And The Nations Were Angry! Part 5: “The False Prophet’s Counterfeit Compassion”

To read Part 1, go here…October 24th (And The Nations Were Angry!)

.

.

.

.

“And the nations were angry,

and Thy wrath is come, 

and the time of the dead,

that they should be judged…

Revelation 11:18, 19

Can you believe it? It’s been over 50 years since the Summer of Love in San Francisco!

.

Remember that?

.

Flowers were given as a symbol of peace and love!

“LOVE SHMOVE!”

Well, it wasn’t long until that movement went the way of almost every movement.

.

And the world returned back to its normal push-and-shove ways, now even more skeptical of any so-called, “peace and love” rhetoric.

“Where is the love? Where is the love?”

.

Now, just a quick examination of today’s world and one might conclude that God is presently withdrawing his protection away from the world!

.

The pure hatred in politics is rising to new heights on a daily basis!

.

The threats (and actual misdeeds) of physical violence are getting a bit scary, to say the least!

“AND THE NATIONS WERE ANGRY!”

.

Now all this hatred and violence reminds us of the prophecy found in Revelation…“And the nations https://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:Anti-Christian_sign_in_Federal_Plaza_Chicago.jpgwere angry, and Thy wrath is come, the time of the dead, that they should be judged…” Revelation 11:18

.

Truly, the nations are angry!

.

And this is a great sign that our Judgment Day has verily begun!

THE REVELATION 13 FALSE PROPHET

.

Revelation 13 foretold of the day when the 2nd Beast of Revelation would arise to deceive the world, and cause them to worship the 1st Beast (which beast is actually symbolic of this present world system: Satan’s world-system).

.

Now of course, most all false prophets must appear to be kindly and loving. Otherwise it would be very difficult to gather followers. And it is written that the Revelation 13 False Prophet has “two horns like a lamb”. Revelation 13:11

.

In other words, this above verse reveals that this Revelation 13 False Prophet will be a counterfeit of the Lamb of God, Jesus!

.

JESUS, THE TRUE TWO-HORNED LAMB of GODhttp://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:Fritz_von_Uhde_-_Weib,_warum_weinest_du_(1892-94).jpg

.

Yes, this above prophecy is pointing to none other than Jesus. And Jesus had two horns of power…“Mercy and truth are met together; righteousness and peace have kissed each other.” Psalm 85:10

.

Yes, one of the horns of the Lamb of God is “mercy and…peace”

.

And as we look at the two major political entities in this land, we see that one of them claims to be “the people of mercy and compassion”!

.

And truth-be-told, this political entity often advocates for many new legislations which they suppose to be merciful.

LOVE YOUR ENEMIES?

Matthew 5:44

But often, when this group is strongly opposed, they begin to get rather vicious!

.

And in this current political climate, their followers have become extremely vicious, sometimes even committing acts of violence against their supposed enemies, the opposing political faction (which is the justice/morality horn of the False Prophet).

Romans 3:10

.

But really, what else could we expect. After all, without the abiding presence of the Holy Spirit, it is impossible to possess true mercy and compassion…“A righteous man regardeth the life of his beast: but the tender mercies of the wicked are cruel.” Proverbs 12:10

.

As this above verse reveals, only true righteousness can be truly merciful.

GOD NOW EXPOSING THEIR FRAUD

.

And so, God is faithfully allowing this False Prophet to show his “true colors”.

.

Therefore, what we are seeing in today’s political arena, is the unmasking of this counterfeit compassion, as that political faction becomes louder and more hateful and violent.

“For God is Love!”

1st John 4:8

.

In contrast, Heaven sent Jesus to this world to show us true righteousness and genuine love and compassion.

.

And when opposed, He quietly answered His accusers, eventually allowing them to nail Him to the Cross!

“Good News From A Far Country!”

Proverbs 25:25

.

https://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:Angel_prayers.jpgAnd so, the very Good News is that we don’t have to accept such a low-grade “love”.

.

No, we can still turn to the One who unfailingly exercised true mercy and compassion.

.

And in His great grace, He is even willing to receive all those of us who once hated Him, but now are asking forgiveness and restoration from our former selfish ways.

THE ARK IN THE HEAVENS

.Two Turtledoves birds & Flower Of The Field Constellations

So what importance to us is all this information? Well, if a person goes out at night, beginning in April (earlier in southern-most latitudes, and later in northern-most), in the pre-dawn hour, they just might locate the constellation commonly referred to as the Sagittarius Constellation . It is located in the southern sky. (Each night it appears a little earlier, slowly inching westward, through the summer, until it finally disappears below the western horizon in November.)

.Ark of the Covenant Constellation

At first, it simply appears as two twin birds flying westward. But if you look once again, it just might appear as a long box-like figure, with one star on the right, as you face it, and two stars on the left. The box, of course would be the Ark, and the stars on either side would represent angels, which are sometimes referred to as stars in the Bible (for instance, “the seven stars are the angels…” Revelation 1:20). To the right is a star-chart from Wikipedia, in which the editor of this site has sketched in this Sagittarius Constellation, to show how God created it to appear.

Star-chart to right is from Wikipedia. Editor has sketched over Sagittarius to show this Ark Constellation.
