The Whisperer, Part 2: Exposing Other’s Nakedness!

“Is not this the fast that I (the Lord) have chosen?

to loose the bands of wickedness…

WHEN THOU SEEST THE NAKED,

THAT THOU COVER HIM…?

Then shall thy light break forth as the morning,

and thine health shall spring forth speedily:

and thy righteousness shall go before thee;

the glory of the LORD shall be thy rereward.”

Isaiah 58:6-8

Do you know who the very first gossip was?

.

.

.

Well, the very first instance of gossiping occurred in the Garden of Eden, when that wily old serpent, Satan, whispered into Eve’s ear… “And the serpent said unto the woman, Ye shall not surely die: For God doth know that in the day ye eat thereof (of the forbidden fruit), then your eyes shall be opened, and ye shall be as gods, knowing good and evil.” Genesis 3:4, 5

.

Yes, the Devil was already spreading vicious lies about the Lord, right there in the Garden!

.

And of course, Eve with eager ears, listened to that vicious gossip, and acted upon it, and the rest is history!

NO NAKED PEOPLE HERE?

Our signature verse for today is from Isaiah… “Is not this the fast that I (the Lord) have chosen? to loose the bands of wickedness…WHEN THOU SEEST THE NAKED, THAT THOU COVER HIM…? Then shall thy light break forth as the morning, and thine health shall spring forth speedily: and thy righteousness shall go before thee; the glory of the LORD shall be thy rereward.” Isaiah 58:6-8

.

Now from a quick reading, it would seem that we in this opulent cornucopia culture don’t have to worry about covering the naked. Everybody pretty much has at least one change of clothing. And the only ones who are naked in this society are voluntarily that way. Oh yes, there may be a few exceptions. But lack of clothing is almost unheard of in this industrial-based society.

“COMPARING SPIRITUAL THINGS WITH SPIRITUAL”

1st Corinthians 2:13

.

But the Bible is a spiritual book. Listen… “I (the Lord) will open My mouth in a parable: I will utter dark sayings of old:” Psalm 78:2

.

The Bible presents many physical objects to teach us spiritual lessons. And this verse from Isaiah (“When you see the naked, that you cover him”) can easily be interpreted spiritually.

.

In other words, there are many who are spiritually naked.

THE GOSSIP-GRAPEVINE

.

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

For example, let’s say that Deacon Jones has the smell of whiskey on his breath, every once in a while. And it would be very tempting to pass this embarrassing tidbit of gossip along the church gossip-grapevine… 

“Did you know that Deacon Jones smelled like whiskey the other day?”

.

Now, many church gossips justify themselves by thinking that they are doing a public service by whispering about the sins of others.

.

But wouldn’t you agree that by spreading such gossip is a form of exposing the nakedness of others…

REVELATION 16:15: SPIRITUAL NAKEDNESS

companys-coming - revised

.

Listen… “Behold, I come as a thief. Blessed is he that watcheth, and keepeth his garments, lest he walk naked, and they see his shame.” Revelation 16:15

.

Now this above verse only confirms that we are on the right track concerning spiritual nakedness. The garments spoken of here are the garments of Salvation. And when the Lord comes as a thief, all those who have not been watching will be exposed for their spiritual nakedness. And most likely, all those who are caught without their garments are the very ones who previously enjoyed exposing the sins of others, in the form of vicious gossip!

ALL ARE GUILTY BEFORE GOD!

.

Now most every one of us have been guilty of this sin of criticizing and gossiping about others behind their backs! But make no mistake, O Pilgrim, all such vicious back-stabbing gossip will bring the wrath of God down upon our own heads…

.

Listen…“He that hideth hatred with lying lips, and he that uttereth a slander, is a fool.” Proverbs 10:18

.

This verse is essentially saying that those who regularly slander and gossip about others are yet unsaved! Yes, according to the Bible, being a fool is the same thing as being unsaved!

.

And those who are true children of God will tremble in fear whenever they fall into this sin! Yes, all true children of God know how painful are God’s chastisements!

THE DAY OF THE LORD

Now listen to these verses from Isaiah concerning the Day of the Lord…“The lofty looks of man shall be humbled, and the haughtiness of men shall be bowed down, and the LORD alone shall be exalted in that day. For the day of the LORD of hosts shall be upon every one that is proud and lofty, and upon every one that is lifted up; and he shall be brought low:” Isaiah 2:11, 12

.

Yes, the Day of the Lord will be upon the proud, especially proud scorners!

BACK-STABBING GOSSIP

https://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:Job_Rebuked_by_His_Friends_Butts_set.jpg

.

Criticizing others  is borne of the spirit of pride. And gossiping privately is a form of cowardice. Instead of back-stabbing another, it would be far better to go to that erring individual and gently scold him (or her) for their sin.

.

Listen… “Open rebuke is better than secret love. Faithful are the wounds of a friend; but the kisses of an enemy are deceitful.” Proverbs 27:5, 6

THE GOOD NEWS!

http://www.wikigallery.org/wiki/painting_198722/William-Brassey-Hole/The-sorrow-of-king-David

.

Well the Good News is that it is still the Day of Salvation! And you and I can beg God, right this minute, to purge us from this most pernicious and damning sin!

.

When God finally and fully removes this sin of criticizing and gossiping, the child of God will feel such a joy and freedom! And there will be a restoration of God’s Free Spirit, causing us to sing “songs of deliverance!”

THE FIVE FOOLISH VIRGINS STARS

.

Serpent Constellation

.

A new constellation has been revealed, as of about May 29th, 2014. This constellation appears as a serpent (snake). Its body is comprised of stars from the Bootes Constellation, and its jaws are made of the four stars which Babylonians saw as the head of Draco, the Dragon. It also has a small single star for an eye.

.

Now in this constellation is a group of five stars, which will be called “The Five Foolish Virgins Stars”. These are located on the opposite side of the Glorious Crown of 12 Stars (AKA Corona Borealis), from the Five Wise Virgins Stars. But one big difference between the two is, that The Five Wise are curved around the Glorious Crown, while the Five Foolish are curved away from it!

Serpent Points To Valley & Destroying Mtn.

Now another incredible aspect to all this is that this snake/serpent is winding its way around the backside of this Crown. And it is traveling in a direction away from the Crown! And one really phenomenal aspect to this, is that each jaw (composed of two stars each) is pointing in two directions. In other words, if you drew a line parallel with these two sets of stars (the head of Draco), they each go in two directions: one leading to the Valley of Decision Constellation, and the other going straight to the Broad Way to Hell Constellation (AKA Pisces).

.

Now if one studies the Valley of Decision Constellation, it is soon discovered that the same concept, of the Wise and Foolish Virgins, is also depicted in this constellation group. The Five Wise Virgins being depicted by the Andromeda Galaxy, and the Five Foolish Virgins, looking like a wheel, rolling its way down into the Dragon Constellation!
