And [when] thou [art] spoiled, what wilt thou do? Though thou clothest thyself with crimson, though thou deckest thee with ornaments of gold, though thou rentest thy face with painting, in vain shalt thou make thyself fair; [thy] lovers will despise thee, they will seek thy life.For I have heard a voice as of a woman in travail, [and] the anguish as of her that bringeth forth her first child, the voice of the daughter of Zion, [that] bewaileth herself, [that] spreadeth her hands, [saying], Woe [is] me now! for my soul is wearied because of murderers.Jer 4:30-31
Russia and communism
Well what about in places like Russia, or the previous "Soviet Union" and other"communist lands?Did Babylon. or does she, have a hold in these lands? Does she reign over these? Here are some interesting facts of history... It should be noted, that communism often carries with it the fanaticism of religion,without the worship of a "God".It is without deception, in that the worship of or allegience to men is fully admitted.This also is very effective in preparing men for the "New World Order'; for fully exposed, this is exactly what the NWO will prove to be.
Karl Marx, the founder of communism was Jewish.There is a long list of others at...
http://www.jewwatch.com/ At this website you will find extensive and well documented research on this subject. VERY INFORMATIVE WEBSITE!
"The bolshevist revolution in Russia was the work of Jewish brains, of Jewish dissatisfaction, of Jewish planning, whose goal is to create a new order in the world. What was performed in so excellent a way in Russia, thanks to Jewish brains, and because of Jewish dissatisfaction and by Jewish planning, shall also, through the same Jewish mental and physical forces, become a reality all over the world." THE AMERICAN HEBREW SEPTEMBER 10, 1920.Wow!
These Christians are but a few of the 100,000,000 Christian innocents who were exterminated by All Anti-Christian Jewish Red Commissars in Russia under the orders of Trotsky, the Jewish Commissar of Commissars. Yet Spielberg will never Direct a "Schindler's List" Movie for them or their genocide. Why is that? Because Jews did it.
My relatives and my fellow Christians were murdered in the USSR under Jewish Marxism between 1917-1945, and many of the Marxists came to Russia from New York to do this to Christians in 1917 after Jacob Schiff, the Jewish anti-Christian maniac banker who owned The Guaranty National Trust, the largest bank in the United States, financed Lenin and Trotsky $35 million for the Red Revolution and the mass killing of these Christian souls. We must never forget this.
It is also very interesting to note that the formula Marx's partner Engels wrote of ,to weaken a society and nation,and make to it ripe for the acceptance of communism, was to corrupt it through and through with immorality , free love,etc.Which is what is going on now in a very big way in Hollywood. (The Jews own Hollywood- Marlon Brando)Leading the whole country (and countries) on a path to hell! Proverbs 7:27 Not to mention the disgusting Sodomites,(homos) that they televise and air as something cute and normal on todays sitcoms,etc. How disgusting! Never has the world reached as low a state as it has today! Truly,"the inhabitants of the earth have been made drunk(morally) with the wine of her fornication."Revelation17:2.She has not been true to her God YHVH, but instead is as an harlot,full of the filth of her fornication! Wake up world, and don't let yourself be taken!
Communism is the creation of the Illuminati, which is the top rung of Freemasonry. It is satanic. Its emblem, the five-pointed star, is Satanic. The Communist Manifesto calls for the destruction of the family, culture, science and religion (atheism), the confiscation of property and inheritance, control of communication and dictatorship. It also called for private central banks and income tax.
Henry Makow, PhD
So far we have identified a power so vast and so great, eminating from a comparitively very small group of people,so as to connect it's identity to that of "The mystery Harlot" of Revelation.Does this "Mother" implicate all Jews? Of course not. All the bible writers were Jewish. Abraham, the father of the Jewish race was a righteous man and a speacial friend of God.Rermember Rabbi Seigels comments earlier? There are many others.Here is a letter from one."I would like to thank you in the name of many in the Jewish community here in Melbourne for opening our eyes to how all of us Jews have been manipulated by the Zionists. Unfortunately, the Zionist are controlling all our synagogues and Jewish organization and institutions, even though most of us are not Zionists. The Zionists are endangering our lives. We are now being flooded with Jewish Israeli refugees who are escaping from Israel, not a single one of them is a Zionist, they have informed us that Zionism is dead in Israel. They also said that most embassies in Israel are now over flowing with Israelis who are seeking to immigrate to other countries. In recent years, more Israelis are escaping from sinking Israel compared with Jews who are gullible enough to immigrate to Israel. "rense.com Reminds me of the pronouncements against Babylon recorded at Jeremiah 51:14."The LORD (YHVH) of hosts has sworn by himself, saying, Surely I will fill thee with men, as with caterpillers; and they shall lift up a shout against thee." We will examine this further, with the aid of The Holy Bible .But first, let us continue in our identifying The Harlot...
That great city Bablylon, Further considered
In the bible book of Revelation, "That great city" without question, is refering to Jerusalem. In one instance, The Holy city "New Jerusalem"is also spoken of as "that great city".The rest of the time it is referring to "Babylon the great", as it states in the 18/th chapter, verse 10..."that great city Babylon, that mighty city". In speaking of God's "two wittnesses" in the eleventh chapter, it states, "And their dead bodies shall lie in the street of the great city, which spiritually is called Sodom and Egypt, where also our Lord was crucified." vs.8. Rather that only speaking only of a physical location, it points more to those ruling at Jerusalem,and will rule there again in the future, according to the prophesies about anti-christ"Their "city", or organization is "spiritually" called Sodom and Egypt. "Hear the word of the LORD(YHVH) you rulers of Sodom; give ear unto the law of our God, ye people of Gomorrah."Isaiah 1:10.This is "the vision of Isaiah the son of Amoz, which he saw concerning Judah and Jerusalem" 1:1.Marlon Brando , once said that the Jews own Hollywood.He was immediately attacked and pressured to apologize.What was was sin?There have been some very well made and entertaining films. But Hollywood makes light of some very serious sin! Introducing homosexuality as an "acceptable" lifestyle, and drowning the airwaves with this satanic propoganda! They have not asked for, or waited on YHVH to restore them to their homeland, but have" gone down to Egypt for help".Isaiah 31:1.They haved turned to Satan. They have relied on their own riches and wit and military might. Even in riding atop the governmental beast to control it,which recieves it's power from satan, in order to acheive her goals.They may soon make the claim of ruling for"God" while sitting in the throne of God, but to Him they are "Sodom and Egypt".2 Thes. 2:4. Rev.11:8. But what is the signifigance of the phrase, where out Lord was also crucified?What is the connection to modern day Babylon? Taken from the website, http://www.samliquidation.com/talmud.htm, I quote," The Jewish Scribes claim the Talmud is partly a collection of traditions Moses gave them in oral form. These had not yet been written down in Jesus' time. Christ condemned the traditions of the Mishnah (early Talmud) and those who taught it (Scribes and Pharisees), because the Talmud nullifies the teachings of the Holy Bible."The famous warning of Jesus Christ about the tradition of men that voids Scripture (Mark 7:1-13), is in fact, a direct reference to the Talmud, or more specifically, the forerunner of the first part of it, the Mishnah, which existed in oral form during Christ's lifetime, before being committed to writing. Mark chapter 7, from verse one through thirteen, represents Our Lord's pointed condemnation of the Mishnah."The Talmud is Judaism's holiest book (actually a collection of books). Its authority takes precedence over the Old Testament in Judaism. Evidence of this may be found in the Talmud itself, Erubin 21b (Soncino edition): "My son, be more careful in the observance of the words of the Scribes than in the words of the Torah (Old Testament)."
Here it can be seen that the Jewish religion of today is the same religion that condemned our Lord to be crucified.It is an outgrowth or continuation of that very religion practised by those scribes and pharisees. The origins of that religion can be said to be Satanic, for Jesus said to them,""Ye are of your father the devil, and the lusts of your father ye will do!"John 8:44.
"Kabbalah is a mixture of demonic activity, pagan philosophy, gnosticism and the Hebrew Bible. Kabbalah is the mystical religious stream in Judaism... In all periods it was influenced by foreign spiritual currents, such as gnosticism and neo-platonism."...[p. 1 from..http://www.fixedearth.com/kabbala%20IV.htm
The Jewish Encyclopedia (under Cabbala, p464, 458) traces the Cabala to the Chaldees, thence to Lucifer in the garden of Eden. Amos 5:25-26 and Acts 7:43 refer to the star Saturn who represents Satan, Titan, Tammuz, Dragon, Bacchus, Kronos, Nimrod, Ninus, Sagittarius (the Archer), Oanes, Osiris, Mars, Pluto, Iswara, Deoius, etc.,
"All truly dogmatic religions have issued from the Kabala and return to it; everything scientific and grand in the religious dreams of the Illuminati, Jacob Boeheme, Swedenborg, Saint Martin, and others is borrowed from the Kabala; all Masonic associations owe to it their secrets and their symbols." [ Albert Pike "Morals and Dogma," 28th Degree p. 747 ]
"Masonry is a search for light. That light. That search leads us back, as you see, to the Kabala. In that ancient and little understood (source book) the infinite will find the source of many doctrines; and (he) may in time come to understand the Hermetic philosophers, the Alchemists, all the Anti-papal Thinkers of the Middle Ages, and Emanuel Swedenborg." [ Albert Pike "Morals and Dogma," 28th Degree p. 741 ]
The Qabalah may be defined as being the esoteric Jewish doctrine. It is called in Hebrew QBLH, Qabalah, which is derived from the root QBL, Qibel, meaning "to receive". This appellation refers to the custom of handing down the esoteric tradition by oral transmission, and is nearly allied to "tradition". S.L. MacGregor Mathews
Amos 5:25-27, "You have offered me sacrifices and offerings in the wilderness forty years, O house of Israel. But you have borne the tabernacle of your Moloch and Chiun, (names for the planet Saturn), the STAR of your god, of which you made images. So I shall send you away in captivity beyond Damascus."
King Solomon took this pagan symbol to himself when he went into idolatry and it became known in Arabic magic and occult circles as "the Seal of Solomon".
Should these Jewish connections to the occult surprise us? Even during the times of the Kings of Israel, it is written of King Manasseh,that he "used enchantments, and dealt with familiar spirits and wizards:" Kings 21:6. Dealing with "familiar spirits"means communication with demons, those angels that have gathered with Satan himself.
The black arts and the occult are the same thing as sorcery.Considert television, for example.
The average American spends 1550 hours watching television every year.That's an average of 194 eight-hour days a year.Or, 39 forty-hour work weeks spent staring at the tube..And who's agenda does TV cater to? Those who have the money. Those that do the advertising.The same multinational corporations, and everything incorporated into that, which is just about everything, the whole world.(eccept for a few rogue states, which they plan to deal with as we speak) This world, or the world mankind has created.The TV does use subliminal mind control, but not inaudible or backwards voices. Those using the TV for their agenda have a great grasp of the human psyce in it's sinful condition. While constantly putting your sinful condition in your face,they encourage you to sin all the more; in new and more depraved ways all the time, but very gradually, so as to arouse no acusation (we are just giving the public what they want, they say) They take the position of "God", so wise and intelligent, all knowing, and powerful. They know all about you! And So inteligent as to have all the worlds resources and power at it's disposal. An amazing system indeed, but not having YHVH as it's source, but Satan, in all it's trickery and deception and "logic" which so few can see through, in it's "elevated" form of mind control.Any form of entertainment that will not submit to their plan or dares to speak against or expose it is blacklisted.And if any in the entertainment industry get wise and try to speak up, they are castigated, or dirt is dug up on them, and if all else fails they are killed. Nutralized one way or another in other words. Indeed TV it is not all beautiful eye candy. They also show their teeth at times and the cruelty and visciousness they are willing to commit, so as to have all in fear and submisive.The world is one now, or nearly so.But alas all who submit lose something. They lose their soul. Their freedom of speech. They lose themselves to gain whatever existance in this twisted world they may obtain. How many would give their life for the truth.Take a look at those who had enough guts to speak up during the sixties. They are all gone now.
Wow! What a tool this is in the sorcerers hand! With powerful tools such as Television,and the power that money can buy in this world ,both political, and even covering every facet modern day life, certainly the words of the Revelation "for by thy sorceries were all nations deceived" becomes clear.Revelation 18:23.
Further scriptural identification
"And in her was found the blood of prophets and of saints..." Revelation 18:24
"woe unto you! For ye build the sepultures of the prophets, and your fathers killed them." Luke 11:47 Here, in speaking of your "fathers" reminds us of the words of Daniel 11:24..."And he shall do that which his fathers have not done, nor his fathers fathers."YHVH is not familiar with the fathers of other nations, but is of his own, the nation of Israel.It further says,"Neither shall he regard the God of his fathers".Correct,for JHVH is the God of his fathers,such as Abraham, Issac, and Jacob.Listen further to Daniel..."and shall be broken; yea, also the prince of the covenant(Jesus Christ).And after the leauge made with him he shall work deceitfully: for he shall become strong with a small people. He shall enter peaceably even upon the fattest places of the province;"Daniel 11:23,24.
"Which of the prophets have not your fathers persecuted?and they have slain them which showed before of the coming of the just one; of whom ye have been now the betrayers and murderers:" Acts 7:52.
"of the jews: Who both killed the Lord Jesus, and their own prophets, and have persecuted us; and they please not God, and are contrary to all men: forbidding us to speak to the Gentiles that they might be saved" 1 Thes.2:15,16.
Yes, the saints at Jerusalem were persecuted and scattered.Not content at that, Zealous Jews such as Saul, sought after the disciples in other cities"whether they were men or women, he might bring them bound unto Jerusalem." Acts9:2.
A few years later , The Lord Jesus Christ, in the Revelation that he gave to the apostle John says, "Behold, I will make them of the synogogue of Satan, which say they are Jews, and are not, but do lie; behold, I will make them to come and to worship at thy feet, and to know that I have loved thee." Rev. 3:9. He doesnt say a synogoue, but THE synogogue of Satan.It does make sense that this Harlot who reigns over "the kings of the earth" is in actuality The Church of Satan.
But in modern times, things seem to be done more in secret, or undercover , as it were. Babylon loves to remain a "mystery".But the word of God promises..."For, behold, the LORD(YHVH) cometh out of his place to punish the inhabitants of the earth for their iniquity: the earth also shall disclose her blood, and shall no more cover her slain." Isaiah 26:21. When the earths slain will be uncovered, where will they be found? "And in her was found the blood of prophets , and of saints, and of all who have been slain upon the earth." Rev.19:24
The words of Jesus Christ ring ever truer today in connection with Babylon the Great..., "That the blood of all the prophets, which was shed from the foundation of the world, may be required of this generation." Luke 11:50
Doesn't it make sense, that during Jesus time on this earth, he would confront those, who at this time of the end ,would be grown in power so great, as to reign over the kings of the earth.The head of the house of the wicked, so to speak? Of course, for God knows the end from the beginning.Those evil ones, whose religious beginnings can still be traced back to Jesus's time, had such vehement hatred for the Son of God, so as to have him put to death. Just as they called on Rome to do the actual execution; Christ puts it into the heart of the political beast to turn on them, this religious harlot.THEY are the ones that do the actual execution "And the ten horns which thou sawest upon the beast, these shall hate the whore, and shall make her desolate and naked, and shall burn her with fire.For God hath put it in their hearts to fulfil his will, and to agree, and give their kingdom unto the beast, until the words of God are fulfilled." Rev. 17:16,17.
"Reward her even as she rewarded you, and double unto her double according to her works: in the cup which she hath filled fill to her double." Revelation 18:6.In severity Babylon will receive double, for she deserves it .Also, it is true that she recieved judgement back in 70 A.D., when the Roman armies destroyed her, and will pay once again for her sins ; in this sense double also.
Then, as it was the political beast(Roman head)that did the actual and physical execution, so shall Jesus Christ himself do the actual execution of this seven headed political beast.Rev.19:11-21."And I saw an angel standing in the sun; and he cried with a loud voice, saying to all the fowls that fly in the midst of heaven,Come and gather yourselves together unto the supper of the great God; That ye may eat the flesh of kings, and the flesh of captains, and the flesh of mighty men..."
As can be seen from the scriptures in Daniel, such as 11:46, and What Paul says in 2 Thesalonians 2:4; this anti-christ will actually sit on God's throne, not in Rome or some other location, but in the "Holy mountain", which is Mount Zion, over in Jerusalem.Does it not make sense that the two wittnesses spoken of in Revelation eleven, who prophesy thousand two hundred and threescore days, clothed in sackcloth, would also be preaching in or close to this same location? In fact the word states in 11:8, that "their dead bodies shall lie in the street of the great city" This is "that great city, Babylon" as stated in the 18/th chapter, verse 10.This is Jerusalem.
Who is a JEW ?
In speaking of Jew here let us not be moved to predjudice against any race of people. In fact the decendants of Abraham are a much blessed people.As God promised to Abraham, "That in blessing thee, and in multiplying I will multiply thy seed as the stars of heaven, and the sand which is upon the sea shore; and thy seed shall possess the gate of his enemies; and in thy seed shall all the nations of the earth be blessed;" Genesis 22:17,18. A grand promise indeed!
And in speaking with the Samaritan woman at the well, Jesus said,"we know what we worship: for salvation is of the Jews."John 4:22.
Paul, in writing to the Roman brethren in chapter eleven says, thou "wert grafted contrary to nature into a good olive tree."vs.24. The tree itself is good.He speaks of them partaking "of the root and fatness of the olive tree."vs17.The tree is of God and is God's planting.But some of the branches have been" broken off."In this sense, those grafted in, out of the nations, are also Jews; for Paul also says in Romans,"For he is not a Jew, which is one outwardly; ...But he is a Jew, which is one inwardly; and circumcision is that of the heart, in the spirit, and not in the letter; whose praise is not of men, but of God." 2:28,29.
That is why in Revelation 7:4-8,the 144,000, also spoken of in the fourteenth chapter, who follow the LAMB whithersoever he goeth, are said to come from the twelve tribes of Israel, for they are truly God's city, and "Holy nation"Hebrews 11:16,Exodus 19:6. "Israelites indeed in whom there is no guile"John 1:47.
Also the twenty four elders, from among them, in praising the "Lamb of God"sing; thou "hast redeemed us to God by thy blood out of every kindred, and tongue and nation;" Although from among every kindren and nation, they are now "God's holy nation",and are counted as the promised seed of Abraham that shall bless all nations of the earth, along with our King and principle seed, Jesus Christ.
Jesus and all the apostles, as well as all the biblical prophets descended from the line of Abraham.These are indeed very speacial ones who God loves most intensely.In our day also,there are many righteous men that are truly Abraham's seed, both naturally and spiritually. But to those that say they are Jews, and are of the synogogue of Satan, Jesus says, they "are not, but do lie"Rev. 3:9.
In light of all the forgoing scriptures, the meaning of the following words of Paul should be clear in our minds;"Tribulation and anguish, upon every soul of man that doeth evil, of the Jew FIRST , and also of the gentile; But glory, honour, and peace, of every man that worketh good, to the Jew first, and also to the gentile." Romans 2:9,10.The same word "Jew'"is used for two very different groups of people, in fact exact opposites."Babylon the Great" is the FIRST to recieve God's judgement of execution.(Rev. 17:16-18.and ch.19) Following this, Christ turns his attention to the "beast" and the kings of the earth(the gentiles).Rev. 19:19.Just as paul said. Glory and honour and peace comes first to those who are" israelites indeed" who are counted as the real Jew's in His eyes.They are of the 144,000, "which follow the lamb withersoever he goeth."They are the" firstfruits to God and to the lamb." Rev.14:4 It is of them God says, "Blessed and holy is he that hath part in the first resurection: on such the second death has no power, but they shall be priests of God and of Christ, and shall reign with him a thousand years" Rev. 20:4 Those they will reign over, as priests of God, are not granted eternal life, until proving faithful after the final test at the end of the thousand years. 20: 7-15.In this way,"the rest of the dead lived not again until the thousand years were finished.." are fulfilled.Rev.20:5. The thousand year reign of Christ is what many old testament writers spoke of, such as Isaiah at Isaiah 35. Words such as "the eyes of the blind shall be opened, and the ears of the deaf shall be unstopped. Then shall the lame man leap as an hart, and the tongue of the dumb sing: for in the wilderness shall waters break out, and streams in the desert."vs. 5,6."Certainly the reign of Christ will be a great time of healing for all who would love him, and for even the earth itself."These may be spoken of as gentiles, but after prooving faithful, and at the end of the thousand years, they will be included in the "one flock" of God
More identification of the Harlot!
"For I will gather all nations against Jerusalem to battle....Then shall the LORD YHVH go forth, and fight against those nations, as when he fought in the day of battle." Zechariah 14:2,3.This is the exact senario spelled out in the book of Revelation 17:12-18 and chapter 19, and even as Paul said.It is well worth reading. But in truth, we need to use our decernment here.For God is here speaking in reality of those who are :"Israelites indeed", those who are counted as "Jews", whatever race their flesh may have descended from.Here again, they are instructed to flee to the mountains, just as Jesus told his disciples.vs. 5. Compare Mathew 24:15-22. But those who fall for the whole false messianic thing , definetely should consider what Zechariah says, and compare it to Revelation, where the nations turn on the harlot, and burn her with fire.This should cause them at least to probe a bit further as to Babylon the Great's identity.God is so great! God's word is purified seven times! Psalm 12:6.
Lets continue with something from the prophet Habakkuk which well describes our time and the Final days yet to come..Chapter 3
"Yea also, because he transgresseth by wine, he is a proud man, neither keepeth at home, who enlargeth his desire as hell, and is as death, and cannot be satisfied, but gathereth unto him all nations, and heapeth unto him all people: Shall not all these take up a parable against him, and a taunting proverb against him, and say, Woe to him that increaseth that which is not his! how long? and to him that laden himself with thick clay!
Shall they not rise up suddenly that shall vex thee, and thou shalt be for booties unto them? Because thou hast spoiled many nations, all the remnant of the nations shall spoil thee; because of men's blood, and for the violence of the land, of the city, and of all that dwell therein...Thou hast consulted shame to thy house by cutting off many people, and has sinned against thy soul." Habakkuk 2:5-10.
Some may conclude this must be adressed to the United States, for all her military might, and her operations around the world.But in a greater sense God is addressing those who really control the U.S., and this is revealed in verse 16, where it reads," Thou art filled with shame for glory: drink also, and let thy foreskin be uncovered: the cup of the LORD's right hand shall be turned unto thee, and shameful spewing on thy glory." As Paul has said, "he is a Jew, which is one inwardly; and circumcision is that of the heart, in the spirit,... whose praise is of God".Romans 2:29 God will reveal that these men,who say they are Jews,and are not, but do lie, are in the spirit "uncircumcised".Therefore he says, let "thy foreskin be uncovered" or reveal who you really are;uncircumcised and not Jews, but heathen! Verse 15 states,"Woe to him that giveth his neighbor drink, that puttest thy bottle to him, and makest him drunken also, that thou mayest look on their nakedness!". Yes, "for all nations have drunk of the wine of the wrath of her fornication" Revelation 18:3.
Do you think it is just a coincidence that the hebrew scriptures are full of denounciations against Israel.God's word is purifies seven times. There is nothing like it and nothing it can be compared to. While everyone is trying to pin a sybolic meaning on everything, Jehovah hides the simple truth from the wise and prudent, and reveals it to mere babes.It is just so simple they cannot see it.They believe it requires some "advanced "and "educated reasoning", but God reveals these theives and imposters to be mere fools.And their foolishness will become known to all. They are void of God's Holy spirit, yet they set themselves up. They set themselves up for a fall. How shall they flee from the judgement of Gehenna?They will pay the price of God's judgement. They deserve it!
The document that I mentioned towards the biginning of ths page, that I said I would name later is called, "The protocals of the learned elders of Zion"They can be found at http://www.apfn.org/apfn/zion.htmand arewell worth reading. Very interesting.At the end of the page here on Revelation, I have listed some very enlightening quotes from these "protocals". Please read.
They are very contoversial and are claimed by many to be a forgery.Many said it was Hitler's Bible.He used it as an outline to try to acheive what would have been his "new Order".Of course he failed, but the plans outlined in this document appear to be nearing completion.
Who really is it that will sit "in the temple of God, shewing himself that he is God"? 2 Thes.2:4.According to the "Protocals" it will have to be someone from the "holy seed of David".He would no doubt have to be someone that would satisfy the Jewish idea of the coming Messiah, as well,it now seems, as the Christian beleif in the second coming of Christ.We will wait to see. No doubt this is the "abomination of desolation",that Jesus spoke of ,"standing in the holy place where it ought not".Mark 13:14.Mathew 24:15.And What really is the "image of the beast"?And how can we identify it using God's word?What are we to do when we see this abomination?In the second article here entitled "One Master" and"image of the beast" (part two), this is considered for your examination.
"for his devise is against Babylon, to destroy it; because it is the vengence of the LORD, the vengence of his temple" Jeremiah 51:11.
Come down and sit in the dust, O virgin daughter of Babylon, sit on the ground: there is no throne, O daughter of the Chaldeans:for thou shalt no more be called tender and delicate...Thy nakedness shall be uncovered, yea, thy shame shall be seen: I will take vengence, and will not meet thee as a man...Sit thou silent, and get thee into darkness, O daughter of the Chaldeans: for thou shalt no more be called, The Lady of kingdoms... For thou hast trusted in thy wickedness: thiou hast said, None seeth me.Thy wisdom anf thy knowledge, it hath perverted thee... Isa.47 Paul and the man of lawlessness. Remember that when I was with you I told you these things? Says Paul to the Thessalonians. Paul was a Pharisee. As he says in his letter to the Philippians 3.6 "Circumcised the eighth day, of the stock of Israel, [of] the tribe of Benjamin, an Hebrew of the Hebrews; as touching the law, a Pharisee;Concerning zeal, persecuting the church; touching the righteousness which is in the law, blameless." Could it be that Paul had a secret knowledge of the plans of this elite Jewish cabal? Plans which would include their instituting their own Messiah, by which they could rule the world? Could this be why the zeal was so intense among the Jewish leaders , so that not only was Christ put to death, but Christians were also hunted down and persecuted and killed? As the scriptures report in the book of Acts; 9:1,2. "And Saul, yet breathing out threatenings and slaughter against the disciples of the Lord, went unto the high priest,And desired of him letters to Damascus to the synagogues, that if he found any of this way, whether they were men or women, he might bring them bound unto Jerusalem. " And could this also be why Paul could not enter into Jerusalem, thought there were many Christians living in Jerusalem at the time, evidently in relative peace? Acts 21:20-26 And why when he was spotted by there, even in disguise (head shaven), they stirred up the people against him , and tried to kill him,. But he was rescued by the chief captain of the band with soldiers and centurians. And the night following the Lord stood by him, and said, "Be of good cheer, Paul: for as thou hast testified of me in Jerusalem, so must thou also bear witness at Rome." Indeed even Christ himself in his parable of the vineyard was saying as much , when he said at Mark 12:7, “But those husbandmen said among themselves, This is the heir, let us kill him, and the inheritance shall be ours.;” Yes, this idea is one of Satan. He wants to take the place of Christ, and to rule the world. Hence as Paul says of this man of perdition, “he as God, sitteth in the temple of God, showing himself that he is God.” Paul was telling the disciples of these things. And in the second chapter of Thesalonians he told them that before the day of Christ could begin, these things would actually take place.
More nakedness uncovered
In light of the revelations of Iraqi prisoner abuse (70-90% said to be falsly imprisoned), The words of the ancient prophet Ezeliel directed against Jerusalem, appear all the more true today as we witness the present day "Judeo-Christian" rampage, in their lust for world power, and total control over the entire inhabited earth.
Thus saith the Lord GOD; This is Jerusalem: I have set it in the midst of the nations and countries that are round about her. And she hath changed my judgments into wickedness more than the nations, and my statutes more than the countries that are round about her: for they have refused my judgments and my statutes, they have not walked in them. Therefore thus saith the Lord GOD; Because ye multiplied more than the nations that are round about you, and have not walked in my statutes, neither have kept my judgments, neither have done according to the judgments of the nations that are round about you; Therefore thus saith the Lord GOD; Behold, I, even I, am against thee, and will execute judgments in the midst of thee in the sight of the nations. And I will do in thee that which I have not done, and whereunto I will not do any more the like, because of all thine abominations. Ez. 5:5-9.
as if that were a very little thing, thou wast corrupted more than they in all thy ways. Ez.16:47
Jerusalem was destroyed once, and then twice by God JHVH. But their wickedness has continued to grow down til the time of the end, when she will recieve the most devastating and final judgement by God, to which all of the related "old testament" scriptures ultimately all point to.
.Listen to some of the the glaring similarities between the words the ancient prophet Ezekiel wrote pertaining to Jerusalem and to those penned by the Apostle John pertaining to "Babylon the Great".
I clothed thee also with broidered work, and shod thee with badgers' skin, and I girded thee about with fine linen, and I covered thee with silk. I decked thee also with ornaments, and I put bracelets upon thy hands, and a chain on thy neck. And I put a jewel on thy forehead, and earrings in thine ears, and a beautiful crown upon thine head. Thus wast thou decked with gold and silver; and thy raiment was of fine linen, and silk, and broidered work; thou didst eat fine flour, and honey, and oil: and thou wast exceeding beautiful...Ez. 16:10-13.
And the woman was arrayed in purple and scarlet colour, and decked with gold and precious stones and pearls, Revelation 17:4
But thou didst trust in thine own beauty, and playedst the harlot because of thy renown, and pouredst out thy fornications on every one that passed by; his it was. Ez. 16:15
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. Rev. 18:3.
Thou hast also taken thy fair jewels of my gold and of my silver, which I had given thee, and madest to thyself images of men, and didst commit whoredom with them, And tookest thy broidered garments, and coveredst them: and thou hast set mine oil and mine incense before them. My meat also which I gave thee, fine flour, and oil, and honey, wherewith I fed thee, thou hast even set it before them for a sweet savour: and thus it was, saith the Lord GOD. Ez. 16:17-19
And the kings of the earth, who have committed fornication and lived deliciously with her..Rev. 18:9
The merchandise of gold, and silver, and precious stones, and of pearls, and fine linen, and purple, and silk, and scarlet, and all thyine wood, and all manner vessels of ivory, and all manner vessels of most precious wood, and of brass, and iron, and marble, And cinnamon, and odours, and ointments, and frankincense, and wine, and oil, and fine flour, and wheat, and beasts, and sheep, and horses, and chariots, and slaves, and souls of men. Ez. 16:12,13.
That thou hast also built unto thee an eminent place, and hast made thee an high place in every street. Ez. 16:31
for thy merchants were the great men of the earth; Rev. 18:23
Thou hast built thy high place at every head of the way, and hast made thy beauty to be abhorred, and hast opened thy feet to every one that passed by, and multiplied thy whoredoms. Ez. 16: 24,25.
and hast not been as an harlot, in that thou scornest hire; But as a wife that committeth adultery, which taketh strangers instead of her husband! They give gifts to all whores: but thou givest thy gifts to all thy lovers, and hirest them, that they may come unto thee on every side for thy whoredom. Ez. 16:31-33.
And upon her forehead was a name written, MYSTERY, BABYLON THE GREAT, THE MOTHER OF HARLOTS AND ABOMINATIONS OF THE EARTH. Rev. 17:5
Thus saith the Lord GOD; Because thy filthiness was poured out, and thy nakedness discovered through thy whoredoms with thy lovers, and with all the idols of thy abominations, and by the blood of thy children, which thou didst give unto them; Behold, therefore I will gather all thy lovers, with whom thou hast taken pleasure, and all them that thou hast loved, with all them that thou hast hated; I will even gather them round about against thee, and will discover thy nakedness unto them, that they may see all thy nakedness. And I will judge thee, as women that break wedlock and shed blood are judged; and I will give thee blood in fury and jealousy. And I will also give thee into their hand, and they shall throw down thine eminent place, and shall break down thy high places: they shall strip thee also of thy clothes, and shall take thy fair jewels, and leave thee naked and bare. They shall also bring up a company against thee, and they shall stone thee with stones, and thrust thee through with their swords. And they shall burn thine houses with fire, and execute judgments upon thee in the sight of many women: and I will cause thee to cease from playing the harlot, and thou also shalt give no hire any more. So will I make my fury toward thee to rest, and my jealousy shall depart from thee, and I will be quiet, and will be no more angry. Ez. 16: 36-42
And the ten horns which thou sawest upon the beast, these shall hate the whore, and shall make her desolate and naked, and shall eat her flesh, and burn her with fire. For God hath put in their hearts to fulfil his will Rev.17: 16,17
Reward her even as she rewarded you, and double unto her double according to her works: in the cup which she hath filled fill to her double.How much she hath glorified herself, and lived deliciously, so much torment and sorrow give her: for she saith in her heart, I sit a queen, and am no widow, and shall see no sorrow. Therefore shall her plagues come in one day, death, and mourning, and famine; and she shall be utterly burned with fire: for strong is the Lord God who judgeth her. Rev. 18:6-8
And they shall deal with thee hatefully, and shall take away all thy labour, and shall leave thee naked and bare: and the nakedness of thy whoredoms shall be discovered, both thy lewdness and thy whoredoms.Ez. 23:29
Thy mother is like a vine in thy blood, planted by the waters: she was fruitful and full of branches by reason of many waters.Ez. 19:10
Come hither; I will shew unto thee the judgment of the great whore that sitteth upon many waters. Rev. 17:1
The two very different women of Revelation
Notice again, that in the designation, "that great city", two different cities are named. One is at Revelation 21:10 which reads...And he carried me away in the spirit to a great and high mountain, and shewed me that great city, the holy Jerusalem, descending out of heaven from God. She is further described at Hebrews 12:22But ye are come unto mount Sion, and unto the city of the living God, the heavenly Jerusalem, and to an innumerable company of angels.To the general assembly and church of the firstborn, which are written in heaven, and to God the Judge of all, and to the spirits of just men made perfect, And to Jesus the mediator of the new covenant,...She stands in stark contrast to the other "great city" mentioned in Revelation. For example atRev 14:8we read..And there followed another angel, saying, Babylon is fallen, is fallen, that great city, because she made all nations drink of the wine of the wrath of her fornication. She is further rerferred to as "that great city" at Rev. 17:18,Rev. 18:21,etc...
There are also two women of revelation which correspond to these two "great cities". The one representing Babylon, "the Great" is described as an harlot.
Rev 17:3-5...he carried me away in the spirit into the wilderness: and I saw a woman sit upon a scarlet coloured beast, full of names of blasphemy, having seven heads and ten horns.And upon her forehead [was] a name written, MYSTERY, BABYLON THE GREAT, THE MOTHER OF HARLOTS AND ABOMINATIONS OF THE EARTH. She also, is called Jerusalem, for at Rev 11:8 it states in connection with the martyrdom of God's two faithful wittnesses...And their dead bodies [shall lie] in the street of "the great city", which spiritually is called Sodom and Egypt, where also our Lord was crucified.Our Lord Jesus was crucified at Jerusalem; which Paul says, pertaining to her in comparison with the heavenly..For it is written, that Abraham had two sons, the one by a bondmaid, the other by a freewoman. But he [who was] of the bondwoman was born after the flesh; but he of the freewoman [was] by promise.Which things are an allegory: for these are the two covenants; the one from the mount Sinai, which gendereth to bondage, which is Agar.
"For this Agar is mount Sinai in Arabia, and answereth to Jerusalem which now is, and is in bondage with her children."
And connecting us back to the other woman of revelation, Paul says...But Jerusalem which is above is free, which is the mother of us all. This is the other woman of revelation described in chapter 12 which reads...And there appeared a great wonder in heaven; a woman clothed with the sun, and the moon under her feet, and upon her head a crown of twelve stars. These twelve stars represent the twelve spiritual tribes of Israel, spoken of at Revelation 7:4... And I heard the number of them which were sealed: [and there were] sealed an hundred [and] forty [and] four thousand of all the tribes of the children of Israel.Twelve times twelve thousand, or twelve thousand to each tribe.Spirit sons.
It is clear God has two women, corresponding to two covenants. The one covenant, of law through Moses.The fruit of this covenant proved to be bad, like the wild grapes referred to in Isaiah, describing the nation of Israel...Isa 5:4What could have been done more to my vineyard, that I have not done in it? wherefore, when I looked that it should bring forth grapes, brought it forth wild grapes?The word translated wild here, actually means poison, in the hebrew.Or like the bad figs described atJer 24:2One basket [had] very good figs, [even] like the figs [that are] first ripe: and "the other basket [had] very naughty figs, which could not be eaten, they were so bad".As John the Baptist said to the Jews who in the first century came to him to be baptised of him...Luk 3:8Bring forth therefore fruits worthy of repentance, and begin not to say within yourselves, We have Abraham to [our] father: for I say unto you, That God is able of these stones to raise up children unto Abraham. Israel is often spoken of as an unfaithful woman; for example at Ezekiel 23:2 and also16:30, which reads ...How weak is thine heart, saith the Lord GOD, seeing thou doest all these [things]; the work of an imperious whorish woman; Speaking of Israel, Jeremiah says, They say, If a man put away his wife, and she go from him, and become another man's, shall he return unto her again? shall not that land be greatly polluted? but thou hast played the harlot with many lovers;
The" New Covenant" of which Jesus was the bringer of ,and the cornerstone of, is one of unhypocryical love and faithfulness, fulfilling the commandments of God in truth and in spirit, for the Father is looking for such like ones to worship him.John 4:23But the hour cometh, and now is, when the true worshippers shall worship the Father in spirit and in truth: for the Father seeketh such to worship him.Jer 31:33But this [shall be] the covenant that I will make with the house of Israel; After those days, saith the LORD, I will put my law in their inward parts, and write it in their hearts; and will be their God, and they shall be my people.
As Paul says...But as then he that was born after the flesh persecuted him [that was born] after the Spirit, even so [it is] now.Gal 4:29
Yes indeed, Babylon has been the chief persecuter of God's chosen ones.As it reads at Rev 18:24And in her was found the blood of prophets, and of saints, and of all that were slain upon the earth. It all fits. So God had two covenant peoples. Both married to him, alegoricly speaking... his two women.The one, after the flesh, proved unfaithful to him. They have been sought for and used by Satan himself, for the outworking of his great plan of deception, to " plant the tabernacles of his palace between the seas in the glorious holy mountain"( Dn. 11:45) in impersonating, and elevating himself above God."so that he as God sitteth in the temple of God, shewing himself that he is God."The glorious holy mountain, being Mount Zion, in Jerusalem. And he shall speak [great] words against the most High, and shall wear out the saints of the most High, and think to change times and laws: and they shall be given into his hand until a time and times and the dividing of time.
But the judgment shall sit, and they shall take away his dominion, to consume and to destroy [it] unto the end.
And the kingdom and dominion, and the greatness of the kingdom under the whole heaven, shall be given to the people of the saints of the most High, whose kingdom [is] an everlasting kingdom, and all dominions shall serve and obey him. Daniel 7:25-27
And I John saw the holy city, new Jerusalem, coming down from God out of heaven, prepared as a bride adorned for her husband.And I heard a great voice out of heaven saying, Behold, the tabernacle of God [is] with men, and he will dwell with them, and they shall be his people, and God himself shall be with them, [and be] their God. And God shall wipe away all tears from their eyes; and there shall be no more death, neither sorrow, nor crying, neither shall there be any more pain: for the former things are passed away.And he that sat upon the throne said, Behold, I make all things new. And he said unto me, Write: for these words are true and faithful.Rev. 21:2-5
Paul says at Galatians 4:26...But Jerusalem which is above is free, which is the mother of us all.Paul and the other Kings and priests who reign with Christ also make up and are a part of what is know as "New Jerusalem".How? The woman referrred to in Revelation 12, that is in birth pangs, and is to give birth to the Kingdom, is the new covenant which produces and gathers those that do become part of, and in the end make up "New Jerusalem" itself."And I John saw the holy city, new Jerusalem, coming down from God out of heaven, prepared as a bride adorned for her husband."
That is why at Revelation 12:13 it says"when the dragon saw that he was cast unto the earth, he persecuted the woman which brought forth the man [child]."It means essentially persecuting those who are a part of this new covenant.At the same time they are the seed of the woman as mentioned in verse 17. "And the dragon was wroth with the woman, and went to make war with the remnant of her seed,"in that they are children of the New Covenant.
The birth of the Kingdom of heaven begins with war in heaven, but the gathereing of the saints does not take place til the end of the tribulation, three and a half times later.This is the marriage of the lamb.
They mystery of the two women is revealed for those who have ears to hear!
The Lord GOD hath sworn by himself, saith the LORD the God of hosts, I abhor the excellency of Jacob, and hate his palaces: therefore will I deliver up the city with all that is therein. Mic 1:3-5 For, behold, the LORD cometh forth out of his place, and will come down, and tread upon the high places of the earth. And the mountains shall be molten under him, and the valleys shall be cleft, as wax before the fire, [and] as the waters [that are] poured down a steep place. For the transgression of Jacob [is] all this, and for the sins of the house of Israel.
Micah 4:11 Now also many nations are gathered against thee, that say, Let her be defiled, and let our eye look upon Zion.
12But they know not the thoughts of the LORD, neither understand they his counsel: for he shall gather them as the sheaves into the floor.
Rom 2:9Tribulation and anguish, upon every soul of man that doeth evil, of the Jew first, and also of the Gentile;
Yes, to those Jews in Jerusalem who do love their God and who will fight, and will see the true messiah return in all of his glory, blessing be upon them forever. Amen
For it shall be as written in Zechariah...
And it shall come to pass, [that] in all the land, saith the LORD, two parts therein shall be cut off [and] die; but the third shall be left therein.
And I will bring the third part through the fire, and will refine them as silver is refined, and will try them as gold is tried: they shall call on my name, and I will hear them: I will say, It [is] my people: and they shall say, The LORD [is] my God. Zechariah 13
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.
Behold, I will send my messenger, and he shall prepare the way before me: and the Lord, whom ye seek, shall suddenly come to his temple, even the messenger of the covenant, whom ye delight in: behold, he shall come, saith the LORD of hosts.
