211.12: Isaiah 13-14: When Will the Epic Fall of Babylon and the Evil One Happen?

Isaiah now turns to warnings and prophecies of the downfalls of Babylon, the Philistines, the Assyrians and Lucifer himself. In the next few chapters (13-23), he prophesies against the nations. As you will see, his writing is very descriptive, very colorful, very direct. He, too, like the other prophets we’ve studied, doesn’t beat around the bush. God doesn’t beat around the bush. He means what He says.

First up is Babylon. Isaiah wrote this c. 699 BC, 160 years before the first fall of Babylon happened in 539 BC. Remember, the Old Testament prophecies were a 2-fold fulfillment — short-term and long-term. The first fall was in 539 BC, when King Cyrus and the Medes and Persians came. We’ll dig into that story when we get to the Book of Daniel.

Furthermore, God’s capital city was Jerusalem. Satan’s capital city was and will be Babylon. From the time of Isaiah’s prophecy, it took 100 years for Babylon to become the next superpower nation.

Above all, understand that God sees the future as if it were the past. God’s been there already. Bible prophecy is better than a fortune teller, or a horoscope, because it’s certain to happen. If God said it, it will happen. Curious? Let’s dig in…
