“But Oz never did give nothing to the Tin Man,

that he didn’t, didn’t already have”

1974 Song, ‘Tin Man’, by ‘America’

.

Yes, the Wizard of Oz was a truly incredible work of unforgettable and magical imagery, which made a tremendous impact upon movie fans around the world!

.

In it, little fresh-faced Dorothy of Kansas captured the hearts of millions, as she and her three companions sought after the seemingly divine providence of the awesome and dreadful Wizard of that fantasy city of Oz!

LUCIFER: THE FATHER OF LIES

.

But like so many other antichrist deceptions emanating from this world, Lucifer’s Kingdom of Babylon, the story of the Wizard of Oz was no exception.

.

And today’s devotional is dedicated to exposing just one of those deceptions. And today’s focus is concerning the Tin Woodsman, who was lacking a heart, and joined Dorothy’s pilgrimage to seek after the Wizard’s providence.

SECULARISTS ANSWER TO PILGRIM’S PROGRESS

http://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:The_Pilgrim's_Progress_frontispiece_and_title_page_third_edition_1679.jpg.

Oh yes, that magical movie, The Wizard of Oz, captivated the hearts of movie-fans for decades, because it was so charming, colorful, and masterfully-produced!

http://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:The_Pilgrim's_Progress_frontispiece_and_title_page_third_edition_1679.jpg.

And yet, as wonderful as it seemed, it nevertheless was actually just a cheap “knock-off” of John Bunyan’s allegorical tale, Pilgrim’s Progress.

.

And it was actually just the mirror-opposite of Bunyan’s book, in that it directed the movie audience back down to this present world, instead of to Heaven, as did Bunyan’s tale. In other words, the far-away Land of Oz was really just a cleverly-disguised version of this world, as opposed to Bunyan’s “Celestial City” which was actually, Heaven. And the Wizard was nothing more than a Hollywood’s secular version of the God of Heaven.

https://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:Tin_Woodman.pngTHE HUMAN HEART DESPERATELY WICKED

.

And the big lie which is today’s focus, was that the Wizard told the Tin Man that he didn’t need a heart because he already had loving heart! This was just another deceitful lie by the “god of this world”, who would like us to believe that we humans can have inherent goodness apart from God!

.

It’s just like one songster sang back in the 1970’s, “But Oz never did give nothing to the Tin Man, that he didn’t already have!”

.

But nothing could be further from the truth! No, just the opposite! The Bible informs us that the human “heart is deceitful above all things, and desperately wicked: who can know it?” Jeremiah 17:9

.

Yes, the Bible reveals the true condition of the human heart: “deceitful above all things, and desperately wicked”

THE DAY OF THE LORD SHALL REVEAL MAN’S WICKEDNESS

https://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:Book_of_Revelation_Chapter_9-1_%28Bible_Illustrations_by_Sweet_Media%29.jpg.

But while many unconverted citizens of this, the Devil’s world, have been deluded by that Master-Deceiver into believing they possess a loving heart, there are many others who, like the Tin Man, realize they only have a loveless heart. Often these heartless ones are diagnosed by the psychiatric community as being “sociopaths”, lacking any love and even lacking a conscience to some degree.

.

But truth-be-told, the hour is coming in which all those who have not been truly Born Again will be fully made aware that they too are in need of a heart!

.

Yes, the frightful hour is coming in which God will allow the entire world to reveal just how evil, we fallen humans really are!

.

The Bible actually prophesy’s that things will get so evil, that once loving parents will even be cannibalizing their own children and visa-versa…“And I will cause them to eat the flesh of their sons and the flesh of their daughters, and they shall eat every one the flesh of his friend in the siege and straitness, wherewith their enemies, and they that seek their lives, shall straiten them.” Jeremiah 19:9

.

This Old Testament prophecy will soon be re-fulfilled on a grand world-wide scale!

.

Yes, very soon, God is going to remove any false delusion that we humans possess any inherent goodness, apart from God!

.

Well, what’s the Good News here in this horrible report?

.

https://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:Tin_Woodman.pngThe Good News is, that it’s not too late to receive a heart filled with true agape love! Listen again to the Bible…“A new heart also will I give you, and a new spirit will I put within you: and I will take away the stony heart out of your flesh, and I will give you an heart of flesh.” Ezekiel 36:26

 

.

Yes, God can take away any stony-cold loveless heart, and give any one of us who realize that “I too am merely a loveless, heartless Tin-Man” a brand new heart that has the same love and mercy which Jesus has! And as we know, Jesus, our Savior had a heart of infinite love, as He gave His life for an unloving and heartless world who hated Him and spurned His infinite love, crucifying Him on that cruel Cross of Calvary!

“And there appeared a great wonder in heaven; a woman…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…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, 15

WAVE of WATER CONSTELLATION

.
winter four constellations

The Wave Constellation is primarily comprised of the Auriga Constellation plus one star from Taurus, plus one more star. The Winter Constellations are depicted in this below sketch to the right, and shows this constellation group as they are seen in early winter, as they rise in the eastern skies. The Woman is in the north. The Dragon and Orion are farther south from the Woman.

.

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.

(Editor’s note: It is impossible to make this chart accurate, and visually correct, because the dome effect of the sky makes these constellations look different than they appear when placed on flat paper.)
