“And he cried mightily with a loud voice, saying, “Babylon the great is fallen, is fallen,
and has become a dwelling place of demons, a prison for every foul spirit,
and a cage for every unclean and hated bird!
For all the nations have drunk of the wine of the wrath of her fornication,
the kings of the earth have committed fornication with her,
and the merchants of the earth have become rich through the abundance of her luxury.”

Persistent rejection of Jesus Christ brings global tribulation. “The word of the Lord came again to me, saying: “Son of man, when a land sins against Me by persistent unfaithfulness, I will stretch out My hand against it; I will cut off its supply of bread, send famine on it, and cut off man and beast from it.” Ezekiel 14:12-13 Today, the world has been persistently unfaithful to God, meaning they have decided against living for Jesus Christ. In fact, the nations of the world are focusing their goal on a global economy in harmony with the masses around the world who are demanding “democracy” and “personal rights.” Even the Israelis are protesting against the government of the State of Israel in their demand to return to “democracy.” The formation of the global government of the beast is already here with us, and they are hostile to God, Jesus Christ, and the Holy Spirit. The global government of the mark of the beast is here, meaning the judgment of God is soon to come. The bread, people, and farm animals will be totally cut off from the nations as the global economy collapses and devastates communities everywhere. Revelation 18 describes that devastation.
Only a personal relationship with Jesus will save. “Even if these three men, Noah, Daniel, and Job, were in it, they would deliver only themselves by their righteousness,” says the Lord God.” Ezekiel 14:14 The world is so hard-hearted to the gospel of Jesus Christ that even during the global tribulation they will refuse to turn to Jesus for the remission of sin. Even if Noah, Daniel, and Job were in this world with us, their righteousness would not be able to save anyone. Their righteousness would only save themselves. Each one of us are saved according to our own relationship with Jesus Christ. Noah was a prophet during the very last days before the earth was destroyed by the flood. Daniel was a prophet while in captivity and relates to the global government of the mark of the beast. And Job is a person who suffered horribly in the flesh as well as losing all of his family, possessions, and money. But at the end, God restored it all back to him. Those three men of God symbolize the last days before the coming of Jesus Christ. It is a time when the whole world is in captivity to the thing that has power over physiology and can form thoughts, emotions, feelings, and behaviors. It is the government of the mark of the beast. If people do not live by the mark of the beast, then they suffer in their health, lose social contacts, lose money and possessions. When Jesus Christ returns, our faithfulness to God will be rewarded abundantly within the eternal New Jerusalem.
Vicious animal attacks are in the world, and only Jesus saves. “If I cause wild beasts to pass through the land, and they empty it, and make it so desolate that no man may pass through because of the beasts,” Ezekiel 14:15 Today, there are many attacks by animals that are killing people, and that is a common warning in the Bible. This verse refers to the power that is given to Death and Hades , ” And power was given to them over a fourth of the earth, to kill with sword, with hunger, with death, and by the beasts of the earth.” Revelation 6:8 Today, people no longer have the cute and fluffy pets, they have the type that eats “fluffy” for breakfast. People are constantly killed by pet dogs, and the streets are filled with homeless dogs, cats, lost pet snakes, and the list goes on.
Humane societies around the nation are overburdened and are in crisis trying to house all of the animals that they are called on to take off the streets. This is not to mention fish, birds, etc. “…even though these three men were in it, as I live,” says the Lord God, “they would deliver neither sons nor daughters; only they would be delivered, and the land would be desolate.” Ezekiel 14:16 No one is going to be immune from the vicious attacks. It happens during the last days before Jesus comes backs, and its already seen today. It is happening while we are in captivity under the government of the mark of the beast. People are suffering. Each one of us must come to Jesus Christ during these perilous days, we cannot save others. Jesus is our eternal Salvation.
Person to person violence is in the world, and only Jesus can save. “Or if I bring a sword on that land, and say, ‘Sword, go through the land,’ and I cut off man and beast from it,” Ezekiel 14:17 Today, there is a lot of violence from one person to the next which happens everywhere. It happens at fast food restaurants, shopping centers, grocery stores, schools, parks, in homes, etc. As written here, speaking about the fiery red horse, “And it was granted to the one who sat on it to take peace from the earth, and that people should kill one another; and there was given to him a great sword.” Ezekiel 14:3-4 Where are all the righteous people who live for Jesus Christ? “…even though these three men were in it, as I live,” says the Lord God, “they would deliver neither sons nor daughters, but only they themselves would be delivered.” Ezekiel 14:18 The world will be filled with violence in the days just before Jesus comes back, and it happens while being in captivity to the global government of the mark of the beast. Even today people are suffering from the violence that affects their life every day. It is for each one of us to come to Jesus Christ, we are not able to save children, parents, friends, spouses, co-workers, etc.
Pandemics and blood-borne diseases are in the world, and only Jesus saves. “Or if I send a pestilence into that land and pour out My fury on it in blood, and cut off from it man and beast,” Ezekiel 14:19 Pandemics are in the world, and they are only going to get worse with deadly blood-borne diseases. There is no salvation for the world, there is only Salvation for the righteous people who live for God through Jesus Christ, “…even though Noah, Daniel, and Job were in it, as I live,” says the Lord God, “they would deliver neither son nor daughter; they would deliver only themselves by their righteousness.” Ezekiel 14:20 In the last days before the coming of Jesus Christ the deadly diseases are going to be horrible. People are going to be suffering terribly while in captivity to those who govern the world through the mark of the beast. We will not be able to bring salvation to others, Salvation is on a person-to-person basis which comes through Jesus Christ.
There is fellowship in the New Jerusalem for the faithful few. “For thus says the Lord God: “How much more it shall be when I send My four severe judgments on Jerusalem—the sword and famine and wild beasts and pestilence—to cut off man and beast from it?” Ezekiel 14:21 Jerusalem will suffer the effects of the sword, famine, wild beasts, and diseases. Today, Jerusalem is a contested city filled with conflict between the Israelis and Palestinian Muslims. Likewise, the global tribulation will be in every city around the world, involving violence, hunger, attacks by wild beasts, pandemics, and deadly blood-borne diseases. All of this happens while in captivity to the thing that has power to form thoughts, emotions, feelings, and behaviors. It is the global government of the mark of the beast. All of their churchy and humanitarian sounding words are leading this world to disaster. “Yet behold, there shall be left in it a remnant who will be brought out, both sons and daughters; surely they will come out to you, and you will see their ways and their doings. Then you will be comforted concerning the disaster that I have brought upon Jerusalem, all that I have brought upon it.” Ezekiel 14:22 There will be a few saved who hold to the testimony of Jesus Christ. After the earthly disaster, we will be gathered in Heaven in the New Jerusalem where there will be singing and comfort.
God is right for bringing judgment on those who persecute compassionate and loving people. “And they will comfort you, when you see their ways and their doings; and you shall know that I have done nothing without cause that I have done in it,” says the Lord God.” Ezekiel 14: 23 The people who govern by the mark of the beast are cruel to those who live by the Spirit of Jesus Christ. When we get to Heaven and see all of the loving and compassionate people who endured the suffering, we will be glad for the judgment brought on the world.
“….to you who do not hold to her teaching and have not learned Satan’s so-called deep secrets,“
‘I will not impose any other burden on you, except to hold on to what you have until I come.’”
“I am coming soon. Hold on to what you have, so that no one will take your crown.”
Revelation 2:24-25, 3:1
