You know this Lady?

 

Look at her very well. Can you remember the last time you saw her? Does she look a little strange to you? She shouldn’t be. The Bible calls her Mystery Babylon. False religion is another name she bears.

Almost all the prophets and the apostles of the Bible wrote of her. She is been around for a while and she surely knows her ways around men. She has always hung around anywhere men can be found.

Her charm is never left to anyone’s imagination. It shouts at you from a good distance; the allure is so clear! She talks so much about the power of your self-will, if she thinks that’s your strong suit, or your love of pleasure, if that to her, is how you can be taken. She is the Lady for all seasons.

The true religion says it is only God, through His only begotten Son, Jesus Christ, that can take anyone to heaven: our Lady says you don’t need any God’s Son and she has quite a few offerings of her own:

1 Roman Catholicism, the pope and Mary worship;

2 Islam;

3 Pentecostalism

4 Charismaticism

5 Pilgrimages to Mecca or Jerusalem or other ‘holy lands’;

6 Hinduism;

7 Buddhism; and

8 Various other ‘natural’ religions of Asia, Europe, Africa and the Americas.

Look carefully at all of them and you will be shocked at the uncanny internal similarities on teachings, beliefs, practices and goals of 1 to 5 in particular and all of them together in general. That should count for something in pin-pointing the Author of these ‘separate’ religions.

At times false religion tells you it is self-denial that clinches it before God. Have you not heard of pastors and imams touting 21-, 70-, 100- and 150-day fasting as if refusal to eat is what forces God to answer anyone’s prayers. Others teach almsgiving it is, forgetting that the only alms that registers in heaven is the Blood of the Son of God. She tells you attendance in the Church or mosque, payment of the dues and the goodwill of  pastors, elders, imams, priests and members of your local church, mosque or shrine are more than enough, if you must think of anything about God at all.

While the true religion tells man he cannot help himself, Mystery Babylon says it is insulting to depict anyone as helpless, even before God.

Sin? What sin? Mystery Babylon aka false religion tells you you can commit as many sins as you like. You can steal, lie, cheat, covet and commit as many sins as you please, you are told. All you need to do even after committing murder is to wash your hands, your nostrils and your feet and commence your next prayers! The water of ablution, or sand, if no water is available, will wipe away all memory of your sins before God! In any case, is He not less smart than you?

 

Mystery religion tells you, “Your life is your own, live it any way you like. A few moments before you die, you can repent”! It says you may even discover, upon your death,  the value of good things you did far outweighs the bad ones!

Rest In Peace?

And, even, if you fail to repent before you die, your friends and mourners can wish you to Rest In Peace. The wishes of your mourners are more important than whatever God thinks of you and those wishes will be enough for you to enter heaven. The fact of your unfortunate demise will obliterate your sins and wishing you an RIP is just appropriate to a poor fellow like you!

 

You will be surprised if I told you the phrase “Rest In Peace” does not even exist in the Bible. It is one of those ideas planted by the Devil through the Roman Catholic Church to put people’s consciences at ease even when they know they have questions to answer before God on their lives. “It is appointed unto men once to die, but after this the judgment” Heb_9:27 is what the Bible has. The problem has always been whose report you will believe: the categorical statement of the Bible or the false teachings of the Roman Catholic Church and other fake churches.

God Is Good: Too Good To Judge Anyone!

Mystery Babylon tells you God is too good to punish anyone with hell. If anyone should remind you God had destroyed the world in the past with a flood, Mystery Religion tells you the past is past: God is too good to do any such thing to you! When you open your Bible, if she ever allows you to do such things, she is never so careless to the point of letting you read where it is written that “the wicked shall be turned into hell”, Psalm 9:17.

 

Even though the Bible calls all men wicked and deserving of God’s wrath, (Romans 3:10-18) Mystery Religion tells you you needn’t care whenever you read anything about any wicked in the Bible: after all you are “not Hitler” and you hadn’t murdered anyone! At times she lulls you to sleep with the idea that Christ does not represent the religion of your parents, and you don’t need to worry about His sacrifice on the cross.

 

When the Bible tells you you need to commit only one sin to go to hell (James 2:11), Mystery Religion says God can’t possibly mean what the Bible says! Eat drink and be merry: in any case, everyone does it!

My Conscience Is Clear

Even though the Bible in Jeremiah 17:9 says, “The heart is deceitful above all things, and desperately wicked: who can know it?” and that we cannot rely on our consciences as guides on godliness, Mystery Babylon makes it clear your conscience is okay and is more reliable than God’s written words. You have no cause for fear since your conscience doesn’t condemn you, even after committing sin. And even when it does, you peacefully sleep it off and soon banish any memory of any sin from your mind.

 

If you attend a church, Mystery Babylon makes sure it is a church where you are told God is only interested in how you look and how He can bless your clothing, housing, incomes and wealth here on earth: your sins are of little or no concern to Him. Your assumption of your ‘inheritance and glorious destiny’ here on earth is the thing you should focus your attention on since that is what God and His angels in heaven are preoccupied by! Even though this is flagrant witchcraft and is diametrically opposed to the express teachings of the Saviour that men should seek first (principally) the kingdom of God and His righteousness, false religion boldly tells you your dominion of the world is the only thing that matters to the King of Heaven!

Karma Is It?

As far as Mystery Babylon is concerned, it is Ok to wish for the death of your enemies: it’s cool seeing people who have been bad to you suffer, isn’t it? She tells you you can even ‘pray’ for their downfall. Karma, as far as false religion is concerned, is a good and necessary part of life.

Mystery Babylon sees nothing wrong in witchcraft: she advises you to consult fortune tellers any time you wish and charmers if you like to be entertained. If you foresee or experience any problem with your boss, a teacher or a co-worker, you can ask a medicine-man to help you out with enchantments and divination. To fake religion, this does not stop you from calling yourself a Christian.

Souls For Sale

Rev 18:1 And after these things I saw another angel come down from heaven, having great power; and the earth was lightened with his glory.

Rev 18:2 And he cried mightily with a strong voice, saying, Babylon the great is fallen, is fallen, and is become the habitation of devils, and the hold of every foul spirit, and a cage of every unclean and hateful bird.

Rev 18:3 For all nations have drunk of the wine of the wrath of her fornication, and the kings of the earth have committed fornication with her, and the merchants of the earth are waxed rich through the abundance of her delicacies.

Rev 18:4 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.

Rev 18:5 For her sins have reached unto heaven, and God hath remembered her iniquities.

Rev 18:6 Reward her even as she rewarded you, and double unto her double according to her works: in the cup which she hath filled fill to her double.

Rev 18:7 How much she hath glorified herself, and lived deliciously, so much torment and sorrow give her: for she says in her heart, I sit a queen, and am no widow, and shall see no sorrow.

Rev 18:8 Therefore shall her plagues come in one day, death, and mourning, and famine; and she shall be utterly burned with fire: for strong is the Lord God who judges her.

Rev 18:9 And the kings of the earth, who have committed fornication and lived deliciously with her, shall bewail her, and lament for her, when they shall see the smoke of her burning,

Rev 18:10 Standing afar off for the fear of her torment, saying, Alas, alas, that great city Babylon, that mighty city! for in one hour is thy judgment come.

Rev 18:11 And the merchants of the earth shall weep and mourn over her; for no man buys their merchandise any more:

Rev 18:12 The merchandise of gold, and silver, and precious stones, and of pearls, and fine linen, and purple, and silk, and scarlet, and all thyine wood, and all manner vessels of ivory, and all manner vessels of most precious wood, and of brass, and iron, and marble,

Rev 18:13 And cinnamon, and odours, and ointments, and frankincense, and wine, and oil, and fine flour, and wheat, and beasts, and sheep, and horses, and chariots, and slaves, and souls of men.

…and souls of men.

That’s the most valuable merchandise Mystery Babylon deals in. Are you sure you are totally free from the deception of Mystery Babylon and the various shades of fake religions floating around?

You should listen to Dr Gary Reimers as he speaks on False Religion.

Act 17:30 And the times of this ignorance God winked at; but now commands all men every where to repent:

Act 17:31 Because he has appointed a day, in the which he will judge the world in righteousness by that man (Jesus Christ)  whom he has ordained; whereof he has given assurance unto all men, in that he has raised him from the dead.
