The Soon Coming Judgment Of God Upon America and How To Escape It                26
Chapter 1
Old Testament Descriptions of Babylon
The Bible describes two kingdoms of Babylon. The first occurrence is in the old
testament. This was the empire that God raised up to judge his chosen people, Israel. At the time
that Babylon was raised up, Israel had already been divided and the eight tribes of the northern
kingdom had already been carried away into captivity by the Assyrians (2 Kings 17:5-23). God
used Babylon to judge the southern kingdom by taking them into captivity because they had
forsaken Him.
The second kingdom of Babylon is described both in the book of Revelation and the Old
Testament. There are many similarities between ancient Babylon and Babylon of the end times
and that is why God uses the same name; it is not because they are located in the same place. The
second kingdom of Babylon will be used again by God to judge his new testament church.
Babylon will form a one-word government and a one-world religion, a New World Order
(NWO). Babylon will force the world to accept the mark of the beast and to worship an image of
the beast. By doing this, Babylon will divide the world into two groups, the sheep and the goats.
The sheep represent God's faithful who obey God's commandments, who refuse to accept the
mark, and who refuse to worship the image of the beast. The goats represent those who have
rejected God's commandments, those who accept the mark, and who worship the image of the
beast. Among the goats will be a great many apostate Christians.
The kingdom of Babel established by Nimrod is generally identified as the original
Babylon. Nimrod was the great grandson of Noah. Babel was the location of the Tower of Babel.
Nimrod was an occultist and he sought to unite all the people of the world under a false occult
religion. God was angry and he confused the language of the people so that no one person could
deceive the entire world, babel means confusion. People divided according to their new
languages, departed and set up many different kingdoms (Genesis 10:8-10; and 11:1-9).
While some creationist believe that the earth or continents were  divided when “all the
fountains of the great deep were broken up” during the flood (Gen. 7:11), the word of God says
otherwise. “[T]he earth was divided” in the days of Peleg (Genesis 10:25). Peleg was the great
great great grandson of Noah. He lived in the same generation as Nimrods grandchildren. This
demonstrates that the earth was divided after God created different languages and dispersed the
