Noble Bereans, Part 52: “Dead People Speaking!?” CONTINUED

So, in this little series, the subject of those noble Bereans has been introduced. And today, it is still worthy of a little more exploration into another area of concern.

.

Let’s review the key Bible passage… “And the brethren immediately sent away Paul and Silas by night unto Berea: who coming there, went into the synagogue of the Jews. These were more noble than those in Thessalonica, in that they received the word with all readiness of mind, and searched the scriptures daily, whether those things were so.” Acts 17:10, 11

AN OPEN-MINDED SPIRIT IN BEREA

.

Okay, so those in Berea were more noble, because they:

.

1. “Received the Word with all readiness of mind.”

2. “And searched the Scriptures daily, whether those things were so.”

.

And so, the Bereans were ready to receive new teachings, which no doubt, conflicted with the supposed, “orthodox” teachings of that day.

.

Thus there was an open-mindedness which permeated their hearts, and a willingness to search the Scriptures daily, in hopes that these seemingly new teachings were indeed true!

THE FALSE PROPHET

.

Ellen White pin-pointed the Revelation 13 “False Prophet” as being Satan coming from the United States of America, and causing the world to bow down to the 1st Beast of Revelation 13 which was the apostate Church of Rome working in the churches of Europe.

.

Harold Camping on the other hand pin-pointed the “False Prophet” as being Satan as he came as an “angel of light” to deceive the world and the churches through his so-called, “ministers of righteousness”. (see 2nd Corinthians 11:14, 15)

.

And in a sense, both Camping and White are correct. In other words, the correct answer is, “All of the above”.

COUNTERFEIT MIRACLES

.

Yes, Satan’s False Prophet is indeed the antichrist spirit which originally rose up in the New World, but is spreading his deadly tentacles throughout the world via the fallen apostate churches.

.http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:Snakehandling.png

And one of the great evidences of this miracle-working spirit is the many counterfeit miracles which the fallen churches are performing: tongues, falling backwards (slain in the spirit), voices, visions, dreams are now occurring throughout the world-wide christian community.

.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:Laying_on_of_hands.jpgAnd perhaps the greatest evidence that these signs and wonders are merely counterfeits is the fact that the church-world has become so apostate.

DREAMS

.

For example, take the phenomenon of dreams. Many faithful church-goers are receiving so-called prophetic dreams which they attribute to the Holy Spirit. And of course, this is the work of the False Prophet who deceives these poor lost souls into believing that God is working marvelously through them.

.

Listen…“And he doeth great wonders, so that he maketh fire come down from heaven on the earth in the sight of men, And deceiveth them that dwell on the earth by the means of those miracles which he had power to do in the sight of the beast; saying to them that dwell on the earth, that they should make an image to the beast, which had the wound by a sword, and did live.”Revelation 13:13, 14

.

This above passage reveals that this False Prophet will deceive men via these counterfeit miracles, making them think they are saved when in truth, they still love this present, selfish world to a great extent.

.

.

.

.

.

.

.

LOVING THIS SELFISH WORLD

.

Unfortunately, most faithful church-goers are still conformed to the qualities of this world, and have little desire to become totally renewed into the image of Christ. After all, why would they ever want to become fully converted and fully Christlike? That would require them to forsake all. And they have no desire to forsake all, becoming Christlike.

.

But the False Prophet comes to them, giving them prophetic-like dreams and other lying signs and wonders to deceive them into their false sense of security.

.

.

.

.

.

.

“COME OUT OF HER, MY PEOPLE”

.

Well, if there is any Good News, it is that God is calling His professed people to “Come out of her, My people, lest ye partake of her sins and receive of her plagues” Revelation 18:4

.

All who are willing to renounce this selfish world and follow the Lamb to the top of Mount Sion will be counted with the overcomers. And they will have their Heavenly Father’s true name written in their foreheads (in their hearts). And that name is defined by the Holy Bible, and is the image of true righteousness and holiness.

TODAY’S FEATURED HEAVENLY SIGN

.

.

.

THESE SIGNS ARE MENTIONED

.winter four constellations

From time to time, the Book of Revelation mentions stars. But when we get to Revelation Chapter 12, it speaks of two “great signs in heaven”. First, it speaks of the sign in heaven of a woman with child. Then it speaks of the sign in heaven of a great red dragon, with a tail that sweeps one-third of the stars and casts these stars down to the earth. So we get the sense that this phenomenon that the Apostle John was seeing, was closely intertwined with the starry host of the heavens. And these two signs in heaven, a woman, and a dragon, are a big part of this website, Signs Of Heaven.

.

And so this phenomenon that the Apostle John was seeing, was closely intertwined with the starry host of the heavens.

.

What really gives validity to this idea, is that God created the Universe in such a way, that if one looks at the major constellations, then this Revelation 12 scenario can be seen. So please read on. And if you really want to see this heavenly battle, you just might. It will take some real effort on your part. But through prayer, faith, and study of the site, God may just graciously open your eyes to see this amazing story written on the heavenly scroll above. But don’t wait! This heavenly scroll will soon be rolled up, just as it is written… “And the heaven departed as a scroll when it is rolled together;” Revelation 6:14

.

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.
