For it is written,

As I live, saith the Lord,

every knee shall bow to Me,

and every tongue shall confess to God.”

Romans 14:11 

.

.

.

.

.

This above verse from Romans 14:11 is one of those Bible verses that adds a completely different color to that great and fearful day, JUDGMENT DAY!

.

As it says, every knee shall bow to Me, and every tongue shall confess to God.”

.

WHAT!?!

.

Every knee shall bow to Me (God), and every tongue shall confess to God?

.

Well, wouldn’t we expect that all those lost and damned souls would be shaking their fists at God as He pronounces their hopeless and eternal sentence?

.

After all, what do they have to lose by cursing God at that point in time? They’ve already received their just reward.

But what we need to understand and comprehend is the nature of what this world was all about.

“the eternal purpose which He purposed in Christ Jesus our Lord”

Ephesians 3:11

.

Yes, this Planet Earth has been a giant experiment in which God gave us a world of selfish desires and ambitious pursuits.

.

And He did this because He wanted us to experience selfishness on our own. Oh yes, God could have simply told us about sin. He could have merely warned us against the dangers and destructive nature of Lucifer’s kingdom.

.

But as we all know, there is nothing like experiencing something up close and firsthand, to truly discover what that something is really all about!

Psalm 106:15 

.

For example, God could have just told us about the dangers and destructive nature of a junk-food diet. But after living on a bad diet for years, we now can actually behold the detrimental effects and the resulting suffering and sorrow that such a poor diet eventually causes.

“I have seen all the works that are done under the sun; and, behold, all is vanity and vexation of spirit.”

Ecclesiastes 1:14 

.https://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:FEMA_-_14767_-_Photograph_by_Liz_Roll_taken_on_09-03-2005_in_Louisiana.jpg

And so it is with all the things of this present world. We humans have had enough time to try out all the inventions of this world. And for a season, we enjoyed those desires of the flesh, and those lusts of the eyes, and those proud and ambitious pursuits.

.

But in the course of time, we found out that all those things were “vanity and vexation of spirit”, as the Wise Man put it. Because, after our season in the sun, comes the next season of suffering. Yes, next comes the time in which we must “pay the fiddler”, as the old saying goes. And quite often, he comes at a very high price!

TELEVISION: WINDOW ON THIS SAD WORLD!

http://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:ABC_-_Good_Morning_America.jpg.

And now, with the aid of television, we can look over this planet and witness for our own selves, all the hate, all the greed, all the violence, and the sickness and sorrow, and suffering which humanity is now having to go through.

.

And so, it is no wonder that every knee shall bow, and every tongue shall confess to God…“Yes Lord, You were right and we were wrong! Yes, this world ultimately brought sorrow and suffering. This world is truly a valley of tears! And we have paid the price for our rebellious ways!”

“And an highway shall be there…called The way of holiness;”

Isaiah 35:8 

.

Well, the Good News is, that today is still the Day in which we may turn away from our life of sin and rebellion, and plead to God for His gift of Salvation. And a highway still remains open for all those who desire to begin the upward sojourn out of this lost and dying world, as we make our trek to a Land in which only those https://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:USMC-081218-M-4507D-001.jpgthings remain, which make for a happy and healthful eternity.

.

So please don’t wait to bow the knee and confess to God.

.

Right now is the best time for that!

7 STARS IMITATE THE CROSS OF ORION

.

.

Peter let down his Lord by denying him thrice. But God allowed this to happen, knowing that Peter would repent, later to become one of the zealous Followers of Jesus. Probably many Christians have let their Lord down in a big way in the past. And like Peter, they have repented, likewise to become even more ardent Followers of Jesus.

.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:Caravaggio_-_Martirio_di_San_Pietro.jpg

.

The Church, in these last days, has been flooded with every device that Satan could possibly conjure up, to cast across our pathway, and lead God’s sheep astray. And though the Church has been greatly hindered, God is about to purify His sin-laden people, who will finally lift up the Cross of Christ with such power and glory, as this world has never before seen.

.

And the Reader may just discover the way that he or she might also help lift that Cross up. And God has inscribed in the heavens, a picture of how the Church lifts up the Cross, as they imitate their Lord. So please read this very important article. And though it may take 30 minutes or so, it will be well worth the read.

LOCATING THESE TWO CONSTELLATIONS

.

This phenomenon begins in October, in the pre-dawn hours. It then begins a little earlier each night.

The Cross of Orion Constellation star-chart.

This Wikipedia star-chart to the left, has this Orion Constellation sketched in. You must locate Orion, when it is mid-sky, between east and west. You’ll be facing southward most likely, unless you are far south. Try to imagine it as a Cross on a steep hill. The 3-star belt of Orion becomes the crest of the hill. The 3 very faint stars that make up Orion’s head become the very top of the Cross.

.

 

Next, locate the 7 Stars Constellation. This 7 Stars Constellation is seen by facing northward. It stands upright a little later in the night. Eventually, Orion will lay down and no longer be seen as an uplifted Cross! Beginning in November, the 7 Stars (AKA Big Dipper) can be seen as a Cross a little bit later in evening.

.

When you are comfortable in locating Orion & The 7 Stars Constellations, then show a friend. This can be a great witnessing tool!
