Category Archives: Babylon
We are endeavouring to consider the dangers that the church has faced through its centuries so that we can take heed lest we fall. Babylon is a name in prophecy of a harlot – Babylon the great, the mother of harlots. The policy of Babylon was to join truth and error together in a relationship that was unlawful, making the church a harlot. Worldliness is that which the church must come away from. This is what we want to seek to understand and in understanding the scriptures, we need to look at the past, because history repeats itself.
There are two classes of people in the world, a majority and a minority. We will look at the majority. The majority is likened to a city. There are more people that live in the city than the country so the city incorporates the majority. Mexico City has 21 million living in one city which is more than the population of Australia.
Revelation 16:19 And the great city was divided into three parts, and the cities of the nations fell: and great Babylon came in remembrance before God, to give unto her the cup of the wine of the fierceness of his wrath.
Here is a majority in three parts. What are the three parts that incorporate the majority of the world?
Revelation 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.
Here we have three divisions. The city was divided into three divisions and here is the dragon which is what? Paganism. The beast is Catholicism and the last one is apostate Protestantism, the false prophet. False Protestants. In these three divisions paganism is idolatry. It is worshipping something else other than the living God. In paganism is collected all the religions of the world bar two.
The Majority and the Minority
Catholicism is a mixture between pagan worship and Christianity. It is a blending of the two. The false prophet is the Christian faith that has gone into apostasy. These three segments incorporate the whole world. Everyone comes into one of these segments. The world is divided. There are Muslims against Christians and vice versa. The minority is united, not divided. They have one faith, one Lord and one baptism. Read the rest of this entry
The saving of souls is to be our occupation and how to become saved ourselves comes by understanding what the Word says. The purpose of humanity is to do the will of the Father, to know by experience the things that we are meant to do in these very last days. Two weeks ago I knocked on a door and did some mechanical work for a Pastor. I asked him what he thought about the 1888 message. He replied ‘I don’t care about the past, all I care about is what happens tomorrow!’ and with these words he closed the conversation and we parted. I was bewildered by his response because the past in Bible history is the key that munlocks what we are to do today and tomorrow. Read the rest of this entry
