Verses:

Rev. 18:4 “Come out of her, My people, that you do not participate in her sins and that you do not receive her plagues.”

 

Excerpts:

The name Babylon originates from “Babel.” The meaning of Babylon relates to man’s own efforts to build a tower to reach unto heaven. Babylon represents man’s ability. We must emphasize that there is no place for man in the church. Heavenly things can only come from heaven; the things of this earth can never go to heaven. Man’s difficulty is that he does not see that he is under judgment, nor does he see that he is just dust and clay. God destroyed man’s plan to build the tower of Babel in order to show man that he is useless in spiritual matters. Man cannot do anything.

 

[The] principle of Babylon is mixing the things of man with the Word of God, and the things of the flesh with the things of the Spirit. It is receiving man’s glory to satisfy man’s lust. According to God’s Word, His children cannot be involved in any matter containing the character of Babylon. God said that we must come out from every situation where man’s power is mixed with God’s power, where man’s ability is mixed with God’s work, and where man’s opinion is mixed with God’s Word. We cannot partake of anything that has the character of Babylon. We have to come out of it. God’s children must learn from the depths of their spirit to separate themselves from Babylon and to judge all her actions. If we do this, we will not be condemned together with Babylon. (CWWN, vol. 34, “The Glorious Church,” pp. 101-102, 104)
