“Surely He (God) scorns the scorners:

but He gives grace unto the lowly.”

Proverbs 3:34

There is at least one Website dedicated to making fun of all the funny and strange looking people while they are shopping.

.

And so, these sites are filled with photos, mostly taken secretly, making fun of fat, weird, old and funny-looking customers.

.

And there are many people who don’t even like to shop in those kinds of stores, just so they can avoid these so-called “societal unfortunates”.

THE LOST BEHAVING NORMALLY

.

Now, for the people of the world, this proud mockery is to be expected.

.

After all, that’s just the world behaving like you would expect the world to behave!

.

Yes, mocking those who are the “undesirables” is what inhabitants of the world do so well, and quite often!

.

But on the other hand, the Christian can turn many unfortunate circumstances into blessings!

.

Yes, there are several aspects to all this, which a wise Christian can turn around to his or her benefit.

CHRISTIANS TO MINGLE WITH THE LOWLY

.

Listen to Paul’s admonition… “Mind not high things, but condescend to men of low estate. Be not wise in your own conceits.” Romans 12:16http://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:Hoffman-ChristAndTheRichYoungRuler.jpg

.

This above verse reveals much about Christ’s character, and about our own personal commission from God.

.

Christ, when on Earth, didn’t seek after the company of the wise, or of the rich, or of the mighty, or of the noble. No, as this above verse reveals that Christ condescended to the lowly, to the unwise, to the poor, etc..

.

In other words, Jesus would be very apt to be seen at such places in which the unfortunate, the poor, the undesirable, etc., would be found! Oh yes, Christ witnessed to the rich and noble, too. But most of his followers were the lowly of society! Yes, Christ definitely condescended to the lowly of the world.

“NOT MANY WISE…MIGHTY…NOBLE…ARE CALLED”

.

Listen… “For ye see your calling, brethren, how that not many wise men after the flesh, not many mighty, not many noble, are called: But God hath chosen the foolish things of the world to confound the wise; and God hath chosen the weak things of the world to confound the things which are mighty; And base things of the world, and things which are despised, hath God chosen, yea, and things which are not, to bring to nought things that are: That no flesh should glory in his presence.” 1st Corinthians 1:26-29

.

So this above passage reveals that it has been God’s good pleasure to do exactly the opposite of what the world does!

Yes, instead of choosing those whom society admires, God mostly chooses those who are not highly esteemed by society!

.

Well, in a sense, you could say that God sticks the world in the eye, by choosing the foolish things of the world to confound the worldly-wise!

.

And God chooses the weak things of the world, to confound the things which are mighty!

.

And He has chosen the base things, and the despised things to bring to destruction, the things which are highly esteemed by this world!

“FOLLOW THE LAMB WHEREVER HE GOES”

Revelation 14:4

.

And so, dear Christian, don’t we want to be wherever Jesus will be? Of course we do!!!

.

Then we simply need to follow the Bible admonition, “condescend to those who are of low estate”! Yes, those societal miscreants are exactly the types of people who have very little to lose, by becoming followers of Jesus!

.

And one of those places which attract those so-called lower elements of society, just might be a good place to hand out evangelistic tracts!

.

And those places would definitely be the perfect place to walk through and pray for each of the various lost souls, who might be humble enough to respond to the call of Jesus, to “Come follow Me”.

.

Yes, the world may not desire their company. And the world may mock them! But Jesus would take them to be His sheep, in a heart-beat!

THE PLEIADES

.

.

Then Job answered and said…but how should man be just with God?…Which alone spreads out the heavens…Which makes Arcturus, Orion, and Pleiades, and the chambers of the south. Which does great things past finding out; yea, and wonders without number…Can you bind the sweet influences of the Pleiades? Or loose the bands of Orion?” Job 9:2-10 & 38:31

The photo to the right is the Pleiades Cluster. Does it appear to you like an angel? Well, if it does, then you are encouraged to keep reading.

.

The above two verses concerning the Pleiades is what the Bible has to say about the Pleiades. But if you will read this article, you will discover that the Pleiades represents concepts which span much of the Bible. This is partly because Pleiades is a constellation within a constellation. And this double-entendre constellation presents perhaps, a picture of the greatest truth regarding the Church, found in the Bible. And The Heavens Declare.net will attempt to unravel this mysterious phenomenon in the night-sky, and will, hopefully, also interpret these two verses to show just what all this means, and how it might apply to our lives.
