THE DREAM-MAKER of BABYLON

We now live in a cornucopian super-society in which various enviable lifestyles almost seem to be pressed out on some giant assembly-line.

.

Yes, and these mass-produced life-styles are then marketed around the world via television, radio, magazines, Internet, billboards, and whatever other means possible!

.

And with the help of glamorous spokespeople acting as front-men and front-women, Satan, “the god of this world” sells his “product” to the unsuspecting multitudes around the world!

COOKIE-CUTTER LIFESTYLES!

It almost reminds us of some giant cookie-cutter, in which the “god of this world” has a variety of cookie-cutters in which he bakes tray after tray of human gingerbread men and women, each with their own particular lifestyle.

And for the most part,https://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:Vegan_Gingerbread_Men_(4276838993).jpg the vast multitudes around the world are very content to be a part of this kind of world-order.

.

Even little children are brought into this “Babylonian Dream-Machine” culture at a very young age!

JUST EAT AND DRINK!

.

And for the people of this world, this kind of mass, societal cookie-cutter lifestyle world-order is perhaps, OK.

.

After all, for those who refuse Heaven, this world will be all there is. And this world will be the final resting place for any and everyone who goes down to their grave without an “escape plan”, so to speak!

And so, as Brother Paul so aptly put it, “if the dead rise not? let us eat and drink; for to morrow we die.” 1st Corinthians 15:32.

.

Yes, if this world is all there is, then people here might as well just have a good time for the next yew years, before they die forever!

SERVE THE LORD WITH TREMBLING!

But for those who are being saved, Paul says…“serve God acceptably with reverence and godly fear: For our God is a consuming fire.” Hebrews 12:28, 29

.

To be certain, each and every one who calls himself, “Christian”, must hold this wonderful Savior in the most supreme reverence and highest esteem!

THE ORIGINAL PLAN

.

And in stark contrast to these cookie-cutter lifestyles, the Son of God came down from Heaven, to offer His own alternative plan to the citizens of this fallen world. Oh no, it is not really an alternative plan, but Christianity is the original plan.

And the unselfish life of Christ stands in utter contrast to the selfish lifestyles which the world produces! Yes, Christ offers to us a life filled with genuine brotherly love, brotherly kindness, patience, meekness, humility, generosity, long-suffering, faith, temperance, and every other heavenly virtue!

.

And as we behold the life of Christ as revealed in the Bible, we then can behold how superior His life is, when compared to the selfish lifestyles that this world produces!

WHICH PATH WILL I CHOOSE?

.

The Good News is, even though the end of all things is at hand, God in His divine mercy is providing enough time for all those who are fed up with this hopeless and selfish world, to repent and turn back to Heaven’s open arms!

.

And unlike this hopelessly dying world, those who choose the upward pathway to Heaven will be satisfied with everlasting life: in a world in which we will never grow old nor die!

TODAY’S FEATURED HEAVENLY SIGN

 

.

.

.

LOCATING THE DRAGON

.

THE DRAGON of REVELATION 12 CONSTELLATION . The Dragon Constellation can be located by finding Orion in winter months. The Dragon is to Orion’s left, and the Dragon’s mouth is right next to Orion’s shield. This Dragon’s mouth is the V-like constellation The Hyades Cluster, which is the very same constellation that comprises the head of Taurus the Bull. In other words, Hyades is also known as the head of Taurus the Bull. And Hyades is the mouth of this Dragon.

.

The tip of the Dragon’s tail is composed of that star-cluster known as The Pleiades. The Pleiades is actually in the shape of a lion’s furry tassel tip of his tail. The sketch below shows this Pleiades as the tail tip.

.Revelation 12 Dragon w/text

Now with aid of a dark starry night, you may begin to connect this mouth and the tail with a very long body in an oval shape. The front and back legs are very well-defined with stars. The front legs are made partially of Taurus. The back legs and rear fin are made of the Cetus Constellation. But the long oval-shaped body has relatively few stars, but can been seen, howbeit with a dark starry night. The four stars of the front fins are made partially of Taurus. This Dragon constellation appears in the eastern horizon about mid-summer in the pre-dawn hours, spewing his flood-waters northward toward the Woman of Revelation 12 (Woman in Travail). The Wave of Water is primarily composed of the Constellation Auriga. The are two more less bright stars which are closest to the Dragon’s mouth. These two dimmer stars are also part of this Wave of Water.
