A World of Lies:

“It’s a Cuttlefish World!

Yellow Journalism Today!”

CUTTLEFISH: THE ULTIMATE IMPOSTORS!

.

One of the most amazing creatures ever created is the Cuttlefish! Actually, it is not a fish, but a type of mollusk, like a squid, or an octopus.

.

The reason why this creature is so incredible, is that it can just glance at its environment and instantly change its body to imitate that environment.

.

For instance, if it wants to hide from its enemies, or lie-in-wait for its victims, next to a sea-weed, it simply changes its color, spots, and shape to imitate that sea-weed. It can even instantly grow leaf-like appendages to imitate certain sea-weeds!

.

This little creature is nothing short of amazing!

CUTTLEFISH: SYMBOL OF SATAN

.

Well, God has created this little predator to give us further insight into the inner working of the kingdom of Satan.

(As this little 26 second video below shows, the Cuttlefish has the ability to paralyze his potential victims, by using his hypnotizing strobe-light effect! Amazing!)

.

Certainly Satan and his unseen minions love to make themselves invisible! That way, they can work their misery and woe upon this unsuspecting world, without its inhabitants becoming alarmed causing us to rebel against Satan’s kingdom, as we flee to God!

YELLOW JOURNALISM: TODAY’S INDUSTRY-STANDARD

.

It is nothing short of amazing to hear the amount and degree of obfuscation, https://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:Women%27s_March_on_Washington_(32593123745).jpgstory-spiking, and abject lies, etc., in today’s media, when it comes to anything that may have an effect on politically-correct issues.

.

Very often, it’s almost like the major media has gone completely insane, because of their jealousy for their own political ideology! It seems as though they would rather see the entire nation fail, than to lose the slightest political advantage.

.

And as of late, the lying has gotten to the point that it’s become obvious to anyone who hears them!

“…AND EVERY MAN A LIAR”

.

Be that as it may, these political and media leaders don’t seem to care that they are making themselves look disingenuous! They know that their listeners are every bit as zealous for their political party as they are, and will accept those lies even though it’s an obvious deception!

.

But listen to God’s assessment of the human heart…“let God be true, but every man a liar” Romans 3:4

.

Yes, the Bible tells us that every one of us is a liar, in heart.

.

.

.

.

.

.

OUR ‘DESPERATELY WICKED’ HEARTS!

.

And if the above assessment isn’t bad enough, just listen to Jeremiah’s assessment of the human heart condition…“The heart is deceitful above all things, and desperately wicked: who can know it?” Jeremiah 17:9

.

Here is another verse which completely condemns the entire human race.

.

We all have incredibly corrupt and self-deceiving hearts, all of us!

THE SPIRIT OF ANTICHRIST IN US

.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:Castillo_de_Disneyland.jpgAnd the reason why we are so corrupt, is found in the following passage…“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:” Ephesians 2:2

.

Here is the awful truth: the entire unsaved human race is indwelt with the spirit of antichrist…“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.” 1st John 4:3

.

Here it is! There is a spirit of antichrist which rules over this world and indwells all unsaved humans.

ANTICHRISTS: THE UNSAVED PEOPLE OF THE WORLD

.

http://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:Shoppers_on_Dundas,_near_Yonge.jpgNow listen to the above passage continues, which speaks of the “Spirit of truth”, and also, the “spirit of error”“They (antichrists) are of the world: therefore speak they of the world, and the world heareth them. We are of God: he that knoweth God heareth us; he that is not of God heareth not us. Hereby know we the “Spirit of truth”, and the “spirit of error”. 1st John 4:5, 6

.

So, no wonder that so many of the unsaved leaders of our society and today’s media are so willing to lie! They are possessed by the “spirit of error”

THE DEVIL: THE FATHER OF LIES

.

As Jesus said…“Ye are of your father the devil, and the lusts of your father ye will https://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:Trump_protest_San_Diego_-_May_26,_2016.jpgdo…When he speaketh a lie, he speaketh of his own: for he is a liar, and the father of it. And because I tell you the truth, ye believe Me not.” John 8:44, 45

.

Oh wow! This is such a stinging condemnation of us all, it is no wonder that we put Him on the Cross just a short time later, for saying such things!

.

Well, because this world has a giant schism right down the middle between the two major political ideologies, the following prophecy is now coming to fruition…“Every kingdom divided against itself is brought to desolation; and a house divided against a house falleth.” Matthew 12:25 & Luke 11:17

.

Yes, the current strife between the two major ideologies is more or less a hopeless and even a pandemic condition. And it is clear evidence that we have arrived at the end. Satan’s kingdom of this world is dividing, and cannot stand according to this above verse.

“GOOD NEWS FROM A FAR COUNTRY!”

https://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:USMC-081218-M-4507D-001.jpg

Proverbs 25:25

.

But amidst all this horrible news, there nevertheless is some Good News!

.

https://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:Angel_prayers.jpgYes, this is still the day of Salvation! And anyone who desires to escape the awful judgments now coming down upon the world, still has a chance to escape all these things! And those who are sick and tired of being possessed by the spirit of lying and error can cry out for God’s mercy and grace!

.

And should God peradventure give us repentance to the acknowledging of the truth, we will then receive the “Spirit of Truth” in which God’s Holy Spirit will come and make His abode in our hearts!

.

And no more will Satan be our father! But God will now become our Father and give us a love for the truth!

TODAY’S FEATURED HEAVENLY SIGN

THE NARROW GATE STARS

Winter Constellations in West

.

 

This most amazing phenomenon is seen throughout the winter. Although it can be observed most of the winter, it is seen best when it is the western part of the sky, at winter’s end (The end of winter being the final scene of this heavenly Gospel story). Orion , the Dragon, and the Glorious White Horse are beginning to descend into the western horizon (sketch to right is Winter Constellations descending into western horizon. This can actually be seen as early as December, in the pre-dawn hours).

.

And at this point it is apparent that the Fleeing Woman of Revelation 12 Constellation  is veering toward the two bright stars, known as Castor and Pollux (sketch to below left). But the Wide Gate Stars are composed of the two brightest stars of the Auriga Constellation, known as the star, Capella, and the star, Menkalinan. The two stars, Castor and Pollux, make up the concept of the Orion’s Narrow Gate Stars.

Revelation 12 Woman & Orion's Gate & Wide Gate.

This can even be observed into June in the western sky (for a short time just after dark). While a dark night is best for seeing the Woman Constellation, the 4 stars which comprise the Narrow Gate/Wide Gate Stars can be seen even under mediocre conditions. It begins with the Fleeing Woman of Revelation 12 Constellation (AKA Ursa Major) going towards these two doors.

.

The sketch to left shows, the two doors are each composed of two bright stars. The two bright stars that comprise the Narrow Gate are the two brightest stars of the Orion the Reaper’s sickle. The two stars that comprise the ‘Wide Gate’ Stars are the two brightest stars of the wave of water that comes out of the Dragon Constellation’s mouth (for explanation of “Wave of Water”, just click here). The stars that make up the ‘Narrow Gate’ are about half the width of the Wide Gate (see sketch to right).

.

Editor’s note: These sketches on this page are merely sketches. The stars are not in their exact place. However, they are close enough to find them in the night sky. But as with most stars, it takes persistence to finally locate them.

“The Thought Police Have Finally Arrived!”

.

(Also read, “Here Comes The Totalitarians” at page bottom)

.

.

.

.https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:1984first.jpg

In George Orwell’s little book, 1984, he presented a world in which the rulers had succeeded in complete totalitarian control over the masses. There were even “Thought Police” to control the people’s thoughts.

.

.

.

.

THE THOUGHT POLICE HAVE FINALLY ARRIVED!

.

Well, about the only thing that Orwell had miscalculated in this predictive novel was the date for this super-society to come into reality. He was about 35 years off!

https://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:Adelaide_internet_censorship_protest.jpg

.

But that day has finally arrived in which society can (and will) be brought under the control of dictatorial rulers! Orwell’s book should have been titled “2018”!

.

Yes, by means of the modern media, “Big Brother” (aka Satan) can now completely control the masses.

.

And now, these high-tech devices are beginning to blacklist all those who do not hold to the maxims which our society now approves of.

THE NEW LAWS JUST LIKE THE OLD LAWS

 https://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:MarioSavio.JPGFREE SPEECH ENDS WHERE IT BEGAN?

.

It is more than just a little ironically strange and weird that in the very place which became the centerpiece for the modern-day protection of “freedom of speech”, has now become the centerpiece to stamp out “freedom of speech”!

https://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:2017_Berkeley_protests.jpg

.

And perhaps even stranger, it is the very same political party who have long prided themselves as being the arbiters and protectors of that freedom, who are now the very same political party applauding any media outlet or violent mob which squelches the free speech of their political foes!

THE BIBLE FORETOLD OF THIS DAY!

http://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:DDLI.png

.

It’s truly frightening to see all this totalitarianism being ratcheted up so swiftly.

.

But the Bible foretold that this day would finally arrive…“And that no man might buy or sell, save he that had the mark, or the name of the beast, or the number of his name.” Revelation 13:17

.

Now this verse by itself may not give us enough understanding into the current-day phenomenon of censoring.

“Buy the truth, and sell it not!”

.

But this next verse complements the previous verse found in Revelation 13:17.

http://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:DDLI.png.

This complementary verse is found in Proverbs 23:23…“Buy the truth, and sell it not; also wisdom, and instruction, and understanding.”

.

Now from this and other similar verses, it is revealed that “buying and selling” actually has to do with preaching the Gospel of Jesus.

.

And so, the Bible prophesied that the day would come when the true and unvarnished Word of God would be cut off…“And that no man might buy or sell (the truth)” (parenthetical comment by website editor)

THE “GOOD NEWS FROM A FAR COUNTRY”

But the Good News in all this coming totalitarianism, is that God’s Word is still available to read!

.

And most everyone is familiar with this next verse…“And ye shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you free.” John 8:32

.

Yes, the continuing search for knowledge of the Bible and the Bible’s Jesus will make us free indeed!

Many of those who have bought into this unbiblical church-doctrine, “The Pre-Tribulation Rapture”, must be getting very nervous at this point in time!

THE PRE-TRIB RAPTURE: DARBY & SCOFIELD’S FOLLY!

.

https://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:ScofieldCI.jpg

Yes, the master-deceiver, Satan, has successfully lulled the bulk of mainstream Christians into a false sense of security, saying, “Don’t worry, be happy! You’ll be long gone when all Hell breaks loose in the world!”

.

But the Bible prophesy’s about such false teachers…“For when they shall say, Peace and safety; then sudden destruction cometh upon them, as travail upon a woman with child; and they shall not escape.” 1st Thessalonians 5:3 

.

Yes, Satan is working though many false shepherds “to deceive if possible, even the very elect!” Mark 13:22

“O My people, they which lead thee cause thee to err”

Isaiah 3:12

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:The_Late,_Great_Planet_Earth_cover.jpg.

And so, when we see all the crazy stuff going on, and all the frightening paradigm shifts taking place right now in society, this must make a lot of sincere church-goers sit up and nervously ask the question…“Am I really gonna get raptured out of here, before ‘all Hell’ breaks loose? Or have I been deceived by my teachers, because it sure looks like ‘all Hell’ is already beginning to break out!?”

.

God has warned us that the deceptions would be so close to truth, that Satan would, “if possible, deceive even the very Elect!” (see Matthew 24:24 & Mark 13:22)

Habakkuk 1:9

.

Yes, it appears as if Satan and his vast armies are now on the march! And it seems as if he is rapidly morphing society into a brand new totalitarian world-system!

.

Multitudes are gnashing on their teeth against anyone else who opposes their totalitarian ideals about what they want this society to morph into. And their angry rhetoric is getting louder. And a few of them are even beginning to physically assault those who stand in their way and assault those who protest against their fascist-like ideals.

“And judgment is turned away backward”

Isaiah 59:14

https://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:Not-so-blindfolded_05.svg

.

And even in our court system, some activist judges are turning a blind eye to truth and justice, handing down wrong decisions, according to their own personal social/political biases.

.

And the following verse literally foretold of this very day of unjust laws…“And judgment is turned away backward, and justice standeth afar off: for truth is fallen in the street, and equity cannot enter…” Isaiah 59:14

.

Yes, less and less are Christians able to depend on today’s court system to render them justice: society is becoming more and more  bigoted and biased against all those who oppose the current-day so-called political/social correctness!

“And that no man might buy or sell, save he that had the mark…”

.

And even the private business giants are beginning to capitulate to this growing totalitarianism, realizing that they must “get on board” or suffer the consequences!

.

And so in order to appease the loud totalitarian voices, many banks and corporations are now beginning to cut off the ability for certain dissenters to buy or sell.

“…that bitter…nation, which shall march through the breadth of the land”

Habakkuk 1:6

https://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:Antifa_@_Trump_in_Phoenix_8-22-17.jpgIt’s frightening and unbelievable to behold the growing movement in which a great portion of the secular society and their leadership are calling for the silencing of all those who hold to different beliefs and values! And it’s even more remarkable that such a large percentage of the general populace are so willing and eager to stamp out freedom of speech!

.

Just listen to their drumbeats as they get louder and more hateful and increasingly militant against their supposed political and religious enemies!

.

It makes us very nervous when we hear protesters chant their anti-Christian mantra…“BRING BACK THE LIONS! BRING BACK THE LIONS!”

.

Revelation, Chapter 13 long foretold that this end-time totalitarian takeover would eventually happen…“And he (the false Prophet) causeth all, both small and great, rich and poor, free and bond, to receive a mark in their right hand, or in their foreheads: And that no man might buy or sell, save he that had the mark, or the name of the beast, or the number of his name.” Revelation 13:16, 17

.

This above passage speaks of a totalitarian society in which “no man might buy or sell, unless he has the mark, or the name of the Beast, or the number of his name”.

.

Well, it looks as if that day is just over the horizon, or perhaps has already begun!

.

ABOVE PICTURE: Mark of the beast – pub. dom. – Wikipedia

.

.

.

.

.

“Buy the truth, and sell it not”

Proverbs 23:23

.

Now. let it be stated, that many Bible teachers and students have held to the belief that “buying and selling” has to do with the cutting off of all preaching of the true Gospel of Jesus Christ.

.

But many more believe that this passage refers to the actual inability to purchase or sell food, clothing, housing, etc…

.

The fact is, both schools of thought are probably correct. In other words, the true Gospel will probably be censored in the near future. But also, those Christians who stand firm against the wiles of the Devil, will find it all but impossible to buy or sell in the market place.

.

.

.

.

.

“Blow ye the trumpet…for the day of the LORD cometh, for it is nigh at hand;”

Joel 2:1

.

Well, the Good News is, there is still time to prepare for this coming tempest. And there is still time to preach the true Gospel, warning the public to “flee from the wrath to come!” Matthew 3:7 & Luke 3:7

.

Yes, those who still have “an ear to hear”, should pray for Divine Wisdom to know how best to sound “the trumpet, the alarm of war”. Jeremiah 4:19
