The World’s Most Amazing Fact! 

.

.

.

.

.

So just what is the world’s most amazing fact?

.

Can you guess what that most amazing fact is?

Perhaps it’s some mathematical or physics equation. Maybe Einstein’s famous E = MC2 equation!

.

Or maybe the world’s most amazing fact is the astronomical value of the National Debt!

.

Or maybe it’s the number of causalities from all the wars combined!

.

Just what is the world’s most amazing fact?

SALVATION, WELL YES…

Well, here it is! Here is the world’s most amazing fact!

.

Have you guessed what it is? Here’s a hint. It has to do with Salvation. And of course, Jesus’ gift of Salvation is certainly the most amazing fact.

.

Yes, Jesus’ death on the Cross to atone for our sins is certainly the most amazing fact, by far!

.

But that’s not the most amazing fact in the world. No, there’s something that is equally as amazing as Salvation!

FOREVER YOUNG!

.

Well, as amazing as Salvation is, it is perhaps even more amazing that so few citizens of this planet are responding to the Gospel call.

.

Just think about it! God is offering everlasting life in a world where there is no sin and suffering and sorrow. A world in which songs of joy and innocent laughter will ring through the everlasting valleys and echo against the eternally green hills! And there we will be forever young!

.

You would think that people would come running from near and far to take hold of this most amazing gift! Just think about it! God is giving one and all, the chance to live forever in that wonderful land!

.

But hardly anyone reaches out to joyfully take hold of that free gift!

FOUNTAIN HERE, BUT NOT MANY DRINK

.

.

Look at it this way. Let’s suppose that in the middle of your town, there was a fountain with a sign on it that read… “Drink this water and you will live forever!”

.

But hardly anybody in that town stopped and took a drink! Doesn’t that sound crazy? But that’s exactly the situation we have in this world! God offers the living water of Salvation to anyone willing to drink! But hardly anyone sees the value in living forever!

EVEN CHURCH-GOERS DON’T DRINK

.

http://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:Fountain_of_Eternal_Life_-_Cleveland,_Ohio_-_DSC07944.JPGNow if that wasn’t amazing enough, just look at those who profess to have already drank from that fountain! If they had truly drank this water of everlasting life, then they would have become changed into a new person… “Therefore if any man be in Christ, he is a new creature: old things are passed away; behold, all things are become new.” 2nd Corinthians 5:17

ALL MAKE EXCUSES 

.

http://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:Fountain_of_Eternal_Life_-_Cleveland,_Ohio_-_DSC07944.JPGBut the fact is that the following passage seems to describe the greatest class of church-goers… “A certain man made a great supper, and bade many: And sent His servant at supper time to say to them that were bidden, Come; for all things are now ready…

.http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:Nobel-banquet-table.jpg

“And they all with one consent began to make excuse. The first said unto him, I have bought a piece of ground, and I must needs go and see it: I pray thee have me excused. And another said, I have bought five yoke of oxen, and I go to prove them: I pray thee have me excused. And another said, I have married a wife, and therefore I cannot come…

Then the Master of the house being angry said…For I say unto you, That none of those men which were bidden shall taste of My supper.” Luke 14:16-21, 24

BREAD OF LIFE!

.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:Nobel-banquet-table.jpgThis above parable of “The Supper Invitation”, is not written for some future time. Notice it says… “And (He) sent His servant at supper time to say to them that were bidden, ‘Come; for all things are NOW ready.'” Luke 14:17

.

The great supper which God has prepared for us is now being served! But it is a spiritual supper.

.

Remember how Jesus says, “I am the Bread of Life”? (John 6:35) 

.

.

.

.

SPIRITUAL FRUIT 

.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:Nobel-banquet-table.jpgAnd remember that we are admonished to partake of the, “Fruit of the Spirit”? Galatians 5:22, 23.

.

But so many of those who are called, rather get so absorbed in the cares and pleasures of life, that we fail to nourish ourselves up in the daily study and contemplation of God’s Word.

.

.

.

.

.

WINE OF CHRIST’S BLOOD

.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:Nobel-banquet-table.jpgAnd so many church-goers partake of the wine served at communion service, but have never been filled with the wine of Salvation.

.

They merely use church attendance as a substitute for being truly, “crucified with Christ”.http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:ConcordGrapes1.jpg

.

Oh yes, they partake of the wine served at Communion Service.

.

But they do not drink daily of the wine of Salvation!

THE MEAT OF THE WORD

.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:Nobel-banquet-table.jpgAnd the same thing goes for partaking of the “meat of the Word”.

.

There are many who have been attending church for years, but still are, “babes in Christ”. They “have need of milk, and not of strong meat.” Hebrews 5:12 

.

And so, all such go without the strong meat of the Word!

.

.

.

.

.

SPIRITUALLY STARVED CHURCH

.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:Nobel-banquet-table.jpgOver the last several hundred years, Satan has changed his strategy against the Church.

.

While in former centuries, he brought the Church into deprivation, torture and death, famine and want, he now has found a far more effective means of destroying God’s people: to flood this world with every conceivable luxury and amusement and entrepreneurial career endeavor!

CHURCH AT EASE

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:Nobel-banquet-table.jpg

.

And now that we are at the end of days, we have a special warning… “And take heed to yourselves, lest at any time your hearts be overcharged with surfeiting, and drunkenness, and cares of this life, and so that day come upon you unawares. For as a snare shall it come on all them that dwell on the face of the whole earth. Watch ye therefore…” Luke 21:34-36

.

This above warning given by Jesus should make us tremble.

.

And if ever there were a time to take heed to this exhortation, it is now!

.

(This Judgment Day Cartoon depicts so many of us, as we forget the fearful hour we are in, and sink back into forgetfulness – may we each repent of this spiritual drunkenness)

.

.

.

.

GOOD NEWS! STILL TIME!

.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:Nobel-banquet-table.jpgThe very Good News is, that the door of Salvation is still open!

.

Signs Of Heaven recommends that each and every one of us should begin to fully immerse ourselves in God’s Word throughout our day.

.

There are modern devices, that we can listen to the many audio Bibles available.

.http://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:Titi_Freak,_London_Graffiti.jpg

And even when we cannot listen to these, we can still contemplate on what we have previously been listening to.

.

And we can also begin to pray that God will mercifully allow us to eliminate all unnecessary activities from our lives, that we might spend time studying our Bible.

.

And then we might begin to silently and discreetly pray as we go about our daily duties.

GOD’S AMAZING FORGIVENESS!

.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:Nobel-banquet-table.jpg

And perhaps, the most amazing fact in the world is, that God is very forgiving.

.

And those of us who have failed so miserably in the past, can cry out for God to allow us to finally come and partake of His great supper, in which, “all things are now ready”!

TODAY’S PRAYER…http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:Nobel-banquet-table.jpg

.

“Dear Lord, Wake me up to the peril all around! Let me no longer keep eating from the world’s trough, and no longer drinking of the world’s broken cisterns! Bring me into the wedding banquet which is now ready…

TODAY’S FEATURED HEAVENLY SIGN

REVELATION 12 WOMAN & NARROW GATE STARS

.

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 to right).

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.
