Television & The Image That Speaks, Part 4: “Television, The Irresistible Image-Maker”

“And for this cause God shall send them strong delusion,

that they should believe a lie:

That they all might be damned who believed not the truth,

but had pleasure in unrighteousness.”

2nd Thessalonians 2:11, 12

 

.

.

.

.

This above verse foretells of a day in which God will send strong delusion to those who have not received the love of the truth.

.

Of course, the apostate portion of the Church has always been subject to strong delusion.

.

Because, “the (Antichrist) spirit that now works in the children of disobedience”, is the very essence of strong delusion. (see Ephesians 2:2)

THE OVERWHELMING POWER OF TELEVISION

.

And yet, in these last moments of time, the Bible forewarns of an image that the entire world bows down to, and worships.

.

And as never before in history, this image has the ability to speak!

.

You see, we are living in that very day. And there is no fulfillment to that long-promised talking-image as great as television (and other high-tech devices).

.

And especially when one considers that the very name, “tele-vision” seems to fulfill a “talking image”, foretold in Revelation 13.

.

.

.

.

.

GETTING MORE POWERFUL!

.

But this website has shared many articles about the effects of television and Internet.http://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:TV_highquality.jpg

.

And yet, today’s devotion is concerned with the ever-growing hypnotic power of this talking image-maker, called television (and Internet).

.

Right now, the “god of this world” has sharpened and perfected the productions which are sent around the world via these high-tech devices.

.

And to be honest, they are often so well-refined, that they can hold audiences spell-bound, especially young audiences!

CARTOONSTV indoctrination

.

Even the cartoons are getting so incredibly powerful, that children are mostly helpless to resist the overwhelming influence of Satan’s mesmerizing prowess, via these productions!

.

WHAT CAN WE DO?

.

So what are we going to do? 

.

What are we going to do for ourselves, but also for the souls of our children?

.

Are we going to allow, “the god of this world”, to continue to mesmerize us and our children into the image forewarned of in Revelation 13?

.

.

.

.

.

.

LIGHTING, MUSIC, STORY-LINES…AND HIDDEN AGENDA

.

Right now, the power of these productions is profound, with their incredible and colorful lighting, their enchanting and exciting music, their masterful story-lines, and their well-disguised indoctrination into this Anti-Christ world system!

HEAVENLY ROLE-MODELS or HELLISH ROLE MODELS?

.

As most everyone in the Christian community understands, the Bible uses not only Jesus, but mere mortals, such as Paul, to be role-models for Christians to admire and emulate.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:Poster_-_Gone_With_the_Wind_01.jpg.

But Lucifer, now called Satan fully understand this, and has given us his own role-models, for us to conform to. And now, with the advent of television, radio, the printed page, and high-tech devices, like never before this Master-Destroyer has perfected his mind-control machinery in which to conform the world into his own selfish image!

.http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:Super_Bowl_XLIII_-_Thunderbirds_Flyover_-_Feb_1_2009.jpg

And so, the many ‘superstars’ seen and adored by the lost multitudes on a daily basis, become firmly etched upon the tables of the human hearts of all those adoring fans of these ‘ministers of (Satan’s counterfeit) righteousness’!

.

And as a result, they eventually begin to emulate them in their own personal daily lives!

SATAN’S CHARACTER TRANSFERRED

.

This is the essence of the image of the beast, which, by the way, is the very image of the Dragon, Satan.

.

Oh yes, don’t be fooled by the “good and moral message” often presented in these productions.

.

Because, mingled within are the very qualities of Satan: lust, sensual music, anger, “foolish talk & jesting”, revenge, greed, commonness, unholiness, impatience, materialism, pride, and other similar qualities.

TOO POWERFUL TO RESIST!http://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/commons/3/38/Tissot_Habakkuk.jpg

.

But the main point of today’s devotional is that these productions are ever-increasingly powerful: too powerful for most people to resist, especially the young!

.

And with each passing day, these productions are getting even more powerful than the previous day!

.

This is one reason why Habakkuk the Prophet warns Christians living in these last days to, “RUN!”

HABAKKUK SAYS, “RUN!”http://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:Genesis19-17.jpg

.

Yes, the Book of Habakkuk was written especially for this very day, in which the Lord commands us…“And the LORD answered me, and said, Write the vision (of unbelievers surrounding God’s people), and make it plain upon tables, that he may run that readeth it. For the vision is yet for an appointed time, but at the end it shall speak, and not lie: though it tarry, wait for it; because it will surely come, it will not tarry.” Habakkuk 2:2, 3

OVERWHELMING INFLUENCEhttp://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:Berlin-neukoelln_satellite-dishes_20050314_p1010596.jpg

.

Yes, the Book of Habakkuk foretells of the day when, “the law is slacked, and judgment doth never go forth: for the wicked doth compass about the righteous; therefore wrong judgment proceedeth.” Habakkuk 1:4

.

As this above verse foretells, the day is coming (and now is), when God’s people will be so overwhelmed by the corrupting power and influence of this unbelieving world, that they are commanded to flee!

“COME OUT OF HER, MY PEOPLE!”

.

Of course, this is a parallel message to Revelation 18:4…“And I heard anotherhttp://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:Tissot_The_Flight_of_the_Prisoners.jpg voice from heaven, saying, Come out of her, My people, that ye be not partakers of her sins, and that ye receive not of her plagues.”

.

Here is the very same call: to make the end-time exodus out of Babylon (the world & the world-loving apostate churches).

.

And so, because of the overwhelming power of today’s high-tech devices, God’s people are commanded to “RUN!”, as it says in Habakkuk, and to “Come out of her (spiritual Babylon), My people!”, as it says in Revelation 18:4.

Of course, this website is literally teeming with articles on how and where we must flee.

.

And the reader is highly encouraged to join this end-time exodus.

TODAY’S FEATURED HEAVENLY SIGN

WINTER CONSTELLATIONS

.

foursome late winter 8/29/11

.

This most amazing phenomenon is seen throughout the winter. Although it can be observed most of the winter, it is seen best when it is the western part of the sky, at winter’s end (The end of winter being the final scene of this heavenly Gospel story). Orion , the Dragon, and the Glorious White Horse are beginning to descend into the western horizon (sketch to right is Winter Constellations descending into western horizon. This can actually be seen as early as December, in the pre-dawn hours).

.

And at this point it is apparent that the Fleeing Woman of Revelation 12 Constellation is veering toward the two bright stars, known as Castor and Pollux (sketch to left). But the Wide Gate Stars are composed of the two brightest stars of the Auriga Constellation, known as the star, Capella, and the star, Menkalinan. The two stars, Castor and Pollux, make up the concept of the Orion’s Narrow Gate Stars.

Revelation 12 Woman & Orion's Gate & Wide Gate.

This can even be observed into June in the western sky (for a short time just after dark). While a dark night is best for seeing the Woman Constellation, the 4 stars which comprise the Narrow Gate/Wide Gate Stars can be seen even under mediocre conditions. It begins with the Fleeing Woman of Revelation 12 Constellation (AKA Ursa Major) going towards these two doors.

.

The sketch to left shows, the two doors are each composed of two bright stars. The two bright stars that comprise the Narrow Gate are the two brightest stars of the Orion the Reaper’s sickle. The two stars that comprise the ‘Wide Gate’ Stars are the two brightest stars of the wave of water that comes out of the Dragon Constellation’s mouth (for explanation of “Wave of Water”, just click here). The stars that make up the ‘Narrow Gate’ are about half the width of the Wide Gate (see sketch below left).

.

.

Editor’s note: These sketches on this page are merely sketches. The stars are not in their exact place. However, they are close enough to find them in the night sky. But as with most stars, it takes persistence to finally locate them.
