Thought for the Day
Who or What is in Control?
It is a system that started at the beginning of Babylon and has enveloped the Earth; and is controlled by a small group of individuals aiming at World Control.
They have worldwide political power!
Revelation 17:15; “15And he saith unto me, The waters which thou sawest, where the whore sitteth, are peoples, and multitudes, and nations, and tongues.”
Revelation 17:2,15; “2With whom the kings of the earth have committed fornication, and the inhabitants of the earth have been made drunk with the wine of her fornication.”
Revelation 18:3; “3For all nations have drunk of the wine of the wrath of her fornication, and the kings of the earth have committed fornication with her, and the merchants of the earth are waxed rich through the abundance of her delicacies.”
They have an alliance with the Beast!
Revelation 17:3; “3So he carried me away in the spirit into the wilderness: and I saw a woman sit upon a scarlet coloured beast, full of names of blasphemy, having seven heads and ten horns.”
Revelation 17:7-8; “7And the angel said unto me, Wherefore didst thou marvel? I will tell thee the mystery of the woman, and of the beast that carrieth her, which hath the seven heads and ten horns. 8The beast that thou sawest was, and is not; and shall ascend out of the bottomless pit, and go into perdition: and they that dwell on the earth shall wonder, whose names were not written in the book of life from the foundation of the world, when they behold the beast that was, and is not, and yet is.”
They have great economic power!
Revelation 18:23; “23…. for thy merchants were the great men of the earth; for by thy sorceries were all nations deceived.”
They glorify themselves and live luxuriously!
Revelation 18:7; “7How much she hath glorified herself, and lived deliciously,…”
They are full of abominations and filthiness!
Revelation 17:4 – 5; “4And the woman was arrayed in purple and scarlet colour, and decked with gold and precious stones and pearls, having a golden cup in her hand full of abominations and filthiness of her fornication:…”
They are the persecutors of true believers!
Revelation 17:6; “6And I saw the woman drunken with the blood of the saints, and with the blood of the martyrs of Jesus:…”
They profit from the merchandise of all types of goods – and the souls of men!
Revelation 18:12 – 13; “12The merchandise of gold, and silver, and precious stones, and of pearls,…and oil, and fine flour, and wheat, and beasts, and sheep, and horses, and chariots, and slaves, and souls of men.”
2 Peter 2:3; “3And through covetousness shall they with feigned words make merchandise of you:…”
They will, eventually, be hated enough to be destroyed; for God is aware of their iniquities!
Revelation 18:5; “5For her sins have reached unto heaven, and God hath remembered her iniquities.”
Revelation 18:8; “8Therefore shall her plagues come in one day, death, and mourning, and famine; and she shall be utterly burned with fire: for strong is the Lord God who judgeth her.”
Revelation 22:12; “12And, behold, I come quickly; and my reward is with me, to give every man according as his work shall be.”
