When Lucifer left Heaven, he took up residence in this world (after he caused us to disobey the direct command of God.)

.

And being the super-genius that he is, Lucifer began to design this world to become his very own kingdom of selfishness.

ATHEISTIC UNBELIEF!

.

Now to the average citizen of this world, this all seems as like complete nonsense! Yes, one of Satan’s (Lucifer’s) last big deceptions is atheism, with all it various ideologies.

.

And the world, for the most part, has bought into this big lie, “lock, stock, and barrel”, to use an old expression. 

.

Yes, atheism has beclouded the sensibilities of the minds of men, so that they cannot see the truth!

.

Listen… “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 4:4

.

Yes, “the god of this world”, Satan, has blinded humanity, so that they cannot see the truth!

A MUCH BIGGER LIE !

.

And yet, atheism is not the world’s biggest lie! No, there is a much bigger lie than atheism! So what is that big lie? Just what is the biggest lie in all world, yea, in all the vast universe?

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:Greatglobe_sectional.png

.

Simple! The universe’s biggest lie is just this: This world!

.

That’s right! This world is the universe’s biggest Lie! It’s all a big fraud! It’s just a great big scam!

.

This whole big world is as phony as a Hollywood movie set!

WE MUST EAT AND LIVE HERE

.

.

Now someone will say, “What do you mean by calling this world a big scam?! After all, we have to eat and live and try to make the best of it in this world! We have to provide for our family’s needs and comfort and yes, even their happiness!”

.

Yes, yes, yes, all of the above statement is true!

.

But it is true only to a certain extent!

.

It is true that we are stuck here in this sad old world! And it’s true that we must try to make the best of things down here!

NOT TO FORGET WHERE WE ARE!

.

But as Christians, we must strike a delicate balance in this world. That is, while we must live and eat and work in this present world, we must not forget that this planet has been given over to Lucifer and his fellow rebels!

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:Martin,_John_-_Satan_presiding_at_the_Infernal_Council_-_1824.JPG

.

We must remember that this world has become his kingdom of darkness! Lucifer’s kingdom of selfishness, if you will. We need to keep in mind that all that is in the world, the lusts of the flesh, the lusts of the eyes and the pride of life are not the real thing! It’s all a big counterfeit! It is a big facade! As phony as the proverbial three-dollar bill!

.

Simply put, this world is Lucifer’s alternative to God’s government of truth and unselfish love! This world is just the opposite! This world is Lucifer’s government of lies and selfish pursuits! False ideologies, selfish pleasures and ambitious endeavors! These are what this world is made of!

CALLED OUT OF THIS DYING WORLD

.Christian in Pilgrim's Progress wiki pub dom.

And as strangers and pilgrims living on this foreign soil, we have been called out of this Vanity Fair world! Oh yes, we still must eat and drink and provide for the needs of our family.

.

And yet, at the same time, we must realize that we are standing on enchanted ground (as John Bunyan so well described this world!) We must not breathe in the narcotic-like rapturous mist which emanates up from the pores of this world-system! Because, it is so very easy to just lay down in Satan’s “poppy field” (this world), and get ourselves lost in one of his dreams!

HOW DO WE STAY AWAKE?

Now just how do we strangers and pilgrims keep from lying down and forgetting our great commission to seek after a better country, even a heavenly country? Just how are we to keep walking the pilgrim’s narrow pathway onward and upward into Heaven’s celestial City?

WATCHMEN ON THE WALLS OF ZION!

.

The Bible warns us… “Watch ye therefore: for ye know not when the Master of the http://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:USMC-06831.jpghouse cometh, at even, or at midnight, or at the cockcrowing, or in the morning: Lest coming suddenly He find you sleeping. And what I say unto you I say unto all, Watch!” Mark 13:35-37

.

The Bible is to be continually studied each day! The Bible is an integral part of being watchful! It is filled with many similar admonitions such as this above passage! And by unceasing prayer and constant meditation (contemplation) of the Bible, we are to keep ourselves from getting spiritually drowsy!

SO EASY TO GET DROWSY!

companys-coming - revised

.

But it is so easy to aside our prayer/Bible contemplation, and become too focused on this life!

.

But the moment we see that this is the case, we need to immediately wake ourselves up from our drowsiness and spiritual drunkenness, and return to our watchfulness and vigilance!

.

Listen… “Be sober, be vigilant; because your adversary the Devil, as a roaring lion, walketh about, seeking whom he may devour:” 2nd Peter 5:8

.

Yes, it is by losing our watchfulness that the Devil gains a foothold in our life! Then he breathes his narcotic-like influence over us and causes us to get lost in one of his tailor-made dreams!

FALSE PROPHET & BEAST’S IMAGE

Dream-Maker of Babylon

.

The false dreams of Satan are the essence of what the False Prophet of Revelation 13 is all about!

.

And this is what the image of the beast is composed of!

.

In other words, all of this present world-system is merely a world created in the image of Satan’s selfish imagination!

.

It is the world that he promised to his fellow rebels back in Heaven!

.

Oh no, none of them were expecting this world to lead to destruction and death!

.

They expected to live forever in this selfish kingdom!

.

But it didn’t work out that way.

.

.

.

.

.

THIS WORLD IS THE IMAGE OF SATAN’S HEART

.

So this present world is merely the product of Lucifer’s imagination!

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

.

And being the, “prince of the power of the air” (see Ephesians 2:2), he has the ability to become, “that spirit that now works in the the children of disobedience” (Ibid). He is the, “spirit of Antichrist” (1st John 4:1-5), that lives and thrives within the hearts of the children of men! He is the great power which energizes and falsely illuminates this fallen and dark world of selfish pleasures and proud aspirations! (See Matthew 12:43-45)

CUT LOOSE FROM THIS WORLD!

.

And so, my dear darling soul, we must make a decided departure out from this hellish kingdom and begin that upward journey out of this world!

.

And we must let go of anything that is preventing us from making this journey! We must cut away any unnecessary commitments which eat up our time and expend our energy, and begin to make prayer/Bible-contemplation our life’s devotion, throughout our each and every day!

.

We have everything to lose, and everything to gain! Eternal life! Eternal love! Eternal joy! Our family’s Salvation! All these and much more are hanging in the balance! All these and much more are dependent upon how we choose to live, this day forward!

.

We must not believe the lie! A watchful Christian is a happy Christian! Life becomes a true joy when are truly filled with God’s Spirit!

.

STILL A LITTLE TIME!

And though we have all been foolish in the past, God is graciously allowing us time to flee to the Rock and hide ourselves within the pages of the Bible!

.

There are a multitude of precious promises that must be hidden in our hearts if we ever expect to win the race before us

WALKING THE UPWARD PATHWAY!

.

God’s Spirit is that fire! And if we dwell in God’s Spirit, we dwell in true, agape love! Then will we dwell in the true light. And we can be busily gathering up the fragments of light beams emanating from all of nature’s beauty, and from the working’s of God, wherever they may be in the world!

.

And we will happily allow them to illuminate our pathway as we walk that joyful pathway, following Jesus, as He leads us onward and upward to the Heavenly Promised Land!

TODAY’S PRAYER…

“Dear Lord, Help me to fully understand just where we are! Let me not be carried away in a Devilish dream, and begin to seek after the things of this world. But fix my eyes Heaven-ward, as I continue up the pathway to Heaven…

THE ‘FIVE FOOLISH VIRGINS’ STARS

.Serpent Constellation

.

A new constellation has been revealed, as of about May 29th, 2014. This constellation appears as a serpent (snake). Its body is comprised of stars from the Bootes Constellation, and its jaws are made of the four stars which Babylonians saw as the head of Draco, the Dragon. It also has a small single star for an eye.

.

Now in this constellation is a group of five stars, which will be called “The ‘Five Foolish Virgins’ Stars”

Five Wise, Five Foolish Virgins Stars

.

These are located on the opposite side of the Glorious Crown of 12 Stars (AKA Corona Borealis), from the ‘Five Wise Virgins’ Stars. But one big difference between the two is, that The Five Wise are curved around the Glorious Crown, while the Five Foolish are curved away from it!
