What are the fruits of this world?
We have endless judgements.  Actors and comedians have become moral activists.  Fools cannot simply be fools.
Even youth prescribe morals, laws, principles and causes – because that is expected.
Social media activists abound – from all political persuasions. How will this help create our art?  It’s so hard to keep up with the endless chatter, opinions, and recommended 'charitable' works.
As our painted art becomes the ideal – the ‘moral height’ of who we are…
…we find that our art paints us.
Our canvas has become a mirror.  Our height of civilization is the pornography of our low point.  We are the Whore of Babylon.

Case Study: Babylon, the Art of the Whore – a Portrait in Flesh.

 
 

Job 37:18
   Hast thou with him spread out the sky, which is strong, and as a molten looking glass?

 
 

We have wisdom when we see ourselves as God sees us.
God sees his people as a woman, one woman, his bride.
Isaiah 54:6
   For the LORD hath called thee as a woman forsaken and grieved in spirit, and a wife of youth, when thou wast refused, saith thy God.

Hosea 2:20
   I will even betroth thee unto me in faithfulness: and thou shalt know the LORD.

Revelation 21:9
   Come hither, I will shew thee the bride, the Lamb's wife.

Our proper Church has repented of her old ‘good’ works – as God likens works to clothing.
We rip and remove our clothes to repent of our old ‘good’ works.
Lamentations 1:9
   Her filthiness is in her skirts; she remembereth not her last end;

Judges 11:35
   And it came to pass, when he saw her, that he rent his clothes, and said, Alas, my daughter! thou hast brought me very low…

1 Kings 21:27
   And it came to pass, when Ahab heard those words, that he rent his clothes, and put sackcloth upon his flesh, and fasted, and lay in sackcloth, and went softly.

1 Samuel 19:24
   And he stripped off his clothes also, and prophesied before Samuel in like manner, and lay down naked all that day and all that night. Wherefore they say, Is Saul also among the prophets?

Isaiah 64:6
   But we are all as an unclean thing, and all our righteous acts are as filthy rags;

Jude 1:23
   …hating even the garment spotted by the flesh.

 
     
 
Warning: Sort Of Safe for Work Images Below.
 
     
 

We wipe the canvas clean.  We start again.
John 3:7
   Marvel not that I said unto thee, Ye must be born again.

Titus 3:5
   Not by works of righteousness which we have done, but according to his mercy he saved us, by the washing of regeneration, and renewing of the Holy Ghost;

2 Corinthians 5:17
   Therefore if any man be in Christ, he is a new creature: old things are passed away; behold, all things are become new.

Since the bride is now new, she has no good works (clothing) acceptable to God yet.  She is nude.
Revelation 7:14
   These are they which came out of great tribulation, and have washed their robes, and made them white in the blood of the Lamb.

 
     
 

Bad news.  Our portrait just got censored.
Apparently, it’s something that we cannot even picture.
Something about modesty.
At minimum, we are to cover up certain parts of the woman pictured.
The theory is that, by covering up certain bits, we are better people morally.  Oh, modesty.



Anyway, our bride now has, at minimum, a bikini on.



Take a look at the bride of Christ now.  Our art portrays legs, torso, shoulders, arms, etc… but they are not linked to each other.
They are divided by that bikini.  But we have to at minimum cover up our woman with that bikini.  Those are the rules.

1 Corinthians 1:10
   Now I beseech you, brethren, by the name of our Lord Jesus Christ, that ye all speak the same thing, and that there be no divisions among you;

1 Corinthians 12:12-14
   For as the body is one, and hath many members, and all the members of that one body, being many, are one body: so also is Christ.
   For by one Spirit are we all baptized into one body, whether we be Jews or Gentiles, whether we be bond or free; and have been all made to drink into one Spirit.
   For the body is not one member, but many.

Our portrait no longer is of the linked body.
This is not going well.
Our portrait in flesh is now a divided body.  We have schisms, divisions.
1 Corinthians 12:25
   That there should be no schism in the body; but that the members should have the same care one for another.

1 Corinthians 11:18
   For first of all, when ye come together in the church, I hear that there be divisions among you; and I partly believe it.

In our portrait, is the Church one unified body?  No.
1 Corinthians 12:20,24
   But now are they many members, yet but one body...
   but God hath tempered the body together...

 
     
 

More censors have arrived.  Sorry, this is not going well.
They say that the bikini is not good enough.

Genesis 2:18,24-25
   And the LORD God said, It is not good that the man should be alone; I will make him an helper suitable for him.
   …and shall cleave unto his wife: and they shall be one flesh.
   And they were both naked, the man and his wife, and were not ashamed.

When God said that the world without the naked woman (Eve) was not good, apparently he was wrong… and that covering the woman up even more is now our moral good.



This is not going well.

 
     
 

The Apostle Paul’s epistle to the Galatians is the only church epistle of Paul that does not open by thanking God for the people to whom he was writing.
Paul was so upset by the Galatians that he launched immediately into his subject.  Was the sin of the Galatians fornication or drunkenness (as with other churches)?
No, the sin of the Galatians was legalism.
Legalism is the notion that adherence to rules will make you righteous in the eyes of God.
Faith towards Grace is counted as righteousness.
Rules have their place in life, but the only righteousness acceptable to God is our putting on that righteousness which is from God.  Adherence to rules will not make you righteous in the eyes of God.
To turn away from pursuing Christ (back to pursuing rules) indicates that you believe Christ’s sacrifice was not necessary.
Galatians 2:21
   I do not frustrate the grace of God: for if righteousness come by the law, then Christ is dead in vain.

Galatians 1:6
   I marvel that ye are so soon removed from him that called you into the grace of Christ unto another gospel

Under the New Covenant (Testament), with Christ, any standard of adherence to any rules as a means to achieve righteousness has been wiped away.
Romans 10:4
   For Christ is the end of the law for righteousness to every one that believeth.

Ephesians 2:15
   Having abolished in his flesh the enmity, even the law of commandments contained in ordinances; for to make in himself of twain one new man, so making peace;

 
     
 

John 8:32-36
   And ye shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you free.
   They answered him, We be Abraham's seed, and were never in bondage to any man: how sayest thou, Ye shall be made free?
   Jesus answered them, Verily, verily, I say unto you, Whosoever committeth sin is the servant of sin.
   And the servant abideth not in the house for ever: but the Son abideth ever.
   If the Son therefore shall make you free, ye shall be free indeed.

By being beyond The Law (as a means to achieve righteousness) married to Christ, you are truly free.  Sin and The Law do not reign over you.  (By committing one sin, you are guilty under The Law.)
James 2:10
   For whosoever shall keep the whole law, and yet offend in one point, he is guilty of all.

As your heart is pursuing the love of Christ, you are free to do as you like, as you fulfill The Law.
Romans 8:2,4-5
   For the law of the Spirit of life in Christ Jesus hath made me free from the law of sin and death…
   That the righteousness of the law might be fulfilled in us, who walk not after the flesh, but after the Spirit.
   For they that are after the flesh do mind the things of the flesh; but they that are after the Spirit the things of the Spirit.

Matthew 5:17
   Think not that I am come to destroy the law, or the prophets: I am not come to destroy, but to fulfil.

Matthew 22:37-40
   Jesus said unto him, Thou shalt love the Lord thy God with all thy heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy mind.
   This is the first and great commandment.
   And the second is like unto it, Thou shalt love thy neighbour as thyself.
   On these two commandments hang all the law and the prophets.

Be under the law of freedom.
James 2:12
   So speak ye, and so do, as they that shall be judged by the law of liberty.

Galatians 5:13
   For, brethren, ye have been called unto liberty; only use not liberty for an occasion to the flesh, but by love serve one another.

As servants of each other, we fulfil the New Covenant’s Law.
Galatians 6:2
   Bear ye one another's burdens, and so fulfil the law of Christ.

 
     
 

What would our world of liberty, freedom be like?
Gone would be the days of exploiting each other – selling others out.
Micah 7:2
   The good man is perished out of the earth: and there is none upright among men: they all lie in wait for blood; they hunt every man his brother with a net.

Under Christ as leader:
Micah 4:1-3
   But in the last days it shall come to pass, that the mountain of the house of the LORD shall be established in the top of the mountains, and it shall be exalted above the hills; and people shall flow unto it.
   And many nations shall come, and say, Come, and let us go up to the mountain of the LORD, and to the house of the God of Jacob; and he will teach us of his ways, and we will walk in his paths: for the law shall go forth of Zion, and the word of the LORD from Jerusalem.
   And he shall judge among many people, and rebuke strong nations afar off; and they shall beat their swords into plowshares, and their spears into pruninghooks: nation shall not lift up a sword against nation, neither shall they learn war any more.

No more war, but peace and abundance:
Joel 3:10-14,18
   Beat your plowshares into swords, and your pruninghooks into spears: let the weak say, I am strong.
   Assemble yourselves, and come, all ye heathen, and gather yourselves together round about: thither cause thy mighty ones to come down, O Lord.
   Let the heathen be wakened, and come up to the valley of Jehoshaphat: for there will I sit to judge all the heathen round about.
   Put ye in the sickle, for the harvest is ripe: come, get you down; for the press is full, the fats overflow; for their wickedness is great.
   Multitudes, multitudes in the valley of decision: for the day of the Lord is near in the valley of decision.
   …And it shall come to pass in that day, that the mountains shall drop down new wine, and the hills shall flow with milk, and all the rivers of Judah shall flow with waters, and a fountain shall come forth of the house of the Lord, and shall water the valley of Shittim.

 
     
 

With such freedom in Christ, we have the opportunity to fulfill our purpose of creating art for the Lord.
But our portrait in flesh is not going well.
The art of the woman should be our highest art, but instead it is our lowest art.
Our creativity has been stifled with rules, legalism – (not even rules from The Law – or anywhere in the Bible!)
Revelation 22:18
   If any man shall add unto these things, God shall add unto him the plagues that are written in this book

We have been told that we have to put the bikini on our bride.
We have been told that we have to cover up certain parts of her.
Our portrait in flesh, a mirror, illustrates divisions of the parts of the Church that should be linked.
A divided Church.

And rules that we impose limit Christ’s effectiveness in our lives.

Galatians 5:4
   Christ is become of no effect unto you, whosoever of you are justified by the law; ye are fallen from grace.

Psalm 78:41
   Yea, they turned back and tempted God, and limited the Holy One of Israel.

Genesis 18:13-14
   Wherefore did Sarah laugh, saying, Shall I of a surety bear a child, which am old?
   Is any thing too hard for the LORD?

Jeremiah 32:27
   Behold, I am the LORD, the God of all flesh: is there any thing too hard for me?

 
     
 

The physical manifestation of righteousness is beauty of all kinds.
Beauty is indistinguishable from righteousness.

Isaiah 4:2
   In that day shall the branch of the LORD be beautiful and glorious, and the fruit of the earth shall be excellent and comely for them that are escaped of Israel.

2 Chronicles 20:21
   …he appointed singers unto the LORD, and that should praise the beauty of holiness

And the glory of man is woman.  The glory of a man is his wife.
By western modesty standards, are you going to limit a man’s glory, by only allowing him to show his glory from the neck up (show only his wife’s face and hair – covering up the body)?
Is the beauty of woman only her face and her hair?
When a man can only show certain parts of his wife’s beauty – that limits his glory, and the glory/righteousness/beauty of Christ through him.
1 Corinthians 11:3,7-9
   But I would have you know, that the head of every man is Christ; and the head of the woman is the man; and the head of Christ is God…
   For a man indeed ought not to cover his head, forasmuch as he is the image and glory of God: but the woman is the glory of the man.
   For the man is not of the woman; but the woman of the man.
Neither was the man created for the woman; but the woman for the man.

 
     
 

A divided Church – one church adheres to some rules from The Law of Moses, and another church adheres to some man-made rules.  And another church has some rules from The Law of Moses and some man-made rules.
They cannot be united.
1 Corinthians 1:11
   For it hath been declared unto me of you, my brethren, by them which are of the house of Chloe, that there are contentions among you.

2 Corinthians 13:11
   Finally, brethren, farewell.  Be perfect, be of good comfort, be of one mind, live in peace; and the God of love and peace shall be with you.

Psalm 133:1
   Behold, how good and how pleasant it is for brethren to dwell together in unity!

Philippians 4:2
   I beseech Euodias, and beseech Syntyche, that they be of the same mind in the Lord.

Paul used his freedom to be all to preach Christ.
1 Corinthians 9:19-22
   For though I be free from all men, yet have I made myself servant unto all, that I might gain the more.
   And unto the Jews I became as a Jew, that I might gain the Jews; to them that are under the law, as under the law, that I might gain them that are under the law;
   To them that are without law, as without law, (being not without law to God, but under the law to Christ,) that I might gain them that are without law.
   To the weak became I as weak, that I might gain the weak: I am made all things to all men, that I might by all means save some.

If we continue without faith, but endlessly debate The Law and various rules, we fail.
Titus 3:9
   But avoid foolish questions, and genealogies, and contentions, and strivings about the law; for they are unprofitable and vain.

2 Timothy 2:23
   But foolish and unlearned questions avoid, knowing that they do gender strifes.

 
     
 

Oh, crap.
The critics are reviewing our portrait in flesh.
The criticise us day and night.
Revelation 12:9-10
   And the great dragon was cast out, that old serpent, called the Devil, and Satan, which deceiveth the whole world
   …for the accuser of our brethren is cast down, which accused them before our God day and night.

Isaiah 50:8-9
   He is near that justifieth me; who will contend with me? let us stand together: who is mine adversary? let him come near to me.
   Behold, the Lord GOD will help me; who is he that shall condemn me? lo, they all shall wax old as a garment; the moth shall eat them up.

Isaiah 54:17
   No weapon that is formed against thee shall prosper; and every tongue that shall rise against thee in judgment thou shalt condemn.  This is the heritage of the servants of the LORD, and their righteousness is of me, saith the LORD.

What is the response of the Church to the criticism – to the accuser?
The response is to be guilty, and then be busy, to do ‘good’ works.
Haggai 2:14
   Then answered Haggai, and said, So is this people, and so is this nation before me, saith the LORD; and so is every work of their hands; and that which they offer there is unclean.

Isaiah 1:13-14
   Bring no more vain oblations; incense is an abomination unto me; the new moons and sabbaths, the calling of assemblies, I cannot away with; it is iniquity, even the solemn meeting.
   Your new moons and your appointed feasts my soul hateth: they are a trouble unto me; I am weary to bear them.

 
     
 

As the Church responds to the critics, the accuser (guilt) – how is its own ‘good’ works reflected in our portrait in flesh?
We have to draw more and more clothing which are the works of the Church.
Notably, the works are not from God, but the Church’s own ‘good’ works.
Psalm 35:26
   …let them be clothed with shame and dishonour that magnify themselves against me.

Psalm 109:18-20
   As he clothed himself with cursing like as with his garment, so let it come into his bowels like water, and like oil into his bones.
   Let it be unto him as the garment which covereth him, and for a girdle wherewith he is girded continually.
   Let this be the reward of mine adversaries from the LORD, and of them that speak evil against my soul.

Our portrait in flesh, the bride of Christ, is cut off from Christ.
Good works come naturally after real faith, but these ‘good’ works cut us off from God.
These ‘good’ works break the hierarchy.
Ephesians 5:22-24
   Wives, submit yourselves unto your own husbands, as unto the Lord.
   For the husband is the head of the wife, even as Christ is the head of the church: and he is the saviour of the body.
   Therefore as the church is subject unto Christ, so let the wives be to their own husbands in every thing.

How?
When man faces woman to please her, he is not facing towards Christ.
Similarly, when woman turns away from pleasing man, she faces towards the world.
Both man and woman lose focus upwards towards Christ as their attitude is towards the world.
With our own ‘good’ works – our guilty response towards the accuser (who is of the world), we glorify ourselves.
Revelation 18:7
   How much she hath glorified herself, and lived deliciously, so much torment and sorrow give her: for she saith in her heart, I sit a queen, and am no widow, and shall see no sorrow.

Our guilt towards the accuser is gone!  But it has been replaced by pride and arrogance.
And the price is being cut off from God.

The Church, the glory of the world – that is, our depiction of the bride, has her own ‘good’ works – shown in our portrait in flesh as linen.
Revelation 18:16
   Alas, alas, that great city, that was clothed in fine linen, and purple, and scarlet, and decked with gold, and precious stones, and pearls!

It’s a counterfeit of the proper bride (who has works/clothing from God):
Revelation 19:8
   And to her was granted that she should be arrayed in fine linen, clean and white: for the fine linen is the righteous acts of saints.

Our portrait is no longer the woman as the glory of man – (and the glory of man was supposed to glorify Christ).
We can see this in a real and practical way – when women choose their own clothing.
We all wear clothing of our role.  We might have a store clerk’s outfit, if we work as a store clerk, or a police officer’s outfit, if we work as a police officer, or we might have an office style that we wear, for work in an office.
And, when we are off work, the weekend or a vacation, we wear the outfit that shows that.
When women no longer submit to their husband or their father, they chose their own role in life and their own clothing.  But this feminism is really the mirror of how we all rebel and choose our own role/clothing.
Our portrait in flesh has become more and more covered in her own ‘good’ works – which God likens to clothing.



But with the glory for herself (not glory going up the heirarchy), she is cut off from the hierarchy towards God: woman, man, Holy Spirit, Christ, God.
Red, purple, but no blue clothing:
Revelation 17:4
   And the woman was arrayed in purple and scarlet colour, and decked with gold and precious stones and pearls…

As she faces the world, the world will mourn her fall.
Revelation 18:9-11
   And the kings of the earth, who have committed fornication and lived deliciously with her, shall bewail her, and lament for her, when they shall see the smoke of her burning,
   Standing afar off for the fear of her torment, saying, Alas, alas, that great city Babylon, that mighty city! for in one hour is thy judgment come.
   And the merchants of the earth shall weep and mourn over her; for no man buyeth their merchandise any more

Guilt and going back to works of the flesh: rules, works by our own efforts – have caused the Church, our portrait in flesh, to accumulate clothing that does not glorify God, but clothes of our own ‘good’ works.
The result is our art.  It’s who we are.
Our portrait in flesh, the Church (which should have been God's people), is the Whore.
Revelation 17:15
   The waters which thou sawest, where the whore sitteth, are peoples, and multitudes, and nations, and tongues.

Revelation 18:23-24
   …for thy merchants were the great men of the earth; for by thy sorceries were all nations deceived.
   And in her was found the blood of prophets, and of saints, and of all that were slain upon the earth.

Revelation 3:4-5
   Thou hast a few names even in Sardis which have not defiled their garments; and they shall walk with me in white: for they are worthy.
   He that overcometh, the same shall be clothed in white raiment;

 
     
 

The Whore of Babylon is the Catholic Church’s exaltation of the false Virgin Mary – the archetype of female authority.
But the Whore of Bablyon is more than that.
This female authority – feminism – is a portrait of our relationship with God – a portrait in flesh.  God is to man as man is to woman.
1 Corinthians 11:3
   But I would have you know, that the head of every man is Christ; and the head of the woman is the man;

The Whore of Babylon is us.  She is our rebellion against God, as displayed in the mirror that is feminism, who we are.

The Whore of Babylon is not only Catholics, but also Anglicans, Mormons, Methodists, Orthodox, Lutherans, Baptists, Protestants, Buddhists, Muslims, Wiccans, Scientologists, Atheists, Agnostics – all.

Why is the Whore of Bablyon all people?
Because all have used the Word, and perverted the Word to construct ourselves in the body of a rebellious bride – what should have been the bride of Christ.

We all spoke our words in civilizations built by the Word – and disrepectfully used derivatives from the Word (such as contracts, manners, court law, family structure, notions of duty and truth) to build our temporary realities for our individual places in a temporary world that will rise and fall.

Revelation 18:4
   Come out of her, my people, that ye be not partakers of her sins, and that ye receive not of her plagues.
