And The Nations Were Angry! Part 3: “Planet Earth, An Experiment In Selfishness”

To read Part 1, go here…October 24th (And The Nations Were Angry!)

.

.

.

“And the nations were angry,

and Thy wrath is come,

and the time of the dead,

that they should be judged,

Revelation 11:18

.

.

.

.

WOW! Just look at the way things are going in today’s world! It’s hard to be optimistic when the world seems to be spiraling out of control. Yes, this world seems to be going helter-skelter.

.

In the world of politics, the pure venomous hatred between the opposing ideologies has reached a boiling-over point!

The mass media news has devolved into little more than yellow journalism, when it comes to anything related to politics.

.

Rogue religions are attempting to force themselves upon the world, under the threat of physical violence.

.

https://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:Jazz_Jennings_2016.jpgOur schools are increasingly becoming indoctrination centers for anti-biblical ideologies: socialism, evolutionary atheism, and now even pushing perverted lifestyles on the students.

.

Our justice system has become filled with socially/politically activist judges.

.

Our government leaders are leading us into financial suicide, as the national debt continues to climb.

.

The various ethnic groups are becoming increasingly intolerant and disdainful of each other.

Our colleges becoming increasingly intolerant of any speech that opposes the dominant ideologies.

.

Censorship by the Internet giants is sending many websites into the cyber-abyss because they are not “politically correct” in what they advocate.

.

The number of sick persons around the world is greatly increasing.

.

People are becoming increasingly intolerant of each other for social, personal, and religious reasons.

.

The various churches and denominations are now preaching the prosperity-driven gospels, sometimes referred to as, “The Name-It-And-Claim-It Gospel” or the “Entrepreneurial Spirit”. 

(Oh yes, these prosperity ideologies may be fine for the people of the world to pursue, but the Christian’s great focus and chief desire is now to be Heavenward, seeking to be transformed into the image of Christ.)

.

And the list goes on and on of how this world is falling apart.

PLANET EARTH: EXPERIMENT IN SELFISHNESS

.

But really, to understand all this global failure, we need to realize that this world was originally just an experiment in selfishness. That’s right, Lucifer, being one of the chief angels of Heaven, thought http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:Martin,_John_-_Satan_presiding_at_the_Infernal_Council_-_1824.JPGhe had discovered a better way than God’s government of unselfish love.

.

And in His infinite wisdom, God allowed Lucifer to bring his rebellion down to this little planet, to show the universe what a terrible ideology Lucifer was trying to sell to us.

.

And so, this world has been allowed to continue on for the millenniums it has existed until this very day when everything seems to be failing.

LUCIFER WAS DESTINED FOR FAILURE

.

And God knew all along that this world was destined for failure.

.

But God couldn’t convince us, unless He allowed us to suffer through this experiment in selfishness (And let’s face it! That’s all that sin really is: selfishness!)

.

But if He didn’t show us up close and first-hand, we could never have comprehended just how evil selfishness really is!

“EVERY KNEE SHALL BOW”

https://www.brooklynmuseum.org/opencollection/objects/4594/The_Confession_of_the_Centurion_La_Confession_du_Centurion

.

And so, now it simply remains for Planet Earth’s inhabitants to bow our knee and confess to God our failure.

.

And this confession will happen! It’s just a matter of time. As things continue to grow worse and worse, the world will soon surrender. For it is written…“for we shall all stand before the Judgment Seat of Christ. For it is written, As I live, saith the Lord, every knee shall bow to Me, and every tongue shall confess to God.” Romans 14:10, 11

THE ARK IN THE HEAVENS

.Two Turtledoves birds & Flower Of The Field Constellations

So what importance to us is all this information? Well, if a person goes out at night, beginning in April (earlier in southern-most latitudes, and later in northern-most), in the pre-dawn hour, they just might locate the constellation commonly referred to as the Sagittarius Constellation . It is located in the southern sky. (Each night it appears a little earlier, slowly inching westward, through the summer, until it finally disappears below the western horizon in November.)

.Ark of the Covenant Constellation

At first, it simply appears as two twin birds flying westward. But if you look once again, it just might appear as a long box-like figure, with one star on the right, as you face it, and two stars on the left. The box, of course would be the Ark, and the stars on either side would represent angels, which are sometimes referred to as stars in the Bible (for instance, “the seven stars are the angels…” Revelation 1:20). To the right is a star-chart from Wikipedia, in which the editor of this site has sketched in this Sagittarius Constellation, to show how God created it to appear.

Star-chart to right is from Wikipedia. Editor has sketched over Sagittarius to show this Ark Constellation.
