Harlot - Mother Of The Abominations Of The Earth (MA07)

'Beginning of Sorrows - 1st 3 Seals'

Rev 17:4-5 The woman was arrayed in purple and scarlet, and adorned with gold and precious stones and pearls, having in her hand a golden cup full of abominations and the filthiness of her fornication. And on her forehead a name was written: MYSTERY, BABYLON THE GREAT, THE MOTHER OF HARLOTS AND OF THE ABOMINATIONS OF THE EARTH.

2Pet 2:1 But there were also false prophets among the people, even as there will be false teachers among you, who will secretly bring in destructive heresies, even denying the Lord who bought them, and bring on themselves swift destruction. And many will follow their destructive ways, because of whom the way of truth will be blasphemed. By covetousness they will exploit you with deceptive words; for a long time their judgment has not been idle, and their destruction does not slumber.

   Destructive Heresies from US

   Once saved always saved
Causes Christians to become worldly and living unholy lives. Heb 6:4-6 stated that all those who had lost their salvation cannot be saved again and with their names blotted out from the Book of Life (Rev 3:5, Rev 22:19)

   Jesus coming is imminent
Causes Christians to be unlearned and easily deceived in the last days. Hal Lindsey's book 'the last planet earth' was the best seller in 1970, proclaiming the heresy that Jesus can come anytime. This heresy was strengthened by the 'Left Behind' series. Rapture can only occur after the Great Tribulation (Mat 24:29-31; Nark 13:24-27; Luke 21:12-28; 2Thess 2:1-11).

   Witch-hunting for Sins of Old
Causes Christians to feel unsecure and condemned for their (unknown) sins before conversion were not forgiven (not confessed).

   Christians - demon possessed
Causes Christians to doubt their salvation and ability to serve God. Every Christian is the temple of God and cannot be defiled by demonic or evil spirits, otherwise he has lost his salvation.  (1Cor 3:16-17, 1Cor 6:19-20)

   Prosperity Gospel
Causes Christians to be worldly, covetous, carnal, selfish, unloving, etc.
Luke 16:15 For what is highly esteemed among men is an abomination in the sight of God."

   Observing Jewish Feasts
Causes Christians to be cursed for not being able to obey the laws (no temple of God) in Gal 2:10-13 

   Sodomite Bishops
Destroyed faith of many Christians, and leading them to commit the sin leading to death, an abomination.
Lev 18:22 You shall not lie with a male as with a woman. It is an abomination.
Rom 1:27 Likewise also the men, leaving the natural use of the woman, burned in their lust for one another, men with men committing what is shameful, and receiving in themselves the penalty of their error which was due.

   Touch not the Anointed
Causes Christians to accept even heresies and distorted truth.
Gal 1:8 But even if we, or an angel from heaven, preach any other gospel to you than what we have preached to you, let him be accursed.
Encourages leader to be carnal, worldly, covetous and heretic.
2Tim 4:3 For the time will come when they will not endure sound doctrine, but according to their own desires, because they have itching ears, they will heap up for themselves teachers, and they will turn their ears away from the truth, and be turned aside to fables.

   These so-called anointed false prophets and famous, rich and powerful servants of God (including televangelists mainly from US) are teaching these destructive heresies to extremely large congregations.
