Welcome to Sabbath services! I hope you're doing well with your quarantine or your shelter in place.

I'd like to show you a publication that comes out two or three times a year, The Bible Review Journal from the International Society Bible Collectors {http://www.biblecollectors.org/}

I got a call from the president a couple of months ago and he wanted to know if we wanted to advertise in this publication. I told we did and I sent him a calf-skin Bible and A Harmony of the Gospels. As a result of that we have an ad on the back page outside for the Bible:

Still the most extraordinary Bible ever published. True! It is the only Bible in a single volume that has all the books in manuscript order. Plus Commentary and Appendices.

On the inside we have an ad for A Harmony of the Gospels. Since on our website we give it without cost, so we advertised it free for them.

I also got a letter from Carl Johnson who is the president, or chief fellow there. They put in nominations for those to sit on their Board. He said that you could nominate yourself if you want to. I figured I didn't have enough time for anything extra like that, so I didn't do that, but I appreciate it.

What is the old saying: When you least expect it, it will happen! Let's see the way that it is today, and some of it is going to get pretty difficult. Advance warning! But nevertheless, we do have to cover these things as they come along.

It's quite a thing to understand, concerning the Bible, especially with all the digital versions that we have today. It is the most widely distributed, most scrutinized and analyzed book in th world. Yet, many of those people who study it do not understand it. Some of them understand different things. I have another publication Biblical Archeological Review, which we've advertised in.

You would think that the Jewish people of all people would have the most knowledge of anything of anybody on the face of the earth. But the truth is that they do not concerning things Biblical! The truth is that they put their traditions above the Bible! So, in not accepting Jesus as the Messiah, and their own rebellion against God, they are doubly or triply blinded. The blinding is noted in most of the things that they do in the Archeological Review is to go back and dig up ancient sites.

What is that going to prove? The only thing that it will prove—that is says in the Bible about these sites—is that they did exist, people lived there and all of that! Rarely will they ever admit that they lost Jerusalem and the Temple twicebecause of their sins!

They won't do that! It's 'everybody else in the world is to blame.' When you look at Christianity today, let's see what we have here:

Isaiah 30:8: "Now go, write it before them in a tablet… [God wants it all written down so that there would be no mistake as to what He said] …and note it in a book… [which is collected, called 'The Scroll of the Truth in heaven' (Dan. 21)] …so that it may be for the time to come forever and ever." In other words, in different cycles this will be true!

Verse 9: "That this is a rebellious people, lying children. They are children who will not hear the Law of the LORD."

Go on TBN and watch it for a while—you may have to endure some things you don't like to hear—and you will hear that the Protestants, for the most part, don't want to hear the Law of the Lord! That's a major cause as to why we have so many problems!

Remember when I gave the analogy about Perfectville. Wouldn't you like to live in Perfectville? How would it be perfect?

  • they would have the right God
  • they wouldn't have idols
  • they don't take God's name in vain
  • they kept the Sabbath
  • all the children were loving and obedient, as well as the parents
  • there was no murder
  • there was no adultery
  • there was no thievery
  • there was no lying
  • there was no lusting
  • you didn't have any locks on your doors
  • you didn't need policemen

But you would have to have the Law of God that everybody kept! Do you think they would keep it? No!

Verse 10: "Who say to the seers, 'See not,' and to the prophets, 'Do not prophesy to us right things, speak to us smooth things, prophesy illusions; go out of the way, turn aside out of the path, cause the Holy One of Israel to cease from before us'" (vs 10-11).

When you cause God to be gone from your society, which we have, then you're in trouble!That's to say nothing of the world that never knew the true God in the first place.

But those who knew the true God in the first place were not willing to love and obey Him!

Verse 12: "Therefore, thus says the Holy One of Israel, 'Because you have despised this word…'"—everything written in the Bible! Who was called the Word? Jesus!

Just a little something to think, which we'll cover in a coming sermon—Jesus said, "I'm the Beginning and the Ending, the First and the Last, the Alpha and Omega.'

When you apply that to the Bible, that means an awful lot. That means that God is involved more directly in things going on in the world through His angels, Satan and the demons, and in His people in the Church.

Verse 13: "Therefore, this iniquity shall be to you as a breach ready to fall…"

Have you ever driven by a wall that's kind of leaning over a little bit and you think: I wonder when that's going to fall? When we used to meet with WCG over in Santa Cruz we would go down in the valley and up on the other side quickly and there was this house that was built out, the ledge was fastened to the hill. It had no foundation, but it had stilts as a foundation. That house survived many earthquakes. Every time we went by we'd wonder if it's going to be there. Twenty-five years it existed that way, and one day we came by and it was gone!

That's a good example of things coming upon people when they least expect it! But everything about that house told you that it would collapse! Just exactly what's going on in the world today!

"…swelling out in a high wall, whose breaking comes suddenly, in an instant" (v 13).

I want you to think about that with all the printing of the money they're doing now to rescue us from the Coronavirus (Wuhan virus)! We're getting closer to the day when it's going to cost lots and lots of money to buy a loaf of bread; just like it was in the Weimar Republic in Germany before Hitler took over.

It looks like they're going to add about $5-trillion to the debt in one year! That is amazing! That's about 18% of the debt that we owed at the beginning of the year. What's going to happen with all of that money?

Verse 14: "And He shall break it as the breaking of the potters' vessel…." When you smash it, what happens? It goes into many different pieces going everywhere!

"…that is smashed in pieces. He shall not spare, so that there shall not be found in the fragments a shard to take fire from the hearth, or to take water out of the pit" (v 14).

Let's tie that together with Jer. 18, because this pandemic is a worldwide 184 nations, and will probably get up to 190 nations.

Jeremiah 25:29: "'For, lo, I begin to bring evil on the city, which is called by My name; and shall you go unpunished? You shall not go unpunished. For I will call for a sword on all the inhabitants of the earth,' says the LORD of hosts."

Verse 26: "…and all the kingdoms of the world…" Is that inclusive of everyone?

Verse 30: "'And prophesy against them all these words, and say to them, "The LORD shall roar from on high, and utter His voice from His Holy habitation. He shall mightily roar over His dwelling place. He shall give a shout, like those who tread out grapes, against all the people of the earth.'"

In our lifetime this is the first time that we've had something affect all nations. Is this the start of something? It certainly can't be the finishing of something! What's going to happen?

They say with the Coronavirus that they're wondering if there's a relapse or reoccurrence of it:

  • Will it be worst than the first time around? They don't know!
  • What has this demonstrated to all the ordinary people in the world? The experts do not know what to do! They may do different things.

Sidebar: the press crucified Trump over this last week. When he was told that when people go out in sunlight the virus is killed in a matter of seconds. The moral of that story is that their advice to stay in quarantined is wrong. Get out and get in the sunlight! How does sunlight come into your body? Vitamin D!

They also said that if you use disinfectant and things like that it kills is right away. If you use ultra-violet light, it will kill the virus just with the light—BANG! Instantly!

So, Trump asked the question: Is there anyway you could do this with injection? They got absolutely insane, and even the stupid doctors—the noted ones there, Fauci and Birx—don't know a thing about regular ways of taking care of your health!

The doctor that comes on Fox news all the time, when he was told that some people are taking massive doses of Vit. C and it's really working, he said, 'I don't know about that.' Do you know why? Because the doctors know a thing about vitamins, supplements or natural methods!

Two good comments:

  • Steve said that he was listening to the radio and they said that quarantine is the worst thing you can do, because it increases your likelihood of getting it.

Why? What if you have a whole family together and only one has the virus, and the rest are quarantined? You're all breathing the same air over and over unless you have the windows open and a couple of fans going.

Same way with these masks. You put them on and you're breathing your carbon dioxide. How is that going to help people who have heart conditions. A stupid thing to do!

Then they showed in Colorado they showed a company who is working on putting a tube down into the lungs of those who have severe Wuhan Virus and it is so that it will bend UV rays into the lungs to kill the virus instantly!

So, Trump was right!

  • Concerning disinfectants: What are the disinfectants that people have? Bleach!

Chlorine dioxide—a few drops—in an acid activator for 30 seconds, then dilute it with water and drink it kills all toxins and pathogens upon contact within the body.

These doctors who are supposed to know so much, they don't! Do you know why they don't? because they must go by protocol! The protocol is set by the AMA (American Medical Association), and the CDC (Center for Disease Control).

That is all medicine and chemical and all the things that the doctors do. What this Coronavirus is showing is that they don't have the answers for the worst things that come along, because they have cutoff any knowledge. Just like it says here, right in a book, but they won't read it!

These things are known, but they try and destroy Pres. Trump, because he wondered if these things could be done internally. The answer is yes!

So, the whole world is affected, 184 nations! Let's see what God is doing, and we'll see how He's doing it. Then we'll see what's happening in the rest of the world in just a little bit.

I want you to expand your thinking of how God works. Remember, as you expand your thinking, God knows two things all the time:

  • when a sparrow falls
  • every hair on your head are numbered

Jeremiah 18:1: "The Word, which came to Jeremiah from the LORD, saying."

For any skeptics out there, the prophets did not do anything unless God said to do it! Then He had it written down!

Verse 2: "'Arise and go down to the potter's house, and there I will cause you to hear My words.' Then I [Jeremiah] went down to the potter's house, and, behold, he was working at his wheel. And the vessel that he made of clay was ruined in the hand of the potter; so he made it again into another vessel, as seemed good to the potter to make it. Then the Word of the LORD came to me, saying, 'O house of Israel, can I not do with you even as this potter?' says the LORD…." (vs 2-6).

With Israel, God is always active with all the 12 tribes of Israel, wherever they are in one degree or another! Remember that the majority of the blessings that came to Israel, Jacob passed on to his 12 sons plus Ephraim and Manasseh, who was the firstborn. The greatest blessings came upon Ephraim and Manasseh! So, God is always working with Ephraim and Manasseh in the majority of cases greater than any of the other tribes of Israel, and greater than any of the other nations in the world, unless God is raising those nations up as punishment against Israel; like He did with Babylon, Niniveh and the Romans.

It may, when you look at it, just seem like armies are coming. But what is the spiritual power behind all of that? God and the angels and Satan and the demons!

"…'Behold, as the clay is in the potter's hands, so are you in My hand, O house of Israel…. [notice what's going on in the world right now]: …If at any time I shall speak concerning a nation, and concerning a kingdom, to pluck it up and to pull it down, and to destroy it; if that nation, against whom I have spoken, will turn from their evil, I will repent of the evil that I thought to do to them'" (vs 6-8). God always gives a space of repentance!

All of those who say that they represent God—even if they're Sunday-keepers—you better start telling about their sins and you who are telling them better start keeping the Sabbath! You are responsible for what is going on: the sickness, disease, crime and all of that.

Verse 9: "And if at any time I shall speak concerning a nation, and concerning a kingdom, to build it and to plant it; if it does evil in My sight, that it not obey My voice, then I will repent of the good with which I said I would do them good." (vs 9-10).

What is happening with everyone sheltering in place? Crime is down, drugs are down, as much as 35-40%! They can't get out, which tells you something. Let's hope that all of those who can't get their drugs will quit.

Isaiah 1:2: "Hear, O heavens, and give ear, O earth…"—just like we've been covering!

God operates on a fantastically large scale, universal, wouldn't you say? 

"…for the LORD has spoken, 'I have reared and brought up children, but they have rebelled against Me'" (v 2). That's all at the hands of these preachers and ministers!

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."

I wonder if you did a Water's World survey in New York City and ask, 'Who is God?' They give some of the dumbest answers possible when just asking, 'What Senator is this?'—or whatever.

Verse 4: "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" (vs 4-5).

Just look at how hard it is to try and change the deep state in Washington, D.C.! Think about it in the other nations of the world. It would be even harder, because they have no mechanisms of law to make any changes like we do in America. But this administration is being buffeted at every turn. I think the one thing that is holding it together right now is that the President himself is trying to do the right thing for the nation.

I want you to think about not only the nation, but what God is looking at financially with the whole world. Remember what happened in Venezuela, from wealth to abject poverty in ten years. Inflation is incredible; sickness and disease. So don't say that it couldn't happen here, because I'm going to show you that it's likely going to happen. Why would God do this?

Verse 12: "When you come to appear before Me, who has required this at your hand, to trample My courts? Bring no more vain sacrifices; incense is an abomination to Me—new moon and sabbath, the calling of assemblies—I cannot endure iniquity along with the solemn assembly! Your new moons and your appointed feasts…" (vs 12-14)—not His!

Go back and read the Feasts of the Bible (Lev. 23): 'These are My appointed Feasts that you shall observe in their seasons.'

  • Sabbath
  • Passover
  • Unleavened Bread
  • Pentecost
  • Trumpets
  • Atonement
  • Feast of Tabernacles
  • Last Great Day

Those aren't the ones that He hates; those are the ones He loves!

They go along for a long time and sound really Biblical after they get done with Easter in the spring. Then you come to Halloween. God is going to have no part of it, even though you put His name on it, because He despises those things! Why? Because they are of Satan the devil!

"…My soul hates; they are a trouble to Me; I am weary to bear them. And when you spread forth your hands, I will hide My eyes from you; yea, when you make many prayers, I will not hear; your hands are full of blood. Wash yourselves, make yourselves clean…" (vs 14-16).

Notice that all of this is to see if there will be any who will repent! Will there?

"…put away the evil of your doings…" (v 16).

We're all locked down and we have put away the evil of our doing by force! What's going to happen when they open the gate?

 "…put away the evil of your doings from before My eyes; cease to do evil; learn to do good…" (vs 16-17).

Every single home in America has a Bible and if you don't have a Bible, you go online and you can download for nothing a Faithful Version {afaithfulversion.org} and that's the best English translation in the world, in its proper order, with everything that God has that He wants you to know. Right there! It is there! If you have a Bible at home and you haven't read it, that's not God's fault! He sent it. It doesn't matter who brought it in or mailed it to you, or how you got it.

"'…seek judgment, reprove the oppressor. Judge the orphan; plead for the widow…. [here's what God wants with all nations (tie in with Jer. 18)]: …Come now, and let us reason together,' says the LORD. 'Though your sins are as scarlet, they shall be as white as snow; though they are red like crimson, they shall be like wool. If… [that word is always there, and all the IFs are upon us as human beings] …you are willing… [not rebellious and stubborn] …and obedient, you shall eat the good of the land; but if you refuse and rebel…'" (vs 17-20).

Again, I want to speak directly to any Sunday-keeper or minister who preaches Sunday, preaches that the Law has been done away, how dare you come before God and declare that YOU can nullify His Word, when Jesus said that 'heaven and earth shall pass away, but My words shall never pass away!' Think about that when you understand and know that Jesus was the Lord of the Old Testament, before He came in the flesh as Jesus Christ.

  • you think that you're doing good
  • you think that you're bringing people to salvation

You're not!

You like to read the Scriptures, the New Testament? Okay, let's read what Jesus says to every one of you teachers who are against Law—lawlessness!

You can be oh so good and oh so nice and sweet, and also effective in what you're doing and preaching, but if you reject the commandments of God—and in particularly the Sabbath commandment, because that one say to remember—but what do you do? You reject it! You say that's for the Jews! That's a lie! It's for all people! Read Isa. 56 & 58, for the Gentiles, too!

Matthew 7:21: "Not everyone who says to Me 'Lord, Lord'…"

Is that why you say about the Lord? The Lord this? The Lord that? Oh, Jesus, this? Oh, Jesus, that?

"…shall enter into the Kingdom of Heaven; but the one who is doing the will of My Father, Who is in heaven" (v 21).

It's not the will of God that the Law has been done away! Stop your lying pretense and bringing curses upon people and this nation because of your rotten behavior, and the politicians follow right behind you in lock step!

Verse 22: "Many will say to Me in that day… [because they think they're doing this, that and the other thing] …'Lord, Lord, did we not prophesy through Your name?….'"

  • Didn't we pray in Your name, Jesus?
  • Didn't we say 'Amen,' Jesus?
  • Didn't we say feed the poor?
  • Didn't we clothe the naked?

Didn't we do all of these things that You said to do? Jesus will say, 'Yes, you did, but you rejected My Sabbath!'

"'…And did we not cast out demons through Your name? And did we not perform many works of power through Your name?'" (v 22).

Jesus isn't going to say, 'Come here and let Me give you a big hug.'

Verse 23: "And then I will confess to them, 'I never knew you….'"

Why would He say that when you profess to know Him. Because if you do not keep the Sabbath, the seventh day of the week, as God has said, you don't know Him! The spirit that you have is not from God, the true God, but from Satan the devil himself, a false self-righteous spirit!

That's why Jesus said in John 8 to the chief priests and the scribes and Pharisees, 'You are of your father, the devil!' The devil can be sweet, sanctimonious, nice and rewarding because he controls the whole world. You decide who you're going to serve!

"...Depart from Me, you who work lawlessness" (v 23).

Isn't that what you do when you stand in the pulpit and tell all the people who believe you? They're sitting there with their Bibles open and you say, 'The Law has been done away!' You are the cause of these problems, and all who follow you! God wants repentance!

Hosea 4 describes this as nothing else does!

(go to the next track)

For all of those who look at the churches, we do live in a Laodicean age. That brings about the problem that even people in the Churches of God do not listen to God the way that God wants you to listen to Him.

Hosea 4:1: "Hear the Word of the LORD, children of Israel…"

We are the children of Israel, and we are to hear the Word of the Lord. We are the people of God in His Church and we better hear the Word of God and not talk back to God (Rev. 3) as the Laodiceans say, 'We've got everything!' When you get to that point, you're in trouble with God!

"…for the LORD has a controversy with the inhabitants of the land… [the world and with Israel, both] …'There is no truth, nor mercy, nor knowledge of God in the land…. [what knowledge is there is perverted] …By swearing, and lying, and killing, and stealing, and the committing of adultery they break out; and blood touches blood. Therefore, shall the land mourn…'" (vs 1-3).

Are we going to see lot's of food in the future? Better think about it!

"…and everyone who dwells in it shall languish, with the beasts of the field and with the birds of the heavens. Yes, the fish of the sea shall also be taken away. Yet, let no man strive, nor reprove another, for your people are as those who strive with the priest. And you shall stumble in the day, and the prophet also shall stumble with you in the night, and I will destroy your mother. My people are destroyed for lack of knowledge…." (vs 3-6).

  • Why do we have all the problems that we do?
  • Why? Because:
  • people are not taught the Word of God
  • people are not taught the Laws of God
  • they are not taught the way of God

Look at what we have. Take ever major city and all the problems that are in those cities starting with drugs. Who profits the most by it? The super-elite over everything! Why? Because they're not taught the Truth!

"…Because you have rejected knowledge… [that's why there's no knowledge of a lot of things] …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" (v 6). Remember that!

Wouldn't you say that this generation of children are forgotten? Turn over to Disney with all their hi-tech devices. Look at them, it's pure absolute demonism in cartoons. I could say a whole lot more about Walt Disney, but he's a purveyor of the worst things possible for children and society.

Verse 7: "As they were increased, so they sinned against Me. I will change their glory into shame. 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" (vs 7-9).

Isn't that it? Isn't that what happens? Always happens! Unless you come to God and repent through Jesus Christ, have your sins forgive and start loving God and obeying God on a mass scale.

There's a new book out: A Great Awakening is Coming! by Mike Evans, which is going to lead into the one-world religion and the false prophet!

Verse 10: "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 10-11). That's what happens with drugs, too! And it's very difficult with some drugs.

Let's read some of the prophecies for the children of Israel. Just note that Psa. 78 says that the children of Israel flatter God when he slays them, but their hearts are not right with Him.

Deut 28—these are all of the problems of iniquity that come upon the children of Israel because they sin. When you read the first part of it:

Deuteronomy 28:1—here is where the key is set: "And it shall come to pass, if you shall hearken diligently unto the voice of the LORD your God…"—that's the most important thing; that's why He has it written down.

What was the problem with Adam and Eve? They listened to the voice of the serpent instead of listening to the voice of God!

"…to observe and to do all His commandments, which I command you today, the LORD your God will set you on high above all nations of the earth" (v 1). Then He lists all the blessings! Everyone wants those.

I want you to read every single verse in Deut. 28 and as you do, you will find that the perfectly describes the health of this nation today. Maybe not to the nth degree, but it will, because in the process of time it will be more fully fulfilled.

Deuteronomy 28:37: "And you shall become an astonishment, a proverb, and a byword among all nations where the LORD shall lead you. You shall carry much seed out into the field and shall gather little in, for the locust shall eat it" (vs 37-38). We'll look at that in a little bit.

Verse 39: "You shall plant vineyards and dress them, but shall neither drink the wine nor gather, for the worm shall eat them. You shall have olive trees throughout all your coasts, but you shall not anoint yourself with the oil, for your olive tree shall drop off its fruit" (vs 39-40). God has ways to get His point across!

Verse 41: "You shall beget sons and daughters, but you shall not enjoy them…"

  • Sound like today?
  • Do you have trouble in your family?
  • Trouble with your kids?

There are in Deut. 28 14 blessings and 54 curses!

Verse 22: "The LORD shall strike you with lung disease and with a fever…" [Wuhan Coronavirus?] …and with an inflammation, and with an extreme burning, and with the sword, and with blasting, and with mildew. And they shall pursue you until you perish." Remember that when there is no repentance the penalty comes!

Verse 42: "All your trees and the fruit of your land the locust shall possess."

What is true, what I want you to understand is not only is this for the children of Israel, but God judges all nations! It's going to be astonishing what's taking place! People go along and it gets really bad, and people say that it can't get much worse, but that's just what it's going to get—much worse!

Verse 43: "The stranger dwelling among you shall get up above you very high, and you shall come down very low." We're right in the middle of that process right now!

Verse 44: "He shall loan to you, and you shall not loan to him. He shall be the head, and you shall be the tail. And all these curses shall come on you, and shall pursue you and overtake you, until you are destroyed because you did not obey the voice of the LORD your God to keep His commandments and His statutes, which He commanded you" (vs 44-45).

I dare anyone out there to show me one commandment or one statute or one saying of God or Jesus Christ that is not right! Whether for good, or for correction and evil!

Verse 46: "And they shall be on you for a sign and for a wonder, and on your seed forever. Because you did not serve the LORD your God with joyfulness and with gladness of heart for the abundance of all things" (vs 46-47).

All you Laodiceans out there, listen up. When you say you have need of nothing, because you've grown rich and increased with goods, v 47 tells you what you need to do: repent! Otherwise you will serve your enemies!

Here are a good number of reports, and you don't hear anything about this on the regular news, but today we have the Internet and a lot of alternate news so that we can get these things.

Disaster Disrupting Food Supply

Have you gone to the store and seen some empty shelves lately? Costco or Sam's Club—or whatever other club that is like that—are filled with all kinds of goods. You can get anything you want, but if you go into the dairy section and you want to buy eggs, or to where the canned fish is—which is in a stack of four, five or eight—what does it say, 'One per customer.' We went over to Costco and she loaded up on fish and put is all in her basket and the checker said, 'You can't have this, because you can only have one.'

  • What is that? Rationing!
  • Why? Because there's a coming breakdown in the food chain!

Disaster Disrupting Food Supply: The One Thing All Catastrophes Have in Common is A Breakdown in the Food Chain
(All News Pipeline) by Susan Duclos {allnewspipeline.com/Disaster_Disrupting_Food_Supply_1.php}

No matter the disaster, be it economic collapse, natural disaster, flooding and early freezes decimating crops and harvests, or as we are witnessing now, a pandemic, the one thing each of these events have in common, is they cause a food supply disruption as the food chain breaks down.

Think about all the things that have happened, everything that has been shut down.

We in the Independent Media have long warned that food was going to become a problem eventually, watching things get worse as event after event piled onto each others, all effecting the food supply.

Flooding hit the mid-West prevented farmers from planting on time, with some not able to plant at all. Those same floods also destroying the livestock and livelihood of other ranchers. Then came an early freeze which rushed the harvest of crops that already had a late start in planting.

Other issues across the globe effected other food items and chains, such as the mass slaughter of chickens in China…

  • 145 million chickens had to be slaughtered
  • 150-million pigs had to be slaughtered

Think about that, because China is bluffing right now trying to say that they're as good as America and take over. They're bluffing so they can get out and go someplace and attack someplace so they can get some food. But they wouldn't dare tell you that.

…reported on in February, 2020, along with a worldwide shortage of pork coming from China's swine flu issues in late 2019.

AND THEN CAME COVID-19 CORONAVIRUS

Many know by now that as soon as the mainstream media finally started reporting on the COVID-19 Coronavirus pandemic, many rushed to the stores and started panic shopping…

Did you do that? Did you get some things? I know what I did, I contacted a wholesale dealer that I know and we've got five cartons of toilet paper!

…emptying shelves of cleaning supplies, toilet paper, frozen pizzas (Yeah, I know, not the smartest choices), and only survival food companies started seeing a massive influx of orders, enough to now have notices at the top of their pages stating shipping and delivery could take a month or three.

That's assuming that they're able to restock! None of us today grow any of our own food. We don't know. You plant a seed and:

  • How long does it take to grow?
  • How long does it take to ripen?
  • How long does it take to harvest it?
  • How long does it take for apples to get ripe? Plums? Berries?

All of those good thing that you have!

  • How about milk?

That is only one set of problems though that affect the food supply chain. There are shortages and then a shortage of consumers for other products, leaving an over-supply of products that is having to be destroyed, dumped or killed

Looking a little deeper, we see that due to the closures, albeit schools, restaurants or other large consumers of certain products, tens of thousands of chickens have been euthanized because of a drop in eggs sales.

Tens of millions of gallons of milk has been dumped, for the same reason.

They're not selling it to schools and colleges! What's that going to do?

The problem isn't a shortage of food and commodities. If anything, food waste is becoming a bigger issue as traditionally big, bulk buyers—like college dorms and restaurant chains — suddenly stop receiving deliveries. As a result, millions of gallons of milk are being dumped, and farmers have no alternative but to turn fresh vegetables into mulch.

Didn't even think about that, did you? On the news this morning they said that large organizations like Costco have to go outside the food chain to get meat. Remember when you had that favorite last steak? And the price has been going up and up! You still wanted to treat yourself to something nice, so you spent $12.50/lb. The question is, when is it going to be #100/lb?

Second wave of locusts in east Africa said to be 20 times worse

UN warns of 'alarming and unprecedented threat' to food security and livelihoods in the region

A second wave of desert locusts is threatening east Africa with estimates that it will be 20 times worse then the plague that descended two months ago.

they lay eggs and the eggs hatch

The locusts present "an extremely alarming and unprecedented threat" to food security and livelihoods, according to the UN. A swarm of just more than a third of a square mile can eat the same amount of food in one day as 35,000 people.

This second invasion from breeding grounds in Somalia includes more young adults which are especially voracious eaters.

In its latest locust watch update, the UN said the situation was "extremely alarming" as an increasing number of new swarms form in north and central Kenya, Ethiopia and Somalia.

Hellen Adoa, a minister at Uganda's agriculture department, said: "This is very active, destructive and we are worried it has come at the time of lockdown….

Just when everybody has to be quarantined!

…We are a bit overwhelmed. The moment they arrive in a place the first thing they do is to eat anything green. They have destroyed some fields of crops and vegetation," she said.

Christine Apolot, the chairperson for Uganda's Kumi district, which was hit by a swarm last week, said people were filled with despair, having already endured flooding and the previous swarm: "This is seriously going to bring food insecurity….

What did we read about things in Matt. 24 and Luke 21? Famines, pestilence, earthquakes; they are happening!

"As we were hopeful of to receive some relief food to support the situation on ground, the locust invaded and Covid-19 lockdown is moving towards devastating the economy.

It takes a long time to grow, process and get ready. But everybody who shops in the supermarket, like this little girl was asked: 'Where does milk come from?' It comes from a carton! Never heard of a cow.

"We expect government, number of partners and World Food Programme to come to our rescue with relief food. Otherwise our people will end with starvation."

You can't eat them now because they're sprayed with poisons! These locust are monstrous, great huge things.

The Next Generation: Giant Locust Armies Of "Biblical Proportions" Threaten To Cause Mass Starvation In Africa—Michael Snyder {https://loveforhispeople.com/2020/04/24/the-next-generation-giant-locust-armies-of-biblical-proportions-threaten-to-cause-mass-starvation-in-africa-michael-snyder/}

Yesterday, I reported that the UN had used the phrase "biblical proportions" to describe the famines that are starting to happen around the globe as a result of the Coronavirus pandemic.

We're going to see that it's in all East Africa and Southwestern Australia, into Yemen, Iran and over to the western border of China. Those swarms of locust will eat everything!

Headlines:

  • Biblical Famines could double global hunger as the result of the Coronavirus crisis
  • UN Warns of "Hunger Pandemic" amid threats of Coronavirus

Africa is going to be hit hard!

  • Coronavirus could double number of people going hungry globally

These are things that are real and take place, and are right now in motion as we are speaking and listening.

If they come to us to get food, we give them the food, and after that we have a total crop failure the next year, guess what? What does this tell us? Unless there is some kind of repentance and change, we are staring these things right in the face! Then look at all the storms and tornadoes across the southeast.

  • Record heat possible for California, Southwest raises fears beaches will be 'overrun' despite Coronavirus

What's going to happen here? I've been watching this cherry orchard just north of town. We've had a lot of rain and they've had a hard time getting it warm enough for bees to get out of the hives to pollinate so they can have cherries. I wonder if there will be cherries, and how many there will be.  I wonder what the price will be, $7/lb? What was it last year? $5/lb. I think! Then they have the storms in the Northeast!

  • There will be worse famine in Zambia in 2020

That's East Africa!

  • Locust Plague begins to strike farmers in Western New South Wales, Australia

What did they just go through? Fire! Everything burned down, now everything left is going to be eaten down!

There's so much on this it's almost impossible to go through it. Here's one on China. These are from reports in China that they've gotten out, which the government doesn't want out. But they're going to get out because there are a lot of Chinese who are beginning to rebel against the government over there.

The China Apocalypse by Rod Dreher (The American Conservative) {https://www.theamericanconservative.com/dreher/china-apocalypse-buddhist-prophecy-locusts/}

If these stories from China are true, I don't necessarily fault our media for not reporting them; I am sure that the Chinese government has things on intense lockdown, and would not let Western journalists into the most heavily affected areas. What I find interesting, though, is that these apocalyptic images of fighting locusts are being broadcast on Chinese television (which they watch via satellite), but are not being spoken of in the US media. The Daily Beast just posted a piece about the unusual threat from locusts this year, and how the Chinese state media has been trying to downplay it.

The way that they fight them is to get these huge, gigantic blowtorches and go out in the midst of them and just fry them!

The Doctor has the right take on it—he doesn't know if it is authentic or fake, but the more important aspect of the story is that lots of Chinese elites believe it could be true, and are passing the thing around on social media….

…It is being taken seriously by educated Chinese people, and they may act on it.

Think about this: You've heard of the 'wet markets' and what do they eat from the 'wet markets'? Every wild beast including bats!

Why? Could it be that the food supply is short and there's nothing much else to eat but that? The Chinese wouldn't tell you; that's what this is all about!

As a consequence, nobody trusts anybody. Now, she said, these elderly people are safe in an assisted living facility in America, but they can't allow themselves to relax and to trust the others around them.

This is quite a long report, but it's getting around and they can't stop it. Here is a prophecy by one of their own historians:

"The year 2020 – The year all of China will weep. The omens will be so bad that the New Year will not be celebrated. Then the plague will come…."

Remember what they had with the Wuhan virus; that was whole lot worse. Some estimates of what we have here in America—remember, they had the first round of the virus coming out very strong, and people were dropping dead like flies. So, whatever got out of that laboratory, wherever it came from, it was strong. As it's passed along it becomes increasingly less dangerous.

But they probably had 3-400,000 Chinese die, minimum, and it's infected everything. Now they say there's another batch coming along that arises out of those who had the strong first part of it who survived.

But the more fundamentally amazing thing is the fact that this has been shared and commented on by thousands of Chinese elite. In complete defiance of the Communist Party which has done everything it can to stamp out their ancient religion and all its signs and portents.

The plague that would come, and I'll read a little more of that:

"It will come with a fury – the tigers and the wolves will hide in the mountains. The plague will encompass all the land – and will eventually spread to the whole world. Very soon – rice will become so expensive that no one can eat. Then the rivers will sink all the boats. People in that year will only be able to harvest rice in the very early spring. There will be no harvest of late season rice, beans, wheat, and oats because vast clouds of locusts will lay waste to the entire countryside. I, Gentleman Zigong, assure you Chinese in 2020 that the locusts will fall from the skies and the destruction will be complete. Smoke and fire will fill the fields—but nothing will be able to stop the swarms."

Then it talks in another report that another part of China the animals are dying, and they can't bury them so the stench is just rising up. So, look out for China to be suffering some pretty terrible things.

If you're sensitive to any bee sting, you get stung by this, you're dead!

What does God want out of all of this?

This is a result of all their sins coming back upon them! God has clearly delineated in His Word that this will happen if you sin. But how many people read the Word of God to find out? Very few! So, God says:

Amos 4:6: "'And I also have given you cleanness of teeth in all your cities… [lack of food] …and lack of bread in all your places, yet, you have not returned to Me,' says the LORD." God wants repentance! That's what He wants!

Verse 7: "And I have also withheld the rain from you, when there were yet three months to the harvest. And I caused rain to fall on one city and caused it not to rain on another city; one field was rained on, and the field on which it did not rain dried up. So, two or three cities wandered to one city to drink water… [we have seen that] …but they were not satisfied; yet, you have not returned to Me,' says the LORD" (vs 7-8).

Verse 9: "'I have stricken you with blasting and mildew. When your gardens and your vineyards, and your fig trees, and your olive trees increased, the creeping locust devoured them; yet, you have not returned to Me,' says the LORD. 'I have sent the plague among you after the manner of Egypt; I have slain your young men with the sword…'" (vs 9-10).

  • How many have been killed?
  • How many wars have we been in?

As Trump has said, '$8-tillion in the Middle East!

  • For what?

"'…and have taken away your horses. And I have made the stench of your camps to come up into your nostrils; yet, you have not returned to Me,' says the LORD. 'I have overthrown some among you as God overthrew Sodom and Gomorrah, and you were like a firebrand plucked out of the burning; yet, you have not returned to Me,' says the LORD" (vs 10-11). The closest you have to that is 9/11!

This is what God wants, v 12; you're going to meet God one way or another! Everyone is going to answer to God one way or another!

Verse 12: "'Therefore, I will do this to you, O Israel; and because I will do this to you, prepare to meet your God, O Israel!'"

Here is what God wants. The only way these things will diminish for a while is if this happens:

Amos 5:4: "For thus says the LORD to the house of Israel, [#1]'Seek Me, and you shall live.'" Return to God and seek Him!

Verse 5: "But do not seek Bethel…" What does Bethel mean? House of God! That's what it originally meant, but it became a pagan place! Today, don't go back to the Sunday-keeping pagan-keeping churches that call themselves 'Christian.'

"'…nor enter into Gilgal, and do not pass to Beersheba; for Gilgal shall surely go into exile, and Bethel shall come to nothing. [#2]Seek the LORD and you shall live, lest He break out like a fire on the house of Joseph and devour it, and there be none to quench it in Bethel—you who turn judgment to wormwood and leave off righteousness in the earth!' [#3] Seek Him… [that's what God says] …Who created the Pleiades and Orion, and Who turned the deep darkness into the morning, and Him Who darkened the day into night. [#4]Seek Him" (vs 5-8).

Here's what you're to do. The pattern in the Bible is that whenever these things come along—these disasters and so forth—God is offering repentance if they would! But it's choice that needs to be made!

For those of us in the Churches of God, we've got to make the choice that we have got to apply these things to our lives, as well.

Verse 14: "Seek good and not evil, that you may live; and so the LORD, the God of hosts, shall be with you, as you have spoken. Hate the evil, and love the good…" (vs 14-15).

That starts with returning to keeping the laws and commandments of God. Evil is the transgression of the Law. God wants you to do that so He can bless you, so that He will keep you in times of trouble!

"…and establish judgment in the gate. It may be that the LORD God of hosts will be gracious to the remnant of Joseph" (v 15)—Ephraim and Manasseh, and from that the rest of the world for the time being!

But if there is not, and it must begin with the Churches of God and the ministers within the Churches of God, in teaching and helping the brethren. Then it's got to go to all the Sunday-keepers. You must stop keeping Sunday and the pagan days of this world and return to God with all your heart!

That's what God wants! He's not going to settle for anything less! He's not going to settle for the half-baked gospel that you preach with all the lies and paganism mixed in with it.

It isn't going to work! We are at a critical point! We are standing on the precipice of many evil things to happen that will come suddenly, like a tornado. You don't expect it and one day the dark cloud is there, and then your home and your whole neighborhood is blown away!

God wants us to understand these things. This is necessary. We could preach nice things about how to be better people and be nicey nice to each other, but unless you love God and keep His commandments all of that is just so much whitewash on this tottering, bowing wall that's going to crumble!
