Noble Bereans,

.

Part 64:

“How to Read Ellen White’s Writings”

To read part 1, click here…”September 2nd (Noble Bereans?)”

.

.

.

.

.

.

.

.

.

So, in this little series, the subject of those noble Bereans has been introduced. And today, it is still worthy of a little more exploration into another area of concern.

.

Let’s review the key Bible passage…

“And the brethren immediately sent away Paul and Silas by night unto Berea:

who coming there, went into the synagogue of the Jews.

These were more noble than those in Thessalonica,

in that they received the word with all readiness of mind,

and searched the scriptures daily, whether those things were so.”

Acts 17:10, 11

.

.

.

AN OPEN-MINDED SPIRIT IN BEREA

.

Okay, so those in Berea were more noble, because they:

.

1. “Received the Word with all readiness of mind.”

.http://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:La_Bible,_Notre-Dame_du_Taur,_septembre_2011.jpg

2. “And searched the Scriptures daily, whether those things were so.”

.

And so, the Bereans were ready to receive new teachings, which no doubt, conflicted with the supposed, “orthodox” teachings of that day.

.

Thus there was an open-mindedness which permeated their hearts, and a willingness to search the Scriptures daily, in hopes that these seemingly new teachings were indeed true!

“The Bible and the Bible alone, is our creed, the sole bond of union; all who bow to this holy Word will be in harmony . . . Man is fallible, but God’s Word is infallible.

“We have many lessons to learn, and many, many to unlearn.  God and heaven alone are infallible.  Those who think that they will never have to give up a cherished view, never have occasion to change an opinion, will be disappointed.  

“In regard to infallibility, I never claimed it; God alone is infallible.  His word is true, and in Him is no variableness, or shadow of turning.”  Selected Messages, Book One, pp. 416 and 37.

TODAY’S FEATURED HEAVENLY SIGN

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

. 

.

. 

.

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 thus, 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.

Daily Devotional, Year 4 – December 12 (Fainting Goats & Us: PART 2 “Who is the World’s Strongest Human?”)

Daily Devotional, Year 4 – December 12

.

.

Fainting Goats & Us

.

PART 2

“Who is the World’s Strongest Human?”

.

.

.

.

.

.

“f thou faint in the day of adversity,

thy strength is small.”

Proverbs 24:10

.

.

.

.

.

Just who is the strongest person in the world? Well, in times past, many would give such a title to Samson. His physical strength was superhuman!

.

But does Samson qualify as the strongest human to ever live?

.

Some might even say Goliath. Definitely a strong man!

.

In this decadent society, we are greatly saddened to see the populace growing increasingly weaker in moral, spiritual, and even in physical strength! Yes, this decadent, opulent society has provided so many labor-saving inventions, which has caused many younger folks to become somewhat helpless in many respects. So much so, they often tagged as “snowflakes”! We’re so used to having everything handed to us, pre-made, pre-packaged that we have greatly become a society of moral/physical/spiritual weaklings! “Where does milk come from, little Johnny? From the grocery store, of course!”

.

But back to our initial question. So, just who might we consider to be the strongest human in the world?

.

Well, actually, God only knows for sure, since there are 6 or 7 billion people living to choose from!

.

But there are two individuals living at the time of this article, who just might be worthy candidates for this title.

.

And yet, both of these persons couldn’t last 1-second in an arm-wrestling match! But both of them have super-human strength!

.

The fact is, both of them are without use of both arms and legs. As a matter of fact, one of them has no arms and only one leg!

.

In spite of their lack of physical strength, both of them are perhaps two of the strongest people on earth. One of them lost her use of both arms and legs in a catastrophic accident when she was just a teenager. The other was born without arms and just one partial leg. Both of them are much older now.

.

And yet, God has raised up these two to become paragons of super-human strength, morally, and spiritually.

.

Unlike Samson, who was strong physically, but lacked moral/spiritual strength, these two Christians have overcome their tremendous handicaps. And God has purposely raised them up to be role-models and inspirations for all Christians who likewise suffer numerous problems, setbacks, handicaps, disadvantages. Listening to these two faith-filled Christian evangelists greatly encourages us to go forward on our sojourn through this cold, dark and sad world!

.

Whatever they may lack in physical strength, God has blessed them spiritually in faith, love, empathy-for-others, and courage!

.

Oh yes, God, has, no doubt, raised up many other “Spiritual Samsons”, who may be unsung heroes to this world. But just like these two modern-day Samsons, are likewise inspirations and witnesses of God’s faith, love, forgiveness, and spiritual strength to those around them: in their own homes, neighborhoods, and/or in their communities!

.

And let’s face it, we live in a world where many people may exhibit physical strength, stamina, talents, and courage. But just like the Apostle, Peter, these same strong ones might willingly take sword-in-hand, risk their own life, labor tirelessly! And yet, separated from God’s Holy Spirit, would cower under the slightest adversity as did Peter when confronted by a young girl…“a damsel came unto him (Peter), saying, you also were with Jesus of Galilee. But he denied before them all, saying…I do not know the man (Jesus)!” Matthew 26:69, 70.

.

Yes, this world is full of spiritual weaklings…faithless cowards…unable to control their own spirit in the face of the slightest temptation or spiritual trial. Plagued by unwholesome thoughts, slaves of appetite and divers lusts, they are like walls broken down.

.

Oh yes, that very strong man, Lucifer, now given title, “Satan” can give the world a seemingly endless strength and ability to perform many earthly tasks. But the Devil can never give a mortal soul true spiritual strength, true godly courage, true self-control. Only God can!

.

The very Good News is that today is still the day of Salvation! And though we may be weak in the eyes of the world, we can become spiritual Samsons in the eyes of God and His Holy Angels!

THE HOLY-GHOST-RIDER CONSTELLATION

.

“Did you give…wings and feathers unto the ostrich?….What time she lifts up herself on high, she scorns the horse and his rider.” Job 39:17, 18

.

Here in the above condensed passage is revealed a tremendous Bible prophecy! Here the ostrich (being a symbol of the Church-Apostate) is going to lift up herself and scorn the horse and his rider.

.

Well, if we look in the winter-night skies, we might possibly have our eyes opened to see a most incredible constellation group, known as the “Horse and His Rider” Constellation Group.

Holy-Ghost-Rider on Goodly Horse (above western horizon)

Holy-Ghost-Rider on Goodly Horse (above western horizon)

.

And so, this above passage speaks of the time of the end (which we are just now in). And sad to say, there will be many in the Church who will scorn this last message, just as the wisdom-deprived ostrich scorns the Horse and His Rider, who symbolize God’s Church in battle, being ridden by the Spirit of Christ! Such a sad ending for the Church-Apostate, to scorn the Holy Spirit: the same Spirit that they so often exulted in praise, with their lips!

.

This constellation group is made up of a number of smaller constellations: the horse’s head, made from the Perseus Constellation. The tail and rear end is partly of the Cassiopeia Constellation. The hind-leg is made partly of stars from the Andromeda Constellation. The Rider is made primarily from the Camelopardalis Constellation.

Daily Devotional, Year 4 – December 11

.

.

.

.

.

.

Look Up, Lift Up Your Heads,

.

Part 11:

“This World is Not My Home!”

To read Part 1, click here… “July 4th (Look Up & Lift Up Your Heads!)”

.

.

.

.

.

.

“Man, oh man, oh man!!!”

The daily news reports just seem to be getting worse and worse and worse!!!

.

It seems like the entire world is coming unraveled!

.

*Completely out-of-control thievery at an all-time high! Inflation too!

*The younger generation being indoctrinated into insane and hateful ideologies!

*Racial hatred and division being stoked by the lying Helter-Skelter media!

*Governments engaging in suicidal spending!

*The Internet becoming a modern-day “Big Brother”, mind-controlling the world!

*The major news-media becoming more and more dishonest and untrustworthy!

*Children being confused about basic biology!

*The western nations becoming weaker while tyrannical nations grow stronger.

*A total collapse of national borders, allowing millions to pour over!

.

The state of the world is getting so unbelievably horrible, that many are no doubt becoming hopelessly sad and confounded! It just doesn’t seem like things will ever get better!

.

So, just what are we to do? How are we to cope with all the insanity and hell-bent self-destruction which the world appears to be racing into?

.

.

.

https://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:Jim_Reeves_Monument_DSC_0233.jpgARE WE REALLY “JUST A -PASSIN’ THROUGH”?  

.

Remember that old song…

“This world is not my home,

I’m just a-passin’ through.

My treasures are laid up somewhere beyond the blue.

The angels beckon me from heaven’s open door.

And I can’t feel at home in this world anymore”?

.

This song first appeared in print in 1919 and has been sung by many Gospel musicians.

.

Well, most faithful church attendees would probably wholeheartedly affirm this song’s faithful sentiment: “We’re just a-passin’ through!”.

.

.

 

.

The fact is, we have entered into the fulfillment of Luke 21:28, in which Jesus admonishes us…“And when these things begin to come to pass, then look up, and lift up your heads; for your redemption draweth nigh.”

.

Yes, things down here are getting increasingly hopeless. It’s time to renounce this hopelessly tragic world and begin our upward ascendancy to our new home: “And I saw a new heaven and a new earth: for the first heaven and the first earth were passed away…” Revelation 21:1

.

And every time we hear of some really horrible events, instead of becoming angry or discouraged, I must remind myself…“This world is not my home I’m just a-passin’ through!”

.

Such an attitude can greatly quell our anger, our fears, and our disillusionment with the daily news reports!

.

“This world is not my home,

I’m just a-passin’ through.

My treasures are laid up somewhere beyond the blue.

The angels beckon me from heaven’s open door.

And I can’t feel at home in this world anymore”?

A HEAVENLY HOBBY

.

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

“Lift up your eyes on high,

and behold Who hath created these things;

that brings out their host by number:

He calls them all by names by the greatness of His might,

for that He is strong in power;

not one faileth.”

Isaiah 40:26

.

“AND WHEN YE SEE THESE THINGS…

.

LOOK UP, LIFT UP YOUR HEAD”

.

There is one hobby which every ‘Noble Berean’ may take up, which only compliments the pursuit of the heavenly Prize.

.

Yes, Signs Of Heaven becomes a wonderfully rewarding hobby which, unlike many less meaningful hobbies, pays off with rich, heavenly rewards. Everlasting rewards!

.

And unlike the person in this photo with equipment, all you need is fairly good vision, and a dark, starry night.

.

And once a person really gets to know these heavenly messengers, it will become very apparent that the message connected with these signs is truly a message to be heeded.

.

Thus will the Christian be able to share this message with others. And there are perhaps many nuances and hidden biblical truths to these signs which have yet to be discovered.

FIRST FIND ORION & 7 STARS

.Orion Constellation

The very first step in finding these many constellations, should be to find the two main constellations: Orion, and the 7 Stars (aka, The Big Dipper).

.

7 stars as Cross

These two constellations represent Christ (Orion), and His Church (7 Stars).

.

And just as these are the easiest constellations to find, so too, the first place to begin studying the Bible is the Four Gospels (Matthew, Mark, Luke, John).

.

These four books present Christ and His Church, when He walked the earth, just as Orion and the 7 Stars represent Christ and His Church, as seen up in the heavens.

.

Then, once you are comfortable finding these two constellations, you can begin to locate the next closest constellations, and so on.

Many people are dismayed, upset, and perplexed, all because it seems as if destructive forces are breaking down and tearing apart the very backbone and fabric of this society.

https://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:Jazz_Jennings_2016.jpg.

Even our school systems are becoming lawless by their very wicked policy of grooming small children, encouraging them to embrace sexual perversion.

.

Our government is rapidly bringing itself into financial ruin because of excess spending and endless borrowing.

And much of the populace no longer cares for the rule of law, but some are even beginning to engage in mob rule, and occasionally even mob violence!

.

Many judges no longer rule impartially, but according to politics and political correctness.

What most people have forgotten, or are unaware of is, that it is God who rules over the affairs of Mankind. And He is the divine Judge. And He will render unto Mankind the just recompense of our ways!

“Submit yourselves to every ordinance of man”

For example, even among the reputed, “upright” citizens of this society, there has been an erosion of morality.

.

To a large extent, the general populace no longer obeys many of the required ordinances of man.

.http://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:FEMA_-_33788_-_County_building_inspector_at_a_FEMA_supplied_mobile_home_in_California.jpg

Many seemingly upright citizens will cheat on their income taxes.

.

Many will begin a project around the house which requires obtaining a building permit of some kind, and ignore those requirements because of cost and inconvenience.

.

Many will ignore the laws and speed limits on the streets and highways.

Romans 3:18

.

Well, there are many areas of life in which we have broken the laws.

.

And why has this happened?

.

Simple! The fear of God is no longer restraining most people. Yes, there is a lack of healthy fear in these atheistic societies for this world’s Divine Lawgiver!

“He that is faithful in that which is least is faithful also in much”

.

And so, God looks down on this lawlessness and eventually decides, “to give every man according to his ways, and according to the fruit of his doings.“. Jeremiah 17:10

.

God is removing the restraints from Mankind. And that decadent society opens its floodgates to corruption and lawlessness.

.

And that is what we are now seeing in this society!

“Be afflicted and mourn and weep!”

.

What must be done is, for any man, woman, or child, who desires to escape the awful judgments of God, to turn away from our own individual lawlessness, and pray for God’s chastening Hand http://www.wikigallery.org/wiki/painting_198722/William-Brassey-Hole/The-sorrow-of-king-Davidto purify us from our iniquity! This is our only hope!

.

Listen…“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

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.”

James 4:4, 8-10

.

Here is the prescribed remedy for our backsliding ways!

.

And this is not just some 24-hour work! No this is a prescription for a lifetime! And it will be our joy to enter into this type of relationship with our Lord. Yes, repentance is a joyful work, even though it may be mingled with many tears, even as it is written by Paul in 2nd Corinthians 6:10…“As sorrowful, yet alway rejoicing…”

LOCATING THIS CONSTELLATION GROUP…

.

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).

.

 

.

.

.

.

THE VALLEY OF DECISION CONSTELLATION GROUP.

Valley of Decision & O Destroying Mtn. Constellations

.

They appear in mid-summer in the eastern skies in pre-dawn hours. These are made of Cassiopeia (mount on left), and various stars from the Andromeda Constellation (valley) Pegasus (Mount of Cursing (middle mount) & Destroying Mount (right)), and Pisces (Broad Way to Hell). The galaxy which appears to be climbing the Mountain of Blessing is the Andromeda Galaxy

.

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

The Return of Elijah,

.

Part 4:

“Mothers & Children”

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

.

.

.

 

.

.

The last three devotionals (click here to read), concerned the fathers and their children, even as it is written about the return of Elijah…

“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

.

Well, here we are at the end of time, and Elijah hasn’t shown up yet, or so it seems. And the above passage says that, “he (Elijah) shall turn the heart of the fathers to the children and the heart of the children to their fathers.”

But what about the mothers and their children?

.

Yes, both fathers AND mothers share an equal responsibility in raising children who will one day be fitted for Heaven.

.

Well, by scrolling down this page, Ellen White has a wonderful little chapter dedicated to mothers and how they might raise their children in such a way that they will grow up to be a blessing to Heaven and a blessing to this world as well…

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…

.

“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

“Look not thou upon the wine when it is red, when it gives his colour in the cup, when it moves itself aright. At the last it biteth like a serpent, and stingeth like an adder.” Proverbs 23:31, 32

.

.

.

.

There is a biblical concept that is so important, that none living in these last days should be ignorant of…

.

And just what is that vitally important concept?

.

It is the concept of being a watchman…

.

Listen…“Watch ye therefore: for ye know not when the Master of the house cometh, at even, or at midnight, or at the cockcrowing, or in the morning: Lest coming suddenly He find you sleeping. And what I say unto you I say unto all, Watch!”  Mark 13:35-37

.

Here Jesus warns each and every one of us to be watchful! Not to be asleep!

.

.

.

.

.

ABSORBED IN THE BUSY-NESS OF LIFE

.

Now this is not saying that the Christian shouldn’t get a good night’s sleep. No, but this is saying, instead, that we are not to get so absorbed in the busy-ness of everyday life that we forget that we are in the midst of a battle for our souls…

.

Listen…“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.” Luke 21:34, 35

.

So here are the very words of Jesus as He warns us against getting caught up in the cares and pleasures of life only to find ourselves all entangled in the snare that is coming upon the whole world!

.

.

.

.

.

WHEN THE WORLD BEGINS TO SEEM NICE

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:New_york_times_square-terabass.jpg

.

The Wise Man, Solomon had this proverb…“Look not thou upon the wine when it is red, when it gives his colour in the cup, when it moves itself aright. At the last it biteth like a serpent, and stingeth like an adder.” Proverbs 23:31, 32

.

And while Solomon is speaking against literal wine-drinking, he is also speaking of a much greater truth: namely, he is warning against allowing Satan to make this present world to seem okay. 

.

In other words, when Solomon says concerning wine, “when it moves itself aright”, he is also warning us that if we let our guard down, the world might begin to look like, “a pretty nice place, after all!”

.

The world begins to, “move itself aright.”

GETTING TOO BUSY!

ABOVE PICTURE: Dream Maker of Babylon - Signs Of Heaven.org

.

And Solomon also warns…“For a dream cometh through the multitude of busyness…” Ecclesiastes 5:3

.

These two verses are saying the same thing. The prideful ambitions and the pleasurable dreams of life in this present selfish world come upon us “unawares”, when we get too busy with the affairs of this life! (read Luke 21:34-36). 

.

And this is when the world’s wine begins to, “move itself aright!”

.

.

.

.

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

Now just how do we keep from allowing Satan such a liberty as to make the world seem okay to us?

SIGNS OF HEAVEN’S WARNINGS

.http://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:Global_warning%5E_-_geograph.org.uk_-_1719373.jpg

Well, the last two years of devotionals have been dedicated to doing just that!

.

These devotionals have given continual warnings against mingling too much with the world!

.

And still, it is so easy to nestle back down and go to sleep (spiritually speaking).

.

KEEP THY HEART WITH ALL DILIGENCE!

read Proverbs 4:23-27

.

http://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:Shoppers_on_Dundas,_near_Yonge.jpgIn other words, we must constantly guard against too much contact with evil communications. Television and radio programs, for instance, are especially designed to make this world look very good and normal. They have a way of making us begin to trust, yes, even to love the various institutions of the world: our favorite sports teams, our favorite bank, our favorite car, our favorite TV shows, our favorite celebrities, our favorite shopping mall, etc., etc…

.

You get the point, don’t you? In other words, Satan knows that by constant contact with these various elements of the world, we begin to think of them as the norm. They even begin to seem more normal than Heaven!

LOVING THIS WORLD IS SO EASY!

.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:Martin,_John_-_Satan_presiding_at_the_Infernal_Council_-_1824.JPGBut truth-be-told, this world should look strange to us! We need to see these things of the world, for what they really are: merely the self-centered inventions and creations of Satan, which all together, comprise his kingdom of selfishness. 

.

Yes, as this website has said, over and over again, Satan is called, “the god of this world” 2nd Corinthians 4:4. We just cannot let this truth slip from our minds. And Satan has so designed this present world with so much supposed “goodness”, that it is really easy to fall back into the world, isn’t it? It’s so easy to love this deceptive world!

.

And so, just how do we accomplish this? How do we keep from allowing the world to, “move itself aright?” How do we not let, “a dream cometh”, as it says in Ecclesiastes?

.

“AWAKE YE DRUNKARDS!”

see Joel 1:5 & Isaiah 29:9, 10

.

Yes, how are we to keep from allowing the world to come and sweep us away like a giant tidal wave? 

.

Well, the simple answer is, we must stop drinking Babylon’s Wine! We must sober up! Yes, just as a little wine relaxes a person’s sensibilities, so too, the wine of Babylon (the world) relaxes our vigilance as watchmen on the walls of Zion!

.

Yes, a little TV, a little sports, a little comedy, a little social get-together, etc., etc., and before we know it, we’re now making plans to fulfill our little everyday dreams! And we might even be making plans to fulfill some big dream too!

.

Yes, O Stranger and Pilgrim! Yes, O Soldier of the Cross! Yes, O Watchman on the Walls of Zion! We must remain vigilant, especially in this hour of trial which is now coming upon the earth to try the hearts of professing Christians!

.

.

.

.

.

ON ENCHANTED GROUND!

.

And so it is, that this website has trumpeted the warning, to stay awake! To keep alerthttp://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:Bastille_Tumble_2010_Toulouse_Wine.JPG! To remember that we are walking on, “enchanted ground”! And to remember that the narcotic-like air of this Babylonish world is so intoxicating! And not to forget how easy it is to fall into spiritual slumber!

.

Paul focuses on this truth…“Be not deceived: evil communications corrupt good manners. Awake to righteousness,” 1st Corinthians 15:33, 34

.

Here Paul combines two seemingly separate truths: the corrupting influence of worldly associations, and to awake from our spiritual slumber.

.

But it is no coincidence that he placed these truths together! Because worldly influences are designed by Satan to put us into a spiritual death-like slumber!

.

.

.

.

.

GOOD NEWS…BUT…

.

The Good News is, that God is very willing to help us to remain watchful.

.

But we must stay away, as far as possible, from worldly associations which we know are harmful.

.

Oh yes, there will be family obligations. Oh yes, there are employment necessities. And we must do our necessary shopping and have many other similar contacts with the world.

.

But we must not voluntarily drink Babylon’s wine!

.

And even our necessary daily contact with the world, should be under the protective fortification of ceaseless prayer, and day & night contemplation of the Bible!

.

WHILE JOHN WATCHED JESUS

.

And who should know better than Peter, the following warning…“But the end of all things is at hand: be ye therefore sober, and watch unto prayer”? 1st Peter 4:7

.

Yes, it was Peter who warmed himself by the fire with unbelievers on the very night of his denial of Jesus.

.

And we must not make the same mistake as Peter, by warming ourselves by the fires of our worldly associations!

.

We must rather be like John, who kept as close to Jesus as possible, on that fateful night!

The Pleiades: Mystery Babylon: Mother of Harlots

WINE-CUP IN HER HAND

.

As you can see, this Mystery Harlot, the Pleiades Constellation, has a cup of red wine in her hand. This actually is a single red star. But it only confirms that we are seeing this constellation correctly.

.

And by the way, this entire cluster of stars reminds us http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:ConcordGrapes1.jpgof a cluster of grapes, does it not? Yes, this was the forbidden tree in the garden! This was the forbidden fruit which the serpent (Satan) convinced the woman to drink! And so, this Pleiades harlot-woman is a symbol of Eve, as she convinced her husband to eat of that fruit.

.

Noble Bereans,

Part 8:

“Re-thinking Harold Camping & T.U.L.I.P.”

“Charity never faileth:

but whether there be prophecies, they shall fail;

whether there be tongues, they shall cease;

whether there be knowledge, it shall vanish away.

For we know in part, and we prophesy in part.”

1st Corinthians 13:8, 9

.

.

.

.

So, in this little series, the subject of those noble Bereans has been introduced.

.

And today, it is still worthy of a little more exploration, regarding another area of concern.

.

Let’s look at the key Bible passage…

 “And the brethren immediately sent away Paul and Silas by night unto Berea:

who coming there, went into the synagogue of the Jews.

These were more noble than those in Thessalonica,

in that they received the word with all readiness of mind,

and searched the scriptures daily,

whether those things were so.”

Acts 17:10, 11

.

St Paul Preaching in Athens (Raphael, 1515) – Wikipedia – US public domain

.

.

.

.

.

AN OPEN-MINDED SPIRIT IN BEREA

.

Okay, so these in Berea were more noble, because they: 

.

1. “Received the Wohttp://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:Holy_bible.jpgrd with all readiness of mind.” 

.

2. “And searched the Scriptures daily, whether those things were so.”

.

And so, these Bereans were ready to receive new teachings, which no doubt, conflicted with the supposed, “orthodox” teachings of that day.

.

Thus, there was an open-mindedness which permeated their hearts, and a willingness to search the Scriptures daily, in hopes that these seemingly new teachings were indeed true!

.

A FAILED PREDICTION?

.

A few years ago, a certain radio Bible teacher made the seemingly failed prediction http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:Harold_Camping.jpgthat May 21st, 2011 would be the last day of earth’s existence, because of the long-afore-promised return of Christ in the clouds of glory.

.

And of course, when that day came and went, the world began throwing verbal stones at Harold Camping.

.

But in reality, nothing failed!

.

No, nothing in Camping’s prediction failed! But God purposely allowed this tarrying-time to awaken His sleeping saints, to prepare them to shine forth in the soon-coming, Day of the Lord!

.

.

.

.

OUR SECOND WAKE-UP CALL

.

Well Okay, maybe you could say that Camping’s May 21st, 2011 prediction was an error, since he didn’t realize that there was to be a tarrying time, so that God can complete His victory over Satan’s kingdom of this present, selfish world.

.

But the Lord intentionally allowed this error, so as to give the world its second, “wake-up call”.

.

And God’s sleeping saints really needed more time to prepare to meet their God.

.

Yes, God purposely wanted this call to be made that, “the end has come!”

.

.

.

.

CAMPING A VERY FALLIBLE HUMAN

.

But Harold Camping, when alive, was the first one to admit that he was very capable of error.

.

After all, on each one of his nightly telephone call-in programs, he probably cautioned his listeners 6 to 10 times per night, “Don’t trust me! I have feet of clay! Trust only the Bible! The Bible, the Bible, the Bible! The Bible is the only infallible Word of truth!”

.

Every nightly call-in program was replete with this same warning, “Read the Bible! Study your Bible!”, instead of trusting Harold Camping, or any other Bible teacher!

BIBLE VERSES PICTURED IN THE HEAVENS

.

“With the hoofs of his horses shall he tread down all thy streets: he shall slay thy people by the sword, and thy strong garrisons shall go down to the ground.” Ezekiel 26:12

Holy-Ghost-Rider Constellation

.

THIS STAR-CHART: This is a Wikipedia star-chart, in which this site’s editor has sketched in these three constellation (without the Holy-Ghost-Rider Constellation). Notice how the right front hoof is trampling on the tail of the Dragon. Also notice his eye is a star.It’s best seen when in the western half of the sky. It is found in mid-sky traveling from east to west. In January, it is in the west after midnight. As winter progresses, it can be seen earlier and earlier in the evening. a dark sky with good star-visibility is best, but not absolutely necessary to see this constellation. It is found on the opposite side of the Dragon Constellation from Orion. And as already stated, this Goodly Horse Constellation can be seen best in mid-winter when it is in the western side of the sky, and you are looking at it while you are facing west. The nose and head of this horse is partly made from the Perseus Constellation. The tail and rear end is partly of the Cassiopeia ConstellationThe hind-leg is made partly of stars from the Andromeda Constellation.

THIS HOLY-GHOST-RIDER

.

Now one thing that is noticeable and makes this constellation even more dramatic, is the fact that the Milky Way runs right through it. And the question that must be asked is, “What biblical implications does this constellation/Milky Way connection have?” Well, very simply put, if stars represent Believers, then this rider works in the world through His True-Worshippers, to a great extent.

.

WHY IS THIS CONSTELLATION SO INCOMPLETE IN APPEARANCE

.

So why is this constellation merely an outline? Well it does show his back, rear end and leg…and arm. But unlike, say, Orion, this constellation is very vague, even mysterious in appearance. Almost vacant in appearance. Yes this horseman represents Christ.

.

But even more than this, it represents the Holy Spirit of Christ. And as we all know, the Holy Spirit is very, very, un-intrusive, almost impossible to detect His presence. Hence, this constellation is perhaps the most faint of all the constellations of Signs Of Heaven!

October 18 (Noble Bereans, Part 26 – “The Message of the Third Angel of Revelation 14”)

Daily Devotional, Year 4: October 17

.

.

.

.

Noble Bereans,

.

Part 25:

“The Message of the Second Angel of Revelation 14”

To read part 1, click here…”September 2nd (Noble Bereans?)”

.

.

.

.

.

So, in this little series, the subject of those noble Bereans has been introduced. And today, it is still worthy of a little more exploration into another area of concern.

.

Let’s look at the key Bible passage… “And the brethren immediately sent away Paul and Silas by night unto Berea: who coming there, went into the synagogue of the Jews. These were more noble than those in Thessalonica, in that they received the word with all readiness of mind, and searched the scriptures daily, whether those things were so.” Acts 17:10, 11

.

.

.

.

.

.

AN OPEN-MINDED SPIRIT IN BEREA

.

Okay, so those in Berea were more noble, because they:

.

1. “Received the Word with all readiness of mind.”

.http://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:La_Bible,_Notre-Dame_du_Taur,_septembre_2011.jpg

2. “And searched the Scriptures daily, whether those things were so.”

.

And so, the Bereans were ready to receive new teachings, which no doubt, conflicted with the supposed, “orthodox” teachings of that day.

.

Thus there was an open-mindedness which permeated their hearts, and a willingness to search the Scriptures daily, in hopes that these seemingly new teachings were indeed true!

2ND ANGEL’S MESSAGE

.

http://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:Burgkmair_whore_babylon_color.jpgIn today’s devotional, the message of the 2nd angel of Revelation 14 will be our focus… ”And there followed another angel, saying, Babylon is fallen, is fallen, that great city, because she made all nations drink of the wine of the wrath of her fornication.” Revelation 14:8

.

Here is a message which, while written in veiled allegorical language, yet with a little study can readily be seen to be speaking of the apostate church-world.

.

Yes, while the Old Testament reveals that Babylon is a spiritual picture of Old Testament Jerusalem, nevertheless, Galatians 4:25, 26 reveals Jerusalem in the following revelation by Paul… ”For this Agar (Sara’s handmaid) is mount Sinai in Arabia, and answereth to Jerusalem which now is, and is in bondage with her children. But Jerusalem (represented by Sara) which is above is free, which is the mother of us all.”

.

So, Paul here reveals that both Sara and her handmaid, Hagar, were given by God to be spiritual allegories representing both the Church-apostate as well as the Church-faithful. Yes, here we have the two divisions within the church-world: those in the Church who are unsaved, and still in bondage to their sins, and those who have truly become “Born Again” into the kingdom of Heaven, which is, “the Jerusalem above”. And Hagar represents false salvation by useless human works, while Sara represents true Salvation by the promise of God’s grace.

.

And so, when the Bible speaks of spiritual Babylon, we need not look any further than the Jerusalem which is still in bondage to sin, i.e., the apostate portion of the Church.

HAROLD CAMPING

.

Now there was one man who warned of these things to the world. His name was Harold Camping. And he faithfully preached that today’s church-world has become apostate, and as a result, has been vomited out of the mouth of Jesus, even as it is written…”So then because thou art lukewarm, and neither cold nor hot, I will spue thee out of My mouth.” Revelation 3:16. Today’s Church, because of a lack of religious persecution, has gone headlong after the vain pleasures and ambitious pursuits of the world.

.

But for over 30 years, Harold Camping faithfully encouraged his radio audience to attend church each week, even though he realized how apostate they were becoming.

.

“Do the best you can to find a church which is reasonably faithful to the Bible. Don’t set your expectations too high”, Camping could often be heard advising his nightly callers.

.

Harold-Camping – former CEO of Family Radio

.

.

.

.

.

“FOR THE TIME WILL COME WHEN THEY WILL NOT ENDURE SOUND DOCTRINE”

2nd Timothy 4:3

.

However, in the last 20 years or so, of his 50-year ministry, Camping finally understood that it was his duty to give the 2nd angel’s message that the churches had surpassed the limits of God’s forbearance.

.

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

And so, after much study and much prayer he eventually reversed his stance by finally giving the message… “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. For her sins have reached unto heaven, and God hath remembered her iniquities.” Revelation 18:4, 5.

.

And being a master mathematician, Camping calculated many biblical time prophecies concerning the time of the end, when the Revelation 18 message was to be given to… ”Come out of her, My people.”

.

And no, Harold Camping was not an actual angel, but was merely a fallible human giving a message symbolized by an angel flying in Heaven.

ERRORS IN THE CHURCHES

.

https://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:Ellen_G_White.jpgEven though the Three Angel’s messages was first preached via Ellen G. White, during the last half of the 1800’s, her message went mostly unheeded by the world, and even to a great extent by her own fellow church leaders in the Seventh Day Adventist denomination.

.

But God raised up Camping to repeat these errors, plus additional errors which Mrs. White was not enlightened to present.

.

.

CAMPING CONSTANTLY UPLIFTED THE BIBLE

.

One of Camping’s great teachings was on the infallibility of the Bible. As a matter of fact, Camping oft repeated a daily warning…”Don’t trust me! Study the Bible for your own selves! Check out what I teach against what the Bible says! I too have feet of clay, and am not to be trusted as the Bible is to be trusted. The Bible is the only infallible Word of God! Study, study, study!”

.

On Camping’s daily 90-minute question/answer radio talk-show, he could be heard faithfully uttering this disclaimer perhaps a dozen times each night…”Don’t trust me! Trust only the Bible!”

.

.

.

.

.

STUDIED 4 TO 6 HOURS DAILY

.

Nevertheless, in spite of his several erroneous beliefs, http://www.wikiart.org/en/gustave-dore/baruch-writes-jeremiah-s-prophecies#supersized-artistPaintings-201408Camping was a self-taught theologian of the first order!

.

Aware of the many other gross errors being promulgated in the modern-day seminaries, Camping studied for his own self, for about an average of 4-6 hours daily. And his daily radio Bible studies thoroughly scoured the Bible, word-by-word, verse-by-verse, often taking several years of individual daily 25-minute audio Bible studies to complete even one particular book of the Bible. For instance, his study into Jeremiah contains well over 600 individual 25-minute audio studies!

.

And in those daily studies he thoroughly dissected each verse, often referring to the Hebrew for word analysis, plus much cross-referencing of other related passages found elsewhere in the Bible.

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:Brooklyn_Museum_-_Study_for_The_Cross_and_the_World......_-_Thomas_Cole.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).

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.

.http://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:Um_moinho_dominando_a_ba%C3%ADa_%C3%A0_luz_lunar.jpg

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

.This is a drawing of a winter-time total lunar eclipse, first published in Bilder- (Picture Atlas of the Stemenwelt) in 1888

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”)

Daily Devotional, Year 4 – December 4 (Our Favorite Babysitter: Satan! Part 9: “Public Schools”)

Daily Devotional, Year 4 – December 4

.

.

Our Favorite Babysitter: Satan!

.

Part 9:

“Public Schools”

To read Part 1, click here… FEBRUARY 3 (Our Favorite Babysitter: Satan!)

.

.

.

.

As the western nations began to transform from an agrarian economy to the industrial age, public schools began to make a whole lot of sense! They made a wonderful babysitter for parents who needed to go to their jobs each day. And of course, parents turned over much of their children’s upbringing to the governments.

.

Of course, this was part of the master-plane by “the god of this world”, Lucifer, now given the office of “the Devil and Satan”.

.

Now Lucifer could slowly transform the public schools into his very own indoctrination centers

.

And Satan now enlisted a myriad of secularists and atheists to begin to purge out any trace of Christianity in the succeeding generations of school-age children.

.

And parents could now be freed up to pursue their jobs and careers. Even mothers were now free to do whatever they wanted to do each weekday.

.

Everyone was now happy with this arrangement. Everyone was happy, that is, except God!

.

Yes, God was very unhappy, because He knew exactly what Satan was doing behind the scenes. Millions of unseen evil angels were now working stealthfully through this massive secular institution called public schooling, to turn out God-hating, atheistic antichrists.

.

Now, while there were many dedicated teachers and administrators in the public-school systems, nevertheless, because they chose to live free from Heaven’s authority, made them useful pawns for “the god of this world” to use in this, his massive world-indoctrination camp.

.

.

.

.

.

.

“GOOD NEWS FROM A FAR COUNTRY”

Proverbs 25:25

.

Well, the very Good News is, that God has allowed us time to “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

.

Yes, this Babylonish world-system is ripe for God’s final judgment.

.

And anyone and everyone, from parents, children, and teachers, grandparents, singles, inmates, government leaders, etc., are invited to join in the end-time exodus out of this tragic world. Yes, there is awaiting us an everlasting world: a new world, in which we will be forever happy and forever young!

.

.

.

.

.

NOTHING MORE IMPORTANT THAN OUR CHILDREN’S SALVATION!

.

Oh yes, the road ahead may be rocky and rough.

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

But just remember what Jesus endured to save our soul!

.

There is no sacrifice too great if it means salvation for our children!

.

May the Lord bless us in this endeavor!

Have you been watching the news lately?! A lot of very angry protesters! And in so many places at the same time!

.

Have you ever wondered why these events seem so well-orchestrated? Doesn’t it seem odd how so many people could get so worked up over the same thing?

.

Oh yes, people might just assume that some Dr. Evil might be spending billions to orchestrate such movements. Or maybe this high-tech world is the culprit. Yes, many social/political commentators are now blaming the social media for creating a “mob-mentality”, especially among younger, more naive people. And many are blaming the public schools and universities for grooming young people into evil ideologies.

.

And of course, most of these protestors actually do have legitimate complaints about this or that. Or at least, they think they have legitimate complaints.

.

Well, all these factors are, no doubt, greatly contributing to societal tsunamis which sweep through the world, one-after-another!

.

And not only protests! Just think about the pop music world, and how young teens all over the world simply go crazy over some new pop-singer-idol! Screaming and fainting young fans around the world in adoration over some young pimple-faced rock-singers.

.

Or maybe some new craze, like surfing, or skateboarding, or dancing, or fashion, or vehicle, or new ideology…

.

Yes, yes, yes, this instant communication world is greatly the reason for all these societal-tsunamis which sweep over the world. And yes, there are a few Dr. Evils out there, giving their billions to incite mob-violence.

.

But there is a Dr. Evil who is the true orchestrator of all societal tsunamis. He is the unseen spirit of evil whom the Bible refers to as “the god of this world”. 2nd Corinthians 4:4

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.” Revelation 12:3 

.

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.

Dragon of Revelation 12 Constellation

.

 

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).

JEW-WATER?!

.

https://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:Bubbler.jpgMany years ago, two young boys were walking by some religious schoolground. The first boy said to the other, “Let’s get a drink from this water-fountain.”

.

Out of the clear blue, the other young boy disdainfully retorted, “Naw, that’s ‘Jew-water’!” The first boy didn’t answer back, but looked dumbfounded at such a comment (probably mostly because he was a student at that same religious school).

.

But the fact is, the second young boy had absolutely no idea what he was saying!

.

After all, it wasn’t even a Jewish school, but actually was operated by some Christian denomination.

.

Years later, the other boy, now fully grown, thought back and wondered, “Why in the world did I make such an outrageously harsh and stupid denunciation, especially since I had not the slightest clue what a Jew actually was at such a young age?!”

“We are become a reproach to our neighbors, a scorn and derision to them that are round about us.”

Psalm 79:4

.

The Bible reveals that Satan has been attacking Israel and the Jewish people almost since the days of Abraham. Certainly, Abraham’s son, Isaac, had a number of his wells stolen by Philistines and others. (See Genesis 26)

.

The Old Testament is literally saturated with true accounts of Israel’s conflicts with Philistines and others.

“For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against…spiritual wickedness in high places.”

Listen to God’s Word…

that ye may be able to stand against the wiles of the devil.

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 6:11, 12

.

Here we see that our true enemy is that invisible spirit of evil, who works through the human race to create all the sins and troubles which this world is literally dripping with!

“Marvel not, my brethren, if the world hate you”

1st John 3:13

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

.

It’s truly amazing to see how quickly the hatred for the Jewish people has intensified and spread its venomous tentacles in every direction!

.

But should we be surprised to see all the hatred which exists today against Jews? Oh yes, such hatred is only to be expected by those who live in today’s “Philistine” (This name is now corrupted to “Palestine”).

.

Nevertheless, it’s amazing to see the same hatred for Jews by a great multitude from practically all nations! It is the same hatred which Adolph Hitler and the Nazis had for the Jewish people!

.

.

.

.

.

THE MAINSTREAM MEDIA: “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.

And this hatred is largely propagated by today’s media Goliaths, whom the Bible prophesies “and he spake as a dragon”!

.

Just go on the Internet and be horrified at all the vitriolic disdain cast down upon the Jewish race! Or read about the violent attacks on Jews in many western nations! And it is very probable that many hate-filled young adults, until recently, could not even be able to locate Israel on a map! And yet, they somehow have an innate hatred for Jewish people!

.

No, but rather, Satan will increasingly turn his guns on the Christian community, as well: on those who are the “called, and chosen, and faithful.” Revelation 17:14

If There’s a Devil, Then There Must Be a God!

.

Here’s the point to this article and an epilogue to its beginning little story about the young boy who didn’t want to drink supposed “Jew Water”.

.

You see, this boy grew up being thoroughly indoctrinated by society and years of public schooling into the ideology of atheism. 

.

However, one night this confused little boy (now grown, about 30 years old) had an encounter with demonic spirits-beings. And instantly he realized, to his utter shock and amazement, that there actually is an unseen spiritual realm. And by simple logic, he concluded that if Satan exists, then there obviously must be God! And if God and Satan exist, then the Bible must likewise be true!

.

And this is the main truth which today’s article presents: this world’s innate hatred for Jews cannot merely be coincidental, and should convince us that we are living in the midst of a cosmic conflict between the unseen forces of good and evil!

.

.

.

“GOOD NEWS FROM A FAR COUNTRY!”

Proverbs 25:25

http://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File%3ABible-Study-Group.jpg.

The Good News is, that God is now calling all people to return to Him, crying out for a new heart, which will put a fervent brotherly love and compassion, not only for the Jewish people, but for each and every lost soul!

.

And, for those who are suffering persecution from the loyal citizenry of this antichrist world-system, God is allowing these troubles in the hope that we might pray to our Savior, “that we may be delivered from unreasonable and wicked men…”, and further cry out, “Father, forgive them; for they know not what they do.”

.

And The Nations Were Angry!

.

Part 14

“Satan: Ye Shall Know Him by His Hate!”

.

.

.

.

.

.

.

.

“And the nations were angry, and Thy wrath is come,

https://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:Sagittarius_IAU.svg.

and the time of the dead, that they should be judged,

.

and that thou shouldest give reward unto Thy servants the prophets,

.

and to the saints, and them that fear Thy name, small and great; and shouldest destroy them which destroy the earth.
.

And the temple of God was opened in heaven, and there was seen in His temple the Ark of his testament”

.

Revelation 11:18, 19

The Book of Job (pronounced with a long “O”) was an inside look at how “the god of this world”, Lucifer, now titled “Satan”, created circumstances designed to cause Job to angrily lash out at God.

(2nd Corinthians 4:4 for “god of this world” reference)

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

First, Satan caused Job to lose all of his vast wealth. He then killed all ten of Job’s children who were together, celebrating a sibling’s birthday.

.

Then, if all that wasn’t horrific enough, Satan covered Job’s body with puss-filled boils.

.

And if that wasn’t enough, Job’s three friends came and began to accuse and criticize Job, saying he deserved all his troubles!

.

.

.

.

.

.

.

.

“Now all these things happened (to God’s Old Testament People) for examples: and they are written for our admonition…”

1st Corinthians 10:11

.

As this above verse from 1st Corinthians reveals, all those Old Testament stories were orchestrated by God to be examples of the evils which everyday people also must encounter in this world of sin (hopefully and prayerfully, not as severe as what Job endured!).

.

.

.

.

.

.

.

.

.

“In all this Job sinned not, nor charged God foolishly.”

Job 1:22  

https://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:Atheists_at_the_Twin_Cities_Pride_Parade_2011.jpg.

And just as Satan attempted to provoke Job to angrily shake his fist at God as being the cause of all his troubles, so too, Satan will likewise attempt to provoke all humans, especially Believers to become angry at God.

.

Quite often, secularists will point out all the bad things in the world as an example of why there cannot be a loving God.

“And if there is a God,” they often say, “He must be a horrible monster-tyrant!”

.

“And the nations were angry, and thy wrath is come” Revelation 11:18

.

Just witness all the ways in which Satan is now stirring up the anger in the world!

.

National leaders allowing their borders to be flooded with foreigners, many of which are committing crimes and hating the very nations which have welcomed them in.

.

The Internet has become a hotbed of hateful rhetoric, stirring up multitudes, especially young people to angry and even violence!

.

Politicians saying provocative things, causing a civil war between opposing political parties!

.

School-children being groomed by many teachers/administrators to embrace gender confusion and sexual perversion.

.

reckless spending by the government causing massive inflation and possible national backruptcy.

.

.

.

SATAN’S FOOTPRINTS & FINGERPRINTS PROVE HIS EXISTENCE!

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

As we behold all the evil, tragedy, sorrow, and suffering in the world, it should wake us up that there is, indeed, a literal personage called Lucifer, the Devil, and Satan!

.

And just look at how well orchestrated much of the evil is! All of a sudden, some new evil arises, all over the world! This too, is evidence that such phenomena are being orchestrated by unseen evil agencies.

.

.

.

.

OPPORTUNITY FOR MATURITY & GROWTH

.

While the humans are obviously perplexed by all the wickedness in this fallen world, Christians are encouraged by God to take advantage of the situation. In other words, as each Christian encounters various acts of evil during each day, they may use each and every adverse incident to their own advantage and Christian growth.

.

.

.

.

.

.

“whosoever shall smite thee on thy right cheek, turn to him the other also.”

.

For example, when a rude cashier insults us, we can react in with Christlike silence, patience, and forgiveness, remembering Jesus’ words…“But I say unto you, That ye resist not evil: but whosoever shall smite thee on thy right cheek, turn to him the other also.”  Matthew 5:39

.

.

.

.

.

.

.

Or as we encounter some drug-addicted street-person causing a public spectacle, we can, instead of condemning them, sympathize with their unfortunate life of poor choices, caused by the “Enemy of Souls” who has beaten them down at every turn throughout their life!

.

.

.

.

.

.

Or when we read of some unjust word, deed, or lawlessness committed by political leaders, we can cry out to God, “Father, forgive them, for they know not what they do!” Luke 23:34

.

.

.

.

.

.

“And not only so, but we glory in tribulations also: knowing that tribulation worketh patience…But let patience have her perfect work, that ye may be perfect and entire, wanting nothing.”

Romans 5:3 & James 1:4

.

In conclusion, God has allowed evil to continue for a number of reasons. Not only is God showing mankind that selfishness only leads to unhappiness, suffering, and death, but He also uses mankind’s evil to teach us patience, forgiveness, sympathy, and understanding for all lost souls. And even our own sins teach us that we are no better than others, and desperately in need of God’s grace and mercy!

.

 

.

“THIS WORLD IS NOT MY HOME, I’M JUST A-PASSIN’ THROUGH!”

.

It might do well for us to learn this above song, “The World is not My Home, I’m Just A-passin’ Through”, and sing a few lyrics everytime I’m tempted to get angry over some injustice in this world.

.

.

THE DRAGON of REVELATION 12 CONSTELLATION . The Dragon Constellation can be located by finding Orion in winter months. The Dragon is to Orion’s left, and the Dragon’s mouth is right next to Orion’s shield. This Dragon’s mouth is the V-like constellation The Hyades Cluster, which is the very same constellation that comprises the head of Taurus the Bull. In other words, Hyades is also known as the head of Taurus the Bull. And Hyades is the mouth of this Dragon.

.

Revelation 12 Dragon w/text

.

The tip of the Dragon’s tail is composed of that star-cluster known as The Pleiades. The Pleiades is actually in the shape of a lion’s furry tassel tip of his tail. The sketch below shows this Pleiades as the tail tip.

.

Now with aid of a dark starry night, you may begin to connect this mouth and the tail with a very long body in an oval shape. The front and back legs are very well-defined with stars. The front legs are made partially of Taurus. The back legs and rear fin are made of the Cetus Constellation. But the long oval-shaped body has relatively few stars, but can been seen, howbeit with a dark starry night. The four stars of the front fins are made partially of Taurus. This Dragon constellation appears in the eastern horizon about mid-summer in the pre-dawn hours, spewing his flood-waters northward toward the Woman of Revelation 12 (Woman in Travail). The Wave of Water is primarily composed of the Constellation Auriga. There are two more less bright stars which are closest to the Dragon’s mouth. These two dimmer stars are also part of this Wave of Water.

filling our hearts with food and gladness.”

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.

.http://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:Um_moinho_dominando_a_ba%C3%ADa_%C3%A0_luz_lunar.jpg

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

.This is a drawing of a winter-time total lunar eclipse, first published in Bilder- (Picture Atlas of the Stemenwelt) in 1888

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”)

Gabe

By admin On April 16th, 2024

One day almost 15 years ago, my daughter, Denise called me and tearfully shared her fears about having her first child and becoming a mother…“Dad! I’m so sad!”

“Why, Denise? What’s going on?”

“I’m just so afraid of becoming a parent”, Denise tearfully confessed. “I like my life! I like doing whatever I want, whenever I want! I don’t think I want all the responsibilities and demands of motherhood! I don’t want to give up my self-focused life!”

I’m not sure just how I responded to Denise, since she was already halfway along.

But that was the first and last time she lamented her fears to me about this new chapter in her life.

But, a few months passed and Natalie Jane was born. And Denise and Matt were so happy and proud to be new parents! And they began building their life around their little family.

But once again, Denise became “with child” a second time! I heard not even one complaint or tear-filled fear! Denise and Matt seemed to be settling quite nicely into their new responsibilities!

But Denise was so happy with her new life, she desperately wanted a third child. But it just didn’t seem to be God’s will for another child. And yet, after some sad disappointments, she was once again going to have one more child!

And before long, Gabe was born! Rambunctious and energetic, little Gabe came happily crashing into the world!

And now Matt and Denise have three fine children, Natalie, Connor, and Gabe! And Matt and Denise have become so focused on their children, dedicating themselves fully to rearing up their kids to be happy, healthy and fulfilled!

And it has been a great joy of mine to watch them all grow and thrive.

And it is a joy to see little Gabe growing up so nicely, receiving so much love from his parents.

And one of my regrets is that Denise’s loving Mother, Becky, is not here to experience these joys with us!

But my daily prayer is that one day, Becky and I will be able to walk along the highways and byways of eternity with our kids and grandkids!

LOVE, GRANDPA CHUCK!

“LOOKIN’ FOR A POT OF GOLD!”

(Lyric from the 1969 Creedence Clearwater hit, “Stuck In Lodi Again”)

.

Have you ever wished that God was like a genie in a bottle? And maybe you could get just three wishes: perhaps a long, healthy life, marital bliss, and a financial fortune to enjoy? 

.

Well this little excursion promised to be just that! 

.

https://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:160_%C4%9Cino.svgYes, maybe, just maybe God is perhaps a “genie in a bottle”, or some kind of a, “heavenly goose that lays golden eggs”!

.

As the songster once sang…“Seekin’ my fame and fortune, lookin’ for a pot of gold!”

FACT OR FANTASY?

.

https://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:The_Rake%27s_Progress_8.jpgWell, I couldn’t make up such a far-fetched and even crazy story; or maybe I should rather call it, “A true account”, which this chapter is.

.

But I’ll simply report it like it happened and you can decide if you’re going to believe it or just decide that, “The writer of this chapter is out of his ever-lovin’ gourd (like this poor deluded individual in an insane asylum, depicted in this very old picture to the right”).

.

Nevertheless, if you do decide that this is merely the work of a crazy man, never fear, you have plenty of established medical and psychiatric professionals who will backup your assertion 100%!

.

Anyway, I’ll mostly recount this true little story, trying not to make too much analysis, and let you decide for yourselves…

CHAPTER 22

“FANTASY ISLAND”

.

.

.

.

.

“DE PLANE! DE PLANE!”

www.foto-julius.at

.

We arrived at a little resort on the Pacific ocean. We parked our car, and went over to the little ferry, which would take us to this little island resort (not the island photo here, of course! Just a very tiny island).

.

But just as soon as we boarded the ferry, the spirit began talking in a sort of mocking way, “Oh yeah, this is your fantasy! This is your fantasy!” And actually, it did somewhat remind a person of Fantasy Island. Very beautiful and jungle-like.

.

So we boarded the ferry, and in a very short time, we arrived on the island. But the spirit kept telling me, “Yes Chuck, this is going to be your Fantasy Island!” And so I was somewhat anticipating a sort of exotic mystery (which would be a welcomed respite from the torment which I had been abundantly experiencing!).

.

Maybe I was to find riches here! Or maybe some promise of future glory!

.

Well whatever lay in store for me had great promise of being that proverbial, “pot of gold!”

FANTASY ISLAND TV SHOW

.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:Ricardo_Montalban_Herve_Villechaize_Fantasy_Island_1977.JPG

By the way, for your information, Fantasy Island was a hit TV series, in which various people went to a certain resort on an unnamed island, to have some semi-magical or semi-mystical dream-come-true experience. And there was often a life-lesson which would be learned by the participants, by the end of the show.

.

Carlos Montalban played Mr. Roarke, who orchestrated these semi-magical experiences each week. Well-cultured and always dressed in white, Mr. Roarke guided his guests into a fantasy which would often change the life of his guest…always for the better. Here’s what Wikipedia says about that show…

.

.

.

WIKIPEDIA, CONCERNING FANTASY ISLAND TV SERIES…

.

FANTASY ISLAND… Airing from 1978 to 1984, the original series starred Ricardo Montalbán as Mr. Roarke, the enigmatic overseer of a mysterious island somewhere in the Pacific Ocean, where people from all walks http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:Ricardo_Montalban_Herve_Villechaize_Fantasy_Island_1977.JPGof life could come and live out their fantasies, albeit for a price.

.

Roarke was known for his white suit and cultured demeanor, and was initially accompanied by an energetic sidekick, Tattoo, played by Hervé Villechaize. Tattoo would run up the main bell tower to ring the bell and shout “De plane! De plane!” to announce the arrival of a new set of guests at the beginning of each episode – Information courtesy Wikipedia.

.

.

.

.

.

.

“WHERE’S ROARKE?”…

.

So we arrived on the island, and immediately rented a little bungalow. It was only $15 American dollars per day, which even back then, was a bargain for an ocean-front resort, not to mention, this was an island resort!

.

And of course, I was totally focused on what the spirit hhttp://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:Ricardo_Montalban_Herve_Villechaize_Fantasy_Island_1977.JPGad in store for me, especially with his suggestions that this was gonna be some sort of Fantasy Island experience. I wondered about what might happen, to make this experience like that TV show. I honestly was looking around to see if there was some sort of Mr. Roarke, or at least a “Tattoo”. But there was no Mr. Roarke here to conduct anyone’s fantasy, and not even a little “Tattoo” riding around in a golf cart! As a matter of fact, there was hardly even another living soul on this tropical island, as I recall! (Oh, maybe I was just not paying much attention to anybody but myself, and my own set of issues.)

.

.

“WHERE’S MY FANTASY!?”

.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:Ricardo_Montalban_Herve_Villechaize_Fantasy_Island_1977.JPG

It was obvious that the spirit had something else in mind. But what? I was hoping for something magical or even a mystical fantasy. After all, I knew I was dealing with spirits possessing powers beyond anything I’d ever imagined! And so, I knew these spirits were well capable of bringing about whatever was in-store for me!

.

As I said, there weren’t very many people at this resort, as I recall. At least not on the week days. It was almost like we had the place to ourselves! But it was a nice place. Not a five-star resort, mind you. It was a very nice little island though (aside from the restaurant help, needless to say! I’ll explain a little further down this page)

ALONE WITH THE SPIRIT

Fantasy Island

.

Not long after we arrived, Becky decided that some other family members needed to be here. So she went back to Guatemala City. I stayed on the island.

.

And so, with the spirit having such a gift of gab, and always willing to TALK MY EAR OFF, there was not a moment of boredom here, (nor of silence). And so I merely roamed the little island, sometimes sitting in a hammock, under the shade of a palm tree, and talked with the spirit. And mostly, I remember that he went over and over on this burning question, as to just who I was in a former life….Jesus….or Hitler. But I must say, most of the time on this so-called, “Fantasy Island”, he inundated me with the possibilities of me being Jesus (in a former life), and of all the glorious things awaiting me.

“YOU’RE HAVING MY BABY”…NOT!

(Title from the 1974 Paul Anka/Odia Coates hit, “You’re Having My Baby”)

.

But as I was sitting under a palm tree, he then began to present to me a big story of how, not only I, as Jesus, was reincarnated, but also other Bible people, namely Mother Mary. “Yes Chuck, Mother Mary has also been brought back many times over the centuries. As a matter of fact, remember when you talked your girlfriend into getting an abortion, she didn’t want to have?”

“WHAT A LOVELY WAY OF NOT SAYING HOW MUCH YOU LOVE ME”

(lyrics from the 1974 Paul Anka/Odia Coates hit, “You’re Having My Baby” with the word, “NOT” added)

.

The_Madonna_in_Sorrow wikipedia public domainThis inconvenient event happened a number of years earlier. I was an atheist. But I tried to convince myself that abortion wasn’t murder. In spite of that, the thought kept coming back to haunt me, that having an abortion would be preventing a life from coming into the world. So it was an undeniable fact that this abortion too, would be preventing a life: a human life from coming into the world!

.

So upon deciding to have one anyway, I tried and tried to shake this thought, “Outta My Head!” But I couldn’t! I just couldn’t shake it! This inescapable and inconvenient truth kept coming back again and again to torment me, even though I was pretty much an atheist, back in those years! I would be preventing a life from coming into the world. Dirty rotten MURDER!

.

In my heart of hearts, I knew it was!

The_Madonna_in_Sorrow wikipedia public domain

.

But on the day of the scheduled abortion, my girlfriend had a miscarriage (at least that’s what I was told at the time.) “That little girl you had, or should I say, almost had, was the soul of Mother Mary. You killed Mother Mary, Chuck! God was going to bring Mother Mary back into the world! And you killed her! You murdered Mother Mary!” The spirit was now telling me, that my insistence on her having an abortion put a stress on her, ultimately causing my girlfriend to have the miscarriage.

.

And so began the spirit to bombard me with guilt about this sad chapter in my past. “Do you know what that little girl’s name was going to be that you killed? I had never really The_Madonna_in_Sorrow wikipedia public domainthought about this. “You were going to name her “Heather”.

.

At this point I felt horrible! Not only was I responsible for that miscarriage, but that child had the soul of Mother Mary! And now the spirit was personalizing this by telling me the name that would’ve been given her: Heather!

(NOTE: As I look back on this episode, it seems that this horrible scenario presented to me by the spirit, was possibly a somewhat bizarre twist on that old anti-abortion argument…”What if Joseph had convinced the Virgin Mary into having an abortion of the Savior of the World?”)

DIS-FELLOWSHIP OF THE RING…

.

Anyway, I was wearing a ring my former girlfriend had once given me. It was a gold band with myThe_Madonna_in_Sorrow wikipedia public domain birth-stone.

.

The spirit began coming down on me hard, about how I treated her. “And she gave you that ring with all her love, you schmuck! And all you gave her was that tiny diamond ring! You no good piece of…” s#!@&t !”

.

All I could do was just to take this verbal whipping! And oh man, was I feeling really low! A real creep was I!

.

.

GHOST FROM PAST…

.

Then the spirit reminded me of an incident which I went through a few years earlier, when an old public-school friend from back in Salem came by to visit me while I was working at the restaurant. He just showed up one day at our family restaurant. (This incident was in about 1976 or so, 3 or 4 years prior to this Island experience.)

.

This old friend was dressed all in white: peasant shirt and pants. Clothes you might expect to see on a person living in the tropics. And now that I think of it, he did say he was currently living somewhere in the Hawaiian Islands.

mr roarke

.

RING OF FIRE… My old friend was saying some strange things! And at one point, he saw this very same ring now being discussed. He told me it was a very special ring, and that it glowed with an aura emanating from it. He asked if I would take it off. So I did, and gave it to him. He started dancing around the back banquet room (which was closed off to the public at that moment), holding up this ring above his head, saying weird things about the ring: saying that the ring glowed with some supernatural light! He talked about the ring as if it was of great importance. He then climbed on one of the banquet room chairs, and held the ring as high as he could. He was saying something about the ring being “very high” or something like that. Making such a big deal about a ring!

.

“Poor guy”, I thought, “He’s really flipped out!” My old school buddy and his white suit was totally “off his rocker”!

.

Now, years later, on this so-called Fantasy Island, the spirit was reminding me of this incident from the 70’s, with my old friend and this ring. “He was prophesying to you Chuck. I was controlling him. He was telling you how precious was the love given you by that girl!” I had little trouble accepting what the spirit was telling me. As a matter of fact, I still believe that my old friend in white was being led by spirits. His behavior was so bizarre that day, I can’t attribute it to anything else!

”THIS “GOLDEN” RING DOESN’T SHINE FOR ME ANYMORE”…

(play on lyrics from 1965 hit song by Gary Lewis & The Playboys, “This Diamond Ring”)

.

“I want you to take that ring and toss it into the ocean! Toss it, you no good p#$&%S%$T” I began to walk down to the black-sand beach which was only a hundred yards away, looking at this “special ring”, overwhelmed with guilt of how I rejected her love… “God really hates you because of how you treated her! And she only gave you love! Toss that ring you no good SOB!! TOSS IT!!”

.

And so I took this nice ring and tossed it as far as I could…into the ocean.

.

I really felt bad about the way I treated almost all my girlfriends. And I really never realized how heartless I could be at times.

CHANGED

.

Well, these flashbacks of the past ended, perhaps as quickly as they began.

.

And I must admit, because of this experience (and others), I became a changed person. In the future, I would try to be more honorable. Not that I was perfect, because I wasn’t.

.

Just better.

”LUNCH IS SERVED”http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:Belize20D_242.jpg

.

Now Becky arrived the next day with her family. So things became much more lively.

.

And this little island had several large swimming pools, and an open-air restaurant. Becky’s parents also came there. We all had lunch on this nice restaurant patio overlooking the ocean, just a few hundred feet away, or less.

“CHICKEN-SALAD SANDWICH, PLEASE…AND…UH…HOLD THE FLIES!”

http://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:Chicken_salad_sandwich_01.jpg

.

The waitress took our order. They ordered Spanish food. I, being from the good ol’ U.S. of A., ordered a chicken salad sandwich. The waitress soon brought our food. I opened my chicken salad sandwich to inspect it. Upon opening it, I saw a big fat oversized black fly still in mint condition, laying there in the chicken salad, hidden under the bread. I lodged my complaint in English, and it was interpreted to the waitress And after a little discussion, Becky interpreted to me that the waitress replied, “Just take it out”. I objected. And my objection was interpreted back to the waitress, saying that I wanted another sandwich (Which, of course, would be standard procedure back in the states!)

.

http://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:Chicken_salad_sandwich_01.jpgIn a few minutes she came back with “another sandwich”. I opened it, and thankfully, there was no large fly in it. But upon closer examination, I noticed an indent, very suspiciously in the exact same spot where the fly was located in the “other” sandwich! And after thinking about it for a few moments, I gave up and decided to make no further objections… and just shut up and eat the stupid sandwich!

.

Now why am I telling this little story? I don’t know. I just think it’s a funny story, even though it wasn’t so funny at the time.

.

But anyway, in a few days I would be eating something far worse than flies!

WHERE’S DE FANTASY, MR. ROARKE?

.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:Ricardo_Montalban_Herve_Villechaize_Fantasy_Island_1977.JPGAfter a few more days, Becky and I got back on that same ferry which brought us to this island. And in a few minutes we were back on the mainland.

.

But I guess it was kind of anticlimactic at that time, considering how I was led to believe this was going to be some sort of fantasy. But that’s what happened. I was somewhat disappointed that nothing semi-magical happened, like it often did on that TV show.

.

And there was no little fella named Tattoo running around the island either.

.

And no Roarke!

.

And no “pot of gold”!

.

And no promise of future glory!

“WHERE’S DE ISLAND!?”

.

And if that isn’t enough of a wash-out story, I just found out (as I’m writing this) another disappointing fact. Whttp://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:Ricardo_Montalban_Herve_Villechaize_Fantasy_Island_1977.JPGE WEREN’T EVEN ON AN ISLAND! We merely took a ferry across an OUTLET OF WATER ALONG THE COASTLINE BECAUSE IT HAD NO BRIDGE! We were actually still on the mainland of Guatemala.

.

What a disappointment!… NOT ONLY WAS THERE NO FANTASY… THERE WASN’T EVEN AN ISLAND!!! 

.

“WHERE’S DE RESORT!?!”

.

Now if that’s still not enough of a wash-out, I was also later informed that some time after we left there, a big Pacific storm http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:Ricardo_Montalban_Herve_Villechaize_Fantasy_Island_1977.JPGcame along and completely destroyed the entire resort!

.

Well, it serves them right for sticking that fly in my chicken salad sandwich! Not really! Just kidding! Just kidding! Actually, I would eagerly and enthusiastically go back there, flies or no flies! It was a really nice and inexpensive resort! (Well, of course, I did lose that beautiful and expensive gold ring. And oh yeah, I also went to sleep with a lit Marlboro in my hand on the last day, and caught my mattress on fire, which I paid for.)

”DON’T GO ‘ROUND TONIGHT…

.

IT’S BOUND TO TAKE YOUR LIFE!”

(Lyric from the 1969 Creedence Clearwater hit, “Bad Moon On The Rise”)

.

When we arrived back home at Becky’s parents, the weather became cloudy. During a dark night, there was a thunderstorm. I went up on the roof, because I learned by experience, that the spirit would answer questions using the lightning.

.

And up there. all alone on that roof, it seemed like I could see across all the houses and townhouses for blocks. The night looked like one of Van Gogh’s more dreary paintings! And the lightning put on a show for free!

http://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/commons/2/24/Cloud-to-ground_lightning2_-_NOAA.jpg

.

In the distance, the electric air and the kaboom of the lightning caused the dogs around the city to bark and howl, which only made things that much more eerie! And as I said, the spirit would answer simultaneous to the lightning flashing. So I would ask something concerning whether I was Hitler or Jesus, and other such things. I could perceive no time delay between the lightning flash and his answer in my mind. His answers would be either “yes”, or “no”. If he didn’t want to answer, he didn’t say anything.

.

I’m not sure how many nights this went on. Maybe just that one night. But I was bombarded with guilt over the miscarriage I caused, which resulted in the death of “Mother Mary’s” reincarnated soul. Of course by now, I didn’t know what to believe at this point. This spirit was as changeable as a fickle teenager.

”I SEE EARTHQUAKES AND LIGHTNING”…

(Lyric from the 1969 Creedence Clearwater hit, “Bad Moon On The Rise”)

.

One night, Becky and I were going to her Father’s church service. He had a very active church, which met seven nights a week, plus twice on Sunday! And as usual, there were many people gathered together on this weeknight service. Of course I couldn’t understand anything they said. It was all in Spanish. But there was lots of music, lots of singing, and an abundance of hand-clapping!

.

KA-BOO-O-O-M…

.

After much music and singing, it came time for Papa to begin preaching. During the service, the lightning began to flash outside. They had left the entry double-doors open, so I thought I would use this opportunity to ask the spirit more questions, and wait for the lightning and the spirit’s response. I figured that such a holy place as church might be the perfect place to get the answer I needed. And so I would look back at the open doors and ask a question, and wait for the lightning to flash. Now I can’t remember exactly what was happening right at the moment, as far as the church service. But I distinctly remember asking the question “Did I really kill the Mother Mary?” The lightning would flash, and a simultaneous answer would come, “Yes!”, or “No!”.

.

“SPEAKING WORDS OF WISDOM, ‘LET IT BE'”

(Lyrics from Paul McCartney song “Let It Be”)

.

And as I recall, I repeated this question several times. “Did I kill Mother Mary?…..Did I kill Mother Mary?” And about the second or third time…as soon as I asked the question, The spirit shouted, “NO-O-O-O-O-O!!”… and simultaneous to his answer, both the lightning and thunder cracked so loud, it was both blinding and deafening!

.

But at the very same moment as that answer, the lightning completely turned the neighborhood white with the loudest crack you might have ever heard, resulting in the lights going out in the church and throughout the entire neighborhood!

.

The lightning had caused the lights in the church and all through the neighborhood to go completely out! Now I was convinced that somehow the spirit had control over the lightning, in some way.

The_Madonna_in_Sorrow wikipedia public domain

.

Needless to say, the power outage brought the church service to a screeching halt! The noise of the service was quickly replaced by questioning voices throughout this darkened sanctuary. At least for 20 or 30 minutes, the service had ended until the power came back on throughout the neighborhood. Until it did come back on, everyone went outside the church in order to wait.

.

As I said, the spirit shouted “NO-O-O!!”, totally in-sync with the lightning flash/thunder and the The_Madonna_in_Sorrow wikipedia public domainneighborhood power-outage. This was a loud answer from Heaven, as far as I was concerned. “NO” came the answer I was hoping for! “NO” I didn’t kill Mother Mary, after all!

.

But then the spirit began to somewhat confuse the issue by saying, “Did God say “NO!”, or did He say, “KNOW!”???

.

Well, what could I do with such an ominous and confusing answer as this? And so, I decided to just, “Let it be”.

GOD NOT A MAGIC GENIE!

.

Nevertheless, that lightning storm put the “final lid down tight” on all this “Me killing Mother Mary” nonsense!

.

But also, this excursion to “Fantasy Island” put the final “cork in the bottle” on all this idea about God being some sort of, Ponzi-scheme”, in which you stroke some brass lamp, and “VOILA!”, a magic genie appears and offers you three wishes!

.

No, as we left, I was disappointed there was no mystical experience!

.

No earthly riches!

.

No promise of future glory!

.

Only the knowledge of what a miserable wretch and scoundrel I really had been through much of my “adult” life!

THE GOSPEL ACCORDING TO POLLYANNA

.

.

.

.

.

.

.

“For the time will come

when they will not endure sound doctrine;

but after their own lusts

shall they heap to themselves teachers,

having itching ears;

And they shall turn away

their ears from the truth,

and shall be turned unto fables.”

2nd Timothy 4:3, 4

.

.

.

.

.

.

.

In this above passage, the Lord is foretelling of a day when the churches will no longer tolerate the true Gospel of Jesus and Jesus alone.

.

And there are many today who believe that we have come to that very time in which the attendees of most, or perhaps, ALL churches demand an “itching ears” gospel.

MOON INTO BLOOD TRILOGY: 3rd FACE

https://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:Full_Moon_(39978027392).jpg.

This next little section below is an excerpt from “Moon Into Blood Trilogy, Part 3, ‘The Sadducee Seeker'”.

.

This article describes this 3rd Moon-face, who is steeped in unbelief and as a result, seeks after the things of the world. Yes, this rabbit, or rodent-like earth-hugger thinks that worldly Mammon will somehow supply the lack caused by God’s supposed inability to provide for all our spiritual, physical and social needs.

.

So let’s listen for a moment as this Sadducee-Seeker is being described…

.

.

.

.

“PROPHESY DECEITS”

.

“That this is a rebellious people, lying children, children that will not hear the 3rd Face in Moon-scavenger-www.signsofheaven.orglaw of the LORD: Which say to the seers, See not; and to the prophets, Prophesy not unto us right things, speak unto us smooth things, prophesy deceits:” Isaiah 30:9, 10

.


This above passage describes this Moon-Beast to a tee! “Smooth things” are what his “itching ears” long to hear! And because this furry and adorable little forest creature (the Sadducee-Seeker) loves to have his ears tickled, the Devil has conveniently provided him with a congregation which accommodates his desires.

.

.

.

.

.

“HAVING ITCHING EARS”

.

3rd Face in Moon-scavenger-www.signsofheaven.org

Again, the Apostle, Paul, spoke of this condition, in the following words… “For the time will come when they will not endure sound doctrine; but after their own lusts shall they heap to themselves teachers, having itching ears; And they shall turn away their ears from the truth, and shall be turned unto fables.” 2nd Timothy 4:3, 4

.

Yes, this adorable little creature of the field, loves his pastor, who, by the way, is very much like him. He loves to hear a light and playful sermon, filled with little quips and jests and world-https://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:Cat_scratching.jpgfriendly anecdotes: a gospel which tells of a god who mostly smiles down upon this, “pretty nice world, after all!

.

And this Moon-Beast loves to hear sermons about “grace-alone”, because he is often told that grace-alone excuses him from dying-to-self. And to this poor Sadducee, that’s very good news!

.

After all, the last thing this Moon-Beast wants is to give up his life of foraging in the field. Yes, this friendly little Seeker wants a gospel which allows him to continue seeking after the cares & pleasures of this world, but with the promise of Heaven too!

THE GOSPEL ACCORDING TO POLLYANNA

.https://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:Pollyann_statue_(18902222832).jpg

Oh yes, this Sadducee-Seeker’s church is under a gospel similar to that delightful movie character, Pollyanna!

.

You see, this congregation too, like Pollyanna, has found3rd Face in Moon-scavenger-www.signsofheaven.org those 800 totally non-offensive Bible verses! That’s right, this charismatic and precocious little girl in that movie had developed a gospel of her own making (which eliminated the thousands of harder verses found in the Bible).

.

Yes, Pollyanna’s gospel was in stark contrast to the fire-and-brimstone gospel which her harsh and judgmental aunt liked to hear.

HOLLYWOOD STRIKES FEAR IN HEARTS OF PREACHERS

.

3rd Face in Moon-scavenger-www.signsofheaven.org

And such movies as Pollyanna (and there are many similar ones) have been a strong deterrent over the past years, against any Hell-Fire preaching in today’s pulpits.

.

And this itching-ears gospel according to Pollyanna, is mostly what this Moon-Beast’s pastor preaches, either by sermon, or by personal example.

.

Yes, his words are “smoother than butter” (Psalms 55;21), and the example of his own life speaks of “smooth things”; of fun and frolic, of amusements and hobbies. Of dreams about ambitious careers and promises of better and more affluent tomorrows. Of long life in this world, and retirement packages, affording a life-of-leisure in some little haven here on earth!

ETERNAL TORMENT

.

3rd Face in Moon-scavenger-www.signsofheaven.org

Now in defense of many of today’s pastors, it must be noted that there has been a lot of unnecessary and annoying shouting from many pulpits, in the past decades. And there have likewise been unbiblical doctrines over the centuries past, such as that heretical doctrine of carnal men, which teaches that all sinners will continually roast in literal flames of fire for all the ions of time.

.

But just because there has been such unbiblical preaching, based on misunderstanding of certain parables, doesn’t necessitate getting rid of all preaching on sin and righteousness. For more on this subject, you may wish to read… “Planet of Rest: Doctrine of Eternal Torment”

THE ALL-SUFFICIENCY OF GOD

.

“But m3rd Face in Moon-scavenger-www.signsofheaven.orgy God shall supply all your need according to His riches in glory by Christ Jesus.” Philippians 4:19

.

If only this Moon-Beast Sadducee-Seeker would begin to seek God with all his heart, he would be surprised to discover that the life of Jesus is a life of peace and contentment that surpasses all human logic and understanding. With such a knowledge, this Sadducee-Seeker would realize that he doesn’t need a world-loving gospel. Yes, all this Moon-Beast really needs is Jesus. And even though Psalm 23 is his very favorite psalm, he doesn’t even believe its very first words… “The Lord is my shepherd, I shall not want (that is, “I lack nothing”)” Psalm 23:1

.

.

.

.

.

PEOPLE NOT THE PROBLEM!

.http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:Martin,_John_-_Satan_presiding_at_the_Infernal_Council_-_1824.JPG

The real enemy here is not, “flesh and blood”. No, but our true battle is “against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places.” Ephesians 6:12

.

Yes, Satan is the master chess-player, and has hedged us in on every side, by his lies and deceptions in attempt to corrupt the current condition of the church-world to the point that there is no more Salvation there.

“COME OUT OF HER MY PEOPLE”

.

3rd Face in Moon-scavenger-www.signsofheaven.org

But the Good News is that God is calling His people to come out of the Babylonish confusion which is the current condition of today’s churches…http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:Tissot_The_Flight_of_the_Prisoners.jpg

.

Listen… “And I heard another voice from heaven, saying, 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

.

God has indeed furnished a table in the wilderness. (Psalm 78:19) And for those who are escaped from spiritual Babylon will be delighted to discover that, “bread shall be given him, his waters shall be sure!” Isaiah 33:16.

.

Yes, our daily heavenly manna will be provided, and the waters of grace will freely flow in the spiritual mountains where we must flee!

FLOWER OF THE FIELD IN HEAVEN

.

This is perhaps one of the most amazing constellations that God has created. It truly looks like a flower, and appears to be blowing in the direction of westward. But as autumn draws near, this constellation appears to bow itself down, just like the flowers of Earth bow down, at the summer’s end.

Two Turtledoves-Flower of the Field- Cross/Scepter Constellations

.

And these are not merely obscure stars. These are among the biggest and brightest stars in the night heavens.

.

The Two Turtle-Doves Constellation is also known as Sagittarius .

.

The Flower of the Field is also known as Scorpio .

.

But there is another obvious aspect to this constellation group. Notice that the birds are flying in the same direction as the flower is bending; it is as if the east wind is blowing these heavenly messengers. “The wind blows where it desires, and you hear the sound thereof, but canst not tell whence it comes, and where it goes: so is every one that is born of the Spirit. John 3:8. So here is another incredible Bible concept, written in the heavens! And God has spoken of these signs! Listen… “For ever, O LORD, Thy word is settled in (the) heaven(s).” Psalm 119:89

.

THE ZODIAC CONSTELLATION NAMES

By the way, it is not the purpose of www.theheavensdeclare.net to give any validity to the Zodiac or any pagan deities. But the common names of many constellations must be given, solely for the purpose of locating them on star-charts.

.

.

.

.

.

WHY IS THIS FLOWER POINTING UPWARD?

flower of the field constellation (fixed)

.

To the right is a star-chart from Wikipedia. The editor of this site has sketched in the Flower of the Field Constellation on this constellation commonly referred to as the Scorpio Constellation (plus a few other close-by bright stars). Do you see the long blade of grass growing from the base of the Flower of the Field? This is made of the two highest stars of the Lupus Constellation, and the two lowest stars of the Libra Constellation. As this sketch shows, the flower appears to be pointing to Arcturus and the Revelation 12 Woman (shown in sketch below). Arcturus represents Jesus, as He leads His sons (and daughters) on a spiritual journey up a heavenward pathway, as is written… “Canst you bring forth Mazzaroth in his season? or can you guide Arcturus with his sons?” Job 38:32.

“Seek the LORD and His strength,

seek His face continually.

Remember His marvellous works

that He hath done, His wonders…”

Job 16:11, 12

.

Well, you have to admit it!

.

“Admit what?”, you might ask.

.

You have to admit that the so-called “Big Bang” explosion went off extremely well, especially being the product of a chaotic accident in a godless…uh…whatever!

.

After all, just look how it turned out! Extremely well!

.

For example, the resulting universe is doing pretty well, wouldn’t you agree?

.

 

.

For example, here we are in our solar system, which makes a wonderful and dependable time-piece! Yes, each orb in our solar-system stays pretty consistent in their rotation around the sun.

.

And speaking of luck, how about all those atoms?! Yes, this universe is made up of a whole lot of tiny electromagnets, which somehow forms everything…including we humans! Yes, pretty amazing when you think that somehow this entire universe consists of these powerful particles of energy, each holding together.

.

And isn’t it so lucky that we have our beautiful blue sky! After all, it could’ve been some horrible color. And how about those clouds?! Aren’t they great as they bring in the much-needed rain to water the earth and trees, giving drink to man and beast and all living things?

.

And how about those myriad laws which govern the universe and everything within?! Yes, it could’ve been a universe of complete chaos! Just ask any scientist why science is so enjoyable to study. He’ll tell you that science is such a thrill because of all the consistency of the laws of nature.

.

And just ask any poet about the wisdom found in nature! That poet will confess that nature is a wonderful and poetic teacher of truth!

.

And how about those babies?! Yes, isn’t it extremely lucky that babies are so cute? And even animal babies are so joyful and fun to watch!

.

And what about families?! Isn’t it so wonderful to have families who love one-another?!

.

And what about a smile?! Isn’t it so wonderful when people smile a genuine smile of friendship and/or compassion? After all, the big bang could have made us like those hideous space aliens we see in the movies!

.

And what about music?! We are extremely lucky to be able to enjoy music! And art! And poetry! And dramas!

.

And isn’t it so lucky that lightning-striking-pond-scum produced so many interesting life-forms, and so many beautiful plants and animals?! Isn’t it so lucky that nature has so many beautiful, majestic things to enjoy?!

.

And isn’t it so lucky that we humans are also the result of lightning-striking-pond-scum. And isn’t it so lucky that humans became the crowning act of the Big Bang, in that mankind has the mental capacity to explore and ponder all these wonderful accidents of nature?!

.

Well, this article could go on and on about all the so-called “lucky things” which supposedly were produced by some mindless cosmic explosion…chaos into order and design.

.

But the true reason why things turned the way they did is because they are the product of an infinite omnipotent super-mind…God! And this eternal Spirit-Being has placed mankind in a universe with countless evidences of His existence and love. And though this little planet also tells of evil, and is marred because of the consequences of sin, the goodness and love of God still shines through.

TODAY’S FEATURED HEAVENLY SIGN

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.

.http://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:Um_moinho_dominando_a_ba%C3%ADa_%C3%A0_luz_lunar.jpg

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

.This is a drawing of a winter-time total lunar eclipse, first published in Bilder- (Picture Atlas of the Stemenwelt) in 1888

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”)

“BABY” DERIVED FROM “BABY-LON”

.

The name, “baby” is said to have been derived from the name, “Babel”. In other words, just as those Babylonians in the days of the building of the Tower of Babel, became confused in their language, so too, babies all speak an unintelligible language!

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

Listen… “And the LORD said, Behold, the people is one,

and they have all one language; and this they begin to do:

and now nothing will be restrained from them,

which they have imagined to do…

let us go down, and there confound their language,

that they may not understand one another’s speech.”

Genesis 11:6, 7

.

Yes, just as no Babylonian could understand one another, once God confused their speech, so also, nobody can understand a baby’s language! It just sounds like a whole lot of babbling!

.

.

.

.

WE’RE NOT BABIES! (or are we?)

.

Now of course, we grown-ups can laugh and enjoy the babbling of a baby!

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

It’s cute!

.

And thankfully, we are far above the baby-like behavior of those tiny tots!

.

Yes, we have matured over the years!

.

We are now very sophisticated, through the decades of our physical development and our wisdom gained through time and experience!

.

Right?

.

Well, perhaps we should look a little closer at babies, and see if we have truly risen above mere babyhood, or possibly are merely kidding ourselves!

.

Well, let’s move up a few years and examine the behavior of older kids, say 5-to-10-year-olds.

.

Are you old enough to remember that come-back-line often used after being called some derogatory name: “I know you are, but what am I?!”

.

Yes, this childhood retort was adequate enough back in the 1950’s (but probably is not so much in today’s increasingly violent-prone society).

.

NAME-CALLING STILL IN VOGUE

.

And yet, while “I-know-you-are-but-what-am-I?” may have become outdated, name-calling is still very much in vogue!

.

As a matter of fact, just look at the world of politics, for example. Anyone who follows the daily political soap-opera is well aware of the name-calling which flies back-and-forth between opposing political parties!

Such derogatory tags as “They’re all a bunch of Nazis!”,

or “He’s a modern-day Hitler!”,

or “You’re a real ‘such-and-such-phobe’!”

.

Well, these are just a few of the most common derogatory names (along with some really choice four-letter-smears!)

.

.

.

.

.

.

YELLOW JOURNALISM ALIVE & WELL!

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

Well, just like children in a sandbox, is today’s political arena!

.

One political party attempts to smear the opposition, using the worst-of-the-worst smear-tactics.

.

And of course, major-media-yellow-journalists all jump on board, and echo the daily smears, all in hopes of prejudicing the listening public against the media’s political foes.

.

.

.

.

.

.

SATAN, A TIRELESS ENEMY

.

But how can we blame them? After all, the “god of this world” has worked 24/7/365 to create a society which encourages such immaturity! And so much of television, radio, and Internet caters to that immaturity.

.

Yes, a great deal of television, Internet, and the recording industry attempts to appeal to the younger generation on a very low level which often hinders them from growing up properly (this web-editor also being also a victim, once-upon-a-time).

.

.

.

.

.

“but whosoever shall say, ‘Thou fool’, shall be in danger of hellfire!”

Matthew 5:22

.

Now, just what does God have to say about all this name-calling? Listen to the very words of Jesus…

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

.

“But I (Jesus) say unto you,

That whosoever is angry with his brother without a cause

shall be in danger of the judgment:

and whosoever shall say to his brother, ‘Raca’ (Chaldee for “worthless” or “empty”)

shall be in danger of the council:

but whosoever shall say, ‘Thou fool’,

shall be in danger of hellfire!”

Matthew 5:22

“THE PRINCE OF THE POWER OF THE AIR(WAVES)”

Ephesians 2:2

.

https://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/Category:Microphone_icons#/media/File:Icon_announcer.svgIt is not uncommon to hear so-called Christian Internet-commentators using some derogatory tag against people they don’t like. And sadly, most of us Christians have been guilty of the same!

.

But those of us who have committed this sin, need to wake up and beg and plead for mercy, grace, and deliverance from our heavenly Father!

.

On the other hand, the world will, no doubt, continue to engage in such childish behavior.

.

After all, that’s pretty much what sin is…childishness. But woe to all of us who should know better!

The Good News is that today is still the day of salvation! And as Christians, we can go into our quiet place of prayer, and ask for that mercy, grace, and deliverance from all such Spirit-quenching sins!

.

And though “weeping may endure for a night”, yet when we finally do get the victory over this pernicious sin, we can be assured that…“joy cometh in the morning!” Psalm 30:5

END-TIME EXODUShttp://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:Tissot_The_Flight_of_the_Prisoners.jpg

.

Oh no, we cannot come completely out of society. But we can come out as far as possible from its unchristlike ways.

“there shall come a Star out of Jacob”…

Numbers 24:17

.

“Now when Jesus was born in Bethlehem of Judaea in the days of Herod the king, behold, there came wise men from the east to Jerusalem, Saying, Where is he that is born King of the Jews? for we have seen his star in the east, and are come to worship him.” Matthew 2:1, 2

Wise Men (Magi) From East Follow Star To Bethlehem-www.signsofheaven.org-public domain release

.

There exists a lot of intrigue regarding just what star did the Magi from the East follow, which led them to the First Advent of our Savior.

.

The Bible speaks of Arcturus as a possibility…“canst thou guide Arcturus with his sons?” Job 38:33.There’s nothing that is impossible for God! Arcturus may very well have been that star. 

.

FULFILLMENT OF WISE-MEN OF OLD

.

But there is a much greater question that confronts Mankind today. Because, just as a single star guided those wise men to the coming Savior, so also, God is just now giving us many stars, to guide us safely to the Second Coming of our Lord and Savior! And so these starry signs seem to be the fulfillment of those wise men following the star, 2,000 years ago!

.

.

.

.

.

GUIDE US TO HEAVEN’S GATE…

.

And Arcturus is that brilliant star (3rd brightest in our heavens) which leads these Gospel constellations, Summer, Fall, and Winter Constellations, to present a picture story, a heavenly allegory of sorts; these constellations, which together, tell of the incredible love of God. And Arcturus, our Host Star, will lead to an understanding of God’s Word, which will, in turn, guide God’s people up a narrow pathway; onward and upward through Heaven’s Gate itself, and ultimately into the very heavenly City of God.

.

Oh don’t doubt for a moment that God cannot or will not do this! For with God, all things are possible! Listen… “Jesus said unto him, If thou canst believe, all things are possible to him that believeth.” Mark 9:23

.

And Signs Of Heaven Website will direct the Reader to God’s Word in such a way as to bring out certain Bible truths not currently recognized or emphasized in most of the current Christian theological circles.

The number ‘two’ seems to be the number that speaks of “reflection”. (Just like this giant globe photo to the right.)

.423px-Mirror_globe by Arpingstone for Wikipedia Public Domain

As this mirror globe reflects the images of the people around it, so too, we each reflect an image to the world around us (whether we like it or not).

.

When you look in the mirror, there becomes two images; 1. You, and 2. The reflection of you… in the mirror…

REFLECTING 

http://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:Jul_9,_2009_-_Full_moon_over_96th_St.jpg

.

“Can two walk together except they be in agreement?” Amos 3:3.

.

To “be in agreement”, as this verse says, with another person, seems to speak of one person reflecting the opinions of another.

.

They are an “image”, one of another, as far as their viewpoints.

.

As the Moon reflects the light of the Sun, the Moon shines just like the Sun (not as brightly though).

.

And as Mercury (the second solar-system body) reflects the light of the Sun, it too becomes a light as well.

WE ARE A MIRROR…

.423px-Mirror_globe by Arpingstone for Wikipedia Public Domain

But as this mirror globe in the photo presents an image of these people, we humans reflect an image to the world.

.

And our image is a product of our life-experiences; we are a ‘mirror’ of the people and things which have influenced us.

INFLUENCE OF ASSOCIATIONS

.

https://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:Mercury_in_color_-_Prockter07_centered.jpgLITTLE COMPANION… Mercury is the Sun’s ‘little companion’, so to Solar_sys2 NASA public domainspeak. Oh yes, it’s a “little” companion. (Mercury is just a little larger than Pluto; Pluto being the 10th and smallest member of the major planets. There is a current debate about Pluto, however). But small as Mercury is, it’s the closest planet to the Sun. This presents an object lesson. As Mercury is a constant companion to the Sun, so we need to be a constant companion to the “Sun of Righteousness”. Malachi 4:1

.

.

.

.

.

.

.

COMPANIONSHIP BRINGS CHANGE…

.

But Scripture makes it clear that we can’t “hang around” with someone without being influenced by that person; especially if we admire that person whom we’re associating with.

.

The Bible says that “companionship” says a lot about who we are. Have you ever heard the expression, “Tell me who your friends are, and I’ll tell you who you are”?

.

The Bible asks the very same question, but in a somewhat different way… “Can two walk together, except they are in agreement?” Amos 3:3.

.

God asks us this question. And the obvious answer is, “yes”. They must be in agreement. 

.

But this next verse seems to be an answer to the previous verse. Just listen… “…we…beholding…the Lord…are changed into the same image.” 2nd Corinthians 3:18.

.

This verse confirms that associating with Jesus has a positive influence on a person. Thus, by walking with Jesus, we become in agreement with Jesus.

.

.

.

.

.

EVIL ASSOCIATIONS AFFECT US

.

But this principal of “who we walk with”, also works in the negative sense… “Be not deceived: evil communications corrupt good manners.” 1st Corinthians 15:33.

.

By associating with bad influences, we imperceptibly begin to take on those evil attributes.

.

“Be not deceived”, this last verse states. Every time Scripture issues this warning, we need to realize that Satan will try to deceive us on that very point.

.

So don’t let anyone deceive you into thinking that you can associate with evil behavior and not be affected by that behavior.

.

.

.

.

.

.

HEAVENLY ROLE-MODELS or HELLISH ROLE MODELS?

.

As most everyone in the Christian community understands, the Bible uses, not only Jesus, but mere mortals, such as Paul, to be role-models for Christians to admire and emulate.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:Poster_-_Gone_With_the_Wind_01.jpg.

But Lucifer, now called Satan, fully understands this, and has given us his own role-models for us to conform to. And now, with the advent of television, radio, the printed page, and high-tech devices, like never before this Master-Destroyer has perfected his mind-control machinery in which to conform the world into his own selfish image!

.http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:Super_Bowl_XLIII_-_Thunderbirds_Flyover_-_Feb_1_2009.jpg

And so, the many ‘superstars’ seen and adored by the lost multitudes on a daily basis, become firmly etched upon the tables of the human hearts of all those adoring fans of these so-called, ‘ministers of righteousness’, which are seen and heard all over today’s mass-media!

.

And as a result, they eventually begin to emulate them in their own personal daily lives!

AM I THE MIRROR IMAGE OF JESUS?…

.

https://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:Mercury_in_color_-_Prockter07_centered.jpg“(Jesus) Who being the brightness of His (the Majesty on high’s) glory, and the express image of His person…” Hebrews 1:3http://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:Emil_Orlik_Junge_Frau_im_gr%C3%BCnen_Kleid.jpg

.

And speaking of images, the above verse states that Jesus, being the eternal Son of God, was the express image of the Godhead.

.

But these things concerning the Godhead are far higher than any human can understand. And yet, one thing is for sure: Jesus was, http://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:MabelNormand_with_round_mirror.jpgand is in constant communion with the Godhead, of whom He is an integral part. Jesus and the Father and the Holy Spirit are One.

.

Now this concept brings home to each and every Believer the very same concept: “whose companion am I? Who do I admire? Who do I look up to?”

.

Here is the first object lesson.

.

Just as Jesus is at oneness with the Godhead, so must we be at oneness with Jesus, and He with us!

STICKING CLOSE TO JESUS

.

And back to Planet Mercury, and the Sun: just like the Sun is closest to planet Mercury, so too, the Christian must stichttps://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:Christianity-Jesus_Christ_Died_for_your_Sin.jpgk close to Jesus, the ‘Sun of Righteousness’.

.

And so how does this relate to the Second Commandment?

.

Just listen to this next passage… “But we all, with open face beholding as in a glass (mirror) the glory of the Lord, are changed into the same image from glory to glory, even as by the Spirit of the Lord.” 2nd Corinthians 3:18

.

Like the 2nd Commandment, this incredible verse likewise speaks of image-making. But this verse speaks of the wonderful image that God has in mind for His children to attain to: to be changed into the image of Jesus! Isn’t this what it’s all about?

THE SECRET TO SUCCESS!

.

http://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:Tissot_Moses_and_the_Ten_Commandments.jpgAnd this most amazing passage about being changed into Jesus’ image, lays it all out as to the secret to success, in being a “Christ-like” Christian.

.

Listen to this passage once again… “But we all, with open face beholding as in a glass (mirror) the glory of the Lord, are changed into the same image from glory to glory, even as by the Spirit of the Lord.” 2nd Corinthians 3:18. This is one of the most powerful verses in all of Scripture!

MERCURY & THE 2nd COMMANDMENT 

.

https://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:Mercury_in_color_-_Prockter07_centered.jpg#2 HEAVENLY SPHERE & #2 COMMANDMENT… As discussed elsewhere in this website, the Sun seems to correspond to the First Commandment. Likewise, Mercury, which is the second heavenly sphere in our solar system, seems to correspond very nicely to the Second Commandment. Both the second heavenly sphere (Mercury) and the Second Commandment (no images) are closest to the ‘Sun’. That is to say, just as planet Mercury is the closest planet to the Sun, so is the Second Commandment right next to the First Commandment (God compares himself to the Sun many times in Scripture). Jesus says to us today…

https://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:Blue_moon_of_31.08.2012.jpgThis above passage from Mark 7 was spoken by Jesus to the Pharisees and scribes. And in this list of evils which proceed from the hearts of men, Jesus mentions “an evil eye”.

.

And God has inscribed this sign upon the face of the Moon! Yes, this 2nd face is that of a wolf-like character with an upraised eyebrow as he appears to be looking down upon this world in judgment!

.

You see, this wolf-like character represents proud Pharisees, because the Pharisees were the “Moral Majority” of their day. They were very outwardly correct and very judgmental of all those whom they thought to be less moral than they, themselves!

THE PHARISEE WITHIN

And this beast lives within each of us.

.

Oh well, he may not manifest himself so much. But he is the iconic symbol of foolish human pride! And each and every human being has pride dwelling within. In some, pride is very apparent and noticeable! In others, it lies just beneath the surface. But it’s there, working together with the other two sins, the lusts of the flesh, and the lusts of the eyes (covetousness).

PRIDE OFTEN PRAISED!

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

https://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:Blue_moon_of_31.08.2012.jpg

Now pride is considered in the Bible to be one of the higher sins of the mind, whereas the lusts of the flesh, the lower passions of the flesh.

.

And while the lusts of the flesh are often scorned even by the world, the Pride of Life is more likely to be seen as a virtue.

.

And yet, pride is especially reprehensible to God. God hates selfish human pride!

.

Perhaps God created the beautiful and regal peacocks to give us a symbol of pride, as if all eyes are on us.

.

Yes, we humans, nevertheless, often love to be the center of attention and the object of admiration!

Listen… “These six things doth the LORD hate: yea, seven are an abomination unto him: A proud look, a lying tongue, and hands that shed innocent blood, An heart that deviseth wicked imaginations, feet that be swift in running to mischief, A false witness that speaketh lies, and he that soweth discord among brethren.” Proverbs 6:16-19

.

Here we have a short list of human qualities which the Lord hates! And “a proud look” holds the #1 spot on that list!

LUCIFER’S PRIDE

.

https://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:Blue_moon_of_31.08.2012.jpg

You see, Pride was the original sin, manifesting itself back in the days of the great rebellion in Heaven, when Lucifer’s heart was lifted up…

.

Listen… “How art thou fallen from heaven, O Lucifer, son of the morning! how art thou cut down to the ground, which didst weaken the nations! For thou hast said in thine heart, I will ascend into heaven, I will exalt my throne above the stars of God: I will sit also upon the mount of the congregation, in the sides of the north: I will ascend above the heights of the clouds; I will be like the most High.” Isaiah 14:12

.

Here we see that Lucifer wanted to exalt his heavenly throne above the stars of Heaven! He was ambitious! He wanted it all!

PHARISEES LOVED SELF-EXALTATION

The Pharisee and The Publican

.

https://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:Blue_moon_of_31.08.2012.jpg

And so too, the Pharisees back in Jesus’ earthly ministry, loved to exalt themselves above other humans!

.

Thus, they strove to become more moral and correct. They sought for excellence in outward appearance. They loved the exaltation of social status which earthly riches afforded! They coveted their extravagant and showy homes and gardens, and cattle, and lands.

Now contrast this with meek and humble Jesus. Here came the King of Heaven, riding on a lowly donkey.

.

Laying aside His heavenly crown, so that He might come and bring back His lost sheep. Living a life of poverty, he condescended to those of low esteem. And instead of receiving praise and honor, He was spit upon and rejected by those of us who followed after Lucifer’s rebellion!

And so, the Good News here is that we can begin to purify our hearts from all foolish pride and its accompanying sins: anger, judging, self-promotion…

.

Yes, God has given us the greatest of all commissions… “but we know that, when He shall appear, we shall be like Him; for we shall see him as He is. And every man that hath this hope in Him purifies himself, even as He is pure. ” 1st John 3:2, 3

MOON INTO BLOOD TRILOGY…

.

There are three faces in the Moon, etched by God Himself. These faces present, not only the condition of God’s house, but also, the condition of the Human Heart.

.

The first face is that of a man. The other two faces are those of a scavenger and also a predator. The first face represents the True Worshipers. The other two represent the two classes of Christians that existed in Jesus’ day: the Pharisees, and the Sadducees. The Pharisees were the Proud Scorners. The Sadducees were locked in by unbelief. They didn’t believe much of the Bible. While the second face representing the Pharisees, as they professed belief in the Bible, loved the sins of pride, the 3rd face (Sadducees) continually sought after the things of the world.

.

Yes, these faithless ones (represented by this 3rd face), didn’t believe that being Christ-like could bring the joy necessary to be content. So this 3rd face is a Seeker, so to speak. Just as the little furry critters are constantly seeking after food, so too, many Christians are constantly seeking after, and nibbling of the things of the world. Now, it’s not to say that Christians do not enjoy the things of the world. But Christians are not to make the things of the world of much importance. Their chief desire is to seek the things of Heaven.

3rd Face in Moon-scavenger-www.signsofheaven.org

.

Do you get the point of these two beasts of the Earth? And while the Moon does not deal directly with all aspects of the Revelation 13 Antichrist Beast (7 heads, 10 horns, etc.). Nevertheless, the Moon exposes the Beast Within: the Beast within the human heart.

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 joke and mock “the silly and absurd notionthat Satan is a very active and powerful force controlling the peoples of this world, by laughingly saying…“The Devil made me do it! 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, antichrist spirit is more than anybody is willing to accept, much less even admit!

.

There has been a great mystery as to the cause of the “Dancing Plague of 1518 in Strasbourg France”.

“The outbreak began in July 1518 when a woman called Frau Troffea began to dance fervently and uncontrollably in a street in Strasbourg. Troffea kept up the constant dancing for a week. Soon, three dozen others joined in. By August, the “dancing plague” had claimed 400 victims. Dancers were beginning to collapse. It is said some even died from a stroke or heart attack. No one knew what caused this reaction, which meant no one understood how to remedy it. By early September, the outbreak began to subside, when the dancers were sent to a mountain shrine to pray for absolution.”

.

.

.

.

.

Now, according to “experts”, the cause of this plague are unknown to this very day, although theories range from “Mass Psychosis” to “Demonic possession”.

.

And this same Wikipedia article notes that similar phenomena occurred at various times and places in Medieval Europe.

.

PENTACOSTAL SIGNS & WONDERS

.

Nevertheless, such phenomena has continued on, even unto this very day. One such event occurred, taking on a religious form, which has been tagged as the Azusa Street Revival…

.

Listen to Wikipedia…Another local paper reporter in September 1906 described the happenings with the following words: “…they cry and make howling noises all day and into the night. They run, jump, shake all over, shout to the top of their voice, spin around in circles, fall out on the sawdust blanketed floor jerking, kicking and rolling all over it. Some of them pass out and do not move for hours as though they were dead. These people appear to be mad, mentally deranged or under a spell. They claim to be filled with the spirit…” 

.

This event has been credited as the beginning of the modern-day Pentacostal Movement. And still to this day, there are churches and evangelists which conduct large gatherings in which are Non-Biblical phenomena such as, “Falling Backwards”, “speaking in unintelligible babbling”, “Dancing in the Spirit”, “Drunkenness in the Spirit”, “Laughing in the Spirit”, etc….

.

But even going outside of the churches, there are many unexplained phenomena occurring in the secular world.

.

One such unexplained occurrence is growing phenomenon of “Gender Confusion” in which millions of people are no longer happy with their God-ordained gender. Thus we are seeing not only the public being overtaken by this unnatural compulsion, but the government and medical community has joined in this cultish phenomenon, even surgically removing sex-organs of people of most all ages, to somehow quell the perverted desire to become the opposite gender.

.

Nevertheless, credit for all these various forms of so-called “Mass Psychosis” must be given to the dark forces which rule over this crazy world.

.

Yes, the Bible reveals that Lucifer was long ago given rulership of this antichrist world-system! Listen…”2Co 4:3  But if our gospel be hid, it is hid to them that are lost: 
2Co 4:4  In whom the god of this world hath blinded the minds of them which believe not, lest the light of the glorious gospel of Christ, who is the image of God, should shine unto them.”

.

Even though there has been strange and demonic phenomena through history, today’s high-tech world has become the end-times engine for a grand perview of Satanic activity. Yes, now the entire world is increasingly able to watch through the high-tech p[ortals and see the workings of that “Prince of the Power of the Air”, as he sweeps through the nations with societal tsunamis, bringing judgment on the nations, overwhelming us with the increasingly horrific depths of sinful madness! Yes, just as giant waves of the ocean come, one-by-one, so are we flooded with one form of madness after another, whether in the music world, or sports, or government, television, Internet. 

.

GOOD NEWS FROM A FAR COUNTRY!”

.

If there is any Good News in all of this world’s insanity, it is offer of Salvation in which we may aquire “Peace that surpasses all understanding!”

.

Yes, by turning our eyes upon the Savior of the world, we may obtain “perfect peace” and divine rest” in a world which rages as the troubled sea which cannot rest.

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:Brooklyn_Museum_-_Study_for_The_Cross_and_the_World......_-_Thomas_Cole.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).

Daily Devotional, Year 4 – November 21 (Taking Back This Nation for God! Part 24: “Misguided Mercy on the Border”)

By admin On February 14th, 2024

Daily Devotional, Year 4 – November 21

.

.

.

.

.

Taking Back This Nation for God!

.

Part 24:

“Misguided Mercy on the Border”

To read Part 1, click here…“March 28th (Taking Back This Nation For God)

.

.

.

. 

“The wicked shall be turned into Hell,

and all the nations that forget God.”

Psalm 9:17 

.

.

.

“…but the tender mercies of the wicked are cruel”

Proverbs 12:10.

.

.

.

.

.

.

THE ROOT OF THE CAUSE

.

Not too long ago, the Leaders of the land were pressured to address the border crisis in which millions of foreigners were flooding into the United States.

.

And because the calls for help became so loud and critical, the embarrassed leaders announced the creation of “The Border Czar” who promised to “get to the root cause of the migrant invasion”.

.

Well, as media commentators predicted, that was the last time the “Border Czar” addressed the crisis. And the problem got much worse.

.

.

.

.

.

.

.

Many who favored this invasion claimed that Jesus would be in favor of allowing poor people to come into a wealthy nation.

.

But actually, God warned His people to jealously guard their borders… “‘But if you do not drive out the inhabitants of the land, those you allow to remain will become barbs in your eyes and thorns in your sides. They will give you trouble in the land where you will live.” Numbers 33:55

.

The Lord only allowed individual foreigners to come into The Promised Land on the condition that he renounced his former gods and instead, embraced the religion of Yahweh, the God of the Hebrews.

.

.

.

.

.

.

But today, millions of citizens of the western nations are perplexed, even horrified by the moral/political/financial breakdown of society!

.

“Why have we become so lawless?” is the question of the day.

.

 

.

.

.

.

“But they that will be rich fall into temptation and a snare, and into many foolish and hurtful lusts, which drown men in destruction and perdition.”

1st Timothy 6:9

.

Yes, God in His mercy gave this nation His manifold blessings, knowing how His people suffered so greatly through the centuries of the Dark Ages of Europe! And He allowed the the Reformation nations to grow and thrive.

.

But nations rise and nations fall. And though God greatly blessed The Reformation Nations their material abundance eventually became a curse.

.

.

.

.

.

.

JUDGMENTS NOW FALLING…”And the cities of the nations fell”

Revelation 16:19

.

It is obvious that God has left America to itself. Judgments are now falling…National debt climbing by billions every week, Irresponsible government spending, decriminalization of street-drugs, collapsed borders, increasing crime, cities-in-anarchy, rampant-sexual-perversion, rising immorality, corrupt justice-system, corrupt political system, censorship of free speech, decadent-school-systems, increasing brotherly-hate, increasing sodomy,

.

.

.

.

.

.

.

.

.

.

Because lawlessness is increased, most people’s love will grow cold. But the one who endures to the end, he will be saved.”

Matthew 24:12

.

The general populace is greatly confounded by the government allowing the borders to be flooded with anyone and everyone crashing into the western nations. Many are deeply saddened to see all the lawlessness abounding. And yet, God’s people knew that lawlessness would abound in these last days before the 2nd Coming of Christ.

.

Now, the so-called “party of compassion”, in their perverted understanding of compassion, pride themselves that they are showing mercy to those from poorer countries, allowing them to lawlessly crash through the borders of the western nations.

.

And yet, while they “showing compassion” to one group, they are trampling on other groups who must suffer the consequences of allowing millions of non-citizens to come in and deplete the recourses of taxpaying citizens!

“The wicked shall be turned into hell, and all the nations that forget God.”

Psalms 9:17 

.

But to get a fuller understanding of the underlying cause of the breakdown and collapse of the western nation, we must realize that the above verse from Psalms 9:17 is now being applied to the western nations which once embraced the Christian Reformation. Yes, the nations which once rejoiced in the Protestant Reformation have now turned their backs on Heaven and have pursued materialism, hedonism, secularism, and other related endeavors.

“GOOD NEWS FROM A FAR COUNTRY”

Proverbs 25:25

.

But even though the world was seemingly going mad, and sinking into the bottomless pit of sin, God was allowing all these things for the purpose of purifying His saints, and helping them to place all their hope and trust in Him, instead of trusting in Man, and in the institutions of men.

.

And now, realizing that there was nothing left in the world for them to lean upon, God’s abounding grace caused His remnant people to fully trust in the exceeding great and precious promises of His Word. Thus, the saints of God began to shine in such a way that the secularists and apostate churches could not ignore! The promises of God’s Word now became like stepping-stones of safety in an upward highway of holiness out of the craziness and abject evil which burned like a fiery furnace all around the world! Now, the church became like highly polished gemstones, purified as precious gold and silver, and shining even as the Sun! And thus, God’s purpose of the Great Tribulation was fulfilled, and Christ was ready to return for His true Church, and God would bring them to be with Him, in Heaven.

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.
