Daily Devotional, Year 2 – NOVEMBER 17

.

Come Out of Her, My People! Part 26 “Which Spirit Will You Choose?”

.

.

 

.

.

The great message now being trumpeted around the world is this…“And I heard anhttp://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:Tissot_The_Flight_of_the_Prisoners.jpgother voice from Heaven, saying, Come out of her, My people, that ye be not partakers of her sins, and that ye receive not of her plagues.” Revelation 18:4

.

Yes, God is now calling His people to come out of Babylon, the world, and out of Babylon the worldly Church. Hence the expression, “Babylon the great is fallen, is fallen,” proclaiming that Babylon is twice fallen.

.

And while we cannot come completely out of the world, we can definitely come completely out of the fallen, apostate churches.

BABYLON, A SPIRITUAL CONDITION

Now this great truth about twice fallen Babylon, and our duty to come out from among them, can be seen from several different vantage points.

.

But today’s devotional will attempt to view Babylon from a somewhat different vantage point to give greater clarity as to just what it means to, “Come out of her (Babylon), My people!”

.

Yes, to come out of Babylon is more than merely physically leaving the fallen churches. It is a spiritual condition!

TWO SPIRITS IN THE WORLD

 

.

http://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:Anger_during_a_protest_by_David_Shankbone.jpgNow this website has a number of articles and devotionals which speak about the fact that there exists two entirely different spirits in the world…

.

Listen…“They (Antichrists) are of the world: therefore speak they of the world, and the world heareth them. We are of God: he that knoweth God heareth us; he that is not of God heareth not us. Hereby know we the spirit of truth, and the spirit of error.” 1st John 4:5, 6

.

So this above passage speaks of, “the Spirit of Truth”, but also, “the spirit of error”.

ANTICHRIST SPIRIT NOT RECOGNIZED

.

Now it is no big secret within the church-world, that Christians are to be indwelt by the Holy Spirit. But for some reason, it is not very well understood that the people of the world are indwelt by an  UNholy Spirit. Yes, it seems to be a very well-guarded secret that the people of the world are indwelt by the spirit of Antichrist…

.

Listen again to 1st John…“Hereby know we the spirit of truth, and the spirit of error.” 1st John 4:6

.

So the Bible reveals these two spirits: the spirit of truth and the spirit of error…

ANTICHRIST IS THE WORLDLY-MINDED

http://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:People_on_Times_Square.jpg

.

Listen again to 1st John…“And every spirit that confesseth not that Jesus Christ is come in the flesh is not of God: and this is that [spirit] of antichrist, whereof ye have heard that it should come; and even now already is it in the world.” 1st John 4:3

.

Yes, the spirit of Antichrist is in the world…

ANTICHRIST, AN INDWELLING SPIRIT

.

Now listen to this next verse from Ephesians 2:2…“Wherein in time past ye walked according to the course of this world, according to the prince of the power of the air, the spirit that now works in the children of disobedience:”

.

So here it says that it is the, “prince of the power of the air, that spirit that now works in the children of disobedience”, that governs the course of this present, evil world: a spirit entity which we all were indwelt with, prior to our Salvation.

VACATING BABYLON, A CHANGE OF SPIRITS

.

So then, by simple deduction, it becomes clear that coming out of spiritual Babylon is a matter of being indwelt by the spirit of truth, and not by the spirit of error.

.

And so, by receiving the gift of the Holy Spirit, we no longer will walk according to the course of this present world. And by being indwelt by the Spirit of Christ, we will no longer be indwelt by the spirit of Antichrist.

.

.

.

.

.

TWO SPIRITS 

.

Yes, the big point to today’s devotional is that there are two spirits in this world. And either we are of one spirit or we are of the other spirit. But we cannot be void of both spirits. That’s not an option!

.

Jesus made that clear in the following statement…“He that is not with me is against me; and he that gathereth not with me scattereth abroad.” Matthew 12:30

.

And so, being held captive in Babylon is actually a spiritual condition…

SATAN’S PRISON-HOUSE OF SIN

Listen as Paul reveals more about this captivity…“In meekness instructing those that oppose themselves; if God peradventure will give them repentance to the acknowledging of the truth; And that they may recover themselves out of the snare of the devil, who are taken captive by him at his will.” 2nd Timothy 2:25, 26

.

So here is seen the spiritual prison-house in which Satan holds all humanity captive. And as it says here, only God can give such prisoners freedom from this satanic captivity.

.

And so, coming out of Babylon is the product of God’s grace, as He frees us from the spiritual bondage brought on by, “the god of this world”, the Devil!

TODAY’S FEATURED HEAVENLY SIGN

LOCATING THE DRAGON

.

(REVELATION 12 DRAGON IS NOT DRACO!)

.http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:DracoCC.jpg

First, let it be stated, that this Dragon Constellation is not the same constellation commonly referred to as “Draco” (photo to right is Draco).

.

This Revelation 12 Dragon from Signs Of Heaven, has not been previously recognized. But you will discover that it is a very intricate and complex constellation, once you are comfortable locating it (picture below, right).

 REVELATION 12 DRAGON  

Revelation 12 Dragon w/text

.

The star-charts below (below, right) are from Wikipedia and are combined into one chart to show these three constellations, which the editor has sketched over with these three constellations, as they appear when in the west. Hopefully, this will be an assist in locating these constellations in the night-sky.

LOCATION…

Wikipedia star-charts winter constellation in West

.

The Revelation 12 Dragon Constellation can be located by finding Orion in winter months. The Dragon is to Orion’s left, and the Dragon’s mouth is right next to Orion’s shield. This Dragon’s mouth is the V-like constellation The Hyades Cluster, which is also known as the head of Taurus the Bull. The Dragon’s tail-tip is Pleiades and the lower shaft of his tail is partly of Aries  and Pisces. Then with aid of a dark and starry night, you may begin to connect the mouth and the tail with a very long body in an oval shape. The front and back legs are made of a few stars: the front legs partially of stars from Taurus . The back legs and rear fin are made of 6 stars from the Cetus Constellation.

.

BODY HARD TO SEE

.

The long oval-shaped body has relatively few stars, but can been seen, howbeit with a dark, starry night. The four stars of the front fins are made partially of Taurus .
