Daily Devotional, Year 3 – August 16

Cease Ye From Man! Part 14: “Whose Image Am I Beholding Today?” FURTHER CONTINUED

“And the smoke of their torment

ascendeth up for ever and ever:

and they have no rest day nor night,

who worship the beast and his image,

and whosoever receiveth the mark of his name.”

Revelation 14:11

.

.

.

.

.

.

This above verse from the Book of Revelation foretells of the day that men will suffer God’s wrath because of their sin of worshipping the Beast and his image.

.

Now there are many various theories about just who this beast is, and exactly what is this image which is worshipped by the human race.

.

GOLDEN IMAGE FOR “NATIONS & LANGUAGES”

.

One great big clue to understanding the image of the beast is found in Daniel, Chapter 2, in which King Nebuchadnezzar sets up a golden image of himself on the plain of Dura in the province of Babylon.

.

And the king commanded the “nations and the languages” to fall down and worship the golden image.

.

Well, this story is similar to Revelation 13 in which the world is compelled to worship the beast and his image, at the penalty of death for all who refuse to do so.

LUCIFER: THE TRUE KING OF BABYLON

.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:Martin,_John_-_Satan_presiding_at_the_Infernal_Council_-_1824.JPGNow, without trying to go into every detail, the main point to these prophecies is this: the golden image in Babylon represents King Nebuchadnezzar who represents Lucifer, the fallen angel, as revealed in Isaiah 14.

.

Yes, in Isaiah 14, God prophesy’s against the King of Babylon, even calling him Lucifer at one point.

THE IMAGE OF A MAN, A KING, SATAN

.

And so, the gist of all this is, the entire world is to be compelled to worship the image of the beast.

.

And just as the King of Babylon represents Satan, so too this image is the image of the beast, which the last devotional reveals is in the likeness of the Revelation 12 Dragon who represents Satan.

.

And so, both the golden image of Daniel, and the image of the beast in Revelation 13 ultimately represents worshiping the image of Satan.

.

Now listen to Revelation 13:3, 4 which confirms this concept that worshiping this composite beast is akin to worshiping Satan…“and all the world wondered after the beast. And they worshipped the dragon which gave power unto the beast…”

ANTICHRIST BEAST ALWAYS IN THE WORLD

.

Now just one more thing to consider as to what and who this beast represents… “Littlehttp://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:Papessa_tiara.jpg children, it is the last time: and as ye have heard that antichrist shall come, even now are there many antichrists; whereby we know that it is the last time…They are of the world: therefore speak they of the world, and the world heareth them. We are of God: he that knoweth God heareth us; he that is not of God heareth not us. Hereby know we the spirit of truth, and the spirit of error.” 1st John 2:18 & 4:5, 6 

.

And so, these above two passages from 1st John reveal that even in his day the world was filled with antichrists…“ye have heard that antichrist shall come, even now are there many antichrists; whereby we know that it is the last time…” Revelation  2:18.

ANTICHRIST BEAST WAS BUSY BACK IN THE EARLY CENTURIES

.

So John, when speaking of the coming Antichrist Beast of Revelation 13, revealed that his coming was already being fulfilled because the world was already filled with antichrists even back in John’s day!

.

And so, that is why John said that even in his day it was “the last time”.

.

But just one more high point.

.

Notice in John 4:5, John reveals that these antichrists are spoken of as this: “They are of the world, and speak of the world and the world hears them.” 

.

Therefore, this antichrist beast is merely the kingdom of Satan, made up of the people of this world and the kingdoms of this world, and the kings of this world. Perhaps we might say that this entire world-system and all its loyal citizenry is what comprises the http://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:NOMG01ThankGodForSatan.jpgRevelation 13 Antichrist Beast.

.

It is a composite beast, comprised of the kings and kingdoms, including the loyal citizenry of this, Lucifer’s fallen kingdom, the world!

.

And all those who love this selfish world with all its tinsel-like treasures and vain, earthly pleasures are actually loving its creator, Lucifer, now given the title, Satan and the Devil.

HEAVENLY ROLE-MODELS or HELLISH ROLE MODELS?

.

As most everyone in the Christian community understands, the Bible uses not only Jesus, but mere mortals, such as Paul, to be role-models for Christians to admire and emulate.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:Poster_-_Gone_With_the_Wind_01.jpg.

But Lucifer, now called Satan fully understand this, and has given us his own role-models, for us to conform to. And now, with the advent of television, radio, the printed page, and high-tech devices, like never before this Master-Destroyer has perfected his mind-control machinery in which to conform the world into his own selfish image!

.http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:Super_Bowl_XLIII_-_Thunderbirds_Flyover_-_Feb_1_2009.jpg

And so, the many ‘superstars’ seen and adored by the lost multitudes on a daily basis, become firmly etched upon the tables of the human hearts of all those adoring fans of these ‘ministers of (Satan’s counterfeit) righteousness’!

.

And as a result, they eventually begin to emulate them in their own personal daily lives!

THE BIBLE ONLY IS INFALLIBLE

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

Well, this has given much spiritual food to chew on, and has only touched the high points concerning the beast and his image.

.

Certainly this website makes no claim of infallibility but exalts God’s Word, the Bible as the only infallible source-book of truth!

.

But as the faithful disciple of Jesus continues to explore the Bible for greater understanding of these things, these three devotionals might point them in the right direction.

THE SIGNS OF HEAVEN

.

 However, let the Reader be reminded, that God has inscribed these truths in the very heavens, via the signs in the sun, moon and stars, now being revealed.

.

And so, in a sense, God has placed His seal of approval on this message, or so it seems.

.

And the reader is highly encouraged to study these heavenly signs as a way of confirming all these truths presented on this website!

.

And may the Lord richly bless all those Bible students who sincerely desire to find truth.

TODAY’S PRAYER…

“Dear Lord, Help me to keep the image of Jesus before my eyes today. Give me discernment between the image of Jesus and the image of Man. Cause me to strive to put away the image of Man, as far as possible, replacing it with the image of Jesus…

TODAY’S FEATURED HEAVENLY SIGN

7 STARS IMITATE THE CROSS OF ORION

 

.

 This phenomenon begins in late October, in the pre-dawn hours. It then begins a little earlier each night, and lasts for several months, until they both appear to lie down once again.

The Cross of Orion Constellation star-chart.

This Wikipedia star-chart to the left, has this Orion Constellation sketched in. You must locate Orion, when it is mid-sky, between east and west. You’ll be facing southward most likely, unless you are far south. Try to imagine it as a Cross on a steep hill. The 3-star belt of Orion becomes the crest of the hill. The 3 very faint stars that make up Orion’s head become the very top of the Cross.

.

Next, locate the 7 Stars Constellation. This 7 Stars Constellation is seen by facing northward. It stands upright a little later in the night. Eventually, Orion will lay down and no longer be seen as an uplifted Cross! Beginning in November, the 7 Stars (AKA Big Dipper) can be seen as a Cross a little bit later in evening.

.

When you are comfortable in locating Orion & The 7 Stars Constellations, then show a friend. This can be a great witnessing tool!
