Greetings again and welcome to part 6 in our last day of then it's explained pod cast series today we are going to be talking about the latter rain and the loud cry and I'm very happy to be sharing on this particular topic today it's such an important topic for us as God's people before we get into that we are going to cover some of our questions and again some good questions are coming in and there are so many that we will have a session at the end just to deal with as many questions as possible there's a couple of points that I want to cover today before we get into the presentation I continue to get questions about stage chew of the Sunday a lot of we had the presentation about the 4 stages of the Sunday law and more than one person has expressed concern about what would be wrong about worshipping on Sunday in addition to Sabbath which is what stage she is white if you'll recall. Stage she is one Sunday worship becomes compulsory when you are required to honor Sunday I'm not saying that going to church on Sunday now is receiving the mark of the beast if you go to church on Sunday now to visit a friend or something of that nature that's not receiving the mark of the beast the mark of the beast is when Sunday worship is enforced and you are required by a wa to be in attendance to honor that day if you go along with it at that point that is receiving the mark of the beast so I want to be clear on that yes I want makes the statement that we can hold services on Sundays but that's prior chief Sunday worship being in forth a remember that Ellen White statement about holding services on Sunday is prior to Sunday worship being enforced once it becomes an forth and you are. Are required by law to honor that day that is the mark of the beast and you need to be very clear on that and that's when we as God's people will give the warning message there was another question that came and about the 7 heads of Revelation 17 I'd mentioned briefly that the 5th had was the papacy of the 6th it was the United States of America in the 7th or the kings of the earth the 10 horns which represent one Kingdom at the end. And I didn't mention the 1st foreheads which is a good point all go ahead and mention them now and if you look in Daniel and Revelation the 1st kingdom of prophetic significance from Daniel 2 to the end of the world is the kingdom about Alonso The 1st set is Babylon the 2nd has me to Persia the 3rd head is Greece the 4th head is pagan Roman the 5th head is papal room the 6th as the United States of America the 7th head of the one world government and the 8th which is of the 7 is the papacy after the resurrection after the deadly wound is healed so to speak and so that's my position on the 7 heads good question and that again there have been other questions that have come and there was one question in particular about a person asking what do I do you when I have a family member who refuses to leave the city and I know that they need to move to the country you know that can be a complicated situation again you want to make sure that you follow something in a responsible manner and don't just make a quick snapshot decision that get someone out of the city with no clear plan you want to have a clear plan that the person can be able to support themselves and to be in a safe environment where they can support themselves and that you can support them if necessary and so what God will lead pray for them continue to share counsel with them and see if they're willing to talk to spiritual people that would encourage them to make that move if I'm not willing to listen the sometimes they'll listen to somebody else so keep that in mind great questions will address more next week and again will if your question hasn't been answered I will do my best to get you in a special session at the end one other thing before we get into the presentation again I want to remind you of my book on Daniel Daniel practical living in the judgment hour with everything that's happening in the world right now now would be a great time to be studying prophecy if you're not familiar with the prophecies and if you know someone that would benefit from studying these things feel for. To get a copy for them you can get this from run up publications dot com So this time I am going to offer a word of prayer and ask the Lord to guide us through our presentation today so let's by our heads as we start this presentation Father in heaven we thank you for what you have been doing through this series of meetings thank you that you are reminding us of the necessity of preparation for the last days more and I pray that we would be found ready and faithful that we would be ready for the outpouring of the Latter Rain and for the giving of the Law Christ our guide me now as we go through this presentation I pray this in Jesus' name amen so. I want to. Go ahead and get into our presentation for today which is the latter rain in the loud cry you know the Latter Rain is what we as 7th Day Adventists have been waiting for in the giving of the loud cry this is the experience that we as a church are looking for and so what is it going to take for the latter rain to be poured out what is it going to Cheik press to be able to give a loud cry and so I want to start off by reading. A couple of statements. And we're going to start with the early rain experience in Acts chapter achieved Russa's one through 4 so we're starting here in Scripture Acts chapter 2. Beginning in verse one and this is a familiar experience of the apostles after Jesus ascended to heaven. And starting a verse one of those and when the day after the cost was fully come they were all with want to court in $1.00 place and suddenly there came a sound from heaven as of a rushing my. The wind and it filled all the house where they were sitting and there appeared under them cloven tongues like as the fire and it sat upon each of them and they were all filled with the Holy Ghost and begin to speak with other tongues as the Spirit gave them a difference and this is a description of the early reign experience when the Apostles the disciples were filled with the Holy Spirit now White says and testimonies on a page $21.00 the outpouring of the spirit in the days of the apostles was the former rain and Glorious was the result but the latter rain will be more abundant now and when you think about what happened to the Apostles they took the gospel to the then world in their generation through the outpouring of the Holy Spirit God's people in the last days will do the same thing and the law to reign will be even more abundant. Now the early rain experience it was not just for the apostles it's also the experience we are to have this is the experience of conversion on a daily basis and that is the statement from testimonies to ministers and gospel workers on pages $57.50 at no point in our experience can we dispense with the assistance of that which enables us to make the 1st start the blessings received under the former rain are needful to us to the end so we need that former rain early rain experience and then it says as we see God for the Holy Spirit it will work in us meekness humbleness of mind a conscious dependence upon God for the perfecting the outer rain so we need the early rain experience which is the fruits of the spirit having the Holy Spirit in our hearts and in our lives so that we can be developed for the receiving of the Latter Rain now I want to take you to a few key Bible passages that talkin about what we as God's people should be doing and how we should be preparing for the outpouring of the law to reign in these verses are probably familiar to many of you that you write a chapter 10 verse one and this 1st makes it very clear don't expect the latter rain to be poured out upon you if you are asking for it that or a chance verse one says ascii of the Lord rain in the time of the latter rain so the Lord shall make bright clouds and give them showers of rain to everyone grass in the field so God a saying here if you want to receive the Latter Rain ask for the this rain ask for the law to reign in your lives and remember this is the experience that we're going to need to face the final crisis of Earth's history and so that's why we're talking about the latter ran on a lot of credit is because how are we going to stand through this crisis how are we going to be ready and able to hand. The momentous events that bring this world history to an end and the only way to receive the outpouring of the Holy Spirit so we need to be praying for the outpouring of the Latter Rain now the question could be asked are there reasons perhaps why the outer rain has not been poured out of Jeremiah chapter 3 this is a tough passage to stomach but it's a passage that each one of us needs to listen to as God's people Jeremiah chapter 3 verses 133 notice what the prophet Jeremiah says Now this was speaking to the the nation the Jewish nation that the kingdom of Judah just before they were taken into captivity in Babylon and well might this be said to modern Israel as Babylon is trying to overtake God's people just before the end of the world noticed this passage Jeremiah 31 of 3 they say if a man put away his wife and she go from him and become another man's shall he return under her shall not that land be greatly polluted but that has plagued the her it with many lovers yet which turn again to me say if it were got a saying you know if a man put his wife away and she goes to another man you don't go back to that woman that's polluted territory and God is saying that that's what you've been like to me you've been like. The one issue has played the harlot with many of the others but I'll take you back anyway is what God is saying but then notice this verse to lift up fine eyes into the high places and see where that has not been line with in the ways has the sad for them as the Arabian in the wilderness and now has polluted the land with by whoredoms them with a witness got a saying to his people he sang to us. Look at the high places in your lives which is where the idols were found in the Times of all but the high places in our lives they look at the television. Programs that you've been watching look at the things that you've been watching on the internet look at how you spend your time look at your career look at your wife's half and you think that you're on your way to heaven you've actually put God into the background and made this world your idol in the things of this world your idol and yet which are and to me says the Lord then verse 3 therefore so because you have been playing with the harlotry in the idolatry of this modern world notice what God says in verse 3 therefore the showers have been with Holden and there has been no latter rain. And I have a horse forehead fuses to be ashame you know Jesus is the way to see in church you need the garment of my righteousness to cover the shame of your nakedness and yet the church refuses to be ashamed or the latest see in church lukewarm but we think we're rich and increased with goods and have need of nothing and we refuse to be ashamed by our spiritual nakedness thinking about idolatry is Ok leading up to the borders of Canaan because everybody in the church is purchase a paving and I Dollar Tree as well and got a saying the latter rain has been withheld because of your idolatry but he is saying richer and under me pray for rain and the time of the Latter Rain and if you repent and turn from your idols God will prove or out his Latter Rain blessing upon each one of us that's an amazing passage it's not a sermon that you'll hear preached in 7th administrators very often because most 7th day out in this would be deeply offended if they were told they were playing the part of the heart or that they had a horse forehead that's just the way it is we would be deeply offended yet that's what got a saying there is he saying the latter rain has been withheld because you're playing the part of a harlot you're supposed to be my bride but instead you've been a harlot or for each of them so they idols of this world and that's not easy to take but God in His love is telling us that's who we are and if we will receive that message and repent and obey God and receive purification from him we can receive the outpouring of the Latter Rain. Now. Acceptor 3 vs 1020 ad some further. Information that is helpful force Acts Chapter 3 verses 19 and 20 this tells us the timing of the Latter Rain in the progression of last they haven't accepted 319 and 20 repent either for Sophie repentance is a key part of this message repent either for and be converted so the church has been unconverted it's been connected to idolatry and playing the part of the harlot and goddesses repent either for him be converted that your sins may be blotted out. When the times of refreshing shock come from the presence of the Lord. Now that's the outpouring of the law to rain and then it says and he shall send Jesus Christ which before was preached in to us the 2nd coming so here's the sequence of events we as a church have played the part of a harlot and so God says repent you therefore and be converted we need conversion and then what happens repent you therefore be converted that your sins may be blotted out now the blotting out of son takes place in the most holy place of the heavenly sanctuary at the final a time that when probation closes so repent you therefore be converted actually probation closes just shortly after that just to be precise but the blotting out of sin takes place with the outpouring of the law to reign repent you know for and be converted that your sins may be blotted out when the times are refreshing shall come from the presence of the word so that's the outpouring of the Latter Rain and then the the blotting out assent of the outpouring of the law to reign are synonymous and then probation closes shortly after that and then Jesus comes that's the sequence of events and so then Jesus comes so what we need is to repent that's a message that is often missing in churches the day people are told to put away their jewelry or their worldliness or their movies or there is favorite forms of entertainment we want to be given messages where we are patted on the back for showing up to church and living an average Laodicean lukewarm lifestyle and that we're still on our way to heaven another message is repent either for and be converted that your sins may be blotted out when the time is a refreshing shall come from the presence of the Lord for so when the law to reign us poured out. God's people have their sins blotted out and then shortly after that probation closes and Jesus comes one last Bible verse that we need to mention and this is Acts chapter fivers 30 t. and this shows the condition upon which God will give the Holy Spirit in the outpouring of the Latter Rain and the early rain experience and it's $530.00 Ci which says and we are His witnesses of these things and so is also the Holy Ghost whom God has given to them that obey him notice this the Holy Spirit is given to those who obey God Now you can earn your salvation we understand and we understand that very clearly. But God doesn't pour out the Holy Spirit upon disobedient people that's also very clear were saved by grace through faith and that faith produces obedience in our lives and God pours out the Holy Spirit upon those who will bathe him so don't think that a disobedient wife a disobedient wife style open rebellion choose to God's promises and commands will allow you to receive the outpouring of the Latter Rain Scripture is very clear that the Holy Spirit is given to those who obey So let's look at. A few further things here so we're going to look at the law to rain experience and we're going to see that the Latter Rain is connected to a ripened harvest at the end of the world other early rain in the Jewish economy the early rain was the rain that came after the harvest or the seeds were initially planted that allowed the seeds to Germany and to come up out of the ground and at the end of the harvest cycle just before the harvest ripen there would be another season of rain and the latter rain that would lead to the ripening of the harvest and so God uses that as an illustration for us to understand how the world will come to an end and in James Chapter 5 or $67.00 and $8.00 we see this concept more clearly. James Chapter 5 verses $7.00 and $8.00 and here Scripture says be patient therefore brother and under the coming of the Lord behold the husbandman this is Speaking of Christ waited for the precious fruit of the earth and a half long patients for until he received the early and latter rain be also patients that wish your hearts for the coming of the Lord draws nice a notice of this that in Christ waiting for the harvest he's waiting for the early rain which he received at 10 a cost prophetically speaking and he's also waiting for the ladder in and he's having a long patience for the precious fruit of the earth now lest she think that the fruits been ripen for a long time and God's just trying to add more and more and more that's not what the Bible actually teaches mark 420 and 29 says for the earth and bring it forth through oversells firsts the blade then the ear after that the 4 corn in the year but when the fruit is brought forth now in the marginal reading it says when the fruit is ripe and. Immediately he put us in the sickle because the harvest is come so as soon as there's a ripened harvest the Harvester a mediately puts in the circle and Jesus saying I'm having long patience for my harvest and so I receive the latter rain in the latter rain has not been poured out because there's a few things number one God's people by and large are not praying for the outpouring of the Latter Rain and one of the reasons we're not praying for the outpouring of a lot of rain is because many of us have enjoyed the idols of this world and were consent to be lukewarm and we refuse to be ashamed of our spiritual nakedness because most of the church is like this and so Jesus standing at the door knocking saying let me come in and we refuse to let him come in because we're Ok to say he's my savior but we don't want him to be Lord so we're not praying for the outpouring of the latter in a Zechariah $101.00 tells us that he and then Jeremiah 3 verses $13.00 sees that it was 3133 says that the Latter Rain has been withheld because we've played the part of the heart of it towards God and he still thing returned to me and then x. 3 says that we need to repent and be converted so we as a church are lacking conversion but when we have a repentant church in a converted church then the Times a refreshing will come from the presence of the Lord and the blotting out of sin will take place so the in the latter rain can be poured out the loud cry can be given probation will close and Jesus will come back so when the fruit is right and then immediately the sickle will be thrust in by Christ the great Harvester Now let's go back to our slides here so notice the statement from Ellen why talking about the free what does this through look like what does the fruits of the Holy Spirit going to look like in the church well why makes it clear and she's quoting scripture circulations 5 makes a bundle a clear and I white just adds onto it this is Christ out it wasn't paged. It's the $69.00 she's quoting Galatians 5 notice what it says the fruit of the Spirit is love joy peace longsuffering gentleness goodness faith meekness temperance that's what a Spirit filled life looks like now sometimes people get wrapped up in the Sidel like oh I'm going to have to stop sending and I'm going to have to stop doing all these bad things well actually that's shrew but you're putting it in the wrong framework it's actually Christ comes into your life and now you have His love you have his joy you have his peace his patience his gentleness his goodness it's faith is meekness and it's temperance and those fruits and drive out the bad fruits from your life and so rather than being this grumpy illegal list that grouch which some people are in the church you're a happy joyful Christian full of the joy of the Lord and you don't feel perfect because the closer you come to the Lord the more you know what you're like when you're disconnected from him but that's the change that takes place in your life and only goes on to say this through can never perish but will produce after its kind of harvest the new eternal life and then notice this when the fruit is brought forth a mediately he put it in the circle because the harvest this come that's the fruit that the church is lacking Christ is waiting with longing desire for the manifestation of himself in his church when the character of crush will be perfectly reproduced in his people then he will come to claim them as his own and that character is the scribe in the fruits of the Spirit then she goes on to say it is the privilege of every Christian not only to look for but to hasten the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ were all who profess his name bearing fruit to his glory how quickly the whole world would be sent in with the seed of the Gospel quickly the last great harvest would be ripened and Christ would come to gather the precious grains and out of this when we as a people develop the fruits of the Spirit in our hearts and our lives when we surrender our lives the Jesus of the Holy Spirit can be. Seen in our lives so that that fruit is produced very quickly the whole world will be sun with the seed of the Gospel when Christ will come to gather the precious grain and we will be much more effective than our evangelists that efforts. Now here's a few more statements that tok about. The connection between the early rain and then the latter rain. Testimonies volume 8 page $21.00 the outpouring of the spirit in the days of the apostles was the former rain and Glorious was the result with a lot of rain will be more abundant and we saw this really is that the latter rain is going to be more abundant and the notice actually the Apostles page $55.00 near the close of Earth harvest the special this though of spiritual grace is promised to prepare the church for the coming of the Son of Man this out for ing of the Spirit is a liken it to the falling of the ladder rain so this is near the close of his service and we're going to see the latter in the notice the statement from great controversy page 464 before the final visitations of God's judgments upon the earth there will be among the people of the Lord such a revival of primitive godliness as has not been witnessed since August all the times the spirit and power of God will be poured out upon his children and let me tell you something here the future of adding to them is not a declension and a worldliness and being more and more like the worldly churches around us and turning the church into a rock club with dancing and drums and just making the church in chew this modern world the culture that we think will convert the world when in reality we as a church are being converted into the world that's not the future of Adam to them the future of Adventism is a revival of primitive gobbling us that has not been witnessed since apis all of times and that will take place when God has a people who have allowed Christ the come in so that we will have the fruits of the Spirit as we live obedient wise so that we can receive the outpouring of the law to rain that's our future it's not to be more like the world is to be like Jesus. And so let's keep looking here at some of the law to reign is the experience that we need and the law to reign leads to the loud cry. Now notice the statement from earlier writings page $86.00 at the time the latter rain or refreshing from the presence of the Lord will come to give power to the loud voice of the 3rd angel and prepare the Saints to stand in the period when the 7 last plagues shall be poured out so notice this the law to reign is what gives power choose a loud cry or the loud voice of the 13th will so we can give that loud cry of the 3rd angel with the out without the outpouring of the Latter Rain that's what we need we need the outpouring of the Holy Spirit and so I notice the early writings page he 71 I heard those close with the armor speak forth the truth with a great power it had effect I ask would have made this great change an angel answered It is the latter rain the refreshing from the presence of the war the loud cry of the 3rd angel now Ellen White earlier in that passage talks about how the church was in a way a to see and say but in other words when laid a see a let's Christ come in we receive the outpouring of the law to rain so that we can give a loud cry of the 13 joules message so looking at scripture the loud cry and we've talked about the latter rain we see that is the outpouring of the Spirit is the outpouring of the Holy Spirit without measures of the fruits of the Spirit will be seen in our lives completely and will be we will be empowered so now we look at the outcry in Revelation 18 receives one through 5 and onward is a clear description of the latter rain where we see very clearly the Bible says and after these things I thought other angel come down from heaven having great power great authority and the earth was lightened or eliminated with His glory and he cried mightily with a strong voice saying Babylon the Great is fallen us fallen has become the habitation of devils and the hold of everything else spirit in a cage of every unclean and hateful bird for all nations have drunk of the wine of the wrath of her fornication and the kings of the earth and. Committed fornication with her and the merchants of the earth are waxed rich through the abundance of her delicacies and I heard another voice from heaven saying come out of her my people that you being up are takers of her sins and that you receive not of her plagues for her sins have reached under heaven and God hath remembered her iniquities and then the message goes on from there but that's the main thrust of the message in the 1st 5 verses so this is a message that comes from heaven and has great power it has great authority the earth is a lemonade with its glory this is the character of God that a seen throughout the world this is not simply a proclamation of the End Time Message it's a demonstration of the care if you're of God as the in time message and this is the experience that all of us want to be part of. Now as well in wise as in testimonies volume 6 page 19 says a powerful statement describing this loud cry message the message of Christ righteousness is the sound from one end of the earth to the other to prepare the way of the Lord this is the glory of God which closes the work of the 3rd angel so that glory of God is the character of got and again this righteousness of Christ is going to sound from one end of the earth to the other you know it's one thing to preach the righteousness of Christ it's another thing to be a demonstration of the righteousness of Christ and $11.00 of the reasons that we fail as a church is that we don't actually have the righteousness of Christ that's the way to see an experience where were naked spiritually but we think we're rich and we think we have the righteousness of Christ when we really do not when we truly have the righteousness of Christ and were filled with the spirits the were filled with the fruits of the Spirit then the world will see who Jesus really is through God the last the people and that message needs to sound from one end of the earth to the other. Another statement as Volume 7 a Bible Commentary page 984 says as the 3rd message swells to a loud cry and as great power and glory attend the closing word the faithful people of God will partake of that glory it is the law to reign which revives and strengthens them. To pass through the time of trouble so it will be the law to rain that revives and strengthens us as a people to pass through the time of trouble and it will empower us to give this food message with a loud cry that will achieve in the closing words. Volume 7 of the testimonies page 17 as the 3rd angel's message swells into a loud cry to great power and glory will attendants proclamation the faces of God's people will shine with the white of heaven. What an amazing promise is that our faces will shine with a wide of heaven as we give this message and again you know it's one of the reasons why the lot of rain hasn't been poured out yes because we as a people have been full of pride thinking that we have something to bring to the table and God isn't looking for people who think they have something to bring to the table he is looking for people who are emptied of self that can be completely spirit filled to demonstrate what Christ character is truly why. And I've already talked about this already but I see ministries competing speakers competing and we think we're going to be part of the loud cry experience when we can't even get along here on this earth and when we're trying to step over each other to get to the top and to be the most prominent or well known ministry right now Come on friends that's not going to finish the work it's going to be being emptied of self devoid of self and filled with Christ spirit that will allow the work to be finished. Now a few more statements this is testimonies going 5 page to 50 Ci the power which stirred the people so my daily in the 844 movement will again be revealed the 3rd angel's message will go forth not an whisper turns but with a loud voice and you know again sometimes I hear people saying we don't need to be preaching or in time message in our churches we just need to give safe messages that will make visitors feel comfortable friends we're supposed to be giving this message with a wild voice not an whisper towns why are we so ashamed of the very message that guy. God has given us to give to the world and then early writings page he 70 I saw that this musses will close with power and strength far exceeding the midnight cry and of course the midnight cry experience was the miller right movement leading up to October 20 t.v. 144 the experience of which Helen wise doesn't reveal in her logs 1990 that the experience of the 10 virgins that has been fulfilled is of a letter and it will be again what happened in the Miller right movement will be repeated to the very letter through the 2nd Advent may have been just before Jesus comes back and the midnight cry experience is the loud cry experience for the last days. Because of some more famous letter 861009 100 the message of the angel following the 3rd is now to be given to all parts of the world it is to be the harvest message in the whole earth will be lighted with the glory of God That's the outcry messages to be the harvest message that will whiten the earth with God's glory your character and testimonies volume 6 page 401 when the storm of persecution really breaks upon us then will the mustard of the 3rd angel swell to a loud cry and the whole earth will be a white man with the glory of the board you know we talked about a little time of trouble last week and it's during the little time of trouble well the persecution breaks upon the world that this loud cry message will swell on my in the earth with the glory of God So while the little time of troubles is happening we're going to be filled with the outpouring of the Holy Spirit and with holy boldness we're going to be giving this message with great power and glory not for the glory of us but for the glory of God And so rather than being afraid of the trouble around us we're going to give the message fearlessly after the message has done its work Ellen why does say that will wonder should we have said the said what we said the way we said of them will say no we have nothing to be ashamed of we would give it again the way we gave it. Great conversely 611612 I was. The statement the angel a few nights in the proclamation of the 3rd angel's message is to lighten the whole earth with his glory a work of worldwide extent an unwanted or or power that's unlocking unwanted power is here for told servants of God where there's faces lighted up and shining with holy consecration will hasten from place to place to proclaim the message from heaven by thousands of voices all over the years the warning will be given. I one of the promise of the servants of God with their faces lighted up and shining with holy consecration will hasten from place to place to proclaim the message from heaven and it says by thousands of voices all over the earth the warning will be given so wherever you are living maybe you're watching from the Philippines or from Trinidad and Tobago or from Africa or from England or somewhere in the United States or Canada earth or Australia or somewhere else in the world you are going to be used by God in your corner of the years to give this last message we're not going to rely on one or 2 preachers it's going to be thousands of voices all over the years not wanted she creatures. Now these are some interesting statements because not everybody in the 7th Day Adventist Church is going to be receptive to this loud cry message and you even see this happening in the church today this 1st famous from the review in Herald extra December $23890.00 there is the be in the 7th Day Adventist Church is a wonderful manifestation of the power of God but it will not move upon those who have not humble themselves before the Lord and open the door of the heart by confession and repentance in the manifestation of that power which lightens the earth with the glory of God they will see only something which in their blindness they think dangerous something which will arouse their fears and they will brace themselves to resist it because the Lord does not work according to their ideas and expectations they will oppose the work why they say should we not know the Spirit of God when we have been in the works so many years Listen friends just because you've been in the work so many years does not mean that you will recognize the voice of the Spirit of God If you have not humbled yourself I mean I've even seen books published recently that attack the very message that will prepare God's people to stand through the the end of the world and then notice review and herald May 278-0913 joules message will not be comprehended the White Witch World white in the earth with its glory will be called a false light by those who refuse to walk in it as in its advancing glory and so as the message of Ed dances in its glory there will be many who will say there is no light in this we can't have victory Everson we can't be made by Jesus before he comes back this is fun out of them this is heresy don't accept this version of Adam to them when in reality this is been the version of Adam to them that God has given us to us from the very beginning but unfortunately there's been Babylonian influences that have come into adding to them that have dumbed down the Gospel to make us think that we can have victory Everson and so there are those in the church who are rejecting the lie that is needed for this time that will prepare us to receive the op. Ring of a lot of rain so that we can receive the seal of God and hear the loud cry message don't be part of the group that resists the message for this time. Testimonies on 5 pages 80 and 82 this is an important statement as well and a lot solemn work few great men will be engaged Did you see that few great men will be engaged and God will work a work in our day that but few anticipate he will raise up and exalt among us those who are taught rather by the unction of his spirit than by the outward training of scientific institutions these facilities are not to be despised or condemned they are ordained of God but they can furnish only the exterior qualifications God will manifest that he is not dependent on learned self-important mortals and thus that this is so important I look I'm someone who happens to have a medical degree from one led to university which is one of our higher institutions of learning on the 7th day out in this church and I was as these institutions are not to be despised But listen just because I have an empty next to my name doesn't make me more qualified to talk about this message than anybody else now it's true that having some training and the study of scripture can be very helpful for explaining and giving the message Bud I've seen situations for example where there was somewhere somewhere in North America. Where there was. An outstanding of Vangelis she was wanting many souls to the cause and despite the fact his conference President want to ordain him because he didn't have a master's and a vanity from the seminary and then there were pastors in that conference who weren't having any baptisms but they were ordained because they had the degree Now again there's nothing wrong with the degree you can do a lot of good with that degree but if your degree isn't leading you to one soul's you didn't fulfill the purpose for which that degree was given to you for and so you know and I'll say this is world there is then the $2520.00 heresy running around that some of you may have heard about and someone that I know was talking to an individual who believed in that idea and they said hey you should listen to Norman McNulty He has a good explanation on this topic and there like others know what head was in a Norman McNulty He went to one of those higher institutions of learning so he's been influenced by a Jesuit way of thinking so I'm not going to listen to him so listen don't despise an institution just because it's an institution I want says we shouldn't despise those institutions on the other hand. Ellen while also says in the statement very clearly that few great men will be engaged in the last solemn work and that God will work in a way in our day that few anticipate So listen don't look to me don't look to any other speaker or someone that you enjoy following we're all human beings you should be allowed by the grace of God to study for yourself to see what scripture in the spirit of prophecy say and let the Holy Spirit bring conviction to you and he will use a year especially when that time comes thousands of voices throughout the world will be united to give the last message of warning to the world and so we're not to attend upon any one person any one school any one institution we're thankful for the blessings that they bestow upon the church but we don't rely upon them we rely upon the Holy Spirit as he fills those who humble themselves to be used by him. And so there was one other Steve slide that I wanted to mention here and this is how the loud cry it leads to the 2nd coming we already saw this earlier but I just want to mention this one last time as we bring this presentation to a close that the latter rain leads to the loud cry into the 2nd coming it were Peter's giving this sermon a kind of cuss but he's describing what's going to happen at the end of the World x $319.20 says repent you therefore and be converted there's the experience of repentance that your sins may be blotted out that happens at the end of the world in the cleansing of the sanctuary when the times are refreshing shall come from the presence of the Lord so when the sins of God's people are blotted out then the Holy Spirit is poured out in the latter rain experience of this happens in the parable of the 10 virgins when the midnight cries Given that's the loud cry that's the sun they lock spirits we saw that in our 1st presentation and the wise virgins who have the early rain experience they have the extra of what oil in their vessels with their lamps they now receive the outpouring of the Latter Rain to give a loud cry message and then a short time later the door closes as they go in with the bridegroom to the marriage and the door shuts that's the close of probation then Jesus comes after. Says and he shall send Jesus Christ which before was preached on to you and of course the law to reign leads to the ripening of the harvest and Revelation 14 is a description of the great harvest at the time with coming of Jesus and you see Christ sitting on a cloud and he has a sickle in the sand and he thrust it into the earth because the harvest of the earth is ripe so friends we have a special message for a special time at this time of Earth history we want to be ready for Jesus to come. Jesus is coming very soon. And he wants the poor of the Holy Spirit upon us in the form of the law to reign the Holy Spirit is given to those who obey Him to those who repent to those who turn away from the idols of this world and who return to Christ and who allow Jesus to come in he's as he's knocking on the door of our heart let's stop glorying in the shame of our nakedness as a church let's accept Christ and His righteousness for all that it truly is which in crude includes the fruits of the spirit it includes the character of Jesus and by grace through faith we can receive all of those blessings so that we will be fitted for the outpouring of the law to ransom that we can give a loud cry because I believe the Sunday was coming soon I believe the end is coming soon and we need to be prepared for that final crisis and we need to be fitted with the character of Jesus the face that time so let's be ready let's be faithful and may Jesus come see and so let's close now with a word of prayer Father in heaven and we thank you for being with us today I pray that we would be obedient that we would be surrendered that we would be repentant and that you would fill our lives with your spirit and that we would be prepared to receive the outpouring of the lottery and we know why it is made the statement that the Lateran may be from falling all around us and we may not even be aware of it the outpouring that may that not be our experience may we be the ones who receive that outpouring and may we be. And faithful when you come I pray this in Jesus' name and on thank you everyone next week we're going to focus on what events will be surrounding the death of the tree as that leads to the end of all things that we're going to what have the death the creed and again remember to send your questions to contact the audio verse the orgy blessings to you and we'll see you next week.
