New York City: MYSTERY, BABYLON THE GREAT, THE MOTHER OF HARLOTS
June 9, 2020 4:17 PM
Dream of June 7 2020:
I was with two Archers (men of renown & great warriors). I think one was black and the other white. I was with these two men only briefly and I don’t know why. I quickly journeyed away from them and on to the city:
Relaying instructions and obeying them at the same time, I obeyed and went to the city and found that I was also following a pipeline to the city, it went straight to the military base next to it. The base was white, like the building-size tents used in Kuwait and similar desert bases. The right of me was like the shoreline I think, so this pipeline appeared to run along the coast. The pipeline was white in appearance, and seemed to be under ground or under water, I could not tell which because it was like I saw it through the transparent surface.
The residential & commercial (civilian) part of the city was on my left across a huge clearing, rectangular in shape, like the parks in Manhattan except this park was bare and empty with not even a tree in sight. The civilian cityscape was a bit dingy compared to the military part. Maybe a gray color and no character or beauty at all.
I paused when I saw both these city sectors from a distance; I stood in awe as it was revealed to me that this was that great city of Revelation, the Mother of Harlots: New York City. This part of the dream was an unforgettable pause of sheer wonder and heaven’s revealing to me. I knew it was definitive and irrefutable. I knew the answer now without a shadow of doubt, Babylon is NYC. I recited the iconic descriptive phrases of Revelation 17 (vss 5 and 18) as I beheld the city.
I crossed the clearing to my left, into the edge of the city, where I entered what appeared to be tall residential buildings. Two police officers were near me, and they seemed like they’re concerned about me and watching me but they know that I am not a threat. Some other people are with me too but I don’t catch their identity although one seemed to be a prophetic disciple like myself. I kept relaying instructions that I received from heaven; it’s like I was telling my other self what to do, it was odd. Every instruction to me was also told to someone else, from me, and then I would proceed to execute the order. This is true of directions to as to how to reach city and my task I now received there:
It was shown to me that I must immediately take this goat and sheep, which needed to be acquired nearby like in the clearing or next to it, and take them to the the public for delivery of this message. I don’t know if there were more instructions attached to the sheep and goat. They were dramatic props I think, as if for a prophetic act to be demonstrated in the public eye. Before acquiring them however, I paused to eat a simple slice of bread with peanut butter and honey, not even a full sandwich. This appeared to take place in a hallway of an apartment building. The cop was watching me but not in a menacing way. He was just perplexed. I knew I had a job to do.
End of the dream.
1 And there came one of the seven angels which had the seven vials, and talked with me, saying unto me, Come hither; I will shew unto thee the judgment of the great whore that sitteth upon many waters:
2 With whom the kings of the earth have committed fornication, and the inhabitants of the earth have been made drunk with the wine of her fornication.
3 So he carried me away in the spirit into the wilderness: and I saw a woman sit upon a scarlet coloured beast, full of names of blasphemy, having seven heads and ten horns.
4 And the woman was arrayed in purple and scarlet colour, and decked with gold and precious stones and pearls, having a golden cup in her hand full of abominations and filthiness of her fornication:
5 And upon her forehead was a name written, MYSTERY, BABYLON THE GREAT, THE MOTHER OF HARLOTS AND ABOMINATIONS OF THE EARTH.
6 And I saw the woman drunken with the blood of the saints, and with the blood of the martyrs of Jesus: and when I saw her, I wondered with great admiration.
7 And the angel said unto me, Wherefore didst thou marvel? I will tell thee the mystery of the woman, and of the beast that carrieth her, which hath the seven heads and ten horns.
8 The beast that thou sawest was, and is not; and shall ascend out of the bottomless pit, and go into perdition: and they that dwell on the earth shall wonder, whose names were not written in the book of life from the foundation of the world, when they behold the beast that was, and is not, and yet is.
9 And here is the mind which hath wisdom. The seven heads are seven mountains, on which the woman sitteth.
10 And there are seven kings: five are fallen, and one is, and the other is not yet come; and when he cometh, he must continue a short space.
11 And the beast that was, and is not, even he is the eighth, and is of the seven, and goeth into perdition.
12 And the ten horns which thou sawest are ten kings, which have received no kingdom as yet; but receive power as kings one hour with the beast.
13 These have one mind, and shall give their power and strength unto the beast.
14 These shall make war with the Lamb, and the Lamb shall overcome them: for he is Lord of lords, and King of kings: and they that are with him are called, and chosen, and faithful.
15 And he saith unto me, The waters which thou sawest, where the whore sitteth, are peoples, and multitudes, and nations, and tongues.
16 And the ten horns which thou sawest upon the beast, these shall hate the whore, and shall make her desolate and naked, and shall eat her flesh, and burn her with fire.
17 For God hath put in their hearts to fulfil his will, and to agree, and give their kingdom unto the beast, until the words of God shall be fulfilled.
18 And the woman which thou sawest is that great city, which reigneth over the kings of the earth.
1 And after these things I saw another angel come down from heaven, having great power; and the earth was lightened with his glory.
2 And he cried mightily with a strong voice, saying, Babylon the great is fallen, is fallen, and is become the habitation of devils, and the hold of every foul spirit, and a cage of every unclean and hateful bird.
3 For all nations have drunk of the wine of the wrath of her fornication, and the kings of the earth have committed fornication with her, and the merchants of the earth are waxed rich through the abundance of her delicacies.
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 And the merchants of the earth shall weep and mourn over her; for no man buyeth their merchandise any more:
12 The merchandise of gold, and silver, and precious stones, and of pearls, and fine linen, and purple, and silk, and scarlet, and all thyine wood, and all manner vessels of ivory, and all manner vessels of most precious wood, and of brass, and iron, and marble,
13 And cinnamon, and odours, and ointments, and frankincense, and wine, and oil, and fine flour, and wheat, and beasts, and sheep, and horses, and chariots, and slaves, and souls of men.
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.
15 The merchants of these things, which were made rich by her, shall stand afar off for the fear of her torment, weeping and wailing,
16 And saying, Alas, alas, that great city, that was clothed in fine linen, and purple, and scarlet, and decked with gold, and precious stones, and pearls!
17 For in one hour so great riches is come to nought. And every shipmaster, and all the company in ships, and sailors, and as many as trade by sea, stood afar off,
18 And cried when they saw the smoke of her burning, saying, What city is like unto this great city!
19 And they cast dust on their heads, and cried, weeping and wailing, saying, Alas, alas, that great city, wherein were made rich all that had ships in the sea by reason of her costliness! 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.
21 And a mighty angel took up a stone like a great millstone, and cast it into the sea, saying, Thus with violence shall that great city Babylon be thrown down, and shall be found no more at all.
22 And the voice of harpers, and musicians, and of pipers, and trumpeters, shall be heard no more at all in thee; and no craftsman, of whatsoever craft he be, shall be found any more in thee; and the sound of a millstone shall be heard no more at all in thee;
23 And the light of a candle shall shine no more at all in thee; and the voice of the bridegroom and of the bride shall be heard no more at all in thee: for thy merchants were the great men of the earth; for by thy sorceries were all nations deceived.
24 And in her was found the blood of prophets, and of saints, and of all that were slain upon the earth.
Archers: My impression is that these are the US Military. The different races show the success Babylon has had in unifying drastically different people to fight along side each other. Bows are long range weapons as the US of course reaches the entire globe.
Pipeline: The USA is heavily invested in the pipeline business of the Middle East as a prime example of a strategic economy. The pipeline runs to the military because that is America’s priority for power. The pipeline is white perhaps due to its legitimacy or pretext for noble causes.
Military Base: The USA is most accomplished in its military power and glory. This base was remarkably white because it is advanced, new, and well maintained; the US military receives the bulk of America’s priority attention and financing. White in this sense represents ideal quality control more than anything.
The City Park: This recreational part of the city was bleak and empty. Perhaps this indicates a gloom of neglect and disrepair that will rapidly spread across the nation and pervade in the near future. I crossed this park to reach the city so it may indicate a season of low quality of life or culture.
The Apartments: If the Son of Man had no place to lay His head, apartments are a huge luxury for disciples of Jesus. Our stay in this world is a brief home away from home before we move on and leave town.
Police: The officers watched me because secular statism leads to nervousness about losing control of people’s beliefs. The unidentified extra people are witnesses to what God is communicating.
Goat and Sheep: These are indicative of the judgment described in Matthew 25. Clearly the motif recurring in my dream is to raise up the crying of the saints for repentance, lest anyone be found a goat rather than a sheep at the return of Jesus (25:29-46):
29 For unto every one that hath shall be given, and he shall have abundance: but from him that hath not shall be taken away even that which he hath.
30 And cast ye the unprofitable servant into outer darkness: there shall be weeping and gnashing of teeth.
31 When the Son of man shall come in his glory, and all the holy angels with him, then shall he sit upon the throne of his glory:
32 And before him shall be gathered all nations: and he shall separate them one from another, as a shepherd divideth his sheep from the goats:
33 And he shall set the sheep on his right hand, but the goats on the left.
34 Then shall the King say unto them on his right hand, Come, ye blessed of my Father, inherit the kingdom prepared for you from the foundation of the world:
35 For I was an hungred, and ye gave me meat: I was thirsty, and ye gave me drink: I was a stranger, and ye took me in:
36 Naked, and ye clothed me: I was sick, and ye visited me: I was in prison, and ye came unto me.
37 Then shall the righteous answer him, saying, Lord, when saw we thee an hungred, and fed thee? or thirsty, and gave thee drink?
38 When saw we thee a stranger, and took thee in? or naked, and clothed thee?
39 Or when saw we thee sick, or in prison, and came unto thee?
40 And the King shall answer and say unto them, Verily I say unto you, Inasmuch as ye have done it unto one of the least of these my brethren, ye have done it unto me.
41 Then shall he say also unto them on the left hand, Depart from me, ye cursed, into everlasting fire, prepared for the devil and his angels:
42 For I was an hungred, and ye gave me no meat: I was thirsty, and ye gave me no drink:
43 I was a stranger, and ye took me not in: naked, and ye clothed me not: sick, and in prison, and ye visited me not.
44 Then shall they also answer him, saying, Lord, when saw we thee an hungred, or athirst, or a stranger, or naked, or sick, or in prison, and did not minister unto thee?
45 Then shall he answer them, saying, Verily I say unto you, Inasmuch as ye did it not to one of the least of these, ye did it not to me.
46 And these shall go away into everlasting punishment: but the righteous into life eternal.
The message of these passages is clear: we must be diligent in repentance and obedience, fully purged of idolatry and sin when the Lord returns, or we will be counted among the goats.
God bless you.
