As the Flower of the Field!

Today’s devotional are excerpts from this website’s article… “Flower of the Field Constellation”

“The voice of him that crieth in the wilderness, Preparhttp://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:Poppy_Field_in_Argenteuil,_Claude_Monet.jpge ye the way of the LORD, make straight in the desert a highway for our God…. The voice said, Cry. And he said, What shall I cry?

All flesh is grass, and all the goodliness thereof is as the flower of the field:

The grass withers, the flower fades…

but the word of our God shall stand for ever.”

Isaiah 40:3, 6-8.

.

This above passage from Isaiah speaks of the voice of “one crying in the wilderness“, proclaiming to us of the “vanity (meaninglessness) and vexation of spirit” of this fallen world: that is, he proclaims to the world of the worthlessness and destruction which results from a life void of the love and simplicity of Christ.

“THE VOICE SAID CRY…‘WHAT SHALL I CRY?'”

.

To tThe Flower of the Field Constellation Signs Of Heaven.orghe Jews of his time, this voice was merely a call to repentance.

But in truth, the voice of one crying in the wilderness, is an appeal for Mankind to simply stop, and pause, and ask ourselves the question: “Why am I running to and fro after earthly riches and pleasures in such a hopelessly dying world? And why am I focusing my affections so much on this lose-lose world, when there is something so much better, and so much more lasting…even everlasting?”

“THE GRASS WITHERS, THE FLOWER FADES”

.

Why is Mankind content to live only a few short years and then justThe Flower of the Field Constellation Signs Of Heaven.org die?

.

Our glory is as that fading flower!

.

Just listen again to that voice in the wilderness… “The voice said, Cry. And he said, What shall I cry? All flesh is grass, and all the goodliness thereof is as the flower of the field: The grass withers, the flower fades: because the spirit of the LORD blows upon it:” Isaiah 40:6, 7

THE FLOWER FADES…BECAUSE…

.

THE LORD BLOWS UPON IT…

.

If you go out http://www.flickr.com/photos/bdesham/1128626197in the springtime, your lawn may be full of those pesky little yellow flowers commonly known as Dandelions. And yet, if it were not for the weeds that follow, those little yellow flowers would no doubt be very welcome additions to our lawns.

.

The Dandelion does well for a short time. For aftehttp://www.flickr.com/photos/48244719@N00r a few days it is bright and beautiful.

.

But when a hot blast from the east blows upon it, it quickly dries up, turning into spindles.

.

This reminds us of the Bible verse at the top of the page where it says…

.

The grass withers, the flower fades: because the spirit of the LORD blows upon it: surely the people is grass.”

HOPE FOR MANKIND…

.

Yes, Mankind is like that flower of the field, which fades away.

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

Yes, we are born into this world and we grow until we are about 20 years old.

And then, we gradually begin to deteriorate. By 35 we have noticeably deteriorated. We’re like that flower of the field that begins to lose its petals. Another 10 years pass, and we have lost more petals. By the time we reach 60 years, we’ve lost most.

.

And eventually we die. And someone else is born, and we are like the grass that is mown down…

Is that all there is to life? To merely spend a few years under the http://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:At_a_loss.svgSun? And then just wither and die?

 

.

Our glory is like that fading flower, and our life is like the grass which is mown down?

A WAY OF ESCAPE!

 

.

But it doesn’t need to be that way. There is a way of escape!

.

You see, God has given us the “fountain of youth” so to speak.

.

And the Bible is that fountain of the water of life!

FLOWER OF THE FIELD CONSTELLATION…

 

.

This constellation group can best be seen in spring through summer in the southern sky just above the horizon. Like all constellations, it slowly moves westward through the months, appearing a little earlier each night. It also appears to move through the sky westward each night. It can be easily seen under any degree of darkness. In other words, you don’t need a very dark night. In the sketch to the right, the ‘Flower of the Field’ Constellation `is in the lower part of the screen, directly under the Cross/Scepter Constellation. The sketches in this site are approximate, and not 100% accurate. The individual stars have different brightness than seen here. But these sketches are close enough in order to find them in the night sky.

.

This constellation presents one of the most beautiful verses in Scripture. And yet that Scripture presents one of the most repugnant concepts (which unsaved Mankind has tried to elude for millenniums). And that concept is, that Mankind is like the grass that withers, and his glory as the wildflower that fades away. But God’s Word and those that love it will go on forever and ever!

FLOWER CONSTELLATION BOWS DOWN…

.

AUGUST 28TH, 2011

It has become apparent, on this date, that as summer draws to a close, this Flower of the Field” “Constellation appears to bend almost completely down. This occurs as it travels into the western skies. It somehow rotates in order to produce this effect. This is a very wonderful phenomenon…and Biblical too! After all, the Bible says “the grass withers and the flower falls away”. And that’s exactly what this flower seems to do. It almost seems to be bowing itself…in the direction of that bright and beautiful star, “Arcturus” (which represents Jesus). This would make sense. After all, Scripture states…

“…unto me (the Lord), every knee shall bow, every tongue shall swear… Bel bows down, Nebo stoops… They stoop, they bow down together… Listen to me… all you remnant of the house of Israel (God’s people)… which are carried from the womb: And even to your old age I am he… even I will carry, and will deliver you.” Isaiah 46″1-4 (condensed)
