Today’s Devotional – June 6th

It’s a Click-n-Lie World!

.

.

.

.

.

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

The prophet, Daniel, after becoming a victim of an unjust law, was thrown into a den of lions, as his punishment for praying to the Lord.

.

But as we all know, God delivered him out of the mouths of those hungry beasts!

.

Well, doesn’t it seem that our present-day society is getting more and more like Daniel’s day?

BEING FAITHFUL IN THAT WHICH IS LEAST

.

Now Daniel didn’t have to open his window, and pray.

.http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:Poynter's_Daniel's_Prayer.jpg

No he simply could have silently prayed when nobody was watching! Or he could have merely waited for the 30 days of that unjust law to simply expire. And then he wouldn’t have had to deal with those hungry lions at all!

.

But Daniel knew that he must be faithful in that which is least. Listen… “He that is faithful in that which is least is faithful also in much: and he that is unjust in the least is unjust also in much.” Luke 16:10.

.

Yes, those who are striving for Christ-likeness understand the importance of keeping the conscience from becoming “seared, as with a hot iron”. (see 1st Timothy 4:1, 2). And to keep the conscience tender requires obedience, even in the seemingly small matters of everyday life! 

.

Satan also knows this, and is working night and day to redesign society in such a way, that it will soon be all but impossible for the true worshipper to thrive. Hence will be fulfilled the following prophecy… “And that no man might buy or sell, save he that had the mark, or the name of the beast, or the number of his name.” Revelation 13:17

CLICK-N-LIE!

.

Well, just look around at all the things which are being thrust upon us!

.

Take for instance, the Internet. Whenever a person wants to download a program, there is a contract to accept. And most of these simply say, “By clicking “I accept”, the user agrees to the terms of this contract”.

.

But there are other downloads that say, “By clicking I acknowledge that I have read and agree to the terms of this contract”. And of course, the user discovers there is a twenty page contract written in Legalese language which is next to impossible to understand! And, for the people of the world, this is not a problem! They simply click, “Yes”, and download the program, not even giving a second thought to the fact that by clicking “Yes”, they have just lied!

THE EARLY CHURCH

.The Christian Martyrs Last Prayer - Wikipedia - US Public Domain

In the days of the early church, the evil Romans found out that they could tyrannize Christians by merely bringing a tray with an idol of some Roman god, and ask the Christian to sprinkle some incense on that idol. 

.

And if that Christian refused, then they would be left in an arena to be torn to shreds by wild animals.

.

And this became a great sporting event for the citizens of Rome.

LAND-MINES EVERYWHERE!

.http://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:Mines_warning_sign.jpg

Well, here we are, some 2,000 years later. And it seems as though the Devil is just now concocting a similar situation, in this high-tech world!

.

Oh no there won’t be any lions to tear us up! But Christians are finding that this society is becoming like some battle-field, in which the Christian must walk through a mine-field and not get blown up!

.

Have you noticed this?

SITUATIONAL LAND-MINES

.https://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:Inkwazi_Shopping_Centre,_Malelane_Superspar.jpg

Just take the shopping experience, for example. It’s hard to find a store that isn’t playing ungodly music. And when you go through the checkout stand, you have to carefully avoid the lewd pictures on the tabloids.

.

Or take the television! The shows and commercials are getting worse and worse! Or the Internet! You don’t have to seek out pornography! It seeks you out!

.

Or look at the public schools today, who are just now beginning to teach children that various forms of perverted behavior, are quite acceptable, even good; and now are even starting to encourage some to pursue such a lifestyle! Did you ever think you would ever see such a day as this?

SATAN’S MORE SUBTLE DECEPTIONS

.

But these obvious “situational land-mines” are just the tip of the iceberg! There are many other traps in today’s world, that we probably don’t even think about!

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

What about a job in which you have to pledge support for a labor-union? Either by raising your right hand, or signing a pledge-statement, you are aligning yourself with an organization which often uses strong-arm tactics to get you a pay-raise, and other benefits! So in effect, by pledging allegiance, you are supporting the unchristian values of that union, which, although you may not be directly involved with, but nevertheless are just as guilty as that union is! Maybe even more guilty, since you, the Christian should know better!

ORDINANCES OF MAN

.http://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:FEMA_-_33789_-_A_building_inspector_speaks_with_contractors_and_FEMA_officials_in_California.jpg

Or just try to start a private business today! You will probably be facing a mountain of regulations standing in your way! And most of these regulations are good. But the problem is that there are so many, that it begins to become a heavy burden!

.

Now for the people of the world, this is not such a great problem! Simply ignore the regulations you can get away with! But of course, the true worshipper has this command from God… “Submit yourselves to every ordinance of man” 1st Peter 2:13. Yes, the Christian who begins to trample on the ordinances of the land, is actually trampling on his or her conscience!

.

Yes, this society is fast becoming filled with more and more of these “situational land-mines”. And every time we step on one of those land-mines, we only further violate our Christian conscience. And as a result, our once-upon-a-time “tender conscience” now becomes “seared as with a hot iron” 2nd Timothy 4:2. And every time we violate our conscience, it becomes increasingly deadened to the point that we are desensitized to sin!

FRAMING MISCHIEF BY LAWS

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

The Bible says, concerning the world… “Shall the throne of iniquity have fellowship with thee, which frameth mischief by a law?  They gather themselves together against the soul of the righteous, and condemn the innocent blood.” Psalm 94:20, 21.

.

As this above passage reveals, Satan and his followers will unite to overthrow Christians, by the implementation of a myriad of laws!

.

And though we have enjoyed many freedoms over the past two centuries, it seems like those days are coming to an end!

NO COMFORT IN GOD’S HOUSE!

.http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:PS_Kr%C3%B8yer_-_Hip_hip_hurra!_Kunstnerfest_p%C3%A5_Skagen_1888.jpg

Now those Christians who finally wake up to realize just how dangerous and deceptive that this kingdom of darkness is fast becoming, will be disappointed to find that there will be little or no comfort or support from fellow church brethren! When the Christian awakens to his or her dire and grave situation, there will be no one in the church to turn to.

.

No the Christian will only have the Lord to turn to. The people down at church will only think of you as a trouble-maker or perhaps just a little mentally unbalanced.

.

You see, Satan has already seared their consciences to the point that they pretty much think like the people of the world! They are not faithful in the seemingly “little” matters of life. And they will counsel you to just relax and have a good time, and don’t be so nit-picky! But if you continue to be a “trouble-maker”, then it won’t be long until their eyes will lose all their favor toward you.

GOD IS FAITHFUL & WILL MAKE A WAY OF ESCAPE!

.

“God is faithful, who will not suffer you to be tempted above that ye are able; but will with the temptation also make a way to escape, that ye may be able to bear it.” 1st Corinthians 10:13

.http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/United_States_Code#mediaviewer/File:Uscatitle11.jpg

Now this devotional has just lightly touched upon this tremendously important issue. Satan seems to be working in every corner of society, to bury God’s people under a mountain of laws, and “situational land-mines”. And certainly, this will become a critical problem, especially for those trying to support their family.

.

Now having said all this, there has to be a remedy! There has to be a way of escape!

.

Well, tomorrow’s devotional will offer a solution to all this. And the reader is encouraged to read tomorrow’s devotional.

TODAY’S FEATURED HEAVENLY SIGN

.

.

.Serpent Constellation

 

A new constellation has been revealed, as of about May 29th, 2014. This constellation appears as a snake. Its body is comprised of stars from the Bootes Constellation, and its jaws are made of the four stars which Babylonians saw as the head of Draco, the Dragon. It also has a small single star for an eye.

.

Now in this constellation is a group of five stars, which will be called “The Five Foolish Virgins Stars”. These are located on the opposite side of the Glorious Crown of 12 Stars, from the Five Wise Virgins Stars. But one big difference between the two is, that The Five Wise are curved around the Glorious Crown, while the Five Foolish are curved away from it!

.

Now another incredible aspect to all this is that this snake/serpent is winding its way around the backside of this Crown. And it is traveling in a direction away from the Crown! And one really phenomenal aspect to this, is that each jaw (composed of two stars each) is pointing in two directions. In other words, if you drew a line parallel with these two sets of stars (the head of Draco), they each go in two directions: one leading to the Valley of Decision Constellation, and the other going straight to the Broad Way to Hell Constellation (AKA Pisces).

.

Now if one studies the Valley of Decision Constellation, it is soon discovered that the same concept, of the Wise and Foolish Virgins, is also depicted in this constellation group. The Five Wise Virgins being depicted by the Andromeda Galaxy, and the Five Foolish Virgins, looking like a wheel, rolling its way down into the Dragon Constellation!

.

Now, before this gets too confusing, perhaps we should dissect each aspect individually, to get a basic understanding of just what all this means.
