CASTLE OF SAND

.

All of a sudden, our “Motherhood, apple-pie, and the flag society, has morphed into somewhat of a tyrannical beast, complete with sharp teeth!

.

So what happened!?! It seems that we are witnessing a paradigm shift, that is occurring with, “the swiftness of the leopards, and are more fierce than the evening wolves”! (see Habakkuk 1:8)

.

Yes, we all thought this society was as solid as the Rock of Gibraltar! But now it seems to be as weak as the proverbial castle of sand!

IT’S ALL FALLING APART!

.http://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:ISIL_Execution_of_man_September_2014.jpg

As we look around, we are shocked and amazed at what we now see! When we see Christian businessmen having to close up shop, it is very disconcerting! When we see the courts handing down ridiculous and unjust decisions, we are filled with anger!

.

When we see huge corporations paying off congressmen, to oppress us, we feel helpless! When the schools begin to promote sexual perversion as the norm, we are amazed!

TV indoctrination

.

When eastern religions move in, and begin to take over the very nations which once enthusiastically embraced the Christian Reformation, we are greatly saddened!

.

The television, thttp://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:NOMG01ThankGodForSatan.jpghe radio, the Internet, newspapers and magazines are beginning to appear like brainwashing machines! The young people pass by on the streets, wearing pagan-like ornaments, and greet us with a growl! We hear their music filled with violence and cursings!

.

We read of unthinkable crimes! Our government is committing financial suicide! Public nudity beginning to be legalized! Unisex bathrooms now replacing the old gender-based restrooms!

Children being kidnapped and sold into slavery by the millions! Churches now beginning to embrace the morals of Sodom and Gomorrah! 

.

You could probably sum up the whole world situation today, by merely saying… “judgment is turned away backward, and justice stands afar off: for truth is fallen in the street, and equity cannot enter.” Isaiah 59:14

.

Yes, justice and goodness and truth seems to be dying, as far as this world is concerned!

HELL: THE SPIRITUAL DARKNESS ALL AROUND US

.

It seems as if Christians don’t understand where we are. Yes, we have forgotten that this is Hell. Oh no, it’s not Sheol, the grave. But the loyal citizens of this kingdom of Satan are in the same spiritual darkness as the fallen angels!

.

And so, just what were you expecting from Hell!?! Did we think that somehow our society had a hedge around it, that Satan couldn’t break through?

.

Listen… “For all the gods of the nations are idols: but the LORD made the heavens.” Psalms 96:5

.

Now are we so naive as to believe this above verse does not apply to our nation? Why, there are perhaps more idols in this nation than most other nations! Our idols of fashionable cars! Our idols of expensive homes! our idols of television, and radio and Internet! Idols of faddish clothes! Our idols of money, and idols of enviable careers! We have our idol musicians, and our sports heroes! And our idols of movie “stars”! Oh we could go on and on, and never run out of idols to enumerate!

.

The point is, if ever God looked down with favor upon this nation, that day has long since passed!

AN ANTICHRIST WORLD!

.

We must not forget that we are living in an Antichrist world!

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

The Antichrist spirit of falsehood dwells within the people of this world! Satan is called, “the god of this world”! 2nd Corinthians 4:4

.

Whether we like it or not, this world and all its inhabitants are living in spiritual darkness and spiritual blindness! They are indwelt by the, “prince of the power of the air” (see Ephesians 2:2).

THE MASK IS BEING REMOVED

.

The problem is, that we were convinced that this nation was some sort of bastion of justice and righteousness.

Well, even if there is a modicum of truth to that statement, our society has been eroding for many decades.

.

And now the mask has been completely removed, and what we are now seeing is a nation which we don’t even recognize! Now we are seeing that the unsaved masses didn’t really care about goodness and justice and righteousness that this nation supposedly stood for!

“MARVEL NOT…IF THE WORLD HATES YOU”

John 3:13

.

Yes, O Stranger & Pilgrim, we have been caught sleeping, and now we have had the cold water of reality thrown in our face: that the world around us is just as hateful toward us, as it was back in the early centuries of Christianity!

.

Remember those dark times when Christians were thrown into the arena to be eaten by hungry lions? Or tortured in dungeons? Or burned at the stake?

.

And it may not be long until the lions may be brought back! And those dungeons! And those stakes!

.

At the very least, we are seeing that buying and selling may become a thing of the past, as far as Christians are concerned!

.

The economic walls seem to be closing in on Christians!

But the question keeps coming back… “So exactly what were you expecting from Hell, anyway!?!”

GOOD NEWS!

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

Well, the Good News is, that even though the Holy Spirit appears to be removing Himself from the general populace, genuine Believers have the promise… “I will never leave thee, nor forsake thee. So that we may boldly say, The Lord is my helper, and I will not fear what man shall do unto me.” Hebrews 13:5, 6

.

Yes, the Bible has many similar promises that we must cling to during the darkness which is now enshrouding the world.

IT’S ACTUALLY A BLESSING!

.

But actually, we should take comfort in this: that we have been living in a great deception for several centuries.

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

.

That is, we have been duped into thinking that the world was our friend, far too long! And this false shroud has lulled the Church into a false sense of security and into a death-like spiritual slumber for over the last several centuries.

.

And now we are beginning to see that it was all just a cleverly designed deception, devised by that old Master-of-Deception, the Devil!

.

And now, the words of Isaiah are beginning to be fulfilled… “The sinners in Zion are afraid; fearfulness hath surprised the hypocrites. Who among us shall dwell with the Devouring Fire? who among us shall dwell with everlasting burnings…?” Isaiah 33:14, 15

SOLDIERS OF THE CROSS, ARMOR UP!

.

Yes, it is Good News that God’s people will no longer be deceived by this False Prophet society, which has been lulling us to sleep with the soothing strains of its deceptive and devilish lullaby! Yes, it’s Good News that we are now beginning to wake up to the reality that we must flee to the mountain of God, and hide ourselves in the “munitions of Rocks” (see Isaiah 33:16).

.

And so, O mighty Soldier of the Cross, it’s high time to get your armor on! It’s high time to be hiding those precious promises in our hearts, if there is any time left! And there’s certainly no more time to dilly-dally in this world of sin!

.

.

.

.

FLEE TO THE MOUNTAINS!

.

Constellation- Woman of Revelation 12 flees to the mountains Mark 13:14

.

And just as the prophet, Habakkuk warns…“And the LORD answered me, and said, Write the vision, and make it plain upon tables, that he may run that readeth it. For the vision is yet for an appointed time, but at the end it shall speak, and not lie: though it tarry, wait for it; because it will surely come, it will not tarry.” Habakkuk 2:2, 3

.

Yes, it’s time to “RUN!”, as the prophet exhorts. We must, “flee to the mountain”, just as the Lord warned Lot’s family! And as Jeremiah warns… “Flee out of the midst of Babylon, and deliver every man his soul: be not cut off in her iniquity; for this is the time of the LORD’S vengeance…” Jeremiah 51:6

.

.

.

.

RUN CHRISTIAN, RUN!

.http://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:Genesis19-17.jpg

And just as Matthew warns… “When ye therefore shall see the abomination of desolation, spoken of by Daniel the prophet, stand in the holy place, (whoso readeth, let him understand:) Then let them which be in Judaea flee into the mountains:” Matthew 24:15, 16

.

And as we hear the Lord God say to us… “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, it is the time when Babylon the Great will receive her just recompense from Heaven. And dear Christian, if ever there were a time to put as much distance as possible between you and the fallen churches, it is now!

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”. These are located on the opposite side of the Glorious Crown of 12 Stars (AKA Corona Borealis), from the ‘Five Wise Virgins’ Stars.

Five Wise, Five Foolish 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!
