(Jer 51:7-9) Babylon hath been a golden cup in the LORD’S hand, that made all the earth drunken: the nations have drunken of her wine; therefore the nations are mad. Babylon is suddenly fallen and destroyed: howl for her; take balm for her pain, if so be she may be healed. We would have healed Babylon, but she is not healed: forsake her, and let us go every one into his own country: for her judgment reacheth unto heaven, and is lifted up even to the skies.
At the time of the Protestant reformation, many people left the Catholic church of the day, declaring it Babylon the Harlot. Many of the Reformers were previously Catholic Priests, and, or, had connections with the power structure of the Catholic church. While the reformation was good in many ways, the Reformers failed to strip it’s self of all of the false teachings of the Catholic church, teachings like church hierarchy and manipulation of various money doctrines to the benefit of the men who were on the top of the food chain.
Jesus told the scribes and pharisees, “Do not say that Abraham is your father, for you do the deeds of your father, the devil” (John 8:44) Jesus recognized in the religious system of his day, that a child is known by his deeds, a child will do the works of their father, that is where their loyalties lay. Jesus spoke to them the truth and yet they wanted to kill him, in John 8, Jesus told them “the Devil was a murderer from the beginning and there is no truth in him”. The Scribes and Pharisees wanted to heal, to save Babylon, their religious hierarchy. Isa. 1:21 says “How has the faithful city become a harlot?” Please spend the time and read my two part series – Jerusalem is Babylon and Jerusalem is Babylon part 2.
Beware of the former elders, beware of the former harlot church leaders who claim to have left the harlot, many of them have Babylon deeply engrained in themselves, they may not even be aware of it, they desire to heal Babylon. Some years ago such a man attempted to murder me, not literally, but murder all the same. Just as Jesus spoke truth to the scribes and pharisees, I spoke truth and they hated me. A son of Belial was hired by this man to falsely accuse me and to claim that I taught false doctrine, they lied about me and had me accused of being a cult leader, a man who simply told them the truth, they tried to murder! The bible study I have hosted in my home for many years has mostly, and almost entirely been comprised of immediate family members, hardly a cult following, but that didn’t stop them from claiming it. None of these people, or this son of Belial who falsely accused me, have repented of their attempted murder, to this day! I don’t know why I, Robert Begnaud, know what I know, I don’t know why the Lord has shown me the truth that he has. I am not the smartest man in the world, but I do know what I believe and why I believe it and I can defend it with a host of scripture. I will not be ashamed when the Lord comes to set this straight!
(Psa 50:16-21) But unto the wicked God saith, What hast thou to do to declare my statutes, or that thou shouldest take my covenant in thy mouth? Seeing thou hatest instruction, and castest my words behind thee. When thou sawest a thief, then thou consentedst with him, and hast been partaker with adulterers. Thou givest thy mouth to evil, and thy tongue frameth deceit. Thou sittest and speakest against thy brother; thou slanderest thine own mother’s son. These things hast thou done, and I kept silence; thou thoughtest that I was altogether such an one as thyself: but I will reprove thee, and set them in order before thine eyes.
Those who wish to heal Babylon are always speaking on the sidelines trying to correct the bad doctrine, they are exposing the personal sins of the leaders. Those who wish to heal Babylon (Christendom), are always so concerned about how to heal her, continually reaching out to her as in a heart of compassion, to save her, but what do the scriptures instruct us concerning her?
(Jer 51:9) We would have healed Babylon, but she is not healed: forsake her, and let us go every one into his own country: for her judgment reacheth unto heaven, and is lifted up even to the skies.
(Psa 137:8-9) O daughter of Babylon, who art to be destroyed; happy shall he be, that rewardeth thee as thou hast served us. Happy shall he be, that taketh and dasheth thy little ones against the stones.
(Isa 13:19-20) And Babylon, the glory of kingdoms, the beauty of the Chaldees’ excellency, shall be as when God overthrew Sodom and Gomorrah. It shall never be inhabited, neither shall it be dwelt in from generation to generation: neither shall the Arabian pitch tent there; neither shall the shepherds make their fold there.
(Isa 14:22) For I will rise up against them, saith the LORD of hosts, and cut off from Babylon the name, and remnant, and son, and nephew, saith the LORD.
(Isa 47:1-3) Come down, and sit in the dust, O virgin daughter of Babylon, sit on the ground: there is no throne, O daughter of the Chaldeans: for thou shalt no more be called tender and delicate. Take the millstones, and grind meal: uncover thy locks, make bare the leg, uncover the thigh, pass over the rivers. Thy nakedness shall be uncovered, yea, thy shame shall be seen: I will take vengeance, and I will not meet thee as a man.
(Jer 50:15) Shout against her round about: she hath given her hand: her foundations are fallen, her walls are thrown down: for it is the vengeance of the LORD: take vengeance upon her; as she hath done, do unto her. Cut off the sower from Babylon, and him that handleth the sickle in the time of harvest: for fear of the oppressing sword they shall turn every one to his people, and they shall flee every one to his own land.
(Rev 18:4-6) And I heard another voice from heaven, saying, Come out of her, my people, that ye be not partakers of her sins, and that ye receive not of her plagues. For her sins have reached unto heaven, and God hath remembered her iniquities. Reward her even as she rewarded you, and double unto her double according to her works: in the cup which she hath filled fill to her double.
Just in the same manner that Jesus came and overthrew the religious system of his day, Jerusalem was guilty of all of the blood of the prophets and men of God who were killed, so is the kingdom of Christendom become a harlot and is guilty of the blood of the Saints and all of the men of God who have been slain on the earth. When I mentioned earlier in this article the attempted murder on me, I knew that I was dealing with a servant of Babylon, I knew the modus operendi of this force, how they operate, they are murderers and you know that no murderer shall inherit the kingdom of God. The true people of God bring judgment unto truth, but the servants of Babylon are murderers, that’s the difference between the two, it’s how they deal with perceived enemies, one brings judgment unto truth, the other is a murderer!
I am again asking you brothers and sisters, the remnant of God, the called-out-ones, STOP IT, do not throw your hand in with murderers, stop arrogantly standing by your former church elder who wishes to save, to heal Babylon. Do justice, love mercy and walk humbly with your God, proving that which is good and the perfect will of God. If you believe I have wronged you, let me know, I am just a man, if I have wronged you, I will repent. If I have not wronged you and yet you still demand that I bow at your feet, then you are just a murderer, I am no murderer, I fear God! I am not here to heal Babylon, but to live my life to the glory of God alone, I will serve no other. And if you will not hear me, then you are without excuse. Come out of her my brothers! Let the Lord be glorified among you by your love, don’t throw your hand in with murderers, nor should you give consent unto theives!
(Luk 11:23) He that is not with me is against me: and he that gathereth not with me scattereth.
