The Greatest Mission-Field: My Soul!

.

.

.

.

.

There are thousands of Christian evangelistic ministries today.

.

.

From Internet ministries to Humanitarian outreach ministries, to health ministries, to children’s ministries, and even to foreign evangelistic ministries. There are music ministries. And of course, there are many TV and radio ministries.

.

There are plenty of ministries in the world today. And yet there are so many souls still in Satan’s prison-house of sin and spiritual darkness. With all the thousands of ministries, one would think that the inhabitants of the world would have fallen, by now!

GREATEST MINISTRY: A TRANSFORMED LIFE!

.

But Signs Of Heaven endorses this one ministry above all else: the ministry of a transformed life.http://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:Braet_von_%C3%9Cberfeldt_woman_with_bible_1866.jpg

.

Yes, there is nothing so effective as a totally converted soul! Such an individual has a far greater influence for Heaven than a whole army of Humanitarians!

.

Listen to the very words of Jesus… “Not every one that saith unto Me, Lord, Lord, shall enter into the kingdom of heaven; but he that doeth the will of my Father which is in heaven. Many will say to me in that day, Lord, Lord, have we not prophesied in Thy name? and in Thy name have cast out devils? and in Thy name done many wonderful works? And then will I profess unto them, I never knew you: depart from Me, ye that work iniquity.” Matthew 7:21-23.

.

So this passage reveals that on the day of Judgment, there will be many who were heavily invested in various ministries, that will be surprised to learn that their so-called “good works” were regarded by Jesus as evil works… “depart from Me, ye that work iniquity.”

BELIEVER OR JUST A “MAKE-BELIEVER”?

.The Pleiades: Mystery Babylon: Mother of Harlots

Now there is one glaring difference between a Believer, and mere “false brethren”.

.

And Solomon’s Proverbs brings out this distinction…. “Such is the way of an adulterous woman; she eats, and wipes her mouth, and says, I have done no wickedness.” Proverbs 30:20

.

Yes, this above proverb explains that those who are of the adulterous and apostate churches, are very content to remain in their self-indulgence. They have no heart to die to self!

.

But to purify our hearts and conform our lives into the likeness and holiness of Jesus, is the great desire of every true worshipper of God! “And every man that hath this hope in him purifieth himself, even as he is pure.” 1st John 3:3.

.

Now what does this truth concerning the purification of our heart have to do with today’s devotional? After all, today we are discussing the best type of ministry outreach.

FIRST CAST THE LOG OUT OF YOUR OWN EYE!

.

Well, you see, to overcome the flesh is our greatest outreach ministry!

.

.

We can’t think that God is going to bless our efforts to save others, if we ourselves are neglecting the purification of our own heart! 

.

Yes, Jesus told the Scribes and Pharisees… “Woe unto you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites! for ye compass sea and land to make one proselyte, and when he is made, ye make him twofold more the child of hell than yourselves.” Matthew. 23:15

.

As this verse reveals, a worldly Christian cannot bring in true sheep into the fold!

.

No, the world-loving Christian will only bring in more wolves, in sheep’s clothing!

But even though none of us have yet reached perfection, yet those who make their own “calling and election sure”, will be able to give a true witness to others. And this is the greatest commission we have from God: to evangelize our own soul!

TEACHING OTHERS ABOUT JESUS

.

.

Now, there is a certain ministry outreach that God might approve of. And that is a teaching ministry which requires us to read the whole Bible for our own selves.

.

Yes, in these last moments of time, the trembling child of God can begin an outreach to others, which necessitates that he or she studies the Bible to find out more and more about just who is Jesus, and how we can become more and more changed into His perfect and glorious image!

.

And so, by studying the Bible to find out more and more about Jesus, not only will we be helping others, but we will be helping our own selves in the process.

Now someone might object to this, saying, “Well, Bible study about Jesus and Salvation is just not my gift! I’m more adapted to humanitarian projects, or to Revelation seminars, or to health ministry!” Well, that’s all the more reason for such a Christian to begin a ministry which requires much salvational Bible study! Studying God’s precious promises is not optional!

ARMOR UP!

.

And so, dear soul, we must redeem the time, while there still is time! While there still is hope!

.

We need to be filling our hearts with the wisdom and knowledge that only comes from searching the Scriptures, with the intent of becoming changed into the image of Christ!

.

And it is now high time, that we get any and every unnecessary roadblock out of the way which interferes with our day and night meditation upon the Word of Christ!

TODAY’S FEATURED HEAVENLY SIGN

.

.

CASTOR AND POLLUX = THE NARROW WAY…

.

“And after three months we departed in a ship of Alexandria, which had wintered in the isle, whose sign was Castor and Pollux.” Acts 28:11

.

Most theologians interpret this verse to be speaking of two pagan gods known as Castor and Pollux. Beyond that, they are puzzled as to what significance do these twin gods have. Some believe these gods to be the patrons of safe ocean travel. Certainly God would never want His people to board such a pagan ship!

.

But there is much significance to Castor and Pollux. No, not to those twin-gods. But there are two stars named Castor and Pollux. They are twin-stars, and not twin-gods. They are the two bright stars of the constellation commonly known as Gemini. But as “Signs Of Heaven” points out, these two stars also happen to be the two brightest stars on Orion’s sickle.

.

And these two stars are also known as The Narrow Gate Stars. And if you will explore this concept, you will see that Castor and Pollux possess great significance…

.

“Enter ye in at the strait gate: for wide is the gate, and broad is the way, that leadeth to destruction, and many there be which go in thereat: Because strait is the gate, and narrow is the way, which leadeth unto life, and few there be that find it.” Matthew 7:13-14. Castor and Pollux represent this Biblical concept of the Narrow Way.

LOCATING THIS GROUP…

.

These two sketches below are the same picture, one with stars only, the other with embellishments. These stars appear more or less like this when they are in the western sky, just before they sink below the western horizon (please excuse the less-than 100% accurate sketch). At the top of the sketches in the center is the Big Dipper. But with other surrounding stars, the Big Dipper is known as Ursa Major or the Great Bear. But as this website points out, Ursa Major is actually the Revelation 12 Woman. (Ursa Major appears much larger in the sky than this sketch shows. But in order to fit her into this drawing, the artist had to depict her much smaller)

.

IN THE WEST

.

This most amazing phenomenon is seen throughout the winter. It is seen best when it is the western part of the sky. Orion, the Dragon, and the Glorious Horse are beginning to descend into the western horizon. And at this point it is apparent that the Woman of Revelation 12 Constellation is veering toward the Narrow Gate Stars as you can see just to the left of the mountain. A dark night is best for seeing this. It begins with the Woman of Revelation 12 Constellation going towards these two doors. The doors are each composed of two bright stars. The two bright stars that comprise the Narrow Gate are the two brightest stars of the Orion the Reaper’s sickle. The two stars that comprise the Wide Gate Stars (toRevelation 12 Woman chooses Narrow Way the right of the mountain) are the two brightest stars of the Wave of Water (AKA Auriga Constellation) that comes out of the Dragon Constellation’s mouth (for explanation of “Wave of Water”, just click here). The stars that make up the Narrow Gate are about one-third less the width of the Wide Gate. The two bright stars which symbolize the Wide Gate are Capella and Menkalinan. These are the brightest two stars of the Auriga Constellation. (For more information on Orion’s sickle, just click here, “Orion The Reaper”. )

.

Editor’s note: These sketches on this page are merely sketches. The stars are not in their exact place. But they are close enough to find them in the night sky.

SKETCH: EASTERN SKY

.

.

Here in this sketch is when these constellations are in the eastern sky in early winter. Satan spews out his false worldly ideologies, which many of these ideologies have a form of godliness. On the other hand, the Strait Gate (Narrow Gate) is composed of the two brightest stars of the Orion The Reaper’s sickle. God’s Word, the Bible is that sickle. The true Strait Gate is God’s Word, the Bible. As a sickle harvests the wheat, so God’s Word will gather precious souls to Him.
