The Natural Man & Bible Prophecy, Part 2: “Ellen White & Harold Camping”

To read Part 1, click here…Today’s Devotional – June 22nd (The Natural Man & Bible Prophecy)

.

.

.

.

.

In Part 1 (click here to read), a very critically important truth was established, concerning how the apostate portion of the Church cannot properly discern spiritual things to a great degree.

.

For the vast majority of theologians and Bible teachers, they do not engage in thorough comprehensive Bible study, comparing all related passages on various aspects of Bible prophecy, trying to relate all to the Church…“I Jesus have sent mine angel to testify unto you these things in the churches”Revelation 22:16

.

This above verse at the end of Revelation is not properly understood by the apostate portion of the Church. They do not understand that Revelation, all 22 chapters, was written for the Church, because it all has to do with events in the churches throughout New Testament times!

“THEIR EARS ARE DULL…THEIR EYES…CLOSED”

.

But this inability to see the true spiritual meaning is not completely the fault of these apostate Bible theologians and teachers.

.

They simply do not have eyes to see nor ears to hear the true spiritual nature of the Bible.

.

Listen to Jesus…“For this people’s heart is waxed gross, and their ears are dull of hearing, and their eyes they have closed; lest at any time they should see with their eyes and hear with their ears, and should understand with their heart, and should be converted, and I should heal them.” Matthew 13:15

.

.

.

.

.

.

“THESE THINGS…FOR OUR ADMONITION”

.

This above verse from Matthew 13:15 applies not only to the Old Testament people, but also to us, “Now all these things happened unto them (Old Testament Israel) for ensamples: and they are written for our admonition, upon whom the ends of the world are come. Wherefore let him that thinketh he standeth take heed lest he fall.” 1st Corinthians 10:11, 12

.

And so, blindness is upon the apostate portion of the Church, that they cannot see the deeper spiritual meaning to these prophecies.

“BUT THE NATURAL MAN RECEIVES NOT…BECAUSE THEY ARE SPIRITUALLY DISCERNED”

1st Corinthians 2:14 

.

Therefore, instead of comparing all related Bible passages concerning this or that particular aspect of prophecy, these blind guides usually just look out on the political landscape of the Middle East and try to find some similar situation by looking at the daily news.

.

But what they do not understand is that in so-doing, they are violating the cardinal rule concerning how to properly decipher Bible prophecy.

.

“EVERY WORD OF GOD IS PURE…ADD THOU NOT…AND THOU BE FOUND A LIAR!”

Proverbs 30:5

.

Listen to this fearful warning from this cardinal rule… “For I testify unto every man that heareth the words of the prophecy of this book, If any man shall add unto these things, God shall add unto him the plagues that are written in this book: And if any man shall take away from the words of the book of this prophecy, God shall take away his part out of the book of life, and out of the holy city, and [from] the things which are written in this book.” Revelation 22:18, 19

.

You see, by attempting to interpret Bible prophecy through comparing scripture with newspaper stories, they are unwittingly adding to God’s Word, joining it to the words of men via the daily news reports.

.

In other words, instead of comparing spiritual things with spiritual, to find how prophecy relates to the Church and to the war between Heaven and Hell, they instead mistakenly try to relate Bible prophecy to current political events.

.

.

.

WHITE AND CAMPING

.

On the other hand, both Ellen White and Harold Camping realized that Bible prophecy relates to the Church, both the apostate portion and the faithful portion, and how Heaven and Hell have been battling for victory over the Church.

ONLY AFTER ALL HOMEWORK ACCOMPLISHED

.

Now having said all this, it also must be said that there is indeed a time to look out into the world to see the fulfillment of Bible prophecy.

.

But that’s only when the Bible student has done his or her due diligence in comparing all related scriptures to discern the true spiritual fulfillment of each metaphor, and how it relates to the Church, and to the Gospel, and to the war between Heaven and Hell.

STUDY NOBLE BEREAN, STUDY!

.

Now, both Camping and White viewed Revelation from somewhat different vantage points. But http://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:Holy_bible.jpgevery true Noble Berean is highly encouraged to dig in to “The Great Controversy” and to Harold Camping’s daily radio broadcasts via these devotionals, and begin to prayerfully blend these two teachings together along with the Signs Of Heaven to more fully comprehend what God wants us to understand.

.

And of course, the Bible is the premier Book to study, since it gives us the foundation of truth to confirm or disprove the veracity of all human teachings.

.

And may the Lord give both you and myself the grace and desire to devote ourselves to this work.

TODAY’S FEATURED HEAVENLY SIGN

.

.

.

THE HOLY GHOST RIDER CONSTELLATION

.

This newest Signs Of Heaven Constellation (Fall, 2013) is by far the faintest of constellations, but is a very incredible and awesome one in a number of ways (which this article will explain).

Holy-Ghost-Rider in the Western night-sky

.

It is primarily comprised of the Camelopardalis Constellation (head and upper back), plus about 5 stars from the Cassiopeia Constellation (his leg), plus some random stars. It appears as an outline of a rider. Only the back of his head is detailed. And his back and the back of his legs are also detailed. Both sides of his arm are visible, and his hand is gripping the horses mane, and that is detailed by three stars (which are also part of the horse’s mane). The rider is in a position vaguely similar to a race-horse jockey. The two brightest stars in this constellation, are from the Cassiopeia Constellation, and are part of his leg. All the rest of the stars are very faint, and must be viewed on a very starry night.

.

Since this constellation has just been revealed, there may be more to this constellation in the coming months. But if you can locate the Goodly Horse in Battle Constellation, then you shouldn’t have too much trouble locating this Rider Constellation, provided you have excellent star-watching conditions.

BIBLE VERSES PICTURED IN THE HEAVENS

.

“With the hoofs of his horses shall he tread down all thy streets: he shall slay thy people by the sword, and thy strong garrisons shall go down to the ground.” Ezekiel 26:12

Holy-Ghost-Rider Constellation

.

THIS STAR-CHART: This is a Wikipedia star-chart, in which this site’s editor has sketched in these three constellation (without the Holy-Ghost-Rider Constellation). Notice how the right front hoof is trampling on the tail of the Dragon. Also notice his eye is a star.It’s best seen when in the western half of the sky. It is found in mid-sky traveling from east to west. In January, it is in the west after midnight. As winter progresses, it can be seen earlier and earlier in the evening. a dark sky with good star-visibility is best, but not absolutely necessary to see this constellation. It is found on the opposite side of the Dragon Constellation from Orion. And as already stated, this Goodly Horse Constellation can be seen best in mid-winter when it is in the western side of the sky, and you are looking at it while you are facing west. The nose and head of this horse is partly made from the Perseus Constellation. The tail and rear end is partly of the Cassiopeia Constellation. The hind-leg is made partly of stars from the Andromeda Constellation.
