You Can’t Fix Hell!

.

.

.

.

There is an emerging phenomenon in the Christian world today.

.

This fast-growing movement has been tagged as the Social Justice Gospel. And this look-alike gospel has a strong appeal to young people, for several reasons.

.

Society has become very humanitarian for quite some time.

.

And we have now reached the pinnacle of this socialistic movement, or so it seems.

But what’s wrong with being a humanitarian?

.

After all, there are a lot of hurting people out there.

.

And really, doesn’t the Bible tell us to clothe the naked, and feed the hungry, and set the captives free?

“THERE IS A WAY THAT SEEMS RIGHT…BUT THE END THEREOF IS THE WAY OF DEATH”

Proverbs 14:12

.

If only we would listen to the Wise Man… “I have seen all the works that are done under the sun; and, behold, all is vanity and vexation of spirit. That which is crooked cannot be made straight: and that which is wanting cannot be numbered.” Eccl. 1:14, 15.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:Jean_Fran%C3%A7ois_Millet_(French,_1814-1875),_Dandelions,_1867-68.jpg

.

This verse lets us know that Mankind cannot solve these problems. It’s futile. If you cure one disease, two more will pop up to replace it!

.

If you fill one belly, two more bellies will become empty!

.

If you oust one evil politician or ruler, two more will pop up to replace him (or her)!

.

If you start a club, or program, or church, or institute or even a nation dedicated to doing good, it is only destined to become a citadel of evil!

“MEANINGLESS! MEANINGLESS! ALL IS MEANINGLESS!”

.

“Meaningless, meaningless, says the Preacher, all is meaningless!” Ecclesiastes 1:2

.

Yes, this world and everything in it is meaningless! Jesus and His Salvation is the only thing which has true meaning!

.

Listen again to Solomon… “There is a way which seemeth right unto a man, but the end thereof are the ways of death.” Proverbs 14:12. Mankind thinks we can do it by ourselves. But our own ways are the ways of death!

.

Listen to Solomon’s father, David… “verily every man at his best state is altogether vanity. Selah.” Psalms 39:5. And so, as this above proverb states, our best efforts are altogether meaningless (vanity)

.

It is literally impossible for Mankind to solve the problems of this world! It is impossible for Mankind to do good!

.

Try as we will, it only does more evil in the end!

SATAN: “THE GOD OF THIS WORLD”

2nd Corinthians 4:4

.

We have to understand where we are.

.

This is Lucifer’s kingdom! This is Hell (Tartaroo)! And we are all captives in Satan’s prison-house.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:Martin,_John_-_Satan_presiding_at_the_Infernal_Council_-_1824.JPG.

So why are we trying to fix up Hell? Why are we trying to cure the evils of Satan’s prison-house?

.

Why are we trying to make this hellish world a nice place to live?

. 

The fact is, God has given the kingdoms of this world over to Satan and his evil angels, in hopes that the prisoners of this prison-island called Planet Earth, will finally get fed up with his selfish kingdom, and turn back again to God, to be cleansed from sin!

CLEANING UP HELL

.

The fact is, even if you could clean up Satan’s kingdom, just think about it!

.http://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:Inside_The_Peacocks_-_geograph.org.uk_-_601408.jpg

All you would be doing is making his evil empire appear to be full of nice caring people!

.

And as a result, it would become even more difficult to distinguish between the good guys and the bad guys!

.

And so, Satan doesn’t mind humanitarians.

.

Actually, he likes them!

.

They’re just doing some good public relations work on behalf of his Kingdom of Lies!

ONLY ONE TRUE ROAD TO REDEMPTION

.

And there is only one way that a person can actually do any good here!

.

And that one way is through the process called Salvation, in which a man, woman, or child renounces Satan’s kingdom, and begins to follow Jesus.

.

And only those who truly follow Jesus will be led by God’s Spirit of Holiness, to fully engage in the process known as the purification of his or her heart.

.

Yes, there’s only one true road to redemption! One way back to Eden! And that’s when the Believer is led by the Spirit of Christ to return back to the image that we were originally created in: back into the image of God, as seen in the face of Jesus Christ.

.

That’s it! That’s the only way!

TODAY’S FEATURED HEAVENLY SIGN

.

.

.

WHAT DOES THE WATER REPRESENT?

.

“When the waves of death compassed me…THE FLOODS OF UNGODLY MEN made me afraid. The sorrows of Hell compassed me about;” 2nd Samuel 22:5.

.

Winter Bible Constellations (darker)www.signsofheaven.org share-alike license

.

So this passage (and many others too) equates flood waters with the sorrows of Hell, with ungodly men, and with waves of death. And so then, by comparing Scriptures dealing with flood waters, we begin to see just what this Woman of Revelation 12 is fleeing from. Listen to Revelation, Chapter 12… “And the serpent cast out of his mouth water as a flood after the woman, that he might cause her to be carried away of the flood.” Revelation 12:15. As you can see in this sketch to the left, this woman is fleeing from the water which the Dragon is spewing, exactly as it says in Revelation 12. And so, by looking at various related Scriptures, we begin to understand just what this wave of water represents. This Woman of Revelation 12 is fleeing from ‘waves of death’, from ‘sorrows of Hell’, and from ‘floods of ungodly men’, as stated in Psalm 18:4.

DRAGON CONSTELLATION’S WAVE OF WATER

Dragon of Revelation 12 Constellation

.

In Revelation, the Dragon of Revelation 12 is described as having seven heads, ten horns, and seven crowns. However, the Dragon of Revelation 12 Constellation up in the night sky does not. But God has faithfully created this wave of water, in such a way, as to illustrate this same concept of the seven heads, ten horns, and seven crowns. Because this wave of water is basically comprised of ten stars. The main body of the wave has seven stars (#’s 1 thru 7, in the sketch), and the tip of the crest of the wave has the other three stars, (#’s 8, 9, 10). So in this wave, we see the same 7/10 numbering found in the Revelation description of the heads/horns/crowns of the Dragon. And this gives us a great clue, as to where in the Bible we should look, to find out the riddle as to just what or who do these 7 heads, 10 crowns, and 7 horns represent. Because, the Bible speaks very much about floods and waters as being associated with Satan (the Dragon). Listen again… “When the waves of death compassed me…THE FLOODS OF UNGODLY MEN made me afraid. The sorrows of Hell compassed me about;” 2nd Samuel 22:5.
