The Birds Of Babylon Part IV
he series on the Birds of Babylon has sought to show the dissemination of false doctrine – as a multitude of religionists believe they are serving the LORD, is a key characteristic in understanding how the Kingdom of God becomes leavened at the end of the age. When we move in the animating power of the “False Prophet,” as described in Revelation 13, we are manifesting the deceptive design found in supernatural error.
In accord with the metaphysical descriptions where “Babylon” is imaged as a tree in Daniel 4, or a cage in Revelation 18, the collective which materializes is formed as the multitude congregates around their shared consensus. This is the “image of the beast,” which comes into existence as the Spiritual “birds” accumulate in proximity to one another. Thus, towards the very end of the cycle, the entity which had previously enjoyed the presence of the groom and the true bride (Christ and His body), has transitioned to that which we label “Babylon.”
“Babylon the great is fallen, is fallen, and is become the habitation of devils, and the hold of every foul spirit, and a cage of every unclean and hateful bird” (Revelation 18:2).
Contrary to the shallow literalism seen in those espousing a physical Israelite dominated millennial reign, where flesh and blood supposedly does inherit the Kingdom of God, the Scriptures tell us the Spirit of the LORD turns all flesh and blood over to these corrosive Spiritual “birds” – and they are grotesquely seen as being invited to feast on the flesh of all:
“And I saw an angel standing in the sun; and he cried with a loud voice, saying to all the fowls that fly in the midst of heaven, come and gather yourselves together unto the supper of the great God; That ye may eat the flesh of kings…and the flesh of all men, both free and bond, both small and great” (Revelation 19:18).
The universal object of this hideous “feast” – all men, who are free and bond, or small and great – is clearly reminiscent of Revelation’s description of the “all” who receive the triple six mark of the beast:
“And he causeth all, both small and great, rich and poor, free and bond, to receive a mark….” (Revelaton 13:16).
However, the literalists tell us this “all” is to be present in a valley on the edge of the Middle Eastern nation called Israel (presumably wearing army boots, and carrying an M16), where they, along with the nation’s “kings” who have abandoned their comfortable palaces, are “all” scheduled to be devoured by some rather nasty vultures.
What’s wrong with this picture?
A faithfully derived analysis of this linguistic construction relegates the identity of these birds, “that fly in the midst of heaven,” to that of wicked spirits whose fallen nature compels them to Spiritually devour unrepentant flesh and blood. Indeed, previous prophetic output from our ministry has extensively addressed the allegorical “two parts” of flesh and blood, which form 2/3rds of the “all” in question, as well as their final Spiritual “third,” which is not one with the LORD of glory.
Mathematically speaking, mankind’s individual nature, apart from His Spiritual “third” coming into union with the LORD, leaves him with .666% of his total existence.
“And it shall come to pass, that in all the land, saith the Lord, two parts therein shall be cut off and die: but the third shall be left therein. And I will bring the third part through the fire, and will refine them as silver is refined, and will try them as gold is tried: they shall call on my name, and I will hear them: I will say, It is my people: and they shall say, The Lord is my God” (Zechariah 13:8, 9).
Having previously (and repeatedly) addressed thisMystery of Thirds, we recognize that when an earlier chapter in Revelation describes these demonic entities (the “birds” of Revelation 19), they were destined to kill that third part of unrepentant mankind:
“…[they] were prepared for an hour, and a day, and a month, and a year, for to slay the third part of men….by these…..was the third part of men killed…” (Revelation 9:18).
Vast numbers of believers cannot receive this because their Spirits have been corrupted by strong error (II Thessalonians 2:11) disseminated via the Birds of Babylon – the vessels of dishonor who stubbornly refuse to allow the Spirit of the LORD to control their other two thirds – their hearts and their minds – in accord with Supernaturally revealed truth.
“Trust in the LORD with all thine heart; and lean not unto thine own understanding” (Proverbs 3:5).
The False Prophets, which are now all around us, professing themselves to be “prophecy teachers,” are actually receptacles for the Satanic spirits imaged as “fowls that fly in the midst of heaven,” and God is gathering the lost multitude of humanity into one place (the “hold of every foul spirit”), through these “bird’s” collective efforts, where He will unleash His wrath upon them.
“Wherefore come out from among them, and be ye separate, saith the Lord, and touch not the unclean [Birds of Babylon], and I will receive you” (II Corinthians 6;17).
