The corrupted religious spirit of Babylon must be defeated in order to defeat the beast, and the beast like nature of carnal men and women. Then Jesus can be crowned as King of kings and Lord and lords within the hearts of people.
If you don’t get to the beast nature, and destroy it, all you’ll have after teaching them about Jesus is a religious minded sinner. One who places a cloak of so-called “Christianity” over their carnal lusts and desires so they can continue in an unfaithful claim of being married to Jesus while they fornicate with Satan’s temptations. You might think that is “strong language” to swallow for most of modern day religion – Yes, and that is exactly what the Revelation of Jesus Christ is about.
So Revelation lays out a battle plan, very similar to the one given to Joshua to defeat Jericho, the great walled city. In the Old Testament, Jericho stood in the way of the people of God obtaining the promised land. Today, spiritual Babylon is a great walled city that stands in the way of people getting “the victory over the beast, and over his image, and over his mark, and over the number of his name…” ~Revelation 15:2
And so Revelation lays out a battle plan against spiritual Babylon of:
- Seven Seals opened up by the Lamb of God
- Seven Trumpets sounded by trumpet angel/messengers
- Seven Vials of the Wrath of God poured out by angel/messengers
Once the battle plan is completed:
“there came a great voice out of the temple of heaven, from the throne, saying, It is done. And there were voices, and thunders, and lightnings; and there was a great earthquake, such as was not since men were upon the earth, so mighty an earthquake, and so great. And the great city was divided into three parts, and the cities of the nations fell: and great Babylon came in remembrance before God, to give unto her the cup of the wine of the fierceness of his wrath.” ~ Revelation 16:17-19
Are you “done”? Has the spiritual earthquake happened that frees you from the mark of the beastly carnal nature and the hypocrisy of being a so-called “sinning Christian”? Jesus has announced the end of your personal “self-life” kingdom. It is time for everyone to “cast their crown before the throne of God” and honor Jesus Christ with all their heart, soul, mind and strength!
