To add a brief thought on this topic,
The context in which “all” and “whole world” are mentioned as being loved obviously didn't include Esau and the tares of the field mentioned in Matt. 13.

In reading in Jerimaiah 29, I think it can be seen how God orchestrated His will for all the remnant of Israel.

Thanks for your thoughts John,
I am not sure how much longer this particular story will be available to post on but I do not mind sharing but at the present time my schedule is a bit hectic. When time permits and a new story comes along to comment on that relates, perhaps I will then be in a better position to further the dialogue. In the mean time, I think digging into this verse and its context, apart from a strict literal hermeneutic, can be a start.

Jer 51:7 Babylon hath been a golden cup in the LORD'S hand, that made all the earth drunken: the nations have drunken of her wine; therefore the nations are mad.

Blessings to you!

I will admit this is a difficult topic to openly discuss. It is understandable how many are locked into the traditional teaching of the congregation they regularly attend regarding this topic or watched the Left behind movies or some other material someone wrote.
The problem is that many try to interpret the Revelation as a stand alone book, severed from the Scripture that precedes it when there is Scripture that can and does help lead in the unknowns by looking back into the prophets and even many of the NT writings for citations as there are many examples of the same Scriptural figures discussed there which are also mentioned in the Revelation. While I do not believe Mystery Babylon is Rome, I do believe the RC machine did pick up where she left off and patterned itself after the great lie of Works + Faith.

Thanks for the encouragement.

Jer 51:2 And will send unto Babylon fanners, that shall fan her, and shall empty her land: for in the day of trouble they shall be against her round about.

The her is Babylon. In trying to understand what this specific group would fan Babylon with, I came across this.

Isa 41:16 Thou shalt fan them, and the wind shall carry them away, and the whirlwind shall scatter them: and thou shalt rejoice in the LORD, and shalt glory in the Holy One of Israel.

Isa 41:27 ....I will give to Jerusalem one that bringeth good tidings.

Could that One that God promised to bring Good tidings be Paul as He cited this verse in Isaiah...

Isa 52:7 How beautiful upon the mountains are the feet of him that bringeth good tidings, that publisheth peace; that bringeth good tidings of good, that publisheth salvation; that saith unto Zion, Thy God reigneth!

Here:

Rom. 10:15 And how shall they preach, except they be sent? as it is written, How beautiful are the feet of them that preach the gospel of peace, and bring glad tidings of good things!

Jer 51:7 Babylon hath been a golden cup in the LORD'S hand, that made all the earth drunken: the nations have drunken of her wine; therefore the nations are mad.

Only other mention of golden cup(Rev 17:4)

Where is compare spiritual things with other spiritual things? Isn't that what Paul was speaking to when he wrote 1 Cor 2 in his defense against the rulers he formerly had been part of?

Isaiah 41:15
Behold, I will make thee a new sharp threshing instrument having teeth: thou shalt thresh the mountains, and beat them small, and shalt make the hills as chaff.

Tares(Chaff) are defined in Matt. 13:38 for us where Jesus explains the parable.

The mountains are the high places (91 times in KJV) aka the mountains of Israel (27 mentions) and 7 mountains (Rev 17:9). I believe they all refer to the works of the law....... the works of their own hands which they worshipped in place of trusting God.
Same old faith + work = justification lie perpetuated to this day by the RCC.
They are called a destroying mountain here as their teaching(error of faith + works, tradition), was responsible for destroying the earth(His people)and corrupting the truth which they were given and held charge to teach His people.
Babylon was the destroying mountain

And I will render unto Babylon and to all the inhabitants of Chaldea all their evil that they have done in Zion...
Behold, I am against thee, O destroying mountain, saith the LORD, which destroyest all the earth: and I will stretch

Rnel,
I did a short search and found a few I thought I'd share.

Ezek 16:2 Son of man, cause Jerusalem to know her abominations,

Ezek 16:30-32 How weak is thine heart, saith the Lord GOD, seeing thou doest all these things, the work of an imperious whorish woman; In that thou buildest thine eminent place in the head of every way, and makest thine high place in every street; and hast not been as an harlot, in that thou scornest hire; But as a wife that committeth adultery, which taketh strangers instead of her husband!

Ezek 16:38 And I will judge thee, as women that break wedlock and shed blood are judged; and I will give thee blood in fury and jealousy.

A jealousy which can be tied back to the song of Moses:

Deut 32:21 They have moved me to jealousy with that which is not God; they have provoked me to anger with their vanities: and I will move them to jealousy with those which are not a people; I will provoke them to anger with a foolish nation.

Those who were not a people, a foolish nation, the Gentiles to whom God turned to in mercy beginning with Paul(1 Tim. 1:16, Acts 13:47).

Hi James, I'm not sure what point you are making, but the portion of scripture you mentioned involves chastisement and restitution.
Isaiah 1:27 KJV
(27)  Zion shall be redeemed with judgment, and her converts with righteousness.
Hey John,
Thanks for the kind reply. There is also destruction mentioned as well.

Is 1:27-28 Zion shall be redeemed with judgment, and her converts with righteousness. And the destruction of the transgressors and of the sinners shall be together, and they that forsake the LORD shall be consumed.

I was just saying there were some good points were raised by Rnel.

The terms "whore" and "harlot" are mentioned some 50 times in the Bible.
I think the context defines who the whores and harlots are for us and should be the means to get the truth.

I don't have time to continue on so I'll leave it here.
Thanks for the brief exchange.

I think Rnel has some good questions.

I will add one more...

Is 1:21 How is the faithful city become an harlot! it was full of judgment; righteousness lodged in it; but now murderers.

This harlot was once a faithful city...righteousness lodged in it.

Never was Rome ever in any capacity to be described in the above narrative which refers the harlot to being faithful at one time.

Hitchitaw,

I don't think Romans 10:17 is being demonstrated as a proof for YEC or OEC, but is indeed being given for the biblical means by which Faith comes. Hence the comment of Bro, John "I never did like apologetics as a means to bring others to faith."

“ Great Sermon! ”
@Jonathan Kelley Rom 10:17 ...Faith cometh by hearing, and hearing by the word of God. Psalm 34:8 taste and see that the LORD is good: blessed is the man that trust in Him. 1 John 5:21 These things have I written unto you that believe on the name of the Son of God; that ye may know that ye have eternal life, and that ye may believe on the name of the Son of God.

That's the way of it, James.
Amen, Once you get outside of the pages of Glory trying to reason, then you get sideways fast. Best to keep to the standard Paul demonstrated for us in Acts 17:2.
Good on You Bro!

Al should be calling on God to define. What he calls a powerful summary crumbles once the Word of truth is the sola counsel.

I'd say the answer is defined by the Son quite clearly.

John 4:23 But the hour cometh, and now is, when the true worshippers shall worship the Father in spirit and in truth: for the Father seeketh such to worship him.

From a different perspective, i think the part of Isaiah which seem to have been ignored in all this is....

"they which lead thee cause thee to err, and destroy the way of thy paths."

Biblically speaking, I'd think that to be the same group mentioned in 2:8 that worship the work of their own hands, that which their own fingers have made.

Matt 21:12-13 Instead of a den of thieves, they've allowed other gods...
Great citation Bro. Chris hope you are well.

Matt 21:13 It is written, My house shall be called the house of prayer; but ye have made it a den of thieves.

And if you follow the cross reference to see where "it was written", in my opinion, you come across a more detailed account of the picture through the context of the chapter in which the citation comes from.

Jer 7:8 Behold, ye trust in lying words, that cannot profit.

Will ye steal, murder, and commit adultery, and swear falsely, and burn incense unto Baal, and walk after other gods whom ye know not;

And come and stand before me in this house, which is called by my name, and say, We are delivered to do all these abominations?

Jer 7:11 Is this house, which is called by my name, become a den of robbers in your eyes? Behold, even I have seen it, saith the LORD.

FYI,
I see the point your trying to make Bro.US.
regarding the term wrestle and agree that it is of a spiritual nature. I'm just not so sure that it can be specifically tied to only referencing the sport. I'd think most people then understood that specific term the same way like you and I do today in allowing the context to define the term for us. I also think trying to interject the term to mean a reference to the sport in this specific context just does not make sense.

And also.... Good on Brendan for not wrestling the girl although it is truly sad that he even had the option to do so.

Blessings to you Bro US,

(#1) If it has, as you say, nothing to do with the sport, tell me how anyone understood what Paul was saying.?

I'm of the opinion they knew the subject matter at hand and kept within the context of it. What were the wiles Paul was prepping Ephesians against?

Eph 4:14 That we henceforth be no more children, tossed to and fro, and carried about with every wind of doctrine, by the sleight of men, and cunning craftiness, whereby they lie in wait G3180 to deceive;

Eph 5:6 Let no man deceive you with vain words...

Eph 6:11 Put on the whole armour of God, that ye may be able to stand against the wiles G3180 of the devil.

(#2)Did they also not understand helmets, breastplates... had a spiritual application too?

Sure they did. Here the breastplate and helmet are defined for us.

1 Thess 5:8... putting on the breastplate of faith and love; and for an helmet, the hope of salvation.

Who were the rulers of the darkness Paul spoke of? Could it have been the same ones who taught dead works(Heb.9:14) who Jesus said was of their Father the devil?

Acts 13:27 For they that dwell at Jerusalem, and their rulers, because they knew him not, nor yet the voices of the prophets which are read every sabbath day, they have fulfilled them in condemnin

Considering the context...

Eph 6:11
Put on the whole armour of God, that ye may be able to stand against the wiles of the devil.

John 8:44Ye are of your father the devil,

I'd tend to believe the same people Jesus called out are the same Paul was warning those in Ephesus about and has nothing to do with any sport then or now.
