There are a dwelling for the devil and a dwelling for God. We must reflect back ourselves to check whether we stay in the home of God or in the home of the devil in order to get salvation. God prophesied the fall of Babylon the Great, a home for demons.
After this I saw another angel coming down from heaven. He had great authority, and the earth was illuminated by his splendor [It’s the light of the splendor of the Passover]. With a mighty voice he shouted: “Fallen! Fallen is Babylon the Great! She has become a home for demons and a haunt for every evil spirit, a haunt for every unclean and detestable bird. (Revelation 18:4)
Even the people of God cannot be saved if they remain in the spiritual Babylon. So, God said, “Come out of the spiritual Babylon, so that you will not share in her sins, so that you will not receive any of her plagues” (Revelation 18:4) Regarding the spiritual Babylon, the Apostle John wrote:
Men worshiped the dragon [that ancient serpent called the devil, or Satan (Rev 12:9)] because he had given authority to the beast, and they also worshiped the beast and asked, “Who is like the beast? Who can make war against him?” The beast [The spiritual Babylon] was given a mouth to utter proud words and blasphemies and to exercise his authority for forty-two months. He opened his mouth to blaspheme God, and to slander his name and his dwelling place and those who live in heaven [the saints]. He was given power to make war against the saints and to conquer them…. (Revelation 13:4-7)
The beast, which opposes God, is given authority from Satan and will blaspheme God, slander God’s name and wage war against the saints and to conquer them for forty-two months. The same prophecy was written in the book of Daniel.
The ten horns are ten kings [kingdoms] who will come from this kingdom. After them another king [a little horn] will arise, different from the earlier ones; he will subdue three kings. He will speak against the Most High [God] and oppress his saints and try to change the set times and the laws. The saints will be handed over to him for a time, times and half a time [footnote: for a year, two years and half a year]. (Daniel 7:24-25)
The little horn will speak against God and oppress God’s saints, and the saints will be handed over to time for a time, times and half a time [for a year, two years and half a year.] This little horn would have power for three and one-half years or 42 months. Therefore, the little horn in Daniel 7 is identical to the beast or the antichrist church in Revelation 13. The antichrist church is to try to change set times and the laws of God. In other words, the spiritual Babylon is to change the feasts and laws of God. According to this prophecy, the Sabbath day completely disappeared in 321 AD and the Passover was abolished in 325 AD. Instead, the false church adopted the Sunday Service and Christmas which originated from pagan customs of sun-god worship. For example, Christmas originated from a pagan festival for celebrating the birth of sun-god. (Please also see this page for the identity of the spiritual Babylon.)
Then, where should we go to? We must flee to the dwelling for God.
For the LORD has chosen Zion, he has desired it [Zion] for his dwelling. This is my resting place for ever and ever (Palms 132:13-14)
God designated Zion as his dwelling place. Therefore, we should come out of the spiritual Babylon and flee to Zion.
“Announce in Judah and proclaim in Jerusalem and say: ‘Sound the trumpet throughout the land!’ Cry aloud and say: ‘Gather together! Let us flee to the fortified cities!’ Raise the signal to go to Zion! Flee for safety without delay! For I am bringing disaster from the north, even terrible destruction.” (Jeremiah 4:5-6)
Zion is where God’s feasts are observed. Sunday, Christmas, Easter, the Thanksgiving day… All these are man-made rules, not God’s feasts. God’s feasts include the Passover of the New Covenant and the seventh-day Sabbath. And God bestows His blessing, even eternal life in Zion.
It is as if the dew of Hermon were falling on Mount Zion. For there [From Zion] the LORD bestows his blessing, even life forevermore [eternal life]. (Psalms 133:3)
We should seek and dwell in Zion where God’s feasts are celebrated in order to get eternal life. Today, the only church that celebrates the feasts of the New Covenant is the World Mission Society Church of God (WMSCOG.) The Church of God celebrates the Passover and the Sabbath day according to the teachings of Jesus. Moreover, you can meet Christ Ahnsahnghong who restored the New Covenant if you come to the World Mission Society Church of God. Please knock on the door of Zion to find God who dwells there and to get eternal life.
