During the late 1930’s, there came a charming rascal named Douglas Corrigan, who loved aviation, preparing his plane to make a trans-Atlantic crossing. And then he flew that plane from Long Beach California to New York, but was refused permission to make that trans-Atlantic flight to Ireland, his ancestral heritage.

.

.

.

.

.

“ACCIDENTALLY” FLEW TO IRELAND INSTEAD OF LONG BEACH!

.

Well, this gifted mechanic and aviator “accidentally” got mixed up during his flight back https://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:Douglas_Groce_Corrigan_%28afdotmil%29.jpgto Long Beach and miraculously ended up in, of all places, Ireland, the very place he desired to go!

.

And in spite of all the world-wide attention he received and his denial, he was tagged with the name, “Wrong-way Corrigan”. He wrote a one-chapter book, called, “That’s My Story!”. And overall, Corrigan made quite a bit of money during the next few years.

So just how does this little story connect with the Gospel of our Salvation? Well, maybe a better question would be, “Just how does this story of “Wrong-way Corrigan” apply to today’s church-world?”

After all, God has given His Church its marching orders.

.

The Bible was graciously placed in the hands of the Church. And so, we have our flight plan, so-to-speak… “Keep My commandments, and live; and My law as the apple of thine eye.” Proverbs 7:2

.

The Bible is a blue-print for the conduct of the Church, as well as for individual Christians.

.

But just like ol’ Wrong-Way Corrigan, the church-world, to a great degree, has decided to, “do its own thing”, as the saying goes!

WRONG-WAY JONAH

.http://christianimagesource.com/prophet_jonah_g213-prophet_jonah__image_5_p1214.html

The story of the prophet, Jonah, is the story of a man who wasn’t content with the marching-orders he received from God.

.

And so, Jonah did what Wrong-way Corrigan did. Instead of going to Nineveh, he “flew” in the opposite direction, to Tarshish, a wealthy commercial trading city. But God didn’t allow Jonah to get away with his rebellious deed!

TODAY’S CHURCH HAS SAILED TO TARSHISH

PICTURE: companys-coming - revised

.

Today, the church-world has likewise been taking off in its own direction.

.

Like “wrong-way” Jonah, we too, have sailed to Tarshish, so-to-speak!

.

We have been deceived into thinking that we can kick back and enjoy the pleasures and pursuits of this cornucopia world, instead of warning the world to flee from the wrath to come!

.

Oh yes, we tell people about Jesus, to a certain extent. But our words and our lifestyle preach two vastly different sermons!

MANY WORLDLY PURSUITS!

.

Instead of modeling itself after the early church written about extensively in the Book of Acts, the churches have patterned themselves largely after https://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:Lux_Mundi,_the_sculpture_of_Jesus_at_Solid_Rock_Church.jpgthe world: clubs, parties, plays, comedians, dramas, sensual and pop music, rock bands, sensual dress-codes, sports, pep-rallies, movies, pleasure excursions, lavish church-buildings, emulating worldly behavior, prosperity-https://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:Rocky_Mountain_High_School,_football_field.jpgdriven gospels, joking preachers, women pastors/elders, some unbiblical church-doctrines, allowing abortions, getting involved in politics, encouraging ambitious careers, encouraging lavish homes and grounds, and needless pleasure-vehicles, various birthday parties, bridal/baby showers, television, games & amusements, banquets, joining unbelievers in secular social and community events, and similar non-biblical pursuits, together have turned today’s churches into little more than social/fraternal clubs covered with a thin veneer of religiosity.

WORLDLY PLEASURES NOT ALL FORSAKEN!

.

https://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:Douglas_Groce_Corrigan_%28afdotmil%29.jpg

Oh, it’s not that an occasional camp-out, or a potluck, etc., is wrong.

.

.

But when churches pile up all these worldly pleasures together, they begin to become overwhelmed by worldliness, forgetting their true purpose, to a great extent, becoming a fraternal/social club with, perhaps, a somewhat thin veneer of religiosity.

.

Listen to James…“Ye have lived in pleasure on the earth, and been wanton; ye have nourished your hearts, as in a day of slaughter.” James 5:5

.

Instead of modeling themselves after the early Church, today’s church-world has mingled the sacred with the common, bringing in many worldly elements!

THE WORLD IS WATCHING

.

https://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:Douglas_Groce_Corrigan_%28afdotmil%29.jpg

The world closely watches the Church, and Satan points out to them the vast inconsistencies between the early Church and today’s hedonistic, opulent Church!

http://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:Pierre-Auguste_Renoir,_La_loge_(The_Theater_Box).jpg

.

But while Wrong-Way Corrigan apparently got away with his shenanigan, the Church will not be so lucky!

.

Even now, the churches and their private school academies have become so compromised with worldly behavior, that there is no more true Salvation there…

CHURCH GIVES BIRTH TO WIND

.

https://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:Douglas_Groce_Corrigan_%28afdotmil%29.jpg

Listen to this amazing verse concerning the day we are now in…“We have been with child, we have been in pain, we have as it were brought forth wind; we have not wrought any deliverance in the earth; neither have the inhabitants of the world fallen.” Isaiah 26:18

 

.

Here above is a prophecy concerning the Church. Today’s church-world has not brought forth Jesus Christ. We have instead brought forth wind. Neither has the world fallen. Nor has the world confessed that of a truth Jesus is in her, the Church.

BABYLON, THE HARLOT CHURCH

.

https://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:Douglas_Groce_Corrigan_%28afdotmil%29.jpg

God has pronounced the church-world to now be part of this Babylonian world. And Hehttp://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:Burgkmair_whore_babylon_color.jpg has vacated the churches, leaving the “man of sin”, Satan to fill the void!

.

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;” 2nd Timothy 4:3

.

Here is a prophecy which foretells of the day when the churches become fully apostate.

“COME OUT OF HER, MY PEOPLE!”

.

And so, just what are we to do about this unacceptable situation in our church-http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:Tissot_The_Flight_of_the_Prisoners.jpgworld?

.

Well, God is now giving us our new marching orders…“And I heard another voice from Heaven, saying, Come out of her, My people, that ye be not partakers of her sins, and that ye receive not of her plagues.” Revelation 18:4

.

Yes, there is hope, but only in one direction! And so, God is now calling His people to come out of the Church-world which He has named Babylon, Mother of Harlots!

.

And so, God’s people are to obey our flight instructions. And those who refuse to come out will be in danger of partaking of her sins, and receiving of her plagues which are already beginning to fall upon the apostate church-world!

TODAY’S PRAYER…

“Dear Lord, Open my eyes to the true condition of the churches. Help me to come out of Babylon, and flee to the refuge of the mountains which surround, “Jerusalem which is now, and is in bondage with her children.” (Galatians 4:25)…

TODAY’S FEATURED HEAVENLY SIGN

.

.

.

.Serpent Constellation

.

A new constellation has been revealed, as of about May 29th, 2014. This constellation appears as a serpent (snake). Its body is comprised of stars from the Bootes Constellation, and its jaws are made of the four stars which Babylonians saw as the head of Draco, the Dragon. It also has a small single star for an eye.

.

.

Five Wise, Five Foolish Virgins Stars

.

Now in this constellation is a group of five stars, which will be called The ‘Five Foolish Virgins’ Stars”. These are located on the opposite side of the Glorious Crown of 12 Stars (AKA Corona Borealis), from the ‘Five Wise Virgins’ Stars. But one big difference between the two is, that The Five Wise are curved around the Glorious Crown, while the Five Foolish are curved away from it!
