Valley Of Decision Now, Part 3: “Which Jesus To Choose?”

“Multitudes, multitudes in the ‘Valley of Decision’…

for the day of the Lord is near in the ‘Valley of Decision’.”

Joel 3:14

.

.

.

.

VALLEY OF DECISION NOW APPEARING IN SKY!

.

Now as we look into the night heavens in this month of August, the Lord has created a constellation group to represent this Valley of Decision concept! It appears as two mountains, with a valley between. One Mount represents the Mount Gerizim, the Mount of Blessings, and the other represents Mount Ebal, the Mount of Cursings, as spoken of in Deuteronomy 11:29.

.

.

Listen… “These (6 tribes of Israel) shall stand upon mount Gerizim to bless the people, when ye are come over Jordan…And these (the other 6 tribes) shall stand upon mount Ebal to curse;” Deuteronomy 27:12, 13

.

And so these two mountains represent the blessings which come to those who obey God, or the cursings which come upon the disobedient!

.

.

.

.

.

.

SATAN’S CHOICE “C” ALTERNATIVE KINGDOM

.

OK, so this is a really simple concept! Blessings for the obedient! Cursings for the disobedient! Not much to get mixed up with!

.

.

But Satan is not satisfied with such an either/or choice! No, Satan has made it his chief goal, to confuse the issue! And so he has created the societies of the world, to make it seem as though there is a third alternative! In other words, Satan has designed this world to be a place of exciting and intriguing people, places and things to do! It is a world of selfish pleasures and self-promoting ambitions!

O DESTROYING MOUNTAIN, BABYLON 

.

But if you look carefully, there is a third mountain. In this picture it is to the right. And in the night-sky, it is to the south of the other two mountains.

.

Valley of Decision w/names

.

You see, this third mountain is called, “O Destroying Mountain, Babylon Constellation”. It represents the kingdom of Satan, which he has created this world to be. Yes, Satan has done an incredible job of creating this world to be a sort of alternative choice to God’s universal kingdom of unselfish love! Satan, however, offers Mankind his own kingdom: a kingdom of selfishness, in which a person can “do his own thing”, as the saying goes!

.

The problem is, while God’s kingdom leads to life everlasting, Satan’s kingdom leads to destruction and finally, death. As you can see in this drawing, there appears to be a highway going straight downward to the Revelation 12 Dragon. This Dragon represents Satan. And you will notice a five-star wheel-like configuration, which appears to be rolling down that highway toward the Dragon. Well, that represents the Five Foolish Virgins, as foretold in Matthew, Chapter 25. These Foolish Virgins represent all those who begin the Christian life, but who still try to hang on to the pleasures and proud pursuits of this selfish world. Yes, this five-star wheel is rolling straight down into the “belly of Hell”!

.

.

SATAN COMES AS AN ANGEL OF LIGHT!

.

If only the Valley Of Decision were as simple as choosing between Jesus or Satan! But Satan has made sure the choice is very difficult! You see, the Enemy of Souls has complicated the situation greatly by raising up false gospels.

.

Listen… “For such are false apostles, deceitful workers, transforming themselves into the apostles of Christ. And no marvel; for Satan himself is transformed into an angel of light. Therefore it is no great thing if his ministers also be transformed as the ministers of righteousness; whose end shall be according to their works.” 2nd Corinthians 11:13-15

.

And so, the true Gospel of Jesus is not so easy to discern, especially in these days of high-tech communications! Yes, with just a simple click, a person can listen to just about any type of gospel they desire.

.

.

.

.

.

WHICH JESUS WILL YOU CHOOSE?

.

And so, this Valley Of Decision comes to us and asks us the question, “Which Jesus will you choose?”

.

Oh, is this above question surprising? Is there more than one Jesus? What does the Bible say about this?

.http://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:At_a_loss.svg

Listen once again… “But I fear, lest by any means, as the serpent beguiled Eve through his subtlety, so your minds should be corrupted from the simplicity that is in Christ. For if he that cometh preacheth another Jesus, whom we have not preached, or if ye receive another spirit, which ye have not received, or another gospel, which ye have not accepted, ye might well bear with him.” 2nd Corinthians 11:3, 4

.

Yes, as this above passage reveals, Satan has greatly obliterated the “simplicity that is in Christ” And so, by impersonating Christ, Satan comes as an angel of light, inspiring his “ministers of Righteousness”, to take control of as many pulpits as he possibly can!

AGAIN, WHAT JESUS WILL YOU CHOOSE?http://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:At_a_loss.svg

.

And so, as a result, there is no shortage of Jesus’, which one can choose to serve.

.

And so, the Valley Of Decision comes, and asks each of us the question: “Which Jesus will you choose to serve?”

.

Will I choose a Earthly Prosperity Jesus? A Name-it-and-Claim-it Jesus?

.

.

Or maybe a “Respectable Jesus”? Yes, a Jesus which is found in Church politics and committees and board meetings, and humanitarian projects.

.http://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:Santa's_Portrait_TNast_1881.jpg

Or maybe a “Santa Claus Jesus”? Yes, a kindly old gent, who gives a wink and nod, no matter what selfish pursuit I may desire!

.

.

Or maybe a “good-works Jesus”? That way, I don’t have to die-to-self. I can just pay my tithes, go to church each week, do some good works and still go after this selfish, materialistic world!

.

Or maybe a “sensual Jesus”? Just sing some sensual praise songs, wave my hands in the air, close my eyes, and utter some verbal “praises”. That way, I can still live my selfish life, and mingle with unbelievers!

.

Maybe an “anything-goes Jesus”? This Jesus allows me to pursue just about any lifestyle I wish!

.

Or maybe a “dashboard Jesus”? That way, I can put Jesus and the other saints on a pedestal, and simply pay homage to them, instead of following Jesus!

.

Or maybe a “cultic Jesus”? Yes, this Jesus is found by attending some little group, which gathers themselves http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:David_Koresh.jpgtogether and separates themselves from all others, by wearing uniforms, engaging in outward forms of bodily austerity, and looking down the nose at everybody else.

.

Now the true Jesus is not the center-piece of such a gospel. No, but rather, they have taken some portion of the Daniel or Revelation, and made a mountain-out-of-a-molehill, by transforming those passages into the center-piece of their gospel, instead of Jesus! But commonly they consider themselves the 144,000, and everyone else is lost! Quite often, this group is led by some proud individual with a Christ-complex, thus demanding supreme homage from them, eventually taking them out to live together on some community. And to keep them held fast in bondage this leader threatens them with Lake-of-Fire destruction, should any one of his followers reject his teachings! Nor are they allowed to talk to outsiders for fear of being convinced of their errors.

Or maybe a “community-action Jesus”.

.

.

This Jesus converts the concept of true worship down to the level of a community center or fraternal order. In other words, church becomes a community center which keeps everyone busy with weddings, baby showers, summer camp-outs, Wednesday night bingo, sports teams, and all this followed by a once-a-week harmless sermon, embedded in the audience engaging in repetitive chants, known as “worship” music.

THE TRUE JESUS

Well finally there is the Jesus of the Bible! Why not choose Him?

.

This is the true Jesus which calls us to forsake this selfish world and come and follow Him.

.

Yes, this Jesus promises to come live within our heart and perform a work of regeneration, in which we become changed into His image.

.

Yes, this is the Jesus to choose to follow!

TODAY’S FEATURED HEAVENLY SIGN

“Multitudes, multitudes in the ‘Valley of Decision’…

for the day of the Lord is near in the ‘Valley of Decision’.”

Joel 3:14

.

AT THE CROSSROADS OF LIFE…

.All Roads Lead To Rome (Except One) Public Domain www.signsofheaven.org

As we all know, life is made up of one decision after another. Some are of little consequence. Others are more important. And then there are those times which require life-changing decisions.

.

The Bible speaks of the Valley of Decision…“Multitudes, multitudes in the ‘Valley of Decision’…for the day of the Lord is near in the ‘Valley of Decision’.”  Joel 3:14. Of course, this valley is a spiritual concept and not a literal place.

.

But God has inscribed this very truth in the heavens. It is called “The Valley of Decision” Constellation. It speaks of that valley that each person must walk through.

.

.

.

.

.

LOCATING THIS CONSTELLATION GROUP…

.

Look eastward in the early summer through fall. Find the Cassiopeia Constellation. Cassiopeia is the Mount of Blessing. 

Valley of Decision + O Destroying Mountain Constellation Group

.

 

In the sketch, it is the farthest mountain to the left. In the sky, it is the northern-most of these three mountains when facing eastward. It resembles a pyramid. Then find the next pyramid to its right (south). Then go a little further south to the next third pyramid. The third snow-cap is the Destroying Mountain Constellation. These three pyramids are the snow-capped portion of these three mountains in this sketch. (of course, you won’t see the snow-caps in the sky. They are just an embellishment in this sketch to present a concept-EDITOR).                                                                                                  .

“Come, and let us go up to the mountain of the LORD, and to the house of the God of Jacob; and he will teach us of his ways, and we will walk in his paths: for the law shall go forth of Zion, and the word of the LORD from Jerusalem.” Micah 4:1, 2

.

Valley of Decision & O Destroying Mtn. Constellations

.

THE VALLEY OF DECISION CONSTELLATION GROUP. They appear in mid-summer in the eastern skies in pre-dawn hours. These are made of Cassiopeia (mount on left), and various stars from the Andromeda Constellation (valley) Pegasus (Mount of Cursing (middle mount) & Destroying Mount (right)), and Pisces (Broad Way to Hell). The galaxy which appears to be climbing the Mountain of Blessing is the Andromeda Galaxy

.

The above Wikipedia star-chart shows this amazing constellation group as it appears from June to fall, just prior to the winter constellation group. Actually, this Valley of Decision Constellations appear in early summer in the pre-dawn hours. (Editor of this website has sketched in this constellation group onto this above Wikipedia star-chart.)
