“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? He that walketh righteously, and speaketh uprightly; he that despiseth the gain of oppressions, that shaketh his hands from holding of bribes, that stoppeth his ears from hearing of blood, and shutteth his eyes from seeing evil; He shall dwell on high: his place of defence shall be the munitions of rocks: bread shall be given him; his waters shall be sure. Thine eyes shall see the King in His beauty: they shall behold the land that is very far off.” Isaiah 33:14-17

This above passage foretells of a day, when the lukewarm church will be rudely awakened, only to realize that the Day of the Lord has arrived…

.

Thus are the frightful words spoken by Isaiah…“The sinners in Zion are afraid; fearfulness hath surprised the hypocrites!”

.

.

HYPOCRITES WE!

Now just who are the hypocrites, spoken of here? Well, here is just one verse in which Jesus said to His very own professed people…“Ye hypocrites, well did Esaias prophesy of you, saying, This people draweth nigh unto Me with their mouth, and honoureth Me with their lips; but their heart is far from Me.” Matthew 15:7, 8

.

Yes, this above passage speaks of those in the church-world who claim to be Rapture-Ready Christians, and yet our lives DO NOT show that we, “follow the Lamb, whithersoever He goeth” Revelation 14:4

.

.

.

.

.

FOLLOWING THE LAMB

.

Now this above verse from Revelation 14:4 (“these…follow the Lamb, whithersoever He goeth”) speaks of God’s faithful followers, who follow, Jesus the Lamb, wherever He leads.

STANDING ON MOUNT SION (ZION)

.http://christimages.org/biblebooks/Book_of_Revelation.htm

And speaking of Revelation 14, that very same chapter speaks of a group who stands with the Lamb on top of Mount Zion…

.

Listen to Revelation 14:1…“And I looked, and, lo, a Lamb stood on the mount Sion, and with Him an hundred forty and four thousand, having His Father’s name written in their foreheads.”

ISAIAH 33 & REVELATION 14…

.

BOTH MOUNTAINTOP EXPERIENCES

.

.

Now it’s curious that Isaiah 33 and Revelation 14 both speak of God’s people dwelling on a mountain…

.

Listen again to Isaiah 33:16…“He shall dwell on high: his place of defence shall be the munitions of rocks: bread shall be given him; his waters shall be sure.”

.

So this above verse doesn’t explicitly mention Mount Zion. But since this is speaking of the Day of the Lord, then it might very well also be speaking of the top of Zion.

LITERAL OR SPIRITUAL ZION?

.

Heavenly Mount Zion

.

But is it speaking of literal Mount Zion? Listen…“But ye are come unto mount Sion, and unto the city of the living God, the heavenly Jerusalem, and to an innumerable company of angels, To the general assembly and church of the firstborn, which are written in Heaven” Hebrews 12:22, 23

.

So here we see that Mount Zion is the, “heavenly Jerusalem”, and is a spiritual concept. And this is why the ones spoken of in Isaiah can, “…see the King in His beauty: they shall behold the land that is very far off.” Isaiah 33:14-17.

.

Yes, if they are indeed dwelling on high, in spiritual Zion, then they have no problem seeing the King in all His beauty, and beholding the Land that is very far off! And those who become citizens of heavenly Jerusalem no doubt have spiritual eyes to see that Land that is very far off!

.

Heavenly Mount Zion (Cassiopeia)

.

.

.

.

.

And so, could Isaiah 33 and Revelation 14 be speaking of the very same thing?

.

TODAY’S FEATURED HEAVENLY SIGN

.

.

.

Valley of Decision & O Destroying Mtn. Constellations

.

“Great is the LORD, and greatly to be praised in the city of our God, in the mountain of His holiness.

.

Beautiful for situation, the joy of the whole earth, is mount Zion, on the sides of the north, the city of the great King.”

.

Psalm 48:1, 2

.

.

.

.

.

.

This above passage sings of Mount Zion, in the sides of the North!

.

But if one looks to the Northeast in late Summer and into Fall, there is a constellation which God created to be a heavenly picture of the Heavenly Mount Zion. And it is commonly known as Cassiopeia. But God has created it to symbolize the true Zion, which is in Heaven.

.

Listen…  “But ye are come unto mount Sion, and unto the city of the living God, the heavenly Jerusalem, and to an innumerable company of angels,” Hebrews 12:22

.

Yes, Jerusalem and Mount Zion here on earth are merely earthly types, to represent the true Heavenly Jerusalem and Mount Zion.

.

.

.

.

.

LOCATING HEAVENLY MOUNT ZION 

.

Valley of Decision w/names

.

But if the Reader will go out in August and well into November, this wonderful constellation can be seen in the Northeast night-sky. But don’t wait too long! Because once it enters the western sky, it flips upside down and can no longer be seen as a mountain.

.

Now, this constellation is the very same constellation as the Mount of Blessing Constellation in the Valley of Decision Constellation Group. And it represents the favored mountain to which the people of God are to climb.
