Twenty years ago God said go out and tell the people to “fall in love with Him.” -Pastor Jim Bakker
God’s name for any wicked city is Babylon. -Pastor Jim Bakker
There are a few people who store food, but it’s not enough to take care of everybody. Everybody who is capable ought to take care of themselves and not just leech off everybody else. -Pastor Jim Bakker
Revelation 18:4-8 NCV Then I heard another voice from heaven saying: “Come out of that city, my people, so that you will not share in her sins, so that you will not receive the disasters that will come to her. Her sins have piled up as high as the sky, and God has not forgotten the wrongs she has done. Give that city the same as she gave to others. Pay her back twice as much as she did. Prepare wine for her that is twice as strong as the wine she prepared for others. She gave herself much glory and rich living. Give her that much suffering and sadness. She says to herself, ‘I am a queen sitting on my throne. I am not a widow; I will never be sad.’ So these disasters will come t o her in one day: death, and crying, and great hunger, and she will be destroyed by fire, because the Lord God who judges her is powerful.”
Revelation 18:9-10 NCV The kings of the earth who sinned sexually with her and shared her wealth will see the smoke from her burning. Then they will cry and be sad because of her death. They will be afraid of her suffering and stand far away and say, “Terrible! How terrible for you, great city, powerful city of Babylon, because your punishment has come in one hour!”
Revelation 18:11-20 NCV And the merchants of the earth will cry and be sad about her, because now there is no one to buy their cargoes— cargoes of gold, silver, jewels, pearls, fine linen, purple cloth, silk, red cloth; all kinds of citron wood and all kinds of things made from ivory, expensive wood, bronze, iron, and marble; cinnamon, spice, incense, myrrh, frankincense, wine, olive oil, fine flour, wheat, cattle, sheep, horses, carriages, slaves, and human lives. The merchants will say, “Babylon, the good things you wanted are gone from you. All your rich and fancy things have disappeared. You will never have them again.” The merchants who became rich from selling to her will be afraid of her suffering and will stand far away. They will cry and be sad and say: “Terrible! How terrible for the great city! She was dressed in fine linen, purple and red cloth, and she was shining with gold, precious jewels, and pearls! All these riches have been destroyed in one hour!” Every sea captain, every passenger, the sailors, and all those who earn their living from the sea stood far away from Babylon. As they saw the smoke from her burning, they cried out loudly, “There was never a city like this great city!” And they threw dust on their heads and cried out, weeping and being sad. They said: “Terrible! How terrible for the great city! All the people who had ships on the sea became rich because of her wealth! But she has been destroyed in one hour! Be happy because of this, heaven! Be happy, God’s holy people and apostles and prophets! God has punished her because of what she did to you.”
Isaiah 5:20 KJV How terrible it will be for people who call good things bad and bad things good, who think darkness is light and light is darkness, who think sour is sweet and sweet is sour.
Revelation 18:21-25 NCV Then a powerful angel picked up a large stone, like one used for grinding grain, and threw it into the sea. He said: “In the same way, the great city of Babylon will be thrown down, and it will never be found again. The music of people playing harps and other instruments, flutes, and trumpets, will never be heard in you again. No workman doing any job will ever be found in you again. The sound of grinding grain will never be heard in you again. The light of a lamp will never shine in you again, and the voices of a bridegroom and bride will never be heard in you again. Your merchants were the world’s great people, and all the nations were tricked by your magic.You are guilty of the death of the prophets and God’s holy people and all who have been killed on earth.”
Revelation 19:1 NCV After this vision and announcement I heard what sounded like a great many people in heaven saying: “Hallelujah! Salvation, glory, and power belong to our God,
Psalm 11:6 KJV Upon the wicked he shall rain snares, fire and brimstone, and an horrible tempest: this shall be the portion of their cup.
Matthew 24:7 NCV For nation shall rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom: and there shall be famines, and pestilences, and earthquakes, in divers places.
