PresentsJeremiah Chapter 50
Revelation 2:17 He that hath an ear, let him hear what the Spirit saith unto the churches; To him that overcometh will I give to eat of the hidden manna, and will give him a white stone, and in the stone a new name written, which no man knoweth saving he that receiveth it.
But when the Comforter is come, whom I will send unto you from the Father, even the Spirit of truth, which proceedeth from the Father, he shall testify of me:
 Howbeit when he, the Spirit of truth, is come, he will guide you into all truth: for he shall not speak of himself; but whatsoever he shall hear, that shall he speak: and he will shew you things to come.  He shall glorify me: for he shall receive of mine, and shall shew it unto you.

Without the leading by the Holy Spirit, there is no understanding of the truths, for all the truth of the Scriptures are revealed to us by God's Spirit.Now here is our revised study of
Jeremiah Chapter 50
"Babylon, Israel and Judah."
It is interesting that the fiftieth prophecy of Jeremiah, falls right in chapter fifty, and the word "fifty" means "Pentecost", or in the Greek "five tens". In the Massorah, that is the way that the writers or prophets worked their writings. They fixed God's Word whereby Man could not change it. The Massorah is the footnotes that were written as a fence around the original text, to protect it's meanings from those that would misuse those sacred passages for their own profit. The word Massorah in the Hebrew tongue, means to pass through from one mind to another without anything being changed by any means.
It will be on Pentecost day that the sons and daughters will speak out against the false christ, when they are delivered up, as recorded in Mark 13:11. The proof and the evidence that the Holy Spirit is present at that time is that every person will hear what is spoken in the dialect of their own native tongue, all at the same time. There will be no need of an interpreter. This is documented in Acts 2:6, 7. So when they speak out, they will speak against the king of Babylon, the false-christ who is Satan, and that is what this fiftieth chapter is about. It is all part of Gods perfect plan.
Most of this prophecy has not come to pass yet, but is about to happen, and this makes it end time prophecy.
Jeremiah 50:1 "The Word of the Lord spake against Babylon and against the land of the Chaldeans by Jeremiah the prophet."
This is a prophecy against the land and against the king himself.
Jeremiah 50:2 "Declare ye among the nations, and publish, and set up a standard; publish, and conceal not: say, Babylon is taken, Bel is confounded, Merodach is broken in pieces; her idols are confounded, her images are broken in pieces."
What God is about to say, is that He is telling us to publish it throughout the land, and set this writing as a standard that all the people should be aware of. "Babylon" in the Hebrew tongue means "confusion, and "Bel" means that it is all mixed up. "Merodach" means "death", and we know that this verse is future because there is still much idol worship in this country, and around the world. We know that the standard bearer, and the standard is Christ Himself.
God is the author of peace and common sense that leads you away from confusion, death and idolatry. Remember that our heavenly Father is in control, and that this is looking forward to the time that confusion will be done away with. That time is in the Millennium age, when Christ's kingdom is here on earth.
Jeremiah 50:3 "For out of the north there cometh up a nation against her, which shall make her land desolate, and none shall dwell therein: they shall remove, they shall depart, both man and beast.' "
This verse has a two fold meaning, for on the side of the north of the Temple mountain is where Christ will build His Temple when he returns at the seventh trumpet. This side of the north is also where Satan, as the spurious mesiah, will also build his temple, when he declares himself to be God.
Isaiah 14:12 "How art thou fallen from heaven, O Lucifer, son of the morning! how art thou cut down to the ground, which didst weaken the nation!"
Isaiah 14:13 "For thou hast said in thine heart, `I will ascend into heaven, I will exalt my throne above the stars of God: I will sit also upon the mount of the congregation, in the sides of the north:"
The side of the north is on Mount Zion in Jerusalem. We know from Daniel 11:45 also, that this location is exactly where Satan the false messiah will set his Temple. "And he shall plant the tabernacles of his palace between the seas in the glorious holy mountain; yet he shall come to his end, and none shall help him.
II Thessalonians 2:3, 4 "Let no man deceive you by any means: for that day shall not come, except there come a falling away first, and that man of sin be revealed, the son of perdition [Satan the false-christ],"  "Who opposeth and exalteth himself above all that is called God, or that is worshipped; so that he as God sitteth in the Temple of God shewing himself that he is God." 
Satan is the "son of perdition" who comes first before the true Christ, Satan, Lucifer, the spurious messiah, the false-christ. the Antichrist; or what ever title you wish to call him, will build his temple on mount Zion on "the side of the north" prior to the coming of the true Christ
Historically we are looking to the land of the Medes and the Persians whom God used to correct the king of Babylon, who was Nebuchadnezzar. This was a type of what we will see happen in our generation.
Jeremiah 50:4 "In those days, and in that time, saith the Lord, the children of Israel shall come, they and the children of Judah together, going and weeping: they shall go, and seek the Lord their God:"
Note that both the "House of Israel", (the Christian nations), and the "House of Judah", the Jews (which includes both Judah and the Kenites at this time) are separate. We know that this is future, because these two nations or houses will not be joined until the Millennium age. These two people will come back together, because God has told us not only here, but in Ezekiel 37:15-23 all of the tribes of Israel will be a one again.
Ezekiel 37:22 "And I will make them one nation in the land upon the mountains of Israel: and one king shall be king to them all: and they shall be no more two nations, neither shall they be divided into two kingdoms any more at all:"
Not too many Christians are aware of the splitting of the Israel into two nations, and it is extremely important to understand this if you are trying to understand Bible prophecy. This is because God is dealing with each house separately in the end times, and you don't want to get mixed up between the two. While you try to understand the two houses, remember that the Kenites have mixed themselves into both houses to become troublemakers to them.
The "House of Israel" are the ten tribes that were scattered by Assyria about 722 B.C., and migrated through the Caucasus mountains, and in to Europe and the Americas. Today they are known as the "Caucasians" which records the event, and not a race of people, as most Christians believe.
The "House of Judah" are the two tribes of Judah, and Benjamin with a mixture of Levi. Also included in the "House of Judah" are the Kenites that are not of Abraham or Israel, but are the offspring of Cain. Cain was the child from the union between Satan [the serpent] in the garden of Eden, and Eve. Cain's offspring are called the Kenites, and this is documented in Strong's Hebrew dictionary, # 7014, and # 7017. It was the "House of Judah" that Jeremiah lived under, who King Nebuchadnezzar and the Babylonians took captive 135 years after the "House of Israel" was scattered by Assyria,.
So it is after the coming of Jesus Christ at the seventh trumpet, and after the four winds of the prior chapter has blown on Elam [the Kenite] and Esau [Russia] that this coming together will happen. Though the house of Judah has returned to Jerusalem, the house of Israel will not return to be joined with Judah until Christ is on the throne in Jerusalem. Without the full knowledge of who all makes up the House of Judah, Judah gets the full blame for what the Kenites (who are mixed with them), have done.
Jeremiah 50:5 "They shall ask the way to Zion with their faces thitherward, saying, `Come, and let us join ourselves to the Lord in a perpetual covenant that shall not be forgotten.'"
Zion again is where the Temple of Jesus Christ will be located in Jerusalem. That is where this covenant will take place, and that is where we of both houses will be joined to the Lord Jesus Christ, in the Millennium age. If you are still in your flesh body, you are not yet in the Millennium, so who ever now represents himself as Christ is a fake. You will not see Jesus' kingdom while in your flesh body. Flesh and blood can not enter the kingdom of God
Even though most Christians have forgotten who they are and the covenant that God made with our father Abraham, this covenant that God will make with us will be perpetual, and never forgotten by God or man. By listening to what is taught in Christian church houses today, most ministers have forgotten they are under a covenant, and desire to give the promises God gave to Abraham's descendants, over to Satan's kids, the Kenites. Even more pathetic is the fact that they don't even know they are of the "House of Israel". What they will find out is that they have always been under a perpetual covenant with our heavenly Father.
My fellow Christian, our Bible is full of promises that are directed to the "House of Israel", the people that received the covenant passed on to Isaac, and Jacob. Jacob's name was changed to Israel, and in Genesis 48:20, Jacob passed that blessed covenant on to the two sons of Joseph, the first born of Rachel. "And he blessed them that day, saying, "In thee shall Israel bless, saying, `God make these as Ephraim and as Manasseh:' " and he set Ehpraim before Manasseh."
If you are ignorant of who you are, you don't even know the promises that are direct to you and that you have the right to claim them. You have to ask for those promises and seek them in order to claim what is rightfully yours.
Jeremiah 50:6 "My People hath been lost sheep: their shepherds have caused them to go astray, they have turned them away on the mountains: they have gone from mountain to hill, they have forgotten their restingplace."
These lost sheep are of the "House of Israel" and are the Christian nations of today, and those calling themselves Caucasians. Before Jesus went to the cross, His instructions to His disciples were to Go only to the lost sheep of the "House of Israel", those people from the ten tribes that were scattered by the Assyrians.
The northern kingdom, "House of Israel", along with many from the southern kingdom, "House of Judah" were taken by Assyria, in 721 BC well over eight hundred thousand Israelite men 2 Samuel 24:1 - 9 and their families from ten different tribes (2 Kings 17, 18, and 19.) In 2 Kings 19:32-34 we learn that only Jerusalem was spared.Then, from the southern kingdom, "House of Judah" one hundred and thirty five years later, in 586 B.C,, Nebuchadnezzar of Babylon carried more than one half million Israelite men 2 Samuel 24:1 - 9 and their families from the other two tribes, of Benjamin and Judah (the Jews), away to Babylon. 2 Kings 25:1 - 21.
(All total approximately 1,300,000 men plus their wives and children were carried away)
Live Link to- "Do you
know who you really are?"
Are you a Israelite?
Be thoughtful before you answer.
(Maybe you only think you're a Gentile!)
Live Link to- "Israel's Lost Tribes"
Matthew 10:5, 6 "These twelve Jesus sent
forth, and commanded them, saying, Go not into the way of the Gentiles, and into
any city of the Samaritans enter ye not: But go rather to the lost sheep of
the house of Israel." 
We know from the book of Hosea that God divorced Israel, and the only way to rejoin to them was by death. When Jesus walked the earth in his ministry, that ministry was directly to the house of Israel, who are not Gentiles. Jesus states this in Matthew 15:24; "But He answered and said, "I am not sent but unto the lost sheep of the house of Israel." After Christ death, then that salvation was open to the lost sheep of the house of Israel as well as all Gentiles that repented in Jesus name and believed on His name.
How did the house of Israel go so far from the truth? Jeremiah is saying that "their shepherds have caused them to go astray." It is the fault of the ministers that our people are so ignorant and brain dead when it comes to the Word of God. We have gone from nation to nation, from religion to tradition, and have forgotten our true resting place which is in Jesus Christ. Our security can only be in our Heavenly Father, and in His Holy Spirit. Our spiritual leaders have forgotten the standards that God set for us from the beginning, and have turned to all sorts of funny-bunny stuff, in their playing church, and fairy-tale traditions. These so called Christian pastors and teachers are going to be held accountable for their church playing, and the scattering of God's flock. There is a resting place in our heavenly Father, and that is the only place to find peace of mind.
Jeremiah 50:7 "All that found them have devoured them: and their adversaries said, `We offend not, because they have sinned against the Lord, the Habitation of justice, even the Lord, the Hope of their fathers.' "
This scattered sheep of the "House of Israel" are devoured by every one that passes. The Kenites have them convinced that they are Gentiles, while they pass themselves off as God's chosen. How ridiculous, the very sons of Satan, through Cain being passed off as of God, and it worked because the Christian church world today is Biblically illiterate. They have no conscience of taking advantage of the flock, because the flock doesn't even know who they are.
"The habitation" in the Hebrew is pasture, that is where the flock is fed. We are reading of shepherds and sheep, and the pasture is where the shepherd feed their sheep. The house of Israel has sinned against the Lord, and even against God's Word, by their ignorance. The shepherds, being our Christian ministers, have set their flocks up to be taken by the False-christ due to their lack of understand and teaching of God's Word.
God promised us pasture, and we are to get our feeding through the chief shepherd, who is Christ.
Jeremiah 50:8 "Remove out of the midst of Babylon, and go forth out of the land of the Chaldeans, and be as the he goats before the flocks."
We are commanded to remove ourselves out of confusion, which is the meaning of the word "Babylon". God is not the author of confusion, and we are to come out of "Babylon". Separate yourself from the land and the people that promote this confusion.
The "he goats" is an idiom, which tells us that we are to be leaders. The he goat is placed before the flock of sheep to lead them to where the shepherd wants them to go. Though the sheep are too dumb to know the direction, the he goat does. The he goat leads that flock with authority. God is telling us to come out of confusion and lead our people with authority in the direction that God laid out in His Word.
It doesn't matter what your race or denomination is, if God has called you and allowed you to see the truth, be a leader of your people.
Many times people of one race will not listen to a teacher from another race, and that is why when you listen and understand God's Word, you are called to be the he goat to your people. When you speak with authority from God's Word, they will look to you as the leader.
Jeremiah 50:9 "For, lo, I will raise and cause to come up against Babylon an assembly of great nations from the north country: and they shall set themselves in array against her; from thence she shall be taken: their arrows shall be as of a mighty expert man; none shall return in vain."
Historically this assembly of great nations from the north country are the Medes and the Persians. However in the last part of this verse, we see it is a reference to the future. It is not the Medeo-Persian empire that overcomes the king of Babylon in the final days, but the expert arrow of truth that goes forth, and it comes from God's elect. It is the Elect of God that are delivered up before the king of Babylon, the false messiah, and deliverer their arrows of truth that will bring down the false messiah.
Jesus tells us that in Luke 21:15 that when you are delivered up and give your testimony, that even those that try to make money off of you, will be won over by what you say. "For I will give you a mouth and wisdom, which all your adversaries shall not be able to gainsay nor resist." It is the Holy Spirit that is perfect within us, and He makes what we say to be mighty and experts at that time. It happened on Pentecost day, and shall happen again when Satan is on his throne in Jerusalem.
Jeremiah 50:10 "And Chaldea shall be a spoil: all that spoil her shall be satisfied, saith the Lord."
Chaldea is Babylon, and in the final days it will be God's elect that shall be the spoilers of Satan, and his religious system. The elect of God will have their gospel armor on and in place to withstand the spiritual battle that Satan gives them.
Jeremiah 50:11 "Because ye were glad, because ye rejoiced, O ye destroyers of mine heritage, because ye are grown fat as the heifer at grass, and bellow as bulls;"
God's heritage is His people, and their chief destroyer is Satan. Because of your traditions, you have changed your heritage, you have changed everything around, and made confusion out of God's Word.
Jeremiah 50:12 "Your mother shall be sore confounded; she that bare you shall be ashamed: behold, the hindermost of the nations shall be a wilderness, a dry land, and a desert."
This is speaking to Babylon, and is your heritage if you are part of the religious Babylon of Revelation. Those that take part in that confusion will be part of that wilderness, and dry land. The desert is for the lack of truth of God's Word that shall exist at that time.
Jeremiah 50:13 "Because of the wrath of the Lord it shall not be inhabited, but it shall be wholly desolate: every one that goeth by Babylon shall be astonished, and his at all her plagues."
This is written in Revelation 18 where in that day no one will buy her goods, and "in that hour she is made desolate." The wealth that Satan bribed God's people to make them worship him is gone in the wink of an eye, and all the people will see Satan for who he is.
Jeremiah 50:14 "Put yourselves in array against Babylon round about: all ye that bend the bow, shoot at her, spare no arrows: for she hath sinned against the Lord."
When you know the truth, and the confusion of what is taught in our Christian churches today comes to the surface, we are to spare no spiritual arrows at hitting it where it hurts. Truth always does damage to a lie, and God's Word always brings a lie to the surface. We are to prophecy to those spiritually dry dead bones, and pray for the Spirit of God to bring spiritual life back to them. My fellow Christian, all of God's Word is important, including the minor prophets and the book of Revelation. A full understanding of His Word will bring them back to life.
Spiritual life returns when one can see that he has sinned, and that in Christ there is new life which is eternal.
Jeremiah 50:15 "Shout against her round about: she hath given her hand: her foundations are fallen, her walls thrown down: for it is the vengeance of the Lord: take vengeance upon her; as she hath done, do unto her."
When you start to shake the foundations of a person, you are getting to where it will make a real change and do some good. The truth will rip the walls of lies from their heart, and those walls will come down. This is that "MYSTERY, BABYLON THE GREAT, THE MOTHER OF HARLOTS AND ABOMINATIONS OF THE EARTH", the harlot that sits on her throne in the final hours of this earth age. Every person on the face of the earth that is not sealed with the truth of God's Word will be part of that mother of harlots, with Satan the instead-of-christ sitting on its throne.
Jeremiah 50:16 "Cut off the sower from Babylon, and him that handleth the sickle in the time of harvest: for fear of the oppressing sword they shall turn every one to his people, and they shall flee every one to his own land."
Don't let them plant words of deceit in your mind, and destroy the bag of seed from the tares. This is to say, watch out what you allow to enter your mind, and who's thoughts you entertain in your mind. Get rid of those things that lead you to the wrong harvest. My fellow Christian, the harvest that is taken by the sickle is taken out of season. It is cut down and burned. God is warning you to turn from those ways to the sword of the truth, to God's Word.
It is time to take the lead, and set your mind on what you know to be the truth. When you were in confusion, you searched every piece of writing and listened to every so called authority, However then you came out of confusion, so why would you continue to drift into Babylon for your direction, since you know where the only truth comes from. When Christ returns, there are going to be a lot of people ashamed for how they have allowed themselves to be deceived by Satan, the spurious messiah.
Jeremiah 50:17 "Israel is scattered sheep; the lions have driven him away: first the king of Assyria hath devoured him; and last this Nebuchadrezzar king of Babylon hath broken his bones."
It was the king of Assyria back in 722 B.C. that scattered the ten tribes making up the "House of Israel", and 135 years later king Nebuchadrezzar of Babylon destroyed and scattered the tribes of Judah and Benjamin from the "House of Judah". God is laying it out so there can be no misunderstanding.
This is a physical type of what is happening today, only today it is a spiritual scattering that is taking place. The king of Babylon of the end times will be given supernatural powers by God to deceive those that are looking to fly with the first Christ. His children, the Kenites are today controling the "Four Hidden Dynasties of the New World Order" and preparing you for that flight. In both Isaiah 14:25, and Ezekiel 31:3 the Assyrian is used as a type of Satan when he plays the role of the Antichrist, and Jeremiah is using it again.
Jeremiah 50:18 "Therefore thus saith the Lord of hosts, the God of Israel; "Behold, I will punish the king of Babylon and his land, as I have punished the king of Assyria."
This is going to happen, and we have the victory. The Antichrist will be defeated, and the confusion and deceit that now fill the nations of the earth will end. We will have the power through the Holy Spirit to overcome any problem that he sets in our path.
Jeremiah 50:19 "And I will bring Israel again to his habitation, and he shall feed on Carmel and Bashan, and his soul shall be satisfied upon mount Ephraim and Gilead."
This hasn't happened yet, but it will happen in Millennium age. "Carmel" in the Hebrew tongue means "plentiful and fruitful place", and "Bashan" is also in reference to a place of plenty. You will not be in your flesh bodies then but your soul within will find peace of mind. Upon those mountains refer to nations, the satisfaction is upon the nations of the house of Israel. "Ephraim" carries the name of Israel, from Genesis 48:20, and Gilead is the place of soothing balm. You will have the peace of mind in that day.
This has not been fulfilled in our day, because there is confusion and ignorance everywhere. However in our generation this will change, because we are living in the generation of the parable of the fig tree, where all prophecies shall be fulfilled, including the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ. It is then that this balm of Gilead shall soothe the hearts and souls of all Israel.
Jeremiah 50:20 "In those days, and in that time, saith the Lord, the iniquity of Israel shall be sought for, and there shall be none; and the sins of Judah, and they shall not be found: for I will pardon them whom I reserve."
We know that this has not come to pass, because the iniquity is abounding everywhere. When this happens there shall be no sinning, no rape, no stealing, no lying, no murder, and there won't even be a wagging tongue of gossip. "Those days, and in that time" starts at the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ. All souls will be in their spiritual bodies and living right here on earth, or as in the case of the angels who left their first estate, they will be held in a place for judgment during the Millennium age of Christ kingdom.
Notice that Israel and Judah are now joined here, and at this time God is saying that "I will pardon them whom I save [reserve]". It is God's will that all come to repentance, and when you do repent he will forgive the sin. When you repent of your sins God will never judge you for those sins, it is blotted out and gone for good. Don't get on a guilt trip. While we are still in this earth age, God gives a full pardon to those that repent of their sins and come to Him in Jesus name.
Jeremiah 50:21 "Go up against the land of Merathaim, even against it, and against the inhabitants of Pekod: waste and utterly destroy after them, saith the Lord, and do according to all that I have commanded thee."
"Merathaim" in the Hebrew means "double rebellion". "The inhabitants of Pekod", are the ones that do the visitation". God's elect, those with the seal of God in their mind are the inhabitants that will do the visitation. They will be the ones that go up against the place of double rebellion.
Jeremiah 50:22 "A sound of battle is in the land, and of great destruction."
Jeremiah 50:23 "How is the hammer of the whole earth cut asunder and broken! how is Babylon become a desolation among the nations!
The "hammer is Satan in his role of the spurious messiah, and Babylon is the one world system that he rules over. Both Satan and his system will become a desolation because of God's leaders and the Holy Spirit that fills them. At that time, after Christ's return, people, even so called Christian people, who go to church weekly, but are not motivated to study their Bible; therefore, not realizing Satan was the false-Christ, followed and worshiped him when he came to earth first, claiming he was the Christ, will finally come to their senses and see the love that our Heavenly Father has for them.
Jeremiah 50:24 "I have laid a snare for thee, and thou art also taken, O Babylon, and thou wast not aware: thou art found, and also caught, because thou hast striven against the Lord.
God's order to Satan is "touch not mine anointed" when Satan comes to earth, and the elect and the sealed of God of Revelation 7, and 9:4 are the snare that God has placed here to break down Babylon, or the confusion and deception that will cover the earth. God is warning Satan, don't touch them, and the reason they are caught in the snare is that they have touched one of God's anointed.
With the presence of the Holy Spirit speaking through them, the words of God's seal will cut deep into the deception of Satan's deceptions. The arrows from the Holy Spirit will shoot down the lies and deceptions that confronts the work of God.
Jeremiah 50:25 "The Lord hath opened His armoury, and hath brought forth the weapons of His indignation: for this is the work of the Lord God of hosts in the land of the Chaldeans."
God's armory is always open, but you have to go to that armory to check out the weapons that you will use. That armory is found in the writings of the seven vials, the seven trumpets and the seven seals in God's Word. Have you read them? Your weapons are your understanding of what is going to take place upon the arrival of the false-christ, so that you will not be deceived. Do you know what your sword is? Revelation 1:16 tell us that our sword is the words that came out of the mouth of our Lord Jesus Christ, and those words are found in His Word, your Bible.
Jeremiah 50:26 "Come against her from the utmost border, open her storehouses: cast her up as heaps, and destroy her utterly: let nothing of her be left."
God is saying to take those lies and false teaching, and traditions of Babylon [of confusion] and get rid of them. Utterly destroy them, and separate yourself completely from them. Get every thing of Satan, and those false teachings out of your life.
Jeremiah 50:27 "Slay all her bullocks; let them go down to the slaughter: woe unto them! for their day is come, the time of their visitation."
Destroy all of those bullocks, or things of idolatry that you have allowed to enter your life. God is saying Woe unto you if they are still with you on that day of visitation. That day is called the Lord's day and it is when the seventh trumpet sounds and Jesus Christ returns.
Jeremiah 50:28 "The voice of them that flee and escape out of the land of Babylon, to declare in Zion the vengeance of the Lord our God, the vengeance of His temple."
This has not happened yet, but the land of Babylon is the entire world system that Satan will be the head of, and it is well formed today. We call it the "New Word order". God is calling His people out of that confusion and bringing them back to common sense. It is called discipline. And a Christian that is not disciplined is not fit to serve, because it takes faith to have discipline. They must discipline themselves in God's Word, and apply that discipline to their lives. Undisciplined troops do not like to fight when the heat and pressure are on them, and that is why God requires all of His troops to be well disciplined in His Word.
In the army of God, the battles are all spiritual, and the battlefield is in the minds of people. It is fought with words and ideas, and most of the words come directly for the Word of God.
Satan is an authority in God's Word, only he uses those words to twist and confuse people. Is Satan using your minister. and what he teaches, or more importantly, what he doesn't teach to confuse you?
You can be physically handicapped, yet a real warrior in God's army. When the Holy Spirit speaks through the handicapped, it leaves an awesome message.
Jeremiah 50:29 "Call together the archers against Babylon: all ye that bend the bow, camp against it round about; let none thereof escape: recompense her according to her work; according to all that she hath done, do unto her: for she hath been proud against the Lord against the Holy One of Israel."
We are talking of old "Mystery Babylon of Revelation 18 here. In Revelation 18:6 "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."
This is referring to the cup of wrath that God will pour out upon this earth at the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ. This "great Mystery Babylon" includes all those that are deceived by the king of Babylon, the false-christ who is Satan. To this date Satan is the only one that has been sentenced to death, and that is why he is called the "son of perdition". Babylon in the end times is the "camp of confusion", and many will become part of that confusion simply by what they are taught, or not taught.
Jeremiah 50:30 "Therefore shall her young men fall in the streets, and all her men of war shall be cut off in that day, saith the Lord."
Though there is an historical record of this with the Medes and Persians coming against Babylon, but remember this is in reference to the "day of vengeance" the day of the return of Christ. So the historical event is only a type of what we shall see in this generation.
Jeremiah 50:31 "Behold, I am against thee, O thou most proud, saith the Lord God of hosts: for thy day is come, the time that I will visit thee."
God is speaking of Himself visiting earth on the day of visitation. When Jesus Christ comes to earth we will see the full wrath of God as it is poured out upon the earth. That cup spoken of above in Revelation 18:6 will be doubled to it full measure.
This time is not all bad, when you see what has happened here. For all confusion will be gone, and Satan will be placed in the pit. The eyes of all souls will be open to the full truth and understanding of God's Word, and this will start one thousand years of teaching and discipline. Teaching and discipline is what our present generation is lacking greatly.
Though all knees of all souls, who were ever created, will bow to Jesus Christ on the first day of the Millennium, we know from Ezekiel 44, and Revelation 20 that not all of those souls that bow to him will stay true to Christ. Over the thousand period, many will grow weary of Christ, and then when Satan is released at the end of the period for a short season, those weary souls will flock back to Satan. God then is looking forward to those days here.
What is important to you and me individually, is that we daily focus on our Lord Jesus Christ and the Word that shall keep us from becoming deceived.
We take it one day at a time, repenting for our failures in Jesus name, and keeping an eye on the events of the day, to know the signs and seasons that we are living in.
Jeremiah 50:32 "And the most proud shall stumble and fall, and none shall raise him up: and I will kindle a fire in his cities, and it shall devour all round about him."
In other words, God will utterly destroy that confusion of mystery Babylon. This is also directed to mount Zion where Satan will set up his tabernacle, in Jerusalem. God will cleanse that location whereby it is fit for the Millennium Temple.
Mark 13:1 "And as He went out of the temple, one of His disciples saith unto Him, "Master, see what manner of stones and what buildings are here!"
This was the time of the end of Jesus Ministry, and Jesus and His disciples were in Jerusalem where Jesus was about to be turned over to the Kenite priests, scribes and Pharisees to be tried and crucified. The disciples have been warned over and over that He would be crucified and on the third day He would rise from the dead. However, the disciples understood from the prophets that their is another time coming when Jesus shall return not as a servant, but as the King of Kings and the Lord of Lords.
Josephus give us a very good picture of the dimension and size of these stones. Some of them were up to forty feet long, given in the measurements of our day. Many of these stone still stand to this day, as we see the pictures of the wailing wall of the temple base in Jerusalem. The disciples are looking at these great building of the temple in Jerusalem, and they are marveling at their beauty.
Mark 13:2 "And Jesus answering said unto him, "Seest thou these great buildings? there shall not be left one stone upon another, that shall not be thrown down."
This has not happened to this date. Many today think that this was the time of Titus' destruction of Jerusalem in 70 A.D., However, that mischief doesn't even compare to the destruction and the tribulation that God describes that would take place at Jesus Christ's return, at the end of this earth age when these stones are cast down and turned to powder. Why is this? Because Jerusalem is going to be turned to sand when Jesus returns at the sounding of the seventh trump. Those huge stones will be nothing but tiny grains of sand. Jerusalem is going to be flattened and cleansed to the point whereby the Millennium temple can be build.Editor's Note: The above statement, in the literal sense might be true, But, I have a different take on this. You see, I believe the temple Christ will turn to powder when He returns is spiritual, as in "The Church" and the reference to stones is only used to give us a visual picture as to the severity of the destruction He will bring upon the religious practices, i.e.the temple, of that day.
Jeremiah 50:33 "Thus saith the Lord of hosts; "The children of Israel and the children of Judah were oppressed together: and all that took them captives held them fast; they refused to let them go."
Notice that during the time of Satan's oppression of mystery Babylon, both Israel and Judah are still separated.
During all the time from the first captivity by Assyria some 2,700 years ago to today, the "House of Israel" still is void of their true identity. Their captivity is their loss of identity, the descendants of the ancient "House of Israel" not only were carried off from their home in the promised land, but, they don't remember who they are even though they now make up the Christian nations of Europe and the Americas.
God didn't lose them, they lost themselves.
This even applies to much of Judah, until these later years.
That is what makes this generation so special, for it is in our generation that we Christians will understand fully who we really are, and come out of confusion.
Jeremiah 50:34 "Their Redeemer is strong; the Lord of hosts is His name: He shall thoroughly plead their cause, that He may give rest to the land, and disquiet the inhabitants of Babylon."
For we Christians who are still living in our flesh bodies during Satan's system, our [kinsmen] Redeemer is Jesus Christ Himself. Though we fall from day to day, when we repent Jesus is in heaven before the Father pleading our case, and that is why he is our advocate. When Jesus went to the cross and shed His blood for our sins, He paid the full price to be our kinsman Redeemer. In the court of God, it is rigged in our favor, for the Judge and our advocate are one and the same person, and when you name the name of Jesus, the judge never sees the charges that Satan accuses you of. The sin are blotted out just like they never happened.
Jeremiah 50:35 "A sword is upon the Chaldeans, saith the Lord, and upon the inhabitants of Babylon, and upon her princes, and upon her wise men."
It is the sword of the Lord that is upon all of Babylon, the spurious messiah, Satan, the Kenites, all the fallen angels and all of us that take part in her. The Sword of the Lord is the Word of God, and what God's holy Word states, that is exactly as it shall happen. The sword of the Lord is a two edged sword and it cuts both ways, it cuts into the lies that are put forth by the so-called ministers of God. And it shall set everything straight on the day of the Lord. God spoke and the world came into being, and when God speaks, the words that he speaks shall come to pass exactly as they are spoken.
Jeremiah 50:36 "A sword is upon the liars; and they shall dote: a sword is upon her mighty men; and they shall be dismayed."
God's Word will show the liars, or false ministers for the fools that they are, regardless of whether they call themselves Christian ministers or not.
The inhabitants of the city of Babylon of the end times are those that follow the religious mystery that their leaders are putting out. The inhabitants are those that believe in the "instead of Christ" Satan, the one who tells them that he has come to rapture them away. They are confused because of the liars that have lied to them., and every teacher will be accountable to God for what they teach.
Matthew 24:4 And Jesus answered and said unto them, Take heed that no man deceive you.
In my name means "in His authority". They come as Christian preachers, pastors, ministers, teachers, priests, etc., etc., all claiming to represent Him and saying "Jesus is Lord", "Praise the Lord", "Lord, Lord"! The problem is all that most of them teach are the idolatrous traditions of men! Very few claiming to represent Him in these last days ever teach the Word of God chapter by chapter and verse by verse whereby the people can come to know Christ and become firmly founded upon the true Rock. For many shall come in my name, saying, I am Christ; and shall deceive many.
Jeremiah 50:37 "A sword is upon their horses, and upon their chariots, and upon all the mingled people that are in the midst of her; and they shall become as women: a sword is upon her treasures; and they shall be robbed."
God's Word is upon all their powers and government and all the foreigners that are in their midst. All the people around the world that have taken this false-christ because of their teaching and become part of instead-of-christ system will also fall under the sword of the Lord. What God's Word said will happen to them, and His cup of wrath, will come to pass just as He said it will.
This is not a good time to be living if you are sitting under a false teacher and minister.
My fellow Christian, the entire world will wander after Satan except God's elect and the sealed of God from Revelation 7.
The women that they shall become is "mystery Babylon, the mother of harlots", they are the harlots spoken of there. The harlots are the fools that chase after the false messiah thinking he is Jesus. The only problem is that they got so carried away with their religion, that they forgot about the Word of God. The treasures are going to be taken from them. These people are very sincere people, dedicated to what they believe, however when they bow to Satan and his system, they become robbed of any treasures they have earned in Glory land. They have thrown their crown at the feet of Satan, and have nothing.
Jeremiah 50:38 "A drought is upon her waters; and they shall be dried up: for it is the land of graven images, and they are mad upon their idols."
There is only one Living Water and when you drink from that fountain there is never a drought. The drought of water that is brought about in this time is brought about by the two witnesses of Revelation 11 that have the power from God to stop it from raining.
Revelation 11:6 "These have power to shut heaven, that it rain not in the days of their prophecy: and have power over waters to turn them to blood, and to smite the earth with all plagues, as often as they will."
Amos 8:11 tells us of another type of drought that will exist then also; "Behold, the days come, saith the Lord God, that I will send a famine in the land, not a famine of bread, nor a thirst for water, but of hearing the words of the Lord."
The entire earth is becoming filled with their graven images, and their many forms of idols. They have become madly in love with their idols, and ways of teaching. They are sold out to their traditions, and customs that go directly against the way of God. It has become a way of lying and they are blind to it. Christian, this may sound strong, but we are dealing here with your soul. This is to challenge you and drive you into the Word of God. An idol is anything that you put between you and God to worship.
Jeremiah 50:39 "Therefore the wild beasts of the desert with the wild beasts of the islands shall dwell there, and the owls shall dwell therein: and it shall be no more inhabited for ever; neither shall it be dwelt in from generation to generation."
This is talking about the city of Babylon, and historically it has laid waste, however this is in reference to a time when all Babylon and confusion is destroyed and done away with. That time is when Jesus comes back to earth, and we are in the Millennium age. When that city of confusion is destroyed then no soul shall ever inhabit that system again. God will not allow it to happen again.
Jeremiah 50:40 "As God overthrew Sodom and Gomorrah and the neighbour cities thereof, saith the Lord; so shall no man abide there, neither shall any son of man dwell therein."
This is how God will destroy Babylon that shall completely cover the earth. It will be exactly as God destroyed Sodom and Gomorrah, not by any army or weapons created by men. The remains are the charcoal that is still in the soil there.
Genesis 19:24, 25 "Then the Lord rained upon Sodom and Gomorrah brimstone and fire from the Lord out of heaven."  "And He over threw those cities, and all the plain, and all the inhabitants of the cities, and that which grew upon the ground." 
This is a type of what shall happen to that System of the false-christ and those that chose to be part of it.
Jeremiah 50:41 "Behold, a people shall come from the north, and a great nation, and many kings shall be raised up from the coasts of the earth."
This is in reference to a whole one world system, a "New Word Order".
Jeremiah 50:42 "They shall hold the bow and the lance: they are cruel, and will not shew mercy: their voice shall roar like the sea, and they shall ride upon horses, every one put in array, like a man to the battle, against thee, O daughter of Babylon."
It is God and His children that come against Babylon in the final hour, and there will be no deserters and no breaking ranks at that time. Every person in that army that comes against Satan knows the abomination that he has committed, and they know they are part of the complete destruction of that system.
This is a reversal from Jeremiah 6. In that chapter the warning that came from Jeremiah was the the king of Babylon was coming, however in this verse Babylon controls the entire earth, and it is Jesus Christ and his army that shall come to destroy the false-christ and his Babylonian system. God always takes the north side, in relationship to mount Zion, and it is also the place of the tabernacle of Satan in the end times. Satan is displaced with the King of Kings and the Lord of Lords.
Historically this was the Medes and Persians coming against the Babylonians, but that was only a type.
Jeremiah 50:43 "The king of Babylon hath heard the report of them, and his hands waxed feeble: anguish took hold of him, and pangs of a woman in travail."
At the coming of Christ, Satan will be as helpless as a woman in childbirth. The pangs that take part at this time is the birth of a new age, the Millennium age. This is an age that we all look forward to, for those faithful to our Lord during the time of Antichrist, it is a time that we will receive our new spiritual bodies, that are incorruptible and immortal, that shall never age nor die. We will receive not only our eternal bodies then, but all the rewards that are coming to us.
For those that have bowed to the false-christ, Satan, There is a a thousand year wait, and then their rewards will be given according to their works only, but many may not make it even then. Grace is only part of this flesh age, for faith is not necessary in the Millennium age, for our Lord will be visible and here on earth with us. Salvation is given, based on faith, only to souls in the age of the flesh, and to those living in the flesh, and born of water of woman. This is going to come to pass and it will happen in our generation.
Jeremiah 50:44 "Behold, he shall come up like a lion from the swelling of Jordan unto the habitation of the strong: but I will make them suddenly run away from her: and who is a chosen man, that I may appoint over her? for who is like Me? and who will appoint Me the time? and who is that shepherd that will stand before Me?"
This is God speaking here asking these questions, and only God knows the answer to these questions. We know that approximate time by the signs and the seasons, but only God sets the dates. Praise God that this is in His hand for every soul must have the opportunity to come through this earth age, and many that are taken at birth or in their youth were tested in the first earth age; therefore, are not tried in this age of the flesh. They were and still are special to God.
What is important is that you make the choice as to what shepherd you will have over you in the eternity, for there is only one Shepherd then, Jesus the Christ, the Son of God. He will have under shepherds under Him in the Millennium age, but Jesus is the Shepherd that sits at the right hand of God. .
Jeremiah 50:45 "Therefore hear ye the counsel of the Lord that He hath taken against Babylon: and His purposes, that He hath purposed against the land of the Chaldeans: Surely the least of the flock shall draw them out: surely He shall make their habitation desolate with them."
The "counsel of the Lord" is God's plan directed right at you. God is telling you from His Word what He expects from you. God is reassuring you that everything that He has stated that will come to pass, shall happen exactly as stated. He is telling us that the very smallest person of His flock will drag and control even the most powerful of any of Satan's forces. God is going to make Satan's entire system and all that are in it helpless and a desolation.
This is saying that those that have been caught in the camp of Satan, haven't got a prayer to stand on. They are completely without excuse, because it will be of their own choosing, even if in ignorance. They can't point a finger to anyone, except themselves.
Jeremiah 50:46 "At the noise of the taking of Babylon the earth is moved, and the cry is heard among the nations."
The plan that God has given us in this chapter is that Jesus Christ is our kinsman Redeemer, and He is our only hope in this generation. Christ has already paid the price and only a fool would not take advantage of something so valuable. When Jesus Christ returns to this earth, the earth will shake, and all evil rudiments will be removed as this planet will be cleansed for the building of the new Millennium temple, and the one thousand year reign of our Lord and Savior.
