“My people, come out from her so that you don’t participate in her sins and have no share with her in her plagues, because her sins are heaped as high as heaven and God has remembered her vileness.” Revelation 18:4-5 (TPT)
There is a constant battle going on. A conflict between good and evil. A struggle against darkness and light. A contest between right and wrong. A war between the Kingdom of God and the kingdom of the devil. Babylon represents the kingdom of darkness, those things that are not of God. Those things that oppose God’s ways, will and word! Babylon is not a nation, but a system. This system is deeply ingrained in our nation. In Revelation it talks about those not walking with God as unbelievers, liars, murders, magicians, sexually immoral, thieves and cowards (Revelation 9:21, 21:8). As followers of Christ we cannot stand with those who strive to murder innocent children in and out of the womb. We cannot participate in the lies, the witchcraft (btw, rebellion is as the sin of witchcraft – 1 Samuel 15:23), nor the perversion of gender and marriage. Even now, God is calling us to separate ourselves from Babylon, to come out of our partnership with darkness (1 Corinthians 6:18-20), to break away from those who lie, and those who steal. Jesus is calling His bride to prepare herself, to be holy and blameless before Him.
Please cry out for God to show you any place you have partnered, and/or are partnering with Babylon! Plead with God for a holy fire to rage within you. There are things we have simply grown to tolerate that are appalling to God, ask Him to reveal them to you. Ask Him to show you how to flee Babylon, NOW!
“And so, dear brothers and sisters, I plead with you to give your bodies to God because of all He has done for you. Let them be a living and holy sacrifice—the kind He will find acceptable. This is truly the way to worship Him. Don’t copy the behavior and customs of this world, but let God transform you into a new person by changing the way you think. Then you will learn to know God’s will for you, which is good and pleasing and perfect.” Romans 12:1-2 (NLT)
