One day soon, God is going to judge a place called "Babylon".
So complete is His sentence upon this "great prostitute" that we are told she "shall not be found anymore" (Rev 18:4).
Before this judgment occurs, God issues a call for His people to abandon this place. They are instructed to flee out of her so that when the judgment comes, they will not suffer the terrible consequences along with the unrighteous.
Therefore, it is essential for every believer in Jesus Christ to understand in the light of God's word just what and where this Babylon is!
"Truly, truly I say to you, unless a grain of wheat falls into the earth and dies, it remains by itself, alone. But if it dies, it produces much fruit!
He who loves his soul life, will have it destroyed. But he who has a deep aversion to his soul life in this world, will have it preserved [through transformation] into the eternal life of God. John 12:24-25
