The Golden Cup
Gen. James Green
“Babylon was a golden cup in the Lord's hand, making all the earth drunken. The nations drank of her wine; therefore the nations have gone mad” (Jer. 51:7, Amplified Bible [Amp.]).
“The woman was robed in purple and scarlet and bedecked with gold, precious stones, and pearls, [and she was] holding in her hand a golden cup full of the accursed offenses and the filth of her lewdness and vice” (Rev. 17:4, Amp.).
“Then another angel, a second, followed, declaring, Fallen, fallen is Babylon the great! She who made all nations drink of the [maddening] wine of her passionate unchastity [idolatry]” (Rev. 14:8, Amp.).
M EN WHO THINK that they are “wise” are, in reality, “stupid.” Power is the name of the game: nation against nation! From the very beginning of the recorded human race (according to the Holy Bible), man was pitted against man: “…And Cain rose up against Abel his brother, and killed him” (Gen. 4:8). From the first recorded murder until now (Jan. 2016), murder/killing has never stopped. The murder of Abel was merely between two brothers—now we have WHOLE nations at war with each other. Some believe it’s the beginning of WW3.
But there is one thing we’re not to lose sight of: GOD OVERSEES ALL THINGS BY HIS OMNIPRESENCE AND OMNISCIENCE. He has the power to act in any manner, by any means, when necessary (omnipotence). Nothing escapes His eye. Since God created man/women with a free-will, He gives them freedom, BUT can, at anytime, violate that freedom.
So, why does God allow wars, conspiracies, revolutions etc. that are literally all over the whole world? Ask Him!
JEREMIAH 51:7 calls Babylon a “golden cup in the Lord’s hand.” As we know the story, Israel rebelled against their God, thus causing God to react in anger (after many, many warnings by God’s prophets). In this case, Nebuchadrezzar, king of Babylon was called upon to PUNISH Israel. If it worked then, it still works today, with the exception that there were/are times when other nations rise up against others that God has not purposed, but allowed.
Jeremiah 50:25 tells us that: “The Lord has opened His armory, and has brought forth [the nations who UNKNOWINGLY are] the weapons of His indignation and wrath, forth the Lord God of hosts has a work to do in the land of the Chaldeans” (Amp.). So, nations can be manipulated by God unbeknownst to them.
I believe this is what is going on in the Middle East currently. Here in cpt. 50, Babylon is going to be punished by God through the Medes/Persians. Chapter 51:20 tells us that “You [Cyrus, later Persian king of conquered Babylon] are My battle axe or maul and weapon of war; for with you I break nations in pieces, and with you will I destroy kingdoms” (read vv. 21-24). The very great/power nation, Babylon, whom God said was “A GOLDEN CUP” in His hand, now is being destroyed by God’s “weapon of war,” Cyrus.
We go back to Jer. 43:10, we find God calling Nebuchadrezzar: “My servant [because he works for Me] and I [thru him] will set his throne upon those stones that I have hid…” God was going to use this king to smite both Egypt and Israel (Egypt=43:11-13; Israel 44:1=-30).
Get The Point?
SO, THE LORD GOD uses whatever/whomever He desires to accomplish His will.
You see, all this WAR-mongering done by the U.S.—to spread democracy (HA!)—is not going to go on forever. This political DECEIT is the direct result of the Church’s deceit—playing the WHORE on God, just as Israel played the WHORE. The Church tries to fool God by “acting” like a Christian, but in deed is more in line with Satan.
God said through Jeremiah: “…I sent to you all My servants the prophets earnestly and persistently, saying ‘Oh, do not do this loathsome and shamefully vile thing that I HATE and ABHOR!” (44:4). But Israel persisted in her idolatries and adulteries: “Therefore My wrath and My anger were poured out and were kindled in the cities of Judah…” (v. 6).
God has punished both His people and the pagan peoples because of their sins. Do you think this generation will go unpunished? America is already under His wrath.
The political/religious life of America is one Hell of A MESS—this is the direct result of her playing the WHORE on God.
Maniacs for maniacal ends
THE SPIRITUAL vibrational transformation caused by Churchianity/Babylon is now manifesting in the physical—America is a nation gone MAD. The nation that once was a light, has now become DARK!
All this “darkness” came about, not by accident, but by DESIGN.
The “forces” that hold this nation in satanic servitude (the hidden hands that manipulate) did not just push their way into the American life, NO! They were invited in by the people themselves. Sure, the “Shadow People” are real with real desires—to enslave the U.S. entirely!—but the Church laid aside its armor, put down its weapons, and made peace with the “force.”
WHY HAS “GREAT DARKNESS” covered this land? The BIG reason is that, as said beforehand, God’s people, at least those who claim to be His, have stopped fighting the good fight of faith (1 Tim. 6:12; there is a big difference in confession/profession and possession—the Church professes, but possesses little!). Even Jewish Albert Einstein had a better sense of this slavery/freedom idea than most Church leaders in this generation:
“The true value of a human being can be found in the degree to which he has attained liberation from the self.”
Make no mistake, our war manual—the Bible—tells us to:
“Mortify therefore your members which are upon the earth; fornication, uncleanness, inordinate affection, evil concupiscence, and covetousness, which is idolatry: for which things’ sake the wrath of God cometh on the children of disobedience” (Col. 3:5, 6). The Greek word “mortify,” nekroo (Strong’s G3499)—means to: “deaden, subdue, kill”—exactly opposite of what is being taught and practiced today in Babylon Churchianity. Is it any wonder that the spirit over this nation is murder—because it is attempting to kill the Spirit of God and the Church itself is dead to the Spirit of the Living God?...and America has exported this satanic spirit universally manifesting itself into literal warfare and apostasy.
That’s not all! The Bible also tells us that real/true Christians: “…have crucified the flesh (or self) with the affections (those mentioned in Col. 3:5, 6) and lusts” (Gal. 5:24). Gal. 5:16 plainly tells ALL believers to: “…walk in the (Holy) Spirit, and ye shall not fulfill the lust of the flesh (or self life that is contrary to God).”
This is not all. The Bible goes on to tell the believers that: “…the grace of God that bringeth salvation…teaching us that, denying ungodliness and worldly lusts, we SHOULD LIVE soberly righteously, and godly, IN THIS PRESENT world” (Titus 2:11, 12). But what we find is the exact opposite today. We find a “Babylon Jesus” at the head of the Church, instead of the “Biblical Jesus,” and this is universal. So, is it any wonder that nations are under false flag operations, lying deceits, and propaganda so deep that nations see no way out???
The Church has stopped fighting the enemies of Christ. Nations are lost because they see no rallying battle flag. What is in our face—the ISIS crisis—does not register in our minds. See, is something wrong? Nations are LOST because they have LOST their relationship with Christ. The “force” has supplied both Church and state with maps that lead AWAY from God and into Satan’s territory. And here we are!
THIS NATION IS LOST. Not because we don’t have a good map—pointing us in the right way—it is because we prefer the bad map that leads to destruction. So, here we are!
This is what ancient Israel did time and time again: they discarded THE WAY for ANOTHER WAY. They did not want to walk in the old paths of righteousness. Oh, no, they preferred the new paths of unrighteousness:
“Thus says the Lord: Stand by the roads and look; and ask for the eternal paths, where the good, old way is; then walk in it, and you will find rest for your souls. But they said, We will not walk in it!” (Jer. 6:16, Amp.).
What racial Israel did, spiritual Israel (the Church) is doing (with some exceptions, thank God). Einstein aptly said:
“A human being is a part of the whole, called by us Universe, a part limited in time and space. He experiences himself, his thoughts and feeling as something separated from the rest, a kind of optical delusion of his consciousness. This delusion is a kind of prison for us, restricting us to our personal desires and to affection...Our task must be to free ourselves from this prison.”
Schemes and Devices
JEREMIAH 6:19 says: “Hear, O earth; behold, I (God) am bringing evil upon this people (both Gentile nations and congregation of believing ones—v. 18), the fruit of their thoughts—their schemes and devices—because they have not listened and obeyed My Words, and as for My law, they have rejected it.” The “law” primarily means the ethical law, for ALL peoples of the earth are required to obey it—then, and now. God put a conscience within all men that can respond to this law if they so choose. Conscience allows comprehension of God’s moral/ethical laws—hence, to obey or disobey.
THIS SHOCKS many “Christians”—that God would reject His very own chosen people and choose pagans to do His will. Yet it is true. But when the time came, after He used Babylon to punish sinning Israel, He turned on Babylon.As Jeremiah 51:7 says: “Babylon hath (past) been a golden cup in the LORD’S hand…”—the world power from 605 till 539 BC. God’s Word proves who is in control, and who is controlled (for what reason and at what time).
“He made the earth by His power; He established the world by His wisdom and stretched out the heavens by His understanding. When He utters His voice, there is a tumult of waters in the heavens, and He causes the vapors to ascend from the ends of the earth. He makes lightnings for the rain and brings forth the wind from His treasuries” (Jer. 51:15 and 16, Amp).
God and God alone was and is the majestic Creator and controller of the universe. He has a possession-relationship with individuals and nations.
You see, even though God used Babylon to punish, their punishment went beyond His intention: “Thus says the Lord of hosts: The children of Israel and the children of Judah are oppressed together; all who took them captive have held them fast, they refuse to LET THEM GO.” So, God, “Their Redeemer…He will surely and thoroughly plead their cause, that He may give rest to [the land of Palestine, and to the Babylonian-enslaved nations of] the earth, but unrest to…Babylon” (Jer. 50:33, 34, Amp.).
Mad With Power!
AH! THIS DEMON has possessed multitudes thru the centuries; now it possesses prez Obama: MAD with demanding Americans to sacrifice their children to the idol of SEX—GLBTQ sex; demanding us to embrace Islam as a “peaceful” religion (WHILE IT IS A HATEFUL AND BLOODY RELIGION AND WAY OF LIFE); sacrifice the unborn at the altar of sexual freedom; and sacrifice more sovereignty and freedom in the name of Political Correctness etc. etc. The list is long and ugly…all so the “shadow force” can walk freely towards global dictatorship.
Assyria: Rod of Anger
AS BABYLON was a gold cup in God’s hand, so was Assyria: “…the rod of My anger, the staff in whose hand is My indignation and fury [against Israel’s disobedience]” (Isa. 10:5; Assyria captured the 10 northern tribes of Israel). But the king, MAD with success, boasted in his pride: “…I have done it solely by the power of my own hand and wisdom, for I have insight and understanding; I have removed the boundaries of the people and have robbed their treasures, and like a bull I have brought down those who sat on thrones, and the inhabitants” (Isa. 10:13).
Well, the Lord—who is ALWAYS in control—hath said: “Shall the ax (weapon) boast itself against him (God) who chops with it…?” (v. 15). God lets this braggart know that it was not his power, but God’s use of his power to punish Israel. Now, he will be punished: “The Lord will consume the glory of the (Assyrian’s) forest and of his fruitful field, both soul and body, and it shall be as when a sick man pines away or a standard-bearer faints” (v. 18).
You see, the king and His army were not aware that they were being used by God:
“However, this is not his intention [nor is the Assyrian aware that he is doing this at My bidding], neither does his mind so think and plan; but it is in his mind to destroy and cut off many nations” (v. 7, Amp.).
And may I add that Obama—certainly PAGAN—is not aware that he is being used by God to punish this backslidden nation called Amerika. This people have gone away backwards…the Church leading the crowd. But, Obama thinks he is under the command of the Zionist Jews/Illuminati networks, and he is, yet God even controls the said forces…all this is being done in order that America will REPENT! Obama is a classically corrupt makn-chancer spawned by and for the “force” (for your information, Zbigniew Bnzezinski [Zionist Jew] and an Illuminati operative was/is Obama’s mentor. Brzezmski’s aim is to create a world Government central bank, currency and private army—i.e., a global DICTATORSHIP. One needs to read his sinister books. Associating with Brzezinski is the sick Zionist Jew, George Soros: rich, powerful, ugly [and might I add, demonic]! Both make sure homosexual/bisexual Obama walks the line. Obama and political gangsters are mere prostitutes for the pimps called handlers.
America Loves Her Freedom!
SURE THEY DO. So did Israel. However, unchecked freedom causes slavery—so America is ENSLAVED, and loves it so. Does she really know this? Some do; most do not. But even if all knew this, would they wish to be freed by God? Voltaire once wrote: “Man is free the moment he wishes to be.” Well, that may not work exactly the way he believed it. The only way America will be free is to become a captive of Christ. But even if man is enslaved by a corrupt government, we can still be free within if we stand fast on God’s Word.
