Wednesday: “Babylon the Great” — 7 Comments

  1. Every power great or small stands against God will be brought down.

    On that day seven women will take hold of one man and say, “We will eat our own bread and provide our own clothes. Just let us be called by your name. Take away our disgrace!”
    seven represents completeness
    Women represent the church
    One man - representing the groom
    Christ is the head of the church but the women illustrated here tells the man:
    we can provide for our own food to eat - rejecting the communion offered by God
    We will provide our own Clothes - rejecting the righteousness of Christ
    BUT
    We want to be identified as Christians.
    Take away our disgrace in our own merits.

    My friend how did you get in here without a wedding garment.

    Wedding garment provided by Christ alone is the only qualifier which allows us to enter into heaven.

    Amen!(49)
    • Newbegin, I saw 34 Amens' to your comments. Must have been pretty powerful. I guess I am in the dark. Please enlighten me. I have read Revelations 12 and 13,and some of the applications to metaphors and symbols, are not outstandingly clear.

      Amen!(3)
    • Newbegin its true people these days have chosen not to consider Christ as the head of the family that has be adored and cherished but rather they are just taking Church as the social club for the Christians. Church these days is like praying ground were the footballers have to show off their skill for them to earn a better living at the end of the month. but proudly be to those of us just the revelation 1 verses 3 says "Blessed is the one who reads aloud the words of this prophecy, and blessed are those who hear it and take to heart what is written in it, because the time is near". all these things that are happening has to take us to the glory of GOD. Amen!!!

      Amen!(0)
  2. It is good to review these symbolic messages! They are safe and sound to those who are aware! These are revelations from a perspective that we would never be able to grasp, if it wasn't for the Bible. God does care in disclosing past, present and future for people! This should give us a sense of security about His love. And it is in this love that we should invest! Because the times that we are living are already messed up. Madness is considered right, and truth is something rare! May we get a hold of this light and pray for the Holy Spirit to hit us strong, so we may be efficient instruments in God's hands to call others! May we all be purified and changed to what God desires for us to reflect! We need a new and fresh start!

    Amen!(12)
  3. It is amazing to me how in Chapter 14 none of the three angels there cry out for God's people to come out of Babylon. It is not until four chapters later that a "Fourth Angel," repeats that "Babylon has fallen." But then John hears "another voice," from heaven (apparently not from that fourth angel,) but from heaven Revelation 18:4, for God's people to come out of her. I am wondering if God himself from heaven cries out one last time for one last chance for people to leave "False Worship," before he finally gives the beastT and the harlot to "the flames" before he rescues his people?

    Amen!(5)
  4. Some call it a \"new world order\" or a \"world church\". One thing is for sure, that the time is coming soon when we will be forced by government to follow the beast or pay the consequences. But have no fear. God won\'t keep us from the tribulations but He will see us through them. \"Babylon the Great\" will fall.

    Amen!(1)
  5. There are more ways of getting us to comply than by force. Persuasion by popular opinion and entertainment, advertisement, TV media, Internet social networking; all of these are major contributors to the development of our mindsets today. We sometimes promoted the idea of "forced compliance", overlooking the gentler more subtle ways that compliance can be achieved. It is a strategy that is as old as human existence. You get people to concentrate on something that gets their attention and then attack them gently so they don't even know it.

    We need to pray that we do not fall victim to the gentle attack.

    Amen!(3)
