Monday 2/15/20 Faith And Obedience DVD # 41233


– Faith and obedience. What a fantastic subject. You know, faith is if you believe or not. There’s no such thing, don’t ever come around me
saying I believe a little bit. You’re a nonbeliever. You either believe or you don’t. Don’t play games
with our Father. He doesn’t appreciate that. So if you believe, then faith begins to build. And then following
faith comes obedience. That means you begin to be
useful to our Heavenly Father. What a privilege
it is to serve him. Open your bibles if you
would to Romans chapter 10. Let’s go to the
teachings of Paul here. And we find in
Romans chapter 10, a word of wisdom from our
Father, Yeshua his name. Romans 10, chapter 10, Romans 10:1, that’s a big one. And it reads, brethren, my heart’s desire
and prayer to God for Israel is that they might be saved. We’re talking here about
the house of Israel, not the house of
Judah necessarily. But the house of Israel that did go over the Caucasus Mountains kinda went astray, settled Europe, later coming to
this nation, Canada, many other parts of the world. He said I want you
to hear the word that will bring you salvation. And really that’s quite simple ’cause there’s only one Savior. That’s why they named him
Jesus being translated which is to say Yeshua. And Yeshua in the Hebrew
tongue Yahweh, Savior. Only one. Verse two, for I bear them record that they have a zeal of God, but not according to knowledge. In other words, they have zeal. They really want to please God. But they sure don’t have a zeal for diggin’ into the manuscripts
and gainin’ knowledge. They’d rather just fluff
it with fluff balls rather than getting
into the word of God to learn the actual
truth that does save. There’s a deception coming. And those that are
weak in the scriptures are most likely
going to be deceived. That’s what Paul’s message
is here as he builds to it. Verse three, for they being
ignorant of God’s righteousness. That’s to say doing what
God considers to be right. And going after, about rather, to establish their own, I repeat their
own righteousness. That’s to say their own law, their own way of what
they think is right. Have not submitted themselves
unto the righteousness of God. They just haven’t come to
the real truth of God’s word. Because they would
rather follow man’s. What does the majority think? And it’s from the
beginning of time, the majority has
always been wrong. When Christ stood alone, where was the majority? Against him. And so it remains to this day that the large majority
would rather kinda play. They got a zeal for church. But you got a bunch of one
verse revolving revs in here that all they ever do is
teach one verse of God’s word when they should be
teaching chapter by chapter, and verse by verse, saying what sayeth the Lord God, whereby the person gains
knowledge and wisdom. Whereby you’re fit to serve. Otherwise, you got zeal, but no zeal for knowledge. For Christ is the end of
the law for righteousness to everyone that believeth. In other words all the law. Israel chapter seven. A virgin shall conceive. She will bear a son, name him Immanuel, being interpreted God with us. All the law led up to
the birth of Christ. All the way back to the
garden when Eve was told, you’ll be the mother
of all living. There was all the races
created on the sixth day. She certainly wasn’t
their mother physically. However, through that womb, umbilical cord to
umbilical cord, would come this one Christ. And through him, all
peoples find salvation, whomsoever will. And so it is written, Christ being the fulfillment. Did he destroy the law? No, he would rather
say in Matthew, I do not change one jot. That’s not even the
pronunciation of
one little letter whether an A is ay or ah. I don’t change one bit of it. It still exists, but
he did fulfill it okay, and did away with
blood sacrifices. Five, for Moses. Going all the way back to
Moses saying Moses knew better. For Moses describeth
the righteousness, that’s to say what’s right, which is of the law, that the man which doeth these
things shall live by them. He’ll be saved if he obeys them. And naturally it was
a pretty tough chore to obey all the law, still is to this day. Verse seven, but
the righteousness, or doing what’s right
which is of faith. We come to a little
different thing here. Faith speaketh on this wise. Say not in thine heart who
shall ascend into heaven. That is to bring
Christ down from above. Why, he’d already come. And we continue
then, verse seven. Or who shall descend
into the deep? That is to bring Christ
again from the dead. He’d already risen. It already happened. And the thing you want to catch, what was Christ? He was the living word, the word became flesh
and walked among us. Did they listen? Did they observe? Verse eight. But what saith it? What can we gather from this? The word is nigh thee, even in thy mouth
and in thy heart. That is the word of
faith which we preach. And it is that word of faith
that brings repentance. Not acquittal but forgiveness for breaking righteousness. When you slip, that righteousness that
puts you back again in the state of God. Do you understand that
Moses the lawgiver saw this many years ago? He saw it. Turn with me back to
Deuteronomy chapter 30. Deuteronomy chapter 30. This is teaching Moses. Listen to it, verse 10. If thou shalt hearken unto
the voice of the Lord thy God to keep his commandments
and his statutes which are written in
this book of the law, and if thou turn unto the Lord
thy God with all thine heart and with all thy soul. Those are qualifications. Listen to ’em. 11, for this commandment
which I command thee this day, it is not hidden from thee, neither is it far off. In other words it’s
not under some rock. It’s not kept secret. 12, it is not in heaven
that thou shouldest say, who shall go up for us to heaven and bring it unto us that
we may hear it and do it? To hear and to do is to have faith
and receiving it. But then at the same time, begin obedient and doing it. At least try. You know, none of us are perfect and we botch things
occasionally. But if you try with the
genuineness of your heart, God stamps it perfect. In his mind it is
because you tried. You tried to make a difference. You did make a difference. But here we see way
back in Moses’ time, Moses knew there
was a better way. He knew that it would be
brought down from heaven, that the word would
walk among us. He was told in a different place a prophet would be raised
from our own people, which was Yeshua, and would bring that truth. Verse 13 then. Neither is it beyond the sea. That means the deep. That thou shouldest say, who shall go over the sea
for us and bring it unto us that we may hear it and do it? In other words, Christ had
already come up from the grave. That’s what Paul was quoting
in the New Testament there. But you know, Christ also made a play on this, and I think I’m gonna add it. I hadn’t planned on it, but the Spirit says do it. And that is the fact
that in the parable of the rich man and Lazarus. Lazarus being interpreted
back to the Hebrew, Eleazar, the name of the
first son of Aaron who was a legitimate priest. The other two partook
of strange fire. He said in this place, the old rich man he said hey, if you won’t help me, then send Lazarus back from
the dead to my brothers and they’ll believe. So it doesn’t matter whether
one returns to the grave, for Christ did if he were there. And yet they still
don’t believe. Can you believe that? A man, our Savior
resurrected from the dead. The almighty power of
God that brought him back to our dimension
where we could see him, they still didn’t believe? Why are there nonbelievers? It’s amazing. Really amazing. Moses knew it. That’s why it was
written long ago. That’s why Christ brought
it up concerning the parable of Lazarus and the rich man. He told ’em, said, they wouldn’t
believe him either. And people choose not. There’s a penalty for that. Let’s read of it, verse 14. And this is a verse
that should be reported on every high Sabbath. That means Passover, Pentecost, and Feast of Tabernacles. But the word is night unto thee, in thy mouth, and in thy heart, that thou mayest do it. Not that you have to. You’re privileged, you may. You may do it. That’s where the
blessings come from. God pours blessings
of life out on those that want to please him, that want to love him. He doesn’t want
your burnt offerings as it’s written in Hosea 6:6. He wants your love. He want you to love him. That’s why he created you. That’s why your
DNA is different. Your fingerprints are different. You’re unique. He wanted someone just like you. But he wanted you to love him. Or there are conditions. And here is that
condition as we read 15. See, I have set before thee
this day life and good, and death and evil. The choice is yours. It’s your boat. You’re sailing it, okay. You got two ways to go. You got life. That’s eternal life. And good, or hey hit
the rocks friend. Death and evil. Do you want to bring
evil into your life? There’s enough of
it in the world without bringing it
into your life when you’re inoculated against evil because God has given you
power over all of your enemies when you do believe. That’s scriptural. Exercise it. Utilize that power. The power of Christians is to overcome all
of our enemies. In his name, of course. But the choice is yours. It’s that simple. What’s the penalty? This is important, beloved. This is what it comes down
to in the great apostasy. In that I command thee this day to love the Lord thy God, to walk in his ways, and to keep his commandments, and his statutes,
and his judgments. That thou mayest
live and multiply. And the Lord thy God
shall bless thee. He means it. He will bless thee in the land wither thou goest to possess it. We posses it. In God we trust. This great nation where we have
freedom of religion, freedom to broadcast
around the world through the laws of the land. Fantastic, why? God blesses. God blesses America. Oh we’ve got some
bad things going on. Don’t worry, squash it. What do you do when
little ants come in? Stomp ’em okay. Take charge. Christians are not
second class citizens. Don’t choose that bad way. Do you know what the
results of it are? Read it and weep here if you happen to
be one that chooses the way that is evil. 16, I’m sorry 17. But, on the other hand, but. If thine heart turn away, so that thou will not hear, but shall be drawn away
and worship other gods. Worship what? Not our Father, but other gods. Antichrist, false messiah. And serve them. The whole world whores
after the antichrist. Why, they’re deceived. Well we just heard that
if all we did was believe, we’d fly away. That isn’t what the word says. As a matter of fact, Ezekiel 13:20 God says, I’m against those that
teach my children to fly to save their souls. I expect you to put
on the gospel armor and stand against the
fiery darts of Satan. You are able to withstand
the fiery darts of Satan when you have the gospel
armor on and in place. As it is written in
Ephesians chapter six. So don’t serve wickedness. Let’s return if we may to
the 10th chapter of Romans. There again, all the way back to Moses’
time you had a choice. Moses knew it was comin’. He knew Christ would
be born of a virgin. He knew that Christ would
resurrect from the grave, that the word would walk
with us, be with us, and all you had to do
was listen to hear, and you would hear
the word of God. This is something
that every minister hopes that people will
see and understand. Verse nine of that
10th chapter of Romans. That if thou shalt
confess with thy mouth that the Lord Jesus… With the mouth the Lord Jesus and shall believe in
thine heart that God hath raised him from the dead, thou shalt be saved. You gotta know he
came from this, see he came back to life. That is to say seemingly. While he was in that
grave, he was busy. He was knockin’ on the doors
of hell sayin’ let my people go as is written in
1 Peter 3:18-19. And Satan had no choice
but turn ’em loose as chapter four of
1 Peter declares. Many were freed,
many of the captives. Why, God gave the ones
that died before salvation the opportunity to
receive it at that time as they stood in paradise. They have that equal chance. God is always fair. He’s always right. He’s always righteous. So there we have it. For with the heart, man believeth unto
righteousness. That’s justification,
doing what’s right. And with the mouth, confession
is made unto salvation. Obedience, and he’s saved. She’s saved. For the scripture sayeth, whosoever believeth on
him shall not be ashamed. And so it is it’s open to all that salvation both to the Jew, both to the Greek, both to all ethnos. It’s there. Abraham, a blessing
to all nations. Not just one. Skip with me to verse 16. But they have not all
obeyed the gospel. For Esaias, that’s to
say Isaiah in the Hebrew, sayeth Lord who hath
believed our report? Well sometimes it doesn’t
seem like too many do. Too busy to listen to
chapter by chapter, verse by verse. So then faith cometh by hearing and hearing by the word of God. That’s what
strengthens your faith. Not hearing man’s word. That won’t cut it. That won’t do it. If you’re a good psychologist and you have a degree
or two in psychology, you might make someone feel
better for a little bit, but they don’t get blessed. But when you hear
the word of God, when you hear the best advice that can be given in the world, you read it from the letter
that he has written to you, to you personally. To see, to understand, and to grow by it. And that word lifts you. It raises you. But do you know something, to some people
it’s just a sound. They hear the words but they don’t hear the message. Sometimes there’s a
mental block there. And as it is written
in Romans chapter 11, that’s the very next chapter, he says for some I’ve sent
the spirit of slumber, stupor in the Greek, upon them. Whereby they couldn’t hear. And so it is that, and it is true that
faith cometh by hearing and hearing by the word of God. There is no other. So there’s no substitute. That’s what strengthens you. That’s what holds
you family together. That’s what keeps the
family from gettin’ in a big brawl over how a
package of wieners are opened ’cause they got more
sense than that. They don’t argue
about juvenile stuff because they’ve got
God in their house. They have the word of
God in their house. 18, but I say, have they not heard? Yes verily, their sound went
into all the earth, and their words unto
the ends of the earth. That’s to say the
prophets and the apostles, it went out there. But you want to work
a little research? I don’t advise this. But go out on the street and
just start stopping people and ask good Bible questions and see what you end up with. Then somebody that’s supposed
to be pretty well educated, ask ’em if they’ve ever read chapter two of
Nebuchadnezzar one. They’ll probably say
yeah, yes I have. Well there is no such book. I’m not asking you
to practice trickery, but I’m saying it’s a disgrace
at the biblical knowledge. We’re so well founded
in technology. I mean we’ve really got
that technology just boom, from one end of this
earth to the other. Take the internet, good, bad, and ugly, all of it, okay. But theology is disappearing
if we’re not careful. We’re gonna see that it doesn’t. Thank God to many
different ministries that hold that line, that keep that truth. But that’s how faith comes. You want to
strengthen your faith? Get into the word of God. But don’t just read it. Understand it. Sometimes you have to go
back to the manuscripts. That’s fine. I’ve taught you
what tools to use. Go back to the manuscripts and then you find what’s
really written there, and how beautiful it is
that our Father can lead us and guide us, and direct us. But Paul quotes from the
Old Testament quite a bit. Why, he was a scholar, and he knew that Old Testament. He was well-equipped. He was zealous for
the word of God, just as he was zealous
to punish the church. But once he saw and observed
that Christ had come, that Christ had resurrected, that zeal went to serve God. Turn with me to
1 Corinthians 10. I’m sorry, make
it 2 Corinthians. That’s the one that has
a two in front of it. Paul’s writin’ a letter. You know, Paul was kind of a
tough old bird in some ways. He had to be, okay. And a lot of times
people thought, well he’s just
not well educated. No, he was probably better
educated than a lot of ’em. It’s just that he didn’t
put up with malarkey. He was bold. When he walked in, he walked in. They knew he was there. And when he taught, he taught. He said, you be
nice I’ll be nice. You get rough on me and
you’re gonna get it. Well that’s the way it should be when God’s word is taught. Chapter 10 verse
one, 2 Corinthians. Now I Paul myself, this is in person, beseech you by the meekness
and gentleness of Christ, who in presence am
base among you, humble, but being absent
and bold toward you. I hope what he’s saying here and it kinda loses a
little in the translation, I hope y’all just
continue on like you are so I can continue being nice in the sweet spirit of Jesus and that I don’t have
to crack the whip. Okay, I added the word whip, but that’s what he meant, okay. That gets it said. He didn’t like to do that. But I beseech you
that I may not be bold when I am present
with that confidence, wherewith I think to
be bold against some, which think of us as if we
walked according to the flesh. They think we just have
an ordinary message, that we’re in this
for the money, okay. That’s what they
think, some of them. For though we walk in the flesh, we do not war after the flesh. Let’s take one more verse. For the weapons of our
warfare are not carnal, but mighty through God to the
pulling down of strongholds. That means even devils, okay. You have power over devils
in the name of Christ if you’re hoss enough to use it. By that I mean if you’re enough
of a Christian to stand up and utilize the name
of Yeshua Messiah, Jesus the Christ, against any form
of satanic thing. It’s gotta cut weight. It’s gotta give slack. If you’re a strong
enough Christian, you realize it’s
not you doing it but the Lord Jesus Christ. It’s gonna happen, why? He gave us that
power, that authority. And Christians should use it. You don’t have to take
anything off of Satan. Our weapons come from on high. That doesn’t mean we’re
gonna let somebody abuse us here on earth. As an old combat Marine,
I’m always ready okay. If somebody wants to take me on, well you better know beforehand, been there, done that. Anyway, our main
weaponry is not carnal. It’s from above. Do you know something? You can really just beg, plead, cry, weep to change
somebody’s mind on something. All God has to do
is snap his fingers. He can change a mind. I’ve seen it. Seen it happen. Man is kinda helpless
sometimes on some things. God isn’t. When you latch in, when you wire in, plug in
to that power from on high. Verse five. Casting down imaginations,
that’s false reasonings, and every high thing
that exalteth itself against the knowledge of God
and bringeth into captivity every thought to the
obedience of Christ. That’s the way it should be. Obeying, that’s the
title of this lecture. Obeyance, that is to say, faith and obeying. To the obeying of
Christ means what? You’re obeying his word. You’re serving him. You’re useful. You know, he pays
after you have earned. He said, I know what the
flowers have need of, and I know what the
little birds have need of. And if you do the work, I know what you have need of. Until then forget it. He doesn’t say forget it. He just says the blessings
come after the work. That’s kinda normal, okay. And so it is. And having in a readiness
to revenge all disobedience, when your obedience
is fulfilled. This is a hard line to cut. Some people think well, you let a little bit
too much of the old core slip into your ministry. No I don’t. If somebody disobeys
Christ and his teachings to the wounding of the children and you’re responsible,
do something. Don’t just stand there. Don’t be a wimp. You’re a child of God. Always act like it. Be ready, always ready. Do you look on things after
the outward appearance? Question. If any man trust to
himself that he is Christ, let him of himself
think this again that as he is Christ, even so are we Christ. In other words you can
look at me and my actions and you can see my
connection to Christ. And Paul was, this was a tender
subject to Paul because he had
persecuted the church. And he always came
down on himself. But in so doing, he received 39 stripes, shipwrecked, beaten. I mean he had done it all
serving the Lord Jesus Christ. Said you look at me. If you want to go by
the outward appearance, I can cut my weight, okay. I can get it done. Verse eight. For though I should
boast somewhat more of our authority which the Lord hath
given us for edification. Why did the Lord give it to him? To edify, to correct, to improve, to help lives. And not for your destruction, I should not be ashamed. And he never had to be, okay. That I may not seem as if I
would terrify you by letters. And he wouldn’t. He wrote strong, to the point, and real truth. He never terrorized anyone. He never tortured anyone. Just like our military today. We don’t torture anyone. But Lord only knows. If you want to know
what real torture is, there’s certain leaders
in Congress and the Senate that every time they show up
on television it’s torture. (congregation laughing) Especially if they
open their mouth. It’s terrible. Be that as it may,
he didn’t all right. I don’t know why I said that (congregation laughing) but it’s a fact. Okay, verse nine. That I may not seem as if I
would terrify you by letters. 10, for his letters they say
are weighty and powerful, but his bodily presence is weak, and his speech contemptible. He’s a poor speaker. He’s not a good preacher. They can say that
all they want to. We still teach Paul from one
end of this world to the other. Where are those other people? Their offspring are still
there and we’re still goin’. Let such as one think this that such as we are in
word by letters when we are absent, such will we be also in
deed when we’re present. And he continues on, and I’m gonna spare you that, saying watch your measure, how you meet things
out for yourself. Don’t build yourself up. Speakers have a way,
if you’re not careful, of building themselves up, making mighty men and
women of themselves. Never forget the last
verse of this chapter. If you ever get that feeling you want to come and read it. It says, verse 18, for not he that commendeth
himself is approved, but whom the Lord commendeth. There you got it. Now Paul brought you to
this place for a reason. He took you back to
the Old Testament. He’s spoken of obedience. He’s spoken of faith. And he’s gonna open
this 11th chapter up. It’s a little bit confusing
in the translation. But what it says, I want to open my heart up, and I want to show
you what concerns me. You may think me foolish, but I want you to
know in my heart. This is Paul speaking. I want you to know
what really worries me, what concerns me. He wasn’t worried,
but concerns me. Chapter 11, verse one. Would to God you would bear
with me a little in my folly and indeed bear with me. I want you to listen to me
when I open my heart to you. I’m gonna use an analogy here, only it’s a true analogy. For I am jealous over you with godly jealousy for I have espoused
you to one husband, that I may present you as
a chaste virgin to Christ. In other words I don’t want
you to lose your virginity. I want you to wait spiritually
for the true Messiah. I don’t want you
falling off to the fake. I don’t want you
worshiping another god. I don’t want you
worshiping another Jesus other than the one we’ve taught. And he meant it exactly. Verse three, why? But I fear, lest by any means as the
serpent beguiled Eve. The word beguiled is
expatao in the Greek and it means wholly seduced. And it only has one meaning. Eve through his subtilty. So your mind should be
corrupted from the simplicity that is in Christ, that you’d let yourself
be slipped up on. But we’re gonna fly away. Oh are you? That’s not what God’s word says. But I believe it. Well that’s kind of sad then ’cause it’s not gonna happen. Christ is returning all right and there’s a great
apostasy coming. But the false Christ
is returning first. Satan will return as messiah. It’s gonna happen
in this generation because this is the
generation of the fig tree. The generation started in
the year of our Lord, 1948, as prophecy states. It’s the only time in
history it has happened. So how long is that generation? Well it could be 120 years. We’re waitin’, all right. We’re plowin’. But what he’s saying is, I’m afraid the serpent
as it was in the garden who seduced Eve and brought
wickedness in the world through the Cainites, Cain, the first murderer. That you’re gonna fall
for that same old stuff. Verse four. For if he that cometh
preaches another Jesus, whom we have not preached. Or if you receive another spirit
which we have not received, or another gospel which
ye have not accepted, ye might well bear with it. You better be careful. Sometimes he says
some of you swallow it hook, line, and sinker. Because you just hear stuff
that you want to hear. But he’s a great.. These are super preachers. It’s what the manuscripts
are declaring. Some super preacher comes
along preachin’ another Jesus, don’t be sucked in. There’s only one. Do you know what, well ease your
mind a little bit. Do you know what
antichrist is in the Greek? Anti is not like
antifreeze in English. Anti in the Greek is instead of. So it should be
properly translated, instead of Jesus, he comes. Are you set for it? Well that’s what Paul
is tellin’ you here. And he says this is why in
my heart I’m really worried. I just want you to see in
my heart what bothers me. For I suppose I was
not a whit behind the very chiefest apostles. They’re no better than me. They may claim to
be super preachers and they may use a little
better vocabulary than mine. But they’re not one whit
ahead of me, Paul is saying. But though I be rude in speech, yet not in knowledge. But we have been
thoroughly made manifest among you in all things. We brought you the
truth that is right. Don’t try to let
someone change it. Have I committed an
offense in abasing myself that you might be exalted
because I have preached to you the gospel of God freely? In other words he wouldn’t take an offering up among ’em, okay. He said, is that some
offense I have done? I robbed other churches,
taking wages of them, to do you service. And when I was present
with you and wanted, when I was hungry, I was chargeable to no man. For that which was lacking to me the brethren which came
from Macedonia supplied. And in all things
I have kept myself from being burdensome unto you, and so will I keep myself. That’s why Paul, he never took an offering. Some of the churches did. That’s why you’ll
never see an offering taken at Shepherd’s Chapel. You know why, we don’t have to. Why, God supplies. Because we have
intelligent people and I thank God for that. That’s what Paul is saying here. What he’s about to come
down to is he’s saying, if those super
preachers you’ve got, if they want to emulate us, let ’em do the same thing. There is no way those
preachers are gonna come there without passin’ the hat, okay. Not a prayer of a chance. And they’re gonna still be
teaching instead of Christ. And that’s what’s worried him. Verse 10. As the truth of Christ is in me. He said I’m swearing to this. No man shall stop
me of this boasting in the regions of Achaia. In other words I’m gonna
continue this truth exactly as it’s written. Wherefore, because
I love you not? God knoweth I do. I do love you. That’s why he took the stripes. That’s why he took
the shipwreck. That’s why he helped the fort. But what I do, that I will do, that I may cut off
occasion from them which desire occasion. That wherein they glory they
may be found even as we. In other words I’m
gonna pull the rug right out from under ’em. They come in with a bunch
of malarkey, false teaching. I’m gonna pull the ground
right out from under ’em so that they fall. And he did. And then he gets down
to the nitty gritty, the lesson of the hour, why he brought you here, what bothers him. For such are false apostles, deceitful workers, transforming themselves
into the apostles of Christ. This is why Jesus said, many will come in my
name in the end times. Don’t be deceived. Just because they
claim to be Christian doesn’t mean they are. They may be ignorant because of lack of zeal
for learning truth. And what he’s saying here, this word transforming, do you know what
it is in the Greek? It’s disguised. And it makes a
world of difference. You know there’s a
whole religion started because they said even
Satan’s gonna be saved ’cause he’s transformed. And if they would have
taken just a minute to go to the manuscripts, they would know it says
Satan comes disguised as an angel of light, as savior. That’s the whole subject. Don’t let somebody teach
another Jesus to you. Verse 14. And no marvel. Don’t let that get your goat. And no marvel, for Satan
himself is disguised into an angel of light. He’s comin’ to work miracles, and perform miracles in the
sight of people on this earth, to snap his fingers
as it’s written in Revelation 13:10-14. And make lightning
come down from heaven to deceive those
saying, I’m Jesus. I’m come to fly you away. What do you think most
Christians that are unlearned are going to do? Think about it. That’s what worried Paul. That’s what he’s
talkin’ about here. He said don’t marvel. Because Satan himself is coming. He says, don’t
think me a fool now. It’s gonna happen. 15, therefore it
is no great thing if his ministers
also be disguised as the ministers
of righteousness, whose end shall be
according to their works. That’s obvious. I say again, let no
man think me a fool. If otherwise, yet as
a fool receive me, that I may boast
myself a little, that I can bring
this truth forth without it being made light of. Satan’s gonna be coming
as an angel of light. And unfortunately, this separates people
that are Bible students and people that claim to be. That’s what Paul said I’m
really concerned about this. That’s why I want to
open my heart to you. I want you to see this. I want you to know it. That it’s going to happen. That’s why you need
faith in the true Christ. He that was written of long
ago in the Old Testament. Isaiah 7:14. A virgin shall conceive and give birth to a son. And that son you
shall call Immanuel, being translated God with us. For as God said
in the beginning, let us make man in not
your image, our image. God including himself. And when you see Christ, you’ve seen the Father. That’s why he said
call him Immanuel. Zechariah chapter seven. The branch would come forth. Zah-mek in the Hebrew tongue. And even the signs in the heaven gives you that same zah-mek, that virgin in the zodiac. With Dracos the old serpent waiting to grab that
seed, that man child. God put the sign
there a long time ago. It’s not for you
to worship stars. It’s for you to know the
truth wherever you are. You can’t miss it. It is gone out to
the whole world. And see that you’re
not deceived. Because that time is coming. And you might say, well how do you know
it’s that generation? Well because what did Jesus say in Matthew chapter
24 and Mark 13 concerning the end times? They asked him. Lord, what’s it gonna
be like when you return? And he gave ’em seven events which are the seven trumps, the seven seals, and the seven vials, all laid out for you in
Matthew 24 and Mark 13, that a child can
understand them. And one of the
things he said there, when all was said, learn. Not maybe. He said not if you
get around to it. He said learn it
and he meant it. Learn the parable
of the fig tree. Well what’s that? When you see her putting
forth branches, that’s leaves, and it’s yet tender. The horticulture of a fig
is you don’t plant a seed. You set out a plant. And then when you learn more of that parable of the fig tree, you learn why Adam and Eve
sowed fig leaves over themselves after they had been
seduced in a fig garden, not an apple garden. Let’s stick to the word of God. And then you learn in Jeremiah
24 where there’s two figs. There’s good and there’s bad. And then that when all of Judah, not Israel but Judah, came back together and
established the nation that would plant or set out
the shoot that is the fig tree. Both the good and the bad. That’s why you will
see no peace there until the true Prince
of Peace returns. How fortunate it is to be
a student of God’s word whereby you can absorb
truths with knowledge and have zeal for understanding. I want to see that. I want to see the truth. I want to know what
God is saying to us. Get that zeal in your heart and he blesses you for that. He touches you
and raises you up. And then he can call you servant because you’re
fit for something. You know what tomorrow brings. You know, a lot of
people will say, well I just want to serve Jesus. Well, how familiar are
you with his teachings? Well I know I’m saved. Saved by who? The first Christ
or the second one? I didn’t know there were two. Then see they’re
in a heap of hurt because the first one’s a fake. And Matthew 24 and Mark 13, Jesus didn’t say maybe the
antichrist comes first. He said the antichrist
does come first. It’s his teachings. And it gets blotted
out by Dracos himself, through his servants. Many of ’em claim to
be Bible translators. Don’t ever let anyone do your
translating but a Christian. That may offend some
but that’s tough. Because Christian translators
understand truths. Christian translators
understand what it means when it states
that Mary Magdalene was betrothed to Jesus Christ. It didn’t mean they
were man and wife. A Christian knows we’re all
betrothed to Jesus Christ. So be careful my friend. You’re living in a generation that you really want to
hear the word of God. And faith comes by
hearing the word of God. Let your faith be
strengthened in that. Heavenly Father, thank you Father for
your written word. Thank you Father for all
the apostles and prophets that you have sent us, Father. Thank you for the Son
and yourself Father for guiding, directing, leading. We thank you in the precious
name of Yeshua Messiah, Jesus the Christ, amen. – [Narrator] “The Mark
of the Beast” on CD is our free introductory
offer to you. What is the mark of the beast? Many false teachers
would have you believe it will be a tattoo
on your forehead or a computer chip
implanted under your skin. It is getting late in the game. You need to know what
the mark of the beast is. As it’s written in
Revelation 13:8, many will be deceived. There is no need for
you to be deceived. Christ said in Mark 13:23, behold I have foretold
you all things. Jesus indeed told us
how not to be deceived. And Pastor Arnold
Murray takes you on a step by step
study of God’s word concerning this
critical subject, the mark of the beast. The telephone call is free. The CD is free. We don’t even ask for the
shipping and handling. It is free as well. All you need to do
is call 800-643-4645 to request your one-time, one per household copy of
“The Mark of the Beast”. You may also
request your free CD by mailing your request
to Shepherd’s Chapel, post office box 416, Gravette, Arkansas 72736. Don’t be deceived by Satan. – Shepherd’s Chapel, how did Daniel read
the words on the wall? I’m only eight years old
and I read that scripture. Well great, that’s good. I’m proud of you. And I see you also
read 2 Chronicles 24. In the book of Daniel, Mene, Mene, Tekel, Shekel, and Upharsin. Your kingdom, Daniel
could see it on the wall. It was written there. God saw to it that
it was written there and he could observe
it very clearly, hon. And it let him know that
Nebuchadnezzar’s kingdom was divided and
it was gonna fall. And Upharsin means the
Persians were gonna take him. That’s Iran of today. Dorothy from Alabama. I’ve been watchin’
you since 1996. You have showed us discovered
remains of dinosaurs. Have you discovered any
remains of the ghee-bur. You’re not gonna
find any ghee-bur in the United States okay. You would have to find them in the place where
the houses are ever so big, sierra. And that’s where most of
their houses are found. And I can’t say the
name of the town. Petra, okay, Petra. And they’re huge
buildings, fantastic. I think we have a
documentary on Petra. You might enjoy it. Joanne from Georgia. Joanne, sin and ignorance
from a young person is no sin. If you commit a sin… And by that I mean it is a sin, but it’s forgivable. All you have to do is
repent and know you’re saved and everything is fine. God loves you, all right. Nancy from New York. But I notice on your question and
answer part of your program that people ask questions
about going to Jerusalem to face Satan there. But Jesus told us
get out of Jerusalem. Well you got to rightly
divide the word, dear. Jesus said in Mark 13, when you see the
abomination of desolation spoken of by Daniel the prophet, get out of Judea, which is the state in
which Jerusalem was. Meaning, it’s not gonna be
real safe there for a while. But at the same time, the trials which you’re asking
about I’m pretty sure, yeah. Thessalonians chapter two makes it very clear,
2 Thessalonians 2, that antichrist
appears in Jerusalem claiming to be the
Lord Jesus Christ and that’s where the
trials take place, okay. Hope that answers
your questions. Minnie from North Carolina. It’s perfectly okay
to eat beef, okay. Beef chew their cud and they have a split hoof. A horse doesn’t
have a split hoof so a horse is not good. You don’t eat horse meat, okay. But a cow, cattle, the kine I’ll call them
as the Bible calls them, they do, they chew their cud, and they have a split hoof, and they are a clean animal. Beef is fine, no problem. Gilda from Virginia. My question, I use a
Farmer’s Almanac hand-guide for planning purposes and
animal weening purposes. Is it okay scripturally,
absolutely. In the first chapter
of the Bible, Genesis, God says I give
you the sun, moon, and the stars for signs, okay. When the moon phases, it will take the ocean and
raise it eight or ten feet. I’ll say that again. When the moon crosses
over in a certain phase, it’s called tide, the tide. What causes the tide to come
up eight or 10 feet, the moon. Now at the same time when
we use the moon for planting here on terra firma, out here in the soil, it means if you’re
planning a root crop, at that same section, the water level
here also comes up. And it makes for
better planting. No there’s nothing wrong
with it and it’s very wise. Weening cattle and castrating calves when
the blood is down, they won’t bleed as much. It’s not a religion. It’s just signs,
okay, and the zodiac. And it’s very helpful. Nothing wrong with it. Nothing wrong at all. George from California. My question is about
Ezekiel chapter one. Could you explain briefly
about what is happening here? Well Ezekiel coming right out
the gate in verse four sees an amber colored vehicle. Only the word amber, there’s no such word as
color in the Hebrew, okay. But what the word
amber is in the Hebrew is highly polished bronze. It had the appearance. This vehicle, this
circular vehicle, had the appearance of
highly polished bronze. And Ezekiel now, all he’s ever seen a
wheel is on an ox cart turnin’ by your side. And he said, these
didn’t go by your side. They looked not where they went. Meaning they didn’t have
a head and a neck on ’em. They just, if they went, they just went, okay. They didn’t look where
they went and then go. He did a real good
job of describing the
vehicle, all right. That’s what it’s about. God’s throne was there and
God’s throne needs a vehicle. And the vehicle was there. Okay, Don from Maryland. When I heard you speak
about being delivered up before the antichrist, it sounds as though you mean
in a physical deliverance. If this is so, will it include
everyone on earth, or just the elect? Just the elect, and probably just the
princes of the elect as is written in 1 Kings. Secondly, being a senior
on a fixed income, I cannot foresee making
a trip to Jerusalem. But with all the many signs, I have some idea of
the time to come. If I do not start
making plans to go to allow the Holy Spirit
to speak through me to witness for God, then who else will do it? Should I start makin’ a
plan now for the trip? No, no, no, no, no. When the antichrist appears, if you need transportation, he’ll furnish it okay. He’s going to make everything
free and plentiful. And besides, at that time, there will be transportation
on earth we can’t even imagine. And that’s why a lot of people
are gonna be deceived by him is the fact that there’s some
miraculous things going on. Some of those vehicles
we were talking about can transport readily, okay. So you just ride easy. Just exactly bloom
where you’re planted. If you’re really
upset about this, I have a work titled “Bloom
Where You’re Planted”. You need to hear it. God’s got you where you are
because he needs you there or you wouldn’t be there, okay. So don’t start savin’ your
money to make some trip that’s not necessary, all right. You would get to Jerusalem
and they’d have to lock you up because they would not
understand why you were there or anything else at this time. Nelly from Virginia. It’s not time yet,
in other words. Nelly from Virginia. You said that you thought
everyone would be around 33 in the spirit world. What does Isaiah… That’s the age of Christ
and that’s as he was. What about Isaiah
11, six and eight? It’s a figure of speech saying it’ll be safe for a child
to play with a snake ’cause it’s not a carnivore
or is poisonous anymore. I’m out of time. Hey, I love you all because you enjoy studying
our Father’s word. But most of all, God
loves you for it. You make his day, he’s gonna make yours. We are brought to you by
your tithes and offerings. If we’ve helped you, you help us keep coming to you. Won’t you do that? When you bless God, he always blesses you. Do you know what’s
most important though? This, that you stay in his word. Every day in his
word is a good day, even with trouble. Do you know why? Because Jesus, Yeshua, he is the living word. – [Narrator] Hearing God’s
