Earlier today (Saturday) the Holy Spirit gave me the page number 938 which turned up some of Isaiah 13 and 14 – The two chapters where Isaiah speaks a word against Babylon. Later in the afternoon I was led to look the chapters up in the Greek Septuagint version translated into English by Lancelot Brenton in 1851. The Lord’s Apostles often quoted from the Greek Septuagint version in their writings.
Verse 6 in chapter 14 caught my eye since we are in this position
Compare Isaiah 14:6 in the King James Version then the Brenton’s Septuagint version
KJV Isaiah 14:4 That thou shalt take up this proverb against the king of Babylon, and say, How hath the oppressor ceased! the golden city ceased!
BRN 4 – And thou shalt take up this lamentation against the king of Babylon, How has the extortioner ceased, and the taskmaster ceased!
KJV Isa 14:5 The Lord hath broken the staff of the wicked, and the sceptre of the rulers.
BRN 5 The Lord has broken the yoke of sinners, the yoke of princes.
KJV Isaiah 14:6 He who smote the people in wrath with a continual stroke, he that /ruled the nations/ in anger,/ is persecuted, and none hindereth.
Brenton’s 14:16 Having smitten a nation in wrath, with an incurable plague, /smiting a nation /with a wrathful/ plague/ , which spared them not, he rested in quiet.
It may appear at a casual reading(at least it did to me) that he KJV translators ascribed to the King of Babylon the action in verse 6 “He who smote the people in wrath with a continual stroke”….
But the Brenton’s English translation of the Greek Old TESTAMENT ascribes to GOD the ‘smiting a nation in wrath, with an incurable plague, smiting a nation with a wrathful plague which spared not…’
I also see now that the KJV is saying the same thing.
God smites Babylon with an incurable plague..smiting a nation(a people group) with a wrathful plague–and it or He spared NOT!! It caused the King of Babylon to REST–which means DIE!!
This is in line with God’s many warnings to us His children to
“COME OUT OF HER LEST YOU SHARE IN HER SINS AND RECEIVE OF HER PLAGUES!”
Here is the IMMINENT JUDGEMENT GOD IS GOING TO VISIT UPON THOSE WHO ARE RULING OVER THE NATIONS WITH EXTORTION AND OPPRESSION.
Rev 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.
5 For her sins have reached unto heaven, and God hath remembered her iniquities.
6 Reward her even as she rewarded you, and double unto her double according to her works: in the cup which she hath filled fill to her double.
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.
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.
9 And the kings of the earth, who have committed fornication and lived deliciously with her, shall bewail her, and lament for her, when they shall see the smoke of her burning,
10 Standing afar off for the fear of her torment, saying, Alas, alas that great city Babylon, that mighty city! for in one hour is thy judgment come.
11…..for no man buyeth their merchandise any more:
14 And the fruits that thy soul lusted after are departed from thee, and all things which were dainty and goodly are departed from thee, and thou shalt find them no more at all.
17 For in one hour so great riches is come to nought
18 And cried when they saw the smoke of her burning,
19…for in one hour is she made desolate.
20 Rejoice over her, thou heaven, and ye holy apostles and prophets; for God hath avenged you on her.
The last verse I quoted above is the same as in Isaiah 14:7 The Greek has “All the earth cries aloud with joy: ”
21. Thus with violence shall that great city Babylon be thrown down, and shall be found no more at all.
- ….for thy merchants were the great men of the earth; for by thy sorceries (pharmakeia) were all nations deceived.
The Great men of the earth rule mystery Babylon – these are same great men in Isa 14:9-12
- Hell from beneath is provoked to meet thee: all the great ones that have ruled over the earth have risen up together against thee, they that have raised up from their thrones all the kings of the nations.
- All shall answer and say to thee, Thou also hast been taken, even as we; and thou art numbered amongst us.
- Thy glory has come down to Hades, and thy great mirth: under thee they shall spread corruption, and the worm shall be thy covering.
- How has Lucifer, that rose in the morning, fallen from heaven! He that sent orders to all the nations is crushed to the earth.
I am excited by this..am I allowed to be? Too bad, I am! For those ones –those so called Elite–Great Men that rule the earth and who REFUSE TO LET THE PEOPLE GO are about to be deposed. They are about to see their KINGDOM THROWN DOWN WITH VIOLENCE and GOD HIMSELF SHALL DO IT.
THE PHARMAKEIA /SORCERY VACCINES SHALL NOT SAVE THEM.
IN ONE DAY this great city that rules over the nations shall be burned with fire. All the captives shall go free. And the tables hall be turned as Isaiah 14: 2b says “…and they that took them captives shall become captives to them; and they that had lordship over them shall be under their rule. ” Brenton’s
Whatever the fire is that God judges Babylon with it shall destroy her and all those wicked ones in league with her profiting off the suffering and bondage of the common people.
God shall send a incurable plague and a wrathful plague upon these great men and their leader Lucifer.
We know of some of them but God knows all of them and HE IS NOT PLEASED.
God’s Fire alludes to His Law with which He judges all sin. These one’s have overstepped and abused their authority. Their time has expired to rule the nations and NOW IT IS TIME FOR THE SAINTS OF GOD TO RULE AND REIGN putting all enemies under Jesus feet.
God has heard our cry and shall bring us into a BROAD PLACE–A WIDE PLACE OF LIBERTY.
In ONE DAY this shall happen to the leaders of Mystery Babylon.
REPENT!! COME OUT OF HER NOW LEST YOU SHARE IN THE WRATHFUL PLAGUE GOD VISITS UPON THIS GREAT CITY.
You cannot serve God and Mammon!! Denounce Mammon the false god of money….Worship the Son of God Jesus Christ.
They have planned to do what Haman tried to do to the Jews written in Esther 3:13
But God gave the victory and turned the tables on the enemy–so shall He do it again.
Rev 18:6 Render to her just as she rendered to you, and repay her double according to her works; in the cup which she has mixed, mix double for her.
What you have done to others shall be done back to you Great Men. It is coming. Repent NOW!! Cry to Jesus for mercy and stop what you are doing to the nations.
The Tenth Plague: Death of the Firstborn OF THE CHIEF MEN WHO RULE THE WORLD
29 And it came to pass at midnight that the Lord struck all the firstborn in the land of Egypt, from the firstborn of Pharaoh who sat on his throne to the firstborn of the captive who was in the dungeon, and all the firstborn of livestock. 30 So Pharaoh rose in the night, he, all his servants, and all the Egyptians; and there was a great cry in Egypt, for there was not a house where there was not one dead.
The Exodus – THE CAPTIVES SET FREE !!
31 Then (Pharaoh)he called for Moses and Aaron by night, and said, “Rise, go out from among my people, both you and the children of Israel. And go, serve the Lord as you have said. 32 Also take your flocks and your herds, as you have said, and be gone; and bless me also.”
In the prophetic word in the last post the Lord said
“Those proud ones seeking to enslave and keep you enslaved shall find that they themselves are taken captive. For her time has come! That city that ruled over the nations –the time when I shall bring her low and shake out of her all those who were her slaves. I am coming to set things right and to lift up those who are fallen down. I am a just God and what you have done is not pleasing in My sight. I am not going to tolerate such abuse of power any longer for your time to rule is finished and the captive exile hastens that he should not go down into the Pit. I have redeemed him I have restored his fortunes to him I will loose his chains and set Him free so that he may come out to serve me in this day and in this hour. Do not get in the way of what I am doing and do not try to stop it or hinder it for your destruction is at hand. You have said to yourself, in your heart, that “I am unstoppable” but I shall stop you just watch Me do it.”
The Babylonians will be forced to give us a place –a broad place. They have stolen Land and material things–all she be repaid. The have over taxed the nations for hundreds of years…all will be repaid. They have killed and maimed — In the resurrection they shall have to serve those they hurt till all is repaid. They shall fund the building of the kingdom of God just as Egypt gave wealth untold to the Israelites when God delivered them with a strong hand.
The captors shall become the captives.
And the all the earth shall shout for JOY!!
Isaiah 14 tells us God rouses the Medes to take down Babylon…who do not regard silver of Gold.
No one who worships silver and gold and has his mind on money will be used by God to take down Babylon.
Oh that God would cleanse us with His fire that the love of money would not be found in us.
