God the Father is raging mad in Ezekiel chapter 22. Verse 25 is so controversial, the dispensationalist commentator of my KJV Holman Study Bible didn’t even address it in their commentary. In 539 B.C. Babylon, the church’s leaders, priests, prophets and people had become so evil, God could not find even one man among them who is righteous. History will repeat itself.
The prophet Ezekiel penned the book of Ezekiel in the city of Babylon shortly after God called Him in 593 B.C. We know that in the bible, the old testament/old covenant is a foreshadow of the new testament/new covenant (Colossians 2:17).
We are seeing Ezekiel 22 happening today in Mystery Babylon… it is the Falling Away spoken of in 2 Thessalonians 2:3 — it is Roman false Christianity which has taken control of the top tier of all religious denominations (proof here) and its ways have trickled down to the individual members.
This article will be covering Ezekiel 22:17-31. KJV scripture will be in bold; commentary will follow in non-bold. The commentary will focus on how old testament Babylon relates to today’s Mystery Babylon.
Note: The italicized words in the KJV bible denote words that were not found in the original Hebrew and Greek texts.
Ezekiel Chapter 22:
17 And the word of the Lord came unto me, saying,
18 Son of man, the house of Israel is to me become dross:
“Son of man” refers to human beings (“sons of God” refers to spiritual beings/angels). God is speaking here to Ezekiel.
The fallen house of Israel in old testament times symbolizes all people of today who proclaim to be Christian, but are knowingly or unknowingly practicing false Christianity. Unknowingly practicing false Christianity happens due to a lack of knowledge/not knowing God’s Word (Hosea 4:6).
Dross is the scum or waste matter of metals, such as rust formed by oxidation. It is thrown off in the process of melting in a refining fire.
all they are brass, and tin, and iron, and lead, in the midst of the furnace; they are even the dross of silver.
God sees false Christians not as fine gems, not even as common metals, but as nothing more than the impure waste off of refined metals.
19 Therefore thus saith the Lord God; Because ye are all become dross, behold, therefore I will gather you into the midst of Jerusalem.
Present-day Jerusalem is a land forsaken and deserted by God (for details on this, see my article “God’s Chosen People”). This symbolizes God removing His protections from the false Christians and leaving them to be victims of deception and manipulation by others who are like them.
20 As they gather silver, and brass, and iron, and lead, and tin, into the midst of the furnace, to blow the fire upon it, to melt it; so will I gather you in mine anger and in my fury, and I will leave you there, and melt you.
These are fierce words from God. As false Christians gather their worldly belongings and wealth and work them for their purposes, making themselves a name (Genesis 11:4), God will likewise gather them for His purpose unto the place of His wrath, the lake of fire.
21 Yea, I will gather you, and blow upon you in the fire of my wrath, and ye shall be melted in the midst thereof.
22 As silver is melted in the midst of the furnace, so shall ye be melted in the midst thereof; and ye shall know that I the Lord have poured out my fury upon you.
“Vengeance is mine, I will repay,” says the Lord. ~Romans 12:19 (NKJV)
23 And the word of the Lord came unto me, saying,
24 Son of man, say unto her, Thou art the land that is not cleansed, nor rained upon in the day of indignation.
God’s human messengers, Ezekiel and those who are redeemed, are to warn the people of Babylon that they are unwashed and filthy, and their robes will not be found washed white by the blood of Jesus at the last day/Jesus’ Second Coming. They will suffer God’s wrath at the White Throne Judgment.
25 There is a conspiracy of her prophets in the midst thereof,
A combination of men who falsely claim to be receivers of God’s Holy Spirit, have entered into an agreement to commit to evil purposes; to maliciously twist the truths of God’s Word for their own evil agenda, and falsely accuse the innocent redeemed/Truth-tellers. They can be found in all local, county, state, and nation governments of the world, and they work in all branches of the worldly system — the media, health/medical, political, judicial/law enforcement, military, education, social services, religious and financial. Their greatest work is done in the church houses which has caused the falling away spoken of in 2 Thessalonians 2:3.
like a roaring lion ravening the prey; they have devoured souls;
These worldly oath-keeping false Christians have preyed on true Christians and deceived many into believing they are worshiping God and serving Jesus Christ, when in reality, they are just in a social club doing self-righteous, self-serving acts of kindness. They support the system of lies and oppression that their leaders create, then rush in like white knights to save the needy and afflicted.
they have taken the treasure and precious things; they have made her many widows in the midst thereof.
These false prophets and fake Christian influencers have replaced God and the Holy Spirit with the false prosperity doctrine and caused the redeemed to turn from the Lord. The widows are those who were once Jesus’ bride/those redeemed by His blood, but are now separated from Him. The false Christians will deceive the elect as we are told in Matthew 24:24.
26 Her priests have violated my law, and have profaned mine holy things:
The false Christian church leaders have spat on God’s commandments and have twisted His word and deceived His people.
they have put no difference between the holy and profane, neither have they shewed difference between the unclean and the clean,
Babylon teaches acceptance of the sin, such as homosexuality, pornography and pedophilia, under the guise of “love thy neighbor.” Murdering, cheating, lying, fornication, envy and pride all have a “proper place” in the life of a false Christian.
and have hid their eyes from my sabbaths, and I am profaned among them.
The false Christian church leaders have turned their focus away from the eternal Sabbath rest that comes with the washing of the blood of Jesus Christ and the indwelling of the Holy Spirit. They remember/mark His day of rest on Sunday, the day of worship to the sun god, instead of on Saturday the 7th day. They no longer recognize or teach spiritual communion with God and Jesus but have replaced it with the eating of bread and drinking juice, the reciting of phrases or poems, and other physical rituals (which means nothing of a spiritual nature to the false Christian but sure makes them feel righteous in their own eyes).
27 Her princes in the midst thereof are like wolves ravening the prey, to shed blood, and to destroy souls, to get dishonest gain.
Those held in high regard in Mystery Babylon lead God’s people away from Him by turning their focus onto the things of this world. They flood “Christians” with false acceptance, empty kindness, worldly distractions, and shrewd lies which slowly destroys them financially, mentally, physically and spiritually. They play favorites by supporting those who support their lying ways and severely oppressing and censoring the voices of the true Israel who speak God’s truth.
28 And her prophets have daubed them with untempered morter, seeing vanity, and divining lies unto them, saying, Thus saith the Lord God, when the Lord hath not spoken.
Daubed is defined as “smeared thickly.” Untemperance is a lack of moderation/excessive indulgences. “Morter” is a word not found in the original Hebrew text. The first phrase of the verse reads “Babylon’s false prophets have thickly smeared themselves and the people with the world’s excessive indulgences, encouraging a lack of moderation in living.”
Those false Christian leaders and prophets claim to speak words from God, but their words are lies of the world. They see vanity, or worldly works and prosperity, as being something of God that He desires us to have. The true Israel picks up and carries their cross daily (Luke 9:23). Our joy and contentment is in what Christ Jesus did for us, the unworthy (Galatians 6:14; 1 Corinthians 1:18).
“Unless the LORD builds the house, They labor in vain who build it; Unless the LORD guards the city, The watchman stays awake in vain” (Psalm 127:1). “It is easier for a camel to go through the eye of a needle, than for a rich man to enter the kingdom of God” (Matthew 19:24).
29 The people of the land have used oppression, and exercised robbery, and have vexed the poor and needy: yea, they have oppressed the stranger wrongfully.
Those in Mystery Babylon have stolen from the people and taxed them to death, creating the working poor and needy class whom they provoke, trouble, agitate and afflict with low salaries, high interest, and unaffordable necessities. They have created the beast system which entraps humanity and they use it to oppress and censor God’s people who are strangers to them. They show favoritism to those like them while oppressing and censoring those who have God’s truths written on the fleshy tables of their hearts (Jeremiah 31:33; Romans 2:15).
30 And I sought for a man among them, that should make up the hedge, and stand in the gap before me for the land, that I should not destroy it: but I found none.
When the Falling Away is complete, not one redeemed leader will be available to speak for the people — all those remaining will have been corrupted and will be participating in the antichrist system (is there ANY incorporated church house/religious denomination who is anti-injection of DNA-altering messenger RNA technology which will destroy God’s temple??). God’s true remnant has been oppressively silenced by the people of Mystery Babylon.
31 Therefore have I poured out mine indignation upon them; I have consumed them with the fire of my wrath: their own way have I recompensed upon their heads, saith the Lord God.
The fate of 539 B.C. Babylon will soon be the fate of Mystery Babylon (Revelation 17:17-18). There will not be another world kingdom after the evil powers-that-be collapse this current one — we are in the final kingdom of iron and clay (Daniel chapter 2).
Know Your Enemy
Mystery Babylon is Jesuit-controlled false Christianity, the Jews-who-are-not in Revelation 3:9, their branches of Freemasonry, Zionism and all secret societies, and their false gods — it is the false prophet system that runs the world making the rich richer and the poor poorer, and increasingly demonstrates its detestation and oppression of the true righteous Christians. Details on the antichrist agenda can be found in this article: Georgia Guidestones Destroyed – Who is Taking Down the U.S.?
We Have Been Deceived
Those who are controlling the “new world order” have made us believe that the book of Daniel was about our future. That has caused us to misunderstand Revelation which is why there are so many interpretations of it flying around out there. But worst of all, misunderstanding Daniel is denying the PROOFS of the deity of Jesus Christ. PLEASE LOOK INTO THIS. If you are one with eyes to see, it will clear up SO MUCH for you.

Rest in the salvation of Jesus Christ and the true word and doctrines of God so that you may be sealed/protected/strengthened during the time of tribulation that is about to befall the evil ones. Pray without ceasing (1 Thessalonians 5:17). Never be without your spiritual armor of God. Those who persevere and endure to the end shall be saved (Matthew 24:13). Maranatha/Come Lord Jesus!

Freemasonry is a Luciferian society, and many of it’s lower-degree masons (most of our law enforcement and many pastors in the U.S.) are unaware of the evil to which they have sworn an oath. They are the enforcers and gatekeepers of the antichrist beast system. God will not accept a sworn oath-keeper/idolater into His heavenly kingdom — read Matthew 5:33-37.
