God recently broke my heart when He revealed to me that most contemporary churches are little Towers of Babel. They are monuments men build to themselves where the carnal gather together to make a name for themselves (Genesis 11:1-9). They are not real churches where Christians gather together to magnify the name of Christ. For instance, today's churchgoers often boast about and glory in their "church," but seldom boast about the cross or glory in Christ (Galatians 6:14). They brag about their church's magnificent edifice, their pastor's eloquence, their entertaining church services, or their amusement park like children's program, but seldom speak a word about their Savior.
Like our contemporary churches, our country can also be a Tower of Babel. For instance, consider how many Americans boast about and glory in our country and how few boast about the cross and glory in Christ. Even America's evangelicals appear to be far more passionate about their political activism and getting candidates elected than they are about preaching the Gospel and exalting Christ.
I believe the above explains why all of Heaven breaks out in "Hallelujahs" when America—Mystery Babylon the Great—falls in the book of Revelation (Revelation 19:1-6). There is a glorious day coming when there will be no more Babylons or Towers of Babel—countries or so-called churches where men gather together to build monuments to themselves and make a name for themselves. Instead, there will only be the true church of Christ—the Lamb's wife—where all true Christians will gather together to forever magnify the name of Christ (Revelation 19:7-9)! Then, unlike today, the earth will be filled with the glory of God alone (Habakkuk 2:14).
