http://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:Burning_Man_2013_Photo_chapel,_The_wedding_party!_(9660390094).jpgWhen any society begins dabbling in sexual immorality, it is a fearful sign and urgent warning, that such a nation will soon slip deeper and deeper into the abyss of sin.

.

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.)

Job Chapter 20

By admin On May 10th, 2019

Job 20:4  Knowest thou not this of old, since man was placed upon earth,
Job 20:5  That the triumphing of the wicked is short, and the joy of the hypocrite but for a moment?
Job 20:6  Though his excellency mount up to the heavens, and his head reach unto the clouds;
Job 20:7  Yet he shall perish for ever like his own dung: they which have seen him shall say, Where is he?
Job 20:8  He shall fly away as a dream, and shall not be found: yea, he shall be chased away as a vision of the night.
Job 20:9  The eye also which saw him shall see him no more; neither shall his place any more behold him.

 

One very vocal radio Bible teacher insists upon the millennia-old doctrine of Eternal Torment. But in order to cling to this old Catholic church-doctrine, Bible teachers must ignore or spin away the many verses and passages which explain Hell as the grave.

.

Truly, the entire world has been thoroughly groomed to understand Hell according to the ancient Babylonian version of Hell, being an actual place in which conscious humans will be tortured throughout all eternity.

.

But for those who wish to re-examine this misunderstood doctrine, gaining a balanced understanding, the Book of Job must be one of the places in which the Babylonian Eternal Torment doctrine is demolished.

.

Now this website has highlighted Job, Chapter 3, which says…

.

But Job is not finished with this subject. Because Chapter 20 has more to say regarding Hell being the grave…

.

Now, the Bible does refer to Hell as a place of torment. But that torment is not in some underground torture chamber, nor is it eternal. Listen…Pro_15:24  The way of life is above to the wise, that he may depart from hell beneath.

.

This above verse is speaking of Hell in terms of being this world.

.

Well, there are various devotionals which discuss this truth, and the Reader is encouraged to go through the various Eternal Torment devotionals to gain a proper understanding.

.

Nevertheless Job, Chapter 20 repeatedly speaks of the fate of the wicked in terms of nothingness.

straw-man in political radio stations

By admin On May 6th, 2019

One so-called Christian radio talk show spend a lot of time discussing politics and government. And they create a straw- man argument about whether or not to obey an evil government. In other words, it is either obery or don’t obey. There is no middle ground. But the truth is, a Christian will obery in all things lawful, and disobey any requirement that would cause him or her to transgress the Bible.

ellen quote 911 comment on Govt unable to solve problems

By admin On April 24th, 2019

There are not many, even among educators and statesmen, who comprehend the causes that underlie the present state of society. Those who hold the reins of government are not able to solve the problem of moral corruption, poverty, pauperism, and increasing crime. They are struggling in vain to place business operations on a more secure basis. If men would give more heed to the teaching of God’s word, they would find a solution of the problems that perplex them.

The Two Spirits In The World, Part 5: “Flat-Earth ‘Truthers’, & Such!”

To read Part 1 of this series, click here…November 23 (The Two Spirits In The World)

.

.

.

.

TWO SPIRITS IN THE WORLD

.

In Part 1 of this series on “The Two Spirits in the World” (click here), it was established that there are two ruling spirits in the world: “The Spirit of Truth”, and “the spirit of error”.

.

One Spirit is ruled from Heaven, while the other is ruled from Hell (“Hell” being the spiritual darkness of this world).

.

And so, either you are indwelt by one spirit or the other.

.

There’s no third alternative!

.

There’s no neutral ground in this world!

.

You are either indwelt by the Spirit of God, or you are indwelt by, “the prince of the power of the air, the spirit that now worketh in the children of disobedience:” Ephesians 2:2

FALSE BRETHREN

Galatians 2:4

.

Oh yes, there are many people who make a false conversion to Christ, and yet are still indwelt by the antichrist spirit of the world!

.

And that subject will be dealt with in tomorrow’s devotional.

.

And with all deceivableness…in them that perish; because they received not the love of the truth, that they might be saved. And for this cause God shall send them strong delusion, that they should believe a lie:”

2nd Thessalonians 2:10, 11

.

One great arena in which it is now very easy to see the blatant hypocrisy of mankind is in the world of politics. The war between the right and left has heated up to the point that lies are told and false accusations are being hurled about, each and every day!

.

And it doesn’t take a genius to realize that “Yellow Journalism” has become the industry standard for the major media outlets, as they collude with their favorite political faction in spreading those lies, half-truths, false accusations, and cover-ups which go out to the general public on a daily basis.

.

And the general public, for the most part, seems willingly deluded, as they swallow down all this blatant dishonesty, as long as those obvious lies and deceptions align with and bolster their own political biases!

.

.

Another area in which mankind’s self-deception really shows up in various conspiracy theories. For example, there is a large group of people who actually believe the earth to be flat. By taking some Bible verses out of context and ignoring the scientific realities, this self-deceived club of “Flat-Earth Truthers” have  actually convinced themselves that the earth is flat!

.

Yes, this and many other similar and ridiculous conspiracy theories, only reveal just how incredibly self-deceived that we humans can become!

.

Listen to Scripture…”But evil men and seducers shall wax worse and worse, deceiving, and being deceived.” 2nd Timothy 3:13

.

And this above verse reveals that in this very day, men’s own evil hearts will deceive themselves. And to believe such utter nonsense that many conspiracy theories are, shows just how demonically possessed the human mind can become, when NOT under the protective power of the Holy Spirit of Truth!

.

.

.

.

.

.

“The heart is deceitful above all things”

.

Even one the world’s poets wrote the line, “A man hears what he wants to hear and disregards the rest”.

.

Of course, this saying is merely a man-conceived idea. But it nevertheless aligns with what the Bible reveals: “…yea, let God be true, but every man a liar…” Romans 3:4

.

Yes, we are a world of liars, each and every one of us, even as the Lord says, through the prophet, Jeremiah…”The heart (the mind) is deceitful above all things, and desperately wicked: who can know it?” Jeremiah 17:9 (parenthetical comment by website Editor)

.

Here again, the Bible further confirms that every man’s heart is “deceitful above all things, and desperately wicked: who can know it?”
.

.

.

WHY DOES SATAN RAISE UP THESE GROUPS?

To Confuse: Satan fills the world with many false ideas, which only further confuses mankind, making it almost impossible to see the light of Truth found in the Scriptures.

To Side-track: And this master-deceiver invents false ideologies and various areas of intrigue in hopes of consuming man’s thoughts, thus sidetracking humans away from their duty to search God’s Word on a daily, (even an hourly) basis.

To Deceive & Destroy: Yes, Satan has done an incredible job of deceiving and destroying the souls of unbelievers (and many church-goers) with his false doctrines and false ideologies.

To Create Skepticism: And because the world is absolutely filled to the brim with lies and deceits, the hearts of human have become jaded and unbelieving and skeptical, even when the truth is spoken!

To Create Animosity: animosity of one group against the other group: With all the countless political/social/religious factions in the world, Satan has successfully created division between these groups, causing great confusion, animosity, and distrust in this hardhearted and stiff-necked, “World of Lies”!

.

.

.

“Come Out of Her, My People!”

Revelation 18:4

.

But amidst this very bad report, there nevertheless is some extremely Good News! Yes, even though the hour is late, God has graciously allowed us deceived ones, time to come out of the City of Confusion, Babylon (Babylon the world, and Babylon the apostate church-world!)

.

And so, we must get down on our spiritual knees and plead with God to deliver us from the evil lies of Satan, as we humbly begin to search the Scriptures daily, for the truth which will by-and-by make us free!

.

And then we can confidently exclaim…

.

“…by the word of Thy lips

I have kept me from the paths of the destroyer….

O God…deliver me from the deceitful and unjust man…

O send out Thy light and Thy truth:

let them lead me;

let them bring me unto Thy holy hill,

and to Thy tabernacles…”

Psalm 17:4 & 43:1, 3

REVELATION 12 DRAGON

.

Next is the Revelation 12 Dragon: “And there appeared another wonder (sign) in heaven; and behold a great red dragon, having seven heads and ten horns, and seven crowns upon his heads. And his tail drew the third part of the stars of heaven, and did cast them to the earth: and the dragon stood before the woman which was ready to be delivered, for to devour her child as soon as it was born.” Revelation 12:3, 4.

.

Of course, this dragon represents Satan as he battles against Heaven. And as you can see, this dragon is spewing a wave of water from his mouth. This also is from Revelation 12… 

.

“And the serpent cast out of his mouth water as a flood after the woman, that he might cause her to be carried away of the flood.” Revelation 12:15

MICHAEL, THE SOLDIER

.

Last is Michael the Soldier, who battles against the Dragon: “And there was war in heaven: Michael and his angels fought against the dragon; and the dragon fought and his angels, And prevailed not; neither was their place found any more in heaven.” Revelation 12:7, 8.

.

Contrary to popular opinion, Michael here represents Christ as He battles this dragon. This will be adequately proven in this article and in various other sections of this website. No, Christ is not merely an angel. Christ is very eternal God. But Christ is often represented as various entities, such as a rose, or a burning bush, as well as many other things in the Bible.

We Wrestle Not Against Flesh & Blood! Part 8, “Political Correctness: Christo-phobia?”

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

.

.

.

.

.

https://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:Shiite_Muslims_executed_by_ISIS.pngWith all the politically-correct phobias these days, you would think that Christianity would likewise get their own phobic status.

.

http://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:ISIL_Execution_of_man_September_2014.jpg Perhaps it could be called, “Christo-phobia”.

.

Yes, with the absolute hatred and persecution and murders of Christians throughout most of the New Testament era and the current Christian persecution in the Middle East (and even a growing antipathy here in the Western nations), you would think that today’s Christianity would qualify for a politically protected status.

But alas, Christianity does not qualify for the seal of approval from the overlords of political-correctness (whoever they are!).

.

.

.

.

.

.

MANY CHRISTIANS DELUSIONAL?

.

Even some self-appointed authority wrote a rather ambiguous article about Christophobia in Wikipedia, writing in somewhat double-speak, that it was “usually” the product of a delusional class of Christians who imagine themselves the victims of such persecution…

http://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:Anger_during_a_protest_by_David_Shankbone.jpg

.

Listen…

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

“Christophobia is the irrational fear or hatred of Christianity or Christians. While Christophobia is a real thing, it is usually used as a snarl word by some Christians with a persecution complex and (at most) only a passing familiarity with reality. There’s probably a good overlap with the people who claim there’s a liberal bias in the media. For whatever reason, the term hasn’t really caught on well as more verbose alternatives such as ‘anti-Christian bias.'”

.

Can you believe this guy? Does he have any idea of how many Christians are currently dying for their faith around the world?

.

Does this guy think that other “politically-correct phobias” are likewise not real, as he accuses “some Christians with a persecution complex” of being somewhat deluded? Probably not!

Satan, who controls the media, to a great extent is purposely limiting the overseas news reports, in a successful effort to keep Americans and American Christians in the dark, as to the growing intolerance and violence against Christianity in other nations.

“We wrestle…against…forces…spiritual wickedness in high places”

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

.

But, as Christians all know (or should know), the Bible reveals the true source of our troubles…”Put on the whole armour of God, that ye may be able to stand https://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:Christianandapollyon.jpgagainst the wiles of the devil. For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places.” Ephesians 6:11   

.

Yes, it’s not actually the people of this world who are self-inspired to hate and persecute Christians. No, but rather, Satan, “the god of this world” is the true progenitor and overlord of political-correctness!

TODAY’S FEATURED HEAVENLY SIGN

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.

Ellen White concerning endtimes

By admin On April 2nd, 2019

Of course, most people are not aware that Ellen White made some very amazing predictions about the end-times.

.

For one thing, She accurately predicted that the United States would eventually becomes the enemy of free speech, which only now is beginning to occur. She even said that it was unbelievable that the very nation that was founded upon the principle of liberty and freedom of expression would eventually become the enemy of those principles!

.

She also predicted that “lying signs and wonders” would eventually be seen on a grand scale in the apostate church-world, which only began 6 decades after her death.

.

And amazingly, her writings warned Christians about the soon-coming 1906 earthquake. just a few years and months prior to that horrific disaster.

.

But perhaps, her most amazing prediction concerned New York City…

On one occasion, when in New York City, I was in the night season called upon to behold buildings rising story after story toward heaven. These buildings were warranted to be fireproof, and they were erected to glorify their owners and builders. Higher and still higher these buildings rose, and in them the most costly material was used.  9T 12.1

.

Isn’t her description of these immense buildings a very accurate description?…(I was in the night season called upon to behold buildings rising story after story toward heaven. These buildings were warranted to be fireproof, and they were erected to glorify their owners and builders. Higher and still higher these buildings rose…)

Now listen to her description of the fiery inferno…The scene that next passed before me was an alarm of fire. Men looked at the lofty and supposedly fire-proof buildings and said: “They are perfectly safe.” But these buildings were consumed as if made of pitch. The fire engines could do nothing to stay the destruction. The firemen were unable to operate the engines. 9T 13.1

.

All of these statements were fulfilled on 911, when the Twin Towers crumbled in the midst of a fiery inferno. Although the many brave firemen rushed to the scene, they were crushed in those buildings without any hope of saving lives or stopping the intense inferno. And her description of that awful event was so true…”But these buildings were consumed as if made of pitch”!

Now, one remarkable aspect to this, her prediction, is that her statement about this dream concerning 911, was later put by publishers in a series of compilations, just happening to be put in Book 9, page 11.

.

Just a coincidence?

.

And even more remarkable is that she wrote about this premonition in late 1901, exactly 100 years prior to 911: a 100th predictive “pre-anniversary” to that horrific and apocalyptic tragedy!

.

But this is only part of the story, concerning Ellen White’s predictive dream about 911.

.

The rest of the story is found just a little below her description of that 911 dream…

.

.

.

We are living in the time of the end. The fast-fulfilling signs of the times declare that the coming of Christ is near at hand. The days in which we live are solemn and important. The Spirit of God is gradually but surely being withdrawn from the earth. Plagues and judgments are already falling upon the despisers of the grace of God. The calamities by land and sea, the unsettled state of society, the alarms of war, are portentous. They forecast approaching events of the greatest magnitude. 9T 11.1

The agencies of evil are combining their forces and consolidating. They are strengthening for the last great crisis. Great changes are soon to take place in our world, and the final movements will be rapid ones. 9T 11.2

The condition of things in the world shows that troublous times are right upon us. The daily papers are full of indications of a terrible conflict in the near future. Bold robberies are of frequent occurrence. Strikes are common. Thefts and murders are committed on every hand. Men possessed of demons are taking the lives of men, women, and little children. Men have become infatuated with vice, and every species of evil prevails. 9T 11.3

The enemy has succeeded in perverting justice and in filling men’s hearts with the desire for selfish gain.

[Even the church-world has joined in the mad rush for money and self-glory!]

.

“Justice standeth afar off: for truth is fallen in the street, and equity cannot enter.” Isaiah 59:14

[Just look at all the crazy laws now being enacted, and all the unjust court decisions. Behold how the leaders of the land are calling for lawless disregard of the laws of this nation, merely for profit and power! This above verse from Isaiah is now finding its grand fulfillment!]

Now listen again to Ellen White’s recounting of God’s warning from Heaven…”I am instructed that when the Lord’s time comes, should no change have taken place in the hearts of proud, ambitious human beings, men will find that the hand that had been strong to save will be strong to destroy. No earthly power can stay the hand of God. No material can be used in the erection of buildings that will preserve them from destruction when God’s appointed time comes to send retribution on men for their disregard of His law and for their selfish ambition. 9T 13.2″

The Scriptures describe the condition of the world just before Christ’s second coming….[This entire article by Ellen White should be carefully read and fearfully heeded. Even her most ardent critics cannot deny that what is written in this chapter is now finding its dramatic fulfillment!]

Now listen to Ellen White’s prediction concerning the futility of trying to solve our great problems, without a deep repentance and turning away from sin in these last days…”There are not many, even among educators and statesmen, who comprehend the causes that underlie the present state of society. Those who hold the reins of government are not able to solve the problem of moral corruption, poverty, pauperism, and increasing crime. They are struggling in vain to place business operations on a more secure basis. If men would give more heed to the teaching of God’s word, they would find a solution of the problems that perplex them. 9T 13.3

.

Yes, the only hope and solution to the current pandemic crisis which now is occurring is to turn back to Jesus with all our hearts! Man is utterly incapable of solving our great problems, without the help of Heaven!

Well, perhaps the Reader of this article is too young to know about the movie which immortalized those words, “There’s no place like home!”

THE WIZARD OF OZ

.

And for those who are too young to know, that movie, The Wizard of Oz, was a blockbuster https://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:WIZARD_OF_OZ_ORIGINAL_POSTER_1939.jpgmega-movie starring a fresh-faced young lady named Judy Garland, who played Dorothy of Kansas. And in this incredible movie, young Dorothy was taken up in a Midwest tornado-whirlwind, soon finding herself in a colorful wonderland in which she and three fellow seekers begin a journey to find The Wizard of Oz, in hopes of asking him to give to each of these four sojourners, that one thing which was lacking in each of their respective lives.

.

Dorothy, of course, was wanting the Wizard to help her find her way home, back to Kansas.

.

And in the end of this charming movie, Dorothy is told to keep repeating the words, “There’s no place like home, there’s no place like home…” And lo and behold, when she opens her eyes, she finds herself back home in Kansas, now appreciating her home and humble circumstances like she never had done so before!

http://simple.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:Pilgrim%27s_Progress_2.JPGSUSPICIOUS RESEMBLANCE TO PILGRIM’S PROGRESS

.

The point is, that this movie which captured the hearts of several generations, had a very suspicious resemblance to the book, Pilgrim’s Progress, by John Bunyan.

.

Yes, The Wizard of Oz was obviously, the secular world’s answer to that incredible allegorical tale by Bunyan, which captured the hearts of, and encouraged millions of Christian pilgrims since it was first penned in the mid-seventeenth century!

.

WHICH WORLD WILL YOU CHOOSE?

.

The big difference between those two tales, is that in Bunyan’s book, the focus was on the Pilgrim’s sojourn to the Celestial City (Heaven).

.

On the other hand, The Wizard of Oz movie only proved that this present world is the best place to be.

.

http://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:Dear_Santa_Claus.jpgSANTA CLAUSE & THE WIZARD BOTH INSPIRE UNBELIEF

.

And just like that old mythical character, “Santa Clause”, The Wizard of Oz likewise had a very suspicious resemblance to God.

.

Of course, when Dorothy’s dog pulled back the Wizard’s curtain, it was discovered that he was just a mere man, fraudulently posing as a Wizard.

“Look Up; Lift Up Your Heads!”

Luke 21:28

.

Well, that mega-movie is a very great example of how Satan masterfully uses the various media to get people’s eyes focused downward.

.

On the other hand, Bunyan’s tale, Pilgrim’s Progress, got its readers eyes focused upward, to Heaven!

.

Yes, even movie-goers cannot escape the battle between Heaven and Hell (this present world). And the Wizard of Oz has been one of Satan’s most successful Hollywood productions, for the above stated reason.

Ephesians 2:2, 3

.

Oh yes, Satan is very subtle! He was subtle when he first deceived Mankind in the Garden, and he is even more subtle today, in the ways that he deceives the world’s citizens!

.

The Bible declares that, “Satan…deceives the whole world” Revelation 12:9.

.

Yes, this low-profile deceiver even has seemingly erased himself out of the minds of men, causing mankind to doubt his very existence!

ATHEISM, THE 6TH HEAD OF ANTICHRIST

And as charming as this movie was, it nevertheless was a very subtle assault by that unseen Master Deceiver Antichrist spirit, to further cause movie-goers to disbelieve in the existence of God.

https://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:Hearst_1906_Wizard_of_Ooze.jpg

.

It exposed the great Wizard of Oz as a complete fraud!

.

Yes, Satan has used the modern media to convince much of this world that God is nothing more than a mythical character, thus plunging a great portion of the earth’s inhabitants into a hopeless prison called “Atheism”, now deceiving them into thinking that there is no way of escape out of this sad and hopeless world of death!

Yes, “Somewhere over the rainbow, way up high”, there actually is a land which is infinitely more wonderful than anything which storytellers nor movie producers could ever possibly imagine!

.

And that Promised Land is waiting for the arrival of all Pilgrims who are weary of this sorrowful world of sickness, death, and hopelessness!

.

And the Reader is encouraged to also join the exodus out of this “City of Destruction” world, and begin the Pilgrim’s sojourn to that Land in which there will be no more sorrow, nor suffering, nor death, nor crying.

.

And while lying in bed, one might even close their eyes, look up, and keep repeating the phrase, “There’s no place like home in Heaven! There’s no place like home in Heaven…”

“And there appeared a great wonder in heaven; a woman…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…And the serpent cast out of his mouth water as a flood after the woman, that he might cause her to be carried away of the flood.” Revelation 12:1, 3, 15

WAVE of WATER CONSTELLATION

winter four constellations

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.)

TOMORROW…

1Pe_2:8  And a stone of stumbling, and a rock of offence, even to them which stumble at the word, being disobedient: whereunto also they were appointed.

By admin On March 4th, 2019

1Pe_2:8  And a stone of stumbling, and a rock of offence, even to them which stumble at the word, being disobedient: whereunto also they were appointed.

.

What we must understand is that the entire bible is about the Gospel of Jesus, even as it is written…Luk 24:27  And beginning at Moses and all the prophets, He (Jesus) expounded unto them (His disciples) in all the scriptures the things concerning himself.

.

And so, this verse and other similar verse reveal to us that the Bible concerns some aspect of the Gospel of Jesus.

.

There are many who “stumble at the Word”, not perceiving that all those strange Old Testament stories were allegories concerning Christ, and His Gospel.

.

And so, when we encounter some strange account, such as the true historical account of the last night of Sodom, in which Lot offered his daughters to the Sodomites, who wanted to abuse the two heaven-sent visitors, Lot’s divine guests, we must attempt to find the underlying meaning of that story. In other words, the story of Lot and his exodus from that wicked city just prior to its destruction is a picture of some aspect of the Gospel.

.

But there are those who stumble at the word, who become offended, saying, “How could this supposed man of God throw his daughters to those horrible Sodomites!?”

.

But the fact is, the Bible is a double-edged sword! And God has purposely written His Word to save or to destroy…Heb_4:12  For the word of God is quick, and powerful, and sharper than any twoedged sword, piercing even to the dividing asunder of soul and spirit, and of the joints and marrow, and is a discerner of the thoughts and intents of the heart.

JESUS WEPT

By admin On March 3rd, 2019

Lam 3:48  Mine eye runneth down with rivers of water for the destruction of the daughter of My people.

.

This verse from Lamentations refers to Old Testament House of Israel as “the daughter of My people”. And the Lord, through Jeremiah reveals His sorrow over His apostate congregation, who valued the things of this life more than the things of Heaven…”Will ye steal, murder, and commit adultery, and swear falsely, and burn incense unto Baal, and walk after other gods whom ye know not;” Jeremiah 7:9

.

But today’s church-world is by no means impervious to this same condemnation which the Old Testament people of God were guilty of!

.

No, just listen to Paul’s forecast of the end-time church-world…”For the time will come when they will not endure sound doctrine; but after their own lusts shall they heap to themselves teachers, having itching ears; And they shall turn away their ears from the truth, and shall be turned unto fables.” 2nd Timothy 4:3, 4

.

This above passage speaks of a church-world steeped in worldly pursuits, earthly riches, and filled many unbiblical additions to the purity of the Gospel.

.

Well, this little article does not have time to enumerate all these pollutions which have entered God’s house. But there is no shortage of articles which do define exactly why God is unhappy with His professed people.

.

Bu the focus of today’s devotional is to stress the sorrow which God has over this apostate condition.

.

Listen to how we are to relate to the Old Testament…”1Co_10:11  Now all these things happened unto them (the Old Testament people of God) for ensamples: and they are written for our admonition, upon whom the ends of the world are come.”

.

Yes, many or perhaps most Bible teachers today have the inability to relate all those Old Testament stories and prophecies to today’s church-world.

.

The Apostle, Paul, upbraided the churches of Galatia for not being able to discern the spiritual meaning behind the various stories in the Old Testament. And then he went on to reveal to them that there were actually two spiritual Jerusalems…al 4:25  For this Agar is mount Sinai in Arabia, and answereth to Jerusalem which now is, and is in bondage with her children.
Gal 4:26  But Jerusalem which is above is free, which is the mother of us all.

.

And so, because New Testament believers, both Jew and Gentile are children of their mother, the Jerusalem which is above. But the apostate portion of God’s professed people are of the “Jerusalem which now is, and is in bondage with her children.” Galatians 4:25

.

And so, when reading such prophecies as Lamentations, the New Testament Bible student needs to understand that God is not only weeping for His Old Testament assembly, but also for His New Testament assembly, equally as much. Even the true worshipers of God have been so corrupted by all the antichrist deceivers within the walls of Sion, that we too have fallen from God’s approval. And He weeps for us too!

.

But God will still seek out His sheep… “…and will deliver them out of all places where they have been scattered in the cloudy and dark day.” Ezekiel 34:12

.

The time which is just before us will be a difficult experience, to put it mildly.

.

But God must remove His sheep from the fallen and apostate conditions which have greatly corrupted His people, rendering them greatly ineffective in their service to Him.

.

And our apostasy has caused the following prophecy to be fulfilled in those of us who are living today…”We have been with child, we have been in pain, we have as it were brought forth wind; we have not wrought any deliverance in the earth; neither have the inhabitants of the world fallen.” Isaiah 26:18

.

Yes, God weeps over His people today. We have not brought forth Christ, neither have will caused the inhabitants of the world to fall to their knees and confess, “that God is in you of a truth.” 1st Corinthians 14:25
.

But the hour has come when it may be said… “Come, My people, enter thou into thy chambers, and shut thy doors about thee: hide thyself as it were for a little moment, until the indignation be overpast.” Isaiah 26:20

.

Yes, the hour is come that we must hide ourselves from the approaching storm!

.

And even though God has been weeping for His apostate people, He is certainly not going to give up on His faithful one, in spite of our sleepy-eyed lukewarm service of the past!

.

No, “the LORD cometh out of His place to punish the inhabitants of the earth for their iniquity: the earth also shall disclose her blood, and shall no more cover her slain.” Isaiah 26:21

.

And though the days ahead may be difficult, we can rejoice along with the Psalmist…”He that goeth forth and weepeth, bearing precious seed, shall doubtless come again with rejoicing, bringing his sheaves with him.” Psalm 126:6

.

Yes, we may weep many tears in the coming days. And even though we will be… “As sorrowful, yet (we will be) alway rejoicing”, knowing that our Lord will, “Rejoice with them that do rejoice, and weep with them that weep.” 2nd Corinthians 6:10 & Romans 12:15 (parenthetical comment by this website editor)

.

Yes, every tear that we shed through the coming purifying trials will be met with manifold more tears by our Lord, who will be with us all the way up that Narrow Pathway…

.

“and, lo, I am with you alway,

even unto the end of the world.

Amen.”

Matthew 28:20
