Daily Devotional, Year 3 – November 5

.

.

.

.

Revelation 16:17-21: “The Seventh Plague: Cry ‘Uncle’?”

.

.

.

.

“And the seventh angel poured out his vial into the air;

and there came a great voice out of the temple of Heaven,

from the throne, saying, It is done.

And there were voices, and thunders, and lightnings;

and there was a great earthquake,

such as was not since men were upon the earth,

so mighty an earthquake, and so great.

And the great city was divided into three parts,

and the cities of the nations fell:

and great Babylon came in remembrance before God,

to give unto her the cup of the wine

of the fierceness of His wrath.

And every island fled away,

and the mountains were not found.

And there fell upon men a great hail out of heaven,

every stone about the weight of a talent:

and men blasphemed God because of the plague of the hail;

for the plague thereof was exceeding great.”

Revelation 16:17-21

.

.

.

.

When you were a child did you ever hear the expression, “Are you ready to cry, ‘Uncle’?” Of course, this was a childish way of saying, “I’ve had enough! I can’t take it anymore!” Yes, whether engaging in a wrestling match, or some other means of inflicting pain on another kid, the universal ‘white flag’ was to cry, “Uncle!”.

.

Now just what does this have to do with Bible prophecy?

.

Well, let’s just take a moment to recall what happened in Egypt as God was puring out His plagues upon Pharoah and his citizenry just prior to the great Exodus.

.

Remember how Pharoah reacted after each plague? At first he was ready to cry out, “Uncle! I’ve had enough!” But before long Pharoah’s heart hardened and he relented on his promise to let God’s people go.

.

But finally, upon receiving the last and final plague, he actually let God’s people go.

.

Now, as we read of this Exodus account, we are reminded of another set of plagues to be poured out in the Book of Revelation.

TODAY’S FEATURED HEAVENLY SIGN

.

.

COULD THERE BE A GREATER SIGN?”

.

.

In the opening verse, “And I saw another sign in heaven, great and marvellous, seven angels having the seven last plagues; for in them is filled up the wrath of God.” Revelation 15:1, is a direct reference to the Signs In Heaven, which God is just now graciously revealing.

.

Notice that this above verse says… “And I saw another sign in heaven, great and marvellous“.

.

If ever there was a great and marvelous sign in Heaven, this 7 Star Constellation seems to be just that! And it is the easiest of all constellations to locate (excepting for those in the southernmost latitudes of the Earth who cannot see it). It seems to stand alone in the northern sky, outshining any other constellation in the night heavens! 

.

As for its significance, it is easy to see the message for which it was created to bring. It looks like a bowl. A giant bowl! And in the winter, it begins to slowly tip through the night, as if it is finally spilling out its contents upon the earth, as stated in Revelation… “And the first (angel) went, and poured out his vial upon the earth” Revelation 16:2.

.

And so it is not hard to see the message which this constellation presents. In the summer it begins to slowly tip. But in winter it does fully appear to pour out its contents upon the Earth.

Daily Devotional, Year 3: November 4 (Noble Bereans, Part 28: “The Messages of the 3 Angels” CONTINUED)

Noble Bereans, Part 28: “The Messages of the 3 Angels”

To read part 1, click here…”September 2nd (Noble Bereans?)”

.

.

.

.

.

So, in this little series, the subject of those noble Bereans has been introduced. And today, it is still worthy of a little more exploration into another area of concern.

St Paul Preaching in Athens (Raphael, 1515) Wikipedia US public domain

.

Let’s look at the key Bible passage… “And the brethren immediately sent away Paul and Silas by night unto Berea: who coming there, went into the synagogue of the Jews. These were more noble than those in Thessalonica, in that they received the word with all readiness of mind, and searched the scriptures daily, whether those things were so.” Acts 17:10, 11

.

.

.

AN OPEN-MINDED SPIRIT IN BEREA

.

OK, so those in Berea were more noble, because they: 1. “Received the Word with all readiness of mind.” 

.http://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:La_Bible,_Notre-Dame_du_Taur,_septembre_2011.jpg

2. “And searched the Scriptures daily, whether those things were so.”

.

And so, the Bereans were ready to receive new teachings, which no doubt, conflicted with the supposed, “orthodox” teachings of that day.

.

Thus there was an open-mindedness which permeated their hearts, and a willingness to search the Scriptures daily, in hopes that these seemingly new teachings were indeed true!

THE 3 MESSAGES OF REVELATION 14

https://www.pri.org/stories/2011-08-10/revelations-book-revelation

.

 

A great part of the test which is coming upon the Church in these last moments of time is to be able to accept these three messages, which appear to have seeming discrepancies between each other.

.

In other words, none of these messages are infallible. Each of them have various errors. In some cases, there are seeming errors which are not actually errors at all.

.

.

THE 7TH DAY SABBATH

.

https://www.pri.org/stories/2011-08-10/revelations-book-revelationOne such seeming error concerns the 7th day Sabbath of the 1st Angel’s message. Well, because the 1st Angel’s message proclaimed the everlasting Gospel, the 7th Day Sabbath was given in terms of the letter of the Law. And so, it spoke of the Sabbath as a one day per week event. And of course, the 7th Day Sabbath, according to the letter of the Law is indeed a one day per week event! Yes, from Friday at sundown to Saturday at sundown was the day which God ordained as the 7th Day Sabbath. 

.

But then, in the 2nd Angel’s message, the 7th Day Sabbath was more fully proclaimed, now being revealed to be a spiritual rest in which a soul obtains Salvation totally by God’s grace, without performing any human works.

.

.

.

.

.

https://www.pri.org/stories/2011-08-10/revelations-book-revelation

THE SUNDAY SABBATH

.

And so, both messages were correct.

.

But while the 1st message presented the 7th day Sabbath according to the letter of the Law, the 2nd message revealed the spiritual nature of the 7th Day Sabbath.

.

.

.

.

.

A GENUINE ERROR

.

https://www.pri.org/stories/2011-08-10/revelations-book-revelation

But as already proclaimed in today’s devotional, these 3 messages were not infallible. For instance, while the 2nd Angel’s message rightly proclaimed the spiritual nature of the 7th Day Sabbath, the 2nd message wrongly proclaimed a supposed new Sabbath which continues from midnight to midnight on the 1st day of the week, commonly referred to as the “Sunday Sabbath”, or “The Lord’s Day”. 

.

Of course, this spurious Sabbath was the brain-child of the Roman Catholic Church, and has no foundation in the Bible. But God then corrected this error with the 3rd Angel’s message.

.

Yes, the 3rd Angel’s message proclaimed an even more all-encompassing Sabbath Rest for the people of God, in which the Believer enjoys an ongoing, 24/7/365 rest via a growing trust in the “exceeding great and precious promises” of God, as revealed in the infallible Word of Christ. (see 2nd Peter 1:4)

.

.

.

.

.

THE 3RD MESSAGE CORRECTS PRIOR ERRORS

.

https://www.pri.org/stories/2011-08-10/revelations-book-revelation

As a matter of fact, there are other similar errors and seeming errors in the 1st Angel’s and 2nd Angel’s messages. And so, God raised up the 3rd Angel’s message to clear up any confusion about these discrepancies as well as the seeming discrepancies.

.

Now, of course, by no means is the 3rd Angel’s message to be regarded as infallible.

.

And so, the truth-loving Bible student has his or her work cut out for themselves, to prayerfully study in hopes of rightly discerning these three messages of unfolding Bible truths.

.

.

.

.

.

A TEST FOR CHURCH-GOERS

.

https://www.pri.org/stories/2011-08-10/revelations-book-revelation

Now one reason why God permitted errors to appear in these three messages is to allow enough pegs for all skeptics to hang their doubts and criticisms upon.

.

Another reason for allowing errors is to keep anyone from worshiping any one of the messengers who originally proclaimed each message. And because each messenger confessed that God alone is infallible, there is no excuse for any mistaken notion regarding the fallibility of these three messages. Each messenger had “feet of clay”. And the truth-loving Bible student needs to place their implicit trust in the Bible only. 

.

.

.

.

.

“GOOD NEWS FROM A FAR COUNTRY!”

Proverbs 25:25

.

https://www.pri.org/stories/2011-08-10/revelations-book-revelation

The Good News is, that God’s people will more and more learn to place complete confidence in the Bible, and never place complete trust in mere mortal men!

.

Listen…“The lofty looks of man shall be humbled, and the haughtiness of men shall be bowed down, and the LORD alone shall be exalted in that day. For the day of the LORD of hosts shall be upon every one that is proud and lofty, and upon every one that is lifted up; and he shall be brought low…Cease ye from man, whose breath is in his nostrils: for wherein is he to be accounted of?” Isaiah 2:11, 12, 22 

.

As this above passage proclaims, the Day of the Lord will not exalt any human! But instead, God calls us to cease from Man, not placing any trust in any human, including the original messengers of these 3 messages!

.

And yet, make no mistake! These three messages together presents very wonderful and biblical truths: truths which have been ignored, rejected, or slighted by the mainstream church-world.

.

And these three messages reveal how Bible prophecy has been unfolding throughout the church-era.

.

.

.

.

.

GOD’S DIVINE SIGNATURE UPON THESE 3 MESSAGES

.

And so, each and every truth-loving, “Noble Berean” will study, day-by-day, week-by-week, and even month-by-month in hopes that these three messages are indeed heaven-sent messages!

.

And to put a giant exclamation mark on these three messages, God has written His divine signature upon these messages via the “signs in the Sun…Moon…and…stars” Luke 21:25.

.

And all those who are open-minded and lover’s of truth can begin to see this Divine signature, thus proving the authenticity of these three messages!

FINALLY WALKING UPWARD INTO THE HIGHWAYS OF ETERNITY

.

Day by day, you will find yourself walking, like the Disciples, spreading the precious Gospel seed wherever the Spirit leads.

http://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:ThomasCole-Pilgrim_Cross_End.jpg

.

Taking the lovely name of Jesus, with every word spoken. Walking through this sin-darkened world, witnessing to those who take notice that of a truth, Jesus is present within you. Even like faithful Enoch, walking through the highways and byways of life in this world, spreading the Gospel-seed of unpretentious love.

.

Day by day, you will become more and more closed in with God. Moment by moment, your heart will become intertwined with God’s heart, eventually two hearts beating as one heart.

.

And just like Enoch, when the appointed time of sojourning on earth is finally done…you will walk onward…and upward…and into the highways and byways of eternity. (“And Enoch walked with God: and he was not; for God took him.” Genesis 5:24).

In John Bunyan’s earth-shaking tale, Pilgrim’s Progress, the main character, Christian, was on his way to the Celestial City, to get that great Burden off his back (the burden of sin).

.

But on that way, he met up with a fellow named Worldly Wiseman, who informed Christian that such an arduous journey was not necessary.

http://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/John_Bunyan's_Pilgrim's_Progress

.

He told Christian that all he needed was to go to the Village of Morality! In that village, weary pilgrims could enjoy peace and security in the world, and not be required to do daily battle against sin, the flesh, and the Devil. Instead, they could merely live a moral life, while still pursuing the selfish pleasures and ambitious attainments this world has to offer!

.http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:New_york_times_square-terabass.jpg

Yes, a great portion of today’s Christendom has become just that! The City of Morality!

.

And there are many Christians who, like Bunyan’s pilgrim, have been duped by that old deceiver, Worldly Wiseman!

.

Oh yes, wouldn’t you know it! Worldly Wiseman is still around!

.

And still, he’s busily misdirecting simple-minded Christians into going to the City of Morality instead of continuing onward and upward to Zion, the City of God!

TODAY’S PROSPERITY-DRIVEN GOSPEL

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

.

In the November 1st devotional (click here), this notion that many faithful church-goers get, that they can begin to live a moral life while still seeking after the selfish pleasures and ambitious pursuits of the world was the topic two days ago.

.

But this continuation of that devotional is to further lay down the reasons why such a supposed “dream life” is just not possible in this fallen world.

.

Yes, those who attempt to carve out such a comfortable religion which allows them to continue living greatly for worldly success and happiness are fooling themselves.

.

“THAT THEY MAY RECOVER THEMSELVES OUT OF THE SNARE OF THE DEVIL, WHO ARE TAKEN CAPTIVE BY HIM AT HIS WILL”

2nd Timothy 2:26 

.

And it was pointed out in the November 1st devotional that Satan, “the god of this world” will never allow these deceived ones to escape his world-wide snare! No, just the opposite! This great and treacherous spider will continue to wrap his silken cords of selfishness and deceit around his victims, finally injecting his liquifying poison into their veins until they melt into a spiritual jelly-like substance, ready for his Satanic Majesty to gobble them up!

.

And yet, these spiritually bankrupt ones, in their self-deceived duplicitness can perhaps at times get a glimpse of themselves for what they really are.

.

Yes, in His love, pity, and tender mercy, God may open their eyes to give them a candid look at themselves as He sees them.

.

.

.

.

.

“AND THE PHARISEES, WHO WERE COVETOUS…”

Luke 16:14

.

For instance, many who attempt to live out their “Christianity” while remaining in the City of Morality, will sometimes be ashamed at their own phariseeism as they legalistically tithe their 10% to their church, while withholding much for their own personal pleasure.

.

And as they perceive the needy multitudes around the world, starving for the bread of life, their conscience convicts them of their own undoneness…“Oh how selfish I’ve been with my money, when I could instead be financially supporting some faithful outreach ministry!”

.

.

.

.

.

“NOW THE WORKS OF THE FLESH ARE MANIFEST, WHICH ARE THESE…”

James 5:19

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

And besides the question of finances, these moralistic church-goers are likewise often grieved because of their less-than-holy behavior which frequently manifests itself in fits of proud anger, impatience, https://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:Cheers!_(3162940696).jpgrudeness, fleshly lusts, gluttony, cursing, greed, and other similar fleshly characteristics!

.

Oh yes, they would love to be Christlike. But they cannot! But soon, the Old Deceiver, the Father of Lies comes along and assures them that they are still, “a work in progress”. And they fall for this lie!

“O HOW LOVE I THY LAW! IT IS MY MEDITATION ALL THE DAY!”

Psalm 119:97

.

And so, these moralists may continue in some 15-30 minute daily Bible study. But as soon as they close their Bible their thoughts return to their daily earthly pursuits. And even though the Bible commands all Christians to meditate day and night on the Word, they just cannot get their minds to do so. They are caught in the Devil’s web of selfishness.

“TAKE HEED, LEST…YOUR HEARTS BE OVERCHARGED WITH EATING, DRINKING, AND THE CARES OF THIS LIFE, AND SO THAT DAY COME UPON YOU UNAWARES!”

Luke 21:34 

.

Well, there are many other tell-tale signs of apostasy, which the inhabitants of the City of http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:Super_Bowl_XLIII_-_Thunderbirds_Flyover_-_Feb_1_2009.jpgMorality may see in themselves. The hours wasted by television, radio, clubs, parties, working overtime to make more money for selfish pursuits, amusements, sports, houses/gardens/pleasure vehicles/etc., can all be used by God to convict their nearly dead consciences that they are lacking a true relationship with Jesus.

.

Oh yes, these City of Morality citizens may pray at times. But their prayers never rise above their ceiling…“If I regard iniquity in my heart, the Lord will not hear me:” Psalm 66:18. These moralists just cannot see that their heart goes headlong after so many earthly dreams and desires!

“GOOD NEWS FROM A FAR COUNTRY”

Proverbs 25:25https://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:Angel_prayers.jpg

.

Well, the very Good News is, that today is still the day of Salvation! And all who desire to run the Christian race, and win the heavenly crown can even now begin to beg and plead for deliverance from their Christless counterfeit religion!

.

https://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:USMC-081218-M-4507D-001.jpgListen to James 4:4, 8-10…“Ye adulterers and adulteresses, know ye not that the friendship of the world is enmity with God? whosoever therefore will be a friend of the world is the enemy of God…Draw nigh to God, and He will draw nigh to you. Cleanse your hands, ye sinners; and purify your hearts, ye double minded. Be afflicted, and mourn, and weep: let your laughter be turned to mourning, and your joy to heaviness. Humble yourselves in the sight of the Lord, and He shall lift you up.” 

.

Here is the prescription for our terminal illness of selfishness. Nothing less than a forsaking of this world of selfishness, followed by a 100% devotion to God is required for any hope for victorious Christian living!

.

Like Bunyan’s pilgrim, we must leave this City of Destruction, get out of the Village of Morality, and get on the upward pathway which leads out of this doomed world and onward to the Celestial City of God, the heavenly Zion!

THE SEEKER (THE SADDUCEE)

 

.

LOCATING THIS 3RD FACE

.

The 3rd face of the Moon is a bit more difficult to locate, because it is mostly upside down. But this photo and this sketch (below right) are how this face would appear if it was turned right side up. (In the southern hemisphere, however, this is how the full Moon actually appears.)

.

The 3rd face is the most difficult to see in the northern hemisphere, but once you do, it then becomes easy. This face is like a furry creature of the field. Maybe a rabbit. Maybe a squirrel. Perhaps a chipmunk. Probably a mouse. All “seekers”; all foragers and scavengers.

.

And while this picture shows this little “beast of the field” right side up, this 3rd face is always pretty much in an upside-down position.

.

The other two faces appear right-side-up, and are easier to locate. This photo and this sketch are both turned around to help you see this 3rd face easily. This enhanced sketch to the above right is merely to help you to see this face more easily. (As already stated, this 3rd face appears right side up in the southern hemisphere.)

.

.

.

.

.

LOCATING 3rd FACE AT BEGINNING OF NIGHT

.

But this sketch here to the right is how this 3rd face actually appears when the Full Moon is in the east, at the beginning of night, in the northern hemisphere. But all you can readily see is this 1st face. 

.

What you must do to see the 3rd face is to tilt your head to the right, 90 degrees.

.

Do you see it? (You may find it easier if you just turn your screen on its left side, if you are using a laptop. But please don’t do anything to put your computer in jeopardy!)

.

The easiest time of the month to actually see this face is when the Full Moon is in the east, just after dark. It then can be seen by tilting your head 90 degrees to the right.  But as night progresses, the Moon rotates clockwise, until this face is completely upside down, as the Moon works its way to the west.

Planet Earth, Devil’s Island, Part 9: “Planet Earth: Bizarro World!”

.

.

.

.

A certain caller to a radio talk show made an amazing analogy concerning the bizarre behavior of this current-day society.

.

You see, this caller said to the effect of, “When I was a boy, I read Superman comics. But the producers of that comic-strip would sometimes publish a companion comic book called, ‘Bizarro World.'”https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:Biazrro_world.jpg

.

The caller continued…“And in that Bizarro World comic book, Superman was the hero of Planet Earth, being the essence of everthing good. But there came a day in which his mirror-opposite enemy named “Bizarroman” decided to create his own world, Bizarro World, a cube-shaped planet with continents in the shape of Planet Earth’s continents.”

“WOE UNTO THEM THAT CALL EVIL GOOD, AND GOOD EVIL!”

Isaiah 5:20

The caller continued…“And in this weird planet, good was considered evil and evil good.” For instance, a young school-boy was punished for getting good grades, and praised for getting straight “F’s”! And Bizarroman, whose mirror-opposite resemblance to Superman, was the very essence of evil! And the citizenry of that cubed-shaped world praised the evil deeds of their super-hero, Bizarroman!”

.

And this caller concluded by saying, “This present-day society kind-of reminds me of that Bizarro World in the sense that society is now calling bizarre behavior good, and good behavior evil!”

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

Matthew 24:12

.

Well, the caller to this talk show was referring to the global paradigm shifts now taking place in which woman want to be men and men desire to be women, even to the degree that public restrooms for women are now being used by men, and visa-versa.

.

And schools which were once the bastions of good behavior are now teaching youth to engage in perverted behaviors.

.

And much of the current music glorifies evil behavior.

.

And Hollywood movies often glorifies, not just the bad guys, but also such things as violence, murder, revenge, and other objectionable behavior!

.

And many of today’s judges no longer care about the rule of law, which were designed to keep and protect society.

.https://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:No_Angels_-_ESC_2008.jpg

And more and more government officials are getting increasingly corrupt.

.

And a nation which once operated “above board” is now going deeper into debt.

.

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

And the western societies which once rejoiced in the truth of the Bible are now beginning to embrace false religious systems!

.

Yes, the radio show caller made a dramatic comparison of today’s bizarre paradigm shifts to that Bizarro World comic strip.

IT’S ALWAYS BEEN A BIZARRO WORLD!

.

The fact is, that while this present-day world seems to be going crazy on http://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:Paradise_Lost_3.jpgmany fronts, it can be truly said that Planet Earth has always been a type of Bizarro World!

.

Yes, Planet Earth has never been anything but “Bizarro World”, since the day that Lucifer took his rebellion along with his fellow rebels down from Heaven to this world. That’s right! Heaven was all good. And there was no evil in Heaven, until that fateful day when evil sprung up and began to fester and grow in Lucifer’s heart.

THE IMAGE OF THE BEAST

.

And so, just as Bizarroman created a world which mirrored his evil nature, so also, Lucifer created a world-system here on Planet earth which reflects his evil nature.

“A FORM OF GODLINESS”

.

The one big difference between Bizarro World and Planet Earth is that a huge part of Lucifer’s character is his deceptive nature.

http://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:Shoppers_on_Dundas,_near_Yonge.jpg

.

In other words, Lucifer, now given the office and title, Satan, knows that because the world’s inhabitants were originally created in the image of God, that they must be deceived into believing that this world is a good place to a great extent. Otherwise, if this present world was overtly evil, then Satan could not deceive us! And so, this master-deceiver has sprinkled this evil world with a false form of godliness, making it seem to have many “good and innocent” attractions.

.

Yes, as an observer surveys this world, there is a multitude of seemingly “good and innocent” pleasures and pursuits.

“THE WHOLE WORLD LIETH IN WICKEDNESS”

1st John 5:19

.

And while all Heaven operates by the heavenly virtues of brotherly love, unwavering honesty, meekness, unfailing kindness and purity, this Bizarro World (Planet Earth) is filled with the mirror-opposite qualities!

.

And try as we may to walk by our “good intentions”, we nevertheless are filled with pride, selfishness, anger, judging, impatience, rudeness, hatred, revenge, and a host of similar Bizarro World qualities. But the Bizarroman ruler of this world, the Devil and Satan, makes sure to sugar-coat all this evil with much morality.

.

A near perfect deception; enough to fool an entire planet of fellow rebels!

JESUS CHRIST: THE TRUE SUPERMAN!

Well, in spite of our Bizarro World evil nature, the true Superman, our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ has visited this Bizarro World planet and left for us a huge blessing in the form of Salvation!

.

And any man, woman, or child who desires to escape from this doomed planet, can https://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:USMC-081218-M-4507D-001.jpgcry out for Salvation, and not cease to cry out until that blessed Salvation restores the soul of that needy person into the image of Christ, the very essence of everything good and right!

.

And to make matters even more wonderful, Christ’s atonement on that cruel Cross has provided a way of escape from this doomed Bizarro World of death and destruction!

LOCATING THE DRAGON

.

REVELATION 12 DRAGON IS NOT DRACO!

.

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

First, let it be stated, that this Dragon Constellation is not the same constellation commonly referred to as “Draco” (photo to right is Draco).

.

This Revelation 12 Dragon from Signs Of Heaven, has not been previously recognized. But you will discover that it is a very intricate and complex constellation, once you are comfortable locating it (picture below, right).

Revelation 12 Dragon w/text

.

The star-charts below (below, right) are from Wikipedia and are combined into one chart to show these three constellations, which the editor has sketched over with these three constellations, as they appear when in the west. Hopefully, this will be an assist in locating these constellations in the night-sky.

.

.

.

.

.

.

LOCATION…

.

The Revelation 12 Dragon Constellation can be located by finding Orion in winter months.

 

Wikipedia star-charts winter constellation in West

.

The Dragon is to Orion’s left, and the Dragon’s mouth is right next to Orion’s shield. This Dragon’s mouth is the V-like constellation The Hyades Cluster, which is also known as the head of Taurus the Bull. The Dragon’s tail-tip is Pleiades and the lower shaft of his tail is partly of Aries  and Pisces. Then with aid of a dark and starry night, you may begin to connect the mouth and the tail with a very long body in an oval shape. The front and back legs are made of a few stars: the front legs partially of stars from Taurus . The back legs and rear fin are made of 6 stars from the Cetus Constellation.

.

BODY HARD TO SEE

.

The long oval-shaped body has relatively few stars, but can been seen, howbeit with a dark, starry night. The four stars of the front fins are made partially of Taurus .

In John Bunyan’s earth-shaking tale, Pilgrim’s Progress, the main character, Christian, was on his way to the Celestial City, to get that great Burden off his back (the burden of sin).

.

http://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/John_Bunyan's_Pilgrim's_ProgressBut on that way, he met up with a fellow named Worldly Wiseman, who informed Christian that such an arduous journey was not necessary.

.

He told Christian that all he needed was to go to the Village of Morality!

.

.

Only this Village called Morality is now a full-grown city!

.http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:New_york_times_square-terabass.jpg

Yes, a great portion of today’s Christendom has become just that! The City of Morality!

.

And there are many Christians who, like Bunyan’s pilgrim, have been duped by that old deceiver, Worldly Wiseman!

.

Oh yes, wouldn’t you know it! Worldly Wiseman is still around!

.

And still, he’s busily misdirecting simple-minded Christians into going to the City of Morality instead of continuing onward and upward to Zion, the City of God!

“GO SELL THAT THOU HAST…AND COME FOLLOW ME!”

When Jesus called His disciples, there was no half-hearted commitment on their part. It is written of them… “And when they had brought their ships to land, they forsook all, and followed Him.” Luke 5:11

.

Here is seen the totalitarian nature of the Gospel. Jesus has no interest in preserving some portion of this selfish world. He is not interested in compromising with selfishness. And selfishness is what this world is all about! And it must be completely vanquished!

“THE WHOLE WORLD LIETH IN WICKEDNESS”

.http://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:Shoppers_on_Dundas,_near_Yonge.jpg

Listen… “Love not the world, neither the things that are in the world. If any man love the world, the love of the Father is not in him. For all that is in the world, the lust of the flesh, and the lust of the eyes, and the pride of life, is not of the Father, but is of the world. And the world passeth away, and the lust thereof: but he that doeth the will of God abideth for ever.” 1st John 2:15-17   

.

Here above is seen the total depravity of this world of selfish pleasures and ambitious pursuits: “And we know that we are of God, and the whole world lieth in wickedness.” 1st John 5:19

.

Yes, the entire world system “lieth in wickedness”, as John, the Apostle puts it. We just don’t realize how much selfishness permeates these seemingly “harmless and “innocent” pleasures and pursuits of the world!

.

“TURN IN HITHER…STOLEN WATERS ARE SWEET!”

Proverbs 9:16, 17

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

.

Nevertheless, that “serpent of old”, the great deceiver carries on his cunning artifice against the people of God. And that old “worldly wiseman” is busily calling out to all those simple ones in the church-world to come and enjoy the so-called “innocent” pleasures and ambitious pursuits which are so abundant in today’s state-of-the-art, cornucopian super-society. Yes, that master deceiver has given this evil world a complete make-over, almost making it seem at times, like a theme-park Wonderland, http://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:Inside_The_Peacocks_-_geograph.org.uk_-_601408.jpgAdventureland, Dreamland, Frontierland, etc….

.

And in his role as the modern-day “False Prophet”, Satan has enjoyed great success in drawing away church-goers from the true and pure Gospel, back into the world, as they attempt to have Heaven while still clinging to the earth.

“SUPPOSING THAT GAIN IS GODLINESS”

1st Timothy 6:5

.

And perhaps one of Satan’s greatest deceptions is to sell the false notion that a Christian can achieve some type of earthly dream-life and still remain on the upward, Heavenward sojourn out of this “City of Destruction” world.

.

But that is not possible! Just the opposite! Satan (whose title in 2nd Corinthians 4:4 is, “the god of this world”) has made sure that only those who are willing to trade away their souls for a piece of this world will find peace and prosperity here…“Behold, these are the ungodly, who prosper in the world; they increase in riches.” Psalm 73:12 

.

Yes, this modern-day Worldly Wiseman is promising a life of affluence, advantage, and earthly pleasure if only the faithful church-goer will simply pinch off a little piece of this world and offer it on the altar of his or her selfish desires! That’s all that it takes to worship his Satanic Majesty!

.

.

.

.

.

“BUT IF ANY PROVIDE NOT FOR HIS OWN…HOUSEHOLD…IS WORSE THAN AN INFIDEL!”

1st Timothy 5:8

.

Now of course, those with families must live and work and provide for the needs and contentment and even the happiness of their household! And as long as it is still poshttp://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:Tissot_The_Flight_of_the_Prisoners.jpgsible to do this, the true worshiper of God must not neglect his duties. And if that Christian has a spouse and children who love this present world, he or she will probably be required to devote much time and energy in providing the things of this world to make them happy.

.

But make no mistake! All those true Christians with wayward family members will be crying out, day and night that God will bless them and deliver them all out of this Babylonish captivity, so that the entire family can come along up that gently ascending pathway to the Celestial City of God, forever leaving this doomed planet, as Bunyan called it, “The City of Destruction”.

LOCATING THIS 3RD FACE

.

The 3rd face of the Moon is a bit more difficult to locate, because it is mostly upside down. But this photo and this sketch (below right) are how this face would appear if it was turned right side up. (In the southern hemisphere, however, this is how the full Moon actually appears.)

.

The 3rd face is the most difficult to see in the northern hemisphere, but once you do, it then becomes easy. This face is like a furry creature of the field. Maybe a rabbit. Maybe a squirrel. Perhaps a chipmunk. Probably a mouse. All “seekers”; all foragers and scavengers.

.

And while this picture shows this little “beast of the field” right side up, this 3rd face is always pretty much in an upside-down position.

.

The other two faces appear right-side-up, and are easier to locate. This photo and this sketch are both turned around to help you see this 3rd face easily. This enhanced sketch to the above right is merely to help you to see this face more easily. (As already stated, this 3rd face appears right side up in the southern hemisphere.)

.

.

.

.

.

LOCATING 3rd FACE AT BEGINNING OF NIGHT

.

But this sketch here to the right is how this 3rd face actually appears when the Full Moon is in the east, at the beginning of night, in the northern hemisphere. But all you can readily see is this 1st face. 

.

What you must do to see the 3rd face is to tilt your head to the right, 90 degrees.

.

Do you see it? (You may find it easier if you just turn your screen on its left side, if you are using a laptop. But please don’t do anything to put your computer in jeopardy!)

.

The easiest time of the month to actually see this face is when the Full Moon is in the east, just after dark. It then can be seen by tilting your head 90 degrees to the right.  But as night progresses, the Moon rotates clockwise, until this face is completely upside down, as the Moon works its way to the west.

Noble Bereans, Part 27: “A Testing Time For The Church”

To read part 1, click here…”September 2nd (Noble Bereans?)”

.

.

.

.

.

So, in this little series, the subject of those noble Bereans has been introduced. And today, it is still worthy of a little more exploration into another area of concern.

St Paul Preaching in Athens (Raphael, 1515) Wikipedia US public domain

.

Let’s look at the key Bible passage… “And the brethren immediately sent away Paul and Silas by night unto Berea: who coming there, went into the synagogue of the Jews. These were more noble than those in Thessalonica, in that they received the word with all readiness of mind, and searched the scriptures daily, whether those things were so.” Acts 17:10, 11

.

.

.

.

.

AN OPEN-MINDED SPIRIT IN BEREA

.

OK, so those in Berea were more noble, because they: 1. “Received the Word with all readiness of mind.” 

.http://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:La_Bible,_Notre-Dame_du_Taur,_septembre_2011.jpg

2. “And searched the Scriptures daily, whether those things were so.”

.

And so, the Bereans were ready to receive new teachings, which no doubt, conflicted with the supposed, “orthodox” teachings of that day.

.

Thus there was an open-mindedness which permeated their hearts, and a willingness to search the Scriptures daily, in hopes that these seemingly new teachings were indeed true!

“SOME THINGS HARD TO BE UNDERSTOOD”

2nd Peter 3:16

.

A very reasonable and pertinent question that the Reader would want to ask his or her self is this: “Why has God given three messages which will obviously be very difficult for almost every church-goer to accept?”http://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:At_a_loss.svg

.

After all, these three messages and their messengers all suffer the scorn and derision of both the world as well as the church-world. “So why didn’t God just give us a nice, easy-to-believe message? After all, these messengers are among the most despised persons in a very “orthodox church-world! And to make matters worse, the timing of these messages goes entirely against those who are “Pre-Tribulation Rapture” adherents!

.

So why did God do this, if indeed, God had anything to do with these messages?

.

“And maybe just maybe these are false messages, given by the Devil to confuse and deceive us!”

.

.

.

.

.

 MUCH SCOFFING, SCORNING AND OPPOSING!

.

Yes, these messages create an extremely high and difficult hurdle to clear! As a matter of fact, there may be a great many church-goers and secularists who will end up scoffing, scorning and opposing these messages.

.

So why would God do this?

.

.

.

.

“GOD SHALL SEND THEM STRONG DELUSION!”

.

Yes, why did God give such a high and difficult hurdle for His people to clear?

.

Well, listen to the Bible…“Even him (“the man of sin”), whose coming is after the working of Satan with all power and signs and lying wonders, And with all deceivableness of unrighteousness 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: That they all might be damned who believed not the truth, but had pleasure in unrighteousness.” 2nd Thessalonians 2:9-12

.

Yes, in these last moments of time, the Bible reveals that God will send the apostate church a very strong delusion which will deceive all those in the Church who have never received the love for truth.

“BEFORE HIM (JESUS) SHALL BE GATHERED ALL NATIONS…AS A SHEPHERD DIVIDES HIS SHEEP FROM THE GOATS”

Matthew 25:32 

.http://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:Global_warning%5E_-_geograph.org.uk_-_1719373.jpg

In other words, this message is intended to divide the Church into two separate camps: those truth-seekers who are “noble Bereans”, but also those who still love and live for this present fallen world of selfish desires.

.

These are the two camps: the “wise virgins” and the “foolish virgins”. Or they might be called, “the sheep”, and “the goats”, or even “the wheat” and “the tares”.

.

.

.

.

.

.

NOBLE BEREANS OR STIFF-NECKED SKEPTICS?

.

But regardless of how the Bible addresses these two camps, one thing is for sure: only those who are truly “noble Bereans” will discover the truth of these three messages!

.

http://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:USMC-06831.jpg

In other words, only those who are willing to prayerfully study and search the Scriptures daily, weekly, and even monthly with an open-minded Spirit will eventually come to the conclusion that these three messages are Heaven-sent!

.

The rest will be swept away by delusion so strong that it will seem like irrefutable truth!

.

But these erring ones made the fatal mistake of studying this message to see if these things were NOT so, while the true noble Bereans “searched the Scriptures daily to see if these things were so!”

.

This is what happened back in Paul’s day, and this will be repeated in our day!

“WHOSOEVER SHALL NOT RECEIVE THE KINGDOM OF GOD AS A LITTLE CHILD, HE SHALL NOT ENTER IN!”

Mark 10:15

.

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

And so, the plea goes out today to all those who hear these things and take up the task at hand to search out these things: we must cry out to God to mercifully give us an open-minded Spirit and a truth-seeking heart!

.

And all those who truly receive this open-minded, truth-seeking Spirit of child-like meekness will not be disappointed!

.

And as they look up and lift up their heads to behold God’s message inscribed on the heavenly scroll, even from sky-to-sky, they will rejoice in the truth that has saved their soul!

.

And may you, dear Reader, be in that blessed number!

FINALLY WALKING UPWARD INTO THE HIGHWAYS OF ETERNITY

.

Day by day, you will find yourself walking, like the Disciples, spreading the precious Gospel seed wherever the Spirit leads.

.

Taking the lovely name of Jesus, with every word spoken. Walking through this sin-darkened world, witnessing to those who take notice that of a truth, Jesus is present within you. Even like faithful Enoch, walking through the highways and byways of life in this world, spreading the Gospel-seed of unpretentious love.

.

Day by day, you will become more and more closed in with God. Moment by moment, your heart will become intertwined with God’s heart, eventually two hearts beating as one heart.

.

And just like Enoch, when the appointed time of sojourning on earth is finally done…you will walk onward…and upward…and into the highways and byways of eternity. (“And Enoch walked with God: and he was not; for God took him.” Genesis 5:24).

Noble Bereans, Part 26 – “The Message of the Third Angel of Revelation 14”

To read part 1, click here…“September 2nd (Noble Bereans?)”

.

.

.

.

.

So, in this little series, the subject of those noble Bereans has been introduced. And today, it is St Paul Preaching in Athens (Raphael, 1515) Wikipedia US public domainstill worthy of a little more exploration into another area of concern.

.

Let’s look at the key Bible passage… “And the brethren immediately sent away Paul and Silas by night unto Berea: who coming there, went into the synagogue of the Jews. These were more noble than those in Thessalonica, in that they received the word with all readiness of mind, and searched the scriptures daily, whether those things were so.” Acts 17:10, 11

AN OPEN-MINDED SPIRIT IN BEREA

.

OK, so those in Berea were more noble, because they: 1. “Received the Word with all readiness of mind.” 

.http://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:La_Bible,_Notre-Dame_du_Taur,_septembre_2011.jpg

2. “And searched the Scriptures daily, whether those things were so.”

.

And so, the Bereans were ready to receive new teachings, which no doubt, conflicted with the supposed, “orthodox” teachings of that day.

.

Thus there was an open-mindedness which permeated their hearts, and a willingness to search the Scriptures daily, in hopes that these seemingly new teachings were indeed true!

“And the third angel followed them,

saying with a loud voice,

‘If any man worship the beast and his image,

and receive his mark in his forehead,

or in his hand,

The same shall drink of the wine of the wrath of God,

which is poured out without mixture

into the cup of his indignation;

and he shall be tormented with fire and brimstone

in the presence of the holy angels,

and in the presence of the Lamb:

And the smoke of their torment ascendeth up for ever and ever:

and they have no rest day nor night,

who worship the beast and his image,

and whosoever receiveth the mark of his name.”

Revelation 14:9-11

THIRD ANGEL’S MESSAGE

.

In the last three devotionals, the subject of the messages of the three angels of Revelation 14 has https://www.pri.org/stories/2011-08-10/revelations-book-revelationbeen explored. And it was discovered that these messages were not given back-to-back, but rather over the process of prophetic time in these last decades. Remember, the Book of Revelation was given for God’s people at any time during the New Testament era. Persecution of the Church began even back in the very first century, A.D..

.

And even though the 1st angel’s message seemed to be proclaimed as out of time (in the 1800’s), nevertheless, the apostasy within the Church continued to grow from that time forward, until the appointed time when God was ready to call His people out of spiritual Babylon.

.

.

.

.

2ND ANGEL’S MESSAGE

.

Then, in the fullness of time came the 2nd angel’s message, pronouncing this apostasy. And combined with the message of “another angel” of Revelation 18, this message included the call to, “Come out of her (Babylon), My people, that ye be not partakers of her sins, and that ye receive not of her plagues. For her sins have reached unto heaven, and God hath remembered her iniquities.” Revelation 18: 4, 5

.

Yes, the apostasy got so bad, that God’s Spirit was finally taken out of the midst of the church-world, giving way to the abomination of desolation (Satan) moving in as the counterfeit of the Holy Spirit to fill the void with his “itching ears” gospels to replace the pure truth of the Word.

.

Once this apostasy began to mature, the formerly faithful, holy, and reverent church services began to bring in prosperity-driven gospels, howbeit some in a more conservative form than others. But whether tagged as a “name-it-and-claim-it” gospel, or as “The American Dream” or “The Entrepreneurial Spirit”, these gospels permeated virtually through the entire church-world, either by precept or by the world-loving example set by either the parishioners or the clergy, or by both. And along with this abominable prosperity-driven gospel, came the spirit of world-loving sensuality in the form of sensual “praise music”, sensual dress codes, sports, parties, clubs, games, “foolish talk and jesting”, comedians, dancing, drinking, politics, and a host of similar worldly inducements. Thus the church-world, whether liberal or conservative, became appealing for the unsaved multitudes in the world to join up with. No longer was “the offense of the Cross” standing in the way of the world. And many churches filled up to overflowing! And even the more conservative churches were forced to embrace many of these aforementioned worldly inducements, for fear of losing their parishioners to the more liberal and fun-loving churches.

SIGNS IN THE SUN, MOON, AND STARS

.

Thus came the time when God would give the long-awaited 3rd angel’s message. And each message, the 1st and 2nd angel’s message were presented in a different manner from one-another, and the 3rd message being no exception! (Oh yes, both of the 1st and 2nd angel’s messages given earlier also contained some of the 3rd angels message, but not as fully as now is being given.)

.

Yes, each message came in distinctly different manners. And the message of the 3rd angel miraculously came in the form of heavenly signs… ”And there shall be signs in the sun, and in the moon, and in the stars; and upon the earth distress of nations, with perplexity; the sea and the waves roaring;”  This was a promise by God, given in Luke 21:25, that in the last days, there would be signs in the Sun, Moon, and stars. But it was not yet revealed that Luke’s afore-promised signs would be attached to the 3rd angel’s message.

.

.

.

.

.

THREE ANGELS’ MESSAGE INSCRIBED IN THE SUN, MOON, AND STARS

.

And these signs in the stars presented an orderly message in three distinct groups, the http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:Starry_Night_at_La_Silla.jpgspring/summer constellations, the fall constellations, and finally the winter constellations. Thus the message of the three angels was no longer confined to human instrumentalities. Now, the heavens themselves proclaimed the glory of God in these messages of the three angels. And the earth was now lightened with the glory of God by means of the Sun, Moon and stars now becoming heavenly prophets, one message following another in a succinct and orderly manner.

.

The Spring/Summer constellations proclaiming the everlasting Gospel of the 1st angel, as the great Star, Arcturus, appears to be leading a procession of constellations through the night skies in a northwesterly direction.

.

Then comes the Fall Constellations, proclaiming the 2nd angel’s message, and showing us the choice between which mountain we might climb, as we stand in the Valley of Decision.

.

Then comes the fearful Winter Constellations, showing us the great battle before us. This is the message of the 3rd angel which the winter constellations reveal. Not only do they proclaim the battle which we must fight if we are to be overcomers, but they also reveal the rewards which await each portion of the Church-world: the apostate portion and the faithful portion.

.

SIGNS IN THE SUN AND MOON

.

But in addition to those starry messengers, the earth is greatly lightened with the God’s glory by reason of the two great lights, the Sun and the Moon.

.

Yes, while the Sun represents Christ in Scripture, the Moon represents God’s people: Christ and His Church. Christ who enlightens, warms, and gladdens the world each new morning of our lives, while the Church lightens this dark world with the Gospel of Salvation proclaimed through the dark night of woe which has covered the earth for many long centuries now. 

.

And all these heavenly messengers work together to present the messages of the three angels of Revelation 14 in all its fullness!

.

.

.

.

.

CALLING ALL NOBLE BEREANS

.

And each and every man, woman, and child is now invited to come and behold this heavenly message, inscribed in the heavens since the very days of creation! And each and every truth-http://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:USMC-06831.jpgseeking “Noble Berean” has been given enough time to make up his or her mind which direction to go in the coming time before us. And when each and every last soul has decided which camp they will join themselves to, then will come the end, culminating with the glorious return of Christ to call His sleeping saints, as well as those who are alive and remain unto the coming of the Lord!

.

And so, these are the messages of the three angels. Much different than what we’ve been taught from the modern-day seminaries! But Isaiah 3:12 warns us… ”O My people, they which lead thee cause thee to err, and destroy the way of thy paths.” No, it is not those “far-out” cults over there which lead us astray. But it is the very leaders of today’s mainstream Christianity which are leading God’s professed people like lambs to the slaughter!

“GOOD NEWS FROM A FAR COUNTRY”

Proverbs 25:25

.

However the very Good News is that just as that popular saying goes, “Today is the first day of the rest of your life”, we have a great hope! Yes, God’s mercies are new every morning! And His call to repentance goes out fresh, each new day! And those of us who have been deceived by our leadership, have received a fresh new invitation to enter into the supper of the Lamb. Oh yes, the days before us will drive out the Old Man of sin which still dwells within us. And yes, the fires of tribulation will be heated up seven times hotter. But he or she which endures to the end will receive a glorious crown of victory that will never fade throughout the ceaseless ages!

.

So let’s become as humble little children and begin to faithfully follow Jesus as He leads us onward and upward in a heavenward direction!

2ND ANGEL’S MESSAGE

.

http://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:Burgkmair_whore_babylon_color.jpgIn today’s devotional, the message of the 2nd angel of Revelation 14 will be our focus… ”And there followed another angel, saying, Babylon is fallen, is fallen, that great city, because she made all nations drink of the wine of the wrath of her fornication.” Revelation 14:8

.

Here is a message which while written in veiled allegorical language, yet with a little study can readily be seen to be speaking of the apostate church-world. Yes, while the Old Testament reveals that Babylon is a spiritual picture of Old Testament Jerusalem, nevertheless, Galatians 4:25, 26 reveals Jerusalem in the following revelation by Paul… ”For this Agar (Sara’s handmaid) is mount Sinai in Arabia, and answereth to Jerusalem which now is, and is in bondage with her children. But Jerusalem (represented by Sara) which is above is free, which is the mother of us all.”

.

So Paul here reveals that both Sara and her handmaid, Hagar were given by God to be spiritual allegories representing both the Church-apostate as well as the Church-faithful. Yes, here we have the two divisions within the church-world: those in the Church who are unsaved, and still in bondage to their sins, and those who have truly become “Born Again” into the kingdom of Heaven, which is, “the Jerusalem above”. Yes, Hagar represents Salvation by human works, while Sara represents Salvation by the promise of God.

.

And so, when the Bible speaks of spiritual Babylon, we need not look any further than the Jerusalem which is still in bondage to sin, i.e., the apostate portion of the Church.

HAROLD CAMPING

.

Now there was one man who warned of these things to the world. His name was Harold Camping. And he faithfully preached that today’s church-world has become apostate, and as a result, has been vomited out of the mouth of Jesus, even as it is written…”So then because thou art lukewarm, and neither cold nor hot, I will spue thee out of My mouth.” Revelation 3:16. Today’s Church, because of a lack of religious persecution has gone headlong after the vain pleasures and ambitious pursuits of the world, rendering themselves vain and irrelevant in the eyes of Heaven and Heaven’s Jesus. Thus has the forbearance of God reached its limit…”I will spew thee out of My mouth”, warns Jesus!

.

But for over 30 years Harold Camping faithfully encouraged his radio audience to attend church each week, even though he realized how apostate they were becoming.

.

“Do the best you can to find a church which is reasonably faithful to the Bible. Don’t set your expectations too high”, Camping could often be heard advising his nightly callers.

.

.

.

.

.

“FOR THE TIME WILL COME WHEN THEY WILL NOT ENDURE SOUND DOCTRINE”

2nd Timothy 4:3

.

However, in the last 20 years of his life, Camping finally understood that it was his duty to give the 2nd angel’s message that the churches had surpassed the limits of God’s forbearance. And so, after much study and much prayer he eventually reversed his stance by finally giving the message… “And I heard another voice from heaven, saying, Come out of her, My people, that yehttp://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:Tissot_The_Flight_of_the_Prisoners.jpg be not partakers of her sins, and that ye receive not of her plagues. For her sins have reached unto heaven, and God hath remembered her iniquities.” Revelation 18:4, 5. And being a master mathematician, Camping calculated many time prophecies concerning the time of the end, when the Revelation 18 message was to be given to… ”Come out of her, My people.”

.

And no, Harold Camping was not the 2nd angel of Revelation 14. But just like Ellen White, the message God gave him to proclaim was symbolized by an angel’s announcement (the Greek word for angel (angelos) can also be translated, “messenger” instead of “angel”).

.

.

.

.

.

.

CAMPING CONSTANTLY UPLIFTED THE BIBLE

.

As a matter of fact, Camping oft repeated a daily warning…Don’t trust me! Study the Bible for your own selves! Check out what I teach against what the Bible says! I too have feet of clay, and am not to be trusted as the Bible is to be trusted. The Bible is the only infallible Word of God! Study, study, study!” On Camping’s daily 90 minute question/answer radio talk-show, he could be heard faithfully uttering this disclaimer perhaps a dozen times each night. And to prove his human fallibility, Camping only renounced the heretical false doctrine known as “Eternal Torment” just several years before his long ministry ended! In other words, he was so locked into this age-old church-tradition of “Eternal Torment”, he could not break free of its chains until after decades of defending this very unbiblical doctrine!

.

.

.

.

.

STUDIED 4 TO 6 HOURS DAILY

.

Nevertheless, in spite of his several erroneous beliefs (“Eternal Torment” & the Sunday Sabbath), http://www.wikiart.org/en/gustave-dore/baruch-writes-jeremiah-s-prophecies#supersized-artistPaintings-201408Camping was a self-taught theologian of the first order!

.

Aware of the many other gross errors being promulgated in the modern-day seminaries, Camping studied for his own self, for about an average of 4-6 hours daily. And his daily radio Bible studies thoroughly scoured the Bible, word-by-word, verse-by-verse, often taking several years of individual daily 25 minute audio Bible studies to complete even one particular book of the Bible. For instance, his study into Jeremiah contains well over 600 individual 25 minute audio studies!

.

And in those daily studies he thoroughly dissected each verse, often referring to the Hebrew for word analysis, plus much cross-referencing of other related passages found elsewhere in the Bible.

.

.

.

.

.

.

MUCH AGREEMENT THAT THE CHURCH-WORLD BECAME BABYLON

.

Oh, and by the way, Ellen White who gave the 1st angel’s message likewise preached the 2nd angel’s message which agreed with what Camping later on proclaimed. In other words, she too https://www.pri.org/stories/2011-08-10/revelations-book-revelationforetold of the great apostasy of the church-world, also proclaiming the fallen churches to be spiritual Babylon. And even though Camping could not see the validity of Ellen White’s ministry, there were very many similarities between their messages!

.

And over his 50+ year public ministry, Harold Camping studied to the point of becoming aware that many errors were being taught in mainstream Christianity.

.

And so, Harold Camping was given the commission to call God’s faithful remnant out of spiritual Babylon, which he faithfully proclaimed for almost the last 20 or so years of his life. And those who consider themselves to be open-minded “noble Bereans” will want to reserve plenty of time to further study these things out.

1ST ANGEL’S MESSAGE

.

In yesterday’s devotional the basic principle of proper Bible interpretation has been set forth, and so, the focus of today will be on Revelation 14:6-12 in which three messages are given to the inhabitants of the earth.

.

Actually, only the 1st message will be our focus today. And again, since this is only a little devotional with limited space, this subject can only be lightly touched upon, but hopefully enough to whet the appetite of any truth-seeking “noble Berean” who desires to continue their own personal on-going study on this subject.

.

And this website has many other articles which may further direct the Reader into these truths.

Listen to the 1st angel’s message… “And I saw another angel fly in the midst of heaven, having the everlasting gospel to preach unto them that dwell on the earth, and to every nation, and kindred, and tongue, and people, Saying with a loud voice, Fear God, and give glory to Him; for the hour of His judgment is come: and worship Him that made heaven, and earth, and the sea, and the fountains of waters.” Revelation 14:6, 7

 

.

Here we have the first message preached to Earth’s dwellers, that includes the preaching of the everlasting Gospel, but also the warning that the fearful hour of God’s Judgment is come. In addition to this, the message contains an exhortation to worship the one and true God who created heaven and earth and the sea and fountains of waters.

.

.

.

ELLEN G. WHITE

.

Now, for brevity’s sake, let’s just “cut to the chase”.

.

Has there been any significant candidate who has proclaimed to be a fulfillment of this message?

.

Yes, there was a lady back in the 1800’s and early 1900’s named Ellen G. White who made the claim of giving this 1st angel’s message (along with the other two messages).

.

No, she never claimed to be an angel, only that the message she gave was symbolized as being given by an angel flying in the midst of heaven.

JUDGMENT HOUR BACK IN 1800’s!?

.

Now while it could be somewhat conceded that her writings contained the everlasting Gospel, https://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:1858-great-controversy-book-cover.JPGyet many will instead argue that no possibility exists for the Judgment Hour to have begun all the way back in the mid-nineteenth century. After all, that’s over 150 years ago!

.

Nevertheless, upon reading such writings as her book, “Great Controversy”, she clearly stated that God’s Judgment must first begin at the house of God, but will progress until it eventually extends to the entire world, finally culminating with the long-awaited return of Christ in the clouds of glory!

.

Now does the Bible support such an extension of prophetic time?

.https://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:1858-great-controversy-book-cover.JPG

Oh yes, in a number of places, the Bible says such things as”For the time is come that judgment must begin at the house of God: and if it first begin at us, what shall the end be of them that obey not the gospel of God?” 1st Peter 4:17

.

So even back in Peter’s day, the Judgment of God was beginning to fall on God’s Church, as the first three chapters of Revelation likewise reveal. So, how much more in Ellen White’s day (and even more so in our day), when the churches were becoming complacent and world-loving because of the lack of outside persecution from the secular world, as well as a lack of persecution from the apostate religious community.

HER WRITINGS WERE A PARAPHRASE OF THE BIBLE

.

Now as far as preaching the everlasting Gospel, those who are thoroughly familiar with the Bible http://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:Holy_bible.jpgcan begin as “Noble Bereans” to examine her many writings (on a daily basis) and be delighted to discover that much or perhaps most of her writings were merely paraphrasing some portion of the New and Old Testaments, either literally or allegorically.

.

For example, her counsels concerning a healthy diet have a relation to biblical references to food in the Bible. Such things as milk, bread, fruit. etc., can be found in the many Bible allegories concerning “the milk of the Word”, or “the fruit of the Spirit”, or “the bread from Heaven”.

THE SABBATH REST UNTO OUR SOULS

.

But this isn’t the only example one could offer. No, even her references to the Sabbath, while http://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:Tissot_Moses_and_the_Ten_Commandments.jpgseemingly Old Testament, can easily be spiritualized by such passages as this…”Come unto Me (Jesus), 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.” Matthew 11:28, 29

.

Here are the very words of Jesus, in which is plainly spiritualized the 4th Commandment. And so, Ellen White’s seemingly Old Testament teachings can easily be spiritualized in such a way that aligns perfectly with Scripture! In other words, the New Testament spiritualizes away the Old Testament types and shadows and allegories. And just like the Old Testament presented the Law in precepts, so did Ellen White’s writing, howbeit to a much lessor extent. After all, the everlasting Gospel includes both the New, but also the Old Testament. And so do her writings!

AN EXAMPLE OF PARAPHRASING

.

But Ellen White was by no means stuck in the Old Testament, but often paraphrased many New Testament passages…”Every faculty, every attribute, with which the Creator has endowed the http://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/Category:Magnifying_glass_on_book_iconschildren of men, is to be employed for His glory; and in this employment is found its purest, noblest, happiest exercise. The principles of heaven should be made paramount in the life, and every advance step taken in the acquirement of knowledge or in the culture of the intellect should be a step toward the assimilation of the human to the divine. { FE 544.2}”

.

Here is just one quote and yet is literally dripping with Old and New Testament references such as Luke 10:27…”And He (Jesus) answering said, Thou shalt love the Lord thy God with all thy heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy strength, and with all thy mind; and thy neighbour as thyself.” (And this Luke reference is also found in the Old Testament)

NOBLE BEREANS WILL STUDY WITH OPEN MINDS

.

Now, of course, those who are not “Noble Bereans” will be content to merely study Ellen White’s writings in a superficial manner, just long enough to find some supposed flaw in her writings. And truth-be-told, Ellen White warned her readers not get the notion that her writings were infallible…In regard to infallibility, I never claimed it; God alone is infallible. His word is true, and in Him is no variableness, or shadow of turning.—Letter 10, 1895. { 1SM 37.4}”

.

And so, Ellen White’s writings could very well be the fulfillment of the 1st angel of Revelation 14. And perhaps, more will be later offered on this website in support of this idea.

.

And in tomorrow’s devotional, the message of the 2nd angel, “Babylon is fallen is fallen” will be our theme of exploration.

FINALLY WALKING UPWARD INTO THE HIGHWAYS OF ETERNITY

.

Day by day, you will find yourself walking, like the Disciples, spreading the precious Gospel seed wherever the Spirit leads.

http://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:ThomasCole-Pilgrim_Cross_End.jpg

.

Taking the lovely name of Jesus, with every word spoken. Walking through this sin-darkened world, witnessing to those who take notice that of a truth, Jesus is present within you. Even like faithful Enoch, walking through the highways and byways of life in this world, spreading the Gospel-seed of unpretentious love.

.

Day by day, you will become more and more closed in with God. Moment by moment, your heart will become intertwined with God’s heart, eventually two hearts beating as one heart.

.

And just like Enoch, when the appointed time of sojourning on earth is finally done…you will walk onward…and upward…and into the highways and byways of eternity. (“And Enoch walked with God: and he was not; for God took him.” Genesis 5:24).

Noble Bereans, Part 23: “The Messages of the Three Angels of Revelation 14”

.

.

So, in this little series, the subject of those noble Bereans has been introduced. And today, it is still worthy of a little more exploration into another area of concern.

St Paul Preaching in Athens (Raphael, 1515) Wikipedia US public domain

.

Let’s look at the key Bible passage… “And the brethren immediately sent away Paul and Silas by night unto Berea: who coming there, went into the synagogue of the Jews. These were more noble than those in Thessalonica, in that they received the word with all readiness of mind, and searched the scriptures daily, whether those things were so.” Acts 17:10, 11

AN OPEN-MINDED SPIRIT IN BEREA

.

OK, so those in Berea were more noble, because they: 1. “Received the Word with all readiness of mind.” 

.http://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:La_Bible,_Notre-Dame_du_Taur,_septembre_2011.jpg

2. “And searched the Scriptures daily, whether those things were so.”

.

And so, the Bereans were ready to receive new teachings, which no doubt, conflicted with the supposed, “orthodox” teachings of that day.

.

Thus there was an open-mindedness which permeated their hearts, and a willingness to search the Scriptures daily, in hopes that these seemingly new teachings were indeed true!

REVELATION WAS WRITTEN FOR ENTIRE CHURCH-AGE

.

The Book of Revelation was given for the Church in every age, even as it is written… ”Seal not the sayings of the prophecy of this book: FOR THE TIME IS AT HAND.” Revelation 22:10.

.

Yes, the Book of The Revelation of Jesus Christ is just as its title reveals: it is the revelation of Jesus Christ, and His marvelous workings in a world steeped in sin and woe.

.

.

.

.

.

CHURCH-WORLD IN DENIAL

.

But for the past 55 or so years, the apostate portion of the Church has been misleading the Christian community into the notion that the last 19 chapters of Revelation concerns only the literal Jews and are irrelevant for the Church. And to further bolster this notion, the man-made name, “The Rapture” was added to the teachings of theologians and Bible teachers, to bring about the deception that there will be two separate returns of Christ, presenting the fallacy that the Church would be snatched away prior to the last 7 years of earth’s great end-of-days tribulation.

.

This is a fatal error, and is easily dis-proved by such passages as this above verse, plus many other similar passages such as this… ”Blessed is he that readeth, and they that hear the words of this prophecy, and keep those things which are written therein: FOR THE TIME IS AT HAND.” Revelation 1:3

.

Now why does God pronounce those to be blessed, who read and hear and keep the words of this prophecy?

.

Simple! Because “the time is at hand.”

.

In other words, the entire Book of Revelation was given to be a comfort for God’s people at any point in time in the New Testament era, as it reveals how Jesus works with and works through His Church-elect. Yes, persecution against Christians by Satan’s armies began soon after Christ’s ascension!

.

But in this supposed era of “peace and safety”, today’s theologians would have us to believe that the prophecy of Revelation is only for those who live after the so-called Rapture.

.

.

.

.

.

MAN-MADE UNBIBLICAL HERMENEUTIC

.

However, the problem came in when apostate church theologians decided that Scripture must be interpreted as literal as possible, to avoid all the indiscriminate mis-interpreting of Scripture by many unsanctified minds.http://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:Holy_bible.jpg

.

Yes, there were those who attempted to spiritualize the Scriptures in a willy-nilly fashion, ignoring the proper methods of Bible interpretation.

.

But as the saying goes, “Don’t throw the baby out with the bathwater!” In other words, just because there were many unsanctified minds who had abused the Scriptures over the past 2,000 years, doesn’t necessitate the disposal of all spiritualizing. Because, there is a good and proper method of interpreting the many allegories, types, and shadows found throughout the Bible. Yes, by judiciously comparing scripture with scripture, and spiritual things with spiritual, one may find the true spiritual meaning veiled behind the various allegories, parables, types, and shadows found throughout both testaments.

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

And doesn’t Jesus Himself tell us… ”And He said, Unto you (His true disciples) it is given to know the mysteries of the kingdom of God: but to others in parables; that seeing they might not see, and hearing they might not understand.”? Luke 8:10

.

Yes, the Bible is filled with many truths which are often veiled within types and shadows and parables and allegories, and can only be revealed by the indwelling Holy Spirit.

“SPIRITUAL THINGS ARE SPIRITUALLY DISCERNED”

.

And concerning the allegorical nature of the Bible, even Paul asks the question… ”Tell me, ye that desire to be under the law, do ye not hear the law?…Which things are an allegory.” Galatians 4:21, 24

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

Paul here was gently scolding the Galatians for not discerning the allegorical nature of the Law which would have revealed to them the deeper truths which these Galatians could not see by reason of their spiritual blindness.

.

But likewise, today’s apostate portion of the Church cannot properly discern spiritual things even as it is written… “not in the words which man’s wisdom teacheth, but which the Holy Ghost teacheth; comparing spiritual things with spiritual. But the natural man receiveth not the things of the Spirit of God: for they are foolishness unto him: neither can he know [them], because they are spiritually discerned.” 1st Corinthians 2:13, 14

.

Yes, the Bible is a spiritual book. But the carnal heart cannot properly discern that spiritual nature, nor does it desire to do so.

.

And to further lock them out of truth, Satan stealthily brought in this false non-biblical hermeneutic which demands that scripture must only be interpreted literally, as far as possible.

.

FALSE HERMENEUTIC HAS CLOSED UP REVELATION

.

Now in today’s devotional, the fundamental principle of proper Bible interpretation concerning the parabolic nature of the Bible has been laid down, howbeit not exhaustively, which would have required a number of devotionals to do a proper job of it.

.

And yet, even a superficial study is enough to refute this phantom hermeneutic which the apostate portion of the Church has invented and embraced, that forbids anything but a literal interpretation of Scripture as far as possible. And such a non-biblical hermeneutic has closed up the Book of Revelation to the deceived portion of the Church, convincing the vast throngs of today’s church-goers into the false notion that Revelation is mostly irrelevant, applying only to a select few of Jewish descent who were not snatched away by the so-called Rapture.

.

Of course, the hypocrisy of the matter, is that this non-biblical hermeneutic requiring only the literal interpretation of Scripture is frequently discarded and ignored by its very own adherents, whenever it is more convenient for them to spiritualize some passage of Scripture. And so, the whole business of this so-called “Literal Hermeneutic” is utter folly!
