Greetings, everyone! Welcome to Sabbath services!

Have you been watching the news lately; there's a lot going on? Did you see about Facebook or Google and what they can do with artificial intelligence and a video of you? They can make you say anything and move your lips as if you were saying those exact words!

Delores and I were watching the news and there it came up. They can make you say anything, and if they bring it into court, what's going to happen? Anything that comes in with a video will have to be challenged that it wasn't tampered with, with artificial intelligence. They can make you say anything, and if they don't do that, then they can convict you of anything that they want to.

It's like the 'deep state' is not willingly it's hold on the government. That's what you see going on in Washington, D.C., and everywhere. Look at California declaring the NRA a domestic terrorist group. Well, let's look at some things concerning prophecy today. We're going to cover many different things concerning prophecy that have come up. I think it's going to surprise you, much like this Facebook thing.

But first of all, let's see what's going on, because as we were watching the news, Delores made the comment that there's not too much worth saving. It's so corrupt! Let's look at how this is happening:

Matthew 24:10: "And then shall many be led into sin…" That's our whole educational system, and now those who used to be liberal and wanted to hear all sides of everything, are becoming either Communists or Fascists, and if you don't agree with them, they're going to come after you with all things blazing!

Drew Breese—quarterback for the New Orleans Saints—gave a message to the children: take your Bible to school and love one another! The radical militant left came after him, 'How dare you do this?'

I don't know his comeback, but I'd stand up and say, 'How dare you come back after me, that's my free choice of exercising my freedom of speech. If you don't like it, take me to court!' But that tells you where it's heading.

There are people who are afraid that Donald Trump may lose, and if he loses, guess what's going to happen? Think what's going to happen if 'Pocahontas' and Bernie Sanders become President and Vice-President?

There will be videotapes of everybody that have had artificial intelligence make them mean, nasty, hateful and rebellious against the government, and mass arrests will begin to take place. Think it won't happen? All you need to do—and I think you'll hear a lot of this during the election—is look at Venezuela! Do you want to become like Venezuela? Eventually, it will!

"...and shall betray one another, and shall hate one another" (v 10). That's just the way it is! Is there anything that President can do that the hateful media does not come against him?

Trump gave a special on the coming hurricane, that they were getting prepared for it, and the weather gurus gave him a picture where they projected it was to come. It was to come right across Florida into the panhandle and into Mississippi and Alabama. So, he showed the picture. Well the hurricane changed its mind and didn't go where they projected.

So, the hateful media, after saying how terrible, dumb and stupid Trump is, and they're the ones.

Look at what people are up against today! "…and shall hate one another."

Verse 11: "And many false prophets shall arise, and shall deceive many." And that is true! I just got two more papers that I'm going through right now!

There are still some who do not understand about the two goats of Lev. 16 for the Day of Atonement. I'll have to answer those.

Verse 12: "And because lawlessness shall be multiplied…" The KJV says 'abound.'

Look at what it is, just the state of California. What are they going to do when the Bubonic Plague hits Los Angeles, San Francisco, Portland and Seattle? It's too late to scoop up the poop!

There's even one leader of a Church of God who said not to send him anything concerning doctrine, I don't want to answer it.

  • How are you going to know the Truth if you don't defend it?
  • How are you going to know who is sneaking in to take you down?

Maybe that person saying that is one of those who snuck in and he's going to take down that church!

What I have found out from different people in different Churches of God—so, if you're in some of these other Churches of God, you'd better listen up—they want you happy, contented, paying the tithes and offerings so they can all retire on you!

That's why they don't want any difficulties, because they don't want anyone leaving their church for the Truth, because 'only they have the Truth.'

A man sent me an e-mail that he wants to setup a Church of God network. All the churches are supposed to join him, who is president and chief executive officer, and that's how he wants to support himself. I sent him a nice e-mail back:

I think you're going in the wrong direction! If you look at what happened—what God did to the Church—He destroyed it and scattered it, and that's His will! God wants to test who's going to be faithful under all circumstances. If God wanted the Church to be whole He wouldn't have scattered it.

So, I don't want anything to do with this. I'm not going to phone you or have any comments more than this: that we should follow what God has set us in and make the best we can with that, and let God take care of it for us! Rather than have some man come along and 'organize'; whenever you do that, all doctrine comes to the lowest level of acceptance, otherwise you're going to offend somebody.

"…the love of many shall grow cold" (v 12).

But notice, this tells us that we have something very important to do under all circumstances:

Verse 13: "But the one who endures… [not gives up, not gives in, doesn't compromise] …to the end, that one shall be saved."

All of those who are in the Church are nice and just getting along and everything is fine, it's good if you love one another. But unless you're growing in grace and knowledge, and unless you're preparing to be able to withstand the things that Christ said are coming, what are you going to do?

Verse 14: "And this Gospel of the Kingdom shall be proclaimed in all the world for a witness to all nations, and then shall the end come."

We know that the two witnesses are going to do a good deal of that the last three and a half years. But we never stop doing what we need to do and say, 'We'll let the two witnesses do it; we don't have to do anything.' NO! We've got to keep at it and keep going ahead the way that we need to.

Commercial: What is the most important publication that we have besides the Bible? The catalog of all that we have: Catalog of Christian Biblical Church of God Literature

We have nearly 140 right now special studies, including booklets. We have more than any Church of God in going through the Bible and doing things with the Bible. That's not bragging, it's just stating a fact. It's all verified by the Truth

Verse 21—it all going to culminate in this: "For then shall there be Great Tribulation, such as has not been from the beginning of the world until this time, nor ever shall be again." What are we facing? Most difficult times!

Verse 22: "And if those days were not limited, there would no flesh be saved… [That's pretty dire, isn't it? Yes, indeed!] …but for the elect's sake those days shall be limited." That's for us!

Mark 13:12: "Then shall brother betray brother to death, and the father the child. And children shall rise up against their parents and shall put them to death. And you shall be hated by all men for My name's sake; but the one who endures to the end, that one shall be saved" (vs 12-13).

Verse 19: "For in those days shall be great tribulation, such as has not been the like from the beginning of the creation that God created… [referring to the earth] …until this time, nor ever shall be again; and unless the Lord had limited the days, no flesh would be saved; but for the sake of the elect, whom He has chosen, He has limited the days" (vs 19-20).

A question came up about "…until this time, nor ever shall be again…" that's has to be the earth, because the war that was in heaven between Lucifer and the angels and God and the angels was quite a different story.

Let's see what 1-Tim. says about how the world will be. Let's put this together and this helps tell us why it's going to be so bad. We'll put some other Scriptures with this to get the whole picture.

1-Timothy 4:1: "Now, the Spirit tells us explicitly that in the latter times some shall apostatize from the faith…" We have seen that!

There was a large Church of God just north of us that had 450 people. Now on a good day they will have 30. Where did they go? A few went to other churches, but most just went back into the world! Is that the will of God to test them? Of course!

"…and shall follow deceiving spirits…" (v 1). There are a lot of deceiving spirits!

A woman wrote me and said that years ago her son brought in a Ouija Board into the house and 'we have had problems with demons since then.' Now, you might think that couldn't be. What gives the power to the Ouija Board? The demons!

"…and doctrines of demons; speaking lies in hypocrisy…" (vs 1-2). That sure is true!

That Democrat woman Marianne Williamson had to drop out of the race for President, and she found out, 'I've never been around a bunch of lying people in my life as these people are. She said that 'just because there are lot of people praying that the hurricane wouldn't come and slam directly into the east coast of the United States, all of those super-hateful progressives pooh-poohed the whole idea of them praying.

  • Well, did it miss most of it? Yes!
  • Who made it turn and go north? God!

If they were praying to God and believing in God, God did!

Williamson's eyes were open to the total lying hypocrisy of the Democrats. But if they get in and run the government, you know what's going to happen!

"…their consciences having been cauterized with a hot iron" (v 2).

Let's see what's happening with 2-Tim. 3:13, and string all of these verses together and see what a picture that this brings, the condition of the world today.

2-Timothy 3:13: "But wicked men and imposters shall become worse and worse… [Isn't that true?] …deceiving others and being deceived themselves." If you lie to yourself, that's the worst kind of lie, if you believe the lie that you have told yourself.

2-Timothy 2:25: "In meekness correcting those who set themselves in opposition; if perhaps God may grant them repentance unto acknowledging of the Truth, and that they may wake up and escape from the devil's snare, who have been taken captive by him to do his will" (vs 25-26).

Amazing! Look at what the attack is against the Church. We might say has been! Not was, but is and has been! Here is how all of this comes together with Satan the devil. Satan has the people and the demons that he uses, the media he uses. Hollywood has exposed themselves to the hateful bunch of Fascists that they really are.

Revelation 12:9: "And the great dragon was cast out, the ancient serpent who is called the Devil and Satan, who is deceiving… [present tense participle] …the whole world…"—not just part!

We're going to cover some reports to show how that is working.

Isa. 59 tells us what is going on in the world, especially in America, because all the progressives have succeeded in getting rid of God, getting rid of the Bible as much as possible, and those 'Christian' organizations have been very cooperative because they have made themselves look like idiots as well. So, anyone with half a brain wouldn't want to join that. If that's Christian, why would you want to follow that?

The Presidential candidate Buttigieg, the homosexual who is married to a man, quotes the Bible. He says that abortion is okay because you're not a person until you breathe. NO! I have report that says the majority of scientists say that life begins at conception. Why? Because that's when the spirit of man is given! If there is not the spirit of man given to that new conception, there's no life! Without the spirit the body is dead. The newly conceived life partakes of the breathe of life from its mother through the placenta. But they want to justify killing as many people as possible.

Then Bernie Sanders says that you have to have abortion everywhere in the world to stave off—especially in the third world—climate change. Well, Bernie, since you're so old, I'm surprised you haven't volunteered to give up your life to save the world.

Isaiah 59:1: "Behold, the LORD'S hand is not shortened that it cannot save, nor is His ear heavy that it cannot hear." Nothing wrong with God! He's always the same: yesterday, today and forever!

Verse 2: "But your iniquities… [when you sin] …have come between you and your God, and your sins have hid His face from you, that He will not hear."

Think of that with Buttigieg, living the life that he's living, married to whom he's married and quoting the Scriptures improperly!

Verse 3: "For your hands are defiled with blood…" What's the most blood that defiles the hands? Abortion!

"…and your fingers with iniquity; your lips have spoken lies… [How about that with the media? that's all they do is lie!] …your tongue has muttered perverseness. None calls for justice…" (vs 3-4)—real justice, Godly justice! Everybody is wondering if anybody in the 'deep state' even stand trial?

"…nor does anyone plead for Truth… [let alone from the pulpit] …they trust in vanity and speak lies. They conceive mischief and bring forth iniquity" (v 4). Then what happens? Everything goes crazy!

Verse 5: "They hatch adders' eggs and weave the spider's web; he who eats their eggs dies, and that which is crushed breaks out into a viper." In other words, every evil thing will be magnified when it gets to that!

Verse 7: "Their feet run to evil, and they make haste to shed innocent blood; their thoughts are thoughts of iniquity; wasting and destruction are in their paths."

That is a perfect description of all the media movies that they are making today. Nothing but destruction, destruction, destruction: war, fighting, killing and all of this sort of thing. Then invasion from outer space. That's going to happen at the resurrection and the return of Christ. It's going to be something when that occurs.

Verse 8: "They have not known the way of peace…" Isn't that true?

We were also discussing all these generals—at least General Mattis had a little proper conduct after he resigned. He wouldn't talk about the President. Give him kudos for that. But these generals want war! War everywhere! We've been 18 years[transcriber's correction] in Afghanistan! Just leave and let them kill themselves! If they start organizing into a terror group, go in and use the MOAB bomb. You know what that is, don't you? That's the largest non-nuclear bomb! We used one in Afghanistan. Dropped it right into the cave of one of the leading antagonists and took care of him.

Why do we have all of this coming up? Read the account in 1-Kings 11, that because of the sins of Solomon, what did God do? He raised up Hadad, the Syrian! Does that sound familiar today? Yes! If we don't repent of our evil, God is going to send other people to bring more evil!

Everybody is all upset because of the carnage of these guns, and that's bad. But very few are upset about the killing of the most innocent, which is a flagrant violation of the pact that the founders made with God in declaring the Declaration of Independence: the right to life! So, they're all being hypocrites!

Verse 9: "Therefore, justice is far from us; nor does righteousness overtake us. We wait for light, but behold, darkness; for brightness, but we walk in deep shadows. We grope along the wall like the blind, and we grope as if we had no eyes. We stumble at noonday as in the night; among those who are strong, we are like dead men" (vs 9-10).

Isn't that true? A comment was made the commentator Lou Dobbs: What on earth is wrong with the Republican Party; no one is going to stand up for the President? There it is right there! Like dead men, doing nothing!

Verse 11: "We all roar like bears, and mourn grievously like doves; we look for justice, but there is none, we look for salvation, yet, it is far from us; for our transgressions are multiplied before You, and our sins testify against us; for our transgressions are with us; and as for our iniquities, we know them" (vs 11-12)—but we don't know how to stop! Where is the first place to stop?

  • recognize them and repent
  • start keeping the Sabbath so you will be in contact with God

Without those two, and stopping all the murders and abortions, it isn't going to happen! Let's see how this is magnified right in front of our eyes.

Actually, when you go through Isa. 5 & 10, there are seven woes!

Isaiah 5:8: [#1]Woe to those who join house to house, that lay field to field, until there is no place left, and you are made to dwell alone in the midst of the land!"

Isn't that what we have today. Right here in Hollister that's exactly what's happening. They're building houses. We have a house on a 32,000 sq. foot lot. That's two lots. Now they're getting them down with only 5-feet between houses.

In San Francisco you have houses wall to wall! When I first came to San Francisco in 1965, I looked at those and wondered why they were all built this way. What are they? When I found out that they were houses, I was shocked. They buy and sell them like houses. If you neighbor has a fire, you've got it, too!

Stack it up with high-rises one after the other. Every time I look at Manhattan Island with all of those tall buildings there, and the river running nice and smooth right along, I think of the Scripture that says, 'and all the cities of the nations fell!'

God could cause an earthquake and sink everything there in a snap, just like that! The Chinese are going to get it, too, because they are going to announce that they are 'bigger, better and stronger than anybody else, and we are going to build the tallest building in the world'—700 meters! Woe to those who are at the top! I wonder if they will issue parachutes for emergency escape? But think about that building when all the cities of the earth collapse!

There's going to be a mammoth series of earthquakes that are going to shake all of these cities, and they are going to look like the Bahamas after the hurricane.
Verse 11: [#2]"Woe to those who rise up early in the morning to go after strong drink… [or drugs] …who continue late into the night while wine inflames them!"

Verse 18: [#3]"Woe to those who draw iniquity with cords of vanity… [that is Hollywood, all of the movies that is sin today] …and sin with cart ropes; who say, 'Let Him hurry and hasten His work, so that we may see it; and let the purpose of the Holy One of Israel draw near and come, so that we may know!'" (vs 18-19). That's in mockery against God!

As I have said before, I'm busy editing the Interlinear, and I came across this the other night, and it really stuck in my mind. Everyone thinks they can do it their way and they'll just be fine. All you're doing is repeating what Adam and Eve did. Every generation does that. Every new generation thinks it can correct all the sins and the problems of the old generation, and if not then they'll improve upon it. If not, then they'll change the laws so what was illegal can become legal. We will see that later.

Romans 9:19: "Will you then reply to me, 'Why does He yet find fault? For who has opposed His purpose?'"

No one is going to oppose the purpose of God. It is going to be done exactly as it said in the Bible. You can count on that. Just because it may not happen right now, or it may not be happening in our lifetime, it is going to happen!

  • no one can oppose God's plan
  • no one can say that the Bible is filled full of lies

NO! It's your head that's filled full of lies and sin!

Isaiah 5:20: [#4]"Woe to those who call evil good…" With some of these reports that we will read, that's exactly what they do. Not only do they call evil good, but they bless the evil as if it is good! Amazing!

"…and good evil; who put darkness for light and light for darkness; who put bitter for sweet and sweet for bitter! [#5]Woe unto them that are wise in their own eyes, and prudent in their own sight! [#6]Woe unto them that are mighty to drink wine, and men of strength to mingle strong drink: who justify the wicked for a bribe…" (vs 20-22).

Whoa! Think about that! It makes you wonder: What happened to Jeffrey Epstein? What a convenient death! The 'deep state; doesn't want anyone to know how sexually perverse and wretched those at that level are. Read Eph. 6, we're night fighting against flesh and blood, but against spiritual wickedness in high places.

Have you seen the latest National Inquirer, the headline; it said that the Queen of England ordered the murder of Epstein. That's what it said! Whether she did or didn't, somebody in the 'deep state' and the elite did! Or he conveniently did it himself so that no one could be convicted.

So, here's what's going to happen, and it gives the reason; v 24: "Therefore, as the fire devours the stubble, and the flame burns up the chaff; their root shall be like rottenness, and their blossoms shall go up like dust because…"

Every Protestant minister needs to read this, because you are the root cause, along with the Catholics, who call yourselves 'Christian,' who are bringing this upon this nation and the world.

"…they have cast away the Law of the LORD of hosts, and despised the Word of the Holy One of Israel" (v 24). That's why all of this is going on, right there!

After the break I'm going to cover a good number of reports that shows how many different things in prophecy are moving along at different rates of speed. Some are catching up with the others, and it's all going to come together so the picture will be complete.

(go to the next track)

Items in the news:

Vaping: You probably heard on the news, which has to do with vaping. It will zap you! They thought this was a good way to smoke without getting nicotine. Well, guess what? There's nicotine in the vaping. Plus you can get marijuana vaping and get the THC straight. So, what's happening? Every way of a man/woman is right in their own eyes, but the way thereof is death! So, you can get lung disease because of vaping.

Now here's one that will make you as angry as can be, but this is accepted as normal. This is a classic of what we read: Woe to those who call evil 'good' and good 'evil.'

  • Christian and Jewish Clergy Bless Abortion Clinic, Claim "God is Present in This Space"

{https://www.lifenews.com/2019/07/11/christian-and-jewish-clergy-bless-abortion-clinic-claim-god-is-present-in-this-space/}

Christian and Jewish clergy bless abortion clinic. Amelia Fulbright, the founder of Labyrinth Progressive Student Ministry, an ecumenical Christian organization in Austin, Texas.

She said they organized the "blessing" to encourage the patients as well as the abortion workers.

You can justify any evil. It's downward, downward, downward!Rush Limbaugh defines as 'defining deviancy downward.' The Bible says that 'a little leaven leavens the whole lump.'

"The first and foremost goal was to say that we support you and the work that you're doing, especially in a state where you're constantly having to meet new regulations or deal with critics and protesters," Rev. Amelia Fulbright, a campus minister in Austin, told the news outlet.

"As people of faith…

What a statement! Just because you wear a collar backward, or you belong to a church doesn't mean you're a person of faith, meaning the true faith! You can have faith in Satan the devil, which by the way, there are two other reports that I don't have with me, showing there's a temple of Satan in Detroit and in Canada with an actual statue with a male body and goat head, and two children there standing right below looking up at Satan!

That's going to be more and more! How bad will it get? I think this is just the starting of another more deep digression into sin!

…it's not that we think we're bringing God to this place; we believe God is already present in that space"…

Yes! The god Satan the devil himself, right there!

…Fulbright told the news outlet. "But it's to ask for prayers of safety, healing and peace, to infuse the space with an energy that is life-giving for women…

While killing the unborn!

…a lot of whom are in an anxious time."

The Rev. Katey Zeh, executive director of the Religious Coalition for Reproductive Choice, said they believe abortion is "sacred work."

For who? Satan the devil! And the abortion clinic is a blessed space!       People are really going to get excited and go do this other places.

The way of Satan the devil! Always accuse your opponent with what you do!

  • Bibles pulled from China's online bookstores as Beijing releases white paper on religious policy

{https://www.freerepublic.com/focus/f-religion/3644804/posts}

Everything has to be according to building up the Communist state, has to be supporting what they're doing, and they want to work it out so they can be in relationship is they Vatican. Years ago I gave a number of sermons from a book called All Roads Lead to Rome? by Michael De Semlyen. It's true, and we'll see that with some of these other reports.

  • Outrage as Australian judge says incest, pedophilia 'may be accepted' by society

{https://www.rt.com/news/171868-australia-judge-incest-homosexuality/}

An Australian judge has incurred the wrath of child protection and gay rights advocates after stating that incest and pedophilia may no longer be considered taboo – just as gay relationships are now more accepted than they were in the 1950s and 60s.

District Court Judge Garry Neilson was recorded as saying that sexual contact between adults and children or siblings may no longer be regarded by society as "unnatural" or "taboo."

How far will it go? Let's see what God says! You see what happens, all Protestants if there are any of you out there listening, you better wake up and pay attention. How do you like lawlessness in the land? You have caused it by lawlessness in your teaching, by saying that the Law is done away! You want the eternal unmitigated unconditional love of God, but you are not willing to love God! Loving God involves keeping His commandments, and you are responsible for this.

Let's read the Word of God, which you say was done away!

Leviticus 18:1: "And the LORD spoke to Moses, saying, 'Speak to the children of Israel and say to them, "I am the LORD your God. As they do in the land of Egypt where you dwelt, you shall not do. And you shall not do as they do in the land of Canaan, where I am bringing you. Neither shall you walk in their ordinances. You shall do My judgments…"'" (vs 1-4). Stop and think for a minute:

  • Is God perfect? Yes!
  • Is God love? Yes!
  • Is God righteous? Yes!
  • Would God do anything unrighteous? No!

Unrighteousness comes because you sin! God has made the laws automatic!

Verse 4: "You shall do My judgments and keep My ordinances, and walk in them. I am the LORD your God. And you shall keep My statutes and My judgments, which if a man does, he shall live in them…. [or by them] …I am the LORD" (vs 4-5). (also quoted in Gal. 4)

  • Is there anything wrong in walking in the Laws of God?
  • How could that possibly be sin? That's defining righteousness!

Remember the message I gave on Perfectville. Wouldn't you love to be in Perfectville?

  • everybody obey the Laws of God
  • have the right God
  • no statues
  • no idols
  • no taking God's name in vain
  • everybody keeping the Sabbath
  • children obeying their parents
  • no murder
  • no adultery
  • no lying
  • no cheating
  • no stealing
  • no coveting
  • no locks on doors
  • no policemen

You don't need them because everybody is self-governing! That's what God wants! But people don't want to do that, because they don't want to be told what to do. You make a choice to do evil!

Verse 6: "None of you shall approach to any who are near of kin to him to uncover their nakedness…. [sexual relations] …I am the LORD. You shall not uncover the nakedness of your father or the nakedness of your mother. She is your mother; you shall not uncover her nakedness" (vs 6-7) He goes through every relative within the family!

Verse 22—beyond your family: "You shall not lie with mankind as with womankind. It is an abomination to God."

With the alphabet perversion we have today, no telling who is doing what. God says you shouldn't! What good has it ever brought? Pray tell, all of you who believe in homosexuality, are you going to bring children to replace you when you die? You're going to die! All of you who think that all of these perversions are okay, what are you going to do when the working population becomes so small the few who are parents, married and have children, who is going to pay for your social security? If you don't have children, why should you receive it? Ever thought about that? God says that you shall not do it!

Verse 23: "And you shall not lie with any animal to defile yourself with it. And a woman shall not stand before an animal to lie down to it. It is a perversion. Do not defile yourselves in any of these things, for in all these the nations, which I cast out before you, are defiled. And the land is defiled. Therefore, I visit its wickedness against it…" (vs 23-25).

Think about that for a minute. God judges every nation that there is all the time, everywhere. None are exempt!

"…and the land itself vomits out those who live in it" (v 25). Quite a statement! The land becomes so terrible that you can't even live in it.

No one is exempt! No individual is removed from the Laws of God! If they don't have them and they discover some of the good things of the Law, God will bless them according to their knowledge of that. But none of them have the true God! The only ones that have the true God are the Churches of God, and they better wake up makes sure they don't cast Him away, too.

Jer. 18 is quite something, and because of these very sins, the things that we have just brought out here.

Jeremiah 18:1: "The Word, which came to Jeremiah from the LORD, saying, 'Arise and go down to the potter's house, and there I will cause you to hear My words.' Then I 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" (vs 1-4).

Verse 5: "Then the Word of the LORD came to me, saying, 'O house of Israel…'" (vs 5-6).We'll see that everything starts with Israel and then goes to other nations!

"'…can I not do with you even as this potter?' says the LORD. 'Behold, as the clay is in the potter's hands, so are you in My hand, O house of Israel'" (v 6).

You can't get away from God! I don't care who you are, the only way you're going to get away from God—temporarily—is if you die, then comes the resurrection. Either way, you can't get away from God! You can be thankful that God takes the spirit of man and stores that for a resurrection. Those who are converted and have the Spirit of God that goes right under the altar of God. Those who are not in that category, they're still going to face a resurrection, and you have to know about the Holy Days to find out about that.

Verse 7: "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."

Think about what has happened to all the nations down through history that this has happened to. Who was behind all of it? God and the angels, as well as Satan and the demons, and they can do no more than God gives them permission to! All you have to do is read Job 1 to find that out. Only what God allows!

God will release Satan and the demons upon evil people who are wanton killers! All you have to do is look at history. Especially look at the Middle East. That's all it's ever been: death, blood, guts and gore! God raises up and God takes down. God re-institutes, and God does all of those things Himself.

Verse 8: "IF… [God always gives a chance] …that nation, against whom I have spoken, will turn from their evil…"

That's right where we are now with the United States. Will we turn from all the evils that we have been doing? Will we, #1, cut down on abortion? I know they will never get rid of it totally, because there are too many laws on the books to preclude it from being totally eliminated. But teach enough so that people will know that life begins at conception and to reduce it to a point that God will hold back His heavy hand of punishment.
If not, it's going to come! Think about what God is going to do to those who are supposedly 'Christian ministers' blessing an abortion clinic! The day is going to come!

Verse 8: "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."

God gives space! What's the classic example? Jonah! The nation of Assyria, the capital city of Nineveh, the whole city repented in sackcloth and ashes. So, it can happen. But did Israel ever do that? No!

  • What's going to happen here?
  • How is it going to be?

This next year is going to tell quite story, between now and when the election is over in November of 2020. Then we will see what God's judgment really is: for a little space of time or for the onset of destruction, we will know!

Verse 9: "And if at any time I shall speak concerning a nation, and concerning a kingdom, to build it and to plant it." Hello, China, you have been slated to become great! But you are liars, cheaters, thieves and murderers! What will you do?

Verse 10: "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. Now, therefore, speak to the men of Judah, and to the people of Jerusalem, saying, "Thus says the LORD, 'Behold, I am forming evil against you and devising a plan against you. …'" (vs 10-11).

I know that a lot of Protestants won't like that. How could a God of love frame evil? Because you live evilly, so God is going to punish you! He will send the forces of evil; that's exactly what He will do.

"'…Return now, each one from his evil way, and make your ways and your doings good.' And they said, 'There is no hope…'" (vs 11-12). They say there maybe a little hope!

  • University of Chicago Ph.D. Student Surveys Thousands of Biologists and Most Agree that Life Begins at Conception

By Scott Slayton, Contributor to ChristianHeadlines.com | Thursday, July 11, 2019
{https://www.christianheadlines.com/contributors/scott-slayton/university-of-chicago-ph-d-student-surveys-thousands-of-biologists-and-most-agree-that-life-begins-at-conception.html}

A University of Chicago Ph.D. student recently defended a dissertation in which he asked thousands of biologists when life begins. A large majority of the biologists he surveyed, even those who are committed to the pro-choice position, said human life begins at conception.

How much hope there is in that, we don't know!

To show you how stupid it is on the campuses today. On the campus of Colorado State University you cannot use the word America. The left always wants to redefine it so that it's not evil. A felon who is someone who has been processed by the law.

  • NASA admits that climate change occurs because of changes in Earth's solar orbit, and NOT because of SUVs and fossil fuels

By Ethan Huff, September 1, 2019
{https://dcdirtylaundry.com/nasa-admits-that-climate-change-occurs-because-of-changes-in-earths-solar-orbit-and-not-because-of-suvs-and-fossil-fuels/}

It was the year 1958, to be precise, when NASA first observed that changes in the solar orbit of the earth…

Sometimes it goes fast, sometimes it goes slow! Sometimes it's nearer, and sometimes it's farther away. Sometimes it's tipping more than 23-degrees, sometimes it's not. How was the earth when:

  • all of South America was flatland and had row crops?
  • the ancient map had the outline of what is now Antarctica?
  • Greenland was growing grapes and making wine?

So, you think we have climate change today? It's nothing compared to that!

…along with alterations to the earth's axial tilt, are both responsible for what climate scientists today have dubbed as "warming" (or "cooling," depending on their agenda). In no way, shape, or form are humans warming or cooling the planet by driving SUVs or eating beef, in other words.

  • POPE FRANCIS ISSUES THE ORDER CREATING GLOBAL CHRISLAM COMMITTEE by Randolph Jason, Aug. 28, 2019

{https://gospelnewsnetwork.org/2019/08/28/pope-francis-issues-the-order-creating-global-chrislam-committee/}

Pope Francis and the imams have a new decree to implement. It's called Human Fraternity for World Peace signed at the United Arab Emirates in February. There's a picture and even kissing each other.

This latest Chrislam move by the Roman pope is a bold shot across the bow in creating the end times One World Religion spoken of in the book of Revelation in chapters 17 and 18.
Probably the start of the one-world religion! What the pope has said is that 'God has willed that there be different religions.' Think about that! The Catholics, less than a hundred years ago, said that the 'way to salvation is through the Catholic Church.' They killed true Christians down through the ages because they didn't agree with the pope. Now the pope says that it's God's will that there be different religions.

I used to think that the opening of the first seal might have begun with John Paul I, with the Vatican Council. But I don't believe that anymore. I think that all of these moves are bringing together for a one-world religion. Then when they have a pope who performs miracles, they're all going to come together. That will be the final thing.

There's already a lot, and we've seen some of it. I might get some more material on it. There's already a lot of work going on with bringing all the religions together. It's going to happen because they're knocking down Protestantism and the Churches of God. That's what happened, the Church went through it.

Revelation 6:1: "And I looked when the Lamb opened one of the seals; and I heard one of the four living creatures say, like the sound of thunder, 'Come and see.' And I looked, and behold, there was a white horse; and the one who was sitting on it had a bow…" (vs 1-2)—notice there are no arrows!

Can you win a war without arrows? Yes, if you agree with one another!

"…and a crown was given to him; and he went out conquering, and to conquer" (v 2).

That's what's been going on, but the one-world religion will not take place until this: Revelation 13:11: "And I saw another beast rising out of the earth; and he had two horns like a lamb, but spoke like a dragon." Perfect description of the Catholic Church! Two horns:

  • What are the Catholics and the Muslims trying to do? Come together on an equal basis!
  • Could one be the horn of the pope?
  • Could one be the horn of Islam?

Could be, the pope will come out on top, because he's the chief leader of the religions of the world!

Verse 12: "And he exercises all the authority of the first beast before him; and he causes the earth and those who dwell therein to worship the first beast, whose deadly wound was healed." That's the amalgamation of all religions into one! Notice what happens:

Verse 13: "And he performs great wonders…" They will surely say:

This is the hand of God! We all need to come together! It's God's will for all the different religions. Now let's all get together and be nice and good, and bring peace on the earth.

As soon as they do that, they have trouble, so here's what they do:

"…so that he even causes fire to come down to the earth from heaven in the sight of men" (v 13). Remember, Satan can do that! All you have to do is go back to the book of Job and see that that's what happened to Job and his sons. Fire came from heaven and all Job had was gone!

Verse 14: "And he deceives those who dwell on the earth… [now the big deception comes in] …by means of the wonders that were given to him to perform in the sight of the beast, saying to those who dwell on the earth that they should make an image for the beast, which had the wound by the sword, yet, was alive. And he was given power to give life to the image of the beast, so that the image of the beast also could speak; and he causes everyone who will not worship the image of the beast to be killed" (vs 14-15). That's the final solution! After that comes the mark of the beast!

There's a picture of the pope and the imam kissing. Isn't that lovely? Let's have peace. I think that all the sanctimonious, do-gooding demons are involved in bringing this about, because they are bringing a benefit to people. Isn't that Satan's way, at first? You bring a benefit!

  • POPE FRANCIS ISSUES THE ORDER CREATING GLOBAL CHRISLAM COMMITTEE TO IMPLEMENT HIS DECREE ON 'HUMAN FRATERNITY FOR WORLD PEACE' SIGNED IN UAE BACK IN FEBRUARY

{https://www.nowtheendbegins.com/chrislam-pope-francis-issues-order-create-global-committee-implement-decree-human-fraternity-world-peace-signed-united-arab-emirates-february/}

In a statement on Monday, Aug. 26, Vatican spokesman Matteo Bruni said that Pope Francis "encourages the efforts of the Committee to spread knowledge of the Document; he thanks the United Arab Emirates for the concrete commitment shown on behalf of human fraternity and he expresses the hope that similar initiatives can spring up throughout the world."

CONTROVERSIAL DOCUMENT
The Abu Dhabi document drew controversy for stating that a "pluralism and diversity" of religions is "willed by God."

Pope Francis, Grand Imam of Al Azhar sign 'Human Fraternity' Document'

This is how the covenant of Chrislam was signed back in February of 2019, now in August orders have been issued to implement that covenant.

Bring it out to the world! Here it is, multi-faith!

  • How low can human nature sink?
  • Anybody want to venture?
  • How low can it sink and be embraced in law?
    • Newsweek: Time to Rethink Taboo on Cannibalism? By Thomas D. Williams PhD, Aug. 2019 {https://www.breitbart.com/the-media/2019/08/22/newsweek-time-to-rethink-taboo-on-cannibalism/}

Since cannibalism is found throughout the animal kingdom…

Here's a good example of logic, which all logic is not truth, but all Truth is logical! Notice how this starts out: Since… already a fact!

…and therefore is something natural, perhaps it is time for humans to rethink the "ultimate taboo" against eating human flesh, Newsweek proposes in an article Wednesday.

Yes, you can go to your McDonalds and get the round rump hamburger!

There is nothing necessarily unethical or unreasonable about eating human flesh…

See how this goes?

…declare psychologists Jared Piazza and Neil McLatchie of Lancaster University, but careful reasoning over the merits of cannibalism is often "overridden by our feelings of repulsion and disgust."

While not going so far as to recommend cannibalism, saying "there is no need to overcome our repulsion for the foreseeable future"…

To kill people and eat them so AOC's climate change will be enacted. She hasn't said that, yet, but that's the ultimate thing! Here's the justification:

…"Survivors of the famous 1972 Andes plane crash waited until near starvation before succumbing to reason and eating those who had already died," they propose.

What's going to happen is that you're going to take in every toxin that this dead person had, plus the curse that would come with it! That's how low it sunk.

How far will human beings go? Jer. 17—a lot of do-gooders don't believe this, they think they're good because they bring benefits, but they're working for Satan the devil, and they are bringing sin.

When mad-cow disease came out—it first came out in Britain—what happened? They were feeding animal products to cows! It backfired, because of all the toxins! Cows are not to eat meat! God didn't make it that way. So, mad-cow disease came out and some people got mad-cow disease by eating the flesh of the cattle.

What's going to happen if this idiot who is killed now becomes cannibal flesh, but he's got every disease under the sun and maybe even idiotic genes in him. How about let's have scrambled eggs with brains. How does that sound? Where will it go? Let's look at the contrast:

Jeremiah 17:5: Thus says the LORD, 'Cursed is the man who trusts in man, and makes flesh his arm, and whose heart departs from the LORD.'" That's going the way of the world and of Satan the devil!

Verse 6: "For he shall be like a shrub in the desert, and shall not see when good comes. But he shall inhabit the parched places in the wilderness, in a salt land that is not inhabited. Blessed is the man who trusts in the LORD and whose hope is the LORD" (vs 6-7).

'Trust in the Lord with all your heart and lean not to your own understanding' (Prov. 3).

Verse 8: "For he shall be like a tree planted by the waters; it sends out its roots by the river… [tie in Psa. 1] …and it shall not fear when the heat comes, but its foliage shall be green; and he is not worried in the year of drought, nor will it cease from yielding fruit. The heart is deceitful above all things, and desperately wicked; who can know it?" (vs 8-9).

The only way you know truly what human nature is, is with the Word of God! It's awfully hard for everyone to admit that there is none good, no, not one and goodness only comes from God.

Verse 10: "I the LORD search the heart, I try the reins, even to give to each man according to his ways, according to the fruit of his doings."

That's talking about every human being on earth—period! Couldn't be otherwise.

How are we coming with where the world is going? There may possibly be a slight hope for some improvement for a while, but it's not going to get any better after that, if that even comes.

  • Does Jesus know all human hearts?
  • Did Jesus create all human beings? Yes, through pro-creation!
  • Has He judged all nations from the beginning until now?
  • Has He judged every person on earth their whole life? Yes, He has!

Mark 7:21: "For from within, out of the hearts of men go forth evil thoughts…" Doesn't that tell you about what we see on television? Yes, indeed!

"…adulteries, fornications, murders" (v 21). What's the biggest problem of human beings? Sex!

Verse 22: "Thefts, covetousness, wickednesses, guile, licentiousness, an evil eye, blasphemy, pride, foolishness; all these evils go forth from within, and these defile a man" (vs 22-23).

How bad will it get? I don't think we've seen anything, yet! But we need to be spiritually prepared, mentally prepared, and even in most cases have some physical preparations, as well. What are you going to do when it gets like Venezuela? Which it probably will!

One last thought on the captivity of America:

  • Who owns naval bases in Panama?
  • Who owns a naval base in Venezuela?
  • Who wants to own—which was just destroyed—a naval base in the Bahamas, 50 miles from America?

Our #1 enemy: China!

Just think about how they could bring in large boats. They have lots of ships, and they could take Americans captive. Everything is right there!

I hope you don't get upset over this sermon, but I'm just talking about some of the things that is the way it is in the world! With that, have hope, because we're going to take over the world under Christ and change it!
