The Cause of Societal Change

The Fall of Babylon LCCN2002706348

Babylon is fallen. There are going to be consequences and repercussions to those things which are not rooted in the kingdom of heaven. Babylon will be thrown down like a millstone.

Malachi 3:2 But who may abide the day of his coming? and who shall stand when he appeareth? for he is like a refiner’s fire, and like fullers’ soap:

 

Malachi 3:18 Then shall ye return, and discern between the righteous and the wicked, between him that serveth God and him that serveth him not.

 

Psalm 1:1 Blessed is the man that walketh not in the counsel of the ungodly, nor standeth in the way of sinners, nor sitteth in the seat of the scornful…

4 The ungodly are not so: but are like the chaff which the wind driveth away.

5 Therefore the ungodly shall not stand in the judgment, nor sinners in the congregation of the righteous.

 

As much as possible, it is important to decouple from Babylon, from the woke system, in terms of business partnerships, shopping choices, and every way possible.

Exodus 23:32 Thou shalt make no covenant with them, nor with their gods.

33 They shall not dwell in thy land, lest they make thee sin against me: for if thou serve their gods, it will surely be a snare unto thee.

 

Granted, it is difficult to do since Babylon has invaded so much of the marketplace.  But, as God raises up his people in all areas of life … entertainment, music, commerce, banking, industry, education, health care and all other venues of life, there will be choices.  And as Babylon and wokeness is driven out, the kingdom of heaven and God’s people can rise to take their place in society.

Musicians, craftsment, education (light of a candle), marriage, merchants … all of these things will no longer exist in Babylon, but they will still exist in the kingdom of heaven.

Revelation 18:22 And the voice of harpers, and musicians, and of pipers, and trumpeters, shall be heard no more at all in thee; and no craftsman, of whatsoever craft he be, shall be found any more in thee; and the sound of a millstone shall be heard no more at all in thee;

23 And the light of a candle shall shine no more at all in thee; and the voice of the bridegroom and of the bride shall be heard no more at all in thee: for thy merchants were the great men of the earth; for by thy sorceries were all nations deceived.

 

Matthew 13:33 Another parable spake he unto them; The kingdom of heaven is like unto leaven, which a woman took, and hid in three measures of meal, till the whole was leavened.

 

Daniel 2:44 And in the days of these kings shall the God of heaven set up a kingdom, which shall never be destroyed: and the kingdom shall not be left to other people, but it shall break in pieces and consume all these kingdoms, and it shall stand for ever.

 

One of the things to consider is investments. Are those investments in corporations and entities that are building society or destroying the very foundations of western civilization?

James 2:6 6 But ye have despised the poor. Do not rich men oppress you, and draw you before the judgment seats?

 

Recognizing that this can be a challenge, because of the largess of Babylon, the goal is to extract from those things committed to wokeness. It is called “walking the talk.” It does no good to complain, and then give money to, partner with, purchase from, and aid those you are complaining about.

It requires a fundamental shift in societal thinking. Life is not “que sera, sera” “what will be, will be” “I guess it is the will of God.” Maybe it’s simply because there is no entrepreneur, craftsman, musician, teacher, writer, politician that is better than the current choice.  And why is that?

It is a process of societal change.

Exodus 23:29 I will not drive them out from before thee in one year; lest the land become desolate, and the beast of the field multiply against thee.

30 By little and little I will drive them out from before thee, until thou be increased, and inherit the land.

 

But where does the Lord dwell?  The Lord dwells within the midst of his people.  The Lord dwells in the hearts of those who believe in him.  The Lord dwells within the body of Christ.  Therefore, God’s people will be an intricate part, as they are led by the Spirit of the Living God, of driving out the forces of Babylon from the midst of society.

The danger of remaining connected to those who are committed to and serve Babylon, is that as God throws them down, things connected to them will crash as well.  This can be stocks.  This can be strikes that disrupt business.  This can be many things.

Again, recognizing that this is easier to say than accomplish, because of the immensity of the problem. there has to be a starting point somewhere.

Exodus 23:29 I will not drive them out from before thee in one year; lest the land become desolate, and the beast of the field multiply against thee.

30 By little and little I will drive them out from before thee, until thou be increased, and inherit the land.

 

The Gettysburg Address

Four score and seven years ago our fathers brought forth on this continent, a new nation, conceived in Liberty, and dedicated to the proposition that all men are created equal.

Now we are engaged in a great civil war, testing whether that nation, or any nation so conceived and so dedicated, can long endure. We are met on a great battle-field of that war. We have come to dedicate a portion of that field, as a final resting place for those who here gave their lives that that nation might live. It is altogether fitting and proper that we should do this.

But, in a larger sense, we can not dedicate — we can not consecrate — we can not hallow — this ground. The brave men, living and dead, who struggled here, have consecrated it, far above our poor power to add or detract. The world will little note, nor long remember what we say here, but it can never forget what they did here. It is for us the living, rather, to be dedicated here to the unfinished work which they who fought here have thus far so nobly advanced. It is rather for us to be here dedicated to the great task remaining before us — that from these honored dead we take increased devotion to that cause for which they gave the last full measure of devotion — that we here highly resolve that these dead shall not have died in vain — that this nation, under God, shall have a new birth of freedom — and that government of the people, by the people, for the people, shall not perish from the earth.

Abraham Lincoln
November 19, 1863
