.

Yes, from the first time Luther discovered that Latin Bible chained to a monastery wall, Luther used every little bit of free time, to read God’s Word!

.

He even regretted the time spent eating his necessary food, because it prevented him from eating the heavenly bread!

HAROLD CAMPING: A LOVER OF GOD’S WORD!

.

Well, Luther was not the only one who loved God’s Word to that degree.

.

Yes, in the past decades, God raised up another servant who loved the Bible as much as Luther. Harold Camping spent 5 or 6 hours daily studying God’s Word. On his daily call-in talk show (scroll to page-bottom to hear), Camping often mentioned that he tried to study the Bible as if he were cramming for a final exam in college! Comparing scripture with scripture, and spiritual things with spiritual, Camping worked tirelessly each day, attempting to fit this incredible God-given “jig-saw puzzle” together, known as “the Bible”.

MUCH “HIDDEN MANNA!”

.

Yes, the Bible is a type of jig-saw puzzle in which God has veiled many deep truths within the various stories and parables found throughout its pages!

.

Yes, the Bible says…“It is the glory of God to conceal a thing: but the honour of kings is to search out a matter.” Proverbs 25:2

.

Here is one of the foundational principles which God lays down, as to how the Bible must be studied. Oh yes, there are many truths laying on the surface. But many other truths have been concealed by God, and must be searched out, as for hidden treasure!

.

These two dedicated servants worked tirelessly to seek for and search out the very truths which the apostate theologians have so greatly obfuscated over the past decades and centuries.

.

And in a very confused church-world, God raised up these two men to lead God’s people out of the dense fog confusion which lay heavily upon Christendom, back then, and even today still!

.

And those who consider themselves to be “Noble Bereans” should prove to themselves that they are truly open-minded lovers of truth by listening, not only to Camping’s audio, but also to the wonderful chapter on Martin Luther from Ellen White’s historical account of the church-age, “The Great Controversy Between Christ and Satan.” which is also toward the bottom of this page.

“Dear Lord, Help me to be an Noble Berean, that is, an open-minded seeker of truth, even if it means giving up a very highly regarded Church opinion! Let me be willing to investigate any seemingly new teaching if it appears to have some biblical validity…

TODAY’S FEATURED HEAVENLY SIGN

.

.

.

WHAT THIS PAGE IS ABOUT…

.

Corona Borealis Wikipedia Taken from software Perseus.

This page is concerned with the Glorious Crown (a.k.a. Corona Borealis Constellation), as is written… “And there appeared a great wonder (sign) in heaven; a woman…and upon her head a crown of twelve stars.” Revelation 12:1. 

.

corona borealis

.

This rather dim constellation follows behind that bright and beautiful star, Arcturus , as Arcturus leads a heavenly ambassage through the heavens each night in summer. 

.

many crowns happen to be studded with precious jewels. Well this heavenly crown is no exception! And though these “jewels” are stars, they represent the precious jewels spoken of throughout Scripture, when speaking about God’s people.

.

But this constellation is not nearly as high-profile as, say, the 7 Stars Constellation (a.k.a., The Big Dipper).  It is relatively dim, compared to those two bright constellations.

.

.

.

.

.

.

LOCATING THIS CROWN…

.

This constellation begins to appear in late December (just before dawn), but is best seen, mid-sky when this group of constellations can be seen when facing west. In March-April, very late in the pre-dawn hours, this Summer Constellation group begins to be seen when facing west, and continues to be seen in the west until fall.

.

The Crown follows almost directly behind that great star, Arcturus, as you can see in the sketch.

.

Repeat: it is somewhat easier to study the 12 stars of this constellation when it is in western half of night-sky (when you have to see it as you face westward). So when these Summer Constellations are in the western half of the sky, simply follow the handle of the Big Dipper till you locate Arcturus. Then the Crown is following Arcturus. You will only see the wreath-like 7 stars plus 1 star (in middle) until you get away from all city lights. Then you can make out the other 5 stars, which makes it appear like a full crown.

COMBINATION OF BOTH CORONA BOREALIS & BOOTES

.Wikipedia Star-Chart - Corona Borealis

This constellation is a combination of both Corona Borealis plus several stars from the Bootes Constellation.

.

The stars, Alkalyroos-Bootis and the Delta-Bootis Star are both combined with the other stars from the Corona Borealis community, to make this 12-star (plus 13th star in middle).
