Daily Devotional – MARCH 8

.

.

.

The Deceitfulness of Riches, Part 2: Flee!

.

.

.

.

.

“For the love of money is the root of all evil:

which while some coveted after,

they have erred from the faith,

and pierced themselves through with many sorrows. 

But thou, O man of God, flee these things;

and follow after righteousness, godliness,

faith, love, patience, meekness.”

1st Timothy 6:10, 11

.

.

.

.

It was presented in yesterday’s devotional, that we live in a land of incredible riches!

.

Like never before in history, we in this high-tech industrial culture have more than the heart could wish!

.

Yes, even the poorest of this society are inundated with earthly wealth in the form of modern-day conveniences and over-abundance; things which cause us and our children to drown in perdition and destruction!

.

And because we have gone after so much of this excess and opulence, not only us, but our children have little desire to seek after the oneness with Jesus, which God requires from each and every true worshipper!

THIS ANTICHRIST WORLD-SYSTEM

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

.

“…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

.

And yesterday, it was also presented that Satan has built up a world-system which is increasingly causing the entire earth-population to become conformed to his image!

.

From television, to books, magazines and newspapers, etc., to atheistic schooling, to our high-tech audio/visual devices, Satan has been indoctrinating Christians and their children into his Antichrist world-system!

MANY TIMES, GOD SAYS, “FLEE”!

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

 

And so, in yesterday’s devotional, it was declared that Habakkuk’s prophecy has now reached its fulfillment, in which God’s people are warned to “run”!

.

Now, the Book of Habakkuk is not the only place in Scripture that we are commanded to run! No, many times God warns us to flee from the wrath to come!

.

Listen… “And this gospel of the kingdom shall be preached in all the world for a witness unto all nations; and then shall the end come. 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 24:14-16

.

ALLEGORICAL LANGUAGE

.

When ye therefore shall see the abomination of desolation…Then let them which be inhttp://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:Holy_bible.jpg Judaea flee into the mountains:” Matthew 24:14-16 (condensed)

.

Now, this above passage found in Matthew 24, Mark 13, and Luke 21 has been written in veiled, allegorical language, so that only God’s faithful people will understand what it truly is saying!

.

The apostate portion of the Church has been locked out of understanding these allegorical things, by their own false and unbiblical hermeneutics!

THE HARLOT CHURCH

.

And speaking of allegories, this next passage only further amplifies our understahttp://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:Burgkmair_whore_babylon_color.jpgnding…

.

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

.

This above verse calls God’s people out of Babylon.

.

But since literal Babylon was destroyed thousands of years prior, this verse must be understood allegorically! And in Chapter 17 of Revelation, God speaks of MYSTERY BABYLON, MOTHER OF HARLOTS!

.

And many times God compares the apostate portion of the Church to a harlot and to an adulterous woman!

.

And as you can see by this 500 year old engraving, the people of long ago fully understood this concept!

SODOM-LIKE OPULENCE IN CHURCHES

.

“Behold, this was the iniquity of thy sister Sodom, pride, fulness of bread, and abundance of idleness was in her and in her daughters, neither did she strengthen the hand of the poor and needy.” Ezekiel 16:49

.

.

And so, when God calls His people out of Babylon, He is telling us to vacate the fallen world-loving, prosperity-driven churches!

.                                                                                                                                                        

Here is the apostate condition of the churches, both liberal and conservative!

.

The churches are filled with those who advocate the same opulence which led Sodom into her ultimate destruction!

.

Pride, fulness of bread were the chief sins of Sodom; and they are also the chief sins of us today!

TOTAL APOSTASY FORETOLD

.

Just listen to the apostate condition of today’s church-world… “For the time will come when they will not endure sound doctrine; but after their own lusts shall they heap to themselves teachers, having itching ears; And they shall turn away their ears from the truth, and shall be turned unto fables.” 2nd Timothy 4:3, 4

.

Today’s churches are no longer able to preach the pure Word of God!

.

Because if they did, they would offend, thus losing most of their parishioners!

.

And so, the pure words of the Bible has now become “watered down” with many worldly compromises: politics, prosperity-driven messages, worldly jokes and jests, career-oriented encouragements, drama, sensual music & dancing, sensual apparel, idolizing of famous musicians and evangelists, ethnicity, incorrect doctrines, divorce & re-marriage, ungodly associations with unbelievers, worldly-minded clubs, worldly-minded sports, many worldly-minded schools, spiritualism in the form of tongues (babbling) and other counterfeit signs & wonders, and a host of other similar abominations!

TIME TO FLEE!

.

And so, by attending such congregations, God’s people and their children are only getting further indoctrination into the world-system of our adversary, the Devil!

.

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

.

Yes, the time of “itching ears gospels” has fully come!

.

But the Bible tells us… “men of corrupt minds…supposing that gain is godliness: from such withdraw thyself….For the love of money is the root of all evil: which while some coveted after, they have erred from the faith, and pierced themselves through with many sorrows. But thou, O man of God, flee these things; and follow after righteousness, godliness, faith, love, patience, meekness.” 1st Timothy 6:10, 11

.

It tells us in this above to “withdraw thyself from such (men)” 1st Timothy 6:5! But it also tells us to “flee these things” (c.6, v. 11).

.

And here is a giant clue as to just how we are to come out of spiritual Babylon!

.

.

.

.

.

And so, in tomorrow’s daily devotional (click here to read), will be discussed just how do we flee and where we are to flee to!

.

TODAY’S PRAYER…

.

“Dear Lord, These are new concepts for me! Please give me understanding into these things! Help me to be a “noble Berean” and give me an open mind as I explore these seemingly new ideas…

TODAY’S FEATURED HEAVENLY SIGN

.

REVELATION 12 TAKES PLACE IN HEAVEN

.

“And there appeared a great wonder (sign) in heaven; a woman…And she being with child cried, travailing in birth, and pained to be delivered. And there appeared another wonder (sign) in heaven; and behold a great red dragon…And his tail drew the third part of the stars of heaven, and did cast them to the earth…And the woman fled into the wilderness…And there was war in heaven: Michael and his angels fought against the dragon…And to the woman were given two wings of a great eagle, that she might fly into the wilderness…And the serpent cast out of his mouth water as a flood after the woman, that he might cause her to be carried away of the flood…” Revelation 12: 1-4, 6, 7, 14, 15 (condensed)

.

This above passage is a very condensed version of Revelation, Ch. 12. (To read entire Chapter 12, click here)

WOMAN & DRAGON IN HEAVENS

.

.

From time to time, the Book of Revelation mentions stars. But when we get to Revelation Chapter 12, it speaks of two “great signs in heaven”. First, it speaks of the sign in heaven of a woman with child. Then it speaks of the sign in heaven of a great red dragon, with a tail that sweeps one-third of the stars and casts these stars down to the earth. So we get the sense that this phenomenon that the Apostle John was seeing, was closely intertwined with the starry host of the heavens. And these two signs in heaven, a woman, and a dragon, are a big part of this website, Signs Of Heaven.

.

And so this phenomenon that the Apostle John was seeing, was closely intertwined with the starry host of the heavens.

.

What really gives validity to this idea, is that God created the Universe in such a way, that if one looks at the major constellations, then this Revelation 12 scenario can be seen. So please read on. And if you really want to see this heavenly battle, you just might. It will take some real effort on your part. But through prayer, faith, and study of the site, God may just graciously open your eyes to see this amazing story written on the heavenly scroll above. But don’t wait! This heavenly scroll will soon be rolled up, just as it is written… “And the heaven departed as a scroll when it is rolled together;” Revelation 6:14

.
