I thank you Lord. That. Your angels. And your lover so much. And I'm praying in the name of Jesus Lord that you would be back in any demonic force and that your spirit and heavenly forces will remain in this room keep us awake by you. Speak to our hearts the only way your spirit knows. Not by mine nor by power but by the saith the Lord of. And I claim that right now in Jesus' name amen you may be seated. The General. Roman general came with his armies and surrounded Jerusalem for some apparent reason c'est usin his Roman army just packed up and left the Jews in the city where like hollow your praise God this is a sign from Jehovah the gates of Jerusalem were open the Jews chased after the Romans and they were killing them meanwhile there were others in that very same city that saw that and instead they grabbed all their goods and they hightailed it out of there when the Jews returned after the slaughter of of the Romans a short time after that Titus returned with a large Roman army under a forced march and they got there quick and Titus laid siege to Jerusalem Jerusalem fell in eight hundred seventy and was burnt down and the Temple was burned down Josephus tells us the historian that approximately over one million people perished but the people that escaped the Jews said this is a sign from God but other people said this is a sign that God is not going to people of us we've got to get out of here the people got a state with a Christian at the fall of Jerusalem not one christian perished you know why because forty years earlier Jesus was riding on the mule and everybody was saying holes then and the highest blessed to be that cometh in the name of the Lord the palm branches on the floor and as Jesus crest at the top of the hill he looked at the temple one of the wonders of the world the sunset was kissing the marble and gold capped pillars. As the people looked at the temple of God with the Chicago in the glory and looked at the Messiah the coming King Boy they were singing praises but amidst the song of joy there was a note of discord somebody was out of tune they turn around to see Jesus weeping heavily sobbing I mean he was crying so bad that he was like moaning and making noise when Jesus was weeping it was more profound and more deep than what he did outside of Lazarus tomb You see he cried there but this property years left all have been silent and the angels were dumbfounded and Jesus said the words as he looked at the Temple in Jerusalem if thou hadst known even that out at least in this died today the things which belong until your piece but now it is here from your eye that very week Jesus would have his back torn open that very week you know he was entering into the Sheep Gate the Lamb of God That very week he would be denied a betray just outside those very walls he would be crucified but he wasn't crying from some Jews a song down the line forty years later the one million people that are perish Josephus said this that they were running out of trees to crucify people running out of space women were eating their own children killing each other horrible things and that's why Jesus was crying because the Prince of Peace came if you would only know the things that belong to your pains I've given you my sanctuary message I've given you the Passover Lamb symbol and I've came myself and you rejected and he worked for troops but not one christian perished why because Jesus had given them the signal and forty years later they were aware of the signs of the times and when they saw the sign they knew what to do and how to do it went to do and they were gone in ancient battlefields generals would give signals to their soldiers. They would use pennants or flags or trumpets or drums and if you were a soldier the general will be on high vantage ground so we can overlook the battle a the left flank need some support wave that blueprint and let the reinforcements back them up and so as a soldier on the field you will have to receive the signal in order to know how to move and I keep in mind as the battle rages on this signals change because the battle flows. We have a supreme tactician and general the captain of the host of the lord named Jesus Christ He is our commander and when he gives a signal and his soldiers receive it and execute this his soldiers become unstoppable matter of fact he has never lost a battle and so for the enemy his only hope of winning by all means necessary I have to interrupt the signal the message today what is the specific signal as the great controversy has waged on from heaven to earth throughout the years what is the specific signal at this point and stage in the battle that the general is giving to his people and is the enemy blocking you tonight's message isn't titled signals from the general Check this out as the end draws near and the work of giving the last warning to the world extends it becomes more important for those who accept present truths to have a clear understanding of the nature and influence of the testimony which God and His providence has linked with the work of the third angels message from its very rise she is saying that the testimonies the influence and the nature of the testimonies have been linked to the third angel's message. So the third angel's message is linked to what everyone the testimony and the testimonies are linked to what the third angels message please remember that now listen to this in Agent times God spoke to men by the mouth of prophets and apostles in V's days he speaks to them by the testimonies of his spirit there was never a time when God instructed his people more earnestly than he instructs them now concerning his will and the course that he would have them pursue she is saying now more than ever God is trying to communicate his will give his signals than ever before but notice this in times past he spoken through His prophets and apostles but now he speaks through the testimonies of his spirit how does God speak now the one the testimonies of his spirit remember that this is what she's saying Listen to this now this is Ellen White speaking of her own writings God is either teaching his church reproving their wrongs and strengthening their face or he is not this work is of God or it is not God does nothing in partnership with Satan my work bears the stamp of God or the stamp of the enemy there is no halfway work in the matter the testimonies are of the Spirit of God or of the devil as the Lord has manifested Himself through the Spirit of Prophecy past present and future have passed before me I have been shown faces that I have never seen and years afterward I knew them when I saw them I have been aroused from my sleep with a vivid sense of subjects previously presented to my mind and I have written that midnight letters that have gone across the continent and arriving at a crisis for to save great disaster to the Cause of God. This has been my work for many years a power has impelled me to reprove rebuke wrongs that I had not even thought of is this work from above or beneath that's not a question it's a statement and a way to say this my work is from God or trump the devil the testimonies of God Spirit is from above or beneath there is no halfway work in the matter actually says this is the testimonies speak not according to the Word of God reject them Christ and Satan can not be united So my question to you is what are the testimonies the testimonies are testimony so the church all and whites writings and testimony of the church Volume one through nine testimonies to ministers in reality they're all her writings Now think about this guys think about this is shoes right and God nowadays peeks through the testimonies I need everybody to get this please get this and back in the days God spoke to apostles and prophets but now he speaks through the testimonies and the testimonies are from God The question that I asked myself I stumbled upon this quote by two months ago the question I asked myself is how come I don't hear anything from the testimonies Check this out check this out she says about the testimonies there should be introduced into every Sabbath keeping family anybody keep the Sabbath the testimony should be introduced into every Sabbath keeping family the brother in should know their value and be urged to read them it was not the wisest plan to place these books at a low value and have only one set in the church they should be in the library of every family and be read again and again let them be kept where they can be read by many guys guys this is of super importance because if the testimonies are from the Holy Spirit like he same and God speaks to us through the testimonies nowadays. And she said they should be and every Sabbath keeping family today read again and again the question I must ask you is are you hearing anything from the testimonies If not why when I read this quote It disturbed me two months ago I just came across this and I asked myself I said Lord how come I don't hear nothing from the Testament I've never read the bonds of the Testament I've read bits and pieces but I never sat and read them and when I read this quote It disturbed me but then I kept reading she says this It is Satan's plan to weaken the face of God's people and the testimony. When he we can see the plan of the testimonies and the testimonies which are once believed and are doubted and are given a say in knows that the deceived ones will not stop at this he would doubles as efforts until he launched them into open rebellion which becomes incurable and to destruction you know she says after this after we reject the testimonies and white writings we were Check the doctrines of the church and then we reject Scriptures and then we go down to this downward path of perdition Now please listen to this Satan is constantly pressing in the spirit is to lead away from the truth the very last deception which deception everyone the very last deception of Satan will be to make of none effect the testimony of the Spirit of God Did you guys get that the very last the Septuagint is to make not effect of the testimonies. She says there will be a hatred kindled against the testimonies which is say tannic the workings of Satan will be to unsettle the face of the churches in them for this reason Satan cannot have so clear at track to bring in his deceptions and bind up souls in his delusions if the warnings and reproof and counsels of the Spirit of God are heeded if you get that the last to Sept and of same is to shut down the testimonies of N.Y. She says that God speaks through the testimonies nowadays Satan said I'm going to shut it down because if people are listening to the prophet of God they're going to receive the signal and known what to do this is of utmost importance of most importance now I want you guys to hang in there with the servant of God has said that the testimonies if anybody remembers is linked to what anybody remember the third angel's message the testimonies are linked to the third angel's message now listen to this she says that we are firmly fixed on present truth and have our hope like an anchor of the soul within the second veil was the second veil the sanctuary language the various winds our false doctrine and error cannot movements she says if we focus on present truth behind the veil we can't be shaken by error and false doctrine so as to why what is present truth so I cannot be shaken Well this is what she says there are many precious truths contained in the Word of God but it is present truth that the flock needs now I have seen the danger of the messengers running off from the important points of present truth to dwell upon subjects that are not how Q laid it to unite the flock sanctified the soul Satan here will take every possible advantage to enter the cause but subjects like the sanctuary in connection with the twenty three hundred days the commandments of God and the faith of Jesus. Are all perfectly calculated to explain the past Advent movement show what our present position is stablished the face of the doubting give certainty to a glorious future these I have frequently seen where the principal subjects on which the messengers should well one of my same Ellen White says this is present truth if you hold on to this false doctrine is not going to get you not only is for structure not going to get you she says more sanctuary twenty three hundred days the commandments of God and the faith of Jesus all those subjects that I mention are mentioned in one chapter in the book of the Bible and that's Revelation Chapter fourteen the first angel's message has to do with the sanctuary that our best judgment and the twenty three hundred days of the commandments of God and the faith of Jesus in Revelation fourteen to be simple here present truth is the first second and the third Angel's messages and when you hold on to that that is linked with the testimony you will not be blown by error or false doctrine when you hold on to that it is perfectly calculated to unite the flock when you hold on to that it will give you a certainty of the glorious future as stablish your faith and you will know your position and what to do on the surface that sounds like a lot of positive things so it makes sense to me why we don't hear the testimonies or present truth in churches Nowadays I want to read something to you guys there was me it's a little bit of reading today in a special sense Seventh Day Adventists have been set in the world as watchman and light bearers to them has been entrusted the last warning for at perishing world what kind of warning the last warning Listen to this guys on them is shining a wonderful light from the Word of God They have been given a work of the most solemn import the proclamation of the first second and third Angel's messages Listen to this there is no other work of so great importance they are to allow nothing else to absorb their attention. The first second or third Angel's messages there is no other work she says of so great importance they are to allowed nothing else to absorb their attention that's taken from the testimonies I wonder why we didn't hear she also says that the greatest wealth of truth ever intrusted to more has been given to once the most solemn and fearful warnings has been given to one's family you know what that means Hall doesn't have the truth that we Apostle Paul in light of Jeremiah has a been given what we have been given no one had a solemn message the world's going to get destroyed but our message is more solemn than that of no words because this is the last message and after this it's done New Jerusalem is coming we're going to finish the work nothing else to absorb our attention my question to you is is there something else absorbing our attention if this is from the Spirit of God and God speaks to us by the testimonies of his spirit today is there something else this is the signal from the general being blunt I went to a church recently last year I think it was last year and I preached a message and it was about the three entrails messages and I was at the door and I was creating people shaking hands you know and one brother came up to me and said Bro I don't know how you got in here I said excuse me he said I don't know how you got in here bro he said The message was powerful and all but we don't preach three angels messages in here I said oh really member after member were approaching me they were saying to me Oh it's been like ten fifteen years since I've heard of the angels must it's been so long I forgot what it was and I was pretty surprised because I've been preaching for four years and share my story on Sabbath. And the environment that I grew up in was I've always heard the three angels message so this was kind of shocking to me and then I stumbled across upon this quote just a couple months ago and I've been studying and now things begin to make sense she says that the three angles messages are perfectly calculated to unite the flock now how many of you think we need some unification in our church the three of those messages are perfectly calculated I wonder who's the mathematician that calculated that to unite the flock give us of faith for the doubters here for certainty for a glorious future no errors false doctrine can shakers and I'm wondering why I want to be something guys this is really where it gets crazy Lord we need your help there was me there will be here it is now assured some of this quote last night and I will thank you she just told me to explain what the three angels messages are and in brief I will when you read Revelation Chapter fourteen Revelation Chapter fourteen Revelation thirteen is Satan's plan mark of the beast Revelation fourteen is God's plan the three angels message. These things happen right before Jesus comes when you read Revelation fourteen at the end of the chapter Jesus comes right before Jesus comes three Angels' messages are preached though the last messages of salvation come into the are the first angel's message briefly because you want a relationship with God and I saw another angel fly in the midst of have been having the everlasting Gospel to preach to everyone that was on the earth and he says three commands fear God give glory to Him and worship him because that hour of his judgment has come because Jesus is in the most holy place of the sanctuary he's beyond the veil he's in the last phase of his ministry time is wrapping up he soon to come the second angel tells us Babylon is fallen is fallen because she has made all nations drink of the wrath of the wind of her fornication who is Babylon Why is it fallen and fall and I'm going to leave that to you Babylon is the Dragon Beast in the false prophet I'm going to leave that to you the third angel's message warns us about the mark of the beast and that if any man will receive the mark he will basically receive the play the most solemn and fearful warnings now the third angel's message it sounds rough but you know what she says about the third into this message the third angel's message is all about Christ our right how do you get Christ's righteousness out of that because you're going to need Christ's righteousness to get out of the trials that she will right now and you're going to need it to get out of the trial back there this whole three angels messages holds you into a tight relationship with God The Book of Daniel says the people that know their God do exploit take action have the spirit of the martyrs these messages are calling people out of deception come out of Babylon and fear God given coolie worship the true God It is a call to the truth in short. There are too many treasures in this but I want you to hear the same invents a number of schemes that he may occupy your minds that you may not to all upon the very work with which you ought to be best acquainted now what work should we ought to be best acquainted with the three angels messages nothing else should absorb our attention the arch deceiver hates the great truths that bring to view an atoning sacrifice an all powerful mediator he knows that with him everything depends on diverting minds from Jesus and His truth. Is doing up there interceding on our behalf pleading his blood on our behalf so that our names will remain on the book of life. Listen to this all needed knowledge for themselves of the position and work of their great high priest otherwise it will be impossible for them to exercise faith essential at this time or occupy the position which God designs them to feel that you get that if we don't know this present truth message she says it is going to be impossible for us to exercise the faith that we need in this time or occupy the position that God wants us to feel does not sound important to you we need the faith we're not going to have the faith we need unless we focus on this message we're not going to be united unless we focus on this message we're going to be blown by era unless we focus on this message time is leaving me but I'm going to share this with you and I wrote on this quote the title of this quote I just put heat because in St And I want you to listen to this she is basically eavesdropping on the devil quoting the devil she says that the devil and his angels are holding concert testimonies to ministers and this is what she says says the great deceiver she's quoting the Bible here we must watch those who are calling attention of the people to the Sabbath of Jehovah they will lead many to see the claims of the law of God and the same light which reveals the true Sabbath reveals also the ministration of Christ in the heavenly sanctuary and shows that the last work for man salvation is now going forward this is what the devil says hold the minds of the people in darkness until that work is ended and we will secure the world and the church also now this is amazing because she is quoting the devil. And I'm just the so much more I'm going to finish this with a double service continuing I will influence popular ministers to turn the attention of their hearers from the commandments of God the people accept the minister's explanation of scripture and do not investigate for themselves therefore by working through the ministers I can control the people according to my Will She's calling the devil the devil said I'm going to use popular ministers and I know people don't read their Bibles so I'm going to control the people through the ministers according to my will and I'm going to make sure the ministers block the signal are you listening to me today now listen to this man is too much so I'm just going to end right here Satan says until the decisive blow shall be struck our efforts against commandment keepers must be untiring we must be present at all their gatherings so is he present here he says in large meetings especially our cause will suffer much we must exercise great vigilance and employ all our seductive arched her friends souls from hearing the truth and becoming impressed by it he says how I have upon the ground as my agents men holding false doctrines meaning good with just enough truth to deceive souls I will also have unbelieving ones present who will express doubts in regard to the Lord's message of warning to his church you know and she said when the three of those messages and present truths are going forth the devil says I'm going to have people on the ground to express doubt in the Lord's messages so I can sway the minds of the people he said if we can divert their attention from these warnings they will remain ignorant of our power and cunning and we will secure them in our ranks at last he says we must cause distraction and division we must destroy their anxiety for their own souls lead them to criticize judge and accuse and condemn one another and to cherish self and Miti Can I ask you a question he says I'm going to get the church to everybody to start pointing fingers at each other and lose anxiety for your own song you know what happens when the high priest is in the most holy place everybody's outside in ancient times we bring I mean praying and fastening and St Lord I'm weak confessing the sins repentance basically all the fingers are not here they're here. It's a time of introspection searching go on but the devil says let's cause everybody to point judge and condemn and cause distraction and division is the distraction and division in our church today is the signals being blocked G.C. session hint hint if we were to focus on the mission it would perfectly unite song seventy three and I'm wrapping up soon I want to look at this some seventy three terms with me there tell me there are some seventy three songs seventy three you got to get this song seventy three almost zero guns almost seventy three this is what the Bible serves Now this is a song with a sad a sad was a wise man back in David's time right and I'm going to skim through these verses verse three at the end when I saw the prosperity of the wicked verse five they're not in trouble as other men verse six therefore pride compassed them about a chain verse seven at the end they have more than heart could wish verse twelve behold these are the ungodly who prosper in the world a service a man the wicked prosper how come pride surrounds them like a shame the good die young and all the wicked people get all the money and living the good life isn't fair verse thirteen he says I have cleanse my heart in vain and washed my hands in innocency what's the point of me living good why am I going to church why am I trying to do what's right and verse fourteen he says all day long I have been plagued and chastened every morning if I say I will speak thus behold I should offend against the generation of the children he said Man this has been painful for me plaguing me all day if I should speak my heart I'm going to offend people because I'm a leader and I'm going to cause people to go astray and he says this when I thought no this it was too painful for me verse sixteen so a service having a situation in the world nothing makes sense. Women and children are being abuse people are addicted people that's trying to do right can't make it and those that do wrong are making it he says Man this is a plague and it's painful nothing makes sense and then verse seventeen says until I went into the sanction. Of God then I understood why there if you read the rest of the song you will see that he has one hundred eighty degree turn and then he says I was foolish I was ignorant Lord I'm always with you you're going to guide me your counsel will receive me the glory he said it is good for me to draw near to God I have put my trust in the Lord that I may declare all by works this guy was thinking and feeling a certain way nothing makes sense in the world then he went into the sanctuary Wow received understanding and walked out of there saying how will your prey's come now if the sanctuary had that power on a sat back then what do you think the sanctuary message will do for you if you focus on the Right now the same sanctuary that to give you understanding the same sanctuary that a Change your thoughts and your feelings is the same message that the devil is trying to take you with same exact mess this is the last quote that I'm going to share with you last. Time around when the thirteenth was message the present truth the special message given to our world even the third angel's message comprehends a vast field containing heavenly treasures no one can be excusable who says I will no longer have anything to do with these special messages I will just preach Christ no one can preach Christ and present the truth as it is and Jesus unless he presents the troops that are to come before the people at the present time when such important developments are taking place and the White says this You cannot preach Christ in this day and age with out preaching the three angels message you can you can you know. I want to draw your attention you guys to something else this world's history we're not going to be here forever things are getting worse in this plan and Jesus says that they're going to get worse before he comes I don't think is the significance or coincidence I should say it is significant that over one hundred years ago this prophet of the Lord wrote that the Protestants of this country are going to reach across the go and shake hands with spiritualism and Roman Catholicism now back in her day that anti-Catholic feel absurd but now we have the Protestants of this nation doing exactly that I don't think it's a coincidence that the pope is coming here September twenty third and no pope has ever been invited to the United States Congress matter of fact when J.F.K. was president he was a Catholic girls' an uproar but now he's a Jesuit pope I don't think it's a coincidence and I have articles and I've read the newspapers and it says that he's going to address the United Nations one hundred ninety three governments quite possibly the largest assembly of heads of state of government in world history I don't think it's a coincidence that the United Nations leader all these leaders of the world are looking to the pope Rick Warren Joe all seen you name them all looking to the Pope I don't think that's a coincidence that the Bible says all the world wonder after the beast and after over a hundred years things are forming now I know Ben Carson is running for president now brother going to make it I don't think is coming in Florida all but I think it's pretty significant that a Seventh Day Adventist is running for the highest office in the world at this time and he's running for the highest office if anything if he makes it to one round even now it's putting our name on the map what we believe in what we teach I don't think it's a coincidence. That the pope has releases and cyclical and he said the solution for climate change is Sunday observance I don't think it's a coincidence that after gay marriage the Vatican says that this is a defeat for humanity and he's coming here September for family day and all family day his solution for families is Sunday I don't think it's a coincidence that in the book the great controversy. The White says that because of Morales the people were crying for Sunday long I don't think it's a coincidence that the great controversy says calamities earthquakes tsunamis Tempest and floods will increase and people will call for Sunday law and I don't think it's a coincidence that what the pope is doing is lining up perfectly with what has been written in the great controversy over one hundred years ago I'm not saying that Jesus is going to come this you but what I am saying is prophecy is being fulfilled and Babylon is getting stronger but where are the three angels God's people to preach the three angels message she said that this is Satan's last the session to silence the Testament what happened in Jeremiah is they they rejected the prophet and then it burned our we were checking our prophet right now if this is Satan last deception that means Jesus is coming soon folks and you know what else that means the law to rain is coming you know in the book of Acts when Peter said silver and gold have I none but such as I have given unto thee in the name of Jesus Christ of Nazareth pick up your bed and walk in the guy walk if you remember when Paul was walking down the street and healing people with his shadow he was probably business said here just take my handkerchief somebody took his handkerchief and got healed from his handkerchief. Philip was teleporting from place to place that was the book of Acts but when we get to heaven I'm going to ask God to send God you're not done with the Bible you're going to have to write the book of Acts part two because we're the first book of Acts that was the former rain but in now days the latter rain is going to come and we're going to do greater wonders than they do in X. part one I don't know about you family but I'm looking forward to that time and I'm looking forward to get soaked in way by the latter rain of God. This also means that the spirit of the martyrs is going to come and the spirit of the martyrs were not given to them until the moment came I remember the Apostle Paul said that before he died that he was fully convince that God was able to keep which he had committed on to him against that day and they took Paul to his execution side and you know that they didn't have too many witnesses there because they knew that when Paul died he was going to convert a lot of souls and so they said we're going to keep this private and they took Paul to his execution site you know she says the ones that took him to the execution site would soon spill their blood as martyrs for the faith because Paul was walking to the execution site with a smile on his face acting like he was going to the party he didn't open his mouth but he was preaching a sermon and he knelt there and before they cut off his head she says that Paul was thinking about Jesus coming in the clouds and how the prophets of old stood in the same place that he was now new when the blade descended lost his life but when Jesus comes again the very last thing that. Would be the very first thing that he see. My family. God is coming. Speaking to. Ask. You has about. Having a father I thank you. I thank you God that you have given us the truth you have given us. The prophecy. Is already. The book. And you have. Heard that this will just give us a hunger and a first for righteousness and that we will make. The study and. These things are true so I know Lord that it's been a heavy week. And how much that they can take and I pray that your spirit will just continue. As they go on this. I thank you. And I thank you for your spirit of. Jesus. This media was brought to you by. A website dedicated to. And much more if you would like to know more about how do you. Like to listen to.
