https://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:Two-babylons.jpgAlexander Hislop, a minister of the Gospel back in the mid-nineteenth century, made a compelling case in his renowned book, The Two Babylons, concerning the Church of Rome being an extension of ancient Babylon.

.

Hislop went step by step showing that the various customs, practices, doctrines, and holidays of that Romish religion were actually originated in ancient Babylon.

SUNDAY SACREDNESS?

.

Now, today’s devotional is concerned with just one of those ancient doctrines, Sunday observance.

VERY SLOPPY BIBLE INTERPRETATION!

.

But the real problem comes in when church leaders and theologians concoct and canonize a new day of worship without any biblical authority.

.

Listen to this stark warning from God…“Every word of God is pure: He is a shield unto them that put their trust in Him. Add thou not unto His words, lest He reprove thee, and thou be found a liar.” Proverbs 30:5, 6

.

God is very jealous for His Word. Nothing should be added nor taken away from His Word!

.

And let’s face it! The Bible has been written by God to be a legal document. It is the infallible, inerrant covenant between God and man. In other words, it must totally agree with itself. It is an air-tight contract!

.

.

.

.

.

“For precept must be upon precept…line upon line”

Isaiah 28:10

.

But when mere erring humans begin to make church doctrines based on faulty and incomplete scriptural interpretation, they break that sacred covenant. In other words, this new sabbath day (or The Lord’s Day, as they call it), requires its adherents to make conclusions of its sacredness based on assumption and presumption rather than on a plain, “Thus saith the Lord”. They must take a theological leap across all biblical prudence in order to justify that day.

.

We cannot just concoct a new sabbath day from midnight to midnight on the 1st day of the week using sola-scriptura, “The Bible only”! It’s just not there!

.

.

.

.

.

A THEOLOGICAL LEAP TO ASSUME CHRIST’S RESURRECTION JUSTIFIES A NEW SANCTIFIED DAY OF WORSHIP.

.

And yes, Jesus was resurrected on the 1st Day of the week. But that in itself does not validate nor condone any concocting of a new sabbath, or a new sanctified day of church gathering to worship.

.

And oh yes, as already said, the Church could have met on this or any other day of the week and hopefully on all seven days!

.

But for the most part, they didn’t.

.

And yet, in the Book of Acts we see that the early Church did indeed meet every day of the week, as is written…“And they (Jesus’ followers), continuing daily with one accord in the temple, and breaking bread from house to house” Acts 2:46

“MYSTERY, BABYLON THE GREAT, THE MOTHER OF HARLOTS”

Revelation 17:5

.

But as Alexander Hislop painstakingly laid out in his book, The Two Babylons, the current-day church world is following its Mother Church, which has her roots deeply embedded in ancient Babylonian festivals, traditions, and doctrines.

.

Yes, Sunday worship is actually a weekly pagan celebration once known as “The Venerable Day of the Sun”, which Emperor Constantine incorporated into the Christian religion in attempt to make Christianity more acceptable to the pagan world.

.

Listen…“On 7 March 321, Constantine I, Rome’s first Christian Emperor (see Constantine I and Christianity), decreed that Sunday would be observed as the Roman day of rest: On the venerable Day of the Sun let the magistrates and people residing in cities rest, and let all workshops be closed.” (taken from Wikipedia)

.

And considering all the other various unbiblical and Babylonian-based holidays which the current-day church now celebrates, it should make it abundantly clear that the churches have become an integral part of this Babylonian world.

Revelation 18:4

.

The Good News is that there is still time to flee out of Babylon, and save our soul, even as it is written… “Flee out of the midst of Babylon, and deliver every man his soul: be not cut off in her iniquity; for this is the time of the LORD’S vengeance; He will render unto her a recompense. Babylon hath been a golden cup in the LORD’S hand, that made all the earth drunken: the nations have drunken of her wine; therefore the nations are mad.” Jeremiah 51:6, 7

.

Yes, God’s true worshipers are warned to flee from the wrath to come, just as surely as Lot fled out of Sodom on the morning of its tragic demise!

WHY IS THIS WOMAN RUNNING SO FAST?

.

(THE FLEEING WOMAN OF REVELATION 12: (The Fleeing Woman of Revelation 12 sketch above can be seen in winter in the northern sky. It is Ursa Major, AKA The Great Bear, and her right leg and her torso is commonly known as the The Big Dipper . She appears like this in the early fall in the pre-dawn hours, and is running westward. The pathway with Bible books of course, are the artist’s embellishment)

THE WINTER CONSTELLATIONS

.

“And there appeared a great wonder in heaven; a woman….and upon her head a crown of twelve stars: And she being with child cried, travailing in birth, and pained to be delivered. And there appeared another wonder in heaven; and behold a great red dragon….And there was war in heaven: Michael and his angels fought against the dragon….And to the woman were given two wings of a great eagle, that she might fly into the wilderness….And the serpent cast out of his mouth water as a flood after the woman, that he might cause her to be carried away of the flood.” Rev. 21:1-3, 14, 15

.

This Woman of Revelation 12 is definitely fleeing to the mountains . As you can see in this sketch below, The Dragon of Revelation 12 is spewing out his water of falsehoods: false gospels, false ideologies, various temptations, false brethren who will embrace her with the poisonous wine of the The Great Harlot of Babylon. These are what comprise this wave of water coming forth from the Dragon’s mouth. (see “Flood Waters of Satan”)

.

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.
