Judgment Day Now, Part 1: “Viewing Sex & Violence”

.

.

.

.

.

“Be not deceived:

evil communications corrupt good manners.”

1st Corinthians 15:33

.

So it’s getting increasingly hard to watch the daily news-feed on the Internet, or watch the nightly news on TV.

.

The violent crimes and sex crimes and societal hatred seem to be increasing on a daily basis!

But society insists that sex and violence on television, Internet, and computer games is their social right, and plays no significant role in the increase of these sins in everyday life in our decadent societies, today!

.

Well, is that true?

WHAT SAITH THE SCRIPTURES?

Of course, the Bible plainly reveals… “Be not deceived: evil communications corrupt good manners.” 1st Corinthians 15:33

.

So who are we supposed to believe? Society or the Bible?

“BECAUSE INIQUITY SHALL ABOUND, THE LOVE OF MANY SHALL WAX COLD”

Matthew 24:12

.

Case in point: three teenagers just beat a 33 year old man to death with hammers, the other day!

.

Unthinkable?

.

Yes! But if one were to do a little digging into their everyday diet of music and TV, and Internet, it would probably take very little inquiry to discover that sex and violence were a significant portion of their daily audio and visual and mental diet!

.

Unfortunately, these kinds of crimes are getting so frequent, this crime hardly even got a mention on the nightly news!

.

.

.

.

.

HAVE OUR CHICKENS COME HOME TO ROOST?

.

One vocal preacher made the comment… http://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:TV_highquality.jpg“America, your chickens have come home to roost!”

.

And even though he was coming from a completely different vantage point, yet what he said was true, in a certain sense!

.

Because, as we read the daily news feed, or watch the nightly news, we would have to say that, “Yes, indeed! Our chickens are coming home to roost!”

.

And by allowing our children to feed themselves with all the sex and violence on TV, games, Internet, and radio, CD’s, etc., it is little wonder that God is now giving us a healthy dose of our own ways!

“7 ANGELS HAVING THE 7 LAST PLAGUES”

Revelation 15:1http://christianimagesource.com/prophet_jeremiah_g341-prophet_jeremiah__image_2_p2281.html

.

Yes, perhaps our Judgment Day has finally come!

.

Listen to this… “I (the Lord) will recompense them according to their deeds, and according to the works of their own hands. For thus saith the LORD God of Israel unto me; Take the wine cup of this fury at My hand, and cause all the nations, to whom I send thee, to drink it.” Jeremiah 25:14, 15

.

There are many persons who mistakenly believe that the Old Testament is irrelevant or perhaps, a dead letter! But as this above passage from the Book of Jeremiah says, God will render to those nations, His cup of fury!

.

And it now seems as if we are beginning to drink of that wine cup of God’s fury!

KEEP ME SAFE, TILL THE STORM PASSES BY

.

And so, the question must be asked, “Just what am I to do about all this?”

.

“How can I escape the terrible judgments which are now beginning to fall all around me?”

.http://www.muskegonartmuseum.org/collections-gallery/gallery

.

Listen to the answer to this above question… “Come, My people, enter thou into thy chambers, and shut thy doors about thee: hide thyself as it were for a little moment, until the indignation be overpast. For, behold, the LORD cometh out of His place to punish the inhabitants of the earth for their iniquity: the earth also shall disclose her blood, and shall no more cover her slain.” Isaiah 26:20, 21

.

Here is where God’s people are to hide themselves during the coming days! There must be no delay!

HOW AND WHERE TO HIDE

.

But the question comes back again… “So how am I supposed to hide? And where am I supposed to hide?”

.http://www.muskegonartmuseum.org/collections-gallery/gallery

Well, God gives some further counsel for those who wish to be hidden from His terrible wrath which now seems to be spilling out of His cup of fury.

.

Listen… “Seek ye the LORD, all ye meek of the earth, which have wrought his judgment; seek righteousness, seek meekness: it may be ye shall be hid in the day of the LORD’S anger.” Zephaniah 2:3.

.

Yes, all tucked away in the little allegorical Book of Zephaniah is this very solid counsel, for those of us who are seriously seeking refuge from the approaching storm!

.

And so we must be seeking for righteousness and for meekness!

.

This is the message of the hour which is now going out to God’s people!

TODAY’S PRAYER…

.

“Dear Lord, Help me to be a good role-model for my family, as I begin to shun the unwholesome programs on the TV. Help me to replace this bad habit with good things which will lift up my family, as they begin to imitate my good example…

.The Strait Gate is the Narrow Way and the broad way is the Wide Gate

.

“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

THE NARROW WAY: THE PILGRIM’S PATHWAY

.

That world-shaking allegory, Pilgrim’s Progress by John Bunyan, picked up thhttp://simple.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:Pilgrim%27s_Progress_2.JPGe theme of the Narrow Gate. The hero of the story was Christian, a man who was warned to flee from the City of Destruction (the world), and to embark on a journey to the Heavenly City. And along the way, Christian encountered many adventures and dangers. This first of its kind allegorical book absolutely rocked the western world, and became perhaps the first million seller book (along with the Bible).

.

But God has also given this same Narrow Way parable in the night heavens! Incredible? Yes, incredible…and amazing too! And though these two stars can hardly be considered a constellation, but when sitting next to the two stars which comprise the Broad Gate, well, it makes a powerful statement, for the people of God. 

.

So please come along on this journey and find out just why this pathway graces the night heavens, and perhaps you might find yourself embarking on your own pilgrimage up that very same Narrow pathway.

LOCATION

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 below left).

.

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.
