Who Is This Mystery Babylon?

S. O. A. P. Here’s Your 90 second AM Devotional! S-cripture: Revelation 18:19 “They will throw dust on their heads, and with weeping and mourning cry out: ‘Woe! Woe to you, great city, where all who had ships on the sea became rich through her wealth! In one hour she has been brought to ruin!’” O-bservation: This event happens late in the seven-year tribulation period and just before Christ returns to the earth with the armies of heaven to defeat the Antichrist, the False Prophet, and the rulers of the earth.

While In Babylon

S. O. A. P. Here’s Your 90 second AM Devotional! S-cripture: Romans 13:2 Consequently, whoever rebels against the authority is rebelling against what God has instituted, and those who do so will bring judgment on themselves. O-bservation: Here, St. Paul lays down the Christian mandate for civilians who are “Followers Of Christ.” He says, “Obey Them!” Anything having to do with rebellion against them will only bring judgment on the believer.

Should we sing praise to the Lord when we’re sick? How about when we’re struggling financially? Should...

Babylon Thought They Won

S. O. A. P. Here’s Your 90 second AM Devotional! S-cripture: Ezekiel 31:2 Son of man, say to Pharaoh king of Egypt and to his hordes: “‘Who can be compared with you in majesty. O-bservation: God Almighty speaks through the Prophet Ezekiel to Pharaoh, the King of Egypt, and asks him, “Who can be compared to you?” He was setting Pharaoh up to let him know that He would bring Pharaoh down just like He had brought the Assyrians down. It happened at the hands of the Babylonians. A-pplication: Certainly, in that day and time Nebuchadnezzar was extremely proud when he destroyed the Assyrians and then the...

When It’s Time To Give Up And Get Outta There!

S. O. A. P. Here’s Your 90 second AM Devotional! S-cripture: Jeremiah 51:9a We would have healed Babylon, but she cannot be healed; let us leave her and each go to our own land. O-bservation: The land of Babylon had rejected the Lord so thoroughly that the people—neighboring friends and captive Israelis—knew there was nothing else they could do. They said, “We prayed that Babylon would be healed, but she can’t be healed. We’re heading back to our places of abode.” A-pplication: Through the years I’ve loved to fish. I’ve had many great fishing excursions. In fact, on one occasion the fish were biting and a storm...
