“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 apects.

.

But in addition to giving nature the ability to become dangerous after the Fall of Man, God also designed nature to teach lessons about good and evil!

.

Yes, there are many creatures who exhibit appearances and behaviors, which teach us about heavenly virtues. But many aspects of nature teach lessons about Satan’s government of Hell!

CUTTLEFISH: THE ULTIMATE IMPOSTORS!

.

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

.Cuttlefish.ogv - Wikipedia - Share-alike License

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.

.

For instance, if it wants to hide from its enemies, or lie-in-wait for its victims, next to a sea-weed, it simply changes its color, spots, and shape to imitate that sea-weed. It can even instantly grow leaf-like appendages to imitate certain sea-weeds!

.

This little creature is nothing short of amazing!

SWIFTER THAN LEOPARDS

.

Cuttlefish.ogv - Wikipedia - Share-alike LicenseConservative Christianity is amazed to see the world turning against them so rapidly.

It makes one’s head spin to see Satan’s armies rise up against Christianity so quickly!

.

The prophet, Habakkuk alludes to this phenomenon… “Their horses also are swifter than the leopards,” Habakkuk 1:8

.

The paradigm shift which is now occurring around the world, is happening so rapidly, that it seems to fulfill this prophecy of Habakkuk.

TELEVISION & OTHER MEDIA

.

And speaking of being, “swifter than leopards”, television, Internet, radio and various printed media are coming against Christians and their children so rapidly, that it is like being caught in the crossfire of machine guns!

.

TV indoctrination

.

Yes, this prophecy of Habakkuk seems to be describing the various modern media and high-tech devices, which are now taking control of the minds of the human family at such an incredible speed that we hardly stand a chance against their powerfully persuasive programming!

PARADIGM SHIFT

.

Cuttlefish.ogv - Wikipedia - Share-alike License

For those living in this western culture, we marvel that all those traditions and values which our culture stood for, are now being, “tossed out the window”, as they say.

.

We thought that this society was a solid as the proverbial, “Rock of Gibraltar” in those traditions and Christian values.

.

But all of a sudden, those fundamental values have evaporated like “the morning dew”.

.

And now, all of a sudden, in the place of our long-held Christian values, Sodom & Gomorrah is rising up all around us.

.

Paganism is taking control of our children. Haters of basic human values are now fiercely and aggressively attacking those once-cherished standards!

.

And all this reminds us of Habakkuk’s words… “Their horses also are swifter than the leopards, and are more fierce than the evening wolves: and their horsemen shall spread themselves, and their horsemen shall come from far; they shall fly as the eagle that hasteth to eat. They shall come all for violence: their faces shall sup up as the east wind, and they shall gather the captivity as the sand.” Habakkuk 1:8, 9

WHY ARE WE SURPRISED?

.

Cuttlefish.ogv - Wikipedia - Share-alike License

Now all this sudden change of mind should not surprise us.

.

It’s a cuttlefish world, after all!

.

Satan has merely been camouflaging the true nature of this world. It seemed friendly for a while.

.

But like the cuttlefish, it was merely disguising itself until the moment it would strike its victim! Us!

.

But now, the world is beginning to unmask its true satanic nature!

.

And what we thought was a pretty nice and friendly world, is now beginning again, to become the tyrant it already once was.

HABAKKUK SAYS “RUN!”

.

And so, the prophet Habakkuk saw the vision in which the wicked would envelope God’s people to the point that the true Gospel would be perverted and the children of God would be overwhelmed by unholy influences…

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

Listen to Habakkuk’s vision… “Therefore the law is slacked, and judgment doth never go forth: for the wicked doth compass about the righteous; therefore wrong judgment proceedeth.” Habakkuk 1:4

.

This sinful world is now forcing its wickedness on God’s people as surely as the Sodomites tried to force themselves on Lot’s house, the last night before its destruction!

.

Yes, we are living in that very day! And Satan is about ready to attack God’s people as viciously as that cuttlefish snatches its victim in its deadly jaws.

WHERE MUST WE FLEE?

.

So what are we to do?

Listen to God’s command… “And the LORD answered me, and said, Write the vision, and make it plain upon tables, that he may run that readeth it. For the vision is yet for an appointed time, but at the end it shall speak, and not lie: though it tarry, wait for it; because it will surely come, it will not tarry.” Habakkuk 2:2, 3

.

Yes, just as Lot was commanded to flee Sodom on that fateful morning, so now, God’s people are to flee this evil society. But we cannot flee to the literal mountains, as did our fathers in the day when the European apostate churches persecuted true Christians.

.

No, but now we must flee to the spiritual mountains, which this website has revealed.

I live by the faith of the Son of God,

who loved me, and gave Himself for me.”

7 STARS IMITATE THE CROSS OF ORION

.

.

.

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

The Cross of Orion Constellation star-chart

.

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!
