The tribulation age of 42 is coming. Are you ready and prepared to face the terrible and tragic changes ahead? No matter where you live on the face of the earth, there is no hiding place—although, provided by your Creator, there is a way of escape. Are you spiritually in touch enough to know what the Eternal has in store? You should know, you were designed specifically to make a grand impact in the lives of others, a significant impact this side of the kingdom. Or are you in the dark because of your spiritual inaction? Perhaps you‘ve become too much a part of the problem to be of any benefit to the solution. Words to a poetic and profound song are: “Slip sliding away, slip sliding away, You know the nearer your destination, the more you slip sliding away... God only knows, God makes his plan, The information is unavailable to the mortal man, We‟re working our jobs, collect our pay, Believe we‟re gliding down the highway, when in fact we‟re slip sliding away…” There‘s an excellent chance you‘ve heard these song lyrics hundreds of times if you‘re 42 or older. The lyrics are by Simon and Garfunkel. The reason these words are so profound and relevant for everyone today is because it is exactly what every man, woman, and child are doing all over the face of the earth. Most of mankind believes they‘re really moving along, progressing every day, and gliding down the highway—when in fact we‘re slip-sliding away. That‘s right! Going nowhere, sadly, in many cases, going backwards. Just think about it. You go to the health club, perhaps you‘re striving to go every

day you can. You need to go no less than three times a week to have any significant result that you can feel or see. Perhaps you‘ve been working out, depending on your age, for at least 10 to 20 years. I don‘t want to startle or frighten anyone, but do your best to think back on how you looked 10 to 20 years ago. Carefully and honestly give your looks a progressive analysis from 1 to 10—10 being what you looked like 10 to 20 years ago. How would you rate yourself today in comparison? I‘m not trying to depress you, but I hope you understand, we shouldn‘t deceive ourselves. It is not a question of becoming older, or not being able to perform physically with limitations you have at your current age. But if you exercised as you should, at least 3 times a week for at least 6 months, today you would be in good shape. My point is, there is very little that mankind maintains good in his life. The things we know and understand that would benefit us physically, our carnal human nature has no desire to maintain. It doesn‘t matter what scenarios you use. I based this point on maintaining our physical health because it‘s a struggle multiple millions around the world face; however, it is not the physical failures that cause the most severe damage to our lives, it is the spiritual failures that ultimately take life from us. All mankind must develop and maintain a divine spiritual relationship with the Creator. If this is not one of your primary goals in life, you are simply wasting your life. Precious time continues to tick away and is lost forever because we‘re not properly connected to our Creator. We must stop ne-

glecting, taking for granted the spiritual life-line the Creator has given. We selfishly misuse and abuse our God-given lifeline, carnally calling out only when we‘re in trouble or extreme need. No, a constant spiritual connection must be maintained and updated for a smooth and effective transmission from the Creator to you, His creation. This simple spiritual connection takes place as you read the Almighty's Word and do what it says, constantly beseeching Him for understanding, guidance and direction. It is not possible to fulfill the calling the Creator has given you specifically to fulfill if that connection is frequently damaged or severed because of sin. If you‘re not fulfilling your calling, you‘re wasting precious time, fumbling in the dark. False successful progress reports have deceived you; yes, you‘re working your jobs, collecting your pay, believing you‘re gliding down the highway, when in fact you‘re slip sliding away.

Qualifier Note
Please understand. There are probably some things where we may slightly disagree, and there may be other issues where our perspectives seem to be a mile apart. But I beg of you, I am more than sure there are a great many subjects and issues where we do agree wholeheartedly. In many circumstances, point by point, we may be in complete harmony with one another. If there is a point where you don‘t understand or simply flat out disagree with me, that in no way means we can‘t share sweet, delicious ww1 fellowship together. People foolishly become too stubborn, polarized ice-capped statues, physically unable and spiritually inept to move from their frozen solid, self-centered, self-imposed positions. Let that not be the case between you and me. On the other hand, I don‘t pay dues to the global club of political correctness. I am extremely sick and tired, worn out from hearing that empty platitude when people don‘t agree. They are fond of saying, ―Well, we will agree to disagree.‖ I‘m sorry, but in my mind, that sounds like absolute ww2 hollow nonsense, silly, sterilized, stale political correctness.

Then, I will simply quote

the words from the Almighty: ―Let the wicked remain wicked.‖ No, forgive me, I‘m just having a litww3 tle fun.

therefore, when we agree, let us be happy. When we disagree, let us not be distraught. Whether we are family, ww4 friends, associates, or complete strangers, Bitterness makes more evil disciples for the Evil One and ensnares those separated from their Eternal Creator. Knowing and respecting each other—whether loved ones or enemies—as a potential son or daughter of God, transports us up the path of righteousness and maintains the integrity God intends us to manifest.

blocked because they forgot to wash it that morning. The Eternal has designed one of the ears to hear and another ear to listen or to hearken.‖ One ear is to hear what‘s being said, the other is to hearken or internalize what‘s being said. This hearkening process translates meaning to what you‘ve heard and helps you to drink in a more detailed picture of what‘s been said. As we all practice this spiritual understanding, we can experience a small percentage of what Christ was perfectly able to do on a daily basis when He walked the earth. The Almighty not only had the excellent understanding of what was said, He knew why they said it; He understood their very thoughts and the motives behind the thoughts.

A Universal Understanding of 42
The number 42 does have a universal understanding and significance regarding our lives, our entire world, and what will happen before the ultimate setup of the kingdom of God when Christ returns to the earth and rules as King of Kings and Lord of Lords. Some things set by the number 42 may seem to be inconsequential; however, a great many things founded in the number 42 are quite fundamental, even spiritually profound. 1) The left arm of the Statue of Liberty is 42 feet long. 2) The angle at which light reflects off of water to create a rainbow is 42 degrees. 3) The Torah is broken into columns, each of which always has 42 lines of Hebrew. 4) The city of Jerusalem covers an area of 42 square miles. 5) The first book printed on the Gutenberg press was a Bible with 42 lines on each page. 6) 2 Kings 2:24 - ―...Then two bears came out of the woods and mauled forty-two of the youths.‖ 7) Numbers 35:6 - ―Six of the towns you give the Levites will be cities of refuge, to which a person who has killed someone may flee. In addition, give them forty-two other towns.‖ 8) Matthew 1:17 ―Thus there were fourteen generations in all from Abraham to David, fourteen from David to the exile to Babylon, and fourteen from the exile to the Christ.‖ (Equals forty-two generations to Christ) 9) Revelation 11:2 - ―They will trample on the holy city for 42 months.‖ 10) Revelation 12:6 - ―The woman fled into the desert to a place prepared for her by God, where she might be taken care of for 1,260 days.‖ (Which equals forty-two months) 11) Revelation 13:5 - ―The beast was given a mouth to utter proud words and blasphemies and to

exercise his authority for forty-two months.‖ 12) In 1991, Desert Storm, the first war America fought with Iraq, 42 days after the first bomb fell, the country of Kuwait was liberated. The age of 42 is a time of trial and testing. The number of 42 can be used as a gauge, a marker, a milestone of success and failures within our lives. There is a remarkable documentary which chronicled children from the age of seven until they reached the age of 42. The film is called .

Every seven years we change; from the age of 7 to the age of 14 there is a significant change. As we move up in age, 7 more years to 21, 7 more to 28, 7 again to 35 up to the tribulation age of 42, 6 major metamorphoses have taken shape in our lives. The age of 42 should be more than enough time to be spiritually awakened, clicking on all the spiritual cylinders given to us by the Creator. Sadly, time is running out. Unfortunately our country and the entire world have been rapidly moving into the tribulation age of 42. Very little time is left. Next are celebrities who have reached the age of 42 during the year of 2006, the age of the author, and this book‘s beginning drafts.

What Should You Do Before The Tribulation Age of 42 Book Format & Layout Explanation
A question I‘m frequently asked is, why do I use so many films, documentaries, news clips, and other graphics as sources in the book. The answer is simple: many people around the world can relate to everyday events that happen in our lives. I reference documentaries, films, and news clips to drive home important points of understanding, to explain where our world is headed. I back up my understanding with what is rarely used in society—the Word of God. The Word of God is the final word, the final explanation, to what will ultimately take place. Documentaries, movies, and world news events are brought in as familiar references to give the reader current examples which are outlined within God‘s Word. Actually, questions are often answered by those many movies and films we see on a regular basis. A famous line from the film , is asking the actor Mack (played by Kevin Kline) this question: ―Have you ever seen a movie called ?‖ Mack said no. Davis (played by Steve Martin), stated, ―That‘s part of your problem, you know, you haven‘t seen enough movies. All of life‘s riddles are answered in the movies.‖ The truth is, we‘ve all seen enough movies. But his point is valid. Even in the absence of serious study of God‘s Word—God has not left the world ignorant. He blesses these films to give us answers to many questions we have in life.

Spiritual Living Is Everything
Well, this is now my 42nd year; 42 years of being on the earth. Unfortunately, at this point in time of my life, I feel I have not accomplished much, nevertheless, as the saying goes, ―God is not finished with me yet.‖ The Eternal has blessed me to still be alive. That‘s what‘s important because

ww6

And if you have made many mistakes, that is many in the billions, countless blunders that were committed by your hands, since you‘re still alive, there is still hope. Bless yourself by repenting and cleaning up your mess. You can turn around from going the wrong way and start going the right way. All hope is not lost.
ww7

As the Creator says in His Word, Verse 4 ―Anyone who is among the living has hope—even a live dog is better off than a dead lion!‖ Ecclesiastes 9:4; New International Version. There is no substitute; there is nothing on the earth that can compare with the gift of being alive. It doesn‘t matter whether you are rich or poor, whether you are riding high on the tops of the clouds with everything going your way and you seem to do no wrong, or if it is the very opposite and depression has thrust you deep down into the depths of the earth where you are imprisoned in a dark, gloomy dungeon and things seem to never go your

way. Again, being alive makes all the difference. The Eternal points out many benefits within His Word to back up this fact, Verse 5 ―For the living know that they will die, but the dead know nothing; they have no further reward, and even the memory of them is forgotten.‖ Verse 6 ―Their love, their hate, and their jealousy have long since vanished; never again will they have a part in anything that happens under the sun.‖ Ecclesiastes 9:5-6; New International Version. This is one of the fundamental understandings that is lost on those who threaten to commit suicide and certainly lost on those who succeed. This success in death should not be ww8 confused with anything good.

When anyone is suffering in life, only lawful solutions ww9 breed long-lasting success.

Let us briefly touch on this deep, dark subject and I hope to dispel some of the many deceitful lies surrounding death. Rid from your minds misleading manure manufactured in the hearts of mankind, deceitfully placed there by wicked spirits in high places. Whether you are in a physical prison cell—designed, manufactured, and created by men—or a spiritual prison cell—designed, manufactured, and created by you, in prison you will remain until you‘re freed with truth. ―The truth shall set you free.‖ This is not just some saying but a bodacious,

ix

blanket statement of fact from the Omnipotent One who reigns supreme. Verse 31 ―To the Jews who had believed Him, Jesus said, ‗If you hold to my teaching, you are really my disciples.‘‖ Verse 32 ―‗Then you will know the truth, and the truth will set you free.‘‖ John 8:30-32; New International Version. The truth is: your life is a gift from the supreme Giver of Life. So significantly important is your life, you, by your own hand—or hatefully by someone else‘s—must not take your life by premature destruction, it will not prematurely end on its own. If the Giver of Life intended your life to end at any time, He would simply take back the breath of life which the Almighty personally placed in you—to live and not die, to thrive and not wither. This is a fundamental understanding you must know and inculcate within your life, decades before the tribulation age of 42. Sincerely beseech the Lord for help, and assured significant help is what you will receive. Don‘t commit the unthinkable; contemplating the act of suicide is sinful enough. However, even though you‘re mentally and spiritually like the walking dead, there is hope. Opportunity remains to rebuild ww10 and renew the happiness God intended for you.

Your liabilities will greatly increase. And know this: you have no right to take any life, even if you foolishly feel it‘s ww11 your own.

; therefore, live as your Creator intended you to. Beseech your Maker, ask for His divine guidance and direction for your life. Grow in the grace and knowledge of the Eternal. He will free you from all aches, all pains, all prisons whether in your mind or in a physical prison manufactured by men. A very sad, sinister film on suicide is not suitable for anyone to see, no matter what age. This is a film on children in Japan committing suicide at an alarming rate.

A demonic look at deceived minds going the wrong way of the Evil One.
ww12

And for those of you who live, particularly in the nation of Japan—or anywhere throughout the world—here is a prayer which is faithful and true, a helpful prayer that will never fail to get you through, a spiritually strong prayer that will strengthen you. Verse 4 ―Look to my right and see; no one is concerned for me. I have no refuge; no one cares for my life.‖ Verse 5 ―I cry to you, O Lord; I say, ‗You are my refuge, my portion in the land of the living.‘‖ Verse 6 ―Listen to my cry, for I am in

desperate need; rescue me from those who pursue me, for they are too strong for me.‖ Verse 7 ―Set me free from my prison, that I may praise Your name. Then the righteous will gather about me because of your goodness to me.‖ Psalm 142:4-7; New International Version. Verse 1 ―O Lord, hear my prayer, listen to my cry for mercy; in Your faithfulness and righteousness come to my relief.‖ Verse 2 ―Do not bring your servant into judgment, for no one living is righteous before you.‖ Verse 7 ―Answer me quickly, O Lord; my spirit fails. Do not hide your face from me or I will be like those who go down to the pit.‖ Verse 8 ―Let the morning bring me word of your unfailing love, for I have put my trust in you. Show me the way I should go, for to you I lift up my soul.‖ Verse 9 ―Rescue me from my enemies, O Lord, for I hide myself in you.‖ Verse 10 ―Teach me to do Your will, for You are my God; may Your good Spirit lead me on level ground.‖ Verse 11 ―For your name‘s sake, O Lord, preserve my life; in your righteousness, bring me out of trouble.‖ Verse 12 ―In your unfailing love, silence my enemies; destroy all my foes, for I am your servant.‖ Psalm 143:1-2,712; New International Version. In the name of the Eternal Creator God, I pray, so be it. Amen.

Blessings Of Life From The Chariots and Horsemen Series Know Your Reasonable Service
Mankind has got just about everything backwards. No matter what it is, from what we eat to what we wear, what we think, and how we feel, to what we should believe and especially, who we should believe in. One of the more popular beliefs is to believe in yourself. People say no matter whether you‘re too fat or too skinny, too short, too tall, or not as attractive as everyone else: Believe in yourself. They say if you believe in yourself that is all that matters. That is what will make everything okay. To believe in yourself is what is important. This is common self-confidence building which the entire world has adopted. Unfortunately, it is completely wrong. In all fairness, because of the extreme high levels of depression within our modern society, from grade school children through seniors in high school and continuing as senior citizens, depression has laid waste the minds of millions. Hence this popular saying: ―As long as you believe in yourself, that‘s ww13 the only one you need to please.‖

Verse 17 ―Before him all the nations are as nothing; they are regarded by him as worthless and less than nothing.‖ Isaiah 40:17; New International Version.

Now, when I say nothing, I am referring to mankind apart from God. I recall a famous speech made popular back in the days of the civil rights movement in the 1950s and ‗60s,

Jesse Jackson said, ―I am somebody. I may be poor, but I am somebody.‖ Well, that is absolutely true. In actuality, all ww15 mankind—

No matter what your status is: rich or poor, celebrity status or living as a hermit—nothing and less than nothing is what we all are, apart from our Creator.

Do Not Remain An Unprofitable Servant
People get all bent out of shape about losing things they feel they have lost, especially in marriage. A woman gets married young and for twenty years she gives herself to her husband, all of her youth and vitality. Then after twenty years the husband says, ―Oh, I don‘t love you anymore.‖ Being stupid and ignorant, he goes off finding someone younger than she, possibly the same age his wife was when he first met her 20 years ago. This is appalling and very insulting. The wife says, ―I have given you the best years of my life and now you disrespect and dishonor me by heartlessly taking for granted all I have done for you.‖ (Wife continues) ―I cannot believe your frozen heart, all the years I have sacrificed and slaved for you, now you throw all I have given behind your back as nothing. It‘s simply unbelievable how you have no regard and trample my heart. And now you have the nerve to say to me with a straight face, ‗Please understand?‘‖ The movie starring Angela Bassett, brings this common tragedy of unfaithfulness and betrayal vividly to mind.

―I give you 11 years of my life and you‘re telling me that you‘re leaving me for another woman?‖

Unfortunately, this sad, heart-wrenching scenario takes place on a daily basis thousands of times across America, perhaps multiple millions of times across the world. Everything this anguished wife has said is true. Everything except one major point, and that major point ww16 is everything.

As an example, your father gives you a nice gift, wrapped up beautifully, neatly packed within a box. You in turn take that gift and hand it to your spouse. Perhaps you divide it. Some you give to your spouse, and other portions you save for your future children. But what in reality have you actually done? In truth, you have only handed down to ww17 others a gift that was previously handed to you. Perhaps many times throughout the day, parents utter this statement verbatim to their children because children, historically and carnally, take for granted every single thing that is done for them. From the time they were conceived in the womb, living their nine months within a wonderfully-woven cocoon, they received all of the—hopefully—good, delicious nutrition from the mother. But when the baby pops out, conveniently because they can‘t talk, they don‘t utter a single thanks for the nine months of healthy eating and living. Everyone who is

a parent going through this experience of: the world only revolves around me, selfish, baby attitude, knows all too well that the ingratitude continues. Perhaps sadly, the ungratefulchildren syndrome increases as they get older. I remember a scene in the movie starring Spencer Tracy, Katharine Hepburn, and Sidney Poitier. In this scene Sidney Poitier was desperately trying to explain to his father why he wants to marry this girl he is in love with. For the benefit of those who did not see this film, the beautiful girl he was in love with is white. And yes, he is black. Now black and white, especially back in the 60‘s, was a major problem—or minor scandal to say the least. Sidney Poitier‘s father took him aside and said, ―You know, for a man who all his life never put a wrong foot anywhere, you‘re way out of line, boy!‖ Sidney Poitier answered back, ―That‘s for me to decide, man. So just shut up and let me—‖ His father interrupted, ―—You don‘t say that to me! You haven‘t got the right to ever say a thing like that to me. Not after what I‘ve been to you! And you know that, and I know that. Yeah, I know what you are and what you‘ve made of yourself. But you know I worked my [blank] off to get the money to buy you all the chances you had! You know how far I carried that bag in 30 years? 75,000 miles. And mowin‘ lawns in the dark so you wouldn‘t have to be stoking furnaces and could bear down on the books. I tell you, there were things your mother should have had that she insisted go instead for you. And I don‘t mean fancy things. I mean a decent coat. A lousy coat! And you‘re gonna tell me now that means

xvii

xvii

# 3 A Life Of Lessons From The Chariots and Horsemen Series Do Not Remain An Unprofitable Servant

nothin‘ to you and you gonna break your mother‘s heart?‖ (His father was a mailman.) Sidney Poitier becomes angry at his father‘s statements, and makes an insensitive, disrespectful statement to his father, although what he says is profound and 100% true.

Sidney turns to his father and says, ―You listen to me. You say you don‘t want to tell me how to live my life? So what do you think you‘ve been doing? You tell me what rights I‘ve got or haven‘t got and what I owe to you for what you‘ve done for me. Let me tell you something. I owe you nothing. If you carried that bag a million miles you did what you were supposed to do because you brought me into this world and from that day you owed me everything you could ever do for me, like I will owe my son if I ever have another.‖ The words Sidney Poitier spoke to his father were absolutely correct, and every parent needs to heed them as well as spouses to each another. All that we have has been given to us and anything that we‘ve given to others was the substance passed on to us—whether or not the inheritance from parents was very little or much. I‘m speaking here in terms of dollars and cents. But any form the gift

xviii

xviii

# 3 A Life Of Lessons From The Chariots and Horsemen Series Do Not Remain An Unprofitable Servant

comes in, it was a gift, whether the inheritance was 10¢ or $10M. We‘re all inheritors from our Almighty Creator. Whatever you proudly feel you have, don't hold your head up too high. Anything and everything we give was given to us. The blood, sweat, and tears we give was meant to be ww18 given.

This is a divine understanding regarding gifts from God. We should appreciate and graciously enjoy the benefits of gifts given and pass on the rest (or the by-products) in dividends or interest from those gifts. This is one of the main reasons why the Parable of the Talents in God‘s Word is so crucial. It illustrates principles we need to adhere to and carry out. This is why the Creator, the giver of these talents, is extremely bothered by the one who did nothing with the talent he was given. Verse 18 ―But the man who had received the one talent went off, dug a hole in the ground and hid his master‘s money.‖ Verse 19 ―After a long time the master of those servants returned and settled accounts with them.‖ Matthew 25:18-19; New International Version. Everyone who claims to be a follower of Christ should know this story inside and out. Matthew 25, starting from verse 14 up to at least verse 30, all should review whether you believe you understand what is said or not, simply as a good review. It is a good way to reflect on which person you are, which scenario fits your life, knowing and understanding from the Creator‘s perspective where exactly you stand for the

# 3 A Life Of Lessons From The Chariots and Horsemen Series Do Not Remain An Unprofitable Servant

simple fact this lazy person whom Christ referred to wasn‘t standing very well. Verse 24 ―Then the man who had received the one talent came. ‗Master,‘ he said, ‗I knew that you are a hard man, harvesting where you have not sown and gathering where you have not scattered seed.‘‖ Verse 25 ―‗So I was afraid and went out and hid your talent in the ground. See, here is what belongs to you.‘‖ Verse 26 ―His master replied, ‗You wicked, lazy servant! So you knew that I harvest where I have not sown and gather where I have not scattered seed?‘‖ Verse 27 ―‗Well then, you should have put my money on deposit with the bankers, so that when I returned I would have received it back with interest.‘‖ This is the judgment of the Almighty: Verse 28 ―‗Take the talent from him and give it to the one who has the ten talents.‘‖ Verse 29 ―‗For everyone who has will be given more, and he will have an abundance. Whoever does not have, even what he has will be taken from him.‘‖ Verse 30 ―‗And throw that worthless servant outside, into the darkness, where there will be weeping and gnashing of teeth.‘‖ Matthew 25:24-30; New International Version. None of these scriptures need any real interpretation. They simply speak for themselves as a warning which everyww19 one should heed.

Warning: those who give for the praise of others are self-righteously displaying themselves as the Pharisees

did in Christ‘s day. When Pharisees proudly gave their gifts, men with trumpets would be standing next to them, ready to blow the trumpet triumphantly for what was given. But the Lord says, Verse 7 ―For who makes you different from anyone else? What do you have that you did not receive? And if you did receive it, why do you boast as though you did not?‖ 1 Corinthians 4:7; New International Version. Fortunately, there are many great examples today, some bad, but many good, as God has blessed them to be. There are literally thousands of examples of very notable people, prominent and internationally known, who secretly give generously: of their time, their celebrity status, and millions, even billions of dollars, global icons, such as Bill Gates and Oprah Winfrey. Yes I realize there are many, many others, but within my lifetime of 42 years blessed on this earth, I have not witnessed any others who have given more of what they‘ve been given than these two prominent individuals. Think of the billions Microsoft‘s Bill Gates has generously given to others.

tories. It‘s all in hopes of finding a new AIDS vaccine by rewarding labs for innovative ideas and getting researchers to work together. A doctor working with the foundation saying, it‘s their biggest investment in HIV vaccine development.‖ You don‘t see Mr. Gates strutting and bragging selfimportantly about what he has given to others. Throughout the global community, he commits no ungodly gloating. Similar acts of generosity, which I term ―giving yourself away,‖ are seen on a weekly—if not a daily basis—by Oprah Winfrey. Note to Oprah Winfrey, a loving rebuke: your last name, Ms. Winfrey, should have already made a metamorphosis many years ago. The common-law relationship is not lawful enough. Certainly not as lawful as our new-age society likes to pretend it is. Godly principles, laws set in motion by our loving Creator should be—must be— practiced and obeyed wholeheartedly by His entire creation. There are no exceptions, whether you are of high celebrity status, such as Tom Cruise, or a lowly lay member in the church, such as (author) Chuck Thompson. Nevertheless, none of this diminishes the greatness which the Creator has blessed Oprah to achieve regarding the gifts the Eternal has graciously given her; however, God is merciful and His patience is beyond understanding. Regarding the gracious, giving grace of Oprah, I have never seen the like. The Almighty has emphatically blessed her with His God-like given qualities. Remember the cars given away on her show to every person in the audience? It was simply astounding.

Talk show host opens 19th season by giving all her audience members a brand-new Pontiac G-6.

―No wonder she‘s the reigning queen of daytime talk. Oprah Winfrey, one of the world‘s richest entertainers, surprised her fans Monday by giving each of her 276 audience members a new car to celebrate the premiere of her show‘s 19th season. The billionaire talk show host told the audience that everybody will get a new Pontiac G-6 midsize 2005 sports sedan. Winfrey screamed and jumped up and down on the stage, shouting: ‗Everybody gets a car! Everybody gets a car!‘ She then led the audience into the parking lot to check out their new cars. Winfrey told the audience they will get to choose their own color, and the car will include special features such as XM satellite radio, OnStar Safety and heated leather seats. Winfrey said the audience members were specially chosen, because family and friends had told the show‘s producers they needed new wheels.‖ Finally, all these examples bring me to the point I was striving to make from the beginning. We only give to others what we have been given ourselves. No, it doesn‘t matter how hard you work for it. How much

# 3 A Life Of Lessons From The Chariots and Horsemen Series Do Not Remain An Unprofitable Servant

toil, trouble, and sweat you exerted in the effort of achieving success. Again, no wife or husband should ever say to their spouse, ―I have given you this, I have given you that.‖ They would be more accurate in saying, ―The Lord gave me this to give to you and you trample His gift underfoot.‖ Now, that takes the thunder out of it, but the thunder was never in it for you to give away as if it were yours in the first place. The thunder is from the Creator, the one who manufactures thunder, the Creator of thunder and lighting, the sun, moon, stars throughout the heavens, upon the earth, and underneath the earth, including the waters which flow freely over the face of the earth. We must achieve this supreme understanding and get it through our thick, carnal, miserable heads! This is only what we are all supposed to do, what the Almighty God created us for in the first place. In many respects, we should look at it as only our reasonable service. As the Almighty states in Verse 7 ―Suppose one of you had a servant plowing or looking after the sheep. Would he say to the servant when he comes in from the field, ‗Come along now and sit down to eat?‘‖ Verse 8 ―Would he not rather say, ‗Prepare my supper, get yourself ready and wait on me while I eat and drink; after that you may eat and drink‘‖ Verse 9 ―Would he thank the servant because he did what he was told to do?‖ Verse 10 ―So you also, when you have done everything you were told to do, should say, ‗We are unworthy servants; we have only done our duty.‘‖ Luke 17:7-10; New International Version. Verse 9 and 10 in the New King James Version renders it more forcefully,

xxiv

# 3 A Life Of Lessons From The Chariots and Horsemen Series Do Not Remain An Unprofitable Servant

Verse 9 ―Does he thank that servant because he did the things that were commanded him? I think not.‖ Verse 10 ―So likewise you, when you have done all those things which you are commanded, say, ‗We are unprofitable servants. We have done what was our duty to do.‘‖ Luke 17:9-10; NKJV. We have only done our duty and that duty is to the Creator Himself who has graciously given us all the abilities, the knowhow, the talents to be blessed to do what we were designed to do in the first place. That‘s right, predestined to do by the Almighty Himself before the creation of the world. The Almighty God has not left us without a clear explanation of these matters. This is especially true for God‘s elect. Verse 3 ―Praise be to the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, who has blessed us in the heavenly realms with every spiritual blessing in Christ.‖ Verse 4 ―For He chose us in Him before the creation of the world to be holy and blameless in his sight. In love‖ Verse 5 ―He predestined us to be adopted as His sons through Jesus Christ, in accordance with His pleasure and will—‖ Verse 6 ―to the praise of His glorious grace, which He has freely given us in the One He loves.‖ Verse 7 ―In Him we have redemption through His blood, the forgiveness of sins, in accordance with the riches of God‘s grace‖ Verse 8 ―that he lavished on us with all wisdom and understanding.‖ Verse 9 ―And He made known to us the mystery of His will according to His good pleasure, which he purposed in Christ,‖ Verse 10 ―to be put into effect when the times will have reached their fulfillment—to bring all things in heaven and on earth together under one head, even Christ.‖ Verse 11 ―In Him we were also chosen, having been predestined according

to the plan of Him who works out everything in conformity with the purpose of His will,‖ Verse 12 ―in order that we, who were the first to hope in Christ, might be for the praise of His glory.‖ Verse 13 ―And you also were included in Christ when you heard the word of truth, the gospel of your salvation. Having believed, you were marked in Him with a seal, the promised Holy Spirit‖ Ephesians 1:3-13; New International Version. Now I realize, this will be extremely hard or maybe even impossible for you to comprehend. It would be for anyone, no matter how much they claim to know. Being spiritually inclined, foolishly feeling you possess all wisdom—even if that were possible—would make you an incompetent, miserable imbecile compared to the greatness of the Creator, as in the old Broadway stage show titled

strive to keep the ways of the Eternal, you may suffer heartache, or even for a time, a broken heart. But, it is essential ww21 that you remain faithful.

When we remain steadfast in these tests, all who endure to the end, win. Remember the beginning banner displayed from the movie ? This part of the film is more profound than we first understood; I wonder if anyone realized it, including the director himself. Right after the unfaithful husband told the wife of his youth (as God would characterize her) that he was leaving her for another woman, the radio in the background sounded an alert. This message was mysterious and kind of startling. As this type of alert tends to be, coming out of the blue as they do, it sounded sinister because of the exact time it came on. This announcement was an alert from the emergency broadcast system.
Emergency Broadcast System
The Emergency Broadcast System was initiated in 1963 during the Kennedy Administration, to allow the president to address the entire nation in an www.fas.org/nuke/guide/ emergency. usa/c3i/ebs.htm

rupted. A strong male voice with a stern and serious tone speaks, saying, ―This is a test from the emergency broadcast system. It is only a test.‖ About a second after the voice stops a loud, constant, piercing sound rings until the test is completed. And yes, that piercing warning alert sounds for about 42 seconds. I kid you not, test it for yourself.
Please note: you can go to www.worldemergency.com Click on Age of 42, Waiting to Exhale excerpt. Emergency Broadcast Test should play.

What does all this mean? Again, the meaning is profound. Right at the exact time when the heartless husband told his wife he was leaving her for another woman, the emergency voice came on saying, ―This is only a test.‖ It was as if the Eternal Himself was giving her an encouraging reminder that trials do end. It was a signal for strengthening the wife ww22 which was a form of comfort because I realize some of you, maybe many reading this explanation, feel I am reading too much into this common occurrence. I think not. The old saying my grandmother frequently quoted, ―The Lord works in mysterious ways‖ still rings true, especially today. Keeping the commands of Christ and enduring to the end is the key to true salvation. Verse 13 ―but he who stands firm to the end will be saved.‖ Matthew 24:13; New International Version. In the movie, Angela Bassett, the wife, was given a happy ending. In court, she was victorious over her unfaithful, wretched husband. The judge awarded her a great deal more than she even dreamed of receiving. The judge stated, ―The settlement will go as follows: One and a

half million dollars in the Phoenix Municipal Savings and Loan Association, ownership of the residence at 1985 Ohio Drive in Pinnacle Peak, Arizona, a second house in Acapulco, Mexico, $500,000 in stocks and bonds, and an E320S Mercedes station wagon.‖

In reality, victory will certainly rest on us as we obey God‘s will. His will is to grant us peace, happiness, and great ww23 satisfaction. Understand and remember, the Almighty is with you from the beginning, the beginning of all tests—which are temporary. The Lord rings the alarm bells, announcing to you: ―This is only a test.‖ And from the very beginning, the Almighty continues to walk with you, giving us all the strength along the way, knowing His Word will stand. Never forget: if we remain faithful, the Eternal will be faithful to all His wonderful promises which will always go beyond anything we can ever imagine. Verse 20 ―Now to Him who is able to do immeasurably more than all we ask or imagine, according to His power that is at work within us.‖ Ephesians 3:20; New International Version.

Why Title
One question I‘m asked frequently is: why the title ? First of all, it is my age; I am 42. A great many of the things I discuss in this book and in (if it‘s the Lord‘s will) the three volumes of are things we should know, understandings we should already have, and accomplishments we should have long since achieved. Now, again, it doesn‘t matter if you‘re past 42 or 52, 62, 72, 82, 92—even the age of 102, this book is extremely relevant for ww24 you. The point is: I remember a documentary called .

This film is about two boys growing up six miles from where I was raised in Chicago, Illinois. They lived in a highcrime, drug-infested, poverty-stricken area in and around the Cabrini Green projects, west of downtown Chicago. The two main characters interviewed friends and families who grew up in this ghetto project. One of the gang members was asked, ―You ain‘t [blank], sitting out here looking like a bum selling dummy bags. I‘ll see you ten years from now begging for a drink.‖ The friend cynically said, ―I ain‘t gonna be alive in ten

years…‖ He continued, ―Ain‘t nobody gonna be alive in ten years.‖ He said this from the perspective of what happens to people growing up within these poverty-stricken areas. With gangs and drive-by shootings, people his age don‘t last very long. Young, teenage funerals are commonplace, conducted on a regular basis there and in many other similar neighborhoods across America. But in reality, I don‘t think he, or those who were interviewing—or you reading this book— understand how truly profound his statement was. Pardon the pun, but he is just about dead on the money. Add ten years from now as I am finishing up the chapters in this book—July 2006—and we are at 2016. I tell you the truth, even pondering the possibility of that date, makes me cringe. My heart is literww25 ally racing. I dare say no one knows how unbelievably frightening ten years from now in America will be. It will be unthinkable.

The Deeper Divine Meaning Behind 42
The number 42, as previously stated, is insightful. This biblical number is a warning, a sign of things to come. No one in their right mind should be waiting until the age of 42 to change their ways. 42 is a significant number of trial and testing, signifying a time of tribulation for 42 months, when nations around the world will be at war—World War III.
ww26

That‘s why it doesn‘t matter if you are 42, 52, 62, or even going back to the ages of 32 or 22. Those of you who are approaching the age of 21, half of 42, will not reach the age of 42 before certain cataclysmic, catastrophic events encompass America as well as the entire international community. Our world as we know it will soon change forever, and it will most certainly get immeasurably worse before it begins to get better. Those of you who are 21, who think you have 21 years to go to get your life right had better think again. The ww27

. I‘ll give you an example of how you should measure and consider the little time we all have on this earth. If you are currently 33, you should be seriously working to be spiritually minded before the age of 42. I would consider nine years from now extremely late in the game for you to successfully get your house in order before you reach the age of 42. If you feel life in the or anywhere else will continue in the current hunky-dory status quo, you are simply deceived. Eve-

ryone must understand the critical crossroads we‘ve come to in human history; there is very little time left. But please don‘t misunderstand, no one knows exactly when serious end-time biblical events will be fulfilled. The Creator says, Verse 36 ―No one knows about that day or hour, not even the angels in heaven, nor the Son, but only the Father.‖ Matthew 24:36; New International Version. Only a fool will set a date; however, the Creator does tell us we must know the times and their seasons, and be aware of turbulent events taking place within our world. Spiritual-minded people should be spiritually in sync with what the Almighty allows regarding how current world events affect us. Whether it‘s so-called global warming, universal religion, the new world order, or absolute war, spiritual individuals must recognize the signs of the ww28 times.

Many are wondering regarding the conflicts in Israel that are exploding in the Middle East, in Lebanon and everywhere else that hates Israel—is this World War III? The political leaders of the international community have not yet come to prominent power at this time, however, their itinerary for traveling the globe, setting up world terror to begin World War III has been set.

Man of God Side Note
―We don‘t know that day and that hour. Right now, of course, we don‘t even know the year. There probably will come a time on the basis of Daniel 12 when it would be difficult to say, we don‘t know the year. And it would also be difficult to say we wouldn‘t know the month. Jesus said that of that day and hour, knows no man, and He was speaking of His time and since as we were learning this morning that it pays to the very end to be watching, even during the last night to see that your attitude is right. Remember the story of the thief that breaks into the house, that you had read to you this morning? The answer is that you need to have that right attitude, as the prophet wrote long ago, ‗Don‘t let the sun go down on your wrath and go to bed angry.‘ Lest God finds what your attitude is when He wakens you suddenly. We need to realize that we always should have our attitude straight, correct before God and that means before one another. Because until you‘re reconciled to one another, you cannot be reconciled to God. God judges you in terms of how you behave toward others.‖

Man of God - Wisdom

Everyone who can see with their eyes and perceive with their minds, will be able to have a physical understanding of what is taking place. But for the more important, crucial, spiritual implications, unrighteous, unspiritual minds won‘t have a clue. Christ Himself rebuked those who claimed to be righteous but lacked real spiritual awareness. Verse 2 ―He replied, ‗When evening comes, you say, ―It will be fair weather, for the sky is red,‘‖ Verse 3 ―‗and in the morning, ‗Today it will be stormy, for the sky is red and overcast.‘ You know how to interpret the appearance of the sky, but you cannot interpret the signs of the times.‘‖ Verse 4 ―‗A wicked and adulterous generation looks for a miraculous sign, but none will be given it except the sign of Jonah.‘‖ Matthew 16:2-4; New International Version. Obtaining that true spiritual understanding is the most critical, important thing you must do, striving now to overcome at any age, certainly before the tribulation age of 42. Verse 41 ―As He approached Jerusalem and saw the city, He wept over it‖ Verse 42 ―and said, ‗If you, even you, had only known on this day what would bring you peace—but now it is hidden from your eyes.‘‖ Verse 43 ―The days will come upon you when your enemies will build an embankment against you and encircle you and hem you in on every side.‖ Verse 44 ―They will dash you to the ground, you and the children within your walls. They will not leave one stone on another, because you did not recognize the time of God‘s coming to you.‖ Luke 19:41-44; New International Version.

No, for me the tipping point was the direct repudiation of America by North Korea, deliberately showing their contempt for us by firing their missiles on July 4th, followed by both the North Koreans and the Iranians saying quite clearly they‘re gonna build nuclear weapons and they‘re gonna build missiles and they frankly don‘t care what the United Nations says.

―We see the active terrorist alliance worldwide. We see an effort on the part of our enemies to prepare themselves to defeat us. [And] we hear the dictator of Iran, Ahmadinejad, say he ‗wants to defeat America and eliminate Israel from the face of the earth.‘‖ These ongoing conflicts little Judah has with his neighbors will continue until the end. Conflicts will begin, conflicts will end. Sometimes it will be from the Palestinians, sometimes from Lebanon, but all directed by Iran or Syria, supported by a whole host of enemy cheerleading nations against Israel. This however, is not World War III. Nevertheless, the observation Newt Gingrich gave can be considered dark clouds forming in the sky over the heads of the entire house of Israel. Additionally, North Korea‘s involvement is a wake-up call but not primarily just for the United States. It‘s a wakeup call for Japan to pick up arms once again, to tear up the constitution which was drafted after WWII by General Douglas McArthur, and to get back into the war-race game and protect their nation. God slapped us in the face with Japan coming across the ocean and bombing us at Pearl Harbor. We weren‘t going to get involved in the war unless they did that. God says, ―Wake up, there‘s war going on around the world and you‘re next unless you get into this mix and solve it. I have blessed you to be the single greatest nation on the face of the earth and you had better get in there and be great as I have blessed you.

You‘re on our side now.‖ Well, in the future there won‘t be a United States for them to be on anybody‘s side. I realize the removal of from power sounds incredible to most. However, the castration of our beloved nation will take place. Soon this unmerciful surgery, without painkillers, will happen. But we must be warned with wisdom; the Almighty says, verse 7, But when you hear of wars and rumors of wars, do not be troubled; for such things must happen, but the end is not yet. Verse 8 For nation will rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom. And there will be earthquakes in various places, and there will be famines and troubles. These are the beginnings of sorrows. Mark 13:7-8; New King James Version. Understand: a plethora of problems will pop up all over the world. Whether Pakistan attacks India, vice-versa, or troubles in Afghanistan, your protection lies with your Creator. Those are not the troubles that will bring in these end-time events. P.S. Note: Regarding those who will destroy the House of Israel, do not be too concerned with the king of the south from the Middle East. The deadliest concern lies with the future king of the north—from Europe.

Author’s Synopsis
America‘s destiny with the unthinkable, unbelievable, inevitable mushroom cloud of mass murder unfortunately, will be a deadly reality. Many horrific scenes will replay themselves over and over again. Verse 6 ―...man with his hands on his stomach like a woman in labor, every face turned deathly pale?‖ Jeremiah 30:6; New International Version. This mushroom cloud will almost be a common occurrence throughout the many cities across the nation. Yes, I fully understand it‘s hard to believe, it‘s even very troubling to picture it, let alone trying to comprehend it. However, the Eternal will allow these fateful events to take place. America, and the rest of the children of Israel, will certainly be corrected. The United States, a leader among those brother nations, will surely be spanked most severely into submission. Once again, it is inevitable. Many of our cities will be burned with fire. The prophetic whirlwind swirling down on the heads of the wicked will be comprehended for what it is and why it is happening. Confirmation of this event is promised in God‘s

In days to come you will understand it clearly.‖ Jeremiah 23:19-20; New International Version. I am so secure with this understanding. I‘m ashamed to admit a very carnal and consistent thought which I have coveted in my heart. I did not want destruction to take place or see any mushroom cloud over a single city in America before I finish this book. Now, please bear with me. Don‘t misunderstand. I have no desire to see my beloved country, America, harmed or destroyed in any way. May God forbid. I‘m in no way, hoping for any such disasters to take place. Nevertheless, I know that they will and I shamefully admit I didn‘t want those events to steal my thunder. Literally, I want to finish, publish, market, and distribute this book around the world first. I felt in my heart what good could come from trying to ring a bell that is already rung? Would anybody be listening?—certainly, the dead will not. Moreover, on the flip side of things, I have a great many positive, noble reasons to write this book and the volumes that will follow—if it is the Lord‘s will. One primary reason is to warn the nation and the rest of the world about the soon-coming terrifying events. Personally, I have an overwhelming desire to help prepare our nation and its people for the trials and the tribulations to come. I believe, wholeheartedly, that millions can survive and be saved from the destruction through very wise, diligent, and careful

planning. The precious and critical time left is extremely crucial. Time is not on America‘s side. Therefore, I feel a great responsibility, and that responsibility has been given to me by God as a blessing and a privilege to tell what I know and to help others understand. Now, let me make it clear, I don‘t feel that I‘m better than anyone else. Every man, woman, and child on the face of the earth has a special calling given to them by the Creator, a unique reason why they are on the earth. And no matter what their calling is, it all comes down to helping, guiding, and directing one another. Simply put, we are here on this earth to give ourselves away. May God forgive me for my self-centered, carnal way of thinking and may God bless me to obey and fulfill His will and sure purpose for my life.

Warning Memo To America
Well, America, the end has come and we have no one to blame, no other nations. We have done it to ourselves and there is no turning back. The ungodly, unfaithful, selfish sink hole we have dug for ourselves is simply enormous. This nation has literally dug its own grave, the size thereof is unthinkable, unbelievable. It is one million times the size of the Grand Canyon, deep enough for every man, woman, and child from one end of the United States to the other to fit in comfortably. There will be no need for any citizen to jockey for position within the grave. No jostling, pushing, or shoving as we currently do now to each other, alive and living in America. No, no one needs to be cremated; all current citizens, friends, families, and visitors will be accommodated. Simply put, we‘re going to die. Prepare to meet thy God! Therefore, I say again, get your house in order. Now is the time to fulfill your calling, your uniquely specified reason for living. Soon you will have to explain why very little was accomplished, why you took the talent which was graciously and generously given to you and wasted it. You did very little or nothing with it. It was buried by your unproductive, idle procrastination. When you finally meet your maker, you will most certainly go through an extremely uncomfortable Wicked Sins Judgment Review, from which, if your life falls within this faithless, fruitless category, you will most certainly, be seriously rebuked. A rebuking by the Eternal will be beyond understanding. Accompanying this excruciating, fearful awareness will be an overwhelming loathing which no one has yet experienced this side of creation.

Warning Memo To America

If unrepented sins remain lingering, festering sores within your life, for the very first time you will see, smell, and taste your stench. Your very own cesspool of sins will overwhelm and overtake you. Even before the final judgment of the Creator, heavy penalties and extreme punishments will most certainly have already been meted out. Verse 2 ―Those destined for death to death. Those for the sword to the sword. Those for starvation to starvation. Those for captivity to captivity.‖ Jeremiah 15:2; New International Version. Specifically those who are destined for captivity will have time to think and reflect on all their evil ways, brazenly parading their detestable sins throughout the city streets, and living rebelliously, throwing behind their backs all of the laws ww29 of the Eternal. Deceived, , captivated almost their entire lives by the passing pleasures of sin. All pleasures being past, the demented sin-ridden captives are all that is left. Verse 9 ―Then in the nations where they have been carried captive, those who escape will remember me—how I have been grieved by their adulterous hearts, which have turned away from me, and by their eyes, which have lusted after their idols. They will loathe themselves for the evil they have done and for all their detestable practices.‖ Verse 10 ―And they will know that I am the Lord; I did not threaten in vain to bring this calamity on them.‖ Ezekiel 6:9-10; New International Version.

because the vast majority of people are ill-informed and ill-prepared. America, and all the other nations, will not be able to cope with the deadly effects of terrorism that await us all. Even with basic natural disasters, such as earthquakes, fires and floods, again, more than 90% of those who live in the United States do not have a clue how they should react: what to do or where to go. A great many people will simply be in a state of shock. Others will ww36 panic; their animal-like instincts will then take over.

The cutthroat mentality displayed by some citizens following hurricane Katrina, unfortunately, is just the beginning rumblings of a volcano that will erupt throughout every city in America. Except for those who sadly lost their lives, future catastrophes will be significantly worse. I believe millions within the United States understand there will be another attack upon our soil. Perhaps there will be many such attacks and with increasing severity. I recall a profound scene in the movie starring Denzel Washington and Meryl Streep.

No one has really heeded any of His warnings. Those leaders, as God blessed them, did what they could with the basic spiritual understanding taught to them; however, it was not enough. All America, along with the many blessed leaders the Creator has given us, has fallen fatally short. President Ronald Reagan was one such great leader. Blessed as a leader of the United States, I believe this fortieth president was inspired by God to breathe life back into our nation. But when the breath of life was taken from him, his passing seemed indicative of deathlike events destined to befall America.

Before that time—especially from the end of World War II up until 1963—America was like a mighty king. Our

This vital gold key has been stolen, viciously ripped from the increasingly godless learning system we have within our schools today. This spiritual process would help children to understand how extremely important their life is. If our children are confused in any way, an open group discussion would reveal that they are not alone. From this simple process, many would find comfort. Based on the ways of God, along with true spiritual upbringing and proper teaching by their parents, schools can also guide students on a right and strong foundation.

The many uncertainties of life and death are just that, very uncertain. I know in my foolish heart, I didn‘t call my father often enough. After one of the very rare times I did call, I still remember him saying, ―Son, just call me any time, no matter what. It don‘t have to be something special. I just want to hear from you.‖ Frequently my father made that statement and I always replied, ―Okay Pops, I will. I‘ll make sure.‖ But again, the time would pass by.

Of course, Miss Carey played a singer in this movie, and right before one of her performances, her manager was murdered. Before her final song on stage, she made this profound statement: ―Everybody out there, don‘t ever take anybody for granted because you never know when you might lose them and you may never get a chance to tell them how you really feel.‖ Fortunately I was mercifully blessed by my to be able to see and talk to my physical father before he died.

My younger brother was a much better son to my father and he took very good care of him in my foolish, selfish absence.

He went on to explain that my father was telling him to bring his entire family to him. The doctor said to me repeatedly, ―I don‘t want you to think I‘m crazy or I have lost my mind, but I really feel your father is speaking to me, saying, ‗Please just get my family here.‘‖ He also said my dad spoke to his mind that he was going to hold on physically until this was accomplished. At my arrival, he said, ―Your Pops became more peaceful and his vital signs stabilized.‖ But he said to me privately, ―There must still be someone else, this is the reason he‘s holding on, because he should‘ve been gone by now. Time is running out. In the medical profession, we‘ve seen similar cases like this many times, and the patients don‘t last as long as your father has.‖ The doctor continued, ―I know in my heart and soul, your father was communicating to my mind, and God allowed me to hear him. There must still be someone else.‖ And that is when the understanding came to me, of course he‘s waiting for my sister, Audrey. My father realized they still had issues to resolve, things to be reconciled. The Creator blessed those issues to be relatively cleared so he could die in peace and his daughter could live in peace. The Almighty granted His grace by allowing them to clear the air of the past, poisoned by many fights before the sun went down on his and her life.

trated and ordered by the Creator Himself. Other family members came, paid their respects, wept, and left. Only my brother and I were left with my father. When we were inspired to sing the song and moved to read the Almighty‘s Word, suddenly his vital signs began to ebb away. The breath of God began to be removed from his soul. Literally, God blessed him to pass away in peace. It bears repeating, unfortunately too often, we wait and ww55 wait and wait some more, but time is not on our side.

I‘ve heard many people in similar circumstances say, ―I‘m not ready yet, I still need more time, I‘ll do it—but later, when I‘m ready. I just need more time.‖ They always say, ―I‘ll do it tomorrow—tomorrow.‖ And suddenly, there is no tomorrow. Tomorrow never comes. Do any of you remember the song Many artists have sung it, but I believe the best version was by Donny Hathaway; however, there was a really profound introduction given by another artist, Carmen McCrae. Before she began this song, she introduced it with this statement: “You know, I have sung this song for many years. But I don‟t think that I really understood the words until a dear friend passed away, without warning and forever. So, if there are words you have to say to someone, someone dear, say them now. For as the song says, „tomorrow may never, never come.‟”

As I said before, many singers have performed and recorded this song. The best one I have ever heard was done by the late Donny Hathaway—Donny blows this song beautifully like no one has sung it since its conception. While the lyrics of this song are very touching and sweet, some statements made in it are not accurate, such as, the words in the beginning: ―For all we know,‖ it says, ―We may never meet again.‖ First of all, this is a flat out mis-statement, an untrue fabrication of sentimental nonsense.

But now, with my beloved mother, I‘ve truly started to see the light and change my rebellious ways by doing what I should have been doing all along. Obeying the straight and direct commandment from the Almighty is the key. Verse 12 ―To honor your mother and your father so that you may live long in the land the Lord, your God is giving you.‖ Deuteronomy 5:12; New International Version.

One particular prisoner she befriended, as she made her medical rounds throughout the prison, told her all about his family, himself, and of course, why he was in prison in the first place. Now, this inmate wasn‘t the run-of-the-mill prisoner with some hard luck story which just happened to land him in jail. This inmate supposedly, single-handedly, brought back the death penalty to the state of Illinois. He was convicted as a hit-man, hired to murder someone. That‘s right, my mother didn‘t just meet some inmate—she met . Stateville Penitentiary is famous for its infamous, notorious guests: residents like Richard Benjamin Speck who reportedly killed eight nurses and John Wayne Gacy who was a sadistic homosexual serial killer—to name a few.

With God‘s sweetness in my mother, her job turned out to be a real life blessing in disguise. This inmate told her about his very young son, who also resided in Chicago as we did at the time. He confided in my mother all about his little boy, and explained to her the many regrets he now had, regarding

He confided to me about how it was, what prison life was like. He told me some absolutely, heart-wrenching things— horrific things that have never left me to this day. He explained that inside prison, you either go mad and lose your mind completely or you maintain a tolerable level of insanity. He said, ―Sometimes what your eyes see simply don‘t make any sense.‖ Men rape other men as if it was as normal as drinking water. Chained and locked up like wild animals, animals some inmates become.

These vicious attacks take place countless times until the violated victim either passes out or profuse bleeding occurs.

Raped inmates would make up stories stating they simply had a severe case of hemorrhoids.

I realize this is a very shocking and graphic story; however, it serves as a real and vivid warning to those who are currently on the wrong path—the path that will lead them to a place like this. This was not what he wanted. He did love his son, and he was desperate for my mother to help him. My mother also loved him and was extremely concerned. I believe she felt that this was her special calling. As the Lord inspired her, she did just that. She took him in as her very own son.

I was blessed to meet her on the last day of the year, December 31st, 1984, one hour before New Year‘s Eve. What a wonderful and great gift God gave me at the end of that day, a day full of blessings which I will never forget. That night even started out in my favor. I was fortunate to receive the coveted assignment of sitting at the information desk. This was at the entrance where all the beautiful nurses came in for the night. Wow! I‘ll tell ww65 you what,

forms of white, who gracefully walked in with warm, giving smiles. And yes, they looked directly at me. And if—in my very humble opinion—you looked as good as me, irresistible as I am, then how can you blame them? Each one of these nurses gave me special attention, at the least, an extra glance. Now, that is exactly what happened to me as my future wife from the Lord walked through the door, extra attention was paid. Gracefully gliding in and gleaming in her white uniform, snuggly tight, nicely fitting her lovely form in all the right places, looking absolutely lovely, her eyes focused on me.

I saw she was blessed with beautiful blonde hair and deep blue eyes and looking very sensuous, she smiled right at me. And to my surprise, she also gave me a little bit more. This beautiful blonde in white walked directly up to me, stood up on her tip-toes and said, ―Ooh...big arms!‖ Wrapping her soft warm palms around my big, hard, flexing biceps, she pulled herself up and kissed me ever so gently right on the lips.

When I, Chuck Thompson the mighty-man monster from the midway, maintained fierce daily workouts that constantly consumed my mind and body. Coming to a crossroads in my life, I had a decision to make. I needed to choose whether I was going to continue to pursue playing football or walk in newness of life in the faithful direction the Almighty was guiding me towards.

Even though she didn‘t understand completely, she walked up behind me and placed her comforting arms around me as if she could read my mind. Gently turning me around to face her, this woman of stability looked straight at me, softly speaking words of sincere conviction. She said, ―I don‘t know what‘s wrong or what‘s troubling you, but whatever it is remember I‘m your best support.‖ Right then, at that very moment, I knew she was for me—a gift from the Giver of Gifts.

The reason I am absolutely certain my daughter is a direct, personal gift from God—the Supreme Giver of Gifts—is because she was not planned at all. My wife and I were not trying to have a baby. Truly, having a child was the furthest thing from my mind. As a ww70 matter of fact, We prayed God would close up her womb. That‘s right! Our prayers to the ww71 Eternal would go something like this:

Not only did we both pray together before these glori40 40

The Things That Matter Are The Things That Really Matter

ous, intense sexual encounters, but I put on a condom as well. Why, you might ask? Didn‘t I have faith that God would answer my prayer and prevent my wife from becoming pregnant? The answer to this disrespectful, presumptuous question is an overwhelmingly emphatic—yes! I believed the Creator would certainly hear my prayer and bless us according to His will, however, as the scripture plainly says, Verse 20 ―...faith without works is dead?‖ Verse 21 ―Was not Abraham our father justified by works when he offered Isaac his son on the altar?‖ Verse 22 ―Do you see that faith was working together with his works, and by works faith was made perfect?‖ Verse 23 ―And the Scripture was fulfilled which says, ‗Abraham believed God, and it was accounted to him for righteousness.‘ And he was called the friend of God.‖ Verse 24 ―You see then that a man is justified by works, and not by faith only.‖ Verse 25 ―Likewise, was not Rahab the harlot also justified by works when she received the messengers and sent them out another way?‖ Verse 26 ―For as the body without the spirit is dead, so faith without works is dead also.‖ James 2:20-26; ww72 New King James Version. In other words,

Some may remember a famous commercial back in the 70s which had this motto: ―We will sell no wine before its ww73 time.‖ Well, for my wife and me, our motto is similar, Despite our faithful efforts, God‘s perfect will was manifested in a very big way about nine months later. We had changed

contraceptives. We began to use a female contraceptive called, ―The Sponge.‖ This contraceptive turned out to be very deceptive. I remember the subheading on the box read, ―For Today‘s Women.‖ Well, in my mind, it should have read, ―For Today‘s Brady Bunch.‖

Regarding the conception of my daughter, I firmly believe that God‘s precise will was done that day. The problem was naïve, self-centered Chuck Thompson. He was simply too stupid and spiritually unaware of the Creator‘s perfect will. What I first believed would be the major trial of my ww74 life, turned out to be the ultimate thrill of my life.

Unfortunately, faithless uncertainty darkened my mind that day when I first found out my wife was pregnant. I was downright dumbstruck, the word ―down‖ being the prime sentiment of my feelings. Like a mosaic picture of mixed feelings and emotions, I felt happy and depressed at the same time. I vividly remember telling my best friend, Tim Spurgeon, the glum news that Susan was pregnant.

LIFE Experience Side Note Here are pictures of another mother giving birth from a British documentary.

The beautiful experience of childbirth that everyone talks about was anything but that, certainly not at first. My experience was extremely unnerving. Again, like the old TV show , this event was filled with great mystery and overwhelming feelings of uncertainty. As soon as the tiny body of my daughter was pulled out of her mother‘s womb, I was perplexed. This, of course, is the same womb from which not too long ago a violent flood of water and who knows what, had just spurted out. This experience left a very uneasy, even frightened expression on my face. This shocked, disconcerted look would have alarmed and scared my wife. Desperately trying to hide my expression, I was grateful she did not see me. After pulling my daughter out, suddenly she began to move around strange and mysteriously. This moment was very surreal and eerie. Literally, she moved in a very unsettling, slow robotic motion. Her head was teetertottering from side to side, with her little arms and legs simultaneously moving. She started to cry out slowly as her head

was winding back and forth in slow motion. I wanted to cry out like in the old movie, ―It‘s alive. It‘s alive!‖ She was wet, sticky with slime all over her body from the top of her head to her toes. Needless to say, it was not a pretty sight. Now, okay, extremely ignorant and naïve as I was, this being my first child, I certainly did not know what to expect, but I guarantee you, there was no way in the world that I could ever have expected this. I remember Bill Cosby in one of his comedy skits about his daughter at the time of delivery, said he thought she was underdone, not cooked enough. My little baby was going through a metamorphosis right before my eyes, like a model changing into many different outfits during a fashion show, appearing in a variety of looks, various forms and colors. Every 19 minutes (a cycle of time), she looked different. Seeing the amazing transformation take place which the Creator designed for my baby girl was overwhelming. And

ww77

This reminds me of the story from Job in the scripture
45 45

The Things That Matter Are The Things That Really Matter

ww78

when Job‘s blessings were restored by God, the Supreme giver of gifts, in such an extraordinary way. God blessed Job once again with Verse 13 ―...seven sons and three daughters.‖ Job 42:13; New International Version. This blessing was unique in a very special, personal way because, as the scripture says, Job‘s daughters were very beautiful. So beautiful in fact, Verse 15 ―Nowhere in all the land were there found women as beautiful as Job‘s daughters...‖ Job 42:15; New International Version. Of course, as human beings, we live a physical, chemical existence. Our bodies wind down like a clock. The Almighty says all beauty is fleeting. A profound scripture in God‘s Word is, Verse 30 ―Charm is deceptive, and beauty is fleeting; but a woman who fears the Lord, is to be praised.‖ Proverbs 31:30; New International Version. Everyone should know it is certainly true that beauty is in the eyes of the beholder. But at this special time in history, the eyes of all who saw the loveliness of the daughters of Job, all claimed to be beholders of their beauty. And so it is the same phenomena with the bles-sed daughter that I‘ve been given from the Lord. All who know and see her agree. And

She is truly a precious blessing from the Lord. Even the circumstances by which I was inspired to name her was, in a sense, uniquely special. Five years before she was born, I saw the movie starring Joseph Cotten and Jennifer Jones.

It‘s a story about the lives of two people and the timelines coming together from one generation to another. Man meets woman from another time and their lives intertwine. It‘s a kind of crazy, cosmic storyline but it‘s made very beautifully. I was inspired and moved seeing it for the first time in 1982. I told my friend, Dexter Wilson, who watched the film with me, ―When I have a daughter, I‘m going to name her Jenni.‖ And so I did. The character of Jennie in this film was so mysterious but at the same time her personality was absolutely adorable. And God blessed that name to fit my daughter perfectly. She also is quite adorable with a high level of maturity which makes her mysterious. Her beautiful head is covered with long, curly hair which reminds me of a lion. This is what inspired my endearing initials for her, MPLC, which means MY PRINCESS LION CUB.

She was born in 1987, and the current year is 2006; nevertheless, the age I call her which is ―twelveteen‖ sounds sufficiently sweet to me. On special occasions, I call her Talitha koum. This name comes from the Bible. Christ raised a young girl who had recently died back to life. Verse 41 ―He took her by the hand and said to her, ‗Talitha koum!‘ (which means, ‗Little girl, I say to you, get up!‘).‖ Verse 42 ―Immediately the girl stood up and walked around (she was twelve years old). At this they were completely astonished.‖ Mark 5:41-42; New International Version. Did you catch it? Talitha koum means little girl rise up, and she was twelve years old. Take note all of you who consider yourselves young ladies or older: the Messiah Himself knowing exactly the age of the daughter (which was 12), called her little girl. Please note: Little girls should never get tattoos and run around in a promiscuous manner! Not even old girls should commit such indecent acts. Unfortunately, this inappropriate, lewd behavior is exactly what‘s taking place today. So, others who want my daughter to be old like the old woman who lived in the shoe, attempting to rob me of my baby girl with their fuzzy math, need to think again. Taking her to get her driver‘s license was a very traumatic time for me. I cried like a baby. I couldn‘t help it; I couldn‘t hold it back. Of course, I didn‘t let her see me. After she took the test, she came and told me the sobering news— she passed. Being overwhelmed with mixed emotions, I didn‘t

know what to do. My heart sank and rejoiced at the same time. The tears just flowed down my face like a heavy but refreshing rain. I recalled how she wanted to play tea party all the time. When I came home she would say, ―Daddy, come have a little tea party. I‘m going to have a tea party, come ww81 play tea party with me.‖ I realized too late that this special time had passed, a time which I would love to visit now and play tea party with my daughter.

No matter where you are on the face of the earth, your father will come and play tea party with his baby girl, with his MPLC, his PRECIOUS LION CUB, the daughter blessed to us, the daughter given to us by the Lord.
Neil Cavuto of FOX News expressed this very same sentiment regarding his precious daughter.

Today‘s Wall Street Journal has an article on ‗Dads Afraid to Hug Their Daughters.‘ I kid you not! Political correctness has gone so far that a lot of dads want to cool it on the hugs, that they‘re afraid that physical contact will be misconstrued. What? Since when is hugging your kid politically incorrect? Look, I‘m Italian. I‘m a hugger; it comes with the territory and I‘m a mush, and for my daughter probably an embarrassment. But you know what? I don‘t care and all you dads out there, you shouldn‘t care either. Since when is it bad form to give your little girl a big hug?

He played like a mad monster in the middle linebacker position—the same position Mike Singletary played for the Chicago Bears. Singletary‘s fierce, intense eyes horrified opposing players as he stared at them across the scrimmage line.

I imagine many players felt the very next play would end in disaster. Well, this was the look from Mr. Wilson and that was the overwhelming sentiment opposing players had as Dexter dominated that position. Never in all my days of football— whether playing the game myself or seeing the pros on TV, has a player literally placed himself on every single tackle in the game. Never in all my forty-two years of life have I seen such a monumental feat, except the days when I saw Dexter Wilson play.

The Plain Truth magazine opened my eyes. This publication, written and published by the Worldwide Church of God, sparked my interest. The truth jump-started my desire to learn the Word of God and inspired me to read and study my Bible like never before. This spiritual transformation throughout the years has proven to be the biggest blessing I have ever received. This spiritual publication of truth was provoking. A significant piece of the puzzle missing from my life was now in place. A mind-opening awareness inspired me to strive to walk a righteous, spiritual walk, taking a Godly path. Striving to please the Eternal was more rewarding than the wrong way
64 64

Walk The Path Set By Your Maker

I was going. Walking the unrighteous carnal walk, talking the ungodly talk, foolishly pleasing myself, only made me feel rotten. Reading and studying God‘s Word provided me with genuine spiritual understanding. It gave me a new way of thinking, transformed my mind, and replaced worldly wisdom with Godly wisdom. Obeying God‘s Word gave me the tools to unlearn falsehoods and replace them with real truth. In the movie , the prophetic words of Yoda were, ―You must unlearn what you have learned.‖ The Bible literally helps you look at things through the spiritual, righteous eyes of God instead of the physical, wicked eyes of men. Much more is written on this subject in , under the subtitle . Studying God‘s Word helped me to walk the straight and narrow. Living this way of life has given me an irreplaceable, spiritual ability of discernment, enriching me with knowledge and insight beyond my years. I am imbued with a good understanding, and have acquired physical and spiritual aspects of life which I did not possess before. Keeping the commands of God as a way of life gives you this gift of understanding. The Creator says, Verse 10 ―The fear of the Lord is the beginning of wisdom; A good understanding have all those
65 65

Walk The Path Set By Your Maker

who do His commandments. His praise endures forever.‖ Psalm 111:10; New King James Version. This literally set me on the path of righteousness—not that I was righteous, but at least I was set on the right path, right track, being led in the right direction towards God‘s righteousness. Again, it must be stressed, studying God‘s Word helps and empowers anyone to walk the straight and narrow. Repeating Verse 13 ―Enter through the narrow gate. For wide is the gate and broad is the road that leads to destruction, and many enter through it.‖ Matthew 7:13; New International Version. Most humanity is currently on this path of destruction. Being blessed to find the genuine path of God is one thing, but walking that path and maintaining that righteous walk is another thing altogether. There is a line in the movie , which sums up this understanding quite nicely. Morpheus, played by Laurence Fishburne, was admonishing Neo, Keanu Reeves, when his faith was wavering. He said,

―Neo, sooner or later you‘re going to realize just as I did, that there‘s a difference between knowing the path and walking the path.‖ This is where spiritual fellowship with people who
66 66

are like-minded significantly comes into play. Their Christlike relationship role in your life is crucial to your continued spiritual growth. This is why the Eternal says, Verse 25 ―Let us not give up meeting together, as some are in the habit of doing, but let us encourage one another—and all the more as you see the Day approaching.‖ Hebrews 10:25; New International Version. Without the assembly of those who are striving to walk in the way of God, the light of God which should be shining in you brightly, may fade to darkness. Manifestation of the Almighty‘s sharp, clear way of thinking and living, ww93 dulls away if not maintained.

Also, within the congregation of God are many with whom I enjoy this sweet, spiritual fellowship as well. And if that wasn‘t enough, I was blessed with another special friend from above. My friend, Tim Spurgeon, is a vital asset to my spiritual growth in life. Without this friendship, if today was the day the Lord weighed me on the scales, I would truly indeed be found wanting.

Side Note Eternal Friend From The Eternal Tim is the spiritual partner God has given me to sharpen His spiritual iron within me. Righteous iron is sharpened quite efficiently with Godly precision because Tim Spurgeon is a man of God. He is a Christ-like individual who strives to live the ways of the Creator, constantly maintaining the fruit of the Eternal‘s holy spirit. Verse 22 ―But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness,‖ Verse 23 ―gentleness and self-control. Against such things there is no law.‖ Galatians 5:22-23; New International Version. An eternal friend understands how immensely important it is to produce the fruit of our Creator. This is just one of the many essential reasons why it is important to have him as a friend. It is extremely crucial in everyone‘s life to have someone to talk to. A person you really relate to and they relate to you just as well. I‘m not talking about just having a listening partner, but someone who listens and pays close attention to everything you say, a friend who is a close confidant, who really values what you tell them. So much so, they take it to heart, even if they don‘t immediately understand what you are telling them. Out of love for you, they won‘t simply dismiss what you say from their mind and forget about it.

Friend From The Lord

As an example, Christ‘s mother didn‘t understand what Christ was saying when He told her, Verse 49 ―… Didn‘t you know I had to be in my Father‘s house?‖ Luke 2:49; New International Version. But the scripture clearly states, Verse 51 ―...His mother treasured all these things in her heart.‖ Luke 2:51; New International Version. A mother‘s love is the highest love physical/carnal mankind can offer. So precious a commodity this mother‘s love is, without it, life of all mankind would not be worth living. The love of God, the complete, perfect love from our Creator, of course, is far better. And one of the reasons the Almighty‘s love is much greater, is simply because it‘s pure. The Eternal‘s love is not limited by the frailties of human nature. The selfish characteristics in human nature cause us to be a respecter of persons diluting the love we possess and making it far less effective; however, on an individual, humanistic level, a mother‘s love is what we all desire to have. Love from one‘s mother fulfills those personal child-like desires of being cared for. This reminds me of the profound lyrics by the late Nat King Cole, “The greatest love you‟ll ever learn is to love and be loved in return.” That is the inherent desire of every ww95 man, woman, and child on the face of the earth. This is why

As you grow up, your attentions and activities naturally drive you closer to your friends and peers. When you spend more time with others outside your immediate family, you need a close personal friend. Not just any friend who is

merely an acquaintance, but

ww98

. And my personal definition of a best friend starts with the fundamental understanding that you are his or her best friend as well, like a mutual engagement or a marriage. The husband is married to the wife and the wife is married to the husband, with an equal or close admiration for each other—you experience each other‘s lives, sharing the good times and the bad times. From joys and griefs with the many lessons learned traveling up and down ww97 the high hills and low valleys of life, . Sharing a higher united wisdom with each other is the key which you receive from above. This is a gift from the Creator who brought you together in the first place. This is the essential ingredient for a successful, beneficial best friendship,

To gain full carte blanche benefits from this all important union, your best friend must be from the Lord. Now, you might ask, ―How do you know whether this is a friend from God or not?‖ The answer is simple. If this special friend of ww99 yours is following the ways of God, then he is of God. And The Almighty plainly says in His Word, Verse 16 ―By their fruit you will recognize them. Do people pick grapes from thorn bushes, or figs from thistles?‖ Matthew 7:16; New International Version. Again, I say this is essential, it is an ingredient you must ww100 have.
70 70

Friend From The Lord

Your relationship will be starving, lacking the good and balanced nutrition from the fruit of God‘s Holy ww101 Spirit.

The higher percentage of the Creator‘s spiritual fruit your friend possesses, the purer, Godly nutrition you will receive from them. The essential ingredients of that fruit again are, Verse 22 ―...love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness,‖ Verse 23 ―gentleness and self-control. Against such things there is no law.‖ Galatians 5:22-23; New International Version. This frees your friendship from bondage to grow in the grace and the knowledge of the Eternal. No longer hampered by the sinful nature of your lives, you‘re both dedicated to striving to live your lives free from sin. Now, of course, this doesn‘t mean you are free from sin, it simply means you are striving to avoid sin, striving to live a righteous life. Let us briefly go back to the scripture, Verse 22 ―But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness,‖ Verse 23 ―gentleness and selfcontrol. Against such things there is no law.‖ Galatians 5:2223; New International Version. There is no penalty against these fruitful attributes of God. Any righteous act that you commit has no penalty because there is no law against what‘s good. When you have a friend who is committed to live in this way, this is a tremendous benefit. Verse 24 ―Those who belong to Christ Jesus have crucified the sinful nature with its pas71 71

Friend From The Lord

sions and desires.‖ Galatians 5:24; New International Version. When your best friend is striving to live a righteous life, they become a light and example that you can look up to. And when you are living in , they can look up to you. As the old saying goes, ―There is strength in numbers.‖ There will be no boundaries to what you can learn from one another. will teach, guide, and direct you together as you both grow in His grace and knowledge. Understanding the need to grow in grace and knowledge is essential. This way of living places us firmly on the spiritual foundation where our Creator has always intended mankind to be: maintaining the Almighty‘s way of life as His Godly offspring. Teaching our own offspring (children) to be Godly, spiritually and systematically sustains God-fearing attributes in our children. Character from on high continues to grow increasingly as our offspring matures. A spiritual chain reaction starts by maintaining His faithful ways as we grow in Godly love with our mates as His Word plainly says, Verse 15 ―Has not the Lord made them one? In flesh and spirit they are his. And why one? Because he was seeking Godly offspring. So guard yourself in your spirit, and do not break faith with the wife of your youth.‖ Malachi 2:15; New International Version. Life is difficult and we all need help, we need a lot of help. Most people think they need physical help, meaning physical things. Usually, these physical things are summed up as having more money, perhaps a better job to earn more income, or more space, a bigger house, a better car, a car that looks and fits the lifestyle they think they should have, or perhaps they feel they deserve.

All pathetic humankind must overcome themselves. A prophetic statement in the Bible is, ―You are the man!‖ This statement was directed to King David when the prophet Nathan was sent by God to tell him about his sins. The reason God needed to send Nathan to reveal his sins was because King David was spiritually blind. He was blinded by his own wicked ways. Compromising and leaning on his own understanding, his own strength, David sinned greatly against . Verse 1 ―The Lord sent Nathan to David. When he came to him, he said, ‗There were two men in a certain town, one rich and the other poor.‘‖ Verse 2 ―The rich man had a very large number of sheep and cattle,‖ Verse 3 ―but the poor man had nothing except one little ewe lamb he had bought. He raised it, and it grew up with him and his children. It shared his food, drank from his cup and even slept in his arms. It was like a daughter to him.‖ Verse 4 ―Now a traveler came to the rich man, but the rich man refrained from taking one of his own sheep or

cattle to prepare a meal for the traveler who had come to him. Instead, he took the ewe lamb that belonged to the poor man and prepared it for the one who had come to him.‖ Verse 5 ―David burned with anger against the man and said to Nathan, ‗As surely as the Lord lives, the man who did this deserves to die!‖ Verse 6 ―He must pay for that lamb four times over, because he did such a thing and had no pity.‖ Verse 7 ―Then Nathan said to David, ‗You are the man! This is what the Lord, the God of Israel, says: ―I anointed you king over Israel, and I delivered you from the hand of Saul.‖ Verse 8 ―I gave your master‘s house to you, and your master‘s wives into your arms. I gave you the house of Israel and Judah. And if all this had been too little, I would have given you even more.‖ Verse 9 ―Why did you despise the word of the Lord by doing what is evil in his eyes? You struck down Uriah the Hittite with the sword and took his wife to be your own. You killed him with the sword of the Ammonites.‖ Verse 10 ―Now, therefore, the sword will never depart from your house, because you despised me and took the wife of Uriah the Hittite to be your own.‖ Verse 11 ―This is what the Lord says: ‗Out of your own household I am going to bring calamity upon you. Before your very eyes I will take your wives and give them to one who is close to you, and he will lie with your wives in broad daylight.‘‖ Verse 12 ―‗You did it in secret, but I will do this thing in broad daylight before all Israel.‘‖ Verse 13 ―Then David said to Nathan, ‗I have sinned against the Lord…‘‖ 2 Samuel 12:1-13; New International Version. This story is very significant because King David could not see himself as the real problem. He could see clearly the
75 75

sin of someone else but he could not see his own. He even had the nerve to burn with anger concerning the man he assumed Nathan was telling him about. David also went so far as to pronounce a death sentence upon him, Verse 5 ―As surely as the Lord lives, the man who did this deserves to die!‖ 2 Samuel 12:5; New International Version. In the New King James Version, ―the man who has done this shall surely die!‖ Moreover, he said, Verse 6 ―He must pay for that lamb four times over, because he did such a thing and had no pity.‖ 2 Samuel 12:6; New International Version. This is simply remarkable. He had no clue, no inkling, he was passing sentence upon himself. David was blinded by his own sins. Deceived in his own mind, he secretly justified all the wicked wrongs he himself was committing. The King was living large within his secret sins for so long, he didn‘t see sending this innocent man to certain death was murder; furthermore, this was a cowardly murder, a hideous sin in the eyes of the Eternal. All mankind must understand everyone living, past and present, on the face of the earth is a murderer. All human beww104 ings have had a hand in killing Jesus Christ.

Because of our own personal sins, everyone is that sadistic soldier, a world of sinners rebelling against their Creator, crucifiers of Jesus the Christ. That‘s why all must reww105 pent from their evil ways.

Punishing judgment finally came upon King David just as judgment will come to all who do not repent. All examples in God‘s Word, especially this one regarding the sins of King David, are there for our example warning us and giving us parental guidance and direction. Mankind must make right choices and right decisions. Choices that enhance the quality of our lives are the desire of the Creator instead of follies that leave our lives in misery, or take life from us altogether. No one needs to make these same wretched mistakes to learn. The saying, ―Experience is the best teacher‖ is misleadww106 ing.

However, unfortunately, experience is a very effective teacher. For example, receiving a broken arm because you foolishly jumped from your garage rooftop instead of wisely using a ladder. Or, receiving a broken marriage because you deceitfully thought your sinful, adulterous ways would not find you out. Obeying your Creator and avoiding foolish, selfish acts of sin is far better. In addition to this divine way, is to have a God-fearing friend, a friend like Tim. This friend will tell you when you are spiritually off-track, that what you‘re doing is foolish or how you‘re ww107 acting is stupid. Christ corrected Peter. He rebuked him in front of all the disciples when

Peter didn‘t exercise faith as he should have. Verse 31 ―He then began to teach them that the Son of Man must suffer many things and be rejected by the elders, chief priests and teachers of the law, and that He must be killed and after three days rise again.‖ Verse 32 ―He spoke plainly about this, and Peter took Him aside and began to rebuke Him.‖ Verse 33 ―But when Jesus turned and looked at his disciples, He rebuked Peter. ‗Get behind me, Satan!‘ He said. ‗You do not have in mind the things of God, but the things of men.‖ Mark 8:31-33; New International Version. Of course, Christ loved Peter very, very much. And this is how the Almighty showed him His love. In this same way, we should show love to others, to family and friends, no matter how mad or bent out of shape they may become. The Eternal‘s love for you is greater than any anger that you might display. Knowing you were told the truth about yourself, no anger should exist, only thankfulness. This is what it means to have a friend like Tim. This is what it means when God says, Verse 24 ―A man of many companions may come to ruin, but there is a friend who sticks closer than a brother.‖ Proverbs 18:24; New International Version. It is crucial for everyone to have a God-fearing friend like Tim. Again, not just someone telling you when you look good but also when you look bad. When insensitivity and rude behavior dictates your way, that‘s the time you need a friend telling you to go pray. When godless actions make you look stupid, like using foul language or being proud and full of ww108 yourself, that is the day

The Almighty says, Verse 6 ―Wounds from a friend can be trusted, but an enemy multiplies kisses.‖ Proverbs 27:6; New International Version. If King David had Tim as a friend, he would have given him a warning before his unfaithful folly. If you sin against this man‘s wife and take her to be your own, you will only be sinning against yourself. Instead of the blessings you desire in your life, you will receive curses, and the curses will never leave you. Now, of course, there are many godless people who do not fear the Lord who say, ―What if I'm not around my friend? What if this friend helping me to walk the straight and narrow is not around?‖ The answer is: Verse 10 ―The fear of the Lord is the beginning of wisdom; all who follow His precepts have good understanding. To Him belongs eternal ww110 praise.‖ Psalm 111:10; New International Version. This is when you become blind, deception takes place and darkness covers your eyes to the truth. This sinful death trap is what happened to David. Never allow yourself to be in a situation permitting wicked sin to rule over good sense. David became too comfortable being the King and a physical King at that, not the spiritual one he needed to be and was called to be. He lost his idenww111 tity.

Dream Side Note I was traveling in Berlin, Germany, walking down the famous street called . Beautiful, tall women were everywhere—ladies dressed in immaculate uniforms with boots that came all the way up past their knees, shaping their legs. These beautiful, blonde women dotted the landscape on every corner. Finally, I stopped and asked someone, ―What are all these uniform policewomen doing on every corner?‖ Laughing at me they said, ―Those are not policewomen; they‘re prostitutes. They‘re simply at work, standing at their post waiting for customers.‖ I couldn‘t believe it. It just blew me away. I had no idea. Unfortunately, it made a very wrong, strong impression on me. I started to wonder what it might be like to be with one of those mysterious women, the Berlin ladies of the night. That night I had a dream. It was so clear and vivid, I can remember the details perfectly. The dream begins with me and one of those women of the night in a hotel room.

Still very frightened, I lay petrified, thinking on what just took place. Terrified by this vision, I pondered how very close I came to ruining my entire life. The thought of how I was about to destroy the beautiful, blessed marriage I was given by God was overwhelming. Blissful love I shared with the love of my life would now be a blighted stain for life. This tragedy would leave a scar that could never be fully repaired; furthermore, I realized other unthinkable disastrous effects would follow. Our sweet, beautiful daughter would be caught in the middle of this broken mess because her foolish father was unfaithful. Coming to my senses, realizing it wasn‘t real, I was elated it was only a dream. But it didn‘t seem like a dream; it seemed very, very real. So vividly real, I will never, ever forget it. The lessons this vision taught me and the fear of God instilled in me, remain with me to this very day. When I returned to the States I told Tim the dream. I confessed my sin. That‘s right!

And most people who have come and gone were sorry for their sins and confused their regrets with repentance. You sorrowed to repentance. It led you to do something different than you were doing. For you were made sorry after a Godly manner. Your sorrow expressed itself in a Godly manner, not a natural manner. There‘s nothing godly in human beings unless they have the spirit of God.

sorrow works repentance to salvation, not to repent it, not to be repented of:..‖ It is a state of mind that means that you are sufficiently sorry that you change and the change involves a decision not to go back to sin. Not only does this kind of sorrow lead to a decision to turn around, but it leads to a decision never to go back the other way. Now, is that clear? I hope I‘m getting at the point which is the ultimate issue. I‘m not finished yet. The sorrow of the world works death because you‘re sorry that God brings the penalty on you. You‘re sorry for the consequences but you surely like the temporary pleasures too. And you have decided you would like to try God‘s way for awhile. But you have never decided, you will never go back into sin. And that leads to death.‖

The defilement starts when you are having unlawful sex with someone other than your marriage mate. Whether it is your bed or not, that sinful act is defiled.

Many American farmers abuse their own land, raping the soil year after year without keeping the seventh year rest commanded by the Creator. Verse 4 ―But in the seventh year the land is to have a Sabbath of rest, a Sabbath to the Lord. Do not sow your fields or prune your vineyards.‖ Leviticus 25:4; New International Version. Most farmers must pump multiple thousands of insecticide poisons, spraying chemicals over their crops. All this trouble, toil, and expense just to get a rise of growth from their crops—something which should be a natural reaction as God intended. Foolishly, mankind has placed themselves sexually in that same expensive, troublesome predicament, having the unnatural need to ingest chemical concoctions just to get a rise (pun intended), something which the Creator intended to be natural.

We have rejected our Maker, the Creator of heaven and earth, the sea and the land. We have cursed ourselves and soon, the only creation legacy attributable to man will be a hole in the heavens, a big, giant, cancer-causing ozone hole.

Considering the close relationship the United States has with the Philippines, especially since World War II, I regard our work together as God has blessed it, to be one of the more important relationships I have with any business partner worldwide. Actually, she‘s much more than a business partner; I consider her a dear friend. At lunch we had an interesting conversation about God. Before the meal, we said a prayer, giving thanks for the meal and for God‘s guidance and direction. This wasn‘t some spectacle of religion in front of other people; we simply bowed our heads in silence. At the end of my prayer, in my mind I said, ―In Jesus‘ name, I pray all these things and ask Your blessing. Amen.‖ When I looked over at my partner, she started to make the symbol of the cross over her body, along with some other religious gestures. So, I asked her, ―What does all that mean? Why do you do that? Where do you get it from? That‘s not in the Bible, so why do you do it? And since it‘s not in God‘s holy Word, why would you think God is going to honor it?‖ Note to the reader: Please don‘t get angry and disgusted with me. I did not ask all these things at once, endless questions without a breath. This was simply the course of topics discussed throughout the conversation. She paused for a bit, looking puzzled and confused. I continued, ―God hears you based on the sincerity of your words, not the symbols you make after them. I would think the Almighty would be displeased, because the symbols that you choose to honor as a religious practice come from pagan origins. Most common religious symbols are based on

Yet, you‘re supposed to be asking the Eternal for His favor, His blessing, His guidance, and His direction. You‘re doing the very opposite, topping it off with a symbolic paganized gesture at the end.‖ Now, I realize this is a bold and outlandish statement for some, perhaps offending 90% or more of the people who are reading this book. I‘m sorry, my objective and purpose is not to offend anyone, individually or a collective organization.

No one on the face of the earth has any excuse. It doesn‘t matter how many false teachings are out there.

tions none of which gives us any legitimate excuse for continuing in those abominable ways. Blind ways reject, suffocate, and kill true knowledge. The Almighty says, Verse 6 ―My people are destroyed for lack of knowledge. Because you have rejected knowledge, I also will reject you from being priest for Me; Because you have forgotten the law of your God, I also will forget your children.‖ Hosea 4:6; New King James Version. Most people, no matter where they are on the face of the earth, who claim to be Christian, have some access to the scriptures, God‘s holy Word. The scriptures give clear-cut guidance and direction along with many examples of what to do and what not to do, how to worship God and how not to worship God. The Almighty also gives clear warnings of adding anything to these specific teachings or taking anything from them. Verse 18 ―I warn everyone who hears the words of the prophecy of this book: If anyone adds anything to them, God will add to him the plagues described in this book.‖ Verse 19 ―And if anyone takes words away from this book of prophecy, God will take away from him his share in the tree of life and in the holy city, which are described in this book.‖ Revelation 22:18-19; New International Version. Christ‘s own original disciples knew this very well. They desired to worship Him in spirit and in truth and not in the false ways of the Pharisees and Sadducees around them who worshipped God for show. This is the reason why they asked Christ to teach them how to pray. Verse 2 ―So He said to them, ‗When you pray, say: Our Father in heaven, Hallowed be Your name. Your kingdom come. Your will be done On

earth as it is in heaven.‘‖ Verse 3 ―‗Give us day by day our daily bread.‘‖ Verse 4 ―‗And forgive us our sins, For we also forgive everyone who is indebted to us. And do not lead us into temptation, But deliver us from the evil one.‘‖ Luke 11:2-4; New King James Version. Now, there you have a straight, direct teaching from Christ Himself. All in red letters. God in the flesh on the earth. Christ gave them this simple outline of how they should pray. But, there is nothing in the scripture about making any kind of symbols on the body. There‘s no commandment or slight suggestion to form a sign of a cross, the star of David or holding two fingers up in the air forming a V-shape, symbolizing world peace .Nowhere, never throughout the Bible has it ever been required. Having this basic understanding and these truthful scriptures in mind is why I asked her, ―What are you doing? Why do you do that? Where do you get it from? It is not from God‘s Word, so why would He honor something that is made up? They are false symbols, symbolizing false religions and a false god.‖ Again, Verse 9 ―...Teaching as doctrines the commandments of men.‖ Matthew 15:9; New King James Version. Needing to justify and defend herself, as we all humanly like to do when we feel we‘re under attack, she said, ―We have our own way of praying and worshipping God. Here in the Philippines, we have our special customs and a traditional way we worship. It‘s our own traditional beliefs and ways of doing things.‖ She feels she has an added plus by praying to Mother Mary, the mother of Jesus, and petitioning her with a recited prayer of the Catholic Church. It reads: Hail Mary,

I realize this particular prayer and these symbols are honored by millions around the globe; however, this prayer recited by the world has been made up by the world, pieced together as a prayer of importance to pray. But the prayer has nothing to do with asking for favor or a petition to God. Parts of this traditional prayer are from Luke. Here is the real background truth. Starting in Verse 26 ―Now in the sixth month the angel Gabriel was sent by God to a city of Galilee named Nazareth,‖ Verse 27 ―to a virgin betrothed to a man whose name was Joseph, of the house of David. The virgin‘s name was Mary.‖ Verse 28 ―And having come in, the angel said to her, ‗Rejoice, highly favored one, the Lord is with you; blessed are you among women!‘‖ Luke 1:26-28; New King James Version.

This means Jesus‘ mother remains dead and is not roaming throughout the heavens. Mary, the mother of Jesus, is not now, nor has at any time appeared in the sky.

you think after Christ was crucified, Mary, the mother of Jesus, died, and after that she was resurrected. So you say to me, how do you know, Mr. Unthinkable Fall of America, she‘s not in heaven? First of all, I‘m not basing my knowledge on some false sentiment in my heart or traditions thought up by man. I‘m basing this truth on what scripture actually says. Verse 15 ―According to the Lord‘s own Word, we tell you that we who are still alive, who are left till the coming of the Lord, will certainly not precede those who have fallen asleep.‖ 1 Thessalonians 4:15; New International Version. Therefore, Mary will not rise from the dead before any of those men of old in the Lord. And we certainly can‘t say, ―Well, they all rose after Christ died and went to heaven and she rose with them afterwards,‖ because Christ also speaks about the time frame, Verse 16 ―For the Lord Himself will come down from heaven, with a loud command, with the voice of the archangel and with the trumpet call of God, and the dead in Christ will rise first.‖ 1 Thessalonians 4:16; New International Version. This refers to the second coming of Christ which has not happened yet; therefore, all of them are still dead and buried. This next passage is very important. This scripture admonishes us not to be ignorant. Let‘s go back to the beginning of Verse 13 ―Brothers, we do not want you to be ignorant about those who fall asleep, or to grieve like the rest of men, who have no hope.‖ Verse 14 ―We believe that Jesus died and rose again and so we believe that God will bring with Jesus those who have fallen asleep in Him.‖ Verse 15 ―According to
111 111

the Lord‘s own Word, we tell you that we who are still alive, who are left till the coming of the Lord, will certainly not precede those who have fallen asleep.‖ Verse 16 ―For the Lord Himself will come down from heaven, with a loud command, with the voice of the archangel and with the trumpet call of God, and the dead in Christ will rise first.‖ Verse 17 ―After that, we who are still alive and are left will be caught up together with them in the clouds, notice this passage doesn‘t say going to heaven, (continuing) to meet the Lord in the air. And so we will be with the Lord forever.‖ 1 Thessalonians 4:13-17; New International Version. What does all this mean? It sets the time frame for all of these things. Christ‘s second coming is when these people of God will be raised. And that time has not taken place some two thousand years after Christ‘s crucifixion and resurrection, until this day, the time that I am putting these words to this page, January 26, 2006. Today is Monday, 5:10 PM, Pacific West Coast Time, Pasadena, California, 91105. Again, Let us not remain ignorant of God‘s Word. When Peter was addressing the crowd on the day of Pentecost, when God‘s Holy Spirit came, Peter said, Verse 29 ―Brothers, I can tell you confidently that the patriarch David died and was buried, and his tomb is here to this day.‖ Verse 30 ―But he was a prophet and knew that God had promised him on oath that he would place one of his descendants on His throne.‖ Verse 31 ―Seeing what was ahead, he spoke of the resurrection of the Christ, that he was not abandoned to the

grave, nor did his body see decay.‖ Verse 32 ―God has raised this Jesus to life, and we are all witnesses of the fact.‖ Verse 33 ―Exalted to the right hand of God, he has received from the Father the promised Holy Spirit and has poured out what you now see and hear.‖ Verse 34 ―For David did not ascend to heaven, and yet he said, ―‗The Lord said to my Lord: ‗Sit at my right hand‘‖ Verse 35 ―‗until I make your enemies a footstool for your feet.‘‖ Acts 2:29-35; New International Version. On this day of Pentecost, Christ had already been crucified and resurrected. Yet Peter is still talking about King David remaining dead and buried, awaiting the resurrection, his resurrection when Christ will return at His second coming, to raise King David and everyone who has died in the faith. That is the time frame. And that time frame has not yet been fulfilled. One final proof Paul gave that those who have died are today still dead and awaiting the resurrection, is a horrifying scenario concerning what would happen if Christ was not raised from the dead. Verse 17 ―And if Christ has not been raised, your faith is futile; you are still in your sins.‖ Verse 18 ―Then those also who have fallen asleep in Christ are lost.‖ 1 Corinthians 15:17-18; New International Version. What? Did you catch that, did verse 18 slap you in the face? Why would those who have fallen asleep in Christ be lost if they were already flying through the heavens? How could that be possible? Perplexed? Penny for your thoughts. Understand: dying in Christ means those saints lived doing what was right and good and pleasing in God‘s sight beww153 fore they died.

Enduring to the end with the help of Christ grants you the everlasting gift of eternal life. That is the simple answer regarding those who have fallen asleep and are still asleep (dead) awaiting the first resurrection at the second coming of Christ. If these iron-clad scriptures are not proof enough confirming all those who died in the faith are still dead and buried awaiting their resurrection, soberly that simply proves one ww154 other thing: Perhaps, it is simply not your time to understand these lessons of spiritual milk; however, ignorance of the truth does not give anyone an excuse to remain ignorant. Remember this scripture: Verse 6 ―My people are destroyed for lack of knowledge. Because you have rejected knowledge, I also will reject you from being priest for Me; Because you have forgotten the law of your God, I also will forget your children.‖ Hosea 4:6; New King James Version. And I tell you the truth regarding this ignorance, the ministers themselves who teach the opposite of the truth also have no excuse for their ignorance. Verse 10 ―His watchmen are blind, They are all ignorant; They are all dumb dogs, They cannot bark; Sleeping, lying down, loving to slumber.‖ Verse 11 ―Yes, they are greedy dogs Which never have enough. And they are shepherds Who cannot understand; They all look to their own way, Every one for his own gain, From his own territory.‖ Isaiah 56:10-11; New King James Version.

Truth Is Better Than Emotion

Briefly back to the subject of the Hail Mary Prayer. I recall the movie , starring the actor Tommy Lee Jones. There was a dramatic scene when passengers were trapped in the Los Angeles subway; burning hot lava was making its way to the passenger train, putting their lives in jeopardy. The rescue team was able to get all of the passengers off, all but one. Stan, one of the transportation officials, was the only one left carrying the last person on his shoulders. By this time lava had engulfed the train, before this transportation official could get off with the last passenger. The scene was very gripping and heart-wrenching because the rescue worker knew he could not jump far enough with this passenger on his shoulders. Horrified, walking through the train car to the back exit, he began to fervently pray: ―Hail Mary, full of grace, the Lord is with thee, blessed art thou amongst women, blessed is the fruit of thy womb Jesus…‖ and he repeated it over and over again.

Now yes, I realize, this is just a movie. But it is more than typical of what millions around the world might recite as a prayer when their lives are threatened. Let us imagine the scene is real. What do you think? Does God condemn him because he didn‘t know how to properly pray? He didn‘t obey

God and follow the outline prayer carefully addressed in God‘s holy Word. Does the Creator reject him because he mumbles out a worldly, customized prayer mixed with paganized symbolism? No. Verily, verily, I say unto you, the Omnipotent One who reigns supreme does not condemn him. The Almighty God is merciful, loving beyond measure and extremely patient. The Eternal‘s peace surpasses all understanding. The Ever-Living One makes enormous allowances for all of His creation‘s ignorance. But everyone must understand that in no way means we should remain ignorant. The Scriptures read: Verse 30 ―In the past God overlooked such ignorance, but now he commands all people everywhere to repent.‖ Acts 17:30; New International Version. And in another version, it reads, a little bolder: Verse 30 ―Truly, these times of ignorance God overlooked, but now commands all men everywhere to repent,..‖ Acts 17:30; New King James Version. No one has any excuse for lacking knowledge or being ignorant. Don‘t stress your vocal cords praying to those who are dead and cannot hear you. Nor should you waste your time and money seeking so-called psychics. Verse 19 ―When men tell you to consult mediums and spiritists, who whisper and mutter, should not a people inquire of their God? Why consult the dead on behalf of the living?‖ Isaiah 8:19; New International Version. Verse 5 ―…But the dead know nothing…‖ Ecclesiastes 9:5; New King James Version. Please listen carefully. When you are lost in the world, you should not foolishly continue to go in the wrong direction. If you‘re doing something wrong, you don‘t continue to do it.

Everyone who claims to be followers of Christ must do just that—follow Christ. Verse 6 ―Whoever claims to live in Him must walk as Jesus did.‖ 1 John 2:6; New International Version. Now, you can‘t get any plainer than that. People around the world— many who claim to know God and obey Him—have a definition of knowing God that is not the same definition the Eternal gives. Let us back up and see just what it means to know God. Verse 3 ―Now by this we know that we know Him, if we keep His commandments.‖ Verse 4 ―He who says, ‗I know Him,‘ and does not keep His commandments, is a liar, and the truth is not in him.‖ Verse 5 ―But whoever keeps His Word, truly the love of God is perfected in him. By this we know that we are in Him.‖ 1 John 2:3-5; New King James Version. The way of life you live must be the Eternal‘s way, the High way.

This understanding is like that old song, sung by Billy Preston . When your beliefs are based on falsehoods, they a r e completely in vain. It must be stressed again and again, Verse 9 ―...in vain they worship Me, Teaching as doctrines the commandments of men.‖ Matthew 15:9; New King James Version. Please understand, it must be repeated. Our ways do not matter; only God‘s ways matter. Our own customs and traditions don‘t matter; the way we feel, the way we see or look at things does not matter. Looking out of our own window has no value whatsoever. The visions we see from our own window are usually false, deceiving, misleading decepww160 tions of our own making.

It doesn‘t matter whether your customs, traditions, and practices are from America, England, or Rome. Your religion and your own religious ways mean nothing unless they are the ww161 express ways of God.

Now, if you are still under your own delusion, that doesn‘t matter. Not too long from now, the end-time prophecies of God will be fulfilled. The doors of unparalleled evil will be opened upon the United States and the rest of the world. This certain reality will hit everyone right in the face—those who are not righteously, spiritually prepared. It is essential for you to remember what Christ said in the parable regarding the wedding banquet about His return, Verse 25 ―Once the owner of the house gets up and closes the door, you will stand outside knocking and pleading, ‗Sir, open the door for us.‘ But he will answer, ‗I don‘t know you or where you come from.‘‖ Verse 26 ―Then you will say, ‗We ate and drank with you, and you taught in our streets.‘‖ Luke 13:25-26; New International Version. This parable is very serious. Christ is explaining about religious people, those begging Him to open the door. They claim to be His followers. Because of false religions, many have deceived themselves regarding their obedience, convinced all along that they were doing His will—when in reality, they were only obeying themselves. The scripture continues, Verse 27 ―But He will reply, ‗I don‘t know you or where you come from. Away from me, all you evildoers!‘‖ Verse 28 ―There will be weeping there, and gnashing of teeth, when you see Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob and all the prophets in the kingdom of God, but you yourselves thrown out.‖ Luke 13:27-28; New International Version. Foolishly, false worshippers feel they can continue to come as they are, deceiving themselves that Christ won‘t

mind. The truth is, a change must take place. The carnal nature must be replaced by the ww162 spiritual ways of God.

If we are striving in the ways of God, the Creator graces us to be ready for Christ‘s return wearing the proper wedding clothes. And to those of you who feel you can simply sneak in without the truth being detected revealing who you really are, the Almighty has this to say, Verse 11 ―But when the king came in to see the guests, he noticed a man there who was not wearing wedding clothes.‖ Verse 12 ―‗Friend,‘ he asked, ‗how did you get in here without wedding clothes?‘ The man was speechless.‖ Verse 13 ―Then the king told the attendants, ‗Tie him hand and foot, and throw him outside, into the darkness, where there will be weeping and gnashing of teeth.‘‖ Matthew 22:11-13; New International Version.
ww163

Any and all religions that are not worshipping the Almighty‘s way, in His spirit and His truth, are rejected religions. This sad status quo is not what the Father seeks. Verse 23 ―Yet a time is coming and has now come when the true worshipers will worship the Father in spirit and

The Almighty does not apologize nor compromise in any way. No compromising of the Eternal‘s Scriptures will be permitted. This locked-down, throw-away-the-key understanding is essential to your spiritual knowledge and growth— unrepented your eternal life will be hanging in the balance. This wisdom is the one vital thing you should understand before you‘re 22, certainly before the age of 42. And to those of you who are past this age without understanding, I strongly suggest you seriously get your spiritual house in order. The Eternal says, Verse 5 ―Get wisdom, get understanding; do not forget my words or swerve from them.‖ Verse 6 ―Do not forsake wisdom, and she will protect you; love her, and she will watch over you.‖ Verse 7 ―Wisdom is supreme; therefore get wisdom. Though it cost all you have, get understanding.‖ Proverbs 4:5-7; New International Version. Since our Creator commands us to ―Get wisdom. Though it cost all you have, get understanding,‖ let‘s focus on some serious spiritual food for thought. This wisdom and understanding is for everyone but also gives strong admonition for abortion advocates. There may be some half-truth regarding the birth of Christ surrounding the date of December 25th, certainly not the day He came out from the womb but perhaps the day He was conceived. Biblical scholars and historians armed with right knowledge have time framed the birth of Christ (the time He came forth from the womb) in late September or early October. This time frame is based on many historical facts, one being the seasonal changes which occur in the region at that time. Here is the direct biblical account,

Verse 8 ―And there were shepherds living out in the fields nearby, keeping watch over their flocks at night.‖ Luke 2:8; New International Version. Here are the true events that took place and the historical outdoors environment at the time Jesus was wrapped in cloth and placed in the manger. On December 25th, a cold, snowy, rainy season in the wintertime, you will not find shepherds out with their flocks sleeping in the fields. Common sense should tell you no shepherd in his right mind would do this. You can best believe by morning, they would be frozen stiff shepherds, perhaps dead in the snow or freezing rain. Note to the abortionist: If Jesus was conceived that day, December 25th, some 2000 years ago, and his mother decided to abort His life, Jesus could not have come forth some nine months later. The food for thought is this: you are not killing a conception, you are killing a life, a baby‘s life. The only way to stop this baby from growing and coming forth from the womb is to kill or murder that process.

Either way the process of growth is killed, flushed out—or shall I say in many horrific cases of abortion—sucked out. But I digress. At this trimester point within this book, we must stop and reflect. Outside forces from around the world have been selfishly busy. At the end of this very day, globally, over a hundred thousand lives have been cut short. These lives have been secretly silenced without any acknowledgement or recognition. Not a single international flag was lowered.

Audio MP3 #16 We have now come to an abrupt end with a killer conclusion. Perhaps, we should be politically correct by terming it a premature abortion of these pages—or how about, selective termination? If we use the words: personalized-selective extermination, this unfortunately may be offensive to some. But truly, regarding abortion—terminating a life—isn‘t that exactly what is taking place today? One hundred and twenty-six thousand times every day! This estimate may just be part and parcel of the global iceberg not fully visible, yet to be revealed. Keep in mind the enormous estimates which are agreed upon internationally. Now place those daily statistics with the ww168 unknown, unethical, incomprehensible true figures. I use the word choice since millions love this word so much. Using this book as a basic analogy of premature termination, the subject matters herein have been cut short. The pages of this book were growing and thriving in newness of life—as in what happens regarding abortion of a baby, before it comes forth from the womb; suddenly, from foreign outside forces (medical abortion procedures), an extermination has taken place. Unnaturally, life has been snatched away, selfishly silenced in a word: ―Assassinated.‖ ww169 However, Page S Page S

The sad and loathing pains will be almost unbearable.

Audio MP3 #17 Everyone will be judged according to what is written in the Eternal‘s Word. Whether you believe in God or not, is inconsequential. Whether you‘ve lived your life according to the Almighty‘s Word or not, small or great, rich or poor, judged you will be. Verse 12 ―And I saw the dead, great and small, standing before the throne, and books were opened. Another book was opened, which is the book of life. The dead were judged according to what they had done as recorded in the books.‖ Verse 13 ―The sea gave up the dead that were in it, and death and Hades gave up the dead that were in them, and each person was judged according to what he had done.‖ Revelation 20:12-13; New International Version.

It is not too late if any find themselves in similar circumstances, such as, the sin of abortion or any transgressions against God‘s way of life. The EterPage T Page T

Let your ears be attentive to my cry for mercy.‖ Verse 3 ―If you, O Lord, kept a record of sins, O Lord, who could stand?‖ Verse 4 ―But with you there is forgiveness; therefore you are feared.‖ Psalm 130:1-4; New International Version. Everyone who has sinned must commit themselves to a new devotion. Very encouraging words come from a song which bears that title. It‘s an old-school song by Earth, Wind, and Fire. I believe peace of mind can be transferred by these lyrics. “For you here‟s a song, to make your day brighter. One that will last you long thru troubled days. Giving your heart the light, that‟s brighter all of the dark that falls in your way. You need devotion. Bless the children deliverance from the fruits of evil. In everyone‟s life, there‟s a need to be happy. Let the sun shine, a smile your way. Open your heart, feel a touch of devotion. Maybe this song, will help uplift your day. Make a better way.”

Audio MP3 #19 Let us ponder a horrible scenario. What if Christ‘s mother, Mary, was pregnant with Christ in our modern day ww170 world. Imagine if the mother of Jesus was allowed to be swayed by peer pressure to do the unthinkable: have an abortion. Manipulated by today‘s self-centered surroundings, the global community‘s ungodly character carries out ungodly abortionist‘s acts. All forms of media, by preaching false doctrines and spewing out deceitful political propaganda, contribute to maintaining the self-promotion attitude of ―Me first.‖ Society‘s self-inflicted disease of ―Me first‖ takes over— rendering God-fearing obligations and responsibilities carnally unattractive and worthless. Christ, God with us—as He walked the earth in the flesh—rebuked that generation, explaining that Sodom and Gomorrah would fare far better in the judgment than they would. Verse 23 ―...If the miracles that were performed in you had been performed in Sodom, it would have remained to this day.‖ Verse 24 ―But I tell you that it will be more bearable for Sodom on the day of judgment than for you.‖ Matthew 11:23-24; New International

Version. This is a frightening realization. At that time, Christ revealed that the sexually sick, vile people of Sodom and Gomorrah were more righteous than they were. It is unimaginable how Christ feels about our current generation—and the unbelievable abominations we commit today. If the miraculous birth of Christ took place in today‘s society, and the Almighty allowed this sinister situation of abortion to take place, this scenario is not hard to imagine. Let‘s take a brief look and visualize the scene; the stage and script are already set. Mary is supposed to be a virgin, yet she becomes pregnant. Her husband to be finds out, knowing in his own mind full well that the marriage has not yet been consummated (no sex). Others secretly find out—major, major scandal. Today, the new, liberal rights, pro-abortionists are pushing for young teenage girls to possess the legal right to murder their babies without parental consent. That‘s right, in many such abortion cases, today‘s legal laws permit abortions and the parents don‘t even have to know!

than Barankin, spokesman for the attorney general‘s office says, ‗Practically it means, those school districts that have a policy on parental consent will need to take a fresh look at their rules as to how they can get in compliance with the law.‘‖ 12/03/04 Therefore, within this unthinkable scenario, because of our self-absorbed sinful society, our modern-day Mary would be allowed to secretly go and arrange for an abortion. With the Evil One‘s help and the full support of her high school counselors, she could void parental consent—consent to kill and get an abortion. Let us think how enormous this horrendous tragedy would be. The world would be without a Savior. If the Almighty Creator God allowed such wickedness to take place, the consequences would be unthinkable! If Jesus Christ, the world‘s Savior, didn‘t die for our sins, then there could be no resurrection of Christ. Remember Paul said Verse 17 ―And if Christ has not been raised, your faith is futile; you are still in your sins.‖ Verse 18 ―Then those also who have fallen asleep in Christ are lost.‖ Verse 19 ―If only for this life we have hope in Christ, we are to be pitied more than all men.‖ 1 Corinthians 15:17-19; New International Version. I realize this is a horrible scenario. But do not worry, God‘s Word will always stand. This tragedy was not in the plan because it was not written in the script. And the Omnipotent One who reigns supreme is the ultimate script writer. ww171 The scripture plainly says, Verse 30 ―There is no wisdom, no insight, no plan that can succeed against the Lord.‖ Proverbs 21:30; New

have distinguished as expendable, not ―real‖ human life. Swift punishment will swirl down upon the heads of that so-called elite (real human life); however, bodies without number will be piled up and blood-like rivers will flow deeply through the streets. Here in God‘s Word is a type of punishment for the unrepentant (those who want to remain wicked): Verse 23 ―See, the storm of the Lord will burst out in wrath, a driving wind swirling down on the heads of the wicked.‖ Verse 24 ―The fierce anger of the Lord will not turn back until he fully accomplishes the purposes of his heart. In days to come you will understand this.‖ Jeremiah 30:23-24; New International Version. Did you catch that? Notice the futuristic weapons that will be unleashed—―A driving wind swirling down on the heads of the wicked.‖ At the end of verse 24, the Eternal even answers the curious questions people have about what type of modern weapons can produce this unthinkable effect. Seven chapters before, these scriptures explain concerning the end time. No one will have any doubts regarding the types of weapons that will be used to punish and destroy one nation over another—all will be completely clear, as our Creator says, you will understand it perfectly. Verse 19 ―Behold, a whirlwind of the Lord has gone forth in fury—A violent whirlwind! It will fall violently on the head of the wicked.‖ Verse 20 ―The anger of the Lord will not turn back Until He has executed and performed the thoughts of His heart.

O man, O woman of the world, how will you escape such unrepented sins? If unrepented, I tell you the truth, you will not. Currently billions claim to believe in the Almighty within thousands of religions today; worshippers profess wholeheartedly in a higher power, a Creator. It is ironic how ww175 the world worships Him. It boggles the mind to realize how the world has robbed itself of the enormous potential of those 46,000,000 lost souls, selected for extermination each and every year. Let us briefly lament and remember the holocaust. Over 6 million lives from the descendants of Judah were slaughtered. This is an unthinkable number of people killed. Trying to comprehend that over 6 million people were murdered—from one end of Europe to the other—is morbidly mind-warping.

Middle School students in Whitwell, Tennessee, collected paper clips to represent victims of the holocaust. The Children‘s Holocaust Memorial was dedicated on November 9th, 2001, 63 years exactly from the day of Kristallnacht. This inspirational film shows teachers who cared enough for their students to teach them the real truth about history instead of allowing them to be deceived by numerous attempts to rewrite history concerning the holocaust. Many holocaust history deceivers don‘t even try to rewrite what took place. They simply lie outwardly to your face. There is a plethora of false books written, to their discredit.

When the truth is taught, positive life-changing lessons are learned. In Paper Clips, a student asked a very noteworthy question, ―What is 6 million?‖ He wanted to know what 6

million of anything looked like. From that premise an important research project was started by the students. They discovered that the paper clip was invented in Norway and the Norwegians used it as a symbol in the holocaust. During the second World War they placed paper clips on themselves representing people in the holocaust. This inspired the Tennessee Whitwell Middle School students to action. They wrote people around the world for paper clips and received thousands of letters with paper clips enclosed. In short, they received over 24,000,000 paper clips. Learning and understanding the lessons of the past are preventive measures for those who live in the present—not to take part in repeating those same follies. (Holocaust Survivor): ―Instead of being afraid and shielding your children, prepare them, prepare them for the real world. Yes, there are not nice things out there but if they will be prepared, they will be able to do the right thing.‖ Knowing the truth of what happened in the past will help us all to cope just a little better with what‘s coming in the very near future. I‘m sorry, but everyww177 one living must know: This is an inescapable fact. As a matter of fact, very few will escape at all. All our oppressive ways, the heartache and suffering we inflict upon each other, must be stopped. All schools around the world should have similar programs such as the Paper Clip Project. Just having the opportunity and privilege to hear victims tell

their stories humbles you. (Holocaust Survivor): ―I will tell you one thing, every one survivor got a story. There‘s not enough paper in the whole world and not enough pens to write down what each survivor went through.‖ Here is further food for thought. These students eventually set aside 11 million paper clips which were placed inside the holocaust memorial, 6 million paper clips representing Jews, and another 5 million to represent gypsies, homosexuals, Seventh Day Adventists, and others who didn‘t fit in the wretched German reich. One of the teachers said, think, each of these paper clips represents a person‘s life, their experiences, their journey through life, a life cut short. What happened to them, and who cut it short? Each one had a very special and unique role to play. (Principal): ―I think when you look at these paper clips, the purpose of it is to remember the lives that were exterminated during the holocaust. It‘s just overwhelming. What if these people had not been exterminated? Who was destroyed there? Was it another wonderful teacher? Was it an artist? And I think of all the grandchildren that never came to be.‖ She said it‘s overwhelming, and she is right. Seeing the students in this film pour thousands of paperclips into containers and eventually, multiple millions into the train car memorial as a final resting place should make us deeply lament.

through the forest to a small hill where the victims were commanded to turn their backs then mercilessly machine gunned down. Their bodies fell backwards and conveniently rolled down into the ravine. Tens of thousands were spread out like fertilizer on the ground, lying in shallow graves.

Millions of paper clips pour into containers representing millions of human lives lost. Again, the Paper Clip Project represented 11 million lives brutally cut short. Remember the statement of the teacher, ―It overwhelms you. What if those people had not been exterminated? Who was destroyed there?

Was it another wonderful teacher or an artist? Think of all the grandchildren that never came to be, all the children that never came to be.‖ Here is where we finalize this enormous, spiritual meal for thought. Let us think about something much greater. Consider, no matter whether you are for or against abortion, the enormous number of children, dubiously and falsely labeled aborted in this wretched world. The sum total of 46 million lives snuffed out per year is more than those who live within the cities of New York, Chicago, Los Angeles, and Washington D.C. combined. Try to picture, if you can, no one left alive at all within those cities—only piles of dead. And every year, another 46,000,000 wiped out. Again, that horrific number represents approximately 126,000 lives exterminated every single day. Those past murderers in Nazi Germany can‘t hold a candle to the daily wicked practices inflicted on today‘s innocent lives of murdered babies who could not speak for themselves. And just think, this is an accepted practice within our sin-filled, self-glorified society today. Try to envision this reality through the eyes of the ww178 Eternal, the Creator of all mankind.

Now please, come along with me. Grab your calculator; start punching out the numbers. The tragic wake of the 2004 tsunami, a so-called natural disaster, killed a revised estimate

of 230,000 people. Carefully consider 230,000 lives lost in a single day. Now calculate the man-made massacre from the daily selected sacrifice of babies slaughtered.

When Disaster Comes To A City, Has Not The Lord Caused It?

FOX News Channel www.foxnews.com Host: Neil Cavuto—Your World with Cavuto ―There are many very deeply religious folks, Bishop, who say that this busy hurricane season is going to be continued God‘s wrath, that this is all somehow spiritually divined. Do you buy that?‖ ―I totally disagree with that. I think that‘s a miscarriage and a misrepresentation of a loving and sincere God who cares about people. Historically, in the Bible when God destroyed a city because of wickedness, there was always an opportunity for the righteous to escape. In the illustrations that we‘re talking about with Katrina, I don‘t see where there was any evangelistic effort and the righteous escape. This was just something that hit grandmothers and that hit people in senior citizens‘ homes. It hit babies; one man was found dead holding his baby up and the baby was dead trying to escape the floods. That doesn‘t sound like Sodom and Gomorrah, that sounds like inclement weather and it sounds like not having the appropriate plans in place to subvert this tragedy and now we‘re here at hurricane

season again. The big question is: are we any more prepared now than we were this time last year? And in many cases, I think the answer is No. We‘ve made some progress but not nearly enough.‖ Regarding Katrina, it‘s been almost a decade since that catastrophic destruction has taken place, and we‘re still not ready. Except for Japan, America in many respects is more prepared than most nations. However, in regards to the countries recently devastated by earthquakes—China, Haiti, and Chile—our mental state in dealing with such hard hitting ca-

lamities is far more fragile than those who deal with such struggles within their normal, daily lives, than citizens within can possibly realize.

Bishop Jakes raises many important issues; however, first I would like to focus on the question asked—whether America is any more prepared since Katrina. Bishop Jakes‘ answer was no. He stated progress has been made but not nearly enough. My answer to that same question is also, no. But my answer is based on a more spiritual level than a physical one. To be ready for disastrous situations such as Katrina, carnal human nature must be subdued for a time. It does not matter whether it is a hurricane, earthquake, fire or civil unww182 rest, the wretched ways of mankind are the real disaster.

After the fact is too late. After the fact puts everyone at risk, those who are caught up in the storm along with ww183 rescuers desperately trying to save people from it.

At the terrible time when the hurricane hit New Orleans and the surrounding areas, I was in England. I heard a great many news reports regarding Katrina. Government warnings for people to evacuate as soon as possible were announced. Warnings were repeated over and over, some on a 24 -hour basis stating government admonitions for the people to leave. I believe early evacuation notices were made at least a

When Disaster Comes To A City, Has Not The Lord Caused It? Amos 3:6; New International Version

week in advance. Certainly, the warning signs were ringing off the hook. I could hear them loud and clear even overseas in England. Many citizens living in the hurricane‘s projected path did just that—took the warnings seriously and left. Taking heed, they suppressed the natural rebellious nature within us all to disregard sound instructions.

Yes, many government officials—along with emergency and security agencies—were tragically unprepared; however, we cannot and should not place the blame squarely on the government for the constant disastrous troubles that befall . Bitterly, millions in America, especially opposing political parties, have maliciously blamed the other for the woes of the country. This blame game is wicked human nature at its worst. This is an unfortunate, self-centered trait passed on by our original parents: Adam blamed Eve, and Eve blamed the snake.

Tragic reality will soon hit you, sadly taking the life you set up and the lives of your family members away. Our government—set up by the people, for the people— should not allow billions of dollars to be spent just so a certain segment of our society can live their lives comfortably under a constant threat of their habitat being destroyed. Just think of it. Multiple billions of dollars spent, placing a Band-Aid on a gushing grand canyon-like wound which never seems to stop bleeding. Please understand. I‘m not just speaking of the areas hit hard by Katrina; there are many naturally unsafe places where people foolishly choose to permanently live. As an example, look at the tragedy that took place not long ago in California.

Back to the interview by Mr. Cavuto and comments by Bishop Jakes. He said this was something that hit grandmothers—senior citizens‘ homes and babies. He referenced a man holding up his baby—he died with his child trying to escape the floods. Again, Mr. Cavuto‘s question to him was: did he see this as God‘s wrath, all somehow spiritually divined? First of all, the Eternal does not need to exert much effort to level destruction upon wretched mankind. Unfortunately, we do that quite effectively on our own. Within the tribulation age of 42 (42 months equals 3½ years), unimaginable atrocities and sufferings will take place. Verse 22 ―For these are the days of vengeance, that all things which are written may be fulfilled.‖ Verse 23 ―But woe to those who are pregnant and to those who are nursing babies in those days! For there will be great distress in the land and wrath upon this people.‖ Luke 21:22-23; New King James Version. Selah! (Think on this.) Consider carefully the Creator‘s Word. Here, the Eternal will clearly allow innocent babies who are still nursing at their mother‘s breast to be victimized, slaughtered by the unfaithful hand of humankind. Again, Selah! Regarding the asinine decisions made by citizens in choosing where to live: it‘s naïve thinking at best to take up permanent residence in a trap—a swampy fishbowl—commonly known to flood. All residents were previously warned, many years ago, realizing that someday the mother of all floods would come.

During bad weather situations, people

always foolishly place the blame on a pretend mother nature. Listen closely folks. There is no mother nature nor is there any father nature. There‘s only the Almighty God who created nature and He states boldly in His Word: Verse 6 ―...When disaster comes to a city, has not the Lord caused it?‖ Amos 3:6; New International Version. Against mankind, the Eternal has an uncountable multitude of reasons why such disasters be allowed to hit and devastate His creation. We are a rebellious nation, and becoming increasingly godless daily in all our ways. Our nation arrogantly sets up its own gods, and establishes its very own petty pagan rules to obey such gods. Yet, we cry out to the true God when disaster hits us, ―Oh! Come and save us.‖ One of the most deceiving comments that is repeated over and over during disastrous times is, ―Where is God? Why did He allow this? A loving God would not do this.‖ All of you ww189 please, from this point on, get a clue.

Our naïve, deceitful worshipping ways are as false and pagan as the pretend gods people set up and idolize within their daily lives. Now, don‘t get me wrong. I realize, Americans above all nationalities, are still very zealous for God. But sadly, our zeal is misplaced. Verse 2 ―It is not good to have zeal without knowledge, nor to be hasty and miss the way.‖ Verse 3 ―A man‘s own folly ruins his life, yet his heart rages against the

Bishop Jakes‘ beginning comments are historically in the Bible, when God destroyed the city because of wickedness, there was always an opportunity for the righteous to escape. In this regard, Bishop Jakes is right; however, the answer to the profound question of ―who is righteous?‖ belongs to the Creator and Him alone.
ww190

No disrespect to Bishop Jakes. Off the cuff, his comments in this interview were concisely profound. He did not have the privilege of time I now have to go over in detail this most misunderstood question. Even the space I have taken here in this book is inadequate to cover this subject. Those who consider themselves righteous and worthy of saving need to take time and meditate on what Christ personally stated within His Word. Remember in the days of Elijah, people were dying from a severe famine. Very few men, women, and children were spared the horrendous suffering that crippled this land for over three and half years (42 months). Verse 25 ―I assure you that there were many widows in Israel in Elijah‘s time, when the sky was shut for three and a half years and there was a severe famine throughout the land.‖ Verse 26 ―Yet Elijah was not sent to any of them, but to a widow in Zarephath in the region of Sidon.‖ Verse 27 ―And there were many in Israel with leprosy in the time of Elisha the prophet,

Now, many people may be furious with my words regarding disasters that have taken place and coming destructions which will continue throughout America and the rest of the world. Reality and truth are hard words to swallow especially when your gullet is clogged up with falsehoods. But those of you who are angry with me for the statements which I have made and the scriptures which surely and truly back them up, consider your actions. In alienation against what has been said, you‘ve only aligned yourself with those stonyhearted, stiff-necked people of Christ‘s day.

That‘s right, no is the answer, especially for those politicians, actors, and news media commentators who are constantly on the airwaves claiming they know what Christ would say, think, and do. Let us begin the confirmation challenge. Picture Jesus Christ being commanded to attend the Supreme Court hearings.

Christ, the Creator, is once again placed on display, being judged by His own creation to become a judge by vote. Imagine the Almighty Creator God, being voted on by His very creation who have transformed themselves into a warped, ungodly people. Previous judgment records and past statements are commonly used for or against confirmation of judgeship. The entire biblical record is hereby used against the Almighty. Now, a panel of worldly elected officials and career politicians

commence the questioning of Christ. Note to the reader: Questions are asked by our imaginary American Senator playing the role of a prominent government official. This pretend servant of the people is characterized as a Disrespectful, Arrogant Senator (DAS). Also note, the reading of the Eternal‘s Word is done by our government employee characterized as the God-Fearing Foreman (GFF). (DAS:) ―Jesus the Christ, in light of a woman‘s choice, choosing what she does with her own body, did you not say in your word and I quote, (GFF:) Verse 22 ―Wives, submit to your husbands as to the Lord.‖ New International Version. Another version reads, Verse 22 ―Wives, be in subjection unto your own husbands, as unto the Lord.‖ Ephesians 5:22; American Standard Version.‖ (DAS:) ―Jesus, is that your testimony here today? Speak up Jesus, what say you to this honorable panel trying to make sense out of your past judgments. What is your defense? Here‘s another God-breathed quote, (GFF:) Verse 4 ―The wife‘s body does not belong to her alone…‖ 1 Corinthians 7:4; New International Version. (DAS:) ―But now, I believe another version gives the real sentiment of your rulings. (GFF:) Verse 4 ―The wife does not have authority over her own body, but the husband does.‖ 1 Corinthians 7:4; New King James Version. (DAS:) ―By this, are you saying, a woman cannot do what she wants to do with her own body? She does not have that choice above her husband? Moreover, she must obey her husband and do what he says? Do you (the senator chuckles) seriously, sincerely believe this?! Now, Jesus, I have here your

testament in my hands. Would you care to read some of the statements you have made, rulings and judgments you have handed down for the entire creation to obey? (GFF:) Verse 16 ―...Your desire will be for your husband, and he will rule over you.‖ Genesis 3:16; New International Version. Verse continues, Verse 16 ―To the woman he said, ‗I will greatly increase your pains in childbearing; with pain you will give birth to children.‘‖ Genesis 3:16; New International Version. (DAS:) ―I simply cannot believe my eyes and ears. You are the Creator of all mankind? Your creation gets a little out of hand, they don‘t eat the right fruit from the right tree as you told them to, they break some of your precious commandments and your judgment is pain for women in childbearing? Do you continue to stand by these past judgments you have handed down within your holy word? (GFF:) Verse 6 ―For I am the Lord, I do not change…‖ Malachi 3:6; New King James Version. (DAS:) ―What kind of compassion is that to have for your creation? Speaking in regard to having and exercising compassion, enormous immigration issues are an oppressing problem for the United States today. Many immigrants, which some callous people call ‗illegal aliens,‘ have come across our borders and are now residing in our country by the millions. Are they, in your opinion, just poor immigrants looking for a better life or would you categorize them as criminals? Since they are here already, should they not be given the same rights as those immigrants who entered our country by legal means? Before you answer, I‘d like to read a direct quote from you, a bodacious, blanket statement you made, (GFF:) Verse 1 ―I tell
160 160

What Would Christ Do

you the truth, the man who does not enter the sheep pen by the gate, but climbs in by some other way, is a thief and a robber.‖ John 10:1; New International Version. (DAS:) ―Are you indeed still claiming this judgment as your testimony here today? Jesus, here you are plainly saying that these people who do not enter into our country by legal means are criminals, outright thieves and robbers! Many of these poor immigrants cannot find jobs in their own homeland. Yet, when they arrive in this country, we feed them, we clothe them, when they get sick we give them free health care. When they have children by the millions, we provide pre-natal care for their mothers. If they go to school, we teach them. If they don‘t want to learn the language, we spend millions in tax payers‘ money to provide bi-lingual teachers for them! And here you say, and I quote from one of your scriptures, (GFF:) Verse 10 ―If a man will not work, he shall not eat.‖ 2 Thessalonians 3:10; New International Version. (DAS:) ―Now Jesus, where is the compassion in that statement? This is a literal rule you have handed down to your own disciples—students of yours whom you taught and commanded to continue to teach even within your own church. To those followers of yours, you say (GFF:) Verse 14 ―If anyone does not obey our instruction in this letter, take special note of him. Do not associate with him, in order that he may feel ashamed.‖ 2 Thessalonians 3:14; New International Version. (DAS:) ―I myself am ashamed for having to read such a thing. Jesus, there are so many reports that are against you and your confirmation to judgeship to the highest court in the land, it is simply unbelievable. There are disturbing and very
161 161

alarming reports that you personally are a homophobe. Say it‘s not so: you‘re indifferent about people choosing whom they want to be with, having their own choice about whom they want to love, and even whom they want to marry. Past statements you have made are a shocking indictment against you. Have you not said, (GFF:) Verse 26 ―Because of this, God gave them over to shameful lusts. Even their women exchanged natural relations for unnatural ones.‖ Verse 27 ―In the same way the men also abandoned natural relations with women and were inflamed with lust for one another. Men committed indecent acts with other men, and received in themselves the due penalty for their perversion.‖ Romans 1:26 -27; New International Version. (DAS:) ―What? Their perversion? Is this what you call the free choices of men and women today? You call them unnatural relationships? You call them indecent acts? You say, God gave them over to shameful lusts? Is this the testimony you are giving this elected, distinguished body today? You continue in your very hostile, homophobic rampage, (GFF:) Verse 28 ―Furthermore, since they did not think it worthwhile to retain the knowledge of God, he gave them over to a depraved mind, to do what ought not to be done.‖ Verse 29 ―They have become filled with every kind of wickedness, evil, greed and depravity. They are full of envy, murder, strife, deceit and malice. They are gossips,‖ Verse 30 ―slanderers, Godhaters, insolent, arrogant and boastful; they invent ways of doing evil; they disobey their parents;‖ Verse 31 ―they are senseless, faithless, heartless, ruthless.‖ Verse 32 ―Although they know God‘s righteous decree that those who do such
162 162

things deserve death, they not only continue to do these very things but also approve of those who practice them.‖ Romans 1:28-32; New International Version. (DAS:) ―What a pessimistic mindset you have for the good of mankind. Let me get this straight. Your condemnation of those who do these common things, committing these so-called sinful acts, in your mind do they deserve death? I gather that means you believe in capital punishment. You believe those who commit crimes against your law, your way of life, should be put to death? You claim everyone on the earth belongs to you. (GFF:) Verse 4 ―Behold, all souls are Mine; The soul of the father as well as the soul of the son is Mine; The soul who sins shall die.‖ Ezekiel 18:4; New King James Version. (DAS:) ―I am speechless! And I have no further questions for this so-called candidate; furthermore, I move—based on the evidence, past judgments and testimonies of this nominee—that he be denied confirmation and immediately removed from this most distinguished and honorable assembly. I vote in favor to eliminate prayers in all schools and public places throughout all the cities and states within this country to this self-proclaimed righteous leader of the people. These hearings are hereby adjourned.‖

Christmas to continue being acknowledged as Christmas. Simply being able to say, ―Merry Christmas‖ if they desired was a contested issue. Those on the opposing side, lobby for a more religious political correctness or should I say, unreligious acknowledgement, such as, ―Season‘s Greetings‖ or ―Happy Holidays.‖ Now, it is not my desire to rehash old, nonsensical news stories; however, there is a more serious, deeper meaning behind all of this backbiting, back and forth rhetoric which very few seem to understand. Most people who speak out for or against have very little understanding regarding the true teachings of the Creator, or a day they suppose celebrates Christ. John Gibson‘s book regarding Christmas and his premise on the unreligious left attacking God is off target—as in a dart game; however, he does score points for effort. Many so-called progressive thinkers, and those who hate the religious right, attack God as they file countless lawsuits to remove plaques and other art displays containing the Ten Commandments from all courtrooms. Their aggressive, progressive agenda is to remove all religious symbols or anything dedicated to the Creator from public buildings. Sadly, most of their zeal to make things poww199 litically correct is based on falsehoods.

On both sides many foolishly perceive, in their deceived minds, that God cares about Christmas. Verily I tell you the truth, the Creator does not care about anything so permeated with paganism.

The Real Christmas Past

Ironically, the religious right is defending Christmas because they also feel that it has something to do with God—which is one of the biggest reasons the unreligious left attack it. Sadly, both political parties are incorrect, badly mistaken in this childish fight. Like a dirty snowball, getting larger as it rolls down a filthy hill, this old pagan custom has been gaining strength. Throughout the centuries, this ancient custom has been swelling up, bigger and bigger, taking on and incorporating more pagan rituals, reinventing itself from generation to generation. Now, in our modern culture, deceitfully dressed and fit for our so-called sophisticated society, this holiday has taken on a false format of righteousness. Christmas, from the deceived mind of mankind, has nothing to do with God, and it never has, not the true God anyway. As the scripture says, Verse 3 ―…Let God be true and every man a liar...‖ Romans 3:4; New International Version. This counterfeit holy day is infested with pagan symbols. The Christmas tree god is also glorified and dressed with pagan symbols, adorned and laden with paganism from top to bottom. The entire foundational concept is of pagan origin. Verse 3 ―For the customs of the people are worthless; they cut a tree out of the forest, and a craftsman shapes it with his chisel.‖ Verse 4 ―They adorn it with silver and gold, they fasten it with hammer and nails so that it will not totter.‖ Verse 5 ―Like a scarecrow in a melon patch, their idols cannot speak; they must be carried because they cannot walk. Do not

fear them; they can do no harm nor can they do any good.‖ Jeremiah 10:3-5; New International Version. The question is frequently asked of me, ―What do you have against Christmas?‖ The proper question should be, what do I have against paganism? The answer to that question is: everything.
ww202

Paganism encompasses a wide range of false ideas and practices; however, the concept of this word can be summed up as a system of deception. This system of deception is what I have against paganism. It deceives people into thinking that it‘s something genuine, something that should be worshipped, or hallowed, or respected. The origins of most holidays that many globally observe are from paganism. We can also call paganism a system of diversions or delusions to ww203 distract or blind. As the scripture says, Verse 4 ―The god of this age has blinded the minds of unbelievers, so that they cannot see the light of the gospel of the glory of Christ, who is the image of God.‖ 2 Corinthians 4:4; New International Version. Jews predominantly do not celebrate December 25th as a day to honor God or Christ. Not just because many Jews foolishly don‘t recognize Christ—but to their credit, because they know of its pagan origin. Do you remember the conversation that Christ had with the woman at the well, when He told her a revelation that she had five husbands? And she replied Verse 19 ―‗Sir,‘ the woman said, ‗I can see that you are a
168 168

prophet.‘‖ Verse 20 ―‗Our fathers worshiped on this mountain, but you Jews claim that the place where we must worship is in Jerusalem.‘‖ Verse 21 ―Jesus declared, ‗Believe me, woman, a time is coming when you will worship the Father neither on this mountain nor in Jerusalem.‘‖ Verse 22 ―‗You Samaritans worship what you do not know; we worship what we do know, for salvation is from the Jews.‘‖ John 4:19-22; New International Version.

The Real Christmas Past

Salvation is from the Jews, those who are Jews inwardly know what they worship. The rest of the world have no real idea and many vague biblical teachings they claim to have are based on falsehoods. Millions of people who consider themselves religious have gone astray from the original teachings of their faith. No matter whether you are ―Muslim‖ or ―Christian,‖ today even orthodox Jews have gone astray from the teachings of the true God. A global collection of counterfeit days of man which the whole world celebrates has nothing to do with God. Most of our prominent holidays and customs will be examined and explained in more detail in of (if the Lord wills). But now, let us continue our focus on the concept America and the rest of the world have with Christmas, falsely celebrated as the day Christ was born. Isaiah 5:20; New International Version Audio MP3 #25 A great many of the godless pagan origins surrounding Christmas started hundreds of years before Jesus came in the flesh as Emmanuel (God with us); moreover, this celebration—with Christ‘s name hijacked and deceitfully forged to it—was officially sanctioned some four hundred years after Christ‘s death. That is why throughout the scriptures, neither Christ Himself, nor any of His disciples ever celebrated or honored in any way this day claimed to be Christ‘s birth. Even if the disciples were secretly told the day of Christ‘s birth by Christ Himself, it would not be reverenced or observed as a ww205 practice of priority.

This is the real spiritual priority. They honor His death and sacrifice by keeping the Passover, a new, more significant Passover commemoration which was introduced by Christ Himself. Much more on this Passover subject will be discussed in detail in of . Sadly, very few people obey the ways of God in spirit and in truth; however, many claiming to be Christians love to keep the pagan ―holy days,‖ being true only to themselves by keeping their own traditions. Deceived theologians placed Christ‘s name in the word Christ-mas, as if that would make it holy or give it some true significance. Of course, you can falsely rewrite history on any significant event. Take Kristallnacht which means, ―Night of Broken Glass.‖ This event signifies the horrifying time of Adolf Hitler when many Jewish businesses were demolished.

Continued Kristallnacht Side Note

Background Kristallnacht
―On November 9-10, 1938, hate-driven German citizens openly attacked Jews and looted and burned their places of residence, worship and business. The open and direct actions of the German people towards their fellow countrymen, the German Jews, was a major turning point in the emergence of hate that would eventually lead to the destruction of over 11 million non-Aryan peoples, including 6.5 million Jews of Europe. ―It is important to realize that this was not an act of a select few or of the key officers of the Nazi regime, but the German people. In the big picture, this event performed by the Nazis/Germans was one of the darkest moments in the history of mankind. It highlights the capacity that we all have for hate, either directly or indirectly, for our fellow man. While not at a scale of Kristallnacht or Nazi Europe, hate still breeds today in many forms.‖ Now, let us play the hypothetical phony holy day game. Using this date of destruction against the Jews, what if a misguided, deceived group of people decided to change this event into a day of their own religious celebration— Let‘s say this new sinister religion became a big religious anniversary, considered a holy day honored by most of the world‘s Ku Klux Klan members and skin heads—all who worship at the dead feet of Adolf Hitler.

People pay homage to this new day of celebration, and start a new custom by sending gifts to each other.

This phony, wretched celebration becomes commemorated and honored by the entire international community. Worldwide, most shops and businesses are closed, including schools, so children can go to church, learning new made-up hymns to honor K Nazi Day. This day, November 9, 1938, formerly known as ―Kristallnacht,‖ has now been historically rewritten as a day of worship when the white race began to rule the world. Sound ridiculous, outrageous, too far-fetched? Well, it‘s no worse or wicked than what deceived mankind has already done with Christ‘s good name. This is nothing short of an abomination as the religious world places the Almighty‘s name on symbols of paganism and sin. People of deception, whether past or present, must realize a greater, more sinister propagandized deception will soon darken the earth. This system of phony façades will leave in its deceitful wake, multiple millions of bamboozled humans, dead from one end of the earth to the other. Unknowingly, citizens from around the world will be deceitfully stirred up by ww206 fake religious leaders and wicked spirits in high places.

Globally, all will celebrate the day of the two witnesses‘ death by sending gifts to one another. That‘s right. Read it for yourself: Verse 7 ―Now when they have finished their testimony, the beast that comes up from the Abyss will attack them, and overpower and kill them.‖ Verse 8 ―Their bodies will lie in the street of the great city, which is figuratively called Sodom and
173 173

Egypt, where also their Lord was crucified.‖ Verse 9 ―For three and a half days men from every people, tribe, language and nation will gaze on their bodies and refuse them burial.‖ Verse 10 ―The inhabitants of the earth will gloat over them and will celebrate by sending each other gifts, because these two prophets had tormented those who live on the earth.‖ Revelation 11:7-10; New International Version. That‘s right! A new worldwide holiday will be established for everyone who remains deceived, to celebrate as a new day of worship. Tragically, this new day of worldly celebration will come to a horrific end. Verse 11 ―But after the three and a half days a breath of life from God entered them, and they stood on their feet, and terror struck those who saw them.‖ Revelation 11:11; New International Version. There is a great deal that must be carefully understood and seriously ww207 learned regarding this scripture.

May those who have ears, let them hear. And may those who have eyes be granted Godly spiritual vision, enabling them to see what‘s coming. Note: from all these scriptures we have studied in God‘s Word, everyone should clearly realize most humans are like dumb sheep being led deceitfully to the slaughter.

I can imagine if da Vinci could hear from his grave, he would be appalled, and scream from the top of his lungs, ―Liar, liar, pants on fire!!!‖ I have just one sound to make about this very popular poison which has polluted the minds of millions. That profound sound using the endearing phrase of the late Sam Kinison: Many customs of ignorance have led millions astray, especially in the false form of idols. Since mankind (that means you) chose his own false way to worship the Creator, most people understand nothing, their eyes are plastered over so they cannot see. Verse 15 ―It is man‘s fuel for burning; some of it he takes and warms himself, he kindles a fire and bakes bread. But he also fashions a god and worships it; he makes an idol and bows down to it.‖ Verse 16 ―Half of the wood he burns in the fire; over it he prepares his meal, he roasts his meat and eats his fill. He also warms himself and says, ‗Ah! I am warm; I see the fire.‘‖ Verse 17 ―From the rest he makes a god, his idol; he bows down to it and worships. He prays to it and says, ‗Save me; you are my god.‘‖ Verse 18 ―They know nothing, they understand nothing; their eyes are plastered over so they cannot see, and their minds closed so they cannot understand.‖ Verse 19 ―No one stops to think, no one has the knowledge or understanding to say, ‗Half of it I used for fuel; I even baked bread over its coals, I roasted meat and I ate.

How outrageous is that? Numerous people during worship services conducted around the world, bow down to blocks of wood (statue idols) on a weekly basis. No matter how you dress it up, it is still a pagan idol—wicked symbols, deceitfully transformed as icons of worship by the Evil One. These idolized, pagan practices are endorsed wholeheartedly by the religious world today. All of this knowledge is elementary, fully backed up by history books found in any local library.

Because if you look at what happened in Western Europe and Canada, if you can get religion out, then you can pass secular progressive programs like legalization of narcotics, euthanasia, abortion at will, gay marriage, because the objection to those things is religious-based, usually.‖ ―You have France or you have Holland, you have legalized prostitution, or you have drugs. All those things come in which religious organizations tend to oppose. Once you start taking out even the secular symbols of religious holidays, Christmas trees, Santas, so forth, refuse to use the word Christmas, you can shove this religious stuffs indoors, out of sight.‖ Both viewpoints given by Mr. O‘Reilly and Mr. Gibson are correct. The logic they use is mentally sound and understandable, however, spiritually they don‘t have a clue. Clueless as well are the so-called progressive ac179 179

tivists with grandiose agendas to secularize ―religious holidays‖ by taking God out. People concerned that somehow the Creator is wringing His hands in frustration over this matww212 ter can rest their minds assured—He is not.

Now, to those who want all references of God out of everything, your wicked, politically correct foolishness fools no one. As you circle about like progressive wolves pretending to be Christ-like, your phony false ways dress you up clearly in fake sheep‘s clothing. No one in their spiritual right mind should ever believe that Christ cares about Christmas. Again, this is a stupid, senseless dilemma because He was never in it ww213A-RRR in the first place. Both groups are deceived, tugging on a rope with neither end connected to God. Please understand. Since all pagan days of celebration have no connection to Christ, true students, Christ-like individuals, should be striving to do just that—be like Christ. The first disciples (students of God) never did. Nor did others, centuries after Christ‘s death. Even Paul said, verse 1 ―Follow my example, as I follow the example of Christ.‖ 1 Corinthians 11:1; New International Version. Following the ways of the Eternal, the creator of the Earth, is everything. We must deny ourselves the pagan ways of men, and follow Christ. Losing our lives for Christ, in terms of denying ourselves the pagan ways of this world, is how we

find it. Jesus said to his disciples, ―If anyone would come after me, he must deny himself and take up his cross and follow me. Verse 25 For whoever wants to save his life will lose it, but whoever loses his life for me will find it.‖ Matthew 16:24-25; New International Version. That‘s right. You might miss out of some things, a Christmas sweater here and there, as author Glenn Beck sincerely and passionately describes in his new book.

―His book is based on a deeply personal true story. The Christmas Sweater is a warm and poignant tale of family, faith, and forgiveness that offers us a glimpse of our own lives, but also making us question if we really know what‘s most important in them.‖ - www.glennbeck.com ww213B-RRR Now, I say unto you Mr. Glenn Beck, . Only the truth can set you free from what is wrong to what is right, and from darkness to light. Now, Christ is the light. When following Christ, you must leave the darkness. The Almighty commands, verse 46 ―I have come into the world as a light, so that no one who believes in me should stay in darkness.‖ John 12:46; New International Version

Question Side Note First, Mr. Gibson, I would like to thank you and give you enormous praise regarding your previous book, . I‘ve been able to glean a good deal of informative material from your book and also the documentary, bearing the same title, which aired on FOX News. Both were insightful and alarming power packages of information. Regarding your new book on Christmas, my question to you is: How would you like for someone to take your prominent name, John Gibson, and conspicuously display it on some whorehouse or any establishment of ill repute? Would this please you in any way? I tell you the truth, traveling around the world, I have seen some of the most deplorable, heart-wrenching scenes you could imagine. A friend of mine told of an experience he had in the Philippines. Some of the locals took him to a house of prostitution. Now, it was not some bunny ranch in Nevada with glitz and glamour associated with it. No, this was—as he described it—―a hell hole,‖ a godless infestation of putrefied pimps and a whole host of the ill repute. These heartless people preyed on little girls, abusing and using them as mere meal tickets while the little girls themselves suffered and starved. Little girls, some barely teenagers, had their legs chained to bedposts. This whorehouse was wickedly established as a factory changing little girls into whores, forcing

Continued Question Side Note
them to fulfill a quota of sexual acts with men. These very young, grade school-age girls were forced to be absent from school during the day, fulfilling nightly quotas, and suffering countless sexual assaults by evil, sinful men. Now Mr. Gibson, I already know the answer. You would not be happy, nor would anyone else. No one in their right mind would allow their good name to be placed on something which represents the opposite of who they are. That would be an outrageous deception. Jesus said, Verse 5 ―For many will come in my name, claiming, ‗I am the Christ,‘ and will deceive many.‖ Matthew 24:5; New International Version. That‘s right, they‘ll say this so-called Reverend represents Christ, or this cathedral represents Christ, or this special holiday, December 25th. They will deceive many. And so they have. We live in a confused world, a world whose thinking is upside down. The wrong way created man thinks is directly opposite of how the Creator God thinks. The Creator says, Verse 8 ―‗For my thoughts are not your thoughts, neither are your ways my ways,‘ declares the Lord.‘‖ Verse 9 ―‗As the heavens are higher than the earth, so are my ways higher than your ways and my thoughts than your thoughts.‘‖ Isaiah 55:8 -9; New International Version. Now, this should be plain.
ww215

In doing what the Creator says, actually following the
182 182

Woe To Those Who Call Evil Good And Good Evil Isaiah 5:20; New International Version

ways of God, we all shamefully fall short. Yes! Some of us fall ww216 farther than others. This understanding of judgment is based on knowledge. What did you know when you committed that sin, and how much did you know, will be the basis of punishment for all mankind. Verse 47 ―That servant who knows his master‘s will and does not get ready or does not do what his master wants will be beaten with many blows.‖ (other version reads, ―...beaten with many stripes. Luke 12:47; King James Version.) Verse 48 ―But the one who does not know and does things deserving punishment will be beaten with few blows. From everyone who has been given much, much will be demanded; and from the one who has been entrusted with much, much more will be asked.‖ Luke 12:47-48; New International Version. Some of the ways of God we personally feel are worthy to keep, deeds to fulfill, or commandments to obey. Other ways which we know are right deep within our conscience ww217 conflict with what we really want to do. So

Deceived, we‘ve decided for ourselves—it‘s better and easier to live with evil but permissive parents than a righteous but unpermissive one; moreover, other ways of the Creator, we reject altogether, perhaps feeling the Almighty is not so mighty. We naïvely think the Eternal is out of step with newage thinking, out of touch with our softer, more sensitive side
183 183

Woe To Those Who Call Evil Good And Good Evil Isaiah 5:20; New International Version

of society we live in today. Perhaps our touchy-feely society pities the Eternal in some way. Feeling sorry, they may pray for Him, ―God bless him, he means well but he just can‘t seem to understand our modern world.‖ Our new-age, anti-god feelings are en vogue. We‘ve moved on to more enlightened ways of thinking. Let us now ponder a sentimental nonsense statement of beliefs from those who claim to be wise, yet are fools. Intellectual progressive thinkers feel the illumination and power from the global cosmos has opened their minds to tolerate any and everything no matter what‘s right or wrong with it. As a matter of fact, there is no right or wrong, there is only opinion. Biblical principles—such as right and wrong—fall on deaf ears. The profound title of Tammy Bruce‘s book, highlights this priceless loss. A biblical reference backs up this understanding. Verse 15 ―Truth is nowhere to be found, and whoever shuns evil becomes a prey...‖ Isaiah 59:15; New International Version.

Everyone who does not adhere to the words of God and obey His commands have placed themselves within that basket—including those who claim they are atheists, believing in neither God nor the devil. They unknowingly volunteer to dwell within that hellish basket. You can safely say, they were the first special guests to arrive. On the flip side of this subject, others in the media do believe in God in some ways, but it‘s their own personal version of God. Creating, licensing, and selling their own special brand of god—a false version of who and what god is—has become common practice, especially by the media. Many in the media have become high priest helpers of the prince and power of the air. In of , we will explain in more detail regarding the deceitful ways of the media. This title is called

. I am picking on the media here because they are the most vocal. Theirs are the voices we hear day in and day out as we tune in to TV and radio programs. Worthwhile talk shows are increasingly hard to find, but there are many interesting radio host personalities I enjoy listening to. Two of my favorites, interestingly enough, used to air on the same radio network, . Al Rantel, Tammy Bruce, and John Phillips are the most unusual radio commentators I‘ve ever heard. They all bring their own spe187 187

cial spiritual understanding of the ―Eternal God.‖

Al, Tammy, and John Side Note

The remarkable styles of Al Rantel, Tammy Bruce, and John Phillips are quite similar. The discussion of the daily show topics usually falls along the same line of thinking. Rarely does either of them beat around the bush, but always come right to the point. Opposing views usually come from the left-thinking eyes of liberals. According to the doctrines of the left, all three would be considered staunch right wing Republicans; however, only Al Rantel admits to being on the side of the political right—or specifically what is known as a Reagan Republican (a ―Reaganite‖). John Phillips has a similar stance. Tammy Bruce, I believe, is really a democrat at heart but in the old-school sense of a democrat, like the political ideology of the late JFK (President John F. Kennedy). Nevertheless, today‘s Republican Party has moved so far left politically their ideology would likely be the same as JFK‘s or even farther left as President Carter‘s administration was. Placing aside Al and Tammy for a moment, radio talk show host Michael Savage calls politicians claiming to be on

the Republican side, who style their politimichael cal thinking like Democrats, he terms savage.com them ―Republicrats‖ and Democrats who express ideas like Republicans would, Mr. Savage calls them ―Demicans.‖ But Al, Tammy, and John are similar in very personal ways. All are homosexuals. Now please, no one should get upset with me. I‘m not unlocking some sacred closet, revealing some deeply held secret. This is common knowledge, perhaps known internationally but especially within the radio world. Although off KABC, Al and Tammy were highly respected and admired as radio hosts by millions of fans particularly across America. I‘m very fond of how they respond to the issues of the day, the profound comments they make, effectively handling and dismantling disrespectful, opposing views—mainly by those who were simply bitter to the bone regarding Former President Bush. I‘m very much looking forward to one day meeting and talking with them in person. So now you ask, what is the point? Why did I bring all this up, especially within the side note their sexual preference for the same sex? The point is, as humans go, sometimes we are in the right and other times we are in the wrong. Some people claim to be on the left politically and others claim to be on the right, but the way we live our lives is in direct opposition of the die-hard position we claim to stand in. Frankly ww220 speaking,

All humankind, instead of thinking like Republicans, Democrats, Independents, or Libertarians, we should think and live as die-hard Christ-like individuals. Those who exercise the mind of Christ should never be divided. The mind of the Almighty is not divided. The Holy One‘s thinking is spelled out in His Word and those who follow Him live His Word as a way of life. It does not matter who you are or what you believe in your foolish, wicked heart. Your feelings are of no consequence. What matters is what your Creator says. Verse 9 ―The heart is deceitful above all things and beyond cure. Who can understand it?‖ Jeremiah 17:9; New International Version. Did you get that? God—your Creator, the Omnipotent ww221 One who reigns supreme—says,

Like outside forces ruling it, it seems to have a mind of its own. Now, this is the heart of the problem. This is the same ww222 unruly problem man has with his own heart.

If you foolishly get involved, having a sexual encounter with someone you have no business being with (someone who is not your spouse), emotional sin-filled feelings begin to overrule good sense.

For what I want to do I do not do, but what I hate I do.‖ Verse 16 ―And if I do what I do not want to do, I agree that the law is good.‖ Verse 17 ―As it is, it is no longer I myself who do it, but it is sin living in me.‖ Verse 18 ―I know that nothing good lives in me, that is, in my sinful nature.

No one wants to face up to what they do, to who they really are. When we commit sin, we don‘t want to call it sin, we‘d like to call it a sickness or a disease, like the real disease of cancer. We‘d like to place those same definitions on being an alcoholic, being drunk all the time, not able to control the desire to drink. We call it a disease. It‘s not a disease!

We need to overcome sin and condemn sin in our ww227 hearts and minds for what it is. All wrong doing is sin and everyone on the face of the earth is addicted to sin which makes us all adulterous. We all indulge in sin and must overcome and fight against our nature which is that universal, bad behavior of mankind. We must do everything within our power to rid bad behavior from our lives. We treat sin like it‘s some mere medical condition that we somehow succumb to. Many people act as if sin just came upon them without warning like food poisoning and all they need to do is go to the doctor and get treated for it. This is the asinine way we think in our self-made, sick society. Many of us have heard the heart-wrenching stories of those who have become addicted to various types of drugs, even over-the-counter prescription drugs. Of course, some are more destructive than others. Those are usually the ones that cause addiction sooner. I heard an unhappy story of a girl who was addicted to crack cocaine. She related how she became addicted the very first time. Sitting in a circle with a bunch of her foolish friends, they passed this crack cocaine around, inhaling it as you would a cigarette. As it passed on from person to person and each took a drag, she remembered something very frightening. As soon as the drug came to her and she put it to her lips, sucking it in, her mind was gone. As it went around the circle, she explained she had only a single thought: a calculation of how long it would be until each person in the

The next high you experience might be the one that literally takes your life. Perhaps you may be blessed and simply fall, hitting rock-bottom. Bottoming out usually entails a life-threatening overdose with the paramedics coming to resuscitate you from death. If so, the bles-sed hand of God was upon you, giving you a second chance. Possibly when you awaken in the hospital from your overdose, then you may reflect on your life and take time to meditate on your destructive behaviors. Again, what type of drug or what kind of addiction does not matter. Any destructive behavior can take your life. Gambling, drinking, never-thinking, over-eating, not eating enough, bad hygiene, chronic laziness, procrastination, any bad behaviors which you do not control will control you and become an addiction. Sexual addiction—one of the worst adulterous behaviors—is also the most common. Sex is the strongest urge in the human body; if not regulated, ruled by the laws of the ww231 Creator, this sin can ruin or take your life.

When we indulge in any addiction, we become adulterous, all the while deluding ourselves, disregarding our unfaithful behavior.

Verse 4 ―You adulterous people, don‘t you know that friendship with the world is hatred toward God? Anyone who chooses to be a friend of the world becomes an enemy of God.‖ James 4:4; NIV (New International Version)

Rid Yourself Of Adulterous Addictions

This is what it means to be an adulteress. This is what it means to be unfaithful to your Creator. This is how you ww233 completely fall from grace.

Beautiful Women Of The Media

Critics may frown on my decision to highlight these beautiful women within my book. Maybe the least they will say is it‘s stereotypical. But I tell you the truth, there‘s nothing stereotypical about any of these women. They are gorgeous creations from the Creator. Only the Creator God can manufacture such awesome beauty. I can hear the murmuring, complaining naysayers, ―Oh! What about make-up? What about plastic surgery?‖ What in the world! Who cares. As my mother would say, ―What does that have to do with the price of butter in China.‖ All the plastic surgery in the world can‘t emulate this beauty. These women were fashioned and formed from the bles-sed hand of God. The wicked, deceitful lies of the evolutionists cannot deny this plain, simple fact. This is my point, and one of the very important reasons why I placed these women here. The dumb and blind theories of evil-ution are just that—from the Evil One. Unfortunately, evil-ution, wickedly woven into the minds of some satanic scientists, has stupidfied them. Silly, theorized stupid-sticions have thrown the entire world off spiritually from clear, Godly conclusions which would be plain to see if spiritual eyes were given to see with. Millions who have adopted a created world without a Creator have condemned their own eyes to spiritual blindness. The miracle of sight was created by your Maker, an awesome design which evil-ution could never replicate no matter how many billions or trillions of years it would take. Later, we will briefly discuss the fallacies of evolution in this book.

The creation record of mankind has been maintained in the Maker‘s Word for those who faithfully believe and others who foolishly do not. God made man from the dust of the ground. He breathed into his nostrils and man became a living being. From man, He made woman; as the old, wise saying goes, ―God did not create Adam and Steve, He created Adam and Eve.‖ The Creator designed men and women with the ability to reproduce—to come together and produce fruit. No such ability was inherently designed for a same sex union to ww234 produce fruit.

It doesn‘t work that way because it wasn‘t designed that way. Please understand, we must speak plainly here. Only plain talk with is what‘s seriously needed in our confused world today. False, so-called political correctness is confused, sentimental nonsense from the author of confusion (the Evil One). Another more sincere and honest reason for placing these beautiful women in the book is because I‘m a mannn! And to see women delights my soul as the Creator God has designed men to be. Men must be men and women must be women. As a man, I enjoy looking at women. Now, I can almost see and hear the grumbling, unfaithful hearts of selfrighteous individuals condemning these statements of mine. May your condemnation fall on your own self-righteous head.

truth, a great many men and women somehow sadly miss out on this natural concept—a bles-sed understanding given as a gift from the Creator. This is a simple pleasure, which is free of charge. It costs you nothing unless you‘ve got some demented problem and instead of enjoying the simple sight of someone beautiful, you‘ve become some kind of stalker. With this carnal, sinful behavior, jail time may be in your near future, denying you the sight of anything beautiful; nevertheless, men should enjoy being men. And women should enjoy being women. Humankind should never desire the demented deceitful ways some have chosen to unnaturally ―crossover‖ to the other side. That‘s right! The Darth Vader dark side. A

Are you a beautiful woman? If so, consider it a blessing. It wasn‟t by some random, blind, cosmic choice, as some scientists foolishly believe. Your beautiful features were uniquely and personally selected by your Creator. An admonishment: The more Godly, beautiful character you build and maintain within you, the longer your beauty on the outside will radiate.

I recall Sophia Loren, being bombarded with questions regarding some roles she played in films, displaying her Godgiven femininity as a beautiful woman. Since many men enjoyed her beautiful female features, some who interviewed her foolishly questioned her ways, complaining they somehow brought down the accomplishments of other women.

Sophia commented (paraphrasing) that she enjoys being a woman. She feels that she is extremely blessed to have her God-given feminine ways—pure, lady-like qualities men admire and to inspire other women to emulate. The personality and character of Queen Esther (described in the scriptures) was also radiant with these awesome, female qualities. The Almighty God used her feminine ways to inspire the King to change his decree and support the Jewish people. Years ago, I was studying this very book and was moved to give a spiritual message to my daughter on the incredible story of Esther.

Some people are given more visible attractive features than others. However, we must remember what‘s more precious in the Almighty‘s sight. Verse 3 ―Do not let your adornment be merely outward—arranging the hair, wearing gold, or putting on fine apparel—‖ Verse 4 ―rather let it be the hidden person of the heart, with the incorruptible beauty of a gentle and quiet spirit, which is very precious in the sight of God.‖ 1 Peter 3:3-4; New King James Version. Those who build the more attractive beholding beauty of Godly character will be the everlasting winner of the Eternal‘s beauty contest. Trophies from the Lord never fade and can‘t ever be taken away. Warning: when discretion is lacking, outside beauty is rendered ugly, unattractive. Verse 22 ―Like a gold ring in a pig's snout is a beautiful woman who shows no discretion.‖ Proverbs 11:22; New International Version. Please remember, outward beauty may open some doors in this current world. But it is the beauty within established by living the ways of God which is the only way to open the doors of the Eternal‘s kingdom.

His creation? Whether homosexual acts or living a heterosexual sinful way of life, distortion within you takes place. Sexually speaking, whatever mixed up feelings you have regarding what gender you are is just that, mixed up feelings. Sexual contradictions in one‘s mind are feelings which do not have any rhyme or reason to the way of God, the mind of Christ. When people, children or adults, have these war like hot-flash feelings, they can bring on a world of confusion if ww241 not corrected.

Thinking, tasting, feeling something is good, doesn‘t make it good. For example, I believe all sane, rational minds would agree that all feelings of raping someone are wrong no matter how strong the belief or feelings warped minds may rationalize. Again, no matter what you feel, wrong is wrong and your Maker says, Verse 17 ―All wrongdoing is sin…‖ 1 John 5:17; New International Version. Your Creator condemns sin and commands the sinner to repent. If your (sins) wrongs go unrepented in the eyes of God, your penalty punishment is death, first and second if not corrected. You will be excluded from inheriting the kingdom of God. Verse 9 ―Do you not know that the wicked will not inherit the kingdom of God? Do not be deceived: Neither the sexually immoral nor idolaters nor adulterers nor male prostitutes nor homosexual offenders‖ Verse 10 ―nor thieves nor the greedy nor drunkards nor slanderers nor swindlers will inherit the kingdom of God.‖

1 Corinthians 6:9-10; New International Version. Please note, the King James Version reads: ―...neither fornicators, nor idolaters, nor adulterers, nor effeminate, nor abusers of themselves with mankind…‖ Your loving Creator did not design and create you into a changeable condition, male or female so you could deceive yourselves, decide to change your sex and live contrary to his law, the Eternal‘s way of life. THE WORD (Creator) did not create Girly Men, a term used by Governor Arnold Schwarzenegger or Girly Boys, a phrase used by author Ann Coulter and, of course, a phrase used by millions, Lady Boys describing a multitude of children born male who later on in life, confused by their sexuality, choose to become women in the flesh.

Today, we demonize the strong, striving warrior as war mongering, insensitive to the false, foolish political correctness of this evil, self righteous generation. Generations of men today are weaker than women, not just physically but mentally and spiritually as well. Seemingly today, women are more likely to practice stronger moral values. Unfortunately, some feminist women groups and individual members give the premise of feminists a bad name by

their actions. Here is a note-worthy quote by Al Rantel. : ―The feminists have been responsible. You know the worst thing the feminists have done in my opinion in the society, they‘ve made women more like men. Women are willing to give it up, woman are willing to shack up. Men are great, men are happy; they don‘t have to buy the cow, they get the milk for free and women are shacking up, they‘re having babies out of wedlock with guys, the guy may be a dead-beat and walk away from his responsibility. Women are responsible for that because they‘ve let men do that.‖ Our self-indulgent sinful ways have robbed the world of God‘s magnificent benefits (the basic family package) which a loving, hard-working father and nurturing mother brings.

Chicago Wisdom From The Hood Side Note
To those heterosexuals within America and the rest of the world: you will not escape condemnation, you who condemn the homosexuals for their choice of how they live. Many of them will receive great mercy from the Lord—but you will not. Some have simply deceived themselves, believing they were born that way. You claim you don‘t sin as they do. But your way of life, in many respects is much worse. You outwardly sin with as many partners as you can. Affecting them not only with diseases that spread across the entire world but with unwanted children, children who grow up abandoned, living very lonely, unproductive tragic lives. Millions of these abandoned children are not being nourished within a proper home. They‘re void, without a mother and father to love and guide them in the way they should go.

You constantly sin producing offspring which you turn into sinners, helping to throw the ways of the Creator behind their backs as you have done. Never being taught to love one another and respect mankind, you have monsterdized your offspring, making them a menace to society. These children commit rape and murder and all kinds of suffering upon the earth because of your self-indulgent sins and ungodly ways. Your condemnation will be most severe, for you are without any excuse whatsoever; moreover, Mr. and Mrs. Heterosexual, because you are so desperately lacking in character or any moral fiber within your being, perhaps castration will be the next disease darkening your door. Not willing to atone and repent of your sins, you commit one sin after another, building up your Tower of Babel abominations upon the earth. Those you don‘t want, you abort—murder—discarding life as a lifestyle decision. Children you choose to keep, you kill slowly, starving them from proper education and a basic moral foundation which would enable them to live a successful God-fearing life. Stop pointing the finger at others and recognize the horrible, so-called straight world is deceitfully crooked. Don‘t you dare ever raise your sinful head above the global gay world. Yes, their sins are visible for the world to see, but your sadistic, secret sins, which are not secret to your maker, will soon be revealed and your shame will be most unrelenting.

God Is Not A Respecter Of Persons Acts 10:34; American Standard Version

We must all understand, all unrepented sins will not escape your Creator‘s condemnation. Any prejudice you harbor has no place with the Eternal and heavily judged will you be by the Eternal if you continue to persist with your hatefilled prejudiced ways. No one on this earth can raise their head above another, foolishly feeling they‘re somehow more righteous. If you do, this only confirms one thing, you are not. Again, sin is sin. And all sins will be written down on the same list. This understanding reminds me of the lyrics by the rap group Run-DMC. “There‟s another point in life you should not miss. Do not be a fool who‟s prejudiced because we‟re all written down on the same list. It‟s like that, and that‟s the way it is.” True Godly love is the key to purifying your mind from all prejudices. Besides understanding this key, the Creator instructs us not to do what our carnal nature wants but basically to do the opposite. Verse 32 ―If you love those who love you, what credit is that to you? Even ‗sinners‘ love those who love them.‖ Verse 33 ―And if you do good to those who are good to you, what credit is that to you? Even ‗sinners‘ do that.‖ Luke 6:32-33; New International Version. This is a simple principle; in other words, we need to spread our love around even to those who don‘t look like we look or like what we like. Focus not only on what you want, but look beyond your likes and dislikes, put them aside for a time, and focus on ww245 others.

Regarding true expressions of love, I have a very special memory of Tammy Bruce from the first time I ever heard her speak. This was many years ago, I believe she was on KFI 640AM. It was late at night—actually, early morning around midnight, California time. I was on a security shift, volunteer security patrol, watching over the property built and dedicated to the Creator to be utilized by the Worldwide Church of God. The beautiful voice of Tammy Bruce came on the air. This was book night. She was reading a book by Katharine Hepburn called . She was reading in her impressionist voice of Katharine Hepburn—it was very amusing. In the future, if she will allow me, I would like to place the audio of her reading about what love is on our WorldEmergency website. The book Me by Katharine Hepburn, contains a very special Godly principle explaining what true love is. Never before have I ever heard what love is explained like this. Tammy Bruce reading what Katharine Hepburn said about Spencer Tracy made it that much more special.

Tammy Bruce reading... ―It seems to me I discovered what ‗I love you‘ really means. It means I put you and your interests and your comfort ahead of my own interests and my own comfort because I love you. What does this mean? I love you. What does this mean? Think. We use this expression very carelessly. Love has nothing to do with what you are expecting to get—only with what you are expecting to give—which is everything. What you receive in return varies. But it really has no connection with what you give—which is everything. You give because you love and you cannot help giving. If you are very lucky, you may be loved back. That is delicious but it does not necessarily happen. It really implies total devotion. And total is allencompassing—the good of you, the bad of you. I am aware that I must include the bad. I loved Spencer Tracy. He and his interests and his demands came first. This was not easy for me because I was definitely a me me me person. ―It was a unique feeling that I had for S.T. I would have done anything for him. My feelings—how can you describe them?—the door between us was always open. There were no reservations of any kind. He didn‘t like this or that. I changed this and that. They might be qualities which I personally valued. It did not matter. I changed them. Food—we ate what he liked. We did what he liked. We lived a life which he liked. This gave me great pleasure. The thought that this was pleasing him. Certainly I had not felt this way with my other beaux. I was looking for them to please me. It is a very different relationship. It‘s like a wonderful cocktail party. But

it ain‘t love. Luddy loved me—in my sense of the word. He did everything he possibly could to make me happy. Luddy took care of me and gave me confidence. I took care of Spencer and gave him confidence. I shared the best two types of relationships. ―I loved Dad and Mother. They always had the last word for me. If they wanted it—I did it. And happily—also they loved me—and I felt this and it made me very happy. There is an enormous difference between love and like. Usually we use the word ―love‖ when we really mean like. I think that very few people ever mean love. I think that like is a much easier relationship. It is based on sense. A blind spot— love.‖ A media giant in the radio and TV world who on many occasions exemplifies a notable example of selflessness is Sean Hannity.

and supporting our troops is overwhelming in scope. Within this limited space, true justice could not adequately explain the giving ways of Sean; however, there is one special event I would like to focus on. A very moving occurrence happened during his radio show. Millions who listen to the show daily may recall this special moment. Sean‘s assistant, Alicia, was giving short, impromptu interviews to strangers on the street. I believe this was New York City. Through all the jokes and laughter, questions were being asked of citizens whether they knew the name of the Vice President, the Secretary of State, and other high ranking members of the current administration, basic questions we should know yet few answered correctly. This is usually a humorous situation highlighting our shameful ignorance, however, a very sobering moment occurred when they interviewed a girl named Kelly. Kelly said she was 20. She explained she was homeless because she lost her job. She said she had family but they were wrapped up doing their own thing, and her mother wouldn‘t let her back home. She said she was currently staying in one of the shelters. Sean Hannity carefully continued to ask her basic questions, such as, ―Do you have any drug or alcohol problems?‖ Kelly answered, ―No.‖ Sean continued, ―So, you‘ve really just lost your job, you don‘t have anything, or any family to help you?‖ Kelly said, ―No.‖ Regarding a job, she stated she could work as a cashier. Sean responded by saying, ―As a cashier, you ought to be able to find something in New York.‖ I want to stop here and explain. This was a very heartA graceful look of love-four-#4 A graceful look of love-four-#4

wrenching moment. You could literally feel something extraordinary about to take place, almost as if the Almighty was massaging Sean Hannity‘s heart. All of a sudden, Sean responded, ―I‘ll tell you what, I‘m going to give you a hundred dollars. The next thing I‘m going to do is get your phone number, and I‘m going to give out the phone number of our station WABC.‖ He continued, ―Go and give your number to that girl (Alicia), stay with her and I‘m going to tell her to take care of you.‖ Sean added, ―God bless you. I hope you get out of that situation. Hang in there and I promise you, there‘s a better day on the other side for you.‖ Kelly responded with a very appreciative, ―Thank you and God bless you too.‖ I must explain how I felt after listening to this conversation; I was overwhelmed with Godly emotion. You know, the feeling, your heart all of a sudden gets real warm and you feel like crying and shouting with joy at the same time. This was the feeling. It was a wonderful feeling that occurs in those rare moments when humankind ww246 intervenes for humankind. You can imagine the action in the studio as it began to buzz. Sean instructed his staff to keep answering the phones to see if anyone could give Kelly a job in the New York area. He continued, ―Phones are ringing off the hook now; I‘m sure you‘ll get the money.‖ Also, Mark Levin who was in the studio said, ―I‘m kicking in a hundred bucks.‖ Then he changed it to five hundred, and Sean said, ―I tell you what, I‘ll kick in five hundred bucks as well.‖

By that time, tears were racing down my face as if someone poured a bucket of spring water over my head. Again, I was overwhelmed with Godly emotion.

Throughout the dog-eat-dog back-biting has become so vicious that the anger and hatred is more audible than any real communication. Very little talk is heard. Talk, on so-called talk radio, is but a sound-byte. Screams and rage are the main themes of the program. This nasty wailing (or, to use a biblical term, weeping and gnashing of teeth) will end tragically with the three-step death program of free speech. Step 1: Homegrown terrorist attacks against opposing foes unsettling citizens throughout the country. Step 2: Our nation‘s economy freefalling, and a paranoid public frightened about more to come. Step 3: A government inept and unable to stop chaotic events (claiming political correctness) is forced to cut off all media—not just talk radio—and, beyond the socalled fairness doctrine, pass new hate-crime legislation. All opposing views will soon be silent. No clarification, no rebuttal, and sadly, no truth. As the Creator says, concerning the future of His Word of Truth: Verse 11 "'The days are coming,' declares the Sovereign LORD, 'when I will send a famine through the land—not a famine of food or a thirst for water, but a famine of hearing the words of the LORD." Verse 12 "Men will stagger from sea to sea and wander from north to east, searching for the word of the LORD, but they will not find it. '" Amos 18:11-12; NIV (New International Version) Since this is the soon-coming future of even the word of God which will take place worldwide, it will certainly be the truth for Babylon Radio Report at www.worldemergencynews.com

Regarding The Media There Is Good News And Bad News
A great many American news stations literally circle the globe influencing the international community in good and bad ways. Unfortunately ever since the 2000 presidential elections, most of the current news reporting coming out of the United States has been spitefully negative. Big time biased, bitter reports spew poisonous accusations via the airwaves all around the world against former President Bush, his entire administration, and America as a whole, and now the political right side of the media is against President Obama.

Chicago Wisdom From The Hood Side Note

A message to the news stations which fit the unfaithful, treasonous shoes: you too should be ashameth. Bow down your head and repent. You should sincerely loathe yourselves for your disrespectful conduct. Your wicked actions have supported the evil minds of our nation‘s enemies. What will you do when you no longer have a country which you have helped beat to death? Who then will take you in? All your lovers will despise you and treat you as the unfaithful whore you have become. Yes, you have been unfaithful to your commander inchief, hiding behind a façade shield of so-called ―free journalism.‖ But very soon, your journey will end and your reports will be free no more.

I implore all of you to consider this rebuke carefully for you have viciously bitten the freedom hand that fed you. And from your venomous snake bite, death will come to your faithful, loving husband. At that time you disrespectful, rebellious children of the corn, will come to an unthinkable end.

Hosea 7:9; New International Version Audio MP3 #32 As I have stated before, I was very grateful for the voice Lou Dobbs, formerly on CNN. In a world which revels in unreasonable nonsense, Mr. Dobbs has been a voice of reason, especially in regard to our nation‘s illegal immigration woes. One special show segment, Mr. Dobbs reminded our country about a historical statement made long ago by a former president. Lou Dobbs explained, ―Almost a century ago, President Theodore Roosevelt expressed his beliefs about what it means to be an American. In particular, the importance of being an immigrant in this country.‖

―In the first place, we should insist that if the immigrant who comes here in good faith, becomes an American and assimilates himself to us, he shall be treated on an exact equality with everyone else. For it is an outrage to discriminate against any such man because of creed, or birthplace, or origin. But this is predicated upon the man becoming in very fact an American, and nothing but an American. ―There can be no divided allegiance here. Any man who says he is an American, but something else also, isn‘t an

American at all. We have room for but one flag, the American flag. And this excludes the red flag, which symbolizes all wars against liberty and civilization just as much as it excludes any foreign flag of a nation to which we are hostile. ―We have room for but one language here, and that is the English language. And we have room for but one sole loyalty, and that is a loyalty to the American people.‖ Unfortunately, we have not heeded the words of Theodore Roosevelt. From that day, Americans are becoming increasingly worse, nor do we heed the words of our God-given leadership of today. That‘s right. President George Walker Bush may be the last hurrah of hope the has left. Mr. Bill O‘Reilly, commentator on FOX News, strives also on his show to rally the nation behind our president who is not just the leader of our nation, but a leader of the entire free world. Sadly, as the sadistic media systematically tries to knock him down, the free world will be knocked down right along with it. FOX News Bill O‘Reilly outlines President Bush‘s war on terror.

Unfortunately, the Iraq conflict has proven to be much more difficult than the Bush administration had anticipated and so the conflict rages on. The countries that actively help America are few but growing: Jordan, Kuwait, the Emirates, Egypt, and Afghanistan are all now reliable allies in the war on terror. We need to keep those people on our side, that is why the ports debacle involving the Emirates is so serious. Despite the chaos in Iraq, the Bush administration has been effective in keeping al Qaeda pinned down on the defensive. ―Our intelligence is much better than it was pre-9/11. Our military is now battle-hardened and those are important things. Talking Points believes the Bush administration deserves credit for bringing the fight to the terrorists. It‘s depressing that so few Americans understand what the stakes are. The press continuous to quibble over minor matters and the far left continues to undermine the war on terror every way it can. So that‘s what‘s in play and we are talking life and death here, not partisan politics. I hope this memo wises some people up. It‘s a brutal world, not some theoretical game. Nothing is more important than winning the war on terror.‖

Mr. Bill O‘Reilly is correct in his stated premise. It‘s true

the companies which are run by countries who desire to purchase the privilege of running our ports are, in fact, important allies in the war on terror. But the premise arising from that fact will soon fade. Here‘s a faithful future scenario: warm, friendly relations we seemingly now have with foreign countries mainly in the Middle East will turn callous and cold. Anything owned and operated within by foreign countries will be used and weighed heavily against as troubles continue to plague our nation with terrorist attacks and threats. Unfortunately, when those terrorists are successful our nation will seek retaliation. When America‘s military retaliates, the hateful resentment within the international community will escalate. The confused, contradictory international community that despises the superpower status of the United States will always be at odds with us. Many jealous, grudge-filled nations in the U.N. will never agree with any offensive or defensive measures taken by America‘s military might against her enemies. Just as the hate-filled global community rallies against Israel as they defend themselves against the multitude of enemies who surround them. Along with escalating resentment from outside wicked forces around the world, America is now being taken over and conquered from within. Discussed on the Hannity and Colmes show, Pat Buchanan‘s book spells out a sinister scenario around the year 2050—civil war-like divisions threatening the breakup of America.

They‘re proud Mexicans. They come here to work. They love Mexico. They love the music, they love their culture. They don‘t want their kids to become Americans. They‘re proud Mexicans. They march under Mexican flags. What we‘ve got to say to them is, ‗Folks, we‘ve got nothing against Mexico, but immigrants we want here are people who want to become Americans.‘‖ State of Emergency: (synopsis) Pat Buchanan reveals that, slowly but surely, the great American Southwest is being re-conquered by Mexico. These lands—which many Mexicans believe are their birthright—are being detached ethnically, linguistically, and culturally from the United States by a deliberate policy of the Mexican regime. (http://booksxyz.com/profile3048105.php) Now unfortunately, in the year 2050, Pat Buchanan nor anyone else in America will have the opportunity to live in America to see whether this scenario even pans out.

Listen folks, those of you who live in America, please wake up to this sobering fact: our nation is destined to fall, fatally fall, by the hand of foreign enemies within. That‘s right, America will fall from grace. Our protection of grace will be taken from us. Verse 43 ―The alien who lives among you will rise above you higher and higher, but you will sink lower and lower.‖ Deuteronomy 28:43; New International Version. Now, if you don‘t have your head in the unspiritual sand, you will understand this is current news today regarding the illegal aliens currently infiltrating our country. Whether you ignorantly feel these scriptures do not pertain to our nation is immaterial. This problem is our dire status today. America is destined to lose its superpower rank, in part due to the foreigners who have taken us over. In the Eternal‘s Word is a play by play account of what is now happening in America. Verse 9 ―Foreigners sap his strength, but he does not realize it. His hair is sprinkled with gray, but he does not notice.‖ Hosea 7:9; New International Version. This is the game of the century, the ever increasing un-United States versus the more solidified, united illegal aliens.

I will gather them against you from all around and will strip you in front of them, and they will see all your nakedness.‖ Ezekiel 16:37; New International Version. The Eternal is speaking simultaneously to the ancient house of Israel and the future house of Israel of which America is a big part. God changes not and His Word applies to all ages and generations. The Almighty‘s blessings and curses will more intensely affect our current generation simply because this generation is closer to the end. Verse 44 ―He will lend to you, but you will not lend to him.

Again, Mr. Bill O‘Reilly‘s premise is not the point. As changing political winds shift from good to evil, like the deadly effects of the head of a mushroom nuclear cloud blowing over our nation, so will the nice, neutral sentiment some nations currently have for America. The attitude of these seemingly friendly nations typifies that old song sung by the O‘Jays titled . The beginning lyrics are: “(What they do! They smile in your face) All the time they want to take your place, The back stabbers (back stabbers) …” There is a scripture that represents this two-faced attitude as well. Verse 3 ―Do not drag me away with the wicked, with those who do evil, who speak cordially with their neighbors but harbor malice in their hearts.‖ Psalm 28:3; New International Version. New King James Version reads, ―...Who speak peace to their neighbors, But evil is in their hearts.‖ And this, my fellow Americans, is what we will increasingly face internationally as the hearts of men grow cold and nation rises up against nation, kingdom against kingdom. The point is: those foreign companies will increasingly exercise their heavy influence in the day to day operations of those ports. Ports attached to the mainland of our nation and unprotected states and cities are a wide open door to increasingly hate-filled nations with access. A terrorist can detonate a weapon, such as, a chemical-biological agent or a dirty bomb that spews toxic radiation. These weapons can devastate our economy and total way of life even if the bomb itself did not harm a single American. This deadly domino effect can begin

before any ship‘s cargo enters a single port. When a weapon of mass destruction with America‘s name on it blows up, destruction and death will be in the air—no matter how the wind blows. And who knows what devastation those diseasefilled winds may bring. This disastrous terrorist scenario can take place no matter who‘s running the ports—especially nations with newly formulated, hateful incentives. Incentives to kill Americans are many and plenty. Internationally cheap labor terrorists are available in abundance and inexpensive as a dime a dozen—many (human bombs walking) are already here in . America!

Come all illegals. Come by the millions. Overwhelm us and destroy our economy. Please bring with you our enemies from around the world until they blow us up till kingdom come. The argument for even the mild-mannered middle eastern nations is: they‘re our allies. We rely on them in the war on terror. They mean no harm. Well, that‘s ignorant, naïve thinking at its best.

As in the continuous case against Israel, old enemy nations can join forces with newly formed enemy nations opposed to America, combining their efforts like a pack of wild animals possessed by evil spirits, they can at any time attack the without warning. Instead of being their ally, we will become a liability.

No matter how future port sales turn out politically or what dummy corporation‘s names have been deceivingly placed, the truth will be plain enough for those who have eyes to see. This hidden truth along with the U.S. attempting to thwart their hidden agenda with new reforms and border controls will be all the alienation the new alien nations will need to change friends into foes, allies into enemies.

They don‘t even need to threaten us with terrorist attacks using nuclear bombs or chemical-biological weapons. These nations can simply shut down their selfish interest. Entire operations can be put on hold, keeping all goods and services from reaching these ports, because of foreign influence over that port. Halting the flow of goods and services to their destinations throughout America, this wicked action will literally hold our national economy for ransom. The U.S. will be laden with increasing trouble, hemorrhaging our life‘s blood from seaport to seaport. Major tribulations are our destiny simply because we declare the rightful family alliance to Israel.

To Kyoto or not Kyoto, that is the question? Slanderous accusations from the global community are given because the United States government currently won‘t sign the Kyoto Treaty.

This is a simple game of life and death where the one who loses dies, and the victor rejoices. The victor will be your enemy taking over your country and completely ravishing your land. I must give you this sober warning. You have a great many enemies within your midst; moreover, you‘re surrounded by those who hate you on all sides. Please I beg you, you must understand. America—your mighty brother—is in your corner, ready to come to your aid and be by your side at a moment‘s notice. Without her, you and your nation will be as good as dead. Stop BBC-biting, chewing up the hand that is able to protect you. The Almighty has blessed you both, backto-back brothers, to watch and protect each other‘s back.

A recent poll of British Muslims found that 7% found suicide bombing acceptable, 20% found it acceptable if it was directed against the British military and 37% found it acceptable if it was directed against British Jews. That means half a million people in Britain have a neo-nazi mentality and there‘s an economic price for that situation.‖ 08/10/06 Although removed from the two most powerful offices held by men, may the Almighty as a memorial in history grant that grace of greatness to President George Bush and Prime Minister Tony Blair.

Grace from the Almighty is like an extension of your life when the doctor has given you no chance for survival.

But by the grace of God, His miracle hand steps in, changing your critical condition to stable and restored. The grace of God is like when all the gates of the kingdom are securely locked up and as you stand there, devoid of all hope, violently weeping, you turn to walk away, but Christ Himself appears and graciously opens the gate for you. ww258

planned to go directly to the judge to ask favor on the boy‘s behalf. Before going to the judge he asked the boy if he prayed and gave him an example of what a prayer is. He said, ―When you play basketball, and you shoot the ball, don‘t you hope it will go through the hoop?‖ The boy indicated, yes. Then the preacher said, ―That‘s all prayer is.‖ The complete truth is: what makes a prayer successful is by applying both words, hope and faith, fusing them together, combining them with ww261 keeping the ways of God. . Paganized counterfeit words, such as, wishing on a star and holding onto a ―lucky‖ charm, are deceptions indicating ww262 you don‘t need God. Wishing for something and foolishly deceiving yourself that lady luck gave it to you is not anything like the glorious grace of God. Again, God is good and all good things come from God. Any and all grace God gives you will most certainly be good for you. Grace from the Eternal will never harm you, unlike unreliable luck. You may think you‘re lucky when someone on the street stops you, giving you a job, thinking this job is something good when it really turned out to be a job from Hades itself. As you quickly found out after working there, your boss and co-workers were card-carrying Hades members appointed by the Evil One himself.

We often hear people say, ―Wish me luck.‖ When you hear these empty words, grace them back with God‘s Words, in prayer, and simply say, ―May the Creator‘s blessings be on you.‖ Bless them by changing their words and honoring God, and perhaps God‘s grace will honor them.

Literally, there are too many to count and it‘s impossible to express them to you with pen and ink; nevertheless, there is one that I am graced with time after time, times infinity. Because I am perpetually late due to countless hours of foolish procrastination, I always (it seems) arrive much too late to catch my scheduled flights. I‘ve been richly blessed to travel throughout the world to 33 countries. No, I‘m not bragging, but, I want to emphasize the problem I have had throughout the world in traveling to 33 countries—and many of those same countries 33 times over—I have been late. On many occasions this unending sin of mine (procrastination) has nearly caused me to miss some extremely important meetings. I‘m constantly on the brink of losing those few once in a lifetime, awesome opportunities. On one special trip, I was irresponsibly two hours late; however, the intervening grace of God took effect. My plane, due to take off two hours ago, was late one hour. All baggage and passengers were securely in their seats on the plane. Thankfully, an hour later, the plane was still waiting for me

at the gate. The grace of God did not allow the plane to take off until I was safe on board. This is the magnificent, unshakable grace of God. And this grace of God has been extended to me over and over in this same way and in countless other crazy situations I have foolishly placed myself in. Now perhaps, O ye of little faith might argue, I was just lucky! Besides you say, ―Why would God make everyone else late just to get you, undeserving as you are, on the plane?‖ Well, to answer ww267 your last question first, .

I have heard countless statements from lay members in many churches, as well as high profile ministers on TV and radio, vehemently stating, ―I am not under the law of Moses; I am under grace.‖ Many make this statement because they heard someone else say it. Some actually took the time to read God‘s Word to prove it. Verse 14 ―For sin shall not be your master, because you are not under law, but under grace.‖ Romans 6:14; New International Version. This scripture is crystal clear. There should be no misunderstanding. It means exactly what it says, no argument about it. First of all, sin should not be anyone‘s ww271 master. Sin is transgression against God‘s law, against the Eternal‘s way of life. The Creator‘s desire is for His creation to learn, living up to His standards even to the point of perfection just as the Almighty boldly commanded Abram. The Creator gave Abram this commandment before his name was changed to Abraham, meaning father of the faithful. Verse 1 ―And when Abram was ninety years old and nine, Jehovah appeared to Abram, and said unto him, I am God Almighty; walk before me, and be thou perfect.‘‖ Genesis 17:1; American Standard Version.

ww272

Here is the goal we all must strive to reach and what the Creator will ultimately expect from all mankind. This is the same reason we must strive to live our lives free from sin. And if you are free from sin, you will be free of the punishment. Being free from punishment means you are free from the penalties of breaking the law. There is no violation to pay when there is no sin committed. This simply means you‘re not under the law. Again, why, pray tell, are you not under and free from the penalties of the law? Drum roll, please. The reaww273 son is simple.

Punishment and penalties of laws not broken by you, do not apply to you. Obeying the laws of God which is the way of God, slides you under the safe category of God‘s grace. This is the powerful, spiritual transformation which takes place when sin is no longer our master. Instead of being slaves to sin, we become slaves to righteousness. The Eternal says, Verse 12 ―Therefore do not let sin reign in your mortal body so that you obey its evil desires.‖ Verse 13 ―Do not offer the parts of your body to sin, as instruments of wickedness, but rather offer yourselves to God, as those who have been brought from death to life; and offer the parts of your body to him as instruments of righteousness.‖ Romans 6:12-13; New International Version. As we repent and turn from living the

wrong way of life, from wicked ways which displease the Eternal, to right ways that please Him, we are transformed into a ww274 righteous living slave to God. Living this way moves you from under the penalties of the law to the graceful side of God‘s favor. Verse 14 ―For sin shall not be your master, because you are not under law, but under grace.‖ Verse 15 ―What then? Shall we sin because we are not under law but under grace? By no means!‖ (New King James says, ―Certainly not!‖) Verse 16 ―Don‘t you know that when you offer yourselves to someone to obey him as slaves, you are slaves to the one whom you obey—whether you are slaves to sin, which leads to death, or to obedience, which leads to righteousness?‖ Verse 17 ―But thanks be to God that, though you used to be slaves to sin, you wholeheartedly obeyed the form of teaching to which you were entrusted.‖ Verse 18 ―You have been set free from sin and have become slaves to righteousness.‖ Romans 6:14-18; New International Version.

Why does humankind always fall seriously short when they try and struggle to keep the righteous commandments of God? You cannot successfully keep and live by the ways of God with its full spiritual intent by your own strength. But you most certainly can by the Almighty‟s power and strength.
Verse 13 ―I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me.‖ Philippians 4:13; NKJV (New King James Version)

Forty-one Selah (Think on this) - Page B

Are You Under Grace Or Under the Law?

Please understand, everyone on the face of the earth has sinned and, unfortunately in many cases, continues to sin. The Eternal commands His creation to Verse 17 ―Repent, for the kingdom of heaven is near.‖ Matthew 4:17; New International Version. The kingdom of heaven is the kingdom of God. It is that same kingdom everyone is instructed to pray for by Christ Himself. He says, The Almighty‘s kingdom is the soon coming government of God, a government which will rule the entire earth. That‘s right! A one world government ruled by the Creator Himself, replacing all current governments of men. This is the Almighty‘s supreme foundational good news. He says, Verse 15 ―...The time is fulfilled, and the kingdom of God is at hand. Repent, and believe in the gospel.‖ Mark 1:15; New King James Version. This is the ultimate goal. This is why Christ tells us to repent. Those who do (overcome sin) will share in the blessings of the king of king‘s soon-coming kingdom. ww276 Yes,

Christ‘s sacrifice was absolutely awesome, more than any one of us could ever know. So magnificently tremendous was this feat, His sacrifice covered not only our past hideous sins but our future, unfaithful, ungrateful sins which we will commit. That is, if we sincerely repent.

Payments for Sin Side Note
For example, when you break the law and your sins find you out, you will pay the penalty to the full amount that
247 247

Are You Under Grace Or Under the Law?

Continued Payments for Sin Side Note
law requires you to pay, whether fine or jail time. The law you violate and break will break you. But let‘s say, your father steps in and comes to court. He begins to beg, pleading, and bleeding on your behalf to pay the penalty for you instead. Finally, when he is done, the judge is greatly impressed. He says to your father, ―I‘m overwhelmed; I‘ve heard many stories about you. I know you to be a righteous man, of world renown and highly respected. You indeed can pay the penalty in his stead, not only for past sins committed but for the future ones as well. Providing, he sincerely and completely repents by coming back before this court, renouncing any new sins and strives to live in newness of life, a life without sin. If he sins again and does not repent from his wicked ways, he will be under the full weight of the law and it will reign over his head. The penalty will remain with him until he is dead.‖ This side note is a basic example of what Christ has done for us. You cannot keep on sinning and hide your evil sins under your very own deceitful rug calling it God‘s grace. Verse 1 ―What shall we say, then? Shall we go on sinning so that grace may increase?‖ Verse 2 ―By no means! We died to sin; how can we live in it any longer?‖ Verse 3 ―Or don‘t you know that all of us who were baptized into Christ Jesus were baptized into his death?‖ Romans 6:13; New International Version. Moving down to Verse 11 ―In the same way, count yourselves dead to sin but alive to God in Christ Jesus.‖ Verse 12 ―Therefore do not let sin reign in your

mortal body so that you obey its evil desires.‖ Romans 6:1112; New International Version. Here through the scriptures, we have come full circle. Remember Verse 17 ―But God be thanked that though you were slaves of sin, yet you obeyed from the heart that form of doctrine to which you were delivered. Romans 6:17; New King James Version. This scripture is boldly plain. Faithful obedience to the way of God must continue, especially by those who claim to be of Christ. We need to maintain faith, wholeheartedly obey and live as a way of life the commands of Christ, the teachings which, as the scripture says, must be obeyed from the heart. This goes hand in hand with what is said in Jude Verse 3 ―Beloved, while I was very diligent to write to you concerning our common salvation, I found it necessary to write to you exhorting you to contend earnestly for the faith which was once for all delivered to the saints.‖ Verse 4 ―For certain men have crept in unnoticed, who long ago were marked out for this condemnation, ungodly men, who turn the grace of our God into lewdness (other versions read, a license for immorality) and deny the only Lord God, Our Lord Jesus Christ.‖ Jude 3-4; New King James Version. We finally end this segment of grace with a graceful warning. Remember: it‘s a dreadful thing to continue to sin and fall into the hands of the living God. Verse 26 ―If we deliberately keep on sinning after we have received the knowledge of the truth, no sacrifice for sins is left,‖ Verse 27 ―but only a fearful expectation of judgment and of raging fire that will consume the enemies of God.‖ Verse 28 ―Anyone who re249 249

Age of 42 Book Summary
As the catastrophic ways from the governments of man are dissolved, and replaced by the government of GOD, tragically only a remnant will survive—perhaps as little as 10% of our global population. Scenario of slaughter: Out of 7 billion souls alive today, 6.3 billion lives will be horrifically cut short. However, unlike the scary fairy Hollywood tales with nicely-tied, red-bow, happy endings, the age of man won‘t end this way. This unthinkable experience of death and destruction, seared on the minds of those surviving few, will truly have no precedent in mankind‘s history to compare it with. Verse 21 ―For then there will be great tribulation as has not been since the beginning of the world until this time, no, nor ever shall be.‖ Matthew 24:21; New King James Version (NKJV) What Should You Do Before the Tribulation Age of 42 gives you insight, guidance, and direction for what you should do before that fateful day is set before you.

If their marriage is not going well, they are afraid of losing their spouse. People sick with a serious illness are afraid of losing their life. Well, I‘ll tell you what I‘m afraid of.

But things that are in our control, those are usually the ww283 things we are irresponsible with. Well, speaking for myself, that‘s why I have so much trouble. There was a noteworthy quote in the movie , portrayed by Denzel Washington.

The learned minister realized all his foolish, stupid mistakes were of his own making. Malcolm X spoke this very simple but profound statement:

But I am still very concerned about how much time I‘ve wasted ww284 and continue to waste.

For 21 years, exactly half my entire life, I‘ve been privileged to know what God requires of me and what He has blessed me with the ability to do on this earth. Sadly, I‘m nowhere near accomplishing those things which should already be accomplished. In many cases, I have failed miserably.

We cannot do it by ourselves, on our own. But we cannot procrastinate either and just leave it by the way-side, focusing instead on our own pet-projects. Things we daydream of having—things that delight us, make us happy personally—are privileged things which don‘t require much effort, work or pain. This is usually why there‘s not much gain. No pain, no gain is a real truism. A memorable reminder of this spiritual principle was in a film. The half-brother of Spock displayed powers of healing. The Enterprise crew was under the illusion that Spock‘s half-brother, Sybok, healed them from their pain, past pains they continued to carry around within themselves even though the sad experiences were long ago.

The Enterprise crew was amazed that their pain seemed to have vanished. Thrilled and dumbfounded, they implored Captain Kirk to undergo this mesmerizing miracle. Bones approached the Captain and said, ―Jim, you gotta be open about this.‖ Captain said, ―About what? That I have made wrong choices in my life? That I turned left when I should have turned right? I know what my weaknesses are. I don‘t need Sybok to take me on a tour of them.‖

your normal duties is your unique calling. It doesn‘t have to be something grandiose—it can be something very simple— but whatever it is, it is unique for you. The Creator has tailormade your special calling, directly for you and no one else can ww291 do it. The role was not for another person; the script ww292 wasn‘t written for someone else. Everyone should live up to the talents given to them. Here the Almighty‘s Word is also plain. Hiding your talents and doing nothing with them is an extremely serious offense. Verse 28 ―‗Take the talent from him and give it to the one who has the ten talents.‘‖ Verse 29 ―‗For everyone who has will be given more, and he will have an abundance. Whoever does not have, even what he has will be taken from him.‘‖ Verse 30 ―‗And throw that worthless servant outside, into the darkness, where there will be weeping and gnashing of teeth.‘‖ Matthew 25:28-30; New International Version. It will be you, and you alone, who will have to face your Creator. Knowing how successful or unsuccessful you were in achieving your Maker‘s will is biblically crucial. Verse 4 ―Show me, O Lord, my life‘s end and the number of my days; let me know how fleeting is my life. Psalm 39:4; New International Version. The basic seventy years you‘re given to live, or eighty if you have the strength, goes by in a flash.

the Lord pass you by. Don‘t be deceived. This spiritual freeway ww293 is not free; you were invited, especially picked to drive on it.

You must get spiritually busy. Put your God-given talents the Almighty Maker has created in you to work. Stop burying them, allowing talents to rot within the unproductive sin of your mind. Again, this is the Eternal‘s freeway. His freeway leads you to eternal life. At this time in man‘s history, time is not on anyone‘s side. Our lives quickly pass by, flying away. Verse 10 ―The length of our days is seventy years—or eighty, if we have the strength; yet their span is but trouble and sorrow, for they quickly pass, and we fly away.‖ Psalm 90:10; New International Version. Living seventy years in vain is not how any one of us desires to end our life. I remember the song by Tremaine Hawkins, ―Holy One, I never want to let You down.‖ The lyrics are very profound. “Day is almost night, I don‟t want to lose this fight, I‟ve fooled around much too long. Now I‟ve been lax, but I don‟t want to look back, I know that I‟ve done wrong. Give me the strength I need, to be able to succeed, and I will heed to Your every command. And to everyone I‟ll show, my purpose and my goal, and to You, I‟ll be able to stand. Chorus: Holy One, I never want to let you down no, no more.”

Understand The Faithful Will Live Forever Grow In The Grace And Knowledge

Today is a beautiful day. Funny thing—it‘s always a beautiful day, but we don‘t glorify and honor God as we should every day. Every day should be a beautiful day when the Eternal blesses us to wake up. We have the privilege of being able to get on our knees and pray to our Creator, who has always been there for us. There has never been a time when He has not been there. I realize I have made this statement many times but we need to reflect on it. The same reflection should be maintained when we say, ―Thy Kingdom come, Thy will be done.‖ As the man of God, Dr. Hoeh, said, ―Do you ww294 know what that means when you pray that?‖

That‘s right. When we pray the outline prayer which Christ taught His disciples, ―Your kingdom come. Your will be done,‖ means we will be ruled by our Creator. The entire world will be under His righteous, spiritually led one-world government. And while we‘re on this subject, we might as well recite the rest of the verse starting from the top, ―Hallowed be Your name, Your kingdom come, Your will be done on earth...‖ Did you catch that? Or do we recite this prayer so much, we don‘t recognize the words and grasp the meaning. Jesus Christ, the Almighty God, said, ―Your kingdom come. Your will be done On earth...‖ Now, why on this earth? The reason is this is where He is coming. The Omnipotent One who

reigns supreme is coming to establish the kingdom of God on this earth. As His kingdom is now in heaven, it will be on the earth. This is why we are commanded to pray this way, this outline prayer that Christ established with His original disciples, He also establishes with the entire world as they become His disciples. These verses foreshadow those events to come. Christ taught His disciples to pray using these words as a basic outline for the Creator‘s entire purpose and plan for all mankind. Let us read it from beginning to end. Verse 9 ―In this manner, therefore, pray: Our Father in heaven, Hallowed be Your name.‖ Verse 10 ―Your kingdom come. Your will be done On earth as it is in heaven.‖ Verse 11 ―Give us this day our daily bread.‖ Verse 12 ―And forgive us our debts, As we forgive our debtors.‖ Verse 13 ―And do not lead us into temptation, But deliver us from the evil one. For Yours is the kingdom and the power and the glory forever. Amen.‖ Matthew 6:9-13; New King James Version. The Almighty God could not have been any clearer. It is the deceitful, wicked foolishness of mankind that muddies ww295 up the waters. Toxic Kool-Aid and deceiving doctrines are openly introduced for the new darkened-minded disciples following the demented ways of Jim Jones. Some people God has called have foolishly forsaken the Lord as the true spring of living water. Verse 13 ―My people have committed two sins: They have forsaken me, the spring of living water, and have dug their own cisterns, broken cisterns that cannot

hold water.‖ Jeremiah 2:13; New International Version. The magnificent blessings and wonderful plans that the Creator has for His entire creation start with what we learn now. These spiritual lessons will be built upon and greatly enhanced within His coming kingdom. Everyone collectively, but especially individually, has an express, written plan which the Creator has written. Our very DNA details why we were born, the purpose and plan for our lives. As I have stated before, every one of us is unique and no one can do what the Almighty created you to do. That is why He created you in the first place. Every one has a unique purpose and when that unique purpose is missing, like ingredients missing in a cake, then it‘s not right. It‘s not as it should be because it‘s missing you, your personal touch which is desperately needed. When this missing link effect takes place it‘s a major disappointment. The ingredients only have to be off a little bit, just a slight pinch here and there, to create a dramatic change, not for the better but for the worse. Scientists claim the DNA of a monkey is only slightly different from that of humans. That slightness in reality is a grand-canyon world apart from man to monkey. I don‘t want anyone to misunderstand; a monkey does not a man make. I am not a deceived Darwin theorist.

Remember the classic film , starring Spencer Tracy as the lawyer Henry Drummond. This was a famous court case which theorized instead of the master Creator, evolution—or to use a better word, ―EVILution‖—is creator. What an abomination! That is simply asinine foolishness at its best. God is Creator. He knows what He‘s creating. He is a God of variety and He created a variety of species, species that vary from one another. Some of the variations are slight, some are very dramatic. It‘s like when you go to the grocery store and you see a variety of bread, dozens, if not hundreds, of different types of bread from the basic wheat bread to pumpernickel bread, sourdough bread to rye bread.

Some are brown, some are yellow, and some are white. All are made according to the chief bread maker, the master baker who placed the various ingredients in one bread to make it taste a certain way, and another bread to taste altogether different. The point is: it was created that way. It wasn‘t some medieval metamorphosis which mysteriously took place mutating French bread into American Wonder Bread—and we can all be most grateful and thankful for that. Billions of loaves of bread all over the face of the earth did not

grow up by themselves without a creator. Let us now theorize this foolishness together. Here are two very silly but serious scenarios to consider. The first theory starts this way: Suddenly, one spring Sunday morning (the first day of the week) sprouts from wheat kernels shot up from the ground, formed from the dust of the earth; however, there were only male wheat grains in existence. By the sixth day, all the male grains understood it was not good for male grains to be alone. So the male grains formed a female grain from the dust of the ground. And there was evening and there was morning, the sixth day. Now, the male and female kernels started to rub and grind themselves together (this is called bread sex). This action took place until flour was made—Eureka! In the rainy season, they decided to add a little yeast to the flour mixture, so when the heat rays from the sun hit, the dough would rise and become bread. And of course, you guessed it, on the seventh day, they rested from all their labor. All farms and the millions of hills and fields that grew wheat were commanded to practice this. This was to ensure the soil could replenish itself and the nutrients of vitamins and minerww296 als would remain rich in the land. This

nothing! And there was a big bang! These nothings created atoms — protons, and neutrons. The fast spinning motion of these created matter, forming an entire universe of stars and planets. On one planet called Earth, a lot of stuff started mingling together and suddenly, one winter morning, wheat sprung up! You see, this was winter wheat. Millions of years went by. Wheat changed into flour—and then, another million years went by and yeast was added. An atmosphere was formed to protect the wheat crops from the harsh radiation of the sun. And under that conveniently made, brand spanking new atmospheric shield, white smoky stuff called clouds suddenly appeared. Now, the wheat, wise as they are, asked the clouds for water so they could continue to grow and not die. Falling water made the flour and the yeast into dough. Yes! There were more and more ingredients added, after millions and millions of years—but I‘m trying to speed up the story. After the rain, the sun came out, and baked the bread forming beautiful bread loaves all around the world. Voilá! Now, this is the theory which somehow seems more logical and plausible to socalled progressive minds. The basic mumbo-jumbo jargon line used by scientists to explain life on earth is: ―Intelligent life evolved through a fortunate mix and

This sinister scenario is more believable in their demented minds than the first one, and certainly more than the actual God-given truth written within the Creator‘s Word. And let us not forget, you need to go much further with this stupid scenario to actually get the bread loaves on the store shelves—all cut and sliced nicely, packaged and ready to go complete with labels. Of course, that comes a million years later as the bread grew legs, came out of the water, suddenly stood on two feet, and walked themselves into the store.

Little baguettes rose up into big, textured bread loaves all leading successful lives and the story finishes with a happy ending. You see, some grow up to be butchers, some grow up to be bakers, and others candlestick makers. I tell you the truth, the Cabbage Patch

Even if you take too long to produce that unique fruit, you may simply be uprooted from the soil, up from where your Creator planted you. Christ Himself explains, Verse 6 ―...‗A man had a fig tree, planted in his vineyard, and he went to look for fruit on it, but did not find any.‘‖ Verse 7 ―So he said to the man who took care of the vineyard, ‗For three years now I‘ve been coming to look for fruit on this fig tree and haven‘t found any. Cut it down! Why should it use up the soil?‘‖ Verse 8 ―‗Sir,‘ the man replied, ‗leave it alone for one more year, and I‘ll dig around it and fertilize it.‘‖ Verse 9 ―‗If it bears fruit next year, fine! If not, then cut it down.‘‖ Luke 13:6-9; New International Version. Again, it is imperative that we fulfill the will of our ww299 Maker, the role which He created us for.

When you know what you should do, your personal, private calling given to you by your Creator, it‘s simply wonderful.

This wonderful, divine illumination brings us full circle from where we began this segment when I stated, ―It‘s a beautiful day.‖ When you are blessed to get up in the morning you should say, ―It‘s a beautiful day everyday!‖ Because that day you have another chance, another opportunity to glorify and ww300 honor God.

Today is the 2nd of March, 2006, 4:42 on a Thursday. Today I get another blessed chance. Soon, Lord willing, I will release this book . Personally, I‘m very happy about that. Actually, I‘m ecstatic. I don‘t believe I‘ve ever worked so hard on anything in all my 42 years of life. Praise be to the Lord for constantly rebuking me, making me work harder on it, guiding, directing, and lovingly blessing me every step of the way. Again, it‘s a beautiful day. The Lord‘s blessings are overflowing. My personal prayers were also answered today. A magnificent, miraculous answer was given. It‘s tangible.

. And yes, if the answer was no, that too will be a perfect answer from the Lord. But I feel like such a fool—very stupid, and faithless. I must admit, since I could not see how the Almighty would bless me, my belief was not as strong as it should have been. I imagine this is how the true apostle Peter felt. Remember the story? Christ asked Peter to put his boat out in deep water and let down the net for a catch. Peter complained about working hard all night, not catching anything, but he reluctantly relented and said, ―But because You say so, I will let down the nets.‖ And, of course, after Peter followed the instructions, they caught so many large fish the nets began to break. Peter signaled for other partners and another boat to come and help. And now, with both boats filled, they began to sink. Verse 8 ―When Simon Peter saw this, he fell at Jesus‘ knees and said, ‗Go away from me, Lord; I am a sinful man!‘‖ Luke 5:8; New International Version. I can imagine how Peter felt. He felt unworthy; he felt like he let Jesus down. He simply felt faithless. I have felt that way, it seems a million times over. Now, I‘ve always considered myself as having a faithful understanding that the Almighty would bless me according to my prayers. Of course, it must be according to His will; howwwRRR301b ever, I know I believe, in my prayer, my petition and request that I was beseeching God for was within the boundaries of His will; nevertheless, I did not have full, confident faith that I deserved those prayers to be answered.

Verse 21 ―Dear friends, if our hearts do not condemn us, we have confidence before God‖ Verse 22 ―and receive from him anything we ask, because we obey his commands and do what pleases him.‖ 1 John 3:21-22; New International Version.

Knowing that you‘re striving to do what is right and pleasing in His sight, gives you peace of mind. I‘m not referring to some self-righteous acts.

These are deceptive acts of worship. Believing you are holy because you are merely keeping the commandments of God is a deceptive spiritual snake pit. One day, you will simply wake up full of bitter venom from the Evil One, lacking a sense of true spiritual conversion, not able to cope with the coming tribulations of life. The problem is that you were trying to obey God and fulfill His will on your own power and strength. The fact is, you never really knew God. You did not rely on His supreme power and strength to convert your heart and soul to His divine image and likeness. You weren‘t really developing a critical, private relationship with your Creator.

I tell you the truth, perhaps multiple millions will find themselves being rudely awakened to this fact, learning too late that their own brand of worshipping the Creator is only worshipping themselves. The relationship they felt was being built is only a figment of their imagination. This warning from the Almighty pops up in many different forms throughout His Word. Verse 26 ―Then you will say, ‗We ate and drank with you, and you taught in our streets.‘‖ Verse 27 ―But He will reply, ‗I don‘t know you or where you come from. Away from me, all you evildoers!‘‖ Luke 13:26-27; New International Version. You can‘t just keep the commandments, it must be a part of you. You must live them. Verse 5 ―Keep my decrees and laws, for the man who obeys them will live by them. I am the Lord.‖ Leviticus 18:5; New Internaww304 tional Version. To maintain the Eternal‘s will is the key to success. Those who are ultimately written within the book of life will be the doers of the way of God, not the hearers. Verse 18 ―Dear children, let us not love with words or tongue but with actions and in truth.‖ Verse 19 ―This then is how we know that we belong to the truth, and how we set our hearts at rest in his presence‖ Verse 20 ―whenever our hearts condemn us. For God is greater than our hearts, and He knows everything.‖ 1 John 3:18-20; New International Version.

Verse 9 ―For he and all his companions were astonished at the catch of fish they had taken,‖ Luke 5:9; New International Version. Why is this? I hate when my faith is weak—carnally, I hate it even more when others don‘t have faith in me. I can‘t imagine how the Creator feels when His very creation doesn‘t have faith in Him, nor do they remain faithful to His ways. Millions, perhaps billions, don‘t even believe He exists!

traught. Demetrius came up to him asking, ―Can you help me? I‘m looking for a man.‖ The old disciple sitting on the bench who appeared disturbed and troubled said, ―A man? What‘s his name?‖ The new disciple replied, ―Jesus. I must warn Him.‖ And the old disciple said, ―You are too late. Even now He (meaning Christ) is before Pilate; they found Him, He was betrayed by one He loved and trusted—by His disciple, who sat at His left hand.‖ The new disciple then asked, ―Why?‖ The old disciple replied, ―Because men are weak. Because they are cursed with envy and cowardice. Because they can dream of truth, but cannot lie with it. How they doubt; they doubt, the fools. Why must men betray themselves with doubt? Tell them—tell the others. Find them—find them and tell them not to doubt, even now, not to doubt. Tell them to keep their faith. They must keep faith.‖ The old disciple now standing, starts to walk away. The new disciple asked, ―Wait, tell who? Who are you?‖ The old disciple said, All mankind is faithless and weak; however, my focus is on Chuck Thompson right now, since my faith is also weak. I feel stupid—stupid with a silly, surprised grin on my face. The miraculous blessing of God actually took place. God gave me exactly what I asked for. Right on time, perfectly punctual is He. Oh, how undeserving I am in what He has given me. I know who I am, as He has blessed me to know and understand. What I deserve is death, many times over.

But the Eternal‘s helping hand is always there. It‘s there every single morning, if we faithfully do what is right and good and pleasing in His sight. He will always be faithful; remain faithful, and the Almighty will never let you down. So I say it‘s a beautiful morning because I can see it. I can see it with my eyes when I should have been able to see it with my mind, my heart, the Lord‘s understanding, and the faith which He has blessed me to have. Yet, I don‘t take full advantage of that knowledge. I can‘t claim to be faithful—as I should be—because belief is mostly in the back of my mind, ww307 when it should be in the forefront of my eyes. Remember the scripture: a man was speaking with Christ concerning his faith and whether he believed Jesus could heal his daughter or not. Verse 24 ―Immediately the father of the child cried out and said with tears, ‗Lord, I believe; help my unbelief!‘‖ Mark 9:24; New King James Version.

It shouldn‘t be viewed as some astonishing occurrence that the prayer was somehow answered in the first place. Unfaithfulness is a sad, pitiful sin. It must be extremely disappointing to the Alww308 mighty when we show very little, or no faith at all.

We simply will not take the Eternal‘s Word for it to save our own unfaithful lives. We always have doubts in the back of our minds. Listen carefully, you who are reading the words of this book. Your world is about to change—and I mean change forever. The future of mankind is bright, brighter and more wonderful than anyone could ever imagine.

Remember the story in Zechariah? God was rebuking Israel. It is a reminder of the past and a warning for the future. The Eternal is explaining why the past happened as tragically as it did and in the same scriptures, He warns us why our future will be worse.

This end time problem of modern warfare will soon manifest itself. Modern WMM (weapons of mass murder) are the unfortunate future of all mankind, leaving no skeptics, no doubters in the land—that‘s if there is anyone left alive at all. Chapter 8 of Zechariah brings us back to my point regarding having faith, that the Almighty is extremely disappointed when we do not have that faith. Verse 2 ―This is what the Lord Almighty says: ‗I am very jealous for Zion; I am burning with jealousy for her.‘‖ Verse 3 ―This is what the Lord says: ‗I will return to Zion and dwell in Jerusalem.

You must know, no nation—especially within the global community—considers Jerusalem the city of truth; that‘s certainly far from the current thinking today. Most of the international community at this time in history hate Jerusalem. And not Jerusalem as a city, but the people who live in her. This scripture refers to the near future. Again, Verse 3 ―...the mountain of the Lord Almighty will be called the Holy Mountain.‖ Verse 4 ―This is what the Lord Almighty says: ‗Once again men and women of ripe old age will sit in the streets of Jerusalem, each with cane in hand because of his age.‖ Verse

forced to be a part of this hall of shame whether they wanted to or not. The Almighty has warned His people, and the entire unbelieving world, about these up-coming, terrifying events. There will no longer be any skeptics. The proof of WMM will be the deadly, poisonous radiation coursing through their bodies, their very cells killed and rapidly deteriorating by the millions. Tragically, the proof will come too late; however, finalizing the point, after all of this devastation and destruction has taken place, the Almighty says in Verse 5 ―‗The city streets will be filled with boys and girls playing there.‖ Verse 6 ―This is what the Lord Almighty says: ‗It may seem marvelous to the remnant of this people at that time, but will it seem marvelous to me?‘ declares the Lord Almighty.‘‖ Zechariah 8:5-6; New International Version.

The Almighty Creator God keeps His word. If we do what is right and good and pleasing in His sight, that faithful word alone will reward us with His wonderful promises. The Eternal has promised to give those who remain faithful an inheritance. His eternal promises are for those faithful people who endure to the end. One major fallacy believed in religious circles is the deceitful teaching that Christian converts are already saved. The next time you hear anyone claim he or she is saved, quote Christ‘s own words, Verse 13 ―...he who endures to the end shall be saved.‖ Mark 13:13; New King James Version.

and yes, I too personally—has failed, falling into that wicked category of being unjust. This naturally brings much shame ww314 and guilt in our minds. But It is the Lord‘s promise. Verse 7 ―And will not God bring about justice for his chosen ones, who cry out to him day and night? Will he keep putting them off?‖ Verse 8 ―I tell you, he will see that they get justice, and quickly. However, when the Son of Man comes, will he find faith on the earth?‖ Luke 18:7-8; New International Version. Now, there is a problem: an undeserving, faithless people remain faithless and undeserving. Today, to my shame, I am counted as one of the high priests among unfaithful sinners.

To that end, I still fail. Mercifully, my Creator does not. He remains true and faithful to me; however, I had better repent quickly, learn righteousness, be faithful and true—and always respect the majesty of the Almighty. This is a condemning complaint the Creator has with mankind. Verse 10 ―Though grace is shown to the wicked, they do not learn righteousness; even in a land of uprightness they go on doing evil and regard not the majesty of the Lord.‖ Isaiah 26:10; New International Version. This is a major problem that even besets those who strive for righteousww316 ness, usually brought on by lacking faith.

My friend from the Lord, Tim Spurgeon, not long ago was confronted with such a problem. Tim owns and operates a total maintenance service company called HWT Maintenance and Custodial Services. You can look up his company at . I dare say, you will not find a more reputable company to take special care of your facilities. Tim‘s company will clean and maintain your property, placing all things decently and in order. Your domain will possess a sense of quietness and peace, having a fresh, unleavened look physically and spiritually as any inwardly professing Jewish person‘s house would—especially during the Days of Unleavened Bread, completely clean, not a bread crumb to be found. This is the unleavened condition of those who are Jews inwardly, striving continually to maintain a Godly spiritual condition. But please understand, if you are not striving continuously for your spiritual life to be clean and in order, unleavened (clean from sin), it won‘t make any difference how perfectly clean your physical house is. Here‘s a warning from your Creator: Verse 27 ―Woe to you, teachers of the law and Pharisees, you hypocrites! You are like whitewashed tombs, which look beautiful on the outside but on the inside are full of dead men‘s bones and everything unclean.‖ Verse 28 ―In the same way, on the outside you appear to people as righteous but on the inside you are full of hypocrisy and wickedness.‖ Matthew 23:27-28; New International Version.

Listen up America and the rest of the world. Stop fighting and arguing over meaningless matters. What matters is keeping the way of your Creator exactly the way your Creator commands. Especially to those of you in the media who want to be actors in movies, and you actors in movies who want to be in the media, and yes, you politicians who desire and aspire to be both: all groups need to repent and reflect. You should seriously reconsider the foolhardy ropes you are pulling on (meaningless issues), because they have absolutely no spiritual connection to your Creator. Yes, it would be nice for our country to literally be a nation under God and to faithfully honor the Almighty, displaying His Word, His commandments throughout our government facilities. This spiritual principle should not just be limited to places of worship. Those of you who think differently, need to rethink your short-sighted position. Consider this spiritual food for thought: The soon-coming kingdom of God, the government of the Eternal, will replace America and all governments around the world. The kingdom of God will reflect and display God‘s way of life throughout His kingdom. I am telling you here and now, the Creator‘s Word will be on everything, not just in some places of worship and engraved a little here and there on a few walls. The Eternal‘s name will be on just about everything we use including the utensils we eat from. In that day this principle will be practiced throughout

Now here is your second sermon regarding this spiritual food for thought. Since displaying God‘s Word (the Eternal‘s way of life) will be a reality throughout His government, how much more should those claiming to be a nation under God, who plaster all over their currency: ―In God We Trust,‖ should in reality, trust physically and spiritually to keep His ways and display His Word throughout the entire country?

The Faithful Trial
Audio MP3 #41 Now, back to my friend from the Lord whom God has blessed to be an inward Jew. Not long ago, Tim was confronted with a fiery trial seeming to come from nowhere, to test his faithful obedience to the ways of God. On his way to inspect one of his accounts, inspired to take the freeway, just ahead of him past the freeway on-ramp, was an accident. Although tow trucks were on the scene, damaged cars remained in the lanes of fast, oncoming cars. Approaching the accident, he quickly slammed on the brakes trying to swerve out of harm‘s way. Unfortunately, the lady involved in the accident was outside her vehicle standing in a freeway lane where the oncoming express traffic drives. She was sandwiched between her own car and one of the tow trucks which had just arrived on the scene. Later, the tow truck driver explained to me, he had just instructed her to move from the back of her vehicle around to the front to get her out of danger from the oncoming traffic. Instead of moving completely off the freeway lanes, she stopped between her vehicle and his tow truck. Sadly, this is the time my friend, Tim Spurgeon, was desperately trying to avoid hitting her car which was stopped dead on the freeway. Tragically, it was too late. The unthinkable took place. There was a collision careening her car straight into her as she stood between her own car and the tow

truck. This, as you can imagine, was a horrific scene. My friend frantically jumped from his car and rushed over to help the lady—only to confirm his worst fears. Not only was she severely hit by her own car, but her injuries were unimaginable. She was literally cut in half. Her legs hung from her body attached only by her skin and clothing. The tow truck driver explained, ―They literally had to pick up her legs then her body separately.‖ Unfortunately, it gets worse. Her entire torso was smashed horizontally into the tow truck grid. She was stuck, stuffed inside the tow truck‘s radiator. The tow truck driver said to me, ―At that time she was still alive. Her whole body was smashed. Her face and head were blown up like a big water balloon. Yet I could still see in her eyes that she was alive. Her eyes were moving but just barely, more like a fixed stare, a stare of utter and complete shock, a stare of disbelief. She remained silent, not a single sound. Her eyes said it all.‖ Tim told me when he first rushed to help her that after viewing her mutilated condition, he simply collapsed to his knees, dropping down on the freeway pavement. He held his hands up in the air, crying out prayers to God to intervene and save the woman. I personally had several opportunities to talk to the police officers who responded to the scene. They told me how totally distraught my friend was over what had just taken place. The policeman commented how terribly torn up he was. He was simply beside himself, overwhelmed with grief. The officer who was moved by Tim‘s extremely sad and remorseful

actions told me, looking me straight in the eye, ―You take care of him. He‘s very, very, very special. He is a good guy, a special guy. You take good care of him. He‘s going to be all right.‖ I was alerted to this accident by Tim‘s wife. I had just recently arrived in the country from Europe and only by the great miracle-working hand of God was I home in the first place when Tim‘s wife called. I‘d been desperately trying to leave the house but I simply could not get my act together. Something just would not let me leave. I became frustrated, sat down on the couch and at that time the phone rang. It was Rachel, Tim‘s wife. God‘s magnificent grace was in action. She said to me, very calmly, very collectedly, ―Chuck, Tim has been in an accident and he needs you to come down now.‖ That‘s right, the accident happened to be five minutes from where I live. Upon arriving at the scene, I ran up to where Tim was. He was standing across from me on the freeway with his back to me. That instant, he turned around, looked straight at me, and burst into tears; his cry was very loud and bitter. It literally took me by surprise. Tim has been my friend for over 20 years and in all those 20 years, I had never heard an outburst cry like that from him, ever. Later when we talked, Tim said he was overwhelmed when he saw me, it looked like a dream, like a vision. He couldn‘t believe I was there. He said it looked like I wasn‘t standing on the ground, it seemed like I was floating by slowly. As the accident scene was being cleared, the police took

one final opportunity to console Tim. They didn‘t arrest him. They didn‘t harass him. They didn‘t ask him any more questions. They knew from the scene and from previous accidents that this was just that, a horrible, terrible accident. But, my friend didn‘t take it that way; he took it very hard. He was extremely traumatized and terribly disturbed. When he got to his house, he hurried to his room to get on his knees to pray, asking, and beseeching God for guidance, direction, and forgiveness; however, the Evil One was there too. The accuser of the brethren was in his mind tormenting him with guilt from past sins. Tim was being plagued with harassing thoughts and demented scenarios, blaming him for this accident. A barrage of torturing thoughts flooded Tim with overwhelming feelings of guilt and fault because of his past sins. Guilt-laden emotions besieged him along with ungodly spirits telling him this was why God allowed this accident to occur. As I pulled up outside his house, he came out confessing this absolutely asinine nonsense about how God was punishing him because of some supposed, delusional sins, falsely—deceitfully—fed to him by the Evil One. Moved by the Holy One of heaven, I firmly and strongly rebuked him for entertaining such foolish nonsense. I looked him straight in the eye and reminded him, he has the spirit of God burning ww318 within him.

The things Tim was saying literally didn‘t make any sense. It was clearly not of God. It was a pack of deceitful lies,

a world of confusion from the Evil One, which he is the author of. I remember the man of God, Dr. Hoeh, saying, ―It is possible for evil spirits to possess even the minds of believers, ww319 those who have the spirit of God.

They are in control of what you do and what you say, how you act and how you react. We must all guard our mind and never let it become so weak where evil spirits can simply walk in and take over our bodies especially when our hearts and minds are made vulnerable by a traumatic event and are shocked and overwhelmed with grief. Thankfully, prayerfully, the Almighty has turned this traumatic event into a magnificent blessing. Stirring up the spirit of God within Tim was the Godly fruit produced—which may have been lying a little dormant too long. The Almighty God gave him a wake-up call to get his spiritual house in order. Since then, to this very day, he is on fire, fervently studying God‘s Word with regular, righteous fasting, and striving to ww320 do what is right and good and pleasing in God‘s sight.

Audio MP3 #42 In the first volume titled you will read about Manasseh, the oldest son of Joseph, and the brothers of Joseph. You must understand, doing what is right and good and pleasing in God‘s sight is what the was created for in the first place. Because we have all failed to live up to the ways commanded by the Creator, horrendous suffering is in our near future. In these last pages, I‘m going to give a message to the entire house of Israel scattered over all the earth. Here is a comforting note with words that are true and the interpretation thereof is sure. To the house of Israel of which the people of Judah are a part: Verse 9 ―This is what the Lord Almighty says: ‗You who now hear these words spoken by the prophets who were there when the foundation was laid for the house of the Lord Almighty, let your hands be strong so that the temple may be built.‘‖ Zechariah 8:9; New International Version. I must pause here. These special scriptures are very serious words, laden with very serious consequences. An explanation about the building of the temple will be explained in more detail in

titled . Verse 10 ―‗Before that time there were no wages for man or beast. No one could go about his business safely because of his enemy, for I had turned every man against his neighbor.‘‖ Verse 11 ―‗But now I will not deal with the remnant of this people as I did in the past,‖ declares the Lord Almighty.‖ Verse 12 ―‗The seed will grow well, the vine will yield its fruit, the ground will produce its crops, and the heavens will drop their dew. I will give all these things as an inheritance to the remnant of this people.‘‖ Zechariah 8:10-12; New International Version. Explanation: Remnant is a term for a future people, those in the near future who are blessed to remain alive. It is a statistically grim percentage of people left as survivors—perhaps as few as 10% of the population. Just to let you know, this is not some war in times past; these are events to take place in the very near future. Verse 13 ―‗As you have been an object of cursing among the nations, O Judah and Israel, so will I save you, and you will be a blessing. Do not be afraid, but let your hands be strong.‘‖ Verse 14 ―This is what the Lord Almighty says: ‗Just as I had determined to bring disaster upon you and showed no pity when your fathers angered me,‘ says the Lord Almighty,‘‖ Verse 15 ―‗so now I have determined to do good again to Jerusalem and Judah. Do not be afraid.‘‖ Verse 16 ―These are the things you are to do: Speak the truth to each other, and render true and sound judgment in your courts;‘‖ Verse 17 ―‗do not plot evil

against your neighbor, and do not love to swear falsely. I hate all this,‘ declares the Lord.‖ Zechariah 8:13-17; New International Version. This is what the entire house of Israel must do. Those who claim to be Jews must truly be Jews inwardly. Verse 28 ―For he is not a Jew who is one outwardly, nor is circumcision that which is outward in the flesh;‖ Verse 29 ―but he is a Jew who is one inwardly; and circumcision is that of the heart, in the Spirit, not in the letter; whose praise is not from men but from God.‖ Romans 2:28-29; New King James Version. The next verses prophesy events (history in advance) giving a not too subtle warning to those nations that may now be out of step with the house of Israel. Those who hate Israel in every way had better think again. Seriously repent of your hateful ways and receive a new way of thinking. Put an end to your refusal to not recognize the rights for the existence of this future nation, Israel. This new and improved nation, comprising all the sons of Jacob, will together again be the . The Eternal, the Creator of all mankind, says the future world will revolve around them.

take firm hold of one Jew by the hem of his robe and say, ―Let us go with you, because we have heard that God is with you.‖ Zechariah 8:20-23; New International Version. What a wonderful time this will be when these worldchanging events happen—and you‘d best believe they will surely take place. These prophecies are as sure as the moon reflects light from the sun. The Creator Himself will rule the world. Righteous leadership offices, both spiritual and physical, will be given to a chosen people who faithfully obey God. The true and faithful gospel message, which Jesus Christ Himself preached, is the all important key to what the future holds. Verse 15 ―The time is fulfilled, and the kingdom of God is at hand. Repent, and believe in the gospel.‖ Mark 1:15; New King James Version. This is when the theme song which the world sings finally rings true, the prophetic song containing the entire gospel message of the coming kingdom of God—appropriately titled . This scripturally based song contains these prophetic words, ―And He shall reign for ever and ever.‖ Now listen carefully, O Jewish people. Many must become Jews inwardly. A great many of you have been avoiding the truth. True recognition and respect along with holy reverence was not given to the Messiah at His first coming. Many of you around the world have yet to come on board. Warning: Do not miss the second spiritual boat His tremendous, triumphant (trumpets) return will bring.

Before beginning this exercise, it is critical that you have your Bible ready and available. Please turn to Psalms 86; we will go from verse to verse. This understanding will help set the tone of these prayers. The Desperate Prayers are the prayers of David to God, asking God and beseeching Him. Here is a quick explanation of how David‘s prayers are formulated and fit together like a puzzle. We begin in Psalms 86 with David asking God to hear him. As he prays, he might ask Him to hear him, answer him, to teach him, show him and deliver him. Whenever he‘s asking God something, that‘s what we skip to and that is part of the puzzle. When the verse does not ask God a question or for deliverance, guidance, or direction, we skip it and go to the next verse. No matter whether it is a scripture right after or a scripture seven verses down, or 20 verses down, it still fits like a puzzle as if it is one single prayer, prayed continuously from beginning to end. Starting in Verse 1 ―Hear, O Lord, and answer me, for I am poor and needy.‖ Verse 2 ―Guard my life, for I am devoted to you. You are my God; save your servant who trusts in you.‖ Verse 3 ―Have mercy on me, O Lord, for I call to you all day long.‖ Verse 4 ―Bring joy to your servant, for to you, O Lord, I lift up my soul.‖ Psalms 86:1-4; New International Version. Stop there. All of those are verses in which David is asking God for something. But we come to Verse 5 ―You are forgiving and good, O Lord, abounding in love to all who call to you.‖ Psalm 86:5; New International Version. Here he does not ask God for anything; he‘s just making a true statement about

Introduction of Psalms

God, about God‘s goodness. So, that‘s not part of our puzzle. From verse 4, we skip verse 5, and go straight to Verse 6 ―Hear my prayer, O Lord; listen to my cry for mercy.‖ Psalm 86:6; New International Version. David is asking God for something. He‘s asking Him to hear his prayer and listen to his cry. Verse 7 does not. Verse 7 ―In the day of my trouble I will call to you, for you will answer me.‖ Psalm 86:7; New International Version. Now, he‘s talking to God but he is not asking God, for anything so we skip that verse as well. Now we have verses 1,2,3,4,6, and skip Verse 7. Verse 8 ―Among the gods there is none like you, O Lord; no deeds can compare with yours.‖ Psalm 86:8; New International Version. He‘s not asking him for anything there either. Verse 9 ―All the nations you have made will come and worship before you, O Lord; they will bring glory to your name.‖ Psalm 86:9; New International Version. He is also stating a truism, a prophecy of things to take place. This is not part of David‘s prayer asking God for something, deliverance, guidance, direction, or understanding. Verse 10 ―For you are great and do marvelous deeds; you alone are God‖ Psalm 86:10; New International Version. These are praises to God but they are not included as the puzzle is linked together in regard to David asking God, beseeching Him for answers, guidance, and direction. Verse 11 changes, ―Teach me your way, O Lord, and I will walk in your truth; give me an undivided heart, that I may fear your name.‖ Psalm 86:11; New International Version. So, let‘s go ahead and test it out, starting again in verse

Introduction of Psalms

1 of Psalms 86. Verse 1 ―Hear, O Lord, and answer me, for I am poor and needy.‖ Verse 2 ―Guard my life, for I am devoted to you. You are my God; save your servant who trusts in you.‖ Verse 3 ―Have mercy on me, O Lord, for I call to you all day long.‖ Verse 4 ―Bring joy to your servant, for to you, O Lord, I lift up my soul.‖ Verse 6 ― Hear my prayer, O Lord; listen to my cry for mercy.‖ Verse 11 ―Teach me your way, O Lord, and I will walk in your truth; give me an undivided heart, that I may fear your name.‖ So, you see how it goes in sequence although it skips verses then picks back up as he asks God for something. It‘s a continuous prayer to God and that is what the reading of Psalms, the Desperate Prayers to God is: 42 minutes of beseeching God and asking for His guidance and direction. Of course, the 42 minutes also signifies the three and a half year tribulation, which is 42 months exactly, or twelve hundred and sixty days. Let us continue. Verse 12 ―I will praise you, O Lord my God, with all my heart; I will glorify your name forever.‖ Psalm 86:12; New International Version. He‘s telling God what he will do, giving God glory; however, he is not requesting anything of God. Verse 13 ―For great is your love towards me; you have delivered me from the depths of the grave.‖ Verse 14 ―The arrogant are attacking me, O God; a band of ruthless men seeks my life—men without regard for you.‖ Psalms 86:13-14; New International Version. Verse 14, he‘s not asking anything of God; he‘s just telling Him his problem. Verse 15 ―But you, O Lord, are a compassionate and gracious

Introduction of Psalms

God, slow to anger, abounding in love and faithfulness.‖ Psalm 86:15; New International Version. It is not beseeching God, it claims God‘s promises and who God is. Verse 16 ―Turn to me and have mercy on me; grant your strength to your servant and save the son of your maidservant.‖ Psalm 86:16; New International Version. He is asking God for strength to save him and for mercy on him. Verse 17 ―Give me a sign of your goodness, that my enemies may see it and be put to shame, for you, O Lord, have helped me and comforted me.‖ Psalm 86:17; New International Version. Therefore, verse 16 and 17 are included. Before that was verse 11, and before that was verse 6 and before that was verse 4, 3, 2 and 1. Now, we‘ll read them all together and you‘ll hear a direct prayer of David beseeching God which we should also use and apply directly to our lives. This is how it sounds straight through without announcing the verses in between. Starting in Verse 1: Hear, O Lord, and answer me, for I am poor and needy. Guard my life, for I am devoted to you. You are my God; save your servant who trusts in you. Have mercy on me, O Lord, for I call to you all day long. Bring joy to your servant, for to you, O Lord, I lift up my soul. Hear my prayer, O Lord; listen to my cry for mercy. Teach me your way, O Lord, and I will walk in your truth; give me an undivided heart, that I may fear your name.

forted me. When you read it straight through, it‘s a continuous prayer, with no breaks, and nothing else is involved.

This is extremely effective. You can actually go through the Psalms, pick another subject, like praising God, and pick out the verses where David is praising God, not asking Him for anything, not beseeching God, simply giving Him praise and thanks and you will find the same pattern of faith. The flow of one dot connects to the next, whether it‘s the first scripture, or the second scripture or the next chapter. They will link themselves up together whether the subject is praising God or the promises God is giving us through the Psalms, how He will bless us as we obey Him, walk in His ways and do what is right and good and pleasing in His sight. Those also will link up together, and come together as a puzzle to form the magnificent picture of God‘s promises and blessings. And, of course, the human nature of mankind asking God, beseeching God for guidance, direction and deliverance is the most popular. That is what we‘re focusing on now and may God answer every prayer and deliver every one of His servants. In Jesus‘ name. So be it. Amen.

Psalms 109 v.1 O God, whom I praise, do not remain silent, v.6 Appoint an evil man to oppose him; let an accuser stand at his right hand. v.7 When he is tried, let him be found guilty, may his prayers condemn him. v.8 May his days be few; may another take his place of leadership. v.9 May his children be fatherless and his wife a widow. v.10 may his children be wandering beggars; may they be driven from their ruined homes. v.11 may a creditor seize all he has; may strangers plunder the fruit of his labor. v.12 May no one extend kindness to him or take pity on his fatherless children. v.13 May his descendants be cut off, their names blotted out from the next generation. v.14 May the iniquity of the fathers be remembered before the Lord; may the sin of his mother never be blotted out. v.15 May their sins always remain before the Lord, that they may cut off the memory of them from the earth. v.17 He loved to pronounce a curse – may it come on him; he found no pleasure in blessing – may it be far from him. v.19 May it be a cloak wrapped about him, like a belt tied forever around him. v.20 May this be the Lord‘s payment to my accusers, those who speak evil of me.
