http://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:Holy_bible.jpgThe Church community has long ago adopted a theologian-concocted hermeneutic which demands a literal interpretation unless that passage specifically demands a spiritual interpretation.

.

And so, the many articles on this website encourage Christians to throw off that false and unbiblical hermeneutic and begin to search out the true spiritual nature of those Bible stories and parables. And by prayerfully and carefully “comparing spiritual things with spiritual”, the Bible student can eventually arrive at the true spiritual interpretation of each allegory and parable. (see 1st Corinthians 2:13)

ELLEN WHITE’S BOOK: “CHRIST OBJECT LESSONS”

.

Now having said all this, the reader is highly encouraged to listen to the 16 minute audio introduction to Ellen White’s book, Christ’s Object Lessons.

.

This very short first chapter speaks in a most beautiful way about the Bible parables which Jesus taught during His earthly ministry.

.

And her lofty and poetic reasoning for Christ speaking so often in parables far exceeds what this website has been able to produce!

.

And so, each and every “Noble Berean” is highly admonished to listen to, not only this first chapter of that book, but also to each of the subsequent chapters as well, which are linked at the bottom portion of each day’s devotionals from today through the June 10th devotional.

THE HOLY GHOST RIDER CONSTELLATION

.

This newest Signs Of Heaven Constellation (Fall, 2013) is by far the faintest of constellations, but is a very incredible and awesome one in a number of ways (which this article will explain).

.Holy-Ghost-Rider in the Western night-sky

It is primarily comprised of the Camelopardalis Constellation (head and upper back), plus about 5 stars from the Cassiopeia Constellation (his leg), plus some random stars. It appears as an outline of a rider. Only the back of his head is detailed. And his back and the back of his legs are also detailed. Both sides of his arm are visible, and his hand is gripping the horses mane, and that is detailed by three stars (which are also part of the horse’s mane). The rider is in a position vaguely similar to a race-horse jockey. The two brightest stars in this constellation, are from the Cassiopeia Constellation, and are part of his leg. All the rest of the stars are very faint, and must be viewed on a very starry night.

.

Since this constellation has just been revealed, there may be more to this constellation in the coming months. But if you can locate the Goodly Horse in Battle Constellation, then you shouldn’t have too much trouble locating this Rider Constellation, provided you have excellent star-watching conditions. 

.

The above picture is not a totally accurate, but hopefully close enough to locate these constellations in the night-sky. Scroll down this page to see actual star-charts.

“HE THAT HATH EARS TO HEAR”

.

“He that hath an ear, let him hear what the Spirit saith unto the churches;” Rev. 2:7, 11, 17, 29, 3:6, 13, 22

As you can easily see, this horse has some very big ears. Of course, this presents a very big concept. And since this Rider represents the Holy Spirit, it is obvious that He is leaning close, as if to whisper His words in the horses’ ears. And so what is He (The Spirit) whispering in this horses ears? Well, primarily the messages to the 7 churches, found in Revelation Ch.’s, 2 & 3.

.

But not everyone has ears to hear. Listen to Ezekiel… “Son of man, thou dwellest in the midst of a rebellious house, which have eyes to see, and see not; they have ears to hear, and hear not: for they are a rebellious house.” Ezek. 12:2. Yes, the rebellion amongst God’s professing people was great, and they had all but closed their ears from hearing truth.

.

Well it’s the very same problem in the New Testament. Listen to Jesus… “If any man have ears to hear, let him hear.” Mark 7:16.

.

So this Rider whispering into this Horse’s ears is a heavenly picture of this concept… “He that hath an ear, let him hear what the Spirit saith unto the churches;” Rev. 2:7, 11, 17, 29, 3:6, 13, 22.

Holy-Ghost-Rider Constellation.

Now the great lesson to be learned, is that there are certain truths, which those who are rebellious in God’s house, will not be able to hear. And these messages to the 7 churches are those very types of messages, that many “Christians” just do not like to hear.

.

And so, what is the bottom line. Well, it would be a very good idea, for each and every one of us to humble ourselves before God, and plead with Him to give us spiritual ears to hear these deeper truths which God is trying to tell us.
