July 11

As a watchman for the Lord, if I see the danger in the land…a sword in our midst that has come to steal, kill, and destroy…and I do not blow the trumpet and sound the alarm to warn the people, then I will be held accountable by the Lord for the blood of any that perish because of my failure to warn them of the danger.  With that in mind, following are several articles and video clips that you would do well to read/listen to:

Revelation 17:1-18

One of the seven priest-angels who had the seven bowls came and said to me, “Come, I will show you the punishment of the great prostitute, who sits on many watersWith her the kings of the Earth committed spiritual adultery and the inhabitants of the Earth were intoxicated with the wine of her adulteries, enamored by her ennoblement of the lust of the flesh, the lust of the eyes, and the pride of life over and above the rightful place of the Creator.”

3Then the angel carried me away in the Spirit into a desert.  There I saw a woman sitting on a scarlet beast that was covered with blasphemous names and had seven heads and ten horns…the symbolic representation of the very person of the Antichrist himself, as well as the embodiment of all antichrists throughout all ages and in all places who were his forerunners!  She was sitting on the Beast…a symbolic representation of how she has ridden upon empires, kings, powers…the sum total of this world’s political sovereignty and dominion…throughout all ages and in all places, inspiring, leading and controlling them with the lure of her spiritual fornication.  The Woman was dressed in purple and scarlet, and was glittering with gold, precious stones and pearls befitting the gaudiness and pomp of her Earthly splendor.  She held a golden cup in her hand, filled with abominable things and the filth of her adulteries…the world’s many debauching systems of false faith and false worship, idol worship and carnal self-exaltation, over and against the revelations and institutes of Yahweh.  This title was written on her forehead:

MYSTERY 
BABYLON THE GREAT 
THE MOTHER OF PROSTITUTES 
AND OF THE ABOMINATIONS OF THE EARTH.

She had her origin after the Flood under that great rebel, Nimrod, from his first and capitol city Bab-el (Babylon), who began that first great work of conscious and deliberate rebellion against God which brought the confusion of tongues, and thereby inaugurated the original of, and became the parent of, all the subsequent harlotries and abominations of mankind down through the ages.  She is thus the great embodiment, source, and representative of all idolatry, false worship, and perversion of the Word and institutes of God…the symbolic mother representing the universal body of the faithless throughout all ages and in all places…those who worship as God what is not God, giving their hearts to idols, and who institute systems, doctrines, rites and administrations to take the place of what God has revealed and appointed.  Whatever changes or additions evolved as the streams of humanity ran on amid the centuries, it was still old Babylon, which ever abides, giving birth to her harlot daughters down through the ages, ever reproducing the likeness of the original mother, and thus known to the judgment angels as “Babylon the Great, THE MOTHER OF PROSTITUTES AND OF THE ABOMINATIONS OF THE EARTH.”  She is the bride of Satan…the Devil’s antagonist to the Woman clothed with the sun who is the precious bride symbolically representing the visible Church of the Living God on Earth, who gives birth to her royal children belonging to God.

6I saw that the Woman was drunk with the blood of the saints, the blood of those who bore testimony to Jesus, whom she has persecuted and killed down through the ages because of their testimony and witness against her spiritual harlotry and the filth of her adulteries.  When I saw her, I was greatly astonished, and gazed upon her with perplexed horror, wondering whether this woman could be the same one whom I had previously seen clothed with the sun…now, somehow, horribly transformed.  Then the angel said to me: “Why are you astonished?  I will explain to you the mystery of the Woman and of the Beast she rides, which has the seven heads and ten horns.  The Beast, which you saw, once was living, now is not… having died of a fatal wound…and will come up out of the Abyss to live on the Earth once again, and then go to his destruction.  The inhabitants of the Earth whose names have not been written in the Lamb’s Book of Life from the creation of the world will be astonished when they see the Beast, because he once was living, now is not, and yet will come to live again upon the Earth.

9This calls for a mind with wisdom.  The seven heads are seven regal hills on which the Woman sits…the seven great mountains of imperial world-power that will have reigned throughout the course of history, and representative of the sum total of this world’s political sovereignty and dominion throughout all ages and in all places.  They are also the seven great and very powerful kings of these world-powers, having a dominant influence over the world during the period of their reign.  Five have already fallen…Greece, Persia, Babylon, Assyria, and Egypt…one is at the present time…Rome…the other has not yet come; but when he does come, he must remain for a little while.  They were each and all the lovers, supporters, and defenders of organized falsehood in religion, the patrons of idolatry, the foster friends of all manner of spiritual harlotry.  The Beast who once was living, and now is not, is an eighth king.  He belongs to the seven and is going to his destruction.

12The ten horns you saw are ten kings who have not yet received a kingdom, but who for one hour will receive authority as kings along with the Beast.  They have one purpose, and will give their power and authority to the Beast.  They will make war against the Lamb, but the Lamb will overcome them because He is Lord of lords and King of kings… and with Him will be His called, chosen and faithful followers.”

15Then the angel said to me, “The waters you saw, where the prostitute sits, are peoples, multitudes, nations and languages who make up the entire body of organized alienation from God throughout all ages and in all places.  The Beast and the ten horns you saw who, at first, carried the Woman down through the ages with affection, will now hate the prostitute.  They will bring her to ruin and leave her naked; they will eat her flesh and burn her with fire.  Thus it is that in their self-ordination as absolute sovereign authority over all the world, they will set up an entirely new and universal religion upon the Earth, making war on all existing religions and systems.  They will make the very Earth, and all its inhabitants, worship the Beast, whose fatal wound had been healed, as the one only God.  They will set up an image in honor of the Beast who was fatally wounded by the sword and yet lived!  And the image of the Beast will be given Satanic power to speak and to cause all who refuse to worship the image to be killed.  They will also force everyone, small and great, rich and poor, free and slave, to receive a mark on his right hand or on his forehead as a visible badge to show their allegiance to their infernal lord, so that no one can buy or sell unless he has the mark.38  For God has put it into their hearts to accomplish His purpose by agreeing to give the Beast their power to rule, until God’s words are fulfilled.  The Woman you saw as the symbolic embodiment of all systems of carnal alienation from God down through the ages…the mother of prostitutes and of the abominations of the Earth…now in her final consummation manifests herself in the ultimate, literal, Earthly city.  Just as the ultimate Heavenly City will come down out of Heaven from God, this city embodying all the completed temporal results and harlotries of the world’s sensual wisdom, and the ultimate bloom of all human apostasy, will rise up upon the Earth…and is now become the great, rich and powerful, mighty City whose world-wide temporal, materialistic, influence gives it a universal power that effectively supersedes and rules over the kings of the Earth!  In her presumptuous self-sufficiency, conceit, and arrogance, she presumes to bear rule over all the kings of the Earth by the power of her wealth, to dictate their policies, to fashion their laws, and to be their protector and redeemer.  She holds sway over their governments by the lure of her fornication…her dignification and deification of the lust of the flesh, the lust of the eyes, and the pride of life…in the magnetic grip of her prodigious commerce, and her lucrative financial markets, and her greed-laden money-kings; and these know no God but gold, and no law but self-interest and worldly gain, accumulation and unbounded wealth.” 

Friends, brothers and sisters…

There is one absolutely necessary preparation for every living soul on the face of this Earth, for the soon coming and imminent return of Jesus Christ…the one preparation that will irrevocably determine in which neighborhood you will spend all eternity, whether in Heaven or in Hell.  You must be a born-again child of God.  I tell you the truth, unless you are born again, you cannot be in God’s Kingdom.  I tell you the truth, no one can ever enter the Kingdom of God unless you are born of water and the Spirit.  Flesh gives birth to flesh, but the Spirit gives birth to spirit.  You should not be surprised at My saying you must be born again. [Jesus…John 3:3-7]

If you have never been born again,
or you are not sure whether you have been born again,
or you have been living your life as a lukewarm Christian and would now like to recommit your life and enter into a deep and intimate relationship with Christ Jesus in preparation for the soon coming marriage supper of the Lamb…
then I counsel you to get alone with God, read the solemn marriage vows you must make to become the bride of Christ and thereby be born-again, [https://preservechristianfamily.org/2019/01/21/bride-of-christ/], and with sincerity of heart from within the depths of your being, acknowledge before God, “I DO.”

He walks with me and He talks with me:
