Ur…of Babylon?

A post on facebook today came across my wall that grabbed my attention. It was a link to an article entitled One World Church Expected This Year. Of course, I had to check it out. It had me going for awhile until I came across “an enthusiastic response from Mother Teresa”. Well, that slowed me down. Mother Teresa has been dead for awhile now. It took reading all the way down to the end of the article to find that the article was written in 1997.

While it is frustrating that people will post these kind of articles without verifying when they were actually written, they can be relevant to what is going on in the world today. Especially considering all the events happening, and the rapidity with which they are taking place. I would urge everyone to read this article because I do believe that there is a one-world religion being implemented, whether it is this year or five years from now. It is in the works.

Which leads me to something that caught my attention when I started reading this article. The name of this new one-world church that they want to institutionalize is called the United Religions Organization – the UR. They refer to this church as UR throughout the article. Well, UR brought to mind the name of the place that God called Abraham out of to bring him to the land that God had set aside for him and his descendants, the Israelites. So, I did a quick google search and came up with something interesting. It was a mere sentence in an article entitled Ur. “Ur became occupied by Babylonians…” Babylon was located only 140 miles from Ur, and Babylon had conquered Ur.

God brought Abram (Abraham) out of Ur, or rather Babylon, to the promised land. Ur was the principal center of worship of the Sumerian moon god Nanna and of his Babylonian equivalent Sin. Polytheistic worship was the norm there, but Abraham worshiped one god and that was Yahwah who we know as the one true God. Yahwah called him out of Ur/Babylon, symbolic of all the religions/gods of the world.

There has been a call for believers in Jesus (Yahushua) to come out of Babylon – the religious system operating in the world today. We are not to partake of the anti-christ’s miserable attempt at religion. We are to worship only one god and that is Yahwah (God).

Revelation 14:2-4
2And he cried mightily with a strong voice, saying, Babylon the great is fallen, is fallen, and is become the habitation of devils, and the hold of every foul spirit, and a cage of every unclean and hateful bird.

3For all nations have drunk of the wine of the wrath of her fornication, and the kings of the earth have committed fornication with her, and the merchants of the earth are waxed rich through the abundance of her delicacies.

4And 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.

For this new United Religions Organization to be referred to as UR is truly meaningful. Ur represented the church where Abraham worshiped God. Yet, Babylon conquered Ur and God called Abraham out of it.

We have come full circle. The U-R represents the churches in which many of us are worshipping the one true God, and yet spiritual Babylon is conquering the churches of today.

The call is being sounded. As God once called Abraham out of Babylon, He is now calling his remnant of faithful believers out of that same Babylon today.

Will you heed the call?

    Good evening. What an interesting initial; the UR. We are certainly heading into some troubling times and this is another piece of the puzzle. So many events are transpiring on a daily basis that one sturggles to keep on top of them all. To stay close to Jesus is imperative as he will sustain his elect; even in the most contrary of circumstances.

    I noticed that the previous post was to a writing by Richard Wurmbrand. I read this about four years ago and posted it on the old blog. It’s a very sobering message, and yet very needful as we may well be facing similar circumstances in the near future. The message is every bit as timely today as it was when it was first written.

    Thanks so much for the insights. Blessings always in Jesus name.

    Hi timbob,

    Actually, I found the Richard Wurmbrand writing on your old blog. It is very timely, and I feel that there are many who will end up experiencing this kind of persecution. Hopefully, this will somehow help someone else out there.

    Thanks for stopping by, and God bless you.

    You made a statement in your most recent post “Disgust” and it equally pertains to this “universal church”:

    “I refuse to unite my beliefs with those that are valueless and immoral”

    We see immorality running rampant in the churches of today. Churches who preach an incomplete gospel and who refuse to address the sin within its walls. This is not the church of Jesus and those who are His should in no way be uniting with it. 1 Corinthians 5:11 comes to mind.
