A Soul Is A Terrible Thing To Waste, Part 2: “A Conscience Is A Terrible Thing To Waste!”

To read Part 1, go here…November 11th (A Soul is a Terrible Thing To Waste!)

Just turn on the television or radio, and it won’t be long until you hear a message https://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:US_Navy_080916-N-3595W-055_A_Port-au-Prince_citizen_carries_supplies_to_be_delivered_to_communities_affected_by_Hurricane_Ike.jpgconcerning some form of humanitarianism.

.

Yes, this hopelessly dying world is literally teeming with social justice! And these social justice messages completely saturate today’s media.

.

Whether television, radio, Internet, newspapers, magazines, billboards or whatever other means of communication, these humanitarian messages come at us one after another!

A CONSCIENCE IS A TERRIBLE THING TO BLUNT!

.

But don’t hold your breath, waiting to hear a message concerning the value of the human conscience or the worth of the human soul!

.

This world isn’t the least bit concerned about the soul, nor of the heart.

THE TWO BEASTShttp://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:Burgkmair_whore_babylon_color.jpg

.

Now, while Christians are confidently assuming that they will be snatched out of the world prior to the appearing of the two beasts of Revelation 13 on the world-stage, during the coming crisis, the fact is, those two beasts have been in the world for a very long time.

False Prophet.

Listen to John 2:18…“Little children, it is the last time: and as ye have heard that antichrist shall come, EVEN NOW are there many antichrists; whereby we know that it is the last time.”

.

Yes, the two antichrist beasts have been around a very long time! And they are in reality, the two forms of Satan’s attack on Christians and upon the unsaved multitudes!

MULTIFACETED BEAST

.

But what modern-day theologians have forgotten is that the Bible uses, “beasts” to represent world-powers.

.https://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:Merian%27s_Daniel_7_engraving.jpg

For instance, just a quick reading of Revelation 17:8-12 reveals that the antichrist beast is comprised of “kings and kingdoms”.

.

And while the 1st antichrist beast represented Satan’s world-system during the Dark Ages, the 2nd beast represents what we’re going through right now!

SATAN NORMALIZES SIN

.

Yes, Satan is now coming as the False Prophet, the 2nd beast of Revelation 13.

.

And armed with his new high-tech arsenal, this invisible world ruler can inscribe his fatal mark deeply upon the hearts of the unsuspecting multitudes.

.

Yes, via today’s internet devices, Satan can virtually engrave his ungodly qualities upon the tables of the hearts of all: young and old, men, women, and children, Christian, and non-Christian.

SATAN DEADENS THE CONSCIENCE

.

And, by constantly repeating the same narrative, Satan can blunt and even deaden the conscience, eventually normalizing any sin he wishes to promote throughout society.

.

Listen…“Now the Spirit speaketh expressly, that in the latter times some shall depart from the faith…having their conscience seared with a hot iron;” 1st Timothy 4:1 

.

Here is foretold of the day in which Satan will sear men’s consciences with a hot iron. This hot iron is actually Satan’s branding iron in which he engraves his mark upon the hearts of all who remain under his authority.

“THY WORD HAVE I HID IN MY HEART”

Psalm 119:11

.

But instead of allowing our minds to be filled with the attributes of the world, the Bible instead encourages us to “Keep My commandments, and live; and My law as the apple of thine eye. Bind them upon thy fingers, write them upon the table of thine heart. Proverbs 7:2, 3

.

Here we have the clear command to bind God’s commandments upon the table of our heart. And the entire Bible is the expanded version of God’s commandments.

.

“A MARK IN THEIR RIGHT HAND, OR…FOREHEADS”

Revelation 13:16

.

But Satan is not about to allow this above passage from Proverbs 7:2, 3 to find its fulfillment.

.

Instead he is now feverishly working night and day to etch his character upon the hearts of mankind via the images and words which come to us over the airways on a 24/7/365 basis!

.

And so, it should be no surprise when we see a growing movement in which society all seems to be marching in lockstep, filled with an ever-increasing hateful rage against the people of God.

.

Satan is successfully deadening the consciences of humanity, filling them with his attributes instead of the virtues of Heaven.

“A HIGHWAY…THE WAY OF HOLINESS”

.

Well, if there is any Good News, it is only found in the escape route provided for any man, woman, or child who seeks to “flee from the wrath to come.” Matthew 3:7 & luke 3:7

.

Yes, this escape route is spoken of by Isaiah…“And an highway shall be there, and a way, and it shall be called The way of holiness;” Isaiah 35:8

.

And all are encouraged to forsake this present world and begin to make their sojourn on that highway out of this world, and onward and upward toward the Celestial City of God!

TODAY’S FEATURED HEAVENLY SIGN

7 HEADS, 10 HORNS, & 7 CROWNS OF THE DRAGON

.

“And there appeared another wonder in heaven; and behold a great red dragon, having seven heads and ten horns, and seven crowns upon his heads.” Revelation 12:3

.Dragon of Revelation 12 Constellation

In Revelation, the Dragon of Revelation 12 is described as having seven heads, ten horns, and seven crowns. However, the Dragon Constellation up in the night sky does not.

.

But God has faithfully created the wave of water, in such a way, as to illustrate this same concept of the seven heads, ten horns, and seven crowns. Because this wave of water is basically composed of ten stars.

.

The main body of the wave has seven stars (#‘s, 1 thru 7). And the tip of the crest of the wave has the other three stars (#’s, 8, 9 & 10). So we have this 7 and 10 numbering. And this gives us a great clue, as to where in the Bible we should look, to find out the riddle as to just what or who do these 7 heads, 10 crowns, and 7 horns represent. Because, the Bible speaks very much about floods and waters as being associated with Satan (the Dragon).
