Proverbs 15 (I have almost the whole chapter hightlighted, it has some great things to say about being wise and how to to obey God. Take sometime and think about what the verses mean.)
I just finished 2 Chronicles in 2 Chronicles 34 13-33. It is the story of Josiah, a king in Israel. I think its importaant for you becasue Josiah finds the God's Law for the 1st time in God's Temple and he tore his clothes in dispear becasue he realized how wrong of a lifestyle his county Israel (actually the land of Judah) was living. It aplies to everyone even me and you if we don't know what God's Word is and what his insrtuctions for our life are then how do we know how to live. But if we spend time in Gods Word even 15 min. a day draws us closer to him. And prayer to praying is just like "hanging out with GOD". He just wants you to talk to him. When you don't pray to God its like you walk past your best friend or sit down with him and don't talk to him, how do you think this makes GOD feel?
Last verse, is one of my favorites 1 John 2 15-17. It's a really cool verse because it's true how we live for the World and not God. There's alot more to talk about with this verse but I'm getting tired of typing
Revelation chapter 17 and 18 detail much about the three-fold Babylon of the End Times: Political, Economic and Religious Babylon. The events are mainly covered from an Earthly perspective. The Harlot riding the Beast represents Religious Babylon. She is portrayed as a "harlot" or a "prostitute" because she commits spiritual fornication with the kings or leaders of the world. This would be interpreted that she left her First Love, i.e., preaching the Reconciliation to God in Christ, pursuing instead pure monetary and political gain. Her primary purpose is to gain power over the Saints of God (and even non-believers) by any means possible.
She is clearly identified as a "CITY" (not a nation or country) ten (10) times in Revelation 14, 16, 17 and 18. Her location, as a CITY, is obvious to anyone who understands history. Therefore she is a CITY that:
1) has a Christian religious heritage,
2) is waxed exceedingly rich,
3) has the blood of Saints and Martyrs on her hands,
4) has tremendous religious influence throughout the world,
5) is clothed in purple and scarlet,
6) is located near the Mediterranean Sea,
7) is full of abominations, primarily idols,
8) is heavily adorned with gold and jewels,
9) is primarily represented by a woman instead of Jesus Christ,
10) is carrying a golden chalice, significant to her identity,
11) influences world political leaders because of her religious power,
12) sits on seven mountains or hills.
That pretty much means the Harlot was a prostitute who did it with the kings like in the lyrics and the "Great Babylon" was the beast she rode which had horns on its 7 heads. The harlot is the city dressed in gold and pearls because her armor was gold and wote pearls around her neck.
