Well come again Chief to the last day events explained My name is Norman McNulty and today we are in part 7 of our series on last day of unsent today we are going to be discussing the death of the tree and so I'm looking forward to going through that with you and as usual we have a few questions that we're going to address before we get into the heart of our presentation for today I want to thank you again for those of you who have been sending question than we've had some more good questions come in this week one of the questions that was asked which was a very good was. How do we know how long each stage of the Sunday law is going to last for example how long is the little time of trouble going to last how long is the Jacobs time of trouble going to last how long are the 7 last plagues going to last thoughts a very good question and the honest answer is we don't have a specific period of time from inspiration the best answer that I can give you is from Revelation 17 when we get the 7th head which is after the deadly one is healed in Revelation 13 it says that the kings of the earth will reign for want to hour with the beast in the word in the Greek or that phrase in the Greek refers to a very short indefinite period of time is not a time prophecy so we shouldn't expect for this final crisis of Earth's history to go on for a really long time but there will be enough to say time for these events to develop and so it's not going to be 2 weeks it is meant to be many years either so we don't know exactly for sure but it's going to be a short period of time. And another really good question that came in was how do I know for sure if I'm ready for Jesus to come and. You know that's a question that I believe each one of us knows that deep down in our heart we know if we are fully surrendered to Jesus and the way to know that you're ready for Jesus to come is if you're 100 percent surrendered to him if every issue in your life you have surrendered to the Lord as I wanted says it's not the occasional good deed or a misdeed but if the general trend of the life that tells us which direction we're headed in now people have used that quote to say well the general trend of my life. It's pretty good and yet every 15 minutes they're stumbling into something they know they shouldn't be doing so bottom line is it's total surrender that's how we know and our heart we know if we've surrendered at the foot of the cross. With everything in our heart and everything in our life to Jesus Christ we're not holding anything back and if you can say honestly to yourself and to God God I fed it all out on the line I've surrendered everything in my life to you there's nothing in my life that I'm holding back from me and then you can have confidence that you're ready to meet Jesus in the clouds I think one of the reasons why people are scared of last day events and of the Final Crisis in the time of trouble is that a lot of us are holding things back Word 99 percent surrendered but there's that one thing and elements of the Guinness that's the Christ that one sin persistently cherished will eventually neutralize all the power of the gospel so we want to have everything surrendered by the grace of God He's made it possible for us to do so with his sacrifice for us on the cross and so thank you for those questions and again if you have further questions some of the men to contact me over orgy Obviously there are some questions that have come in that I haven't been able to get to but we are going to have a special session at the end where we go through all the questions that have come in and I want to thank you again for the questions that have been coming and I also want to remind you about my book Daniel practical living in the judgment now as we're going through these prophetic messages as we're going through of last day of vents you'll find to much of what we're talking about in this version now is a great time to be studying and sharing on prophecy and you might have the book but if this would be a great gift for your friends or family but people have an opportunity to study these things that are happening right now so now I'm going to move along into our presentation on the death of the tree this is part 7 in our 10 part series before we have a question and answers and probably proto Loven And so as we get into this. In Taishan I'm going to ask the Lord to be with us as we go through this presentation today and we want the Holy Spirit to guide each one of us as we go through this topic so let's lift part of this reprieve Father in heaven we thank you for this opportunity to continue to learn more about last day events and as we study about the creative day I pray that it would inspire us with confidence knowing that you were there to protect us and to deliver us may we have faith to be sustained for the crisis the lies ahead of us and so be with me now as I speak and as I share I pray in Jesus' name and on so the topic on the title for a day today is the death of the tree and you can see the picture that I have used for the background for this title is the picture of a guillotine and that of course was made famous in the French Revolution the French Revolution happened at the end of the 12 and 60 years when there was a period of time for 3 and a half years known as the reign of terror when God was abolished atheism reigned supreme and tens of thousands of French citizens were put to death by the guillotine and its place 20 to 40000 were put to death and. We don't know exactly. What will happen to God's people in the last days. That. As far as how persecution will take place but we do know that as we talked about earlier presentations there will be martyrs for the face and there's obviously more sophisticated ways that people will be martyrs for the faith but we want to be prepared and ready to stand and to be faithful no matter what type of. Instruments are used by the enemy to. Try to intimidate us of the God's people and so let's go ahead and walk. Some passages of Scripture the look at what's happening and what will happen at the end of time if you have your Bibles on will you turn to Revelation Chapter 13 starting in verse 11 and this is a description of the 2nd Beast of Revelation 13 which is of course Protestant America in verse 11 of Revelation 13 and I beheld another beast coming up out of the earth and he had 2 horns like a lamb and he spake as a dragon we've talked about this before the humans representing civil and religious liberty so America starts off as a Christian like nation it's a like Christ like a lamb but then he speaks as a dragon and when he speaks as a dragon This is when the Sunday law takes place the nation speaks through laws speaking as a dragon remember the dragon gave his power seat in authority to the 1st beast to Revelation 13 and the 1st beast to Revelation 13 has the mouth of a lion which is Babylon and that beast had a mouth speaking great things for 1260 years and when the 2nd he speaks like a dragon the way the 1st piece that this is the Sunday law and you see the races trove 13 and 14 you see that there are miracles he exercises all the power of the 1st beast the beast who is the they want to was healed 1st 13 he makes fire come down from heaven on the earth from the side of men and he just see us those who are on the earth know the fire coming down from heaven on the earth in the sight of men and certainly done to try to convince the on looking world that God is on the side of this apostate Protestant power and I believe that the fire coming down from heaven on the earth on the side of man is over to not only for 1st one Satan person it's Christ and we get into the death of 3 specifically which we saw earlier in our series of meetings which was part of 3. Of the series on last they have been the death to create is stage 4 of the Sunday law. And. In verse 15 we see. As he had power to give life into the image of the beast that the image of the beast should both speak and cause that as many as would not worship the end of the beast should be killed so there is the death of the tree so the United States of America Protestant America is the one who gives power to give wife and to the image of the beast the image of the beast the images that which represents the 1st beast which is the papacy that image is the union of church and state and then we see the mark of the beast and verse 16 he causes all both small and great rich and poor free and bond to receive a mark on the right hand or on their forehead and that no man might buy or sell save or Except he that had the mark or the name of the beast or the number of his name and so the mark of the beast this is inforced Sunday worship and and for Sunday worship of course starts even in stage 2 of the 4 stages of the Sunday law by the time we get to stage 4 we have a death the tree that he should Cuz as many that would not worship damage of the beast should be killed and so the Revelation 17 also makes mention of those for say This is the beast that you saw was and is not and shall send out of the bottomless pit and go into production and they that dwell in the earth show wonder whose names were not written in the book of life from the foundation of the world when they heard the beast that wasn't is not and yet is now that's the papacy of the beast was is not it shall send and we get to verse 11. This beast that wasn't is not even he is the 8th and as of the 7 and goes on to preditions verse 12 says. The 10 corns which you saw are 10 kings which have received no kingdom as yet but receive power as kings one hour with the beast these have one mind and shall give their power and strength and. The beast the shall make war with the lamb on the lamb shall overcome them for he has a lot of more than King of Kings and they have better with him are called and chosen and faithful and I believe that when the kings of the earth unite with the resurrected papacy to make war with the lamb I believe that is the death decree the final order not fulfillment of making more with the lamb is the death of the creed and so we see this in the Korean Scripture especially explicitly in Revelations Chapter 13. Verse 15 explicitly we see the death the tree mentioned it's implied in Revelation 17 verse 14 on it's also employed in a couple of other passages of Scripture that we're going to look at. But the death the tree is a reaction to the loud cry message now we studied that woud cry message under the power of the law to rain last week and the louder rain empowers a loud cry message to go over the entire world and it says the Babylon the Great is fallen it's become the habitation of devils at the heart of every fell spirit to kill each of every unclean and hateful bird and so that's going to infuriate the papacy to be identified as the habitation of doubles and so this rather Rainer the outcry message is given by the covenant people God The new covenant people who are obedient and this fits with Revelation 1217 I remember last week we mentioned Acts 532 that the Holy Spirit is given to those who obey God and in Revelation 1217 as the dragon was RAAF with the woman and went to make war with the remnant of her seed which keep the commandments of God and have the testimony of Jesus Christ so it's a commandment keeping people who will be giving the loud cry message that will infuriate the papacy and I believe Revelation $1217.00 is also implying the death victory now you can certainly make an application to the time in which we live and now where you have God's remnant church you keep the commandments including the 7th day sabbath and they have the testimony of Jesus which is the spirit of prophecy and we believe that to be found in the writings of Ellen g. why and so you have a commandment keeping people who have the prophetic gift of the 7th administration so we say the dragon is and raged with this church and he's making war and that's true but the final fulfillment of him making war with the remnant says he's Rother with a war with a woman and went to make war with the remnant of her seed I believe will ultimately be seen in the death of Korea where he did try to destroy God's last the church and we see this also in Daniel of and again some of you may not be as familiar with the end of Daniel 11 as it relates to end time events but I included a study that further. But in Daniel 1141 through 45 we see the King of the north as the papacy enters into the glorious land and I believe this represents the national Sunday law where the papacy enters into the territory of the church and when he enters into the territory the church is for the purpose of conquering God's true church is the God's people and his church and not through a national Sunday law now verse 44 after the papacy seemingly is conquering the whole world as tidings out of east and out of the North troubled him left the loud cry message and therefore he shall go forth with great fury to destroy an utterly to make away many so again the reaction to the loud cry is the death agree because the papacy here receives this power see an authority from Satan the dragon goes forth with great fury utterly to destroy and make a way many about the death of the tree which we've talked about there you see of therefore he shall go forth to destroy and utterly to make away many I believe again that parallels Revelation 1217 The dragon was a rough with a woman and went to make more with the remnant of her seed which keep the commandments of God and have the testimony of Jesus Christ there you see a death the tree and then Daniel 1145 you have right after it says he shall go forth to destroy you not only to make a way many 1st 45 years and he shall plant the tabernacles of his palace between the season the glorious holy mountain yet he shall come to his in and shall hope in the sea represents people and that the people of this world. And so the entire world is uniting with the papacy the king of the north in death the tree against God's people who are found in the glorious Holy Mountain which is symbolizing mountain Zion and so you can see those the death of the tree at the end of Daniel Loven as well and so you have again Daniel 11 we've talked about this a little bit but there's the stages of the Sunday law where you start off with the king of the North entering into the glorious land those are the beginning stages of the Sunday law and as you progress through Daniel 11 it talks about how you will have power over the treasures of gold and of silver and over all the precious things of Egypt that's where no man can buy or sell him and finally as a response to the loud cry message he goes forth with fury to destroy and utterly to make away many because the latter rain power of the loud cry is unstoppable and it's preventing Satan who has given us piracy and authority to the papacy from gaining control of the whole world and so he will be enraged or infuriated by the remnant of God's covenant people who keep the commandments of God and of the testimony of Jesus Christ he will be enraged by the who are giving such a message and by the way I've probably mentioned this last week but that's worth mentioning again don't expect to be part of the Latter Rain experience and to be part of the loud cry experience if you don't believe that God through His grace and strength can give you the power to obey and to write his law into your heart and mind and don't expect to be part of the law to reign in a lot prior experience if you reject the writings of Ellen g. white god the last day people who are part of this loud cry message will keep the commandments of God and have the testimony of Jesus Christ which is the spirit of prophecy and they will be the ones we will be the ones who will be subjected to this death the tree. Now in response to the death victory Daniel shutter traverse once. And at that time show Michael stand up the great prince which standeth for the children a life people and there should be a time of trouble such as never was since there was a nation even of the same time and at that time by people shall be delivered every one that shall be found written in the book Michael is standing up not in response to a Middle East conflict with Turkey or the eastern question or the Crimean conflict or some issue in Jerusalem in response to radical Islam or whatever it may be Michael standing up in response to the death of the tree in which God's people are surrounded by the king of the north and the whole world to see where the tabernacle of the palace being planted between the season the glorious Holy Mountain God's remnant are found in the glorious Holy Mountain and the papacy is that he is going forth of destroying the 2 way to make their way many meaning that he's trying to destroy God's people so Michael stands up in response to the death of Michael with Christ and so when you have a death the tree. Michael stands up and this correlates with the Revelation chapter 20 Chu verse 11 as well so when Michael stands up we hear the words in Revelation chapter 22 for Cirebon which I will read and I encourage you to follow along in your bible it words as he that is unjust these are the words coming from the most holy place of the saying sure in heaven he that is unjust let him be unjust still and he watches for if he let him be filthy still and he that is righteous let him be righteous still and he that is holy let him be holy still when the death the tree is given Michael stands up in response to the tree and probation closes for the world at that point all cases have been decided those who are righteous will remain righteous and those who are wicked will remain of the wicked and this is the close of probation and notice the statement from Ellen why this is review and herald November 19th $1008.00 from article a she wrote 2 articles on that day for the review and Herald and this is the 1st one article way out of this they met wonderful events are soon to open before the world the end of all things as at hand the time of trouble is about to come upon the people of God then it does that the decree will go forth forbidding those who keep the Sabbath the Lord to by or so and threatening them with punishment and even death so here is the death the tree and even death if they do not observe the 1st day of the week as the Sabbath so there will be a death victory if you do not observe the 1st day of the week as the Sabbath Now notice the next paragraph paragraph 13 of review and her of November 1908 and at that time shall Michael send up the great prince which standeth for the children of my people and there shall be a time of trouble such as never was since there was a nation even to the same time and at that time my people shall be delivered every one that shall be found written in the book by this we see the amp. Orton's of having our names written in the book of life all whose names are registered there will be delivered from Satan's power and Christ will command that their filthy garments be removed and that they be clothed with his righteousness and they shall be mine see if a lot of in that day when I make up my jewels that I will spare them as a man spirit his own son the servant him now notice the there is a lot of beautiful things in here but I want you to pay attention to this and the previous paragraph we see that there is the death of the tree for those who will keep the Sabbath and do not observe the 1st day of the week that leads to the close or probation where I Why then says And at that time shall Michael stand up so when I see Daniel 1144 and 45 I see a death of the tree for God's faithful 7 Fayad in a simple leavers who will not observe the 1st day of the week as the Sabbath and they continue to worship on the true 7th day Sabbath they are given the loud cry message saying come out of here my people Sunday worship is the mark of the beast come out don't receive it for plagues this is infuriates the papacy now they institute a death the creed they plant the tabernacles of their policy between the sea and the glorious holy mountain this is the death the tree and. In response to that Michael stands up so Michael stands up not to some Middle East regional conflict and then 11 he stands up to a death a tree against God's people and that's where Daniel 11 is the scribing and that's very clear in these statements from Ellen why are very clear notice also. As I've mentioned this the death the tree is in Daniel 1144 and 45 This leads to the close of probation and Michael standing up in Daniel's 12 verse one so we need to be clear on that now does the statement from Greg Conover See page 6 o 4 fearful is the issue to which the world is to be brought the powers of earth uniting to war against the commandments of God with the creator of all both small and great rich and poor free him by conform to the customs of the church by the observance of the false Sabbath all he refused compliance will be visited with civil penalties and it will finally be declared that they are deserving of death on the other hand the law of God and join in the Creator's rest day demands obedience and threatens wrath against all who transfer as its precepts were the issue this clearly brought before him whoever shall trample upon God's law to be a human an act that receives the mark of the beast he accepts the sign of allegiance to their power which he chooses to obey instead of the warning from heaven as if any man worship the beast and his image and receive his mark in us forehead or in a sand the same shall drink of the wine of the wrath of God which is poured out without mixture into the cup of his indignation so you can see in these 2 paragraphs that those 2 don't go along with this law it will eventually be declared to be deserving of death but the flipside is the you worship the beast and his image will drink 3rd row of the wine of the wrath of God which is poured out without mixture so those who receive the mark of the beast initially thinking that they are doing so to save themselves will eventually find them receiving the outpouring of the 4 wrath of God. And we want to be faithful to the Lord we love them and we're not going to go along with any man made of laws and again from a human standpoint we have with and us this natural mechanism of self preservation. And. We do whatever we can to preserve life and to avoid that which could cause us to lose our lives and so everything at the end of the world is going to be going against our natural human reaction like if we can't buy if we can't sell if we can't support our family if we can't sustain our life every fiber of our being if we're disconnected from the Lord is going to say go along compromise save yourself don't allow yourself to to lose your or your existence over something that seems so arbitrary and yet. As we face and if by the grace of God we will remain faithful because as Revelation 1211 so they overcame him that is the devil by the blood of the Lanham by the word of their testimony and they loved not their lives under the earth and so God faithful people at the end of the world will not one of their lives under the earth we will be faithful even one faced with a death victory and the loss of everything that we have. Noticed this very kind of risky 635. When the protection of human law shall be withdrawn from those who are of the law of God they will be in different lands a simultaneous movement for their destruction at the time appointed and in the dictionary it draws near the people will conspire to root out the hated it it will be determined to strike in one night a decisive blow which utterly silenced the voice of dissent and reproof the people of God Some are imprisoned souls some hidden and solemn to the solitary rich treats in the forests and the mountain still plead for divine protection while in every quarter companies of armed men urged on by hosts of Evil Angels are preparing for the work of death it is now in the hour of most extremity that the God of Israel will interpose for the deliverance of his chosen that we're going to talk about the deliverance of God's people as we come towards the end of the series but you will see that. When there is a death the Creed there will be a time that is said to destroy God's people much as in the days of Esther when a decree was made that set a date for the destruction of God's people the Jews at the end of the world when there is a death victory. There will be a date for the destruction of God's people and of course we know that God's people will be delivered but it's going to be a trying time for the people of God. And then we see with shots of triumph this is the continued great conversely $635.00 with shouts of triumph and jeer and Emperor cation throngs of evil men are about to rush upon their prey when low a dense the blackness deeper than the darkness of the night falls upon the earth then I rainbow shining with the glory from the throne of God spans the heavens and seems to encircle each crane company the angry multitudes are suddenly arrested their mocking cries and die away the objects the other murderous rage of for get on with fearful forebodings they gaze upon the symbol of God's covenant and longed to be shielded from its overpowering brightness of course the good news is God's people will be delivered so let's look at the chronology of the tree you have a death the Korean won the death the creek comes this is one probation closes after we have the death the Korean probation closes and this is one of the 7 last plagues began to fall in this is want to begins to be come clear who the righteous are who the wicked are who have been faithful to the Lord and who have compromised who received the mark of the beast who received the seal of God prose we can have some idea even before them based on who is being Spirit filled and giving the last message versus those who are falling away and joining with Sunday worship the 7 last plagues following that's want to becomes very clear to has the mark of the beast and those who would have the seal of God It's also during the 7 last flags. Jacob's time of trouble begins this is a trying time for God's people they have gone from. Facing martyrdom during the little time of trouble being able to buy are so cheap to the mental and spiritual anguish of knowing that probation is closed and wondering if they if we are truly ready to meet Jesus in the clouds and God's people will be delivered at the end of Jacob's time of trouble at the end of the 7 last plagues and we're going to talk about that in greater detail next week but this is the chronology of what happens with the death to create on testimonies of all in 5 page $213.00 we read when this time of trouble comes every case is the sided there is no longer probation no longer mercy for the impenitent the seal of the Living God is upon its people this small room not unable to defend themselves in the deadly conflict with the powers of earth that are Marshall by the dragon host make God their defense the decree has been passed by the highest earthly if they are already that they show worship the beast and receive his mark to under pain of persecution and if so when the death of 3 comes there is no longer probation there is no longer mercy for the end penitent of the seal of the Living God is upon God's people and so that statement makes that very fitting the notice this from early writings pages 36 and $37.00 I thought of the 4 angels would hold the 4 ones until Jesus work was done in the sanctuary and then will come the 7 last plagues these plagues and rage the way that against the righteous they thought that we had brought the judgments of God upon them and the fake it to rid the earth of us the plagues would then be stated to create want to Forth to slay the Saints which cause them to cry day and night for deliverance and this was the time of Jacob's trouble so we can see that. The the wicked will blame God the judgments upon the righteous and. The judgments that have come upon the earth will be blamed upon the righteous and this will cause or ultimately the death of the tree to be given. So from the death the tree we see that Jacob's time of trouble begins we see to Jacob son a trouble in Danish up to 12 years one we saw the death of 3 and then 1144 and 45 and again Jacob's time of trouble happens after the death the tree is given and this is where we're going to look at in detail the coming weeks. Being prepared for Jacob's time of trouble is of the greatest importance for each one of us. It's not enough to know the sequence of last day events it's not enough to know the chronology it's not enough to know that the different stages of the Sunday law and when the little time of trouble begins when Jacob's time of trouble begins where the death victory fits in this where the 7 last plagues for in this we need to have spiritual preparation and God is giving us that time now listen I mean we haven't even had the little time of trouble we are in a time of perplexity in this world and here in America and throughout the world with the pandemic threat of that with the civil unrest that has followed and you know it's a trying time and this is a great time as God's people to allow. This moment in time of perplexity choose to. Become closer to the Lord and to allow these trials to remove the impurities from your lives God is giving the son time in His mercy to be prepared for what is going to become an overwhelming surprise that strikes this world and the way this world is going back to happen at any time I'm not making any predictions on the setting any dates but God is giving us clear warning signs that his coming and they are in that Jesus is coming soon and we want to be found faithful and ready so next week we're going to go through. The description of Jacob's time of trouble what it means to live through that time what it will be like what we can expect and it's something that we all need to be ready for and so. As we bring this presentation to a close I just want to offer a word of prayer and asked the Lord to continue to be with us and losses so let's pray Father thank You that we know that even though a death victory is coming we can have the most confidence that you are going to deliver us from that death victory We pray Lord that you would strengthen us to have the character that is needed to face the final crisis may we not be found lacking like the foolish virgins may we be wise with that extra oil in our vessels whether lamps even now so that when the Final Crisis says we will go forth to give a loud cry under the power of the law to reign and when the death victory is given we will be found faithful even then and that we will not compromise no matter what happens to be ready for Jacob Simon trouble and as we study that next week may we be prepared and ready and so I just thank you for your blessings and for giving us this time and I pray this in Jesus' name him on cell c. and x. week we will discuss Jacob's time of trouble invite your friends share this series with them and I'll see you next week thank you and God bless.
