Coming Out of Babylon

Come out of her my people, so that you will not share in her sins, so that you will not receive any of her plagues: for her sins are piled up to heaven, and God has remembered her crimes (Revelation 18:4).

There is a day when God is going to judge the system of Babylon around the world. What is Babylon? Babylon is a system of doing business. The stronghold of the marketplace is mammon and pride. Dependence on money and misplaced trust are at the core of a Babylonian philosophy of life. Revelation 18 describes a time when God will judge this Babylonian system. It is the one place that we see the destruction of a system that can take place in one day, even one hour. I do not believe Babylon is a particular city, but a world system. ³Therefore, in one day, her plagues will overtake her² (Revelation 18:8). ³Woe! Woe, O Great city, O Babylon, city of great power! In one hour your doom has come!² (Revelation 18:10).

As Christian business people we are called to acknowledge the signs of the times. When the Soviet Union fell, many knew it was going to happen because they could recognize the signs of the times. God has a way of shaking things up. These shakings force us to determine who and what we will place our trust in. God says that we are to ³Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind² (Matthew 22:37).

Friend, are you still living in Babylon in the way you do business? If so, expect to share in the sins of Babylon when God decides to judge her. Ask God to show you where you might be operating in a ³Babylonian² system of work.
