Vain Repetitions

Could Vain Repetitions point to the false gospels of the Church? Let's examine.

Ac 26:24 And as he thus spake for himself, Festus said with a loud voice, Paul, thou art beside thyself; MUCH LEARNING doth make thee mad.

Lu 18:12 I fast twice in the week, I give tithes of all that I possess.

Lu 18:13 And the publican, standing afar off, would not lift up so much as his eyes unto heaven, but smote upon his breast, saying, God be merciful to me a sinner.

Re 6:10 And they cried with a loud voice, saying, HOW LONG, O Lord, holy and true, dost thou not judge and AVENGE OUR BLOOD on them that dwell on the earth?


The Bible appears to be associating vain repetitions, in the context of prayer to the rebellion of the Church in tribulation. Falling to false gospels that lead to the death of the two witnesses, when the prayer of the Elect is heard by God. The church (Babylon) is set on ungodly knowledge. Because of this, her prayer (multitude of words) is NOT heard when judgment comes on HER.
