With What I Have Been Given

Hi M____,
You ask:

I think that you know that:

Rom 11:8  ( … God hath given them the spirit of slumber, eyes that they should not see, and ears that they should not hear;) unto this day.

Israel is, was and will be backslidden. Christianity, “the Israel of God,” claiming the name of God, has turned her back on God and has become an international harlot, which has deceived the whole world. I know, because it wasn’t that long ago that I, too had my eyes opened to God’s Word. When that happened I kept seeing scriptures which I had never seen before though I had read them many times. I’m still doing that all the time. Here is but the latest such scripture I have never before noticed until about three weeks ago:

Psa 139:16  Thine eyes did see mine unformed substance; And in thy book they were all written, Even the days that were ordained for me, When as yet there was none of them . (ASV)

Spiritual vision is a gift from God:

Mat 16:17  And Jesus answered and said unto him, Blessed art thou, Simon Bar- jonah: for flesh and blood hath not revealed it unto thee, but my Father who is in heaven.

So don’t be shocked at the blindness that is Babylon. You just be Christ’s witness to His Truth when you are given the opportunity. That is what “You are witnesses” means”

Luk 24:48  And ye are witnesses of these things.

You and I deny Christ when we put church doctrine ahead of God’s Word, and we witness Christ’s crucifixion every time we hear a false doctrine.
Don’t cast your pearls before swine or they will indeed rend you. Paul spent time in the wilderness of Arabia, after he was called out of spiritual Egypt and Babylon. You need to do the same. Get all your ducks in a row before you try to show others what you have been shown. You need Christ and the spirit of God within you before you attempt to do battle with the forces of Babylon.
If you want Christ within you, then the immediate answer to your question is, you need to get to know Christ by getting to know His word intimately.  When you do, rest assured “all they in Asia will forsake you.” They will hate you and be unable to speak peaceably to you:

Gen 37:4  And when his brethren saw that their father loved him more than all his brethren, they hated him, and could not speak peaceably unto him.

2Ti 1:15  This thou knowest, that all they which are in Asia be turned away from me; of whom are Phygellus and Hermogenes.

No one will stand with you and you will be “dead in the streets” of Babylon.

2Ti 4:10  For Demas hath forsaken me, having loved this present world, and is departed unto Thessalonica; Crescens to Galatia, Titus unto Dalmatia.
2Ti 4:11  Only Luke is with me. Take Mark, and bring him with thee: for he is profitable to me for the ministry.
2Ti 4:12  And Tychicus have I sent to Ephesus.
2Ti 4:13  The cloke that I left at Troas with Carpus, when thou comest, bring [ with thee], and the books, [ but] especially the parchments.
2Ti 4:14  Alexander the coppersmith did me much evil: the Lord reward him according to his works:
2Ti 4:15  Of whom be thou ware also; for he hath greatly withstood our words.
2Ti 4:16  At my first answer no man stood with me, but all [ men] forsook me: I pray God that it may not be laid to their charge.
2Ti 4:17  Notwithstanding the Lord stood with me, and strengthened me; that by me the preaching might be fully known, and that all the Gentiles might hear: and I was delivered out of the mouth of the lion.

Rev 11:8  And their dead bodies shall lie in the street of the great city, which spiritually is called Sodom and Egypt, where also our Lord was crucified.

“Babylon the great the mother of harlots” is “spiritual Sodom and Egypt.”
You ask what you are to do with the understanding you have been given?
The answer is that you must be true to what you have come to see. But that doesn’t mean that you should expect to convert your church. That is not going to happen. Just get into your Bible and stay there. The holy spirit will direct you and give you the words you need if Christ and His word are within you. Here is what you need to do:

2Ti 2:15  Study to shew thyself approved unto God, a workman that needeth not to be ashamed, rightly dividing the word of truth.

Yours is the second letter in two days telling me that what you have been given is “scary.”  But that is what faith is all about. It is about stepping out without knowing exactly what the next step will be. God did not tell Abraham everything up front, and the same is true for us. We know that the outcome will be glorious, but we have no clue what the process holds for us. But God gives us the strength we need as we confront enemies that make us look like grasshoppers. He parts the Red Sea, He feeds us and waters us with His Word, and in due time are again baptized in the Jordan, then we are circumcised and are ready to do battle with the giants that are in the land.
And that is where your attention needs to be just now. You are “the land,” and you are full of giants that are yet to be overcome and subdued. Concentrate on “the land.” When “the land” is clean then the True Solomon will rule and give you peace.
That is the need at this time. There are many battles ahead that you need to be preparing for. My prayers are with you and even better, so is Christ:

Mat 28:20  Teaching them to observe all things whatsoever I have commanded you: and, lo, I am with you alway, even unto the end of the world. Amen.

Heb 13:5  [ Let your] conversation [ be] without covetousness; [ and be] content with such things as ye have: for he hath said, I will never leave thee, nor forsake thee.

Your brother in Christ,
