Father we're thankful for the privilege and opportunity for studying the words we're praying the Lord that you'll give us wisdom give us understanding keep us awake keep us alert give my mind clarity I pray that you speak to me and speak through me to your people and as a result we pray O. God in a special way that our hearts may be challenged and changed we commit and we submit and we pray Lord in especially that you send holy angels to move the dark force that might try to interfere and interrupt that which you desire for us to learn tonight we we pray and especially the Lord that the Holy Spirit may Luminate the sanctuary and that our hearts may be challenge him blessed are we asking the precious name of Jesus amen and I believe that objects in the mirror is much closer than they appear and in fact the White says ministers should present the shore of prophecy as the foundation of the faith of 7th Day Adventists and then it goes on to say the 24th chapter of Matthew is presented to me again and again as something that is to be brought to the attention of all knob inside of the book of Matthew $24.00 over 20 years and it's within the last year or 2 the last show me some specific things in a book of Matthew chapter 24 that help me to realize that even though I studied it and I've understood parts of it that never truly understood the book of Matthew chapter 24 and she said that it should be brought to the attention of all and she that law has shown me again and again that is something that should be studied we're going to study it tonight and then it says we are today living in the time when the prediction of the chapter is fulfilling that it says Let our ministers and teachers explain these prophecies to those whom they instruct. Let them leave out of their discourse is a matter of mind a consequence and present the truths that will decide the destiny of souls so we're going to study deeply the book of Matthew chapter $24.00 turn there with me Matthew chapter 24 let's pick up in verse one Matthew the 24th chapter. And were subject is entitled even at the door Matthew $24.00. And we're going to pick up in the verse one Bible says and Jesus went out. And apart from the temple and his disciples came to him to show Him the buildings of the temple and Jesus said unto them see not all these things verily I say unto you There shall not be left here one stone upon another that shall not be thrown down and as he sat up on the Mount of Olives the disciples came to Him privately saying Tell us when shall these things be and what shall be the sign of I coming and of the end of the world and Jesus answered and said unto them take heed that no man deceive you for many shall come in my name saying I am Christ and shall the seed many and he shall hear of wars and rumors of wars see that you may not trouble for all the things must come to pass but the end is not yet one nation shall rise against nation and kingdom against kingdom there shall be famines and pestilence and earthquakes and divers places and then in verse 8 the Bible says in all these all the Beginning of Sorrows Now answer the question when shall these things be what shall be the sign of that come and watch out when shall be the end of the world Christ began to out late to the disciples some some specific and explicit things that shall take place right before he comes he mentioned that those wars rumors of wars earthquakes pestilence is which is sicknesses. Wars and rumors of wars and many other things that Christ named the sepsis and then he said that these are the beginning of sorrows. Now many of us that study that word SARS and we've come to the conclusion that based on the Greek word that Greek word for sorrows is the word Odin and it means the pain of childbirth travail pain birth pangs so as you look into the book of Matthew chapter 24 it's not just the events that take place but it's how rapid and how successive they are in the order So in other words we know that they have always been earthquakes we know that they have always been pestilences which are disease we know that there's always been the wars and rumors of wars but the Bible is telling us as travail with a woman with a child once the contractions gets more rapid and more intense it is a sign that the baby is about to be born so crisis saying don't just look at the signs but look at how rapid how intense and how successful they are and once you see how rapid and how intense they get after the year after year after year then you see that this signs are more closely being fulfilled and then it goes on to say that. They shot the lady up to be afflicted and shall kill you and you shall be head of all nations money namesake and he talked about many be training each other and he talks about the iniquity of many shall wax cold now here's the thing even with this in mind the mind naturally was saying just like the past year if we had 3 category 5 hurricanes in 2017 or 2016 whatever it was I believe it was 2017 that means in 2018 we might have 4 Category 5 hurricanes and I say we get 4 Category 5 hurricanes in 2018 then we say well in 2019 we might get 5 Category 5 hurricanes and then since we got 5 Category 5 hurricanes in 21000 might say well in 2020 we might get 6. Category 5 hurricane do you guys get what I'm saying so what I'm saying is that our minds even with this understanding could be put off the coming of Christ in a mainstay in how we interpret in prophecy so what am I saying as you go through the book of Matthew chapter 24 you notice that is very strategic and systematic how Christ put together his message to the disciples in Matthew chapter 24 which is also a message to us that he preached or talked in the book of Matthew chapter 24 so in a 1st aspect of Matthew chapter 24 you notice that Christ starts off with things that happens year after year after year had they always been the wars absolutely had they always been earthquakes in divers places absolutely had the love of many always been waxing cold Absolutely we know that that's why the end of the movie and age was turned over because the love of the many and that time also waxed cold so as we see these events that's out late in the 1st aspect of Matthew chapter $24.00 he starts off with things that are broader things that happens all the time so a person to say well these things happen all the time so to me I just anticipate that it's going to be something more intense more rapid in a successive years and in our minds on the only we are putting off the coming of Christ so as we said in a book of Matthew chapter 24 I want to know that 1st and foremost Christ also with things that are broad and as you navigate through the chapter you notice that he gets more specific so it's also with things that occurs all the time earthquakes wars rumors of forced pestilence sicknesses false prophets and deceptions the love of many waxing cold the things have always happened the sin sin the inception of sin with and to do movies all the way down to our time but as you continue to go through Matthew chapter 24 knows what it says in verse 14 the Bible says no sound more specific gets. And this gospel of the kingdom shall be preached in all the world for witness on to all nations and then shall that and that come question is that something that happens all the time is not so you notice as you are going through the chapter is not as broad and as wide as it not as it was in the beginning you know as it gets more specific and more narrow as you go through those again a verse or 15 when he therefore shall see the abomination of desolation spoken of by then the prophets stand in the holy places or read it let him understand so again something that is more specific now they bomb a nation of desolation has happened 4 times well 3 times and there's one to come but it's not something like earthquakes it's not something like wars and rumors of wars it's not something like pestilence is not something like deceptions you notice now that as Christ goes through the book of Matthew chapter 24 he gets more specific it's not just brought things no more he's getting more narrow and that's what we see now when we see these things we know that Christ comes near because it's not as broad as the beginning of the chap and I'm a consensus far and I mention that there's 4 abominations of desolations we're not going to start of this for the sake of time of the 1st one was in a time of Daniel the abominations all the sins committed by the people of God and as a result of their sins got allowed pagan nations a come in and the stronger them and as a result the land is desolate that happened in a time of Daniel that happened to the Jews in $8070.00 and that also happened in the dark ages. And then as a result there's one more coming which is the end time the national Sunday law there'll be another bomb a nation which also lead to desolation Now let's continue to go down verse 16 the Bible says then let them which being today if lean to the mountains. Let him which is on the housetop not come down to take anything out of his house neither let him which is in a field return back to take his clothes 1st 1001 on to them that are with child into them which give suck in those days but pray that your flight be not in the winter neither on the Sabbath day verse 21 for then shall be great tribulation such as was not since the beginning of the world to this time no nor ever shall be verse $22.00 and except those days should be shortened there should no flesh be saved but for the elect see those days shall be shortened so as we look at these abomination of desolation. In a book of Matthew chapter 24 Christ had in mind specifically 8070 but prophetically He was also speaking of the Dark Ages which we look at what those dates are as well and I want to note that he says this is great tribulation such as was not since the beginning the world. To this day and he says no nor ever shall be let's focus in on the dark ages the abomination of desolation during the Dark Ages now Bible says Great Tribulation now we are all 7 events I'm assuming right so my question is this what year did the Dark Ages begin 530 praise the lord 538 and it ended in 1790 keep that in mind we're going to go back and study that a little bit further now member tonight I need you to think Amen we're going to study deeply so we need to think it started 538 ended 1798 now as the Bible predicts the dark ages is one of the most devastating demonic. Maters 50 to 100000000 was estimated lost their lives and that's not including those who're. Lost their homes and lost their wealth and lost their children a lost their family lost their health 50 to 100000000 to the Dark Ages lost their lives and we see that Satan turned his wrath against a church that's right before the Dark Ages which propelled the political and religious power to be given to the pope to Constantine and as a result that launched into the dark ages and for 1260 years the people of God were persecuted and prosecuted and many of us notice stories off the wall in season Huguenots and other densities who had to flee to the Alps mountains and were told that great numbers are drawn from they had to Taishi with their wives and children stripped naked and many were of them were inhumanely massacred and this is the history that follows Rome in the dark ages so these are. Pictures the picture of the wall then sees these are the Alps mountains in Italy in which they had to flee to preserve the Word of God and we think feel for them our brothers sisters work now for their faithfulness and their diligence we would not have the freedom and flexibility of studying the Word of God in a time of peace even though we'll know that is not will not always be so so they preserve the Word of God. Doing those dark ages they will actually build their codes their clothing was useful because they use their clothes and the means of hiding the manuscripts the Bible and they'll go to regular colleges and they applaud the Word of God and they will share with those in whom they came in contact with so we see that during a dark ages they preserve the Word of God and then as a result it was translated to why cliff and Luther and Knox and Newton and Wesley and then we know in our time William Miller and then to the Adventist Church. All right so many of them had to flee to the United States for refuge and mention that this dog was one of the darkest time in the history of this world and why because the by was taken away in the Bible says that word is a lamp to my feet and a light on to my pass away there is no light there is darkness and because a lot of the Word of God was taken away we were in the darkest time one of the office time with this world's history now how did it end we know from history that general birth year entered Rome in 79 years as prophecy predicted we're going to study this a little bit further Friday night Friday evening we're going to go through Revelation Chapter 13 and break it down very specifically what General birth the entered Roman 798 as process predicted and then what the Criseyde would have come after the Great Tribulation Let's go back to our Bibles and knows what the Bible says let's go back to verse 21 Matthew chapter 24 and knows what the Bible says in verse 21 Matthew 24 1st 21. 4 Then shall be great tribulation such as was not since the beginning of the world to this time no no I have a. Verse $22.00 and except those they should be shortened what there was a verse in there should no flesh be saved but for the Lex sake those days shall be shortened praise God I'm going to see why we need to rejoice because God fulfill his word now I want you noticed so we see that the Dark Ages and in what year in fact I mean just make sure we're together what year did the Dark Ages start I want to sound like a choir want you to start a phrase got you some beautiful What year did N. a man we sound like 7 Day Adventists Bible believing Christians praise the Lord even so we see that a start in $538.00 ended in $7900.00 now what the crisis would happen right after go down to verse $29.00 what it says in verse $29.00 the member verse $21.00 talks about the Great Tribulation Now watch what it says in verse 29. The Bible says in mediately after the tribulation of those days shall the sun be darkened and the moon shall not give her light and the star shall fall from heaven and the powers of the earth shall the powers of the heaven rather shall be shaken so we see the Bible says immediately after the tribulation a few things will happen or they. Look at it look at the Bible Verse 29 few things will happen after the tribulation of those days what happens son dark and what else who shall not give a light and what else star shell fall from heaven and the powers of their heavens shall be shaken I would NOT going to spend time on that when you study the Book of Revelation Chapter 6 in the book early writings you see that the powers that have been shaken is the coming of Christ so we decided the events leading up to the 2nd coming of Christ when crisis come in is too late so we're going to study these events leading up to the 2nd coming of Christ so 3 specific signs one son darkened to the moon give no light 3 stars fall from heaven now what do you notice again that Christ as He go through the book of Matthew chapter 24 he starts off brought on then he gets more narrow the Gospel shall receive entire world he gets more narrow abomination of desolation he gets more narrow a great tribulation such as never was and then it gets more narrow He says after the tribulation of those days 3 signs very specific sun darkens. Move no light stars fall from heaven so we can see that these are not broad. Prophecies it's not just like earthquakes not just like wars and rumors of wars not just like the Sept ins we see that Christ got very very specific now as he gave me 3 very definitive and specific signs and I want to notice what happens after the 3 signs the Bible says the powers of the heavens shall be saken and then shall appear the sign of the Son of Man in heaven and then shall all the tribes of the earth mourn and they shall see the Son of Man coming in the clouds of the heaven with power and great glory. Theme this week is what was the theme for the week that the King is coming so we're starting to sign that show very clearly the king is coming and I want to know is in the Bible that after the 3 signs very specific signs not earthquakes not wars not rumors of wars not deceptions very specific signs crisis that after the 3 signs the Son of man shall come with in clouds with power and great glory and will study the rest of the verses as we go through now let's go back and look at the dark ages are we still together that we need to think tonight Amen I notice the days ended in 79 he by the way this is Day lot more his book last a token he's commenting now on these texts in Matthew chapter 24 and what do you know he says the day's end and it's something 98 talking about these great tribulations and then he says persecution began to be checked about 773 as previously stated and the last act of public burning was in 739. The 1st of these signs there would naturally be expected between the years 1779 and 1798 Now let me break it down go back to verse 21 and 22 want to make it very plain the Bible says for then shall be great tribulation such as not such as was not in the beginning of the world to this time though no Evan Shelby and except those days should be shortened there should no flesh received but for the elect sake those days shall be shortened and then it goes on to say in verse $29.00 immediately after the tribulation of those days shall the sun be darkened the most shall not give a light and the stars shall fall from heaven and then as a result Christ will come is that clear to you so far now what does it mean by the days shall be shortened Let's go back what you did a dog ate a star what you did a dog a does N. Now look at the screen look very carefully what year that persecution and what year 1779 now let's let's do it together choir dog a to start a what year any what year what year did persecution end why did persecution and in 7079 because Christ promised that if he did not show in the days he said none of his people would be saved so for the elect sake he says those they shall be short and they got fulfill his promise yes or no are you with me my brother and sisters so God says even though the dog is ended in 1798 I'm going to fulfill my promise that I'm going to shorten those days and persecution in 1779 what you had a persecution in 1779 back to verse 29 Matthew 24 verse $29.00 The Bible says immediately after the tribulation of those days. Shall the sun be darkened and the moon shall not give a light and the star shall fall from heaven and the powers of the heaven shall be shaken so let's go back $538.00 we mentioned beginning of the dark ages $7079.00 persecution ended and then the Bible says immediately after the tribulation of those days shall the what sun be darkened the more shall not give our light and the stars shall fall from heaven does anyone know what happened in 780 the great dark day notice the time here was this 1st word mysterious dark day I wonder why it's mysterious That's fine no May 19 1718 watch what it says here it says in the morning the sun rose clear both overcast the clouds became black and on this a few minutes later it was as dark as it usually is at 9 o'clock on a summer evening fear anxiety and all gradually fill the minds of people woman stood at the door looking out upon the dark landscape a men return from the labor in the field the company left new to the blacksmith As for the tradesmen his counter schools were dismissed and trembling the children fled homeward what is coming queried every lip and heart Now what's amazing about this is that NASA has a complete record of solar in lunar eclipse stretching back to 1999 B.C. but a scan of the data shows no solar eclipse in sight that May 19th 780 I want to know why that day was dark Let's go back to our Bibles I want to make sure you see it knows what it says again in Matthew chapter $24.00 in verse $29.00 The Bible says immediately after the tribulation of those days shall the sun be darkened. The moon shall not give our light and the stars shall fall from heaven now let's go back to the screen so we mention dark a dishonest 538 persecution by the mercy of the grace of God ended in 177919 years early why because God fulfilled his promise but God gave another promise immediately after the tribulation so even though the dark ages ended in $79.00 the ace the tribulation and in a what year 1779 and God says immediately after the tribulation of those days the sun shall be darkened and the moon shall not give her light and what year did that happen $780.00 what does that mean God's will for those promised to the very exact measure my brother and sisters right after persecution ended the day it was dark and the sun did not give a light is everyone clear and is my brother and sisters is God's merciful is God gracious is got all knowing does God give us a clear sign post about the signs which leads up to is coming yes or no yes so we see that is literally immediately after the tribulations of those days and then we know 79 the it will happen dark ages and it is everyone clarinet Amen you don't sound clear Amen All right now there's anyone know what happened in 1833. National new graphic talk about 1833 media storm started citizen science startled they had no idea what was taking place just as they had no idea why the day was dark Why was the day dark because God says I'm going to fulfill my word and I'm given a specific sign. This is not a earthquake this is not a war rumors of wars though things that always occurred but God says now as it as you go through Matthew chapter 24 I'm going to get very very specific so that there's no confusion that somebody might say well I expect a worse earthquake next year or I expect more deception next year or expect more disease next year God said no I'm going to give you 3 specific size they darkened movie not give or light stars fall from heaven and then we see that in 833 Another thing that baffled scientists the media shower that took place November 131833 and we can see that the world were stirred up as a result of the falling stars I was 1833 all right does anyone else does anyone know what else was taking place during that time so that again my brother William Miller began to go public preaching the 2nd coming of Christ now he started 1831 but with it what was the response when he said crisis coming in a 1040844 was a response when he was preaching that message your times that are your fanatic your off but then as they go through the Bible and they look at the signs met each other 24 and you see that the very last sign that Christ gave before he burst the clouds is the stars falling from heaven and now this man is saying that here it is that Jesus is coming in 12 years and all of a sudden those men that used to laugh at him and mock him and scorn him as they looked at a Bible and he saw the events unfold in a little he heard or saw the stars falling from heaven they cost got stirred up and as a result we had 100100 people follow the people on ascension rock waiting on the 2nd coming of Christ why because they saw the prophetic events unfold in Matthew chapter 24 you with me my brother and sister they meant. All right now so we see William Miller was preaching the advent message and was his message behold the bridegroom coming or Behold the king coming Now what's very interesting and we see it as we line up in the Bible again as you look at it that is the last event that Christ mentioned in the book of Matthew chapter 24 before he says I will burst the clouds and I know your mind is might be back your mind is going in a lot of places and think a lot of things that were going to clear all of that up payment and so I said come with your mind ready to think let's get some inspiration we see it in the Bible now when you read the book rest of Matthew chapter 24 crisis just given analogies and given experiences of now that you see all the signs make sure that you're ready he says don't be that faithful servant Christ saying don't be the one that's left back in a field cry saying watch out all the signs are outlined as a result of what took place in Matthew chapter $24.00 verse 29 and the rest of the chapter not just wanting us to you know the fixture in the evil servant that's in his heart and the ones that look down and feel surprise A Now that you see all the signs make sure that you're ready to give us more signs he gives us warning not to be ready. For the signs that he's already given is that clear to everyone if it's not clear by God's grace I'm going to clear it up in a minute right now knows why and why it says as outlined in the Bible it says in 8332 years at the Miller began to resent in public the evidences of Christ and coming I want you to read those last those next forwards to me was the next 4 words of the after coming the last of the signs appear Is that clear to everyone. The last of the signs appeared which were promised by the C.B.S. tokens of his 2nd Advent said Jesus the stars shall fall from having great conversely page 333334 continues thus speaking of the stars was displayed the last of those signs of His coming concerning which Jesus Bay disciples when ye shall see all these things know that it is near how close even at the doors are theme and I subject this evening is even at the doors go back to Bibles knows what it says in Matthew 2431 Now the Bible says and he shall send his angels with a great sound of a trumpet and they shall gather together his elect from the 4 winds from one end of haven't another verse $32.00 now learn the parable the picture. When its branches yet tender and put a 4th leaves the know that summer is 9 birth 33 so likewise ye when need shall see all these things know that it is near even at the doors now what it says in verse 34 verily I say unto you This generation shall not pass till all the things be fulfilled we're going to look at that very closely tonight I want to notice that Jesus says the stars falling from heaven was the what the last of the signs before his coming again the 33 the last of the sun the prayer which were promised by a savior as tokens of his 2nd Advent Jesus says these were the last of the signs now go to Matthew Chapter 12 and resumption that this is very very important because oftentimes as we look at prophecy we think that the coming of Christ is hinged upon what Pope Francis is known. What Donald Trump is doing what Barack Obama is doing what don't Pope John Paul was doing what Putin is doing and I'm not saying that these are not prophetic tokens and Landmark but I must say that none of them existed in 888 and why do I say that because we're told that if we had accepted a particular message we're going to talk about that tomorrow evening then Christ would have come here to run 1999 or trump In exist that time Putin is this that time. Barack Obama in the exist that time or am I making sense of my brother and sisters so what am I saying prophecy and the 2nd coming of Christ is not hinged upon what the world is doing externally we're going to see that the reason why Christ is NOT come has more to do with us than to do with them I'm going to show you that from the Bible we're told Matthew Chapter 12 or 38 we're still looking for signs then certain of the scribes and of the Pharisees and to say mass that we should see a sign from the In other words show me what Trump is doing and they'll get me wrong we're going to study something that Trump is doing so I'm not saying we're negating a prophetic fulfillment are you with me my brother and sister. Show me what's taken place externally and was Christ response but he answered and said onto them. And evil and adulterous generation see good after he sign and there's no sign be given it but the sign of the Prophet Jonas In other words cry said Stop looking for an external sign and there are signs all around you and there might be a sign inside of you that's whole of my coming and we're going to study that tonight my brother and sister go to Matthew 16 he said I'm more than once Matthew Chapter 16 picking up in verse one the Pharisees also with the Sadducees came in temptin desired him that he would show them a sign from heaven he answered instead of them when it is evening you say that it's fair weather for the skies red and in morning it will be fall weather today or the sky is red and lowering all you hypocrites you can discern the face of the sky but what can he not the sun the signs of the times verse for a wicked and adulterous generation seek it after what my brother and sister as a sign crisis saying Stop looking for external signs I gave you the last sign we need to study what I'm saying that's the last line of Matthew 16 verse for some I says What about 1844 was not also prophecy it was my question is this how many of people saw Jesus move from the holy to the most holy place how many people saw it none so that's an internal sign crisis saying I want you to understand that the last sign has been given and I want to show you my position and my work so that you can understand your position and your work so cry saying this is not a sign for you to see externally is a sign for you to interpret internally to transform your life not that my last son has been given I'm not making sense or anyone my brother and sisters so he says now that you understand my position and my work you should understand your position and your work that was an external sign we see that a Matthew chapter 24 the last sign is given before the 2nd Coming of Christ in the stars falling from heaven. I know your mind is run in other places so high in medicine and October 23rd which is happened to me my birthday parties got him and he saw the vision so light came to the advent movement of my birth the praise God. So we see that Christ in His ministry saying now that my last sign has been given I want to enter into a most holy place experience and that's what the sign was in 1844 now both Revelation Chapter 10 and notice a brother Wallace one of his favorite chapters in the Bible Revelation Chapter 10. And as those of the Bible says in verse 6. We're so caught up in trying to set dates so caught up in trying to find events and rally around these events and crisis trying to get our minds away from the events to an experience the Bible says in the Book of Revelation Chapter 10 in verse 6 that Angel swearing in the eye for an angel swears you know he means what he says amen and Angel what that he say he says Time shall be was no longer so a necessity stop hinge in the message on time. Because the last sign was in 1833 am I making sense anyone our brothers sisters knows what it says here again and again I have been the warrant in regard to the times that there will was that next word never again be a message for the people of God that will be based on time when not to know that definite time either for the outcome of those off of the coming of Christ then he said the Lord show me that the message must go and it that it must not be hung on time for time will never be a test again how often is that my brother and sisters 0. I saw. That some are getting a fall the excitement arising from preach in time that the 3rd angels message can stand on its own foundation now the 3rd angels message have an urgency in itself without time to our 5th judgement is come just urgent without time Babylon is falling therefore the church needs to get out by a certain time that's urgent without time if any man works the beast as urgent without setting time so he send let the 3 angels Methodist and all without time is that clear to us my brother and sisters that he says and that needs not time to strengthen it and that it will go with mighty power to do its work and will cut short in righteousness now what tends to happen let me tell you what has happened let's say we start basing prophetic events on Trump Donald Trump is going to be the one that initiates a national son in law what happens when Trump is off the scene and his son in law is not passed or Donald Trump is going to be the one to initiate certain things and what happens if he's off the scene and all things is now full for you know what happens we lessen the power of prophecy and then we become the boy who cried wolf. And as a result the hearts that were once challenge and charge they see well things in happen as I thought there would be and as a result instead of being strengthened by the prophecy the experience is now The Minish and that's why I said Let the 3 angels message stand on their own and she said God will do it work will cut short in righteousness danger in times that she says I saw somewhere making everything bend to the next fall in reference to that time I saw that this was wrong for this reason list of what this is my brother and sisters instead of going to God Alton they really are. And earnestly desired to know the present duty they looked where ahead and made their calculation though they knew that their work would end this fall without inquiring their duty of God how often their Li Bible says tomorrow is promise and no man that's why Paul says I die how often their leaders cause Paul is saying if I die physically because I had died spiritually I'm still going to gain eternal life but it could be that I'm looking to the next event that I might not make it an event and if I'm looking forward and calculate my steps as a Christian to that based on that event a couple of years later it which I predicted rather than dying daily to Christ now and if I die physically and if I had not been done spiritually then I'm going to be die eternally and I'm a consensus anyone so Paul says we need to be dying daily instead of looking to from future event let's look at our experience of God to date don't get me wrong I'm not lessening the urgency of the 2nd Coming of Christ what am I saying I don't believe that Christ is coming years from now I believe death for some of us Christ could be coming today and I'm a consensus now and I was accusing her time that was what it says a statement published in 8051 experience and the use in the found on page $49.00 which is patient in our present of this of early writings it says I saw. The time for Jesus to be in the most holy place was nearly finished and that time can last but a few very little longer but very little longer then. As the subject was presented before me the period of Christ ministration seems almost accomplished am I accused of false or because time has continued a longer than my testimony seems to indicate and what their answer she says the angels of God in their messages to men represent time as very short. Thus has always been presented to me it is true that time has continued a longer than we expected in the early days of this message our save it did not come as soon as appears soon as we hoped but has the word of the Lord failed to answer the my brothers sisters never then says it's a remembered that the promises and the threatenings of God are alike one condition though now go back to Matthew 24 go back to Matthew $24.00 I want to see that you see something very clearly Matthew chapter $24.00 so we see that it is very conditional all the promises of God met each up to 24 and I want you notice in Matthew chapter 24 what it says in verse 31 The Bible says and he shall send his angels with a great sound of the trumpet and they shall gather together his what was that word elect from the 4 winds of the earth and then he also says this generation in verse 34 shall not pass till all these things be fulfilled question has that generation passed what generation is it that he's talking about by the way talk to me what generation saw the stars for the Philadelphia church or the adventure how long ago was that we're going to look at that but so my question is this If Jesus this generation shall not pass till all these things be fulfilled and we see that all those things have been fulfilled my question is this why has that generation passed that's of course why has a generation past its past crisis it shall not be passed to all these things be fulfilled the generations past why is the generation passed if Christ said It shall not pass to all things be fulfilled and it was fulfilled that's a question talk to me. It's on the screen praise is open looked as my brother and sisters it says but has the word of God failed never it should be remembered that the promises and it threatens of God are alike was conditional now was the condition he says the angel shall gather his elect from the 4 corners of the earth now the angels come and the elect is not elected who will they gather so Christ as the 1st thing that must happen is the elect must be elected so we see the condition is that the elect must be elected and then as a result the Bible says in verse 33 so likewise when he shall see all the things know that it is near hell near even at the doors with us up at the ceiling even at the doors is anyone stay with me tonight all right time isn't half time now what the gods elect select group of people people shows and by God All Right now here's a question 1845 years later saw still 1833 crisis and come why why is he now here because one somebody says that the elect has not yet been elected I heard another one over here the Gospels increase in all the world. But even the gospel is preached and the elect is not elected is he going to come is he just coming because people heard it or is he coming for people with an experience in fact let's go to Genesis Chapter 7 what happened in Genesis 6 and 7 does anyone know a flood right and what the God of the straw in the entire world right now. Why the god shows that time to do it Genesis Chapter 7 verse one the Bible says and the law it's in on the no come down and all the house into the ark why for the V Have I seen it or I just before me in this generation so God says no all probation is closed he that is unjust let him be on just the he that is filthy let him be filled this is he that is righteous let me right just ill and you are the only one day I find to be a righteous therefore probation is close because why you are the only elect that has been elected and I make incense that is up in heaven was there time that God says Well Lucifer and your angels you have to be thrown out of heaven it's been over 6 or close to 6000 years roughly when I show the exact time a question is this has any of the angels that has been thrown out returned or has an angels that stayed left after they stayed know why because the same thing happened he that I was on just remain on just he which is righteous man righteous so we see that Ghazi elect was elected and as a result probation and close I make incense So if 2 things that cause us probation the clothes went on righteousness is full and when righteousness is full so God says When my elect is elected and they were they and he could say Satan I give you a 100 years or a 1000000 years or a 1000 years throw everything you have and I'm like you did to Joe and I guarantee you will not get them to sin in other words in fact this words of inspiration and the White says that Satan would say that they are an impregnable force and I can do nothing with them imagine you have such an intimate relationship with Jesus. That like job he can and should do instead Satan do everything you want but do not kill him that's 844001 do everything possible and say they're going to throw in a time and as I give up I can do nothing with them all my powers at them but I cannot get these people to sin why because they have such an intimate relationship with Jesus my brother and sisters and God says as a result my elect is elected now I can close probation but if God's Elect is not elected then he can close formation my brother and sisters so what does that tell us he's not waiting on Donald Trump he's doing his part he's not waiting on Putin he's doing his part he's not way down the activities in Israel they're doing their part he's not way down Pope Francis and he's definitely above all the pope's and the history is doing his part but we can see very clearly that's not who is Jesus waiting on he's waiting on whom the elect to be elected and as a result the Bible says that the 185 years my brother and sisters where has this been go back to Matthew 24 I want you to see it in the Bible Matthew 24 I want you to see where he is Matthew Chance 2433 the Bible says so likewise when ye shall see all these things know that it is near even at the doors what is he talking about His 2nd coming he says it is even at the doors now let's say I come to Brother Wallace house and hear this what does that mean that means someone is where at the door so now would he say well he might be coming 2 years or he might be coming in 10 years or I wonder how soon he is going to come. How soon can he come rather depends the pres on what how soon the door is open to let him in and I'm a consensus anyone so my question is this where Izzy He's at the door so next question is this what is the door that a good question because member crisis Behold I stand at the door and knock Revelation chapter 3 in verse 20 What if you don't you stand at the door and knock at one of the door you know that Doris is right here so what does cry say my brother and sisters for 185 years I've been waiting and since 844 I've been doing a filthy work and while everyone is looking for external signs earthquakes the sepsis pope's presidents and prestigious people cry saying a wicked and adulterous generation look at that the sign and the no sign be given him cry says open the door let me in and I'll come in my brothers sisters now if I was going to Revelation 3 I want you to see if it is a Revelation chapter 3 in verse 20 now I want to know is in Matthew chapter 24 Jesus is the one that speaking and he says after you see all the signs I know that I am there is even at the doors Revelation Chapter 3 Jesus is now speaking to The Last Church the Church of Laodicea led you to represent to the 7th Day Adventist Church and cry says Behold I stand at the door and knock what am I saying it is US does holding up the 2nd coming of Christ my brother and sister and as soon as doors open for I said I will come well what is he waiting for those of the I was in the book of James justified James Sheppard 5. What is he waiting for James Chapter 5 knows what the Bible says James Chapter 5 verse 7 the Bible says Be patient therefore brother and unto the coming of the Lord be want patients the Bible says here is the patience of the saints here are they that keep the commands of God and have the faith of Jesus God says I'm waiting for a patient sees to be saved and this patience is does what keep the commands of God and what this mean by keep the commandments in fact what is sin sin is was the transgression of the law are you with me my brother and sisters and God is saying be patient in other words be a patient saint that keep the commandments of God Now once you keep in the comments of God and sin of the transgression of the law if you keep the commands of God had been a patient say what does that mean you've gotten victory over sayin it is anyone listen to me tonight my brothers sisters so cry saying the reason I have not come is my patient Saints have not been developed because we're still filled with sin and as a result we have not been cleansed and as a result I cannot come because the doors of their hearts are still closed to my full cleansing and that's why I said be patient and wait for the come of the Lord and praise God knows what it says the husbandman waited for the precious fruit of the earth what is in Revelation to 14 by the way the harvest is when the end of the world and what is what is obvious when the fruit is ripe so Christ and I'm waiting for ripe fruit again Christ is waiting the husband one is waiting and a long patience for it until receive the early and the lettering and then verse in the Bible says Be patient stablish your hearts for the coming of the law Joy what is cry saying. I'm at the door let me let me in and as soon as crisis let in our hearts and we allow the claims ourselves from all the firemen and all state and all spark then prices then I can come and this is the hole that my brother says this We want the king to come by plus that we do so we need to let him in. Tomorrow night we're going to study what that means but we need to let him in now somebody says well you said that's the last line what about the latter rain and loud cry in the ceiling in the 7 last plagues and all these prophetic sound the closer probations all those prophetic signs as well well yes they are let me ask this question let's go in order little time which I will 1st thing is the straights S. money which leads to the shaken which leads to the national son in law on the seal of God Now let's look at these Does anyone know who gives the straight testimony based on early writings pretty soon 69 to 70 he says those who receive that the counsel of the true witness and as a result says it has an effect on the our hearts and they give the straight testimony do you get what I'm saying if you have not received the Count's of the true witness and it has a fact upon your heart then you can't get the straight testimony so what am I saying the straight straight testimony cannot be given while crisis outside of the now what about the shaking what happens in a shaken it's a separation of the wheat and tares Is there any wheat with Christ outside the door and I'm a consistent he one what about the seal of gun one of the seal of God The settling into the truth both intellectually and spiritually so that we cannot be moved can you be sealed while crisis outside the door no so evil all these events my brothers sisters waits the entrance of Christ into the doors of our hearts is anyone listening to me tonight. Everything that you see on a screen is pending crises get inside of the hearts the our doors are the heart of the doors of our hearts so we see all these events elaborate we're told not one of us will ever receive the seal of God while characters have one spot Austen upon them is left with us to remedy the facts of our characters to cleanse us all to love every defilement then the lottery will fall upon us of the early fall upon the disciples on the day of Pentecost what am I saying all these events my brother sister is still pending Christ going inside the doors of our hearts he went on us crisis waiting loud cry and all these things that we wrap up have a few minutes here now. What kept Israel out of Promised Land on belief now why has the price come now is what it says in the long night of gloom is trying but the morning is a further mercy listen because if the message should come so many will be found on ready God's on the willingness to have to speak will perish has been the reason for solong the late my brothers sisters this is mercy this is love cry saying I'm not coming just the come I'm coming to take someone home to me I have mentioned that's waiting now down 244000 follow the lamb with us so if we go away so cry said if I have not developed a 144000 if I do not have people to fill my mentions what is the purpose of me coming so therefore he's not willing for us to perish and that's been the reason for so long a delay crisis waiting with long a desire and we're skipping some of these for the sake of time let me get to this one now here's the problem is this time has continued a few years longer than they expected therefore they think it may contain a few years more and what these words in these things I saw was great danger not just danger but what great danger now is very interesting. I found this article recently. About $833.00 and if you saw it battle citizen scientists which are scientists that study the things in in nature. But when I saw this article recently you know the lady said I'm not going to do for the sake of time what he says look it was definitely a Grantley spectacular event but since it happened this was what 2040 I believe was. One of it was what's said since this happened like you know 18485 years ago you can rest assure that it's not a sign of the coming of Christ as many thought that it was one of my saying when time passes complacency naturally sets in and as the people of God we have to be very careful and that's what set I saw great danger and now what is the danger goes each other for we're going to close oh what are those H. up before and is the danger we can begin to look at others and says Well now that I recognize that Christ is waiting on the righteous to be righteous as I look at my neighbor and see what he's doing in comparison to what I'm doing we could begin to make ourselves a very pious and then we think that Christ is not we know me but his way into my neighbor if I'm making sense to anyone so begin to compare ourselves among ourselves and judge ourselves by ourselves in the Bible says Whosoever does that it's not wise here's the danger was each of the 4 Know what it says here in verse 17 The Bible says he for him is joined to his idols let him alone what God said Ephraim he joined to his idols let him alone now most people look at this text and he says well I guess. Guy was done with them right but go to Chapter 11 I want to know something different out of Chapter 11 of verse 8 I want to know is what the Says. Chapter 11 verse 8 the Bible says how shall I give the UP be for Him How should I the live the Israel how shall I make the as a demo how shall I set the INS or Boehm my heart is turned within me my repenting and my killing together so what am I say my mother and sisters even though it seems as if even add no hope Gaza's I want to know that I'll never leave you and on never to say you got this even how can I give the up but don't miss this point when you go to Revelation Chapter 7 and God names the 12 tribes if there Ephraim's name is not mentioned you get what I'm saying let's do what I'm saying God never gave up on the from what Ephraim gave up on God let me say that again God never gave up on the free him but Ephraim consistently rejected God consistently rejected accounts of God consistently reject the presence of God consistently was determined to stay in a sinful condition and even the all powerful all knowing on the present God says When one heart is recalcitrant and one heart is not one of the turn to repent they gossip as much power as I have there's nothing that I can do why because I want your choice that's why says choose even. Me will serve so what am I saying there's a danger in keeping knocking there's a danger there's a danger we're going to look at this more tomorrow night but tonight what I want to say to us distant this night my brothers sisters if we have not yet given God our entire hearts if there are things in our lives that keeps Christ at the door you know what if that not going is something. What things I have no idea what he knows and got to say whatever that thing is I'm knocking and here's a problem we're going to share more tomorrow night we think the solution is to get rid of the thing and then like rice and you know my friend there will never happen crisis open a door let me in and you like the strength and the power to remove that thing from the life all access for the entrance and once I'm in I'll be a strength I'll be a very present help in a time of trouble and you and I can work together you minutes of humanity combined with divinity the Bible says does not commit sin and oftentimes we think that our humanity could fight the assails of the enemy and you will always fail. The solution let him it was a solution let him in some eyes is what that means or tomorrow night we want to study it when to make tomorrow evening very very practical because now we see very clearly Christ is waiting me us a crisis waiting on someone else now lost the point if you get what I'm saying Christ is waiting on me so we need to learn how to let him in a moment that is meditate on these are the words of the song put on the screen and I want to say a special prayer it's and I'm going to invite you to come and pray with me tonight at Lord's because the heart said the Savior is waiting to enter your heart why don't you let him come in there's nothing in this world to keep your part. What is your answer to him. These words Time after time he has waited before and now he's waiting again why. To see if you're willing was his words to see if you're willing to though open the door all how you want to come in. That's crisis are. Not going to come down before read these next words because these next word I believe applies to. US if you will take one step toward the Savior my friend you'll find his arms open wide receive him and all of the darkness will end with then your heart you know by you know this. Is a door. In Crisis The solution is simple let me in and as soon as I come in and abide in your heart you find all the darkness all the trials all the obstacles all the sins all the guilds all the unforgiveness all the filth that have been bogged down the that the souls that we watch that we know that we are supposed to watch the music that we now suppose to list the association we keep that we're not supposed to Gaza's let me in the heart. And through my power and my strength I can combine my divinity with humanity the Bible says when that happens men does not commit sin the key is to let them in. My appeal tonight is this is this someone here tonight is saying Lord I want to take one step towards my Savior. Because I know that it's always open wide. And as I receive them I recognize that all of my darkness will end and with then my heart Christ will abide is there such a one for when appropriate and I. Want to pray with you tonight. Where it's all in or is of inspiration every congregation their souls that are hesitating. Almost persuaded to be holy in God's eyes. But the minister makes no appeal I make him feel tonight I'm doing my part. And our responsibility is to respond to the call. Behold I stand at the door and knock and know. That's like Christ and tonight what he's saying. Let's let him in. Again tomorrow evening want to study very privately what does it mean to like rice and what does mean to get the trees. Going to make a very practical to more but thank you for coming out tonight. Let us pray together Father thank you so much for loving a so much Lord that you're not willing to give up on us Lord thank you so much Lord for not willing to let go thank you so much Lord for staying in pleading in and doing everything necessary Lord to save us. In our heart respond to your call and tonight. We pray in a special way Father that is not just a night experience but an everlasting experience Father I pray Lord that you shows very practically what does it mean to open a door just very practical or what does it mean that within our hearts you can abide and when this is done the father we can gain victories Lord and I pray that even if we slip up along the path where our little children slip and fall all we pick them up and guide their steps. Where it's all that once your steps is gone now a step slower than all steps as the fall and where it's all that you aim to keep us from falling to present us faultless operate that in our in our missteps and I'll slip it we don't get so bogged down in so heavy weighted lower that we fall back in the distance things of the past give us victory father now pro God that you blessed us tonight and maybe meditate on these words that you wait on us all heaven is watching right now Father and rejoicing there might be some sadness in heaven so I can imagine that there's a guardian angel who knows the actions of his assignment and he's saying you know that you need to respond to this appeal and while some angels are rejoicing for the decisions that have been made some angels might be sent saying I know your actions I've been protected you while we may not respond to the call of Jesus the opportunity still presents itself now if you have not chosen every head and bought in every eyes closed. That we're going to turn our hospital Jesus tonight. And we thank you. We ask in the precious name of Jesus.
