I’ve got a question for you. What do you think our bodies are worth, in monetary value? Do you know that your Bible speaks of a time when they will be traded in a great marketing system that will dominate this entire world? Even as I speak, this world trading combine is coming into power.
“Babylon the Great”
It’s not something new; but a continuation of a powerful RELIGEO/POLITICAL SYSTEM that began all the way back to the time after the flood of Noah. The founder of this SYSTEM was a great grandson of Noah, named Nimrod, who founded a city called Babylon. Nimrod was a rebel against God and set himself up as a leader, (along with his wife, Semiramis, who is identified “as a goddess, the daughter of the fish god Altargatis, and herself connected with the doves of Ishtar or Astarte.”: from Encyclopedia Britannica.)
The SYSTEM emerges again, in the New Testament, posing as the Christian church, under the directorship of one “Simon” (Magus) Acts 8:9 “But there was a certain man, called Simon, which before in the same city used sorcery, and bewitched the people of Samaria, giving out that himself was some great one:” (Read on through verse 24, to get the full account.) Later, he pretended to be the Apostle Peter. That church took the title of the “Universal” or Catholic Church. This false, Christian church continues in our modern age and has great influence on the nations, especially those of Europe. Within the confines of that area and dominated by the “great city” of Rome, we see this system beginning to take shape. It poses a great danger to world peace and prosperity! Revelation 17:5 refers to this SYSTEM,“And upon her (symbol of a church) forehead was a name written, MYSTERY BABYLON THE GREAT, THE MOTHER OF HARLOTS (other “daughters” have come out of her in “protest” and follow the“mother’s” teachings!) AND ABOMINATIONS OF THE EARTH. 8. And the beast that thou sawest was, and is not; and shall ascend out of the bottomless pit, and shall go into perdition: and they that dwell on the earth shall wonder, (be perplexed) whose names were not written in the book of life (not true Christians) from the foundation of the world, when they behold the beast that was, and is not, and yet is. 12. And the ten horns which thou sawest are ten kings (rulers), which have no kingdom as yet; but receive power as kings one hour with the beast.13. These have one mind, and shall give their power and strength unto the beast (a coming “Hitler type” dictator). 14. These shall make war with the Lamb, (Notice the time setting-- At the return of Jesus Christ to this earth!) And the Lamb shall overcome them: for He is Lord of lords, and King of kings: and they that are with Him are called, and chosen, and faithful.”
This “system” went underground and has been hidden from view, since World War II.
But if you are watching this European combine, uniting again, and have the Spiritual eyes to see, you will understand how that these several nations will condense to ten nations or groups of nations. They began as a trading union, E.C.U. , but, recently have become politically united; and due to certain circumstances, will, in the near future, form into a powerful MILITARY MACHINE, that will ignite WORLD WAR III. (This will bring on the “great tribulation” that Christ foretold in Matthew 24:21 and the Prophet Joel, prophesied in Joel 2:2.)
“Body Parts for Sale”
Some of the most horrible practices that you can imagine will be taking place during this time of “tribulation” or “trial” that is going to happen to humanity during this period of time. It will result in the conquering of modern Israelite nations! It will include more than just the Jewish people! Along with them, will be other nations of this world that can be proven, from your Bible, to be descended from the Patriarch Jacob or Israel. (This is another subject matter, but Israel placed his name on the two sons of Joseph-- Ephraim and Manasseh (Genesis 48:13-20).
Believe it or not, these two sons can be traced to be the two modern nations of the U.S. of America and the British people.) So, the heaviest burden of trouble will fall on these people.
Jeremiah 30:7 “Alas! for that day is great, so that none is like it; it is even the time of Jacob’s trouble; but he shall be saved out of it.” Revelation 18:2 “And he cried mightily with a strong voice, saying, Babylon the great is fallen, is fallen, and is become the habitation of devils (demons), and the hold of every foul spirit, and a cage of every unclean and hateful bird. 3. For all nations have drunk of the wrath of her fornication, and the kings of the earth have committed fornication (had illegal agreements between church and state) with her, and the merchants are waxed rich through the abundance of her delicacies. 11. And the merchants of the earth shall weep and mourn over her; for no man buyeth their merchandise any more: 12 The merchandise of gold, and silver, and precious stones ---13. ---and beasts, and sheep, and horses, and chariots (probably autos), and slaves, and souls of men. 15. These merchants of these things, which were made rich by her, shall stand afar off for the fear of her torment, weeping and wailing.”
Did you catch that? Some of their “merchandise” consists of slaves and souls of men! What does this mean? From “The Companion Bible”, I found that “slaves”, literally means “bodies”, from the Gr. “Soma”. “Souls” are from the Gr. “Psuche”, meaning “persons of men” or simply “men”. So why are these “merchants of the earth” trading in bodies? It must be very profitable!
These procedures of marketing cadaver or dead body parts for the medical profession and their patients are already a very large “tissue and body parts” business!
(From Newspaper Article, “Infection prompts tissue recall.”)
“A Minnesota patient apparently was infected with an unusual germ from cadaver tissue used during routine surgery - a discovery that has led the nation’s largest tissue bank to ask 750 hospitals around the country to return 2,400 tendons and other body parts as a precaution.”
“A three month investigation by the Associated Press, published in June (2006), detailed problems that can arise from cadaver tissue in more than a million procedures each year in the United States, especially knee and back surgeries. Musculoskeletal Transplant, of Edison, N.J. reports,”In more than 20 years of supplying 2.7 million pieces of bone, skin and other tissues, this is the first reported infection”, said spokesman Cindy Gordon.
So you see, these procedures have been going on for quite some time. And, there have been other reports written about this. The Wall Street Journal had a recent article: “China Rethinks Fairness of “transplant tourism”, with the sub-caption, “foreigners pay more for scarce organs as global debate climbs.” One quote was, “Some doctors, both inside and outside of China, say the criteria are often bent in China for rich patients, which leads in turn to high failure rates for the operations.” These articles corroborate, that even today, in “so-called” peaceful times, mankind would be participating in these barbaric procedures!
Your Bible foretold these very things that would be happening in our day, as we read there in Rev. 17 &18. Human greed plays an important part in their evil plans. And we, as God’s people, should be rejoicing over the total destruction of this evil system that has even resorted to trading in human bodies!
We’ll have time to quickly turn to a parallel account of this trading conglomerate, in the O.T., where it is referred to as Tyrus. Ezek. 27:3 “And say unto Tyrus, O thou that art situated at the entry of the sea, which art a merchant of the people for many isles, Thus saith the LORD God,; O Tyrus, thou hast said, I am of perfect beauty.” (Read verses 5 through the end of the chapter to learn of the merchandise that was being traded, and also, you can determine what nations were their trading partners. Some of these nations can be determined by knowing the modern names of the nations mentioned, but others have kept their original names. For instance, in Verse 7, Egypt is mentioned; Verse 16, we find Syria; Verse 17, “Judah, and the land of Israel, they were your merchants (Including the U.S.A. and Britain, as I explained; Ver.18, Damascus; Ver.21, Arabia. In the modern names, we can identify Persia as Iran, Phut, probably India, Asshur is Germany, Togarmah may be Spain, Javan, probably Japan, etc. But notice, the reaction to this system’s demise, is the same as we saw in Rev. 18. Ezekiel 27:30 “---,and shall cry bitterly, and cast dust upon their heads---31. ---they shall weep for thee with bitterness of heart and bitter wailing.” But even this cannot be equated or imagined as to the full extent of the horror that’s ahead!
I’m speaking of a coming HOLOCOST THAT WILL PALE INTO INSIGNIFICANCE the one that took place during WW II. This one will involve HUNDREDS OF MILLIONS BEING SLAIN OR DEPORTD TO OTHER NATIONS, AS SLAVE LABORERS! When Jesus Christ said this would be a time like no other in the history of mankind, HE MEANT IT! And if He did not intervene in the affairs of men, no one would be saved (alive, physically)! Matthew 24:22 “And except those days were shortened (by Divine intervention), there should no flesh be saved: but for the elect’s sake (true Christians) those days shall be shortened.”
Yes, this wicked system that has ruled over this world, with it’s untold wealth and power, is going to meet its end, at the return of the Great Jesus Christ to establish His Kingdom. Revelation 17:14 “These shall make war with the Lamb, and the Lamb will overcome them, for he is Lord of lords and King of kings?18. And the woman whom you saw is that great city which reigns over the kings of the earth.”
The End of the false religious system and the beast power that has gained control over much of the earth’s nations, through trading practices and later military might is near! The Beginning, of a New World Government, ushered in by the Great, Living Jesus Christ is just around the corner. Pray for that Day!
