We're going to talk about some things today, financially and what's going to happen in the world, so what I'm going to do, because we'll doing a lot of different thinking and talking back and forth, so I want you to know that none of this is dogma, but some of it may be really true. But it gives us a framework to think on, so I'm going to ring my bell once to start with—the bell has been duly wrung.

It's awfully difficult to see how the economy's going to come around. It's awfully difficult to see how the war in Afghanistan is going to work, especially after what has happened. But let me ask you a question: Do you know why we're in Afghanistan? Anybody venture a guess on that? ['poppies' from audience] The heroin, yes, they want to control the heroin, by all means. Minerals, that's the key! They have known for years that there is iron, copper, gold, silver, and especially lithium in great quantities. Now what do you need for rechargeable batteries for high-bred cars? Lithium!

The problem is Afghanistan is in about the fifteenth or sixteenth century. They've been able to tame Iraq, because the whole scheme of a global government is going to hinge upon taming the Muslim countries. So you look at the ones that have been tamed down: Turkey, Morocco, Algeria, Libya, Kuwait, Iraq, Saudi Arabia, United Arab Emirates. So who do they have yet to tame? Afghanistan, Pakistan and Iran. And then they'll take care of Somalia later.

They must have the army there to do it and they must protect the elite. Now when I talk about the elite, if you haven't gone online and looked up Dr. John Coleman in Carson City, Utah, you go online and look him up. You download his information on the Committee of 300 [book title: The Conspirators Hierarchy: Committee of 300]. People rotate in and out of the Committee of Three Hundred, but that includes the leaders in financing, many of them, the leaders in banking, the leaders in government, the leaders in industry, and this is what people call the 'shadow government' behind all governments. You've heard that expression before, haven't you? The shadow government! I think it's quite evident that no government is really run by the people that are elected to run it, except as it agrees with the overall agenda of the world's elite.

Now everyone is saying that China is a great power. Not yet! But let's go to Revelation 9, and let's put our thinking caps on. Let's think about what it will take to equip, from the east, an army of 200-million. While we're thinking on that, let's understand that during WWII they had 50-million men under arms. That was considered a world war. So this is four times larger, 200-million.

Revelation 9:13: "And the sixth angel sounded his trumpet; and I heard a voice from the four horns of the golden altar that is before God; and it said to the sixth angel, who had the trumpet, 'Loose the four angels who are bound in the great river Euphrates.' Then the four angels, who had been prepared for the hour and day and month and year... [A specific time] ...were loosed, so that they might kill a third of men; and the number of the armies of the horsemen..." (vs 13-17). Now notice it is armies, multiple. I want you to think how long it takes to move an army. I want you to think about how long it takes to prepare for an army. We need to think about the economics behind that, and the economics in the countries that's required to do this. They're not going to come with sticks and stones. They're going to come with sophisticated weapons.

"...was two hundred thousand thousand [200-million]; and I heard the number of them. And so I saw the horses in the vision, and those sitting on them, who had fiery breastplates, even like jacinth and brimstone. And the heads of the horses were like heads of lions, and fire and smoke and brimstone shoot out of their mouths.... [That is a description, not of a horse, but of a weapon. We're getting closer to the time of these weapons. We have many of them right now that do that.] ...By these three, a third of men were killed: by the fire and the smoke and the brimstone that shoot out of their mouths. For their power is in their mouths; for their tails are like serpents, and have heads, and with them they inflict wounds" (vs 16-19).

Now that's an awesome army. That is also described back in Joel 2 in very similar terms. We won't go back there right now, because we want to concentrate on what we're talking about here. So I want you to think about what happened in WWII. What did it take to mobilize the United States of America to fight WWII? Well, they had the draft, what, 12-million men? They had to have all the factories converted to making tanks, jeeps, trucks, planes, ships. Right down in Vallejo, just from us, they had shipyards where Kaiser was turning out these liberty ships. He got so he could turn out, in all of the shipyards he had, he turned out like three or four everyday. They had a race between them, who could put together a liberty ship the fastest. It went from nearly three months down to forty-five days, from start to finish. And they produced these, mass production to carry troops, to carry cargo, to carry ammunition, to carry out the war in the Pacific and in the Atlantic. Now to have an army of 200-million we have to have a huge population. The only area on earth where you have that population is the Far East. That's why it talks about loosing the River Euphrates, so they could come.

Now how are they going to come? I want you to think about that for a minute. What has to be done? Are they going to climb over tops of mountains? or Does there have to be roads built? Roads have to be built and there has to be almost like a super freeway through the Khyber Pass. The Khyber Pass comes up on the westernmost part of China and matches up with Afghanistan and Pakistan and India right there.

This is why I think there's a whole lot more time than we've expected. That's why we're there in Afghanistan, because those minerals must be exploited. The super-elite want to make money on it in the next round of massive economic activity. We'll talk about economic activity here in just a little bit.

Now how many have heard of the world's greatest dam in China on the Yangtze? That is due to be open 2012. A lot of people said, 'Well, how are they going to solve the problem of all of the debris coming down the Yangtze River? Well, they're going to have some tunnels that go on either side of it so that they can siphon off the debris and send it downstream and not fill up behind the dam. This will be the biggest dam in the world. They're going to have super hydro-generators and it's going to give cheap power to China.

Years ago a Chinese engineer flying over America, said, 'When you fly over America at night and you look down you see lights everywhere. When you fly over China, it's dark. And we are going to make it so there will be lights everywhere.' Now let's understand, as big as China is in its power, it's only starting, because still yet two-thirds of its population are living as peasants. When they come into the big cities like Beijing and Shanghai, and whatever other big cities are there—what do they see? They see a western world with Chinese signs! Almost everything in China and in the gulf states [Middle East] was designed and supervised by westerners, though the Chinese and the Arabs provided the labor. So it's kind of deceptive for them to look and see that and see, 'Oh, look what we have done.' They did do it. Granted, they had to hire the people to do it. And who's money did they use to do it? Our money!

Now let's talk a little bit about India. India has a big national project on the drawing-boards, that is to have a system of irrigation canals running all across India. They get a lot of typhoon rain, plus the Himalayas with all the water coming off the Himalayas gushing down the Ganges River. They're going to have that and they're going to harness it. They're going to use it to grow food. They are going to use it for industry. So we have not yet seen the rise of the countries in the east to the point that they have the capacity to produce an army of 200-million with all the sophisticated weapons that are indicated here in Rev. 9. So that has yet to be done. And I think the key is Afghanistan and the minerals.

Now let me tell you what I mentioned to my wife when I heard that Gen. McChrystal was going to be fired. I told her, I said, 'If Gen. Petraeus is selected, the super-elite want the minerals.' What a perfect place for minerals. You can ship east to China. You can ship east and south to Pakistan and India, and one of the keys that they learned with the Arabs and the Jordanians and the Kuwaitis and the Iraqis and the Turks is this. If they exploit the minerals that are there and the population has work, this is going to cut down on the radicalism. So that's the way that they're going to tame them. They have to be tamed.

There will be coming a world government. Right now, as we are here with this Bible study, in Toronto, Canada, there's the G-20 meeting. Now how many know what the G-20 is? That is the twenty leading central banks in the world! Isn't it interesting that in 2008, when the United States economy nearly collapsed because of the pulling out of money out of the stock market, nobody asked the questions:

  • Who was drawing it out?
  • Where was it going?
  • Why did they do it?

What was the first thing that President Bush announced? They had the plan in place when that event occurred. What was the first thing that he announced? Anybody remember? He said, 'Well, we're going to get the leading central banks of the world together, G-20, the group of twenty, and we are going to work out regulations with all the banks in the world so that we cannot have this kind of thing happen again.' Isn't that what you hear? Isn't that what President Obama said just today? 'We must sign this financial bill.' And it's the same one for all of the central banks in the world. Now why are they going to do that? What is the purpose behind it? Well, it's obvious you cannot continue to have the ups and downs, like we've had in the financial markets.

Let's take another view. Let's look at Europe. And how many times have we said in prophesy, Europe is going to be the power base for the king of the north, which it probably will. But there are gigantic problems they need to solve. What are they? What's the number one problem they need to solve? What do you do with the Muslim population! On Church at Home I mentioned that England is probably going to come under Muslim domination with Sharia Law. It wouldn't take much to do it; they've already okayed Sharia courts. Remember, the way the Muslims invade, when they don't use weapons, they do it by incrementalism and by riots and by demanding. We're going to see some prophecies of that here in a little bit. What is Europe going to do with all the Muslims there? Look what's happened to Europe. Everyone thought, 'Oh, the Euros going to be wonderful. That's going to be fine.' Well, it's lost twenty-five percent of its value almost in the last two months.

In relationship to that, what caused that? Debt! Why do we have the system of banking that you create debt in order to have wealth? True wealth is the absence of debt—wouldn't you say? Yes, indeed! Now, we'll talk about that a little bit later. Why are all nations in the world hovering on the brink of financial collapse? And let's think about it concerning the U.S. What would happen if we collapsed? 'Oh, that'll never happen.' Are we like those banks, too big to fail? These are some very important things that are going to affect us day-by-day, week-by-week, month-by-month, and year-by-year. We will see how those things will work out.

Let's talk a little bit about the condition of the children of Israel today, the modern descendants of Jacob, the twelve tribes of Israel. Let's come to Isaiah 1; God speaks of this and talks about the things that are there. We will see that it also includes the financial problems that we are talking about. Now I want to state a principle that I've stated many times before, but I'm going to state it again here, which is this: You cannot solve spiritual problems by political means, but you can solve political problems by spiritual means.

Now how is that? You cannot expect to elect hypocritical, two-faced politicians—regardless of what they tell you, and regardless of how good you may think they are—to put them into office, to expect them to stop the corruption when they themselves are corrupt, when they themselves are bought and paid for by the super-elite. That tells you why no one can reform Washington, D. C.—I call it Washington, D.L.C., District of Liars and Corruption. No one can solve the problems of London. Those two financial centers go down and the whole world goes down, please understand that.

But when you look and see what we are, now granted in the mix there's some good, sincere people trying to do what is right. There are some politicians who think that they're doing things that are right. They're saying, 'Well, let's get back to the Constitution.' Let's see, but they seem to forget, that the way the courts have twisted and turned the Constitution, that's how we ended up where we are today. So in reality, if everybody could get back to the Constitution, what would happen if there were another 200 years? We'd be in the same place we are today, because human nature doesn't change. History repeats itself over and over again. Granted there are some people out there trying to do what is right. Yet they really don't know what is right, because they are not willing to repent and come to God. Or if they come to God, it's like in Psa. 58, they flattered God when God killed them. Oh, they flattered God and they repented, but not from the heart. So this time around, it's going to take much more, much more than people figure, much more than people want to try and think about what has to be done, because we are looking square in the face of the fulfillment of prophecy and God's judgment upon us. There's no way around it.

'Oh, but a God of love wouldn't do that!' God is more than love, God is Sovereign, God is powerful—God's commands are to be kept. You show me one place in the Bible where anyone ever went against the commands or will of God and God blessed them; but that's what they want. Some people get absolutely furious at me when I say, 'All Sunday keeping preachers are liars.' 'Oh, but they're good men.' Let's take the patriarch of Protestantism today—who is in his waning days and facing death very soon—Billy Graham. When asked by those who knew about the Sabbath, he said, 'Why don't you preach the Sabbath?' He says, 'I preach what I am allowed to preach. And I will get more people to Christ with what I can preach.' So he's a liar, but he's a wonderful man, counselor of presidents, yes, indeed. But still, he knows better, but what will he do about it? Likewise, with all the commandments of God.

God is looking down at the world; God is looking down at this nation. And isn't it interesting before we get into this here in just a minute, what was Jacob's #1 sin? What was his number one sin? Deceitful, yes!and his mommy—right? They could have waited for God to give the inheritance—correct? But they had to scheme, so he had his come-upins first with Laban. He ended up with two wives and two concubines. Worked for him twenty years, for thinking that he could go against God and receive the blessing, which he was going to get anyway. I want you to think about the modern descendants today of Jacob, whose name was changed to Israel, and what is their #1 sin? The same thing, deceit! Our whole society demands truth, but it always must make room for deceit and lies. You see that in religion, you see that in politics, you see that in economics. And what does it lead to? The degenerate society that we see today—correct? Yes, indeed!

So let's read what God says here. This is not only of the twelve tribes at that time, but also a prophecy for today. Isaiah 1:2: 'Hear, O heavens, and give ear, O earth..." God uses the heavens and earth as a witness for Him. 'You don't believe I created it, you don't believe I made it? All right, I'm going to use that a witness against you. And what did Jesus say concerning the heaven and the earth? He said, 'Do not think I have come to abolish the law. I did not come to abolish, but to fulfill and until heaven and earth pass away, one jot or one tittle shall in no way pass from the law.'

Now we're still here in Isa. 1. This is just kind of background leading to it. That's what Jesus said. So here the one Who became Jesus Christ says the same thing. "Hear, O heavens, and give ear, O earth; for the LORD has spoken, 'I have reared and brought up children, but they have rebelled against Me'" (v 2).

One of the conundrums that people don't understand is this: the promises that God gave to Abraham through Isaac were irrevocable. God was going to give the inheritance, not because of the descendants, but because of Abraham and his faith, and Isaac and his faith. And the conundrum is the children of Israel always end up being rebellious against God, and whenever God gives them blessings to the fullest they end up being like harlots (Ezek. 16 & 23).

So he says you're worse than the animals: "'The ox knows his owner, and the donkey his master's crib; but Israel does not know Me; My people do not understand'" (v 3). Isn't that exactly what has happened? 'What's going on, why is this happening?' I'm sure there's some Sunday-keeping ministers someplace trying to make sense of this and they may give some fairly good understand for the people. But I don't hear any massive call of repentance, do you? Maybe there's one or two someplace doing it. Let's see what God says.

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.... [So God says, 'Have you had enough? When are you ever going to quit? I exist, My laws exist. You're suffering from your own behavior.'] ...Why should you be stricken any more?" (vs 4-5). Look at all the things that are striking us right now today, financial problems down to the very least—correct? Health problems down to the very least—correct? Yes! Massive disasters on the horizon, massive disasters have already happened. Do we need any more 9/11s? Where's it going to go? Like I said, I'm not going to be bringing you good news. The immediate news is desperate and it's going to get worse. The great news beyond that is Christ is going to return. Everyone says, 'Oh, I want to live during the days when Christ returns.' Really? Have you read all the prophecies? You read all the things that are going on. It's not like a church picnic. It's not like a scout's outing in the woods. Take a look at what happened during the Iraq War, that's more what it's going to be like.

So He says: "You will revolt more and more; the whole head is sick, and the whole heart faint. From the sole of the foot even to the top of the head there is no soundness in it; only wounds and bruises and putrefying sores; they have not been closed, nor bound up, nor soothed with ointment. Your country is desolation, your cities are burned with fire…." (vs 5-7). I wonder what's going to happen down at the Gulf when all that oil hits the beach?

We got an email from the lady who does a very good job in doing all of our transcripts. She lives down in Alabama, close to Gulf Shores. So she decided to take a break and go eat her lunch down near the beach. She sat there with the windows down and the breeze was coming in, and she could smell the oil coming in. She could taste it on her lips. Now what's going to happen when it gushes up and floods the whole beach? No one knows what the contaminants are going to be. No one knows how it's going to turn out. They've even said of the attempt to get all the oil and get the oil up through pipes so they can use it instead of spewing out into the gulf, they said they don't know if they can get there in time with those drilling things that they're doing, maybe sometime in August. But some have thought and speculated, 'Well, if the hole gets any bigger and it blows even more, then all of a sudden with the pressure of water a mile deep, it goes down into the well and then the heat from below creates it into steam, and it blows up and creates great tsunami waves.

So we're sitting teetering, teetering,teetering! And we have a President who is dithering, dithering,dithering! And we have people who are mentally oppressed by thinking on these things and the job situation and all of these troubles mounting up—employment, work, sickness, disease, and a government that is virtually paralyzed. Some few try it. Look at the governor of Louisiana. Every time he tries to do something, he gets struck down by the federal government. Look at the governor of Arizona. We're being invaded by a foreign army!

To be "…stricken any more (v 5)…. there is no soundness in it (v 6)…. Strangers devour your land right in your very presence..." (v 7). Not only the land, but the businesses. You'd be surprised who owns the corporations now. They don't want the worthless American dollars, so they come back in and buy things—property, businesses, buildings, companies, so they can have something tangible. Verse 8: "And the daughter of Zion is left as a booth in a vineyard, like a hut in a garden of cucumbers, like a besieged city…. [I tell you, Arizona feels like it's besieged—doesn't it? Yes!] …Except the LORD of hosts had left us a very small remnant... [That is the Church of God and it can include a small remnant of the physical children of Israel.] ...we would have been as Sodom; we would have become like Gomorrah" (vs 8-9).

Now let's talk about that for a minute, because the people in the surrounding cities obviously thought they were good people. But what happened? They tolerated all of these perverted sexual behaviors and, hey, I don't think that same-sex marriage is new—do you? Probably rampant in Sodom and Gomorrah! 'Oh, but it's nice, let people have their freedom.' And when fire and brimstone came down because God couldn't find ten righteous people, not even ten, ended up only three escaped, Lot and his two daughters.

"Hear the Word of the LORD, rulers of Sodom... [Okay, Congress, Barney Frank, and all the rest of your ilk.] ...give ear to the law of our God, people of Gomorrah.... [Stop all of your religious nonsense that you have and listen to God for a change.] ...'To what purpose is the multitude of your sacrifices to Me?' says the LORD; 'I am full of the burnt offerings of rams, and the fat of fed beasts; and I do not delight in the blood of bulls, or of lambs, or of he-goats'" (vs 10-11). That was with their system there. And you read what they did to the temple, you read Jer. 7, how they were offering offerings to other gods and incense to other gods right at the temple of God and they had homosexual booths all around. And the women weaved all the hangings. 'Oh, a good community project.'

"'When you come to appear before Me, who has required this at your hand, to trample My courts? Bring no more vain sacrifices... [We can say today, 'Bring no more vain worship to Me.'] ...incense is an abomination to Me—new moon and Sabbath, the calling of assemblies... [We'll see that can refer to the true Sabbath, pollute it, made for their own use as did the scribes and Pharisees.] ...I cannot endure iniquity along with the solemn assembly! Your new moons... [they changed them] ...and your appointed feasts..." (vs 12-14). Yes, Halloween today, Christmas, Easter, New Years, all of those lying feasts. They never stop to think for a minute:

  • Can you worship the God of truth with lies?
  • Where are we as a nation?
  • What are we going to do?
  • How are we going to bear this?

He says: "'...My soul hates; they are a trouble to Me; I am weary to bear them'" (vs 12-14). Remember, every Christmas what do they say, 'Oh, let's work hard and put Christ back in Christmas.' God's answer is He was never there. Oh, but people get persecuted if they want to stop keeping Christmas. 'Boy, you've gone nuts!'

Verse 15: "'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.'" One of the most important places they could start is with all the women who've had abortions and all the men who fostered that kind of thing. You repent truly to God; that's a place to start. If you look at the emblem for Planned Parenthood, their symbol, it's a broken womb. Killing 60-million of the most innocent and we say we're clean, we say we're God's people, we say we're an exceptional people? Listen, I'm here to tell you God's judgment's coming.

"'Wash yourselves, make yourselves clean; put away the evil of your doings from before My eyes; cease to do evil. Learn to do good...'" (vs 16-17). How do you do that? How about opening your Bible for a change. Like one man confronted his priest, concerning the removal of the second commandments out of the catechism and why it was still in the official Catholic Bible with the pope's imperator and approval on it. He went to the priest and said, 'Why is it this way? Why do we have these idols in our church?' The priest said, 'We don't used the Bible.' But everybody thinks they do.

  • You have to learn to do good.
  • You have to seek judgment.

That's hard for the judges—right? That's hard for the congressman, the state legislators. "'...reprove the oppressor. Judge the orphan, plead for the widow. Come now, and let us reason together... [God is willing, if there's repentance, but no one comes to God on their terms. Everybody comes to God on His terms.] ...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 you are willing and obedient... [I've heard Glenn Beck say there needs to be a spiritual revival in America. True! Not back to the Protestantism of old, but back to the Bible according to Isa. 1, which means you have to be willing and obedient.] (If you are): ...you shall eat the good of the land. But if you refuse and rebel... [Here's a promise. Remember, half of God's promises are correction and curses.] ...But if you refuse and rebel, you shall be devoured with the sword;' for the mouth of the LORD has spoken it" (vs 17-20).

Did not that happen to the northern ten tribes, were they not carried off into captivity? And now God brought us into the fulfillment of the promise of the land that he was going to give to Abraham—America. 'We show it's the greatest country in the world because we're such good people.' No, it's because of the promises of Abraham!And yes, we did include God in our Constitution when we started, but now you deny Him in everything that you do and even in your places of worship.

Verse 21: "How has the faithful city become a harlot? It was full of judgment; righteousness lodged in it—but now murderers. Your silver has become dross, your wine mixed with water... [We'll talk about the financial thing here in a little bit.] ...Your rulers are rebellious, and companions of thieves... [called lobbyists today] ...everyone loves a bribe... [It's called a donation to a political campaign. It is called the promise of work with high pay.] ...and is pursuing rewards; they do not judge the orphan, nor does the cause of the widow come before them. And the Lord, the LORD of Hosts, the Mighty One of Israel says, 'Alas!.…" (vs 21-24). There comes a time when God says, 'Enough is enough!'

  • Have we reached that point yet?
  • Is there a place to turn back?
  • Is there time to turn back enough?
  • Will there be enough repentance to hold back God's hand?

"Alas! I Myself will vent My wrath upon My foes, and avenge Myself of My enemies. And I will turn back My hand upon you, and purge away your dross as with lye, and take away all your tin alloy'" (vs 24-25). So it's going to come. Later it goes into the Millennium. It's just going to happen before the Millennium.

(go to next track)

Now let's come to Deuteronomy 28. Everyone likes to read the blessings. Everyone wants the good. We're going to read some of them, but let's see that these are the 'if' clauses. Then we'll look at some of the curses and see where we are today. Deuteronomy 28:1: "And it shall come to pass, if you shall hearken diligently unto the voice of the LORD your 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." Did that happen? Yes, absolutely! And because they had the Word of God, plus the promise to Abraham.

"And all these blessings shall come upon you and overtake you if you will obey the voice of the LORD your God" (v 2). Now notice how many times it says to 'obey the voice of the Lord your God.' Isn't that an interesting thing? That's the most important thing! Now, what do we have recorded in the Bible? The words of God:

  • from God to Moses
  • from God to the prophets
  • from God to the Psalmists
  • inspiration from God to the apostles

Those are the words of God. It's His voice. And here's what everyone wants. As we go through and read these blessings, I want you to think about your city or your town, or if you live in the country, your country, about your family, etc.

"Blessed shall you be in the city, and blessed shall you be in the field. Blessed shall be the fruit of your body, and the fruit of your ground, and the fruit of your livestock, the increase of your cattle, and the flocks of your sheep. Blessed shall be your basket and your store" (vs 3-5). Now all of these things we have had—haven't we? Yes, indeed! In abundance, all came from God. We didn't do it ourselves. God is the One Who created it and made this country and gave it to us.

"Blessed shall you be when you come in, and blessed shall you be when you go out.... [Well you know that can't be true today. All you have to do is watch the advertisements for the security companies to protect your home because of thieves and robbers and murderers trying to break in.] ...The LORD shall cause your enemies that rise up against you to be stricken before your face.... [That'd be a good solution for the war in Afghanistan—wouldn't it? Let God handle them.] ...They shall come out against you one way, and flee before you seven ways" (vs 6-7). What's happening now in Afghanistan? Oh, they have to stand guard over the heroin poppy crop and not fire a shot. If they fire a shot, they get a medal for restraint. How's that for feminizing an army?

"The LORD shall command the blessing upon you in your storehouses, and all that you set your hand to. And He shall bless you in the land which the LORD your God gives you.... [We got here because God sent us here.] ...The LORD shall establish you a holy people to Himself, as He has sworn to you, if you shall keep the commandments of the LORD your God and walk in His ways. And all the people of the earth shall see that you are called by the name of the LORD, and they shall be afraid of you'" (vs 8-10).

Like one ambassador in talking about how America is so much different than any other nation, this is years ago before today. Everyone wants the blessings of God, but they want to do whatever they want and reject God and want no consequences. This is a testimony here for good and for evil. So the ambassador explained why America was so exceptional. He says, 'Because you have God. He is the One Who put you here.' Now let's understand, if He put us here, He can take us out.

"And the LORD shall make you abound in goods... [Are we abounding in goods?] ...in the fruit of your body, and in the fruit of your livestock, and in the fruit of your ground, in the land which the LORD swore to your fathers to give you.... [It's not because they're righteous. This is conditional 'if.'] ...The LORD shall open to you His good treasure, the heaven to give the rain to your land in its season, and to bless all the work of your hand. And you shall loan to many nations, and you shall not borrow'" (vs 11-12).

  • Did we do that? Yes, indeed!
  • When was the tipping point from a debtor to a creditor nation?
  • What year was the tipping point?

Didn't come in 1913, that's not correct.

  • What year was the tipping point?

This will shock a lot of people who think, well, Ronald Reagan, he was the champion of conservative values. It was 1982, when the tipping point changed and we started becoming a creditor nation.

  • And why was that?

Not because of Ronald Reagan alone, but because he had a communist, I mean democrat, congress who did not cut the things that needed to be cut. I think they should rename their party for what it really is, so everyone understands that.

"And the LORD shall make you the head, and not the tail.... [What have we called ourselves? The leading nation in the world! 'Where would the world be without America today?' True statement. Yes, indeed!] ...And you shall be always above, and you shall not be beneath, if... [notice the condition]: ...you obey the commandments of the LORD your God which I command you today, to observe and to do them" (v 13).

Now why should the Protestant world be surprised that they have kicked God out of the government. 'Oh, we haven't done that.' Yes, you have. Kicked God out of the schools. 'Oh, no, it's the judges.' No, it's not, it's youand the Catholics. Why? Because you say you don't have to read the Old Testament.Because you say the laws have been done away. You are responsible. And the politicians are so corrupt, they will change whichever way the wind blows. It's like putting up a windsock. Phewt! today. Phewt! tomorrow. Phewt! the next day. Phewt! the day after. 'IF' Well, you see if you don't read the Old Testament, you don't know the commandments of God. You don't know where you came from, you don't know who you are. And how many times have we heard, 'we need to understand who we are.' That's what Glenn Beck has been saying for the last two years. But even he does not understand that we are the descendants of the ten tribes of Israel today.

Verse 14: "And you shall not go aside from any of the words... [That's pretty all inclusive—isn't it?] ...which I command you today, to the right hand or the left, to go after gods to serve them." Now you can do it right in the midst of what you call 'Christian' very simply: by changing the law and retaining the title 'Christian,' but you're not; because the New Testament warns of another Jesus and false apostles. Jesus warned in the Sermon on the Mount. What did He say? 'Many shall come in My name saying I am the Christ and deceive many.'

No one likes to read past v 14, but we're going to do it today. We're going to see some of the things that go on. I want you to read all of it, because this is heavy reading. If you feel a little depressed now, well then when you feel a little more able to handle it, go back and read it. But I'll read some of it today.

Verse 15: "And it shall come to pass, if you will not hearken to the voice of the LORD your God to observe and to do all His commandments and His statutes which I command you today, all these curses shall come upon you and overtake you." Now I want to stop right here and I want to look right into the camera and I want every Protestant out there to look into the camera and to understand the law is not a curse, sin is the curse! And you do not have a clue as what Galatians really means. And you rely on a faulty translation in the King James to eliminate the laws of God and make the Apostle Paul the lawless one. And you follow in his steps, and you are at the head of leading this curse, because this is trickle-down religion and morals to all the people. And when you say there is no law and when you say the righteous God, the Lawgiver, has abolished His laws, you are liars! 'Oh, but he's such a sweet man.' He's still a liar. 'Oh, he's so dedicated to what he's doing.' He's still a liar!

"Cursed shall you be in the city, and cursed shall you be in the field. Cursed shall be your basket and your store.... [Why do we have such obesity and why do we have such things as diabetes, cancer, and all of these things? It lies right at the doorstep of the scientists who have engineered and changed the food that people buy and assume is fit to eat. We're cursed. You go into the grocery store and you fill up your cart and you come out, look at it. What do you have? Cursed food, all packaged nicely. If they did just one little thing, one little, little thing, eliminate high fructose corn syrup from all food and all beverage. That would help a great deal. 'Oh, but we wouldn't make profits if we did that.' Then, change the price and what you do.] ...Cursed shall be the fruit of your body... [Need we say any more? Every way! That doesn't mean with sickness and disease, that means in the way that they live their lives and their lifestyle.] ...and the fruit of your land, the increase of your livestock, and the flocks of your sheep. Cursed shall you be when you come in, and cursed shall you be when you go out. The LORD shall send on your cursing, vexation, and rebuke in all that you set your hand to do until you are destroyed, and until you perish quickly because of the wickedness of your doings by which you have forsaken Me'" (vs 16-20). Jesus said, 'If you love Me, keep My commandments.' And Jesus was the One Who gave these words when He was the Lord God of the Old Testament.

Then He talks about all the sickness, pestilence (v 21). Verse 22: "The LORD shall strike you with lung disease and with a fever, 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."

Going to have change in the weather: "And your heavens over your head shall be bronze, and the earth that is under you iron…. [Then He's going to make the dust storm. Remember the dust storm] …The LORD shall make the rain of your land powder and dust. It shall come down from the heavens upon you until you are destroyed" (vs 23-24). Didn't that almost destroy the nation during the Great Depression in the '30s? Have you ever seen how that big cloud of dust went clear across from Kansas all the way to Washington, D.C., and it was only then that Congress understood the magnitude of the problem.

Verse 25: "The LORD shall cause you to be stricken before you enemies. You shall go out one way against them, and flee seven ways before them. And you shall become abhorrent unto all the kingdoms of the earth." Are we hated by the rest of the world? Is that true? Why do they hate us? Because we've left God!

Let's come down here to v 27: "'The LORD will strike you with the boils of Egypt... [Sound like some of the skin diseases we have today?] ...and with the hemorrhoids, and with the scab, and with the itch, of which you cannot be healed. The LORD shall strike you with madness and blindness and astonishment of heart.... [Do we have insanity? Do we have Alzheimer's disease? Have you ever seen a cross section, a slice of an Alzheimer brain? Has holes in it, because of parasites, eating your brain away.] ...And you shall grope at noonday, as the blind gropes in darkness, and you shall not prosper in your ways….'" (vs 27-29). Isn't that true? Nearly everyone is in debt. Let me tell you something, if you're in debt, you're not prosperous. You're living in an illusion and the day is coming, not too far down the road, and all of it is going to be gone. Now before we get into the financial things, I've preached for 15 years. What have I said for 15 years? Get out of debt, get out of debt, get out of debt!

Verse 29: "…And you shall always be pressed down and spoiled forever, and no man shall save you." You feel oppressed? Why do we have the government we have today? Because that's God judgment against us as a people!

Let's come down here v 43: "The stranger dwelling among you shall get up above you very high... [We see that happening? Yes, indeed!] ...and you shall come down very low. He shall loan to you, and you shall not loan to him.... [We'll talk about the financial things here in a little bit.] ...He shall be the head, and you shall be the tail" (vs 43-44). It's coming, can't stop it. 'Oh, let's elect the conservatives in there. Let's have less government.' Okay, let's have less government.

Let me ask everyone who works in government, who receives benefits from the government, who has retirement from the government, if you want to contribute to helping solve the financial problems, in addition to repenting and obeying God, are you willing to cut everything by fifty percent? Cut your pension by fifty percent. Cut your benefits by fifty percent. All of you who work in the bureaucracy, are you willing to have fifty percent cut in personnel and fifty percent cut in wages? No, that'll never happen! But since you won't, and you're not willing to do that, doesn't matter who you elect in, because the day of interest is coming. I'll just give you a foretaste of what it's going to be. Right now, most of U.S. Treasury Bonds are selling with an interest rate of less than one percent and no more than three. If you buy a ten-year treasury today, you have to pay a 105% and your interest return is 3.49%—so in the first year you have a loss.

Now, because of so much debt, lack of taxes coming in, and you can't tax everybody because there's nothing left to tax. And there's so many people unemployed they have nothing to give or contribute—right? So what are the nations of the world going to say? 'You've lost your triple-A rating.' I'll give more details on this in the next sermon. Then instead of the federal government, just the federal government—not talking about any of the states—of all the money that comes in to Washington, D.C., it's going to require forty percent of all taxes to go to interest payments only, when the interest rises from near zero to six percent. And that will happen. It happened in Greece.

So the stranger—I've said this before, I'm going to say it again—and you'll hear me say it over and over again—that if all the legal and illegal aliens we have in America, that is nearly equal to all of the abortions. So every woman who goes out and has an abortion, God sends in an alien. 'Oh, God wouldn't do that.' Yes, He would! He has done it. Why do you think they are so stupefied in Washington, D.C., that they cannot even send the troops down to guard the border in Arizona?

  • God has given them the blindness.
  • God has given them to stupidity.
  • God has given them to selfishness and destruction.

They are there for that very purpose, because the people in the land will not turn back to God. Every time there's a crisis like this, if we turn back to God, He will hear, He will help. But it's probably going to end up being not a national thing, but an individual thing. So the burden rests with all of us.

Now notice what else is going to happen. Verse 43: "…you shall come down very low. 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... [All! So you read all of them and ask the question when you go through: are every one of these things happening today? And what is the answer? Yes!] ...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. And they shall be on you for a sign and for a wonder, and on your seed forever'" (vs 43-46).

Wherever the children of Israel are, when God made Himself known to us, through His Word, and the very founding of this nation, He made it be known. What was the first thing they did when the Pilgrims landed at Plymouth Rock after their torturous and terrible journey? And they were persecuted a lot of them out of England by the Church of England, because they wanted to keep the Sabbath. There were a great number of Sabbath-keepers that came over here. They had the Geneva Bible. What was the first thing they did when they stepped on the shore? They got on their knees and thanked God! Whenever things went bad, they prayed to God. Yes, they had to fight the Canaanites to get them out here, just like they did when they went into the 'promised land,' in what is called Palestine today. What was the very basis for starting the Constitution of the United States? The Word of God!

But where's God today? And even our illustrious, illegal President—who will not tell us who he is, and define his religion to us, or let any of his records be known—now gives his speeches without any American flags behind him. I wonder why? Maybe it's not because he doesn't want them there. Maybe that's true, maybe he doesn't want them there. But is that a sign from God that America is soon to be no more the way we know it? I don't know!I couldn't tell you. Saying these things doesn't mean I don't love the country. I do, because God gave it to us. But I also see the reasons why it's going down.

We all had a similar experience with this. I remember on the Day of Atonement in 1979, when I resigned from the Worldwide Church of God because of their corruption and their sins. God inspired me to say that unless there was someone standing in the pulpit in Pasadena today, saying amend your ways and repent to God, the forces will be set in motion which will destroy this Church. That's thirty years this coming Atonement. Did it happen? Yes! I was labeled as everything demonic and satanic, but did it happen? Yes, it did!

People don't like to hear the words like this. I don't like to read them, but if I don't, God is going to hold me responsible, too. So not only is this a message to people in America, this is a message to the Churches of God. Not because I'm trying to set myself up as anything great, because I'm not, and I'm nothing. Please understand that. But I cannot read the Words of God and look out and see what is going on, and come in and preach nice, fluffy, fluffy, goody, goody sermons to make you feel good and go home and continue in your misery. It's not easy. Jeremiah didn't have it easy. And I'm not trying to set myself up as a prophet, I'm just reading the Words of God. So this is God's message, it's not mine. These are God's Words, not mine.

We need to understand that. We are going to face times we have never faced before, because as you will see on the next sermon there is coming a worldwide depression that is going to set up a world government. And I can tell you exactly how they're going to do it. And this book, I want you to get this book: Aftershock: Protect Yourself and Profit in the Next Global Financial Meltdown (ISBN#: 978-0-470-48156-1). These writers in 2006 predicted the fall in 2008, and they're showing why the fall is going to happen late 2010, 2011, at the latest 2012.
