What is the wine of Babylon?

Spread the love

Wine is a mocker, strong drink is raging:  and whosoever is deceived thereby is not wise. 

Proverbs 20:1

If you study the book of Revelation, you’d come to know God warned His people not to drink the wine of Babylon, lest they partake in the sins of Babylon and receive the punishment that will be coming on her as well.

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.  5 For her sins have reached unto heaven, and God hath remembered her iniquities. Revelation 18:4-5

What is the wine of Babylon? When it comes to Bible prophecy, things are not taken in the literal manner, but are symbolic, expressing a coded message that needs to be decoded.

Wine in Bible prophecy means false doctrines. The Mother of Harlots, which is the Roman Church, has led the whole world into drinking(following) her wine( false doctrines).

And I saw one of his heads as it were wounded to death;  and his deadly wound was healed:  and all the world wondered after the beast.

Revelation 13:3

Let’s look at some of the false doctrines(wine) the Church of Rome(Babylon) is propagating. If we know the wine of Babylon we would not drink it and receive the seven last plagues. God is warning everyone who can reason to run away from these false doctrines, so that they don’t receive the punishment coming upon the Church, which has persecuted God’s people since the beginning of her existence.

Sunday Worship

Sunday worship is the most widely known wine the whole world is drinking. Sunday worship is the creation of the Papal church and it has not basis in the Scripture. The Catholic church themselves admit this fact , and caution all those who want to live by the Bible alone to worship on Saturday.

But notwithstanding all the efforts to establish Sunday sacredness, papists themselves publicly confessed the divine authority of the Sabbath and the human origin of the institution by which it had been supplanted. In the sixteenth century a papal council plainly declared: “Let all Christians remember that the seventh day was consecrated by God, and hath been received and observed, not only by the Jews, but by all others who pretend to worship God; though we Christians have changed their Sabbath into the Lord’s Day.”—Ibid., pages 281, 282. Those who were tampering with the divine law were not ignorant of the character of their work. They were deliberately setting themselves above God…. {DD 26.4}

The pope has changed the day of rest from the seventh to the first day. He has thought to change the very commandment that was given to cause man to remember his Creator. He has thought to change the greatest commandment in the decalogue and thus make himself equal with God, or even exalt himself above God. The Lord is unchangeable, therefore His law is immutable; but the pope has exalted himself above God, in seeking to change His immutable precepts of holiness, justice, and goodness. He has trampled underfoot God’s sanctified day, and, on his own authority, put in its place one of the six laboring days. The whole nation has followed after the beast, and every week they rob God of His holy time. The pope has made a breach in the holy law of God, but I saw that the time had fully come for this breach to be made up by the people of God and the waste places built up. {EW 65.1}

Immortality of the Soul( The dead go straight to heaven or hell )

It is sad to see so called Christians praying for their dead loved ones, as if they still lived on in an “after life”. This one of the oldest lie ever told. The devil deceived our first parents that “Ye shall not surely die:  5 For God doth know that in the day ye eat thereof, then your eyes shall be opened, and ye shall be as gods, knowing good and evil.”

The entertainment industry also propagate these falsehoods from Babylon. The Catholic church established this doctrine.

Praying to the dead plays a major role in Catholicism, but the Bible warns everyone not to do this.

The Revelator says, “I saw another angel come down from heaven, having great power; and the earth was lightened with His glory. And he cried mightily with a strong voice, saying, Babylon the great is fallen, is fallen.” (Revelation 18:1, 2.) This is the same message that was given by the second angel,–Babylon is fallen, “because she made all nations drink of the wine of the wrath of her fornication.” (Revelation 14:8.) What is that wine?–Her false doctrines. She has given to the world a false sabbath instead of the Sabbath of the fourth commandment, and has repeated the lie Satan first told to Eve in Eden,–the natural immortality of the soul. Many kindred errors she has spread far and wide, “teaching for doctrines the commandments of men.” {1888 725.1}

When Jesus began His public ministry, He cleansed the temple from its sacrilegious profanation. Almost the last act of His ministry was to cleanse the temple again. So in the last work for the warning of the world, two distinct calls are made to the churches; the second angel’s message, and the voice heard in heaven, “Come out of her, my people,…For her sins have reached unto heaven, and God hath remembered her iniquities.” (Revelation 18:4, 5.) {1888 725.2}

Infant Baptism

The Bible teaches that, a person must believe before he is baptized. Infants are clueless of the battle raging between evil and good, It is the doctrine of the “original sin” , harbored by the Mother of HARLOTS, that has given birth to this erroneous teaching(infant baptism).

There’s no original sin, and yes we are born with sinful nature, but we are not born with guiltiness of sin( That we need to be baptized as infants to be saved. It’s a lie!). Because you can be accountable only when you transgress the law( 1 John 3:4 ).

He that believeth and is baptized shall be saved; but he that believeth not shall be damned (Mark 16:16). Infants can not meet the conditions stated here.

Secret Rapture

The secret rapture is also a wine of Babylon we must vehemently avoid. The coming of Jesus won’t be secret, but very audible, Every eye shall see Him coming.

The above mentioned false doctrines and others are what God is warning His people to come out from, so that they would be saved.

“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.   5 For her sins have reached unto heaven, and God hath remembered her iniquities.” REVELATION 18:4-5

World Drunk With Wine of Babylon—God denounces Babylon “because she made all nations drink of the wine of the wrath of her fornication.” This means that she has disregarded the only commandment which points out the true God, and has torn down the Sabbath, God’s memorial of creation. 7BC 979.5

God made the world in six days and rested on the seventh, sanctifying this day, and setting it apart from all others as holy to Himself, to be observed by His people throughout their generations. 7BC 979.6

But the man of sin, exalting himself above God, sitting in the temple of God, and showing himself to be God, thought to change times and laws. This power, thinking to prove that it was not only equal to God, but above God, changed the rest day, placing the first day of the week where the seventh should be. And the Protestant world has taken this child of the papacy to be regarded as sacred. In the Word of God this is called her fornication. 7BC 979.7

God has a controversy with the churches of today. They are fulfilling the prophecy of John. “All nations have drunk of the wine of the wrath of her fornication.” They have divorced themselves from God by refusing to receive His sign. They have not the spirit of God’s true commandment-keeping people. And the people of the world, in giving their sanction to a false sabbath, and in trampling under their feet the Sabbath of the Lord, have drunk of the wine of the wrath of her fornication (Letter 98, 1900). 7BC 979.8

What Is the Mark of the Beast?—John was called to behold a people distinct from those who worship the beast and his image by keeping the first day of the week. The observance of this day is the mark of the beast (Letter 31, 1898). 7BC 979.11

(Exodus 31:13-17.) What Is God’s Sign?—The sign of obedience is the observance of the Sabbath of the fourth commandment. If men keep the fourth commandment, they will keep all the rest (Letter 31, 1898). 7BC
