A ‘HIGHWAY TO HELL’ STORY…

.

.

.

.

.

Sometimes a person walks through Walmart with nothing but time on their hands! And that can be dangerous! Because one might stop and casually take note of what’s playing on their televisions for sale!

.

One night, the TV in their electronics department was airing a rock band in concert. This energetic band was performing some song. And the lead guitarist was doing a skit as the band played. This lead guitarist, ran up a stairway and when he got to the top it looked as though he was electrocuted. Sparks flew in all directions. And then he quickly descended, still playing, still getting hit by random sparks all the way down this fire-escape-like stairway, as if he was being chased down the stairs by some unknown entity. When he reached the bottom, he disappeared.

.

Then in a moment, the stage floor opened and up came this cage with this same guitarist inside the cage (still playing). But now he had horns like a devil. And then he threw off his English-schoolboy suit-coat, and now only had those short pants which the English school kids might wear in summer. And with only this attire he kept playing his guitar until this song ended. And all through this performance, the camera often panned the audience in the stadium, who were more than just a little enthusiastic, to say the least.

AMBASSADORS OF HELL

.

Now this devotional is not trying to promote the idea of anyone listening to this type of music. This is the Devil’s world, after all!

.

But this highly choreographed song was making a rather overt statement, that was hard to miss!

.

The stairway in the skit represented the path to Heaven.

.

Him getting burnt by sparks as he reached the top of the stairs obviously represents having a bad experience with Christianity.

.

Him getting chased down the stairs by those random sparks represents…well…getting chased out of church.

.

And of course after he later ascends up from Hell in a cage, with the devil-horns…well…this speaks for itself.

.

But this musically choreographed scenario is nothing new, of course. Just look at this very old picture showing two pathways! One leads Heavenward, and the other leads, of course, to Hell.

HELL ON EARTH! NOW!

.

And this rock group instinctively knows that you don’t need to die in order to go to Hell. You just live for the Devil, and you’ve already arrived in Hell: i.e., spiritual darkness!

.http://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:Martin,_John_-_Satan_presiding_at_the_Infernal_Council_-_1824.JPG

Now that’s really something, if you think about it! A group of unbelievers instinctively realize that Hell exists right now! Right here on Earth!

.

Now this is even more amazing when one considers that many Christians are not even aware of this fact, that Hell begins right here on Earth!

.

The moment a person becomes a captive of Satan (remember the cage in that musical skit?), does a person become a prisoner of Hell!

.

Sometimes the children of this world are more savvy than the children of light! (see Luke 16:8)

HUCKSTERS FOR HELL!

.

Watching this skit by this rock group,would make any Christian appalled at what was obviously a condemnation of Christianity, and an advertisement for Satan’s alternative lifestyle! Anyone with children or grandchildren, would be really fearful that such an enticing plea was being made for living one’s life for sin and Satan.

.

Anyone might think to himself… “These poor deluded people really don’t realize just what depths of evil they’re dabbling in and promoting, when they promote Satan! Nor do they realize that some day they’re going to stand before a Holy God and answer for these things, and for all the young people they caused to follow their satanic ways! Or maybe they do!” 

.

.

SOMETIMES EVEN THE DEVIL GETS IT RIGHT!

 

Valley of Decision w/names

.

Perhaps one of the points to this story is that while they were doing this skit, this pagan rock group was unwittingly presenting a Bible truth in their little skit. They were unknowingly giving a scenario which is written, not only in the Bible, but is also written in the heavens!

.

And this Valley of Decision Constellation which lies between the Summer and Winter Constellations gives basically the same skit! But it is written in Heaven! So, this sketch to the right shows this third mountain (right) with a road that goes straight down to the Dragon (the Devil). In essence, this is the Broad Way to Hell! (“The Highway to Hell is broad, and its gate is wide for the many who choose that way.” Matthew 7:13 NLT).

.

Of course, it should be no surprise that the Devil knows all about this constellation. And so if the Devil’s own followers sometimes speak truth concerning this, or truth concerning any other thing, should not be a surprise to God’s people.

SATAN’S COUNTERFEITS

.

But Satan is the master of confusion and counterfeiting. He really knows how to prejudice the people! And of course, he has had thousands of years to interweave some of these counterfeits into the various cultures. But of course, in this instance of this rock group, Satan was just counterfeiting what God had already inscribed long ago, in the heavens, back in the days of Creation.

“NICE” PEOPLE!http://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:Lunch_Break_-_geograph.org.uk_-_1124457.jpg

.

Well, all this being translated into everyday life, there are many persons who decide for one reason or other, that they do not wish to serve God. Or perhaps, they simply fall back into a worldly lifestyle. And just like that satanic skit portrays, these dissatisfied persons, unknowingly become tools of the Devil and are then unwittingly used by him to draw away many others from God’s sheep-fold.

NICE DEVIL TOO!

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:PS_Kr%C3%B8yer_-_Hip_hip_hurra!_Kunstnerfest_p%C3%A5_Skagen_1888.jpg

.

 

And you don’t have to be a Devil-worshipping rock musician, to be a tool of the Devil. Even some nice, clean-cut, well-behaved members of the community, can deceive fellow church-members, simply by pursuing the things of the world, thus becoming a bad example to other professing Christians.

.

And just as this rock band is doing the Devil’s bidding in their career as musicians, the rest of us likewise are the Devil’s Helpers, whether we know it or not, prior to our conversion to Christianity (and sometimes after, too!)

GOOD NEWS!

.

But the Good News is, that it is still the day of Salvation!

.

The Bible says… “Let every one that nameth the name of Christ depart from iniquity.” 2nd Timothy 2:19.

.

And so, there is still time for both you and myself to begin walking that upward pathway which leads to everlasting life!

.

Listen once again… “The way of life is above to the wise, that he may depart from Hell beneath.” Proverbs 15:24. 

.

Yes, let us each begin that pilgrim’s journey out of this dark hellish kingdom of Satan!

TODAY’S FEATURED HEAVENLY SIGN

 

.

.

.

“STAIRWAY TO HEAVEN”…

.

 OR JUST THE “HIGHWAY TO HELL” ?…

.

“Woe unto them that draw iniquity with cords of vanity, and sin as it were with a cart rope:” Isaiah 5:18 

Valley of Decision Constellation Group

.

Look at the slope of this third mountain, and notice that it goes straight down to the Dragon Constellation. This slope belongs to the constellation commonly called Pisces. Doesn’t it almost look like the Dragon is towing this Mountain? It almost looks like the Dragon is transporting this false mountain from the south…from Hell. And he has pulled it northward…next to these other two mountains. This would almost seem like a comical idea…if it weren’t for the destruction and death and woe caused by Satan for many-a-millennium.

.

Just listen to this verse… “Woe unto them that draw iniquity with cords of vanity, and sin as it were with a cart rope:” Isaiah 5:18.

.

So God, it seems, has created this constellation group to present this fearful concept! 

.

.

.

.

THE BROAD WAY

 

.

But there is a second meaning to this long line of stars from this Destroying Mountain down to the Dragon Constellation? It would remind one of a highway. But what kind of highway? Need there be any further explanation? They say that a picture paints a thousand words. Well this picture that God has placed in the night sky paints a very poignant portrait indeed! This represents that “broad way which leads to destruction”.
