CITY OF CONFUSIONhttp://www.creationism.org/images/DoreBibleIllus/aGen1106Dore_TheConfusionOfTongues.jpg

.

Babylon was given its name during the building of that infamous Tower of Babylon, because God confused their speech…

.

Listen… “Therefore is the name of it called Babel; because the LORD did there confound the language of all the earth: and from thence did the LORD scatter them abroad upon the face of all the earth.” Genesis 11:9 

.

And so, the name, Babylon, actually means, “City of Confusion”.

COME OUT OF HER MY PEOPLEhttp://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:Tissot_The_Flight_of_the_Prisoners.jpg

.

The Bible pronounces a curse upon all those who refuse to, “Come out of Her (Babylon) My people!”

.

Yes, upon all those who refuse to join the Exodus out of this “City of Confusion”, the apostate churches, the following sentence is pronounced… “Come out of her, My people, that ye be not partakers of her sins, and that ye receive not of her plagues.”

IS THE CHURCH BABYLON?http://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:Burgkmair_whore_babylon_color.jpg

.

There are many honest-hearted truth-seekers who are genuinely wondering whether or not the churches today are the Mystery Babylon spoken of in the prophets and in Revelation 17 & 18. “Just what are the evidences that the churches are apostate?”

.

Oh yes, they understand that a large portion of the churches are apostate. But have ALL the churches become void of God’s Spirit? “Has my little conservative church become apostate?” This is the perplexing question that many are now asking and struggling with.

“COME OUT OF HER, MY PEOPLE”

.

Well, this website has attempted to prove that the time has come to make an end-time exodus away from the apostate churches. And there are many articles herein which deal with various evidences that the Day has fully come, to come out of Babylon.

.

.

.

.

.

.

.

.

And today’s devotional will focus upon a false and heretical doctrine now being taught in both liberal and conservative churches alike, concerning the so-called “Socialistic Gospel”.

WINDS NOW BLOWINGBeware of dogma - Wikimedia - Public Domain

.

The church-world has become a Babylon of Confusion, because of the many winds of false doctrines which are now blowing from every direction.

.

And one such false doctrine is the so-called “social gospel”, in which the great emphasis is to supply the physical needs of the world, by the various churches which embrace this idea.

BIBLE ENCOURAGES GOOD WORKShttp://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:FMSC_Staff_Trip_2011_-_Food_Distribution_(6384089759).jpg

.

Now to be sure, the Bible sometimes speaks of how Christians should give bread to the hungry, and clothe the naked, and visit those in prison, and let the oppressed go free.

.

And so, it is very easy to get the idea that this is the essence of the Gospel.

TELL-TALE SIGN OF APOSTASYhttp://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:Free_Food_Distribution_-_Gangasagar_Fair_Transit_Camp_-_Kolkata_2012-01-14_0691.JPG

.

One tell-tale sign that those who proclaim such a gospel, have swerved off the true
pathway, and on to a false pathway is that they are more interested in doing such good humanitarian works than they are in studying the Bible, and proclaiming the soul-saving Gospel of Christ.

.

In other words, you won’t find these churches constantly pouring through the Bible, verse-by-verse, to discover more and more about Christ. They are more interested in supplying the physical needs of others than they are in immersing themselves in the Word of Christ.

OUR TWO ROLE-MODELShttp://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:Bloch-SermonOnTheMount.jpg

.

Second, as we look at the lives of our two role-models, Jesus and Paul, we never ever see them visiting the prisons, nor feeding the poor, nor handing out clothes. Oh yes, Jesus fed the multitudes twice. But these were the attendees of His great Bible study, and were not those who suffer hunger on a daily basis.

.

Nor did Paul ever do these things. And furthermore, he enjoins us to, “Be ye followers of me, even as I also am of Christ.” 1st Corinthians 11:1Oh no, Paul isn’t requiring us to become traveling evangelists.

.

But as we spend much time contemplating his life and ministry, we are to adapt his qualities and purposes into our own life.

SALVATION FAR MORE PRECIOUS!

.

“I have esteemed the words of His mouth more than my necessary food.” Job 23:12

.

Everyone who has truly received the gift of Salvation realizes how precious is that gift! And those who have that gift would rather go hungry, naked, or imprisoned rather than give up God’s precious Words of Life!

WERE JESUS AND PAUL DERELICT?

.

Now were both Jesus and Paul derelict in their commission to feed the hungry, clothe thehttp://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:PaulT.jpg naked, visit the prisoners, and set the oppressed free? Absolutely not! Both Jesus and Paul spent their ministries, feeding those who were starving for the Bread of Life.

.

And both Jesus and Paul spent their ministries satisfying the thirsty souls with the Water of Life!

.

And both Jesus and Paul spent their time clothing those who were spiritually naked with the Garments of Salvation!

.

And both Jesus and Paul spent their time on earth visiting those who were held captive in Satan’s Prison-house of Sin!

THE BIBLE IS A SPIRITUAL BOOK

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

What these well-meaning churches do not understand is that the Bible is a spiritual Book. And when it speaks of earthly objects, these must be understood spiritually…

.

Listen to Paul…“Which things also we speak, not in the words which man’s wisdom teacheth, but which the Holy Ghost teacheth; comparing spiritual things with spiritual. But the natural man receiveth not the things of the Spirit of God: for they are foolishness unto him: neither can he know them, because they are spiritually discerned.” 1st Corinthians 2:13, 14

GOOD WORKS ARE GREAT!http://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:Helping_the_homeless.jpg

.

Now just because these things must be understood spiritually, does that mean that it’s wrong to help people out with literal food, clothing, and prison visitations, etc.? Of course not! By all means, if we see someone begging on the side of the road, stop and give some money! or if we want to visit a prison, and share the Gospel, that’s great! And to send clothing to poor nations is a wonderful thing to do!

SPIRITUAL TAKES PRECEDENCEhttp://blog.travelpod.com/travel-photo/jeastty/3/1303829593/mall-witnessing.jpg/tpod.html

.

But never should we neglect our great commission to feed our own self as well as others with the life-giving Bread of God’s Word!

.

And we must all drink freely of the soul-saving Water of Life!

.

And we must visit those who are yet in Satan’s Prison-house of Sin.

.

And we must not neglect to clothe the spiritually naked with the Garments of Salvation!

OUR FIRST AND FOREMOST DUTY!http://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:USMC-06831.jpg

.

This is our first and foremost duty to God! And to meditate day and might upon the life-giving Word of Christ should never be set aside, and replaced by humanitarianism. And if I find that I can easily do humanitarian good works, but my love for the Words of Christ is lacking, then it just might be that I have fallen into a “Good Works” false gospel.

.

And if I attempt to substitute these spiritual duties with the “socialistic gospel”, then it is proof-positive that I have fallen into a false gospel in which there is no Salvation.

FLEE TO MOUNT SIONhttp://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:Tissot_The_Flight_of_the_Prisoners.jpg

.

And so, it is no wonder that God refers to today’s church-world as Mystery Babylon. It is filled with error and confusion.

.

And this error regarding the so-called “Social Gospel” is just one more sign of apostasy in the churches.

.

And God is now calling His people to come out of this City of Confusion, and flee to the spiritual Mount Sion, to take their stand with all those who, “follow the Lamb withersoever He goeth.” Revelation 14:4

TODAY’S FEATURED HEAVENLY SIGN

LOCATING THIS 3RD FACE

.

The 3rd face of the Moon is a bit more difficult to locate, because it is mostly upside down. But this photo and this sketch are how this face would appear if it was turned right side up. (In the southern hemisphere, however, this is how the Moon would appear.)

.

The third face is the most difficult to see in the northern hemisphere, but once you do, it then becomes easy. This face is like a furry creature of the field. Maybe a rabbit. Maybe a squirrel. Perhaps a chipmunk. Probably a mouse. All “seekers”; all foragers or scavengers.

.3rd Face in Moon-scavenger-www.signsofheaven.org

And while this picture shows this little “beast of the field” right side up, this 3rd face is always pretty much in an upside-down position.

.

The other two faces appear right-side-up, and are easier to locate. This photo and this sketch are both turned around to help you see this 3rd face easily. This enhanced sketch to the above right is merely to help you to see this face more easily. (As already stated, this 3rd face is right side up in the southern hemisphere.)

.

.

.

.

.

LOCATING 3rd FACE AT BEGINNING OF NIGHT

.

But this sketch here to the right is how this 3rd face actually appears when the Full Moon is in the east, at the beginning of night, in the northern hemisphere. But all you can readily see is the 1st face. 

.

What you must do to see the 3rd face is to tilt your head to the right, 90 degrees.

.

Do you see it? (You may find it easier if you just turn your screen on its left side, if you are using a laptop. But please don’t do anything to put your computer in jeopardy!)

.

The easiest time of the month to actually see this face is when the Full Moon is in the east, just after dark. It then can be seen by tilting your head 90 degrees to the right.  But as night progresses, the Moon rotates clockwise, until this face is completely upside down, as the Moon works its way to the west.

.

.

.

.

.

SOUTHERN HEMISPHERE

.

For those living in the Southern Hemisphere, while they have all three faces of the Moon, the 3rd face, the 3rd Face in Moon-scavenger-www.signsofheaven.orgSeeker Face is the upright face when the Moon is Full. This somewhat changes the story for those southerners. But the basic concept is still the same: one face of the Night Watchman, another of the Predator-Pharisee, and the third of the Seeker-Sadducee. But this is how the full Moon appears to all those who are down under.
