Yesterday’s devotional (click here) established that there was coming a day in which God’s people are to “RUN!”, according to the prophecy of Habakkuk.

.

And God’s people will know and understand that the time has come when Habakkuk’s vision begins to speak, as is written… “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” Habakkuk 2:2, 3

.

So just how will this vision begin to speak? And what is this vision all about? And where are God’s people to flee to?

APOSTASY IN THE CHURCH-WORLD

.

Well, the 1st chapter of Habakkuk explains the problem.http://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/commons/3/38/Tissot_Habakkuk.jpg

.

Listen to Habakkuk’s complaint to the Lord…“Why dost Thou shew me iniquity, and cause me to behold grievance?…Therefore the law is slacked, and judgment doth never go forth: for the wicked doth compass about the righteous; therefore wrong judgment proceedeth.” Habakkuk 1:3, 4

.

Here is the basic theme of Habakkuk’s prophecy: that God’s people are surrounded by the wicked, resulting in wrong judgment and slacked law.

WORLD-LOVING, ITCHING EARS GOSPELS

.

Now Paul also speaks of this same time of trouble in the New Testament….“For the time will come when they will not endure sound doctrine; but after their own lusts shall they heap to themselves teachers, having itching ears; And they shall turn away their ears from the truth, and shall be turned unto fables.” 2nd Timothy 4:3, 4

.

OK, so here is revealed that the day will come in which sound doctrine will no longer be tolerated.

.

And instead, fables will be substituted for those sound doctrines.

And so, has that day arrived, of which both Habakkuk and Paul foretold?

.

Have we come to the day when they will no longer tolerate sound doctrine?

“TO DECEIVE THE VERY ELECT”

Matthew 24:24

.

Certainly, there are many churches which still teach from the Bible.

http://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:Question_book_magnify2.svg.

So maybe that day has not yet arrived.

.

After all, don’t most churches teach the basic tenets of the Bible? Don’t they repeat the basic truth that Jesus came and lived and died on the Cross of Calvary for the sins of Mankind? Don’t they teach that eternal judgment awaits all who refuse that free gift of grace?

.

So how can anyone possibly think that today’s churches no longer tolerate sound doctrine?

“ANOTHER JESUS…ANOTHER GOSPEL”

.

Unfortunately, whenever a church or ministry combines truth with gross error, that transforms even the true doctrines into false doctrines.

.

Take for example the church at Corinth. That church began listening to a look-alike gospel, in which Paul plainly confessed…“For if he that cometh preacheth another Jesus, whom we have not preached, or if ye receive another spirit, which ye have not received, or another gospel, which ye have not accepted, ye might well bear with him.” 2nd Corinthians 11:4

.

Yes, those world-loving Corinthians were already bringing in teachers who were teaching a compromised gospel.

.

And Paul told them that this was “another Jesus…another Spirit…another gospel!”

“SPEAK UNTO US SMOOTH THINGS! PROPHESY DECEITS!”

Isaiah 30:10

.

And this is exactly what has happened in our day!

.

Satan has moved in and removed the harder and more difficult truths of the Bible, replacing them with a syrupy-sweet prosperity-driven gospel, filled with sensuality, giddiness, and mammon-loving self-seeking.

.

And as a result, even the true basic doctrines being taught have lost their soundness, by reason of the false doctrines mingled in, permeating even the true doctrines with worldly-minded selfishness.

“CERTAIN MEN, CREPT IN UNAWARES”

Jude 1:4

.

And because of the current-day mammon-loving apostasy, the church-world hashttp://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:Burgkmair_whore_babylon_color.jpg attracted unconverted “Chaldeans” (false brethren) who will not tolerate a return to the pure truth which the Bible actually teaches.

.

Listen to Revelation 18:2, 4, concerning these last days…“Babylon the Great is fallen, is fallen, and is become the habitation of devils…And I heard another voice from heaven, saying, Come out of her, My people, that ye be not partakers of her sins, and that ye receive not of her plagues.”

.

This above passage reveals that God’s people are to be finally called out of this harlot city, Babylon.

.

Oh yes, this harlot city, Babylon the Great is speaking of this entire world-system, which is Satan’s kingdom. But by compromising with this selfish world, the church-world eventually became swallowed up by Satan, and now is an integral part of Babylon the Great!

.

And so, Habakkuk’s vision is now speaking. God’s people are now surrounded by Chaldeans (unbelievers and false brethren).

.

And Habakkuk’s command to “RUN!” is now sounding!

NOWHERE TO RUN!

.

But where do we run? Should we flee to the mountains as it says in Matthew 24, Mark 13, and Luke 21?

.http://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:No_Trespassing_sign_at_empty_lot_in_February.JPG

But how can we flee to the mountains in this day of increasing governmental regulations? After all, the government has pretty much locked up the wilderness with no trespassing signs.

.

Well, that dilemma will be dealt with in tomorrow’s devotional (click here).

WOMAN ROTATES THROUGH THE SEASONS…

.

This page is about the Big Dipper, also called the Great Bear constellation (Ursa Major ). However, the ancient pagan cultures did not see this constellation as God intended it to be seen. It is actually a headless woman in childbirth.  This is seen in springtime. It is seen in the northern skies. 

.

But as the seasons progress, this travailing woman flips upside down, now appearing as a woman with upraised arms like eagle wings who is running (eventually flying, as shown in sketch on right) into the wilderness (westward). The single star representing her birth-child (Christ) now becomes her head (“Christ is the head of the church.” Ephesians 5:23

.

.

The 7 Stars (Big Dipper) is easy to see with its very bright 7 stars. But the Revelation 12 Woman (Ursa Major) must be seen on a dark starry night, away from city lights. 

.

These are star charts from Wikipedia, with sketches of the Woman added.
