Flee To The Mountains, Part 20: “Congregate Together, or Flee To The Mountains?”

“Not forsaking the assembling of ourselves together,

as the manner of some is; but exhorting [one another]:

and so much the more, as ye see the day approaching”

Hebrews 10:25

.

This above verse has been like glue, holding God’s people together for almost 2,000 years.

.

Oh yes, during the Dark Ages, God’s true worshipers had to flee from the apostate churches.

.

But there was always an attempt to congregate together, whether in a designated building, or home, or even in some mountain stronghold.

AS WE SEE, WHAT DAY APPROACHING?

.

But if one looks more closely at this verse , they will notice that it says to “not forsaking the assembling of ourselves together, and all the more, especially as ye see the Day approaching” Hebrews 10:25

And so, the question to be asked is, “As we see WHAT DAY approaching?”

A GREAT SHAKING

https://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:Book_of_Revelation_Chapter_9-1_%28Bible_Illustrations_by_Sweet_Media%29.jpg

.

Well, as the Bible student continues on in Hebrews, he will find this statement…“Yet once more I shake not the earth only, but also Heaven…that those things which cannot be shaken may remain.” Hebrews 12:25-27

.

This above passage speaks of the day when God will shake those things both in earth and also in Heaven, “that those things which cannot be shaken may remain.”

THE DAY IN WHICH TO RUNhttp://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:Genesis19-17.jpg

.

Well, compare this to a verse in Isaiah which also speaks of God shaking the earth…“In that Day a man shall…go into the clefts of the ragged rocks, for fear of the LORD, and for the glory of His majesty, when He ariseth to shake terribly the earth. Cease ye from man, whose breath is in his nostrils: for wherein is he to be accounted of? ” Isaiah 2:20-22

.

Here is seen that God’s people are to “cast away their idols of silver and gold” to go into the clefts of the ragged rocks when God arises to “shake terribly the earth!”

THE DAY WE MUST FLEE

Constellation- Woman of Revelation 12 flees to the mountains Mark 13:14

.

And so, it is evident that the Day is coming when God’s people must flee to those ragged rocks in the Day when God arises to shake terribly the earth!

.

Thus, when Hebrews exhorts us to “not forsaking the assembling of ourselves together, and all the more as we see the Day approaching”, it is revealed above in Isaiah 2:20-22 that the “Day approaching” is speaking of when God’s people are to flee to the “ragged Rocks” when God shakes the earth (and the heaven too!)

.

.

.

.

.

.

WHERE TO FLEE TO?

.

So now that this time of fleeing has been established, the next question to be asked is, “Well, just where are we to flee to?”http://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:No_Trespassing_sign_at_empty_lot_in_February.JPG

.

After all, the governments in the western nations have all but locked up the forests by “No Trespassing” laws.

.

So how in the world can we flee to the “ragged rocks”?

“HIDE THYSELF, AS…FOR A LITTLE MOMENT…” 

http://www.muskegonartmuseum.org/collections-gallery/gallery

.

Listen to this next passage from Isaiah 26:20, 21…“Come, My people, enter thou into thy chambers, and shut thy doors about thee: hide thyself as it were for a little moment, until the indignation be overpast. For, behold, the LORD cometh out of His place to punish the inhabitants of the earth…”

.

So God commands His people to enter into their chambers to hide until the “indignation be overpast”.

.

This time of hiding ourselves until God’s punishment of the earth’s inhabitants is accomplished, is likewise speaking of the Day of the Lord, in which God will arise to shake terribly the earth (and the heaven too!)

“SEEK RIGHTEOUSNESS, SEEK MEEKNESS”

.http://www.muskegonartmuseum.org/collections-gallery/gallery

But this leads to yet another question… “How do I hide myself? And where do I hide myself?”

.

Well, listen to this next passage…“Seek ye the LORD, all ye meek of the earth, which have wrought his judgment; seek righteousness, seek meekness: it may be ye shall be hid in the day of the LORD’S anger.” Zephaniah 2:3

.

Here is seen that for a true worshiper to be hidden in the Day of the Lord’s anger requires one to seek righteousness and meekness.

.

GOD’S SECRET PAVILION

.

But again, where do we hide? Where are those chamber that Isaiah speaks of?

.http://www.muskegonartmuseum.org/collections-gallery/gallery

Well, listen to this next passage from Psalm 27:5, 6…“For in the time of trouble He shall hide me in His pavilion: in the secret of His tabernacle shall He hide me; He shall set me up upon a Rock. And now shall mine head be lifted up above mine enemies round about me:”

.

So here is revealed that it is in the secret of God’s tabernacle that His people must hide in the, “Time of Trouble”. Here is the true hiding place of safety from, “mine enemies round about me”.

.

“MY HIDING PLACE”

.https://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:USMC-081218-M-4507D-001.jpg

And if there is any remaining question as to just where is that secret of God’s tabernacle, listen again to Psalms…“Thou art my hiding place; Thou shalt preserve me from trouble; Thou shalt compass me about with songs of deliverance. Selah.” Psalm 32:7

.

And so, God is our true “hiding place”

.

And so, O Christian Stranger and Pilgrim, the time has come to take refuge in the secret hiding place of the Lord. For we are now living in that very day when God is beginning to shake the earth.

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.

.

Five Wise, Five Foolish 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!
