THREE FINGERS POINTING BACK

The Real Accusing Finger -www.signsofheaven.org-copyright 2011

.

God has designed nature to be functional.

.

But in His infinite wisdom, He has also designed nature to teach spiritual lessons. And the human hand is no exception! Beside being a marvel of functionality, the human hand teaches us lessons.

.

And even this unbelieving world sees the truth about finger-pointing.

.

And that lesson is, that when a person points the accusing finger at another, then there are three other fingers on his own hand, which point right back! This is a common saying in the world…“When you point your finger at another, there are three fingers pointing back at you!” Haven’t you heard this saying before?

GOD THREATENS US ABOUT JUDGING!

.

the accusing finger share-alike license www.signsofheaven.orgGod tells us plainly… “Therefore thou art inexcusable, O man, whosoever thou art that judgest: for wherein thou judgest another, thou condemnest thyself; for thou that judgest doest the same things.” Romans 2:1

.

With such an indictment as this above verse points out, how can we still point the accusing finger at others? Yes, whenever we point the accusing finger at somebody else, there are indeed, three fingers pointing back at us! And of course, the number “three” is the very number of the Godhead, the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit.

JUDGING ANOTHER’S HEART! NOT GOOD!

.

Ohhh, don’t we humans love to judge others!? It’s like falling off the proverbial log! It comes almost as naturally as breathing!

.

Whether at home, or in the field, or walking through the mall, we erring humans are constantly judging others!

.

.

.

.

.

.

WHAT ABOUT CHRISTIANS?

.

Now one would think that once we become Christians, all that judging would instantly go away! After all, now we are supposedly born again into the fellowship of God’s Holy Spirit!

.

And once we climb out of the baptismal pool, aren’t we now supposed to be safe and secure from the evil hand of Satan and his unseen evil-angelic armies!

So why do we still judge so easily?

Yes, why do Christians still judge others?

.

Well, simply put, Satan doesn’t just go away, once we find our names on Heaven’s roster! No, Satan will come at us any way he figures that he will find success in making us stumble and fall! And because Satan well understands how reprehensible to God is the sin of judging others, Satan will first attempt to get us begin judging others, even before tempting us in other types of sins.

“JUDGE NOT, AND YE SHALL NOT BE JUDGED!”

.

Listen…“Judge not, and ye shall not be judged: condemn not, and ye shall not be condemned: forgive, and ye shall be forgiven” Luke 6:37

.

Now if this verse doesn’t send chills through our soul, nothing will! It is a command with an implied threat! In other words, if we don’t want to be judged nor condemned by God, then we had better put away all judging of other people’s heart!

.

And even if we believe that it is our duty to blow the trumpet and declare the iniquity in God’s house, we should only do so in the spirit of great fear and trembling, knowing that we too have the same sins in our own heart!

.

.

“PRAY FOR THEM WHICH DESPITEFULLY USE YOU AND PERSECUTE YOU!”

Matthew 5:44

.

But today’s devotional would like to offer one little practical tip which might help during some temptation to judge another soul.

.

Whenever we catch ourselves judging somebody, try to begin to pray for that person’s Salvation. For example, when walking through a store, and I realize that I’m judging another customer or employee, I need to instantly begin quietly asking the Lord for that person’s Salvation! And hopefully, that might just bring my judging to a speedy end! And this same technique can hopefully be employed in every time and circumstance in which I find myself judging any other erring soul for whom Christ died.

.

Now, if I can only turn such a quick defense against the Devil’s wiles into a lifetime habit, I just might achieve victory over such this pernicious habit, thus driving away any demonic forces from my presence at that moment.

.

Well, it’s worth a try, isn’t it?

TODAY’S PRAYER…

.

“Dear Lord, Help me to crucify that “Old Man” within. Drive out the proud Pharisee which scorns others. Humble me. Break me. Crucify me with Christ! Set my feet upon a Rock. Make me to hear joy and gladness. Let my tongue sing aloud of Thy righteousness…

TODAY’S FEATURED HEAVENLY SIGN

.

.

“THE SCORNER (THE PHARISEE)”

.

Please tilt your head to the left. Do you see a man with a very long pointed nose. (Obviously, the sketch to the right is just an exaggeration in order to help you find the face in the photo to the left.)

.

Do you see an angry look? His right eye-brow is raised as if he is judging.

.

This second face in the Moon appears to be that of a combination of a man as well as a fox. Or maybe a wolf. Doesn’t he have a long narrow nose like a wolf or fox? Maybe even a dog. Nevertheless, the expression on his face, as he appears to look down upon the Earth, is that of scorn. Unlike the first Moon-man’s sad shock and awe; this ‘man/fox/wolf/dog’ appears to be that of anger and scorn. As if he is disgusted at the sinful planet below. He is very moral, you see.

.

THIS BEAST WITHIN

.the accusing finger share-alike license www.signsofheaven.org

Well, the Bible has much to say about Pharisees. And the Bible has much to say about wolves, and foxes, and dogs. And this wolf-face inscribed in the Moon has much to tell us about ourselves. So if you are a truth-seeker, then this article will be an eye-opener, as we explore just what the Bible has to say about these things. And the fact is, this Pharisee Moon-Beast is in the heart of each and every human. And so, if you (or me) find that this wolf-man has some things in common, please don’t despair. For God is giving us these signs, while there still is time. While there still is hope.

.

.

.

THE PHARISEES…

.

“Proud and haughty scorner is his name, who dealeth in proud wrath.” Prov. 21:24

.

Yes this wolf-like beast-face in the Moon, is what the Bible calls a proud Pharisee. They were the morality crowd. They were the finger pointers. They were the scorners. They didn’t realize that their own pride was even more reprehensible to God than the drunkenness, immorality, or sexual perversions of the unsaved of the world.
