TALE OF TWO WOMEN

.

.

.

.

.

Throughout Scripture there is a common thread found, beginning in Gehttp://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:Julius_Schnorr_von_Carolsfeld-_Ruth_im_Feld_des_Boaz.jpgnesis, and running all the way through to Revelation. It is the tale of two women: one good and one evil. One woman is a harlot and the other is a virtuous woman. From Genesis, in which Eve abandoned her pure and noble beginnings to pursue sin, to Revelation, which showcased both a harlot (Chapters 17 & 18), and the virtuous woman of Revelation 12, the Bible constantly speaks of two women: one virtuous, and one evil.

.

And knowing that the Bible is filled with symbolism, many people are perplexed as to just who or what these two women represent.

.

.

PAUL FINALLY REVEALS WHAT

.

THESE TWO WOMEN REPRESENT

.

The Bible makes it abundantly clear that women are quite often a symbol of the Church: an adulterous woman symbolizing the Church-Apostate. And a virtuous woman symbolizing the Church-Faithful. Paul makes the most incredible and bold http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:PaulT.jpgcomparison of Abraham’s wife Sarah and her handmaid, Hagar to the Old and New Covenants! Paul really lays all out for us to see, comparing Sarah, the chosen wife, to the Church-Faithful, and Hagar the adulterous Egyptian, to the Church-Apostate. Just listen carefully to the below passage…

.

“Which things (Sarah & Hagar) are an allegory: for these are the two covenants; the one from the mount Sinai, which genders to bondage, which is Hagar. For this Hagar is mount Sinai in Arabia, and answers to Jerusalem which now is, and is in bondage with her children. But Jerusalem which is above is free, which is the mother of us all.” Galatians 4:24-26.

.

So these two women, representing the two divisions of Jerusalem, actually concern those still in bondage to sin, and those who are free in Christ: the Church-free & the Church-bound-in-sin.

CHURCH-FAITHFUL & CHURCH-UNFAITHFUL

.

And this is the great recurring theme in Scripture: two women, a virtuous woman and an adulterous, whorish woman. This above passage from Galatians really nails down a great concept, namely this: that Scripture presents literal historical events which God orchestrated, in order to present a spiritual concept.

.

Paul, of course, has correctly spiritualized the story of Abraham, Sarah and Hagar and their children as a picture of the Church, both the apostate portion and the True Worshippers of God.

WHICH JERUSALEM DO I BELONG TO?

.

Now just how does this relate to me, the individual, who claims to be a child of God? Well, obviously, I belong to either one of these two groups: either I am still in bondage and slavery to sin (picture left), or I am born again into God’s heavenly city (picture right). The “Parable of the Five Wise & the Five Foolish Virgins” is a picture of the two portions of God’s house.

.

Now if I find that I am still in bondage to sin, then I have to be honest enough to admit it, and begin to plead with God to bring me into a right relationship with Him.

.

And in the coming weeks will such means of deliverance be discussed in those soon-coming daily devotionals.

THE TWO WOMEN OF THE PLEIADES

.

Then Job answered and said…but how should man be just with God?…Which alone spreads out the heavens…Which makes Arcturus, Orion, and Pleiades, and the chambers of the south. Which does great things past finding out; yea, and wonders without number…Can you bind the sweet influences of the Pleiades? Or loose the bands of Orion?” Job 9:2-10 & 38:31

The photo to the right is the Pleiades Cluster. Does it appear to you like an angel? Well, if it does, then you are encouraged to keep reading.

.

The above two verses concerning the Pleiades is what the Bible has to say about the Pleiades. The Pleiades represents concepts which span much of the Bible. This is partly because Pleiades is a constellation within a constellation. And this double-entendre constellation is perhaps the greatest truth regarding the Church, found in the Bible.

TWO CONSTELLATIONS IN PLEIADES

.

The Pleiades: Mystery Babylon: Mother of Harlots

.

Just who are these two women? And how can this be, that nobody has ever seen the Pleiades as a constellation of a woman?

.

Captive Angel Constellation

.

In the picture on the left, the Pleiades appears as the Harlot of Revelation 17. In the picture to the right, we also see this second depiction of The Pleiades as an angel, which symbolizes God’s people, walking the downward pathway to destruction. They must be called out of Babylon before it’s too late!
