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

Why do the heathen rage, and (why do) the people imagine a vain thing?

Psalm 2:1, 2

All this pandemic madness, the subsequent lockdowns, and iron-fisted mandates are terribly confusing and perplexing to most people.

.

Multitudes are confounded, asking, “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 even more effective in fighting this virus?”

.

.

.

.

.

“yea, also the heart of the sons of men is full of evil, and madness is in their heart while they live”

Ecclesiastes 9:3

.

https://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:NSW_police_use_illegal_pain_hold_on_activist_at_University_of_Sydney.JPGWell, many earthy reasons have been offered to explain this pandemic madness, such as, “It’s all about power and politics!”, or they will say, “Follow the money!”, or, “They’re all a bunch of Nazis!”, 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 though many of the pandemics of yesteryear were much more deadly.

.

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

Revelation 13:17

.

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 is 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 and protects their agenda, knowing that the corrupt media will always be there to cover for them.

.

Things are getting downright scary, as we watch a once-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!

“….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

.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:Martin,_John_-_Satan_presiding_at_the_Infernal_Council_-_1824.JPGBut still having on our heavenly “Son-glasses”, we understand that it is much more than mere humans orchestrating this great pandemic paradigm-shift!

.

No, but rather, it is, “the Prince of the Power of the Air, that spirit that now worketh in the children of disobedience” (the unsaved citizens of this antichrist world-system), as he works in and through government leaders and today’s complicit/corrupt media, to carry out his end-time plans to entrap, ensnare, and destroy unbelievers and even church-goers!

http://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/commons/3/38/Tissot_Habakkuk.jpgHABAKKUK SAYS, “RUN CHRISTIAN, RUN!”

.

The prophet, Habakkuk, speaks of the very frightful hour in which we now find ourselves…Why dost Thou shew me iniquity, and cause me to behold grievance? for spoiling and violence are before me: and there are that raise up strife and contention. Therefore the law is slacked, and judgment doth never go forth: for the wicked doth compass about the righteous; therefore wrong judgment proceedeth.” Habakkuk 2:3, 4

.

http://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:Genesis19-17.jpgHere we see that God knew all about this current situation! He knows the end from the beginning, and counsels us, that when this hour does come…“And the LORD answered me, and said, Write the vision, and make it plain upon tables, that he may run that readeth it…For it is yet for an appointed time, but at the end it shall speak…” Habakkuk 2:2, 3

.

Here is the plain warning for God’s people to “RUN!”, when we see this overwhelming tsunami of wickedness beginning to overflow the world, and overflow the churches!

“GOOD NEWS FROM A FAR COUNTRY”

Proverbs 25:25

.

http://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:A_Family_of_Deer_in_a_Landscape_with_a_Waterfall.jpgWell, God’s people must flee to the spiritual mountains, just as Lot fled to the literal mountain, from the impending destruction of ancient Sodom!

.

But the Good News in all this bad report is, that, “He shall dwell on high…bread shall be given him; his waters shall be sure.” Isaiah 33:16

.

Yes, on our spiritual Mount Sion of refuge, God will abundantly supply our heavenly bread (of His life-giving Word) and the merciful waters of His grace, as we are now commanded to, “flee from the wrath to come”! Matthew 3:7

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.
