Come Out of Her, My People! Part 24: “Love Not The World!”

“He that passeth by,

and meddleth with strife belonging not to him,

is like one that taketh a dog by the ears.”

Proverbs 26:17

CITY OF CONFUSION

.

http://www.creationism.org/images/DoreBibleIllus/aGen1106Dore_TheConfusionOfTongues.jpgBabylon 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 PEOPLE”

Revelation 18:4

.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:Tissot_The_Flight_of_the_Prisoners.jpgThe 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 current-day 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.jpgThere 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”

Constellation- Woman of Revelation 12 flees to the mountains Mark 13:14

.

 

But 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.

But today’s devotional will focus upon a false and heretical doctrine now being taught in some of the more conservative churches, concerning the our relationship with the world…

CALLING OUT OF BABYLON

.

http://blog.travelpod.com/travel-photo/jeastty/3/1303829593/mall-witnessing.jpg/tpod.htmlGod has chosen us out of the world to become, “ambassadors for Christ.” 2nd Corinthians 5:20

.

We are to be representatives for Heaven to a lost and dying world.

.

And we have been commissioned by God, to call others to come out of this sorrowful world, and take their stand on the Lord’s side.

SATAN CALLS US BACK TO BABYLON

TV indoctrination

.

And yet, “the god of this world”, cannot tolerate losing even one of his former citizens!

.

And so he sets about to bring us back into his “fold”, by any means possible!

.

.

.

.

.

POLITICS TODAY

.television

And one very powerful way that the Enemy of Souls brings Christians back is through the current phenomenon of politics.

.

Yes, Satan has turned the world of politics into a very intriguing and captivating area of interest, using the various mass media to catch our attention and divert us away from the work at hand, which God has given us to accomplish.

.

.

.

.

.

MUCH TIME WASTED

.http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:March_for_Women%27s_Lives_detail.jpg

And so, many Christians devote much time, listening to the daily news/politics shows on both radio and television, keeping up with the daily on-going battle between both sides of the political spectrum. 

.

And even many churches have become entangled by this worldly-minded ideology, being badgered by quasi-religious radio and television shows (and these shows, quite often try to make us feel guilty for not becoming personally involved in politics).

“ENTANGLED…WITH…THIS LIFE”

.

But the Bible warns us…“No man that warreth entangleth himself with the affairs of this life; that he may please him who hath chosen him to be a soldier.” 2nd Timothy 2:4

.

Paul here is presenting this truth in the form of a parable, exhorting Christians to, “remember the battle, do no more”. Job 41:8.

.

We must remember that the spiritual battle which rages all around us, and not become mesmerized by this, “enchanted-ground world”!

.

THE WORLD: SATAN’S KINGDOM!

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:Martin,_John_-_Satan_presiding_at_the_Infernal_Council_-_1824.JPG

.

We must keep in mind where we are! This world is part of Hell! The Devil rules here! This is his kingdom! God has temporarily given Lucifer rule over this world.

.

But Satan has disguised his kingdom, giving it a form of godliness, in hopes of confusing us, and entwining our hearts with the seemingly good things of the world.

RETURNING TO THE CITY OF DESTRUCTION

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:New_york_times_square-terabass.jpg

.

And so, the vast majority of church-goers, after having been called out of the world, eventually return back into the world, pursuing the comforts and pleasures and cares of this life.

.

Oh yes, like the rest of the world, Christians must work and support themselves, and their family too, if they have one.

.

But Satan’s goal is to ensnare the hearts of Christians with various aspects of the world, getting us to place our heavenly sojourn aside, while we begin to pursue the pleasures, and the cares, and the ambitious careers of this world, instead of being fully engaged in the purification of our hearts and the transformation of our lives into the image of Christ.

MANY “NICE” THINGS HERE

company's coming

.

Now, there are many seeming nice and very interesting pursuits in this deceptive world: hobbies, clubs, sciences, ministries, careers, sports, politics, television, radio, music-listening and performing, social-church-school-family events, plays, operas, movies, travel, pleasure-crafts, houses, gardens, lands, and a host of similar-type pursuits.

.

And Satan has designed this world to become a snare to the souls of all who fall back into the world, via one or more of these earthly attractions.

“A DREAM COMETH!”

ABOVE PICTURE: Dream Maker of Babylon - Signs Of Heaven.org

.

Listen to the Wise Man… “For a dream cometh through the multitude of busy-ness;” Ecclesiastes 5:3

.

Yes, when we get so involved in worldly pursuits, a spirit of forgetfulness envelops that unwatchful Christian, causing him (or her) to wander away from the upward pathway…

AS A SNARE, THAT DAY HAS COME!

PICTURE: companys-coming - revised

.

Listen again to this warning by Jesus in Luke’s Gospel…“And take heed to yourselves, lest at any time your hearts be overcharged with surfeiting, and drunkenness, and cares of this life, and so that day come upon you unawares. For as a snare shall it come on all them that dwell on the face of the whole earth. Watch ye therefore, and pray always, that ye may be accounted worthy to escape all these things that shall come to pass, and to stand before the Son of man.” Luke 21:34-36

.

Christians must awake from our death-like slumber and once again put on our armor and watch unto prayer, and pray unto watchfulness! The hour of judgment is at hand!

.

And so, look up, O soldier of the Cross, lift up your head, because your redemption draweth near!

FLEE TO MOUNT SION

.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:Tissot_The_Flight_of_the_Prisoners.jpgAnd 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 how the Church has become world-loving and earthly-minded, 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

“For all that is in the world,

the lust of the flesh,

the lust of the eyes,

and the pride of life,

is not of the Father,

but is of the world.”

THE SWINE: “LUST OF THE FLESH”

.

“For all that is in the world, the lust of the flesh, the lust of the eyes, and the pride of life, is not of the Father, but is of the world.” 1st John 2:16

.

 

This article will introduce this third beast-like face, inscribed in the Moon: a swine. And it will be shown that the three beast-like faces in the Moon, represent the concept taught in the above verse concerning “the lust moonstars_noao-nasa no copyright claimof the flesh…the lust of the eyes, and the pride of life”. 

.

It has become apparent that the second face in the Moon, besides appearing as a wolf-like beast, also appears as a Swine. Let’s explore this concept, for a moment. First of all, when a person sees the second face up in the sky, it’s arguable whether or not it looks like a swine. But it must be conceded that the photos do indeed make it appear as if this character has a “sawed-off” snout like a swine. And of course, a swine is spoken of quite frequently in Scripture.
