Mark Now Given, Part 5: “Freedom of Speech, An Endangered Right!”

“And that no man might buy or sell,

save he that had the mark,

or the name of the beast,

or the number of his name.”

Revelation 13:17

This nation was founded upon the principle of “Freedom of Speech”.

.

This was a response which this nation’s founding fathers implemented to be a safe-guard from the same kind of oppression that went on for centuries in Europe in which freedom of speech was not allowed.

.

And this very critical component of this nation’s liberty has survived for over two centuries now.

“BUY THE TRUTH AND SELL IT NOT!”

Isaiah 23:23

.

But nations rise and nations fall. And it is Satan’s purpose to bring us back under totalitarian control.

.

And so, we are beginning to see a growing intolerance of freedom of speech.

It is more than just a little ironically strange and weird that in the very place which became the centerpiece for protecting freedom of speech, has now become the centerpiece to stamp out freedom of speech!

.

And perhaps even stranger, it is the very same political party who have long prided themselves as being the arbiters and protectors of that freedom who are now applauding any media outlet or angry shouting mob which successfully squelches the free speech of their political foes!

HATE SPEECH?

.

Now of course, in this day and age, society cannot come right out and ban http://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:DDLI.pngfreedom of speech.

.

No, but rather, Satan has craftily worked in the shadows to enact seemingly good laws which supposedly help people by banning what has become known as “Hate Speech”. Yes, in the name of “brotherly kindness”, our governments are attempting to “protect” us by banning any speech deemed to be harmful in some way.

.

The problem is, just what is the definition of “Hate Speech”?

PRETENTIOUS GOODNESS

.

https://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:Censored_rubber_stamp.svgYes, much of this anti-free-speech movement is spearheaded by the same political party which once claimed to be the great defenders of freedom-of-speech.

.

But now, this same political party has become the greatest enemy of freedom of speech whenever that speech disagrees with their so-called “politically correct” agenda.

THE WORLD “FRAMES MISCHIEF” BY ENACTING UNJUST LAWS

.

http://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:DDLI.pngListen to God’s Word…“Shall the throne of iniquity have fellowship with thee, which frameth mischief by a law?” Psalm 94:20

.

Here is a prophecy which is just now finding its fulfillment, as society begins to enact unjust laws which will ultimately be used to silence the true Gospel!

THE GOSPEL OFFENDS, SO GET RID OF IT!

.

Unfortunately, it appears that so-called, “Hate Speech”, is probably going to eventually eliminate http://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:Avvakum_by_Myasoyedov.jpegthe true and unvarnished Word of God. In other words, because the Gospel of Christ offends many people, and even causes a few individuals to suffer supposed “anxiety”, the movement is now afoot to outlaw the Gospel from being publicly preached.

.

Even right now on the Internet, the major websites are already putting machinery in motion which will eventually ban any website that “offends” the general public.

.

And amazingly, a large segment of the population actually thinks this is a good idea! People have forgotten what happened in Europe during the Dark Ages. Schools do not teach this historical truth anymore to any significant degree. Satan loves a “dumbed-down” populace who are ignorant of past oppression and persecution through history.

“GOOD NEWS FROM A FAR COUNTRY”

Proverbs 25:25

.

https://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:USMC-081218-M-4507D-001.jpg

Well, the Good News is that those who realize that this great paradigm shift is actually Bible prophecy coming to fulfillment, can do something about it.

.

Oh no, don’t expect some church-wide mass repentance to solve our problems!

https://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:Angel_prayers.jpg

.

Rather, true repentance and genuine spiritual restoration is something very personal and private! It starts in the heart of an individual who truly feels the burden of his or her soul, and begins to seek a deep abiding relationship with the Lord.

.

This is the only way to successfully walk through the soon-coming fires of tribulation now being heated up…“Concerning the works of men, by the Word of Thy lips I have kept me from the paths of the destroyer. Hold up my goings in Thy paths, that my footsteps slip not.” Psalms 17:4, 5

LOCATING THE DRAGON

.

The Dragon Constellation can be located by finding Orion in winter months. The Dragon is to Orion’s left, and the Dragon’s mouth is right next to Orion’s shield. This Dragon’s mouth is the V-like constellation The Hyades Cluster, which is the very same constellation that comprises the head of Taurus the Bull. In other words, Hyades is also known as the head of Taurus the Bull. And Hyades is the mouth of this Dragon.

Revelation 12 Dragon w/text

.

The tip of the Dragon’s tail is composed of that star-cluster known as The Pleiades. The Pleiades is actually in the shape of a lion’s furry tassel tip of his tail. The sketch below shows this Pleiades as the tail tip.

.

Now with aid of a dark starry night, you may begin to connect this mouth and the tail with a very long body in an oval shape. The front and back legs are very well-defined with stars. The front legs are made partially of Taurus. The back legs and rear fin are made of the Cetus Constellation. But the long oval-shaped body has relatively few stars, but can been seen, howbeit with a dark starry night. The four stars of the front fins are made partially of Taurus. This Dragon constellation appears in the eastern horizon about mid-summer in the pre-dawn hours, spewing his flood-waters northward toward the Woman of Revelation 12 (Woman in Travail). The Wave of Water is primarily composed of the Constellation Auriga. The are two more less bright stars which are closest to the Dragon’s mouth. These two dimmer stars are also part of this Wave of Water.
