BABYLON, THE HARLOT CHURCH!http://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:Burgkmair_whore_babylon_color.jpg

.

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.

.

(This 500 year old engraving is just one of many which shows that Christians understood this concept back in the days when God’s people were being physically persecuted by Antichrist!)

Now, let’s take a moment to discover how we have been drinking of Babylon’s poisonous wine…

THE MORNING AFTER

.

http://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:Burgkmair_whore_babylon_color.jpgWas there ever a time when you got drunk?

.

Well, if you did, you probably also remember waking up the next morning, cringing at the memory of how you made such a complete fool of yourself, that previous night!

.

Well, the Bible speaks of drunkenness. Listen to Solomon’s description of a drunkard… “Who hath woe? who hath sorrow? who hath contentions? who hath babbling? who hath wounds without cause? who hath redness of eyes? They that tarry long at the wine; they that go to seek mixed wine. ” Proverbs 23:29-32 (condensed, but to read entire quote, click here)

.

This is only half of Solomon’s description. But you get the point! Drunkenness is not a good thing!

SOLOMON: THE WISEST of FOOLS!

.

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

Now, speaking of Solomon, as we all know, he fell away from God, and did many http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:Dore_Solomon_Proverbs.pngfoolish things!

.

Yes, Solomon, the world’s wisest man, actually became the world’s biggest fool during those years of his apostasy!

 

.

But God ultimately sobered Solomon up, spiritually speaking.

.

And once his eyes were finally opened, he realized his own great foolishness!

DRUNK WITH THE WORLD!

.http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:PS_Kr%C3%B8yer_-_Hip_hip_hurra!_Kunstnerfest_p%C3%A5_Skagen_1888.jpg

And speaking of spiritual drunkenness, just listen to Isaiah, as he relays God’s anger toward His people… “they are drunken, but not with wine; they stagger, but not with strong drink. For the LORD hath poured out upon you the spirit of deep sleep, and hath closed your eyes: the prophets and your rulers, the seers hath He covered.” Isaiah 29:9, 10

.

Here above, it is revealed that God had given His people the spirit of drunkenness. God closed their eyes, and caused them to fall into spiritual slumber.

THE WINE OF BABYLON

William_Blake_whore_babylon-wikipedia public domain

.

And the fact is, we New Testament Believers have been taken captive by spiritual Babylon. And we too have been drunken, spiritually!

.

Listen to God’s description of this spiritual harlot, Babylon… “Come hither; I will show unto thee the judgment of the great whore…With whom the kings of the earth…have been made drunk with the wine of her fornication…And upon her forehead was a name written, MYSTERY, BABYLON THE GREAT, THE MOTHER OF HARLOTS AND ABOMINATIONS OF THE EARTH.” Revelation 17:1, 2, 5

.

This harlot woman is God’s chosen symbol of the apostate portion of the Church. And she is spoken of as a city (Babylon).

OUR LEADERS HAVE DECEIVED US!

companys-coming - revised

.

But God calls upon Believers to, “Come out of her, My people!”

.

And once the repentant Believer does come out of her, we will sober up spiritually, and realize, like Solomon, that we too have behaved like fools.

.

Yes, like fools we have, “lived in pleasure on the earth, and been wanton; we have nourished our hearts, as in a day of slaughter.” James 5:5

 

.

.

.

.

.

FALSE SHEPHERDS

.

 The fact is, Satan has been coming through his “ministers of righteousness” (see 2nd Corinthians 11:15), and presenting a gospel, so close to the true Gospel, “that if [it were] possible, they shall deceive the very elect. Behold, I (Jesus) have told you before.” Matthew 24:24, 25

.

Yes, Jesus has pre-warned us, as this above verse reveals! He pre-warned us that Satan will attempt to deceive, if possible, even the Elect people of God!

.

GOOD NEWS! DELIVERANCE FOR THE CAPTIVES!

http://www.muskegonartmuseum.org/collections-gallery/gallery

.

Listen to this fearful passage… “Therefore hear now this, thou afflicted, and drunken, but not with wine: Thus saith thy Lord the LORD, and thy God that pleadeth the cause of His people, Behold, I have taken out of thine hand the cup of trembling, even the dregs of the cup of My fury; thou shalt no more drink it again:” Isaiah 51:21, 22  

.

Well, as this above passage reveals, there will be deliverance for spiritual drunkards!

.

And the Good News is, that once we do flee out of the midst of spiritual Babylon, we won’t ever want to go back! 

.

And once we do sober up, we will never want to fall back into that wretched spiritual condition ever again!

“WE WERE LIKE THEM THAT DREAM!”

.

And when He does release us from that captivity, God’s people will say.http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:Tissot_The_Flight_of_the_Prisoners.jpg.. “When the LORD turned again the captivity of Zion, we were like them that dream! Then was our mouth filled with laughter, and our tongue with singing: then said they among the heathen, ‘The LORD hath done great things for them!’ The LORD hath done great things for us; whereof we are glad!” Psalm 126:1-3.

.

Yes, we have finally arrived at that day when God is ready to release us from our captivity. But the question to be answered is, “Am I ready and willing to come out of her?”

THE PLEIADES: MYSTERY HARLOT, AND CAPTIVE ANGEL

.

.pleiades_gendler-e1358291561622

The photo to the right is the Pleiades Cluster. Does it appear to you like an angel? Well, if it does, then you are encouraged to keep reading.

.

The above two verses concerning the Pleiades  are all the Bible has to say about the Pleiades, directly. But if you will read this article, you will discover that the Pleiades represents concepts which span much of the Bible! 

.

And The Heavens Declare.net will attempt to unravel this mysterious phenomenon in the night-sky, and will, hopefully, also interpret these two verses to show just what all this means, and how it might apply to our lives.

.

GOD’S PEOPLE TAKEN CAPTIVE

The Pleiades: Mystery Babylon: Mother of Harlots

.

“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 

.

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.

.

.

Captive Angel Constellation

.

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

.

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!
