Just One More, thanks

 

  1. Babylon the MOTHER of Harlots

 

And he carried me away in the Spirit into a wilderness: and I saw a woman, sitting upon a scarlet‑colored beast, full of names of blasphemy, having seven heads and ten horns.... and upon her forehead a name written, Mystery, Babylon the Great, the Mother of the Harlots and of the Abominations of the Earth. (Rev. 17:3,6)

 

As a religious system, Babylon’s scope is worldwide, yet she is linked to and has her headquarters at one specific “great city”. Which city is this?

 

Here is the mind that hath wisdom. The seven heads are seven mountains, on which the woman sitteth: (Rev. 17:9)

 

What is the only great city on the earth that is known as the city of seven hills? Who is this woman? Babylon, the Mother of Harlots and Abominations of the Earth, is none other than the Roman Catholic Church!

 

If you do not believe that this verse applies to the Roman Catholic Church, read Foxe's Book of Martyrs. The Roman Catholic Church killed more Christians during the Protestant Reformation than the Roman Empire did during the early days of the church.

 

... And ye have made void the word of God because of your tradition. (Matt. 15:6)

 

How do the teachings and practices of Roman Catholicism compare with the word of God, the Bible?

 

The bishop therefore must be without reproach, the husband of one wife ... (I Tim. 3:2)

 

     And call no man your father on the earth: for one is your Father, even he who is in heaven. (Matt. 23:9)

 

       For there is one God, one mediator also between God and man, himself man, Jesus Christ, (1 Tim. 2:5)

 

And he answered and said, fallen, fallen is Babylon; and all the graven images of her gods are broken unto the ground. (Isa. 21:9)

 

  1. The Daughters of Babylon the Mother

 

and upon her forehead a name written, Mystery, Babylon the Great, the Mother of the Harlots and of the Abominations of the Earth. (Rev. 17:5)

 

Behold, everyone that useth proverbs shall use this proverb against thee, saying, As is the mother, so is her daughter. (Ezek. 16:44)

 

... And ye have made void the word of God because of your tradition. (Matt. 15:6)

 

Scofield’s Study Bible concisely points out that the practice of the Nicolaitans, which the Lord condemns, is the clergy-laity system. This is the clergy‑laity system and its true purpose is to kill the functioning of the members of the body.

In 2008, a survey revealed that 47% of the clergy in Christianity reported having a problem with pornography. Another survey reported that only 25% of them believed that the Bible was the literal inspired word of God.

 

But in giving you this charge, I praise you not, that ye come together not for the better but for the worse. For first of all, when ye come together in the church, I hear that divisions exist among you ... (I Cor. 11:17‑18)

 

Remember the principles of the tower of Babel: scattering, division, confusion, and self‑ambition. In today's Babylon it is the same: Scattering: you meet at your "place of worship" and I'll meet at mine; Division: if your "place" is not the same as my "place," then we cannot have true oneness with each other; Confusion: your "place" has different doctrines and practices than mine, we each do not understand the other's doctrines and practices, self‑ambition: no different from the world, the desire to make a name for oneself by doing great works.

 

Neither for these only do I pray, but for them also that believe on me through their word; that they may all be one; even as thou, Father, art in me, and I in thee, that they also may be in me: that the world may believe that thou didst send me. And the glory which thou hast given me I have given them; that they may be one, even as we are one; I in them, and thou in me, that they may be perfected into one; that the world may know that thou didst send me, and lovedst them, even as thou lovedst me. (John 17:20‑23)

 

The above verses prove that Christians have allowed themselves to become divided since, if they were not divided, the world would know that God sent Christ, and this is not the case.

 

... the disciples were called Christians first in Antioch. (Acts 11:26)

 

For a believer to take a name other than the name of Christ is spiritual fornication. To call yourself a certain kind of Christian is a serious sin and a shame to the Lord.

 

 

‘Church’ is arguably the most abused and misunderstood word in the English language. It is certainly NOT a funny-looking building, nor even an assembly of people meeting in unison. ‘The church, which is His Body’. ‘Attend the church of your choice’ is a Satanically-motivated invitation to commit spiritual fornication, and is totally in opposition to holding the one accord to keep the oneness of the Spirit.

God is not a God of confusion. Be honest‑ does Christianity express Christ or does it express confusion? Does a non‑Christian see the expres­sion of the living Christ or do they see a religious system as confusing as it is divided? Satan is not stupid, he knows the rules of warfare- ‘Divide in order to conquer”. There is a material system to trap unbelievers and there is a religious system to trap believers‑ both are in Satan's World System and under his control. Babylon, the mother of Harlots, is the Roman Catholic Church and her daughters are the divisions (both denominational and “non-denominational”) of Protestantism.

Interesting plea.

Upon deaf ears does most of these missives fall. Blind eyes see no truth. Harden hearts feel not the pain you've expressed.

 

This kind of expression of truth cuts to deeply to be truly understood for what it is.  Many views but not comments speaks to the difficulty many would have it saying simply... amen.
