God originally created this world to be a place of beauty and joy.

.

The curse had not yet fallen upon the cosmos (the world).

.

Everything was good and wholesome!

PARADISE LOST!

.

But then, as we all know, Lucifer, the great rebel from Heaven moved into this world and brought his long train of woe and misery along with him, turning this world into a world of destruction and death.

A COMPLETE MAKE-OVER!

.

.

But in these last days, in his role as the 2nd Beast of Revelation 13 (The False Prophet), this master deceiver has been granted the ability to really dress up this decrepit world to the point that many people, especially the young, are totally deceived into thinking this world is a pretty nice place for the most part.

A STATE-OF-THE-ART WORLD

.

Yes, “the god of this world”, Lucifer, now given the office of “Satan”, is giving this world a make-over of all make-overs! 

.

And he uses the “sons of men” (the unsaved peoples of this fallen world) to construct glamorous cities with grand houses and buildings and parks and shopping malls, restaurants, pleasure resorts, cars, boats, and planes, and every conceivable luxury and convenience to make life as pleasurable as possible!

.

Yes, it’s a theme-park world to a great extent!

SATAN’S ADVERTISER-IN-CHIEF!

.

And to complete his deception, Satan has created this world to be a high-tech society.

.TV indoctrination

Utilizing television, radio, Internet, and even books and magazines, etc., Satan now employs these media to be his “advertiser-in-chief”, so to speak. Thus, these various media are constantly promoting this world to be a nice and happy place.

.

And anything evil and wrong, “We’re gonna fix it!”

.

But the fact is, behind this thin veneer of goodness, lies a world still suffering as greatly as it always has!

.

.

.

.

LOOK BEYOND THE GLOSSY VENEER

.

http://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:ISIL_Execution_of_man_September_2014.jpgThere is so much woe and misery and tragedy going on all around us, it is impossible to enumerate everything wrong.

.

Just look around! Just look beyond the thin glossy veneer, and behold all the death and destruction! Even young people witness their friends getting hooked on drugs and alcohol and tobacco!

.

Read the daily papers and count the senseless murders and horrific rapes!

.

Behold the death, murder, and misery by the various religions!

.

Watch the nightly news and behold all the thefts and kidnappings and injustices going on around the world!

Listen to the radio talk shows and hear about the corruption in government!

.

See the horrible statistics about disease and illness which comes on the multitudes as a thief and steals away all joy from a person’s life!

“THE DAY OF THE LORD…UPON ALL PLEASANT PICTURES!”

Isaiah 2:12, 16

.

And yet, in his role as The False Prophet, Satan attempts to paint his, “pleasant http://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:Handshake_icon_GREEN-BLUE.svgpictures” of a pretty nice world!

.

As we watch various television programs, so many of them attempt to convince us that it won’t be long until humanity will be soon be holding hands and singing “Kumbaya” all together in perfect harmony!

.

This is the great cosmic cover-up!

“HEARTS OVERCHARGED WITH EATING, DRINKING, AND CARES OF THIS LIFE!”

Luke 21:34

.

Now in addition to painting this false, glossy portrayal of this tragic world, Satanhttps://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:Every_day.jpg makes sure that everyone stays as busy as possible, going after every pleasure and ambitious pursuit this opulent society offers.

.

And in our busy-ness, we don’t have time to stop and consider that we are like naive lambs going to our day of slaughter in this, Satan’s slaughter-house world!

.

Yes, Satan is working tirelessly to keep us so busy pursuing the cares and pleasures and his devilish delusions of this “wonderful theme-park world”.

.

He does this so that we will finally arrive at our appointed day of death, just as surely as those sheep who unknowingly walk into that meat-grinder which awaits them just around the corner!

 A FLICKER OF LIGHT!

.

Well, is there even a flicker of light in all this dark report?

.

Yes, for any person who has ears to hear, there is a way of escape from the death-sentence which is all but guaranteed in this hopeless world of death, disease, and destruction!

Jesus says to us…“I am the resurrection, and the life: he that believeth in Me, though he were dead, yet shall he live: And whosoever liveth and believeth in Me shall never die. Believest thou this?” John 11:25, 26

.

Yes, Jesus offers everlasting life in the New Heaven & New Earth in which all sorrow and mourning and crying and death shall be forever vanquished!

TODAY’S FEATURED HEAVENLY SIGN

.

.

REVELATION 12 WRITTEN IN HEAVEN

.

“And there appeared a great wonder (or sign) in heaven; a woman…And there appeared another wonder (sign) in heaven; and behold a great red dragon, having seven heads and ten horns, and seven crowns upon his heads…And the woman fled into the wilderness, where she hath a place prepared of God…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 12:1, 3, 6, 15

.

Here is a sketch of this Fleeing Woman of Revelation 12. This is the Winter Constellations of Signs Of Heaven. Besides Orion and his Horse, we also see pictured in this sketch, the Dragon of Revelation 12.

winter four constellations

.

This Revelation 12 Woman Constellation is fleeing. As you can see, the Dragon Constellation is spewing a flood of water in her direction, as is written… “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 12:15. This wave of water represents Satan’s lies, and his false teachers who tell those lies.

.

GOD’S MESSAGE: FLEE!!

.

Beholding the Fleeing Woman of Revelation 12 Constellation in winter, it seems that God is trying to get a very important message across to His people: that His Church is to flee! But what are they to flee from? Well, you can go to the article titled “The Fleeing Woman of Revelation 12 Constellation”

.

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.
