December 17, 2011 Sermon Transcript
By Lawrence A. Nowell
1.) “I don’t want to talk about it, how you broke God’s heart. If I preach to you a little bit longer, won’t you listen to God’s heart.” This is the theme song for The Obedient Church of God, to preach to people around the world from 1stcenturychristian.com and
www.theworldtomorrow.org. We are learning how to love God.
2.) It is six p.m. in Paris, France, 9 a.m. on the West coast, and 12 noon on the east coast: breakfast time, lunch time and supper time, the perfect time for our spiritual feeding for today.
3.) We are learning how to obey Father when most denominations refuse to obey every jot and every tittle of the scriptures.
4.) The Obedient Church of God is broadcasting around the world for other countries, and west of the International Date Line are people in countries who are keeping the sixth- day for the seventh-day Sabbath in Japan, China, the Philippines and Australia. This error for half the world began in 1883.
5.) In Pakistan, however, there is a group of Christians who are observing the Sabbath on Sunday because they wait until the seventh day’s sun arrives in their area since the IDL jumped the day ahead 24 hours west of an imaginary line.
6.) The Obedient Church of God is the only remnant group because the facts prove TOCOG is the only congregation in the world that teaches people to keep the Sabbath Day on the seventh-day in the whole world.
7.) The service for today is opened with prayer by Mr. Lawrence A. Nowell and then he leads the song service.
8.) The Living Church of God members are all fasting today. It was proclaimed because the whole congregation has so much illness and disease.
9.) Mr. Lawrence A. Nowel remembers one congregation had prepared a meal for Shimini Atzerets, a holy day after the seven days of the Feast of Tabernacles. The leaders wanted everyone to sit down for the meal, but the sun hadn’t gone down yet.
10.) Mr. Nowell humbly told the leaders to wait until after the sun goes down to enjoy their holy day meal. Everyone was mad at Mr. Nowell, so he walked on.
11.) Mr. Nowell also refrains from going into a restaurant to buy a meal on the Sabbath Day. He doesn’t show up until after sundown, after the time of rest.
12.) The point is The Obedient Church of God has been keeping the Sabbath Day properly from back in the 1980s. There is only one remnant group that is keeping the Sabbath Day on the seventh-day in the whole world and that is TOCOG.
13.) The Obedient Church of God does not participate in Turkey-god Day, which everybody had on Thanksgiving. It is the same as the goose that gives its life for its goslings. In North America the geese had flown south, but the turkey was revered by the native people, and they even sacrificed a virgin to their gods on that day.
14.) Those who are following the road that the Living Church of God is on, or the United Church of God is on, or that Triumph Prophetic Ministry is on, or that the Philadelphia Church of God is on, where they move the Sabbath to the sixth-day in half the world, and who celebrate all these Devil Days, are they going to be in God’s place of safety during the Great Tribulation?
15.) Will they be messengers of God on the Sabbath Day for half the world? Will these churches grow in allegiance for the Sabbath Day? Will these churches lead people away from Devil Days, such as Sky Father’s Day, the longest day of the year? Or Mother-goddess Day, the Mother of all gods?
16.) Mr. Lawrence A. Nowell suggests that people get to God’s place on the Sabbath in the half of the world where the day has been jumped ahead 24 hours because of the International Date Line that was put in place in 1883.
17.) In countries like Australia and the Philippines if there are two in the same city who want to keep the Sabbath at the proper time,they should meet together.
18.) Message to Australians from God is, “Will you be at my house tomorrow on the Sabbath Day?
19.) All the brethren in Pakistan will be in God’s House at the proper time for the Sabbath because The Obedient Church of God taught them that.
20.) Realize there is only one church that is following all of God’s laws and the proof is in the facts. TOCOG doesn’t follow the International Date Line and move the Sabbath to the sixth day in half the world since 1883.
21.) Rabbis have no right to move the Sabbath Day from the seventh-day to the sixth-day in half the world. They have authority to follow God’s ways.
22.) Bear Note: Rabbis are not the editors of Yah’s law. Rabbis are only the administrators of the existing law in the Torah.
23.) TOCOG doesn’t go to restaurants and put people to work on the Sabbath Day. We don’t go to restaurants to pay for a meal on God’s day of rest. Even though they will be working anyway on the Sabbath Day, we are responsible for paying them money for their services, so the sin of our going to the restaurant on the Sabbath Day is on our head. Thus, we do not buy or sell on the Sabbath Day.
24.) TOCOG doesn’t have Turkey Day or Sky-Father’s Day, and we don’t have Mother-goddess Day. Nearly all of the other denominations have all of those days or at least one of them.
25.) Whenever people are disobedient, God first tells them what they are doing wrong and tells them to repent. For not repenting, God would put sickness and plagues upon the people and there would be nothing but ruin and misery.
26.) Dr. Robert Thiel of the Living Church of God has been apprised of all these facts for a period of three to four months. Now there is a situation where the members of the Living Church of God are all fasting today because they are getting the wasting diseases upon them. It’s all because they are not repenting.
27.) Let’s compare Mr. Herbert W. Armstrong to Martin Luther. After Luther wrote his Thesis about errors in the Catholic Church, he had a following called Lutherans, and then came Protestants and various denominations that are still teaching their beliefs.
28.) The same thing happened regarding the Worldwide Church of God. When Mr. Herbert Armstrong died there arose many off-shoot groups, none of whom are obeying God
29.) Each person will be held responsible for what he or she knows. Remember Hebrews 10:26, which says that if we know what to do and we to do it, we face consequences. Inculcate this scripture into our minds. It is important!
30.) “If we sin willfully after we have received a knowledge of the truth, there no longer remains a sacrifice for sins.” It continues, “A fearful expectation of judgment and firey indignation which will devour the adversaries.”
31.) In verse 29 how much worse punishment do you suppose will he be thought worthy who has trampled the Son of God underfoot, and has counted the blood of the covenant whereby he was sanctified, an unholy thing, and hath done despite unto the Spirit of grace?
32.) NRSV of Verse 29, “How much worse punishment do you think will be deserved by those who have spurned the Son of God, profaned the blood of the covenant by which they were sanctified, and outraged the Spirit of gace?
33.) Some will say that they will wait for Christ to return to restore all things. What a travesty! The Bible says Elijah will restore all things. It’s duality.
34.) The Obedient Church of God is the Romans 9:28 “short work,” first century Christian group of the Philadelphian type church. We are the one remnant group who is obeying God’s Word in every jot and tittle. We don’t follow the International Date Line and we don’t follow the rabbi’s decision to have the Sabbath on the sixth day west of the imaginary IDL.
35.) TOCOG prays that Father will lead us to more truth and as soon as we find more truth, we apply it. And we don’t draw back, read verse 38 of Hebrews 10, “Now the just shall live by faith, but if any man draw back, my soul shall have no pleasure in him.”
36.) TOCOG is not the church that draws back to expectation, but of them who believe to the saving of the soul. We believe. We believe. We believe exactly what Yah has written, and we don’t add to God’s Word. Read Hebrews 10:39.
37.) The whole Living Church of God is now fasting since last night because they are all sick. TOCOG hopes they will repent so Yah can heal them. We’ve got to tell the abuser to repent.
38.) When Bob Thiel tells Mr. Lawrence A. Nowell to repent for telling him to stop breaking the Sabbath in half of the world, that is the sign of an abuser. What Mr. Thiel is telling TOCOG is that we are responsible for breaking God’s Sabbath in half the world.
39.) Abused children often times assume the responsibility for the abuse that is done to them. Mr. Lawrence A. Nowell says that he will not take responsibility for Bob Thiel’s actions.
40.) An abused child would say, If I just kept silent, he wouldn’t have hit me.
This is the mark of dysfunction for Bob Thiel, thinking that Mr.Lawrence A.Nowell is responsible for his intolerance.
41.) Mr. Nowell is not going to fall into that trap where abused children assume the responsibility for the abuse that is done to them. Instead, the abused should shut the abuser down by telling the abuser to repent.
42.) Mr. Lawrence A. Nowell is not keeping silent. He says, “I’m telling you Bob Thiel, there will be worse trouble with the Living Church of God. You are responsible for breaking God’s Sabbath command in half the world.
43.) Now you, Bob Thiel, are telling The Obedient Church of God to repent!
That means you are an abuser! Bob Thiel is the one who needs to repent.
44.) TOCOG is not going to fall into the sick trap that we are responsible to the Living Church of God, to cow tow to the Living Church of God, and that it’s our fault for Bob Thiel telling us to repent. It’s not TOCOG’s fault. Repent Bob Thiel!!!
45.) Now the entire Living Church of God is having to fast because of sickness among the members. We’ll see where this all leads.
46.) The abuser who is shutting down God’s Sabbath in half the world, who is abusing God’s way of life of not to have Devil Days, No Mother-goddess Day, no Sky Father’s Day, no Turkey-god Day.
47.) Mr. Lawrence A. Nowell hopes Bob Thiel hears this message. The problem is abusers very rarely think they are at fault. For their actions they want others to take responsibility. The one with the problem should be told he needs to repent.
48.) Mr. Nowell is shouting out to everyone that The Obedient Church of God
Is the only church on the face of this earth that is following all of God’s laws that we know of while the other congregations are not. That means TOCOG is dealing with Satan’s children all around us because they will to follow what Satan wants them to do. They are of their Father the Devil because they follow his will.
49.) John 8:44 says, “You belong to your Father the Devil, and you want to carry out your Father’s desires. He was a murderer from the beginning, not holding to the truth. For there is no truth in him. When he lies, he speaks his native language for he is a liar and the father of lies.”
50.) They don’t hold to the Sabbath being the seventh-day around half the world. They don’t hold to any prohibitions saying you’re not supposed to learn the way of the Gentiles: Turkey Day, Sky Father’s Day, and Mother-goddess Day.
51.) NIV John 8:44 says, “For you are the children of your father the Devil and you love to do the evil things that he does.” You are of your father the Devil and you will is to do Sky-father’s Day, Mother-goddess Day, Turkey Day, moving the Sabbath Day to the sixth-day in half the world.
52.) New American Standard Version of John 8:44, “You are of your father the Devil, and you want to do the desires of your father.”
53.) KJV of John 8:44 says, Ye are of your father the Devil, and the lusts of your father ye will do.” And that’s what they are doing.
54.) ISV, “You belong to your father the Devil and you want to carry out the desires of your father.”
55.) Aramaic Bible of John 8:44, “You are from your father the Devil, and the desire of your father you are willing to do…does not stand for truth, and does not stand in the truth because there is no truth in him. Whenever he speaks a lie, he speaks from what is in him because he is a father falsehood.”’
56.) Mr. Lawrence A. Nowell has had to deal with a lot of people in his corporation and over those years he has learned that it is not what a person says, it’s what the person does that is important.
57.) Here is an example:If Mr. Nowell fills a glass with water, he expects water to come out of it, not mud, not a mixture of dirt and water, because his glass holds only pure water. But if evil mud comes out of it, (if lies come out of a person’s mouth), it is not pure water, it’s dirt,lies, mixed with water, making mud.
58.) If we want to be in congregations where the minister is spewing mud out of his mouth, you will have a terrible fate. On the authority of Hebrews 10:26-27, they will be in the Lake of Fire.
59.) The Revised English Bible says, “For if we deliberately persist in sin after receiving the knowledge of the truth, there can be no further sacrifice for sins; there remains only a terrifying expectation of judgment, of a fierce fire which will consume God’s enemies.”
60.) By their fruits we will know them. If it’s a glass of water, pure water will come out of it. But if it’s of the Devil, it will have mud in it because the Devil has been a liar since day one.
61.) “Did God really say that?” Did God really say we shouldn’t have Sky Father’s Day, or Mother-goddess Day? Yes he did.
62.) God said in Jeremiah 10:2, “Do not learn the way of the heathen.” But then your Devil ministers, “sinisters” will say, “It doesn’t say that in the Bible.”
63.) Deuteronomy 18:9 commands,“When thou art come into the land which the the Lord thy God giveth thee, thou shalt not learn to do after the abominations of those nations.”
64.) NRSV Deuteronomy 18:9, “…you must not learn to imitate the abhorent practices (disgustful ways) of those nations.”
65.) When the English came into America they were not to learn to do the abominations of the native Americans.
66.) When we come into America which the Lord thy God giveth thee, thou shalt not learn to do after the abominations of America. We are ambassadors in America, but we are not of America. We are of God’s Church.
67.) Galatians 1:6, & 9 say, “I marvel that you are so soon removed from him that called you into the grace of Christ unto another gospel…If any man preach any other gospel unto you than you have received, let him be accursed.”
68.) Revelation 22:15 reads, Outside of the city (Jerusalem) are “idolaters, and whosoever loves and makes (practices) a lie.” These pagan days are lies.
69.) Revelation 21:27 says, “There shall in no wise enter into it (the city) anything that defileth, neither whatsoever…maketh (causes) a lie.” This applies to the “sinisters” who won’t enter God’s Kingdom because they cause a lie!!
70.) These ministers of the churches are the wolves who are shearing the sheep and slaughtering the sheep by telling them to disobey God.
71.) These “sinisters” of the Living Church of God are telling the members to have the Sabbath on the sixth-day in half the world. In 1883 the Sabbath day was moved to the sixth-day because of the New International Date Line, an imaginary date in the Pacific Ocean.
72.) Rabbis told Jews who lived west of the IDL in half of the world to observe the sixth-day while the Sabbath was observed on the seventh-day in America. Those rabbis did not have the authority to do this. Churches are wrong to follow.
73.) For people who live west of the IDL Church of God ministers are telling them to have the Sabbath Day a day early because the day advanced 24 hours!
Actually those people must wait until the first day of the week in order to observe the seventh-day Sabbath at the proper time in the vast Asian area, half of world.
74.) Everywhere on earth since the fourth century Jews have been following the Hillel II calendar that was an averaging fixed-date calendar that causes God’s “appointed time” for the Holy Days to be one or two days early or late: Satanic.
75.) Rabbi Hillel II had no authority to move the days around, and also to add postponements according to his discretion as well. This is not God’s calendar! The Churches of God who follow this calendar are also in error.
76.) The off-shoots of the Worldwide Church of God are so particular to know the second the sun goes down to cease from work for the Sabbath day,but they’ll move the holy Days around so when the“appointed time”comes they’re working!
77.) Remember, Jewish rabbis are administrators, not editors of God’s laws.
78.) Now we have ministers of the Devil telling their members to disobey God. They are of the Devil and they need to repent of errors and teach God’s ways.
79.) Bear Note: One of the greatest gifts of God is the ability to know God our Father and to obey him.
80.) We can actually effectuate the implementation of God’s Kingdom and help the others, and add more children to come into God’s Kingdom. Or we can effectuate putting people burning in hell by our telling them not to obey God.
81.) Realize that The Obedient Church of God is the only church that is following God’s laws and that is proven by the facts. Mr. Lawrence A. Nowell is following the Sabbath Day on the seventh-day throughout the world and he is not moving it to the sixth-day as others have since 1883.
82.) All the unrepentant offshoots of the Worldwide Church of God are just like Martin Luther and the harlot churches that came out of the Catholic Church.
83.) These “sinisters” use their tongues to deceive: the words from their lips are like venom from a snake. Mr. Bob Thiel told Mr. Nowell, “Don’t tell me not to have the Sabbath Day on the sixth-day in half the world. You repent Mr. Nowell.”
84.) Mr. Lawrence A. Nowell is here to tell the truth. He says, “You repent, Mr. Abuser! You repent Mr. Bob Thiel and anything that Mr. Nowell says to correct the evil Devil days, he is not going to apologize for. Mr. Nowell tells Mr. Thiel to repent from his Devil Days. Mr. Nowell will not enable Mr.Thiel to be an abuser.
85.) Mr. Lawrence A. Nowell won’t allow Mr. Bob Thiel to blind the eyes of the Living Church of God members. The venom of snakes is under his lips. He uses his tongue to deceive.
86.) Mr. Thiel’s mouth is full of bitterness and curses. But behind his path is nothing but ruin and misery in his “sinistery.” He is running members right into the Lake of Fire by telling people to work on the Sabbath Day in half the world.
87.) Mr. Thiel has blinded people to God’s truth and corrupted people’s minds by letting them have pagan days. He’s taken people’s hearts and twisted them against God. Instead of allowing God to be the people’s master, ministers rule.
88.) The Living Church of God owns the people.The Philadelphia Church of God
is the people’s master. The United Church of God is the people’s master. Triumph Prophetic Ministry is the people’s master. GOD is not their master and owner!!!
89.) The proof is that all of these groups have Devil Days! All of these groups have moved the Sabbath to the sixth-day in half the world! They are all Satan’s false ministers parading around as if they were ministers of life, just like all the whores and harlots that came out of the Catholic Church!!
90.) There are all of the off shoots of the Worldwide Church of God; they are going to hear more and more about God’s truth.
91.) We’ll see how the fasting of the Living Church of God works out, if they don’t repent. We’ll see what happens next to them. It’s a sad situation. And they have the audacity to be abusers and tell The Obedient Church of God to repent!
92.) We have to know our enemy so we can know how to deal with our enemy
93.) TOCOG is not going to keep quiet and the world has to know and see churches for what they are. To see how they are breaking the Sabbath and the stark betrayal of God’s Word where it says clearly we are not to add a day to God’s Bible. We are not to learn the ways of the gentiles, in (Jer. 10:2; Dt.18:9)
94.) The world hasn’t seen or heard what The Obedient Church of God is going to do. If, God willing, he keeps on leading us and providing the funds for everything we need to come in just at the right time.
95.) So Father hasn’t given us the big lump of cash that we need for setting up a satellite network. But everything comes in at just the right time. Another rash of sales has come in –just enough to pay for the expenses.
96.) Enough money came in to help the brethren in Pakistan to buy food. They are now studying the writings on not to observe Christmas. One of the earliest booklets, “The Plain Truth About Christmas,” is being translated into Urdu, a language that is used in Pakistan and also in India.
97.) Leviticus 26:13 says, “…I am the Lord your God, which brought you forth out of the land of Egypt, that you should not be their bondmen; and I have broken the bands of your yoke, and made you go upright.” The Living Church of God has had its bands of the Catholic Church broken so they could walk upright.
98.) Verses 14-15 continue, “But if you will not hearken unto me, and will not do all these commandments; and if you despise my statutes…” (Deuteronomy 12:32 Don’t add.)
99.) Dealing with the “sinisters,” how should their criminal behaviors be punished?
100.) God knows what punishment to give the disobedient Churches of God.
101.) Verse 16 says, “…I will…appoint over you terror (terrible things), consumption, and burning ague (fever) that shall consume the eyes, and cause sorrow of heart…” Wasting diseases are cancer, flu fever, etc. cause life to pine away.
102.) The Living Church of God can’t understand why the members are all sick. For the past three months Mr. Lawrence A. Nowell has been telling Mr. Bob Thiel, the right hand man to Roderick C. Meredith, and the one Mr. Nowell believes is influencing the work, the errors of their ways. Now they have sorrow of the heart because of illnesses.
103.) TOCOG won’t be praying for them to get well, just that God’s will be done.
104.) Ezekiel 33:10-11 “…If our transgressions and our sins be upon us, and we pine (waste) away in them (because of them), how should we then live?
“Say unto them (house of Israel), As I live, saith the Lord God, I have no pleasure in the death of the wicked; but that the wicked turn from his ways and live, turn ye, turn ye from your evil ways; for why will ye die…?” God wants repentance from evil ways.
105.) Psalm 78:33 says, “Therefore their days did he consume in vanity, and their years in trouble.” Days consumed in futility and terror couldn’t be good.
106.) Proverbs 14:12 tells us, “There is a way which seemeth right unto a man, but the end thereof is the way of death.”
107.) Gil’s Exposition of the Entire Bible has a commentary on Leviticus 26:16, which says, “I will even appoint over you…consumption, the burning ague that shall consume the eyes, and cause sorrow of heart: and ye shall sow your seed in vain, for your enemies shall eat it.”
108.) “Abenezra observes take these two designs that may affect the seed sown and the increase of it, such as blasting and mildew, because it follows you shall sew in vain, but no doubt diseases of the body are intended.
109.) “What King James Bible translates as “terror” in verse 16, does not signify terror of the mind, but some sudden hasty terrible distemper, perhaps the pestilence, as the targum of Jonathan. Some have thought of the “falling” sickness…because the word has the significance of haste and precipitance.
110.) “And it is a disease that is well-known among us and it’s known for its wasting and consuming nature.
111.) “Jarthi interprets it of a disease which swells the flesh. It either gills it with tumors or pustles.
112.) “ The Septuagint calls it the itch, or with wind and water, which has led some to think of the dropsy.
113.) “And the last of them seems to be the rightly rendered of the burning ague or fever, though the Septuagint takes it for the jaundice.”
114.) So this is what is happening in the Living Church of God. They’re all sick and this commentary just explained it. The Living Church of God is not feasting on this Sabbath, but because of “sorrow of the heart,” Leviticus 26:16, they are all fasting. They should be fasting in the middle of the week, but the answer is for them to repent of errors.
115.) God takes pleasure with obedience and not just with sacrifice, fasting with unrepented sins.
116.) I Corinthians 5:11-13 tells us that we are not to keep company with those who are sinners. We put away the wicked person because God judges those who are without.
117.) If anyone tries to abuse you, don’t take it. Don’t enable the abuser. Don’t worry if someone calls you names or casts dispersions on you.
118.) We are in a moment in history that could change the world. If The Obedient Church of God could get the Churches of God to get on board and not be tricked by Satan, therefore, we could now be having a humongous congregation, all of them praising God, instead of going through the Tribulation.
119.) But first the Churches of God have got to repent and they all need another helper. In John 14:16-17 says, “I will pray the Father, and he shall give you another Comforter, that he (it) may abide with you forever, even the Spirit of truth.” This helper is the Spirit of truth that The Obedient Church of God is preaching.
120.) People can’t repent on their own. The Churche of God need the helper, called “the Spirit of truth.”
121.) Regarding TOCOG being abused by Bob Thiel. Mr. Bob Thiel, it’ urgent for you to confront sin in your church. You can’t be unrepentant about it.
122.) Bear Note: A giant strong oak tree was just a little bud from a small acorn that stood its ground.
123.) Iraq was to be given freedom and Democracy. Yet, the United States has not in any time in its history destroyed a nation such a they have left ruin and misery behind their military presence in Iraq. There is no freedom. It’s unbelievable!
124.) They still don’t have electricity on a daily basis in Iraq. The reason is so the American contractors can bring in cement because the Iraqi cement plant can’t run and their construction companies can’t run because they don’t have any electricity to use.
So Iraqis have to pay the American contractors.
125.) The Americans went to Iraq to bring them freedom? Where is the freedom? The military people have only brought slaughter and killing and poverty and pollution.
126.) There is no Health Care in Iraq. There are deformed children and unknown diseases everywhere and no hospitals.
127.) The Iraqis use to have a Health Care System that was far better than the United States’ Health Care. Rated by government agencies the U. S. Health Care Center is rated 26th in the world. We are 20 nations behind Bolivia. In the American system, “It’s one for one and none for many.”
128.) At present the United States warmongering army is leaving Iraq after destroying the nation. They have no schools, no education, no smooth roads because they are all torn up because of the tanks.
129.) It’s been twenty years since 1991 and the United States brought Democracy to Iraq. They brought no freedom, only slaughter and killing to 1.5 million dead Iraqis. But only 183,000 have been reported killed or 242,000 killed. Only? They killed 183,000 innocent civilians. If a convoy of tanks is on the move, they just blew up anyone who happened to be in the way.
130.) The entire country of Iraq is covered with depleted uranium. They destroyed the whole city of Fallujah.
131.) Four million professional people (the doctors, lawyers, engineers, “the cream of the crop,” were driven out of Iraq. And they’ve divided up Iraq according to religion: two sects, Sunni and Shiite, of Islam.
132.) All major cities in Iraq have been destroyed. There are 2 million widows in Iraq. What happened to their husbands? It’s the norm now to sell and buy women in the flesh markets.
133.) People are trying to eat and survive. If anyone tries to protest, they shoot them with hot scalding water from canons.
134.) Sound bomb explosions occurred so that there aren’t any protestors. The Iraqis were protesting the Americans being there so they used sound bombs against the protestors, they used live ammunition, and they used hot scalding water with pressure from nozzles on hoses on trucks.
135.) The oppressive war-mongering U. S. army is leaving Iraq as a destroyed country: damage is clearly seen everywhere. The Iraqi war is over and 50,000 soldiers left jubilantly! The lie is that all the troops are home.
136.) There are 16,000 U. S. A. private mercenaries staying in Iraq. They are worse than any army. One time the mercenaries killed 16 civilians who couldn’t get out of the way fast enough at an intersection because they just wanted to drive through.
137.) There was $806 billion spent for the hundreds of thousands to be killed and wounded. Not to mention the trillions spent on Afghanistan. Violence was horrible.
138.) We need Yeshua to come back.
139.) Mr. Lawrence A. Nowell was against these types of wars back in the 1970s with Dr.Fred Kelley.He had been adamant against these neo conservative wars for forty years
140.) Back then Mr. Nowell had a book, Doctor Dracola, that told about after World War II American bombers were told not to bomb the four ball-bearing plants that were making parts for the Germans.
141.) Now we have the staggering destruction of a whole country, the true cost of the Iraq war with the United States saying it is withdrawing the last of its troops from Iraq. They are liars. There are 16,000 mercenaries there.
142.) There’s a city called the American Embassy with its own landing strips. Amazing!
143.) Iraq, just to let you know how bad it is, has been in the throws of a civil war and it’s going to get worse.
144.) On Wiki Leaks we’ve seen where a helicopter just shoots down the 8 innocent Iraqis. They were trying to take a wounded man to the hospital and two reporters were killed, a common practice. Out of the ruins of Iraq there is nothing but misery left.
145.) The coalition deaths are 4,803. The U.S. A. deaths are 4,484 and the U. S. A. wounded are 32,200. Remember when this was going on and they said it was “a surge”? A surge of 30,000 troops. Mr. Nowell said it wasn’t a surge at all. It was replacement troops for all the wounded Americans who couldn’t fight anymore. And they lied by saying it was “a surge.”
146.) There were 10,125 Iraqi security ford3 or ISF deaths. A total of ISF and Coalition deaths were at least 15,000 (14,926). Here is the big lie. Iraqi civilian deaths were between 103,000 and 113,000. Actually, there have been 1.5 million Iraqi deaths.
147.) The eternally displaced persons (the professional people) 1.24 million. Wrong. There were 2.24 million. Official record of refugees were 1,6 million. Wrong. 4 million.
148.) The neo cons used “lesser magic” by putting this name,Operation Iraqi Liberation
(oil) right in our face, and then laughed at us because it is about oil. Then that name was changed to “Operation Iraqi Freedom.”
149.) For the poor American soldiers who got shot up and blown up, because they’ve got body armor on, most of them had been shot in the head. The projectd total cost of Veteran’s health care and disability was $717 billion and they are going to drain the system to be cared for.
150.) And yet people are rejoicing we are leaving Iraq. The U. S. did not bring freedom to Iraq. We only brought slaughter and killing, poverty, and pollution to Iraq! And we left behind16,000 mercenaries. There are lying devils in the United States Government, who are smiling devils.
151.) There is one particular black white smiling devil and he really has done it this time in terms of an act that he passed this week. Now a person can be picked up without charge and held in detention for a year and a half at least like Bradley Manning.
152.) Here’s what’s going to be passed this week. In the Congressional Act it says that you as an American citizen, and even worse than that, that anyone in the whole world, can be picked up without charge and without trial and be incarcerated by the United States. This includes anyone in Canada, anyone in England, anyone in France, anyone in the United States, and anywhere in the world. Welcome to the New World Order.
153.) When we get put in prison, we can be beaten, tortured, and abused.
154.) Bear Note: Obama reserves himself if the administration won’t veto local battlefield in definite detention measure.
155.) The Obama administration Tuesday reversed itself and said it would not veto a major 2012 consent bill that expands the American military authority to arrest suspected terrorists anywhere in the world. (That could be anyone one of us. It could be Mr. Nowell because he is speaking out against the abusers.)
156.) A person can be picked up and held indefinitely without charge or a right to a civilian trial. Jail first, without charge, sentence first, trial later.
157.) Welcome to Alice’s Wonderland. Welcome to the Red Queen. Welcome to the insanity of the mad Red Queen. It’s a made Devil that is in charge here in the U. S. A.
158.) Jay Carney Press Secretary of the United States, said in a written statement, “We have concluded that the Defense Bill’s language does not challenge or constrain the President’s ability to collect intelligence, incapacitate dangerous terrorists, and protect the American people.”
159.) The President’s senior advisors will not recommend a veto.
160.) Two weeks ago Press Secretary Jay Carney told reporters that Obama stood by the veto threat, that Obama would veto this legislation.
161.) Now the reversal. The White House will subject the President to have the incarceration of Americans on American soil.
162.) There’s an agreement with Canada to allow Canadian troops to cross the Canadian border and seize anyone that they suspect to be a dangerous terrorist.
163.) Mr. Lawrence A. Nowell is a “dangerous terrorist” because he is telling people the truth.
164.) If Obama signs the bill, which he is, the last time such a bill was signed by Congress for indefinite detention legislation was in the McCarthy era. But President Truman had the courage (guts) to veto it.
165.) Obama says he is not going to veto the bill.The bill language says, and this is from Press Secretary Jay Carney, “Ability to…incapacitate dangerous terrorists.”
166.) Remember Amalaky who was a terrorist, he was an “American citizen, and he should have been brought to trial, tried, and then sentenced. But the deliberately killed him first.
167.) Now we’ve got this bill before congress that Obama says he’s not going to veto, although two weeks ago Obama said he was going to veto it. Satan has turned the screws in Obama’s head now and I think Satan has really entered Obama.
168.) On December 14th the U. S. Administration came out saying that they will go after Americans on American soil and hold them indefinitely without charge, and also in Canada, and around the world. It doesn’t matter if it is France, Germany, or wherever and hold them without charge or the right to a trial. It is detention without trial.
169.) Welcome to Alice in Wonderland and the Red Queen who is in charge of President of the United States. Sentence first. Trial later. We see how Satanic the worldwide authority is. This new Beast Power is coming in.
170.) The ACLU (American Civil Liberties Union) senior legal legislative Council, Christopher Andre, said, “This is a worldwide authority provision—no corner of the world is off limits.”
171.) With United States citizens the hope would be that there would be Constitutional protections that could apply. But that kind of challenge is still very uncertain under U. S. law and would take years for such legislation to work it through the courts.
172.) The candidate Obama pledged to end the use of the U. S. military prison at Guantanamo Bay, but he is now not only supporting it, he is expanding it on U.S. soil!
173.) Bear Note: The bill would require military detention for terrorist suspects.
174.) It would, if enacted into law, significantly change the way the U. S. approached detention in a so-called “law of war context.” The legislation envisions the military role as current in future conflicts.
175.) Andrew Parso of Human Rights Watch said, “Concluding, it would lead to the expansion of Guantanamo (Cuba) not its closure.”
176.) The United States is not a Democracy. It’s never been a Democracy. The Wall Street protesters are protesting that we are supposed to have First Amendment rights, freedom of assembly, freedom of speech. Instead, they get pepper sprayed and dragged away and put into prison. Welcome to the New World Order.
177.) Currently, the world is in the “birth pangs” of the New World Order; the seven years of Tribulation haven’t started yet.
178.) There’s only one hope. The Bible command, “Touch not the Lord’s anointed,” appears in Psalm 105:15.
179.) Starting in verse 10, the Lord “…confirmed the same (the Lord’s oath regarding his covenant) unto Jacob for a law, and to Israel for an everlasting covenant: saying, unto thee will I give the land of Canaan, the lot of your inheritance: when they were but a few men in number; yea, very few, and strangers in it. When they went from one nation to another, from one kingdom to another people; He suffered (allowed) no man to do them wrong; yea, he reproved kings for their sakes; saying, Touch not mine anointed, and do my prophets no harm.” This verse gives us hope in The Obedient Church of God.
180.) The history of the Bible is clear that to touch “the Lord’s anointed” is to commit
a physical act of violence against one that has been anointed by God. This does not refer to those who verbally attack and criticize.
181.) So The Obedient Church of God can expect to be verbally attacked and criticized by the Living Church of God. But the passage in Psalm 105, verse 15, “Touch not God’s Anointed,” it is clear that they have been commanded not to do physical violence against one of the anointed of God.
182.) Verbal attacks can be quite strong and sinful. In Matthew 15:6 even Jesus called the Pharisees “hypocrites” because, in following their tradition, they made the commandment of God on none effect. And verse 9 says, “In vain do they worship me, teaching for doctrines, the commandments of men.”
183.) Luke 16:14-15 tells that when the covetous Pharisees “derided” Jesus, he said to them, “Ye are they which justify yourselves before me, but God knoweth your hearts: for that which is highly esteemed among men is abomination in the sight of God.”
184.) Matthew 3:7 says, “When he (John the Baptist) saw many of the Pharisees and Sadducees come to his baptism, he said unto them O generation of vipers…”
185.) Saul was the Lord’s anointed man to be king over Israel, but he became David’s enemy. Once Saul was delivered into David’s hand and his servant, Abishai, wanted to kill King Saul with the spear. “And, in I Samuel 26:9, David said to Abishai, Destroy him not: for who can stretch forth his hand against the Lord’s anointed, and be guiltless?”
186.) David would not allow Saul to be harmed. “The Lord forbid that I should stretch forth mine hand against the Lord’s anointed.” The point is there is a scripture that says that violence should not done to God’s anointed. God will not allow it.
187.) Verse 10 says, “As the Lord liveth, the Lord shall smite him or his day shall come to die, or he shall descend into battle and perish.”
188.) David was willing for judgment to be executed against Saul, but David was not talking about the judgment of somebody criticizing Saul or disagreeing with Saul.
189.) We can disagree with the United States Government or criticize or print an article in opposition to the U.S. Government, not to the United States, but to the politicians.
190.) If we speak against Mr. Armstrong’s sins, or tell about Mr. Armstrong’s sin that he was fornicating with his daughter Dorothy for ten years, that is fine. As long as we do not smite the man, we can print an article in opposition the man’s doctrines.
191.) Don’t let any minister get on his high horse and start saying The Obedient Church of God can’t talk against the other churches. What TOCOG can’t do would be to be a boxer and go down there and punch the minister out. Can’t do that.
192.) Mr. Lawrence A. Nowell can speak out about erroneous doctrines churches teach
193.) When we hear so much whining from preachers who warn their followers and critics not to touch God’s anointed, referring to themselves, what do they have to hide?
194.) Church of God ministers think that they can’t have anyone shed the flashlight or the light of day on their sins, such as, moving the Sabbath to the sixth- day in half the world. They think no one can criticize them or find their evil deeds reprehensible.
195.) TOCOG does rebuke a preacher who commits the error of teaching false doctrine We are supposed to. And we are not to let them continue on practicing sin. The word “rebuke” is appropriate and even commanded in certain instances.
196.) When Peter went to Antioch, he was stood up to his face by Paul because he was to be blamed. Mr. Bob Thiel of the Living Church of God was supposed to be blamed for all the sickness and disease among their church members. Mr. Bob Thiel was blamed because he refused to pass the information on to his associate Rod Meredith.
197.) Galatians 2:11 says, “When Peter was come to Antioch, I (Paul) withstood him to thre face, because he was to be blamed.” Verse 14 continues, “But when I (Paul) saw that they walked not uprightly according to the truth of the gospel, I (Paul) said to Peter before them all…”
198.) Paul saw that Peter was not straight forward with the truth, Paul said to Peter before them all, look folks, you speak out. You don’t let anyone back you up telling you to repent or that you shouldn’t speak out.
199.) What we shouldn’t do is hit the minister, nor punch out the lying “sinister.” But we definitely speak out, rebuke the one in error sharply that he may be found in the faith.
200.) What do we do against elders? We take a couple of witnesses along with us.
I Timothy 5:19-20; 22 says, “Against an elder receive not an accusation, but before two or three witnesses. Them that sin rebuke before all, that others also may fear…Lay hands suddenly on no man, neither be partaker of other men’s sins: keep thyself pure.”
201.) So once The obedient Church of God is through with the Living Church of God, we’ll more on to the United Church of God and see what happens there. And if the United Church of God starts falling down sick for disobedience, TOCOG will move on to the Philadelphia Church of God.
202.) Mr. Lawrence A. Nowell is humbly going to racket this out. That’s the way it’s going to be. And he is only going to racket it up against televangelists and ecumenical evangelists and he’ll see where this all leads to. We know that if we have truth on our side, we are going to be successful.
203.) If people have got Devil days, TOCOG has to tell them to stop observing them. That includes Sky-Father’s Day and Mother-goddess Day, and parents have to tell their children not to send flowers or a card on those days because these are not acceptable,
because they are of the Devil.
204.) If ministers are moving the Sabbath Day to the sixth-day in half the world and they know about it and refuse to put it back to the seventh-day, the way it was before 1883, they are of the Devil. And this includes Bob Thiel, leader of Living Church of God.
205.) Mr. Lawrence A. Nowell is rebuking them sharply, and we have every right to rebuke ministers who err in their doctrines so that they may be sound in the faith.
206.) Mr. Lawrence A. Nowell never intended to have a church, but after Triumph Prophetic Ministries disfellow-shipped him for not observing Thanksgiving Day, the Devil’s Turkey Day for Ra-Osiris, there wasn’t anywhere else to go.
207.) The angel told the church in Philadelphia, which The Obedient Church of God is, the message in Revelation 3:7-8. “These things saith he that is holy, he that is true, he that has the key of David, he that opens, and no man shuts and no man opens. I know your works, behold I have set before you an open door, and no man can shut it: for you have a little strength, and have kept my word, and have not denied my name.”
208.) Verse 9 continues, “Behold, I will make them of the synagogue of Satan, which say they are Jews (who say they are keeping God’s Holy Days, but are not observing the new crescent moons nor are they keeping them on the proper days), and are not, but do lie;”
209.) They are not keeping the Sabbath day on the seventh-day of the week in half the world. They say they are (spiritual) Jews, and are not, I will make them to come and worship before my feet, and to know that I have loved thee. Who? The Obedient Church of God, which is the only remnant group that is identical to First Century Christians. We are the only ones.
210.) So now with strength, we’ll never take abuse from and abuser, never b afraid, that as the wife would say,“If only I’d kept quiet, he wouldn’t have hit me.” No. We speak up and rebuke him sharply.
211.) That’s the sermon for today.
212.) We sing from our beautiful fuchsia-colored 1934 Hymn Book and sing to Father with Yeshua at His right side, “For Even From My Youth, O God.”
213.) For closing prayer we rise, raise our hands with palms up, bow our heads and close our eyes, and face the north heavens.
“Almighty and most merciful Father, praise, power, glory, and dominion to you forever. Thank you for The Obedient Church of God, which I (Mr. Nowell) humbly am part of. Please call in others so that this small work will be blessed, do it in accordance with your will and in accordance with your timing.
214.) “Help the Living Church of God to repent. We are supposed to pray for the enemies and we are praying for them and we are praying that Thy will be done and they repent, and that you work this all out.
215.) “I, Mr. Lawrence A. Nowell, will start on the United Church of God in the next week, and we’ll see where this all leads, step by step, Father.
216.) “Now we ask you to give us protection from the police authorities, from the sheriff, from the Blount County Storm-water Inspectors, from the Tennessee Department of the Environment (state officials), and from the Alcoa Police Department, the Townsend Police Department, the Maryville Police Department, where a person can’t even move around Townsend without passing a cruiser.
217.) “Father, thank you for bringing us here. This area is turning into a real interesting spot. So please protect us and keep us out of the clutches of the authority.
218.) “Thank you for the money you brought in all this week to cover all the bills.
219.) “Keep blessing the people in Pakistan. Help them to get a good price on their purchases for food for this month. Help this to work out that they are obedient to you.
220.) Help them to understand the truth about Christmas. They wanted to obey your ways, and now they are finding out it’s not baby Jesus who was born in December, that it is a Satanic day in honor of sun worship.
221.) Now they have to switch their whole belief system around about that name. They knew about Christmas before, but Mr. Nowell hadn’t commented on it before.
Father, turn their minds so they can understand the truth.
222.) The Pakistani brethren are keeping your Sabbath Day on Sunday, which is the seventh-day in Pakistan. So they are obedient. Help them to become more obedient.
223.) “Help the Living Church of God to become more onedient. Help your great plan to be worked out through The Obedient Church of God.
224.) “How do you find your church? Look for the words: “TO Church of God.”
225.) “We put this work into your hands, Father, and we ask for your dismissal and your blessings on the members of TOCOG and all those listeners you are calling. We ask this now in Yeshua’s holy righteous name, Yeshua ha Moshiach, our soon coming warrior king who will smash this evil system and all its evil governments and all of its evil leaders. We ask this in Yeshua’s holy righteous name. Amen.
