Come Out of Her, My People! Part 52: “How Do I Come Out Of Babylon?”

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

“…when He shall appear, we shall be like Him;

for we shall see Him as He is.

And every man that hath this hope in Him

purifieth himself, even as He is pure.”

1st John 3:2, 3

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

COME OUT OF HER MY PEOPLE

.

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

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:Tissot_The_Flight_of_the_Prisoners.jpg.

But God is now commanding His people to, “Come out of her, My people!”

.

But how could God be calling His people out of a city which was destroyed long ago?

.

Well, obviously, there must be a Babylon which exists in these last days. And God is commanding us to come out of that Babylon!

BABYLON, THE WORLD!

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

.

Yes, this world (including the worldly-minded churches) is the modern-day Babylon!

.

(For more complete explanation, read the “Come Out of Her, My People” series)

.

So, let’s just explore these things to find out how we might escape from our own present-day Babylonian captivity…

“FLEE OUT OF THE MIDST OF BABYLON!”

Jeremiah 51:6

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

Now the logical question that one will ask is, “How do I come out of Babylon? After all, Babylon is a spiritual city, and not literal.”

.

Oh yes, God is literally calling His people out of the local congregations and denominations.

“PURIFY YOUR HEARTS YE DOUBLE-MINDED!”

James 4:8

. 

But as already stated, we must come out of this spiritual harlot city in our hearts and minds!http://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:Burgkmair_whore_babylon_color.jpg

.

So how is this accomplished?

.

Well, to put it concisely, Babylon is any doctrine that doesn’t square with the Bible alone and in its entirety.

.

And as a double proof, the life of Jesus is “the way, the truth, and the life” we must live. (see John 14:6) 

.

In other words, the life of Jesus is to be our life.

“PROPHESY NOT…RIGHT THINGS, SPEAK…SMOOTH THINGS, PROPHESY DECEITS”

Isaiah 30:10  

.http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:Nicaea_icon.jpg

Unfortunately, the church-world has brought in many false doctrines and false notions over the decades and centuries.

.

And so, the house of God has become a veritable, “city of confusion”, as it declares in Isaiah 24:10.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:The_Late,_Great_Planet_Earth_cover.jpg

.

Thus, in addition to making a literal exodus out of the various apostate religious organizations, the Christian has been given the task of eliminating all the non-biblical jargon, false doctrines, and general unspiritual rubbish which has cluttered “the way of holiness” for too long! Isaiah 35:8

“FOOLISH TALK OR JESTING, WHICH ARE NOT CONVENIENT (NOT APPROPRIATE)”

Ephesians 5:4

.

For an example of non-biblical, worldly rubbish, the Christian community has begun to embrace comedy, both in the pulpit and in the pews.http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:PaulT.jpg

.

But not only does Ephesians 5:2, 3 condemn “foolish talk and jesting”, but the lives of both Jesus and Paul (our mortal role-model) were 100% free of comedy, jesting, and mockery!

.

Oh yes, these two were filled with heavenly joy! And yet, their words were totally serious.

“WREST…SCRIPTURES, UNTO THEIR OWN DESTRUCTION”

2Peter 3:16 

.

But sadly, the Christian community attempts to wrestle with Scripture to make it seem as though comedy is condoned by God.

.

Or, they will simply say that Jesus probably joked around, even though Scripture doesn’t have any record of such levity.

.

But the Bible condemns adding or subtracting from Scripture.

.

And we must never ever add anything to God’s Word, such as surmising that Jesus joked around, even though Scripture never recorded such clowning!

THOMAS BROOKS ON “FALSE TEACHERS”

 

.

But listen to that well-known Reformationist of yesteryear, Thomas Brooks… “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.”

.

Thomas Brooks had some pretty scathing words against those who joke in the pulpits, wouldn’t you agree?

“MY PEOPLE ARE DESTROYED FOR A LACK OF KNOWLEDGE!”

Hosea 4:6  

.

Well, comedy is just one example of how worldly-minded professors of Christianity have compromised the purity of the Gospel with Babylonian doctrines.

.

And so, O Stranger & Pilgrim, we have our work cut out for us! And this website has many articles which elaborate on this theme of purification. And armed with this clearer understanding of what Babylon is all about, our Christian duty is to purify our hearts in the uncompromised truth.

.

And as we fix our gaze Heavenward, our pathway of truth will be easier to discern! And the boundary-line between the truth and falsehood will become much more distinct.

FLOODWATERS of SATAN

.

The Wave Constellation is primarily comprised of the Auriga Constellation plus one star from Taurus, plus one more star.

winter four constellations

.

The Winter Constellations are depicted in this below sketch to the right, and shows this constellation group as they are seen in early winter, as they rise in the eastern skies. The Woman is in the north. The Dragon and Orion are farther south from the Woman.

.

WINTER CONSTELLATIONS-SEEN IN FALL: This sketch to the right is how this constellation group appears in the eastern sky in fall. This is the four primary constellations of the Winter Constellations. They can be seen in this position, in the late fall above the eastern horizon. The Woman of Revelation 12 is commonly called Ursa Major or The Big Dipper and appears in the north. Orion the Soldier is the at the bottom is to the south of the Woman. The The Dragon of Revelation Constellation’s mouth isThe Hyades Cluster, and the tip of his tail is Pleiades, and his Wave of Water is primarily the Auriga constellation. The Glorious Horse Constellation  head is of Perseus Constellation and his rear end is Cassiopeia Constellation.

(Editor’s note: It is impossible to make this chart accurate, and visually correct, because the dome effect of the sky makes these constellations look different than they appear when placed on flat paper.)
