Jeremiah 27:1-28:17; Psalm 119: 33-40; Proverbs 27:18; 2 Thessalonians 3:1-18
Do not go to Babylon means, for you, there will be a culture awash in worldly ways in which you will be surrounded but by which you will not be diseased. You are Mine, and armored in Me, able to withstand the stench and the stuff of this broken world.
Yours is to plead the Blood of Christ over yourself, remembering that you are safe because of Me and so are your prayers, which emanate from you through Me before the Father. Trust Me to protect you and guide you through those who sneer and mock and stand in derision. You will show no disdain, no contempt, but instead, mercy, forgiving those who hate you or curse you or persecute you or spitefully use you. You are Mine, and therefore, your skin cannot be thin (or merely human). My shield! My buckler! You are armored in Me.
