Revelation 14:9-11

Display Chapter and Footnotes   

 9 And a third angel followed them, saying with a loud voice, "If any man worships the beast and his image, and receives his mark on his forehead, or on his hand,

 10 The same will drink of the wine of the wrath of God, which is poured out without mixture [of love] into the cup of his indignation;2 and he will be tormented with fire and brimstone in the presence of the holy angels, and in the presence of the Lamb.

 11 And the smoke of their torment ascends up forever and ever. Those who worship the beast and his image, and whoever receives the mark of his name have no rest day or night."

2 The same will drink of the wine of the wrath of God, which is poured out without mixture [of love] into the cup of his indignation; and he will be tormented with fire and brimstone in the presence of the holy angels, and in the presence of the Lamb. All the religions of the world today deny that man is a fallen, damned creature, who must be restored to the spiritual image of God with a complete change of heart; instead all the world's religions substitute some ritual, ceremony, or work that supposedly makes peace with God and allows man to continue to live in his selfish, beastly nature, still a slave to sin.

As man continues to live in sin, he fills up his cup with his sins; and when he dies still sinning, he must drink that cup (Hell) without the love of God helping him — God leaves him to suffer without his help and comfort, which is available to a man on the earth through God's conviction, man's repentance, and God then removing the sin from his heart by grace. In Hell man gets the desires of his heart in obsession; he replays every wrong action in his life over and over until he sickens of them, and until his desire is "burned out," one desire at a time. This is the torturous, painful experience of fire and brimstone. God is a consuming fire and he burns those desires away, when man becomes so desperate he would do anything, rather than continue that desire.

All who worship the beast with horns like a lamb, which is the head of all of today's so-called Christian sects, will also suffer the plagues of Babylon. This is the way Jeremiah describes it:

And the slain of the LORD shall be at that day from one end of the earth even to the other end of the earth. They shall not be lamented, neither gathered, nor buried; they shall be dung upon the ground.

Wail you shepherds and cry; and wallow in the ashes, you principal ones of the flock; for the days of your slaughter and of your dispersions have come, and you shall fall and be shattered like a crystal glass.

The shepherds shall have no way to flee, nor the principal ones of the flock to escape.

A voice of the cry of the shepherds, and a wailing of the principal ones of the flock, shall be heard. For the LORD has destroyed their pasture.

Put yourselves in array against Babylon round about. All of you that bend the bow, shoot at her, spare no arrows for she has sinned against the LORD.

Call together the archers against Babylon. All of you who bend the bow, camp against her all around; let none of them escape. Recompense her according to her work; according to all that she has done, do to her. For she has been proud against the LORD, against the Holy One of Israel.

The state of Christendom is described by the Word of the Lord within:

"Just like Judaism was taken over by the enemy, so has Christianity, which is corrupt, through and through. Like Daniel, you are captive of the Chaldeans. Your place of worship is filled with unclean birds. Babylon is great and mighty. Woe to those who try to bring good from evil. Oh Christendom, be not at ease in Babylon! There is no church in the world that Christ set up specifically; none of the churches reflect true Christianity. Christians today are not Christians. Christianity has no idea what I am or for what I stand. They cause my name to be blasphemed among the people. Church: forever sorry for what you have done, while at the same time turning right around and doing it again; it feeds itself. Great is the destruction of those places of worship. The Christian medium itself is conformable to death. They have taken the Bible and made it an unholy thing used to justify their immersion in sin. Do you agree with any who in their arrogance have stated that God excuses evil in believers? It's not fair, but they don't care. They are a clueless, fruitless people. All are filthy dreamers. He that doesn't listen is damned already. Their damnation does not slumber, nor do they remain sober, nor do they remain open minded in this present world. They have missed the mark. They have ignored my commands to turn from sin. They would have no laws. The new law became unrighteousness. How could they be mine if they journey in outward ways? Christians have lost the gift of life to govern themselves. These people no longer represent me; they have caused great indignation. They are unable to defeat sin because of scant belief; food is scant among them. For their survival, it is necessary to listen to the Spirit, but they are so busy praying, they cannot hear. The covenant of the Lord is a breakage of the people. And what does he offer us?—He offers himself. And what does he declare? I've warned them and given them the requirements and preached the exclusions; they should not expect anything else or conclusion.

They have passed their usefulness. I am going to clean my house."

The last two sentences were received in the late 3rd Quarter of 2010. The time is up for Babylon. The false church, all the so-called Christian sects, will be exposed to the whole world and humiliated; and that will occur very soon.
