Two Flying Epistles!

TODAY’S DEVOTIONAL IS AN EXCERPT FROM THIS WEBSITE’S ARTICLE... “Two Turtle-Doves Constellation”

.

.

.

.

. 

“And He (Jesus) called unto Him the twelve, and began to send them forth by two and two…And they went out, and preached…” Mark 6:7, 12

TWO DOVES SYMBOLIZE WITNESSING

.

“And He (Jesus) called unto Him the twelve, and began to send them forth by two and two; and gave them power over unclean spirits;” Mark 6:7

.

This above verse from the Gospel of Mark presents this idea of the number “two” symbolizing witnessing (see “Mercury & The Image Of The Beast).

.

The painting shows Jesus sending out His Disciples, two-by-two, to proclaim the Gospel to anyone willing to listen.

“GO YE INTO ALL THE WORLD”

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

.

And capitalizing on the number “two”, God has created this Two Turtle-Doves Constellation, symbolizing God’s people, who are freed from death, so that they can carry the message of God’s love to fallen humanity (fallen humanity symbolized by the Flower of the Field Constellation. See sketch to the right).

.

Since the number “two” is the number of “witness” in Scripture, then this constellation speaks of the “witness” of these “Two Turtle-Doves”.

.

And speaking of sending messages, this “Two Turtle-Doves” Constellation is definitely sending us a very vital message from God! “Go ye into all the world, and preach the gospel to every creature.”

.

 

.

.

.

 

“TWO” = “ME & HOLY SPIRIT”

.

These Two Turtle-Doves have a greater meaning, when we really get down to the core message of the number, “Two”.Two Turtledoves (Sagittarius)

.

That is, the only true witness for Christ there can be is when “my witnessing” is empowered by the Holy Spirit. If I try to witness without God’s Spirit, there is no genuine witness. Nothing good can ever hoped to be achieved.

.

Listen… “For let not that man think that he shall receive any thing of the Lord. A double minded man is unstable in all his ways.” James 1:7, 8.

.

Yes, a double-minded Christian is in no condition to witness. That man (or woman) needs to be thoroughly reformed: completely changed.

.

And so these Two Turtle-Doves symbolize the real true witness, “the Believer & the Holy Spirit”, as they go through life together, witnessing at all times, and in every situation of life!

.

.

.

.

.

LIVING EPISTLES

.

And so it is with this entire “Summer Constellation” Group.

.

As the Disciples followed Jesus, they preached the Good News in every city. And it seems that God has given us this constellation group to remind us to do the same: preach the Gospel to a world covered in “gross darkness”. (see Isaiah 60:1, 2).

.

And we in this affluent society, can financially support various faithful Gospel ministries, here, and abroad.

.

.

.

.

.

KNOWN & READ OF ALL…

.

But even though the Gospel has been heavily preached right here in our land, there is much we can http://blog.travelpod.com/travel-photo/jeastty/3/1303829593/mall-witnessing.jpg/tpod.htmldo right in our own home, neighborhood and town.

.

Yes, even though our fellow town’s people have heard about Jesus, they nevertheless need to SEE Jesus.

.

And that’s what this society needs now: for us to purify our hearts that we will be more and more a “living epistle, known and read of all Mankind” (2nd Corinthians 3).

.

And so, by thus-doing, our transformed lives will be a living testimony which proclaims to all, that of a truth, Christ is in us.

GOD’S LAST CALL

.

So these Two Turtle-Doves are a sign of witnessing to a lost and dying world.

.

And it may just be that these Two Turtle-Doves are a sign of God’s last message to the world!

.

Yes, the Bible says… And there shall be signs in the sun, and in the moon, and in the stars; and upon the earth distress of nations, with perplexity; the sea and the waves roaring; Men’s hearts failing them for fear, and for looking after those things which are coming on the earth: for the powers of heaven shall be shaken. And then shall they see the Son of man coming in a cloud with power and great glory.” Luke 21:25-27.

.

And so, if these signs are a fulfillment of Luke’s prophecy, then this Two Turtle-Doves Constellation is a symbol of God’s last message of mercy to this world!

They appear in the southern skies, moving from east to west. They are best seen from spring through fall. This sketch is how they appear in the spring in the northern latitudes. In the southern latitudes they are more tilted. As they move through the night sky, the flower appears to bend down.
