AS YE SEE, ‘WHAT DAY APPROACHING?’http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:Tissot_The_Flight_of_the_Prisoners.jpg

.

In Part 12 (click here), concerning “As Ye See, ‘What Day Approaching’?”, it was established that there was to come a day in which God’s people are to make an end-time exodus out of the apostate church-world.

CHURCH APOSTASY

.

In Part 13 (click here), it was established that Habakkuk’s vision concerning the corrupting influence of “Chaldeans” is now being fulfilled as the church-world has fully embraced the prosperity-driven gospel now being taught in today’s pulpits.

WHERE DO WE RUN?

.

But today’s devotional will focus on how and where God’s people are to flee to.

Where do we run?

.

After all, the government has locked up the vast wilderness areas, making them all but impossible to literally flee to!

COME A GOOD WAY OUT!

.

So how and where are God’s people to go?

After all, it is impossible to come out of this wicked world!

.

But the fact is, God’s people can come A GOOD WAY OUT of the world if they choose to do so!

.

For one thing, God’s people can and must vacate the apostasy which is the current condition of the church-world.

“MY PEOPLE ARE DESTROYED FOR A LACK OF KNOWLEDGE”

Hosea 4:6

.

But the problem is, until God’s people fully understand the current-day apostasy, they will never be able to decidedly come out of Babylon.

.

Unfortunately, there are many faithful church-goers who are greatly ignorant of the Bible.

.

Too many professing Christians have become so dependent on their teachers that they have never studied the Bible to the point that they are able to stand on their own two feet (spiritually speaking).

SATAN’S “MINISTERS OF RIGHTEOUSNESS”

2nd Corinthians 11:15

.

And because Satan has filled the pulpits with his own, “ministers of righteousness”, the churches have become filled with doctrines based on half-truths mingled with the yeast of the Sadducees and Pharisees.

.

It is as Habakkuk 1:4 prophesied…“Therefore the law is slacked, and judgment doth never go forth: for the wicked doth compass about the righteous; therefore wrong judgment proceedeth.”

.

As this above verse foretold, the day would come when church-goers would no longer tolerate the pure, unvarnished truth…“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;” 2nd Timothy 4:3

“SUPPOSING THAT GAIN IS GODLINESS; FROM SUCH WITHDRAW”

1st Timothy 6:5

.

And in yesterday’s devotional (click here), it was proclaimed that by reason of the overwhelming prosperity-driven gospels, the church-world has filled up with worldly-minded people, i.e., Babylonians (Chaldeans) who will not tolerate any doctrine which calls for a complete death to self and transformation of the heart into the likeness of Christ.

“TO DECEIVE IF POSSIBLE, EVEN THE VERY ELECT”

Matthew 24:24 & Mark 13:22

.

Oh yes, today’s churches pay lip-service to a selfless Christ-likeness. But as Ezekiel 33:31http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:Brown_tree_snake_Boiga_irregularis_2_USGS_Photograph.jpg foretells, “for with their mouth they shew much love, but their heart goeth after their covetousness.”

.

Yes, Satan, just like a forked-tongued serpent, knows how to speak out of both sides of his mouth, telling each parishioner exactly what their heart longs to hear!

.

To those in the churches who love this present world, the Devil preaches a world-loving gospel.

.

But to those who are have some degree of faithfulness to Christ, Satan puts in just enough biblical truth to keep them in his Babylonian captivity.

SEDUCING THE VERY ELECT

.

And so, how are God’s people to come out of a religious system which teaches so much seemingly biblical truth? After all, the Bible reveals that “For false Christs and false prophets shall rise, and shall shew signs and wonders, to seduce, if it were possible, even the elect.” Mark 13:22

.

Yes, mainstream Christianity is teaching another gospel which is so close to the Bible that Satan will attempt seduce even the Elect people of God!

“MY PEOPLE ARE DESTROYED FOR A LACK OF KNOWLEDGE”

Hosea 4:6

.

And so, the great burden for God’s people today becomes, to study their way out of http://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:USMC-06831.jpgBabylon!

.

In other words, it is by knowledge, true uncompromised Bible truth, that God’s people are to find their way out of the jungle-like confusion of Babylon!

.

And to fully and finally come out of “the city of confusion” (Isaiah 24:10), God’s people must purify themselves from the leaven of lies which has permeated God’s Word, via the pulpits of today’s church-world!

“WHEN FOR THE TIME, YE OUGHT TO BE TEACHERS”

Hebrews 5:12

.

And this will be accomplished when God’s people study for their own selves to the point that they are each qualified to be teachers, no longer relying on the teachers of Babylon to tell them what to believe and what to not believe!

.

And then, as they learn more and more of true Christlike wisdom, they will grow increasingly aware of just how great is the current-day apostasy in the church-world!

“YE NEED NOT THAT ANY MAN TEACH YOU!”

.

And so, when Habakkuk says that we must “RUN!”, this is how we are to “RUN!”

http://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:USMC-06831.jpg.

In other words, it is by a constant increase of our knowledge and wisdom that we can finally come out of the City of Confusion, Babylon!

.

And the 1st Epistle of John reveals, “But the Anointing which ye have received of Him abideth in you, and ye need not that any man teach you: but as the same Anointing teacheth you of all things, and is truth, and is no lie, and even as it hath taught you, ye shall abide in Him.” 1st John 2:27

.

Here is revealed that we need not that any human becomes our teacher, if we truly are indwelt with the Spirit of Holiness!

.

He will graciously teach us everything we need to know!

NO MORE EARTHLY SUPPORT!

.

In this day of church-wide apostasy, God’s true Church-Elect must finally come out of the Babylonian confusion and stand upon God’s uncompromised Word, even though they must vacate those fraternal/social/religious organizations which they have so greatly depended upon to feed them, clothe them and comfort them in times past!

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.
