Prepare Ye The Way!

.

.

.

.

.

.

John The Baptist came preaching the fulfillment of Isaiah Chapter 40… “The voice of him that crieth in the wilderness, Prepare ye the way of the LORD, make straight in the desert a highway for our God. Every valley shall be exalted, and every mountain and hill shall be made low: and the crooked shall be made straight, and the rough places plain:” 40:3, 4.

.

Yes, John came in the stark simplicity of an Old Testament prophet, calling for God’s people to return to the simplicity of God’s Word.

.

Because up till John’s ministry, the pure Word of truth had been greatly compromised with theological jargon, rules and holidays which had no basis in Scripture.

REMOVE THE UNBIBLICAL RUBBISH!

And so, when John called them to “make straight in the desert a highway for our God”, he was calling for them to get rid of all the non-biblical rubbish which had cluttered and made crooked the pathway of truth.

.

John’s message was the call to return to the purity of the Gospel: a call that went out to a people who had been living in idolatry and Babylonian confusion.

JOHN’S CALL GOES OUT TODAY!

.

Well, now that we are standing on the threshold of eternity, this same call goes out to God’s people.

You see, we Christians today are in a very similar situation to the children of Israel living in John’s day.

.

All sorts of doctrines, theological jargon, and holidays which are not found in Scripture, have cluttered and made crooked the highway for our God to return!

.

Yes, we have been deceived every bit as much as those Old Testament people, maybe even more!

OPULENCE LEADS TO SODOM

.

But in addition, we have been deluded by the Revelation 13 False Prophet BeastSatan’s Antichrist spirit in today’s world, who has created this opulent and decadent society, and caused us to go a-whoring after all the same self-indhttp://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:Genesis19-17.jpgulgent pleasures and ambitious pursuits which ultimately led to the downfall and ultimate destruction of Sodom!

.

Listen… “Behold, this was the iniquity of thy sister Sodom, pride, fullness of bread, and abundance of idleness was in her and in her daughters, neither did she strengthen the hand of the poor and needy. And they were haughty, and committed abomination before Me: therefore I took them away as I saw good.” Ezekiel 16:49, 50.

.

Yes, we live in pride and luxury, and encourage our young to seek after the same!

THE CHOICE IS MINEhttp://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:USMC-06831.jpg

.

And so, just like those who heard John’s preaching, we too must decide whether or not we will heed the call… “Prepare ye the way of the LORD, make straight in the desert a highway for our God.”

“FLEE TO THE MOUNTAINS!”

Constellation- Woman of Revelation 12 flees to the mountains Mark 13:14

.

The Book of Isaiah speaks of the days we are in with the following language… “In that day a man shall cast his idols of silver, and his idols of gold, which they made each one for himself to worship, to the moles and to the bats; To go into the clefts of the ragged rocks, for fear of the LORD, and for the glory of His majesty, when He ariseth to shake terribly the earth.” Isaiah 2:20, 21.

.

And so, here we have a very hopeful message from Isaiah!

.

And God’s people will repent of all our idolatry, and run to the safety of God and His Word in that Day when He arises to shake terribly the earth! (And if you have been following the horrific daily news reports, you are already aware that this terrible shaking is already begun!)

.

.

.

.

.

GET RID OF TODAY’S RUBBISH

.

And we are called to forsake all our unbiblical doctrines, and theological jargon, and holidays which have no authority from God’s Word!

.

We are to return to the simplicity and purity of God’s Word!

.

“And an highway shall be there, and a way, and it shall be called The way of holiness…the redeemed shall walk there: And the ransomed of the LORD shall return, and come to Zion with songs and everlasting joy upon their heads: they shall obtain joy and gladness, and sorrow and sighing shall flee away.” Isaiah 35:8-10. (condensed)

.

Isaiah speaks here of the Highway of Holiness.

.

And on this highway, there will be no more theologian-contrived jargon nor any archaic old church-traditions to confuse God’s people.

.

It will be paved with the pure Word of God!

THE NARROW & WIDE GATE STARS

.

These two sketches below are the same picture, one with stars only, the other with embellishments. These stars appear more or less like this when they are in the western sky, just before they sink below the western horizon (please excuse the less-than 100% accurate sketch). At the top of the sketches in the center is the Big Dipper. But with other surrounding stars, the Big Dipper is known as Ursa Major or the Great Bear. But as this website points out, Ursa Major is actually the Revelation 12 Woman. (Ursa Major appears much larger in the sky than this sketch shows. But in order to fit her into this drawing, the artist had to depict her much smaller)

IN THE WEST

Revelation 12 Woman chooses Narrow Way

.

This most amazing phenomenon is seen throughout the winter. It is seen best when it is the western part of the sky. Orion, the Dragon, and the Glorious Horse are beginning to descend into the western horizon. And at this point it is apparent that the Woman of Revelation 12 Constellation is veering toward the Narrow Gate Stars as you can see just to the left of the mountain. A dark night is best for seeing this. It begins with the Woman of Revelation 12 Constellation going towards these two doors. The doors are each composed of two bright stars. The two bright stars that comprise the Narrow Gate are the two brightest stars of the Orion the Reaper’s sickle. The two stars that comprise the Wide Gate Stars (to the right of the mountain) are the two brightest stars of the Wave of Water (AKA Auriga Constellation) that comes out of the Dragon Constellation’s mouth (for explanation of “Wave of Water”, just click here). The stars that make up the Narrow Gate are about one-third less the width of the Wide Gate. The two bright stars which symbolize the Wide Gate are Capella and Menkalinan. These are the brightest two stars of the Auriga Constellation. (For more information on Orion’s sickle, just click here, “Orion The Reaper”. )

.

Editor’s note: These sketches on this page are merely sketches. The stars are not in their exact place. But they are close enough to find them in the night sky.

SKETCH: EASTERN SKY

.

Here in this sketch is when these constellations are in the eastern sky in early winter. Satan spews out his false worldly ideologies, which many of these ideologies have a form of godliness. On the other hand, the Strait Gate (Narrow Gate) is composed of the two brightest stars of the Orion The Reaper’s sickle. God’s Word, the Bible is that sickle. The true Strait Gate is God’s Word, the Bible. As a sickle harvests the wheat, so God’s Word will gather precious souls to Him.
