“What Does The Bible Say About The Broken Supply Chain???”

🇺🇳Mystery Babylon Will Fall🇺🇳

Some times we become instantly aware of something we never thought of before. Such is the case with global shipping. Probably very few people were aware of the massive sea traffic, and the monster cargo vessels that carried global cargo across the seven seas. And then it happened. Because of subtle changes in world society, including [COVID–19], a global phenomenon appeared in the media as these vessels dropped anchors in the harbors of the world. There they drifted, unable to find those who would unload and transport their huge loads. The Port of Los Angeles was a regular television feature, as panicked announcers told us to shop for Christmas early. Fully–loaded ships floated as far as the eye could see…

And that’s only the beginning. Everything from building materials to cars to tiny bottles of eye drops became equally locked in those giant shipping containers. The world’s biggest traffic jam is affecting everything and everyone on Earth…

Surprisingly, if you read the Bible carefully, you’ll find some thought–provoking references that speak of global shipping. One is found in the Psalms. It features the hazards of global shipping. {Psalm 107} brings us a view from ~GOD’s~ perspective. Its message: The shipping business is best achieved under His blessing:

“They that go down to the sea in ships, That do business in great waters; These see the works of the LORD, And his wonders in the deep. For he commandeth, and raiseth the stormy wind, Which lifteth up the waves thereof. They mount up to the heaven, they go down again to the depths: Their soul is melted because of trouble. They reel to and fro, and stagger like a drunken man, And are at their wits' end. Then they cry unto the LORD in their trouble, And he bringeth them out of their distresses. He maketh the storm a calm, So that the waves thereof are still. Then are they glad because they be quiet; So he bringeth them unto their desired haven. Oh that men would praise the LORD for his goodness, And for his wonderful works to the children of men!!!”

{‭‭Psalm‬ ‭107:23-31‬ ‭KJV‬‬}

The closing verse of this Psalm sounds a warning that takes us all the way to the end of the Book of Revelation, in which we witness the destruction of global shipping under the judgment of ~GOD~:

“And after these things I saw another angel come down from heaven, having great power; and the earth was lightened with his glory. And he cried mightily with a strong voice, saying, Babylon the great is fallen, is fallen, and is become the habitation of devils, and the hold of every foul spirit, and a cage of every unclean and hateful bird. For all nations have drunk of the wine of the wrath of her fornication, and the kings of the earth have committed fornication with her, and the merchants of the earth are waxed rich through the abundance of her delicacies. And I heard another voice from heaven, saying, Come out of her, my people, that ye be not partakers of her sins, and that ye receive not of her plagues. For her sins have reached unto heaven, and God hath remembered her iniquities. Reward her even as she rewarded you, and double unto her double according to her works: in the cup which she hath filled fill to her double. How much she hath glorified herself, and lived deliciously, so much torment and sorrow give her: for she saith in her heart, I sit a queen, and am no widow, and shall see no sorrow. Therefore shall her plagues come in one day, death, and mourning, and famine; and she shall be utterly burned with fire: for strong is the Lord God who judgeth her. And the kings of the earth, who have committed fornication and lived deliciously with her, shall bewail her, and lament for her, when they shall see the smoke of her burning, standing afar off for the fear of her torment, saying, Alas, alas, that great city Babylon, that mighty city! for in one hour is thy judgment come. And the merchants of the earth shall weep and mourn over her; for no man buyeth their merchandise any more: the merchandise of gold, and silver, and precious stones, and of pearls, and fine linen, and purple, and silk, and scarlet, and all thyine wood, and all manner vessels of ivory, and all manner vessels of most precious wood, and of brass, and iron, and marble, and cinnamon, and odours, and ointments, and frankincense, and wine, and oil, and fine flour, and wheat, and beasts, and sheep, and horses, and chariots, and slaves, and souls of men. And the fruits that thy soul lusted after are departed from thee, and all things which were dainty and goodly are departed from thee, and thou shalt find them no more at all. The merchants of these things, which were made rich by her, shall stand afar off for the fear of her torment, weeping and wailing, and saying, Alas, alas, that great city, that was clothed in fine linen, and purple, and scarlet, and decked with gold, and precious stones, and pearls! For in one hour so great riches is come to nought. And every shipmaster, and all the company in ships, and sailors, and as many as trade by sea, stood afar off, and cried when they saw the smoke of her burning, saying, What city is like unto this great city! And they cast dust on their heads, and cried, weeping and wailing, saying, Alas, alas, that great city, wherein were made rich all that had ships in the sea by reason of her costliness! for in one hour is she made desolate. Rejoice over her, thou heaven, and ye holy apostles and prophets; for God hath avenged you on her. And a mighty angel took up a stone like a great millstone, and cast it into the sea, saying, Thus with violence shall that great city Babylon be thrown down, and shall be found no more at all. And the voice of harpers, and musicians, and of pipers, and trumpeters, shall be heard no more at all in thee; and no craftsman, of whatsoever craft he be, shall be found any more in thee; and the sound of a millstone shall be heard no more at all in thee; and the light of a candle shall shine no more at all in thee; and the voice of the bridegroom and of the bride shall be heard no more at all in thee: for thy merchants were the great men of the earth; for by thy sorceries were all nations deceived. And in her was found the blood of prophets, and of saints, and of all that were slain upon the earth…”

{‭‭Revelation‬ ‭18:1-24‬ ‭KJV‬‬}

Here—just preceding Christ’s Second Coming—the world–wide merchandising system of finance, trade, and travel crashes and burns!!!

There is coming a time when money doesn’t make the world go around!!!

So, the next time you see those container vessels waiting to be unloaded, think about their ultimate fate…
