Greetings, everyone! Welcome to Sabbath services!

It's important to understand the prophecies the way God wants them understood. I did a little interesting reading in a book that was printed in 1902 written by G.G. Rupert: The Inspired History of the Nations

In going through it he understood quite a bit, but he couldn't put the sequence of Revelation together. He was an ex-Seventh Day Adventist who became Church of God Seventh Day.

I learned another little interesting thing: the reason he goes by G.G. Rupert is because his first name is Greenberry. I don't know who thought of that name as a first name, but probably his mother or father. He did have some understanding about Israel in prophecy.

Even in today's world, there are a lot of people who are saying that they're giving this prophecy and that prophecy, and they're reading this and that from the Bible and putting thing together.

When you listen to them, they miss a lot of very important things, which are keys to understanding what God is doing. It's also very important for us to realize that it doesn't matter how brilliant anyone is or how much they have studied the Bible

There is a ceiling on their understanding in their minds if they don't do the most important thing. What is that? Psa. 111:10!

That is what has happened to the Protestants, and I keep up on them from time to time, because when I get bored with the news, I turn on the religious channel and soon get bored with what they have. They read certain Scriptures and they 'fall off the cliff.'

Psalm 111:10: "The fear of the LORD is the beginning of wisdom…"

People say, 'We have to love the Lord.' Yes, that's true! But you better fear the Lord if you're not going to do what He says! Look at the things that are going to happen in the book of Revelation, and you better fear God, His might, His power and His capabilities, because who are we as human beings to tell God what to do?

"…a good understanding… [a right and proper understanding] …have all those… [here's the requirement]: …who do His commandments. His praise endures forever" (v 10).

A lot of people say that if you keep the commandments you're trying to work out your salvation. No, you're not! You're staying within what God has commanded. If you read the Bible, you find out that the Law of God is perfect.

Do you think that the perfect God of Truth is going to take the perfect commandments and His Laws and do away with them because men misunderstand the Bible? NO!

Remember that one mistake and error uncorrected and unrepented of leads eventually to another mistake and error, which is not repented of, will sooner or later lead to another error and unrepentance. It builds!

If you don't believe that, think about all the people you knew when you went to church years ago, where are they? The Lord gives, and the Lord takes away.

Psa. 112 answers the question, because false Christianity today says that 'if you try to keep the Law, you're under curse.' NO! They know nothing about Judaism, and all those references there are the laws and traditions of Judaism!

Note our book: Judaism—Revelation of Moses or Religion of Men by Philip Neal. If you don't believe that, go read Matt. 23 and you'll find out what Jesus thought of the scribes and Pharisees and their traditions, their commandments and their laws. Even thought they kept some of the Laws of God, their laws and traditions were contrary to the Word of God. You will see that Jesus called them fools and hypocrites! In the Greek the word 'fool' means in the English moron!

Psalm 112:1: "Praise the LORD! Blessed is the man…"—or woman.

  • Do you want the blessings from God?
  • Is that what you desire?

"…who fears the LORD, who delights greatly in His commandments" (v 1). You look at them and see how good they are! How righteous they are!

All prophecy has been hidden. In some cases it runs parallel. In some cases there are parts here, parts of it there, parts in the Old Testament, parts in the New Testament.

Daniel is one of the great men of God. We're going to look at lot of the things that Daniel was given to write down and preserve for us so that we can understand prophecies today.

At the end of all of this, Daniel wanted to know when it was going to be. Same question we have today: When is it going to be?

A lot of these prophecies you don't want to be around to see, because they're going to be very difficult indeed, as you can see by what is happening today.

Daniel 12:8: "And I heard, but I did not understand. Then I said, 'O my lord, what shall be the end of these things?'"

Go back and look at all the prophecies that Daniel made, those are some tremendous prophecies stretching from that time clear on down to our day, to the return of Christ.

Verse 9: "And he [the angel] said, 'Go your way, Daniel, for the words are closed up and sealed until the time of the end.'"

We read in other places that God hides things. He hides it in plain sight, right in the Bible. There are certain keys that we need to know to understand. If we don't know them, we're going to make mistakes. One thing that is important, if you do make a mistake correct it!

Verse 10: "Many shall be purified, and made white and refined. But the wicked shall do wickedly… [that's exactly what we find today] …and none of the wicked shall understand, but the wise shall understand."

  • a good understanding are those who keep His commandments
  • the wise shall understand
  • if you keep the commandments of God—the way that God wants them kept—you are wise

Any Protestants out there listening for the first time: surprise! Sunday never replaced the Sabbath by the command of God! Are you willing to repent and understand that you've been doing wrong all that time?

Books to get from

  • America and Britain: Two Nations that Changed the Worldby Philip Neal

Who are the people of Jacob or Israel today? They didn't all die out! They didn't all intermarry with the Gentiles! God said in the book of Amos that He would not lose one seed of the house of Israel.

Sidebar: think on this: Have you ever read Rev. 7—a lot of you have—what's in Rev. 7? There's the salvation, first of all, of the 12 tribes of Israel, beginning with Judah! It lists every one of the 12, and there are 12,000 specially chosen out of each of the 12 tribes to make up the total of 144,000.

Since that is an end-time prophecy, what does this prove? That the 12 tribes of Israel are still here today!

How can you save 12,000 from each tribe if they're all intermarried into the Gentiles like the Jews say? Then the Jews take upon themselves to claim all the promises of God that was given to the 12 tribes. So, they're stealing from their brothers.

  • The Appointed Times of Jesus the Messiah by Fred R. Coulter

All of these things are appointed times, and many of them are all centered around the Sabbath and Holy Days of God.

  • God's Plan for Mankind Revealed by His Sabbath and Holy Days (2nd ed.) by Fred R. Coulter

Put all of that together and you find out that unless you believe God, and keep His commandments, and live in the end-times, you won't understand! Let's read on in Dan. 12:

Verse 11: "And from the time that the daily sacrifice shall be taken away…"

Where are the sacrifices to be offered according to the Law of God? At the tabernacle or temple!

"…and the abomination that causes desolation is set up, there shall be a thousand two hundred and ninety days" (v 11).

We're not told when that starts, but we can look and see when it's finished!

Now let's look at the latter days of the 12 tribes of Israel, Gen. 48-49. This is very important for us to understand.

Gen. 48 is the account of the death of Jacob. Remember that all the other sons of Jacob sold Joseph into captivity. Then they faked his murder by taking blood from a goat and putting it on his coat and taking it to the father—Jacob. Talk about a nasty, evil thing to do to a father. They said that Joseph was dead.

Joseph was taken to Egypt and served one of the Egyptians. Then the wife of the Egyptian tried to seduce him into adultery and he refused. Then she falsely accused him and he was thrown in prison.

Then when he could tell the dream of the baker and wine pourer (cupbearer). Pharaoh said that one of your will live and one will die. Sure enough it happened that way.

When the Pharaoh of Egypt had a dream about seven fat calves and 7 lean calves, he wanted to know what it meant. He had the dream three times. Then the one who lived to serve the Pharaoh told the Pharaoh that 'there is a man in prison named Joseph and he can tell you the dream.'

Why am I telling you this? This is all background for what we're going to understand concerning America and Britain today! History goes way back!

  • every word of God is true
  • every word of God will be fulfilled

It came time for Jacob—whose name is Israel—to die (at 147 years). All of us who think we're old, get over it, we're not, we're just youngsters compared to the patriarchs. Now, to back up a little bit:

When the famine hit, the whole family, including Jacob/Israel, ended up in Egypt and they knew and understood that the second in command of Egypt was Joseph. The patriarch is the one who gives God's blessing to the descendants. So, the patriarch Israel—who is also called Jacob—called for Joseph and two sons.

Sidebar: At that time Egypt was not ruled by the people of Ham. It was basically a white nation with many different nations in Egypt. There's a false doctrine out there that the descendants of Ham were the chosen people. That's not true!

Jacob called for Joseph and brought his two sons—1st born Manasseh, and 2nd born Ephraim. By this time Jacob was nearly blind. So, Joseph brought his sons in to be blessed by Jacob. Jacob wasn't so stupid as Joseph thought.

He took his hands to be put on the heads of the two boys, and the right hand should have gone on the head to the first born Manasseh, but he didn't, he put it on Ephraim and the other hand on Manasseh. Then Jacob gave the blessing and said, 'Let my name be named on them.'

That was quite a thing! When that was given, God honored that blessing. He said that Ephraim would be greater than Manasseh, but Manasseh would become great, too. The question is: When?

Genesis 49:1: "And Jacob called to his sons and said, 'Gather yourselves together, that I may tell you what shall happen to you in the last days.'"

When did they start? We don't know exactly, but we can make an educated guess! I'll get to that later. Then Jacob goes through all 12 sons; you can read the blessing that he gave to each one. Keep "…the last days" in mind! That's phrase we're going to see—the latter days and the last days—quite often as we go through this series. Notice the blessing:

Verse 22: "Joseph is a fruitful bough, a fruitful bough by a well, whose branches run over the wall. The archers have fiercely attacked him and have shot at him, and hated him. But his bow abode in strength, and the arms of his hands were made strong by the hands of the mighty God of Jacob—from there is the Shepherd, the Stone of Israel—" (vs 22-24).

All the questions concerning these Scriptures is answered in the book: American and Britain in prophecy.

Look at the blessing that comes. Remember how many times Britain and America have said that we're great nations and great people. That's true, but they haven't given God enough credit.

Verse 25: "By the God of your father, Who shall help you. And may the Almighty bless you with blessings of heaven above, blessings of the deep that lies beneath, blessings of the breasts and of the womb. The blessings of your father are greater than the blessings of my ancestors, to the utmost bound of the everlasting hills. They shall be on the head of Joseph…" (vs 25-26).

That's quite a thing! He didn't say on the head of all 12 of them. He said Joseph, which means his two sons.

"…and on the crown of the head of him, the ruler, the leader who was separated from his brothers" (v 26).

In the end-time, when did it start? With Queen Elizabeth I! Then the great storm that God brought upon the Spanish Armada that came to try and bring Britain—who at that time Manasseh and Ephraim and many of the 12 tribes were living in Britain—God sunk the Armada!

By the time the reign of Elizabeth came to an end, Britain—which included America at that time—became the richest nation in Europe. Those blessings came and they came because of many times of war and conflict.

Is that when the last days began? Look at what happened! You had the British Empire and the American separation from Britain with the Revolutionary War and the blessings that came upon us. Look at the blessings to Ephraim; he would become a company of nations, a great empire. It was said that when it reached its height that the sun never set on the British Empire.

  • What did they bring? They could have done better, but they brought English and the Bible!
  • When America started, what did we base our start on? The Bible! The Word of God!

Just in our lifetime, how many wars… You can go back and start with the

  • Revolutionarily War, which was a separation by God and that's why the British lost.
  • War of 1812—Britain wasn't happy that they lost the colonies
  • Civil War—not counting all the wars with the Indians, who were the Canaanites.

America grew into being a strong nation, starting after the Civil War. That was bloody and Britain and the Vatican helped finance the Confederacy. But God didn't let them succeed. Look at the wars that we've had to go through:

  • Spanish-American War with Teddy Roosevelt
  • World War I—Who saved the world? America and Britain!
  • World War II
  • Who saved the world?
  • Who was mighty in battle?
  • Who was blessed of God?
  • Who thwarted the thoughts of Hitler to where he made stupid, bad decisions so the war could be won?
  • America and Britain secondarily! But America came to the fore!

After the war America became the greatest nation in the world, exactly as God has said! Since that time we have had:

  • Korean War
  • Vietnam War
  • 2 Iraq Wars
  • Afghan War
  • War on Terror

So here we are, a great nation that once really honored God. But now we are not! Now we are looking to our own devices, Britain as well as America! Whenever you reject God, then you get yourself in trouble. We've always had God in all of this.

I want you to think about Psa. 78 in relationship to Israel. Here's what Israel has always done and what this nation is doing. This is exactly what Protestantism is doing. Think about this: everyone—I don't care who you are or where you are, how young you are, how old you are, what language you speak—IF you have a Bible you are responsible to read it and study it, and obey it, because God has sent that to you! That means that when trouble comes you have no excuse!

Psalm 78:31: "The wrath of God came upon them and killed the strongest of them…"

Think about that every time you watch this ad on television Tunnels to Tower, all of those wounded, maimed and everything,

"…and struck down the chosen men of Israel. For all this they still sinned and did not believe in His wonderful works" (vs 31-32).

Whenever you leave God and begin to trust in yourself, that's going to happen. We all have on our money: "In God we Trust." We don't trust in God, we trust in our lies! That's what's happening to us (as a nation).

Verse 33: "Therefore, He ended their days in vanity and their years in terror."

What's the war we're fighting now? The War on Terror! Guess what, the dumbest President America has ever had let in thousands of terrorists!

Verse 34: "When He slew them, then they sought Him…" That's going to happen, as it has many times!

It's going to happen again Jan. 8 in Florida. They're going to have a rally to return to God, reconciliation, renewal and repentance: The Renewal: A spiritual Solution to America in Crisis {} January 8, 2022.

All of the same characters of the past are going to be there. There's one thing that has to happen:

"…and they turned back and sought after God earnestly" (vs 34). Let's see how earnest it will be!

If I were there, I would tell Jonathan Cahn:

You being a descendant of the priesthood are sinning against God because you re allowing those people who are not Jews to keep Sunday when the Bible that you profess to believe in, in the book of Isaiah says, 'The stranger is to honor the Sabbath' and you don't teach them! You let them keep on with their Sunday worship and when you had your great meeting in July 2020—the year of the election—what good did your prayer do? You didn't return them God!

Where is the blessing you asked for? Because you didn't lead them to true repentance of their sins, and lead them to keeping the commandments of God.

Here's what you did:

Verse 35: "And they remembered that God was their Rock, and the Most High God was their Redeemer. Nevertheless, they flattered Him…" (vs 35-36).

  • Isn't that what they do?
  • Don't they flatter God?
    • oh we love Your grace
    • oh we love Your love
    • oh it's unconditional

If it's unconditional, then why are punishments of the things that we have described coming upon us?

"…with their mouths, and they lied to Him with their tongues" (v 36)—because they didn't return to the Truth!

What is all of that bringing upon us? This is happened throughout the whole history of America! The only place where the greatest number of true Christians really are, are in America! The Gospel has to be preached from the United States of America; no other country in the world would tolerate it. That's the only reason!

Verse 37: "For their heart was not steadfast with Him; neither were they faithful in His covenant." Faithful means you love and you obey!

Verse 38: "But He, being full of compassion, forgave their iniquity and did not destroy them; yea, many times He turned His anger away and did not stir up all His wrath, for He remembered that they were but flesh, a wind that passes away and does not come again. How often did they provoke Him in the wilderness and grieve Him in the desert!" (vs 38-40).

  • How often in our cities do we provoke Him?
  • In the country?
  • In our education?
    • We provoke God!
    • We teach that there is no God!
    • His judgment is upon us!

That's the first thing to understand! Let's see what it's called. I want you to look at all the nations that are actually the descendants of Jacob, and I want you think about what's happening to them in their countries:

  • Britain
  • America
  • Canada
  • South Africa
  • New Zealand
  • Australia
  • Northwestern Europe

Stop and thing about what's happening! In each one there are varying degrees of punishment for leaving God.

  • How can that be?
  • How many have repented and returned to the true God to keep His commandments with the pandemic that's going on? Not very many!
  • Do we have a lot of trouble? Yes, we do!

Look at it! That's all part of prophecy! That's living prophecy taking place right before our eyes, right now!

Jeremiah 30:4: "And these are the words that the LORD spoke concerning Israel… [the 10 tribes] …and concerning Judah"—the Jews!

Are the Jews having trouble? There isn't a single day that they don't have trouble where the Jews are!

Verse 5: "For thus says the LORD, 'We have heard a voice of trembling, of fear, and not of peace. Ask now, and see whether a man is giving birth? … [In other words, it's so bad and painful that it's like a man trying to give birth] …Why do I see every man with his hands on his loins, like a woman in labor, and all faces are turned into paleness? Alas! For that day is great, so that none is like it…" (vs 5-7).

We're now entering into it! How far into it are we? I don't know! If you look at what's happening in Australia and New Zealand, they're into it pretty deep. If you don't get the 'vacs' you're going to go to prison! 'oh, that's just a re-education center.' Well, that's prison!

"…it is even the time of Jacob's trouble; but he shall be saved out of it" (v 7).

God is eventually going to save us out of it! Deut. 28 helps us to understand that these things are going to come in the latter days.

(break 42:43)

Advertisement: As I have mentioned, you need the three books:

God's Plan for Mankind Revealed by His Sabbath and Holy Days is really most important. Because they don't keep the Sabbath an Holy Days, they don't know what God is doing. Ask a Protestant: What is God doing? They don't know!

Then The Appointed Times of Jesus the Messiah; you will be amazed as to what is in there. How God does everything right on schedule. He's never early and He's never late.

Then America and Britain: Two Nations that Changed the World; that's important to understand!

Since we're talking about Israel, we read the prophecies concerning the latter days for all the blessings. Now let's come to Deut. 31. This is just before they went into the 'promised land.'

Deuteronomy 31:23: "And he [Moses] commanded Joshua the son of Nun and said, 'Be strong and of a good courage, for you shall bring the children of Israel into the land which I swore to them, and I will be with you.' And it came to pass when Moses had made an end of writing the words of this Law in a book until they were finished" (vs 23-24). Remember, God always has it written down!

Verse 25: "Then Moses commanded the Levites who carried the Ark of the Covenant of the LORD, saying, 'Take this Book of the Law, and put it in the side of the Ark of the Covenant of the LORD your God, so that it may be there for a witness against you … [always there] …For I know…'" (25-27)

God knows! Think about it today, because we'll see what He says in a minute. It's important for us to understand. We can't understand the rest of the prophecies adequately until we understand about the 12 tribes of Israel and Jacob's trouble.

There have been many different times when Jacob has been in trouble down through history. But then there is the trouble that comes at the last time.

Verse 27: "For I know your rebellion and your stiff neck…."

You can even do that by being nice, just by saying, 'That's your opinion. I don't believe it! That's still, if it's against God, rebellion!'

"…Behold, while I am still alive with you today, you have been rebellious against the LORD. And how much more after my death?" (v 27).

Think about that in relationship as to what we have gone through as a church.

Verse 28: "Gather to me all the elders of your tribes, and your officers, so that I may speak these words in their ears, and call heaven and earth to record against them."

We'll go back and read part of Deut. 28[transcriber's correction] in a little bit, but he recorded all of the words first. Then he brought all the elders of Israel—the priests, Levites and the head of the tribes—and read it to them. That's important! We need to have it read to us today, as well.

Verse 29: "For I know that after my death you will become utterly corrupt…"

  • Are we utterly corrupt today?
  • Did that happen with Israel down through time and cycles?
  • Yes, indeed!

But there comes a cycle that is at the end time.

  • Are we corrupt today? Let's see a prophecy of that!

Let's see what God says. Remember that these prophecies are thousands of years old now. Down through time Israel has gone through the different cycles—that is the various tribes of Israel and especially Ephraim and Manasseh—the last 500 years. Notice what God uses as a witness, a witness that won't die. It is always there! And because it's always there, it can be used as a witness continuously!

Isaiah 1:2: "Hear, O heavens… [heaven is still there] …and give ear, O earth… [earth is still here] …for the LORD has spoken, 'I have reared and brought up children, but they have rebelled against Me.'"

Remember that Moses said that he knew their rebellion. It would be real interesting if someone could walk into a big Protestant church and get up in the pulpit and give them a message that they need to repent of Sunday-keeping and come back next week on Saturday. I imagine the deacons would be running up there to grab him and take him out. That's their rebellion! They have always had their idols, always had their gods, and yet, they claim the true God.

Just like this coming Christmas season. 'Let's put Christ back in Christmas.' He was never there! 'Let's have all these wonderful carols, beautiful music.' That's how Satan tricks people into accepting lies! They don't even know it! They have the Bible, but they don't read it. God says that 'you' re more stupid than an ox or a donkey.'

Verse 3: "The ox knows his owner, and the donkey his master's crib; but Israel does not know Me…"

You don't know God if you don't love Him and keep His commandments. You may flatter Him and give Him a little honor, but as soon as you're done with that you're out doing what you want to do.

"…My people do not understand" (v 3).

Here's a phrase that happened to the 10 tribes of Israel before they were taken captive by the Assyrians. This has happened to them down through history. Look at all the troubles they had after they had after they had the reformation and the translation of the Bible, of which William Tyndale was the main translator of it. Look at what they had because they had something very importantly wrong.

It's still that way today in Britain; the Crown is the head of the Church of England, not God! That's why they are so corrupt today. That's why they embraced Darwinism and worship their own intellect! In America we have virtually the same thing.

Verse 4: "Ah, sinful nation, a people burdened with iniquity…"

We'll see what that is! That's a lot and that's going on. We need to understand that that's happening.

Verse 5: "…You will revolt more and more…"

  • Will you continue down the same path that brought you all of this evil and wickedness?
  • Why are we so lawless?
  • Why is our whole educational system filled with satanism and humanism?

No one can learn about God, and then you go to the theology colleges—Protestants—and they teach their own doctrines. They misinterpret the Bible!

I'll tell you one experience I had when I was flying back from Oklahoma. There was this young man who just graduated from one of the theological schools and he was on his way back to San Jose. I heard him talking about the Lord and so forth. That's when we had the New Testament in its original order published, so I gave it to him.

I said, 'Here, this is something you might enjoy reading.' Well, about a month later I got the cover sent back to me ripped off with the most horrible denunciation you could imagine from someone who was taught to represent Christ, Who said, 'If you love Me, keep My commandments.' He said, 'This ought to be banned.'

See what you're up against, the rebellion that's there.

"…the whole head is sick, and the whole heart faint" (v 5).

If that doesn't describe Washington, D.C., and the President of the United States, and all of the idiots that work for him, I don't how much clearer the Bible can be!

Verse 5: "Why should you be stricken any more?…" What are we stricken with?

  • illegal immigration
  • drugs!
  • government overreach
  • sickness/disease

Now we're looking at financial ruin staring us right in the face! When that comes, there are going to be a lot of people who are going to wish that they had listened to the Word of God. It's going to make the crash 1929 look like a picnic. It's going to come!

Verse 6: "From the sole of the foot… [the least one in the community] …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."

Look at what's happening, and look at all of this.

Verse 7: "Your country is a desolation your cities are burned with fire.…"

California is about ready to run out of water. Why? It's one of the most sinful God rejecting states in America! It's filled with every evil under the sun! What are you going to do when there is no water? Better pray that God will have a little mercy and send some rain! Here in Hollister we had two days of rain in over a year, and that's after a dry year. Yet, they keep building more and more houses, more roads, more people.

"…Strangers devour your land right in your very presence…" (v 7).

Sound like the flood of immigrants coming in to the tune of 2-million in less than a year? Oh everybody come! But let's oppress the Americans who are evil racists! These things don't happen by accident!

"…and it is wasted, as overthrown by strangers" (v 7).

There's a glimmer of hope, but not much of a glimmer.

Verse 10: "Hear the Word of the LORD, rulers of Sodom; give ear to the Law of our God, people of Gomorrah."

What happened to those two cities and two others next to them that agreed with them? They were atomized by God's sulfur and brimstone!

What do you think God is going to do? If you don't think it's bad, do a little research on San Francisco. That will say it all! And it's coming to every city in America IF there's not repentance! That's part of prophecy! We are living in the flow of prophecy right now, except that the Lord has left us a small remnant, a Church.

Verse 11: "'To what purpose is the multitude of your sacrifices to Me?' says the LORD. … [flattering God] …'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. When you come to appear before Me, who has required this at your hand, to trample My courts?" (vs 11-12).

Today, to trample the Word of God! That's starts in the pulpits.

  • Who has required it? Not God!
  • Who said that the Law of God is done away? Not God!
  • Who has said that 'His grace is forever'? Not God!

That's what's happening!

Verse 13: "Bring no more vain sacrifices; incense is an abomination to Me—new moon and sabbath, the calling of assemblies—…"

That's their new moon, their calendar, the Romans calendar; their Sabbaths, which is Sunday.

Sidebar: When I was Pastor up in Salt Lake City, I was driving down this highway and here's a big billboard. Salt Lake City is the home of Mormons and they're very 'religious.' They are called The Church of the Latter Day Saints of Jesus Christ. This billboard said: Remember the Sabbath. I thought

Wow, are there people here that keep the Sabbath? Then I read the line below: See you in church on Sunday.

There is its, exactly as the Bible has said, your sabbaths!

Verse 14: "Your new moons and your appointed feasts My soul hates… [we're entering that time again] …they are a trouble to Me; I am weary to bear them. And when you spread forth your hands, I will hide My eyes from you; yea, when you make many prayers, I will not hear; your hands are full of blood" (vs 14-15).

It all lies at the feet of the religious leaders and the politicians, every bit of that blood! Will they repent?

Verse 16: "Wash yourselves, make yourselves clean; put away the evil of your doings from before My eyes; cease to do evil; learn to do good; seek judgment, reprove the oppressor. Judge the orphan; plead for the widow. Come now, and let us reason together,' says the LORD. 'Though your sins are as scarlet… [God always offers repentance; here it is] …they shall be as white as snow; though they are red like crimson, they shall be like wool…. [notice the caveat] …If… [it's up to each one] …you are willing and obedient, you shall eat the good of the land; but if… [there are the choices] …you refuse and rebel, you shall be devoured with the sword'; for the mouth of the LORD has spoken it" (vs 16-20).

When God says that He has spoken it, He means business! That's why so many things are wrong. I don't know how they are in other Churches of God; I hope you're all loving God and keeping His commandments and staying away from false doctrine. But you can't be embracing false doctrine and false prophecies and expect to be in right standing with God. That's up to you and your leaders. There are some leaders who have a lot of repenting to do in the Churches of God and to serve the brethren. Elders are here to teach the Word of God and serve the brethren, not themselves!

Remember what we said about the latter days. I want you to go online to Church at Home and I have read all of Deut. 28 separately, and it's on

I've also read it if you have your digital Bible, the audio is on CD, but I want you to know that if you read it, every single curse that God said would come upon us is there. Not one is missing. It is there! And in spite of all the doctors, in spite of all the money, in spite of all the heath care, it's there! Only God can take it away!

This is all a part of the flow of prophecy, because we kneed to know who we are, where we are, what is happening, and then we can look at the rest of the world.

Deuteronomy 28:36: "The LORD shall bring you, and your king, which you shall set over you, to a nation which neither you nor your fathers have known…."

Who is manipulating all the things behind the scenes with evil and determination? I'll give you one guess? China!

"…And there you shall serve other gods, wood and stone. And you shall become an astonishment…" (vs 36-37).

Isn't that true? Look at what's happening in some of the cities today. Is that not an astonishment? Look at all the homeless, drugs, all the people who are nothing but sex feigns How many are getting married today? I heard a man talking the other day and not one of his children or children's children are married, but all shacking-up! That' repeated over and over again because there's no knowledge of God.

"…a proverb…" (v 37).

They will say, 'Ha! Ha! Ha! You trusted in God. Where is your God?' Right there in front of you, the enemy that He has appointed over you!

"…and a byword among all nations where the LORD shall lead you. You shall carry much seed out into the field and shall gather little in, for the locust shall eat it.… [we've had that] …You shall plant vineyards and dress them, but shall neither drink the wine nor gather, for the worm shall eat them. You shall have olive trees throughout all your coasts, but you shall not anoint yourself with the oil, for your olive tree shall drop off its fruit" (vs 37-40).

Here's where we are; v 41: "You shall beget sons and daughters, but you shall not enjoy them… [Isn't that true? Look at what's happened, all the terrible things they go through] …for they shall go into captivity.… [that's going to happen] …All your trees and the fruit of your land the locust shall possess" (vs 41-42).

Pay attention to this one; v 43: "The stranger dwelling among you shall get up above you very high…"

That process is happening right now! I want you to understand it, because that fits right into the flow of prophecy.

"…and you shall come down very low.… [How is that going to happen?]: …He shall loan to you, and you shall not loan to him. He shall be the head, and you shall be the tail" (vs 43-44).

It's all set out there for us! What are people going to do? I don't know how far this message will go, even though it's recorded. I don't think there's a Protestant who will listen to it and repent, because they're all hard-hearted and evil and against God.

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."

The very thing that you hear in church when you go is that God loves you and you don't have to keep the Law. That is the greatest lie that there ever was! If you believe that you are deceived above all people, and God is going to bring upon you what He feels will be deserving!

Verse 46: "And they shall be on you for a sign and for a wonder, and on your seed… [your children] …forever."

God doesn't do this without cause. It says that 'the curse does not come without cause.' All these things leading up to it are the curses, which are the result of disobedience.

Verse 47: "Because you did not serve the LORD your God with joyfulness and with gladness of heart for the abundance of all things."

I want you to think about that the next time you go into the store. For the first time it's beginning to happen. There are empty shelves in the stores. People complain.

  • Were they thankful when they had everything?
  • Did they bow their heads and ask God's blessing on their meals?
  • Did they keep the Sabbath and Holy Days?


  • Was it everything and anything that wanted to do, because you had liberty and freedom?

For all the nations of Israel—we mentioned them earlier—your liberty and freedom will soon be gone! Now what are you going to do?

Verse 48: "Therefore, you shall serve your enemies, which the LORD shall send against you…"

  • Did God raise up the Assyrians to take the ten tribes of Israel captive? Yes, He did!
  • Did God raise up Nebuchadnezzar and the Babylonians to take down Judah and Jerusalem? Yes, He did!
    • in each case there were three invasions
    • in each case that all had a chance to repent
    • in each case they didn't repent

The last one to cause Jerusalem to be burned to the ground with the temple was King Zedekiah. He called Jeremiah in and he was wanting to know what would happen. Jeremiah said, 'You have to promise me you won't tell anyone.' Zedekiah said that he wouldn't; 'tell me what's going to happen.'

God said through Jeremiah said, 'If you surrender to Nebuchadnezzar and become a captive of him, I will not destroy the city.'

Think about the decision of one man! How much that meant! He said that he wouldn't destroy the city or the temple. He let Jeremiah go, and he didn't believe Jeremiah and Zedekiah and his sons tried to escape out the back way and get away from the Word of God.

But the Babylonian forces trapped them, captured them, and took them right to Nebuchadnezzar. What did Nebuchadnezzar do? He killed Zedekiah's sons! No heir to the throne in Jerusalem. And he gouged out the eyes of Zedekiah and took him captive into Babylon. Then God utterly destroyed Jerusalem and brought it to the ground.

Those are history lessons for us. IF we as a people, a nation, and we as members of the Church of God, IF we ourselves do not come back to God and follow His way, all of these things are going to happen. Not one word of God will fall to the ground not being fulfilled!

God offers repentance. So in the flow of prophecy, in the evil days we're living in, will you repent to God of your sins?

I can tell that group that's going to have this big revival January 8, 2022 in Florida, that unless you tell the people to repent of their sins and keep the commandments of God, keep the Sabbath and Holy Days of God, your whole call to save the nation will be futile!

  • I don't care how much television time you have
  • I don't care who you have their speaking

It will be futile!

We're down to the point that God means business! Likewise with the world! That has to be the message they need to hear. Will they do it?

When Jonah finally started preaching repentant that evil was going to come and God's judgment was coming upon the Assyrians, the king repented in sackcloth and ashes.

  • What did he say?
  • What was the message to all the people of Niniveh?

All of you don't eat anything or drink anything, not even any of the animals, and cease your evil!

God heard that! So, if you want your Jan. 8th meeting to be successful, you need to call everyone to cease their evil! Then those who really repent need to be baptized. No more sentimental emotionalism of lovey-dovy is going to work! Be baptized and serve God!

That's the only thing that will turn back the hand of God! Nothing else will do it! You can't say that you're good people. How are you good people when you reject what God says?

We're the greatest nation on earth! Who made you the greatest nation on earth? God Almighty! He's going to take it away! So, repentance, as He has said, will change the flow of history for a time!

In part two we will start with the book of Daniel and see the flow of history leading up to the end time and the days that we are living in.
