Taking Back This Nation For God! Part 10: “How To Stop the Growing Lawlessness in the Land” CONTINUED

“Righteousness exalteth a nation:

but sin is a reproach to any people.”

Proverbs 14:34

http://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:At_a_loss.svgIt’s truly amazing how much evil is occurring in today’s most advanced societies.

.

But it is equally amazing how an intelligent society hasn’t yet figured out that by allowing morals to decline, crime and other evils rise at about the same rate.

“THE LOVE OF MANY SHALL WAX COLD”https://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:Cleaver_family_Leave_it_to_Beaver_1960.JPG

Matthew 24:12 

.

Just look at television for instance. From 1950 to present day, the morals have https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:Beavis_and_Butt-head_titlecard.pngdeclined tremendously (not that the morals of the past were so wonderful.)

.

And yet, knowing how societal standards have so greatly devolved over such a relatively short time, society just seems oblivious to the fact that its moral standards on television, Internet, and radio greatly determine the moral (or immoral) behavior of that society.

“BE NOT DECEIVED. EVIL COMMUNICATIONS CORRUPT”

.

Still, society simply allows more and more evil to be viewed and listened to on a daily basis, via the high-tech media.

.

And instead of maintaining the highest standards for what these various media are allowed to broadcast, society is permitting more and more evil to be pumped into the hearts and minds of its citizenry.

.

And then when these horrific evils are reenacted in real-life situations, society seems puzzled as to why all this wickedness is occurring!

.

But Scripture plainly declares…“Be not deceived: evil communications corrupt good manners. Awake to righteousness, and sin not;” 1st Corinthians 15:33, 34

.

.

“BE NOT DECEIVED. EVIL COMMUNICATIONS CORRUPT”

 .

It is very troubling that school shootings have an eerie resemblance to today’s video games. In other words, many video games are based on killing as many imaginary people as possible! And millions of young people are daily devoted to operating a hand-controlled device that simulates the slaughter of humans. 

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:Columbine_Shooting_Security_Camera.jpg.

Of course, this only confirms the Bible passage…“Be not deceived. Evil communications corrupt good manners (good behavior)” 1st Corinthians 15:33.

.

What’s amazing is that so many are completely missing this connection altogether!

.

But why should it surprise us when a young person acts out these video games in real-life atrocities?

“FOR WE WRESTLE NOT AGAINST FLESH AND BLOOD”

Ephesians 6:13-17

.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:Martin,_John_-_Satan_presiding_at_the_Infernal_Council_-_1824.JPGWell, perhaps this is an oversimplification of the problem.

.

So then, just what is the deep root cause for our moral decline?

.

Simple! Satan is the ruler of this world of sin and selfishness.

.

And until Mankind fully realizes this and turns away from this sin, things are going to continue to grow worse.

“IN THAT DAY THE LORD…SHALL PUNISH…THAT CROOKED SERPENT”

Isaiah 27:1 

.

Oh yes, Satan may change his modus-operandi for a little while, when it suits his deceptive purpose.

.

In other words, “the god of this world” can cause society to seemingly transform into a higher degree of morality all of a sudden. But should he do so, we can be confident that things will continue to grow worse and worse, in one way or another!

.

Licentious images on the media will be replaced with just a more insidious and totalitarian form of evil! And Christians will be targeted.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:Brown_tree_snake_Boiga_irregularis_2_USGS_Photograph.jpg.

Satan is much smarter than all of us collectively! And he sometimes works very cleverly within the framework of the law to oppress God’s people…“Shall the throne of iniquity have fellowship with thee, which frameth mischief by a law? They gather themselves together against the soul of the righteous, and condemn the innocent blood.” Psalm 94:20, 21

.

And he’s like a crooked serpent! He never travels in a straight path! He can change directions at any time! And as this above passage reveals, Satan often works within the laws of the land to oppress people.

“GOOD NEWS FROM A FAR COUNTRY”

Proverbs 25:25

.

But the very Good News is, that God is now calling for anyone who is fed up with this evil world, to turn back to Him with all their heart.

.

Don’t wait for some mass societal collective repentance.

.

But when that individual Believer continues to climb that ever-ascending pathway out of this world, that faithful follower of Jesus can escape the tsunami of evil that is now sweeping through the land.

TODAY’S FEATURED HEAVENLY SIGN

.

.

“Multitudes, multitudes in the ‘Valley of Decision’…

.

for the day of the Lord is near in the ‘Valley of Decision’.”

Valley of Decision w/names

.

“The sun and the moon shall be darkened, and the stars shall withdraw their shining… 

.

“The LORD also shall roar out of Zion, and utter His voice from Jerusalem…

.

“And the heavens and the earth shall shake…

.

“But the LORD will be the hope of his people, and the strength of the children of Israel.

Joel 3:14-16

LOCATING THIS CONSTELLATION GROUP…

.

Valley of Decision + O Destroying Mountain Constellation Group

.

Look eastward in the early summer through fall. Find the Cassiopeia Constellation. Cassiopeia is the Mount of Blessing. In the sketch, it is the farthest mountain to the left. In the sky, it is the northern-most of these three mountains when facing eastward. It resembles a pyramid.

.

Then find the second pyramid to its right (south).

.

Then go a little further south to the next third pyramid. The third snow-cap is the Destroying Mountain Constellation.

.

These three pyramids are the snow-capped portion of these three mountains in this sketch. (of course, you won’t see the snow-caps in the sky. They are just an embellishment in this sketch to present a concept-EDITOR).

.

 

.

THE VALLEY OF DECISION CONSTELLATION GROUP.

Valley of Decision & O Destroying Mtn. Constellations

.

They appear in mid-summer in the eastern skies in pre-dawn hours. These are made of Cassiopeia (mount on left), and various stars from the Andromeda Constellation (valley) Pegasus (Mount of Cursing (middle mount) & Destroying Mount (right)), and Pisces (Broad Way to Hell). The galaxy which appears to be climbing the Mountain of Blessing is the Andromeda Galaxy

.

The above Wikipedia star-chart shows this amazing constellation group as it appears from June to fall, just prior to the winter constellation group. Actually, these Valley of Decision Constellations appear in early summer in the pre-dawn hours. (Editor of this website has sketched in this constellation group onto this above Wikipedia star-chart.)
