The nation of Babylon has been both a literal nation and a symbol of rebellion. God often warns of His judgement and the destruction of Babylon and all her inhabitants.
The noise of a multitude in the mountains,
Like that of many people!
A tumultuous noise of the kingdoms of nations gathered together!
The Lord of hosts musters
The army for battle.
They come from a far country,
From the end of heaven—
The Lord and His weapons of indignation,
To destroy the whole land.
Wail, for the day of the Lord is at hand!
It will come as destruction from the Almighty.
Therefore all hands will be limp,
Every man’s heart will melt,
And they will be afraid.
Pangs and sorrows will take hold of them;
They will be in pain as a woman in childbirth;
They will be amazed at one another;
Their faces will be like flames.
PRAY FOR YOUR NATION NOT TO SUFFER THE SAME FATE AS BABYLON.
