The 6th Head of Antichrist: The Secular Takeover of America

By admin On August 13th, 2019

Bill Federer

There is a fierce battle going on right now in America for the soul of this nation. The forces of atheism/socialism/communism are fighting against the forces of christianism/republicism/capitalism/.

.

Of course, those who are familiar with this website realize that these two political entities are actually the 6th and 7th Head of the Antichrist Beast of Revelation 13 (read: Part 51: “Coming Out Of An Atheistic World!”)

We Wrestle Not Against Flesh & Blood! Part ?, “Same Battle, But Different Fronts!”

To read part 1, go here…JANUARY 15 (We Wrestle Not Against Flesh & Blood!)

.

.

.

.

“Wherein in time past ye walked

according to the course of this world,

according to the prince of the power of the air,

the spirit that now worketh in the children of disobedience:”

Ephesians 2:2

.

.

.

.

.

A father received a tearful phone call from his daughter, concerning some struggles she was currently suffering through.

.

And as the father listened, he realized that her problem was one that he had never personally dealt with. And at first he couldn’t appreciate how such seemingly minor issues could be causing her so much grief and despair.

.

And so, not wanting to merely give her some typical fatherly one-liner, thinking he could solve her problems in 60 seconds or less, he just listened.  

.

And the more he listened, the more he realized that her problem was in an area that he never personally had in his own life. It just was not an area of life in which he had ever personally struggled with, nor even thought to be important.

.

But his distraught daughter was indeed struggling in this area. And at first, he didn’t really know what to say to her.

.

But after some time, the fog began to clear away, as he at last realized the common denominator between her struggles and his own very different personal struggles.

.

And so, the father finally assured his daughter that her battles were not with people, as she thought, but were actually with unseen spirits who were robbing her of her peace and contentment.

.

And then he told her that even though her battle was different from his, the very same Devil was causing them!

.

“After all”, the father continued, “Aren’t we all just trying to be happy? And isn’t it true that the entire world is full of people who, like us, are merely striving to be happy, and to find peace and contentment?”

.

Now, seeing that he had his daughter’s full attention, the father continued, “But even though humanity’s striving for happiness is a universal endeavor, nevertheless, this unbelieving world is striving for that peace and happiness in many different ways. Some think that such peace is found in financial independence. Others seek for happiness by pursuing fleshly pleasures and carnal delights. Still others might go after the proud attainments of life, while many others may seek after new thrills and adventures. And then there are the vast multitudes who immerse themselves in the various forms of entertainment now available by means of this cornucopian super-society.”

.

“But the one common denominator, is that we’re all seeking to be happy, to be peace-filled and content.”

.

Well, the father assured his daughter that, “The Bible offers the human race that one-and-only-one true way to find such happiness, joy and peace!”

.

And for example, Isaiah 26:3 says…“Thou wilt keep him in perfect peace whose mind is stayed on Thee (Jesus). Because he trusteth in Thee” Isaiah 26:3

.

Yes, here is the one true formula for a life of peace and joy and contentment:to keep our minds stayed upon Jesus, trusting in His precious promises!

.

Jesus says basically the same thing as Isaiah, only in slightly different words…Mat 11:28  Come unto Me, all ye that labour and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest. Take My yoke upon you, and learn of Me; for I am meek and lowly in heart: and ye shall find rest unto your souls. For My yoke is easy, and My burden is light.” Matthew 11:28-30

.

Here is the answer to all the problems in the world! If the people of this planet would only begin to seek after a knowledge of Jesus Christ, the world would eventually find the answer to their problems, each and every one! True happiness would thus be achieved, and by none other ways!

.

And so, dear Reader, the bottom line is just this. Yes, “the god of this world”, Lucifer, may convince us that happiness must be attained by means of the various selfish ways that this world-system offers. And in these various ways, he misdirects our footsteps. But though it seems as if we are each fighting our own personal war on many different battle fronts, it nevertheless is the same war, and we all have the same goal for victory: love, joy and peace.

.

And both this father and his daughter may seemingly be struggling in different ways, the answer to his problems is the very same answer to her different problems as well: to look away from this world of sin and selfishness, and look up to the ways of Heaven, and to Heaven’s Jesus!

.

This is the answer to their problems.

.

And this is the answer to both your problems and my problems as well!

.

.

.

SIGN IN HEAVEN

.

Well, If you look up and lift up your head, you just might see a wonderful sign, which God spoke about in Revelation 12. It is a constellation of a woman. The ancients only saw it as a great bear. It is commonly known as Ursa Major . It is also known as the 7 Stars (aka, The Big Dipper), but with the addition of various other stars.

.

But with the eye of faith, it actually appears as the Revelation 12 Woman. You see, God has placed in the heavens, the symbol of His bride, the Church-Faithful.

.

Listen… “And there appeared a great wonder (sign) in heaven; a woman…And she being with child cried, travailing in birth, and pained to be delivered…And to the woman were given two wings of a great eagle, that she might fly into the wilderness, into her place… from the face of the serpent. Revelation 12:1, 2, 14.

TRAVAILING IN SUMMER, FLEEING IN WINTER

star-chart ursa major

.

In the summer night-sky, Just as this passage

 says, she appears as the woman-in-travail. But in the winter, she flips upside-down, to appear as the Fleeing Woman of Revelation 12, just as this passage states. But whether this Virtuous Woman is in labor pains, or fleeing to the mountains, she is the heavenly icon of God’s bride, His Church.

.

And now we need to explore how this fleeing woman in the heavens relates to us, the Church. Just like this fleeing woman, we too, need to flee from the wrath to come. But how do we flee? And where do we flee to? Well just read this article and you will find out exactly what the Bible has to say about all this.

“But Oz never did give nothing to the Tin Man,

.

Yes, the Wizard of Oz was a truly incredible work of unforgettable and magical imagery, which made a tremendous impact upon movie fans around the world!

.

In it, little fresh-faced Dorothy of Kansas captured the hearts of millions, as she and her three companions sought after the seemingly divine providence of the awesome and dreadful Wizard of that fantasy city of Oz!

LUCIFER: THE FATHER OF LIES

.

But like so many other antichrist deceptions emanating from this world, Lucifer’s Kingdom of Babylon, the story of the Wizard of Oz was no exception.

.

And today’s devotional is dedicated to exposing just one of those deceptions. And today’s focus is concerning the Tin Woodsman, who was lacking a heart, and joined Dorothy’s pilgrimage to seek after the Wizard’s providence.

SECULARISTS ANSWER TO PILGRIM’S PROGRESS

http://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:The_Pilgrim's_Progress_frontispiece_and_title_page_third_edition_1679.jpg.

Oh yes, that magical movie, The Wizard of Oz, captivated the hearts of movie-fans for decades, because it was so charming, colorful, and masterfully-produced!

http://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:The_Pilgrim's_Progress_frontispiece_and_title_page_third_edition_1679.jpg.

And yet, as wonderful as it seemed, it nevertheless was actually just a cheap “knock-off” of John Bunyan’s allegorical tale, Pilgrim’s Progress.

.

And it was actually just the mirror-opposite of Bunyan’s book, in that it directed the movie audience back down to this present world, instead of to Heaven, as did Bunyan’s tale. In other words, the far-away Land of Oz was really just a cleverly-disguised version of this world, as opposed to Bunyan’s “Celestial City” which was actually, Heaven. And the Wizard was nothing more than a Hollywood’s secular version of the God of Heaven.

https://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:Tin_Woodman.pngTHE HUMAN HEART DESPERATELY WICKED

.

And the big lie which is today’s focus, was that the Wizard told the Tin Man that he didn’t need a heart because he already had loving heart! This was just another deceitful lie by the “god of this world”, who would like us to believe that we humans can have inherent goodness apart from God!

.

It’s just like one songster sang back in the 1970’s, “But Oz never did give nothing to the Tin Man, that he didn’t already have!”

.

But nothing could be further from the truth! No, just the opposite! The Bible informs us that the human “heart is deceitful above all things, and desperately wicked: who can know it?” Jeremiah 17:9

.

Yes, the Bible reveals the true condition of the human heart: “deceitful above all things, and desperately wicked”

THE DAY OF THE LORD SHALL REVEAL MAN’S WICKEDNESS

https://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:Book_of_Revelation_Chapter_9-1_%28Bible_Illustrations_by_Sweet_Media%29.jpg.

But while many unconverted citizens of this, the Devil’s world, have been deluded by that Master-Deceiver into believing they possess a loving heart, there are many others who, like the Tin Man, realize they only have a loveless heart. Often these heartless ones are diagnosed by the psychiatric community as being “sociopaths”, lacking any love and even lacking a conscience to some degree.

.

But truth-be-told, the hour is coming in which all those who have not been truly Born Again will be fully made aware that they too are in need of a heart!

.

Yes, the frightful hour is coming in which God will allow the entire world to reveal just how evil, we fallen humans really are!

The Bible actually prophesy’s that things will get so evil, that once loving parents will even be cannibalizing their own children and visa-versa…“And I will cause them to eat the flesh of their sons and the flesh of their daughters, and they shall eat every one the flesh of his friend in the siege and straitness, wherewith their enemies, and they that seek their lives, shall straiten them.” Jeremiah 19:9

.

This Old Testament prophecy will soon be re-fulfilled on a grand world-wide scale!

.

Yes, very soon, God is going to remove any false delusion that we humans possess any inherent goodness, apart from God!

Well, what’s the Good News here in this horrible report?

.

https://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:Tin_Woodman.pngThe Good News is, that it’s not too late to receive a heart filled with true agape love! Listen again to the Bible…“A new heart also will I give you, and a new spirit will I put within you: and I will take away the stony heart out of your flesh, and I will give you an heart of flesh.” Ezekiel 36:26

 

.

Yes, God can take away any stony-cold loveless heart, and give any one of us who realize that “I too am merely a loveless, heartless Tin-Man” a brand new heart that has the same love and mercy which Jesus has! And as we know, Jesus, our Savior had a heart of infinite love, as He gave His life for an unloving and heartless world who hated Him and spurned His infinite love, crucifying Him on that cruel Cross of Calvary!

The Wave Constellation is primarily comprised of the Auriga Constellation plus one star from Taurus, plus one more star. The Winter Constellations are depicted in this below sketch to the right, and shows this constellation group as they are seen in early winter, as they rise in the eastern skies. The Woman is in the north. The Dragon and Orion are farther south from the Woman.

.

WINTER CONSTELLATIONS-SEEN IN FALL: This sketch to the right is how this constellation group appears in the eastern sky in fall. This is the four primary constellations of the Winter Constellations. They can be seen in this position, in the late fall above the eastern horizon. The Woman of Revelation 12 is commonly called Ursa Major or The Big Dipper and appears in the north. Orion the Soldier is the at the bottom is to the south of the Woman. The The Dragon of Revelation Constellation’s mouth isThe Hyades Cluster, and the tip of his tail is Pleiades, and his Wave of Water is primarily the Auriga constellation. The Glorious Horse Constellation head is of Perseus Constellation and his rear end is Cassiopeia Constellation.

(Editor’s note: It is impossible to make this chart accurate, and visually correct, because the dome effect of the sky makes these constellations look different than they appear when placed on flat paper.)

Street preachers

By admin On July 22nd, 2019

Now in this current ERA of the internet and with websites such as YouTube, there has arisen a phenomenon in which Street preachers can film themselves and gain a much greater and gain a much greater audience.

One problem with this is that in order to gain a big following on YouTube, just about requires the Street preacher to be rather provocative in his speech.

Of course, the Bible also had provocative speakers, such as John the Baptist, Paul the apostle, and even Jesus Christ himself.

And so being provocative is not necessarily a bad thing if it is done in love and patience. However the apostle, Paul, revealed that God is happy with a gospel being preached w even from wrong motels motives. And critics of these Street preachers will often point out some erroneous doctrines put forth by the Street preachersin order to condemn what they are doing.

But the fact is, b Street preachers are getting about the same reaction that the New testament preachers got in the early church. Satan doesn’t won the gospel preached!

But the really sad thing is, where are all the other Christians out there who do not get out and preach the gospel?

Even this website has criticized those who stand in front of abortion clinics saying that they are trying to correct people’s behavior instead of preaching the gospel of salvation. But when one watches on YouTube it is evident that these protesters are indeed preaching the gospel of salvation. And so it’s easy to criticize them, but at least they’re out there doing what they feel the Lord wants him to do!

It would seem better to go out and preach the gospel even with some errors,  than to merely sit at home doing nothing. Oh yes we can wrestle with God in prayer that he will bless those Street preachers and that would be a good thing to do and maybe many Christians are doing just that.

For a long time now it seems as if Satan has pretty much kept the Christian community from persecution by the public. The reason for this is probably because he has Christians locked up by ou our worldly lusts. And we are too busy to be doing the work that God has commissioned us to do.

And maybe if we are too shy to get out with a bullhorn and shout the gospel to the world passing by, we could get a nice Bible tract and handed out or leave it in strategic places. We certainly cannot depend on the internet in the future, since Satan is determined to silence the true gospel on that medium.

Well, the good news is that it is still the day of salvation, and every true believer should pray for strength and Grace to get the true gospel out by any means possible!

 

Do replacement theology advocates hate Jews?

By admin On July 22nd, 2019
  1. It is one of the great purposes of the God of this world, the devil 2 keep churchgoers from understanding the spiritual nature of the Bible. But the fact is, the Bible is a spiritual book. But the natural man does not receive the spiritual instruction because he scorns the spiritual nature of the Bible to a great extent. In other words, the churchgoing world t does not seem to understand nor do they care but the Bible is largely a book of types and symbols and proverbs and allegories.

One great area of the Bible that Satan has worked overtime to annul, is concerning the Jews and how the Bible New testament relates to the nation of Israel. As a matter of fact, there is a false doctrine which Satan has whispered in the ears of theologians that those who believe that the true Israel is a spiritual Israel made up of both Jews and gentiles, and has even given them a derogatory tag known as replacement theology. And part of that new name and doctrine says that all those who believed that the church made up of both Jews and gentiles actually hate the nation of Israel. No this website has given mini biblical proofs that all those who love Jesus are the true Israel of God and the reader is invited to explore those articles. But this devotional is dedicated to refuting that idea. Nothing could be further from the truth as a matter of fact every true believer should have a great love or the Jewish race. And let’s face it, perhaps as much as 50% of the world oh or more could have some Jewish blood in their physical makeup. But just because a Christian does not believe the Bible ever condones the idea of God beginning to work with the nation of Israel does not mean spat that particular Christian does not love the Jewish people. Paul wished that he himself would be condemned if he could save his brethren Jews after the flesh. And this should be the same stance that any Christian should also maintain. Jesus said destroy this Temple and I will raise it up again. Jesus was not talking about a physical Temple, but he was speaking of the temple of his body. And while today’s Bible teachers are mostly directing their sheep to the idea metaphysical Temple will be rebuilt and sacrifices of animals will be resumed, the fact is  this will never happen

But rather the Bible reveals but the body of Christ the church along with the godhead will be the true Temple which will go on forever. But if Satan can convince God’s people that the book of Revelation concerns only literal Jews, then he has successfully cut off the true understanding of the book of Revelation.

And so, in order to further demonize the believers who see the church as spiritual Israel, made up of both Jews and gentiles, the God of this world causes the church world 2 point the accusing finger at us, saying that we hate the jews. But God is the searcher of hearts and he knows who it is who loves him and who it is who desires truly desires the salvation of every Jew after the flesh.

Mystery Babylon, The Harlot Church! Part 2: “Everyone That Useth Proverbs”

.

.

.

Eze 16:44  Behold, every one that useth proverbs shall use this proverb against thee, saying, As is the mother, so is her daughter.

.

.

.

.

.

From Genesis to Revelation, the theme of two women, one an adulterous woman, and the other, a virtuous woman, is interwoven into the warp and woof of the Scriptures. And as the Bible develops, so too this theme of the two woman likewise develops, until we discover that they each represent the two portions of the Church: the church-faithful, and the church-apostate.

.

Listen to Paul… “For it is written, that Abraham had two sons, the one by a bondmaid, the other by a freewoman. But he who was of the bondwoman was born after the flesh; but he of the freewoman was by promise. Which things are an allegory: for these are the two covenants; the one from the mount Sinai, which gendereth to bondage, which is Agar. For this Agar is mount Sinai in Arabia, and answereth to Jerusalem which now is, and is in bondage with her children. Jerusalem which is above is free, which is the mother of us all.” Galatians 4:22-26

.

In this above passage, God, through the hand of Paul, presents the basic concept of the Church actually being divided into two camps, the Church-Faithful and the Church-Apostate!

BABYLON NOW!

.

Now the subject of the apostate churches should always be handled delicately, since none of us can hold our head up high, in these last days! We don’t want to throw rockshttp://www.creationism.org/images/DoreBibleIllus/aGen1106Dore_TheConfusionOfTongues.jpg at an organization which was the anointed of God, if at all possible. And anyway, we’ve all sinned, and have all fallen short of the glory of God, haven’t we?

.

But having said this, there comes a time when the sins of Babylon must be pointed out, because, there is a lot of confusion about just what is modern-day Babylon.

.

Yes, Satan, who comes as an angel of light, has transformed his ministers into so-called ministers of righteousness, as is revealed in 2nd Corinthians 11:14, 15. And so, far too many pulpits have become under the control of Satan. After all, where else would Satan’s “ministers of righteousness” be, except behind the pulpits of churches?

.

SATAN THE KING OF SPIRITUAL BABYLON

.

But as we explore these biblical issues, the question must be asked, “Why would we ever get the idea that Satan is the King of Babylon?”

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:Martin,_John_-_Satan_presiding_at_the_Infernal_Council_-_1824.JPG.

Listen… “That thou shalt take up this proverb against the king of Babylon, and say, How hath the oppressor ceased! the golden city ceased!…he that ruled the nations…How art thou fallen from heaven, O Lucifer, son of the morning! how art thou cut down to the ground, which didst weaken the nations! For thou hast said in thine heart, I will ascend into heaven, I will exalt my throne above the stars of God: I will sit also upon the mount of the congregation, in the sides of the north:” Isaiah 14:4, 12, 13

.

Now this above passage really ties Lucifer to Babylon, “the golden city”. And this passage apparently names the King of Babylon in this way… “The King of Babylon…O, Lucifer, son of the morning”.

.

Therefore, it is now apparent that Satan’s kingdom is Babylon.

.

But there is a religious quarter within the city walls of Babylon. And this did not escape the attention of the Protestant Reformation! After all, God’s people were persecuted by the apostate churches of Europe for many centuries.

.

And so it is no wonder that they drew pictures of the Babylon Harlot, as she rode the Antichrist Beast of Revelation, chapters 13 & 17!

SPIRITUAL BABYLON

.

Now if we turn to Revelation, Chapter 18, this harlot, Mysthttp://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:Avvakum_by_Myasoyedov.jpegery Babylon is described as a city who is drunken with the blood of the saints of God. And it is common knowledge that the apostate churches of Europe carried out an ongoing warfare against the Bible and against those who loved the Bible, for many long centuries.

.

The Apostle, Peter made reference to Babylon, in one of his epistles… “The church that is at Babylon, elected together with you, saluteth you;” 1st Peter 5:13. 

.

Of course, literal Babylon no longer existed at the time of Peter’s epistle. So Peter was referring to Satan’s kingdom as Babylon.

JEZEBEL RETURNS

.Jezebel - John Liston Byam Shaw - Wikipedia - Public Domain

In John’s letters to the 7 churches of Asia, he mentioned Jezebel… “Notwithstanding I have a few things against thee, because thou sufferest that woman Jezebel, which calleth herself a prophetess, to teach and to seduce my servants to commit fornication, and to eat things sacrificed unto idols.” Revelation 2:20

.

Now at the time of these letters, Jezebel had been dead for many long centuries. Therefore Christ was using Jezebel as a symbol of the spiritual adultery which was already beginning to creep into the churches in the Apostle, John’s day!

.

But while God doesn’t come right out and call the apostate churches Babylon, He does about everything short of calling them, “Babylon the Mystery Harlot”!

The photo to the right is the Pleiades Cluster. Does it appear to you like an angel? Well, if it does, then you are encouraged to keep reading.

.

The above two verses concerning the Pleiades  are all the Bible has to say about the Pleiades, directly. But if you will read this article, you will discover that the Pleiades represents concepts which span much of the Bible. This is partly because Pleiades is a constellation within a constellation. And this double-entendre constellation presents perhaps, a picture of the greatest truth regarding the Church, found in the Bible.

.

And The Heavens Declare.net will attempt to unravel this mysterious phenomenon in the night-sky, and will, hopefully, also interpret these two verses to show just what all this means, and how it might apply to our lives.

TWO WOMEN IN PLEIADES

.

The Pleiades: Mystery Babylon: Mother of Harlots

.

Just who are these two women? And how can this be, that nobody has ever seen the Pleiades as a constellation of a woman? This article will discuss this great paradox of these two women, found in the Pleiades, and what it means scripturally to us: we who comprise the global community of Christians.

.Captive Angel Constellation

.

Because this constellation, or should we say Constellations, plural, have very much to do with us: those of us who are living right now on the threshold of eternity. And as you might expect, the Bible holds the key to understanding all this.

THE PLEIADES: WHAT IS IT ABOUT?…

.

What is this mysterious “little” cluster of stars in the night-sky all about? Notice in the sketch to the right, that the Pleiades is shaped like the furry tassel at the tip of a lion’s tail. Here is further proof that the Pleiades is the tip of the tail of this Dragon Constellation.

.

.

And why, in the sketch does the Goodly Horse Constellation appear to be gazing intently at this Pleiades-cluster, as if mesmerized…or perhaps as if it’s something to be feared…or even with jealousy, as if perhaps, it’s something to be retrieved?

Which World Seems Bright To You?

By admin On July 17th, 2019

To most people, this present world seems bright and life seems good, to a great extent.

.

In other words, if a Christian says to an unbeliever, “You don’t have to live for, nor love this dark world of sin, because there’s a better and brighter world to come!”, that person probably doesn’t know what that Christian is talking about.

.

The problem is, that unsaved person has lived his or her entire life in this world of sin and selfishness, and has become jaded to the evil which surrounds us, and oozes out of every pore and crevice of this world of selfish lusts and desires!

.

And let’s face reality here! The fact is, our selfish lives seem normal to us! We don’t know anything else! We’ve never lived in any other world but this one. And we wake up every morning, and the sun is brightly shining, we’re refreshed from a good night’s sleep, looking forward to the prospects of the new day before us!

.

And frankly, when someone tells us that there’s a better world to come, it makes us nervous at the thought of giving up all our self-absorbed ways. We think about the selfless life of Jesus, and we think, “Man, I really don’t want to become like Him!”

.

But there’s another reason why this world seems perfectly acceptable to us.

.

And that reason is that we’ve are all been held captive under the delusive power of the spirit of antichrist, the worldly spirit of this present dark world-system…“Wherein in time past ye walked according to the course of this world, according to the prince of the power of the air, the spirit that now worketh in the children of disobedience:” Ephesians 2:2 

.

Yes, Satan, “the god of this world” enlightens our eyes with his antichrist spirit, so that we actually love our selfish lives in this world, and makes us actually nauseated at the very thought of living selflessly for Jesus! And even though this world is suffering the horrible consequences of sin and selfishness, Satan’s indwelling spirit causes us to be oblivious to all the sadness, sickness, and suffering of others!

.

Well, the Good News is, that God can give us a brand new Spirit of love, joy and peace, and contentment, beyond our wildest dreams. And when filled with that Spirit, we no longer live for, nor love this present, tragic world. Yes, this world will begin to appear dark, as our eyes begin to see the brightness of the everlasting world to come!.

.

It’s like that old song sings, “Turn your eyes upon Jesus! Look full in His wonderful face! And the things of this world will grow strangely dim, in the light of His glory and grace!”

THE PRE-TRIB RAPTURE: DARBY & SCOFIELD’S FOLLY!

.

https://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:ScofieldCI.jpg

Yes, the master-deceiver, Satan, has successfully lulled the bulk of mainstream Christians into a false sense of security, saying, “Don’t worry, be happy! You’ll be long gone when all Hell breaks loose in the world!”

.

But the Bible prophesy’s about such false teachers…“For when they shall say, Peace and safety; then sudden destruction cometh upon them, as travail upon a woman with child; and they shall not escape.” 1st Thessalonians 5:3 

.

Yes, Satan is working though many false shepherds “to deceive if possible, even the very elect!” Mark 13:22

“O My people, they which lead thee cause thee to err”

Isaiah 3:12

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:The_Late,_Great_Planet_Earth_cover.jpg.

And so, when we see all the crazy stuff going on, and all the frightening paradigm shifts taking place right now in society, this must make a lot of sincere church-goers sit up and nervously ask the question…“Am I really gonna get raptured out of here, before ‘all Hell’ breaks loose? Or have I been deceived by my teachers, because it sure looks like ‘all Hell’ is already beginning to break out!?”

.

God has warned us that the deceptions would be so close to truth, that Satan would, “if possible, deceive even the very Elect!” (see Matthew 24:24 & Mark 13:22)

Habakkuk 1:9

.

Yes, it appears as if Satan and his vast armies are now on the march! And it seems as if he is rapidly morphing society into a brand new totalitarian world-system!

.

Multitudes are gnashing on their teeth against anyone else who opposes their totalitarian ideals about what they want this society to morph into. And their angry rhetoric is getting louder. And a few of them are even beginning to physically assault those who stand in their way and assault those who protest against their fascist-like ideals.

“And judgment is turned away backward”

Isaiah 59:14

https://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:Not-so-blindfolded_05.svg

.

And even in our court system, some activist judges are turning a blind eye to truth and justice, handing down wrong decisions, according to their own personal social/political biases.

.

And the following verse literally foretold of this very day of unjust laws…“And judgment is turned away backward, and justice standeth afar off: for truth is fallen in the street, and equity cannot enter…” Isaiah 59:14

.

Yes, less and less are Christians able to depend on today’s court system to render them justice: society is becoming more and more  bigoted and biased against all those who oppose the current-day so-called political/social correctness!

“And that no man might buy or sell, save he that had the mark…”

Revelation 13:17 https://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:Disapprove.jpg

.

And even the private business giants are beginning to capitulate to this growing totalitarianism, realizing that they must “get on board” or suffer the consequences!

.

And so in order to appease the loud totalitarian voices, many banks and corporations are now beginning to cut off the ability for certain dissenters to buy or sell.

“…that bitter…nation, which shall march through the breadth of the land”

Habakkuk 1:6

.

https://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:Antifa_@_Trump_in_Phoenix_8-22-17.jpgIt’s frightening and unbelievable to behold the growing movement in which a great portion of the secular society and their leadership are calling for the silencing of all those who hold to different beliefs and values! And it’s even more remarkable that such a large percentage of the general populace are so willing and eager to stamp out freedom of speech!

.

Just listen to their drumbeats as they get louder and more hateful and increasingly militant against their supposed political and religious enemies!

.

It makes us very nervous when we hear protesters chant their anti-Christian mantra…“BRING BACK THE LIONS! BRING BACK THE LIONS!”

.

Revelation, Chapter 13 long foretold that this end-time totalitarian takeover would eventually happen…“And he (the false Prophet) causeth all, both small and great, rich and poor, free and bond, to receive a mark in their right hand, or in their foreheads: And that no man might buy or sell, save he that had the mark, or the name of the beast, or the number of his name.” Revelation 13:16, 17

.

This above passage speaks of a totalitarian society in which “no man might buy or sell, unless he has the mark, or the name of the Beast, or the number of his name”.

.

Well, it looks as if that day is just over the horizon, or perhaps has already begun!

.

ABOVE PICTURE: Mark of the beast – pub. dom. – Wikipedia

.

.

.

.

.

“Buy the truth, and sell it not”

Proverbs 23:23

.

Now. let it be stated, that many Bible teachers and students have held to the belief that “buying and selling” has to do with the cutting off of all preaching of the true Gospel of Jesus Christ.

.

But many more believe that this passage refers to the actual inability to purchase or sell food, clothing, housing, etc…

.

The fact is, both schools of thought are probably correct. In other words, the true Gospel will probably be censored in the near future. But also, those Christians who stand firm against the wiles of the Devil, will find it all but impossible to buy or sell in the market place.

.

.

.

.

.

“Blow ye the trumpet…for the day of the LORD cometh, for it is nigh at hand;”

Joel 2:1

.

Well, the Good News is, there is still time to prepare for this coming tempest. And there is still time to preach the true Gospel, warning the public to “flee from the wrath to come!” Matthew 3:7 & Luke 3:7

.

Yes, those who still have “an ear to hear”, should pray for Divine Wisdom to know how best to sound “the trumpet, the alarm of war”. Jeremiah 4:19

The devil made me do it, part? Satan’s Monster-Making-Machinery

By admin On June 24th, 2019

There are a number of foreign countries in which people are not safe from harm. Especially persons with a political bias which doesn’t match the politics of the controlling government of that country.

.

.

.

.

.

.

THE WESTERN NATIONS

.

However, in the western nations, which once lovingly embraced the Christian Reformation, there remains lingering Christian ethic and values, which still makes murder and other sins unpopular.

.

.

.

.

.

.

.

But just prior to Christ’s Return, the “god of this world”, Satan, has been permitted by the true God of Heaven, to make this world into a veritable mind-control center. And via the new high-tech devices and other media, he is now able to fully indoctrinate the minds of the unsuspecting multitudes.

.

This has been prophesied of, in Revelation 13, concerning the image of the Beast…“And he (the False Prophet 2nd Beast) had power to give life unto the image of the (1st) beast, that the image of the (1st) beast should both speak, and cause that as many as would not worship the image of the beast should be killed.” Revelation 13:15 

.

Yes, 24/7 365, Satan is now able to brainwash great multitudes around the world: all those who now have free access to television radio and internet, etc….

.

.

.

.

.

.

.

Now this website has already spoken ad-nauseam concerning the various sins which television, radio and Internet can and does instill into the hearts of humans without them being aware…“Be not deceived: evil communications corrupt good manners.” 1st Corinthians 15:33

.

Here is revealed that we are not impervious to the corrupting influence which these devices render.  

.

.

.

.

.

.

.

But one area of great concern, which this website has not greatly dealt with, is concerning the promotion of violence among young people, and even among many older citizens as well.

.

Yes, violence can be seen everywhere, anytime, via the various high-tech devices. Television, radio shows, movies, Internet, video games, and even today’s music often carry with them, a form and message of violence. And young impressionable kids can be seen walking down the street or driving in their cars, often listening to very violent music. And when they get home many turn on the TV or go on to the internet or video games, and see and listen and engage in even more violence! And this constant 24/7/365 drumbeat of violence eventually deeply engraves Satan’s hateful and violent character upon the young hearts and minds of millions!

.

.

.

.

.

.

.

Now the reason for bringing this up is that God’s people, God’s remnant people, will soon be thrust into “a time of trouble, such as never was since there was a nation even to that same time”, on such a massive, even a pandemic scale!

.

And in that momentous hour, Satan must awake and marshal his vast armies of indoctrinated lost souls, to carry out his last assault! And in order to do so, his army of these high-tech-created-monsters must be ready, willing and able to torture, and kill!

.

And it is very conceivable that by this ongoing grooming of the young people of the world via these various electronic media, when the hour is just right, this army will be ready to stand up, and eagerly engage in the most heinous and egregious and unthinkable acts of violence and murder and torture without the slightest twinge of conscience, nor the slightest regard for human life!

.

.

.

.

.

.

.

But the next obvious question is, “Just who will be Satan’s objects of hatred?”

.

Well, considering the growing societal hatred against Jews and Christians, we might conclude that these two groups will be the primary targets of those horrific crimes.

.

.

.

.

.

.

.

Now the prophet Habakkuk prophesied that there is coming an hour in which God’s people must flee…“And the LORD answered me, and said, Write the vision, and make it plain upon tables, that he may run that readeth it.” Habakkuk 2:2 

.

This above prophecy of Habakkuk agrees and aligns itself with the Gospels…“But when ye shall see the abomination of desolation, spoken of by Daniel the prophet, standing where it ought not, (let him that readeth understand,) then let them that be in Judaea flee to the mountains” Mark 13:14 

.

This above prophecy from Mark’s Gospel, is written in veiled language but nevertheless is for the Church today!

.

.

.

.

.

.

“Watchman, what of the night?”

Isaiah 21:11

.

And those who are wise will take inventory of all the different ways in which Satan is now preparing this world for the final conflict. And these wise watchmen will rise to the occasion, sounding the clarion call to God’s sleeping saints, to wake up and to get their spiritual armor on, and to stand in the great battle between the armies of Heaven and Hell (“Hell” being this world).

.

.

.

.

.

.

“GOOD NEW FROM A FAR COUNTRY

Proverbs 25:25

.

Well, if there is any Good News amidst all this unnerving, even frightening bad report, it is that God assures us…“But where sin abounded, grace did much more abound:” Romans 5:20

.

Yes, as the grim world situation continues to worsen, the grace of God toward His trembling followers will continue to abound more and more!

.

.

.

.

.

And God’s people will learn by necessity, to stay well hidden in His secret pavilion…

For in the time of trouble

He shall hide me in His pavilion:

in the secret of His tabernacle

shall He hide me;

He shall set me up upon a Rock.

And now shall mine head be lifted up

above mine enemies round about me…

“Thou art my hiding place;

Thou shalt preserve me from trouble;

Thou shalt compass me about

with songs of deliverance. Selah.”

Psalm 27:5, 6 & Psalm 32:7  

.

With such promises as these, how could we possibly lose or even despair?

.

And history has shown that immorality is a great signal, and that it won’t be long until that nation begins to decay and crumble.

.

It is the kiss of death for any nation to lose its moral compass!

“But Evil Men and Seducers Shall Wax Worse and Worse…”

2nd Timothy 3:13

.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:Thanksgiving-Brownscombe.jpgBut what most citizens of any immoral nation do not realize is that the abyss of sin is a bottomless pit…“And he opened the bottomless pit; and there arose a smoke out of the pit, as the smoke of a great furnace; and the sun and the air were darkened by reason of the smoke of the pit.” Revelation 9:2 

.

This is why we are now witnessing our current western societies sinking deeper and deeper into immorality and self-destruction.

.

Yes, those very nations who once lovingly embraced the Christian Reformation are now suffering the results of their turning away from that great Christian revival.

.

.

.

One area in which society is now on a downward spiral is concerning the fast-changing attitude on abortion.

.

What most people are not aware of, is that abortion has been performed by doctors since the 1800’s, in which abortion was actually legal.

.

But just look at the current stance on abortion! We have seen the attitude concerning abortion make a rapid downward progression. Yes, just a few decades ago, abortion was reluctantly approved by this promiscuous society, which called for abortions to be “few and rare”.

.

But as of late, society has changed its stance, now calling abortion, “a good thing”. And now our society is even calling for partial birth abortion!

.

But it won’t stop there! No, as this nation sinks downward into the bottomless pit of sin, we can expect to see even more heinous degrees of murder of this type.

.

A number of times, the Bible even prophesy’s about cannibalism…by parents…eating their own children!

.

“The hands of the pitiful women have sodden their own children: they were their meat in the destruction of the daughter of my people.” Lamentations 4:10

.

Yes, believe it or not, even now, there are a few societal leaders wanting to have a conversation about cannibalism!

.

The Good News is that there is still time to escape the awful judgment which is fast coming down on this present-day culture.

.

Every man, woman, and child is highly urged and warned to flee from the wrath to come upon this mischievous and promiscuous society, while there is still time!

LOCATING THIS CONSTELLATION GROUP…

.

Valley of Decision + O Destroying Mountain Constellation Group

.

Look eastward in the early summer through fall. Find the Cassiopeia Constellation. Cassiopeia is the Mount of Blessing. In the sketch, it is the farthest mountain to the left. In the sky, it is the northern-most of these three mountains when facing eastward. It resembles a pyramid.

.

Then find the second pyramid to its right (south).

.

Then go a little further south to the next third pyramid. The third snow-cap is the Destroying Mountain Constellation.

.

These three pyramids are the snow-capped portion of these three mountains in this sketch. (of course, you won’t see the snow-caps in the sky. They are just an embellishment in this sketch to present a concept-EDITOR).

.

 

.

THE VALLEY OF DECISION CONSTELLATION GROUP.

Valley of Decision & O Destroying Mtn. Constellations

.

They appear in mid-summer in the eastern skies in pre-dawn hours. These are made of Cassiopeia (mount on left), and various stars from the Andromeda Constellation (valley) Pegasus (Mount of Cursing (middle mount) & Destroying Mount (right)), and Pisces (Broad Way to Hell). The galaxy which appears to be climbing the Mountain of Blessing is the Andromeda Galaxy

.

The above Wikipedia star-chart shows this amazing constellation group as it appears from June to fall, just prior to the winter constellation group. Actually, these Valley of Decision Constellations appear in early summer in the pre-dawn hours. (Editor of this website has sketched in this constellation group onto this above Wikipedia star-chart.)
