“And he (an angel) cried mightily with a strong voice, saying, Babylon the great is fallen, is fallen… And I heard another 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 18:2, 4

Many Bible students read this above passage, and wonder what in the world it could possibly be talking about.

.

Perhaps it could be speaking of some city in Iraq, or perhaps the city which has recently sprung up called Dubai!

THE HARLOT CHURCHhttp://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:Burgkmair_whore_babylon_color.jpg

.

But for those who have discovered that the Bible is a totally spiritual revelation of the Gospel, they know that the City of Babylon actually represents the world and the worldly portion of the Church, the Mystery Harlot of Revelation 17.

SENSUALITY-DRIVEN CHURCHES

.

Hollywood has loved to make movies that feature a rather drab and boring church which eventually gets a make-over, and begins to have up-to-dhttp://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:Harlem_Gospel_Choir.jpgate and “cool” music and “hip” services!

.

Well, these movies have not escaped the notice of the Christian community.

.

And the Christian community has, “got-on-board”, as they say, becoming trendy and sensual.

SEXUALLY-CHARGED SOCIETY TODAY

.

We live in a very sexually-charged society, in which the various media are filled with sensuality.

.

And unfortunately, the Church has felt compelled to embrace a certain amount of this sensuality, bringing it in to our worship services.

.

And the results have been devastating, and have grieved away the Spirit of Holiness!

ATTRACTING THE WORLD


Rock Music Christian CHURCH STP 2010 Pomona wikimedia public domain

Now, the main reason for the churches giving in to this fashionable new style of worship, is to keep up with the times, having a youthful appeal.

.

And combined with preaching a prosperity-driven message, the world has come in to such churches by the droves!

.

Yes, these new, hip and trendy churches are very attractive! And nobody there needs to feel threatened! Everyone is welcomed, and nobody is judged!

.

But what the churches do not understand, is that when we play around with sensuality, we are playing with fire!

DRINKING THE WINE OF GOD’S WRATH

.

But why are we playing with fire, when we become sensual?

.

Simple! God is going to give us the fruit of our ways!

.

Listen… “But I will punish you according to the fruit of your doings, saith the LORD…And they shall recompense your lewdness upon you, and ye shall bear the sins http://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:Davi_Sacer_na_Via_Show_2011.jpgof your idols: and ye shall know that I am the Lord GOD.” Jeremiah 21:14 & Ezekiel 23:49

.

Yes, the sins of the harlot, Babylon shall be recompensed upon her, and she shall receive according to the fruit of her doings!

.

If we want hip and sensual music, pretty faces, designer jeans, cool talk, and joking preachers, then God will give us plenty more sensuality! And that is why there is a high rate of fornication and adulteries in these kinds of churches!

.

Yes, just as 1 + 1 = 2, so also, sensuality breeds sensuality! If you bring in music that has a sensual appeal, you will be leavening your church with sensuality! It’s a very simple concept!

SENSUALITY IS DEVILISH, NOT HAVING GOD’S SPIRIT!

.

“This wisdom descendeth not from above, but is earthly, sensual, devilish.” James 3:15https://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:No_Angels_-_ESC_2008.jpg

.

Yes, as this above verse reveals, sensuality is earthly and devilish!

.

And much of today’s so-called church music and clothing fashions, etc., has a sensuality about it!

THE WORKS OF THE FLESH

.

Listen… “Now the works of the flesh are manifest, which are these; Adultery, fornication, uncleanness, lasciviousness (unclean desires), Idolatry… emulations…Envyings…and such like: of the which I tell you before, as I have also told you in time past, that they which do such things shall not inherit the kingdom of God.” Galatians 5:19-21 (condensed)

.

This partial list of fleshly lusts are those which are involved in this current-day sensuality which has moved in and taken hold of the Christian world.

.

And the results have been devastating! And even though most of the resulting sexual scandals have been greatly covered up from the public, they have been bad enough to send a sobering message!

THE GOAL OF ALL TRUE CHRISTIANS

.

The Christian must strive to remember the true purpose of becoming a Christian: to https://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:Christianity-Jesus_Christ_Died_for_your_Sin.jpgbecome changed into the likeness of Jesus!

.

God is not wanting a compromised Christian, but a purified Christian! All earthly leaven is to be removed!

.

Listen… “And every man that hath this hope in Him (Jesus), purifies himself, even as He (Jesus) is pure.” 1st John 3:3

.

And this above verse, and many similar ones, encourage us to fully engage in the purification of our hearts and the transformation of our lives into His likeness!

GOOD NEWS!

.

But the very Good News is that the gates of Hell shall not prevail against the Church!

.

No, God has determined that we are to finally come out of Babylon!Constellation- Woman of Revelation 12 flees to the mountains Mark 13:14

.

Listen… “And he cried mightily with a strong voice, saying, Babylon the great is fallen, is fallen…And I heard another 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 18:2, 4

.

So here is the call to God’s people, to come out of Babylon. And from what has already been discussed, we must begin the work of heart purification, which we have long neglected!

.

The Christian is to come out of the worldly, Babylonish churches, and keep separate from all sensuality, either in the churches, on the radio, or in the home!

.

And with today’s vast resources, one can easily listen to non-sensual sacred music via the Internet!

TODAY’S FEATURED HEAVENLY SIGN

DOUBLE ENTENDRE OF REVELATION 12 WOMAN

.http://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:Ursa_Major_IAU.svg

“For the husband is the head of the wife, even as Christ is the head of the Church: and He is the Savior of the body.” Ephesians 5:23

.

This page concerns the constellation which is commonly known as The Big Dipperand the “Great Bear”. It actually star-chart ursa major summerrappears in the summer months as a woman travailing in child-birth. God has purposely given her no head. But God did this to present a very important concept.

.

Yes, this woman represents the Church, the, “Jerusalem above, which is free, and is the mother of us all” (see Galatians 4:26).

.

You see, the single star she is giving birth to typifies the Christ child. Reading in Ephesians that Christ is the “head” of the Church, this single star is logically going to become her head. But how will that be accomplished? .

.

WOMAN FLIPS AROUND IN WINTER

.

Now, if this Woman-in-Travail were all that the Lord created in the heavens, itstar-chart ursa major would be nothing short of amazing! But God, in His infinite power and majesty, has made this a great sign in Heaven, just as Revelation 12 proclaims. Because as the summer passes, this constellation begins to slowly flip around, until the stars representing her arms now become her legs. And the stars that once represented her legs now become her arms.  And finally, it appears as the Fleeing Woman of Revelation 12. And at that point, this single little star in her womb-area, representing the Christ-child, now becomes her head! And of course, this reminds us of the passage… “And He (Christ) is the head of the body, the Church…” Colossians 1:18.
