Strong Delusion in Scripture

.

.

.

.

“…because they received not the love of the truth,

that they might be saved.

And for this cause God shall send them strong delusion,

that they should believe a lie:

That they all might be damned

who believed not the truth,

but had pleasure in unrighteousness.”

2nd Thessalonians 2:10-12

.

This above passage from Paul’s Epistle to the Thessalonians is one of the most fearful of all Bible passages.

.

It reveals that we must be faithful to God, and not the least bit presumptuous about our Christianity.

STRONG DELUSION OIN SCRIPTURE

.

But just how does God send them strong delusion?

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

Well, listen to the Apostle, Peter, as he explains one very definite way in which we might be deceived…

.

Listen… “As also in all his (Paul’s) epistles, speaking in them of these things; in which are some things hard to be understood, which they that are unlearned and unstable wrest, as they do also the other scriptures, unto their own destruction.” 2nd Peter 3:16

.

So from this above passage, it becomes apparent that there are things in Scripture which are difficult, and of such great importance, that those who are unlearned or unstable, may wrestle away the true meaning.

EARTHLY OR HEAVENLY RICHES?

.

Now one of the most glaring examples of the misinterpretation of Scripture is clearly seen in the prosperity-driven gospels.

. 

There are many Bible passages which speak of riches… “Receive, I pray thee, the law from His mouth, and lay up His words in thine heart…Then shalt thou lay up gold as dust, and the gold of Ophir as the stones of the brooks.” Job 22:22-24

.

Of course, all one has to do is merely take this passage literally, and come to the conclusion that God wishes to lavish earthly riches upon His children!

.

But the problem, that’s not how the Bible is properly interpreted!

.

.

.

.

THE CARNALLY-MINDED

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

.

No, listen to Paul as he explains the core of the problem here… But the natural man receiveth not the things of the Spirit of God: for they are foolishness unto him: neither can he know them, because they are spiritually discerned.” 1st Corinthians 2:13, 14

.

As this above verse reveals, there are many who are yet carnally-minded, and think that spiritual interpretations are foolishness.

TRUE RICHES ARE SPIRITUAL

.

So, by comparing spiritual things with spiritual, we find this next passage from Proverbs…

.

“I (wisdom) love them that love Me;

and those that seek Me early shall find Me.http://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:USMC-06831.jpg

Riches and honour are with Me;

yea, durable riches and righteousness.

My fruit is better than gold, yea, than fine gold;

and My revenue than choice silver.”

Proverbs 8:17-19

.

OK, so now it is revealed that true riches are the spiritual riches of wisdom and knowledge, and heavenly love!

PAUL’S WARNING ABOUT EARTHLY RICHES

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:New_york_times_square-terabass.jpg

.

Now, listen to God’s warning given by Paul… “And having food and raiment let us be therewith content. But they that will be rich fall into temptation and a snare, and into many foolish and hurtful lusts, which drown men in destruction and perdition.” 2nd Timothy 6:8, 9

.

So here is a little passage which entirely decimates this whole nonsense about earthly riches.

.

Paul here, warns Believers not to seek after earthly riches!

.

He warns that earthly riches bring misery and destruction upon their possessors.

DOUBLE-EDGED SWORD

Glittering Sword Constellation www.theheavensdeclare.net

.

There are many other pitfalls in the Bible, which those who have not yet received the gift of God’s Spirit, will stumble and fall into!

.

Listen to this next fearful passage… “For the Word of God is quick, and powerful, and sharper than any two-edged sword, piercing even to the dividing asunder of soul and spirit, and of the joints and marrow, and is a discerner of the thoughts and intents of the heart.” Hebrews 4:12, 13

.

So here is a very incredible passage which reveals the double-sided truth of the Bible!

.

Yes, the Bible reveals which spirit controls a person’s heart!

.

Those who are of an Antichrist spirit will, “stumble at the Word, being disobedient”. 1st Peter 2:8

.

But those who are spiritually-minded will find “the truth shall make you free”. John 8:32

REVELATION 12 WOMAN & NARROW GATE STARS

Winter Constellations in West

.

This most amazing phenomenon is seen throughout the winter. Although it can be observed most of the winter, it is seen best when it is the western part of the sky, at winter’s end (The end of winter being the final scene of this heavenly Gospel story). Orion , the Dragon, and the Glorious White Horse are beginning to descend into the western horizon (sketch to right is Winter Constellations descending into western horizon. This can actually be seen as early as December, in the pre-dawn hours).

.

And at this point it is apparent that the Fleeing Woman of Revelation 12 Constellation  is veering toward the two bright stars, known as Castor and Pollux (sketch to left). But the Wide Gate Stars are composed of the two brightest stars of the Auriga Constellation, known as the star, Capella, and the star, Menkalinan. The two stars, Castor and Pollux, make up the concept of the Orion’s Narrow Gate Stars.

Revelation 12 Woman & Orion's Gate & Wide Gate.

This can even be observed into June in the western sky (for a short time just after dark). While a dark night is best for seeing the Woman Constellation, the 4 stars which comprise the Narrow Gate/Wide Gate Stars can be seen even under mediocre conditions. It begins with the Fleeing Woman of Revelation 12 Constellation (AKA Ursa Major) going towards these two doors.

.

The sketch to left shows, the two doors are each composed of two bright stars. The two bright stars that comprise the Narrow Gate are the two brightest stars of the Orion the Reaper’s sickle. The two stars that comprise the ‘Wide Gate’ Stars are the two brightest stars of the wave of water that comes out of the Dragon Constellation’s mouth (for explanation of “Wave of Water”, just click here). The stars that make up the ‘Narrow Gate’ are about half the width of the Wide Gate (see sketch to right).

.

.

Editor’s note: These sketches on this page are merely sketches. The stars are not in their exact place. However, they are close enough to find them in the night sky. But as with most stars, it takes persistence to finally locate them.
