February 18, 2012, Sermon Transcript

By Lawrence A. Nowell

1.)    “The stars in the sky don’t mean nothing to you. They’re a mirror. I don’t want to preach about it, how you broke God’s heart. If I preach to you a little bit longer, if I preach, won’t you listen to God’s heart, God’s heart?”

2.)    This is The Obedient Church of God broadcasting worldwide on the internet from theworldtomorro.org and 1stcenturychristian.com going to all of the nations in the world, including our brethren in Pakistan. Welcome to The Obedient Church of God.

3.)    “I don’t want to talk about it, how you broke God’s heart. If we preach to you a little bit longer, if we preach, won’t you listen to God’s heart, God’s heart, God’s heart?”

4.)    Yes, you are breaking God’s heart by your continued disobedience of keeping Sky Father’s day, and Mother-goddess Day, and moving the Sabbath Day to the sixth-day in half the world. You’ve got to repent. We’re going to preach until you do repent.

5.)    “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?”

6.)    Yes, you are breaking God’s heart by your continued disobedience of keeping Sky Father’s Day, and Mother-goddess Day, and moving the Sabbath day to the sixth-day in half the world. You’ve got to repent. We’re going to preach until you do repent.

7.)    “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?”

8.)    TOCOG members are the only ones in the world that are teaching the correct gospel because we are not moving the Sabbath day to the sixth-day in half of the world.

9.)    Every offshoot of the Worldwide Church of God is breaking the test commandment for those people who live west of the International Date Line. [Transcriber’s Note: Imaginary line in the Pacific Ocean put in place in 1883. West of the line days are 24 hours ahead.]

10.)                        TOCOG is the true work of God because the other denominations refuse to celebrate the Sabbath properly on the seventh-day in half of the world. How clear could it be that TOCOG is the end-time “short work” of Romans 9:28!

11.)                        We want to enter the Throne Room so it is necessary for us to raise up our hands in prayer and introduce ourselves to the Father by standing before him on this holy Sabbath Day, the seventh-day today. All please rise and face the North Heavens where Father is. We raise our palms forward and arms outstretched, head bowed, eye closed.

12.)                        “Almighty, merciful, magnificent Father, you control every planet, every myriad of the hundreds of thousands of angelic beings. You made small and little animals and the largest whales, and elephants right down to the tiniest animals like rabbits and raccoons that are so beautiful.

13.)                        “Praise be to you for all mankind you created for this wonderful planet given to us to use. Thank you for that. Thank you for the air we breathe. Thank you for the peace that we have temporarily now before the “seven years” starts.

14.)                        “Help us to use this time to grow to be like you so we can be in your family. Please, please help us to grow and learn to be formed like you.

15.)                        “We ask for your protection of the brethren in Pakistan, 160 adults and 200, including children. Eight of them were murdered four years ago for being Christians. Help them and we pray for you to put your angels around them for they are in a very dangerous area.

16.)                        “Please inspire our service today. We want to go through the salient points you want us to get through and preach your doctrine, your word as we try to turn these stubborn people around to try to get them to start coming to your feasts three times a year like the Bible says. Help us to get the message to them.

17.)                        “Inspire the speaking. Inspire the hearing so the people can respond and help them to not harden their hearts. Help inspire the hearing on the video tapes later.

18.)                        “Now Father we turn this service over into your hands and we ask it all in Yeshua’s holy righteous name, our only hope. We ask it in his name forever. Amen.”


19.)                        Now that we are in the Throne room, we want to praise Father. Therefore, we turn our 1934 hymnals to “Praise God’s Name” of whom we serve. And we serve him by obedience, not just by yapping about it.

20.)                        We turn in our hymnals to “His Mercy Never Fails,” O give thanks unto the Lord.

Singing is the “fruit of the sacrifice of our lips.”

21.)                         Give thanks to the Lord for he is the one who saved Israel from the New World Order of their time by taking over the world. He is the one who will save us from the New World Order that is taking over the world in our time.

22.)                        Therefore, we want to sing “By the Waters of Babylon” because we are in a state of time right now where we are under the NDA Act (National Defense Authorization Act) where we can be picked up, locked up, put in jail and the key thrown away without a trial, without a lawyer, and without any charges.

23.)                        We can be picked up and put in prison under the NDA Act. It’s worse than in Pharaoh’s time. At least they could see Pharaoh coming and they could fight and kill him, kill all of his army if they had to. Today the NDAA can lock up people one by one.

24.)                        When the Jews in Germany were told to move into the ghetto or get shot, they moved into the ghetto. Not too bad to live in the ghetto, they thought.  When the Jews were told to get on the rail cars, they went to see what would happen when they arrived at their destination.

25.)                        If they were told to go to the slave labor, they complied instead of fighting back.

26.)                        Jews who fought back with guns had a chance to survive, while others did not. The Jews who died did nothing.

27.)                        We must realize there is a time to be wise and there’s a time to fight back, and there’s a time to escape if we have to. During the seven years there will be a time to escape, and TOCOG will be telling people when to escape, where to escape, and how.

28.)                        Mr. Lawrence A. Nowell wants to see Christ come back. He wants to see Yeshua arrive on the clouds. He wants to be alive rather than be in the ground waiting for the first resurrection.

29.)                        Now we are by the waters of Babylon, and we wept as we sat down here and hung our harps on the willow trees. Therefore, all of us under the NDA Act have no rights and we’re treated just like slaves and can be locked up at any time.

30.)                        The Obedient Church of God uses the 1934 Hymnals, which has two verses to the song “By the Waters of Babylon” instead of three. TOCOG members don’t sing the third verse because we believe the salient points are direct in the first two verses and in the third verse these have been watered down in the newer revised version.

31.)                        The 1934 Hymnals are very direct and powerful and that’s why we use them.

32.)                        Now that we have entered the Throne room and have given our praises to God the Father, we, humbly, are going to preach God’s truth because nobody else is.

33.)                        No one else is telling people that they can’t celebrate Sky Father’s Day; no one else is telling them that they can’t celebrate Mother-goddess Day; no one else is telling them that they can’t celebrate Turkey-god Day, and no one else is telling them that they can’t move the Sabbath to the sixth-day in half of the world.

34.)                        On the positive side no one else is telling people to celebrate New Moon Day when the East gate was opened, the same as on the Sabbath Day. No one else is telling them to attend the feasts three times a year like the Bible states.  So which church is preaching God’s truth?

35.)                        Since the other churches are against the above points that Mr. Lawrence A. Nowell has reiterated, none of them are teaching truth.

36.)                        The Bible says the males are to attend before the Lord three times a year, but no one is responding. The Bible’s words are to be followed. People are to return to the Lord.

37.)                        People are going into the Tribulation and will be beheaded, because they have been told God’s commands and they are not responding. Realize how serious this is.

Not only has the world gone to hell, but the churches have gone to hell, moving the Sabbath to the sixth-day, and males refusing to attend God’s feasts three times a year.

38.)                        Mr. Lawrence A. Nowell bids you “Farewell” if you continue to refuse to obey God. You are going to go into Tribulation and you are going to die as fools. You want to celebrate Turkey Day? You want to celebrate Sky Father’s Day? Mother-goddess Day?

39.)                        You don’t want to celebrate New Moon Day, God’s calendar day, but you want to celebrate Devil Days.

40.)                        What is this sin that I’m seeing in my eyes? Of all your pagan practices? The “sinisters” don’t even know what sin is. They are “white-washed walls.” They are devils masquerading as minister, saying they will move the Sabbath to the sixth-day, the big test commandment, which determines whether people will be going into a place of safety or not.

41.)                        The mark is God’s Sabbath day, and that includes New Moon Days, and yet you “sinisters” disobey God’s words, and you have the audacity to call yourselves ministers. You are not ministers, you are “sinisters” who are killing God’s sheep. You are causing God’s sheep to die by telling God’s sheep that it is just fine to sin.

42.)                        The problem with all you “ex-Worldwiders” is you want to hold on to error that will cause you to be thrown into the Lake of Fire!

43.)                        Religion is a good thing for good people, but a bad thing for bad people, like the bad people in the Living Church of God, the bad people in the United Church of God, the bad people in Triumph Prophetic Ministry, the bad people in the Church of God the Eternal. They are all suffering from the disease of disobedience.

44.)                         It’s worse than that because it is willful disobedience and they will die eternally.

Mr. Lawrence A. Nowell says this on the authority of God’s Word, Hebrews 10:26. You refuse, you refuse to follow God’s way, so there’s no sacrifice for sin. The Bible says so! You refuse to follow God’s ways.

45.)                        Mr. Lawrence A. Nowell is speaking out against all the other denominations because the “proof is in the pudding.” They are all headed straight into the Lake of Fire and people follow them like lemmings. They tell people it is fine to move God’s Sabbath to the sixth day in half the world. Not! Not! Not!

46.)                        In 1880 the Sabbath Day was held on the seventh day in the whole world. In 1883 it was moved in half the world by the phony International Date Line. When a person leaves the L.A. International Airport and flies to Australia, bang! the day jumps ahead 24 hours.

47.)                        There is only one church teaching that God’s test commandment should be kept on the seventh-day everywhere.

48.)                        People have to have some “guts” and get out of these pagan disobedient churches. It’s that simple. You’ve got to be brave. A brave man, a valiant man, dies only once, but a coward dies a thousand times. Shakespear’s Julius Caesar.

49.)                        We all die, but TOCOG is going out with a bang for proclaiming Yah’s truth. TOCOG proclaims that the New World Order is Satanic and the offshoot Churches of God are all Satanic because they are willfully breaking God’s Sabbath Day.

50.)                        This is a message from God where Mr. Lawrence A. Nowell is quoting from the Bible where the simplest test commandment is “Remember the Sabbath Day to keep it holy,” and the people have to wait until the shadow of the sun goes down (on the sixth-day) before the seventh day starts in half the world or else Christ would arrive in China before he arrived in Jerusalem. It’s that ridiculous.

51.)                        Are you going to go down the narrow road or are you going to go down the wide road to destruction by sticking with your “sinister” church. This is a witness against you.

52.)                        So if you are not prepared to follow God‘s Bible, turn this broadcast off right now because you are only going to get into more trouble as you hear more things that are in the Bible that the “sinisters” are refusing to preach.

53.)                        Get out of Satan’s ways: Sky-Father’s Day. When your children call you on Sky-Father’s Day, hang up on them. Don’t participate in it, don’t say, “Thank you for calling,” because they’ve been told by you not to bother you on Sky Father’s Day.

54.)                        You’ve told your children not to bother you on Mother-goddess Day, the Mother of all gods, nor on Turkey-god Day.

55.)                        You can not use practices that are pagan, which you have looked up in the Encyclopedia and say you are going to use them for God. If they’ve been used in the pagan religion, they cannot be used. You can’t make any excuses that you are going to use them to honor God You can’t.

56.)                        You can’t use Thanksgiving Day when you serve a turkey that goes back to Osiris-Ra and the Cosmic Goose that laid the egg that Osiris-Ra came from in honor of God. If it had a pagan background, you cannot duplicate it, and say it is used for God!

57.)                        If you do this you are “vomit material,” and God will vomit you out of his mouth. Get out of Satan’s ways. Get Satan’s celebrations out of your mind, out of your days, out of your ways.

58.)                        Psalm 23, The Lord is my Shepherd ho leads me in right paths.

59.)                        Someone is leading     you into the darkness. You figure out who. You figure out if the United Church of God, Living Church of God , Triumph Prophetic Ministry, Churxh of God the Eternal is leading you into the light or into darkness? To break the fourth commandment, your big test commandment.

60.)                        If they know about this, which they do because Mr. Lawrence A. Nowell has told them, and since they refuse to change, what does that tell you about these people? Answer. They are the Devil’s children. They are children of the Devil!

61.)                        They moved the Sabbath Day to the sixth-day. They know about it; they refuse to change. It is the will of their Father the Devil, but they do not the will of God. It makes Mr. Nowell’s heart sick when he has to think on these things during the week about what he should say and not say on the services. But since the time is getting shorter he has to speak out.

62.)                        The “seven years” (of Tribulation) haven’t started yet, folks, so if you are going to try to repent at the last minute, forget it, because you won’t have the character. It takes years to build character.

63.)                        These Worldwide Church of God offshoots are so corrupt by celebrating Devil Days and moving God’s Sabbath and using “potential visibility.”

64.)                         There isn’t such a thing as “potential visibility,” because you’ve got the command from God that you need four “eyeballs” of two witnesses (to see the crescent moon in Jerusalem.) That’s what our instructional manual says. Use two witnesses to see the new moon, nothing else. Don’t let the ministers change your mind.

65.)                          Please read the Bible. The appearance of the crescent moon must be seen by witnesses,. It doesn’t say it has to be confirmed by mathematical calculations. It says to be confirmed by two witnesses.

66.)                        Bear Note: The only thing you will take into the kingdom when you die or you are raised into the air, is your character, your mind. You will be given a spirit body.

67.)                        Don’t let these “sinisters” change your mind about Devil Days or you won’t be raised into the air, you’ll be thrown into the Lake of Fire. So set your mind to never cave in to a “sinister.” The ministers are wolves.

68.)                        Side Bar: The Obedient Church of God started on Passover at the first of the year in 2010. The first broadcast was March 31, 2010. This is so significant because that is a 19 year time cycle.

69.)                        In 1934, January 7th on Satan’s calendar, the Radio Church of God started. Mr. Herbert Armstrong started the Worldwide Church of God, but they refused to follow the truth so God allowed it to start in the middle of winter, not when all the lambs are born in the springtime.

70.)                        In 1953 the Radio Church of God went to all of Europe.

71.)                        In 1972 Ambassador Auditorium, God House (antitype of the temple) was built and dedicated.

72.)                        In 1991 God’s whole plan was destroyed by the Worldwide Church of God leaders preaching that we are not of the God-being Family, we are now a physical human family. And that was a paradigm shift that now we are considered one big human family. 

73.)                        The theme at the Feast of Tabernacles in 1991 was “We Are Family”, instead of we are human beings striving to be in God’s Family, to learn how to be in God’s Family. Now that we are all family everything is wonderful . See how subtly deceptive this was?

[Transcriber’s Note: Mr. Joseph Tkach Sr. had replaced the deceased Herbert Armstrong.] 

74.)                        What happened in 2010? The first service by The Obedient Church of God started on Passover night after we had been forgiven by Christ’s sacrifice for all our disobedience, for the last years, since 1934.  

75.)                        TOCOG began on Passover night, after the lambs had all been slaughtered at 3 p.m. in the afternoon, starting the first Day of Unleavened Bread. We held God’s sacred Passover service with the bread and wine elements for the forgiveness of sin.

76.)                        Bear Note: You have Passover on the first night of the Days of Unleavened Bread, which is the evening before the first day of unleavened bread. First there is night  and then there is day as mentioned in Genesis, the way God had done it.

77.)                        We, The Obedient Church of God, started and washed ourselves clean of all the pagan practices on the first night of unleavened bread. And we got a “running start” and have been repenting ever since as we learn new rediscovered truths of God.

78.)                        On the TOCOG broadcasts people are hearing the truth about moving the Sabbath to the sixth-day in half the world. This cannot be done. Don’t let those “sinisters” tell you that you can. [Transcriber’s Note: In the 1800s local solar time was changed to standardized time, used in 1883. The world was divided into 24 time zones.] 

79.)                        The only thing you are going to take into the Kingdom is your mind. Yah will not accept you as his bride if you have a fouled-up mind.

80.)                        If a man wanted a wife who was of a different religion, he would be very foolish to marry her because he would be asking for trouble. Yah will not marry a person unless he or she has a mind that is in harmony with his way of life.

81.)                        There is no ecumenicalism. Some of these foolish ministers say that if only people would believe in God, they will all come up in the resurrection and they will all be in God’s Kingdom because they are doing their best. No. No. No.

82.)                        The disobedient will not inherit the Kingdom, whether the disobedient know it or not. They will have to go through the second resurrection, and learn everything and prove they are obedient.

83.)                        How can you prove you are obedient if you are not doing anything? How can God test you with His Word and put you into his family if you haven’t passed the test yet and read the book? Of course, you won’t be in his family.

84.)                        Going back into the Worldwide Church of God, all the people were so disobedient and then all the different offshoots will have to either have to be thrown into the Lake of Fire or they will all be going into the second resurrection. The ministers that are leading, it would be better a millstone was put around each one’s neck.

85.)                        There is no ecumenicalism allowed in God’s Bible. There is only one faith, only one doctrine, there is only one way. And if you haven’t learned that, you’ve got to learn it in the second resurrection, and prove to Yahveh and Father that you will follow it. 

86.)                        So all the Living Church of God, all of the United Church of God, all of the Triumph Prophetic Ministries, all of the Philadelphia  Church of God, Church of God the Eternal are NOT coming up in the First Resurrection. The proof is that they are moving the Sabbath Day to the sixth –day, and that’s the big test commandment. You can’t deny it that they are moving the Sabbath Day to the sixth-day. It is that simple.

87.)                        If you break the fourth commandment, the test commandment, and there are actually blessings associated with keeping the Sabbath as well as curses, get it into your head that you will not be in the first resurrection. If you are part of a denomination that is breaking God’s Sabbath-day by keeping it on the sixth-day in half the world, that is what a devil would do.

88.)                        You are belonging to your father the Devil if it is your will to do the Devil’s wishes to move the Sabbath Day to the sixth-day in half of the world. So you are of your father the Devil. This may be jarring to some people, but look at the facts. The facts are clear.

 *  *  *

89.)  John the Baptist ate locusts and honey. Here is some good news on honey. If you start your day with eating honey in the morning, you will be revitalized in strength, in mind, and in spirit. Take one tablespoon of honey in the morning mixed with your green tea or just water, if you prefer, and you will be like Popeye.

90.) When Popeye ate his spinach (honey for us) one arm would spring out, the other arm would spring out, one leg would spring out and then the other leg would spring out. He was revitalized! Popeye was invigorated for the day. Honey taken in the morning will invigorate us.

91.) Another rediscovered truth here: start your day with honey. [Transcriber’s Note: use raw honey, that is, natural honey that has not been preheated, and will become sugary.]

92.) What does the world start their day with? In the United States 400 million cups of coffee are consumed each day. People are so debilitated that they are just pushing themselves along with energy drinks. [Transcriber’s Note: caffeine gives energy by taking “sugar” out of the liver and muscles to give the body a feeling of being energized. Too much caffeine debilitates body.]

93.) People can put honey in a cup of coffee and get a “double whammy” for being energized.

                                                                                 *  *  *

94.) The Obedient Church of God has enough money to handle right now. TOCOG would love to have your tithes and offerings but it is up to the individual. TOCOG  isn’t interested in making any more money.

95.) If you give your tithes and offerings to the Devil’s churches, you won’t be blessed. People who fly to Tennessee to be with The Obedient Church of God, are blessed. They end up having a synthesizer, they end up having a computer, they are blessed by having a lot of things.

96.) The Obedient Church of God has concern for others. But if your “sinister” is not telling you to repent, and instead is telling you to follow Devil Days, and move God’s Sabbath, he has no concern for you.

97.) What some of these ministers have is “possessive individualism” with no concern for others. It is borderline psychosis.

98.) Bear Note: It’s going to be their way, their pronouncements, and not God’s ways.

99.) A psychopath has no concern for others and if anything gets in their way, they just stomp it out.

100.) It is evident on Wall Street where there is no concern for others. They don’t care. They are going to have their way. It’s going to be what they decide. And they have no concern for the thousands of people that are hurt by their “possessive individualism” versus humanitarianism.

101.) The Wall Street “banksters” are going down the tubes. They are yapping about a new budget. Still 40 cents out of every one of our dollars is going to support the military when you factor in all of the major costs. And that’s not factoring in all the men that are hospitalized.

102.) Remember when the news reported there would be a “surge of 30,000 troops” to be sent to Iraq? Mr. Lawrence A. Nowell said there wasn’t any surge. They were “replacement troops” because over 30,000 troops were made invalids, injured so badly they had to be hospitalized. So they had to send in 30,000 more troops to make up for the 30,000 that were crippled and couldn’t fight!

103.) This system is so evil no one is seeing these things except God’s Church. TOCOG has God’s knowledge. God shows us these things.

104.) In the last depression all your gold was confiscated, if they needed your vehicle, it was confiscated; all rubber and metal was scooped up for the war effort.

105.) Bear Note: The New World Order coming wants                                                                                          1.)  Abolition of all current government;                                                                                                                     2.) All private property could be abolished;                                                                                                      3.) Abolition of inheritance could occur if they need money;                                                                        4.) Abolition of patriotism for our country will definitely happen and we’ll all be part of a one new world order;                                                                                                                                                                 5.) There will be abolition of morality;                                                                                                        6.) Abolition of marriage; and                                                                                                                     7.) Abolition of family.

106.) 8.) Under the New World Order there will be communal education for children; this is being brought in surreptitiously now because it take two people working to make 20% less than when one person was working in the 1950s. (This is just like in Germany when Hitler had both parents going off to work and the children were put in day care.)

107.) 9.) All religion will be abolished.

108.) These points show what we can expect from the New World Order and they will track everyone wherever a person goes so they will know each person’s activities. 

109.) If you don’t want to be tracked, get “cloak of Athena” for your “smart phone” or any type of phone, and get a little pouch for your phone.

110.) People’s every movement is going to be tracked into a master computer. It’s already being used in countries like Afghanistan.

111.) Drones are flying in the United States. They can see your house, they can see your car parked in the driveway. And on the better software they are able to read your license plate. They can actually read writing on a dime on the road.

112.) We all need our cell phones or our “droids,” short for androids. Mr. Lawrence A. Nowell needs a droid for his job and his work; he needs it to be mobile. Here’s how a droid works: on the camera just swipe and it brings up the picture, which you just scroll to what you want.

113.) If Mr. Lawrence A. Nowell was in a strange town and wanted a restaurant, he could scroll his droid to tell him what was there. Also he can obtain all kinds of information.

114.) When Mr. Nowell has a spare minute he goes on the internet with his droid and he is able to get more things done during the day and even get this broadcast together during the week. But Mr. Nowell also puts the droid (or cell phone) back into the “cloak of Athena” so no one can record where he is, what store or book stores he goes to, or where his friends are. 

115.)  A “cloak of Athena” is an anti-radiation device so it stops the prevalence of the radiation from your phone, so that it is not right next to your body. Put your phone in your lower pocket or put it into your boot so it doesn’t affect your internal organs. And always use an ear phone so you look after your body.

116.) It is important to hide your actions because a registry is being made of wherever a person goes. On Face Book only put critical friends in your Face Book space because each person will be tracked. So when you have to escape on to a “place of safety” there won’t be a record of everyone Mr. Nowell knows in the city because he has not put it into Face Book, a CIA operation to track everyone.

117.) When you go on to the internet, go to “startpage.com” because it does matter. We want to be alive to see Christ return in the air. And if we are going to all the controversial sites, which you have every right to do, they will mark you and put you into Fema Camps, and its right in front of our eyes.

118.) Look at all the Executive Orders. We don’t have any rights. Remember the NDA Act states that you can and will be picked up for being “belligerent,” and or having “excessive conduct.” That means anything they don’t approve of, such as, “excessive religion.”

119.) Who is going to do all this? The “man of sin.”  We are seeing the lying “man of sin” right in front of our face with Obama. And there is the “false prophet” too.

120.) Joseph Ratzinger, who became Pope Benedict XVI, should be replaced by the last pope, but Mr. Lawrence A. Nowell believes that Pope Benedict XVI will be involved in the Tribulation because remember Terry Ratsman in the Living Church of God gunned down seven members. 

121.) Everyone should have guns at home because we don’t let buffoons kick down the Temple of God. You don’t have to kill the thief, you can shoot him in the leg or arm or shoulder. You want to use a 45 caliber gun because other calibers only give a flesh shot.

122.) We want to see Christ arrive in the air so we defend ourselves; home invasions do occur.

123.) Get a big bar that goes inside your door, at least the intruder could be slowed down. And have bars on your windows. Do this because there are going to be terrible times. The Bible says it will be worse than it ever was before and ever shall be again. So defend yourself.

124.) If we are killed, we’ll have to come up in the resurrection after his feet have touched the Mount of Olives. You won’t get to see him off in space or you won’t get to see how the armies are going to fight against him before his feet touch the Mount of Olives. Get the sequence right.

125.) First we see Christ arriving way off in the galaxy as he is coming towards earth. Then we are going to see all the armies at Har Megiddo, and he’s going to smash all those armies. Then Christ is going to touch his feet to the Mount of Olives and the mountain will split in two, but the mountain doesn’t split in two immediately. We have to get there first.

126.)We will not be seeing Christ’s arrival if we are dead; we protect and take care of ourselves.

127.) All of the disciples had swords. Peter quickly cut off the ear of a servant of the high priest.

128.) In the first century people had to have a sword on them when they were walking because criminals would rob them. If they didn’t see any swords the traveler would be an “easy lick.”

129.) When people travel to the feast site, be careful of any gas stations where criminals might hang around looking for cars with out of state license plates. They look for travelers to rob.

139.) Watch people who call themselves your friends. There are “Christian” people who believe in the Bible, but don’t follow the Bible. They don’t follow the Sabbath on the seventh-day in the whole world. Instead they observe the sixth-day if they live west of the International Date Line. Yes, they say they follow Yeshua, but they are liars because the Sabbath is the seventh-day!

149.) Don’t believe the garbage that Yeshua will restore all things. The Bible says Elisha will restore all things. It’s dual.

150.) Bear Note: The secret of the “birth pangs” is there are currency wars and a MidEast war.

151.) There have been currency wars and this is happening in Brazil. Nations are switching to the gold standard and switching off of U. S. dollars.

152.) This summer there will be war with Iran, but right now there is a trade war against Iran.

153.) Last year Mr. Lawrence A. Nowell told us that President Mubarak of Egypt would be gone and he prophesied Gadhaffi of Libya would not go. Gadhaffi slowed the New World Order’s plans by about 3 months. They had to get the NATO troops, which are NWO troops, to kill him.

154.) The New World Order Army is already operating all through the Middle East.They’ve got the World Trade Organization, the World Health Organization. It is right in front of us, folks.

155.) Now the United States is in a trade war against China, and the United States is putting sanctions on Iran. And then Russia is going to get involved if the U.S. tries to cut off the oil from Iran, and then the U. S. is going to be getting into world war.

156.) Bear Note: In the sequence of events, we are in the “birth pangs” right now, we’re in the currency wars, we’re in with the start of the trade wars with China, and definitely with Iran.

157.) Mr. Lawrence A. Nowell says: “Give me the liberty of God’s word or give me death.” He is prepared to fight for God’s Word and go down in flames and die once and not die a thousand times piddling around with what denomination should I belong to or should I belong to a denomination that has the Sabbath Day on the sixth-day. Wonder if that’s hard to figure out.

158.) If you have any ability to buy any dimes that were minted before 1967 that have silver in them, try to buy them.

159.) Before “the tomato hits the fan,” remember Germany. One pound of meat use to cost 36 marks, but one year later it cost 36 billion marks! A loaf of bread will cost you a day’s wages, over a hundred dollars. It says so in the Bible.

160.) How are people going to pay their rent, how are they going to pay their electricity? They won’t have a place to live with heat because all their money will be spent on food. And because you won’t take the mark of the beast, you’ll be needing dimes that you should hoard up. You will need dimes to barter with someone for your food. TOCOG will tell you what to do.

161.) The whole world and its creation is being destroyed and we’re being destroyed also.

162.) All around West Virginia and all around Tennessee there are mines . Four hundred hills have been destroyed by mountain top removal that has ruined 25,000 miles of streams by slag and sludge that falls down from the hills.

163.) People are being destroyed physically and spiritually. A report brings us up to date for how bad it is: a person’s income today is basically 20% lower than it was ten years ago. Remember the “.com crash” where everybody lost their shirt. And the “housing bubble” is where people lost their homes, and now the great depression.

164.) How much money have households lost in the last ten year? Answer. Twenty-five trillion dollars. That’s $85,000 lost for each person in the United States. Each one is $85,000 poorer.

165.) Wages are declining, getting worse.College tuition is doubled. Health insurance is up 70%. And food prices are up 1/3rd. And it costs 50% more to fill your vehicle- tank with gas.

166.) Right now we are in “The Great Stagnation.” Ten years ago the Middle Class began to die, and these past ten years are the “Lost Decade.”

167.) We want Yeshua to come back and rule this earth so every one can have a decent life. If Yeshua was ruling, people would have some hope of prosperity, where the man would bring home enough for everyone to eat in his family and his wife could stay home and look after the kids. The family could have a new car every year. This could be done in the 1950s.

168.) In the 1950s a good car cost $2500. and a man could buy a house for $10,000. Gas was 25 cents a gallon, but today has prices have gone up to almost $5.00 a gallon in 2012.

169.) The American people have no hope. Our only hope is to turn to Yeshua.

170.) The United States is in a Great Depression, called “stagnation.” People don’t have jobs.

171.) All of America’s jobs have been outsourced overseas. Take “Apple Computer” company  as an example. How many employees does this one company have to make their computers in China? They have 200,000 workers working full time. And they are not going to send those jobs back to the U. S. A. to make computers because there is no infrastructure anymore.

172.) The Droids that the United States has are continually improved and a new one comes out every couple of months. To manufacture them, the U.S. picks up the phone and calls to China who sets up 20,000 workers in a factory to make 10,000 Droids in a week.

173.) The Chinese have all these people come in from the farms and live in dormitories. They put up 20,000 workers in a dormitory for 2 weeks or 2 months and working 16 hours a day,  they make all of the Droids for the U.S.A.  This would never happen in the United States.

174.) If you don’t have any money saved up, you are really in trouble. If you had $30,000 saved up, it wouldn’t last very long.

175.) The United States once was a great prosperous nation compared to other nations, but the last ten years have been so difficult for the average family. Now the U. S. is trillions of dollars in debt. We need Yeshua to come back.

176.) After the United States went off the gold standard in the 1970s, the government debt just skyrocketed. And the household debt is high. On a graph one can see how devastating it is. The red graph is the savings rate from the 1960s and the blue graph is the average personal debt.

177.)   Savings has gone down to zilch, and debt has gone up to maximum. We don’t have any savings and can’t pay any debt. We are doomed. There is no hope, folks.

178.) Prophecy says we won’t even be able to be sold as slaves. Coming out of the Fema Camps they will sell people off. There will be so many who will be broken and indigent, they won’t want us.

179.) In the old days slaves weren’t black. Slaves were white. People got themselves into debt and they had to sell themselves as slaves. That was the only way out.

180.) The whole world is falling apart. We have to realize that our only hope is Yeshua to return.

                                                                               *  *  *

181.) People are wanting to get baptized, so Mr. Lawrence A. Nowell is putting baptism ahead of everything else because this is so important.

182.) Drawn by his teachings, Jesus was followed in his earthly ministry by large multitudes.

183.) Matthew 7:28 says, “When Jesus had finished saying these things, crowds were astounded at his teaching, for he taught them as one having authority, and not as their scribes.”   

184.) There are a lot of people being drawn to The Obedient Church of God’s teachings. But it is just like in the first century, they are not coming in. We’re sorry for them. They seem to think they can have ecumenicalism, or they can belong to no denomination at all.

185.) In the first century people were astonished at Jesus’ teachings (because he spoke with authority.) Has anyone been astonished that TOCOG celebrates New Moon Day? the same way as Abraham, Isaac, Jacob did. [Transcriber’s Note: King Saul’s family celebrated New Moon Day.]

186.) Anyone astonished at our teachings of no Sky Father’s Day, no Mother’s Day, no Turkey-god Day? Is anyone astonished that they can’t move the Sabbath to the sixth-day in the world?

187.) What happened next for those who were taught? In Matthew 5 some of the people wanted to become Jesus’ disciples. Jesus actually got away from the multitude.

188.) Matthew 5:1-2 says, “When Jesus saw the crowds, he went up the mountain, and after he sat down, his disciples came to him. Then he began to speak and taught them.”

189.) TOCOG has gotten a lot of e-mails, more than we can handle, from people wanting to associate with The obedient Church of God. People can associate with TOCOG all they want, but they have to come into The Obedient Church of God to be one of his.

190.) There is no ecumenicalism allowed. There is only one faith. And people will be astonished when they finally realize that that faith is The Obedient Church of God!

191.) Matthew 5:1 told that after seeing the multitude, Jesus went up on the mountain and he spoke to his disciples, Verse 8 says, “Blessed are the pure in heart, for they will see God.”

192.) It is not enough just to obey. You’ve got to have your heart in it. Father will read your heart. Yeshua will not marry anyone who doesn’t love him.  You’ve got to get your heart into it, folks. Those are the ones who shall see God.

193. Here is a rediscovered truth: Bear Note: The pure in heart will see Yeshua arriving. Matthew 5:8

194.) In Verse 5, Matthew 5 says, “the meek shall inherit the earth,” but they will have to go through the Tribulation , or they’ll have to go through the second resurrection for them to inherit the earth.

195.) There is so much more to depth of scripture than we see at first sight.

196.) Matthew 5:3 says, “Blessed are the poor in spirit, for theirs is the kingdom of heaven. These will finally make it. They go through the Tribulation or they’ll go through the second resurrection and they’ll inherit the kingdom.

197.) Matthew 5:4 says, “Blessed are those who mourn, for they shall be comforted. Why? They’ve got to go through the Tribulation.

198.) Matthew 5:6 says, “Blessed are those who hunger and thirst in righteousness, for they will be filled.” These are all the offshoots of the Worldwide Churches of God that are hungering and thirsting for righteousness, and they are being filled.

199.) Verse 7 says, “Blessed are the merciful, for they shall obtain mercy.”

200.) Verse 8 says, “Blessed are the pure in heart, for they shall see God.”

201.) Verse 9 says, “Blessed are the peacemakers, for they will be called children of God.”

202.) Verse 11 says, “Blessed are those who are persecuted for righteousness sake, for theirs is the kingdom of heaven.” But these won’t see Yeshua arriving because they will be slaughtered, in the Tribulation and will be dead when Yeshua arrives.

203.) TOCOG wants people to know in today’s study, there were two types of disciples, two individuals regarding the matter of discipleship.

204.) Matthew 6:18 says, “Do not appear to men to be fasting, but your Father who is in a secret place, and your Father who sees you in secret will reward you openly.”

205.) Do not fast on the Sabbath Day, Living Church of God. You were fasting on the Sabbath Day because all your members were sick and ill. And why were all their members sick and ill? For three months Mr. Lawrence A. Nowell had been talking to them through one of their representatives about how they were breaking God’s law and other issues, and they refused to repent.

206.) Well, they fasted on the Sabbath, which is a feast day. They could have fasted on a week day except Friday, because that is the preparation day.

207.) Matthew 6:18 says, “Whenever you fast, do not look dismal…but when you fast, put oil on your head and wash your face, so that your fasting may be seen not of others but by your Father who is in secret; and your Father who sees in secret will reward you.”

208.) TOCOG wants to teach you that you have got to be a proper disciple. So go to Matthew 5:18 where it says, “For truly I tell you, until heaven and earth pass away, not one letter (jot), not one stroke of a letter (tittle), will pass away from the law until all is accomplished…Verse 20, “Unless your righteousness exceeds that of the scribes and Pharisees, you will never enter the kingdom of heaven.” You’ve got to have righteousness.

209.) There is the hasty scribe. In Matthew 8:19-20 “A scribe approached and said, ‘Teacher, I will follow you wherever you go. And Jesus said to him, ‘Foxes have holes, and birds of the air have nests; but the Son of Man has nowhere to lay his head.’ ”

210.) This means that to follow Yeshua there is a cost. Jesus as an itinerant preacher had no place to call home. There was many a night he spent with no roof. The crucial thing here is that we have to count the cost in that to follow Jesus means we have to leave all behind. The disciple said he would follow Jesus, but Jesus told him it would be a hard life he wouldn’t even have a place to live.

211.) Mr. Lawrence A. Nowell is now living on a hillside. He had to leave his home and office in Canada, he had to leave his “hobby farm,” he had to leave his place that he liked a lot in Eugene, Oregon, and come to Tennessee on a hill. Well, it’s part of counting the cost, folks.

212.) Mr. Lawrence A. Nowell has been led to the “holy hill.” he is on this hill because that is where God has placed his name. For anyone who comes to the “holy hill,” bring your hiking boots. You can wear your high heels to Dollywood to hear a religious band.

213.) Yeshua described to the disciple that he would have to be homeless because the way Yeshua answered him. Count the cost. You might be homeless with no roof over your head to be in God’s Church.

214.) Mr. Nowell has been living in a camper for the last six months. It’s fine. He is happy and he is a bear so he can survive, but it isn’t any picnic, especially when it gets cold at night and his feet are cold.

215.) To follow Yeshua you have to leave everything. That’s what Jesus said. When Jesus called the fishermen to be his disciples, they had to leave everything. Matthew 4:18-20 tells that as Jesus walked by the Sea of Galilee, he saw two brothers…casting a net into the sea for they were fishermen. And Jesus said to them, “Follow me, and I will make you fish for people. Immediately they left their nets (everything) and followed him.” The disciples left their jobs behind. Verse 22,

216.) And two more brothers “immediately left the boat and their father, and followed him.”

217.) We observe New Moon Day and like the Sabbath day, we are not to work on New Moon Day, and we don’t buy or sell of New Moon Day. The East Gate to the Temple was opened on New Moon Days, the same as they were opened on the Sabbaths.

218.) If you come into The Obedient Church of God, count the cost. It was necessary for the four fishermen to leave their jobs in order to follow Jesus.

219.) What about the rich young ruler in Matthew 19:21? Jesus told the rich young man who wished to enter into life, “If you wish to be perfect, go sell your possessions, and give the money to the poor…then come and follow me.” There is a cost.

220.) Mr. Lawrence A. Nowell has some property to sell and he is considering that. Now a person doesn’t need to be homeless, but he needs to count the cost before becoming a disciple, even to the point of selling everything that you have and giving to the poor.

 221.) If you have to leave your house behind to move to Tennessee, leave your family behind, all your friends behind and come to a whole new area, do it. You forsake everything else, you make Yeshua your ruler.

222.) It isn’t just saying you are going to obey God. Matthew 28:19-20 says, “Go…teach all nations…teaching them to observe all things whatsoever I have commanded you…”

223.) It will be a radical change in your life. It involves quitting jobs that interfere with God’s Sabbath, leaving friends who seek to lead you astray, changing your whole life style.

224.) Now we’ll show you repentance and it’s fundamentals.

225.) In Luke 24:46-47 Jesus says, “…It behoves Christ to suffer, and to rise from the dead the third day (to enter his glory): and that repentance, and remission of sins should be preached in his name among all nations…” Christ had to suffer and we likewise have to suffer.

226.) Before Yeshua embarked on his preaching work, he was a rich man. He traveled the world. Remember he was given gold from the wise men’s caravan. And Joseph of Arimathea was a wealthy tin merchant. He had ships and Yeshua was with is uncle during his missing years in the Bible.

227.) Yeshua gave his wealth away to become an itinerant preacher, and he didn’t even have a place to call home. The Bible says you’ve got to love Yeshua’s ways more than your family and to forsake everything and to count the cost.

228.) Acts 2:28 says, “You have made known to me the ways of life…” Today on this broadcast you are having the ways of life made known to you that you’ve got to stop moving the Sabbath to the sixth day in half the world.

229.) You need to get out of the church that moves the Sabbath to the sixth-day in half the world, or you are not one of his. You are a “disobedient brat.” You’ve got to count the cost. Stop obeying the “sinisters.”
You’ve get to uproot yourself from the Living Church of God, United Church of God, Triumph Prophetic Ministry, Church of God Eternal, and start obeying your Bible.

230.) Acts 2:38 says, “Peter said to them ‘Repent and be baptized every one of you in the name of Jesus Christ so that your sins may be forgiven, and you will receive the gift of the Holy Spirit.”

231.) Today’s sermon told about the challenge of following Yeshua. And that challenge is extended to every offshoot of the Worldwide Church of God and its members. Get out of those “sinister” churches and come into the safety and protection of TOCOG because the other churches clearly are disobeying, and they refuse to repent so you can’t be part of them or into the Tribulation you go.

232.) Our closing hymn is “Lord I will Praise Thee” followed by the closing prayer given by Mr. Lawrence A. Nowell.
