Fallen is Babylon

Revelations 14:8
A second angel followed and said, “Fallen! Fallen is Babylon the Great, which made all the nations drink the maddening wine of her adulteries.”
Fallen is Babylon

Through the ages we have seen both a real church of God and pseudo church who worshiped God outwardly in form and in name, but the true Spirit and nature of God was not found in them. In the world they represented the church and truth of God and yet through inquisitions and martyrdom they persecuted and killed those who possessed the reality of Christ and refused to be conformed to her ways and doctrines. The great Babylon has been the source of tremendous influence in the world and yet she has been in bed with the world in so many of her ways and dealings. Ironically enough it has often been the real that has been hidden in the midst of this great harlot Babylon. Babylon is the epitome of man’s religion and devices. Her leaders have taken the holy vessel of God’s true temple and defiled them in their drunkenness and debauchery. The world sees her hypocrisy, but even they don’t see the depth of her sin and defilement of Spirit. Even so, in her midst, true saints of God and the Bride has been hidden, but their effectiveness and light has often been hidden and obscured by the corruption and watered down religion of that which surrounds them. This results from a system of men that use God for their own gain and power. They have built great edifices and monuments more to their own glory than to Father God. As they come into the fullness of their corruption they will try to bring their masses into the mindset of this world system. They will use condemnation and coercion to do what would not bear witness with the true Spirit of Christ. What she does not yet know is that her time is short and her days are numbered. Her spirit is that same one as the religious leaders that crucified our Lord.
We hear this word coming out of God’s word repeatedly as expressed in Revelations 18:4 to the saints of God to come out of her, because here in Revelations 18 it tells us of her demise and ultimate destruction. “After this I saw another angel coming down from heaven. He had great authority, and the earth was illuminated by his splendor. 2With a mighty voice he shouted: “Fallen! Fallen is Babylon the Great! She has become a home for demons and a haunt for every evil spirit, a haunt for every unclean and detestable bird. 3For all the nations have drunk the maddening wine of her adulteries. The kings of the earth committed adultery with her, and the merchants of the earth grew rich from her excessive luxuries.” 4Then I heard another voice from heaven say:
“Come out of her, my people, so that you will not share in her sins, so that you will not receive any of her plagues; 5for her sins are piled up to heaven, and God has remembered her crimes. 6Give back to her as she has given; pay her back double for what she has done. Mix her a double portion from her own cup. 7Give her as much torture and grief as the glory and luxury she gave herself. In her heart she boasts, ‘I sit as queen; I am not a widow, and I will never mourn.’ 8Therefore in one day her plagues will overtake her:
death, mourning and famine. She will be consumed by fire, for mighty is the Lord God who judges her.”
God is calling us saints of God to true religion and undefiled. He is calling us out of man’s version of religion and into the truth of Spirit and His life. In that place we find no longer just outward expressions, words and acts of religion, God is bringing us into that place of intimacy and relationship where we can intimately know Him, not just in head knowledge, but in Spirit and in Truth. It is a place where we can finally experience the reality of His presence and fellowship in our personal lives. Our relationship is no longer dependent upon what we do for God or how good we can be. We come into the place of knowing Christ who is the finished work of our salvation and who is able to complete the good work He has began in you and I.
This is the hour to leave the old wineskin of dead religion and move into the reality of His true Church, which is alive and pregnant with the Spirit of God. God loves His own and so He is calling His own unto Himself. He is calling us out of dead religion, old paradigms and ways of thinking and out of our traditions. Jesus told the religious leaders in Mark 7:13, “Thus you nullify the word of God by your tradition that you have handed down. And you do many things like that.”
Press in for yourself and find the reality of Christ for your life. He is bringing you into a place of freedom. Your religion may condemn you, but then little does it know it stands condemned and under the judgement of God. He is calling you to be part of the true Church that He is raising up to the glory and praise of His name. A church that will be mighty and will go forth doing exploits, signs and wonders. He is setting you free and He is calling you out!

Salvation’s Yearning

June 6, 2013

Luke 19:10
“For the Son of Man has come to seek and to save that which was lost.”

Salvation’s Yearning

God’s heart is for your soul. His passion is for your salvation. His cry is for man to come to repentance and to be reconciled back to Him. His love is so fervent for us and yet restrained by His own hand to not violate our will and choice. He hates sin, but so loves the sinner that has been taken captive by sin’s perversion of truth and the lies that bind men’s hearts.
God went over the top when He sent His own Son, Jesus Christ to us. “For one will hardly die for a righteous man; though perhaps for the good man someone would dare even to die. 8But God demonstrates His own love toward us, in that while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us. 9Much more then, having now been justified by His blood, we shall be saved from the wrath of God through Him. 10For if while we were enemies we were reconciled to God through the death of His Son, much more, having been reconciled, we shall be saved by His life. 11And not only this, but we also exult in God through our Lord Jesus Christ, through whom we have now received the reconciliation. (Romans 5:7-11)”
God’s justice and wrath demands at some point He has to flush and purge all of the sewage that sin and death have brought into His creation, but before He does, His heart is to save everyone out of that cesspool that will respond to Him. He gave His own Son as the standard and prototype of love and salvation and then He stamped that image and prototype of His Son upon all of us who would believe, with His Holy Spirit, so that we could then become the expression and continuance of what He completed through His Son. Proclamation was made in Jesus Christ. Dispensation of that proclamation comes through us; his believers and disciples. We are the embodiment of His divine expression and love.
We are the embodiment of what Christ died for, to liberate creation from sin and the devil.
We are not here to simply fill a building and warm a pew once of twice a week. We are here to manifest Him who lives within us, who has redeemed us by His very own blood and life, so that LIFE could now dwell within us in power and authority.
Even we have become watered down, diluted and compromised by the world we live in. We have all allowed ourselves to become less than what we were redeemed to be.
“God arise in us your people and set us completely free from the love of sin we still harbor in our hearts and lives. Cause us to hate what You hate and love what You love. Purify us as Your bride, without spot or wrinkle. Help us that we would not just do church, be truly be the church, the divine expression of You in the earth. That is our destiny and calling. Holy Spirit help us, empower us to embrace it and carry it forth with dedication and commitment. Father God, be glorified through us, Your people. Exalt the name of Your Son through us as we live lives empowered by You to exemplify Your nature and Your love. Raise us up as Your Sons to set creation free! Amen”
