Get Thee out of Babylon!

Get thee out of Babylon!
pleasures of living
materials shackle us
from head to foot
fool’s gold
of lust lays on
our flesh
to compromise

Get Thee out of Babylon!
eyes plucked out by Greed!
we are the foundation
of Laodicea,
stone by stone
we have built
contemptuous idols
wrought in the Blood
of the innocent!
what manner of Righteousness
do we wear?
Know ye not though art
wretched! miserable! poor!
blind! naked!

Get thee out of Babylon!
come to the House of the Lord
where the Doors are marked
with His Precious Blood
inside the Ark
where we live out
the Covenant of Holy God
we have fled

Get thee out of Babylon!
where mammon consumes
the strongest of virtues
umbilical cords of vice
wrap seductively around
our tender necks
until they have enslaved

Get thee out of Babylon!
servants of the Most High
run to the mountains!
leave behind your outer
garment as Joseph did
follow the saints through
the narrowest of paths
with only your faith
in The Most High
the Shed Blood of The Lamb

Artist's Description

We need to flee, fly into the Arms of Jesus for safety when the calamity begins to fall.
Laodicea in reference to the churches in Revelation (Revelation 3:14)
To LAODICEA!

“I know your works, that you are neither cold nor hot. I could wish you were cold or hot.
So then, because you are lukewarm, and neither cold nor hot, I will vomit you out of My Mouth.
“Because you say, "I am rich, have become wealthy, and have need of nothing’-and do not know that you are wretched, miserable, poor, blind and naked-
“I counsel you to buy from Me gold refined in the fire, that you may be rich, and white garments that you may be clothed that the shame of your nakedness may not be revealed; and anoint your eyes with eye salve that you may see.”

“As many as I love, I rebuke and chasten. Therefore be zealous and repent.”
“Behold, I stand at the door and knock. If anyone hears My Voice and opens the door, I will come in to him and dine with him, and he with Me.” (Revelation 3:15-20)
