How Do I See These Signs Of Heaven? Part 4: “The Two Great Signs In The Heavens!”

To read Part 1, go here…JULY 31 (How Do I See These Signs of Heaven?)

The Gospel of Jesus Christ is the greatest truth in all the universe!

Yes, the Gospel of Jesus Christ is the incredibly Good News of God’s love for us miserable sinners!

.

And it is the story of Christ and His beloved Church. No, not some particular denomination. But interspersed throughout the world, are those individuals who have received a new heart through the power of God’s Holy Spirit. This is the true Church of God.

GOSPEL WRITTEN IN NATURE

.

Now, if one closely examines the various aspects of nature, it might be discovered that Christ and His Church are inscribed here and there, throughout the created things.

For instance, in music, the two primary notes which form the very foundation of harmonic music are the 1st and 5th notes of a scale. And by comparing this with the Ten Commandments, it is seen that the 1st Commandment is all about God’s supreme position over every thing and every one. And the 5th Commandment is about family. It is all about a child honoring his father and mother.

WRITTEN IN THE HEAVENS

Not only in the music world, but this same concept of Christ’s love for His Church can be seen in the heavens!

.

Yes, the two greatest constellations in the night-sky are a picture of Christ and His family, the Church!

ORION & THE 7 STARS

.

Well, it is Orion and The 7 Stars (also known as The Big Dipper).

.

7 Stars Constellation as The CrossThat’s right! This incredible phenomenon is seen in the night heavens!

.

Orion, of course, represents Christ. And the 7 Stars represents the Church of Christ.

THE TWO GREATEST CONSTELLATIONS

And so, here once again, the Lord has inscribed this concept even in the stars of heaven!

.

Christ and His Church!

.http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:Plough_big_dipper.svg 

The two greatest truths!

.

And these two constellations are the easiest constellations to locate! It only makes sense!

GREATEST BIBLICAL CONCEPT TOO!

This massive constellation is comprised of the various constellations on this website.

This same concept  of Christ and His Church is likewise found throughout the Bible.

.

Oh yes, in the Old Testament, Christ is not specifically named.

.

And yet, the entire Old Testament speaks of Him, either as “The Lord”, or “God”, or veils Him in types and symbols.

DAVID, A TYPE OF CHRIST

.

For instance, the Old Testament uses David as a type of Christ. And so, when David is mentioned in Psalms, it really is speaking of Christ.

.

And of course, one only has to glance at the New Testament to realize that Christ and His people are the main focus.

7 STARS NOT VISIBLE IN FARTHEST REGIONS OF THE SOUTH

.ABOVE PICTURE: 7 Stars pouring out bowls of wrath

Now, it should be noted that the 7 Stars (aka The Big Dipper) may not be seen by many who live in the southernmost regions of the globe.

.

But God has provided Internet for such a time as this, to allow easy access to the heavens.

.

And so, even those living far south can now study all these things, even though they may not be able to enjoy literally seeing them in the sky.

.

Well, the Good News is, that we are living in an hour in which God is calling the world to become a member of His Church.

.

And for those who are willing to seek after this great privilege, the prophet, Joel says… “And it shall come to pass, that whosoever shall call on the name of the Lord shall be saved.” Acts 2:21

COME LIVE FOREVER!

.

Just think about it! God has graciously provided a way of escape out of this doomed planet, into a world which will never end!

.

And those who finally do enter into that “Promised Land” will live forever in peace and joy and harmony, together with the multitudes of redeemed persons who also have called upon the name of the Lord throughout Earth’s history!

AS THE STARS FOR EVER AND EVER!

And then, as one of the redeemed, your name too will also be inscribed forever in the heavens…“And they that be wise shall shine as the brightness of the firmament; and they that turn many to righteousness as the stars for ever and ever.” Daniel 12:3

TODAY’S FEATURED HEAVENLY SIGN

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 Church (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).

.

7 stars as Cross

.

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…

.

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

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

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.
