the two theories. First, from
Wikipedia-


http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Babylon_%28town%29,_New_York


When a cherent community grew up in the area by 1803, prominent local citizens
sought to adopt a new name. An influential local lady, Mrs. Conklin, was used to living
inland in what is now considered Dix Hills and was at unease with the home site that
her grandchildren would be raised in. The Bible-reading Mrs. Conklin
compared the new hamlet to the biblical city of Babylon and proposed that
name in apparent defiance of the area‘s rather bawdy reputation as a stop-over place
for travelers on Long Island‘s south shore. Her son Nat was appalled by the use
of an “unholy” name. The family legend states she replied: “But it will be a
new Babylon.” The name stuck, despite some effort to change it.


I find that quite profound, and certainly fascinating. Also, according to my research, the
town was first called ―New Babylon‖, but later shortened to ―Babylon‖. Here is an
alternate view as to the origins of the town name ―Babylon‖, equally interesting, from
author R.A. Coombes (in part)-


Babylon on Long Island derived its name because immigrant Jews founded it in 1872.
The group‟s rabbis chose the name almost prophetically, because they
believed it would be home to a new diaspora. Why would they think this?
Because rabbinical opinions had held that ancient Babylon‘s power would be moved.


Dr. Coombes goes on to discuss the connection to Zechariah 5 and Isaiah 18, wherein
the spirit of Babylon goes forth to reside in a new country to the far reaches of the west.
He also reveals the spirit of Babylon is currently embodied by the Statue of Liberty,
which represents the goddess Ishtar. This prominent symbol, a gargantuan bronze idol,
is one way in which we can so clearly recognize the end-times ―Babylon the Great, the
Mother of Harlots‖. A detailed summary of the Statue of Liberty and its connection to
Ishtar is beyond the scope of this study, but I highly recommend Dr. Coombes’ 2-
Volume set ―America, The Babylon . . .‖ (see Bibliography), and for a brief summary
please see my article on this blog-
http://nabiy4america.wordpress.com/2010/12/18/madonna-aka-
%E2%80%9Cesther%E2%80%9D-a-type-of-the-harlot-of-babylon-documented-
astounding-connections-to-mother-goddess-ishtar/


So, we have two distinct views of how Babylon, the town, got its name. One view which
is suggestive of a Christian origin, and the other of a Jewish influence. Either one lends
to a fascinating storyline. Perhaps the truth is both? For example, some type of
agreement between the Christian founders of the town and the Jewish elders in the
community? What cannot be denied is that Babylon, New York has a very high
concentration of Jews, even more so than the metropolitan area in general, and it is
common knowledge that there are more Jews in the New York City metropolitan area
than in any other city in the world, including cities in Israel.


Author Peter Goodgame also has these gems, which really cement this whole thesis!-


Clearly America is the home of Jewish exiles.


According to my research this community is the only inhabited and
functioning community in the world that is known as “Babylon.”


The latter is an absolutely amazing statement; just imagine the ramifications! In review,
then, it is obvious that there are a great number of Jewish exiles living in Babylon
(America that is, but represented by Babylon, New York as well). And, the Lord warns
both these Jewish exiles and the true believers within Babylon, for example in Zechariah
2:7-


Come, O Zion! Escape, you who live in the Daughter of Babylon!


and Psalm 137:8-


O daughter of Babylon, who art to be destroyed; happy shall he be, that rewardeth
thee as thou hast served us.


and, finally, Revelation 18:4-
And I heard another voice from heaven, saying, Come out of her, my people, that
ye be not partakers of her sins, and that ye receive not of her plagues.


Part III; Babylon, New York- a brief description of both the town and
village:


First, I will discuss the town of Babylon itself. Much of this information is derived from-


http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Babylon_%28town%29,_New_York


The Town, or Township, of Babylon is a jurisdiction in Suffolk County, New York (USA),
located on Long Island. There is also a Village of Babylon located within the town. It
borders Nassau County to the West, and the Atlantic Ocean to the South. Parts of
Jones Beach Island, Captree Island and Fire Island are in the southernmost part
of the town. The villages of Babylon town are Amityville (to the southwest), Babylon
(to the southeast), and Lindenhurst (to the south). It is bordered on the south by the
Atlantic Ocean. The population is approximately 215,000, and it encompasses 114.2
square miles including water.


Some valuable tidbits can be gleaned from the Babylon Industrial Development Agency
(Babylon IDA) at-


http://www.babylonida.org/


Such as-


Babylon is known as ―the heart of it all‖.


Babylon has become the economic heartbeat of Long Island.


At the Babylon IDA . . . our business is business.


In other words, the town of Babylon plays an essential role, and is located in a strategic
place. The focus on ―business‖ is also clearly reminiscent of what we know of the
country ―Babylon‖ from Revelation, as supported by many verses in Isaiah and
Jeremiah as well.
The village of Babylon, the southeast portion of Babylon town, is also discussed. Much
of this information is taken from-


http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Babylon_%28village%29%2C_New_York


Babylon is a village in Suffolk County, New York. The population was 12,615 at the
2000 census, and although it is officially referred to as ―The Incorporated Village of
Babylon‖, it is more commonly referred to simply as ―Babylon Village‖. Here is a map
showing the general location on Long Island; the tip of Fire Island is visible to the
southeast.




                                              . . . note that Babylon is bordered by ―North
Babylon‖ as well . . .


From author R.A. Coombes, we get more important information-

Babylon Township has a population of 203,000 people, with 12,000 living in the city of
Babylon itself and 42,000 living in West Babylon. Associated with the city is the
Babylon Beach area with a broad look at the Harbor entrance to New York.


As this is central to the thesis of this article, here is yet another quote-


Babylon soon came to be considered the primary gateway to Fire Island, which is
a thin barrier strand off of Long Island, and is therefore an essential marker for
incoming ship traffic.
Babylon Village has a long history of the luxury lifestyle, and its location allowed for very
pleasant ―summering on the ocean‖, all within easy range of Manhattan. This led many
affluent individuals and families to reside at Babylon’s seaside resorts, both on Long
Island and the smaller barrier strand beaches such as Fire Island.


Babylon village has 12 churches and a large, thriving synagogue
http://www.congregationbethsholom.com/


Families, individuals, and interfaith couples are all welcome at Congregation Beth
Sholom, located in the heart of the Village of Babylon.


Babylon today is part suburban bedroom community, part small-town, and has a
substantial shopping and business district. Today the village is best known for its
restaurants and shops, and hosts shopping events during the fall as well as a popular
crafts fair. It also has an historic downtown, as most of the core of Babylon dates to the
era from before the Civil War to World War I. Some consider Babylon to be a
picturesque fishing village. Here is a picture of Babylon harbor-




                                           Babylon Village is only 33 Nautical miles
from the Statue of Liberty, 39 Nautical miles from the middle of New York Harbor, and
6 Nautical miles from the Fire Island Lighthouse, a most important structure will be
discussed in a forthcoming section of this article.


In the October 28, 2010 edition of ―New York Online‖, a section of the New York Times,
there is an article by J. David Goodman entitled:

Babylon on Hudson?
http://cityroom.blogs.nytimes.com/2010/10/28/babylon-on-hudson/


This short article is an interesting read, and the author does seem to be serious with his
question which is, essentially, ―Is New York City Babylon?‖ The question is based on the
analysis presented within a You Tube video which he links to. The author goes on to list
5 reasons that New York City might be the end-times Babylon; these essentially being
corruption, sensual delights, similarities between leaders, abundance of towers, and
creepy men. He then concludes his analysis with an answer of ―maybe‖ to the question.


He next poses this question to his readers- ―So, jury of our peers, are we Babylon?‖ I
found this comment by ―George‖ to be quite enlightening-


Geez — and here I always thought that Babylon was a town out there on Long
Island…..


Precisely! Starting to make the connection!


Part IV; An historic, horrific event in Babylon town:


When I first started researching the town and village of Babylon, I saw this headline in
the initial website I linked to:


POLICE CLOSING PARKWAY MONDAY FOR BODIES INVESTIGATION


Although, sadly, this is not unique to Babylon, New York, it is certainly reflective of the
headlines throughout Babylon, America on any given day, is it not? The article goes on
to state-


This marks the first time search efforts have expanded north of the barrier beach area
and beyond Ocean Parkway since the discovery of 10 bodies in the Gilgo and Jones
Beach areas in the past four months.


In the past several weeks both Suffolk and Nassau police have conducted intense aerial
and water searches along Ocean Parkway, from Robert Moses Causeway to the Jones
Beach water tower, looking for evidence and human remains.
It‘s been 140 days since a Suffolk County police canine team discovered the first female
remains on December 11, 2010. Two days later three more sets of remains were
found. All four were identified as young white women who worked as escorts. One was
a North Babylon woman last seen in September 2010.


Between March 31 and April 4 Suffolk Police found four more sets of remains. On
April 11 Nassau Police discovered two more sets, bringing the body count to 10.


This was an extremely disturbing story to really take in and dwell on. It truly grieves me
so. Yet, is it surprising? Tragically, ―no‖. News such as this is so common these days,
and that speaks volumes about what kind of society end-times Babylon has become.


As discussed above, the town of Babylon is made up of three villages. One of these is
Amityville. That name was recognizable to me, even though I’ve never been a fan of
horror movies . . . as a sidenote, I have always shunned horror films, for to glorify such
violence and the demonic is absolutely and grotesquely wrong, and frankly I abhor the
American obsession with this most distasteful ―art‖ form. But, back to the discussion
now, the name of the film was ―The Amityville Horror‖, and it is based on events that
supposedly followed this horrific mass murder, which is summarized below (the film
plot itself is quite suspect, but the murders were real and shocking). Here is a short
treatise of the actual event-


http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Amityville_Horror_%282005_film%29


On November 13, 1974, police discovered six members of the DeFeo family — father,
mother and four of their five children — shot and killed execution style at 112 Ocean
Avenue in Amityville Village, Babylon, New York. The four children were aged 9, 12,
13, and 18. The perpetrator was the surviving child, and the oldest, 23 year old Ronald
Joseph ‗Butch‘ DeFeo, Jr.


Remember Ocean Parkway from the ―today’s headlines‖ in the above section, about the
10 bodies? This horrific murder occurred on Ocean Avenue, mere blocks away!
                                              The ―Amityville Horror House‖, in Babylon,
New York, is widely considered the most famous haunted house in history. Below is a
picture of this house taken the morning of the gruesome murders-




                               Not surprisingly, really, Ronald DeFeo claims that he was
―possessed‖. Here is the killer’s short confession to the cold-blooded murder of his
entire family; his parents, sisters Dawn and Allison, and brothers Mark and John
Matthew-


It all started so fast. Once I started, I just couldn‘t stop. It went so fast.


Not surprisingly, he had been drunk and high on heroin, possibly even LSD, on the early
morning of the killings. Drugs such as heroin and LSD represent, in part, what is
termed in Greek ―Pharmakeia‖ (sorceries; drugs of all types), and we see that
Pharmakeia (Strong’s G-5331) is a trademark of end-times Babylon, Revelation 18:23-


And the light of a candle shall shine no more at all in thee; and the voice of the
bridegroom and of the bride shall be heard no more at all in thee: for thy merchants
were the great men of the earth; for by thy sorceries were all nations deceived.
And in Hebrew ―Kesheph‖ (Strong’s H-3785), as speaking of Babylon’s demise we read
in Isaiah 47:9-


But these two things shall come to thee in a moment in one day, the loss of children,
and widowhood: they shall come upon thee in their perfection for the multitude of thy
sorceries, and for the great abundance of thine enchantments.


Babylon’s demise is clearly linked, in significant part, to her addiction to ―sorceries‖,
which includes by definition drugs both legal (prescription) and illegal. Further, the
Bible calls these drugs and their spiritual effects ―witchcraft‖. Drugs are therefore
considered ―demonic‖. Was Ronald DeFeo possessed? Well, not to deflect blame for the
man’s actions in any way, but to a degree certainly he was, since he was under the
influence of these substances and therefore of demonic spirits.


In a broader sense, ―sorceries‖ also points the finger at the major pharmaceutical
companies, over half of which are American-based, which do their best to keep the
population of Babylon ―drugged up‖ and therefore spiritually deceived. [This is not a
condemnation of anyone who takes prescription drugs out of medical necessity,
including my own loved ones. Please realize that I am speaking here in general terms]


Let me repeat that- America Babylon will be judged, in part, for her addiction to and
propagation of drugs, both legal and illicit! That is stated clearly in the Word of the
Lord.


Part V; Fire Island- a most important lighthouse and a modern-day
Sodom:


Keeping in mind that parts of Fire Island are under the jurisdiction of Babylon town, the
Lighthouse has played a very prominent role (similar to that of the nearby Babylon
water tower), as a navigational guide for ships coming into the world’s largest port, the
Port of New York. The Fire Island Lighthouse is located in Robert Moses State Park,
which is part of the Fire Island National Seashore.


http://www.nps.gov/fiis/index.htm
But, how did this island come to be associated with ―Fire‖? Well, there are four
plausible explanations. The first is that the color of the abundant poison ivy in the
autumn is brilliant red, making the island appear as if it is on fire. Secondly,
generations ago whalers used to build fires on the island’s beach to render whale
blubber into oil. Next, it has been noted that centuries ago scheming pirates lit fires on
the beach to lure ships ashore so they could pillage the valuable cargo. The most likely
explanation for the name ―fire‖, however, is that it is simply an Anglicized Dutch name.
 The Dutch word for four is vier (pronounced ―fear‖), and an English map from 1798
labels four islands in the area as ―Fier Islands.‖ It’s easy to see how the name Fire Island
likely evolved from ―Fier‖ Island.


It is my humble opinion that the naming of this island was not ―chance‖, and to my
thinking God Himself is ultimately behind it, for indeed ―fire‖ is the destiny for the
entire nation of Babylon, and Fire Island plays a major role leading to the clear
recognition of America as Babylon.




                                            The original Fire Island Lighthouse was an
85-foot-tall octagonal stone tower, built on the southwest tip of the island, the purpose
of which was to mark the entrance to Fire Island Inlet and the eastern entrance to New
York’s lower bay. In other words, as stated earlier it was hugely important for
navigation into the world‘s busiest port. This lighthouse tower commenced operation
on November 1, 1858, which is 28 years (almost to the day) before the neighboring
Statue of Liberty took her place overlooking the Harbor and the nation. A glance at the
maps above and below reveal why the town of Babylon (including Fire Island) is of such
great importance to navigation.
                                            . . . note lighthouse on side nearest New York
Harbor (which is slightly off image to left) . . .


According to the Annual Report of the Lighthouse Board, in 1894, Fire Island
Lighthouse represents . . .-


. . . the most important light for transatlantic steamers bound for New
York. It is generally the first one they make and from which they lay their course.


Yet, nearly a century later-


On December 31, 1973, the Fire Island Lighthouse was decommissioned; its role having
been assumed by a flashing strobe light atop the water tower at the nearby park.


That would be the Babylon water tower marked ―Welcome to Babylon‖, which was in
operation until sometime in the 1980s.


Fire Island lighthouse is federally-protected as part of the Fire Island National
Seashore. Here is a view of the lighthouse, as it still appears today-




                                            Sadly, yet prophetically, Fire Island is also
making its name as a modern-day Sodom. With the legalization of same-sex marriage in
New York state on July 24 of this year (act passed on June 24), gay and lesbian couples
have apparently been flocking to Fire Island for their honeymoons, and often even for
the nuptials themselves. More on this later . . . but it is obvious that Fire Island has a
long and storied history as a ―gay playground‖. For example, from Wikipedia-


Long Island New York has long been a gay-friendly destination, with world-renowned
resort areas including Fire Island, the Hamptons and Long Island Wine
Country, among others.


Next, again from R.A. Coombes, from his book ―America, The Babylon . . .‖ (remember,
this was written in 1998, thirteen years ago)-


Fire Island, an area noted for being host to unbridled sexual hedonism in the open
public and along its beaches in the summer time.


And, this from-


http://www.discoverlongisland.com/media/pr/default.aspx?id=41&print=1


The people at Fire Island Limousine have been catering to the Gay and Lesbian
community since 1980. Please consider us when planning your wedding or special
event.


We are looking forward to serving you and your guests on your Wedding Day. We
would be happy to escort you in one of our beautiful and comfortable limousines.


Recently, however, things have apparently ―really heated up‖ with the passage of
gay/lesbian/transgendered marriage in New York, as we read from an article entitled:


“Three More of New York City‟s Gayest Places to Get Married”-


http://www.jaunted.com/story/2011/7/25/17582/5698/travel/Three+More+of+New+
York+City%27s+Gayest+Places+to+Get+Married

Okay so it‘s not technically New York City, but Fire Island is part of New York State
and therefore totally valid as a same-sex marriage location, provided you picked up
your marriage license before heading out to this strip of island that runs along Long
Island, separating the Hamptons from the wild ocean. Cars are not permitted on the
majority of the land, which makes sense considering the whole place can be easily
traversed by rental golf cart or vintage cruiser bicycle.


We kind of adore the idea of saying your vows at the Fire Island
Lighthouse—ultimate phallic symbol as it is—plus the lighthouse-y
romance, of course. Truly, Fire Island is the spot for a gay beach wedding.
Think about it: sand in your toes, sunglasses on and the love of your life a
moment away from saying “I do.” We do.




                                     After a newly-engaged couple agrees on Fire Island
as the lovely location for their wedding ceremony and honeymoon, a nice option for the
soon-to-be newlywed gay or lesbian pair might be to stay in the ultra-romantic
―Madison Pines‖ or, as it is known, simply ―The Madison‖-


http://www.themadisonfi.com/

The Madison, Fire Island is situated in the heart of the world‘s most beautiful gay
resort community . . . there‘s nothing like The Madison for gays, lesbians, or anyone . .
.


Wow, so even just ―anyone‖ can stay in the Madison? Even ―straight‖ couples? Parents
with young children? Apparently they don’t discriminate! If that’s not convincing
enough, there is more-
There‘s no place in America like Fire Island, a barrier beach that‘s 50 miles from
Manhattan but a universe away. The beaches are among the purest and most
beautiful on earth.


The (Madison) Pines, located on the island‘s east end, is an international destination.
Free in spirit yet impossibly stylish, it is both beach hideaway and fashion runway, a
gay playground and a couple‘s paradise.


The Pines sits at a pinnacle of gay culture: Disco was born here; so was La Cage aux
Folles, the musical. Candidates for president trek here. Novelists are inspired here.


Some spend their Fire Island weekends at the beach with a book. Others live for the
social scene, the beach parties and the nightly rituals of its legendary dance clubs. No
matter – there‘s not a moment of the day that isn‘t magical, or a vista that isn‘t
astonishingly beautiful.


Hopefully, I’ve made my point that Fire Island is essentially a modern-day Sodom. If
you read the Genesis 19 account on the destruction of the ―cities of the plain‖ (Sodom,
Gomorrah, Admah, and Zeboim) it is clear that the residents of these cities were being
judged by God for one major sin and one alone: the practice of homosexuality. This is
obvious especially in Genesis 19:1-5-


And there came two angels to Sodom at even; and Lot sat in the gate of Sodom: and
1


Lot seeing them rose up to meet them; and he bowed himself with his face toward the
ground;


 And he said, Behold now, my lords, turn in, I pray you, into your servant‘s house, and
    2


tarry all night, and wash your feet, and ye shall rise up early, and go on your ways.
And they said, Nay; but we will abide in the street all night.


 And he pressed upon them greatly; and they turned in unto him, and entered into his
    3


house; and he made them a feast, and did bake unleavened bread, and they did eat.


 But before they lay down, the men of the city, even the men of Sodom, compassed the
    4


house round, both old and young, all the people from every quarter:
 And they called unto Lot, and said unto him, Where are the men which came in to thee
 5


this night? bring them out unto us, that we may know them.


―know‖, from the word yada` {yaw-dah’} = ―have sexual relations with‖ courtesy of-

rse=Go


Also, we read in Genesis 13:13-


But the men of Sodom were wicked and sinners before the LORD exceedingly.


Here are other verses which prove what befell those cities, and this is a precursor to
what will shortly befall end-times Babylon. Fire Island, Babylon, New York, is truly a
microcosm of Babylon, America. Remember, the word ―sodomite‖ is derived from the
name of the ill-fated Biblical city which famously and tragically thumbed its collective
nose at God Almighty.


As to what actually became of Sodom, Gomorrah and the two lesser-known cities? We
find the answer in Genesis 19:24-28-


 Then the LORD rained upon Sodom and upon Gomorrah brimstone and
24


fire from the LORD out of heaven;


 And he overthrew those cities, and all the plain, and all the inhabitants of the cities,
 25


and that which grew upon the ground.

 26   But his wife looked back from behind him, and she became a pillar of salt.


 And Abraham gat up early in the morning to the place where he stood before the
 27


LORD:


 And he looked toward Sodom and Gomorrah, and toward all the land of the plain,
 28


and beheld, and, lo, the smoke of the country went up as the smoke of a
furnace.
As to what will become of Babylon the Great, also known as end-times Babylon, also
known as the United States of America? We read of the manner of her end in Isaiah
13:19-


And Babylon, the glory of kingdoms, the beauty of the Chaldees‘ excellency, shall be as
when God overthrew Sodom and Gomorrah


As well as Jeremiah 50:40-


As God overthrew Sodom and Gomorrah and the neighbour cities thereof, saith the
LORD; so shall no man abide there, neither shall any son of man dwell therein.


And Revelation 18:8-


Therefore shall her plagues come in one day, death, and mourning, and famine; and
she shall be utterly burned with fire: for strong is the Lord God who judgeth her.




                                          Now, let’s read Genesis 19:28 again-


And he looked toward Sodom and Gomorrah, and toward all the land of the plain, and
beheld, and, lo, the smoke of the country went up as the smoke of a furnace.


In comparison with Revelation 18:18-


And cried when they saw the smoke of her burning, saying, What city is like unto this
great city!

And Revelation 19:3-
And again they said, Alleluia. And her* smoke rose up for ever and ever.


[*her = the great whore/Babylon . . .]


Sisters and brothers, I am not making this up nor am I exaggerating. This is God’s
Word. I am simply acting as a watchman and obeying his command to sound the
trumpet! America’s demise is very near, and her end will be by fire. Mark my words . . .
infinitely better yet, mark His Word!


Part VI; The proximity of Babylon to the Statue of Liberty and New York
Harbor:


It should be clear to the reader that the Statue of Liberty is a powerful and unique
symbol of America. It is internationally recognized as such; that is, not as a symbol of
New York City, but of the entire nation known as ―The United States of America‖. In
this article, I have also attempted to compare the nearby town of Babylon, New York to
the entire country of America. It is clear to me that America is Babylon (Babylon the
Great, end-times Babylon); therefore, a study of Babylon town and New York City
should offer insights which then reflect upon the entire nation. It is also common
knowledge that the Port of New York (or New York Harbor) is considered the world’s
most important. Finally, the relationship of Fire Island, part of which is within the
limits of the town of Babylon, with Babylon town and village, New York Harbor and,
indirectly, even the Statue of Liberty has been documented in this article. The figure
below shows these four main locations and their relationships to one another:


Babylon (town and villages)


Fire Island (lighthouse)


Statue of Liberty on Liberty Island


New York Harbor
Part VII; Legendary townsfolk- a man called “Satan” and a “freethought‟
atheist woman:


Early on in this study, it came to my attention that there were two residents of Babylon
town who stood head and shoulders above the others, in terms of fame, impact on the
world, and symbolism. These are Robert Moses and Thelma (―Butterfly‖) McQueen.
One man and one woman. I will discuss Mr. Moses first.


Robert Moses


Robert Moses was born in New Haven, Connecticut on December 18, 1888. He was the
son of German immigrants, both Jewish, although they were non-practicing Jews and
he therefore was not raised in a religious household. He had by all accounts a fairly
normal upbringing, and was a successful student in college, obtaining degrees from Yale
and Oxford. During his long career, he became known as ―the master builder‖, for his
legacy of urban highways and bridges lives on long after his death. To say that he was a
polarizing figure would be a vast understatement.




                         I read as much as I could on the man and, although it is often
difficult through the fog of history to accurately pinpoint the truth of a matter, or the
character of a person, I have concluded that Mr. Moses was, basically, an extremely
selfish, egotistical man who was also a racist and a classist. You see, while prayerfully
studying his life, the Holy Spirit immediately ―clued me in‖ to a comparison between
Mr. Moses and a boss I had many years ago. This boss, now wildly successful by worldly
(especially Babylonian) standards, embodies all of those vile attributes I mentioned
above, and more.


Basically, Mr. Moses was a villain, but he was a uniquely American villain. I will include
some quotes from Wikipedia and other sources which, I believe, reveal this man’s
satanic nature. Here is the Wikipedia link-


http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Robert_Moses


Robert Moses changed shorelines, built bridges, tunnels and roadways, and
transformed neighborhoods forever. His decisions favoring highways over public
transit helped create the modern suburbs of Long Island and influenced a generation
of engineers, architects, and urban planners who spread his philosophies across the
nation. Never elected to public office, Moses was responsible for the creation and
leadership of numerous public authorities which he could control without having
to answer to the general public or to elected officials.


His works remain extremely controversial. His supporters believe he made the city
viable for the 21st century by building an infrastructure that most people wanted and
that has endured. His critics claim that he preferred automobiles to people, that he
displaced hundreds of thousands of residents in New York City, uprooted traditional
neighborhoods by building expressways through them, contributed to the ruin of the
South Bronx and the amusement parks of Coney Island, caused the departure of the
Brooklyn Dodgers and the New York Giants Major League baseball teams, and
precipitated the decline of public transport through disinvestment and neglect.


As the head of many public authorities, Moses‘s title as chairman gave his entities the
flexibility associated with private enterprise, along with the tax-exempt debt capacity
associated with government agencies.

Moses‘ image suffered a further blow in 1974 with the publication of The Power Broker,
a Pulitzer Prize-winning biography by Robert A. Caro. Caro‘s 1,200-page opus (edited
from over 3,000 pages long) largely destroyed the remainder of Moses‘s reputation;
essayist Phillip Lopate writes that ―Moses‟s satanic reputation with the public can
be traced, in the main, to…Caro‘s magnificent biography.‖ People had come to see
Moses as a bully who disregarded public input, but until the publication of Caro‘s book,
they had not known that he had allowed his brother Paul to spend much of his life in
poverty. Paul Moses, who was interviewed by Caro shortly before his death, claimed
Robert had exerted undue influence on their mother to change their will in his favour
shortly before her death. Caro notes that Paul was on bad terms with their mother
over a long period and she may have changed the will of her own accord. Caro
suggested that Robert‘s subsequent treatment of Paul may have been legally justifiable
but was morally questionable.


Immediately I was struck by his last name, ―Moses‖. Of course, Robert Moses was also
of Jewish ethnicity, whereas the Bible hero Moses is best known for leading his people
out of slavery and eventually into the Promised Land (although Moses wasn’t to make it
there himself). The Hebrews did wander and languish in the wilderness for 40 years,
due to their refusal to honor the True God, but their leader was Moses, a shepherd-type
figure, obviously a great man of God, very unselfish, and a Prophet.


I am here suggesting that Robert Moses was a ―type‖ of anti-Moses; in other words, all
of the positive traits of the real Moses are embodied as negative traits within the life and
person of Robert Moses. I am especially intrigued that the career of Robert Moses was
also 40 years long. That makes the comparison between Robert Moses and Moses that
much more fascinating! My point is that Moses (being a ―type‖ of Christ) led his people
to the Promised Land; whereby Robert Moses being the antithesis of both Christ and
Moses ―led his people‖ (the American people) on a destructive path. Both ―paths‖ were
forty years long. The number forty, Biblically, references ―a time of trial‖ (E.W.
Bullinger).


Exodus 16:35-


And the children of Israel did eat manna forty years, until they came to a land
inhabited; they did eat manna, until they came unto the borders of the land of Canaan.
I find the following information very interesting considering these 40 years, so I’ll go
ahead and attach a fairly long quote; the entire article is well written and very
entertaining-


http://tcsidewalks.blogspot.com/2007/08/other-city-sidewalks-babylon-ny.html


The only thing I knew about Babylon NY, located about a third out on the South
shore of Long Island, was that it had been the home of Robert Moses, scourge
of American cities. If you don‘t know who Robert Moses is, I urge you to put aside a
month, sometime in the near future, and read The Power Broker, Robert Caro‘s 1974
Pulitzer Prize winning biography of Moses. It‘s a fantastic biography, combining
drama and painstaking detail with the rarest of ease, and in it you learn the dangers
of concentrated power as Caro tells the saga of Moses‟s insane forty-year grip on
New York infrastructure, building highways through neighborhoods and
displacing hundreds of thousands of people, spearheading ‗the projects‘, and
singlehandedly yoking U.S. cities to the automobile for what will probably be an
eternity. (On the other hand, the bridges he built haven‘t fallen down yet.)


So, needless to say, when I got to Babylon NY, the town where Moses parked his
subsidized yacht, I was most filled with biblical trepidation… trepidation and a
desire to somehow unearth the visible scars of Moses‘s mad genius. Would I find a
Moses bust? Would it be the land of gated communities? Or hanging gardens?
What I found, though, was a pastoral fishing village surrounded by well-manicured,
sidewalk-free, and quite expensive real estate.


Despite its lamppost flower planters (hanging gardens?), its inlaid red brick trim, and
the delicate arch of its maple trees that lend it a precious authenticity… despite all that,
I didn‘t‘ find an urban spirit in Babylon NY. For one thing, the ‗downtown‘ (or village
center) is really sparsely populated.


I went on a long walk from the downtown to the Babylon harbor . . . The best I could
do was the entirely benchless municipal pier, where I sat on the pavement with a book
and stared out at the sea. Would Moses were here, I‘d kick him in the balls.

Well, that was colorful!
Here’s another one-


http://assholes-of-history.blogspot.com/2008/11/robert-moses.html


The author quotes Nicolai Ouroussof in his article ―Complex, Contradictory Robert
Moses‖ from the 2/2/2007 edition of the New York Times-


… a villainous figure who, through his control of federal slum clearance and
highway money, was able to trample tens of thousands of lives, uprooting entire
neighborhoods in a quest to impose his megalomaniacal vision: a city of dehumanizing
superblocks strangled in ribbons of expressways.


From Wikipedia again, a most important quote-


Moses was also in large part responsible for the United Nations‘ decision to
headquarter in Manhattan as opposed to Philadelphia.


This is fascinating! So, we see that in part because of Robert Moses, Babylon the Great
(the country) is most associated with New York City and the United Nations, for as we
read in Revelation the city ―Babylon‖ is that which the great men of the world both flock
to and reside in, none other than New York City! Revelation 18:23 (in part)-


. . . for thy merchants were the great men of the earth; for by thy sorceries
were all nations deceived.


And Revelation 17:18-


And the woman which thou sawest is that great city, which reigneth over the kings of
the earth.


Robert Moses was absolutely a satanic man, and I was not surprised to find that he was
indeed a resident of Babylon.


Thelma McQueen-

Sources for this section include-
http://www.answers.com/topic/butterfly-mcqueen and


http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Butterfly_McQueen


Thelma McQueen was born on either the 7th or 8th of January in the year 1911. She was a
movie actress best known for her role as ―Prissy‖ in the classic 1939 film ―Gone with the
Wind‖. The name ―Thelma‖ means ―willful‖; stubborn, if you will. She was generally
called ―Butterfly‖, however, which is a name she obtained early in her acting career
while living in Babylon, New York. Her last name, ―McQueen‖ means either ―son (or
daughter) of the good man‖ or ―daughter of a Queen‖. Here is a famous picture of
Butterfly McQueen from her role as ―Prissy‖ in ―Gone with the Wind‖-




                             She was originally from Florida, lived awhile in Georgia,
and was raised by her mother, as her father apparently abandoned the family when she
was but 5 years old. Her family moved to Babylon, New York, during Thelma’s
intermediate school years, and there they worked as servants for a wealthy white family.
 Thelma went to school, and while trying to decide on an educational choice, took up
and failed chemistry, started nursing school, and then embraced acting. She became
popular in the local drama scene, as far away as New York City, and it was at this time
that her nickname ―Butterfly‖ was coined. Her new handle stuck. She hit the big time
with her role in ―Gone with the Wind‖ and had other successful acting stints, as well,
although understandably she did not enjoy being typecast. Ms. McQueen never married
and never bore children.

When I started this research, I knew nothing about Butterfly McQueen, only that her
name seemed vaguely familiar, maybe. I figured that her beliefs were probably typical
of young black women back in her time, those born in the South at least, that is I
imagined that she was most likely a Christian. Imagine my shock when a search of
images of her uncovered this almost immediately-




                                        I dug a bit deeper and found out that she was
an esteemed member of the nation’s most powerful organization for atheists and
agnostics, the Freedom from Religion Foundation (FFRF) of Madison, Wisconsin,
having even received their ―Freethought Heroine‖ award, albeit post-mortem. Here is
their website; if you feel compelled to view this spiritually dangerous material, please do
so with discernment-


http://ffrf.org/


With this in mind, let me reveal some quotes which the FFRF have (proudly, I might
add) attributed to Ms. McQueen; these based on an October 8, 1989 interview she gave
to Gayle White, a reporter for the Atlanta Journal and Constitution-


As my ancestors are free from slavery, I am free from the slavery of religion.


If we had put the energy on earth and on people that we put on mythology and on
Jesus Christ, we wouldn‘t have any hunger or homelessness.


Christianity and studying the Bible has sapped our minds so we don‘t know anything
else.


They say the streets are going to be beautiful in heaven. I‘m trying to make the streets
beautiful here . . . When it‘s clean and beautiful, I think America is heaven. And some
people are hell.


Wow! She certainly didn’t mince words, but how truly disappointing her views were,
and apparently she carried them with her to her death on December 22, 1995. So, based
on the quotes above, she believed that the Bible is ―mythology‖, reading the Bible makes
a person stupid, and to be a Christian is to be a slave. She was, indeed, a most devoted
atheist. She even willed a good portion of her money to her beloved FFRF.


Butterfly McQueen died in a fire. Not of smoke inhalation; rather, she burned to death!
Her death was simply horrific, and I will recount the basic details here, in my own words
(sources listed above).


Around dinner time that Friday, Ms. McQueen attempted to light a kerosene burner or
heater, when it exploded, catching her clothes on fire. She ran screaming from her
house to the carport, engulfed by flames, and suffered second- and third-degree burns
over 70% of her body. Quickly, neighbors and Boy Scouts converged on the scene. The
Boy Scout who was right by her side was named James Pride. Here is Mr. Pride’s eye-
witness account, courtesy of-
http://m.independentmail.com/news/2011/apr/17/butterfly-mcqueen-lives-through-
project/


We were working with the food bank to deliver food right before Christmas. We
stopped because of the fire. She was there (in the carport) crying out for help. The
assistant leader told her to get on the rug, and we all took sides of the rug and we
pulled her on the rug out of the flames because the flames were engulfing the carport,
too. She was very burned, but she was saying ‗thank-you‘ the whole time. That‘s all
she said. She might have said it close to 50 times. I was there basically telling
her, „Jesus loves you.‟ And I kept saying that. We didn‘t know who she was.
We had no idea this was somebody of notoriety. I feel like I‘ve had a connection with
her since then. I just feel like she might be praying for me or something, looking out
for me. I think of her sometimes.


Only the blackened floor and roof of her small wooden cottage, a part of her larger
stucco house, remained standing. The fire department arrived on the scene as young
Mr. Pride was testifying to the elderly, dying Ms. McQueen about the love of Jesus. She
was still conscious. She was taken to Augusta Regional Medical Center, where she was
soon pronounced dead. Some sources say that she lived 10 hours after the fire, others
suggest that she perished within the hour. Regardless, we know that she did not live to
see the following day, which brought to mind Isaiah 17:14-
And behold at eveningtide trouble; and before the morning he* is not. This is the
portion of them that spoil us, and the lot of them that rob us.


[*Other translations use ―she‖ or ―they‖]


Yes, I consider Ms. McQueen to be a ―type‖ of America, a ―type‖ of Babylon. I believe
that her death is prophetic, and through the circumstances of her own demise we can
foresee the vivid imagery of America’s own future ruin.


It stands to reason that since ―Babylon the Great‖ and the ―Harlot‖ are essentially one
and the same, Butterfly McQueen is undoubtedly also a ―type‖ of America’s goddess,
Ishtar, as famously represented by the Statue of Liberty. Why do I say this? Well, where
do I start with all the connections?! First, as stated previously ―McQueen‖ means
―daughter of a Queen‖.


Speaking of America Babylon, God has this to say in Revelation 18:7-


How much she hath glorified herself, and lived deliciously, so much torment and
sorrow give her: for she saith in her heart, I sit a queen, and am no widow, and
shall see no sorrow.


And, in the New American Standard version, this is Isaiah 47:5-7-


Sit silently, and go into darkness,
5


O daughter of the Chaldeans,
For you will no longer be called
The queen of kingdoms.

6―I was angry with My people,
I profaned My heritage
And gave them into your hand.
You did not show mercy to them,
On the aged you made your yoke very heavy.
―Yet you said, ‗I will be a queen forever.‘
7


These things you did not consider
Nor remember the outcome of them.


But, alas, this is instead her fate, Revelation 18:8-


Therefore shall her plagues come in one day, death, and mourning, and famine; and
she shall be utterly burned with fire: for strong is the Lord God who judgeth her.


I think the connection here is crystal clear.


Author R.A. Coombes has convincingly demonstrated that the Statue of Liberty depicts
the Babylonian goddess Ishtar, known by many other names including ―Mother
Goddess‖. I have also discussed this at some length in my aforementioned article on
this blog (link above).


Dr. Coombes goes on to state, concerning America’s goddess Ishtar, a fallen angel-


Ishtar was never a physical ‗mother‘… but rather a ‗madam‘ over the priestesses.
Ishtar was never married and never had a child…but she was called ―mother‖
of the temple priestesses. Kind of like a ―house mother.‖


It is also clearly prophetic that Ms. McQueen was an avowed atheist. Do atheists truly
not believe in God? Many of them actually do believe in a higher being, but choose to
proudly ignore Him (which is actually more satanic than atheist, per se). Isn’t it
amazing that the young man who told Ms. McQueen all about the love of Jesus, while
she lay dying, was named James Pride? What is the connection? To me, it is simply
yet profoundly this-


Pride couldn’t save her, only Jesus could.


If she had only accepted Him into her life. Perhaps she did, while being comforted by
the young Boy Scout, perhaps she did ask Jesus into her heart. I pray so.

Furthermore, Ms. McQueen died within the hour, a ―type‖ of America Babylon’s near-
future demise, for which we read, Revelation 18:19-
And they cast dust on their heads, and cried, weeping and wailing, saying, Alas, alas,
that great city, wherein were made rich all that had ships in the sea by reason of her
costliness! for in one hour is she made desolate.


Thelma ―Butterfly‖ McQueen is best known, internationally in fact, for her role in the
epic film ―Gone with the Wind‖. From-


http://www.answers.com/topic/butterfly-mcqueen#ixzz1TikhxqQx


In a famous scene she accompanies Rhett Butler, Melanie, and the newborn baby on the
journey from Atlanta, and cowers on the floor of the wagon, occasionally popping her
head up to scream hysterically at the sight of the burning city.




                                           I find it not only striking that ―Gone with the
Wind‖ has to do with destruction by fire, but even more shocking that this fire comes
from the ―north‖, by manner of the Union forces. Here is a quote from Union General
William T. Sherman, who ordered the burning of Atlanta-


. . . we rode out of Atlanta by the Decatur road . . . we naturally paused to look back
upon the scenes of our past battles . . . behind us lay Atlanta, smouldering and in ruins,
the black smoke rising high in air, and hanging like a pall over the ruined city.


This destruction from the north is a true foreshadowing of what will happen to America
as a whole on a day in the very near future. ―Gone with the Wind‖? Indeed, for the Lord
comes as a ―whirlwind out of the North‖ to judge this country, this end-times Babylon,
this America. As we read in Jeremiah 51:48-
Then the heaven and the earth, and all that is therein, shall sing for Babylon: for the
spoilers shall come unto her from the north, saith the LORD.


Tragically, one of America’s most famous, beloved, and successful movies, ―Gone with
the Wind‖ is a suitable title for America’s approaching day of destruction, as America is
―reaping the whirlwind‖ of God’s judgment, as we read in Hosea 8:7-


For they have sown the wind, and they shall reap the whirlwind: it hath no
stalk: the bud shall yield no meal: if so be it yield, the strangers shall swallow it up.




Part VIII; What America can expect soon:


This study represents a portion of the fruits of my pursuing the specific and unique
watchman calling which God has placed upon me, which is to use the gifts He has given
me to alert the American populace that their (our) nation is Babylon the Great i.e. end-
times Babylon. I do so unashamedly, and with the knowledge that the vast majority of
the readers will ignore this call. These readers will include large numbers of both non-
believers and Christians. Yet, this is all about saving a few souls from the fires of Hell
and giving others a ―heads up‖ on the Biblical truth that America is Babylon, so as they
might prepare accordingly. I am simply a man who is obeying God and trusting in Him!


What can America expect? What will ultimately become of her? Her complete and utter
destruction is fast-approaching. This judgment will be by fire; perhaps a heavenly fire
or, more likely (I believe), a nuclear firestorm. This event will kill tens of millions of
people instantly, hundreds of millions within months, and leave perhaps 10% of the
population as survivors. To understand what is coming, you should read the referenced
books by R.A. Coombes, John Price, and A.P. Watchman which are, in order,
―America, the Babylon . . .‖, ―The End of America . . .‖, and ―Reaping the
Whirlwind . . .‖. You could also visit the ―wakeupbabylon‖ blogsite, as its author is
currently performing unique and impressive Biblical research on this very topic,
including details regarding the fate of the few survivors of this judgment on Babylon.


Most importantly, you must ask God what you are to do personally; in addition, you
must fully repent, seek His face, and learn to recognize His voice.


Will there be a Rapture before this earth-shattering event, which I believe kicks off the
final 3.5 years? I do not know; perhaps, God will do as He wills. However, I am more
inclined to believe that there will be a supernatural protection of the True Saints,
however not of the deceived members of the Laodicean Church which is prevalent in
America, but of His actual followers. We see a Biblical precedent for protection from the
fire in Daniel 3 (the three young men in the furnace), Genesis 19 (Lot’s family during the
destruction of Sodom and Gomorrah), and Joshua 6 (Rahab’s family during the fall of
Jericho).


Remember- Babylon, New York represents New York City. New York City, in turn, is
essentially the capital ―Babylon‖ and represents the heart of the nation Babylon. The
nation Babylon is none other than the United States of America, and she will burn in
fire. The Day of Judgment, of the Lord’s Wrath, is soon, very soon, just mere years
away. For more on the urgency of this matter, and compelling evidence, please eagerly
await my next article on this topic which will be entitled:


―America‟s Destiny Revealed within Her Landscape, Part II . . .‖


Go with God, sisters and brothers, and please alert your loved ones and your sleeping
church to the Truth that America’s demise is ―at the door‖.


Fear thou not; for I am with thee: be not dismayed; for I am thy God: I will strengthen
thee; yea, I will help thee; yea, I will uphold thee with the right hand of my
righteousness. Isaiah 41:10

Update 28 August, 2011-


I find it most interesting that Hurricane Irene’s (a borderline Hurricane/Tropical Storm
during New York landfall) ―eye‖ (which was poorly defined) or, better, ―center of
circulation‖, encompassed both Manhattan on its West and Babylon on its East; yes,
that is correct . . . Babylon, being in the upper right quadrant of the ―eyewall‖ should
have, theoretically, experienced the highest winds of any New York location.


Great information on the storm here, as it was experienced in Babylon-


http://babylonvillage.patch.com/


So, this storm is an obvious message from God Almighty; there is no way that a storm
can travel thousands of miles across the Atlantic and Caribbean and just ―happen‖ to
center on both Manhattan and Babylon with pinpoint accuracy. Indeed not! Rather,
this is a warning! Repent now, for His judgment is close at hand! This storm has
profoundly and divinely confirmed the contents of this article in their entirety, not to
mention this is a confirmation as well of my prophetic calling. Message- Babylon
(and NYC) is America and America is Babylon . . .


Acknowledgments:


First and foremost, I thank our Father in Heaven for revealing His sacred secrets to
those who truly seek Him. Thanks also to the handful of friends I have left; you guys
mean so much to me and you are always in my prayers. To my sis, I pray daily that you
will break the cycle of addiction, for with the addiction tragically comes deception.
Thanks to Dr. Richard Coombes for the second most important book I’ve ever read; it
changed my life, blessings to you always.

Thank you Carlos for being willing to go forward and reveal the truth that the Lord is
revealing to you. Wow – isn’t it interesting that a man named Moses would be so
involved in the history of New York. There is a strong Jewish presence all across
America that most are unaware of. When you start checking the ―linkage‖ of the most
popular names in America you trace many of them – the greatest numbers – back to
Jewish names! Makes you wonder what ―Moses‖ could have been had he served the
Lord instead of his own selfish ambition. He brought destruction to so many homes and
so many people. He will live throughout eternity thinking about ―what he could have
done.‖


What a lonely life ―Butterfly‖ must have lived. She did not marry and did not have
children – and SHE DID NOT HAVE JESUS. She rejected the very one that would have
made her life complete and whole.


Lord I pray with Carlos that you use this article to WAKE UP the masses to what we
spiritually see on the horizon – destruction of Babylon, both the city and the country.
Holy Spirit – give them visions in the night season of what lies ahead if we (individually
and as a nation) don’t totally repent – laying everything we have, everything we are,
everything we believe on the altar of the Living God. Like ―Moses‖ we individually and
as a nation have been chasing ―business‖ – ―money‖ – ―sports‖ – entertainment – easy
living – rather than let You choose our future and our destiny. Lord, please forgive us.

Thanks so much, Jeane, and excellent points you have made. About the Jewish
contribution to the entire nation of America, absolutely. And, the lives of both Mr.
Moses and Ms. McQueen were tragic indeed. Successful by worldly standards only. I
keep seeing the scene, in my mind, of Ms. McQueen lying in her carport, badly burned,
with the Boy Scout at her side telling her about the love of Jesus. I can’t shake that
image.


Beautiful prayer, Jeane. Amen and Amen.


Carlos

Hi Carlos,
more great research and incredible uncovering of connections that are put there to be
uncovered, I believe, by such as you, for us! Knew you were very busy with something so
have been covering you in prayer. Be encouraged, brother, you are strong in the Lord
and He will keep you strong.


I awoke with a phrase in my head this morning.‖ A latter Latter Timeline.‖ Have prayed
about it and know it is for you. With the rapid unfolding of endtime events we can
become muddled and overcome. Having just read your final comments on the timing of
the Rapture etc, you have said what I see many others say. Everyone has a slightly
different picture of final events and how they will unfold, and I am talking here of people
who study the Word and pray and ask.
I believe this is an opportunity to put current events on a grid or timeline, to give us
some perspective and begin to answer some of the questions we still have about His
return.
What do you think? Thought I needed to put it out there. Definitely not my area!
Hope you received my last email.Not sure.
Blessings!

Hi Alison. I appreciate your encouragement and prayers very much. Yes, about the
―latter Latter timeline‖ wow, okay I can definitely see how that applies to me. I am
working on a Timeline, and will publish on this as the Lord allows. Now, about the
Rapture. Dr. Coombes has a very strong background in Greek, and he says that ―Come
out of her, my people‖ is a COMMAND to move up in a heavenly direction (this is my
recollection of what he discusses in his books). Therefore, he believes that the Rapture
will occur prior to America’s fall. However, Pastor John Price is of the understanding
that we are to physical leave America in order to be protected! Obviously, ―come out of
her my people‖ must first be considered in a spiritual sense- come out of the world,
come out of Babylon spiritually. (Just so there is no confusion, the information for the
books of both Dr. Coombes and Mr. Price are found in the Bibliography.). I respect both
men tremendously and, frankly, as I stated in the article I am not certain at this point. I
think, however, that the proper understanding of ―who‖ Babylon is represents one of the
very largest keys to understanding the sequence of end-times events. The fall of Babylon
should occur at either the beginning of the 7 years (if the first 3.5 are rather ―quiet‖) or
final 3.5.


I did receive your e-mail, sister. I am so sorry for not responding sooner. I have spent
many hours on this article, and it has been focused time. Now that it’s behind me, you
can expect to hear from me soon.


Blessings, and thanks so much for all of your prayers,


Carlos

what a sobering, and fascinating article, thank you for your labor of love to the Body.
I believe that it has been documented that the introduction of the AIDS virus into the
gay population in the USA was on Fire Island, during some 4th of July celebration
sometime in the late 70′s…I remember hearing this over 20 years ago, when the CDC
was more forth right on the origins of disease, but I don’t know how to research for
substantiation of that.
I also couldn’t help wondering if the blog entry in
http://wakeupbabylon.blogspot.com/2010/04/clues.html clue #5 might be related to
the birthday party of 8/4/2011, MENE MENE TEKEL UPHARSIN: the market crash,
the helio- copter crash, the further market crash, and a second (non-fatal) helio-copter
crash…the bloggers name is Drew Simmons, is that related to R.A.Coombes?

Hi, janie! I very much appreciate your comment. You have a knack for finding profound
connections! That is fascinating about the AIDS virus, and I will certainly look into this.
Wouldn’t it be tragically ironic if, indeed, there was a connection to both Fire Island and
America’s Independence Day?


The author of ―wakeupbabylon‖ has done some awesome research into Babylon, and the
sequence of events; you are correct. For example, he has attempted to track, scripturally,
both clues as to the timing of the destructive event on the Day of the Lord, as well as
what becomes of the survivors. I believe it is important to read his blog archives plus all
three books (Coombes, Price, Watchman) in order to get a big picture. Frankly, I need to
read these books again myself! Of course, a study of scipture, starting with Jeremiah 50
and 51, Isaiah 13, 14, and 47, and Revelation 14, 17, 18 is imperative.

Dr. Richard Coombes’ website is listed in the Bibliography. His Volume I is very difficult
to find as a book, but I believe that he may have both Volumes available for purchase as
PDFs? (please check link!)


It is quite amazing that the stock market fall 513 points (512.76) on Obama’s birthday
and 635 points (634.76) yesterday. Since I’m interested in numbers, I couldn’t help but
notice the double ―76″. It probably means nothing, but I find it interesting nonetheless.


Thanks again for your excellent contribution, janie, and may you be blessed,

Carlos

Thank you Carlos for yet another profound article. You have shown yourself time and
again to be a gentleman, scholar, scriptorian, and humble disciple of Christ.


A couple of things struck me with great interest. In regards to Ms. McQueens’ comments
of religion as slavery – isn’t it fascinating the contrasting views between the wicked and
the righteous on the belief that religion is slavery? Ms. McQueen viewed it with
abhorrence – she reveled in being free from God – while the apostle Paul rejoiced to be
considered a prisoner of Jesus Christ (see Eph. 3:1; 4:1; Phil. 1:1,9; and 2 Tim. 1:8)!


In reality we are all slaves to someone or something. As soon as we follow satan and
commit sin we become free from God, but become enslaved to satan and harmful
addictions such as drugs, alcohol, pornography, pride, hatred, dis-honesty, etc. On the
other hand, as soon as we follow God and repent, and are baptized, we become free from
satan and sin, but become enslaved to keeping His commandments – for we are ―bought
with a price.‖ Throughout my life I have been a prisoner to both parties, and I can testify
that I would far rather be a prisoner of Christ than satan. Because when I am a prisoner
of satan I have no freedom, I sink deeper and deeper into bondage and despair. While
on the other hand, when I choose to be a prisoner of Jesus Christ, I am given more and
more freedom and joy. How tragic and foolish to think that we can find freedom and joy
in not following God! When we harbor such delusions we deceive only ourselves!


The other thought comes from your Acknowledgments, in reference to your statement of
having only a handful of friends left. When it seems that you are all alone and no-one
stands by you, please remember: ―Fear not: for they that be with us are more than they
that be with them‖ (2 Kings 6:16)


Once again, thank you and may God continue to bless you in the work you do!

Thanks so much, brother Erin, for your kind words.


That was a beautiful comparison of slavery versus freedom! Amen! Yes, indeed, Erin, I
can totally relate to being a slave to sin, for that was how I used to ―live‖ at one time (not
truly living!). Now, to be a follower of Christ is to be truly free, yet rejoice in our
bondage! To be truly alive! Amen!


Thanks, brother. Yes, indeed, the few friends I do have are a tremendous blessing, and I
adore each and every one of them. For, they are truly sisters and brothers in Christ. I
pray that they will forgive my slowness lately in responding to e-mails!


Blessings, brother, and I’ll be in touch soon.

Carlos,
Thank you for taking the time to uncover all these things. I find it interesting in the time
line of Robert Caro’s book in 1974 was the same year of the tragedy of the Defeo family.
For some time I have been suspect of what is behind the medical industry and the
transfer of wealth that has been accomplished because of it, along with the obvious
results of legal and illegal drugs. The primary problem with all of that it fails to
recognize the sovereign ability to heal by God himself and Gods people failing to
recognize their own sin’s as often being the cause of their infirmities. There is another
distinction about Long Island is that somewhere on it there was a German scientist that
was working on developing biological agents and had developed a virus that was very
difficult to cure and it left Long Island in Ticks that had become embedded in deer that
swam to Lyme Conn. And it has spread since then to quite an area. I read this a couple
of years ago in The Yankee Magazine.
And as for December 11, 2010 it seems that there some things of significance that
occurred near that time, like the fires at Mt. Carmel in Israel. From the first to the fifth.
I am with you on the idea that America is modern Babylon. And as for the thing to be
doing is the bigger thing. I am finding that the enemy has successfully infiltrated the
―church‖. That is very evident to me The call to come out of her my people is one that
would call Gods people out from under the influence and or authority of any system or
organization that fails to uphold the Word of God as it was written and intended. There
are many things that are sitting over the ―church‖ in the way of symbols, images,
traditions, leadership that have secret affiliations with organizations such as the
Freemasons, Jesuit priesthood and other fraternal ―orders‖. All of these things are under
the authority of the Prince and power of the air.


I renounce any affiliation or any co-operation that I may have had in the past with any
thing that has been evident or not that is not based upon the truth of Gods Word or of
Christ, and ask the Father in heaven to show me what I need to see on a day by day basis
the things that I need to give up and the things I need to do. And that he would light my
path with his Holy Spirit that I might not fall into the trap that is being set for those who
do not watch with diligence.
I am with Jeane, Lord please forgive us.

Excellent points, Jeff, thanks so much! Yes, you said it, the ―drug‖ problem boils down
mainly to a spiritual problem, people seeking the wrong kind of ―healing‖ and, as you
mentioned, sin being the spiritual basis of many illnesses as well.


Your comment about Lyme disease is intriguing. I have relatives in Minnesota who have
suffered greatly from this illness, which is typically spread by deer ticks as you
mentioned. These Lyme-bearing ticks just keep moving further west. I find it fascinating
that this all started on Long Island, based on what you have uncovered. Really amazing.
Indeed, Jeff, coming out of Babylon spiritually . . . generally that would include leaving
behind ―church‖ (denominational) traditions if they conflict with the Word of God, at
least it does to me. Furthermore, there is something deeper and more difficult to
describe, but it just involves seeing the world entirely different then we used to. Sure,
when we are born again, this happens as well, but it seems to reach a different level as
we ―come out‖ and are able to discern the spiritual battles around us and to see things as
idols which we may have once considered harmless or even beneficial.


About the connection of the 1974 dates? Great catch on that, Jeff. As to when America
started her fall? Well before 1974, but by that year the moral decline should have been
obvious to anyone with spiritual eyes and ears.


Thanks again for your wonderful contribution.


Blessings,


Carlos

Great work Carlos! This may be your best and most important work to date. I’m just
astounded at all you have uncovered, there is obviously so much more out there than
meets the eye if people were just willing to look. I was especially touched by the mercy
God showed Butterfly McQueen by sending a Christian to her aid in the final moments
of her life. Makes me wonder, if when America burns, who the ―James Pride‖ will be
who stands at her side? I think the typology lends itself to the possiblity that someone
will still be here to offer her comfort and hope in her last hours. Something to think
about …… God bless you brother, thank you so much for blessing us all with your very
fine work! Cindy

Thanks so much for your kind words, Cindy! Yes, God is gracious isn’t He? Indeed, as I
mentioned in another reply, I keep seeing that situation in my mind, the young Boy
Scout telling the dying Ms. McQueen all about the love of Jesus. I find it positive and
hopeful that Ms. McQueen kept saying ―thank-you, thank-you‖ over and over again. It is
so important that we all ―get the word out‖ to Americans, for this day is fast
approaching, and each individual must turn to Jesus Christ and repent, hopefully not
waiting until the fires are already upon the nation. If the people could only see that the
bad times this nation is experiencing now represent judgments, then they would be
aware that indeed God is in control and that repentance is absolutely essential. Sadly,
most Americans do not accept that these events are judgments, however, so we must
continue to sound the alarm! Yes, Cindy, what you said about ―the James Pride‖ does
give us all something to think about, and I will certainly pray over this matter. As I’ve
mentioned in other posts, America has been blessed abundantly by God, from sea to
shining sea. Thank-you again, sister, and blessings to you,


Carlos

My reference to the date in 1974 was that it came up for me that it may be that the Defeo
tragedy may have been a response from the spiritual realm to being exposed by Caro or
it was a time when more was being released into the world in the way of darkness as a as
a result of spiritual depravity.

Thanks for this, Jeff. This is quite possible; I was also considering the situation along
these lines, and thought I’d check to see specifically when the Caro book was published,
but to no avail. It does seem to me that, overall, the time around 1974 was one of
spiritual darkness and definitely ―change‖. I was just entering my teen years and I do
remember those days quite vividly. I don’t doubt at all that it was a time of darkness
―release‖; excellent point you have made, brother.


Blessings,


Carlos

Carlos,
I looked for the date that the book was released as well and couldn’t find one however
odds are good that it may have released before in that the Defeo tragedy took place on
the thirteenth of the eleventh month.
After going over the account of Robert Moses’s ―accomplishments‖ especially around the
accommodation’s made for the automobile, I’m very convinced that the enemies plan for
America is one that created a dependency on oil. The resulting innovation’s have created
an ―independence‖ never seen before in human history and there is a link from oil to
Pharmekia in that a lot of ―medicines‖ contain petroleum. I believe that this may have
something to do with the ―mark of the Beast‖.
From the time of the deep water Horizon ―accident‖ until the present there have been
many things ―released‖ into the world from the inner parts of the earth. Just like the
effects that certain medications have on people what about these elements and
compounds that have been released what they could be doing to those outside of Gods
protective plan? I believe that we could be witnessing what the enemy intends to do,
wreak havoc and destroy Gods created image.
There are many things in what you have written about that will take sometime in
uncovering. The big question is, what is in this that is a clue to Gods people in what they
are to be doing besides the obvious? I have started pulling away from a lot of things and
one of them is seeking to change my dependency from needing the world and it’s
system, to being more dependent on Christ. ―The American Dream‖ of financial
―Independence‖ has turned into a hellish nightmare that leaves people willing to do
anything for it.

Hi Jeff;


Yes, almost certainly the book would have been released prior to the horrific murders, so
what you have said previously really fits.


You have made some excellent connections to oil, and America’s dependence. I have to
say that I totally agree with you; that must have been a part of the enemy’s plan alright.


What you are personally doing, Jeff, is a great example of what believers should be
doing, that is, pulling away from dependence on things of the world and relying on our
Savior, Jesus Christ. Now, in terms of more specifically what we are to do at this time? I
pray over this question daily, and I am led to write an article on this very topic.


You are correct, the American dream is history. The American empire is falling, rapidly.
We see ―Babylon is fallen, is fallen‖ in both Isaiah 21:9 and Revelation (14:8 and 18:2).
These verses have multiple layers of meaning, really amazing. But, the main meaning is,
I believe, that there is a spiritual fall followed by a complete physical fall (judgment).


Thanks for sharing these great connections you have made.


Blessings,


Carlos
