Prophetic Forecast

There is a separation happening now, unlike any other time in history. God is very serious. His Spirit will not always strive with man.

We all know about the Weather Forecasts, don’t we?

These forecasts are available for us to be aware to plan weeks in advance, days, or even hours and minutes like the warning sounds that ring out when a tornado touches down.

The Prophetic Office also forecasts many things to warn and to be aware, so that we prepare for surely The LORD will do nothing until He first shows His Servants, the Prophets.

There is a separation happening now, unlike any other time in history. God is very serious. His Spirit will not always strive with man.

I am so desperate; desperate to preach, teach, prophesy or whatever else The LORD wants me to do, because of what I have seen and know.

It is extremely and vitally important now that The Church falls on her knees and face, and repents and turns away from all her adulterous affairs, having passion and love for this world and this present darkness!

They love the creature more than The Creator, and dare shake their fist at God, and say they love Him and say they are okay with God?

“For the wrath God is revealed from heaven against all ungodliness and unrighteousness of men, and unrighteousness, because what may be known of God is manifest in them for God has shown it to them. For since the creation of the world his invisible attributes are clearly seen, being understood by the things that are made, even his eternal power and Godhead so that they are without excuse, because although they knew God, they did not glorify him as God nor were they thankful, but became futile in their thoughts and their foolish heart was darkened they profess to be wise but they became fools and change the glory of the incorruptible God into an image made like a corruptible man and birds and four-footed animals and creeping things. Therefore, God also gave them up to uncleanness, in the lust of their hearts, to dishonor their bodies among themselves, who exchanged the truth of God for the lie and worshiped and served the creature rather than the creator who is blessed forever amen. For this reason, God gave them over to vile passions. For even their women exchanged the natural use for what is against nature. Likewise, also the men, leaving the natural use of the woman, burned in their lust for one another, men with men committing what is shameful, and receiving in themselves the penalty of their error which was due. And even as they did not like to retain God in their knowledge, God gave them over to a debased (reprobate) mind, to do those things which are not fitting: being filled with all unrighteousness, sexual immorality, wickedness, covetousness, maliciousness, full of envy, murder, strife, deceit, evil mindedness; they are whisperers, backbiters, haters of God, violent, proud, boasters, inventors of evil things, disobedient to parents, undiscerning, untrustworthy, unloving, unforgiving, unmerciful; who knowing the righteous judgment of God, that those who practice such things are deserving of death not only do the same but of those who practice them.” Romans 1:18-32 NKJV.

God opened my eyes this week and I was stunned and shaken, and extremely frightened!

Something felt finished, something was final inside me, but I don’t understand it fully. But what I do know is, I cannot turn around any more and look and worry about everybody!

I can’t pull them in! I know a set time has come. and I believe it’s set in stone!

I felt a death, like something finally was conquered, and I understood that when we die to the flesh, we rise with more newness of a supernatural life!

I know something major has happened inside of me, I can feel the change and that I know, that I know, that I know, that I’ve got to go, go, go!

Even though I was changed, my eyes were opened to some things, and it was extremely frightening!

Not because of my spiritual condition, but because of the other people’s faces that I saw, those whom I know and love. So many people are not ready, even in The Church! I understood His Timing, and His plan.

In the Vision, I could see those who are not saved, and not ready to meet The LORD.

I have such a desperation, and I’ve got to tell somebody, because for so many, this is the Free-will Final Curtain Call, and “choose this day whom you serve,” now!

So many are not ready — that’s what frightened me — because in an instant I saw numerous amounts of people in front of my face who were not ready for God, and many of them go to Church, and some have made a confession to God at one point in their lives, and they were baptized, and they think that’s all — and they are self-deluded!

We have got to become militant in our prayers. We cannot fight this battle in the flesh, its got to be fought in The Spirit, and for many again I say, this is The Final Curtain Call, and the final choice before the door is shut.

Many will be branded on their forehead and a hand, for heaven or hell, and that’s their decision, that’s their choice!

God wants us to work while it is yet day.

I posted an old Dream and God opened my eyes further, and revealed that a lot of it was made manifest this week, and I saw some of the Dream fulfilled.

We are in the season of Harvest Time, and a great separation is taking place now in The Spirit Realm. Not only a separation of the wheat from the chaff personally, but there is a greater separation, because it is Harvest Time!

For many are experiencing a greater separation from the cares of this life and the things of this world that corrupt our faith. There is truly a greater separation of Fire, for the wheat and the tares.

A lot of people don’t know this. but when the wheat is gathered and taken to a threshing floor, it is beaten and tossed up in the air, crushed and flipped, and that process continues until every grain of wheat is on the bottom of the threshing floor. The wheat grain is heavy, so it sinks to the bottom of the threshing floor.

What happens after it’s tossed up in the air, is the chaff and the outer hull — everything that protected the wheat grain and helped it to grow — is now burned away, and what is left, is the pure grain.

This process of burning up the chaff, represents the process we go through as Christians, as we go through The Fire of Refinement and Testing, so that we become pure, and become wheat that’s ready to be crushed to become flour, to make bread to feed The Nations.

There is another Harvest of Wheat the Bible teaches. In the last days, there will be a separating of the wheat and the tares.

In this Final Harvest, Jesus told them to remove the false wheat from the true wheat, and at the end of the age, the Angels will separate them and the false wheat — or the false believers in Christ — will be burned up, and the true believers of the true wheat will be gathered to his barn eternally.

“Let both grow together until the harvest, and at the time of harvest I will say to the reapers, First gather together the tares and bind them in bundles to burn them but gather the wheat into my barn.Matthew 13:30 NKJV.

It is imperative now that we must know when to let go of sin filled relationships, people and situations, when they do not receive from us, for some of us have tried everything we can think of to reach our families and neighbors, and even become like them, to get down to their level to reach them where they are.

But when in Rome, do as the Romans do? Do we really?

Scripture is clear; we become all things to all men, that we might win them, but we do not partake of their sins!

For example, if the only way they will talk with you is if you drink alcohol with them, do not partake in man’s sin.

When you minister to lesbians, you don’t partake in that sin and environment — you control your environment, and when people come into your presence, you have the goods within you, and no longer compromise and lower your standards of right and wrong.

Be not intimidated by looks, their words, the rejections, or their bitter hatred of you. Forgive them and release them, and let them go in The Name of Jesus!

Did you know that when a believer in Christ is following The LORD, and comes into a group people — or even one — and they are in the midst of the sin of gossip and slander or whatever sin it may be, we are accountable before God, as believers, to confront our brother or sister and confront them about the sin?

If you do not confront them about the sin, you are a partaker of that sin!

“and to the Jews I became as a Jew, that I might win Jews; to those who are under the law, as under the law, that I might win those who are under the law; to those who are without law, as without law (not being without law toward God, but under law toward Christ), that I might win those who are without law; to the weak I became as weak, that I might win the weak. I have become all things to all men, that I might by all means save some.” 1 Corinthians 9:20-22 NKJV.

“Then Jesus sent the multitude away and went into the house. And His disciples came to Him, saying, “Explain to us the parable of the tares of the field. He answered and said to them: “He who sows the good seed is the Son of Man. The field is the world, the good seeds are the sons of the kingdom, but the tares are the sons of the wicked one. The enemy who sowed them is the devil, the harvest is the end of the age, and the reapers are the angels. Therefore, as the tares are gathered and burned in the fire, so it will be at the end of this age. The Son of Man will send out His angels, and they will gather out of His kingdom all things that offend, and those who practice lawlessness, and will cast them into the furnace of fire. There will be wailing and gnashing of teeth. Then the righteous will shine forth as the sun in the kingdom of their Father. He who has ears to hear, let him hear!” Matthew 13:36-43 NKJV.

This Prophetic Forecast shows that there is evidence now, that the separation is taking place and is a God ordained time.

It is a most serious time to separate and remove yourselves from the things of this world or people, or whatever draws you away from your devotion to Christ.

Important!

The longer you remain double-minded and think you can live with one foot in the world and one in the kingdom, you are deceiving yourself, and you will be greatly shocked, and you will not enter The Kingdom of God.

There are no fence straddlers anymore. There is no space to stand in both worlds anymore. God has increased, and we must decrease.

If you have tried to reach others in their spiritual environment and see no harm in partaking of their sin, and the pull of the world is trying to snag you, the more dangerous it is, and the more you jeopardize your rank and authority in The Kingdom of God.

Thinking you can actually have a foot in both worlds is deception. You are deceived if you think this way.

It is time for The True Church of The Living God to rise and shine, for your Light has come and The Glory of The LORD has risen upon thee.

“Come out from among them and be separate,” says The LORD.

As believers, we must realize when we play ‘pat-a-cake‘ with sinners, the longer we stay around those we try to win — who hate us — and we continue to remain there, when all we do is cast our pearls before swine, we must understand that God’s Glory cloud has moved, and we must move with Him.

The longer you stay with compromise, the more you jeopardize your rank and authority. Remember Lot’s wife!

Jeopardy : Danger of loss, harm, or failure. Similar: danger, peril, at risk, endangerment, imperilment, riskiness, precariousness, uncertainty, instability, vulnerability, threat. (Oxford Dictionary)

Prophesy — Listen and Heed!

To The Church of The First Born, and to just men who have been made perfect, what I speak today, I give no apology.

To The Church of The First Born, and to just men who have been made perfect, what I speak today, I give no apology.

I will not soak it in milk, nor will I speak as one that is drunk with strong drink, but I speak with clarity of mind in the heat of my spirit.

For the Vision I see, is that of Dunamis explosive power, the power of The Living God, Who is the same yesterday, today and forever more!

There will be no more apology ever, for speaking my mind, and for confronting sin in The Church, for it is past time that sin should have been judged in The Church!

It is the fault of The Church for the condition of America and The Nations!

You blame the politicians and Hollywood for the decay in the nations, but I say no for the fault falls on The Church!

I do not fear or care about men’s faces, nor do I consider their words or deeds!

It’s high time that the true Church of The Living God stands with bold and great confidence and assurance, having no compromise to the full counsel of The Word of God — which is the Holy Bible!

“I AM The Alpha and The Omega, the Beginning and End, and from The Book of Genesis to Revelation, My Word is My Will and final authority.

Every purpose, need, every answer, every Godly-written Law and practiced in Nations and every condition and meaning is found in the pages of My Book, which I inspired men long ago of like heart and mind to write as My Hand rested heavily upon them.

Once again, I AM raising up a breed of men who will not be conformed to the chaotic and devilish rules of the land!

Evil is rampant, and what is right is wrong, and what is wrong is right. But I have found those who have been formed into My Nature and Character, and to these, I will release my mysteries and secrets that were reserved for such a time, for I have found them faithful who have found My Chambers,” says The LORD!

“I AM raising up a revolt! I Myself shall visit those who call themselves “The Church” and I will knock on the door to see if they let Me in.

It shall be on that day when I knock, and they refuse, that those doors shall be locked and chained,” says The LORD!

“Even as I said to Jerusalem that day, oh how I long to gather you as a hen does her chicks but you were not willing therefore with tears and great anguish, I shall call you desolate…

With every judgment that I executed in Egypt, one by one, made Pharaoh’s heart grow harder.

Once again, I will demonstrate My Judgments on the land, and you shall know that I AM LORD!

You think such days are far off, and you will hear peace and safety, but sudden destruction shall come!

Yes, it is not My Will that anyone perish, but when one willingly chooses rejection of My Covenant and rebels against Me — for I and My Word are One — how can one live?

How can you walk with someone who hates you, or how can two walk together unless they are in agreement?

Yes, you weep for those you love, but by their actions they prove they don’t love you.

Think from My Cross. Think well! You have no idea how I have wept for humanity! I give everyone a choice of free will and I will not violate their freedom of choice and make them love Me.

You cannot make anyone love you, and neither can I,” says The LORD.

“And those who love Me prove their love by obedience to My Covenant and The Holy Scriptures.

Open your eyes! For now, you will finally know your true family, for you will see and know them by their fruits!

I AM calling you to a revolt!! There has been too much silence for the sake of offending!

Christians be not fearful to step on toes, for you carry within you the power to bring conviction — if you will only believe! You carry within you the resurrection power that I purchased for you.

Why have you laid down My Weaponry, My Word and My Gifts?

Do not bend over or shrink back with insecurity and fear! No more cowering away from groups, or even families that enjoy despising you, as they flaunt their sin in your face!

Do not succumb to their faces, for these are demons that intimidate you to silence for the sake of peace!

For when you walk in a place, take dominion and take back the atmosphere, and take back the ground and everything stolen! I have given you My Authority to take it back!

Heaven is real and hell is real and hot, and you can’t get out! Hell was created for Satan and his fallen angels, but the devil is out to take as many people as possible who were made in My Image to hell with him for he hates those who love Me,” says The LORD!

“It is time to warn and prepare those who have ears to hear what The Spirit of The Living God is saying to The Church!

No clichés, no more clicks and clubs or social gatherings those so-called Churches. For if they truly had heard Me, they would have repented at My Altar!

But now those Altars are all full of dead men’s bones, who love man’s admiration and position; idols of possessions and having eyes full of adultery and perversions.

They think they are right in their own eyes, but the idols within their walls are not hidden from Me, for this is where they bring their sacrifices and offerings to where their heart truly lives.

I see the beds of iniquity, the whoremongers, the homosexuality, and perversions of all types that are practiced in those who say they abide in My House,” says The LORD.

“I see your practices upon the beds of iniquity for underneath are the very flames of hell, and you will not escape the flames if you do not repent and turn away from your sin,” says The LORD!

“I see your shiny rings with diamonds your multiple cars and boats. I see your charismatic ways of sexually dancing and wearing polluted apparel and appearing as a shiny spectacle as you are the so-called ministers of God! Do you think that you can represent My Presence?

You dare stand in My Presence as My Representative, while practicing the sin I so clearly revealed in My Word,” says The LORD!

“Judgment is coming and I shall open the eyes of those who are trodden down, and they shall suddenly see their error and condition and what environment they are in, and they shall run, run, run from you!

My Word is forever settled in Heaven and on earth, and I have not changed. I AM the same yesterday, today and forever more!

For My Word became flesh and dwelt among you. I lived and died for you and purchased your price. But you did not adhere to My Agreement, for when I call, I convict, and I pinpoint every sin, but you think if you repent and say you’re sorry that it is enough. What I say is enough, is enough!

Deluded and false ministers and false prophets have a power, but it is not of Me.” says The LORD!

“New Age has invaded and captivated many who were once in tune with Me. But now the tune is a frequency of hell, mimicking what religious and social club’s atmosphere say is God, and practice beliefs and encounters that are nowhere found in My Word!

My Word is the final authority of what is right and wrong, and no other book or religion can measure up to it.

Faith is NOT a feeling or experience! Now, Faith is the substance of things hoped for the evidence of things not seen! Feelings are deceptive — but Faith is and will always be, solid like a rock!

I AM Warning you NOW to repent and turn away from your sin, and be one with Me For let not sin shall have dominion over you any longer!

You have no more time to wait, because you are already living in hell’s plan, and when you die, you abide without God, where Satan is and the flames never end,” says The LORD God Almighty!

“But whatever things were gain to me, these I have esteemed loss because of Christ. But indeed, therefore, I also count all things to be loss because of the excelling knowledge of Christ Jesus my Lord, because of whom I have lost all things, and esteem them rubbish, that I may gain Christ and be found in Him, not having my own righteousness which is of the Law, but that which is through faith from Christ, the righteousness of God on the basis of faith, to know Him and the power of His resurrection and the fellowship of His sufferings, being conformed to His death, if, by any means, I may attain to the resurrection from out of dead.” Philippians 3:7-11 KJV (READ the whole chapter)

Birds of the Air

You dear one, are of more worth and value to God than the tiniest sparrow that falls.

Yesterday a baby bird fell into a trash can of water, and I saw it and gently picked it up and held it in my hand.

The baby bird was so little and shivered with cold and I gently cupped the bird in my hand and began to blow my breath into my hand, and soon the baby bird stopped shivering and was warm.

I checked her feathers and knew they were still wet and there was only a small area of fuzz left on the baby’s head, and I thought this must have been the baby bird’s first flight.

I continued to blow my breath into my hand and the baby put her head out of my hand and peeped. Soon I took the bird outside on my deck and as I sat in silence and the feathers continued to dry, I began to hear all the sounds of birds of the air and the baby continued to peep without reacting to any sound.

I sat the baby bird on my finger, and she fluffed herself up and she continued to make her sounds. Then suddenly a certain sound came, and the baby bird looked all around, and the mother bird flew over and the baby kept looking in the direction of that sound.

The baby bird preening its feathers and fluffed up again and took to flight and flew to a tree being reunited in nature’s breeze.

“Are not two sparrows sold for a copper coin? And not one of them falls to the ground apart from your Father’s will. But the very hairs of your head are all numbered. Do not fear; therefore, you are of more value than many sparrows.” Matthew 10:29-31 NKJV.

You dear one, are of more worth and value to God than the tiniest sparrow that falls.

Beloved of God, He sees every minute detail of your life! How can you possibly know the number of hairs on your head or the number of cells in your body?

The LORD our Father knows it all and that is how intimately our Father in Heaven knows every detail of our life.

Even when we fall into insurmountable odds and circumstances and there is absolutely no way possible, we can recover, our loving Father God cares for us so much and ever rescues us while keeping us in the palm of His hand where nothing can pluck us out. And all the while giving us life and breath continuing to restore us as we are hidden in The Palm of His Hand.

No eye can see, or ear can hear the things that God has prepared for you! But He shall reveal it by His Spirit, for The Spirit searches all things, yes, the deep things of God.

God restores us, renews, and revives us in so many ways. For destiny calls in the wings of the winds for you were created to fly and your destiny awaits, and you have been created for such a time as this.

Be not afraid for our loving Father who sits on The Throne, knows it all, and there is no where He is not.

There is a time to be hidden, then a time to be revealed and He knows exactly what all that means.

If this little message has spoken to your heart today, take time, not make time, to be still, quiet, and listen and you will begin again to hear anew and know He is God.

He will rescue and He will save for He Delights in you beloved!

“Even the birds of the air know the signs of the times, but My People do not,” says The LORD. “Learn, I say, learn of the birds.”

Enough Is Enough!

While seeking The LORD He said, “Daughter of Zion, declare all that I say; “Enough if enough!” I have sent My impending Warning Judgements!”

While seeking The LORD He said, “Daughter of Zion, declare all that I say; “Enough if enough!” I have sent My impending Warning Judgements!”

It is hard to describe my experience… the absolute heat, sensing wrath, and his heavy presence on my body like I cannot contain it.

It can be no clearer to say that His Spirit is done striving with man about this Judgment, and no matter how much Intercession is made, none can stop His Purpose in all of this.

Be advised, not to stand in the way of His method of discipline, for you might be found fighting against God. There is no more care or concern what man says, He has brought me, close to Himself.

God is in control regardless of what happens. God uses many various ways of Discipline and Judgments to make His point.

The LORD said, “You MUST prepare My People for the great darkness that comes to that city and will forever change the world, for in one hour, My Judgment shall come.

This is an hour of great shaking, darkness, and dead silence that shall shock the city, nation, and the world. The fallout on that city and the atmosphere will be silent, dark, and gloom.

It will come to pass that the nations that were made rich by her, shall weep and wail for the judgments that I decreed for her!

They shall see the smoke of her burning in one hour worldwide, for she is made absolutely desolate in dust and ash of this nuclear event and the poison that will be experienced will prevail and be seen all over the world.

Fear The LORD and listen to His Prophets! Fear The LORD and live!

People think this Judgment is for another time, and not now! Many do not want to accept it, so they declare that first revival must come!”

I saw a Golden Calf grow up into a Golden Bull with horns! Then I heard, “Since you did not take the Bull by the horns and conquer it, it has conquered you and all those who loved the stock, and the idolatry shall be brought down to ashes.”

I heard, “The New York Stock Exchange, Wall Street Corporations.”

For as the Israelites danced and worshiped the golden calf and it was written for warnings for future generations that the worship of wealth is a vile act of apostasy and rejection of God.

For the Egyptian idol of the bull god of Apis is the modern idol of worship of wealth and the idol of the love of money which is the root of ALL evil.

I see the tree stock and roots of the red Apple, suddenly be consumed in an instant.

“All is dark, the city is left desolate, and the land is cursed and ruined, and all the gates are destroyed . Babylon the great is ruined, ruined as her heart, veins and structure that gave strength to the nation and the world is no more. She no longer exists for the commerce in the world, for she is ruined, greatly ruined!

Just as My anger is kindled against this city and nation, and I shall strike the heart and she shall shake, and the earth will shake for her veins convulse and the seize of her blood flow nationally and internationally.

My anger is kindled against the Church Leaders, who not only allowed this, but were partakers of this idolatry!

This will be a very serious time for The Church, for holding false doctrine, and false ministers will be plainly exposed for who they are and held responsible for these practices of the love of money and tolerating this sin of idolatry.

The stir of the water is stagnant and polluted! You have dammed up and polluted what was pure!

I shall push and the dam shall break and everything that depends on that source of pollution shall be flattened and My Purity and My Source of The River of Life shall come back to her banks and her flow of My Source of Provision and the Well Head shall once again be a Pulpit of Truth and Purity.

Though weary and weighed down, disaster and the ecological and economical will be going deeper in the desert with no clear path.

The collapse of many decades past will make the heart sick, but shall course a deeper path to The Lamb and into the dead dry valley in hopes of clarity in the remote.

For who shall know the mind of The LORD in those days? For in famine, many shall seek the true Word of The LORD. Polluted mixture meetings and groups will become a thing of historic past, and true and pure worship shall care for the poor and needy.

So called good and pious men accommodate sin and ease. You must beware of people who accommodate the gospel of ambition, prosperity, recognition, biggest crowds, biggest churches and the sin of patterning Church by success, business models and other worldly notions.

Comfort sermons ease the mind. We cannot have an accommodating gospel. We have a polluted gospel from polluted pulpits.

You must take an open stand on sin, because Love will not cover a multitude of sin and iniquity, unless a person totally repents of the sin and radically turns away from it.”

There is no compromise, no apology that can stand! Only true and total repentance then forgiveness can come by His Hand.

To prepare The Church for what is coming is imminent, The LORD said, “Prepare My People for what’s ahead. All the judgments so far have been like slaps on the hand and the Christians have adapted.”

The people adapted when the Twin Towers fell, and after each judgmental succession we have adapted. The Church does not want to believe these things were judgments.

We are to represent Christ to this world, and since The Church adapted, so has the Nation and the World. But now, God has said, “They do err in their hearts, so now We must bring serious judgment to the city and the Church who made them forget.”

God is going to cause sudden destruction . The olive tree will be shaken, and the idols will come down. After the destruction and shaking, true change will come to this nation and the church.

Revival will come in the midst of the calamity. The Church will rise in the midst of the dust and destruction of what is left.

In the Circus and cotton candy atmosphere of The Church, no one sees the need to get serious with God. But WATCH!

When these Judgments, upheavals, persecutions, trials, tribulations and chaos are here then the people will get serious and seek God, and seek out His True Prophets and Ministers.

Revival will come on the heels of great Judgments!

In the view of much dust, will be seen those leaning on the one they love, our LORD Jesus.

To the obedient believer in Jesus, The LORD does not want you to live in fear, beloveds.

We must develop the attitude that ,regardless of if we live or die, we are The LORD’s! Be ready to face death every day and say, “God is all I have and all that I need.”

And in all the magnitude of circumstances we face, we must remember, God has everything under control! It is an amazing time to be alive, to see what The LORD will do!

Amen? Amen!

“Look! The days are coming, declares The LORD God, when I will send a famine throughout the land not a famine of food or a thirst for water but rather a famine of hearing the words of The LORD.” Amos 8:11.

“After these things I saw another angel coming down from heaven, having great authority, and the earth was illuminated with his glory. And he cried mightily with a loud voice, saying, “Babylon the great is fallen, is fallen, and has become a dwelling place of demons, a prison for every foul spirit, and a cage for every unclean and hated bird! For all the nations have drunk of the wine of the wrath of her fornication, the kings of the earth have committed fornication with her, and the merchants of the earth have become rich through the abundance of her luxury. And I heard another voice from heaven saying, come out of her, my people, lest you share in her sins, and lest you receive of her plagues. For her sins have reached to heaven, and God has remembered her iniquities. Render to her just as she rendered to you and repay her double according to her works; in the cup which she has mixed, mix double for her. In the measure that she glorified herself and lived luxuriously, in the same measure give her torment and sorrow; for she says in her heart, ‘I sit as queen, and am no widow, and will not see sorrow. ’ Therefore, her plagues will come in one day — death and mourning and famine. And she will be utterly burned with fire, for strong is The LORD God who judges her. The kings of the earth who committed fornication and lived luxuriously with her will weep and lament for her, when they see the smoke of her burning, standing at a distance for fear of her torment, saying, ‘Alas, alas, that great city Babylon, that mighty city! For in one hour your judgment has come. ‘And the merchants of the earth will weep and mourn over her, for no one buys their merchandise anymore: merchandise of gold and silver, precious stones and pearls, fine linen and purple, silk and scarlet, every kind of citron wood, every kind of object of ivory, every kind of object of most precious wood, bronze, iron, and marble; and cinnamon and incense, fragrant oil and frankincense, wine and oil, fine flour and wheat, cattle and sheep, horses and chariots, and bodies and souls of men. The fruit that your soul longed for has gone from you, and all the things which are rich and splendid have gone from you, and you shall find them no more at all. The merchants of these things, who became rich by her, will stand at a distance for fear of her torment, weeping and wailing, and saying, ‘Alas, alas, that great city that was clothed in fine linen, purple, and scarlet, and adorned with gold and precious stones and pearls! For in one hour such great riches came to nothing.’ Every shipmaster, all who travel by ship, sailors, and as many as trade on the sea, stood at a distance and cried out when they saw the smoke of her burning, saying, ‘What is like this great city?’ They threw dust on their heads and cried out, weeping and wailing, and saying, ‘Alas, alas, that great city, in which all who had ships on the sea became rich by her wealth! For in one hour she is made desolate. Rejoice over her, O heaven, and you holy apostles and prophets, for God has avenged you on her!” Then a mighty angel took up a stone like a great millstone and threw it into the sea, saying, “Thus with violence the great city Babylon shall be thrown down, and shall not be found anymore. The sound of harpists, musicians, flutists, and trumpeters shall not be heard in you anymore. No craftsman of any craft shall be found in you anymore, and the sound of a millstone shall not be heard in you anymore. The light of a lamp shall not shine in you anymore, and the voice of bridegroom and bride shall not be heard in you anymore. For your merchants were the great men of the earth, for by your sorcery all the nations were deceived. And in her was found the blood of prophets and saints, and of all who were slain on the earth.” Revelation 18:1-24.
