“The proof of the pudding is in the eating thereof”

An old societal proverb

It’s pretty scary out there right now, isn’t it?

.

The world, that is….it’s pretty frightening what’s going on out there in the world, wouldn’t you agree?

.

Everything seems to be coming apart at the seams right now!

Just a quick look around is all it takes to realize that things are falling apart!

For instance, just look at our court systems!

The rule of law has been replaced with partisan politics and political correctness!

“GOD BE TRUE & EVERY MAN A LIAR”

The news agencies have become so biased in their reporting, that we really need to apologize to William R. Hearst for frowning on him as the ultimate, “yellow Journalist”!

.

Yes, “yellow journalism” has now become the industry-standard within today’s journalistic media community!

SOCIETAL MADNESS?http://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:ISIL_Execution_of_man_September_2014.jpg

And who would have ever thought that the very nations which once championed the Christian Reformation, would now be inviting an anti-Christian, rogue-religion to come in and take control?

FINANCIAL SUICIDE

And citizens are sitting by while corrupt and/or weak politicians are bringing these western societies down into financial suicide?

SODOM ALL OVER AGAIN!http://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:Genesis19-17.jpg

And who would have thought that those same nations are now beginning to allow public nudity, sodomy, bestiality, and a host of other abominations, corrupting the minds and consciences of the citizenry, and their children, and ultimately bringing these nations under the judgment of Heaven?

WORLD’S PILLARS NOW CRUMBLING

.

Well, this is just the short-list of how our societies are beginning to crumble.

.

Suffice to say, it appears as if the very pillars of this world are now being toppled as surely as Samson toppled those infamous pillars of the Philistines.

WHAT’S GOING ON!?

.Burning Man - 2013 -Chapel - Wikimedia - Creative Commons License

And so, many concerned citizens are asking the question, “Why is our world failing?

.

Why are our societies beginning to fall apart?

.

And why would a loving God just sit back while all these things are going on?

.

And what can we do to stop all this?”

“THE WORLD PASSETH AWAY!”

1st John 2:17http://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:NOMG01ThankGodForSatan.jpg

.

What we must take into account is that the Bible reveals that mankind’s various attempts to live independent of Heaven’s government are all destined to fail.

.

After all, if our rebellion against the Bible became a huge success, then God would have to apologize and step aside to let us rule the universe, wouldn’t He?

OUR CROOKED WAYS CANNOT BE STRAIGHTENED

.

 

Listen…“I have seen all the works that are done under the sun; and, behold, all is vanity and vexation of spirit. That which is crooked cannot be made straight: and that which is wanting cannot be numbered.” Ecclesiastes 1:14, 15

.

As the Wise Man explains here, man’s crooked ways will never bring success. Nor will our hollow ideologies ever become the path to victorious living.

.

All man’s works will ultimately be discovered to be vanity (useless), says the Wise Man!

“JUDGMENT COMETH & THAT RIGHT SOON!”

poster in warden’s office in “Shawshank Redemption” movie. not from the Bible. Actual quote is, “God shall help her, and that right early.” Psalm 46:5

.

But there comes a time for man’s purposes and inventions to finally manifest themselves for what they really are: a big gigantic failure!

.

This is one reason why God has opened the floodgates of knowledge through the last century. God is allowing mankind to make our best attempt at succeeding without Him.

.

The world has been literally flooded with every conceivable device and invention, designed to allow us every advantage to attempt to make a success of this our rebellion.

EXPERIMENT IN SIN

.

And God has permitted us to experiment with various ideologies and governments to see if there might be some successful form of thought or government.

GOD HAS ALLOWED US TO TRY THEM OUThttp://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:Karl_Marx_001.jpg

.

But one-by-one, all these ideologies eventually manifest themselves to be abject and utter failures.

.

Whether it be atheism and communism, or socialism, or some religion or false gospel, God has allowed us to try them out to see if they might possibly work out.

MUD PIE OF OUR OWN MAKING!

.

But they won’t work out!

.

They are all destined to fail by their own innate inadequacy.https://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:Thackery_musium_040928-12.JPG And when they do finally fail, only then will mankind realize that Heaven’s government is the only way to true and lasting peace and victorious living.

.

It’s like the old adage, “The proof of the pudding is in the eating thereof!” And for the past millenniums, God has purposely allowed us to try out and experiment with Lucifer’s government of selfishness, for that very purpose! 

.

That is, we are finally beginning to taste the mud pudding of our own making!

.

We are now finally eating the fruit of our own ways.

THE GOOD NEWS!

.

But the Good News in all this is that there is patient and forgiving One who is calling tohttps://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:Christianity-Jesus_Christ_Died_for_your_Sin.jpg each and every stubborn rebel in this fallen and hopeless world.

.

And He holds out His hands and lovingly calls out…“Come unto Me, all ye that labour and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest. Take My yoke upon you, and learn of Me; for I am meek and lowly in heart: and ye shall find rest unto your souls. For My yoke is easy, and My burden is light.” Matthew 11:28-30

.

Yes, in the midst of all mankind’s continuing rebellion against Heaven, there is one here and one there who will finally reach the point of utter discouragement with all this world’s madness and confusion.

ENTERING THE PROMISED LAND

.

And these pilgrim’s will cross over the bridge from death to life, only to enter into the true Promised Land that will go on forever!

.

And all those who do enter into that Land will never more question the ways of Heaven.

.

Because they will only have to look back and remember how terrible and horrible and hopeless was this planet of selfishness in which we once lived in rebellion against God.

FLOWER OF THE FIELD IN HEAVEN

.

.

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

.

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. These are among the biggest and brightest stars in the night heavens.

.

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

.

The Flower of the Field is also 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 (the) heaven(s).” 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?

flower of the field constellation (fixed)

.

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