Laodecia and Babylon

Posted Jan 28, 2012 by Bana Puru in General Hits: 2,441

When turning to the Sacred Passages of Revelation, the Lord has revealed two messages given in these days.

Here we have two messages, for two churches. Each message has simiarities, but are direct at two churches.

The first message we have is to Laodecia.

It is written...

"And unto the angel of the church of the Laodiceans write; These things saith the Amen, the faithful and true witness, the beginning of the creation of God; I know thy works, that thou art neither cold nor hot: I would thou wert cold or hot. So then because thou art lukewarm, and neither cold nor hot, I will spue thee out of my mouth. Because thou sayest, I am rich, and increased with goods, and have need of nothing; and knowest not that thou art wretched, and miserable, and poor, and blind, and naked: I counsel thee to buy of me gold tried in the fire, that thou mayest be rich; and white raiment, that thou mayest be clothed, and that the shame of thy nakedness do not appear; and anoint thine eyes with eyesalve, that thou mayest see. As many as I love, I rebuke and chasten: be zealous therefore, and repent." Revelation 3 :14-19

When look at the above quotation, what we see here is that this church of Laodecia is neither "hot" nor Cold", but that it is "luke warm". Because of this condition, the message is that "...I will spew thee out of my mouth".

Because this church "sayeth (professes), I am rich, and increased with goods, and have need of nothing" yet it does not know that it is "wretched, and miserables, and poor, and blind and naked"

The church here does not realises these things and is in a "stupid" state of being.

This description fits the SDA church here today.

The message given to this church is thus...
"I counsel thee to buy of me gold tried in the fire, that thou mayest be rich; and white raiment, that thou mayest be clothed, and that the shame of thy nakedness do not appear; and anoint thine eyes with eyesalve, that thou mayest see. As many as I love, I rebuke and chasten: be zealous therefore, and repent."
The message here is to give to the church what it once lost, to have an experience with the Lord that would take them through the test of time. It is to allow the Church to be connected to the vine and allow Gods pruning knife, through tribulation and trials, that our characters may reflect the Lovely image of Jesus. The message of Mercy is to cloth our nakedness withthe righteousness of Jesus. He is wanting to give us spiritual insight and dicernment, so that we may see what time of Day it is. Jesus wants us to reflect him in every aspect and way of our life, so that the Glory of heaven may surround his children. This is the heart of this message.

There is not "coming out" given in the above message, but rather a reformation and revival. A message offering. A message where the Lord is saying...

"O my children, my blessed children, how I long gather thee, even as a mother hen gathers her chiks under her wings..."

Tthe Same message that Jesus anounced in the temple on the Sabbath...

"The Spirit of the Lord is upon me, because he hath anointed me to preach the gospel to the poor; he hath sent me to heal the brokenhearted, to preach deliverance to the captives, and recovering of sight to the blind, to set at liberty them that are bruised..." Luke 4:18

There is no calling out or coming out regarding this message. The Lord wants his children in this church to remember the light that accompanied them in the past experiences that they had, right back to 1844, even to the present day. And by looking back at that Light, we may dicern the glorious future that the Lord hath for the SDA Adventists Movement.

The other message is to Come out of Babylon...

"And after these things I saw another angel come down from heaven, having great power; and the earth was lightened with his glory. And he cried mightily with a strong voice, saying, Babylon the great is fallen, is fallen, and is become the habitation of devils, and the hold of every foul spirit, and a cage of every unclean and hateful bird. For all nations have drunk of the wine of the wrath of her fornication, and the kings of the earth have committed fornication with her, and the merchants of the earth are waxed rich through the abundance of her delicacies. 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." Re 18:1-4

When we look at this message, it is practically a restatement or ellaboration of the three angels messsages in Revelation 14. This angel that descends is re-echoing the same message that is depicted in the three angels message. This time the voice is saying "Come out of her "Babylon/Confusion" My people.

So here we have it...

For the SDA children who are in the state of being luke warm, the Lord says "I will spew thee out of of my mouth".

For Gods people the voice from heaven says "Come out.."

The people that are spewed out, are the tares, and the ones that are left in Babylon are also the tares. The ones that are spewed out, where do they go??? Answer...with the ones that are not called out or rather, do not listen to the heavenly call "Come out of her My people, that you partake not of her sins, nor recieve of her plagues"

Remember the words of Christ "My sheep know my voice, and I know them, and they follow me...I have sheep not of this fold, them must I call also...Father I pray that they may be with me where I am..." Gods people are still in Babylon, bacause Babylon is in them. Thus is to show what is happening, and what is going to happen!

So now we can see that God calls those who were once in Babylon, to reecieve the mercy message given to Laodicea. It is writte...

"Behold, I stand at the door, and knock: if any man hear my voice, and open the door, I will come in to him, and will sup with him, and he with me. To him that overcometh will I grant to sit with me in my throne, even as I also overcame, and am set down with my Father in his throne. He that hath an ear, let him hear what the Spirit saith unto the churches." Rev 3:20-22

This is the invitation for all who are willing to listen and open the door of the heart. He that hath ears to hear, let him hear what our Lord is saying today.

Let none, again I say Let none call the movement that the Lord raised up from 1844 Babylon! By doing this, you will be sure that the Lord will be disappointed, and ith that in mind, will be lead astray to join the ranks of those that oppose the truth as it is in Jesus.

May the Lord bless you My brethren, and I pray that in the Name of our Lord and saviour, Jesus Christ, we may recieve this message given to Laodicea in a childlike and humble spirit.

Grace and peace be unto you.
