“Wherefore come out from among them, and be ye separate, says the Lord, and touch not the unclean thing; and I will receive you.” 2 Corinthians 6:17
Untold thousands of God’s people have attempted to warn corrupt Christendom, the modern spiritual Babylon, of their apostasy to no avail. The endtime church shows Jesus on the outside knocking. The Lord has purposed His Children and His Plan for victory over the world, the flesh and the devil. Throughout the Old Testament we see God’s Children who did not follow His Plan perish for their lack of knowledge and obedience. Instead of following the precepts of God, they were seduced by the worldly system of victory. If it is not God’s Plan, it will fail and fail it must. When God’s Children fall into the deceit of vain philosophies, they too are overtaken with the fall of the worldly system they have chosen.
The Lord sent Jeremiah to warn the Israelites of their pending 70 year captivity and told them to build houses, take wives and bear children so they would not be diminished in their captivity (Jeremiah 29), yet many would not hear and perished.
After 70 years in captivity, the Lord raised up King Cyrus to overtake Babylon and begin rebuilding the Temple. Those who heeded the warnings and were obedient to the Word of the Lord (not Jeremiah but GOD Who sent His Prophet), were delivered. While those who followed the false prophets perished.
“But the natural man receives not the things of the Spirit of God: for they are foolishness unto him: neither can he know them, because they are spiritually discerned.” 1 Corinthians 2:14
God’s Plan for His Children’s victory over the world, the flesh and the devil is given to us in the atoning work of Jesus Christ. Our faith in Jesus and His complete and utter dominion over death, hell and the grave through His perfect Sacrifice on Calvary’s Cross, places us in HIS victory and allows the Holy Spirit latitude to do that which He is commissioned to do….guide us into all Truths according to the Word of God (John 16:13) and free us from the law of sin and death (Romans 8:2) which in turn gives us dominion over sin (Romans 6:14).
“5 For they that are after the flesh do mind the things of the flesh; but they that are after the Spirit the things of the Spirit.
6 For to be carnally minded is death; but to be spiritually minded is life and peace.” Romans 8:5-6
The modern church has taken up the precepts of the world for victory and forsaken God’s Plan for His Children, namely faith in Jesus Christ and Him crucified. Those who have come to the knowledge of this great Truth cannot heal the modern spiritual Babylon but they can call God’s Children out and warn them of the apostasy. Jesus is outside of the church knocking on individual hearts, calling them out. Can you hear what the Spirit of the Lord is saying to the churches?
Prayerfully consider. The Lord will lead you out if you will hear.
