The Sign Of The Son Of Man In Heaven, Part 1: “Why Do We Hate Jesus?”

.

.

.

.

.

.

“The world cannot hate you;

but Me it hateth,

because I testify of it,

that the works thereof are evil.”

John 7:7

.                      

.

.

.

Encircling this entire globe is a great sign in Heaven! Perhaps, the greatest of all signs! (This picture is the straightened-out version, while this massive constellation actually curves completely around the globe!)

.

One reason why it is so great is because it is so vast, encompassing both the summer and winter skies! And it is comprised of most all the signs revealed on this website.

.

It is called, “The Sign of the Son of Man in Heaven” Constellation, even as it is revealed in Matthew 24:30…“And then shall appear the sign of the Son of man in heaven: and then shall all the tribes of the earth mourn, and they shall see the Son of man coming in the clouds of heaven with power and great glory.”

.

Yes, here is the most remarkable of all signs in heaven!

.

.

GRAND MASTER LEVEL

.

But to really see this sign requires the star-gazer to achieve a, “grand-master status”, so to speak, in the Signs Of Heaven. (Well, perhaps that earthly title is not such an appropriate term.)

.

Nevertheless, to see this great constellation first requires one to become fully familiar with all the other signs revealed on these two websites (www.devouringfire.com and www.theheavensdeclare.net)

.

But once the reader does achieve (or rather, “receive”) a thorough familiarity with all these other signs, then that Reader can go out and see the granddaddy of all signs, “The Sign of the Son of Man in Heaven Constellation”! (There is, however one other great sign which has not yet been revealed, because of its complexity)

“THEY HAVE REWARDED ME…HATRED FOR MY LOVE”

Psalm 109:5 

.

But anyway, just what does this heavenly phenomenon have to do with today’s devotional?

Well, simply put, today’s article asks the question, “Why did the world (us) put Jesus on the Cross?”

.

Yes, we’re all responsible for putting Jesus on the Cross!

.

But why? Why did we do it?

.

Well, the ugly truth is, we did it out of pure hatred!

“THE WORKS THEREOF ARE EVIL”

.

But just why did we hate Jesus so much?

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:Martin,_John_-_Satan_presiding_at_the_Infernal_Council_-_1824.JPG

.

Listen to the words which Jesus spoke to His then unsaved brothers…“The world cannot hate you; but Me it hateth, because I testify of it, that the works thereof are evil.” John 7:7

.

Here we have it! We hated Jesus because He criticized our beloved world! After all, this world is not Jesus’ world. No, it was given to Lucifer, who now carries the title, “The Devil”, and, “Satan”. Yes, all that is in this world, the lust of the flesh, the lust of the eyes and the pride of life is not of the Father, but is of the world and is of the Devil! (see 1st John 2:15-17)

A WORLD IN HOPELESS UNBELIEF

.

Now of course, we need to “cut a little slack”, as they say, for the people of this http://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:People_on_Times_Square.jpgunbelieving world. After all, the people of this world are enshrouded in spiritual darkness and unbelief! They do not believe that there actually exists an alternative to their world. All their hope is in this world, even as miserable and hopeless as it is! They have no hope for Heaven!

.

And let’s face it! Many or perhaps most young people feel as if they “have this world by the tail”! Death seems so far off to them. And so, they love this selfish world and say within themselves, “Why should I give up all the many pleasures and ambitious pursuits that this world has to offer, for some far off, ‘pie in the sky’ fable? I’ll just worry about all that dying stuff in 50 or 60 years!”

.

Well, that’s pretty much how the world views all this, “Jesus stuff”!

.

And so, when Jesus showed up and condemned this world, the world, in its abject hopeless unbelief, didn’t want to hear all that criticism and negativity!

.

And eventually, they put Jesus on the cruel Cross of Calvary in hopes of forever silencing Him.

“A FRIEND OF THE WORLD IS THE ENEMY OF GOD”

James 4:4

.

But what about Christians? We now love Jesus, don’t we? Oh yes, when we were lost out there, back in the world, we hated Him.

.

But now we love Him!

.

Oh, do we really love Him?

.

Listen to God’s assessment of His very own professed people…“for with their mouth they show much love, but their heart goeth after their covetousness.” Ezekiel 33:31

.

Here is revealed what God sees when examining our hearts: we profess to love Jesus, but in reality, we love the Devil.

.

.

.

.

.

TO LOVE THIS WORLD IS TO LOVE THE GOD OF THIS WORLD

.

“Now how could I ever be accused of loving the Devil? That’s a ridiculous idea! That’s a totally absurd notion! I love my Jesus!”

.

You see, what we really need to understand is that Satan is called, “the god of this world” (2nd Corinthians 4:4). And as such, he has filled this world with tokens of his selfish character.

.

In other words, this world is a reflection of Satan’s evil. Yes, all that is in the world, our little daily morsels, our selfish entertainments, our proud, ambitious attainments, and our fleshly desires are not from God, but are of this, the Devil’s world!

.

And the very fact that we still pursue these selfish attributes, reveals just who our first love truly is!

.

.

.

.

.

“GOOD NEWS FROM A FAR COUNTRY”

.

Well, in spite of all this negativity, there is a bright rainbow of promise!

https://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:Rainbow_over_Sandy%27s_Hill_-_geograph.org.uk_-_376828.jpg

.

And that bright promise is found in God’s willingness to transform us into His glorious image!

.

In other words, as Malachi 3:3 reveals…“And He (God) shall sit as a refiner and purifier of silver: and He shall purify the sons of Levi (Christians), and purge them as gold and silver, that they may offer unto the LORD an offering in righteousness.”

.

Here we have the essence of God’s love for us: the reconciliation of His people back into His image, the image we discarded long ago in the garden.

.

And the essence of our love for Jesus, is to patiently allow Him to complete this purification process in us even though it may often be quite painful!

.

“PURIFIETH HIMSELF, EVEN AS HE (JESUS) IS PURE”

.

Yes, if we are willing to allow Jesus to begin to purify our hearts, He will, day-by-day, purge out all the world-loving dross that dwells within our deceitful hearts, and magnify a brand new heart within us, even the very heart of Jesus!

.

And once this is accomplished, all of our love for this world and for the god of this selfish and evil world will be totally and forever eradicated from our heart! Then our hatred for Jesus will be transformed into pure love! Love for Jesus, and love for His people. And even a great love for all those lost souls who are in desperate need of Christ’s Salvation!

TODAY’S FEATURED SIGN

.

.

.

“Immediately after the tribulation of those days shall the sun be darkened, and the moon shall not give her light, and the stars shall fall from heaven, and the powers of the heavens shall be shaken: And then shall appear the sign of the Son of man in heaven: and then shall all the tribes of the earth mourn, and they shall see the Son of man coming in the clouds of heaven with power and great glory.”  Matthew 24:29, 3o

STRETCHED FROM SKY TO SKY

.

In 2012, this constellation was revealed. It is comprised of all the other constellations on this website, as they appear in the night-sky. The only way to really see this constellation, is to become very totally familiar with this website. This is because this incredible constellation spans both the summer and winter skies. This constellation is actually in a semi-circle, as it appears in the night-sky. These pictures, however, show it as it would appear straightened out.

.Son Of Man Constellation

There is an old song which goes… “The love of God is greater far than tongue or pen can ever tell; It goes beyond the highest star, and reaches to the lowest Hell

.

But the last verse of this song says… “Could we with ink the ocean fill, And were the skies of parchment made, were every stalk on earth a quill, And every man a scribe by trade; To write the love of God above, would drain the ocean dry; Nor could the scroll contain the whole, though stretched from sky to sky.” Now what makes all this so extremely interesting, is that this verse was found scribbled on the wall of a deceased “insane” person’s cell in a psychiatric sanitarium, upon removing his corpse.

.

And little did this “insane” man realize, that God had actually written His love and inscribed that love on the scroll (of the sky). And God had actually stretched that picture of love from sky to sky, just as the song-verse said.

.

And now God has revealed this heavenly portrait of the Son of Man, writhing in pain for a planet who cares very little for Him. (These constellations span both summer and winter sky, and this constellation in this picture to the right actually appears much more curved in the sky.)

.

And just like the Bible God has made these signs in such a way, that they are true enough for the Believers to believe; but doubtful enough for the scorners to scorn.   

.

“With the merciful Thou wilt show Thyself merciful; with an upright man Thou wilt show Thyself upright; With the pure Thou wilt show Thyself pure; and with the froward Thou wilt show Thyself froward. For Thou wilt save the afflicted people; but wilt bring down high looks. Psalm 18:25-27
