End-Time Exodus!

There have been a few wonderful ministries over the past decades. And some of these are still being broadcast over radio.

.

The problem is, that these past ministries were quite often designed for Christians living in what the Bible refers to as, “Babylon” (the world).

.

And so, much of the advice on these broadcasts were mingled with some really worldly advice. And most of these had some glaring errors in the doctrines presented.

“GOD WILL TEST HIS PEOPLE”

Hebrews 10:30

.

But it doesn’t mean that these Bible teachers were necessarily apostate, (though many of them were apostate). But God is testing us, to see if we love these fallible men more than we love Him and His Word! And so, God allowed erroneous teachings to be mingled into the otherwise good and biblical teachings.

JEREMIAH’S WORLDLY ADVICE!Jeremiah at the Potters House - Wikigallery - US-Public-Domain

.

Listen to the advice that God, through the Prophet, Jeremiah, gave the Jews, who were about to be taken captive in Babylon… “Thus saith the LORD of hosts, the God of Israel, unto all that are carried away captives, whom I have caused to be carried away from Jerusalem unto Babylon; Build ye houses, and dwell in them; and plant gardens, and eat the fruit of them; Take ye wives, and beget sons and daughters; and take wives for your sons, and give your daughters to husbands, that they may bear sons and daughters; that ye may be increased there, and not diminished. And seek the peace of the city whither I have caused you to be carried away captives, and pray unto the LORD for it: for in the peace thereof shall ye have peace.” Jeremiah 29:4-7

.

As this above passage advises, God’s people were commanded to accept their captivity, and to seek the peace of Babylon. Oh no, they were not to serve the King of Babylon in a spiritual capacity. But as far as being under Babylon’s civil authority, God’s people were to live among the Babylonians (unbelievers), and obey the laws of Babylon (as long as they didn’t directly oppose the Law of God).

BABYLON BRAINWASHING!

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mind_control

.

Now in these last days, the Book of Revelation declares… “And He (the mighty angel) cried mightily with a strong voice, saying, Babylon the great is fallen, is fallen…And I heard another voice from heaven, saying, Come out of her, My people, that ye be not partakers of her sins, and that ye receive not of her plagues.” Revelation 18:1, 2, 4

.

Yes, those nations which once enthusiastically embraced the great Christian Reformation, have now all been taken control of by secularists, who require our children to get a thorough indoctrination into worldly customs and ideologies, via the public school systems. And even our religious schools have so many state requirements to fulfill, that quite often, the children barely have enough time to say a prayer in the morning. And their school-day is filled up with secular requirements! Yes, our church schools have become a great big worldly sandwich, with a thin slice of Christianity!

And then, after school, they come home and watch TV, radio, or play computer games, or listen to worldly music.

.

And so, if anybody is under the notion that Christians are a free people, they had better realize that this western culture has become one giant indoctrination machine! We are being thoroughly indoctrinated to conform to the image of the Beast, which is, simply put, Satan’s governmental complex here on earth.

CREEPING COMPROMISES!

.

Unfortunately the King of Babylon (Satan) was not content to merely have Christians under his civil, worldly authority!http://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:%22Jesus_in_Jeans%22_-_geograph.org.uk_-_1367680.jpg

.

And so, Satan has gradually and ever-so imperceptibly mingled the ways and the desires of Babylon, into the warp & woof of Christianity. And Satan has mingled non-biblical doctrines into the Gospel, thereby corrupting the purity of God’s Word.

.

And he did all this to annex the sacred ground of Christianity into his own Babylonish territory!

SATAN’S TERRITORY “WHERE IT OUGHT NOT TO BE”

.

“But when ye shall see the abomination of desolation, spoken of by Daniel the prophet, standing where it ought not, (let him that readeth understand,) then let them that be in Judaea flee to the mountains: ” Mark 13:14

.

This above verse from Mark’s Gospel is a counsel to God’s people to be aware that this abomination of desolation will move into forbidden territory, “where it ought not”, to be.

.

Yes, much like any city in this land desires to annex more and more outlining communities into the borders of that city, so too, Satan has successfully surrounded and enveloped the modern-day churches and denominations into Babylon. They have been gobbled up and digested and assimilated, so to speak by the “King of Babylon…Lucifer”! (Isaiah 14:4, 12)

.

But this has not been a work of one or two years! No, for the last several centuries, ever since Satan declared his so-called, “peace-treaty” in his on-going war against Christians, he has been stealthfully creeping in and placing his own “ministers of righteousness” behind today’s pulpits. (see 2nd Corinthians 11:15)

ANTICHRISTS: JUST WORLDLY-MINDED CHRISTIANS!

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:PS_Kr%C3%B8yer_-_Hip_hip_hurra!_Kunstnerfest_p%C3%A5_Skagen_1888.jpg

.

And so, sadly, our various denominations have become filled with false-brethren, who have a semblance of spirituality, yet are not truly living by faith.

.

These are world-lings, who love and serve the King of Babylon, and yet, profess to love and serve God! They are what the Bible calls “Anti-Christs”! “They (Antichrists) are of the world”

.

Listen… “They (Anti-Christs) are of the world: therefore speak they of the world, and the world heareth them.” 1st John 4:5

“ANOTHER JESUS…ANOTHER SPIRIT…ANOTHER GOSPEL”

2nd Corinthians 11:4

http://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:Jesus-in-Jeans-by-Peter-Royle.jpg

.

Yes, as we take notice of our current-day situation, we can see their cunning deceptions all around us. The sensual music, the giddiness and jesting in our preachers, the pursuit of time-consuming and energy-sapping proud and lucrative careers, the self-absorbing pleasures, pastimes, and amusements, and the morbid desires to explore the oddities of the furthest reaches of Satan’s Kingdom of Babylon, are just a few of the corruptions which have been creeping into the church-world over the past centuries.

LIVING IN PLEASURE

.PICTURE: Unfunny Judgment Day Cartoon - companys-coming - revised

Listen to James… “Ye have lived in pleasure on the earth, and been wanton; ye have nourished your hearts, as in a day of slaughter.” James 5:5

.

James is speaking to Laodicean, lukewarm Christians! He is speaking to we who have nestled down into this hedonistic and opulent society!

.

Yes, we who have gone after the excesses of the proud and lustful riches and pleasures and pastimes which abound here!

“CEASE YE FROM MAN!”

Isaiah 2:22

.

And as far as the teachings, Satan has placed his so-called “ministers of righteousness” into our pulpits, teaching erroneous doctrines, not only in the form of spiritual advice, but also in the area of Bible prophecy.

.

Bringing in non-biblical jargon and dogma, God’s people are greatly confused, and stumbling in Babylonian darkness!

.

.

.

.

.

“COME OUT OF HER MY PEOPLE!”

Revelation 18:4

.

And so, the time of our captivity has come to an end. We have now reached thehttp://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:Tissot_The_Flight_of_the_Prisoners.jpg day when God is calling His Church-Faithful out of spiritual Babylon. No, we may not be able to come out of civil Babylon, at this present hour! But we can come completely out of spiritual Babylon! Yes, we can immediately begin to “cease ye from Man”, and begin studying the Bible for our own selves, as is written… “But the anointing which ye have received of Him abideth in you, and ye need not that any man teach you:” 1st John 2:27. 

.

Yes, we can begin to reject all the non-biblical jargon and worldly-minded doctrines, and look at the Scriptures with fresh-eyes, anointed by the daily baptism of the Spirit of Holiness!

“FLEE TO THE MOUNTAINS!”

.

And as we blow the trumpet, so to speak, and declare the iniquity of this false religious system to our former fellow church-members, we will find that Babylon will quickly begin to separate itself from us! But the Word of God declares… “Come out of her, My people, lest you share in her iniquity and receive of her plagues!” Revelation 18:4. 

.

Yes, in that soon-coming hour, when God pours out His wrath on spiritual Babylon, we just don’t want to be anywhere near her!

END-TIME EXODUS!http://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/commons/3/38/Tissot_Habakkuk.jpg

.

“And the LORD answered me, and said, Write the vision, and make it plain upon tables, that he may run that readeth it. For the vision is yet for an appointed time, but at the end it shall speak, and not lie: though it tarry, wait for it; because it will surely come, it will not tarry.” Habakkuk 2:2, 3

.

As this above passage from the Prophecy of Habakkuk declares there comes a time when God’s people are to flee! And so, O Stranger & Pilgrim, it is now high-time to come out of Mystery Babylon, The Mother Of Harlots.

OUR COMFORTABLE RELIGION

.

And though we must give up our comfortable religion, and all the fun and http://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:Genesis19-17.jpgfriendship of Babylon’s counterfeit fellowship, we will be surprised to discover that… “there shall be upon every high mountain, and upon every high hill, rivers and streams of waters in the day of the great slaughter, when the towers fall.” Isaiah 30:25. 

.

Yes, those towers are already fallen! But God has provided living waters for us upon every high mountain and upon every high hill!

.

And as we now are seeing Sodom arising all around us, we must flee to the mountain, as surely as Lot fled from the destruction of Sodom! But do not despair! Faithful Abraham is awaiting for us in that most notable mountain, ready to share his living waters and abundant fare!

TODAY’S FEATURED HEAVENLY SIGN

“NOT IN WINTER”

.

“But when ye shall see the abomination of desolation, spoken of by Daniel the prophet, standing where it ought not, (let him that readeth understand,) then let them that be in Judaea flee to the mountains…And pray ye that your flight be not in the winter.” Mark 13:14, 18

.eagle ridge ursa major stars only

.

 So just what does this above passage mean? And why does it say that we should pray that our “flight be not in the winter”?

.

Well there is no shortage of speculation as to the meaning of this passage. Many even assign this warning to only the literal Jews. Well, this would make sense, seeing that it speaks of fleeing Jerusalem.

.

THE AUTHOR HAS SHOWN UP

.

Fortunately, there needs to be no speculation about what it means. The Author of the Book has decided to show us just exactly who it is that must flee; and exactly where it is to flee to; and exactly what it is that we must flee from! Because the Author of the Book has written the answer in none other places but in the very heavens! In the very night skies!

.

You see, God has placed the major constellations in such a way, that they tell the marvelous Gospel story in pictures. And a key part of this heavenly phenomena is this Revelation 12 Woman, as she appears to being fleeing. It’s just that we’ve been so conditioned to look at these constellations in a certain way, that we have not seen them the way that God originally intended.

.

WHAT’S THE SIGNIFICANCE OF WINTER?

.

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

.

But for those who do begin to see these Bible constellations, there is a very interesting aspect to this: the timing is very revealing. You see, this constellation of this fleeing woman, appears in winter. So what’s the significance of this? You see, this above passage says… “And pray ye that your flight be not in the winter.” And so, God is telling us that we will have to make our flight in winter. So in other words, we didn’t pray; or we didn’t pray enough!

.

But the good news is just this: the place where we must flee to, is also revealed. And it is a place where each and every one of us can get to.

HEAVENLY MOUNTAINS

.

Revelation 12 Woman with Eagle Wings

.

Well, as just stated, the Lord has created a constellation which shows a woman fleeing.

.

It is called the Revelation 12 Woman Constellation, also known as Ursa Major or The Big Dipper. So if we explore this constellation in the light of the Bible, there can be a wealth of information discovered on this very topic. So come along and dig into this study. And after reading about this heavenly revelation, you just might find yourself fleeing to the mountains.

.

And maybe, just maybe, there are some much better mountains to flee to, than the ones in the above photo of Palestine! Mountains in which you can hide, where tracking devices and black helicopters are useless against you!
