The Lord’s Plan for Babylon

babylon Harlot Jer 29:11  For I know the thoughts that I think toward you, saith the LORD, thoughts of peace, and not of evil, to give you an expected end.  

The expected end for all men is their salvation.  It is sure and all flesh shall see it in the appointed times.

Luk 3:6 And all flesh shall see the salvation of God. 

The orthodox churches often cite Jeremiah 29:11 and teach it to the young and old.  They use it to promise blessing to the flesh but don’t even see the promise of salvation hidden in the verse.  It is a great verse that speaks of God’s plans for all men in due time but specifically for now, speaks to the plan for His Elect.  Ironically, it is from a chapter that speaks about going into captivity in Babylon from which Babylon churches pluck this verse to support their carnal doctrines that completely miss the truth of God’s word.

The Lord has a plan for us indeed and that plan is for us to go into Babylon and spend our appointed time.  Nothing is by chance, the Lord is working it all.

Jer 29:10For thus saith the LORD, That after seventy years be accomplished at Babylon I will visit you, and perform my good word toward you, in causing you to return to this place. (come out of her and return to Jerusalem above)

My purpose here is not to bash Babylon.  God knows I have done that long enough.  My purpose is the show to those God has opened eyes and ears, a little of God’s plan and help them to see that one’s time spent in Babylon was ordained of the Lord before we were ever born.

Psa 139:16Thine eyes did see my substance, yet being unperfect; and in thy book all my members were written, which in continuance were fashioned, when as yet there was none of them.

Isa 46:10Declaring the end from the beginning, and from ancient times the things that are not yet done, saying, My counsel shall stand, and I will do all my pleasure:

Our stay in Babylon is when we will fulfill these Scriptures and claim His name yet do not even know Him blinded by the veil of flesh and the carnal mind.

2Th 2:11 And for this cause God shall send them strong delusion, that they should believe a lie:

Isa 28:13 But the word of the LORD was unto them precept upon precept, precept upon precept; line upon line, line upon line; here a little, and there a little; that they might go, and fall backward, and be broken, and snared, and taken.

I went thru a stage, that all of God’s Elect will have to go thru in living by every word of God.   Before we are given to see Babylon’s purposes, we will hate it and want to heap condemnation and judgment upon the very same system we ourselves had just been delivered from by the hand of God.  Babylon serves a valuable purpose for the Lord in bringing people to Himself. Only a few in this life, will be dragged out of Babylon and it is because of their unbelief, what was written for them, that the few chosen have even been given their faith as a gift from God.

Rom 11:30 For as ye (God’s Elect) in times past have not believed God, yet have now obtained mercy through their unbelief:

It takes time to appreciate and to understand this when we first come into the truth. When we first realize what Babylon has done to us, keeping us in bondage and spiritual darkness, perhaps for our whole life, we will hate the harlot. This too is a work of God and is working good in us in the end.  The complete (10 headed) beast that all men are will want to kill this harlot.

Rev 17:16 And the ten horns which thou sawest upon the beast, these shall hate the whore, and shall make her desolate and naked, and shall eat her flesh, and burn her with fire.

As we come out of Babylon, the Lord will be showing us that we are this beast, a self righteous religious one at that, the chief of sinners, the abomination causing desolation, etc; and our first inclination will be to get vengeance on the system and the people who lied to us all those years and continue to deceive our friends, families and loved ones.  We will seek to destroy the whore harlot churches with fire.  This fire is the word of God and we will be quick to judge, condemn and find fault with everyone and everything.  Our intentions will be good, we want to show them what has been shown us, but we are not mature enough yet to share it as God has some wicked things to deal with us first.  At this point, we will still be carnal and judging men after the flesh but that will soon change as we mature into the doctrines of Christ.

2Co 5:16 Wherefore henceforth know we no man after the flesh: yea, though we have known Christ after the flesh, yet now henceforth know we him no more. 

As we grow in the knowledge of the Lord and HIS CHRIST,  we will stop blaming others and holding them responsible for their behavior.  Oh that sounds like foolishness to the carnal mind but is a truth and key to knowing the mysteries of the kingdom.

Joh 15:5 I am the vine, ye are the branches: He that abideth in me, and I in him, the same bringeth forth much fruit: for without me ye can do nothing. (this includes all things, good and bad, even our very sins)

Isa 64:8 But now, O LORD, thou art our father; we are the clay, and thou our potter; and we all are the work of thy hand.

I know many that have been led part way out of Babylon but for now are stuck on this stage.  They have been shown the sloppy grace being taught in most churches but they are still under the law of Moses and this law was for the unrighteous.  The law is for a carnal nation within and contain carnal commandments. This law and repentance mode of John the Baptist is good as it serves its purposes in drawing us to Christ.  Still the veil of flesh must be taken out of the way to enter the kingdom of God.

2Co 3:14But their minds were blinded: for until this day remaineth the same vail untaken away in the reading of the old testament; which vail is done away in Christ.

2Co 3:15 But even unto this day, when Moses is read, the vail is upon their heart.

2Co 3:16 Nevertheless when it shall turn to the Lord, the vail shall be taken away.

With that veil still there we have NO understanding in our carnal mind even though we may know many scriptures. We all will argue vehemently, that we are converted long before we really are just as Peter and all the disciples learned with time.  In type and shadow, carnal Christians are fulfilling the life of John the Baptist.  They are the forerunner to the coming of the Lord within them and whether their judgment begin in this life and the Lord from heaven is revealed only the Father knows.   We all must first be baptized into Babylonian doctrines as Christs’s baptism by John shows us. Very few shall find the way into the kingdom. The rest will have to wait to be converted in the lake of fire.

These carnal minded “holiness” types will preach against sin and repentance but can’t see past the delusion of free will.  They are like John the Baptist, who we are told is very great relative to those yet carnal but still less then the least person who has been converted (entered into the kingdom of God).  John represents in type and shadow, the last stage of our carnal mindedness in serving God as we live by every word.  We think we are serving the Lord in truth and in spirit at that time, but we don’t even yet know Him.  He has not appeared and our judgment has not begun.  The carnal John in all of us must be decreased so Christ can be increased and in due time it will happen as ordained of God.  That decrease will come when judgment falls upon us.  While in this late state carnal phase, we too will all think only of this whore harlot outwardly and will forget where to look, which is inwardly.  We all will think we serve God and are doing Him a service in our ignorance.

Mat 11:11 Verily I say unto you, Among them that are born of women (FLESH) there hath not risen a greater than John the Baptist: notwithstanding he that is least in the kingdom of heaven is greater than he.

Luk 7:28  For I say unto you, Among those that are born of women there is not a greater prophet than John the Baptist: but he that is least in the kingdom of God is greater than he.

What will change one’s mind on Babylon is when they are given to see that God is truly working all things, even having us go into Babylon and be in bondage for all those days.  When we condemn and judge those in Babylon, we are judging another’s servant and we are commanded not to do this.  God is causing and working all things and we need to stay out of His way.

Rom 14:4 Who art thou that judgest another man’s servant? to his own master he standeth or falleth. Yea, he shall be holden up: for God is able to make him stand.

That like all things we do is the work of the Potter. Let’s look at just one pivotal chapter that was written not for those that lived back then (1 Peter 1:12) but was written for us, those whom God has given HIS Spirit too and upon whom the ends of the carnal age have come.

1Co 10:11 Now all these things happened unto them for ensamples: and they are written for our admonition, upon whom the ends of the world are come.

JEREMIAH 29

Jer 29:1 Now these are the words of the letter that Jeremiah the prophet sent from Jerusalem unto the residue of the elders which were carried away captives, and to the priests, and to the prophets, and to all the people whom Nebuchadnezzar had carried away captive from Jerusalem to Babylon.

These are the words spoken by God’s prophets (the Elect in type and shadow) to all of God’s Elect (God’s priest and prophets)  who are still lost in Babylon. Man must live by every word God spoke and all of God’s Elect, even Saul of Tarsus must come out of Babylon in the appointed times.  Like Christ, as His Christ we are only to go to the lost house of Israel and they are scattered in Babylon until their time to be found arrives.

Jer 29:4 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;

Did you catch here who did it? Who causes these people to be carried away into bondage in Babylon? It was the Lord. So we will learn to quit judging in the flesh the things God is doing and HE has put the multitudes, the billions of people into the orthodox churches of men.

This is the Lord’s plan, we all have to go spend our appointed symbolic 70 years in Babylon. Here is that prophecy, verse 1 quoted in Matthew 2:15 and referring to Jesus Christ.  yet all of this prophecy from Hosea applies to CHRIST, His Body,  the very Elect of God.

Hos 11:1When Israel (MY ELECT) was a child, then I loved him, and called my son out of Egypt.
Hos 11:2As they called them, so they went from them: they sacrificed unto Baalim, and burned incense to graven images.
Hos 11:3I taught Ephraim also to go, taking them by their arms; but they knew not that I healed them.
Hos 11:4I drew them with cords of a man, with bands of love: and I was to them as they that take off the yoke on their jaws, and I laid meat unto them.
Hos 11:5He shall not return into the land of Egypt, but the Assyrian (same thing as Babylon) shall be his king, because they refused to return.

God’s Elect will not go backwards into the world, but will stay under bondage to the flesh and carnal mind.   Our carnal mind (Pharaoh) or this Assyrian or Nebuchadnezzar shall  be our king.  Walking as carnal men we will make and worship the image of the beast while we are in Babylon spiritually speaking.  But in due time, the sword, the word of God, will continue to abide on our inward cities and will cut off this branches that bear no spiritual fruit as the righteous judgment of God first comes upon us, God’s very Elect.  This battle takes place inwardly, in the cities and kingdom’s within.  That is the battleground.

Hos 11:6 And the sword shall abide on his cities, and shall consume his branches, and devour them, because of their own counsels.

We must never forget where the kingdom of God truly is (Luke 17:21).  Our natural inclination will be to look outwardly and pin all of these Scriptures on the deceived guy down the street, but they really speak primarily about you and me.  Babylon is first and foremost a mindset and it is within us and this harlot woman rides our beast and help keep that beast sitting comfortably on God’s throne trusting in its own righteousness.  Babylon most certainly represents the organized religion and orthodox institutions of men but it also within us, it is a state of mind to be carnal and to mix the things of the world with the things of God.  That mind is the land that must be cleared of all the giants and things which defile.

Few Will Come Out of Her My People

All of God’s people will come thru Babylon.  No exceptions.  We will come out when we hear spiritually the call to come out.

Rev 18:4 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.

The Lord causes all of us to go into Babylon spiritually and this includes all systems of religion or spirituality even atheist. And like ALL THINGS, it is also the Lord who causes the very few of His Elect to come out of Babylon. Here is just one example from Ezra. We see first that the Lord caused the king of Cyrus to make the proclamation that led to the return of the captives.

Ezr 1:1 Now in the first year of Cyrus king of Persia, that the word of the LORD by the mouth of Jeremiah might be fulfilled, the LORD stirred up the spirit of Cyrus king of Persia, that he made a proclamation throughout all his kingdom, and put it also in writing, saying,

And lest we missed it and still are thinking, no but the Jews had to choose to go back to Jerusalem, we must remember that yes we make choices, but those choices are all caused because the Lord gives us our every thought and all the desires of our heart. So here we can see who really is the cause of the few that leave Babylon.

Ezr 1:5 Then rose up the chief of the fathers of Judah and Benjamin, and the priests, and the Levites, with all them whose spirit God had raised, to go up to build the house of the LORD which is in Jerusalem.

Who caused it? It was the Lord. The flesh just cannot accept this and their eyes can’t see such a plain and simple truth that is throughout the Scripture.  I have shown these Scriptures plainly to people arguing that we must choose to leave Babylon on our own free will.  But they cannot see, the pride of life has them blinded as that is the Lord’s plan for them now.

All during this symbolic 70 years in Babylon we will build houses, plant gardens, and eat the fruit, this all speaking to us serving the Lord in the flesh and mixing the things of this world and its traditions and principles with the things of God. That is spiritual fornication.  We will be eating, drinking and giving in marriage just as in the days of Noah all the while we are in Babylon.

Jer 29:5 Build ye houses, and dwell in them; and plant gardens, and eat the fruit of them;
Jer 29:6 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 the Lord will increase us while we are in Babylon just as verses 5-6 show. This is one way the multitudes stay blind, they appear to be blessed and are in actuality as the rain of God falls on both the righteous and the wicked. The Lord even causes real outward changes in our lives, miraculous healing’s, deliverance from addictions and lusts; but are hearts remain unconverted and we are yet carnal.  These are the lying signs of wonders spoken about in 2 Thess 2 and Revelation 13 given to keep the beast sitting on God’s throne.  This is us living in the strong delusion of the veil of flesh.

Jer 29:7 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.

We will even have peace. Life will be good. We will be like JOB before his day of judgment. We will think we have arrived.

Job 1:1 There was a man in the land of Uz, whose name was Job; and that man was perfect and upright, and one that feared God, and eschewed evil.

But this peace we have here is a false peace, it is the deception and spiritual darkness we all must first live thru until our time to come out of her my people truly arrives. We will listen to those who say “peace and safety” when there is no true peace. We will put ourselves under those who divine lies, prophesy falsely and heal the wound of the people but only superficially.

Isa 30:10 Which say to the seers, See not; and to the prophets, Prophesy not unto us right things, speak unto us smooth things, prophesy deceits:

Jer 7:4 Trust ye not in lying words, saying, The temple of the LORD, The temple of the LORD, The temple of the LORD, are these.

1Th 5:3 For when they shall say, Peace and safety; then sudden destruction cometh upon them, as travail upon a woman with child; and they shall not escape.

Jer 8:11 For they have healed the hurt of the daughter of my people slightly, saying, Peace, peace; when there is no peace.

We will however not at first heed the words of the Lord and listen to His true prophets. We will be deceived by Babylon and dream our own dream, thinking we have free will and are in charge of our life.  We will follow the lying prophets the Lord has saw fit to make many in Babylon.

Jer 29:8 For thus saith the LORD of hosts, the God of Israel; Let not your prophets and your diviners, that be in the midst of you, deceive you, neither hearken to your dreams which ye cause to be dreamed.
Jer 29:9 For they prophesy falsely unto you in my name: I have not sent them, saith the LORD.

Lest we forget who is causing all things to happen, even evil things and false prophets!

Eze 14:9 And if the prophet be deceived when he hath spoken a thing, I the LORD have deceived that prophet, and I will stretch out my hand upon him, and will destroy him from the midst of my people Israel.

And the Lord will show us this in due time. After our appointed time of captivity has come, HE promises to come visit us and bring us out. He did for me and will do it for all of God’s Elect. The Lord has a plan for His people, the apple of His eye. It is all for good, a good plan and not for evil. The end shall be salvation. Praise God.  This is huge if you can believe it.

Jer 29:10 For thus saith the LORD, That after seventy years be accomplished at Babylon I will visit you, and perform my good word toward you, in causing you to return to this place.

Again, the carnal minded “free willers” have no place to stand, their lies crumble with any examination of Scripture.  And this next  Scripture, Jeremiah 29:11  is cited often in Babylon as we are taught falsely that the Lord is speaking about blessing our flesh and making us comfortable and content living in this world. That is not the Lord’s plan as His plans for good actually speak of coming to judge and destroy our old man and carnal nature and through the desolation, to bring the lightness, the new man, Christ in us, up from the darkness.

Jer 29:11 For I know the thoughts that I think toward you, saith the LORD, thoughts of peace, and not of evil, to give you an expected end.

Here is that plan summed up nicely by the Apostle.

1Co 15:46 Howbeit that was not first which is spiritual, but that which is natural; and afterward that which is spiritual.
1Co 15:47 The first man is of the earth, earthy: the second man is the Lord from heaven.
1Co 15:48 As is the earthy, such are they also that are earthy: and as is the heavenly, such are they also that are heavenly.
1Co 15:49 And as we have borne the image of the earthy, we shall also bear the image of the heavenly.
1Co 15:50 Now this I say, brethren, that flesh and blood cannot inherit the kingdom of God; neither doth corruption inherit incorruption.

Babylon knows verse 50 very well, but does not know how to apply it and teaches that the Lord is in the flesh blessing business but that is another jesus.  When Christ truly appears to us, He comes to bring judgment upon our old man and carnal mind.  That is the mystery of how He saves ALL MEN in their appointed times.

1Pe 4:17 For the time is come that judgment must begin at the house of God: (THE ELECT)  and if it first begin at us, what shall the end be of them that obey not the gospel of God?

This is the riddle and the parable of salvation that God will reveal to you after judgment has begun and you look behind and can see God at work.  Salvation comes throught the righteous judgment of God.

Joh 12:47 And if any man hear my words, and believe not, I judge him not: for I came not to judge the world, but to save the world.
Joh 12:48 He that rejecteth me, and receiveth not my words, hath one that judgeth him: the word that I have spoken, the same shall judge him in the last day.

Rev 15:8  And the temple was filled with smoke from the glory of God, and from his power; and no man was able to enter into the temple, till the seven plagues of the seven angels were fulfilled. 

And after the Lord has visited us and dragged us out then with true faith, we shall call upon Him and pray unto Him and He will hearken unto the prayers of a righteous man. As we endure fiery trials and judgment we will come to our wits end and cry out unto the Lord.  We can ask for anything consistent with His will and HE will perform it. How great is that!

Jer 29:12 Then shall ye call upon me, and ye shall go and pray unto me, and I will hearken unto you.
Jer 29:13 And ye shall seek me, and find me, when ye shall search for me with all your heart.

Psa 107:28 Then they cry unto the LORD in their trouble, and he bringeth them out of their distresses.

When Christ appears to us inwardly a second time for salvation without sin, the bonds of captivity are cut and we are truly free in Christ Jesus.  Henceforth we will be under grace and truth and not the law of Moses that brings death.  This is all the work of God, it is not our work, HE scatters us into Babylon as His Elect and He also brings us back. Carnal men will continue to deny the Lord with the lie of free moral agency. Here is some good news.

Jer 29:14 And I will be found of you, saith the LORD: and I will turn away your captivity, and I will gather you from all the nations, and from all the places whither I have driven you, saith the LORD; and I will bring you again into the place whence I caused you to be carried away captive.

The rest of this Chapter is speaking of the Lord having vengeance for His temple and recompensing upon us, HIS ELECT, the punishment for our sins and rebellion while in Babylon. That is right, we all will reap what we have sown.  This is actually the good news, the judgment of God against our old man and carnal mind, which is sweeter than honey and more desirable than gold.

Jer 29:15 Because ye have said, The LORD hath raised us up prophets in Babylon;
Jer 29:16 Know that thus saith the LORD of the king that sitteth upon the throne of David, and of all the people that dwelleth in this city, and of your brethren that are not gone forth with you into captivity;

See this v16 – the Lord is the Potter directing the steps of all men, those in Babylon now and even the very few that are now out of Babylon. The Lord is causing all things for the counsel of His will, free will is the strong delusion of the carnal mind. And look at what is promised for God’s Elect, once they come out of Babylon. We will be hated and rejected of all men and follow the Lord. Our words and doctrines will be darkness and evil to those that walk after the flesh and they will not understand. This is what is necessary for God to finish His good work in His Elect, to strip us of all our pride, ego and fleshly strength. This is how we are humbled in our appointed times by His fiery judgments.

Jer 29:17 Thus saith the LORD of hosts; Behold, I will send upon them the sword, the famine, and the pestilence, and will make them like vile figs, that cannot be eaten, they are so evil.
Jer 29:18 And I will persecute them with the sword, with the famine, and with the pestilence, and will deliver them to be removed to all the kingdoms of the earth, to be a curse, and an astonishment, and an hissing, and a reproach, among all the nations whither I have driven them:
Jer 29:19 Because they have not hearkened to my words, saith the LORD, which I sent unto them by my servants the prophets, rising up early and sending them; but ye would not hear, saith the LORD.
Jer 29:20 Hear ye therefore the word of the LORD, all ye of the captivity, whom I have sent from Jerusalem to Babylon:

Being a hissing and a reproach is not fun to the carnal mind. It is our natural inclination and human nature to strongly desire to fit in with those around us. But God’s Elect that are dragged out of Babylon are indeed a peculiar people, likened to aliens and strangers in a foreign land. We will stand out like sore thumbs or like Joseph who was given a coat of many colors by his Father. God’s Elect have been given that coat spiritually, and the world will hate us for it, just as Joseph’s brothers hated him. We will learn to count these things as joy as we understand them and know what great blessing has fallen upon us to be dragged out of Babylon.

Gen 37:3 Now Israel loved Joseph more than all his children, because he was the son of his old age: and he made him a coat of many colours.
Gen 37:4 And when his brethren saw that their father loved him more than all his brethren, they hated him, and could not speak peaceably unto him.

All of God’s elect will be given a coat of many colors in due time.  This will cause them to be hated and rejected of all men, even without a cause just as they hated our Lord.  This is the same enmity that God put between the seed of the serpent and the seed of the woman in the story of Adam and Eve.

Gen 3:15 And I will put enmity between thee and the woman, and between thy seed and her seed; it shall bruise thy head, and thou shalt bruise his heel.

Joh 15:18 If the world hate you, ye know that it hated me before it hated you.
Joh 15:19 If ye were of the world, the world would love his own: but because ye are not of the world, but I have chosen you out of the world, therefore the world hateth you.

2Ti 3:12 Yea, and all that will live godly in Christ Jesus shall suffer persecution.

Conclusion

So knowing these truths, I have come to stop ragging on Babylon. You will too in due time if you are currently ragging on the whore harlot churches of men.  The Lord is deceiving those prophets, it is not them, so we will stop judging them after the flesh and acknowledge this is the work of the Lord.

Once you see this, you will have mercy on them knowing that you coming out of Babylon was nothing to do with you, it was all the work of God. And that is what it is, the Lord is in the process of calling out the few that will be the judges and rulers of this world with Him in the ages to come. They will be merciful judges and it is thru the process of being shown our own wickedness and being delivered from it, knowing we had nothing to do with it, that we in turn will show mercy to all men.

Rom 11:30 For as ye in times past have not believed God, yet have now obtained mercy through their unbelief:
Rom 11:31 Even so have these also now not believed, that through your mercy they also may obtain mercy.
Rom 11:32 For God hath concluded them all in unbelief, that he might have mercy upon all. (Universal Salvation)
Rom 11:33 O the depth of the riches both of the wisdom and knowledge of God! how unsearchable are his judgments, and his ways past finding out!

And showing that mercy will be a big role God’s Elect are being prepared for right now.

Oba 1:21 And saviours shall come up on mount Zion to judge the mount of Esau (those that walk after the flesh); and the kingdom shall be the LORD’S.

1Co 6:2 Do ye not know that the saints shall judge the world? and if the world shall be judged by you, are ye unworthy to judge the smallest matters?
1Co 6:3 Know ye not that we shall judge angels? how much more things that pertain to this life?

Mat 19:28 And Jesus said unto them, Verily I say unto you, That ye which have followed me, in the regeneration when the Son of man shall sit in the throne of his glory, ye also shall sit upon twelve thrones, judging the twelve tribes of Israel.

This is the prize and the upward calling of God for which we strive to attain to the first resurrection!!!!!

Rev 20:4 And I saw thrones, and they sat upon them, and judgment was given unto them: and I saw the souls of them that were beheaded for the witness of Jesus, and for the word of God, and which had not worshipped the beast, neither his image, neither had received his mark upon their foreheads, or in their hands; and they lived and reigned with Christ a thousand years.

What a wonderful God we serve. His plans for all of us are for good. The hardships and evil we experience in this life is for His purposes and these things must be.

Gen 3:22And the LORD God said, Behold, the man is become as one of us, to know good and evil: and now, lest he put forth his hand, and take also of the tree of life, and eat, and live for ever:

I hope this has blessed you and opened your eyes of understanding.  Sincere questions can be emailed to me at peterjwilson56@gmail.com

Lying Signs and Wonders

beast withinMat 24:24 For there shall arise false Christs, and false prophets, and shall shew great signs and wonders; insomuch that, if it were possible, they shall deceive the very elect.

The end of the age (AION) comes at midnight the darkest part of the night.  It comes at the very peak of our spiritual deception when we are madly inflamed on wine and staggering in spiritual drunkenness.

Mat 25:6 And at midnight there was a cry made, Behold, the bridegroom cometh; go ye out to meet him.

Our falling away into God’s strong delusion must precede the coming of the Lord to us the second time for salvation without sin. We will be spiritually dead worshiping the beast within before the Lord will drag us to Him and suddenly appear and bring salvation to us.

Heb 9:27 And as it is appointed unto men once to die, but after this the judgment:
Heb 9:28 So Christ was once offered to bear the sins of many; and unto them that look for him shall he appear the second time without sin unto salvation.

We will never understand any of this until after we have lived it.  We will look behind where we have come with new God given ears to hear and then we shall also see the plan and purposes of the Lord.  None of us will see spiritually until our day of judgment. All of us will be shut up in spiritual darkness until then. Judgment first comes to the house of God as Peter wrote and it is this process that will awaken us to the true righteousness of Christ.

1Pe 4:17  For the time is come that judgment must begin at the house of God

In the meantime those called of God will be deceived by lying signs and wonders and the many false prophets The Lord sends into our lives.  Christ said His purpose in coming was for judgment and that would be brought by making those that claim to see blind.

Joh 9:39 And Jesus said, For judgment I am come into this world, that they which see not might see; and that they which see might be made blind.

God’s Elect, the chosen few will be the first redeemed from the earth and will live by every word God has spoken. This means they will first be deceived by the false ministers of Babylon and the lying signs and wonders that God causes that make the deception and spiritual blindness so pervasive. We as His Elect will first claim we see but will be totally spiritually blind just like all of Orthodox Christianity.  However, in our appointed time, those few chosen of God will come out of the harlot.  It will take some time for all the plagues of God to destroy our carnal mind and all the deceptions we had trusted and had learned.

This woman is the apostate church that represents orthodox Christianity that will be very appealing on the outside arrayed with all the fine things of God yet her hands hold a cup full of all her impure and defiled doctrines of devils that mix the things of God with the things of this world.

Rev 17:4 And the woman was arrayed in purple and scarlet colour, and decked with gold and precious stones and pearls, having a golden cup in her hand full of abominations and filthiness of her fornication:

Rev 17:5 And upon her forehead was a name written, MYSTERY, BABYLON THE GREAT, THE MOTHER OF HARLOTS AND ABOMINATIONS OF THE EARTH.

The harlot and the signs and wonders we see while part of this harlot are very convincing. This post will focus on these lying signs and wonders that are used of God to deceive us and keep us in the bondage of Babylon for our appointed 70 years. Some may have an ear to hear and will be edified by knowing these things are true.

The Falling Away (ours) Must Come First

Evening always precedes the morning.  Darkness comes before the light.  God is calling light out of the darkness He purposefully creates.

Gen 1:1 In the beginning God created the heaven and the earth.
Gen 1:2 And the earth was without form, and void; and darkness was upon the face of the deep. And the Spirit of God moved upon the face of the waters.
Gen 1:3 And God said, Let there be light: and there was light.

The way salvation comes and the eternal (“aionious” in the Greek) life that comes with it, that is knowing Christ and the Father is that we individually must fall away first into great spiritual deception. There is no avoiding it. All who come in the presence of Christ first fall backwards.

Isa 28:13 But the word of the LORD was unto them precept upon precept, precept upon precept; line upon line, line upon line; here a little, and there a little; that they might go, and fall backward, and be broken, and snared, and taken.

Paul who himself had an astonishing experience of first walking in strong delusion, mentioned this often to the early believers. The falling away must come first!

2Th 2:1 Now we beseech you, brethren, by the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ, and by our gathering together unto him,

2Th 2:2 That ye be not soon shaken in mind, or be troubled, neither by spirit, nor by word, nor by letter as from us, as that the day of Christ is at hand.

2Th 2:3 Let no man deceive you by any means: for that day shall not come, except there come a falling away first, and that man of sin be revealed, the son of perdition;

2Th 2:4 Who opposeth and exalteth himself above all that is called God, or that is worshipped; so that he as God sitteth in the temple of God, shewing himself that he is God.

2Th 2:5 Remember ye not, that, when I was yet with you, I told you these things?

Living by every word includes falling away. The beast that we all are has to first be exalted onto God’s throne in our hearts and worshiped by us and then this same beast, the man of sin will need to be revealed to us in our day of judgment. These words of Paul and all the words of Christ are living words that is, was and will be. These were not speaking to some future event regarding orthodox Christianity 2,000 years in the future. That is what the carnal man believes yet the truth is the corporate church had already fallen away before the Bible was even finished being written.

1Jn 2:18 Little children, it is the last time: and as ye have heard that antichrist shall come, even now are there many antichrists; whereby we know that it is the last time.

Act 20:29 For I know this, that after my departing shall grievous wolves enter in among you, not sparing the flock.

Act 20:30 Also of your own selves shall men arise, speaking perverse things, to draw away disciples after them.

Act 20:31 Therefore watch, and remember, that by the space of three years I ceased not to warn every one night and day with tears.

Each supposed reformation (i.e Martin Luther) just formed a new layer of deception and built more lies upon the false foundation of another jesus. Major heresy and damnable lies such as eternal torment, the fall of man, the trinity, man having free will were just covered up with more lies and the truth was totally blotted out of the orthodox churches. People like to quote “early” church leaders from the first few centuries, yet these were of the apostate church that had already blossomed from the days of the Apostles.

In fact late in Paul’s ministry, he told Timothy that ALL those in Asia, in all the churches he had started had forsaken him and had fallen into apostasy.  The great falling away was not some event set 2,000 years out that had no effect to the generations that have preceded us here in 2013.

2Ti 1:15 This thou knowest, that all they which are in Asia be turned away from me; of whom are Phygellus and Hermogenes.

Talk about a lonely road!  Even Demas and our beloved Titus who Paul wrote a letter to in our Bibles fell away and went back into this present world.  The deadly wound to his beastly head was healed and he fall away from the truth going back to the elementary principles of this world.  Which is what we all will do until we are dragged out by God.

2Ti 4:10 For Demas hath forsaken me, having loved this present world, and is departed unto Thessalonica; Crescens to Galatia, Titus unto Dalmatia.

The lying signs and wonders will deceive every man and it is only God’s Elect who will be rescued from the deception by the mercy of the Lord.  But this is God’s plan, His will has been done in this regard, and we are going to look at some of the ways God uses to keep the multitudes bound in total spiritual darkness with a veil over their eyes.

God’s Elect will only come to know the truth by looking behind themselves and seeing after the fact what God had done all along. We all live the examples given us of ancient Israel. They and you and me will rebel against God all the while thinking we are doing Him a service and are in good stead. Those stories were not written for them that lived then, nor are they a history lesson, they were written for our admonition upon whom the end of the age have come.

1Pe 1:12 Unto whom it was revealed, that not unto themselves, but unto us they did minister the things, which are now reported unto you by them that have preached the gospel unto you with the Holy Ghost sent down from heaven; which things the angels desire to look into.

Out of Egypt Into Babylon/Assyria

The plan for the people of God is to go into Babylon when they first come out of Egypt. Here they will spend their appointed years in captivity and bondage to the carnal doctrines of Orthodox Christianity.

Hos 11:1 When Israel (God’s Elect) was a child, then I loved him, and called my son out of Egypt.

Hos 11:2 As they called them, so they went from them: they sacrificed unto Baalim, and burned incense to graven images.

Hos 11:3 I taught Ephraim also to go, taking them by their arms; but they knew not that I healed them.

Hos 11:4 I drew them with cords of a man, with bands of love: and I was to them as they that take off the yoke on their jaws, and I laid meat unto them.

Hos 11:5 He shall not return into the land of Egypt, but the Assyrian shall be his king, because they refused to return.

This indeed is one of the spiritual lessons that the Old Testament is given to tell those with ears to hear what will have been their journey before Christ is revealed to them.

1Co 10:11 Now all these things happened unto them for ensamples: and they are written for our admonition, upon whom the ends of the ages (world) are come.

We all are snared by that woman Jezebel, spending time in the all seven churches of the book of Revelation which is just bible speak for one church. Seven being the number of completion in the Scriptures. We will think we have arrived and need not anymore repentance.

Rev 2:20 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.

Jezebel represents the spiritual whore Babylon and her doctrines, a.k.a. the ninety and nine who thought they do not need repentance. They truly believe that they are the true church of God with all their signs and wonders and all their good works they count for their own righteousness.

Pro 30:20 Such is the way of an adulterous woman; she eateth, and wipeth her mouth, and saith, I have done no wickedness.

But when in Babylon we are fornicating with the harlot, we are eating poisoned food and bitter waters all the while claiming to not be a widow and that Christ is our husband. We will not yet know nor believe that we are a wretched man and the chief of sinners.

Mar 2:17 When Jesus heard it, he saith unto them, They that are whole have no need of the physician, but they that are sick: I came not to call the righteous, but sinners to repentance.

Luk 15:7 I say unto you, that likewise joy shall be in heaven over one sinner that repenteth, more than over ninety and nine just persons, which need no repentance.

Only God’s Elect Shall Eat True Bread

To be in Christ we must eat of His body.  When Christ dwells in us we are in Christ and He is in us.

Joh 6:54 Whoso eateth my flesh, and drinketh my blood, hath eternal life; and I will raise him up at the last day.
Joh 6:55 For my flesh is meat indeed, and my blood is drink indeed.
Joh 6:56 He that eateth my flesh, and drinketh my blood, dwelleth in me, and I in him.

Yet only the few, not the many called are given this bread to eat.  It is not up to man or his delusion of free will to choose to eat this bread, it is indeed given to us.

Joh 6:65 And he said, Therefore said I unto you, that no man can come unto me, except it were GIVEN unto him of my Father.

God’s plan and purposes is to call a few out of the many to be His Elect and continue the ministry of Jesus Christ. As the body of Christ, only God’s Elect are given the right to eat at the altar. Jesus Christ is the true bread from heaven and this is only given to His chosen few to partake of in this life.

Heb 13:10 We have an altar, whereof they have no right to eat which serve the tabernacle.

None of this is based on any merit, it is all given to men based on God’s purposes and declarations regarding Election. His counsel shall stand not matter what the wise men of Babylon or the reasoning’s of religious men say.

1Co 2:6 Howbeit we speak wisdom among them that are perfect: yet not the wisdom of this world, nor of the princes of this world, that come to nought:

1Co 2:7 But we speak the wisdom of God in a mystery, even the hidden wisdom, which God ordained before the world unto our glory:

Those in Babylon will hate us for these words and for the coat of many colors we are given by God. The story of Joseph tells of God’s dealings with His Elect.

Gen 37:3 Now Israel loved Joseph more than all his children, because he was the son of his old age: and he made him a coat of many colours.

Gen 37:4 And when his brethren saw that their father loved him more than all his brethren, they hated him, and could not speak peaceably unto him.

I have learned this lesson. Being persecuted and hated for simply speaking the truth of God’s word. This is the walk of God’s Elect who are blessed when they are persecuted for righteousness and His name.  Those that remain in spiritual darkness cannot bring themselves to speak peaceably to God’s Elect. God put enmity in their hearts and is working all things for the counsel of His will. All things a man has or does not have is all the Lord’s doing. There is nothing any man has received that was not given to us by God.

1Co 4:7 For who maketh thee to differ from another? and what hast thou that thou didst not receive? now if thou didst receive it, why dost thou glory, as if thou hadst not received it?

The Levites versus the Priests

Many are called and few are chosen. It is the very Elect, who are the only priests of God. Only they can handle the instruments of the temple of God, which is His word. The Levites who are in type and shadow, those in Babylon only serve the tabernacle of the congregation, but they cannot go past the veil (the flesh) nor handle the instruments in the temple, lest they die.

Num 4:15 And when Aaron and his sons have made an end of covering the sanctuary, and all the vessels of the sanctuary, as the camp is to set forward; after that, the sons of Kohath shall come to bear it: but they shall not touch any holy thing, lest they die. These things are the burden of the sons of Kohath [the Levites] in the tabernacle of the congregation.

Lev 10:13 And ye [Aaron and his sons] shall eat it in the holy place, because it is thy due, and thy sons’ due, of the sacrifices of the LORD made by fire: for so I am commanded.

The altar in the holy place is the golden altar of incense, and no mere Levite who is not the seed of Aaron the high priest was ever to eat at that altar. The high priest is a type of Christ as our high priest.

“They which serve the tabernacle” but “have no right to eat” with us, are those who are “carried about by different and strange doctrines” because they fear offending their brothers who think nothing of eating “meat offered to idols” and thereby causing weak brothers to think there is nothing wrong with eating meat offered to idols. Meat offered to idols is the doctrines of Babylon and the doctrines of those who serve the tabernacles, and are “carried about by different and strange doctrines which Paul calls “the cup of devils”.

1Co 10:21 Ye cannot drink the cup of the Lord, and the cup of devils: ye cannot be partakers of the Lord’s table, and of the table of devils.


Num 18:2 And thy brethren also of the tribe of Levi, the tribe of thy father, bring thou with thee, that they may be joined unto thee, and minister unto thee: but thou and thy sons with thee [shall minister] before the tabernacle of witness.
Num 18:3 And they shall keep thy charge, and the charge of all the tabernacle: only they shall not come nigh the vessels of the sanctuary and the altar, that neither they, nor ye also, die.
Num 18:4 And they shall be joined unto thee, and keep the charge of the tabernacle of the congregation, for all the service of the tabernacle: and a stranger shall not come nigh unto you.
Num 18:5 And ye shall keep the charge of the sanctuary, and the charge of the altar: that there be no wrath any more upon the children of Israel.

Those so blessed to be given the faith of Christ and the revelation of Jesus inwardly eat at the altar of God for which the multitudes have no right to eat. Those in Babylon have no right to eat of the true things of God. Such treasures must be given only to those God has chosen since before the foundations of the world. Those in Babylon will hate us for the favor God has shown.

Heb 13:10 We have an altar, whereof they have no right to eat which serve the tabernacle.

It is the stark contrast between the Levites who are the priests, the sons of Aaron, as opposed to the Levites, who are not priests, but who are commanded to “keep the charge of the tabernacle”, which demonstrates the spiritual meaning of “Many are called but few are chosen”.

Mat 22:14 For many are called, but few are chosen.

Only the priests, the sons of Aaron are able to enter into the tabernacle to do the service “within the vail” of the tabernacle.  Getting past the veil is getting past the flesh and the carnal mind and that only by the gift of God in our appointed times.  Until that day comes, we and the all the spiritual Levites will think the things of God to be foolishness.  They are blinded as that is God’s plan.

2Co 3:14 But their minds were blinded: for until this day remaineth the same vail untaken away in the reading of the old testament; which vail is done away in Christ.
2Co 3:15 But even unto this day, when Moses is read, the vail is upon their heart.
2Co 3:16 Nevertheless when it shall turn to the Lord, the vail shall be taken away.

The mission field of the disciples is the many called that are in Babylon. God’s Elect are not to bash Babylon as Babylon serves a very valuable purpose in God’s plan for the ages. Babylon is there doing exactly what God has it doing which is keeping the multitudes that come to Christ blinded from the truth. We are to speak against their doctrine however and stand up to the truth and they in fact are the mission field for God’s Elect. We are only sent to the lost house of Israel.

Mat 10:5 These twelve Jesus sent forth, and commanded them, saying, Go not into the way of the Gentiles, and into any city of the Samaritans enter ye not:

Mat 10:6 But go rather to the lost sheep of the house of Israel

Mat 10:7 And as ye go, preach, saying, The kingdom of heaven is at hand.

Mat 10:8 Heal the sick, cleanse the lepers, raise the dead, cast out devils: freely ye have received, freely give.

We are not sent to those God has blinded for now. We are not sent to the 99 who claim they need no repentance nor those that say they do not need a physician. Those in Babylon will think they already have repented and are serving God yet they are yet carnal and know not the true grace of the Lord at this time. God’s Elect will move on when it is clear that God has not prepared someone’s heart to receive the truth.

Mat 10:14 And whosoever shall not receive you, nor hear your words, when ye depart out of that house or city, shake off the dust of your feet.

God Keeps the Multitudes Blinded

Despite what we learn in Babylon, the plan of God is give light to very few and blind the rest of the world. Of course those that are blind will claim they see yet those words will be revealed for the lie they are at the appearing of the Lord in judgment.

Rom 11:7 What then? Israel hath not obtained that which he seeketh for; but the election hath obtained it, and the rest were blinded

All of us will be spiritual blind and YET CARNAL all the days we are in Babylon and participating in its activities and following its various doctrines all of which contradict the word of God. The whole world is deceived and only by the mercy of God are the few chosen dragged out of this deception and given the revelation of Jesus Christ.

Rev 12:9 And the great dragon was cast out, that old serpent, called the Devil, and Satan, which deceiveth the whole world: he was cast out into the earth, and his angels were cast out with him.

The deception is complete, it is total. There is not a single doctrine we learn in Babylon that is true. All the gold and silver has been tarnished and cankered by Babylon. The word has been corrupted and turned into wormwood that we all shall certainly drink before we ever know the truth. And this is all part of God’s plan to blind the world and only give sight to a few.

Isa 3:1 For, behold, the Lord, the LORD of hosts, doth take away from Jerusalem and from Judah the stay and the staff, the whole stay of bread, and the whole stay of water

Joh 9:39 And Jesus said, For judgment I am come into this world, that they which see not might see; and that they which see might be made blind.

The Lord uses signs and wonders both within a person’s life and external in the world to lead the carnal minded into thinking they are in the truth, have the Holy Spirit and are not part of the whore harlot church that is Babylon. There is nobody better than God in sending strong delusion and making it stick. The Scriptures tell us how God does this and it is through lying signs and wonders. These signs are how our beast receives a deadly wound to one of its heads which is healed as we fall for the lies and carnal doctrines of Babylon. The beast that all men are will continue to rule in our hearts, our day of judgment has not yet come.

Rev 13:3 And I saw one of his heads as it were wounded to death; and his deadly wound was healed: and all the world wondered after the beast.

The signs and wonders are actual signs and wonders, they are real. People actually see miracles happening, great deliverances and healings, outward changes in their lives, but the heart has not been circumcised. They are lying signs and wonders in that they are designed to mask the greater truth from those involved. As Jesus said, His words are used to keep the multitudes in spiritual darkness every learning but never able to come to knowledge of the truth. Babylon does not appreciate these words of Scripture.

Mat 13:11 He answered and said unto them, Because it is given unto you to know the mysteries of the kingdom of heaven, but to them it is not given.

Mat 13:12 For whosoever hath, to him shall be given, and he shall have more abundance: but whosoever hath not, from him shall be taken away even that he hath.

Mat 13:13 Therefore speak I to them in parables: because they seeing see not; and hearing they hear not, neither do they understand.

Mat 13:14 And in them is fulfilled the prophecy of Esaias, which saith, By hearing ye shall hear, and shall not understand; and seeing ye shall see, and shall not perceive:

Yet this mystery of how Christ can be both total darkness to one side and total light to the other is in the Scriptures for those that are given the understanding.

Exo 14:20 And it came between the camp of the Egyptians and the camp of Israel; and it was a cloud and darkness to them, but it gave light by night to these: so that the one came not near the other all the night.

Psa 139:12 Yea, the darkness hideth not from thee; but the night shineth as the day: the darkness and the light are both alike to thee.

Good Works and Preaching Will Deceive Us

The whole counsel of God makes clear that the performance of good works, doing good deeds and helping people in the flesh will not get us into the kingdom of God and are also used by God to keep us under strong delusion while we are in Babylon. Many will say to Christ on their day of judgment these words and the Lord will answer.

Mat 7:21 Not every one that saith unto me, Lord, Lord, shall enter into the kingdom of heaven; but he that doeth the will of my Father which is in heaven.

Mat 7:22 Many will say to me in that day, Lord, Lord, have we not prophesied in thy name? and in thy name have cast out devils? and in thy name done many wonderful works?

Mat 7:23 And then will I profess unto them, I never knew you: depart from me, ye that work iniquity.

The Book of JOB is in type and shadow the story of God’s elect. JOB like all of us when we are in Babylon will put great trust in our good works and use them as justification of our own righteousness. Yet our righteousness as JOB found out is really truly just filthy rags. It is not our UNRIGHTEOUSNESS that is filthy rags to God, it is the good stuff we do, it is our own righteousness.

Isa 64:6 But we are all as an unclean thing, and all our righteousnesses are as filthy rags; and we all do fade as a leaf; and our iniquities, like the wind, have taken us away.

Secretly it is all about ME, MYSELF and I or my church and my ministry during our days of being deceived by our good works which become lying signs and wonders. Just look at the boasting JOB held in his heart over all the good works he did before he knew the real God. The insidious sin of self righteousness is one we all will commit and it will be at the peak of our Babylonian service that we like JOB will be thinking such self righteous thoughts and boasting of our goodness and service to God.

Job 29:7 When I went out to the gate through the city, when I prepared my seat in the street!

Job 29:8 The young men saw me, and hid themselves: and the aged arose, and stood up.

Job 29:9 The princes refrained talking, and laid their hand on their mouth.

Job 29:10 The nobles held their peace, and their tongue cleaved to the roof of their mouth.

Job 29:11 When the ear heard me, then it blessed me; and when the eye saw me, it gave witness to me:

Job 29:12 Because I delivered the poor that cried, and the fatherless, and him that had none to help him.

Job 29:13 The blessing of him that was ready to perish came upon me: and I caused the widow’s heart to sing for joy.

Job 29:14 I put on righteousness, and it clothed me: my judgment was as a robe and a diadem.

Job 29:15 I was eyes to the blind, and feet was I to the lame.

Job 29:16 I was a father to the poor: and the cause which I knew not I searched out.

Job 29:17 And I brake the jaws of the wicked, and plucked the spoil out of his teeth.

Job 29:18 Then I said, I shall die in my nest, and I shall multiply my days as the sand.

Job 29:19 My root was spread out by the waters, and the dew lay all night upon my branch.

Job 29:20 My glory was fresh in me, and my bow was renewed in my hand.

Job 29:21 Unto me men gave ear, and waited, and kept silence at my counsel.

Job 29:22 After my words they spake not again; and my speech dropped upon them.

Our zealousness and participation in many good works are used to blind the multitudes that are in Babylon. They (which is all of us at one time) will think they lack nothing and are rich and increased in goods and need not any repentance. The good works are the proof text they are part of the Body of Christ, or so they think. God uses all of this to keep the multitudes, the many called blinded in Babylon.

2Th 2:8 And then shall that Wicked be revealed, whom the Lord shall consume with the spirit of his mouth, and shall destroy with the brightness of his coming:

2Th 2:9 Even him, whose coming is after the working of Satan with all power and signs and lying wonders,

2Th 2:10 And with all deceivableness of unrighteousness in them that perish; because they received not the love of the truth, that they might be saved.

2Th 2:11 And for this cause God shall send them strong delusion, that they should believe a lie:

Fire from heaven is the word of God being spoken in heaven, and that heaven in inside of us. Those in Babylon do have the word of God, which is the fire but it is perverted. Still Babylon is full of many ministers some with great oratory skills and excellent communicators. They will speak on the word of God eloquently but with error and will lead the people astray prophesying smooth deceits to them.

Rev 13:11 And I beheld another beast coming up out of the earth; and he had two horns like a lamb, and he spake as a dragon.

Rev 13:12 And he exerciseth all the power of the first beast before him, and causeth the earth and them which dwell therein to worship the first beast, whose deadly wound was healed.

Rev 13:13 And he doeth great wonders, so that he maketh fire come down from heaven on the earth in the sight of men,

Rev 13:14 And deceiveth them that dwell on the earth by the means of those miracles which he had power to do in the sight of the beast; saying to them that dwell on the earth, that they should make an image to the beast, which had the wound by a sword, and did live.

God used many a false preacher, gifted men with talents and great seeming miracles to prove it to preach the word to me and turn me over to the idols of my heart.  Great men of God preached many a fiery sermon that called fire down from my heavens but only served to take me deeper into the bottomless pit within.  We will be so convinced of this we will vigorously defend our false teachers and prophets just as I did in promoting and defending the false gospel and idols of Milton Green, Derick Prince and David Wilkerson to name a few that had be bound in Babylon long after I had left the building.

What is particularly a compelling lying sign and wonder is the outward changes we make in our lives and the very real deliverance from sins and various addictions. I have heard very compelling testimonies from people who have been delivered of drugs, overcame alcoholism, defeated pornography, turned from thief to good Samaritan.

Rev 16:13 And I saw three unclean spirits like frogs come out of the mouth of the dragon, and out of the mouth of the beast, and out of the mouth of the false prophet.

Rev 16:14 For they are the spirits of devils, working miracles, which go forth unto the kings of the earth and of the whole world, to gather them to the battle of that great day of God Almighty.

I don’t doubt any of such miracles as that is what they are, a miracle from God, yet the Lord uses such things to keep the multitudes of Babylon blinded held in chains of darkness awaiting their day of judgment.

Jud 1:6 And the angels which kept not their first estate, but left their own habitation, he hath reserved in everlasting chains under darkness unto the judgment of the great day.

God does indeed heal also. He sends all sickness and disease and He heals in many cases. Such healings are also used to help bind the multitudes in darkness. God is good and is working all things, including blinding the whole world for good per the counsel of His will. We are that beast which becomes that false prophet that is actually working against God all the while we think we are serving Him when we are in Babylon.

Rev 19:19 And I saw the beast, and the kings of the earth, and their armies, gathered together to make war against him that sat on the horse, and against his army.

Rev 19:20 And the beast was taken, and with him the false prophet that wrought miracles before him, with which he deceived them that had received the mark of the beast, and them that worshipped his image. These both were cast alive into a lake of fire burning with brimstone.

We must remember that it is appointed that man will live by every word that proceeds out of the mouth of God. So all of us, you and me will walk under strong delusion long before we come to know the true Lord. This coming out of Babylon, being dragged to Jesus Christ is a process and there are many stops along the way. This is what makes it that much harder for carnal babes to receive our true testimony when we do come out because it will have been obvious to all the folly of our earlier beliefs, all when we were certain we were in the truth but were actually in total spiritual darkness.

Here is the truth and words we will live by. We can’t know Christ until we first drink of strong drink and get drunk with wine. We can’t know Christ until we first fall backwards and be ensnared into the false doctrines of Babylon. This is true whether we go to a building or belong to a denominational church or not. The mother of all harlots lives within us.

Deu 29:6 Ye have not eaten bread, neither have ye drunk wine or strong drink: that ye might know that I am the LORD your God.

Isa 28:13 But the word of the LORD was unto them precept upon precept, precept upon precept; line upon line, line upon line; here a little, and there a little; that they might go, and fall backward, and be broken, and snared, and taken.

Being a good Samaritan is not about doing many good works in the flesh. Loving our neighbor is obeying God and He has commanded His Elect to go speak His word to a rebellious and stiff necked people who think they lack nothing and are not in need of repentance. The oil and wine we pour out in their wounds bring spiritual healing which are the greater works that Christ said we would do.

Luk 10:32 And likewise a Levite, when he was at the place, came and looked on him, and passed by on the other side.

Luk 10:33 But a certain Samaritan, as he journeyed, came where he was: and when he saw him, he had compassion on him,

Luk 10:34 And went to him, and bound up his wounds, pouring in oil and wine, and set him on his own beast, and brought him to an inn, and took care of him.

Joh 14:12 Verily, verily, I say unto you, He that believeth on me, the works that I do shall he do also; and greater works than these shall he do; because I go unto my Father.

Christ no longer calls His Elect servants. He calls them friends because He has made know to us the mysteries of the kingdom and what His plans and purposes our.

Joh 15:14 Ye are my friends, if ye do whatsoever I command you.

Joh 15:15 Henceforth I call you not servants; for the servant knoweth not what his lord doeth: but I have called you friends; for all things that I have heard of my Father I have made known unto you.

The Levites of today do not know what the Lord is doing. They are those who God has blinded and shut up in spiritual darkness. The light that is in them is actually darkness and how great is that darkness. It is not their fault or place as such understanding is only given to us if the Lord wills and has determined beforehand.

Deliverance Will “Finally” Come VIA Judgment

A day will come for each of us if we are God’s chosen when the rock that is Christ will fall upon us. I was given this mercy last year and it has completely destroyed the old me as the Potter has turned upside down and is reshaping the new man. It is not pleasant and it will not be popular with friends, family and foes. But if we are faithful, God will finish the good work He has begun in us. The true circumcision is made without hands and our works will have nothing to do with it.

When we begin to see that all that believed were lies. All of it. When we begin to realize that God had purposefully made us drunk with the wine of the harlot which mixed the things of God with the things of this world, then we will begin to awake to true righteousness. We will be shown what a wretched beast we truly are in this vessel of clay. It will be quite humbling and we will be ashamed of all the blasphemy we did against God, all the denying His doctrine and the persecution and false charges we had laid against His very Elect. But when that day comes, the walls and idols that have kept us safe and secure will come tumbling down as all of our doctrines are burned with the fire that is God’s word.

Jer 51:57 And I will make drunk her princes, and her wise men, her captains, and her rulers, and her mighty men: and they shall sleep a perpetual sleep, and not wake, saith the King, whose name is the LORD of hosts.
Jer 51:58 Thus saith the LORD of hosts; The broad walls of Babylon shall be utterly broken, and her high gates shall be burned with fire; and the people shall labour in vain, and the folk in the fire, and they shall be weary.

The people that make up the professing church will labor in vain but the Lord will build His church on His timeline.

Psa 127:1 Except the LORD build the house, they labour in vain that build it: except the LORD keep the city, the watchman waketh but in vain.

Our pride will hold us back from admitting our error. We will play along with the harlot long after we see the truth. We won’t want to endure the shame of the cross and the rebuke of our carnal friends. But like Jeremiah found out, the fire that the Lord has set inside of us will be too strong for our flesh. We will not be able to remain silent for long.

Jer 20:9 Then I said, I will not make mention of him, nor speak any more in his name. But his word was in mine heart as a burning fire shut up in my bones, and I was weary with forbearing, and I could not stay.

What a great calling and election this is. I pray all being stirred by the spirit of God will endure thru the trials of life and be found worthy to stand with Christ and rule and reign with Him in the age to come. That is the upward calling of God for which we strive to stay on the narrow path.  God is not at rest, our Father is working and the work He is doing will not be believed by us even if one declares it to us.  It awaits the day of our judgment when the lying signs and wonders will be exposed and the truth of God’s word will be made manifest to us.

Act 13:41 Behold, ye despisers, and wonder, and perish: for I work a work in your days, a work which ye shall in no wise believe, though a man declare it unto you.

The beast will be destroyed.  That is how salvation come and the first Adam is destroyed, making way for the second one, which is Christ in us, the hope of Glory.  Pray the rock falls and breaks you, that is the only way for Christ to come.

Mat 21:44 And whosoever shall fall on this stone shall be broken: but on whomsoever it shall fall, it will grind him to powder.
