Tribulation Worketh Patience

By admin On January 10th, 2022

Therefore being justified by faith, we have peace with God through our Lord Jesus Christ:

By whom also we have access by faith into this grace wherein we stand, and rejoice in hope of the glory of God.

And not only so, but we glory in tribulations also: knowing that tribulation worketh patience;

And patience, experience; and experience, hope:

And hope maketh not ashamed; because the love of God is shed abroad in our hearts by the Holy Ghost which is given unto us.

The Devil Made Me Do It, Part 33: “Mass Psychosis or Devil-Delusion?”

Back in the 1970’s, a certain saying was popularized…“The Devil made me do it! The Devil made me do it!”https://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:Flip_Wilson_-_1970.jpg

.

And this was merely mocking Christians, who were seemingly obsessed with pointing the finger at the Devil.

.

Then they could all laugh and mock the notion that Satan is a very active and powerful force controlling the peoples of this world, by mockingly saying…“The Devil made me do it!”

SATAN, “THE GOD OF THIS WORLD”

2nd Corinthians 4:4

.

But the horrifying fact is, the Devil does indeed cause the vast percentage of the http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:Martin,_John_-_Satan_presiding_at_the_Infernal_Council_-_1824.JPGworld’s inhabitants to do a great amount of things!

.

After all, Ephesians, Chapter 2 reveals a truth that practically nobody realizes or accepts! It is perhaps the most egregious truth in all of the Bible!

.

And this verse is, “…the prince of the power of the air, the spirit that now worketh in the children of disobedience:”

.

And let’s face it! The idea that the entire world’s inhabitants are filled with this evil spirit is more than anybody is willing to accept, much less even admit!

.

.

.

A leading doctor in the field of vaccines was being interviewed about “all the lies, embellishments, and misinformation” coming out from the government and corporate media during the pandemic. And during the interview, this virus-expert noted the obsessive, even fanatical behavior of a vast percentage of people in regard to covid lockdowns/masking comparing it to the fanatical/irrational behavior of Germany as they blindly and zealously followed all the Nazi extremism during the early part of the Twentieth Century. In other words, this scientist was amazed that so many have become extremists in their handling the current lockdowns and mandates. And all this fanatical extremism when it should be obvious the government and media have been dishonest about so many aspects of the pandemic. The German poplulation went from very rational to “bat-crazy in their allegiance to Hitler’s political madness”, said the virologist.

.

And this doctor/scientist further noted that the radical behavior of so many of today’s politicians and major-media operatives is also akin to the radical Nazi madness of that era.

.

And this same virologist fully agreed with one of his colleagues who recently suggested that what we’ve been seeing is what he called “Mass Formation Psychosis”. This is a mental condition in which a society becomes obsessed over one issue to the degree that behavior becomes fanatical and even irrational.

.

And as an example, this notable virologist cited such things as people wearing masks while driving alone, or walking alone in a forest still wearing a mask!

.

And another observer also noted that in one U.S. state, the hospitals are firing “non-vaccinated” employees who are covid-free, and instead hiring employees WITH COVID, but are vaccinated, to fill the void! “This is absolute madness!”, said the observer.

.

Well, as one might imagine, the attack dogs immediately came out all over the media, denouncing the virologist’s diagnosis as “Baseless and false!”

.

Of course, it is only to be expected that “mentally ill” people will adamantly deny their own mental illness, and instead ardently defend their irrational behavior. And so, the proverbial “knives have come out” against any such notion that the general populace and their leaders are suffering from “Mass Formation Psychosis”.

TODAY’S FEATURED HEAVENLY SIGN

Info & pics of constellations on this site from Wikipedia & International Astronomical Union (click here)

 

.

.

.

WHAT THIS PAGE IS ABOUT…

.

Corona Borealis Wikipedia Taken from software Perseus.

This page is concerned with the Glorious Crown (a.k.a. Corona Borealis Constellation), as is written… “And there appeared a great wonder (sign) in heaven; a woman…and upon her head a crown of twelve stars.” Revelation 12:1. 

.

corona borealis

.

This rather dim constellation follows behind that bright and beautiful star, Arcturus , as Arcturus leads a heavenly ambassage through the heavens each night in summer. 

.

many crowns happen to be studded with precious jewels. Well this heavenly crown is no exception! And though these “jewels” are stars, they represent the precious jewels spoken of throughout Scripture, when speaking about God’s people.

.

But this constellation is not nearly as high-profile as, say, the 7 Stars Constellation (a.k.a., The Big Dipper).  It is relatively dim, compared to those two bright constellations.

.

.

LOCATING THIS CROWN…

.

This constellation begins to appear in late December (just before dawn), but is best seen, mid-sky when this group of constellations can be seen when facing west. In March-April, very late in the pre-dawn hours, this Summer Constellation group begins to be seen when facing west, and continues to be seen in the west until fall.

summer w/ark & woman

.

The Crown follows almost directly behind that great star, Arcturus, as you can see in the sketch.

.

Repeat: it is somewhat easier to study the 12 stars of this constellation when it is in western half of night-sky (when you have to see it as you face westward). So when these Summer Constellations are in the western half of the sky, simply follow the handle of the Big Dipper till you locate Arcturus. Then the Crown is following Arcturus. You will only see the wreath-like 7 stars plus 1 star (in middle) until you get away from all city lights. Then you can make out the other 5 stars, which makes it appear like a full crown.

.

.

COMBINATION OF BOTH CORONA BOREALIS & BOOTES

.Wikipedia Star-Chart - Corona Borealis

This constellation is a combination of both Corona Borealis plus several stars from the Bootes Constellation.

.

The stars, Alkalyroos-Bootis and the Delta-Bootis Star are both combined with the other stars from the Corona Borealis community, to make this 12-star (plus 13th star in middle).

Vernon McGee…Teacher of Babylon?

By admin On January 5th, 2022

The Church of God has been growing in apostasy for several centuries, ever since persecution ceased by The Church of Rome in Europe. Worldly compromises have steadily crept into the church-world over the last two centuries. (For detailed information about these compromises, the Reader is encouraged to read such articles as…) 

.

And yet, in spite of this growing apostasy, God did not completely abandon His Lukewarm people. Perhaps, the world’s most popular daily Bible study is now the 5-year “Thru The Bible” study, heard daily via many radio stations, both domestically as well as in other nations, hosted by the late, John Vernon McGee.

.

And when it began in the 1970’s it seemed like a very great way to be introduced to the Bible via its, book-by-book, chapter-by-chapter, and sometimes even verse-by-verse systematic study through the entire Bible, over a five year period, then repeating itself for another five year period. And so, a new listener could “jump in” at any point and continue, knowing that in five years, he or she would have completed the entire Bible, regardless of whatever book of the Bible they first jumped in at.

.

And Vernon McGee made a very plain and easy to understand presentation, often adding his own humorous quips, grandfatherly advice, and folksy “down-home” witticisms, which only made his study that much more popular with neophyte Christians.

.

Unfortunately, McGee’s study has its flaws.

.

First, how McGee ever concluded that there is humor in the Bible, thus allowing him to tell jokes, quips, witticisms etc., is truly a mystery! Because the Bible, while being the very essence of godly love, sympathy, tenderness, etc., never resorts to humor, or jesting, no, not even once! This uses of worldly humor is just one of the worldly compromises which has crept into the Christian community. 

.

McGee was an avid supporter of the Scofield Study Bible, and as such, McGee was misled by this false teacher in a number of different areas, such as the Pre-Tribulation Rapture. 

.

McGee also believed in Eternal Torment, which was a heresy via The Church of Rome’s misunderstanding of proper Bible hermeneutics requiring all related passages to be rightly balanced concerning this subject. Well, time and space does not permit McGee’s flaws to be thoroughly reviewed.

.

Sufficed it to say, that McGee had many other errors in his teachings which marred his efforts to present a systematic, verse-by-verse, chapter-by-chapter, book-by-book daily study through the entire Bible in five years.  

.

But aside from that grave error, Doctor McGee also allowed himself to be heavily influenced by the extremely flawed, even heretical writings of Cyrus Scofield, who, among other heresies, convinced McGee that there was a previous creation, dying off prior to the 7 day Creation week recorded in Genesis! This grievous error, McGee somewhat publicly renounced on his radio program, prior to the end of his 5-year Thru The Bible radio series.

.

He also clung tenaciously to Scofield’s Pre-Tribulation Rapture teachings, as well as Scofield’s hyper-dispensationalism teachings.

.

On the other hand, to McGee’s credit, he did believe in Election by grace and grace alone. And his 5-year series stayed fairly much within the basic parameters of Bible truth. And truth-be-told, much of his daily teachings were really excellent, barring the aforementioned Scofield-inspired false doctrines (A Pre-Adamic-Creation, Hyper-Dispensationalism, and Pre-Tribulation Rapture, as well as his irreverent humor).

.

Nevertheless, his grandfatherly demeanor was very biblical and even much needed and appreciated by so many of his followers, who grew up in non-Christian homes, void of Bible-believing parents to nurture them up in the Word, on a daily basis.

.

Therefore, with great sadness it must be confessed that McGee’s ministry was severely tarnished with the same Babylonish influences and errors, of which God is now calling His people to come out of and separate from… “Come out of her (Babylon) My people, that ye be not partakers of her sins, and that ye receive not of her plagues.” Revelation 18:4

.

The great day of God is upon us! And God is wanting to purify His Elect with the same purity as Jesus Christ possessed, even as it is written…“And every man that hath this hope in him purifieth himself, even as he is pure.” 1st John 3:3. Without such Christlike purity, it would be impossible for God’s people to “shine forth as the Sun“, as Matthew 13:43 prophesy’s of in these last moments of New Testament times.

.

But the very Good News is, that we still have opportunity to study God’s Word for our own selves. And along with the teachings of the messages of the three angels of Revelation 14, there is ample study material to keep one extremely busy “until the Lord come”. 1st Corinthians 4:5

.

And praise the Lord, He has given us two very wonderful patriarchs  who did not rely on worldly humor, to fill the void of our “less than godly family situations”! Both Harold Camping and Ellen White can more than compensate for our needs as we join this end-time exodus away from this City of Destruction, and begin our heavenward sojourn to the Celestial City of God, the heavenly Promised Land!

Christmas, the Highest Form of Praise

By admin On December 30th, 2021

There is a saying in the world, which goes…”Imitation is the highest form of praise”

.

One of the most revered holidays is the Christmas holiday (or, “holy-day”). It is celebrated in many nations of the world, by Christians and non-Christians alike!

.

But where did Christmas come from? Where and when did Christmas come into being?

.

Well, Hislop’s book, “The Two Babylons” presents the history of Christmas, and how it originally came from ancient Babylon, as a day celebrating Babylonian gods. But during the rise of the Church of Rome, that apostate organization, in colaboration with pagan Rome began to mingle various Babylonian holidays into Christianity, thinking to appeal to a wider audience and following within that apostate church. Thus, both Easter and Christmas are rooted in paganism. The Bible even speaks of Easter as a day to celebrate the resurrection of the god, Tammuz, in which the Hebrew women went gathered at sunrise to weep for that pagan deity just prior to his rising from the dead.

.

But Christmas was a day in which another pagan god was celebrated

.

And of course, Satan, made sure that both these pagan holy-days had enough similarity to the birth, death and resurrection of Jesus Christ to make such a transfer into Christianity very easy!

.

And Hislop’s book, “The Two Babylons makes very distinct, the connection with the Church of Rome to ancient, pagan Babylon…thus his title, “The TWO Babylons”.

.

Now, the main purpose of this article is to showcase how the Protestant churches never completely came out from under the authoritarian rule of the Church of Rome. Oh yes, they discarded much of Rome’s traditions, such as the deification of Mary, Mother of Jesus. And they did away with the “paying of Indulgences” to get their loved ones freed from the netherworld dungeon, called Hell.

.

But tragically, the Protestant churches clung to these holy-days (and also, the false doctrine of eternal torment, another false church-doctrine created by the Roman Catholic Church).

.

And the point to be made today, is that by celebrating these Roman Catholic holy-days, the Christian community is actually praising the Church of Rome. Yes, “imitation is the highest form of praise”. And by using pagan terminology, such as “The Trinity” (which Hislop proved originated from the worship of the triune Fish-god of Babylon and found its way into Catholicism), the Protestant churches no longer protested that apostate religion but continued to drink of her intoxicating wine of false doctrines!

.

And don’t imagine for one moment that this imitation by Christians has escaped the notice of the Catholic Church. Not for one moment! But rather Catholics undoubtedly use such a praise-worthy imitation as proof that they are the true chosen church of God! Thus, the Protestant church are unknowingly causing millions of deceived worldlings to join the Catholic Church, the very same church which persecuted, tortured, imprisoned, and murdered perhaps, millions of Christians during those long, bloody centuries called The Dark Ages of Europe!

.

Yes, when we imitate the world, we unknowingly give praise to “the god of this world”, Satan!

.

The Good News is that instead of praising the Church of Rome, and instead of praising the World, God is just now giving us opportunity to come out of Babylon, and begin praising our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ. Yes, by throwing off the stench of our world-loving ways, and purifying ourselves into the glorious image of Christ, we can become changed into vessels of gold, praising our Lord in all we think, do, and say, wherever we go!

stubbornness

“For rebellion is as the sin of witchcraft, and stubbornness is as iniquity and idolatry. Because thou hast rejected the word of the LORD, he hath also rejected thee from being king.”

The Return of Elijah, Part 5: “Fathers & Children” CONTINUED “Children and Atheism”

The Return of Elijah, Part 5: “Fathers & Children” CONTINUED “Children and Atheism”

To read Part 1, go here…June 22 (The Return of Elijah, Part 1: “Fathers & Children”)

.

.

.

.

.

“Behold, I will send you Elijah the prophet

before the coming of the great and dreadful

day of the LORD:

And he shall turn the heart of the fathers

to the children,

and the heart of the children to their fathers,

lest I come and smite the earth with a curse.”

Malachi 4:5, 6

.

.

.

 

.

.

There’s a great deal of speculation about this above passage concerning the return of Elijah, the Prophet, just prior to the, “great and terrible day of the Lord”. 

.

Will this Elijah be the exact same Elijah who came to Israel back in the days of the kings of Israel?

.

Or will he be another individual, who, like John the Baptist, will come in the spirit and power of Elijah?

.

Or was this Old Testament prophecy fulfilled in the coming of John the Baptist?

.

And these are the three most popular theories about this most infamous human prophet who is to return in these last moments of time.

.

.

THE FLOODS OF EVIL

.

But notice that our signature Bible passage speaks of Elijah turning the heart of the fathers to the children, and the heart of the children to the fathers.

.

And let’s face it! Satan has so poisoned the waters of our society to the degree that learning the sinful ways of this world is “as easy as falling off” that proverbial, “log!”

.

ABOVE PICTURE: television & the image of Satan – www.signsofheaven.org

.

.

.

For a nation which was created by God to become a safe-haven of refuge from the persecution and tyranny which went on for centuries in Europe, The United States has tragically devolved into a different form of tyranny and persecution.

.

Satan used the apostate church-world to bring about what was named, The Dark Ages, by means of oppression of God’s people, as well as many secularists. Dungeons, torture chambers, poverty, book-burning, incineration of humans, banishment from society, and false church-doctrines were the order of the day during those centuries.

.

But today, Satan has come against humanity with new weapons of mass destruction. Instead of famine/scarcity/poverty, this master-of-persecution has been flooding the western nations with opulence, over-abundance, hedonistic-pleasures, which has proved far more destructive than his former weapons of war.

.

One of Satan’s rather new assault weapons has become atheism. Yes, atheism, the belief that there is no God has resulted in tearing down the law of God which was the glue which held societies together. Yes, the Bible speaks of this in such passages as…“Now we know that what things soever the law saith, it saith to them who are under the law: that every mouth may be stopped, and all the world may become guilty before God.” Romans 3:19

.

Here we see that the entire world is “under the law: that every mouth may be stopped, and all the world may become guilty before God.” Romans 3:19

.

Now, this little series called, “The Return of Elijah” has primarily focused on the fact that when Elijah does return, “he shall turn the heart of the fathers to the children, and the heart of the children to their fathers” Malachi 4:6

.

Well, this is a very wonderful verse when we consider that our society has devolved into a very self-serving one. In other words, focus of many or perhaps most is upon seeking after materialistic/fleshly and vain pleasures and the proud and ambitious pursuits.

.

And instead of schooling their children at home, most pre-occupied parents have left this responsibility up to our atheistic school-systems! Thus, most children have been thoroughly indoctrinated into atheism, socialism, hedonism, as well as sexual perversions!

.

And now, the western societies are “reap(ing) the whirlwind”, as the Prophet, Hosea puts it!

.

Yes, much or most of the younger generation have been raised without a firm foundation. They are like a ship, driven and tossed with the wind, having little or no moral compass. Just listen to the desperate pleas in social media from confused teens who are delving into immorality, not even realizing right from wrong, even in the most basic of fundamental truths of nature!

.

And like never before, young people are turning to suicide, drugs, rap-music, and other tragic pursuits, simply because they have never received a spiritual upbringing from their detached, distracted, and disengaged parents.

.

Children need to have purpose for living

.

 

.

.

.

.

.

DON’T WAIT FOR ELIJAH!

.

Well, the Good News is that we don’t have to wait for Elijah to show up (whom this website teaches, to actually be speaking of God’s end-time Elect people, collectively)!

http://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:USMC-06831.jpg.

We can begin right now to put away the vain and foolish pursuits which steal away the precious moments with our children and with His Word!

.

And by spending copious time contemplating the Bible and nature, parents can direct the hearts of their children upward to Heaven in such away that they will be able to withstand the fierce trials and temptations which will undoubtedly assail us all in these coming days, and prepare us to walk through the Everlasting Doors which will open up for each and every child of the King on that glorious day!

1st FACE…THE NIGHT WATCHMAN

.

https://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:Blue_moon_of_31.08.2012.jpg“MOON IS CONFOUNDED”… The first face, a man’s face, is easy to see. It is that proverbial ‘Man in the Moon’. Most have seen it. Even as little children. (The other two faces are not so easy to see.  But let’s concentrate on the first face.) Notice that the ‘Man in the Moon’ appears as though he is looking down at the Earth. ‘Shock and Awe’. That’s the look on his face. Sadness too! You might even see the tears running down his cheeks. (“Rivers of waters run down mine eyes, because they keep not thy law.” Psalm 119:136) The Moon is spoken of as a “faithful witness”. God’s covenanted law is spoken of as a faithful witness as well. Listen to the Psalmist…

.

https://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:Blue_moon_of_31.08.2012.jpg“It (God’s covenant with David [i.e., Christ]) shall be established for ever as the Moon, and as a faithful witness in heaven. Selah.” Psalm 89:37. Notice here that God is comparing His Covenant to the Moon as a “faithful witness”. The Moon reflects the light of the Sun, just as Christians should reflect the light of the Sun of Righteousness, Jesus, who should be in their daily lives. And so the Moon fulfills the verse from Psalms which proclaims… “Praise ye him, Sun and Moon: praise him, all ye stars of light.” Psalm 148:3

http://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/User:UpstateNYerOn September 11th, 2001, approximately 3,000 people were brutally murdered by a group of humans, so filled with hate, they were willing to destroy their own in the process.

.

And as tragic and horrifying as that “911” event was, most Americans merely shrug our shoulders in complacent disregard at the 3,000 humans brutally murdered each and day in our abortion mills!

WHAT DOES GOD SAY?

.

https://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:Fetus_ellipse.jpgNevertheless, even though abortion has been legal in America for a number of decades, there is still a great divide in western societies over this issue.

.

But just what does the Bible say about abortion? That’s the really important question!

.

What does God have to say about this very controversial issue?

“THOU SHALT NOT KILL”

.

Of course, the very first passage which comes to mind is the 6th Commandment…”Thou shalt not kill.” Exodus 20:13

.https://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:Ten_Commandments_marker_in_front_of_Dixie_County_Courthouse.JPG

And Jesus, during His earthly sojourn, said it this way…”Thou shalt do no murder.” Matthew 19:18

.

The problem is, many people have somehow convinced themselves that this commandment doesn’t apply to unborn children. “It’s just a hunk of flesh”, they disingenuously proclaim.

.

But the Bible reveals that this so-called, “hunk of flesh” is actually a child! After all, in Genesis 38:24, a young lady named Tamar, was said to be, “with child”, only three months after conception.

JOHN MEETS JESUS AND LEAPS FOR JOY!

.

Listen to this next passage from Luke’s Gospel…”For, lo, as soon as the voice of thy (Mary’s) salutation, sounded in mine (Mary’s cousin, Elizabeth) ears, the babe (John the Baptist) leaped in my womb for joy.” Luke 1:44

.https://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:Domenico_ghirlandaio,_visitazione,_louvre_01.jpg

Here was the young virgin, Mary, going to her cousin Elisabeth’s home, just days after she was told that she was with child, the baby Jesus. And Elisabeth (who was six months along with her own baby, John the Baptist), exclaimed to Mary that she felt John leap in her (Elisabeth’s) womb for joy because Jesus had entered the home of Elisabeth.

.

So now it is established that Jesus, although newly conceived, was already a living soul within Mary’s womb. And John, six months along in his mother’s womb, was able to think, reason, and even to leap for joy because the Holy Spirit informed him that the Savior of the world was in the house.

.

And so, this passage should dispel the popular notion that a newly conceived child is merely “a hunk of flesh”, as many abortion advocates would have us to believe. Yes, Mary was probably only a few weeks with child, and yet Jesus was very present.

.

But also, being only six months in Elisabeth’s womb, John’s actions prove that a child in the womb is able to think and even experience joy!

LIFE MUST BE GIVEN FOR LIFE!

.

Now, just one more passage. This one is found in Exodus, when Moses is explaining the law… “If https://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:Fetus_ellipse.jpgmen strive, and hurt a woman with child, so that her fruit depart from her, and yet no mischief (damage) follow: he shall be surely punished, according as the woman’s husband will lay upon him; and he shall pay as the judges determine. And if any mischief (damages) follow, then thou shalt give life for life…”  Exodus 21:21-23 (parenthetical comments by website Editor)

.

In other words, if anyone dies (Old English word, “mischief’), then “life shall be given for life”.

.

And all of us instinctively know that life begins at conception. And the previously mentioned passage from Luke, (concerning Jesus being just recently conceived), confirms that life begins at conception.

“Hands That Shed Innocent Blood”

Proverbs 6:17

.

And so, from these passages it is clear that God has given enough information in the Bible for all https://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:Fetus_ellipse.jpgtruth-seekers to realize that abortion is indeed, murder.

.

And yet, God has supplied those who are dishonest in heart, with enough “pegs to hang their doubts upon”. 

.

But really, the people of the world all realize that abortion prevents that child from entering the world. And deep down they realize what abortion is: dirty rotten murder!

THE GOOD NEWS OF SALVATION

.

https://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:Jesus_Christ_in_prayer.jpgNevertheless, for those who have already committed this heinous sin, there is hope! Yes, even the great Apostle, Paul, was guilty of murder, prior to his conversion. And God forgave him.

.

And King David was likewise a murder, and yet, God forgave him as well.

.

And so, those who have committed the grievous sin of killing that life in their womb can come to Jesus and plead for His forgiveness just like David did. (read Psalm 51).

7 HEADS, 10 HORNS, & 7 CROWNS OF THE DRAGON

.

“And there appeared another wonder in heaven; and behold a great red dragon, having seven heads and ten horns, and seven crowns upon his heads.” Rev. 12:3 

.Dragon of Revelation 12 Constellation

In Revelation, the Dragon of Revelation 12 is described as having seven heads, ten horns, and seven crowns. However, the Dragon Constellation up in the night sky does not. But God has faithfully created the wave of water, in such a way, as to illustrate this same concept of the seven heads, ten horns, and seven crowns. Because this wave of water is basically composed of ten stars. The main body of the wave has seven stars (#‘s, 1 thru 7). And the tip of the crest of the wave has the other three stars (#’s, 8, 9 & 10). So we have this 7 and 10 numbering. And this gives us a great clue, as to where in the Bible we should look, to find out the riddle as to just what or who do these 7 heads, 10 crowns, and 7 horns represent. Because, the Bible speaks very much about floods and waters as being associated with Satan (the Dragon).

The Serpent of Old Constellation

By admin On November 30th, 2021

Luke 21:25 foretells the following…”And there shall be signs in the sun, and in the moon, and in the stars; and upon the earth distress of nations, with perplexity; the sea and the waves roaring;”

.

Here is one of the last events to happen just prior to the return of Christ, for it is written…”And when these things begin to come to pass, then look up, and lift up your heads; for your redemption draweth nigh.” Luke 21:28

.

If ever there was a time to be looking up, as this verse commands, it is NOW!

.

And while looking up, has the Reader yet located the “Serpent of Old Constellation”? Well, by all means do so! It is a very remarkable constellation with jaws made from the very same stars that form the head of that ancient Babylonian constellation, “Draco”.

.

Now, the body of Draco is made of completely different stars than the body of this Serpent of Old Constellation. Just the four stars which make up the head of Draco are the very same four stars which form the jaws of the Serpent of Old.

.

The reason for bringing this up is to use this Serpent of Old Constellation’s jaws to illustrate the main point of today’s devotional.

.

You see, those four stars which comprise the Serpents jaws make him appear to have his deadly jaws wide open. And one of the remarkable aspects of this is discovered by following the two trajectories of each jaw, both the upper as well as the lower jaws.

.

And if one should do this, it will be discovered that the lower jaw makes a straight line across the night-sky to, guess where?

.

The two stars of the lower jaw makes a trajectory straight to the Valley of Decision Constellation!

.

But if you should follow the trajectory of the two stars which comprise the upper jaw, guess where that leads to?

.

The two stars of the upper jaw makes a trajectory straight across the night-sky to the five foolish virgin stars on the Broad Way to Hell Constellation which is part of the Valley of Decision Constellation!

.

So just why is this important?

.

Well, the reason why these two trajectories are important is because they illustrate the great purpose of Satan, as he leads the apostate portion of the Church to The Valley of Decision, to be judged, and then ultimately down to Hell!

.

Here is where the parable of the Ten Virgins begins to have great significance in these last days! You see, in that parable, the five foolish virgins could not make it into the wedding supper. Because, when their lamps went out, they just did not have any oil in their vessels to see the Way into the wedding supper! And only the five wise virgins had back-up oil to light their Way into the supper.

.

Here is a great illustration concerning the seal of God and the mark of the Beast!

.

To put it very concisely, only those who have the oil of God’s Holy Spirit in their vessels (their hearts), have the seal of God. But those who do not have oil in their vessels (their hearts) will soon be filled with the character of Satan, which is the spirit of Antichrist, which is the spirit of the world.

.

Now both groups had oil in their lamps, which symbolized the Word of God, the Bible. And yet, those lamps all went out! Here is a frightening truth which many do not fully grasp. In these last days, it appears as if God is going to withdraw His Spirit from the Bible. And those who have been hiding His precious promises in their hearts will be required to walk by whatever scriptures they have already stored within.

.

But those who have been too busy in the world will find themselves bankrupt and left in darkness on that Day!

.

In other words, at some point in time, God’s people will be required to rely only upon whatever portion of the Bible they previously hid in their hearts via the daily study and contemplation of God’s precious promises. But the foolish ones in the Church had been so preoccupied with the cares and pleasures of the world that they neglected to do the ever-so-critical heart-work necessary to stand in the Evil Day!

.

Listen again to Luke….”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. For as a snare shall it come on all them that dwell on the face of the whole earth. Watch ye therefore, and pray always, that ye may be accounted worthy to escape all these things that shall come to pass, and to stand before the Son of man.” Luke 21:34-36

.

Here is a warning to all, that we must not allow the cares and pleasures of this life eclipse our necessary preparation for the coming crisis!

.

Jesus plainly revealed to His disciples that true Salvation can only be revealed by a total devotion to God…”So likewise, whosoever he be of you that forsaketh not all that he hath, he cannot be My disciple.” Luke 14:33

.

And so, there are many in today’s church-world who have been deceived by their church-leaders into believing that they can still vigorously pursue the many seemingly “good” pleasures and ambitious pursuits of this selfish world, and still maintain a relationship with Christ. Oh yes, those foolish ones go to church each week. And oh yes, they have enjoyed many fruitful Bible studies in the past.

.

But when that dreadful Day finally arrives, it will be so sad when they discover that they were totally bankrupt of heavenly grace: no oil in their vessels (their hearts)!

.

And so, this is why that wily old serpent, the Devil and Satan is leading all the foolish ones in the Church to the Valley of Decision, and ultimately off to Hell!

.

Listen…”Multitudes, multitudes in the valley of decision: for the day of the LORD is near in the valley of decision.” Joel 3:14

.

Well, there is a bit of Good News, in spite of this dreadful news just presented.

.

You see, in His great mercy, God has allowed just enough time for all of us who have foolishly squandered our precious moments seeking for earthly treasures and pleasures, to repent! Yes, those of us who have been foolish virgins, spiritually speaking, can use this little probationary time remaining, to cry out to God for mercy and grace!

.

Listen to James 4:4, 8-10, as he speaks to God’s professed people…”Ye adulterers and adulteresses, know ye not that the friendship of the world is enmity with God? whosoever therefore will be a friend of the world is the enemy of God… Draw nigh to God, and He will draw nigh to you. Cleanse your hands, ye sinners; and purify your hearts, ye double minded. Be afflicted, and mourn, and weep: let your laughter be turned to mourning, and your joy to heaviness. Humble yourselves in the sight of the Lord, and He shall lift you up.”

.

Not only does God consider worldly-minded Christians His enemies, but he graciously calls us to a deep repentance and a heart-felt humbling before His throne, crying out to Him for another chance!

.

And so, O man, woman, and child, we have our work cut out for us! There is not a moment to lose! The Evil Day is upon us! There is no more time to dilly-dally in the world! We must continue to beg and plead for God’s grace, until we are firmly standing upon the solid Rock of holiness and victorious Christ-likeness!

Satan’s No Simpleton!

By admin On November 20th, 2021

.

One of the most remarkable sights is revealed when we realize that God has created the stors of the heavens to tell the Gospel story!

.

THE SERPENT OF OLD CONSTELLATION

.

And if one should look in the vicinity of Corona Borealis, he or she might behold a constellation known as the “Serpent of Old Constellation”.

.

It is a very remarkable constellation with jaws made from the very same stars that form the head of that ancient Babylonian constellation, “Draco”.

.

Now, even though the head is the same, the body of Draco is made of completely different stars than the body of this Serpent of Old Constellation. Just the four stars which make up the head of Draco are the very same four stars which form the jaws of the Serpent of Old.

.

ABOVE STAR-CHART – seen late summer into fall only – Serpent Constellation – comprised of the head of Draco, plus stars from the Bootes Constellation – www.signsofheaven.org – not for profit use

Yes, this constellation reminds us of Satan, as he deceived the very first humans, coming in the form of a serpent, convincing them to transgress the one and only law of God given to them to obey!

.

And this Master-Deceiver has been busily deceiving the human race ever since!

.

One way in which he deceives humans is to convince us that he doesn’t even exist. And then he has perpetuated many false ideas about science, specifically designed to explain away his workings, as if they are merely the result of natural occurrences.

.

Mental illnesses are a dramatic illustration of Satan’s genius as he disguises the true cause…devil possession, or devil harassment.

.

Now, another ingenious tactic Satan uses, is to camouflage his attacks by using existing circumstances to misdirect people from realizing the true spiritual nature of his workings.

.

For example, Satan might use a personal tragedy as an opportunity to strike a person with so-called, ‘mental illness’. And then, everybody assumes it was the tragedy or personal loss responsible for the mental illness.

.

Another example of Satan’s sophistry is how he uses the physical appearance or effeminate mannerisms of an individual to provide cover for Satan’s tempting that person into a life of unnatural sexual desires. The result is that people just assume that person’s abhorrent attractions are due to genetic causes, when they are actually the workings of devils!

.

And these and countless other deceptions are enough to convince us that so much of mankind’s troubles are due to natural causes, thus further erasing Satan and his vast unseen armies from any blame for the world’s woes.

.

We humans are so easy to deceive! We just imagine that if Satan does exist, he is no more than some pitch-fork wielding imp in red long-johns! We think that if Satan exists, he’s just some sort of simpleton, when the truth is, that we are the true simpletons! After all, don’t we think that he’s smart enough to cover his tracks? Don’t we understand that if we truly realized that he is “the god of this world”, we would begin to cry out to the true God of Heaven for deliverance?

.

The true worshiper of Christ will hopefully not be “ignorant of his devices”. This world is literally teeming with Satan’s deceptions! And the vast majority of the human race are totally deceived as to the true nature and existence of the spiritual battle raging all around us!

.

Well, the Good News is, that this is still the hour in which we can cry out for heavenly wisdom, and the ability to read, contemplate, and understand the Book which has been given to Mankind…the Holy Bible! And that Book will become our guide-map out of this very deceptive world of selfishness and death! And there awaits a Promised Land in which we will never again be deceived! Because the Devil, Lucifer, will be forever vanquished. He won’t even exist! And in that wonderful Land, we will live forevermore…forever happy, and forever young!

We must remember the Wise Man’s advice…

“Keep thy heart with all diligence;

for out of it are the issues of life. 

Put away from thee a froward mouth,

and perverse lips put far from thee.

Let thine eyes look right on,

and let thine eyelids look straight before thee.

Ponder the path of thy feet,

and let all thy ways be established.

TURN NOT TO THE RIGHT HAND, NOR TO THE LEFT:

remove thy foot from evil.”

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:Thanksgiving-Brownscombe.jpgA NEW NATION WAS FORMED

.

Those who long ago sailed to this fledging nation exhausted from the centuries of religious/civil tyranny in Europe, began what they thought was to be a Christian nation!

.

http://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:Scene_at_the_Signing_of_the_Constitution_of_the_United_States.jpgYes, America was the beginning of a great experiment in freedom of political/religious speech as well as liberty of conscience!

.

And God mercifully gave this nation an incredible constitution: a wonderful gift given by the Almighty, because of cruel tyranny He allowed by the harsh hand of Satan, throughout the various European nations during the centuries of The Dark Ages.

.

And the forefathers of this new nation eventually named it, “The United States of America”.

Revelation 13:1  

.

Of course, Satan didn’t get killed back there in Europe. Nor was his tyrannical Beast-system killed. It merely received a deadly wound, and yet, was eventually healed.

.

But Satan had a new challenge presented to him: how he might possibly infiltrate and eventually destroy this new Christian nation, The USA.

.

Well, that was really no problem! You see, Satan well knew that he would eventually turn this nation into the 2nd Beast of Revelation 13: The False Prophet.

SATAN CAUSES TROUBLE

.

But while God’s people were hoping to make a place of refuge from the wickedness they left behind, Satan was already bringing his own people across the waters: secularists, and pseudo-Christians.

.

And it didn’t take long before he had already stirred up trouble in this young nation: slavery, wars with native Americans, and religious persecution had soon become the order of the day.

.

But the God-given constitution finally prevailed, and after a long struggle, the Constitution ended slavery. And the following decades saw the eventual demise of racism.

.

Oh no, not that this world could ever be perfect! No, but eventually both Native Americans and Black Americans gradually rose in stature, even becoming leaders in their communities, and some even world leaders!

.

This was truly a remarkable accomplishment, thanks be to our Constitution!

“Mercy and truth are met together; righteousness and peace have kissed each other.”

Psalm 85:10 

.

But still, Satan was not going to give up! And because the Bible prophesied that this False Prophet had “two horns as a lamb”, Satan knew he must give this deceiving beast two horns of power like the Lamb of God: Compassion & Morality.

.

Yes, just as Jesus is the very essence of mercy & truth, righteousness & peace, Satan would give this False Prophet those every qualities…yet without the power of God.

“And he (the 2nd Beast) causeth all…that no man might buy or sell, save he that had the mark…of the beast…”

Revelation 13:16, 17 [condensed] 

.

And so, as we now sadly witness this nation become deeply divided, we begin to understand why. This False Prophet was prophesied to begin persecution once again. And just like the first Beast of Revelation, this second Beast would eventually choke off the true and unvarnished Gospel from being preached. And those who refused to conform their characters into the image of Satan’s present-day antichrist world-system would likewise suffer persecution, even death!

.

So, what we are now seeing is a False Prophet Beast with two horns, The DIVIDED States of America!

.

Well, it’s not difficult to realize that this is a very evil and selfish world!

.

https://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:Virgo_(11).jpgAnd so, the real question which should be asked is, “Why does there seem to exist so much supposed goodness in this evil Luciferion world?”

.

This above passage from 2nd Timothy gives us a giant revelation concerning the supposed goodness we see so often: namely, there exists a “form of godliness” in this world, yet entirely separate from true godliness: a counterfeit goodness.

.

This above passage from 2nd Corinthians 11:14, 15, pulls back the curtain on the inner-workings of Satan in this world: that while manifesting himself to the world as a pitchfork wielding mischievous evil-loving demon, his greatest deception is to come in the form of an angel of light, bringing a countless army of human followers who all have the appearance of being “the Good Guys”, yet actually are filled with his antichrist spirit! And that is why there appears to be so much supposed goodness in the world! A façade of morality and kindness!

.

And it is a good Land, a land of peace & harmony & brotherly love, and, “a land flowing with milk and honey”, in which we will truly be forever happy, and forever young!

DRAGON’S WAVE OF WATER

.

.

Dragon of Revelation 12 Constellation

.

In Revelation, the Dragon of Revelation 12 is described as having seven heads, ten horns, and seven crowns. However, the Dragon of Revelation 12 Constellation  up in the night sky does not. But God has faithfully created this wave of water, in such a way, as to illustrate this same concept of the seven heads, ten horns, and seven crowns. Because this wave of water is basically comprised of ten stars.

.

The main body of the wave has seven stars (#’s 1 thru 7, in the sketch), and the tip of the crest of the wave has the other three stars, (#’s 8, 9, 10).

.

So in this wave, we see the same 7/10 numbering found in the Revelation description of the heads/horns/crowns of the Dragon.

.

And this gives us a great clue, as to where in the Bible we should look, to find out the riddle as to just what or who do these 7 heads, 10 crowns, and 7 horns represent. Because, the Bible speaks very much about floods and waters as being associated with Satan (the Dragon).

.

Listen again… “When the waves of death compassed me…THE FLOODS OF UNGODLY MEN made me afraid. The sorrows of Hell compassed me about;” 2nd Samuel 22:5.

.

.

.

.

.

ATHEISM AND THE NUMBER “6”

.

And so, without going into a lengthy discussion, let’s just say that of all the 7 heads of Antichrist, the head which most closely aligns with atheism would logically be the 6th head. And why the 6th head? The Book of Revelation, Chapter 13 warns that the Antichrist Beast has a number of 666. And it describes this number as being the “number of a man”. The number “6” in Scripture has to do with “Man”. It is a number which reminds of the 6th Day of Creation; the day that Man was created. Man was created on the 6th day. And so, Mankind is very much connected with the number “6” 

.

And since atheism is the religion which holds Mankind as the supreme ruler of Earth, then the number “6”, being the number of Man, seems to correspond to the 6th head of Antichrist, very well. 

.

Now these ideas may not be “written in stone”, as the saying goes. And nothing hinges upon, nor falls apart, with or without these theories. But sufficed to say, there is strong evidence that these concepts have biblical support. 

.

And so, this 6th star in the Revelation 12 Dragon’s wave of water, would correspond to the 6th head of the Antichrist Beast. And as already said, “waves” in Scripture, represent the many false ideologies which Satan has flooded the world with, throughout time. So that is why this Signs Of Heaven website believes that atheism was the 6th head of Antichrist.

The spirit of forgiveness

By admin On November 6th, 2021

One night, while lying in bed, Vanessa thinking back on her day, and the conflict she had with a friend. What started out as a little disagreement, soon crescendo-ed into a blowout argument. Of course, the two parted ways in a huff, and each spent the remainder of the day like steaming hot tea-pots!

.

Now, the usual modus-operandi of these two church-going ladies, is to remain in that condition for some days, or even weeks until both became totally simmered down, and ready to resume their friendship.

.

Now, the question is, “Is this the proper conduct for true Christians to engage in? Does forgiveness need time to heal and even days/weeks to forgive?

.

Maybe the Scriptures can offer insight into the matter of forgiveness.

.

Well, if we go to Acts, the true account of Stephen’s stoning death, we see a Christian engaging in instant forgiveness, as he cried out in the midst of his bloody assault…“And he kneeled down, and cried with a loud voice, Lord, lay not this sin to their charge. And when he had said this, he fell asleep.”

.

Another wonderful example is, of course, the words of Jesus, when suffering on that cruel Cross of Calvary…”Then said Jesus, Father, forgive them; for they know not what they do.” Luke 23:34

.

Here above, we see two instances of instant forgiveness! One example by Jesus, and another by a human, Stephen!

.

And so, just how do these examples line up and agree with Scripture?

.

Listen…”And grieve not the Holy Spirit of God, whereby ye are sealed unto the day of redemption. 31Let all bitterness, and wrath, and anger, and clamour, and evil speaking, be put away from you, with all malice: 32And be ye kind one to another, tenderhearted, forgiving one another, even as God for Christ’s sake hath forgiven you.” Ephesians 4:31, 32

.

So here is a passage just jam-packed with spiritual admonition about the heart-condition of the, “true worshippers” of God! And let’s not imagine that such a godly Spirit merely comes and goes. This is to be an ongoing Spirit within a Believer’s heart.

.

Listen again to Paul’s letter to Galatia…But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, longsuffering, gentleness, goodness, faith, Meekness, temperance: against such there is no law. Galatians 5:22, 23

.

And listen to how Galatians comes to an end…18 Brethren, the grace of our Lord Jesus Christ be with your spirit. Amen.”

Daily Devotional, Year 2, December 24 (Liberty of Conscience in the Family)

By admin On November 6th, 2021

.

Genesis 18:19, KJV: “For I (God) know him (Abraham), that he will command his children and his household after him, and they shall keep the way of the LORD, to do justice and judgment; that the LORD may bring upon Abraham that which he hath spoken of him.”

.

God has put us in a world in which we all want to have things our own way.

.

In centuries past, the family was often ruled over by the stern hand of the father. Divorces were rare and family members knew they had to obey when in the sight of the father.

.

Fast-forward into our current-day society. The father does not enjoy such supreme authority. Maybe in some other cultures. But not the western nations so much. And decreasingly so in all cultures, pretty much.

.

As a matter of fact, it is not uncommon for the wife to be the head of the household.

.

Yes, we live in a very different world today. Oh no, not that this world was ever a good place. But as evil and selfish as things have always been, it has been devolving even more in these last years.

.

But for the Christian home, things should be much closer to Heaven’s way of governing. In other words, the Christian father and mother should take their respective roles, bringing up their children wisely and patiently and godly.

.

Well, at least that’s the way it should be. But of course, it isn’t that way…most of the time. Yes, most of the time, one spouse is probably closer to the Lord than the other spouse. And so, it is not uncommon for there to be continual contention between husband and wife, over many issues.

.

And in most cases, the children have been greatly influenced by outside associations (TV Internet, radio…and even comic books, friends, public schooling, etc…)

.

And so, needless to say, family life in the west has become very complicated for all, but especially for the Christian!

.

Quite often, the newer Christian is very zealous to “command his (or her) children and his household after him”, just like faithful Abraham.

.

But more often than not, the new Believer soon discovers that in today’s world, “the god of this world” has worked 24/7/365 to destroy the family unit, making things extremely difficult, especially for Christians!

We Wrestle Not Against Flesh & Blood! Part 7, “How To Catch A Serial Killer”

To read part 1, go here…JANUARY 15 (We Wrestle Not Against Flesh & Blood!)

.

.

.

.

.

“For we wrestle not against flesh and blood,

but against principalities, against powers,

against the rulers of the darkness of this world,

against spiritual wickedness in high places.”

Ephesians 6:12

.

.

.

Yesterday was the 4th bombing by an unknown serial killer. Hundreds of FBI agents are now employed to discover the identity and location of this mad-man. He must be apprehended! He must be stopped!

.

Yes, it is heart-breaking to read about these insane and unthinkable atrocities which seem to be occurring with ever-increasing frequency!

.

How can a human being commit such heinous deeds against a fellow human being!? It’s simply beyond most people’s comprehension! And these murderers deserve to be punished under the full penalty of the law!

FLESH AND BLOOD NOT THE ACTUAL ENEMY

.

http://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:Paradise_Lost_3.jpgSo how does the FBI catch such monsters as this current serial bomber?

.

Listen…“For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places.” Ephesians 6:12

.

Here is the true serial bomber: Satan.

OUR TRUE ENEMY: SATAN

.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:Martin,_John_-_Satan_presiding_at_the_Infernal_Council_-_1824.JPGYes, the true culprit in this insane crime-series is not a mere human. It is actually the, “the rulers of the darkness of this world”, as Ephesians 6:12 reveals!

.

“Well, that’s probably true and good information.”, someone will undoubtedly say. “But that knowledge doesn’t stop this human mad-man from committing more of these atrocities!”

.

No, it doesn’t solve this crime, nor stops this killer from committing more murders.

.

.

.

“IF MY PEOPLE…”

.

But the Bible does give the remedy for how to stop this ever-increasing crime-wave which is now escalating on a daily basis.

.

Listen… “If I (the Lord) shut up heaven that there be no rain, or if I command the locusts to devour the land, or if I send pestilence among My people; If My people, which are called by My name, shall humble themselves, and pray, and seek my face, and turn from their wicked ways; then will I hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin, and will heal their land.” 2nd Chronicles 7:13, 14

.

We live in a land in which many citizens claim to be Christians. This nation is filled with many churches, and even more church-goers. And yet, 2nd Chronicles seems to be an unfulfilled promise. We live in a unhealed and sin-sick land.

2ND CHRONICLES: AN UNFULFILLED PROMISE 

.http://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:USMC-06831.jpg

So how can we as a people claim this great and precious promise found in 2nd Chronicles 7:13, 14?

.

Well, the obvious answer is, that God’s people must repent and turn to the Lord in fasting and sackcloth!

.

That’s the tried-and-true Bible method to attain the mercy and blessing of God.

REPENTANCE: AN INDIVIDUAL ACTION

.

But we simply cannot wait for the churches to engage in some sort of national http://sfrolov.livejournal.com/repentance.

.

No, God now works on a case-by-case basis! True repentance begins when a Christian wipes away the fog from his or her bathroom mirror. In other words, God is only interested in you and I beginning our own personal revival.

“TURN YE, TURN YE!”

Ezekiel 33:11

.

Listen to God’s curse, and to His prescribed remedy…Turn you at My reproof: behold, I will pour out My spirit unto you, I will make known My words unto you. Because I have called, and ye refused; I have stretched out My hand, and no man https://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:USMC-081218-M-4507D-001.jpgregarded…I also will laugh at your calamity; I will mock when your fear cometh; When your fear cometh as desolation, and your destruction cometh as a whirlwind; when distress and anguish cometh upon you…But whoso hearkeneth unto Me shall dwell safely, and shall be quiet from fear of evil.” (Read entire passage of Proverbs 1:20-33 click here)

.

Here is the remedy for a society under the curse of God. And let’s face it folks! If ever there was a society under God’s curse, we are it!

.

If ever there was a time for God’s professed people to return to the Lord with fasting and sackcloth (spiritually speaking), it is now!

.

And if there was ever a moment for this miserable wretch to get off his lazy-boy recliner and begin to “pray without ceasing” for spiritual revival, this is it!

“Ye adulterers and adulteresses,

know ye not that the friendship of the world

is enmity with God?

whosoever therefore will be a friend of the world

is the enemy of God…

Draw nigh to God, and He will draw nigh to you.

Cleanse your hands, ye sinners;

and purify your hearts, ye double minded.

Be afflicted, and mourn, and weep:

let your laughter be turned to mourning,

and your joy to heaviness.

Humble yourselves in the sight of the Lord,

and He shall lift you up.”

TODAY’S FEATURED HEAVENLY SIGN

SIGN IN HEAVEN

.

Well, If you look up and lift up your head, you just might see a wonderful sign, which God spoke about in Revelation 12. It is a constellation of a woman. The ancients only saw it as a great bear. It is commonly known as Ursa Major . It is also known as the 7 Stars (aka, The Big Dipper), but with the addition of various other stars.

.

But with the eye of faith, it actually appears as the Revelation 12 Woman. You see, God has placed in the heavens, the symbol of His bride, the Church-Faithful.

.

Listen… “And there appeared a great wonder (sign) in heaven; a woman…And she being with child cried, travailing in birth, and pained to be delivered…And to the woman were given two wings of a great eagle, that she might fly into the wilderness, into her place… from the face of the serpent. Revelation 12:1, 2, 14.

.

.

.

.

.

TRAVAILING IN SUMMER, FLEEING IN WINTER

.

star-chart ursa major

.

In the summer night-sky, Just as this passage says, she appears as the woman-in-travail. But in the winter, she flips upside-down, to appear as the Fleeing Woman of Revelation 12, just as this passage states. But whether this Virtuous Woman is in labor pains, or fleeing to the mountains, she is the heavenly icon of God’s bride, His Church.

.

And now we need to explore how this fleeing woman in the heavens relates to us, the Church. Just like this fleeing woman, we too, need to flee from the wrath to come. But how do we flee? And where do we flee to? Well just read this article and you will find out exactly what the Bible has to say about all this.

How a Joke Killed! Part 2-b: “An Antichrist Spirit”

To go to Part 1, click here… ” JANUARY 10th (How a Joke Killed!)”

.

.

.

.

.

On the morning of that fearful day, when God destroyed Sodom and its surrounding cities, the main character of that story, Lot, tried to warn his sons-in-law to flee from the wrath to come!

.

But his sons-in-law didn’t believe him! They thought he was just joking!

.

Listen… “And Lot went out, and spake unto his sons in law, which married his daughters, and said, Up, get you out of this place; for the LORD will destroy this city. But he seemed as one that mocked unto his sons in law.” Genesis 19:14

.

Perhaps Lot’s sons-in-law were accustomed to hearing Lot make such mocking jests, previous to this fateful morning!

.

Yes, maybe Lot had a reputation of being somewhat of a joker. Maybe Lot was the type who enjoyed a good gag, previous to this solemn moment! Maybe Lot was the type who enjoyed a good laugh!

.

.

.

.

.

.

FOOLISH TALK & JESTING

.

Now, the Bible does not promote being a joker or a jester! Quite the opposite!

.

Listen… “But fornication, and all uncleanness, or covetousness, let it not be once named among you, as becometh saints; Neither filthiness, nor foolish talking, nor jesting, which are not convenient: but rather giving of thanks…Let no man deceive you with vain words: for because of these things cometh the wrath of God upon the children of disobedience.” Ephesians 5:3, 4, 6

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:PS_Kr%C3%B8yer_-_Hip_hip_hurra!_Kunstnerfest_p%C3%A5_Skagen_1888.jpg

.

Combine this above passage with the following passage from the same epistle… “Wherein in time past ye walked according to the course of this world, according to the prince of the power of the air, the spirit that now worketh in the children of disobedience:” Ephesians 2:2

.

Can you see the common thread between these two above passages? The common thread is that both passages are speaking of, “children of disobedience”! Yes, those jesters in Ephesians 5:3, 4, 6 are the same group which are indwelt by the “prince  of the power of the air…that spirit that now works in the children of disobedience” found in Ephesians 2:2

.

Now that bit of information should make us think twice about imitating this joking and jesting world!

.

NOT IGNORANT OF SATAN’S DEVICES!

.

Now, the Bible says… “Lest Satan should get an advantage of us: for we are not ignorant of his devices.” 2nd Corinthians 2:11.

TV indoctrination

.

No, as this above verse reveals, we are not ignorant of Satan’s devices! And so, with such a spiritual insight, we can look around at this Antichrist society and realize that the Devil is very much more than just an innocent bystander! Satan is not just sitting on the sidelines, as some suppose: merely observing the goings-on of Mankind.

.

Nor does Satan take time off, so he can go on vacations!

.

Rather, Satan works around the clock, deceiving and making this world as seductive as he possibly can! He is a relentless warrior, seeking to destroy both Christians and their children, too!

.

And, as Ephesians, Ch. 2 reveals, Satan is busy working in the lives of the unconverted… according to the prince of the power of the air, the spirit THAT NOW WORKETH in the children of disobedience:” Ephesians 2:2

.

.

.

.

.

USEFUL PAWNS IN SATAN’S GAME OF CHESS

.

Satan is the ardent foe of Heaven! He’s the true “mover and shaker” of this world! And he and his countless followers will use any and every unconverted human heart as “useful pawns” in his subtle attacks on Christians!

.

Whether it be a king, or a pauper, a “professional”, or a common laborer, a business tycoon, or a teacher, a pastor or a parishioner, a doctor, or a patient, a poet or a musician, a classical composer, or a pop singer, a political figure or a comedian: No unconverted human being is beyond Satan’s reach!

.

And just as he used unconverted Peter, he too will use you or me, if he possibly can! And just as he received permission to sift Peter as wheat, so will he do to any yet unconverted Follower of Jesus!

https://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:1-Luzifer.jpgLucifer was the gifted musician back in Heaven, prior to being thrust down to earth! So don’t imagine for a moment that he doesn’t employ his “talents” down here!

.

Yes, there are many “gifted” humans who seem to pour out their artistic creations like an overflowing river! Literary artists, musicians, business “geniuses”, scientists, scholars, actors, and yes, even comedians!

.

But what both the people of the world, and Christians alike are so hesitant to admit or recognize, is that this evil genius, Satan, is the true inspiration in this, his kingdom! And we are merely his useful pawns, in his game of chess, because Satan is that, “spirit THAT NOW WORKETH in the children of disobedience:”!

.

LET US NOT BE DECEIVED!

.

And we must not allow ourselves to be ignorant of Satan’s devices, as he glorifies his own selfish kingdom, by such creations! After all, it is by these loyal citizens, and their creations, whom he uses to deceive, ensnare, and bind our hearts to this proud and selfish world! We hear all that beautiful music, and our hearts are further entwined to this world! The story-tellers weave their intriguing tales, making this selfish world appear so inviting, and even magical, at times! The inventors “discover” some new invention, and we and our children become willing slaves to these electronic devices!

.

No, they are merely being used by “the god of this world”, the Devil, as he weaves his world-wide spider web of deception and seductive entrapments, casting us into his prison-house of sin and selfishness!

.

.

.

.

.

.

SOME VERY GOOD NEWS!

.

Now there is some very Good News in the midst of all this bad news! Yes, if we have been used by Satan in the past, there is much hope for the future! The Lord can turn our failure into victory, and transform our life of sin into our testimony of God’s love and mercy!

.

And God can deliver us from such overpowering habits, such as this pleasure of the mind called “joking”, “jesting”, or  a “sense of humor”.

.

Oh yes, it may take much resistance to finally get Satan to cease from whispering these jests in our ears! It probably will take months of resisting the Devil, before he will finally flee away, in this area of sin! Funny jests will often pop up in our mind! Clever comments will tempt us to utter them to our hearers!

.

But we have a commission to warn the world of the coming Day of God! And only a loving, Christlike character will allow Christ to work in us and through us, to sound the trumpet, that the great Day of God has finally arrived!

FINALLY WALKING UPWARD INTO THE HIGHWAYS OF ETERNITY

.

Day by day, you will find yourself walking, like the Disciples, spreading the precious Gospel seed wherever the Spirit leads.

http://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:ThomasCole-Pilgrim_Cross_End.jpg

.

Taking the lovely name of Jesus, with every word spoken. Walking through this sin-darkened world, witnessing to those who take notice that of a truth, Jesus is present within you. Even like faithful Enoch, walking through the highways and byways of life in this world, spreading the Gospel-seed of unpretentious love.

.

Day by day, you will become more and more closed in with God. Moment by moment, your heart will become intertwined with God’s heart, eventually two hearts beating as one heart.

.

And just like Enoch, when the appointed time of sojourning on earth is finally done…you will walk onward…and upward…and into the highways and byways of eternity. (“And Enoch walked with God: and he was not; for God took him.” Genesis 5:24).

The Two Spirits In The World, Part 2: “You’ve Got To Serve Somebody!”

To read Part 1 of this series, click here…November 23 (The Two Spirits In The World)

.

.

.

.

A few decades ago, a poet/songster of the world wrote the following lines…

.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:Martin,_John_-_Satan_presiding_at_the_Infernal_Council_-_1824.JPG“You may be an ambassador to England or France,
You may like to gamble, you might like to dance,
You may be the heavyweight champion of the world,
You may be a socialite with a long string of pearls…”

.

[Chorus:]

“But you’re gonna have to serve somebody, yes
Indeed you’re gonna have to serve somebody,
Well, it may be the Devil or it may be the Lord
But you’re gonna have to serve somebody…”

.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:Martin,_John_-_Satan_presiding_at_the_Infernal_Council_-_1824.JPG“You might be a rock ‘n’ roll addict prancing on the stage,
You might have drugs at your command, women in a cage,
You may be a business man or
Some high degree thief,
They may call you Doctor or they may call you Chief”

.

[Chorus:]
“But you’re gonna have to serve somebody, yes
Indeed you’re gonna have to serve somebody,
Well, it may be the Devil or it may be the Lord
But you’re gonna have to serve somebody…”

.

EITHER THE DEVIL OR THE LORD!

 

.

Now these are pretty good lines for somebody from the world! And these words go very well with today’s devotional about the two spirits in the world!

.

Yes, indeed, each one of us must choose just who it is we will serve. And as this song says, “Well, it may be the Devil, or it may be the Lord!” But we each must serve somebody!

.

And it doesn’t matter who we are, either. We can be the lowest of the low! Or we might be the highest of the high! But each of us must serve somebody, either the Devil or the Lord!

.

Yes, indeed, we’re gonna have to serve somebody!

You see, as Part 1 of this little series, “The Two Spirits In The World”, the truth was focused on that the Bible tells us that we will be indwelt by one of two spirits: either we will be indwelt by the Spirit of Holiness, or we will be indwelt by the spirit of the world. One or the other. No third alternative!

.

So not only must we serve one or the other master, but we are actually indwelt by one or the other spirit!

“THAT SPIRIT THAT NOW WORKS IN THE CHILDREN OF DISOBEDIENCE”

.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:Martin,_John_-_Satan_presiding_at_the_Infernal_Council_-_1824.JPGListen to this startling verse which reveals that Satan’s spirit is within unsaved mankind…“Wherein in time past ye walked according to the course of this world, according to the prince of the power of the air, the spirit that now worketh in the children of disobedience:” Ephesians 2:2

.

And so, this verse reveals that Satan is the spirit that now works in the children of disobedience.

.

But this isn’t the only Bible passage that reveals this truth…

“THEY ARE OF THE WORLD”

.

http://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:Shoppers_on_Dundas,_near_Yonge.jpgJust listen to this next passage concerning the two spirits…“They (Antichrists) are of the world: therefore speak they of the world, and the world heareth them. We are of God: he that knoweth God heareth us; he that is not of God heareth not us. Hereby know we the Spirit of Truth, and the Spirit of Error.” 1st John 4:5, 6

.

Here is seen that the spirit of this world is the spirit of Antichrist! And this Antichrist spirit is the spirit of error. But those who are of the Spirit of Truth can speak to those who are of the spirit of error, but they will not hear! They cannot hear, because they are of a different spirit!

MANY DECEIVED ONES IN THE CHURCH!

.

Now there are many faithful church-going parishioners who believe that they are indwelt by the Spirit of Truth.

.

As a matter of fact, nearly the entire Christian nation around the world believes that they are indwelt by the Holy Spirit of Truth.

.

But the Bible makes no such statement. As a matter of fact the Bible says just the opposite…

.

Listen…“Not every one that saith unto Me, Lord, Lord, shall enter into the kingdom of heaven; but he that doeth the will of My Father which is in Heaven. Many will say to Me in that day, Lord, Lord, have we not prophesied in Thy name? and in Thy name have cast out devils? and in Thy name done many wonderful works? And then will I profess unto them, I never knew you: depart from Me, ye that work iniquity!” Matthew 7:21-23

MANY DECEIVED ONES!

.

In this above passage from Matthew, Jesus presents a very sad and terrifying, but very real truth: that on the great Day of Judgment, there will be many deceived former church-goers, who thought they were signed-sealed-and-delivered-saints when back on earth.

.

But as they finally stand before God on that fearful Day, they will be shocked to discover that their religion was altogether worthless!

.

.

.

.

.

HOW CAN I HAVE THE BLESSED ASSURANCE?http://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:At_a_loss.svg

.

So just how can we know that we are truly indwelt by the Holy Spirit of Truth? How can a Christian have the blessed assurance that he or she is truly on the highway to Heaven?

TRIALS, PRAYERS, AND PRECIOUS PROMISES

.

Listen to Jesus as He addresses the worldly-minded Church at Laodicea…“I counsel thee to buy of http://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:US_Navy_040327-N-1261P-058_Navy_Chaplain,_Lt._Marc_Massie_assigned_to_Naval_Mobile_Construction_Battalion_Seventy_Four_(NMCB-74)_studies_his_Bible_for_an_upcoming_service.jpgme gold tried in the fire (fiery trials which removes the dross of worldliness), that thou mayest be rich; and white raiment (Garments of Salvation), that thou mayest be clothed, and that the shame of thy nakedness do not appear; and anoint thine eyes with eyesalve (the knowledge of God’s Word), that thou mayest see.” Revelation 3:18

.

Of course, the parenthetical statements inserted in this above passage from Revelation 3:18 are added by the Editor of this website.

.

But this spiritual remedy which was originally given to the Church of the Laodiceans is just as needful today by double-minded Laodicean Christians!

PURIFIED BY FIRE, NOURISHED BY HIS WORD, SAVED BY GRACE

http://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:USMC-06831.jpg

Yes, we must beg and plead for God to send us through fiery tribulations, that we may one day come forth as purified gold!

.

And we must continually beg for God to save us, and deliver us from our own apathy!

.

And finally, we must beg and plead for God to give us a love and burning desire for daily Bible study and constant meditation of His Word!

AS PURIFIED GOLD

And so, once God mercifully begins to bring us through fiery trials, and gives us a genuine love for the countless precious promises found throughout the Old and New Testaments.

.

And once we begin to love to spend many hours searching the Scriptures, and contemplating them, day and night.

.

Then and only then will we begin to have the assurance that God is truly working in us, “to will, and to do of His good pleasure!” Philippians 2:13

“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

 

Valley of Decision + O Destroying Mountain Constellation Group

.

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

On a Thursday morning, the residents of Paradise California woke up to perhaps one of the rudest awakenings in modern history, as the alarm of fire sounded, causing a frantic scrambling to escape for their very lives through raging killer flames!

.

The beautiful little forest community was all but destroyed, causing nearly 100 tragic deaths!

.

Nearly 20,000 buildings destroyed!

.

Almost the entire town now lay desolate!

.

The entire community being displaced, having to take refuge wherever they could!

PARADISE LOST

.

This obvious analogy between Paradise California and Milton’s infamous book, Paradise Lost has not escaped the notice of the public. 

.

And the horrific and tragic fire which destroyed almost the entire community of Paradise has been described as “apocalyptic” in nature, as it was so unbelievable, that it took the collective breath away from the horrified, onlooking public!

GLOBAL WARMING?

.http://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:Earth_On_Stove.png

There has been an alarm sounding for several decades now, concerning global warming.

.

Day and night, the media has been warning the world that our technology and industry has created an increase in global temperature.

.

Earth On Stove – Wikimedia – Public Domain

.

.

.

.

.

IS THE PLANET WARMING, COOLING…OR BOTH?

.

http://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:At_a_loss.svg

Well, of course, there is an ongoing debate as to whether or not the globe has been going through a number of years of global cooling now. Certainly in some areas of our land, there has been severe drought for a number of years. So instead of calling it “Global Warming”, they now call it “Climate Change”, which allows for cold spells as well as hot spells, allowing much leeway and shelter for defenders of this theory.

.

But just how significant the role that technology and industry plays in affecting the climate has also been part of the current ongoing debate.

.

But perhaps it’s true. Yes, maybe our powerful high-tech/industrial world does indeed affect the climate.

.

But the truth is, nobody actually knows for certain (even though many claim they know for sure).

.

.

CLIMATE CHANGE IN CENTURIES PAST

.

However, the fact is, regional drought and even warming is nothing new.

https://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:Global_warming_illustration.jpg.

Yes, throughout history there has been warming in certain areas.

.

For instance, during the warming of one particular part of the globe, long extinct ancient villages and remnants of ancient forests have been exposed from the receding glacier ice in those areas.

.

Also, the Bible reveals that much of the Middle East was once very lush, tropical forests and meadows, such as ancient Israel. And the ancient city-state of Babylon was probably another area which was once very lush and green during the days of Nebuchadnezzar, before it finally became a barren desert as it is, even now.

“He turneth…a…fruitful land into barrenness, for the wickedness of them that dwell therein.”

.

But just what was the source of that global warming back in those days? After all, there was no industrial technology back in https://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:Cracked_earth_in_the_Rann_of_Kutch.jpgthose past millenniums.

.

Well, the Bible reveals one very important truth about climate change in Psalm 107:33, 34…“He turneth rivers into a wilderness, and the watersprings into dry ground; A fruitful land into barrenness, for the wickedness of them that dwell therein.”

.

Here we realize that it is God who sometimes punishes a culture’s immorality by turning its luscious greenery into dry desert.

.

It’s just very sad that this current-day atheistic culture no longer understands nor assents to these proven Bible truths, unlike many of the western culture’s Christian forefathers, who fully believed these truths!

“He turneth…dry ground into watersprings.”

.

http://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:Elakala_Waterfalls_Swirling_Pool_Mossy_Rocks.jpgFurthermore, should a society return from its licentious and/or its unjust/violent ways, God can certainly reverse that judgment…

.

Listen again to this same Psalm 107…“He turneth the wilderness into a standing water, and dry ground into watersprings. And there He maketh the hungry to dwell, that they may prepare a city for habitation; And sow the fields, and plant vineyards, which may yield fruits of increase.” Psalm 107:35, 36

.

And so, whatever the reason for our current global warming (or “global cooling”, as many other meteorologists insist) which is now occurring, God can easily bless a nation which returns in full and true repentance back to Heaven’s ways! As the above Psalm 107 affirms, God can easily turn, the wilderness into a standing water, and dry ground into watersprings.

.

The great question which must be answered is simply this: “Are we willing to turn to Him for help? Will this unbelieving and antichrist society ever return back from our rebellion against Heaven?”

And so, we shouldn’t be surprised when we see so many forests go up in flames. After all, the Bible declares that the end-times are a day of fire…“But the heavens and the earth, which are now, by the same word are kept in store, reserved unto fire against the day of judgment and perdition of ungodly men.” 2nd Peter 3:7

And the people of that little California community are no more wicked than the rest of us sinners!

.

But their horrible tragedy is perhaps just a small foretaste of the pandemic judgment reserved into fire, kept in-store for all of us in the near future.

And the call is now going out to every man, woman, and child to renounce this world of selfishness and sin, and begin the spiritual sojourn to the New Heavens and the New Earth in which we will be forever happy, and forever young!

LOOSING THE BANDS OF ORION

.

God spoke several times of Orion, in Scripture. His question to Job was a very mystifying question, to say the least… “Canst thou…loose the bands of Orion?” Job 38:31. Such a strange question, indeed! How could a constellation have its bands loosed, much less, even have bands? Puzzling, puzzling!

.

But now, He is revealing this bright and beautiful constellation in a way that has never before been seen. God Himself is loosing Orion’s bands, as He is just now unraveling this age-old mystery. And we are beginning to understand that this most infamous of all constellations is nothing less than a remarkable metaphor concerning Jesus.

.

THE 5 OFFICES OF ORION

.

But like most of the other Signs which this website reveals, Orion too, has much more to say as he changes his position in the sky. And this Soldier in the Heavens puts on different garb, as he presents the five awesome aspects of his various offices. From ‘Orion the Soldier’, and ‘Orion the Reaper’and ‘Orion the Archer’and ‘The Cross of Orion’, and last but certainly not least, “Orion, The Good Shepherd”. This amazing constellation presents a very complex revelation of the God’s magnificent love for a fallen planet.

.

So read on and discover, “things which have been kept secret from the foundation of the world.” Matthew 13:35

How To Be Hidden in the Day of Wrath

How To Be Hidden in the Day of Wrath

.

.

.

.

.

.

“Come, My people, enter thou into thy chambers,

and shut thy doors about thee:

hide thyself as it were for a little moment,

until the indignation be overpast.

For, behold, the LORD cometh out of His place

to punish the inhabitants of the earth for their iniquity:

the earth also shall disclose her blood,

and shall no more cover her slain”

Isaiah 26:20, 21

.

.

.

.

.

.

 “O my people, they which lead thee cause thee to err, and destroy the way of thy paths”

Isaiah 3:12

https://theheavensdeclare.net/the-fleeing-revelation-12-woman-constellation-the-message-of-habakkuk/.

For those who have finally arrived at the stark realization that God isn’t going to Rapture the Church out of the world, just prior to all Hell breaking loose in the final conflict, the following question must be answered: “How can I be hidden from the wrath to come?”

.

Yes, there are many sincere Christians who are now coming to the realization that they had been deceived by their teachers into believing that God’s people would be literally removed from the earth, just prior to the Book of Revelation being fulfilled.

.

And now that “all Hell is breaking loose”, right before our very eyes, it is becoming increasingly difficult to cling to this phantom church-doctrine, based upon the non-existent, non-biblical title, “The Pre-Tribulation Rapture”!

.

“When righteous men do rejoice, there is great glory: but when the wicked rise, a man is hidden.”

Proverbs 28:12 

http://www.muskegonartmuseum.org/collections-gallery/gallery.

But this particular article is dedicated to those who are striving to be hidden in the day of God’s anger. And by carefully reading this article, one can learn just how and just where to build the perfect shelter from the approaching storm.

.

The people of the world, who call themselves “Preppers”, know how to build bunkers. They know how to supply their food water, air, money, ammunition, self-defense, etc., so as to be safe during the soon-coming storm.

.

And it might be wise to observe what these “Preppers” do and apply it spiritually for the benefit of all of God’s people who happen to be, “Spiritual Preppers”.

.

LOCATION, LOCATION, LOCATION

https://theheavensdeclare.net/woman-flees-to-the-wilderness/.

Now, the first step in becoming safe and well-hidden during the approaching crisis is to choose the perfect location for one’s spiritual bunker. Location is of utmost importance! It cannot be stressed enough, just how critically important is the choosing of one’s bunker location for his or her safety and survival! And, many preppers opt for some mountainous hideaway.

.

Listen to Scripture’s advice…“Who among us shall dwell with the devouring fire? who among us shall dwell with everlasting burnings?…He shall dwell on high: his place of defence shall be the munitions of rocks: bread shall be given him; his waters shall be sure. Thine eyes shall see the King in His beauty: they shall behold the Land that is very far off. ” Isaiah 33:14, 16, 17

.

As you can see from this passage, just how important it is to choose a mountainous location, even one which has a view of “the Land that is very far off”! And the “munitions of rocks” (Bible verses) are also a must as a place of defense!

.

And listen to this next verse…But they that escape of them shall escape, and shall be on the mountains like doves of the valleys, all of them mourning, every one for his iniquity.” Ezekiel 7:16

.

This above passage from Ezekiel describes the very time we’re now entered into. It is a time of repentance and mourning for the past years of our foolish mingling with the world. And it speaks of fleeing to the mountains, just like the first three Gospels likewise speak of fleeing…And when ye shall see Jerusalem compassed with armies, then know that the desolation thereof is nigh. Then let them which are in Judaea flee to the mountains; and let them which are in the midst of it depart out; and let not them that are in the countries enter thereinto.” Luke 21:20, 21

https://theheavensdeclare.net/woman-flees-to-the-wilderness/

.

These two passages both say the same thing, howbeit, in spiritual allegorical language. God’s people realize that they and their children have been led astray by the secular world and by worldly Christians. But God now calls His true sheep to, “Come out of her, My people, that ye partake not of her sins, and receive not of her plagues” Revelation 18:4

.

And so, these verses (plus many more similar verses in Scripture) all tell us to, “escape to the mountain, lest thou be consumed.” Genesis 19:17

.

And so, the absolute best possible location for God’s people is in mountainous strongholds!

.

.

.

.

.

.

.

WALKING THROUGH DANGEROUS MINE-FIELDS, ETC….

.

Every “Prepper” knows the importance of making a safe pathway to his or her mountainous stronghold. And also, a good map and trusty compass are essential items to carry on this uphill climb to safety.

.

And the spiritual prepper likewise knows that traveling during this time of trouble can be very dangerous. And so, a very critically important part of making it through to safety is to have a safe route, guide-map and compass for this uphill trek. 

.

Listen…“Concerning the works of men, by the Word of Thy lips I have kept me from the paths of the destroyer.” Psalm 17:4 

.

Here is the map and compass which the spiritual prepper needs to safely journey through the many obstacles which undoubtedly will be encountered!

.

Listen again…“Whereby are given unto us exceeding great and precious promises: that by these ye might be partakers of the divine nature, having escaped the corruption that is in the world through lust.” 2nd Peter 1:4 

.

Again, it is through the many “exceeding great and precious promises” found in God’s Word, that the spiritual prepper can safely navigate through the pitfalls, evil beasts, and other such lurking dangers along this upward path.

Now, once we establish our mountainous location, comes the rather laborious process of building our shelter, our bunker. And most preppers will spend much time and energy building their bunker.

.

Of course, the King James Bible does not use the name, “bunker”. Instead, we read of “chambers”. Listen…“Come, My people, enter thou into thy chambers, and shut thy doors about thee: hide thyself as it were for a little moment, until the indignation be overpast.” Isaiah 26:20

http://www.muskegonartmuseum.org/collections-gallery/gallery.

Here is a warning from God to enter into our chambers till the “indignation” is passed over. Sounds like a storm shelter, doesn’t it?

.

Well, in a very real sense, it is a shelter from the storm…“Behold, a King shall reign in righteousness…And a Man shall be as an hiding place from the wind, and a covert from the tempest; as rivers of water in a dry place, as the shadow of a great rock in a weary land.” Isaiah 32:1, 2

.

Here is established the necessity for a bunker, that is, a shelter from the approaching time of trouble.

 FRESH AIR SUPPLY

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

Now, when building our bunker, our shelter, three things are necessary: food, water, and air. Every wise prepper understands the necessity of these existential elements.

.

So let’s explore just what must be done to supply an abundance of fresh air…“The wind blows wherever it pleases. You hear its sound, but you cannot tell where it comes from or where it is going. So it is with everyone born of the Spirit.” John 3:8.

.

So here is where our supply of fresh air comes from, just as it is written…“And when He [Jesus] had said this, He breathed on them, and said unto them, Receive ye the Holy Spirit’” (John 20:22).

.

Here is the very best and purest air supply one can obtain for this coming tribulation!

PURE WATER SUPPLY

http://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:A_Family_of_Deer_in_a_Landscape_with_a_Waterfall.jpg.

The next step in construction of our bunker, is to have an abundant supply of pure water…

“He that believeth on Me, as the scripture hath said, out of his belly shall flow rivers of living water.” John 7:38

Here is the best possible means of having fresh, clean, and pure water.

.

Here is a fantastic way to get all the water you could ever wish for…“But whosoever drinketh of the water that I shall give him shall never thirst; but the water that I shall give him shall be in him a well of water springing up into everlasting life.” John 4:14

.

And of course, we can’t forget that wonderful promise from Isaiah 33:16…He shall dwell on high: his place of defence shall be the munitions of rocks: bread shall be given him; his waters shall be sure.

.

And so, these passages assure us that water should not be a problem at all!

FOOD STORAGE

https://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:Emergency_Rations01a.jpg.

There are numerous companies advertising emergency-food-supply-kits for those “Preppers” who see the importance of being prepared for whatever crisis comes their way. And the “Spiritual Prepper” must likewise imitate those preppers of the world, who prepare themselves for emergencies.

.

And so, every wise prepper must have an abundant supply of food to make it through the approaching crisis: such foods as “the bread of life”, “the fruit of the Spirit”, and “the milk of the Word”, as well as “the meat of the Word”. (John 6:48, Galatians 5:22, 1st Peter 2:2, Hebrews 5:13, 14)

AMMUNITION

http://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:Salpa_line_bunker_360_antitank_gun_outside.jpg.

Every wise Prepper knows the importance of being well-armed. A large cache of weapons such as rifles, knives, hand-guns should be properly stored to defend against whatever enemy comes against them. But the Spiritual Prepper fully understands that, The weapons we fight with are not the weapons of the world. On the contrary, they have divine power to demolish strongholds.” 2nd Corinthians 10:4

.

Yes, the Spiritual Prepper should have “two swords” (i.e., The Old & New Testaments…Luke 22:38).

.

Ephesians 6 likewise refers to them as “the sword of the Spirit, which is the Word of God”. But the Prepper also needs, “the shield of faith in which to extinguish the fiery darts of the wicked one”. Along with the “breastplate of righteousness, and the helmet of Salvation”, that Spiritual Prepper should be prepared for any attack from the enemy! (see Ephesians 6 for these verses)

STORING UP A GOLD & SILVER RESERVE

https://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:Goldkey_logo_removed.jpg.

No wise Prepper would neglect to have a supply of silver and gold on hand, and the Spiritual Prepper should likewise have his or her own supply of spendable riches…

.

Listen…“Acquaint now thyself with Him, and be at peace: thereby good shall come unto thee. Receive, I pray thee, the law from His mouth, and lay up His words in thine heart….Then shalt thou lay up gold as dust, and the gold of Ophir as the stones of the brooks. Yea, the Almighty shall be thy defence, and thou shalt have plenty of silver.” Job 22:21-25

.

Here is all the gold and silver you will need through the coming crisis! The Word of God!

SELF DEFENSE

.

Today’s Preppers know the importance of self-defense. And as the crisis worsens they realize that hand-to-hand combat may become their only means of survival. Taekwondo, Karate, fisticuffs, kick-boxing, are just a few of the ways in which Preppers prepare for the coming crisis.

.

And those who are Spiritual Preppers understand that the art of wrestling will definitely be required in the coming days and months…“For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places.” Ephesians 6:12

.

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

Yes, our skill and perseverance in the art of wrestling will become a necessity in the near future. Even one of our spiritual fathers, Jacob, “wrestled a man with him until the breaking of the day.” Genesis 32:24 And God used Jacob as a picture of our soon-coming engagement! (read the article, Today’s Devotional – July 13th (Time of Jacob’s Trouble, Part 1: “Alone With God!”))

.

Yes, the Spiritual Prepper must learn to perseveringly wrestle in the prayer, faith, and patience, which will all be required to make it through the long night ahead!

.

The Enemy will attempt to discourage the Spiritual Prepper to the point of giving up. And so, it will be necessary to wrestle with the Angel of the Lord for blessing and strength to persevere until the Dawning of the Day!

1st John 5:4  

.

Now this little exercise in spiritualizing the things of the world, converting them into Heavenly truths, gives us a wise plan for the coming conflict. And yet, we have a precious promise for our assured victory…“Being confident of this very thing, that He which hath begun a good work in you will perform it until the day of Jesus Christ:” Philippians 1:6 

.

Yes, our victory is sure, because that victory was won on our behalf on the hill called Calvary!

Sodom Rising, Part 18: “Planet Earth: Earthly, Sensual, Devilish!”

To read part 1 of this article, click here… “August 22nd (Sodom Rising!)”

.

.

.

“This wisdom descendeth not from above,

but is earthly, sensual, devilish”

James 3:15 

.

.

.

When Lot lifted up his eyes and saw the lush and well-water country surrounding Sodom, he http://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:Genesis19-17.jpgdecided that affluence and convenience was paramount to keeping separate from the ungodly influences which awaited him and his family in that wicked city.

.

Oh yes, Lot probably made vows, when he took his family to Sodom! Lot probably lived in the country to begin with, a-ways away from the immorality and corruption of city-life. But perhaps the city began to expand closer and closer to his family, or outlaws made it impossible to live in the country, forcing them into the city.

“…let them that be in Judaea flee to the mountains:”

Mark 13:14  

.

http://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:Genesis19-17.jpgBut the day finally came when God’s warning came to Lot…“Escape for thy life; look not behind thee, neither stay thou in all the plain; escape to the mountain, lest thou be consumed.” Genesis 19:17  

.

Lot took his wife and two daughters and fled from the impending destruction of Sodom, Gomorrah and the two other cities.

.

But as we all know, it was the constant contact with the sin and sensuality of Sodom which caused Mrs. Lot to look back at her life in that doomed world, and become eternally lost! She became a pillar of salt!

.

.

.

.

.

.

We live in a very sensual world!

.

Well, that’s an understatement, if ever there was one!

.

And if ever our western societies weren’t obsessed with sensuality, that day has long passed!

.

.

.

.

.

.

.

Everywhere we turn in this high-tech, state-of-the-art super-society, we see and hear sensuality almost on a 24/7/365 basis! Television, Internet, newspapers/magazines, billboards, movies, radio, library books, are literally teeming with sensuality!

.

And one might imagine that the church-world would be denouncing this world’s sensuality, but they are not, to a great extent.

.

Oh yes, to a certain degree, today’s conservative churches are decrying the current societal downward spiral into immorality. And yet, they do not understand their own sensuality, nor the underlying spirit behind sensuality.

.

.

.

.

.

.

.

Today’s signature Bible verse reveals that underlying spirit…“This wisdom descendeth not from above, but is earthly, sensual, devilish.” James 3:15 

.

Here is seen that sensuality is not only “earthly”, but is also, “devilish”!

.

Such a revelation as this should make any Christian tremble at the thought of having such a spirit of sensuality indwelling their body!

.

But this verse also makes clear that sensuality is “earthly”. In other words, this whole world is sensual…and devilish!

.

But because Christians have grown up in this sensual world, we more or less think of sensuality as just an integral part of living.

.

And because we are also “flesh and bone”, like the animal kingdom, we are also dependent upon the needs of the flesh, just as they are.

.

.

.

“And they that use this world, as not abusing it: for the fashion of this world passeth away”

1st Corinthians 7:31 

.

So just how are we Christians to strike the proper balance in our lives, between satisfying our earthly needs and yet striving to become spiritual beings?

.

Well, let’s return to James, Chapter 3 and get a proper context for verse 15.

.

Listen to this entire passage in context…

“Who is a wise man and endued with knowledge among you?

let him shew out of a good conversation his works with meekness of wisdom.

But if ye have bitter envying and strife in your hearts,

glory not, and lie not against the truth. 

This wisdom descendeth not from above, but is earthly, sensual, devilish.

For where envying and strife is, there is confusion and every evil work.

But the wisdom that is from above is first pure,

then peaceable, gentle, and easy to be intreated,

full of mercy and good fruits,

without partiality, and without hypocrisy.

And the fruit of righteousness is sown in peace of them that make peace.”

James 3:13-18

.

As this entire passage reveals, James is speaking in the context of envy and strife, and the self-deception which can overtake a religious person, caught up in this type of sin.

.

But then, James gives the true wisdom from above…“But the wisdom that is from above is first pure, then peaceable, gentle, and easy to be intreated, full of mercy and good fruits, without partiality, and without hypocrisy. And the fruit of righteousness is sown in peace of them that make peace.” James 3:15-18

.

The first and foremost virtuous aspect of heavenly wisdom is that it is pure.

.

And so, we immediately see the direction we must travel in our quest for heavenly wisdom: purity of heart.

.

.

.

.

.

“These be they who separate themselves, sensual, having not the Spirit”

Jude 1:19 

.

Now, as we look out in the world and behold today’s church-world (via Internet), it is not so hard to see that sensuality has crept into much of the worship. From sensual fashions to sensual music, to “foolish talk and jesting” from the pulpit, sensuality has become greatly accepted in the modern-day churches. (Ephesians 5:4)

.

Oh yes, there exists a few churches which attempt to maintain a high degree of piety in their worships. But even there, the attempt at holiness is often compromised and marred by joking and jesting in the pulpit.

.

And quite often, worship music has a sensuality about, in spite of the quasi-Christian lyrics.

.

But when we consider that sensuality is devilish, it should cause any honest-hearted Christian to flee this devilish spirit which indwells the unsaved of the world!

.

.

.

.

.

.

RUN, CHRISTIAN, RUN!

.

Well, in spite of the growing tide of sensuality and immorality rising up all around us, the Bible counsels us…”And the LORD answered me, and said, Write the vision, and make it plain upon tables, that he may run that readeth it. For the vision is yet for an appointed time, but at the end it shall speak, and not lie: though it tarry, wait for it; because it will surely come, it will not tarry.” Habakkuk 2:2, 3  

.

Yes, the Prophet Habakkuk, upon beholding the overwhelming and corrupting influence of evil in these last days (see Habakkuk 1:4), he hears God’s counsel for His people to, “RUN!”

.

But where can we RUN”? After all, it is no longer the day in which we can simply pack up and move to mountains. That’s now illegal!

.

.

.

.

.

“His foundation is in the holy mountains”

Psalm 87:1 

.

But the Bible does reveal some mountains which we can flee to…”As the mountains are round about Jerusalem, so the LORD is round about his people from henceforth even for ever” Psalm 125:2 

.

Here are the true holy mountains which every true worshiper of God can flee to…”He shall dwell on high: his place of defence shall be the munitions of rocks: bread shall be given him; his waters shall be sure. Thine eyes shall see the King in His beauty: they shall behold the land that is very far off.” Isaiah 33:16, 17  

.

Here is a wonderful promise for God’s people in these last moments of earth’s history! That there will be abundant heavenly bread and copious waters of grace to be enjoyed as we hide thyself, as it were, for a little while, until the indignation be overpast”

.

And as we flee from the sensual world (and sensual church-world), and instead surround ourselves with every available spiritual and heavenly influence, our love for this sensual and devilish world will begin to evaporate!

.

.

.

TODAY’S PRAYER…

.

“Dear Lord, Help me to move away from the overwhelming tide of sensuality, whether in society or in the Church…

TODAY’S FEATURED HEAVENLY SIGN

The info and pics of the constellations on this site are all taken from Wikipedia and from The Internation Astronomical Union (click here to view their site)

.

.

.

.

THESE SIGNS ARE MENTIONED

.winter four constellations

From time to time, the Book of Revelation mentions stars. But when we get to Revelation Chapter 12, it speaks of two “great signs in heaven”. First, it speaks of the sign in heaven of a woman with child. Then it speaks of the sign in heaven of a great red dragon, with a tail that sweeps one-third of the stars and casts these stars down to the earth. So we get the sense that this phenomenon that the Apostle John was seeing, was closely intertwined with the starry host of the heavens. And these two signs in heaven, a woman, and a dragon, are a big part of this website, Signs Of Heaven.

.

And so this phenomenon that the Apostle John was seeing, was closely intertwined with the starry host of the heavens.

.

What really gives validity to this idea, is that God created the Universe in such a way, that if one looks at the major constellations, then this Revelation 12 scenario can be seen. So please read on. And if you really want to see this heavenly battle, you just might. It will take some real effort on your part. But through prayer, faith, and study of the site, God may just graciously open your eyes to see this amazing story written on the heavenly scroll above. But don’t wait! This heavenly scroll will soon be rolled up, just as it is written… “And the heaven departed as a scroll when it is rolled together;” Revelation 6:14

.

WINTER CONSTELLATIONS-SEEN IN FALL: This sketch to the right is how this constellation group appears in the eastern sky in fall. This is the four primary constellations of the Winter Constellations. They can be seen in this position, in the late fall above the eastern horizon. The Woman of Revelation 12 is commonly called Ursa Major or The Big Dipper and appears in the north. Orion the Soldier is the at the bottom is to the south of the Woman. The The Dragon of Revelation Constellation’s mouth isThe Hyades Cluster, and the tip of his tail is Pleiades, and his Wave of Water is primarily the  Auriga constellation. The Glorious Horse Constellation  head is of  Perseus Constellation and his rear end is Cassiopeia Constellation.

The Sign Of The Son Of Man In Heaven, Part 1: “Why Do We Hate Jesus?”

.

.

.

.

.

.

“The world cannot hate you;

but Me it hateth,

because I testify of it,

that the works thereof are evil.”

John 7:7

.

.                      

.

.

.

Encircling this entire globe is a great sign in Heaven! Without a doubt, the greatest of all signs! (This picture is the straightened-out version, while this massive constellation actually curves completely around the globe!)

.

One reason why it is so great is because it is so vast, encompassing both the summer and winter skies! And it is comprised of most all the signs revealed on this website.

.

It is called, “The Sign of the Son of Man in Heaven” Constellation, even as it is revealed in Matthew 24:30…“And then shall appear the sign of the Son of man in heaven: and then shall all the tribes of the earth mourn, and they shall see the Son of man coming in the clouds of heaven with power and great glory.”

.

Yes, here is the most remarkable of all signs in heaven!

.

.

.

.

.

GRAND MASTER LEVEL

.

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

But to really see this sign requires the star-gazer to achieve a, “grand-master status”, so to speak, in the Signs Of Heaven. (Well, perhaps that earthly title is not such an appropriate term.)

.

Nevertheless, to see this great constellation first requires one to become fully familiar with all the other signs revealed on these two websites (www.devouringfire.com and www.theheavensdeclare.net)

.

But once the reader does achieve (or rather, “receive”) a thorough familiarity with all these other signs, then that Reader can go out and see the granddaddy of all signs, “The Sign of the Son of Man in Heaven Constellation”! (There is, however one other great sign which has not yet been revealed, because of its complexity, called the “Holy Ghostly-Priest Constellation”)

“THEY HAVE REWARDED ME…HATRED FOR MY LOVE”

Psalm 109:5 

.

But anyway, just what does this heavenly phenomenon have to do with today’s devotional?

.

Well, simply put, today’s article asks the question, “Why did the world (us) put Jesus on the Cross?”

.

Yes, we’re all responsible for putting Jesus on the Cross!

.

But why? Why did we do it?

.

Well, the ugly truth is, we did it out of pure hatred!

“THE WORKS THEREOF ARE EVIL”

.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:Martin,_John_-_Satan_presiding_at_the_Infernal_Council_-_1824.JPGBut just why did we hate Jesus so much?

.

Listen to the words which Jesus spoke to His then unsaved brothers…“The world cannot hate you; but Me it hateth, because I testify of it, that the works thereof are evil.” John 7:7

.

Here we have it! We hated Jesus because He criticized our beloved world! After all, this world is not Jesus’ world. No, it was handed over to Lucifer, who now carries the title, “The Devil”, and, “Satan”. Yes, all that is in this world, the lust of the flesh, the lust of the eyes and the pride of life is not of the Father, but is of the world and is of the Devil! (see 1st John 2:15-17)

A WORLD IN HOPELESS UNBELIEF

.

Now of course, we need to “cut a little slack”, as they say, for the people of this unbelieving world. After all, the people of this world are enshrouded in spiritual darkness and unbelief! They do not believe that there actually exists an alternative to their world. All their hope is in this world, even as miserable and hopeless as it is! They have no hope for Heaven!

.

And let’s face it! Many (or perhaps most) young people feel as if they “have this world by the tail”! Death seems so far off to them. And so, they love this selfish world, and say within themselves, “Why should I give up all the many pleasures and ambitious pursuits that this world has to offer, for some far off, ‘pie in the sky’ fable? I’ll just worry about all that dying stuff in 50 or 60 years!”

.

Well, that’s pretty much how the world views all this, “Jesus stuff”!

This massive constellation is comprised of the various constellations on this website“IF ANY MAN LOVE THE WORLD, THE LOVE OF THE FATHER IS NOT IN HIM”

1st John 2:15-17

.

And so, when Jesus showed up and condemned this world, the world, in its hopeless and abject unbelief, didn’t want to hear all that criticism and negativity!

.

And eventually, they put Jesus on the cruel Cross of Calvary in hopes of forever silencing Him.

“A FRIEND OF THE WORLD IS THE ENEMY OF GOD”

James 4:4

.

But what about Christians? We now love Jesus, don’t we? Oh yes, when we were lost out there, back in the world, we hated Him.

.

But now we love Him!

.

Oh, do we really love Him?

.

Listen to God’s assessment of His very own professed people…“for with their mouth they show much love, but their heart goeth after their covetousness.” Ezekiel 33:31

.

Here is revealed what God sees when examining our hearts: we profess to love Jesus, but in reality, we love the Devil.

.

.

.

.

.

TO LOVE THIS WORLD IS TO LOVE THE GOD OF THIS WORLD

.

“Now how could I ever be accused of loving the Devil? That’s a ridiculous idea! That’s a totally absurd notion! I love my Jesus!”

.

You see, what we really need to understand is that Satan is called, “the god of this world” (2nd Corinthians 4:4). And as such, he has filled this world with tokens of his selfish character.

.

In other words, this world is a reflection of Satan’s evil. Yes, all that is in world, our little daily morsels, our selfish entertainments, our proud, ambitious attainments, and our fleshly desires are not from God, but are of this, the Devil’s world!

.

And the very fact that we still pursue these selfish attributes, reveals just who our first love truly is!

“GOOD NEWS FROM A FAR COUNTRY”

.

Well, in spite of all this negativity, there is a bright rainbow of promise!

https://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:Rainbow_over_Sandy%27s_Hill_-_geograph.org.uk_-_376828.jpg

.

And that bright promise is found in God’s willingness to transform us into His glorious image!

.

In other words, as Malachi 3:3 reveals…“And He (God) shall sit as a refiner and purifier of silver: and He shall purify the sons of Levi (Christians), and purge them as gold and silver, that they may offer unto the LORD an offering in righteousness.”

.

Here we have the essence of God’s love for us: the reconciliation of His people back into His image, the Holy Image we discarded long ago in the garden.

.

And the essence of our love for Jesus, is to patiently allow Him to complete this purification process in us even though it may often be quite painful!

.

.

“PURIFIETH HIMSELF, EVEN AS HE (JESUS) IS PURE”

.

Yes, if we are willing to allow Jesus to begin to purify our hearts, He will, day-by-day, purge out all the world-loving dross which dwells within our deceitful hearts, and magnify a brand new heart within us, even the very heart of Jesus!

.

And once this is accomplished, all of our love for this world and for the god of this selfish and evil world will be totally and forever eradicated from our heart! Then our hatred for Jesus will be transformed into pure love! Love for Jesus, and love for His people. And even a great love for all those lost souls who are in desperate need of Christ’s Salvation!

TODAY’S FEATURED SIGN

“Immediately after the tribulation of those days shall the sun be darkened, and the moon shall not give her light, and the stars shall fall from heaven, and the powers of the heavens shall be shaken: And then shall appear the sign of the Son of man in heaven: and then shall all the tribes of the earth mourn, and they shall see the Son of man coming in the clouds of heaven with power and great glory.”  Matthew 24:29, 3o

STRETCHED FROM SKY TO SKY

.

In 2012, this constellation was revealed. It is comprised of all the other constellations on this website, as they appear in the night-sky. The only way to really see this constellation, is to become very totally familiar with this website. This is because this incredible constellation spans both the summer and winter skies. This constellation is actually in a semi-circle, as it appears in the night-sky. These pictures, however, show it as it would appear straightened out.

.Son Of Man Constellation

There is an old song which goes… “The love of God is greater far than tongue or pen can ever tell; It goes beyond the highest star, and reaches to the lowest Hell

.

But the last verse of this song says… “Could we with ink the ocean fill, And were the skies of parchment made, were every stalk on earth a quill, And every man a scribe by trade; To write the love of God above, would drain the ocean dry; Nor could the scroll contain the whole, though stretched from sky to sky.” Now what makes all this so extremely interesting, is that this verse was found scribbled on the wall of a deceased “insane” person’s cell in a psychiatric sanitarium, upon removing his corpse.

.

And little did this “insane” man realize, that God had actually written His love and inscribed that love on the scroll (of the sky). And God had actually stretched that picture of love from sky to sky, just as the song-verse said.

.

And now God has revealed this heavenly portrait of the Son of Man, writhing in pain for a planet who cares very little for Him. (These constellations span both summer and winter sky, and this constellation in this picture to the right actually appears much more curved in the sky.)

.

And just like the Bible God has made these signs in such a way, that they are true enough for the Believers to believe; but doubtful enough for the scorners to scorn.   

.

“With the merciful Thou wilt show Thyself merciful; with an upright man Thou wilt show Thyself upright; With the pure Thou wilt show Thyself pure; and with the froward Thou wilt show Thyself froward. For Thou wilt save the afflicted people; but wilt bring down high looks. Psalm 18:25-27

The War Nobody Prepared For!

. 

.

.

.

.

What if an extremely reliable source warned you that a great and strong and very evil army was going to come against you and fight against you? 

.http://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:At_a_loss.svg

And this very reliable source told you that you really, really need to get yourself ready for that war?

.

But then, as you began to get ready, all your friends began to hug you and embrace you and tell you not to worry!

.

“No”, they say, “You don’t need to worry about that! Because,” they explained, “the same reliable source who warned you to get ready, is actually going to remove you far away, just prior to that war, to a place of complete peace and safety!”

ENJOYING THIS SELFISH WORLD!

.http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:PS_Kr%C3%B8yer_-_Hip_hip_hurra!_Kunstnerfest_p%C3%A5_Skagen_1888.jpg

But, dear Reader, just listen to the Word of the Lord… “Come ye, say they, I will fetch wine, and we will fill ourselves with strong drink; and to morrow shall be as this day, and much more abundant.” Isaiah 56:12.

.

Yes, while we’re going after the cares and pleasures of this world, that Great and Terrible Day of the Lord is fast approaching!

.

“THEY CRY, ‘PEACE, PEACE, WHEN THERE IS NO PEACE!”

.

Yes, and that is exactly what is happening in the Christian world!

.

The Bible warns… “For when they shall say, Peace and safety; then sudden destruction cometh upon them, as travail upon a woman with child; and they shall not escape.” 1st Thessalonians 5:3.

.

Yes, for about 60 years, since the 1950’s, the Christian community has been gradually changing its stance on the Book of Revelation, now saying that most of it doesn’t concern the Church! In essence, “Peace and safety” is what we’re now saying!

.

But you see, while the Bible warns us over and over, to get our armor on and be ready for battle, we are being lulled to sleep by those who are now saying that God is going to remove the Church from the earth, just prior to that great Day of the Lord!

.

That’s right, Satan, it seems, has been feeding us a great big lie! And we have bought into that lie, “hook, line and sinker”, as they say!

.

Many voices have been saying “peace and safety”, when in fact, they should be crying… “Blow ye the trumpet in Zion, and sound an alarm in my holy mountain: let all the inhabitants of the land tremble: for the day of the LORD cometh, for it is nigh at hand;” Joel 2:1.

A LIE REPEATED OFTEN

Joseph Goebbels, Propaganda Minister for Adolph Hitler said, “If you repeat a lie often enough,http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:Bundesarchiv_Bild_146-1968-101-20A,_Joseph_Goebbels.jpg people will believe it. If you repeat a lie often enough, it becomes the truth.”

.

The sad fact is, there has been a false doctrine, known as the “The Pre-tribulation Rapture”, which is found nowhere in the Bible! And just like Joseph Goebbels, Hitler’s Propaganda Minister, many have been trumpeting this non-biblical dogma called, “Pre-tribulation Rapture”, day and night, via TV and radio, and pulpits!

.

But truth-be-told, God never calls His return, “The Rapture”. Never! That’s a totally fabricated name! Yes, there’s NOT one single time when God used the name, “The Rapture” in the Bible!

.

.

.

ADDING TO, OR DIMINISHING FROM GOD’S WORD

.

So how does one justify this non-biblical name, “The Rapture”? Well, in 1st Thessalonians 4:15, there is a passage which speaks about “The Coming of the Lord” But in 1st Thessalonians 4:17, two verses later, theologians have taken the liberty of ignoring God’s name, “The Coming of the Lord”, and have claimed that being caught up is a separate event. And to justify this 2nd event, they have added the name, “The Rapture”.

.

In this way, now Satan has convinced the Church that there are two 2nd Coming’s of the Lord: one prior to the 7 year tribulation (The so-called “The Rapture”), and one after (the actual biblical name, “The Coming of the Lord”).

.

And this ignoring of God’s name, “The Coming of the Lord”, in verse 15, is excused by claiming that the words, “caught up” are from the Greek word, “harpazo” (which is not even a proper name, but is a verb!) and have turned it into the proper noun, “The Rapture”!

.

This would not be nearly such a grievous sin, if it were not an ignoring of the name which God has given to that event! And so, many have diminished God’s Word, by rejecting the God-given name in that very same passage, “The Coming of the Lord” and have added to God’s Word the totally fabricated name, “The Rapture”. So we have committed two sins!

.

And so now, we are guilty of both “adding to” and “diminishing ought” from God’s Word! Two grievous sins!

.

.

.

.

.

.

THEOLOGIANS HAVE CREATED 2 EVENTS INSTEAD OF 1 EVENT

.

Oh yes, they correctly say that “The Coming of the Lord” will still occur on the last day. But they have now concocted a completely new 2nd Coming by adding this new event, “The Rapture”, inserting it into that very same passage which only speaks of “The Coming of the Lord”!

.

In other words, it is actually, “The Coming of the Lord”, in which God’s people will be “caught up together (with the resurrected dead) to meet the Lord in the air”. Not this spurious, so-called “Rapture”!

.

And because most of us do not spend much time searching for biblical truth, and are not so concerned about these things, this great deception goes almost undetected.

.

And even when someone does object, they are quickly discredited by any possible means!

.

ABOVE PICTURE – Adding to or taking from God’s Word, the Bible

.

.

.

.

.

A MATTER OF LOSING MY SALVATION!

.

But God cares! And the Bible even pronounces a curse on anyone who adds to, or takes away from, the prophecy of this book.

.

Listen… “For I testify unto every man that heareth the words of the prophecy of this book, If any man shall add unto these things, God shall add unto him the plagues that are written in this book. And if any man shall take away from the words of the book of this prophecy, God shall take away his part out of the book of life, and out of the holy city, and from the things which are written in this book.” Revelation 22:18, 19

.

Now, dear trembling child of God, do we really want to take the chance of being found guilty of “adding to”, or “taking away” from the Book of Revelation? Are we willing to have our name removed from the Lamb’s Book of Life, simply because we have fallen in love with this man-created name, “The Rapture? That’s right! It’s a totally man-contrived title! So why do we love this title more than we love God’s title for that event?

.

Yes, O Christian, we’ve been duped by demonic forces it appears, just as God foretold we would be… “As for My people, children are their oppressors, and women rule over them. O My people, they which lead thee cause thee to err, and destroy the way of thy paths.” Isaiah 3:12.

GLORIOUS CROWN CONSTELLATION… 

.

& THE REVELATION 12 WOMAN

(Click here to read more!)

.corona borealis

Let us meet our first host: The Glorious Crown of Revelation 12 Constellation!

.Corona Borealis Wikipedia Taken from software Perseus

This Glorious Crown Constellation looks like a wreath at first glance. It has 7 stars, plus another star in the middle. This Glorious Crown Constellation is commonly referred to as the Corona Borealis Constellation. This wreath reminds us of the victory wreath given to athletes who won races in the ancient cultures. This was spoken of by Paul as he compared those ancient races to the race that Christians must run…  “Know you all not, that they which run in a race run all, but one receives the prize? So run, that you all may obtain.” 1st Corinthians 9:24 (see also Hebrews 12:1)

.

.

“A CROWN OF 12 STARS UPON HER HEAD” …

.

But upon a closer examination if you have access to a very dark sky out in the country; if you watch this wreath, you will eventually see 5 more very faint stars, making a total of 12 stars, plus that single star in the middle. This wreath now becomes a crown of 12 stars. This goes along with Revelation 12, which tells of a crown of 12 stars upon the head of the Virtuous Woman of Revelation 12.

.

Just listen to Revelation… “And there appeared a great wonder in heaven; a woman…and upon her head a crown of twelve stars:” Rev. 12:1.

.

But this crown is not yet upon the head of the Virtuous Woman of Revelation 12 Constellation (also known as Ursa Major). It is just above her head, as if she has yet to attain it. Of course, the 13th star in the middle would represent Christ (Who is our true Crown of our rejoicing). Ok, so we have a picture of Christ and His twelve tribes of Israel. But also we have a picture of Christ and His twelve apostles, which is a picture of His Church. So this heavenly crown is a multi-faceted concept.

“Understanding The Pandemic Madness”

.

.

.

“Shall the throne of iniquity

have fellowship with thee,

which frameth mischief by a law?”

Psalm 94:20 

.

.

.

.

.

http://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:At_a_loss.svgPeople are bewildered!

.

Just what on earth is going on!?

.

Did this pandemic virus begin in a laboratory? Or not?

.

And why is the government treating this pandemic so fearfully as if it is as deadly was the case in past pandemics which killed up to a third of the population or more?!

http://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:At_a_loss.svg

.

And why are governments so afraid afraid of allowing this pandemic to run its course, eventually gaining, “herd immunity”, as was so effective in the past?

.    

And why do so many nations desire to quarantine and shutdown the entire populace when death occurs mostly with some elderly ones who already have co-morbidities? Why not merely quarantine just the elderly while everyone else gains herd immunity as a few nations have successfully done?

http://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:At_a_loss.svg

.

And why does the government recklessly insist on their untested vaccines, while ignoring time-tested drugs which have proved so effective against this virus?

.

And why is the government speaking so many obvious “lies in hypocrisy”? 1st Timothy 4:2

.

And just why is one protest group freely allowed to engage in public violence and destruction of private/public property, while another group is arrested for peacefully protesting (in Canada)?

.

Why are churches closed down while gambling casinos, liquor/hallucinogenic stores, and big-box stores remain open?

.

But why in the world are so many people okay with all this, even encouraging such injustice and pandemic madness!?

2nd Corinthians 2:11 

.

There are many Bible students who fully believe this entire pandemic virus & subsequent lockdowns are the product of Lucifer (and all his fellow unseen spiritual beings of evil), whom the Bible refers to as “the god of this world”. 2nd Corinthians 4:4

.

Yes, even right down to the development of the virus which may well have been specifically designed by Satan, working through humans in a lab, for this very moment in time!

MARK OF THE BEAST?

.

https://theheavensdeclare.net/mark-of-the-beast-seal-of-god/And doesn’t all this lockdown madness remind us of the prophecy…“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 13:17 

.

While the lockdowns are not actually “the mark”, yet small Christian-owned businesses have already been persecuted for refusing to violate their conscious in how they do business, in other ways.

.

But the lockdowns may pave the way for the fulfillment of Revelation 13:17…“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”? 

.

In other words, as governments gain increasing power and authority to shut down businesses and individuals from buying and selling, it could very well be the precursor to the hour in which Satan springs his deadly trap on the whole unsuspecting world.

.

.

“The nations were angry, and Your wrath has come, And the time of the dead, that they should be judged”

Revelation 11:18

https://theheavensdeclare.net/woman-flees-to-the-wilderness/.

But one thing we do know about Satan: he is a master at stirring up anger and hatred. And so, as we behold all the divisiveness and anger, we can rest assured that this is being done for his express purposes.

.

And of course he wants to cause church-goers to angrily oppose the present truth found in Revelation 18…And I heard another voice from heaven, saying, Come out of her, My people, that ye be not partakers of her sins, and that ye receive not of her plagues. Revelation 18:4 

.

Yes, these lockdowns will undoubtedly prejudice most church-goers against the idea that God wants them to come out of “Babylon” (the established but apostate congregations), and take their stand with God’s faithful remnant people.

.

“…yea, let God be true, but every man a liar…”

Romans 3:4 

.

And what about all the government lies and hypocrisy? And what about the media Goliaths which likewise deal daily in “Yellow Journalism”?

https://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:The_Yellow_Press_by_L.M._Glackens.jpg.

Yes, isn’t it amazing to hear the bold-faced lies and abject hypocrisy coming from the media and from Washington DC, and even from many state governments! It almost takes one’s breath away at how boldly and shamelessly we’re being lied to, and subjected to double-standard justice!

.

Well, one thing is for sure! It sure fulfills the Bible verse…“…yea, let God be true, but every man a liar…”! Romans 3:4

https://theheavensdeclare.net/flood-waters-of-satan/“And I beheld another beast coming up out of the earth; and he had two horns like a lamb, and he spake as a dragon”

Revelation 13:11 

.

But also, as this website has repeatedly warned, Satan is now coming through the government, through the common people, and through the media as the Revelation 13, False Prophet Beast (see also, Revelation 19:20 for “False Prophet” verse)

.

Yes, Satan is using the various media giants as his megaphone, speaking “as a dragon” (Revelation13:11). And since he is the Father of Lies, it is no wonder that so much dishonesty and hypocrisy is being trumpeted these days, via the various forms of media! After all, this world has been given over to him, as the the Gospels reveal. And so, we should not be surprised that he has such authority over the various media giants!

.

And neither should we be amazed that he has so many willing followers!

https://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:PropagandaNaziStabsBible.gif“Shall the throne of iniquity have fellowship with thee, which frameth mischief by a law?

Psalm 94:20 

.

Now of course, we’re told that it’s all about keeping people from dying by this virus. And truth-be-told, our leaders more or less believe this premise.

.

But Satan appears to be using this pandemic as a justification to strengthen his antichrist forces, the worldly governments, as he turns these formerly freedom-loving nations into the same types of totalitarian tyrants which already control other evil empires now existing around the world.

.

Listen…“Shall the throne of iniquity have fellowship with thee, which frameth mischief by a law?Psalm 94:20 

.

And so, under the guise of a medical crisis, Satan (under the pretense of “safety” laws) steals away the freedoms, which once made the western nations great! So tragic! And, there are enough citizens willing to allow all this to be carried forward.

SATAN’S WAR-MACHINE BEING READIED AND PRECISION-TUNED

.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:Martin,_John_-_Satan_presiding_at_the_Infernal_Council_-_1824.JPGAnd, it appears as if all this world-wide orchestration concerning the pandemic and subsequent lockdowns, as well as the mass censorship by the tech-Goliaths, and zealous law-enforcement by civil authorities is merely Satan’s means of getting his armies and war-machine ready and precision-tuned for the coming conflict.

.

Yes, Satan is a very formidable adversary of God. And he wants to make very sure he has absolutely every last thing in place for the final “hour of trial coming upon the whole world”, and especially upon God’s unprepared people! (see Revelation 3:10)

.

And last but not least, Satan wants to the world following his “marching-orders”, so that there will be no rebellion when the final test comes.

“Let every soul be subject unto the higher powers. For there is no power but of God: the powers that be are ordained of God”

Romans 13:1

.

So how are we to deal with all that’s going on? Are we to protest? Are we to rebel?

.

Just how are we to respond to this obvious tyrannical movement?

.

Well, this above verse says it all!

.

https://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:Rezando.jpgYes, as far as our obedience or disobedience, the Bible commands us to obey, “in all things lawful”. (see 1st Peter 2:13)

.

And as far as protesting, the most effective protesting we can do is before the Lord in our prayer closet, as we protest our own past lethargy and slovenly ways.

GOOD NEWS!

.

Well, the Good News is, that we can still beg and plead for enough time and willingness to fully get our armor on and sharpen our swords!

.

Because, God is allowing Satan to orchestrate this entire pandemic theater, to cause His Lukewarm Church to rise up in alarm, just as it is written…The sinners in Zion are afraid; fearfulness hath surprised the hypocrites. Who among us shall dwell with the devouring fire? who among us shall dwell with everlasting burnings? Isaiah 33:14

.

Yes, we were all taken by surprise by these apocalyptic events. Many of us were led to believe that we would all be raptured out of the world, prior to the great and Terrible Day of the Lord! But now we’ve been surprised! But now we are filled with fear as we see everything we thought was “as solid as Gibraltar”, wash away like the proverbial “castle made of sand”!

.

Let’s all make haste and not delay!

Perhaps this final verse encapsulates the fearful moment we’re surprised to discover to be now caught in…

The sinners in Zion are afraid; 

fearfulness hath surprised the hypocrites. 

Who among us shall dwell with the devouring fire? 

who among us shall dwell with everlasting burnings?”

HEAVENLY OBJECT LESSON

.

“Then the moon shall be confounded, and the sun ashamed, when the LORD of hosts shall reign in mount Zion, and in Jerusalem, and before his ancients gloriously.” Isaiah 24:23

.

When God created the Moon and the stars, He ordained them to “rule the night” (Gen. 1:16). The Moon, especially when it is full, can light your pathway through the night, as it reflects the light of the Sun.

.

So too, the Christian is to be a light to the world: to this sin-darkened world. But as the Moon must reflect the light of the Sun, in order to be a light to the world, so also must the Christian reflect the light of Jesus, to be a spiritual light to this planet in rebellion. Listen…

.

“Ye are the light of the world…Let your light so shine before men, that they may see your good works, and glorify your Father which is in heaven.” Matthew 5:14-16

However, during an eclipse, the Earth passes directly between the Sun and the Moon, preventing that sunlight from shining on the Moon’s face. This is an incredible object-lesson about when the child of God allows the world to come between him and his Lord. Like the eclipse, that person no longer reflects the light of Jesus, because his or her love of this dark world of sin has eclipsed the light from the “Sun of Righteousness” (see Malachi 4:2).

.

And so, this is just one of the many poetic truths seen in the Moon. (For more on this subject of an eclipse, you may link to the article… “Lunar Eclipse & Spiritual Eclipse”)

“My Ways Are Not Your Ways!”

.

.

.

.

“For My thoughts are not your thoughts,

neither are your ways My ways, saith the LORD.

For as the heavens are higher than the earth,

so are My ways higher than your ways,

and My thoughts than your thoughts.”

Isaiah 55:8, 9

Have you ever heard this saying, “A stitch in time saves nine”?

.

Well, there seems to be a lot of wisdom in that saying, doesn’t there? And of course, that saying comes from the observance of nature. And nature is a pretty good teacher, quite often.

.

Yes, there are many proverbs in the world, which seem to be in harmony with the Bible. 

.http://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:Tiger_shark.jpg

What about this saying… “Don’t go swimming in shark-infested waters”? There’s another good proverb!

UNBIBLICAL PROVERBS

.

But there are many, many, other proverbs, which are not so wonderful.

.

Take for instance, this one… http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:Bonnat02.jpg“God helps those who help themselves”.

.

Is that a good proverb?

.

Is that even a biblical idea?

.

Well, the Bible says it quite differently… “For He (God) shall deliver the needy when he crieth; the poor also, and him that hath no helper. He shall spare the poor and needy, and shall save the souls of the needy.” Psalm 72:12, 13

.

Here is seen that God helps those who are helpless!

YOU’RE IN GOOD HANDS WITH GOD!

.

Yes, we live in a world filled with many ideas about how we should live and what we should and shouldn’t do!

.

This world is a veritable Babylon of confusion. And the ways of man are not the ways of God.

.

Take, for example, the saying… “You’re in good hands with Allstate”. And when this saying is repeated on television, their logo shows a giant pair of hands, holding a car and a house, as if God Himself is namedhttp://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:Allstate.svg “Allstate”.

.

Now Allstate may be an excellent company! And of course, if the law says we must have insurance to drive a car, we must submit ourselves to “every ordinance of Man, for the Lord’s sake”.

.

But concerning whose hands are “good”, the Bible says just the opposite… “Thus saith the LORD; Cursed be the man that trusteth in man, and maketh flesh his arm…Blessed is the man that trusteth in the LORD, and whose hope the LORD is.” Jeremiah 17:5, 7

OUR DAILY BRAINWASHING

TV indoctrination

.

If you watch television, you will notice that both the shows and the advertisements capitalize on the idea that Man is to trust in Man. Hardly ever does television promote the idea that Man should trust in God

.

Therefore it’s no wonder that so few people are willing to put their trust in the Lord! After all, we are programmed by this high-tech society, to put our trust in Man’s strength.

.

From morning till night, and beyond, these devices indoctrinate us to put our trust in Man.

.

“THE RENEWING OF YOUR MINDS”

.

“And be not conformed to this world: but be ye transformed by the renewing of your minhttp://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:Braet_von_%C3%9Cberfeldt_woman_with_bible_1866.jpgd, that ye may prove what is that good, and acceptable, and perfect, will of God.” Romans 12:2 

.

And so, God has given us the Bible to re-educate ourselves into placing our trust in God. And God has commanded that we should read our Bible and contemplate its life-giving words, as we go about our daily duties. And the Bible promises… “So then faith cometh by hearing, and hearing by the Word of God.” Romans 10:17.

.

So then, both “faith”, as well as “hearing” come to us as a result of studying God’s words. Yes, the Bible begets spiritual life into otherwise, spiritually dead humans.

.

And all those who have truly received the gift of the Holy Spirit, will long to soak-in the life-giving words found in its pages!

PEACE THAT SURPASSES ALL UNDERSTANDING!

.

http://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:Tissot_Moses_and_the_Ten_Commandments.jpgAnd isn’t it true, that it’s often very difficult to relearn how to handle life’s various problems and situations?

.

But the life of faith and trusting in God to solve our problems is something we all must struggle with, at times.

.

Yet haven’t we all experienced that, the more we learn to cease from Man’s faithless ways, and the more we put all our cares in God’s good hands, the more we will truly have peace as we enjoy the simplicity that we have in Christ?

.

And as we grow in faith, and learn to live by faith, the more money we will save by not having to pay for the “peace of mind” that Man would sell to us.

.

Because God’s “peace of mind” is totally free!

THE REVELATION 12 DRAGON

.

Dragon of Revelation 12 Constellation

.

This Dragon constellation appears in the eastern horizon about mid-summer in the pre-dawn hours, spewing his flood-waters northward toward the Revelation 12 Woman in Travail (not pictured in this chart).

.

The Wave of Water is primarily composed of the Constellation Auriga. There are two dimmer stars (#’s 1 & 2) which are closest to the Dragon’s mouth. These two dimmer stars are also part of this Wave of Water.

.

THE ZODIAC NAMES

It is not the purpose, nor the desire of www.theheavensdeclare.net to give any validity or recognition to the Zodiac or any pagan deities. But unfortunately, the common names of many constellations (such as Scorpio or Sagittarius, etc.), must be given, solely for the purpose of locating them on star-charts.
