Daily Devotional, Year 4 – February 17

The Orion Phenomena, Part 2: “Ellen White On Orion” CONTINUED

“Canst thou bind the sweet influences of Pleiades,

or loose the bands of Orion?

Job 38:31

.

.

.

.

.

.

Now in yesterday’s devotional (click here to read), the focus was on Ellen White’s comments regarding Orion (which God mentions several times in Scripture).

.

And she wrote the following statement…“Dark, heavy clouds came up and clashed against each other. The atmosphere parted and rolled back; then we could look up through the open space in Orion, whence came the voice of God. The Holy City will come down through that open space.” {From the Ellen White book, “Early Writings”}

.

Now this statement seems to be not only very cryptic, but very puzzling as well! After all, where in the Bible does it ever say that God’s voice came through that constellation? And where does it ever prophesy that “The Holy City will come down through that open space”?

THE HORSE NEBULA?

Well, many Adventists believe that the great “Horse Nebula” of Orion is that “open space”. And they may well be correct.

.

But there is another aspect to Orion which makes true biblical sense concerning her Orion statement.

THE NARROW WAY & BROAD WAY

.

Well, if the Reader will study “Orion the Reaper” it can be seen that the two brightest stars in Orion’s sickle represent “The Narrow Way”, as spoken of in Matthew 7:13, 14… “Enter ye in at the strait gate: for wide is the gate, and broad is the way, that leadeth to destruction, and many there be which go in thereat: Because strait is the gate, and narrow is the way, which leadeth unto life, and few there be that find it.”

.

Here is a very renowned Bible passage which has sparked many discussions  and debates through the centuries concerning this concept of a narrow way and a broad way.

.

Revelation 12 Woman & Orion’s Gate & Wide Gate

.

.

.

.

.

THE TWO WAYS DEPICTED IN THE NIGHT SKY

.

Yes, both the “Narrow Way” and “The Broad Way” are represented in the Heavens. And while the two brightest stars in Orion’s sickle represent the Narrow Way,the two brightest stars of the Revelation 12 Dragon’s wave of water coming out of his mouth represent the Broad Way that leads to destruction. And as this star-chart shows, the Narrow Way stars are much closer together than the Broad Way stars.

A SPIRITUAL MEANING?

.

And so it makes perfect sense that these Narrow Way stars could very well be what Ellen White was speaking of as “The open space in Orion”. After all, isn’t the “Narrow Way” actually referring to the spiritual doorway that we must enter into to receive our Salvation?

.

And so, Ellen White may indeed have been referring to this spiritual concept depicted in the heavens. In other words, Ellen White was actually speaking of a spiritual concept and not a literal one.

.

.

THE NARROW WAY IS THE ONE TRUE PATH TO SALVATION

.

Well, those who feel strongly that the great Horse Nebula was what Mrs. White was referring to, may be partly right. But this Orion the Reaper may actually be what her comment was referring to.

.

Nevertheless, the Reader is encouraged to make sure that he or she has truly entered into the true “Narrow Way” (Christ) in their own life. For He is the only true Doorway to Salvation!

ORION GETS THE VICTORY

.

.

.

Now if you will stay up all night, you will see that the tables turn very dramatically for our three warriors.

.

This is because, as night progresses, and this constellation group moves to the west, God has designed this threesome to now be in the opposite circumstance. Now it is Orion and his Horse who are atop the Dragon. Now Orion is about to cut off the Dragon’s head with his two-edged sword, while the Horse is stomping on his tail. And of course, there needs to be no explanation, because this picture tells the whole story. Jesus wins in the end! God’s people are victorious at last! No wonder the Bible calls this story…“The Good News”!
