Noble Bereans, Part 49: “Dead People Speaking!?”

.

.

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!

A BABYLONISH HELL

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:Hieronymus_Bosch_042.jpg

.

It only makes sense that spiritual Babylon (in the form of today’s fallen world, including the world-loving churches and denominations) would have doctrines which originated in ancient Babylon. And the church-doctrine of “the immortality of the soul”, living in a conscience state in Hell actually originated in ancient Babylon (information from “The Two Babylons” by Alexander Hislop).

.

After all, it was the serpent in the garden who first falsely promised the woman…“Ye shall not surely die: For God doth know that in the day ye eat thereof, then your eyes shall be opened, and ye shall be as gods, knowing good and evil.” Genesis 3:4, 5

.

Yes, it has always been that serpent, Satan, who lies against Bible truth, when Scripture clearly teaches…“The soul that sinneth, it shall die.” Ezekiel 18:4, 20

CHURCHES ARE BABYLON

.

Ellen White taught the truth (that the soul dies), and yet, the present-day church-world considers her to be a heretic over such teachings.

.

This is because the fallen and apostate churches and denominations continue to cling to a more Babylonish form of eternal existence.

.

They believe that whether or not a person is saved, they will go on and on, either in Heavenly bliss, or else in Hellish eternal torment.

HAROLD CAMPING

.

Harold Camping also believed in the immortality of the soul for most of his life, although he did finally recant over his life-long belief in “Eternal Torment”, just a few years prior to his death.

.

And so, this is one area of the Three Angel’s Messages that the 1st message (Ellen White) is more correct than the 2nd Angel’s Message (Harold Camping).

.

Nevertheless, God has raised up the 3rd Angel’s Message to set these things straight.

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.
