Monday 11/4/19 Jeremiah 24:1 – 25:7


– [Narrator] Welcome to the
Shepherd’s Chapel Network family Bible study hour
with Pastor Arnold Murray. Wisdom is understanding
God’s word. Pastor Murray’s unique teaching
approach brings God’s word alive with meaning as he takes
you on a chapter by chapter, verse by verse, study of God’s
letter to you, the Bible. (soft music) And now here is
Pastor Arnold Murray. – Good day to you,
God bless you. Say, welcome to the
Shepherd’s Chapel, welcome to this family
Bible study hour. Back in our Father’s
word, book of Jeremiah. Jeremiah meaning whom
God launches forth. And God did, he launched
him forth before he ever entered his mother’s womb
and then while he was in his mother’s womb, he
nailed him as a prophet. I mean, he was, pre-ordered
it, prearranged it, and how he had his hand on
Jeremiah and then launched him forth with the true word of God. We come to the 24th
chapter of Jeremiah and this has to do
with part of the base and understanding the
Parable of the Fig Tree which Christ said,
maybe you should learn the Parable of the Fig
Tree, he said learn it because with that comes
the final generation. Meaning that’s how
important it is to know and to understand. (clearing throat) Excuse me. And this 24th chapter basically
gives you that foundation. We will explain as we go along. Chapter 24, the great Book
of Jeremiah, verse one. And it reads, The Lord shewed me, and,
behold, two baskets of figs were set before the
temple of the Lord, after that Nebuchadrezzar, which is Nebuchadnezzar
properly translated, king of Babylon had carried
away captive Jeconiah the son of Jehoiakim
the king of Judah, and the princes of Judah, with the carpenters, the smiths, from Jerusalem, and had
brought them to Babylon. Now, understand
this is the males, the daughters of Zedekiah
would stay with Jeremiah. That’s history and as
well as it is biblical. And very important. But the important thing
for you to remember, the king of Babylon
in the future sense has already arrived. That is to say, his
army, his power. Just as it will be for the
first two and a half months that in the five month period. And he’s there and
this is a message as to what you should know
and what you should do. Verse two to continue, One basket had very good figs, even like the figs
that are first ripe: and the other basket
had very naughty figs, which could not be
eaten, they were so bad. Probably goat figs, okay? That’s just not
possible to eat them. So, what we have here is a
promise of what’s going to go back into Jerusalem. You see, that’s
where this is taken, just outside the Lord’s house. You have both the
good and the bad. This was planted in the
year of our Lord, 1948. Both the good and the bad
went back to Jerusalem. That is how you mark the
generation of the fig tree. I will explain as we go along. Verse three, Then
said the Lord unto me, What seest thou, Jeremiah? And I said, Figs; the
good figs, very good; and the evil, very evil, they cannot be eaten,
they are so evil. And here we have the very
being of the tree of life and the tree of the
knowledge of good and evil. This started back in the
garden and contrary to what many people might teach
that well, all this happened under an apple tree, false. Well, where do you
think it happened? In a fig grove. Well, how possibly could
you know that Adam and Eve were deceived at a fig grove? Well, did it say they had apple
leaves made them an apron? No, they said fig leaves
and fig leaves ever since have been declared
that that is hidden, that’s what fig leaves are
symbolic of is hiding something. And, naturally,
what did they hide? They didn’t make a
mask for their mouth, they made aprons to hide
their private parts. In the very fig grove
in which the evilness first took place, where the
first prophecy of the Bible in chapter three, verse 15
and 16, of the great book of Genesis, is how that he
would put enmity between the woman seed and
the serpent’s seed. And that means
offspring, children. And so it is. So, understand what our
Father’s talking about here as we come along. Continuing then
with the next verse. Verse four, Again the word of
the Lord came unto me, saying, Thus saith, verse five,
thus saith the Lord, the God of Israel;
Like these good figs, so will I acknowledge
them that are carried away captive of Judah, whom I
have sent out of this place into the land of the
Chaldeans for their good. Well, now, how could this be and what does it
symbolize prophetically? Well, it means this: the good figs being
God’s elect even after the false Christ appears. They are sent before him
whereby the Holy Spirit can witness through them and
bring to pass what is written in Mark chapter 13 and Matthew
24 as to how the truth will be spread in the end
times even after the king of Babylon sets
foot on this earth proceeding the Second Advent. This may seem a little
strange to some, that’s what the word says, okay? And that’s why God gives
parables as well as he would use the fig tree, symbolically
speaking, and the fig itself of good people and bad people
and that’s what you have in Jerusalem today. Verse six, so I will set
mine eyes upon them for good, and I will bring them
again to this land. Well, what land was that? The land of Judea, Jerusalem! And I will build them,
and not pull them down; and I will plant them,
and not pluck them up. This happened in the
year of our Lord, 1948, when Israel become
a nation again. Both good figs and bad figs. Both the good and the bad. And so, therefore,
you have a date there as to when God would bring
this prophecy to pass from the time Christ
walked the earth up until the year
of our Lord in 1948. They had not returned. That is to say, neither
the good nor the bad. But here we have, if you would,
both the good and the bad. And so it is. And here we go with, and we’ll continue then with, with verse six and
he would say again, he would plant them
and not pluck them up. Guess what? That’s eternal. Not going to happen that way. Verse seven, And I will give
them an heart to know me. Heart’s a mind. Being the good figs are
certainly going to know the true Father
from the fake, okay? That I am the Lord: and
they shall be my people, and I will be their God: for they shall return unto
me with their whole heart. That’s God’s elect. They have, from
the very beginning, they have the seal of
God in their forehead, they’re going to stand
against the false one. Even though he comes in
prosperously and peacefully as it is written in the
great Book of Daniel. That is to say,
the false messiah, the false king of Babylon, and when he comes in peacefully
to take over that area, then certainly that’s no problem
to us because God sees good for his election that
he can utilize them, bringing in the very
events that consummate the end of this age. Verse eight, And
as the evil figs, which cannot be eaten,
they are so evil; surely thus saith the Lord,
So will I give Zedekiah the king of Judah,
and his princes, and the residue of Jerusalem,
that remain in this land, and them that dwell
in the land of Egypt. That is to say,
notice the females are not mentioned in this. Only the evil as far as
God putting them down but Zedekiah naturally
would be taken captive as our outlook is, he was
blinded, he was led in chains all the way to Babylon,
and there he was killed. But the daughters of Zedekiah, God would always have someone
to sit on that throne of David and it happened to fall through
the lineage of the daughters and as you’ve heard me
say before many times, one of the daughters
names was Scota and Scota would go to
Egypt with Jeremiah and then later to England
and later the Islands where she would, from her
linage would be called Scotland for Scota. And many might say,
well, is that Biblical? In part it is but
it’s also history. You ever cover history? You ever really make a
serious study of history? It’s really, these are promises
by God concerning Jerusalem, concerning the figs. It’s important that you know it. Verse nine, And I will
deliver them to be removed into all the kingdoms of
the earth for their hurt, to be a reproach and a
proverb, a taunt and a curse, in all places whither
I shall drive them. That residue, I’m
going to scatter them. And certainly even
today they are scattered and many people don’t even
know where the true houses are. Verse 10 to complete
the chapter, And I will send the sword, the
famine, and the pestilence, among them, till they be
consumed from off the land that I gave unto them
and to their fathers. And so, it was that they
would until the end, the very end, when they
would be gathered back there and certainly, this is
what is very important, this has to do with that
time where Paul himself would teach in Second
Thessalonians chapter two, don’t worry about
Christ returning to us, it’s not going to happen until
after the son of perdition, king of Babylon, stand in a
holy place claiming to be God. Many people are
going to be deceived by that very bad fig, the
father of the evil fig. The father of the false seed. And certainly, many
will be deceived but God’s elect shall
never be deceived. Why? Because they have the seal
of God in their forehead which means they have this
word whereby they’re not going to be deceived. Now, how is it that this
Parable then came to be? You’re gonna have it with you, we’re gonna go to Mark chapter
13 for a moment or two here and we’re going to
cover after Christ said you’re gonna be delivered
up before the false one, you’re not to premeditate
what you’ll say beforehand but you will speak what
the Holy Spirit gives you at that moment and which these very things,
all seven of the trumpets and that which execute
the command, are given in this 13th chapter of Mark and the 24th chapter of Matthew only it gives you
a running account of exactly how it’s
going down at the end. That is why Christ would
tell you in verse five, take heed that
nobody deceive you for many will come claiming
to be Christian preachers but they’re not
preachin’ my word, okay? So, having said that,
that would be verse five. We’re gonna pick
it up in verse 21 which has to do
with the fig tree. Listen carefully. Christ’s words. And then if any man shall say
to you, Lo, here is Christ; or, lo, he is there;
believe him not. When the false one comes, many are gonna say
Christ has returned. But you know it’s the evil one, you know the false
one returns first. 22, For false Christs,
who were they? False Christs and false
prophets shall rise, and shall shew signs
and wonders, to seduce, if it were possible,
even the elect. That is to say,
even the good figs but it’s not going to happen. Verse 23, But take you heed: behold, I have foretold
you all things. See, if you have
studied God’s word, if you have studied his
word chapter by chapter and verse by verse, Father
has foretold you all things whereby you have
nothing to worry about. I mean, he always forewarns. The question is,
have you read it? That’s what’s important. Now, he’s telling you here,
not maybe the king of Babylon of the great Book of
Revelation is coming before the Christ does,
he’s assuring it. And he lets you know the very
purpose of a true Christian is to stand against him. That’s, you know, many
people have known there was more to God’s word than
they had been taught since they were children,
especially if they are marked as one of God’s elect
that must make that stand. For their own good
will God use them and how precious it is. Then continuing, verse
24, But in those days, after that tribulation, that’s the tribulation
of the false one claiming to be Jesus, the sun shall be darkened, and the moon shall
not give her light. Major changes. 25, And the stars of
heaven shall fall, and the powers that are
in heaven shall be shaken. Satan and all of his
little ones as it’s written in Revelation chapter
12, verse six and seven are cast out onto this
earth and so it is. Verse 26, And then shall they
see the Son of man coming in the clouds with
great power and glory. This is the true
Christ returning and he does not return
until this event transpires, until after, I repeat,
mark my words well, until after the tribulation
of the false messiah. That is the destiny
of God’s election is to stand against the
false figs, the bad figs. Verse 27, And then shall
he send his angels, and shall gather together his
elect from the four winds, from the uttermost
part of the earth to the uttermost part of heaven. He pulls together those
that he chose before the foundations of this world as it’s written in Ephesians
chapter one, verse four. Now, listen carefully,
this is why we came here. Verse 28, Now learn a
parable of the fig tree; When her branch is yet tender, and putteth forth leaves,
you know that summer is nigh. Now, what is summer? Well, summer’s the
time for harvest, time for the
harvesting of souls. And let’s teach a little
word about the fig tree, a little horticulture here. You don’t plant a
fig by using seed, you set out shoots. So, when, in 1948, when
that shoot was set out and began to put forth leaves, you better know that generation is getting very close to
the time that the false one, the false Christ, will appear. Verse 29, So you in like manner, when you shall see these
things come to pass, know that it is nigh,
even at the doors. That is to say, in the
Greek, the word it is, the power of it is designated
by what the subject is. The subject is the coming of
the false one and the true one. In this case, the true one. So, it should be, rather
than translated it, which would be an object,
it is an individual, it is the Lord Jesus Christ,
so it should say he is near. Verse 30, Verily I say unto you, that this generation
shall not pass, till all these things be done. That’s why it’s important
for you to learn the Parable of the Fig Tree because that
is the final generation, that generation of the fig tree. 31, Heaven and earth
shall pass away: but my words shall
not pass away. In other words, God’s
word is always the same. It was in the first earth
age, it is in this one, and it will be in the
earth age to come. God never, he is the same
yesterday, he is today, and he will be forever. That’s why you can be so
very stable in his presence because he does not change. He is always there for you. He will never leave you,
he will never forsake you. He is always there for you. This is the Parable
of the Fig Tree. Within this, he gives us a date, he gives us the
geographical location, he lets you know the residue, the residue is made up
even of Kenites, okay? Kenites are the bad figs, in case you hadn’t figured
that out by this time. And you have both the good fig and the bad fig in
Jerusalem at this time. Well, how do we
know the difference? By spiritual discernment. Doesn’t take you long
to figure that out. The important thing to
know is that before long the false Christ himself in
that generation of the fig tree shall, his tribulation shall be. He will come in
prosperously and peacefully as it is written both
in the Book of Daniel and the Book of Revelation
and by Christ’s teachings and the very gospels of,
and all four gospels. So, how could you not be warned? Especially when he
would say to you, I have foretold you all things. Well, where did he
foretell us all things? In the word of God. You know, the Holy Spirit
alleviates any anxieties you might have in understanding
the word if you’ll relax and listen to Father
instead of man. What did it say back in
chapter 17, verse five of this same book? Just in case you
might have forgotten, I’m gonna read it to you. Chapter 17, verse five. Thus saith the Lord; Cursed be
the man that trusteth in man, and maketh flesh his arm, and whose heart
departeth from the Lord. So, he’s like a
heath in the desert. A heath never grows
into anything. Why? Because it’s starved for truth. Water, living water, that is to say, Christ. So, anytime you put your
faith and trust in man instead of Almighty
God, in his word, in the very events, when
he says something is going to come to pass, it’s
going to come to pass as it is written. That’s why he foretells
us before he has foretold all things through his
prophets and the gospels. So, it’s there for you to learn. Christ made this very plain,
again, as you’re second witness to this Parable of the Fig Tree in the Parable of the Tares. Who planted them? Well, how could we know
for sure who planted them? Well, have you ever read it? Have you ever read, really,
who planted the wicked ones? The bad figs? Christ told you that when
you plant this wheat, you’re gonna have some
tares grow up in it and if you’re not mistaken,
I mean, they look, this is a (speaking foreign
language) in the Greek tongue, it means it looks just
like wheat growing. You can’t tell the
difference hardly. And if you start trying
to pull up some of the (speaking foreign language), tares, you’re gonna pull
some wheat up with it. You’re gonna destroy
some good people. So, what did God say? He said, leave them alone. Watch them and
spiritually discern. But God and the angels
will take care of them. Well, where did they come from? And then Christ would
explain to the disciples, they couldn’t understand
the parable either. Finally, when they were alone,
they said explain this to us about these tares, this bad fig, which is what it
has referenced to. And verse 37 of Matthew
13 would read then, He answered and said unto them, He that soweth the good
seed is the Son of man. That is our Father
himself through the Son, the Holy Spirit. 38, The field is the world; that’s not difficult, is it? The field where the tares were
sown is this world, this age. The good seed are the
children of the kingdom, that’s the king, the
Lord Jesus Christ, and his dominion. But the tares are the
children of the wicked one. Oh, now let me figure out, who could the wicked one be? The naughty figs. Who could that be? Well, read on. He foretells us all things. Verse 39, The enemy that
sowed them is the devil; the harvest is the
end of the world; and the reapers are the angels. And therefore the tares are
gathered and burned in the fire; so shall it be in the end
of this world and so it is. This is why it’s written
also in Saint John, Christ foretelling
you all things. Saint John, chapter
eight, verse 44, you are of your
father, the bad figs, you are of your father who
was the first murderer. Well, who was that? Well, it was Cain and the
offspring being the Kenites. And if you are of our Father,
you would do the deeds of our Father but you do
not because you are of the, your father is the devil. So, you know, you have
been foretold all things. Have you listened? Have you learned
from God’s word? The obvious is there where
a child can understand. But unfortunately and
as Christ would warn in that 13th chapter
of Mark in verse five, don’t let man deceive you. For many will come claiming
to be Christian preachers. Many of them will even say, this is not Scriptural
now, this is my word, many of them are going to say, you don’t have to
understand God’s word, you don’t have to understand
the Book of Revelation, you’re gonna be gone. Only that’s a lie. Do you listen to
men and be cursed? Or do you listen to
your Father’s word? Chapter by chapter,
verse by verse, whereby you have God’s truth
that will deliver you from shame that is to me is
just not comprehensible. I cannot imagine myself
being in that position of worshiping the false one when I have been
warned by my Father beyond any shadow of a doubt
that he will come first deceiving and being deceived
as those that would, the bad figs, and unfortunately,
the ignorant will enjoy that basket of bad fruit,
thinking it’s delicious because they have not
studied the word of God in the simplicity in
which Christ teaches it. The Parable of the Fig Tree. He didn’t say maybe
you should learn it. He said learn it! Why? Because it makes the big
difference of where you stand in that generation. So, there you have
the very foundation. Why do you think Christ,
as he entered Jerusalem, would wilt that fig tree? Because it had no fruit on it, because he knew it wasn’t
even season for the fruit to be there, he did it to let
you know there are bad figs. He knows when harvest
is and he wilted it. So, therefore, learn the
Parable of the Fig Tree, it’s extremely important
as far as you understanding and comprehending
the final generation. Chapter 25, the great Book
of Jeremiah, we return there. Verse one, The word that
came to Jeremiah concerning all the people of Judah in
the fourth year of Jehoiakim the son of Josiah king of Judah, that was the first year of
Nebuchadrezzar king of Babylon. This is a very beautiful verse because what it does,
it sequences our time with Babylonian time. It lets you know,
as a matter of fact, when you take, Jehoiakim
only ruled for three months but it was counted
the year of Jehoiakim and down through the
ages with all the kings and the shortening, we
are able to fix this date very accurately and what you
have over the period of time from 4,000 B.C.
down to that time, you have 110 year mistake. In Appendix 83 through 86, you’ll find it in your Companion
Bible that deals with this subject and it is
a fantastic study but it brings those
two histories together
and dates them. From the mouth of the
prophet that was with God before the birth and then
during the time in the womb, made him a prophet, bringing
forth this good news. Verse two, The which
Jeremiah the prophet spake unto all the people of Judah, and to all the inhabitants
of Jerusalem, saying, verse three, From the
13th year of Josiah the son of Amon king of Judah, even unto this day, there is the three
and 20th year, the word of the Lord
hath come unto me, and I have spoken unto you, rising early and speaking;
but you have not hearkened. What is Jeremiah saying here? For 23 years, I have
tried to drum it into you that the false one is
coming, the antichrist, the false king, the king
of Babylon is coming, he’s going to
seduce this nation. You haven’t listened and
now it’s a fact, okay? It’s past history. Verse four, And the Lord hath
sent unto you all his servants the prophets, rising
early and sending them; but you have not hearkened,
nor inclined your ear to hear. And so it is that
God sends his word and the prophets to warn you that the false
Christ comes first so that you’re not deceived
and embarrassed and ashamed when the true
Christ does return, that you’ve been in
bed with the false one. This is why in that
same chapter of Mark that we read in Mark
chapter 13, he says, woe to you that are with
child when I return. He is speaking
spiritually, he means, I’ve been away for 2,000 years and if I come back and find
you suckling a small child, what does that mean? It means you’ve been unfaithful, spiritually speaking, okay? We have a jealous God
and he puts things down where the rubber meets the road that you can understand
he’s got emotions and he’s got feelings,
don’t catch yourself in that trap that
you would be ashamed when the true Christ returns
that you had been deceived by the false one when he
forewarned you over and over. Jeremiah says to
this bunch, 23 years I’ve drilled this into you. You will not listen. Verse five to continue, They said, Turn you again now
every one from his evil way, and from the evil of your
doings, and dwell in the land that the Lord hath
given unto you and to your fathers
for ever and ever. Enjoy it. Verse six, And go not after
other gods to serve them, lowercase, meaning not our
Father, and to worship them, and provoke me not to anger
with the works of your hands; and I will do you no hurt. This is, our Father never wants, he wants to love his
children, not hurt them. But what do you expect from him if you allow yourself
to be deceived and to not worship
the very Father who protects you from the embarrassment of being deceived
in the end times. You have that right
and that privilege to know and to understand
the word of God. Have you listened? Have you studied? Have you learned? That’s what Jeremiah’s
saying here. Through the Father of
his own mouth saying, if you’ll do it my way,
I will never hurt you. Quite the opposite. He protects you. Verse seven, Yet you have
not hearkened unto me, saith the Lord; that you
might provoke me to anger with the works of your
hands and to your own hurt. You do it to yourself over
and over and over and over. You don’t listen
to the word of God. He has ways of
evening things out. It is so simple to love
him, to follow him, he loved you enough that
he sent you this letter. It’s sent personally to you and to all of his children
to read, to understand, and to absorb his love. Whereby, you’re a
blessing to other people because you have that
truth, you have that word. What a time to live
now and serve the Lord. Don’t miss the next lecture, you’ll find out what
Father intends to do. Bless your hearts, you listen
a moment, won’t you please? – [Narrator] The Mark
of the Beast on CD is our free introductory
offer to you. What is the Mark of the Beast? Many false teachers
would have you believe it will be a tattoo
on your forehead or a computer chip
implanted under your skin. It is getting late in the game. You need to know what
the Mark of the Beast is. As it’s written in Revelation
chapter 13, verse eight, many will be deceived. There is no need for
you to be deceived. Christ said in Mark 13:23, behold, I have foretold
you all things. Jesus, indeed, told us
how not to be deceived and Pastor Arnold Murray takes
you on a step by step study of God’s word concerning
this critical subject, the mark of the beast. The telephone call is
free, the CD is free, we don’t even ask for the
shipping and handling, it is free as well. All you need to do
is call 800-643-4645 to request your one time,

800 number please. 1-800-643-4645. That number is good
from Puerto Rico throughout the US, Alaska,
Hawaii, all over Canada. If the Spirit moves and
you have a question, you share it, won’t you do that? Please never ask a question
about a particular reverend, denomination, or organization. We’re not gonna judge people. Why? We have a judge. It’s our Father and our
Father, he doesn’t like it when you start judging. You have the right to discern but that’s as far
as you go with it and discernment lets you
know what to have to do with and what not to do. So, let him know you love
him, that’s the main thing. You that listen by
shortwave around the world, it’s always a pleasure
hearing from you and your announcer at
the end of the hour will give you our
mailing address. Always a pleasure. Now, you got a prayer request? You don’t need that
number or an address, why? Because God knows
what you’re thinking. And your requests from
all around the world, we never forget them. Father never forgets them but you can go
straight to him, why? He loves you and he
wants that love returned. Let him know you
love him, won’t you? And be blessed. Father, around the globe we
come, we ask that you lead, guide, direct, Father, touch
in Yeshua’s precious name. Thank you, Father, amen. Okay, and question time, and we’re gonna go with
Deloris from Louisiana. What are the different
meanings of seed in the Bible? Is the word seed ever
used to mean money? Enclosed is a love offering. Well, and we appreciate that. Actually, the word seed
in the Greek, Hebrew, is (speaking foreign language), usually has to do with children but when Father uses a
talent which is a measure but it also means your
talents, your gifts from God, and the most important
gifts you have from God is the knowledge and the
wisdom to be able to plant that knowledge and share it
with somebody that’s troubled. By that I mean, it has
nothing to do with money. It is your talent of
being a child of God, to take a person that is
falling, that is hurt, and let that truth
build them up, give them a foundation. That’s planting the
talents that God gives you, to uphold, to lift up. That’s what is most important. Naturally, God expects
where you always tithe and give love offerings
where you are taught the word of God. Not necessarily, you certainly
don’t tithe God’s money to some house that does
not teach God’s word but you always tithe
where you’re taught, it’s just common sense. That keeps the
word coming to you. But when somebody tells you
where they’re not teaching God’s word and just
said money itself will get you something,
they’re lying to you. You know, this really
makes me really popular with some religious figures
when I’m real honest with you like this, you cannot
buy your way into heaven. It’s what’s in your heart and
your mind that is important. Well, then, does that mean I should not support God’s word? No, if you didn’t, you
wouldn’t have it, okay? But at the same time,
Father gives those that the word improves, makes happy. It has a worth
ship and so it is. Okay, Denise from Michigan. Denise, being an old combat
Marine myself, I understand where you’re at. Many friends I’ve left
on the battlefield. Haven’t left there
but lost them there. And I know that your son
is now with the Father but know this, he and his
buddies that are with him, were with him and still
are, God’s putting together an army there and
it’s coming with him and it’s only a temporary thing, you’ll be back with
him and we just praise God that these people
that serve this nation, that give us the freedom
to teach God’s word as we’re allowed to
do under the laws and the freedom of
this great nation. Jackie from Michigan,
I would like to know in Hosea chapter
12, verse three, does this refer
to Cain and Abel? Keep up the good
news and bless you all at Shepherd’s Chapel. No. The heel grabber or
supplanter is Jacob, okay? That’s what the
word Jacob means, heel grabber or supplanter. While he was yet in the womb,
he grabbed his brother’s heel so he couldn’t be born
at first and so forth. So, therefore, he
is called that. That’s why God would say, I chose, I loved Jacob and
Esau I’ve hated while they were still
in their mother’s womb. God was well in control
of the whole operation. Jewel from Arkansas, I am
scheduled to have surgery and they are going
to use cadaver bones. I am not sure if this
is okay in God’s eyes. The Bible says not to
partake of the dead. Please let me know this is okay. Well, the bone is not dead. And the spirit of the person
is already with the Father. If the bone was dead, you
wouldn’t be allowed to use it. It would not grow. The reason it grows,
it’s not dead. And my estimation, there’s nothing wrong
with transplant of an eye or a kidney or some part of the
body that is very, you see, what the
word states concerning partaking of the blood
has to do with how you butcher an animal you’re
going to eat and take because of health laws
that we didn’t always have refrigeration and if you didn’t
bleed an animal properly, it would putrefy. It was not fit to eat. So, but, at the same
time, we’re not to touch the dead dead which is,
that’s one of the words of the fallen angels,
even, but bone that is able to be used to build up and
so forth, that’s no problem. In my estimation, God would, it’s not dead, it lives or you wouldn’t be
having it implanted. Gail from Virginia,
when Christ returns and the earth is
cleansed and beautiful, will we all be in spiritual
form as we inhabit the earth? Absolutely. First Corinthians chapter 15, verse 52 will
document that for you. In an instant, in the twinkle
of an eye, that quick, we’re changed into
our spiritual bodies. You see, your spiritual
body is in here already and it is with you, it is, your flesh body is simply
a habitation for it while you’re here on this earth. Your, really, eternal
body lies within that. Tip from Florida, Revelation
chapter four, verse one, please explain. I feel like probably the reason
you want me to explain this, as many people say, well,
this is where the rapture is and that’s false, okay? Revelation chapter
four, verse one, is God speaking to John. Not to the church,
not to somebody else, he’s speaking specifically
to John, the revelator. And what is he saying? Well, if you go all the way
back to chapter one, verse 10, it says John was taken
to the Lord’s Day. Well, what is the Lord’s Day? The Lord’s Day is the millennium and what God is saying in
that chapter four, verse one, John, come up here, I want to show you things
that are about to happen and things that have happened
so that you can write them in the Book of Revelation
where all people will understand what
happens in the millennium and even after the
millennium and what happens just before the millennium. It’s a beautiful
thing to have a book, the Revelation, the
word revelation, whatever language you
wanna translate it in it means the uncovering,
the unveiling, meaning to make it known,
what happens to us. That’s just like it says,
God always foretells us. That’s the meaning of Revelation
chapter four, verse one. And John did a good job of it. Father picked him real good. He relates it where
we can understand. Valerie from Louisiana, is your name in the Book
of Life when you are born or do you earn that with works? Your name was in
the Book of Life even in the first earth age,
long before you were born. Let me document that for you. Jacob, I have loved, Esau I hated while they were
still in their mother’s womb. Esau was in, Jacob was
in the Book of Life and so was Esau. From the first earth age. The reason God hated
Esau was not for not but for the fact
that he was no good. He didn’t care anything
about his heritage, he didn’t love God, he didn’t
in the first earth age, he didn’t in this
one, and who knows, maybe he will in
the one to come. That’s up to God’s
judgment and Esau himself but naturally, our
book, the Book of Life, began when we were
created even to this day. There is no such
thing as preexisted. We have always existed. God is not the God of the dead
but the God of the living. That may be a little
heavy for some but it’s quite simple. When you did not cease existing, when you were born
into this body but simply the spirit
body was transferred into the flesh body and will
go back to the Father himself when the flesh dies. Ecclesiastes chapter 12,
verses six and seven. Chris from Tennessee, is the Holy Spirit
guiding your conscience that tells you right from wrong? Well, you must remember,
we have the Holy Spirit but we have our own spirit and some people
have a good spirit and some people
have an evil spirit. It’s according to what
you do with your spirit. Your spirit is your intellect and your ability to
manage your soul. Now, many, for example,
I dedicated my spirit to teaching God’s word
to share the truth in making a study of God’s
word to simplify those things that might be difficult
where it would simplify them that anyone could
understand a direct flow of the living word of God. Now, or, you could
take that same spirit, your spirit, and
choose to be an outlaw or some other type. But a good spirit can
be a combat marine protecting those that
he loves, our nation, our constitution, it can be
anyone of any military branch that feels dedicated
to protecting a people whereby their freedoms of
religion and freedom to live in peace is protected, then that also is a spirit
that’s being used mightily. Some might disagree with
that be that as it may, doesn’t matter, but it’s,
man’s spirit usually chooses. You see, if you say the
Holy Spirit totally controls what we think and or
do in our conscience, then we could even blame our
faults on the Holy Spirit. That won’t get it, if you
understand that I mean. The Holy Spirit
will use God’s elect but we have our own spirits
and those spirits are, they are what
intuitively lets you know whether you’re doing
right or wrong. The Holy Spirit, God’s
presence with us, he will thump your gourd if
you get too far out of line as one of God’s elect, why? Because he loves you
but that’s not a thing of your conscience, you control your own
conscience basically. Okay, Linda from Illinois, okay, I have a, I have heard you say that this
is the eighth day creation which is the bloodline through
which Christ would come. Is there any place in the
Bible that makes this clear or any information
that verifies this? Looking forward to the answer. Well, you can verify
it by studying with me where I take you in
the Hebrew manuscripts and teach you to read
the sixth day creation and the eighth. The difference between
Adam and Eth-ha-Adam, in the manuscripts. But in the simple
English translation, Linda, where did Cain go when he
was driven from the garden? Well, let me see, he
went to the Land of Nod. Oh? Well, where is that? Well, what did he do while
he was in the Land of Nod? Well, he took a wife. Whoa, where did she come from? From the sixth day
creation, okay? Well, the proof is there, it’s just a matter of reading
it with understanding. But if you really
are interested, if you get the video of the
first six chapters of Genesis, I even teach you how to
read the actual manuscripts that documents there
was a sixth day and an eighth day creation. Right from the
word of God, okay? Tiffany from Carolina,
I would like to know when we start living
in the third earth age, will we remember ourselves
living in the flesh in the second earth age or
will our memories be wiped out as they are now about
the first earth age? Well, our memories are blocked
out about the first earth age for a reason. Many of the people
fell, slipped, and God wants to know what
you will make up your mind finally being in the flesh, whether you’re going
to love him or Satan. He wants to know. Therefore, he blocked your
mind from what happened before, born totally innocent so that you would learn
from the letter he sent you. Are they going to read
what he wants to know or are they going to read the
letter I’m going to send them whereby they’re not deceived
again or are they going to be the same old person
that was deceived before where I know I can count
on my election to assist and bringing the word
to pass as it’s written? He wants to know whether
people are deserving of heaven or hell and
he’s the one that judges. Okay, Barbara from Missouri, what do you think about
the James Moffatt Bible? I have one that was given to me. The James Moffatt Bible is
an excellent translation. Dr. Moffatt brought
his translation forth in the early 30s where
it was very unpopular to say there was
a different Bible. I mean, boy, I mean, well
this is the King James, this is the Bible that
Paul had I’ll stick with it and I will go down
with the ship. Well, Paul never observed this, it wasn’t written
’til 1611, okay? And it all comes from
the original or copies of the original translations. Dr. Moffatt even
used the sacred names but he wrote in
his first edition, he apologized to the scholar
for not using the sacred name because he said people
are so judgmental about me even bringing a
translation out much less using Yeshua and Yehova, so he dropped the sacred names. But probably one of
the excellent things about the Moffatt Bible
to the student is that sometimes copyist tangled
the chapters and verses up. And Dr. Moffatt
puts them in order. I have not found any
noticeable errors in his realigning the Scriptures. He was a genius and
this is why sometimes you will hear me say I
cannot let this stand, I must correct this, it’s
either from Bullinger or Moffatt calling it to our attention. Okay, excellent work. Louisiana, I’m sorry,
LA from South Carolina, I study with you every
day, I love your teaching. God has truly blessed,
well, thank you, I appreciate that, my question, can the Holy Spirit
speak through us when we’re still in
these flesh bodies? And my second question
is, does God have prophets walking this earth today? Yeah, we’ve just
covered one, Jeremiah. His spirit still walks the
earth because we have his word. There will be prophets
because when the sons and daughters are delivered
up before the false messiah, then and then only will the Holy Spirit
speak through them and they will prophesy and
the word, the real truth, will come forth, you can
read of it in Mark 13 or you can read of it in
the great Book of Joel in chapter two. But the Holy Spirit can
and will at that time. This is what the example
of the Holy Spirit on Pentecost Day in
Acts chapter two. Was that spoken of
by Joel the prophet and it won’t happen until Joel
the prophet said it would. Cheryl from Florida, it is true, God works in mysterious ways. After many years of
trying to cure my husband of a bad habit, I gave
up, then the other day, he was, he said a
fellow golfer told him he was going to hell for
swearing using Jesus’ name when he messed up. I told him it is not
the unpardonable sin but it does show bad
manners and poor breeding so he should not do it. This situation got
me to thinking about the third Commandment and
now it is really bothering me that I shall not take the
name of the Lord God in vain for the Lord will not
hold him guiltless. This is something that
is a habitual liar. It is not someone, you really have it
pretty well right. If someone has, in ignorance,
that means to not know any better, uses the
Lord’s name as a cuss word, that’s forgivable but
when someone absolutely says there is no God,
never has been a God, never will be a God,
we have no Father, that is denying that
our Father even exists and that’s taking his
name and trashing it. That’s what it’s talking about. You can pick up on this in
the first Epistle of John. Read chapter one and two
and discern the difference between a sinner and
an habitual sinner. There is a difference. And between chapter one and two of the First Epistle of John, you will be able
to ascertain that. Okay, I’m out of time. Hey, I love you all
because you enjoy studying our Father’s word chapter
by chapter, verse by verse, but most important,
God loves you for it. It makes his day. And when you, and I
am talking to you, when you make his day, boy,
is he gonna make yours. You know why? Because he loves you, he
wants you to return that love. Bless him, he will
always bless you. We are brought to you by
your tithes and offerings. If we have helped you, you
help us keep coming to you. Won’t you do that? Again, blessing God, he
will always bless you. Most important, though,
you listen to me, and you listen good now,
you stay in his word. Every day in his
word is a good day, even with trouble. Do you know why? Because Jesus Yeshua,
he is the living word. – [Narrator] Hearing God’s
