THE KINGDOM OF JUDAH, THE SIFTING OF THE NATIONS

June 25, 2022

TEXT OF ADDRESS BY V.T. HOUTEFF,
MINISTER OF DAVIDIAN 7TH-DAY ADVENTISTS
SABBATH, DECEMBER 21, 1946

WACO, TEXAS

OPENING PRAYER THOUGHT

I shall read from “The Mount of Blessing,” page 174, beginning with the first paragraph. The title of this reading is, “Thine is the kingdom, and the power, and the glory.”

M.B. p. 174 — “The last like the first sentence of the Lord’s prayer, points to our Father as above all power and authority and every name that is named… Amid national strife and ruin, the steps of the disciples would be beset with perils, and often their hearts would be oppressed by fear. They were to see Jerusalem a desolation, the temple swept away, its worship forever ended, and Israel scattered to all lands, like wrecks on a desert shore. Jesus said: ‘Ye shall hear of wars and rumors of wars.’ ‘Nations shall rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom; and there shall be famines, and pestilences, and earthquakes, in divers places. All these are the beginning of sorrows.’ Yet Christ’s followers were not to fear that their hope was lost, or that God had forsaken the earth. The power and the glory belong unto Him whose great purposes would still move on unthwarted toward their consummation. In the prayer that breathes their daily wants, the disciples of Christ were directed to look above all the power and dominion of evil, into the Lord their God, whose kingdom ruleth over all, and who is their Father and everlasting Friend.”

The disciples expected Jerusalem in their time to become the capital of God’s great Kingdom. But contrary to their expectations, Jesus proclaimed that Jerusalem would become a desolation, and the temple a ruin! Thus again and again we are led to see that we finite beings never know God’s plans. Indeed, we need to pray for His Spirit to lead us on and on, and to point out the right way at every turn as we journey onward to Eternity. Let us now pray that the knowledge of these truths will make us just what we ought to be.

THE KINGDOM OF JUDAH, THE SIFTING OF THE NATIONS

Last Sabbath we concluded our study with verse eleven of Zechariah 14, and now in order to connect today’s study with last Sabbath’s, we shall briefly review the events concerning Jerusalem, as predicted in the first eleven verses of the same chapter.

The first event predicted is a war against Jerusalem, in which all nations participate. In that war a part of the people in Jerusalem go into captivity, but the rest remain in the city. Moreover, in that day the Lord’s feet stand on the Mount of Olives, and the mountain cleaves toward the east and toward the west, making a great valley. Then to this valley of the mountains, to the place where the Lord’s feet stand, the people of God flee as hastily as if from an earthquake. Thus is Jerusalem to be re-inhabited by God’s Own people. Evidently those who are not cut off, those who are left in Jerusalem, must be the faithful that are found therein. But those who flee to the valley to where the Lord’s feet stand — flee to Him, not away from Him — must be the faithful from elsewhere. Plainly, Jerusalem is to become the great gathering place for God’s people.

These are some of the things which our last Sabbath’s study, the first part of Zechariah chapter 14,

Timely Greetings, Vol. 1, No. 20, page 11

brought to view, and any Bible student should readily see that they are pre-millennial: The people do not descend from Heaven, but instead they flee into the valley. They could not, therefore, be the wicked, for they flee to Him, not away from Him. Now let us continue with the twelfth verse.

Zech. 14:12 — “And this shall be the plague wherewith the Lord will smite all the people that have fought against Jerusalem; Their flesh shall consume away while they stand upon their feet, and their eyes shall consume away in their holes, and their tongue shall consume away in their mouth.”

In one of the preceding verses we are told that the Lord is to fight against all those who fight against Jerusalem. And now in this verse we are told of the means which the Lord will employ in that warfare. He is not to use man-made weapons, but a plague.

Zech. 14:13 — “And it shall come to pass in that day, that a great tumult from the Lord shall be among them; and they shall lay hold every one on the hand of his neighbour, and his hand shall rise up against the hand of his neighbour.”

Besides the plague, there shall be a great tumult — a confusion and excitement that will turn every man against his neighbor. Thus shall the Lord defeat the enemies of His people.

Zech. 14:14 — “And Judah also shall fight at Jerusalem; and the wealth of all the heathen round about shall be gathered together, gold, and silver, and apparel, in great abundance.”

During this conflict of the nations, the Kingdom of

Timely Greetings, Vol. 1, No. 20, page 12

Judah is to be restored. She also shall fight at Jerusalem, and shall gather to herself the wealth of the heathen.

Zech. 14:15 — “And so shall be the plague of the horse, of the mule, of the camel, and of the ass, and of all the beasts that shall be in these tents, as this plague.”

The plague falls on both men and beast that are found in the tents of the unbelieving.

Zech. 14:16 — “And it shall come to pass, that every one that is left of all the nations which came against Jerusalem shall even go up from year to year to worship the King, the Lord of hosts, and to keep the feast of tabernacles.”

This sentence of Scripture emphatically implies that all who at that decisive moment refuse to be converted to the Lord, shall perish; only those who worship the Lord at Jerusalem on the feast of tabernacles, shall be spared.

Zech. 14:17 — “And it shall be, that whoso will not come up of all the families of the earth unto Jerusalem to worship the King, the Lord of hosts, even upon them shall be no rain.”

The “rain” will be withheld from all who do not then worship the King, the Lord of hosts, in order that they may fully realize their mistake. Moreover, not only those who shall fight against Jerusalem, but even all the families of the earth shall be thus sifted.

Zech. 14:18 — “And if the family of Egypt go not up, and come not, that have no rain; there shall be the plague, wherewith the Lord will smite the heathen that come

Timely Greetings, Vol. 1, No. 20, page 13

not up to keep the feast of tabernacles.”

If the drought fails to awaken them, then the plague will finally take them. Thus all who have not heard the message will be given opportunity to hear it. If it cannot save them it will eventually destroy them.

Now we see that this event (the Lord’s standing on the mount and the saints’ fleeting to the valley) is not only pre-millennial, but even pre-probationary; that it commences the re-establishment of the house of Judah; that it prepares the way for lightening the earth with the glory of the angel (Rev. 18:1); that it is eventually to bring the end of sinners.

Zech. 14:19 — “This shall be the punishment of Egypt, and the punishment of all nations that come not up to keep the feast of tabernacles.”

Again we see the necessity of forsaking our preconceptions of the final work of the gospel. No, the Lord will not drop upon the world like a bolt from the sky. He will first magnify His Word, His power, His righteousness and His church or people. He is also to have, as it were, an ark of safety into which to gather His elect and shield them. All these facts, you see, are vividly borne out in this prophecy.

Zech. 14:20 — “In that day shall there be upon the bells of the horses, HOLINESS UNTO THE LORD; and the pots in the Lord’s house shall be like the bowls before the altar.”

Bells on horses serve no other purpose than to help their masters locate them. Thus it will be that only those servants whose “bells” (voices) sound “Holiness unto the Lord” can the Lord locate and gather as His Own.

Timely Greetings, Vol. 1, No. 20, page 14

Zech. 14:21 — “Yea, every pot in Jerusalem and in Judah shall be holiness unto the Lord of hosts: and all they that sacrifice shall come and take of them, and seethe therein: and in that day there shall be no more the Canaanite in the house of the Lord of hosts.”

This verse is self-explanatory, it needs no comments.

So it is seen that with the establishment of the Kingdom of Judah commences the sifting of the nations. It must be that we are on the verge of witnessing the fulfillment of these prophecies else the Scroll would not have been unrolled so far as to unseal them at this time — certainly not if the Spirit of Truth alone leads into all Truth, and if the Lord gives “meat in due season.” In view of this, let us wholeheartedly do God’s bidding and sincerely act out our faith in His never-failing Word.

God’s People In Action

May 28, 2022

In the above picture, we see many of the founding members of the religious group called Davidian Seventh-day Adventists. Today this group has grown tremendously and what we’d like to show you is an example of their worship service. Take a good look at their style of worship. Are they respectful and properly dressed as Adventists? Is there order? Do they reflect holy tribute to God in the service? Are the women wearing the proper head coverings? Kneeling while praying?

As Adventists, these people are striving to be among the 144,000 as we are counseled to do in SOP (Review and Herald, March 9, 1905). As many know there exists a BIG difference in Davidian SDA and regular Seventh-day Adventists. When you go to an SDA service, you’ll most likely find it not at all with the same holy reverence as the recent videos below provided of the DSDA service.

Be blessed, and soon by God’s grace you will witness these same people fulfilling the following prophecy —

“Blow ye the trumpet in Zion, and sound an alarm in my holy mountain: let all the inhabitants of the land tremble: for the day of the LORD cometh, for it is nigh at hand; a day of darkness and of gloominess, a day of clouds and of thick darkness, as the morning spread upon the mountains: a great people and a strong; there hath not been ever the like, neither shall be any more after it, even to the years of many generations. A fire devoureth before them; and behind them a flame burneth: the land is as the garden of Eden before them, and behind them a desolate wilderness; yea, and nothing shall escape them. The appearance of them is as the appearance of horses; and as horsemen, so shall they run. Like the noise of chariots on the tops of mountains shall they leap, like the noise of a flame of fire that devoureth the stubble, as a strong people set in battle array.” (Joel 2:1-5)

DEMOCRACY, COMMUNISM, CATHOLICISM, OR PROTESTANTISM–WHICH IS NEXT TO RULE THE WORLD?

TEXT FOR PRAYER

Christ Reproduced In His People

Christ’s Object Lessons, page 69, beginning with the first paragraph:

“‘When the fruit is brought forth, immediately he putteth in the sickle, because the harvest is come.’ Christ is waiting with longing desire for the manifestation of Himself in His church. When the character of Christ shall be perfectly reproduced in His people, then He will come to claim them as His own. 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 sown with the seed of the gospel. Quickly the last great harvest would be ripened, and Christ would come to gather the precious grain.”

Here is truth that tells when we may expect Christ to come and gather His own: “When the character of Christ shall be perfectly reproduced in His people.”

We should now pray that we put forth the effort to grow as Christians, to love and work for others, to reproduce Christ’s character in us, then this old world will come to an end, and the new world will for us commence.

Timely Greetings, Vol. 2, No. 36, page 2

DEMOCRACY, COMMUNISM, CATHOLICISM, OR PROTESTANTISM–WHICH IS NEXT TO RULE THE WORLD?

Are the nations from now on to live in two worlds? Man may guess, but he cannot predict. God alone knows the future. And if He does not tell us, then we shall never know ahead of time.

 

Daniel 7; Revelation 13, 17
 
Timely Greetings, Vol. 2, No. 36, page 3

On this charted symbolism is seen the world in prophecy from the prophet Daniel’s time down to our day, and beyond. In this symbolical prophecy, therefore, we must search to see if there is any information given on the subject in question.

We and the majority in Christendom commonly believe that the lion represents the ancient empire of Babylon, the bear Medo-Persia, the leopard Grecia, and the non-descript beast in his two phases the empires of Pagan and Papal Rome. But as to the leopard-like beast, and the scarlet-colored, we may not hold views alike. And that is why we need to study now as never before if we are to know the Truth.

If the beasts of Daniel, the first four beasts on the chart, represent four periods of time, one following the other, then why should not the last three likewise represent three periods of time, one following the other? — Logically they should. We need not, however, wholly depend upon logic, for the symbols themselves should define the time and the systems they portray.

In contrast to the crownless horns on the non-descript beast (Daniel’s fourth beast) you see the crowned horns on the leopard-like beast of Revelation 13.

Why crowns on the one and no crowns on the other? — The only logical and scriptural answer that can be given is this: The angel explained to Daniel that the horns on the non-descript beast symbolize kings that had no kingdom as yet, that they would someday arise, take up their crowns and reign. (Daniel 7:24). And history records that

Timely Greetings, Vol. 2, No. 36, page 4

this happened when Pagan Rome fell, and that the kings that then took their crowns, kingdoms, are the kings who reach down to our day. These kings have now almost dwindled away, their thrones are being taken by Fascism, Communism, or by some form of Republicanism.

The leopard-like beast, therefore, having his horns crowned, definitely denotes that he comes into being after the career of the non-descript beast, after the fall of Pagan Rome, and during the time the kings receive their kingdoms, for crowned horns denote crowned kings.

Moreover, the leopard-like beast blasphemed God and His tabernacle forty-two months, which is exactly the same length of time in which the little horn power of the non-descript beast was to speak against the Most High and to wear out the saints. He was to do this for a time (one year), times (two years), and dividing of time (half year) equal to forty-two months (Dan. 7:25). Both the leopard-like and the non-descript beast in the second phase, were against God and His people for the same length of time — forty-two symbolical months.

Plainly, then, the leopard-like beast reigns contemporaneously with the second phase of the non-descript beast.

Still further, the leopard-like beast is a composite beast of all the beasts before it! His mouth of a lion, feet of a bear, body of a leopard, and ten horns are marks which identify him to be a descendant of the four ancient world empires — Babylon, Medo-Persia, Grecia, and Rome. He is therefore the symbol of the world of today, the fifth symbolical beast.

Timely Greetings, Vol. 2, No. 36, page 5

Now the fact that the wounded head of the leopard-like was to have his wound healed, and also the fact that the scarlet-colored beast of Revelation 17 is a beast that has the same characteristics as the leopard-like beast, having ten horns and seven heads but no wound on any of them, proves that the latter beast is symbolical of the time after the deadly wound is healed, of a seventh period of time for the two-horn beast comes before the scarlet-colored beast, and he is the one who makes an image of the beast before it.

We are now ready to see by means of this symbolical beast, the seventh, the kind of world we are entering into, — whether Democracy, Communism, Catholicism, or Protestantism, is next to rule. Light on the subject can be seen from the horns, and from the woman that rides, rules, the beast.

Let us first determine whom the woman represents. The first clue is in the widely known fact that Inspiration never symbolizes civil governments by a woman, but It does repeatedly symbolize a religious institution, a church, by a woman, one that brings converts to its creed. The beast, as do all other symbolical beasts, we have seen, represents the world, while the horns represent the rulers. The horns, ten in number are, moreover, significant of universality as are the ten toes on the great image of Daniel 2, and the ten virgins of Matthew 25. The heads, seven in number, also signify completeness, the whole.

Now the fact that the horns have no kingdom as yet, while the woman rides the beast, also the fact that the woman rides it, rules it, is

Timely Greetings, Vol. 2, No. 36, page 6

evidence enough that the world is next to be ruled by an ecclesiastical body, not purely by Democracy or by Communism.

That the woman riding the beast symbolizes the world in this day and age is evident from the fact that the ten horns, the civil powers that be during the reign of Babylon, hate the woman, the Church. Communism being the only world-wide ruling power since the world began to hate religion, the Church, is itself solid proof that the ten horns are symbolical of Communism, and that the beast represents a period of time in which Communism is about to dominate the world’s seat of government. God is nevertheless to intercept by putting it in their hearts to “give their power and strength unto the beast,” “and to give their kingdom unto the beast, until the word of God is fulfilled.”

Thus they receive power one symbolical hour with the beast, they themselves not having a kingdom of their own. And in the end of the “hour” they “make her desolate and naked, and shall eat her flesh, and burn her with fire.” Rev. 17:16.

Since the woman is a “mother of harlots” (Rev. 17:5), it is obvious that other sects have sprung from her.

We have now seen that the world is next to be ruled not by Democracy, not by Communism, not by Protestantism, nor by Catholicism. It is to be ruled by a system of religion in which all her daughters participate — a church and state government, which is to be an image or likeness of the leopard-like beast before it received its deadly wound.

Timely Greetings, Vol. 2, No. 36, page 7

Soon, Brother, Sister, we are to enter into this period of persecution, and how thankful we should be that there is no need to fear, no need to be taken off guard. For with the Light now shining on our pathway we should know what to expect and how to cope with the situation. Truly “unto the upright there ariseth light in the darkness.” Ps. 112:4.

Timely Greetings, Vol. 2, No. 36, page 8

The Lord Is Coming

The Lord is coming! seas, retire!
Ye mountains, melt to liquid fire!
Ye oceans, cease to ebb and flow!
His stately steppings ye should know.

The Lord is coming! Who shall stand?
Who shall be found at His right hand?–
He with the righteous garment on
Which Christ our glorious King hath won.

The Lord is coming! watch and pray!
So shalt thou hasten that glad day;
So shalt thou then escape the snare,
And Christ’s eternal glory share.

–Anon.

Sunday Worship in God’s house?

April 30, 2022



Let’s face it, we as Seventh-day Adventists were given a message back in 1844, a message that was to come from the Lord through His servant –Ellen G. White. Yes amazingly today, it’s as if we never got any message from the Lord through His prophetess!

Shame and pity are all we can describe in what you are about to see. Our own people, His Church, so-called, has stooped so slow that a great abomination is occurring within His house each week! Yet few are alarmed. Recently we made a video on our YouTube channel that goes into what is happening within our SDA church today. The following is the link. Please pray about this as this will surely not go without righteous judgment when that day comes,

“For, behold, the Lord will come with fire, and with his chariots like a whirlwind, to render his anger with fury, and his rebuke with flames of fire.

For by fire and by his sword will the Lord plead with all flesh: and the slain of the Lord shall be many.

They that sanctify themselves, and purify themselves in the gardens behind one tree in the midst, eating swine’s flesh, and the abomination, and the mouse, shall be consumed together, saith the Lord.

For I know their works and their thoughts: it shall come, that I will gather all nations and tongues; and they shall come, and see my glory.

And I will set a sign among them, and I will send those that escape of them unto the nations, to Tarshish, Pul, and Lud, that draw the bow, to Tubal, and Javan, to the isles afar off, that have not heard my fame, neither have seen my glory; and they shall declare my glory among the Gentiles.

And they shall bring all your brethren for an offering unto the Lord out of all nations upon horses, and in chariots, and in litters, and upon mules, and upon swift beasts, to my holy mountain Jerusalem, saith the Lord, as the children of Israel bring an offering in a clean vessel into the house of the Lord.” (Isaiah 66:15-20)

From Riches to Rags and Rags to Riches, Part 2 of 2

April 16, 2022

Many have heard of poor people who struck it rich by winning the Lottery. Case after case tell of this magical dream come true. Yet few know that a certain group of generally poor people, the 144,000, among us today will far outstrip these lottery winners in wealth and riches! Not only that but be given a position so blessed and exalted that the Lord calls them — saviors! Amazing.

“And the captivity of this host of the children of Israel shall possess that of the Canaanites, even unto Zarephath; and the captivity of Jerusalem, which is in Sepharad, shall possess the cities of the south. And saviors shall come up on mount Zion to judge the mount of Esau, and the kingdom shall be the LORD’S.” (Obadiah 1:20-21)

So right now there exist obscure ones among us who the Lord will exalt when the time is right. Speaking of the times in the land of the final Loud Cry headquarters (AKA –the Kingdom) we read —

“Therefore your gates shall be open continually; They shall not be shut day or night, That men may bring to you the wealth of the Gentiles, And their kings in procession.” (Isaiah 60:11)

“Besides being skilled agronomists, artisans, and tradesmen, these governors of the Kingdom, as living embodiments of genuine Christianity, are to be expert international bankers, economists, personnel and traffic engineers, and provisioners, together handling “the forces” and “the riches of the Gentiles.” Isa. 6:5, 11; 61:6. And thus variously equipped with these excellent proficiencies, they are, above all, to be “Priests of the Lord…Ministers of our God”–“men wondered at.” Isa. 61:6; Zech. 3:8.”(5 ANS, p.23)

Not only riches are given them, but kings shall submit to them as well —

“And the sons of strangers shall build up thy walls, and their kings shall minister unto thee: for in My wrath I smote thee, but in My favour have I had mercy on thee.” (Isaiah 60:10)

Thus, we see that the current undisclosed ones (144,000) will have Kings minister to them! A true rags to riches story!

“Isa. 60:17 — “For brass I will bring gold, and for iron I will bring silver, and for wood brass, and for stones iron: I will also make thy officers peace, and thine exactors righteousness.”

Yes, of better than the best shall the house of God be built.” (1 TG, no. 40, p.21)

The final Loud Cry headquarters will be precious, complete with a majestic “house of God”!

In summary, soon the tables turn — the rich become poor and the poor become rich! Amen.

For a video series of the final glorious and rich kingdom set up in the holy land see our YouTube video series. Be Blessed.

From Riches to Rags and Rags to Riches, Part 1 of 2

April 2, 2022

Let’s face it, from an early age many of us learned the great value of money. I remember as a kid getting 35 cents a week for doing chores and we thought that was great! Of course, things were much cheaper back then. But the idea of what money could do was engrained in our minds from an early age. This would only get more firm and desirable as we grew up.

Yet our loving God warns us many times about the love of money. Yes, He even uses heathens to warn. In fact there was a popular hit song made in 1978, despite being heathen and worldly in nature, its message NAILS what money does to many, it’s holding power —

“Are you under the power of Gold?”
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Kk75J-VwUOU

Before we begin we are reminded that the Word tells us that money can be a trap.

“For the love of money is the root of all evil: which while some coveted after, they have erred from the faith, and pierced themselves through with many sorrows.” (1 Tim. 6:10)

“And, behold, one came and said unto him, Good Master, what good thing shall I do, that I may have eternal life? And he said unto him, Why callest thou me good? there is none good but one, that is, God: but if thou will enter into life, keep the Commandments.

He saith unto him, Which? Jesus said, Thou shalt do no murder, Thou shalt not commit adultery, Thou shalt not steal, Thou shalt not bear false witness, Honour thy father and thy mother: and, Thou shalt love thy neighbor as thyself.

The young man saith unto him, All these things have I kept from my youth up: what lack I yet? Jesus said unto him, If thou will be perfect, go and sell what thou hast, and give to the poor, and thou shalt have treasure in heaven: and come and follow me.

 But when the young man heard that saying, he went away sorrowful: for he had great possessions. Then said Jesus unto his disciples, Verily I say unto you, That a rich man shall hardly enter into the kingdom of heaven. And again I say unto you, It is easier for a camel to go through the eye of a needle, than for a rich man to enter into the kingdom of God.” (Matt; 19:16-24)

FROM RICHES TO RAGS

In today’s world, we generally know who is the “richest of the rich”. Forbes magazine annually publishes the top 100 richest people on earth. Only one dirty little secret. They leave out the “real” richest ones! Do the Rothschilds ring a bell? They should, for their family basically created the modern world’s banking system in the early 1800s. They and the Rockefellers, for example, are truly the richest of the rich today. There exist about 7 or 8 closely-knit families (aka dynasties) that basically control most of the world’s money (Gold, Silver, the printing presses, etc.)

As some know, the Rothschilds have Biblical significance as well, due to their control of Great Britain for centuries. The “queen” is just a figurehead as many know. Great Britain in the end times is called the king of the North, along with the other Assyrian nations (USA, Canada, Australia, Germany, France for example). Thus the USA is a leader among the Assyrian nations and is considered KON by this connection. However the Elijah message tells us —

“Plainly then, during the time of the end Great Britain is the king of the north …”(1 TG, no. 4, p.22)

“Because of idolatry, the Assyrian was permitted to take God’s ancient people and their pleasant land. And certain it is that the Assyrian will control the land just so long as God’s people continue in idolatry. But, just as soon as all idols are cast aside, — yes, as soon as the great revival and reformation takes place in the hearts of the people, — then the Assyrian (the power that now rules them) shall certainly fall, and God’s people shall just as certainly return. The Assyrian shall thus fall, not at the sword of a mighty man, and not of a mean man, but “through the voice of the Lord shall the Assyrian be beaten down, which smote with a rod.” Isa. 30:31. (1 TG, no.33, p.4-5)

Also In Daniel, we know that the King of the North ( Identification key to the KON — Tract 12, p.86-87) will be VERY rich, for it says —

“But he shall have power over the treasures of gold and of silver, and over all the precious things of Egypt..” (Daniel 11:43)

Who today basically runs much of the world’s wealth? You got it the Rothschild’s banking empire, its tentacles far-reaching into nearly every nation (North Korea and Iran, being two exceptions).

So what has this riches to rags idea have to do with end times? Verse 45 of Daniel tells us —

“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.”

You see brethren, soon the most powerful men by virtue of their riches shall be brought down! Their rulership shall soon cease! In fact, many of those caught in that web of desire for riches shall meet up with this Word of God and fulfill it —

“In that day a man shall cast his idols of silver, and his idols of gold, which they made each one for himself to worship, to the moles and to the bats; To go into the clefts of the rocks, and into the tops of the ragged rocks, for fear of the LORD, and for the glory of his majesty, when he ariseth to shake terribly the earth.” (Isaiah 2:20-21)

Thus, the rich are soon to become poor. Rothschilds, Rockerfellers, and all the wealthy men of the earth will no longer hold the power they now have, the world’s power structure will turn to the meek and lowly, yet RICH in God’s Word and power! And even riches too!

In the next post, we’ll discuss the “rags to riches” part.

MINISTER OF D. SEVENTH-DAY ADVENTISTS
SABBATH, SEPTEMBER 6, 1947
MT. CARMEL CHAPEL
WACO, TEXAS

TEXT FOR PRAYER

Turn From Debate; Present The Truth

I shall read from Christ’s Object Lessons, beginning on page 40, the last paragraph–

“Instead of discussing erroneous theories, or seeking to combat the opponents of the gospel, follow the example of Christ. Let fresh truths from God’s treasure-house flash into life. ‘Preach the word.’ ‘Sow beside all waters.’ ‘Be instant in season, out of season.’ ‘He that hath My word, let him speak My word faithfully. What is the chaff to the wheat? saith the Lord.’ ‘Every word of God is pure…. Add thou not unto His words, lest He reprove thee, and thou be found a liar.'”

We should pray this afternoon for the ability to follow the example of Christ in teaching. We should also pray that we shall remember that we are instructed not to engage in debate with those who disagree with us; that Christ did not debate, and neither must we if we are to win; that God will supply us with fresh truths to bring to the people; that if such truths do not convince the opposers of the “everlasting gospel,” nothing will, even if the dead should arise for a witness against them; that we exalt the Bible above all other books; that we measure all else with the Bible yardstick, and forever break all other measuring sticks.

A FEAST THAT ROLLS AWAY THE VEIL, OPENS THE GATES, AND CAUSES DEATH TO FLEE AWAY

The text of our study this afternoon is Isaiah 25 and 26. In order properly to orientate ourselves to the subject matter, we shall begin with the sixth verse of chapter twenty-five. Afterwards we shall study the first five verses.

Isa. 25:6 — “And in this mountain shall the Lord of hosts make unto all people a feast of fat things, a feast of wines on the lees, of fat things full of marrow, of wines on the lees well refined.”

First of all we should find the truth of this figurative mountain. For this information we must go to the last verse of the twenty-fourth chapter, because the story of the twenty-fifth chapter begins with the previous chapter. We shall read these verses connectedly:

Isa. 24:23; 25:6 — “Then the moon shall be confounded, and the sun ashamed, when the Lord of hosts shall reign in Mount Zion, and in Jerusalem, and before His ancients gloriously. And in this mountain [Mount Zion] shall the Lord of hosts make unto all people a feast of fat things, a feast of wines on the lees, of fat things full of marrow, of wines on the lees well refined.”

Timely Greetings, Vol. 2, No. 5, page 3

Here you see that “Mount Zion” is the mountain on which the Lord will prepare a feast for all people, a feast of tempting things. There will the people gather together.

Isa. 25:7 — “And He will destroy in this mountain the face of the covenant cast over all people, and the vail that is spread over all nations.”

When the covering under which the nations now stand, rolls away, then shall they find themselves in the open — vulnerable to “wind” and “storm.” Yes, when the veil which now hangs over all peoples of earth, is pulled down, then shall they see that which they cannot now see. And what then?–

Isa. 25:8-10 — “He will swallow up death in victory; and the Lord God will wipe away tears from off all faces; and the rebuke of His people shall He take away from off all the earth: for the Lord hath spoken it. And it shall be said in that day, Lo, this is our God; we have waited for Him, and He will save us: this is the Lord; we have waited for Him, we will be glad and rejoice in His salvation. For in this mountain shall the hand of the Lord rest, and Moab shall be trodden down under Him, even as straw is trodden down for the dunghill.”

To make these great events possible, not only the ones who at that time rule the land, but Moab, too, we see, shall be trodden down. And who could Moab be if not the Arabs who now lay heavy claim to the land of Palestine? Soon the world will find that God has not forsaken the earth, and that God is master of the situation.

Isa. 25:11, 12 — “And he shall spread forth His

Timely Greetings, Vol. 2, No. 5, page 4

hands in the midst of them, as He that swimmeth spreadeth forth His hands to swim: and He shall bring down their pride together with the spoils of their hands. And the fortress of the high fort of thy walls shall He bring down, lay low, and bring to the ground, even to the dust.”

These verses hold the fact before us that it matters not what kind of fortification men may devise, such shall nevertheless be brought down as a straw when the Lord manifests His power. Having now clearly seen this wonderful Bible Truth, let it be you to say:

Isa. 25:1 — “O Lord, Thou art my God; I will exalt Thee, I will praise Thy name; for Thou hast done wonderful things; Thy counsels of old are faithfulness and truth.”

Here we are shown that as a result of this revealed Truth, some will truly accept the Lord of the Bible as their God, and will pledge to exalt Him and ever to praise His wonderful name because they see that He has done wonderful things. His counsels of old will they not turn down because they will know from experience that His counsels are faithfulness and Truth. They will from personal experience know God’s power and say:

Isa. 25:2, 3 — “For Thou hast made of a city an heap; of a defenced city a ruin: a palace of strangers to be no city; it shall never be built. Therefore shall the strong people glorify Thee, the city of the terrible nations shall fear Thee.”

The city of this verse must be the one first mentioned in Isaiah 24:

Timely Greetings, Vol. 2, No. 5, page 5

“The city of confusion is broken down: every house is shut up, that no man may come in. There is a crying for wine in the streets; all joy is darkened, the mirth of the land is gone. In the city is left desolation, and the gate is smitten with destruction. When thus it shall be in the midst of the land among the people, there shall be as the shaking of an olive tree, and as the gleaning grapes when the vintage is done.

“They [those who are not shaken down] shall lift up their voice, they shall sing for the majesty of the Lord, they shall cry aloud from the sea. Wherefore glorify ye the Lord in the fires, even the name of the Lord God of Israel in the isles of the sea. From the uttermost part of the earth have we heard songs, even glory to the righteous [as a result, there shall be converts from the four corners of the earth].

“But I said, My leanness, my leanness, woe unto me! the treacherous dealers have dealt treacherously; yea, the treacherous dealers have dealt very treacherously. Fear, and the pit, and the snare, are upon thee, O inhabitant of the earth.” Isa. 24:10-17.

The following quotation from the Spirit of Prophecy adds light to these verses:

“I saw jets of light shining from cities and villages, and from the high places and the low places of the earth. God’s word was obeyed, and as a result there were memorials for Him in every city and village. His truth was proclaimed throughout the world.” — Testimonies, Vol. 9, pp. 28 and 29.

Isa. 26:1 — “In that day shall this song be sung

Timely Greetings, Vol. 2, No. 5, page 6

in the land of Judah; We have a strong city; salvation will God appoint for walls and bulwarks.”

The song for the majesty of the Lord is therefore to be sung in the Promised Land, and there will the saints have a city that cannot be shaken down, for it is to have salvation for walls. Then it shall be said:

Isa. 26:2 — “Open ye the gates, that the righteous nation which keepeth the Truth may enter in.”

Here is taught that all this takes place in a day of salvation, in a day that the gates can be opened for a righteous nation to enter in. Yes, a whole nation, of such as should be saved, not a sinner among them, shall then respond to the call, “Come out of her My people, that ye be not partakers of her sins, and that ye receive not of her plagues.”

Isa. 26:3, 4 — “Thou wilt keep him in perfect peace, whose mind is stayed on Thee: because he trusted in Thee. Trust ye in the Lord forever: for in the Lord Jehovah is everlasting strength.”

Although throughout the years of history nations have developed great power, yet not one has retained that power forever. But we are here reassured that those who trust in the Lord Jehovah shall have eternal peace and everlasting strength.

Isa. 26:5-10 — “For He bringeth down them that dwell on high; the lofty city, He layeth it low; He layeth it low, even to the ground; He bringeth it even to the dust. The foot shall tread it down, even the feet of the poor, and the steps of

Timely Greetings, Vol. 2, No. 5, page 7

the needy. The way of the just is uprightness: Thou, most upright, dost weigh the path of the just. Yea, in the way of Thy judgments, O Lord, have we waited for Thee; the desire of our soul is to Thy name, and to the remembrance of Thee. With my soul have I desired Thee in the night; yea, with my spirit within me will I seek Thee early: for when Thy judgments are in the earth, the inhabitants of the world will learn righteousness. Let favour be shewed to the wicked, yet will he not learn righteousness: in the land of uprightness will he deal unjustly, and will not behold the majesty of the Lord.”

These verse plainly tell us that when the judgments of God fall upon the earth, the righteous minded will learn righteousness; but the unrepentant sinners will not learn righteousness regardless what is done for them. And this is why they are to be barred from the congregation of the righteous. The righteous, however, even now feel the Lord’s mighty hand and painfully they declare:

Isa. 26:11 — “Lord, when Thy hand is lifted up, they will not see: but they shall see, and be ashamed for their envy at the people; yea, the fire of Thine enemies shall devour them.”

Indeed, when God’s hand is lifted up to deliver His people, the wicked will not see it. But after the righteous are delivered, the wicked will clearly see and envy, but it shall be to their shame and too late to do them any good. Even now while “the latter rain” is falling, the self-righteous who imagine that they have need of nothing, are either running away from it or pulling their raincoats over their heads. The seekers of righteousness, though, come out in

Timely Greetings, Vol. 2, No. 5, page 8

the open. Thus they learn to say–

Isa. 26:12 — “Lord, Thou wilt ordain peace for us: for Thou also hast wrought all our works in us.”

This can be said only by those who allow the Lord to perform His work in their hearts, so that they may praise Him:

Isa. 26:13-16 — “O Lord our God, other lords beside Thee have had dominion over us: but by Thee only will we make mention of Thy name. They are dead, they shall not live; they are deceased, they shall not rise: therefore hast Thou visited and destroyed them, and made all their memory to perish. Thou hast increased the nation, O Lord, Thou hast increased the nation: Thou art glorified: Thou hadst removed it far unto all the ends of the earth. Lord, in trouble have they visited Thee, they poured out a prayer when Thy chastening was upon them.”

These verses declare that Israel of the promises, not the unbelieving Jew, have increased in number since having been removed from their land, since having been scattered to the ends of the earth. While this chastening (being driven away from their land) is still upon them, they pour out prayer and say:

Isa. 26:17, 18 — “Like as a woman with child, that draweth near the time of her delivery, is in pain, and crieth out in her pangs; so have we been in Thy sight, O Lord. We have been with child, we have been in pain, we have as it were brought forth wind; we have not wrought any deliverance in the earth; neither have the inhabitants of the world fallen.”

Timely Greetings, Vol. 2, No. 5, page 9

Here is shown that the eyes of the penitent are to be opened; they are to see themselves as God sees them, and confess that they have heretofore failed in their efforts, that they have travailed, have been in pain, but have brought forth only “wind,” as it were, while the impenitent think that they themselves are rich and increased with goods, are doing a great deed, and are in need of nothing.

Yes, the church may now boast of her achievements, or her so-called large membership, but not long hence will she, too, discover that she has failed to finish her work, that the world is still destroying the earth, that her people are unsaved and that rather than having brought forth salvation, she has brought forth nothing but “wind.”

“In the mighty sifting soon to take place, we shall be better able to measure the strength of Israel. The signs reveal that the time is near when the Lord will manifest that his fan is in his hand, and he will thoroughly purge his floor.” — Testimonies, Vol. 5, pg. 80.

Isa. 26:19 — “Thy dead men shall live, together with My dead body shall they arise. Awake and sing, ye that dwell in dust: for thy dew is as the dew of herbs, and the earth shall cast out the dead.”

Not only the living, but the dead also shall be gathered into the “strong city.” We already hear the Lord pleading with us all, saying:

Isa. 26:20 — “Come, My people, enter thou into thy chambers, and shut thy doors about thee: hide thyself as it were for a little moment, until the indignation be overpast.”

Timely Greetings, Vol. 2, No. 5, page 10

This plea shows that we are approaching the time of trouble and that God is anxious to have us under cover. The wise will hear Him and will accept the chambers, the protection He provides for them.

Isa. 26:21 — “For, behold, the Lord cometh out of His place to punish the inhabitants of the earth for their iniquity: the earth also shall disclose her blood, and shall no more cover her slain.”

All these truths which God is now bringing to our attention, point to one thing: That the great and terrible day of the Lord is at hand, that He is soon to manifest His power and shake the earth so that everything that cannot be shaken may stand. Are you not glad, Brother, Sister, that God is giving you first opportunity to get ready for the day of God, to hold fast to His ever-increasing Truth?

The First Domino to Fall?

March 5, 2022

As we know in the domino trick, the first push of that first domino causes the other dominos to be affected and ultimately they all come crashing down. Recently the world saw the Russian army invade Ukraine. The main stream media, predictably began their analysis of the ” how and why” of it. But can we really trust them to be accurate, to give the true unbias account of the FACTS?

Well do you remember Saddam Hussien and his store pile of “weapons of mass destruction”? Many of us do, and we subsequently learned it was all baloney, a concoction of lies and falsehoods to prepare the masses for the Globalist’s invasion of a sovereign country. Thousands were killed on a false premise!

Satan as we know has been allowed to run the world to a large degree ever since his ploy in the garden worked. And as such, being the “father of lies” has led his workers down that same path–lies and falsehoods.

Our King says, “You belong to your father, the devil, and you want to carry out your father’s desires. He was a murderer from the beginning, not holding to the truth, for there is no truth in him. When he lies, he speaks his native language, for he is a liar and the father of lies “(John 8:44).

“Be sober, be vigilant; because your adversary the devil, as a roaring lion, walketh about, seeking whom he may devour: Resist him, steadfast in the faith, knowing that the same sufferings are experienced by your brotherhood in the world.” (1 Peter 5:8-9)

Indeed many people will suffer from this war, instigated by the arch-enemy of souls. But the question is —
Is this that first domino to fall that will ultimate in the great world war predicted in God’s word?

“Behold, the day of the Lord cometh, and thy spoil shall be divided in the midst of thee.

For I will gather all nations against Jerusalem to battle; and the city shall be taken, and the houses rifled, and the women ravished; and half of the city shall go forth into captivity, and the residue of the people shall not be cut off from the city.

Then shall the Lord go forth, and fight against those nations, as when he fought in the day of battle.

And his feet shall stand in that day upon the mount of Olives, which is before Jerusalem on the east, and the mount of Olives shall cleave in the midst thereof toward the east and toward the west, and there shall be a very great valley; and half of the mountain shall remove toward the north, and half of it toward the south.

And ye shall flee to the valley of the mountains; for the valley of the mountains shall reach unto Azal: yea, ye shall flee, like as ye fled from before the earthquake in the days of Uzziah king of Judah: and the Lord my God shall come, and all the saints with thee.

And it shall come to pass in that day, that the light shall not be clear, nor dark:

But it shall be one day which shall be known to the Lord, not day, nor night: but it shall come to pass, that at evening time it shall be light.” (Zech 14:1-7)

So we must be watchful as to what is really happening with this war. To that end, we want to show you a video report that Kim Iverson from Hill.TV has made about the “back story” you are not being told about the real how and why Russia has invaded Ukraine.

Ultimately the Lord is pulling the strings on this but we thought it’d be good to see the real reasons (back story) for that attack. Be blessed!
