Part II
Babylon Was Once A Christian Nation
And Has Become
The Habitation of Devils
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.
Revelation 18:2
In Revelation 18:2 God says “Babylon the great…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.” God is
clearly stating here that previously Babylon was not the habitation of devils but there has been a
change. Babylon was once a Christian nation but now it has fallen; it has turned its back on God.
Babylon has fallen as Adam and Eve fell. Babylon was once a righteous nation that served God
and now has become evil. Different parts of the world are known to be strong holds of different
demonic spirits but Babylon is become a strong hold of “every foul spirit”.
God created Adam and Eve is his own image, they were perfect and without sin. They
spoke to their creator face to face; they lived in a perfect environment in the Garden of Eden;
they enjoyed perfect happiness, perfect health and eternal life. When Adam and Eve sinned, they
fell. Their fall caused them to loose God's blessings. They could no longer speak to him face to
face; they were kicked out of the Garden of Eden and they lost their perfect happiness, their
perfect health and their eternal life. As a result of their sin, one of their sons killed another (Cain
killed Abel) and the earth became populated with evil sinners and ruthless killers. Eventually
Adam and Eve died as a result of their sin.
God says Babylon is fallen. The word fallen is indicating a change of condition. A nation
cannot fall from God's grace if it had not been under the grace of God. Babylon, a nation that
was under God’s grace, a nation that had received his blessings, has fallen from His grace.
Babylon “is become the habitation” of “every foul spirit.” The words “is become” indicate a
change of condition also. At one time these foul spirits did not inhabit Babylon. God is clearly
describing a Christian nation that was under his grace and received his blessings. This nation has
now rejected Him, they have fallen from His grace; His blessings are no longer upon them. This
nation has embraced every kind of sin and false religion and in so doing has become the
habitation every foul spirit. When Adam and Eve’s fell, the result could be seen in their children.
Although they had children who worshiped God such as Abel and Seth, most of their children
became evil. The result of Babylon’s fall can likewise be seen in her children. While some of
them serve God, most of them have rejected God’s laws; they have become evil!
