February 4, 2012, Sermon Transcript
By Lawrence A. Nowell
1.) “I don’t want to preach about it, how you broke God’s heart, but if we preach to you a little bit longer, if we preach, won’t you listen to God’s heart, God’s heart?”
2.) This is The Obedient Church of God broadcasting throughout the world from
www.theworldtomorrow.org and 1stcenturychristian.com, broadcasting the first century gospel with no additions and without any deletions.
1.) “I don’t want to talk about it, how you broke God’s heart, but if we preach go you a little bit longer, if we preach, won’t you listen to God’s heart, God’s heart, God’s heart?”
3.) “Bon Jour, Paris, France,” 6 p.m. in France; 9 a.m. on the West Coast, and 12 noon on the East Coast. Breakfast time, lunch time, supper time: the perfect time for our spiritual feeding today from The Obedient Church of God.
4.) “We don’t want to have to preach about it, how you broke God’s heart, but if we preach to you a little bit longer, if we preach, won’t you listen to God’s heart, God’s heart?”
5.) That is the true attitude of The Obedient Church of God to teach you with kindness, and to teach you the way of Father and how you are hurting Father’s heart.
6.) Today we have another dynamite sermon, a dynamite teaching. We are going to be teaching how the Bible states that the offshoots of the Worldwide Churches of God and all the other churches of God will be beaten by God, and beaten with many stripes.
7.) We’ll also be naming the ten kings again today because some people keep thinking that Europe alone is going to be the ten kings, and this is patently wrong. So Mr. Lawrence A. Nowell will tell us the ten regions that are being set up and that have been set up.
8.) The Club of Rome set these regions up. In 1942 the U.S. Government planned out these regions. This is something others just do not get in their thick heads, that there are ten regions, not just ten kings. There will be a leader over each region.
9.) Welcome to the Sabbath today on the 4th February, 2012. It is already Shevat 10. Yes, indeed, we celebrate the New Moon Days and yes, indeed, it is a holy day when the East gate of the inner court of the Temple is open and it also opens on God’s Sabbath Days. No one can buy or sell on New Moon Day as is clearly stated in the Bible.
10.) First we want to enter the Throne Room and in order to do so, we do that by prayer and we have prayer before singing the hymns so that we can present our hymns as “the fruit of the sacrifice of our lips.”
11.) For prayer all please rise, all face the north heaven, raise hands with palms forward, head bowed and eyes closed.
12.) “Almighty loving Father, praise, glory, power, and dominion be to you forever and ever and ever and ever throughout the Universe.
13.) “There is no one like you who abounds in love and knowledge. Father, we want to grow up to be like you. Please teach us how to be more and more like you so we can be in your family.
14.) “Thank you for all the things you’ve done for us in the past week. Thank you for all the things we don’t even know about that you’ve done for us this past week.
15.) “Now we ask you to inspire this service, both the hearing and the speaking, and especially inspire the video tapes when they are used so the people can understand through the power of your Spirit.
16.) “Please be with the 100 plus brethren in Pakistan and help them have what they need. They are in a very dangerous area and eight of them were murdered for being Christians four years ago. So we always put that in our prayers to you Father.
17.) “Now, we turn this service over to your hands and ask it all in Yeshua ha Mashiach’s holy righteous name, Jesus Christ, our soon arriving King. Amen.”
18.) Yes, indeed. We have the brethren in Pakistan and that gave us the opportunity to prove to Father that we will keep the Sabbath Day on the seventh day throughout the world. Pakistan is one of the last countries that the sun sets down.
19.) All the other Churches of God, every one of the offshoots of the Worldwide Church of God, break the Sabbath-Day in half the world, and they refuse to repent!!
20.) That’s why Father gave TOCOG the Pakistan Church in order to prove us, to try us, to see what we would do. And TOCOG passed the test.
21.) The Obedient Church of God stands alone against all of the Worldwide Church of God offshoots because they are a bunch of hypocrites and liars, saying they obey God when they move the Sabbath to the sixth-day in half the world since 1883!
22.) We’ve entered the Throne Room so we want to praise God’s name of whom we serve. We serve God with the correct days, God’s appointed Moadim, not Devil days.
23.) Our first hymn is Psalm 135, “Praise God’s Name.” We all sing out.
24.) Next we turn to “Oh Give Thanks Unto the Lord,” Psalm 136, as we give the “fruit of our lips as our sacrifice to God.”
25.) For our third hymn we sing “By the Waters of Babylon,” Psalm 137. We sing this hymn because the United States citizens are now in prison. The whole country is a prison camp. Any person can be locked-up, be interrogated, can be beaten and not have a lawyer, and not go to court ever. We can be taken off the street and locked up, NDAA.
26.) * * *
27.) It has been a week gone by where things are heating up in the Middle East. Israel is going to go on its own, and that’s going to bode very ill for the whole world. It looks like by this Spring or summer Israel will be bombing Iran.
28.) Bombing Iran can draw China in at any time, and draw Russia in at anytime. And that could be the beginning of the end. And this could be how they bring in the New World Order.
29.) After they’ve suffered retaliation, after all this chaos, what will happen is the governments of the world will say, “Yes, we need a strong leader.”
30.) So we are concerned that Israel will launch an attack. Here’s the announcement regarding Iran and Israel: If Iran moves forward any faster, Israel won’t be able to destroy Iran’s nuclear capability. So Israel is going to attack Iran before it reaches the “immunity zone.”
31.) Bear Note: An “immunity zone” means that Iran will have nuclear weapons sequestered away throughout its own country, and on the tips of rockets. A military strike will not able to stop Iran.
32.) Iran is just at the point now where these silos, these underground nuclear facilities that are 260 feet underground, are now at the point of development where once they get past “the immunity zone” (the tipping point), Iran will have nuclear weapons sequestered away through out its own country. [Transcriber’s Note: Wikipedia lists nuclear facilities throughout Iran.]
33.) The United States will deny that it knows anything about Israel’s intentions to attack Iran. But the United States cannot say that it is league with Israel because then Russia and China will have just cause to literally start World War III.
34.) Bear Note: After Israel bombs Iran’s nuclear facilities, all nations will be against Israel.
35.) After Israel bombs Iran, the U. S. is going to deny involvement (and that will fulfill scripture that says all nations will be against Israel.) Don’t try to blame it on rogue Israel and try to avert World War III that way. Keep praying that you will be protected.
36.) By this fall they should work out a peace deal so Israel will be able to have access to the Temple Mount, shared, and that Israel will start the daily sacrifices.
37.) TOCOG believes that the war that will start between Iran and Israel will usher in the New World Order, as “order out of chaos,” their motto says. [Transcriber’s Note: On the reverse side of a United States dollar are the words, “NOVUS ORDO SECLORUM,” the new order of the ages.]
38.) So they’ve got to foment the chaos of a near global world war in order to bring in the New World Order out of chaos. We are certainly living in interesting times, serious times.
39.) We are able to know what to expect by listening to The Obedient Church of God broadcasts, and not all the other Churches of God who’ve got things backward and twisted, and who do listen to our broadcasts and still get it wrong. Unbelievable!
40.) TOCOG goes by the Bible teaching and the more obedience you have, the more wisdom you are given by God.
41.) When they set up the New World Order, it’s going to be ten groups of nations, not just ten kings, but ten groups of nations. The Council of Rome set this all up in 1942.
42.) Albert Pike in 1871 set up how they were going to bring in the New World Order out of chaos. In 1871 he predicted how they would start World War I, how they would start World War II, and how they would start World War III.
43.) World War III is approaching now. It was written in 1871 that World War III will be started by fomenting hatred between the Muslims and the “Christian” nations.
44.) The Illuminatti will foment worldwide division between the anglo-nations and the Arab nations, and we are seeing this happen right now and it is being done deliberately.
45.) Syria will be another state to be overthrown by the U.S.A. (Fifty states have been overthrown by the U.S.A. since World War II.)
46.) Two months ago Libya was another example of a leader being overthrown, and it slowed down the New World Order’s plans because it took 3 months to kill Gadhaffi. Mr. Nowell told us in January that Gadhaffi would not go.
47.) Earlier Mr. Lawrence A. Nowell told everyone that Mubarak of Egypt would leave his office and he told us the exact day Mr. Mubarak would go. He made e-mail communication on January 31st. Mr. Nowell predicted on February 2nd Mubarak would go on February 9th,2011. He On the night of February 9th he was gone.
* * *
48.) The point is that we, The Obedient Church of God, back in 2007 in our first taped video, predicted the return of Christ will be in 2017-2018. Others were saying Christ could back at any time, or Christ would come back in 2012, or he would come back in 2010. Back in 2007 TOCOG told everyone Christ would come back in 2017-2018!
49.) It is just garbage that we can’t know when Christ is coming back, because we are commanded to know. We are commanded to WATCH. The Bible says we don’t know the day or the hour, but why don’t we know the day or the hour?
50.) First of all, we can know the year and we can know the month, but we can’t know the day. Why? We can’t know the day because the crescent moon hasn’t been sighted for that month. We haven’t sighted the crescent moon for the Feast of Trumpets, first day of seventh-month.
51.) At the time Christ arrives, and witnesses actually sight the crescent moon, we will not know the exact day. So we have to wait until that night to sight the moon and if it is not there, or if there is a cloud cover on the 29th night, the time will default to the 30th day of the sixth month.
52.) TOCOG predicted in 2007 that Christ would be returning 2017-2018. The reason is the time will be “cut short” because if those days are not cut short no flesh would be saved alive. Therefore, it can kick back six months to save the world from being blotted out by nuclear war.
53.) We can know the season and we are commanded to watch and to know the signs of Christ’s return. Sailors know the weather signs: “When we see red sky at night, It is the sailor’s delight; Where there is red sky in the morning, Sailor take warning.”
* * *
54.) Mr. Lawrence A. Nowell is warning people right now how they are going to bring in the New World Order. There will be a war where Israel is going to bomb Iran. And the world is going to be against Israel. Then the New World Order will have to be set up so that World War III can be stopped because China and Russia will be trying to back Iran.
55.) And then the city of Jerusalem will be divided and West Jerusalem will go into captivity.
56.) We believe in The Obedient Church of God and our correspondents believe it also that three cities in the United States will be blasted. It would be a terrible thing to have Washington (D. C.), New York and Los Angeles blown off the face of the map. Three ribs would be torn out.
57.) Everyone is mixed up about the ten kings being over ten regions, so here is a list of them:
The first region is going to be Canada, the United States, and Mexico.
The second region is going to be Western Europe, the British Isles, Norway, Sweden, Finland, and Turkey.
The third region is going to be Japan and the Pacific Islands.
The fourth region is going to be Australia, New Zealand, and South Africa.
Region five is going to be Eastern Europe, Russia, Siberia, Mongolia, and Korea.
Region six is going to be Central America, South America and the Caribbean Ilands.
Region seven is being set up now. It includes Egypt, Libya, Tunisia, Algeria, Morocco, the Saudi peninsula, Jordan, Syria, Iraq, Iran, Afghanistan, Pakistan.
Side Bar: We know Damascus is going to be blown off the map. The reason is Damascus is a major link in the transmission of arms and munitions through the Middle East. Damascus is a hub for transporting the weapons and therefore it has to go.
Region eight is Africa with the above North African countries, the South African countries, and perhaps Madagascar. (African nations have their own combine of states on the continent.)
India is region nine by itself and Southeast Asia. India is the second largest nation in world.
Region ten, the largest population in the world, is all of China.
58.) All this is being set up before our eyes, but we don’t see any of it on the news. The news just yaps away at what the movie stars are doing, or what the athletes are doing, what the football players are doing, and they don’t give us any world news.
59.) The soap operas are designed to keep the women distracted and pacified. The sports programs are designed to keep the men pacified, and dumbed- down. Or these jocks who are watching the football games would be out on the streets protesting because they didn’t have anything better to do.
60.) There are only five of the multinational corporations that run all the broadcasts on the stations throughout the United States. There are thousands of stations but there are only five that control the “kit and caboodle” of what we see on television. They are dumbing down the population by keeping the news of the New World Order and the Ten Regions out of the news.
61.) Certain denominations insist that the Ten Kings are going to be Europe alone. One of the denominations is the Living Church of God and they cannot get it through their heads that Europe is a basket case, and Europe will not be the beast power.
62.) The Beast Power will be made up of the Ten Kings over the Ten Regions and it will be led by the United States. After the ten regions are set up, the Beast Power is going to go after three regions.
63.) The United States as the leader of the Beast Power will smash three of the regions of the ten listed. (Three of the horns will be “plucked-up.”)
64.) After the Middle East is adopted into the regions, the United States should attack all of the region. Region seven includes Egypt, Libya, Tunisia, Algeria, Morocco, Saudi peninsula, Jordan and Syria, Iraq, Iran, Afghanistan, and Pakistan.
65.The United States will attack all of the states of region eight, Africa, and the third region, Japan and the Pacific Islands.
66.) Remember the United States bombed Hiroshima and Nagasaki with atom bombs. Now today the bombs are a hundred times more powerful. They are going to be horrific.
* * *
67.) We need to understand how serious disobedience is. TOCOG tells people they will be beaten with stripes, with lashes. It says so in Luke 12:47. “That servant, which knew his lord’s will, and prepared not himself, neither did according to his will,( waits until the sun sets on 6th day in Australia,) shall be beaten with many stripes.”
68.) Some people are saying the churches are just doing their best and they’ll all be in the place of safety and they’ll all be protected by God. NO THEY WON’T!
69.) Luke 12:47 states, “even if you didn’t know any better, you shall be beaten” by going into the Tribulation. Wake up! This is what the Bible says.
70.) Luke 12:48 says, “But he that knew not, and did things worthy of stripes, shall be beaten¼”
71.) Though there many people in the Living Church of God, and in the United Church of God, they are not being told by their leaders that all the offshoots of the Worldwide Church of God are moving the Sabbath day to the sixth-day in half of the world. Also Triumph Prophetic Ministry is moving the Sabbath Day to the sixth-day in half the world.
72.) In Australia and in the Philippines TPM has members, and if those members did not know, they will be beaten anyway. That’s what Luke 12:48 says, unless you scratch it out of your Bible.
73.) The Living Church of God, the United Church of God don’t have any members,yet they have feast sites that are in that half of the world, [Transcriber’s Note: West of the International Date Line], and they all have the Sabbath on the wrong day, the sixth-day of the week! They will be beaten.
74.) What about people who do know, and refuse to change, people in the Living Church of God and people in the United Church of God, both who have received correspondence from Mr. Lawrence A. Nowell. And people likeTriumph Prophetic Ministries who have been witnessed to?
75.) Luke 12:47 again, “That servant who knew his Master’s will,” to observe the seventh-day Sabbath, “but did not do according to his Master’s will” but rather kept the sixth-day for the Sabbath, “shall be beaten with may stripes.”
76.) The law of the Jews by which a wicked man was to be punished was to receive 40 lashes of the whip. Bill Dankenbring will be punished. Bob Thiel will be punished. They will be beaten with many stripes, not exceeding forty, according to the nature of his fault.
77.) “Many” means forty or less. The Jews have 39.
78.) Deuteronomy 25:2 states, “And it shall be, if the wicked man be worthy to be beaten, that the judge shall cause him to lie down, and to be beaten before his face, according to his fault, by a certain number.”
79.) And it signifies the persons who have knowledge, and the means thereof, and don’t act according to that knowledge, shall punished with the greatest severity—“many stripes”-- because they refused.
80.) Church leaders who refuse to obey God’s Bible make up excuses. The most foolish excuse Mr. Lawrence A. Nowell ever heard, was that “Christ will restore all things,” saying that I can wallow in sin until Christ comes back. No! You can’t. No! You can’t wallow in sin!
81.) He who knows to do good and doesn’t do it, to him it is sin. We don’t want to wait until Christ comes back to repent (of our wrong Ways.)
82.) Christ will restore all things, but Elisha will restore all things. Look that one up.
83.) Even if you didn’t know any better, you will be beaten. You need to enquire what God says. Luke 12:47 says you will be beaten.
84.) What if you told the police man that you didn’t look at the sign that said it was a 40 mile zone? You didn’t know any better. You’ll still get the ticket. You were stupid to miss the sign.
85.) People in the world usually have access to a Bible in a motel room. There are Gideon Bibles given away. It’s their fault for not looking into a Bible to see what it teaches and didn’t prepare themselves. Therefore, people are going to be beaten. Wake up! This is what the Bible states!!
86.) All of you off-shoot Churches of God, you are going to be beaten. You are not all going to be one happy party going into a place of safety. No. You’re going into the Tribulation and you’re going to be beaten, beaten. And if you didn’t know any better, you’re still going to be beaten unless you come into the protection and safety of The Obedient Church of God.
87.) Mr. Lawrence A. Nowell is going to “kick it up a notch” because time is running short. All these churches cannot keep their devil days: their Mother-goddess Day, the mother of all gods and goddesses; their Sky Father’s Day, the longest day of the year; and their Turkey-god day, which honors Ra-Osiris that sprang forth from the egg that the Cosmic goose laid. [in Egypt]
88.) Why does the President of the United States pardon a turkey every November? Why doesn’t the President of the U. S. pardon a lamb if we are a “Christian” nation? Obviously, the United States is not a Christian nation, but a pagan nation that celebrates pagan feasts, such as, Christmas when the “fire god” comes down the chimneys in North America.
89.) Also, the United States celebrates Easter, Ishtar with eggs every spring, chocolate bunnies, prolific rabbits. What did rabbits have to do with Christ being beaten to death when he died on a stake? Nothing!! It’s all Satanism.
90.) They are all Satanic Days, all going back 4,000 years. Whether we agree or not, our opinion isn’t going to change the fact. When we die, Turkey-god day will continue from the Egyptian Ra-Os/iris worship whether we say so or not, it’s still going to be the same.
91.) But you are going to be beaten, you will beaten whether you like it or not because Luke 12:47 says so. The disobedient “brats” will be beaten by God when they go through the Tribulation.
92.) All you offshoots of the “Worldwide Church,” you will be beaten with stripes and with a whip and you are going to be going through the Tribulation. No free ride for you. You have to pay for your sins because you have sheer rebellion.
93.) The Worldwide Church of God offshoot members have failed to bring their lives into accordance with the holy book of the Bible where it says in Deuteronomy 12:32 that you are not supposed to add any days. You refuse to follow the admonition in Deuteronomy 12:32.
94.) You know your stubbornness, is along the ways of “witchcraft” because it is sheer rebellion for you to fail to bring your lives into accordance with the Book, your instruction manual.
95.) You are supposed to obey, not only in observing the proper days, but you are supposed to bring every thought captive. In II Corinthians 10:5 we “Cast down imaginations, and every high thing that exalteth itself against the knowledge of God, and bring into captivity every thought to the obedience of Christ.”
96.) We in The Obedient Church of God take every Satanic practice prisoner. We take Turkey-day prisoner; we smash it down, and we make it obey Christ.
97.) We are to cast down reasonings, arguments, every high thing, including the popular holidays on the Roman calendar: the Thanksgiving Day, Mother’s Day, Father’s Day, and moving the Sabbath to the sixth-day in half the world. [Transcriber’s Note: The IDL advanced time 24 hours.]
98.) We are to cast down everything that exalts itself above the laws and ways of God in what we are supposed to do. We are supposed to smash wrong ways down.
99.) God’s Bible is not something we can allow ministers to change and twist. This is all about wrong actions by ministers who Mr. Nowell calls “sinisters.” All of the offshoot Worldwide Churches of God are all “sinisters” because they are espousing Devil Days. They tell their members to have Devil Days. Members become prisoners of their “sinisters” who tell them to observe Devil Days. [Transcriber’s Note: Not celebrating Devil Days is not sinful in God’s sight!]
100.) These “sinisters” allow their members to work on God’s Sabbath in half the world because they tell their people to observe the Sabbath on the sixth-day of the week.
101.) These “sinisters” are driving people straight down into the depths of hell, if they are telling people to disobey God by telling them it is fine to have the Sabbath on the sixth-day until Christ comes back. Members who stick with these “sinisters” will end up in the Lake of Fire. That’s a fact!
102.) The Living Church of God is saying that “it doesn’t matter,” or they are going to lie and say they “don’t have any members in that half of the World. [Transcriber’s Note: West of IDL]” Mr. Lawrence A. Nowell has this this lie in writing from the Living Church of God leaders.
103.) The Living Church of God does have feast sites in Australia when the members meet on the wrong day for the Sabbath. Members can’t allow their “sinisters” to change God’s law, (the fourth commandment) in the Bible.
104.) Ministers are stealing people’s eternal lives. If they shot members in the head, each one would die a mortal death, buy ministers are taking people’s eternal lives away!! The Devil has the ministers of the offshoots of the Worldwide Church of God all twisted up and people who “stick with them” will lose their lives. Members are prisoners of these “sinisters.”
105.) Members who come before the Judgment seat can’t say to God they were only following orders. They can’t say this because each member is responsible for his or her actions.
106.) Ministers are going to tell members to work on God’s Sabbath Day when they know that God’s Sabbath is the seventh day and people have to wait for the sun to come down and set before they start the Sabbath Day. [Transcriber’s Note: West of the IDL time was changed.]
107.) Who would tell people not to wait until the sun reaches them in their country? The Devil would tell people to do this. The Devil would tell people to work on God’s Sabbath Day. “Sinisters” tell people to work on God’s seventh-day of rest.
108.) “Sinisters” are the wolves, and the proof is that they changed God’s Sabbath to the sixth-day in half of the world. And they are “driving” members down into the Lake of Fire if they are telling them to work on God’s Sabbath Day. It is so serious.
109.) The lying “sinisters” tell people that everything is all right, while they are living in darkness of God’s ways and they will end up being beaten with many stripes. That’s because they have been told what God’s truth is.
110.) And even if people didn’t hear the truth from The Obedient Church of God, people will be beaten with stripes anyway because they didn’t look into the Bible themselves. Each person is responsible for reading and studying the Bible him or herself.
111.) From the time of Adam and Eve Satan has tried to undermine everything God says. The Bible says to observe the Sabbath Day on the seventh-day and keep it holy, but “sinisters” say no. In half the world they are going to have the Sabbath on Friday because they are going to follow a phony International Date Line, which was set up in 1883.
112.) Genesis 1:14 says that light (of the sun and moon) will mark days. Satan says that lights will not mark days. Ministers have adopted the Jews averaging calendar, or they follow the IDL.
113.) Ministers of all the Worldwide Church of God offshoot don’t honor God. Just like Cain they don’t give the right sacrifice because they do what Satan says.
* * *
114.) In Genesis 4:5 records,“Unto Cain and his offering he (the Lord) had not respect. [Transcriber’s Note: Cain was a tiller of the ground, producing vegetables. He brought the fruit of the ground as an offering to the Lord. He didn’t respect God’s desire to have an animal sacrifice.]
115.) And Cain was very wroth, and his countenance fell. The Lord said unto Cain, Why art thou wroth? and why is thy countenance fallen?...if thou doest not well, sin lieth at the door...” [Transcriber’s Note: Cain was angry because he couldn’t have his own way. His sin was “a demon lying at the door.” The REB translation says that the demon crouching at the door desired to master Cain.]
116.) We must rule over sin, we must master it.
117.) There is such a thing as the wrath of God and it’ll be coming through the sword. It’s unfortunate we’re going to be doing that type of work, but the people are not listening.
118.) The people refuse to listen and they continue to neglect and refuse to listen. We are not supposed to have anything to do with the unfruitful works of darkness.
119.) And what is “unfruitful?” People refuse to get rid of their pagan days. They refuse to stop using their Mother- goddess day, their Sky Father’s Day, their Turkey-god Day. They refuse to stop.
120.) Well, whether you saw the speed sign that said 40 miles an hour or not, you still have to pay the penalty. And that’s why God says you will be beaten with many stripes in God’s fierce anger.
121.) We have a righteous God and he wants us to be in harmony so that there aren’t 4,000 different doctrines, instead of preaching God’s righteous proper way.
122.) So it is for people’s own good that Father is going to put them through the Tribulation, and it’s so serious. Yet the “sinisters” just pass it off as not important, as a non event.
123.) Each person is responsible. Each person has to appear before the Judgment Seat all by him or herself. So it is for people’s own good that Father is going to put them through the Tribulation, and it’s so serious. Yet the “sinisters” just pass it off as not important, a non-event.
124.) So when people are headed into the Tribulation , if they don’t repent in the Tribulation, it will be their own fault, and they will go into the Lake of Fire.
125.) Ezekiel 46:1 & 3 record that the gate of the inner court that faced the east was opened on the Sabbath and in the day of the new moon. People worshipped on these days.
126.) Whether your “sinister” tells you to start observing New Moon Day or not, the Bible tells us we shouldn’t work on New Moon Day, and we can’t buy or sell on New Moon Day.
127.) We don’t want these ministers misrepresenting the characteristics of God, so that people misunderstand the true nature of God. God does have wrath. There’s a time for war and there’s a time for peace, there’s a time for anger, there’s a time for wrath.
128.) We are familiar with John 3:16, “God so loved the world that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.”
129.) There are other scriptures that say God is a God of wrath. And we don’t realize God executes His wrath. And he executes it against people, and that’s part of God’s nature.
130.) Verses also say our God is particular and jealous. Exodus 20:5-6 says, “Thou shalt not bow down thyself to them (graven images), not serve them, for I the Lord thy God am a jealous God, visiting the iniquity of the fathers upon the children¼and showing mercy unto ¼ them that love me, and keep my commandments.”
131.) We are not supposed to serve Turkey-god Day, we’re not supposed to serve Mother-goddess day, we’re not supposed to serve Sky Father’s Day. If you are participating in those days, you are serving them. We’re not supposed to. Wonder if you’ve got the message now.
132.) Bear Note: You have got to renounce sin. It is not you giving up one sin or 50 sins, which is true repentance, it is renunciation of every single sin.
133.) And if you harbor one sin, such as having Mother-goddess Day when you thank your children for giving you a Mother’s Day card or present, you are guilty of participating in a Devil Day. If they call you on Mother’s Day hang up on them.
134.) Do you harbor one accused sin in your heart? If you do, your “nest” is a sham.
135.) It is like having a leak in a ship. Just one leak will cause the ship to sink. You are going to sink if you have one leak in you ship of faith. It is all or nothing that God demands.
136.) God demands that you put him above your children if they call you up on Mother-goddess day. You are to hang up on them. Also, for your children that called you on Sky Father’s Day, hang upon them. They’ve learned the ways of the heathen (Gentiles) and you are not supposed to have those days, or the anger of God is going to be kindled against you and bring upon you all kinds of curses that are written in the book.
137.) God’s anger will be kindled against you, especially during the Tribulation. Deuteronomy 32:20 says, “And he (the Lord) said, I will hide my fade from them, I will see what their end shall be: for they are a very forward (perverse) generation, children in whom is no faith.”(no faithfulness)
138.) Another translation of Deuteronomy 32:20 says, “I will hide my face from them, they shall be devoured and many troubles and evils shall befall them.”
139.) It is part of God’s nature that he is going to use a “2x4” to wake people up.
140.)Luke 12:4 &5 tells us, “Be not afraid of them that kill the body¼Fear him which after he hath killed, hath power to cast into hell (Lake of Fire); yea, I say unto you, Fear him.”
141.) Father can’t accept you repentance as being real and genuine if you continue to want your own way. All sin must be given up or renounced or you’ll never see the Kingdom. Repentance, to be sincere, has to be entire repentance. You must totally accept God’s way.
142.) Bear Note: For repentance to be sincere, it has to be entire.
143.) The gates of the Kingdom are going to be barred against you, and you are going to be kept out and thrown into the Lake of Fire as a “disobedient brat” for our one sin.
144.) All transgression must be renounced. And you have to fight against that one transgression and get it out of your life. That one transgression is like a “leak in a boat” that will allow water to come in and sink the boat.
145.) Do you want to keep your Mother-goddess Day, keep your Turkey-god Day, keep your Sky Father’s Day so you don’t offend your children? This is a life and death issue. What is more important to you? Are you going to “turn” or are you going to “burn”? It’s pretty serious.
146.) Repentance has to be of the heart. It is not a mock repentance or an act of just trying your best. It has to be of the heart. It has to be coming from your heart, and it is putting your heart out to Father.
147.) True repentance is turning your heart, as well as your way of life. You are giving up your whole being to God for ever and ever giving him your heart.
148.) You can’t have a fictitious repentance where you have one or two hidden sins because then you haven’t turned your heart. It’s like having your wife and having one or two old ex-girl friends in the background. This man hasn’t turned his heart
149.) Your repentance must be perpetual. Not just turning your heart one day and getting rid of all your sins and then having one sin keep creeping back and back. For your repentance to be genuine, it has to be perpetual.
150.) You can have legal repentance or you can have heart-felt repentance. So even if you get that one sin out of your life, it’s got to be heart felt, and not just legality, because God doesn’t want to marry someone who doesn’t love him.
151.) Would you marry someone who doesn’t love you, but obeyed everything you said? Love must be of the heart.
152.) When a man repents, the Spirit of God works in him so he doesn’t quench the Spirit. He lets the Spirit of God work in him. And he does not have one sin that is repeating itself. He conquers, because he can do all things through Christ in him.
153.) There is a question here of the heart. We can do all things through Christ through the power of the Holy Spirit. So it is possible for you. You don’t want to have repentance without your heart being in it.
154.) The thief may stop stealing because he doesn’t want to be thrown in jail, or a Christian might stop sinning because he doesn’t want to be thrown in the Lake of Fire. But that thief would steal tomorrow if he could get away with it, and that Christian would sin tomorrow if he could get away with it because it’s not of the heart.
155.) When a man or a woman has true repentance he actually hates sin, and he loathes that sin. And he loathes Sky Father’s Day, he loathes Mother-goddess Day ,he loathes Turkey-god Day. He loathes moving the Sabbath Day to the sixth-day in half the world. He doesn’t say, “I’ll wait until Christ comes back.” That isn’t a converted attitude. I’d be worried if I had that attitude.
156.) There are terrible times coming ahead. Mr. Lawrence A. Nowell doesn’t want us to go through them. He wants us to be in the place of safety. He wants us to be protected by Father, and you’ve got to turn your heart and get your obedience through your heart because God is a God of love.
157.) Matthew 7:13 says, “Enter ye at the strait gate, and broad is the way that leadeth to destruction, and many there be which go in thereat.”The way of the ungodly shall perish.
158.) Psalm 1:4-6, “The ungodly are like the chaff which the wind driveth away, therefore, the ungodly shall not stand in the judgment, nor sinners in the congregation of the righteous.”
159.) Job 21:17-18 says, “How oft is the candle of the wicked put out! And how oft cometh their destruction upon them. God distributed sorrows in their destruction upon them. God distributed sorrows in his anger. They are as stubble before the wind, and as chaff that the storm carrieth away.” Pretty serious.
160.) Hebrews 10:31 says, “It is a fearful thing to fall into the hands of the living God.” By telling God that we’ll keep the Sabbath Day when Christ comes back, but we refuse to do that in half the world now. It is a horrible thing to fall into the hands of the living God.
161.) From moving the Sabbath Day to the sixth-day of the week, people will get the wrath of God. Romans 1:18, “The wrath of God is revealed from heaven against all ungodliness and unrighteousness of men, who hold the truth in unrighteousness.”
162.) How can a person hold he truth in unrighteousness?
163.) You hold the truth in unrighteousness by knowing that the Sabbath Day is on the seventh day, yet you keep it on the sixth-day, and you refuse to wait until the sun goes down in half the world so you hold the truth in unrighteousness. For that the wrath of God is revealed against you.
164.) Ephesians 5:6 says, “Let no man deceive you with vain words, for because of these things cometh the wrath of God upon the children of disobedience.”
165.) Even the people who don’t know any better are going to be beaten by stripes because they should have looked it up, they should have checked and taken an interest in what people were saying to them.
166.) For the person who missed seeing the 40 mile per hour sign on the road when he was driving 60, he will still get a ticket because the driver wasn’t careful.
167.) When we see the whole creation around us and the stars at night, and all the beautiful animals and birds, can we just ignore God the Creator, and just go our own merry way, and do what we want to do? No, because we’ll have confusion in God’s beautiful creation.
168.) When people go their own way, there will be Irish Protestants killing Irish Catholics. There will even be church fights among the Worldwide Church of God offshoots in the parking lot. That’s what happens when they don’t follow every jot and tittle of God’s Word.
169.) Revelation 14:10 & 19 tells that an angel cried with a loud voice to him that sat on the cloud, “Thrust in thy sickle, and reap¼for the harvest of the earth is ripe¼And the angel thrust in his sickle into the earth, and gathered the vine of the earth, and cast it into the great winepress of the wrath of God.” That is what is coming on this world now.
170.) Revelation 21:8 tells that the unbelieving and all liars—all “sinisters” who lie to people and tell them to have the Sabbath Day on the sixth-day in half the world—shall have their part in the lake which burns with fire. God can’t use liars.
171.) The problem is that there is a Devil out there and that Devil does sow seeds of evil. And the Devil sows conceptions and ideas that are not Biblical.
172.)The Devil said to Eve, Did God really say that? And did God say you really shouldn’t have Sky Father’s Day? Well, Sky Father’s Day is a pagan day; that’s where it came from.
173.) The Devil asked if God really said you shouldn’t have Turkey-god Day? It’s always been a Harvest Home festival. Look it up in history books. That’s why we should live by every jot and tittle of God. We don’t start twisting and make up allowances for it and say you are praising God on Thanksgiving Day when you serve a big turkey.
174.) We can’t march in Hitler’s parade and say we are not part of it. We can’t keep pagan days and say we are not part of them. Also, pagan days can’t be used to honor God.
175.) W can’t sow to the Devil because in the end the tares are gathered up and burned in the fire. So shall it be with you. God can’t use you in the Kingdom because all the way through you are going to be changing things for the next 10 million years. You can’t be trusted.
176.) And you won’t enter in that straight gate. You refuse to. So what can we do with you? We can give you more admonition in order to help you understand and remember the wrath of God. Remember, turn or burn.
177.) It’s a lot of work to give information on the broadcasts, and to bring the arguments to bear on people. We don’t have to do this because we ourselves have got it right.
178.) We know that God is a God of wrath. Deuteronomy 28:28 states, “The Lord shall smite thee with madness and blindness, and astonishment of heart (confusion of the mind).” And when all this trouble comes on you, God’s going to laugh at you.
179.) God will laugh at you because he told you through his representatives just as you are being told now. Proverbs 1:26-27 says, “I also will laugh at your calamity; I will mock when your fear cometh; when your fear cometh as desolation (terror strikes you like a storm); and your destruction as a whirlwind, when distress and anguish cometh upon you.”God will laugh at you.
180.) What else is God’s wrath going to do that goes on the ungodly who refuse to keep God’s ways?
181.) Hosea 5:14 says, “I will be unto Ephraim as a lion, and as a young lion to the house of Judah: I, even I, will tear and go away; I will take away, and none shall rescue him.” Psalms 50:22 says, Now consider this ye that forget God, lest I tear you in pieces, and there be none to deliver.”
182.) Malachi 4:1 records, “For, behold, the day cometh that shall burn as an oven, and all the proud, yea, and all that do wickedly, shall be stubble: and the day that cometh shall burn them up, saith the Lord of hosts, that it shall leave them neither root nor branch.”
183.) The day of the Lord is coming when all the arrogant “sinisters” make all their excuses, and all the evil doers will be stubble. That day is coming.
184.) God’s wrath will swallow up all his enemies. Psalm 21:8-9 says, “Thine hand shall find out all thine enemies: thy right hand shall find out those that hate thee (the “enemies” are those who are not for Father.) Thou shalt make them as a firey oven in the time of thine anger: the Lord shall swallow them up in his wrath, and the fire shall devour them.” This is Yeshua here.
185.) Those who refuse to follow the Bible will be included as God’s enemies, the disobedient.
186.) Ephesians 5:5-6 says, “For this ye know, that no whoremonger (one who is sexually impure), nor unclean person, who is an idolater, hath any inheritance in the Kingdom of God. Let no man deceive you with unclean (empty) words: for because of these things cometh the wrath of God upon the children of disobedience.”
187.) Romans 1:18 says, “For the wrath of God is revealed from heaven against all ungodliness and unrighteousness of men, who hold the truth in unrighteousness.”
188.) There are ministers who suppress the truth about pagan days from their membership. They suppress Turkey-god Day from their membership by not telling them about it. They suppress Sky Father’s Day, they suppress Mother-goddess Day.
189.) One particular man of the Living Church of God suppresses the sixth-day not being the Sabbath so they suppress the truth.And the wrath of God is going to come down on those men!
190.) Romans 5:9 says, “¼being now justified by his blood, we shall be saved from wrath through him.”
191.) Why is the wrath of God coming? Colossians 3:5-6 tells us, “Mortify (put to death what is earthly )¼in your members which are upon the earth, fornication, uncleanness, inordinate affection, evil concupiscence, and covetousness, which is idolatry.(sexual immorality, impurity) For which things sake the wrath of God cometh on the children of disobedience¼”
192.) There will be weeping and gnashing of teeth when the disobedient are thrown into hell. Matthew 8: 12 says, “¼cast them unto outer darkness (firey furnace), there shall be weeping and gnashing of teeth.”
193.) Matthew 13:41-42 says, “The Son of man shall send forth his angels, and they shall gather out of his kingdom all things that offend, and them which do iniquity; and shall cast them into a furnace of fire: there shall be wailing and gnashing of teeth.”
194.) Verses 49 & 51, “¼If that evil servant shall say in his heart, My Lord delayeth his coming; and shall begin to smite his fellow servants, and to eat and drink with the drunken; the lord of that servant shall come in a day when he looketh not for him, and in an hour that he is not aware of, and shall cut him asunder (cut him off), and appoint him his portion with the hypocrites: there shall be weeping and gnashing of teeth.”
195.) Matthew 25:30 “¼Cast ye the unprofitable servant into outer darkness: there shall be weeping and gnashing of teeth.”
196.) Now we are seeing the other side of Christ Jesus and the Father, and how they deal with disobedience. If people don’t renounce these sinful days, if they don’t turn their hearts to the Father, their reward will be hell. This is going directly to all the “sinisters” out there.
197.) Mark 9:42 “¼Whosoever shall offend one of these little ones that believes in me, it is better for him that a millstone were hung about his neck, and he were cast into the sea.”
198.) So you who are practicing Mother-goddess Day, Sky-Father’s Day, Turkey-god Day, and moving the Sabbath to the sixth-day in half the world, and causing your little ones who believe in Father and Yeshua to sin, Mark 9:42 applies to you.
199.) There is overwhelming evidence to show God as a God of love and of wrath. God has both characteristics because God cannot tolerate and will not tolerate willful disobedience.
200.) Romans 1:28 & 32 say, “Even as they did not like to retain God in their knowledge, God gave them over to a reprobate mind, to do those things which are not convenient¼who knowing the judgment of God, that they which commit such things are worthy of death¼”
201.) Romans 2:1-2 continues, “Therefore thou art inexcusable, O man, whosoever thou art that judgest: for wherein thou judgest another, thou condemnest thyself; for thou that judgest doest the same things. But we are sure that the judgment of God is according to truth against them which commit such things.” Romans 2:5-7 continues, “¼the rigthteous judgment of God; who will render to every man according to his deeds¼unto them that are contentious, and do not obey the truth¼ tribulation and anguish, upon every soul of man that doeth evil¼”
202.) In looking at Romans 1:32 and 2:1 it is basically saying that Paul speaks of those who give hearty approval to those who practice Sky Father’ Day, Mother-goddess Day, Turkey-god Day. There is clear evidence of Paul’s teaching there is the love of God, but there is the wrath of God also. You never hear on television about the wrath of God.
203.) We are all going to have to go to court. We are all going to have to stand in front of the judge. II Corinthians 5:10 records, “For we must all appear before the judgment seat of Christ; that every one may receive the things done in his body, according to that he hath done, whether it be good or bad.”
204.) All you “smarty pants” out there, you are going to have to go to court. Guaranteed. You are going to have to stand before the judge. We each will receive what is due to us, whether it is good or whether it is bad.
205.) Each of us has to tell Christ why we did what we did. None of us is to follow men. First we are to blow the dust off the Bible and then we follow what is in the Bible. But ironically, people follow Herbert W. Armstrong. That was an odd twist there. We only follow what is in the Bible.
206.) Mr. Lawrence A. Nowell has told us all about Herbert W. Armstrong and he is going to put up a 50 page booklet that he has written on Herbert W. Armstrong. Way back in 1937 Mr. Herbert Armstrong “fell off the rails” when he started molesting his daughter Dorothy. He became a pedophile by having sex with Dorothy.
207.) Herbert Armstrong can’t be led by God’s Spirit and do such things.
208.) There are eight different witnesses. Why didn’t Mr. Hertert Armstrong ever deny that he didn’t raope Dorothy. Why didn’t he come out with a statement saying this is an absurd, ridiculous charge against me. I would never do such a thing. He was quiet on the matter.
209.) Why didn’t Mr. Armstrong sue the author of the book “The Tangled Web,” where the book published in chapter 20 that Herbert had been raping his daughter for ten years. Anyone would have won that court case if the allegation was not true. Herbert couldn’t straighten out that accusation because it was true.
210.) All you ministers out there, especially in the Church of God the Eternal, you take Herbert Armstrong off of that pedestal, and you start following the Bible. And when Herbert Armstrong disagrees with the Bible, you follow that Bible, and you don’t follow Herbert W. Armstrong.
211.) We have to get it straight in our minds that we are going to have to go to court and we can’t give any excuses to God for why we followed a man instead of God’s Word.
212.) Romans 1:18 says, “For the wrath of God is revealed from heaven against all ungodliness and unrighteousness of men, who hold the truth in unrighteousness.
213.) God is actually judging men for their sins today. Because everything that we do is being written down. Most people don’t even know there are books being written about them. Each of us has a recording angel that writes down everything we do. In the eyes of the Lord the angels roam through the earth and report back to God what is going on. We want to be cognizant of that. We don’t want to be ignorant of God’s recording angels.
214.) Angels record what we say when our children call us on Mother’s Day or Father’s Day and we play along with our children and we indulge in the presence of our children. We accept the compliments of our children on those evil pagan days, including Turkey-god Day (Thanksgiving).
215.) It’s a sad situation to be following “sinisters” instead of following the Bible. There isn’t any way out of it. We want to be following God so we have got to follow the Bible and not words of men.
216. The Obedient Church of God wants things to go well for you. We want you to be righteous in God’s sight because we love God. We want to confirm our righteousness that it is not of our own but of the power of the Spirit that will bring us through all trials and tribulation and all sins.
217.) In Luke 12:47 we don’t want to be beaten by God as it says, “And that servant, which knew his lord’s will, and prepared not himself, neither did according to his will, shall be beaten with many stripes.”
218.) Verse 38, “But he that knew not, and did commit things worthy of stripes, shall be beaten with few stripes¼” Even if you didn’t know any better, you are going to be beaten. So you better get on board with the truth.
219.) The world will not endure sound doctrine. II Timothy 4:3 “For the time will come when they will not endure sound doctrine¼” Sin is crouching at the door for us. Remember the serpent approaching Eve, “Did God really say that?”
220.) Don’t listen to your ministers. These “sinisters” should be fired because they are not preaching the Bible. We are not supposed to have anything to do with pagan days, the unfruitful works of darkness. If you call yourself a Christian, you’ve got to stop using Devil days.
221.) If you don’t stop using Mother-goddess Day, Sky Father’s Day, Turkey-god Day, God will take a sword to you. Psalm 7:11-12 says, “God judgeth the righteous, and God is angry with the wicked every day. If he turn not, he will whet his sword¼” God will put you through Tribulation.
222.) Job 36:17-18 says, “¼judgment and justice take hold on thee because there is wrath, beware lest he take thee away with one stroke: then a great ransom cannot deliver thee.” In regard to judgment, the Septuagint says, “There shall be wrath upon the ungodly¼”
223.) The ransom of Christ won’t be able to deliver the ungodly. This is a fact of God’s wrath. John 3:36 tells us, “He that believeth on the Son hath everlasting life; and he that believeth not the Son shall not see life; but the wrath of God abideth on him.”
224.) There are two kinds of beliefs: there is a dead faith, and there is a living faith. Having a living faith, the person obeys every jot and tittle in a love for God; the dead faith has Sky Father’s Day, Turkey-god Day, Mother-goddess Day, and moves the Sabbath to the sixth-day in half the world, because they have no fear of God. Those who have a “dead faith” have the wrong kind of belief.
225.)Jesus wrote the Bible and in Deuteronomy 12:32 no one is supposed to add Gentile days. Jeremiah 10:2 tells us to “Learn not the way of the heathen (Gentiles).”
226.) John 3:36 says, “¼the wrath of God abideth on him (he that believeth not the Son).” And Romans1:18, “The wrath of God is revealed from heaven against all ungodliness and unrighteousness of men, who hold the truth in unrighteousness.”
227.) Let no man deceive you with vain words that Christ will restore the Sabbath Day to the seventh-day in half the world, so we can have the Sabbath Day on Friday until then. No! Ephesians 5:6 says, “Let no man deceive you with vain words for because of these things cometh the wrath of God upon the children of disobedience.”
228.) These passages are numerous and they confirm divine wrath. They are a solemn warning that there is wrath. God can take you away with one stroke of His sword.
229.) Romans 2:3 “Thinkest thou this, O man, that judgest them which do such things, and doest the same, that thou shalt escape the judgment of God?” “Thinkest thou this, O man, that thou shall escape the judgment of God?” Did Adam escape the judgment of God? Did Cain escape the judgment of God? Did Pharaoh escape the judgment of God? Did Haman escape the judgment of God?
230.) The only reason God hasn’t taken out these ministers with the sword yet, is because God is enduring and longsuffering, but his wrath is getting filled up to the brim. And all these “sinisters” will be leading their congregations straight into the Tribulation. And this is the tragic thing so few realize.
231.) The offshoots of the Worldwide Churches of God don’t see any alarm for observing Sky Father’s Day and Mother-goddess Day when their children call them up, and Turkey-god Day. They don’t see anything wrong. It is tragic! It is tragic! Beware, lest God take you away with a stroke, and a great ransom cannot deliver you. That would be the end of the matter. There is nothing but ultimate ruin and misery that you are headed for.
232.) There are terms of discipleship. If you are going to be a real disciple, you are going to have to learn to follow the things that are in the Bible by faith. And not be like the Serpent who said, “Did God really say that?”
233.) Galatians 1:6-7 says, “I marvel that ye are so soon removed from him that called you into the grace of Christ unto another gospel (perverted gospel of Christ).” Verse 9 continues, “¼if any man preach any other gospel unto you than ye have received, let him be accursed.”
234.) Worldwide Churches of God offshoots cannot preach a gospel with different holy days or different ways or the Turkey-god Day, with the Mother-goddess Day, Sky Father’s Day, and moving the Sabbath Day unto the sixth-day in half the world, then you are not a real disciple.
235.) If we have any doubts about what Mr. Lawrence A. Nowell is preaching to us, then we have to walk by faith.
236.) When you reflect on what the Church congregation is doing and realize it is wrong, stop doing it. Mr. Nowell went to restaurants with the church congregation on the Sabbath Day until he reflected on what he was doing, and realized it was wrong to purchase a meal on God’s day of rest, so he stopped doing it.
237.) Mr. Lawrence A. Nowell doesn’t worry about what will happen in the future because the angels and Mr. Nowell outnumber all of the “sinisters.” The angels and Mr. Lawrence A. Nowell outnumber all the Worldwide Churches of God offshoots, so Mr. Nowell never fears speaking out because he knows the angels and Mr. Nowell outnumber all of the other humans.
238.) So are you going to make Christ pre-eminent in your life? Are you going to make it a priority in your life? We’ve got to love Father and Father’s ways more than anything else in your whole life. There is obedience which is necessary.
239.) John 14:15-18 say, “If you love me, keep my commandments, and I will pray the Father, and he will give you another Comforter, that it may abide with you forever. Even the Spirit of truth¼ye know it for it dwelleth with you, and shall be in you.” Christ says, “I will come to you, and not leave you comfortless.”
240.) Bear Note: Truth is the Comborter.
241.) If you’ve got the Truth you fear no man. You fear nothing that will befall you. You know that the angels around you outnumber any number of humans around you.
242.) You know you are going to pop back to life in one microsecond after you die. It doesn’t matter what any man can say or do about you. So, of course, in faith you go forward. Of course, you speak God’s truth in faith because you love God with all of your heart and with all of your mind.
243.) After the closing song and closing prayer, the music of “Deep Jordan” was played to close the service.
