This is a snitppet of an e-mail that i sent to someone who asked me 'how do we as Christians leave Babylon?
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.
Thank you (name withheld), Well I can say that you have asked an excellent question! How do we, as real Christians, leave Babylon? First and foremost, I believe that Babylon, the entity that Christians are to leave at a specific point in time, is a City (Rev 17:18). It is, as the article that you are reading says, the city of New York. All of the parameters are met for NY being the great City that reigns over the kings of the earth. I do not believe that call has gone out to all Christians yet, though many have already been commanded to leave and have done so. However there are many aspects to Babylon. There is the city, the nation, the religious system, the economic system and the political system. They are all connected but not exactly the same. One cannot escape all of her clutches on this earth unless he or she is homeless and without any money, for all nations have been infected with her vileness. I do not dispute that the Catholic Church and the vast majority of Protestant denominations are infected with the spirit of Babylon. I put the Babylon article on my site to show how America is fulfilling the Economic and Political aspects of Babylon. There will be a time I believe, that we as Christians are told to leave Babylon-America that time is not yet upon us. I have begged God for many years now to allow me to leave America. He has not allowed it yet. I am to stay where I am until the appointed time. I will be obedient. We must operate on earth and to some degree that means making use of Mammon. There is no way around it at this time. But soon I think that will change. And I say unto you, Make to yourselves friends of the mammon of unrighteousness; that, when ye fail, they may receive you into everlasting habitations. (Luke 16:9) There are many interpretations of this verse but I take it to mean that we as Christians must operate with the system of Mammon at least to some degree, therefore we are to operate within the system so that when it (mammon fails) we can save some souls. Notice that most ancient manuscripts actually say ‘when it fails’ rather than ‘when ye fail’. We are in the world and not of it. There are things that we must do while there is still light. God has put some in Corporate America, others are still in Government, though I think that number is very, small. Others are doing many different things in the system. We are not to condemn others because we do not know what or why God has those people where they are. Here is the key. Can YOU, if asked tomorrow, leave whatever it is that you do for money, your homes and even earthly loves, and follow wherever God leads without hesitation? If so, you have already left mammon (Babylon) in a very important sense. Interestingly Mammon is a Chaldee (Babylonian) word that means riches. It is very interesting that God used this Babylonian word to describe worldly economics. Go where God’s spirit leads you, if you do that you are out of Mammon, but the call will go forth one day, I believe, to get out of New York and quite possibly out of America. I think that a horrible persecution is coming to America in the near future. The current detention centers used for ‘terrorists’ today will be used on Christians soon. The legal precedent is set. They only need to associate Christians with Terrorism and you will see the saints in concentration camps. But let us be certain that we are really living for Christ and not for Mammon. Many have successfully fooled themselves into believing that they are out of the system when they are really serving mammon and have put Christ in the closet, hung up next to that old pair of trouser that have not been worn in years. I wish I could give you a list of do’s and don’t s or tell you to flee to the mountains and live off the land, some have and have been blessed because of it. I can only say that the less we depend on the system for our needs the better off we are. There are many who believe that we should burn birth certificates and not use SSN’s. I do not think it necessary, though it is certainly no sin if you do. Everyone must draw their ‘line in the sand’ and know how far they will go in using mammon and not allowing themselves to be ensnared by it. Every time we touch a dollar bill, we touch an unclean thing, what with that satanic pyramid and occult symbology on it. However, should we live in poverty and want? No. Even in Christ’s time they used the money with the Deified Emperor engraved on it, and Christ even had Peter pay taxes to the emperor. So this is mammon and as long as we are fully aware of what we are dealing with and are wise as serpents and as harmless as doves and really obey the Holy Spirit within us we will be fine. God is not going to trick his sheep, he will make his commands very clear for us to understand if we really want to know, and I suspect that you really do. I Praise God for that. Here I will exhort you as the Lord exhorted me just last night. Cease from worry. (Phill 4:6) Put no faith in man. (Isiah 2:22) Have confidence (faith) in God. (Mark 11:2) Stand back and watch what the LORD does (Exodus 32:9-11) as he is angry about many things going on in the world.
