The Fall of Babylon

Seventh Thunder May 31, 2020
Before I begin with this topic, there's two things I want to knock out of the way first. The first thing being, that the Lord God is Jesus Christ. The Lord, not the 'Father', the Lord God.

Mark 2:28 Therefore the Son of man is Lord also of the sabbath. (Meaning, he is the 'Lord of Peace)

'Saul of Tarsus' who was Greek, once the most zealous of the 'Jewish' religion realised this in no short measure. Jesus's name was actually 'Yahushua', which translates as the 'Lord saves', or 'Yahweh is Salvation' and of course, Yahweh is the same as the Lord. Incidentally, the word Jew is a relatively recent term, and comes from the meaning 'The people of Judah'. aka the Yehudah.

Galatians 1:11-14 But I certify you, brethren, that the gospel which was preached of me is not after man. For I neither received it of man, neither was I taught it, but by the revelation of Jesus Christ. For ye have heard of my conversation in time past in the Jews' religion, how that beyond measure I persecuted the church of God, and wasted it: (The Ekklesia in the original 'Greek' scripture, meaning those called out by God) And profited in the Jews' religion above many my equals in mine own nation, being more exceedingly zealous of the traditions of my fathers.

The word Yahuwdeans, alludes to the followers of Judaism, and that is the religion of that region which 'Saul of Tarsus' was a convert to, of which he had his internal conversation with, when he used to persecute the Ekklesia. (Meaning to say, that was the religion he was 'Marked' by until he was converted into the ways of the spirit, by the direct intervention of the 'Lord Jesus' below)

Acts 9:4-7 And he fell to the earth, and heard a voice saying unto him, Saul, Saul, why persecutest thou me? And he said, Who art thou, Lord? And the Lord said, I am Jesus whom thou persecutest: it is hard for thee to kick against the pricks. And he trembling and astonished said, Lord, what wilt thou have me to do? And the Lord said unto him, Arise, and go into the city, and it shall be told thee what thou must do. And the men which journeyed with him stood speechless, hearing a voice, but seeing no man.

Kicking against the pricks, basically means to hurt yourself by persisting in useless resistance or protest, something that is all too common with those conformed to this world.

Psalm 56:4 In God I will praise his word, in God I have put my trust; I will not fear what flesh can do unto me.

Injustice is common function of 'Hell', that's just how it is in a world of both good and evil, and people specifically forget that they're here because of their injustice towards others, and their own unrighteous thoughts and behaviours.

Psalm 109:3 They compassed me about also with words of hatred; and fought against me without a cause.

Was the experience of Jesus in the flesh just? As he said himself, he was tried in the fire.

Revelation 3:18 I counsel thee to buy of me gold tried in the fire, that thou mayest be rich; and white raiment, that thou mayest be clothed, and that the shame of thy nakedness do not appear; and anoint thine eyes with eyesalve, that thou mayest see.

Think not that it isn't the same for all of us. Only the old talked of the persecution of Jesus himself in the flesh, the new refers to the persecution we all face in the spirit. As I keep telling people, do not take the very image of things written in the 'Old Testament'.

Hebrews 10:1 For the law having a shadow of good things to come, and not the very image of the things, can never with those sacrifices which they offered year by year continually make the comers thereunto perfect.

This has to be grasped, especially since it is one of those seven seals that is on the book, and that book is the 'Old Testament'. Without the understanding of that, then the scriptures cannot be fully understood.

Luke 24:45 Then opened he their understanding, that they might understand the scriptures,

So, when it is said, anoint thine eyes, it is meant, anoint thy mind, with that oil of gladness, that will open your understanding to the things of the spirit, contained within the scriptures.

Psalm 45:7 Thou lovest righteousness, and hatest wickedness: therefore God, thy God, hath anointed thee with the oil of gladness above thy fellows.

Just believing in Jesus will not help any man escape the tribulations of the flesh, since work has to be done, and much has to be prepared first.

Psalm 10:17 Lord, thou hast heard the desire of the humble: thou wilt prepare their heart, thou wilt cause thine ear to hear:

The goal is to prepare all people so that they're fit for heaven, so all will be tried, until the price has been paid, and when people are ready to hear, then they will hear, and not before they're ready.

Matthew 18:7-9 Woe unto the world because of offences! for it must needs be that offences come; but woe to that man by whom the offence cometh! Wherefore if thy hand or thy foot offend thee, cut them off, and cast them from thee: it is better for thee to enter into life halt or maimed, rather than having two hands or two feet to be cast into everlasting fire. (Remember where Jesus was tried) And if thine eye offend thee, pluck it out, and cast it from thee: it is better for thee to enter into life with one eye, rather than having two eyes to be cast into hell fire.

People know not what they do, and so because of that, people do what they do.

John 2:24-25 But Jesus did not commit himself unto them, because he knew all men, And needed not that any should testify of man: for he knew what was in man.

Simply, know what you do, by knowing what is in a man, and then you won't do as they do, nor judge them for it.

Luke 23:34 Then said Jesus, Father, forgive them; for they know not what they do. And they parted his raiment, and cast lots.

And if you find something within your heart that you don't like, simply cut it off, by turning within to the 'Father' and asking for help, asking for forgiveness. This is what the above is basically saying, as per usual, in a parable. Forgiveness cannot come from the world alone, and it cannot be achieved alone. Remember, these things are about what affects the mind. So, rarely is a thieves only sin stealing, there's normally something that has lead to that behaviour, something which they have failed to pluck out. Basically, they have a thorn in their side, which has polluted the whole.

John 5:14 Afterward Jesus findeth him in the temple, and said unto him, Behold, thou art made whole: sin no more, lest a worse thing come unto thee. (Are people sure they're saved from their sins, just by their mere belief in a literal name?)

Frankly, it is impossible to truly forgive something if you don't understand the source of their corruption. It will be just lip service, and whatever has offended you will eat you up, only to later manifest in life, in another potentially more damaging fashion, often repeatedly, and even physically, and more often than not depending on an individual's spiritual progress, in another life altogether.

2 Chronicles 7:14 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.

The suppression of emotion is more damaging than people realise, so seek to heal any damaging feelings within oneself, within that land, which is your mind, so that there's peace once again within it.

Numbers 33:55 But if ye will not drive out the inhabitants of the land from before you; then it shall come to pass, that those which ye let remain of them shall be pricks in your eyes, and thorns in your sides, and shall vex you in the land wherein ye dwell.

As said, those thorns in the side must be plucked out and cast into the fire if it offends you, lest that fire utterly consumes you, or to better put it, that thorn's infection spreads within you, consuming your whole being.

John 18:36 Jesus answered, My kingdom is not of this world: if my kingdom were of this world, then would my servants fight, that I should not be delivered to the Jews: but now is my kingdom not from hence.

In fact, you'll find that if you cease from your mental and emotional participation in the 'dramas' of the world, you'll have more peace, and peace increases peace. Ultimately, you can decide to either try save the world in vain, or work to save yourself and others from it, by spreading the 'Gospel of the Kingdom' which doesn't just come from just parroting the Bible, but by following the instructions of Jesus in it. In short, turn first to the 'Father' in the spirit, and have all things added, meaning to say, revealed to the mind.

James 1:26-27 If any man among you seem to be religious, and bridleth not his tongue, but deceiveth his own heart, this man's religion is vain. Pure religion and undefiled before God and the Father is this, To visit the fatherless and widows in their affliction, and to keep himself unspotted from the world.

Because many people run their mouths about the coming and goings of this world, professing themselves to be wise and knowledgeable. The philosophers, the intellectuals, the commentators, the religious and spiritual and those obsessed with politics on both sides of the spectrum. This is their world, and they'll be coming back to it, because simply, they're conformed to it and their minds are polluted by it, and so, their minds remain dead, lost in their lusts of life. And such will hate the knowledge of the true life, because it is so far off them, they aren't even capable of comprehending it.

John 7:7 The world cannot hate you; but me it hateth, (What he taught, not the man himself, and those that love him in this day, know nothing of him, hence their obsession with the name that he used to have in the flesh) because I testify of it, that the works thereof are evil.

The second thing, is that considering that Jesus can make himself known to who he seems fit at anytime, why is it that people expect a second coming in the flesh? Basically, the way Jesus made himself known to Saul, is the same why he appeared to his 'Prophets' in the 'Old Testament', only then he wasn't straight in his ways, meaning to say only good, because he was both good and evil as the Lord God back then.

Luke 3:4 As it is written in the book of the words of Esaias the prophet, saying, The voice of one crying in the wilderness, Prepare ye the way of the Lord, make his paths straight.

And of course while Jesus was here in the flesh, those appearances by the Lord God suddenly stopped. It really shouldn't take a genius to work out why, since it's clearly mentioned in the 'New Testament'.

Acts 2:36 Therefore let all the house of Israel know assuredly, that God hath made the same Jesus, whom ye have crucified, both Lord and Christ.

And as people can read below, Jesus, and the Lord are also the 'Holy Spirit', which is the 'Father's' word. But as the 'Lord God' he negated his 'Father's' law and followed after his own.

2 Corinthians 3:14-17 But their minds were blinded: for until this day remaineth the same vail untaken away in the reading of the old testament; which vail is done away in Christ. But even unto this day, when Moses is read, the vail is upon their heart. Nevertheless when it shall turn to the Lord, the vail shall be taken away. Now the Lord is that Spirit: and where the Spirit of the Lord is, there is liberty.

And of course when Jesus was finally sent into the flesh, he was the 'Word made flesh'.

John 1:14 And the Word was made flesh, and dwelt among us, (and we beheld his glory, the glory as of the only begotten of the Father,) full of grace and truth.

It is quite simple to understand, but religion loses people when it comes to understanding these things, because they're rich in their own knowledge and puffed up in pride, and the same knowledge has become a stumbling block, like a flaming sword that turns every which way, blocking the path to the 'Tree of Life', devouring all knowledge of the spirit and righteousness, and putting in its place, the knowledge of the flesh and man's own self righteousness. Which is spoken of below in a parable, a similitude, an allegory.

Revelation 2:14 But I have a few things against thee, because thou hast there them that hold the doctrine of Balaam, (which means to devour) who taught Balac to cast a stumblingblock before the children of Israel, to eat things sacrificed unto idols, and to commit fornication.

As written, the same knowledge people use to condemn others will also condemn themselves.

Job 4:8 Even as I have seen, they that plow iniquity, and sow wickedness, reap the same.

So, Jesus had to go away so that he could blow out that flaming sword with his breath of knowledge, that knowledge of the spirit in a man, which helps put out that cycle of sin.

John 16:7-15 Nevertheless I tell you the truth; It is expedient for you that I go away: for if I go not away, the Comforter will not come unto you; but if I depart, I will send him unto you. And when he is come, he will reprove the world of sin, and of righteousness, and of judgment: Of sin, because they believe not on me; Of righteousness, because I go to my Father, and ye see me no more; Of judgment, because the prince of this world is judged. I have yet many things to say unto you, but ye cannot bear them now. Howbeit when he, the Spirit of truth, is come, he will guide you into all truth: for he shall not speak of himself; but whatsoever he shall hear, that shall he speak: and he will shew you things to come. He shall glorify me: for he shall receive of mine, and shall shew it unto you. All things that the Father hath are mine: therefore said I, that he shall take of mine, and shall shew it unto you.

Does the above sound like a religion to you? The world can receive religion, and the words of the people that belong to them, let's put it that way, and those people certainly don't last forever, nor are they unseen.

John 14:16-18 And I will pray the Father, and he shall give you another Comforter, that he may abide with you for ever; Even the Spirit of truth; whom the world cannot receive, because it seeth him not, neither knoweth him: but ye know him; for he dwelleth with you, and shall be in you. I will not leave you comfortless: I will come to you.

Now, with that out of the way, the 'Old Testament' largely talks about the events of the times in various places mentioned throughout the book. Israel, Jerusalem, Egypt, Lebanon, Judah, Sodom, and Babylon are prime examples.

Jeremiah 31:31-33 Behold, the days come, saith the Lord, that I will make a new covenant with the house of Israel, and with the house of Judah: Not according to the covenant that I made with their fathers in the day that I took them by the hand to bring them out of the land of Egypt; which my covenant they brake, although I was an husband unto them, saith the Lord: But this shall be the covenant that I will make with the house of Israel; After those days, saith the Lord, I will put my law in their inward parts, and write it in their hearts; and will be their God, and they shall be my people.

The 'Old Testament' however only talks of the things of the flesh, hence why a 'New Testament' was needed, as again clearly prophesied above, and clearly realised by Jesus's 'Apostles' below. Strangely, it seems that it was only they that realised that Jesus was 'Lord' Why?.

1 Corinthians 12:3 Wherefore I give you to understand, that no man speaking by the Spirit of God calleth Jesus accursed: and that no man can say that Jesus is the Lord, but by the Holy Ghost.

Because they have received the 'Holy Spirit', to teach them that. Of course anyone can say it, but few can realise it, because most falsely assume that Jesus is the 'Father', and thus assume that the 'Father' is the Lord God. This is what happens when you're taught of man, and not by the spirit. In short, commit spiritual fornication.

Hebrews 8:7-13 For if that first covenant had been faultless, then should no place have been sought for the second. For finding fault with them, he saith, Behold, the days come, saith the Lord, when I will make a new covenant with the house of Israel and with the house of Judah: Not according to the covenant that I made with their fathers in the day when I took them by the hand to lead them out of the land of Egypt; because they continued not in my covenant, and I regarded them not, saith the Lord. For this is the covenant that I will make with the house of Israel after those days, saith the Lord; I will put my laws into their mind, and write them in their hearts: and I will be to them a God, and they shall be to me a people: And they shall not teach every man his neighbour, and every man his brother, saying, Know the Lord: for all shall know me, from the least to the greatest. For I will be merciful to their unrighteousness, and their sins and their iniquities will I remember no more. In that he saith, A new covenant, he hath made the first old. Now that which decayeth and waxeth old is ready to vanish away.

And it is needed because the lessons of the spirit and teachings of Jesus about the spirit are used to unlock the 'Mysteries' contained within the 'Old Testament, that good treasure, given to someone who has mastered their own house.

Matthew 13:52 Then said he unto them, Therefore every scribe which is instructed unto the kingdom of heaven is like unto a man that is an householder, which bringeth forth out of his treasure things new and old.

Alone, neither the 'Old Testament nor the 'New Testament' can make the knowledge and the understanding of the 'Kingdom' perfect in the minds and hearts of the believers of them. The mansion will be unprepared for its inhabitant, and fall into ruin, especially if people look to man and their religions to develop it.

John 14:2-6 In my Father's house are many mansions: if it were not so, I would have told you. I go to prepare a place for you. And if I go and prepare a place for you, I will come again, and receive you unto myself; that where I am, (In the spirit) there ye may be also. And whither I go ye know, and the way ye know. Thomas saith unto him, Lord, we know not whither thou goest; and how can we know the way? Jesus saith unto him, I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me.

There will be significant gaps in the people's understanding if they're not both applied and used in conjunction with each other, using those keys of hell and death that Jesus brought. And only 'Father' can teach a man how to do that through his 'Holy Spirit'.

1 Corinthians 14:2 For he that speaketh in an unknown tongue speaketh not unto men, but unto God: for no man understandeth him; howbeit in the spirit he speaketh mysteries.

All religions talk about the soul thinking that it the same as the spirit, but no religion or spiritual practice of the earth teaches man how to use their spirit.

1 Corinthians 15:45 And so it is written, The first man Adam was made a living soul; the last Adam was made a quickening spirit.

Why, because few can tell the difference between their own spirit and their soul, and because of that the soul and spirit are in a coagulation, so to speak, merged together. And while they're merged, then the spirit is dead to the knowledge of itself, and the true thoughts and intentions of the heart that rules over it, and so, the living soul, the first Adam remains in control. The works of the soul are continuous, whether awake or asleep. So, to begin the process of overcoming the soul and its world, then it needs to be silenced, so that the spirit can be at rest from its works.

Hebrews 4:10-12 For he that is entered into his rest, he also hath ceased from his own works, as God did from his. Let us labour therefore to enter into that rest, lest any man fall after the same example of unbelief. For the word of God is quick, and powerful, and sharper than any twoedged sword, piercing even to the dividing asunder of soul and spirit, and of the joints and marrow, and is a discerner of the thoughts and intents of the heart.

The 'Old Testament' in many places talks of the 'Fall of Babylon' meaning to say, the destruction of the works of the soul. It is the 'Word of God' that helps bring to an end this usurpers rule over the mind of man. But again, this mystery is hidden and sealed behind, similitudes, parables, allegories and proverbs, which is why a new way of perceiving the scriptures is needed, from the view of the quickening spirit.

Revelation 14:3 And they sung as it were a new song before the throne, and before the four beasts, (The four Gospels are beasts, because the 'Gospels weren't written by John, Luke, Matthew and John, but are actually gatherings of eyewitness accounts and oral passing downs of what Jesus said and did, collected into four different texts, those eye witnesses include all of the disciples mind you. Also keep in mind whole books have been removed from the Bible, not to mention passages added, so, remember what was said about adding and taking away from the book and receiving the plagues of the book. So, seek the spirit first so that you aren't polluted from the plagues of the book) and the elders: (The twenty four books of the 'Jewish' Old Testament) and no man could learn that song but the hundred and forty and four thousand, (Anyone can read the book, hence why 4 billion religious people in the world are influenced by it) which were redeemed from the earth.

So, in short, people have to forsake what they have learnt, and start again, and become like little children, willing to learn from the start about the spirit. First receiving that spiritual milk, then being made ready to receive that spiritual meat.

1 Corinthians 10:1-6 Moreover, brethren, I would not that ye should be ignorant, how that all our fathers were under the cloud, and all passed through the sea; And were all baptized unto Moses in the cloud and in the sea; And did all eat the same spiritual meat; And did all drink the same spiritual drink: for they drank of that spiritual Rock that followed them: and that Rock was Christ. (The Lord God) But with many of them God was not well pleased: for they were overthrown in the wilderness. Now these things were our examples, to the intent we should not lust after evil things, as they also lusted.

Basically, people have to follow the core of what Jesus taught, (Seeking FIRST the 'Kingdom of God') and write their own 'Gospel of Truth' with all the things that have been added and revealed to the mind from implementing that instruction, which is the understanding given from the 'Father', those 'revelations' that transforms and converts the mind. As I've said before, that is the 'Rock of Revelation', not Peter, who first received that 'Rock', hence Jesus changing his name from Simon, to Peter.

Matthew 24:14 And this gospel of the kingdom shall be preached in all the world for a witness unto all nations; and then shall the end come.

Very few can learn this new song, very few, since only the 'Father' can teach it, even worse, fewer still can grasp what really 'Entering in thy closet, in that secret place' really means. Remember, the Gospel of the Kingdom is what you have received from seeking the 'Kingdom of God'. That is the knowledge that should be given to those poor in the knowledge of the spirit, and that is preaching the 'Gospel'.

Matthew 6:6 But thou, when thou prayest, enter into thy closet, and when thou hast shut thy door, pray to thy Father which is in secret; and thy Father which seeth in secret shall reward thee openly.

The world has people literally doing that in the flesh, in literal buildings, calling a literal man the 'Father', who is hidden in a literal closet. Keep in mind, these are the same people who used to believe that the world was flat, and would still do if not for external evidence proving otherwise. It's just that in this case, people will need internal evidence to prove these things, evidence given by the 'Holy Ghost'.

1 Corinthians 6:19 What? know ye not that your body is the temple of the Holy Ghost which is in you, which ye have of God, and ye are not your own?

But instead of doing that in the temple that is the body, and within the closet, which is that secret place of the spirit, and seeking the 'Father' in the spirit in secret, people worship God in the flesh. What I'm saying is, is that it is not good to rely on the 'New Testament' alone, certainly not before the mind has been renewed. Which will enable the mind to perceive the words of the spirit in the 'Old Testament', and pick out the falsehoods in the 'New Testament', which to be honest is corrupt beyond measure, especially in translations that have come after the 'King James Version' of the Bible. Difference is, I know what to look for within it.

Do all of you not see or perceive, observe or witness, know or experience, recognise or respect, understand or take note of, comprehend or discern, pay attention to or discover, notice or examine, inspect or behold that concerning this, all of you are and exist as the Sacred Place and Temple of God, and that the Spirit of God dwells and lives, inhabits and resides, abides and is situated within and inside all of you? If and whether some certain person corrupts and destroys, depraves and spoils, ruins and vitiates, seduces and leads astray the Sacred Place and Temple of God, God, Himself will corrupt and destroy, deprave and spoil, ruin and vitiate, punish and cause that person to perish. For the reason that the Sacred Place and Temple of God is and exists as set-apart and cleansed, which and what is and exists as all of you.

The above is probably the closest translation to the original words of 'Saul of Tarsus' in 1 Corinthians translated from Greek. And throughout the ages the words of the Bible have been edited (sometimes for the better) because Saul could ramble a bit, and wasn't the best diplomat.

Paul, called and invited, welcomed, summoned and appointed as a delegate and emissary, teacher and ambassador, messenger and a person who is sent forth with the orders of Messiah Yahushua, through the means of and on the grounds of, on account of and for the reason of, on the basis of and because of the result of the will and purpose, desire and choice, mind and wish, purposeful intent and decision, gracious disposition and good pleasure, decree and law, precept and inclination of God, and fellow brother Sosthenes to the called out Ekklesia, assembly and congregation of God that is and exists in Corinth, to those who have been sanctified, cleansed and set-apart in, by and with Messiah Yahushua, called and invited, welcomed, summoned and appointed as set-apart and cleansed ones together with all of those, individually and collectively, who, in, by and with every individual and collective place and space, spot and location, district and territory, region and land invokes and appeals to, summons and calls upon the name and title, character and person, reputation and authority of Yahushua the Anointed Messiah, our Sovereign Master – both theirs and ours. 

However, when it comes to the details, they have been edited, sometimes for the worst, as the above also shows, just compare it to the beginning of 1 Corinthians, and see what has been added, and what has been taken away. Yes, that word 'Church' has been added, and the word 'Ekklesia' has been taken away.

The above is a handy site, if you desire to see some of those mistranslations. However, it is not important, but if you're the scholarly type, it might be of some interest.

1 Corinthians 2:13-15 Which things also we speak, not in the words which man's wisdom teacheth, but which the Holy Ghost teacheth; comparing spiritual things with spiritual. But the natural man receiveth not the things of the Spirit of God: for they are foolishness unto him: neither can he know them, because they are spiritually discerned. But he that is spiritual judgeth all things, yet he himself is judged of no man.

Some of the editing of the 'New Testament', which to be honest can be more direct and express the point clearer at times, are often wildly different. The above scripture is a translation and edit of what's below, which I use here as an example of that.

But nevertheless, the natural and soul-like, worldly and unspiritual man and human beings does not welcome or embrace, favourably accept or receive, take or grasp, approve of or endure the things of the Spirit of God, for the reason that it is and exists as foolishness and moronic, folly and nonsense, absurd and senseless, ignorant and stupid, ineffective and unintelligent to him, and he is also not powerful or mighty, able or capable, forcible or influenceable, authorised or significant, competent or excellent enough to know or understand, perceive or realise, notice or discern, discover or observe, experience or ascertain, learn or distinguish, judge or think about,  comprehend, acknowledge  or  recognise it,  for concerning this,  it is spiritually examined and questioned, accurately studied and investigated, carefully judged and evaluated, discerned and scrutinised, sifted and determined, estimated and assessed

As I said, he wasn't the best diplomat. The Renewed Covenant Translation: Version 1 is the one in English on that link I posted. If you can understand 'Greek' then the site is even better. The Ancient Papyrus Transcriptions are also worth looking at as well. One of them specifically mentions Mary being a 'Virgin in Womb'. Meaning to say, she had yet to bare a child. That's what the 'Virgin' part meant. Jesus was her firstborn child, and he had a brothers called James, Juda, Joses and Simon, and a few sisters. These things are out there. 'Seek and you'll find'. At the very least, they'll help clear up some misconceptions about the 'Carpenters Son'. Why people thought Jesus himself was a Carpenter is anyone's guess. Ah, yes, the religious need for someone to have a noble profession. Remember those gifts off those three wise men at his birth? Jesus himself had enough wealth to get by and be about his 'Father's business.

Matthew 13:55 Is not this the carpenter's son? is not his mother called Mary? and his brethren, James, and Joses, and Simon, and Judas?. (Strange how people knew his whole family, and yet Jesus supposedly vanished for well over a decade)

However keep in mind though, the flesh profits nothing. So, knowing these things won't help anyone spiritually. Oh, and as people can read above again, Paul had the 'knowledge' of the 'Soul' quite correct. Those religious with the mouths of devouring lions would wish to swallow up the truth of these things and your mind, with the smoke, fire and brimstone that comes out of their mouths.

From Yasha’Yah (Isaiah) 29:14 The worldly wisdom and natural intelligence, human knowledge, sophistication and insight of the wise and learned, skilful and clever, cultivated and experienced I shall destroy and annihilate, obliterate and render useless, ruin and cause to perish and pass away, and the sense and understanding, intelligence and mind, thoughts and impulses, intentions and purposes, notions and feelings, disposition and plan, attitude and comprehension, ideas and opinions, judgement and perception of the intelligent and prudent, united and comprehendible,  sagacious and insightful, reasonable and discernable sages I shall set aside and disregard, violate and ignore, annul and invalidate, break and revoke, deny and despise, abrogate and abolish, make void and get rid of, insult and offend, condemn, reject and refuse to recognise and accept their validity.

Isaiah 29:14 is an example of good editing into the same scripture below; which sums up the above swiftly. Not all translations and editions are bad, so don't be too wary. The King James version of the Bible is sufficient, and it is the seeing of the parables, allegories, proverbs and similitude's 'Plain upon the tables' that helps instructs a man in righteousness.

Habakkuk 2:2 And the Lord answered me, and said, Write the vision, and make it plain upon tables, that he may run that readeth it.

It would be foolishness to expect all men to know Hebrew, Aramaic and Greek, knowing that time being as it is would corrupt and decay the meaning of words. The story of the 'Tower of Babel' given to 'Moses' in a vision alludes to that.

Genesis 11:6-9 And the Lord said, Behold, the people is one, and they have all one language; and this they begin to do: and now nothing will be restrained from them, which they have imagined to do. Go to, let us go down, and there confound their language, that they may not understand one another's speech. So the Lord scattered them abroad from thence upon the face of all the earth: and they left off to build the city. Therefore is the name of it called Babel; because the Lord did there confound the language of all the earth: and from thence did the Lord scatter them abroad upon the face of all the earth.

So, the communication of the knowledge of God, and the spirit is done through the perception of the spirit. Hence, the whole 'Mystery of God'.

2 Timothy 3:16-17 All scripture is given by inspiration of God, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness: That the man of God may be perfect, thoroughly furnished unto all good works.

Regardless of what version people read, they will only see the parables, and in seeing they will not see and in reading they cannot read, for the book is sealed to the learned and unlearned, who both follow after the doctrines and traditions of men, serving only their own lips and their own belly.

Isaiah 29:11-13 And the vision of all is become unto you as the words of a book that is sealed, which men deliver to one that is learned, saying, Read this, I pray thee: and he saith, I cannot; for it is sealed: And the book is delivered to him that is not learned, saying, Read this, I pray thee: and he saith, I am not learned. Wherefore the Lord said, Forasmuch as this people draw near me with their mouth, and with their lips do honour me, but have removed their heart far from me, and their fear (instruction) toward me is taught by the precept of men:

Just know that the word 'Church' didn't exist in any of the early translations, and know that it is a major tare amongst the wheat, as Jesus himself said would be sown by those servants of the 'Wicked One'.

Isaiah 29:14 Therefore, behold, I will proceed to do a marvellous work among this people, even a marvellous work and a wonder: for the wisdom of their wise men shall perish, and the understanding of their prudent men shall be hid.

Only the 'Father' saves so seek only him that saves, because it is only the wisdom and knowledge that comes forth from him that will bring down the walls of Babylon, and remove those tares.

Revelation 9:17-19 And thus I saw the horses in the vision, and them that sat on them, having breastplates of fire, and of jacinth, and brimstone: and the heads of the horses were as the heads of lions; and out of their mouths issued fire and smoke and brimstone. By these three was the third part of men killed, by the fire, and by the smoke, and by the brimstone, which issued out of their mouths. For their power is in their mouth, and in their tails: (lies) for their tails were like unto serpents, (deceitful) and had heads, and with them they do hurt.

That is why, I refer to 'Christianity, as the religion of smoke, because it blocks the light of the fire, where the smoke comes from. Which of course would be Judaism, whose source is the 'Old Testament, that burning bush. Do not take the visions of others literally, nor the words of those that believe them in that way. They will harm the spirit, killing that third part of man.

Matthew 19:21-27 Jesus said unto him, If thou wilt be perfect, go and sell that thou hast, (He had no spiritual knowledge sell and give to the poor to begin with) and give to the poor, and thou shalt have treasure in heaven: and come and follow me. But when the young man heard that saying, he went away sorrowful: for he had great possessions. Then said Jesus unto his disciples, Verily I say unto you, That a rich man shall hardly enter into the kingdom of heaven. And again I say unto you, It is easier for a camel to go through the eye of a needle, than for a rich man to enter into the kingdom of God. When his disciples heard it, they were exceedingly amazed, saying, Who then can be saved? But Jesus beheld them, and said unto them, With men this is impossible; (Think, is it impossible to sell your physical goods without God?) but with God all things are possible. Then answered Peter and said unto him, Behold, we have forsaken all, and followed thee; what shall we have therefore?

Most people are like that rich man who had a lot of possessions and refused to give them up to receive an even greater possession. They will always prefer the old wine over the new.

Luke 5:39 No man also having drunk old wine straightway desireth new: for he saith, The old is better.

Again, as with all the things that Jesus said and did, it alludes to the knowledge of the spirit, which is the true wealth, and not the wisdom of man which is poverty.

Psalm 49:6-13 They that trust in their wealth, and boast themselves in the multitude of their riches; None of them can by any means redeem his brother, nor give to God a ransom for him: (For the redemption of their soul is precious, and it ceaseth for ever:) That he should still live for ever, and not see corruption. For he seeth that wise men die, likewise the fool and the brutish person perish, and leave their wealth to others. Their inward thought is, that their houses shall continue for ever, and their dwelling places to all generations; they call their lands after their own names. Nevertheless man being in honour abideth not: he is like the beasts that perish. This their way is their folly: yet their posterity approve their sayings. Selah.

Again, we must forsake our wealth, and become like a child, not literally like a child, who them gets brainwashed by the doctrine of men, (That's the wealth that needs to be forsaken) but like a child that has nothing in the way of knowledge, but is ready to learn something for the first time.

1 Peter 2:1-6 Wherefore laying aside all malice, and all guile, and hypocrisies, and envies, and all evil speakings, (Again, that is the wealth of the earth that needs to be forsaken and given up, not physical wealth.) As newborn babes, desire the sincere milk of the word, that ye may grow thereby: If so be ye have tasted that the Lord is gracious. To whom coming, as unto a living stone, (That rock) disallowed indeed of men, but chosen of God, and precious, Ye also, as lively stones, are built up a spiritual house, an holy priesthood, to offer up spiritual sacrifices, acceptable to God by Jesus Christ. Wherefore also it is contained in the scripture, Behold, I lay in Sion a chief corner stone, elect, precious: and he that believeth on him shall not be confounded. 

Have people noticed how the 'Apostles' used pieces of the 'Old Testament' to get their point across throughout the 'New Testament'. They were rightly dividing the word of truth. Unlike 'Christians' who use one piece of scripture that they think has meaning in isolation, but ultimately means nothing since it is only part of the bigger picture which they can neither see nor understand. There's no work from them, no study, just indoctrination, reading the 'Bible' like a book.

2 Timothy 2:15 Study to shew thyself approved unto God, a workman that needeth not to be ashamed, rightly dividing the word of truth.

People need to be made ready to receive that spiritual milk, so that as a spiritual child they may grow in their understanding, made ready to receive the spiritual meat, so that they may to become 'Living Stones'. Those stone of revelations, that rock of revelation brought forth by the 'Father' in heaven., which is needed to build upon the foundation of the prophets and the apostles, of which Jesus was the chief cornerstone.

Ephesians 4:14 That we henceforth be no more children, tossed to and fro, and carried about with every wind of doctrine, by the sleight of men, and cunning craftiness, whereby they lie in wait to deceive;

And with that rock, with 'God's words' of truth within us, no one can remove that rock laid upon the surest of foundations. Not even the 'Gates of Hell', which is about the 'mouths of men', who would seek to deceive all minds with their doctrines which they buy off and sell to others, seeking to 'Mark' them into their ways of thinking. Consider how Marxism, lead to Lenin, Stalin, and yes even Hitler had influence Mao, Guevara and even many current day socialist thinkers, great and small. Remember that the beast has many heads, and many doctrines of the earth to mark people with. Now do you understand what the 'Mark of the Beast' is?

Job 35:10-11 But none saith, Where is God my maker, who giveth songs in the night; Who teacheth us more than the beasts of the earth, and maketh us wiser than the fowls of heaven?

Without the 'Seal of God' which is spiritually placed on the forehead, all people have all already been marked, and now are 'Beasts of the Earth' themselves. People should be very careful on who they make their masters and teachers. You should probably know how easy it is to do, since most are influenced to some degree by the media.

Matthew 16:18 And I say also unto thee, That thou art Peter, and upon this rock I will build my church; ('The Father' will call and gather those out of this world) and the gates of hell shall not prevail against it.

No longer will the mind be held in captivity of this world, held in bonage by the doctrines and traditions of men, who lack the knowledge of God.

Colossians 2:18 Let no man beguile you of your reward in a voluntary humility and worshipping of angels, intruding into those things which he hath not seen, vainly puffed up by his fleshly mind,

They deceive all people with their own knowledge and understanding of things, yes, even the unseen things, which they cannot know.

Isaiah 5:13-15 Therefore my people are gone into captivity, because they have no knowledge: and their honourable men are famished, and their multitude dried up with thirst. Therefore hell hath enlarged herself, and opened her mouth without measure: and their glory, and their multitude, and their pomp, and he that rejoiceth, shall descend into it. And the mean man shall be brought down, and the mighty man shall be humbled, and the eyes of the lofty shall be humbled:

Those with the knowledge of the spirit will be of the 'Elect', and no longer will the mouths of men be able to deceive them, for they will have been fortified by a rock, that none can prevail against.

Matthew 24:24 For there shall arise false Christs, and false prophets, and shall shew great signs and wonders; insomuch that, if it were possible, they shall deceive the very elect.

To put it in a allegory, that rock of revelation will dash the 'Daughter of Babylon's' little ones against the stones of the sea.

Psalm 137:8-9 O daughter of Babylon, who art to be destroyed; happy shall he be, that rewardeth thee as thou hast served us. (Filling her cup double, recall the 'Whore of Babylon) Happy shall he be, that taketh and dasheth thy little ones against the stones.

Those little ones are those that serve her, almost every man, free and bond, rich and poor, all are her children currently, and all are the inhabitants of her great city, which is, and is not, but yet is.

Revelation 17:3-8 So he carried me away in the spirit into the wilderness: and I saw a woman sit upon a scarlet coloured beast, full of names of blasphemy, having seven heads and ten horns. And the woman was arrayed in purple and scarlet colour, and decked with gold and precious stones and pearls, having a golden cup in her hand full of abominations and filthiness of her fornication: And upon her forehead was a name written, (Why the forehead, because it alludes the thoughts of man, all people are 'Marked' with) Mystery, Babylon The Great, The Mother Of Harlots And Abominations Of The Earth. And I saw the woman drunken with the blood of the saints, and with the blood of the martyrs of Jesus: and when I saw her, I wondered with great admiration. And the angel said unto me, Wherefore didst thou marvel? I will tell thee the mystery of the woman, and of the beast that carrieth her, which hath the seven heads and ten horns. The beast that thou sawest was, and is not; and shall ascend out of the bottomless pit, and go into perdition: and they that dwell on the earth shall wonder, (So, the Earth is the place of perdition. The devil is in the details) whose names were not written in the book of life from the foundation of the world, when they behold the beast that was, and is not, and yet is.

And whilst men are inhabitants of her city, then they will receive her sins, and receive all of her plagues. So, as said, in revelation, people must come out of her, and then her wickedness can be revealed. To the others who are not in the book of life, then they will not understand and can only wonder about such things, because these things will remain a mystery to them.

2 Thessalonians 2:6-8 And now ye know what withholdeth that he might be revealed in his time. For the mystery of iniquity doth already work: only he who now letteth will let, until he be taken out of the way. And then shall that Wicked be revealed, whom the Lord shall consume with the spirit of his mouth, and shall destroy with the brightness of his coming:

What is in the way, is the heart in a man (which includes one's own personality), and with it, the wisdom of man, that knowledge of good and evil within it. It is the word of God, that 'Holy Spirit; that is revealed to the mind that helps take back control of the soul in a man.

Luke 21:19 In your patience possess ye your souls.

That is the Father’s vengeance upon Satan, to reveal the mystery of it, so his works can be cast of out the minds of men, like lightning.

Luke 10:18-19 And he said unto them, I beheld Satan as lightning fall from heaven. Behold, I give unto you power to tread on serpents and scorpions, and over all the power of the enemy: and nothing shall by any means hurt you.

Meaning to say, with the knowledge of the mystery of iniquity at work in all men, can 'Satan's' works be cast of of the minds of men, so that they can be in God's rest. That is the true 'Sabbath'.

2 Thessalonians 2:6-8 And now ye know what withholdeth that he might be revealed in his time. For the mystery of iniquity doth already work: only he who now letteth will let, until he be taken out of the way. And then shall that Wicked be revealed, whom the Lord shall consume with the spirit of his mouth, and shall destroy with the brightness of his coming:

Then one will have have come out of her, out of the midst of its wicked thoughts, intentions and imaginations ruling over the spirit, which previously it has made drunken with the wine of her sins. A keypoint, you will have to learn to seperate your heart's thoughts from the mind's awareness of those thoughts, otherwise as said below, the mind will but cut off by those same thoughts which are blocking your mind's awareness.

Jeremiah 51:6 Flee out of the midst of Babylon, and deliver every man his soul: be not cut off in her iniquity; for this is the time of the Lord’s vengeance; he will render unto her a recompence.

Babylon is an actual place, but it is also the place that is used in the Bible as a similitude for the soul and it's evil. It doesn't always have to be 'Babylon' itself, but for the most part that is the primary place name used.

Jeremiah 51:7 Babylon hath been a golden cup in the Lord’s hand, that made all the earth drunken the nations have drunken of her wine; therefore the nations are mad.

If you know the book of Revelation, you'll see the above is more or less mentioned the same way there. And again, it refers to the subconscious, our heart’s wicked thoughts, intentions and imaginations, that we get drunk off, spiritually speaking, we buy babylon's merchandise, and she has many merchants serving her night and day.

Revelation 17:4 And the woman was arrayed in purple and scarlet color, and bedecked with gold and precious stones and pearls, having a golden cup in her hand full of abominations and filthiness of her fornication;

Yet we continue to think that her merchandise is good, we are attracted to them, more than the knowledge of God, thus we're committing spiritual adultery with her, fornicating with her. Which is the knowledge of good and evil, which causes us to sin, because we're always buying and eating her fruit, which keeps our eyes closed, and our ears shut up, which keeps away from the 'Path of Righteousness'. (Caring about earthly events doesn't make a person righteous btw)

Matthew 13:16 But blessed are your eyes, for they see: and your ears, for they hear.

Look for the parallels, which have been spoken in parables by the Prophets, who used the events of their times to talk of the future, hidden behind either a proverb, a similitude or an allegory.

Matthew 13:17 For verily I say unto you, That many prophets and righteous men have desired to see those things which ye see, and have not seen them; and to hear those things which ye hear, and have not heard them.

And remember, none of the prophets like Daniel could have any understanding of this things, because Jesus had not yet come make things perfect. But the 'Law and Prophets' spoke of a hope for the future when he would come and restore the knowledge of the spirit into the minds of men.

Hebrews 7:19 For the law made nothing perfect, but the bringing in of a better hope did; by the which we draw nigh unto God.

It's very easy to sit and criticise all religions and ideologies, but the fact of the matter, these things were preordained. Set in motion from the very beginning, so that all those who fell could be redeemed.

2 Peter 3:9 The Lord is not slack concerning his promise, as some men count slackness; but is longsuffering to us-ward, not willing that any should perish, but that all should come to repentance.

It is not the soul that is redeemed, nor the flesh, but the spirit, and it is that which is ultimately raised up when it's time of one's end comes in the flesh. There's a misconception about the end times. It doesn't refer to the end of the world, it is about the quickening spirits time of regeneration, and thus its ultimate resurrection out of this world, finishing its course.

2 Timothy 4:6-8 For I am now ready to be offered, and the time of my departure is at hand. I have fought a good fight, I have finished my course, I have kept the faith: Henceforth there is laid up for me a crown of righteousness, which the Lord, the righteous judge, shall give me at that day: and not to me only, but unto all them also that love his appearing.

Do not be fooled, there's no mass event where all will be redeemed at the same time, more like it will be one by one.

Luke 13:30 And, behold, there are last which shall be first, and there are first which shall be last.

There's a very long road ahead for some, so don't let those who are last take you with them. They're are the ones who would be the first in this world, and they have a lot to pay for, put it that way.

Matthew 5:25-26 Agree with thine adversary quickly, whiles thou art in the way with him; lest at any time the adversary deliver thee to the judge, and the judge deliver thee to the officer, and thou be cast into prison. Verily I say unto thee, Thou shalt by no means come out thence, till thou hast paid the uttermost farthing.

There's no easy escape from this prison (Most aren't even aware that they're in one, even worse, like being here), and all will have to pay their price. Babylon will not let her inhabitants flee the city that easily. As said above, people have to fight the good fight to be released from captivity.

Jeremiah 51: 9 We would have healed Babylon, but she is not healed: forsake her, and let us go every one into his own country: (Israel aka Heaven) for her judgment reacheth unto heaven, and is lifted up even to the skies.

As stated, forsake her, come out of her, and go into your own country spiritually called (Israel) that is of the spirit. Stop paying heed to her unrighteousness, following after the heart's lusts, receiving her plagues that causes us to do good and evil, reaping what we sow, all the while, knowing not what we do. Like getting blind drunk off her drink, and forgetting all about it the next day.

Revelation 18:4-5 And I heard another voice from Heaven, saying, “Come out of her, my people, that ye be not partakers of her sins, and that ye receive not of her plagues; for her sins have reached unto Heaven, and God hath remembered her iniquities. 

Let the 'Father’s' word within you be your shining arrows against 'Babylon', the heart within all people, which currently is ruling over all our minds. Seek first the 'Father' righteousness, which will heal your mind from the sins of  'Babylon' and thus making the parables, proverbs, allegories and the similitudes of the scriptures plain upon the tables, which were given to the prophets in visions, to seal up in the 'Old Testament'

Habakkuk 2:2-3 And the Lord answered me, and said, Write the vision, and make it plain upon tables, that he may run that readeth it. For the vision is yet for an appointed time, but at the end it shall speak, and not lie: though it tarry, wait for it; because it will surely come, it will not tarry.

Learn to shield the mind from the soul's wicked thoughts, intentions and imaginings, with the word of God within his temple of the spirit. Let the word of God be the device which you use to bring down 'Babylon', which we have beforehand been held in captivity, tossed to and fro by its wiles and desires.

Luke 22:31 And the Lord said, Simon, Simon, behold, Satan hath desired to have you, that he may sift you as wheat:

With the Father’s revelations, received within, utterly destroy 'Babylon’s' rule over your own spirit and escape from that 'Great City' In short, be taught by God about yourself.

John 4:23-24 But the hour cometh, and now is, when the true worshippers shall worship the Father in spirit and in truth: for the Father seeketh such to worship him. God is a Spirit: and they that worship him must worship him in spirit and in truth.

Ask for knowledge in the spirit and receive knowledge of the spirit.

Jeremiah 51:10-11 The Lord hath brought forth our righteousness: come, and let us declare in Zion (Israel) the work of the Lord our God. Make bright the arrows; gather the shields: the Lord hath raised up the spirit of the kings of the Medes: for his device is against Babylon, to destroy it; because it is the vengeance of the Lord, the vengeance of his temple.

The temple is of the spirit, and we must keep watch on its walls, holding off every attack of the soul, which seeks to keep us serving it, in its kingdom, with its subjects, the thoughts and imaginations of the heart.

Habakkuk 2:20 But the Lord is in his holy temple: let all the earth keep silence before him.

Those thoughts and imagings need to be made silent, and they must be spotted before they invade the land. And pay heed, lest the heart waxes strong in earthly doctrines, ideologies, religions, and the wisdom of man, for that same wealth of knowledge will stop the works of the soul being made silent, because they will mark the mind with the wisdom of man, and that wisdom that all people puff themselves up with will blind the spirit.

Jeremiah 51:12 Set up the standard upon the walls of Babylon, make the watch strong, set up the watchmen, prepare the ambushes: for the Lord hath both devised and done that which he spake against the inhabitants of Babylon.

We need to become like Jesus, when he said, the prince of the world comes, and has nothing in him. With the knowledge from the Father within, we put an end to this fake Golden City within us, and make its works cease in us, so that its pipers and trumpeters and the harpers and craftsmen (The wicked thoughts and imaginations) are heard no more within us, and shall be found no more in within us.

Revelation 18:22 And the voice of harpers, and musicians, and of pipers, and trumpeters, shall be heard no more at all in thee; and no craftsman, of whatsoever craft he be, shall be found any more in thee; and the sound of a millstone shall be heard no more at all in thee;

Resist the devil and he shall flee from people, meaning to say, the works of our own heart will be made silent, and we'll be at rest from all of the tribulations it causes us to suffer. The war will have been won, and the mind will emerge victorious from that battle of 'Armageddon'.

Isaiah 14:3-5 And it shall come to pass in the day that the Lord shall give thee rest from thy sorrow, and from thy fear, and from the hard bondage wherein thou wast made to serve, That thou shalt take up this proverb against the king of Babylon, and say, How hath the oppressor ceased! the golden city ceased. The Lord hath broken the staff of the wicked, and the sceptre of the rulers.

No longer shall he rule over our spirits, whispering its lies to our minds. The Father's swift and powerful word shall divide her asunder with his great strong sword of truth, while we seek his righteousness within our spirit.

Luke 2:35 (Yea, a sword shall pierce through thy own soul also,) that the thoughts of many hearts may be revealed.

The 'Father's' sword will pierce our souls, revealing its wickedness in ourselves and in others. We shall no longer be held in captivity like in times past, and we shall no longer die in her sins, which she causes us to follow after, holding us in its iniquity.

Jeremiah 20:6 And thou, Pashur, and all that dwell in thine house shall go into captivity: and thou shalt come to Babylon, and there thou shalt die, and shalt be buried there, (Again, perceive with the spirit and not the flesh, or you will think it is about the flesh being buried) thou, and all thy friends, to whom thou hast prophesied lies.

The knowledge revealed by the 'Father' shall cast her down to the dust, no longer shall her words be found within, she shall no longer glorify herself in the world that follows after her, and all those that live in her city, that rules over all nations (peoples) will seek to depart.

Isaiah 47:1 Come down, and sit in the dust, O virgin daughter of Babylon, sit on the ground: there is no throne, O daughter of the Chaldeans: for thou shalt no more be called tender and delicate. 

What do people see as tender and delicate? the heart, and the heart is that 'Mystery Babylon' , that mother of all harlots. We have unwittingly put her on the throne, in the most Holy of places, and have developed a whore's forehead, and in such the 'Word of God' cannot rain upon the mind of a whore, for a whore knows no shame, nor will see it.

Jeremiah 3:3 Therefore the showers have been withholden, and there hath been no latter rain; and thou hadst a whore's forehead, thou refusedst to be ashamed.

Our hearts which are abomination to God, contains all of the knowledge of good and evil which we all hold in high esteem.

Luke 16:15 And he said unto them, Ye are they which justify yourselves before men; but God knoweth your hearts: for that which is highly esteemed among men is abomination in the sight of God.

That has left our spirit desolate, far away from the word of God, and the knowledge given from his 'Holy Spirit'.

Matthew 24:15 When ye therefore shall see the abomination of desolation, spoken of by Daniel the prophet, stand in the holy place, (whoso readeth, let him understand:) (Meaning, perceive with your spirit, not your understand of the flesh)

The Bible can be a treasure trove of knowledge if one can see with the spirit, and thus developing the ability to rightly divided the words of truth.

2 Timothy 2:15 Study to shew thyself approved unto God, a workman that needeth not to be ashamed, rightly dividing the word of truth.

The heathen will state that you're taking things out of context, regardless of the fact that is what the apostles did with the words of the 'Old Testament' when used in the 'New Testament', and in fact that is what Jesus did also. However, people aren't supposed to believe when told, keep that in mind.

Habakkuk 1:5 Behold ye among the heathen, and regard, and wonder marvelously: for I will work a work in your days which ye will not believe, though it be told you.

Here's an example of the above in the 'Old Testament' being so-called taken out of context in 'New Testament'.

Acts 13:41-46 Behold, ye despisers, and wonder, and perish: for I work a work in your days, a work which ye shall in no wise believe, though a man declare it unto you. And when the Jews were gone out of the synagogue, the Gentiles besought that these words might be preached to them the next sabbath. Now when the congregation was broken up, many of the Jews and religious proselytes followed Paul and Barnabas: who, speaking to them, persuaded them to continue in the grace of God. And the next sabbath day came almost the whole city together to hear the word of God. But when the Jews saw the multitudes, they were filled with envy, and spake against those things which were spoken by Paul, contradicting and blaspheming. Then Paul and Barnabas waxed bold, and said, It was necessary that the word of God should first have been spoken to you: but seeing ye put it from you, and judge yourselves unworthy of everlasting life, lo, we turn to the Gentiles.

People say that because of envy, because they're blind and cannot understand the knowledge of the 'Kingdom' because if they did, it would bring to naught all their years of study in the knowledge that they're rich in. Again, hardly a rich man can enter into heaven, especially with all of those religious and philosophical possessions.

Proverbs 29:8-9 Scornful men bring a city into a snare: but wise men turn away wrath. If a wise man contendeth with a foolish man, whether he rage or laugh, there is no rest.

The wise man must become a fool to become wise again, and so when that happens, do not debate and argue with them, otherwise you're just sowing to yourself corruption.

2 Corinthians 11:3 But I fear, lest by any means, as the serpent beguiled Eve through his subtilty, so your minds should be corrupted from the simplicity that is in Christ.

Only the Father reveals the true knowledge contained within, hence the need to seek him first within, in spirit. People who argue and debate expect to be praised and worshipped by men. It is not men who remove the veil from the mind about these things, again, the primary thing to do is to seek the 'Father', so that he can remove the veil, that is done away by following what Christ taught. With the veil remaining in its current place, people can only read and know these things in an earthly fashion, and thus people will err in their understanding.

Jeremiah 51:44 And I will punish Bel in Babylon, and I will bring forth out of his mouth that which he hath swallowed up: and the nations  shall not flow together any more unto him: yea, the wall of Babylon shall fall.

As people develop the ability to perceive with the spirit, the walls of Babylon will slowly start to crumble, and as it crumbles, more understanding of the spirit will be poured into the mind. 'The rains of heaven, will water the fields, so that more fruit can grow'.

Proverbs 1:23 Turn you at my reproof: behold, I will pour out my spirit unto you, I will make known my words unto you.

That veil, that covering cast over all people (soul), will be destroyed in the mountain (Spirit).

Isaiah 25:6-8 And in this mountain shall the Lord of hosts make unto all people a feast of fat things, a feast of wines on the lees, of fat things full of marrow, of wines on the lees well refined. And he will destroy in this mountain the face of the covering cast over all people, and the vail that is spread over all nations. He will swallow up death in victory; and the Lord God will wipe away tears from off all faces; and the rebuke of his people shall he take away from off all the earth: for the Lord hath spoken it.

Yes, Babylon shall fall, as it is revealed to the mind, to the astonishment of all of mankind, (nations) in their individual time of regeneration, near their own individual end time in the flesh, where one's own death will be swallowed up in victory, after people have feasted on the knowledge of the spirit, and drank that good wine.

Jeremiah 51:41 How is Sheshach taken! and how is the praise of the whole earth surprised! how is Babylon become an astonishment among the nations! (Because no one expected it to be the 'heart' in man. But as written, it is wicked and deceitful above all things, who can know this mystery of Babylon?)

Can you not see, can you not yet hear? This is how Prophecy works, in the shadows of things to come, bringing things into your remembrance. A memorial of the things that are behind you, speaking of the things to come, in front of you. That is the spirit of prophecy, only to be seen and understood with the spirit. Try as a person might with the flesh, it cannot be understood in human terms.

Revelation 18:21 And a mighty angel took up a stone like a great millstone, and cast it into the sea, saying, Thus with violence shall that great city Babylon be thrown down, and shall be found no more at all.

Don't forget, it is by God's knowledge that Babylon is destroyed, and his knowledge refers to the spirit, not the things of this world. This song takes on a whole new meaning now; so, remember what strange land people are held captive in, and remember what land people have forgotten.

Psalm 137:1-5 By the rivers of Babylon, there we sat down, yea, we wept, when we remembered Zion. We hanged our harps upon the willows in the midst thereof. 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. How shall we sing the Lord's song in a strange land? If I forget thee, O Jerusalem, let my right hand forget her cunning.


Merchants of the Earth

Seventh Thunder May 22, 2020
People need to be aware of the supplier of their merchandise, because if the merchandise is of the flesh and about the things this world, then the things of the spirit will remain unseen, for example this below which is about the flesh (The letter);

Genesis 9:9 And I, behold, I establish my covenant with you, and with your seed after you;

It is the 'Holy Spirit' which the world cannot receive that teaches a man about the things of the spirit, and passes on the 'Everlasting Gospel of Life' to the mind that has made itself ready to receive it. 

Romans 7:6 But now we are delivered from the law, that being dead wherein we were held; that we should serve in newness of spirit, and not in the oldness of the letter.

So, Genesis 9:9 now means, having the knowledge of the spirit being established within a person, and the seed would be the knowledge of the 'Gospel of the Kingdom' that someone with it has spread in the world. Such a one would be being fruitful and multiplying.

1 Corinthians 1:19-29 For it is written, I will destroy the wisdom of the wise, and will bring to nothing the understanding of the prudent. Where is the wise? where is the scribe? where is the disputer of this world? hath not God made foolish the wisdom of this world? For after that in the wisdom of God the world by wisdom knew not God, it pleased God by the foolishness of preaching to save them that believe. For the Jews require a sign, and the Greeks seek after wisdom: But we preach Christ crucified, unto the Jews a stumblingblock, and unto the Greeks foolishness; But unto them which are called, both Jews and Greeks, Christ the power of God, and the wisdom of God. Because the foolishness of God is wiser than men; and the weakness of God is stronger than men. For ye see your calling, brethren, how that not many wise men after the flesh, not many mighty, not many noble, are called: But God hath chosen the foolish things of the world to confound the wise; and God hath chosen the weak things of the world to confound the things which are mighty; And base things of the world, and things which are despised, hath God chosen, yea, and things which are not, to bring to nought things that are: That no flesh should glory in his presence.

People cannot overcome the world using the the very things of the world that bind people to it. Primarily, the wisdom of man, since a mind without the everlasting gospel can only perceive and understand the things of the flesh. Which is why men seek after signs in the earth, having their confidence base on the things of the flesh. 

Philippians 3:3 For we are the circumcision, which worship God in the spirit, and rejoice in Christ Jesus, and have no confidence in the flesh.

For example, the saying 'Behold, he cometh with clouds, and every eye shall see him', the religious take an earthly view of that, and as such are expecting the supernatural to happen. Even if such a thing did happen, most still wouldn't believe anyway. 

John 3:10-14 Jesus answered and said unto him, Art thou a master of Israel, and knowest not these things? Verily, verily, I say unto thee, We speak that we do know, and testify that we have seen; and ye receive not our witness. If I have told you earthly things, and ye believe not, how shall ye believe, if I tell you of heavenly things? And no man hath ascended up to heaven, but he that came down from heaven, even the Son of man which is in heaven. And as Moses lifted up the serpent in the wilderness, even so must the Son of man be lifted up:

Jesus's life in the flesh was testament to that, as he pretty much stated above. So, unless people lift their spirit up into that 'Holy Place', how will they perceive the things of the spirit, when the 'Son of man' is only focused on the things of the flesh?

Revelation 1:7 Behold, he cometh with clouds; and every eye shall see him, and they also which pierced him: and all kindreds of the earth shall wail because of him. Even so, Amen.

Now people are busy waiting for someone to come from the sky, to save all those that believe. But people again negate the things that are unseen, because they cannot see that eye = mind, and so the body is full of darkness.  

Zechariah 10:1 Ask ye of the Lord rain in the time of the latter rain; so the Lord shall make bright clouds, and give them showers of rain, to every one grass in the field.

Jesus also said that he spoke in parables, and if they're not perceived with the spirit, then erroneous thoughts of the flesh will get in the road, and be a stumbling block. So, what do clouds do? they cover the sun and yet they bring the rains of the heavens.

Psalm 147:8 Who covereth the heaven with clouds, who prepareth rain for the earth, who maketh grass to grow upon the mountains.

When people look for things that are seen, then the 'Gospel of the kingdom' is hidden. But when people with faith look for the things unseen, then the gospel of the kingdom is revealed to that seeking mind. Like a light shining through a cloud.

Job 36:32 With clouds he covereth the light; and commandeth it not to shine by the cloud that cometh betwixt.

Jesus did say that world cannot receive the spirit of truth, and people are still looking for a man in the flesh to save them, from what they know not what.

Isaiah 25:7-8 And he will destroy in this mountain the face of the covering cast over all people, and the vail that is spread over all nations. He will swallow up death in victory; and the Lord God will wipe away tears from off all faces; and the rebuke of his people shall he take away from off all the earth: for the Lord hath spoken it.

Behold, he comes with covering cloud, and in this mountain he will destroy the covering cast over all nations. 

Acts 2:20 The sun shall be turned into darkness, and the moon into blood, before the great and notable day of the Lord come:

Unfortunately, for now, the light is not shining through the clouds, and instead that cloud is a dark cloud, and the sun has been turned to darkness behind it, and the moon turned to into the colour of blood. 

Amos 5:18 Woe unto you that desire the day of the Lord! to what end is it for you? the day of the Lord is darkness, and not light.

Put this way, the 'Day of Lord' cannot come like a thief in the night if everyone can see it coming, can it now?

1 Thessalonians 5:2 For yourselves know perfectly that the day of the Lord so cometh as a thief in the night.

The Lord's day is the sabbath, and the sabbath means peace, and on the sabbath you're supposed to cease from works, and yes even the works of our own hearts.

Hebrews 4:9-11 There remaineth therefore a rest to the people of God. For he that is entered into his rest, he also hath ceased from his own works, as God did from his. Let us labour therefore to enter into that rest, lest any man fall after the same example of unbelief.

So, to be at rest within one's spirit, one must go within, into that 'Kingdom'

Mark 2:27-28 And he said unto them, The sabbath was made for man, and not man for the sabbath: Therefore the Son of man is Lord also of the sabbath.

The 'Kingdom of Heaven' that comes not with observation, because it is within.

Luke 17:20-21 And when he was demanded of the Pharisees, when the kingdom of God should come, he answered them and said, The kingdom of God cometh not with observation: Neither shall they say, Lo here! or, lo there! for, behold, the kingdom of God is within you.

So within is the Lord's Day, that comes like a thief in the night, because it is already in our house, a house which has been made a house of merchandise, and we sell the things of our house for others to buy. 

Revelation 1:10 I was in the Spirit on the Lord's day, and heard behind me a great voice, as of a trumpet.

Unlike John above, who was in the spirit on the Lord's Day, because John had ceased from the works of his soul, and instead brought the gold of Jesus that was tired in the fire of the earth. 

Revelation 3:18 I counsel thee to buy of me gold tried in the fire, that thou mayest be rich; and white raiment, that thou mayest be clothed, and that the shame of thy nakedness do not appear; and anoint thine eyes with eyesalve, that thou mayest see.

John had become rich in the knowledge of the spirit, because understood the following.

Habakkuk 2:20 But the Lord is in his holy temple: let all the earth keep silence before him.

He knew the meaning of 'Be still, and know God' But, naturally, people looking outwards towards the world, seeking signs and miracles, miss the whole true meaning of the Lord's Day, and thus it has come like a thief in the night, all the while they seek the light in the darkness. 

John 4:23-24 But the hour cometh, and now is, when the true worshippers shall worship the Father in spirit and in truth: for the Father seeketh such to worship him. God is a Spirit: and they that worship him must worship him in spirit and in truth.

The 'Kingdom of Heaven' has always been available to people, but the wisdom of man has shut up that knowledge to people, since they run after the wisdom and knowledge of men, through their religions and traditions, their philosophy and politics, and through their doctrines and ideologies.

Amos 8:11-12 Behold, the days come, saith the Lord God, that I will send a famine in the land, not a famine of bread, nor a thirst for water, but of hearing the words of the Lord: And they shall wander from sea to sea, and from the north even to the east, they shall run to and fro to seek the word of the Lord, and shall not find it.

In short, there has been no rain, and the fields are all dried up, and thus, there has been a famine in the land. As prophesied above. 

Job 35:10-12 But none saith, Where is God my maker, who giveth songs in the night; Who teacheth us more than the beasts of the earth, and maketh us wiser than the fowls of heaven? There they cry, but none giveth answer, because of the pride of evil men.

Unfortunately, during a famine, people will eat any manner of food that comes from those 'Beast of the Earth'. Who are those false prophets and teachers of men. These are the 'Merchants of the Earth' who make merchandise of people.

2 Peter 2:1-4 But there were false prophets also among the people, even as there shall be false teachers among you, who privily shall bring in damnable heresies, even denying the Lord that bought them, and bring upon themselves swift destruction. (Again, think terms of the spirit and not the flesh) And many shall follow their pernicious ways; by reason of whom the way of truth shall be evil spoken of. And through covetousness shall they with feigned words make merchandise of you: whose judgment now of a long time lingereth not, and their damnation slumbereth not. (Mean to say, people are already damned, which means to pay a penalty, and that penalty is to be ignorant of the true 'Gospel of the Kingdom') For if God spared not the angels that sinned, but cast them down to hell, (Our ignorant spirits are those fallen angels) and delivered them into chains of darkness,(Those chains are again about being locked into our own ignorance of the spirit) to be reserved unto judgment; (Death, and the inevitable rebirth into hell, again paying the penalty for our sins)

A merchant is known for the quality of their goods which are seen by all people. 

Ezekiel 28:16 By the multitude of thy merchandise they have filled the midst of thee with violence, and thou hast sinned: therefore I will cast thee as profane out of the mountain of God: and I will destroy thee, O covering cherub, from the midst of the stones of fire.

And if the merchandise is bad, then the merchant is bad also, because they didn't bother to investigate their supplier.

Proverbs 31:18 She perceiveth that her merchandise is good: her candle goeth not out by night.

It is not good to have other people buying the corrupt goods that the merchants sell, since in that way they'll be marked in their minds. 

Isaiah 27:1 In that day the Lord with his sore and great and strong sword shall punish leviathan the piercing serpent, even leviathan that crooked serpent; and he shall slay the dragon that is in the sea.

Since it is that crooked serpent, even that Leviathan that has made its dwelling place in our collective minds, that is the supplier of our merchandise, which we then go on to sell for others to buy. We are full of her riches, and are made rich because of her.

Ezekiel 27:33 When thy wares went forth out of the seas, thou filledst many people; thou didst enrich the kings of the earth with the multitude of thy riches and of thy merchandise.

It's like being in a building with a book in your hand, thinking in your forehead about the contents of a book.

Revelation 13:16-17 And he causeth all, both small and great, rich and poor, free and bond, to receive a mark in their right hand, or in their foreheads: And that no man might buy or sell, save he that had the mark, or the name of the beast, or the number of his name.

Now if the supplier of the book hasn't told you the correct way to read the book, then you could be corrupted by the contents within it, and thus be marked in such a fashion. And people being marked themselves, they will then go on to sell their own heart's interpretation of the book to others, and they may buy into it also, thusly, be marked. For example, being marked by the belief that the mark of the beast is some mark of the flesh, related to banking, like having a microchip, or a barcode stamped on the flesh, that without having, people cannot literally buy and sell the things of the flesh. Negating the fact that all people as said above, have the mark, regardless of their station in the world.

John 2:16 And said unto them that sold doves, Take these things hence; make not my Father's house an house of merchandise.

What is being said is, don't become a merchant, and make the 'Father's House' a house of merchandise. Instead we should be seeking to destroy that which is in the midst of our mind, and cast it out of our 'Father house' so that we no longer buy and sell her goods. 

Ezekiel 27:30-36 And shall cause their voice to be heard against thee, and shall cry bitterly, and shall cast up dust upon their heads, they shall wallow themselves in the ashes: And they shall make themselves utterly bald for thee, and gird them with sackcloth, and they shall weep for thee with bitterness of heart and bitter wailing. And in their wailing they shall take up a lamentation for thee, and lament over thee, saying, What city is like Tyrus, like the destroyed in the midst of the sea? When thy wares went forth out of the seas, thou filledst many people; thou didst enrich the kings of the earth with the multitude of thy riches and of thy merchandise. In the time when thou shalt be broken by the seas in the depths of the waters thy merchandise and all thy company in the midst of thee shall fall. All the inhabitants of the isles shall be astonished at thee, and their kings shall be sore afraid, they shall be troubled in their countenance. The merchants among the people shall hiss at thee; thou shalt be a terror, and never shalt be any more.

We must cut off the supplier of sins, and its violence that it inflicts upon our minds. 

Isaiah 60:18 Violence shall no more be heard in thy land, wasting nor destruction within thy borders; but thou shalt call thy walls Salvation, and thy gates Praise.

In short, we must work to bring it to ruin, and terrorise it with the truth, that renewing and purifying word of God.

1 Peter 1:22-25 Seeing ye have purified your souls in obeying the truth through the Spirit unto unfeigned love of the brethren, see that ye love one another with a pure heart fervently: Being born again, not of corruptible seed, but of incorruptible, by the word of God, which liveth and abideth for ever. For all flesh is as grass, and all the glory of man as the flower of grass. The grass withereth, and the flower thereof falleth away: But the word of the Lord endureth for ever. And this is the word which by the gospel is preached unto you.

Of course, I talk about the spirit and soul, in an allegory, just like the scripture below does. Those who are marked, will think it is about earthly wealth, and about a literal city, since that's what they buy and sell. Their own heart's merchandise which they then spread to others, and of course when I say merchandise, people do know I'm talking about man's own knowledge and wisdom right?

Revelation 18:2-19 And he cried mightily with a strong voice, saying, Babylon the great is fallen, is fallen, and is become the habitation of devils, and the hold of every foul spirit, and a cage of every unclean and hateful bird. For all nations have drunk of the wine of the wrath of her fornication, and the kings of the earth have committed fornication with her, and the merchants of the earth are waxed rich through the abundance of her delicacies. And I heard another voice from heaven, saying, Come out of her, my people, that ye be not partakers of her sins, and that ye receive not of her plagues. For her sins have reached unto heaven, and God hath remembered her iniquities. Reward her even as she rewarded you, and double unto her double according to her works: in the cup which she hath filled fill to her double. How much she hath glorified herself, and lived deliciously, so much torment and sorrow give her: for she saith in her heart, I sit a queen, and am no widow, and shall see no sorrow. Therefore shall her plagues come in one day, death, and mourning, and famine; and she shall be utterly burned with fire: for strong is the Lord God who judgeth her. And the kings of the earth, who have committed fornication and lived deliciously with her, shall bewail her, and lament for her, when they shall see the smoke of her burning, Standing afar off for the fear of her torment, saying, Alas, alas that great city Babylon, that mighty city! for in one hour is thy judgment come. And the merchants of the earth shall weep and mourn over her; for no man buyeth their merchandise any more: The merchandise of gold, and silver, and precious stones, and of pearls, and fine linen, and purple, and silk, and scarlet, and all thyine wood, and all manner vessels of ivory, and all manner vessels of most precious wood, and of brass, and iron, and marble, And cinnamon, and odours, and ointments, and frankincense, and wine, and oil, and fine flour, and wheat, and beasts, and sheep, and horses, and chariots, and slaves, and souls of men. And the fruits that thy soul lusted after are departed from thee, and all things which were dainty and goodly are departed from thee, and thou shalt find them no more at all. The merchants of these things, which were made rich by her, shall stand afar off for the fear of her torment, weeping and wailing, And saying, Alas, alas that great city, that was clothed in fine linen, and purple, and scarlet, and decked with gold, and precious stones, and pearls! For in one hour so great riches is come to nought. And every shipmaster, and all the company in ships, and sailors, and as many as trade by sea, stood afar off, And cried when they saw the smoke of her burning, saying, What city is like unto this great city! And they cast dust on their heads, and cried, weeping and wailing, saying, Alas, alas that great city, wherein were made rich all that had ships in the sea by reason of her costliness! for in one hour is she made desolate.

Because the 'Father's House' is the mind in a man, and we must make desolate that which made our spirit desolate. Rewarding her as she has rewarded us.

Proverbs 3:11-18 My son, despise not the chastening of the Lord; neither be weary of his correction: For whom the Lord loveth he correcteth; even as a father the son in whom he delighteth. Happy is the man that findeth wisdom, and the man that getteth understanding. For the merchandise of it is better than the merchandise of silver, and the gain thereof than fine gold. She is more precious than rubies: and all the things thou canst desire are not to be compared unto her. Length of days is in her right hand; and in her left hand riches and honour. Her ways are ways of pleasantness, and all her paths are peace. She is a tree of life to them that lay hold upon her: and happy is every one that retaineth her.

So, if people desire to remove their mark of the beast, they must receive the seal of God, so that it no longer eats the food that the 'Beast of the Earth' provide for man to eat.

Matthew 24:24 For there shall arise false Christs, and false prophets, and shall shew great signs and wonders; insomuch that, if it were possible, they shall deceive the very elect.

And thus they being the elect of God, cannot be deceived by the world's works and the words of men, no more.

Revelation 9:4 And it was commanded them that they should not hurt the grass of the earth, neither any green thing, neither any tree; but only those men which have not the seal of God in their foreheads.

Since again, it is their food that marks all people, and brings death to the spirit, leaving it blind to the things of the spirit, and bound to hell, which is life in the flesh. The seal of God in the forehead destroys that mark of the beast, which is also in the forehead.

Revelation 6:8 And I looked, and behold a pale horse: and his name that sat on him was Death, and Hell followed with him. And power was given unto them over the fourth part of the earth, to kill with sword, and with hunger, and with death, and with the beasts of the earth.
