I'm glad you've joined me we are about to open the Bible together we'll be blessed because it's God's would and are always blessed from God's word and because we'll pray and ask God to specially bless us with His Holy Spirit let me begin 1st by saying this I hope you're Ok I hope you're encouraged I hope you have no reason to feel that whatever your circumstances are your trust in God is strong we're kind of in uncharted waters way this is a strange new world in which we find ourselves but God is still God I've said to people I think I've posted online if it seems like you're in stormy seas right now and the wind is blowing in the rain this is pelting down of the boat is filling with water look behind you remember to look behind you who's there with you in the boat Jesus is with you and it's his boat he's got to get both you and me through we're going to be Ok We're going to hang on tight and today we'll find courage in God's wood and we'll go. Behind the scenes see a little bit of what's taking place Come on let's pray together and expect God's blessing Father in heaven we're grateful we can come to you today in the name of Jesus as we open the pages of your sacred would speak and be good we pray bless us for your honor and glory for our edification encouragement and spiritual growth. And we thank you in Jesus name and we said together a man many discoveries are made by people standing on the shoulders of those who went before them it seems that the gaining of knowledge is a progressive thing in science in medicine that is definitely the case let's go back it was the 860 s. at a Frenchman named Louis past was working. He did some much in developing the science of vaccination he was one who popularized you might say invented. In the 860 s. he was conducting a series of experiments on the relationship between germs and disease as a microbiologist he believed that many diseases were spread by tiny organisms invisible to the naked eye he disprove the theory of spontaneous generation you're glad you live today and not then spontaneous generation was the idea that little creatures such as fleas all maggots just simply came into existence out of dust or out of did flourish just like that. You know it's no surprise people used to believe things like that as unlikely as today they sound without microscopes who could know otherwise and if you're not looking for something you're not going to find it but Louis passed looked and he found and he's recognized today as one of the fathers of. The theory now he was not the 1st to propose the idea far from it but he developed the idea really brought it into the public eye and brought it into general acceptance. Theory pesto was convinced that there will need all things present that we couldn't see that we couldn't see them didn't mean they would. That's how Pastor isolation came to be he believed that microorganisms cause things such as milk and wine and beer to spoil microorganisms did that he believed and he believed that microorganisms cause people to spoil. Believed and proved that something you cannot see could do great damage I'm going to say that again. The scientists believed and proved that something you cannot see could do great damage something you could not see could spread disease no we don't believe that now do we believe in germs Oh yes we do we believe in viruses Oh yes we do that's why we wash our hands how long tell me how long is the reckon if 20 seconds we know that now that's why we don't appreciate people coughing or sneezing and space that's why we have grossed out that's why we're shocked even by those videos that show health droplets spread you've seen those videos if you haven't you need to we've come to believe that our health is affected by things that we cannot see now let's switch let's think about spiritual health. Could it be that our spiritual health is affected by things that we cannot see could it be that there are things that we cannot see forces that we do not readily witness things taking place behind the scenes that affect us spiritually manifestly in a direct way oh we believe that to be true and we go to see it from the Bible in a well known parable please tune with me in your Bible to Matthew chapter 13 Matthew chapter 13 and the Bible says this and we're starting I need to be able to tell you exactly what verse in verse 24 it says in Matthew 13 those 24 another parable unto them saying the kingdom of heaven is likened unto a man which sowed a good seed in his field but while man slipped his enemy came and 10 is among the wheat and went his way I'm going to read through this parable and then I'll go back and will will will will amble slowly through it but when the blade was sprung up and brought forth fruit then appeared Ted is also so the servants of the household that came and said unto him. Did you not so good seed in the field from whence then. He said to them an enemy has done this the servants said on to him will tell them that we go and gather them up but he said nay. Lest while you gather up the 10 is. Also the wheat with them and then verse 30 Jesus relaying the parable says these words let both grow together until the harvest. And in the time of harvest I will say to the reapers gather you need together 1st that is and bind them in bundles to them but gather the wheat into my bon its go back now I told you I would another parable he spoke to them he had spoken to them what about about the parable of the seed some so by the wayside some sprang up but had no depth of some sprang up but then it was choked by what Jesus explained was the cares of this life and then the good seed that sprang up and it was fruitful on both forth much whether that was the previous parable here but now Jesus speaks again again it's about seed. So 1st the seed was sown and the seed responded differently to certain conditions now the seed is sun and somebody comes and messes with meadows with the sea. Backing up to verse 24 the kingdom of heaven is likened unto a man who sowed good seed in his field God has so good seed. Good seed the Word of God God has sung that seat and it grows up but while people were sleeping notice that while people slip you know something in Matthew chapter 24 Jesus says watch and be ready watch and pray Jesus does not want to sleeping in Matthew chapter 25 the parable of the 10 virgins you will notice that all 10 of them slipped. In by what wise 5 were foolish but all slept we want to be awake I'm going to tell you this again and again before we're done during this time what we're seeing going on in the world around us is an opportunity given to us to walk up you know what a wake up call is like right you don't always like them but you're sleeping blissfully you know that you have to get up early and you called the front desk and you said can you give me a wake up call would you do that please and even though it was early and then you would like maybe much earlier than you would like the phone rang those phones ring loud you're awake it's like an alarm clock of course the alarm clock that rings you know the best the idea of course is to go to bed on time and wake up when your body tells you to wake up and you'll be Ok like that but sometimes we need the alarm clock and the alarm caucus. And if you've got a good one it doesn't sound good and it squawks and you wake up. You want to be awake it's not always fun to be awake it's comfortable to be asleep you are warm when you are sleep you are cozy when you are asleep generally there's nothing plaguing you a bothering you when you are asleep at least not that you are aware it is while people sleep that the enemy does his work my brother my sister if ever there was a time that we needed to be awake that time is now awake we cannot be sleep walking our way through life spiritual zombies spiritually dead but we give some evidence that we are alive it's time to be awake and it's a privilege to be awake as well while people slip the enemy came and today is among the wheat and he went his way he got out of town when the blade was sprung up and brought forth fruit then appeared sorry then it appeared that he is also now the sevenths noticed this we've got a problem here that good crop that we grew there is something nefarious growing up in the midst we need to take action here they told the House hold Didn't you so good seed in your field from whence then had to test if you so good seed if you used the good stuff why in the world is there. A we need of some kind growing up in the very midst of this this is going to make a hobbist difficult let's go get it out of there where did it come from good seed where did it come from in the beginning God created the heaven and the earth it was a good world when the end where the sin come from. Where the tests come from weighted death come from where did viruses come from where did fear come from God said it is good it is good it is good it is good it is good God said it is there are 3 good he created a beautiful world what in the world we'll go around today and there is dead and destruction and terrorism and tyranny didn't you're so good seed God What in the world where have these we come from God on says the question he says in verse $28.00 he said to them and enemy has done this and enemy has done this ladies and gentlemen Be it known to be we are living in a in an unprecedented time what's going on now I may get myself in trouble with one or 2 people by saying this let that stop me before and I'm not going to let it stop me now an enemy has done this response of all for the coronavirus China not on some government the American government well you know that in Germany the government pasta law and this and that and the other. My friend let me speak you just about as plainly as I can if that's the stuff you are hearing. If that's what your friends are telling you find new friends delete the e-mails now I'm not supposing that it didn't originate in China that's what we think but that's not the point I wanted to tell you where it really came from before I do I'm just going to say this conspiracy theories are not the gospel you might find them interesting but they're not the gospel you find our mandate as a people in Revelation Chapter 14 it's the everlasting Gospel the 3 angels messages and by the way somebody with a great amount of wisdom once said that the message of the 3rd angel is the message of justification by faith in verity the message of the 3rd angel if any man worship the beast and does not worship the beast you've heard you've you've read that you know what it says 1st angel fear God give glory to Him the hour of his judgment is come and worship him a made heaven and earth the sea and the fountains of water 2nd angel Babylon has fallen is full of the 3rd angel if any men wish him the beast and receive his mock in his forehead or in us at the same shall drink also of the wine of the wrath of God writes. But what is it really when you boil it down it's justification by faith you read those 3 and his messages and you say I need Jesus the only way out here is through Christ yes it has to do with worship yes it has to do with the beast power yes it has to do with coming out of Babylon but you wrap it up or you boil it down and the message that God is endeavoring to get through my thick skull and through your Hopefully skull is we need Christ the last thing we need is another Thera see in town we need more of Jesus and His righteousness I want to tell you something if you're talking about the coronavirus and you all focus is on what some shadowy group did what some mysterious organization did if you all focus is on what some government apparently did according to someone who is you and I don't know anyway then I'm telling you your focus is in the wrong place and if you are hearing people who are preaching to you it conspiracies and behind the scenes stuff and something that might have happened but we have no idea as to whether related or not if we are trying to read minds and hearts and interpret things that we've not been given life for listening to the wrong voices the voice we ought to be listening to today is the voice of Christ who is saying look in my direction Jesus who are saying look I've been grave you on the palms of my hands Jesus who says I can give you cleanse you take away your guilt give you a hope and a future I'm being blunt today this is the time for the church to shine you know what I was I was contacted I could read you the text message my friend. A worker in the church he said John this could be the church's finest moment. Finest Hour this could be the churches finest hour and I had to get back to my say Amen yes it could it could be the church's finest hour this is a time to experience righteousness by faith and to share with others the hope that we have been Jesus a soon coming Jesus crucified Jesus you know they laid him in a grave grave could not hold him he came out of the grave and ascended to his father came back went up into seeds for us at God's right hand this could be our finest hour ladies and gentlemen I believe in conspiracy one great big conspiracy theory and the devil is the great conspirator and enemy has done this the devil is the coronavirus conspirator sin exists because of him illness exists because of him death exists because of him and racism and hate and frustration are all in this world because Satan long ago said I want to rip out of God's hands that which is precious to Him He created men in the image of God and I will death face the image of God from men he will be mine and I will rule and I will receive worship in this world and not Jesus Christ there's a great conspiracy going on behind the scenes there's something happening we're seeing countries in lockdown we're seeing the sorts of things that in living memory we have never seen before what's going on and telling you what's going on to tell you 2 things. The devil is working and he's working overtime he's behind every case of sickness his behind every full hospital bed his behind every busy doctor loading him down with with work because the devil is the architect of sin and suffering point number one the devil is behind all of this it demonstrates to us that the back so is real we have no time to waste we have no time to play. The battle is real and 2nd. Is taking occasion to allow this thing to happen to get our attention I'm going to fatten out these 2 points one we are caught in a great controversy and so there was job living a happy life we had all of the children and and one wife and all of his possessions animals and lands and so forth and life was going swimmingly for job and the devil said you know what if you let me out of this brother will turn its back on you job suffering chapter after chapter after chapter after chapter in the Book of Job Job suffered unaware that behind the scenes he was the victim in the devil's deadly game of the sin and sickness and devil meant he could not realize that he was a pawn being moved around the poor around the board by a devil. To cause somebody to have faith in God or. Theory we can't see what's going on behind the veil any more than people back there before passed could see germs in a petri dish. We can't see it but it's been revealed to us through the Bible in the wood of God revealed to us in the Bible there is a great controversy raging don't for a moment think that you are immune in this great controversy devil has your number no time I think in a future Have we ever had a clearer look at the great controversy taking place then we have had now there is a battle raging you and I without the aid of a microscope or some such thing cannot see covering a wound let's say germs in a dish but when we look deep up we say look at that microorganisms. We don't get to see behind this bio but if we could we would saying goes for all in angels demons thank God good angels as somebody said holding back the winds of strife. In this thing is real which indicates that God is real and the cross is real and Jesus Israel and salvation Israel and damnation Israel and the devil Israel and sin Israel come on now where are you standing today let this great controversy be a real thing in your mind and today is the opportunity that both you and I have to choose as to where we are going to stab Where are we going to stand in this great controversy it is real you knew that before today I'm reminding you of that today I want you to keep that in the front of your mind not way back there in the back it's real. When temptation knocks at your door that's the devil saying if you just give me a toehold before long I have a foothold and it won't be long and it'll be a strong hole when you when somebody is is is enticed seeing you into sin but you know what the proverbs say my son if sin is enticed the consent thou not that's an opportunity for us to say hold on a minute he done this isn't just a risk a joke my colleague is telling me this is a great controversy devil want to make a sinner out of me somebody rubs you the wrong way and your temperature starts rising wait a minute you know I'm going to set that person and set that person straight this is the great controversy no you have the opportunity you choose where am I going to stand in this thing where am I going to stand God is giving us the opportunity to see this thing play out in real time there is a great controversy raging How are you responding to this thing there is a conspiracy he's the coronavirus conspirator here's the great conspiracy. The devil himself the enemy of souls behind every temptation and every sin what are we going to do the Bible tells us and probably 18 in verse 10 the name of the Lord is a strong Taua the righteous runs into it and is safe the name of the Lord is a strong tell I'm repeating. The righteous run into it and is safe. I want to share something with you in this great controversy this great conspiracy that's raging God wants you and me both to. Do you know something I would like to suggest to you how that outthinking as being dramatically affected hugely affected. Now listen to this and I hope I'm not mis understood or misinterpreted here but I'll say what I have to say we all worried sick some of us about a June about a virus now that's not inappropriate no need to be worried sick Let your faith in your trust be in the Lord but I'm going to tell you if you're in the epicenter right now if you're living in New York City you're not sure whether they look this way or that because it's a real hot spot there are other places that are hot spots and I think the fact is if the virus was able to spread in Washington state or in New York City it's able to spread wherever you are so we're concerned and that's appropriate we're concerned out of respect for ourselves we are concerned out of respect for others I was walking. Yesterday walking in a pod so my neighbors we reached out to each other like this we're concerned and I want to respect them I'm fine I have no symptoms I'm not positive neither is he but we're respecting each other now you know how that goes. Respecting each other but I wonder if you can see in this great controversy in this grand conspiracy how the coronavirus conspiracy. Has blinded our eye. And affected our thinking cities have shut down borders have closed nations are under lockdown because of a virus because of a virus that has killed 25000 people globally unfortunately that number is very soon going to be out of date somebody is going to say man if only If only it was like when Brad Cho preached that. 25000 people globally how many people in the world coming up to 8000025000 being killed by this of course that's terrible. People are outraged outraged outraged by people who don't practice social distancing I heard yesterday. Gentleman who was a teacher was in the supermarket and a lady started yelling at him. You are not 6 feet away from May. He didn't realize and he kind of felt like he was 6 feet away from. But she was very concerned and let him know why because we want to be safe why because we don't want to see them or people die I don't want to die I want to get sick oh my neighbor to die I don't want my elderly friends to die we don't want our grandparents to die in abundance of caution that's right it's right don't miss Humi this is right I'm Ok with that I read where some folks let that child play on a closed playground and some other folks came along incensed at what was taking place and they had a fight the adults did not would have thought if you a planning on practicing social distancing you wouldn't go sticking your fist in somebody's mouth but evidently they felt like that was Ok and so you get my point right this thing is so serious we're doing everything we can to stop it you can travel here you can go there you can come out of your house in some places you've got to isolate I'm not saying this is inappropriate we are outraged by the disease and we're doing everything we can to stop the virus from spreading Do you realize how inconsistent we are as human beings do you realize oh there's a virus spreading this is even worse virus and that sin because sin causes death to everyone it was a virus a deadly taint that caused the death of Jesus the Son of God the Son of God the around the world 25000 people have been killed by the coronavirus and we're distressed by that don't you hear me even don't even intimate that I'm talking that down I'm not the numbers going to rise and even if it was one that's a tragedy especially for the family of the one. But did you know that an estimated 88000 people die in this country every year. That $1600.00 plus a week do the math more than $200.00 a day from alcohol related causes alcohol is the 3rd leading preventable cause of death in the United States where is the outrage $88000.00 people die you know all we oughta do shut the liquor stores. In the supermarkets back in time is a you never used to sell alcohol here don't sell it now I understand history of prohibition I know that that didn't work out too well but as a society listen devil has got us so blinded that we will scream at somebody in a supermarket who gets close and think nothing of it when somebody comes out of a liquor store pushing a shopping cart full of death full of domestic violence that shopping cart isn't full of alcohol it's full of black eyes broken bones car accidents traumatized children and wives with broken bone. Are Ok with that and you explain how I can the devil has done his job we are great moralists now but we are selective moralists you see how we're acting about the coronavirus and we got to do what we got to do I have friends and family members who are very vulnerable I don't want them to get this thing some of them would die right let's do what we should do. 88000 deaths in the United States from alcohol we haven't talked about our friends north of the border our friends south of the border we haven't talked about Europe. Drink we haven't talked about age and the South Pacific in Africa we haven't talked about that stuff on doing a global tele your head will spin but evidently that's Ok I have not been able to work that out 102 people a day die on American roads 40000 people a year in motor vehicle accidents or have we done it without the cars off the road have we said no we had to figure this out so that people can get from here to this safely have we don't know we're just going to keep Ron all know I'm not advocating that we should get cars off the road I mean at all I tell you it would be a good idea if you had to reset your driver's license every so often you go to when you're 18 years of age and now you're 50 and you've had 32 years of bad habits building up take another chance but that's just me that's just me and so we're outraged about one pandemic but there's a pandemic of comments on the roads no we're not bothered by that much more than 490000 people died. About to rattle off a statistic you just going to hear it and shrug So let me slow down more than the 480000 people. A 1000000 people die every year in these United States from tobacco related causes Can you imagine the grief involved with all that death can you imagine the cost involved with all that death and what did we do about it while we sued the tobacco companies and they went right on the back of still cheap at least it is in the United States. Half a 1000000 you see how you see how selective we are without morality you see how selective we do you have any idea how much money is lost due to gambling how many homes are ruined hell many spouses have their lives up in that hell many children have their futures stolen we don't seem to care no one seems to care when somebody lost everything he had gambling and jumped off a bridge and killed himself did I say let's shut the casinos you know the answer to that question do you know what I read I didn't even read the story the headline was enough the government has asked that all non essential abortions not be carried out because of the threat of the coronavirus ladies and gentleman nor the essential abortions Well that would be $99.00 something around the percent of them we understand that sometimes in cases of life and death abortion is absolutely essential we understand that but we also know come on be as honest as I want to be that abortion is routinely used as a form of contraception that's all contraception after the fact where's the outrage. You got folks and understand that we've seen them but they are routinely mocked routinely mocked and certainly there are some anti abortion protesters who care to fund the need to do that I would encourage you to pray to end abortion and pray that God directs people step so that this thing might not be necessary and do what it can that's an illegal and so on this is the holocaust of modern day what if we don't have every shot all the abortion clinics have we mandated contraception for everybody what have we done almost nothing. Lock down that city in some places do not leave your home. I'm not saying that's wrong. I'm saying there's a conspirator behind the scenes who has got us thinking twisted very twisted prostitution is not a victimless crime we laugh about it make jokes about it turn a blind eye say all that's boys being boys and very clearly goes being goes. On got away with what he was prosecuted for. And people knew what he was doing and we used to joke about the Hollywood costing couch everybody that's all fashionable and evil but for as long as we can remember it was just something that was little amusing and titillating not a thought given to the victims of those terrible actions that had taken place 80000 people die from diabetes 600 a week no one's freaking out about that have you stopped to think of the damage done by pornography ruins homes ruins mines ruins lives takes people to some desperate places some of them will end up in prison for the rest of their lives you see how you see how smart the conspirator is you see Gone comes to us and convicts us obscene Olson he doesn't say this one's bad but those other ones are Ok he doesn't say this one is bad but that one is socially acceptable we are living in an age men where more reality is relative my morality goes here or your morality goes there or you do things that listen Where's the standard I'm going to tell you where it is it's here in the Word of God Let's get to the would of God open it up read it absorb it. On it. Who wrote it was it in the book of Jeremiah the woods were found and I did eat them. Chuan the would of God It is written like verses that start like that man shall not live by bread alone but by every word that proceeds from the mouth of God Look at the reaction to the coronavirus I am not suggesting it is wrong later on when it's all gone we can do a post-mortem and we might say Well that was a bit extreme we undertook to do but they have maybe we went too far and they are not far enough there now is not the time to be pointing fingers of blame at politicians who are trying to do their best and civic leaders who have the weight of a city or a jurisdiction on their shoulders now is it time to look at this thing and say it's representative of the great controversy now in my life maybe I don't lie. But perhaps I'm Ok with the last maybe in my life I don't like lying but maybe an Ok with Sabbath breaking the idea is this when Jesus comes into your heart and the wood of God takes place within you God's standard of righteousness becomes our standard of righteousness and we don't pick and choose anymore and no you're not going to you're going to put that on me I'm not saying we have got a way to heaven I'm not saying that at all I'm going to say we will draw the line with God draws the line and we will let God's will be done and of God says to you go ahead in that sin then that's between you and God but he won't and God will lead you in pounds of a righteousness why we want to be filled with the presence of Christ and reflect to the word the character of God That's what we want we want to reflect to the world the character of God You want. Just recently read the life story a cd Brooks tremendous amount of even mention that last week. Very well dressed man came to him one day said what I do about my alcohol I have some fine expensive alcohol What do I do and elder Brooks said here's what I suggest you do suggest you take that bottle by bottle and your bathrooms and kneel down before your toilet make an altar of it and pour it out as an offering to God He knew he must have been offending that man sensibilities and he told a man you take every last bottle and pour it down the drain in a man's head if you had told me anything less than that I would have walked away and had nothing more to do with this all this should. Stroll the line when God draws the law allow him to raise you up God What happens is Jesus gets in your life and he lifts you up and then you will place a ceiling there and Sally want to go past this then God says Give me a little more of the hot and you raise up a little higher and then you say I don't want to go any further up Jesus prayed to his father when he said nevertheless not my will but your will be done and that's what we want done the will of God And so the coronavirus jet a tells us reveals to us that there was a great conspiracy behind the scenes we are in a battle that has been termed as the great controversy where in it up to here. And there's only one safe place in this and that's to stand with Jesus stands that still that Jesus had this is no time for crazy theories this is a time for the would of God the Holy Word of God I would like you to see a 2nd point that God does not want you to miss in the coronavirus crisis and that is this In fact I want you to go with me in your Bible to Revelation chapter. 13 we look in Matthew 13 now let's go to Revelation Chapter 13 because in the parable of the week in the tale. The land of. The men who sowed the seed in the field said to us servants let both grow together until the hobbist you see there's going to be a harvest in the in the time of harvest I will say to the reapers gather together the tears bind them in bundles and burn. Them burn them but gather the wheat into my bud that Smith you 1330 you see what God is telling us is there will be a time when the saved will be saved and the lost will be lost and there will be a harvest and and last days it's going to come to a head over an issue as an evangelist I've been asked more times than I can count my friend and colleague here at it is written past Eric Filkins you're another evangelist dozens of evangelist it Series same We've talked about this people will say to you or to me when you look at Revelation Chapter 13 and a global crisis how can any of this actually come to pass how would it be possible people say to know who has received the mark of the beast and who has not and they say given this prophetic scenario. Will it really happen Ok We're going to read now Revelation Chapter 13 starting in verse one I stood up on the sand of the sea and saw a Big East rise up out of the Sea What's the beast a global power this is a global power it's the same power as was the medieval church in medieval times it had 7 heads and 10 horns upon his horns 10 crowns upon his heads the name of blasphemy a blessed beaming power the beast I saw like a leg was like a leopard feet whereas the feet of a bear mouth as the mouth of a lion and the dragon gave him his power and his seat and great author already so an entity a global power given all thorough and power by Satan himself again we're talking about the medieval church. Rebooted last days I saw one of his heads as it were wounded to death 1798 at his deadly wound was healed and all the way wondered off to the beast we are not they. But we're getting very very very very close you've seen the rise in power prominent prestige of this thing and certainly it is of great great influence in the world today we're getting close to the time when all the world will wonder around the beast for and they worshiped the dragon who gave power unto the beast and they worshiped the beast saying who is like under the beast and who was able to make war with him again we're talking about a go alone pole. A global I don't want to call it a happening a global thing. To coin a phrase the focus of the entire world will be folk will be drawn to this this one particular. Circumstance 1st coronavirus day it was January 11th of this year if I'm not mistaken and in that time the focus of the whole world has been drawn to this one issue and ladies and gentlemen if I might it's an issue of people getting sick and dying it's not about someone it's not tyranny it's it's an illness in a certain sense you might call it less serious than some illnesses unless of course you're vulnerable in which it's just terrible and frankly we'll be able to treat many many many more people with health systems weren't being overwhelmed you see so the numbers the death the mortality rate would be even lower if only we hadn't been caught by surprise unprepared not enough tests we don't know that Q Are there aren't enough ventilators hospitals being overwhelmed. The attention of the globe has been focused on this one issue the Bible says the attention of the globe will be focused on an issue in this last days and so I'm going to jump to verse 7 it was given unto him to make war with the Saints and to overcome them. Again I would ask you please that you don't misread what I'm saying right now governments have been saying you will do this and you will do that and you won't do that and you won't do that. You may go there you cannot go there you may go to that business you cannot go to that business you may open your place of business you may not I certainly don't want you to think I'm suggesting that that is inappropriate what I'm suggesting is that what we're seeing now is going to be ramped up amplified Revelation Chapter 13 is today on steroids. Today is just a figure just a shadow of what we're going to see but it is a figure and it is a shadow telling us that the scenario in Revelation Chapter 13 is real real can happen we believe that before but now we really believe that we really believe that it was given to him to make war with the Saints irate and overcome them and power was given him over all kindreds and tellings and nations global power persecution today no that's not persecution but imagine wholesale power becoming corrupt that becomes persecution all that dwell upon the earth shall worship Him whose names are not written in the book of life of the Lamb slain from the foundation of the world an act of worship will be enforced some will not want to go along with that of course Revelation 1315 and he had power to give the life on to the image of the beast that the image of the beast should both speak and cause that as many as would not worship the image of the beast should be killed let me ask you this the way you have seen some people act the way how in some parts of the world now there are police on the streets ready to pick up. A rest move along someone their crime is being to come outside to walk through town in Revelation Chapter 13 we see a time of absolute global crisis it has been suggested this will be a time of enormous up evil around the world where absolutely nobody is safe today I consider myself safe you know why I wash my hands I practice social distancing my immune system is strong I don't want to get this thing I haven't got it if I do my concern will be that I don't pass on to somebody else I'll come through the yellow in the strong. Assume fairly safely I'm not talking about recklessness now but if you're young and strong you can assume fairly safely that you'll be Ok it's an assumption but it's a fair assumption in this last days we're going to have a credit this last day we're talking about we will have a crisis when nobody is safe and so if nobody is safe can you imagine extreme measures being taken Oh yes extreme measures will be taken he causes all both small and great those 16 rich and poor free and bond to receive a mark in their right hand or in their foreheads and that no man might buy or sell save he that had the money or the name of the beast or the number of his name my point and I hope I've made it very clear I will make it again is this what we're seeing today helps us to understand that what the Bible says is coming is coming is coming and you know today you know people are saying they're saying men accounted for to lose my job because I got the money in the bank I'm not finding fault with you would be good in a time of crisis if you had money in the bank. For some of us the reason we don't have money in the bank is because we saw a car we couldn't afford but we bought it anyway we wanted a vacation that we couldn't afford but we bought it anyway we saw somebody with a wrist watch that that measured your steps and measures your heart rate and tells you how many calories you're burning and you didn't need it but you thought I can afford it but my friend has got one is sure is cool get it now if you had that $1200.00 now and if you had driven an inexpensive I'm not talking about if you've got money to afford it God bless you if you've been blessed bunch but for many of us we gotta learn to live with it on me it's time of crisis coming the Bible says time of trouble such as never was since there was a nation you know it be wise to take your health seriously what we're learning now is that people I'm not finding fault but there are some people who are vulnerable and some of that because of their own doing for some people would be good if you could go back and have a do of it and say you know what I'm less vulnerable because I'm well it has been suggested that the last place you want to be in the time of trouble is living in the in a city and I've heard that people from the inner city been fleeing trying to get to wilderness places I heard about an island in Great Britain where everybody seemed to have the same idea was remote and abandoned or not abandoned it was remote and what's the word. Ignored I don't know you decide what the wood is and suddenly people are showing up and say well there's a lot of people here they all have the same idea I'm not finding fault but I'm suggesting if we're serious about standing in the last days wouldn't it be a good idea if we weren't stuck in the city flat busted broke in bad health again ladies gentlemen I'm not saying if you've got a condition you can't do anything about I'm not talk about that I'm not finding fault with somebody who's. Just in a tough financial situations you had some bad luck it wouldn't be good to be able to grow food so that you said God is going to feed our family no you can't do that if you own a 14th floor an apartment building maybe you can pray and say Lord I see now that this last a thing is real and it's truly going to happen maybe you can see that and maybe you can say friend maybe you can say it's time. Now that I've seen how this can play out I believe in His mercy God is giving us a dry run a dry run and let me say this I'm going to go back to the statement made by my friend the text message I God this is a time for the church to shine this could be the church's finest hour couldn't it be is in a time right now that we give people an opportunity to see what Christianity is to exude hope to encourage the person living over your back fence is going to be Ok there's a better day coming how come you're so confident Well my hope is in Jesus my hope isn't in me my hope is in the wood I'm reading in Daniel 12 a time of trouble coming such as never was Revelation 13 folks cannot buy and sell people being put to death oh man I don't want that but it's going to happen in the name of the log and God is looking for a people who are so sold out to Jesus they understand that in this great controversy they've taken their stand with Jesus on his side. They said Lord not my will your will be done they're outraged not only by a virus but by all sin we want to have a no tolerance policy for sin in our lives and when with fail we'll go back to Jesus the most a lot be merciful to me a sinner when we're stumble and fall where say Jesus lift me up when we sink into the water we cry out like Peter did launch save me and he reaches out his hand and picks us up at a restores us and remakes us Peter I don't know him I don't know you sound like one of his followers No sir I don't know him in fact let me prove how much I don't know by cursing and swearing and denying God Peter went away and he whipped that he must have wondered if Jesus would ever want to have anything to do with him again Peter do you love me Come on Lord do you love me. You love me Peter you know I love you. Feed my sheep feed my sheep you failed Jesus he will love you he still loves you will he have your back he wasn't the one who kicked you out you were the one who fled just come back like the prodigal son when you stumbled and fell Jesus didn't wash his hands of you that was you washing your hands on him Come on now get your hand back and again. This is the church's finest hour because we have a savior whose name is Jesus there is something going on behind the scene. Talked about this just theory as you can see them but there they are. Behind the Veil you can see them but the angels that they are behind the veil you can see them but the demons again Jews are with you God is with you spirit of God is with you very Where are you going to be a going to make a stand stand for Jesus are you waking up to spiritual realities no old friend if I knew how to choose the right words I'd choose him if I knew how to express this thing with the right path I do it but old. And I'm praying that the Holy Spirit is speaking to you and saying young man madam you haven't been taking this seriously and I want you to take it seriously because I want you to be saved and I want you to be safe and I want to keep you I want to do that and I want you to use you I want rather to use you I want to feel you up so that you shine so that somebody sees Jesus in you I want to do that in you and you say maybe God says I can do it in you just a couple of weeks ago with the. Story in Glendale California at the Forest Lawn Cemetery security was out there were going around doing the rounds at 5 am they passed a big beautiful statue it's a replica of the day that you've seen the David 17 feet tall maybe you've been there the original is in Florence Italy I said to myself Who wants to look at a 17 foot tall statue of a naked man I see oh get in the see it move on look at something else who wants to see that I got in there and. Gazed upon that statue beautifully carved by Michelangelo. Something. Long Cemetery in Glendale California that David was not standing it was all on the ground in pieces. It had been made of the same quality same grade as the original it was a mosque piece and now it was a mosque the piece that are being shattered. Why in the would a statue you think in some. Of the. Vandals pushed it of oh no that's not what happened you know what happened was this that because of the way the thing is being created because of the pressure on the on the skinny little. The relatively thin legs. Microfractures appeared in those legs some microfracture that's a fracture that you can't see. But it's there anyway you can see them but they had their like the great controversy. You can see it playing out at least you can see behind the veil but there are things taking place back there that you must not be able to see fractures microfractures they developed down that went. On for and you and me both with riddled with microfractures But there's somebody who can make us whole. Terminal but there's someone who can make us live we're endangered species but there's somebody can save us we. Are positive but the virus of sin but there's someone who can save us who is it that's Jesus come on as he's saving you will he said you pray with me we're going to pray do you want that celebration I know you do we're praying our Father save us We're riddled with microfractures covered in June we are broken battered bruised incomplete save us your strength is made perfect in weakness weakness. We know you love us so keep us and save us please we pray in Jesus' name amen and God bless you.
