The Spirit of Babylon
"Woe! Woe to her who proclaims her divine favor but defies the Lord! Woe to her who declares blessings for herself and declares that she earned them with her righteousness! Woe to her who boasts that the Lord has supernaturally established her and vindicated her ways! Woe to her who masquerades as an angel of light, but brings darkness to those who do not submit to her!
"Look, My people, and see! Do not discern by appearance and the profession of faith, but instead discern by My Spirit, and let a profession of faith be proved true by actions of agape love.
"Babylon's profession of faith appears as light, and her power appears to be mighty. Her appearance will seem miraculous. But her hands will be dark, stained with blood. Her mouth will speak words of prophecy, the supernatural, power, might, and the dominion of God. But the means she uses will involve compromise and confusion of My agape love, and in her teaching she will deny the Savior by proclaiming her knowledge as a tower to reach the blessing and favor of the Lord.
"Behold, the harlot Babylon! Behold, the false prophet! Behold, the beast who arises from the land! Behold, the man of lawlessness! Behold, the antichrist! Behold, the movement of false prophets and teachers! Behold, the first rider who sets out from among My people to conquer and brings all manner of destruction in his wake! Behold, the rider who judges unjustly and wages war in unrighteousness! Behold, the woman who has turned away from her first love to worship the glory of the beast whose re-appearance astonished the world! Behold, the rebellion!"
