How Does One “Come Out of Her” If They Don’t Know Who Her Is And That They Are In Her?

This is a tough one, and one reason it is tough is because it is too easy to stand in judgement of other people, even beyond that which the LORD GOD has given his followers the authority to do.

For those that have been coming to this site for a long enough time, know that I attach myself to as few man-made entities as possible. I am a difficult person to convince of things, even though I do consider myself open-minded enough to study those things that interest me or what GOD has put before me, before I rush to judgement. To be as transparent (honest) as possible, my approach is far from perfect, as I am but mortal.

I belong to no churches, clubs, etc. and I seldom visit other’s websites for information other than curiosity or a resulting trip through read-searching. I’ll explain further why in just a bit.

Since I was a young boy, I attended church. Perhaps there were as many as a dozen or more churches that I visited more than once, often times being forced to sit quietly in a stuffy old, musty building listening to some man “preach,” sometimes pounding his fist on the pulpit, other times sobbing and blubbering in front of his congregation, but most often offering up information that, even as a child I knew somehow was not right, was later in my life discovered to be false.

In my quiet protests, and sometimes not so quiet as I took every opportunity I could to act out and fool around without endangering my backside to the switch of the old man, I did learn or absorb many more things than I thought I was at the time. So many of those lessons have come back on me in my later life to show me a lot was false doctrine, some even utter nonsense.

Today, I take my lessons from the Holy Spirit, for it is only Him that I trust.

I am struggling with this writing because I don’t want to come across as some know-it-all “Bible Scholar” or a judgmental and hypocritical fool. I pray that I am following the LORD GOD’s direction.

Over the past few months, I have put a very close eye on a certain website (no names but I’m sure some readers will know where I’m at). Let me say that I really find no fault with the website. As a matter of fact, I have learned a great deal and continue to do so. Like with all things, I read and/or hear and then take it to prayer and seeking confirmation from the Holy Spirit.

Let me explain a bit further why I have chosen to watch and observe. In my own struggle to find truth, something that hounded me since I was very young, although I didn’t know it at the time, the Holy Spirit drove me to read, read, read and by faith I believed that if I kept searching I would find the Truth. This is one of the Lord God’s promises.

It was perhaps a year or two ago, that the Holy Spirit showed me something about Creation. At some point along the way, that “still small voice” (His sheep hear his voice and recognize it) told me that I can never discover the truth in his “Mysteries” until I understood, who I am, where I came from, and where I am going.

Through that search, I learned some pretty amazing things about Creation; things that are right before us but we can’t see them. We shouldn’t get impatient in our search because the Holy Spirit will only gives us the “vision” and the “hearing” in amounts and at speeds we can handle. If we are incapable of handling certain things, trust me when I say, GOD won’t give it to us. It’s that simple. Be happy in the meat that is meted to you, for His blessings will still be poured out on you.

What I learned about Creation (perhaps a long book would cover it) I stumbled over for quite awhile. Why? Because it wasn’t what I had been taught for nearly 60 years of religious doctrine. With the power of the Holy Spirit, I continued to search and research. With each passing day, the Holy Spirit strengthened and increased my knowledge of the subject. I began to share with others a little bit, however, I remained skeptical that something wasn’t right; an apprehension born in me from the years of false teachings.

Seeking confirmation from the Lord God that what I had learned was His Truth, out of the blue, sort of, one day I ended up at this one website where the lead person had published a video. In short, what the person in the video was saying was what the Holy Spirit had shown him about the truths of Creation.

I knew at that moment that this guy was “alright” and so, I checked in more often than I had been. Mind you, getting burned over the years from false doctrine still has left me gun shy.

Back to the subject at hand, over the next few months when I took some time to visit the site, I began reading the many hundreds of comments this guy’s following were leaving. This is when my heart began to be troubled again.

It’s difficult, as I have said, to sort this all out in order to have some kind of Holy Spirit understanding of what’s going on. Reading the comments, I soon discovered part of what is the problem (this problem is in my flesh and not in GOD’s spirit…I know) with so many people today and why they might be missing out on more of the LORD GOD’s blessings.

The problem? People are so heavily burdened within their own idolatry (not knowing it) and Pagan worship (once again, not knowing it). The comments spoke freely of such things as “Merry Christmas,” events at Halloween, carrying on about birthdays, Easter, etc. Some of this displaying was directed at the person who heads the website as though he, himself, was some kind of god to be worshiped…fawning and swooning all over him.

For whatever it’s worth, I believe the majority of these people think they are doing good things. They just have not had their spiritual eyes opened enough to see the whole truth about things.

How can the LORD GOD be totally happy with us when we disobey him? I know that each of us has our walk. I know that to each of us GOD gives us what he wants us to have and the speed according to his will. I have little patience but I pray regularly for more and better understanding.

Jesus told his disciples that they can never have peace in their lives until they turn their backs on the things of this world. Can we honestly turn our backs on this world if we continue as a regular supporter of everything or most things of this world?

We can separate ourselves from so much more of the evils and distractions in our existence, but we have to try; we have to want to. But can we want to try if we don’t even know that we are mired in “Her,” the Whore of Babylon? If you can’t see it, why? Is the LORD GOD preventing you from seeing the idolatry in standing and saluting flags, governments, political parties, fawning over a church leader or politician, etc.? Is the LORD GOD preventing you from seeing your Pagan worship of such things as Christmas, Easter, Halloween, St. Patrick’s Day, birthdays, etc. etc.? Or is it that you like your fleshly life and don’t want to see these things? Are we somehow “programmed” to be selective in those things that the LORD GOD has given us freely; those things we are comfortable with?

There’s something to be said about people stating their reluctance to have the world come to an end because they are enjoying what’s here – the “good life.” GOD told us that we should hate the things of this world. You can’t serve two masters, for you will love the one and hate the other. Do we somehow think we possess the strength to be obedient to both without running into problems?

It’s a troubling thing to see the well-intentioned, exclaiming their love of Jesus and hoping a praying Christ will return soon, while glorifying in their own idolatry and Pagan worship.

I know all things are of GOD’s will. I pray that you will ask that He will open your eyes, remove that strong delusion that is preventing you from receiving his blessings.

I don’t stand in judgment of anyone. I only pray that you see that your life can be better by shedding the evil and putting on the Holy Spirit.

Okay, it’s been nearly 24 hours since I began writing this piece and struggling terribly with it. My struggle was in sounding above others, and yet I know I am not. The rest of my struggle is in having the knowledge and wisdom to understand that everyone of us, are where we are in our lives because of GOD’s will.

After writing it, I intended to delete it. When I headed in that direction, something inside of me told me to wait until the morning, when I should reread it and see how I feel about it then. Perhaps, an edit here and there and it could become a blessing to someone in need…or not.

Around midnight last night, I had gone to bed and was reading. I fired up my Kindle and once again opened the 2nd Book of Esdras (Ezra) in Chapter 7. I’ll begin with verse 1 and will take the liberty to highlight those spiritual “pearls” that were revealed to me. If you see words surrounded by [ ] these I have added for clarity.

“{7:1} And when I had made an end of speaking these words, there was sent unto me the angel which had been sent unto me the nights afore:”

{7:2} And he said unto me, Up, Esdras [Tom?], and hear the words that I am come to tell thee.
{7:3} And I said, Speak on, my God. Then said he unto me, The sea is set in a wide place, that it might be deep and great.
{7:4} But put the case the entrance were narrow, and like a river;

{7:5} Who then could go into the sea to look upon it, and to rule it? if he went not through the narrow, how could he come into the broad?
{7:6} There is also another thing; A city is builded, and set upon a broad field, and is full of all good things:
{7:7} The entrance thereof is narrow, and is set in a dangerous place to fall, like as if there were a fire on the right hand, and on the left a deep water:
{7:8} And one only path between them both, even between the fire and the water, so small that there could but one man go there at once.
{7:9} If this city now were given unto a man for an inheritance, if he never shall pass the danger set before it, how shall he receive this inheritance?
{7:10} And I said, It is so, Lord. Then said he unto me, Even so also is Israel’s [Church] portion.
{7:11} Because for their sakes I made the world: and when Adam transgressed my statutes, then was decreed that now is done.

{7:12} Then were the entrances of this world made narrow, full of sorrow and travail: they are but few and evil, full of perils,: and very painful.
{7:13} For the entrances of the elder world were wide and sure, and brought immortal fruit.
{7:14} If then they that live labour not to enter these strait and vain things, they can never receive those that are laid up for them.
{7:15} Now therefore why disquietest thou thyself, [Tom] seeing thou art but a corruptible man? and why art thou moved, whereas thou art but mortal?
{7:16} Why hast thou not considered in thy mind this thing that is to come, rather than that which is present?
{7:17} Then answered I and said, O Lord that bearest rule, thou hast ordained in thy law, that the righteous should inherit these things, but that the ungodly should perish.
{7:18} Nevertheless the righteous shall suffer strait things, and hope for wide: for they that have done wickedly have suffered the strait things, and yet shall not see the wide.

{7:19} And he said unto me. There is no judge above God, and none that hath understanding above the Highest.
{7:20} For there be many that perish in this life, because they despise the law of God that is set before them.
{7:21} For God hath given strait commandment to such as came, what they should do to live, even as they came, and what they should observe to avoid punishment.
{7:22} Nevertheless they were not obedient unto him; but spake against him, and imagined vain things;
{7:23} And deceived themselves by their wicked deeds; and said of the most High, that he is not; and knew not his ways:
{7:24} But his law have they despised, and denied his covenants; in his statutes have they not been faithful, and have not performed his works.
{7:25} And therefore, Esdras [Tom?], for the empty are empty things, and for the full are the full things.
{7:26} Behold, the time shall come, that these tokens which I have told thee shall come to pass, and the bride shall appear, and she coming forth shall be seen, that now is withdrawn from the earth.
{7:27} And whosoever is delivered from the foresaid evils shall see my wonders.
{7:28} For my son Jesus shall be revealed with those that be with him, and they that remain shall rejoice within four hundred years.
{7:29} After these years shall my son Christ die, and all men that have life.
{7:30} And the world shall be turned into the old silence seven days, like as in the former judgments: so that no man shall remain.
{7:31} And after seven days the world, that yet awaketh not, shall be raised up, and that shall die that is corrupt
{7:32} And the earth shall restore those that are asleep in her, and so shall the dust those that dwell in silence, and the secret places shall deliver those souls that were committed unto them.
{7:33} And the most High shall appear upon the seat of judgment, and misery shall pass away, and the long suffering shall have an end:

{7:34} But judgment only shall remain, truth shall stand, and faith shall wax strong:
{7:35} And the work shall follow, and the reward shall be shewed, and the good deeds shall be of force, and wicked deeds shall bear no rule.
