DCLM Daily Manna – Present-Day Babylon

DCLM Daily Manna 12 November 2023 Devotional By Pastor W. F. Kumuyi — Present-Day Babylon

TOPIC: Present-Day Babylon (DCLM Daily Manna 12 November 2023)

KEY VERSE: “Standing afar off for the fear of her torment, saying, Alas, alas, that great city Babylon, that mighty city! for in one hour is thy judgment come” (Revelation 18:10).

TEXT: Revelation 12:9-20 (KJV)

9 And the great dragon was cast out, that old serpent, called the Devil, and Satan, which deceiveth the whole world: he was cast out into the earth, and his angels were cast out with him.

10 And I heard a loud voice saying in heaven, Now is come salvation, and strength, and the kingdom of our God, and the power of his Christ: for the accuser of our brethren is cast down, which accused them before our God day and night.

11 And they overcame him by the blood of the Lamb, and by the word of their testimony; and they loved not their lives unto the death.

12 Therefore rejoice, ye heavens, and ye that dwell in them. Woe to the inhabiters of the earth and of the sea! for the devil is come down unto you, having great wrath, because he knoweth that he hath but a short time.

13 And when the dragon saw that he was cast unto the earth, he persecuted the woman which brought forth the man child.

14 And to the woman were given two wings of a great eagle, that she might fly into the wilderness, into her place, where she is nourished for a time, and times, and half a time, from the face of the serpent.

15 And the serpent cast out of his mouth water as a flood after the woman, that he might cause her to be carried away of the flood.

16 And the earth helped the woman, and the earth opened her mouth, and swallowed up the flood which the dragon cast out of his mouth.

17 And the dragon was wroth with the woman, and went to make war with the remnant of her seed, which keep the commandments of God, and have the testimony of Jesus Christ.


Some people will avoid admitting the obvious truth, or speaking their mind, if they have the indication that such an action will trigger mass protest against them, or if they suspect that powerful people would be hurt. On the other hand, such people will readily acknowledge and even echo some outrageous positions that they think are popular with the public, and would advance their personal interests. This is the condition of present-day Babylon.

The book of Revelation speaks about the mystery of Babylon, which signifies the world and its system. It is presented as a city that is full of corruption and immorality. A great harlot that plays host to all the kings and nobles in society, who flock around her in search of pleasure and wealth. All kinds of merchandise are traded, even the souls of men. But suddenly, it falls and with it goes all the lusts and corruption thereof. The people standing afar see its demise and wonder how such a great city could fall so suddenly and irredeemably.

Babylon represents the current world system. The present material world promotes the worship of Satan, the god of this world. It encourages abortion, pornography, gambling, drug and alcohol usage, nightclubs, etc. and the persecution and killing of saints.

Babylon will fall at the second advent of Christ. The Lord will finally destroy this present world with fire and fervent heat. Sadly, those who have made this world their only hope and source of comfort and pleasure will cry when it falls into irrecoverable ruins and destruction.

The world’s system will collapse soon.

Ezekiel 3-5
