Babylon and the Beast

I implore you to take a moment to read Revelation 17 and 18. To summarize, these passages talk about the great prostitute Babylon who rides upon a scarlet beast. The great prostitute Babylon is guilty of all sorts of wickedness including deceiving the nations with her sorceries (STRONG’S 5331- PHARMAKEIA). She rides upon the Beast and sits upon many waters. She is that great City which rules the kingdoms of the world. When one rides an animal, one tends to think they are in control. They are controlling the animal. Sometimes though that animal can turn against them and that is exactly what happens to the great prostitute.

God uses the Beast upon which she is riding to destroy her.

It is becoming more and more apparent, to me anyway, that what we are calling the deep state is actually the great prostitute Babylon. Does it not check off all of the characteristics of Babylon? So then, that leaves us with the beast. The beast of course is who we would call the Antichrist. The man of perdition.

Who have we heard of in recent years, even up to the present, who is releasing information and claiming they are going to bring down the deep state/cabal/NWO globalists? I’ll give you a CLUE…it rhymes with CUE.

And what do the CUE followers constantly remind us? They are always saying to “trust the plan”.

For God has put a plan into their minds, a plan that will carry out his purposes. They will agree to give their authority to the scarlet beast, and so the words of God will be fulfilled.
Revelation 17:17 NLT

And I could not help but notice that is Revelation 17:17…..CUE being the 17th letter of the English alphabet. Is that a coincidence? Wouldn’t it be just like God in His infinite knowledge to arrange such a thing?

So what is my point? The CUE movement is gaining traction and popularity. They no longer deal in conspiracy theories by tin foil hat wearing hermits. There’s a good possibility it is a real thing and they will accomplish their plan. I have heard only a handful of people know who is really behind CUE, but I have my suspicions and I do believe there is one man who is designated to call the shots. Someone who is right now hidden in plain sight and is being protected and preserved for the appropriate time. Side note: no, I do not think it is Trump, nor do I think it is Obama or any of the other usual suspects.

My main point for this post is to issue a warning. It may be very tempting to get on board with CUE, but if I am correct, that is certainly not the road you want to go down. We certainly don’t cheer for Babylon either. If they succeed in their mission to bring down the cabal, it is easy to see how so many people will be deceived. This movement will be heralded as the saviors of humanity and the world, as they who brought down the evil Satanists, human traffickers and baby killers. We are heirs with Christ and servants of the Most High God. Our assignment is to testify to the Truth and shine the Light of the Gospel while we are still here.

Revelation chapter 18 talks about the destruction of Babylon and God says something very interesting:

Then I heard another voice calling from heaven, “Come away from her, my people. Do not take part in her sins, or you will be punished with her.
Revelation 18:4 NLT


What if we are in the final moments before Babylon falls and the Beast system takes control? HOW MUCH CLOSER IS THE RAPTURE OF THE BRIDE OF CHRIST?

Night is approaching folks, so look up and be ready! Keep plenty of oil in your lamps!

Jesus is LORD and “Breaking Prophetic News – Watch October / November 2021”

There is so much happening in the world right now, and so much going on in the news, that it can be easy to lose our center of focus. As Christians we must remember that no matter what happens that Jesus is Lord. So many people claim Him as Savior, and of course He is that and so many other things, but He is also Lord. He is our Lord, He is our Commander, in this spiritual war. But even more than that, He is the Victor! We must remember that while we are in the throes of battle, the war has already been won. Jesus is King of kings and Lord of lords and one day every knee shall bow before Him.

Psalm 91 is a favorite passage of mine and I often pray it over my home. I think we American Christians run to God for protection, and of course He is our mighty fortress and our Protector and Provider, but every now and then I have to remind myself that this life is not my own. I am a servant of the Most High as well as His child. Our time here on Earth is winding down, so let that encourage us to work while it is still day. There are still so many people out there who are deceived and lost. Let us continue to shine our light, which is the Light of Christ. Let us keep our focus ever upon Him, and await the day that we hear, “well done, good and faithful servant.”

Drying Euphrates Threatens Disaster in Syria



“It’s as if we were in the desert,” said the 50-year-old farmer, standing on what last year was the Euphrates riverbed.

“We’re thinking of leaving because there’s no water left to drink or irrigate the trees.”

Aid groups and engineers are warning of a looming humanitarian disaster in northeast Syria, where waning river flow is compounding woes after a decade of war.

They say plummeting water levels at hydroelectric dams since January are threatening water and power cutoffs for up to five million Syrians, in the middle of a coronavirus pandemic and economic crisis.

As drought grips the Mediterranean region, many in the Kurdish-held area are accusing neighbor and archfoe Turkey of weaponizing water by tightening the tap upstream, though a Turkish source denied this.

Outside the village of Rumayleh where Khamees lives, black irrigation hoses lay in dusty coils after the river receded so far it became too expensive to operate the water pumps.

Instead, much closer to the water’s edge, Khamees and neighbors were busy planting corn and beans in the soil just last year submerged under the current.

The father of 12 said he had not seen the river so far away from the village in decades.

“The women have to walk seven kilometers just to get a bucket of water for their children to drink,” he said.

Reputed to have once flown through the biblical Garden of Eden, the Euphrates runs for almost 2,800 kilometers across Turkey, Syria, and Iraq.

In times of rain, it gushes into northern Syria through the Turkish border and flows diagonally across the war-torn country towards Iraq.

Along its way, it irrigates swathes of land in Syria’s breadbasket and runs through three hydroelectric dams that provide power and drinking water to millions.

But over the past eight months, the river has contracted to a sliver, sucking precious water out of reservoirs and increasing the risk of dam turbines grinding to a halt.

At the Tishrin Dam, the first into which the river falls inside Syria, director Hammoud al-Hadiyyeen described an “alarming” drop in water levels not seen since the dam’s completion in 1999.

“It’s a humanitarian catastrophe,” he said.

Since January, the water level has plummeted by five meters, and now hovers just dozens of centimeters above “dead level” when turbines are supposed to completely stop producing electricity.

Across northeast Syria, already power generation has fallen by 70 percent since last year, the head of the energy authority Welat Darwish says.

Two out of three of all potable water stations along the river are pumping less water or have stopped working, humanitarian groups say.

Almost 90 percent of the Euphrates flow comes from Turkey, the United Nations says.

To ensure Syria’s fair share, Turkey in 1987 agreed to allow an annual average of 500 cubic meters per second of water across its border.

But that has dropped to as low as 200 in recent months, engineers claim.

Inside Syria, the Euphrates flows mostly along territory controlled by semi-autonomous Kurdish authorities, whose US-backed fighters have over the years wrested its dams and towns from ISIS.

Turkey however regards those Kurdish fighters as linked to its outlawed Kurdistan Workers’ Party (PKK), and has grabbed land from them during Syria’s war.

Syria’s Kurds have accused Ankara of holding back more water than necessary in its dams, and Damascus in June urged Turkey to increase the flow immediately.

But a Turkish diplomatic source told AFP Turkey had “never reduced the amount of water it releases from its transboundary rivers for political or other purposes”.

“Our region is facing one of the worst drought periods due to climate change,” and rainfall in southern Turkey was “the lowest in the last 30 years”, this source said.

Analyst Nicholas Heras said Turkey did hold leverage over Syria and Iraq with the huge Ataturk Dam just 80 kilometers from the Syrian border, but it was debatable whether Ankara wanted to use it.

That would mean “international complications for Ankara, both with the United States and Russia”, a key Damascus ally across the table in Syria peace talks.

“The easier, and more frequently utilized, water weapon that Ankara uses is the Alouk plant” that it seized from the Kurds in 2019, Heras said.

Freshwater supply from the station on another river has been disrupted at least 24 times since 2019, affecting 460,000 people, the United Nations says.

But Syria analyst Fabrice Balanche said the drought did serve Ankara’s long-term goal of “asphyxiating northeast Syria economically”.

“In periods of drought, Turkey helps itself and leaves the rest for the Kurds, in defiance and full knowledge of the consequences,” he said.

Wim Zwijnenburg, of the PAX peace organization, said Turkey was struggling to provide enough water for “megalomanic” agricultural projects set up in the 1990s, a challenge now complicated by climate change.

“The big picture is drought is coming,” he said.

“We already see a rapid decline in healthy vegetation growth on satellite analysis” in both Syria and Turkey.
