The Mystery of Iniquity: Babylon

I've developed a spiritual hiccup. Whenever I try to
pray, I am overwhelmed with gloom. I have long since
lost my faith in this world, but, things are coming down
so rapidly, that this phrase: "Mystery of Iniquity" echoes
in harmony to my prayers.

Mat 7:23
And then will I profess unto them, I never knew you:
depart from me, ye that work iniquity.

I don't think many of us take sin seriously. While we're
under grace, there's one condition of our salvation that's
not negotiable, and that is faithfulness to the LORD.

We stare inwardly, sometimes with vast humility,
without the insight into determining the iniquity
of our worldly affection. This is not sleeping with
someone, male or female, or committing a crime
against another. Iniquity is a deal-breaker, and
refers in context to spiritual harlotry.

The great spiritual harlot is, of course, Babylon,
the symbol of rivalry for God's affection
. She is the seductress of our souls, and
if physical sin is forgiven by our sins being
washed clean by the blood of the lamb, we
are not eligible for redemption if we have
consistently committed spiritual fornication
with her.

But, who amongst any of us has truly escaped
her nets? We pray in unison, "Our Father,
who art in heaven..... lead us not into

Confess that in our heart of hearts, we don't
understand this to mean spiritual decadence.
Yet, that's what will ultimately separate us from
God if we don't shrug off the robes of the harlot
and stop chasing the carnal Christianity that
has destroyed the Apostles' work.

Only two or the seven churches in the Book of
Revelations has the chance of redemption. Most
scholars understand this to be a metaphor for
the totality of the church, with it's different
sects, and eras through the ages.

Most Christians would vehemently deny
adhering to the Babylonian Mystery
Religion, but, they are deceived, and need to
pray about it for enlightenment. Because
one of the easiest examples of how the
harlot has seduced the church is Christmas,
a holiday dedicated to the very satanic deity
of the ancient world.

Just because someone slapped the name of
Christ on this holiday, doesn't diminish the
total corruption. The spirit of the season
may appeal to the senses, but, it is dangerous
spiritual adultery.

If you married a wonderful man, after being
engaged to a louse, would the man who
married you want to be remembered by the
louse's name, or birthday, or with the
trappings of celebratino that is abhorrant,
eg, the pagan, oh soooo pagan Christmas
tree, yule logs, and mistletoe?

God is a jealous God. This was one of the
first mandates from God to man. He wrote
it in stone, and also emphasized his standard,
saying, "I will NOT give my glory to another."

Here's what I've been seeing with a heavy heart:
The Mystery of Iniquity, AND Babylon refer
to the church or Christianity itself..

There is precedence for this in Amos, where
God calls Israel and Judah whores for desiring
the Mystery Religion.

In Revelations 18, the glorious angel comes
down with a proclamation:

And he cried mightily with a strong voice, saying,
Babylon the great is fallen, is fallen,
and is become the habitation of devils,
and the hold of every foul spirit, and a cage,
of every unclean and hateful  bird

For all nations have drunk of the wine of the
wrath of her fornication, and the kings of the
earth have committed fornication with her,
and the merchants of the earth are waxed
rich through the abundance of her delicacies.

And I heard another voice from heaven saying,
Come  out of her, my people, that ye be not
partakers of her sins, and that ye receive not
of her plagues.

What do Christians believe the Angel is saying?
Why would he beckon them to leave Babylon
if Babylon was not the Church? 

Do they think it refers to Iraq?
Do they think it refers to Satanic Temples?
Why would Christians be there?

Do they think Babylon is a metaphor or
for the USA? What would the Angel expect
us to do, to leave a country, and for where else?

No, we've been led astray, my brother. We've been
under the supervision of a church system that was
sabotaged long ago, first by Rome, and then by
the Ecumenicals, and finally the world system.

Half the churches, if not more, spend their sermons
preaching social sedition, or change, ignoring the
heavenly realm altogether. The others have drifted
into prosperity teachings, and entitlement beliefs.
Oh, we love Christmas, Easter, and the trappings of
tradition, but, these seemingly good, at least innocuous
mainstays are straight from the mystery religion.

We're in trouble, and to save yourself, my brother,
you have to do like Elijah did, like Moses did.
We need to leave the church and go out into the
wilderness with or hairy coats and preach
holiness and salvation without the worldliness
of ceremonies and rituals which are most likely
abominations to God, and cherished by man.
I always marvel that the most Antichristian people
you can possible know always have the biggest and 
most ostentatious Christmas. That's because it is
a carnal holiday and dedication.
To put CHrist's name on it is abomination, even
the abomination of desolation. It is a symbol of
the mark of the beast, insofar as we are not being
true to the Gospel, but, have gone our own way,
preferring the world.

It's deadly dangerous, and it's time for us to
put away foolishness, and grow up spiritually.

This is childhood's end. We're facing the real
deal, and it's no joke. I wanna leave this place.
If y'all wanna leave, too, put away the trappings
of sin, and pray for enlightenment. 

DARE to oppose the conventions of this evil.
