I'm curious....What does coming out of Babylon mean to....YOU?
For me, coming out of babylon means many things.
Primarily it means to come out of confusion brought on by false doctrine, lies believed, and opinions...mine and others, in every area of life.
Rev 18:2 And he cried with a mighty voice, saying, “Baḇel the great is fallen, is fallen, and has become a dwelling place of demons, a haunt for every unclean spirit, and a haunt for every unclean and hated bird,
Rev 18:3 because all the nations have drunk of the wine of the wrath of her whoring, and the sovereigns of the earth have committed whoring with her, and the merchants of the earth have become rich through the power of her riotous living.”
Rev 18:4 And I heard another voice from the heaven saying, “Come out of her, my people, lest you share in her sins, and lest you receive of her plagues.
To do so, one must be led by the Ruach Ha Kodesh, the spirit of truth. The narrow path few are on leads away from babylon.
Babylon is a mix of truth and error that leads astray. Catholicism, is the whore (false bride) the sovereigns of the earth commune with. The Denominations are demon nations and they are her 'daughters', offspring birthed in the protestant reformation. The christian church as we see it today is pure Nicolaitanism. The clergy has conquered the laity exactly as done in catholic churches.When we believe false doctrines we are in babylon (confusion) and babylon is in us.
bâlal baw-lal'A primitive root; to overflow (specifically with oil); by implication to mix; also to fodder: - anoint, confound, X fade, mingle, mix (self), give provender, temper.
If the time comes for me to need to know if a physical babylon is to be fled I am sure He will let me know. For now, it is about coming out of religion, the world and its ways, and taking into captivity all thoughts that oppose the Truth or clutter up my brilyunt egocentric mind. (sic) We are truly our own worst enemy.
It encompasses every aspect of daily life. Coming out of babylon partly means rejection of TV, most music, books, websites, processed foods, politics, medicine and even people. It takes a long time to come out...many years.
He that hath an ear, let them hear what the Ruach Ha Kodesh is saying. Keep the focus on overcoming the sins that easily beset you while studying to show yourself approved to Elohim as a workmen that does not need to be ashamed, RIGHTLY DIVIDING THE WORDS OF TRUTH.
Rome, America, Christianity...its all a distraction from what really matters. Wisdom says come out of babylon, in part, by no longer babbling-on with topics and information that are not practical, too lofty/wordy and not germaine to our personal, daily walk. Pro 10:19 When words are many, Transgression is not absent, But he who restrains his lips is wise. To come out of babylon one must be aware of the adversarys schemes and activities. It is necessary for us to understand what demons are, what they do and how they do it. This knowledge comes from above and is only valid/effective when learned directly from the Ruach. Eph 6:12 Because we do not wrestle against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against authorities, against the world-rulers of the darkness of this age, against spiritual matters of wickedness in the heavenlies.
Heb 5:9 And having been perfected, He became the Causer of everlasting deliverance to all those obeying Him
Heb 5:10 having been designated by Elohim a High Priest “according to the order of Malkitseḏeq,”
Heb 5:11 concerning whom we have much to say, and hard to explain, since you have become dull of hearing.
Heb 5:12 For indeed, although by this time you ought to be teachers, you need someone to teach you again the first elements of the Words of Elohim. And you have become such as need milk and not solid food.
Heb 5:13 For everyone partaking of milk is inexperienced in the word of righteousness, for he is a babe.
Heb 5:14 But solid food is for the mature whose senses have been trained by practice to discern both good and evil.
Ask, pray, fast, for the anointing mentioned in the following scripture...DO NOT ASSUME YOU ALREADY HAVE IT.
1Jn 2:25 And this is the promise that He has promised us: everlasting life.
1Jn 2:26 I have written this to you concerning those who lead you astray.
1Jn 2:27 But the anointing which you have received from Him stays in you, and you have no need that anyone should teach you. But as the same anointing does teach you concerning all, and is true, and is no falsehood, and even as it has taught you, you stay in Him.
1Jn 2:28 And now, little children, stay in Him, so that when He appears, we might have boldness and not be ashamed before Him at His coming.
May we never think too highly of ourselves. Not one shred of truth comes from my deaf ears, blind eyes, wicked heart, untameable tongue or carnal mind (brain).
Every fiber of our being needs to be locked on to the desire for YHVH Elohim to work out His will in our lives.
We must stay repentant and humble as we embrace with obediance His Torah along with faith in Yahshua our precious messiah.
Time is short, the tribulation will begin soon.
No spots, no wrinkles. Return to your first love.
