ROCK OF GILBRALTAR FINALLY TUMBLES

.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:Nat_King_Cole_(Gottlieb_01511).jpg

A very talented singer once sang about this famous Rock of Gibraltar. Just listen…

.

“In time the Rockies may crumble, Gibraltar may tumble. They’re only made of clay, but our love is here to stay”.

.

These words would be very true, were it not for the words,“may tumble”. Because there’s nothing “maybe” about it!

.

It’s a sure thing that Gibraltar is going to tumble!

OUR LOVE IS NOT HERE TO STAY!

.

But also, the words, “Our love is here to stay”, is a very questionable statement as well.

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

Oh it would be a nice sentiment, if only it were true! But even if a married couple stays together (and the odds of that happening are about 50%), then eventually, time takes them both away in death. 

.

And the Bible plainly tells us…“For the living know that they shall die: but the dead know not any thing…Also their love, and their hatred, and their envy, is now perished; neither have they any more a portion for ever in any thing that is done under the sun.” Ecclesiastes 9:5, 6.

.

Yes, this passage plainly declares that even “Love” is going to perish…forever!

Well, perhaps that’s an overstatement.https://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:Blue_exclamation_mark.svg

.

Because if one is properly invested, then even one’s love will survive.

.

Let’s explain…

CASTLES MADE OF SAND?

.

“Whereas ye know not what shall be on the morrow. For what is your life? It is even a vapor, that appears for a little time, and then vanishes away.” James 4:14

.

Life is so fragile. Even if a person achieves some measure of financial or marital success for a few years, all it takes is some unforeseen tragedy to cause his bubble to burst, and make his (or her) life come totally unraveled.

.

Listen… “And every one that hears these sayings of mine, and does them not, shall be likened unto a foolish man, which built his house upon the sand: And the rain descended, and the floods came, and the winds blew, and beat upon that house; and it fell: and great was the fall of it.” Matthew 7:26, 27.

.

The Bible tells us that there is one and only one firm foundation on which a man must build his life. All else is merely “sinking sand” as that old song goes.

THE PRUDENTIAL ROCK (OF AGES)

.

So, what’s the solution?

.

To be properly invested, of course! That’s the solution!

.

You see, there is a financial company which uses the famous Rock of Gibraltar as itshttp://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:Prudential_advert_1909.jpg symbol. “Invest In The Rock. The Prudential Rock” is their motto, suggesting that their company is as solid as the Rock of Gibraltar. And, well, they have been around an awful long time!

.

Now the word, “prudential”, simply means, “prudent”, or “wise”. So perhaps they are a very prudent, or wise investment…as far as this world goes.

.

But if a person really wants to make a prudent investment, there is a Rock which will be standing long after the Rock of Gibraltar crumbles. This Rock, of course is the “Prudential Rock of Ages”.

PAYS LO-O-O-O-NG TERM DIVIDENDS!

Bank of Heaven

.

But those who are fully invested in that Prudential Rock of Ages will receive long-term dividends. REALLY, REALLY LONG-TERM DIVIDENDS!!! Like, FOREVER dividends!!!

.

Just listen to Jesus… “Therefore whosoever hears these sayings of mine, and does them, I will liken him unto a wise man, which built his house upon a Rock: And the rain descended, and the floods came, and the winds blew, and beat upon that house; and it fell not: for it was founded upon a Rock.” Matthew 7:24, 25

GIBRALTAR WON’T BE THE ONLY ROCK TUMBLING!

http://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:Gibraltar_(1).jpg.

Yes, these pretty lyrics, “Gibraltar may tumble”, would be very true, were it not for the words, “MAY tumble”.

.

No, there’s no maybe’s about it! Because it’s an absolutely, guaranteed, 100%, sure thing, that Gibraltar is going to tumble! Just listen…

.

“And the heaven departed as a scroll when it is rolled together; and every mountain and island were moved out of their places…and every…man…said to the mountains and rocks, Fall on us, and hide us…For the great day of His wrath is come…” Revelation 6:14-17.

THIS WORLD: A VERY SHAKY INVESTMENT AT BEST!

.

Yes, that Great Day of the Lord is close at hand, when all those things we thought were solid and sure, will come tumbling down, just as this old painting below shows.

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

.

But for those who set their love on Jesus, and invest their life in the Rock of Ages, these following lyrics will very much be true…

.

“In time the Rockies may WILL crumble, Gibraltar may WILL tumble. They’re only made of clay, but our love (Jesus’ love) is here to stay”.

.

The Bible puts it somewhat differently… “And the world passes away, and the lust thereof: but he that does the will of God abides for ever.” 1st John 2:17.

.

So as this verse points out, the ultimate life insurance plan and prudent investment is to be found doing the will of God on that great and terrible Day of the Lord, which is near to come, by the way.

THE FLOWER OF THE FIELD CONSTELLATION

.

This is perhaps one of the most amazing constellations that God has created! It truly looks like a flower, and appears to be blowing in the direction of westward. But as autumn draws near, this constellation appears to bow itself down, just like the flowers of Earth bow down, at the summer’s end.

.

And these are not merely obscure stars! No! These are among the biggest and brightest stars in the night heavens!

Two Turtledoves-Flower of the Field- Cross/Scepter Constellations

.

The Two Turtle-Doves Constellation is also known as Sagittarius .

.

The Flower of the Field is commonly known as Scorpio .

.

But there is another obvious aspect to this constellation group. Notice that the birds are flying in the same direction as the flower is bending; it is as if the east wind is blowing these heavenly messengers…

.

“The wind blows where it desires, and you hear the sound thereof, but canst not tell whence it comes, and where it goes: so is every one that is born of the Spirit. John 3:8.

.

So here is another incredible Bible concept, written in the heavens! And God has spoken of these signs! Listen… “For ever, O LORD, Thy Word is settled in heaven.” Psalm 119:89

.

THE ZODIAC CONSTELLATION NAMES

By the way, 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 must be given, solely for the purpose of locating them on star-charts.

.

.

.

.

.

WHY IS THIS FLOWER POINTING UPWARD?

.

To the right is a star-chart from Wikipedia. The editor of this site has sketched in the Flower of the Field Constellation on this constellation commonly referred to as the Scorpio Constellation (plus a few other close-by bright stars).

flower of the field constellation (fixed)

.

Do you see the long blade of grass growing from the base of the Flower of the Field? This grass blade is made of the two highest stars of the Lupus Constellation, and the two lowest stars of the Libra Constellation.

.

As this Wikipedia star-chart shows, the flower appears to be pointing to Arcturus and the Revelation 12 Woman (shown in sketch below). Arcturus represents Jesus, as He leads His sons (and daughters) on a spiritual journey up a heavenward pathway, as is written… “Canst you bring forth Mazzaroth in his season? or can you guide Arcturus with his sons?” Job 38:32.
