“The Death of Common Sense”

“Thus saith the LORD, thy redeemer,

and He that formed thee from the womb,

I am the LORD that maketh all things;

that stretcheth forth the heavens alone;

that spreadeth abroad the earth by Myself; 

That frustrateth the tokens of the liars,

and maketh diviners mad;

that turneth wise men backward,

and maketh their knowledge foolish…”

Isaiah 44:24. 25

.

Those who, long ago, sailed to this fledging nation, exhausted from the centuries of religious/civil tyranny in Europe, began what they thought was to be a Christian nation!

.

Yes, America was the beginning of a great experiment in freedom of political/religious speech, as well as liberty of conscience!

Daniel 7:25

.

And God mercifully gave this nation an incredible constitution: a wonderful gift given by the Almighty, because of cruel tyranny He allowed by the harsh hand of Satan, throughout the various European nations during the centuries of The Dark Ages.

Yes, throughout the Dark Ages of Europe, Satan, using the evil, apostate church of that day, wore out the saints through various forms of persecution, against them and against the Bible they loved!

.

And the forefathers of this new nation eventually named it, “The United States of America”.

.

.

Yes, God in His mercy, gave this nation His manifold blessings, knowing how His people suffered so greatly through the centuries of the Dark Ages of Europe! And He allowed the United States to grow and thrive.

.

But as America prospered, the Church began to also enjoy the carnal riches and pleasures of the world. Thus, the Church quickly became sleepy-eyed and lukewarm, fulfilling the words of Jesus…“Rev 3:15  I know thy works, that thou art neither cold nor hot: I would thou wert cold or hot. 
Rev 3:16  So then because thou art lukewarm, and neither cold nor hot, I will spue thee out of My mouth. 
Rev 3:17  Because thou sayest, I am rich, and increased with goods, and have need of nothing; and knowest not that thou art wretched, and miserable, and poor, and blind, and naked:”

.

But the U.S.A. was allowed to continue, gradually devolving from its original greatness.

.

And as a result, over the past decades, the secular leaders of this nation, without any connection to Heaven lost whatever wisdom that God mercifully shed on this once great nation!

.

And now, judgment was finally and fully falling on the world’s last great hope for true liberty.

.

And those secular and atheist leaders made increasingly bad decisions for this declining nation. In the various government bodies, God’s judgment was now falling. And as of late, it seems apparent that God’s blessings have been removed from this decadent, cornucopian super-society, while a few other nations seem to be getting more and more powerful!

.

But behind the scenes, in the dark shadows of the spiritual realm, Satan had now been permitted to carry out his evil plans. This world’s last great experiment in freedom was ripe for destruction. And even though, the foolish decisions of our leaders seem to lack all rhyme and reason, Satan, “the god of this world” is orchestrating all those bad decisions in such a way that will bring a snare upon the entire world, as he helps usher in the long afore-promised war in the place which is called “Armageddon”.

.

While the media goliaths were busily deceiving the populace into a false sense of security, the sin-sick nation was receiving her just recompense for her past sins.

.

Meanwhile, the apostate churches of the last days, the previous “protestant churches”, were now teaching false doctrines, and bringing in world-loving elements into the church. Yes, the Church was now fast asleep and allowed Satan to steal a march upon them, bringing in false brethren into the churches, greatly compromising the churches and the truth.

.

And while we were all sleeping, Satan was busily setting in place every last detail of his plans to persecute God’s people. But when all was ready, Satan no longer worked in the shadows. No, rather, he began to work boldly through secularists, engaging in seeming madness and overt wickedness, which, of course, gave a rude awakening to God’s sleeping saints! Now, Satan’s antichrist forces began doing unthinkable things, such as perverting and even mutilating young children! The church could not believe such atrocities could ever be committed by society. But Satan’s world-system was now so powerful, there was seemingly little that the Church could do against the abject insanity now occurring in so many corners of the world!

.

“GOOD NEWS FROM A FAR COUNTRY”

Proverbs 25:25

.

But even though the world was seemingly going mad, and sinking into the bottomless pit of sin, God was allowing all these things for the purpose of purifying His saints, and helping them to place all their hope and trust in Him, instead of trusting in Man, and in the institutions of men. And now, realizing that there was nothing left in the world for them to lean upon, God’s abounding grace caused His remnant people to fully trust in the exceeding great and precious promises of His Word. Thus, the saints of God began to shine in such a way that the secularists and apostate churches could not ignore! The promises of God’s Word now became like stepping stones of safety in an upward highway of holiness out of the craziness and abject evil which burned like a fiery furnace all around the world! Now, the church became like highly polished gem-stones, purified as precious gold and silver, and shining even as the Sun! And thus, God’s purpose of the Great Tribulation was fulfilled, and Christ was ready to return for His true Church, and God would bring them to be with Him, in Heaven.

DRAGON’S WAVE OF WATER

.

.

Dragon of Revelation 12 Constellation

.

In Revelation, the Dragon of Revelation 12 is described as having seven heads, ten horns, and seven crowns. However, the Dragon of Revelation 12 Constellation  up in the night sky does not. But God has faithfully created this wave of water, in such a way, as to illustrate this same concept of the seven heads, ten horns, and seven crowns. Because this wave of water is basically comprised of ten stars.

.

The main body of the wave has seven stars (#’s 1 thru 7, in the sketch), and the tip of the crest of the wave has the other three stars, (#’s 8, 9, 10).

.

So in this wave, we see the same 7/10 numbering found in the Revelation description of the heads/horns/crowns of the Dragon.

.

And this gives us a great clue, as to where in the Bible we should look, to find out the riddle as to just what or who do these 7 heads, 10 crowns, and 7 horns represent. Because, the Bible speaks very much about floods and waters as being associated with Satan (the Dragon).

.

Listen again… “When the waves of death compassed me…THE FLOODS OF UNGODLY MEN made me afraid. The sorrows of Hell compassed me about;” 2nd Samuel 22:5.

ATHEISM AND THE NUMBER “6”

.

And so, without going into a lengthy discussion, let’s just say that of all the 7 heads of Antichrist, the head which most closely aligns with atheism would logically be the 6th head. And why the 6th head? The Book of Revelation, Chapter 13 warns that the Antichrist Beast has a number of 666. And it describes this number as being the “number of a man”. The number “6” in Scripture has to do with “Man”. It is a number which reminds of the 6th Day of Creation; the day that Man was created. Man was created on the 6th day. And so, Mankind is very much connected with the number “6” 

.

And since atheism is the religion which holds Mankind as the supreme ruler of Earth, then the number “6”, being the number of Man, seems to correspond to the 6th head of Antichrist, very well. 

.

Now these ideas may not be “written in stone”, as the saying goes. And nothing hinges upon, nor falls apart, with or without these theories. But sufficed to say, there is strong evidence that these concepts have biblical support. 

.

And so, this 6th star in the Revelation 12 Dragon’s wave of water, would correspond to the 6th head of the Antichrist Beast. And as already said, “waves” in Scripture, represent the many false ideologies which Satan has flooded the world with, throughout time. So that is why this Signs Of Heaven website believes that atheism was the 6th head of Antichrist.
