Judgment of Babylon


God is judging Babylon,
For she is filled with pride.
Instead of turning back to Him,
His Word she has defied.

In her hand she holds the cup
Of her adulteries.
This Mother of the Prostitutes
Has made the Lord displeased.

Her mouth is filled with wickedness
And darkness is her cloak.
Her heart has turned to other gods.
The Lover is provoked.

God simply has no other choice,
So judgment falls like rain.
Because she learns not through His words,
Then she must learn through pain.

This land’s no longer of the free.
With sin it is defiled.
Now God must judge America,
The great, rebellious child.

-- C.V., girl, age 14    

My daughter, C.V., wrote this poem on March 25, 2013.  It's meant to be Part One to another poem she wrote previously, called America, Turn Back to God.  She is of the opinion that America is the Babylon of Revelation 17 and 18, which God is now going to judge.

My daughter is not the only one who believes this.  There are many who do, like Texe Marrs, which he writes about on his website.

Another man named, Dumitru Duduman, who was a Romanian evangelist that immigrated to America, received an angelic visitation in which he was told America is Babylon. In his book, Dreams and Visions From God, he answered the question, "Why did God name America Mystery Babylon?"  He wrote the answer he was given by God in 1984:  "Tell them, because all the nations of the world immigrated to America with their own gods and were not stopped. Encouraged by the freedom here, the wickedness began to increase.  Later on, even though America was established as a Christian nation, the American people began to follow the strange gods that the immigrants had brought in, and also turned their backs on the God who had built and prospered this country." You can hear his testimony about that experience here in this video.  You can also read a transcript of the angelic visitation in which he was told how America would fall.

Whether Texe Marrs and Dumitru Duduman have really heard from God will soon become evident to all. 

More of our children's poems:

Author's note The poems in this blog were written by my children, ages seven through fourteen. The "Why This Blog" post explains how the Lord inspired these poems in answer to a prayer during illness. Please also see America, Turn Back to God. I also recommend visiting my children's blog, A Brush with Life, where you will also find beautiful art they have drawn for the glory of God. You can access my complete blog directory at "Writing for the Master."  Now I'd like to ask a very important question.

Do You Want to Know Him?
If you want to know Jesus personally, you can. It all begins when you repent and believe in Jesus.  Do you know what God's Word, the Bible says?

“Jesus came into Galilee, preaching the gospel of God, and saying, ‘The time is fulfilled, and the kingdom of God is at hand; repent and believe in the gospel.’” (Mar 1:14b-15).  He preached that we must repent and believe.

Please see my explanation of this in my post called "Do You Want to Know Jesus?"
