Up until a few years ago, there has been a steady downhill decline of morality and Christianity in the 1st world nations: the very nations which once enthusiastically embraced the Christian Reformation.

.

But several years ago, it seems that all the stops have been pulled out, and Satan is now on the march! Beside the aggressive anti-Zionists who are who would love to kill all Jews and Christians, the immorality of Sodom & Gomorrah is now being pushed on our society and upon our school-age children!

.

And while all the craziness around the world is very upsetting, to say the least, Christians must realize that God is allowing these things for His own divine purpose!

JEREMIAH’S CUP FOR ALL NATIONS !http://christianimagesource.com/prophet_jeremiah_g341-prophet_jeremiah__image_2_p2281.html

.

One reason is that those nations which once enthusiastically embraced the Christian Reformation are being given over to the sin that they prized more than the righteousness they rejected, when they rejected Christianity…

.

Listen…“For thus saith the LORD God of Israel unto me (Jeremiah); 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

.

Here is a prophecy which is just now finding its fulfillment as we see the nations of the world  being filled with madness and insanity! They are now drinking the cup of God’s fury! And that’s why so many world events make no apparent sense or reason!

A WAKE-UP CALL?

.

But could there be another purpose in allowing all this insanity to occur? Does God have another reason for allowing these abominations?

.

Could it be that God is allowing these disturbing events as a wake-up call to His sleepy-eyed Church?

.

Listen to this prophecy concerning the days we are now in…“Likewise also as it was in the days of Lot; they did eat, they drank, they bought, they sold, they planted, they builded; But the same day that Lot went out of Sodom it rained fire and brimstone from heaven, and destroyed them all. Even thus shall it be in the day when the Son of man is revealed.” Luke 17:28-30

TO GET OUR ATTENTION?

.PICTURE: Unfunny Judgment Day Cartoon - companys-coming - revised

The Church, by-and-large, has been much too friendly with the world, with all its hedonistic pleasures and ambitious pursuits! And so, what else can God do to get the attention of a Church which is busy buying and selling, planting and building, marrying and embracing this dark world? 

.

Yes, it seems that Satan is now on the march, no longer working behind the scenes to bring us into the final trial! And his faithful citizens are joining with their master, to help bring about these final events with such rapidity that it is frightening beyond measure!

.

(As this not-so-funny Judgment Day cartoon pictures, this Christian has stopped watching and is enjoying the selfish pleasures of this world. But Judgment Day is not waiting around for him to wake up!)

ANY GOOD NEWS?

Well, if there is any Good News at this present hour it can be found in the following passage from Habakkuk 2:2, 3…“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.”

.

So when the vision begins to speak, God warns His faithful remnant to, “RUN!” But exactly what vision is it that will speak in these last days?

“THE WICKED SURROUND THE RIGHTEOUS”

TV indoctrination

.

Listen again to Habakkuk, now in Chapter 1:4…“Therefore the law is slacked, and judgment doth never go forth: for the wicked doth compass about the righteous; therefore wrong judgment proceedeth.” 

.

This is the vision which Habakkuk complains about to the Lord! And Habakkuk goes on to describe the rapidity with which these unbelievers spread their abominations through the land!

.

And isn’t it true that we are witnessing these world-wide paradigm shifts occurring  so swiftly, far quicker than any of us ever thought possible?

.

FLEE TO THE RAGGED ROCKS

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

And so, the prophet says “RUN!” And this end-time wake-up call is designed to strike fear in the hearts of God’s people!

.

And this last passage from Isaiah really puts an exclamation mark on what Habakkuk says…“In that day a man shall cast his idols of silver, and his idols of gold, which they made each one for himself to worship, to the moles and to the bats; To go into the clefts of the ragged rocks, for fear of the LORD, and for the glory of His majesty, when He ariseth to shake terribly the earth.” Isaiah 2:20, 21

.

While it’s needless to have to explain just what are the many idols that God’s people must cast away, it is a joy to explain about the “ragged rocks” which God’s people are to flee to!

HIDDEN MANNA

Revelation 2:17

These ragged rocks are the Hidden Manna found veiled in types and symbols in God’s Word. In other words, there are many overt and easily understood passages in Scripture. But God has also hidden many deeper truths, by wrapping them up in allegories and parables! But God is now revealing these deeper, allegorical truths to those who are humble and meek enough to receive them!

WIDE & NARROW GATES IN THE HEAVENS

Revelation 12 Woman chooses Narrow Way

. 

As the opening verse says, “Enter ye in at the strait gate: for wide is the gate, and broad is the way, that leadeth to destruction, and many there be which go in thereat: Because strait is the gate, and narrow is the way, which leadeth unto life, and few there be that find it.” Matthew 7:13-14 

.

So what are these two gates all about? And how can I choose the right door? Well, just read this article and these questions and more will be answered.

.

But before we explore these questions, let’s take a look at why these two sets of stars represent these two biblical gates.

.

(This sketch, while not 100% accurate, gives a fair portrayal of how this constellation group appears at winter’s end and even into June, when above the western horizon.)

.

.

HOW THE GATES RELATE TO ORION & DRAGON

Revelation 12 Woman & The Two Gates

.

This sketch below is when these constellations are in the eastern sky in early winter (However, this constellation group can even be seen as early as July, in the pre-dawn hours). In the eastern sky, it’s not so easily seen which gate the Revelation 12 Woman will enter. The Wide Gate is made of the two brightest stars of this Wave of Water Constellation. Satan spews out the deadly water of his false worldly ideologies; which many of these ideologies have a form of godliness, but in some way are not in harmony; or perhaps these worldly ideologies add to the Bible, which is strictly forbidden (see Deuteronomy 4:2). 

.  

On the other hand, the Strait Gate (narrow gate) is composed of the two brightest stars of the Orion The Reaper’s sickle. The true Strait Gate represents Jesus, the Word of God.  

.

Listen… “I [Jesus] am the door: by me if any man enter in, he shall be saved, and shall go in and out, and find pasture.” John 10:9
