“AMONG SNARES”

.

As one reads or listens to Ellen White’s, “Desire of Ages” chapter, “Among Snares”, it becomes apparent that the very same rascals who sought to ensnare Jesus are still around today. (scroll to nearly the bottom of this page to listen)

“If they have persecuted Me, they will also persecute you”

John 15:20

.

Oh no, Jesus is no longer carrying on His literal earthly ministry.

.

But those very same types of characters who tried to ensnare Him and falsely accuse Him are busy engaging in the same deceptive practices today!

THE WORLD OF POLITICS

.

.

The modern media is working hard to accuse their supposed enemies of wrong-doing in any possible way that they can. Even if they have to exaggerate, cover-up, or even out-and-out lie, they will now do so without hesitation or shame!

.

It’s truly amazing to witness the very same tactics which were once used against Jesus now being used against political foes!

.

Even now, these dishonest ones are beginning to play their deceptive and vicious games against various Christians and their businesses.

.

But in the end, they will meet with the same fate that Christ’s enemies will suffer: they will stand before the Divine Judge to receive their eternal reward for their misdeeds.

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.
