Book of Revelation, Babylon the Great, New Weird Order Update

 Like a bad nightmare, a worldwide system that the biblical Book of Revelation refers to as Mystery Babylon the Great is arising that will exercise power and dominion over every tribe, tongue and nation on earth (Rev 13:8; 18:3). This system is mysterious because it is hiding in plain sight, and is visible only to those who have eyes to see and ears to hear this warning message (Rev 13:9). Even though we can only see through the biblical prophetic lens darkly, the general outline or blueprint of end time events is still apparent (1 Cor 13:12). After all, didn’t Yeshua promise his disciples that the Holy Spirit would reveal to them (and us too) things to come (John 16:13)? 

Do you have eyes to see? The Bible declares that YHVH’s elect saints are to be children of the light, of the day, and not of the darkness or night, especially as the coming of Yeshua draws near (1 Thess 5:1–8). Based on this, we can be assured that our Father in heaven will give his saints unique insights and revelation pertaining to end time events. Not only that, Scripture instruct us not to be ignorant of Satan’s devices (2 Cor 2:11). As the old adgae goes, to be forewarned is to be forearmed.

Since the mid-1970s, I have been keeping my thumb on the pulse of this slowly emerging, end times global Antichrist system. Both my Bible-believing father and late grandfather also kept a keen eye on world events going back to 1950s and the 1940s respectively, and they passed this interest on to me. Based on this background and what I see in the Book of Revelation, here is my best understanding to date of what I see coming toward us with regard to the Babylon the Great global Antichrist system. 

The Book of Revelation draws a distinct line between those who will acquiesce to this Satanic system versus those who will resist it. The line in the proverbial sand is marked by blood: those who will shed blood countless millions to impose this system on the world (for them, the ends justify the means) versus those who are under the blood of Yeshua the Messiah and who will be victorious over evil. Those whose names have been written in “Book of Life of the Lamb slain from the foundations of the world” will neither submit to nor worship this evil beast system. Most people will though, for they will be forced to go along to get along in order to survive (Rev 13:8).

The Bible tells us that the vast majority of the earth’s population will worship (i.e., literally fawn like a dog or crouch before, prostrate oneself; Rev 13:8) the spiritual powers behind this evil Antichrist system for three-and-one-half years (Rev 13:5).  Both the books of Daniel and Revelations liken this global system to an evil, ugly, power-hungry, Elohim-hating, fearsome demonic monster beast. The so-called global elites or leftist globalists refer to this system as the New World Order (I refer to it as “the New Weird Order”), the Great Reset, the Liberal World Order, the Fourth Turning, or the Fourth Industrial Revolution to name a few.

This emerging global system that will tyrannically control the earth’s masses will be a merger of political, economic and religious powers through technological means (read Revelation chapter 13). Futurists and science fiction writers have been predicting this for nearly 100 years in books like Huxley’s Brave New World and Orwell’s 1984. This system will be an oligarchic technocracy.

How will the global “elite” power brokers and controllers impose this system on earth’s populace? These demoniacs will impose their (dystopian) vision of a so-called utopian New World Order system over earth’s population primarily not by military force, but rather by technological control. Limited military or police actions may occur to enforce their agendas and edicts upon rogue entities, but all-out war or global conflicts is unlikely except as necessary to impose this system upon the world’s masses. The Book of Revelation does not seem to indicate a large, global massive military conflict. Why not? This is because global financiers and power brokers have invested trillions of dollars much energy and resources into developing a worldwide system and with a vast, interconnected infrastructure by which they hope to engineer the world’s population into compliance with their world-domination objectives and then to manage people from that point forward. 

Many people are certain that we are heading toward a global system that follows a Marxist-Leninist model. Again, the Book of Revelation does not indicate this to be the case. Rather the global elites are endeavoring to morph the world’s economic system into a blend of capitalism and communism—a system similar to what we now see occurring in the Peoples Republic of China. The end goal is a neo-feudalist system where the oligarchic international capitalists are conspiring with the world’s political powers to create a serf class of compliant workers for their factories and fields. This is exactly what the Book of Revelation predicted would occur nearly 2,000 years ago (Revelation chapters 13 and 18). The overlord elites will keep people dumbed down, drugged up, entertained and unarmed, thus making resistance by the masses unlikely, difficult and virtually impossible. The Book of Revelation clearly and tersely states this,

The light of a lamp shall not shine in you anymore, and the voice of bridegroom and bride shall not be heard in you anymore. For your merchants [or tradesmen] were the great men [or lords] of the earth, for by your sorcery [Greek: pharmakeia] all the nations were deceived [or seduced]. (Rev 18:23)

When I say that the Babylon the Great New World Order will control people primarily by technology rather than by military force, this will include such technologies such as artificial intelligent or AI (including Generative Pre-trained Transformer 4 or GPT-4 or open AI), robotics, transhumanism, neurolinks, genetic engineering, the internet of all things, biometric tracking of people and things, a centralized global digital currency, the worldwide web, geoengineering, and the big pharmaceutical companies (or big pharma) drugging the masses for the purpose of pacifying people into submissive compliance via mind and body altering drugs and forced vaccinations. Through technology and educational indoctrination, the masses will be programmed into accepting, the socio-religious ideals of ESG (i.e., Environmental Social and Governmental), social credit scores, climate control to prevent climate change, green energy programs, carbon credits, travel passports that permit or disallow people from traveling along with other educational and propagandistic brainwashing schemes resulting in the social engineering of the masses into compliance to a centralized system of State control. This will be sold to the unsuspecting public under the guise of so-called convenience, comfort, security and ease of living. Of course, along the way, the leftist globalist will attempt to disarm the masses, thus making resistance to their oppressive and tyrannical system nearly impossible. Already the globalists are attempting to pawn off onto the unsuspecting masses the so-called utopian concept that, “You will own nothing and love it.” Thus, most people will unwittingly be lured into a State orchestrated “utopia” with the siren song of convenience, a worry and carefree life punctuated with luxury, leisure and hedonistic pleasures (e.g., sexual libertinism along with mind-altering drugs that are easily accessible) where the all-powerful State (as is if to play God) will take care of you from cradle to grave, even as the shackles of oppression clamp down little-by-little around the wrists, legs, mouths, thoughts and lives of the unwitting sheeple-serfs.

From the beginning of recorded time, haven’t there always been power-hungry leaders seeking world domination, you might rightly ask? The answer is yes, of course. So how is this different from the past? Simply this. Now these modern megalomaniacs have the technological means that never before existed to impose this system upon the world’s masses and then to control everyone and everything everywhere.

Visionaries and futurists from the past century correctly predicted the occurrence of this global, world-ruling technocracy. Aldous Huxley’s, for example, in his 1931 book Brave New World outlines a stratified dystopian society with four socio-economic hierarchies or castes of people from the elites at the top to the serfs at the bottom. In the fourth century BC, Aristotle’s Republic envisioned a similar system in ancient Greece. The world’s population will likely be ordered along similar lines in the near future.

A serious problem exists for the globalist overlords however: Not everyone will go along with this system. There have always been and there will again be  libertarian-minded people who will resist and rebel against systems of tyranny and oppression. The Book of Revelation predicts this as does Huxley in the Brave New World. In the Bible, many of these people will flee into the wilderness (Rev 12:14), away from a society where the global economic system requires one to take a bio-metric mark on one’s body in order to buy and sell—in other words, to survive (Rev 13:16–17).  In Huxley’s book, these rebels find themselves sequestered in a place called the Savage Reservation, which, interestingly, is located in Texas.

Does the Bible predict artificial intelligence or AI? Yes. The “image [Greek eikon] of the beast”  in Revelation chapter 13 (verses 14–15) is John’s first century way of explaining AI-driven robotic machines that influence and control people through a global technocratic system of governance that is a satanically inspired, blasphemous, God-hating system.  The Greek word behind image is the word eikon meaning “a likeness, that is, (literally) statue, profile, or (figuratively) representation, resemblance”. This is clearly a mechanical device-based system. Everyone who does not worship the image of the beast will be killed (Rev 13:15). The majority of the world’s population will be lured into doing so through deception along with lying signs and wonders (Rev 13:13–14 cp. 2 Thess 2:9).

As already mentioned, eventually the globalists will impose upon all people everywhere a system which the Bible refers to as “the mark of the beast”, which unless people take, they will not be able to buy or sell. Imagine trying to survive if you have no medium of exchange except for bartering. How do you work? Pay your rent or mortgage? Pay your utility bills? Travel? Buy food and hold a job? In short, do anything?

Likely this mark of the beast system will involve a global digital currency that permits only those who have “good” social credit scores as well as possess “the mark”, which is one’s permission from the State or Big Brother to buy or sell anything. Those who do not possess this mark will be excluded. It seems that this system will be in place for three-and-one-half years (Rev 13:5). This will be a time of intense warfare against the saints who refuse to take “the mark” and submit to the lordship of the Luciferian State. The persecution against the saints will be intense. In fact, the Bible reveals that many will be overcome or killed (Rev 13:7).

The Babylon the Great system, though universal in scope involving all nations and kings, will not be totally cohesive. Not all people will acquiesce to this global, tyrannical system. The prophet Daniel in his vision of the great statue of world empires from the time of ancient Babylon to the time when Yeshua returns (see Daniel chapter two), refers to the ten toes of this statue as composed of iron and clay. Many people have speculated what the ten toes and the iron and clay represent prophetically—not a cohesive combination. To me, the ten toes seem to suggest the world being subdivided into ten regions where national boundaries and individual sovereign nations have been erased replaced. Iron seems to suggest metallic machines or robots and computers, which suggests the concept of an intelligent machine-run technocracy. Clay, on the other hand, seems to suggest the human element, or those humans who will resist that technocracy. These are the more libertarian minded folks, as well the peoples of the Book (i.e., the Bible) including the Jews and Christians, who refuse to go along. These people will be marginalized, bullied and terrorized into submission or killed if they refuse to submit. The common enemy of Antichrist oppression will force the Bible-believing people to come together into their own cooperative socio-economic alignments or communities due to their common enemy (a common enemy makes strange bedfellows, as the saying goes).

The globalists have had the longterm goal of centralizing people into cities and urban areas where the State can more easily control them. For example, in the US over the past 40 to 50 years, there has been a push to socially engineer  or stack and pack people into densely populated urban areas. True, city life offers conveniences that rural life cannot. In town, life is convenient for people, since they have immediate access to goods and services both public and private. Thus this facilitates government entities in their efforts to control people what they do, where they go, and what they think and say. Urban people are more dependent on the social and governmental systems for their survival, whereas rural or more agrarian-minded people who live off the land are more self-reliant, individualistic, freedom-loving and rely less on big government or the State colloquially referred to as Big Brother for their basic needs.

The Book of Revelation tells us that when these things happen, many saints will flee the tyranny of urban centers and will seek refuge in the wilderness for three-and-one-half years where YHVH will protect them from the ravages of Satan (Rev 12:14), who has been cast to the earth to torment men. At that time, YHVH promises to supernaturally care for his saints as he did the children of Israel in the wilderness (Rev 12:14). At the same time, many saints will not go into the wilderness for a variety of reasons (Rev 12:17). Perhaps moving to another more rural area is too difficult due to age or health issues. Or perhaps it is YHVH’s will to keep some people in the cities to be salt and light and to continue preaching the gospel there. Revelation tells us that those who do not go into the wilderness are still his people because they keep the commandments and have faith in Yeshua (Rev 12:17), but it will not be an easy ride for them. Those people, however, who takes the mark of the beast will suffer divine judgment, if not eternal damnation (Rev 14:9–11; 20:4).

We keep referring to “the mark of the beast” (Rev 13:16–17). But just what is this biblical mark of the beast? Is this merely a metaphorical concept, or is it a literal thing? Is it a physical or spiritual demarcation or both? The Bible reveals that the mark of the beast on the hand and forehead is definitely a sign of one’s allegiance to or worship of the beast through one’s thoughts and actions. But the Bible also declares that the mark is a literal physical one in the human (Rev 13:16). We ignore the clear Truth of Scripture when we spiritualize or allegorize away what the Word of Elohim clearly states. The mark of the beast is both a physical and spiritual demarcation that involves allegiance and worship (Rev 13:16 cp. vv. 4, 12, 15).

When will these things occur? No one knows. But the wise disciples of Yeshua the Messiah who are children of the light will start preparing yourself physically and most importantly spiritually. 

But concerning the times and the seasons, brethren, you have no need that I should write to you. For you yourselves know perfectly that the day of the Lord so comes as a thief in the night. For when they say, “Peace and safety!” then sudden destruction comes upon them, as labor pains upon a pregnant woman. And they shall not escape. But you, brethren, are not in darkness, so that this Day should overtake you as a thief. You are all sons of light and sons of the day. We are not of the night nor of darkness. Therefore let us not sleep, as others do, but let us watch and be sober. For those who sleep, sleep at night, and those who get drunk are drunk at night. But let us who are of the day be sober, putting on the breastplate of faith and love, and as a helmet the hope of salvation. (1 Thess 5:1–8)

Do we have one year, five years or fifty years left before all of these things happen? Only YHVH knows. We must live each day as if it were our last. One thing is certain, YHVH admonishes, almost pleads, with his people to come out of Babylon to escape his judgments that will fall upon this Antichrist system that is contending with King Yeshua the Messiah to be the ruler of the world. There is no time stamp on this warning to come out of Babylon, so now is the time!

And I heard another voice from heaven saying, “Come out of her, my people, lest you share in her sins, and lest you receive of her plagues. (Rev 18:4)

In light of all of that we have discussed above, what should you do? How do you prepare? Where do you go or not go? First, you must do what you should have been doing all along: surrender your life to the lordship YHVH-Yeshua Elohim and lay literally everything in your life at the foot of the cross and the altar before his throne in heaven and start walking in total faith.  

Second, once you have surrendered all to him, now is the time to start listening to Elohim, who will give each of us instructions on what to do. Be assured, we will not hear his voice until we have totally surrendered all areas of our lives to him including where we live, our jobs, all of our human associations and familial relationships, or else our own soulish inclinations (that is, our mind, will and emotions) will get in the way of hearing from him. 

Now is the time to start walking in faith, not fear. When we do this, we will hear clearly from YHVH Elohim.

For Elohim has not given us a spirit of fear, but of power and of love and of a sound mind. (2 Tim 1:7)

Trust in YHVH with all your heart, and lean not on your own understanding; in all your ways acknowledge Him, and He shall direct your paths. Do not be wise in your own eyes; fear YHVH and depart from evil. (Prov 3:5–6)

  1. I don’t want myself, or anyone else to have to live through the tribulation, and would prefer it be otherwise. But, as Brad Scott used to say, “Can we all agree that God is smarter than we are?” Therefore, if that’s what is a prerequisite for the long-awaited return of the Messiah, so be it. But, it is like watching a B-grade movie script playing out, appalling as it is, before our very eyes.

  2. Thank you for new insights about the end-times. I believe everything about biblical prophesies have multi-layered meanings & may mean both. Each have pieces of the puzzle when put together form the bigger picture. As in the start slavery in Egypt in the end slavery in Babylon. I pray that we have now communities (also our own families with us) that we can join when that time comes. Because Torah is lived-out in a community. Amein.

  3. It is my understanding that Shinar mentioned in Zech. 5 is modern day Iran. the vision of the flying roll (cylinder) containing an evil FIRE not WOMAN, with a lead lid (to contain radiation?) is the dimensions of a modern day SCUD missile (according to an ex-marine and Vietnam vet)
    All I know is we are one day closer than we were yesterday. I don’t know what tomorrow holds, but I do know Who holds tomorrow. 🙂

  4. A circle ends at its beginning. The last 2 chapters of Revelation will join with the first 2 chapters of Genesis.
    ‘Genesis 2:24: this is why a man (Yeshua) is to leave his father and mother (Elohim) and stick with his wife (the church), and they are to be one flesh (spirit).’
    The circle is complete!
    Shalom, John
