“In meekness instructing those that oppose themselves;

if God peradventure will give them repentance

to the acknowledging of the truth;”

2nd Timothy 2:25

TWO SPIRITS IN THE WORLD

.

In Part 1 of this series on “The Two Spirits in the World” (click here), it was established that there are two ruling spirits in the world: “The Spirit of Truth”, and “the spirit of error”.

.

One Spirit is ruled from Heaven, while the other is ruled from Hell (“Hell” being the spiritual darkness of this world “Tartaroo”, and yes, Hell is also the grave, “Sheol”).

.

And so, either you are indwelt by one spirit or the other.

.

There’s no third alternative!

.

There’s no neutral ground in this world!

.

You are either indwelt by the Spirit of God, or you are indwelt by, “the prince of the power of the air, the spirit that now worketh in the children of disobedience:” Ephesians 2:2

YELLOW JOURNALISM

.

“…them that perish; because they received not the love of the truth…”

2nd Thessalonians 2:10, 11

.

One great arena in which it is now very easy to see the blatant hypocrisy of mankind is in the world of politics. The war between the right and left has heated up to the point that lies are told and false accusations are being hurled about, each and every day!

.

https://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:Hearst_1906_Wizard_of_Ooze.jpgAnd it doesn’t take a genius to realize that “Yellow Journalism” has become the industry standard for most of the major media outlets, as they collude with their favorite political faction in spreading those lies, half-truths, false accusations, and cover-ups which go out to the mostly naïve general public on a daily basis.

.

But in addition to the naivety of many, it’s amazing to witness so many other politically active members of the general populace being all too willing to buy into those lies!  They seem to be happy with lies, just as long as those obvious lies and deceptions and half-truths align with and bolster their own political biases!

FLAT-EARTHERS!?

https://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:Flat_Earth_Theory.png.

Another area exists in which mankind’s self-deception really shows up in various conspiracy theories. For example, there is a large group of people who actually claim to believe the earth to be flat. By taking several Bible verses out of context and ignoring the scientific realities, this self-deceived confederacy of “Flat-Earth Truthers” have actually convinced themselves that the earth is flat!

.

Yes, this and many other similar and ridiculous conspiracy theories, only reveal just how incredibly self-deceived that we humans can become!

.

Listen to Scripture…“But evil men and seducers shall wax worse and worse, deceiving, and being deceived.” 2nd Timothy 3:13

.

And this above verse reveals that in this very day, men’s own evil hearts will deceive themselves. And to believe such utter nonsense (which many conspiracy theories are), shows just how demonically possessed the human mind can become, when NOT under the protective power of the Holy Spirit of Truth!

“The heart is deceitful above all things”

.

Even one the world’s poets wrote the line, “A man hears what he wants to hear and disregards the rest”.

http://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:Commons-tan_brainwashing.png.

Of course, this saying is merely a man-conceived idea. But it nevertheless aligns with what the Bible reveals: “…yea, let God be true, but every man a liar…” Romans 3:4

.

Yes, we are a world of liars, each and every one of us, even as the Lord says, through the prophet, Jeremiah…“The heart (the mind) is deceitful above all things, and desperately wicked: who can know it?” Jeremiah 17:9 (parenthetical comment by website Editor)

.

Here again, the Bible further confirms that every man’s heart is “deceitful above all things, and desperately wicked: who can know it?”

“The thief cometh…to steal…to kill…to destroy”

John 10:10

.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:Martin,_John_-_Satan_presiding_at_the_Infernal_Council_-_1824.JPG

“SO, JUST WHY DOES SATAN RAISE UP THESE GROUPS?”

.

TO CONFUSE: Satan fills the world with many false ideas, which only further confuses mankind, making it almost impossible to see the light of Truth found in the Scriptures.

.

TO SIDETRACK: And this master-deceiver invents false ideologies and various areas of intrigue in hopes of consuming man’s thoughts, thus sidetracking humans away from their duty to search God’s Word on a daily, (even an hourly) basis.

.

TO DECEIVE & DESTROY: Yes, Satan has done an incredible job of deceiving and destroying the souls of unbelievers (and many church-goers) with his false doctrines and false ideologies.

.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:Martin,_John_-_Satan_presiding_at_the_Infernal_Council_-_1824.JPG

TO CREATE SKEPTICISM: And because the world is absolutely filled to the brim with lies and deceits, the hearts of human have become jaded and unbelieving and skeptical, even when the truth is spoken!

.

TO CREATE ANIMOSITY: animosity of one group against the other group: With all the countless political/social/religious factions in the world, Satan has successfully created division between these groups, causing great confusion, animosity, and distrust in this hardhearted and stiff-necked, “World of Lies”!

.

TO DISCOURAGE: When many children who grow up in “cultish” false gospel communes, finally decide to reject and separate from their parent’s, zealous fanaticism. And these now-fully-grown adult children are often so discouraged with the loveless rule-keeping they were forced to endure, are now so discouraged with anything related to the Gospel, that they become forever hardened against the true Gospel of Christ.

“Come Out of Her, My People!”

Revelation 18:4

.

http://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:USMC-06831.jpgBut amidst this very bad report, there nevertheless is some extremely Good News! Yes, even though the hour is late, God has graciously allowed us deceived ones time to come out of the City of Confusion, Babylon (Babylon the world, and Babylon the apostate church-world!)

.

And so, we must get down on our spiritual knees and plead with God to deliver us from the evil lies of Satan, as we humbly begin to search the Scriptures daily, for the truth which will by-and-by make us free!

.

And then we can confidently exclaim…

.

“…by the word of Thy lips

http://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:Holy_bible.jpgI have kept me from the paths of the destroyer….

O God…deliver me from the deceitful and unjust man…

O send out Thy light and Thy truth:

let them lead me;

let them bring me unto Thy holy hill,

and to Thy tabernacles…”

Psalm 17:4 & 43:1, 3

TODAY’S FEATURED HEAVENLY SIGN

The info and pics of the constellations on this site are all taken from Wikipedia and from The Internation Astronomical Union (click here to view their site)

.

.

.

.

THESE SIGNS ARE MENTIONED

.winter four constellations

From time to time, the Book of Revelation mentions stars. But when we get to Revelation Chapter 12, it speaks of two “great signs in heaven”. First, it speaks of the sign in heaven of a woman with child. Then it speaks of the sign in heaven of a great red dragon, with a tail that sweeps one-third of the stars and casts these stars down to the earth. So we get the sense that this phenomenon that the Apostle John was seeing, was closely intertwined with the starry host of the heavens. And these two signs in heaven, a woman, and a dragon, are a big part of this website, Signs Of Heaven.

.

And so this phenomenon that the Apostle John was seeing, was closely intertwined with the starry host of the heavens.

.

What really gives validity to this idea, is that God created the Universe in such a way, that if one looks at the major constellations, then this Revelation 12 scenario can be seen. So please read on. And if you really want to see this heavenly battle, you just might. It will take some real effort on your part. But through prayer, faith, and study of the site, God may just graciously open your eyes to see this amazing story written on the heavenly scroll above. But don’t wait! This heavenly scroll will soon be rolled up, just as it is written… “And the heaven departed as a scroll when it is rolled together;” Revelation 6:14

.

WINTER CONSTELLATIONS-SEEN IN FALL: This sketch to the right is how this constellation group appears in the eastern sky in fall. This is the four primary constellations of the Winter Constellations. They can be seen in this position, in the late fall above the eastern horizon. The Woman of Revelation 12 is commonly called Ursa Major or The Big Dipper and appears in the north. Orion the Soldier is the at the bottom is to the south of the Woman. The The Dragon of Revelation Constellation’s mouth isThe Hyades Cluster, and the tip of his tail is Pleiades, and his Wave of Water is primarily the  Auriga constellation. The Glorious Horse Constellation  head is of  Perseus Constellation and his rear end is Cassiopeia Constellation.
