Israel is God’s time clock. The church age, as precious as it is to our Lord, is but an interlude between the sixty-ninth and seventieth weeks within the 70 weeks of years prophesied in Daniel 7:20-27. To recognize God’s chronology, we must look for signs that signal the approach of the seventieth week of years. “And he spake to them a parable; Behold the fig tree, and all the trees; When they now shoot forth, ye see and know of your own selves that summer is now nigh at hand. So likewise ye, when ye see these things come to pass, know ye that the kingdom of God is nigh at hand. Verily I say unto you, This generation shall not pass away, till all be fulfilled.” (Luke 21:29-32) Jesus warned us to be aware of the signs of the times (Matthew 16:2-3) so that the day of His return would not find us unaware (Luke 21:34-36).

He then gave numerous signs that would show the nearness of His return (Luke 21:25-28). He illustrated the principle of signs with the parable of a fig tree. In the parable of the fig tree, we see a symbol of the nation of Israel. We believe in the parable Jesus is telling us that when Israel comes back to life (like a tree buds in springtime) that is, becomes a nation again, to expect that His return is near. If you refer to the chart entitled “Captivity of Israel” on the next page, you will notice that God’s word shows us that Israel would be restored as a nation on May 14, 1948. Israel became a nation May 14, 1948. Why is this date so significant? Luke 21:32 talks about a generation that will not pass away before all these things be fulfilled. The generation that this scripture refers to is the generation that was born when Israel became a nation. This generation, born in 1948, will not pass away before the return of Jesus Christ. If we average the generations listed in the Bible for the 2000 years before Jesus, we can conclude that a generation is about 52 years. When we add this to May 1948, we come to somewhere quite near the year 2000. Similarly, if we calculate 6,000 years or 6 days (a day is as 1,000 years and 1,000 years as a day II Peter 3:8) from the time of the creation of Adam and Eve, we come to somewhere near the year 2000. The millennium corresponds to the 7th day in which God rested (ceased His work). So we too enter into the rest of the Lord during the millennium (1000 years) our work is finished.

We are not suggesting that 2000 is the year of the second coming of Jesus Christ. But, by these signs we know we are getting so very close to the soon coming of our Lord Jesus Christ. Let us look at how God’s word provides us with the date May 14, 1948. In Ezekiel 4, God instructed Ezekiel to lay on his side for 430 days, representing 430 years of iniquity upon Israel. But He also promised that He will gather Israel “out of all countries, and will bring you into your own land” (Ezekiel 36:24.) True to prophecy, the people were taken captive by Nebuchadnezzar, King of Babylon, in 606 B.C. (Daniel 1.) The Babylonian Captivity lasted 70 years as prophesied in Jeremiah 25:11, ending in 536 B.C. (Ezra 1.) At the conclusion of the Bablylonian Captivity, 360 years remained of the 430 years prophesied by Ezekiel. But Israel did not repent of its sin. Indeed only 50,000 people returned at the end of the 70 years (Ezra 2:64-65.) Most of Israel choose not to return with Zerubbabel at that time. In Leviticus 26:18, God warned Israel that if Israel continued in sin after punishment, the punishment would be multiplied 7 times. When the remaining 360 years is multiplied by 7, the punishment extends to 2,520 years.

God’s prophetic year is based upon a 360 day year (see Genesis 7:11, 7:24 and 8:5; Revelation 12:6 and 12:14, as examples). 2,520 years of 360 days is 907,200 days. Based upon our solar calendar, this is 2483 years, 9 months and 21 days. Adding this period to the date of the decree of King Cyrus discussed in Ezra 1 (see above), we come to what is most probably May 14, 1948 (do not forget that there is no year 0 A.D.)

God’s Word & Jerusalem: June 7, 1967 The exact same calculation can also apply to the captivity of Jerusalem. When the people were taken into captivity in 606 B.C., the city of Jerusalem was not then destroyed. However, in 587 B.C., Jerusalem was taken and the temple destroyed (II Kings 25.) 70 years later, in 517 B.C., the temple was reconstructed (Ezra 6:15.) When we add 2483 years, 9 months and 21 days to this date, we come to what is most probably June 7, 1967. What is special about this date? June 7, 1967 is the concluding day of the “6-Day War,” in which Israel, for the first time since 517 B.C., regained Jerusalem. God’s keen interest in Israel clearly continues into this century. The Signs of Israel Following are some additional signs which point to God’s special interest in Israel and the final countdown to the Lord’s return. This list is by no means complete, but includes just some items that hopefully will excite you to get into God’s word:

I. God’s Protective Hand on Israel Shortly after Israel became a nation she was attacked. With God, a one-eyed general, and only one airplane, Israel was victorious. In 1967, in 6 days, although vastly outnumbered, Israel repelled all invaders and recaptured Jerusalem. In the Iraq war, 39 missiles were fired into Israel, but not one single Israeli was killed. Israel has prospered and grown. Folks, God’s hand is on Israel.

II. God’s Restoration

A. The Jews return home In 1882 there were approximately 25,000 Jews in Palestine. In 1900 there were 50,000. In 1922 there were 84,000. In 1931 there were 175,000. In 1948 there were 650,000. (Israel became a Nation). In 1952 there were 1,421,000. Today there are approximately 3,500,000 Jews in Palestine (Israel). This re-gathering and prospering of Israel as a distinct nation is exactly what God said He would do. In Ezekiel 34, God said: “For thus saith the Lord GOD; Behold, I, even I, will both search my sheep, and seek them out . . . And I will bring them out from the people, and gather them from the countries, and will bring them to their own land, and feed them upon the mountains of Israel by the rivers, and in all the inhabited places of the country.” (34:11,13) In Isaiah 43, God said: “I will say to the north, Give up; and to the south, Keep not back: bring my sons from far, and my daughters from the ends of the earth; (43:6) The number of Jews has increased over 120 times in less than 100 years. In Ezekiel 36, God said: “For I will take you from among the heathen, and gather you out of all countries, and will bring you into your own land.” In Jeremiah 31, God said: “Behold, I will bring them from the north country, and gather them from the coasts of the earth, and with them the blind and the lame, the woman with child and her that travaileth with child together: a great company shall return thither.” (Jeremiah 31:8) God said He would bring back His people from all countries, some of which are surprising.

B. Ethiopian Jews Return to Israel “3,000 year journey now complete, Ethiopian Jews return home. In Ethiopian history it is recorded that about 3,000 years ago the queen of Sheba visited Solomon. Scripture states that they exchanged gifts. Ethiopian history fills in the gaps, according to history they were married and produced a son named Memelik, who was educated in Jerusalem, but after a time returned home with his mother. From that day to this, the Ethiopian Jews have awaited their destiny. On the 24th and 25th of May, Operation Solomon brought them home at last.” (Excerpted from an article in News From Israel, 9/28/91.)

C. Soviet Jews Return to Israel “1 million Soviet Jews head for their new homeland.” Time, 1/14/91.

III. The Temple Prophecy is now being fulfilled as to the soon returning of Christ and the building of the temple. Although God will no longer dwell in a temple constructed by men (Acts 7:48), the temple in Jerusalem must be built again so that God’s word is fulfilled. II Thessalonians tells us that the anti-christ will sit in the temple and proclaim himself to be God (2:4). So a temple will be located in Jerusalem on the holy site (Mount Zion) as the time of the end draws near.

A. Rebuilding temple on disputed site Moslems also claim Mt. Zion as a holy site and have constructed the dome of the rock there. Scholars have long maintained that it would have to be destroyed in order to build the temple for the Jews. Recent evidence indicates that the Moslem mosque is actually located in the Court of the Gentiles which would be an open area outside the temple itself. The Jews have been preparing to rebuild the temple for years. Some of the massive foundation stones have already been quarried and at least one attempt was made to place one of these stones at the site. Also being prepared at this time are other items related to the temple and items necessary to cleanse the temple and to perform priestly duties within the temple.

B. High Priest Breastplate Currently under construction is the High Priest’s breastplate set with 12 gemstones representing the Tribes of Israel. Excerpted from an article by the Associated Press, by Mary Sedor. Please Read Exodus chapters 28-30 about the breastplate and other garments of the High Priest.

C. Tools for the temple Instruments of worship and sacrifice being displayed. Excerpted from an article in Prophecy in the News, 9/89.

D. Red Heifer Ashes from red heifer needed to cleanse temple. Excerpted from an article in News in Israel, 3/90. Please read Numbers 19:1-6.

E. Blue Dye Israel welcomes back tekhelet snails. This snail is noted for its blue coloring and is necessary to mark certain religious items. This snail once thought to be extinct is now producing in abundance along the shores of Israel. Prophecy in News, 2/91.

F. Did the ark return with the Ethiopian Jews? There is strong historical evidence that the ark has been in Ethiopia for the past 3,000 years.

The Encyclopedia Britannica records that Aksum, an ancient city in Tigre, Abysinia (modern Ethiopia), contains the ancient church where, according to tradition, the Tobot or Ark of the Covenant, brought from Jerusalem by the son of Solomon and the Queen of Sheba, was deposited and is still supposed to rest. Also Emperor Hailie Selassie alluded to this. Mussolini aimed to take the Ark in 1936 when he invaded Ethiopia (The Biblical Evangelist, 8/1/91.) Israel is God’s time clock. We need to heed the warning of our Lord to watch (Israel and other signs) and to pray that we be “accounted worthy to escape all these things that shall come to pass, and to stand before the Son of man” (Luke 21:36.) Let us not be found in disobedience to His command. Remember the words of Jesus, when He said: “And when these things begin to come to pass, then look up, and lift up your heads; for your redemption draweth nigh.” (Luke 21:28)

Genesis 6:4-7 speaks of a society that is so bad that it repented God that He had made man. In Matthew 24:37-39 Jesus said the conditions would be the same when He returns as they were in the days of Noah. When we look at society today, we find that abortion is a right, homosexuality is an accepted and soon to be protected lifestyle, young couples believe it is unwise to marry without a ‘trial marriage’ of fornication, the major television networks transmit pornography into our households, and children’s games and cartoons promote sex, violence and witchcraft. And to the extent that these values may exist primarily in the western world, how well do we send them by movie, television, newspaper and books throughout the known world.

Oh, how soon is it to the glorious return of our Lord Jesus Christ? “And God saw that the wickedness of man was great in the earth, and that every imagination of the thoughts of his heart was only evil continually. And it repented the LORD that he had made man on the earth, and it grieved him at his heart.” (Genesis 6:5- 6) “But as the days of Noe were, so shall also the coming of the Son of man be. For as in the days that were before the flood they were eating and drinking, marrying and giving in marriage, until the day that Noe entered into the ark, And knew not until the flood came, and took them all away; so shall also the coming of the Son of man be.” (Matthew 24:37- 39)

Aborted Baby Tissue: The government is funding experimentation on aborted babies dead or alive. Most babies aborted in the third trimester (6th – 9th month) will survive the abortion process. This is important because the tissue used for experimentation must come from a living baby. Some of the methods used to obtain living tissue are as follows: In Sweden, a procedure is used in which a pregnant woman is put to sleep and the baby is then located and brought down to the cervix. The doctor will then drill through the skull of the living baby and suction off the brains for implantation in victims of Parkinson’s and Alzheimer’s diseases. Similar procedures are carried out on living babies for their pancreas and skin (for burn victims) in which the baby is actually “skinned alive.” The baby tissue research business is a multi-billion dollar industry worldwide. Collagen is the gelatinous substance found in connective tissue (muscle), bone and cartilage. Many shampoos, lotions and hand and face creams contain collagen. Check the label carefully; if it doesn’t specify animal or bovine it is very possibly collagen from babies. Collagen is supposed to slow aging. Isn’t it amazing that dead babies are turned into a substance for people who are concerned with what others might think of their wrinkles? Tissue cultures are obtained by dropping still living babies into meat grinders and homogenizing them, according to the prestigious New England Journal of Medicine.  Is Abortion Murder? We are all familiar with the commandment not to kill. But what man is calling a “fetus” is really human life. Consider the following:

FACT: a heartbeat can be detected 18-25 days from conception.

FACT: brain waves can be recorded at 40 days.

FACT: at 11-12 weeks all body systems are complete.

FACT: at 12 weeks the baby is nearly one ounce and about 3 inches long

FACT: at 18-25 days this baby is pumping its own blood, not the mother’s blood. It is a separate human being. In Leviticus 17:11, the Lord said “For the life of the flesh is in the blood . . . ”

The Lord hates the shedding of innocent blood (Proverbs 6:16-17). A leading Evangelist made the statement that abortion was not a big issue because we do not know when human life begins anyway. How persuaded is he by the written word. Even the bible translation he uses provides as follows: “your eyes saw my unformed body. All the days ordained for me were written in your book before one of them came to be” (Psalms 139:16). If you would like more information on Scripture related to abortion, ask for our publication titled “Scriptures in Relation to Abortion”.

If you have been involved with abortion, you must know that God does not look upon it any differently than He did when He looked at the practice of burning babies by placing them on a red hot idol as a sacrifice to Molech as described in 2 Kings 17:17: “And they caused their sons and their daughters to pass through the fire, and used divination and enchantments, and sold themselves to do evil in the sight of the LORD, to provoke him to anger.” Yet, He desires to forgive those who will turn away from sin. For those who have had an abortion, lay it all at the alter and ask forgiveness. He is bound by His word to forgive and He will as stated in I John 1:9. Turn away from sin, ask for His forgiveness, and walk on with Jesus.

Murders/Suicide: Infants are the fastest growing group of murder victims in the U.S. Infants represent the only age group in which killings doubled between the years 1973 and 1990. (U.S.A. Today 1/24/92.) Is it any wonder these things happen? We are being desensitized to murder: by abortion, euthanasia, TV and the music we listen to. It is the New Age that wants to remove 2 billion people from the planet by the year 2000. It looks like they might be right on target. With AIDS, homosexuality, promiscuity and abortion rampant, it is no small wonder that these things are running headlong into the church. As a Christian, you cannot let your ideas be influenced by the world. Rather, you must be willing to be separated from the world. “Wherefore come out from among them, and be ye separate, saith the Lord, and touch not the unclean thing; and I will receive you, and will be a Father unto you, and ye shall be my sons and daughters, saith the Lord Almighty.” (II Corinthians 6:17-18)

Virtual Reality: Virtual Reality is a new hidden danger just over the horizon in this space age technology. The use of virtual reality by NASA to simulate Mars landings and space travel all seems very innocent. However, the commercial world is looking at Virtual Reality as a money maker and new drug that can be sold without a prescription. The warnings given here are similar to warnings applicable to video games that are loaded with subliminal messages and violence. What is Virtual Reality? It is putting on a helmet and data glove or skeletal suit, shutting out the real world, and entering into outer space or inner space as you choose. It can be a way of escape, or, as the pornography people are preparing for, it can be better than the real thing. What Are Virtual Reality’s Claims? The following quotes are from an advertisement by ZYGON which appeared in Omni magazine, October 1993, page 119. Dane Spotts says “LAUNCH YOUR MIND INTO VIRTUAL REALITY-LIKE FANTASIES” and it goes on to say that you can go on “3 FANTASTIC MIND JOURNEYS. Transport your consciousness on a journey to other times and places with three mind blowing experiences. Aboriginal Dreamtime takes you to a time when the world was new and MAGIC ruled. Cetacean mind link puts you inside a whale or a dolphin to experience an incredible ocean world. And finally the ultimate mind trip, NEAR DEATH EXPERIENCE, simulates the 5 astral stages of an out-of-body journey.” Just hit the start button and you are in electronic ZEN. Watch out for a soon coming media blitz and video store advertisements. “For as he thinketh in his heart, so is he.” (Proverbs 23:6a) “For the weapons of our warfare are not carnal, but mighty through God to the pulling down of strong holds; casting down imaginations, and every high thing that exalteth itself against the knowledge of God, and bringing into captivity every thought to the obedience of Christ” (II Corinthians 10:4-5.)

Summary: Our society shares many characteristics with society in the days of Noah. We had better get prepared and remain prepared. Learn to discern the signs of the times. Jesus warned the religious leaders of the day: “When it is evening, ye say, It will be fair weather: for the sky is red. And in the morning, It will be foul weather today: for the sky is red and lowering. O ye hypocrites, ye can discern the face of the sky; but can ye not discern the signs of the times?” (Matthew 16:2a-3). The time to turn to Jesus is now. The time to fully walk in His ways, separated from the ways of the world is now. We need to fix our minds on Jesus Christ and Him only. “We have staked the whole future of American civilization, not upon the power of government, far from it. We have staked the future of our political institutions upon the capacity of each and all of us to govern ourselves according to the ten commandments of God.” James Madison (chief architect of the U.S. Constitution)

AMERICA A NATION THAT HAS REJECTED GOD

On June 17, 1963 the United States Supreme Court issued the final decision in a series that forbid Bible reading and prayer in the public schools. Bible reading and prayer had been a part of America’s schools since the beginning of the country. The prayer the Court objected to follows: “Almighty God, we acknowledge our dependence upon Thee, and we beg Thy blessings upon us, our parents, our teachers and our Country.” God had honored prayer by giving America up to 1963 the finest educational system in the world. The Scholastic Aptitude Test (SAT) scores were the highest ever. America prior to 1963 had violent crime rate below the national population growth rate. The divorce rate was dropping steadily from the 1940’s and the teenage premarital sex rate was unchanged. By the 1990’s, a separation of church and state was established and everything to do with God had been removed from the public schools and many government institutions. When the Supreme court rejected God and His Word, immediate judgment did not appear to fall. It appeared nothing happened and the country continued on. At first the judgment for rejecting God was not felt or seen, but 30 years later it is clear that in 1963 the blessings of God were removed from America. Looking back to 1963, it is clear awesome judgment fell on America. The year 1963 literally became the separating year between God’s blessings and judgment. For the nations that honor God the Bible states “Blessed is the nation whose God is the Lord; and the people He hath chosen for His own inheritance.” Psalm 33:12. For the nation that rejects God the Bible states “The wicked shall be turned into hell and all the nations that forget God.” Psalm 9:7.

In 1963 the three greatest problems in school were talking, gum chewing and noise. By the 1990’s the three greatest problems in the godless public schools were rape, robbery and assault. The SAT scores have literally plummeted since the very year of 1963. America has paid a terrible price for rejecting God. Prior to 1963 serial killers and mass murderers were almost unheard of. Today they both occur with frightening regularity, and America is increasingly becoming a violent nation. America’s cities have become like those of a third world nation. Sexual diseases have sky rocketed along with premarital relations in our teen-agers. Since 1963 every statistic showing a social problem has risen dramatically while the statistics for things that are good have dropped. America is literally being turned into hell as the Bible states would happen to all the nations that reject God. More police will not prevent crime. More money will not improve the school system. More taxes will not solve the nation’s problems. America needs national repentance for rejecting God and allowing such sin as abortions, adultery, drugs, fornication, homosexuality and pornography to become common and accepted. The nation needs to turn to Jesus Christ as Lord to be forgiven and healed.

This article is from “God’s Final Warning to America”, by John McTernan and is used by permission. The author is available for public speaking.

The Earthquake Connection: To put God’s warnings into perspective, six of the top eleven earthquakes to hit America this century have occurred on or very near to major abortion or homosexual related events. Five of these earthquakes have struck since April, 1992! God has been very merciful, because most of the quakes were centered in remote areas, or if the quake hit a populated area, not many lives were lost; thus they serve as awesome warnings.

THE SIX FOLLOW:

10/17/89: Two days after a large abortion rights march in San Francisco – Fifth greatest earthquake The front page of the San Francisco Chronicle, October 16, 1989, had an article titled “A Huge, Spirited Abortion Rights Rally in S.F.” Page A3 of The Patriot News, October 16, 1989, had an article titled “Ten Governors Urge High Court to Uphold Abortion Rights.” The front page of The Patriot News, October 18, 1989, had an article titled “Quake Kills 47 in California.” 4/92: Height of attack against Operation Rescue in Buffalo, NY Sixth greatest earthquake (4/25/92) and Eleventh greatest earthquake (4/23/92) The front page of The Washington Post, April 6, 1992, had an article titled “Abortion Rights Rally Draws Half a Million Marchers.” Page 3A of U.S.A. Today, April 21, 1992, had an article about Operation Rescue titled “Face-Off in Buffalo.” The front page of The Patriot (Evening News), April 23, 1992, had articles titled “Justices Begin Review of State Abortion Law” and “Strong Quake Rattles West.” The front page of the New York Times, April 30, 1992, had articles titled “Los Angeles Policeman Acquitted in Taped Beating” and “Down and Divided in Buffalo, Abortion Foes Suspend Siege.” The front page of the New York Times, May 1, 1992, had an article titled “11 Dead in Los Angeles Rioting: 4,000 guard troops called out as fires and looting continue.” 6/28/92: Gay Pride Day followed by Supreme Court decision not to overturn Roe v. Wade Fourth greatest earthquake- The front page of the Los Angeles Times, June 29, 1992, had articles titled”2 Strong Quakes Jolt Wide Area” and “200,000 Attend Gay Pride Parade.” 1/17/94: Day after Sanctity of Life Sunday and five days before the 21st anniversary of Roe v. Wade. Seventh greatest earthquake The front page of the Los Angeles Times, January 18, 1994, had an article titled “33 Die, Many Hurt in 6.6. Quake.” The epicenter of the quake was in Northridge, California, where 80% of all video pornography was made. The Associated Press, January 28, 1992, had an article titled “Quake Affects Porn Industry.” This earthquake was the most powerful in the world in 1992. An aftershock to this quake was the ninth greatest earthquake. Ten of the most severe earthquakes in the world in 1992 were located in California.

God intended that men would look at what He had created and know that He is. When we truthfully study what nature wants us to hear and know, not what the world wants to believe, it becomes apparent that God designed and created the earth, mankind and all creatures, exactly how it is recorded in the Holy Bible.

If you honestly look at nature, as revealed by truthful science, it is our prayer that you will recognize that God has given you a choice: You can pretend that God does not exist, hiding behind the deception that you hope will permit you to continue to live a life of sin; or you can acknowledge the truth that God exists, God designed, God created, God continues to rule and God will hold each of us accountable for our choices. “For since the creation of the world His invisible attributes are clearly seen, being understood by the things that are made, even His eternal power and Godhead, so that they are without excuse, because, although they knew God, they did not glorify Him as God, nor were thankful, but became futile in their thoughts, and their foolish hearts were darkened. Professing to be wise, they became fools, and changed the glory of the incorruptible God into an image made like corruptible man and birds and four-footed animals and creeping things.” (Romans 1:20-23)

Mount St. Helens

The Eruption: Mt. St. Helens in Washington State erupted on May 18, 1980, giving us an exciting view into creation. It lost 1300 feet of summit elevation as one-half a cubic mile of rock and ice was blown off the top of the mountain. Three-eighths of a cubic mile, or three-quarters of the landslide material, flowed down into the Toutle River, located just west of the volcano. One-eighth of a cubic mile, or one-quarter of the landslide material, slipped down into Spirit Lake, located just to the north of the volcano.

Mudflow: A mudflow eroded a canyon system up to 140 feet deep in the headwaters of the north fork of the Toutle River Valley. Scientists expect that a canyon like this should develop slowly over thousands or millions of years. Isn’t it amazing what God can do in a short time? This canyon is called the little “Grand Canyon of the Toutle River.” It is a one-fortieth scale model of the real Grand Canyon. Geologists might think that the little creeks that flow through the head-waters of the Toutle River created this canyon over an extended period of time, except for the fact that they observed this happening very rapidly.

Peat: Peat and the first stages of coal are commonly believed to take thousands of years to form. Peat has already formed on the bottom of Spirit Lake proving that this process can take a relatively short time. The bark and limbs from the trees settle to the bottom of the lake along with volcanic ash which decays and makes the peat. The layer of peat in Spirit Lake is already several inches thick. Forests: There appears to be an entire forest planted at the bottom of Spirit Lake. Scuba divers headed by Dr. Harold Coffin have investigated the log mass floating on Spirit Lake. They discovered that the trees get water logged and plant themselves upright (the root end being the heaviest) in the bottom of Spirit Lake. Dr. Coffin found similar conditions when he went to Yellowstone to look at the petrified forest. Those trees also had no root base. The roots are typically about three feet long. Could God have uprooted and replanted the Yellowstone forest during the flood?

Summary: Evolutionist theories of an old earth continue to be eroded with the evidence produced by Mt. St. Helens. Many so-called scientists are now confronted with more evidence which is inconsistent with their theories. Many of the events which these scientists believe require millions of years to evolve, we have seen occur since May 18, 1980. In the beginning God created the heaven and the earth. (Genesis 1:1) For in six days the LORD made heaven and earth, the sea, and all that in them is. (Exodus 20:11a)

Other Studies

Shrinking Sun: Since 1836, 100 different observers at Royal Greenwich and U.S. Naval observatories have made direct visual measurements which show that the diameter of the sun is shrinking at the rate of one-tenth of one percent every century, or about 5 feet each hour. Using the most conservative data, had the sun existed one million years ago, it would have been so large and it would have heated the earth so much that no life could have survived.

Atmosphere is Stable: Who is behind all of the reports concerning ozone depletion? Since freon and related chlorofluorocarbon molecules weigh from four to eight times as much as air, how do they get into the upper layers of the atmosphere (10 to 25 miles above the earth’s surface) to destroy ozone? Some scientists believe that chlorides from CFCs are the culprits destroying the ozone. How, then, do we explain that chloride is being created by sea water evaporation at an estimated rate of 600 million tons per year, and Mount Erebus in Antarctica has been producing 1000 tons of chloride daily since at least 1972? This volcano alone releases 50 times more chloride annually than an entire year’s production of CFCs. It is located 6 miles upwind of McMurdo Sound, where Antarctic ozone measurements are made. How do we explain the results of a 10 year study concluded in 1985 by the National Cancer Institute that showed the amount of ultraviolet-B reaching the earth actually decreased by an average of 0.7 percent per year?

Why do reports of the dangers of CFCs and other doomsday scenarios begin with “Experts predict,” “Based on current trends,”, etc., but fail to justify them with any facts? The media scientists warning us of global warming are the same people who, 25 years ago, were warning us of an impending ice age. Realistic scientists, the data-collecting and data-measuring scientists, do not come to these worrisome conclusions. They are finding the atmospheric conditions surprisingly stable. But their conclusions are of little interest to the news media. Summary: Evidence supports a young earth; yet evolutionists, while professing to be wise, hang on to their disproven theories.

Special Creation

Historically, it has been the western, Christian world that has given rise to the greatest scientific achievements. Why? … God commanded Adam to “subdue” and “have dominion over” the creation. It is this creationist mindset which has proven to be the scientifically fertile one. But evolutionists continue to say that creationism is just ‘religion’.

Many of the world’s most outstanding and productive scientists have been creationists both Biblically and scientifically. Examples: Isaac Newton, Johann Kepler, Blaise Pascal, Galileo, Michael Faraday, Samuel Morse, George Washington Carver, Gregor Mendel, Louis Pasteur and so on. “Know ye that the LORD he is God: it is he that hath made us, and not we our-selves; we are his people, and the sheep of his pasture.” (Psalms 100:3) U.S. Declaration of Independence: “We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are CREATED equal, that they are endowed by their CREATOR with certain unalienable rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness.”

Creation Is a Cornerstone of the Foundation of this Nation! Can We See Truth from Science? Science is based on observation and experimentation. But, scientists are always discovering something new which forces them to revise or overhaul their theories. Scientists NEVER DO KNOW how much they DON’T KNOW. They never have all the facts. You can only arrive at the truth if you possess ALL the facts. Thou art worthy, O Lord, to receive glory and honor and power: for thou hast created all things, and for thy pleasure they are and were created. (Revelation 4:11)

God’s Grand Design: As the archaeologist proceeds with his “dig,” he will readily identify pieces of pottery, tools and other items as being “man made”. He will easily see in these things the evidence of DESIGN, and thus he will distinguish them from other materials which occur naturally. Likewise, many features of our universe will convince the unprejudiced mind of their inherent design. Consider the dance of the honeybee directing others to the new nectar source. Think of the gorgeous rings of Saturn; billions of bits of matter orbiting in impeccable formation.

What about spiral galaxies and binary stars? And when we look within our bodies, we find similar evidences of design. Like the thymus gland in our immune system which produces a group of “killer cells” that recognize each of the hundreds of millions of “antigens” found in nature. Don’t these observations compel the open minded person to conclude they must be the result of special creation?

What About Homology? Perhaps the most persuasive evolutionist argument has been that of Homology. Similar structures, such as the arms of apes and man, are said to be homologous and to evidence a common ancestor. But now, molecular biologists know these structures are specified by DIFFERENT genes. Thus the evidence is actually for a common DESIGNER, not a common ancestor. For by him were all things created, that are in heaven, and that are in earth, visible and invisible, whether they be thrones, or dominions, or principalities, or powers: all things were created by him, and for him: And he is before all things, and by him all things consist. (Colossians 1:16-17)

Energy & the Law of Entropy: The laws of thermodynamics truly demand SPECIAL CREATION. These two thoroughly proven and universally accepted laws of science are among the most fundamental physical laws of the entire universe. In fact they are often simply called the First and Second Laws.

The First Law says that energy cannot be created nor destroyed. The Second Law states that whenever energy changes forms, though no energy is lost, it becomes more random and less useful. Or put another way, any physical system left to itself tends to move spontaneously toward disorganization. That is to say, ENTROPY (disorder) increases. But evolution is built upon just the very opposite of this fundamental law. That is, evolution requires a spontaneous decrease in randomness and a spontaneous increase in the usefulness of energy throughout the energy conversion process.

Evolution requires the spontaneous evolving and escalating complexity of life from the very simple to the complex. Thus, the two most prominent and time proven laws of science, the laws of thermodynamics, are inconsistent with evolution and require special creation. But What About Mutation? The Law of Biogenesis confirms special creation. This law declares that only life can beget life. Evolution is a theory without a MECHANISM. Natural selection cannot produce NEW genes; it can only select from among pre-existing genes or characteristics.

Mutations are the only proposed mechanism where by new genetic material becomes available for evolution. The catch is, that rarely, if ever, is a mutation beneficial to an organism in its natural environment. Almost all (perhaps all) observable mutations are harmful; many are lethal. No known mutation has ever produced a form of life having both greater complexity and viability than its ancestors. Over eighty years of fruit-fly experiments involving 3000 consecutive generations give absolutely no basis for believing that any natural or artificial process can bring about an increase in complexity and viability. No clear genetic improvement has ever been observed despite the many unnatural efforts to increase mutation rates. Variation within the genetic pool of the particular kind of animal, YES, but the evolution of NEW KINDS of animals, NO! Evolution is a theory entirely without a credible MECHANISM.

Myriads of animal kinds have become extinct within recorded history. None has ever been observed to have evolved. The Law of Biogenesis and the nature of mutations confirm special creation. No Fossil Evidence: The fossils which have been found do not support evolution. Rather, the fossil evidence confirms special creation. At the time Charles Darwin published his works, there simply had not been enough excavating by paleontologists to say “yea” or “nay” to his claims. But today, some 120 years or so later, it’s a different story. Now the evidence is in and it shows that life burst forth suddenly in COMPLETED forms.

The so-called oldest rocks reveal no trace of any evolutionary ancestors. The intermediate forms or transitional forms on which evolution so depends for confirmation of its theory, are simply not there. The missing links are still missing. There is abundant fossil evidence now available. The fossils confirm special creation. Evidence for Creation: Dr. Louis Bounoure, a prominent Swiss scientist, summed it up rather succinctly when he stated, “Evolution is a fairy tale for grownups! The theory has helped nothing in the progress of science. It is useless.” The truth is that science disproves any theory of a slowly evolving earth, again confirming special creation.

Polonium Radio Haloes: Tiny specks of radioactive material encased in granite bedrock have produced small spherical discolorations. This radioactive material, Polonium 218, has a very short “half- life” of only 3 minutes. This means it would be EXTINCT within a few hours. But bedrock must be solid for Polonium 218 to make these distinctive haloes. Thus, trillions of tiny polonium radio haloes prove that the earth’s bedrocks were instantly and miraculously created, or miraculously cooled within a very few hours so that these distinctive polonium haloes would be formed before the radioactive materials became extinct. Statistical Simulations: Scientists have tried to create statistical models which support evolution. But, the laws of statistical probability mandate special creation.

Evolution totally fails under statistical “modeling”. It turns out there are just not enough possible interactions between particles in the whole known universe to satisfy the infinitesimally remote probability which evolution is built upon. Evolution is the longest “Long Shot” one could possibly bet on. The impossibly remote statistical odds are often obscured by the introduction of a bogus time frame, that is, billions and billions of years.

Most dating methods show the earth to be less than 10,000 years old. But the mind boggling impact of the introduction of such immense and phony time periods tends to obscure the insurmountable character of the odds that do exist regardless of the time span. Sir Fred Hoyle, a prominent British scientist, was heard to say “Imagine a tornado sweeping through a junk yard, and as it passes on its way, there in its wake is a brand new Boeing 747 jumbo jet, which of course, has been fashioned and assembled by random chance out of the junk yard.” Even if it were theoretically possible, the odds are so preposterously remote as to be equivalent to zero.

Evolution has flatly failed under many attempts at statistical simulation. The laws of statistical probability prove special creation. “The fool hath said in his heart, there is no God. They are corrupt, they have done abominable works, there is none that doeth good.” (Psalms 14:1) In less than 10,000 Years: Most dating methods favor a young earth and SPECIAL CREATION. The evolution theory requires billions of years to achieve even a ghost of a statistical chance. But, most dating methods point toward a creation less than 10,000 years ago.

Atmospheric Gasses: The decay of uranium and thorium release helium into the earth’s atmosphere. There is no known means by which large amounts of helium can escape from the atmosphere. Based solely upon the production of helium from the decay of uranium and thorium, the earth’s atmosphere could not have formed more than 40,000 years ago.

 Magnetic Field: Direct measurements of the earth’s magnetic field over the past 140 years show a steady and rapid decline in its strength. The half-life of the earth’s magnetic field is about 1400 years. This decay pattern is consistent with the theoretical view that there is an electrical current inside the earth which produces the magnetic field. If this view is correct, then 25,000 years ago the electrical current would have been so vast that the earth’s structure could not have survived the heat produced.

Oil Gushers: Abnormally high gas and oil well pressures within relatively permeable rock imply that these fluids were formed or encased less than 10,000 years ago. Otherwise, natural leakage would have reduced their pressure to a level far below what it is today.

Carbon-14 Dating: C-14 is produced in the atmosphere 30% faster than the rate at which it decays. When this data is used, instead of the unwarranted evolutionary assumption that the rate of production is equal to the rate of decay, computed dates of all the organic materials fall within 10,000 years. Further, if the atmosphere really were old as evolutionists want to believe, by now these two rates would be in equilibrium. The disparity in the two rates also confirms that the earth’s atmosphere is young.

Moon Dust: According to NASA’s estimates, moon dust which settles on the moon’s surface should be a mile deep, if the moon is billions of years old. So, NASA designed the Lunar Lander with landing gear pods that would not sink into the dust. What they found was that the moon dust was only an inch thick. Based on their own formulas, that inch of dust would date the moon as only 6000 years old, not the billions of years they had used in their design calculations.

Decay of the Speed of Light: Two Australian scientists have produced some impressive data indicating the speed of light is not constant as we have all been taught, but is actually decreasing. The speed of light may have been ten million times faster at one time. Thus, the light from the most distant star may have arrived the same afternoon God made it. Further, because radiometric dating methods are physically tied to the speed of light, recalculation of these dates using a decaying speed of light results in data that clearly indicates a young earth. As Daniel reveals, in the end times, knowledge will increase. (Daniel 12:4)

Scripture Specifies Special Creation: The Holy Bible also clearly confirms special creation. Holy Scripture consistently states that God CREATED. The exact nature of this form of language precludes any possibility that God allowed our universe to evolve. For God to say that He “created” is to say that he DID NOT ALLOW it to evolve. In fact, the Hebrew word used in Genesis 1:1 (“In the beginning God created . . .”) is the word “bara”, which means to create out of nothing. The flawless manner in which all Bible prophecies are fulfilled in their appointed times proves that the text in which they are embedded is the authentic WORD OF GOD.

The Almighty Creator alone commands those legions of atoms so that they show up in the right places at the right times, turning Bible prophecies into history. God’s own Word, the Bible, clearly demonstrates special creation. His glory and greatness shine brightly in all He has made. The reason and need for redemption is the FALL of a perfect creation. I CAN confirm the special creation and Genesis Flood by means of evidence, so that I CAN trust the parts of Scripture that I CANNOT directly verify.

Would a PERFECT God resort to trial and error to bring all things into being? Would a LOVING God use pain, struggle and death to make living things? If we are accidents of evolution what just claim does God have to our obedience? But, BECAUSE HE made every particle of our being His rule IS JUST. Let us wipe away the dingy cobwebs of evolution! Let His excellent creation shine forth in all its great brilliance! We owe our existence to His creation.

I encourage you to believe in His Son, whom He sent to redeem His fallen creatures, as He asks and commands (1 John 3:23). For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish but have everlasting life. (John 3:16) For he made him to be sin for us, who knew no sin; that we might be made the righteousness of God in him. (2 Corinthians 5:21) Jesus said, “Verily, Verily, I say unto thee, except a man be born again, he cannot see the kingdom of God.” “I am the way, the truth, and the life; no man cometh unto the Father, but by me.” (John 3:3,14:6)

As we approach the second coming of Jesus Christ, the great falling away is becoming more evident. The professing Christian church is becoming more like the world and the ways of the world are appearing within the church, first by trickery and deceit and ultimately as readily accepted church practice. We must remain steadfast, following Jesus and the written word, refusing to be led away with the error of the wicked. We must approach unity with caution, desiring unity brought about by the Holy Spirit among believers, while refusing to unite with the world, the ways of the world, deceivers and antichrists. Pray that you will know the difference. Unity brought about by man is suspect. Any effort to achieve unity which does not insist that Jesus is the only way, but instead unites believers with unbelievers, is not of the Holy Spirit. Any effort to achieve unity which does not insist that you forsake sin and live a holy life consecrated to Jesus is fatally compromised. “Wherefore come out from among them, and be ye separate, saith the Lord, and touch not the unclean thing; and I will receive you” (II Corinthians 6:17)

Jesus is the Focus

The church has one focal point and that is Jesus Christ. The church has one direction and that is to follow Jesus Christ. The church has one purpose and that is to serve Jesus Christ. We are to serve Him here and our service will continue up there. We have a book called the “Bible” which is the standard that we are to lay all we do up against. We must not rewrite the Bible to fit our lifestyle. Rather, we are to conform our lifestyle to what the Bible says. Based upon these elements of our faith, let’s examine what is going on in the church today. Or, should we say, what is going on in the buildings that we call the church today? The church (“eklesia” or “called out ones”) is and always will be the church. The building sometimes houses the church, but not always. The church is not a denomination, although some of the church will assemble in denominations and some will assemble in non-denominations. But then you can get so non-denominational that you become a denomination of non-denominationals.

The church is the body of Christ, made up of believers that cross denominational boundaries. The church has its very existence in Jesus, not in idols, colleges, hospitals, buildings, athletic teams or size. The focus of the church is upon Jesus and reaching the lost. However, when we look into the buildings that we so readily call the church, we are finding many New Age teachings, worldly ways, practices of witchcraft and sleep, creeping in, polluting, deceiving, and shifting our focus away from total dependence upon our Lord Jesus Christ. When we think about the church, our thoughts seem to go first to white buildings with a steeple on top and a bell. Or, if we have gained some theological knowledge, we might think of the church of the book of Acts. However, we might better turn our eyes upon Jesus, and try to understand His view of the church. And rather than to focus upon a building, we should instead take to our heart the message He has for His church. In particular, the church ought to hear, as Jesus commands, the messages He sent to the seven churches of the book of Revelation (Revelation Chapters 2 and 3).

Seven Letters

Some believe that each of the seven churches represent a different church age. That would place us in the Laodicean age, and that would make sense because Jesus described the church in Laodicea as “lukewarm”. Others believe that the seven churches do not represent seven ages, but seven different kinds of churches in this age. And that would also make sense because we see the lukewarm gathering together in a building with a steeple, and we see legalists gathering together in a building with no steeple, and we see those who have lost their first love gathering together when it’s not too inconvenient, and we see people who hate this or that gathering together to discuss someone else’s error, but too often blinded to their own error. But, sometimes we find all of these folks gathering together, in the same building, and they are called the church. And this is why others believe that the seven churches do not represent seven different church gatherings, past or present, but seven different peoples that are found within the church of every age. Perhaps all of the above make sense. But, rather than relying upon other men’s opinions, we should look at Jesus’ opinion, as stated in His word. Let’s look at the seven churches described in Revelation Chapters 2 and 3. And when we do so, let us not be too quick to discard what is written in red, simply because it does not fit into other men’s theories of interpretation.

Church at Ephesus:

Revelation 2:1-7 This is a church that had it all together. They had patience and discernment and could not stand evil. And they also used a spiritual polygraph on some who said they were apostles. And they correctly found them to be liars. This church labored in the name of Jesus and hast not fainted. You cannot get a much better report than this. But what else did Jesus say? “Nevertheless I have somewhat against thee, because thou hast left thy first love. Remember therefore from whence thou art fallen, and repent, and do the first works; or else I will come unto thee quickly, and will remove thy candlestick out of his place, except thou repent” (Revelation 2:4-5). Jesus was warning that the first love was more important than any of the surface works that were being done. The most important SIGN OF THE CHURCH is that it has intact it’s first LOVE. The church at Ephesus did have that love . . . at one time. And then, as time progressed, and as their works mounted, the church left its first love. When our works, no matter how good and Nobel, become a substitute for that intimate relationship with Jesus, we then are beginning that slow walk away from our first love. The love did not leave the church. Sadly, the church left the first love. My friend it is up to you. Church leader it is up to you. If you have left your first love, Jesus tells you what to do “repent and do the first works.”

Church at Smyrna:

Revelation 2:8-11 What is this tribulation thing that is going on? “Be thou faithful unto death and I will give you a crown of life?” Wait a minute. Isn’t there an easier way? Jesus said “fear none of those things which thou SHALT suffer” (2:10). Jesus makes it sound like suffering comes with church membership. (Like in China and so many other parts of the world is the church in this nation somehow exempt from these words?) Did you notice that Jesus did not say to this church which faced persecution and would suffer, “repent”? Could it be that when you are suffering, prayer and repentance are already the topic of conversation? Jesus said their reward is a crown of life. I ask you my friend, are you willing to pay the price? The SIGN OF THE CHURCH is that those who are members will suffer.

Church at Pergamos:

Revelation 2:12-17 You talk about a church in a tough neighborhood. This is a church which was on Satan’s doorstep (“I know where thou dwellest . . . where Satan’s seat is”). And yet Jesus in verse 13 commends them, noting that “thou holdest fast my name and hast not denied my faith.” We talk a lot about faith and what we would do if we were tested. Here is a church where Antipas, “my faithful martyr,” was slain. This church had faith and held His name. But notice that a false gospel was residing in this church. In fact two groups had come in and were teaching false doctrines: the doctrines of Balaam and of the Nicolaitanes. Now the church at Ephesus had hated the deeds of the Nicolaitanes and uncovered the false apostles. But here we find these false doctrines were permitted in the church. Pergamos was a city of wealth and corruption. Jesus said that Satan’s seat, or his throne, was there. This was a tough place to build a church. How does this speak to us today? If your church gathering is located in an area which is upon Satan’s doorstep, you will have, not might have, the modern Balaams and Nicolaitanes, bringing their false doctrine and a pocket full of money to teach you some NEW gospel that does not line up with the word of God. We pray for you shepherds, that you stand strong. And if false teachings have entered in, REPENT and you will be rewarded with hidden manna and a white stone with a new name (verse 17). This SIGN OF THE CHURCH is that wolves will come in sheep’s clothing. And think about it did they have to first kill a sheep to get the clothes?

Church at Thyatira:

Revelation 2:18-29 This is a church that was very active. Works, and Charity (love) and Service and Faith, and Patience, and more WORKS. Big works at the end. This was a works oriented church. But, they were so busy working at WORKS that they had not used discernment at all, and in one of their teaching programs had allowed a self-made Prophetess to teach. And not only did she teach, she was a teacher of spiritual adultery and caused them to commit spiritual fornication. Jesus gave her time to repent. And she did not. And the most tragic thing is that she will take many with her into her bed of false teaching and man-made feel good doctrines of soulish experiences. Now many of you might say, “not me”, because you don’t let women teach and so that solves the problem. But is it so simple? If it were that easy, so many churches where women are not allowed to speak, teach, or preach would not have this very problem. Yet, they still have teachers (men) who have this perverse and seductive pillow prophet teaching that which causes them to eat things sacrificed to idols. This seductive leading away is not about women teachers compared to men teachers. It is about perverted and ear-tickling teaching. The answer once again is to repent. The SIGN OF THIS CHURCH is perverted teaching, but to him who overcomes, power over nations (2:26).

Church at Sardis:

Revelation 3:1-6 This is a church that had a reputation that they were alive. But Jesus knew they were really nearly dead. And what life they had was fading away. History shows us that the richest man living at that time was Croesus. And he lived and reigned in Sardis. The church was built on the doorstep of wealth and wealth can and usually does influence the preaching in a church. The church that gets caught up in the world, and the cares of this world, will not know when Christ is coming. And, one by one, what the church has will fade away. And all that will remain is a church-shaped coffin, full of dead bodies. But still, there are going to be some (3:4) that will walk with Him in white raiment. These are those whose names will not be blotted out of the book of life (3:5). We do not find faith mentioned to this church. And it may well be that the wealth had replaced the faith. Know, however, that wealth is not the problem. It is the reliance on wealth that becomes the problem. And soon, the wealth controls you, instead of you controlling the wealth. The SIGN OF THIS CHURCH is the question, WHO or WHAT is in control?

Church at Philadelphia:

Revelation 3:7-13 This is a church with an open door. A church that no man can shut down. And Jesus in verse 9 promises “I will make them know that I have loved thee.” This was a church that had little strength. Yet, it had powerful love. Love opens doors that cannot be shut. Gossip, backbiting, strife, and your and my sin is exposed by open doors. You cannot darken a room that has an open door. The world can look in to your church and upon your heart when the door is open. And they will worship and bow down with you when what they can see through that open door is the love of Jesus in you. The church that has an open door has no fear of being labeled a cult. No, all can look in and see its inward parts. The church that is built on the love of GOD may be small or it may be large. Love is not measured in numbers. And we should not expect that the God of yesterday and today, who was not real impressed with David’s numbering the people, is any more impressed today. For the church that is built upon love, Jesus promises (3:12), He will make them pillars holding up the temple of GOD. The SIGN OF THIS CHURCH is up over an open door.

Church at Laodicea:

Revelation 3:14-22 The City of Laodicea had a couple of things going for it. First of all, it was a banking center and second it was also the home of a famous medical school. Today, this city is in complete ruins. Laodicia was the city of people’s rights (“laodicea” means people’s rights “let’s vote on it”). And the church followed along, bending to the way of their surroundings, to the point that no matter how hard they tried, they could not heat up a cold congregation. We might say that with great effort, they maintained about 60 . And Jesus warns, in verse 16, that because of lukewarmness “I will spew thee out of My mouth.” (Now, maybe some in the lukewarm church will mistake this for the rapture, and will wonder why they only got to the front sidewalk, and wonder why they smell so bad.) But for those who refuse to follow any doctrine which explains away Jesus’ words (I Timothy 6:3), the call is to be zealous and to be different than the church of Laodicea. Let us today refuse to be the church of relative righteousness, refusing to be comforted because we believe we are more righteous than our relatives, and friends, and other churches, comparing ourselves to others, but not comparing ourselves to the righteousness which the word of God establishes as the standard. Let us not join the ranks of those who will be told by Jesus that they are wretched and miserable and poor, and blind and naked (3:17). Well so much for comparative theology. Jesus tells them that they need His gold and His clothing and His eyesalve that they can see. Folks, it is not by accident that we are compared to the Laodicean church today. We put our faith in the medical community and the banking institutions and VISA and Master charge and all the other neat banking things. In verse 20, we find Jesus standing at the door and knocking, while the church is forming a committee to elect someone to open the door. He tells this church to repent and overcome and sit with Him in His throne. THE SIGN OF THIS CHURCH is that we have always done it this way, and we will continue to do it this way because everyone says that we are okay and most of all, it’s comfortable.

Be an Overcomer

When we look at the seven churches, we can choose to see seven church ages, with six of them past. But, instead, we can open our eyes and ears and hearts, and look to see if we find a noticeable reflection of our own lives. I would pray that you would go to the word, to the book of Revelation, and let GOD speak to you about where you are with Him, revealing to you if you are in one of these churches, and make sure you are an overcomer with Him. Now if we have considered seriously the seven letters which Jesus wrote to His church, we might discover that many of the things which are creeping into the church are worldly ways and adulterous practices disguised as fun and amusement. Consider the following practices which the church is fast grabbing hold of practices commonplace in the world, but that are not of God. Do These Belong in the Church?

Harlequin: Definition: Name of a devil, or troop of demons, a comic pantomime character, usually masked, dressed in colored tights and bearing a wooden sword or magic wand; a buffoon.

Buffoon: Definition: Jester, one who makes a practice of amusing others by tricks, odd gestures and postures, jokes, etc.; a clown; a jester; hence one given to undignified joking.

Clown: Definition: a clumsy boorish fellow; a jester; joker; buffoon; to act in jesting or grotesque manner, as a clown. Magician: Definition: one skilled in magic; an entertainer performing tricks of illusion and deception; an enchanter.

Magic: Definition: pertaining to sorcery, the art of producing effects by seemingly superhuman control over the powers of nature; sorcery; enchantment; any power or influence that proves irresistible or extraordinary; the use of legerdemain to create illusions or perform tricks.

Legerdemain: Definition: slight of hand; a deceptive performance which depends on dexterity of hand, usually magic or juggling; trickery; deception.

Legerdemainist: Definition: one who practices sleight of hand; a juggler or magician.

Society may try to change the name for us, but the church must continue to recognize these practices as witchcraft and an abomination to our Lord: “There shall not be found among you any one that maketh his son or his daughter to pass through the fire, or that useth divination, or an observer of times, or an enchanter, or a witch, or a charmer, or a consulter with familiar spirits, or a wizard, or a necromancer. For all that do these things are an abomination unto the LORD: and because of these abominations the LORD thy God doth drive them out from before thee.” (Deuteronomy 18:10-12). “But fornication, and all uncleanness, or covetousness, let it not be once named among you, as becometh saints; Neither filthiness, nor foolish talking, nor jesting, which are not convenient: but rather giving of thanks.” (Ephesians 5:3-4) We are not to learn the ways of the world (Jeremiah 10:1) or to love the ways of the world or the things in the world. “Love not the world, neither the things that are in the world. If any man love the world, the love of the Father is not in him. For all that is in the world, the lust of the flesh, and the lust of the eyes, and the pride of life, is not of the Father, but is of the world.” (I John 2:15-16). Just remember we are in this society but not of it. Jesus prayed to the Father for His disciples and for each of us: “I do not pray that You should take them out of the world, but that You should keep them from the evil one. They are not of the world, just as I am not of the world.” (John 17:15-16). You can search through the Bible and you will not find a Christian clown, magician or deceptionist. Yet, we are letting them into the church and into our lives, under the guise of innocent fun. There is nothing innocent about Satan. We are deceiving our children and ourselves if we look at these things as innocent fun. God says we are to be a separate, holy people unto Him. We are not to take part in the customs and traditions of the heathens. We cannot allow these abominations to pollute our ways. Changing the name does not cut it, witchcraft is still witchcraft and we remain accountable to God for things we allow. “Then said Jesus to those Jews which believed on him, if ye continue in my word, then are ye my disciples indeed; and ye shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you free.” (John 8:31-32)

 VeriChip Microchip Implants Cause Fast-Growing, Malignant Tumors in Lab Animals

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE  September 9, 2007

Damning research findings could spell the end of VeriChip?

The Associated Press will issue a breaking story this weekend revealing that microchip implants have induced cancer in laboratory animals and dogs, says privacy expert and long-time VeriChip opponent Dr. Katherine Albrecht.

As the AP will report, a series of research articles spanning more than a decade found that mice and rats injected with glass-encapsulated RFID transponders developed malignant, fast-growing, lethal cancers in up to 1% to 10% of cases. The tumors originated in the tissue surrounding the microchips and often grew to completely surround the devices, the researchers said.

Albrecht first became aware of the microchip-cancer link when she and her “Spychips” co-author, Liz McIntyre, were contacted by a pet owner whose dog had died from a chip-induced tumor. Albrecht then found medical studies showing a causal link between microchip implants and cancer in other animals. Before she brought the research to the AP’s attention, the studies had somehow escaped public notice.

A four-month AP investigation turned up additional documents, several of which had been published before VeriChip’s parent company, Applied Digital Solutions, sought FDA approval to market the implant for humans. The VeriChip received FDA approval in 2004 under the watch of then Health and Human Services Secretary Tommy Thompson who later joined the
company’s board.

Under FDA policy, it would have been VeriChip’s responsibility to bring the adverse studies to the FDA’s attention, but VeriChip CEO Scott Silverman claims the company was unaware of the research.

Albrecht expressed skepticism that a company like VeriChip, whose primary business is microchip implants, would be unaware of relevant studies in the published literature.

“For Mr. Silverman not to know about this research would be negligent. If he did know about these studies, he certainly had an incentive to keep them quiet,” said Albrecht. “Had the FDA known about the cancer link, they might never have approved his company’s product.”

Since gaining FDA approval, VeriChip has aggressively targeted diabetic and dementia patients, and recently announced that it had chipped 90 Alzheimer’s patients and their caregivers in Florida. Employees in the Mexican Attorney General’s Office, workers in a U.S. security firm, and club-goers in Europe have also been implanted.

Albrecht expressed concern for those who have received a chip implant, urging them to get the devices removed as soon as possible.

“These new revelations change everything,” she said. “Why would anyone take the risk of having a cancer chip in their arm?”

WARNING FROM THE WATCHMAN
 “Spirit Led, Or Purpose Driven?”

The world system (or any part thereof) cannot and will not tolerate any absolutes or its situational ethics will not rule the day. That is why the war against Christians in the west is ramping up.  Difficult times are coming to America VERY SOON. 

Those who are only purpose driven will not be able to stand the pressure of the events that will dawn upon America. They will discover that purpose is not enough to overcome. A person is needed for that one he or she can safely lean on.  Blessedly, some of those will crack under the pressure and will turn to the only real place of safety IN JESUS-the PERSON Himself.

Those who are already Spirit led will draw closer to JESUS, trusting Him alone to see them through, or not (as He sees fit) and to use the situations, as He sees fit, to perfect the saints.

There will be gnashing of teeth and expletives galore in those days.

To God Be The Glory-great things He is doing with and among His people the true Church.

God Bless You

The Watchman

Please Pray for our Nation and the Churches in America!!!

Bro Carl & Ruby Sanders

Bro Carl & Ruby Sanders

Behold, the LORD’S hand is not shortened, that it cannot save; neither his ear heavy, that it cannot hear:  —Isaiah 59:1 

My late wife, Ruby, and I have traveled the land with but one ministry, and that is 2 Corinthians 5:18.  “And all things are of God, who hath reconciled us to himself by Jesus Christ, and hath given to us the ministry of reconciliation.” 

We have been in many of your churches and have shared the Love of Christ in all His Glory, just as you have shared your love with us. And I thank you. Some of you have given up your own bedrooms for us, and some of you made it possible for us to stay in motels, and for all of this I am truly grateful.

We have seen salvation’s, rededications and healings. We have witnessed people being freed from secret organizations (masons) We have seen homosexuals set free and cleansed by the blood of Jesus Christ. And what rejoicing when we know that Jesus is, was, and always will be the only healer and deliverer, and that salvation comes in no other way but by HIM.

Ruby and I came to realize that we were not only evangelists, but we were in the truest sense of the word also missionaries.  We were soldiers in God’s army, and as such we have had but one purpose and that is to represent the only real commander in chief that has ever been, and that is our faithful loving master Jesus Christ.  Ruby’s work is completed and she has gone on to be with the Lord, and I must continue on the road of reaching souls until one day I join her and my Lord and Savior across the Jordan River.

 Is it possible that we as Christians have gotten so caught up in the work of ministry and the overwhelming needs of others that we have forgotten who sent us? Has a program or a cause replaced the instructions John 20:21.  “Then said Jesus to them again, Peace be unto you: as my Father hath sent me, even so send I you. ”

We have traveled many miles and crisscrossed much of the country with but one desire and that is to present the warning that Jesus will return as he said, and that time is running out for the devil, and for you also if you are not saved.

 

SPIRITUAL REFUELING STOPS

As we journeyed we tried to visit some special people along the way, wanting to be a blessing, but very often we were the ones that got blessed. In Virginia one of these a man in his nineties talked about how as a young man walking twenty-five miles one way to pray for a woman who was injured in an automobile accident and then walked back only to find out later she was healed. I noticed the pages of his bible were worn and marked up, and he said it was the one we had sent him a year ago. To him the word was that important.

In Portland Oregon there was a special ninety-five year old women who blessed us with her command of scripture and unbending faith in a God who promised to answer her prayers for her family. We also met her granddaughter who was a prayer warrior like her grandma. They were both such a blessing to Ruby and me. Bryson City, NC was one of those special visits to another saint in her nineties who encouraged us so much. Her conversation about how great it will be when we cross over Jordan. There is a song, “Love lifted me.” Ruby and I went away feeling that song. North Carolina was also home of an eighty year old pastor and his wife who gave hospitality and excitement for ministry a new meaning. Well this has been just a few of our special stops and blessings.

 WARNING FROM THE WATCHMAN

I am often asked in our meetings if technology is evil? I answer that question by saying that I never saw the antichrist in any of the circuits and chips or devices that were developed during my time as an engineer. I then ask the question, Who Needs The Technology? God certainly doesn’t need it because He is omnipresent, omnipotent and omniscient. And that is just for starters.

Has technology brought about a better moral standard in our nation? Has it raised the educational standards of our schools? Has the advent of technology improved the home and given us more time to spend as a family together? Has the Babylonian Idiot Box (television) improved our Home our Church and our time alone with God?

What will you say to God, Mr. Preacher, Mr. Pastor, Mr. Shepherd of the flock when He asks you why you replaced the pulpit on Super Bowl Sunday with a big screen TV and left the Bible closed?  It sounds as if I am against technology, and that is not true. There is one part of the technological design of these devices that is very beneficial, and that is called the off knob, or off switch, and I do suggest you start using it and get back into the word of God, because time is running out, and the choice is up to you. Please heed the warning.

We are in the process of updating our tapes, and they will be available soon. Revelation 13:16-18 is true and the technology is already being implanted. The warnings that we have been sounding for the last decade are coming to pass. The FDA has approved the microchip injection and if you have been watching the news and reading the newspapers you have seen that the Mexican Government has required many of its employees to receive the Chip. Well that couldn’t happen here could it?

THIS IS ONE MORE OF THOSE SIGNS

US ADOPTS NATIONAL ID: HOMELAND SECURITY NOW IN CHARGE OF REGULATIONS FOR ALL US STATES DRIVERS LICENSES AND BIRTH CERTIFICATES.

A massive US intelligence Reform bill weighing in at over three thousand pages passed all the hurdles to become law. 

Beginning in 2005, the Department of Homeland Security will issue new uniformity regulations to all states requiring that all drivers’ licenses and birth certificates meet federal standards.

Added to currently existing Federal laws and Supreme Court Rulings American Citizens, when born, will be issued a Social Security Number that will be included on their Birth Certificate, along with DNA biometric markers. All birth certificates will be registered in a Federal Government Data Base maintained by the Department of Homeland Security. No child will be allowed enrollment to schools or be entitled to either state or Federal Government benefit programs without first presenting a certified Homeland Security registered Birth certificate.

Driver’s Licenses will also contain DNA biometric markers and include holders Social Security Number.  Federal Law Enforcement authorities have the right to request Identification from any American citizen for any reason, and at any time as not being violations of their, the citizens, constitutionally protected rights.

Folk’s, never before in History have the words of Benjamin Franklin been so correct when he stated, “people willing to trade their freedom for temporary security deserve neither and will lose both”.

Today December 9, 2004 will be one of those moments in time that future historians will look back on, and pinpoint as being the day that the United States of America, as it was founded by it’s forefathers, ceased to exist. 

 The Word of God is very clear, and God is not the author of confusion. The Word tells us what it will be like in the last days. My friend, all you have to do is look around you. Jesus Christ is still ready, willing and able to save your soul. All you have to do is ask Him.

The Watchman

We at Trumpet Ministries thank you for your interest in us. It is God who meets our needs, working thru people like you and others who have received our tapes and literature, and have responded. We send requested material and bibles into prisons and foreign country’s and do not expect a financial response. There are also those who cannot help because of age or physical condition. We do ask that if you are one of those chosen to help others, and help meet the needs of this ministry, that you would pray and ask the Lord what you should do, and then respond.

 Please pray for me as I continue to travel in search of souls for the Kingdom.

 In Christ

For the past seventeen years we have been sounding a warning to America. We have  traveled across the land obeying the call. Trumpeting the need to be prepared in righteousness to walk in a right relationship with Jesus. Refusing to buy into the world system. We sound the trumpet of warning that God’s judgement is at hand for not only this nation but also all the world. Time is running out and the events that we have warned of are even now coming upon us. You and you alone will have to make that decision. We have a great concern and even weep as we pray. Jesus is standing with outstretched arms saying come unto me. Tribulation has been promised in God’s word and salvation by receiving Jesus Christ is your only escape.  Please listen to these words deception is all around us but Jesus said “Matthew 24:4  ¶And Jesus answered and said unto them, Take heed that no man deceive you.” There is a great deception that is sweeping across America. This end time delusion has caused many to turn to man or a system or even one of many religions for an answer. The bible tells us however that we must be holy and focused in Jesus as the only way that you can escape being deceived by Confusion and the deception that is brought about by manology (mans opinion). We are continuing to warn and alert the church as to the requirement for holiness. This is not an option but it is a requirement. This message is another in that direction.

I Am Part Of The Fellowship
Of The Unashamed

His holiness is a requirement, not an option.

We will look at the thread that bound holy men of old together from Genesis to Revelation this thread held them together and drew them across time towards the greatest event in all of history. We will also look at his presence. It was his presence that could take an ordinary man and turn him into a dedicated man of God. These men who were willing to lay down their lives for the sake of others and take their place in the honor roll of the saints in Hebrews chap 11. I want to share with you that after all this the scripture tells us “Hebrews 11:39  And these all, having obtained a good report through faith, received not the promise:

40  God having provided some better thing for us, that they without us should not be made perfect. “                        

In the thread and the presence of God both, there was a pointing towards that great event in history that had as it’s beginning the birth of the messiah and has continued until this very day and hour and will continue even past the last day and on into eternity. We sing the song “We have the victory” and you can be assured that we do have that victory. It is not a victory of emotions or religious hype. It is a victory of enduring the cross and the suffering and the pain that precedes that final victory. What did Jesus say “John 16:33 These things I have spoken unto you, that in me ye might have peace. In the world ye shall have tribulation: but be of good cheer; I have overcome the world.”  He has overcome the world and so if He is in me and I am in Him then I can overcome the world and you know what? So can you, so now just do it! This might not fit in your packaged theology but it works! And I know it works because I found it in the bible and Jesus said it.

In this article we are going to look at a relationship. What was it that caused dedicated fisherman to leave their boats and nets and in one case at least a shocked and bewildered father standing in the boat-  (Matthew 4:21  “And going on from thence, he saw other two brethren, James the son of Zebedee, and John his brother, in a ship with Zebedee their father, mending their nets; and he called them.

22  And they immediately left the ship and their father, and followed him.”)  to come and follow a man. This was not just any man but it was in fact God in the flesh that had come as a suffering servant to rescue his creation. God would now write in the heart of man his commandments. The writings in stone would now be placed in the hearts of men, (“Matthew 5:27  ¶

Ye have heard that it was said by them of old time, Thou shalt not commit adultery: 28  But I say unto you, That whosoever looketh on a woman to lust after her hath committed adultery with her already in his heart.”) this would bring about an intimacy with the creator that was lost in the garden of Eden with the fall of the first Adam and could only be restored with the birth of the second Adam (Jesus Christ). The sole purpose in writing these articles is to     encourage you and build your faith. We are not defeated but we have victory in Christ. If you believe this say AMEN you can even shout it if you want to! This victory is not just lip service but is born out of two very important principles that seem to escape us modern day up to date bible believing blood washed selectively sanctified Christians. Lets let a fellow by the name of Paul give us principle #1.

Principle#1:  Philippians 3:13 ”Brethren, I count not myself to have apprehended: but this one thing I do, forgetting those things which are behind, and reaching forth unto those things which are before, 14  I press toward the mark for the prize of the high calling of God in Christ Jesus.” Paul said “ forgetting those things which are behind, I have underlined behind and forgetting for a very good reason and it is this high maintenance low impact Christians are constantly looking back and remembering the past sins that should have been put under the blood and with repentance should be remembered no more. We have however a fallen angel named the devil that is very good at reminding us of our past. I want to give you a piece of advice if I may. When Satan reminds you of your past just remind him of his future (Isaiah 14:15  “Yet thou shalt be brought down to hell, to the sides of the pit.”) His time is running out and he is well aware of it. Paul also said that he was reaching forth to the things, which are before. We are told not to look back but to press toward that mark for the prize of the high calling of God. Folks that high calling of God is that intimate personal relationship with the Father through his son Jesus Christ.

Principle #2 This is not an instant fast food drive thru relationship it only comes about by spending time with the Father. Jesus spent time with his father. Matthew 4:2  And when he had fasted forty days and forty nights, he was afterward an hungered. He would not start his public ministry without spending that time. We see time and time again he went to the Father. Matthew 26:39  And he went a little further, and fell on his face, and prayed, saying, O my Father, if it be possible, let this cup pass from me: nevertheless not as I will, but as thou wilt.

40    And he cometh unto the disciples, and findeth them asleep, and saith unto Peter,  What, could ye not watch with me one hour?

Jesus spent time in prayer and fasting before he began His public ministry and also during the time of ministry and then we see him spending time in the preparation for the crucifixion the final act that would redeem fallen man. The question that we must ask ourselves then. If it was this important to the Son of God to spend this time and if we claim to be his followers should we not at least spend time with Him?

We find ourselves getting into great discussions about how to pray, when to pray, should I be on my knees or maybe standing up? Do I raise my hands or keep them in my pockets? Should my head be covered or uncovered? Do I use one of the sacred names or just groan? (He can interpret the groanings you know) or maybe I should leave one of the letters out of the name (yes I think that will do it). Well do I pray loud or soft? Shout or whisper? Run, walk or crawl? Laugh or weep?.

Well there is an answer to these very important questions and it is YES to all of the above. If we are spending time with Him not orchestrated by man and His programs you just might do all of the above or maybe none of the above He may just say shut up and listen. You know you can’t talk and listen at the same time and anyway you should listen twice as much as you talk since you have two ears and only one mouth.

I want to give you an example of a man who got his prayers answered big time. Nehemiah 1:4  And it came to pass, when I heard these words, that I sat down and wept, and mourned certain days, and fasted, and prayed before the God of heaven,

Please hear this old watchman and understand these two principles of Holiness.

#1 don’t look back. Luke 9:62  And Jesus said unto him, No man, having put his hand to the plough, and looking back, is fit for the kingdom of God. And principle

#2 We must spend time with Jesus.

CONCLUSION

This may seem to be to simple but it works and that is what counts. If we will follow these simple principles there will be an increase and souls will be added to the kingdom. I asked you to prayerfully consider this message.

I won’t look back, let up, slow down, or back away.  My past is redeemed, my present makes sense.  My future secure.  I am finished and done with low living, light walking, small planning, smooth knees, colorless dreams, tainted vision, mundane talking, cheap giving and dwarf goals.

No longer preeminence, prosperity, position, promotion or popularity.  I don’t have to be first, don’t have to be right.  I don’t have to be recognized.  I don’t have to be praised, regarded or rewarded.

Live by faith, learn on His presence, walk by patience, live by prayer and labor by power.  My face is set.  My gait is fast.  My goal is heaven.  My road is narrow.  My way is rough.  My companions few.  My guide reliable.  My mission clear.

I cannot be bought, compromised, detoured, lured away, turned back, deluded or delayed.

I will not flinch in the face of sacrifice, hesitate in the presence of the adversary, negotiate at the table of the enemy, ponder at the pool of popularity or meander in the maze of mediocrity.

I won’t give up, shut up, let up, until I’ve stayed up, stored up, prayed up, paid up and preached up for the cause of Christ.

This is just a note or reflection of what has been happening in the aftermath of the terrorists attacks on America. It seems like everything is being blamed but we have ignored a very important reality. This nation was founded on Godly principles but very early we turned to be a nation of self seekers and sin entered in. Yes we need to pray for this nation. We need to pray that as a nation we would  repent of 46 million aborted babies. We need  to repent for exporting 95% of the pornography to the world. We need to repent  for calling homosexuality an alternate lifestyle and realize that a soul for eternity is at stake. We need to repent for preaching a soft (no commitment Gospel) to a sin hardened and sick world. We need to repent for ignoring  the cries of the needy  and  making merchandise of the poor while heaping treasures to self. God has spoken through His word and  through the signs that are all  around us.

Matthew 24:3 And as he sat upon the mount of Olives, the disciples came unto him privately, saying, Tell us, when shall these things be? and what shall be the sign of thy coming, and of the end of the world? 4 And Jesus answered and said unto them, Take heed that no man deceive you. 5 For many shall come in my name, saying, I am Christ; and shall deceive many. 6 And ye shall hear of wars and rumors of wars: see that ye be not troubled: for all these things must come to pass, but the end is not yet. 7 For nation shall rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom: and there shall be famines, and pestilences, and earthquakes, in divers places. 8 All these are the beginning of sorrows. 9 Then shall they deliver you up to be afflicted, and shall kill you: and ye shall be hated of all nations for my name’s sake. Folks these things are coming and are already at the door. Let me share with you a psalm with such a promise for us.  Psalms 24:3 Who shall ascend into the hill of the LORD? or who shall stand in his holy place? 4 He that hath clean hands, and a pure heart; who hath not lifted up his soul unto vanity, nor sworn deceitfully. 5 He shall receive the blessing from the LORD, and righteousness from the God of his salvation. 6 This is the generation of them that seek him, that seek thy face, O Jacob. Selah.

We as a nation need to repent and turn from our ways and turn to God with clean hands.

The Watchman

 When did it begin to happen?

Florida the land of sunshine and sandy beaches. You and the bank have a nice home on a solid foundation with a pool in the back yard. This is going to be a great Saturday to just rest and relax and then your wife says *let*s take the kid*s and go to the mall*. You back the car out of the garage and load the family into the car and take a proud look at your house as you drive down the street. You return three hours later to find that the top of your house is below street level and you say How did this happen. What you should ask is When did it begin to happen? You have just been introduced to a feature of the Florida landscape called the SINKHOLE syndrome. Your whole house is now in the basement. Tiny streamlets of acid water have slowly eroded the area under your safe and secure home and then one-day it falls. When did it begin to happen?

The foundation of this nation was established with God as the very brick and mortar that put it together we are a blessed people because of that foundation.

The message is today screaming out from God’s word that the foundations for this nation are severally under attack not from without our borders but from inside right where we live. The threat is much greater then weapons of mass destruction. It is much greater Osama bin Ladin and Saddam Hussein and the North Korean nuclear threat. It is a cancer that has been eating away for many many years. Psalm 11: 2 For, lo, the wicked bend their bow, they make ready their arrow upon the string, that they may privily shoot at the upright in heart. 3 If the foundations be destroyed, what can the righteous do?
So what is the problem? What can be worse then Communism, Atheism , Nazism, and all the rest of the isms? What is this thing that has made us a nation that has murdered forty-six million babies and called it legal? What is this thing that allowed us to export 95% of the pornography to the rest of the world under the mislabel of free speech and yet will not allow prayer in school.?

          The foundation that has been superimposed on this nation of people is HUMANISM. It*s not such a big word but when we break it down it says a whole lot. The definition for Humanism is very simple MILLIONS OF YEARS= MAN IS AUTHORITY. Man is god is what the text books say. The bible says in six days GOD IS AUTHORITY.  

          To destroy Christianity you have to destroy the foundation of God*s word. When The authority of the word is removed then we have the following. Family breakups, Abortion, Racism, Euthanasia, Pornography, and then Homosexual behavior. Tolerance is a word that has been used recently to justify any type of behavior and if you question any of these things you are labeled an Intolerant Christian. We need to be intolerant and disturbing Christians where sin is concerned. We also need to be full of the love of God and reaching out to the lost. We are in a battlefield not a recreation room in our Christian walk.

          Folks, the problems above and the social ills of this nation cannot be solved without going back to the foundation stone of  Genesis 1:1 In the beginning God created the heaven and the earth.  This sounds too simple to work but my friend it does.

          Just answer the following questions and it may give you an idea of where you stand.

#1 Is abortion  OK if the mother is in danger?

#2 Is Homosexuality a genetic problem?

#3 Are Love and tolerance the best responses to a problem?

#4 Is Genetic engineering a way to solve birth defects?

#5 Should the bible be the only guide for determining the rule of
     law in America?

#6 Is Pornography OK as long as it is limited to adults only?

#7 Is Euthanasia a humane way to end suffering?

          Your answers to these questions will determine if your position is secular or bible based.

If you have any questions or we can help you in any way please call or visit our website at www.trumpetministries.net

In Christ,

The Watchman
