And The Nations Were Angry! Part 2: “Summer of Love, Winter of Hate!”

To read Part 1, go here…October 24th (And The Nations Were Angry!)

“And the nations were angry, and Thy wrath is come,

.

and the time of the dead, that they should be judged,

.

and that thou shouldest give reward unto Thy servants the prophets,

.

and to the saints, and them that fear Thy name, small and great; and shouldest destroy them which destroy the earth.
.

And the temple of God was opened in heaven, and there was seen in His temple the Ark of His testament…”

Revelation 11:18, 19

“I think it’s so groovy now
That people are finally getting together!
I thinks it’s wonderful and how
That people are finally getting together!”

Can you believe it? At the writing of this devotional (2017), it has been exactly 50 years since the Summer of Love in San Francisco!

.

Remember that?

.

Well, most people were born in the years following that notable event. But it was a real effort by a young generation to engage in brotherly love at a time when America was at war.

.

Everything was peace and love!

.

Flowers were given as a symbol of peace and love!

“LOVE SHMOVE!”

Well, it wasn’t long until that movement went the way of almost every movement.

.

And the world returned back to its normal push-and-shove ways, now even more skeptical of any so-called, “peace and love” rhetoric.

50th ANNIVERSARY OF “LOVE”

.

But that “Summer of ‘Love'” all happened 50 years ago in 1967.

.

So here we are 50 years later in 2017, celebrating the fiftieth anniversary of that “magical” summer of “love”.

But look at what we’ve been seeing the last six months!

.

Yes, what we are now witnessing in 2017 is a whole lot of hatred and intolerance!

“THE SEA (OF HUMANITY) AND THE WAVES (OF HUMAN REASON & STRIFE) ROARING”

Luke 21:25 (parenthetical comments by this editor)

.

Isn’t it truly amazing to behold all the acts of pure hatred which have been occurring on a daily basis around the world: daily angry protests, enraged verbal attacks, name-calling, threats of violence, actual acts of violence, mob bullying and violence, beheadings, racism, bigotry, and bias by various ethnic groups against one-another, unjust and oppressive laws, forced political indoctrination in the school systems, kidnappings, drug cartel violence, and many other similar violent acts are now “the new norm”?

.

And here is just another proof that the Bible is the prophetic Word of Truth, since it correctly foretold of the world’s condition in these last moments of time just prior to God’s final judgment!

“AND THE NATIONS WERE ANGRY”

.

Listen to this prophecy concerning the very day we are now living https://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:Anti-Christian_sign_in_Federal_Plaza_Chicago.jpgin…“And the nations were angry, and Thy wrath is come,” Revelation 11:18

.

As we nervously look around at all the mob anger and violence now occurring in every direction, this above verse seems to be finding its fulfillment.

.

The nations are indeed angry! Hatred is growing! Various religions are getting more and more aggressive! Various ideologies are getting more demanding! Various ethnic groups are getting more racist! Intolerance between individuals as well as governments is causing increasing retaliatory violence!

THE “YEAR OF HATE”?

.

https://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:Anti_Trump_Protests_in_Baltimore_(30909224045).jpgAnd on this 50 year anniversary of that infamous, “Summer of Love” celebration, it could truly be said that this past winter might aptly be named, “The Winter of Hate”.

.

And if this climate of political/ethnic/social/religious rage continues, the entire year might be named, “The Year of Hate”.

“AND A MAN SHALL BE AS AN HIDING PLACE”

Isaiah 32:2

.

But today’s devotional, while shining the spotlight on the tragic condition of today’s world would also like to reveal the way of escape from all this insane hatred.

.http://www.muskegonartmuseum.org/collections-gallery/gallery

Yes, there is a way of escape, which is found in Isaiah 26:20, 21…“Come, My people, enter thou into thy chambers, and shut thy doors about thee: hide thyself as it were for a little moment, until the indignation be overpast. For, behold, the LORD cometh out of His place to punish the inhabitants of the earth for their iniquity: the earth also shall disclose her blood, and shall no more cover her slain.”

.

Yes, as this above verse reveals, there is, “a hiding place from the wind, and a covert from the tempest;” Isaiah 32:30.

“IN THAT DAY…WHEN HE ARISES TO SHAKE TERRIBLY THE EARTH”

Isaiah 2:21, 22

.

.http://www.muskegonartmuseum.org/collections-gallery/gallery

And it now appears as if the Lord has come out of His place “to punish the inhabitants of the earth for our iniquity:”

.

Listen again to today’s signature verse from Revelation 11:18, 19: “And the nations were angry, and Thy wrath is come, and the time of the dead, that they should be judged, and that thou shouldest give reward unto Thy servants the prophets, and to the saints, and them that fear Thy name, small and great; and shouldest destroy them which destroy the earth.”

.

So here is revealed that this very day of anger in which we now find ourselves, is the time when God has arisen out of His place to punish the world.

.

And so, if ever there was a time to take refuge from this great day of trouble which is now upon us, it is now!

.

.

.

.

.

“For in the time of trouble He shall hide me in His pavilion:

in the secret of His tabernacle shall He hide me;

He shall set me up upon a Rock.

And now shall mine head be lifted up

above mine enemies round about me:

therefore will I offer in His tabernacle sacrifices of joy;

I will sing, yea, I will sing praises unto the LORD.”

Psalm 27:5, 6

THE ARK IN THE HEAVENS

.Two Turtledoves birds & Flower Of The Field Constellations

So what importance to us is all this information? Well, if a person goes out at night, beginning in April (earlier in southern-most latitudes, and later in northern-most), in the pre-dawn hour, they just might locate the constellation commonly referred to as the Sagittarius Constellation . It is located in the southern sky. (Each night it appears a little earlier, slowly inching westward, through the summer, until it finally disappears below the western horizon in November.)

.Ark of the Covenant Constellation

At first, it simply appears as two twin birds flying westward. But if you look once again, it just might appear as a long box-like figure, with one star on the right, as you face it, and two stars on the left. The box, of course would be the Ark, and the stars on either side would represent angels, which are sometimes referred to as stars in the Bible (for instance, “the seven stars are the angels…” Revelation 1:20). To the right is a star-chart from Wikipedia, in which the editor of this site has sketched in this Sagittarius Constellation, to show how God created it to appear.
