Now if you listen to the news, they are predicting the worst of everything to happen. And it may very well come out that way. And with printing and spending trillions of dollars and it really doesn't make any sense, does it? Apparently, we got in this mess because we borrowed too much money. So the way we're going to cure it is borrow four times more that amount. Doesn't make any sense. But you see, it's really not the economy that's the problem. It's the leaders and the people.

Now let me read you this about a Tennessee high school football game, and the principal makes a statement before the game.

This is the statement that was read over the PA system at the football game at Roane County High School, Kingston, Tennessee, by Principal Jody McLoud:

It has always been the custom at the Roane County High School football games, to say a prayer, and play the National Anthem to honor God and Country. Due to a recent ruling by the Supreme Court, I am told that saying a prayer is a violation of Federal Case Law. As I understand the law at this time. I can use this facility, on the other hand, to approve of sexual perversion and call it "an alternate life-style." And if someone is offended, that's OK.

I can use it to condone sexual promiscuity by dispensing condoms and calling it "safe sex." If someone is offended, that's OK.

I can even use this public facility to present the merits of killing an unborn baby as a "viable means of birth control." If someone is offended, no problem. I could designate a school day as "Earth Day" and involve students in activities to worship religiously and praise the goddess Mother Earth, and call it "ecology."

I can use literature, videos, and presentations in the classroom that depict people with strong traditional Christian convictions as "simple minded" and 'ignorant' and call it "enlightenment." However, if anyone uses this facility to honor God and to ask Him to bless this event with safety and good sportsmanship, then Federal Case Law is violated. This appears to be inconsistent, at best, and at worst diabolical. Apparently, we are to be tolerant of everything and everyone except God and His Commandments.

Nevertheless, as a school principal, I frequently ask staff and students to obey rules with which they do not necessarily agree. For me to do otherwise would be inconsistent, at best, and at worst hypocritical. I suffer from that affliction enough unintentionally. I certainly do not need to add an intentional transgression.

For this reason, I shall "render unto Caesar that which is Caesar's" and refrain from praying at this time.

However, if you feel inspired to honor, praise, and thank God, and ask Him in the name of Jesus to bless this event, feel free to do so. As far as I know, it's not against the law—yet.

One by one the people in the stands bowed their heads, held hands with one another, and began to pray. They prayed in the stands; they prayed in the team, huddles. They prayed at the concession stand and they prayed at the announcer's box!

The only place they didn't pray was in the Supreme Court of the United States of America‑‑the seat of "justice" in the 'one nation under God.'

Somehow, Kingston, Tennessee, remembered what so many have forgotten: we are given the freedom OF religion, not freedom FROM religion. Praise God that His remnant remains.

Jesus said, "If you are ashamed of me before men, then I will be ashamed of you before My Father." If you're not ashamed, pass this on. (taken from the Internet)

I just did.

The comment was made: with the lawyer Jay Sekulow in his American Center for Law and Justice to the American public, seeing he has a lot of lawsuits out to try and overturn a lot of these things, so there are some people out there trying to do what is right. You can consider those people to be the remnant of Israel in the letter of the law.

I asked you if you have followed Glenn Beck recently and I think what his 9-12 thing that he is doing reminds me of, it reminds me of an Old Testament revival under the judges. There're a lot of people out there warning, making a lot of warnings, and I think it's kind of sad and very ironic, and I want you to pray about this, too; not that other people would not do warning, they need to warn, but what is sad and ironic, is what? The Church of God has been scattered and made impotent. And the Churches of God need to repent and start giving warnings and they need to quit oppressing the people that they are serving, and begin to reach out to help heal them and then they can reach out and do something to warn the world. After all, should we not be the ones who are doing it? Yes, indeed. But God is not going to be without witnesses. Every once in awhile you can hear that maybe God used Rush Limbaugh for a witness, or maybe Sean Hannity who as a Catholic doesn't have any statues in his house which tells you he's not a Catholic like others. And maybe even Glenn Beck, maybe some others, and even—here let's go to Jeremiah 23. Let's see something that is interesting here.

What is interesting is this, is that the Word of God and the truth of God is still true and the Word of God, regardless of who speaks it. Now some people speak it out of truth and sincerity, some out of contention, but notice what God says concerning the prophets. Jeremiah 23:1, because here's what's going to be the cause: we are going to see that the seed of destruction that has now blossomed into the wild vine of corruption that Israel is today were the Protestant ministers who rejected the Sabbath and declared the commandments of God abolished. And that set up a lawless society and over the generations from the founding of this country we've had various rises and revivals and falls, various levels of corruption, and again revivals, and now we are facing the greatest corruption possible.

Notice what God says here, Jeremiah 23:1: "'Woe to the shepherds who destroy and scatter the sheep of My pasture,' says the Lord…. [These are the children of Israel.] …Therefore thus says the LORD, God of Israel, against the shepherds who feed My people, 'You have scattered My flock, and have driven them away, and have not taken care of them. Behold, I will bring upon you the evil of your doings,' says the LORD…. [That's coming. But notice v 3. There is a little encouragement here right along.] …'But I will gather the remnant of My flock out of all the countries where I have driven them, and will bring them again to their fold. And they shall be fruitful and multiply. And I will set up shepherds over them who will feed them. And they shall fear no more, nor be afraid; nor shall they lack anything,' says the LORD" (vs 1-4). So this blends right into the millennium. So we're talking about the end times here.

Let's see what Jeremiah [transcriber's correction] said, drop down to v 7. "'Therefore, behold the days come,' says the LORD, 'that they shall no more say, "The LORD lives, Who brought the children of Israel out of the land of Egypt;" But, "The LORD lives, Who brought up and led the seed of the house of Israel out of the north country, and from all countries where He had driven them." And they shall dwell in their own land'" (vs 7-8). So that's going to be the end result of it and we are here learning how to fulfill those positions as kings and priests under Christ in the millennium.

Now v. 9: "As for the prophets my heart within me is broken… [This is Jeremiah as he looks out and sees all this and what did Jeremiah live through? He lived through the corruption and decay and fall of Judah and Jerusalem. The only respite that was there was when Josiah repented and for twelve years things were in pretty good shape. So I don't know if there's going to be a respite ahead of us, because are there enough people in the children of Israel to help turn it around? Are there enough people within the Church of God who really love God and serve Him that will cause God to pull back His hand? I do not know. But this is what he saw:] …all my bones shake. I am like a drunken man, and like a man whom wine has overcome because of the LORD and because of the words of His holiness. For the land is full of adulterers. Because of swearing the land mourns; the pleasant places of the wilderness are dried up… [and then alternately flooded out] …and their course is evil, and they wield power unjustly. 'For both prophet and priest are ungodly…'" (vs 9-11).

Isn't that what has happened in the churches today? Read something about the emerging church that will stand your hair on end. That is the remnant of the corrupt Protestant churches that are going to be brought into the one-world religion, where doctrine is not important. Caring and belonging is what is important, and so what happens? They cut off everything with loving God and you care for people and do nice things and do whatever you want, and accept everyone the way that they are‑‑wonderful, hugging, kissing, diversity. But be careful you don't get HIV.

"'…yea, in My house I have found their evil,' says the LORD. 'So their way shall be to them as slippery ways in the darkness; they shall be driven on, and fall in their way; for I will bring evil on them, even the year of their judgment,' says the LORD" (vs 11-12). Is this our year of judgment at this time for us? And what did they tell them?

Let's continue on. This chapter is full of a lot of things that apply to today. Verse 13: "'And I have seen repulsive things in the prophets of Samaria; they prophesied by Baal… [that's sun worship on Sunday] …and caused My people Israel to go astray. I have also seen in the prophets of Jerusalem a horrible thing; they commit adultery and walk in lies. They also strengthen the hands of evildoers, so that none returns from his evil; they are all of them like Sodom to Me, and her inhabitants like Gomorrah'" (vs 13-14). Have you ever walked down the streets of Hollywood recently? I was there about a month ago and I've been there before, and it is like watching the occult walk by; everyone trying to get a hit, to be noticed, following perversion and weirdness, not only in their behavior but in their dress and how they look. And if you're dressed like I am, you stand out like a sore thumb, as someone from a by-gone age. Absolutely amazing! This truly fits. That's to say nothing of San Francisco.

"Therefore thus says the LORD of hosts concerning the prophets, 'Behold, I will feed them wormwood, and make them drink poisonous water; for from the prophets of Jerusalem ungodliness has gone forth into all the land.' Thus says the LORD of hosts, 'Do not listen to the words of the prophets who prophesy to you. They make you vain; they speak a vision from their own heart, not out of the mouth of the LORD. They still say to those who despise Me, "The LORD has said, 'You shall have peace!'" And they say to everyone who walks after the imagination of his own heart, "No evil shall come upon you!"'.… [you have freedom, go ahead and do it] …For who has stood in the counsel of the LORD to see and hear His Word? Who has attended to His Word and heard it? Behold, the tempest of the LORD has gone forth in fury, a whirling tempest. It shall fall grievously upon the head of the wicked. The anger of the Lord shall not return, until He has executed and until He has performed the purposes of His heart; in the latter days you shall understand it perfectly" (vs 15-20). That's today.
If you have Trinity Channel on your cable network, watch Trinity network. If you haven't seen Joel Osteen recently, listen to him, and you will see these words fulfilled in your very ears. It's an amazing thing. Verse 21: "'I have not sent these prophets, yet they ran; I have not spoken to them, yet they prophesied…. [Now the next verse is an astounding verse.] …But if they had stood in My counsel and had caused My people to hear My words, then they would have turned them from their evil way and from the evil of their doings'" (vs 21-22). So the Word of God is true regardless who speaks it, even a false prophet and lo and behold the proof of the pudding is Balaam, who wanted to curse, but God made him bless. Isn't that something?

Now then he goes on here. Let's continue on here, v 23: "'Am I a God Who is near,' says the LORD, 'and not a God afar off?…. [God is as close as your prayer and repentance. Can't get any closer than that.] …Can anyone hide himself in secret places so that I shall not see him?' says the LORD. 'Do I not fill the heavens and the earth?' says the LORD…. [Yes, look out there and see how He filled the heavens and the earth, not with His bodily presence, of course, but with His power and creation.] …I have heard what the prophets said, who prophesy lies in My name, saying "I have dreamed, I have dreamed." How long shall this be in the heart of the prophets who prophesy lies and who are prophets of the deceit of their own heart? They scheme to cause My people to forget My name by their dreams which they tell, each one to his neighbor, as their fathers have forgotten My name for Baal…. [So here's God's conclusion:] …The prophet who has a dream, let him tell a dream. And he who has My Word, let him speak My Word faithfully….'" (vs 23-28).

And that's where we are, brethren, to use the Word of God faithfully. That's why this Bible is called A Faithful Version, because we want to faithfully represent the Word of God as best that we can. Where we've missed the mark a little bit, which in some cases we have, we'll correct that. God will make it known and we will take care of it. But notice v 29: "'Is not My Word like a fire?' says the LORD; 'and like a hammer that breaks the rock in pieces.'"

Now let me read you an article called Fallen Idols. Here's a man who undoubtedly has studied his Bible, but he is also a man who is a public official and having to deal with the end result of crime on a daily basis. And having been a sheriff for many years, he has seen the corruption and degradation of the population and the society all around him. So let me read what he wrote. His name is Sheriff Jim R. Schwiesow, kind of a combination between German and Polish. March 9, 2009, newswithviews.com. Now he put the Biblical things in words that people can understand, because when you hear a preacher reading a Scripture, most people do this: put their fingers in their ears and run out screaming. Now I take a man like this, as one of the prophets that God has raised up to tell the truth. That doesn't necessarily mean that he is qualifying for salvation. I don't know him; I don't know his heart, but he certainly knows his Bible and what he is talking about.

The inescapable truth is that the American people love the lie…

We are obsessed and possessed with lies and virtual reality of hundreds and thousands of kinds all day long through television, radio, books, video games, virtual-reality glasses, where you can actually put those on and you can feel like you are walking down a street somewhere ten thousand miles away from you, and hear all the sights and sounds like you're just there. And no one wants to face the truth.

…if that were not the case they would not follow the lies of their political leaders with such assiduous relish.

'Oh, Obama was on Jay Leno. Oh, he was cool!' He was an idiot. We have the president we have because that's the way the more majority of people are and they voted for him, so we deserve him. That's part of the punishment and oppression for our sins that God has sentenced us with.

Like Pavlov's dogs they salivate over political predicts that titillate their selfish desires with a false affirmation of gain without effort, riches without endeavor… ['oh, we're going to spread the wealth around.'] …and a golden parachute without enterprise. They applaud the deceitfulness of their political gods and rest upon the promises of these, their heathen select… [this is really very well written] …They abhor the truth and adulate the lie. It is the American way; it is the devil's way.

This nation is now on the fringe of the most egregious time in its entire history and on the insipid edge of the most complete and devastating economic collapse that has ever been experienced or will ever be experienced…. [that is up to this date. He needs to read a little more, the book of Revelation.] …A collapse that will set into motion a series of cataclysmic events that will humble a spiritually impoverished people to the deepest depths of their souls. Millions may not survive these times and those who do will have wished many times through the course of events that they could die. [sound a little bit like Deuteronomy 28? Yes, indeed.]

Where they have known plenty they will know hunger and starvation, where they have known wellness they will know pestilence and disease, where they have known peace they will know strife and mind-numbing violence…

And I raised this question before, and I raise it again, because in channel surfing the other night I saw one of the maximum prisons for the most violent criminals in America. What are they going to do with them when they have no food and no water and the guards refuse to stay there and the governor orders all of them to be released? Remember, we have more people in jail than any country on earth and we have a lot of violent Mexican gang members there, too. When they come out they are going to be looking to rob and steal and kill and plunder and to take revenge for their incarceration. Because that's the kind of people they are, dedicated to evil.

…mind-numbing violence, where they have known prosperity they will know abject impoverishment and wrenching want and where they have known safety a holocaust and fiery destruction now awaits them. These are the wages due a sin-laden people.

Now remember this, there's a man who's doing a movie or a documentary, I forget, but I saw the report on it and he gave a report, I forget which news channel it was on, but in doing his interviews with many people he said, 'You know, the average person lies three times within ten minutes.' Doesn't the Bible say the human heart is what? 'Deceitful above all things and desperately wicked.' He was astonished and that's no telling how many other lies fleeted through their minds while they were conversing.

As I write. our idols, the secular gods of this nation disintegrate before our eyes. As magically as they seem to appear, the monies in investment accounts disappear…

I know I had a woman call and say, I've lost 40% of my 401K, what am I going to do? I said, 'You're going to have to make the decision yourself, but if it were me I wouldn't leave a penny in there a minute longer.' If you have a 401K or an IRA, figure how you can transfer that over into a gold-backed security. That way you may not lose as much. You have to be very careful of those, too, because they're paper-backed securities.

Think for a minute, why is this happening? Because the degree of sin and stench has reached up into the nostrils of God; and God has blessed this nation with the best of everything. Yet, we've forgotten God. And God wants everyone to learn the lesson: you cannot live your life, even in the world in a carnal way, and neglect God. At least keep His commandments in the letter. And who was responsible to take it to the world? Israel. That's the covenant that God made with Israel, Exodus 19, 'that you will be a kingdom of priests to Me.' For what? The world.

So I want you to think on this: yes, we publish Bibles; yes, we send out missionaries; yes, .we did a lot of things, but we didn't teach them what? The three most important things:

  • Sabbath
  • Passover
  • Holy Days

Did we? No. Instead, we absorbed their ways. Instead, we included their diversity and instead of honoring God, we wanted to know how these people worshipped their gods. So we sponsored the Parliament of World's Religions, the first one in 1893 and from 1893 until this day, and remember 1893 was less than fifteen years from the first Westcott and Hort changing of the New Testament and subsequently the Old Testament which started the avalanche of getting the Word of God out of the churches and out of the Bibles.

So since we failed, that was our commission, that was our job. 'Oh, we brought them democracy. Oh, we'll bring them freedom,' but you see freedom without knowing God is not freedom; because that freedom leads to the enslavement of the chains of sin. So what has God done? The message to Israel is this: 'since you did not do what I wanted you to do, and since you are doing worse than the heathen, and you are killing up to date fifty-million of My special creation of new children in the womb, your judgment day has come. It has already been coming bit by bit. I sent wave after wave of immigrants, which would not have come had you not killed all those innocent unborn, because they would have been born and they could have had those jobs But because you reject Me and reject My laws and reject My way, and you make it official through the government and the Supreme Court; therefore, I allowed to be raised up atheistic societies and God-haters to see if you would return to Me or not.' Never happen.

…investments are depleted, private and public retirement systems are bankrupt, bank reserves dissipate, industrial conglomerates, heretofore thought to be inviolable, sink into oblivion…. [General Motors, AIG, amazing] …Overbuilt and overpriced mansions are vacant and abandoned to decay, savaged by vandals and they are left to rot on their foundations. Boats, recreation vehicles, fine automobiles clog the lots of dealers for want of buyers. Fine furniture and appliances to accessorize now vacant houses gather dust in showrooms and expensive personal accoutrements and fine clothing languish on store racks.

Like Sodom and Gomorrah we have spent ourselves into oblivion being obsessed with sex and lies and pleasures. Right in the middle of this, what is going on? Oh, March madness, the NCAA tournament, and everybody all has their mind on that. What's going on behind the scenes?

Drastic reduction in prices and urgent sales entice no customers and empty store fronts look onto empty mall corridors like ghostly specters. The home mortgage debacle was merely a blip on a screen that ushered in the beginning of an economic recession…

Because remember, it would take $600-trillion to correct all the financial debacles in the world and there's not that much money around and Mr. Ben Bernanke couldn't print it fast enough.

…the collapse of the commercial real estate markets will set off a raging economic fire that will polish off the economy and send the country into a depression from which there will be no recovery. [Now he ought to know.]

A Luciferian apparition hovered over the darkly ritualized inauguration of Barak Hussein Obama, a/k/a/ Barry Soetoro. It was an occultist celebration of demonic design, sodomy was celebrated, Rick Warren the new age preacher of the Council of Foreign Relations mocked Jesus Christ with a prayer in the name of Isa a false Moslem Jesus and Almighty God was likened to Allah. Satan must have been greatly pleased with the sacrament ceremony that was replete with all the appropriate occult ritual. A sodomite bishop… [who is married to another sodomite] …was selected by Obama to lead prayers at inauguration events and peripheral events were sate with deviant orgies. Without solemnization of demonic rule the death of the United States was sealed.

Now there's much more to it, so if you want it, go on line to newswithviews.com.

And as I mentioned, it all came because the preachers wanted to have it their way. Come here to Isaiah 30, please. And the people wanted it that way. I've thought about this for a time or two, when I have watched Joel Osteen tell his nice wonderful little stories. I thought, I wonder what would happen if someone would stand up there in the pulpit, in full view of the television screen and the sixteen thousand sitting out there, and they have three services a day and rake in lots of money, and if he stood up there and said, 'All you people have your Bibles. I want you to turn to the Scripture which says, Remember the Sabbath day to keep it Holy. 'You are all dismissed, go home and repent, and come back here next week on Sabbath, Saturday, and we're closing the doors on Sunday.' I think the security guards would have that person in hand, rushing him quickly off of the stage, don't you? As a nut and a kook, because here's what they want and the people want it because every time he tells us a nice, pleasing story, everybody applauds.
Let's read it here. Just like in Jeremiah 23, it's the end-time, right? Isaiah 30:8: "Now go, write it before them in a tablet, and note it in a book, so that it may be for the time to come forever and ever…. [that means the end-times] …That this is a rebellious people, lying children. They are children who will not hear the law of the LORD; Who say to the seers, 'See not,' and to the prophets, 'Do not prophesy to us right things, speak to us smooth things, prophesy illusions…. [your fantasy reality] …Go out of the way, turn aside out of the path, cause the Holy One of Israel to cease from before us'" (vs 8-11). Isn't that what they have written? Yes. It all lies at the feet of the Protestant ministers and the Catholic priests with more of the Protestant ministers who began to usher in lawlessness through Sunday-keeping and a false grace that did away with the laws and commandments of God. And it is built over the past two hundred plus years and what have they said about democracies? How long do they last? About two-hundred years. We are right there, aren't we? Yes, indeed.

Verse 12: "Therefore thus says the Holy One of Israel, 'Because you have despised this word, and trust in oppression and perverseness, and rely on them; Therefore this iniquity shall be to you as a breach ready to fall, swelling out in high wall, whose breaking comes suddenly, in an instant'" (vs 12-13). Have you ever driven by a brick wall and watched it through the years, maybe you'd be on your way to go to work, and with the rain and the moisture, it bulges out a little bit, then bulges out a little bit, and bulges out a little bit, then all of a sudden one morning you come by and here's all the city repair crew with trucks and men and backhoes and front-hoes and they are scooping up the wall that fell. That's what happened economically with us. The wall collapsed. All of a sudden and there it was.

"'And He shall break it as the breaking of the potters' vessel that is smashed in pieces. He shall not spare, so that there shall not be found in the fragments a shard to take fire from the hearth, or to take water out of the pit'" (v 14). Quite descriptive, isn't it? Yes, indeed.

 (go to track #2)

Let's look at some other prophesies and let's see how they are being fulfilled now. It's very interesting how these things start. Let me ask you a question. What is the famous quotation for the Feast of Unleavened Bread, one sentence? 'A little leaven leavens the whole lump.' So at any point in history you're looking at something, you don't really understand from where it started, but if you really analyze what has happened and where we are today, this is why it's important to read history and know the rise and fall of nations; and know that God judges nations. From the founding of the country, how many opportunities were there to get rid of Sunday and keep the Sabbath? Many, many, many. And then we come down again to the year 1893. Not only was that the year for the first Parliament of World's Religions in America, that was the year that Cardinal Gibbon wrote in the Baltimore Mirror Rome's Challenge to the Protestants, which we've sent out in the new booklet A Sabbath/Sunday Challenge You May Have Never Read. So you have all of this time and then look at the wars involved, look at the difficulties that we have gone through; look at the religious revivals that came along and they all neglected the most important thing: the Sabbath day, to let them know truly who God is. So because of that then it degenerated down into—you have a religion of grace with no law, which then creates lawlessness. Then all of these other things start multiplying and adding on just like leaven, leavens the whole lump. So now we are here with the whole lump leavened.

Let's continue on and see the prophecy that we are witnessing today that we have warned of for many years that was going to happen. Come back to Deuteronomy 28. Again, I ask you to read the whole of Deuteronomy 28, and realize what is happening. Think about it, not only is this for Israel but particularly for Israel, but also many parts of it are for the other nations of the world because of their idolatry and Satanism, and so forth. Look at the abject nations of the world, the ones that are most deeply involved in demonic worship, witchcraft, superstition. What is the level of their daily life? Hand-to-mouth. Look at South Africa.

We have an article coming from the manager of our office down there, Helmut Berger. He wrote it before Obama was elected and we decided to withhold until we see how he's doing, but it will be coming very soon. The same thing happened down in South Africa; and South Africa was a warning to all the nations of Israel when it happened, when Mandela took over as president. And in that article you find out what happened to the people, and isn't it interesting there's a perverse quirkiness of the human mind. You see it over there, you say to yourself, 'Why that couldn't possibly happen here.' Isn't that true? And you see what happened to the Anglo-Saxon and the Hollanders and Dutch Afrikaners down in South Africa and you think, 'Oh, that's terrible, but it will never happen here.' Therefore, we didn't take notice of what happened.

So when you get the article you will see Deuteronomy 28 past tense, already happened in South Africa. So let's look at it contemporary present tense, happening in America, and Britain is five years ahead of us. Deuteronomy 28:32: "Your sons and your daughters shall be given to another people, and your eyes shall look and fail for them all the day long. And there shall be no power in your hand…. [We're going to come to a point that there is nothing we can do.] …The fruit of your land and all your labors shall be eaten up by a nation which you do not know…. [That has been happening and will continue to happen.] …And you shall only be oppressed and crushed always… [We haven't known that yet, but that's coming. Read some of the laws of what they want to do, some of the things that they are proposing.] …And you shall be driven mad because of that which you shall see with the sight of your eyes. The LORD shall strike you in the knees and in the legs with an evil ulcer that cannot be healed, from the sole of your foot to the top of your head.... [Read Isaiah 1 where it says that 'you are sick from the sole of your foot to the top of your head.'] …The LORD shall bring upon you, and your king which you shall set over you… [And remember we just had an election, more likened to the coronation of a king than any other president before.] …to a nation which neither you nor your fathers have known…." (vs 32-36).

Isn't it interesting, our president is really an alien and has not had the honesty to produce a valid birth certificate. Now that shows you how dishonest we are as a people. "…And there you shall serve other gods, wood and stone. And you shall become an astonishment, a proverb, a byword among all nations where the LORD shall lead you…. [Who knows where we will go. Who knows what will happen in America. The Russians are predicting that we will disintegrate into seven regions in the lower forty-eight states. I wonder will it happen?] …You shall carry much seed out into the field and shall gather little in, for the locust shall eat it" (vs 37-38). And other bugs and things like that.

We have these wonderful modern scientific seed companies who've invented a death seed. You ever heard of that? That's what they want to sell, so you are enslaved as a farmer or rancher to them to buy their seed, because it will not reproduce its own seed once you plant it in the ground and the plant has grown. It is a death seed. Think what that will do to the health of the people if they ever get it out. So far they've stopped it. In Connecticut they're talking about outlawing private gardens, because 'we don't know whether there might be salmonella there or not and we don't know how they're going to treat the food or not.' Insanity has come upon us and we think, 'Oh, Connecticut. That's way away, but over here in Idaho and Washington that won't happen.' When you first heard of homosexuals in San Francisco and Greenwich Village in New York, you probably said the same thing, 'Oh, that'll never happen here.'

"You shall plant vineyards and dress them, but shall neither drink the wine nor gather, for the worm shall eat them. You shall have olive trees throughout all your coasts, but you shall not anoint yourself with the oil, for your olive tree shall drop off its fruit. You shall beget sons and daughters, but you shall not enjoy them…" (vs 39-41). Wow! Doesn't that describe modern families today? Can't enjoy your own kids because they'll tell you to 'go to hell, I'm going to do my own thing,' as they march out the door with their nose jewels, pierced tongues, tattoos, and occult music; their brains and their minds scrambled with everything that they have been taught; and mixed together like an absolute cesspool of poison so that their minds are incapable of thinking rational thoughts any longer.

"…for they shall go into captivity…. [could very well be, they're unemployable. Where are they going to work? What are they going to do? What do you think some of these criminal gangs will do when they come across some of these snot-nosed teenagers? 'Oh, but that'll never happen here.'] …All your trees and the fruit of your land the locust shall possess. The stranger dwelling among you shall get up above you very high, and you shall come down very low" (vs 41-43). We are on the downward slide. Now when it says very high and it says very low, God means it. I don't about you, but in California you can walk into a store and you think for sure you're in a foreign country, maybe somewhere in Asia or somewhere in South America. And in Detroit you can go into some of the stores in Dearborn, which is the suburb of Detroit, and you will swear you are in a Moslem country because the Moslem's rule that section of town. That's where the first Moslem representative was sworn in on a Koran, remember that? Yes. Remember Louis Farrakhan in Chicago and his Nation of Islam church, which is really nothing more than a large army of thugs. But that will never happen here. How about the native Indians in this area?

We'll be brought down very low, that's happening. There are people who are unemployed because they cannot speak Spanish. You walk into the post office and sometimes you're inclined to say, 'Do you have a clerk here that speaks English?' "He shall loan to you, and you shall not loan to him. He shall be the head, and you shall be the tail" (v 44). We owe money to everybody in the world. What did the Chinese recently say? The minister of finance in China said, 'America, we hate you, because we've got all of these bonds and they may become worthless.' So Hillary makes a trip over there and says, 'Now, please, please buy our bonds because we're joined to the hip economically.' But her message was when she came back, "Bernanke, you better print up seven-hundred-billion dollars to buy the bonds back from the Chinese, because they don't want them.'
Two comments were made. The first one was that several years ago Hillary went over there, Bill went over there too, and told them that Tiananmen Square was wrong. You know what their answer's going to be? 'Yeah, you can castigate us, but we'll bring Tiananmen Square to you.' Then the other comment was the Chinese and the other ones are going to demand collateral. Question: are there laws on the books to confiscate your homes? Question: did you know that there are two United States of America? One, the country and one, the corporation formed under FDR and put under maritime law instead of common law, so the state could borrow from the Federal Reserve, which is an international banking institution. Has nothing to do with the government. And I'm trying to get verification, I got a report that they send offshore all their profits. I wonder where that goes?

To bring you up to date—how are the other countries going to rule us economically? Got a report right here. I gave a sermon on it some time ago. Here's a nice wonderful picture of that friendly man Vladimir Putin who is pitching for global currency, as Sarkozy of France and various other ones are, and guess what's going on now in England is the G-7 meetings with Russia there. You know, seven plus one. They have a new group called the G-20 and the G-20 are the leading banking nations of the world which control 95-98% of all the economies and monies in the world. They're trying to work on a solution to solve the problem with the dollar. Now it's a difficult problem to solve because everybody has to deal in dollars. While at the same time the dollar is going down, all of the other currencies in the world are also going down. So keep you eyes on a coming single-global currency.

Now what has to happen to bring that about? No, not the demise of the dollar, of all economies? And you level the playing field so that the laborer in China will be paid in the world currency the same as laborers in America, and since we're being brought down to nothing, we will both be on an even scale, correct? Yes. So think about that in relationship to what is happening, and also remember this, every prophesy of the Bible will be fulfilled to its maximum, not its minimum. Keep that in mind. A lot of people like to try and hurry up and rush things along and say, 'It says there the temple in Revelation 11, well do you suppose that could be a holy place? Or do you suppose it could be a tabernacle?' My answer is no. Do you think the Jews would settle for a little piece of ground blessed, when they have everything ready to go for the temple? No, they're going to build the temple. When it's time to build it, they'll build it and they'll build it in a hurry, because it's really a small building, by today's standards.

Just like the stranger will get very high above you and you'll be brought very low. It's going to happen, to its maximum. Now God will watch over and protect us, but nevertheless we're going to be sheep for the slaughter, too. And unless we are well grounded in what God has for us, we're not going to be able to stand either. So we need to understand that. Now with this I am not trying to frighten you, though it may. Don't be frightened, go to God and get strength. Read Psalm 91 on your knees; make that part of your prayer, because it's going to happen.

Verse 45: "And all these curses shall come on you, and shall pursue you and overtake you, until you are destroyed because you did not obey the voice of the LORD your God to keep His commandments and His statutes which He commanded you. And they shall be on you for a sign and for a wonder, and on your seed forever…. [That means from that time down to the return of Christ.] ...Because you did not serve the LORD your God with joyfulness and with gladness of heart for the abundance of all things. Therefore you shall serve your enemies which the LORD shall send against you in hunger, and in thirst, and in nakedness, and in the want of all things. And he shall put a yoke of iron on your neck until he has destroyed you. The LORD shall bring a nation against you from far, from the end of the earth as the eagle flies, a nation whose language you shall not understand. A nation fierce of countenance who shall not regard the person of the old, nor show favor to the young" (vs 45-50). Those are the words of God.

Now let me just give you a little collaborating evidence here. Let's take one state and the title of this is Just One State (California){taken from the internet}:

  • 40% of all workers in LA County… [and LA County has 10.2-million people] …are working for cash and not paying taxes. This is because they are predominately illegal immigrants working without a green card.
  • 95% of warrants for murder in Los Angeles are for illegal aliens.
  • 75% of people on the most-wanted list in Los Angeles are illegal aliens.
  • Over 2/3 of all births in Los Angeles County are illegal alien Mexicans on Medi-Cal, whose births are paid for by taxpayers.
  • Nearly 35% of all inmates in California detention centers are Mexican nationals here illegally.
  • Over 300,000 illegal aliens in Los Angeles County are living in garages…

And it's just like Mexico's dump slums and a white person better never show up because you probably won't get out alive.

  • The FBI reports half of all gang members in Los Angeles are most likely illegal aliens from south of the border.
  • Nearly 60% of all the occupants of HUD properties are illegal.
  • 21 radio stations in LA are Spanish-speaking.'

The other night after Sabbath services in Arcadia I drove home and I was surfing the channels on the radio. I heard more Spanish channels than English.

  • In LA County 5.1-million speak English, 3.9 million speak Spanish…

And the rest Chinese and Vietnamese. I have joked several times that maybe for survival I need to learn Chinese and Spanish.

Now let's talk about totally ridiculous. There are fourteen things where money is spent beside the war in Iraq:

  • $11-22-billion is spent on welfare for illegal aliens each year by state governments.
  • $2.2-billion a year is spent for food-assistant programs such as food stamps, WIC, free school lunches for illegal aliens.
  • $2.5-billion a year is spent on Medicaid for illegal aliens.

In our area I am a minority and my wife is even more of a distinct minority because she has red hair and has very light pink skin and some freckles. So my personal opinion is she's more entitled to welfare than anybody I know. But if she went down and said, 'Look at me, I'm a minority,' probably the Mexican in charge would speak to her in Spanish and tell her in so many words 'get out of here, we control this.'

  • $12-billion a year is spent on primary and secondary education for children here illegally and they cannot speak a word of English.
  • $17-billion a year is spent for education for American-born children of illegal aliens known as anchor babies…

That is once they're born here, they are anchored in here and you can't get the folks out.

  • $3-million a DAY is spent to incarcerate illegal aliens.
  • 30% of all federal prison inmates are illegal aliens.
  • $90-billion a year is spent on illegal aliens for welfare, social services, by the American taxpayer…

Are they taking our money? Are we loaning it to them? We are giving them borrowed dollars, are we not? Yes. Bernanke, you need to print another three hundred trillion so we can handle this.

  • $200-billion a year in suppressed American wages caused by illegal aliens.
  • Illegal aliens in the United States have a crime rate two and a half times that of white non-illegal aliens. In addition their children are going to make a huge additional crime problem in the U.S.
  • During the year 2005 there were 4-10-million illegal aliens crossed our southern border also, as many as 19,500 illegal immigrants from terrorist countries. Millions of pounds of drugs, cocaine, meth, heroin, and marijuana crossed into the United States from the southern border.

You know why they don't shut it down? Because the super-elite shadow-government received income from them. That's why.

  • The National Policy Institute 'estimated that the total cost mass deportation would be between $206-230-billion.

So someone says, 'We'll solve the problem, we'll deport them all.' All right, you come up with the money to do it. Do you have $206-billion to get rid of them? The lesson is when we as a people go against the laws of God and God's judgment comes upon us, does God's judgment come upon us and stick, with no solution because there's no repentance? Yes! Do you think you could go into Congress or the Supreme Court or the office of the President or Homeland Security and say, 'Listen, let's repent. We'll accept all of these illegal's if they will likewise repent and give up their gods and give up their guns and give up their crime and give up their nationality and take out citizenship in American and we can live with that.' They would say, 'You're insane.'

  • In 2006 illegal aliens sent home $45-billion in remittances to their countries of origin.
  • The Dark Side of Illegal Immigration: Nearly one-million sex crimes committed by illegal immigrants in the United States.

The total cost—$338.3-billion a year. All because you've got to have sex and kill the results of it in abortion.

Now let's read some other prophesies. Come to the book of Amos 3:10: "'For they do not know to do right,' says the LORD… [because everyone does right in his own eyes.] …those who store up violence and robbery in their palaces.' Thus says the Lord GOD, 'An enemy! And he shall be all around the land… [is that true? Did I just not read it?] …and he shall bring you down from your strength, and your palaces shall be plundered.' Thus says the LORD, 'As the shepherd takes two legs out of the mouth of the lion, or a piece of an ear, so shall the children of Israel be taken out—those who dwell in Samaria in the corner of a bed, and in Damascus on a couch. Hear and testify in the house of Jacob,' says the Lord GOD, the God of hosts, 'For in the day that I shall visit the transgressions of Israel on him, I will also visit the altars of Bethel. And the horns of the altar shall be cut off and shall fall to the ground…. [the first fulfillment happened, it's coming here] …And I will strike the winter house together with the summer house, and the houses of ivory shall perish. And the great houses shall be swept away,' says the LORD" (vs 10-15).

Now let's come down to Amos 4:9: "'I have stricken with blasting and mildew. When your gardens and your vineyards, and your fig trees, and your olive trees increased, the creeping locust devoured them; yet you have not returned to Me,' says the LORD. 'I have sent the plague among you after the manner of Egypt… [Instead of repenting and going to God, what do we do? We say, 'Oh, Obama, give us health care.'] …I have slain your young men with the sword and have taken away your horses…. [now how are we going to be without cars? Think of that for a minute.] …And I have made the stench of your camps to come up into your nostrils; yet you have not returned to Me,' says the LORD. 'I have overthrown some among you as God overthrew Sodom and Gomorrah, and you were like a firebrand plucked out of the burning; yet you have not returned to Me,' says the LORD" (vs 9-11).

Now some of these things are not going to happen immediately. Some of these things are going to be a year, two years, five years, ten years down the road, but they are coming. And we will be in such a condition that the whole world is going to hate us and will rejoice at our fall.

So God says this: '"Therefore I will do this to you, O Israel; and because I will do this to you, prepare to meet your God, O Israel!.… [That's where the judgment's going to come down to.] …For lo, He forms the mountains and creates the wind, and declares to man what his thought is. He who makes the morning darkness, and treads upon the high places of the earth—the LORD, the God of hosts, is His name" (vs 12-13).

So America is being prepared to meet their Maker and out of it all, and out of all the doom and gloom, may there be repentance; and may God have mercy on as many as will turn to Him. Because that's what God wants out of it. God says, 'O house of Israel, I do not delight in the death of the wicked, but that the wicked turn from his evil way. For why will you die, O house of Israel?' So I think we need to ask God:

  • to help us,
  • to strengthen us,
  • to give us resolve,
  • to give us courage,
  • and to understand what is going to happen.

It's always interesting, too, how many times have we thought and said, 'Oh, we'll live at the time that Jesus returns'? And we think, 'Oh, wonderful.' And somehow in those kinds of thoughts we set aside all the judgment and all of the destruction and all of the things that God says are going to go on.

Now it's not pleasant to go through these things. I do not delight in going through this nor seeing it happen before my very eyes on the television and reports and news that I hear. But God says we better warn. God says we better make sure that we are right with Him and so that's why it's necessary. So don't let these things overwhelm you and don't let these things be so imposing upon your emotions that you get frightened and scared to death. Please do not, because God is there and He will help and He will watch over and He will comfort. So always keep that in mind and even though you live clear up here in this neck of the woods of Washington and Idaho and all of that sort of thing, it's coming near a town close to you.
