Cleanse Your Temple

“Has this house, which is called by My name, become a den of robbers in your sight? Behold, I, even I, have seen it,” declares the LORD. Jeremiah 7:11

God was saying to the people of Israel, You act like your religious but your actions tell another story! They would go to Gods Temple and pretend to worship him, however at home they were burning incense to baal and sacrificing their children to molech

God will not be fooled or mocked, you cant pretend to be religious and walk with Satan. God wants to be worshiped in Spirit and Truth! The Holy Temple has become a Den of Thieves because of the corruption man

 

And He said to them, “It is written, ‘MY HOUSE SHALL BE CALLED A HOUSE OF PRAYER’; but you are making it a ROBBERS’ DEN.” Matthew 21:13

Jesus referenced this same scripture when cleaning the Holy Temple. Instead of the Temple being a place of worship, it became a marketplace, a shopping mall, for people to pretend they were religious. God will not be mocked!

What was Jesus reaction? He flipped over the tables, and drove out everyone who was defiling the Temple. Jesus was cleansing the Holy Temple, we need to cleanse our Temple also

 

Or do you not know that your body is a temple of the Holy Spirit who is in you, whom you have from God, and that you are not your own? 1 Corinthian 6:19

As a Christian, you are the Temple of God, the Holy Spirit lives inside of You! We need to keep our temples clean from sin and corruption. Be like Jesus, drive out the sin and temptation in your heart! Cleanse your Temple in Jesus Name Amen!

Revelation Chapter 18

After these things I saw another angel coming down from heaven, having great authority, and the earth was illumined with his glory. And he cried out with a mighty voice, saying, “Fallen, fallen is Babylon the great! She has become a dwelling place of demons and a prison of every unclean spirit, and a prison of every unclean and hateful bird. “For all the nations have drunk of the wine of the passion of her immorality, and the kings of the earth have committed acts of immorality with her, and the merchants of the earth have become rich by the wealth of her sensuality.” Revelation 18:1-3

Finally, Babylon has fallen! Finally the corrupted and evil religious and political system of Satan is destroyed. The world was drunk on her immorality and wealth, however God has brought that to an end. Because God is about to reestablish his perfect Kingdom, so all Sin and immorality must be removed first!

 

Babylon has been a golden cup in the hand of the LORD, Intoxicating all the earth. The nations have drunk of her wine; Therefore the nations are going mad. Jeremiah 51:7

I heard another voice from heaven, saying, “Come out of her, my people, so that you will not participate in her sins and receive of her plagues for her sins have piled up as high as heaven, and God has remembered her iniquities. Revelation 18:4-5

But notice God is still allowing people to Repent! Even after the partaking of all the horrible sins and immorality of Babylon, people can still “Come Out of Her” and Repent! The sins of Babylon are so great they are piled as high as the Heavens and God has not forgotten any of her Sins!

 

Flee from the midst of Babylon, And each of you save his life! Do not be destroyed in her punishment, For this is the LORD’S time of vengeance; He is going to render recompense to her. Jeremiah 51:6

“Pay her back even as she has paid, and give back to her double according to her deeds; in the cup which she has mixed, mix twice as much for her. To the degree that she glorified herself and lived sensuously, to the same degree give her torment and mourning; for she says in her heart, ‘I SIT as A QUEEN AND I AM NOT A WIDOW, and will never see mourning. For this reason in one day her plagues will come, pestilence and mourning and famine, and she will be burned up with fire; for the Lord God who judges her is strong. Revelation 18:6-8

God will judge the evil system of Babylon double for all her Sins and Immorality. Notice the arrogance of Babylon, saying “ I will never see mourning” this is a lie straight from Hell. Don’t fall for the deception of Babylon! Don’t fall for Satans lies to this world

“Their Redeemer is strong, the LORD of hosts is His name; He will vigorously plead their case So that He may bring rest to the earth, But turmoil to the inhabitants of Babylon. Jeremiah 50:34

And the kings of the earth, who committed acts of immorality and lived sensuously with her, will weep and lament over her when they see the smoke of her burning, standing at a distance because of the fear of her torment, saying, ‘Woe, woe, the great city, Babylon, the strong city! For in one hour your judgment has come.'”And the merchants of the earth weep and mourn over her, because no one buys their cargoes any more–cargoes of gold and silver and precious stones and pearls and fine linen and purple and silk and scarlet, and every kind of citron wood and every article of ivory and every article made from very costly wood and bronze and iron and marble, and cinnamon and spice and incense and perfume and frankincense and wine and olive oil and fine flour and wheat and cattle and sheep, and cargoes of horses and chariots and slaves and human lives. “The fruit you long for has gone from you, and all things that were luxurious and splendid have passed away from you and men will no longer find them. The merchants of these things, who became rich from her, will stand at a distance because of the fear of her torment, weeping and mourning, saying, ‘Woe, woe, the great city, she who was clothed in fine linen and purple and scarlet, and adorned with gold and precious stones and pearls; for in one hour such great wealth has been laid waste!’ And every shipmaster and every passenger and sailor, and as many as make their living by the sea, stood at a distance, and were crying out as they saw the smoke of her burning, saying, ‘What city is like the great city?'”And they threw dust on their heads and were crying out, weeping and mourning, saying, ‘Woe, woe, the great city, in which all who had ships at sea became rich by her wealth, for in one hour she has been laid waste!’ Revelation 18:9-19

The Entire world will mourn the collapse of Babylon! Why? Because the world is drunk off of her money, immorality, and luxury. This is why God tells you not to be part of this world. If you put your trust in your money, your career, your possessions, you are doomed. All of these things are temporary and cant save your soul. Only Jesus Christ can save your soul, you need to keep him first and world last.

Suddenly Babylon has fallen and been broken; Wail over her! Bring balm for her pain; Perhaps she may be healed. Jeremiah 51:8

Rejoice over her, O heaven, and you saints and apostles and prophets, because God has pronounced judgment for you against her.” Revelation 18:20

However Gods people rejoice over the destruction of Babylon. Because we know the Gods Kingdom is being restored soon. We know time is up for Satan and his followers. We know that justice and mercy will finally be served by the King of Kings and Lord of Lords!

 

Then heaven and earth and all that is in them Will shout for joy over Babylon, For the destroyers will come to her from the north,” Declares the LORD. Jeremiah 51:48

Then a strong angel took up a stone like a great millstone and threw it into the sea, saying, “So will Babylon, the great city, be thrown down with violence, and will not be found any longer. And the sound of harpists and musicians and flute-players and trumpeters will not be heard in you any longer; and no craftsman of any craft will be found in you any longer; and the sound of a mill will not be heard in you any longer; and the light of a lamp will not shine in you any longer; and the voice of the bridegroom and bride will not be heard in you any longer; for your merchants were the great men of the earth, because all the nations were deceived by your sorcery. Revelation 18:21-23

The destruction of Babylon is about to take place, and Babylon will never exist again! All the laughter and partying of the wicked are about to be turned into weeping and gnashing of teeth. Notice it says Satan used sorcery or witchcraft to deceive the world. Many of the common things of this world today, are rooted in witchcraft. Even drugs and pornography originated from witchcraft. Satans system is finally destroyed forever!

‘Moreover, I will take from them the voice of joy and the voice of gladness, the voice of the bridegroom and the voice of the bride, the sound of the millstones and the light of the lamp. Jeremiah 25:10

And in her was found the blood of prophets and of saints and of all who have been slain on the earth.” Revelation 18:24

The death of all the prophets and saints (Christians) are found due to Babylon (Satan). This wicked system is to rob, steal, and kill. This wicked system was created to deceive the world into following Satan, many without even knowing it. Make sure you stay separated from the world!

And do not be conformed to this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind, so that you may prove what the will of God is, that which is good and acceptable and perfect. Romans 12:2

 

Happy Veterans Day!

Greater love has no one than this, that one lay down his life for his friends. John 15:13

This weekend we celebrate Veterans Day, to honor our heroes past and present. My Father is a Vietnam Veteran who served 3 years in the Navy, I’m very proud of him for his sacrifice and service he gave to us and this country.

Jesus paid the ultimate sacrifice for us on the cross. Some would say Jesus was murdered, however this is not true, Jesus willingly laid down his life for us, to be the ransom for our sins. The ransom that has set us free from our sin so we may inherit eternal life. Notice Jesus calls us his “Friends”. Just as the song says “What a friend we have in Jesus” , he demonstrated his love towards us on the cross.

The original Greek word for Love is “Agape”. This word has a stronger meaning than we normally associate with the English word Love. Notice in the KJV translation they translate Agape as “Charity” that’s because Agape is a sacrificial Love, not a superficial Love that we are used to

We honor and thank our veterans because they have demonstrated their Agape towards us also. Any veteran that has served has sacrificed something. But because of them we have the freedom here in America. If you openly practice your religion, Thank a Veteran!, If you openly voice your opinions, Thank a Veteran! If you just voted the other day, Thank a Veteran! Its because of their sacrifice we have freedom

The same with Jesus Christ, its because of his sacrifice on the cross, that we have been freed from Sin and Death. We have ultimate freedom because of Jesus Christ!

Heavenly Father, we pray for all the Veterans today and their families, we pray you set them free from any bondage or chains they may be troubled with. We pray for the peace and strength of the Holy Spirit to tough their hearts in Jesus Name Amen!

Who Will Hear?

To whom shall I speak and give warning That they may hear? Behold, their ears are closed And they cannot listen. Behold, the word of the LORD has become a reproach to them; They have no delight in it. Jeremiah 6:10

God is trying to warn Israel about the destruction of Jerusalem, but nobody is listening. It says the Word of God has become offensive (reproach) to them, how similar is this to todays society? The Bible is continually being banned throughout the world, and recently the state of California is trying to pass a bill to ban the Bible!

It says the prophets and priests have all become greedy (6:13) Look at our prophets and pastors of today, “prosperity Gospel” is the big agenda being pushed by “Christianity” today raking in millions of millions of dollars, yet no one is repenting of their sins!

The false prophets were declaring “Peace, Peace” when there was no peace at all, Jerusalem was about to be destroyed by their enemies. The same with this world today, these false prophets and pastors selling you the “Prosperity Gospel” there is no prosperity here on Earth! It’s a total lie, this entire world is headed straight to hell, your only hope is the salvation of Jesus Christ!

“He who has ears to hear, let him hear. Matthew 11:15

Jesus said this over and over again, just as the same back in Israel. Gods people wont listen to truth, people have closed their ears to the truth. The Truth is this is not your best life now, the truth is we need to prepare for the return of the Lord, and prepare people for the pending judgement and destruction of this old Earth, until God establishes his New Kingdom Amen!

 

Revelation Chapter 17

Then one of the seven angels who had the seven bowls came and spoke with me, saying, “Come here, I will show you the judgment of the great harlot who sits on many waters, with whom the kings of the earth committed acts of immorality, and those who dwell on the earth were made drunk with the wine of her immorality.” Revelation 17:1-2

“The Whore of Babylon” the False and Evil Religious system that has deceived and corrupted the entire world, is about to come into judgement. We saw in the last chapter, that the support for Babylon has dried up. And the system of Babylon has fallen apart!

All the “Kings of The Earth” representing all the authority of the nations , were part of this religious and political corrupted system. They all were “drunk with her immorality” meaning they sold their souls to Satan for money and power. We actually see this a lot today in the “religious systems” its more about money than it is about God anymore

For what does it profit a man to gain the whole world, and forfeit his soul? Mark 8:36

And he carried me away in the Spirit into a wilderness; and I saw a woman sitting on a scarlet beast, full of blasphemous names, having seven heads and ten horns. The woman was clothed in purple and scarlet, and adorned with gold and precious stones and pearls, having in her hand a gold cup full of abominations and of the unclean things of her immorality, and on her forehead a name was written, a mystery, “BABYLON THE GREAT, THE MOTHER OF HARLOTS AND OF THE ABOMINATIONS OF THE EARTH.” Revelation 17:3-5

Here we see the symbolism of “The Whore of Babylon” who is the symbolic representation of the corrupted religious system. Babylon is sitting on a “scarlet beast” which is obviously Satan. The corrupted system is fueled and influenced by Satan himself to deceive the masses and destroy souls

Notice her cup is full of abominations, the sins and immorality of this fake religious system is great, including the death and persecution of Christians.

For the mystery of lawlessness is already at work; only he who now restrains will do so until he is taken out of the way. 2 Thessalonian 2:7

And I saw the woman drunk with the blood of the saints, and with the blood of the witnesses of Jesus. When I saw her, I wondered greatly. And the angel said to me, “Why do you wonder? I will tell you the mystery of the woman and of the beast that carries her, which has the seven heads and the ten horns. Revelation 17:6-7

We see here “Babylon” is responsible for the death and persecution of many Christians. The interesting thing here is the Apostle John says “When I saw her, I wondered greatly”. This could possibly mean that the deception of this fake religious system “Babylon” was not so obvious. Satan is a master at deception, beware of the false prophets and false churches

“Many false prophets will arise and will mislead many. Matthew 24:11

The beast that you saw was, and is not, and is about to come up out of the abyss and go to destruction. And those who dwell on the earth, whose name has not been written in the book of life from the foundation of the world, will wonder when they see the beast, that he was and is not and will come. Revelation 17:8

The world is about to see Satan be thrown into the Lake of Fire for final punishment. Notice those whos names are not in the “Book of Life” will join Satan in the Lake of Fire. Many people will be in “awe” or “wonder” as they see this mighty false religious and pollical system totally destroyed by God Almighty

 

May they be blotted out of the book of life And may they not be recorded with the righteous. Psalm 69:28

Here is the mind which has wisdom. The seven heads are seven mountains on which the woman sits, and they are seven kings; five have fallen, one is, the other has not yet come; and when he comes, he must remain a little while. Revelation 17:9-10

The Angel is explaining this vision to the Apostle John. Most commonly people associate the 7 Mountains with Rome. However since most or all of Revelation is symbolic, I believe the mountains represent power and authority. The 7 mountains are the 7 Kings/Leaders/ect. that represented the Satanic system of Babylon.

Its revealed another leader is yet to come and they will be in power for a little while. I believe this is futuristic as the majority of Revelation is

The beast which was and is not, is himself also an eighth and is one of the seven, and he goes to destruction. “The ten horns which you saw are ten kings who have not yet received a kingdom, but they receive authority as kings with the beast for one hour. These have one purpose, and they give their power and authority to the beast. Revelation 17:11-13

Satan is making one final push before his total destruction. He’s aligning all his nations that he deceived into following him and doing his dirty work. However as we know the ending wont be pretty for Satan and all his followers

‘As for the ten horns, out of this kingdom ten kings will arise; and another will arise after them, and he will be different from the previous ones and will subdue three kings. Daniel 7:24

 

These will wage war against the Lamb, and the Lamb will overcome them, because He is Lord of lords and King of kings, and those who are with Him are the called and chosen and faithful.” Revelation 17:14

As scary as the book of Revelation can get at times, we can always have comfort and hope knowing we serve the King of Kings and Lord of Lords! Our God always reigns!

which He will bring about at the proper time– He who is the blessed and only Sovereign, the King of kings and Lord of lords, 1 Timothy 6:15

And he said to me, “The waters which you saw where the harlot sits, are peoples and multitudes and nations and tongues. And the ten horns which you saw, and the beast, these will hate the harlot and will make her desolate and naked, and will eat her flesh and will burn her up with fire. For God has put it in their hearts to execute His purpose by having a common purpose, and by giving their kingdom to the beast, until the words of God will be fulfilled. The woman whom you saw is the great city, which reigns over the kings of the earth.” Revelation 17:15-18

Jesus has defeated Babylon and the world has turned on the “Whore of Babylon” , Time is running out for the wicked people and they finally realized their false religion is a total sham. When faithless people get desperate , what do they do? They turn on each other. This is what God ordained to happen to Satans wicked empire

 

“If a kingdom is divided against itself, that kingdom cannot stand. Mark 3:24
