religion is Babylon and God's Kingdom is Mount Zion.
Babylon is man's ideas about the god which they have created unto their liking, through the twisting and their
misinterpreted version of the Bible that comes through human opinion via the human fallen intellect. Babylon glorifies the works of men whereas Zion only glorifies God.
Kingdom is not a religious organization, system or structure which can be shut down.
IF IT CAN BE SHUT DOWN, THEN IT'S
NOT OF GOD.
Christ, THE HEAD OF HIS TRUE ZION CHURCH OF THE HABITATION OF HIS SPIRIT, spoke
the following to Charles Newbold
"You cannot take Zion down to Babylon.
You have to come out of her.
You cannot sing Zion's songs in Babylon. They can only be sung
"Zion is a place in the Spirit where Jesus is the only thing there is.
""Lord," my questions seemed endless, "this
kind of freedom, this independence, this liberty--will it not be a great threat to those who lead in Babylon?”
"Oh yes, My son, they will take great offense at My holy ones. They will
say you are deceived. They will slander, accuse, and defame you. They would plot to kill you if they could. For you, My holy ones, have become what they cannot, because they cannot let go of what they have. Yet, it shall all very soon be taken from them anyway.”
"Tell me, Lord, in view of all of this, have we really heard the gospel yet?
What is the gospel?
Speak plainly to us.”
"The gospel has been twisted and perverted to fit the molds of traditions and religions--so uniquely so, that
men confuse the Christ with their systems and join converts to them rather than to Him.
"But the truth of the gospel is this: that I, the Lord God of Israel, came in human flesh, fulfilled
the Law and Prophets, shed My blood of righteousness, arose from the grave, ascended into heaven where I now sit at the right hand of God the Father, where I intercede on behalf of the saints, and through faith am gathering unto Myself My assembly of holy
ones. They are gathered into Me.
They are My general assembly of the first-born. I have birthed them by My Spirit. I have filled them with My Spirit. I lead them by My Spirit. They are one
in faith, hope, spirit, and love. They are everywhere and worship Me in spirit and truth. In obedience they serve Me where they are, out of who they are in Me. And none of this has anything to do with that Thing men call church. They are My body, My temple,
My holy ones, a royal priesthood, a holy nation.
They are above institutionalism--beyond doctrines, creeds, and rituals.
are not religious. They are sanctified.
"This is the good news: that Jesus Christ is Lord. And whosoever shall call upon His name shall be saved.”
"Lord, I know of young pastors, Spirit-filled, who love you and want to go on with you. What shall they do once they see these things?”
"No man having put
his hands to the plow and looking back is fit for the kingdom of heaven."
"Again, I plead with you, my Lord, speak plainly.”
And He said, "He
who sees these things and obeys My word will simply come out. He will leave home and family and friends and come out. It is a hard word, who can hear?
"These are they who follow the Lamb wherever He goes." Rev. 14:4.
"Lord, what shall I do with this word?”
"Shout it from the housetops. Proclaim it to the nations. What has been revealed to you
in secret, proclaim it in the open. Be bold! Be forthright! Be strong! Speak it boldly. Shock the nations. Rattle their doors.
Shake their foundations.
If they cannot stand, they are not of Me. If it can be shut down and closed up, it is not of Me. If it can be tossed by the wind, it is not of Me. If it produces anger and violence and malicious gossip and slandering and lies from those who hear it, they are
not of Me, for such things do not come out of Me.
"Behold, I have laid My foundation. I have built My walls. And now I am dropping My plumb line. My word of truth goes forth. That which does
not align with My word will be torn down and cast into the sea.
I am sending My prophets again. They go out in the spirit of Elijah, preaching
the kingdom of God and calling men everywhere to repent and be immersed into Jesus. They are My "John the Baptists." They go forth to prepare the way of the Lord.
"Shall I return to wed a harlot?
Oh, how repulsive that is to Me. Nor shall I take unto Myself those who are joined to her. Search your hearts, My people. Babylon is in the heart. Come out of her and she will come out of you. Zion, likewise, is in the heart. Come unto Me and I will become
your only love.
"Arise. Shine. Come unto Me.”
ALL OF MAN'S RELIGIOUS STRUCTURES SHALL FALL !
1 And the word of the LORD came unto me, saying,
2 Son of man, prophesy against the prophets of Israel that prophesy, and say you unto them that prophesy out of their own hearts, Hear you the word of the LORD;
3 Thus says the Lord GOD; Woe unto the foolish prophets, that follow their own spirit, and have seen nothing!
4 O Israel, your prophets are like the foxes in the deserts.
5 You have not gone up into the breaches, neither built up the wall for the house of Israel to stand in the battle in the day of the LORD.
6 They have seen vanity and lying divination, saying, The LORD says: and the LORD has not sent them: and they have made others to hope that they would confirm the word.
7 Have you not seen a vain vision, and have you not spoken a lying divination, whenever you say, The LORD says it; although I have not spoken?
8 Therefore thus says the Lord GOD; Because you have spoken vanity, and seen lies, therefore, behold, I am against you, says the Lord GOD.
9 And my hand shall be upon the prophets that see vanity, and that divine lies: they shall not be in the assembly of my people,
neither shall they be written in the register of the house of Israel, neither shall they enter into the land of Israel; and you shall know that I am the Lord GOD.
10 Because, even because they have seduced my people, saying, Peace; and there was no peace; and one built up a wall, and, lo, others daubed it with untempered mortar:
11 Say unto them which daub it with untempered mortar, that it shall fall: there shall be an overflowing shower; and you, O great hailstones, shall fall; and a stormy
wind shall break it.
12 Lo, when the wall has fallen, shall it not be said unto you, Where is the daubing with which
you have daubed it?
13 Therefore thus says the Lord GOD; I will even break it with a stormy wind in my fury; and there
shall be an overflowing shower in my anger, and great hailstones in my fury to consume it.
14 So will I break down the
wall that you have daubed with untempered mortar, and bring it down to the ground, so that its foundation shall be uncovered, and it shall fall, and you shall be consumed in its midst: and you shall know that I am the LORD.
15 Thus will I accomplish my wrath upon the wall, and upon them that have daubed it with untempered mortar, and will say unto you, The wall is no more, neither they
that daubed it;
16 That is, the prophets of Israel who prophesy concerning Jerusalem, and who see visions of peace for
her, and there is no peace, says the Lord GOD.
17 Likewise, you son of man, set your face against the daughters of your
people, who prophesy out of their own heart; and prophesy you against them,
18 And say, Thus says the Lord GOD; Woe
to the women that sew charms upon all wrists, and make veils for the heads, of every length, to hunt souls! Will you hunt the souls of my people, and will you save the souls alive that belong to you?
19 And will you profane me among my people for handfuls of barley and for pieces of bread, to slay the souls that should not die, and to save the souls alive that should not live, by your lying to my people that hear
20 Therefore thus says the Lord GOD; Behold, I am against your charms, with which you hunt the souls there
like birds, and I will tear them from your arms, and will let the souls go, even the souls that you hunt like birds.
veils also will I tear, and deliver my people out of your hand, and they shall be no more in your hand to be hunted; and you shall know that I am the LORD.
Because with lies you have made the heart of the righteous sad, whom I have not made sad; and strengthened the hands of the wicked, that he should not turn from his wicked way, to save his life:
23 Therefore you shall see no more false visions, nor practice divinations: for I will deliver my people out of your hand: and you shall know that I am the LORD.
