Gut Punch

January 16, 2021
ADA 2019 – another gut punch for Lilly | Evaluate

*** Timely Update Video link below

Both figurative and literally, we have heard of the infamous term “gut punch”. Some like yours truly unfortunately have experienced the latter. A long time ago when I was a teenager (doing heathen things), I went to a party where some friends were there. Alcohol and music, of course was there.

A friend of mine ( so I thought) was there also. We’ll call him K. He was a rather large guy about 220, and 6 feet tall. As I was only 19 at the time and was only 140, and also about 6 ft. Anyway K was always one who wanted to be noticed. During the evening someone got the bright idea to show off and said he could drink an alcohol drink that was lit on fire. In other words, he was able to drink a fire drink without getting burned. And he did it, much to the crowd’s hearty approval.

K, not being the brightest cookie in the jar, decided he could do it as well ( due most likely to his drinking). But as he went to try it
, he jerked back in pain as the whole experience backfired on him. Well, as most of us there were tipsy from the alcohol, most of the people there burst out in laughter at K’s foolish attempt.

I was watching but did not make a big show of laughter or make any kind of embarrassment pointed at him like some of the others did. A minute or two later K walks over real slow and unloads a hard gut punch to me out of the blue!. Apparently, he thought I was one of them laughing at his pain.

Being well aware that a physical confrontation with big K would probably leave me with even more injury, so I simply sucked it up and went my way. I never forgot that from K, and did not speak to him for over 30 years until he looked me up on FB a couple years ago. Long story short we made amends and talk now and then today.

But there is another gut punch, right now, that many are experiencing from this last election. This one is figurative yet very real and painful, to literally half of the country. The Lord Word says —


“Jesus answered, “I am the way and the truth and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me.” (John 14:6)

And as such we followers of Christ –love Truth. And because we do, we naturally hate lies and falsehood. But this year’s election was false. In other words, the Truth is Donald Trump won, and Joe Biden stole it. So right now many in America are walking around as if they have received a gut punch. The hurt is deep. But we also know that despite what we see, our King is in control! This is the comfort to us believers.

“You will keep in perfect peace those whose minds are steadfast because they trust in Him.” (Isaiah 26:3)

“May the God of hope fill you with all joy and peace as you trust in him, so that you may overflow with hope by the power of the Holy Spirit.” (Romans 15:13)

Because Biden and Harris are seen as either communists or socialists, it can be a trying time for those of us who enjoy our freedoms. But nearly every week we hear from doubters and naysavers who express despair and forget Who is in charge. Personally I find comfort when I dwell on the Kingdom , being under the Kingship of our King, and it’s close expectation.

Those winds are held back brethren(Rev. 7), let us not forget! And we are told that ONLY when that great world war over the middle comes and the Lord shall do His “strange work” that the great time of trouble begins NOT before.

“The LORD will rise up as he did at Mount Perazim, he will rouse himself as in the Valley of Gibeon– to do his work, his strange work, and perform his task, his alien task.” (Isaiah 28:21)

And if you are Seventh-day Adventist, you better be ready and sealed in your forehead because DURING that great war the Lord will “suddenly come to His temple”. Let us read —

“Behold, I will send my messenger, and he shall prepare the way before me: and the Lord, whom ye seek, shall suddenly come to his temple, even the messenger of the covenant, whom ye delight in: behold, he shall come, saith the Lord of hosts.

But who may abide the day of his coming? and who shall stand when he appeareth? for he is like a refiner’s fire, and like fullers’ soap: And he shall sit as a refiner and purifier of silver: and he shall purify the sons of Levi, and purge them as gold and silver, that they may offer unto the Lord an offering in righteousness.

Then shall the offering of Judah and Jerusalem be pleasant unto the Lord, as in the days of old, and as in former years. And I will come near to you to judgment; and I will be a swift witness against the sorcerers, and against the adulterers, and against false swearers, and against those that oppress the hireling in his wages, the widow, and the fatherless, and that turn aside the stranger from his right, and fear not me, saith the Lord of hosts.” (Malachi 3:1-5)

In closing, this gut punch, this great injustice and theft of our election is not to be dwelled upon and cause us to be “down in the dumps” though we may feel the pain. We should have our minds on Who is in control and where we are going, God willing –His Kingdom.

“And it shall come to pass in the last days, that the mountain of the Lord’s house shall be established in the top of the mountains, and shall be exalted above the hills; and all nations shall flow unto it.

And many people shall go and say, Come ye, and let us go up to the mountain of the Lord, to the house of the God of Jacob; and he will teach us of his ways, and we will walk in his paths: for out of Zion shall go forth the law, and the word of the Lord from Jerusalem.” (Isaiah 2:2-3)

Questions and Answers on the current World Events

January 9, 2021
School Improvement / Questions and Answers


1 — Is the Covid Vaccine going to be the mark of the beast, because we could soon lose our right to go places or shop without it, according to some reports?

Absolutely not. The present truth message from Scripture, SOP, and the Rod is clear beyond doubt that the mark of the beast will be the Sunday Law. This we believe is just one of the New World order Globalist’s plans to get complete control of the population through this large scam known as Covid 19. Soon people will refer to it as Covid 19-21, we think! Yes, it’s real but WAY overblown by main-stream media (which is largely owned by the Globalist elites).

We know that very quickly the King of the North, the world’s leader who currently controls the Holy Land, through the Zionist movement and also much of the New World Order plans shall —


“And he shall plant the tabernacles of his palace between the seas in the glorious holy mountain, yet he shall come to his end, and none shall help him.”(Daniel 11:45)

2 — Now that it looks like Donald Trump will relinquish his role as president, does it look like Joe Biden will be the 666 man?

From what we gather, no it does not. First, in regards to this past election, Biden and Harris are truly an infiltration administration by way of thievery. The voter fraud committed, particularly with the seven contested states is mind-boggling. But we must remember the Lord approves or disapproves such circumstances and the outcomes —

“He changes times and seasons; he deposes kings and raises up others. He gives wisdom to the wise and knowledge to the discerning.” (Daniel 2:21)

Also , though slim right now as we write this, Trump still has his “Trump Card”, in that the military could get involved if released sensitive information is made public prior to the inauguration. For instance, we know that the votes were sent overseas during and after the election (into Germany) for nefarious reasons then sent back into the USA system for counting and published to the media. To what extent, we aren’t sure as of right now.

But regardless, if Biden does manage to take it by fraud, he cannot be seen as a strong candidate for the 666 man as spoken of in Rev. 13. This man is to be both charismatic, very influential, etc, which is not even close to the character of Biden. His mental agility is seriously lacking and can be seen only as a figurehead at this point, with behind the scenes (no doubt Globalist’s schemers) sources pulling the strings.


This is our new president??

3 — With the Boden administration in charge, how will the events of the middle east develop?

As Biden was the VP of Obama, he most likely will be more lenient to Iran than was Trump. But make no mistake Iran will still have pressure predominantly from Israel. Netanyahu is very anti Iran, and as long as he remains in power Iran will have much pressure. Also let’s remember that Great Britain (through the Rothchilds) still controls the Holy Land and that we are sure to see the following take place —

“Gather together, gather yourselves together, you shameful nation, before the decree takes effect
and that day passes like windblown chaff, before the Lord’s fierce anger comes upon you,
before the day of the Lord’s wrath comes upon you.

Seek the Lord, all you humble of the land, you who do what he commands. Seek righteousness, seek humility; perhaps you will be sheltered on the day of the Lord’s anger. Gaza will be abandoned and Ashkelon left in ruins. At midday, Ashdod will be emptied and Ekron uprooted. Woe to you who live by the sea, you Kerethite people; the word of the Lord is against you, Canaan, land of the Philistines.He says, “I will destroy you, and none will be left.” (Zeph. 2:1-5)

Let us also remember once the war commences, DURING that war the prophecy of Ezek. 9 will take place.

 “..while the powers of earth are engulfed in a gigantic war, the wicked in the church shall be cut off, no more to pass through her.” (Tract 14, p.22)

Bottomline, whatever administration is at the head of the USA, the war will happen and logically that leader at that time will be the 666 man. The following shows this —

“Having only two horns, not ten, the beast therefore  depicts a local, not a universal, government.  Nevertheless, he will influence all Christendom  to “make an image to the beast, which had the wound by a sword, and did live”; that is, he will engineer a world-wide governmental setup, re-enthroning the principles of the church-state rule of Ecclesiastical Rome.  Being the restorer of these principles, he, along with the prophet, will become the world’s chief dictator, and shape not only the political and the religious policies of the governments, but also the world’s commerce.  He shall decree “that no man might buy or sell, save he that had the mark, or the name of the beast, or the number of his name.” Rev. 13:17.

   This beast represents a man who stands at the head of a nation, and whose influence goes far and wide among the kings of the earth. He is further identified by a number — the mystical  number “six hundred threescore and six.” Rev. 13:18. (2 SRod, p.151)

4 — Under the Biden administration, are our freedoms going to be more constricted, particularly with his Covid plans?

It certainly looks that way. He has already stated that he wants to implement a “national law” making masks mandatory during this Covid crisis. Also, like it or not, Democrats have largely been the party of rules and regulations, down through our USA history. Again the idea that the people of the USA voted in record-breaking numbers so huge (they say 80 million) is utterly the most crocked up baloney an election has ever seen!

But take heed the Lord has told the four angels to keep those winds held UNTIL the 144,000 are disclosed to view (upon the Ezek. 9 church judgment and that war). Thus when that happens the “great controversy” as SOP wrote will indeed take place. Two sides then will take the field, the saints army (144,000) and the 666/False prophet army.

Let’s be ready for the Lord’s Word says —


“Great changes are soon to take place in our world …The final movements will be rapid ones “(LDE, p.11)

Diet Counsel

January 2, 2021
How to Teach Children About Healthy Eating, Without Food Shaming - The New  York Times

Throughout our history we have learned to cultivate, plant, hunt, harvest, fish, etc for our food. Food and drinks are so important to our life, that sad to say, most do not know the depth of just how important it is! This being the case our King made sure to bring us counsel on the right and wrongs of diet.

Before we share the most wonderful health information, we’d like to share a recent report we received on John the Baptist and infomation on his “Locust diet”.

CAROB OR LOCUST INSECT?

Is there a herb or plant called “Locust” apart from the actual grasshopper or locust that John the Baptist may have eaten?

John’s clothes were made of camel’s hair, and he had a leather belt around his waist. His food was locusts and wild honey. – Matthew 3:4

Possibly, it will depend on the interpretation of Sacred Scriptures one desires to follow.

There are some, who believe that along with honey, St. John the Baptist ate the fruit of the carob tree also known as the locust bean (tree).

The carob (Ceratonia siliqua) is a flowering evergreen tree or shrub in the legume family, Fabaceae. It is widely cultivated for its edible pods, and as an ornamental tree in gardens and landscapes. The carob tree is native to the Mediterranean region and the Middle East.

1)The word “carob” comes from Middle French carobe (modern French caroube), which borrowed it from Arabic خَرُّوبٌ (kharrūb, “locust bean pod”)

2) Ultimately perhaps from Akkadian language kharubu or Aramaic kharubha, related to Hebrew harubh.

3) Ceratonia siliqua, the scientific name of the carob tree, derives from the Greek kerátiοn κεράτιον ‘fruit of the carob (from keras κέρας ‘horn’), and Latin siliqua ‘pod, carob’.

4) In English, it is also known as “St John’s bread”, as well as “locust tree”, (not African locust bean) the designation also applied to several other trees from the same family. Carob (Wikipedia)


The Oxford English Dictionary weighed in on John’s diet too. It says that the carob tree was nicknamed “locust” akris (plural, akrides in Greek) because of the shape of the pods and the way they clustered on the tree, and so John was therefore indeed dining on carobs, not actual locusts, together with his wild honey.


**************************

As one of the most powerful food substances in the world, Carob is truly a Godsend. And as the message tells us to strictly avoid Chocolate, this is a perfect substitute. We will find that all the “forbidden foods and drinks” that we so often desire, God usually gives a BETTER substitute for them. In this understanding, the following is the Tract that brother Houteff wrote concerning all the things we need to know concerning diet and health. Be Blessed!
