Father in Heaven, thank you so much for this time. I thank you a lot again that we have the opportunity to study together. And I just want to pray that you please be with all of US that you guide US, that you'd lead US. And then more than anything else that you would speak to US that we would hear the voice of the Holy Spirit speaking clearly through, through and above the noise and Din of this Earth. That Lord, we might be able to discern your voice and your leading today. Please guide US now. Oh Lord. In Jesus' name. Amen. The abomination of desolation, less turn of I was to Matthew chapter $24.00. Matthew $24.00. Geezers is going through the last of the events. He's giving US a picture of what would happen to be famines and pestilences and earthquakes. Even our day to day is a picture, a microscope, a microcosm of what's going to take place at the end of time, but to a greater degree. This only is the Beginning of Sorrows, friends. It's going to get much worse. Are not a Doom and gloom person. People calmly present mystic and so on. But friends, the Bible paints a very clear picture about what is to come at the end of times. Let's turn our Bibles to Matthew 24 and verse 15. Jesus says, when Ye therefore shall see the abomination of desolation. Spoken of by Daniel, the prophet, stand in the Holy place. Who so readers, let him understand. It is here that Jesus introduces the topic of the abomination of desolation, and it's interesting that he says what whoever reads, let him understand yet many confused are confused today about this very topic and Jesus, he references Daniel, that's where we're going to be going in in a minute and a little while, but before we go there, we need to understand why it is so important for US to understand today. How does this Reference are a time? Let's continue reading in Matthew 24 line upon line. Remember Matthew 24 and now verse 16. When you see that woman, 8 and desolation standing in the Holy place, then in verse 16 it says, then let them which be in Judea, flee into the Mountains. Let him which is on the House top, not come down to take anything out of his House. Neither let him which is in the field return back to take his clothes. And woe unto them with that or with child that of them that give suck in those days. But pray Ye, that your flight be not in the winter, neither on the Sabbath day. Friends, when we study Matthew $24.00, what we are seeing is dual application. You've got to remember this deal application because when you go to the beginning of Matthew $24.00, the disciples come to Jesus and they were showing him the magnificence of the temple that was rebuilt. It wasn't as great as Solomon's temple, but it was still a beauty to behold. And yet Jesus shocked the disciples by saying one, not even one stone would be left on top of another, not even one stone. And then he says what? He was so shocked the disciples contemn and asked him When will these things be the destruction of the temple and of the end of the World? So what Jesus did in only his wisdom that he could do was as he spoke, he means all these 2 events together. And we are going to see its primary application and then its end time application to US today. But it was so urgent when you would see the abomination of desolation standing in the Holy place. You better get down from the roof. Don't even go back and see a House just run. If you're in the field, don't even go back to get your clothes just run. Do you see that the command was urgent, but it was dependent upon US understanding what the abomination of desolation would be. Let's turn our Bibles to Luke. Yes, we're going to go to Daniel eventually. Jesus is the one that tells US to, but Let's go to Luke Chapter 21. This is where we find the parallel verses to this. Luke 21, we also find it in Mark. But Luke 21, we want to specially look into what is the abomination of desolation. Here is those similar verses starting in verse 20. Luke 21 verse 20. And when Ye shall see Jerusalem compasses, with armies, then know that the desolation is not I. This is the abomination of desolation. How do we know? Verse 21? Then let them which are in Judea, flee to the Mountains and let them which are in the midst of it, depart out of it, and let not them that are in the countries enter there into for these be the days of vengeance. That all things which are written may be fulfilled, but will want to them that are with child and to them that give suck in those days. For there shall be great distress in the land and wrath upon this people. Friends, this is exactly the same description that is given in Matthew 2415 and onwards. Here in Luke 21. But what is this desolating power? What was the abomination of desolation? We found it back there in verse 20. When you shall see Jerusalem, come past a bout with armies. This was the desolating power that would come. And so round Jerusalem, and eventually destroy it. In around the 70. This was the Roman armies that would come and surround Jerusalem and destroy them. Look, I want to read to you from the pen of inspiration found here in great controversy. Page 25, paragraph 4, Great controversy. Page $25.00, paragraph 4. Jesus declared to the listening disciples, the judgments that were to fall upon the prostate Israel. And especially the retro beautiful engines that would come upon them for their rejection and crucifixion of the Messiah on mistake of all signs would precede the awful climax. The dreaded hour would come suddenly and swiftly, and the Savior warned his followers. When you shall see the nation of desolation, spoken of by Daniel, the prophet, stand in the Holy place, who so read it, let them understand, then let them which be in Judea, flee into the Mountains when the idolatrous standards of the Romans. This is the Roman armies should be set up in the Holy ground, which extended some furlongs outside the city walls. Then the followers of Christ. What's a find safety in flight. 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 immediately obeyed. He who chanced to be upon the Housetop must not go down into his House, even to save his most valued treasures. Those who were working in the vineyards of fields of in yards 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 lest they be involved in the general destruction. Friends we see very clearly who it was and we know from history and we see it even in the Bible in Luke. We already studied it. What was the abomination? It was the Roman armies that came and they surrounded Jerusalem and they were standing upon what the Jews considered Holy ground. It extended, I'm distance beyond the walls of Jerusalem. And so when they saw Saul, the Army standing there with their idolatrous standards, you know, they would hold flags and those banners that would represent their gods. They were coming in their pagan gods, and they would be standing on the Holy ground. That is what the Jews considered what abomination. And Jesus said, When you see this flee, wait a minute. If they were surrounded, How were they able to flee? Let's continue reading great controversy. Now we are over in Page 30, paragraph to look at this. Not one Christian perished in the destruction of Jerusalem. Christ had given his disciples warning and all who believed his words watched for the promised sign. When Ye shall see Jerusalem come past with armies, said Jesus, then know that the desolation there of is 9. Then let them, which are in Judea, flee to the Mountains, and let them which are in the midst of it, depart out after the Romans, under 7, s., who sestina US had surrounded the city, they on expectantly, abandon the seeds. When everything seemed favorable for an immediate attack, the besieged, despairing of successful resistance, were on the point of surrender. When the Roman general sestinas withdrew his forces without the least apparent reason. But God's merciful Providence was directing events for the good of his own people. The promised sign had been given to the waiting Christians, and now an opportunity was offered for all who would so obey the Saviors warning events were so overall that neither Jews nor Romans should, in the flight of the Christians, upon the retreat of The Jews sallying from Jerusalem pursued after his retiring Army, and while both forces were thus fully engaged, the Christians had an opportunity to leave the city. At this time, the country also had been cleared of enemies who might have endeavored to intercept them. At the time of the siege of the Jews were assembled at Jerusalem to keep the Feast of Tabernacles, and thus the Christians throughout the land were able to make their escape unmolested. Without delay, they fled to a place of safety. The city of Pelor in the land of Perrier beyond Jordan friends, there is a very clear significance and lesson that we're going to learn from this to day. But as we have studied here so far, this of bomb, a nation of desolation represented the Roman armies that would come and surround Jerusalem. And they would stand there overlooking Jerusalem on the ground that the Jews considered Holy. Who came up 1st? His they were c'est Yes. Sest. Yes. Was a Roman general and he was leading the armies at around 80. I read different reports, 64 all the way to 66. I've always believe it was $66.00, but around $8066.00 the Roman armies would come and surround Jerusalem, ready for a favorable attack. The Jews were ready to surrender and give up. But all the sudden the Roman armies retreated Ok. And as they retreated, the Jews gaining confidence would run after them and attack them and almost destroy them. And they would be more bold and more bold in defiance against God. And against the 2nd time that the Roman armies would come in the 70 with Titus as their general. And we know that it is at that time that Jerusalem would be totally destroyed. Not even one stone would be left on top of another friends. Those that saw the warning, the 1st time they retreated very quickly. They didn't even go back to the House. And Ellen White said, not even one Christian perished, not even one will come back to this. But what is the abomination of desolation spoken of by Daniel the prophet? Let's go over to Daniel Chapter 9. Please tell him in your Bibles to Daniel Chapter 9. I only have on screen the quotes from the pen of inspiration of Ellen white. But please follow along with me in your Bibles, Daniel Chapter 9 in verse 27. This is probably the clearest link that we have to Daniel. We also see it in a few other places and we look at them. Ok, but dial 9 versus $27.00. The Bible says, and he shall come from the Covenant with many for one week. I'm sorry, friends, I am not going back to study the whole of the 70 weeks prophecy in Daniel 9. And the 2300 day prophecy in Daniel 8. But this is where is referenced, and he shall confirm the Covenant with many for one week. And in the midst of the week, he shall cause the sacrifice and ablation to cease. This is the prophecy of Jesus dying after 3 and a half years of Ministry in around $8030.00. He will cause the sacrifice of ablations a sees when he said it is finished, the veil was ripped from top to bottom, thus signifying that the Century and all its services will be done away with. And then it says, and for the overspreading of abominations, he shall make it desolate, even until the consummation and that determined shall be poured upon the desolate. What is those abominations you know when the Jews quote out his blood be upon our our shoulders and upon our children and our children's true and they pronounce a curse upon themselves when they crucified Jesus Christ and truly, 40 years later, the Roman armies would come around and destroy them, but friends, this is not the only abomination of desolation that is referring to what else and where else do we see it? Let's go in our Bibles today. You'll Chapter 8, Daniel Chapter 8 and verse 13 Daniel 8 verse 13. The Bible says this, and I heard one Saint speaking, and another Saint said unto that certain space Saint which spake, How long shall be the vision connoisseur Ning what? The trial, the daily sacrifice, and the transgression of desolation, to give both the Sentry and the host to be trodden under foot. What was the daily and the transgression of desolation? Here we see is not abomination of desolation, but it's very, very similar. Transgression is an abomination transgression of desolation. What is transgression? And this group is treading underfoot, God century, and his people, it must be a bad power, is a desolating power. What is transgression related to usually in the Bible? We connected with said Sin is the transgression of the law. Who is the transgression of desolation? Well, it is the man of sin, spoken of in 2nd US alone aeons Chapter 2. Let's turn our Bibles their 2nd Thessalonians chapter 2, and we're looking at verses 3 and 4. 2nd Thessalonians chapter 2, verses 3 and 4. Look at this. Let no man deceive you by any means for that day shall not come except there come a falling away 1st and that Man of Sin be revealed. The son of perdition, verse 4, who oppose Earth and exultant himself above all that is called God or that is worshiped. So that he as God siddhis in the temple of God, showing himself that he is God, He is trying to replace God. He wants to take the worship that is due only and alone to God and God alone. Friends, this is the man of sin. This is the anti CHRIST of Bible prophecy. So what is this abomination of desolation speaking about the anti CHRIST, the paper? See? How do I know? Let's turn our Bibles to another text. Let's go back to Daniel Daniel Chapter 11. Daniel Chapter 11. How do we know that this is referring to the end of Christ, Daniel 11 and verse 31? Look at this. And arms shall stand on his part, friends. I'm sorry. I cannot go through Daniel 11. In fact, I think one of the 1st studies we did was on Daniel 11, please go back there around March time. I have a whole service school lesson dedicated to Daniel Chapter 11. Please go back and study this and go through this. What arms shall stand on his part, who was given armies, all these other King of that ever existed before they have their own armies? There was only one Kingdom that would be given an Army. It was the papacy, the Roman Catholic Church, and they shall pollute the sanctuary of strength. Whose century is that. That is the Roman century, the century of strength and the take away the daily. And they shall place in its place the abomination that make of what desolate Who is that it was the rise of the anti CHRIST in 53880 when it would be given armies. And it would begin to rule as a desolating power. Armies would stand on its part, arms would stand on its part. This was the abomination. But friends, Jesus says, when you see the bomb, a nation of desolation, stand in the Holy place, you got to flee to the Mountains. Yes, this is referring to the Catholic Church. We see it here in Daniel 11, the abomination that make of desolate. Let's also go to Revelation Chapter 17. Look at this, Revelation Chapter 17, verses 4 and 5, Revelation Chapter 17, starting in verse 4. Look at this, and the woman was a raid in purple and Scarlet color, and decked with precious gold and precious stones and pearls having a Golden Cup in her hand, full of what abominations and filthiness of a fornication. And upon her forehead was a name written Mystery. Babylon, the Great, the mother of Harlots, and what abominations of the Earth, friends, it is very clear who this power is that the Bible is referring to as the abomination of desolation. Abomination is referring to this woman who commits fornication with the Kings of the Earth and causes the whole World to drink of the wine of her fornication. That my friends sounds like an abomination. Is she a desolating power as well? If you continue reading in Revelation 17 verse 6, she's drunk with the blood of the martyrs and of the Saints. But friends, I want to dig a bit deeper into what is this abomination? Where else do we see the Bible speak of abomination? It's very clear here that she is that abomination. But when is a that we have to flee to the Mountains? Ok, Jeremiah Chapter 7 and verse 30. Jeremiah Chapter 7, and verse 30. Let's go there. What else is abomination connected to? Jeremiah Chapter 7 and verse 34: The children of Juda have done evil in my sight. See if the Lord they have set their abominations in the House, which is called by my name to one polluter. What were the children of Israel doing? They were bringing their idols into God's House and they were worshipping idols there. That was what was happening in General Myers', they. Now Let's go to is equal chapter 5, was turned on by was to is equal chapter 5. What is an abomination? They were bringing idols in, and they were worshipping it in God's Holy sanctuary is equal chapter 5 and verse 11 is equal 5 and verse 11. Wherefore, as I live, saith the Lord. Wherefore as I live, saith the Lord God, surely because thou hast defiled my century with all that I did as the Will things and with all the in abominations. Therefore will I also diminish the neither shall mine I spare the neither will I have what any pity you know, it is also because of this reason that Babylon was allowed to come and conquer and bring the Jews and the Israelites into captivity. Because of doing all these things Abominable practices, they were bringing in, there are Eagles into the Holy sanctuary of God. Did you believe that? Let's also read is equal Chapter 7 and verse 20 is equal Chapter 7 and verse 20. Let's turn our Bibles, there is equal 720. The Bible says, as for the beauty of his on amends, he said it in Majesty, but they made their images of their abominations and of the detestable things they're in. Therefore, have I said it far from their friends. What was happening, idolatry was being introduced. Idol worship, an idol coming in, and their gods. They were worshipping of wood and of stone. They were bringing into God's Holy sanctuary and in his Tabernacle and worshipping them right there. Do you see that, you know, Solomon, he was really the main culprit behind this, but he was the one of the 1st to do this. He's the one that introduced abominations into Israel. Let's turn over to 1st Kings Chapter 11 and verse 5. 1st Kings Chapter 11 and verse 5, Let's turn to Bibles. The 1st Kings 11 verse 5. The Bible says for Solomon went after Ashtaroth, the goddess of the zone, eons and after milk. I'm that abomination of the Ammonites he was the principal one. Why? Because he married all these strange women. Do you see that strange women from other countries who worshiped idolatrous gods, who the 1st woman that he married was an Egyptian and she calmed Gov, got converted. So he thought he was smart enough that he could start converting all these Wise, but you know, what eventually happened, my dear friends, he would eventually start bowing down to all these are you dos. He would eventually start worshipping all these are all of his wives. He was the principal one and you know, friends, sometimes we think we know better than God. You know what those women represent in the Bible Church and we see a King marrying all these strange women from different other churches friends, doesn't matter who we marry. Absolutely, it does it. Absolutely. We've got to be careful that we think we're smarter than God and we know better than his word to go against his counsel about the sort of persons that we should be marrying in these last days. Friends you need are one or a wife or a husband that can uphold you in prayer, that when you're down that they can strengthen you. Do you know that you need someone who is walking with Jesus, who has accepted Jesus Christ as their Lord and Savior, and you have these similar practices such as your diet, the Sabbath, they believe in the century, friends they got to be of the same the nomination is what I'm saying. They've got to be of the same denomination. We got to be careful that we don't think we're smarter than God, that we know better than him. Friends, this is where faith must come in. Lord, you know, better than I. But you know, at the end of time, at the end of time, where do we see this abomination of desolation? It has come in. But we are not fully in today. Where do we see this abomination of desolation? What was abomination related to idle worship? Right. Do we see an idol in the Book of Revelation? Absolutely. Let's turn to Bibles to Revelation Chapter 13, Revelation Chapter 13 and we're going to start there in verse 14, Revelation Chapter 13, reading from verse 14, And Deceiver, thumb that dwell on the Earth. So what happens? Let me give you some context. Seems like it starts out in the middle of nowhere, right? USA, The 2nd Beast that comes up out of the Earth, he's going to make fire come down from Heaven. And he's going to deceive them. That one the Earth by the means of those miracles which he had power to do in the sight of the Beast, saying to them that one the Earth that they should make what urn in their judge to the beasts. Which had the wound by a sword. And did live if you want to understand what the image of the Beast this, you have to go through the study Revelation. I'm sorry, I don't have time to go through all of this here this morning, but we see an image at the end of time. Do you see that? And look what happens. Verse 15. And 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 image of the Beast should be killed. And he cause of all both small and great rich and poor, free and bond to receive a Mark in their right hand or in their foreheads. And that no man might buy or sell, save he save he that had the Mark or the name of the Beast, or the number of his name friends. Do you know what the bark of the Beast is related to when the image of the Beast begins to speak, then if you don't worship you be killed. If you don't receive the Mark of the Beast, you will be killed. Do you know what that is? I think many of US we understand what that is. That is referring to the Sunday law at the end of time. So let me just take one step back. People on Earth will make an image, but it's not speaking yet. The understand that when it begins to speak, that is what we call Sunday law. If you want to flee at that time, it's too late friends. It's too late. That that time is a Quill and 2 back then in 8070. When Titus came and surrounded the city, no one could leave, it was too late. The fleeing had to be done before that. The understand that the Mark of the Beast time is equivalent to $8070.00. When Titus surrounds Jerusalem, ready to destroy, and he does destroy everybody that parishes at that time. None of them are Christians and wants US the setting up of the image of the Beast. That is the time that we have to flee. Are you with me? The setting up of the image of the Beast is the time that we must flee. The Beast has not spoken. The image of the Beast has not spoken yet, but the image itself is set up. It's Sunday worship. Now look, Sunday, worship is has been around since the beginning of time. There's always been 2 class of followers. Are you with me since came when you get to the Tower of Babel, the spirit of Babylon has always been around. But what we are talking about here in Revelation 13 is not the Mark of the Beast, but it is a time before the Mark of the Beast, because this is a time to start running. This is the time of the Mark of the Beast is to lay there to close off the roads. Just like what they're doing for coven 19. They're catchy, very easily. The time before that is the time that we have to look out for it is the setting up of the image of the Beast. The form is there, but it has no power yet. It has no civil authority yet. You go to look for that time. When people are starting to give Sunday more, more what you call, putting it more in the spotlight and talking to everyone around the whole World, specifically in the United States of America. To start coming to worship on a Sunday. They're not forcing you. But the Sunday movement is much more in it and still today it's not happening. Look there, some people might say that it is, but USA has not started to do any miracles yet. You see that no one is being deceived and no one is saying, Hey, Let's just break down all the barriers. Lester's come to worship that the Ecumenical movement has been going on for a while. It has been for, for many, many years already in fact, but the Sunday movement is not as advanced as we think it to be. Ok, it's not a priority. You're not hearing it around all the churches. Ok. People are still pretty much separate to this day, but the setting up of the image, the I and all in the Holy place trying to take something Unholy. Sun worship, and try to replace the Sabbath with this Holy with Unholy. That is an abomination setting up an idol in the temple, in the sanctuary of God, friends, when we see the setting up of the image of the Beast, it's time to run It's primary application. Matthew $24.00 was the Roman armies that came and stood on what the Jews considered Holy ground. But when does that happen to day? When the image of the Beast is set up and friends, if you don't understand what the image of the Beast this or you're confused by what I'm talking about, and you just understand Mark of the Beast, or if you don't understand even the Sunday law, you got to go through our soul class, our revelation class please contact Evelyn. It will be the best investment you ever made. Are not going to talk about prices here, but just contact her after Sabbath. Please don't bombard her email with your your, your emails. Ok. But just make sure that you are becoming Wise and to Salvation. Friends. It is at this time. It is at this time that is time to flee, but is not only time to fully. You know what's going to happen. Let's turn our Bibles to Revelation Chapter 18, Revelation chapter 18 and verse 4. Revelation 18 verse 4, and I heard another voice from Heaven saying come out of her, MA, I, people that you be not partakers of a sentence and you receive not of her plagues. Friends, this is a time for the loud cry to go to Whole Whole World. When we begin to run, we're taking the Gospel with US wherever we go. We're not just running for our own safety and that's it. But we are still filled with the Holy Spirit. We're still concerned with God's Word. We are still concerned with the burden of souls for those that have not heard the Gospel and the message of God, yet the 3 Angels messages. This is that time, friends that wherever we run, just like in the book of Acts, we're going to be preaching and teaching. Friends the question that we have today is this. What should we be doing today? What should we be doing today? Let me share with you in Revelation 21 verse 27, Let's turn our Bibles that Revelation 21 and verse 27. Look what the Bible says. Revelation 2127 and there shell in no Wise enter into it. Anything that defile Earth neither whatsoever work of abomination. You see that what abomination or make of the lie, but they, which are written in the Lambs, Book of Life, friends, the abomination of desolation and everybody that follows them. There will not be say that the end of time you got to come out of Babylon. I want to share with you some quotes taken from the pen of inspiration in review and Herald. This is what it says. 40 years afterward. At the siege of Jerusalem. The Christians obeyed this warning, and not a single, not a Christian perished in the destruction of the city. You know, why not a single Christian perished in the destruction of Jerusalem is because they were watching they were watching and watching. They took heed of the words of Christ and then based upon what they had heard and studied and checked, they watched. They looked for the fulfillment, they didn't know when it would happen. But when they saw the Roman Army standing on that Holy ground, the sign was clear. You would only understand this if you were watching and you were watching not just outwardly. But what it means from the Biblical perspective, They were watching for the fulfillment of these signs. Are these signs for US a feeling today as well? Yes. Or was you hear of wars and rumors of wars, nation against nation, you hear of one famine, pestilence, earthquake. These are the Beginning of Sorrows. If you not been watching friends, here is that 1st watch. We're living in the beginning of Sorrows. We are at the end of time. It's a pandemic. Maybe you feel sorry for your money situation. Maybe you feel sorry for your job situation. Maybe you feel sorry for your education or situation because you're stuck in your room and maybe your graduation does is delayed. Maybe your s.p.n. for next year will be pushed back another year. You know, your entrance into colleges are, you know, this frustrating times we're living in but there's something that we got to take note off. We are in the beginning of Sorrows when your friends. We've got to watch. We got to watch. Look what else she says. Lead is a manuscript volume for one effort more. And then Satan's last device is employed. He hears the unceasing cry for Christ to come, for Christ to deliver them. This last strategy is to personate Christ and make them think their prayers are answered. But this is to the last closing work, the abomination of desolation. Standing in the Holy place. You know what this is talking about. The last the section of seats and when he will impersonate Christ, people are crying for the 2nd coming, but they're crying and for the wrong reason. They're just, they just tired of being hungry. They're just doing for all these selfish reasons. And so when they cry out without any biblical basis, Satan Unser their prayer, and he comes and he deceives them. Do you see that? And they think that this is the 2nd coming of Jesus, and this is really the abomination of desolation standing in the Holy place. This is when the Anti Christ and his deadly wound will be healed again. Of friends. We've got to be watching. We got to be studying. We've got to be praying. We must watch and suppress. The signs are there, but many of US, our Hearts are not moved. It's too calloused by sin. And so God needs something great to shake US awake. You see how many of US we're not watching? We're not understanding the times that we're living in and are not trying to be an alarmist, but friends signs like this, we got to stop just thinking it should be unnoticed. We've got to start taking serious paying serious attention to what is happening here. And so how else can we prepare? We need the Word of God. We've got to pray. But what else? Maranatha $180.00 paragraph to the paragraph 7: the time is not far distant when like the early disciples, we should be forced to seek a refuge in desolate and solitary places. As the siege of Jerusalem by the Roman armies was the signal for flight to the Judean Christians. So the assumption of power on the part of the nation, the United States, in the decree and forcing the papal Sabbath will be a warning to US. It will then be time to leave what the large cities, preparatory to leaving the smaller ones for retired homes in secluded places among the Mountains. For years I have been given special light that we are not to censor our work in the cities. The turmoil and confusion that fill these cities, the conditions brought about by the labor unions and the strikes would prove a great hindrance to our work. Men are seeking to bring those in Gage in the different trades under bondage to certain unions. This is not God's planning but the planning of a power that would in no Wise acknowledge, God, God's word is fulfilling. God's word is fulfilling. The wicked are binding themselves up in bundles ready to be burned. The trade unions and Confederacy's of the World are a snare keep out of them and away from their brother and have nothing to do with them. Because of these unions and Confederacy's, it will soon be very difficult for our institutions to carry on their work in the cities. Educate our people to get out of the cities in to the country where they can obtain a small piece of land and make a home for themselves and their children. Here along there will be such confusion in the cities that those who wish to leave them will not be able. We are not to locate ourselves where will be forced into close relations with those who do not honor God. A crisis is soon to come in regard to the observance of Sunday. The Sunday Party is strengthening itself in its false claims. And this will mean what a pressure. So those who determine to keep the Sabbath of the Lord, friends, Ellen, why it is clear? It's time to get out of the cities. What am I still doing here? I'm praying for hands on praying. God show me when it's time to sell everything and get out. I desire more than anything else. To get out. I have 3 small kids and they're rubbing shoulders with people that are ungodly every day. We're in this little condo here. You just can't help it. You understand that. Friends, some of US, we need to get out of the cities in haste. Others you got to stop praying. I don't, I'm not saying that you just got to pack up right now at the, at the whim of the sermon and just get out because I preach this. No, you Gotta start praying friends, saying God, when is the right time? When do you want me to get out? When is it? We shouldn't be congregating in the cities. And it's tough. I know some of US work in the cities, but you go start praying. If you don't, you'll never get out of the city. You know what I mean? We got to start praying and you got understand. I was, I'm a city boy. I'm kind of against getting out of the city. It's inconvenient. This is what I know. I don't like snakes and Bugs and Matson. Ha! Too much. I don't like all of that. But friends, we've got to get out for the sake of our children, for the sake of our own characters, maybe. And I know that it's tough. Some of US we can't understand how we can support ourselves, but we just got to start praying. God, please show me where and when Let's start making plans. It's not make, you know, Let's make sure we don't run ahead of God. Ok. But we've got to start making plans together. Now, after this pandemic, Let's start getting out friends. The cities are going to be destroyed 1st. And, you know, it's time to start taking this Council more seriously. And it's not just running for the sake of running. There is really one ultimate goal that we have because I know that if I move on to the country are probably at the start, stop plastering. And I don't know how it's going to work out. You know, the traffic here in Malaysia is so bad in k.l. that just living in the city, you're already traveling 40 minutes, 30 minutes, just for Bible studies and meetings being out in the country and gone. I wouldn't have a family life. I would not see my children and my wife sometimes for a whole day. I don't know. We have to figure this out, but I know that if God leads, we got to move forward. Today we're going to start praying. Today we're going to start taking all these councils more seriously. But there's one Council above all, and I'm not all into just running friends. But it's our Gospel Commission. Matthew 281020 go you therefore, and teach all Nations baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the son of the Holy Ghost. Teaching them to observe all things whatsoever. I have commanded you, and LoL. I am with you all way. Even unto the end of the World, friends in running, Let's not run to the country and just build a home for ourselves. Isolate ourselves and just wait for Jesus to come. Many might even be lost because of that. We still got to figure out a way to preach the Gospel to the whole World. We still got to figure out a way to how to preach the message to the cities. We still got to be involved in the Lord's work. God is not calling you today to get out into the country just to laugh at those that are in the city because they're stuck and they can't see the Sunshine and you know, they're suffering in once and need. No, he's calling you out to save yourselves and your children, but he's calling you out so that you can be an even greater blessing to those that are in the cities. You know, I've not seen how people can effectively work the city from the country yet. But now I know that we've got to start doing it. I know that we start need to start preparing today. What are the preparations that you need to make? Maybe you're disagreeing with me as I disagree with many people before me. When you talk about country living, but at least you can start praying God direct US. Show US. Here's my situation. And it's well nigh impossible for me to live so far out and to come in every day. But you've got to show me. You've got to direct me. You got to lead me. We got to start watching and praying. Today for truly Satan is getting ready. His forces. God is giving US sign this and those that he that will be saved, that lost friends. The setting up of the image is going to soon take place. How do I know? Because we have such situations of pandemic today. Matthew 24 is being fulfilled before our very eyes. Let's get ready. Because when the time comes that the Roman soldiers, the armies are standing there, it's time to run. It's time to flee. And so in this past couple of months, what have I been doing? What's the thrust of my messages? It's the last of the events friends ever since I shared with all of you about the order of loss the moments I've gone back to see how I can prove every single event from the Bible. And so here it is. The abomination of desolation. The image of the Beast, the Sunday law that is soon to come. These are the real events that we should be paying attention to. Yes, I'd like to get back to normal life as soon as possible. But I hope that all of US will have drawn closer to Christ in this time. And that God has shaken US awake that we will stop living the life of Laodicea over and over again. But the truly would be Hot and in love with Christ. And the father fully and then we can give the message a certain self. Friends. This is my prayer for you today. This is the press from myself as well. There will kick, keep our eyes fixed on Jesus, and there will be watching and we waiting. And looking at those signs for truly God has given US those signs today to get US ready. Let's be ready today friends. Let's take that 1st step towards Jesus. And to all the Council that he's been giving US. Let's pray Father and have a lot. I want to thank you so much for your word. I want to thank you Lord for the counsel from the pen of inspiration by Ellen White as well. But we've been so Blessed because you've told US you giving US warning. Upon warning. What is soon to take place upon this Earth? Many people are going to be caught unawares a lot. Father, I pray that none of US would be. For today we're going to start preparing. Today we're going to start watching. Today. We're going to start taking you more seriously than we ever have before. So guide US to that and Oh Lord, lead US all and help US to see how you are moving and the movements that you are making towards the 2nd coming. So that we might understand our responsibility today, Lord, that none of US will be taken away as Father. Please bless US and lead US and please guide US is my earnest plea in prayer. We might know what we want to do. But every day and every moment Jesus This media was brought to you by audio verse.
