How the mighty have fallen

What sets itself up against you? What is mighty in your sight today? What overshadows you, a looming darkness which is bringing fear to you? What tempts you away from your devotion to God? What is in the way of your discipleship path? What disturbs your mind, robs your soul of peace and gives you heartache? What boasts over you? What parades like an invincible foe?

It has a limited shelf-life!

A second angel followed and said, “‘Fallen! Fallen is Babylon the Great,’which made all the nations drink the maddening wine of her adulteries.” (Revelation 14 v 8)

Whatever is against you is defeated not by anything you can do or any human power at all. It is defeated by God alone.

Babylon is no more! Actually it had died generations previously but since those days every enemy state that set itself up against God was referred to as Babylon. In John’s day, Rome was Babylon.

So this is the declaration of any nation, government, tribe and people that comes against God and His people, they will fall!

The hedonistic materialistic nations of the West will fall. The false religions of the East will fall. The adulteries of the idolatry and worship of the political and religious powers that mimic the true God will be no more.

No power that comes against you will survive.

You live longer than those things that try to ruin you.
