Daily Devotional, Year 3 – April 3

Apocalypse NOW! Part 14: “Has The King Left The Building?”

To read Part 1, click here…AUGUST 3 (Apocalypse Now! Part 1: Silencing the Gospel!)

.

.

.

.

.

“And because iniquity shall abound,

the love of many shall wax cold.

But he that shall endure unto the end,

the same shall be saved.

And this gospel of the kingdom shall be preached in all the world

for a witness unto all nations; and then shall the end come.

Matthew 24:12-14

Back in the 1960’s, a popular magazine asked the question…“Is God Dead?” 

.

And that saying swept around the world like a wildfire…“Is God Dead!” And this mantra by the atheist community became the hot topic of conversatiohttp://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:The_Beatles!.jpgn, seemingly everywhere!

.

About that same time, a world renowned pop musical group proclaimed to the world… “We’re more popular than Jesus Christ!”https://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:Wax_Museum_Plus_%286344771051%29.jpg

.

Finally, after the King of Rock-n-Roll suddenly and unexpectedly died, a popular saying came about, and is still used even today… “‘The King’ has left the building!”

So just how are these three mantras to be related to today’s http://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:At_a_loss.svgdevotional?

.

Do Earth’s inhabitants still think that God is dead, or that He is unimportant?

.

And has the King left the building, so to speak?

“WISER IN THEIR OWN GENERATION”

.

Well, first, let it be noted that so many things in this world of sin have a somewhat eerie connection to the Bible.

.http://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:%D0%9C%D0%B0%D1%80%D1%88_%D0%BC%D0%B8%D1%80%D0%B0_%D0%9C%D0%BE%D1%81%D0%BA%D0%B2%D0%B0_21_%D1%81%D0%B5%D0%BD%D1%82_2014_%D0%9B%D0%98%D0%A6%D0%90.jpg

Yes, the Bible says that…“the children of this world are in their generation wiser than the children of light.” Luke 16:8

.

It seems that the people of the world have a wisdom about them that causes them to do and say things in the natural world, which can easily be translated into the spiritual realm!

.

And these three above sayings are no exception!

HOLY SPIRIT REMOVED

.

Listen to this…“For the mystery of iniquity doth already work: only he who now letteth will let, until he be taken out of the way. And then shall thhttps://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:Anti-Christian_sign_in_Federal_Plaza_Chicago.jpgat Wicked be revealed,”  2nd Thessalonians 2:7, 8

.

So here is seen that some great restraining power will be taken out of the way, allowing, “that Wicked”, to, “be revealed”!

.

Now many correctly assign this passage to the Church, and the removal of the Holy Spirit from the apostate church-world in the last days.

.

But it also seems to apply very correctly to the Holy Spirit being removed from the entire world in the last moments of time!

“THE WRATH OF GOD…”

.

https://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:Inkwazi_Shopping_Centre,_Malelane_Superspar.jpg

Listen to this assessment of the world by God…“For the wrath of God is revealed from heaven against all ungodliness and unrighteousness of men…Being filled with all unrighteousness, fornication, wickedness, covetousness, maliciousness; full of envy, murder, debate, deceit, malignity; whisperers, Backbiters, haters of God, despiteful, proud, boasters, inventors of evil things, disobedient to parents, Without understanding, covenantbreakers, without natural affection, implacable, unmerciful:” Romans 1:18, 29-31

.

Not a very nice description of mankind, wouldn’t you agree?

“GOD GAVE THEM UP!”                                                                                            

.

http://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:Burning_Man_2013_Photo_chapel,_The_wedding_party!_(9660390094).jpgNow listen to the divine sentence pronounced against this rebellious planet… “Wherefore God also gave them up to uncleanness through the lusts of their own hearts…For this cause God gave them up unto vile affections…God gave them over to a reprobate mind, to do those things which are not convenient;” Romans 1:24, 26, 28

.

Three times in this 1st chapter of Romans, it is declared that God “gave them up” (the human race).

.

Now this prophecy is concerning the last days in particular (although it has applied to a lessor degree at any time throughout history).

GOD WORKED BEHIND THE SCENES

.

What the human race race doesn’t understand is just how much God protected people in the past.

.

We just don’t realize that the Lord has quite often plucked a little child out of https://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:Angel_prayers.jpgharm’s way.

.

Nor do we understand how God helped long-lost loved ones to reunite.

.

Or how He secretly healed an ailing human, or rescued those who were in distress for one reason or another…

.

Listen…“Then they (the human race) cried unto the LORD in their trouble, and He saved them out of their distresses…Oh that men would praise the LORD for His goodness, and for His wonderful works to the children of men!” Psalm 107:13-15

.

Read this entire Psalm 107! This wonderful psalm reveals just how intimately God has been involved in the affairs of men!

A TIME OF TROUBLE

.https://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:Boston_Marathon_explosions_(8652877581).jpg

But just before the end, Almighty God is going to allow mankind to experience how things will go, when God is no longer helping!

.

And sad to say, that day has already arrived! This is why we’re now beginning to see so many incredible horrors and unthinkable atrocities around the world!

.

http://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:NOMG01ThankGodForSatan.jpgThis is why our governments are doing so many crazy things that make little or no sense!

.

This is why courts are handing down unjust decisions which also make little sense!

.

This is why our government is committing financial suicide with the economy!

.

https://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:Shiite_Muslims_executed_by_ISIS.png

This is why the most unthinkable crimes are now being committed!

.

This is why the government and schools are promoting sexual perversions as if they are good and wonderful!

WILL CONTINUE TO GET WORSE!

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

Yes, we have reached the day when God has arisen to shake the earth mightily!

.

Oh yes, things are going to get worse! Much worse! Judgment Day is progressive!

.

But we, the ungrateful inhabitants of the earth must know through first-hand experience just how intimately involved He has been in our lives in the past!

.

Oh yes, it’s going to get even worse than it now is!

GOOD NEWS!

.

http://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:People_on_Times_Square.jpgThere is some very Good News! Even though God has given up this world, He is still saving individuals!

.

And the invitation is now going out to every unsaved man, woman, and child…“And I (God) will show wonders in the heavens…before the great and the terrible day of the LORD come. And it shall come to pass, that whosoever shall call on the name of the LORD shall be delivered:” Joel 2:30-32

.

As we look around at all the mayhem and confusion which is currently flooding the world, God is giving us a wake-up call to turn away from this doomed planet, and return to the Lord before it’s too late!

.

And it shall come to pass, that whosoever shall call on the name of the LORD shall be delivered…” Joel 2:32

TODAY’S FEATURED HEAVENLY SIGN

.

 

.

LOOSING THE BANDS OF ORION 

.

God spoke several times of Orion, in Scripture. His question to Job was a very mystifying question, to say the least… “Canst thou…loose the bands of Orion?” Job 38:31. Such a strange question, indeed! How could a constellation have its bands loosed, much less, even have bands? Puzzling, puzzling!

.

But now, He is revealing this bright and beautiful constellation in a way that has never before been seen. God Himself is loosing Orion’s bands, as He is just now unraveling this age-old mystery. And we are beginning to understand that this most infamous of all constellations is nothing less than a remarkable metaphor concerning Jesus.

MICHAEL, THE SOLDIER

.

.

Last is Michael the Soldier, who battles against the Dragon: “And there was war in heaven: Michael and his angels fought against the dragon; and the dragon fought and his angels, And prevailed not; neither was their place found any more in heaven.” Revelation 12:7, 8.

.

Contrary to popular opinion, Michael here represents Christ as He battles this dragon. This will be adequately proven in this article and in various other sections of this website. No, Christ is not merely an angel. Christ is very eternal God. But Christ is often represented as various entities, such as a rose, or a burning bush, as well as many others things in the Bible.
