It is very
serious for anyone who has the duty to speak with Gods people. Sometimes
we do not realize how serious the things are that we are doing.
In The Great Controversy, 640, it says, "Not until
the day of final accounts will it be known how great is the responsibility
of men in holy office and how terrible are the results of their
So anyone who
has the responsibility to study the word with Gods people, has a
fearful responsibility. If I know something from Gods word that
involves your salvation and I do not tell you and you are lost,
that would be a terrible thing. Yet the devil is always trying to
keep Gods ministers from declaring all the word of God. The apostle
Paul said to the elders in Ephesis, "For I have not shunned
to declare to you the whole counsel of God." Acts 20:27.
There is counsel
on this in the Old Testament, too, in Ezekiel 33:6. It
says, "But if the watchman sees the sword coning and does not
blow the trumpet, and the people are not warned, and the sword comes
and takes any person from among them, he is taken away in his iniquity;
but his blood I will require at the watchmans hand."
That is serious.
So we must study all the word of God and I hnave to teti you that
there is a sword coming and you need to be ready. While this is
happening, we see that we have very little time left in this world.
The final events of world history are hastening rapidly upon us,
one of the things that I think anyone finds that visits or gives
Bible studies, is that the devil is attempting to press discouragement
upon Gods people.
So there are
sincere Christians all over the world that are just like people
that are pressed under a load that is so great that they feel like
despairing, like giving up. Now these loads that make people feel
like giving up can be many different things. Some people are pressed
under a load because of some type of family situation that has created
trouble or misunderstanding or strife. In fact, in commenting on
this, Ellen White says that the worst kind of persecution that a
person can endure is when you have persecution in your home.
There is strife
and somehow you cannot have that warm, loving relationship with
somebody in your home, but it is just the opposite. Jesus had that.
Jesus grew up in a home like that where He was misunderstood. He
knows how you feel in that situation.
have an even more discouraging situation than having trouble in
the home and these people exist all over the world. That is the
people that realize that they have trouble in their heart. Has the
Holy Spirit ever revealed to you that there is something in your
heart that has to come out? Something has to be changed? Perhaps
some feelings or thoughts that have to be changed?
The devil tries
to discourage people by saying, "Look at what you have done.
You have done it over and over and over and you will never overcome."
Mary Magdalene had that experience. The Lord delivered her from
demon possession. Then the devil got ahold of her again. So the
Lord delivered her again. Then the devil got ahold of her mind again
and that happened over and over and over. The Bible said and Ellen
White corroborates in The Desire of Ages that Jesus delivered
her from demon possession seven times.
are discouraged because of a health problem or a financial problem
or a problem with theirjob or some other kind of difficulty. If
you are trying to help people that are in these kinds of troubles,
what can you say? Look at a test in the Bible. Matthew 17 is the
Mount of Transfiguration and it says in Matthew 17:8, "When
they had lifted up their eyes, they saw no one but Jesus only."
That is all
they saw. Ellen White says, that is the secret of the power that
there was in the early church. They got their vision focused on
Jesus only. People want to get your attention focused on something
else. People get their attention focused on preachers or teachers
or physicians or lawyers or groups of people like churches and organizations.
I am not criticizing any of those people, but those people cannot
solve the deepest needs of your heart.
You need to
get your vision focused on Jesus only. He is the One that has the
answer to the deepest problems of your heart that no human being
can answer or solve. I would like to read you a statement from the
book, Acts of the Apostles, 532. It says, "Before
the believer is held out the wonderful possibility of being like
Christ, obedient to all the principles of the law. But of himself
man is utterly unable to reach this condition."
writings tell the truth. Are you able to become Christlike on your
own? What did it say? It says you are utterly unable. I am utterly
unable. None of us have any ability to do this. Well, how are we
going to do it? We cannot. Well, listen to the next sentence. "The
holiness that Gods Word declares he must have before he can be saved
is the result of (he working of divine grace as he bows in submission
to the discipline and restraining influences of the Spirit of truth."
grace can make you or me Christlike. And we must be like Christ
if we are going to go and live with Him. But we are not like Christ
and we have no ability to make ourselves like Christ unless divine
grace works within. And when does that happen? It happens when I
bow in submission. In other words, I surrender. Is that a hard word?
When I bow in submission, I totally surrender to the working of
the Holy Spirit inside.
It says, when
I bow in submission to the discipline. Is that a bad word? I bow
in submission to the discipline and restraining influences. What
is a restraining influence? You are going along and a restraining
influence is something that does not let you keep going the way
you are going. It is going to alter your course. Does your course
need to be altered? My course needs to be altered. Are you choosing
to bow in submission to the discipline and the restraining influence
of the Holy Spirit?
You see, only
the Holy Spirit can make the change in you and me that we have to
have to be saved. But we have to bow in submission, because the
Holy Spirit will not force us to be changed. "Mans obedience
can be made perfect only by the incense of Christs righteousness,
which fills with divine fragrance every act of obedience. The part
of the Christian is to persevere in overcoming every fault."
Ibid. I am to persevere in overcoming every fault, every fault the
Holy Spirit points out to me, and I am to overcome.
Well, you say,
Pastor John, you just read a little bit ago that I cannot. So how
am I supposed to do that? Now here is how you do it. Listen to the
next sentence. "Constantly (all the time) he is to pray to
the Saviour to heal the disorders of his sin sick soul." Ibid.
Do you have disorders in your soul? Has the Holy Spirit been working
in your life to the point that you are getting sick of sin? Do you
want to be done with it?
She says, constantly
we are to pray, constantly. He is to pray to the Saviour to heal
the disorders of his sin sick soul. "He has not the wisdom
or the strength to overcome." Ibid. There it is again. You
do not have the ability, you do not have either the wisdom or the
strength to overcome and I do noy either, and neither does any other
human being in the world. But we are to pray constantly to the Saviour
to heal the disorders of our sin sick souls.
Now notice Who
does have the strength so that we can overcome. "He has not
the wisdom or the strength to overcome; these belong to the Lord,
and He bestows them on those who in humiliation and contrition seek
Him for help." Ibid. Are you asking for help in humiliation
and contrition? Do you know where the power came from in the sixteenth
century reformation that shook the whole world? It had an effect
on the world from that time to this.
would have been such a thing as the United States of America as
we know it if it had not been for the Protestant Reformation. What
was it that did that? It was people that went to a secret place
and they got down on their knees and started pleading with the Lord.
Do you know what John Knox used to do? He would go to his private
place of prayer and he would pray for Scotland. He was a Scottish
pray for the people around them and their nation and they would
not let loose of divine power. They would say, Lord, something has
to happen! I want to tell you, something did happen. What could
happen to you, what could happen tome, what could happen to our
church if all of us went to a private place of prayer every day
and we prayed saying, Lord, I need help. Our church needs help.
We need to overcome. We need to be ready for the end. I am not going
to quit asking, Lord, I have to be changed.
What could happen
if we all did that every day? If we prayed for ourselves and if
we prayed for each other, what could happen? It says here, "He
has not the wisdom or strength to overcome. These belong to the
Lord and He bestows them on those who in humiliation and contrition
ask Him for help." Ibid. Those that in humiliation and contrition
ask Him forhelp; he bestows "them." What is the "them"?
It is the wisdom and the strength that He has to overcome that He
wants to give to you.
you and I must receive it if we are going to be saved. Is your life
focused on Jesus? Are you praying to Him, Lord, heal the disorders
of my sin sick soul. Please, give me the wisdom and the grace that
You have that I need to overcome. Help me to persevere in overcoming
every fault. You see, I have to overcome every fault if I am going
to go to heaven because those are the only people that are going
If I did not
overcome and God took me to heaven, I would ruin heaven. Heaven
has already been ruined that way once and God is not going to let
it happen again. So, I must receive wisdom and strength from Him
to overcome. He has it, I do not. But He has it and He will give
it to me through His Holy Spirit if in humiliation and contrition
I ask Him for help and if I persevere in overcoming every fault.
Are your eyes
focused on Jesus? I hope your eyes are focused on Jesus so you will
not be too scared with what I want to study with you now. It is
important to have your eyes focused on Jesus and not on people--other
people. Not on preachers or lawyers or physicians or statesmen or
military or whoever it is. I am not criticizing any of those groups
of people when I say that. I am just saying that you need to have
your eyes focused on Jesus and not on men or not even on the church.
instead of having their eyes focused on Jesus have their eyes focused
on the church and on members of the church. The disciples even had
this problem. In the book, Gospel Workers, Ellen White
advised the Seventh-day Adventist ministers of certain things that
they have an obligation to preach and teach to Gods people when
we assemble together for worship.
One of the things
that we are specifically instructed in the Spirit of Prophecy to
teach, to preach and to study with Gods people when we come together
in worship is Matthew 24. I want to take another look with you this
morning at Matthew 24 because it shows us that there is a sword
coming and you need to be ready for what is going to happen.
went out and departed from the temple, and His disciples came up
to show Him the buildings of the temple." Matthew 24:1. Where
was the attention of the disciples focused at this point? The buildings.
What was so important about this building? Was this a church headquarters
building? Yes, it was. It was a worldwide church headquarters building.
For what group of people? Israel, Gods professed people. Gods chosen
So, this was
a very important building. Nowjust to stimulate your thinking before
we get very far, I want to read something to you from the pen of
Ellen White and I hope you will listen carefully to this and I hope
it will make you think. She is talking about Matthew 24. "The
entire chapter in which are recorded Christs words regarding this,
is a warning to all who shall live during the last scenes of this
earths history." The Review and Herald, December 13,
The entire chapter,
she says, is a warning to ALL people that live in the last scenes
of this earths history. Let me ask you a question. Do you think
that we could be in the last scenes of this earth's history right
now? Well, then is all of this chapter for us?
Yes, it is. So then, what is the warning, what is the problem in
verse 1? What are they looking at? They are looking at their organized
church structure and they are calling Jesus attention to this!
this is the waming--not just to them. The entire chapter is a warning
to those that live in the last days of this earths history. That
is us. Let us get real specific. Where is the building now? It is
not in Jerusalem any more. Where is the building in the last days
for modern Israel? Over there in Maryland, the General Conference
building. It is the worldwide headquarters for the organized structure
of modern Israel just as much as Jerusalem was for ancient Israel.
came to Jesus and they said, Lookatthis! Were they ever shocked
when Jesus gave His reply. Remember that this is not just for them,
this is for the people in the last days. Notice verse 2: "And
Jesus said to them, 'Do you not see all these things? Assuredly,
I say to you, not one stone shall be left here upon another, that
shall not be thrown down." When He said that, they were in
a state of shock. There were a lot of other people around and they
did not know what to say right then, but they kept that in their
As soon as they
got away from there and were in a private place, they decided they
were going to find out what Jesus was talking about when He said,
Not one stone will be left upon another that will not be cast down.
By the way, that wall they pointed to was a marble wall. It was
white marble, Ellen White says that the masonry was so good that
it looked like one solid rock that had been taken out of the quarry
just like that and set up there. It was that good.
have daid that the marble fit together so tight that you could not
stick a knife blade between. I do not know if this is true, but
that is what some have said. It was one of the wonders of the ancient
world. Part of that wall that was there had withstood the attacks
of Nebuchadnezzars army. From the disciples point of view there
was no human way that that wall could be knocked down. They figured
that the only way that could ever come down is if the Lord destroyed
further that that must happen when Jesus will come again. Jesus
had told them that He was coming again. Now before we get further
into this subject, I want to bring you right up to date. At this
very time when Jesus was saying this to His disciples, that there
was coming a time when not one stone would be left upon another,
had God foreseen that this would happen? Of course, hundreds of
years before, Daniel had predicted it.
Since God knew
it was going to happen, had God prepared for it? How had God prepared
for it? Were all the people in the world going to be destroyed?
Was not somebody going to be saved? Oh, yes, there were some people
that were going to be saved. God had not been taken by surprise.
He was ready. He had begun a revival and reformation movement within
Israel years before through the work of John the Baptist. One of
the greatest revivals and reformation that ever occurred in the
whole history of Gods people happened through John the Baptist.
Then after John
the Baptist came, then Jesus came and it was His wish to save everyone
in Israel. You can notice right here in Matthew 23:37 in the last
part, He said, " . . . How often
I wanted to gather your children together, as a hen gathers her
chicks under her wings, but you were not willing." He wanted
to save evryone in Israel and He wants to save everyone in modern
But the problem
is, when the revival came, when the reformation came, when John
the Baptist preached, he was not accepted. When Jesus came, He was
not accepted. When Jesus sent the disciples out, they were not accepted.
And Jesus foresaw that when He sent the apostles out after His crucifixion
and resurrection, that they would not be accepted either. He foretold
here in Matthew 24--even though He was gong to give them one more
opportunity to repent--that they would not accept it.
He said, There
is not going to be left here one stone upon another that will not
be thrown down. This entire church organization and structure is
going to be destroyed. A sword is coming. Why is there a home church
movement today all over the world? Now there are actually too many
reasons to list in a few minutes, but one of the reasons is that
Matthew 24 is not just for then, it is for now. And Matthew 24:1,
2 are gong to be fulfilled again. Not one stone upon another is
going to be left that will not be thrown down.
It is talking
about the organized church structure in Israel. God has not been
taken by surprise. In preparation for that even as back there, God
started a revival and a reformation movement so that anybody that
would listen could be saved. But let me tell you, if they did listen
they were going to be lost and it is the same today. God has sent
testimonies of His Spirit, inspired by the Holy Spirit to guide
His people back to Bible gospel truth. And these things are not
optional. I cannot just take it or leave it and go on my way.
When God sends
me a message, if I neglect it, I have the same as rejected it. And
do not think that I canjust neglect what God tells me with impunity
and nothing will happen. So, through the work of John the Baptist,
through the work of Jesus a revival and reformation movement was
begun in Israel, but unfortunately very few people accepted the
truth that was brought in the revival and reformation movement.
Jesus said, is that not one stone shall be left upon another. Oh,
friend, what happened before is going to happen again. Remember,
the entire chapter of Matthew 24 is not just for back then, it is
for the last days. Let us read where Jesus was talking about this
very same thing in the gospel of Luke. This actually took place
a short time before where we just read in Matthew 24 but He is talking
about the same subject, the fact that not one stone is going to
be left upon another.
it says in Luke 19:41. "Now as He drew near, He saw the city
and wept over it,"Have you done any weeping over Gods people?
Jesus has done a lot of weeping over His people. What we are reading
is not what Jesus was doing in a vindictive way, not something that
He enjoyed having to tell them. But Jesus told the truth, even though
He was weeping when He told the truth, He did tell the truth.
When the time
of trouble comes, do you know what Ellen White says about Gods ministers
that are true and faithful? They will have shed their last bitter
tears for a rebellious church. He wept over it, but He still told
the truth. Look at verses 42-44: "saying, 'Ifyouhadknown, even
you, especially in this your day, the things that make for your
peace! But now they are hidden from your eyes. For the days will
come upon you when your enemies will build an embankment around
you, surround you and close you in on every side, and level you,
and your children within you, to the ground; and they will not leave
in you one stone upon another, because you did not know the time
of your visitation."
What did they
not know? God sent to them the Best. He sent His own Son. He sent
the disciples. Later He sent the apostles, but they did not recognize
the work of God. The Bible says that he that accepts a righteous
man in the name of a righteous man will receive a righteous mans
reward. Jesus said to His disciples, He that receives whoever I
send, receives Me.
Well, what if
they reject whomever He sends. Then what? And so Jesus said, You
did not know the time of your visitation. They were visited by One
who was greater than a prophet. Jesus said that of John the Baptist,
He is greater than a prophet. Of those born of women, there is none
greater than John the Baptist. Then they were visited by Gods own
Son and they rejected His message.
Now think this
through. If you reject Gods own Son, what more is there that God
can do for you? Well, let us bring that up to today. Our dispensation
is to be the dispensation of the Holy Spirit and we have been given
the testimonies of Gods Spirit. If you reject the testimonies of
Gods Spirit, listen, what more can God do for you? Nothing. You
can have all the organization, all the theology--the Pharisees knew
a lot of right theology. So much so that Jesus said one time, Do
whatever they tell you to do, just do not do what they are doing.
When they read
to you from the Bible, do it. Oh, somebody says, Pastor John, you
are getting too strong. You are going off on a tangent. Let me read
to you what Ellen White said about this passage of Scripture and
see if you think from this statement that we are going off on a
tangent. "When the Saviour saw in the Jewish people a nation
divorced from God (shejust quoted from Luke 19, the verses we just
read), He saw also a professed Christian church . . . "The
Review and Herald, October 8, 1901.
Who is the professed
Christian Church that He saw? Remember there was ancient Israel
and they had a worldwide structure and there is modem Israel and
they have a worldwide structure. Get the point. People cannot believe
that this is so. This is what it says, I am going to read the whole
sentence: "When the Saviour saw in the Jewish nation a people
divorced from God, He saw also a professed Christian Church united
to the world and the Papacy." Ibid.
What did He
see? He was weeping. What was He weeping for? He was not just weeping
for them. He was weeping for us because His prophetic eye could
look down through the ages to the end of time and He saw what would
happen. He saw not just them but He saw in the last days a professed
Christian church, people that claimed to be Gods own people, the
people that claimed to be modem Israel, the people that said, We
are the chosen people of God.
He saw them
united to the world and the Papacy. "As He stood upon Olivet,
weeping over Jerusalem until the sun sank behind the western hills,
so He is weeping over and pleading with sinners in these last moments
of time. Soon He will say to the angels who are holding the four
winds, 'Let the plagues loose; let darkness, destruction, and death
come upon the transgressors of My law. Will He be obliged to say
to those who have had great light and knowledge, as He said to the
Jews, 'If thou hadst known, even thou at least in this thy day,
the things that belong unto thy peace! but now they are hid from
thine eyes." Ibid.
people cannot believe that what is happening is happening, but it
is. In 1995 in Denver, Colorado, the Seventh-day Adventist organization
united with the Papacy in their health care system. It is under
one administration now with a Roman Catholic Chief Executive Officer
(CEO). Is that being united to the Papacy? Yes, it is. This year
when my wife and I visited in Berlin, Germany, they told us the
story of how the organization there had joined up with the ecumenical
Later this year
when we visited the Netherlands, they told us the story of how the
organization there had joined up with the ecumenical movement. That
is what split the church up in Zaire, now the Congo. Now, please
do not misunderstand me. We have not and we are not saying that
the Seventh-day Adventist church is Babylon, but we have said and
we are saying that they are on the track of Romanism and they are
going in that direction.
We are not saying
they are totally joined up yet, but they are going in that direction.
And when they commented on what happened in Denver in The Review
and Herald, there was not one single rebuke or reproof of what
had been done. Now I want to ask you, if you are joined up with
the Papacy in your health system, how can you preach the three angels
messages? You cannot do it!
Over in Germany
faithful Adventists hand out literature containing the three angels
messages which is a waming against Babylon in verse 8, a warning
against the beast, the mark of the beast, the image to the beast
and the number of his name (verses 9-1 1). They are doing that all
over Europe not just in Germany. They have handed out millions and
millions of tracts over there. God is trying to give the people
in this world one last chance.
But the churches
in the ecumenical movement called the headquarters of the Adventist
church and they say, Why are you handing out this literature with
you phone number on it since you are part of us? The Adventist Leadership
said, O.K. and they went to the Adventists that were handing out
the literature and they took them to court and sued them to force
them to leave their telephone number out of the literature! Is that
getting the three angels messages out or is that trying to stop
it? Which is it?
As we draw near
the end, all Adventists know about the signs of the times. Jesus
told His disciples; you will find this in the book The Desire
ofAges pages 628 & 629. "As therabbis see these signs
they will declare to them to be God judgements upon the nations
for holding in bondage His chosen people. They will declare that
these signs are the token of the advent of the Messiah. Be not deceived;
they are the beginning of His judgments. The people have looked
to themselves. They have not repented and been converted that I
should heal them. The signs that they represent as tokens of their
release from bondage are signs of their destruction."
See, as we look
at the signs of the times and people all over are saying, These
are the signs of the coming of Christ. The question is, Is it a
sign of your deliverance or a sign of your coming destruction? Which
is it? The church back in that day instead of getting deliverance
got destroyed. In Manuscript Releases Volume 13,379 there
is a statement about the last years in the history of Gods people.
Do you believe
we are living in the last years of the history of Gods people? When
I first read this statement, I had to read more than once. It just
seemed unbelievable, but this is what it says. "In His word
the Lord declared what He would do for Israel if they would obey
His voice. . ." That was ancient Israel. We are modem Israel.
If you claim to be a Seventh-day Adventist, you claim to be part
of modem Israel.
leaders of the people yielded to the temptations of Satan, and God
could not give them the blessings He designed them to have, because
they did not obey His voice but listened to the voice and policy
of Lucifer." Ibid. God could not do for His people what He
wanted to do because they did not obey the testimonies of His Spirit.
They did not obey the Spirit of Prophecy. And instead of that, she
says, they listened to the voice and policy of Lucifer! Lucifer
is the devil!
the devil does not come like the devil. The Bible says he comes
like an angel of light, so you think you are following the Lord.
How can you tell the difference? Are you obedient to what it says
in this book (the Bible)? Are you obedient to the Spirit of Prophecy?
Is your life in harmony? Or have you made excuses?
But then, listen
to this sentence. This is what they did. "This experience will
be repeated in the last years of the history of the people of God
who have been established by His grace and power." Ibid. This
experience is to be repeated and it is being repeated now. I was
very interested when I read that statement. Just this morning I
was reading it again. This statement was written in 1904 and at
the end of the statement, Ellen White wrote this: "To be used
I want to tell
you that now is the time we need it. We need to know what is gong
on and what is happening is that people that God has used in a marvelous
way in His organized work are listening to the voice of policy of
Lucifer because they are uniting with Babylon. They are joining
up with the world and with Babylon instead ofhelping Gods people
to give the three angels messages to the whole world.
to the Romans. "If it be possible as much as lieth in you,
live peaceably with all men." But there is a point beyond which
it is impossible to maintain unity and harmony without the sacrifice
of principle. Separation then becomes an absolute duty. That is
why there is a home church movement today. Now that is not the only
reason but that is one big reason, because it became impossible
to maintain harmony and unity without sacrificing principle.
If you have
to sacrifice principle to maintain harmony and unity, then you had
better not do it because Jesus did not. Jesus lost the whole Jewish
nation because He would not sacrifice principle in order to have
unity and harmony within, and they would not listen to Him. Oh,
Pastor John, someone says, We have to have unity and harmony and
there is going to be some people that have unity and harmony but
they are not going to get it by disobeying the Lord.
In this statement
that she wrote in 1904 she talks about unity and harmony and she
said that history is being repeated. "The perils that Gods
people encountered in past ages, they will encounter again, intensified
. . . Unless man is given the converting grace of heaven, he will
have no disposition to oppose Satans counsels, and will become the
enemys willing dupe. Itis God alone who puts enmity to sin in the
human heart. The Lord gives man a new mind. He causes the conflict
that will not submit to Satans deceptive reasoning." Ibid,
Why is there
conflict? Because when people will not submit to Satans deceptive
reasoning, then there is a clash and strife. "It is God who
makes the conflict where heretofore there has been unity of action."
Who makes the conflict? God makes the conflict. Why? Because people
must be removed from Satans deceptive reasoning and thy must come
into harmony with the Bible, the Spirit of Prophecy and with the
counsels inspired by the Holy Spirit.
Well, the disciples
did not understand all that. They were shocked by what they did
understand but they did not understand it all. There was a lot they
did not understand. As I was thinking about this last night, I decided
to read again the first chapter of The Great Controversy. Do
you know what that first chapter is about? It is about the destruction
of Jerusalem and on page 29 she talks about when the armies were
surrounding the city and how the people inside were being taught
that the Roman armies cannot destroy this city because this is Gods
That is what
people today think. We are Gods people and we are going through
to the end. If we do not repent and overcome, we are not. We can
call ourselves anything. We can have any organizational structure.
Jesus said, Not one stone upon another is going to be left. That
is why there is a home church movement. God is not taken by surprise.
God knew what was going to happen. He had it written down. Ellen
White wrote in 1904, Use it when you need it.
And we need
it today. But now in closing, the good news. When Jerusalem was
destroyed over one million Jews lost their lives. In fact, I was
reading last night, she said that out by Calvary they took the people
and crucified Jews until their were crosses so thick around Calvary
that you could hardly walk between them. It was one of the most
terrible things that happened in that century.
But it says
that not one Christian lost his life, not one that would listen.
Those back to the time of John the Baptist that listened. Then when
Jesus came, they recognized that God was speaking to them and they
listened. When the disciples went out preaching, they listened and
when the apostles went out preaching, they listened. And not one
lost his life!
We do not have
time to read it right now, but I could read you statement after
statement after statement in the Spirit of Prophecy that the great
majority of the people that profess to be Adventists are going to
lose their lives at the end. In past times we have said, How could
that ever be? Well, we are finding out now.
But if you will
listen to the message that God is sending through His word, through
the testimonies of His Spirit, the same thing is going to happen
to a group of people today that happened to a group of people back
then. When over a million of Gods professed people lost their lives,
there was a group of people that had listened to what Jesus said
and not one of them perished. That is going to happen again.
I do not want it to happen to you. I do not want to have to find
out at any time in the future that there is somebody in this church
that losthis soul. Iwant every single person to be saved without
the loss of one. I have said that to the Winfield Church. I said,
Would it not be nice if when we get to the other side, there could
be some churches where everybody in the whole church was saved?
Do you not think that would be the thing we would strive for so
that we can all be saved?
Are you willing
to listen to inspired counsels? Are you willing to listen to what
the Lord said so you can be saved? So that when there is not one
stone left upon another you will not be in that destruction? If
that is what you want, I invite you to kneel down and pray with
me. Pray that the Lord will help us to listen and have that experience
