The Break-Through of Babylon

“For Jerusalem stumbled, and Judah is fallen, because their tongue and their doings are against the LORD, to provoke the eyes of His glory. The look on their countenance witnesses against them, and they declare their sin as Sodom; they do not hide it.” Isaiah 4:8-9

“My Well-beloved has a vineyard on a very fruitful hill. He dug it up and cleared out its stones, and planted it with the choicest vine. He built a tower in its midst, and also made a winepress in it; so He expected it to bring forth good grapes, but it brought forth wild grapes… What more could have been done to My vineyard that I have not done to it? Why then, when I expected it to bring forth good grapes, did it bring forth wild grapes? And now, please let Me tell you what I will do to my vineyard: I will take away its hedge, and it shall be burned; and break down its wall, and it shall be trampled down… But they do not regard the work of the LORD, nor consider the operation of His hands. Therefore My people have gone into captivity, because they have no knowledge; their honorable men are famished, and their multitude dried up with thirst. Woe to those who call evil good, and good evil; who put darkness for light, and light for darkness.” Isaiah 5

It happened. The people continued to make their own rules; the line between right and wrong went from blurry to upside down. The religious system became merely another catalyst for control: mankind is supreme. “Yes- we will continue with worship because that is what we do, and when we do what we are expected to do, we gain worship. And the details? Obedience? That is for us to decide. We run the show here.”

It happened, just as the Lord said it would. The once prosperous, rebellious Israel was taken down. On the ninth day of the fourth month, the walls of Jerusalem were broken through and Babylon came marching in. This isn’t just a story here. Imagine the sights and sounds. Terror. Confusion. “How did this happen? Our city was so secure!” For a year and a half prior to the breakthrough Babylon sat patiently waiting, buying its time until Israel was too weak to go on. Inside the walls, the people slowly withered away. The lying priests, the greedy judges, the young people who were once drunk and filled with pride, all of them sat together surrounded. Starving.

And then it finally happened: break-through.

“By the fourth month, on the ninth day of the month, the famine had become so severe in the city that there was no food for the people of the land. Then the city wall was broken through..” Jeremiah 52

Shortly after that, captives were taken away and the city was burned to the ground.

Did they recognize the judgment of God? I bet many did. I bet many did not. Those who hear His voice hear it; those who do not remain stiff-necked and formulate a great number of reasons as to why things are happening the way they are.

Judgment is a big taboo word these days. “Grace and judgment simply cannot coexist. The Father brought judgment; the Son brings grace and love.”

This thought process poses a problem with the concept of the God-head, three in one.

Is the Father God? Or is Jesus God? Did God the Father retire from His position on the throne? Do you serve one God or two? Or three, counting the Holy Spirit?

Did Jesus (Yeshua) exist before the foundation of the world? Was He there when God said, “Let Us make man in Our own image?” Is He the God who always was and always will be?

Yes. A thousand times yes.

Abba: Creator, Deliverer, Sustainer, Judge, Giver of the Word, Holy Righteous King, full of love, grace and truth.

Jesus: Yeshua, Salvation, the Word made flesh, Deliverer, Holy Righteous King, Judge, full of love, grace and truth.

Holy Spirit: the very Spirit of God the Father and His Son Jesus, sent to help us.

All in One. From the beginning of time to the end and everything in between; from Sodom and Gomorrah to the deliverance out of Egypt; from the giving of the Torah to the captivity in Babylon and the amazing redemption at the cross, to today and all of the tomorrows to come. We serve One God. One God who does not change.

Let’s read the words of Jesus, shortly before He was taken away.

“I do not pray for these alone, but also for those who will believe in me through their word; that they all may be one, as You, Father, are in Me, and I in You; that they also may be one in Us, that the world may believe that You sent Me. And the glory which You gave Me I have given them, that they may be one just as We are one: I in them, and You in Me; that they may be made perfect in one, and that the world may know that You have sent Me, and have loved them as You have loved Me.” John 17:20-23

Jesus is talking with His Father here. Do you know His Father? If not, read the Bible- front to back, back to front, again and again and again. Turn off any distractions and read His Word. If you really know Jesus, you should know His Father as well. As Jesus stated, they are One. The Father is in Jesus. Jesus is in the Father.

Here Jesus says that He wants the world to know that the Father loves them, and that it is the Father who sent Him. Remember, this is the same Father who commanded people not to murder, lie or commit adultery. This is the same Father who commanded a man not to lie with a  male as with a woman (Leviticus 18:22). This is the Father, full of love, teaching His people how to live (and what is sin) and sending His Son to redeem them from their sins. This is the Father who took away His hedge of protection from around Jerusalem and allowed them to go into captivity because “their tongues and their doings” were against the LORD. They had no knowledge; they called what was evil “good” and they called what was good “evil.” Even in His judgments, He is full of grace. I correct my children because I love them. Certainly He is no different with His children, even today.

On June 26, 2015, we as a nation positioned ourselves for judgment.

In an unprecedented way, we have spoken loud and proud against the Lord.

I know people will scoff at this concept. That is ok with me; I do not write to convince anyone of anything.

I think we as a people have been slowly starving for some time now. Hungry and thirsty, our bones have become brittle and dry. Too busy to eat, we are lacking bread and water. Too full of ourselves, our hunger has left.

Babylon has surrounded her target. For years, decades, she’s been there. A familiar face, she smiles and boasts of love and freedom. Freedom to be, freedom to rule. “Do as thou wilt” is her seductive wild card.

God… a controversial topic now. Push Him out! But our pennies, our old copper pennies that have been passed from pocket to pocket for centuries still bear the mark of our beginnings.

“In God we trust.” It’s embarrassing isn’t it? With our porn production and consumption, our blasphemous songs and movies, our right to murder, our lust for money, and now our gay pride. “In God we trust.” We blaspheme His holy Name.

As a collective whole, please know that our nation does not trust the God of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob. We do not submit to Yeshua or His Father. We are rebellious and think nothing of it. We trust ourselves, our supreme selves, and the smooth sounding rhetoric of those around us. {But take heart- there are many, many, within this nation and around the world who place their trust and hope in God. Let’s be one, as Yeshua and God the Father are One.}

“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… 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.’ … and she will be utterly burned with fire, for strong is the Lord God who judges her.’” Revelation 18 (prophesying about Babylon the Great)

For the Believers everywhere, hear the Word: “Come out of her {Babylon}, my people, lest you share in her sins…”

Because of the famine in the land, Babylon broke through the walls. It was the ninth day of the fourth month on the Hebrew calendar.

Because of the spiritual famine in the land, the rebellion of Babylon broke through the walls of the Whitehouse. It was on June 26, 2015, the ninth day of the fourth month on the Hebrew calendar.

Judgment is coming. Please recognize it when you see it.

Grace is freely given to anyone who would like to take hold of it. I don’t care what sort of colorful past you may have (from lying to sexual orientation), you are one heartbeat, one decision away from receiving the holy blood of redemption. Our sin paid in full, by a God who loves with an unfathomable love. Replace pride with humility; there you will find Him. Replace a stiff neck with bended knees, and you will hear His voice, full of love, grace and truth to help you overcome the struggle with the flesh.

“Neither do I condemn you. Now go and sin no more.”- Yeshua

Grace does not exist if sin does not exist.

“Greater love has no one than this, than to lay down one’s life for his friends.” John 15:13

This is the greatest love. This is the love that happened- why? To reconcile us to Himself. To cover, forgive, the sin that separated us.

And now we like to call it love to exalt the sin? We march around in parades, dripping with pride: Do as thou wilt.  Can’t you see her, that Lady Babylon, leading this parade? She’s marching towards death.

Get out. Get out and get under His wings. Anyone and everyone is welcome, but know that not everyone is there. Don’t be fooled by those who reject Him. Be careful, lest you find yourself humming along to their song. “..because their tongue and their doings are against the LORD, to provoke the eyes of His glory. The look on their countenance witnesses against them, and they declare their sin as Sodom; they do not hide it.”

Do you think that is still possible- to have a tongue and doings that are against the Lord? What a frightening place to be. Forget lining up with the culture! As it lines up against the Lord, I can assure you, there isn’t any strength in numbers. Humble yourself. Leave pride- any and all pride- and humble yourself before His Word.

In love, for the sake of Truth,

Aubrie
