Noble Bereans, Part 41: “God’s Prophetic Timeline”

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

.

.

Unfortunately, the apostate portion of today’s church-world has not been taught to think of Bible prophecy in terms of prophetic time.

.

In other words, when they read in Revelation about “seven years”, all they can conclude is a literal 7 year period of time.

“I HAVE APPOINTED EACH DAY FOR A YEAR”

.

But the Bible speaks repeatedly about prophetic time in such places as Ezekiel 4:6 …“And when thou hast accomplished them, lie again on thy right side, and thou shalt bear the iniquity of the house of Judah forty days: I have appointed thee each http://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/Category:Magnifying_glass_on_book_iconsday for a year.”

.

This above verse is merely one example of how God prophesy’s. And to miss this great truth is to make the same mistake which Old Testament Israel made in so many ways: to try to interpret Scripture literally when in truth it is a very spiritual Book!

“THE LORD…SENT…TO SHOW…THE THINGS WHICH MUST SHORTLY BE DONE”

Revelation 22:6

.

http://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:Avvakum_by_Myasoyedov.jpegAnd so, those who “stumble at the Word” will ignore Revelation’s warnings, such as…“And he saith unto me, Seal not the sayings of the prophecy of this book: for the time is at hand.” 1st Peter 2:8 & Revelation 22:10

.

This and similar warnings have been ignored by modern-day theologians, causing great error and confusion as to the prophetic time-line of the Church. In other words, theologians of the past correctly understood how Revelation was written for the Church throughout all ages. Not just for a seven-year period!

.

But today, this correct understanding has been mostly lost sight of.

“MY PEOPLE ARE DESTROYED FOR A LACK OF KNOWLEDGE!”

Hosea 4:6

.

Unfortunately, part of the problem is the lack of historical knowledge of the Church throughout the past two-thousand years.

.

Had the average Christian been thoroughly educated in our Church history, they might have been more open to the truth that Revelation was written for every century of the past two-thousand years.

.

And so, as the student of prophecy attempts to decipher the various allegories and time-prophecies of Revelation, it must be interpreted through the corridors of the past two millenniums and not only for some mere 7 year period.

“WOE TO THEM…THAT PUT FAR AWAY THE EVIL DAY!”

Amos 6:1, 3

.

And one thing which must be kept in mind, is that the Bible was written by God to have a sense of urgency about it.

.

Yes, God knew how easy it is for His people to become complacent and lethargic.

.

And in a very real sense, it has always been the Day of the Lord. People do not realize how short time is in their individual lives.

.

Thus God has veiled many of His prophecies within the prophetic day/year principle.

ANY NOBLE BEREANS?

.

And thus, when Ellen White wrote about the history of the Church, she correctly assigned the various prophecies from Revelation to the Church-apostate and the Church-faithful.

.

And so, instead of trying to wrestle with Scripture concerning the Antichrist beast, making him into some human individual, she was shown that this beast was symbolic of Satan’s Antichrist world-system.

.

And the “Noble Berean” is encouraged to listen to audio Chapter 17 (almost at this page bottom) from her book, The Great Controversy, with these things in mind.

“Dear Lord, Help me to be an Noble Berean, that is, an open-minded seeker of truth, even if it means giving up a very highly regarded Church opinion! Let me be willing to investigate any seemingly new teaching if it appears to have some biblical validity…

TODAY’S FEATURED HEAVENLY SIGN

.

.

.

WHAT THIS PAGE IS ABOUT…

.

Corona Borealis Wikipedia Taken from software Perseus.

This page is concerned with the Glorious Crown (a.k.a. Corona Borealis Constellation), as is written… “And there appeared a great wonder (sign) in heaven; a woman…and upon her head a crown of twelve stars.” Revelation 12:1. 

.

corona borealis

.

This rather dim constellation follows behind that bright and beautiful star, Arcturus , as Arcturus leads a heavenly ambassage through the heavens each night in summer. 

.

many crowns happen to be studded with precious jewels. Well this heavenly crown is no exception! And though these “jewels” are stars, they represent the precious jewels spoken of throughout Scripture, when speaking about God’s people.

.

But this constellation is not nearly as high-profile as, say, the 7 Stars Constellation (a.k.a., The Big Dipper).  It is relatively dim, compared to those two bright constellations.

.

.

.

.

.

.

LOCATING THIS CROWN…

.

This constellation begins to appear in late December (just before dawn), but is best seen, mid-sky when this group of constellations can be seen when facing west. In March-April, very late in the pre-dawn hours, this Summer Constellation group begins to be seen when facing west, and continues to be seen in the west until fall.

.

The Crown follows almost directly behind that great star, Arcturus, as you can see in the sketch.

.

Repeat: it is somewhat easier to study the 12 stars of this constellation when it is in western half of night-sky (when you have to see it as you face westward). So when these Summer Constellations are in the western half of the sky, simply follow the handle of the Big Dipper till you locate Arcturus. Then the Crown is following Arcturus. You will only see the wreath-like 7 stars plus 1 star (in middle) until you get away from all city lights. Then you can make out the other 5 stars, which makes it appear like a full crown.

COMBINATION OF BOTH CORONA BOREALIS & BOOTES

.Wikipedia Star-Chart - Corona Borealis

This constellation is a combination of both Corona Borealis plus several stars from the Bootes Constellation.

.

The stars, Alkalyroos-Bootis and the Delta-Bootis Star are both combined with the other stars from the Corona Borealis community, to make this 12-star (plus 13th star in middle).
