“And we know that we are of God,

and the whole world lieth in wickedness.”

1st John 5:19

God originally created this world to be a beautiful home for Mankind.

.

Yet when we fell from grace, this world began to change in many ways.

.

Nature, to a certain extent, began to take on some changes.

.

Many creatures and plants, etc., gradually took on dangerous aspects.

CUTTLEFISH: THE ULTIMATE IMPOSTORS!

.

One of the most amazing creatures ever created is the Cuttlefish!

.

Actually, it is not a fish, but a type of mollusk, like a squid, or an octopus.

The reason why this creature is so incredible, is that it can just glance at its environment and instantly change its body to imitate that environment.

.

It can even instantly grow leaf-like appendages to imitate certain sea-weeds, waiting for its victim!

.

This little creature is nothing short of amazing!

CUTTLEFISH: SYMBOL OF SATAN

.

Well, God has created this little predator to give us further insight into the inner working of the kingdom of Satan.

.

Certainly Satan and his unseen minions love to make themselves invisible! That way, they can work their misery and woe upon this unsuspecting world, without its inhabitants becoming alarmed, causing us to rebel against Satan’s kingdom, as we flee to God for refuge!

.

(As this above little 26 second video shows, the Cuttlefish has the ability to paralyze his potential victims, by using his strobe-light effect! Amazing!)

.

.

.

.

.

SATAN HAS ERASED HIMSELF

.

Yes, this world has the deceptive appearance of being void of any spiritual realm.

.

And we go about our day un-cognizant that we are surrounded by angels, both good and evil, fighting over each man, woman, and child. 

.

But as we look at this Cuttlefish, and how he waits in hiding, until he pounces upon his unsuspecting prey, we can make another earthly analogy!

.

HUMAN CUTTLEFISH

.

You see, Satan has infiltrated the Church of God with human Cuttlefish…

.

Listen… “For such are false apostles, deceitful workers, transforming themselves into the apostles of Christ. And no marvel; for Satan himself is transformed into an angel of light. Therefore it is no great thing if his ministers also be transformed as the ministers of righteousness; whose end shall be according to their works.” 2nd Corinthians 11:13-16

.

As this above passage reveals, Satan brings false brethren into the Church, imitating, “ministers of righteousness”

ALL ARE MINISTERS

.

“…Therefore it is no great thing if his (Satan’s) ministers also be transformed as the ministers of righteousness; whose end shall be according to their works.” 2nd Corinthians 11:13-16

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:PS_Kr%C3%B8yer_-_Hip_hip_hurra!_Kunstnerfest_p%C3%A5_Skagen_1888.jpg

.

But we must not get the idea that this above passage is speaking only of pastors.

.

No, any false brother is a minister of Satan, i.e., “ministers of righteousness”! Whether it be a pastor, or elder, or deacon, or merely a church-goer, these Antichrist impostors are Satan’s, “ministers of righteous”, as their world-loving lifestyle works its leavening effect throughout the entire congregation.

.

And these false brethren, like that incredible Cuttlefish, are transformed so closely into the image of a Christian, that quite often, it is virtually impossible to distinguish them from the true Christian!

NATURE OUR TEACHER

.

“But ask now the beasts, and they shall teach thee; and the fowls of the air, and http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:Aptenodytes_forsteri_-Snow_Hill_Island,_Antarctica_-adults_and_juvenile-8.jpgthey shall tell thee: Or speak to the earth, and it shall teach thee: and the fishes of the sea shall declare unto thee. Who knoweth not in all these that the hand of the LORD hath wrought this? In whose hand is the soul of every living thing, and the breath of all mankind.” Job 12:7-10

.

And so, the Christian can learn much from nature.

.

We just need to pay closer attention to the little teachers throughout nature.

7 STARS IMITATE THE CROSS OF ORION

The Cross of Orion Constellation star-chart

.

 This phenomenon begins in late October, in the pre-dawn hours. It then begins a little earlier each night.

.

The Wikipedia star-chart to the left, has this Orion Constellation sketched in. You must locate Orion, when it is mid-sky, between east and west. You’ll be facing southward most likely, unless you are far south. Try to imagine it as a Cross on a steep hill. The 3-star belt of Orion becomes the crest of the hill. The 3 very faint stars that make up Orion’s head become the very top of the Cross.

.

Next, locate the 7 Stars Constellation. This 7 Stars Constellation is seen by facing northward. It stands upright a little later in the night. Eventually, Orion will lay down and no longer be seen as an uplifted Cross! Beginning in November, the 7 Stars (AKA Big Dipper) can be seen as a Cross a little bit later in evening.

.

When you are comfortable in locating Orion & The 7 Stars Constellations, then show a friend. This can be a great witnessing tool!
