How Do I See These Signs Of Heaven? Part 6: “Ye Must Be Born Again!”

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

.

.

.

.

.

“Open Thou mine eyes,

that I may behold wondrous

things out of Thy law.”

Psalm 119:18

.

.

.

.

.

The editor of this website was shown many, or perhaps most of these heavenly signs in a moment, not even looking for them.

.

It was truly the gift of God and not by any good work on the part of this very fallible and very weak human.

“YE MUST BE BORN AGAIN!”

John 3:7

.

But for anyone to truly see these signs, will most likely require what Jesus told Nicodemus by night…“Ye must be born again!” John 3:7

.

After all, Nicodemus was a ruler of the Jews! He held a high and prestigious office!

.

And yet, he had never truly become Born Again. He had never received a new heart. Oh yes, he was very moral. And his greeting to Jesus showed that he was well-polished in manners.

MANY TODAY, ARE LIKE NICODEMUS

.

Well, Nichttps://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:USMC-081218-M-4507D-001.jpgodemus represents many who likewise serve in the Church, but they too, have never received a new heart.

.

And without this new heart, they have no true Salvation.

.

Salvation is a supernatural experience. It is an all-encompassing Spirit in which the true Believer now sees all of life from a heavenly vantage point! No longer does that person think in terms of gaining the pleasures and proud, ambitious attainments of the world.

.

Oh yes, that Believer seeks to provide the wants and needs of his or her family. But now, through the grace of God, these duties are performed through the eyes of Jesus with the over-arching desire for their Salvation.

“BUT ASK NOW THE BEASTS, AND THEY SHALL TEACH THEE”

Job 12:7

.

Now what does all this have to do with seeing these signs written in the Sun, Moon, and stars? Very simple! When that man, woman, or child truly receives the Holy Spirit is when all nature begins to become our spiritual teachers, even as it is written… “For though ye have ten thousand instructors in Christ” 1st Corinthians 4:15

.

And along with this above verse, Psalm 19:1, 2 tells us…“The heavens declare the glory of God; and the firmament showeth His handiwork. Day unto day uttereth speech, and night unto night showeth knowledge.”

.

Yes, the heavens indeed declares the glory of God! And day unto day, the Sun enlightens the earth with His glory! And night unto night reveals the signs in the Moon and in the constellations!

.

.

.

.

.

.

“EXCEPT A MAN BE BORN AGAIN, HE CANNOT SEE THE KINGDOM OF GOD!”

John 3:3

http://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:25_Orionis_location.png.

And yet, without the indwelling Spirit of Christ it is virtually impossible to see all these things!

.

Oh yes, a person may see Orion as a sword-wielding soldier.

.

And that same person may also see The Seven Stars (aka The Big Dipper), as it pours out its contents even appearing as a three-dimensional Cross on a hill.

.

But to truly see this total message written in the heavens requires us to become Born Again.

“EXAMINE YOURSELVES, WHETHER YE BE IN THE FAITH”

2nd Corinthians 13:5

.http://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:USMC-06831.jpg

Now the very Good News is that this is still the day of Salvation. And each and every one of us should be crying out daily for God’s mercy and grace.

.

And don’t let the apostate church-leaders brow-beat you that it is some sort of denial of faith to cry out for God’s mercy! All such advice is unbiblical and merely Satanic rubbish!

“BE AFFLICTED, AND MOURN, AND WEEP…” 

.

If you or I perceive that we are still held in spiritual bondage to this world, we need to keep following the prescription for Salvation found in the New Testament Book of James until we achieve victory…

http://www.wikigallery.org/wiki/painting_198722/William-Brassey-Hole/The-sorrow-of-king-David

.

Listen…“Ye adulterers and adulteresses, know ye not that the friendship of the world is enmity with God? whosoever therefore will be a friend of the world is the enemy of God…Draw nigh to God, and He will draw nigh to you. Cleanse your hands, ye sinners; and purify your hearts, ye double minded. Be afflicted, and mourn, and weep: let your laughter be turned to mourning, and your joy to heaviness. Humble yourselves in the sight of the Lord, and He shall lift you up. ” James 4:4, 8-10

.

To the world, this above passage sounds like the kiss of death! But to those who long to win Jesus, this is a joyful duty, which should not be stopped until we achieve victory!

BEGIN WITH ORION AND THE 7 STARS

.

We may only begin to see Orion and the Big Dipper as they appear of this website.

.

But by continuing along the highway to Heaven, we may discover more of these heavenly signs.

“WE GLORY…KNOWING THAT TRIBULATION WORKETH PATIENCE”

James 5:3

.

https://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:Heinrich_Seufferheld_Betendes_Maedchen_opus_16,1_1893.pngYes, God wants us to learn patience. So don’t be surprised if these gifts don’t just come all at once.

.

God wants us to learn to trust Him even when we don’t have what we desire!

.

That’s what faith is all about…“Now faith is the substance of things hoped for…” Hebrews 11:1

.

Yes, this is what faith is all about: believing God’s promises even during the hard and difficult times when faith is all we have to hold on to!

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.

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).

.

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…

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

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

.

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.
