Mystery Babylon: Come out of Her My People

Revelation 18:   After this I saw another angel coming down from heaven, having great authority, and the earth was made bright with his glory. And he called out with a mighty voice,

“Fallen, fallen is Babylon the great!
    She has become a dwelling place for demons,
a haunt for every unclean spirit,
    a haunt for every unclean bird,
    a haunt for every unclean and detestable beast.
For all nations have drunk[a]
    the wine of the passion of her sexual immorality,
and the kings of the earth have committed immorality with her,
    and the merchants of the earth have grown rich from the power of her luxurious living.”

Then I heard another voice from heaven saying,

“Come out of her, my people,
    lest you take part in her sins,
lest you share in her plagues;
for her sins are heaped high as heaven,
    and God has remembered her iniquities.

“Come out of he MY PEOPLE”

I have seen questions from believers asking “How will we be able to be safe from deception – when the antichrist is going to be able to perform so many miracles?” – “How will we be able to tell if he is actually God or not?”

In my opinion, it will be very easy to know whether or not one who claims to be messiah is or is-not — REGARDLESS of any amount of miracles performed or anything “messiah-like” presented to the masses. The scriptures plainly tell us so. “This same Jesus will return in like manner” is stated by the angels of God in Acts 1:6-11

So when they had come together, they asked him, “Lord, will you at this time restore the kingdom to Israel?” He said to them, “It is not for you to know times or seasons that the Father has fixed by his own authority. But you will receive power when the Holy Spirit has come upon you, and you will be my witnesses in Jerusalem and in all Judea and Samaria, and to the end of the earth.” And when he had said these things, as they were looking on, he was lifted up, and a cloud took him out of their sight. 10 And while they were gazing into heaven as he went, behold, two men stood by them in white robes, 11 and said, “Men of Galilee, why do you stand looking into heaven? This Jesus, who was taken up from you into heaven, will come in the same way as you saw him go into heaven.”

If we know what the scriptures say regarding Jesus’ return – you will know that there is absolutely no concern of being fooled. (paraphrasing) “Just as lightning flashes from east to west – so it shall be when the Son of Man returns” — if anyone tells you, “He is there in the desert – or here… ” do not believe them. (this can be found in Matthew 24)

His return will be heralded by a MULTITUDE of heavenly hosts (angels) in the sky.  It will not be a “quiet- hardly noticed” return! (This can be found in Revelation 1) — and we are told that when He appears that we will be changed – in the twinkling of an eye – and we shall rise to meet Him in the air – and we shall see Him as He truly is – and we shall be LIKE HIM (this can be found in 1st Corinthian 15 – around verse 50)

These and others like this – make it easy peasy to know whether it is HIM or not!   What may not be easy is withstanding the trials of the great tribulation.

Another thing to give VERY SERIOUS CONSIDERATION to -- and be forewarned, this is likely going to offend many - so PLEASE - just consider what I write here and please don't allow the offense to blind you.  The next few statements are not an attack on people's character or their intelligence - but we all need to give serious consideration to certain things that have been taught in our churches for years - that are going to have serious, implications in these last days.

One of the ways the scriptures describe those “who are His” – is a statement: “those who love His appearing…” (2nd Timothy 4) — When the last trump/trumpet (not to get into an Mandela Effect argument) – When that event occurs and the sign of the Son of Man appears in the sky.  The world will mourn and cry out “rocks hide us from the brightness of His appearing..” (stuff like that) — so – PLEASE – give consideration to this:

Does the world celebrate christmas and easter?   This isn’t a “trick question”.  All one has to do is watch TV around either holiday event.

The image above is a screen shot taken from CNN broadcasts that last all night during christmas. ‘Tracking Santa-Claus’ Route’ 

It’s obvious that THE WORLD CELEBRATES CHRISTMAS AND EASTER.   But we are told in the sriptures that “the world” will not love Jesus’ return. And it is obvious that most do not care to hear about the King of Kings and Lord of Lords.   So does anyone other than me see a blaring disconnect here????

The world celebrates christmas and easter – yet certainly does not love Jesus christ of Nazareth.  So it is safe to assume that neither holiday event has any connection to Jesus, because the world “luvs it some christmas and easter celebrationin”…

It does not matter what it means to you or I – the holidays and celebrations of this world are in no way connected to Him!   And yet so many of us cannot bear the thought of giving those things (OF THIS WORLD) up.  Does that cause anyone to pause and compel us to be a bit concerned ?  The scriptures say that “friendship with the world is enmity with God.”

I’m not stating this to offend anyone – but to WARN EVERYONE – every year those of us who claim Jesus christ, fall-in-line with an antichrist spirit and celebrate said spirit by participating in worldly celebrations.  We continue to make excuses in our hearts and minds and sometimes out loud.  And then we think that we will not be deceived when the actual person of antichrist comes on the scene ????? —

I know that what I am suggesting is a “hard thing” for some and maybe even too radical for others — but satan is turning up the heat in this world folks — if we can’t handle the idea of turning away from antichrist based holidays – what makes anyone think they are going to make it in the coming years of great tribulation?

Lions and Leopards and Bears – Oh My!

“Now the beast which I saw was like a leopard, his feet were like the feet of a bear, and his mouth like the mouth of a lion. The dragon gave him his power, his throne, and great authority.”  Revelation 13:2

Is there anyone reading this – that have never heard the terms “the mark of the beast” or “six, six, six” or how about the “false prophet and the anti-Christ”? I would bet that everyone has heard these terms, even folks who don’t read the Bible. These terms are theme fodder for all kinds of sci-fi and thriller genre movies and can even be heard on the History channel from time-to-time.

This is a video of the teaching that I announced in this column that week

 

Generally speaking you can find these subjects mentioned in the Bible in a book called “Revelation” or the “Apocalypse of John” – which are also subjects for many a scary movie or hyped-up History channel program.

Did you know that many of the details of these Books of the Bible which were prophetic in nature, written about two thousand years ago are almost all coming to fruition over the past few decades?

If I were to ask you what animal represents the United States –what would you say? An Eagle – I’m sure.

Russia is represented by the bear, England (Great Britain) a lion and Germany is represented by the leopard. (that is the name of their very advanced tanks – as a nod to their moniker).

The Beast of Revelation is described as having the feet of a bear, the body of a leopard and the mouth of a lion. This was written 2000 years ago. Recently, a United Nations resolution made English the world’s language? Hmmm – isn’t English the language of England?

Thursday, November 29th 2011 – marked a prophetic event that most are not even aware of.

The United Nations voted to give nation-state status to the Palestinians who occupy and live in Gaza and East Jerusalem. What is disturbing about this – those areas are currently (were) part of Israel. Now that the United Nations has proclaimed a Palestinian state, Israel is an occupying aggressor towards the newly established land of Palestine. At some point this could give the United Nations World Court a reason to bring charges of “war crimes” against Israel. Add to this scenario the Agenda 21 “Responsibility to Protect” and the UN would be inclined to send NATO troops into Israel to put a stop to the UN’s so called Israeli aggression.

“Oh! C’mon Dave…” you are probably thinking. “I haven’t heard any of this in the news.”

Of course you haven’t. The last thing the world’s leaders want is a fully informed public that is able to think critically.

I promise – I am not being cynical OR speaking exaggerations.  For the last 100 years the majority of Americans have been duped, kept in the dark, or otherwise deceived. Want to know more?  Read on….

The Bible (in Revelation) describes a future that has a one-world religion, a one-world monetary system and a one-world government. You can also find descriptions of much of our current and near-future world condition detailed in the Book of Daniel.

In summary, the one-world religion aspect describes a false prophet, who seems like a holy man of God, rises up from within a “beast” (form of government) and causes the whole world to follow after – or be led by – a man the Bible calls the anti-Christ. The anti-Christ (mis)leads the whole world through deception and flatteries and what appears to be the miraculous performed by the false prophet.

The one-world monetary system is just that;  a monetary exchange system that is used through-out the world. It is a system that uses a “mark” that is on the hand or forehead. Without it you cannot buy or sell. If you cannot buy, you can’t eat. If you cannot sell, you can’t work. Oh! And by the way – did you know that the AFFORDABLE HEALTH-CARE Bill (now a law – House Resolution 3962) has requirements for implementing an RFID chip in all health care recipients. The chip will help manage all patients’ data and also make allowances for people to pay instantly at the time of service. By using the RFID chip, the government will have instant access to your bank accounts. This will help to make our healthcare system very efficient and cost effective. Isn’t that terrific?  I’m so glad we have the government to help us.

The “Registry” (that’s what it’s called in the law) that links all of your personal data to the device is detailed on page 1505 of HR3962. The real-time payment (or near real-time as it states in the document) is mentioned on page 77.  Oh! – and the chip is also to be used for surveillance.

Many probably think that all of this religious mumbo-jumbo is either of no concern and I’m just a Jesus freak conspiracy kook or you think that it is all a hopeless situation when it does come to pass so why even bother thinking about it?

Look at it this way.  If you had the task of going through a dangerous mine-field (which is a pretty good metaphor for living these days) don’t you think it would be easier if you had a map of the location of all of the mines?

This is why we must diligently read our Bibles and we must be fully informed and aware of what is going on in the world. But we cannot depend on the mainstream giants of media to inform us properly. We must do our own homework, which is no easy task. Especially when we are 100 years behind those who began all of these global governance efforts. I have been keenly aware of a few words from the Book of Daniel lately. It is regarding the end-times and really relates to what is going on in the world right now:

“Those who do wickedly against the covenant he shall corrupt with flattery; but the people who know their God shall be strong, and carry out great exploits.  And those of the people who understand shall instruct many” Daniel 11:32

That is what I am hoping to do in this column, when I attempt to inform you about technology and how it relates to our lives. Technology is an amazing tool, but in the hands of those who wish to do us harm, and being used against a people who generally do not understand its workings – it enables its wielders to do much harm against us.

Want to know more? Don’t forget to come out on December 11th and 12th and I’ll explain a little more in detail some of what is written here and God willing – give you instruction on how you can use technology to better inform yourself, your family and friends. It will be at the Fountain of Life church of God just down the road from the Chester County Detention Center on Dawson Drive.
