Look Up, Lift Up Your Head, Part 4: “The Heavenly Scroll, Rolled Up!”

.

.

.

.

.

Jesus spoke to His disciples about the various signs of the end, and of His Second http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:Starry_Night_at_La_Silla.jpgComing. And among the various signs, was Luke 21:25…

.

“And there shall be signs in the sun, and in the moon, and in the stars; and upon the earth distress of nations, with perplexity; the sea and the waves roaring;” Luke 21:25-27

SIGNS OF HEAVEN

.

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

Now this website has the privilege of revealing these signs. And so of course, the Reader is encouraged to begin to deeply explore this website to the point, that he or she is so familiar with everything written, that they can then go outside and merely look up, and God will reveal all these heavenly messengers as they sparkle and shine in the heavens!

.

But this Part 3, will hopefully encourage both of us to look up, and lift up our heads, just as verse 28 of Luke commands…  “And when these things begin to come to pass, then look up, and lift up your heads; for your redemption draweth nigh.”

THE HEAVENS…AS A SCROLL, ROLLED UP!

.

However, this message, written in the heavens, will not be seen by those who are yet in opposition to Heaven, whether they be free or bond. 

.

Thus will be fulfilled the prophecy which forewarns… “And the heaven departed as a scroll when it is rolled together” Revelation 6:14

.

.

.

.

.

SUN, MOON & STARS DARKENED

.

Yes, this divine message is as a scroll, as it graces the daily and nightly heavens! But it cannot be seen unless it is divinely revealed…

.

Signs Of Heaven - Winter Constellations

.

Listen…“Behold, the day of the LORD cometh, cruel both with wrath and fierce anger, to lay the land desolate: and he shall destroy the sinners thereof out of it. For the stars of heaven and the constellations thereof shall not give their light: the sun shall be darkened in his going forth, and the moon shall not cause her light to shine.” Isaiah 13:9, 10  

.

While this above passage has great spiritual implications, it can also be understood literally, as it applies to the “signs in the Sun, Moon and stars”. 

.

.

.

.

.

A LOVE STORY STRETCHED FROM SKY-TO-SKYhttp://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:Starry_Night_at_La_Silla.jpg

.

Yes, this heavenly message is as a scroll in the heavens! It not only tells of the wonderful love story of Christ and His Elect people.

.

But it is a prophecy and a warning of things to come, both awesome and fearful!

.

And yet, to study this message requires the blessing of God’s Holy Spirit.

HARDHEARTEDNESS IN GOD’S CAMP

.

But the sad fact is, there are many faithful church-going individuals who desire to http://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:PProg_09_p29_Obstinate.jpg?uselang=desee the marvelous heavenly signs foretold by Scripture, and yet cannot, nor will not give any credence to these signs. No, they will not even entertain this heavenly message for one moment, because it does not agree with their preconceived notions about the nature of the heavenly signs which the Bible foretold would someday occur.

.

But instead, they are looking for cataclysmic phenomena, which will be witnessed by the entire world! Great explosions in space, or perhaps giant meteors, or awesome and fiery starry showers.

GOD’S SIGNS TEACH US

.

But what they do not consider is that whenever God gave a sign, it was always accompanied by a much-needed message for His people.

.

http://www.wikigallery.org/wiki/painting_334242/Frederik-van-Valkenborch/Jonah-And-The-Whale

.

Take, for instance the story of Jonah…

.

Jesus plainly told the people…“For as Jonas was three days and three nights in the whale’s belly; so shall the Son of man be three days and three nights in the heart of the earth.” Matthew 12:40

.

Jesus connected the story of Jonah with His death on the Cross, and His Resurrection after three days and three nights! Because His people were greatly in error, and needed http://christianimagesource.com/prophet_jonah_g213-prophet_jonah__image_5_p1214.htmlcorrection and instruction.

.

In other words, God’s signs always point His people back to the straight and true pathway to the Celestial City of God!

.

Yes, the pathway to Heaven has been greatly obscured by false ideas, worldly compromise, and unbiblical jargon and terminology. And only those who are willing to leave their road to destruction will see this message, and return back to the true pathway!

COME OUT OF BABYLON!

.

Because let’s face it! The Christian community has become a veritable “Babylon of http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:Tissot_The_Flight_of_the_Prisoners.jpgconfusion!” Confusing and conflicting ideas abound! And God is just now calling His people to come out of this “City of Confusion”

.

Listen…“And I heard another voice from Heaven, saying, Come out of her (Babylon), My people, that ye be not partakers of her sins, and that ye receive not of her plagues. ” Revelation 18:4

.

Yes, there is just now, a modern-day Exodus out of our spiritual captivity.

AS A LITTLE CHILD…

.

Yes, there is Good News! For those who would like to see this heavenly message, the call goes out…“And (Jesus) said, Verily I say unto you, Except ye be converted, and become as little children, ye shall not enter into the kingdom of Heaven.” Matthew 18:3

.

God is not looking for scholarly intelligentsia! No, God is rather looking for meek and humble followers with true, childlike faith! (Yes, there is a false faith, which is not childlike, but proud and defiant!)

WISE MEN STILL FOLLOW HIM…

.Wise Men (Magi) From East Follow Star To Bethlehem-www.signsofheaven.org-public domain release

.

And just like those wise men of old, who followed that star which led them to the first advent of our Savior, God is now calling out many wise men who are likewise willing to follow Arcturus, as He leads His sons (and daughters) on this Heaven-ward pilgrimage to meet the Bridegroom!

.

.

.

.

.

AS NOBLE BEREANS

.

So, the bottom line to all this is: let us no longer be stiff-necked and hard-hearted, but rather, meek as little children, as we search the Scriptures daily, hoping that these things are true and biblically sound!http://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:USMC-06831.jpg

.

“They looked unto Him, and were lightened: and their faces were not ashamed. This poor man cried, and the LORD heard him, and saved him out of all his troubles…Come, ye children, hearken unto Me: I will teach you the fear of the LORD.” Psalm 34:5, 6, 11

.

There are many scholarly individuals within the walls of Zion. But only those who become like little children will have their eyes enlightened to see the hidden manna, such as these signs written in the Sun, Moon, and stars!

TODAY’S FEATURED HEAVENLY SIGN

.

.

.

A HEAVENLY HOBBY

.

“Lift up your eyes on high, and behold Who hath created these things; that brings out their host by number: He calls them all by names by the greatness of his might, for that He is strong in power; not one faileth.” Isaiah 40:26

.

The above verse is a plea from God to look up at the Heavens and behold Who has created these things.

.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:1_vermont_night_stargazing_panorama_2009.jpg

.

In this very interesting world, there are many, many, things which can occupy one’s time and energy: hobbies, and careers, and entertainments and worries, and habits, to name just a few. But as the child of God devotes his or her life to God, there should be a jealous guarding of one’s own heart. “Keep thy heart with all diligence; for out of it are the issues of life.” Proverbs 4:23. The Christian wants nothing to get in the way of running that Christian Race.

.

.

.

.

“AND WHEN YE SEE THESE THINGS…

.

LOOK UP, LIFT UP YOUR HEAD!”

.

“And there shall be signs in the sun, and in the moon, and in the stars…And when these things begin to come to pass, then look up, and lift up your heads; for your redemption draweth nigh. ” Luke 21:25, 28

.http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:Astronomy_Amateur_3_V2.jpg

.

But having said this, there is one hobby which the ‘Noble Berean’ may take up, which only compliments the pursuit of the heavenly Prize. Signs Of Heaven becomes a wonderfully rewarding hobby which, unlike many less meaningful hobbies, pays off with rich heavenly rewards.

.

And unlike these people with equipment, all you need is fairly good vision, and a dark, starry night.

.

And once a person really gets to know these heavenly messengers, it will become very apparent that the message connected with these signs is truly a message to be heeded. Thus will the Christian be able to share this message with others. And there are perhaps many aspects and hidden meanings to these signs which have yet to be discovered.
