God is a respecter of people’s right to choose or not to choose. He does not force people to accept the truth if they do not wish to see the truth.

.

The Bible says concerning love….“Love does not insist on its own way” 1st Corinthians 13:5 (NIV)

.

Oh yes, God does choose a people to serve Him. But even there, He gives them a willing Spirit, and a desire for truth.

WINE

.

But this above verse from 1st Corinthians 13 is not the only place in which God presents this concept.The Pleiades: Mystery Babylon: Mother of Harlots

.

Listen to Proverbs 31:6, 7…“Give strong drink unto him that is ready to perish, and wine unto those that be of heavy hearts. Let him drink, and forget his poverty, and remember his misery no more.”

.

In this above passage it speaks of wine and strong drink.

.

But wine can also be speaking of false doctrines.

.

And so this passage can be referring to those in the apostate churches who are under the strong delusion of the wine of Babylon, i.e., false doctrines. (see Isaiah 29:9)

STRONG DELUSIONhttp://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:PaulT.jpg

.

And it must be remembered that 2nd Thessalonians 2:11, 12 speaks of God giving “strong delusion” to those who have not received the love of the truth.

.

And so, the Bible repeats this concept over and over again. God does not force His truth upon people.

“I WILL OPEN MY MOUTH IN PARABLES”

.

That is why the Bible is written largely in parables, as is written in Luke 8:10…“And He (Jesus) said, Unto you (His true disciples) it is given to know the mysteries of the kingdom of God: but to others in parables; that seeing they might not see, and hearing they might not understand.”

DO NOT DISTURB!

.

The reason why most church-goers do not wish to see the deeper truths false prophetof the Bible is simply this: they have a comfortable religion which allows them to continue on in their selfish ways, and at the same time deceived into believing they have Heaven’s blessing.

.

In other words, they have Heaven in one hand, and the world in the other.

.

Such a self-sacrificing life that Jesus lived would be far too much of a cross to bear!

.

THE SIGNS OF HEAVEN

.

Now the same principle applies to the Signs Of Heaven.Signs Of Heaven - Winter Constellations

.

This is a wonderful message inscribed in the very heavens!

.

And those who truly desire to receive the message attached to these signs may have their eyes opened to see these signs.

.

But for those who are without, these heavenly signs may not be seen.

.

Yes, those who do not wish to receive this end-time message will simply not see these things, even though they may try, to some extent.

.

.

.

.

.

.

.

.

“THE CONSTELLATIONS SHALL NOT GIVE THEIR LIGHT”

.

Listen, as Isaiah 13:9, 10 speaks of this very hour we are now in…“Behold, the summer w/woman & dovesday of the LORD cometh, cruel both with wrath and fierce anger…For the stars of heaven and the constellations thereof shall not give their light: the sun shall be darkened in his going forth, and the moon shall not cause her light to shine.”

.

These signs “in the sun…moon and…stars”, which Luke 21:25 prophesied of will be received and rejoiced over by those who have received (by grace), the love of Heaven’s truth.

.

But those who have NOT received the love of the truth, this entire message will appear as a total fraud.

.

.

.

.

.

.

.

.

“THE GOD OF THIS WORLD HATH BLINDED”

2nd Corinthians 4:4http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:Martin,_John_-_Satan_presiding_at_the_Infernal_Council_-_1824.JPG

.

Of course, Satan has been hard at work, making sure that this message is seemingly filled with errors.

.

And he will continue to make sure that this message appears as utter nonsense to as many as he can deceive, even “the very Elect if possible!”

“WONDERS IN THE HEAVENS”

Joel 2:30

.

But for those whose eyes are truly opened, not only these various signs, “in the sun…moon and…stars”, but also the message attached to them will shine ever so brightly, as a guiding light for all those are making the heavenward sojourn, out of this sin-darkened unbelieving world below!

A HEAVENLY HOBBY

.

.

.

.http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:1_vermont_night_stargazing_panorama_2009.jpg

“Lift up your eyes on high, and behold Who hath created these things; that brings out their host by number: He calls them all by names by the greatness of His might, for that He is strong in power; not one faileth.” Isaiah 40:26

.

The above verse is a plea from God to look up at the Heavens and behold Who has created these things.

.http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:New_york_times_square-terabass.jpg

In this busy work-a-day world, there are many very interesting things which can occupy one’s time and energy: hobbies, and careers, and entertainments and worries, and habits, to name just a few.

.

But as the child of God devotes his or her life to God, there should be a jealous guarding of one’s own heart… “Keep thy heart with all diligence; for out of it are the issues of life.” Proverbs 4:23.

.

The Christian wants nothing to get in the way of running that Christian Race.

“AND WHEN YE SEE THESE THINGS…

.

LOOK UP, LIFT UP YOUR HEAD”

.

But having said this, there is one hobby which every ‘Noble Berean’ may take up, which only compliments the pursuit of the heavenly Prize.

.http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:Astronomy_Amateur_3_V2.jpg

Yes, Signs Of Heaven becomes a wonderfully rewarding hobby which, unlike many less meaningful hobbies, pays off with rich, heavenly rewards. Everlasting rewards!

.

And unlike these people in this photo with equipment, all you need is fairly good vision, and a dark, starry night.

.

And once a person really gets to know these heavenly messengers, it will become very apparent that the message connected with these signs is truly a message to be heeded.

.

Thus will the Christian be able to share this message with others. And there are perhaps many nuances and hidden biblical truths to these signs which have yet to be discovered.

FIRST FIND ORION & 7 STARS

.Orion Constellation

The very first step in finding these many constellations, should be to find the two main constellations: Orion, and the 7 Stars (aka, The Big Dipper).

.

These two constellations represent Christ (Orion), and His Chur7 stars as Crossch (7 Stars).

.

And just as these are the easiest constellations to find, so too, the first place to begin studying the Bible is the Four Gospels (Matthew, Mark, Luke, John).

.

These four books present Christ and His Church, when He walked the earth, just as Orion and the 7 Stars represent Christ and His Church, as seen up in the heavens.

.

Then, once you are comfortable finding these two constellations, you can begin to locate the next closest constellations, and so on.

ANOTHER HEAVENLY HOBBY: PRAYER-WALKS

.

Now if you’re fortunate enough to be able to go on nightly walks, and you live in an area where you can safely view the stars, here is another Heavenly Hobby which Signs Of Heaven endorses…

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

Why not combine star-watching with prayer, as you walk? What a great way to draw closer to God!

.

It cannot be over-stressed, just how wonderful it is to walk under the dark canopy of Heaven, while lifting up one’s heart to our Heavenly Father! There is a closeness to God that cannot be described with words!

.

(And even if you cannot safely do this, you can always do such prayer-walks in the daytime, in a safe place, such as a mall, which is every bit as effective, prayer-wise.

.

And for those who are in confinement, one can view these starry signs on the Internet, or simply listen to Scripture on audio.

.

Either way, all such may enjoy God’s richest blessings at this very time in which God is pouring out all Heaven’s treasures upon anyone willing to forsake all, and follow Jesus!)

THRICE-DAILY PRAYERS

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

Now of course, the Bible commands us to, “pray without ceasing“. The Christian is to constantly talk with our Heavenly Father throughout the day.

.

But the Bible also holds up the godly life of Daniel, who, when captive in Babylon, still set aside three times daily, in which he knelt for special prayer.

.

And furthermore the Bible also says… “Evening, and morning, and at noon, will I pray, and cry aloud: and He shall hear my voice.” Psalm 55:17.

.

Even those who are bed-fast or in a prison cell can begin to imitate Daniel in this way. And if one is fortunate to be able to walk, then this thrice-daily prayer regimen can be combined with three walks daily and even nightly.
