The Fearful Message of Habakkuk

.

.

.

.

.

.

.

“I will stand upon my watch, and set me upon the tower,

.

and will watch to see what He will say unto me, and what I shall answer when I am reproved.

And the LORD answered me, and said, Write the vision, and make it plain upon tables, that he may run that readeth it.

.

For the vision is yet for an appointed time,

.

but at the end it shall speak, and not lie:

.

though it tarry, wait for it; because it will surely come,

.

it will not tarry.”

.

Habakkuk 2:1-3

HABAKKUK: BOOK OF ALLEGORIEShttp://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/commons/3/38/Tissot_Habakkuk.jpg

.

God foretells us that Book of Habakkuk will unscramble itself in these last days. That’s right! God wrote the Book of Habakkuk in allegories. And in the day that Habakkuk’s allegories unscramble themselves, and begin to speak, the Reader is counseled to “RUN!”

.

Listen… “And the LORD answered me, and said, Write the vision, and make it plain upon tables, that he may run that readeth it. For the vision is yet for an appointed time, but at the end it shall speak, and not lie: though it tarry, wait for it; because it will surely come, it will not tarry.” Habakkuk 2:2, 3

.

And so, the questions to be answered are these: “Is Habakkuk’s vision beginning to speak? Is it time to run? And just where in the world do we run?”

But before we begin to answer these questions, let’s introduce the Host for this article. Actually, it is a HostESS to be introduced: The Fleeing Revelation 12 Woman Constellation…

.

TO WHERE DOES SHE FLEE?

.

WOMAN ROTATES THROUGH THE SEASONS…

.

.

This constellation is made of the Big Dipper, also called the Great Bear constellation (Ursa Major ). However, the ancient pagan cultures did not see this constellation as God intended it to be seen. It is actually a headless woman in childbirth. This is seen in springtime. It is seen in the northern skies. 

.

But as the seasons progress, this travailing woman flips upside down, now appearing as a woman with upraised arms like eagle wings who is running (eventually flying, as shown in sketch on right) into the wilderness (westward). The single star representing her birth-child (Christ) now becomes her head (“Christ is the head of the church.” Ephesians 5:23

star-chart ursa major

.

 

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. 

.

These are star charts from Wikipedia, with sketches of the Woman added.

.

.

.

WHO IS SHE FLEEING FROM?

.Revelation 12 Woman with Eagle Wings

 “…and the dragon stood before the woman…for to devour her child as soon as it was born…And the woman fled into the wilderness, where she hath a place prepared of God…” Revelation 12:5, 6 

woman of Revelation 12 Flees to Wilderness-www.signsofheaven.org

.

Now by winter, this woman has changed into a “fleeing” woman. And if you will go out into the country away from the city lights, you might just see that her upraised arms begin to appear as wings. And she appears to be running, and eventually flying.

.

In this heavenly scenario, this woman is fleeing from the ‘Dragon’ Constellation. However, “fleeing” is mentioned many times in Scripture. It may refer to fleeing from apostate shepherds (John 10:5), brethren or apostate congregations (Psalm 26:5). Or fleeing from sin and (1st Cor. 6:18). Or from enemies.

.

Revelation 12 Dragon w/text

.

It is likewise speaking of fleeing to the mountains (Matthew 24:15-17). And as you can see, the Dragon is spewing water out of his mouth. And it is amazing that this water is always going in the direction of the woman. The water stands for false doctrines. False brethren. Persecutions and temptations. See the article on the Dragon for further insight. Click here…”The Dragon”.

So maybe the best thing to do, is to look at this allegorical Book of Habakkuk from a somewhat analytical vantage point.

THE PROBLEM:

.http://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/commons/3/38/Tissot_Habakkuk.jpg

Now the problem of Habakkuk is that he is totally frustrated and alarmed, as he beholds the wicked coming in like a flood! Yes, Habakkuk is greatly disturbed, because he sees a vision of God raising up the Chaldeans, to completely surround God’s Chosen People, causing them to lose their sense of good judgment.

.

Listen… “The burden which Habakkuk the prophet did see. O LORD, how long shall I cry, and Thou wilt not hear! even cry out unto thee of violence, and Thou wilt not save! Why dost Thou show 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 1:1-4

.

Yes, this is truly a sad situation for God’s people.

BUT GOD RAISED THEM UP!http://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/commons/3/38/Tissot_Habakkuk.jpg

.

But this terrible situation is only made that much more grievous because it is God Himself who raised these pagans up!

.

Listen… “For, lo, I raise up the Chaldeans, that bitter and hasty nation, which shall march through the breadth of the land, to possess the dwellingplaces that are not theirs.” Habakkuk 1:6

.

So Habakkuk is crying out to God, because he doesn’t understand why God has raised up that wicked nation to encompass the righteous, causing wrong judgment to prevail among God’s people.

.

THE SOLUTION

.

So in Chapter 2, The Lord reveals the answer to this dilemma.

.

Listen… “I will stand upon my watch, and set me upon the tower, and will watch to see what Hhttp://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/commons/3/38/Tissot_Habakkuk.jpge will say unto me, and what I shall answer when I am reproved. And the LORD answered me, and said, Write the vision, and make it plain upon tables, that he may run that readeth it. For the vision is yet for an appointed time, but at the end it shall speak, and not lie: though it tarry, wait for it; because it will surely come, it will not tarry.” Habakkuk 2:1-3

.

So Habakkuk here seems to be trembling, as he watches and waits for God to answer him. And the Lord gives the solution to Habakkuk’s dilemma. “RUN!”, says the Lord.

.

But this command to “RUN!” is only given when an individual reader begins to hear Habakkuk’s vision beginning to speak… For the vision is yet for an appointed time, but at the end it shall speak, and not lie” Habakkuk 2:3

.

And though that vision seems to tarry, but at the end it will speak and not lie! And it will only speak at the appointed time! And then, the reader of Habakkuk must run!

THE SAD CONDITION OF GOD’S PEOPLE:

.

http://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/commons/3/38/Tissot_Habakkuk.jpg

In somewhat allegorical language, God then begins to present the sad condition of the Church. Herein is described the apostasy within God’s house.

.

Listen… “Behold, his soul which is lifted up is not upright in him: but the just shall live by His (Christ’s) faith.” Habakkuk 2:4

.

Pride has entered in to God’s house! Yet there are still those who continue to live by Christ’s faith! the just shall live by His faith.”

companys-coming - revised

.

 

Yes, God has a faithful remnant within the Church. And this is the true Church of which God promises, “The gates of Hell shall not prevail” against it! (Matthew 16:18)

.

And yet, Chapter 2 describes this sad condition in the apostate churches: whether pope, prelate, or parishioner, or even you or even me; this speaks of spiritual drunkenness, pride, covetousness, and a greed as big as Hell, which resides in those of us who are willing to trade our soul for the whole world, or any little part thereof (v.5)! 

.

As the reader can see in this not-so-funny cartoon, is a typical Christian, all caught up in the cares and pleasures of this life, not realizing that we have, “lived in pleasure on the earth, and been wanton; (we) have nourished (our) hearts, as in a day of slaughter!”  James 5:5

.

.

.

.

.

MY PROUD, FOOLISH HEART!

.

“Behold, his soul which is lifted up is not upright in him: but the just shall live by His (Christ’s) faith.” Habakkuk 2:4

.

This above verse reveals what the prophet, Habakkuk realized what was the motivation of his own foolish complaint to God: FOOLISH HUMAN PRIDE! And this realization is what we all must be given, in order for the vision of Habakkuk to begin speaking to any one of us!

.

And any supposed child of God must receive the chastening of God, which will humble our proud and stubborn heart, before we can ever truly understand what any portion of the Bible is truly saying! So many of us are puffed up, by our supposed knowledge of God’s Word.

.

And before I can ever receive this fearful message of Habakkuk, God must mercifully break down these iron walls of human pride, which surround and imprison me! Then and only then, can I begin to live by Christ’s faith, instead of my own self-confident knowledge!

.

SATAN, THE KING OF BABYLON

.

http://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/commons/3/38/Tissot_Habakkuk.jpgThe Prophecy of Habakkuk concerns “Chaldeans”, which was another name for “Babylonians”.

.

And so, Habakkuk Chapters 1 & 2 also seems to allude to the King of Babylon, who is in truth, none other than Satan.

.

This concept is revealed in the Prophecy of Isaiah… “…against the king of Babylon, and say…How art thou fallen from heaven, O Lucifer, son of the morning! how art thou cut down to the ground, which didst weaken the nations!” Isaiah 14:4, 12

.

Oh no, Habakkuk doesn’t come right out and say this fact about who the Chaldeans are. But Isaiah here, says it for Habakkuk! And by comparing spiritual things with spiritual, it becomes evident that Satan is the true King of Babylon!

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

Yes, one of the most unpopular and most well-guarded truths is that Lucifer (now entitled: Satan, or, the Devil) is the, “god of this world” 2nd Corinthians 4:4.

.

Satan controls this world, to a great extent. And God has allowed Satan, in these last days to completely surround and infiltrate the Church, via both evil angels, secular men and authorities, as well as apostate church members.

.

And so, what we are now witnessing in the world, is that Satan is closing in on God’s Elect, by reason of nearly every authority, learning institution, high-tech invention, and pulpit in the land! Satan’s infiltration and totalitarian ruler-ship is so complete, that God’s chosen ones, have even been carried away captive into this spiritual Babylon, within our very own hearts!  

.

.

.

JUDGMENT TO COME

.

The rest of this Chapter 2 goes on to describe the sins of which a church-going man (or woman) is willing to commit (or perhaps, this is also speaking of the sins of the entire apostate portion within God’s house, headed up by the King of Babylon, Satan!) And the sins continue, in spite of the fact that those covetous sins will result in causing many others in God’s house, to fall and be cut off (v. 2:8-10).

.

Listen… “Because thou (the apostate portion of the Church, headed up by the King of Babylon, Satan) hast spoiled many nations, all the remnant of the people shall spoil thee; because of men’s blood, and for the violence of the land, of the city, and of all that dwell therein. Woe to him that covets an evil covetousness to his house, that he may set his nest on high, that he may be delivered from the power of evil! Thou hast consulted shame to thy house by cutting off many people, and hast sinned against thy soul.” Habakkuk 2:8-10

.

Here above, is a veiled reference, it seems, to God’s professed people (and their leaders), who have traded their birthright, for a bowl of pottage, so to speak: their eternal heritage, for the things of this present world!

ANTICHRIST’S PUNISHMENT

.

But this chapter 2 also reveals the judgment which is sure to follow the Antichrist rulhttp://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:Burgkmair_whore_babylon_color.jpgers of the apostate multitude in the Church. (Chapter 2, v. 6-17)

.

“Shall not all these take up a parable against him, and a taunting proverb against him, and say, Woe to him that increaseth that which is not his! how long? and to him that ladeth himself with thick clay! Shall they not rise up suddenly that shall bite thee, and awake that shall vex thee, and thou shalt be for booties unto them?” Habakkuk 2:6, 7  

.

But it should not be assumed that Antichrist is only speaking of one individual. Not only Satan and his ministers of counterfeit righteousness, but anyone who is of a worldly spirit is an Antichrist…

.

Listen… “And every spirit that confesseth not that Jesus Christ is come in the flesh is not of God: and this is that [spirit] of antichrist, whereof ye have heard that it should come; and even now already is it in the world…They are of the world: therefore speak they of the world, and the world heareth them.” 1st John 4:3, 5

The Pleiades: Mystery Babylon: Mother of Harlots

.

And so, as this above passage reveals, “Antichrist” is much more than a single individual! Antichrist includes all those who possess a world-loving spirit! And Ephesians 2:2 speaks of, “Wherein in time past 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:”

.

Yes, as this above verse reveals, Satan’s Antichrist spirit is now working in the, “children of disobedience”!

TELEVISION, RADIO AND INTERNET, ETC…

.

“Woe unto him that saith to the wood, Awake; to the dumb stone, Arise, it shall teach! Behold, it is laid over with gold and silver,” Habakkuk 2:19

.

Now the last three verses of Chapter 2, seem to be an allusion to this very day in which we live! Because in former times, it was impossible to make an image that could speak. The idols of yesteryear were powerless to communicate verbally. But Habakkuk’s vision is specifically given for the last hours of this world!

.

And so, in these last days, man has been given the knowledge to invent talking images: television, Internet, and even radio all project talking images which promote this kingdom of Satan. And these images can travel across the world at lightning speed  (they are, “swifter than leopards”: Habakkuk 1:8)

TV indoctrination

.

Now, the reference in Habakkuk 2:19, to these talking/teaching idols being “laid over with silver and gold”, is an allusion to television shows being given a form of godliness, thereby deceiving the hearts of the naive viewers! There seems to be so much morality and humanitarianism on TV/Internet, and yet it is void of God’s Spirit. This is the silver and gold spoken of here in verse 19.

.

Yes, through these media, plus books, magazines and various other media, Satan has been working through the Chaldean (unbelieving) people of this world, and is now able to control the minds of the great masses of humanity, increasing daily throughout the world! And he has infiltrated and paralyzed the Church as well!

.

CHAPTER 3: HABAKKUK’S PRAYER

.

Now in Chapter 3, begins Habakkuk’s prayer…

.Signs Of Heaven - Winter Constellations

Listen… “O LORD, I have heard Thy speech, and was afraid: O LORD, revive Thy work in the midst of the years, in the midst of the years make known; in wrath remember mercy. God came from Teman, and the Holy One from mount Paran. Selah. His glory covered the heavens, and the earth was full of His praise. And His brightness was as the light; He had horns coming out of His hand: and there was the hiding of His power.” Habakkuk 3:2-4

.

Now Habakkuk prays for mercy in the midst of the years! And so, in somewhat allegorical language is Jesus herein described! And also in this description is mentioned the “Signs Of Heaven”.

.

summer w/ark & woman

.

Listen… God came from Teman, and the Holy One from mount Paran. Selah. His glory covered the Heavens” Habakkuk 3:3.

.

In this verse, is a reference to Mt. Sinai (a.k.a., Mount Paran) in which Moses received the Ten Commandments directly from God.

.

And this same reference also mentions that God’s “glory covered the Heavens”.

.

Now isn’t it interesting that the Ark of the Covenant is seen in the Heavens? And so, this verse alludes to the signs which God is now revealing in the Heavens!

.

But more than this, the horns of light were described as coming out of the Savior’s hand! And His brightness was as the light; He had horns coming out of His hand: and there was the hiding of His power.”

.

This horn of Salvation by the self-sacrificing love of Jesus, symbolized by the nail holes in His hands, is the only Good News to the lost souls of this hopelessly dying world! There is no other mercy for this world, and even that is about to end! (see Habakkuk 3:4)

THE CONQUERING LORD OF HOSTS

.

“Thou didst march through the land in indignation, Thou didst thresh the heathen in anger.” Habakkuk 3:12

.

Now, up to the 15th verse of Chapter 3, is described (in veiled language) Michael, the conquering priestly-soldier (see also, Daniel 12:1 & Revelation 12:7)

.

Yes, the eternal priestly God our Savior, will put put on His garments of vengeance (Isaiah 59:17), and “In that day the LORD with His sore and great and strong sword shall punish leviathan the piercing serpent, even leviathan that crooked serpent; and He shall slay the dragon that is in the sea.” Isaiah 27:1

HABAKKUK’S SHAMEhttp://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/commons/3/38/Tissot_Habakkuk.jpg

.

Now at this point, Habakkuk realizes that God is the awesome and majestic conqueror of all evil! And Habakkuk realizes his own wretchedness and that he too was part of the problem…

.

Listen… “When I heard, my belly trembled; my lips quivered at the voice: rottenness entered into my bones, and I trembled in myself, that I might rest in the day of trouble: when He cometh up unto the people, He will invade them with His troops.” Habakkuk 3:16

.

And so, Habakkuk was happy to grovel in the dust, so to speak, in hopes that God will have mercy on his wretched condition. (Habakkuk 3:16)

.

GOD’S CHASTISEMENTS

.

“When I heard, my belly trembled; my lips quivered at the voice: rottenness entered http://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/commons/3/38/Tissot_Habakkuk.jpginto my bones, and I trembled in myself, that I might rest in the day of trouble: when He cometh up unto the people, He will invade them with His troops.” Habakkuk 3:16

.

But this above verse speaks of more than merely groveling. No, the kind of fear described in the above verse, is only experienced when a Believer suffers the chastening of God, and awakes to his own presumptuous sins.

.

Yes, we go merrily on our own way, not aware that there is sin in the camp: the camp of, “my own heart”!

.

And so things come to the point in time when the Lord, in His mercy, must lovingly send severe chastisement into my life. But though God’s punishments really hurt, we must allow such “spankings”, that we might be ultimately purified!http://www.wikigallery.org/wiki/painting_198722/William-Brassey-Hole/The-sorrow-of-king-David

.

And this purification must be accomplished if we will finally be, “hidden from the wrath to come”, in the day when God comes down to punish the earth’s inhabitants.

.

And just like David, when he realized his great sins, so will God’s people grovel in sackcloth & ashes (spiritually, not literally), when our sins are revealed to us, in such a stark and poignant manner! 

.

Yes, Habakkuk realizes that his complaint to God was made out of his ignorance of the glory of God, as seen in the great conquering Hero of all ages: the marvelous Lord of Hosts, Jesus!

.

And Habakkuk also sees that Christ is coming to invade Christendom, to slay the wicked, but also to deliver His Chosen people from the apostate, lukewarm condition of the fallen churches! (Habakkuk 3:16)

.

And Habakkuk knows that he can either repent now and be saved, or he can repent in the Day of Vengeance, when it’s too late to repent!

THE CHURCHES LEFT DESOLATE

.

Now in Habakkuk 3:17 is described in allegorical language, the desolate condition of the churches, as Christ removes His people…

.

Listen… “Although the fig tree shall not blossom, neither shall fruit be in the vines; the labour of the olive shall fail, and the fields shall yield no meat; the flock shall be cut off from the fold, and there shall be no herd in the stalls:” Habakkuk 3:17

.

“Fig tree shall not blossom”, “neither shall fruit be in the vines”, the “labor of the olive shall fail”, and the “fields shall yield no meat”, and the “flock shall be cut off from the fold”, and “no herd in the stall” is obvious metaphorical language, often used in scripture to describe God’s sheep (people) vacating the churches, and the Holy Spirit’s oil being removed, and the resulting lack of the fruit of the Spirit in those churches (Galatians 5:22).

.

Just as in the days of Jeremiah (picture right), this also is the sad and desolate condition which is very evident in today’s church-world! The Word of God does not cause the corporate body of the churches to repent of idolatry. Instead, the churches have mingled the purity of the Word, with the miry clay of the world! And the result is a lukewarm condition, just right for the spreading of the disease of sin throughout the corporate body!

REAPING THE WHIRLWIND

.

Hosea 8:7

companys-coming - revised.

Now, with just a little research on the Internet, it is revealed the apostate condition of the church-world. Incredibly high divorce-rate (and remarriage), incredibly low knowledge/belief of the Bible, very high rate of pornography viewing among God’s professed people. Christian parents and church leaders sending their children to public schooling, and encouraging their young adults to pursue the very same affluence which eventually led to the downfall and ultimate destruction of S-0-D-0-M-A

.

.

Most Christians have totally ignored Paul’s warning… “For we brought nothing into this world, and it is certain we can carry nothing out. And having food and raiment let us be therewith content. But they that will be rich fall into temptation and a snare, and into many foolish and hurtful lusts, which drown men in destruction and perdition….But thou, O man of God, flee these things; and follow after righteousness, godliness, faith, love, patience, meekness.” 1st Timothy 6:7-9, 11

.

And as a result of our rebellion, God has allowed Satan to raise up S-0-D-0-M and Babylon all around us! Yes, God is now judging His people, and we are finally reaping the harvest of our vanities which we have sown, through our love of this present kingdom of selfishness and sin!

.

Listen… “But ye have set at nought all my counsel, and would none of my reproof: I also will laugh at your calamity; I will mock when your fear cometh; When your fear cometh as desolation, and your destruction cometh as a whirlwind; when distress and anguish cometh upon you.” Proverbs 1:25-27.

.

This passage from Proverbs applies very well to we current-day Christians! Our destruction is at hand!

HABAKKUK COMES FULL CIRCLE

http://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/commons/3/38/Tissot_Habakkuk.jpg

.

Listen… “And the LORD answered me, and said, Write the vision, and make it plain upon tables, that he may run that readeth it. For the vision is yet for an appointed time, but at the end it shall speak, and not lie: though it tarry, wait for it; because it will surely come, it will not tarry.” Habakkuk 2:2, 3

.

So now Habakkuk comes full circle. God’s people see the apostate condition of Babylon: the world and the worldly church! It is twice fallen!

.

And the command comes from the lips of Almighty God: “RUN!”

.

FLEE TO THE MOUNTAINS

.

But we just can’t pack up and flee to the literal mountains!  537px-The Prophet Isaiah_(Bible_Card from 1904) wikipedia public domain      

.

And so, why does God fully assure us in the prophecy of Isaiah that… “And there shall be upon every high mountain, and upon every high hill, rivers and streams of waters in the day of the great slaughter, when the towers fall”? Isaiah 30:25.

.

And so, this passage speaks of available water in every mountain, high hill!

.

But what kind of waters is the Prophet speaking of? Literal waters, or spiritual, living waters?

.

The Prophet Isaiah (Bible Card from 1904) – Wikipedia – Public Domain

.

.

.

.

.

LIVING WATERS

.

And so, just what high mountains and high hills are we to take refuge in? And what rivers and streams will we find there?

.

Listen… “In the last day, that great day of the feast, Jesus stood and cried, saying, If any man thirst, let him come unto Me, and drink. He that believeth on Me, as the scripture hath said, out of his belly shall flow rivers of living water. (But this spake He of the Spirit, which they that believe on Him should receive: for the Holy Ghost was not yet given; because that Jesus was not yet glorified.) John 7:37-39

.

So here are the rivers of living waters in which we are to enjoy upon every high mountain and upon every high hill, during the coming crisis.

.

Yes, the bible is a spiritual book, and must be understood spiritually, to make total sense.

TOWERS FALLING ALL AROUND US!

.

“And there shall be upon every high mountain, and upon every high hill, rivers and streams of waters in the day of the great slaughter, when the towers fall.” Isaihttp://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/User:UpstateNYerah 30:25.

.

And so, in this prophecy of Isaiah, it speaks of, the day of the great slaughter, when the towers fall.”

.

Well, as we look around, it is not hard to discern that the towers are now falling! And not just the Twin Towers in New York City!

.

Just look around! Our public schools are beginning to promote sexual deviancy to our children! The television has become an advertisement for the qualities of Satan’s http://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:%22Jesus_in_Jeans%22_-_geograph.org.uk_-_1367680.jpgcharacter! Our courts no longer respect the rule of law! Our government is borrowing and printing money in an apparent financial suicide attempt!

.

Everything around the world is going topsy-turvy, and all this leaves us bewildered as to just what is happening!

.

And if all that ishttp://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:Jesus-in-Jeans-by-Peter-Royle.jpg not a fulfillment of the “towers falling”, just look at the churches and denominations!

.

They are crumbling faster than society! Deviants and spiritualists and money grubbing carpet-baggers are taking over, it seems!

.

Even the so-called conservative churches are greatly concerned with earthly prosperity and hedonistic pleasure-seeking!

COME OUT OF HER, MY PEOPLE”

.

“And I heard another voice from heaven, saying, Come out of her, My people (Mystery Harlot city of Babylon), that ye be not partakers of her sins, and that ye receive not of her plagues.” Revelation 18:4http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:Tissot_The_Flight_of_the_Prisoners.jpg

.

Now here is as good of place as any, to tie in Revelation 18 to Habakkuk’s message, to “RUN”.

.

Yes, this above verse speaks of God’s final call to His people to, “Come out of her, My people!”.

.

And this harlot woman, is the same harlot woman, spoken of throughout the Bible: the apostate portion of God’s house! Whether the Bible speaks of, “Five Foolish Virgins”, or Jezebel (Revelation), or Hagar (Galatians 4:), or the many other references, it nevertheless speaks of the very same truth: the apostate parishioners  within the Church.

.

Now whether we like it or not, Satan has made sure that his people control the local congregations. And since Christians are not commanded to fight for control of those congregations, we must do what Christians have always had to do: leave!

THE TWO CONGREGATIONS

“I have not sat with vain persons, neither will I go in with dissemblers. I have hated the congregation of evildoers; and will not sit with the wicked.” Psalm 26:4, 5.

.

.

The above passage speaks of the “Congregation of Evildoers”. Actually, the Bible speaks of two congregations: The Congregation of the Wicked (picture lower right) & the Congregation of the Righteous (left).

.

Just listen… “Therefore the ungodly shall not stand in the judgment, nor sinners in the congregation of the righteous.” Psalms 1:5.

.

Just listen to this Messianic Psalm with the prophetic words of Jesus on the Cross… “For dogs have compassed Me: the assembly of the wicked have enclosed Me: they pierced My hands and My feet.” Psalm 22:16.

.

So Jesus defined here, just who it was who crucified Him: “The Assembly of the Wicked”. It was His very own professed people.

.

Listen to David, I have hated the congregation of evil doers; and will not sit with the wicked.” Psa_26:5.

.

By the way, it is interesting to note, that this word, “congregation” in this verse, is the Hebrew word that is translated “church” in the New Testament.

.

PAUL SPEAKS OF 2 JERUSALEMS

.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:PaulT.jpgSo now we come to the New Testament. And Paul makes the most incredible and bold comparison of Abraham’s wife Sarah and her handmaid, Hagar to the Old and New Covenants! Paul really lays all out for us to see, comparing Sarah to the Church-Faithful, and Hagar to the Church-Apostate. Just listen carefully to the below passage…

.

“Which things (Sarah & Hagar) are an allegory: for these are the two covenants; the one from the mount Sinai, which gendereth to bondage, which is Hagar. For this Hagar is mount Sinai in Arabia, and answers to Jerusalem which now is, and is in bondage with her children. But Jerusalem which is above is free, which is the mother of us all.” Galatians 4:24-26

.

This is the great recurring theme in Scripture: two women, a virtuous woman and an adulterous, whorish woman. This above passage from Galatians really nails down a great concept: that Scripture presents literal historical events which God orchestrated, in order to present a spiritual concept.

.

Paul correctly interpreted the story of Abraham, Sarah and Hagar and their children as a picture of the Church, both the apostate portion and the True Worshippers of God.

“A TIME TO EMBRACE, AND…

.

A TIME TO REFRAIN FROM EMBRACING”

Ecclesiastes 3:5

.

“Not forsaking the assembling of ourselves together, as the manner of some is; but exhorting one another: and so much the more, as ye see the day approaching.” Heb_10:25.

.

There are many who read this above verse, and conclude that there will never come a time to separate from our local congregations. As it it says, “Not forsaking the assembling of ourselves together…”

.

So what did this mean to us in relation to our assembling together?

.Constellation- Woman of Revelation 12 flees to the mountains Mark 13:14

Let’s see what Scripture says… “Not forsaking the assembling of ourselves together, as the manner of some is; but exhorting one another: and so much the more, as ye see the day approaching.” Heb_10:25.

.

As we read this passage carefully, we see that we were not to forsake the assembling together…but exhorting…”and so much the more as WE SEE THE DAY APPROACHING”.

.

As we see WHAT day approaching?

.

.

“DAY OF THE LORD” WAS THE “DAY APPROACHING”

.

The day we were to see approaching was that Day in which we were to flee to the mountains. That was the day which was approaching: the, Day of the Lord”; “The Time of Jacob’s Trouble”; “Armageddon”.

.

Constellation- Woman of Revelation 12 flees to the mountains Mark 13:14

.

Listen to Scripture… flee out of the midst of Jerusalem…for evil appears out of the north, and great destruction….I have likened the daughter of Zion to a comely and delicate woman.” Jeremiah 6:1,2.

.

Notice here that God compares the Daughter of Zion to a delicate and beautiful woman. The sketch here below certainly picks up this idea from Jeremiah, of a fleeing woman. Interesting! But the primary reason for presenting the above verse is not to focus on the woman; but to confirm this idea of fleeing Jerusalem (see Galatians 4:22-26, regarding Jerusalem representing the apostate Church). And also to flee from the evil out of the north (Babylon). (For an in-depth examination of Spiritual Babylon, just click here… “Mystery Babylon: Who is this Harlot of Revelation?”)

.

.

.

WHERE DO WE FLEE TO?

.

Now the last two verses is Habakkuk’s praise, as he declares the hiding place in which he runs to… “Yet I will rejoice in the LORD, I will joy in the God of my salvation. The LORD God is my strength, and He will make my feet like hinds’ feet, and He will make me to walk upon mine high places.” Habakkuk 3:18, 19

Constellation- Woman of Revelation 12 flees to the mountains Mark 13:14

.

Yes, the high places spoken of here, is the kingdom of God which dwells within God’s faithful people… “The kingdom of God cometh not with observation: Neither shall they say, Lo here! or, lo there! for, behold, the kingdom of God is within you.” Luke 17:20, 21

.

Yes, here are the high places we must walk upon! These are the mountains we are counseled to flee to!

.

Listen… “Even when we were dead in sins, hath quickened us together with Christ, (by grace ye are saved;) And hath raised us up together, and made us sit together in heavenly places in Christ Jesus:” Ephesians 2:5, 6

.

But there is another aspect to fleeing! Yes, we are to flee to the heavenly Mount Zion, to be priests in His Most Holy Place! But we are also to flee from the wrath to come!

THE REMEDY…FLEE !

http://www.muskegonartmuseum.org/collections-gallery/gallery

.

 

“Come, My people, enter thou into thy chambers, and shut thy doors about thee: hide thyself as it were for a little moment, until the indignation be overpast. For, behold, the LORD cometh out of His place to punish the inhabitants of the earth for their iniquity: the earth also shall disclose her blood, and shall no more cover her slain.” Isaiah 26:20, 21 

.

When God’s people finally come to the point where we realize that we must flee from every temptation (as far and as fast as possible), is when the church will shine most brightly. During the Dark Ages, the Church fled to the literal mountains to hide from the apostate churches of Europe.

.

.

.

VEILED, ALLEGORICAL LANGUAGE

.

But now, in these last days, our only refuge is in a complete and total hiding in our Lord! We must be securely snuggled in His Almighty and Everlasting arms…every moment of every day! For if we dare leave His side for a moment (during this time of trouble coming soon) the enemy will be waiting to devour us, or to do as much damage as they possibly can…

.The Christian's Chambers

“O ye children of Benjamin, gather yourselves to flee out of the midst of Jerusalem, and blow the trumpet in Tekoa, and set up a sign of fire in Bethhaccerem: for evil appeareth out of the north, and great destruction. I have likened the daughter of Zion to a comely and delicate woman.” Jeremiah 6:1, 2.

.

When God’s people realize, that such passages as this, are merely encoded messages, and, “are written for our admonition, upon whom the ends of the world are come.”, then, and only then can God’s people begin to understand the great message which God has written for His Church, in these last days.

.

The Lord is telling us here, in veiled language, that God’s professed people have become soft and weak, in a time of war. God is telling His true Church to flee from this weak and ineffective apostate church-world! (see Galatians 4:21-26)

.

.

SITTING WITH CHRIST IN HEAVEN!

.

Now let’s leave this allegorical scenario, for a moment and begin to explore another spiritual concept.

.

Listen… “If ye then be risen with Christ, seek those things which are above, where Christ sitteth on the right hand of God. Set your affection on things above, not on things on the earth. For ye are dead, and your life is hid with Christ in God. When Christ, who is our life, shall appear, then shall ye also appear with Him in glory. Mortify therefore your members which are upon the earth; fornication, uncleanness, inordinate affection, evil concupiscence, and covetousness, which is idolatry:” Colossians 3:1-5

.

So here it is revealed that God’s people must be seeking the things above, and forsaking the things of the earth. Yes, God’s Elect must begin to crucify our earthly members.

THE SANCTUARY SHALL BE CLEANSED

.

FLEE FROM ENEMIES… “Deliver me, O LORD, from mine enemies: I flee unto Thee to hide me.” Psalms 143:9. This verse explains how to flee from your enemies. Flee to God! Trust Him to hide you! Get lost in His Word! Get lost in prayer! Hide in your prayer closet (figuratively, not literally)! Rest in His almighty arms!

.

We are “the temple of God”. And as co-priests with Christ, we are to walk upon our high places of the heart! We are to cleanse our soul-temple!

.

And so, we are to contemplate through our day, upon God’s Word! We are to pray without ceasing! But we are to likewise shun all ungodly associations as well: the TV, secular radio, and Internet vanities, sports, clubs, unions, time-&-energy-sapping careers, opulence, gluttony, ungodly friendships, Mammon, and every other Spirit-quenching association and endeavor!

.

And so, to “walk upon mine high places”, very concisely put, is to live a separated-from-the-world life, but a very joined-to-Heaven life, at the same time!

.

.

.

.

.

CHRISTIAN WARFARE

.

Now there is an interesting commentary on this idea of “hinds’ feet”, found in 2nd Samuel…

.

Listen… “God is my strength and power: And He makes my way perfect. He makes my feet like hinds’ feet: and sets me upon my high places. He teaches my hands to war; so that a bow of steel is broken by mine arms.” 2nd Samuel 22:33-35

.

This above passage speaks not only of hinds’ feet, but also of making “my way perfect”. But then it speaks of teaching “my hands to war”. So what in the world do these three ideas have to do with each other?

.

The Apostle, Paul clears up this matter in the following passage… “For the weapons of our warfare are not carnal, but mighty through God to the pulling down of strong holds;) Casting down imaginations, and every high thing that exalteth itself against the knowledge of God, and bringing into captivity every thought to the obedience of Christ;” 2nd Corinthians 10:4, 5

.

So now we see just what kind of warfare that the Bible wants us to fight: the cleansing of our own heart! Tohttp://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:USMC-06831.jpg bring every thought into captivity, to the obedience of Christ, is the Christian warfare that we must engage in.

.

In other places, it is referred to “crucifying the ‘old man'”. Romans 6:6 & Ephesians 4:22, 23

.

In 1st John 3:3, we are counseled… “And every man that hath this hope in Him (Christ), purifieth himself, even as He is pure.”

.

And so, we have further confirmation that “hinds’ feet on my high places”, has everything to do with purifying the sanctuary of your heart and my heart. This is the Christian battle that we must fight and the war we must win!

GOD ALLOWS CHALDEANS

.

TO CHASE HIS PEOPLE OUT OF THE WORLD!

.

And so, one of the great reasons why God has allowed the Chaldeans to surround us, is to give us a wake-up call! Yes, in His great mercy, God has raised up “that wicked city of destruction” (and spiritual Babylon) all around us, in attempt to send the same alarm that he sent to Lot, the night before “that wicked city of destruction”

.

Listen… “And their dead bodies shall lie in the street of the great city, which spiritually is called “that wicked city of destruction” and Egypt, where also our Lord was crucified.” Revelation 11:8

.

So in this above verse from Revelation, God is comparing His city to “that wicked city of destruction” & Egypt: licentiousness and opulence and pride and unbelief (Egypt) are the great sins of the churches today! And the apostate condition of the churches grows more and more pronounced with each passing day! And needless to say, the condition of the world today, is totally intolerable, as well!

.

And so, God is waiting for us to flee, just as he waited for Lot and his family to flee from the wrath to come on “that wicked city of destruction”, that fateful morning! And just as Lot tarried, so too, God’s people must quit our tarrying, and flee to the mountain!

.

WHAT ABOUT THE CHILDREN?

.

But what about our children? How are we to bring our loved ones along with us?

.http://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:Ebenezer_Newman_Downard_Morning_prayer_1860-61.jpg

Listen… “Blessed is every one that feareth the LORD; that walketh in his ways. For thou shalt eat the labour of thine hands: happy shalt thou be, and it shall be well with thee. Thy wife shall be as a fruitful vine by the sides of thine house: thy children like olive plants round about thy table. Behold, that thus shall the man be blessed that feareth the LORD. Yea, thou shalt see thy children’s children and peace upon Israel.” Psalm 128:1-4, 6

.

And so, as this little Psalm reveals, it is by walking even as Christ walked, becoming fully transformed into His likeness, that our children and even our children’s children shall ultimately be blessed with Salvation! And our spouse too!

HIDE IN HIS HEAVENLY PAVILION

 

.

And so, it is high time that we take Habakkuk seriously, and begin to run that Christian race before us! And as Isaiah counsels, we need to cast away our idols of silver and gold, and flee to the Rock of Ages, and hide ourselves in the secret place of His pavilion! And as Paul says, we must mortify our earthly body, and become a spiritual being, sitting with Christ in the Heavenly Most Holy Place!

.

After all, God has chosen us to be a Royal Priesthood! So as priests of God, where else would we possibly want to be, except together with Jesus in His holy temple?

“O SPARE ME!”

.

And as God’s people see their children being swept away in the tidal wave of wickedness, they cry out to God…David's sorrow - Wikigallery - Public Domain “Deliver me from all my transgressions: make me not the reproach of the foolish…Remove Thy stroke away from me: I am consumed by the blow of Thine hand. When Thou with rebukes dost correct man for iniquity, Thou makest his beauty to consume away like a moth: surely every man is vanity. Selah. Hear my prayer, O LORD, and give ear unto my cry; hold not Thy peace at my tears: for I am a stranger with Thee, and a sojourner, as all my fathers were. O spare me, that I may recover strength, before I go hence, and be no more.” Psalm 39:11-13

.

This Psalm of David is a prayer that we lukewarm Christians can all pray in these last hours of time!

.

We and our children need deliverance, just as Lot and his family needed deliverance from the wickedness which rose up all around them!

THE HILLS OUR REFUGE?

.http://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/commons/3/38/Tissot_Habakkuk.jpg

.

It is hopefully seen that Habakkuk’s prophecy is for the Church, God’s Elect, both Jews and Gentiles alike! And since the Bible is a spiritual allegorical book (contrary to popular opinion), these prophecies must be spiritually discerned, comparing spiritual things with spiritual, line upon line, and here a little, and there a little! That’s right! Nothing short of a searching through the Scriptures, will uncover what Bible prophecy is truly saying! Newspapers, history books are of no value, when trying to interpret Bible prophecy!

.

And so, Habakkuk speaks of spiritual ideas, spread upon a canvas of earthly types and shadows. Yes, God’s people are to flee from Satan’s armies!

A GREAT SIGN IN HEAVEN!

.Revelation 12 Woman & The Two Gates

And so, God has placed a great sign in the heavens! The Revelation 12 Woman Constellation, as she flees from the Dragon, and flees to the Narrow Gate Stars, is a sign for God’s people to do the same!

.

These are the very same signs which Habakkuk did see in his vision, it seems! And so, Habakkuk’s vision (one might say), are written on the tablets of the sky, the summer tablet and the winter tablet…

.

“Write the vision, and make it plain upon tables, that he may run that readeth it….”

THE UPWARD PATHWAY

.

TO THE CELESTIAL CITY OF GOD!

.

Constellation- Woman of Revelation 12 flees to the mountains Mark 13:14

.

And though we are to flee, yet we still must remain and work and provide for our family’s happiness, in this Babylonish world. Yet, in our own holy temple, the Lord will begin to work a miraculous work, as He renews our heart, causing us to become transformed into the likeness of Jesus!

.

And if the Reader will read the other articles on this website, he or she can learn the direction that we must all go, as we return to the highway to Heaven, known as the Narrow Way! And that Narrow Way will lead us step-by-step out of this dark, hopeless world, as we climb higher and higher toward that Celestial City of God!

INTO THE NARROW WAY

.

Revelation 12 Woman chooses Narrow Way

.

And so, this starry constellation group which is best seen at the end of Winter, in the western night-sky, is the closing of the Gospel Story, as far as this world is concerned. The Revelation 12 Woman leans forward and begins to fly. But she is now seen heading in the direction of the Narrow Way Stars.

.

Yes, this frightful message of Habakkuk ends on a joyful note! And all these metaphors end up together in a single message. To go into the Narrow Way is where Jesus is taking His Church. And to, “walk upon mine high places” speaks of sitting together with Christ, “in heavenly places”. Ephesians 2:6.

.

And so, God is bringing His Church (no, not denominations) to the point where we finally understand that victory can only be achieved when we become willing to cast away all our earthly idols, and receive the fulness of Christ. 

.

This is the ultimate message of Habakkuk! And this is the ultimate message of all the other books of the Bible. But this is not going to be accomplished by some group effort. No, this will only be accomplished one-by-one, when the Christian individually hides his or her self in Christ.

In this busy work-a-day world, there are many very interesting things which can occupy one’s time and energy: hobbies, and careers, and entertainments and worries, and habits, to name just a few.

.

But as the child of God devotes his or her life to God, there should be a jealous guarding of one’s own heart… “Keep thy heart with all diligence; for out of it are the issues of life.” Proverbs 4:23.

.

The Christian wants nothing to get in the way of running that Christian Race.

“AND WHEN YE SEE THESE THINGS…

But having said this, there is one hobby which every ‘Noble Berean’ may take up, which only compliments the pursuit of the heavenly Prize.

.http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:Astronomy_Amateur_3_V2.jpg

Yes, Signs Of Heaven becomes a wonderfully rewarding hobby which, unlike many less meaningful hobbies, pays off with rich, heavenly rewards. Everlasting rewards!

.

And unlike these people in this photo with equipment, all you need is fairly good vision, and a dark, starry night.

.

And once a person really gets to know these heavenly messengers, it will become very apparent that the message connected with these signs is truly a message to be heeded.

.

Thus will the Christian be able to share this message with others. And there are perhaps many nuances and hidden biblical truths to these signs which have yet to be discovered.

FIRST FIND ORION & 7 STARS

.

The very first step in finding these many constellations, should be to find the two main constellations: Orion, and the 7 Stars (aka, The Big Dipper).

.

These two constellations represent Christ (Orion), and His Church (7 Stars).

.

And just as these are the easiest constellations to find, so too, the first place to begin studying the Bible is the Four Gospels (Matthew, Mark, Luke, John).

.

These four books present Christ and His Church, when He walked the earth, just as Orion and the 7 Stars represent Christ and His Church, as seen up in the heavens.

.

Then, once you are comfortable finding these two constellations, you can begin to locate the next closest constellations, and so on.

ANOTHER HEAVENLY HOBBY: PRAYER-WALKS

.

Now if you’re fortunate enough to be able to go on nightly walks, and you live in an area where you can safely view the stars, here is another Heavenly Hobby which Signs Of Heaven endorses…

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:Starry_Night_at_La_Silla.jpg.

Why not combine star-watching with prayer, as you walk? What a great way to draw closer to God!

.

It cannot be over-stressed, just how wonderful it is to walk under the dark canopy of Heaven, while lifting up one’s heart to our Heavenly Father! There is a closeness to God that cannot be described with words!

.

(And even if you cannot safely do this, you can always do such prayer-walks in the daytime, in a safe place, such as a mall, which is every bit as effective, prayer-wise.

.

And for those who are in confinement, one can view these starry signs on the Internet, or simply listen to Scripture on audio.

.

Either way, all such may enjoy God’s richest blessings at this very time in which God is pouring out all Heaven’s treasures upon anyone willing to forsake all, and follow Jesus!)

THRICE-DAILY PRAYERS

http://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:Marines_at_Prayer_by_Alex_Raymond.jpg.

Now of course, the Bible commands us to, “pray without ceasing“. The Christian is to constantly talk with our Heavenly Father throughout the day.

.

But the Bible also holds up the godly life of Daniel, who, when captive in Babylon, still set aside three times daily, in which he knelt for special prayer.

.

And furthermore the Bible also says… “Evening, and morning, and at noon, will I pray, and cry aloud: and He shall hear my voice.” Psalm 55:17.

.

Even those who are bed-fast or in a prison cell can begin to imitate Daniel in this way. And if one is fortunate to be able to walk, then this thrice-daily prayer regimen can be combined with three walks daily and even nightly.
