Daily Devotional, Year 2 – DECEMBER 5

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:Finger_pointing.jpg“You Can’t Handle The Truth!!!”

.

There was a box-office blockbuster movie in which the phrase, “You can’t handle the truth!” quickly became a much repeated one, used in all sorts of various everyday situations.

.

And as with so much of what the unsaved world does, says, and creates, this phrase, too, can also be translated into a heavenly reality.

“They have not known nor understood: for He (God) hath shut their eyes, that they cannot see; and their hearts, that they cannot understand”

Isaiah 44:8

.

You see, just like the civilians in that movie could not understand, nor tolerate the innerworkings of the military, so too, this world’s unsaved citizenry cannot understand, nor can they tolerate the things of Heaven!

.

Okay, so maybe this is a poor comparison, since the commander in the movie was allowing and justifying sinful actions.

.

But the fact is, there are so many truths which are “hard to swallow”, as the expression goes.

Acts 24:25

.

One major stumbling block is because the Bible describes the unsaved as…“having no hope, and without God in the world”. Ephesians 2:12

.

Yes, without the assurance of everlasting life, the subject of death and eternal judgment is just too difficult for unbelievers, as well as many professing believers who may be faithful church-attendees but have never truly received Salvation.

Psalm 16:11

.

Another major stumbling block for most is that the Gospel, the true Gospel just seems much too bleak and austere! They look at the self-denying lifestyle of true Believers and shutter at the thought of giving up so many worldly idols, such as television, partying, and all the other selfish pleasures and ambitions which Christians shun.

.

Another truth which the world can’t handle, is living a life of prayer, faith, holiness, and Bible study/contemplation. The world has no taste for such things, nor do they understand that the indwelling Spirit of Holiness gives peace, joy, and pleasure like an ever-flowing river to Christians.

John 7:7

.

Still another truth which they can’t handle is to realize that Christ condemned this world, the only world that unbelievers know!

.

And so, when they perceive that Christians anxiously wait for, and live for the world-to-come, it’s often more than they can handle.

“GOOD NEWS FROM A FAR COUNTRY!”

Proverbs 25:25

.

But the extremely Good News is, that for all those who are being saved, the Spirit of Holiness does indeed, indwell them, filling them with joy, peace, and love for all those daily duties!

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

But even more wonderful, that same Spirit gives an ever-increasing christlike love, sympathy, and understanding for the lost souls of this hopeless world.

.

And out of that deep and earnest yearning for their salvation, Christians everywhere are crying out daily, yea, hourly for God’s mercy, grace, and redeeming love, that those lost souls too, might also know and love the truth, which shall set them free from their bondage to sin, suffering, and hopelessness!

“For we are unto God a sweet savour of Christ,

in them that are saved, and in them that perish:

To the one we are the savour of death unto death;

and to the other the savour of life unto life.”

2nd Corinthians 2:15-16

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!
