“For He will finish the work,

and cut it short in righteousness:

because a short work

will the Lord make upon the earth.”

Romans 9:28

.

And just what “pot” are Christians being stewed in?

.

It is the “stew pot” of Mammon (materialism), hedonism, and immorality.

“Faithful are the wounds of a friend; but the kisses of an enemy are deceitful.”

Proverbs 27:6

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:Castillo_de_Disneyland.jpgYes, “the god of this world” gave the western nations of gigantic makeover, transforming a world of scarcity and famine into a veritable cornucopian super-society! (2nd Corinthians 4:4)

.

And his present-day Antichrist-world-system has become, to a great extent, a theme-parklike adventureland in which his loyal citizenry can pursue their fleshly pleasures and their proud, ambitious dreams like never before possible!

.

And Christians have been all but swept away by this flood of Sodom-like opulence, pursuing many of the same pleasures and dreams which the unsaved masses go after.

“Their horses also are swifter than the leopards…”

Habakkuk 1:8

.

There is now occurring a sinister paradigm shift throughout the world. And it seems as if the world is no longer content to maintain this deceptive “friendship” with God’s people.

.

As a matter of fact, the changes now occurring are beginning to speed up with leopard-like rapidity to the point that people are scratching their heads and saying, “What in the world is going on here!? Why is this planet getting so crazy-evil!?”

“…the kisses of an enemy are deceitful.”

Proverbs 27:6

Yes, it seems that Satan is now on the march! He and his vast army of evil angels are goading the world’s inhabitants to turn against all that is good and godly, it seems.

.

Oh yes, the world has its own form of pretentious goodness, often referred to as, “Political Correctness”.

.

But even here, these politically protected entities are even being manipulated to oppress the freedoms which Christians have long enjoyed for many decades.

.

Well, as the prophet Habakkuk forewarned, it is now time for Christians to “RUN!” And many similar Bible warnings likewise tell us to “flee to the mountains” in these last moments of time.

.

And so, knowing that “all things work together for good to those that love God” (Romans 8:28), let’s not ignore this incredible societal wake-up call, and begin to use any remaining time to good account, as we “cram for our finals”, so to speak! Yes, there is no more time to dilly-dally in the world as we have been doing for much too long!

.

As the Bible tells us…“Flee out of the midst of Babylon, and deliver every man his soul: be not cut off in her iniquity; for this is the time of the LORD’S vengeance; He will render unto her a recompense.” Jeremiah 51:6

7 STARS IMITATE THE CROSS OF ORION

.

 This phenomenon begins in late October, in the pre-dawn hours. It then begins a little earlier each night, and lasts for several months, until they both appear to lie down once again.

The Cross of Orion Constellation star-chart.

This Wikipedia star-chart to the left, has this Orion Constellation sketched in. You must locate Orion, when it is mid-sky, between east and west. You’ll be facing southward most likely, unless you are far south. Try to imagine it as a Cross on a steep hill. The 3-star belt of Orion becomes the crest of the hill. The 3 very faint stars that make up Orion’s head become the very top of the Cross.

.

 

Next, locate the 7 Stars Constellation. This 7 Stars Constellation is seen by facing northward. It stands upright a little later in the night. Eventually, Orion will lay down and no longer be seen as an uplifted Cross! Beginning in November, the 7 Stars (AKA Big Dipper) can be seen as a Cross a little bit later in evening.

.

When you are comfortable in locating Orion & The 7 Stars Constellations, then show a friend. This can be a great witnessing tool!
