Flee To The Mountains, Part 22: “Will I Die In The Mountain? CONTINUED”

“Not forsaking the assembling of ourselves together,

as the manner of some is; but exhorting one another:

and so much the more, as ye see the day approaching.”

Hebrews 10:25

 

.

.

.

.

.

This above verse from Hebrews commands us to, “not forsake the assembling of ourselves together, and all the more as we see the day approaching.”

.

But the question we must ask ourselves is, “We are to assemble together until we see WHAT DAY APPROACHING?”

HABAKKUK SAYS, “RUN!”

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

Well, the day approaching is the day in which God’s people are commanded to, “RUN!”

.

Listen to the prophet, 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 2:2, 3

.

Here is a very cryptic prophecy concerning the end-times, in which God’s people are counseled by God to, “RUN!”

.

This is the long-awaited day which we were looking for!

“LORD…I CANNOT ESCAPE TO THE MOUNTAIN!”

.

But just like Lot, God’s people are fearful of having to vacate their local congregation. “How will we be spiritually fed?

.

How will our children handle not being able to go to their little children’s class each week at church?

.

And what about their friends, and our friends?

.

Who will we be able to fellowship with if we must leave?”

.

Well, these are real fears! And God fully understands His people’s fears.

“RIVERS & STREAMS OF (LIVING) WATERS”

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

But God has given us great and precious promises concerning this day, such as Isaiah 30:25…“And there shall be upon every high mountain, and upon every high hill, rivers and streams of (living) waters in the day of the great slaughter, when the towers (the apostate churches) fall.” (parenthesis comments by this editor)

.

Here is a great and precious promise, howbeit written in allegorical language! God will supply an abundance of living waters for God’s people, as they arrive on those spiritual mountains in the day when their church-world reaches its apostasy!

“IT IS THE TIME OF JACOB’S TROUBLE”

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

Well, none of us know exactly how this Time of Trouble will unfold in all its details.

.

But we do know certain truths. For instance, we know that God refers to this day as ,“The Time of Jacob’s Trouble”, which is a great time of wrestling with God. (see Jeremiah 30:6, 7)

.

And frankly, this Time of Trouble is already beginning, even while this work-a-day world carries on their daily business as usual.

.

Yes, our night of wrestling has already begun!

BLOODHOUNDS & BLACK HELICOPTERS?

And what about the coming months? Will there be black helicopters and bloodhounds chasing God’s people through the forest and hills?

.

Well, perhaps that will come. Nobody knows for sure at this present hour.

“A TABLE IN THE WILDERNESS?”

.

But the point of today’s devotional, is to reassure ourselves that whatever spiritual blessings we think we will be missing out on, by leaving our local congregation, will be more than compensated for as we discover that God can indeed, “furnish a table in the wilderness” Psalm 78:19.

.

Yes, God can certainly provide for all our spiritual needs, both for us, and also for our children in those spiritual mountains!

 

.

And the fact is, the fellowship down at church probably wasn’t all that great anyway! A whole lot of fun and worldly chatter, and social events, and a once-a-week, milk-of-the-Word spoon-feeding.

.

And church, to a great degree was like a social club and fraternal order, overspread with a thin veneer of religiosity.

“AS THE LIGHT OF SEVEN DAYS”

.

But the Lord has much greater blessings to offer those who are escaped from Babylon!

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

Because, as we continue reading Isaiah, Chapter 30, verse 26 continues…“Moreover the light of the moon (the Church) shall be as the light of the Sun (Christ), and the light of the Sun (Christ) shall be sevenfold, as the light of seven days, in the day that the LORD bindeth up the breach of his people, and healeth the stroke of their wound.” (Parenthesis comments by this editor)

.

Here again is spiritual, allegorical language which reveals that the Church (symbolized by the Moon) will shine with the brightness of the Sun (of Righteousness), Jesus in the day when the towers (churches) fall. And the Sun (of Righteousness) will shine sevenfold, as the light of seven days!

.

In the simplest terms, God’s separated Elect people will be enjoying rich fellowship and communion with Christ seven days of the week, instead of just one morning per week, as they now do! Christ’s light will shine upon them “as seven days!”

“I WILL GIVE TO EAT OF THE HIDDEN MANNA”

Revelation 2:17

.

And once God’s Elect people escape from the Babylonish church-world, they will be delighted to discover the abudance of deep Bible truths that they never heard before down at the local congregation!

.

And as far as our children are concerned, God can certainly bless them while out of the churches!

.

And let’s face it! Statistics show that young people are right now streaming out of the church-world in droves to enjoy the pleasures of sin in the secular world! Statistics show that God is not blessing our churched children at this present hour.

.

So anything would be an improvement over the present situation within the churches and denominations!

NO HOLY SPIRIT, NO BLESSINGS!

Constellation- Woman of Revelation 12 flees to the mountains Mark 13:14

.

And let’s not forget that God’s Spirit has been taken out of the midst of the church-world.

.

Listen…“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

.

So, in the light of such passages as this above passage from 2nd Timothy, there certainly can be no spiritual blessings within the churches!

“COME OUT OF HER, MY PEOPLE!”

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

Listen again…“Come out of her, My people, lest you partake of her sins, and receive of her plagues”, Revelation 18:4

.

So here is revealed that those who refuse to come out of her, will receive of her plagues.

.

And so, what we really need to fear is the curse that will come down upon us, should we remain in the churches, and refuse to come out!

NOBLE BEREANS?

Well, the Good News in all this negativity is that God has graciously allowed us time to study these things in hopes of gaining a greater understanding of this very critically important issue!

.

And so, as good and noble Bereans, let’s begin to study, day-by-day, for our own selves to, “To see if those things were so” (see Acts 17:11)

LET’S BEGIN OUR WRESTLINGS!

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

And now, the hour has come that we must begin to engage ourselves through this night of wrestling before us!

.

And as we faithfully refuse to give up our wrestling match, we will finally reach, “the dawning of the day”. (see for instance, 1st Peter 1:20)

.

And in that day, we will be able to say, “I have seen God face to face, and my life is preserved.” Genesis 32:30

.

And God can say to us…“Thy name shall be called…Israel: for as a prince hast thou power with God and with men, and hast prevailed.” Genesis 32:28

REVELATION 12 WOMAN CONSTELLATION

Winter Constellations in West

.

This most amazing phenomenon is seen throughout the winter. Although it can be observed most of the winter, it is seen best when it is the western part of the sky, at winter’s end (The end of winter being the final scene of this heavenly Gospel story). Orion , the Dragon, and the Glorious White Horse are beginning to descend into the western horizon (sketch to right is Winter Constellations descending into western horizon. This can actually be seen as early as December, in the pre-dawn hours).

.

And at this point it is apparent that the Fleeing Woman of Revelation 12 Constellation  is veering toward the two bright stars, known as Castor and Pollux (sketch to below left). But the Wide Gate Stars are composed of the two brightest stars of the Auriga Constellation, known as the star, Capella, and the star, Menkalinan. The two stars, Castor and Pollux, make up the concept of the Orion’s Narrow Gate Stars.

Revelation 12 Woman & Orion's Gate & Wide Gate.

This can even be observed into June in the western sky (for a short time just after dark). While a dark night is best for seeing the Woman Constellation, the 4 stars which comprise the Narrow Gate/Wide Gate Stars can be seen even under mediocre conditions. It begins with the Fleeing Woman of Revelation 12 Constellation (AKA Ursa Major) going towards these two doors.

.

The sketch to left shows, the two doors are each composed of two bright stars. The two bright stars that comprise the Narrow Gate are the two brightest stars of the Orion the Reaper’s sickle. The two stars that comprise the ‘Wide Gate’ Stars are the two brightest stars of the wave of water that comes out of the Dragon Constellation’s mouth (for explanation of “Wave of Water”, just click here). The stars that make up the ‘Narrow Gate’ are about half the width of the Wide Gate (see sketch to right).

(For more information on Orion’s sickle, just click here,“Orion The Reaper”.)

.

 

Editor’s note: These sketches on this page are merely sketches. The stars are not in their exact place. 

 

However, they are close enough to find them in the night sky. But as with most stars, it takes persistence to finally locate them.
