Habakkuk Says “Run!” Part 8: “This Crazy Weird Cartoon World!”

.

.

.

.

.

“For thus saith the LORD God of Israel unto me;

Take the wine cup of this fury at My hand,

and cause all the nations,

to whom I send thee, to drink it.

And they shall drink, and be moved, and be mad,

because of the sword that I will send among them.”

Jeremiah 25:15, 16

The Book of Habakkuk has been the source of great intrigue and much speculation! After all, it is a prophecy which concerns the last days. And it speaks of a time in the future in a mysterious manner…. “And the LORD answered me, and said, Write the vision, and make it plain upon tables, that he may run that readeth it. For the vision is yet for an appointed time, but at the end it shall speak, and not lie: though it tarry, wait for it; because it will surely come, it will not tarry.” Habakkuk 2:2, 3

.

And as this above passage says, there will be a vision which speaks at the end. And when this vision finally speaks, then whosoever reads and understands that vision, may, “RUN!”

 A TARRYING TIME

.

When May 21, 2011 came and went, those who had been trumpeting the message concerning Planet Earth’s Last Day, became the objects of world-wide scorn and mockery. And the Bible Teacher at the center of this end-time message was the primary target of all that mockery!

.

But what those messengers did not take into account was that, “delay” of an important event is an integral part of Scripture.

“THOUGH IT TARRY, WAIT FOR IT!”

.

http://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/commons/3/38/Tissot_Habakkuk.jpg

For instance, listen to the prophecy of Habakkuk… “And the LORD answered me, and said, Write the vision, and make it plain upon tables, that he may run that readeth it. For the vision is yet for an appointed time, but at the end it shall speak, and not lie: though it tarry, wait for it; because it will surely come, it will not tarry.” Habakkuk 2:3

.

Yes, Habakkuk’s vision concerning the end-time exodus out of the smothering of God’s people by Chaldeans (unbelievers), was a message which was accompanied by a time of tarrying. God’s people were to “RUN!” when the vision spoke at the end, but that vision would tarry. And we were to wait for it!

‘LAST CALL’ NOW GOING OUT!

.

But now we have arrived at the very end of earth’s history.

Oh, you don’t believe we’re at the end?

.

Well just look around! Don’t you see it? Don’t you sense that we’re at the end? Are not the signs of the times crying out from every corner of the world?

.

Are we not seeing madness all around us? Doesn’t our society seem like a crazy, weird cartoon, where things just don’t make sense?

GOD’S CUP OF FURY!

.

http://christianimagesource.com/prophet_jeremiah_g341-prophet_jeremiah__image_2_p2281.htmlListen to God’s pronouncement…“For thus saith the LORD God of Israel unto me; Take the wine cup of this fury at My hand, and cause all the nations, to whom I send thee, to drink it. And they shall drink, and be moved, and be mad, because of the sword that I will send among them.” Jeremiah 25:15, 16

.

This above passage from Jeremiah wasn’t for Jeremiah’s day! NO! This above declaration was given for our day!

.

God’s cup of fury is for, “all the kingdoms of the world, which are upon the face of the earth:” Jeremiah 25:26

.

And now we are beginning to drink of God’s cup of fury!

Just look around!

.

Seemingly nice people are going crazy and senselessly shooting and killing scores of people for no good reason!

.http://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:ISIL_Execution_of_man_September_2014.jpg

Our elected officials are making laws allowing grown men to use the “The Women’s Bathroom” in public places! Isn’t that madness?

.

False religions are encouraging their followers to commit senseless acts of violence, murder, and suicide, all around the world!

.

And speaking of suicide, have you noticed some weird financial suicide attempt, in which politicians are now giving away trillions of dollars that we don’t even have, which will bankrupt our society!

.

Public schools beginning to promote “the sin of Sodom” to school-children as if it is a wonderful thing!

.

Well, this is just ‘the short-list’. But the pandemic madness continues to grow as we continue to drink of God’s cup of fury!

“And because iniquity shall abound, the love of many shall wax cold.”

Matthew 24:12 

.

Yes, when the persecution of God’s faithful remnant ceased after the Dark Ages, Satan instead began to embrace the Church, causing us to lay down our spiritual armor and “join in the fun with our newly-acquired ‘friend’, the world”!

.

http://nl.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bestand:Cannibalism_1571.PNG

But these “kisses of an enemy” were merely a deceitful trap to render God’s Church ineffectual by our earthly-minded pursuit of the things of this seemingly friendly world. (see Proverbs 27:6)

.

And so, O trembling child of faith, don’t be surprised when the world just keeps getting worse and worse!

.

Sin is a bottomless pit!

.

And, it appears that we are going to finally witness the totality of sin’s true depths, just prior to Christ’s Return, to rescue us from all this soon-coming madness!

GOOD NEWS! “THOU (GOD) ART MY HIDING PLACE!”

Psalm 32: & 119:114 & Isaiah 32:2

.

But there is still some Good News in the midst of all this doom & gloom! Yes, there exists a place of refuge, for all those who realize all this crazy pandemonium and want to escape while the door of mercy is still ajar!

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

.

And the door to safety is within reach of all who desire to enter… “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 for their iniquity: the earth also shall disclose her blood, and shall no more cover her slain.” Isaiah 26:20, 21

.

Yes, as this above passage reveals, there is a hiding place… “a place of refuge, and for a covert from storm and from rain.” Isaiah 4:6

REVELATION 12 WOMAN CONSTELLATION

.star-chart ursa major summerr

.

This page is about the Big Dipper, also called the Great Bear constellation (Ursa Major ). However, the ancient pagan cultures did not see this constellation as God intended it to be seen. It is actually a headless woman in childbirth.  This is seen in springtime. It is seen in the northern skies. 

.

.

But as the seasons progress, this travailing woman flips upside down, now appearing as a woman with upraised arms like eagle wings who is running (eventually flying, as shown in sketch on right) into the wilderness (westward). The single star representing her birth-child (Christ) now becomes her head (“Christ is the head of the church.” Ephesians 5:23

.

The 7 Stars (Big Dipper) is easy to see with its very bright 7 stars. But the Revelation 12 Woman (Ursa Major) must be seen on a dark starry night, away from city lights. 

.

These are star charts from Wikipedia, with sketches of the Woman added.
