LCG: Obama and Babylon

Nimrod’s promise

While it is doubtful that President Obama even knows about the Tomorrow’s World Bible Study Course, his September 25, 2009 speech on the accomplishments of the recent G20 summit contained nearly identical language to what the Living Church of God published more than nine years ago, and echoed Nimrod’s promises from four millennia past.
The Tomorrow’s World Bible Study Course Lesson 3 is titled, “Can you understand Bible Prophecy?” and explains topics ranging from the four ancient kingdoms of Daniel 2 (the Babylonians, Medes and Persians, Greco-Macedonians, and Romans) to the Four Horseman of the Apocalypse.  The reader is then guided through a study of the end-time, worldwide trading combine identified in Revelation 18:9-21 and Ezekiel 27, commonly called “Babylon the Great.”  The Bible reveals that this final, world-dominating empire is in fact a final revival of ancient Babylon.  Its roots and spiritual heritage are founded in ancient Babylon; the first of the four kingdoms of Daniel 2.

Referring to this end-time system, Bible Study Course Lesson 3 states: “The end-time manifestation of Babylon will promise what Nimrod promised the human family at the Tower of Babel: unity, security and prosperity.  This is what Nebuchadnezzar, Cyrus the Great, Alexander the Great, and Caesar Augustus, each in his turn, also offered” (page 11).

Speaking of confronting world challenges through international governance, President Obama said:  But we leave here today more confident and more united in the common effort of advancing security and prosperity for all of our people” (President Obama, September 25, 2009 Pittsburgh speech at the G-20 news conference).

While the G20 is not “Babylon the Great,” there is nothing wrong with “unity, security and prosperity,” and President Obama appears to be a well-intended man trying to deal with complex world problems. The reality is that in the coming years all institutions and nations will become increasingly dominated by Babylon the Great.  And for unity, security and prosperity, Babylon the Great will require sovereignty, freedom and religious submission

Eventually, Babylon the Great will use its economic and military might to attempt to enforce complete economic, political, military and religious submission.  This will lead many to accept the Mark of the Beast, which is to reject God’s laws, His Holy Days, and His sign of obedience – the Sabbath – and is to submit to this coming Babylonish system.

As Mr. Armstrong wrote decades ago, “You must soon choose whom you will obey – this coming Roman Empire resurrected by a United States of Europe, ruled by traditional Christianity – or whether you shall obey God! (Who or What is the Prophetic Beast?, 1960 edition, page 35).”

As I have written since he was first elected, President Obama appears destined to enable the rise of the King of the North (the “daughter of Babylon”) and the King of the South (an Arabic-Muslim confederation).

And he has taken steps that are leading in that direction.

When do the 1335 days, 1290 days, and 1260 days (the time, times, and half a time) of Daniel 12 begin? When does the Bible show that economic collapse will affect the United States?
