For now, all those involved obeyed all the Lord had commanded. Their ordination was complete; their priesthood was valid. God would accept their service and their intercession for the people. The eighth day has a lot of meaning. The seventh day is the last day of the week. Saturday. The eighth day was actually the first day of the new week or Sunday. Why didn’t they say the first day of the week? It was called that in the New Testament in a couple of places. But in the OT it is called the eighth day in fulfillment of the seventh day of rest to the eighth day of a new beginning. The end of the law to the beginning of Grace.

Luke 21:36 Watch ye therefore, and pray always, that ye may be accounted worthy) to escape all these things that shall come to pass, and to stand before the Son of man. People prepare for family visits. People prepare for dinner. People prepare to go to work. People prepare to take a trip. People prepare to go to a show. People prepare to go on vacation. People prepare for a job interview. People prepare for Christmas and Thanksgiving. That’s what humans do. We prepare for the future all the time. We prepare for emergencies. We have food to last for a few days. We have money set aside. We maintain our automobiles and our homes. We have fire escapes and we have flood evacuation plans. We are always preparing for the unknown or at least we should always be prepared. But in terms of Bible prophecy we don’t prepare ourselves. We aren’t ready as a church for Jesus to come for us. We aren’t looking for Jesus. We are not prepared for the times we live in and for what is coming upon this world. How can we be prepared?

Thanksgiving is already here. Wow! How time flies. We will hear this a thousand times this week…things to be thankful for. We already know we should be thankful and hopefully are thankful for Jesus Christ and His birth death and resurrection. We are thankful for our families, our home, our income, our church and on and on. But I have some things to tell you some things you may have never thought about to be thankful for

The prophecy is Amos’s great burden from the Lord concerning the national sin of God’s chosen people, as well as the judgment that must fall upon them unless they repent. No better testimony could be given concerning Amos than his own (7:14-15): “I was no prophet, neither was I a prophet’s son. But I was a herdsman, and a gatherer of sycamore fruit and the Lord took me as I followed the flock, and the Lord said unto me, Go, prophesy unto my people Israel.” From his testimony we learn that Amos was not a graduate of the school of the prophets, nor had he any formal religious training or academic preparation for the mission to which God called him. Rather, he was a simple shepherd who also gathered sycamore fruit, and who in obedience to God was used mightily to deliver God’s message of judgment against Israel, the northern kingdom.

God answers Habakkuk’s questions, resulting in continuing faith in God’s wisdom, sovereignty, and salvation. The Book of Habakkuk begins with Habakkuk crying out to God for an answer to why God’s chosen people are allowed to suffer in their captivity. The Lord gives His answer to Habakkuk, essentially stating, “You wouldn’t believe it if I told you” Habakkuk theme is that it is permissible to question what God is doing, although with respect and reverence. Sometimes it is not evident to us what is going on, especially if we are thrown into suffering for a time or if it seems our enemies are prospering while we are just barely getting by.

Eye to Eye is Bill Koenig's 576 page ‘expanded’ in depth study of the consequences to those who attempt to divide God's covenant land from the Perfect Storm in 1993 to Hurricane Ian this year. We cannot mess with God’s chosen land and His chosen people. Who are the apple of His eye and the land of promise. The city of God is Jerusalem. The only eternal city is Jerusalem. No other people, no other place, no other city has God claimed as His own. The church is the bride of Christ, Israel is His chosen, His elect, His heritage, His people, and His vessel of blessing to this sin filled world. Israel is the physical representative of God. Israel is the billboard of God’s existence. Israel is the physical proof of God. The church is the spiritual evidence and proof of God. The Church operates in the spiritual. Faith and trust in what we cannot see with our eyes…the Lord Jesus Christ. Israel is the physical manifestation of God’s working upon this world. Israel and Jerusalem. The church is the spiritual working of God in this world. Faith and trust. So the bottom line is that dividing Israel will get you in big trouble with God.

In Ezra 10 The list of those who had taken pagan wives included 113 men: 17 priests, 10 Levites, and 86 others. It had become a widespread problem. But why was it a problem?

Dr. Robert Redfield, former director of the Centers for Disease Control, in a September 15 interview with Paul Thacker’s Disinformation Chronicle newsletter. According to Redfield, “Everyone had to agree to the narrative” enforced by Dr. Anthony Fauci and other health officials that the C-19 virus came from a “wet market” in Wuhan and not the Wuhan Institute of Virology (WIV). And Dr. Fauci “clearly misled Congress,” about funding dangerous gain-of-function research at the WIV. So there you go….we already knew this. Confessions are being made everyday and everywhere by the actors in this C 19 conspiracy. They are admitting to the lies that we have been told about Covid…...but what is being done about it? Absolutely nothing! In fact current CDC director Walensky this month encouraged everyone to get the “booster” shot without any qualms whatsoever! It doesn’t matter how many lies they get caught telling…. people will still follow them. Why? Because they have had their consciences seared and the minds are reprobate concerning the truth. They would rather believe “the Lie” than the truth.

Romans 13:1-2 Let every soul be subject unto the higher powers. For there is no power but of God: the powers that be are ordained of God. 2 Whosoever therefore resisteth the power, resisteth the ordinance of God: and they that resist shall receive to themselves damnation. This is the passage that causes so much confusion for Christians.

Talk about a homecoming. One day we could be taken by Jesus to heaven and immediately be with Him and all of our departed family, brothers and sisters in Christ and our friends! This is going to happen one day! It really is whether we are looking for Him or not. As you see by my “sign of the times” in todays’ bulletin….people are actually getting stressed out by the rapture. Wow. I just can’t believe someone would be stressed out by Jesus return….unless you don’t know Him. That would be stressful for sure. Traumatic can’t even describe that.

With Christ we have all we need, who we need and what we need. Zephaniah 3:17

Hebrews 13:2 Be not forgetful to entertain strangers: for thereby some have entertained angels unawares. Angels are all over the Bible. The book of Revelation alone has references to 31 angels. Angels are powerful, created beings. We know the names of two angels. Michael, the prince of Israel and Gabriel. We have many instances of angels in the Bible. Let’s look at angels.

We all need encouragement in this times that we live. We don’t know what going to happen tomorrow but we know who holds tomorrow. We don’t know what tomorrow will bring… but we know who knows will bring tomorrow. What do those people do without hope in Jesus Christ? We know what they do. We see it everyday….they do drugs, alcohol, lying, murder, revenge, homosexuality, transgenderism, communism, hate, cheating, stealing, pedolphilia, self righteousness, self determination, fighting, war and adultery. So people without Jesus Christ stay very busy so they don’t have to think about God and their accountability to Him. But we who are Christians are swimming against a stream flowing full of this wickedness. We need to know if it is worth it to keep on for Christ? Is it going to be worth it all?

1 Samuel 4:11 And the ark of God was taken; and the two sons of Eli, Hophni and Phinehas, were slain. The people of God failed. They trusted in the false leadership of Hophni and Phineahas. They died and the Ark of the Covenant was taken. The Ark that was given at the time of Moses and was still in possession by the Israelites and only disappeared before the Babylonian captivity. 2 Maccabees says that Jeremiah hid it before the Babylonian captivity. We do not know where the Ark is today.
IN Revelation 11:19 the ark is in heaven. We don’t need the Ark today. The Ark symbolized God’s presence. Since Pentecost the Holy Spirit indwells each believer. This is a story about the power of God over the gods of this world….all gods….. those we invent and those real.

Ezekiel 37 is the dry bones chapter. The Jews were pictured as dead dry bones. Dead as a people to God but not forgotten. God made promises to Abraham about His descendants. God made promises to about the seed of the woman in Genesis 3:15. That is Jesus Christ who is a Jew! God brought them back to life and and would bring them back to their land. The Church is God’s adopted Children. Israel is God’s chosen people. God chose Israel to be a people to introduce Him to the world and through which He gave the law and then the Savior.

You can’t censor God and be a successful nation. You can’t put God out of a nations conscience and be a great nation. But we are trying to do that today in the United States. What happened when Israel tried that and what is happening to America for trying that. 1:00

Last Sunday night we covered the first three points….

How does a Christian respond to tyranny? What should our priority be?

The goal of the globalists is to put God out of our society. The belief in God leads people to trust in Him and many who trust in Jesus Christ. If Jesus Christ is Lord then the globalists cannot be lord. So one has to go. And they aren’t going away. The church is!! But the doom of any nation is that nation that ignores God and tries to wipe Him from society.

Chapter 8….Macedonia corresponds to the northern part of present-day Greece. Paul had established churches in the Macedonian cities of Philippi, Thessalonica, and Berea.
In 2 Corinthians 8:2–5 We see the Macedonians were a great example of giving because they gave (1) during affliction, (2) in spite of great poverty, (3) with great joy, (4) beyond their means, and (5) freely. In fact, (6) they pleaded for the privilege of sharing their wealth with other believers, and (7) they gave themselves to the Lord and to others. In 2 Corinthians 8:6 Titus had begun the collection when he was in Corinth we see this in 2 Corinthians 2:13; 7:6, 7, 13–15). Paul wanted him to complete it. He appeals to the Corinthians to give as he reminds then that they should abound in everything in the Lord.

We all know lazy people that just drive us crazy. Maybe you are lazy. We all have times when we just want to be lazy. But that’s okay to get a way and be lazy for awhile and be refreshed. But to have a reputation of being lazy is about the worst reputation to have. And a lot of people are that way. You ought to have to best looking yard in the neighborhood. Your home should reflect your diligence and being a hard working person. And being a lazy preacher and Bible teacher and a lazy Christian is really bad. I know we can’t do some things and we may not be able to do certain things anymore. But you can do what you can. Mary anointed Jesus before His crucifixion. She did what she could. Mark 14:8 She hath done what she could: she is come aforehand to anoint my body to the burying. She couldn’t preach, she couldn’t teach, be an apostle, heal the sick, raise the dead, but she could anoint Jesus. And we remember her today and forever! Laziness is a bane on any society. Laziness is in abundance in our churches among pastors, teaches and congregations. Laziness is defined as not doing anything productive, useful or beneficial for ourselves or for others. Sounds like our government doesn’t it?
