The Spiritual War To Silence Babylon, Our Woldly Churches
I believe that the bible calls God seekers to stand in the Gap with Jesus rebuilding the wall of righteousness Standing In The Gap; to rule on earth with Christ using his power to crush the clay pots, leaders who scoff at the power of their creator Ruling With Christ . We are to identify and reject the teachers of the law who refuse Jesus’ foot washing example Jesus Foot Washing Example, who refuse to go after the one lost sheep while they lord over their presumably healthy 99 Are You In Christ’s Sheepfold?.
What is really going on here? These blind guides and their blind followers have a perverted concept of God and righteousness. Neither group is plugged into the vine, into Christ. They are Presumer – Performers who play today’s church game. None of their 99 followers can be considered sheep. They are at best baby lambs, unable to teach, not knowing the difference between right and wrong, between good and evil Spiritual Maturity.
But take a look, the bible promises that Babylon will be silenced. I believe that God would have already accomplished this if his followers had fully embraced their roles; if we were truly living in Christ.
A Message for the Exiles
NLT Jer 51:45 “Come out, my people, flee from Babylon. Save yourselves! Run from the LORD’s fierce anger. …54 “Listen! Hear the cry of Babylon, the sound of great destruction from the land of the Babylonians. 55 For the LORD is destroying Babylon. He will silence her loud voice. Waves of enemies pound against her; the noise of battle rings through the city.
The Lord has already destroyed Babylon. She is fallen, but she has not yet lost her loud voice. God has not yet silenced her. I believe that God needs us to do our part. Is 9 helps us to see our part in this. I believe that Isaiah is talking directly to us, to God’s true seekers.
Breaking Babylon’s Rod – Hope in the Messiah
NLT Is 9:1 Nevertheless, that time of darkness and despair will not go on forever. The land of Zebulun and Naphtali[2 of israel’s tribes – where Gideon’s army came from] will be humbled, but there will be a time in the future when Galilee[upland plain among the mountains of Naphtali upper Galilee – old Galilee inhabited by gentiles] of the Gentiles[non Jews], which lies along the road that runs between the Jordan and the sea, will be filled with glory. 2 The people who walk in darkness will see a great light. For those who live in a land of deep darkness, a light will shine. 3 You will enlarge the nation of Israel, and its people will rejoice. They will rejoice before you as people rejoice at the harvest and like warriors dividing the plunder. 4 For you[not he] will break the yoke of their slavery and lift the heavy burden from their shoulders. You will break the oppressor’s rod, just as you did when you destroyed the army of Midian[Gideon’s army of 300; the brave[the unafraid] and the cupped hand drinkers[MHCC say the river gulpers represent the prideful who work against God] with their ram’s horn, crushed clay jars and torches defeat the Midianites. God used their obedience & trust. They brought the hand of the Lord to action. Judges 7:1-25]. 5 The boots of the warrior and the uniforms bloodstained by war will all be burned. They will be fuel for the fire. 6 For a child is born to us, a son is given to us. The government will rest on his shoulders. And he will be called: Wonderful Counselor, Mighty God, Everlasting Father, Prince of Peace. 7 His government and its peace will never end. He will rule with fairness and justice from the throne of his ancestor David for all eternity. The passionate commitment of the LORD of Heaven’s Armies will make this happen!
If we are truly ruling with Christ turning from evil to hear and follow God we will help break the yoke of Babylon’s slavery and lift the heavy burdens she places on her followers by breaking the priest class oppressor’s rod. Gideon is our example here. He defeated the Midianites by hearing and following the direction of the Lord. By faith, not fearing or being prideful or selfish, he and his 300 men brought the the Lord to action – and then Lord defeated the Midianitesl
Today’s priest class is the oppressor. Their rod is the many false doctrines of today’s churches.
The covering doctrine.
The tithing doctrine,
The doctrines of Baal and Balaam, priests expecting money,
The clergy laity doctrine of the abomination
Their False Righteousness still living in the world.
AMP Dan 2:31You, O king, saw, and behold, [there was] a great image. This image which was mighty and of exceedingly great brightness stood before you, and the appearance of it was frightening and terrible.
32As for this image, its head was of fine gold, its breast and its arms of silver, its belly and its thighs of bronze,
33Its legs of iron, its feet partly of iron and partly of clay [the baked clay of the potter].[their weakness is in their clay feet – their foundation? Their false gospel – NKJV Eph 6:15 and having shod your feet with the preparation of the gospel of peace;my add]
34As you looked, a Stone was cut out without human hands, which smote the image on its feet of iron and [baked] clay [of the potter] and broke them to pieces.
35Then the iron, the [baked] clay [of the potter], the bronze, the silver, and the gold were broken and crushed together and became like the chaff of the summer threshing floors, and the wind carried them away so that not a trace of them could be found. And the Stone that smote the image became a great mountain or rock and filled the whole earth.
36This was the dream, and we will tell the interpretation of it to the king.
Could this stone being cut without human hands, defeating the people striking their clay feet be Christ? Is he telling us how they will be crushed?
The passages say that we are to Crush them with our Shepherds clubs. Could this foot crushing stone be the prayers of the 144,000 to protect the sheep from the beasts. The two witness bring fire from heaven:
KJV Rev 11:3And I will give power unto my two witnesses, and they shall prophesy a thousand two hundred and threescore days, clothed in sackcloth.
4These are the two olive trees, and the two candlesticks standing before the God of the earth.
5And if any man will hurt them, fire proceedeth out of their mouth, and devoureth their enemies: and if any man will hurt them, he must in this manner be killed.
6These have power to shut heaven, that it rain not in the days of their prophecy: and have power over waters to turn them to blood, and to smite the earth with all plagues, as often as they will.
7And when they shall have finished their testimony, the beast that ascendeth out of the bottomless pit shall make war against them, and shall overcome them, and kill them.
8And 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.
9And they of the people and kindreds and tongues and nations shall see their dead bodies three days and an half, and shall not suffer their dead bodies to be put in graves.
10And they that dwell upon the earth shall rejoice over them, and make merry, and shall send gifts one to another; because these two prophets tormented them that dwelt on the earth.
11And after three days and an half the spirit of life from God entered into them, and they stood upon their feet; and great fear fell upon them which saw them.
12And they heard a great voice from heaven saying unto them, Come up hither. And they ascended up to heaven in a cloud; and their enemies beheld them.
13And the same hour was there a great earthquake, and the tenth part of the city fell, and in the earthquake were slain of men seven thousand: and the remnant were affrighted, and gave glory to the God of heaven.
So the two witnesses can call down fire down from heaven [trials] that devour their enemies: all who try to hurt them will be killed in this manner.
I think the having the power to shut heaven, is talking about the ability to cut these false shepherds off from the Holy Spirit, so that these false teachers can no longer play the role of the hypocrite, leading and controlling their followers. If we are all praying that no rain should fall in Babylon, perhaps the water might turn to blood. The witnesses also have the power to smite the earth[holy lands, true seekers] with all plagues, as often as they will.
If we are the two witnesses, we can call down the Spiritual drought that is necessary to destroy Babylon, We can live in the power of God, crushing clay pots, these false prophets and teachers, with the power that Christ has endowed us!!!
I think that we are to first reach out to these men as brothers[2 Tim 2], but if they turn on us and attack we will be protected.
KJV 2 Tim 2:22Flee also youthful lusts: but follow righteousness, faith, charity, peace, with them that call on the Lord out of a pure heart.
23But foolish and unlearned questions avoid, knowing that they do gender strifes.
24And the servant of the Lord must not strive; but be gentle unto all men, apt to teach, patient,
25In meekness instructing those that oppose themselves[the truth]; if God peradventure will give them repentance to the acknowledging of the truth;
26And that they may recover themselves out of the snare of the devil, who are taken captive by him at his will.
We need to meekly gently instruct those who are in the snare of the Devil, praying that God would give them true repentance so that they can recover themselves, and humbly come to God.
I’m suspecting that when we humbly instruct these folks they will try to hurt us and that will bring down God’s fire from Heaven to kill them. [Rev 11:5] I think that if we see these folks refusing to change we should pray that they have a drought
Lets take another look at 2 Tim 2:18 in the NLT
18 They have left the path of truth, claiming that the resurrection of the dead has already occurred; in this way, they have turned some people away from the faith. 19 But God’s truth stands firm like a foundation stone with this inscription: “The LORD knows those who are his,” and “All who belong to the LORD must turn away from evil.” 20 In a wealthy home some utensils are made of gold and silver, and some are made of wood and clay. The expensive utensils are used for special occasions, and the cheap ones are for everyday use. 21 If you keep yourself pure, you will be a special utensil for honorable use. Your life will be clean, and you will be ready for the Master to use you for every good work. 22 Run from anything that stimulates youthful lusts. Instead, pursue righteous living, faithfulness, love, and peace. Enjoy the companionship of those who call on the Lord with pure hearts. 23 Again I say, don’t get involved in foolish, ignorant arguments that only start fights. 24 A servant of the Lord must not quarrel but must be kind to everyone, be able to teach, and be patient with difficult people…
Please help us to stand in the gap with you, to rebuild your wall of righteousness, to re-establish the fence Jesus placed around your sheepfold, the volunteer shepherd. Deliver us from evil, from the abomination, from the beasts who presume to speak for you.
Deliver us from the lusts of the flesh, and those who pretend to turn from worldliness to service, In Jesus Mighty Name We Pray, Amen.
