MILLENNIAL SEEING IS BELIEVING! DFO 1450 31/10/82
1. THERE ARE GOING TO
BE SOME ANIMALS IN THE MILLENNIUM, & SOME APPARENTLY IN SPACE CITY!
You wonder how that can be? Well, I don't know! All I know is it
was!--Ha! I didn't know how it could be 2125 AD either, but he said,
"Well, it is!" (No.629) (Family: If William Branham saw his rocking
chair, surely people would see their pet animals that they grew up with
or loved very much!) I think some of them wouldn't be happy if they
didn't, because they had some pet that was really dear to them.
2. I WAS PICKING OUT
SCRIPTURES FOR THE MILLENNIUM, & my oh my, it's amazing all the
animals the Bible mentions that are going to be there! Of course, most
of that was about the Millennium, but the New Earth, is going to be
very much like the old Earth, at least from what I could
see.--Beautiful rolling hills & green grass & trees &
flowers! It was beautiful!
3. HOW ELSE COULD THE
LORD MAKE A NEW EARTH BUT SOMETHING SIMILAR OR EVEN MORE BEAUTIFUL THAN
THE ONE WE HAVE NOW! I don't know how anything could be much more
beautiful than it is now, but evidently He's going to re-create the
Earth the way it's supposed to be! All the people that didn't get saved
& make it the way we did are going to be farming & living out
4. SO WHY SHOULDN'T
THERE BE ANIMALS? There's going to be a New Earth with all that grass
& trees & everything, why isn't there going to be a whole new
creation?--Animals, birds & everything, but without the cursed
insects & Devil's pests & thorns & thistles, etc.--The
whole beautiful Creation the way God intended for it originally to be,
like the Garden of Eden! How else could the New Earth be but that? The
Lord certainly must have made the most beautiful place He could
possibly imagine for Adam & Eve in the Garden, so I believe that
that's really the way the New Earth is going to be.
5. OF COURSE, THE EARTH
IN THE MILLENNIUM IS GOING TO BE THE SAME EARTH, this one as we now
know it, except for the horrible mess man will have made out of it
& awful destruction in the aftermath of the atomic wars & man's
wars & the Antichrist, the Wrath of God & Armageddon! When we
get this thing back it's going to be quite a mess! No wonder it's going
to take a thousand years to kind of get things cleaned up & try to
teach some of those people something! But it'll still be the old Earth
as it now is, particularly the parts that haven't been ravaged &
ruined, still the same plants & animals & trees & the birds
& the bees & quite a few of the same people!
6. THAT'LL BE A WHOLE
NEW EARTH THEN IN THE DAYS OF THE NEW HEAVEN & THE NEW EARTH, but
why shouldn't it be just as beautiful, if not more beautiful, than the
present Earth?--A restoration of the creation of God, the New Earth,
only no more seas. Well, I'm convinced that's the way it's going to be,
& that's what I saw. I know you can't base everything just on
revelations, dreams & visions--although a lot of the Bible is!
7. I CAN REMEMBER THERE
USED TO BE PEOPLE IN THE CHURCHES THAT SAID: "WELL, IF IT'S NOT IN THE
BIBLE, I DON'T BELIEVE IT! You just can't base everything on dreams
& visions & revelations, it's gotta be the Word!"--Real Scribes
& Pharisees! Well, I wonder what they did with all those dreams
& visions & revelations & messages & angelic creatures
& whatnot in the Bible? How do they think they got the Bible
then!--Ha! It's nothing but one revelation after another, one vision
after another--dreams & visions & revelations--so I don't see
why you can't base part of your faith on what the Lord's shown you
& I saw recently today!
8. AS I LOOKED OUT OVER
THE WALL FROM THE HEIGHTS, somewhere way up in the City, I could see
right through the City itself, transparent, beautiful rolling green
hills, trees, grass & what looked like farms, etc., the World
renewed again as the Lord originally had intended for it to be, but
without the Curse, without the Devil's pests & Devil's demons, a
beautiful perfect World! So why should God's plan be defeated if that's
what He originally planned?
9. IN THE MILLENNIUM
WE'VE STILL GOT THE SAME OLD POLLUTED, WRECKED, RAVAGED & RUINED
EARTH that man has made a wreck of & God has not yet completely
redeemed. In fact, it's obvious that He could not fully redeem the
Earth as long as wicked men were still around that disobeyed the Lord
& followed the Devil, as they do at the end of the Millennium.
Thank You Lord for a Scripture: "The whole creation groaneth, waiting
to be delivered!" (Rom.8:22) Hallelujah! I'll tell you, the Bible's got
some corkers! The Lord almost always gives me some Scripture to confirm
something to uncork the Truth!
10. SEE, THE WHOLE
CREATION IS IN A SENSE UNDER THE CURSE OF SIN & the Devil & his
demons & his pests & vipers & thorns & thistles &
everything else, & it's not going to be completely delivered even
in the Millennium.--Although much of the Curse has been removed during
the Millennium for those who obey, there are still conditions. But in
the New Earth it is going to be completely new & perfect & pure
& the way God intended for it to be in the first place, otherwise
His whole plan has been defeated!
11. I BELIEVE GOD MADE
THE EARTH BEAUTIFUL & A PERFECT PLACE FOR ADAM & EVE TO DWELL
IN TO BEGIN WITH, & I believe that's the way it's going to be
again, like the Garden of God! And that's the way it looked, at least
from where I was! Of course, I was quite a ways away & pretty high
up, like looking down from the top of the Empire State Building or
something, only a lot higher than that!--Almost more like looking down
from an airplane! I only remember that one view, that one time I got to
look out over the Earth & see how beautiful it was!
12. (FAMILY: THERE'S A
VERSE ABOUT THE MILLENNIUM THAT TALKS ABOUT THE CHILD PLAYING ON THE
HOLE OF AN ASP.--Does that mean there will still be some of the Devil's
pests?) (Is.11:8) They will be there, but pets!--Not pests! Obviously
He says that the asp will be there, even the scorpions will be there,
but they'll almost be like toys for the children to play with!--No
sting, no poison, no venom!
13. AND OF COURSE THE
SCEPTICS ALWAYS MAKE FUN OF THAT SCRIPTURE about "the cow & the
bear shall feed, & the lion shall eat straw like the ox."
(Isa.11:7) They say, "They couldn't possibly do that, they're
carnivorous beasts, that's impossible, blah blah blah blah!" Well,
nothing's impossible with the Lord! Amen? (Lk.1:37)
14. WHAT DID THEY EAT
BEFORE GOD ALLOWED THEM TO EAT EACH OTHER AFTER THE FLOOD? There wasn't
enmity between either men or man & beasts before the Flood, think
of that. They were not carnivorous before the Flood. Men didn't eat
beasts & beasts didn't eat men & they didn't eat each other,
but they must have lived somehow. (Ge.1:30) Well actually, the funny
thing about it is that most people don't know that bears, for example,
are not normally carnivorous, they are herbivorous, & they eat
mostly berries & roots & plants & things like that. You
don't think of a bear as being something that just goes around picking
berries off of bushes, but they do!
15. YOU PROBABLY
REMEMBER THE STORY I TOLD ABOUT MY MOTHER & THE BERRY BUSH! I was a
little kid about Techi's size & I can remember it yet, because I
can remember my Mother screaming! We were in Yosemite in the days when
Yosemite Valley wasn't packed with tens of thousands of people & it
was still pretty primitive, & we stopped by the side of the road
where there were these nice wild blackberry bushes, something like we
had at the Farm in France, only those were bitter. We were frugal &
trying to economise, trying to scrounge a little, so my Mother had us
kids out there helping her pick berries off of these bushes that were
just lining the edge of the highway.
16. AND ALL OF A SUDDEN
SHE REALISED SOMEBODY WAS PICKING BERRIES ON THE OTHER SIDE OF THE
BUSH, & she looked over there & here was this bear standing
there on his hind feet, eyeball-to-eyeball, looking at her across the
bush, & he was eating berries off the bush too!
17. AND MY MOTHER BEGAN
TO SCREAM! She ran for the car & she was so excited, she got all
mixed up & said, "Open the windows & shut the doors! Open the
windows & shut the doors!" She meant just the opposite, she meant,
open the doors & shut the windows so that we can jump in &
close the doors! She thought sure that bear was chasing her, but he was
just as surprised as she was & went scurrying off through the
18. SO BEARS ARE
NATURALLY HERBIVOROUS. They eat berries & plants & they scrub
for roots & things like that. They don't normally eat animals or
attack man, although there are some beasts that seem to be designed to
be carnivorous, such as the lion, & it mentions the leopard in one
of those Scriptures too. (Isa.11:6)
19. OF COURSE, WITH SOME
OF THOSE NAMES IT'S A LITTLE DIFFICULT TO KNOW EXACTLY FOR SURE WHAT
ANIMAL THEY'RE TALKING ABOUT, because they were translated from the
original Hebrew. The English translators were pretty sure they got most
of the right names, but there's been a little controversy about some of
those names as to whether they got the right animal or not.
20. SOME OF THOSE
ANIMALS WERE EVEN UNKNOWN IN BRITAIN BY THE ENGLISH, or even in Europe,
so they're not even sure whether they got'm all straight or not! When
we read those lists of animals, in the unclean animals list, etc., we
don't even recognise a lot of those names of the creatures. (Lev.11) So
that's a pretty hard thing to do in Europe, trying to translate into
English things people are talking about that existed maybe only in the
Mideast or somewhere over yonder. But I think they probably got'm as
good as they could.
21. ANYWAY, IF OXEN
& BEARS & THOSE HUGE ANIMALS CAN LIVE OFF OF PLANTS & GRASS
& GRAIN & WHATNOT, WHY COULDN'T THE LIONS & THE LEOPARDS?
Hmm? You say, "Well, they don't have a cud." Well, not all creatures
that eat things like that have cuds either! These guys that are always
picking bones with the Bible & always trying to criticise, they
say: "Well, how can that be? They weren't designed to eat grain &
grass, they're designed to eat flesh!"
22. WELL, APPARENTLY MAN
WAS ORIGINALLY DESIGNED TO EAT GRAINS & GRASS & FRUITS &
PLANTS & VEGETABLES, but the Lord turned around & had to give
him flesh to eat as well after the Flood, or maybe he wouldn't have
survived this long. (Ge.9:3) I think flesh was necessary for health,
apparently, or God would not have given it to man to eat after the
Flood. You notice they then began living very short lives, apparently,
because now the cosmic rays came through & shortened life, &
the Lord must have known we needed flesh in order to survive & have
the necessary strength.
23. SCIENCE DOES SAY
THERE ARE CERTAIN AMINO ACIDS IN ANIMAL FLESH WHICH YOU CANNOT GET ANY
OTHER WAY, WHICH MAN NEEDS TODAY, which apparently he didn't need
before the Flood because man was strictly herbivorous. Did you know
that? I'm sure you must have if you've read the Letters! He only ate
plants & vegetables & things like that, strictly vegetarian
before the Flood.
24. I KNOW LOTS OF THE
HIPPIES & ORIENTAL RELIGIONS & THE SEVENTH-DAY ADVENTISTS &
A FEW OTHERS ALL BELIEVE IN BEING STRICTLY VEGETARIAN & they seem
to be surviving pretty well & are pretty husky, but I don't think
you ever heard of very many Seventh-day Adventists or Buddhist monks
who were outstanding athletes or superb examples of strength, as are
those who do eat flesh. Apparently we need it now since the Flood.
25. BUT OBVIOUSLY IN THE
MILLENNIUM IT'S GOING TO BE LIKE IT WAS BEFORE THE FLOOD, OR EVEN LIKE
IT WAS IN THE GARDEN OF EDEN. Apparently we're not going to eat flesh
then, we'll all be herbivorous again since the animals will be at peace
with man. Both man & beast will return to vegetarianism during the
Millennium, because apparently he won't need the extra strength of
animal flesh to survive. The Curse will have been at least partially
removed & we won't be suffering the ill effects of whatever it was
that shortened life after the Flood.
26. LIFE IS OBVIOUSLY
AGAIN GOING TO BE LENGTHENED, EVEN IN THE MILLENNIUM, TO GREAT
LONGEVITY! If anybody dies at 100 years of age they'll say he was just
a child! (Isa.65:20) Before the Flood, when men lived to be nearly a
thousand years of age, if somebody had died at the age of 100 you would
have thought, "Poor fellow, just a babe!" That's what it means in that
Scripture "for the child shall die an hundred years old." In other
words, anybody dying at 100 will be just considered a child!
27. SO OBVIOUSLY THE
CAUSE OF MAN'S SHORTENED LIFE SPAN WHICH OCCURRED AFTER THE FLOOD WILL
BE REMOVED.--Whether it was cosmic rays or whatever it was. Certainly
by the judgements of God, no doubt, man's life had to be shortened,
because he became so wicked he would have done even more damage if he'd
28. THIS IS WHY KING
DAVID WRITES BY THE ANOINTING OF THE HOLY SPIRIT: "THE YEARS OF A MAN'S
LIFE ARE THREESCORE & TEN." That's the allotted life span of man in
this present age of grace since the Flood. He says, "And if by reason
of great strength they be fourscore, yet is their strength labour &
sorrow." In other words, if you do manage to be 80, it's just that much
more trouble! (Ps.90:10)
29. BOTH OF MY PARENTS
LIVED TO BE UP INTO THEIR 80s & so did my Grandfather & nearly
all my grandparents as well, Maria's too, were all very long-lived.
That was the first thing they asked me when I went to take out life
insurance when I was young, they were more interested in the health of
my grandparents than they were interested in my health for some reason!
30. I SAID, "WHY ARE YOU
ASKING ME ALL THAT? What difference does it make how long my
grandparents & parents lived?" He said, "We have found through
experience that the people whose parents & grandparents lived long
lives are most apt to live a long life themselves!" No doubt God
blessed those people with long lives because they were good &
righteous & lived healthfully, & therefore probably taught
their children to live the same way. "Therefore you who are taking out
this insurance, are most apt to live like them & live a long time
like they did."
31. FOR APPARENTLY AFTER
THE FLOOD, MUCH WAS ALL CHANGED & they didn't live a thousand years
any more, they did very well to make a hundred! A few of them did &
it kept getting shorter all the time, if you'll notice, until after the
first few hundred years, by about the time of the Tower of Babel, men
were living lives about the same length as today. Only a rare one ever
reached a hundred or more like Moses, 120, due to some special blessing
32. THE AVERAGE MAN
LIVED TO BE ABOUT 70, & 70 is still about the average, except for a
few who manage to live longer. There are a few who live to be 100 &
certain places some of them claim 130, 140! I think that's about the
highest they've claimed, somewhere back in the Himalayas or the
mountains of Russia. Of course, how are you going to know for
sure?--And that's still a far cry from a thousand!
33. SO OBVIOUSLY MAN'S
LIFE WAS GREATLY SHORTENED AFTER THE FLOOD, & some of the
scientists who are Christians believe it had something to do with the
water vapour that disappeared after the Flood, which used to cover the
Earth before the Flood. You recall that before the Flood they never had
any rain, they didn't have to. They had just as much plant life &
foliage & grass & farms & all the rest, but it was all
watered by a mist that rose from the face of the Earth like a dew.
34. WHO KNOWS, IT MIGHT
HAVE BEEN A LOT MISTIER THEN. Some of those scientists who are
Christians--I don't say Christian Scientists because that means
something else--but some of the scientists who are Christians believe
that there was some kind of a haze in the atmosphere which protected us
from the cosmic rays which now shorten life.
35. BUT WHATEVER IT WAS
THAT THE PROTECTION WAS--that or otherwise, natural or
supernatural--whatever it is, it's natural with God--the Lord will
restore it during the Millennium & men will again live a long time.
And there are possibly people who survive the holocaust that precedes
it--the survivors that God blesses with survival into the
Millennium--who are going to live then for hundreds of years after
36. SO THESE
PROGNOSTICATORS OF POPULATION EXPLOSION & "we're going to overrun
the Earth & there's not going to be enough to eat" are all wet! For
one thing, an awful lot of people are going to be wiped out in the last
days of the atomic wars & the Antichrist & the Tribulation
& the Wrath of God & all that! It says in one place two-thirds
of the population will be killed! (Zech.13:8) So we'll be back to
square one with only one-third as much population!
37. AND IF THEY'RE GOING
TO MATURE THAT SLOWLY & LIVE THAT LONG, THEY WON'T GET MARRIED AS
YOUNG OR HAVE AS MANY CHILDREN. Just like the early days after the
Garden of Eden, before the Flood, you hardly hear of anybody having
children before they were up in their 60s & 70s & 80s! Most of
them were having their first son when they were in their 60s! Go back
& read the genealogies! They aren't there just for a decoration,
they tell you something!
38. IN OTHER WORDS, YOU
MIGHT SAY THE MATURING IS SLOWER. Apparently they're not as horny &
gung-ho to get in a hurry for sex! I don't know about me or some of
you, but maybe you'll cool off a bit in the Millennium! Maybe you'll
have other interests that are more absorbing. We'll still have sex, but
it won't necessarily be a preoccupation as it is today.
39. THEY SAY IT'S A FACT
OF SCIENCE THAT IN THE MORE PRIMITIVE CIVILISATIONS THE WOMEN MATURE
MUCH MORE RAPIDLY. You'll find that all over the World in the Third
World underdeveloped countries, girls are mature & of marriageable
childbearing capability in their younger teens. I remember I noticed
this in my first trip to Mexico, that girls were married women in their
early teens & getting married & having children, & they
were old ladies by the time they were 40!--And dying in their 50s!
40. THEY ALSO BEGIN
MENSTRUATING VERY EARLY IN PRIMITIVE CIVILISATIONS, SOME GIRLS AS YOUNG
AS 7, 8 & 9 YEARS OF AGE! In fact, I've mentioned before the famous
case in Mexico where a 7-year-old boy had sex with a 5-year-old girl
& she had a child! He was apparently able to have semen & she
was already menstruating, in fact, her mother said she'd been
menstruating since she was three!
41. IT SEEMED ALMOST
IMPOSSIBLE TO BELIEVE, but it was authenticated by American doctors who
went down there & investigated. At five years old she had a child!
You say, "How could that be possible?" Well, I don't know how it was
possible, but it happened! And later on I remember seeing a picture of
her & her son when he was 16 years of age, he was a great big tall
fellow & she was almost like a little pygmy standing alongside of
him!--And she looked like an old lady already!
42. I GUESS THIS IS
ANOTHER LETTER IN THE MILLENNIAL SERIES! I didn't intend for it to be,
I was going to let you guys relax tonight! Maybe you are! But
apparently during the Millennium we're going to live a long time. Of
course, you & I are going to live forever! That's quite a song
they've got now that's so popular: "I'm going to live forever, I'm
going to learn how to fly!" Have you heard it on the radio? All
the pop groups are singing it, & they sing it with real fervour
& inspiration: (See No.1348)
43. "I'M GOING TO LIVE
FOREVER, I'M GOING TO LEARN TO FLY!" We ought to get a recording of
that! I'd like to hear all those words. I've listened to it several
times & it sounds to me like maybe one of our own people or
somebody like us cooked it up! It goes on something like: "So baby,
remember my name, because I'm going to live forever" I don't know
whether all the words are what they oughtta be or not, I haven't been
able to fathom it all, but it's really amazing!
44. SO YOU & I ARE
GOING TO LIVE FOREVER! When the Rapture & the Resurrection come, of
course, our bodies shall rise from the grave, we'll be renewed,
regenerated, restored & will have resurrection bodies that are
immortal, eternal, on which death will no longer have any hold! In
other words, we will be supermen, supernatural, miraculous, in super
bodies that are eternal, united with our eternal spirits.
45. WE'LL HAVE BODIES
WHICH HAVE ALL KINDS OF AMAZING QUALITIES CONSIDERED SUPERNATURAL
TODAY, WHICH WE DON'T HAVE RIGHT NOW, but has happened even on occasion
to some people!--Like the transporting of Philip, Jesus walking through
the mob even before He was resurrected & things like
that!--Transfigured on the Mount of Transfiguration! There were quite a
few supernatural things that happened before His resurrection.
(Ac.8:39,40; Jn.8:59; Lk.4:30; Mt.17:2,3)
46. BUT AFTER THE
RESURRECTION, OF COURSE, JESUS COULD APPEAR & DISAPPEAR AT WILL,
& we will have all those properties & qualities &
capabilities, because we will have our supernatural resurrected bodies,
our eternal bodies during the Millennium. Whereas the people that
survive the holocaust will still be in natural human bodies.
47. THE JEWS TALK ABOUT THE HOLOCAUST, THEY DON'T ANYTHING ABOUT HOLOCAUST YET!
I call that really the holocaust, the combination of man's wars, atomic
wars, the Antichrist, the Tribulation, the Wrath of God & finally
Armageddon! To those who survive that, certainly God is merciful,
because that means they will get to enter the Millennium!
48. THE LORD SAYS TO
DANIEL: "BLESSED IS HE THAT SHALL SURVIVE UNTO THE 1335 DAYS."
(Dan.12:12) And if you figure that out, that is through the Wrath of
God into the Millennium! They will still be in natural, normal human
bodies just like you & me are today. But we, having been
resurrected & raptured, gone to the Marriage Supper of the Lamb
& returned in the great Battle of Armageddon to conquer the World,
will have our supernatural angelic bodies just like the angels of God
& like Jesus has!
49. WE'LL BE LIKE HIM,
GOD'S WORD SAYS SO! (1Jn.3:2) He was born of woman, flesh, He died like
a man, like flesh dies, but He was resurrected like we'll be
resurrected, being in a sense part spirit & part flesh. He was not
purely spirit because He said: "Touch Me, feel Me, see it is I! A
spirit hath not flesh & bone as ye see Me have!" (Lk.24:39) We will
have flesh & bone of some kind, a material resurrected supernatural
body like Jesus has.
50. WE WILL BE LIKE THE
ANGELS, & THE ANGELS CAN APPEAR & DISAPPEAR! In fact, as we
were discussing the other night, the angels can assume the disguises of
men & women, & by this many have entertained angels unawares!
(Heb.13:2) They can look just like you & me, dress like you &
me, go around walking amongst men like you & me!--And they're doing
it today! As I was telling them the other night, that's the way it's
going to be in the Millennium, we are going to be the angels!--Amongst
51. SO WHAT POINT WAS I
TRYING TO PROVE WHEN I STARTED ON THIS ABOUT LONGEVITY & ALL? Man
is apparently going to be herbivorous again, or vegetarian, because
according to the description, there will be no longer an enmity between
man & animals, nor between the animals themselves. "Nothing shall
hurt nor destroy in all My holy mountain." (Isa.11:9) Men will not
destroy each other, they will not destroy the animals, & the
animals will not destroy them nor each other.
52. AND SINCE THERE'S
NOTHING THAT WILL HURT NOR DESTROY, THERE WILL BE NO VENOMOUS INSECTS
OR BEASTS or snakes or serpents or vipers or scorpions or all these
Devil's pests. I think probably a lot of them will be just completely
totally eliminated! There will be no more thorns & thistles &
that sort of thing that came after the Fall of man when He said the
ground would produce thorns & briars, etc. (Ge.3:17,18)
53. IT'S NOT GOING TO BE
THE NEW EARTH, MIND YOU, now get that through your head, but it's going
to be a much better Earth, in a sense, because it's going to be similar
to the Earth the way it was before the Fall of man--like the Garden of
Eden--before all of these curses & these pests, because He says the
Curse will be removed. (Re.22:3) Without the Curse, without the thorns
& the thistles & the briars & the venomous insects &
vipers & ravenous beasts, etc., it's going to be like Heaven on
54. IT WON'T ACTUALLY BE
HEAVEN YET, BUT IT WILL BE A HEAVENLY EARTH because the Curse & all
of its effects & all of its critters & vipers, etc., shall be
removed, & whatever's left behind will no longer be venomous or
viperous or sting or bite or hurt man in any way. Isn't that wonderful?
I'll tell you, we would surely think it was Heaven on Earth if right
out there in the yard right now it was that way. I'm even getting bit
underneath the table already! This "skeeter-stinker" doesn't always
55. SO WITHOUT ALL OF
THAT TO HAVE TO CONTEND WITH, IT'S GOING TO BE A BETTER LIFE ALREADY!
Even the normal natural man who still lives here, over whom we rule,
will have a much better life. The cotton won't be attacked by the boll
weevil, or the corn by the Mediterranean cornborer, & there won't
be all of these afflictions to plants & animals & trees &
diseases, etc.--except as a result of the Curse of God or even our
curses upon our enemies or those who refuse to obey & submit. Only
they will receive the curses of God, otherwise the Earth will be free
of such curses.
56. THE LAND OF GOSHEN
DURING THE PLAGUES OF EGYPT WAS A GOOD PROTOTYPE OF THAT. While all
those plagues were going on in Egypt, the Land of Goshen was completely
free of them! They had no darkness, they had no murrain, they had no
frogs, they had no hail, they had none of that death there! It was
light & beautiful & free of the curses & the plagues of
Egypt. (Ex.8:22; 9:4,26; 10:23; 11:7; 12:13.)
57. BUT EGYPT SUFFERED,
& ANY PEOPLE WHO ACT LIKE EGYPTIANS & WHOSE LANDS ARE MORE LIKE
EGYPT WILL STILL SUFFER! You can read it right in the Bible! It makes
it very clear in passages such as those later chapters of Zechariah if
you want to read them, & a lot in Isaiah & lots of other
places. (Zech.14:17-19) It says that from the nations that will not
obey, God will withhold the rain & there will be famine &
58. SO THE CURSE AS A
WHOLE THAT CAME ON THE EARTH AFTER THE FALL OF MAN WILL BE LIFTED FROM
THE EARTH AS A WHOLE, & it will be selective then, you might say,
which we will implement & apply to peoples & nations or even
towns or cities or individual homes who defy God & His Government
& us & refuse to obey. Because men will still have free will,
that's the strange thing about the Millennium!
59. THERE WILL STILL BE
FREE WILL & CHOICE IN THE MILLENNIUM! How do we know? Because when
the Devil is released from the Pit at the end of the Millennium, what
do they choose to do? The wicked choose to revolt against the
Government of God--which is us headed by Christ--& rebel! Imagine,
they try to actually defy & rebel & rise up in revolution
against the Kingdom of God on Earth! No wonder God gets so furious with
them that he just absolutely wipes them all out! (Re.20:7-9) "For
though mercy has been shown to the wicked, yet he will not learn
60. THE WICKED WHO STILL
REMAIN & WHO ARE STILL OF THAT EVIL MIND & BENT so as to be
deceived by Satan when he comes out of the Pit, to follow him again
after having witnessed & seen the visible personal rule & reign
of Jesus Christ & His Saints on this Earth, & the goodness of
the Government of God, they are going to defy it all & rebel
against God & all His goodness & His Government & us &
follow Satan again! Think of that! That shows you the ultimate in
61. THIS IS WHY I'M
CONVINCED THAT DURING THAT PERIOD MANY MANY PEOPLE WILL BE, IF NOT WHAT
WE CALL "SAVED" TODAY, AT LEAST CHANGED, because many apparently will
obey & submit & follow. It's like a second chance for the
people who survive the Wrath of God & live on into the Millennium.
Man, natural human people, will still be alive & be living much
longer! The Curse will be removed & there will not be all the
things we've had to hassle with so much. They'll have every
advantage!--The good Government of God, the personal reign of Jesus
Christ & the tender loving care of you, His Saints & Angels to
try to help them!
62. JESUS SAID OF
DOUBTING THOMAS: "THOMAS, BECAUSE THOU HAST SEEN, THOU HAST BELIEVED."
I believe the Millennium is going to be designed, in a sense, for the
Doubting Thomases, those who if they had seen, they would have
believed, so God's going to give them a chance to see & to believe.
But He said, "More blessed are ye, who having not seen, yet have
believed." (Jn.20:29) We are the more blessed category, the upper class
who lived by faith & believed even though we hadn't seen!
63. NOW THAT'S A VERY
AMAZING THING, & I've been thinking a lot about that lately, this
business of seeing. Why is there so little visible evidence of the
supernatural? There's lots of evidence of the supernatural, but it is
rare enough that man in general is not convinced. How many have come
back from the dead to say what was on the other side? Well, God is
certainly being more merciful every day & more & more people
are coming back with tales of what they saw on the other side! You
never heard so many before!
64. IT'S LIKE GOD IS
GIVING MAN HIS LAST CHANCE IN EVERY WAY HE CAN TO BELIEVE. He's giving
more & more evidence of His existence & the marvels of His
creation, more & more evidence of the reality of the Spirit World!
He let a whole hippie generation practically discover the Spirit World
through drugs! I believe the Lord allowed it! Of course, many abused
it, but I believe the Lord allowed it that they might discover
something that their parents didn't believe & wouldn't teach them,
or at least didn't teach it convincingly enough, & neither did
65. THEY HAD TO HAVE
PERSONAL FIRSTHAND EXPERIENCE WITH IT THROUGH DRUGS, BUT THEY FOUND THE
SPIRIT WORLD! How many of you ever took a drug trip in which you
discovered the Spirit World when you were back in the System? Let me
see your hands. Come on, don't be ashamed of it! Good night, I've had
such trips without drugs! I mean where you were convinced that you were
really in the spirit in another World, in a sense out of the flesh
& out of this World! They say that on some of those things, like
peyote that the Indians use, you can walk across the room & look
back at your body sitting in a chair, the separation of spirit from
body & that sort of thing!
66. SO GOD IN HIS MERCY
HAS ALLOWED THIS YOUNGER GENERATION TO HAVE EXTRA PROOF, extra evidence
of the existence of the spiritual to try to convince them that He
exists & the Spirit World does exist, in fact that the Devil
exists, because some of the trips they had were like Hell!
67. GOD IS BEING EXTRA
MERCIFUL TO THIS LAST GENERATION, I BELIEVE IT! When did the Lord ever
give so much Word before? When has any generation ever heard so much
& had so much explained to them? When has any generation ever had
so much revealed to them as we have had?--In the spirit, dreams,
visions, revelations, prophecies! I don't think any generation before
us has ever had the Lord reveal so much!
68. THE LORD IS JUST
GOING ALL OUT, THE 110TH MILE, TO TRY TO REVEAL HIMSELF TO YOU & TO
ME, TO HELP US BELIEVE! And yet there's a certain barrier beyond which
He will not go. And to those who will not believe, as He said, "Though
one were to come back from the dead, yet they would not believe!"
(Lk.16:31)--The Scribes & the Pharisees & some of those critics
of His & unbelievers & those of whom He said through Stephen:
"Ye do always resist the Holy Ghost!" (Ac.7:51)
69. THERE ARE GOING TO
BE THOSE SO STUBBORN & REBELLIOUS OF HEART & MIND & so
Satanic & diabolically conditioned, even with the Devil & his
demons gone, they're going to be of the same evil mind just naturally,
natural carnal evil men! Without the help of Satan or his devils,
they're still going to be mean & we're going to have to deal with
70. THAT'S WHY WE HAVE
TO RULE WITH A ROD OF IRON! He said he shall dash the nations &
their power to pieces, into shivers like a piece of pottery! (Rev.2:27)
They'll have no more power--we'll be the power, we'll be the
government! None of their guns nor their armaments nor their atom bombs
or anything else are going to do them any good then, we're going to
abolish the whole military machine!--The World's first genuine
71. WE WILL BE THE
POWER, WE WILL HAVE THE FORCE! And what that rod of iron will be, only
God knows, but according to instances in the Bible, people were made
immobile, they were blinded, devoured by fire from Heaven & all
kinds of things when God wanted to stop'm! The things you see on
television in sci-fi movies, that's the kind of powers we'll have,
& we won't need any little pistols to do it! We'll just look at
them or think it or point our finger at them or whatever we want to do!
They won't be able to touch us or do a thing, we will be the power
& the government in control!
72. BUT IN SPITE OF ALL
THAT VISIBLE EVIDENCE OF THE POWER OF GOD & the people of God &
the Government of God & the Son of God--Jesus Christ Himself
personally ruling the Earth in the flesh with His capital at
Jerusalem--there will be people who still don't like it!--The really
carnally-minded & evil-minded people who still will rebel against
73. THROUGHOUT THE
MILLENNIUM THERE WILL BE PEOPLE LIKE THAT THAT WE WILL HAVE TO DEAL
WITH & FORCE TO OBEY--WITH FORCE! But not all! That's the point I'm
getting at tonight, it's my conviction from what I've read in the Bible
& what I've seen & heard, that the vast majority of the people
when they see, they will believe!
74. TODAY THE VAST
MAJORITY OF THE PEOPLE DO NOT SEE. They are not seeing the miracles,
they are not seeing the manifestation in the Spirit, they are not
seeing the evidence of after-death experiences. The people to whom God
has been that good & merciful to go that far to show them the
Spirit World, after-death experiences, miracles, supernatural powers,
spiritual supernatural evidence of the other World & His
Kingdom--would you say they are the majority of the people today?--No!
75. HE'S GIVEN THEM LOTS
OF NATURAL EVIDENCE! In fact, He says the whole creation proves His
existence, so they're without excuse! The natural creation of God
proves the existence of God. (Rom.1:20) I believe many people believe
because they see the handiwork of God, they cannot help but believe.
They believe because of what they see! Many people are persuaded even
by the marvels of Creation!
76. DID YOU KNOW THAT
WHEN THE FIRST HANDBOOK OF AMERICAN SCIENTISTS WAS PRINTED BACK IN THE
'20s that only about 20-some-percent of American scientists claimed to
believe in any kind of God or Supreme Being or spiritual Superior Power
or Creator? But about ten years ago before we left the States, the
Handbook of American Scientists--all the most famous & important
scientists of the U.S., listed in their various fields--76% of them
said that they believed there was some kind of Superior Power or
Designer or Creator or God or Providence or whatever they want to call
it, higher than man, that was in control!
77. NOW THAT IS QUITE A
JUMP IN FAITH!--Why? Because like I quoted Dr. Steiner, who was
considered the greatest living authority on the human cell, after 30
years of studying the human cell he said: "I'm more & more
convinced, the more I study, the more I marvel & wonder at the
Designer behind it all!" Sort of like what Dr. Robert A. Milliken said
about the watch. (No.736)
78. IN OTHER WORDS, THE
MORE THEY STUDY, THE MORE THEY SEE HIS HANDIWORK, THE MORE THEY SEE THE
DIVINE ORDER, THE PLAN, THE PERFECTION!--I take an egg in my hand every
morning, in fact I take three eggs, & I look at every one of them
before I break it & I think: "What a marvel of perfection, what a
geometrically perfect form!" It's not a perfect globe, it's not a mere
oval, it is a most marvellous, beautiful creation! One little chicken
egg! I almost hate to break it! I look at that & I thank the Lord!
79. I SAY, "THANK YOU
JESUS FOR THIS BEAUTIFUL CREATION!" And just think, one little humble
lowly chicken out in some poor man's chicken yard does that every day,
creates a marvel of creation like that! Beautiful! Just take a look at
an egg sometime, what a beautiful perfect orb it is, ovular orb! It's
not a perfect globe, but it's ovular, somewhat oval, yet the curves
& everything are so gorgeous--like you girls & your curves,
there's nothing more beautiful! But even that one little lowly egg is a
marvel of God's creation!
80. SO DR. STEINER SAID
THAT THE MORE HE STUDIED THE CELL, THE MORE HE REALISED THERE HAD TO BE
A DESIGNER, A CREATOR! The percentage of these honest open-minded
scientists who are honest & willing to confess that the more they
study, the more they realise there's a Designer & Creator, somebody
behind it all, has leaped from the 20s to the 70s in about 50
years!--Three times as many!
81. THE SCIENTISTS
THEMSELVES ARE BECOMING MEN OF FAITH & BEGINNING TO BELIEVE MORE
THAN THE PEOPLE! But the pseudo-scientists, the false prophets of
science falsely so-called, vain & profane babblers of evolution,
etc. (1Ti.6:20), who have been deceiving the people all these years,
these so-called scientists have now got the people hoodwinked now so
that the average person now believes in evolution!--When the greatest
scientists themselves no longer believe in it! Think of that!
82. SCIENTIST AFTER
SCIENTIST SAYS EVOLUTION IS PASSE, it's shot full of holes, it's
impossible to prove & it's unlikely! The majority of reputable,
reliable scientists today no longer have the faith in evolution they
once had. But what's happened? Boy, the Devil used it & he got it
into the textbooks, & he got it to the students & the teachers
so that you can hardly be a teacher & part of the educational
system today unless you affirm your loyalty & faith in
evolution.--That's what my brother said! He was an educational
administrator in Northern California for many years, vice-president of
three different colleges, & he almost as good as told me, when
you're fighting evolution, you're fighting a losing game! It's
83. EVOLUTION IS THE
CONFIRMED, ESTABLISHED, ACCEPTED FAITH OF SCIENCE TODAY, OF AT LEAST
EDUCATIONAL SCIENCE. The Devil got in where the students were, where
the young people were, the children were. Whereas the really great
scientists like Einstein & many others have confessed their faith
in some higher Power, in Someone behind it all!
84. SO WHAT I'M SAYING
IS THIS: PEOPLE WHO REALLY ARE HONEST & OPEN-MINDED & ARE
WILLING TO LEARN, GOD HAS SHOWN THEM!--Not the people who say, "Shut
up, my mind is made up, I don't want to be confused with the
facts!"--They prefer to believe their theories & their fairy tales
& their lies of the Devil! To translate that passage in Romans into
modern language: The obvious existence of God in His eternal Godhead
has been evident or manifest through the things that He has made, in
other words, through His creation. (Rom.1:20)
85. THE EXISTENCE OF GOD
IS PROVED BY HIS CREATION! That's why the Devil attacked Creation most
of all, because the Creation of God is the greatest proof of His
existence to human man in this present era, the ones who only believe
what they can see. OK, they can see it, so they believe it. And the
honest ones who are willing to confess it, believe that there had to be
Somebody behind it, some Higher Power that designed it, created it
& runs it!
86. SO THE POINT IS THAT
GOD HAS REVEALED HIMSELF TO NATURAL MAN TODAY THROUGH HIS NATURAL
CREATION. That's widespread & nearly everybody can see it &
nearly everybody can believe it who will, right? God has gone that far
to prove His existence, & that's far enough, really. They shouldn't
have to have any further proof. And yet God has gone further than that
87. BUT THE ONES TO WHOM
HE HAS REVEALED HIMSELF SUPERNATURALLY, miraculously, spiritually by
spiritual experiences, supernatural experiences, miracles, trips into
the beyond, would you say that's everybody? Would you say that's the
vast majority? Would you say that's even a simple majority? Would you
even say that's a very large minority? I would say the people to whom
God's gone that far to reveal Himself in the supernatural & the
miraculous & the spiritual by such experiences, are a very small
few & a rare exception!
88. SO THE VAST MAJORITY
OF THE SAVED TODAY HAVE TO BELIEVE THOUGH HAVING NOT SEEN! The
wonderful thing about it though...(Dad had a pain!) thank You Jesus!
PYL! In Jesus' name. Please pray for me, that's the second time that's
happened. I don't think the Devil likes this at all. That's better.
TYL! Amen. TYJ! We rebuke Satan in the Name of Jesus Christ! We resist
you, Oplexicon! We resist you, Satan, in Jesus' name! "Resist the Enemy
& he will flee from you!" (Jam.4:7) TYL! The minute you start
praying for me I get instant deliverance! Marvellous! The Devil doesn't
like this though. He can only touch us sometimes, but he can't get the
victory. TTL!--Not if we don't quit!
89. SO THE VAST MAJORITY
TODAY IN THIS ERA HAVE NEVER REALLY SEEN. They have seen the glory
& the wonders of God in His Creation--this He reveals to everyone,
& through this they should all believe. And I'd say the vast
majority of people in the World--don't go by the educated Worldly
Godless Americans & Europeans & the West--but if you take
two-thirds or more of the World who are primitive countries, maybe all
of them have some kind of religion & believe in some kind of Higher
Power. They believe there's some kind of God!
90. IT TAKES THESE
HIGHLY-EDUCATED PEOPLE WHO GO THROUGH COLLEGE & UNIVERSITY YEARS TO
GET THEMSELVES TO THE POINT WHERE THEY'RE SO WELL-EDUCATED THEY NO
LONGER BELIEVE IN GOD! Whereas any simple little fool or farmer or
peasant or peon out there working the fields & seeing the wonders
of God's Creation firsthand, the growth of plants & animals &
His marvels of creation, can't help but believe in God! They can see
His handiwork everywhere & even feel it! But the people who live in
the cities & see nothing but the creations of man, they get away
from acknowledging the existence of God.
91. BUT STILL THE VAST
MAJORITY OF THE PEOPLE HAVE NOT SEEN MIRACLES OR SUPERNATURAL
MANIFESTATIONS or spirit-trips or revelations or heard prophecies or
had dreams or visions or after-death experiences, right? This
dispensation, this day or this era in which we now live & have been
living since almost the very beginning, has had to mostly believe
92. THE WORLD SAYS,
"SEEING IS BELIEVING!" That's their criterion, "Seeing is believing!
Show me, I'll believe it when I see it!" Like that guy said to Dr. Moon
after one of his lectures. I was there when it happened & it was
really funny! He'd have questions & answers after the lecture &
this smart-aleck came up & said, "Well, Dr. Moon, I'm not saying
there isn't a God, I'm just an agnostic, I just don't know!" And Dr.
Moon, who was real quick on the wit said, "Well, instead of using the
Greek word 'agnostic', why don't you use the Latin word for 'I don't
know!': 'I'm an ignoramus!'"
93. IN SPITE OF THE
MARVELLOUS CREATION OF GOD ALL AROUND US THAT TESTIFIES TO HIS
EXISTENCE, the vast majority of the World today have not had any
so-called supernatural experiences, spiritual experiences, dreams,
visions, revelations, prophecies, tongues, gifts of the Spirit or
after-death experiences. I would say that's only a small minority of
the World to whom God has been that merciful & that good & has
gone that far to really try to convince them by giving them a little
glimpse of spiritual realities.
94. "NOW WE SEE THROUGH
A GLASS DARKLY, THEN FACE TO FACE." (1Cor.13:12) He's given a few a
little glimpse into those things--you! You're a part of that very small
minority of people who have had supernatural experiences &
supernatural revelations! You have heard the dreams & prophecies
& visions & revelations of God & you've had the baptism of
the Holy Spirit & received supernatural gifts of the Spirit, but
you're a very small few. In fact, most of the rest of the so-called
normal World thinks you're abnormal, subnormal or just plain crazy
because you're off the norm, eccentric, that the normal is not to have
such things. Really they're off base if off Jesus!
95. I'M TRYING TO BRING
OUT A POINT TO YOU THAT HAS COME STRONGLY TO ME MORE & MORE LATELY
IN RELATION TO THE MILLENNIUM, & that is that today, most people
have to believe purely by faith without seeing. Now I believe that in
most cases where they truly genuinely honestly believe, though having
not seen, that they will see some evidence, some proof, some change, if
nothing else than in their own lives. They will feel it, they will see
96. ONCE HAVING
BELIEVED, THEN GOD WILL HONOUR THAT FAITH BY LETTING THEM SEE &
FEEL & TO KNOW THE PROOF!--But it's still a very small minority.
"Straight is the gate & narrow is the way that leadeth unto life
eternal & few there be that find it!" Jesus Himself said. "But wide
is the gate & broad is the way that leads unto destruction, &
many there be that go in thereat." (Mt.7:13,14)
97. SO THE VAST MAJORITY
OF THE PEOPLE ARE BLIND, ignorant, unwilling, unbelieving, stupid,
really, & blind leaders of the blind, followers of blind leaders,
& the vast majority are wrong. The vast majority today are wicked,
unsaved & unbelieving! They have not seen nor believed.
98. THIS AGE IN WHICH
WE'RE NOW LIVING IS A VERY EXTRA-SPECIAL AGE, THE DISPENSATION OF
GRACE, SO-CALLED. THE AGE OF GRACE! You've probably heard it called
that before even if you didn't go through Bible College & a lot of
theological cemeterianism. But since the days of the Fall of man &
the Garden of Eden, we are living in what is now known as the Age of
99. SOME PEOPLE SAY,
"WELL, IT DIDN'T HAPPEN UNTIL JESUS DIED ON THE CROSS, & before
that they were living in the age of Law under the Mosaic Law!" Nobody
was ever saved by the Mosaic Law! No one has ever been saved by
anything but the grace of God! And no one has ever been saved except by
the grace of God through Jesus Christ, whether it was before or since
Jesus Christ! We are all children of Abraham by faith! (Gal.3:7)
Abraham was saved by faith!--And Paul goes on through the whole 11th
Chapter of Hebrews saying it's all by faith, all of it!
100. SO I THINK THIS WAS COOKED UP BY SCOFIELD & SOME OF HIS JEWISH ILK
ABOUT THE VARIOUS DISPENSATIONS: The Adamic Covenant, the Noahic
Covenant, the Abramic Covenant, the Mosaic Covenant & blah blah!
God only has one covenant with man, only one contract that'll save him,
& that's signed by the blood of Jesus Christ! Even your Bible is
called Old Testament & New Testament, meaning old covenant, new
covenant, old contract, new contract. "Old Testament" is a misnomer.
101. NOBODY WAS EVER
SAVED BY KEEPING THE MOSAIC LAW OR ANY LAW OF MOSES! Nobody was ever
saved by the Old Testament, ever! You are only saved by the New
Testament, the new covenant, the covenant of the blood of Christ! In
fact, that is not even new, because He is the Lamb which was slain
before the foundation of the Earth! (Rev.13:8) And His Covenant of
Grace has been in existence since the World began!--With many looking
forward to it. (Heb.11:26, 39 & 40)
102. WE NOW KNOW THAT
THERE'S NO SUCH THING AS TIME TO GOD! It's all past, it's all fact
& all an accomplished act & all done! Even before the World was
created, in the mind of God, Jesus was as good as crucified already
& it was already the day of grace! Adam had to be saved by faith in
the Word of God & the blood of Christ even though Jesus was not
even born yet!
103. THIS IS WHY ABEL
WAS TOLD TO SLAY A LAMB, a type looking forward to the future death of
the Lamb of God, Jesus Christ, & the shedding of His blood for sin.
Abel obeyed, he used that type, he offered that kind of sacrifice,
showing his faith, by faith in the future blood of Jesus Christ! But
Cain didn't. He refused to believe & he offered his own kind of
sacrifice, his own self-righteous works. He thought he could do it some
other way than God's way.
104. SO MAN HAS NEVER
BEEN SAVED BY ANYTHING BUT BY GRACE THROUGH FAITH! No other way!
Nobody's ever been saved any other way but by faith in Christ! And
these old circumcision & concision & Scribes & Pharisees
amongst the Jewish Christians such as Scofield & their ilk, &
the so-called Hebrew Christians who are claiming that they've got some
special rank or dispensation of grace of God just because they're
Jewish, that's a lot of baloney!--It's shit!--Just plain shit, that's
the best word I can use for it! As dear Isaiah said: "Your own
righteousness is filthy menstruous rags!"--Like a dirty kotex to God!
105. SO NOBODY'S EVER
BEEN SAVED ANY OTHER WAY, EXCEPT BY GRACE THROUGH FAITH, EVEN FROM THE
VERY BEGINNING! (Eph.2:8) That's the only way that Adam could get
saved, if he was saved, & apparently he must have believed! He
certainly had every reason to believe! In fact, in some ways there was
more evidence of the existence of God then when God was actually
talking to man & teaching & training him & clothing him.
106. WHO DO YOU THINK
TAUGHT MAN HOW TO PLOW THE GROUND & RAISE HIS OWN FOOD & DO ALL
THE REST? The first poor animals that had to be killed had to be killed
to clothe man, think of that! (Ge.3:21) Woman's first fur coat! It cost
a lot, it cost a life.--The shedding of blood again, another type of
how we are to be clothed with righteousness through the shedding of
blood. Man's own skin was no longer able to save him from the elements,
he had to have an animal killed & its skin to protect him. Because
even the weather changed, the climate changed, everything changed due
to the judgements of God on man's sin.
107. SO THERE WAS MORE
EVIDENCE THEN OF THE EXISTENCE OF GOD & HIS WORK AMONGST MEN, &
in a sense, visible audible evidence of His existence, because He had
to have very very direct contact with men in those days. He did many
mighty miracles like the Flood & even the confusion of tongues,
& a lot of things happened back in the early days which were a very
outstanding evidence of the existence of God--even if they were
judgements of God--many mighty miracles of God that proved His
existence in those days.
108. I WOULD SAY THAT IN
YEARS SINCE THEN, PERHAPS THERE HAVE NOT BEEN AS MANY VISIBLE, AUDIBLE,
TANGIBLE EVIDENCES OF HIS EXISTENCE--I'm talking about supernatural
evidences--as there were even in those early days. Man has had to more
& more believe God by faith. All through this age, from the days of
Adam & Eve until Jesus comes again, man has still got to believe
God by faith, believe in God by faith, & receive salvation purely
by faith in the grace of God through Jesus Christ! It's by pure faith
today, & always has been!
109. BUT NOW GETTING
BACK TO THE MILLENNIUM! You probably thought I never would get from
Genesis on back to Revelation again! Like Mama Eve used to say: "You
never can talk about any subject but what you've got to begin in
Genesis & go all the way to Revelation!" Well, I'm like a lawyer,
I'm proving my case & trying to show you something that maybe never
dawned on you before. TYJ! Bless & help us! Thank You for answering
prayer! The Lord healed me so I guess He must want me to go on.
110. THINK OF THE
CONTRAST TODAY & EVER SINCE ADAM & EVE--MAN HAS REALLY HAD TO
LIVE BY FAITH, believe by faith & without so much visible,
tangible, audible, miraculous, supernatural evidence of the existence
of God--certainly not as much as there will be during the Millennium!
111. HOW MUCH MORE COULD
YOU ASK FOR THAN THE EVIDENCE THAT THERE WILL BE DURING THE MILLENNIUM,
when man will be able to see the visible power of God through you &
me & the visible, personal embodiment of God in Jesus Christ as
King of kings & Ruler of the Earth in the Kingdom Come! The Kingdom
of God on Earth! The lifting of the Curse! The supernatural restoration
of the World as far as He can go without burning it up &
re-creating it, which He'll have to do eventually.
112. I MIGHT USE THE
WORD I'VE USED BEFORE, THAT IN A SENSE THE MILLENNIUM WILL BE A
REFORMATION, NOT A REVOLUTION! In fact, revolution is even too mild a
word to use for the New Earth & the New Heaven! It's a re-creation,
a regeneration, a whole new creation! But the Millennium will be, you
might even say, an attempted reformation. It's not that God's so dumb
He doesn't know it's going to fail, but its very failure in a
sense--you may think it's a failure--has a purpose. Even some of the
courses & tests I flunked were not failures, I learned! I never
made that mistake again!
113. EVERYTHING SUCCEEDS
SOMEHOW! Even the spankings you got when you were a little boy, David,
were good for you. Maybe you failed, but the spanking didn't fail, Mama
& Daddy didn't fail, & eventually you didn't fail! And here you
are, a better boy, a better girl, better children than ever before! So
it wasn't a failure. Just because God has to put us through all these
things to teach us & train us--& as somebody has said, &
"learned us"--doesn't mean that it's a failure!--Just because some
people flunked! Do you get it?
114. AND JUST BECAUSE
THIS PRESENT AGE SINCE ADAM FOR THE PAST 6,000 YEARS LOOKS LIKE IT HAS
BEEN LARGELY A FAILURE & most of the people flunked, doesn't
necessarily mean that this age was a flop! God got out of this age the
cream of the crop! Out of the testing & the unbelief & the
trials & the temptations & all that we have had to go through,
He got out a people who are the cream of the crop! The upper class! I
know that modern sociologists don't like that term, but God's got us
& we are the upper class, the cream of the crop, the storm
troopers! We don't like that term either, do we?
115. WE ARE THE ELITE
& WE WILL BE ABLE TO WALK THE GOLDEN STREETS OF THAT GOLDEN CITY
WHEN NOBODY ELSE IS ALLOWED IN! Because you are privileged characters,
a privileged class who are allowed to go through a harder life under
more difficult conditions now & greater trials & temptations
& tribulations & survive, by faith, like the 11th Chapter of
Hebrews!--Though having not seen, yet having believed!
116. SO YOU ARE GOING TO
BE THE UPPER CRUST, THE UPPER CLASS OF THE WORLD TO COME! First of all
in the Millennium you're going to rule it & run it & reign it,
& then in the New Heaven & the New Earth, you are going to be
the kings & princes & queens & high priests & rulers of
that Earth also--& the only ones allowed in the Holy City, the
Heavenly City of God!
117. "KINGS OF THE
NATIONS OF THE EARTH SHALL BRING THEIR GLORY INTO IT!" (Rev.21:26)
They're going to pay tribute, they're going to give honour & glory
to God & to us as the elite, the rulers of the Earth! Let me tell
you, they're going to be mighty glad to even be on the outside! And
those who live through the horrible end of this age right now in the
end period & the Tribulation & the Wrath of God &
Armageddon are going to be mighty thankful they survived at all into
the Millennium! They're going to feel like privileged characters
118. BUT YOU ARE GOING
TO BE THEIR RULERS, THEIR OFFICERS OF THE LAW! You're going to be the
angels of God to them! Just as the angels are to us now, we will be
angels to them! Not much change in that, except then we will be in
complete control. Well, God & His angels are even in control now,
but He's just letting man have his way.
119. IN THE MILLENNIUM
THERE'S GOING TO BE A BIG DIFFERENCE! There will still be free will,
there will still be choice, but God will not let man have his way! He
may choose to have it, but He's going to slap him down real quick when
he does! He may choose to go his own way & try to rebel--bam!--God
swats him with a rod of iron!--Bam, whammy, zap!--Whatever you want to
call it--& he gets it quick!
120. NOWADAYS MAN GETS
AWAY WITH MURDER & A HELL OF A LOT MORE, but he's not going to get
away with anything then. There's going to be instant judgement! Instant
enforcement! Force! Iron-rod enforcement of the Law of God & the
Government of God, & nobody's going to get away with anything, even
those that try!--And they will try!
121. NOW WOULDN'T YOU
SAY THAT THE PEOPLE WILL BELIEVE WHO SEE THAT KIND OF GOVERNMENT &
THAT KIND OF VISIBLE, TANGIBLE, AUDIBLE MANIFESTATION OF THE EXISTENCE
OF GOD & His Government on Earth, the Kingdom of God on Earth &
His governors--you & me--& His World restored, Curse lifted,
people living hundreds of years, no enmity between the animals, or men
& the animals any longer, all these miraculous, seemingly
122. ACTUALLY IT'LL BE
NORMAL, THE WAY GOD INTENDED FOR IT TO BE TO BEGIN WITH & MADE
THINGS TO BEGIN WITH! It's actually just a restoration of the norm!
We're living in the abnormal now & the subnormal, out of the norm!
The World is in chaos, the World is in confusion! How can you have
normal psychology today? The norm today is idiocy, insanity! (Car
screeches outside!) The Devil's mad even outside! If he can't get in,
he'll do what he can outside to try to distract you, isn't that
something? He gets the dogs to barkin' or gets that damn lizard to
kissin' or gets the neighbours to screamin' or something! But don't let
him distract you!
123. THIS IS NOT A
NORMAL WORLD! THIS IS NOT THE WAY GOD MADE IT! Man has messed it up,
the Devil has messed it up, his demons have messed it up, the Curse has
messed it up! The World is in a mess today, anybody can see that! Just
look around! It's not normal! But this is all man can see & all he
knows, so he thinks this is normal! And he thinks that all the insanity
of man today is normal psychology & only the most extreme cases are
124. I DON'T KNOW WHAT
YOU STUDIED IN SCHOOL, BUT I TOOK A CRAZY COURSE CALLED "ABNORMAL
PSYCHOLOGY," with a whole big thick book about all the nuts &
idiots & kinds of insanity that there are in the World! It made me
sick! I think I only read a few chapters of the book & I never got
any further than that! I didn't even want to dwell on all that horrible
stuff & the horrors & examples &, ugh, it's enough to make
you puke!--All the different kinds of insanity there is in the World
& its manifestations! I mean, you've gotta be insane to even want
to study it!
125. GOD'S WORD SAYS,
"WHATSOEVER THINGS ARE GOOD, OF GOOD REPORT, ETC., THINK ON THESE
THINGS, THINK ON THE GOOD THINGS!" (Ph.4:8) Boy, it was so depressing
reading that book I had to quit, it was horrible! What man calls
abnormal psychology about the idiots, etc., that's the worst of all,
but even what he calls normal is not normal! It's not a normal World,
man is not normal today, he's abnormal, subnormal! They call us
eccentric, meaning we're off the center! They're the ones that are
eccentric, they're off the Center!
126. WE'RE ON THE
CENTER, WE'RE CONCENTRATED ON JESUS CHRIST, THE CENTER OF ALL THINGS!
Keep your mind stayed on the Lord & He'll keep you in perfect
peace. (Is.26:3) We're the only ones who are normal! Ha! Ha! Ha! You
didn't laugh! Compared to the rest of the World, that really gets a
good laugh! And they laugh at us!: "You normal? What are you talking
about? You're the craziest people on Earth! You're really crazy! You
say you can just believe & be saved, you can just believe & be
healed, you can just go ahead & live for the Lord & He'll take
care of you & all those crazy things!"
127. YOUR PARENTS
THOUGHT YOU WERE CRAZY & SOME TRIED TO KIDNAP YOU & ALL KINDS
OF THINGS! They thought you'd lost your mind, thought you'd gone
insane! You're the one that is sane, they're the ones that are crazy!
They're the ones insane! We're the only ones who are sane: Christians
who love Jesus & love the Lord & believe in God & His Power
& His Bible & His Word & His Kingdom! It's already here, in
us, in our hearts, & will be everywhere in the Millennium &
control everybody whether they like it or not! We're the normal ones,
but to the rest of the World we're religious fanatics, Jesus freaks,
abnormal, subnormal, crazy, nuts!
128. BUT BECAUSE THEIR
SUBNORMALITY & ABNORMALITIES ARE SO COMMON & WIDESPREAD IN THE
VAST MAJORITY & MOST OF THE PEOPLE, THEY THINK THEY'RE THE NORMAL
ONES! Like the old lady said: "Oh look, everybody's out of step but my
Johnny!" Well, that's the fact, that's the truth! We're the ones that
are in step, they're the ones who are out of step! Like the old Quaker
said: "Sometimes I think everybody in the World is crazy but me &
thee, & sometimes I wonder about thee!" Or like the guy said in the
insane asylum: "He thinks he's Napoleon! But how could he be Napoleon
when I'm Napoleon!"
129. IN THE MILLENNIUM
THERE IS GOING TO BE MORE VISIBLE, AUDIBLE, TANGIBLE EVIDENCE! Do you
guys know what I'm talking about, using these big words? Visible means
you can see it! Audible means you can hear it! Tangible means you can
feel it! They are going to see, hear & feel the presence of God
& His Kingdom & His people & His Power & His
Government, as well as His perfect Creation without the Curse!--And
130. EVEN THE NATURAL
NORMAL PEOPLE WILL BE ALLOWED TO LIVE A LONG TIME because of the
lifting of the Curse. Death won't come so soon & they'll go back to
living hundreds of years like they did before the Flood. Anybody who
dies at 100 is going to be considered just a child!
131. ANOTHER RESULT OF
THE CURSE WAS MULTIPLIED CONCEPTION & PAIN IN CHILDBIRTH. (Ge.3:16)
I'm happy to say, girls, your job of childcare & prenatal care
& pregnant women, etc., will be greatly reduced during the
Millennium, because when people don't die as fast, they don't have to
be born as fast! When people keep on living, they don't have to have so
many births to replace the population! Are you disappointed?--I'm
132. --NOT THAT THEY'RE
GOING TO REDUCE THE AMOUNT OF SEX, Hope, & some of you sex addicts
like me! You may just find that you're more interested & busier
with other things. You can still have sex if you want it & need it,
but you may find you're going to need other things more. You're going
to be real busy for one thing, & you're almost too busy to have sex
133. WELL ANYWAY, SINCE
PEOPLE WON'T BE DYING AS OFTEN & AS MANY, THERE WON'T BE THE
NECESSITY OF SO MANY BIRTHS. Children will be more rare, there will not
be the multiplied conception which was a result of the Curse on the
Fall of man. Why? "You say it was a curse? I thought you said having
children was a blessing?" It is to us, yes, but so many was a result of
the Fall because men were going to die faster of sin. In fact, they
weren't going to die at all, if they had eaten of the Tree of Life they
would have lived forever!
134. BECAUSE THEY
SINNED, THEY BEGAN TO DIE, & THE MORE THEY SINNED THE FASTER THEY
DIED, so the more God had to produce babies to take their place so that
His plan wouldn't be totally defeated by having the whole thing die!
That's why the Devil hates babies, hates children, hates conception,
hates childbirth, hates pregnant women, because if he could stop all
that, man would die out completely!
135. BUT IN THAT DAY
PEOPLE WILL LIVE LONGER! IT WON'T BE NECESSARY FOR THE LORD TO CREATE
SO MANY NEW BABIES TO TAKE THEIR PLACE, BECAUSE THEY WON'T DIE THAT
FAST. Hope you're not disappointed! (Sara: I never thought about having
a child in the Millennium!) Honey, people will be natural & normal,
living like they do today! They'll still have to work for a living. But
not us! We'll have to work too, in a way, but it'll be nice work if you
can get it!
136. THEY WILL STILL
HAVE TO HAVE FOOD TO EAT, farms & various natural forms of
transportation--whatever doesn't hurt nor kill nor destroy--the way God
made things originally. Back to the primitive forms of transportation
& farming & agricultural economy & peaceful economy &
His original system, etc.
137. SO THERE WILL BE
SOME BIG CHANGES, BIG DIFFERENCES, but there will be normal people
there. They're going to seem a little abnormal to the people of today,
perhaps, because they will live & last longer & won't have as
many children & they'll be a lot better people. People are going to
be able to see the visible Kingdom of God on Earth!
138. NOW THE POINT THAT
I'M TRYING TO BRING OUT--having gone clear around not merely
Robinhood's barn & back, but around the Earth & the Bible &
the Universe & back to the point again--is that honestly now, I'm
going to ask you, Jury, what do you think? Will it be more easy then to
believe than it is now?--Of course! I mean, almost anybody can believe
having seen! Jesus said so! He said, "Thomas, God bless you for
believing because you saw, but more blessed are those who having not
seen, yet have believed!" (Jn.20:29)
139. YOU TODAY ARE MORE
BLESSED THAN THEY OF THE MILLENNIUM! You are more blessed because,
though having not seen, you have believed. But God is going to, in a
sense, do for the World in the Millennium what He did for Thomas. The
people today say: "Show me!" OK, He's gonna show'm! And those who were
honest about it & really meant it: "Lord, if you'll show me, I'll
believe it"--will believe! I believe it! I believe that the vast
majority of the people then will believe. It says, "No man shall say
unto his neighbour, Know the Lord, for all shall know Me!" (Jer.31:34)
140. I'LL TELL YOU RIGHT
NOW, EVERYBODY'S GOING TO BELIEVE IN GOD! There's not a soul that's not
going to believe that Jesus Christ is the King of kings & Ruler of
the Earth! That doesn't mean they're going to be saved--not if their
hearts are still wicked & rebellious & iniquitous &
disobedient--& there will be bad people who will have to be
punished! The Scripture's very clear about it!
141. THERE'S GONNA BE A
TOUGH STRONG IRON-CLAD GOVERNMENT TO RULE THE WORLD & TO MAKE
PEOPLE OBEY who don't want to obey, & there will still be people
who don't want to obey, even though having seen & heard & felt
& had every proof & every evidence & every reason to
believe! They will believe, all right, but there will be a lot who
won't receive it, as the Muslims say, will not be in submission, will
not submit to the Kingdom of God. (Muslim means "he who submits"!)
142. BUT I AM CONVINCED
THAT MOST OF THE PEOPLE WILL NOT ONLY BELIEVE WHEN THEY SEE, BUT WILL
RECEIVE & OBEY & SUBMIT! That's why it's going to be like
Heaven on Earth, thank God, because the vast majority of the people
will receive it & will yield to the Kingdom of God & your
authority, & that little dream I had is one of the manifestations
of it! ("Millennial Hospitality!" No.1440)
143. IT WASN'T THAT THAT
TOWN COUNCIL WAS ALL THAT JUBILANT ABOUT OUR AUTHORITY, BUT THEY WERE
RESPECTFUL, SUBMISSIVE & THEY RECEIVED IT. They had to believe it,
there I was!--Ha! And there you'll be! They can't help but believe!
Everybody will believe then, but it's not necessarily going to save'm!
There will be some form of salvation, but it may not get them into the
Holy City--that day may be gone forever & passed, as far as I can
144. MAYBE I'M WRONG,
MAYBE SOME PEOPLE WILL BE SAVED IN THE MILLENNIUM WHO WILL GET INTO THE
HOLY CITY TOO IF THEY BELIEVE IN JESUS THEN! Maybe they'll receive Him
then as their personal Saviour & have faith in His blood & then
believe, even as we do today, because they have seen! But they're not
going to be as blessed as us! Maybe they'll still get in, but down in
the basement somewhere or the lower levels. You are going to be more
blessed, because you, though having not seen, yet have believed!
145. THOSE PEOPLE THEN
WHO BELIEVE BECAUSE THEY HAVE SEEN, THEY'LL BE BLESSED, AS THE LORD
SAID TO THOMAS: "BLESSED ARE YE!" They'll be blessed to even get into
the Millennium! They'll be blessed to see the visible personal rule
& reign of Jesus Christ & His Government of God under us in
that day! They'll be blessed! It's just plain common sense! Don't you
think the vast majority, having seen, will believe? And don't you think
that when they then believe by seeing, that most of them will probably
receive & submit? They'd be crazy not too! But there will be some
people that crazy who will jump at the first chance to follow the Devil
again as soon as he shows his ugly face! (Rev.20:7-9)
146. BUT I BELIEVE THAT
THE MILLENNIUM IS, IN A SENSE, A SECOND CHANCE--at least for those whom
God chooses to spare to live into the Millennium. And I think then
because they have seen, heard & felt the Kingdom of God in the very
visible personal rule & reign of Jesus & His Government--us--on
Earth, then certainly everybody will believe. Everybody will believe!
They'll know because they can see it!
147. THERE WON'T BE ANY
UNBELIEVERS THEN, BUT THERE WILL BE SOME UNRECEIVERS, those who won't
yield & will try to disobey & are still stubborn &
disobedient & rebellious & iniquitous & wicked at heart
& still defiant & don't want to obey God--still! Think of
it!--Including the Devil & all his angels & the anti-God forces
at the End! The Lord may allow some of them to survive just to show us
& the World that some are incorrigible!
148. YOU SAY, "WELL,
WHAT FOR?" Well, if anything, I think it's going to give the people who
deserve it, a chance to see & to believe! Jesus went down &
preached to the spirits in prison--He must have felt like they deserved
a chance. (Mt.12:40; 1Pe.3:19, 4:6) How much more so the people who
managed to survive into the Millennium! They deserve their chance too!
149. WHAT KIND OF A
CHANCE YOU WANT TO CLASSIFY IT AS IN THEOLOGICAL TERMS, I DON'T KNOW.
Most theologians don't believe this. Christian theologians, inheriting
their largely Roman Catholic philosophy & theology, separate Heaven
& Hell as far as the stars are from the Earth, & maybe a lot
further! In fact, even the Catholics believe more in something in
between such as Limbo & Purgatory & a few other things which
even the Protestants don't believe at all!
150. THERE'S NOBODY AS
HARD-HEADED & AS DIAMETRICALLY OPPOSED TO ANYTHING IN BETWEEN
HEAVEN & HELL AS THE PROTESTANTS! The conservative so-called
Evangelical & Fundamentalist religionists, they are the greatest
opponents of the Catholic theories of Limbo & Purgatory--which I am
more inclined to believe than the Protestants!
151. I THINK THE
CATHOLICS ARE CLOSER TO THE TRUTH THERE THAN THE PROTESTANTS! At least
they teach that there's some time when you have a chance to get out of
Purgatory, once you're purged, & someplace to go for the people who
never had a chance, like Limbo, etc. How many of you were ex-Catholics?
And how many of you ever heard of those places, Purgatory, Limbo, etc.?
That's someplace kind of in between Heaven & Hell. Even the
Catholics have got better sense than the Protestants on that!
152. BUT YOU CAN'T FIND
AN EVANGELICAL THAT BELIEVES IN ANYTHING ELSE, TO THEM IT'S EITHER
HEAVEN OR HELL, THAT'S IT! Period! "When you go to Hell, Brother,
that's it!" Did you read those comics that Chick wrote?--They say you
go to Hell forever & you're in the torment & the flames of Hell
forever! No matter whether you're the best man on Earth, if you didn't
believe in Jesus, to Hell you go & in Hell you stay & that's
it! You get the same evil punishment with the Devil & all his
153. WHAT KIND OF A GOD
WOULD DO A TRICK LIKE THAT? I can't believe that kind of thing!
Although that's what I was taught all my life, thank God I finally
awakened to the fact & the Scripture & the reality & the
reason & the logic & the plain common sense that our God is not
that kind of a monster!--That there are other stages & grades &
levels in between, even Dante's Inferno shows that, & I can give you lot of other examples.
154. BUT THE POINT IS, IN
THE MILLENNIUM THEY ARE GOING TO HAVE SOME CHANCE TO BELIEVE, RECEIVE
& OBEY, & God is going to in some way save them then, if not
for the Heavenly City, at least from Hell! Maybe they'll get into the
basement! They're not as blessed as we are. (Family: Will they ever
have the blessing of full supernatural bodies?) Oh yes, everybody has
that eventually. Even the wicked who are raised from the dead will have
supernatural bodies, otherwise they wouldn't be immortal & they
wouldn't last forever! Even if they had to go to Hell forever, they'd
have to have supernatural bodies!
155. (FAMILY: ONE REASON
IT MIGHT BE EASIER FOR THEM TO BELIEVE IN THE MILLENNIUM is because the
Devil's bound, so all of his doubts aren't going around.) Yes, all of
his demons won't be working on your mind & all the rest of that
156. THAT'S A VERY GOOD
QUESTION THOUGH, SON. It may seem obvious to me, but it may not seem so
obvious to everybody else. That although, like you say, they missed the
First Resurrection, if they should die during the Millennium or be
destroyed in the fire which destroys the World at the end, there's only
one more resurrection & that's the one at the White Throne
Judgement. But it says every man will then be judged according to his
157. THERE WILL BE A
JUDGEMENT THERE! Well, if everybody's going to Hell, what the Hell's
the Judgement for? If everybody that's already going to be saved has
already gone to Heaven & is already saved, what's this Judgement at
the Great White Throne Judgement of God?--Of the Unsaved who were never
resurrected to begin with, & all those who were destroyed in the
fire when the Earth & atmosphere is burned up! What's this Second
Resurrection for? What's this Great White Throne Judgement for in the
20th Chapter of Revelation? Why does there have to be any Judgement at
all? Why doesn't God just toss them all into Hell? Huh?
158. WELL, YOU READ THAT
CHAPTER CAREFULLY! I was shocked the other day! I read that a few
months ago, I think I was in South Africa or somewhere. You just assume
& you've just got it pounded into your head so many years by
preachers & teachers, it's a preconceived prejudice that everybody
that's raised then are all tossed right straight into Hell! But that is
not what it says, it doesn't say they are all tossed into Hell at the
end of the 20th Chapter! That's just what the preachers taught you.
What does it say? (Family: "And whosoever was not found written in the
Book of Life...") (Rev.20:15)
159. WHY DID THEY HAVE
TO HAVE A BOOK OPEN TO FIND WHO WAS WRITTEN THERE & NOT WRITTEN
THERE? Huh? Why did there have to be any Judgement at all unless there
was some difference between those people who are resurrected for the
Great White Throne Judgement when the Book of Life is opened? If none
of them are written in there & it's a bare blank book, why bother?
160. THE ATTITUDE OF THE
AVERAGE CHRISTIAN IS: "You might as well just toss the whole caboodle
into Hell & let it go at that! Nobody's saved! All the saved are
already resurrected, met with Jesus, gone to Heaven--& to Hell with
the rest of them!" Just like the Scribes & the Pharisees: "Thank
God we're not as these other people, let'm go to Hell!" No wonder the
Pharisaical churchy don't evangelise the World, they don't care!
161. IT SAYS DEFINITELY
THERE'S GOING TO BE A BOOK OF LIFE THERE & they're going to read
out, apparently, those who are written there & not those who
aren't! And those that are not found in the Book, they're the ones that
are going to be tossed into Hell, not all of them! You say, "Okay then,
who's not found in the Book?" Well, obviously the Wicked & those
that rejected & wouldn't believe & wouldn't receive &
rebelled, & probably all those people who at the end of the
Millennium turn against the Camp of the Saints & the people of
God--including maybe lots of people who were saved during the
Millennium--when the Devil tries to pull his big revolt!--Also all
those who accepted the Mark of the Beast in the Tribulation!
162. THOSE PEOPLE
DESERVE HELL! I'd say they really deserve the flames & the Fiery
Lake! After a thousand years of the personal visible loving reign of
Jesus Christ & His Saints on the Earth & the manifestation of
God on every hand, they still rebel against God, they deserve to go to
Hell! I'd say if anybody ever deserved it, they deserve to go to Hell
more than Hitler! Right?
163. SO THE MILLENNIUM
IS GOING TO BE ANOTHER REFINING TIME, a purifying, a purgatory in a
sense, another chance to believe & receive & submit & obey!
The others, even if they live to the end of the Millennium, are going
to be destroyed in the fire which devours the Earth! They take part in
the Second Resurrection, they have to face the Great White Throne
Judgement & they have to be checked on from the great Book of Life!
164. AND OBVIOUSLY SOME
WERE NOT THERE, BECAUSE THEY REBELLED AGAINST GOD EVEN IN THE
MILLENNIUM, as well as many in ages past who rebelled against God. All
those who were in open rebellion against God & knew better, &
all those that deserve Hell, are going to get Hell! They're going to
deserve it! But obviously there are going to be a lot of people who
don't, who are found written in the Book of Life! HAL! TYJ! GB'M!
165. BUT THE WAY THE
EVANGELICALS & THE FUNDAMENTALISTS TEACH & THE WAY WE WERE
TAUGHT WAS: "Listen buddy, you missed the Rapture, you missed the
Second Coming!--Go to Hell!" Well, there are some Fundamentalists who
believe that a few people are going to get saved during the
Tribulation. They particularly teach that the Jews are all going to get
saved in the Tribulation! They won't get saved now, but during the
Tribulation they get saved.
166. IN FACT, WE SAW A
PREACHER ON TELEVISION ONCE WHO SAID, "We believers of today are not
the Bride of Christ, we're the army of God!" He never came straight out
& said it, but he implied that according to his doctrine, the Jews
who are going to be saved during the Tribulation are going to be the
special Bride of Christ!--Ha! He doesn't know his Bible!
167. IT'S THAT SAME OLD GOD-DAMNED
PREJUDICED PRO-JEWISH DOCTRINE that somehow or another the Jews are
just a little bit better than all the Goys! Somehow or another we saved
Jews are just a little bit better than the saved Gentiles. And somehow
or another in the very end God's still going to save the Jews somehow
& they're still going to get a little bit better deal than the
Gentiles! The Jews've had that drummed into them for thousands of
years, that they're better than other people: "Thank God I'm not like
168. WELL I THANK GOD I'M NOT LIKE TOSE GOD-DAMNED UNBELIEVING JEWS!
I thank God I'm like Jews like you who believe, & that makes you
just about the smartest people on Earth, as well as the most
normal!--Ha! You're the only ones who are sane, & the smartest, you
Jews that have received your Messiah, thank God, & claimed Jesus as
your King--& He is!
169. SO THAT'S A GOOD
POINT, YOU SAY, "WELL, WHAT'S GOING TO HAPPEN TO THESE PEOPLE THAT DIE
IN THE MILLENNIUM?" They're going to be raised in that Second
Resurrection in the 20th Chapter, plain as day, & they're going to
have to face the Great White Judgement Throne of God! Not the Judgement
Seat of Christ which you & I will face at the Marriage Supper of
the Lamb when the prizes & rewards, etc., are passed out--&
also maybe some of the shame & the reproach & the contempt! I'd
almost rather not be there than an ashamed contemptible failure!
170. NO, LORD FORGIVE
ME, I'D STILL BE THANKFUL TO BE THERE, EVEN IF I WAS HELD IN SHAME
& CONTEMPT! Because you'll still be thankful that you are saved!
PTL? But some will be raised to everlasting shame & contempt in
that First Resurrection. That is the First Resurrection, Beloved, there
in the 12th Chapter of Daniel, of the Saved, "but some to everlasting
shame & contempt!"
171. WELL, FOR US WHO
WERE RAISED IN CHURCH, IT'S NOT HARD TO FIGURE OUT WHAT CHRISTIANS
THOSE SAVED ARE WHO ARE GOING TO BE HELD IN EVERLASTING SHAME &
CONTEMPT! We know a lot of'm personally! I'm ashamed of them now! They
deserve your contempt now for their failure & their refusal to
support God's work & evangelise the World & their selfish
living! You can hardly tell the difference between them & any other
Worldling! Remaining back in the States in churches & jobs, they
just live like everybody else!--(Unless they really support
missionaries!) The only difference is they claim to be Christians &
Church members & they go to Church on Sunday!
172. MAYBE THEY'RE A
LITTLE BIT BETTER AND DON'T LIE, CHEAT & STEAL QUITE AS
MUCH--although according to some of the World, you'd think Christians
& Church people are even worse! I've heard many of them say: "Well,
I wouldn't trust that deacon or that head of the Board as much as I'd
trust myself & some of the Worldly businessmen I know! Those guys
running that church down there are crookeder than some of the local
businessmen!"--And it's, sad to say, too often true!
173. BUT THE POINT IS,
THERE WILL THEN BE A FAIR JUDGEMENT OF GOD! Who's going to be at the
White Throne Judgement? Not you who are saved during this dispensation
of grace before the coming of Jesus, not you who are resurrected &
caught up in the Rapture when Jesus comes. We are the elite, we're that
special class who are going to have access to the Holy City! Maybe some
of those others might get in down below in the basement, I dunno.
174. BUT THE PEOPLE WHO
ARE GOING TO BE JUDGED AT THE WHITE THRONE JUDGEMENT OF GOD IN THE 20TH
CHAPTER ARE GOING TO BE ALL THE PEOPLE WHO WERE NOT PREVIOUSLY SAVED,
even the people who rebel during the Millennium & are killed &
executed, & finally all the people who even survive the Millennium
to the end & are burned up at the end in that final destruction of
the enemies of God. He doesn't go into a great deal of detail, & He
doesn't have to! Why do we need to know that far in the future? I don't
need to know, I'm just plain curious, that's all!--Ha!
175. AND MAYBE YOU SAY
IT'S JUST MY THEORY, BUT IT SOUNDS TO ME LIKE THERE'S QUITE A
CONSIDERABLE CAMP OF THE SAINTS THERE that they try to surround &
defeat at the end of the Millennium. (Re.20:9) Who are these Saints? Do
you mean we who are like the angels of God are holed up in some kind of
a fortress & surrounded by the Devil & his forces? Huh? We
could go pshhhhht & they'd be gone! Or we could disappear or fly
176. IT SOUNDS TO ME
LIKE IT'S GOING TO BE THE NATURAL NORMAL PHYSICAL HUMAN BEINGS WHO ARE
SAVED DURING THE MILLENNIUM!--Those who have obeyed & followed God
& Christ & refused to join the rebellion, who are going to be
surrounded by this final rebellion! And it's then going to be those
wicked forces God's going to wipe out by fire & somehow save the
others. I can't prove it, but that's what it sounds like. You read it!
177. WELL, THE WAY THE
PREACHERS TELL YOU, YOU'D THINK THE CAMP OF THE SAINTS WERE THE
RESURRECTED GLORIFIED-BODIED ANGELIC SAVED PEOPLE, Christians, who were
resurrected & raptured & have been living & ruling &
reigning with Christ with supernatural power & supernatural bodies,
but somehow the Devil surrounded us & got us all holed up in
someplace called the Camp of the Saints & we're on the run, we're
on the defensive! That's what it sounds like, the way they teach it!
That's more or less what you're taught, that somehow or another,
despite the whole Millennium, Satan's forces finally get out of control
& overcome the Government of God & overrun the Kingdom &
have the Saints on the run! I don't believe it!
178. IF THERE'S ANYBODY
THEY MIGHT HAVE ON THE RUN, IT MIGHT BE THE PEOPLE WHO HAVE RECEIVED
& SUBMITTED & BEEN SAVED or won over or whatever you want to
call it, which sounds like there are going to be quite a lot in
rebellion against those. But the Lord's going to allow it. He could
have stopped them by force, but how do we know it? He's says He's going
to allow Satan out, He's going to set the Devil loose & let him go
out to deceive the nations again so that those who will be deceived
& who are willing to be deceived--in other words, they're still
just as wicked in their hearts & minds as ever--are going to be
179. IT'S THE LAST TEST
FOR MANKIND ON EARTH, & they who are then deceived by the Devil in
that final test will follow the Devil & they will try to attack the
Kingdom of God! But no sweat, no problem, phsssst!--Fire just wipes'm
out & the whole Earth is burned up, & whoever's saved is saved
& whoever isn't isn't! And then all the wicked of all ages,
including them, will be resurrected for the Great White Throne
Judgement & rewarded according to their works. Obviously they're
going to pull the Book of Life on them, & those not found in the
Book of Life are going to be cast into the Lake of Fire!
180. IF THERE'S NOBODY
FOUND IN THE BOOK OF LIFE & ALL THE PAGES ARE BLANK, WHY HAVE IT?
Why have a Judgement? Why have a Book of Life? Why have them stand
there for judgement at all if there's not going to be a difference
between the ones who are written in the book & the ones who aren't?
Even though they weren't saved like us, at least they received &
obeyed during the Millennium, & maybe a lot of people in ages gone
by, who though not worthy of our kind of salvation & not having
been saved like we are, nevertheless they are allowed life on the New
Earth instead of a living death in Hell & the Lake of Fire!
181. NOW TO ME, THAT IS
A MUCH MORE SATISFACTORY EXPLANATION & interpretation than the
horrible monstrous Evangelical Fundamentalist pharisaical idea--Maria
here who went through all those churches like I did is nodding her
head--that only the Christians who were saints, & angelic saints at
that, are going to get to Heaven, & all the rest of these
God-damned sinners: "Go to Hell! We don't give a damn! Burn there
forever as far as we're concerned!"
182. THAT'S THE ATTITUDE
OF THE CHURCH & THE CHRISTIANS: "So what? We're saved! Too bad
about this guy, this publican, this sinner. Thank God I'm not like him!
I'm saved, I'm going to Heaven, he can go to Hell as far as I'm
concerned!" That's their attitude!--And why they're not missionaries!
183. THAT'S WHY THEY'RE
NOT OUT EVANGELISING THE WORLD LIKE WE ARE! They don't give a damn,
they don't care, they've found their fire escape, they're saved &
they selfishly keep it to themselves! They almost resent a newcomer in
Church! They certainly resent some stumblebum that stumbles in or some
ungodly sinner! They want to keep it all just thou, thee, me & no
184. I HAVE SEEN IT,
YOU'VE SEEN IT, HOW EXCLUSIVE THEY CONSIDER THEMSELVES, how they even
resent new people unless they're very nice people, nicely dressed, have
lots of money, help support the church, & are already Christians.
Well, they might even tolerate them if they're not saved, providing
they have plenty of money & look nice & are leading businessmen
or the Mayor & support the church. They'll pray real hard that they
will be saved, of course, so they can go to Heaven like them, but
anyhow, it's nice to have them there to help the offering.
185. THEY COULDN'T CARE
LESS FOR THE LOST!--Especially these natives out here in the East &
the South & the Hottentots & the savages & the Aborigines
& all the rest of the heathen & the pagan, they couldn't care
less for'm! It's obvious they couldn't care less, they're not doing
anything! Where are they? Thank God there're a few of them! God bless
the folks that do have a few TV programs & a few churches, there
are some Christians who care. But compared to the vast majority of the
Church, they're precious few!
186. LET'S SAY THERE ARE
A FEW THOUSAND CHURCHES THAT CARE & send missionaries & support
missionary works & Christian television shows & whatnot, but
there are literally hundreds of millions who couldn't care less &
don't give a damn, & the rest of the World can go to Hell as far as
they're concerned!--Christians! Church members! Hundreds of millions of
them according to their own count, who don't care for lost souls!
187. HOW DO WE KNOW THEY
DON'T CARE?--Where are they? What are they doing? You've seen them. How
many of you ever went to church? Then you've seen all those people who
don't care! There might have been two or three people in the whole
church who were really concerned about missions & missionaries
& trying to save the lost way out on some foreign mission field
halfway around the World. The others take a little offering maybe once
a year for them.
188. THEY DON'T CARE!
THEY REALLY DON'T CARE! Once in a great while they get a little bit
conscience-stricken & they might think about it, & well, the
March of Dimes comes by & they put a dime in the box for the poor
cripples, or they'll buy a stamp for tuberculosis or a seal for Boy's
Town--all pretty well-supported already by the millions & local
charities in the U.S. where everybody's already rich & even the
poorest orphan is rich by comparison!
189. BUT HOW MUCH DO
THEY GIVE TO REAL MISSIONS? Well, I've told you the stats on it: Of the
major denominations of the United States, out of every dollar
contributed to the churches for their support, only 5 cents goes to
missions! Where does the other 95% go?--Most of it to buildings! Next,
preachers' salaries! Next, maintenance & paying the bills for
pretty programs & pipe organs & furniture! Think of it! 95
cents to that, & only 5 cents for the missionary!
190. THAT PROVES THEY
DON'T GIVE A DAMN, THEY DON'T CARE! "Let the World go to Hell, we don't
give a damn, we don't care! They can go to Hell & burn in Hell
forever as far as we're concerned, we are saved! Behold, we indeed are
the people & we're saved, so why should we worry about the rest of
191. LET ME TELL YOU,
ONE OF THESE DAYS THEY'RE GOING TO FACE GOD, & even if they're
saved--which I doubt of some of them--they're going to worry then! I
sometimes wonder how some of those people can even be saved, because
they don't act like it, they certainly don't respond like it! I mean,
in spite of all Maria's done for the Lord & now she's out here as a
missionary & saving the World, her parents still don't believe in
her & what she's doing! Think of it!
192. WHAT DO YOU THINK
THEY'RE GOING TO FEEL LIKE WHEN THEY FACE JESUS CHRIST? Even if they
make it to the Marriage Supper of the Lamb in the Holy City, how are
they going to feel when they face us & face Him there? What are
they going to feel like? There are two words that the Lord Himself uses
in the Scripture: Shame--they're going to be ashamed of themselves
& we're going to be ashamed of them--& they are going to be
held in contempt! They're going to have contempt for themselves, &
we are going to have contempt for them, pity them if anything!
193. THINK OF HOW MANY
MILLIONS OF CHRISTIANS & CHURCH PEOPLE ARE GOING TO BE IN THAT
CATEGORY! I'd venture to say, & I'm sorry to say, almost the vast
majority of those hundreds of millions of supposed Christians, supposed
saved, supposed Church members are probably going to be held in shame
& contempt! No wonder the base of the Pyramid is so much bigger
than the pinnacle, if they're going to be on various levels according
to their accomplishments for the Lord & their reward & their
works! The basement's going to have to hold more than anything! Are you
getting the point?
194. NO WONDER THERE ARE
GOING TO BE SO FEW AT THE TOP WHO REALLY PAID THE PRICE &
SACRIFICED & GAVE THEIR ALL & GAVE THEIR LIVES! No wonder the
base is so much bigger than the pinnacle! I never thought about that
before. I always talked about how there were going to be an awful lot
down in the basement shining shoes! Well, it must be that on those 12
levels there are differences, & the vast majority are going to be
down below, ashamed & in contempt! There are going to be very few
to whom the Lord is going to say: "Well done, thou good & faithful
servant; enter thou into the joy of thy Lord!" (Mt.25:23) What do you
195. OF ALL THE
CHRISTIANS THAT YOU CAN BY THE WILDEST STRETCH OF YOUR IMAGINATION
POSSIBLY HOPE ARE SAVED, of all the Church people you remember &
you know & you saw in church--whatever denomination or religion it
may have been, Catholic, Protestant, Christians, whatever--how many of
them do you think are going to be at the top of the Lord's list for
sacrificial service & martyrdom & evangelism & missionary
work? Most churches are doing well if they're supporting one missionary
on the field!--One representative of the whole congregation doing the
job that God called them all to do! And I've known many churches that
don't even do that much!
196. NO WONDER THE
BASEMENT'S GOTTA BE SO BIG! No wonder the base of that Pyramid's gotta
be so big! If they're going to get in at all, if there are going to be
that many saved at all, there are sure going to have to be an awful
shameful lot of them in the basement! (Family: 2-1/4 million square
miles!) Yes, very good! Ha! These mathematician geometricians are going
to figure that out!--And it gets fewer & fewer & holds less
& less on each of the 12 levels that you go up!
197. NOT EVEN I WAS AT
THE TOP! Maybe you think I deserve to be at the top. Well, on my trip
to Space City I didn't get there. There was something going on at the
top, there was really something going on, but I didn't get to go there,
at least not on that trip. Maybe I will yet, I don't know! Moses didn't
even get into the Promised Land!
198. SO I MAY NOT BE SO
GOOD & SUPERIOR AS YOU THINK I AM, I MAY NOT DESERVE THAT! After
all, I haven't yet really died for my faith, I haven't been tortured, I
haven't been persecuted much, I haven't yet been martyred! Well, I have
suffered a few things, but I'm still in pretty good shape & I'm not
chopped up in little pieces or anything or hanging on a cross. I've
never been to prison for Jesus or anything else, thank God, & I
hope I never will! Maybe that's why I won't make the top, because I
hope I don't have to suffer all that!
199. I THINK SOME PEOPLE
WANT TO BE MARTYRS! Some people would really like to die for their
faith. I must say, I must be a coward! But when the showdown comes,
maybe I will! You never know what you're going to do until it happens.
Power for the hour, grace for the pace! If I don't have dying grace
yet, it's because I'm not dying yet!
200. WHO KNOWS? I'M
PRETTY MUCH OF A FIGHTER, I'LL PROBABLY FIGHT TO THE DEATH, EVEN IF
THEY TRY TO KILL ME!--I'll probably try to kill them first! Maybe
that's one of my problems, I'm a little bit too much like King David, I
want to slaughter my enemies! I don't have too much love for them! I'm
sorry, I haven't got that kind of grace, at least I haven't got it yet,
maybe I will have sometime.
201. I MAY, LIKE JESUS,
BE ABLE TO SAY TO THE ROMAN SOLDIERS CASTING LOTS FOR MY GARMENTS:
"FATHER FORGIVE THEM, FOR THEY KNOW NOT WHAT THEY DO!" (Lk.23:34) But
when I see those Scribes & those Pharisees & those God-damned Jewish
hypocrites, I want to say: "God give'm Hell!" That's what I feel like
now! I don't know, maybe when the time comes I'll have a change of
heart! But they've sure given us Hell & some of our people Hell, so
they deserve it! They've killed some, tortured some, kidnapped some,
driven some crazy, it's pitiful! Talk about the Inquisition & the
tortures of the past, it's still going on today, & those enemies
202. MAYBE YOU CAN SAY
OF SOME OF YOUR MOTHERS & FATHERS: "WELL, THEY DIDN'T REALLY
UNDERSTAND WHAT THEY WERE DOING. Father forgive them, they know not
what they do." And that's possibly true with some of them. But let me
tell you, some of them pretty much know what they're doing--at least
they think they do! So that's my opinion, anyhow, of the Millennium
& you can take it or leave it--& what's coming & what it's
all about & what it's for.
203. AND TO SUM IT ALL
UP IN A NUTSHELL I MIGHT SAY, WELL, THE MILLENNIUM IS THE NEXT GRADE,
the next step, the next purgatory, in a sense, the next purging &
purifying & training, the next phase through which God is going to
put mankind & test those who haven't yet been saved, to see who
will then respond--having seen, heard & felt! And having saved all
He can out of that, then say, "Well, to Hell with the rest of them!"
Well, maybe. There will still be some of them found written in the Book
of Life in the Great White Throne Judgement of God, 20th Chapter of
204. AND THEN, AS I HAVE
OFTEN MENTIONED BEFORE, EVEN IN THE NEW HEAVEN & THE NEW EARTH
THERE WILL BE A DIFFERENCE. Not only the levels & the grades of the
Saved in the Holy City, but there will still be people outside! Think
of that! I'll tell you, they're going to be thankful to even get that
far & to dwell on a New Earth like that, Heaven on Earth! It's
going to be even more heavenly than the Millennium! Perfect! Not even
any more dirty filthy seas!
205. YOU KNOW WHAT THE
SEAS ARE, DON'T YOU?--THEY'RE THE CESSPOOLS OF THE WORLD! That's where
all the garbage & the dirt & the offal & the dung & the
filth & the putrefaction of the World finally winds up, in the sea!
That's why God's got so many garbage men there, all those dirty unclean
fish--I don't even like to call them seafood, because they're not
supposed to be eaten--who try to eat up all that garbage & dirt
& dung & filth! The seas are the cesspools of the World &
they're getting worse all the time, more putrefied by man all the time
with all his horrible pollution!
206. GOD ORIGINALLY MADE
THE SEAS TO BE ABLE TO RECYCLE EVERYTHING, purify everything & to
eat up all the corruption, but the way man is polluting the seas now,
it's impossible!--You can't recycle these plastics & the oil &
a lot of the junk that man's dumping into the oceans, there's no way!
It's getting worse all the time, so God's going to have to just burn it
all up one of these days & there will be no more sea!
207. WHY IS IT THE NEW
EARTH DOESN'T HAVE TO HAVE SEAS? Well, that's a good question for
tomorrow!--Ha! I'll leave you with a little homework, think that one
over! Why won't the New Earth have to have seas any more? Well, that
was a long session, I'm sorry. I didn't intend to do it, but I guess
the Lord wanted to put a few more finishing touches on that Millennium
208. WELL, MAYBE YOU
NEVER THOUGHT ABOUT SOME OF THESE THINGS BEFORE, but they're very
practical, reasonable, logical conclusions that you must come to if you
know God's Word & you see what He's driving at & what things
are going to have to be like then. PTL! It's just another step, another
training program, another finishing program, another refining process,
another educational program, etc.
209. LET'S HOPE THAT IN
THE NEW EARTH THERE WILL MAYBE SOMEDAY COME AN END TO THE HEALING OF
THE NATIONS WITH THE LEAVES FROM THE TREE OF LIFE, but it sounds like
we'll still have work to do there. We must be the ones that get the
leaves, because nobody else can get in but us! So we must be the ones
that take them out for the healing of the nations! (Rev.22:2)--Amen?
210. I THINK OUR KIDS DO
VERY WELL! David even sits there & listens for hours!--Think of
that! And some of them sit & listen as long as they can. But after
all, they're only children, they can't be expected to understand all of
this. I'm pleased that they're as well-behaved & quiet as they are.
They're not whinin' & cryin' & complainin' as some kids
would--if they can't stop us, they just go ahead & enjoy themselves
& play & amuse themselves & they don't try to interrupt.
Once in awhile they just bring something to our attention, but I think
they're very good, don't you?
211. I'VE NEVER SEEN
SUCH GOOD CHILDREN! They are the best children I ever saw! I hope all
of our Family children are this good! I don't know, I haven't lived in
any other Homes so I don't know! How about that Son? (Family: They're
exceptional children!) You really think they are? They're unusual? Are
they really better than most? Well, they sure are awfully good!
212. I KNOW THEY'RE SURE
A LOT BETTER THAN MINE WERE WHEN MY FIRST BATCH WERE YOUNG! Mine were
not quite as well-behaved & not always so patient & not always
such good listeners. They were pretty good, but their patience was a
little shorter & by-&-by they would run out of patience. But
it's amazing how well these children do! (To Techi:)
213. LOOK AT THIS LITTLE LOVER
THAT LOVES HER DADDY! I don't know why she loves me so much! That's
what the Lord made her for, to be my little comforter & healer
& encourager & the lifter up of my head! Her mother's so smart,
whenever I get discouraged or down, she makes sure she gets her in to
see me somehow. She knows that always will cheer me up. God's mercy!
She is the Love of God for me! PTL! God's mercy to me! God bless her! I
don't know why she should love an old man like me like she does! I love
you too! PTL!
214. SHE WAS ALWAYS LIKE
MY SECOND CHANCE, SHE'S KIND OF LIKE A SAMPLE OF THE MILLENNIUM! Maybe
that's where she came from! And Jesus gave her two little kittens named
Jack & Jill when she was there. She came out with that just like
that, boom, without a second thought: "Oh, did you know when I was in
Heaven, Jesus gave me two little kittens named Jack & Jill, &
they were so cute & cuddly!" Just a matter of fact, no melodrama.
Hallelujah! PTL! Let's pray! Sorry to have kept you so long, but I
don't seem to know any other way to do it! We've got a lot to look
forward to! PTL! Amen? TYJ!
215. (TECHI PRAYS: THANK
YOU JESUS FOR THIS TALK, & thank You Jesus Daddy came down, in
Jesus' name.) How about that? After all this long time she can still
thank the Lord for me & thank the Lord that I came down! How about
that? GBY, Honey! That's real love & patience!
216. AMEN! THANK YOU,
LORD, FOR THIS TIME TOGETHER & the patience of these precious
children, & these willing open ears of these listeners, open
hearts, willing to receive, Lord, Thy teaching & Thy instruction
& Thy Truth & to hear of the wonderful things that You have in
store for us!--That all of this training & discipline & testing
& sifting now is not in vain--it'll all be used!
217. NOT A THING THAT
WE'RE LEARNING, LORD, WILL BE WASTED, not even perhaps some of the
materials that we're using will be wasted, but will even be useful in
the future, right into the Millennium & with the normal people
we're going to have to teach then. So help us to be diligent &
faithful & do well now, so that You may say unto us when the time
comes: "Well done, thou good & faithful servant; enter thou into
the Joy of thy Lord!" (Mt.25:23) Hallelujah! TYJ! PTL! Amen!
218. BLESS & KEEP
ALL OF US, LORD, & THANK YOU FOR HOW YOU HAVE. Give us a good
night's rest, safekeeping. Bless our Family around the World, Lord,
& all these precious little children of ours. We know You will
because we know You need us & want to use us for Thy glory to love
others & win many souls to Thy Kingdom--here & now in this time
that we have, where we are!--And in the Future!
219. THANK YOU FOR THIS
OPPORTUNITY! Thank You for this privilege, Lord, of witnessing &
winning souls today & saving an elite who will be at the top of the
heap one of these days, running this World, Lord, teaching others how
to live & how to know Thy ways. We won't have to tell them to know
You Lord, they'll all know You, Lord, but we'll certainly have to teach
them Your ways & Your laws & Your Words. That's in Thy Word,
Lord. (Isa.2:3; 11:9; 26:9b; Jer.31:33-34)
220. SO WE'VE GOT A LOT
OF LEARNING TO DO, A LOT OF TEACHING TO DO, & WE'VE STILL GOT A LOT
OF LIVING TO DO, & MAYBE SOME DYING TOO, FOR YOU, JESUS! TYL! In
Jesus' name. Bless & keep us & help us to finish the job right
on into the End, Lord, World without end! TYL! As we pray together,
Lord, the prayer that You taught us to pray: (Prays the Lord's Prayer,
Ps.19:14 & "Now I Lay Me Down to Sleep.")
"GOD BE WITH YOU TILL WE MEET AGAIN!
By His counsels guide, uphold you!
In His arms securely fold you,
God be with you till we meet again!
Till we meet, till we meet,
Till we meet at Jesus' feet!"--Right here!
"Till we meet, till we meet,
God be with you till we meet again!"
"For where two or
three are gathered together in My Name, there am I in the midst of
them!" Jesus said! (Mt.18:20) PTL! So whether it's here or up there, we
will meet again! Amen? PTL! GBY all! Thanks for your patience &
your willingness to learn. ILY! GBAKYAMYAB to millions!--In Jesus'
