2 Thess 2:3 – Let no man deceive you by any means: for that day shall not come, except there come a falling away first, and that man of sin be revealed, the son of perdition; Rev 14:8-10 – And there followed another angel, saying, Babylon is fallen, is fallen, that great city, because she made all nations drink of the wine of the wrath of her fornication. The original city of Babylon was established by the Amorites. The Amorites controlled most of Canaan before the Israel conquest. Joshua’s and David’s conquest killed and drove most of them out, yet they returned and both Israel and Judah mingled with the Amorites and became confounded, confused, and strangers devoured their strength, resulting in Gods judgment. The Amorites were a mighty nation, usurping power, established Babylon, and were also descendants of the Nephillim, and practiced dark arts and witchcraft, but were way ahead of their time in establishing a well functioning and free society which transformed Mesopotamia. (See Wikipedia, Amorites, Effects on Mesopotamia.) This civilization sounds much like our nation in many ways. This same spirit is working in this nation and the church today. Babylon means confusion by mixture. Hos 7:8-9 – Ephraim, he hath mixed himself among the people; Ephraim is a cake not turned. 9) Strangers have devoured his strength, and he knoweth it not: yea, gray hairs are here and there upon him, yet he knoweth not. It seems that nothing changes. Eccl 1:9 – That which has been is that which will be, And that which has been done is that which will be done. So, there is nothing new under the sun.
Lev 18:2-4 – Speak unto the children of Israel, and say unto them, I am the Lord your God. 3) After the doings of the land of Egypt, wherein ye dwelt, shall ye not do: and after the doings of the land of Canaan, whither I bring you, shall ye not do: neither shall ye walk in their ordinances. 4) Ye shall do my judgments, and keep mine ordinances, to walk therein: I am the Lord your God. Ordinance means statute; regulation; enactment, prescription; statutes, law, customs or manner; such as “After the doings of the land of Egypt”; “After the doings of the land of Canaan”; or degenerate practices. We live in a nation where ruling authorities practice and are friendly to these practices (abominations), causing it to increase! Gods Ordinances: Lev 18:6-20 – Commands, thou shall not commit incest with family members, brothers, sisters, cousins, in-laws. (Vs 6: “near of kin” means mostly, kindred by blood.) In our nation today Incest continues to increase. The incest rate is 40% for girls and 30% for boys, many that do the statics believe it is much more… 60% girls and 50% boys. (It has risen much faster with boys!) Lev 18:21-24 – Commands; shall not commit adultery; Offer their children by fire to Molech (Abortion) and in so doing worship and serve others idols which are not God; Commands also not to practice homosexuality or bestiality. Lev 18:24-27 – Defile not ye yourselves in any of these things: for in all these the nations are defiled which I cast out before you: 25) And the land is defiled: therefore I do visit the iniquity thereof upon it, and the land itself vomiteth out her inhabitants. 26) Ye shall therefore keep my statutes and my judgments, and shall not commit any of these abominations; neither any of your own nation, nor any stranger that sojourneth among you: 27) (For all these abominations have the men of the land done, which were before you, and the land is defiled (Canaan). There are 1,206,192 abortions per year and our nation becomes more friendly to abortion, and gay rights. Bestiality is legal in 19 states in the United States including D.C.. In 2011 our military removed all laws, against sodomy and bestiality making them legal in the milatary.
Ps 125:3 – For the rod of the wicked shall not rest upon the lot of the righteous; lest the righteous put forth their hands unto iniquity. These practices God calls abominations are called the ordinances of the Amorites, because the Amorites were dominate in Canaan before Israel’s invasion and for some time there after. It is a spirit over this nation that must be brought down. Eccl 1:10 – Is there any thing whereof it may be said, See, this is new? it hath been already of old time, which was before us. Here’s the problem. God will judge the nation, those that practice these abominations, those that are friendly to those that practice these abominations and Christians that do nothing to change it. 1 Peter 4:17-19 – For the time is come that judgment must begin at the house of God: and if it first begin at us, what shall the end be of them that obey not the gospel of God? 18) And if the righteous scarcely be saved, where shall the ungodly and the sinner appear? 19) Wherefore let them that suffer according to the will of God commit the keeping of their souls to him in well doing, as unto a faithful Creator. This Amorite spirit has risen in our nation to confront our Lord’s church, desiring to force the church to sanction gay marriages in the church. Will we take the sector of righteousness and declare the word of God and bring judgment to this spirit from hell. Rev 12:17 - And the dragon was enraged with the woman, and he went to make war with the rest of her offspring, who keep the commandments of God and have the testimony of Jesus Christ. Rev 12:11 – And they overcame him by the blood of the Lamb and by the word of their testimony, and they did not love their lives to the death. Matt 11:12 – Ever since the time of John the kingdom of God suffers violence and the violent take it by force. There is a violence in the love of God that Christians must reckon with, or God will reckon with them and judge them along with the wicked. Many understand, “the violence required in the putting off of the old and the putting on of the new!” However, many see Jesus Christ as a gentle savior with a lamb in His arms, but what most don’t see, is that God, hear’s the cries of the oppressed continually and must judge the oppressors at some time. Gen 15:16 – But in the fourth generation they shall come hither again: for the iniquity of the Amorites is not yet full. (Israel took Canaan with God to bring judgment upon the Amorites!) Heb 13:8 - Jesus Christ is the same yesterday, today, and forever. Today is the time of judgment of this Amorite spirit upon our nation.
Isa 34:6 – The sword of the Lord is filled with blood, it is made fat with fatness, and with the blood of lambs and goats, with the fat of the kidneys of rams: for the Lord hath a sacrifice in Bozrah, and a great slaughter in the land of Idumea. (This is not animal sacrifices, but of a great slaughter of God’s enemies.) Isa 13:3 – I have commanded my sanctified ones, I have also called my mighty ones for mine anger, even them that rejoice in my highness. (Mighty ones are not angels, but His church or people.) Ps 94:15-16 – But judgment shall return unto righteousness: and all the upright in heart shall follow it. 16) Who will rise up for me against the evildoers? or who will stand up for me against the workers of iniquity? Jer 5:1 – Run ye to and fro through the streets of Jerusalem, and see now, and know, and seek in the broad places thereof, if ye can find a man, if there be any that executeth judgment, that seeketh the truth; and I will pardon it. Jer 22:3-5 – Thus saith the Lord; Execute ye judgment and righteousness, and deliver the spoiled out of the hand of the oppressor: and do no wrong, do no violence to the stranger, the fatherless, nor the widow, neither shed innocent blood in this place. 4) For if ye do this thing indeed, then shall there enter in by the gates of this house kings sitting upon the throne of David, riding in chariots and on horses, he, and his servants, and his people. 5) But if ye will not hear these words, I swear by myself, saith the Lord, that this house shall become a desolation.” Jer 48:10 – Cursed be he that doeth the work of the Lord deceitfully, and cursed be he that keepeth back his sword from blood. (Deceitfully means laxness, slackness, slackening, deceit, or treachery) How sad it is that most of the church don’t know their part in warring against the powers of darkness and how He has equipped and given us the authority and power to do so. Prov 29:18 - Where there is no vision, the people perish/unrestrained: but he that keepeth the law, happy is he. Ps 149:5-9 – Let the saints be joyful in glory: let them sing aloud upon their beds. 6) Let the high praises of God be in their mouth, and a twoedged sword in their hand; 7) To execute vengeance upon the heathen, and punishments upon the people; 8) To bind their kings with chains, and their nobles with fetters of iron; 9) To execute upon them the judgment written: this honour have all his saints. Praise ye the Lord.
Dealing with the Amorite spirit in our nation and church.
* Amos 2:9 – Yet destroyed I the Amorite before them, whose height was like the height of the cedars, and he was strong as the oaks; yet I destroyed his fruit from above, and his roots from beneath.
* Ezek 21:28-32 – “And you, son of man, prophesy and say, ‘Thus says the Lord God concerning the Ammonites and concerning their reproach,’ and say: ‘A sword, a sword is drawn, Polished for laughter, For consuming, for flashing. 29) While they see false visions for you, While they divine a lie to you, To bring you on the necks of the wicked, the slain Whose day has come, Whose iniquity shall end. 30) ‘Return it to its sheath. I will judge you in the place where you were created, In the land of your nativity. 31) I will pour out My indignation on you; I will blow against you with the fire of My wrath, And deliver you into the hands of brutal men who are skillful to destroy. 32) You shall be fuel for the fire; your blood shall be in the midst of the land. You shall not be remembered, For I the Lord have spoken.’” (After this judgment upon the Amorites their name was never heard of in history again!)
