Apocalypse NOW! Part 21: “It’s A Titanic World!”

To read the first part of this topic, go here…AUGUST 3 (Apocalypse Now! Part 1: Silencing the Gospel!)

.

.

.

.

“And because iniquity shall abound,

the love of many shall wax cold.”

Matthew 24:12

.

One of the most shocking events in modern history was the sinking of the mighty ship, The Titanic!

.

Several movies have been made about that great tragedy, plus numerous books.

.

It was such an unthinkable catastrophe, still commonly spoken of even to this day!

THE METAPHOR SINKS

.

http://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:St%C3%B6wer_Titanic_(colourized).jpgAnd what made it even more bizarre was, just prior to its fateful maiden voyage in 1915, many claimed that the Titanic was, “The unsinkable ship!” 

.

It is even reported that one crew-member boldly exclaimed, “God Himself couldn’t sink that ship!”

.

But on the next day after the ship had struck the iceberg and sank, one newspaper headline curiously read, “Metaphor sinks!”

.

.

.

.

.

.

.

.

AN UNSINKABLE WORLD?

.

And indeed, the Titanic was and is a fitting metaphor for this Titanic world!

.

Yes, through the centuries, as this work-a-day world has been going busily about its day-by-day routine, the great multitudes have long held the notion that “tomorrow shall be as this day, and much more abundant.” Isaiah 56:2

.

This world seemed unsinkable!

.

.

.

.

.

SIGNS OF THE TIMES ARE EVERYWHERE!

.

But it is now in our day that humanity is getting nervous!

.

Because ever since that fateful day in 1915, the world has been steadily edging closer and closer to the precipice of destruction!

.

Two world wars, the invention of nuclear bombs, incurable disease, the embracing of Sodom’s sin, and other previously unheard of calamities are making a whole lot of people very nervous.

.

ANOTHER UNCANNY SIMILARITY!

.

But there is another uncanny similarity between the Titanic ship and this Titanic World which only further confirms the metaphoric nature of these two titans!

.

And what similarity could that possibly be?

.

Yes, the Titanic was brought down by an iceberg.

“HAIL…RESERVED AGAINST THE TIME OF TROUBLE”

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

Now what possible connection could that iceberg have to this world’s demise?

.

Listen…“Hast thou seen the treasures of the hail, Which I have reserved against the time of trouble, against the day of battle and war?” Job 38:22, 23

.

Oh no, this above verse is not speaking of an iceberg.

.

But it is indeed speaking of God’s judgment of ice upon this world in the last days!

THE SEVENTH PLAGUE

.

.

Listen again, as God speaks about hail in the Book of Revelation…“And there fell upon men a great hail out of heaven, every stone about the weight of a talent: and men blasphemed God because of the plague of the hail; for the plague thereof was exceeding great.” Revelation 16:21

.

This is the very last plague to fall upon the earth in the last days!

“THEREFORE SPEAK I UNTO THEM IN PARABLES”

Matthew 13:13

http://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:Holy_bible.jpg.

But what must be understood is this: the Bible is a book of metaphors.

.

And to rightly interpret the thousands of metaphors in the Bible requires much study, “comparing spiritual things with spiritual.” 1st Corinthians 2:13

HAIL IS A METAPHOR

.https://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:The_plague_of_hail_and_thunder._Coloured_etching._Wellcome_V0010565.jpg

The hail spoken of the Bible is to be understood metaphorically!

.

Listen…“Judgment also will I lay to the line, and righteousness to the plummet: and the hail shall sweep away the refuge of lies” Isaiah 28:17

.

Obviously literal hail cannot “sweep away the refuge of lies”, as it prophesies in Isaiah!

.

And just as water is often used in Scripture as a metaphor of “grace”, so too, hail has its own spiritual meaning!

MANKIND’S LOVE WAXES COLD

.

Listen to another prophecy which Jesus made, concerning these days…“And because iniquity shall abound, the love of many shall wax cold. But he that shall endure unto the end, the same shall be saved.” Matthew 24:12, 13

.

Is this prophecy finding any fulfillment today?

.

Are we seeing iniquity abounding?

.

Are we seeing humanity’s love waxing cold?

GROWING HATRED AND INTOLERANCE

.

Just look around!

.

Read the newspapers! Watch the television! Everywhere we look, it seems that humanity is getting more and more intolerant of each othhttps://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:Anti-Christian_sign_in_Federal_Plaza_Chicago.jpger!

.

Just look at the political world!

.

There is so much hatred in today’s politics, that the various news agencies twist the facts in the daily news stories just to make their political foes appear even more evil than they really are!

.

Political protests are happening on a daily basis with hate-filled chants shouted by angry throngs, ready to beat anyone who might get in their way!

.

And some political leaders are even calling for the death of their enemies!

MOTHER BEHEADED ON MOTHER’S DAY!

.

Several men ruthlessly murdered their own mothers on Mother’s Day this year!

.

One of those men actually carried his mother’s severed head into an Oregon grocery store, stabbing one of the employees!

VIOLENCE NOW FILMED FOR THE INTERNET!http://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:ISIL_Execution_of_man_September_2014.jpg

Beheadings and other violent deeds are now shown on YouTube on a regular basis!

THE NATIONS ARE NOW ANGRY!

http://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:Millions_of_protestors_in_Tahrir_Square.jpg

.

Listen to this next prophecy concerning the Day of Judgment…“And the nations were angry, and Thy (God’s) wrath is come…” Revelation 11:18

.

This isn’t speaking of some distant time in the future! It’s happening right now!

.

The nations are indeed angry! Rogue religions are now forcing their beliefs upon the formerly Christian Reformation nations!

.

This Titanic world seems to have struck an iceberg of icy cold hatred!

Well this little devotional doesn’t have time to expand on this description of the icy indifference and growing hatred which is abounding on a daily basis.

“ALL ABOARD!”

.

In spite of the growing hatred and intolerance now seen just about everywhere, is there any Good News in this sad and tragic world?

.

Yes, even though this world has been struck by the iceberg of man’s intolerant hatred for others, there is a way of escape! 

.

Sadly, only one-third of the Titanic’s passengers were saved.

.

But the lifeboat that God has provided is big enough to rescue any and every last man, woman, and child on this sinking planet.

.

Yes, unlike the insufficient lifeboats of the Titanic back in 1915, nobody should think that God’s lifeboat is too small for all to come aboard to be saved!

.

That’s very Good News!

.

So come aboard and be saved and live forever!

LOCATING THIS CONSTELLATION GROUP…

.

“Come, and let us go up to the mountain of the LORD, and to the house of the God of Jacob; and He will teach us of His ways, and we will walk in His paths: for the law shall go forth of Zion, and the word of the LORD from Jerusalem.” Micah 4:1, 2

Valley of Decision + O Destroying Mountain Constellation Group

.

Look eastward in the early summer through fall. Find the Cassiopeia Constellation. Cassiopeia is the Mount of Blessing. In the sketch, it is the farthest mountain to the left. In the sky, it is the northern-most of these three mountains when facing eastward. It resembles a pyramid.

.

Then find the second pyramid to its right (south).

.

Then go a little further south to the next third pyramid. The third snow-cap is the Destroying Mountain Constellation.

.

These three pyramids are the snow-capped portion of these three mountains in this sketch. (of course, you won’t see the snow-caps in the sky. They are just an embellishment in this sketch to present a concept-EDITOR).

.

 

Valley of Decision & O Destroying Mtn. Constellations

.

THE VALLEY OF DECISION CONSTELLATION GROUP. They appear in mid-summer in the eastern skies in pre-dawn hours. These are made of Cassiopeia (mount on left), and various stars from the Andromeda Constellation (valley) Pegasus (Mount of Cursing (middle mount) & Destroying Mount (right)), and Pisces (Broad Way to Hell). The galaxy which appears to be climbing the Mountain of Blessing is the Andromeda Galaxy

.

The above Wikipedia star-chart shows this amazing constellation group as it appears from June to fall, just prior to the winter constellation group. Actually, these Valley of Decision Constellations appear in early summer in the pre-dawn hours. (Editor of this website has sketched in this constellation group onto this above Wikipedia star-chart.)
