“And then shall that Wicked be revealed…

Even him, whose coming is after the working of Satan

with all power and signs and lying wonders,”

2nd Thessalonians 2:8, 9 (condensed)

.

.

Now there have been many who claim to have the power of hypnotism.

.

And many more have sought after this phenomenon, for the mere novelty, but in some instances, for relief from various maladies: the results often being very short-term.

.

But for the most part, the Christian community stays far away from this practice, and for a very good reason: it has Satan’s fingerprints written all over it!

CUTTLEFISH: THE GREAT IMPOSTOR

.

Now, speaking of hypnotism, 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 octopus.

.

One 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!

.

As a matter of fact, whatever the Cuttlefish passes over, it instantly begins to change into the same color and shape, of that undersea object!

CUTTLEFISH: SYMBOL OF SATAN

.http://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:Sepia_officinalis_Cuttlefish_striped_breeding_pattern.jpg

.

But there is another amazing aspect to this little impostor.

.

When it sees that it is close to a kill, it turns its body into a fluorescent strobe-light, paralyzing its victim, just prior to snatching the little creature in its powerful jaws!

.

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

SATAN’S HYPNOTIC POWERS

.

Now this Cuttlefish helps us to understand the world around us!

.

Yes, we live in a world that has been paralyzed by Satan’s magnetism!

.

Oh yes, it’s not hard to prove this statement! Just go to any corner, and try to convince a passer-by that Jesus is the Son of God and wants to give them eternal life.

.

Well, you would http://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:Anger_during_a_protest_by_David_Shankbone.jpgthink that people would jump at the chance to live forever!

.

And yet, it’s just about guaranteed that any secular person will shrug you off, and continue walking by!

.

Or just go to a person connected to some false gospel out there, and try to convince them that they are in error, and invite them to a Bible study.

.

Well, it won’t be long until you realize that your words are just not sinking in!

THE GOD OF THIS WORLD

.

http://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:Sepia_officinalis_Cuttlefish_striped_breeding_pattern.jpg

The fact is, we live in a world in which the earth’s inhabitants have been hypnotized by the god of this world, the Devil…

.

Listen… “But if our gospel be hid, it is hid to them that are lost: In whomhttp://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:Martin,_John_-_Satan_presiding_at_the_Infernal_Council_-_1824.JPG the god of this world hath blinded the minds of them which believe not, lest the light of the glorious gospel of Christ, who is the image of God, should shine unto them.”  2nd Corinthians 4:3, 4

.

As this above passage reveals, the people of this world have been blinded by the Devil.

.

Oh no, they are not literally blind. But Satan has closed off their minds to the point that they cannot understand what you are trying to tell them!

.

You might have better luck going to a graveyard, and shouting the Good News of Salvation to all those graves! (At the most, there might be the graveyard care-taker nearby, who hears you!)

HYPNOTIZED WORLD

.

But just like those dead people in their graves, so too, the Bible tells us… “And you hath HE quickened, http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:Castillo_de_Disneyland.jpgwho were dead in trespasses and sins: Wherein in time past ye walked according to the course of this world, according to the prince of the power of the air, the spirit that now worketh in the children of disobedience:” Ephesians 2:1, 2

.

Here is seen a huge concept: that we all were all spiritually dead in trespasses and sins, prior to our salvation.

.

And we all were unable to hear the Gospel you were trying to convey to us!

.

We couldn’t hear you, because we were under the hypnotic powers of, “the Prince of the Power of the Air, the spirit that now works in the children of disobedience.”

PARALYZED CHRISTIANITY

.

http://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:Sepia_officinalis_Cuttlefish_striped_breeding_pattern.jpg

But the sad fact is, for the greater part of Christendom, this same Cuttlefish hypnotism has paralyzed those who call themselves Christians!

.

Oh you don’t believe it?

.

Well, listen to Paul as he foretells of this very day we now live in… “For the time will come when they will not endure sound doctrine; but after their own lusts shall they heap to themselves teachers, having itching ears; And they shall turn away their ears from the truth, and shall be turned unto fables.” 2nd Timothy 4:3, 4

.

Yes, the time has come that only the “itching ears” gospels are thriving! 

.

It’s just about guaranteed that some form of a prosperity-driven gospel is being preached there, either by word or by example!

“REMEMBER LOT’S WIFE!”

Luke 17:32http://christianimagesource.com/lot_bible_g114-lot_bible__image_2_p440.html

.

Like Lot’s wife, we have likewise looked back at the world, with all its hedonistic pleasures and proud attainments!

.

Yes, the church-world is turning into a pillar of salt, or so it seems!

THE GLITTERING, HYPNOTIZING TREASURES OF THIS WORLD

And like a giant Cuttlefish, Satan has hypnotized us, with the glittering tinsel-like treasures and earthly pleasures of this very deceptive world!

.

And to a great extent, God’s people have bought into this lie of the False Prophet, Satan, who brings us a false gospel with the Church in one hand, but the world in the other!

HIGH-TECH HYPNOTIZING

.http://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:TV_highquality.jpg

 

And now, with the modern-day high-tech devices, both we and our children are being hypnotized to an even greater degree, if that’s possible!

.

Yes, justhttps://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:Texting_closeup.jpg walk down any street and notice the young people with their noses buried in their high-tech device.

.

Or try to greet them, and they simply cannot hear you, with their listening device in their ears.

.

.

Or take a walk at night through any neighborhood and see the fluorescent lights of the TV glowing in the front windows.

LOOK UP, LIFT UP YOUR HEADS!

.

So what can we do about this sad and frightful situation within the church-community?

.

Well, if you the reader, can hear the words of this warhttp://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:Starry_Night_at_La_Silla.jpgning and plea, then that’s really Good News!

.

And the only thing you and I can do, is to immediately pray for grace and strength to turn away from all this hypnotism which is just now flooding society and the churches, via this high-tech world.

.

The Bible warns us… “And when these things begin to come to pass, then look up, and lift up your heads; for your redemption draweth nigh.”

.

Not only are we to lift up our heads to look for Jesus, but we must take our eyes off this mesmerizing world, with all its current-day mind-control, which the great False Prophet (Satan) has designed to hypnotize us and our children!

TODAY’S FEATURED HEAVENLY SIGN

.

.

CASTOR AND POLLUX & THE NARROW WAY…

.

“And after three months we departed in a ship of Alexandria, which had wintered in the isle, whose sign was Castor and Pollux.” Acts 28:11

.

Most theologians interpret this verse to be speaking of two pagan gods known as Castor and Pollux. Beyond that, they are puzzled as to what significance do these twin gods have. Some believe these gods to be the patrons of safe ocean travel. Certainly God would never want His people to board such a pagan ship!

.

But there is much significance to Castor and Pollux. No, not to those twin-gods. But there are two stars named Castor and Pollux. They are twin-stars, and not twin-gods. They are the two bright stars of the constellation commonly known as Gemini. But as “Signs Of Heaven” points out, these two stars also happen to be the two brightest stars on Orion’s sickle.

.

And these two stars are also known as The Narrow Gate Stars. And if you will explore this concept, you will see that Castor and Pollux possess great significance… 

.

“Enter ye in at the strait gate: for wide is the gate, and broad is the way, that leadeth to destruction, and many there be which go in thereat: Because strait is the gate, and narrow is the way, which leadeth unto life, and few there be that find it.” Matthew 7:13-14. Castor and Pollux represent this Biblical concept of the Narrow Way.

LOCATING THIS GROUP…

.

.

These two sketches below are the same picture, one with stars only, the other with embellishments. These stars appear more or less like this when they are in the western sky, just before they sink below the western horizon (please excuse the less-than 100% accurate sketch). At the top of the sketches in the center is the Big Dipper. But with other surrounding stars, the Big Dipper is known as Ursa Major or the Great Bear. But as this website points out, Ursa Major is actually the Revelation 12 Woman. (Ursa Major appears much larger in the sky than this sketch shows. But in order to fit her into this drawing, the artist had to depict her much smaller)
