WE FELL BABYLON BY THE “WATER” OF GOD’S WORD! babylon, jerusalem

King David felled the Jebusite unfellable fortress Jerusalem by the only way into the “impregnable” fortress……..thru the water shaft.

Cyrus felled Babylon the same way!……..he diverted the flow of the river, and walked under the wall , thru the river-bed.

My point is: …….in the bible, the WORD OF GOD is called the WATER OF THE WORD.

Revelations says that we saints will overcome the beast by the Blood of the Lamb and by the testimony of Jesus………….When we speak the Word, “living water” pours forth from us, and we overcome evil “thru the water shaft”.

THE WATER SHAFT IS SYMBOLIC OF THE “WORD” FELLING BABYLON. PRAISE CHRIST!

GOD’S WORD DOES THE IMPOSSIBLE.

GOD’S WORD FELLS THE UNFELLABLE ENEMY!

 

All sinners live in (spiritual) Babylon. Rev17.

All saints live in (Spiritual) NEW JERUSALEM (THE MARRIAGE OF JESUS+CHURCH).

PRAISE CHRIST!

Persia captures Babylon

In 539 BC, the Neo-Babylonian Empire fell to Cyrus the Great, king of Persia, with a military engagement known as the Battle of Opis. The famed walls of Babylon were indeed impenetrable, with the only way into the city through one of its many gates or through the Euphrates, which ebbed beneath its thick walls. Metal gates at the river’s in-flow and out-flow prevented underwater intruders, if one could hold one’s breath to reach them. Cyrus (or his generals) devised a plan to use the Euphrates as the mode of entry to the city, ordering large camps of troops at each point and instructed them to wait for the signal. Awaiting an evening of a national feast among Babylonians (generally thought to refer to the feast of Belshazzar mentioned in Daniel V), Cyrus’ troops diverted the Euphrates river upstream, causing the Euphrates to drop to about ‘mid thigh level on a man’ or to dry up altogether. The soldiers marched under the walls through the lowered water. The Persian army conquered the outlying areas of the city’s interior while a majority of Babylonians at the city center were oblivious to the breach. The account was elaborated upon by Herodotus,[19] and is also mentioned by passages in the Hebrew Bible.[20][21]
