Television and The Image That Speaks, Part 2: “The Iron Furnace of Hate Television”

To read Part 1, click here…October 27th (Television and the Image that Speaks)

“Thus saith the LORD God of Israel…

I brought them forth

out of the land of Egypt, from the iron furnace,

saying, Obey My voice, and do them,

according to all which I command you:

so shall ye be My people, and I will be your God”

Jeremiah 11:3, 4

When God brought the children of Israel out of Egypt, He gave Egypt a peculiar name, “The Iron Furnace”.

.

Now why in the world would God call Egypt, “The Iron Furnace”?

FIERY FURNACE OF BABYLON

.

Well the first thing that comes to mind is that fiery furnace which God’s three Hebrews were cast into, as recorded in the Book of Daniel… “That at what time ye hear the sound of…all kinds of music, ye fall down and worship the golden image that Nebuchadnezzar the king hath set up: And whoso falleth not down and worshippeth shall the same hour be cast into the midst of a burning fiery furnace.” Daniel 3:5, 6

.

Here is seen that great golden image of King Nebuchadnezzar, and the punishment for refusing to worship that image: the fiery furnace.

IMAGE OF THE BEAST OF REVELATION 13

.

And this reminds us of Revelation 13 in which the whole world will soon be subject to the punishment of death for refusing to worship The Image of the Beast“And he (the 2nd Beast) had power to give life unto the image of the (1st) beast, that the image of the (1st) beast should both speak, and cause that as many as would not worship the image of the (1st) beast should be killed.” Revelation 13:15

.

So now is seen that all these things have an end-time relevance!

.

Yes, the “Iron Furnace” of Egypt, and the “Fiery Furnace” of Daniel, and the worshipping of the “Image of the Beast” in Revelation all have a great significance in these last days.

.

.

IMAGES COULDN’T SPEAK!

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:Easter_Island_Ahu_(2006).jpg

.

Notice that this above passage from Revelation 13 says concerning the Image of the Beast…“And he (the 2nd Beast) had power to give life unto the image of the (1st) beast, that the image of the (1st) beast should both SPEAK…”

.

Now this 2nd Beast has power to give life to this image and the ability to speak.

.

It is only in our day that an image has the power to have life and the ability to speak! 

.

Yes, the images of old were carved from stone and iron and wood and other metals. But they could not walk, speak, or do good or evil…“but (man-made idols) speak not: they must needs be borne, because they cannot go.” Jeremiah 10:5

TALKING IMAGE NOW HERE!

.

But now in these last days will exist an idol or image that CAN speak and CAN do evil, to the point of causing God’s people to be killed if they refuse to worship that image!

.

Well, isn’t it amazing that such an image already exists?

.

Yes, television can portray living images and speak, and even cause people to be killed!

STIRRING UP HATE!

.

Yes, television can, and does kill!

.

For instance, as of late, the television has been stirring up hatred between the various factions of our society.

.

Just think about the various political, religious, ethnic and social groups in the world which have been stirred up to hate one-another even to the point that countless murders have been committed!

.

It seems that Satan is now stirring up hatred among all these groups (political, religious, ethnic and social).

YELLOW JOURNALISM TODAY!

http://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:ABC_-_Good_Morning_America.jpg

.

And is television just an innocent bystander, merely reporting the facts in its various news commentaries?

.

No, television has been very pro-active in pushing its political, religious, ethnic and social agendas!

.

Television is very biased in the way that news is being reported!

.

Television is the modern-day quintessential, “Yellow Journalism”, slanting its news-stories to bring about the greatest degree of effectiveness, often pitting one group against another on today’s world-stage! 

.

But this is not so much the work of people, but is the concerted effort of, “the god of this world”, Satan!

INTO THE IMAGE OF THE GOD OF THIS WORLD

see 2nd Corinthians 4:4

.

Yes, television is an iron furnace, having the ability to mold and solidify its viewers into the image of Satan.

.

A day-by-day viewing of television will have its imperceptible and yet destructive effects upon its viewership.

.

And the most susceptible are the young!

.

And yet, both young and old alike are now being conformed into the Image of the Beast (Satan’s Antichrist world-system) via today’s high-tech devices!

HABAKKUK SAYS, “RUN!”http://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/commons/3/38/Tissot_Habakkuk.jpg

.

And so, just what is the message for God’s people concerning these things? “RUN!”, as Habakkuk 2:2 warns us!

.

Yes, Habakkuk foretold of this very day…“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 is written in veiled, allegorical language, but speaks of this very day in which the people of the world will surround God’s people to the point that our spiritual sensibilities will be so greatly confused that we are unable to make good spiritual decisions (read this website’s devotional series, Habakkuk Says “Run!”)

EVIL COMMUNICATIONS CORRUPT!

.

If ever there was a time to run from television, it is now!

Otherwise, we may get caught up and infected with all the hatred now being injected into television’s viewing audiences!

.

The Bible warns…“Be not deceived: evil communications corrupt good manners.” 1st Corinthians 15:33

.

Don’t let anyone deceive you!

.

Television is a very powerful influence!

FLEE TO THE MOUNTAINS!

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

.

But the day has fully come when Habakkuk’s vision is now beginning to speak (read the Signs Of Heaven article, “The Fearful Message of Habakkuk”)

.

And so, if we have ears to hear what God is warning, we will flee while there is still time!

.

And “hate-television” might just be the very first thing we consider fleeing from!

TODAY’S FEATURED HEAVENLY SIGN

.

WINTER CONSTELLATIONS

foursome late winter 8/29/11

.

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 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 below left).

(For more information on Orion’s sickle, just click here, “Orion The Reaper”. )

.

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.
