Eternal Torment? Part 30: “He…Preached To The Spirits In Prison”

“For Christ…quickened by the Spirit:

By which also He went and preached

unto the spirits in prison;

Which sometime were disobedient,

when once the longsuffering of God

waited in the days of Noah,

while the ark was a preparing,

wherein few, that is,

eight souls were saved by water.”

1st Peter 3:18-20

.

.

.

.

.

Back in the Dark Ages of Europe, the apostate and corrupt churches began to embrace the false doctrine that God has some fiery subterranean chamber of horrors in which He mercilessly torments forever, all those who rejected the call to Salvation.

.

Of course, this doctrine has no true Biblical validation, but is based on some really sloppy Bible interpretation by that same tyrannical church of the Dark Ages (which church denomination, by the way, tortured and tormented their own detractors: Christians who rejected that apostate church denomination were often tortured, burned to death, and/or imprisoned in cruel holds.)

“THERE SHALL BE SIGNS IN THE SUN…MOON AND…STARS”

Luke 21:25

.www.theheavensdeclare.net

But long, long ago, in the beginning, our infinitely wise God had already configured the stars in such a way that the Gospel was displayed in pictures, via, the great constellations!

.

And one of the most infamous constellations is the Revelation 12 Dragon, as it seemingly spews out a wave of water, just as it is written…“And there appeared another wonder in heaven; and behold a great red dragon…And the serpent cast out of his mouth water as a flood after the woman (the Church), that he might cause her to be carried away of the flood.” Revelation 12:3, 15

7 STARS OF WAVE-OF-WATER = DRAGON’S 7 HEADS

.Dragon of Revelation 12 Constellation

Now just what does this amazing Revelation 12 Dragon Constellation have to do with today’s devotional?

.

Well, if the Reader will carefully examine the wave of water being spewed out of the mouth of this Dragon, there are  7 primary stars which this wave is comprised of (there are also 3 more, less bright stars, #8, #9, #10, which comprise the very tip of the crest of this wave).

.

This wave of water with 7 stars coincides with the 7 heads of the Antichrist beast.

MULTI-FACETED BEAST REPRESENTING SATAN’S KINGDOM

.

http://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:Burgkmair_whore_babylon_color.jpgNow, as Revelation 17:9, 10 informs us concerning the Antichrist Beast…“And here is the mind which hath wisdom. The seven heads (of the Beast) are seven mountains, on which the woman sitteth. And there are seven kings: five are fallen, and one is, and the other is not yet come; and when he cometh, he must continue a short space.”

.

And so, from this above passage it becomes clear that this Revelation 12 Dragon is actually a spiritual and allegorical picture of Satan’s kingdom. And these 7 heads are 7 mountains on which the woman (the apostate church) sits upon. But these 7 heads are also 7 kings. In other words, it is speaking of kings and kingdoms (mountains).

7 STARS of THIS WAVE = 7 HEADS = 7 MOUNTAINS = 7 KINGDOMS

.

Now before this little devotional gets too complex, let it merely be stated that the 5th star of this wave constellation represents the 5th head of the Dragon. And without a complicated and detailed explanation, let it suffice for now to be said that the 5th head (and the 5th star) represents the 5th kingdom which has ruled over God’s people.

.

And that kingdom was the apostate churches of Europe during the Dark Ages.

.

Well, there are a number of articles on this website concerning this phenomenon.

.

.

.

.

.

But let’s move on to what all this has to do with the heretical false doctrine commonly referred to as “Eternal Torment”.

.

Yes, it was this 5th head of Antichrist that actually represented the fallen churches of Europe during those bloody centuries of persecution against God’s chosen and faithful remnant people.

2ND PETER 3:18-20

.

But today’s devotional will focus on just one particular aspect of that false church.

.

Listen to 1st Peter 3:18-20…

.

“For Christ…quickened by the Spirit:

By which also He went and preached

unto the spirits in prison;

Which sometime were disobedient,

when once the longsuffering of God

waited in the days of Noah,

while the ark was a preparing,

wherein few, that is,

eight souls were saved by water.”

1st Peter 3:18-20

.

This above passage is one of the most mis-interpreted passages in the Bible by those faulty and apostate theologians of that time period.

.

.

.

.

.

PRISON-HOUSE OF SIN

.

When Peter mentions, “spirits in prison”, the apostate church of Europe during the Dark Ages took this to be speaking of some underground chamber of horrors.

.https://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:Addiction_is_life_jail.jpg

But nothing could be further from the truth! Peter was merely referring to the Spirit of Christ who preached the Gospel of Christ to those who lived before the time of the Cross.

.

And the prison spoken of in 1st Peter refers to the prison-house of sin that we all lived in prior to our salvation…“In meekness instructing those that oppose themselves; if God peradventure will give them repentance to the acknowledging of the truth; And that they may recover themselves out of the snare of the devil, who are taken captive by him at his will.” 2nd Timothy 2:25, 26

.

Here is revealed that those who are lost, spiritually speaking are actually captives and prisoners of the Devil! But God reassures us in 1st Peter, that Christ, via the Holy Spirit, preached the Good News even as far back as the pre-flood era!

.

.

.

.

.

.

ENDLESS ROASTING IN HELL?

.

And let’s not get the crazy idea that when Christ went to the grave for three days/nights that He preached the Gospel to those who were being hopelessly roasted for thousands of years.

.

Such false doctrines as this are the most mindless nonsense, and are still being preached in the apostate church-world, even to this very day!

Revelation 18:4

.

Well, here is just one more reason to join the end-time exodus out of spiritual Babylon, in which God’s remnant people are finding an abundance of heavenly bread and spiritual waters upon every high hill and mountain in this very day in which the towers (churches) have fallen! (see Isaiah 30:25 and 33:16)

LOCATION of THE WAVE OF WATER CONSTELLATION…

winter four constellations

.

The Wave Constellation is primarily comprised of the Auriga Constellation plus one star from Taurus, plus one more star. The Winter Constellations are depicted in this below sketch to the right, and shows this constellation group as they are seen in early winter, as they rise in the eastern skies. The Woman is in the north. The Dragon and Orion are farther south from the Woman.

.

WINTER CONSTELLATIONS-SEEN IN FALL: This sketch to the right is how this constellation group appears in the eastern sky in fall. This is the four primary constellations of the Winter Constellations. They can be seen in this position, in the late fall above the eastern horizon. The Woman of Revelation 12 is commonly called Ursa Major or The Big Dipper and appears in the north. Orion the Soldier is the at the bottom is to the south of the Woman. The The Dragon of Revelation Constellation’s mouth isThe Hyades Cluster, and the tip of his tail is Pleiades, and his Wave of Water is primarily the Auriga constellation. The Glorious Horse Constellation  head is of Perseus Constellation and his rear end is Cassiopeia Constellation.

(Editor’s note: It is impossible to make this chart accurate, and visually correct, because the dome effect of the sky makes these constellations look different than they appear when placed on flat paper.)

 FLOOD WATERS…

.

.

No matter where this constellation is in the night sky, this wave of water is always going towards the path of the Woman of Revelation 12 (Flees to the Wilderness). This wave of water is made of the Auriga Constellation plus two fainter stars closer to the Dragon’s mouth. Let’s see what Scripture has to say about flood waters.  

.

“And the serpent cast out of his mouth WATER AS A FLOOD after the woman, that he might cause her to be carried away of the flood..” Revelation 12:12.

www.theheavensdeclare.net

.

So what do these flood waters represent?  Does the Bible have anything to say about Satan’s flood-waters?

LOCATING THE DRAGON

.

THE DRAGON of REVELATION 12 CONSTELLATION . The Dragon Constellation can be located by finding Orion in winter months. The Dragon is to Orion’s left, and the Dragon’s mouth is right next to Orion’s shield. This Dragon’s mouth is the V-like constellation The Hyades Cluster, which is the very same constellation that comprises the head of Taurus the Bull. In other words, Hyades is also known as the head of Taurus the Bull. And Hyades is the mouth of this Dragon.

.

Revelation 12 Dragon w/text

.

The tip of the Dragon’s tail is composed of that star-cluster known as The Pleiades. The Pleiades is actually in the shape of a lion’s furry tassel tip of his tail. The sketch below shows this Pleiades as the tail tip.

.

Now with aid of a dark starry night, you may begin to connect this mouth and the tail with a very long body in an oval shape. The front and back legs are very well-defined with stars. The front legs are made partially of Taurus. The back legs and rear fin are made of the Cetus Constellation. But the long oval-shaped body has relatively few stars, but can been seen, howbeit with a dark starry night. The four stars of the front fins are made partially of Taurus. This Dragon constellation appears in the eastern horizon about mid-summer in the pre-dawn hours, spewing his flood-waters northward toward the Woman of Revelation 12 (Woman in Travail). The Wave of Water is primarily composed of the Constellation Auriga. The are two more less bright stars which are closest to the Dragon’s mouth. These two dimmer stars are also part of this Wave of Water.
