Revelation 16:4-6, Part 2: “The Third Plague CONTINUED”

“And the third angel poured out his vial

upon the rivers and fountains of waters;

and they became blood.

And I heard the angel of the waters say,

Thou art righteous, O Lord,

which art, and wast, and shalt be,

because Thou hast judged thus.

For they have shed the blood of saints and prophets,

and thou hast given them blood to drink;

for they are worthy.”

Revelation 16:4-6

Is there enough bloodshed going on in the world today?

.

Well, to this stupid question, most people would roll their eyes and sigh, because it seems as if the world has gone crazy with violence and sin!

IS THE WORLD’S LOVE “WAXING COLD”?

Listen to this prophecy concerning this hour we now live in…“And because iniquity shall abound, the love of many shall wax cold.” Matthew 24:12

.

Can we say that the love of many is waxing cold in today’s violent world?

TV, A DAILY DELUGE OF BLOOD AND SIN

Now, in yesterday’s devotional (click here), the spotlight was on this very horrible condition of today’s world, and how Christians, along with the world’s inhabitants, are getting our fill of all the bloody accounts on the daily news shows.

 

.

And combined with all the other violence and sin on many television shows these days, it would appear that God is giving us blood to drink…For they have shed the blood of saints and prophets, and Thou hast given them blood to drink; for they are worthy.” Revelation 16:6

.

.

.

.

THEY WILL NOT ENDURE SOUND DOCTRINE

.

Today’s apostate church-world is doing much violence to the Bible, even as it is written…“For the time will come when they will not endure sound doctrine; but after their own lusts shall they heap to themselves teachers, having itching ears; And they shall turn away their ears from the truth, and shall be turned unto fables.” 2nd Timothy 4:3, 4

.

This above passage from 2nd Timothy is fulfilled by our apostate condition alone.

.

Yes, the world and the churches have rejected the soul-saving message of the Bible, trading away our Salvation in hot pursuit of the selfish pleasures, and proud, ambitious aspirations of this, Satan’s kingdom!

GETTING OUR FILL OF SIN

.

And because most Christians are spending copious amounts of time, watching television, and listening to radio, and reading newspapers, and viewing the Internet, we are getting our fill of all the bloody dramas, news stories, and sexually-charged comedies which are literally everywhere these days on the various media!

.

Thus, the typical Christian is drinking blood, via today’s modern media, instead of obeying God, by stopping his ears from hearing of blood, and shutting his eyes from seeing evil, as it commands us to do in Isaiah 33:15.

.

Listen…The sinners in Zion are afraid;

fearfulness hath surprised the hypocrites.

Who among us shall dwell with the devouring fire?

who among us shall dwell with everlasting burnings?

He that walketh righteously, and speaketh uprightly;

…that stoppeth his ears from hearing of blood,

and shutteth his eyes from seeing evil;

 He shall dwell on high:

his place of defence shall be the munitions of rocks:

bread shall be given him; his waters shall be sure.

Thine eyes shall see the King in His beauty:

they shall behold the Land that is very far off.

Isaiah 33:14-17

.

Here we have a prophecy very well-suited for the frightful hour we now find ourselves in!

.

But sadly, God’s people are not stopping our ears from “the hearing of blood”!

.

“O MY GOD…SAVE ME FROM BLOODY MEN!”

Psalm 59:1, 2

.

The fact is, the Lord has allowed Satan to turn this world into a terrorist’s http://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:ISIL_Execution_of_man_September_2014.jpgparadise. A very bloody world indeed!

SIGNS IN THE HEAVENS!

.Man in Moon Over Eagle Ridge full moon image

Now if all this isn’t terrible enough, the Lord has begun to give us a heavenly message which the Prophet Joel foretold of long ago…“The sun shall be turned into darkness, and the moon into blood, before the great and the terrible day of the LORD come.” Joel 2:31

.

Well, just how in the world could this possibly be fulfilled!?

.

Spiritually fulfilled! That’s how!

.

.

.

.

SUN OF RIGHTEOUSNESS DARKENED

.

Yes, the light of Christ, “the Sun of Righteousness” has been all but darkened in the apostate churches and in all the world.

.

And now, the Lord is revealing the signs spoken of in Luke 21:25…“And there shall be signs in the sun, and in the moon, and in the stars; and upon the earth distress of nations, with perplexity; the sea and the waves roaring;”

.

And so, as we see these signs being fulfilled, we are even drinking in more blood because of these signs (see “Moon Into Blood Trilogy” on www.theheavensdeclare.net website)

.

And so, one could even say that the heavens are even turning to blood, via this frightening message written in the heavens!

.

.

.

.

.

“GOOD NEWS FROM A FAR COUNTRY!”

Proverbs 25:25

.

Well, is there any Good News to hear in this world, deluged by all these bloody messages?

.

Well, yes. The Good News is that these signs in the sun, moon, and stars are holding out the scepter of Salvation for any and every man, woman, and child willing to reach out take hold of it!

.

And anyone who desires to become a wise man, can begin to follow that bright star, Arcturus, as it leads us onward and upward out of this hopelessly bloody world, to the Heavenly City of Zion, the everlasting Land of joy unspeakable!

.

And concerning those who do respond to this message, the following prophecy will be fulfilled…

.

“Therefore the redeemed of the LORD shall return,

and come with singing unto Zion;

and everlasting joy shall be upon their head:

they shall obtain gladness and joy;

and sorrow and mourning shall flee away.”

Isaiah 51:11

TODAY’S FEATURED HEAVENLY SIGN

.

.

COULD THERE BE A GREATER SIGN?”

.

In the opening verse, “And I saw another sign in heaven, great and marvellous, seven angels having the seven last plagues; for in them is filled up the wrath of God.” Revelation 15:1, is a direct reference to the Signs In Heaven, which God is just now graciously revealing.

.

Notice that this above verse says… “And I saw another sign in heaven, great and marvellous“.

.

If ever there was a great and marvelous sign in Heaven, this 7 Star Constellation seems to be just that! And it is the easiest of all constellations to locate (excepting for those in the southernmost latitudes of the Earth who cannot see it). It seems to stand alone in the northern sky, outshining any other constellation in the night heavens! 

.

As for its significance, it is easy to see the message for which it was created to bring. It looks like a bowl. A giant bowl! And in the winter, it begins to slowly tip through the night, as if it is finally spilling out its contents upon the earth, as stated in Revelation… “And the first (angel) went, and poured out his vial upon the earth” Revelation 16:2.

.

And so it is not hard to see the message which this constellation presents. In the summer it begins to slowly tip. But in winter it does fully appear to pour out its contents upon the Earth.
