The Spirit of Babylon...

I would like to share a revelation that my husband received the other morning…

While he was in prayer he heard,

“The stars of Babylon are fools in heaven. And those that are considered fools in Babylon are the stars of heaven.”

When we first read this, our initial thought is attributed to the unbeliever, or even the “stars of Hollywood.” But this doesn’t just apply to those who are of the world, this also applies to those who are in the church that seek earthly promotion and man’s approval. And although they may claim with their lips “not so”, their actions reveal their inner most desires and motives.

Even some who claim to be watchmen find themselves involved in an eternal hustle for popularity, subscribers, “likes” on social media, purchasers of their products, bookings, platforms, and offerings.

But when we look at the life of Christ, we see that He lived the complete opposite of what the majority of the church promotes today. Jesus lived simply, loved simply, served simply, and more importantly, He gave all honor to the Father, and made no reputation for Himself (Philippians 2:7).

In biblical times, Babylon was known for its power, riches and beauty. The most prominent king of ancient Babylon was Nebuchadnezzar, who is mentioned in several old testament accounts from the Book of Daniel, to Ezra and 2 Chronicles. However, in the Lord’s eyes, Babylon was a place full of idolatry, vanities, pride, and immorality. A disturbing fact is that when we view most of the western church today, we find some of the same characteristics within.

Revelation chapter 18 talks about the judgement and destruction of a woman called Mystery Babylon. There is much debate as to whether or not the scripture is referencing an actual place, or a spiritual system and mind set. The scriptures tend to argue both sides. In verse 4, we read that John hears a voice from heaven saying, “Come out of her my people, that you be not partakers of her sins, and that you receive not of her plagues.”

As we draw closer to the end of this dispensation (age of grace), we as the true Bride of Christ need to make sure that we are not partaking in the sins of spiritual of Babylon. In a day and age where pretty much everything is at our fingertips, just one click away, we need to use wisdom and make sure our flesh is disciplined and subjected under the spirit of truth, and not falling into the temptations of the evil one. We also need not to look for man’s approval of us, but God’s. Remember, the world will hate you because it hates Christ and the spirit of truth.

Let us humble ourselves and find contentment (and our identity) in Christ.

    WOW!! I just read this message this afternoon (5-22-19) and your message confirms what I heard earlier during the 3rd Watch of 5/22/19 @ 1:35am; I was thinking about some intercessory praying believers who just prayed for our country the "United States of America" and they are praying to our Lord Jesus Christ to "bless America" and protect her from harm and I remembered thinking after I read their prayers that NO ONE prayed about our need for repentance before our GOD as it states in 2 Chronicles 7:14!

    2 Chronicles 7:14 (KJV)
    "14 If my people, which are called by my name, shall humble themselves, and pray, and seek my face, and turn from their wicked ways; then will I hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin, and will heal their land."
    King James Version (KJV)
    Public Domain

    SO as I was thinking this, all of a sudden, @ 1:35am, I heard this term "Cotton Candy!"

    DEFINITION OF COTTON CANDY:
    cot·ton can·dy
    /ˈˌkätn ˈˌkandē/
    noun NORTH AMERICAN
    a mass of fluffy spun sugar, usually pink or white, wrapped around a stick or a paper cone.

    AND NEXT, SINCE I LOOKED AT MY COMPUTER CLOCK AS I HEARD THIS TERM "COTTON CANDY" @ 1:35am on 5/22/19, I decided to look up the number 135 in Strong's Concordance:

    ◄ 135. Addan ►
    Strong's Concordance
    Addan: a place in Babylon
    Original Word: אַדָּן
    Part of Speech: Proper Name Location
    Transliteration: Addan
    Phonetic Spelling: (ad-dawn')
    Definition: a place in Babylon
    ן proper name, of a location in Babylonia Ezra 2:59 (see כְּרוּב proper name)
    THE BOTTOM LINE:
    ***I think some believers need to stop "spinning sugary fluffy prayers with NO REPENTANCE" AND who are only praying "empty sugary words" to preserve their way of life (their books, likes, platforms, eBooks, conferences, workshops, seminars, homes,……..etc) because GOD ALMIGHTY IS NOT TO BE PLAYED WITH AND HE WILL NOT ANSWER "EMPTY SURGERY SOUNDING PRAYERS!!!

    JESUS "is" REAL- HE is ALIVE!!!!

    REPENT and get your house in order (that is PRAY for the confession of sins for yourself and for your loved ones and ask HIM to come into your heart and receive Jesus Christ as Lord & Savior as it is declared in ROMANS 10: 9-13!!!

    THIS IS IT!!!!!!!
