“Woe unto you,

when all men shall speak well of you!

for so did their fathers to the false prophets.”

A “holy” man was recently buried. And his burial was performed with great pomp and ceremony.

.

Heads of state and world leaders were eager to boast glowing remarks and utter high praises about this extremely popular evangelist.

“WOE…WHEN ALL MEN SHALL SPEAK WELL OF YOU!”

.

http://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:Avvakum_by_Myasoyedov.jpegNow of course, all this worldly praise for that “giant of faith”, obviously makes any Bible-savvy Christian rather nervous, especially when we have such warnings as our today’s signature verse…“Woe unto you, when all men shall speak well of you! for so did their fathers to the false prophets.” Luke 6:26

.

Here is just one of many verses which caution against the idea that the world will ever love us, especially if we are called to publicly proclaim the truth…“Marvel not, my brethren, if the world hate you.” 1st John 3:13

1ST & 2ND ANGEL’S MESSAGES

.

Two very much-despised and hated messengers of the Gospel were both Ellen White and Harold Camping.

.

As a matter of fact, Ellen White’s message was so maligned and misunderstood through the decades, that even Harold Camping, who came along years later, likewise scorned and criticized it.

THE WORLD HATED JESUS

.

This massive constellation is comprised of the various constellations on this websiteSo just what was wrong with this famous evangelist’s message that caused all the world to love him so?

.

After all, even the Gospel which Jesus preached, finally caused the world to crucify Him…“The world cannot hate you (speaking to His unsaved brethren); but Me it hateth, because I testify of it, that the works thereof are evil.” John 7:7

.

This message which caused the world to hate and finally destroy the Savior, is the very same message which both White and Camping preached: that this hopeless world is utterly deluged in wickedness!

.

And so, the world reacted to their messages with the same vilifying hatred which Jesus received in His day.

PROSPERITY-DRIVEN GOSPELS TODAY

.

But in today’s Christian community, there is a carefulness to avoid too much criticism of the world…“For the time will come when they will not endure sound doctrine; but after their own lusts shall they heap to themselves teachers, having itching ears;” 2nd Timothy 4:3

.

Here is foretold of a day in which parishioners will no longer tolerate the plain unvarnished truth.

.

Yes, the churches are filled with parishioners who love this present self-centered world more than they love Heaven. Thus they demand a gospel which doesn’t spend much time condemning this selfish world.

WORDS & LIFESTYLE PREACH DIFFERENT SERMONS

.

Now of course, one common deception of Satan is to preach two different sermons in today’s churches. While condemning the world in tongue only, many preachers and parishioners alike only praise the world by their world-loving lifestyles.

.

Thus, a mixed-message is sent out, thereby encouraging world-loving souls to come into the churches and denominations.

.

Now, of course, only God knows the eternal destiny of that famous evangelist who was recently laid to rest.

.

It is not our job to try to judge that matter, but instead pray for all those who are unknowingly deceiving God’s people with a watered-down gospel.

7 HEADS, 10 HORNS, & 7 CROWNS OF THE DRAGON

.

“And there appeared another wonder in heaven; and behold a great red dragon, having seven heads and ten horns, and seven crowns upon his heads.” Rev. 12:3 

.Dragon of Revelation 12 Constellation

In Revelation, the Dragon of Revelation 12 is described as having seven heads, ten horns, and seven crowns. However, the Dragon Constellation up in the night sky does not. But God has faithfully created the wave of water, in such a way, as to illustrate this same concept of the seven heads, ten horns, and seven crowns. Because this wave of water is basically composed of ten stars. The main body of the wave has seven stars (#‘s, 1 thru 7). And the tip of the crest of the wave has the other three stars (#’s, 8, 9 & 10). So we have this 7 and 10 numbering. And this gives us a great clue, as to where in the Bible we should look, to find out the riddle as to just what or who do these 7 heads, 10 crowns, and 7 horns represent. Because, the Bible speaks very much about floods and waters as being associated with Satan (the Dragon).
