“Ask ye now, and see whether a man doth travail with child?

wherefore do I see every man with his hands on his loins,

as a woman in travail,

and all faces are turned into paleness?

Alas! for that day is great,

so that none is like it:

it is even the time of Jacob’s trouble;

but he shall be saved out of it.”

Jeremiah 30:6, 7

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:Jacob_Wrestling_with_the_Angel.jpgThis website has various articles concerning the coming “Time of Jacob’s Trouble” which is coming upon God’s people in these last moments of this fallen planet’s history.

.

And basically, these articles lay out the premise that this time of trouble is concerning the internal struggle which goes on in the soul of every true Believer, who must strive to fully crucify the “Old Man” within.

.

Yes, there are two natures in which each Believer has, “The Old Man…which is corrupt according to the deceitful lusts…” Ephesians 4:22, and, “The New Man…which after God is created in righteousness and true holiness.” Ephesians 4:24 

.

Here above, we see that “The Old Man” which has been indwelling the hearts of the unsaved, furiously wages an unprecedented spiritual war against “The New Man” now dwelling within the Believer’s heart.

.

Now, this Bible Truth of the spiritual war within Christians is spoken of in slightly different terms in the little book of Galatians…“For the flesh lusteth against the Spirit, and the Spirit against the flesh: and these are contrary the one to the other: so that ye cannot do the things that ye would.” Galatians 5:17

.

This above verse speaks of the struggle between the flesh and the Spirit, which is a constant spiritual warfare which every Believer must fight on a daily basis.

.

Now, Ellen G. White has a somewhat different interpretation of this coming “Time of Trouble”. Yes, Ellen White saw the struggle of God’s people as a struggle with the unsaved multitudes, both in the world, but also the unsaved within the churches.

.

https://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:Anti-Christian_sign_in_Federal_Plaza_Chicago.jpgYes, the time is near when every true Christian will be struggling against the unsaved multitudes of this rebellious planet.

.

Well, this different perspective is likewise a valid interpretation of “The Time of Jacob’s Trouble”, and is complete harmony with this website’s perspective.

.

And the Reader is highly encouraged to scroll down almost to the bottom of this page and listen to the 45-minute audio reading of the Great Controversy, to the Chapter entitled, “The Time of Trouble”.

.

So please scroll down this page until you come to Ellen White’s audio reading of the Chapter, “The Time of Trouble”.

TODAY’S FEATURED HEAVENLY SIGN

The info and pics of the constellations on this site are all taken from Wikipedia and from The Internation Astronomical Union (click here to view their site)

.

.

.

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. 

.

The above picture is not a totally accurate, but hopefully close enough to locate these constellations in the night-sky. Scroll down this page to see actual star-charts.

“HE THAT HATH EARS TO HEAR”

.

“He that hath an ear, let him hear what the Spirit saith unto the churches;” Rev. 2:7, 11, 17, 29, 3:6, 13, 22

As you can easily see, this horse has some very big ears. Of course, this presents a very big concept. And since this Rider represents the Holy Spirit, it is obvious that He is leaning close, as if to whisper His words in the horses’ ears. And so what is He (The Spirit) whispering in this horses ears? Well, primarily the messages to the 7 churches, found in Revelation Ch.’s, 2 & 3.

.

But not everyone has ears to hear. Listen to Ezekiel… “Son of man, thou dwellest in the midst of a rebellious house, which have eyes to see, and see not; they have ears to hear, and hear not: for they are a rebellious house.” Ezek. 12:2. Yes, the rebellion amongst God’s professing people was great, and they had all but closed their ears from hearing truth.

.

Well it’s the very same problem in the New Testament. Listen to Jesus… “If any man have ears to hear, let him hear.” Mark 7:16.

.

So this Rider whispering into this Horse’s ears is a heavenly picture of this concept… “He that hath an ear, let him hear what the Spirit saith unto the churches;” Rev. 2:7, 11, 17, 29, 3:6, 13, 22.

Holy-Ghost-Rider Constellation.

Now the great lesson to be learned, is that there are certain truths, which those who are rebellious in God’s house, will not be able to hear. And these messages to the 7 churches are those very types of messages, that many “Christians” just do not like to hear.

.

And so, what is the bottom line. Well, it would be a very good idea, for each and every one of us to humble ourselves before God, and plead with Him to give us spiritual ears to hear these deeper truths which God is trying to tell us.
