I Corinthians 15:51-54
51 Behold, I tell you a mystery: We shall not all sleep (or die), but we shall all be changed
52 in a moment, in the twinkling of an eye, at the last trumpet. For the trumpet will sound, and the dead will be raised incorruptible, and we shall be changed.
53 For this corruptible must put on incorruption, and this mortal must put on immortality.
54 So when this corruptible has put on incorruption, and this mortal has put on immortality, then shall be brought to pass the saying that is written: "Death is swallowed up in victory."
16 "This is the covenant that I will make with them after those days, says the LORD: I will put My laws into their hearts, and in their minds I will write them,"
5 And on her forehead a name was written: MYSTERY, BABYLON THE GREAT, THE MOTHER OF HARLOTS AND OF THE ABOMINATIONS OF THE EARTH.
It's all about them and their needs
. They will not move from their old ways and are a law unto themselves. By this I mean they have principles and agendas that sound good, but require little change of lifestyle
from the world's. She fits in with their culture and raises her family on human intellect. She is both good and evil like her husband
. She can appear as an angel of light, but at the same time be the physical manifestation of him as well. She is the leader on earth of every demon from hell.
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 So he carried me away in the Spirit into the wilderness. And I saw a woman sitting on a scarlet beast which was full of names of blasphemy, having seven heads and ten horns.
You know them, they dress up on Sunday, Babylon looks good
. She is rich. Her people buy her books, her videos, her crosses and jewelry with the Lord's name written on them, making them appear holy on the outside
while inside they have never left the world or its ways.
4 The woman was arrayed in purple and scarlet, and adorned with gold and precious stones and pearls, having in her hand a golden cup full of abominations and the filthiness of her fornication.
3 For all the nations have drunk of the wine of the wrath of her fornication, the kings of the earth (governments) have committed fornication with her, and the merchants of the earth have become rich through the abundance of her luxury."
God encourages these at Revelation 18:4 to "come out of her my people".
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.
The religious hate any truth that will take them from their comfort zone
. If they would only think, in that zone is sickness, cruelty, sadness, confusion and death. The Kingdom of God on the other hand is love, peace and joy in the Holy Spirit with no sickness, pain or sorrow. It's a simple choice, the Tree of Life (Jesus) or stay a part of the family tree of Good and Evil (Satan)
. Will we be a part of the first Adam or the last Adam? Will we choose the bondage of religion
or the freedom of the church glorious
? All creation is eagerly waiting
for the right choices to be made. Jesus said, "I am
, the Truth
. Babylon ridicules the ways
of God's people and rejects truth
that necessitates change. She picks it apart, looking for something to catch God's people wrong, just as she did the Lord Himself
. Babylon, through those that will not change, criticizes God's people that are carrying the precious end time message
that can protect them. She is therefore condemned to perish
, loses out on Kingdom Life
, and rejects its King. Humanity is very close
to coming full circle, returning to the original perfection. Sadly those that refuse change
will not be a part of this, they have been successfully assimilated into man's culture
and Satan wins.
22 Now it was the Feast of Dedication (Hanukkah) in Jerusalem, and it was winter.
23 And Jesus walked in the temple, in Solomon's porch.
27 To them God willed to make known what are the riches of the glory of this mystery among the Gentiles: which is Christ in you, the hope of glory.
