September 30, 2011, Sermon Transcript
By Lawrence A. Nowell
1.) Last night, Thursday, September 29th, 2011, the crescent moon was sighted in Jerusalem, Israel at 6:25 p.m. At the Karaite Korner Nehemiah Gordon confirmed this.
2.) It’s common for the new moon to be visible a day earlier in southern hemisphere, especially in the autumn. So the moon was sighted in South Africa on Wednesday night, September 28th, and it was visible Wednesday p.m. in the United States.
3.) It was impossible to see the new moon in Jerusalem until Thursday night, the 29th. Therefore, the trumpeting begins on the new moon sighting Thursday, September 29th and goes on until sunset Friday night, September 30th in the United States.
4.) Other countries, like Australia and the Philippines, that are west of the United States, have to wait until Saturday, until the shadow of the sun comes to change the day.
5.) This makes TOCOG the only congregation in the whole world, and that includes all the rabbinical experts who use the Hillell II averaging calendar, to teach the correct time to observe the New Moon Day as well as the Holy Days and Sabbath to those who live west of the International Date Line where the day jumps ahead 24 hours.
6.) If a person flies out of Los Angeles International Airport going west to Australia, magically, the day jumps ahead 24 hours. It can’t be that way because it wasn’t until 1881 that the imaginary IDL was put in and time was advanced forward to another day.
7.) The Obedient Church of God is the only congregation who keeps the Day of Trumpets and the Sabbath at the proper time west of the International Date Line.
8.) Also, TOCOG doesn’t keep Sky Father’s Day, the longest day of the year, just like Christmas is the shortest day of the year. And we don’t celebrate Mother-goddess Day that honors the mother of all gods. And we don’t celebrate Turkey Day that represents the goose that gave its life for its young in honor of Osiris-Ra, gods of ancient Egypt.
9.) Even the Indians and Bradford celebrated a festival for three days. It wasn’t a spontaneous event in terms of the “Pilgrims” being joyful for the harvest.
10.) These fortune hunters, “land-seekers,” weren’t called “pilgrims” until 100 years later when Daniel Webster coined the name for his dictionary. There were also slave traders on the ship. They came for opportunity.
11.) There were about thirty in the colony that had come from Holland. They didn’t come for religious freedom because they had religious freedom in Holland. God had a part in that adventure of them coming to a new land.
12.) We see the results of Bradford keeping that pagan festival, which could have been held at another time of the year.
13.) The Bible says to keep the Feast of Tabernacles for seven days, so we don’t add a second feast to God’s Feast, an appointed time. We can’t change God’s plan for 6,000 years and the Feast of Tabernacles starts the 7th 1000 years representing Christ’s rule on earth. Adding a Turkey day fouls up God’s typology severely.
14.) This introduction sets the tone for how evil this generation is. This includes the ministers who are the wolves. They tear apart anyone who has any knowledge that goes against them, what they believe, teach, and do.
15.) The largest denominations of the offshoots of Worldwide are starting to go against The Obedient Church of God. The offshoots are attacking the messenger, Mr. Lawrence A. Nowell. They will not discuss that Sky Father’s Day is the longest day of the year and is a pagan day. They won’t discuss it. Instead, they attack the messenger!
16.) Leaders of these denominations say that Mr. Nowell is in a bad attitude. Mr. Nowell is not a bad attitude; he will keep broadcasting that Sky Father’s Day is pagan. Ministers will have to change their attitudes now because Father will change them in the coming trumpet plagues.
17.) In Israel there is regress regarding the United Nation’s Security Council. There is a plurality of nine nations that are necessary to pass the current resolution.
18.) Palestinian foreign minister Al Maliki told the Palestine radio station that 8 members of the Security Council have pledged to support the Palestinian Statehood application, so they can be a separate country. Great efforts are being made to secure the decisive 9th supporter.
19.) Palestinians are focusing their effort on convincing Bosnia to become the decisive 9th supporter. To keep the ball rolling they need nine nations supporting them.
20.) This is important for us to know because this means that Israel will be going to war as soon as that starts. Now the Security Council decisions require the support of nine of 15 members, and there are no vetoes from five permanent members in order to pass. So this could be vetoed.
21.) First to have 9 votes, they’ll get Bosnia to call it Palestine. The Jews were also in that same area, but they weren’t called Palestinians.
22.) The history of the ownership of Israel is important. It was the British who chopped up that area. Palestine was administered by the British. And before that the Ottoman Turks for 400 years.
23.) In 1917 the British began to negotiate with the Zionists from around the world and Jews living in the area of Palestine. The British tried to pave the way for a Jewish homeland. And those negotiations came about in the Balfour Declaration in 1917.
24.) In 1923 Britain gave King Abdullah 77% of Palestine, the whole east bank in order to protect the right to the oil.
25.) And the British built the Suez Canal. And Trans Jordan was crfeated, which in 1946 became the Kingdom of Jordan.
26.) The Palestinians are actually the Jordanians and Jordan became an independent Palestinian State, and was carved out of Palestine and Israel.
27.) Then in 1947 the United Nations sliced off another 23% of the Jordan River and created another Palestinians state and tried to internationalize Jerusalem.
28.) For 2,000 years Palestine was a geographical area, not a state. And Jews were living in that area as well as Arabs. Jews lived there 2,000 years ago and in Jerusalem.
29.) The British have been behind the scenes since 1917. Now the United Nations Security Council rides the Beast. These leaders are the handmaidens of terror. They are going to be setting them up in such a way that it is going to involve World Wars 4 & 5. There isn’t going to be any easy out of this mess. Yeshua needs to come back.
30.) All we can say is Maranatha, “God’s Kingdom Come.” This area has been fought over for over 4,000 years. Nothing is going to change until Yeshua returns.
31.) At the Feast of Booths men are to appear and give an offering. It does not say on the Day of Trumpets. Offerings are given three times a year.
32.) The shofar (ram’s horn) is blown on the Day of Trumpets, Yom Teruah, “the day of shouting.” The horn is about 50 inches long with a huge bell-shaped end on it.
33.) Blowing a shofar was an “alarm of war,” a frightening sound. When the twelve tribes heard the staccato beat, this put a chill into the people and they knew trouble of attack was near. Men got their swords out. There are seven trumpets, a solemn time.
34.) Some people think that when they die they are going to heaven. And God’s people could die before Yeshua arrives. Life is full of trials and accidents do happen.
35.) Mr. Lawrence A. Nowell was attempting to move a ladder that had wet sand in it from a recent rain. So when he tried to collapse it, it came together on his thumb. He hadn’t felt pain like that for years.
36.) His thumb was stuck between the two halves of the ladder for about a minute. Mr. Nowell had to get his thumb freed with the other hand because the ladder must have weighed 60-70 pounds with wet sand in it.
37.) When Mr. Nowell took the glove off, his thumb was still there and although it had been smashed 1/4th inch, it was whole and fine. That was an answer to prayer.
38.) We are going to have trials and we work through the trials. God enters into our disasters and helps us through them.
39.) Mr. Nowell’s thumb bled and throbbed all night, and when he woke up for the broadcast, it was healed. It was moveable again.
40.) The operator of the 40,000 pound backhoe drove into a depression on the ground and over he went, pulling a tractor with him. The driver was all right.
41.) We are in Satan’s world and the rain falls on the righteous and unrighteous. But God enters our messes and helps us through them.
42.) Father is going to show men there is a God and He is going to make his name great among the Gentiles when these trumpets are blown. He will show mankind there is a great God.
43.) Malachi 1:11 states, “From the rising of the sun even to the going down of the same my name shall be great among the Gentiles…for my name shall be great among the heathen (nations), says the Lord of hosts.”
44.) Verse 12 continues, “But you have profaned it, in that you say, the table of the Lord is polluted, and the fruit thereof, even his meal is contemptible.”
45.) God’s people add pagan days to God’s Holy Day plan, and this defames God’s name. Malachi 1:4 says, “Cursed be the deceiver, which has in his flock a male, and vows and sacrifices unto the Lord a corrupt thing (an animal that is blemished): for I am a great King, says the Lord of hosts.”
46.) Those who use pagan days, are offering blemished sacrifices to the Lord. The world’s holidays are of pagan origin. “Cursed be the deceiver.”
47.) In October we have the Feast of Tabernacles coming up and we are not to add another day to the festival of God.
48.) Isaiah 13:9-11 says, “Behold, the day of the Lord comes, cruel both with wrath and fierce anger, to lay the land desolate: and he shall destroy the sinners thereof out of it… I will punish the world for their evil, and the wicked for their iniquity; and I will cause the arrogancy of the proud to cease, and I will lay low the haughtiness of the terrible.”
49.) Presently there are terrible “banksters” that are just gouging people day after day. Goldman Sacks is making money 99% of the time with their stocks. They can’t do that unless they are manipulating the market electronically.They have their haughtiness.
50.) “Banksters” have collapsed the housing market. They don’t care. They are psychopaths—people who only care about themselves and have no consideration for the feelings and needs of anyone else.
51.) Wall Street brokers don’t care. Their job is to make money and the more the better. They don’t care who it hurts, they don’t care they brought down the whole housing market of the whole world. In Isaiah 13:11 God says He will lay low the haughtiness of the terrible.
52.) The wicked people will be getting worse and worse. There protestors and the police are subduing the lawful protestors.
53.) This week there were three ladies standing on the street protesting. It was their right to speak up and stand in their area.They weren’t advancing or threatening anyone, and yet the police pepper-sprayed them for no reason.
54.) The police are wicked!
55.) In the ‘70s at Kent State University it was the authorities who were killing students. (The National Guard shot students who wanted the Viet Nam War to end.)
56.) Isaiah 13:11 applies to the government, which is wicked.
57.) Yeshua is the only one who can rectify situations here on earth. This is why we have to have trumpets. Joel 2:1 says, “Blow the trumpet in Zion and sound the alarm in my holy mountain (country—TOCOG nation).”
58.) Joel 2:10-11 says, “In the Day of Trumpets the earth quakes, the heavens tremble, the sun and moon grow dark, stars diminish their brightness. And the Lord shall utter his voice before his army: for his camp is very great (large): for he is strong and executes his word; for the day of the Lord is great and terrible.”
59.) We have a situation here where we are getting a warning from God and he is not going to recant, he is not going to change his mind. He is going to give the world a spanking on the Day of Trumpets.
60.) What’s going to happen on that Day of Trumpets with people crying out to Father? Proverbs 1:27-29 tells us, “When your fear comes as desolation, and your destruction as a whirlwind, when distress and anguish come upon you, then they shall call on me, but I WILL NOT ANSWER; they shall seek me early, but they shall not find me, for that they hated knowledge, and did not choose the fear of the Lord.” Believed lies.
61.) This segways into today’s sermon, which is the fact that no one is going up to heaven. No one has ever gone up to heaven, except in vision. Even David did not ascend up into heaven. Acts 2:29 tells us that the patriarch David is both dead and buried, and his sepulcher is with us unto this day. Acts 2:34 says, David is not ascended into the heavens.
62.) This subject ties into the Day of Trumpets. We are going to be stuck on this earth, and most of us will not be going to a place of safety, and we’ll definitely not be going to heaven to escape.
63.) There is a verse that says if we try to go to outer space, Father will bring us back.
64.) Ecclesiastes 9:5 says, “The living know that they shall die: but the dead know not anything, neither have they any more reward; for the memory of them is forgotten. Also their love, and their hatred, and their envy, is now perished; neither have they a portion forever in anything that is done under the sun.”
65.) Psalm 146:4 records, “His breath goes forth he returns to his earth (dust); in that very day his thoughts perish.”( Ecclesiastes 9:10 continues the thought, “…there is no work, nor device, nor knowledge, nor wisdom in the grave, whither you go.”)
66.) Matthew 5:12 is twisted by some. It says, “Rejoice, and be exceeding glad: for great is your reward in heaven…” Our rewards are stored in heaven, a record of everything we have done is stored. (A reward is reserved for each of us .)
67.) We have an incorruptible inheritance, one that does not fade away. I Peter 1:3-4 says, Father has begotten us…unto a lively hope by the resurrection of Jesus Christ from the dead, to an inheritance incorruptible… reserved in heaven for you.
68.) I Corinthians 15:51-53 says that we all shall be changed at the last trump: for the trumpet shall sound, and the dead shall be raised incorruptible, and we shall be changed…this mortal must put on immortality.
69.) Revelation 22:12 tells, “Behold, I come quickly; and my reward is with me, to give to every man according as his work shall be.” (We are not in heaven, but on earth. He brings our rewards to us.) Jesus is going to reign on earth, “not” in heaven.
70.) Revelation 5:10 The “Lamb” in the throne room , has redeemed us to God by his blood…and has “made us unto our God kings and priests: and we shall reign on earth.”
71.) I Corinthians 15:50 says, “flesh and blood cannot inherit the kingdom of God.”
72.) Zechariah 14:4 The Lord’s “feet shall stand in that day upon the Mount of Olives, which is before Jerusalem on the east…and the Mount of Olives shall cleave in the midst…toward the east and toward the west, and there shall be a very great valley.”
73.) When we go to TOCOG internet sight under Spiritual Healing, we can read the facts about going to heaven. No man is ever going to Heaven, only Jesus has ascended, John 3:13.
74.) God the Father will descend to live on earth in the Holy City (1500 square miles, Rev. 21:16)
75.) The Father and his Son will rule the Universe from earth forever!
76.) Here on earth we will be part of these terrible events that are coming. We’re also going to be suffering sins and mistakes of others. There’ll be a small group in a place of safety.
77.) There isn’t any rapture for people to escape these end-time events.
78.) John 3:13 tells us, “No man has ascended up to heaven, but he that came down from heaven, even the Son of man which is in heaven.” No man has ever gone to heaven except Yeshua.
79.) People don’t want to believe their Bibles. Therefore, in Proverbs 1:27-28, “When you fear comes as desolation and your destruction comes as a whirlwind; when your distress and anguish comes upon you, then shall you call upon me, but I WILL NOT ANSWER; you shall seek me early, but you shall not find me.” This is a repeat of point 60. In verses 26 and 29
80.) Father will laugh at our calamity; he will mock when our fears come because we hated knowledge and believed lies!
81.) Satan’s ministers who appear as ministers of light and speak on television, try to say that they are going to heaven and that each of us is going to heaven when we die. That’s where Satan wanted to go and usurp God’s throne.
82.) The meek will inherit the earth, not heaven. Remember John 3:13. “Blessed are the meek: for they shall inherit the earth.” Matthew 5:5
83.) Christianity has been overtaken by the Roman Catholic Church, the church of the Emperor Constantine. And they are lying to people saying they are going to heaven.
84.) All dead people from the time of Noah are still in the ground as dust, waiting for their change to come. John 14:14 says, “If a man die, shall he live again? All the days of my appointed time will I wait, till my change come.” If people have gone to heaven when they died,they wouldn’t be concerned about being changed, for they already have been changed
85.) Ecclesiastes 9:5 says, “The living know that they shall die, but the dead know not anything …the memory of them is forgotten.” Their love is gone; their hatred is gone, nothing to share.
86.) Psalm 6:5 records, “In death there is no remembrance of thee: in the grave who shall give thee thanks?”
87.) The Roman Emperor Constantine’s Church of 328 A.D. morphed into the Roman Catholic Church of today. Rome fed the Christians to the lions. We can’t have anything to do with the Catholic Church, nor can we have anything to do with the offshoots of the Catholic Church. The Protestants are the harlots that came out of the Mother Catholic Church.
88.) All the Protestant Churches who came out of the Catholic Church will be slain by God. They can’t add Ishtar, the goddess of sexual love, called Easter. They have fertility symbols of chocolate bunnies and colored eggs. It’s unbelievable for people to consider themselves Christians and have the feast of Ishtar.
89.) Celebrating pagan holidays is why we are going into the tribulation and we are all going to suffer. Price of food will be very high. Revelation 6:6 says that wheat and barley will cost a day’s wage for a worker.
90.) When Jesus was hanging on the stake, one of the thieves said to Jesus, “Lord remember me when you come into your kingdom.”
91.) And Jesus said unto him, “Verily, I say unto you, today you shall be with me in paradise.” This reply should read, “Verily I say unto you today, you shall be with me in paradise.”
92.) Originally, the Bible did not have punctuation. Punctuation was not used until the sixteenth century when the printing press was invented.
93.) The day Jesus and the thief died on the stakes, they did not enter heaven or paradise. It was three days later when Jesus arose from the grave and ascend to heaven. The scripture didn’t say the criminal would be in heaven, it says paradise.
94.) The thief on the cross was not in heaven on that day of crucifixion nor did he go to paradise. Nor did Jesus go to heaven on the day of his crucifixion; it was three days later.
So the comma should follow the word “today,” on the day Jesus hung on the cross.
95.) We must follow the Bible exactly as it is written or else we are wasting our time. Each of us is just a bag of bones, and it we don’t learn Bible doctrines now, we will have to learn these things all over again in the second resurrection.
96.) Lawrence A. Nowell’s mother passed away this past week. She was ninety years old. Everyone thinks she is up in heaven, but the Bible teaches she is in the ground, waiting for her change to come.
97.) Genesis 5:24 says, “Enoch walked with God: and he was not, for God took him.”
98.) Hebrews 11:5 states, “By faith Enoch (because he pleased God), was translated that he should not see death; and was not found.” NRSV says, “By faith Enoch was taken so that he did not experience death; and he was not found because God had taken him.” Evidently, Enoch was transported to another place on earth, and he later died.
99.) The Bible cannot contradict itself. The dead are in the dust of the ground.
100.) Bear Note: Jesus was the firstborn of the dead, Colossians 1:18. Elijah went up in a chariot, so he must have gone to another place on earth. If Elijah went up to heaven, it was earth’s atmosphere (where planes fly).
101.) Colossians 1:18 says, “Jesus is head of the body, the church, who is the beginning, the firstborn from the dead.”
102.) There are three heavens: l.) Heaven where the birds fly; 2.) There is a heaven where the space ships fly to planets; and 3.) There is a third heaven way in the far sides of the north where the Pleiades are.
103.) Luke 16: 20-25 tells the story of a selfish rich man who dies and begs for the poor man Lazarus to “dip the tip of his finger in water, and cool his tongue,” for he was tormented in this flame.
104.) If this rich man were on fire, he would be wanting to have a dousing of water to put the flame out. He asked for a drop of water because his throat was dry and he was in terror and agony seeing his fate.
105.) The rich man was buried after he died. Strong’s concordance says “buried” means he had “funeral rites.” (The dead were put in the ground.)
106.) In the Greek “hades” is where people go when they are dead. But in this story the rich man suffered the torments of burning, separation, loneliness, conviction by memory, thirst, and stench. Being in torment must refer to extreme human suffering.
107.) Psalms 146:4 tells us that when our breath goes forth, our thoughts perish.
108.) For the dead there are two resurrections. The dead in Christ will be made alive in the first resurrection when Christ arrives. In the second resurrection is a great white throne hundred year period that occurs past the thousand years, a period in which sinners have time to repent.
109.) Isaiah 65:20 says that the sinner being an hundred years old shall be accursed by being put into the Lake of Fire.
110.) Jesus comes and rules on the earth for a thousand years, and after they end, all of the dead will be raised back to human form again. Ezekiel 37:5-6 describes dry bones that live again. During this hundred year period, those who will live God’s way will be given the gift of eternal life.
111.) In this life we are not yet born again, not yet changed into a spirit being. The test is to stick a pin into yourself to find out whether you can feel it or not. If you say ouch, you are not a spirit being. All our days we will wait until our change comes.
112.) God winks when we are ignorant of our sins and he has mercy, but grace is a limited time for us to repent in once we know what is right and wrong.
113.) We are called and we respond. Yeshua stood in our place in paying the penalty for our past sins that we have repented of, and continue to turn away from.
114.) The commandments of God show us what sin is. They were not nailed to the cross. It was the charges against Jesus that were nailed above Jesus’ head.
115.) We remain faithful and true to the original doctrines of the Bible. And then we are given the free gift of eternal life.
116.) Every country has laws in order to avoid chaos. God’s Kingdom has rules for people to follow so people will consider one another as well as themselves.
117.) If people won’t live according to God’s ways now, they will have to come up in a second resurrection and demonstrate they will live according to God’s standards of conduct, and then they will be given the free gift of eternal life.
118.) Today is the Day of Trumpets, September 30th, 2011.There are many trumpets, not just one happy trumpet as many ministers mislead people to think.
119.) Yeshua will come upon us like a whirlwind and it will be horrific and his judgment is coming and he is going to repay. It represents terrible times of destruction so we keep a sober attitude, which is necessary to understand the doctrine of God. God will kill two billion of us during the days of trumpets.
120.) It will be like stirring up a hornet’s nest because Yeshua will have 10,000 holy ones each having a sword with him. Yeshua’s voice will be heard across the whole earth.
121.) Fear God because we are living in the “end times.” God’s trumpet will resound throughout the earth. This applies to the Gentiles because they are being called in, and this applies to the outmost reaches of the world for them all to come to know God.
122.) The trumpet sounds when Yeshua comes, and the earth will tremble and begin to shake. Yeshua is coming out from his place, his home in the third heaven, and he is coming to this earth in vengeance and hot anger.
123.) People will feel the hotness of scorching heat from Yeshua’s anger. It will be horrible on those who have forsaken the Lord, the high-minded people, the wicked who will be shaking in their boots. Yeshua will know the spiritual adulteries that are going on.
124.) Even without Yeshua visiting the world, God the Father is taking His hand off the world and letting people reign. He is taking his hand of protection away from America, and what people have sown, people are going to reap.
125.) We are starting to see the formation of the Arab Spring, and we’ll also see an American Spring of rioting in the streets. We are seeing it starting now because Father has taken His protection away.
126.) Bear Note: People will be drinking of their own wickedness.
127.) There are wicked police officers who pepper spray law-abiding lady street protestors. They had no reason to pepper-spray them.
128.) There groups of contemptuous people out there, police forces who will be attempting to abuse all of us with their contemptuous hands. And the world will be going from bad to worse.
129.) The world is going to be defiled, awash in blood and tears. Pestilences will come forth; famines shall consume. And there will be death in every corner. 200 billion die.
130.) Yeshua with his angels will pour out his vials on the earth. Yeshua is going to war with the earth. Yeshua’s anger will be poured out in the plagues, bowls, and vials. This is the overview, but more of details will be given in terms of exact sequence of events.
131.) All people will see the weight of His fury and it’ll be turned against the people for disobeying the Bible with its statutes and laws. There will be lightning and blood and hailstones from the sky. People will be calling for rocks to fall upon them, because they can’t cope and call on death to save them because they don’t want to live any more.
132.) Deceitful people, such as the Wall Street bankers—“banksters”—just go on and on, knowing no boundaries. Sin liberates and spreads like a plague. All the countries are coming down because of greed. It’s a wicked and adulterous age.
133.) Whoever shall not repay shall not God repay? People’s actions will not be hid from Father’s eyes. Vengeance is Father’s. Our maker will make a quick end of this mess. This is what is going to be happening. Yeshua is coming back with a vengeance.
134.) What happened to Sodom and Gomorrah was done with vengeance and terror.
135.) This is what the Day of Trumpets is. It is the anger of God on the world because their sins are very great. Not that God is a “meany,” but there is a reward for a person’s works, whether for good works or for bad works.
136.) All people receive a due reward. If a person sins, he or she gets punishment; if a person does right, he or she receives a blessing.
137.) God’s people have to get out of this arrogant wicked generation. There is no other way except to love our brother. The second greatest commandment is to love our neighbor as ourselves. We must treat our neighbor as well as we treat ourselves, which is God’s way.
138.) If we break the second commandment of not loving our neighbor as ourselves, we’ll be subject to the fierce anger of Yeshua, even if we keep the ten commandments.
139.) It’s the serpent’s time, it’s going to be the Prince of the Power of the Air’s time.
140.) There’s going to be a group of Christians who are going to be taking the mark of the beast on their foreheads and on their right hands and the number of his name, and they are going to be slaughtered because they have chosen pagan days and ways, such as, believing the idea that we are all going to heaven when no one is going to heaven.
141.) They are going to drink of the wrath of God, and then they’ll know they should be obeying every jot and tittle of the scriptures. Once the wrath comes, there will be no more excuses.
142.) When that day of trouble comes, Father will not hear people’s cries, and He will not answer. The reason is that they have been disobedient brats. Therefore, they will be thrown down. God will not listen to them.
143.) All of the Lutherans will be thrown down. Pentecostals will be thrown down. The only answer is for people to obey every jot and tittle of the Bible in love to the Father.
I John 3:4 explains that to commit sin is to break God’s law: for sin is lawlessness.
144.) Now we see how terrible the end- time scenario is going to be. Are we going to be along side our neighbor or are we going to be in a place of safety? The odds are we will be right along side our neighbor and be suffering with the just and the unjust, both suffering together. It’s God day of many trumpets.
145.) The Day of Trumpets is not a happy idyllic return of Christ at the last trump. We’ve got to fear God because Yeshua will be returning with a vengeance. We’ve got to respect Yeshua because there are going to be 2 billion people that are going to be killed.
146.) The people who are going to die are going to be celebrating God’s Holy Days one day early. Off-shoots of Worldwide Church of God are using the Hillel II calendar, and this causes them to celebrate Day of Trumpets a day early. Hillel II is not in the Bible.
147.) Also, God’s Holy Days can’t be moved one day ahead for those who live west of the International Date Line. God’s moadim means His Days are to be observed at an “appointed time.”Those who change His times, do not fear God. Changes can’t be made.
148.) The eleventh horn (the little horn of Daniel 7:8) that arises shall speak great words against the most High, and shall wear out the saints of the most High, and think to change times and laws; and they shall be given into his hand until a time and times and the dividing of time.” This is the “man of sin” who makes alterations.
149.) Understand that just because we have one or two things right does not mean that we won’t go through the tribulation. We’ve got to be spotless. The saints are without spot and without blemish.
150.) Christ was the Lamb who stood in my place, and with the help of God’s Holy Spirit, we have to be trying to be without spot and without blemish in order for Christ to apply His sacrifice upon us. We’ve got to have fear of God.
151.) Remember, Adam in the Garden of Eden had his eternal life taken away from him. And God will do the same thing to us if we are disobedient to His word. And that’s why Adam didn’t live to be a thousand years old.
152.) In Psalm 15:4 “A vile (wicked) person is contemned (despised).” This is God speaking. We will be judged by every word in the Bible, not by every word our minister says.
153.) For all those denominations who think they can have changes to the doctrines of the Bible, the members aren’t going to be judged by their denomination’s doctrines, they will be judged by every word of God.
154.) Revelation 20:12 says, “I saw the dead…stand before God, and the books were opened: and another book was opened, which is the book of life, and the dead were judged out of those things which were written in the books, according to their works.”
155.) Each of us has a recording angel to write down in the books our deeds. For those who want to escape the tribulation, they will have to quickly get their lives in line with the Bible because we want it to be said, “There shall be no more delay.”
156.) “There shall be no more delay,” means that the time is shortened. It is short in terms of the next seven years. It also says that if those days were not cut short, no flesh would be saved alive. The time now is just before the seven years begin.
157.) It’s a call to arms to return to God’s ways. We must stand up for God’s Bible.
158.) The crescent new moon was sighted last night, September 29th, 2011, from Jerusalem, and The Obedient Church of God accepts this. But all the other churches of God decided they are not going to follow the crescent new moon.
159.) We have to follow God’s crescent new moon to know when God’s “appointed times” are for the Holy Days. We are not to change God’s Holy Days one day early or move them around. Stop arguing with Father and his handbook on how to conduct worship services.
160.) Psalm 104:19 tells us,“He appointed the moon for seasons(to mark the seasons)” The word “seasons” is the Hebrew word moadim, meaning God’s “appointed times.” The crescent of the moon can actually be seen, called “hodesh.”
161.) After you’ve read all the translations and you refuse to obey the Bible, read Genesis 1:14 where “God said, Let there be lights in the firmament of the heaven to divide the day from the night and let them be for signs, and for seasons, and for days and for years.” Lights in the sky are for days, not man’s calendars.
162.) Now a terrible day is coming upon us. How can we change God’s appointed times by the one who bedeviled us and who bewitched us? This happened to us over a period of time after we get calloused to one thing and another, and incorporating one paganism practice after another.
163.) Galatians 3:1 “O foolish Galatians, who has bewitched you, that you should not obey the truth…?” You cannot more God’s Holy time one day early or two days late and say you are obeying and fearing God. You’ve got to learn to fear God.
164.) Ecclesiastes 10:11 says, “Surely the serpent will bite without enchantment (being charmed); and a babbler is no better (different).”
165.) TOCOG has been bitten by the different churches of God because we didn’t charm them. We told one church leader that Turkey Day was wrong and it is pagan, and we got bitten.
166.) Ecclesiastes 10:12 says, “The words of a wise man’s mouth are gracious, out the lips of a fool will swallow up himself.”
167.) Some of the other churches are beginning to pay attention now. They are getting their backs up.
168.) The gestalt of all this is the Devil wanted to go up to heaven and take God’s Throne.
169.) If you don’t fear God and follow the Bible, you are of your Father the Devil, who was a rebel in wanting to ascend to heaven, wanting his own way, from the beginning.
170.) John 8:44 says, “You are of your father the devil, and the lusts of your father you will do…he abode not in the truth, because there is no truth in him. When he speaks a lie, he speaks of his own: for he is a liar, and the father of it (lies).”
171.) So you don’t follow disobedient organizations especially if you learn to fear God by knowing that God will kill one third of the 6 billion people on earth and possibly you. If you are disobedient and rebel against the Bible’s words, that is what is going to be happening in the next two years.
172.) This is what will happen and here’s how it will happen. There are seven trumpet events, trumpets, woes, and bowls, the seventh seal and the year seven. For this calculation the Roman calendar is used.
173.) Revelation 8:1 says, “When he had opened the seventh seal, there was silence in heave about the space of half an hour.” (Breath-taking event to occur.) Fifteen days.
174.) Revelation 8:7 starts the seven trumpets. The first trumpet is thirty days long. One-third of all the earth’s trees and all the green grass burns up.
175.) Revelation 8:8-9 When the second trumpet sounds, a meteorite falls into the sea and for thirty days one- third of the sea becomes blood, one-thind of the sea creatures die, and one-third of the ships are destroyed.
176.) Revelation 8:10-11 The third angel sounds and a great star from heaven fell upon the rivers and a third part of the waters become wormwood and men die because the waters become bitter for thirty days.
177.) Revelation 8:12, The fourth angel sounds and there won’t be any light from the sun, moon, and stars when a third part of the light is darkened for the next thirty days.
178.) Revelation 8:13 tells that the next three trumpets are three woes: Revelation 9:1
179.) When the fifth angel sounds a star falls from heaven. The bottomless pit is opened. The sun is darkened by the smoke of the pit. Locusts torment men five months
180.) Revelation 9:13, the sixth angel sounds and four angels that are bound in the Euphrates River are loosed to slay 2 billion men with an army of 200 million by plagues. This second woe lasts sixty days.
181.) Revelation 11:15 describes the seventh trumpet, the third woe. It sounds for 49 days, giving seven days to each of the seven vials that are described in Revelation 16.
182.) Revelation 16:2 First vial: sores on those who have the make of the beast.
183.) Revelation 16:3 Second vial: sea becomes blood, every creature dies.
184.) Revelation 16: 4 Third vial: rivers become blood.
185.) Revelation 16:8-9 Fourth vial: men scorched with heat from the sun.
Revelation 16:1011 Fifth vial: darkness causes pain.
186.) Revelation 16:12-14 Sixth vial: Euphrates River dries up. Unclean spirits gather world armies at Megiddo. (These spirits are the one that had been locked-up in woe 2.)
187.) Revelation 16:17 Seventh vial: Proclamation says, “It is done.”
Revelation 16:18-21 There were voices, thunders, lightning, great earthquake. Great city is divided into three parts, God’s wrath comes on Babylon, hail falls on men.
188.) Revelation 17: 1 Judgment of the great whore (church)
189.) Revelation 18:2 Babylon falls
190.) Revelation 21:8 Lake of fire is second death.
191.) Revelation 19:20 False prophet and beast cast into a lake of fire.
192.) Revelation 20:2 Satan and demons bound for a thousand years.
193.) Seven Trumpets equal one year of the Day of the Lord.
194.) Each year on the Day of Trumpets is time for us to fear God and to tremble in our boots, so that we can repent and be in a place of safety.
195.) We only have the option of dying, going through tribulation, or to place of safety We want to be “spotless” so we can be counted worthy to escape all of these things.
