In America how did we get from there, the way the United States began based on the Bible based on God, on all the things that you as an older audience understands what America used to be like decades ago. There is a book out by Newt Gingrich Rediscovering God in America where he goes through and shows how that mention of God, Creator and Sustainer, and the blessings that came to us all came from God! Different presidents have said that we have been 'recipients of the choices land in the world.'

The Bible was used as a textbook in school. People were taught the commandments of God with the exception of Sunday, and that became the Achilles' heel. But nevertheless God gave His promise to Abraham. So, let's look at some of these promises to Abraham, because the Americans in their history, have thought that we got all the things that we got and develop and so forth was because of our great industrious work, our intelligence, our wisdom and everything that we have done. But the truth is in focusing on United Kingdom and United States of America it all came from God!

God works in the kingdoms of men and God gave a promise to Abraham that was unequivocal, which was unilateral, and God has fulfilled it! Also, we will see the mission that God gave to Israel originally. Again, I want to reiterate something very important.

Found at truthofgod.org:

  • book: Judaism: Revelation of Moses or Religion of Men?
  • sermon series: Scripturalism vs Judaism

Let's look at some of the promises to Abraham and see that the one tribe of the twelve cannot, does not and never has, fulfilled these blessings. When we read Gen. 12, I want you to think about Luke 14; about how you're to 'leave father, mother, brother, sister,' and love God more than them.

Genesis 12:1: "And the LORD said to Abram, 'Get out of your country, and from your kindred, and from your father's house into a land that I will show you. And I will make of you a great nation. And I will bless you and make your name great. And you shall be a blessing'" (vs 1-2).

From the time of this pronouncement by God everything in the world, and subsequently to Israel, flowed from these promises! And subsequent promises that were placed alongside them in the covenant that he made with Abraham.

Verse 3: "And I will bless those that bless you and curse the one who curses you. And in you shall all families of the earth be blessed."

Christ is that #1 blessing. But the inheritance given to Ephraim and Manasseh is the other blessing that came to the whole world in the end-time. Stop and think: Where would the rest of the world be if it weren't for America and Britain? God had to deal with the people to bring them to that point so He could use them! So, Abraham obeyed! Then you know the covenant that expands it even more; the promise of Isaac and then the promise of spiritual seed (Gen. 15).

Then we come to Gen. 17 and you have something here that it is absolutely a blessing that God is bound to fulfill.

Genesis 17:1: "And when Abram was ninety-nine years old, the LORD appeared to Abram and said to him, 'I am the Almighty God!….'"

Now that is quite a phrase! Have you heard some of the reruns of the prayers of Franklin Delano Roosevelt? He said, "…Almighty God…" He wasn't converted. God never expected America and Britain to be converted, because He knows the nature the people. Out of that He can call those who would come into His Church. Nearly all the constitutions of every one of the 50 states of the United States of America refers to Almighty God! Why would that be? Because of the Word of God!

So, God said, "…Walk before Me and be perfect…. [that's exactly the same requirement for the New Testament] …And I will make My covenant between Me and you, and will multiply you exceedingly…. [13-million Jews is not an exceeding multiplication of people] …And Abram fell on his face. And God talked with him, saying, 'As for Me, behold, My covenant is with you, and you shall be a father of many nations'" (vs 1-4).

Not only the 12 tribes of Israel, but all of the all of the descendents of Esau, all of the descendents of Ishmael and all of the descendents from the seven other sons through Keturah.

Verse 5: "Neither shall your name any more be called Abram, but your name shall be Abraham; for I have made you a father of many nations."

Notice past tense. When God says something it's as good as done. That's why when we claim the promises of God we don't come before God and plead with God, 'Oh, do this; do that.' You know the promises and you come to God and say, 'O God, I know that as a man or a woman. I am nothing, but You have promised,' and you can claim the promises of God, because He has found Himself by His existence and by the witness of heaven and earth.

Verse 6: "And I will make you exceedingly fruitful, and I will make nations of you, and kings shall come from you. And I will establish My covenant between Me and you and your seed after you in their generations… [continuous; going on their generations in an everlasting or age-lasting covenant] ...to be God to you and to your seed after you. And I will give the land to you in which you are a sojourner, and to your seed after you, all the land of Canaan…" (vs 6-8).

Then that expands out later to the east, west, north and south. Rom. 4 said that Abraham knew that he would be heir of the world. Can you imagine what it's going to be like at the resurrection? Here we all are on the Sea of Glass and there's Abraham, Isaac and Jacob. Then Christ says to Abraham, 'These are all your spiritual children. Remember when I asked you to count the stars? Here they are. Now come over here to the edge of the Sea of Glass. I want you to look down on the earth. Do you see those armies over there? Those are your descendents. And I'll take care of them after the Millennium. And these armies over here, those are from you. Plus I have umpteen billion in the grave that I'm going to resurrect after the thousand years.'

Abraham is going to say, 'Almighty God, did You fulfill Your promise! And Sarah is going be right there with him, because notice what he told Sarah.

Verse 15: "And God said to Abraham, 'As for Sarai your wife, you shall not call her name Sarai, but her name shall be Sarah. And I will bless her, and give you a son also of her. Yes, I will bless her, and she shall be a mother of nations—kings of people shall be from her'" (vs 15-16). That's a tremendous broad sweep!

Then he made it absolutely irrevocable (Gen. 22). We're not going to go through the whole thing, but I just want to touch on some of these things so we understand how we got from there beginning with Abraham to here in America and Britain today.

Abraham was ready to offer his son and we know from Heb. 11 that he was willing to do so because he had the faith in God! Abraham knew that even if Isaac—who was his only son of promise—was offered, God would resurrect from the dead.

Genesis 22:11: "And the angel of the LORD called to him from the heavens and said, 'Abraham! Abraham!' And he said, 'Here I am.' And He said, 'Do not lay your hand upon the lad, nor do anything to him, for now I know that you fear God…'" (vs 11-12).

This is why God gives us space and time. Abraham was called at 75-years-old now here he is probably 115-years-old. So that's 40 years; that's why we have trials and tests. If we didn't have trials and tests, we would be of all people most presumptuous and arrogant! Wouldn't we? Yes! We would look at those 'slobs' in the world and how blessed we are of God. You know they have all these troubles, and 'we are so great.' NO! We have trials and difficulties to prove our faith; to test us:

  • Do we really believe God?
  • Do we really believe all the time?
  • Do we really believe  in all circumstances?
  • Do we really believe through our whole life?

So, here it was with Abraham!

"'…now I know that you fear God, seeing you have not withheld your son, your only son, from Me.' And Abraham lifted up his eyes and looked, and behold, behind him a ram was entangled in a thicket by its horns. And Abraham went and took the ram and offered it up for a burnt offering instead of his son. And Abraham called the name of that place The LORD Will Provide; so that it is said until this day, 'In the mount of the LORD it will be provided.' And the angel of the LORD called to Abraham out of heaven the second time" (vs 12-15).

God wanted Abraham to know for sure! This is important for us to understand. America and Britain received what they got because of Abraham, and as the descendents of Abraham and not any inherent goodness that they had of themselves. Though of people on earth God gave them a nature that he loved. Later we will see that he says of Ephraim, 'O Ephraim, what do I do with you? I love you, but I'm torn because of your disobedience and the things that you do.'

Verse 16: and said, 'By Myself have I sworn,' says the LORD, 'because you have done this thing, and have not withheld your son, your only son; that in blessing I will bless you, and in multiplying I will multiply your seed like the stars of the heavens, and as the sand, which is upon the seashore. And your seed shall possess the gate of his enemies…. [and the Jews never have] …And in your seed shall all the nations of the earth be blessed, because you have obeyed My voice'" (vs 16-18).

That's why Abraham is the father of all the faithful, too. Now let's look at some of the blessings here that were given. There are many others we can add to it, especially the reconfirmation given to Isaac. Where Isaac was told by God:

Genesis 26:5: "Because Abraham obeyed My voice and kept My charge, My commandments, My statutes, and My laws."

Gen. 48 is the most significant part in relationship to the end-time events in Gen. 49 and Deut. 33. So we will cover those so we understand. And this is when he blessed Ephraim and Manasseh.

Genesis 48:14: "And Israel stretched out his right hand and laid it upon Ephraim's head, who was the younger, and his left upon Manasseh's head, crossing his hands, for Manasseh was the firstborn."

This is a very special legal and spiritual thing that in this blessing that Israel knew it was something that he had to give in blessing to them. And he gave them to the children of Joseph. A lot of people say well Joseph married an Egyptian woman. Try this on for size: You married an American woman.

  • Does that tell you what race she is? No!
  • Did Egypt have a lot of races at that time? Yes they did!

So, in order for the people to be as they are it was not a mingling of the races at that particular time. We need to realize that, as well.

Verse 15: "And he blessed Joseph and said, 'May God, before Whom my fathers Abraham and Isaac walked, the God Who fed me all my life to this day, the Angel Who has redeemed me from all evil, bless the lads. And let my name be perpetuated in them, and the name of my fathers Abraham and Isaac, and let them grow into a multitude in the midst of the earth'" (vs 15-16).

Then Joseph got upset because of the switching of the hands, v 18: "And Joseph said to his father, 'Not so, my father, for this is the firstborn. Put your right hand upon his head.' And his father refused and said, 'I know it, my son, I know it. He also shall become a people, and he also shall be great, but truly his younger brother shall be greater than he, and his seed shall become a multitude of nations.' And he blessed them that day, saying, 'In you shall Israel bless, saying, "God make you as Ephraim and as Manasseh." 'And he put Ephraim before Manasseh" (vs 18-20).

All nations want to be like America and Britain; there is a reason for it, and there's a reason why we have the problems that we have today.

Genesis 49:22: "Joseph is a fruitful bough, a fruitful bough by a well, whose branches run over the wall. The archers have fiercely attacked him and have shot at him, and hated him…. [we've had wars and that's prophecy of it] …But his bow abode in strength, and the arms of his hands were made strong by the hands of the mighty God of Jacob—from there is the Shepherd, the Stone of Israel—by the God of your father, Who shall help you. And may the Almighty…" (vs 22-25). Isn't that interesting? The descendents of Ephraim and Manasseh referred to the Almighty God!

"…may the Almighty bless you with blessings of heaven above, blessings of the deep that lies beneath, blessings of the breasts and of the womb. The blessings of your father are greater than the blessings of my ancestors, to the utmost bound of the everlasting hills. They shall be on the head of Joseph, and on the crown of the head of him, the ruler, the leader who was separated from his brothers" (vs 25-26).

That's not to exclude the other 10, but the predominance of the blessing came to Ephraim and Manasseh.

Let's look at the initial mission that God proposed in His covenant with Israel. This will help us to understand why things are in such a mess today. And why, when you read the Old Testament, it is a history of wars, apostasy and return to God. God knows that with carnal people they can only take spiritual things so far.

As a matter of fact, you can read that in the book: Occult Holidays or God's Holy Days—Which? When God was giving the special covenant of the Sabbath, the children of Israel were there with Aaron making the golden calf. But God promised Abraham so He said He would do it. We'll see how He prepared the people at the end-time for this in just a minute.

Exo. 19 tells us the mission that God was going to use Israel to do, and was only partially fulfilled during the days of Solomon. Here's the thing that God has chosen to do:

He's chosen to work through human beings. Everyone that God uses they have their faults and problems and difficulties and even David had his though he was a man after God's heart. So, in using human beings and the blessing that He gave to Abraham saying that in seed the descendents from Abraham all the nations of the earth would be blessed. But that had to do with how they carried out what God wanted them to do.

Exodus 19:4: "You have seen what I did to the Egyptians…" You'd think if you would've seen all of that going on that you would always fear and tremble before God, remember it and know that God can do anything. But they didn't!

"…and how I bore you on eagles' wings… [God's Divine protection] …and brought you unto Myself" (v 4).

Here's a great event that's going to take place: the giving of the Ten Commandments to Israel from the top of Mount Sinai by God Himself speaking to all the people.

Verse 5: "Now, therefore, if you will obey My voice indeed, and keep My covenant…" This is how God does things: He brings you to Himself. In the case of a calling to eternal life He leads you to repentance provided that you are willing. And then He establishes the covenant of eternal life with you through repentance and baptism.

Likewise when God was dealing with Israel, He brought them to Himself at Mount Sinai and then gave them the mission that He expected them to do to fulfill the promises that 'in Abraham all the nations of the earth would be blessed.' Because God determined that He was not going to work through other nations. Now that's not the slight other nations. That's a choice that God made. None of us are going to say to God, 'What are you doing?' But let's see what He says here!

"…then you shall be a special treasure to Me above all people; for all the earth is Mine. And you shall be to Me…" (vs 5-6). Here is the mission statement. The only reason that God gives blessings is to serve Him, and we need to understand that.

"…a kingdom of priests and a Holy nation" (v 6). That was their mission statement for all Israel to take:

  • the laws of God
  • the commandments of God
  • the Truth of God
  • the blessings of God

to the whole world! That's an amazing thing when you understand it.

Let's just summarize a few things here. What did Israel do? They didn't believe God! God dealt with them through all the time with the Kings. Remember after Joshua died and the elders. They had a generation that didn't know God. So, they went after Baal and Ashtoroth. God raised up Samuel to help restore Israel. What did the children of Israel do?

Well, the elders came to Samuel and said, 'Samuel you're getting old.' That happens to all of us. When we were 30 we didn't think it would happen. When we were 50 we were hoping it wouldn't happen. When we became 60 we knew it was happening. When we get into 70 we know it is well advanced. When we get into 80 and 90 we know the end of the line is getting close. But God has human beings think that way because when you're 15 you don't want to think of what it's going to be like when you're 85.

Anyway they came to Samuel and said, 'You're getting old, and your sons have corrupted themselves.' That always happens! They said, 'We want a king like the rest of the nations.' First fatal flaw! What did God say they were to be? A kingdom of priests to the rest of the world and all the nations! God determined that He was going to work through the descendents of Abraham to bring His Word and His laws to the whole world. But Israel said, 'No we want to be like the nations give us a king. We want to be like the nations and worship their gods.'

If you look at the microcosm of the life of Solomon, you find a setting of how Israel always has been. When God raises them up and blesses them:

  • they start out with zeal
  • they believe in God
  • they want to do the right thing
  • they organize everything the way that they should

I'm not talking about the Church now, I'm talking about the physical descendents of Israel. What happened during Solomon's day? The whole world came to Solomon because of his wisdom! Brought 666 talents of gold yearly as tribute. He had a worldwide trading system that went out from Tyre and Sidon in the north, Elate in the south at the Red Sea and went around the world.

Kings of the earth came to seek his wisdom. And what did he do? He married 300 wives and had 700 concubines, and the man who was blessed with taking the plans that God gave to David and have the temple built. What did he do? You have the Temple Mount here and across the valley on the west side there was the Mount of Abominations. It was called that because he made altars for every one of the gods of the foreign wives that he married! So, Israel failed in doing what God wanted them to do! To bring them the laws and commandments of God!

Look at the history contained in 1st & 2nd Kings, 1st & 2nd Samuel 1st & 2nd Chronicles you read all of the prophets you read everything that is there and God had to, in 721B.C., send the ten northern tribes off into captivity up into the area of the Media, Parthia and Scythia. Eventually the Jews were carried off into captivity to Babylon. God wiped the temple; scraped the earth. God always corrects His own first!

Then He said that the Jews are going to come back, so they came back. Then we come down to the time of Jeremiah—this is before the going into the captivity—and Jeremiah had the mission of taking the king's daughters to what is now Northern Ireland so that there would always be a man to sit on the throne of David.

Remember there were two sons that were born to Judah: Zara and Perez. Zara put his hand out first and they put the scarlet thread on him. Perez means breach, there's a breach of the covenant.

The breach was healed when Jerusalem was destroyed in 586B.C. Jeremiah took the daughters of the king to the to the Zara branch of the Jews; so the line was preserved.

Psa. 89 is written by an Ezrahite, that after they came back with Ezra and Nehemiah from the captivity in Babylon this priest who was an Ezrahite reiterated all the promises to God had given to David that he would always have a man sit on the throne as the sun is shining and as the moon is there and for perpetual covenant down through all generations.

He says, 'God, where is it?' Because when the Jews came back there were no descendents from the kings! They were either killed before or during the captivity or they died in captivity. And so he was saying, 'God, did You break your covenant?' No, God preserved it! {Note the book: Judah's Sceptre, Joseph Birthright by J.H. Allen}

Let's have a real quick history lesson so we can understand how we got from there to here.

God—in the book of Amos—said that He would filter Israel through all the nations and he brought them to the Isles: The British Isles in the northern part of Europe. One of the first things that set the tone as to how modern Israel—through Ephraim and Manasseh—would act was the Magna Carta. Then there came a time when God would fulfill the promises that He gave to Ephraim and Manasseh. But first He had to do some things.

Hosea 2:13: "'And I will visit on her the days of the Baalim, in which she burned incense to them, and she adorned herself with her nose rings and her jewels, and she went after her lovers and forgot Me,' says the LORD. 'Therefore, behold, I will lure her and bring her into the wilderness, and speak comfortably to her'" (vs 13-14).

This is a prophecy of when God would begin dealing with Israel. This does not necessarily refer to the beginning of the Millennium, but there was a point in history that we can look back at now where God began to deal with modern Israel, which occurred beginning almost 500 years ago.

Verse 15: "'And I will give her vineyards to her from there, and the valley of Achor for a door of hope. And she shall sing there, as in the days of her youth, and as in the day when she came up out of the land of Egypt. And it shall be in that day,' says the LORD, 'you shall call Me Ishi, and shall no more call Me Baali'" (vs 15-16).

There's an island of Baali isn't that interesting. What is that all about? Pagan gods!

Verse 17: "For I will take away the names of the Baalim out of her mouth, and they will no more be remembered by their name. And in that day I will make a covenant for them, with the beasts of the field, and with the birds of the heavens, and with the creeping things of the ground. And I will break the bow and the sword and the battle out of the earth, and will make them to lie down safely" (vs 17-18). Then it blends into the Millennium.

Let's just picture the British Isles. The spirit of Israel showed itself toward God, first beginning with Wycliff in the late 1300s when he translated the Bible from the Latin into the old English. And this started an uprising of the other Israelites by relationship down in what is called Czechoslovakia or the Czech Republic today.

William Heimhose{unsure of spelling} led a group against the Catholic Church and this was the beginning rumbles of God beginning to deal with Israel in the end-times. But in order to take away the names of Baalim him out of the mouth of the children of Israel something else had to happen. He wanted something to happen in the end-time that Israel would have to do that no other group of nations on earth could do. He didn't give it to any other nations to do it.

I want to tell you little bit about Wales. The Gaelic language is so close to the Hebrew that it is uncanny. It's almost like the similarity between German and Dutch and Aramaic Hebrew and the Arab language. In Wales there is the highest concentration of what were known previously as Levites, and probably descendents of the priests there. Out of this God called one man, and this was the signal point of God beginning to deal with Israel in the end-times to cause His Word to be spread around the world. But He 1st had to get them out of the clutches of the Roman Catholic Church, and He did it through one man: William Tyndale. If you haven't read the tribute to William Tyndale in The Holy Bible in Its Original Order, A Faithful Version, please read it.

But I want you to read how God intervened to convert William Tyndale. Because God wanted His Word spread around the world and He wanted it from the Greek, which he inspired the apostles to write and He wanted it from the Hebrew for the Old Testament. William Tyndale was the man. When he was told we must be without God's laws and keep the Pope's laws, he said. 'If God give me the strength and the time to live, I will cause the plowboy or the boy behind the plow to know more about the Bible than the pope.'

He was one man against the world! He was converted in 1512. There was another Levite that I'm sure that God used: Erasmus. He was the one who compiled what is known as the Stevens Text of 1550—that was his 5th or 6th edition. So, God used Israelites—probably Levites—to work with His Word, because that's what He called them to do. The Word of God had to be made available first to the children of Israel, then to the whole world through Israel to fulfill what the initial thing was spoken to the children of Israel in Exo. 19, that their mission in the world was to take the Word of God to the world!

Then there was, along that same line, the stream of the Levitical preserved Hebrew texts which came from Jerusalem to Jebna to Tiberius to Western Spain to Northern Italy. And at the time of the Reformation isn't that interesting how all this worked out? A leading Jew brought the Old Testament over the Alps and brought it into Germany. Luther was given a chance, but Luther didn't follow through. Just like Jeroboam was given a chance, and Jeroboam failed.

But Tyndale was alone; he had a couple of helpers. He was chased from pillar to post all across Europe. He knew seven different languages so fluent that he could speak them as a native. A peculiar man for a special job for the people of modern-day Israel! The Word of God in English and he established the beginning of modern English and every translation of the Bible stands in the shadow of his work that God gave him the strength to do! That was the signal point of God beginning to deal with Israel in the end-times.

(go to the next track)

I want to continue along with what William Tyndale did and how God was working in England at that time. The Roman Catholic Church would not let him translate it so he exiled himself to the continent of Europe. He met Martin Luther and did the first edition of the New Testament in worms and the Catholic worms just missed him! (that's a little joke). Tyndale had two helpers: Miles Coverdale and John Rogers, and so he escaped. He went over in the area of the Netherlands from whence came Erasmus. They had religious freedom there in the Netherlands, but in Belgium it was Catholic.

He ended up virtually alone with John Rogers in the end and started translating the Old Testament before he was arrested, and he had it over half done and you can get the modern version of Tyndale's New Testament and Tyndale's Old Testament by David Daniell. He gives the history of it. While he was imprisoned in Vilvorde, which was in Belgium near Antwerp he was in there for 18 months. He was given opportunity to recant and so forth because he was public enemy # 1 of the pope and the Roman Catholic Church. One of the things that he wrote was The Obedience of the Christian Man, which King Henry VIII's second wife Anne Boleyn gave him to read.

He saw the means by which he could throw off the Catholic yoke. These things come together almost just like perfectly fitted gears. William Tyndale, through John Rogers, was finishing the Old Testament in Hebrew. William Tyndale was tried, and he was in prison from May 1535 until October 1536. He was tried and then he was executed. They brought him out to the stake before he was to be burned. They gave him a chance to recant and he said no he wouldn't recant. They tied him to the stake and they had a noose run through a hole in the stake and put it over his neck. They then put all of the wood for the fire to burn him as a heretic.

Now what I want you to do is compare all of this:

  • his life chased pillar to a post
  • hunted down
  • finally betrayed by a friend
  • arrested

Then the next time you complain how hard you have it think on that! He was faithful to the end, and his last words were, 'O God, open the eyes of the King of England.' That was in October 1536. In 1537 John Rogers caused to be published The Thomas Matthew Bible and I have an original a copy of the original. I've got also Daniell's Tyndale New Testament and Old Testament I've got a copy of the original King James 1611. I haven't an authentic printed version of the Stephens New Testament Text of the Greek. I have an actual New Testament that was printed in 1550. There's a lot of history that goes with this.

God answered that prayer of William Tyndale, because in 1537 toward the end of the year Henry VIII broke away from the Catholic yoke and commanded that the Bible be put into every church and if a person could not read the church would provide a reader for that person. Then one of his helpers Miles Coverdale translated the Old Testament. Shortly after that Bishop Cramner translated the Old Testament. So literally England was flooded with the Word of God in preparation for the end-time.

After Henry VIII died then Mary Stewart came in and the Catholic regime was instituted for a few years; then later she was removed and Elizabeth the daughter of Ann Boleyn became queen. And that was the signal moment when God began to raise up Israel to fulfill the promises that we read earlier.

  • they would possess the gates of their enemies
  • they would push the nations
  • they would bring the Word of God to the world

If you haven't seen the DVD or when it comes on television in your area get the one on Elizabeth. Now there are few risqué scenes in there but you're all adults I'm sure you can handle that. But the history is absolutely something how the Catholic Church was out to kill her, to assassinate her, to poison her, and to get rid of her. One of her advisers wanted her to marry Prince Philip of Spain so that it would be retained within the Catholic realm. God did not want that and that never happened.

 After one of her attendants died from a poison dress that was meant to be for Queen Elizabeth. She put it on and died a terrible vicious death. God gave her a guardian. I forget what his name was 'lord something.' He did away with all of the descendents of the Mary. She became Queen of England and her words were that 'I am married to England.' England started out at the beginning of her reign as one of the poorest countries in Europe and ended up as the richest country in Europe after her 42-year reign.

The dominant power in Europe at that time was Catholic Spain, and Spain was determined to get England back to the pope with the Spanish Armada. Well God took care of that, and that's how then the British Empire began and ended up being a company of nations. Then the brotherly fight between Ephraim and Manasseh began and America was set apart to fulfill its mission as a great nation. These two nations have published more Bibles in more languages and caused it to be spread around the world more than any other people in the history of the world.

Yes the French had their Bible Society the Dutch had their Bible Society but it was the British and the American Bible societies that provided the Bibles around the world. Yes they brought Protestantism, which is carnal Christianity. But you had to have a carnal Christianity but you had to have first of all the Word of God. God knew that the carnal Israelites could not handle the things for conversion.

So out of that structure came the Churches of God with the English-speaking people. It always existed down through history. {note CD Israel of the Alps} The Waldensians and then the Celtic Church was also involved in a small way but now here it is a big way, the Word of God in print. The Bible was the thing that was the main instrument used by the people of America. America was to take along with Britain the Word of God to the whole world and show them God's way.

  • What did we do? Back at the turn of the 19th century even the Supreme Court said this is a Christian nation, as far as a carnal Christian nation goes!
  • Where are more Churches of God than any place in the world? America!
  • Where are there more Bibles in any place in the world? America!

four for every household

  • What did Ephraim and Manasseh do? Instead of taking the Word of God to the world—so that the nations of the world would have decent government, have decent laws, and get rid of their paganism—Ephraim and Manasseh chose once again to become like the nations!

Hosea 7:4: "They are all adulterers, like an oven heated by the baker; he stops stirring, from kneading the dough, until it is leavened. In the day of our king, the rulers have sickened themselves with the heat of wine. He stretches out his hand with scorners… [made agreements with them] …for they have made ready their hearts like an oven, while they lie in wait. Their baker sleeps at night; in the morning it burns like a flaming fire. They are all hot as an oven, and devour their judges. All their kings have fallen; there is none among them who calls to Me. Ephraim mixed himself among the people; Ephraim is a cake that is not turned. Strangers have eaten up his strength, and he does not know. Yea, gray hairs are here and there on him, yet, he knows it not. And the pride of Israel… [all of Israel] …testifies to his face. And they do not return to the LORD their God, nor seek Him in all this. Ephraim also is like a silly dove without heart…" (vs 4-11).

When you see some of the silly things of political correctness coming out of England you wonder how did they become that way? Because they left God!

"…they call to Egypt; they go to Assyria. When they go, I will spread My net upon them; I will bring them down like the birds of heaven; I will chastise them, as their congregation has heard…. [now we bring in the Church in the midst of it] …Woe to them, for they have fled from Me! Destruction unto them—because they have sinned against Me. Though I have redeemed them, yet, they have spoken lies against Me. And they have not cried to Me with their heart, when they howled on their beds; they gather themselves for grain and wine, and they rebel against Me. Though I have bound and strengthened their arms, yet, they think evil against Me. They return, but not to the Most High…." (vs 11-16).

Witness Sept.11, 2001. Oh yes, 'God bless America.' Two years later 'God curse America'!

"…They are like a deceitful bow; their rulers shall fall by the sword from the rage of their tongue. This shall be their scorn in the land of Egypt" (v 16).

Let's see what has happened. Let's carry this little further.

  • Why are we in the trouble that we are in?
  • Why do we have the immigration problem that we have?
  • Why are the politicians blinded?

Hosea 4:6: "My people are destroyed for lack of knowledge. Because you have rejected knowledge, I will also reject you from being as a priest to Me…. [that goes right back to Exo. 19 where we began] …Since you have forgotten the Law of your God, I will also forget your children."

We have rejected God. Let's see what it's like. You look at this nation and I can't help but think God's hand of punishment has come and come and come like the waves of the sea and we refused to return. Then He sends more and He sends more and He sends more.

Isaiah 1:2: Hear, O heavens, and give ear, O earth; for the LORD has spoken, 'I have reared and brought up children, but they have rebelled against Me"—even the religious ones.

How many have had confrontations with their Sunday-keeping preacher when you started to understand the Sabbath? They all know which day is the Sabbath, and they know that's what the Bible says. That's why we have in The Holy Bible in Its Original Order, A Faithful Version: Rome's Challenge to the Protestants. Because Rome says you're are all dumb ignorant blind Protestants and you think you're following the Bible. But you keep Sunday and there's no place in there which says to keep Sunday.

That was the Achilles' heel that brought the children of Israel away from God when He restored them through Britain and America. Then their preachers and ministers that all became liars and hypocrites. It affects even the Church of God today. Do you want to know why the Church of God is scattered the way it is? There are too many people who are brethren who follow wild things that are just not Scriptural!

There too many ministers standing up and saying, 'Give me your money and let's do this and that and the other thing, rather than looking in the Bible to find out what God want us to do! In all the correction that has is come to the Church of God a lot of them haven't learned have they. No! They'll let a man beat them up take their money and then refused to talk even to their own children because they don't attend the same church. So it has affected the nation it has affected the church.

Verse 3: "'The ox knows his owner, and the donkey his master's crib; but Israel does not know Me; My people do not understand.' Ah, sinful nation, a people burdened with iniquity, a seed of evildoers, children who deal corruptly! They have forsaken the LORD; they have provoked the Holy One of Israel to anger; they have gone away backward. Why should you be stricken any more? You will revolt more and more; the whole head is sick, and the whole heart faint. From the sole of the foot even to the top of the head there is no soundness in it; only wounds and bruises and putrefying sores; they have not been closed, nor bound up, nor soothed with ointment" (vs 3-6)—because of all the sins. We'll talk about the worst sin here in just a bit.

Verse 7: "Your country is a desolation, your cities are burned with fire…. [they have been from time to time and will be again] …Strangers devour your land right in your very presence, and it is wasted, as overthrown by strangers" (v 7).

Why? Because you want to become like the nations instead of becoming the nation that God wants you to be! To teach the rest of the nations how they should be. So. if you want to be like the rest of the nations God is going to send them by the thousands and tens of thousands and hundreds of thousands and millions.

Verse 8: "And the daughter of Zion is left as a booth in a vineyard, like a hut in a garden of cucumbers, like a besieged city. Except the LORD of hosts had left us a very small remnant…" (vs 8-9). That is the Church, and then secondarily those few who still believe in keeping most of the commandments of God.

"...we would have been as Sodom; we would have become like Gomorrah" (v 9).

Oh yes, they're religious; they have their ceremonies, but they won't repent. God says, 'All these things don't count anymore unless you repent and come to Me.' He says to 'cease to do evil; learn to do good,' but they won't do it. Then he says if you rebel and refuse you're going to be 'devoured with the edge of the sword.' Let's see how we got to here, and then we will cover some historical things that will show you how it happened.

We need to settle one issue concerning the Constitution of the United States. Though it may be better than other constitutions of other nations it is fatally flawed. That's why we're in the mess that we are in. For people who say, 'Let's get back to the Constitution,' It'll never happen! Your only hope is to return to God and to be saved out of the mess when is God's time.

Hosea 4:1: "Hear the Word of the LORD, children of Israel…" Now that's all Israel: England, America, Norway, Sweden, Denmark, the Netherlands, Belgium, France, the Jews—all of them.

"…for the LORD has a controversy with the inhabitants of the land, 'There is no truth, nor mercy, nor knowledge of God in the land'" (v 1). And they're trying to strip it out everything. They are succeeding because of the greatest sin that has been allowed.

Verse 2: "By swearing, and lying, and killing, and stealing, and the committing of adultery they break out; and blood touches blood."

Let's talk a little bit about killing. I believe we are where we are, and the immigration problem is what it is, because of the children of Israel—instead of producing offspring—have killed them through abortion. They don't think that God's judgment will come, but it's going to come and it's going to be absolutely incredible! How long down the road we don't know but it will come!

How many have seen in the womb? When you see that what you are watching is God's creation of another new human being. We are killing the most innocent in their most vulnerable time of life when they're being formed. If the mother for her whoredoms will not protect her own children when they're in the womb, you have reached the lowest point that could possibly be. It can be repented of, but just like during the days of Manasseh God said, 'I am going to judge.' So, the judgment is going to come and it will come big time!

How did we get to that point? Let's look at a timeline of some recent history. And remember this deception by incrementalism. That's how it comes. So I had Ron Cary, our webmaster do this for me, and I think we will find this very, very instructive; here's a timeline in history:

  • 1859—evolution, Charles Darwin
  • 1881—Westcott and Hort; taking down the New Testament
  • 1912—a signal point in the history of America, Woodrow Wilson was elected as president
  • 1913—the Federal Reserve act set up to take away the wealth of the nation
  • 1913—17th amendment direct election of US senators
  • 1914 to 1918 WWI—13,000,000 civilians, 8,500,000 soldiers killed
  • 1919—League of Nations: 1st effort at creating world governing body; US didn't ratify it
  • 1920—women's suffrage; receive the right to vote

If it would have ended there we wouldn't have the problems that we have now. The goal is to free women. Not so they can be equal with men but so that they can have all the rights of men and women. There's something that happens that I've mentioned before: Some women are going to think that I am against women, I'm not against women, but why is the feminist movement against men and against children! This goes right along with abortion:

Leviticus 19:29: "You shall not prostitute your daughter…"

Look at those poor pathetic adolescents 11, 12, 13, 14, on up into their teens. The reason they look like prostitutes is because they are.

"…to cause her to be a whore, lest the land fall to whoredom, and the land become full of wickedness" (v 29). Does that not describe America and Britain today? Yes! Think about it!

  • The Roaring 20s--they had a lot of drugs then, too
  • 1925—the Scopes trial and beginning of kicking God out of schools
  • 1929—stock market crash
  • 1929 to 1941—Great Depression
    • if you won't serve God
    • if you won't love God
    • if you won't obey God
    • if you live in this land and
      • you pollute it
      • you defile it
      • you ruin it
      • you destroy it
        • I'm going to send you drought
        • I'm going to send you storms
        • I'm going to send you war
        • I'm going to send you sickness

Because you won't carry my name to the world like you were supposed to I will carry your name to the nations and they will destroy you.

  • WWII—56,125,262 deaths estimated
  • 1945—United Nations to replace the League of Nations

World government is coming. And the way they set up these regions of nations every single nation that belongs that are the descendents of the 12 tribes of Israel will lose their sovereignty through regional structure of nation's!

  • 1941—first TV sponsored in New York City

And that's when the only the few wealthy who control the world determined they would control what people would see. Is that true? Yes!

  • 1960—the pill

You teach them to become whores and take away the fear of pregnancy. Now it's backfiring because there's estrogen in the water and in the food, and it's making men feminine and causing breast cancer galore in women, because they want to be whores.

  • 1960s—sexual revolution and all the drugs to go with it
  • 1962—environmentalism; some good, some bad
  • 1963—prayer kicked out of school through Murray vs Curlett
  • 1963—school prayer and Bible reading outlawed; the Beatles began their music to hypnotize the youth
  • 1964-1965—free speech movement and obscenity rallies
  • 1967—free love movement intertwined with the history of feminism challenging institution of marriage and many advocated its abolition; just live together
  • 1980—the New Age
  • 1997—Harry Potter
  • 2008—A Course in Miracles by Oprah Winfrey, to bring in Deepak Chopra and Eastern Hinduism to the masses of the ignorant American women who think that emotionality is all there is to life, which includes a belief there's no sin no evil no devil and that God is in everyone and everything, so you have a pantheism.

And we have all the movies of Lord of the Rings Golden Compass to watch on television. Sickening! Sickening! Sets everyone up for thinking. I want to ask everyone a very personal question. Not just those who are here listening because those who are here listening I'm preaching to those who believe what I'm saying.

  • What occupies your mind?
  • What goes into your mind?
  • What music do you allowed to go into your mind that you live by?
  • What are they doing to the teenagers?
  • What is happening?

They found a ring of young girls from 12 different families back in the Chicago area with their cell phones they would take pictures of their private genitals and send them to their boyfriends. One boyfriend made a collection of the all and tried selling them and he got arrested for selling pornography.

They brought this to the attention of the parents and only one parent was outraged! Why? Because there are millions:

  • hooked on porn online
  • hooked on sex
  • hooked on drugs
  • hooked on medication
  • hooked on television
    • Do you think they dare open the Bible and read it?
    • Do you think they would dare come to God with confession of sin?
    • No!

But if they are in trouble, they cry out to God.

  • God's not going to hear them
  • God's not going to answer them
    • What occupies your mind?
      • lust
      • money
      • sex
      • drugs
      • music

Those are all your idols!

  • You have no room for God!
  • You have no room for the Truth!

You want to kill 50 million innocent babies and you want to be like all the nations of the world that God said, 'You were to take My laws and teach them. Instead you embrace all of their ways. Yet, I've blessed you with the finest of everything and you've corrupted yourself.'

If you've ever wept for America now's the time. Isn't it something that those who were to bring the Word of God to the world have become worse than the pagan religions of the nations they were to help bring the knowledge of God to. That's why this correction is coming, and the judgment is coming.

Hosea 4:6: "My people are destroyed for lack of knowledge. Because you have rejected knowledge, I will also reject you from being as a priest to Me. Since you have forgotten the Law of your God, I will also forget your children. As they were increased, so they sinned against Me. I will change their glory into shame" (vs 6-7)—our power, our wealth, our nation, and our institutions!

Britain is already gone. We will become captives within our own borders, because our sovereignty will be taken over by regions of nations.

Verse 8: "They eat up the sin of My people, and they set their heart on their iniquity. And it has become, like people, like priest; and I will punish them for their ways, and reward them for their doings, for they shall eat and not have enough. They shall commit whoredom and not increase because they have stopped taking heed to the LORD. Whoredom and wine and new wine take away the heart" (vs 8-11). Add to that cocaine, methamphetamine, heroine, prescription drugs etc.

Verse 12: "My people seek advice from their wooden idols… [that is their idols their psychiatrist and everything] …and their rod declares to them, for the spirit of whoredoms has caused them to go astray, and they have gone awhoring away from under their God."

There was one commentator explaining about what happened to Nazi Germany in WWII. He said it was like the whole nation was possessed until the end of the war when it was broken. Then the people came to their senses. This whole nation now is obsessed and possessed of sex, drugs, play, sports and everything against God!

Verse 13: "They sacrifice upon the tops of the mountains, and burn incense upon the hills, under oaks and poplars and elms because its shade is good. So, your daughters shall commit whoredom, and your brides shall commit adultery. Will I not punish your daughters when they commit whoredom, or your wives when they commit adultery? Even the men themselves go aside with whores, and they sacrifice with temple prostitutes. The people who do not understand shall fall" (vs 13-14).

We could go on and on with many different things here but I think that says it all. Spirit of whoredoms has taken us down. Brethren, those who come into the Church of God out of the world today are going to be have different set of problems then we confronted. We don't know exactly how much time we have left but I think we have more time than we have anticipated. I can tell you this: Satan is going to raise man to a near godlike ability through technology, implants and weapons, so that when it comes time for the return of Jesus Christ—which will be a universe shaking event—it's not going to be some secret little call so all you self-righteous nerds and Protestantism can be swept up to heaven.

No! It's going to shake the heavens and shake the earth and the whole earth is going to see it and now it. It is going to be an alien invasion from outer space because God is an alien to this earth. The saints who will be resurrected are aliens to this earth.

Brethren, we need to realize that we in the first resurrection are the hope to save the United States and Britain and all the world. That's how we got from there to here!
