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. (End part one, now start part two). And the fruits that thy soul lusted after are departed from thee, and all things which were dainty and goodly are departed from thee, and thou shalt find them no more at all. Revelation 18:4-5,14. These verses are talking about that Great City of Sin, Babylon, also known as the city of Rome, Italy. This whole world is full of Sin, and Christians must learn how to work in and around Sin without that Sin "sticking" to the Christian. There comes a time when Christians must leave the place of Vile Sin, and go to where Sin is less rampant. In these verses, the Sin is GREAT, and the Lord is going to wipe it off the face of the earth, hence the Command to Believers, "Come out of her My People, NOW". The point of part one is, Obedience to EVERYTHING the Lord Commands because His Commands WILL Save your Life. To disobey may be to die. (For example, "Don't play ball on the Interstate, you could die"). Part two is slightly different. All Christians like to enjoy the Blessings the Lord sends their way. A good job, nice house, nice Things, AS LONG AS THOSE THINGS DON'T TAKE HOLD OF THE CHRISTIAN. Question, can you drop and walk away from any and all "blessings" you enjoy today? If tomorrow, you find yourself in prison, in solitary confinement, could you still Praise, Honour, and Worship the Lord God Almighty the same as when you were "blessed" the day before? If not, some "Thing" has a hold of you and NOW, TODAY, is a GOoD time to deal with it. Take anything, or EVERYTHING, and ask the Lord if you Covet or Lust after anything, to purge you of it or purge it from you. Moses left "the good life" to go live "The Godly Life", he gave up man's Dainty's to Live In God's Blessings. Can you do this, and, Be Blessed?
