4 I heard another voice from heaven, saying, “Come out of her, my people, so that you will not participate in her sins and receive any of her plagues;5 for her sins have piled up as high as heaven, and God has remembered her offenses. 6 Pay her back even as she has paid, and give back to her double according to her deeds; in the cup which she has mixed, mix twice as much for her.
I thank God that I was a history buff before I gave myself to Christ, and by His grace, help from His spirit, and reading and studying His word, I can understand scripture and wisdom from God above. Revelation 18 is a warning from God, to the children He loves. Come out of that harlot Babylonian church, or you will perish with her. The Babylonian church sugarcoats scripture, much like the serpent sugarcoat God’s word to Eve. Telling the first woman God ever made, wife of Adam and mother of all human race. Surely you won’t die if you eat that forbidden fruit, and like a foolish person, Eve trusted the Devil and we are still suffering from it. Prophecy about the harlot church is also called Babylon for several reasons. When the people of Israel were in captivity in the Empire of Babylon, they adopted Babylonian traditions and merged them with their Hebrew religion. They had no problem adopting paganism. Most of it was because the Hebrew men who were supposed to be leaders of the household would marry Babylonian women and exchange the religion of their fathers, both earthly and heavenly, for the love of a woman. Scripture calls such relationship forbidden, both Old and New Testament. If a man is so weak and loves his wife’s ways over His Creator God, he has made his wife, his idol and god. The only major issue with this practice is that if the husband and wife are worshiping falsehood, their children will too. That is how traditions make weak hearts blind to the truth of their first love of God’s word. From the book of Judges, Samson falls into the trap of loving the wrong woman. His parents warned him, but poor Samson became a blind prisoner. When Samson gave his heart back to God, the Lord used Samson’s strength to destroy the temple full of pagan worshippers.
Judges 14:2 When he returned home, he told his father and mother, “A young Philistine woman in Timnah caught my eye. I want to marry her. Get her for me.”3 His father and mother objected. “Isn’t there even one woman in our tribe or among all the Israelites you could marry?” they asked. “Why must you go to the pagan Philistines to find a wife?” But Samson told his father, “Get her for me! She looks good to me.”
Judges 16:28 Then Samson called to the Lord and said, “Lord God, please remember me and please strengthen me just this time, O God, that I may at once take vengeance on the Philistines for my two eyes.” 29 Then Samson grasped the two middle pillars on which the house rested, and braced himself against them, the one with his right hand and the other with his left. 30 And Samson said, “Let me die with the Philistines!” And he pushed outwards powerfully, so that the house fell on the governors and all the people who were in it. And the dead whom he killed at his death were more than those whom he killed during his lifetime.
2 Corinthians 6:14 Do not be unequally yoked together with unbelievers. For what fellowship has righteousness with lawlessness? And what communion has light with darkness? 15 And what accord has Christ with Belial? Or what part has a believer with an unbeliever? 16 And what agreement has the temple of God with idols? For you are the temple of the living God. As God has said: “I will dwell in them and walk among them. I will be their God, And they shall be My people.” 17 Therefore “Come out from among them And be separate, says the Lord. Do not touch what is unclean, And I will receive you.”18 “I will be a Father to you, And you shall be My sons and daughters, Says the Lord Almighty.”6:14 Do not be unequally yoked together with unbelievers. For what fellowship has righteousness with lawlessness? And what communion has light with darkness? 15 And what accord has Christ with Belial?

The Harlot Babylonian church of the book of Revelation is a church that teaches the opposite of God’s word. It has scripture mixed with paganism. The God Creator of the Old Testament is the same as the New Testament, sadly many believe that isn’t true. The Old and New Covenant have the same 10 Commandments and the same Lord whose law is the image of His character. When the Roman Empire adopted Christianity as the state religion, it merged it with paganism in Babylonian ways. Roman Catholic Church documents, will state, it can rearrange God’s commandments because it has the authority to do so, but that my friend is an Antichrist philosophy. The second commandment was removed, which is how it justifies its idol worship. The fourth seventh-day Sabbath commandment was moved to the Catholic commandment. To swift Christianity away from the Jewish roots, Sabbath was also moved to the 1st day of the week. The so-called Holy Roman Catholic Church, justify the Sabbath being moved by declaring the Lord Jesus rising from the grave on the first day of the week. Therefore, Sunday is the Lord’s holy day of rest. But nowhere in God’s holy word was Sabbath ever moved, and no church or mankind can do such, but only God can declare anything holy or set apart. The great reformation began. Sunday was already a tradition many have worshiped and called the Sabbath. Centuries later, many churches still worship on the false Sabbath, and many believe the 10 commandments are abolished. This is the reason Revelation chapter 18, the Babylonian church and her flock sins are piled as high as heaven because they have forgotten the one commandment God the Creator said to remember. And honestly believe God’s word, say is okay to obey traditions but forsake the commandments. Therefore, lawlessness increases in the final days because the Antichrist church teaches and the lukewarm Christians trust and obey the whore church. God bless you all, the Lord of the Sabbath Jesus loves you, and so do I. His bondservant, Samuel J Head.
Hebrews 4:8 For if Joshua had given them rest, He would not have spoken of another day after that. 9 Consequently, there remains a Sabbath rest for the people of God. 10 For the one who has entered His rest has himself also rested from his works, as God did from His. 11 Therefore let’s make every effort to enter that rest so that no one will fall by following the same example of disobedience. 12 For the word of God is living and active, and sharper than any two-edged sword, even penetrating as far as the division of soul and spirit, of both joints and marrow, and able to judge the thoughts and intentions of the heart. 13 And there is no creature hidden from His sight, but all things are open and laid bare to the eyes of Him to whom we must answer.
