DREAM: MYSTERY BABYLON
I would like to share a dream I received about who is Mystery Babylon, but first let me give a little background leading up to the dream:
Last week, the LORD laid it on my heart to study who is Mystery Babylon from Revelation 17. Lately, I have been hearing and reading from many on the internet, radio and TV that America is now considered Babylon. I, also, had believed that this to be true, but the LORD has now shown me that this is not completely Scriptural.
What I have been learning is that Mystery Babylon is a spiritual condition that is part of the false church, and though is does not represent a political government, it is part of a spiritual city. (Rev. 17:18) .
There are two 'last day' systems: the beast, which consists of the government/political system (Revelation 13), and the whore/harlot which is the religious system....the 'one world religion. This religious system rides on top of the beast, and, for a time, controls it. We see America playing a huge part in both of these systems.
I believe that the reason that the LORD has brought this to my attention lately is because we are seeing this false church emerging now through ecumenism. It is wanting to bring unity with the Evangelicals, Charismatic's and the Catholics. This movement started in the late '90's, but is now becoming stronger. Just last week there was a 3 day convention with highly respected evangelical leaders and the Catholic clergy. In further study, I found that they want to bring unity and denounce the Protestant Reformation. They truly have an agenda that they are promoting.
I believe that this is the merging of the 'one world religion' of the last days. It will be ruled by the false prophet, just like the beast system is ruled by the anti-christ.
This will bring false doctrine and teachings into the Church. While unity among the brethren is paramount and should be highly sought after, it is not acceptable if it brings false doctrine, teachings and heresies into the Church. There are many wonderful Christian brethren in the Catholic church that do not accept the present papacy and its false, un-biblical teachings. Once these seep into the true Church , it will spread like leaven. I believe that this could be part of the 'great deception' that comes in the last days:
"And for this reason God will send them strong delusion, that they should believe the lie" 2 Thessalonians 2:11
On October 25, 2017 I prayed to the LORD about this Mystery Babylon and asked if I was understanding it correctly. In my spirit I heard that I would receive a dream about it that night. Sure enough, I received a dream that I believe was prophetic as well as a confirmation. Like always, be use discernment and seek the LORD through prayer for your own confirmation on these matters.
In my dream, I was sitting outside on the ground with my back to a wall. Sitting next to me was my husband----though it didn't look or feel like my husband--I knew it was him. I wanted to talk with him, but when I looked up at him, he seemed so distraught, and per-occupied with his own thoughts. I thought to myself, 'HE is grieving over HIS children.' Somehow I knew and felt this in my spirit.
Then I glanced down at my arm and noticed a huge boil-type pimple on it. It was very large---like two inches high and one inch wide. I was horrified and my first thought was to show my husband, but I decided not to bother him. Instead I grabbed the boil and pushed out all the disgusting puss. Once I did that I noticed that it was COMPLETELY gone! There was no scarring or even a hint that it was there----it had totally healed up in a split-second!
The next scene was that my husband and I started walking down the street. To the left, we saw a huge sunken ballroom right out in the open. On my first glance, I saw people dancing the waltz in their white and black clothes. It was beautiful watching them glide across the ballroom floor. However, looking more closely, I noticed something very strange----I saw the women and they were dancing in bride gowns and veils. I saw their faces and they were lovely and quite beautiful. Then I looked at their partners and I was shocked! They were not men, but women! I then noticed that these women were wearing black gowns and lace veils over their faces -- it reminded of funeral clothes. I was quite disturbed about what I was seeing and wanted to know what was really going on, but that is when I woke up!
My husband, in this dream, was actually JESUS. HE was grieving over the state of HIS children, HIS beloved church that was being deceived. HE knew that there was a 'great falling away' that was coming. (2 Thess. 2:3) In the dream, I actually felt his sorrow while sitting next to him.
The boil on my arm represented the false doctrines/teachings. They are vile and a disgusting blemish on the Church. The reason that it completely disappeared from my arm is that I have renounced those teachings and been healed of their consequences. Also, I noticed that JESUS healed me without me even asking---HE knows are needs before we even ask! (Matthew 6:8)
The women dancing represents the two different churches--the true and false Church.. The women dressed in white bridal gowns are the Bride of Christ, while those dressed in the funeral gowns represented the false church with its false doctrines---which leads to death. The brides seemed completely oblivious to whom they were 'dancing' with. I believe this represents the Church coming into 'union' with deception, but are unaware of what they are doing.
The Bible uses women to describe different aspects of the Church or Israel. There is the harlot, both in the Old and New Testament; there is the Bride of Christ; and there is the woman giving birth in Revelation 12.
Please research this yourself and seek the LORD, because these last days are upon us. The enemy is at the door seeking whom he may devour. This calls for serious prayer as Mystery Babylon emerges. Pray that the Church stands only on the WORD of GOD and wakes up to the lies, traps and snares of the enemy.
In conclusion, please read these extremely important Scriptures below---they say it all:
"You boast, “We have entered into a covenant with death, with the realm of the dead we have made an agreement. When an overwhelming scourge sweeps by, it cannot touch us, for we have made a lie our refuge and falsehood our hiding place.” Isaiah 28:15
"I marvel that you are turning away so soon from Him who called you in the grace of Christ, to a different gospel, which is not another; but there are some who trouble you and want to pervert the gospel of Christ. But even if we, or an angel from heaven, preach any other gospel to you than what we have preached to you, let him be accursed. 9 As we have said before, so now I say again, if anyone preaches any other gospel to you than what you have received, let him be accursed.
For do I now persuade men, or God? Or do I seek to please men? For if I still pleased men, I would not be a bondservant of Christ." Galatians 1:6-10
"Let no one deceive you by any means; for that Day will not come unless the falling away comes first, and the man of sinis revealed, the son of perdition," 2 Thess 2:3
"Now the Spirit expressly says that in latter times some will depart from the faith, giving heed to deceiving spirits and doctrines of demons' 1 Tim. 1:1
" But there were also false prophets among the people, even as there will be false teachers among you, who will secretly bring in destructive heresies, even denying the Lord who bought them, and bring on themselves swift destruction. And many will follow their destructive ways, because of whom the way of truth will be blasphemed. By covetousness they will exploit you with deceptive words; for a long time their judgment has not been idle, and their destruction does not slumber. " 2 Peter 2:1-3
" For I know this, that after my departure savage wolves will come in among you, not sparing the flock. Also from among yourselves men will rise up, speaking perverse things, to draw away the disciples after themselves" Acts 20:29-30
