Heaven’s Idols

“Be ye not unequally yoked together with unbelievers:

for what fellowship hath righteousness with unrighteousness?…

And what agreement hath the temple of God with idols? 

Wherefore come out from among them, and be ye separate,

saith the Lord, and touch not the unclean [thing];

and I (the LORD) will receive you…”

2nd Corinthians 6:14, 16, 17

.

.

In this high-tech world of instant communication, we now have access to nearly every part of the world.

But the Christian community had been given the commission to… “Be ye not unequally yoked together with unbelievers:…what agreement hath the temple of God with idols?…Wherefore come out from among them, and be ye separate, saith the Lord, and touch not the unclean [thing]; and I will receive you,” 2nd Corinthians 6:14, 16, 17.

.

Yes, the Bible commands us to maintain a separation between us and the world, as this above passage warns and commands!

CHRISTIANITY & WORLD MERGE!

.

And yet, at the very conception of the radio industry, the Christian community immediately joined the world in making music recordings. This was a fatal error, which immediately linked Christianity with the world!

.

Now there are, no doubt, many Christians who will argue the benefits of commercially-produced Christian music… “Oh I get such a blessing from listening to Christian radio”, many will swear!

.

Well, I can swear up and down about all the many benefits of Christian music, and how it has improved things.

.

But the fact is, the Christian community is a terrible shambles, compared to what it was in the days of the early Church! The apostasy has now been coming to full! Even much of the so-called conservative churches are steeped in idolatry and worldly-mindedness, as they seek after the same opulence and hedonistic pleasures that the world seeks after!

.

.

IDOLS OF OUR OWN MAKING!

.

And just look at the Christian music-world! It is filled with idolatry! We now have Christian music idols, who have gained both fame and fortune, through the various media.

.

And it has created a bridge between the Christian world and the secular world!

.

And much of the music has taken on a worldly appeal, filled with sensuality and earthiness!

THE TWO ADULTEROUS SISTERS IN EZEKIEL

The Pleiades: Mystery Babylon: Mother of Harlots

.

And it reminds us of God’s rebuke to His people, comparing us to the two sisters, Aholah and Aholibah, which represented the liberal and conservative portions of today’s church-world.

.

Listen… “And when her sister Aholibah saw this (the whoredoms of her sister), she was more corrupt in her inordinate love than she…She doted upon the Assyrians her neighbours, captains and rulers clothed most gorgeously, horsemen riding upon horses, all of them desirable young men….And that she increased her whoredoms: for when she saw men portrayed upon the wall, the images of the Chaldeans portrayed with vermilion…” Ezekiel 23:11-14

.The Pleiades: The Captive Angel Constellation

Yes, just like these two corrupt sisters, we conservatives and liberals in the Church have lusted after all the glorious array and pomp and display of the world, striving to compromise Christianity, by bringing these elements of the world into our worship! Yes, we have linked up with the world, and our children too!

.

Both famous musicians as well as popular preachers have too often become modern-day idols, receiving all the adoration and praise that should only belong to God!

GOOD NEWS!

.

But there is some very Good News in all this! Yes, those who have chosen to get into the Ark, and leave this present world, have the command to… “Cease ye from man, whose breath is in his nostrils: for wherein is he to be accounted of?” Isaiah 2:22.

.

Constellation- Woman of Revelation 12 flees to the mountains Mark 13:14

.

This verse is from Isaiah, Ch. 2, which deals with our day, when God’s people flee from the world, as they cast their, “idols of silver, and his idols of gold, which they made each one for himself to worship, to the moles and to the bats; To go into the clefts of the ragged rocks, for fear of the LORD, and for the glory of His majesty, when He ariseth to shake terribly the earth” Isaiah 2:21, 22  

.

And as the sanctified Believer separates his or her self from these counterfeit aspects of the Gospel, the Lord will supply our every need and joy which others seek for in the world to find!

.

And as we go about our day, we can listen to the Bible on audio, or we can sing Psalms, hymns and spiritual songs. And, perhaps there is a radio station or two on the Internet, which still plays sacred music, without the emphasis on self-exaltation. Or, we can purchase the best of the best CD’s, and listen to those.

.

But remember this, O Stranger and Pilgrim, the time is very short! God is now ready to give us the fulness of Christ! But this will only be bestowed upon those who are willing to sacrifice any and every worldly pleasure and affection and idol, no matter how similar to truth that they appear to us!

GLORIOUS CROWN CONSTELLATION…

.

& THE REVELATION 12 WOMAN

(Click here to read more!)

.

Corona Borealis Wikipedia Taken from software Perseus

.

This Glorious Crown Constellation looks like a wreath at first glance. It has 7 stars, plus another star in the middle. This Glorious Crown Constellation is commonly referred to as the Corona Borealis Constellation. This wreath reminds us of the victory wreath given to athletes who won races in the ancient http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:Lorbeerkranz_Zypern_rem.jpgcultures. This was spoken of by Paul as he compared those ancient races to the race that Christians must run… “Know you all not, that they which run in a race run all, but one receives the prize? So run, that you all may obtain.” 1st Corinthians 9:24 (see also Hebrews 12:1)

“A CROWN OF 12 STARS UPON HER HEAD” …

.

But upon a closer examination if you have access to a very dark sky out in the country; if you watch this wreath, you will eventually see 5 more very faint stars, making a total of 12 stars, plus that single star in the middle. This wreath now becomes a crown of 12 stars. This goes along with Revelation 12, which tells of a crown of 12 stars upon the head of the Virtuous Woman of Revelation 12.

.

“And there appeared a great wonder in heaven; a woman…and upon her head a crown of twelve stars:” Rev. 12:1.

.

But this crown is not yet upon the head of the Virtuous Woman of Revelation 12 Constellation (also known as Ursa Major). It is just above her head, as if she has yet to attain it. Of course, the 13th star in the middle would represent Christ (Who is our true Crown of our rejoicing). OK, so we have a picture of Christ and His twelve tribes of Israel. But also we have a picture of Christ and His twelve apostles, which is a picture of His Church. So this heavenly crown is a multi-faceted concept.
