Daily Devotional, Year 3 – January 15

Revelation 18:2: “A Cage of Every Unclean & Hateful Bird!”

.

.

.

.

.

“And he (the mighty angel) cried mightily

with a strong voice, saying,

Babylon the great is fallen, is fallen,

and is become the habitation of devils,

and the hold of every foul spirit,

and a cage of every unclean and hateful bird.”

Revelation 18:2

.

.

For instance, in the 2nd verse it says…“And he (the angel) cried mightily with a strong voice, saying, Babylon the great is fallen, is fallen, and is become the habitation of devils, and the hold of every foul spirit, and a cage of every unclean and hateful bird.” Revelation 18:2

.

Now here it says that this mystery harlot city is, “a cage of every unclean and hateful bird.”

So, what in the world could this be speaking of? “A cage of every unclean and hateful bird!?!”

FALSE TEACHERS

.

Well, actually, this is one of the more easily deciphered clues as to just what or who this mystery harlot city is speaking of.

.

If we simply follow the biblical rule of interpretation, comparing spiritual things with spiritual, and line upon line, we find a verse in Jeremiah that explains what this cage is really all about.

.

Listen…“For among My people are found wicked men: they lay wait, as he that setteth snares; they set a trap, they catch men. AS A CAGE FULL OF BIRDS, so are their houses full of deceit: therefore they are become great, and waxen rich. They are waxen fat, they shine: yea, they overpass the deeds of the wicked: they judge not the cause, the cause of the fatherless, yet they prosper; and the right of the needy do they not judge.” Jeremiah 5:26-28

.

Here is a prophecy regarding wicked men among God’s apostate people of Jerusalem. These wicked men are special deceivers of Satan, who are crept in unawares; who lay snares for God’s professed people.

APOSTATE LEADERS

.

So now we see just who this mystery harlot is: Jerusalem of old! Yes, God calls His beloved city a harlot several times in Scripture.

.

And so, this, “cage of every unclean and hateful bird”, is speaking of the false teachers false shepherds who lead astray God’s people.

.

Listen again…“O My people, they which lead thee cause thee to err, and destroy the way of thy paths.” Isaiah 3:12

.

Here again, this above verse clearly defines who leads God’s people astray: “they which lead thee”!

TWO JERUSALEMS

Now of course, Paul speaks about the two portions of Jerusalem in Galatians 4:25, 26…“For this Agar is mount Sinai in Arabia, and answereth to Jerusalem which now is, and is in bondage with her children. But Jerusalem which is above is free, which is the mother of us all.”

.

So now is seen the spiritual nature of the Bible. Jerusalem represents more than merely a city over there in the Middle East.

.

Jerusalem actually represents God’s people who make up the two portions of the Church: the church-apostate, and the church-faithful.

FURTHER CONFIRMATION

Now is there any further confirmation to this idea?

.

Oh yes!

.

Listen to the Apostle, Peter…“But there were false prophets also among the people, even as there shall be false teachers among you, who privily shall bring in damnable heresies, even denying the Lord.” 2nd Peter 2:1

.

Here is a verse which confirms that a cage for every unclean and hateful bird, i.e., false teachers, also applies to the New Testament Church.

TOTAL APOSTASY

.

False Prophet

Now there are those who will object, saying, “Oh, there may be some apostate churches. But not my church! We are still faithful!”

.

But Paul foretells of a day in which the apostasy will come into its fullness…“For the time will come when they will not endure sound doctrine; but after their own lusts shall they heap to themselves teachers, having itching ears;” 2nd timothy 4:3

.

Yes, today we see the prosperity-driven gospels thriving in both the liberal as well as the conservative churches. 

.

.

.

.

.

THE BIBLE ONLY!

.

http://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:USMC-06831.jpgNow this has been an extremely abbreviated study. Nevertheless, it gives us an excellent blueprint for how the Book of Revelation must be interpreted.

.

Yes, by using the Bible and only the Bible, a Bible student can compare spiritual things with spiritual, adding line upon line, and precept upon precept, and finally arrive at the true meaning of the many allegories and symbols found throughout Scripture.

GOD’S PEOPLE TAKEN CAPTIVE

.

“And I heard another voice from heaven, saying, Come out of her (Babylon), My people, that ye be not partakers of her sins, and that ye receive not of her plagues.” Revelation 18:4 

.

The Pleiades: Mystery Babylon: Mother of Harlots

.

God has a people in Babylon. Yes, Mystery Babylon is the Mother of Harlots. The sketch to the left shows her riding this beast with 7 heads and 10 horns.

.

But in that spiritual city, there are those who still love God to a certain degree. And before the final plagues are poured out upon her, God has been and will continue to call His people out of her… “And I heard another voice from heaven, saying, Come out of her (Babylon), my people, that ye be not partakers of her sins, and that ye receive not of her plagues.” Revelation 18:4

.

Captive Angel Constellation

.

And so in addition to The Pleiades appearing as the Harlot Mother, we also see this second depiction of The Pleiades as an angel, which symbolizes God’s people, walking the downward pathway to destruction. They must be called out of Babylon before it’s too late!
