“22 For the Jews require a sign, and the Greeks seek after wisdom:
23 But we preach Christ crucified, unto the Jews a stumblingblock, and unto the Greeks foolishness;
24 But unto them which are called, both Jews and Greeks, Christ the power of God, and the wisdom of God.” 1 Corinthians 1:22-24
It appears the Blood Moons, Shemitahs and Harbingers are now being rewrapped and presented to those looking for signs as the Woman of the Apocalypse. As the stars are lined up on September 23, 2017 with the moon at Virgo’s feet and 9 stars plus 3 planets at her head, the false prophets are once again declaring “watch and see”.
I wonder how many lost and broken souls tune into such nonsense looking for deliverance and all they find are get rich schemes and conspiracy theories from the vanities of man’s mind.
“15 Take ye therefore good heed unto yourselves; for ye saw no manner of similitude on the day that the Lord spoke unto you in Horeb out of the midst of the fire:
16 Lest ye corrupt yourselves, and make you a graven image, the similitude of any figure, the likeness of male or female,
17 The likeness of any beast that is on the earth, the likeness of any winged fowl that flies in the air,
18 The likeness of any thing that creeps on the ground, the likeness of any fish that is in the waters beneath the earth:
19 And lest you lift up your eyes unto heaven, and when thou sees the sun, and the moon, and the stars, even all the host of heaven, should be driven to worship them, and serve them, which the Lord your God has divided unto all nations under the whole heaven.” Deuteronomy 4:15-19
Moses warned the Israelites before crossing over into the promise land not to fashion an idol of what they have seen in the likeness of God. He specifically stated not to lift up your eyes unto heaven, and when you see the sun, and the moon and the stars to worship them. Now, I understand you are not “worshipping the stars”. However, you are idolizing the stars. You are seeking a sign, just as the Jews did in 1 Corinthians 1:22.
There is a lost and dying world out there, some of whom may be your family or my family that may cross the paths of these false teachers and preachers. They do not need an astronomy lesson. They need the Lord Jesus Christ. They need deliverance from bondages. They need Salvation. They need God called preachers to stand up from behind the pulpits and declare the Gospel of Jesus Christ.
There are those who give their last dollar to ministries such as this. Sadly, the money is not going to the work of God. The work of God is the furtherance of the Gospel of Jesus Christ and signs and wonders will FOLLOW those who believe (Mark 16:17-18).
“But of that day and hour knows no man, no, not the angels of heaven, but My Father only.” Matthew 24:36
No one knows the day nor the hour that our Lord Jesus Christ will return. We can read the Bible and see the times and know the end is near. Until He comes, occupy. Do that which each and every Believer is commissioned to do…spread the Gospel of Jesus Christ.
“13 For whosoever shall call upon the name of the Lord shall be saved.
14 How then shall they call on Him in Whom they have not believed? and how shall they believe in Him of Whom they have not heard? and how shall they hear without a preacher?
15 And how shall they preach, except they be sent? as it is written, How beautiful are the feet of them that preach the Gospel of peace, and bring glad tidings of good things!
16 But they have not all obeyed the Gospel. For Esaias said, Lord, who has believed our report?
17 So then faith comes by hearing, and hearing by the Word of God.” Romans 10:13-17
What gospel is your money sending forth? Prayerfully consider.
