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, and it is just about 100% complete. What happens after the Falling Away? The Son of perdition appears and then the Second Coming of Jesus Christ to destroy the evil on this cursed earth (and redeem His faithful church/His bride… Praise God!).
Be sure to see the end of this article, the section titled “Know Your Enemy,” for identification of the Antichrist and the False Prophet as prophesied in Revelation. Or see my article “Identification of Antichrist, False Prophet and Mystery Babylon” which covers two interpretations.
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 version 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 those 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, 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 will not be washed 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 falsely and maliciously attack the innocent redeemed. 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,
They teach 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. “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.
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 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 shortly after the son of perdition announces himself (Revelation 17:17-18). The birth pangs/sorrows are increasing at a rapid rate (Matthew 24:8).
Know Your Enemy
Mystery Babylon is Jesuit-controlled false Christianity, the Jews-that-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.
The whore in Revelation 17:1 is the woman in 17:3 which is Mystery Babylon in 17:5. She is also that great city which reigneth over the kings of the earth in 17:18. The Vatican with their Jesuit pope heads this circus through the use of their Zionist masonic societies and their false Christianity mask. They are the false prophet/second beast spoken of in Revelation 13:11-18. The Antichrist/first beast is described in Revelation 13:1-10.
Verse 17:17 says God will move them to give their kingdom over to the beast on which they ride in 17:3. That beast has 10 horns which are 10 kings who are going to be given power for a short time with the beast (verse 17:12). But then there is this: Verse 17:16 says these 10 kings HATE the whore/Mystery Babylon/false prophet system and will “make her naked (expose her), eat her flesh and burn her with fire (nukes?).” The hive minds running this plandemic and injection campaign and the entire world, are going to be destroyed by the beast’s kings to whom they give their kingdom to. haha (God laughs at them too and I can see why! – Psalm 37:13, Psalm 2:4, Proverbs 1:26.) The wisdom of man and serving the gods of money and power makes one stupid. These evil clowns are setting up their own deaths in this world and in the next.
The above explanation is one reason why I believe the beast is of middle-Eastern origin, a group of 10 middle-Eastern kings headed by the leader of the Islamic Caliphate or an individual from the modern-day Turkey/Iraq/Armenia area (see below for resources). I know the Adventists want the pope to be the antichrist, but the beast hates that Jesuit whore harlot and is going to take their entire false prophet Babylonian system down. Matthew 24:21 says it will be a time of turmoil like this world has NEVER seen, and we’ve already seen the Roman Catholic Church torture and murder millions of Christians in ancient Rome. This coming turmoil is going to be a non-stop middle-Eastern tornado on a global scale.
Interesting note #1: The current Caliph (head of the Islamic Caliphate) began his reign on the highest satanic holy day of the year, October 31 in the year 2019.
Interesting note #2: The U.S. (the masonic capitol of the Vatican city-nation of Mystery Babylon) once imprisoned the present head of the Islamic Caliphate, so guess who will be target #1. The U.S. is my earthly home and at the top of the list for destruction by the Antichrist, but my eyes are set on my eternal home and my trust is in my Father God and my Savior Jesus Christ.
The puffed-up prideful who are currently persecuting and oppressing humanity’s meek and humble will soon be destroyed by the beast system. But the Jesuit masonic false prophet and the middle-Eastern Antichrist beast system will be together again when God casts both into the lake of fire burning with brimstone (Revelation 19:20). Their god, Satan, will soon after join them (Revelation 20:10).
Isn’t God’s plan to bring His creation into fullness nothing short of amazing?! And He chose mankind to be the vessel for His Son and the blood that defeated sin and evil at the cross (Colossians 1:15-20). Incredible! All praise and glory to Father God!
Seek 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!
RE: The Jesuits, the evil “Society of Jesus”
Highly Recommended Article: “Who Are the Jesuits and Should You Be Concerned Today?” [Should the link go down, email me and I will send you a Word copy of the article.]
I cannot find a good video about the Jesuits, but I recommend this free book: The Jesuit Conspiracy: The Secret Plan of the Order by Jacopo Leone. The digital version can be downloaded in many forms here, or you may wish to purchase a paper copy from Amazon here.
RE: The Freemasons
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 an arm of the false prophet (with the Ashkenazi Jews being the other). God will not accept a sworn oath-keeper/idolater into His heavenly kingdom. I highly recommend the book The Guide for Ministry to Masons by David & Donna Carrico if you are a mason or know one.
RE: A Middle-Eastern Antichrist
Click here for a very detailed article explaining all the heads, horns, beasts and mountains in Revelation and connecting them to our past history. It also explains why the Antichrist is the head of the Islamic Caliphate. If the link goes down, email me and I will send you a Word copy of the article.
This is also another wonderful article on why the Antichrist comes from the middle-East but is not necessarily the head of the Islamic Caliphate: Five Reasons Why the Antichrist Will Come from the Middle-East. If this link should go down, email me and I’ll send you a Word copy of the article.
If you search for “List of Caliphs” on Wikipedia, you’ll find the current one (head of the Islamic Caliphate) at the bottom of the list. The photo of him on that page was taken while he was held prisoner by the U.S. during Obama’s presidency (there are only 2 photos that I can find of him anywhere online).
May your studies be enriching, prosperous, edifying and joyful as you delve into God’s Word and His perfect plan for His redeemed!
