Babylon is Fallen, is Fallen!
Revelation 14 Isaiah 14
And there followed another angel, saying, Babylon is fallen, is fallen,
that great city, because she made all nations drink of the wine of the wrath of her fornication.
How art thou fallen from heaven, O Lucifer, son of the morning! how art thou cut
down to the ground, which didst weaken the nations! For thou hast said in thine heart, I will
ascend into heaven, I will exalt my throne above the stars of God: I will sit also upon the
mount of the congregation, in the sides of the north: I will ascend above the heights of the
clouds; I will be like the most High.
This verse links strongly with Isaiah 14 and the Fall of Lucifer,
and it manifests with extreme clarity in World History with the Fall of Papal Supremacy in the
The verse from Revelation 14 is actually a quote of Isaiah 21 and so is not geometrically
integrated with that verse. But its correlation
with the meaning of Nun as expressed in the alphabetic Psalms and Isaiah 14 is extremely profound.
The Talmud teaches (Berachoth 4b) that the Letter Nun represents the
(Nephalim, Fallen Ones). This tradition is also found
in the Zohar, and is often repeated in Jewish Homilies. It is deeply integrated with Scripture
in many ways. I begin with the Rabinnical explanation
for an anomoly found in the Alphabetic Psalm 145,
in which the verse corresponding to Nun is missing.
The Rabbis teach that the Nun is missing because it alludes to the fall of Israel, but that it is
included as a prophecy of the rise of Israel in the next verse, corresponding to Samekh
The LORD upholdeth (Samekh) all that fall
(Nephalim), and raiseth up all those that be bowed down.
Just as Gimel and Dalet are linked together as
Giver and Poor, so Nun and Samekh are linked as
Fallen and Supporter! And not only is the alpahabet
linked together in this chain of meanings, but
the meanings then manifest in the themes of the Books of the Bible! Glory to God!
