  • Melvin McKelvey on Revelation 18
    In Rev 18:4 GOD says "come out of her". Does that mean Babylon or the Catholic church or both?
    Christians today are told, in essence, to "come out of her"; that is, to separate themselves from the wickedness of the world: "Do not be yoked together with unbelievers. For what do righteousness and wickedness have in common? Or what fellowship can light have with darkness? What harmony is there between Christ and Belial? Or what does a believer have in common with an unbeliever? What agreement is there between the temple of God and idols? For we are the temple of the living God. . . . Therefore, 'Come out from them and be separate,' says the Lord. 'Touch no unclean thing, and I will receive you'" ( 2 Corinthians 6:14-17).

    During the tribulation, when the people of the world see the destruction of Babylon the Great, they will mourn the loss of their source of riches and pleasure ( Revelation 18:9, 15, 19).

    I'm not going to disparage on the Catholic Church at large. Not all are the same as the Vatican. I was kind of shocked when the Pope visited Jerusalem and said (on TV), Israel should give over control of the ? Golan Heights to the Palestinians who are occupying it. But the Israelis police it. Lots of Israelis are being shot or injured.

    God CUT A COVENANT WITH ABRAHAM and his wife Sarah. Period. Ishmael has no rights to any part of Jerusalem or the land deeded to Abraham, recorded in the Bible. The Israelis want to build Temple #3. Good news is this: once the Temple is built and animal sacrifices for sin, begin again; Jesus will return and get His Church (Christians) off this planet. Watch the Israel news with Erick Stakelbeck and subscribe (on YouTube) so you can keep an eye on the progress.

    American news media barely reports on Israel news.

    FYI. You might look at all the Palestinian preaching on YouTube about the MAHDI they are looking for. I can't believe I'm banned off youtube and then they allow militant preaching about the Mahdi ?!?

    We'll see more legislation against left and right. Algorithms are in use. Now is the dying moments of free speech.

    I'm looking for evangelism to come back__when people speak to each other again. Our testimonies of how we came to believe in Jesus, are valuable.

    It's sort of like Jonah. He wanted to run away from Gods call on his life. Eventually he complies, and a whole nation repented.

    Social media has become too violent. I'm praying for more and more Bible websites like this one, to spring up.

    Luke 11:30 - For as Jonas was a sign unto the Ninevites, so shall also the Son of man be to THIS generation.

    Five Crowns in Heaven:

    The Imperishable Crown

    The Crown of Rejoicing

    The Crown of Righteousness

    The Crown of Glory

    The Crown of Life

    The difference is, in Stephens day the crowds stoned people with actual stones. In 2022, they stone people with words. I think Jonah wasn't stoned. The story says the whole city (Google history) Repented.

    We just have to figure out what 2022 looks like as far as:

    In the days of Noah

    In the days of Jonah

    Before I found this site , two or three years ago , I found quite a few other so called Christian sites . The Bible was never discussed on any of them , they were basically people bitching about and judging others on the site . I made a Bible reference about not judging one another on one of those sites and was shot down in flames by everyone on there for using the Bible against them . Oh the irony ! There's definately a difference between Christian sites and Bible sites , give me a Bible site any day , there are far too many people who call themselves Christians who make no effort at all to understand any of the Word of God and they actually resent others who do make the effort and who know something about the Bible . They complain that people who know the Bible are just trying to make them ( the ones who don't even want to know ) feel bad or guilty for not wanting to read it . I'm not kidding ,I wish I was . Stick with us , we are all imperfect on here but the vast majority on here are willing to learn from each other and help each other and are genuinely interested and want to know what God says .

    I've heard commentary that Babylon represents the Roman Catholic Church, and I can accept that application, but I think it is a more appropriate application to say Babylon represents the formerly Christian nation of America that has become apostate during the last days. Babylon in Revelation is a "city" full of people doing great business and making tradesmen around the world rich through commerce. The Catholic Church is primarily guilty of making its officers rich, but not enriching world businessmen so much.
