.

Yet when we fell from grace, this world began to change in many ways. Nature, to a certain extent, began to take on some changes.

.

And many creatures and plants, even grew dangerous.

NATURE OUR TEACHER

.http://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:Garden_orb_weaver05.jpg

But in addition to giving nature the ability to become dangerous after the Fall of Man, God also designed nature to teach lessons about good and evil!

.

Yes, there are many creatures who exhibit appearances and behaviors, which teach us about heavenly virtues.

.

But many aspects of nature teach lessons about Satan’s government of Hell!

A SIGN IN HEAVEN: A GREAT RED DRAGON

.

http://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:Chamaeleo_namaquensis_(Namib-Naukluft,_2011).jpgNow, there are a variety of lizards throughout the world, which are no exception!

Revelation 12 Dragon w/text

.

In other words, these little dragons align themselves with the great biblical Dragon, Satan…

.

Listen… “And there appeared another wonder in Heaven; and behold a great red dragon, having seven heads and ten horns, and seven crowns upon his heads.” Revelation 12:3

.

And so, these varied species of dragons, while fascinating to study, are nevertheless given attributes which align themselves with the great Dragon, Satan, because they teach us about Satan’s attributes!

CHANGING COLORS

.

Now in today’s little devotional, only one aspect will be explored.

Many of these little forest and desert dragons have the ability to change colors, depending on their surroundings.

CHAMELEON HUMAN-RIGHTS GROUPS!

.

http://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:Chamaeleo_namaquensis_(Namib-Naukluft,_2011).jpg

Now as we look out on the current state of human affairs we see various paradigm shifts which have a curious similarity to these chameleon lizards.

.

For instance, it is remarkable that we are now witnessing a particular major ideology which has championed various human rights over the past decades, begin to embrace another particular religious/political ideology which is infamous for trampling on human rights! It is as if they are changing colors, as a chameleon changes colors!

http://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:A232,_Alice_Springs_Desert_Park,_Alice_Springs,_Australia,_thorny_devil,_2007.JPG

.

So one has to question just how genuine was this humanitarian-driven political group in the first place!

.

It is as if they are like the proverbial chameleon dragon, that they can so easily abandon their previous strong stance for human rights, merely to embrace such a brutal, cut-throat, oppressive political/religious group. It boggles the mind to see this happening!

BETRAYED!

.

http://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:Chamaeleo_namaquensis_(Namib-Naukluft,_2011).jpg

Now here is one great big point that should not be overlooked!

.

And this is the point to be made! There are many dedicated humanitarians, who have placed great trust in that certain political group which has for so long, stood for human-rights causes!

.

But now, these dedicated humanitarians have been betrayed by this chameleon-like political group!

.

Of course, many so-called humanitarians still cling to this chameleon-like political entity, making themselves appear disingenuous as well!

CHAMELEON WORKERS-RIGHTS GROUPS

.

http://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:Chamaeleo_namaquensis_(Namib-Naukluft,_2011).jpg

But this is not the only example of this amazing phenomenon!

.

No, this same chameleon-like color-change is going on in many areas of society!

.

For another example, there is a large group which has for a long time, championed the causes of workers-rights, who all of a sudden, pushed for a trade agreement for foreign-made goods to be sold locally!

.

This was a complete sell-out to their local workers!

.

They pretended to care about their workers, but completely abandoned them to support this trade agreement!

“And I beheld another beast coming up out of the earth; and he had two horns like a lamb, and he spake as a dragon.”

Revelation 13:11  

.

https://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:Antifa_@_Trump_in_Phoenix_8-22-17.jpgThis same political group once stood for freedom of speech. But now they are trying their best to squash the speech of all those who hold opposing political/religious views.

https://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:Anti-Christian_sign_in_Federal_Plaza_Chicago.jpg.

And this same group once stood for non-violence, and yet they are becoming more and more physically violent towards those whom they oppose politically/religiously.

.

And so, it has become manifest to all, that their supposed mercy/compassion/tolerance/pacifism was never truly genuine, but merely was a counterfeit!

CHAMELEON CHURCHES

.

http://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:Chamaeleo_namaquensis_(Namib-Naukluft,_2011).jpg

And even in the church-world, one can witness this same chameleon-like hypocrisy!

.

Churches which long defended Bible truth have recently abandoned their strong biblical stance, merely to embrace currently popular politically-correct ideologies!

THE CHAMELEON-IN-CHIEF!

.

http://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:Chamaeleo_namaquensis_(Namib-Naukluft,_2011).jpg

But if we really think this through, it’s not so surprising when one considers that the people of this world are filled with the spirit of Antichrist…

.

Listen… “Ye are of God, little children, and have overcome them (Antichrists): because greater is He that is in you, than he that is in the world. They are of the world: therefore speak they of the world, and the world heareth them.” 1st John 4:3, 4

.

And so we see here that the people of the world are merely of an Antichrist spirit.

.

So then, it is no wonder that they can be so easily driven any which way that their satanic master drives them!

SATAN, THE DEADLY DRAGON!

.

Now of course, Satan is a deadly dragon. And just as this little dragon below, has a ferocious appetite for little bugs, so too, Satan has a ferocious appetite for http://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:Chamaeleo_namaquensis_(Namib-Naukluft,_2011).jpgChristians!

.

Listen…  “Be sober, be vigilant; because your adversary the devil, as a roaring lion, walketh about, seeking whom he may devour:” 1st Peter 5:8

.

And this little Chameleon is obviously very good with his tongue!

.

And Satan is likewise good with his tongue!

“CEASE YE FROM MAN”

Isaiah 2:22

http://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:Chamaeleo_namaquensis_(Namib-Naukluft,_2011).jpg

So dear Christian Pilgrim, it is becoming evident that we can no longer place our trust in the world!

.

Well, we never should have trusted the world in the first place! And now we are learning that we cannot even place our trust in churches!

.

Listen… “Some trust in chariots, and some in horses: but we will remember the name of the LORD our God. They are brought down and fallen: but we are risen, and stand upright.” Psalm 20:7, 8

.

And so, as this above passage reveals, we are not to place any trust in humans, or institutions!

.

And as we look at the current condition of Christianity, our distrust should include Bible teachers, and churches! God and His Word are alone, infallible and totally trustworthy!

CHRIST, OUR ONLY HOPE!

https://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:Brooklyn_Museum_-_What_Our_Lord_Saw_from_the_Cross_(Ce_que_voyait_Notre-Seigneur_sur_la_Croix)_-_James_Tissot.jpg

.

Yes, this ol’ world is now really beginning to show its true colors, as we see these humanitarian groups (and churches) betray their trusting constituents, by embracing things they once professed to oppose!

.

But these surprising ideological turnabouts only help us to understand that Christ is the One who is totally trustworthy and faithful! 

.

“Thus saith the LORD; Cursed be the man that trusts in man, and makes flesh his arm, and whose heart departs from the LORD…Blessed is the man that trusts in the LORD, and whose hope the LORD is.” Jeremiah 17:5, 7

REVELATION 12 DRAGON LOCATION…

Wikipedia star-charts winter constellation in West

.

The Revelation 12 Dragon Constellation can be located by finding Orion in winter months. The Dragon is to Orion’s left, and the Dragon’s mouth is right next to Orion’s shield. This Dragon’s mouth is the V-like constellation The Hyades Cluster, which is also known as the head of Taurus the Bull. The Dragon’s tail-tip is Pleiades and the lower shaft of his tail is partly of Aries  and Pisces. Then with aid of a dark and starry night, you may begin to connect the mouth and the tail with a very long body in an oval shape. The front and back legs are made of a few stars: the front legs partially of stars from Taurus . The back legs and rear fin are made of 6 stars from the Cetus Constellation.

.

BODY HARD TO SEE

.

The long oval-shaped body has relatively few stars, but can been seen, howbeit with a dark, starry night. The four stars of the front fins are made partially of Taurus .

.

FIRST APPEARS IN MID-SUMMER

Dragon of Revelation 12 Constellation

.

This Dragon constellation appears in the eastern horizon about mid-summer in the pre-dawn hours, spewing his flood-waters northward toward the Revelation 12 Woman in Travail (not pictured in this chart).

.

The Wave of Water is primarily composed of the Constellation Auriga. There are two dimmer stars (#’s 1 & 2) which are closest to the Dragon’s mouth. These two dimmer stars are also part of this Wave of Water, but are not part of the Auriga Constellation.

.

THE ZODIAC NAMES

It is not the purpose, nor the desire of www.theheavensdeclare.net to give any validity or recognition to the Zodiac or any pagan deities. But unfortunately, the common names of many constellations (such as Scorpio or Sagittarius, etc.), must be given, solely for the purpose of locating them on star-charts.
