“The Thought Police Have Finally Arrived!”

.

.

.

.https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:1984first.jpg

In George Orwell’s little book, 1984, he presented a world in which the rulers had succeeded in complete totalitarian control over the masses. There were even “Thought Police” to control the people’s thoughts.

THE THOUGHT POLICE HAVE FINALLY ARRIVED!

.

Well, about the only thing that Orwell had miscalculated in this predictive novel was the date for this super-society to come into reality. He was about 35 years off!

.

But that day has finally arrived in which society can (and will) be brought under the control of dictatorial rulers! Orwell’s book should have been titled “2018”!

.

Yes, by means of the modern media, “Big Brother” (aka Satan) can now completely control the masses.

.

And now, these high-tech devices are beginning to blacklist all those who do not hold to the maxims which our society now approves of.

THE NEW LAWS JUST LIKE THE OLD LAWS

Just like in every totalitarian society, past and present, the new thought police are beginning their war against the Bible.

.

It is more than just a little ironically strange and weird that in the very place which became the centerpiece for the modern-day protection of “freedom of speech”, has now become the centerpiece to stamp out “freedom of speech”!

.

And perhaps even stranger, it is the very same political party who have long prided themselves as being the arbiters and protectors of that freedom, who are now the very same political party applauding any media outlet or violent mob which squelches the free speech of their political foes!

THE BIBLE FORETOLD OF THIS DAY!

http://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:DDLI.png

.

It’s truly frightening to see all this totalitarianism being ratcheted up so swiftly.

.

But the Bible foretold that this day would finally arrive…“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

.

Now this verse by itself may not give us enough understanding into the current-day phenomenon of censoring.

“Buy the truth, and sell it not!”

.

But this next verse complements the previous verse found in Revelation 13:17.

http://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:DDLI.png.

This complementary verse is found in Proverbs 23:23…“Buy the truth, and sell it not; also wisdom, and instruction, and understanding.”

.

Now from this and other similar verses, it is revealed that “buying and selling” actually has to do with preaching the Gospel of Jesus.

.

And so, the Bible prophesied that the day would come when the true and unvarnished Word of God would be cut off…“And that no man might buy or sell (the truth)” (parenthetical comment by website editor)

THE “GOOD NEWS FROM A FAR COUNTRY”

Proverbs 25:25

But the Good News in all this coming totalitarianism, is that God’s Word is still available to read!

.

And most everyone is familiar with this next verse…“And ye shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you free.” John 8:32

.

Yes, the continuing search for knowledge of the Bible and the Bible’s Jesus will make us free indeed!

TODAY’S FEATURED HEAVENLY SIGN

THE WOMAN ON THE ALTAR CONSTELLATION

.

.

.

.

.

“Let my prayer Flower of Heaven Constellation w/leaves

.

be set forth

.

before Thee as incense;

.

and the lifting up

.

of my hands

.

as the evening sacrifice.”

.

Psalm 142:2

LOCATING THIS CONSTELLATION…

.

This “Golden Altar” Constellation is only seen in winter through spring, in mid-sky.  It is to the south of the “Fleeing Woman Constellation” (AKA Ursa Major  or The Big Dipper).

.

The “Fleeing Woman of Revelation 12” Constellation is in the northeastern sky in this sketch. You would be facing east and looking very high up almost to mid-sky to see this constellation group this way. The altar is farther south but still in the eastern sky. This altar itself is commonly known as Leo Major“, with the smoke rising beingLeo Minor“.

 

.

A little farther down this page is the sketch of this same constellation in the latter part of winter, when you look at them facing westward. You will notice that what looked like Gospel seed being cast from her left hand and left foot (see “Woman of Revelation 12-The Fleeing Woman” article for explanation of casting “Gospel Seed”) now appears like smoke or incense rising from the altar. It is not clear why the altar is sideways in back of the Woman. It would make more sense if it were directly under the Woman. However, the Lord must have some spiritual truth to convey concerning this odd positioning of the Altar. The 7 Stars (Big Dipper) is easy to see with its very bright 7 stars. But the Revelation 12 Woman (Ursa Major) must be seen on a dark starry night, away from city lights.

.

THE ZODIAC CONSTELLATION NAMES

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 (such as Scorpio or Sagittarius, etc.), must be given, solely for the purpose of locating them on star-charts.
