Oh Lord, I pray that people will be drawn to what Your Words have said in scripture and are still teaching us each day, as we read them. I know that as we read the Bible daily, will we understand Your thoughts and desires towards mankind. We will also learn how to walk in Your light and not be deceived by the things of this world. Even what we have been taught over the centuries can be unlearned as the Holy Spirit teaches us the truth. I know how much better it is to be led by You and not man, for Your ways lead to eternal life and nobody else can do this. No doctrine of men will ever lead me to know You better, but only detract from knowing You and lead me on the path of destruction. I never want anything that adds to or removes from Your words to be a part of my faith in You, oh God. So may my worship, that I give to You always be pleasing in Your sight. I pray that I will always offer the best sacrifices and offerings to Your great Name. Help me to understand what is wrong., that I may fight against it and not join in. I know that I cannot win the battle over Satan without You in my life. I need You to strengthen me daily as I go walk through this life, as I cannot go through it on my own and be successfully. With clarity of mind, which You give, I will see the battle that is waging before me and fight for Your cause for victory. I know that this means giving up my own thoughts and beliefs for Your cause, but I know it is important. If I am ever out of line with Your will, please correct me and pierce my heart, that I may repent and come back into Your loving arms once again. It is Your ways that I am for, so lead me every hour. I need You Lord. Help me along the way. You are my Father and my great God, whom I serve. I love You. Amen.

4 And the woman was arrayed in purple and scarlet colour, and decked with gold and precious stones and pearls, having a golden cup in her hand full of abominations and filthiness of her fornication:
5 And upon her forehead was a name written, Mystery, Babylon The Great, The Mother Of Harlots And Abominations Of The Earth.
6 And I saw the woman drunken with the blood of the saints, and with the blood of the martyrs of Jesus: and when I saw her, I wondered with great admiration.
As we give ourselves over to Jesus, even our beliefs are formed according to His Word. Then, our actions become in line with His good works.
May every person that has faith in Christ also have a desire to search the scriptures and be willing to change their thoughts and desires according to God's will.
In this vision, John could see that judgement was poured out upon this woman in purple and scarlet, of which sat upon a scarlet beast. Continue Reading
