TODAY’S DEVOTIONAL – NOVEMBER 4TH

.

.

.

A ROSE BY ANY OTHER NAME

.

IS STILL A ROSE…

.

(AND THE DEVIL, BY ANY OTHER NAME IS STILL THE DEVIL)

“Jesus saith unto them, If ye were Abraham’s children, ye would do the works of Abraham. Ye are of your father the devil, and the lusts of your father ye will do.” John 8:39, 44

.

Lucifer knows that in order to have himself worshipped, doesn’t require the world to believe that he even exists. It only requires for people to love his attributes. The Bible points out, that a mere name has no power. It’s the qualities of character that determine just who our God is.

.

When the children of Israel claimed to be children of Abraham, Jesus plainly pointed out that it is useless to invoke a name, and yet deny the character behind that name.

.

Listen… “They answered and said unto Him, Abraham is our father. Jesus saith unto them, If ye were Abraham’s children, ye would do the works of Abraham…Ye are of your father the Devil, and the lusts of your father ye will do. ” John 8:39, 44.

.

These were God’s professed people, whom Jesus called the children of the Devil! Because even though they invoked the name of God, they possessed the selfish attributes of the Devil.

A WORLD OF SELFISH TOKENS (IDOLS)

.

And so Satan works undercover, so as to make the world believe that he doesn’t exist. And thus, having “erased himself out of existence”, he then creates a world, filled with idols…which are tokens of his attributes. By so-doing, he accomplishes his grand scheme…to gain the homage he desires, by causing Earth’s inhabitants to love this present sinful and selfish world that Lucifer has designed; a world with all its desires of the flesh, desires of the eyes, and all its proud attainments (see 1st John 2:16).

.

Listen… “And they (the people of the world) worshipped the dragon which gave power unto the beast: and they worshipped the beast, saying, Who is like unto the beast? who is able to make war with him?” Rev. 13:4.

.

And so, this passage is fulfilled, simply by the people of the world, loving this world-system, with all its selfish wares and proud ways.

.

.

.

.

.

.

WHOSE CHARACTER DO WE LOVE?…

.

“If we say that we have fellowship with Him, and walk in darkness, we lie, and do not the truth: But if we walk in the light, as He is in the light, we have fellowship one with another, and the blood of Jesus Christ His Son cleanseth us from all sin.” 1st John 1:6, 7

.

This above verse lays out plainly, just what the Lord expects from His followers. But this passage also is a dividing line between those who serve God and those who don’t.

.

And so, we don’t need to bow down to a statue of a pagan idol, in order to pay homage to Lucifer. He doesn’t need us to sign some contract, to sell our soul, as this picture to the right shows!

.

Simply by pursuing the things of this, the Devil’s world; by conforming ourselves to the customs, vanities and behaviors of this unbelieving world, are we not worshiping the author of this present evil World-System…Lucifer, who Scripture refers to as “the prince of this world” John 14:30?

TODAY’S FEATURED HEAVENLY SIGN

.

THE REVELATION 12 DRAGON

.

“And there appeared another wonder in heaven; and behold a great red dragon, having seven heads and ten horns, and seven crowns upon his heads…And there was war in heaven: Michael and his angels fought against the dragon; and the dragon fought and his angels,” Revelation 12:3, 7

.

THIS DRAGON IS NOT DRACO! First, let it be stated, that this Dragon Constellation is not the same constellation commonly referred to as “Draco” (photo to right is Draco, AKA Ursa Minor).

.

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

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.

LOCATION…

.

THE DRAGON OF REVELATION 12 CONSTELLATION. The star-charts below 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.

winter three fixed

.

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

.

WAVE OF WATER

.

The Wave of Water is primarily composed of the Constellation Auriga. The are two more less bright stars which are closest to the Dragon’s mouth. These two dimmer stars are also part of this Wave of Water.
