Continuing, and again today beginning with the conclusion – for those too busy in Babylon (the prevailing state of confusion) to read what may possibly be the only truth they will receive today.
The conclusion is understanding the common consciousness expressed in all the information, the power of Satan, deception convulsively being vomiting from his minions of fake light as their lying signs and wonders (the opposite of, I and the children God has given me, and our being the signs and wonders of/by His truth). It is seen, made known as they broadcast their fake information, and their “crisis of credibility” is self-manifested more clearly than ever – confirmed in their repeated pattern of deception as they accuse others of what they themselves, with reflexive consistency, prove while self-destructing before the eyes of the world. AND, the only ones that doesn’t see it are those engaged in it – that my friends is the definition of hubris – pride, arrogance and being wise in their own conceit.
Of course, the name Babylon is telling of the state of confusion ruling in the blinded minds of those controlling all the false information, and those still manipulated by it into doing the will of the those spewing it. We also know this refers to all those in the fake news media (led by the New York Times and the Washington Post), then in all the outlets, which take their vomit, eat it and vomit it out again hoping all will join in their feast.
Their paradox is in using deception in a feckless attempt to overcome what is overcoming them, and this itself displaying a totally underdeveloped mind, lacking the mental acuity that distinguishes man from the lesser beasts. They in their lack of ability to affect and overcome their situation again prove their degeneration away from the higher mental function of evaluating reality and altering and correcting the flawed perception/ideas causing their problem, and in doing enable themselves to solve it. They are their own problem, and deception is the root cause. They will never find the solution they seek because their deeds are evil, and they choose to remain in its darkness, even after seeing the light.
And of course, Babylon, confusion, also rules in the false church, also led by false teachers and prophets who create fiction as their means of manipulating weak minds. They and those they mislead are for the same above stated reasons ever unable to differentiate between hyperbole and the reality it is meant to clarify.
2 Peter 3
13 Nevertheless we, according to his promise, look for new heavens and a new earth, wherein dwells righteousness.
14 Wherefore, beloved, seeing that you look for such things, be diligent that you may be found of him in peace, without spot, and blameless.
15 And account that the longsuffering of our LORD is salvation; even as our beloved brother Paul also according to the wisdom given unto him has written unto you;
16 As also in all his epistles, speaking in them of these things; in which are some things hard to be understood, which they that are unlearned and unstable wrest, as they do also the other scriptures, unto their own destruction.
17 You therefore, beloved, seeing you know these things before, beware lest you also, being led away with the error of the wicked, fall from your own steadfastness.
18 But grow in grace, and in the knowledge of our LORD and Savior Jesus Christ. To him be glory both now and for ever. Amen.
In prior posts we’ve been discussing God’s wrath against these enemies of truth coming in the form of His people seeing/understanding it and glorifying God for His showing us the light. This glory is then seen in us, and we Glorify Him for leading us out of Babylon, as He and we come out of the swelling of the Jordan (the pride of death and the dead) as a lion against the proud.
28 The voice of them that flee and escape out of the land of Babylon, to declare in Zion the vengeance of the LORD our God, the vengeance of his temple.
29 Call together the archers against Babylon: all you that bend the bow, camp against it round about; let none thereof escape: recompense her according to her work; according to all that she has done, do unto her: for she has been proud against the LORD, against the Holy One of Israel.
30 Therefore shall her young men fall in the streets, and all her men of war shall be cut off in that day, says the LORD.
31 Behold, I am against you, O you most proud, says the LORD God of hosts: for your day is come, the time that I will visit you.
32 And the most proud shall stumble and fall, and none shall raise him up: and I will kindle a fire in his cities, and it shall devour all round about him.
33 Thus says the LORD of hosts; The children of Israel and the children of Judah were oppressed together: and all that took them captives held them fast; they refused to let them go.
34 Their Redeemer is strong; the LORD of hosts is his name: he shall thoroughly plead their cause, that he may give rest to the land, and disquiet the inhabitants of Babylon.
35 A sword is upon the Chaldeans, says the LORD, and upon the inhabitants of Babylon, and upon her princes, and upon her wise men.
36 A sword is upon the liars; and they shall dote: a sword is upon her mighty men; and they shall be dismayed.
37 A sword is upon their horses, and upon their chariots, and upon all the mingled people that are in the midst of her; and they shall become as women: a sword is upon her treasures; and they shall be robbed.
38 A drought is upon her waters; and they shall be dried up: for it is the land of graven images, and they are mad upon their idols.
39 Therefore the wild beasts of the desert with the wild beasts of the islands shall dwell there, and the owls shall dwell therein: and it shall be no more inhabited for ever; neither shall it be dwelt in from generation to generation.
40 As God overthrew Sodom and Gomorrah and the neighbor cities thereof, says the LORD; so shall no man abide there, neither shall any son of man dwell therein.
41 Behold, a people shall come from the north, and a great nation, and many kings shall be raised up from the coasts of the earth.
42 They shall hold the bow and the lance: they are cruel, and will not shew mercy: their voice shall roar like the sea, and they shall ride upon horses, every one put in array, like a man to the battle, against you, O daughter of Babylon.
43 The king of Babylon has heard the report of them, and his hands waxed feeble: anguish took hold of him, and pangs as of a woman in travail.
44 Behold, he shall come up like a lion from the swelling of Jordan unto the habitation of the strong: but I will make them suddenly run away from her: and who is a chosen man, that I may appoint over her? for who is like me? and who will appoint me the time? and who is that shepherd that will stand before me?
45 Therefore hear you the counsel of the LORD, that he has taken against Babylon; and his purposes, that he has purposed against the land of the Chaldeans: Surely the least of the flock shall draw them out: surely he shall make their habitation desolate with them.
46 At the noise of the taking of Babylon the earth is moved, and the cry is heard among the nations.
1 By the rivers of Babylon, there we sat down, yea, we wept, when we remembered Zion.
2 We hanged our harps upon the willows in the midst thereof.
3 For there they that carried us away captive required of us a song; and they that wasted us required of us mirth, saying, Sing us one of the songs of Zion.
4 How shall we sing the LORD’s song in a strange land?
5 If I forget you, O Jerusalem, let my right hand forget her cunning.
6 If I do not remember you, let my tongue cleave to the roof of my mouth; if I prefer not Jerusalem above my chief joy.
7 Remember, O LORD, the children of Edom [these false accuser and attackers defined as the evil brother among us, and by doing so having sold their birthright for morsels of meat] in the day of Jerusalem [our city of peace]; who said, Raze it, raze it, even to the foundation thereof [its foundation the teaching of the LORD, and His commandments].
8 O daughter of Babylon, who are to be destroyed; happy shall he be, that rewards you as you have served us.
9 Happy shall he be, that taketh and dashes your little ones against the stones.
1 Praise you the LORD. Sing unto the LORD a new song, and his praise in the congregation of saints.
2 Let Israel rejoice in him that made him: let the children of Zion be joyful in their King.
3 Let them praise his name in the dance: let them sing praises unto him with the timbrel and harp.
4 For the LORD taketh pleasure in his people: he will beautify the meek with salvation.
5 Let the saints be joyful in glory: let them sing aloud upon their beds.
6 Let the high praises of God be in their mouth, and a two-edged sword in their hand;
7 To execute vengeance upon the heathen, and punishments upon the people;
8 To bind their kings with chains, and their nobles with fetters of iron;
9 To execute upon them the judgment written: this honour have all his saints. Praise you the LORD.
