reply to post by Grandma
What a beautiful post, Grandma! And I pray for myself and all of us to understand just what it means to be Thankful that we are always in His hands.
But I do think that the Spirit of God is indeed moving within His people, and I see increasing evidence of the awareness of such. As the Lord calls
us, it is up to us whether we recognize his voice and determine WHOSE voice it is. We know when we hear His voice, to prayerfully study the Book of
Truth, but for some who don't recognize Him, may enter into mysticism.
Some will call it the Age of Aquarius; but, if it must be given a name, I would prefer to call it Enlightenment. To those who would receive the Word,
it shall mean the mysteries of God shall be revealed. To others, it's source and interpretation is whatever 'new age' cult they subscribe to.
I'm not a watcher of the constellations or astrological signs in any way, but I was reading Rev. 12 (I saw a sign in heaven), which led me to this
...Today, we are living at the end of the Age of Pisces; and the first house cardinal is Aries. Judaism's birth, however, was during the Age of
Aries, Earth would occupy the first-house cardinal position! We are now passing into the Age of Aquarius; and Pisces will become the first house
cardinal sign! There is great historico-astrological evidence for these eternal linkages.
Also from same source:
....The age of Pisces brought about the promise of other-worldly salvation, of the fisher of men; and the first house cardinal Aries taught the world
about the lamb of God. And the Passover of the Jew, which means to us political freedom, became the sacrifice of the Mass, which to the Christian is
freedom from sin and its hold upon a salvational future.Now we are entering the Age of Aquarjus, which holds forth its promise of society based upon
companionship and understanding. But the Age of Aquarius will be made manifest through the operation of its first house cardinal, Pisces. The mystery
of creative relationships among humanities... this will be the key and the guide to how Aquarius is made manifest. The mystical, the relational, and
communicative, the intuitive...these will link God, humanity, the universe, into a balanced unity. Once again we have come full circle and are faced
with the creativity of the communicative act as the key to the salvational process. Herein lies the mystery of Judaism, and still another legacy to
(The Savior is considered to be born in the Age of Pisces)
Now again, it is dangerous for me to try to interpret the signs of the heavens, because I never really studied these things. And even now, I don't
want to spend much time away from the Word. But take comfort that all will be revealed, in His time, and thank Him that he gives us true
understanding, again in His time.
I am also of the understanding that we are indeed living in the last days (yes it's been said before). Is this age of enlightenment connected
heavenly with the Age of Aquarius?? Of a certainty I cannot say. But take heart Grandma, the Lord is very active in the world today, and He is
calling ALL our hearts to Him. I am so thankful He has called me, and He has given us a heart which is capable to recognize His voice.
Have a Blessed Thanksgiving.
Also, I have printed your posted quote and will recite it with my family as we sit to dinner on Thanksgiving Day- Thanks!
