Have you ever seen an Alligator Snapping Turtle? It is an amazing sight to behold! This great deceiver lies at the bottom of the water just waiting to catch an unsuspecting fish!

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:Alligator_snapping_turtle_less_than_1_year_old.jpg

.

But the manner in which this turtle catches its prey is a remarkable aspect of nature…

.

Listen to Wikipedia’s description… “The inside of the turtle’s mouth is camouflaged, and it possesses a vermiform (literally, “worm-shaped”) appendage on the tip of its tongue, used to lure fish, a form of Peckhamian mimicry.

.

“The turtle hunts by lying motionless in the water with its mouth wide open. The vermiform tongue imitates the movements of a worm, luring prey to the turtle’s mouth. The mouth is then closed with tremendous speed and force, completing the ambush.”

“THE FISHES OF THE SEA SHALL DECLARE UNTO THEE”

Job 12:7

.

Now, just as all nature teaches us various aspects of truth, this Alligator Snapping http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:Alligator_snapping_turtle_less_than_1_year_old.jpgTurtle is no exception!

.

As a matter of fact, it would seem as if the Christian community is somewhat like the little fish victim of one of these turtle predators.

“COME OUT FROM AMONG THEM, AND BE SEPARATE”

2nd Corinthians 6:17

"Welcome to Hell" may use or share with credit or link to www.signsofheaven.org

.

After all, in spite of multiple warnings in scripture to keep ourselves separate from this secular world, the church-world has ignored God by continuing to cozy up to this antichrist society in so many ways.

.

Yes, society has become so friendly to Christians, that we have forgotten all about the centuries of bloody persecution of the Church by the world.

.

And by freely mingling with the world, Christians have unwittingly settled in with the enemy, thinking that they were our friends, when nothing could be further from the truth!

.

And now, all of a sudden, the deadly jaws of the Alligator Snapping Turtle have snapped shut, and we are caught in its death-grip.

“THE IMAGE OF THE BEAST SHALL SPEAK”

(see Revelation 13:15)

.

After all, just look at our hopeless situation. We and our children have found ourselves enclosed in a giant indoctrination machine: television, radio, Internet, newspapers, magazines, books, billboards, learning institutions, as well as every aspect of society have now joined together to become a giant totalitarian indoctrination machine for this antichrist society. And by merely going through our day, Satan’s character is continually being indelibly stamped upon the tables of the human heart.

.

Unfortunately, our children are the greatest recipients of this totalitarian mind-control. They don’t even seem to have a chance to escape. Wherever they turn in society, they are subjected to this normalization of Satan’s character into their consciousness.

“AT THE END IT (THE VISION) SHALL SPEAK”

.

Well, God has warned us that this day was coming. And now it’s here! And fore-warnings from such places as Habakkuk now sound out with a fearful reality.

http://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/commons/3/38/Tissot_Habakkuk.jpg

.

Listen…“And the LORD answered me, and said, Write the vision, 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

.

Yes, Habakkuk warned that the day would come when God’s people would be closed in on every side by this Babylonian world. Habakkuk warned that God’s people would have our senses hopelessly perverted by the overwhelming influences of this antichrist society.

.

And when that day did finally arrive, we have been counseled by God to “RUN!”, as it says in Habakkuk 2:2

“GOOD NEWS FROM A FAR COUNTRY!”

Proverbs 25:25

.http://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:Genesis19-17.jpg

Well, the Good News is, that every one who still has a ear to hear, will indeed hear and respond accordingly: “RUN!” says the prophet! “Flee to the mountains!” warns Jesus in Matthew, Mark, and Luke. “Flee as a bird to your mountain!” cries the Psalmist! “Flee out of the midst of Babylon, and deliver every man his soul”, cries the prophet Jeremiah. “Come out of her, My people, that ye be not partakers of her sins, and that ye receive not of her plagues.” calls that great Voice from Heaven.

.

Yes, there is no shortage of warnings from God’s Word, that God’s people must once again make an end-time exodus out of this Babylonian world.

“FLEE OUT OF THE MIDST OF BABYLON!”

.Constellation- Woman of Revelation 12 flees to the mountains Mark 13:14

And no, we cannot right now come entirely out of this evil world. But we can come a good way out if we so-choose! And by so-doing we can “deliver every man his soul: be not cut off in her iniquity; for this is the time of the LORD’S vengeance; He will render unto her a recompense. Babylon hath been a golden cup in the LORD’S hand, that made all the earth drunken: the nations have drunken of her wine; therefore the nations are mad; though their land was filled with sin” Jeremiah 51:6, 7

.

Yes, the time has fully come for God’s people to “Come out of her, My people, that ye be not partakers of her sins, and that ye receive not of her plagues.” Revelation 18:4

THE REVELATION 12 WOMAN

.

FROM WHERE & TO WHERE DOES SHE FLEE?

.

.

star-chart ursa major summerr

.

This article is about the Big Dipper, also called the Great Bear constellation (Ursa Major ). However, the ancient pagan cultures did not see this constellation as God intended it to be seen. It is actually a headless woman in childbirth.  This is seen in springtime. It is seen in the northern skies. 

.

But as the seasons progress, this travailing woman flips upside down, now appearing as a woman with upraised arms like eagle wings who is running (eventually flying, as shown in sketch on right) into the wilderness (westward). The single star representing her birth-child (Christ) now becomes her head (“Christ is the head of the church.” Ephesians 5:23

.

The 7 Stars (Big Dipper) is easy to see with its very bright 7 stars. But the Revelation 12 Woman (Ursa Major) must be seen on a dark starry night, away from city lights. 

.

These are star charts from Wikipedia, with sketches of the Woman added.
