"September 11" and the Fall of Babylon
After the terrorist attacks
on September 11, 2001, many Christians and scholars have recognized the event
related to the prophecy of the Fall of Babylon in the Book of Revelation,
but that's only half the story.
11" is not the full course of the Fall of Babylon prophesied in Chapter
17 and 18 of the Book of Revelation, but only the warning of the Fall of
Babylon in Revelation 14:8.
In Chapter 14 of the Book
of Revelation, John saw three angels flying in the midair.
The First Angel "had
the Eternal Gospel to proclaim to
those who live on the earth - to every nation, tribe, language and
people. He said in a loud voice, 'Fear God
and give him glory, because the hour of his judgment has come. Worship
him who made the heavens, the earth, the sea and the springs of water.'”
The Second Angel gave
the warning, "Fallen! Fallen is
Babylon the Great, which made all the nations drink the
maddening wine of her adulteries." (Revelation 14:8)
The Third Angel
followed them and said in a loud voice: "If
anyone worships the beast and his image and receives his mark on the
forehead or on the hand, he, too, will drink of the wine of God’s
fury, which has been poured full strength into the cup of his wrath.
He will be tormented with burning sulfur in the presence of the holy
angels and of the Lamb.”
This indicated that the
warning of the Fall of Babylon would come at the same time the New
Revelation of the Word of God, the "Eternal Gospel" for
"every nation, tribe, language and people" (Revelation
14:6), will be revealed.
"September 11" was not the Full fulfillment of the prophecy of the
"Fall of Babylon", it did fulfill some prophecies
regarding the Fall of Babylon:
of the earth...see the smoke of her burning, they will weep and
mourn over her." (Revelation 18:9)
her torment, they will stand far off and cry: 'Woe! Woe, O great city,
O Babylon, city of power! In one hour your doom has come!'"
merchants of the earth will weep and mourn over her because no one
buys their cargos any more." (Revelation 18:11)
captain, and all who travel by ship, the sailors, and all who earn
their living from the sea, will stand far off. When they see the
smoke of her burning, they will exclaim, ‘Was there ever a city
like this great city?’ They will throw dust on their heads, and
with weeping and mourning cry out: 'Woe! Woe, O great city, where
all who had ships on the sea became rich through her wealth!'”
These were the exact
responses from the world when people saw this disaster broadcasted on TV
or looked at it from far off the site. In a little
over one hour after the terrorist attack, the twin towers collapsed with
huge smoke rising to the sky, and all the leaders in the world saw it
instantly through satellite broadcasting, just like what was prophesied in
the Bible nineteen hundred years ago.
There is also a
prophecy of the timing of the disaster in the Bible that was fulfilled by
the "September 11". September 11, 2001, was
originally set by the United Nations as the International
Day of Peace. Before the disaster
happened in that morning, the Secretary-General of the United Nations
issued a statement on the occasion of the International Day of Peace.
Unfortunately, this message for peace never mentioned the blessing of God,
not even once. How could people expect peace
without the blessing of God?
Apostle Paul once warned
about the timing of the disaster in his letter to the Thessalonians, “Now,
brothers, about times and dates we do not need to write to you, for you
know very well that the day of the Lord will come like a thief in the
night. While people are saying, ‘Peace and safety,’ destruction
will come on them suddenly, as labor pains on a pregnant woman, and
they will not escape.” (1 Thessalonians 5:1-3) That prophecy was
fulfilled by the "Sept 11" on this International Day of Peace
when people were saying "Peace and Safety".
I wish the "September
11" was the last disaster for the City of New York, but,
unfortunately, it was only the warning of the "Fall of Babylon"
given by the second angel in Chapter 14 of the Book of Revelation. After
the warning of the angels in Revelation 14, there would be the "Seven
Bowls of God's Wrath" in Revelation 16. Among these "Seven Bowls
of God's Wrath", the Sixth Bowl of God's Wrath is about the War in
Iraq and the rising of ISIS, which has been fulfilled right now. Then the
Final full fulfillment of the prophecy of the "Fall of Babylon"
will come, which will be much greater than the "September 11".

No one knows how
this disaster will be fulfilled in the near future, except the Father in
Heaven, but there is a way to revert the prophecy and avoid this disaster
That's why the Son of Man is here to give the warning on the Full
Fulfillment of the "Fall of Babylon" prophesied in Revelation 17
and 18, and hopefully, people can listen to the Word of God and avoid such catastrophe
happening in the USA.
