The title of this post is the same title as a book I have which is written by CJ Koster. In it, he discusses the many ways that paganism by way of Babylon has made its way into the lives of todays believers.
As I began writing this post, I was listening to an online radio show by a man who sees this completely. He warns… has been warning for years. Even to the point of receiving death threats for what he says. Yet still people do not take heed.
There are so many ways for us to “Come Out” of Babylon. The obvious ones are often preached, although less and less as time marches on. I firmly believe that following our Creator, YHVH, and His instructions, will bring us out as well as bring us much protection… including in the coming times of tribulation, which seem to be very near.
In the book of Revelation (12:17 and 14:12), those who have faith in the Messiah AND keep the commandments are singled out twice and the book closes with a similar emphasis on keeping His commands also in chapter 22 verse 14. We also know from the prophetic books of Scripture that we will be keeping His instructions during the millennium because they prophecy about people who are eating the abominations of swine and mouse and also of people keeping the Feast of Tabernacles and the New Moon.
So how do these things protect us?
First of all, we are promised blessings if we obey and curses if we do not at the initial point when the commands are given. If you read all throughout the Torah (the first five books) you will see this.
But beyond that… if we are eating only what our Creator has determined to be food, we will be protected from many diseases that come from pork, shellfish, and other unclean animals. I have also come to the conclusion that gm0 is not food. Some of it is pesticides disguised as food and some of it has unclean animals inserted into the dna. In fact, non-organic rice and a new non-organic wheat have human dna inserted into them. Do your research! This man I was listening to said that if people understood the mutagenic property of gm0, there is no way they would eat it. Did you know that if you eat gm0 c0rn ONCE it will go into your dna and your gut and become a part of you and continue to change you? I know I ingested this toxin for years before I was aware of that. I believe the only way to undo this is to repent and beg the Creator to remove this abominable organism from our bodies, for there is nothing we can do in our own power to remove it once we have allowed it in.
People will think you are paranoid, they will tell you that you are taking things too far, that you are not trusting YHVH… but I believe our Father feels very strongly about what we put into our mouth and our body. The first commandment ever broken by Eve had to do with eating. God’s people were given very specific instructions regarding what to eat. And He does not change. Why would He want us to now carelessly consume pesticides and mutagenic properties because they are cheaper, more convenient, they taste better or for any other reason?
Here is a quote from the Weston Price page
So, one area of protection will come from what we eat… or don’t eat.
Next, observing His days – Sabbath and the Feasts. I have heard from several different source in various circles that persecution will begin in todays modern churches. Those who are removing themselves from these places will be protected from this. In addition, I believe those who honor HIS days will also be protected by Him. Those who understand the Messianic meaning of His days, their fulfillment and their significance for the future will be watching and aware in ways that others are not. We are told by our Messiah that if we are awake and watching, THAT Day will not surprise us like a thief.
And the third area of protection will be from deception.
1 John 3:24-4:6 And the one guarding His commands stays in Him, and He in him. And by this we know that He stays in us, by the Spirit which He gave us. Beloved ones, do not believe every spirit, but prove the spirits, whether they are of Elohim, became many false prophets have gone out into the world. (false prophets are defined in Deuteronomy as those who teach against the commands of YHVH and whose prophecies do not come true) Every spirit that confesses that Yeshua the Messiah has come in the flesh is of Elohim, and every spirit that does not confess that Yeshua the Messiah has come in the flesh is not of Elohim. And this is the spirit of the anti-messiah which you heard is coming and now is already in the world. You are of Elohim, little children, and have overcome them, because He who is in you is greater than he who is in the world. They are of the world, therefore they speak as of the world and the world hears them. We are of Elohim – the one knowing Elohim hears us. He who is not of Elohim does not hear us. By this (who hears us and who doesn’t) we know the Spirit of the Truth and the spirit of the delusion.
2 Thessalonians 2:3-13…let no one deceive you in an way, because the falling away is to come first, and the man of lawlessness is to be revealed, the son of destruction who opposes and exalts himself above all that is called god or that is worshipped, so that he sits as god in the dwelling place of god, showing himself that he is god….and now you know what restrains, for him to be revealed in his time. For the secret of lawlessness is already at work, only until he who now restrains come out of the midst. And THEN the lawless one will be revealed, (whom the Master shall consume with the Spirit of His mouth and bring to naught with the manifestation of His coming.) The coming of, is according to the working of satan, with all power and signs and wonders of falsehood and with all deceit of unrighteousness in those perishing, because they did not receive the love of the TRUTH, in order for them to be saved. And for this reason, God sent them a working of delusion, for them to believe the falsehood, in order that all should be judged who did not believe the truth, but have delighted in the unrighteousness.
Matthew 24:12ff and because of the increase in lawlessness, the love of many shall become cold. But he who shall have endured to the end shall be saved. and this good news of the kingdom shall be proclaimed in all the world as a witness to all the nations and THEN the end shall come. So when you see the abomination that lays waste (spoken of by Daniel the prophet,) set up in the set apart place – he who reads, let him understand – THEN let those who are in Judea flee to the mountains. Let him who is on the housetop not come down to take whatever out of his house. And let him who is in the field not turn back to get his garments. and woe to those who are pregnant and to those who are nursing children in those days. And pray that your flight does not take place in winter or on the Sabbath. For then there shall be great distress such as has not been since the beginning of the world until this time, nor ever shall be. And if those days were not shortened no flesh would be saved, but for the sake of the chosen ones those days shall be shortened. If any then says to you, look here is the messiah or there, do not believe. For false messiahs and false prophets shall arise and they shall show greats signs and wonders so as to lead astray if possible even the chosen ones…
Scripture tells us that in the last days the Spirit of YHVH will be poured out in special ways, causing visions and dreams and prophecies. I believe this same Spirit will enable His people to have supernatural discernment and wisdom in all kinds of situations. Regarding who to trust, where to go, how to prepare, etc.
I hope and trust that you are mentally, emotionally and spiritually prepared for what may come. I firmly believe it is near and even knocking at the door.
