Flee To The Mountains, Part 17: “Even The Stars Say, ‘FLEE!'”

“Flee out of the midst of Babylon,

and deliver every man his soul:

be not cut off in her iniquity;

for this is the time of the LORD’S vengeance;

He will render unto her a recompense.”

Jeremiah 51:6

.

.

.

.

.

Throughout nature there has never been discovered an actual picture story of the Gospel of God’s wonderful Salvation plan.

.

Oh yes, every thing in nature proclaims some aspect of the Gospel, from the tiniest atom to the greatest star!

.

But nowhere are there actual pictures created by God.

.

Oh, but that’s not quite true!

.

Actually there are indeed pictures which portray the Gospel story!

.

You see, God has set the stars in just the right place, so that by “connecting the dots”, so to speak, they proclaim the wonderful Good News of Salvation!

3 SETS OF CONSTELLATIONS

.

.

From the beginning of spring to the end of winter, the constellations move slowly through the night-sky, offering a spectacular display of three sets of Bible constellations: the summer, fall and winter constellations!

.

Summer Constellations

URSA MAJOR

.http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:Ursa_Major2.jpg

.

Now one of the major Bible constellations of this Gospel-written-in-the-sky, is seen in Ursa Major, commonly referred to as, “The Great Bear”.

.

.

.

.

But this infamous constellation was originally created to portray a woman. In the spring and summer months she appears as a headless woman who is with-child. But as the seasons change, this constellation flips completely upside down, and now appears as a running woman. And the little star that represented her child-in-the-womb, now becomes her head.

And she now appears as the fleeing woman of Revelation 12, fleeing westward.

GOD’S PEOPLE TO FLEE

.

Now, Matthew, Mark, and Luke each speak of a day in which God’s people are counseled to http://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:Genesis19-17.jpg“flee to the mountains!”

.

Listen to Matthew’s prophecy…“When ye therefore shall see the abomination of desolation, spoken of by Daniel the prophet, stand in the holy place, (whoso readeth, let him understand:) Then let them which be in Judaea flee into the mountains:” Matthew 24:15, 16

.

Now of course, this above passage is written in veiled, allegorical language.

.

And so, most people who look at it think it only speaks of those living in literal Jerusalem.

.

But that is why this above verse cautions, “Whoso reads, let him understand.”

HABAKKUK SAYS, “RUN!”http://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/commons/3/38/Tissot_Habakkuk.jpg

.

But the prophet, Habakkuk, also speaks of a time when God’s people are to flee.

.

Listen again…“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 again, both these passages are concerning the last days.

.

And both passages counsel God’s people to, “FLEE!”

.

HOW CAN I KNOW FOR SURE?

.

.Signs Of Heaven - Winter Constellations

Well, there are other similar passages.

.

But the question that must be asked is, “How can I know that God really wants ME  to flee? And just where is it that I am supposed to flee to? After all, both passages are confusing, to say the least!”

.

Now here is where this marvelous sign in the heavens makes clear just where God wants His people to flee…

.

You see, Ursa Major is just one constellation among a number of Signs Of Heaven constellations. 

.

.

.

.

.

THE WIDE AND NARROW GATE STARS

.Revelation 12 Woman & wide and narrow gates

.

And here is a very remarkable connection between This Revelation 12 Woman and two other of the four winter constellations.

.

One winter constellation is that of Orion. The other interactive constellation is that of the Revelation 12 Dragon. And one aspect which makes them interactive is that the two brightest stars in Orion’s Sickle, and the two brightest stars in the Dragon’s Wave of Water symbolize the Narrow Gate and the Broad Gate, as spoken of in Matthew 7:13, 14

.

Listen…“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

.

And if this isn’t remarkable enough, the Revelation 12 Woman is running toward both, and yet is decidedly swerving toward the Narrow Gate!

.

.

.

.

.

CRITICS & SKEPTICS NEED NOT APPLY

.Revelation 12 Woman chooses Narrow Way

.

And so, God has created this marvelous and unbelievable constellation group to show where He wants His people to flee: to the Narrow Gate!

.

Now there are many skeptics and critics in today’s world. And to see this great phenomenon in the sky probably requires more time, effort, and fervent prayer than most are willing to devote themselves to. And let’s face it, skeptics are NOT normally given to child-like faith, which is another necessary ingredient to being a truth-seeker.

.

But those who are indeed truth-seekers will be delighted to spend the time and effort necessary to “search the scriptures daily” (and the heavens nightly), to see, “whether those things were so.” (see Acts 17:11)

.

.

.

.

.

THE BIBLE ALREADY REVEALS THESE THINGS

.The Strait Gate is the Narrow Way and the broad way is the Wide Gate

.

And anyway, these signs are only revealing truths which the Bible already reveals. And so, even a blind person can prove all this by merely hearing God’s Word on audio.

.

Therefore, these, “signs in the sun, moon, and stars”, are an added blessing, merely putting an exclamation mark on what the Bible already says!

.

.

.

.

.

.

SATAN NOW MARSHALS HIS HELLISH HOST

.

But the bottom line is, as we see Satan marshaling his Antichrist world forces together in effort to make life impossible for Christians, it is becoming more and more clear just how we can escape all these things: by fleeing into that Narrow Gate which leads to life!

.

And God is allowing all this to drive His people into the Narrow Gate, for safety!

IDOLS WON’T FIT THROUGH NARROW GATE!

.

two doors- narrow gate & wide gate

.

And this heavenly sign lets us know for a certainty that we must cast away all our earthly idols, “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

.

Yes, all those earthly idols belong over in the Broad Way, and will not fit through the Narrow Gate.

.

But those who are willing to forsake all, will fit through that Narrow Gate, only to find a safe refuge and a peaceful hiding place from the approaching storm!

FROM WHERE & TO WHERE DOES SHE FLEE?

.

WOMAN ROTATES THROUGH THE SEASONS…

.

.

This page is about the Big Dipper, also called the Great Bear constellation (Ursa Major ). However, the ancient pagan cultures did not see this constellation as God intended it to be seen. It is actually a headless woman in childbirth.  This is seen in springtime. It is seen in the northern skies. 

.

But as the seasons progress, this travailing woman flips upside down, now appearing as a woman with upraised arms like eagle wings who is running (eventually flying, as shown in sketch on right) into the wilderness (westward). The single star representing her birth-child (Christ) now becomes her head (“Christ is the head of the church.” Ephesians 5:23

.

.

 

The 7 Stars (Big Dipper) is easy to see with its very bright 7 stars. But the Revelation 12 Woman (Ursa Major) must be seen on a dark starry night, away from city lights. 

.

These are star charts from Wikipedia, with sketches of the Woman added.
