COME OUT OF BABYLON NOW-DISCONNECT FROM HER
The Command given from Revelation 18:4 that says, “Come out of her my people”…is a warning that the Most High is telling His people to escape the judgement that is to come upon Babylon. Babylon is represented by a false religious system that has deceived the world. To come out of her means that there should be a separation-we must disconnect from it.
Many are calling for unity between church denominations and world religion, it’s called the Ecumenical Interfaith Movement that will lead to a one world religion, it is not designed to worship the Most High.
Babylon worship a god but not the true God. But the Most High wants his people to come out of Babylon now. Will you heed the warning?
So when I say we have to come out of Babylon, I am not suggesting you pack up your stuff and move to an unknown place, unless you’re led by the spirit to do so. What I mean to come out of Babylon is to disconnect yourselves from the ways of Babylon and it’s systems. We have already been told to be a separate and a holy people and has to be more to do with our assignment in this earth. We are supposed to be a people who desire the things that the Most High desires and hating the things that he hates. We were instructed to do this in the Old and the New Testament because of our function in the earth and we have to come out of Babylon now.
Lets take a look at the scriptures 2 Corinthians 6:14-17, the Bible says:
14 Do not be yoked together with unbelievers. For what do righteousness and wickedness have in common? Or what fellowship can light have with darkness? 15 What harmony is there between Christ and Belial[a]? Or what does a believer have in common with an unbeliever? 16 What agreement is there between the temple of God and idols? For we are the temple of the living God. As God has said:
“I will live with them
and walk among them,
and I will be their God,
and they will be my people.”[b]
“Come out from them
and be separate,
says the Lord.
Touch no unclean thing,
and I will receive you.”[c]
Many associate this passage with marriage, it can be that but it also talks about our relationship with the Most High. When we are joined to Him we cannot be joined to another. We are his people, the creator of all things that exist. The creator chose us as his own special people and that comes with a great responsibility. Imagine those people who have been chosen to serve the King, imagine how they are supposed to behave, they cannot behave like commoners.
I don’t think we really understand why there were certain restrictions placed on us. The Most High is telling his people to come out of a system that is not honoring him. When we hear the Most High saying, “Come out of them my people”, we should be asking who are the people he is talking about when he says my people? So let’s read from Isaiah 43:21, the Bible says, 21 the people I formed for myself that they may proclaim my praise. The Most High is saying, that he formed us to declare his praise. Leviticus 25:55 the Bible says, 55 for the Israelites belong to me as servants. They are my servants, whom I brought out of Egypt. I am the Lord your God.
We have been told that all Christians are Israelites but those who are saying this cannot be rightly dividing Joel 3:2, which says,
I will gather all nations
and bring them down to the Valley of Jehoshaphat.[a]
There I will put them on trial
for what they did to my inheritance, my people Israel,
because they scattered my people among the nations
and divided up my land.
So no matter how you want to slice it, the Most High is distinguishing his people that he brought them out of Egypt, those who he gave his name to, those who are scattered around the world among the nation and in the last days he says, he is bringing judgement against nations that scattered his people and divided his land. So did that happen to all who say they are Christians? Did their ancestors come out slavery in Egypt, are they called by his name and are they scattered among the nations? No.
An awakening is happening now and this is happening because a large percentage of our people don’t really know who they are. One of the greatest deception that occurred during Slave Trade was to separate the people from their identity and heritage in order to keep them enslaved. Unfortunately, religion was also used to make that happen. Deceptive theologians twisted the scripture to make the slaves believe that what happened to them happened because of the curse of Ham and the colour of their skin. The thing about deceivers is that they mix it with a little of truth, yes whatever happened to us is because of the curse but not because of the colour of our skin or Ham, it happened because we sinned against the Most High. The beauty of all this, is that he told us the curse will be the sign to help us identify ourselves in the last days.
So as I said, we are the remnant and we are still in the places of our captivity. I want to equate the enslavement to this Babylonian Beast System, we are being caught in a trap that we cannot free ourselves from unless you have help and the first thing that you need to know is that you need help. Religion made us comfortable and passive. It was like a drug we were given to ease the pain but there are still flare ups to remind us that something happen-the symptoms are clearly telling us that our people are still roaming around because the wound is still there.
Now that we know who who we are, it goes without saying, the first place to start is TRUE REPENTANCE. We have been placed in a situation to force us to acknowledge our sin against the Most High. We can match and protest until we are blue in the face and none of it will work because He won’t allow it, he is driving us to our knees. We need to Repent. Lets see how Daniel did it, he provided great example for us. Daniel 9:1-5, the Bible says;
In the first year of Darius son of Xerxes[a] (a Mede by descent), who was made ruler over the Babylonian[b] kingdom— 2 in the first year of his reign, I, Daniel, understood from the Scriptures, according to the word of the Lord given to Jeremiah the prophet, that the desolation of Jerusalem would last seventy years. 3 So I turned to the Lord God and pleaded with him in prayer and petition, in fasting, and in sackcloth and ashes.
4 I prayed to the Lord my God and confessed:
“Lord, the great and awesome God, who keeps his covenant of love with those who love him and keep his commandments, 5 we have sinned and done wrong. We have been wicked and have rebelled; we have turned away from your commands and laws.
This is what is happening in the awakening, we are realizing who we are, the signs are pointing to us that these things are talking about us.
Luke 21:21-22, the Bible says, 21 Then let those who are in Judea flee to the mountains, let those in the city get out, and let those in the country not enter the city. 22 For this is the time of punishment in fulfillment of all that has been written. Remember this prophecy was fulfilled in 70AD after the death of Messiah. This could not happen during Daniels time. Also note who he said would be in the land? Not the true people but the GENTILES.
Luke 13:35, 35 Look, your house is left to you desolate. I tell you, you will not see me again until you say, ‘Blessed is he who comes in the name of the Lord.’[a]” After we repent, we also need to turn from wickedness, anything that does not honor the Most High in essence-paganism. If you do your research, the religion that our people were forced to convert to, they all have pagan roots and that is a fact.
Lets Talk About Christmas
Jesus was probably not born in December: The Catholic Encyclopedia admits “there is no month in the year to which respectable authorities have not assigned Christ’s birth.” There are, however, a number of reasons to suggest that Jesus was probably not born in December.
Firstly, Luke 2:8 states that on the night of Jesus’ birth “there were in the same country shepherds abiding in the field, keeping watch over their flock by night.” Many scholars agree that this would have been unlikely in December, as shepherds would have been keeping their flock under cover during the cold winter months.
Secondly, it is written in the Bible that Joseph and Mary travelled to Bethlehem to register in a Roman census (Luke 2:1-4). However, such censuses were not taken in winter when temperatures often dropped below freezing and roads were in poor condition.
Since it appears unlikely that Jesus was born on December 25th, it raises the logical question of why Christmas is celebrated on this date. The answer points back to pagan celebrations which occurred around the winter solstice. Two celebrations in particular took place around December 25 – Saturnalia and the birthday of the sun god, Mithra. The Saturnalia festival began on December 17th and later expanded with festivities through to December 25th. It paid tribute to Saturn, the agricultural god of sowing and husbandry, and was associated with the renewal of light and the coming of the new year. The holiday was celebrated with a sacrifice in the Temple of Saturn, followed by a public banquet and private gift-giving, continual partying, and a carnival atmosphere.
Followers of the cult of Mithras (Mithra), which became popular among the military in the Roman Empire from the 1st to 4th centuries AD, are believed to have celebrated his birthday on December 25th, which was the most holy day of the year for many Romans. The worship of the sun god, Mithra (proto-Indo-Iranian ‘Mitra’), has its origin in Persia, from around the 6th century BC, and was later adapted into ancient Greece as ‘Mithras’. The most popular hypothesis is that Roman soldiers encountered this religion during military excursions to Persia.
While it is widely accepted that the Mithraic New Year and the birthday of Mithras on December 25 were celebrated as part of the Roman Natalis Invicti festival, some scholars have argued that the Natalis Invicti was a general festival of the sun, and was not specific to the Mysteries of Mithras. Nevertheless, it is clear that December 25 was an important day for the Romans and it revolved around a celebration of the sun.
When King Constantine converted to Christianity in the fourth century, he had quite a challenge ahead of him with regard to converting an empire full of pagans. It was therefore decided to celebrate the birth of Jesus on a date that was already sacred according to pagan traditions. So as a compromise with paganism and in an attempt to give the pagan holidays Christian significance, it was simply decided that the birthday of the Sun God would also be the birthday of the Son of God. The Catholic Encyclopedia quotes an early Christian as saying, “O, how wonderfully acted Providence that on that day on which that Sun was born…. Christ should be born.”
So again, they were already worshipping the sun god and because Messiah was the son of the Most High, it was easier for them to insert Christmas as the celebration of Messiah in that pagan day.
Another sacred cover is Easter. Did Messiah die? Yes. We know that he did. Was it called Easter? No. It was called Passover or Pasak. The word was conveniently changed to Easter, do you know why?
While Easter, as we know it today, was never a pagan festival , its roots and many of its traditions have associations with ancient pagan customs and beliefs. According to the New Unger’s Bible Dictionary: “The word Easter is of Saxon origin, Eastra, the goddess of spring, in whose honour sacrifices were offered about Passover time each year. By the eighth century Anglo–Saxons had adopted the name to designate the celebration of Christ’s resurrection.” However, even among those who maintain that Easter has pagan roots, there is some disagreement over which pagan tradition the festival emerged from. Here we will explore some of those perspectives.
One theory that has been put forward is that the Easter story of crucifixion and resurrection is symbolic of rebirth and renewal and retells the cycle of the seasons, the death and return of the sun. According to some scholars, such as Dr. Tony Nugent, teacher of Theology and Religious Studies at Seattle University, and Presbyterian minister, the Easter story comes from the Sumerian legend of Damuzi ( Tammuz) and his wife Inanna ( Ishtar), an epic myth called “The Descent of Inanna” found inscribed on cuneiform clay tablets dating back to 2100 BC. When Tammuz dies, Ishtar is grief–stricken and follows him to the underworld. In the underworld, she enters through seven gates, and her worldly attire is removed. “Naked and bowed low” she is judged, killed, and then hung on display. In her absence, the earth loses its fertility, crops cease to grow and animals stop reproducing. Unless something is done, all life on earth will end.
After Inanna has been missing for three days her assistant goes to other gods for help. Finally one of them Enki, creates two creatures who carry the plant of life and water of life down to the Underworld, sprinkling them on Inanna and Damuzi, resurrecting them, and giving them the power to return to the earth as the light of the sun for six months. After the six months are up, Tammuz returns to the underworld of the dead, remaining there for another six months, and Ishtar pursues him, prompting the water god to rescue them both. Thus were the cycles of winter death and spring life.
In 325 AD, Emperor Constantine convened a meeting of Christian leaders to resolve important disputes at the Council of Nicaea. Since the church believed that the resurrection took place on a Sunday, the Council determined that Easter should always fall on the first Sunday after the first full moon following the vernal equinox. Easter has since remained without a fixed date but proximate to the full moon, which coincided with the start of Passover.
What is Easter really about? The church wants us to believe that Easter is about the resurrection of Christ, while the state pushes the commercialization of the bunny and the eggs. Same with Christmas, the church wants us to believe it’s the birth of the Messiah, while the state pushes Santa Claus and gifts. The final blow to the Easter Holiday is the numbers of days Christ died and resurrected, the numbers do not add up. You cannot get three days and three nights from Friday noon to Sunday morning, unless of course you use some funny math. This is how the deceivers counted.
Even if we use the above logic, you cannot get 3 days and 3 nights, they are out rightly lying.
Idolatry can take many forms and the believe systems that were created by the Roman Catholic Church is designed to get us worship the pagan gods. The blue eye, blond hair ”messiah” that image from Cesare Borgia is not the Messiah. By the way, the Messiah was hang on a tree not a cross, so we have to get rid of the Roman holidays. This is a Great Deception. You’ve got to realize that you have been duped and stop playing the games. You have to decide to face what is in front of you as long as our people continue to participate in the lie, the beast system will keep us trapped. Ignorance is a trap that we can choose to get out from it. The Most High said, that his people were destroyed because they lacked knowledge. Don’t let that be you!
