WITH VIOLENCE SHALL BABYLON BE CAST DOWN
by Dr. Wesley A. Swift - 6-10-64
We turn to the subject ‘With Violence shall Babylon be Cast Down.’---Revelation, chapter 17 and 18, contains so much in the content of God’s word concerning Great Babylon. We understand that great Babylon was at one time a great city. And we understand that Mystery Babylon the Great---was the enemy of Israel, this Kingdom of God. Babylon had a powerful and highly organized system of administration. It was a city that worshiped Baal, for the priesthood was involved in all the politics of Babylon, and had ruled over all the ancient world at one time in its history. And in the areas of its trade it gained control over the nations of the world. It established its vital power of usury and extended its authority into the ends of the earth. In fact, in all history, God looked upon Babylon as the most evil of all the most vital powers. So God declared its destruction, and Daniel, when a captive in that land, described how Medo-Persia would be the power to break down Great Babylon.
You can turn to the book of Jeremiah, and read:-- ‘the portion of Jacob is not like unto these brutish nations in their vanity and their work of error. HE is before all things, and Israel is the rod of HIS inheritance--the LORD of Hosts is HIS name.’
Then HE speaks of how Israel is My battle ax and weapon of war, and with thee, will I break in pieces the nations and Kingdoms, the horse and his rider, and the man and the woman, the young men and the old men. And I will destroy the strange shepherds and their flocks. (Jeremiah 51:19-24.) Under this declaration, God is speaking out concerning the areas of darkness, and HE said concerning this, ‘I will render unto Babylon and unto all the inhabitants of Chaldea, all the evil they have done in Zion in thy sight. For I am against thee O destroying mountain, saith the LORD.---For I will stretch out my hand upon thee, and I will roll thee down from the rocks, I will make thee a burnt mountain.’-----Thus, it is that the word of God comes upon this Mystery Babylon. And there shall not be one stone used again---so great will the destruction of Babylon be. You have an example in the old city of Babylon. It was destroyed by Medo-Persia--and NOT by Israel.
Now, Babylon was an Aryan kingdom. And the next rulers were raised in that land. But here it is also talking about something more significant which is to take place, where as ancient Babylon never rose again under the emblem of the temple city of Babylon. Still--it rose again in its power and its administration. Thus, here in Revelation 17:5, we have a mystery in our scriptures, and the system of Mystery Babylon---is the bride of Lucifer. It is the symbol of his power and evil throughout the world.
Now, we have the bride of the Father, and it also says, ‘I am thy husband, the LORD of Host is HIS name.’ Here He is speaking to Israel, the household which HE had adopted. In this instance, adoption means the positioning and the timing of birth, and the creation of the whole structure of the family of God in the midst of the earth. So HE said to Israel, ‘I am thy maker, and thy husband.’ (Isaiah 54:5)....Thus, He raised up under Israel, the symbol of strength and power.
But, under Lucifer, we have the Babylonian system as his bride. (Rev. 17:1) And there came one of the seven angels who said, ‘come hither, and I will show thee the judgement of the great whore that sitteth upon many waters, with whom the kings of the earth have committed fornication, and the inhabitants of earth have been made drunk with the wine of her fornication. So he carried me away in the spirit into the wilderness; and I saw a woman sit upon a scarlet colored Beast, full of names of blasphemy, having seven heads and ten horns. And the woman was arrayed in purple and scarlet color, and decked with gold and precious stones and pearls, having a cup in her hand full of abominations and filthiness of here fornication. And upon her forehead was a name written:-- ‘Mystery Babylon the Great, the mother of harlots and abominations of the earth.’ And I saw the woman drunken with the blood of the Saints and the martyrs of Jesus, and when I saw her, I wondered at her. And the angel said unto me, ‘wherefore dist thou marvel? I will tell thee the mystery of the woman, and of the beast carrieth her, which hath the seven heads and the ten horns.’ Thus,--we turn to the explanation of the woman who sits upon many waters and tells us the mystery of Mystery Babylon the Great.
The Angel said, ‘The beast that thou sawest is not and shall ascend out of the bottomless pit and go into perdition.’ This of course, the system of the World Order upon which the woman rideth. Here is the mind that hath wisdom:--the seven heads are seven mountains on which the woman sitteth. And seven kings have fallen and one is, and the other is not yet come. And when he cometh, he must remain a short space. And the beast which was and is not---even he is the eighth, and is of the seventh, and goeth into perdition.’
Now, we realize that many people thru the years as they looked upon this woman, have classified her as the church. There is an ecclesiastic Babylon, and there is a political Babylon, and an economic Babylon. But, all of it is dominated by a strange group of people. Thess are people who YAHWEH sets forward in the 18th chapter of Revelation in verse 2:-- ‘Babylon is become the habitation of devils, and the hold of every foul spirit, and a cage of very unclean birds.’ Then you remember, how Jesus turned to the Jews at Jerusalem and HE said, ‘Ye are the generations (offspring) of the serpents and vipers. Ye are of your father the devil and the lusts of him ye will do.’ The HE also said that Judas of Iscariot was a devil, and after saying that, HE had to walk in Galilee because the devils sought to kill HIM.
Thus, we come to the origin of the Jews and to the origin of Mystery Babylon. And we will discover, that this is a very great truth. Because we found that in the hours of rebellion by Lucifer and his angels followed him, that after their defeat in outer space, they came into the world and they intermingled with the people of earth, and produced unassimilatable people who were called devils, and they could be of all races. And they were descendants of Lucifer and his fallen kingdom. Cain was the white one. For he was of the evil one referred to in the records of John. So these people here in Jerusalem in the time of the Christ, that were persecuting HIM, were the descendants of Lucifer. And they had all the attributes of their father, Lucifer. And this is all exposed in the Gospel of John.
Now, Mystery Babylon the Great is controlled and run by these descendants of Lucifer, and has been al thru this time. Then when we go into the seven heads and the seven kings, we find that John, under inspiration, wrote in the book of Revelation, and he said, ‘Five are fallen and one is and one is yet to come. These are 1. Egypt, 2. Assyria, 3. Babylon, 4. Medo-Persia, 5. Greece, and one is---was 6. Rome. Then the seventh was formed by Jewry, after they had gained power thru out all southern Europe, and formed their headquarters, now, at Venice. Then they planned at that time to use the hoards of Asia and Africa to over run the White Christian nations of Europe. So they used Chepe Noyon who was a Chinese Jew. And he was under the command of the Ogpu at Venice. And thru him, they raised up Genghis Khan. And thus, Genghis Khan from the Steppes of Asia, was number seven. Genghis Khan conquered Baghdad and the areas of that land. And then he came against the cities of Eastern and southern Europe. And he and his hoards came to the very gaits of Venice before he was stopped. As he came into Europe, and bombarded cities, we find that the Jews wearing yellow arm bands to identify themselves, opened the gates of the cities to the Mongol hoards. And as they came into the cities, then the Jews pointed out the homes of men of the White race who were wealthy Israelites. And then the Jews shared in the spoils taken from these homes. As the hoards of the Asiatics came into Europe, all Christendom sent their fighting Knights to battle the Asiatic hoards. Then---YAHWEH--stepped into the picture. And Genghis Khan died and was carried back to the Steppes of Asia to be buried. This slowed down the invasion. But the war continued right up to the time of Martin Luther. And we find that Martin Luther said that the Jews should never be allowed to come into the Church, or into any part of Germany. And that those already there should be deported and none of the spoils they had already taken should be allowed to go out with them.
Now, the 8th comes out of the 7th. And again, we see the hoards of Asia. This time, under Communism. And today, they have taken over one-half of Europe. And they hold these countries behind the iron curtain and in slavery by the same force which came out of the seventh. I point out to you that the force which gave power to the beast, whose deadly would was healed---this force that gave power to the world system, whose deadly wound was healed---is Jewry---World Jewry. For remember, that the Jews with the pen of Karl Marx, brought forth the plans for revolution. They organized and spread the revolution and banks controlled the area of the expansion of the revolution. And they put out the money necessary for that expansion for Lenin and Engles, and for all areas of that revolution. They not only led and financed this revolution, but the House of Rothchild was foremost in this situation along with Kuhn Loeb and Co. and various banks in America. And the whole system of world finance brought upon the world---this 8th beast which is World Communism. And it is the 8th, which is out of the 7th area, the Steppes of Asia and under the control of Jewry.
So,---This woman of the Luciferian system is riding upon the back of the Red Beast. And we have the evidence today that Mystery Babylon the Great is run by Jewry.
Now, the ten horns are ten kings who have received no kingdom as yet, but they are to receive power as in one hour with the beast. So there are temporary puppet dictators. They are men like Tito of Yugoslavia, or the dictators of Poland, and East Germany. And they reign this hour with the Beast (World) System.
Now, Great Mystery Babylon and its pagan religion is a part of this beast system. Remember that Jewry created inside of China, the pagan religions of Buddhism. And they also control the temples of Brahma, Vishnu, and Siva. And also Jewry has moved in to control the religions of True Israel, as they seek to turn Israel astray. In fact, under the instance of this, then every religion that confesses not that Jesus is the Christ, the same is anti-Christ. It is anti-Christ Babylon at its height. And we point out that Jerusalem is today the most, or at least one of the most anti-Christ cities in the world. You find no true Christian Church in Jerusalem for the Jews are entirely Satanic--anti-Christ--and anti-YAHWEH.
So, the ten horns were the ten kings, or puppet rulers. And their minds were all ready to give their power unto the beast, for they are ready for war.
Now, chapter 17 of Revelation, in verse 14, we are told, ‘And the Lamb shall overcome them, for HE is LORD of LORDS and King of Kings. And they that are with HIM are called the CHOSEN AND THE FAITHFUL.’
Under this instance, this means, ‘ALL ISRAEL’. For HE does declare that Israel is HIS battle ax and weapon of war. And with them, HE is going to break in pieces Mystery Babylon the Great. And make no mistake about it. She is going down.
Now, verse 15:-- ‘The waters which thou sawest, where the whore sits, are people---the multitudes, and the nations and the tongues. They have been ruled over by Great Babylon. They have been under the influence and the control of Great Babylon. And they shall break forth. And these ten horns, shall hate the whore and shall make her desolate and naked, and shall eat her flesh and burn her with fire.’-This is symbolic. But it does mean that they shall overthrow Great Babylon. And they shall riot, and with violence shall she be thrown down. And more than that, here is the declaration that YAHWEH put in the hearts of these people that they agree to give their part of the kingdom to the Beast---until the words of YAHWEH be fulfilled.
Now, verse 18:-- ‘The woman which thou sawest is the Great City---(Lucifer’s kingdom) which reigneth over the kings of the earth. It holds control and reigns over the kings of the earth. Make no mistake about this. For Great Babylon does reign over the rulers of earth. It has been thru out the periods of time, the great manipulators of money, and has sought to get its hands on the head of God and on the control of silver and jewels. She has been making agreements with the rulers of earth. In fact, from the manipulators of God and silver in Europe, came the men who set up the operations of the Roman Empire, and continue---unto the ‘puppet’ kings of today. The decisions that marked the independence of nations was built upon their advice and financial power. For instance, the U.S. Government came into existence because of unfair taxation. And when this country protested the unfair tax, the areas of Babylon who had loaned money to the King of England, would not let the King make any allowances or exceptions to his tax base. They were at that time grinding down the King, and making him accept their method of taxation. In fact, so much was this so, that they told the King that they would finance his war against the Colonies. And if he lost that war, then they wanted control of all the banks of England. And if he won the war, then they wanted the banks in America. All that time, they were carrying the emblem of Mystery Babylon the Great against the other nations as they sought to gain control of our new nation.
We discover that in New Amsterdam, which later was called New York, that the Jews had Hiram Solomon handling their affairs, and he was a Jew. He said, ‘We will loan money to establish the States.’ But Samuel Morris was another that was a rascal and a traitor and a rat. But people have listed him in history as the man who secured a great loan from Hiram Solomon. And even now, we still owe more than that original loan because of the way the situation has been manipulated with the use of ‘USURY.’ Of course, that was a small amount considering the billions of today.
Revelation 18:2:-- ‘And the Angel cried, ‘Babylon the Great is fallen, and has become the habitation of devils, and the hold of every evil and foul spirit, and every unclean and hateful bird. And all nations have drunk of the wine of the wrath of her fornication, and the kings of the earth have committed fornication with her, and the merchants of earth are waxed rich thru the power of her.’
So---Mystery Babylon moved into the merchants of the city, and plotted and planned for monetary gain, and to squeeze out, and to gain whole areas of industry. Backed by her manipulation, she eventually gained control in the U.S. by the Federal Reserve System, which is a private banking institution. And it was not the responsibility of the U.S. Congress to turn over to this private banking system the handling of our money and the control of it. But that is exactly what the Congress of the United States did. This was managed by Carter Glass and Colonel House, as they gained control over Woodrow Wilson. And as we know, Mr. Kuhn of Kuhn Loeb and Co., wrote to Mr. House whose mother was a Jewess, and said, ‘We thank you for all you have done in your efforts to thru America over to thy people, who will know better how to manage her economy, and I give you a blank check for your work, and that check will be honored at any place in the world as long as you draw it on our banks.’-----Now, that letter is in the papers of Colonel House in the archives of this country. And I have a copy of that letter and other papers in that collection. They tell you of his work in turning over the finances of this country to the Jews. So the fact remains, that we have gone a long way under their influence.
During the Great Depression which the Jews created by their withdrawal of all credits from the Federal Reserve Banks which they had created, they brought on the Depression so that as businesses were forced to close. The Jews moved in and bought them up cheap, and they ended up with a monopoly over U.S. business. And then when W.W. II came along, they wanted to destroy Germany, so they turned the money loose, and we found that there was no Depression. So we started to make war materials. They took away our gold when Franklin D. Roosevelt took us off the gold standard. And he did it for the Jews. They have manipulated it ever since. Even tho by law---we are required to hold vast amounts of gold in the treasury. So in the areas of their manipulation, then our gold kept going out, and our supply of gold got smaller and smaller. Then the end of W.W. II came and they came up with more programs to disperse our gold, such as the I.M.P---the International Monetary Fund. Then they turned upon our silver, because we still had silver certificates which was not under the control of Mystery Babylon, as we could go to the bank and trade the paper dollar for silver as long as you could do that, then you didn’t need to carry silver around. My friends, you went off the silver standard and then you didn’t have any silver certificates, for none have been printed since that time. And they are busy picking up all the silver certificates and destroying them. So all the money we have left in our hands today are Federal Reserve notes, and these are under their control, as they are no longer backed by silver. They have even taken the silver out of your coins. Yes, Congress has been taken over by this Mystery Babylon, and never see her faults.
In the area of stocks which Americans bought thinking they represented the productions of things, and the plants which produced the things Americans wanted and needed, now that the gold and silver are gone, then you only have a piece of paper which doesn’t have to be redeemed by anything. Then comes the increase of taxation, and people had to quit buying. So the market dives and the companies such as the car manufacturing companies start laying off workers. And that causes more taxation to take care of the unemployed. And when the squeeze had done its work, then the Jews plan to take over the car companies.
Again, all this is Mystery Babylon at work. She makes Depressions and nations of Israel all trade with their enemy, not knowing who their enemy is. She moves on Labor in order to control the production of industry, and to freeze out all the white production of industry. And this is accomplished by the manipulation of Labor and the prices and wages. There are many people even in organized labor who do not understand that behind the scenes is Great Babylon, and that they are setting them up to be manipulated in their design to destroy all White industries.
Now, the kings of the earth were to go along with all this because they would get their cut in all this design. Notice Nkoma of Ghana, as he was run out of that country the other day, and took with him ten million dollars. Great Babylon winks at this for after all, it is only paper money and they can make any adjustments they want.
But, the kings of the earth have gone along with Mystery Babylon the Great even in this economic field. Then, I heard a voice saying:-- ‘Come out of her O My people, that ye be not partakers of her sins, that ye receive not of her plagues.’
Do you realize that it is Mystery Babylon which is behind all the propaganda warfare which says the Negro and the White man are of the same status except for the color of their skin? This is preposterous. For the Negro was in Africa for thousands and thousands of years, and then he saw the White man ride by in his chariot. But they never made a wheel. Knowing this, then we are faced with this fact that this is integration propaganda that is being thrown at us.
Now, we are a great nation because YAHWEH put the resources here. HE provided so much for America that she was able to extend the areas of her prosperity, even tho Mystery Babylon was taking her wealth and taking and taking. However, we are now coming up to the point where things are slowing down, and the cry of Labor is not being answered. And Congress cannot any longer satisfy the cry of the Labor leaders. Even Great Babylon will no longer answer their cry as she takes control of industry.
So YAHWEH said, ‘Come out of her O My people.’ Why? Because Mystery Babylon has created all this catastrophe in the political world, the economical world, and the ecclesiastic world. The United Nations is a Mystery Babylon operation. And the United States should get out of her before she falls and we get caught in her plagues as she falls. Of course, a percentage of our people are enlightened and they are against the facets of Great Babylon. But more will have to be awakened. But the fact remains, that her sins have reached unto heaven, and YAHWEH hath remembered her iniquities, and HE knows she belongs to Satan’s children, and HE remembers the sins of political Babylon, economic Babylon, and Mystery Babylon’s ecclesiastic control. HE knows that every foul and evil thing has moved in on her, and she has made the nations of Israel follow her. And therefore, YAHWEH remembers and HE says thru the prophet Isaiah, ‘Israel is My battle ax, and weapons of war, and with you will I bring down Great Babylon, and exterminate her.’
Then we come to verses 6 and 7:-- ‘YAHWEH will reward her (Mystery Babylon) as she rewarded you (Israel), and will double unto her according to her works, in which she has filled her cup (of iniquity). How much she has glorified herself and lived so deliciously and caused so much torment and sorrow. So double that to her, for she saith in her heart ‘I sit as a queen and I am no widow, and shall see no sorrow.’
Therefore, this Mystery institution of world political power and international finance has one constant design, and that is the crushing conquest and absorption of White Christian civilization.
We note in the 24th verse, that in this great Mystery Babylon, was found all the blood of the prophets and of the saints (believing offspring) and of all that were slain upon the face of the earth. And verse 24 says, ‘that by the merchants of the earth were all the nations deceived.’
These merchants are the Jewish merchants of Mystery Babylon. And here we remember that Jesus turned to these same people in the book of Matthew, and identified these false pharisees and hypocrites and scribes, as vipers and serpents--the same Luciferian kingdom people. And HE said thru John, ‘Who warned you to fleefrom the wrath to come?’ Then HE said, ‘you tell me that if you had lived in the time of your fathers that you would not have killed the prophets, but by that admission, you have also admitted that you are of the race and family that did kill the prophets.’ These are the words of Jesus and HE is saying that ‘I hold you ‘Mystery Babylon’ responsible for all the blood of all the righteous slain on the face of the earth, from Abel who was killed by Cain, to Zachariah who was killed between the horns of the altar, and all the righteous blood that will still be spilled on this earth---this I require of you.
Now, in the areas of this mystery, then Babylon the Great is in the hands of these people who have killed the Saints and the prophets, and all those who were to be slain upon the face of the earth. It was Jewry at the time of the denunciation of Jesus, and it is the same today.
Vs. 9:-- The kings of the earth then who committed fornication with her shall bewail her, and lament for her when they see the smoke of her.
Vs. 10:-- Standing afar off from her will be these mighty bunch of merchants, and they will be saying ‘alas, alas, Great Babylon is fallen, for in one hour her judgement came. Alas, alas.----(and in Yiddish it is Oi, Oi)
Vs. 12:-- The merchants of the earth will buy her merchandise no more.
Now, the instance of this is rather unique. Because the merchandise of gold and silver and precious stones and pearls is jewelry and the jewelry business. Then the fine linen and purple and silk is the clothing industry in the hands of Jewry. The drug business is also in their hands, and all manners of wood, brass, and iron and marble--is the furniture business in the hands of Babylon. (Jewry) In their hands, is also, the spices, the odors and frankincense which is the perfume business. Then the oil and the wine---a few of them in the liquor business are not Jews, and that goes for oil. But most of them are controlled one way or another. Then the fine flour and wheat and cattle and hogs and sheep are products off your farms, but they are coming under control of the Jewish owned packing companies and the great grain companies. The chariots are the transportation system, and the labor bosses are used to deliver these into the hands of Great Babylon. Then the slaves---these are the bodies in correct translation---this is the ‘Undertaking’ business, and all things connected with death. And last, the souls of men.
Vs. 17:-- The merchants of these things are made rich by her (Mystery Babylon) shall stand afar off, for the fear of her, for in one hour her great riches will be as nothing.
Every ship master and all the companies who owned the ships that traded with Mystery Babylon will stand afar off as she burns.
Vs. 20:-- Rejoice over her, thou heaven, and ye Holy Apostles and Prophets, for YAHWEH hath avenged you.
Vs. 21:-- And a mighty Angel took up a stone like a great mill stone and cast it into the sea saying ‘with violence shall Mystery Babylon be thrown down and shall be found no more.
Alright, Jesus, in the hour of HIS ministry, when HE took the Challis and when HE was preparing for HIS Atonement, said to HIS Disciples, that the Kingdom of YAHWEH hath suffered violence and the violence had taken it by storm. And then HE said that the day would come when HIS servants would fight and the Kingdom would not be given to the Jews.
So we have arrived at this hour when at any moment the servants of YAHWEH may fight and our exploitation will cease from the face of the earth. It is the time for us to build an economy that Jewry has no control over. I am going to tell you that even Labor will rise up and take to the streets against Mystery Babylon. For the great percentage of the citizens of our nation are not a part of Great Babylon. And the true people of Israel will not hesitate to help in the destruction of this pagan institution called ‘Great Babylon.’ We will help smash her control over our religion. As yet--for most of Israel, tho foolish, has not bowed the knee to Baal. For from generation to generation, we have had the word of YAHWEH. Blindness in part has happened to Israel, but when these things come to pass, then they will be coming into awakening. They have known who YAHWEH was. They just don’t know who they are.
It will be the White Christian people of America that shall determine the destiny of our nation. They will be the ones who shall stop the Civil Rights program. And they are the ones who will take us out of the United Nations. And they are the ones who shall determine America’s destiny.
Vs. 22:-- The voices of the harpers and musicians, and the pipers shall be heard no more in Mystery Babylon, and the craftsmen who work under her shall also disappear. And the Angel took Great Babylon like a millstone and cast her in to the sea. And the sea was the numbers of people upon which Mystery Babylon rode.
Now, make no mistake about this being the correct interpretation, for remember HE said, ‘The waters which thou sawest where the great whore sitteth--are people, the multitudes and the nations and the tongues.’ So now Mystery Babylon is to be cast like a stone, to disappear in to this sea of people--the masses, the mobs and the hoards of the earth, WHO FINALLY FOUND THAT THEY HAVE BEEN THEMSELVES, MANIPULATED BY MYSTERY BABYLON---these devils of the earth. So under this instance she shall go down.
Vs. 23:-- And the light of the candle shall shine no more at all in her. And the voice of the bridegroom and the bride shall be heard no more in her. For thy merchants were great men of the earth.
This means the men of this World Order. Because the great men of the Kingdom are not of this World Order.
So we have these men of the World Order all around us. And they are making great plans. But with violence shall Great Babylon be thrown down. And this will not be a single thing. But also remember that part of Great Babylon’s fall will come with victory of Michael the Great Archangel and the victory of Christ. For part of Babylon will make war with the Lamb, and the Lamb is going to overcome as HE is going to be known as KING OF KINGS AND LORD OF LORDS.
Do not think that it will be all settled at some peace table. For with violence, shall Mystery Babylon be thrown down. The system that has helped to carry forward the Satanic conspiracy of Lucifer, and that has filled the minds of the world with a double standard, which has set up the whole program of Depressions, and more Depressions and troubles, is about over. And we shall watch Babylon fall. And then we shall get our gold and silver back, because YAHWEH says, ‘I shall restore to you these things that the strangers have taken, and with thee-- I shall destroy them utterly.’
I would like to point out that since world Jewry has been the head and the manipulating force behind the system of Mystery Babylon, then organized World Jewry will be destroyed also in the uprising of the people of the world as well as the withdrawal of this nation from her institutions.
The tares are to be taken out of the way. And this may be part of the tares being taken out. Then with the tares gone, it will be a much better world, and we will look forward to that day.
With violence shall Babylon be cast down---and RISE NO MORE. Surely, by now you realize that this is not a real city.
When mighty Babylon falls, it will be the falling of the Symbolic Mystery System that controls all pagan religions and false theology, philosophies, and economic manipulations---all parts of the Luciferian kingdom. And GREAT will be the FALL of that kingdom.
