Isaiah 47

New King James Version (NKJV)

The Humiliation of Babylon

47 “Come down and sit in the “dust” (daqaq: the crumbled, crushed (thing), etc..),
O virgin daughter of Babylon;
Sit on the ground without a throne,
O daughter of the Chaldeans!
For you shall no more be called
Tender and delicate.
Take the millstones and grind meal.
Remove your veil,
Take off the skirt,
Uncover the thigh,
Pass through the rivers.
Your nakedness shall be uncovered,
Yes, your shame will be seen;
I will take vengeance,
And I will not arbitrate with a man.”

Amein and Amein!!!!

The prophet Eliyah here declaring a word of warning to Babylon, who soon had forgetten who had brought her to greatness: Does this sound familiar to anyone?

This story with eerie similarity to ours, the free world, a people who’s JudeoChristian tenants became their strength – freedom, tenants that seemingly dwindle before our very eyes, the instigator? she who calls for respect in place of shame, she who says, we know the secrets – they are revealed to us, you know her; the professional prognosticators of times, the worshipers of idols (other g-ds), of things, the accusers of the Word – offenders of the Works; Babylon you back-stabber, you who received greatness, the things only YHWH birthed, you know the strength – the freedom, you sorcerer, adulterer, disrespector of mother and father; you lie to your loved ones, seeking loose sexual conduct, a therapy; you know salvation and destruction, it doesn’t affect you.

Strengthen yourselves daily friends, don’t cease to speak the Word – walk the Works – warning others, but most of all, guard against her – that you too may not fall, for it is written, for it will be, a matter for the crushing.

With love. Always in YH’shua.

Strong’s Hebrew Lexicon:

Dust: 1854 daqaq daw-kak’ a primitive root (Compare 1915); to crush (or intransitively) crumble:–beat in pieces (small), bruise, make dust, (into) X powder, (be, very) small, stamp (small).
