“And then shall that Wicked be revealed, whom the Lord shall consume with the spirit of his mouth, and shall destroy with the brightness of his coming: Even him, whose coming is after the working of Satan with all power and signs and lying wonders,” 2nd Thessalonians 2:8, 9 (condensed)

CUTTLEFISH: THE GREAT IMPOSTOR!

.Cuttlefish.ogv - Wikipedia - Share-alike License

One of the most amazing creatures ever created is the Cuttlefish! Actually, it is not a fish, but a type of mollusk, like a squid, or octopus.

.

The reason why this creature is so incredible, is that it can just glance at its environment and instantly change its body to imitate that environment! As a matter of fact, whatever the Cuttlefish passes over, it instantly begins to change into the same color and shape, of that undersea object!

.

And so, its enemies cannot detect the Cuttlefish! Or when it lays-in-wait for its victims, perhaps next to a sea-weed, its color, and spots, and shape automatically change to imitate that sea-weed! It can even instantly grow leaf-like appendages to imitate certain sea-weeds! This little creature is nothing short of amazing!

CUTTLEFISH: SYMBOL OF SATAN

.

Well, God has created this little predator to give us further insight into the inner working of the kingdom of Satan.

(As this little 26 second video below shows, the Cuttlefish has the ability to paralyze his potential victims, by using his hypnotizing strobe-light effect! Amazing!)

.

Certainly Satan and his unseen minions love to make themselves invisible! That way, they can work their misery and woe upon this unsuspecting world, without its inhabitants becoming alarmed causing us to rebel against Satan’s kingdom, as we flee to God!

NOT A PERFECT COUNTERFEIT

.https://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:Cuttlefish_-_Sepia_prashadi.jpg

Even though the cuttlefish can almost miraculously morph itself to blend into its surroundings, it cannot exactly duplicate its surroundings. If one examines its disguise closely, there are tell-tale signs that it is an impostor!

.

And so it is with Satan, the great impostor! Yes, he can do a great job of counterfeiting the Holy Spirit. But upon close examination, there are tell-tale signs that something just is not right in the fallen church-world.

THE CONSERVATIVE CUTTLEFISH DECEPTION

.http://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:GiantCuttlefish6.jpg

The first three parts in this little series have spotlighted some of the tell-tale signs of the apostasy within the very most conservative of churches.

.

And even though it is much more difficult to discern these signs in the more conservative churches, they are nevertheless there.

THE CURSE OF REVELATION 22:18, 19

.

Today, another sign will be spotlighted, which gives further evidence to the satanic delusion which has swept over the church-world like a giant tsunami.

.

This sign is warned against in Revelation 22:18…“For I testify unto every man that heareth the words of the prophecy of this book, If any man shall add unto these things, God shall add unto him the plagues that are written in this book: And if any man shall take away from the words of the book of this prophecy, God shall take away his part out of the book of life, and out of the holy city, and from the things which are written in this book.”

.

Here is pronounced a curse upon anyone who adds or takes away from, “the Words of this prophecy”.

.

.

.

.

.

.

THE BIBLE ONLY? NOT REALLY!

.

Now of course, every conservative church swears allegiance to the Bible.

.

Yes, every conservative church claims to believe in, “the Bible and the Bible only!”

.

But the fact is, these conservative churches have added and have taken away from God’s Word.

.

.

.

.

And, so, they would be the first to say, “How have we added to and taken away from God’s Word?”

UNBIBLICAL ‘PRE-TRIB RAPTURE’

.http://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:Teachings_of_Jesus_38_of_40._the_rapture._one_in_the_field._Jan_Luyken_etching._Bowyer_Bible.gif

For example, perhaps the most dangerous false doctrine being taught in the fallen churches today is the so-called, “Pre-Tribulation Rapture”!

.

This is the idea that the Church-Faithful will be Raptured out of the world, prior to the final judgment and tribulation coming on the whole world.

.

Of course, there is nothing in the Bible that states this will occur. As a matter of fact, the Bible clearly states that the resurrection will occur on the “Last Day”…

RAISED ON THE LAST DAY!

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

Listen as Jesus reveals when the dead in Christ will be raised…“And this is the Father’s will which hath sent Me, that of all which he hath given Me I should lose nothing, but should raise it up again AT THE LAST DAY. And this is the will of him that sent Me, that every one which seeth the Son, and believeth on Him, may have everlasting life: and I will raise him up AT THE LAST DAY.” John 6:39, 40

.

Four times in John 6, this statement is repeated. And so, the resurrection and the Rapture cannot occur 7 years prior to the Last Day.

SATAN WILL “DECEIVE IF POSSIBLE EVEN THE ELECT!”

Matthew 24:24

.

But Satan does not want God’s people to ready themselves for the final tribulation, so he has convinced modern-day theologians that there will be this phantom event which theologians have coined the name, “The Rapture”, saying that there will be two separate returns of Jesus.

.

.

.

.

.

1ST THESSALONIANS REVEALS THE DECEPTION

.

Now, one tell-tale sign that exposes this deception is found in the very passage that they claim establishes this so-called Rapture…

.

Listen to what the proper name of Jesus’ Coming is…“For this we say unto you by the Word of the Lord, that we which are alive and remain unto THE COMING OF THE LORD shall not prevent them which are asleep. For the Lord Himself shall descend from heaven with a shout, with the voice of the archangel, and with the trump of God: and the dead in Christ shall rise first: Then we which are alive and remain shall be CAUGHT UP together with them in the clouds, to meet the Lord in the air: and so shall we ever be with the Lord.” 1st Thessalonians 4:15-17

.

Now this passage calls this event, “The Coming of the Lord”. But theologians reject this God-given name, and have concocted their own name, “The Rapture”, by the verb “caught up” in verse 17 of this very same passage, and have changed it into a proper noun. But since the words, “caught up” doesn’t make such a nice name, one clever theologian (Satan) used a Latin word, “Ripere”, and morphed that word further, to “Rapture”.

.

.

.

.

.

.

REJECTING GOD’S NAME FOR MAN’S NAME

.

And so, in essence, the Christian community has rejected God’s given name, “The Coming of the Lord”, and replaced it with “The Rapture”, thereby adding to, and taking away from God’s infallible World.

.

This is just one example of how the modern-day churches have brought themselves under the curse of Revelation 22:18, 19.

.

.

.

.

.

REPEAT A LIE OFTEN ENOUGH & IT WILL BE ACCEPTED AS TRUTH

.Cyrus Scofield - 1920 - Wikipedia - US Public Domain

Now Satan repeats this false doctrine day and night over the airwaves, via television, radio, and Internet, calling down their own curses on anyone who challenges this false teaching first popularized by Cyrus I. Scofield in the early 1900’s.

.

But the fact is, the entire Christian community is totally unprepared for the coming time of trouble, thinking that they will be “Raptured” out of the world, prior to this final tribulation!

.

So just think about it! Satan has successfully convinced the vast majority of Christians that they need not be prepared for the final conflict, since they will supposedly be Raptured out of the earth just prior to the soon-coming time of trouble!

.

.

COME OUT & GET ARMORED UP!

.

Now we would have to say that this current unprepared condition of God’s people to be a tragically hopeless situation! But praise God that He is so merciful, and has kept open the door of mercy, so that His people might come out of all the Babylonish confusion, which is the current state of the church-world!

.

So if the Reader is one of those who has been deceived by this deception, then he (or she) should waste no time in putting on the full armor of God, to stand against the wiles of the Devil, as he comes against each and every Soldier of the Cross.

TODAY’S FEATURED HEAVENLY SIGN

ORION THE SOLDIER

.http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:Orionurania.jpg

The pagan cultures saw this incredible constellation as a hunter, with a club.

.

Well, they weren’t too far off. Actually, God created it to appear like a soldier. This is because all nature presents aspects of the Gospel.

.

Listen… “The heavens declare the glory of God; and the firmament shows his handiwork.” Psalm 19:1.

.

And so now we are amazed to discover that beyond the awesome grandeur of the starry night-heavens, God has actually written the Love of God upon the heavenly scroll!

7 MAJOR STARS OF ORION…

http://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:25_Orionis_location.png

.

Orion Constellation can best be seen all winter (but even in August in the pre-dawn hours of morning in eastern skies) traveling east to west through the night, in mid-sky. To find the seven major stars of Orion (one star on each shoulder and one star on each foot, plus the three stars which make his belt), you can locate on just about any clear night regardless of the blackness of the night. To find Orion’s other stars, you need more star-visibility…a darker, moonless night, and possibly away from city lights.
