“And the third angel followed them, saying with a loud voice, If any man worship the beast and his image, and receive his mark in his forehead, or in his hand, The same shall drink of the wine of the wrath of God, which is poured out without mixture into the cup of his indignation; and he shall be tormented with fire and brimstone in the presence of the holy angels, and in the presence of the Lamb:” Revelation 14:9, 10

REVELATION TO HAVE A DRAMATIC FINALE

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

.

Though Revelation has been a book for Christians at any and every time, the Book of Revelation will have a  dramatic fulfillment in these last days. It does appear that there will be a Grand Finale to this great conflict of the ages between Michael and the Dragon.

.

And though we must not forget the glorious but bloody history of the Church through the Dark Ages, we must also remember that the day is approaching, in which there will be a trial by fire for all those living on the earth: Judgment Day. Armageddon. The time of Jacob’s trouble. The Day of the Lord.

THE TORMENT TO COMEhttps://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:Christianandapollyon.jpg

Now, we must not get the idea that the days ahead will be business as usual.

.

Oh yes, for the people of the world, it may be business as usual. But for those Christians who have not yet overcome the world, the Day of Judgment will be intense and fiery!

.

God will allow Satan to torment us with such fierce cruelty, that we will eventually cry out, “My God, my God, why hast Thou forsaken me?”

A LIVING NIGHTMARE!

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:Capricho_43,_El_sue%C3%B1o_de_la_raz%C3%B3n_produce_monstruos.jpg

.

Yes, the days ahead will intensify beyond anything that you can now imagine, or words can describe!

.

At times it will seem like a living nightmare! Satan and his evil angels will come at Christians with every possible weapon in their vast arsenal! Family and friends and strangers alike will assail the Christian to the point that it will seem that they are merely devils in human bodies!

.

And when they lie down, Satan will attack them with terrifying dreams…“When I say, My bed shall comfort me…Then Thou scarest me with dreams, and terrifiest me through visions: So that my soul chooses strangling, and death rather than my life.” Job 7:13-15

THE TERRORS OF JUDGMENT DAY!

The_Scream-Wikipedia

.

The entire world will turn against God’s faithful remnant until they realize that their only hope is to cast all their trust upon God alone! They will have no earthly support!

.

This infamous painting by Munch is a very appropriate depiction of Judgment Day, because it portrays a man in stark terror, while the people all around him have no cognizance of his torment! For them it is business as usual. For him it is being, “tormented by fire and brimstone and no rest, day nor night!”

“I SHALL COME FORTH AS GOLD”

.

But we must not forget that God never punishes for the mere sake of inflicting pain! No, it is God’s will that His people become purified as gold which is tried in the fihttps://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:Como-investir-ouro.jpgre! And so, the fiery trials before us are orchestrated to purify a people for God, who will learn to walk by faith, and by faith alone!

.

No more will God’s people lean on the arm of flesh. No more will they halt between two opinions. No longer will they be a poor reflection of Christ.

.

Because during the fiery trials just ahead, they will become so well-polished vessels of gold and silver, that the world will begin to see Christ’s image shining out from them!

.

At last they will finally lift up the Cross for all the onlooking world to behold!

THE LAST DAY!http://christimages.org/biblebooks/Book_of_Revelation.htm

.

No longer will it be the Church-defeated! Finally, it will be the Church-victorious!

.

They will be as one Man! They will walk even as Christ walks! God’s Salvation plan will be complete!

.

And at long last, they finally will see their long-awaited and long-hoped-for Savior, Jesus, “coming in the clouds, with great power and glory!”, to redeem them forever from this sin-cursed earth!

TODAY’S FEATURED HEAVENLY SIGN

.

.

.

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!
