“Let no man deceive you by any means:

for that day shall not come,

except there come a falling away first,

and that man of sin be revealed, the son of perdition;

Who opposeth and exalteth himself above all that is called God,

or that is worshipped;

so that he as God sitteth in the temple of God,

showing himself that he is God.”

2nd Thessalonians 2:3-5

.

Here in this above passage, the Apostle Paul is writing to the Thesshttp://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:PaulT.jpgalonians, who were confused about just when the Day of the Lord should take place.

.

But from this above passage, has arisen a general consensus among theologians, that the the “man of sin” and the Antichrist Beast of Revelation 13 are both speaking of the same evil entity: a literal human being, known as “The Antichrist”.

.

After all, 2nd Thessalonians calls him “that man of sin”!

SCRIPTURE WITH SCRIPTURE

.

So how much plainer can God be about, the man of sin”?

.

A man is a man!

.

Correct?http://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:Holy_bible.jpg

.

The discussion is over!

.

Right?

.

But the problem with this kind of thinking is that, “no prophecy of scripture is of any private interpretation” 2nd Peter 1:20.

.

That’s right! No one scripture stands all alone!

.

Every scripture must be compared with every other related scripture on any particular topic, in order to rightly be understood.

SO WHO IS THAT MAN?

.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:Martin,_John_-_Satan_presiding_at_the_Infernal_Council_-_1824.JPGSo in order to find out just who this “man” is that takes his seat in the temple of God, let’s look at Isaiah… “How art thou fallen from heaven, O Lucifer, son of the morning! how art thou cut down to the ground, which didst weaken the nations! For thou hast said in thine heart, I will ascend into heaven, I will exalt my throne above the stars of God…They that see thee shall narrowly look upon thee, and consider thee, saying, ‘Is this THE MAN that made the earth to tremble, that did shake kingdoms; That made the world as a wilderness, and destroyed the cities thereof; that opened not the house of his prisoners?'” Isaiah 14:12-17

ISAIAH 14 & 2nd THESSALONIANS 2:3 ARE PARALLEL

.

So this above passage from Isaiah 14, defines Lucifer as a “man”.

.

But it also defines Lucifer’s great ambition… “I will sit als537px-The Prophet Isaiah_(Bible_Card from 1904) wikipedia public domaino upon the mount of the congregation, in the sides of the north: I will ascend above the heights of the clouds; I will be like the most High.”

.

So, this above passage also parallels 2nd Thessalonians Ch. 2… “and that man of sin be revealed, the son of perdition; Who opposeth and exalteth himself above all that is called God, or that is worshipped; so that he as God sitteth in the temple of God, showing himself that he is God.” 

.

So these two passages say almost exactly the same thing:

.

1. To sit upon the mount of the congregation is the equivalent to sitting in the temple of God (“Know ye not that ye are the temple of God…?” 1st Corinthians 3:16. The Bible repeatedly reveals that God’s Church (Congregation) is His temple. 

.

2. Isaiah refers to Lucifer as, “the man”, and 2nd Thessalonians. speaks of, “that man of sin”.Paul the Apostle-Artist-Valentin de Boulogne or Nicolas Tournier- circa 1500s

.

3. And both passages reveal that man’s ambition is to, “be like the most High”, and “showing himself that he is God”.

.

And so, before we jump to conclusions about Bible prophecy, we really need to do our homework.

.

Let’s just allow the Bible to define what it means concerning 2nd Thessalonians, Ch. 2:3.

TODAY’S PRAYER:

.

Lord, there are so many Bible prophecy teachers out there, saying so many different things. Christendom has become a city of confusion, it seems! Give me strength to merely study for myself, and not be so dependent on having others tell me what to believe…

TODAY’S FEATURED HEAVENLY SIGN

LOCATING THE DRAGON

.

REVELATION 12 DRAGON IS NOT DRACO!

.

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

.

First, let it be stated, that this Dragon Constellation is not the same constellation commonly referred to as “Draco” (photo to right is Draco, AKA Ursa Minor).

.

This Revelation 12 Dragon from Signs Of Heaven, has not been previously recognized. But you will discover that it is a very intricate and complex constellation, once you are comfortable locating it.

THE DRAGON OF REVELATION 12 CONSTELLATION. The star-charts below are from Wikipedia and are combined into one chart to show these three constellations, which the editor has sketched over with these three constellations, as they appear when in the west. Hopefully, this will be an assist in locating these constellations in the night-sky.

LOCATION…

.

star-charts winter constellations

.

The Revelation 12 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 also known as the head of Taurus the Bull. The Dragon’s tail-tip is Pleiades and the lower shaft of his tail is partly of Aries and Pisces. Then with aid of a dark and starry night, you may begin to connect the mouth and the tail with a very long body in an oval shape. The front and back legs are made of a few stars: the front legs partially of stars from Taurus . The back legs and rear fin are made of 6 stars from the Cetus Constellation.

.

BODY HARD TO SEE

.

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 .

.

.

FIRST APPEARS IN MID-SUMMER

.

Dragon of Revelation 12 Constellation

.

This Dragon constellation appears in the eastern horizon about mid-summer in the pre-dawn hours, spewing his flood-waters northward toward the Revelation 12 Woman in Travail (not pictured in this chart).

.

The Wave of Water is primarily composed of the Constellation Auriga. There are two dimmer stars (#’s 1 & 2) which are closest to the Dragon’s mouth. These two dimmer stars are also part of this Wave of Water.

.

THE ZODIAC NAMES

It is not the purpose, nor the desire of www.theheavensdeclare.net to give any validity or recognition to the Zodiac or any pagan deities. But unfortunately, the common names of many constellations (such as Scorpio or Sagittarius, etc.), must be given, solely for the purpose of locating them on star-charts.
