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 much 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!

ARE WE AT THE END?

.

God presented His message that, “But the end of all things is at hand: be ye therefore sober, and watch unto prayer.” 1st Peter 4:7

.

Yes, every man, woman, and child who has lived since the day that Peter penned these God-given words in the above verse, have all went to their graves!

.

For all these, the end was at hand! And the end came and took them all away! 

.

It is just as James so aptly wrote, “What is your life? It is even a vapor, that appears for a little time, and then vanishes away.” James 4:14

‘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? Aren’t 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.html

Listen 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!

MADNESS ALL AROUND!

.

And just how do we know that we are drinking of God’s cup of fury?

.

Because, it plainly states…And they shall drink, and be moved, and be mad, because of the sword that I will send among them.” Jeremiah 25:16

.

Are we not seeing the madness all around? Well aren’t we?

.

.

.

.

.

JUST LOOK AROUND!

.

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 sodomy to school-children as if it is a wonderful thing!

.

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

GOOD NEWS: THERE IS A HIDING PLACE!

.

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 see this craziness 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

“SEEK YE THE LORD”

.

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

Well, listen to Zephaniah 2:3…“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.”

.

All tucked away in Zephaniah is the escape route! This is where we are to flee to! By seeking Christ’s righteousness and meekness! This is the door to safety!

HOW DO WE SEEK RIGHTEOUSNESS & MEEKNESS?

.

Listen to Christ…“Come unto Me, all ye that labour and are heavy laden, and I will give you Rest. Take My yoke upon you, and learn of Me; for I am meek and lowly in heart: and ye shall find Rest unto your souls. For My yoke is easy, and My burden is light.” Matthew 11:28-30 

.

Here it is! This is the Hiding Place from all the madness and wickedness which Satan, in all his fury, is seeking to destroy both you and your children!

.

And all Jesus wants you to do is to renounce this selfishly evil world, and turn to Him with all your heart, simply listening to His life-giving words! And by filling our heart with those life-giving words, our trust in Him will begin to grow! This is how we escape the madness!

.

And to merely sit at Jesus’ feet and soak in His life-giving words is, indeed, an easy yoke and a light burden, wouldn’t you agree?

THE WORLD TO COME, A PARADISE!

.

Yes, it won’t be long until all this craziness, horror, and extreme sadness all comes to an end! This crazy weird cartoon of a world will soon meet its fiery deluge!

.

And all those who decided to renounce this death-like existence, and follow Jesus as His disciples, will finally enter into an everlasting Paradise so wonderful, that it is beyond our comprehension!

.

So let’s begin to cry out for God’s mercy and grace! Let’s start to redirect our focus on the things of Heaven! And let’s throw off our chains of bondage to the sin and selfishness and insanity of this present world, and begin to live in reference to Heaven and the joy that awaits us and awaits all those whom we are praying for!

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. 

.

star-chart ursa major

.

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.
