.

1. First, the Church did not understand the spiritual rest which the New Testament emphasized. Instead they clung to the Saturday Sabbath. This afforded Satan opportunity to introduce a new one-day-per-week Sabbath, Sunday, eventually changing it to the Lord’s Day, thus eliminating the necessity of keeping it a day for holy and spiritual endeavors. (to explore this further, you can read…Daily Devotional, Year 3 – September 1 (Add Thou Not! Part 4: “Which Day Is The Sabbath?”)

2. After the Dark Ages ended, this antichrist secular world seemingly made peace with the Church, thus putting the Christian world at ease, no longer being vigilant, now freely mingling with unbelievers…(to explore this further, you can read…Daily Devotional, Year 3 – February 3 (Come Out From Among Them, Part 2: “Making Friends With Unbelievers”)

PROSPERITY GOSPELS

.

3. Then the prosperous industrial revolution allowed Satan to introduce the prosperity gospels which caused church-goers to begin pursuing the “entrepreneurial spirit” in the form of ambitious, time-consuming, and energy-sapping careers. (Oh yes, these prosperity ideologies may be fine for the people of the world to pursue, but the Christian’s great focus and chief desire is now to be Heavenward, seeking to be transformed into the image of Christ.)

YE CANNOT SERVE GOD AND MAMMON

.

4. The industrial revolution and the high-tech revolution allowed many hedonistic inventions and pleasures to come in the form of television, radio, Internet, video games, hobbies, movies, sports, political intrigue, clubs, banqueting, lavish vacation resorts, easily obtained alcohol, lavishing time, energy and money on homes gardens and lands, expensive pleasure vehicles, and a host of similar time-consuming pursuits…(to explore this further, you can read…Daily Devotional, Year 3 – July 30 (The Time of Jacob’s Trouble, Part 9: “Rapture-Ready, or Earthly-Entangled?”)

.

6. All this prosperity and newly invented earthly Mammon caused Christians to become so absorbed with worldly endeavors, they ceased from diligent Bible study and contemplation, door-to-door evangelism, and ceaseless prayer…(to explore this further, you can read…Daily Devotional, Year 2 – FEBRUARY 27 (Our Most Holy Place: Proper Care & Maintenance)

.

7. Then came the so-called “Pre-Tribulation Rapture” which has absolutely no biblical justification, thus causing the Church to be lulled into a false sense of security and spiritual drowsiness...(to explore this further, you can read…Daily Devotional, Year 2 – JANUARY 25 (The Pre-Trib Rapture))

EVIL AND CORRUPTING INFLUENCES

.

8. Because of the magnetism of television, radio, and Internet, the Church became heavily influenced and conformed into the image of the world…(to explore this further, you can read…Today’s Devotional – October 27th (Television and the Image that Speaks))

Well, these are the primary ways in which Satan has rendered the church-world ineffective, bringing church-wide apostasy.

.

Nevertheless, God is still willing to purify a people for Himself.

.

And though we are no longer able to enjoy the fellowship once possible during the era of the churches, we still may enjoy rich fellowship with the Father and with the Son, via the indwelling Holy Spirit, as we flee from the wrath to come, taking refuge in the mountain of His holiness.

TODAY’S FEATURED HEAVENLY SIGN

GOD’S PEOPLE TAKEN CAPTIVE

.

“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 

.

The Pleiades: Mystery Babylon: Mother of Harlots

.

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!
