The only Father we thank you so much for another beautiful day for life and for health and for the ability to come and reason together and I pray that your Holy Spirit will be here in our mitts that you will guide and direct and all that's done and that the message will be clear tonight and then our hearts will be open for what you would have us to know and to take away from tonight's presentation your name we pray a min. OK We're going to jump right in to the Book of Revelation and get started we're going to look at a woman that we see in Revelation Chapter 12 The pure and virtuous woman doesn't she look nice very simple but very attractive beautiful I think that's really the depiction that we have in Revelation Chapter 12 Jeremiah 62 says I have likened the daughter of Zion to a lovely and delicate woman now when we look in the Book of Revelation a woman is symbolic of the body no a church and so we're going to have a pure woman an innocent woman a delicate woman that probably is representation of a pure church maybe pure doctrine and that type of thing and of course the inverse of that we're going to look at that tonight as well while it's just the opposite of everything I just said impure and really use a stronger language than that here's a depiction of the impure woman and she looks a little bit more conniving that's maybe not the person that you want to marry your son as much as the 1st picture. I don't know can we trust or now of course these are an artist depiction but we'll look at the description and I think these pictures do pretty well based on the description we have and so if a pure woman is a pure church than a PA state or or even a. What's an impure woman yes would be in a pasta a system or an impure church and so in Revelation Chapter 12 verse once is now a great sign appeared in heaven a woman clothed the sun with the moon under her feet and her head a garland of 12 stars. Then being with child she cried out in labor and in pain to give birth and a fair bit of symbolism there we're going to try and break it down a little bit but it's going to be kind of a quick skip over to some degree to because we have so much to cover but what are some of these symbols and we have to probably do a little bit more of an exhaustive Bible study to look at the symbols but many commentators agree on the symbols the son is Jesus His Gospel his righteousness how it radiates throughout the New Testament OK So then the moon would be the sacrificial system of the Old Testament that she standing on and then the 12 stars would be the 12 disciples which crowned the early years of the New Testament church there are some that have some variation of that but this is generally what people perceive all this to be but then the woman is in labor and is laid in labor with Christ OK And as we look Al a bit more. But now in Revelation 17 verse one then one of the 7 angels who had the 7 balls came and talked with me saying to me Come I will show you the judgment of the great harlot who sits on many waters and this is not the pure woman anymore this is a harlot Rice again not. The young woman you want your son to marry and it sits on many waters where look at a verse for that but waters in Revelation in prophecy is symbolic of people OK or a populated area. Verse 15 then he said to me the waters which you sought is the same chapter just a little bit later the waters which you saw where the harlot sits are peoples multitude of nations and tongues so we have it right there the Bible interprets self. So going back to verse 2 here with whom the kings of the earth committed fornication. Again this language is is quite different than the pure and virtuous woman so here we have a harlot committing fornication with the kings of the earth and then the inhabitants of the earth were made drunk with the wine of her fornication so we have a harlot committing form cation with the kings of the earth and people getting drunk on her fornication now we just say very simply to drink and to become intoxicated What does that do to the mind. Clouds it and the more intoxicated I am the more my mind is clouded and the more I lose that right to say the more I can't reason well. OK. I mean I don't know if you remember when you had to take that test or when you renewed or whatever there's all these questions on alcohol and if you don't study them you're going to miss it you think well I know everything on the road and if I need turn left right yield this and that but if you don't know the alcohol levels when it constitutes you being drunk you're going to lose and miss out on that test so this idea of being drunk means I'm not reasoning clearly I'm in a stupor and I probably could dig up pretty easily some facts on alcohol and how related that is to so many issues in terms of crime and accidents I mean we've heard these before I think almost half of the accident on the road somebody is under the influence or something like that. So much so in fact is this problem of being intoxicated and it's a little bit scary when you stop and think about it I'm going to become intoxicated perhaps to the point that I don't know what I'm going to do next I don't exactly know where I'm going to wake up I'm not going to really know what happened while I was kind of checked out it's a little scary isn't it I think so. When I was 2 Mr I wanted the islands called new coral. The senior class went there the senior class trip and I was one a sponsor so we got on this cargo ship and we went over the ocean for about a day and went to this time Lyle and so this hole and which means it's a volcano that basically imploded so you have a lagoon inside and little. Canal that goes in and out and there was probably maybe $6075.00 people total that lived on this atoll $80.00 L L And so they decided that the local drink there is sick out that's where you take a plant leaf and you grind it up and it looks nice and green and has this real snotty look to it and a little water and you put in the title Cup and you put it back and you squint your eyes like this and you. And if you ask how come they squint their eyes it's because it taste terrible but that's how desperate they are to get intoxicated right. And so they drink this stuff called Cal and then they get drunk and they do all kinds of things course in that part of the world everybody has a machete so that gets a little bit sketchy if you really are angry at somebody you might boil papayas and throw them at somebody can imagine getting hit by a hot pie in the burns that would leave and it's just a mess it's a complete mess so on a small island in new coral they saw what alcohol was doing to their small society and they said we don't have to put up with this and so they did they made a law and they banned all alcoholic beverages on their little island and so now nobody's getting drunk and they say it solves all kinds of problems that we used to have OK. And you keep moving here but this idea of drunkenness The 1st is that what is fornication Well it's an illicit Union OK that's what fornication is it's the fallen church system united with the state so we have church and state uniting this is the idea of committing fornication in a true church system the church is united with Jesus Christ not the state right Jesus is the source of all true power we don't need the state to come along and strong arm people right I mean that's when things get really kind of twisted. And that's why in this country we're set up on this idea and of course those those rights are being violated more and more all the time but the idea of separation of church and state is you can't mandate what I'm going to believe or how I'm going to exercise my convictions and all those kinds of things as soon as we start mandating those things that can be a problem real quick. So. Revelation 173 so he carried me away in the spirit into the wilderness and I saw a woman sitting on a scarlet beast which is full of names of blasphemy having 7 heads and 10 horns the harlot woman of Revelation 17 represents a false system of worship false system of worship. And the beast upon which he rides represents the state that makes sense we've seen all the way down through and Daniel and even in Revelation every time but especially in the time we have a beast it's rivers represents a kingdom or a power right and so here you have this woman writing this beast Bible commentary here Foster Brown state and church are precious gifts of God but the state being desecrated becomes beast like the church a pasta sizing becomes the harlot So we have a church that is a pasta sizing right. Verse for the woman was a raid and purple and scarlet and adorned with gold and precious stones and pearls. So this woman is trying to draw all kinds of attention to herself and she's adorned in certain colors that I think are interesting to note purple and scarlet Now what I believe that this a PA State Church represents oftentimes adorned itself and purple and scarlet as well is that the only den of fire no it's not but I think it's I could say ironic but I think the Lord is talking about let's talk about college for a 2nd $34.00 times in Scripture we have 3 colors mentioned together OK so it's not just random but there mentioned together and that is red blue and purple mentioned together in the Bible most of the time you find it right there in Leviticus and in those places it's talking about the sanctuary over and over and over you see those 3 colors red purple and blue. Purple what is happening Well oftentimes purple is symbolic of royalty it was a very difficult color to make to find the various dyes to do it and we have there in Judges 8 verse 26 it says and purple robes which were on the Kings. And so purple that's one example there's others but purple in Scripture oftentimes symbolizes royalty OK let's go back here and let's add scarlet Well Scarlet is very much like Red very much like blood and we have a lot of symbolism there we could point to many texts one is very plain as here in a fetus to verse 13 but now in Christ Jesus you who once were far off of him brought near by what the blood of Christ. And so oftentimes scarlet red all of that symbolizes the blood of Jesus Christ and even today we think in those along those lines so we have one more color that is not mentioned in this harlot woman by the way it mentions the purple royalty and it mentions the blood but that's it almost as if to say all you need is the blood of Christ and you are then royalty hang on that thought for a minute let's look at blue this other color that appears with these others so often this was a numbers 53839 speak to children Israel tell them to make tassels on the corner of their garments throughout their generations and to put a blue thread in the tassel of the corners why are we going to put a blue thread we're talking down here in their robes and they're tassels and you still have the tassels that you may look upon it and remember where they can remember all the commandments of the Lord and do them in fact a pretty good case can be made that the 10 Commandments were actually human from what was the rock sapphire which they believed to have a bluish tint to it. It had sapphire I'm trying member OK I have looked at a while but they believe 10 Commandments had a bluish tint so it only makes sense and so here you have that I finished the verse and that you may not follow the harlotry that's kind of interesting to use that word to which your own heart and your own eyes are inclined and so this idea is and I want all of my steps to be within God's law and that in that cool I think that's a really neat similar So as I walk around I want all of my steps to be within the law of god case every time I see blue and any time I see blue in the sanctuary I'm thinking of the 10 Commandments and then you have God's law. So let's go back here we have purple is royalty Scarlet is blood. Of Christ and blue is the law who's ever mixed and played with colors the only painters in the room now I'm I can't call myself a painter but I remember from the 1st grade or 3rd grader whenever it was the primary colors so I have a right red yellow and blue so if you mix certain colors together and they have all these fancy charts if you mix a little bit more this little bit more of that and you get this and so on and so forth and all of the colors come from these 3 I mean when I learned this I thought that's not true I do mix my crayons and it didn't quite work out for me but it is true so if you take a little red and you mix in the blue what do you get purple Now this is a little bit of an aside and maybe I'm taking too much time on this color business. But I find it very interesting that this harlot. This harlot has the red and it says the blood of price is all you need for royalty and in essence it's kind of disregarding the blue you don't see blue on this hard anywhere and I'm not trying to make a case for works we don't earn anything but we don't disregard God's law either it's part of his character it's part of who he is so when you combine the character of God and how I want to take on his character I want all of my steps to be within the 10 commandments to the best of my ability and really the power that comes to me through Jesus Christ and His blood that covers me those 2 meld together and because of those 2 royalty so it makes sense. To separate the blue is kind of like saying I can claim the blood of Jesus Christ and do whatever I want I've never met those kind of Christians. Yeah I can do whatever I want to It doesn't matter and it's like telling your husband or your wife we got married it's a done deal I signed the paper we sent them in now I can do whatever I want so people get off on one debt saying what you're trying to earn the fact that you're married no that's not how it works well I'm just throwing out the law together it doesn't matter no that's not how it works right and so hopefully you understand what I'm saying but it's the red and blue together that equals Walty that makes sense little aside I don't know I find it interesting so having in her hand a golden cup full of abominations and the filthiness of her fornication the golden cup of wine in her hand represents the intoxication of faults doctrine now what makes false doctrine intoxicating the ever wondered. Well it's an ears tell me what I want to hear Have you ever tried to you know you're in a situation where you're looking for advice and you don't do this intentionally necessarily but if you're not careful you always go to the person that will tell you what you want to hear if you notice that So if you want to take this job you go talk to somebody who's a real latter climber and you say hey what do you think knowing full well they're going to say what do you. And there's also somebody else you could talk to that would say all no you don't want to do that you know it's too many hours or whatever you know want to do that and so if we're not careful we can always pick the person that will tell us what we want to hear right and so I would I would encourage you when you're making a big life choice pray about and say Lord who could tell me really from a. A good standpoint it's not going to be biased it's going to tell me the truth in love either way who should I go to as opposed to just getting the information that you want to hear but these doctrines that can be intoxicating are the doctrines that tell us what we want to hear a lot of people don't like to hear that they're accountable for how they live don't tell me that I don't want to hear that I want to do whatever I want to do well you should be this way and you should need that why don't the that's what we do right. I'm not here even. And people can become intoxicated with their false ideas contained on this calls for a mind with wisdom the 7 heads are 7 hills so here we have the 7 heads are 7 hills on which the woman sits. So the 7 heads are the 7 Hills Now the B. she is writing on is a nation or a power OK so what area of the world or what city in the world what power maybe can we talk now that's built on 7 hills. Only one place in the world and. Only one thing a world that meets this description and that is Rome so here you have a false system of worship and again these are my words but I believe this is a fair interpretation of prophecy if you want to delve deeper pulled me aside and we'll delve deeper but here you have a power Rome which if we go back to Daniel 2 Let's go back and pick up Daniel 2 we had Babylon made a Persian Greece and Rome OK And we've already seen. 10 horns all kind and so this is matching all those things that we've seen coming along and so here we have this beast power that this woman or church is riding on this power is Rome. And it has some false doctrine as part of its teachings people are intoxicated with these false doctrines right. And it comes out of many waters or a large people group we have a lot of things happening here. The voluntary system of Revelation 17 has colors of purple and scarlet and she sits on a city with 7 hills and says on her forehead a name was written Mystery Babylon the Great the mother of harlots and of the abominations of the earth. First to many for one says now the spirits Pressley says that in latter times some will depart from the faith giving heed to deceiving spirits and doctrines of demons interesting so we are told and forewarned that these types of things will happen you know we used to think the devil is always out there but is it possible there are doctrines of devils in the church I mean is it the case that when we come into the church the devil leaves us alone. Is it possible the devil has a work inside the church. I'm sure I could get testimonies from all of you all of you have gone to a church and somebody said something not nice and sensitive they were rude to me they were all these things well let me tell you that's not going to change. And if you choose to join this church we're going to try our best to be nice but we're still human and you're price still going to have a bag spirits I hope not but you probably will but we're here because of who Jesus Christ and we're all trying to do our very best by God's grace I'm not trying to make excuses and tell you people should be treating me not at all if I hear somebody trees somebody mean I go talk to him I will practice Matthew 18 I don't let that kind of stuff go because that really makes me upset Jesus had right it's right to sing the indignation so so can I write but the end of the day is going to happen and sometimes we have to have tougher skin. Because the devil is working in fact in the church but here we're talking about a system that maybe the devil has a lot of control over in terms of the doctrines and so forth for the time will come when they will not endure sound doctrine but according to their own desires because they have it seen ears they will heap up for themselves teachers and they will turn your ears away from the truth and be turned aside to fables I think this could almost be talking about our country too talking about it seniors we don't want to hear stuff that's going to condemn us I mean come to the point now where it's almost like there is no such thing as wrong there's right for you and right for me and right for whoever and don't you who are you to judge what's right for me you can't tell me what's right what's wrong and say and they put up teachers that teach this kind of stuff all the time all the time all the time don't don't step on my toes just make me feel good when you feel good and build me up now we need to be built up we need to be encouraged but sometimes we have our toes stepped on to say Oh have mercy right. Anyway John 1717 sanctify them by your truth your word is truth we need to be basing everything on God's word that's the truth I mean there's no way to anything I say who cares what I say but when God says something in his word I am listening now I.E. pay attention now. So Mystery Babylon the Great what is the literal meaning of the word Babylon and what is its origin. Even knows the word babies in there how babies babble and so forth well it takes us back to Genesis after the flood they didn't want to be destroyed by a worldwide flood again and so they decided after some time went by we're going to a wrecked ourselves this nice big tower so there's ever a flood again we'll be safe and they call the tower of Babel or Babel whichever Jess's 11 and therefore its name is called they will because they're the Lord confused the language of all the earth I think oftentimes as in my opinion that's where we get a lot of our language groups and so on and of course you have some variation and. Whatever but in the midst of this construction project the communication went south everybody started talking different languages that be frustrating when you get up here the line you ask no peanuts please and I doubt that with peanuts you know can I have a lemonade and they give you something else instead and on and on it goes and that's just your food try and do everything else on a construction project project and you're really going to intro so Babbin literally means confusion and so this woman here in reference to Babylon confusion. Daniel 430 the King spoke saint is not this great Babylon that I have built for a royal dwelling is were never can as are standing out there looking over his beautiful palace which was very beautiful one of 7 wonders of the world as look at what I have done look at what I have done Never mind on the backs of how many 1000000 people I don't know look what I've done by my mighty power and by the honor of my Majesty so here we have another battle and focusing on God's faithfulness to God No look what I've done so Babel is a man made system of religion it's manmade it's man centered is man focused it's me me me me me it's confusion. Man he's 1618 I will build My Church in the gates of hell shall not prevail against it sometimes do you this verse as if the devil is storming God it's actually quite the opposite God is storming the devil in the devil's not going to survive this was truly saying to citizens of religion a manmade one and God made religion Jesus is calling us from all human systems of religion to be faithful and true to his word and then we want to be faithful to God's word kolache and 118 and he is the head of the Body the Church who is the beginning the firstborn from the dead that in all things he he may be the preeminence So who's the head of the church Christ is the head of the Church of Christ in Christ only. And his word and he's given to us is beautiful word should trump everything else so the true church of God is the only organization so big that his body is upon earth but its head is in heaven somebody said that I was pretty clever. The own body. So big that it's bodies upon earth but its head is in heaven so in the last days the church state system would arise called spiritual Babyland that would have a spiritual leader claiming to speak as God claiming to speak as God had the prerogative of God 2nd Thessalonians to 4 who oppose an exultant self above all that is called God or that is worshiped so that he sits as God in the temple of God showing himself that he is God and we see a system of religion that is that way now let's pause here for a 2nd I don't want anybody to feel like I'm picking on anybody I don't want to pick on anybody I want to pick on any group but I do want to be faithful what Scripture has to say and I don't think we're talking about a person or an individual we're talking about a power an organization that makes sense. And so later this week I mean I think when is it Friday night I think we're going to be talking about the United States in Bible prophecy where do you live United States. There's some things about that that will have to say that aren't so great Actually I'm not going to salmon and let the Bible say I'm too scared Sam myself all of the word talk at that point time does that mean all of us are terrible people no but it just simply means that we are part of a system that's going to do some things that are not the best and there's a system or religious system that's doing things that are not Biblical Now there can be some very committed people in that system in fact there are very committed people in that system I know very committed people in that system. And I believe that the time will come that these true and faithful followers will see clearly and will choose to make a different choice but they haven't had the opportunity yet right now we'll look at that tomorrow night when we look at the mark of the beast. So Babylon is a center of image worship as well we had that throughout Babylon but who's really. The one that is a go between is not image worship it's not sun god is nothing else is Jesus Christ in the heavenly sanctuary he's the ones making intercession for us we don't have to go to some other outside God or some outside you know church leader or father or somebody from the past we go through Christ he's our intercessor and he's our High Priest so going to Exodus 20 chapter 4 and 5 you shall not make for yourselves the 2nd commandment a carved image or any likeness of anything that is in heaven above or that is in the earth beneath or that is in the water under the earth you shall not bow down to them nor serve them for I the LORD your God am a jealous God that's a very relational word isn't it jealousy can be a good thing if your spouse is cheating with somebody else and you don't feel jealous that's the problem God says I don't once you see with somebody else I'm a jealous God I want your full attention I don't want to pry into this idle or that I know this image or that image and we put that right there in the 10 Commandments. But we see this fault organization as well many images they have changed instead of Jupiter now St Peter and all those kinds of things again I don't mean to pick on any person it's warm in here son going to do this try not to be offended just look to Jesus I'm just a man OK. Make it so you can see when Babylon was a primal source this is a to balance Dr Alexander Hislop Babylon was a primary source from which all these systems of idolatry flowed is not interesting baboons also the center of false teachings about death we see that throughout babble and fall teachings about death it was the concept of the Babylonians that the immortal soul left the body and lived on that was just common in balance you have all of these these things wrapped up in this symbolism. And we see it in a spiritual balance as well therefore the Babylonians established a system of gods and goddesses worshipping the spirits of those who supposedly live done worshipping the spirits of those boldly lived on until you get all this kind of thing and we talk to other night about how dangerous this is because this opens us up and makes us vulnerable. To the devil in his evil angel to communicate and do whatever he wants we are ready have an in with this person we already trust this person this person is telling of good things great things quoting scripture all these things and as building trust building reports until eventually can tell me whatever I want or whatever it wants to tell me and I just follow along because grandma are whatever else or it's Mother Mary or you get the idea is that your 81314 he said to me turn again and you will see greater abominations that they are doing so he brought me to the door of the north gate of the Lord's house in the Lord's house the temple and to my dismay women were sitting there weeping for Tamuz So this is another god a false God Thomas was the God of the resurrection and here you have women in God's temple weeping after this god of resurrection they have they have departed haven't they. They have drifted away from what it says in God's Word and they've adopted these ideas of the culture and paganism and all these things and they've brought it into the Church baptized paganism is what we call the other night please yes these 95 for the living know that they will die but the dead know how much nothing and they have no more reward for the memory of them is forgotten some one to 1517 the dead you not praise the Lord nor any who go down into silence you would think if this soul was immortal Of course it never says immortal soul the only one has immortality in scripture from front to back is God and he comes to the 2nd coming to give us immortality. But you would think if someone did have immortality the souls continue be praising God thank you so much for delivering me for saving me for bringing me up here whatever it is but it says no the dead do not praise the Lord nor any who go down into silence so the doctor an immortal soul is not in the Bible we looked at the other night if you missed that we have a study guide in the back and we have C.D.'s at the back. So I encourage you to pick that up is man by nature immoral in the sermon by Amos Phelps he says a doctrine can be traced through the many channels of corrupted Christianity a perverted Judaism a pagan philosophy a superstitious idolatry to the great instigator of mischief in the Garden of Eden you shall not surely die. The Protestants borrowed it from the Catholics the Catholics from the fairs these affairs these are the pagans and the pagans from the old serpent who 1st praise the doctrine amid the lowly bowels of paradise to an audience all too willing to hear and heed the new and fascinating theology you shall not 30 surely die as a teen years want to hear I don't like this idea of me dying I like the idea of me being immortal can't die. Invincible. And so that was the lie that Eve bought into when she ate the fruit but this is when we receive immortality is that Christ's 2nd Coming. And and I see in Father's just a martyr died 165 A.D. says this If you have fallen in with some who are called Christians but who do not admit this truth of the resurrection and ventured to blaspheme the God of Abraham the God of a sick Isaac the God of Jacob who say there is no resurrection of the dead and that their souls when they die are taken to Heaven do not imagine that they are Christians look at the date on them he's saying if you believe in the immortal soul then you're not a Christian it's not Biblical It's a pagan idea and so we have to pay attention to those things so as a concept of the Babylonians that an immortal soul left the body at death and lived on so you have all these things in compass and this word balance right all of these various things encompassed in that word therefore the Babylonians establish a system of Gods and Goddess's works when the spirits of those who supposedly lived on Babylon was the center of sun worship is Eagle a 16 so he brought me into the inner court of the Lord's house here they are in the god's house again and they are the door of the temple of the Lord between the porch and the altar for about 25 men with their backs toward the temple of the Lord can you imagine this backs toward the temple of the Lord and their faces toward the east they were worshipping the sun toward the east again paganism and the temple of God and their worship in the Son They have the Son of God but they worship in the Son and the celestial planets and so on so sun worship crept into the church. The worship of nature by James brazier in ancient Babylonian the sun was worshiped from Morial antiquity immemorial antiquity basically forever. In ancient Babylon the sun was always worship this book here called to balance. By Alexander Hislop says the conflict to consolation the pagans to nominal christianity Rome pursued his usual policy took measures to get the Christian and pagan festivals amalgamated mean bringing them together. And to get paganism and Christianity now far sunk in idolatry in this as in so many other things to shake hands and so you have this combination of paganism and the Bible we have the Bible Sabbath and the pagans are doing their thing on Sunday and let's bring them together and let's call Sunday something that we find in scripture which we don't it's not there to integrate in this is is in our Sunday visitor January for 131 Christendom is indebted to the Catholic Church for the institution of Sunday as the Sabbath day why is Christendom indebted to the gathered church well tells you and keeping Sunday non Catholics are simply following the practice of the Catholic Church for 1800 years a tradition and not a bible ordinance so basically saying all of the Protestant churches still owe this idea of Sunday to the mother church the Catholic Church because they changed it to no biblical authority one how they have the authority to do it and they have statements of like those already not tonight another night that said well the proof's in the pudding basically that's a real paraphrase for you but they said how do we have the stories look at everybody wear them when they're going to church someday anyway any questions OK. This is a Baptist manual from 893. Ministry convention it says what a pity that it Sunday comes branded with the mark of paganism and christened with the name of the Son of God then adopted in sanctioned by the papal apostasy and bequeath as a sacred legacy to Protestantism What a shame according to Dr Edward Hiscox thing name is equal 20 verse 12 Moreover I also gave them my Sabbath to be a sign between them and me keep this verse in mind we're going to look at it again tomorrow night as we look at the mark of the beast in the sign of God but I gave them my south to be a sign between them and me they might know that I am the Lord who sanctifies them so when the Egyptians were worshipping the sun God Moses was keeping the Bible Sabbath. When the Babylonians were worshipping the sun Daniel was keeping the Bible Sabbath when the Romans were worshipping the sun Paul was keeping the Bible Sabbath and today when the world accepts pagan philosophy philosophy I believe God's going to have a group of people who will be keeping the Bible Sabbath why because it's the Bible Sabbath it's the only one that we have spoken of in the Bible is there spoken in the 10 Commandments it was for the Jews know it all way back to creation and got in still when you guys are are legal this is your workspace No I'm telling you to Rast and where we find that right there in the Creation account they're not even a day old he said I want you to rest enjoy each other enjoy a special time the all that kind of thing God's time is to rest to rest I tell you this to me this idea of the Sabbath is more relevant today than perhaps it's ever been and I go go go go go hurry hurry hurry no stop rush rush rush. I mean now adults are getting into coloring you heard about this right he got all these various places in the target and other places and you can just find adult coloring books what's the point of me picking up pencils or crams or whatever I want to do uses pencils to color with what's the point to relax I didn't learn all day long stretches and go over go and look at my phone all day and I seem to sit down take a few deep breaths and color. God has a day and you can color it's called sad and. Turn it off and just be done and just read this you know I have to color you've got a nature you can the identify flowers or birds or or take a nap or whatever but just rest. That's what our planet needs in fact ironically and we're going into this more later I should say this I suppose. But you have other people very influential people on this planet saying that our plan needs to rest as well. Just put that on the shelf will come back there is a young 2226 her present violating my law and profane my holy things they have not distinguished between the holy and the one unholy nor have they made known the difference between the unclean and the clean and they have hidden their eyes from my Sabbaths so that I am not profane so that I have had my eyes I can read so that I I am profane among them isn't that interesting so we know there is in the sacred and and sacred the clean and the young clean the whole in the unholy and you have all generation now it really doesn't care about either one. Or they like to mix the 2 together as long as there Jesus lyrics I can sing any music better I want to and I can rock it out to any ridin beat under the sun. I can just take this hard rock over here in this screamo over here and I can put great as I faithfulness words to it and I'm up there on the front doing screamo great as I faithfulness and it's awesome I don't think so. Daniel $725.00 talks about how the same power will think to change times and laws and we've already looked at that before. In a biting savage George Eliot writes this What is proposed to make an. Array Sure thank you in the heaven born code let me read as a question what is proposed to make an eraser in the heaven born code that sounds better right this at that on the CD is the eternal tab of the law to be defaced by a creature's hand always does is go in there and meddle with the 10 Commandments taken a racer to it well you really can't do that when it's in stone he who votes such an actually be should fortify himself by reasons as holy as God and as mighty as his power I got news for you the person that going around changing is calling me all things to right. The Catholic mere carnal Givens is in 1903 says reasons and sent to man the exceptions of one or the other of these alternatives either Protestantism and the keeping holy of Saturday a why because biblical Sabbath or. Catholicism basically and the keeping holy of Sunday compromise is impossible bases and if you can be a true Protestant go to church on south of 7 days a week otherwise you're fine a underneath. Because all says I'm so here we come back to the pure woman. And the adulterous woman on the contrast between these 2 forms of worship these 2 churches that we find. Very much this great controversy back and forth revelation 902 and the crime Miley with a loud voice saying Babylon the Great is fallen is fallen. And I heard another voice from heaven saying come out of her my people now we wouldn't have this verse is God didn't have his people in babyland right. Which means I believe in all denominations and all different groups and all the rest in Babel and in the fault systems he has his people that are faithful that are living up to the light that they've been shown and that's important right even scripture we have Jesus often times upholding the Gentiles verses the Jews because the Gentiles are living up to all that they know they're oftentimes I'm seeing greater faith in all of Israel I haven't seen it over there but I see it over here same idea uses my people all me and my people are still in balance but he's calling them to do what. Come out when you see clearly when you're convicted of what the Bible has than these topics the call is to come out to come out lest you share in her stand unless you receive her plagues very sober text. Again this Bible Commentary from fossil Brown the 1st justification of the woman is in her being called out of balun the harlot when Judge is about to fall for a PA state Christendom Babylon is not to be converted but to be destroyed so basically Babylon is going down is fallen it's a sinking ship and he says I don't want to go down the ship so I'm calling you to come out. The house is on fire come out gonna put out the fire is not going to save Babylon and there stands the ships going down he says My people need to come out. Can't seem to read in night the way. I have been Did I go back in the way in every a POS A to world conforming church they are some of God's invisible and true church and I believe that to be true who if they would be safe must come out and it's really not about joining another church it's about being faithful to God's word that's what it is and if you are here Saturday morning I talked about why I'm a 7 am is and we've grabbed all these pearls and all these gems from all these other denominations and people reformers that have unwrap these beautiful pearls of truth I can call them that but then they stopped they hung on to every other tradition and then they had this beautiful pearl Well that's nice but I want that Pearl over there and that Pearl and that brought all the pearls of truth right and so if somebody else comes out with something else or that the pearl of truth I want to be able to accept that and so the reason I'm as empty as because I feel like all the pearls are close I mean all the truth that I find in scripture lines at best and 7 answer to a nomination I found if I find one that lines up better I'm going there I am now I like our church is set up because if you convince the whole church then we'll just adopt that Pearl will keep cruising that's part of our history right. Revelation 804 come out of her my people lest you share in her sins that's my call but that's the call of Christ come out of her my people come out of her my people now maybe it's not a church. Maybe you're you feel like you're in the truth the church that has all the truth that's that's great but are there other ways that you're in spiritual Babylon other other way that you're compromising the truth that you know the light that you've been that you've received if so God's calling you out as well come out of that junk come out of that garbage come out of that wasting of your time and your intellect and your gifts and all those things come out of all those things and be part of something bigger and better your Holy Father Some people are saying they're ancient words the Bible's not relevant who cares I'm going to do whatever I want to and I believe according to my engineers and I'd rather be intoxicated than to know the truth or that might be OK for a season but it seems like following every intoxication there's a time that the media doesn't show. How you know the toilet and feeling terrible and wondering what we did and why we did it and filled with regret Lord in the biggest decision our lives we don't want to be at that place we want to accept your invitation to come out. Babble and come out of anything that is faulty anything that is compromised anything that's not Biblical. And to be faithful to you and your word only and more that can feel like a real tug of war on our hearts and it can be a huge decision the Lord when we choose to surrender to that just like this huge weight can fall off when we finally say you know I don't know about anybody else but as for me in my house we will serve the Lord we're going to do what the Bible has to say we're going to live for an audience of one we're going to live for Christ only and what he calls us to do Lord the wake and then fall. And we can trust you fully and we can know everything as well between our soul and our Savior and we can have a peace in assurance that perhaps we never had before and when that's what we want and the big game of life we don't want to come up short we don't want to be a loser we want to be on the winning side we want to be standing with you and sort of anybody here is on the fence tonight I pray that in the quietness of their heart they will simply pray a prayer Lord I believe help my family I want to be a follower give me the courage. To step out in faith and follow you only my parents raised me.
