The Lord tells us in Amos 3:7 that before He does anything here on Earth, He first reveals it to His prophets. The Bible is loaded with prophecy that has come true and even prophetic word that tells us what will happen in the future.
7 Surely the Lord God does nothing,
Unless He reveals His secret to His servants the prophets.
Below is an excerpt from a prophetic word on Z3News.com >>>
Destruction Coming to New York City in Two Phases
“The gates to the city will be burned to the ground. What are the gates to New York City? She has a gateway by sea, her name is Babylon.
And what is the shining crown of the nation of Babylon? It is New York City. So first you will witness the gate to New York City, and then you will witness the entire city being destroyed. These are two separate events.
I am telling you this now, so you will be able to tell those who remain to leave. Once they see the gateway burned, they must leave.”

Notice the 4 words in bold font: Gates, City, Sea, Babylon
In the Bible, these 4 words have both literal and spiritual (symbolic) meanings. You already know the literal meanings, and here are the symbolic meanings:
- “Gates” are symbolic of places of government, of teaching (schools) and of business. Also remember that in the Bible there are many references to the “Gates” of the City.
- “City” is symbolic of the “Way of the People”. Their Way of Life. A group of people living in like manner.
- “Sea” is symbolic of the people following the way of the world which follows their own way and NOT God’s way of Righteousness, Wisdom and Peace. They do whatever they want. Their way is the wide-path of destruction because they do not follow God.
- “Babylon” in this case is symbolic of the modern-day Babylon described in Revelation 18 which is the “NWO” which rules the world (British Crown, USA, Inc., Vatican, FIAT money [FAKE – no gold or silver], Financial Systems based on FIAT money, almost all Newspapers, Media and News channels across the whole nation owned by just 6 Corporations, etc, etc, etc.).
In this prophetic word from God He says destruction is coming to the “Gates” of New York City because she is a “shining crown of the nation of Babylon”. Then He tells them to leave!
When I think of the way of New York City, I think of greed, love of money and wealth, materialism, corruption, pride, sin, etc. I think of the movie “Wall Street” with Michael Douglas playing the role of “Gordon Gekko” and Charlie Sheen as “Bud Fox“.
The Lord speaks in His Pure Language (which to us is parables and symbolism), so what He is probably saying to the people of New York City is that they need to leave their lifestyle of:
Am I 100% positive that this prophetic word really came from God?
Am I 100% positive that destruction will come to the “Gates” and “City” of New York City which is the shining crown of the modern-day “Babylon”?
No, but I think that God does NOT approve of their way and I would not be surprised if it did happen because of what we are told in Revelation 18!
Revelation 18 (NKJV) – The Fall of Babylon the Great
18 After these things I saw another angel coming down from heaven, having great authority, and the earth was illuminated with his glory. 2 And he cried mightily with a loud voice, saying, “Babylon the great is fallen, is fallen, and has become a dwelling place of demons, a prison for every foul spirit, and a cage for every unclean and hated bird! 3 For all the nations have drunk of the wine of the wrath of her fornication, the kings of the earth have committed fornication with her, and the merchants of the earth have become rich through the abundance of her luxury.”
4 And I heard another voice from heaven saying, “Come out of her, my people, lest you share in her sins, and lest you receive of her plagues. 5 For her sins have reached to heaven, and God has remembered her iniquities. 6 Render to her just as she rendered to you, and repay her double according to her works; in the cup which she has mixed, mix double for her. 7 In the measure that she glorified herself and lived luxuriously, in the same measure give her torment and sorrow; for she says in her heart, ‘I sit as queen, and am no widow, and will not see sorrow.’ 8 Therefore her plagues will come in one day—death and mourning and famine. And she will be utterly burned with fire, for strong is the Lord God who judges her.
The World Mourns Babylon’s Fall
9 “The kings of the earth who committed fornication and lived luxuriously with her will weep and lament for her, when they see the smoke of her burning, 10 standing at a distance for fear of her torment, saying, ‘Alas, alas, that great city Babylon, that mighty city! For in one hour your judgment has come.’
11 “And the merchants of the earth will weep and mourn over her, for no one buys their merchandise anymore: 12 merchandise of gold and silver, precious stones and pearls, fine linen and purple, silk and scarlet, every kind of citron wood, every kind of object of ivory, every kind of object of most precious wood, bronze, iron, and marble; 13 and cinnamon and incense, fragrant oil and frankincense, wine and oil, fine flour and wheat, cattle and sheep, horses and chariots, and bodies and souls of men. 14 The fruit that your soul longed for has gone from you, and all the things which are rich and splendid have gone from you, and you shall find them no more at all. 15 The merchants of these things, who became rich by her, will stand at a distance for fear of her torment, weeping and wailing, 16 and saying, ‘Alas, alas, that great city that was clothed in fine linen, purple, and scarlet, and adorned with gold and precious stones and pearls! 17 For in one hour such great riches came to nothing.’ Every shipmaster, all who travel by ship, sailors, and as many as trade on the sea, stood at a distance 18 and cried out when they saw the smoke of her burning, saying, ‘What is like this great city?’
19 “They threw dust on their heads and cried out, weeping and wailing, and saying, ‘Alas, alas, that great city, in which all who had ships on the sea became rich by her wealth! For in one hour she is made desolate.’
20 “Rejoice over her, O heaven, and you holy apostles and prophets, for God has avenged you on her!”
Finality of Babylon’s Fall
21 Then a mighty angel took up a stone like a great millstone and threw it into the sea, saying, “Thus with violence the great city Babylon shall be thrown down, and shall not be found anymore. 22 The sound of harpists, musicians, flutists, and trumpeters shall not be heard in you anymore. No craftsman of any craft shall be found in you anymore, and the sound of a millstone shall not be heard in you anymore. 23 The light of a lamp shall not shine in you anymore, and the voice of bridegroom and bride shall not be heard in you anymore. For your merchants were the great men of the earth, for by your sorcery all the nations were deceived. 24 And in her was found the blood of prophets and saints, and of all who were slain on the earth.”
