Be not cut off in her iniquity; (compare with Revelation 18;4-6.) for this is the time of the Lord's vengeance (bringing of truth), He will render unto her a recompense." This is the time, right in the middle of all this Spiritual mess, right now! today, this is when the church world is in trouble; think about what you've studied! Put it in the balances and weigh it, weigh it all; it's almost inconceivable, but this is the end of this era, it's hard to deny facts ... Read Isaiah 35; 3-10 and compare it with Revelation 18:8, 20, 21... 19:2. Jeremiah 51:7, "Babylon hath been a golden cup in the Lord's hand, that hat made all the earth (carnal-minded) drunken: The nations have drunken of her wine; therefore the nations (religions) are mad."

......... How's that? There is the condition of your Christendom - mad! Spiritually insane because of total confusion, because of the lie. Compare Revelation 17:2-5. Jeremiah 51:8, "Babylon is suddenly fallen and destroyed: (in one hour) howl for her; take balm (balm; healing oil, spiritual truth) for her pain, if so she maybe healed." Is she healed yet? 51:9, "We would have healed Babylon, but she is not healed: (nor will she ever be, that's why she is to be destroyed) Forsake her, and let us go everyone into his own country (or let everyone work out his own salvation with fear and trembling): for her judgment reacheth unto heaven, and is lifted up even to the skies (compare with Revelation 18:4-8)." Jere: 51:10; "The Lord hath brought forth our righteousness: Come and let us declare in Zion (those who know the truth) the work of the Lord our God." See Rev. 19: 2-8. To him that understands, let him take heed. Until now God is telling those that know His voice, to get out of Babylon, for He is going to punish her with the sword of truth which His chosen and faithful will fight with (or, explain the truth). In the verses to follow He shows us in many ways, methods for punishment of Babylon. Also what clues to look for.

51:11, "Make bright the arrows; (of light and truth) gather the shield (See Ephesians 6:10-18): the Lord hath raised up the spirit of the kings of the Medes (the Medes were a rude and uncultivated race; joined with Babylon 538 B.C. He is bringing the Medes as with the Chaldeans.... A rude and uncultivated race. .): for his device is against Babylon, to destroy it; because it is the vengeance of the Lord,.... the vengeance of His temple (see lst. Cor. 3:16,17)." Jeremiah 51:12; "Set up the watchmen prepare the ambushes (get ready to help destroy Babylon): for the Lord hath both' devised and done that which He spake of the inhabitants of Babylon." Which is a perpetual destruction. Verse 13 is a clue that Jeremiah is prophesying against the same Babylon spoken of in Revelation 17:1,15,18, so, this chapter has not come to pass, if it has, then Jesus (truth) has already come to the Bride as it says He will in the first ten verses of Revelation 19, after Babylon's destruction. Also see Ezekiel, chapter 7, about her end.

Jeremiah 51:13; O thou that dwellest upon many waters (multitudes, nations and tongues - religions - Ezekiel 16 (Mary Magdalene played the harlot) abundant in treasures, thine end is come, and the measure of thy covetousness." 51:14, "The Lord of Host hath sworn by Himself, saying, surely I will fill thee with men (carnal attitudes), as with Caterpillars (a moth like larva which eats away slowly - perpetually); and they shall lift up a shout against thee." 51:15 "He hath made the earth by His Power, He hath established the world by His Wisdom, and hath stretched out the heavens by His understanding." See Revelation 4:11. lst. Cor. 1:24. Hebrews 1:10. Also chapter 8 of Proverbs, for it is the Word of Truth (wisdom) speaking through the writer of Jeremiah. Jere: 10:13; "When He uttereth His voice, there is a multitude of waters in the heavens: He causeth the vapors to ascend from the ends of the earth (all religions):

He maketh lightnings with rain, and bringeth forth the wind out of His treasures." Jeremiah 10:14, "Every man is brutish by his knowledge; every founder is confounded by the graven image (impressive or implanted - the image is the doctrine they have chosen to believe in; a doctrine cut out from the scriptures, it was graven from the Word): for his molten image (carnal-teachings) is falsehood, and there is no breath (life, living Spirit) in them." The word molten means, formed to suit. 51:18, "They are vanity.... The work of errors: in the time of their visitation they shall perish. Jeremiah " 51:19 "The portion of Jacob (symbolic for Jesus) is not like them: for He is the former of all things: and Israel is the rod of his inheritance: the Lord of host is His name." What He is saying is, the Holy Spirit and all those of the Holy Spirit are not like the ones in Babylon or, traditional Christendom.

Next, God tells us how He is going to use His chosen for the battle against the system, the terrible image; the beast. Jeremiah 51:20, "Thou art my battle axe and weapons of war: for with thee will I break in pieces the nations, and with thee will I destroy kingdoms (religions - kingdoms)." 51:91, "And with thee will I break in pieces the horse and his rider (the doctrines and those in them); and with thee will I break in pieces the chariot and his rider (those who are carried along with their doctrine);" 51:22, "With thee also will I break in pieces MAN and WOMAN (sects, cults, groups of whatever; worshipers that worship with their mouth and not their heart); and with thee will I break in pieces old and young (old traditions etc. Young, that which is new - doctrine) and with thee will I break in pieces the young man and the maid" (any and all new ways to worship - and all that do so). Jeremiah 51:23, "I will also break in pieces with thee the shepherd and his flock; and with thee will I break in pieces the husbandman and his yoke of oxen (administrators and their scholars); and with thee will I break in pieces captains and rulers (popes, bishops, priest, preachers, teachers, dictators etc.)."

Jesus (the Living Word) is the captain of The True Sons Of God. Jeremiah 51:24, "And I will render unto Babylon and to all the inhabitants of Chaldea all their evil that they have done in Zion (see Rev. 19-20) in your sight, saith the Lord." Jeremiah 51:25, "Behold, I am against thee, 0 destroying mountain (Christendom), saith the Lord, which destroyest all the earth (people, see Rev. 18:24) and I will stretch out mine hand (Word) upon thee, and roll thee down from the rocks (down from your high place where you sit as the rock of salvation, even till now), and I will make thee a burnt ("Our God is a consuming fire") mountain." See Revelations 18:8. Deuteronomy 32:22. Job 28:9. Chapter 34, and 41:15. Ezekiel 39:20. Micah 1:2-4.

Jeremiah 51-26, "And they shall not take of thee a stone (doctrine) for a corner, nor a stone for foundations; but thou shalt be desolate forever, thus saith the Lord." Jesus is the true Son's - stone, He is the foundation of the true faith, He is the stone the builders set at nought; see Isaiah 28:16. Acts 4:10-12. Matt. 21:42. Mark 12:10. Luke 20:17. lst. Peter 2:3-8. Jeremiah 5l:27; "Set ye up a standard in the land (authoritative rule - in the religions), blow the trumpet among the nations [religions], prepare the nations against her, call together against her the kingdoms of Ararat, Minni and Ashchenaz (these three cities are spiritual barbarians, destroyers of Babylon); Appoint a captain against her; cause the horses (strength, doctrine, truth, the destroying wind) to come up as the rough caterpillars." This is the perpetual destruction, this is now underway in 1968.

Jeremiah 51:28 "Prepare against her the nations with the kings of the Medes, the Captains thereof, and all the Rulers thereof, and all the land (like-minded) of his dominion." 51:29, "And the land shall tremble and sorrow: for every purpose of the Lord shall be performed against Babylon, to make the land of Babylon a desolation without an inhabitant." See Rev. 18:19. 51:30, "The mighty men of Babylon have forborne to fight, they have remained in their holds: Their might hath failed; they became as women (weak): they have burned her dwelling places; her bars are broken." She has no more holding power, her spiritual strongholds, i.e. bars are broken. 51:31 "One post shall run to meet another, (post-news carrier - rumor, teacher) and one messenger to meet another, to shew the king of Babylon that his city is taken at one end or, truth has hit the system.

Jeremiah 51:32, "And that the passages are stopped (doctrinal flow), and the reeds they have burned with fire (the soundings of their proclamation), and the men of war were affrighted." The men of war in this case would be the extremely educated men of Babylon, Christendom, and those that advocate her doctrines; such as, it's leading ministers and theologians and any and all of that city. 51:33, "For thus saith the Lord of Host, the God of Israel; the daughter of Babylon is like a threshing floor, it is time to thresh her: yet a little while, and the time of her harvest shall come."

Jeremiah 51:36 "Therefore thus saith the lord, behold, I will plead thy cause, and take vengeance for thee; and I will dry up her sea (confusion of doctrine - water - wine - etc.), and make her springs dry." 51:37 "And Babylon shall become heaps (see Isaiah 25:1, 2. Jeremiah 9:11, 12. Rev. 18:2.), a dwelling place for dragons, an astonishment, and an hissing, without an inhabitant." See Jeremiah 25:4-19. Zephaniah 2:15. Jeremiah 51: 38, "They shall roar together like lions (by the choice of their words): they shall yell as lions' whelps." Beat you with their words.

51:39, "In their heat I will make their feast (it will be delusion), and I will make them drunken (spiritually mad), that they may rejoice (because they think they are right, see St. John 5:39), and sleep a perpetual sleep (as you can see, this is true now), and not awake, sayeth the Lord." Jeremiah 51:40 "I will bring them down like lambs to the slaughter, like rams with he goats (to go down blindly - fighting)." 51:41 "How is Sheshack (symbolic for Babylon) taken! and how is the praise of the whole earth surprised! how is BabyIon become an astonishment among the nations!" See Revelation 18. 51:24 "The sea (total confusion) is come upon Babylon: She is covered with the multitude of the waves thereof." Jeremiah 51:43 "Her cities are a desolation, a dry land, a wilderness, a land wherein no man dwelleth, neither doth any son of man pass thereby." For she is exposed of her true values, falsehood, lies, etc..

51:44, "And I will punish Bel (evil serpent, enticing spirit) in Babylon, and I will bring forth out of his mouth that which he hath swallowed up: and the nations shall not flow together anymore unto him (the teachings): Yea, the wall (veil - lie) of Babylon shall fall." Jeremiah 51:45 "My people, go ye out of the midst of her, and deliver ye every man his soul from the fierce anger of the Lord." Also Rev. 18:4.

The rest of this chapter is identical with what we have studied thus far, you will notice word changes but this adds to the spiritual bones, meat and spice which will give you a blessing. Now turn to Revelation 19:1, "And after these things (of chapters 17 and 18 of Revelation) I heard a great voice of much people in heaven, saying, Alleluia; Salvation, and Glory, and Honor, and Power, unto the Lord our God." Rev. 19:2; "For true and righteous are His judgments: For He hath judged the great whore, which did corrupt the earth (all scriptural knowledge that is carnal) with her fornication, and hath avenged the blood of His servants at her hand (her own words)."

So Babylon has fallen and been judged, what happens now? Go to verse 7. Rev. 19:7; "Let us be glad and rejoice, and give honor to Him: For the marriage of the Lamb is come, and His wife hath made herself ready." Notice hath? The Bride hath... made herself ready; during the time she was called out. Revelation 18:4. "O Jerusalem, Jerusalem, which killest the prophets (the Jerusalem which is in bondage with her children), and stonest (condemned) them that are sent unto thee; how often would I have gathered thy children together, as a hen doth her brood under her wings, and ye would not! Behold, your house is left unto you desolate: and verily I say unto you, ye shall not see me, until the time come when ye shall say, blessed is he that cometh in the name of the Lord (the truth)."

Luke 13:34, 35. Even Jesus told them their houses would be left unto them desolate; why? Because "truth" - Jesus" won't be in them! "Ye shall not see me;" until He comes to set up His kingdom, with His bride. What He means by "your houses," is your assemblies, wherever you gather to worship, and also, your mind - your house. Jesus knew that the sheep would be scattered abroad, around the face of the planet; that is why He made that statement. Listen to what God says in Jeremiah 31:10, "Hear The Word Of The Lord, 0 ye nations, and declare it in the isles afar off, and say, He that scattered Israel will gather him (by the same book), and keep Him, as a shepherd does his flock." There is another clue; the Lord scattered and the Lord will gather; Rev. 18:4.

The entire chapter of Jeremiah 31 God tells how He will take care of those He scattered, once He gathers them again. Jesus himself pre-warned us about the church world being divided and set at variance; look at Matthew 10:34 "Think not that I am come to send peace on the earth, I came not to send peace, but a sword." So how can we have peace? Only with the truth, which Christendom does not have, or they wouldn't be begging for what they think it is! The next verse is the fact of our many denominations. St. Matthew 10:35 "For I am come to set a man at variance against his Father, and the daughter against her Mother, and the daughter-in-law against her Mother-in-law." In other words, everyone will believe as they see fit; as they want to see it; the Father a Catholic, the son a Methodist, the Mother a Mormon, etc. etc... And verse 36 is what we have really ended up with, just as He prophesied we would.

Matt. 10:36 "And a man' s foes (spiritual enemy) shall be they of his own household (or mind)." Fact or fiction? Look at you! Micah was so disgusted he prophesied also with an accurate account of the situation, look at the book of Micah, chapter 7 verse 1; "Woe is me, for I am as when they have gathered the summer fruits, as the grape-gleanings of the vintage: There is no cluster to eat: My soul desired the first ripe fruit." Micah 7:2 "The good man has perished out of the earth (the spirit of truth, same as Proverbs 7:19): They (Christendom) hunt every man his brother with a net." Everywhere you turn someone is trying to get you into their church, trap you or make you promise you will attend, either by fear, condemnation, scorn or emotional intimidation; if not their church; any church of your choice; just go - $!

Micah 7:3 "That they may do evil with both hands earnestly, the prince asketh, and the judge asketh for a reward; and the great man he uttereth his mischievous desire: (the leaders and administrators of Christendom are not in business for their health, so they format a program to sell the church going peoples, and the dividends are fantastic, everyone is happy) so they wrap it up." See Jeremiah 5:31. Micah 7:4 "The best of them is as a brier: the most upright is sharper than a thorn hedge: The day of thy watchmen and visitation cometh: Now shall be their perplexity." Or their fall and bewilderment. Micah 7:5 "Trust ye not in a friend, put ye not confidence in a guide: keep the doors of thy mouth from her that lieth in thy bosom." Micah 7:6 "For the son dishounereth the father, the daughter riseth up against her mother, the daughter-in-law against her mother-in-law; and a man's enemies are the men of his own house (or mind)." Just as Jesus said it was; if it is that bad in your own (mind) house, how can you trust strangers of the church world for your food? Think about it........!

Read St. John 14:16, 17, 25, 26. Ch.15:26. Ch. 16:13. Jeremiah 33:17, 18. Should a carnal-mind make intercessions for us? Should it not be our Lord Jesus Christ the Living Word? 0, you mother of harlots! 0, Babylon! 0, Christendom! That you should put your trust in vanity! "Thus saith the Lord God, cursed be the man that trusteth in man, and maketh flesh his arm (or carnal knowledge, their place of trust), and whose heart departeth from the Lord. For he shall be like the heath (wasteland) in the desert, and shall not see when good cometh; but shall inhabit the parched places in the wilderness, in a salt land and not inhabited. Blessed is the man who trusteth in the Lord, and whose hope the Lord is" (Jer. 17:5-7). "Cease ye from man (This can't be literal), whose breath is in his nostrils (nostrils: symbolic of anger): for wherein is he to be accounted of." Isaiah 2:22. Also compare lst John 2:26, 27. Psalms 39:5, 11. "For there is ONE God and ONE mediator between God and men, the man Christ Jesus (by associating the word "Christ," and applying it to Him as man, implies, "the Living Word")." lst Timothy 2:25; "And call no man (carnal - doctrine) your Father upon the earth: for ONE is your Father which is in Heaven (everywhere. Matthew 23:9)." These have been just a few of the scriptures where God warns us about putting our faith in man, or the law, the letter; and those who teach it.

At this time we will go into the study of what Jesus said in Matthew 24 about Daniel and "the abomination that maketh desolate". This is mentioned in Matthew 24:15. And He added whoso readeth let him understand." By this He meant, let him acknowledge the significance between the prophecy of Daniel and Christendom today, compared with the Revelation of Jesus Christ; Revelation 17 and 18. Let's look at Daniel 2, starting with verse 31 where Daniel is talking to King Nebuchadnezzar about his dream of the golden image: Daniel 2:31; "Thou, 0 king, sawest, and behold a great image. This great image, whose brightness was excellent, stood before thee; and the form thereof was terrible." Or beastly. 2:32; "This image's head was of fine gold, his breast and arms of silver, his belly and thighs of brass," 2:33 "his legs of iron, his feet part of iron and part of clay." This image is made up of righteousness, justice (brass-white copper), The foundation is divided, part iron and part clay, overall confusion. 2:34 "Thou sawest till that a stone was cut out without hands (those called out; the body of Christ that came out of the woman or the image; beast. See Rev. 12.). which smote the image upon his feet that were of iron and clay (the foundation on which it stood), and brake them in pieces."

See Rev. 18:21. Daniel 2:35 "Then was the iron, the clay, the brass, the silver, and the gold broken pieces together, and became like chaff of the summer threshing floor; and the wind carried them away, that no place was found for them: And the stone that smote the image became a great mountain, and filled the whole earth (again see Revelation 18:21)". In verse 36 Daniel tells the king he will now be told the interpretation. Daniel 2:37, "Thou, 0 king, art A king of kings: For the god of heaven hath given thee a kingdom, power, and strength, and glory." See 2nd Thessalonians 2:1-12. Daniel 2:38, "And wheresoever the children of men dwell, the beast of the field and the fowls of the heaven hath He given into thine hand (or teachings), and hath made thee ruler over them all. thou art this head of gold."

See Revelation 18:2. 19: 16-21. Daniel, 2:39; "And after thee shall arise another kingdom inferior to thee, and another third kingdom of brass, which shall bear rule over the whole earth." This third kingdom is organized, united - Catholic Jewish and protestant doctrine, and out of these three kingdoms will come the greatest of all, unity in politics, the fourth kingdom. Daniel 2:40; "And the fourth kingdom shall be strong as iron: For as much as iron breaketh in pieces and subdueth all things: and bruise." And this it has done beautifully, again look at the church world situation and try to get the truth without confusion from it,,, "impossible!" ... It has been broken and bruised too badly.

Daniel 2:41; "And whereas thou sawest the feet and toes, part of potter's clay, and part of iron, so the kingdom shall be partly strong, and partly broken." Just as it is today, just enough truth to keep you hanging on for something you never get. 2:43; "And whereas thou sawest iron mixed with miry clay, they shall mingle themselves with the seed of men: But they shall not cleave one to another, even as iron is not mixed with clay." Thus causing a division. Daniel 2:44 "And in the days of these kings shall the God of Heaven set up a kingdom, which shall never be destroyed: and the kingdom shall not be left to other people. But it shall break in pieces and consume all these kingdoms, and it shall stand forever (not yet! Soon!). Compare verse 45 with the following scriptures; Psalms 118:22. Isaiah 28:16-29. 30:8-15. Matthew 21:42-44. Acts 4:10-12. lst Peter 2:1, 10. This is the stone that breaketh in pieces - the lie. And this kingdom, is just about completed.

These references should have made it clear, knowing what you know about Babylon, that Jesus is "The Stone" made without hands, Cut out of the Mountain of God (The Word), and brake in pieces and destroyed the ''terrible image." Daniel said the dream was certain and so was the interpretation. Before we go further in the Book of Daniel I would like to take time to go into a deeper meaning and understanding of the word "abomination," and "the abomination that maketh desolate, and try to place it in history according to its full Spiritual definition and purpose to make desolate. One of Webster's renditions for the word is thus; "extreme hatred; detestation". Another submission offered by Ungers Bible Dictionary defines the word as "filth-unclean", he also states; the practice of sin - such as, "the swellings of pride, lips of falsehood, the sacrifices of the wicked, and the foul rites of idolatry - are stigmatized as abominations." All of these stem from teaching the letter that killeth, not drinking and smoking.

Daniel gives another account of the four kings and the abomination that maketh desolate in chapter 8, verses 19-25. Daniel 8:19; "And He said, behold, I will make thee know what shall be in the last end of the indignation: (God's wrath) for at the time appointed the end shall be." 8:20 "The ram (ayil -- lintle -- post -- upper -- high runners -- advocators. Study the posts and horns and see how they are used allegorically) which thou sawest having two horns are the kings of Media and Persia."

"Media and Persia became a mighty empire lasting until the conquest of Alexander the Great (330 B.C.) The religion of the Medes became Zoroastrianism. This is a dualism with Ahuramazda, "the good," and Ahriman, "the bad." They were remarkable for their humaneness and high moral qualities (according to what they thought God meant)." Excerpts, from Ungers Bible Dictionary. What we have here is two spiritual nations combined, which are, part good and part bad, just as iron and clay, these nations are mighty and noticeable, they have high morals and live according to the carnal nature and according to their own ways. You should be able to recognize this today. See Revelation 3:16. Isaiah 4:1, 2.

Daniel 8:21 "And the rough goat is the king of Grecia: and the great horn (doctrine, etc.) that is between his eyes is the first king" Rough goat; Sair; devil-Satyr: Ethan-hard, mighty and strong. His eyes: All seeing, guiding, power of judging, discerning, seer. Grecia, or Grecians (Hellenist), are referred to as "Greek speaking Jews". Hellen, or heathen - anyone who is not Spiritual - minded; a person regarded as uncivilized, irreligious or pagan". Webster's: Uncivilized, Irreligious and pagan is the first king .... The setting up of the Roman Catholic. See Foxe's Book of Martyrs and or study the History of the Roman Catholic Church. Also read Revelation, 2:9, 3:9. Romans 2: 28, 29. Galatians 4: 5-7.

Daniel 8:22 should be compared with the following scriptures: Ezekiel 14:21. Zechariah 1:18-21. Jeremiah 15-3. Daniel chapter 7. Proverbs chapter 30. Daniel 8:23 " And in the latter time of their (fourth) kingdom, when the transgressors (carnal-minded) are come to the full (now), a king of fierce Countenance (one political religious system for all - out of Christendom), and understanding dark sentences shall stand up." See Daniel 8:8-12. Daniel 8:24; "And his power shall be mighty, but not by his own power: and he shall destroy wonderfully, and shall prosper, and practice, and shall destroy the mighty and Holy people."

Daniel 8:25 "And through his policy also he shall cause craft to prosper in his hand: (craft -- guile-slyness - in their philosophy) and he shall magnify himself in his heart, and by PEACE (one world government) shall destroy many ( see 2nd. Thessalonians chapter 2.): He shall also stand up against the prince of princes: but he shall be broken without hand." See Revelation 17:13.14. Daniel 2:34.45. Jeremiah 51:60-64. Rev. 18:20, 21. As you can see, this is a spiritual battle. Now notice in Daniel 8:13: Daniel heard one of the saints speak; "How long shall be the vision concerning the daily sacrifice, and the transgression of desolation, to give both the sanctuary and the host to be trodden under foot?" Notice now, Daniel 11:31, "And arms (support) shall stand on his part, and they shall pollute the sanctuary of strength (truth), and shall take away the daily sacrifice, and they shall place the abomination that maketh desolate (confusion)."

The rest of this chapter coincides with Daniel 8 and concludes in verse 45; "when he shall come to his end and none shall help him." Daniel 12:1. "And at that time shall Michael (who is like God?) stand up, the great prince which standeth for the children of thy people. And there shall be a time of trouble, such as never was since there was a nation even to that same time (Matthew chapter 24): and at that time thy people shall be delivered, everyone that shall be found written in the book (or that are spiritual-minded)." Rev. 18:4. Daniel 12:2 "And many of them that sleep in the dust of the earth (carnal-teachings or beliefs) shall awake, some to everlasting life, and some to shame and everlasting contempt." See Ephesians 5:1-19. Isaiah chapter 52. Ist. Corinthians 15:50-54. 1st. Thessalonians 4:11-18. Also study chapter 7 of Ezekiel concerning her end; see Isaiah chapter one.

Now you can understand what Jesus meant when He said, "When ye therefore shall see the abomination of desolation, spoken of by Daniel the prophet. Stand in the Holy place" (WHOSO READETH, LET HIM UNDERSTAND): The abomination that maketh desolate is the carnal Christendom. For through Her power (and politics) she has slain many and caused them to err from the spiritual word of truth. See Proverbs 7:24-27. Note Romans 11:25 "For I would not, brethren, that ye should be ignorant of this mystery, lest ye should be wise in your own conceits; that blindness in part is happened to Israel (the righteous in the system) until the fullness of the gentiles be come in." Gentile, meaning; Ethnos, which is Hebrew for "heathen nation" Goi; Another people, Strange, Heathen, Desolate, Irreligious, Pagan, Uncivilized, non-Spiritual; Christendom. Read the 23rd. chapter of Jeremiah concerning Their Priest and Prophets.
