Come Out of Babylon - Spiritually

 

“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” – (Rev.18:4,5).

“Be ye not unequally yoked together with unbelievers: for what fellowship hath righteousness with unrighteousness? And what communion hath light with darkness? And what concord hath Christ with Belial? Or what part hath he that believeth with an infidel? And what agreement hath the temple of God with idols? For ye are the temple of the living God, as God hath said, I will dwell in them, and walk in them; and I will be their God, and they shall be my people. Wherefore come out from among them, and be ye separate, sayeth the Lord, and touch not the unclean thing; and I will receive you. And I will be a Father unto you, and ye shall be my sons and daughters, saith the Lord Almighty” – (2 Cor.6:14-18).

 

   I have no doubts that the Babylon of Revelation is the U.S.A. and I’ve preached on this several times, especially in my sermon “Babylon-U.S.A.” But there is false teaching going on over the WEB by some preachers who are telling people to flee out of Babylon-U.S.A. and go to some other nation. God is not telling us to come out physically, but spiritually. Notice (Rev.18:4) “Come out of her my people, that ye be not partakers of her sins..” It is very plain that God is telling us to separate ourselves from the wickedness of Babylon, that we not be partakers of her sins. A coming out is necessary to sonship. If you are a true son and daughter of God and have the right to call Him Abba, Father, then you will come out of the midst of a wicked world and separate yourself with a holy life. This is the opposite of ‘coming out’ and committing the abominable sin of Sodomy that is prevalent in Babylon-U.S.A. – (Jer.50:40) and (Is.13:19). You are to separate yourself from physical fornication and spiritual fornication with Babylon which is idolatry – “And what agreement hath the temple of God with idols?” When I got saved, I immediately left the Roman Catholic Church and her idolatry. I was not in agreement with her in continuing to be a religious whore. I’m not in agreement with the adulterers and Sodomites and those that have sex outside of marriage and those that commit incest and bestiality. I have come out of fornicating Babylon – amen. We come out of Babylon by separating ourselves from their wickedness.

 

   The first and most important part of ‘coming out of Babylon’ is to ‘come to’ Christ for salvation. That’s what Christ’s first coming is all about – that we my come to Him and be saved. “And ye will not come to me, that ye might have life” – (Jn.5:40). First, you come out of sinful Babylon when you come to Christ and become a new born again creature in Christ, a holy creature, born of the Holy Spirit. First you come to Christ and then you ‘overcome.’ You become a separated people, a peculiar people, a holy people that will not mix and mingle with the sins of Babylon and the world. “For whatsoever is born of God overcometh the world: and this is the victory that overcometh the world, even our faith. Who is he that overcometh the world, but he that believeth that Jesus is the Son of God? “ – (I Jn.5:4,5) – Come and overcome.

 

   If you’re not born again, it will do you no good to flee from the U.S. and go to another country, because the wrath of God is still upon you and will find you wherever you go. If you’re saved and part of the people of God, why should you flee Babylon-U.S.A. and go elsewhere? The Lord wants you here as a witness to preach to others so they can be saved and escape the wrath to come during the great tribulation and be raptured up. You have conquered death and have eternal life through Christ – and to die is gain – (Philip.1:21). God is longsuffering and merciful and is not willing that any perish but that they come to repentance and be saved. You have already come out of Babylon spiritually when you were born again, now you need to keep yourselves unspotted by the sins of the wicked.

 

   God will take us out of Babylon physically when His time is right, when He raptures us. We occupy till the rapture trumpet blows and we hear “Come up hither” - (Rev.4:1). That’s when the saved people of God will come out of Babylon physically. Be a ‘come-outer’ by coming to Christ and getting born again and then be a separated ‘overcomer’. God doesn’t want us to be afraid of death in Babylon“And fear not them which kill the body, but are not able to kill the soul…” – (Mt.10:28). A similar verse that goes with (2 Cor.6) is in (Is.52:11) “Depart ye, depart ye, go ye out from hence, touch no unclean thing: go ye out of the midst of her; be ye clean that bear the vessels of the Lord.”

 

   After we come to Christ and get saved, we need to come out of spiritual Babylon (Rev.17) called the Mother of Harlots. She is called that because this religion commits idolatry, which is spiritual  fornication. She also commits physical fornication as we can see clearly with the Catholic Church and her idolatrous priests fornicating like Sodom with boys. God is stripping her naked and exposing her fornication to the world. Spiritual Babylon is headed by the Roman Catholic Church with all other apostate Christian religions and religions of the world. This apostasy is called a “falling away” from the true faith – “Except there came a falling away first…” – (2 Thes.2:3). If apostasy comes into your church, then you must come out of it – be a come-outer. These apostates will not only worship the Beast, they will promote the idolatry of the Beast as God. This will be the last emperor worship on planet earth – mother of harlots indeed. If you get saved and you’re a member of a church that doesn’t get anyone saved, you need to come out of spiritual Babylon and join a Bible believing, soul winning church or start one. I came out of the Catholic Church when I got saved in 1972.

 

   Remember that the key sin of Babylon is fornication and this is the sin you must especially keep yourselves separated from – both physical and spiritual fornication – “for all nations have drunk of the wine of the wrath of her fornication…” – (Rev.18:3).  When Sodomites openly declare their wicked sin, they are said to ‘come out.’ The devil’s come-outers – amen.

 

   Coming out of Babylon means coming out of the world as Babylon stands for the cities of the world. “Love not the world, neither the things that are in the world, if any man love the world, the love of the Father is not in him. For all that is in the world, the lust of the flesh, and the lust of the eyes, and the pride of life, is not of the Father, but is of the world” – (I Jn.2:15,16).

 

   No nation answers to the description of Babylon in (Rev.18) better than America. No nation has ever been as rich and covetous and lived as deliciously as U.S. No nation has ever had more military power than U.S. We are the last empire prophesied in (Dan.2) the empire of the Beast. We have been destroying nations as a beast of prey (Dan.7) devouring and destroying nations especially with our conquest and seizure of Afghanistan and Iraq. When we conquered Babylon – Iraq, not in defense but in preemptive offense, we showed the world that we are the New Babylon of Revelation. The battle of the two Babylons is over between old Babylon-Iraq and new Babylon-U.S.A. and our military now occupies Iraq. The U.S. President is now the ruler of ancient Babylon. We conquered the ‘leg and foot’ of Rome – Italy in WWII, and now we have conquered the ‘head’ of Babylon-Iraq and now we are setting our sights on Iran-Persian and the ‘breast and arms’ of (Dan.2). We have now become an empire not a republic

 

   God is about to judge Babylon-U.S.A for our violence, for our crimes, for our backsliding from a Godly heritage, for our murdering of millions of babies by abortion, for our idolatry, for our flaunting of Sodomy and fornication and adultery, for our corruption, for our drunkenness and drug abuse, for our rampant divorce, for our lewd pornography, for our child molestations, for our cheatings, for our thefts, for our filthy books and movies and television, for our sorcery, for our love of money and covetousness, for our rebellious children, etc. etc. etc. As God’s watchman, I warn you to separate yourselves and come out of Babylon-U.S.A.’s wickedness. Be not partakers of her sins, for her sins have reached unto heaven, like the tower of Babel, and like our twin towers. The great tribulation plagues are soon to fall upon U.S. and remember you do not come out of Babylon-U.S.A. by fleeing this country and going elsewhere. You come out of Babylon by separating yourself from Babylon’s wickedness. You will come out of Babylon physically at the rapture. “Neither be partakers of other men’s sins” - (I Tim.5:22). And again – “be not ye therefore partakers with them” – (Eph.5:3-7). “Come out of her my people, that ye be not partakers of her sins.”

 

   Have you come to Christ for salvation? Are you born again by the Holy Spirit? Jesus Christ is God’s free gift of salvation. Don’t spurn this costliest of gifts – it cost God the death of His beloved son on the cross. “Come unto me, all ye that labour and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest” – (Mt.11:28). “Neither is there salvation in any other: for there is none other name under heaven given among men, whereby we must be saved” – (Acts 4:12). Repent of your sins and by faith call upon the Lord Jesus to save you. Come out of Babylon by coming to Christ and becoming a new creature. O’ Lamb of God, I come, I come. Take heed to this trumpet of warning.

 

Come out of Babylon – U.S.A.
