Greetings, everyone! Welcome to Sabbath services! It's the first time we have had a Sabbath in a long time that's on the first day of the new year on the Roman calendar. Here we are 2022, and prophecy is marching on. Things are developing and taking place.

Before we get started I'm going to mention again the books you need to get:

  • In-Depth Study: Daniel Revelation with CDs and a big chart

This will really help you get everything in line. The chart has everything laid out so you can see where all the major events take place during the last seven years.

  • The Appointed Times of Jesus the Messiah

To understand the timing of the book of Daniel.

  • Book: God's Plan for Mankind Revealed by His Sabbath and Holy Days

This is the key and you can't get along without it. It helps unlock all the prophecies of the end-time.

The things that we do, people are beginning to label as Judaism. It's not! Today, we're going to cover some things in the book of Revelation, because there are many things developing that are going to take place, are taking place and willtake place.

We're going to cover the mark of the beast today. You'll be surprised how far along that they are with bringing this in. There are five short video clips, and I hope to have one of the next Church at Home {} segments on the mark of the beast.-+

It's going to come as a wonderful thing and help solve all the problems. It's going to come as a wonderful thing and help solve all the problems.

Four Examples of the Mark of the Beast Technology {CLICK HERE time: 2:53-5:37 of video time can be seen on video message of this sermon @}

Video Clip #1: Click on Detroit, hosts Evrod Cassimy and Rhonda Walker

Host—Walker: First came the credit card swipe, then the tap and now just a wave of the hand can process a payment.

Host—Cassimy: The future just keeps coming; let's check in with Jason Carr. Jason, what the mark of the beast is going on?

Guest: Carr: Amazon is rolling out palm scanners at one of its Whole Food stores in Seattle. The technology called Amazon One allows shoppers to pay for the their purchases by holding their hands above a scanner. Before you can use it, you have to give the company your credit card information and palm print.

Amazon has been testing the system at its Amazon Go and Amazon Go grocery stores. The company plans to bring it to eight Seattle area Whole Foods stores in the coming months.

Video Clip #2: Hannes Sjoblad, Managing Director Dsruptive Subdermals: So, I have a chip implant in my arm and I have programmed the chip so that I have my Covid passport on the chip and the reason is that I always want to have it accessible. When I read my chip, I just swipe my phone on the chip and then unlock and it opens up. This is PDF, which is my Covid passport. And this means it is always accessible for me or for anyone else really who wants to read me. For example, if I go to the movies or go to a shopping center the people will be able to check my status even if I don't have my phone.

Video Clip #3: Microchips get under the skin of technophile Swedes. Ulrike Cesling has a chip implanted in her hand and can use it to unlock doors, and to get into her gym without a pass. Like many Swedes, she favors convenience over concerns about potential personal data violations. The chips can also be used to book train tickets.

Video Clip #4: Unnamed woman speaking: Look at your 'M' closely, there's a gap right here in the letter 'M' it's never connected. So, you go into Hebrew, the letter 'vob' is also the number six—short top, long tail, short top, long tail. You could have here in Hebrews '666' on the can.

But my interest is the word --- Here is the message: antichrist 666 in Hebrew and then the Bible talks about the beast in Revelation (inaudible) Look at (inaudible) You see these 'M's everywhere (inaudible).

There's another agenda here. If God can use people, so can Satan. (Fred is reading this next portion): We live in an age where everything is being modified and changed to a adapt and prepare the way for the revelation of the antichrist!

Absolutely true!

  • What do you need to have the mark of the beast work? A digital identification of every person in the world! They're busy doing that right now.
  • Do you have Social Security number?
  • Is it digitized? Yes, it is in Washington, D.C.!
  • When will the two witnesses come on the scene?
  • When will part of the Church go to the place of safety?

We saw in part 4 of this series that the second seal takes away peace (Rev. 6). There has to be time of peace and there has to be an agreement (Dan. 9). That agreement is broken in the middle of the seven-year period, or at three and a half years!

What we're going to find out is that three and a half years is not simultaneously laid over each other; they come close. It's expressed three ways:

  • 1260 days
  • times, time and half a time
  • 42 months

One of the things that led me years ago that ended up in the series of Daniel/Revelation was the questions:

  • What's the difference between 1260 days and 3-1/2 years?
  • Do they start at the same time?
  • Do they end at the same time?
  • Where is the beginning?
  • Where is the end?

I started out with the 1260 days!

Revelation 12:13: "And when the dragon saw that he was cast down to the earth, he persecuted the woman who had brought forth the man-Child.

Remember that Satan is the power behind all of this. Let's get that straight in our mind. Satan is behind all of it. When anybody get out of line, the establishment elite have a way of killing them.

Remember Jeffery Epstein? All the elite on His debauched island? There's a picture someplace on line with Pres. Bill Clinton and Chief Justice John Roberts in the pool together on Epstein Island!

  • How far do the tentacles of Satan reach?
  • How far do the tentacles of those who own the world reach?
  • Into everything!

Luke 4—When Jesus was tempted by Satan and was asked to command the stone to turn to bread:

Luke 4:4: "But Jesus answered him, saying, 'It is written, "Man shall not live by bread alone, but by every Word of God."'"

What as the only Word of God at that time? The Old Testament!

Verse 5: "Then the devil led Him up into a high mountain and showed Him all the kingdoms of the world in a moment of time. And the devil said to Him…" (vs 5-6).

Never forget this verse. Those who think they can outdo the elite are wrong! They may frustrate them; they may get rid of some of them, but they can never overcome them!

"…'I will give You all this authority and the glory of them all… [all their wealth, everything, control over them] …for it has been delivered to me, and I… [he has to get permission from God first] … give it to whomever I desire'" (v 6).

What is the requirement? In order to become part of the elite the devil must own your soul!

Verse 7: "Therefore, if You will worship me… [that's what these people do] …in my presence… [so he will come and appear to them] …all things shall be Yours.' But Jesus answered and said to him, 'Get behind Me, Satan; for it is written… [Jesus is not talking to Satan here, He's talking to Himself and every human being] …"You shall worship the Lord your God, and Him only shall you serve"' (vs 7-8). That's who's behind all of this!

Here is the thing that breaks the peace; Revelation 12:7: "And there was war in heaven; Michael and his angels warred against the dragon, and the dragon and his angels warred. But they did not prevail, neither was their place found any more in heaven" (vs 7-8).

Satan can come up to God, right before Him, and talk to Him. He has to get permission to do everything that he does (book of Job). The major events taking place in the world today, Satan is behind them. When they happen he has permission from God. That's why it's important.

Sidebar: Any group that gets close to causing them a lot of problems, they will eliminate, subvert, infiltrate. Now you know what happened to WCG (Worldwide Church of God).

Verse 9: "And the great dragon was cast out, the ancient serpent who is called the Devil and Satan, who is deceiving the whole world…"

We covered that, read that, memorized that! But the whole world means the whole world! If he can cause confusion within the Churches of God by sending false doctrine, false interpretation of Revelation and prophecy, he's going to do it! Know this: not all the subversives that were in Worldwide are out of the scattered Churches of God! That's why we have to prove all things!

"…he was cast down to the earth, and his angels were cast down with him. And I heard a great voice in heaven say, 'Now has come the salvation and the power and the Kingdom of our God, and the authority of His Christ because the accuser of our brethren has been cast down, who accuses them day and night before our God'" (vs 9-10).

Sidebar: That's why it's important that we repent every day. What's the first Feast we keep? The Passover for the forgiveness of sin! The next one is Unleavened Bread so that we learn to get sin out of our lives, out of our heart and out of our mind with God's Spirit.

When we do that daily… What is the model prayer? Forgive us our sins as we forgive those who sin against us! You don't want to give Satan a little bit of space! He's not going to come with something that is absolutely wicked. He's going to come with something that seems really right.

Verse 11: "But they overcame him through the blood of the Lamb… [through repentance] …and through the word of their testimony… [what they say, preach, do] …and they loved not their lives unto death…. [because they all know about the resurrection] …Therefore, rejoice you heavens and those who dwell in Them. Woe to those who inhabit the earth and the sea! For the Devil has come down to you, having great wrath because he knows that he has only a short time.' And when the dragon saw that he was cast down to the earth, he persecuted the woman who had brought forth the man-Child" (vs 11-13).

There's going to be this war in heaven. We don't know:

  • what it's going to be like
  • how many human beings will be up there
  • how many robots will be up there.

But that's where it's going to start! Satan is going to be right there using these things to attack God. But they're all cast down. He knows he has a short time, so he comes after the Church. That war has to happen, and persecution, which will lead to martyrdom. We know pretty close when that's going to happen!

Verse 14: "And two wings of a great eagle were given to the woman, so that she might fly to her place in the wilderness, where she is nourished for a time, and times, and half a time… [3-1/2 years (tie in Daniel)] …from the face of the serpent."

{Note our In-Depth study: The Rapture Hoax} Millions are not taken away. What are all of those Protestants going to think when this happens and they say, 'I'm still on the earth! I heard that some people were taken,' but they weren't.

Some in the Church of God will be taken to a place of safety because of what happens afterward. We can come pretty close to figuring just about when this will be.

Verse 15: "And the serpent cast water out of his mouth as a river, so that he might cause her to be carried away by the flood. But the earth helped the woman, and the earth opened its mouth, and swallowed up the river that the dragon had cast out of his mouth. Then the dragon was furious with the woman and went to make war… [this is when the martyrdom begins] …with the rest of her seed, who keep the commandments of God and have the testimony of Jesus Christ" (vs 15-17).

How close are we to this? We don't know! But there is a generational change and shift happening everywhere in the world. I remember one man telling me that you will know when you're old: When you see every policeman and he looks like a child! Then you will know you're old.

They come back to make war. Let's see how that is; let's see if we can piece this together and see when it may happen.

When does times, time and half a time come to an end for those who are in the place of safety? Resurrection! So, if you count back three and a half years—it's on the chart, and you will see that the key of that is Pentecost resurrection—you come to a point just after the Feast of Tabernacles!

Revelation 11:1: "Then the angel gave me a measuring rod like a staff, saying, 'Arise and measure the Temple of God, and the altar, and those who worship in it.'"

Even some Churches of God say that 'we don't know if there's going to be a read temple or a spiritual temple, or any temple.' We used to hear them say that if they declare the ground 'Holy' they can offer their sacrifices there.

After centuries in the Diaspora, do you think that the Jews are going to settle for that? No way! It's exactly what it says here.

  • the temple will be built
  • the temple will be operating
  • sacrifices will be given

Verse 2: "But leave out the court that is within the temple area, and do not measure it because it has been given up to the Gentiles; and they shall trample upon the Holy city for forty-two months." Another way of 3-1/2 years! But evil comes in months—42 months

Verse 3: "And I will give power to My two witnesses, and they shall prophesy a thousand two hundred and sixty days, clothed in sackcloth."

  • When does it end? At the resurrection!
  • How many days were they dead on the streets of Jerusalem? 3-1/2!

So, you 1263-1/2 days! Count backward from Pentecost and you come to the time just after those in the Church who go to a place of safety are taken. So, the two witnesses come on then for 1260 days.

What's going to happen at the same time that the beast goes after the woman, the Church? Two witnesses come on the scene right away! What else is going to happen? Rev. 14; read it carefully!

Revelation 14:6: "And I saw another [#1]angel flying in the midst of heaven, having the everlasting Gospel to proclaim to those who dwell on the earth, and to every nation and tribe and language and people."

This is going to be a tremendous thing! Here's a final warning! When does this take place? I think it's fair to say, simultaneously when the two witnesses start! This will be a dramatic thing from God. The two witnesses will come on the scene, the angel in heaven will come. In fact, there will be three angels. We will see why they have to come at that time. "…to every nation and tribe and language and people." Is that not the domain of the Beast Power? All nations? Yes, it is!

Verse 7: "Saying with a loud voice, 'Fear God, and give glory to Him, because the hour of His judgment has come; and worship Him Who made the heaven, and the earth, and the sea, and the fountains of waters.' [#2]Then another angel followed… [here's the warning] …saying, 'The great city Babylon is fallen… [meaning it's in the process of falling, not done] …is fallen, because of the wine of the wrath of her fornication, which she has given all nations to drink.' And a [#3]third angel followed them, saying with a loud voice, 'If anyone worships the beast and his image, and receives the mark in his forehead or in his hand, he shall also drink of the wine of the wrath of God, which is mixed undiluted in the cup of His wrath; and he shall be tormented in fire and brimstone in the sight of the Holy angels, and of the Lamb'" (vs 7-10).

When does that happen? The first death for those who fight against Christ and the saints when we return!

Verse 11: "And the smoke of their torment ascends into the ages of eternity; and those who worship the beast and his image, and all who receive the mark of his name, have no rest day and night."

Once that is enacted it's going to be something! This is a process over the three and a half years. Not just instantly all at once.

Verse 12: "Here is the patience of the saints; here are the ones who keep the commandments of God and the faith of Jesus."

Revelation 12:17: "Then the dragon was furious with the woman and went to make war with the rest of her seed, who keep the commandments of God and have the testimony of Jesus Christ."

This is at the beginning of the 1260 days, and it ends with the Pentecost resurrection.


  • When do all the prophecies of the 1260 days for the two witnesses and those who are in a place of safety end? The resurrection!
  • When is the resurrection? Pentecost!

Therefore, the things that start with the Beast, start at a later time. Why?

The only way you can understand when it starts, is understanding when it's finished! You count backwards! You can't say that it's going to start 'here'; you don't know when it's going to start. But you know when it ends. If you know when it ends, count backwards.

When do the beast and his armies, and the false prophet come to an end? When the saints and Christ return to the earth (Rev. 19). The angels are going to take the beast and the false prophet and throw them into the Lake of Fire. That ends the 42 months. So, you count backward 42 months. You see when everything breaks loose.

Guess what the chart shows? Right near the Passover time when the Jews will be offering their Passover lambs! That's when the beast receives the deadly wound. It's going to be like all of those who were against the Apostle Paul. He came to Jerusalem and they had all these men ready to kill him, taking an oath and fasting until he was dead.

But God rescued him! What do you think the Jews are going to do after they had temple built and after they start the sacrifices, here the 'man of sin, the son of perdition' comes into the temple and stops the sacrifice and goes into the Holy place saying that he is 'God.'

Don't you think that every able-bodied Jew is going to be out to kill him? They will wound him to death! But he will be revived! When he's revived, the world will wonder at the beast! That's when his 42 months begins. It says that he will continue 42 months (Rev. 13).

That's how you understand when it begins, and when it ends. That's why you need this In-Depth Study with chart: Daniel/Revelation. In trying to understand it, I asked:

  • What's the difference between 1260 days, 3-1/2 years, and 42 months?
  • How does God count time?
  • Does He use the Roman calendar? No! He uses His calendar: the Sacred Hebrew Calendar!

On the chart you have the months and the years!

The end is the end when Christ and the saints are on the earth. The Beast and false prophet are thrown into the Lake of Fire, which is the end of everything to do with man's civilization and Satan the devil on this earth. Satan along with all the demons is put into the abyss (Rev. 20).

Then I took the Calculated Hebrew Calendar, because that's what God uses to calculate time. He uses a 19-year time-cycle. There are leap years and common years. The leap years have 30 days more in them than the common years. I've got it all on the chart.

So, the end is the end! A lot of people say that the Jubilee begins at that time. No it does not, because everybody is going to have to have food to live. God is not going to feed them manna for the first year. So, you have to look at the last year when all of these hellish things are taking place. That is probably (speculation) a leap year, so it would have an extra 30 days.

Look at the chart and start at the end and go back. I have all the months listed out 29/30. So, here's what we have:

at the beginning of the seven years—common year—and that is year 13 in a 19-year time-cycle; 13 is the number of rebellion

2-Thessalonians 2:1: "Now, we beseech you, brethren, concerning the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ and our gathering together to Him, that you not be quickly shaken in mind, nor be troubled—neither by spirit, nor by word, nor by epistle, as if from us, saying that the day of Christ is present. Do not let anyone deceive you by any means because that day will not come unless the apostasy shall come first… [When does that com?] …and the man of sin shall be revealed—the son of perdition" (vs 1-3).

When does that apostasy come to its very fullest? When the antichrist goes into the temple and says that he's 'God'!

What is and is Not the Mark of the Beast

There are still some Churches of God that say the mark of the beast is Sunday-keeping. That is old Church of God Seventh-Day doctrine! That's what Worldwide taught when I was first baptize in 1960; some of them still teach it. Why can Sunday not be the mark of the beast?

Revelation 13:14: "And he deceives those who dwell on the earth by means of the wonders that were given to him to perform in the sight of the beast, saying to those who dwell on the earth that they should make an image for the beast, which had the wound by the sword, yet, was alive."

That's going to be their celebration when he comes back to life! They're going to say that 'this is God manifested in the flesh; make an image to him. We'll make a big one here' and the false prophet will make him speak!

Verse 15: "And he was given power to give life to the image of the beast, so that the image of the beast also could speak; and he causes everyone who will not worship the image of the beast to be killed. And he causes all, the small and the great, and the rich and the poor, and the free and the bond, to receive a mark in their right hands, or in their foreheads so that no one may have the ability to buy and sell…" (vs 15-17).

Everybody here has credit cards. I've had trouble with billing on one of mine so I had to cancel it. What I was trying to buy, it kept being rejected. So, I canceled it. But:

  • What if they canceled all your credit cards?
  • What are you going to do?

It is literally to buy and sell!

I'm going to have short videos posted online that will show you how close they are to doing it. Maybe some 12 years ago I gave a message The Mark of the Beast is Here, and that was when they first came out with Digital Angel. Well, they have improved it! They have made it better.

Think about this: they will be able to reduce crime, thievery, criminal behavior, because they will be able to know where everyone is at all times.

The small country of Estonia is the most digitized country in the world. But just across the Baltic Sea in Sweden, they are actually putting in the chip right there on the right hand. Everybody thinks it's wonderful!

  • you get up in the morning, you get dressed to go to work
  • you wave your hand on the car and it unlocks
  • you get in the car and it starts because it's keyed to your right hand
  • you go to work, wave your hand and the door opens
  • you go to your desk, wave your hand and it unlocks your desk
    • no keys
    • no cards

Nobody can steal it unless they chop off your hand!

They have another one, and Amazon is work on this, trying to get this into all Amazon transactions and Whole Foods, because they own Whole Foods. It is to use the palm of your handprint, have it on file, and you come up to pay for the stuff you're going to buy and just put your palm over the device and it reads your palm.

This is not the mark of the breast, but the last thing before it! They likewise have it for the eye, but when it gets in your hand or in your forehead, you've gone too far!

I think that some of those poor people who attend these Churches of God, who believe that the mark of the beast is Sunday, will be told it's okay, because this just for merchandizing. Just like they told them that this vaccine (for Covid) is sent from God! It was, the god of this world, Satan the devil!

I don't know how many cards you have, but you cannot buy and you cannot sell, and that is the foundation of everything today. It has nothing to do with Sunday-keeping!

"…so that no one may have the ability to buy and sell unless he has the mark, or the name of the beast, or the number of his name" (v 17).

How all of that is going to work on another one of the clips that we will show that happens in some of these small stores. They have gangs coming around—because you can take (steal) $900 worth of merchandize and they can't arrest you—talk about insanity! What is that for?

So, the gangs are really smart, they run to Home Depot and get $890 worth of crowbars, hammers, different things like that, and they can't arrest them. They run down to the jewelry center of main street and go in start smashing the counters and take all the expensive jewelry.

All the merchants are saying, 'We need something to stop this.' Likewise with these small stop and go stores where you buy gas and go in and get something to drink or eat. Now these people come in and take water, beer, candy, jerky and stuff it all in their pockets and walk out.

Now to stop that they have invented special locked and thick glass or plastic so you can't break it. You can't open the door because there's no handle. You can't smash it in to take anything out. You pay at the counter and then they give you a pass and you wave it front of the door and it opens and get what you want.

They can key that to the mark in your hand and you go up to the door and it opens. You can't buy anything without it. This is going to be something.

Video Clip #5: Infrared Security Scanning Shelves{CLICK HERE time: 52:50-53:21}

They look like normal shelves, but they're not normal shelves. Every single one of them has infrared scanning sensors for your forehead. Mark of the beast in your right hand or forehead. Speak to it; it sees you. They're made out of super-thick metal.

If you don't have the mark, you won't be able to buy or sell unless you scan your hand on this. Then it's going to open for you. Then it will let you get whatever you need.

Think about that!

Everything you have in your house, where you live, what you wear, what you eat, what you drive, you all need money. What happens when the day comes that they are outlawing all money and you must have the mark? You might say that you have a lot of food stored up. All right, how long is that going to last you?

  • How much gas do you have in your car?
  • How far can you go?

All of those things will come home like an atomic bomb in everyone's life. But now they have the ability to do it! Think about what they must have thought when John wrote this in Revelation. How can that be? Or even 200 years ago? 100 years ago? Today, we're there!

Let's look at three things of this world's system:

Revelation 17:5: "And across her forehead a name was written… [Where can the mark be? In the forehead!] …MYSTERY, [#1]BABYLON THE GREAT, THE [#2]MOTHER OF THE HARLOTS AND OF THE [#3]ABOMINATIONS OF THE EARTH."

Revelation 18:3: "Because [#1]all nations have drunk of the wine of the fury of her fornication… [all of her wickedness] …and [#2]the kings of the earth have committed fornication with her, and [#3]the merchantsof the earth have become rich through the power of her luxury."

When you watch Who Owns the World? {truthofGod,org}video, that will blow you away! It's about an hour long. At the end, the one who presents it says, 'We have the solution.' Everybody get together and resist it.' No! that's not the solution! The solution is Christ!

The  human way to try and solve human and satanic problems, you cannot do without God! So, even the solution that men put forth won't work, because God is left out!

Verse 4: "And I heard another voice from heaven, saying, [#1]'Come out of her, My people, so that you [#2]do not take part in her sins, and that you [#3]do not receive of her plagues.'" What we are to do!

Rev. 20 is a very short chapter on how everything is going to be in the plan of God than anything else.

Revelation 20:4: "And I saw thrones; and they that sat upon them, and judgment was given to them; and I saw the souls of those who had been beheaded [#1]for the testimony of Jesus, and [#2]for the Word of God, and [#3]those who did not worship the beast or his image, and [#4]did not receive the mark in their foreheads or in their hands; and they lived and reigned with Christ a thousand years."

Concerning the saints; Revelation 3:11: "Behold, I am coming quickly; hold fast that which you have so that no one may take away your crown."

Right now we have more comfort, more leisure, more things than at any time in the history of the world. There are going to be plenty of things coming along to try and steal our crowns!

Verse 12: "[#1]The one who overcomes will [#2]I make a pillar in the Temple of My God, and [#3]he shall not go out anymore; and [#4]I will write upon him the name of My God and the name of the city of My God, the New Jerusalem, which will come down out of heaven from My God; and [#5]I will write upon him My new name."

So you have five things there, which is the number of grace!

Let's look at the wheat and the tares. This shows you that Satan has his active servants doing his work all the time.

Matthew 13:24: "And He put another parable before them, saying, 'The Kingdom of Heaven is compared to a man who was sowing good seed in his field; but while men were sleeping…'" (vs 24-25).

Remember Laodicea, they were poor, blind and naked! 

"…his enemy came…" (v 25). Whenever you let your guard down, who is going to be there?

"…and sowed tares among the wheat, and went away. Now, when the blades sprouted and produced fruit, then the tares also appeared" (vs 25-26).

When they're growing they look alike; you can't tell the difference. That's what happened in Worldwide; there were a lot of tares! But they looked like the real thing!

Verse 27: "And the servants came to the master of the house and said to him 'Sir, did you not sow good seed in your field? Then where did these tares come from?'"

How did that happen? All of those who supposedly came from the Protestant side (these are ones who were in Worldwide Church of God), they went to school at the University of Azusa, which was a Protestant school to train ministers from Protestant Churches.

Verse 28: "And he said to them, 'A man who is an enemy has done this.' Then the servants said to him, 'Do you want us to go out and gather them?'  But he said, 'No, lest while you are gathering the tares, you also uproot the wheat with them. Allow both to grow together until the harvest and at the time of the harvest, I will say to the reapers, "Gather the tares first, and bind them into bundles to burn them; but gather the wheat into my granary"'" (vs 28-30).

Isn't that interesting? You look at it and think that the tares are going to be gathered and burned before the saints are resurrected. That's only going to happen with the armies,  the beast and the false prophet. "…and bind them into bundles to burn them…" He doesn't say and to burn! It says, "…to burn…"

Why? Because all the wicked have to die together in the second death. The resurrection of the saints and the burning of the tares do not occur simultaneously, or one after the other.

  • When are all the wicked burned? After the Last Great Day! Or is the last part of the Last Great Day. They're held in bundles.
  • What do you do with bundles? You store them until you're ready to do something with them!

So, we have two things!

  • resurrection takes place on Pentecost
  • the burning of the wicked takes place after the 1,000 years and the 100 years!

That's when they're all burned together! What are bundles?

Hebrews 12:22: "But you have come to Mount Sion… [that what we come to when we pray] …and to the city of the living God, heavenly Jerusalem; and to an innumerable company of angels."

When you pray, think about that! The multitude of angels all there praising God, doing His will.

Verse 23: "To the joyous festival gathering; and to the Church of the Firstborn, registered in the Book of Life in heaven; and to God, the Judge of all, and to the spirits of the just who have been perfected."

  • Would you not say that these are gathered together in one place?
  • Not bundled, but gathered together? Yes!
  • What about the spirits of the wicked? They're bundled together for the day of burning!

But the day of burning doesn't occur until after the Millennium and the 100-year period!

Sometimes you read things and they seem simultaneous, but they're not, because it happens at a different time.

Matthew 13:36: "And after dismissing the multitude, Jesus went into the house. Then His disciples came to Him, saying, 'Explain to us the parable of the tares of the field.' And He answered and said to them, 'The One Who sows the good seed is the Son of man; and the field is the world; and the good seed, these are the children of the Kingdom; but the tares are the children of the wicked one'" (vs 36-38).

That tells it very clearly. That's why those who are faithful will really be few, even among the Churches of God. In some of these Churches of God:

  • How many tares are still there?
  • That transferred over when Worldwide split up?

They're still there!

  • How do you know them?
  • Do they love God?
  • Do they believe His Word?
  • Do they live by every Word of God?


  • Are they political?

That was the hallmark of the last days of Worldwide: political! Just because there are a few that are true, don't think you need numbers. What comes with numbers? Tares!

Verse 39: "Now, the enemy who sowed them is the devil; and the harvest is the end of the age, and the reapers are the angels. Therefore, as the tares are gathered and consumed in the fire, so shall it be in the end of this age. The Son of man shall send forth His angels, and they shall gather out of His Kingdom all the offenders and those who are practicing lawlessness; and they shall cast them into the furnace of fire; there shall be weeping and gnashing of teeth" (vs 39-42).

Verse 43: "Then shall the righteous shine forth as the sun in the Kingdom of their Father. The one who has ears to hear, let him hear" (vs 43-44).

What you find in many of these things is that the knowledge of the Holy Days, and especially Rev. 20 helps you understand when these things will take place, even though it appears they are virtually simultaneous.

We've covered a lot of things today! The devices that are coming out now that are going to pave the way for the mark of the beast. How far down the road they are, we don't know. But it's going to be pervasive. It will be everywhere, because it says all, small and great, rich and poor, free and bond!

We need to be strong and realized that these days are coming!
