Fall of a Nation by Anthony Smith
The Fall of a Nation, Babylon is Fallen. Is United States , Spiritual Babylon ? Jer.51:6-18. I read an artical other day, concerning vast wealth of America and massive influence that she has over rest of world. Most banking systems are located in New York City, Gold ,Silver, Diamonds and all manner of costly stones and commerce is located here. International travel is centered here and major religions around world look at her. Most commentators look at Kingdom of Chaldes as Babylon, which is probably correct, but we are looking at spiritual Babylon. Syria, Egypt, Iran, Iraq, Saudi Arabia, Russia, China all combined together, constitute a spiritual and physical Babylon, because of vast wealth and resources they poses. In my opinion these will in time constitute a great threat to Israel and her soventry and safety. Russia will try to exploit Israel as she prospers, and according to prophecy, Israel will bloom. China will, collaborate with Syria and rest of nations, under leadership of anti-christ, to destroy Israel, at battle of Armageddon. The question here is, America, spiritual Babylon. In past 60 years, America has become center of commerce, and religion. She has been dubbed, Golden one of all nations, for wealth power and knowledge. Knowledge has been increased, we can even clone animals, probably even people. All Nations are jealous of her and have become drunk on her way of life. You’ve herd other nations talk about western influence, on clothes, movies, music, food, and freedom, their talking about things that America offers world. The United States Supreme Court in 1865 , stated that this Nation was “CHRISTIAN” and owed everything to its creator. What has happened sense to change such a dramatic statement? Have we forgotten our Creator, have we forgotten all that He has done for us? Lets look at some scripture, then you can decide for yourself. Jer. 51:6-18, “BABYLON HATH BEEN A GOLDEN CUP IN THE lORDS HAND,that made all earth drunken;the nations have drunk of her wine;therefore nations are mad. ,.....WE would have healed Babylon, but she is not healed; forsake her and let us go everyone into his own country....for His device is against Babylon to destroy it...” This is a nation of power, a nation of influence, a nation of back-sliders, a nation that has turned
Thou Shalt Not.Written by Rev.Anthony Smith
Have you ever read Ten Commandments and paused at words, “Thou Shalt Not?”I have read many an artical condemning Ministers for speaking out against, sin, unrighteousness, life styles contrary to Commandments of God and Christ, and believe it or not, these condemnations are coming not from unsaved but Christian. So I thought about scriptures and words “Thou Shalt Not?” Words have become a weapon for many who don't understand ”Thou Shalt Not of scripture, such as, “Love one another, Judge not that ye shall not be judged, God loves everyone, Jesus loves all man so let LIFESTYLES of those people be allright.I don't understand why Preachers use specific passages in Bible to make their point,Preachers are either Far Right or Far Left,We cant single out organizations because of what they believe and teach, people of alternate lifestyles can be Christians too.” Words,Words,Words. Many are using Word of God to justify unrighteousness of others, so lets see some words from God. Mark 7:13 Making word of God of none effect through your tradition, which ye have delivered: and many such like things do ye. Matthew 15:3 But he answered and said unto them, Why do ye also transgress commandment of God by your tradition? Matthew 22:35 Then one of them, which was a lawyer, asked him a question, tempting him, and saying,......... Rom 2:19 And art confident that thou thyself art a guide of blind, a light of them which are in darkness, Rom 2:20 An instructor of foolish, a teacher of babes, which hast form of knowledge and of truth in law. Rom 2:21 Thou therefore which teachest another, teachest thou not thyself? thou that preachest a man should not steal, dost thou steal? Rom 2:22 Thou that sayest a man should not commit adultery, dost thou commit adultery? thou that abhorrest idols, dost thou commit sacrilege? Rom 2:23 Thou that makest thy boast of law, through breaking law dishonourest thou God? Rom 2:24 For name of God is blasphemed among Gentiles through you, as it is written. Rom 2:25 For circumcision verily profiteth, if thou keep law: but if thou be a breaker of law, thy circumcision is made uncircumcision. Rom 2:26 Therefore if uncircumcision keep righteousness of law, shall not his uncircumcision be counted for circumcision? Rom 2:27 And shall not uncircumcision which is by nature, if it fulfil law, judge thee, who by letter and circumcision dost transgress law? Rom 2:28 For he is not a Jew, which is one outwardly; neither is that circumcision, which is outward in flesh: Rom 2:29 But he is a Jew, which is one inwardly; and circumcision is that of heart, in spirit, and not in letter; whose praise is not of men, but of God. Mat 22:38 This is first and great commandment. “Love Lord thy God with all thy heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy mind.” Mat 22:39 And second is like unto it, Thou shalt love thy neighbour as thyself. Mat 5:27 Ye have heard that it was said by them of old time, “Thou shalt not.....”: Mat 19:18 ....... Jesus said, Thou shalt do no....., Thou shalt not......, Thou shalt not......, Thou shalt not......, Lets look a little closer at some of Gods Words. 1. Making word of God of none effect through your tradition. Have many Christians, as did Pharisies, become wrapped up in Traditions. Not looking into scripture any further that Crucification and Resurrection of Christ. Have they stopped at Salvation and Baptism and neglected Weightier matters of The Gospel of Christ. The Gospel of Jesus Christ does not stop at John. The Gospel of Jesus starts at Genesis and ends with Revelations. 2.which ye have delivered. Many Christians are making Mistake of allowing others, whom are lost, to live alternate lifestyles and alternate religions, without speaking out against unrighteousness and sinfulness of their choices, not trying to warn them of consequences of their actions. Mankind has right to make His own choice, weather to believe or not to believe in Gods word, but Jesus commanded us to warn them, not to keep silent or fight for them to remain lost. Thats right, I said, Fight for them to remain Lost.When Christians dictate to Ministers of God, what to preach and what not to Preach, we become Transgressers of Law of God. 3.transgress commandment of God What are Commandments of God, are they guidelines for Christians to live by or are they points that can be changed or debated among ourselves? We Cannot follow after Traditions of Man, we are only subject to Laws of Man that are Lawful to us, that do not deter us from worshiping God. Lets read a little from Isaiah. Isaiah 1:16-21 Wash you, make you clean; put away evil of your doings from before mine eyes; cease to do evil Learn to do well; seek judgment, relieve oppressed, judge fatherless, plead for widow.
