Babylon and Its System, Part 4

Those Christians living during the coming Tribulation will be very tempted to become part of the Babylon system – religiously, economically, politically and socially – and may even want to move to that location to be closer to the action. The fact that once destroyed, Babylon becomes a haunt of demons, unclean spirits, birds and beasts probably affirms the fact that this Babylon in Revelation 17/18 is a real, physical place if physical birds and beasts can dwell there.

Babylon and Its System, Part 1

But Babylon is not simply the apostate religious system in all its forms. It also includes and is undergirded by the economic system that holds it up. This is what Revelation 18 is all about as it shows us a Babylon that is an economic system.

Charles G. Finney: Hero or Heretic?

It seems at every turn, Finney objected to and repudiated sound doctrine, replacing it with his own philosophizing and morality. But we know that our “morality” is filth compared to God’s own righteousness. We know that nothing man can do will help us overcome our sinful condition. That required Another to do what man cannot. Yet, it is clear from his own writings that Finney completely rejected the entire idea of Christ as our propitiation.

What is Revival?

James talks about living the life of a Christian. In fact, his entire epistle breaks down into concrete ways in which Christians are to live practically speaking. Paul does the same thing, as did Jesus. Ephesians 2:10 says, “For we are his workmanship, created in Christ Jesus for good works, which God prepared beforehand, that we should walk in them.” (ESV)

Truth Suppression

It is becoming very difficult to be a Christian in today’s society because of the way the world suppresses the truth in many areas. Authentic Christians are caught in the crosshairs largely because God and the Bible are caught in the crosshairs. We are coming to a time when I can see churches which believe and follow the absolute truth of Scripture will become smaller and smaller. It would not surprise me frankly, if many of the Christians within these churches resort to meeting in people’s homes, not for the purpose of starting what they hope will be a huge church, but because truth will become so difficult to find in too many churches. Those churches will be interested in pleasing the crowd and in so doing, will become part of the group that suppresses truth.

Vexing of Our Souls?

What are we Christians doing today? Sure, many of us are fighting the good fight of patriotism. We support President Trump and want what is best for the United States of America. Other Christians in foreign nations are trying to do the same thing.

But shouldn’t we also be using our frustration, vexation and feeling provoked within to bring the Gospel message to the masses who so desperately need it? Shouldn’t this be our reaction to the deep-seated hatred emanating from the godless Left?
