The True Message of Revelation! Part 2: “Do Ye Not Hear The Law?” CONTINUED

To read Part 1, click here…Today’s Devotional – January 24th (The True Message of Revelation!)

.

.

.

.

In Part 1 (click here to read) it was mentioned that nearly 2,000 Years ago, Jesus gave to the apostle, John, a revelation, while John was on the island-prison called the Isle of Patmos.

.

And the name which God gave this message is The Revelation of Jesus Christ.

.

And indeed, it is a revelation of Jesus, and how He works with His people, in overcoming the world and the god of this world, the Devil.

.

And so, Part 1 (click here to read) highlighted a few notable verses out of Revelation, which may give us the key to understanding that marvelous message.

7 CHURCHES: US!

.

Now in the Book of Revelation is found the messages to the 7 churches of Asia.

And in those messages are found two common threads, which occur in each message. In each letter, is found the following two messages…

.

1. “He that hath an ear, let him hear what the Spirit saith unto the churches”

.

2. To him that overcometh…” Revelation 2 & 3

.

These two proclamations are found in each of the 7 letters.

SPIRITUAL EARS REQUIRED TO UNDERSTAND ALLEGORIES

.

But today’s devotional will only take our magnifying glass to the verses in Revelation which repeat the line…

http://www.wikigallery.org/wiki/painting_315362/(after)-Jan-Soens/Saint-John-the-Evangelist-on-the-island-of-Patmos-writing-the-book-of-Revelation“He that hath an ear, let him hear what the Spirit saith unto the churches” Revelation 2:7, 11, 17, 29 & 3:6, 13, 22

.

In these messages to the 7 churches, this admonition was given to each church, which seems to be the foundation of the Book of Revelation. In other words, the Book of Revelation those 7 churches each received a personalized message from Jesus, in which allegorical language was used.

.

And let’s face it! It takes spiritual ears to hear such allegorical language.

.

After all, listen once again to Paul’s admonition to the Galatians and the message that followed in Galatians… “Tell me, ye that desire to be under the law, do ye not hear the law? Galatians 4:21

PAUL REVEALS THE SPIRITUAL SIGNIFICANCE OF SARAH & HAGAR

.

Now, listen to the message that followed that admonition to “Do ye not hear the Law?”…“For this Agar is mount Sinai in Arabia, and answereth to Jerusalem which now is, and is in bondage with her children. But Jerusalem which is above is free, which is the mother of us all….So then, brethren, we are not children of the bondwoman, but of the free.” Galatians 4:25, 26, 31. Here, God is comparing this Egyptian adulteress, Hagar, to the apostate portion of God’s Church.

.

So by comparing spiritual things with spiritual, it is soon discovered that whenever the Bible refers to the “adulterous woman”, it is really speaking of God’s apostate people, while the “Jerusalem above” is speaking of true Believers. And so, no wonder why Paul asked the Galatians if they actually heard the Law! After all, by merely reading the Law, the Bible student would never discern this historical account to be a grand allegorical reference to the two portions of the Church: those still in bondage, and those who are free in Christ!

.

Well, this is just one example of the many allegories found in Revelation which requires spiritual ears to hear what God is wanting us to hear.

NEWSPAPERS & HISTORY BOOKS

.

But the problem is, that instead of studying the Bible, in hopes of unlocking the allegories, the vast majority of theologians and Bible teachershttp://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:Newspaper_vendor.jpg simply study history books, or with newspapers in hopes of deciphering Revelation.

.http://pt.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ficheiro:Old_book_-_Basking_Ridge_Historical_Society_(1).jpg

But rarely do they simply compare scripture with scripture, comparing spiritual things with spiritual to find out the true hidden manna veiled within the Book of Revelation. If they did, by the ear-opening power of the Holy Spirit, they would discover that Revelation is all about the Church and its relationship with Christ!

NO EARS TO HEARhttp://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:Holy_bible.jpg

.

So this is why today’s church-world has become spiritual Babylon, the City of Confusion. It is because they do not have ears to hear so much of what the Bible truly has to say, not only in Revelation, but also in so much of the Old and even in the New Testament.

.

Well, the Good News is, that it is not too late for any Bible student who considers his or her self to be a “Noble Berean” to begin to pray for ears to hear what God is speaking to His people at this present hour.

TODAY’S FEATURED HEAVENLY SIGN

.

.

.

“ARCTURUS AND HIS SONS”

.

So what does this verse, “there shall come a Star out of Jacob, and a Sceptre shall rise out of Israel”, have to do with us today? After all, this prophecy of Balaam (left) was fulfilled in the coming of the long-awaited Messiah, Jesus Christ!

.

Well, if a person will go out at night, starting in January, and continuing through the warmer months, they might locate the star, Arcturus. This star was spoken of in Job… “Canst thou bring forth Mazzaroth in his season? or canst thou guide Arcturus with his sons?” Job 38:32. This star is the host star for this Signs Of Heaven website. And the star, Arcturus, also seems to fulfill the previous verse as well…“…there shall come a Star out of Jacob, and a Sceptre shall rise out of Israel….” Numbers 24:17.

.

As earlier stated, this passage seems to find a double fulfillment, not only concerning Jesus, but also, as we look into the heavens. This star just happens to lead an entourage of constellations, which span the spring, summer, fall and winter skies, telling the beautiful, wonderful Gospel story. This is the only known place in all the Earth and heavens in which God has created a pictorial account of the Gospel. And no, this has nothing to do with the Zodiac.

.

But this revelation showcases the biggest and brightest constellations in the heavens, revealing an entirely different interpretation of those constellations from that of the ancient Babylonian and other pagan culture interpretations.
