As The Flower of the Field, Part : “A World of Wilting Flowers?”

“All flesh is grass,

and all the goodliness thereof

is as the flower of the field:

The grass withereth, the flower fadeth:

because the spirit of the LORD bloweth upon it:

surely the people is grass.

The grass withereth, the flower fadeth:

but the Word of our God shall stand for ever.”

Isaiah 40:6-8

As one looks to the south, a great constellation commonly referred to as Scorpio, begins to appear in early spring. But God purposely created this constellation to look like a giant flower. Yes, in the springtime, when flowers of the earth begin to appear, so does this great Flower of the Field Constellation!

.

And if this is not amazing enough, as spring turns to summer and summer turns to fall, this great flower appears to bow down, even as earthly flowers begin to bow down and eventually wilt and die.

.

Likewise, as time races by, we too eventually bow down, wither, and finally return to the earth.

TIME SPEEDS UP!

Isn’t it amazing to watch an old television show or movie, and see glamorous “movie stars” start out with fresh and beautiful faces. But as we see more recent movies of these same actors, they begin to appear more haggard and worn! Yes, it was not until about the twentieth century that the movie camera was able to record the progressive down-turn of once lovely, once handsome superstars! And like never before, people can see how temporal and fleeting that our lives really are!

.

And let’s face it, the older we get the more rapid that time passes! It is like a locomotive that gradually picks up more and more steam, finally racing down the tracks of time, speeding towards its final destination!

GOOD NEWS!

.

Well, the very Good News in all this negativity is that we don’t have to accept the same fate as the little flower of the field! No, for God has created another flower constellation, known as the “Flower of Heaven Constellation”!

.

This is made up of several constellations, and appears at the end of winter, as the Signs Of heaven story ends. And this constellation has attached itself to the Altar Constellation, and represents all those who are redeemed from this dying planet!

.

Yes, even though we start out as the fading Flower of the Field, we can hitch a ride, so to speak, on the Altar of Heaven, the very same altar where the Lamb of God was once sacrificed on our behalf!

.

And by so-doing we will become like a Flower of Heaven where the roses never fade, but will bloom for all eternity in that beautiful Promised Land, a land overflowing with milk and honey!

TODAY’S FEATURED HEAVENLY SIGN

.

.

THE FLOWER OF THE FIELD CONSTELLATION 

.

This is perhaps one of the most amazing constellations that God has created! It truly looks like a flower, and appears to be blowing in the direction of westward. But as autumn draws near, this constellation appears to bow itself down, just like the flowers of Earth bow down, at the summer’s end.

 .

And these are not merely obscure stars! No! These are among the biggest and brightest stars in the night heavens!

Two Turtledoves-Flower of the Field- Cross/Scepter Constellations

.

The Two Turtle-Doves Constellation is also known as Sagittarius .

.

The Flower of the Field is commonly known as Scorpio .

.

But there is another obvious aspect to this constellation group. Notice that the birds are flying in the same direction as the flower is bending; it is as if the east wind is blowing these heavenly messengers…

.

“The wind blows where it desires, and you hear the sound thereof, but canst not tell whence it comes, and where it goes: so is every one that is born of the Spirit. John 3:8.

.

So here is another incredible Bible concept, written in the heavens! And God has spoken of these signs! Listen… “For ever, O LORD, Thy Word is settled in heaven.” Psalm 119:89

.

THE ZODIAC CONSTELLATION NAMES

By the way, it is not the purpose of www.theheavensdeclare.net to give any validity to the Zodiac or any pagan deities. But the common names of many constellations must be given, solely for the purpose of locating them on star-charts.

.

WHY IS THIS FLOWER POINTING UPWARD?

.

To the right is a star-chart from Wikipedia. The editor of this site has sketched in the Flower of the Field Constellation on this constellation commonly referred to as the Scorpio Constellation (plus a few other close-by bright stars).

.

Do you see the long blade of grass growing from the base of the Flower of the Field? This grass blade is made of the two highest stars of the Lupus Constellation, and the two lowest stars of the Libra Constellation.

.

As this Wikipedia star-chart shows, the flower appears to be pointing to Arcturus and the Revelation 12 Woman (shown in sketch below). Arcturus represents Jesus, as He leads His sons (and daughters) on a spiritual journey up a heavenward pathway, as is written… “Canst you bring forth Mazzaroth in his season? or can you guide Arcturus with his sons?” Job 38:32.
