Come Out of Her, My People! Part 57: “Drinking Babylon’s Wine” 

To read Part 1, click here… “May 12th (Come Out of Her, My People?)”

“Stay yourselves, and wonder;

cry ye out, and cry: they are drunken,

but not with wine; they stagger,

but not with strong drink.”

Isaiah 29:9

CITY OF CONFUSION

.http://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 PEOPLE”

.http://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.”

THE PLEIADES: TALE OF TWO WOMEN

.

The Constellation, Pleiades, is a two-fold constellation. In other words, it can either be seen as the “Harlot, Mystery Babylon”, or it can also be seen as the “Captive Angel”. Admittedly, the Captive Angel is much easier to find when looking at this great cluster of stars. It actually looks like an angel.

.

Nevertheless, both these two women represent the two portions of God’s people: the church-apostate and the church-faithful: the foolish virgins and the wise virgins: antichrists and true Christians.

“TRANSFORMED BY THE RENEWING OF YOUR MIND”

.

A radio Bible teacher gave a very nice 25 minute Bible study on that incredible Passage from Romans 12:1, 2

.

Listen…“I beseech you therefore, brethren, by the mercies of God, that ye present your bodies a living sacrifice, holy, acceptable unto God, which is your reasonable service. And be not conformed to this world: but be ye transformed by the renewing of your mind, that ye may prove what is that good, and acceptable, and perfect, will of God.” 

.

This amazing passage should be emblazoned upon the hearts on each and every child of God.

.

And to his credit, that pastor really gave a great discourse on those two verses.

.

“FOOLISH TALK AND JESTING”

.

But in spite of his nice presentation, he unfortunately mingled into his study, a whole lot of funny little quips, jests and laughs.

.

In other words, this 25 minute plea for Christians to become transformed into the image of Christ, was salted with unchristlike behavior!

.

So sad to witness such a contradiction between a man’s words and his behavior!

DRINKING BABYLON’S WINE

.

Now, as far as this particular Bible teacher, he may indeed be a sincere child of God. But http://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:Burgkmair_whore_babylon_color.jpgunfortunately, he has obviously been drinking of that intoxicating wine of Babylon.

.

Yes, as Revelation 2:20 warns… “Notwithstanding I have a few things against thee, because thou sufferest that woman Jezebel, which calleth herself a prophetess, to teach and to seduce my servants to commit fornication, and to eat things sacrificed unto idols.”

.

And Jezebel was symbolic of, “Mystery Babylon, Mother of Harlots”. Thus, this above verse warns that Jezebel (an adulterous gospel) can find her way into any congregation, if the parishioners allow her in.

.

And bringing in all her false doctrines and world-loving ways, that congregation begins to become spiritually drunken with her idolatry.

DRUNKS ACTING SILLY

.

And as most people know, people who are intoxicated often behave in a silly and giddy way.http://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:Bastille_Tumble_2010_Toulouse_Wine.JPG

.

And when drunkards get together, they really enjoy hearing one-another behaving so silly and so giddy! That’s how drunkards behave. And so it should be no surprise that congregations today will love to hear such worldly behavior from their pastor.

.

They’ve all been drinking Babylon’s wine!

“THOU HYPOCRITE!”

.the accusing finger share-alike license www.signsofheaven.org

Well, it should make any of us very uncomfortable to criticize anyone else, especially when most of us are likewise guilty of the same sins! Yes, those of us who have behaved in the same way need to hang our heads in shame too! We’re all in the same boat! We’ve all sinned.

.

The fact is, we’ve all been drinking of Babylon’s wine, haven’t we? Yes, anytime we watch TV or listen to the radio, etc., and hear all the unchristlike joking and jesting, are we not partaking of Babylon’s wine? It is a lack of watchfulness that causes us to join in with the world in their unchristlike behavior.

.

Because, let’s face it! Neither Jesus, nor Paul, nor John, nor Peter, nor any other New Testament role-models ever engaged in such silly behavior, according to Scripture.

JOKING AROUND ONLY CHEAPENS THE MOMENT!

.

And truth-be-told, to mingle the great commission of warning the world “to flee from the wrath to come”, with jokes and quips and foolish talk greatly sets our audience at ease, lessening the utmost seriousness and solemnity of the moment, when hearts are deciding for or against Salvation!

.

And as Paul warned…“But fornication, and all uncleanness, or covetousness, let it not be once named among you, as becometh saints; Neither filthiness, nor foolish talking, nor jesting, which are not convenient: but rather giving of thanks. For this ye know, that no whoremonger, nor unclean person, nor covetous man, who is an idolater, hath any inheritance in the kingdom of Christ and of God.” Ephesians 5:3-5

THOMAS BROOKS ON JOKING IN THE PULPIT

.

Listen to that great Church reformer, Thomas Brooks as he speaks about false teachers in the pulpits…

.

Listen…“They preach more to please the ear than to profit the heart…False teachers handle holy things rather with wit and trifling, rather than with fear and reverence. False teachers are soul-murderers. They are like evil surgeons, that skin over the wound—but never heal it…False teachers are Hell’s greatest enrichers.”

.

Here are some very scathing words concerning those who think it’s a good thing to keep the congregation laughing.

.

“YE SHALL NOT ADD UNTO THE WORD WHICH I COMMAND YOU!”

Deuteronomy 4:2 

.

Now, many church-goers will make excuses for their foolish talk and jesting by saying such things as, “Well, Jesus probably joked around with His disciples, but it’s just not mentioned in the Bible.”

.

All such presumptuous statements as this above statement, makes a person guilty of adding his own personal notions to God’s infallible Word.

.

And this kind of presumption is nothing less than sin of the highest degree!

END-TIME EXODUS OUT OF BABYLONhttp://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:Tissot_The_Flight_of_the_Prisoners.jpg

.

Well, the Good News in all this is that it is still the Day of Salvation. And all those who truly desire to “come out of her (Babylon) My people”, can cry and plead for Jesus to come and cleanse his or her compromised and polluted heart! 

.

And all those who escape out of Babylon, and join the end-time exodus from this Babylonish world, will be delighted to discover that the love, joy and peace that Heaven offers is of far greater value than any earthly treasure or trinket that we might have to forsake to become disciples of Jesus!

THE FIVE FOOLISH VIRGINS STARS

.

Serpent Constellation

.

A new constellation has been revealed, as of about May 29th, 2014. This constellation appears as a snake. Its body is comprised of stars from the Bootes Constellation, and its jaws are made of the four stars which Babylonians saw as the head of Draco, the Dragon. It also has a small single star for an eye.

.

Now in this constellation is a group of five stars, which will be called “The Five Foolish Virgins Stars”. These are located on the opposite side of the Glorious Crown of 12 Stars, from the Five Wise Virgins Stars. But one big difference between the two is, that The Five Wise are curved around the Glorious Crown, while the Five Foolish are curved away from it!
