Babylon is dead
Jan 05, 2019
During the 60’s revolution, it was often argued that government should not try to legislate morality. This was used as an excuse to allow immorality, then legalizing it, then finally making it illegal to criticize immorality. Hence, we have moved from a society where morality was considered to be a virtue to one where morality is now politically incorrect.
The church grumbled but allowed immorality, not realizing that this was but the first step toward being censored for expressing their Christian viewpoints. Trying to convert a Jew to Christ was soon criticized on the grounds that Jews believe in the same God and are already under that God’s covenant. Some are now being persecuted for discussing Christ with Muslims, as if it is a crime for a Muslim to convert to Christianity.
Freedom of religion has turned into freedom from Christianity. The government model is being taken from that of first-century Greece, where Christian evangelism was limited to one’s private home or in a designated public forum such as Mars' Hill (Acts 17:22 KJV). Of course, the ultimate goal of the current Babylonian empire is to eradicate Christianity completely and to replace it with Masonic Luciferianism.
Freedom of Religion
When the printing press gave inexpensive, small Bibles to the public in Europe, men realized that the Roman Church was not really so Christian after all, at least not by biblical definition. This realization sparked the Protestant Reformation, and soon men found the biblical foundations of biblical government that could set men free of both sin and governmental tyranny.
Such freedom was not possible prior to the distribution of the Bible. The Bible was the first project of Gutenberg’s printing press in the mid-1400’s. This monumental event, prophesied in Revelation 10:2, where the “strong angel” (Peniel, I believe) gave us the “little book,” forever changed history. By 1517 the long Age of Thyatira came to an end (529-1517) and ushered us into the Age of Sardis (1517-1776).
Thyatira, or “New Tyre,” literally means “tyrant goddess.” Theo is the Greek word for “God.” Thya, or thea, is the feminine form of theos, and it means “goddess.” Tira, the last portion of Thyatira, is short for tyrannos, a “tyrant.” Prophetically speaking, When we relate the seven churches of the Old Testament to the seven churches of the book of Revelation, as John does, we see that Thyatira is the Jezebel church, that is, the church that is tyrannized and persecuted by Jezebel. Such was the Roman Church that dominated that age.
The Age of Sardis saw the rise of a precious stone (sardius), which John likens to those who finally overcame the power of Rome by declaring the authority of the Word. These precious stones (saints) found the principles of freedom in the word of God, and when they put those principles into practice (as best they knew how), the fruit of their labor was the American Republic.
In 1776, in the city of Philadelphia, the American forefathers drafted their Declaration of Independence, declaring boldly that all rights come from “the Creator” and not from men. This was another seminal moment in world history, ushering in the Age of Philadelphia (1776-1914), the Hezekiah Church of the Old Testament, the church with “a little strength” (Revelation 3:8 KJV). Hezekiah literally means “strength of Yah.”
The Church of Captivity
Unfortunately, the Philadelphia church was fatally flawed by its narrow application of the principles of freedom, for too many did not understand the law of Impartiality nor even the law of Jubilee. Hence, the impact of the American form of government was unsustainable and ended in 1914 with the Federal Reserve Act, which was passed on December 23, 1913 and which went into effect in 1914.
The end of the Philadelphia Age brought us into the Laodicean Age, the church of the captivity. In the Old Testament, the captivity was to Assyria and Babylon. In our time, it was a captivity to the bankers of Mystery Babylon. Technically, that Laodicean Age began to end in 1993 when “Saul” died at the end of the 40-Jubilee Pentecostal Age. That is when God sent out His word to conduct the Jubilee Prayer Campaign, beginning in November of 1993. It was the start of a post-Pentecostal Age, as we began to transition into the Tabernacles Age.
The first item on God’s agenda was to establish precedents in the divine court for the coming Kingdom. Second, it was to begin the process of transferring authority to those who could be entrusted with the task of ruling that Kingdom—that is, the overcomers. The first transfer of authority was from Pentecost to Tabernacles, from Church to Overcomer, from Saul to David. This took place during a 7½ year period from May 30, 1993 to November 30, 2000, as patterned after 2 Samuel 5:4, 5.
The larger transfer took place from 2014-2017 when God’s contract with the beast empires came to an end after “seven times.” Having received that authority fully, the world is changing to reflect the will of the overcomers, rather than the will of Saul or beast-men, because the overcomers (by definition) are those whose hearts are in agreement with God. They are not perfect yet, but instead of trying to change God’s mind to conform to man’s imperfections, they agree with God to the point of ruling against their own flesh.
Competing Views about Freedom
The Philadelphia Age, which began with such promise, alarmed those with competing agendas. They soon brought forth their own views of “freedom,” primarily by the development of Socialism, which sought to address the lack of fairness in nature by usurping the rights of the Creator and placing government back under the dominion of men. In other words, they sought to return to the same state of affairs that existed prior to the discovery of biblical freedom.
First they came out with Deism, an attempt to bridge the gap between biblical Christianity and atheistic Socialism. Deism set forth an impersonal god, and by putting a distance between God and man, they replaced the intimate God with a god who remained aloof and indifferent. This was nothing new, of course. The “Majestic God” of Islam was, in practice, quite similar and yet stands in stark contrast to the warm, personal God of Love presented by Jesus Christ.
Deism largely failed, because it did not meet the needs of men’s hearts. Only an intimate God can satisfy our innate need for love. Few seem to truly find this God of Love, and even fewer really come to grasp God’s love for all of His creation. They are hindered by the idea that God is powerless to reconcile the entire creation on the grounds that God cannot or will not overrule man’s “free will.” Thus, they do not truly grasp the promises of God, thinking that His promise is only a provision whereby man himself may choose his own eternal destiny.
But any sincere examination of the promises of God make it clear that the promises are not just good intentions. They are God’s commitment to make it happen, assured by His power, driven by His love, and implemented by His infinite wisdom.
Deism’s last gasp came with the theory that “God is dead,” first discussed by philosophers like Hegel and Mainlander, but popularized by Nietzsche in 1882.
Deism was replaced by atheistic Socialism. Yet whether we set forth an impersonal Creator who left the universe to its own devices, or deny Him altogether, the practical result is the same insofar as government is concerned. Either way, men are the only gods remaining to rule the creation, and therefore, all rights are granted by men and their governments. There is no Creator to whom men are accountable, either in this life or the next, and if we destroy ourselves, so be it. Man’s “free will” reigns supreme.
Socialism united with Darwinism to form the social and political foundations of Mystery Babylon. Man was reduced to the level of an animal, and his greater intelligence implied the right to rule. Man did indeed have authority over nature, as Genesis 1:26 tells us, but his right to rule was derived from the Creator, not from his own intelligence.
The assumption that man’s right to rule was derived from his intelligence also implied that those men and women who were most brilliant and educated had the right to rule other men, whereas God did not establish such authority over other men and women until Genesis 3:16, and even that authority was derived from the Creator, not man’s greater intelligence.
Socialism has thus returned us to the rule of tyrants. This was inevitable, of course, because in 1776 we had not yet reached the end of the “seven times” allotted to the beasts to rule mankind on account of the misuse of the Judah’s Dominion Mandate in biblical times. Hence, the American experiment was doomed to fail, ending in captivity to Mystery Babylon.
Yet we are now in a post-Babylonian world, if you can see it. A few months after taking office, President Obama declared in a speech in Turkey that America was no longer a Christian nation. This was reported by the Huffington Post on May 7, 2009.
He meant that Christian (biblical) morality had been replaced by Babylonian “values.”
His declaration reminds me of the comment by Cardinal Pucci, who told the pope at the Fifth Lateran Church Council in 1517,
“The whole body of Christendom is now subject to one head, even to thee; no one now opposes, no one now objects” (Romanism and the Reformation, H. Gratton Guinness, p. 37).
The same year that Cardinal Pucci arrogantly made his statement, Martin Luther sparked the Protestant Reformation by posting his “Ninety-Five Theses” on the church door in Wittenberg. Likewise, many years earlier, when King Nebuchadnezzar thought in his pride that his own hands had built and secured his kingdom, God humbled him by making him act like an animal for about a year (Daniel 4:33).
Likewise, President Obama made his declaration a month after the launch of the Elisha Ministry (April 12, 2009). Men do not have the power to overrule God, but God uses their arrogant declarations as time markers to signal the apex of their delusions as well as the end of their God-given authority.
The corrupt rule of the “Saul” church is indeed dead, but the Kingdom (“David”) is replacing it. Saul died in 1993. I now make the declaration: Babylon is dead.
