The abomination of desolation is described by Jesus in Matthew 24:15 as that which should be read and understood by the students of Bible prophecy and of the book of Daniel. While it's immediate fulfilment relates to the destruction of Jerusalem, there is a fascinating end-time application that has long fascinated Seventh-day Adventists. We will dig deeper into this topic in this presentation.

Greetings and welcome again shoe our last day of events explained series here on Adi Evers My name is Norman McNulty and it's a privilege to be with you again for perch you in our series And today we're addressing the abomination of desolation before we get into the presentation I'm going to address a few questions that came in and for those of you who have questions feel free to send them into the e-mail that you see here on the screen contact Adi Everest or g. we got a number of good questions this week and I just want to go through a couple of them right now from Julie I asked the question thank you for the series My question is how do we know that we are not one of the Full of her genes also how do we make sure that our faith and relationship with Christ is strong and it's a great question how do we know whether or not one of the foolish virgins the parable of Matthew $25.00 makes it clear that the foolish virgins don't have the oil in their vessels with their lamps the oil represents the Holy Spirit the fruits of the spirit and diligence 522 and 23 are a description of the Holy Spirit being in your life and that's the fruits of a converted heart and how can we have a strong relationship with Christ is to spend time with him every day in Bible study in prayer communicating with him and that's how the fruits of the spirit grow in our lives and so that's a great question and we definitely want to make sure that we are wise enough will wish. Another question comes in from Tommy she wants to know what it means to prophesied again and is this the message of the judgment of the Living Will the phrase prophesied again is found in Revelation chapter and verse 11 which comes immediately after what we see to be the great disappointment and this message of prophesies and again is actually the call to give the 3rd angel's message of the mill Rights gave the 1st and the 2nd angels and all such up until $1844.00 but the 30 angels most of which includes the commandments of God in the faith of Jesus is given after reaching $44.00 so when does the judgment of the living begin as best as I can tell it's when the national Sunday lobby ends that's when the church is tested that's when the fruits are seen and then probation closes sometime after the national Sunday law begins there are a few other questions that came in. One of them that I thought was also important to discuss comes from Stan and he wants to know on what basis do we conclude that the Midnight cries the same as the loud cry and this is a great question and it's worth mentioning as well you know Ellen White says and review and Herald August 1890 referring to the parable of the 10 virgins she says that this parable has been and will be fulfilled to the very letter now what she means by having already been fulfilled to the very letter is that the miller right movement they were a fulfillment of the parable of the 10 virgins and the midnight cry in their history took place when the date was set for October 22 1844 they believe that Jesus was coming on October 22 but that date was not very clearly until August of 844 specifically had a cam eating on August 12th a message given by Samuel Snow that was the midnight cry face of the mother. Movement for the parable bang fulfilled at the end of the very letter happens again at the end of the world with the 2nd Advent movement the 7th Day Adventist Church and the midnight cry in the parable of the end of the world is the loud cry when the latter rain is poured out and the church goes forth proclaiming the message behold the bridegroom come a few yet to meet him that correlates with a lot of premises your revelation 18 which as we saw last week concludes with a message that her sins of reached into heaven Babylon's in the region of Heaven God hath remembered her iniquities and I want it says in last events page 108 the Babylon since reach heaven when the law of God is made way by legislation and one other question came in that quarter questioning whether or not other incidents where God's law has been violated through legislation should constitute a fulfillment of that and it doesn't know whether laws that have been involved that have been passed that violates God's law for example even the law that allowed allows homosexuals to marry specifically meets what Revelation 18 is describing because the law that is in force nationally and then eventually internationally that changes Sabbath a Sunday is a sin that which it reaches all the way to heaven and is the fulfillment of the final events of Earth's history so great questions that have come in thank you for passing of them along and please keep them coming if I didn't respond to your question we may address them in later presentations based on the topic at hand and so one other thing and then we're going to have an opening prayer here I just want to remind you if you're interested in the top you know my books that I've written on Daniel practical living on the judgment are you can get a copy from around the publications now is a great time to be studying and to be sharing with others and so I want to remind you of that as well. I want to go ahead and. Have a word of prayer now as we get into the heart of our study for today and so let's just ask God to be with us as we study about the abomination of desolation so let's pray Father in heaven and we thank you for this opportunity to study and to learn and I just print a special way that you will guide us through the study on the Abomination of Desolation I pray that it would be very clear to all of us pray that my presentation will be clear I pray that the understanding would be clear for all those who are listening and I pray a letter that we would be ready when you come and so Chris in Jesus' name I'm not. Ok so. The Abomination of Desolation you know this is a topic that. Many in the church find to be very fascinating and it's it's an important topic because Jesus actually makes reference to it in Scripture and so when Jesus makes reference to it in Scripture we definitely want to study this as well and understand what he's talking about and so let's look at these 3 gospel accounts there's 3 times where Jesus addresses this concept and known as the abomination of desolation Matthew 24 verses 14 and 15 are Chapter 13 others 14 and in Luke Chapter 20 verses 20 and 21 if it's in these 3 gospels you know that it's important for us to study Jesus' addresses that he wants us to study and so we want to take a look at it now I want to go to Matthew chapter 24 and we're going to look at verses 14 and 15. And if you have your Bibles on you to to get them out and in turn with me to this important passage where Jesus speaking and again Matthew 24 has a chapter where Jesus describes the signs of His coming and of the end of the world and so Matthew $24.00 verse 14 he says and this in gospel of the kingdom shall be preached in all the world for a witness and all nations and then shall the end come then verse 15 when the therefore shall see the abomination of desolation spoken of by Daniel the prophet stand in the holy place who saw redefine let him understand then let them which be in Judea flee into the mountains so Jesus saying that the Gospel is going to go to the whole world and then the end will come and then he says when you see the abomination of desolation spoken of by Daniel the prophet stand in the holy places or reads let him understand. Then you need to flee Now the fact that Jesus tells us that you should go to the Book of Daniel read it and understand it tells us that we want to do that and so it's important for some we're going to go to Daniel here in just a few minutes that's not the only account we go to also to Mark Chapter 13 verse 14 this and some further information so in its Matthew 24 we see that the abomination of desolation is standing in the holy place and he says go to Daniel understand this further remarks 13 verse 14 here we read but when you shall see the abomination of the salacious spoken of by Daniel the prophet standing where it ought not to let him that read If understand then let them that be in Judea if we do the mountains so Matthew $24.00 the Abomination of Desolation a standing in the holy place where that mean and then a mark 13 verse 14 the abomination of desolation is standing where he ought not standing where he's not supposed to be. One last the Gospel account is in Luke Chapter 21 versus 20 and 21 and this makes things even clearer so notice what Jesus says here and when he shall see Jerusalem compasses with armies then know that the death of the lation thereof is the night then let them which are in Judea fleet of the mountains and let them which are in the midst of it depart and let not them that are in the countries into their into so Matthew 24. Abomination of Desolation is standing in the holy place Mark 13 abomination of desolation is standing where not aware it's not supposed to be but in Luke $21.00 we see that it's the Roman army service rounding Jerusalem and so. Will specifically it's mentioned as army surrounding Jerusalem and we're going to see that this is the Roman army this is the initial fulfillment and remember Jesus mixes the signs of His coming out of the end of the world with the destruction of Jerusalem so you have this an initial application or an interpretation for these passages that relate to the struction of Jerusalem but we're also going to see how this applies to the end of the world. Now l m y it weighs in on this concept of the abomination of desolation and tells us further give us some helpful clarity on this topic this is a great controversy page 25 Jesus declared to the listening to cycles the judgments that were to fall upon a pos they did Israel and especially the richer richer Beate of Jews then Jance that would come upon them further rejection and crucifixion of the Messiah unmistakable signs would proceed the awful climax the dreaded hour would come suddenly and swiftly and the Savior warned his followers when the therefore shall see the abomination of desolation spoken of by Daniel the prophet stand in the holy place who so read a flood and understand then let them which would be in Judea flee into the mountains and she's quoting Matthew $24.00 in the $21.00 in that paragraph and then she goes on to say when the idolatrous standards of the Romans should be set up in the holy ground which extended some furlongs outside the city walls then the followers of Christ were to find safety and fly when when the warning signs should be seen those who would escape must make no delay throughout the land of Judea as well as in Jerusalem itself the signal for flight must be a mediately obeyed so notice the holy place is a territory of ground outside the city wall of Jerusalem that extended of. A set of furlongs or a certain amount of space beyond the city walls so that's where the the Roman army ought not to stand it's come passing Jerusalem and then she concludes by saying he who chanced to be upon the housetop must not go down into a south even to save his most valued treasures those who were working in the fields or vineyards must not take time to return for the outer garment laid aside while they should be toiling in the heat of the day they must not hesitate a moment with they be involved in the general destruction so l m i makes it very clear that when the Romans surrounded Jerusalem in the Territory considered to be holy. Territory holy space this is not the holy place of the sanctuary this has confused some people this is a territory of space outside of the city of Jerusalem. Is the abomination of desolation now just some further play or 82 the abomination of desolation here. The abomination that is taking place here is that you have idolatrous Romans standards. From a pagan nation being placed in what is considered sacred ground so an abomination is to unite the sacred with the profane the sacred with the idolatrous the sacred with the common That's the abomination and after the abomination of uniting the sacred with the profane the desolation would follow and in this case the abomination again is the idolatrous Roman standards of the Roman army you have pagan idols on their standards that they're placing in the holy ground outside of the city of Jerusalem that's an abomination and after the abomination takes place where they can pass around the city of Jerusalem and they're standing where they are not to be then the desolation of the destruction of Jerusalem takes place so that's what the abomination of desolation means in the immediate application of Matthew $24.00 Mark 13 and Luke $21.00 and we're going to see that there is an end time application from what Jesus says here so let's move along here so interesting Liam why already makes it clear that the reason why there was that there was the abomination of desolation which does the later to destroy the city of Jerusalem is because the G.'s rejected the Messiah and now you know sometimes I hear people say that the Jews actually never had a close a probation that that they continue to be the Israel of God and we simply join them after Jesus went to heaven that is not true their probation closed as. As a nation and 34 a d. and the execution of the clothes of the probation took place when the city of Jerusalem was destroyed and the Jews can certainly be saved but they as a nation are not the chosen of people of God any further crew the Christian Church is the Israel of God from the time of the closer preparation for the Jews and 34 a.d. all the way until the 2nd coming now Daniel 924327 actually describes the abomination of desolation and it's done so feel logically and perfectly in connection with the rejection of the Messiah and so you see the rejection of the Messiah at the end of the 70 weeks and as a result of the rejection of the Messiah that you then get the abomination of desolation that Daniel 924th. You see very clearly. The prophecy of the 70 weeks where Christ would come and there was that it created restore and build Jerusalem in verse $25.00 but then in verses $26.27 you have part a and part b. the 1st part of $26.27 talks about messiah how he will be cut off and he would confirm the covenant with many for one week which is the last week of the 70 weeks which we understand the 70 weeks were 490 years and Jesus came his ministry be again in the last of those 490 years the last 7 years of the 490 and he was cut off in the midst of that waxed week 3 and a half years into the last of the 70 weeks as a result of that in part b. of verses 26 and 27 it's as the people of the prince that shall come shall destroy the city that's Jerusalem and the sanctuary that's that simple and the end there shall be with a flood and under the end of the war desolations are determined others the desolation portion of the abomination and then in the 2nd part of verse $27.00 it says in the end for the overspreading of abominations so there is the abomination you have does the lation in verse $26.00 you have abomination of verse 27 for the overspreading of abominations he shall make it does that even under the consummation of that to determine shall be poured upon the desolate or that's what the word means at the end of verse $27.00 now the people of the prince that shall come there shall destroy the city this is been discussed in Daniel Chapter 8 Now if you're not well versed on Daniel 8 and Daniel mine and how the king a fierce countenance and Daniel 8 connects to the people of the prince that shall come and shall destroy the city in the century study up on the I'm not going to take a lot of time on this but the point is this Daniel 8 you have a king a fierce accountants understanding dark sentences who would come and destroy God's people and that is from the true. Says. Moses gives to the nation of Israel there is the blessings on the curses and Deuteronomy 20 and in Deuteronomy $28.00 Moses tells prophetically that if you don't follow the covenant the curses will be poured out and a king a few years counts understanding dark sentences will come and destroy you as a people Daniel 8 1st identifies that King a few years counts prophetically which makes Daniel very upset and then Chapter 9 we see that after the 70 weeks of probationary time that are given to the Jewish people that Prince or that thing would come and destroy the city and the sanctuary as a judgment for the Jews rejecting the Messiah this is the abomination of desolation the nation of Rome came and destroyed the Jewish nation 7080 they wanted to preserve the Jewish temple Titus didn't want to destroy the simple but nothing could stop the destruction when that time came if you read the history so it's an interesting fascinating history. That's the primary application of the Abomination of Desolation but there is more to the story Ellen White we read the statement last week but it's worth reading again in context with the abomination of desolation l m y makes the statement until someone is Volume 5 pages 464-4658 is no time now for God's people to be fixing their affections or laying up their treasure in the world the time is not far distant when like the early disciples we shall be forced to seek a refuge in desolate and solitary places as the sea of Jerusalem by the Roman armies was the signal for flight should the Judean Christians so the assumption of power on the part of our nation and the decree and force in the papal Sabbath will be a warning to us a notice there is an end time application the end time application is that. The National. Sunday law is our abomination of desolation Now let's keep reading here it will then me time to leave the large cities preparatory to leaving the smaller ones for retired homes and secluded places among the mountains and now instead of seeking expensive dwellings here we should be preparing to move to a better country even a heavenly instead of spending our means and self gratification we should be studying to economize every challenge of God should be used to His glory in giving the warning to the world and certainly when you see what's happening in the world around us if you're investing in this world with your money you're investing in the wrong place this world is going to fall apart very rapidly at the rate it's going and we want to make sure that we're laying up treasure in heaven but again the initial fulfillment of the Abomination of Desolation is the Roman army surrounding Jerusalem placing its idolatrous thing in the holy place and in the territory outside of Jerusalem and then it destroyed the city that's the abomination of desolation the end time application for God's people is the national Sunday law now what's the abomination of desolation with the nationals on the well here's the Abomination the abomination is that a law is passed that proclaims a common secular day to be sacred thoughts and abomination trying to unite that which is common with that which is sacred there's the abomination and when church and state unite to create a law that unites the sacred with the profane which is there is a law that says we should worship gob of people have been told to worship God on a day that is common or secular that's the abomination then we see the desolation that follows is that those who don't go along with the law will be persecuted and threatened with death that's the abomination of desolation so that's what we're looking. Now interestingly. There is more than one place in the Book of Daniel that describes the abomination of desolation and some people get confused by this but the abomination of desolation in Daniel 1131 which is the 2nd place that we find the abomination of desolation mentioned by name this is not. The Roman army surrounding Jerusalem this is a different historical fulfillment and we're not doing all of Daniel 11 right now in this presentation but basically if you study this out. The abomination of desolation and Daniel 1131 is the union of church and state 1st with Clovis using his army to give assistance to the papacy and then in 530 those that are create from just any and 1st given a 533 but in 4th and 538 when Belisarius drives the last barbaric tribe out of the city of Rome and that decree by just any and allowed the bishop of Rome to have control over the states and now the church has control over the state that's an abomination and when that abomination was formed in 538 in its completeness that led to then desolation throughout the trial 160 years where there is the persecution of the saints who don't go along with the abomination of the union of church and state and this sets the stage for the final events because Ellen White says a manuscript released as well and 13 page 394 that scenes similar Chub What's the scribe in Daniel 1130 to 36 which includes this abomination of desolation were church and state unite she says seeing similar to those the scribes in these words will take place so Daniel 9 shows that the 1st abomination of desolation was the Jewish nation being destroyed by the pagan Roman Empire. But then Daniel 11 then sets the stage for the end of the world by showing that the abomination of desolation for the end of time starts when church and state unite with the Roman Catholic Church they hour and we know that the Roman Catholic Church that power receives the deadly one in 798 where it no longer has power over the state it's still a church entity but it lost power over the state but at the end of the world when the deadly want to see healed church and state united again in the abomination of desolation will be an issue again at the end of the world so we want to be. Watching how that all plays out so I want to take you back to Matthew 24 verses 14 and 15 as we look at this concept of the Ivana nation of desolation and there's a key connection here 1st 14 says this gospel of the kingdom shall be preached in all the world for a witness and all nations and then the end shall come and then Jesus mentions the abomination of desolation. So the application for the end of the world is that. God's people are going to take the Gospel to the world for a witness is not simply point to be a declaration there is going to be seen a demonstration and that final demonstration of the Gospel is Revelation 18 more an angel comes down from heaven having great power great authority in the earth is a lie and or of the lumen aided with its glory where the gospel is not only preached but it is the demonstrated and what's been lacking in the church till this point is that too many times when we see a great evangelist or a great preacher we exalt the messenger rather than the message and rather than Christ and we have a tendency to take credit for the work that Christ is trying to do through us but when the loud cry message goes on the earth is light with the glory of God's character nobody's going to be caring about taking credit for the power of the Gospel that seen in our lives and that's been proclaimed And so the Gospel is going to go to the world for a witness now yes the 7th heaven as we've done a good job over the last 150 years of being of Angelus that can taking the gospel to the 4 corners of the earth and that's part of the fulfillment of that prophecy but the final fulfillment is the witness component where it is demonstrated not simply proclaim and then the end will come and then we see that simultaneously to the giving of the lot of prime message you have the Sunday law taking place and so. That's an important component of Matthew 24 verses 14 and 15 that there is a demonstration or a witness of the Gospel in addition to the proclamation of the gospel. And now. Let's look at a couple of key points so how does the abomination of desolation repeat itself. At the end of the world Ellen Wyatt again mentions in manuscript release volume 13 page 394 that just as you see the abomination of desolation and Daniel 1131 she says scenes similar will take place at the end of time now and she doesn't say identical Some people get carried away and try to make an identical repetition between those verses that similar but not identical with the pattern so at the end of the world you see in Daniel 1140 that the king of the North receives a deadly wound from the king of the south I believe that 78 at the beginning of verse 40 and then in verse 41 the King of the north makes a comeback against the atheism that delivered the deadly one and he enters into the glorious land now in Daniel 11 when ever the king of the north of the King of the South enter into a territory it's for the purpose of conquest the glorious land is the territory of God's people have already mentioned earlier in the Book of Daniel the Jewish nation cease to be God's chosen people in 3480 so please don't tell me that at the end of the world the territory of God's People us the literal Israel it's not it's John's denominated people who are followers of God And so the papacy enters into the territory of God's people for the purpose of conquering them and the way the papacy tries to conquer God's people is through a law that will force God's people to sever their allegiance with the God of heaven which is the law of God including the 4th commandment which is the Sabbath by following a manmade law that shows that the papacy has power over. The Church and the state and that's what we call the mark of the beast this is the renewal of the abomination of desolation and verse 41 now next week we're going to talk about the 4 stages of the Sunday law which you can see and Daniel 114-1245 I'm not going to go through the various stages I'm just letting you know that verse 41 is a repetition of history from Daniel 1131 where now you see the abomination of desolation again and when we get to the end of Daniel 11 you see what we would call the final siege of Jerusalem because there is a mass of its tidings from the east in the north that infuriates the king of the north and he goes forth with great fury to destroying utterly to make away many and then a verse 45 he plants the tabernacles of us palace but Tshwane the seas and the glorious holy mountain yet he shall come to his and that she'll help him now the glorious Holy Mountain is Mount Zion on the north side of Jerusalem and the king of the North is planting the tabernacles of his palace between the seas that we believe this would be the Mediterranean Sea And then there's also that's to the west there's the Dead Sea to the east and the tabernacle represents the place of worship the palace represents political authority so you're not uniting your uniting political authority with a place of worship that's the union of church and state in the context of the papacy and going forth to destroy and utterly to make away money that's a death of the tree so by the time you get to the end of Daniel love and you have a death decree. And this death the tree is associated with a son a law that if you don't go along with this Sunday law that 1st was enacted when the king of the North enters into the glorious land by the time he comes out of the glorious Holy Mountain which is Jerusalem which is where God. Are found he. Threatens a death the tree and it's the time that Michael stands up to deliver his people and you know will have some time to break down in a love in a little bit further but I'll say this please don't tell me that Michael stands up to deliver his people based on a Middle East regional conflict now Michael is tending up to deliver his people because the remnant is under siege by the end time table power who has and acted to death the tree against God's people who keep the commandments of God and have the testimony of Jesus Christ so the final siege of Jerusalem you can see and Daniel 1145 it's the final abomination of desolation as it reaches a climax now. Just to wrap things up here some people have great interest especially when they see that the abomination of desolation is again mention of Daniel trowels verse 12 specifically. As there is a connection with mention of Daniel 1211 and the nurse 12 as the time prophecy but people are cheeriest as to what the 1290 in the 1335 day prophecies are referring to in Daniel Chapter 12 so you have the Nation of does elation mentioned in your mind verses 26 and 27 you have the of omniscient of desolation mentioned again and Daniel 1131 and then you have the abomination of desolation mentioned again in Daniel Chapter 12 1st 11 and what you see here Dennis reverses 11 and 12 says from the time that the daily shall be taken away and the abomination that make of the salutes that official be a 1290 days was a to see that way different coming to the 1305 and 30 days now. I've heard some say this is the climax of the Book of Daniel and you can't tell me that the climax of the Book of Daniel is talking about historical events from 5 the way well in fact actually. It's not really focusing on 5 away but if you say that the climax of Daniel 12 is 5 away that would be like saying the climax of Daniel 814 is 457 b.c. it's not it's 844 and these prophecies in Daniel Chapter 12 are referring back to what Daniel 1131 mentions and that is that in 50 wait there's this abomination of desolation where Clovis of the Franks unites his secular army with the Roman Church in order to give them political power in Western Europe that's the beginning of that's 5 ways so that's the beginning of your 12901335 day prophecies and so. Some believe however that these are literal time prophecies that start at the National Sunday law they say that the word for days in this chapter is the Hebrew word yom which they say is used for literal days however they don't take into account the this is the same word in numbers 1434 and as a here for over 6 that we have to store if we is the 7th Day Adventist to show that a day who was a year in Bible prophecy Furthermore when you get serve Revelation Chapter $135.00 which talks about a 42 month prophecy which is the 1260 years the word for months in Revelation 13 years 5 is the same that's used for the literal months throughout the New Testament and so don't be confused by some of these fanciful interpretations that try to make the end of Daniel 12 and to react with Haitian of time prophecies Unfortunately I've seen people use these prophecies to create dates for a national Sunday law so if there was a video a couple years ago that was viewed by. Over 200000 people that try to set a date from when the pope came and spoke to a joint session of Congress to count 1260 literal days from that point to when a national Sunday law would start and then you go 30 days beyond from the National Sunday law to a duff the Korean then $45.00 days. Beyond that to when Jesus comes back but that's not an appropriate way to interpret these prophecies. Elem Why make some very clear statements that these people. Overlook this is early writings pages 74 and 75 time has not been a test since 844 and ever and it will never again be a test the Lord has shown me that the message of the 3rd angel must go and be proclaimed to the scattered children of the Lord but it must not be hung on time I saw that some were getting a false excitement arising from preaching time but the 3rd angel's message is stronger than time can be I saw that this message can stand on its own foundation and needs not time to strengthen and that it will go in mighty power and do its work and will be cut short in the righteousness of those who are reapplying the 1260 the 12th the 90 in the 1335 to literal prophecies beyond their historical fulfillment are false teachers and I'm saying and you can send them questions all you want but that's a false teaching that those prophecies are reapplied Ellen why has more to say referring to 1335 a prophecy This is from Letter 2850 Ellen White says we told him Brother age of some of his there are errors in the past that the 1335 days were ended the numerous other errors of his so there was a brother in the past that was teaching the $1335.00 days of another application she says now that's an error. And then the statement last they haven't page 36 our position has been one of waiting and watching with no time proclamation to enter being between the close of the prophetic periods and 844 and the time of our Lord's 2nd coming. So the truth about these is that these prophecies from Daniel 121112 are referring back to Daniel 1131 the starting point is 5 a way this takes you. From the 1290 years takes you from 5 away to 1798 the 335 years takes you from 5 away to 843 the significance of this is that after 700 $98.00 God's people are no longer scattered and for $843.00 there is a blessing for those who came to that point that those who would be part of the Miller I mean that would gain a special blessing and from 844 to the 2nd coming there are no time prophecies we have a message that is based on character preparation not a date setting and so my final a feel as of this God has raised up the 2nd Advent movement to take the Gospel to the world not simply as a proclamation but as a demonstration as a witness and then the end will come and when God has a people who take the gospel of the world as a witness to him he cannot trust his the Latter Rain power then we will see the abomination of desolation known as the national Sunday law and I have news for you guys not waiting on the pope. God's not waiting for the president and the pope to form a conspiracy to create a national Sunday law that will be the trigger that lets us know that Jesus here but God is waiting for a people who can give the gospel as a witness with the fruits of the Spirit as a demonstration of what Christ character is like so that the national Sunday law can then be allowed to me forward and so we want to be among the people who God uses to be filled with the spirit we want to be the wise virgins with the extra oil in our vessels which is our life with the churches are in our mind in our soul we want to have that extra oil of the fruits of the Spirit in our lives so that we can reflect Christ and we can be prepared when the final crisis hits and frowns on as I look around us and as I see what's happening this whole crisis right now isn't necessarily settling down we've had the pandemic and now we're having civil unrest and there are certainly some. Some just causes that are being protested but civil unrest is definitely taking place and we need to keep an eye on things prophetically because if the world continues the way it is I just don't know how much longer we can go on and the fact that all of this is happening suggests to me that we as God's people are getting closer and closer to being ready to receive the seal of the Living God So if your heart's not right with all the today make sure that you surrender all place on the altar and that you're ready for him to come and I'm looking forward to next week study we're going to go through the 4 stages of the National Sunday law it doesn't just hit all at once and it's over in a couple of days there is a progression to it and we're going to see that and so make sure you come back next week for that before I wrap up so I do want to offer a word of person let's pray Father in heaven we thank you for showing us the truth about the abomination of desolation help us to understand this with clarity may we be ready to flee at a moment's notice and may we be ready for your see him coming. And I pray that as we continue through the series that things will be made clearer and clearer as we continue to develop these thoughts a thank you and be with us maybe be found faithful I pray this in Jesus' name and.
