New Jerusalem - Part 9
Now let's read a few descriptive phrases of that man of sin. Then
we will present you with some thoughts that might be quite different than
you have ever considered before, about what the "man of sin" could be.
And how this prophecy about him could be fulfilled and is perhaps being
fulfilled right now at the present time. While most of the world, in fact,
most of Christendom is ignorant of its fulfillment. However, the people
of Christendom, of course, will eventually be appraised of its fulfillment.
They will have to be so that he can be revealed to them, so that the prophecy
can be completely fulfilled.
In verse 3 he is called the son of perdition. The word perdition
is the Greek word "Apoleia" which means "destruction." (#684 Strong's Exhaustive
Concordance) So in other words the "son of perdition" is the "son of destruction"
or the cause of destruction.
In verse 4, "Who opposeth and exalteth himself above all that
is called God, or that is worshiped; so that he as God sitteth in the temple
of God, shewing himself that he is God."
This phrase "sitteth in the temple of God" has fooled many. Since
all Bible Students and Ministers know that there is no stone Temple of
God anymore as the Romans destroyed the one in Palestine in A.D. 70, some
have tried to say, "this cannot come to pass until someone rebuilds a stone
temple, to God in Jerusalem again." Which in itself opens up all sorts
of speculations about how the Jews will rebuild the old temple and then
this great anti-Christ will come and sit in it; and take over the rulership
of the world, and be worshiped while he is in that great new temple.
But what is the Temple of God? What could truly be called the
Temple of God by Paul, a Christian Israelite, writing to the Thessalonians.
Well, every Israelite should know, but most do not. "Know ye not that ye
are the temple of God, and that the Spirit of God dwelleth in you? If any
man defile (which is the Greek word 'Phtheiro' from 'Phthio' which means
'to ruin' or 'destroy' (#5351 Strong's Exhaustive Concordance)) the temple
of God, him shall God destroy; for the temple of God is holy, which temple
ye are." (1 Corinthians 3:16-17)
Then we find, "What? know ye not that your body is the temple
of the Holy Ghost." (1 Corinthians 6:19) Then in Second Corinthians Six
Paul is exhorting believers to separate themselves from unbelievers and
from infidels as he writes, "And what agreement hath the temple of God
with idols? for ye are the temple of the living God." (2 Corinthians 6:16)
Then he explains, "as God hath said, I will dwell in them, and walk in
Paul is quoting God's statement to the Israelites through the
prophets Moses, Isaiah, Jeremiah, Ezekiel and others that God would dwell
in Israel. Today, we have so little preaching on the true identity of Israel
that most do not realize that God does really "dwell in Israel." Most Christians
realize they cannot say in truth that God dwells in Palestine, or among
the people called Jews because the Jews reject Jesus.
And to say that God dwells among them would fly in the face of
New Testament teachings. So most Ministers ignore the multitude of promises
and prophecies made by God to Israel, That He would always be the God of
Israel and that He would dwell in and among them. They do see that God
is in Christendom but they do not relate that to the truth; that these
Anglo-Saxons, Germanic, Scandinavian, Celtic and Kindred Christians: Are
Israelites. In Ephesians, speaking of the whole congregation of believers
collectively as the household of God. Paul says, "In whom all the building
fitly framed together groweth unto an holy temple in the Lord: In whom
ye also are builded together for an habitation of God through the Spirit."
So the Temple of God is in a partial sense each individual believer.
In a collective sense, the whole household of Christian Israel. With this
in mind we then ask: Where would the man of sin sit; Where he would masquerade
as God and be worshiped, as God, in the Temple of God? It is obvious, that
he would sit in the hearts and minds of a deluded and deceived Israel People,
who think they are worshiping the Divine One, when in reality, they are
worshiping an entity called in Second Thessalonians Two "that man of sin...the
son of perdition."
The man of sin could be, and you think carefully about it and
see if it makes sense to you. The man of sin could be a false Christ. Remember
that Jesus warned in Matthew Twenty Four when the disciples asked about
the signs of the end of the world (age). Jesus said that many would come
in His name, or in the name of Jesus Christ and would deceive many. He
also gave as another sign in verse 24, "that there shall arise false Christs."
This character in Second Thessalonians Two is called the man of
sin. The word sin means the transgression of the law, according to 1 John
3:4. So the man of sin is therefore, a man of transgression of the law.
If a person, professing to worship Christ claims that "his" christ has
put away God's Law and that there is no need for him to obey the Law, then
he is believing in and worshiping a christ of sin.
A christ of transgression of the Law, or a "man of sin." Consider
it another way. If a person believes that "his" christ is going to come
and snatch him off the earth and take him to heaven, and then turn the
earth over to the wicked; And if that is false doctrine, a lie, and it
can be easily proven so, then that person believes in and worships a Jesus
who is not the real Jesus of the Bible.
He is worshiping a false christ, one who has attributes which
the true Jesus does not have. And one who is to do things which the real
Jesus of the Bible will not do. He is, in deed, and, in fact, worshiping
a "man of sin." And that man of sin, that false god is in that person,
in the Temple of God and is being worshiped as God.
To fulfill Second Thessalonians Two there is no need to for any
one person or any false god to go into a Stone Temple over in Old Palestine.
Second Thessalonians Two can be fulfill by the simple fact that thousands
or millions of God's people worship as God, someone who is not the real
Jesus. Paul gave in 1 Corinthians 10:12 a warning to Christian Israelites,
"Wherefore let him that thinketh he standeth take heed lest he fall."
We implore you, today, to examine your Christ. Is He the one of
the Bible, or is He a false Christ? Put into your mind by false prophets
teaching false doctrines. Are you worshiping the true Jesus of the Bible
or are you worshiping the man of sin? Thus, as many of you know, Babylon
is a false religion. And if any part of our people are captive of, or under
a false religion, a false Christ, then they are captive of Babylon are
But repeating again, our major interest in spending this time
on Second Thessalonians Two, was to prove to you that whatever, or whoever
the man of sin is he must be revealed. He must be exposed, he must be made
known to God's people before Christ's return.
Now let us return to exposing what it is which has captivated
our people; religiously, economically, politically, socially and in all
phases of our national life. It is called in the Bible "Babylon." And it
is described so that we can see it and understand it. In Micah God said
Zion or end time Israel, in her new land, would be held captive under Babylon.
Then in Revelation 15 and 16, we saw that Babylon was to be divided into
three parts. And we believe, that great city, which reigneth over the kings
(governments) of the earth is something which rules the rulers of the earth;
obviously from behind the scenes, but is the ruler nevertheless. And it
is obvious, that for this prophetic Babylon to capture prophetic Zion;
Prophetic Zion must of necessity be on the earth, not in some faraway Heaven.
For we absolutely refuse to credit some earthly power with being strong
enough to threaten the Heavenly abode of Almighty God Himself.
New Jerusalem - Part 10
Therefore, the Zion of prophecy is a place here on the earth.
And we have previously identified that prophetic Zion as Christian America.
When the sixth angel poured out his vial upon the great river Euphrates,
in Revelation 16:12, it was followed by the three unclean spirits (three
parts of Babylon) in verse 13. Which went forth in verse 14; "unto the
kings of the earth and of the whole world, to gather them to the battle
of that great day of God Almighty."
In verse 16 the place of their gathering was a place "called in
the Hebrew tongue Armageddon." Then as John saw the gathering of the kings
of the earth, but before the battle, in verse 17, he saw as "the seventh
angel poured out his vial into the air." and followed in verse 18 by "voices,
and thunders, and lightnings; and there was a great earthquake, such as
was not since men were upon the earth, so mighty an earthquake, and so
great." Then finally "great Babylon" is mentioned. For the first time in
this long passage and only the second time in the Book of Revelation. Its
previous mention was in Chapter 14:8.
Here in Revelation 16:19 it says: "And the great city was divided
into three parts, and the cities of the nations fell: and great Babylon
came in remembrance before God, to give unto her the cup of the wine of
the fierceness of his wrath." This implies destruction in part and perhaps
in its entirety, but in any case God's wrath is shown here to be directed
against "great Babylon." It would appear obvious that this "Babylon" is
currently in existence on the earth now and we believe the earthquake which
divided Babylon into three parts has already taken place. That it is past
history and that it was not a physical quake of the planet earth as some
In Revelation 17:18 the angel told John Babylon the great is "that
great city, which reigneth over the kings of the earth." And to put it
another way, great Babylon is the Ruler of the Rulers. And just before
it is destroyed it will be divided into three parts. Which we have already
described as being (1) Russia and its control in Asia, Eastern Europe and
parts of Africa. (2) China and its sphere of control in Asia, including
India, Southeast Asia and parts of Africa. (3) The Western Hemisphere and
Western Europe with the Rulers of the United States being the dominating
force in those areas.
However, the co-operation of these super powers is still mostly
hidden from the view of the people of the world. But millions of Americans
are beginning to suspect that the great words of criticisms and anger,
which pass publicly between three governments, and which is so prominently
displayed in the news media are really all part of a staged show for the
Many now suspect that the rulers of America only pretend enmity
towards the rulers of Russia and China. And that the rulers of Russia only
pretend enmity towards the rulers of China and the United States. For they
are beginning to realize that there is no major activity by any of the
three governments which are in anyway damaging to the rulers of the other
Although thousands, yes even millions of people die in so-called
wars between these super-powers, such as Korea, Southeast Asia and now
in several wars in Africa and South America. The ruling powers of these
three major governments remain intact and grows ever stronger, but never
Think about it, although some seem to be at cross purposes with
others and even carry on so-called wars with each other in which their
own people are killed the men who make up those ruling governments remain
untouched. During Korea have you never wondered why, if America wanted
to defeat the enemy, would it allow one of its greatest Generals to be
sent home just because he was in the process of defeating the enemy? General
Douglas MacArthur was not under the control of the American President while
he served in Korea.
He was under the control of the United Nations. And it was they
who fired him and not President Harry S. Truman. He was fired because he
broke the back of the North Korean Army when he launched the Inchon Harbor
invasion. And he could have destroyed the invading Chinese Army with just
one atomic bomb.
Oh one could say well we could not use the bomb because our men
were too close to the blast area. Well tests were even then taking place
in New Mexico with American troops much closer to the blast area than they
would have been in Korea. The bomb would have saved thousands of American
and other nationals soldiers, putting the Communist expansion plans back
a hundred years and maybe more. Perhaps even destroying it one and for
Who was so powerful that they could control our military to such
an extent that they could actually cost America thousands of its best men
in a no-win military action? Who kept our navy and air force from destroying
the enemies war making potential and food supplies? That the United Nations
rules over the United States would be obvious to the American people if
they would only think about what has been told them by men in government.
Even the various Presidents such as Truman and etc.
President Truman in 1951 after he announced the war in Korea and
moved our American troops there, announced to the people of the United
States that the United States was fighting a war (police action) under
the orders of the United Nations.
When General MacArthur, other military leaders and several Congressmen
called upon the President to carry the war into North Korea and defeat
them and end the war. President Truman informed them and the people of
America he could not do such a thing because he had to obey the mandates
of the United Nations. That this was a "United Nations Police Action."
In other words the President of the United States was admitting that he
had a ruler above him. A ruler that he was required to obey. And he admitted
it, although most Americans did not understand nor realize just what he
was admitting to. Twelve years later when President Johnson ordered several
hundred thousand American teenagers to be shipped to South Vietnam, to
begin a war there, he stated publicly that we, American troops, were going
to South Vietnam to carry out the terms of the SETO Treaty. The full name
of which was the Southeast Treaty Organization, a branch of the United
The American military was ordered to fight, to kill and be killed,
but never to win under orders from the United Nations. Two hundred and
fifty thousand American men were killed or maimed for life in Southeast
Asia during that insane United Nations Controlled war.
Who gave the orders that prevented them from winning, and in many
cases, from even defending themselves unless they were fired upon by the
enemy. Well most Americans believe that it was President Johnson and later
President Nixon, but what was the original source of the orders: The United
Nations, something that rules, quietly from behind the scenes, almost all
of the nations of the world, in including our own.
Recently Americans were surprised to see their own government,
or at least what they believed to be their own government, transfer American
Territory, the Panama Canal Zone, to a Communist dominated foreign government;
Panama. What they did not realize that the U.S. had not controlled the
Panama Canal for many years. For if America had really controlled it during
the Korean and the Vietnam Wars, would it have made sense that the American
Government would have allowed cargo and war ships of their enemies to pass
New Jerusalem - Part 11
Yet, that is exactly what happened. Russian, English, French and
others ships regularly passed through it carrying war supplies to the North
Vietnamese Army to kill our American Men, during the Vietnam War. Not only
that, the United States Government was ordered by the United Nations not
to blockade the only sea port in North Vietnam, that being Haiphong. And
the U.S. rulers obeyed those orders! Scores of American Battleships and
several Aircraft carriers sat out in the China Sea off Vietnam for eight
long years during the war, prohibited by United Nations orders from firing
a shot or interfering with Any ship bringing food and war materials to
Oh, they made a pretense of mining the harbor, but were soon forced
to remove the mines by other orders from the United Nations. Several multi-national
gas and oil companies sold gas, diesel and other fuel along with munitions
to both North Vietnam and the United States and delivered their products
in time of war without interference from either side!
During the Vietnam war literally thousands of American ships docked
in Saigon and at Da Nang, and at any one time from a dozen to a score of
them would be in the harbors. Although the Viet Cong guerrillas had 120
MM Russian rockets, which they launched with regularity into the residential
areas of Saigon and Da Nang, from the Mekong Delta; not once did those
rockets strike any of the ships docked in the harbors of Saigon or Da Nang.
Not once did any of those rockets strike the hundreds of warehouses that
were used to house the war supplies. Not once did those rockets strike
any of the United States or South Vietnam Government buildings in Saigon,
nor did they strike any of the Oil storage depots.
Those Russian made (and American taxpayers financed) Vietnamese
rockets killed only American soldiers and South Vietnamese civilians. But
the supplies to carry on the war had safe passage and safe storage afforded
by both sides. Who was it that commanded the Viet Cong not to hit the ships
in the Saigon or Da Nang harbors or docks, or any of the government buildings,
nor any of the oil and gasoline storage depots? Was it the same ones who
ordered the American forces to not strike the North Vietnamese harbor,
docks, government buildings, nor any of the gasoline storage depots, nor
any of the ships that were bringing war supplies to the enemy?
Who was it that commanded the American Air Force not to use the
carpet and systematic bombing which proved so successful during World War
II against the Germans? Who was it that commanded the American Air Force
not to bomb the dams in the northern part of North Vietnam which would
have destroyed completely the food supply for the Vietnamese Army and the
North Vietnamese people, thus making it impossible for them to carry on
the war, which would have saved countless American lives? Who was it that
ordered the American Air Force to bomb the jungles and mountain sides which
inflicted minimal casualties upon the enemy? In ten years of warfare only
ONE U.S. Government building was damaged, and that was during the Tiet
Offensive, and by only 10 Viet Cong who were quickly rounded up and killed.
Thousands of United States Government officials walked the streets of Saigon
for ten years almost at will and the Viet Cong guerrillas left them strictly
alone. During that same time the Viet Cong killed tens of thousands of
American Troops. And this, almost unbelievable condition continued for
almost ten years. Yet the mental condition of the American people, is such,
even today, most of them do not realize that such a condition could exist
only if the rulers of both sides had a prior agreement as to who or what
could, and who or what could not be destroyed before the conflict was even
Who was it that commanded to kill only U.S. soldiers and not U.S.
Government officials? Was it the same power which prevented the American
Air Force from bombing North Vietnam? Was it the same power which, even
today, prevents America from protecting itself from the holocaust of a
The news media which reflected the dead and wounded on our television
screens every night, and pictures on the front page of our newspapers every
day, of almost ten years of that war have very little time, if any, to
depict or report upon the terrible butchery which the liberals of America
caused to be inflicted upon the people of South Vietnam, Cambodia and Laos.
They never, but never, showed pictures of people killed by the
Communist butchers, but they wring their hands and cry out to high heaven
whenever a Communist or some other enemy of America is killed, and depict
it has a heinous crime against humanity, if an American happens to come
out on top of a conflict with them.
It has been reported that almost 500,000 million Africans have
been killed by the Communists and Cuban troops in Africa, and a picture
of the deaths of these who have been murdered by them is almost never shown
on an American Television, magazine or newspaper. But if an American or
White South African happens to kill a Communist in defense of his life,
family or property, it is in every newspaper, magazine and on every television
set in America.
Russia, Cuba and China operate at will in Africa and what is the
United Nations doing about it. Well a spokesman for the United Nations
announced that they would impose an oil embargo upon South Africa, but
not one single peep about any sanctions or embargoes upon Russia, Cuba
or China. The United Nations in its some 47 years of existence has yet
to inflict a single incident or action that has resulted in a detrimental
action against the rulers of the Communist Nations. Oh, there have been
literally millions of people killed in so-called anti-Communist conflicts,
but there has been nothing that has happened that would interfere with
the actions of the rulers of the Communist Nations at all. But, in fact,
its every action has been against every country or government in the world
that would not bow its knees before the great god of the Communists/Zionist/Jewish
one-worlders; The United Nations.
It is even know working day and night against the only nation
left in the world who opposes its domination of the world and its countries,
that country is South Africa. And American foreign policy is being directed
toward that same end. To the overthrow of White South Africa, while ignoring
and openly aiding Russia and China in their assault of the other nations
of Africa. The three parts of Mystery Babylon are operating in concert,
and the cities of nations are falling, just as the verse said. And the
islands and the mountains (nations) are disappearing. Is it possible; that
there is more to the United Nations than we have been led to believe? But
instead is a visible part of an otherwise invisible world-government, which
already controls almost every country and ruler on the earth.
Is it possible; that if we could we see the rest of the this control
force and mechanism, we could then read the rest of Revelation 17 and 18
and say: "Eureka, I have found it, I have found Mystery Babylon the mother
of harlots and the abominations of the earth."
Is it possible; that pro United Nations propaganda and church
doctrine, such as the Rapture theory and the future anti-Christ, are really
falsehoods of Babylon designed to cover-up the truth of an existence of
anti-Christ world government already exists. And to keep her hidden from
those she has captured already and those she is about to capture. In the
second chapter of Zechariah the prophet tells of seeing an Angel with a
measuring line, who said that he was measuring Jerusalem. In Revelation
21, where John saw a vision of what he called the New Jerusalem, said in
verse 15, "And he that talked with me had a golden reed to measure the
New Jerusalem - Part 12
Other similarities in the two visions that one can see that both
men were writing of the same Jerusalem <New Jerusalem> Prophetic Jerusalem,
and not the old historical city. That New Jerusalem was a land, a great
nation, to be inhabited by the regathered tribes of Israel, is made plain
in such verses Zechariah 2:4, where we read, "Jerusalem shall be inhabited
as towns without walls for the multitude of men and cattle therein."
In the first chapter God says in verse 14, "I am jealous for Jerusalem
and for Zion with a great jealousy." Then in verse 17, "My cities through
prosperity shall yet be spread abroad." In chapter two verse 6, God said
of this Jerusalem; "I have spread you abroad as the four winds of the heaven."
This was fulfilled in the driving out of the Israel people from
Old Canaan Land several hundred years before Christ and their dispersion
into the then vacant continent of Europe where they were to become the
great nations of Christendom. When they were scatter over Europe they lost
their name of Israel and later became known generally to historians as
Isaac's Sons or Saxons. With divisions such as Angles, Celts, Germans,
Scandinavians and other kindred people.
As you read the foregoing and the following expos� you
will come to understand that we believe that the Israel people have been
regathered right here in the United States and that America is the city
and the nation called by the name of New Jerusalem and by the name of Zion
in prophecy. Of course many of our Israel people still live in England,
the Western Nations of Europe, Australia, New Zealand, South Africa and
Canada. That they have been here off and on for thousands of years in response
to God's Word in 2 Samuel 7:10, and 1 Chronicles 17:9.
But we are now primarily concerned with the prophecy that this
New Jerusalem, this Zion of Bible Prophecy, would be captured and conquered
by an alien force or power, called in the Bible - Babylon.
In the very next verse in Zechariah two God speaks to this New
Jerusalem, "Deliver thyself, O Zion, that dwellest WITH the daughter of
And in Micah four, verse 10 God said to Zion, "thou shalt go even
to Babylon; there shalt thou be delivered; there the Lord shall redeem
thee from the hand of thine enemies." These and many others make it plain
prophetic Zion would be captured by prophetic Babylon.
Now lets go on in the Book of Revelation and see if we can recognize
Mystery Babylon the Great from the descriptions as shown in chapter 16,
17 and 18. We finished through verse 20 of Revelation 16 where Babylon
was divided into three parts and the cities and the governments were falling.
And every Island fled away and the mountains were not found; This is symbolic
language for countries and nations. They are disappearing as independent
states and are being absorbed or swallowed up into one or the other of
the three parts of Babylon; One part of Babylon represented by Russia,
which rules Western Asia and Eastern Europe is at this moment waging war
against several parts of Africa at this very moment; Whether the American
people are aware of it or not. Meanwhile Red China, a second part of Babylon
is solidifying its control upon the sub-continent of Asia. With Hong Kong
soon to become part of China again as England has agreed to give up its
control of it in the very near future. The third part of Babylon, the Western
European Nations, including the United States is co-operating completely
with those conquests.
Verse 21 is a strange one, "And there fell upon men a great hail
out of heaven, every stone about the weight of a talent: and men blasphemed
God because of the plague of the hail; for the plague thereof was exceeding
This vision that John saw is often taught as if it will be real
hail; frozen water which will fall from heaven. But remember, although
John may have seen hail stones in the vision, like the other parts of his
visions, each of these things was representative of something else.
New Jerusalem - Part 13
The previous verses about the islands fleeing and the mountains
not being found, certainly is not going to be fulfill by real islands getting
up out of the water and running away on supernatural legs. Nor by the disappearance
of all the mountains on the earth. No, islands and mountains in prophecy
stands for small and larger nations. And water in the Bible represents
the Word of God, or the living water which would come from Christ.
In Ephesians 5 Paul writes of Christs love for the Church in verses
25 and 26, "Husbands love your wives, even as Christ also loved the church,
and gave himself for it; That he might sanctify and cleanse it with the
washing of water by the word."
Gods' Word washes and cleanses people, but in Revelation 16:21
that water is frozen; it is in the form of hail; it cannot wash, it cannot
cleanse, it can only cause hurt and cause immense pain. And many of the
doctrines and teachings of Organized Religion today is like frozen water.
Although they quote God's Word and present it as God's Word, they are handled
deceitfully and in error; it cannot be drunk, it cannot be absorbed and
it is in a form which brings about blasphemy against God.
Now it says that these hail stones fell upon men from heaven,
which would indicate that God was the source of them, and it is true that
Almighty God will send false doctrines to men who will not accept His Truths.
Second Thessalonians 2:10-11 reads, "because they received not the love
of the truth, that they might be saved. And for this cause God shall send
them strong delusion, that they should believe a lie."
And it is obvious to any that will only open their eyes and see
that many are being sent strong delusions; for many do believe lies and
many do blaspheme God. So the hail of Revelation 16:21 would be, in effect,
God's Word being rained upon wicked men in such a way that they will not
believe it nor understand it; But instead blaspheme God.
To show that this is true, we have an example in Matthew 13 where
Jesus told His disciples that He taught in parables so that SOME people
would not understand Him. Now, there is one remedy for the frozen Word:
Get away from Ministers who freeze or hide God's Word by mis-teaching it.
God's Ministers are to make the Word plain and teach it in truth. Paul
said in Hebrews that God's Ministers are to be made, "a flame of fire,"
(Hebrews 1:7), and Fire will unfreeze God's Word.
Let's go on into the next chapter, Chapter 17 of Revelation. Please
remember that these chapter divisions were not in the original text. The
text was first divided into chapters and verses when the Geneva Bible was
translated in the fifteen hundreds and it was done so for ease of reference.
So Revelation 17 is a continuation of Revelation 15 and 16. The vision
of the seven angels with the seven golden vials of God's wrath to be poured
out upon the earth. After John saw the hail, we read in Revelation 17:1,
"And there came one of the seven angels which had the seven vials, and
talked with me, saying unto me, Come hither; I will shew unto thee the
judgment of the great whore that sitteth upon many waters." The angel is
now going to show John the judgment, or the punishment, or the end of the
great whore. Called in verse 5 "Mystery, Babylon The Great." Remember,
Babylon the Great Whore is Already Here when these things are going on.
John does not see Babylon arriving upon the scene. In fact, if you will
check quite closely you will find that the Book of Revelation does not
announce the arrival or the rise of Babylon at all.
Only what she is doing and her end. So she is not something that
arises on the scene during the seven last plagues she is already there
when the scene begins. The angel said to John, "Come hither; I will shew
unto thee the judgment of the great whore that sitteth upon many waters:
With whom the kings of the earth have committed fornication, and the inhabitants
of the earth have been made drunk with the wine of her fornication. 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." Here again is being demonstrated the utter impossibility
of these visions being fulfilled literally. We will not be looking for
some woman, dressed in red, riding upon a red beast having seven heads.
No, this is symbolic for something else. "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, MYSTERY,
BABYLON THE GREAT, THE MOTHER OF HARLOTS AND ABOMINATIONS OF THE EARTH."
And now we wish you to listen, and read very very carefully to
the next verse. Especially those of you who have been taught that Christians
will not be on the earth when these last chapters of the Book of Revelation
are being fulfilled. Verse 6 of Revelation 17, still speaking of the woman
arrayed in purple and scarlet - mystery Babylon the great, "And I saw the
woman drunken with the blood of the martyrs of Jesus: and when I saw her,
I wondered with great admiration."
Now that last word there does not mean that John looked upon her
with favor, as the original Greek word means to look closely or to be in
awe. And we can imagine that if we had seen such a vision that we would
have looked upon it in awe also. But the woman was drunk with what? With
the blood of the saints and with the blood of the martyrs of Jesus.
Whatever this woman in scarlet is She is A Killer of Christians!
That is obvious because she is drunken with the blood of the saints and
with the blood of the martyrs of Jesus. This woman arrayed in purple and
scarlet to be judged here, during the time of the seventh vial or the last
plague upon the earth, was seen by John to have killed so many Christians
he could describe here in no other way than to say that she was drunken
with their blood. In verse 18 the angel told John, "And the woman which
thou sawest is that great city which reigneth over the kings of the earth."
So we can see clearly that she is the world ruling power. She kills Christians
and in the last verse of Revelation 18, after she is destroyed, God says;
"And in her was found the blood of prophets, and of saints, and of all
that were slain upon the earth."
Now we have said several times that this world ruling power called
Babylon is here on the earth today. It is not some future thing! She is
already working her awesome murders upon the Christian people in most of
the nations of the earth. And she is guilty of the death of not only Christians
but of the death of all that has been slain upon the earth.
That God's people would be in Babylon, captured by her as it were,
is obvious by the call of God to his people in Revelation 18:4, "Come out
of her, my people, that ye be not partakers of her sins, and that ye receive
not of her plagues." Which produces the following question: Why would God
be so foolish as to call for His people to come out of Babylon, in Revelation
18, if the ministers, the Clergy of Organized Religion are correct in their
Rapture Doctrine, when they say all the Christians will be gone when these
passages are fulfilled? No, God's people have not only been captured by
Babylon, as we read in Micah 4:10, but Babylon is responsible for
the death of many of them.
New Jerusalem - Part 14 (Last
Let's recount a little history, actually recent history, which
has occurred in the lifetime of the older people, and at least partiality
known to all. The Red Bolsheviks (Communist Jews) conquered the 16 territories
of Russia and Siberia between 1917 and 1921. By 1931 they had put to death
at least twenty million (20,000,000) people, most of whom were Christians,
and at least that many more were in slave camps. Every Christian Bible,
to their knowledge, in Russia was burned or destroyed; every Christian
Church was closed; every Christian Minister was either killed or placed
in the slave labor camps in Siberia. And that process has been repeated
in every nation taken over by the Communist, although it has not been reported
upon by the Jew owned news media in America. The same people who claim
their color is red, just the color of the woman and the beast in Revelation
17 and 18.
The Christians in Russia were not Raptured; the Christians of
Armenia, Azerbidjhan, Byelorussia, Georgia, Kazakh, Kirghy, Ukraine, Uzbe,
Turkmen, Estonia, Latvia, Lithunia and none of the subsequent nations taken
over by the Communist were Raptured; the Christians of China were not Raptured,
nor were the some ten million (10,000,000) Protestant Christians murdered
by the Roman Catholic Church before and after the inquisition were not
Raptured. It has been admitted by at least one of the Clergy of Organized
Religion that most of the Christians of China have been murdered. The Christians
of Cuba were not Raptured, however, some of them did escape in small boats
before Castro's power become complete.
During the Vietnam War another war was began and ended in Africa
with little if any American news coverage. The war against the Ible Tribe
by the Nigerians. Britain, Russia and the Jewish Israelis armed eighty
thousand (80,000) Nigerian troops and in two years they had killed or starved
to death one million (1,000,000) of the six million Ible people. Our rulers
and our news media remained silent as did most of the radio and television
When it was almost over, Newsweek Magazine ran a one page article
on it, casually commenting upon the one million who had died, and saying
that the Ibles were the only Negro tribe in Africa who had adopted Christianity
as the official religion of the tribe. Just think of it, one million Negro
professing Christians slaughter by arms from a combination of Britain,
Russia and Israel and most Americans never even heard of it!
At the end of the Vietnam War when the red butchers of North Vietnam
swept in upon the helpless people of South Vietnam and Cambodia refugees
who escaped later told of the systematic murder of every individual who
was a Christian and everyone who, to their knowledge, had been friendly
to a Christian or Christian Missionaries.
In the first weeks, after the Communist takeover, red murder squads
went into every Christian orphanage in South Vietnam and shot to death
every baby there, to eliminate what they called contamination. As you know,
thousands of South Vietnamese did escape by themselves, or with the Americans
in those last desperate days of the collapse of South Vietnam. In America
many Ministers did join together in a relief effort to provide food and
clothes for the refugees.
In many cases they even helped bring them to America and settle
them here. Strangely enough, or perhaps not so strangely even while some
were helping Christian refugees from the Communist slaughter, others went
right on preaching about how American Christians would never suffer such
things, but would be Raptured off the earth before any tribulation came.
As Jesus said in Matthew 6:23, about such men; "If therefore the light
that is in thee be darkness, how great is that darkness!" Being blinded
by their own false doctrine, they could not see the tribulation being enacted
right before their eyes. And still the slaughter and the horror in Southeast
Asia goes on without abatement, without comment by the American news media,
the American Government or the American Clergy of Organized Religion.
Lord Elton, British Tory spokesman for foreign affairs, stated
in the English Parliament; "Of all the regimes which the fugitives left
behind the most ferocious is in Cambodia. In 1975 the country had seven
million (7,000,000) inhabitants and since the Khmer Rouge took over more
than one and one-half million (1,500,000) have died of execution or starvation."
He further said; "The policy is the destruction of all ties with the past
and with the outside world except China."
Vietnam has since found out the same thing. The so-called Communist
conquest was in actuality a conquest of Red China, one of the parts of
Mystery Babylon. Who is ruling America? Is it the people of America? Or
has the United States, unknown by its citizens, been captured by that thing
known in the Bible as Mystery Babylon? Since 1918 the Red anti-Christ have
almost swept parts of Asia and Eastern Europe clean of Christians.
They are now working to either kill or drive out all of the Christians
in Africa. Aided in their criminal pursuits by the rulers of our own beloved
America. And still the teaching of the Rapture grows and spreads. It is
almost unbelievable to those of us who study God's Word and recognize from
it the present tribulation which the blind cannot see. But think God, as
we read Revelation 17 and 18 we are not reading of the rise of this great
anti-Christ world power, we are reading of its judgment or its end, its
total destruction. And as Babylon become visible to our people, they will
be seeing its termination, its final death throes. As God moves to bring
it to judgment and destruction.
In fact, all of the Bible teaches it will be the wicked which
will be removed from the earth, not the Christians or the Saints. The so-called
Rapture Doctrine, like all false doctrines has the truth turned upside
down and backwards.
