We live in the ruins of an ancient civilization that once covered the whole earth. The people of this civilization populated the world, and spread their religion and world view to all the nations.
The ruins of their temples remain as places of brooding mystery for us today. The Pyramids, Stonehenge, New Grange, Angror Wat, Teotihuacan, Chitzen Itza, the Nazca Lines, and many other places remind us of the power this ancient civilization once exercised.
We still use their calendar. Our holidays were their holidays. Theirs was the root of our languages, and we still use the alphabet they developed to express those languages. Their achievements were many, but their civilization suffered from a tragic flaw that brought about its downfall.
It was in the midst of the persecution of His Church that God decreed the downfall of this evil civilization. The message from God was delivered to John, the last surviving disciple of Christ, in a vision. And in John’s vision, God gave this evil civilization the name that has resonated down through the ages.
God called it Babylon.
This book will take you on a spiritual journey back in time to understand the false religion of Babylon. Then you will follow Babylon through the nations to understand the spiritual strongholds set in place to dominate the nations and peoples throughout history.
At the same time you will see how God has set His redemptive plan in motion through the ages to set His people free.
Finally, you will learn how to overcome the strongholds of Babylon in your own life so you can complete your own spiritual journey.
“For our struggle is not against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the authorities, against the powers of this dark world, and against the spiritual forces of evil in the heavenly realms” Ephesians 6:12
“The weapons we fight with are not the weapons of the world. On the contrary, they have divine power to demolish strongholds.” 2 Corinthians 10:4
It is our hope that you will use your knowledge and freedom from the doomed Babylonian system to pray for those still trapped and lead many out of Babylon.
