THE DEAL OF ALL DEALS!

.

.

.

.

Can you imagine what would happen if a new car dealership put an ad on TV saying that they would take in your broken-down old jalopy of a car, in trade for a brand new deluxe Rolls Royce limousine?http://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:Rolls_Royce_200EX_%27Ghost%27_-_Flickr_-_The_Car_Spy_(2).jpg

.

And you wouldn’t even owe them a nickel extra!?

.

Well, as you can well-imagine, there would be a mob surrounding that dealership, in less than ten minutes, frantically trying to make that straight-across trade!

.

But who would be crazy enough to do such a thing?

GOD IS DOING JUST THAT!

Well, in essence, that is exactly what God is offering each and every person on this worn-out old planet!

.

Yes, that’s right!

.

God is offering to anyone, a chance to trade in this worn-out, hopeless jalopy-of-a-world, for a world that will never wear out!

A BRAND-NEW JOY-EVERLASTING WORLD!

.

Yes, the Lord has been offering us a really great deahttp://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:ThomasCole-Pilgrim_Cross_End.jpgl!

.

That’s right, God wants us to trade-in this horrible, worn-out old jalopy-of-a-world, for a straight-across trade for a world that is just the mirror-opposite of this world!

.

And in that soon-coming world, there won’t be any wars. Nor will there be any murders, or rapes, or addictions, or homelessness, or thefts, or perversions, or any of the really awful stuff that goes on in this old world!

A LAND FLOWING WITH MILK & HONEY

.

And that Promised Land awaits our arrival!

.

And it is a good land!

.

A land flowing with milk and honey, and orchards and vineyards and hills and valleys, and rivers and trees, and children playing, without care or danger!

.

And the really wonderful thing is, that this coming world will never grow old! And we will be forever young!

.

But in order for us to make that trade, we have to trade-in this world of selfishness.

.

And that’s just too much for most people to part with! That’s right! We love our selfish little ways! We love our comfortable life. We don’t want to give up our self-indulgences in order to follow Jesus! We are like that rich young ruler, who didn’t mind keeping some rules. But like him, we just don’t want to “go and sell what you have, and give to the poor, and ye shall have treasure in Heaven, and come and follow Me”. We don’t want to trade in this old jalopy-of-a-world!

“OLD WILY’S” CAR LOT!

.

And so, like that rich young ruler, who walked away from Jesus’ invitatFalse Prophetion, we too turn away!

.

But then we spot a car-lot across the street! Yes, just over there is another car dealer! And he tells us that we can have that same deluxe Rolls Royce, and keep our old jalopy too!

.

Yes, that wily serpent-of-old, makes us believe that we can serve God, and still hang on to our old idols too! And the Devil tells us that we can have both worlds! Only believe, he says! You don’t have to give up all your idols! You can keep the less-offensive idols! Just believe!

.

And Old Wily has a car he wants us to buy. And you can keep your selfish old jalopy-world, too!

ALL ABOARD!gospel ship 

.

But the really Good News is this: God still stretches out His hands, in offering His incredible deal! Yes, we can still make that trade! That brand-new, deluxe joy-everlasting world is still waiting for us and for our family too! We don’t have to make this dying world our final resting place! We can make that trade, if we so-choose!

.

And the Gospel Ship is still waiting for its final departure! And there is room aboard, for anyone willing to make that trade! This dying world, for a world that will never grow old! A world of joy-everlasting!

.

Now, that’s a pretty good trade! Wouldn’t you agree?

TODAY’S PRAYER…

.

“Dear Lord, Help me to really see what a great trade that God is offering. And let me not be deceived into thinking that I can have both worlds! But like the apostle, Paul, let me lose all things, that I might win Christ…

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. In the sketch, it is the farthest mountain to the left. In the sky, it is the northern-mstaplesost 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
