(CNN) -- Hold the obituary. Experts now think Comet ISON -- or at least part of it -- survived its close encounter with the sun.... Earlier Thursday, NASA scientists had pretty much declared ISON dead at the end of a Google Hangout to watch the comet swing by the sun. But professional and amateur astronomers were undeterred by the reports and kept analyzing NASA satellites. They found images that clearly show something emerging from the sun."
Two days ago I published "Thanksgiving - Hannakah & the ISON Comet on Nov 28." It noted that the occurence of Thanksgiving and Hannakah occuring on the same day will not happen again for another 70,000+ thousand years. Combine that with the ISON Comet passing near the sun on that same day and we find God speaking through a remarkable interalationship of signs in the heavens and on the earth. Two days ago I shared part of what I think God is saying.
What's God saying through all of this?
I submit, we have much to be thankful for IF we keep our focus on heaven. It's time to re-dedicate ourselves back to the Lord just like the Jews dedicated the temple back to the Lord a second time after the Maccabean revolt. It's time to let our lights so shine before men that they may see your good works and glorify our Father in heaven. Jesus taught us to pray kingdom come and will be done ON EARTH as it is in HEAVEN. I invite you to join me in dedicating ourselves to manifesting heaven on earth in a new and glorious way during this season of thanksgiving. - See more at: http://www.kingdomleague.org/3/post/2013/11/thanksgiving-hannakah-the-ison-comet-on-nov-28.html#sthash.mZOuwppN.dpuf
At first it was reported that the comet did not survive its brush with the sun. But now we find that it did.
What does this mean? I submit to you....
The closer we draw to the Son the more we die to ourself, the more we embrace our cross, the more our own light will shine as we reflect Him until we get so close no longer do people see us, but they see only the Son. Death is swallowed up in victory! Less of me and more of You oh Lord, a life transformed by an encounter with the Son of the Living God.
Here are some scriptures that these signs remind me of.
Luke 21:25 The Coming of the Son of Man (Matt 24:29-31; Mark 13:24-27)
"And there will be signs in the sun, in the moon, and in the stars; and on the earth distress of nations, with perplexity, the sea and the waves roaring; NKJV
John 3:30 - He must increase, but I must decrease. NKJV
Prov 4:18 But the path of the just is like the shining sun, That shines ever brighter unto the perfect day. NKJV
Mark 8:34-38 When He had called the people to Himself, with His disciples also, He said to them, "Whoever desires to come after Me, let him deny himself, and take up his cross, and follow Me. 35 For whoever desires to save his life will lose it, but whoever loses his life for My sake and the gospel's will save it. 36 For what will it profit a man if he gains the whole world, and loses his own soul? 37 Or what will a man give in exchange for his soul? 38 For whoever is ashamed of Me and My words in this adulterous and sinful generation, of him the Son of Man also will be ashamed when He comes in the glory of His Father with the holy angels." NKJV
1 Cor 15:54 So when this corruptible has put on incorruption, and this mortal has put on immortality, then shall be brought to pass the saying that is written: "Death is swallowed up in victory." NKJV
1 John 3:1-3 Behold what manner of love the Father has bestowed on us, that we should be called children of God! Therefore the world does not know us, because it did not know Him. 2 Beloved, now we are children of God; and it has not yet been revealed what we shall be, but we know that when He is revealed, we shall be like Him, for we shall see Him as He is. 3 And everyone who has this hope in Him purifies himself, just as He is pure. NKJV
Rev 22:16 "I, Jesus, have sent My angel to testify to you these things in the churches. I am the Root and the Offspring of David, the Bright and Morning Star." NKJV
Heb 10:19-25 Therefore, brethren, having boldness to enter the Holiest by the blood of Jesus, 20 by a new and living way which He consecrated for us, through the veil, that is, His flesh, 21 and having a High Priest over the house of God, 22 let us draw near with a true heart in full assurance of faith, having our hearts sprinkled from an evil conscience and our bodies washed with pure water. 23 Let us hold fast the confession of our hope without wavering, for He who promised is faithful. 24 And let us consider one another in order to stir up love and good works, 25 not forsaking the assembling of ourselves together, as is the manner of some, but exhorting one another, and so much the more as you see the Day approaching. NKJV
