“TROUBLED ON EVERY SIDE…WE ARE PERPLEXED”http://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:NOMG01ThankGodForSatan.jpg

2nd Corinthians 4:8

.

The deteriorating conditions all around us are perplexing to say the least! Many things just don’t make sense anymore.

.

And truth-be-told, many people are afraid to admit that this old world looks as if it’s headed for a state of anarchy, or even complete annihilation!

“GOD HAS GIVEN THEM UP”

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

.

But for those who trust the Bible, there is an answer for why all this confusion. If one turns to the Epistle to the Romans, God addresses this issue right there in the first chapter.

.

You see, after mentioning a hopeless condition of mankind, God says three times… “Wherefore God also gave them up to uncleanness through the lusts of their own hearts, to dishonour their own bodies between themselves:,”, and also “For this cause God gave them up unto vile affections:”, and also… “God gave them over to a reprobate mind, to do those things which are not convenient; ” Romans 1:24, 26, 28 (for complete quote, click here).

.

So what do these three verses have in common, beside the fact that they are all three found in the 1st chapter of the Letter to the Romans? They all say that “God gave them up”.

“IF THAT NATION…TURN FROM THEIR EVIL, I WILL REPENT OF THE EVIL THAT I THOUGHT TO DO UNTO THEM”

Jeremiah 18:8

http://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:Cole_Thomas_The_Course_of_Empire_Destruction_1836.jpg

.

And one need not look far to see this principle carried out in the great societies throughout history.

.

When sexual perversions and other types of immorality begin to prevail in a society, these abominations have been the harbinger of certain doom for that society.

.

Just look at Sodom, Babylon, Rome, Greece and even the city of Pompeii, Italy. Edward Gibbon, author of the infamous “Decline & Fall of the Roman Empire” listed the 5 reasons he saw as main contributing factors for the deterioration and fall of the Roman Empire. And in this society, those exact same 5 elements prevail right here in America! (Click to read the 5 reasons)

NOT JUST A LOCAL SITUATION!

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

.

But even though we most definitely see this same debauchery gaining greater sway over our society, the really harrowing reality is that this immorality is a growing phenomenon in just about every nation on Earth!

.

So what does that tell us? That God has given up on the nations?

.

Yes, this is definitely a wake-up call that God is withdrawing His divine protection from the nations.

.

Oh yes, God is still saving individuals. But it appears that we have reached the time of the end! It appears that we are entering into the climactic finale to this grand drama of the ages.

.

The signs of times are now sounding the clarion trumpet call: “Prepare to meet thy God”

JOEL NOW SOUNDING THE ALARM!

.Joel the Prophet www.wikipaintings.com public domain

Now when God gives a nation over to licentiousness, it spells certain doom for that nation, unless they repent.

.

But if God gives up ALL the nations of the world to wickedness and perverseness, then what is the logical conclusion?

.

The entire world is doomed, except they repent.

“THE DAY OF THE LORD IS AT HAND!”

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

Listen, dear soul, do you or I hold out any hope that all the nations of this world are going to repent of their immorality? Well if we don’t hold out hope, then there is one thing we can count on!

.

Listen… “Alas for the day! for the day of the LORD is at hand, and as a destruction from the Almighty shall it come…Blow ye the trumpet in Zion, and sound an alarm in my holy mountain: let all the inhabitants of the land tremble: for the day of the LORD cometh, for it is nigh at hand; A day of darkness and of gloominess, a day of clouds and of thick darkness… Multitudes, multitudes in the valley of decision: for the day of the LORD is near in the valley of decision.” Joel 1:15, 2:1, 2, 3:14.

.

The Lord is doing His people a great favor, by letting this world fall into sin, immorality and lawlessness. It is a wake-up call to the Church. It is a loud clarion trumpet call, sounding the alarm of war…to a Church which has been lulled asleep by the many voices which cry… “Peace, peace; when there is no peace” Jeremiah 6:14.

THE GOOD NEWS

http://www.muskegonartmuseum.org/collections-gallery/gallery

.

The very Good News is that in times of trouble, the Lord provides a place of refuge.

.

Listen… “Come, My people, enter thou into thy chambers, and shut thy doors about thee: hide thyself as it were for a little moment, until the indignation be overpast. For, behold, the LORD cometh out of his place to punish the inhabitants of the earth for their iniquity: the earth also shall disclose her blood, and shall no more cover her slain.” Isaiah 26:20, 21

.

Yes, it is our privilege to run to the Lord, and hide ourselves in His almighty arms!

“THOU ART MY HIDING PLACE”

Psalm 32:7 & 119:114

hid

.

 

Listen again, as God reveals more about our hiding place… “For in the time of trouble He shall hide me in His pavilion: in the secret of His tabernacle shall He hide me; He shall set me up upon a Rock. And now shall mine head be lifted up above mine enemies round about me: therefore will I offer in His tabernacle sacrifices of joy; I will sing, yea, I will sing praises unto the LORD.” Psalm 27:5, 6

.

If we will only turn to the Lord with all our heart, and with singleness of mind, He may provide a hiding place of refuge during the coming storm!

VALLEY OF DECISION CONSTELLATION GROUP…

staples

.

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-most 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

THE VALLEY OF DECISION CONSTELLATION GROUP.

.

Valley of Decision & O Destroying Mtn. Constellations

.

They appear in mid-summer in the eastern skies in pre-dawn hours. These are made of Cassiopeia (mount on left), and various stars from the Andromeda Constellation (valley) Pegasus (Mount of Cursing (middle mount) & Destroying Mount (right)), and Pisces (Broad Way to Hell). The galaxy which appears to be climbing the Mountain of Blessing is the Andromeda Galaxy.

.

The above Wikipedia star-chart shows this amazing constellation group as it appears from June to fall, just prior to the winter constellation group. Actually, this Valley of Decision Constellations appear in early summer in the pre-dawn hours. (Editor of this website has sketched in this constellation group onto this above Wikipedia star-chart.)
