Ordinarily the concepts that are taught concerning the Books of Daniel and Revelation are all bad, negative, tribulation, hardship, persecution, murder, martyrdom, the antichrist, the false prophet, the beast, everything that would be frightening to an individual. This is generally the way the Book of Revelation is presented. It's ordinarily taught that from chapter four and verse one on is all crammed into a short period of seven years called the Tribulation. This has become ingrained in the minds of so many Christian people and there are programs, seminars, videos, audiotapes, and workbooks that just go on and on concerning this concept. Men have been made millionaires by selling books with fictitious accounts of the Book of Revelation. But I want to be honest with you, that as we approach this book there have been some great minds that have gone on before us to help us understand this book. Currently there are three popular viewpoints, the preterist view, the historicist view, the futurist view. Follow us through this often misunderstood area of Bible prophecy.

What is Your Relationship to Babylon?
TIH 527

Thank you once again for joining us here on Truth in History. In our series of Revelations that we are presently studying, we are in the nineteenth chapter and we have entitled this, this program "What is Your Relationship With Babylon?" I pray that you are rejoicing over its downfall. I hope you're not grieving over its downfall. I hope you are rejoicing over its downfall. In Revelation nineteen verse one, "And after these things I heard a great voice of people much people in heaven, in heaven that is in heavenly places with a heavenly mentality saying Hallelujah." I want to mention something about this word Hallelujah. Now in the New Testament to my knowledge this is the only place where the word Hallelujah is spelled out in this form and scholars tell us that this is the Greek form starting with an A, A-l-l-e-l-u-i-a, Hallelujah. If you look it up in Strong's Concordance, it will say it means Hallelujah and you notice the spelling of the word Hallelujah on the very end, the last syllable of the word Hallelujah is J-A-H. Now turning to the book of Psalms, in Psalms sixty eight the translators let stand, instead of translating it the Lord, they let stand the original name and they spelled it J-A-H. Now to my understanding there was no "J" in the Hebrew language but it should be a "Y" so it is says, "Sing unto God, sing praises to his name. Exalt him that rideth upon the heavens by his name." In the King James says jah or J-A-H which should be pronounced Y-A-H or Ya. So it says rejoice before him. So when we say Hallelujah in whatever language I understand people, Christians in China or South America or wherever and in Europe they still used this same word and pronounce it the same way Hallelujah. We're saying Hail to Ya, hail, praise, worship, adoration to him whose name is Yah or Yahweh. So we're talking about the covenant God of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob because the name Ya or Yahweh is that name by which he revealed himself to Israel in the Old Testament starting with Abraham, Isaac and Jacob and the twelve sons and the whole family of Israel. So he, he is portraying himself as a Covenant-Making God and a Covenant-Keeping God. So in Revelation nineteen it says Yahweh saying much ... praise, honor, adoration to Yahweh, Hallelujah. And this is used in verse one. It's also used in verse three. It is used in verse four and used in verse six. It's used four times. Now this is the first time that it's used in the New Testament and it's very significant that it used at this point in the scriptures because Hallelujah is actually a term that is used both in the Old Testament and in the New Testament in the overthrow of God's enemies. So when we say Hallelujah we can say Hallelujah because he saved us, he healed us, he provides for us, he fills us with his Spirit, for his Word, for the material blessings that we have, but in context of scripture Hallelujah is Hallelujah because God is overthrowing his enemies. God is overthrowing his enemies. This is a term that we should use in praise, adoration unto the God of heaven in such a way and in full meaning. In other words, hail to Ya you are overcoming, you're overthrowing your enemies in the earth. Psalm 104 verse thirty five, "Let the sinners be consumed out of the earth and let the wicked be no more. Now these were words spoken by the inspiration of the Holy Ghost because the writer Peter tells us all scripture is given by inspiration for holy men of God spake as they were moved by the Holy Ghost. I want to read this again, Psalm 104:35, "Let the sinners be consumed out of the earth and let the wicked be no more. Bless thou the Lord oh my soul, Praise ye the Lord." Or hail to the Lord and this is translated Hallelujah. This is the first time to my knowledge this phrase is used in the Bible in the Old Testament and it's equivalent to the term Hallelujah so when the writer was inspired, when the writer of this Psalm 104 was inspired to use that term Praise Yahweh or praise to God or Hail to Yah, it was in conjunction with his cry that the sinners be consumed out of the earth and the wicked be no more. Now we can redefine God to fit our week, our perverted, our pansy religion but it doesn't change his nature. It's just a redefinition to pacify the people that have itching ears and whose teachers have itching ears. But let God be God. Let God be God. God is not a sissy. Churches, some ministries have pictured him as just a week, ... loving, just all loving, lovey-dovey, one who wants to just excuse everything we do, pat us on the head, give us a lollipop, a religious lollipop, make us feel satisfied in our sin. No, the Lord's first attribute of his character is holiness and holiness is a love for righteousness and a hatred for iniquity, a love of righteous and a hatred for iniquity. And if he rewards righteousness then he must punish iniquity. And we see this in the book of Revelation. The Lord is in the process now I believe of overthrowing Babylon. It's not just going to be a one hour or one day event. But here in Revelation nineteen and I realize folks that I'm going rather slowly because I want you to get the impact of the nature of a Holy God, to feel the importance of letting scripture speak for itself without redefining scripture, without redefining the nature of God. You see when men, when I say men, I mean preachers and theologians, when men lose the vision of the holiness of God they immediately begin to redefine sin. I want to say that again. When preachers, theologians, saints, Christians lose their vision, a Biblical vision of the holiness of God they automatically begin to redefine sin and in their redefining they excuse sin. They soften sin. They, they make it where it's not so bad. Revelation nineteen, why is this company, this righteous company in heavenly places saying hail to Ya, salvation, glory, honor, power unto the Lord our God? Verse two, "For true and righteous are his judgments for he hath judged the great whore. He hath judged the great whore which did corrupt the earth with her fornication and he hath avenged the blood of his servants at her hand."

I want to remind each one that we are offering on this program our book for twelve dollars, a twelve dollar gift to this ministry, the book entitled "The Book of Revelation from an Israelite and Historicist Standpoint" and this book doesn't answer all the questions otherwise it would be that thick but it gives a good outline of the book of Revelation and if you've ever wondered what is or what are the different views of interpretation, now I realize that on the, on the prophecy oriented programs you're only getting one interpretation and that's the futuristic approach. The Christian market is bombarded with the futuristic approach of the book of Revelation. That is ... Revelation 4:1 is the rapture and everything after that is, is the great tribulation and a rebuilding of a Jewish temple and all those things that cannot be proven by scripture and that's the interpretation that is so popular and so rewarding with monetary value but there's other interpretations. There's four different interpretations of the book of Revelation. All four of them have validity. The number one view that I've listed here is the Spiritualist view. Also number two is the Preterist view. What is the Preterist view? What is the Historicist view? And what is the Futurist view? And I've drawn up some charts to help explain what are the three different views. There's four but only three have a chart, the Preterist view, the Historicist view, and the Futurist view. And I think that this would be a great addition to your library and to your understanding of the book of Revelation and as you order this book I will put in free of charge this chart entitled "The Reformation of Israel in the West." This is an eye opener and you will not find a map like this anywhere else to my knowledge with an explanation on the back of what the map shows on the front and we'll put that in with no extra charge because I am interested folks, in case you haven't figured it out yet, I am interested in truth not money. I am interested in speaking truth, sharing truth. I am not interested in amassing unto myself millions of dollars. It's impossible for me to do that any way. That's not in me. I'm not interested in big headquarters buildings and a big colonial home with quarter of a mile of driveway and swimming pools and all such things as that. If you work for that and you have that, God bless you. But what is important to the Lord? It's His Word. That's the treasure that we should hold in our hearts and in our minds.

So back to Revelation nineteen it tells us here in Revelation 19:2 the reason why this company of saints is rejoicing. "For true and righteous are God's judgments." He prophesied of judgment in the Old Testament and elsewhere in the New Testament, he prophesied and now they're coming true. They are coming from. They're coming to pass. True and righteous are his judgments. They are fair. You know the Lord said in ... Revelation eighteen he said come out of her my people. Now the people that are not the Lord's people is not going to come out of Babylon. Well what is Babylon?  You can define it different ways but Babylon is political, it's economic and it's religious, mainly three aspects of Babylon. The military part would come under political. The industrial part of the industrial complex would come under the economic system and then there's a religious system and this religious system that we see in the earth today folks is not of God. I see that this series is going to be longer than anticipated but turning to Matthew chapter thirteen and verse thirty one, Jesus gives us a parable of the size and the growth of his kingdom, yes his kingdom. But when the Lord has a kingdom in the earth among the true Israel people and the true Israel nations but the vultures have moved in. I hope that you feel my passion in this series. We have been taken over. The Babylonian army of wicked people, ungodly, iniquitous people with their ungodly systems have taken over. Every form of government, regardless of what it is, if it's not a theocratic form of government, it's a sorry substitute for governing the Lord's people. There's the oligarchy, plutocracy. There's even democracy. Our leaders keep rejoicing in this term that we're transporting democracy around the world and that's the last thing we ought to give them. Even the republican form of government has, is corrupt. There's totalitarianism. There's communism. There's evil monarchies. There's socialism. None of them is ordained of God. None. There's only one form of God-ordained government and that's theocracy where the Word of God is paramount, where the Word of God governs and God gave us a constitution. It's right back here in the Old Testament commonly called the Law of God given to Moses. It has the constitution. It has judgments, statutes and moral commandments but we have thrown those out. And it's not the politicians and the professors that have thrown them out. It's first the preachers that have thrown out the law of God, rules for governing the nation. They have thrown them out and said the law is totally done away with. The part of the law that was done away with, that was nailed to the cross of Christ, were the ordinances, where to worship how to worship, when the worship, sacrificial laws, laws of offerings, all that was done away with, fulfilled in Christ. But what about the moral laws? What about the laws of sanitation, the laws of war, penal laws, how to punish the criminals? We reward them. The law of God punishes them. The laws of retribution, the laws to make restitution for loss? These, these laws still stand.

But anyway in Matthew chapter thirteen, another parable, verse thirty one, "Another parable put he forth unto them saying the kingdom of heaven is like to a grain of mustard seed which is a man took and sowed in his field which indeed is the least of all seeds but when it is grown it is the greatest among herbs and becometh a tree so that the birds of the air come and lodge in the branches thereof." What is Jesus telling us? That when he established his covenant and with his people in his kingdom in the Old Testament it was very small, just in the, in the life of Abraham, then Isaac, then Jacob, then the twelve sons and their children, and it became a great kingdom. But guess what?  The vultures came and lodged in the branches. That's what we have in America today. We have the vultures that have come to this Christian culture, that has come to this Christian civilized nation, and they came early on and they brought their wicked ideas. They brought their denial of the Lord Jesus Christ and what religion was here early after the pilgrims and the Puritans, they brought their religion. Set up there synagogues denying of the Deity of the Lord Jesus Christ and denying that he was the Son of God and they still deny it but yet we hail them as God's chosen people. Preachers are soliciting support for them, financial and moral support, when really they deny our Savior, our healer, our Comforter, our coming King. They deny his Deity, and Islam, they deny his Deity but yet we have allowed those people to come in. That's what Jesus is talking about. The vultures are now in the branches. We have allowed the international bankers to come into. That's all part of Babylon, you see political, economic and religious, the sign on big billboards is "In God we Trust." Well, which God are they talking about? The God of Judaism, humanism, the God of perverted Christianity, the God of Islam, are they talking about Alla? Are they talking about Buddha, or Shinto, or some other religion or voodoo. What are they talking about? That's why our God has a name. Our Savior his name is the Lord Jesus Christ. Our God, Yahweh Sabaoth is portraying himself in Revelation nineteen as the one that's going to crush the head of the serpent and to overthrow the Babylonian system. And folks I pray that what I say on these programs in this series entitled 'What is Your Relationship to Babylon?" challenges you to take an account of what you really love and what you really hate. Love righteousness and hate iniquity. God bless you until next time.



Part 51



What is Your Relationship to Babylon?
TIH 528

Welcome once again to Truth in History program as we share with you the Word of God and it's a privilege that we have in this country to go on the airwaves without harassment from the authorities. Sometimes we're harassed by other Christians but  to go on the airwaves and to preach the gospel and to speak freely what we believe. And there is some criticism and some rebuttal from individuals and even in the past networks that have contacted me, not this network but others, and would not allow me to say certain things. But it's a wonderful privilege to have the Bible, the King James Bible, and to be able to speak the word of God freely and to exercise our privilege and our right to free religion, free, freedom of speech and it's a privilege for me to come into your home and I pray that you will be blessed by our coming in and sharing with you and being honest, speaking freely. And just to address one thing that some people have wondered about and that is they have asked me several people have asked me why I don't ask for money. Well I'm going to let the Lord Jesus Christ supply my needs and the needs of this ministry without me asking. Long story made short. And I just commit these things unto God, the expense of the recording, the broadcasting, and a host of other expenses and I just said Lord your Word Philippians 4:19, "My God shall supply all of your needs according to his riches in glory by Christ Jesus" and just to let you know how I feel towards the expenses and offerings and the Lord has always been faithful. And I want to say thank you very much to everyone that has helped support this program and this ministry. Thank you very much and may the Lord bless you and increase your goods and add to your bounty for your faithfulness to him. We are in the book of Revelation chapter number nineteen and we're going rather slowly and I realize that because this is a very crucial truth that is found in this book and in this chapter. And in previous programs we talked about the word Hallelujah and briefly the word Hallelujah ending with the syllable "yah," Hallelujah is Hail to Yah or Yahweh or Praise to Yah. And it's a word that was first used in the Old Testament under the king, under in King James language Praise the Lord or Praise ye the Lord. And it was in Psalm 104 first used in conjunction with the overthrow of the enemies of God. And here it is in Revelation nineteen first used in conjunction with the overthrow of God's enemies. So it's a word that we can use to say Hallelujah, Babylon is coming down. Babylon is on its way down and we rejoice over the fact that God is judging the great whore.

Now in verse number two of Revelation nineteen John gives us the reason why all this rejoicing by this heavenly company. "For true and righteous are his judgments," that's God's judgments, "For he hath judged the great whore." Why is Babylon called a whore? And it's rather strong language I realize and it can be abusive language. It can be somewhat abrasive I should say to use the term whore. Well a whore is one who sells her body for profit. It's one that takes that which is the most precious, her physical body which Paul said is the temple of the Holy Ghost. If you're a saint, if you're a Christian, your body is the temple of the Holy Ghost. But a whore will take that gift of God, that treasure in earthen vessel, her physical body and sell it for profit to anybody who wants to pay. And the Lord Jesus in speaking to John and John recording these words says that he is judging the great whore. The great whore is the Babylonian system. And as I mentioned before it's made up of the political, economic and a religious system that have combined together. In other words politics and religion, religion with politics, economics with religion and politics, that's what controls this worldly system that we call the Babylonian system. God is judging that and it's an illegitimate union. That's what a whore engages in, an illegitimate union. Now that whore being a female could have proper, decent relations with one man, her husband in the natural. That would be alright but when she sells her body to anybody who will pay then she comes under the definition of a whore. And God hates illegitimate unions. He hates illegitimate unions that which he never ordained to be mixed with one another whether it be different, ... this multicultural different races coming together with interracial marriage, that's not ordained of God. Mixing of the religions, it's not ordained of God. Mixing of different godly principles with ungodly principles, that's not ordained of God. When the church, any church, a local church or a denomination begins to incorporate ungodly, unscriptural, non-Christian principles then they are allowing a whorish spirit to take over in their, in their church. So this is pretty strong language and it may upset some of the viewers of this program but my job, my commission, my mission is to speak the truth of God, not to be a politician soliciting votes to be elected to a position. Let the politicians do that. Preachers, do not suppose to be concerned with popularity. That's not their calling. They're  supposed to be the oracle, the oracles of God speaking the truth without fear or favor to any, the high, the low, the rich, the poor and without the motive of gain. Now the Judas spirit, the Judas syndrome, Judas Iscariot, has crept into many ministries and into many churches. Well, what is the Judas syndrome? Simply this, I quote "Turning the anointing into cash under the pretense of helping the poor." unquote - That's what the Judas syndrome really is and it shows. Jesus said that in when Judas wanted to sell that ointment and give it, the money to the poor, John wrote it's not because he wanted to give it to the poor, it's because he was a thief.

This whorish spirit is a religious, political, economic, military, philosophical, educational complex. It has literally taken over our government, our public school system from one to twelve, the institutions of higher learning, the Ivy League universities. It has taken over think tanks. It has taken over our politicians. It has taken over our courts. It has taken over mainly our pulpits and God hates it. And you know when the Lord Jesus Christ returns to this earth to possess his kingdom you know that he's going to overthrow the religious system is much as he is going to overthrow the political system because it has become a whorish spirit. It says that he has judged the great whore. Now in Revelation seventeen we read this in verse number one. "And there came one of the seven angels which had the seven vials and talked with me saying unto me come hither I will show unto thee the judgment of the great whore that sits upon many waters." And then in verse number two. "With whom the kings, okay that's the political aspect, of the earth have committed fornication." Kings, that involves rulership of nations with this religious system and we know what that was historically. Just check out the history of the Roman Catholic Church. Committing fornication with nations she claimed she was the body of Christ, the kingdom of Christ, the church, but look at their involvement in military action, economic action, political action and activity with the nations. We all know this. We need not go back and give specific examples of this in history. Everyone knows this. "With whom the kings of the earth have committed fornication and the inhabitants of the earth have been made drunk with the wine of her fornication." Fornication is an illegitimate union and it denotes uncleanness, moral uncleanness. If you find a person committing fornication that is moral uncleanness. We may as well say what it is. It's moral filth and that's what this great whorish system has been doing is making the people drunk, in a stupor to control the masses of people. Verse three, "So he carried me away in the spirit into the wilderness and I saw a woman sit upon a scarlet colored beast." A woman in scripture in this typology is denoting false religion, false pretending to be the real thing. And it says "Full of names of blasphemy having seven heads and ten horns. The woman was arrayed in purple and scarlet color decked with gold and precious stones and pearls having a golden cup in her hand full of the abominations and filthiness of her fornication," of her illegitimate union and her moral uncleanness, "and upon her forehead was a name written Mystery Babylon the Great." And it says she was a mother,  the mother of harlots and abominations of the earth.

Now this wicked evil traditional historical religion that was set up in Rome not long after the apostolic days has daughters and the daughter, daughters are referred to as harlots, not much better than the mother. And I want to ask you a question. And I have asked myself the question. The Holy Ghost has challenged me. Are you in a harlot system? Oh, you say no I, I, I wouldn't do anything like that. I wouldn't be involved in anything like that. Well, it's very deceptive. The Word says that she made the people drunk or in a stupor to lose control mental and spiritual control of themselves and you get so wrapped up in this harlot system and it can even be a church or denomination. I'm not going to tell anyone to leave your church. That's not my right to do that but the Holy Ghost does. Because in chapter eighteen, "Now I heard another voice from heaven, this is verse four, "saying come out of her my people that ye be not partakers of her sins and that ye receive not of her plagues." In other words if you support a harlot church system you're going to receive part of her plagues and you're going to receive part of her sins. You're partaker of her sins. If you help finance a Babylonian church system, come out is the only thing I can say based upon Revelation eighteen four, come out. You say, well where would I go to church? People have called me up, many many people have called me up, and said we have quit church. There's no substance there. It's worldliness. The mus, music is jungle music, rock 'n roll. The music is, they've, they've forgotten the sacred hymns of the church and they've patterned the music and the beat after the world and they have gone after system, just reading books and reading some man's book how to preach a sermon for forty Sundays. We need men of God to stand in the pulpits without fear or favor and expose the Babylonian system and even the religious part of it.

I would like to encourage everyone to order this book that I have put together entitled "The Book of Revelation From an Israelite and Historicist Standpoint." And this we will send you this for an offering of twelve dollars and I think it will be a real benefit to your understanding of the book. It doesn't answer all the questions otherwise it would be that thick. And also we will send you without charge this chart. It says "The Reformation of Israel in the West." This is a real eye opener. It's a map. On the back is, there's an explanation concerning what's on the front and we want to encourage you to order this book. And we have priced it at twelve dollars which is barely above our cost and the shipping, the mailing. So we're not making any, it's not our purpose to make profit off of these books but to share with you so that you may read and study in your home by yourself and that's a small investment to the knowledge that you will receive from this material.

So here we are face-to-face with the word of God when it says that Babylon, the Babylonian system, is a whore and that the Babylonian system has daughters. And it makes people drunk or in a stupor, a mental spiritual stupor. It's like they're on drugs and they can't think and you try to share with them a truth out of God's Word. "Well, I can't, I can't, I can't, I can't believe that.  I've got to go run, I've got to go ask my preacher" because they're in bondage to that religious system and box that they have placed themselves in. I'd like to read a parable, a short parable in Matthew chapter thirteen and verse thirty three. "Another parable spake he unto them, talking about Jesus, the kingdom of heaven is likened unto leaven which a woman took and hid in three measures of meal till the whole was leavened." And this is the perversion of the kingdom. This is the perversion of the kingdom of God. In the parable just above it he talked about the kingdom as being small as a grain of mustard seed and it grew and became a large tree and the vultures, the, the birds of the air lodged in the branches, birds that shouldn't be there, that don't belong there, evil people, evil philosophies, evil religions. And in this once Christian nation just look at this religious pluralism that we have allowed in this nation. Now the perversion of this kingdom, it was a woman who took three of measures of leaven and hid them in three measures of meal. The three aspects of a kingdom, any kingdom, political, economic, religious. But this kingdom was perverted because leaven is representative of sin, corruption. So we have religious pluralism in this country. This country was once a Christian nation. This country was founded upon the Protestant faith. The pilgrims came over; they were Protestant, Christian, thoroughly Christian. The Puritans followed them. They were Protestant. And then later on different religions were allowed into this country. Different religions, I don't mean if different, of different persuasions of the Christian religion they were allowed like in Pennsylvania to begin with, but I'm talking about different religions, Judaism. Islam, Shinto, heathenism, voodooism, Buddhism, Hinduism, they're all in this nation and they all have quote "a right." But guess what? They're wanting to crowd out the Christian voice and the Christian principles by which this nation was established. We may as well admit it folks. We were told that Islam is a peaceful religion. Like one man said, "Yeah, right show me, after all the violence, a peaceful religion." Traditionally and historically everyone knows it was convert to Islam or off with your head. A peaceful religion but yet they are taken over in many different places and in different ways, in school boards and school systems and colleges, and different aspects of our society because this has become the big tree with wide branches. The vultures have come in. The vultures have come in and you apply that in any way that you feel so disposed. And politically, and the bankers are robbing us and keeping us in bondage but Jesus Christ is coming back to possess his kingdom and I pray that God will make us prepared so that we can rejoice when Babylon falls.


Part 52



What is Your Relationship to Babylon?
TIH 529

Thank you once again for joining me here on Truth in History as we return to our Bible study and honoring the Lord Jesus Christ as our prophet, our priest and our king. And as we begin I want to say that whatever I say or do in my life I want it to be Christ centered. I want this ministry to be Christ centered, to be a ministry that does not draw attention to the minister but draws attention to our Lord, our Savior, our Master, the Lord Jesus. And in this study of Revelation especially chapter nineteen when we see the nature of the Holy One revealed in wrath, it's still all about Jesus Christ. It's his wrath not ours. It's His plan not ours and I dare not try to change it or soft-pedal it. And what the Lord Jesus says to John while he was on the isle of Patmos, John recorded those words for our admonition, for our understanding and they're pretty sharp words. Some of them are quite clear, plain, blunt. Returning to our text Revelation nineteen and verse number two, "True and righteous are his judgments for he hath judged the great whore which did corrupt the earth." Now we must remember that the whorish, harlot Babylonian system is corrupted. It's corrupt and it corrupts everything that it touches. And this is what it says in verse two. "The Lord has judged the great whore for corrupting the earth with her ... of her illegitimate union or fornication." The Lord puts this in sexual symbology. The most sacred thing that God has given us in the earthly is a relationship with a spouse. And when you, when you're looking around for a spouse make sure it's a member of the opposite sex. Now I realize what our president and our vice president has said they would sanction same-sex marriage. That's part of the perversion. That's part of the corruption that has come into politics. They're politicians. Why should they be establishing moral standards? It's not their place. Moral standards are established by God and God alone and then preached by anointed men of God. God's ideas not man's ideas. So we have moral uncleanness corrupting the earth that's coming out of the whorish Babylonian system. And folks, I, I realize that I, I get stirred up. I get stirred up because look at the corruption, the debauchery, the evil, the organized rebellion and iniquity that you see coming out of Hollywood and out of the entertainment industries, absolute filth, and they're preying on the hearts and minds and the passions of the natural man because what are they perverting? They're perverting that which is the most sacred in a legitimate relationship, that, that amorous relationship between a man and a woman, a husband and a wife, and they're playing on that and have corrupted that. And look at your daytime talk shows are promoting homosexuality and interviewing these, these people who are feeling neglected, or, or discriminated against because they're not allowed to have equal rights in marriage with a partner of the same sex. And these talk show hosts are defending them. You see, and the secular education that our children are receiving in school, my, my, my. It's no wonder that little eight, that little boy in the eighth grade just recently took a gun to school shot himself, killed himself right there. Teachers are dressing like they're going to a skunk fight, immoral, immodest, teaching an alternate lifestyle. The Lord calls it an abomination. In the educational system and the political system even in the religious system.

But this is the second reason why God has judged the great whore and hath avenged the blood of his servants at her hand. So the Lord here in this verse Yahweh Sabaoth, the Lord of Armies is the avenger of blood. Wonder what that means? In Revelation chapter six, I want to just go back and review some passages very quickly in Revelation chapter six verses nine through eleven this principle of the ... avenging of blood. "And when he had opened the fifth seal I saw under the altar the souls of them that were slain for the Word of God, slain for the Word of God and for the testimony which they held and they cried with a loud voice saying how long Oh Lord holy and true." In other words, you're just, you're perfect in all your decisions and in your actions you're fair. Dost thou not judge and avenge our blood on them that dwell on the earth. That's the principal that God is keeping record of those that were slain for the Word of God and for the testimony of Jesus Christ. And on that system, that Babylonian system, whether it be political, religious or economic that have slain the righteous, God is going to avenge their blood on that evil system. They say that the Roman Church, historians, check the historians, they say they're guilty or it was guilty of sixty million martyrs. They say that Joseph Stalin maybe with some of the other dictators of the USSR combined, their list is also sixty million people. My friend, God is going to rectify the wrongs someday somehow. He's going to rectify the wrongs someday somehow and he's going to be just in doing so. They say Pol Pot, he was in Cambodia I think, one million people. The Chinese communist system have slain millions killed millions of Christians. Other regimes around the world and in history have killed millions maybe not all born-again Christians, but unfair, brutal massacres. You think God has not taken notice. So what about the United States? We don't kill Christians. No, we just made it legal according to the usurping power of the so-called Supreme Court in 1973 Roe versus Wade to kill our innocent unborn children. You think God is going to avenge their blood on this corrupt government? Yes he is. Yes he is. And politician that promote that and agree with it, politicians who refuse to fight it, they're part of it. God keeps accurate records. That's one example of the avenging of blood and then we go to chapter sixteen in Revelation and verse six. It says this, "For they have shed the blood of saints and prophets and thou hast given them blood to drink for they are worthy." You see, the Lord was avenging the blood of righteous saints and prophets that were slain. The Lord is keeping record.

Revelation seventeen and verse six, "And I saw the woman drunken with the blood of the saints and with the blood of the martyrs of Jesus. And when I saw her I wondered with great admiration." John said he saw this woman, this beastly false religious system. A woman in this context of scripture denotes a false religious system, counterfeit Christianity under whatever name it might go. "Drunken with the blood of the saints and with the blood of the martyrs of Jesus." Check history. See what's happened during the Dark Ages. You might say well why mention those things? Because God mentions those things. My heart, my spirit is stirred because of the injustice in this earth to all people, not just the Christians, but the injustices. Look at all those people over in China and Cambodia. Some of them were just political prisoners. They weren't killed for religious purposes. They were a, a perceived threat to the government so off with their head. We go to eighteen, chapter eighteen verse four, "Come out of her my people that you be not partakers of her sins and that ye receive not of her plagues. For her sins have reached unto heaven and hath remembered and God hath remembered her iniquities. Reward her even as she rewarded you." This is the principle of avenging. The Lord Jesus Christ is the avenger of blood. And double unto her double according to her works in the cup which she hath filled, fill to her double." That's God's idea, it's not my idea. And then in verse twenty Revelation eighteen, "Rejoice over her when Babylon falls," when this whorish, harlot, religious economic political military industrial complex falls. If you're a real saint of God, if you're an apostle, if you're a prophet in tune with the spirit of the, of Revelation, in tune with the Holy Ghost and in the spirit of John you will rejoice because God hath avenged her. God hath remembered and he is giving to Babylon double that she gave to his saints. It's quite a picture. I don't want to make it palatable and pretty.

If you have never received our magazine we would love to send you a sample copy of our magazine Truth in History. This is absolutely free. We will send this to you and we will continue to send it to you until you tell us to take your name off the list. A few do that. They don't like what we teach and that's okay. We're not mad at anybody because somebody calls, calls us up and leaves a nasty message on the phone. It's just a shame that so many people that call themselves Christians can be so nasty, be so harsh and set themselves up as the final judge to commit someone to the region of eternal damnation because they disagree with what they're hearing from the preacher on television and that not only goes for me but that goes for other ministries. Others have mentioned it also. People call up and they utter these proclamations of, of you're of the devil, you're a prophet of the devil and all that nonsense ... because we disagree with one or two of their pet doctrines. But that's okay. We carry on. Also I would like to encourage you to order this book we're teaching out of the book of Revelation and I've written this commentary "The Book of Revelation from an Israelite and Historicist Interpretation" and this can be yours for an offering of twelve dollars and that barely covers the cost of the book and the postage. And with that we will send you a copy of this map. It's a beautiful map en..., the title of it is "The Reformation of Israel in the West." This is an eye-opener. This would be worth the phone call or the letter to order the book and the map and on the back is an explanation of the map on the front. So I want to remind you to order this because it will be very helpful to your understanding. Thousands of people have ordered this book. And we've gotten back wonderful testimonies of how people have used this as a guideline in a group study and they have been richly blessed. We have sent this out to some prisoners and it has enlightened them also.

So here we are studying the book of Revelation, that book of the end time. It's really not just a book prophesying of events but it's the Revelation of Jesus Christ. In other words what we see in Revelation nineteen such as the avenging of blood principle, that is part of the Revelation of the Lord Jesus Christ. It's portraying his nature and I want to turn to II Kings chapter twenty one, II Kings twenty one. In verse number one it tells us the story of King Manasseh. He was the fourteenth King of the nation of Judah and he was the son of Hezekiah, a righteous King, a righteous man. And then this young man Manasseh takes over but he did not follow in the steps of his father. II Kings twenty one. We're talking about the avenging of blood. "Manasseh was twelve years old when he began to reign and reigned fifty and five years in Jerusalem and his mother's name was Hephzibah. And he did that which was evil in the sight of the Lord, after the abominations of the heathen." Apply this to the American civilization. We have not followed in the steps of our righteous forefathers but no we have adopted, the adopted the abominations of the heathen. "Whom the Lord cast out before the children of Israel. For he built up again the high places which Hezekiah his father had destroyed and he reared up altars for Baal, false gods, and made a grove, and did, as did Ahab King of Israel, and worshiped all the host of heaven and served them," humanism, mono, polytheism, any any God goes. "And he built altars in the house of the Lord of which the Lord said in Jerusalem will I put my name." He built false altars in God's house. "And he built altars for all the host of heaven in the two courts of the house of the Lord. And he made his son pass through the fire and observed times and used enchantments, you know astrology, and dealt with familiar spirits and wizards: he wrought much wickedness in the sight of the Lord to provoke him to anger. And he set a graven image of the grove that he had made in the house," sexual sins - it was a phallic worship, the worship of sex, that's what the groves was all about. "Of which the Lord said to David and to Solomon, in this house and in Jerusalem which I have chosen out of all the tribes of Israel will I put my name forever. Neither will I make the feet of Israel move any more out of the land which I gave their fathers, only if they will observe to do according to all that I have commanded them and according to the law that my servant Moses commanded them. But they hearkened not and Manasseh seduced them to do more evil than did the nations whom the Lord destroyed before the children of Israel." It was Manasseh the leadership of the nation that seduced the people to do evil. In other words the King excused the sin and made excuses for committing these abominable acts and he permitted the people to do that because he gave legality to sin. And that's what our Supreme Court has done. That's what the Congress has done. That's what the executive branch has done to legalize sin but verse sixteen, verse sixteen tells us something. "Moreover Manasseh shed innocent blood very much till he had filled Jerusalem from one end to another." America is filling the cup of iniquity with the blood of innocent aborted babies, making their sons pass through the fire, child sacrifice. And that's what abortion is, is sacrifice, child sacrifice for the pleasure of sin and sexual activity without proper responsibility. "Beside his sin wherewith he made Judah to sin in doing that which was evil in the sight of the Lord." He filled Jerusalem with innocent blood and that's what America has done with fifty million babies being aborted and its legal according to the corrupt courts of our nation. But it's not legal according to the laws of our God. It's immoral. Manasseh sinned by offering his children, made the children pass through the fire to  worship the God of Baalism. We're in for judgment in this country and I believe judgment has already started and God has sent us a message. He has sent us a message in this past, this last summer. Get ready. More judgment is on the way. But until then search the scriptures and find out if you hate what God hates and you love what God loves. Until next time, the Lord bless you.



Part 53



What is Your Relationship to Babylon?
TIH 530

Greetings everyone in the name of the Lord Jesus and welcome to Truth in History. Today we are continuing our Bible study found in Revelation chapter nineteen. And this chapter is rich with the nature of God coming through. It's rich with the attributes of the Almighty and we are going to let God be God, in his mercy and in his wrath. We're going to let God be God in his love and in his hate. You say well God doesn't hate.  God does hate. And even the Psalmist prayed Lord I hate your enemies. Well that doesn't go along, that concept does not go along with the week, sissified, emasculated religion that we have today. And this is what the Psalmist said. And this Psalm 139 was written by King David. He said "Do not I hate them Oh Lord that hate thee? Am not I grieved with those that rise up against thee? I hate them with perfect hatred, not just human hatred but a righteous hatred. I count them mine enemies." That is Psalm one thirty nine verses twenty one and twenty two. And God hates things and I think he expects us to hate things. In fact he said in the book of Hebrews, I'm turning there, Hebrews chapter one and he says in verses eight and nine, Hebrews one eight and nine, "But unto the Son he sayeth thy throne Oh God is forever and ever, a scepter of righteousness is the scepter of thy kingdom." Righteousness is right doing and right being. "Thou hast loved righteousness, here we go, and hated iniquity." The Bible tells us in the book of Mal-, in, in the, book of Malachi, "Jacob have I loved and Esau have I hated." Esau was that wicked one. Esau was the one who broke his parents' heart by going to a strange land and marrying the Hittite, married outside of his Hebrew people. He married outside of the Abrahamic family and God was displeased. And his parents were displeased he married Hittites. Well you might say well that only applies religiously of, a believer should not marry an unbeliever. Well that's true but Esau was not a believer and he married, he was an unbeliever marrying unbelievers but God was still displeased and it broke his parents' heart because he married outside of the will of God. We should marry, each person should marry within their own genetic heritage to maintain the integrity of each race. That's just one example. "But thou hast loved righteousness and hated iniquity. Therefore God even thy God hath anointed thee with the oil of gladness above thy fellows." So we see where the Lord hates iniquity. He hates Babylon. 

In Revelation nineteen and verse four, "And the four and twenty elders and the four beasts fell down and worshiped God that sat on the throne saying Amen and Hallelujah," Hail or Praise to Yah. And they said this, see this is twenty four elders representative of Old Testament Israel twelve tribes and the New Testament church twelve apostles. And in verse twenty of verse, of chapter eighteen he talks about apostles and prophets, same thing prophets of the Old Testament, apostles of the New Testament and they worshiped God after he had judged Babylon the great whore and had avenged the blood of his servants at her hand. So true Israel, Christian Israel rejoiced and worshiped God, not false Israel. Why do I mention that? Because there is a false Israel in the earth. "And a voice came out of the throne," verse five, "saying praise our God all ye his servants and ye that fear him both small and great, praise him, praise him." Verse six, "And I heard as it were the voice of a great multitude and as the voice of many waters and as the voice of mighty thunderings saying Hallelujah," Hail to Yah, Praise Yah, "for the Lord God Omnipotent reigneth, Hallelujah." Isn't that wonderful? "For the Lord God Omnipotent reigneth." That should be the cry of every true believer, not trying to succeed in this world. Oh you can be a success, make a good living, nothing wrong with that. You can have a good job and rise in the ranks of your company and whatever your hands find to do, do it with all your might. But our purpose as children of light, our goal, our whole passion of our existence as a child of God should be not anthropocentric towards us but theocentric-God centered not man-centered. "For the Lord God Omnipotent reigneth." That was the cry. That was the cry of this holy company of believers, this heavenly minded company of saints. Oh, that's beautiful! Thousands upon thousands upon millions no doubt this represents. In fact it was as the voice of many waters and mighty thunderings saying Hail to Yah. Babylon has been overthrown and the Lord God now reigneth on the earth as opposed to this false rulership and false reigning of Babylon.

These things stir me up friends because there is so much injustice in this earth, so much wickedness. So many of our young people, fathers and brothers and sons and daughters and mothers and sisters being killed in unjust wars. There's one on the TV not too long ago, nineteen-year-old girl, single, just graduated out of high school, in the Army goes to Afghanistan and in a matter of weeks comes back in a flag draped coffin. For what? To enrich the pockets of some money grubbing filthy lucre seeking industry or individual or some banker sitting in New York or Chicago or Bonn or Paris or London somewhere. That's unjust. The Bible tells us that righteousness exalts a nation but it also tells us this in Proverbs 14:34. "Sin is a reproach to any people," a reproach. It's a mockery. Sin is mocking us. Jeremiah told the people of Judah, it says your sins, your very sins are the ones that coming back on you. You sowed them, now you're reaping them. And that spiritual law in this natural world is whatsoever a man sows that shall he also reap. The same goes for a nation. Whatsoever our nation sows that's what we are going reap. Look what we have reaped. Look what we are reaping right now. But righteousness exalts a nation but sin is a reproach. It's a mockery. It's laughing in our face. Our daughters, our sons are being killed. They call it insider attacks from the Afghanies, the ones who we're trying to help. And we send the innocent, we send the young, the strong, killing off our youngsters because you see folks war is a rich man's game but a poor man's fight. And the rich, I don't mean if a man has a million dollars but it's the rich that control the world, that control nations with their finances. They don't care about our youth. And God is going to bring severe judgment upon us for allowing those people to control our congress and our courts, and our executive branch of government. But Revelation nineteen, these saints are rejoicing. And when the Lord comes, and he is coming, the Lord Jesus is coming and there's going to be a severe price to pay. We see an example or a description of his coming in Isaiah chapter sixty three verses one through six. This is the Messiah's proclamation against Edom and Edom or Esau being one and the same were the perpetual enemies of Israel in the Old Testament. So the Lord is uttering a proclamation against Edom. Isaiah sixty three begin with verse number one and I will read through verse six. "Who is this that cometh from Edom with dyed garments from Bozrah." Bozrah was the capital city of Edom. If you'll look on a Bible map, may be in the back of your Bible, it, Edom was located on the east side of the Jordan River south of Jerusalem. So it was, just take Jerusalem and go east across the Jordan River and they were across, here was Judah and here was Edom with the Jordan River between them. "This that is glorious in his apparel, traveling in the greatness of his strength. I that speak in righteousness, mighty to save." He is speaking in righteousness. Who could this be other than the Lord Jesus Christ? "Wherefore art thou red in thine apparel and thy garments like him that treadeth in the wine vat?" Stomping the grapes and the juice of the grapes representing the blood of the wicked has splashed upon his garments. "I have trodden the winepress alone and of the people there was none with me. For I will tread them in mine anger," you see Jesus Christ is coming back and He's angry. He's angry. "And trample them in my fury and their blood shall be sprinkled upon my garments and I will stain all my raiment. For the day of vengeance is in mine heart and the year of my redeemed is come." He's talking about two different classes of people, the redeemed his people the righteous and he's talking about the wicked. The redeemed shall be brought unto him and saved but the wicked, the vile, the unclean, the unrighteous, the iniquitous are going to be trampled by the feet of the Lord Jesus Christ. His heel is going to bruise the head of the serpent and I know that took place on Calvary but it's going to take place in reality once again in fulfillment to bruise the head of the serpent. Verse five, "And I looked and there was none to help and I wondered that there was none to uphold: therefore mine own arm brought salvation unto me and my fury it upheld me," or it supported. "And I will tread down the people in mine anger and make them drunk in my fury and I will bring down their strength to the earth." Now if there has ever been a historical event that would be the fulfillment of these verses, it would be in 70 A.D. It would be in 70 A.D. And this is a hard thing for many people to take. It's a very difficult thing for some people to admit that 70 A.D. and the destruction of the temple in the city of Jerusalem was of God. He just used the Romans to do it. But Isaiah sixty three is yet to take place in its finality.

Before we go any further in our teaching today I want to remind everyone that we have a magazine. If you do not receive our magazine we will be willing to send you a free copy, put you on the mailing list and send you a copy each issue until you tell us to take your name off. You could call and just say hey take my name off. No problem. Or write us a letter, no problem. But I would also encourage you to order this book "The Book of Revelation" that I have put together. It's a commentary on the book of Revelation called "From an Israelite and Historicist Interpretation" for an offering of twelve dollars to this ministry. We will be more than happy to send you this book. There are several charts that fold out in this book such as that go back here and there's some more charts on different aspects of the subject so it's well worth your offering to this ministry and with that we will send you free of charge a map entitled "The Reformation of Israel in the West." Very enlightening, very helpful and also on the back there's an explanation of the map that is printed on the, on the front and it's a beautiful red and blue on a white background and that will serve as a real teaching aid in knowing some great truths of scripture.

Now as I mentioned Isaiah sixty three if there was ever a historical event that took place it was 70 A.D. that would fit Isaiah sixty three but Isaiah sixty three is yet to take place in the future when Jesus Christ comes back in his fury, and, both in his power, his love, his glory but also in his fury. I want to read you a parable found in Matthew twenty one verse thirty three. "Hear another parable. There was a certain householder which planted a vineyard, hedged it round about, and digged a winepress in it, and built a tower, and let it out to husbandman and went into a far country. And when the time of the fruit drew near he sent his servants to the husbandman that they might receive the fruits of it. And the husbandmen took his servants, beat one, killed another, and stoned another. Again he sent other servants more than the first and they did unto them likewise. But last of all he sent unto them his son saying they will reverence my son. But when the husbandmen saw the son, that's the Lord Jesus Christ, they said among themselves this is the heir. Come, let us kill him and let us seize on his inheritance. And they caught him, cast him out of the vineyard and slew him. When the Lord therefore of the vineyard cometh, what will he do unto those husbandmen? They say unto him, he will miserably destroy those wicked men and will let out his vineyard unto other husbandmen which shall render him the fruits in their seasons. Jesus said unto them, he's talking to the Pharisees and the scribes and high priests, did ye never read in the scriptures the stone which the builders rejected the same is become the head of the corner. This is the Lord's doings and it's marvelous in our eyes. Therefore I say unto you, the kingdom of God shall be taken away from you and given to a nation bringing forth the fruits thereof. And whosoever shall fall on this stone shall be broken and on whomsoever it shall fall it will grind him to powder. And when the chief priests and Pharisees had heard his parables they perceived that he spake of them." They were smart enough to know that Jesus said you are going to kill the Son of God because he was the son in the parable. Jesus was comparing himself to the son of the householder and they killed him. And the Lord said what's going to happen. Bring those before me and slay them before me. They're miserably. They're miserable. Destroy them. They're wicked men and give his vineyard to another. And that's what happened in 70 A.D. When you reject the Son of God there are consequences to that Judah nation back there in 70 A.D. when the scribes and the Pharisees and the Sadducees and the chief priests and the Herodians made a final legal official declaration of rejection of Jesus Christ. The Lord gave them a generation to repent. He gave them thirty eight years to repent and they repented not. They did not accept his blood sacrifice. In fact they kept, they continued the, the animal sacrifice right up to the time of 70 A.D. when the Roman Army came in and destroyed them. And the Lord spoke of this in other places when the city's going to be surrounded, etc. There was a consequence and there's a consequence to the rejection of Jesus Christ in our nation today. Our government, many institutions of our civilization, our public school system, our universities, even some churches and other institutions of our society has totally rejected the Lord Jesus Christ, the entertainment industry. They tell me I don't watch the trash but they tell me that many movies are actually poking fun at Christ or his followers or the principles of righteousness. There is a consequence to rejecting the Lord of glory and that consequence is utter judgment and we are headed down that road. But have faith and hope. If you are a born again believer the Lord knows his own. He's going to protect his people in the time of his wrath in his judgment. God bless you until next time.


Part 54



What is Your Relationship to Babylon?
TIH 531

Once again I want to say thank you for everyone who has tuned into our program today and the Lord bless you richly bless you in all of his wonderful ways in which he blesses his people and I greet you in the name of the Lord Jesus. And I pray that this ministry this small ministry is a blessing to you and your family and I pray that it's, it's an enrichment in the Word of God. What else does a saint have in this world that is so rich, so wonderful other than the Word of God and the Spirit of God and members of the body of Christ. So we come together by means of television and we study the Word together. May the Lord richly bless each everyone of you and I appreciate every offering that has been sent for this ministry. We do not ask for money. What offerings are sent in here are voluntarily sent by the Lord laying it on the hearts of different people and we appreciate every amount. We have received several offerings of just three dollars, three dollars. One man sent seventeen cents, and others have sent a lot more than that. So we, we appreciate and respect everyone. And we have taken the questions and the calls of a lot of people and ... the vast majority of them are calls from people that have been blessed or have questions. And ever now and then we'll get a nasty call but that goes with the territory. Going back to Revelation chapter nineteen. It's a picture of the Lord overthrowing Babylon and the saints rejoicing. Oh, what a scene? The saints rejoicing. Rejoice ye holy apostles and prophets for the Lord God hath avenged you on earth. So we're down to verse number seven Revelation nineteen, And after this great cry of verses four and five and six, "Hallelujah for the Lord God Omnipotent reigneth." Then he says, "Let us be glad and rejoice and give honor to him for the marriage of the Lamb is come and his wife hath made herself ready." I'm not going to give a lot of explanation concerning the wife but the wife of God, the wife of the Lamb, the marriage of the lamb is come and his wife. So we know the Lord Jesus Christ has a wife. Who is the wife? And I want to say this and I know there's a big controversy in this area but in the book of Colossians it says this. Now there's ..., let me, let me make this comment first before I read the scripture.

What's the difference between the Lamb's wife and the Lamb's body? There is a difference but they, there is a, a merging of the two. The church is not the bride. You say how do you figure that? The church is the body. Colossians chapter one verse eighteen talking about Christ. He's before all things and by him all things consist. And then the writer says he is the head of the body the church. You see the body of Christ is his church. Verse twenty four, "Who now rejoice in my sufferings for you and fill up that which is behind the afflictions of Christ in my flesh for his body's sake which is the church." The church is the body of Christ. The Bride of Christ is national Israel but it's Christian Israel, not unbelieving Israel, not false Israel who rejects the Deity of Jesus Christ. It's Christian Israel redeemed, restored and prepared for marriage. We must understand these things if we're going to understand the overall plan of God and if we're going to understand Revelation twenty one and twenty two. We must believe. Well what is who is Christian Israel? Trace the path of the gospel the traditional path of the gospel. It left Palestine and it moved north and west into western Europe and the British Isles. And those people who are, who are our ancestors were Christianized because it was prophesied, it was prophesied that in the Old Testament that Israel would accept the Messiah. Well, the false Israel has not accepted the Messiah. But preachers are trying to force it. It's not working. In fact in this issue of the magazine I have listed several marks of true Israel. I've listed fifteen material blessings and thirteen spiritual blessings which are identification marks of true Israel, Christian Israel. That's the way the gospel came. That's the way the Israelites migrated north and west into western Europe, British Isles, North America, other parts of the world. You might say that sounds strange to me but that's just the way history has transpired and we cannot change history. We must be intellectually honest and accept history as it happened. So the Lord is going to restore his people, refine, restore, prepare, bring them back to him, redeem them and make them fit, national Israel fit for marriage. He married them once at Mount Sinai Exodus 24. He's going to marry them again. And this is what it says. "The wife hath made herself ready." You see we're not ready yet. Our people are not ready. "And to her was granted that she should be arrayed in fine linen, clean and white for the fine linen is the righteousness of saints." You see there's where righteousness is going to be national not just personal but national righteousness. There's going to be a righteous money system. There's going to be a righteous political system. It's going to be theocracy through and through government by God. I don't care what the liberals say, what the Christ haters say, what the Christ deniers say. Jesus Christ is coming to reign and he's going to reign and sit upon the throne of his father David. And that's not some earthly throne over in the Middle East somewhere and sit in a restored physical tabernacle. Look, the Lord destroyed five tabernacles and temples to bring us to the fact that this is a spiritual temple. It's a temple made not with the hands of men. I don't know why preachers can't get that through their head but they're trying to restore an old Judaized system out of the Old Testament. They're not even trying to restore a perfect Hebraic system but a Judaized system that rejected the son of God. They're making the gospel Jewish. They're making the Old Testament Jewish, making everybody in the Bible Jewish. And I guess if Abraham was Jewish then his Melchezidec had to be Jewish and Noah had to be Jewish and go all the way back to Adam. Adam had to be Jewish. So why isn't everybody in the world Jewish? That's how mixed up theology is today. "And he said unto me write blessed are they which are called unto the marriage supper of the Lamb and he said unto me these are the true sayings of God." It's going to be a marvelous time, absolutely unbelievable time. And it tells us in verse number ten, here is an unbelievable, fantastic experience that John, the apostle John the Revelator, experienced. "And I fell at his feet to worship him, this messenger, and he said unto me see thou do it not. I am thy fellow servant and of thy brethren that have the testimony of Jesus. Worship God for the testimony of Jesus is the spirit of prophecy." What is the true spirit of prophecy? It's the testimony concerning the Lord Jesus Christ. That is true prophecy.

If somebody gets up in your church whether through what they claim is the gift of prophecy or tongues and interpretation of tongues and if it doesn't glorify the Lord Jesus Christ and if it's not true to the Word, it's false. I don't care if it is tongues. There's been a lot of false tongues. There's people tried to surreptiously control other people through quote "tongues" or "prophecy." It's of the flesh. In fact if it's not of God it's either of the human spirit or Satanic spirit. But the true spirit of prophecy is testimony concerning the Lord Jesus Christ. Now going back being that we're, we're talking and speaking concerning nationally affairs, national affairs, excuse me, and nations that reject God. The Bible tells us the wicked shall be turned into hell in every nation that forgets God. Doesn't necessarily mean that it's going to be turned into that pit burning with fire and brimstone but it's going to go into the grave. God will destroy it in other words just like He destroyed nations in the past. He destroyed ancient Egypt. He destroyed ancient Ba..., Babylon, Medo Persia, Greece, Rome. How did he do it? He did it with a succeeding army. He used natural armies to destroy that nation. They became corrupt or were corrupt already. God will use somebody else to destroy them. Psalm chapter two, Why do the heathen rage? Why do the heathen, they're raging, and the people imagine a vain thing?  This is what's happened in our nation and around the world. Verse two, The kings of the earth, that's the top leaders, set themselves deliberately, in other words by deliberate design they set themselves and the rulers take counsel together against the Lord and against his anointed. Now this referred to the rulers of the Judah nation but it also refers to nations today. The principle is the same and this is what they say. Let us break their bands asunder and cast away their cords from us. Why do the heathen rage? They want to break the bands, the restraints, the laws of God that the Lord and his anointed have set down. They want to break that. In fact preachers today are really legally according to the IRS code are not allowed to speak or talk about political matters or political candidates. This is an example of what the Bible is telling us here. Cast their cords away from us. Cast off the restraints of righteousness and godly preaching. But ever since 1865 when the South was defeated, check your history books, the government of the North, even actually before 1865, put a restraint on Southern preachers that they are not to talk about political matters in the pulpit. And finally it became law in 1954 under the the sponsorship of LBJ. But this is what, this is what we're living with today. He that sitteth in the heavens shall laugh. God's taking record. He's taking note. The Lord shall have them in derision. Then shall he speak unto them in his wrath and vex them in his sore displeasure. You see, how's he going to speak? He's going to speak in wrath. He's going to speak in his displeasure. He's going to speak in wrath to nations, to kings, national rulers. Yet have I set my king upon my holy hill of Zion, that's the Lord Jesus Christ, and I will declare the decree the Lord has said unto me thou art my son this day have I begotten thee. Ask of me and I will give thee the heathen for thine inheritance, the heathen, and the uttermost parts of the earth thy possession. Thou shalt break them with a rod of iron. Thou shalt dash them in pieces like a potter's vessel. And you tell me the Lord's not angry with unrighteous, filthy, abominable nations and the abominable acts  that they give their people permission to commit. This is the Lord's doing. Thou shalt break them with a rod of iron. Thou shalt dash them in pieces like a potter's vessel. Be wise now therefore oh ye kings. Be instructed ye judges of the earth. Serve the Lord with fear. Rejoice with trembling. Kiss the son lest he be angry. Join yourself to the son of God. Become one with Jesus Christ lest he be angry. You see, it appears as though religion these days, I'm, I'm talking about Christianity, it's such a, such a pansy thing, such a week watered-down gospel, lovey-dovey. Jesus will love you where you're at and you can stay right there. You can keep your old lifestyle. Just ask Jesus into your heart and everything will be all right and you're on you way to heaven. No that's not it. To as many as received him, John 1:14, John one twelve thirteen and fourteen, you become one with the Son. You're joined with him. Kiss the Son, an act of affection, total love and commitment, lest He be angry and ye perish from the way when his wrath is kindled but a little. Blessed are all they that put their trust in him. Powerful words.

I have put together a book entitled "The Book of Revelation From a Israelite and Historicist Interpretation" and I would like to encourage you to order this book. It's only twelve dollars and it's a book that I feel will bless you and help you in your understanding of the book of Revelation. And I have taken the time to put several charts in the book. I think there's a total of eight or nine charts and to help explain the different views like the relationship between the church and the kingdom, and the dispensational view or the futuristic view, plan A, plan B, is there such a thing in God's economy, the replacement view which is the reformed view and other charts and I think it will be helpful to you. And also in this book to show that the book of Revelation is a Israelitish nature not Jewish nature. The book of Revelation in our Bible that is the last book of the canon is not a Jewish book. It's an Israelitish book and I have listed, let's see here, I have listed one hundred and forty two different things out of the Old Testament that are also referred to in the book of Revelation, a hundred and forty two and I probably missed four or five because this shows that it goes back the book of Revelation in our New Testament can only be understood in the light of the Old Testament. So I have put this together and for an offering of twelve dollars to this ministry. And this is offer number 301 and also with that book we will send you a map and this is eleven by seventeen professionally printed "The Reformation of Israel in the West." And on the back is an explanation of what the map is talking about on the front and that is for no extra charge. We will be glad to send you that. And don't forget if you have not received a copy of our magazine we will also send this to you free of charge, Truth in History magazine, and I believe that you will be blessed by receiving and reading this publication. And also on the back there's a list of material books and pamphlets that we have and make available to you.

So we are going rather slowly through this chapter, Revelation nineteen, because I feel that it is so rich, so full of meaning. It has so much to say and it is so apropos at this time in history because we offended the God of heaven. Our nation, our political system, our educational system, our economic system, our entertainment industry and even our churches has offended the holy God of heaven and we are about to pay the severe consequences for our offense. And I'm concerned, you're concerned about not only your salvation but the salvation of your children and your grandchildren because we in this nation have allowed the wicked to take over. How do the the evil men that rule this nation now, we have just simply acquiesced to them. We have voted them in office and they are, they are the epitome of puppets on a string being controlled by the banksters or better yet the gangsters in the banking houses around the world. Because the apostle Paul said that the love of money, the love of this stuff, filthy lucre, the love of money is the root of all evil. And as we've all been told follow the money, follow the money. That's why we're, we fight these unconstitutional wars. That's why a lot of other things are put in place even in the food industry and the agricultural industry. That's why we eat non-nutritional food. It's for the bottom line. It's for profit, for industries to become richer. Why are we paying such exorbitant prices at the gas pump? Somebody is lining their pockets unjustly. Preacher, why do you talk about these things you may ask? Because one of these days when Jesus Christ comes he's going to rectify all the wrongs. People are suffering. Soldiers are dying. Our young men and women are coming back in caskets and we have weeping mothers in cemeteries. That's why I'm concerned because the wicked have taken over our once Christian nation. God help us. But the Lord knows his own and when the Lord Jesus Christ comes he's not only going to punish the wicked but he's going to reward the righteous. Hallelujah! Those that are born again of the Spirit of God. Until next time may the Lord richly bless each one of you.

Greetings everyone in the name of the Lord Jesus. We are here again talking about the last book in the Bible, the Revelation of Jesus Christ. And I want to definitely emphasize that this Revelation letter that we find in our Bible is not just about coming events. It's not just about catastrophe. It's not only about the destruction of the wicked but it's also about the reward of the righteous. But the main theme of this book is not tragedy. It's not the antichrist. It's not the rapture. It's not destruction on the earth. It's not the battle of Armageddon but it is the Revelation of a person and that is the glorified Christ that we know as our Savior the Lord Jesus Christ, the incarnate God in flesh and then glorified and sitting on the right-hand of the Majesty on high. As we approach chapter number nineteen once again I have entitled this series Symbols of Rulership. Now we must recognize as we see in Revelation eleven, Revelation nineteen beginning with verse eleven that Jesus Christ is portrayed as a victorious King, as a conquering King and he's going to come back to this earth someday. Don't know when. I'm not a date setter and I will not even attempt to set a date or even an approximate date. I'm going to leave that up to the sovereignty of God. But as we see him pictured in this chapter he is coming back as a victorious general. He is coming back as Yahweh Sabboath that is the Lord of Host or the Lord of Many Armies. And when we read verses eleven and following we must recognize the principle of kingship. Now saints, I want to be totally honest in that when you take scripture, when you take the Bible and you read it verse by verse and you try to get out of it that is the exegesis of the text and you try to get out of the text what the writer originally wrote and intended for it his reader to understand. We must pay attention to details. And it's my intentions to teach the scripture as I understand it and God help me to open my ears and my eyes to greater understanding because the Revelation of Jesus Christ is ever unfolding. It's the greatest experience, one of the greatest things in the Christian life and that is the, the progressive unfolding of the Revelation of Jesus Christ. I want to begin by reading starting with verse eleven of chapter nineteen of the book of Revelation and go through verse sixteen, "And I saw heaven opened and behold a white horse and he that sat upon him was called Faithful and True and in righteousness he doth judge and make war. His eyes were as a flame of fire and on his head were many crowns and he had a name written that no man knew but he himself and he was clothed with a vesture dipped in blood and his name is called the Word of God. And the armies which were in heaven followed him upon white horses, clothed in fine linen, white and clean. And out of his mouth goeth a sharp sword that with it he should smite the nations and he shall rule them with a rod of iron and he treadeth the winepress of the fierceness and wrath of Almighty God. And he hath on his vesture and on his thigh a name written KING OF KINGS AND LORD OF LORDS." Now there's a lot of detail in these six verses. No human writer could've written a description more glorious and more descriptive describing the majesty of the risen Christ that we see in these verses which I have just read. And this is yet to take place but the nature, the attributes of Jesus Christ are already resident within his nature and he's just going to execute these attributes or put them in motion I might say for lack of a better way of putting it.

He's going to execute his judgment upon the ungodly and we must recognize this one principle. Jesus Christ is a prophet, the prophet. He is the prophet like unto Moses that was sent unto Israel that Moses said that the people Israel people would hear and follow. So he's the prophet. He's also the priest but he is not a Levitical priest. He is the Melchezidec priest. He is after the order of Melchezidec that I have talked about several times. And folks, that is so important to understand because as the Melchezidec priest He offered himself as a sacrifice that the Levitical priests could not do but yet he liveth. He told John I was dead but now I'm alive for evermore. He brought the Levitical priesthood to a close and the Melchezidec priesthood liveth forever. And as a Melchezidec priest there's a twofold capacity in which He serves. In the Levitical priesthood the priest only served as a priest but in the Melchezidec priesthood He serves as priest and King. So here we see Jesus Christ in his Melchezidec order functioning as a King. Now as we go back into the Old Testament the principle of kingship is ever with us. It is so clear in scripture. Turning to the book of Daniel I want to turn to chapter two of the book of Daniel and verse number forty four. "And in the days of those kings shall the God of heaven set up a kingdom." Now what is a kingdom? A kingdom is the dominion of a king. Here in this chapter in this verse "The God of heaven shall set up a kingdom which shall never be destroyed and the kingdom shall not be left to other people but it shall break in pieces and consume all the other kingdoms." So the dominion of Jesus Christ as a king is not going to be in heaven. It's going to be right here on this earth. This is where man was created. This is where the battle was lost and this is where the battle is going to be won right here on this earth. So Jesus Christ is coming back to this earth to possess his kingdom. And what is a kingdom? It's the dominion, the realm of authority of a king. But a kingdom regardless of what type of kingdom it is, whether it is a totalitarian, cruel, totalitarian type kingdom, whether it is a democratic or republican form of government, whether is it, it is a monarchical form of government, whether it's a, it may be an oligarchy. It may be some other form. It may be a theocratic form of government. A kingdom must have five component parts: people, land, a law, a throne, and a king. People are the subjects of the, of the king. Land is the landmass over which this king not only has control but he owns it. A king owns everything in the kingdom, everything in the kingdom and the people are subjects to the king. And then a law and what is the law of the kingdom of God? The law of the kingdom of God is the Old Testament and the statutes, the judgments and the moral commandments that God gave Israel at Mount Sinai. You might say but that's all done away with. No it isn't. That's one of the biggest lies that has ever been perpetrated in modern theology is that the law of God has been done away with. The law that has been done away with, the part of the law that has been abolished and nailed to the cross of Jesus was the law of ordinances, where to worship, when to worship, how to worship, animal sacrifice, all the sacrifices such as meal offerings and meat offerings and drink offerings and all those type of things. They're wiped out. They're done away with in Christ. But think of the principles that are set forth in the moral laws. Thou shall not have any other God before thee. Thou shalt not take the name of the Lord thy God in vain, etc. Those still stand and the judgment and the statutes that God gave Israel to live by and the statutes for the individual and also the statutes and judgments for the nation to follow. It actually tells us the qualifications that a king should have over any Israel nation.

So have our leaders met those qualifications? Absolutely not. That's one of the reasons why we're in such a trouble such a mess these days. But the principle of kingship is in the Old Testament Bible. The principle of kingship, what is it? It's the position, the rank, the dignity or the dominion of the king. And God's form of government is theocratic. It's theocratic through a benevolent monarchy. It's theocratic through a benevolent monarchy. That's God's form of government and this may upset some folks but really democracy is not God's form of government. God did not set up a democracy ruled by the people or a mobocracy. Neither did he set up a representative form of government. He set up a monarchy with a representation of leadership for the people to bring, to come before the monarch so that the monarch could tell the representatives to take the messages back to the people, not that the representatives came and voted and made laws. Representation is fine but in our form of government that we have in our federal government today it's backwards because these representatives of the people that we vote on and go to our statehouses they make laws. In God's form of government the representatives don't make laws. God makes the laws. God makes the laws. I want you to think about this. In the principle of Biblical government God has already made the laws because he said the law shall go forth out of Zion. The laws are already in effect. The laws are already in the mind of the Creator of the Lawgiver. See what we have done in Christianity, in modern Christianity we have mixed up, we have muddled the principles of a democratic representative form of government with scripture. That's what we have done. And we have to appreciate our form of government because it has served us but there's loopholes in it. There's weaknesses in it. And our founding fathers no doubt did the best they could under the circumstances but if they would've searched the scriptures they would've found that the leaders, the representatives don't make the laws. God makes the laws and the representatives hear the laws through the messenger of the covenant and then they go back and execute those laws. So what we have today is a form of government that is not theocratic and we will always, we will always have problems in this nation until we, until Jesus Christ, I'll put it this way, until Jesus Christ our true righteous and only king comes back and possesses his kingdom. We can make a thousand laws and improve our, our system the way we think it should be improved but it's still going to have problems galore because we're not doing it God's way. But Jesus Christ is coming back so the principle of kingship is in the old scriptures. A king is a male sovereign not a female.

Now there's different forms of monarchy. There's a limited or an absolute form of government under a monarch. Now what is Jesus Christ going to have when he comes back and he possesses his kingdom? Is he going to be limited in his power or is He going to be absolute and thorough in his kingdom in executing his will. He's going to be absolute. His power is not going to be limited. He tells us in Psalm chapter forty four and verse four who is our king. "Thou art my King." This is one of the psalms of the sons of Korah. "Thou art my King, O God: command deliverances for Jacob." Thou art my king. Forty seven and verse seven, Psalm forty seven verse seven, "For God is the king of all the earth: sing ye praises with understanding." God is the king of all the earth. Now this is an Old Testament statement made written by some of the, the songwriters in ancient Israel and they said for God is the king of all the earth. He's the king. He didn't say, they didn't say the Savior here of all the earth. He's the king of all the earth. So they're ascribing unto him total absolute universal authority on this planet. Now in Isaiah chapter forty three we read these verses. Isaiah forty three and verse fifteen, 43:15, "I am the Lord your Holy One the Creator of Israel your King." God is speaking through this silver tongued prophet Isaiah and he says I am the Lord, capital L-O-R-D, which means Yahweh, that covenant relationship name that he had with Israel, only with Israel, only with the Israel people had he that covenantal name given. "I am the Lord your Holy One the Creator of Israel, your king." God is proclaiming himself the king of Israel.

Now I do not want to fail to mention that I am bringing to your attention this book that I have put together entitled "The Book of Revelation" and this is written as a commentary from an Israelite and Historicist interpretation. Now this is different than what you'll ordinarily see advertised in bookstores or on other programs. This is a lot different. And I try to do my best within a limited number of pages, of about two hundred and twenty three pages, to give an outline of the book of Revelation and I would like to encourage each one of you to contact this ministry and acquire this book. It's well worth a monetary investment that you will make. And with that book I will send you a map absolutely free of charge that we ordinarily offer separately but on this, these programs concerning Revelation series I want to send this to you free of charge. It's entitled "The Reformation of Israel in the West." And on the back there's a written explanation. Now what does it mean? What do I mean by the reformation of Israel in the West? This is a map showing the migrations of the northern house of Israel actually all thirteen tribes of Israel coming from the West, coming through the Caspian and Black Seas and moving across northwestern Europe to the British Isles, in North America. And many of you know what I'm talking about but many a Christian has been taught, falsely taught that the Jews, the Jewish people comprises all of Israel. And was, folks that is not correct. That is just simply not correct and they have built a whole house of cards on that false theology. They have built a whole series of prophetic outlooks based upon their idea that the Jewish people comprise all of Israel but that is not correct. If you even read some of the Jewish sources they will dispute that idea. The true Israel of God marched across western Europe and formed the Christian nations of Europe called once known as Christendom and then the pilgrims and the Puritans and many others from the British Isles came over here and established this great country. And we are the Israelites of God. Now some of you are just set in your ways. You have no idea what I'm talking about. Some of you are possibly getting angry with me and getting ready to dial the phone number and leave me some harsh, nasty note or message, to put me where you think I belong. But I've been put there before folks. But we must tell the truth because what I'm trying to tell each one of us, what I'm trying to put forth in this series and throughout this ministry is that we must get back to true scripture. Quit overlooking scriptures that we don't like. Quit overlooking scriptures that doesn't fit our theological box or our prophetic themes of futurism because we, I know for certain that if many preachers would change their ideas concerning a lot of their prophecy outlook they would lose two things, money and people. They would lose monetary support and they would lose people in their congregation and the size of their congregation would go down if they admitted I'm wrong I must change. And in the next program I want to put forth the principle that Jesus Christ is going to come back to this earth and possess his kingdom and nobody, no force on earth is going to stop Him.

We also have a magazine that I would like to send to you absolutely free of charge. It's entitled Truth in History and on the back there is the books and the booklets that we make available and here is the book of Revelation listed at the very top, the one that I mentioned earlier and we would like to send this to you free of charge. And if you receive the magazine then you say that you don't want it anymore just simply call us up. Let us know. Send us a note. We'll be glad to take your name off the mailing list. But we in the church, ministers, pastors, evangelists, scholars, theologians, Bible school teachers, professors for too long have denied Jesus Christ His rightful position and authority as king in this earth and on this earth. They have come up with this system where we're going to fly away and just turn this place over to the devil and to the antichrist and the false prophet and that is not correct. Jesus Christ is coming back and he's going to possess this kingdom, His kingdom on this earth. And out of Zion is going to go forth the law of God to govern us in righteousness and purity and equity in Jesus name. God bless you.

Today I begin with a blessing and that is to bless the Lord just as the Psalmist said Bless the Lord O my soul and all that is within me bless his holy name and forget not all of his benefits. God bless each one of you who have joined me on this program today as we continue our study in the book of Revelation chapter nineteen. This chapter is a glorious one portraying Jesus Christ as the King of Kings and the Lord above all other Lords. As we return to the text we, I want to talk about the principles of kingship and I covered some of this last time but who is the King? Who is the King? Now the principle of kingship is the position, the rank, the dignity or the dominion of the king. And God's form of government is a benevolent monarchy under the principle of theocracy. Theocracy means government by God, government by God. A King, it's not a Queen, it's a King and that is a king is a male sovereign. And in the case of the Lord Jesus Christ His kingdom when he comes to possess it as the monarch, the righteous, godly, benevolent monarch, he's going to have absolute authority not limited but absolute authority. And in the Old Testament before we come to Revelation nineteen, in the Old Testament we find out who the writers of the Old Testament proclaimed as their king. In Isaiah forty three and fifteen we read, "I am the Lord your Holy One, the Creator of Israel, your King. That's God speaking to his people Israel. Also in chapter forty four and verse number six, "Thus sayeth the Lord the king of Israel and his redeemer the Lord of host. I am the first. I am the last and beside me there is no God." In the beginning of this verse, "Thus saith the Lord the king of Israel." He's speaking through the prophet Isaiah once again and he's proclaiming himself the king of Israel. We don't have to proclaim him as king. We just accept him as king. He does not have to be voted in. He sets itself up as the king of Israel. We go to Jeremiah chapter ten and we read these words in verse ten, Jeremiah 10:10, "But the Lord is the true God. He is the living God and an everlasting king. At his wrath the earth shall tremble and the nations shall not be able to abide his indignation." And then we come to a powerful verse in Zachariah 14. In Zachariah chapter fourteen we come to this principle concerning the Lord is king. Zachariah fourteen verse nine, "And the Lord shall be king over all the earth. In that day shall there be one LORD and his name one." And the Lord shall be king over all the earth. Without going into the context of the book of Zachariah the proclamation was made that the Lord is going to be king over all the earth. I mean the whole globe, the whole thing. Some will be willing subjects while others will be obstinate while others would, will resist his reign but he's still going to be their king.

Now that's Old Testament. What about the New Testament? In Matthew the book of Matthew as the book opens in chapter two let me read these words. "Now when Jesus was born in Bethlehem of Judea in the days of Herod the king behold there came wise men from the East to Jerusalem saying where is he that is born King of the Jews? For we have seen his star in the East and are come to worship. When Herod the king had heard these things he was troubled and all Jerusalem with him. And when he had gathered all the chief priests and scribes of the people together he demanded of them where Christ should be born and they said unto him in Bethlehem of Judea. For thus it is written by the prophet and thou Bethlehem in the land of Judah art not the least among the princes of Judah. For out of thee shall come a Governor that shall rule my people Israel." This is a quote from the book of Micah chapter five verses one and two, Micah chapter five, "Now gather thyself in troops, O daughter of troops. He hath laid siege against us: they shall smite the judge of Israel with a rod upon, upon the cheek." That's smiting the judge of Israel, that's Jesus Christ. "But thou Bethlehem Ephratah though thou be little among the thousands of Judah yet out of thee shall he come forth unto me that is to be ruler in Israel; whose goings forth have been from of old, from everlasting." Now my question, the Old Testament writers proclaimed God as king. The New Testament writers are proclaiming Jesus as king. So do we have two kings in Israel? We have one King simply put because Jesus is God. Jesus is God. He's the Word incarnate. Doesn't do away with the Father. It does not do away with the Father because God is Spirit. You can't do away with Spirit. But the Bible tells us that in him dwelleth the fullness, not the partiality, but the fullness of the godhead bodily when he was in the flesh. So if he's going to be the Savior, He also has to be the prophet, the priest and King. And Micah gives this prophecy that yes there's going to come a governor born in Bethlehem of Judea that's going to rule my people Israel. Now is Jesus your King? Is Jesus our King? You see Jesus is the head of the church. He's not king of the church. He's head of the church because his church is his body but he's King over a nation called Israel and it can't be the Israeli nation because they don't even accept Him as Savior much less as king.

We also find in the book of Luke chapter one the angel Gabriel came to Mary. She was of the house of David and espoused to a man whose name was Joseph of the house of David. "And the angel came in unto her and said Hail thou art highly favored, the Lord is with thee: blessed art thou among women." When she saw him she was troubled and wondered in her mind what manner of greeting this should be. And this is the word that the angel gave her. "Fear not Mary for thou hast found favor with God. And behold thou shalt conceive in thy womb and bring forth a son and shalt call his name Jesus. He shall be great and shall be called the Son of the Highest: and the Lord God shall give unto him the throne of his father David." He's going to give him a throne. The angel in this case never mentioned a cross. Never mentioned Gethsemane. He never mentioned a tomb but this child was born to be a King. Let's not deny him his kingship. In John chapter eighteen verse thirty seven, "Pilate therefore said unto him, Art thou a king then? Jesus answered, Thou sayest that I am a king. To this end was I born and for this cause came I into the world that I should bear witness unto the truth. Everyone that is of the truth heareth my voice." He did not, Jesus did not refute the idea of Pilate calling him a King or referring to him as a King because Jesus knew that he was born for the purpose of being a King. Now in the book of Revelation chapter one and verse number five we see this principle. "And from Jesus Christ who is the faithful witness the first begotten of the dead and the prince of the kings of the earth." Now as a faithful witness he is a prophet. As the first begotten of the dead he is a priest and as the prince of the kings of the earth he's a King. Prophet, Priest and King. And as that Prophet he loved us. As a Priest he washes us and as a King he makes us kings and priests unto God and his father. So he loves, he washes and he makes. In the body of Christ, in the body of Christ the Lord washes his saints. He loves his saints. He washes his saints but is everyone in the body of Christ going to be a king? Is everyone in the body going to be king? Now the parallel the symbol symbolically speaking the body the human body as Paul states is representative is used as a representative symbol of the body of Christ. Some parts are rather uncomely. Some other parts are rather the comely parts. There must be a head. And there's some parts that are unseen. There are some parts that are seen and very active such as your hands and your arms, your feet and your legs. I do not believe that every saint of God is going to rule and reign. They may have a lesser position but that's the Lord's choice. That's the Lord's choosing. But when the Lord Jesus Christ comes back he's going to come back with many armies.

Now we found out in our reading of the Old Testament that God is king, reading of the New Testament that Jesus is king. And Jesus is king because he's the Word made flesh. Now in Revelation nineteen coming back to our text we see six symbols of rulership in this chapter and I doubt if I'm able to cover all six of these in this program today and if not I will follow-up with a subsequent program the Lord willing on this subject. But there are six symbols of rulership and all of them belong to the Lord Jesus Christ. I do not want to deny him his kingship. We have and let me say this again in modern theology and in modern prophecy they have fine-tuned that thing to fit anyone's pocketbook, anyone's idea and they have denied him his kingship because they take all of his subjects. You see he has to have people in his kingdom. Those are his subjects. They're flying them away to another planet. But his subjects the saints his willing subjects the righteous are going to remain right here on this earth and all the wrongs that are committed, that have been committed they're going to be rectified. Jesus Christ is going to right every wrong. All the injustices that we see, the unfairness, the crookedness in businessmen and politicians and in individuals, that's going to be changed. It's going to be rectified. The waste in our government is going to be changed and I want to talk about that in one of the symbols of rulership. The Bible addresses that subject, the, the subject of economics in the kingdom of God. And the Lord is going to rule in righteousness. The Lord is going to rule in justice and righteousness. And the corruption that we see in our government, the lying, the sacrifice of blood in sending our young men and women to fight ungodly wars, that's going to change. That's going to change because he's going to come back and he's going to punish those, he's going to punish those with everlasting destruction that have wasted his people. Revelation 19:11

But before I go into the six symbols of rulership once again I want to remind you to acquire this book, the Book of Revelation written from an Israelite and a  Historicist standpoint, not a futuristic standpoint. And I mention this not because we make a lot of money off of this material. We don't. But we want to share this information and the truths of God's word in the book of Revelation. And it's a brief overview but it will be I think very helpful. And in this I have placed foldout charts that you will find very helpful in explaining the different views of the kingdom and the church and it's the Biblical view, the dispensational view, also the reformed view and other material that you will find very helpful such as the Seventy Weeks of Daniel. And it's, it's, it's a good investment for your Bible study. And also with that I will send you free of charge this map "The Reformation of Israel." When you call, when you write just say I want the book of Revelation and the, the map that comes with it. And we are asking for a ministry donation of just twelve dollars for this book and the map, just a donation to the ministry to help us meet our expenses. And if you're a new listener, a new viewer and you have never received one of our magazines we'll be be more than happy to send you a free copy of our magazine Truth in History.

So with that being said let's go back to Revelation 19 verse 11. "And I saw heaven opened and behold a white horse. And He that sat on him was called Faithful and True and in righteousness he doth judge and make war." Now this white horse, Jesus Christ is not necessarily coming back on a literal physical visible white horse. This is symbolic taken from the Roman tradition of a victorious general coming back from a battle riding his white horse. It was a sign of a conquering general, a conquering warrior. He had just fought the battle and he's coming back to be hailed as a great warrior victorious over his enemies. And he that is he that sat upon him his name is Faithful and True. Now Jesus told Pilate he come to witness to the truth. In John fourteen He said I am the way, the truth and the life. In him in Jesus there is no deceit. There is no lie, no guile just absolute total verity. He's coming back in his justice and in righteousness he's going to judge and make war. It's going to be righteous judgment. He's not going to beat on somebody that doesn't deserve it. He's not going to bring punitive pain and suffering to someone just because he wants to be a bully. No, he's going to judge righteously. "His eyes are as a flame of fire. On his head were many crowns." Now first of all the first symbol of rulership that I want to mention is a throne. What is the throne of God? Ordinarily we think of a throne as being a big chair and the King sitting on his throne in this big chair. That is only symbolic of his authority. The chair really has nothing to do with his authority. It's part of his array. It's part of his surroundings. It's part of a King's environment. Its part of the symbol that is majestic to the viewer but his throne is the power and the rank of a king. It's his sovereignty. It's his position of authority. Now a king can sit in his chair in a literal chair but that doesn't make him king. He could be a hundred miles away from his chair. He could be in another country but he's still the king. He could be out hunting but he's still the king. He still possesses that symbolic chair which is symbolic of his power and his rank, his position, his dignity, his sovereignty and his authority. That's a throne. It's, a throne is really something that is invisible. You can see the king but his throne is his position. He may look like any other man standing in a crowd but he possesses the throne. So Jesus Christ possesses the throne. He's setting on the throne and when we get to the kingdom of God here on this earth and the king has returned to possess his kingdom we're not just going to look for some big chair, fancy chair decked out with diamonds and gold. No, here he's coming symbolically on a white horse showing it's his authority. It's his position that he holds regardless where he's at. And folks I want to give a word of encouragement. This old world in which we live is going to be changed. There's a brighter day ahead. There's a greater day ahead as the King, Jesus Christ, comes back to possess his kingdom and everything will be in righteousness and in judgment. God bless you until next time.
