And I heard another voice from heaven, saying, Come out of her, my people, that ye be not partakers of her sins, and that ye receive not of her plagues. Revelation 18:4.
In the last work for the warning of the world, two distinct calls are made to the churches. The second angel’s message is, “Babylon is fallen, is fallen, that great city, because she made all nations drink of the wine of the wrath of her fornication.” And in the loud cry of the third angel’s message a voice is heard from heaven saying, “Come out of her, my people, that ye be not partakers of her sins, and that ye receive not of her plagues. For her sins have reached unto heaven, and God hath remembered her iniquities.”
As God called the children of Israel out of Egypt, that they might keep His Sabbath, so He calls His people out of Babylon, that they may not worship the beast or his image. . . .
After the truth has been proclaimed as a witness to all nations, every conceivable power of evil will be set in operation, and minds will be confused by many voices crying, “Lo, here is Christ, Lo, He is there. This is the truth, I have the message from God, He has sent me with great light.” Then there will be a removing of the landmarks, and an attempt to tear down the pillars of our faith. A more decided effort will be made to exalt the false sabbath, and to cast contempt upon God Himself by supplanting the day He has blessed and sanctified. This false sabbath is to be enforced by an oppressive law. . . . But while Satan works with his lying wonders, the time will be fulfilled foretold in the Revelation, and the mighty angel that shall lighten the earth with his glory, will proclaim the fall of Babylon, and call upon God’s people to forsake her.
When do her sins reach unto heaven? When the law of God is finally made void by legislation. Then the extremity of God’s people is His opportunity to show who is the governor of heaven and earth. As a Satanic power is stirring up the elements from beneath, God will send light and power to His people, that the message of truth may be proclaimed to all the world.

Prayer Requests
—–Please keep me and my family in earnest prayer for the next 24 hours. Wisdom is vital. Nicole
—–Here are some prayer requests that were sent in to the NAD prayer line. Diane
Our friend’s son that has Leukemia is request prayers and positivity for him because he has another chemo treatment at noon today.  He had an allergic reaction to the IV, so they will be doing shots in his leg. She is asking for prayers that he tolerates the shots well & that he doesn’t have an allergic reaction to this drug, which he really needs, & no more reactions to any other drug!!!
My daughter, just texted that she has lost 16 pounds in 14 days. She has had the flu recently along with a severe ear infection. The infection is gone, but she can’t hear out of that ear, and is having double vision in the eye on the same side. She’s dizzy and also has no range of motion in her neck and is in a lot of pain. Since she has a 2-1/2 year-old, plus 5-month-old twins, she really needs healing. She can’t drive.  She went to the ER a couple days ago where they did a CT scan which showed nothing but a sinus infection. They told her if she wasn’t better by today she should see a neurologist and get an MRI, and possibly a spinal tap. Unfortunately, she is worse.
Dear Friends, 
When my mother and her sister, Joyce, who was four years younger, were children, they used to wait for the ice man to stop by. In those days people still had ice boxes instead of refrigerators and it was common for children to look forward to the ice man’s visit. As the wagon would pull up in front, they were right there to get their treat. The ice man would always take a pick and chop off a small piece of ice for each of them. They would enjoy its coldness on a hot summer day.
One day Joyce was walking past the fire station. On the ground was a small chunk of ice. Joyce stopped and looked at it. As this ice melted in the summer sun, it gave off a cloud of vapor. Joyce was fascinated.  She had never seen ice quite like this before.  One of the firemen, winking at the others, asked, “Would you like that piece of ice?”
Joyce was very happy and quickly picked it up and licked it. As soon as her tongue made contact with that dry ice, it stuck fast. Frightened, the child pulled and pulled. She couldn’t get free. What terrible pain!  She looked at the men for help, but they were laughing heartily.  What a cruel trick to play on an innocent child.
Joyce ran home to her mother, who managed to remove that frozen carbon dioxide from her tongue.  However, part of the surface of her tongue stayed on that offending ice. Poor Joyce spent many days in pain. My grandmother was livid with rage and stomped down to that fire station and let those men know in no uncertain terms how cruel they were.
How often others urge us to try something “just once.” The sinful practice looks harmless and attractive to us just as that dry ice looked like regular ice to my aunt so long ago. Soon, we are convinced that it is safe to “lick” it just once, but that “just once” can start us on a lifetime of bondage. That “just once” becomes a strong enemy.  That “just once” can cause excruciating pain and bring ruin to our lives. We look to our “friends” for help, but they cannot help us, they are amused at our suffering or they are as bound as we are and as helpless to overcome.
 How vital to our present and future happiness that we shut our ears to the enemy or his agents whispered temptations.  How important to daily pray, “Set a watch, O LORD, before my mouth; keep the door of my lips. Incline not my heart to any evil thing, to practice wicked works with men that work iniquity: and let me not eat of their dainties.”  Ps 141:3,4  We must do as Paul advises, “flee from idolatry.” “Flee fornication.” “Submit yourselves therefore to God. Resist the devil, and he will flee from you. Draw nigh to God, and he will draw nigh to you. Cleanse your hands, ye sinners; and purify your hearts, ye double minded. Be afflicted, and mourn, and weep: let your laughter be turned to mourning, and your joy to heaviness. Humble yourselves in the sight of the Lord, and he shall lift you up;” “follow after righteousness, godliness, faith, love, patience, meekness. Fight the good fight of faith, lay hold on eternal life, whereunto thou art also called.” 1 Cor 10:14; 6:18; James 4:7-101 Tim 6:11.12
May we come to our Great Deliverer and pray as did David, “Deliver me, O LORD, from mine enemies: I flee unto thee to hide me. 0 Teach me to do thy will; for thou art my God: thy spirit is good; lead me into the land of uprightness. Quicken me, O LORD, for thy name’s sake: for thy righteousness’ sake bring my soul out of trouble. Ps 143:9-11 “Have mercy upon me, O God, according to thy lovingkindness: according unto the multitude of thy tender mercies blot out my transgressions. Wash me thoroughly from mine iniquity, and cleanse me from my sin. For I acknowledge my transgressions: and my sin is ever before me. Against thee, thee only, have I sinned, and done this evil in thy sight….Behold, thou desirest truth in the inward parts: and in the hidden part thou shalt make me to know wisdom. Purge me with hyssop, and I shall be clean: wash me, and I shall be whiter than snow….Hide thy face from my sins, and blot out all mine iniquities. Create in me a clean heart, O God; and renew a right spirit within me. Cast me not away from thy presence; and take not thy holy spirit from me. Restore unto me the joy of thy salvation; and uphold me with thy free spirit. Then will I teach transgressors thy ways; and sinners shall be converted unto thee. Deliver me from blood guiltiness, O God, thou God of my salvation: and my tongue shall sing aloud of thy righteousness. O Lord, open thou my lips; and my mouth shall show forth thy praise. For thou desirest not sacrifice; else would I give it: thou delightest not in burnt offering. The sacrifices of God are a broken spirit: a broken and a contrite heart, O God, thou wilt not despise….” Ps 51  May we daily open our heart’s door to Him that He may keep us from falling.  (Rev 3:18-21; Jude 24)  May we allow Him not only to cleanse us from all sin, but to allow Him to lead us all the way to His Glorious Kingdom  where there will be no tempters or temptations is my prayer.
