13 For you (Lucifer or Satan) have said in your heart: ‘I will ascend into heaven, I will exalt my throne above the stars of God; I will also sit on the mount of the congregation on the farthest sides of the north;
14 I will ascend above the heights of the clouds, I will be like the Most High.’
Revelation 18:2-3describes her perfectly!
2 And he cried mightily with a loud voice, saying, “Babylon the great(the name given to all the world's churches, secret societies, any form of religion, regardless of what or who they worship) 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.”
What can man do to remedy this? Nothing! Yes you read correctly, nothing! Understand, we cannot fix or change the world. Mankind has tried over and over and it just gets worse! Why, because God has condemned it! This world is not His, it is the handiwork of Satan. The world we live in is an abomination to this planet and all creation on it. God promised us He would destroy it! Mankind has already brought a curse against ourselves many times over by trying to rectify things ourselves.
Jeremiah 17:5reveals this truth.
5 Thus says the Lord: “Cursed is the man who trusts in man and makes flesh his strength, whose heart departs from the Lord. (pretty plain!)
So do we still want to look to the people of the world for answers to life's problems? Look at the example of King Josiah. All the kings before him were wicked. They served other gods and did evil in the sight of the Lord. God said He would destroy them and their land!
II Kings 22:16-17
16 “Thus says the Lord: ‘Behold, I will bring calamity on this placeandon its inhabitants—all the words of the book which the king of Judah has read—
17 because they have forsaken Me and burned incense to other gods, that they might provoke Me to anger with all the works of their hands. Therefore My wrath shall be aroused against this place and shall not be quenched.’”’ (His words will not come back void.)
Josiah thought he could change God's mind by doing all he could to restore true worship. He tore down the high places used to worship false gods, he held a large Passover feast, greater than any other celebrated before. He did away with all that practiced witchcraft, really tried his very best to fix things, restore things, and please God.
II Kings 23:26-27It did not work!
26 Neverthelessthe Lord did not turn from the fierceness of His great wrath, with which His anger was aroused against Judah, because of all the provocations with which Manasseh had provoked Him.
27 And the Lord said, “I will also remove Judah from My sight, as I have removed Israel, and will cast off this city Jerusalem which I have chosen, and the house of which I said, ‘My name shall be there.’”
II Kings 23:29
29 In his days Pharaoh Necho king of Egypt went to the aid of the king of Assyria, to the River Euphrates; and King Josiah went against him. And Pharaoh Necho killed himat Megiddo when he confronted him.
Romans 1:18backs our thinking.
18 For the wrath of God is revealed from heavenagainstall ungodliness and unrighteousness of men, who suppress the truth in unrighteousness(there will be a massive distinction between the righteous and the unrighteous),
Revelation 20:15reveals their fate.
15 And anyonenot found written in the Book of Lifewas cast into the lake of fire. (There is no forgiveness or resurrection from the lake of fire, it is a second death without the covering of the cross!)
II Peter 2:9
9 then the Lordknows how to deliver the godlyout of temptationsand to reserve the unjust under punishment for the day of judgment,
2 But to you who fear My namethe Sun of Righteousness shall arise with healing in His wings; and you shall go out and grow fatlike stall-fed calves.
3 You shall trample the wicked, for they shall be ashes under the soles of your feeton the day that I do this,” says the Lord of hosts
24 But He (Jesus), because He continues forever(is eternal), has an unchangeable priesthood(our only needed high priest).
25 Therefore He is also able to save to the uttermostthose who come to God through Him(here again we see we can do nothing without Him), since He always lives to make intercession for them(He agrees with us in prayer).
12 saying: “I will declare Your name to My brethren; in the midst of the assemblyI (Jesus) will sing praise to You.” (We battle through prayer and praise with the Lord holding the reins!)
I Peter 2:24speaks of Christ's sacrifice of Himself.
24 who Himselfbore our sins in His own body on the tree(cursed is the one hung on a tree, He took our place), that we, having died to sins, might live for righteousness—by whose stripes you were healed.
I Peter 1:23
23 having been born again, not of corruptible seed but incorruptible, through the word of God which lives and abides forever,
We are His victory!
A few years back, June 8th, 2011 to be specific, we and our readers cried out to God to set us free from the enemy and his world. The results were astounding! Truth was revealed that forever changed our thinking, our perspective on things and helped us to cope with the end time advancement of the enemy! We announced the time we would be crying out to God locally as well as to all the different time zones so we would be as one voice crying out to God from the earth, begging Him to intervene, save His people!
II Peter 3:13
13 Nevertheless we, according to His promise, look for new heavens and a new earth in which righteousness dwells. (All will be perfect and in right standing with God!)
Revelation 21:1, 4-5
1 Now I saw a new heaven and a new earth, for the first heaven and the first earth had passed away. Also there was no more sea(the sea is symbolic of the restless, lawless sea of humanity).
4 And God will wipe away every tear from their eyes; there shall be no more death, nor sorrow, nor crying. There shall be no more pain, for the former thingshave passed away.” (He will demolish, exterminate, destruct, utterly destroy all sin, lawlessness, along with those that walk in it!!)
5 Then He who sat on the thronesaid, “Behold, I make all things new.” And He said to me, “Write, for these words are true and faithful.”
In closing, the Feast of Hanukkah is coming friends, how perfect is the timing! The number three is the number of emphasis, so let us set up three different times we will cry out with one voice, bombard the heavenlies with our request for the end of the reign of Satan and to begin the destruction of this world! Let us make an earnest request to the Father's heart, “You set Your people free from Egypt and released them from Pharaoh as they cried out to You Father, You are not a respecter of persons, so set us free from the world and Satan and let the dawning of the new earth begin!!”
