Daily Devotional, Year 3: October 23

Mark Now Given, Part 8: “Pandemic Madness…or…Devil-Designed-Deception?”

To read Part 1, go here…Today’s Devotional – April 3rd (Mark Now Given!)

.

.

“And that no man might buy or sell,

save he that had the mark,

or the name of the beast,

or the number of his name.”

Revelation 13:17

 

.

All this pandemic madness and the subsequent lockdowns and mandates are terribly confusing to most people.

.

Why all the lies, hypocrisy, censoring, and obfuscation by the government, as well as by the media?

.

Why the draconian lockdowns, mandates, and hyperbolic rhetoric coming from government and media?

.

Why has this pandemic ignited such a vitriolic over-reaction by government and media?

.

And why do the authorities insist, that the only way to fight the pandemic is by means of forcing vaccinations on the public, while completely ignoring the other alternative therapies which have proven to be possibly more effective in fighting this virus?

.

Well, many earthy reasons have been offered to explain this pandemic madness, such as “It’s all about power and politics!”, or “Follow the money!”, or, “They’re all a bunch of idiots!”, or even, “They’re all about totalitarian control!”

.

And perhaps there is much truth to the underlying reasons for why this pandemic has been handled like no other pandemic, even the pandemics of yesteryear, which were much more deadly.

.

But to really understand what is going on, we must put on our “Son-glasses” and try to see this incredible phenomenon from a heavenly/biblical perspective.

.

The Bible did prophesy that there would come a day in which, “And that no man might buy or sell, save he that had the mark, or the name of the beast, or the number of his name.” Revelation 13:17

.

Yes, there is a buying/selling aspect which becoming more prevalent and prominent with each passing day! The laws and mandates are becoming increasingly oppressive. Businesses are declaring bankruptcy. Individuals are getting fired. Landlords cannot collect rent. The government is becoming more totalitarian. Government spokespeople are telling any lie which bolsters their agenda, knowing that the corrupt media will cover for them.

.

Things are getting downright scary, as we watch a great nation, founded upon liberty and justice, crumbling before our eyes!

.

But it is the opinion of many Christians that what we are now witnessing is the precursor to Mark of the Beast. Or maybe it’s a type of “rehearsal” for this 2,000 year old Bible prophecy.

.

Well, nobody knows for certain. But time will tell.

.

In the mean time, it certainly has been a wake-up call for many Christians!

.

But the Good News is, that today is still the day of Salvation! And all those who desire to live forever, should not delay to come to the foot of the Cross, and plead for grace, mercy, and deliverance!

.

We have everything to win. And we have everything to lose!

.

.

.

.

GOOD NEWS!

.

Well, the Good News in all this bad report is, that even though it becomes more and more difficult to preach the true Gospel, the Lord will not be hindered in His purpose for His people!

.

For the Lord will polish His precious jewels (His faithful followers), so that a Believer will shine increasingly more brightly until he (or she) will dazzle, yea, even blind any unbelieving onlooker, to the point that the onlooker will, “so falling down on his face he will worship God, and report that God is in you of a truth.” 1st Corinthians 14:25

LOCATING THE DRAGON

.

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. The 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.
