“And I saw three unclean spirits like frogs

come out of the mouth of the dragon (Satan),

and out of the mouth of the beast (the world-order),

and out of the mouth of the false prophet (The USA).

For they are the spirits of devils,

working miracles,

which go forth unto the kings of the earth

and of the whole world,

to gather them to the battle

of that great day of God Almighty.

Behold, I come as a thief.

Blessed is he that watcheth,

and keepeth his garments,

lest he walk naked,

and they see his shame.

And he gathered them together

into a place called in the Hebrew tongue

Armageddon.”

Revelation 16:13-16 (parenthetical comments added by this website Editor)

This above passage from Revelation speaks of a time in which the world’s citizens will be brought to a spiritual valley in which each, man, woman, and child will decide just where they will spend eternity

The movie, “The Matrix” was a very clever sci-fi production in which an alternate universe became the matrix for a terrifying scenario for those held captive in that alternate reality.

.

Well, God has designed this world for various purposes. And one of those purposes is to give living object lessons which teach us higher truths.

.

The beautiful butterfly and its complete transformation from a lowly worm, is symbolic of Christians who have become “born again”.

.

Conversely, the spider is an object lesson to illustrate the captivating power of sin and Satan!

.

And so, we can learn spiritual lessons from the countless things we see in the world.

.

And maybe even from a Hollywood movie!

THE GREAT 2020 PARADIGM SHIFT

.

https://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:Uze_open_console_12.jpgBut what does a Hollywood movie (The Matrix) have to do with the year, 2020!? Well, that horrendous year just might have an eerie resemblance to that movie, at least as far as us being trapped in an alternate reality, which 2020 seems to have became.

.

People around the world are confounded and perplexed about that crazy year of 2020. Why all the pandemic madness of shutting down the world economy over an unknown virus? After all, killer viruses come and go as they have always done?

https://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:2020_Aegean_Sea_earthquake_people.jpg.

And why did the great percentage of inhabitants of this rebellious world (which has so violently rebelled against Heaven’s authority), seemingly bow down in tacit submission to the often absurd demands of the oppressive government authorities, which closed down and even destroyed so many small businesses, and many large ones too?

.

Yes, why did the rebellious nations all merely capitulate to this policy of trying to “stop the world from turning” (as one commentator put it)?

.

And why did the multitudes silently submit to all the obvious lies and distortions and hypocrisy which abounded in 2020, put forth by the leaders of this and other nations?

“…and the whole world lieth in wickedness.”

1st John 5:19 

.

Well, this world has always been a dishonest world…“yea, let God be true, but every man a liar” Romans 3:4

https://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:2020_Aegean_Sea_earthquake_people.jpg

.

Nevertheless, the year of 2020 became an incredible year in which almost the entire world openly exposed our deceit, hypocrisy, cheating and abject lies.

.

For example, when there was discovered a shortage of masks, we were told by the so-called medical authorities, that “Masks are of no value!”

https://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:Antifa_@_Trump_in_Phoenix_8-22-17.jpg

.

But when masks became readily available, the same authorities then said, “Masks are an absolute existential necessity for the human race!”

.

And then we were all commanded to social distance, avoiding being in crowds. But when rioters and protesters began to move in mobs, these leaders then said, “Well, these ‘peaceful protesters’ are doing a public service.”

.

But when those of an opposing political party began protesting, this was somehow “unacceptable!” The lies, distortions and deception and fraud which occurred in 2020 really made clear, just how dishonest that we humans really are, even as Scripture reveals….“But evil men and seducers shall wax worse and worse, deceiving, and being deceived.” 2nd Timothy 3:13

.

And these above examples are just a few of the countless lies, deceptions, cheating, and corruption which occurred on a daily basis via the political leaders and establishment media to mislead the world in 2020. And those who have received a love for truth might still search the Internet via the smaller, more uncensored search-engines to uncover the myriad of lies which were thrust (and still being thrust) upon the world in 2020.

THE CANCEL-CULTURE FORETOLD IN BIBLE

.

http://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:DDLI.pngA relatively new phenomenon has arisen, tagged as “The Cancel-Culture”. This is what many are now calling, “The Death of Free Speech”. And truth-be-told, a great percentage of citizens somehow think this totalitarianism is, “Perfectly okay!”

.

Of course, the Bible foretold of this very day, saying…“And he (The False Prophet, The United States) causeth all, both small and great, rich and poor, free and bond, to receive a mark in their right hand, or in their foreheads: And that no man might buy or sell, save he that had the mark, or the name of the beast, or the number of his name.” Revelation 13:16, 17 (parenthetical comments by this website Editor)

https://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:PropagandaNaziStabsBible.gif.

Here is foretold, the day in which this second Beast of Revelation 13 (which this website determines to be The United States of America) forbids anyone from refusing to pay homage to the “correct” ideologies, whether political, social, or religious.

.

And this Beast power will make it harder and more difficult to “buy or sell”, whether economically, but also, spiritually (that is, “buying and selling” the true unvarnished Gospel of Christ).

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:Martin,_John_-_Satan_presiding_at_the_Infernal_Council_-_1824.JPGThe god of this world (Satan) hath blinded the minds of men…

2nd Corinthians 4:4

.

Well, to make a long story short, the “god of this world”, Lucifer (now given the titles, “The Devil”, and “Satan”), is preparing this world for Judgment Day. Oh yes, the true rulers of this world, the unseen spiritual authorities, evil angels, have been preparing this world for a very long time, for the end-time showdown, known as Armageddon, in which each man, woman, and child must choose either this world, or the everlasting world to come!

.

But the day has come for Armageddon, “The Valley of Decision”, to appear (see Joel 3:14). And perhaps, it’s also the hour in which Satan takes off his phony, “form of godliness” mask which he’s been wearing for the last several centuries!

https://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:George_Floyd_police_brutality_protests_-_Portland_Oregon_-_July_22_-_tedder_-_02.jpg.

Yes, Satan has been deceiving the world’s populace into the lie, the lie that, “there’s much goodness in this otherwise bad world”, when just the opposite is true (And truth-be-told, Satan most likely was the true designer of the virus).

And 2020 has given mankind a lucid portrait of the true nature of evil which actually reigns over this world! Just look at the hate-filled and violent thugs who freely roamed city streets often with the blessing of certain governors and mayors!? (of course, Wikipedia has seemingly scrubbed most of the more graphic photos from their website, possibly in attempt to erase and rewrite the true history of the violence which went on in 2020)

MARK NOW GIVEN

.

https://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:Uze_open_console_12.jpgBut the true reality is, that Satan must get the world ready to receive the Mark of the Beast. And so, the world must be ready to shut off the ability to buy and sell (whether financially or spiritually). And the year 2020 was perhaps , “The Matrix” https://theheavensdeclare.net/mark-of-the-beast-seal-of-god/for this new reality. A soon-coming totalitarian world of Satan’s making, as he works through the unsaved rulers and even through the unsaved citizens of this world!

But there are many others who are scratching their heads in amazement that such a vast throng are so willing to bring in this new dystopian world-order, in spite of the obvious deceptions, and out-and-out lies being thrust upon us, telling us “How wonderful this new “social-justice” world-order is going to be!”

“And take heed to yourselves, lest at any time your hearts be overcharged with surfeiting, and drunkenness, and cares of this life, and so that day come upon you unawares.”

Luke 21:34  

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:Brown_tree_snake_Boiga_irregularis_2_USGS_Photograph.jpg.

Well, this is merely a brief explanation of what the coming days and months may bring. But we are not ignorant of Satan’s devices. We fully understand that this serpent-like deceiver can change course instantly to suit his deceptive purposes.

.

And whichever way things unfold, we can be assured that the whole world (including the apostate churches) will be deceived! The leaders of today’s apostate churches are even now deceiving their flocks into the lie…“Don’t worry, be happy! You’ll be raptured out of the world prior to the coming ‘Great Tribulation'”

“…because joy is withered away from the sons of men.”

Joel 1:12

.

But whatever the near future turns out to look like, God has given us a great big picture of the true evil nature of this fallen world. And the year, 2020 is just the beginning of sorrows for the human race. Yes, the year 2020 is just the beginning of our sorrows. But even though this horrible year has been brought to us by Satan, nevertheless, our merciful God has allowed these things in the great hope that they will cause us to look upward for help and deliverance…

https://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:Rezando.jpg“For the Lord will not cast off for ever: 

But though He cause grief,

https://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:USMC-100506-M-2360J-038.jpg

yet will He have compassion

according to the multitude of His mercies.

For He doth not afflict willingly

nor grieve the children of men.

To crush under His feet all the prisoners of the earth,

Let us search and try our ways,

and turn again to the LORD.

Let us lift up our heart with our hands unto God in the heavens.”

Lamentations 3:31-34, 40, 41

“GOOD NEWS FROM A FAR COUNTRY”

Proverbs 25:25

.

http://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:USMC-06831.jpgYes, the very Good News in all this horrifying report, is that God has graciously allowed this world time to repent of our evil! Yes, it is still the day of salvation! And as the prophet Joel prophesied of this very day, saying,  “And it shall come to pass, that whosoever shall call on the name of the Lord shall be saved.” Acts 2:21

.

Now even though it appears that we now must live in this new dystopian world-order, there is still much to rejoice in! Yes, the extremely Good News is, that today is still the day of Salvation! And God is allowing us time to fully armor up with His infallible Word, as we prayerfully hide that Word-of-Faith in our hearts, day-by-day!

VALLEY OF DECISION GROUP…

.

Look eastward in the early summer through fall. Find the Cassiopeia Constellation. Cassiopeia is the Mount of Blessing.

Valley of Decision + O Destroying Mountain Constellation Group

.

In the sketch, it is the farthest mountain to the left. In the sky, it is the northern-most of these three mountains when facing eastward. It resembles a pyramid. Then find the next pyramid to its right (south). Then go a little further south to the next third pyramid. The third snow-cap is the Destroying Mountain Constellation. These three pyramids are the snow-capped portion of these three mountains in this sketch. (of course, you won’t see the snow-caps in the sky. They are just an embellishment in this sketch to present a concept-EDITOR).

.

“Come, and let us go up to the mountain of the LORD, and to the house of the God of Jacob; and he will teach us of his ways, and we will walk in his paths: for the law shall go forth of Zion, and the word of the LORD from Jerusalem.” Micah 4:1, 2

THE VALLEY OF DECISION CONSTELLATION GROUP. They appear in mid-summer in the eastern skies in pre-dawn hours.

Valley of Decision & O Destroying Mtn. Constellations

.

These are made of Cassiopeia (mount on left), and various stars from the Andromeda Constellation (valley) Pegasus (Mount of Cursing (middle mount) & Destroying Mount (right)), and Pisces (Broad Way to Hell). The galaxy which appears to be climbing the Mountain of Blessing is the Andromeda Galaxy

.

The above Wikipedia star-chart shows this amazing constellation group as it appears from June to fall, just prior to the winter constellation group. Actually, this Valley of Decision Constellations appear in early summer in the pre-dawn hours. (Editor of this website has sketched in this constellation group onto this above Wikipedia star-chart.)
