FIRST BEAST RECEIVES DEADLY WOUND

.

“Little childhttp://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:Santo_Domingo_y_los_albigenses-detalle.jpgren, it is the last time: and as ye have heard that antichrist shall come, even now are there many antichrists; whereby we know that it is the last time.” 1st John 2:18

.

This above verse from 1st John warns that Antichrist were already in the world, even in John’s day!

.

And as the early centuries of the Church progressed, the European churches devolved into Antichrist forces, beginning a tyranical reign over those nations.

ANTICHRIST’S PROPHETIC 42 MONTH REIGN OF TERROR

.

And so began a long 1260 year tribulation (Forty-Two prophetic-months) against God’s people by the apostate churches of Europe. This Hell-inspired Church-State power was the fulfillment of Revelation 13 Beast which was to rise up from the sea (sea of nations).

As early as the fourth Century, Bible truth in the churches became greatly compromised, being replaced by quasi-biblical church doctrines.

.

At first, many Christians simply kept quiet about their love for the Bible. But through those early centuries, things got so bad for Bible-believing Christians, that they eventually had to flee to the mountains in the European Alps, and begin life anew in the safety of those mountain strongholds.

REFORMATION BEGINShttp://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:Avvakum_by_Myasoyedov.jpeg

.

And then, after several centuries began the great Christian Reformation, God raising up men, like Wycliffe, Huss, Jerome and others, who would fearlessly stand up to the priests and prelates of the apostate Church.

.

Of course, Satan likewise began his attacks against the Reformation, and this went on for centuries. At various times there was peace. But after some time, blood once again was spilled. The Bible was a much hated book by the apostate churches, and copies were burned, and that Book of books was outlawed.

GOD’S GREAT SWORD, THE BIBLE

.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:Caxton_Showing_the_First_Specimen_of_His_Printing_to_King_Edward_IV_at_the_Almonry,_Westminster.jpg

.

Blood flowed through the streets at various times during Satan’s tyrannical rule over Europe. But finally the time came for Satan’s Beast power to receive a deadly wound by a sword. “In that day the LORD with His sore and great and strong sword shall punish leviathan the piercing serpent, even leviathan that crooked serpent; and He shall slay the dragon that is in the sea.” Isaiah 27:1.

.

That sword was the Bible, the “sword of the Spirit, which is the Word of God” Ephesians 6:17. And along with the invention of Gutenberg’s press, the Old World was eventually flooded with Bibles, and the masses could now read the truth which those apostate churches had so greatly attempted to obliterate for so many centuries.

AMERICA THE BEAUTIFUL

.

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

.

But now a bold new land was discovered! And this sought-after haven from oppression, across the ocean, was rich with natural resources and raw beauty. Thousands of Europeans fled to the New World, seeking refuge and opportunity from the depleted and battle-worn European countryside. And America was also regarded as the ultimate answer for reformationists. It was the mirror-opposite of what Europe had become.

.

And God blessed America, giving it a constitution similar to God’s government: a nation dedicated to the ideals of economic, political and most importantly, religious freedom. Yes, America had a constitution and organization with Biblical root and foundation.

.

Unfortunately, the big problem to their idealism and hope in this new land was this: they thought that they would escape from tyranny by fleeing to this new wilderness. They didn’t take into account that there is a an actual and literal and personal Devil, who (with his countless minions), is at war against Heaven.

.

And though his modus-operandi in Europe was physical violence and economic, political, and religious oppression, he now had a brand new strategy and an entirely new arsenal, which he was readying to launch against the world.

FROM SCARCITY TO EXCESS

.

.

“…give me neither poverty nor riches; feed me with food convenient for me: Lest I be full, and deny Thee, and say, Who is the LORD? or lest I be poor, and steal, and take the name of my God in vain.” Proverbs 30:8, 9

.

This above passage from Proverbs 30:8, 9, lays down a very basic concept of life, namely this: that scarcity and want, tends to promote desperation, even sinful covetousness, while excess tends to promote self-satisfied complacency. The writer of this proverb realizes this concept, and prays to God for neither poverty nor for riches.

SOCIETY’S NEW INSTRUCTORS

.

And so, the enemy of Heaven wasted no time in beginning TV indoctrinationto launch his new assault upon the world, and beginning with this new land, he worked behind the scenes to flood this society with growing excess and decadence and declining morality.

.

And the Devil’s greatest weapon in his vast arsenal, has been, sad to say, these high-tech devices, such as television, and Internet. And though television was somewhat moral at first, yet it quickly devolved into a pool of vice and immorality, bringing down the morals of America, and the other industrialized nations.

FLOODS OF EVIL

.

.

And Satan well knows this concept too! And now that he could no longer hold back the tides of change, Lucifer would simply flood the Christian nations with wealth and materialism (i.e., Mammon), in hopes of preoccupying the minds of men.

.

And while economic freedom is a wonderful freedom, such a freedom (like all freedoms), demands great, personal responsibilities.

.

And so Satan, knowing all these principles, determined that as long as the pendulum was going to swing the other way, this Master of Deception & Destruction would make sure it would swing much too far the other way!

OVERCHARGED WITH THE CARES AND PLEASURES OF LIFE

.PICTURE: Unfunny Judgment Day Cartoon - companys-coming - revised

.

Now his goal was to keep society (and the Church) so busy with the cares and pleasures of life, that they would have little time or inclination for devotion to God’s Word.

.

While the first Beast kept people destitute, this second Beast would come in like a flood, bringing various types of cares and pleasures, to the point of wretched excess.

SO WHAT’S THERE TO BE THANKFUL FOR?

.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:Thanksgiving-Brownscombe.jpg

.

Now before we completely sink into the valley of despair at all this bad news, let’s take a moment to be thankful for the freedoms we still enjoy. If there are any faithful ministries to support, we still have an abundance of finances to give to such faithful evangelists.

.

And we can be thankful, that we can still speak freely about the Gospel to those around us.

.

Yes, there are many freedoms we still have. And we need, to our best abilities, to exercise such freedoms to God’s glory, before they are all taken away. “I must work the works of Him that sent Me, while it is day: the night cometh, when no man can work.” John 9:4

TODAY’S FEATURED HEAVENLY SIGN

.

.

. .

LOCATING THE DRAGON

.

THE DRAGON of REVELATION 12 CONSTELLATION . The Dragon Constellation can be located by finding Orion in winter months. The Dragon is to Orion’s left, and the Dragon’s mouth is right next to Orion’s shield. This Dragon’s mouth is the V-like constellation The Hyades Cluster, which is the very same constellation that comprises the head of Taurus the Bull. In other words, Hyades is also known as the head of Taurus the Bull. And Hyades is the mouth of this Dragon.

.

The tip of the Dragon’s tail is composed of that star-cluster known as The Pleiades. The Pleiades is actually in the shape of a lion’s furry tassel tip of his tail. The sketch below shows this Pleiades as the tail tip.

.

Revelation 12 Dragon w/text

.

Now with aid of a dark starry night, you may begin to connect this mouth and the tail with a very long body in an oval shape. The front and back legs are very well-defined with stars. The front legs are made partially of Taurus. The back legs and rear fin are made of the Cetus Constellation. But the long oval-shaped body has relatively few stars, but can been seen, howbeit with a dark starry night. The four stars of the front fins are made partially of Taurus. This Dragon constellation appears in the eastern horizon about mid-summer in the pre-dawn hours, spewing his flood-waters northward toward the Woman of Revelation 12 (Woman in Travail). The Wave of Water is primarily composed of the Constellation Auriga. The are two more less bright stars which are closest to the Dragon’s mouth. These two dimmer stars are also part of this Wave of Water.
