ROCK OF GILBRALTAR FINALLY TUMBLES

.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:Nat_King_Cole_(Gottlieb_01511).jpg

A very talented singer once sang about this famous Rock of Gibraltar. Just listen…

.

“In time the Rockies may crumble, Gibraltar may tumble. They’re only made of clay, but our love is here to stay”.

.

These words would be very true, were it not for the words,“may tumble”. Because there’s nothing “maybe” about it!

.

It’s a sure thing that Gibraltar is going to tumble!

OUR LOVE IS NOT HERE TO STAY!

.

But also, the words, “Our love is here to stay”, is a very questionable statement as well.

.

Oh it would be a nice sentiment, if only it were true! But even if a married couple stays together (and the odds of that happening are about 50%), then eventually time takes them both away in death.

.

And the Bible plainly tells us…“For the living know that they shall die: but the dead know not any thing…Also their love, and their hatred, and their envy, is now perished; neither have they any more a portion for ever in any thing that is done under the sun.” Ecclesiastes 9:5, 6.

.

Yes, this passage plainly declares that even “Love” is going to perish…forever!

Well, perhaps that’s an overstatement.https://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:Blue_exclamation_mark.svg

.

Because if one is properly invested, then even one’s love will survive.

.

Let’s explain…

CASTLES MADE OF SAND

.

“Whereas ye know not what shall be on the morrow. For what is your life? It is even a vapor, that appears for a little time, and then vanishes away.” James 4:14

.

Life is so fragile. Even if a person achieves some measure of financial or marital success for a few years, all it takes is some unforeseen tragedy to cause his bubble to burst, and make his (or her) life come totally unraveled.

.

Listen… “And every one that hears these sayings of mine, and does them not, shall be likened unto a foolish man, which built his house upon the sand: And the rain descended, and the floods came, and the winds blew, and beat upon that house; and it fell: and great was the fall of it.” Matthew 7:26, 27.

.

The Bible tells us that there is one and only one firm foundation on which a man must build his life. All else is merely “sinking sand” as that old song goes.

THE PRUDENTIAL ROCK (OF AGES)

.

So what’s the solution? To be properly invested, of course!

.

You see, there is a financial company which uses the famous Rock of Gibraltar as itshttp://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:Prudential_advert_1909.jpg symbol. “Invest In The Rock. The Prudential Rock” is their motto, suggesting that their company is as solid as the Rock of Gibraltar. And, well, they have been around an awful long time!

.

Now the word, “prudential”, simply means, “prudent”, or “wise”. So perhaps they are a very prudent, or wise investment…as far as this world goes.

.

But if a person really wants to invest in a prudent investment, there is a Rock which will be standing long after the Rock of Gibraltar crumbles. This Rock, of course is the Prudential Rock of Ages.

.

.

.

.

.

PAYS LO-O-O-O-NG TERM DIVIDENDS!

.

Bank of Heaven

.

But those who are fully invested in that Prudential Rock of Ages will receive long term dividends. REALLY
REALLY LONG TERM DIVIDENDS!!! Like, FOREVER dividends!!!

.

Just listen to Jesus… “Therefore whosoever hears these sayings of mine, and does them, I will liken him unto a wise man, which built his house upon a Rock: And the rain descended, and the floods came, and the winds blew, and beat upon that house; and it fell not: for it was founded upon a Rock.” Matthew 7:24, 25

GIBRALTAR WON’T BE THE ONLY ROCK TUMBLING!

.

Yes, these pretty lyrics, “Gibraltar may tumble”, would be very true, were it not for the words, “MAY tumble”.

http://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:Gibraltar_(1).jpg

.

No, there’s no maybe’s about it! Because it’s an absolutely, guaranteed, 100%, sure thing, that Gibraltar is going to tumble! Just listen…

.

“And the heaven departed as a scroll when it is rolled together; and every mountain and island were moved out of their places…and every…man…said to the mountains and rocks, Fall on us, and hide us…For the great day of His wrath is come…” Revelation 6:14-17.

THIS WORLD: A VERY SHAKY INVESTMENT AT BEST!

.

Yes, that Great Day of the Lord is close at hand, when all those things we thought were solid and sure, will come tumbling down, just as this old painting below shows.

.

But for those who set their love on Jesus, and invest their life in the Rock of Ages, these following lyrics will very much be true…

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:MARTIN_John_Great_Day_of_His_Wrath.jpg.

“In time the Rockies may WILL crumble, Gibraltar may WILL tumble. They’re only made of clay, but our love (Jesus’ love) is here to stay”.

.

The Bible puts it somewhat differently… “And the world passes away, and the lust thereof: but he that does the will of God abides for ever.” 1st John 2:17.

.

So as this verse points out, the ultimate life insurance plan and prudent investment is to be found doing the will of God on that great and terrible Day of the Lord, which is near to come, by the way.

TODAY’S PRAYER…

“Dear Lord, Please help me to see the vanity (meaninglessness) of this life. Help me to desire to invest my entire life in something that pays off with eternal rewards. Give me that true love and those true riches which shall never perish..

TODAY’S FEATURED HEAVENLY SIGN

THE SIGN OF THE SON OF MAN IN HEAVEN CONSTELLATION

.

.

“Immediately after the tribulation of those days shall the sun be darkened, and the moon shall not give her light, and the stars shall fall from heaven, and the powers of the heavens shall be shaken: And then shall appear the sign of the Son of man in heaven: and then shall all the tribes of the earth mourn, and they shall see the Son of man coming in the clouds of heaven with power and great glory.” Matthew 24:29, 3o

STRETCHED FROM SKY TO SKY

.

In 2012, this constellation was revealed. It is comprised of nearly all the other constellations on this website, as they appear in the night-sky. The only way to really see this constellation, is to become very familiar with this website. This is because this incredible constellation spans both the summer and winter skies. This constellation is actually in a semi-circle, as it appears in the night-sky. These pictures, however, show it as it would appear straightened out.

.

There is an old song which goes… “The love of God is greater far than tongue or pen can ever tell; It goes beyond the highest star, and reaches to the lowest Hell

.

But the last verse of this song says… “Could we with ink the ocean fill, And were the skies of parchment made, were every stalk on earth a quill, And every man a scribe by trade; To write the love of God above, would drain the ocean dry; Nor could the scroll contain the whole, though stretched from sky to sky.” Now what makes all this so extremely interesting, is that this verse was found scribbled on the wall of a deceased “insane” person’s cell in a psychiatric sanitarium, upon removing his corpse.

.

And little did this “insane” man realize, that God had actually written His love and inscribed that love on the scroll (of the sky). And God had actually stretched that picture of love from sky to sky, just as the song-verse said.

.

And now God has revealed this heavenly portrait of the Son of Man, writhing in pain for a planet who cares very little for Him. (These constellations span both summer and winter sky, and this constellation in this picture to the right actually appears much more curved in the sky.)

.

And just like the Bible God has made these signs in such a way, that they are true enough for the Believers to believe; but doubtful enough for the scorners to scorn.

.

“With the merciful Thou (God) wilt show Thyself merciful; with an upright man Thou wilt show Thyself upright; With the pure Thou wilt show Thyself pure; and with the froward Thou wilt show thyself froward. For Thou wilt save the afflicted people; but wilt bring down high looks. Psalm 18:25-27
