CUTTLEFISH: THE ULTIMATE IMPOSTORS!

.Cuttlefish.ogv - Wikipedia - Share-alike License

One of the most amazing creatures ever created is the Cuttlefish! Actually, it is not a fish, but a type of mollusk, like a squid, or an octopus.

.

The reason why this creature is so incredible, is that it can just glance at its environment and instantly change its body to imitate that environment.

.

For instance, if it wants to hide from its enemies, or lie-in-wait for its victims, next to a sea-weed, it simply changes its color, spots, and shape to imitate that sea-weed. It can even instantly grow leaf-like appendages to imitate certain sea-weeds!

.

This little creature is nothing short of amazing!

CUTTLEFISH: SYMBOL OF SATAN

.

Well, God has created this little predator to give us further insight into the inner working of the kingdom of Satan.

(As this little 26 second video below shows, the Cuttlefish has the ability to paralyze his potential victims, by using his hypnotizing strobe-light effect! Amazing!)

.

Certainly Satan and his unseen minions love to make themselves invisible! That way, they can work their misery and woe upon this unsuspecting world, without its inhabitants becoming alarmed, causing us to rebel against Satan’s kingdom, as we flee to God!

WILLIAM RANDOLPH HEARST

.

And the main thrust of the classroom lesson was that Hearst wholeheartedly engaged in “Yellow Journalism”, as he used exaggerations and sensationalism in his vast and powerful empire of newspapers, to promote his own personal political views.

.

And so, William R. Hearst was tagged with the demeaning title of being a “Yellow Journalist”.

THE INDUSTRY STANDARD

.

https://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:Hearst_1906_Wizard_of_Ooze.jpgBut what was once considered to be a despicable and disdainful form of dishonesty, has now become the industry standard in today’s world!

.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:Newspaper_vendor.jpg

In other words, “Yellow Journalism” has now become “the new normal” throughout the daily news industry, to a great degree!

.

Yes, not only newspapers, but radio, television and Internet are saturated with the same exaggerations, sensationalism, biased coverage, story-spiking, and sometimes, out-and-out lies.

“AND BECAUSE INIQUITY SHALL ABOUND, THE LOVE OF MANY SHALL WAX COLD”

Matthew 24:12 

.

This massive constellation is comprised of the various constellations on this websiteTo look around and witness all the venomous hatred between the various political, religious, cultural, ethnic, and social groups is nothing short of amazing!

.

But this is nothing new! Not only did the religious rulers despise Jesus to the degree that they ultimately put Him to death, but even among themselves they were divided into a number of factions: the Pharisees and Sadducees, for instance.

.

Yes, even among these two religious groups, the overwhelming hatred often manifested itself over their disagreements about the Scriptures.

“WHY DO THE HEATHEN RAGE?”

Psalm 2:1

https://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:Anti-Christian_sign_in_Federal_Plaza_Chicago.jpg.

But in today’s world, the ever increasing hatred only confirms the prophetic veracity of the Bible! Listen…”And the nations were angry, and Thy wrath is come, and the time of the dead, that they should be judged, and that Thou shouldest give reward unto thy servants the prophets, and to the saints, and them that fear Thy name, small and great; and shouldest destroy them which destroy the earth.” Revelation 11:18

.

Never before in history has the world stood as witnesses to the cruel venomous hatred and animosity between the various cultures and groups of humans, both in the secular world as well as in the religious world.

“…LET GOD BE TRUE, BUT EVERY MAN A LIAR!”

Romans 3:4

.

It is truly astounding to see how the mass media has devolved into little more than partisan https://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:Trump_protest_San_Diego_-_May_26,_2016.jpgwarriors, willing to spin half-truths and out-and-out lies, for the sake of their own political parties!

.

The anger, the cruel mockings, the hate-filled jests of the TV “comedians”, the cold-hearted indifference, the vicious gossip of the day-time talk shows, the slanders, the false accusations, the verbal scourgings, and the savage name-calling have all risen to an intense and intolerable degree!

“THE PROUD HAVE FORGED A LIE AGAINST ME!”

Psalm 119:69

Well, the point is, we are just now getting a small taste of what’s in store for true worshipers of God in the coming months!

“LOVE NOT THE WORLD!”

(read 1st John 2:15-17)

https://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:Shiite_Muslims_executed_by_ISIS.png

.

But truth-be-told, God, being the Searcher of Hearts, sees how much we inherently love this present, selfish world.

.

https://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:Anti-Christian_sign_in_Federal_Plaza_Chicago.jpg

 

And so, He must drive out our trust and our love for this evil world of sin, with all its earthy pleasures and proud, ambitious pursuits…“If any man love the world, the love of the Father is not in him (or her).” (read 1st John 2:15-17).

.

Thus, God begins a work in many souls, to root out that innate earthly love. This is one reason why God allowing all this growing hatred and intolerance which we are now seeing around the world.

.

And we should not be surprised to see things go completely evil in the coming days.

.

And while it grieves the Lord greatly, to behold suffering, He knows that in the end, these things will purify our hearts, even as precious gold is purified!

CALLING ALL NOBLE BEREANS!

.

Now, if the Reader will scroll to almost the bottom of today’s devotional, he or she can listen to the audio chapter from Ellen White’s book, The Desire of Ages, entitled “Priestly Plottings”. This short chapter describes the very same hatred which we are seeing in today’s world.

.

And those “Noble Bereans” will also want to listen to another 25 minute excerpt from Harold Camping’s daily call-in talk show, The Open Forum.

TODAY’S FEATURED HEAVENLY SIGN

.

 

.

.

.

THE NARROW GATE STARS

Winter Constellations in West

.

 

This most amazing phenomenon is seen throughout the winter. Although it can be observed most of the winter, it is seen best when it is the western part of the sky, at winter’s end (The end of winter being the final scene of this heavenly Gospel story). Orion , the Dragon, and the Glorious White Horse are beginning to descend into the western horizon (sketch to right is Winter Constellations descending into western horizon. This can actually be seen as early as December, in the pre-dawn hours).

.

And at this point it is apparent that the Fleeing Woman of Revelation 12 Constellation  is veering toward the two bright stars, known as Castor and Pollux (sketch to below left). But the Wide Gate Stars are composed of the two brightest stars of the Auriga Constellation, known as the star, Capella, and the star, Menkalinan. The two stars, Castor and Pollux, make up the concept of the Orion’s Narrow Gate Stars.

Revelation 12 Woman & Orion's Gate & Wide Gate.

This can even be observed into June in the western sky (for a short time just after dark). While a dark night is best for seeing the Woman Constellation, the 4 stars which comprise the Narrow Gate/Wide Gate Stars can be seen even under mediocre conditions. It begins with the Fleeing Woman of Revelation 12 Constellation (AKA Ursa Major) going towards these two doors.

.

The sketch to left shows, the two doors are each composed of two bright stars. The two bright stars that comprise the Narrow Gate are the two brightest stars of the Orion the Reaper’s sickle. The two stars that comprise the ‘Wide Gate’ Stars are the two brightest stars of the wave of water that comes out of the Dragon Constellation’s mouth (for explanation of “Wave of Water”, just click here). The stars that make up the ‘Narrow Gate’ are about half the width of the Wide Gate (see sketch to right).

.

Editor’s note: These sketches on this page are merely sketches. The stars are not in their exact place. However, they are close enough to find them in the night sky. But as with most stars, it takes persistence to finally locate them.
