“If I regard iniquity in my heart, the Lord will not hear me:”

God originally created this world to be a beautiful home for Mankind.

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

Yet when we fell from grace, this world began to change in many ways. Nature, to a certain extent, began to take on some changes. Many creatures and plants, etc., gradually took on dangerous aspects.

.

But in addition to giving nature the ability to become dangerous after the Fall of Man, God also designed nature to teach lessons about good and evil!

.

Yes, there are many creatures who exhibit appearances and behaviors, which teach us about heavenly virtues.

.

But many aspects of nature teach lessons about Satan’s government of Hell!

CUTTLEFISH: THE ULTIMATE IMPOSTORS!

.

One of the most amazing creatures ever created is the Cuttlefish! Actually, it is not a fish, but a type of mollusk, like a squid, or an octopus.

.

The reason why this creature is so incredible, is that it can just glance at its environment and instantly change its body to imitate that environment.

.

For instance, if it wants to hide from its enemies, or lie-in-wait for its victims, next to a sea-weed, it simply changes its color, spots, and shape to imitate that sea-weed. It can even instantly grow leaf-like appendages to imitate certain sea-weeds!

.

This little creature is nothing short of amazing!

CUTTLEFISH: SYMBOL OF SATAN

.

Well, God has created this little predator to give us further insight into the inner working of the kingdom of Satan.

(As this little 26 second video below shows, the Cuttlefish has the ability to paralyze his potential victims, by using his hypnotizing strobe-light effect! Amazing!)

.

Certainly Satan and his unseen minions love to make themselves invisible! That way, they can work their misery and woe upon this unsuspecting world, without its inhabitants becoming alarmed causing us to rebel against Satan’s kingdom, as we flee to God!

WILLIAM RANDOLPH HEARST

.

https://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:Hearst_1906_Wizard_of_Ooze.jpgWhen back in high school, the teachers of American history, briefly, but enthusiastically, taught of that infamous newspaper magnate, William Randolph Hearst.

.

And the main thrust of the classroom lesson was that Hearst wholeheartedly engaged in “Yellow Journalism”, as he used exaggerations and sensationalism in his vast and powerful empire of newspapers to promote his own personal political views.

.

And so, William R. Hearst was tagged with the demeaning title of being a “Yellow Journalist”.

THE INDUSTRY STANDARD

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

But what was once considered to be a despicable and disdainful form of dishonesty, has now become the industry standard in today’s world! You can just bet that school-kids no longer hear ad-nauseam lectures about Hearst’s “Yellow Journalism”!

.

In other words, “Yellow Journalism” has now become “the new normal” throughout the daily news industry, to a great degree!

.

Yes, not only newspapers, but radio, television and Internet are saturated with the same exaggerations, omissions, sensationalism, biased coverage, story-spiking, and sometimes, even out-and-out lies!

.

The volunteer self-censorship of today’s biased news sources has gotten so bad that, in order to truly discover what’s happening in the news, one would be forced to go to a number of different news sources, of various political stripes, and also some Christian news sources, in attempt to get the full story of what’s actually happening in the daily news. But even then, one might never get the full and complete truth on what’s really happening in the world!

UNDER THE GUISE OF UNBIASED NEWS REPORTING

.

https://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:Hearst_1906_Wizard_of_Ooze.jpg

Well, for those who are merely political commentators, it’s okay to give one’s own personal opinion on this or that topic. That’s what commentators do.

http://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:ABC_-_Good_Morning_America.jpg

.

And they don’t try to comment under the guise of being unbiased reporters. They freely acknowledge their biased opinions.

.

But in today’s world, there is such a jealousy for political supremacy in the on-going war between o-called, “liberalism” and “conservatism”, that most, or perhaps all news organizations feel it necessary to slant their stories to promote their own personal bias for one or the other of these two ideologies.

“TRUTH IS FALLEN IN THE STREET…”

A prophecy of Isaiah 59:14

.

https://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:Hearst_1906_Wizard_of_Ooze.jpg

In other words, these newspapers, radio, Internet, and television daily news sources pass themselves off as merely un-objectively reporting the dailhttps://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:Statue_of_Lady_Justice_in_Frankfurt.jpgy news.

.

But in reality, they are busy deciding which stories will further their political aims, and which stories oppose their personal politics.

.

And so, it’s hard to find a news source that doesn’t use Yellow Journalism!

.

And even political/social commentators quite often mis-report or omit important facts altogether, so as to purposely make their political enemies look even worse than they actually are!

.

So Yellow Journalism often extends even to political commentators, as well!

WHY ALL THE DECADENCE?

.

https://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:Hearst_1906_Wizard_of_Ooze.jpg

But the question which many are asking today is, “Why have our societies devolved into such a decadent condition?”

.

One great truth which must under-gird our understanding of this fallen world, is that Satan has been given the title, “the god of this world” (2nd Corinthians 4:4).

.

And so, the real puzzling question should actually be, “Why does anything in this, his fallen kingdom, have the appearance of goodness? If this world is Satan’s kingdom, then why is there any goodness at all?”

.

.

.

A “FORM OF GODLINESS” IN THIS WORLD

(see 2nd Corinthians 4:4)

.

https://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:Hearst_1906_Wizard_of_Ooze.jpg

Well, one other great truth is also found in 2nd Corinthians, “…for Satan himself is transformed into an angel of light. Therefore it is no great thing if his ministers also be transformed as the ministers of righteousness; whose end shall be according to their works.” 2nd Corinthians 11:14, 15

.
It is Satan’s great purpose to disguise his true nature of evil with a cloak of goodness.

.

Because if this world was totally and overtly evil, then the citizens of his kingdom would become alarmed, rebel against him, and return to God.

.

.

.

.

.

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

Romans 3:12

.

https://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:Hearst_1906_Wizard_of_Ooze.jpg

But there has always been deception and dishonesty in the world, as is written…“let God be true, but every man a liar;” Romans 3:12

.

This little verse presents a giant concept, namely, that each and every one of us are liars, by nature!

.

And so, it should not surprise us to see Yellow Journalism being practiced!

.

.

.

.

.

MAINTAINING A FACADE OF GOODNESS

.

https://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:Hearst_1906_Wizard_of_Ooze.jpg

But what’s surprising, is to see Yellow Journalism becoming the industry standard, such as has never before been seen!

.

Yes, with all the giant news organizations out there, you would think that at least some of them would attempt to be honest and unbiased in their reporting!

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

.

Well, the fact is, most news organizations do indeed attempt to maintain an air of honesty. After all, if they were totally dishonest, then nobody would watch or listen to them!

.

But when it comes to political and social issues, they just cannot seem to help themselves!

.

And even if they do report a story which helps “the other side”, that story will probably be buried as quickly as possible, so as to not help their political/social foes any more than necessary.

WORLD’S EVIL NOW MANIFEST

.

https://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:Hearst_1906_Wizard_of_Ooze.jpg

So what is the point to today’s devotional?

.

After all, both the political/social “leftists”, and the political/social “right”, are exposing the dishonesty of one-another all day long!

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

.

So why does this website feel the need to also “pile on” in this on-going mud-slinging match between these two opposing factions?

.

Well, this current political/social situation in which the kingdom of Satan is seemingly divided against itself makes it much more evident of just how futile it is for Christians to try to depend on the world for help.

“A KINGDOM…DIVIDED…CANNOT STAND!”

.

https://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:Hearst_1906_Wizard_of_Ooze.jpg

Yes, as Scripture reveals…“And if a kingdom be divided against itself, that kingdom cannot stand.” Mark 3:24

.

https://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:Trump_protest_San_Diego_-_May_26,_2016.jpgAnd so, as this heated battle between the “left” and “right” rages on, it seems as if Satan’s kingdom is now divided against itself.

.

And as the various news organizations take their respective sides in this fierce battle, it becomes a great opportunity for Christians and others to witness the utter futility of trying to depend on the world.

.

Truth and honesty are in short supply these days!

“THEN SHALL YE…DISCERN BETWEEN THE RIGHTEOUS & THE WICKED”

Malachi 3:18

.

https://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:Hearst_1906_Wizard_of_Ooze.jpg

And so, as we compare the dishonesty and hypocrisy of the world with the flawless righteousness of Heaven and Heaven’s Jesus, the contrast becomes much more distinct and evident!

https://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:Brooklyn_Museum_-_What_Our_Lord_Saw_from_the_Cross_(Ce_que_voyait_Notre-Seigneur_sur_la_Croix)_-_James_Tissot.jpg.

Yes, Jesus came into this world to save this world! But the world wanted nothing to do with that righteous Man!

.

And as we can now see, today’s corrupt world is no better than it was back in the day’s of Calvary’s cruel Cross, when lies resulted in His crucifixion!

.

.

“COME UNTO ME…AND I WILL GIVE YOU REST”

Matthew 11:28

.

And so, the offer still goes out daily, to one and all, to turn away from this hopelessly dying world, and return to the One who has not one dark spot of character, to worship the One who is the very essence of goodness and honesty! And if a man, woman, or child wishes to find truth, they need not look any further than the Bible!

.

And in the world to come, there will be none of the wickedness and selfishness that we now see all around us (and in all of us). There will be no more of Satan’s Yellow Journalism. His lies and deceit will be fully and finally destroyed!

.

And in the world to come, peace and harmony and honesty and brotherly love will reign supreme!

TODAY’S FEATURED HEAVENLY SIGN

THE NARROW GATE STARS

Winter Constellations in West

.

 

This most amazing phenomenon is seen throughout the winter. Although it can be observed most of the winter, it is seen best when it is the western part of the sky, at winter’s end (The end of winter being the final scene of this heavenly Gospel story). Orion , the Dragon, and the Glorious White Horse are beginning to descend into the western horizon (sketch to right is Winter Constellations descending into western horizon. This can actually be seen as early as December, in the pre-dawn hours).

.

And at this point it is apparent that the Fleeing Woman of Revelation 12 Constellation is veering toward the two bright stars, known as Castor and Pollux (sketch to below left). But the Wide Gate Stars are composed of the two brightest stars of the Auriga Constellation, known as the star, Capella, and the star, Menkalinan. The two stars, Castor and Pollux, make up the concept of the Orion’s Narrow Gate Stars.

Revelation 12 Woman & Orion's Gate & Wide Gate.

This can even be observed into June in the western sky (for a short time just after dark). While a dark night is best for seeing the Woman Constellation, the 4 stars which comprise the Narrow Gate/Wide Gate Stars can be seen even under mediocre conditions. It begins with the Fleeing Woman of Revelation 12 Constellation (AKA Ursa Major) going towards these two doors.

.

The sketch to left shows, the two doors are each composed of two bright stars. The two bright stars that comprise the Narrow Gate are the two brightest stars of the Orion the Reaper’s sickle. The two stars that comprise the ‘Wide Gate’ Stars are the two brightest stars of the wave of water that comes out of the Dragon Constellation’s mouth (for explanation of “Wave of Water”, just click here). The stars that make up the ‘Narrow Gate’ are about half the width of the Wide Gate (see sketch to right).

(For more information on Orion’s sickle, just click here,“Orion The Reaper”.)

.

Editor’s note: These sketches on this page are merely sketches. The stars are not in their exact place. However, they are close enough to find them in the night sky. But as with most stars, it takes persistence to finally locate them.

YELLOW JOURNALISM: TODAY’S INDUSTRY-STANDARD

.

It is nothing short of amazing to hear the amount and degree of obfuscation, https://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:Women%27s_March_on_Washington_(32593123745).jpgstory-spiking, and abject lies, etc., in today’s media, when it comes to anything that may have an effect on politically-correct issues.

.

Very often, it’s almost like the major media has gone completely insane, because of their jealousy for their own political ideology! It seems as though they would rather see the entire nation fail, than to lose the slightest political advantage.

.

And as of late, the lying has gotten to the point that it’s become obvious to anyone who hears them!

.

“…AND EVERY MAN A LIAR”

.

Be that as it may, these political and media leaders don’t seem to care that they are making themselves look disingenuous! They know that their listeners are every bit as zealous for their political party as they are, and will accept those lies even though it’s an obvious deception!

.

But listen to God’s assessment of the human heart…“let God be true, but every man a liar” Romans 3:4

.

Yes, the Bible tells us that every one of us is a liar, in heart.

.

.

.

.

.

.

OUR ‘DESPERATELY WICKED’ HEARTS!

.

And if the above assessment isn’t bad enough, just listen to Jeremiah’s assessment of the human heart condition…“The heart is deceitful above all things, and desperately wicked: who can know it?” Jeremiah 17:9

.

Here is another verse which completely condemns the entire human race.

.

We all have incredibly corrupt and self-deceiving hearts, all of us!

THE SPIRIT OF ANTICHRIST IN US

.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:Castillo_de_Disneyland.jpgAnd the reason why we are so corrupt, is found in the following passage…“Wherein in time past ye walked according to the course of this world, according to the prince of the power of the air, the spirit that now worketh in the children of disobedience:” Ephesians 2:2

.

Here is the awful truth: the entire unsaved human race is indwelt with the spirit of antichrist…“And every spirit that confesseth not that Jesus Christ is come in the flesh is not of God: and this is that spirit of antichrist, whereof ye have heard that it should come; and even now already is it in the world.” 1st John 4:3

.

Here it is! There is a spirit of antichrist which rules over this world and indwells all unsaved humans.

ANTICHRISTS: THE UNSAVED PEOPLE OF THE WORLD

.

http://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:Shoppers_on_Dundas,_near_Yonge.jpgNow listen to the above passage continues, which speaks of the “Spirit of truth”, and also, the “spirit of error”“They (antichrists) are of the world: therefore speak they of the world, and the world heareth them. We are of God: he that knoweth God heareth us; he that is not of God heareth not us. Hereby know we the “Spirit of truth”, and the “spirit of error”. 1st John 4:5, 6

.

So, no wonder that so many of the unsaved leaders of our society and today’s media are so willing to lie! They are possessed by the “spirit of error”

THE DEVIL: THE FATHER OF LIES

.

As Jesus said…“Ye are of your father the devil, and the lusts of your father ye will https://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:Trump_protest_San_Diego_-_May_26,_2016.jpgdo…When he speaketh a lie, he speaketh of his own: for he is a liar, and the father of it. And because I tell you the truth, ye believe Me not.” John 8:44, 45

.

Oh wow! This is such a stinging condemnation of us all, it is no wonder that we put Him on the Cross just a short time later, for saying such things!

.

Well, because this world has a giant schism right down the middle between the two major political ideologies, the following prophecy is now coming to fruition…“Every kingdom divided against itself is brought to desolation; and a house divided against a house falleth.” Matthew 12:25 & Luke 11:17

.

Yes, the current strife between the two major ideologies is more or less a hopeless and even a pandemic condition. And it is clear evidence that we have arrived at the end. Satan’s kingdom of this world is dividing, and cannot stand according to this above verse.

“GOOD NEWS FROM A FAR COUNTRY!”

https://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:USMC-081218-M-4507D-001.jpg

Proverbs 25:25

.

But amidst all this horrible news, there nevertheless is some Good News!

.

https://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:Angel_prayers.jpgYes, this is still the day of Salvation! And anyone who desires to escape the awful judgments now coming down upon the world, still has a chance to escape all these things! And those who are sick and tired of being possessed by the spirit of lying and error can cry out for God’s mercy and grace!

.

And should God peradventure give us repentance to the acknowledging of the truth, we will then receive the “Spirit of Truth” in which God’s Holy Spirit will come and make His abode in our hearts!

.

And no more will Satan be our father! But God will now become our Father and give us a love for the truth!
